Merge Workbooks Into One Workbook Without Losing Macros And VBA Codes
Aug 3, 2012
I have 4 different workbooks that I want to merge into one workbook. I tried moving the sheets from these workbooks into one workbook but to my surprise all the vba / macros didn't transfer over to the other workbook.
I searched here but all I can find were people that wanted to make a summary workbook or merge workbooks into a worksheet which isn't what i want to do.
I just want to simply merge these workbooks into one workbook without losing all the marco and vba stuff that are in each workbook.
I would like to merge multiple workbooks into a master workbook. All the individual workbooks are identical and only have 1 sheet, and I would like to append them to the master as worksheets then sum them all together. The front sheet showing the totals from all the merged ones.
I am trying a macro to merge cell without losing the data until I find a next cell with the data - This merging should be pertain only for the column selected. Is it possible to write a macro and preform this activity.
In the attached file (I'm sorry it is zipped, it was just too big), I gave you a snippet of my database. The actual one has 9000+ records. Over in Y4, you'll see the Sum of all the amounts (column X). Run the first macro, that is, Copy Dups, and you'll see it splits the item up by the numbers in column N. This works perfectly (or so it appears.) Then, run the Summary macro (the only other macro in there) and you will see that it pulls the Sums of each spreadsheet and places them on one nice overview page. The summary page. The only problem is, the total of the subtotals on the summary page do not match the total on the main (unadultered) page. I hope i am explaining this right. Somewhere in the macros, I am losing data from my spreadsheets so that the summary page is not equal to the un-macro'd data. /scratches head
I am trying to implement the idea of creating an application with two workbooks: a hidden code workbook (CodeWb) that holds all of the forms and macros, and a separate visible data workbook (DataWb) that uses the macros in CodeWb. The DataWb houses a little bit of VBA code to open the CodeWb, which then supplies the programming power to handle click events, etc., performed by the user in the DataWb.
I have advanced to the point of being able to open CodeWb from DataWb and trigger execution of a macro named "DataFileOpen" in CodeWb. This macro initializes things in DataWb and creates buttons there on a particular sheet, using the line:
So far so good. This works fine. My problem is that nothing happens when I click on the buttons created in DataWb, with their event handling code residing in CodeWb. Obviously, I'm missing something that maintains a connection between the two workbooks.
How can I use the code in CodeWb to handle all events occurring in DataWb?
I have the following seven codes used to fill a ListBox with data retrieved form a range (DACNRange).. they are almost the same .. the only difference between them is the range column number (highlighted with red). Instead of these seven similar codes, Can we create a general code replaces them all?

I have a rather complex situation that I'm not sure how to handle. First let me provide some background on what I have accomplished thus far.
Background: I have an excel file with two worksheets. Worksheet two, named Data, is where all my data is located. It begins with A1 going through JC4 (A1:JC4). However, for the purpose of my project the data I'm concerned with starts on E1 through JC4. Also, every other column is formatted with ="".
I have used the following sequence of commands, obtained from a website, to make it much simpler to define name ranges:
Select the worksheet "Data"Select cell A1Select the current region using CTRL + SHIFT + 8Press CTRL + G to bring up the Go To dialog boxClick on the "Special" button to bring up the Go To Special dialog boxSelect "Constants" and press the ENTER key (or click the "OK" button)Now define the Named Ranges using your selection by pressing CTRL + SHIFT + F3Excel will ask you to "Create names from values in the:" Make sure only "Top row" is selected, then press the ENTER key (or click the "OK" button)Check that the correct named ranges have been defined by opening the Name Manager with CTRL + F3 While I have defined named ranges with the above steps, this is not the same as a dynamic named range. At least I don't think its the same thing.
I have also protected the worksheet to prevent anyone from changing the formatting. Note: the top row of each column that contains information has been designated as the name for the information that comes after it (see step 8 and 9 above). Now, my first worksheet is where I have created conditional drop down screen by using data validation. The drop down screen are conditionally formatted. Meaning depending on the selection from the drop down screen in cell E27 will determine the list on the drop down screen in cell F27, and so on through cell H27. Furthermore, the drop down items on:
1) Cell E27 (in the first worksheet) are located on the second worksheet in cells E1, G1, I1, K1. Each of those columns have a list of items that fall under them.
The lay out of the data worksheet is too combursome to list out, but I have attached a picture. IF you follow the data you will see some of the information is listed in two cells, for conditional formatting purposes. I have also attached a picture of worksheet 1 with the drop down screens.
Code 1: (allows the selection of multiple items in one cell separated by a comma)

Code 2: (allows for manually adding directly to the drop down list a new item that is not on the list. It will then add it to the list after the hard entry directly to the drop down menu). Remember the list will be on the Data worksheet, worksheet #2. The drop down menus are on the first worksheet).

I have added the first code by right clicking on the worksheet and viewing the code, then adding Code 1. It works beautifully.
What I'm trying to figure out is how to add Code 2 to the mix with out unding Code 1. I'm trying to either combine the codes or insert the second code without disrupting Code 1. Remember I have already created a defined name range in my Data worksheet for all my columns/information. I tried deleting Code 1 and only inserting Code 2 but it didnt work. Code 2 does not work based on how I have designed the formatting. How do I apply Code 2 to what I have done thus far? Can this be done by bypassing a dynamic name range, since I have already assigned a defined name range? I want both codes to apply to Columns E, F, G, and H on the first worksheet.
I have three source workbooks that needed to be consolidated into a master workbook pasting the data with values & formatting.
The Master workbook also contains 6 additional worksheets that link to the data pulled in from the source files. My question is how do I write the code so the source files populate the master in a specific order. For example, the 3 source files are named "Central" "NED" and "WEST" and I need them to populate the master workbook in that order.
This is the code I am using to consolidate the data:
Option Explicit Sub ConsolidateSheetsFromWorkbooks() 'Author: Jennifer Starr 'Date: 7/12/2013 'Summary: Open all files in a folder and merge data (stacked) on all
I have two macros and I would like to assign them both to one button. How to make a connection between these two codes in VBA? the macro should first sort the columns: A and B and then compare them. Here are two codes that need to be connected:
I have 2 macros ready and i need to merge it to one to make it run.
First macros will do the calculation and the other is adopted from a website as an sample to display % of process. Now the issue is i don't know how to merge it. Can any one help me to setup this file please. Copy of sample file is attached for your reference.
VB: Sub Premium() Dim ws As Worksheet, ws1 As Worksheet, ws2 As Worksheet Dim cel As Range, cel2 As Range, cel3 As Range, cel4 As Range, found As Range, rng As Range, age As Variant
The company I work for have several templates in the map xlstart. They want that all the macros that are present in these templates can be merged into one template. Is it possible to do that without using VBA?
Because they want a solution that everyone can use without knowing a thing about VBA.
I have 5 worksheets, representing data from 5 days, M-F. On a weekly basis I open all 5 files and manually copy, and paste all into one large weekly file. Does not take very long so I am probably just being lazy but if I could find a simple solution to merge all 5 into one quickly it would be great.
The one solution I was planning on implementing was to cycle through all OPEN workbooks, copy the data into a new workbook, and close each workbook as the copy and paste is done. This will work but to me its 'dirty'. Each workbook only has one Worksheet.
I have 24differnet workbooks each with one sheet with data. Each sheet has the sae headers with differen amounts of info under the headers. I am looking for a quick way to get all 24 sheets in to one workbook instead of copying and paste.
I have a client that I process their data every Monday and am already using some VBA code on it. I receive their data in four workbooks that have the same name every week. CABAM_U262.XLS CABAM_U265.XLS CABOB_U262.XLS CABOB_U265.XLS and the files are put in the same subdirectory every week: D:HealthcareNewBusiness
What I'd like to do is run some VBA code that would automatically look in this subdirectory for the four files and merge the rows of account data (rows 2 - the last used row and columns A - S) from these four workbooks into one workbook and have the header row from any of the four workbooks (they're all the same) placed in the new "merged" workbook at row 1. Could anyone provide to me the VBA code that would do this?
Each month I run 2 separate reports and have macros that break each report out by distributor. The end result is each spreadsheet creates a new tab and new workbook for each distributorís information. Each spreadsheet has information for 30 distributors, so I end up with 60 new tabs and 60 new workbooks.
Example: Spreadsheet one separates detailed sales information for: Abc Company 123 Company Misc. Company
Spreadsheet two separates summary sales information for: Abc Company 123 Company Misc. Company
Currently, I save each spreadsheets new workbooks in a different folder because each spreadsheet creates workbooks with the same distributor name. I then go back and open each spreadsheet with the same name and move a sheet from one workbook to the other and resave. Now I am trying to figure out the best way to merge these back together and am struggling with where to start.
I could keep opening each of the 2 new spreadsheets that are alike and copy or move sheets but with 30 new tabs to move to the matching spreadsheet it becomes time consuming. Iím hoping thereís a better way!
Iíve attached the Sales Detail Example and Sales Summary Example to see how the spreadsheets are being broken out but had to remove some data to trim down file sizes.
I have been looking everywhere and I can't seem to find what I am looking for. I want to create a Macro that will go into a folder, search every Workbook (each with multiple Worksheets), and copy and paste the data onto a single Worksheet. The data that I want will begin in Row 3 of each Worksheet (the first two rows are titles and headers). The formatting will be the same for each sheet.
The only other part is that Column G has the following formula in each cell that I would like to keep if possible.
Two support staff added data to the same base document. I now have two files that I need to combine into one. Is there a way to merge the two together so that I have one workbook that contains all the information entered by both users? We use Excel 2007.
I'm sure that there is an excel function that can do this but darned if I can figure out which one it is. This is what I would like to do: I have two different workbooks. Each workbook has one worksheet that has two columns of data. The first column is a part number and the second column is a price. The first workbook holds my master data. Starting at the first column of the first row on the second workbook I wish to compare the part number held in that cell with the part numbers held in the first column of the first workbook. If there is a match then I want to take the associated price from the second workbook and place it in a cell to the right of the corresponding part number in the first book - actually in the first open cell in the third column. I wish to do this automatically via macro, or otherwise, for all part numbers in the second workbook. The macro will also need to recognize that some part numbers in the second workbook may not appear in the first workbook in which case that part number is skipped.
The end product is my first workbook that has been transformed from two columns of data to three columns of data - one part number and two price points although not all part numbers will have the two price points. If it helps I can copy the data in the second workbook and paste it in to a second worksheet in the first workbook and do all the work in the one workbook.
I have had a good look around and have found some scripts that look like they can help but do not. here is my situation
I have 300+ questionaires in excel that contain around 20 questions with each question having the possibility of 5 answers i.e A1 A1Do you like this service, answers will be scored in cells F1,G1,H1,I1,J1
What I would like is for a master document to combine all the data into 1 document so I will know how many of the 300 have F1,G1 etc.
In the filed F1 the variable may be X or it may be a number, I would like to add up the number of non blanks in that field, from 300+ closed workbooks
I need to use to prepare for analysis a large set of individual participants' Excel data files collected using a psychological reaction-time experiment (a modified Stroop task). This experiment was created using a program called Superlab by Cedrus, so I posted an inquiry at the Superlab forum [url]. Their tech support suggested I might need to use macros in Excel but couldn't offer further assistance. I'll try to briefly describe (a) our Stroop task, (b) the operations I'm trying to carry out, and (c) the format of the individual Excel files,
Our Stroop task: The participant gets some instructions and practice trials, then a series of stimulus words are presented one word at a time in the center of a computer monitor in one of several colors. Word presentation order is randomized for each participant. The participant must press a key corresponding to the color of each word as quickly as possible. For each keypress (including the spacebar, pressed on instructions screens), the reaction time (in msec) is recorded in their Excel spreadsheet under the 'Reaction Time' variable. The 'Error Code' variable indicates whether the participant pressed the correct (C) or incorrect (E) color key in each trial. There are 8 types of words for a total of 48 trials. (Actually, 4 sets of emotion words and 4 sets of control-animal words, each set composed of 6 words each. The task basically measures how much peoplesí attention is captured by emotionally relevant cues in the environment.)
For each participant's data, I need an efficient way (macros?) to: (1) clean it [i.e. discard or ignore the instruction & practice trials as well as trials where the participant was too impulsive (reaction time < 100 msec), too distracted (rt > 3000 msec), or gave the wrong color response (Error Code= E)] (2) determine whether enough valid trials remain for further analysis (>39 trials), and if so: (3) calculate a mean reaction time score for each of the 8 word types [where denominator for each word type is based on # remaining (non-discarded) trials for that word type] (4) merge each participant's summarized data as single rows in a common spreadsheet (for importation and further analyses in SPSS), like this: --------------------------- ID#...... MeanRTW1.......MeanRTW2...... (etc. for word types 3-8) 101.......1056................2013............... 102.......2148................2594............... 103... ---------------------------
Excel File Format: I've attached a sample file, and here's a simplified overview of a spreadsheet (irrelevant columns and some rows removed). First the ID number is recorded (e.g., 393E), then some unnecessary junk (exp name & date, intro, practice, instructions), then data for the 48 actual trials of interest: ------------------------------------------- ........A...............B..................C.................D............ 1 393E 2 stroop.xpt 3 Wed Jan 1, 12:33:00 2008 4 5 6 Trial Name.....Trial No..... Error Code.....ReactionTime 7 introduction..... 1................C............561243 8 practice.......... 2................C............... 2062 9 red-worried........14.............C................1001 (*the first practice trial) 10 (9 more practice trial rows, deleted here) 19 instructions........3..............C................5000 20 red-chicken......19..............E............... 1205 21 blue-tense.......32...............C.................782 * (46 more actual trial rows, deleted here) --------------------------------------------------
To clarify: -The variable 'Trial Name' indicates nominally what stimulus was presented for each trial. -The variable 'Trial No.', indicates the unique numerical marker for each stimulus word. (It probably should have been labeled 'Word Type'. It doesn't reflect the order of stimulus presentation. E.g., the word "tense" is always 'Trial No.' 32 for all participants, regardless of when it presents.) -A subset of actual trial words (e.g., worried) were also used for the 10 practice trials. Thus, the 10 practice trials must first somehow be discarded or flagged to be ignored before calculating average reaction times for the remaining 48 actual trials.
