Move Multiple Columns From Multiple Worksheets Into 1 Column
Aug 18, 2007
I have an excel workbook with 8 worksheets. Each worksheet has vertical columns (approx 250 columns per sheet) of numeric data. Is there a function or macro that will combine all of this data into one vertical column without having to individually cut and paste each one into the new column?
I am trying to move information that is pulled from a database to look cleaner and easier to read. All of the information exports out into column A only. The attachment is a brief example of what it looks like, and what Iím trying to get it to look like.
I want to move the data in col A to 5 columns C through G in groups of 16 rows. Once the last column is filled with a group of 16, it needs to fill below the first group of 16 in column B onward to column F. It should repeat this process until there is no more data in A. The attachment shows it much better than i can explain it.
I have some basic experience with formulas and macros, but I havenít had any luck trying to manipulate any of them to give me the information the way I have shown. I would prefer to not have to manually type or cut and past the information in if possible.
How can you move data from multiple columns into a single column? I have attached a short example of the data I receive. (In reality, the data could be hundreds of columns and/or hundreds of rows, but this is representative of what I might receive). It does not need to be sorted and including the header row in its own column is optional. I do not know VBA all that well but can muddle through it if someone can give me an example of what the code should look like.
Column A | Column B | Column C Los Angeles | Fire Dept | 3 Los Angeles | Health Services | 12 New York | Fire Dept | 8 New York | Health Services | 22 New York | Internal Services | 100 New York | Public Works | 7 Chicago | Health Services | 15 Chicago | Public Works | 56 Chicago | Social Services | 4
And I am trying to make it look like this:
Fire Dept Health Services Internal Services Public Works Social Services
I saw this thread from June Cut & Paste Macro: Move Address From Column To Row and I think this what I would like to have my macro do. I have one column which is copied and pasted as text in excel and there is several blank rows.
I attached the spreadsheet example - it has 40 lenders, with the top row being the lender name (A1), followed by address(A2), city-state (A3), two blank rows(A4-A5), lender type (A6), approved date (A7), one blank row (A8), lender specialty (A9), telephone (A10) , e-mail address(A11) and two blanks rows (A12-A13) and A14 starts over again. For this example there should be 8 columns and 40 rows (lender name, address, etc...). As I mentioned I think the previous thread's macro would work with some minor tweaks. I couldn't figure out the best way to handle the blank rows and or remove the blanks and what to add or take out of the macro code.
I'm making a Excel list for trading cards (MTG) and I've divided it into different worksheets in order to sort it by the color of the cards (not really important I guess).
The issue I have is that I want it to copy certain columns (in this case C3:C1000, F3:F1000, G3:1000 ) from almost all of the worksheets into a new worksheet where it should paste them into column A, B and C.
In two of the worksheets it's also different (C3:C1000 , G3:G:1000, H3:H1000).
I've seen many where you copy one range from multiple worksheets, and that would've been okay I guess if not those two worksheets were different. I'd prefer not to change them, and I'd also prefer if I could've gotten just the information I needed also. Is this possible to do?
I have a summary sheet where I am trying to move data from 20 to 30 different worksheets (in the same workbook). I am refrencing a code from column a in the summary sheet. Then I want to lookup that code in a column in a different worksheet then go down 150 rows and over 1 column to return the value from that cell.

So I am trying to use vlookup to find the code "a6sh" in a worksheet, then once I find that code (column), I need to go down 150 rows and return that cell value into the "prep" cell. The value in the "prep" cell is an average of the 150 rows, one column over from "a6sh". I don't want to have to do this manually.
I am trying to consolidate information from multiple (atleast two or more) worksheets (in the same workbook) into a single sheet.
The worksheets have identical column headings. There are 4 columns in each worksheet. The first three columns are text strings (and some cell in these columns may be blank). The fourth column is an integer. The number of rows in each worksheet is most likely to vary. Within a worksheet the rows are unique. However, some rows may be duplicated across worksheets.
To reiterate, here's what I am trying to do.
Step 1. Create a summary sheet.
Step 2. When there is a unique row (identified by the first three cells in that row) across worksheets then I have that row as is in my summary sheet.
Step 3. When there are duplicate rows (identified by the first three cells in that row) across worksheets, I want to add up the cell in the fourth column associated with those row in my summary sheet
I have tried union (works only within a sheet), consolidate (works only with a single column). I don't need the sophistication of a pivot table but simply an aggregation of data
I am trying to do this using macros (within an add-in)
I have enclosed a sample workbook with the expected output. I created this workbook by hand in an attempt to clarify my problem statement.
I found this code on Ozgrid to sort all columns of a worksheet that were continuous with no gaps or spaces that works well:
Sub CopyToA() Do While ActiveCell <> "" Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.End(xlDown)).Cut Destination:=Range("a65535").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0) ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select Loop End Sub
However, I've tried to manipulate the code myself to 1) find all columns that aren't empty then 2) sort each column individually (WITHOUT expanding the sort to other columns) and 3) combining all the numbers into one seperate column. There are many posts concerning sorting but not one that addressed this particular situation.
I am trying to write a macro that will take data from column A and use it as a column header in column C, and then take the corresponding data in column B and list it under the column header in column C. When the value in column A changes it will move on to column D and then list the corresponding data from column B underneath it in column D until all of the data in the 2 columns is spread across the worksheet. Example:..............
I have a number of worksheets and need to move data from the same cells of each work sheet to a summary worksheet. I manually entered the cell id's for the first sheet.
Example =Jan!M6, =Jan!N7, =Jan!O9 etc.
I know I should be able to automatically enter these same cells for the remainder of my worksheets with out manually going in and typing each one (there are a lot of entries.) I just can not remember how to do it. The next sheet is named "Feb" and "Mar" etc.
I want to create a chart where I have 5 clustered columns, repeating 4 times(weeks). Each column(total invoices entered per user) has a error rate, which I would like to display as a line graph with markers. In other works, first column has its own line, second column has its own line etc. this spans the 4 weeks. When I create the chart now, ALL 5 the line markers are placed in the same one column. I can not move the line marker to sit on top of the column it is associated with.
I have column A and it has 1000 rows, every row has a number in it, from 5000 to 5200, meaning that some numbers are presented multiple times in column A.
I need to lose repetitions, so every number is in the the table only one time and then I need to convert this one long column into, for example, 9 columns, so there's no wasting of space and have only one column in every page, if printed out.
I'm currently doing a survey using an excel workbook that contains multiple questions across multiple worksheets using radio buttons linked to certain cells.
I have around 400 workbooks coming back to me, so what i want to do is take specific values from across many worksheets within each workbook and combine them into a large master table in a seperate workbook.
I've tried using VBA, but not being very proficient at it i've hit a brick wall with that, so i'm hoping that there is an easier way to do it than what i'm currently pursuing.
I have been trying to sum the data in each column on each tab of my workbook by month and year into one pivot table on a new summary worksheet within the workbook. In the summary pivot table, I would like to be able to select the description as labeled on the tab and a year or month and have the respective totals for each tab and set of columns displayed. The column headings may or may not be the same for each tab. I've been able to separate the data for each tab and summarize without dates or sum the data in columns by date via a pivot table, but I have not been able to consolidate the data for both tabs, with the option to select the month and year, in one pivot table.
I have Folder with almost 21 or 22 Excel files depending on the working days in a month,
All I am trying to do is to run a Macro so that Column C and D from Sheet Name "Resource Count" from all Workbooks of Different Names from all the files from that folder to be copied and pasted to a new Workbook one after the other in new workbook.
To clarify, Each workbook in that folder will have a sheet named "Resource Count" and I want to copy Column C and Column D from all the workbooks from the folder and paste one after other in a new work book.
I wanted to see if it were possible to combine multiple worksheets into one new worksheet, but without duplicating columns with the same heading, enabling the data to fall into the correct column if it's shared in multiple worksheets, and adding columns if their unique. Furthermore, if there are a few "leading" columns, i.e. ones that are shared in every sheet and never move from where they are, to include those as the leading columns in the new sheet. I'm unable to post an attachment, but I'll try to paint a picture. This is on a much smaller scale than intended, but I want to combine Sheet 1 and Sheet 2 to form Sheet 3 (which I've manually copied to look how I would want it to look if the formula/code works properly). Columns A, B, and C are the "leading" columns I was referencing, whereas any of the following columns may or may not be shared in the various worksheets, but should still be included and combined if they're the same. There also might be a different number of columns depending on the sheet. I consider myself somewhat of an intermediate user, and I am familiar with using VBA codes for formulas should that be the proper remedy.
I have Master sheet where I collect info from sub sheets. All sheets are similarly formatted, ie. product numbers on column A and headers on row 2. I need to sum values from all sheets based product number and header. Master sheet includes all product numbers and some extra headers, sub sheets include only needed numbers. Headers on sub sheets are identical.
Currently I have this thing solved with following formula:
But problem with this is that column is hard coded, so I have to know that that value I am looking for is in column L. That wouldn't be show stopping problem on its own, but I have columns all the way to DR and copying formulas for each column takes a lot of time when I have to manually update each column. Just copying cell holds that L:L and doesn't change it.
So, in addition of getting values for specific product number I need to get values from specific column based on column header.
I have many worksheets named with client names and in different order from what I see in VB.
How can I copy cell C6 from each sheet into a column somewhere (it doesnt matter)
But the order of worksheets is messed up (On VB Sheet1 is in 3d place sheet2 is in 10nth place ... and so on) I need the vales to be pasted in the order of which I see the worksheets when I open the file.
I am working on a task analysis involving functions performed by different operators, each function marked by an "X" and totaled at the bottom of each operator column. I have seven sheets, named "Main Engine, Propulsion System, APU and ELEC.", etc. Columns B-F on each sheet are headed "C/M, Engr, Nav, LM, DE" respectively.
I need to add/total the bottom figure in each column (total of number of X's for each column) on a separate, final worksheet. Each of the worksheets contains a different number of functions, therefore the total of X's in each column is listed in a different cell# on each worksheet.
So this is my dilemma as the thread title states: I need to be able to sum/total the amount form different cell numbers (same column) across different worksheets into a cell in a separate, final worksheet.
I have figured out how to do this if the numbers are in the same cell across worksheets, but not varying cells by column.
I've got 2 worksheets SH1 & SH2( Two different workbooks) Col A is NAME in each Sheet. Need to Match Col A Sheet 2 to Col A Sh1 if they are identical. If identical copy info from Col B, and Col E- G to Sheet 1 Col B and Col H-J. If a Name is in Sh2 but not in Sh1, Copy (using same Column positions: copy info from Col B, and Col E- G to Sheet 1 Col B and Col H-J ) to NEXT AVAILABLE ROW in Sh1 COL A, and highlight it in Some bright color ; Then open a MSG Box telling me how many new names were added.
I am hoping to create a drop down list of months in one sheet, and when I select a certain month, columns in about 10 other worksheets in the same workbook will either hide or unhide columns...
The spreadsheet is laid out with columns (C-N) for each month in the year, for actuals, then columns for budget and budget variance (O-P), then YTD Actual, YTD Budget and YTD Variance. When I select September, for example, I want October-December to hide, and leave Jan-Sep unhidden, while keeping the budget, YTD and variance columns.
what i want to do is 1 have a workbook with 3 worksheets. Sheet1 contains the columns:
Reference No. Line Item No. Amount Date 1 3 500 12/01 2 4 900 01/01 Sheet2:
Reference No. Line Item No. Quantity PersonInCharge 1 3 10 Kim 5 6 60 Noel
For sheet 3, what i want to happen is that when i run the VBA macro, it searches through both worksheets (Sheet1 and Sheet2), finding rows that have matching Reference No. AND Line Item No. and combine all of the columns (and values) for that particular row into another row in Sheet 3. So for the above data set, the resulting data in Sheet 3 would be:
Reference No. Line Item No. Amount Date Quanity PersonInCharge 1 3 500 12/01 10 Kim
As this is the only entry in both sheet1 and sheet2 where there is a matching reference and line item no.
