Open File And Move Cell Data To New Workbook

Sep 12, 2006

I created a new workbook that contains a list of additional design requirements than our old checklist. These requirements are answered by placing a 1, 0 or .5 in the cell next to the requirement (1 = yes, 0 = no and .5 for half credit). I can't simply go to the old workbook/worksheet and copy the results into the new workbook/worksheet as the rows of requirements don't match up since some requirmements have been deleted and new ones added between the old and new checklists.
I created a command button in the new checklist and what I want it to do is:
- open a dialog box that lets me select the old checklist file (these are all excel files, but with different names).
- go the the proper worksheet in the old file (DFT Checklist) and copy a column of results from the old checklist ("DFT Checklist" worksheet) and paste them into the proper cells of the new checklist ("DFT Checklist" worksheet).
- The macro would know (i'll have to tell it) which requirements and cells are still valid answers between the old checklist and the new one. It would disregard requirements that are no longer in the new checklist.
- Once complete, it would close the old checklist without saving.

Use Cell Data To Open File/Workbook

Aug 24, 2006

I have a cell that is pulling data from a separate file, no problem there. However, I want the name of one of the folders within that path to change monthly (eg. by monthly name). How can I make a file path incorporate a cell link within a filepath (eg. instead of it saying 'Aug 06' I want it to refer to cell A1 which reads 'Aug 06').

Copy Data From Open File To Current Active Workbook

May 2, 2008

I want to create a standard macro that will copy values from a Master workbook to the current, active workbook I have open. The problem I have run into is when I record a macro it also records the name of the active workbook I'm copying data into and I would like it so when I bring up a workbook I just run the macro and it copies the values in. I'll be doing 8 different macros that each copy different values from the Master spreadsheet

The Workbook Need To Be Open To Move Sheet

Jan 16, 2007

I am working on code to move worksheets to existing workbooks based on the filename in a cell value. Here are my questions...

1.Does the destination workbook need to be opened before I can move a worksheet there?
2. How can I write the code to take the sheet name which is also in column A of "Data" sheet and the path or destination to move the sheet name to the path that is in column B of the "Data" sheet?
3.Can someone help me with the code?

All the worksheet names and copy destination is in the "Data" sheet. Here is what I have for code...
_____________________________________________________
Dim wbBook As Workbook
Dim qsSheet As Worksheet
Dim dsSheet As Worksheet
Dim wsSheet As Worksheet
Dim dpStart As Range, dpData As Range
Dim ptStart As Range, ptData As Range

Set wbBook = ThisWorkbook
Set qsSheet = wbBook.Worksheets("Query")
Set dsSheet = wbBook.Worksheets("Data")
Set wsSheet = wbBook.Worksheets

With dsSheet
Set dpStart = .Range("A2")
Set dpData = .Range(.Range("A2"), .Range("A65536").End(xlUp))
Set ptStart = .Range("B2")
Set ptData = .Range(.Range("B2"), .Range("B65536").End(xlUp))
End With

For Each wsSheet In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
If Not wsSheet.Name = "Data" And Not wsSheet.Name = "Query" Then
wsSheet.Copy

Open Workbook And Move Worksheet Into It

Jan 23, 2008

1. I receive a weekly report 'Over Due Orders_1_14_08.xls' for example. This is sent every Monday and there is a Worksheet on this report called Raw Data.

2. I want to copy Raw Data from that Workbook but the name of the report changes w/ every Monday's date.

Any way of doing this - like just looking for "over due orders" in the Workbook name?

Open Text File From File Manager Vs. Within Workbook

Oct 2, 2006

I've encountered a bit of an odd one. I am opening a tab delimited file, which has been sved as an xls. When I open from file manager, it opens correctly. When I open from Excel, I have to go through 3 screen dictating how the data is set up, and the end result is that a couple of the numbers come through as text, rather than numbers.

Failing an explanation - how do you open workbooks as file system objects - currently I am opening them using

Workbooks.Open Filename:=wb.Path & "/" & ws. Range("B1").Value

If I open them by mimicking the FM, perhaps it will work OK.

Open Workbook Using Name In Cell & Copy Data

Mar 16, 2008

I have a VBA-coded macro in an Excel workbook that is to open another existing workbook -- a .xls file, not .csv -- copy data from it, paste that into the original workbook where the macro resides, then close the source workbook.

If I use the debugger to step through the macro -- putting a breakpoint at its first executable line, run the macro, then F8 step through it, it works fine. (With delays at the open, close statements.) Free running, it doesn't. I suspect it's a timing issue, that the macro runs full tilt even though the new workbook isn't yet open -- but I don't know how to remedy that.

Here is the situation and the simplified code (the actual macro does a lot more, of course):

Main workbook: Two sheets, "Parameters" that has the fully-qualified filename for the desired source .xls in A1; and "Data", into which I want to paste data from that source.

Source workbook: Single sheet, "Sheet1"

Macro code. For simplicity, it is trying to copy/paste all of the source worksheet's content:

Sub Go()
'
' Go Macro
' Test of getting data from another spreadsheet
'
' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+G
'
Dim SourceFile As String
Dim HomeBook As String
Dim OtherBook As String
Sheets("Parameters").Select
SourceFile = Range("A1").Value
HomeBook = ActiveWorkbook.Name

right after the open, hoping that might cause a dwell for the open to complete.

When I step through it, the Locals view has all the parameters, getting set properly. If I try to simply run it, it stalls at the opened source workbook, the Locals view is empty, no data has been transferred into the initiating workbook.

If I place the breakpoint after the open, it is not reached. (I have the VBA open.) Hitting F8 then yields a VB error window, "Compile Error" "Expected: To"

Move/Copy A File Workbook Without Opening

copying within a workbook...

I have an external .xls file I'd like to copy to a new directory from within VBA. I know how to create the directory, but is there a way to do it other than opening the required file, and doing the " saveas" thing?

Can I just create a copy directly?

Open Workbook Within Another File

Nov 12, 2006

I have tried to work this problem out by myself, but I'm afraid it's beyond my ability. Is there a way to open a file from inside excel. Can I open " Master1.xls" from inside " Master 2.xls, (Master 2 is running, Master 1 is not open). I've tried linking but I think that's beyond me as well.

Open Workbook Using File Name In ListBox

Mar 8, 2009

I've created a Form (Userform1) and a Listbox(ListBox1). The listbox is initialized by creating a File System Object so that all XLS files within a folder(Test1) are added to the Listbox. I have a Sub to call the form from a workbook. The files saved in the "Test1" folder appears in the list but I get an error when I select and launch the command to open.

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Dim fso As FileSystemObject
Dim fld As Folder
Set fso = New FileSystemObject
Set fld = fso.GetFolder("c:Documents and SettingsEricDesktopTest1")
For Each Fil In fld.Files
If UCase(Right(Fil. Name, 3)) = "XLS" Then
ListBox1.AddItem Fil.Name
End If
Next
End Sub

Code to open workbook from the listbox

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Workbooks.Open ActiveWorkbook.Path & "" & ListBox1
UserForm1.Hide
End Sub

Check If Workbook Is The Only Excel File Open

Open Workbook Within Zip File & Not Have Read-Only Status

Aug 12, 2009

I understand that vba can determine if the current file is read-only using the following to return true / false. GetAttr(ThisWorkbook.Path) And vbReadOnly

which seems to work fine for determining if the file is read-only, as there is another instance of the file already open. However when opening a file straight from a zipped directory (i.e. not extracting the file first), Excel opens the file as read-only. The above code returns false in this instance, i guess because the workbook path has a .zip ending rather than the normal .xls etc endings. how to return true that the zip file is read-only?

Check Which User Has File/Workbook Open

Jul 28, 2004

I have a program that opens an excel-workbook, I first check whether the file is opened by another user(open for read-write). This works fine, but I'd like to know which user has the file open with VBa code. ex.

workbooks.open ....
if open
then msgbox " Book opened by user"
end if

So it's the same as you open an excel(with your windows explorer) on a network and you get the message that the file is already opened by the user....

Workbooks.Open Not Opening File Or Workbook

Oct 27, 2006

I was wondering if anybody could catch an error in the following code. I have a file, let's call it a "Guide" which is opened by user and at this time this file has only one purpose - to help user choose the program. After clicking on the "Choose Program" command button, an Inputbox appears where the user types in a program. Then the code should open the file with this program and this is pretty much it. But something is not working with the code below, and I do not see anything wrong with it after looking at it for so long. It just does not do antthing. how to handle the "Choosing" option

Private Sub CmdBttn_ChooseProgram_Click()
Dim sFilename As String
On Error Goto ErrorHandler
sFilename = "Approval_" & Application.InputBox("Input Program")
Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:Documents and SettingsjsmithDesktop" & sFilename & ".xls"
ErrorHandler:
'if file name does not exist error message should display. Not defined yet
End Sub

Run Excel Macro From Batch File. Workbook Open

Feb 24, 2009

I wanted to run a batch file which does something like,

Dir /b >Test.csv
Start Test.csv

And then runs an Excel macro once the workbook is open.

I looked into this and discovered that itís not really that possible to run an excel macro through batch file but other options were to use ĎWorkbook_Opení etc.

I thought this might cause problems because Test.csv doesnít contain a macro to auto open and because csvís usually donít like macros.

I do however have personal.xlsb which opens every time if that helps.

Open Chosen File, Copy Range & Paste Into Workbook

May 4, 2008

I'd like to know if it is possible to run a macro in a workbook that will open another workbook (of the users choice) extract data from it, such as columns from its sheets then paste that data into the workbook the macro is running from. The file to be opened will change, so i've found some code that enables the user to select the file to open then open it.

Dim strFile As String
strFile = Application. GetOpenFilename
If strFile <> "False" Then Workbooks.Open strFile

This brings up the standard windows choose file to open box, then opens the selected file. Am I correct in thinking that the Dim here will store the file name I select in the open file box? If so, I'd like to know how to select the workbook using the dim so I can manipulate it from the workbook I'm running the macro in. Incidentally, once the the data has been copied, I'd like the workbook opened with the macro to be closed.

Prompt Open Closed Workbook Then Copy Range And Paste Special Into Open Workbook

Apr 6, 2013

I have created a spreadsheet some time ago and have been asked to improve on it but I'm rusty with VBA.

I have an automated ordering system that saves each sent order as the date e.g "05-04-2013.xls" but the management team want a graph with the data for the last 4 weeks compared. I have created a seperate workbook called "consumables report.xls" which has a column with the products listed followed by columns "Quantity" and "cost" which is repeated for the 4 weeks of the month.

I want to add a button to prompt the user to choose the saved order e.g "05-04-2013.xls" (all orders saved in same directory) to copy and paste the quantity and cost columns (c8,D69) into "consumables report.xls". I got this to work earlier but it would only paste the formulas and not the values. So I need

A prompt to open workbook
Copy range (c8,d69)
Close work sheet
Paste special .value (c8,D69)

I dont care if it has to open the workbook to copy the data as this will only be used once a month so it dosnt matter how slow the code is.

week 1 week 2 week 3 week 4
Product
quantity
cost
quantity
cost
cost
quantity
cost
