Open/Update Linked Files, Convert To Values & Save To New Folder
May 21, 2008
I have a number of spreadsheets in a folder called country (each sheet is the name of a region). These sheets are linked to another sheet called master which is in another folder.
The regional sheets all have a list of wrap codes and pull details specific to each code from the master sheet. All wrap codes for all sheets are stored in the master, details for wrpas are manually entered here as well as any other associated information.
The link is kept by way of an index match formula used to populate information from the master for all wrap codes in the regional sheet.
Each of the regional sheets act as a report for a specific region and the master is the main source. Every week we need to open the regional sheets (some reside in different folders/subfolders) update the index match formulas in the sheet so that the data is refreshed and then save as a new file with data as values to another folder for reporting.
I am looking for a code that can automatically update all of the excel sheets in a given folder and then save them to a new folder automatically.
I have very very limited knowledge of VB (did make a hello world dialog box once) and am stuck as to any way to automate this process.
There is a folder with all excel files with the same structure. I need a macro, who opens one file by one in a folder, change the layout, and save it too same place with same name. Changing the layout will I do with macro record.
Sub AllFiles() Dim MyFolder As String 'Path containing the files for looping Dim MyFile As String 'Filename obtained by Dir function Dim MyBook As Workbook MyFolder = "D:LABODIESTSOST_DIEST" 'Assign directory to MyFolder variable
I have some daily text files in a folder (so about 30 of them each month), which in the end of month, I need to open them up in excel, format them so that I can use the information for my analysis.
I would like to create a macro, to quickly open them all up at once and save them each individually in .xls or .xlsm format.
I am new to VBA and after some research online, I was able to have the files open with the following code. but now I don't know how to proceed further to save them one by one with the same name but in .xls or .xlsm format.
Sub Opentxtfiles() Dim MyFolder As String Dim myfile As String
I want to allow users to place files (.jpg, .tif, .pdf, .pps etc) into a network folder and then have my program open each file and display it for 30 seconds then close the file and the application before opening the next file.
1. Set up a loop to get a directory listing of the folder and write the listing to a text file.
2. Open up the text file and get the next filename in it
3. Open the file in the associated application
4. Wait for 30 seconds (or some period of time) and then close the file
5. Repeat steps 2-4
DoIt = 1 While DoIt = 1 Open "C:TempList.txt" for output as #1 Print #1, Files In Folder Close #1
Open "C:TempList.txt" for input as #2 while not eof(2) Line input #2, MyFile Display MyFile on screen Wait for 30 seconds Close MyFile and MyApplication that opened it wend Close #2
I can get the directory listing just fine with no problems
I can open the files in the associated application just fine with no problems.
with closing the application after 30 seconds or some period of time.
I need some code that will allow me to easily send it a filename and it will know how to close the file and the application that opened it.
I have an Excel application (Excel 2003) which is stored in the default Program Files folder by the Installer; for example: c:program fileszxchello.xls. The problem I am running into is this file opens as Read Only in Vista and this is interfering with the running of the application. There is no problem opening the file normally in Windows XP.
I have been able to narrow down the cause of this to the User Account Control system in Vista - if I turn OFF User Account Control, the Excel file opens normally and my application functions normally. Is there another option to open the Excel file without turning OFF User Account Control because some users may find it unacceptable to turn OFF this security feature. Ofcourse, one option is to install the application in another location, outside the Program Folder, and the file would open normally, but the Packaging Wizard that I am using to package the application does not allow me to install the application in any other location and thus, the application installs in the Program Folder and I am running into this problem of the Exel file opening as Read Only. Is there a way out of this situation where I can open the file normally (not as Read Only)?
I is it possible to convert all comma separated text files in a single folder in to excel files. But the requirement is to have 2 sheets in each new file. first to be the full file - with all columns, and in the second sheet to keep only colum A B D G H K L M O P R S T V W from the first sheet. The second sheet name must be the same as the first one but without the first "wlist_" in the name.
One more thing. The third column in the second is called "COUL". there are short letters for colors in french
can they be converted with the sort in English like it goes:
NO = B BA = W RG = R SO = P JA = Y BE = L VE = GY GR = G VI = V MA = BR BJ = TA OR = O
Here is a link to the both CSV and an example excel file with the end result. In this example i haven`t change the shorts for the colors. It takes me too much time with the find and replace function. And at the moment i`m really pushed from time.
The main file was linked to other files. Instead of using the "edit links" dialogue box provided by Excel, I wish to use a list box. This list box will show all the files that the main file is linked to.
The user will have the the option to single select or multiple select the files. Upon clicking "ok" it will "open and close" the selected files, thus updating the main file. (it should also remove the update links dialogue box of the source files if they had it, it will be a hassle for the user to click on the "don't update" for every linked file that is open)
I know the update links in Excel is able to do it but the links sometimes will result in errors, beside it doesn't offer multiple selections.
I have created a Spreadsheet that does all of the calculations, analysis, graphs, etc. that i need; however every time I wish to use this spreadsheet I need to first open up a spreadsheet with data, copy it and then paste it into the original spreadsheet. While this is not horrible, it is quite tedious to do several thousand times.
Thus, I was wondering if it were possible to create a Macro that would open up all files in a specific folder, then select each one and paste the relevant data into my original spreadsheet. I know this possible for specific files; for example, I have created a Macro that will select files data.xls, dats1.xls, data2.xls, and paste these into the spreadsheet, but I was wondering if there was a way to generalize this so that it will simply open every file regardless of the name or how many files there are in the specific folder.
Using the developer tab I inserted an Active X combo box. Under properties I referenced a 'linked cell' that I want the data to appear in. This box works great as long as I keep the sheet open. Once I save and close the workbook and re-open, that reference is lost. It shows #REF! in that field. Why does it lose the reference? I have tried to reference a cell on the same sheet as well as a cell in a different sheet and it keeps the sheet name but not the individual cell.
Using the record macro function I have created the code below which creates a row of means for 77 columns in the active worksheet, and also adds the value from cell CO2 to cell CO5. I would like to expand this code so it copies the row of means (always row 5) into the next blank row in the workbook C:/ Analysis/results.xls.
Sub Macro7() Range("A6").Select ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _ "=((R[-4]C*R2C92)+(R[-3]C*R3C92)+(R[-2]C*R4C92)+(R[-1]C*R5C92))/(R2C92+R3C92+R4C92+R5C92)" Range("A6").Select Selection.Copy Range("B6:CM6").Select ActiveSheet.Paste ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 2 ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 3 ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 4 ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 5 'etc. up to ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn = 77 Range("CO6").Select Application.CutCopyMode = False ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=R[-4]C" Range("CO7").Select End Sub
I have 102 dbf tables located in the folder C:/Analysis that I would like to perform these operations on. Can this code be expanded so it will run automatically on every table in the folder?
I am trying to append 365 text files into a single Excel sheet. The files have unique names corresponding to the day of data that they represent (i.e. 0101.txt, 0102.txt, 0103.txt etc.) I am looking for some code that will loop through a folder, open each file, copy all data, and append it without the headers into the single Excel sheet. Does anyone have some VBA code that would do this?
I don't seem to be able to combine the looping through a set of workbooks with the IsFileOpen function posted by microsoft.
Basically this code works if the foundfile(j) is closed, but if it is already open I cannot activate the foundfile(j) and make it do things.
I'm not posting the ISFileOpen function because already present inside the forum and the rest of the code because it's too long...
With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch ' . ScreenUpdating = False .LookIn = MyPath(40) '* represents wildcard characters .FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks If .Execute > 0 Then 'Workbook exists For j = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count If IsFileOpen((.FoundFiles(j))) Then 'neither of these three options work
I have excel files in a folder, I need a macro to loop through all files, rename them and save them in another folder. the file's name is available in a cell in each file, I am able to get the file name as text (I had to dig a little to get the text as it was between ""). Well I am stuck right now because the macro is doing what it's supposed to do for one excel file only and does not continue with the rest of the available files for a reason.
VB: Sub RenameAllFiles() Dim Bk As Variant Dim n As Integer Dim NewName As String
I have around 30 files each quarter which I need to convert from a text file to an excel spreadsheet. I am a beginner with VBA and am looking for generic code I can use for a macro to:
1. open a text file from a folder 2. delimited/tab/comma 3. format columns H, O, and AH into dates 4. 'leave a spot for me to insert my code to manipulate the data' 5. save the file as an excel spreadsheet to a folder with the same filename 6. loop to perform this task to all files in a folder and stop after the last file.
The dilemna I am having is that my text files do not have a suffix ".txt" after them.
They just have the file name ***MMDDYYYY. There are always 3 initials at the beginning which change for each file i.e. ABC06302009.
The date remains the same for the given quarter, i.e. ***06302009. Next quarter I will have to do this same thing for all files ***09302009.
I’m wondering if this is possible, if I have a folder with say 30 excel spreadsheets (.xls) all named differently (number of files will always change), can I easily write something in VBA to Open all the spreadsheets and copy each sheet over to an existing Excel spreadsheet? For example, have a ‘template’ spreadsheet where the VBA would exist, then have the first sheet, (Sheet1) of each 30 sheets be copied back over to the template.xls? Even better, could I rename each Sheet1 to the name of the file before copying it over? This would basically be the first step in my process of getting the spreadsheet made.
I found this code in a similar question, so how can I rename the Sheet to the opened file name, then copy that over to template.xls?
I have this existing macro which saves each tab into a separate excel file. However, I'd like for it to also save them together in a new folder using the current month and date (named: QA Files May_05.06.14). The month and date would change according to current month/date. How would I incorporate that into this code? I am not good with macros.
Sub tabname() Dim ws As Worksheet For Each ws In Worksheets ws.Activate ws.Name = Range("D1").Value Next
I have windows 7 and excel 2010 and am using a macro that opens up a csv file(I think) of daily reports into Excel and then automatically delineates it and formats it how I want it. I will be using this to save a new file every day for the reports from the previous day and want to include at the end of that macro a way to prompt the user to "save as" so that each day they can run the macro and enter in the date and save that report for further use. I am wondering what VBA code I could use at the end of the macro code to prompt the Save As box and if I could already have the save us set up in the following folder... "W:Daily to Fortis Excel2014(the user will put in the date here)".
I've been looking around sites and trying to figure it out. I need the file format to be the same as when you save as "Excel Workbook". I was trying to use the Saveas (filename) function and could get it to save every time as a specific file name in that location but when I run it the next day it has the same name and saves over itself. So I need the user to be able to put in todays date as the filename to create a new one every day.
The are two types of workbooks in C:Parts & SVC Sales "Parts Sales" and "service Sales" . The branch name is at the beginning of the file name
Instead of opening up each file individually in C:Parts & SVC Sales and selecting the appropriate csv file in C:/extract using the Update_Macro, I would like the macro to open up all the files in the directory C:Parts & SVC Sales and update each of these with the appropriate csv file in C:extract
The name and description type must match the csv files and then updated eg Br1 Parts Sales to be updated with csv file Br1 Salesperson 01-07-2014 (the date in the file is not important for match the parts file -the branch name for eg BR1 and "salesperson is) i.e Br1 Parts Sales must select BR1 Salesperson 01-07-2014
BR1 Service Sales Must be updated with Br1 Service order repair register.csv (branch name for eg Br1 in this instance name and Service order repair register (pertain to Service Sales) is important)
Br2 Parts Sales to be updated with Br2 Salesperson Br2 Service Sales must be updated with Br2 Service order repair register etc
I have a requirement to search workbooks in a particular folder with specific string in file name. For example, let us assume I need to find a file which contains the name 'RR' in it. The position of 'RR' will vary with files i.e. 'RR' might be present either in the beginning, middle or at the end of file name. All I wanted is to search for file with 'RR' and do some activity and close the file and then goto next file. Similarly, the next search has to be performed with the files containing the name 'BB' in it.
