i'd like to be able to import a list of file names from a folder. sounds fairly straight forward to me, but example:
folder a has 10 files in it (let's say PDFs - numbered 1 through 10). I'd like to be able to open the spread sheet, and see the file names in column b. ideally, i'd also like subfolders to be listed, in the next column. but, let's start with just this.
The code below looks at file names in column A and then goes to a folder and opens and copies the data in range c2 -lastrow from each file and pastes the data into sheet2.
how I could add to the code so that it also inserts the file name in column c?
It would make it easier to track the data in column B.
VB: Sub CopyFromFile() Dim fPath As String Dim lRow As Long
I have attached a sample workbook. The list of file name is in sheet 1. An example of the output is in sheet 2. The data in column A is dummy data generally spans 100's of rows not just 10 as in the example.
The purpose of the code is to be able to put a list of file names in column a in sheet 1 and extract data from those files in a folder. The data extraction works fine. The reson for adding the file names is so that I know what file the data came from.
I am creating a proposal for a online sales store, i have in column A a list of item names that my buyer liked and wants to run, but i have to send them the pictures for the items which is located in a directory on my drive together with all other items. we have 4 category's of pictures 1 is the main image from this we only have 1 of each item, then we have the S category there we may have up to 3 images s1, s2 and s3 not more then 3 and the same is with the R category and with the M as well. We did created a VBA to copy all images from the list into a new directory with all sub pictures into a new sub dir. and bring back a list of all images not found. But i am having a problem when i run the code if it dosnt find the image looking for (for instanse EAR11-M1 the code stopes there looking for the file even the error checking in the code is set to resume what is wrong with code?
I have an master excel file with 20 sheets with names x,y,z,a,b,c,f,.... Each and every sheet has data which start from Row 7 and Column 2. Now i need to consolidate this data in one sheet in another excel file.
Consolidation should be like
Suppose X sheet has 20 rows and 4 columns of data which starts from Row 7 and Column 2, this data has to be copied and pasted in my new excel file copied on my desktop. Now first 20 rows are occupied in new excel file.
Now code should move on to master excel file Sheet Y which has 45 rows and 4 columns of data which starts from Row 7 and Column 2,this data has to be copied and pasted in my new excel file from row 21, which means Master excel file sheets has to be clubbed to one consolidated excel file.
In All the sheets in Master file Data starts from Row 7 and column 2.
Data range varies row wise in each sheet but column length is fixed to 4.
1) I'm relatively new to arrays, but what I need to do is generate a list of file names and the sheets within each one. I would like to use an array for this, but since I don't have much experience.... well....that's why I'm here. Can someone point me in the right direction?
2) And the second part of this.... I was planning on using the FileSystemObject to determine the files in a selected folder and loop through that list of files, opening each one and harvesting the required info (file name and all sheet names). Should I use the FSO or is there something built into Excel that might be better (and also limit the number of dependencies for this little "project" of mine).
I have 1000 workbooks in a folder, each workbooks format is same. as of now I open each workbook, and check if values in A10 is equal to B10, that is if the value in A10 is "100" I will check if B10 is also "100" if not I will make a note the file name.
I have more than 1000 workbooks in a folder, It is really difficult to open and check if the values are same. is there a macro, which will check the condition A10 = B10, if not get the file name in one sheet.
When opening the attached file, for some reason, I have to again select the cells from column A in tab "Transactions" and go to Data Validation and select again LIST - only then the data validation from list resumes working. When I close the file after saving and open it again, the data validation does not work - I have to again go to Data Validation and again reselect LIST (making sure, of course, that I do not mess up Source) to have Data Validation list run again.

I'm using Excel 2007. I didn't change a single option but for some reason this problem came up. When I open an already saved Excel file it opens up in a newly created file. For example, if I open a file saved as "Monthly Sales" it will open it up and rename it as "Monthly Sales1." When I go to save it again, which would normally just save it where it currently sits, it basically acts as if I hit Save As and pops up the box asking me where I want to save it. This is extremely annoying as most of the places where these files are saved are several folders deep which makes it time consuming every time I open and alter a file. I can't find any options that looks something like this and it only happens in Excel.
I have a file that I save with a new version number each time I make major changes. The file name currently is: "Telephony Equipment Inventory v26 (Summary).xlsm". The "26" is the variable number. give me the vba code to ensure I open the file with the highest version number?
I have a file that is on a server. When I open it on my excel it opens an old version of it and not the newest copy. If I open it on a coworkers computer, it does open the correct newer version. How do I change this?
I have an excel add-in which is a ribbon which houses a great deal of financial tools that I use on a regular basis so I don't have to hunt around excel for things I use regularly. The add-in has always loaded automatically whenever I opened excel - whether I opened excel by creating a new blank document or by double clicking a previously existing file.
Starting a few days ago though, the add-in only opens when opening excel by creating a new blank file. I can't think of anything that changed recently. Using Excel 2007.
Even when opening a file by double clicking, Excel still says the add-in is active (in excel options).
is it possible to change the settings on your computer so that when you open Excel, it opens it as a certain type of file? I like working with .xlsb because I work with large sets of data all of the time and find that they open faster and are faster to work with. Currently every time I open Excel, it opens as .xlsx.
I have a Macro which will list file names in column A, but it does not include the sub folders. Edit this macro to include sub folders as well. I also want to display the file path in the column C for ech document displayed in the column A
HTML Sub ListFiles() Dim objFSO As FileSystemObject Dim objFol As Folder Dim objFiles As Files Dim objFile As File Range("A2:A300").Clear Set objFSO = New Scripting.FileSystemObject Set objFol = objFSO.GetFolder("c: est") Set objFiles = objFol.Files Range("A2").Select For Each objFile In objFiles ActiveCell = objFile.Name ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select DoEvents..................................
I was wondering if there is any code using an on-click method. When clicking a button i need excel to exit the file/sheet without saving (no prompts) and then re-open the exact same file/sheet once it has closed.
I am trying to open an Excel file that was emailed to me in zipped file that requires macros. When it asks me if I want to enable macros it gives me an error and will not open. Is there a setting I need to change?
How to pull data with a VLOOKUP to a file located on a Server.
My big problem is not understanding the syntax of the Server location. I've provided it below (obviously with some character changes).
I have a file located on my Hard Drive. I need to perform a VLOOKUP from A2 on this spreadsheet. The File on the Server is called "LookupTest.xls". The Range of Data is from Sheet 1 and is from A2:C4 and I need to pull the data from column C depending on what is selected from A2 from the file on my HD. I understand how to use VLOOKUP, just not when I'm pointing to another file on a Server.
Server mapping from Windows Explorer:
rbbabc$ on 'RP17409 - ABC Database (AHSSRVVN678.tge.com)'
Again, that server mapping is fake, as I changed it, but this is how it looks on Windows Explorer.
I'm trying to keep a master file of Data on a spreadsheet found on a server so that one master file can be updated, and several other tools pull from that Master File on VLOOKUP, Validation Lists, etc.
Any code that will grab the names of all files from all directories on an FTP server? I have the path & credentials to get to them, but I need a process to drop their names into a spreadsheet to compare against a list of files loaded onto a SQL database.
The directory structure on the server is subject to change, as are the number of files in each repository.
I need to combine AHK and Excel, and in this I came up with the solution to save my parameters in a file, and let the workbook autoload it when I open the workbook. To do this I need to pass a command line parameter, or working directory to the workbook, as I will be using many different work directories for this to make sense.
This is only a matter of how to execute my workbook so that the path is included (and usable) to the working directory
I have tried
..workbook-name.xlsm /p "workdir"
But it results in a "grey" version of Excel aka. Excel is open, but no workbooks are.
I have also tried
excel.exe workbook-name.xlsm /p "workdir"
But this did not work either, and is not an option as we use both 2007 and 2010 at my workplace where this is intended to be used.
I can do it very easily by using absolute paths in the Excel auto-load, but as I have explained already this is just not an option.
There are multiple tabs in my workbook ("Template", "Database", and "Summary"). I would like to add a "Save to file" button on the "Template" sheet and it will dump a copy of this sheet only using the data on cell C4 and C7 as filename, not the entire workbook.
