I want to ask about the network folder. The current systems that i develop contains about 15 excel workbooks and every workbooks link with each other. If i place all the workbooks into the network folder, does all the formula, link and vba will be changed to network too?
Such as the formula: ='G:systems[workA.xlsm]A1.
Does it will change the path of the formula? or i have to change all the formula, hyperlink and vba manually? second, how should i place the workbooks in network folder in a right way? do i need to change any setting at excel file?
I have read your loop instructions under FAQ entitled; Loop through a folder of workbooks. It works very well on a local drive but I need to have it loop through a folder on a network drive. the drive is mapped as h:\computer name2008shareddocs
Scenario; I have 3rd party software that pulls reports in .csv files. I want to summarise this data into another spread sheet. Ideally I would like to save these files into a folder on the network and my summary workbook simply looks for this folder and is able to find data within all Excel files saved in there (new files will be added on a monthly basis).
Once it has found the folder there will be 2 pieces of data to evaluate; Cell $B$1; this will be the name of a course (e.g. health & safety, money laundering etc.) Column $D; this will contain the score achieved by multiple learners.
The summary spreadsheet then averages all of the scores for the different courses(in seperate cells)
The idea is that the .csv files can be pulled and saved into said folder and eliminates the need to manually input this data into the summary spreadsheet.
The script below scans through a specified folder on a network and scans every xls file inside that folder for a value. When it finds the spreadsheet which contains that value (a policy number) it outputs some of the data from the matching file and also provides a link to the sheet in question.
It worked perfectly until I saved, exited and re-opened the file and now I am getting a 1004 run-time error every time I try and execute the script.
I cant for the life of me work out a cause.
More baffling, the wording of the error says that the file 'R:DirCancellations.xls' could not be found.
At no point is a file called 'Cancellations.xls' specified. Why has the script decided to search for a file called 'Cancellations'?

The situation is that I have created a workbook in a network folder: xprojectsexcelclientAApril umbers
The workbook links to a few other workbooks on the same network, but in the parent folder: xprojectsexcelclientAApril
The problem occurs when my colleagues have to updates the links in the main workbook, because they have not mapped the network drive in the same way as I have. The problem is NOT the prefix, but the fact that they have a more direct link to the network folder. My collages have mapped the folder like: xclientAApril Is there a way where I can make the links in the workbook, so they don't depend on the entire string, but only on the fact that it is in the parent folder?
I have up to 50 workbooks in one folder with data in a specific range. I also have one workbook which includes additional data, including conditional formatting and dropdowns. I need to copy the desired range from the first workbook in the source folder to the second workbook, then save the latter to my destination folder, using the same name as the first. I need to repeat this process for all workbooks in the source folder.
I have created a gradebook and it has several types of workbooks for the student grades. 30% of the grades are calculated in different workbooks. The main gradebook is where the teacher places the mid term, final term grades. In the same workbook the teacher must place the grades for the following areas. (Participation Grade, Following Rules, Homework Grade, and Monthly Test). Now this is my problem!!! In the main grade workbook I need to automatically place the grades from the other workbooks.
Example: ='Participation English P-6'! ( Cells - AN84 for July, AN160 for September, AN274 for January, and AN350 for MArch. I tried to use = COUNTIF(AN84:AN160,AN274,AN350) but it will not work. I can get one grade at a time by using ='Participation English P-6'!AN84 , which will give me the grade in the main workbook that I need. But I don't want to change everytime the grade period comes around. forumal that will give me grades from the other workbooks at the grade time from these cells?
I need a macro in a workbook to look at all the files in the same folder that have "*att*.xls" in the name and determine and copy from the range A15:W515 only the rows that have data in at least columns A, C and D. Each file will vary as to how many rows there will be and there are more than the files with "*att*.xls" in the folder. The data will be on the only worksheet in each file and the worksheet is named "G2WAttendee_xls" the data from all the files need to be copied to the file called "Consolidated webinar reports.xls" (I am using Excel 2003) and to a sheet called "Attendance Data" and added to the end of the last paste.
At the start of the macro the current file "Consolidated webinar report.xls" should be saved to a sub folder of the current directory and have the date saved added to the name. The sub folder is called "Completed reports". The data in the original file on worksheet "Attendance Data" should be deleted.
At the end of the process all the files that have had data copied from them should be moved to the sub folder "Attendance reports consolidated" (This could be done as each file is closed if that is easier).
I have headings in row 1 of the "Attendance Data" worksheet that match the headings in the various files in the folder (which will always be in row 14 of the individual "*att*.xls" files).
The folder with all the files and the "Consolidated webinar report.xls" file is at path "Z:P and S MEvaluationsWebinar series 2012-13TB".
Is there a way to use a for next loop to open a workbook that is in a folder, then save and close the workbook then open the next workbook in the folder and do the same routine till all the workbooks have been updated?
I have a macro that opens all workbooks in a folder and searches for a few terms returning the appropriate rows, my problem is that someone has decided to protect some of the sheets so when the files are opened you get the password box popup. I have added the (filename, readonly) segment however this has not solved the issue, the macro displays an error stating a workbook is open.
Is there any way to resolve this without unprotecting the sheets?
I have a series of workbooks created by my salesforce (from a master template that I created for them) which they then place into a folder for me to extract data and upload that data to SAP. I am writing a procedure, therefore, to do just that.
Essentially, I would like to open the file containing the data, extract what I need and then close it. I can do that. THEN, I want to move each data file to a folder (which would depend upon the data within the file) as part of the whole procedure. I can define the new path, but I don't know how to move the book.
In creating the master template of the data files, I built into it an auto-name-creation procedure which defines the name of the file that they create. This enables me to write a procedure to work out the file to open. In order to do this, I disabled the save function (but password protected it so that I could make changes to the master template). As such, I am unable to use Save/Save As to move the data files.
I have a large number of files (100+) contained in a directory with multiple subfolders that need to be made read-only at the end of an excel macro. Because of said length, I believe (open to correction) that the SetAttr method would not work (as I do not know the individual file names). It is also necessary to preserve all of the original files' other attributes.
Sharing excel file over network for use by multiple persons. File has suddenly stopped opening giving message "File cannot be found" etc.... I back the file up daily to my hard drive so didn't lose much.
This is the second time this has happened. File size is only 300Kb.
Excel seems to be creating temp files to the same folder, then gave a message saying changes could not be saved to the excel file.
Ran the corruption program from this site, it could not open the file.
I have a whole group of workbooks. Is there a way to make a new workbook that will look in the folder containing all of the other customer's books and pull information from them? In other words, I want a workbook where in Column A would contain all of the Customer's Names (Cell Info!G6), Column B would contain the Insurance Company (Cell Info!M14), etc. Is there a way to to that?
I have several workbooks in a folder with sub folders. How can I get the values located in C6, E6 and E9 and put in a new workbook the "file name" in Ai and those 3 values in Bi, Ci and Di respectively? Itīd be desirable get the values without open the files.
1. I have a large number of Test Suites that are large documents with 1 (visible) sheet w/ test cases, and 1 (hidden) sheet w/ validations. Test Suite is saved with a unique name (that follows a naming convention we've set up on this project: <Project>_<Test Suite Category>_<Location in Software>_< date>.xls
2. I need to create a master document in which i can run a macro that will copy each "test suite" sheet from each of these documents, insert it into the master doc, and sort the sheets by name. then it needs to present the data from all of the sheets on the main page of the doc, and break down the results by Test Suite Category, and Location.
Is this possible?
Can I create a macro that will import sheets from (potentially) hundreds of different workbooks, and then sort them appropriately?
I've been looking all over the place, and while i've seen macros that can import specific data, rows, or columns, i havn't quite seen what i'm looking for.
