Possible To Use VLookup Function To Open Specific File
Oct 11, 2012
I am naming raw data files by the date of the data in the file. In another file I am using sumif and sumifs formulas to consolidate the data and organizing it by date, later to copy and paste special to keep the cleaned orgaized data in one spreadsheet. I would like to be able to reference a date and have excel open the appropriate file (named by the date) and then execute the sumif and sumifs formulas. If this is possible I can have the spreadsheet pull in all sorts of historical data all at once and I won't have to worry about copy paste special.
I have to run a report each morning and in once cell I need to pull in the contents of another cell from another worksheet. I'd rather not have to open the additional file each morning to copy and paste special the values so I'd like to add to my current macro to pull this data in automatically. I have to do this for two different reports/portfolios and the data I am pulling in for each portfolio is located in the same exel file but under two different tab names, the portfolio names 2010 and 2045.
Deliverables The spreadsheet I am pulling data in from is located here: K:Risk OversightMarket RiskTracking ErrorBARRA and the file name is: Daily Barra Tracking Error.xls
Tab name would be 2010 for the 2010 portfolio or 2045 for the 2045 portfolio The vlookup will be from "A32:B2500" and I would like to incorpoprate an IFERROR function that returns "" in the event of an error. Column "A" are dates and column "B" is the data I need to pull in.
Receivables I am pulling the data into cell "J23" of a summary report (sheet 2) and would like the vlookup to read something like this:
IFERROR(VLOOKUP("K1"Active.Workbook.Sheets2,[K:Risk OversightMarket RiskTracking ErrorBARRA"&"Daily Barra Tracking Error.xls"(Sheets)]."2010""A32:B2500",2,0),"")
This should return a blank cell if the date cannot be found in the data spreadsheet and return the correct data for teh correct date being referenced in my summary sheet.
how to do the bracketed parts for pulling in the right spreadsheet and tab.
I am trying to open a website, then for excel to download the csv file, then for it to save it in a specific folder under a specific name and file format (excel).
I am successful at opening the website with the following code, but how to do the rest.

I've got a VBA macro set up in one Master excel file that manipulates a number of other files. Both the Master and the other files are all in a folder which is currently called C:Documents and SettingsusernameDesktopPipeline and my VBA script has this defined as the filepath and works exactly as I need it to. I will be moving the folder "Pipeline" to a shared drive on my server so my staff can access it, and will be sending it to colleagues who will be installing it on their own servers so they and their staff can use it. Is there a way to amend the code so that the VBA in the Master file looks in the folder in which it is locate, "Pipeline", no matter what the filepath leading to the "Pipeline" folder is?
I am using this code to get me to a path then I click on the file I want and it opens it and makes it a .csv file. Then my code does stuff with it and closes it. My question is, do I even have to click on it? Can I get the macro to automatically open the file. Note the "NewestFolderInThePath" is a function that open me up to the "newest" created folder in the path. From there I double click file.
TheFile = Application.GetOpenFilename("Excel Files (*.*), *.*", , "Open Balance Sheet File FRPMBSDTL") If TheFile = "False" Then continue = MsgBox("Do you want to Continue to IS Download?", _................
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.
I am trying to write a macro to open a specific file, but need to search multiple folders within folders to find it.
The file name I need to open is "Escalation Adherence-Details " & Format(Date, "mm-dd-yy") & ".xlsx".
I need to drill down to the Adherence Report folder and then have the macro search through folders for each year (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, etc) and then each month within each year (1 January, 2 February, 3 March, etc), at which point I would then find that day's file.
So far I have the following:
Code: Sub Open_ESCL_Report()
Workbooks.Open Filename:=*****.****.****.******.comsharesPurchasingTeam XEscalationAdherence Report & "Escalation Adherence-Details " & Format(Date, "mm-dd-yy") & ".xlsx" End Sub
Each file is stored in it's respective month folder as .....Adherence Report(Year)(Month)(File).xlsx
I will receive one master file which contains the table and it's values and I have another working sheet where I will update the require details. Every time I will copy the entire master data into working file in order to extract the values by using vlookup function. note that the master file has different names each time. So, that if I use vlookup by taking master data path but not getting the results.
I am looking one macro code to select file (master data) and paste the values based on vlooup references in workings sheets. Note this master data file name may change but reference range always same.
I have a vlookup function which takes the data from a table in a closed file. A folder where the file would be located will change based on the value in the cell reference.
I used below formula which works, but every time when i drag or try to edit and enter, the path of the file path brokes and i need to reselect the path where the file is located. Is there a way where i can stop this?
I want to create a macro that will “open the look in list” and stop so I can pick a file to open. I’ve tried to use “record a macro” and “ctrl-o”, but the record a macro won’t stop until I pick a file or cancel the file list. I also tried to use “o” in the short cut key box
I have two workbooks. One is a no-nonsense form interface that my bosses will use to enter safety information. I'll call this workbook "Form". This file is stored locally on each of their computers. The other workbook is stored on a common drive. I'll call it "Master".
When my bosses fill out the Form and click "Submit", the Master file is opened, and certain cells are populated based on information entered in the Form. This is the code I am using to make this happen:
Dim myname As String myname = Application. GetOpenFilename
I use it to attempt to open first a QuickBooks file and then an excel workbook. The Quickbooks file opens fine. The Excel workbook never appears to open but I do get the full file pathname to my excel workbook returned which I then parse off to get just the workbook name.
Why would it behave this way? I open both these files manually all the time.
Also, I'm trying to use a filter as follows:
myname = Application.GetOpenFilename("*.QBW")
I get a compile error saying that I'm calling the function wrong.
Actually i've downloaded Tracking report of my SPO and this report is on 4-5 csv files (1 file per week). I have to gather data from these 4 files into one Worksheet. I have to do this with command button on my worksheet; with Open file dialogue box (i want to locate the csv files).
CSV files are something like that (I need only first 4 columns):
and my Worksheet is like that (With a command Button):
I want to import first 3 columns of csv file on first 3 columns on my worksheet; leave 2 columns blank and then import the 4th column... now for example i have done importing data from 1st csv file and the data is on 50 rows.. i click the command button again, locate the 2nd csv file.. do the same thing (import 1st 3 columns, 2 blank, then 4th) --from 51st Row-- and so on...
I have a worksheet that contains two basic columns of data, A and B. What I would like to do is based on the value in column A, I would like to copy the contents of column B to a textfile (preserving the basic line structure and hopefully without any extra characters like quotation marks attached). So for all the values in column A = 'Account', Id like to take all the corresponding values in Column E (for example) and save them to the same file, preferably where the filename itself as 'Account.xyz'. And I would like to do this for all unique values in Column A, that is do it for 'Account' and 'AccountPrivilege' etc. Note Column A is essentially presorted alphabetically already. There are actually 1000s of rows with hundreds of unique A values so Id like to find a way to automate this process.
I do routine tasks every day which involves opening 3 different files and pasting data into my main file. The data is always in the same format, and the 3 files are saved in the same location (3 different folders through). The 3 files are saved each day and the naming convention is constant, with only the date changing. For example, the files are always saved in C:My Documents and the files are called test_05.02.2013.xls. Tomorrow the file will be called test_06.02.2013.xls and so on.
So each day I will be rolling a file forward and I want to bring in the info from each of these files based on the new day.
How to do 1, and I will do the others (because the concept will be the same).
I need to open an excel file based on a date mentioned in the file name, but minus 1 day. The file name is composed with Statistics_date_time.xls
Once I need to open the file (only in the mornings), it has to be the one from the previous day to see the yesterdays performance. How can I create a macro that will look at the date in the file and take the one from yesterday?
This will be a part of a macro I'm making. The rest of the macro will just format the file and combine a few ones from different departments.
I've got a couple of formulas in a workbook which lookup values in another workbook. When I reopen the initial workbook the formulas results come back as errors (i.e. #VALUE!) unless the workbook it is looking at is also open. This is not desirable, does anyway know how I can lookup values in another workbook which are not open? The formula which is causing me problems is as follows:
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
When it opens the desired file, it increments the file name by 1 each time it is opened (via the macro).
Example; The first time it is opened you see the file name in the header read "P'Binder L&T Pages" for a moment, then it changes to "P'Binder L&T Pages1"... I close the file and open it again (via the macro), and see the file name in the header read "P'Binder L&T Pages" for a moment, then it changes to "P'Binder L&T Pages2"... The file name continues to increment on every opening until the PC is rebooted, then it starts at 1 again.
