Pull In Range From Closed File

Feb 14, 2008

I'm trying to find a way to import data from an external excel file that the end-user will ultimately end up choosing using the application. getopenfilename dialogue. I'm able to sucessfully open the file, but what I'm really trying to do is import data from one specific column within the file, preferably without the source spreadsheet popping up.

So, is this possible to do with VBA? Also, will I run into any issues if I try to import from an Excel 2.1 file to an Excel 2003 file using VBA? Finally, I need to be able to import one file, and then be able to add to that an import from another file. I'm thinking that this could be accomplished using a variant variable, but is there already a function within Excel so that I won't have to create my own add-to function.

Pull Data Out Of A Closed File Based On A Date Range

Jun 15, 2006

I am trying to make Excel pull data out of a closed file based on a date range. The closed file is a log where people input data and enter the day they are doing it. I need to pull this data in my file and make it print into my worksheets so I can pass a report on to others with only the data they request from the log.

The range would be for 7 days and would have to be able to choose a few columns off this report.

Macro To Pull Same Cell Range Cell From Many Closed Books

Feb 26, 2009

I have many workbooks which all have a summary sheet called summary, and which are all kept in the same folder (although this folder name/filepath may change from year to year).

I want to be able to set up the column headings and then copy the same set of summary information from each book so that it can then be used for analysis. The cells to be copies derive their value from formulae, it is the value that needs to be copied.

I attach a workbook with the format needed and the source cells. The source sheet will be password protected.

I know this is a question that has been raised before and I have searched the forum but not come across a question that is close enough to work from - my VB skills are appalling.

Pull From Closed Workbook

Feb 10, 2008

I have a folder that contains hundreds of excel workbooks. Each workbook has 20 or more sheets. All workbooks have the same look and design. All workbooks have macros that they use to function and the macro I want cannot interfere with their macros.

What I want to do is copy certain cell values (some numeric and some text) from several sheets from these workbooks and paste them into another workbook (a master workbook) that is essentially collecting these values into a table without having to open all these workbooks. For example, let’s say all of the workbooks are named with a numeric value starting with “one.xls” and that the sheets in these workbooks are named “a”, “b”, and so on. So, in the master workbook in cell “B2”, I want the name of the first workbook searched (“one.xls”); then in cell “C2”, I want the value from cell “J45” on sheet “b” of “one.xls”; in cell “D2”, the value from cell “B32” on sheet “b” of “one.xls”; in cell “E2”, the value from cell “K13” on sheet “e” of “one.xls”; in cell “F2”, the value from cell “R43” on sheet “k” of “one.xls”. The in cell “B3” of the master workbook, I want the same information as before except from “two.xls” instead of “one.xls”, and so on down to “three hundred.xls”.

Pull Data From Closed Workbooks

Aug 1, 2007

How do I update changes to a linked workbook without having to open it? Let's say that I have two workbooks, "workbook1" and "workbook2". I want to copy data entered from workbook1 to workbook2 without opening workbook2. I know that I can just open workbook2 so that the formula will work but if I do that I'll end up opening up to 3 workbooks, which doesn't really give you much security.

VBA Macro To Pull Data From 3 Closed Workbooks And Filter

Dec 13, 2013

What I want to do is pull data from columns A,B,C,D in 3 other closed workbooks (export.csv, export1.csv, & export2.csv) to my main workbook (Thunder.xlsm)and append that data in columns A-D on my main workbook. In addition I created a list of 10 names (but need to expand or delete from this list as personnel change) in Column O that I would like to filter the data in A-D. The names in the list must find the data I want to keep in column D, the rest I want to delete (not the entire row, just A-D for that particular row that does not match the criteria in column O, and shift those cells up).

I've attached a sample spreadsheet that will clarify what I am asking. I'm preferably asking for 2 macro's, one for the pull of data, and the other for the filtering.

Column A
Column B
Column C
Column D

Pull Data From Closed Workbook Based On Cell Values

Apr 28, 2008

I want to pull data from closed workbook based on cell values of open workbook of column B and the source file name is on cell J1. Actually I save monthly files and opening balnce of current month should take vakues from previous month file.

Suppose current month is May 2008. Then Column Column D for May month shold take value from column G of April 2008. For simplicity the previous month’s name and thus source file name will be placed on cell J1.

The code should loop from column B of source file and current May 2008 file and should pull values for only those items which are in the current file in the Column B. Thus those products which are deleted or newly added item in the current item should not copied. Though for new item no name will be thre in the source file but for deleted items the item might be there in the source file but the code should ignore those value.

BeforeClose Event Not Running / Working When File Is Closed Through VBA In Another File

Jun 26, 2014

I have a code in file A that opens several files (B,C,D&E), copies some data from them, then closes the files. That part of the code works fine, but each of the files that are opened (B,C,D,&E) have a Workbook Open event that causes the file to save automatically every 30 seconds. (I know this is not recommended, but this is what the user wants.) The files also have a Workbook Before Close event that is supposed to stop the timer so the file will close without reopening. These each run fine on their own.But if I run code A, the workbook Before Close event in file B (C,D, & E) does not seem to run and the files reopen after 30 seconds to save. When I step through the code it works fine and goes through the Before Close event in each file and the files remain closed.

Pull Value From Closed Workbook Where Workbook Name Is In A Cell

Nov 24, 2007

I want to open an excel file whose name is a value in a spreadsheet, and then pull a value from the spreadsheet I queried into my existing workbook. Here is the syntax i have so far:

to note: I'm calling the workbook in which the macro is located testproject.xls, and I'm using [integer].xls as my list of files that the macro will query. Ultimately, this code will go in a loop.

Set currentCell = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1")
varCellvalue = currentCell.value
Workbooks.Open "path_of_file" & varCellvalue & ".xls"
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=[3.xls]Sheet1!R1C1"

The problem is, I want [3.xls] to carry the sale value as varCellvalue with .xls appended, and not be kept static at 3. I tried inserting & varCellvalue & ".xls" into the brackets, but with no luck. My only difficulty is getting [3.xls] to vary along with varCellvalue.

Sumif For Values From Closed File

Apr 13, 2009

I am trying to summarise data from 50 different files (updated by 50 different users) into one file in one place. To do this I created a simple sumif function that links to those files. This sumif works correctly when those files are open. But when I open my output file after changes have been made to one or more of 50 input files, sumif function doesn't work when I hit update at the file opening pop up question and get #value error. If I start opening those files this error goes away and it works great again.

Run Macro In Closed File At Same Time Each Day

Oct 17, 2007

i know there is information on this ontime method, i haev read through it, but since i am working with reuters running live in the background they just dont work.
Anyway, on a normal excel sheet, I have made the automated macros run on a timer, which is great. BUT If someone switches off my pc, its not going to be so great because i dont think the macro would run without excel being open.

How can i make my macro run every morning at 8am? Assuming the worksheet is closed, even excel is closed. i am sure the answer is starring me in the face, i am just getting boerd of looking at it! in the Thisworkbook:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
Application.OnTime dTime, "thismodule", , False
End Sub
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("20:00:00"), "thismodule"
End Sub

and in the Module:

Sub thismodule()
dTime = Now + TimeValue("08:00:00")
Application.OnTime dTime, "thismodule"

Linked File Is Closed Before It Finishes Recalculation

Apr 27, 2007

I have a workbook with a button to get updated data. The button simply opens the other workbook and then closes it. THe problem is it opens the book and then closes it before the opened book has a chance to finish it calculation resulting in lots of #value errors. The book that is being opened works fine but because it is shared it can't be left open and needs to be closed asap, though it should be allowed to finsih calcs before it gets closed again. If anyone know a way to make the following temporarily halt until the opened book finishes calculating before it closes it.

Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"X:gas daily pricingGD pricing weather call active summer.xls", ReadOnly:=True
ThisWorkbook. Saved = True
ActiveWindow.Close False

Lookup Referencing Closed File Returns Value Error

Aug 13, 2008

I have a file created in Excel 2003 that uses a vlookup to reference another file, also created in Excel 2003. The function returns VALUE when the referenced file is closed. I get the VALUE error whether or not I update links upon opening the file. If I open the source file, the function calculates properly.

Here is the formula when the referenced file is open:

=VLOOKUP(A38,'[June Scorecard confirmation.xls]VPSC Summary'!$C$10:$F$22,4,FALSE)

The full & correct path appears in the formula when the referenced file is closed.

Columns C, D & E in the referenced range contain text, column F contains a Sum. This file is linked to another file, also using lookups. The linked area in this file works without problem, but it is a precedent to the calculation in column F.

Both these files reside on a network in subdirectories of the same logical drive. I am using a laptop that briefly had Excel 2007 installed on it, but was wiped clean before it was issued to me.

Subscript Out Of Range When Selecting Range In Closed Worksheet

Apr 28, 2006

I am receiving a 'subscript out of range' error on the lines of code below.

I would note that all variables are declared and all seem meaningful as regards what you would expect at that point.

Below is a snippet from the immediate window which indicates what the values are:
completecashname C:CashDevelopmentMyFolderoutputCASH042706.xls
cashsheetname Formatted Sheet
cashcurrcolumn A
cashfirstrow 2
cashlastrow 876

Also the workbooks are both closed at this point (but it makes no difference)

Set CashCopy = Workbooks(CompleteCashName).Sheets(CashSheetName). _
Range(CashCurrColumn & Cashfirstrow & ":K" & Cashlastrow).Value
Set PelPaste = Workbooks(completepelname).Sheets(PELSheetName). _
Range((PELCurrColumn & PELlastrow)).Value

File Backup To Different Folder Location Automatically Whenever Workbook Closed

1. A workbook is closed

2. In addition to the original workbook being saved, a copy of the workbook with the current date is also saved to the specified location of my choice.

For example

"C:UsersUSER1DesktopBackup Test as of 02-10-14"

3. If a copy of the workbook is already saved with today's date, then overwrite it automatically without prompting the user.

4. All the above happens without any user interaction.

Cell Value Of Closed Workbook With Concatenated File Path In Cells

Sep 24, 2007

I have a report that is collated from several other workbooks. The source workbooks follow the same naming convention throughout the year and so I have managed to concatenate the file path to bring through the text of the filepath and cell reference however cannot work out how to get the value of the cell. For example, I have the file path in A1, file name in B1 and sheet and cell referernce in C1.

I am using {=(A1&B1&C1)} which gives me R:CONFIDENTIALREPORT FOLDER[REPORT 24.09.07.xls]Sheet1!$D$1. To make matters slightly more difficult, the source reports would be closed. Is there an easy way or am I going to have to do this in VBA.

Basically what I want to do is pull data from another file and have it copy it down about 10 lines onto another file. With a seperate sheet for each vehicle. For example:

File 1: Has 2 columns with data

Vehicle Number 1000 Vehicle Type Ford
1001 Chevy
1002 Dodge

File 2: Has a vehicle log sheet, in which i want it to take the data above and copy it down x amount of lines.

Vehicle sheet | Date issued | Hours used

Vehicle Number| (data from file one here) | Vehicle Type (data from other column in file one here)

And have it copy itself down from like A1 to whatever.

These also have to be on seperate sheets within the workspace, and each "tab" be named after the vehicle number,
