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.

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.

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”.

Copy Data From Closed Workbook And Append In Active Workbook?

Feb 6, 2013

I have some vba that opens a closed workbook, copies data from a named range and then pastes it to the active workbook.

However, what is happening is that the closed workbook is opened and only part of the data is pasted. What I would prefer to happen is this:

Open the closed workbook-->copy the named range-->paste(append) to next empty cell in column B.

Heres the code that I have got.

Sub Workbook_test()Dim wb As Workbook
Application.ScreenUpdating = False ' turn off the screen updating
Set wb = Workbooks.Open("G:WAREHOUSEPlanningSmartNew Training Plan raining plan.xls", True, True)

Read Many Cell Values From Closed Workbook

Apr 16, 2009

I've recently discovered the usefulness of VB in excel and have managed to write some basic macros that enhance many of my workbooks. BUT, I've bumped into a problem I can't seem to solve. Please help!

I'm looking to import the values in a large range of cells ( 5 x 5000) in a closed workbook into a range that i specify in an open one, where both workbooks are housed in the same directory. I also want to include logic that allows me to move the 2 files to different directories (the names will never change, only the paths) and have the code still work--I believe i'd use relative path references?

I've found lots of snippets of code on the topic but can't seem to get any of them to work. For instance: http://spreadsheetpage.com/index.php...a_closed_file/

Problem is, I'm so new that I don't even know where to begin pasting the code (objects vs. modules, etc) in the VBA editor.

Add COUNTIF To Cell & Reference Closed Workbook

Jul 27, 2007

i'm trying to do a COUNTIF from an open workbook. The range I want for it is in another workbook, which I do not want to have open every time I run the macro.

This is my current
Sub cellLink()
Sheets("Calls In-Out Trend").Range("ag18").Formula = _
"=COUNTIF('C:***[*.xls]sheet name'I:I, QXO)"
End Sub

editthe range is just so I can see if it's giving the right values, the range won't be like that once I get it working. I'll probably be using logic statements to place them in the appropriate cells. The * is just me taking out the directory names, its on the desktop)

It can copy cell values from another unopened workbook, but when I try to put in COUNTIF it doesn't want to compile/run the script.

That's basically the question. Here's some background and my aim:

I'm scanning row I:I for certain keywords which I then count up and put into corresponding columns of a chart.

Pull Cell Value From Another Workbook

Jan 29, 2014

I want to be able to identify an Excel workbook in a cell, then have another cell pull the value from a specific cell in that workbook.

In the sample attached, I want the formula in cell C4 to pull the value in cell D35 from the workbook identified in cell C3. When I click within the brackets [C3] it asks me to choose a file name from my Explorer file list. "='[other_workbook.xlsx]Audit Information'!D35. I don't want to do that and want it to choose the file listed in cell C3.

Use Cell Data To Refer Worksheet In Closed Workbook

Jan 29, 2010

At the moment, I have a project where everyone is putting work data on seperate workbooks. Each months work is placed onto another worksheet within that workbook.

The supervisor has his own workbook, that grabs data from each of the workers books. Getting the data is easy enough, however because the supervisor has barely any knowledge of computers, I would like to make it as easy to set up for future months.

Right now, data is collected in each cell using the following formula:-

='[otherusersworkbook.xls]December 2009'!$C$620

Is there a way of getting that phrase to substitute the part that says "December 2009" with whatever is put into column A on the same row?

Prompt Open Closed Workbook Then Copy Range And Paste Special Into Open Workbook

Apr 6, 2013

I have created a spreadsheet some time ago and have been asked to improve on it but I'm rusty with VBA.

I have an automated ordering system that saves each sent order as the date e.g "05-04-2013.xls" but the management team want a graph with the data for the last 4 weeks compared. I have created a seperate workbook called "consumables report.xls" which has a column with the products listed followed by columns "Quantity" and "cost" which is repeated for the 4 weeks of the month.

I want to add a button to prompt the user to choose the saved order e.g "05-04-2013.xls" (all orders saved in same directory) to copy and paste the quantity and cost columns (c8,D69) into "consumables report.xls". I got this to work earlier but it would only paste the formulas and not the values. So I need

A prompt to open workbook
Copy range (c8,d69)
Close work sheet
Paste special .value (c8,D69)

I dont care if it has to open the workbook to copy the data as this will only be used once a month so it dosnt matter how slow the code is.

week 1 week 2 week 3 week 4

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.

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.
