Is there a way to write somethign that will go to a particular folder on your computer and bring back the Names of all files in that folder?
I need to build a sheet that lists certain information from each file, which is already included in the file name - trying to avoid opening hundreds of files just to get data from one cell....for example:
I need to make this macro read FOLDER names instead of FILE names. When I posted this question yesterday to get this macro, I wasn't told that each file in its own folder. I need the folder names now. _____________________________________
Sub test() With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch .LookIn = "C:Ford" .SearchSubFolders = False .Filename = "*.*" .FileType = msoFileTypeAllFiles If .Execute() > 0 Then For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count Cells(i, 1) = .FoundFiles(i) Next i Else Cells(i, 1) = "No files Found" End If End With End Sub
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 need help in creating a code which will search for files in a destination path and popluate a table to tell me if the file is present(Yes or No).
To explain I need a code which will find a specific path depending on the criteria and check if the files are present in those folders. These files will be named as todays date. Please find below the table format....
I need a macro which checks for next available number from list of filenames in a folder. Then it returns that value to one predefined cell in a new document (here Untitled.xls). For example:
has the following files: Untitled.xls - read only abc-09-001.xls abc-09-002.xls abc-09-003.xls abc-09-004.xls
Next available filename should be "abc-09-005" and macro returns that value to predefined cell in a new document (Untitled.xls). There should be NO saving at this point whatsoever. Macro simply picks the next value from a filelist. As you've noticed the value has some constants too. New document doesn't know the last picked value before macro is active (predefined cell should be empty at startup).
I am adding a list of file names to a combobox list and want to filter this by adding only the filenames that have been modified today. I have used the FileDateTime(Fil) but it leaves the combobox empty. I am using the code below. how to add only the files modified today.
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.
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".
I'm using VBA to query file information (path, name, size, dates, etc.) on files on a SharePoint site and returns them to Excel. I'm curious if also returning the document's permissions is possible. If not for the document, can one programmatically get the folder's permissions?
how I would be able to weed out and remove previous references to query names.
For example if I have an external data query named "qry1 by week", then remove the query, then create another one, how do I use the same query name again? Surely there's a reference to it somewhere, that I can eliminate?
how to automate a web query whereby names on a list in Excel are pasted into a website’s text box search and the returned data is copied into Excel? I have a list of racehorses that I need data for which is available at: http://www.drf.com/workoutHorseSearch.do
I have a worksheet with many tables that I use in formulas.
I like tables for a couple reasons, one being the ability to insert/delete rows without affecting the rest of that worksheet row.
Also, automatic copy of formulas/formatting is great.
But, what I really like about tables is the ability to use the naming conventions in formulas.
Problem is when I save this worksheet, after I close it and open it back up, all table references in my formulas have been converted to cell references.
=IF((SUMIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,">"&'Quote 1'!$J$57:$J$60)*'Quote 1'!$G$57:$G$60)+(COUNTIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,""&'Quote 1'!$J$57:$J$60)*'Quote 1'!$G$57:$G$60)+(COUNTIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,""&tblOSSRV[Min Order Cost])*tblOSSRV[Cost / Part])+(COUNTIF(tblFam[[#Data],[Qty by Factor2]],""&tblOSSRV[Min Parts Per Line])*tblOSSRV[Cost / Part])+(COUNTIF(tblFam[[#Data],[Qty by Factor2]],"
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 the below macro which had previously worked for me, but now I am getting a runtime error. I tried troubleshooting this on my own now, but am coming up with nothing.
Sub ReName_Files() Dim rFiles As Range, rCell As Range Dim StrNewName As String, strOld As String Dim strPath As String Dim wbOpen As Workbook
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set rFiles = Range("A1", Range("A65536").End(xlUp)) strPath = "E:FinanceUtilization Reports2008Month End"
For Each rCell In rFiles strOld = strPath & rCell StrNewName = rCell(1, 2) Set wbOpen = Workbooks.Open(strOld) wbOpen.SaveAs strPath & StrNewName wbOpen.Close Next rCell Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
I have an existing application that uses DAO sql queries to populate a form. It has always worked fine. Earlier this week, I password protected the spreadsheet. Now my DAO query fails. I get a run-time error '3161'. Could not decrypt file.
' Const stExtens As String = "Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes;" Const stExtens As String = "Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes;PWD=money16;"
Private Sub Execute_Query(SQL) 'Instantiate the DAO objects. strDb = ThisWorkbook.FullName Set DAO_ws = DBEngine.Workspaces(0) ' code fails on the line below Set DAO_db = DAO_ws.OpenDatabase(strDb, False, True, stExtens) Set DAO_rs = DAO_db.OpenRecordset(SQL, dbOpenForwardOnly) End Sub
I have to run several different types of macros depending on the folders. each folder contains several excel files. so what i want to do is if a folder has a certain name run a certain macro, Here is the code:
VB: Sub Macro1() '//Change the path to the main folder, accordingly Call RecursiveFolders("C:Path") End Sub
then call macro 2 end what syntax code should go there?
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'm looking for a macro which within a sheet named "foldernamedump" will list in a column the folder names within a directory I specify. I have seen a couple of sample codes but I just cant seem to get them working at all so I think its best to start from scratch and the work i get supplied here is always perfect. I also want the macro to clear the contents of the sheet before it loads again just to ensure there is no old data within the sheet.
In order to get inventory data from our Incode database, I've been creating an output file with the extension .IRP Thinking that excel would not bring in this data from the .IRP file directly, I would then create a txt file of it with notepad. I've recently discovered that I can bring it in directly from the .IRP
The file being created is in this format:
IN Stock Status Report - 6385.IRP
The number portion, 6385 in the name will vary everytime I generate a new report. However the text portion will not.
Currently, I've recorded a macro the bring in the data to my excel spreadsheet.
But it will only bring in data for the set filename.
I have sub folders with names 0001, 003A, 0032 etc in a main folder. I am using the following code to copy these sub folders name to the worksheet column A. This works well except that folder 0001 is copied as 1, 0032 as 32. How to modify the code so that 0001 is displayed in column A instaed of 1.
