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:

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.

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.

Read Values From One Workbook Into An Array

Jul 7, 2006

I am trying to create a "macro" that will read values from one workbook into an array based on a key field. If the key isn't present the cells data is not to be stored. After the records are stored i want to test them agains a range in a differnt workbook. If the data compared matches a stored value, leave it alone. If there is no match, a cell needs to be added with a value stating a differnce.

Like i stated i am new at this and have no clue how to compare an data array to a field. Let alone read the values into the array.

Manipulate Values & Formatting In Closed Workbook

Mar 22, 2008

I have 2 workbooks, one containing all my code and userforms and another containing all my data (which is continuously updated/ dynamic). I want to be able to manipulate the data without ever opening the workbook (at the moment I use the open workbook method, but it is extremely slow). I have found some code (Jwalk) which I think meets my needs (and is instant). I have adapted this so it points to a specific path rather than the active path as below etc. but I need to adapt it further so that:

1. When the data is opened it is formatted exactly the same as it is in the original sheet which includes any coloured cells, bold fonts, cell width, height and so on

2. Any changes I make can be saved back to the original sheet in the closed workbook.

3. The data always opens in a named specific worksheet i.e. "TempSheet" which sits in the workbook containing the code (my code is called from a userform within this workbook).

The code I am using from Jwalk is as follows:

Sub GetDataDemo()

Dim FilePath$, Row&, Column&, Address$

'change constants & FilePath below to suit
Const FileName$ = "Book1.xls"
Const SheetName$ = "Sheet1"
Const NumRows& = 10
Const NumColumns& = 10
FilePath = ActiveWorkbook.Path & ""

I am still learning VBA and can adapt/write small pieces of simple code, I have tried incorporating the paste special method, but in all honesty, don't know what I am doing and it results in lots of errors. Can anyone help me get this working/point me in the right direction? Also, what does 'Const' do? how do I bring in the data without specifying the number of rows, as this will be different every time?

I am having a workbook (say a.xlsm) which has value entry fields and some values are given to another workbook (say b.xlsm) which has some sort of calculations and the result is projected back to the book a. most of the time book b will be closed. I am using Excel 2010.

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.

Apr 2, 2008

I have one excel workbook which has 10 rows of data. I need to access another excel wb which has 10 rows of data and get the variance. The key here is wb 1 has the data as I manual gather it and it changes very often. WB 2 also changes to equal the number of rows in Wb 1.

A> I would like to call Wb 2 from Wb 1 and copy those 10
B> It should be able to handle change in the number of rows in WB 2
C> It should be able to call workbook 2 irrespective i name it differently.

Is there a way i can achieve all the 3 above?

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.

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?

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.

Copy Data From Closed Workbook And Append In Active Workbook?

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)
