Rename Some Files That I Have In A Folder
I want to rename some files that I have in a folder, the names I want to end up with are in an excel sheet.
So the below 2 files are what 2 files are call currently, the file name below is what I want to change it to.
01 - Whigwield - Saturday Night.cdg
01 - Whigwield - Saturday Night - which is a music file.
I want to rename the file to this,
SF010-1 WHIGFIELD - SATURDAY NIGHT
The next file is
02 - Take That – Sure.cdg
02 - Take That – Sure – which is a music file.
I want to rename it to:
SF010-2 TAKE THAT - SURE
Rename Multiple Files In A Folder Macro
I have 400ish departmental budget files in a folder that I need to upload to a Sharepoint doc library. The files in the folder will have to exactly match the files we already have set up in sharepoint in order to upload them to the sharepoint site. As it stands now there is only one consistency between the sharepoint files and the budget files in the folder, which is the department number (which every file in both begins with).
I'm thinking some sort of macro will let me insert a sheet into each of the files in the budget folder, which would have a formula that pulls the department number from a certain sheet in the file, and produce the file name I want into a certain cell. Then I would like a macro that goes into each file and renames it based on that cell. I'd like to know if this is possible and if there may be a better way to do it.
Copy Folder Contents, And Rename Files
I would like to copy every file named "Current Day.csv" from every subfolder found in the folder c: est
Rename the file as the value in A1 (3 digit code) and B1 (date) and save the file into v: est (and the folder name the file orginally came from)
Is that possible? (looking at about 30 filesfolders so if need be I can define the folder names)
Move & Rename PDF File
I've written most of the code that I need... the problem is that I don't know how to properly select, move and rename the pdf from excel.
I have a popup to select the file, and I know what I want it to be called, what I need is the code to move and rename a non-excel file from inside a macro.
Here is what I have so far:
Dim LastName As String
Dim Street As String
Dim callDate As String
Dim FilePath As String
Dim HouseNumber As String
Dim FullFileName As String
Dim FileName As String
Dim Scan As String
'Ask user what file they want to attach.
Scan = Application. GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="Follow Up Scan, *.pdf", Title:="Please Choose A PDF To Attach")
If Scan <> False Then
Open Files In Folder- Wait 30 Seconds Then Close The Files
I want to allow users to place files (.jpg, .tif, .pdf, .pps etc) into a network folder and then have my program open each file and display it for 30 seconds then close the file and the application before opening the next file.
1. Set up a loop to get a directory listing of the folder and write the listing to a text file.
2. Open up the text file and get the next filename in it
3. Open the file in the associated application
4. Wait for 30 seconds (or some period of time) and then close the file
5. Repeat steps 2-4
DoIt = 1
While DoIt = 1
Open "C:TempList.txt" for output as #1
Print #1, Files In Folder
Open "C:TempList.txt" for input as #2
while not eof(2)
Line input #2, MyFile
Display MyFile on screen
Wait for 30 seconds
Close MyFile and MyApplication that opened it
I can get the directory listing just fine with no problems
I can open the files in the associated application just fine with no problems.
with closing the application after 30 seconds or some period of time.
I need some code that will allow me to easily send it a filename and it will know how to close the file and the application that opened it.
Files Saved To Program Files Folder, Open As Read Only
I have an Excel application (Excel 2003) which is stored in the default Program Files folder by the Installer; for example: c:program fileszxchello.xls. The problem I am running into is this file opens as Read Only in Vista and this is interfering with the running of the application. There is no problem opening the file normally in Windows XP.
I have been able to narrow down the cause of this to the User Account Control system in Vista - if I turn OFF User Account Control, the Excel file opens normally and my application functions normally. Is there another option to open the Excel file without turning OFF User Account Control because some users may find it unacceptable to turn OFF this security feature. Ofcourse, one option is to install the application in another location, outside the Program Folder, and the file would open normally, but the Packaging Wizard that I am using to package the application does not allow me to install the application in any other location and thus, the application installs in the Program Folder and I am running into this problem of the Exel file opening as Read Only. Is there a way out of this situation where I can open the file normally (not as Read Only)?
Printing Of PDF-files
Is it possible to print a pdf file from excel ?
I am making a list with pdf files that are on my hdd. I want to be able to select them and then send them to the printer.
(Yes I know it can be easily done from within the windows explorer by selecting and right-clicking, but my excel-file has to be able to do more than that )
Printing Pdf Files
We have a set of documents, all pdf files, residing in a network server. The shipping personnel will have a Laserjet 8150 ND (also on the network) to print the document they need at the time of shipment, for a specific product (the pdf files are actually User's Manuals for various products we sell).
We would like to create an Excel form, listing those documents, with a selection method to indicate which document is to be printed and how many copies. Then clicking on a "PRINT" button will send a command to the printer to print the desired manual.
I searched the forum threads and noticed that the subject mostly deals with printing TO pdf, whereas my need is to print pdf FROM Excel, but no such a command exists.
Creating Pdf Files
I have a looping macro in Excel using
"For Each Cell in Range ()"
where the range is a list of department names which produces a report
for each department. Instead of hard copy, I would like to produce
individual PDF files one per department, but can't find way of
changing the output file.
Automation Of Creating PDF Files
We are trying to automate the creation of PDF files for each sheet in an Excel file,a nd keep getting error messages. Can someone help? It produces the post script file, but it has no data nd then doesn't create a PDf file at all. We have Excel 2003, and have the below code setup.
Launching Pdf Files In A Macro
I have a macro that launches word or excel files if the file address (e.g. C:Documents and SettingsHenryDesktop est.xls) is typed into cell A1 by looking at the last 3 letters of the file name.
I cannot find a way to enable it to launch pdf files as well (e.g. C:Documents and SettingsHenryDesktop est.pdf)
Open PDF Files Via Macro
How can I code a Macro in Excel to search in a preset directory and pull out, aka open/run a certain Adobe Acrobat .pdf file automatically? Is this even possible to code in Excel Macro or is it out of its scope of what Excel VB code can do?
Right now I have a very repetitive task where depending on the value of a certain field in Excel I have to search for the right/corresponding .pdf file and open it up do work in the .pdf as well as the Excel worksheet... I have to do like hundreds of this. So is there a quick way to code in Excel that a certain value will open a certain file named .pdf acrobat file? Can other programs/files be called upon and ran/started/opened from within Excel Macro?
Rename Multiple Text Files
In a folder I have several text files (each text file is a customer statement)
I get the files from the computer dept named randomly, I need to rename each
File to its customer ID number, each ID consists of 15 characters (including the dash characters) and is found on the 3rd row of the file (3rd row , skip one character And count 15 characters ex : 0010-902514-422)
I found a code that renames the text files incrementally (1,2,3…..). I need to modify the code so that instead of renaming the files that way I rename them by their ID number (get the ID of each file while looping then rename It by that ID)
One more thing, can I get the ID then skip 44 characters and attach the following 14 characters to the ID (ex : 0010-902514-422- Lebanese Pound). ttached is a folder containing an excel file with the code and 2 statements

Printing All Files Within A Folder
Ive just finished creating a continuos rolling spreadsheet that will allow people to keep adding records onto. I then have a macro that will every so often take each record and sort them by month and week ending date. So Im left with a month folder with 4 week ending date folders within it etc. Now for reporting purposes those files will need to be printed, so what I am after is a mthod of selecting one of the month folders, and it will automatically go into each weekending folder and print all the files within.
Renaming Files In A Folder
Every week I get a folder full of files and I have to rename them with a week ending date...Below is what I hacked together, but it's not working...
Dim OldName, NewName, npath As String
weekendingdate = InputBox("What is W/E Date??")
npath = "J:Test*.pdf"
While Smith ""
OldName = Smith: NewName = Smith & weekendingdate
Name OldName As NewName
Open All Files From A Folder
I have created a Spreadsheet that does all of the calculations, analysis, graphs, etc. that i need; however every time I wish to use this spreadsheet I need to first open up a spreadsheet with data, copy it and then paste it into the original spreadsheet. While this is not horrible, it is quite tedious to do several thousand times.
Thus, I was wondering if it were possible to create a Macro that would open up all files in a specific folder, then select each one and paste the relevant data into my original spreadsheet. I know this possible for specific files; for example, I have created a Macro that will select files data.xls, dats1.xls, data2.xls, and paste these into the spreadsheet, but I was wondering if there was a way to generalize this so that it will simply open every file regardless of the name or how many files there are in the specific folder.
Open Files In A Folder
I want open excel files in a folder with ascending order how can I do this,
Eg:- In C:6-11-28 folder there are files as F1.xls, F2.xls , F3.xls......
I want to open above files and get some data from each excel file
Folder name change as System date
Merge All Files In A Folder
I haven't really been able to find a total solution to an issue I have had for a while and hope someone can help.
I have a series of workbooks that I create from Crystal reports, I want to do the following after clicking a button on a form:-Open up two files in a folder with similar names (IL-BA, IL-BA-19), both have the same headers
Open a Third file, this is my 'Master File' and is in a different location, this has the same headers
Copy from the two files onto 1 sheet on my master file (excluding the headers)
Close the first two files without saving and move them to a 'Done' folder
Save and Close the Master File
Move onto the next set of files in the folder (NE - BA,NE - BA - 19) and do the same again, until all the files in the folder have been completed.
All the files in the folder have different data, so have different headers, but the Master file for each set will always have the same headers, (if that makes sense), but they are specifically named, so cycling through the named files in the folder, merging the two together.
My main problem is that I can't seem to find all the code i need, i can merge the two files, either in different sheets(which i don't want), or with the headers for each file still attached (as i can't seem to find a robust way of removing them).
Modify ALL Files In A Folder
I've (almost) got a macro that modifies & saves a file. I don't want to post it yet because I need to clean it up and I've got a ton of REM'd out statements that I need to flush before I go public....
How can I modify it to open each file in the folder? I'm looking at several thousand files that need to be changed and put away in the correct folder.
(and I say almost because I had it and accidently ran it on my personal workbook and it deleted itself....
Looping Through Files In A Folder
I have written a routine that prompts the user to select an Excel file (using Application. GetOpenFilename) then the routine pulls information from the selected file. I now want to have the user only select the folder and then have the routine loop through every file in the directory, pulling the information from each.
Hyperlink List Of All Files In Folder
I have a question about creating a custom drop down menu. In AutoCAD, I can create custom drop down menus that loads each time AutoCAD loads and i was wondering if excel have something similar. This menu would be added to the default menu list: "File_Edit_View_Insert_Format_Tools_Data...etc". I have searched online but i keep getting things about how to make drop down menus in cells but nothing about adding a main drop down menu.
What I want to do is create a menu with hyper links to all of the excel files we use quite often here at work.
I have already done this by just creating a sheet with a list of hyper links on it but would like to put it in a drop down menu instead if its possible.

Grab Data From All Files With Certain Name In A Folder
Is it possible to have a spreadsheet that when opened grabs data from every file with "*invoice" in the title in folder 2009 and all its sub directories and puts them into a list in the opened file?
The data needed is to be from sheet1, cells B16, C18, G18 from all the files
and i would like B16 put into A2, C18 into B2 and G18 into C2
Then the next sheets data B16 to A3, C18 B3 and G18 to C3 etc etc until all files with invoice in the title have been added.
B16 is a name
C18 is an address and
G18 is a postcode
This means there can be no duplicates so if opened twice there will only ever be 1 of the same address and postcode.
Loop Throough All Files In Folder
I did search but I couldn't find what I want. I have a load of .csv files in a folder. I want to loop through all files, run the macro below and close the .csv file without saving. My macro copied data onto another workbook and saves, but I don't know how to loop through all files within a folder.
I need some code that will open each file in the folder, run the macro below and close it again. I don't know how to put code tags in so I have put the code in a .txt.
Collate Information From All Files In Folder
I have created an Excel Spreadsheet to capture essential information pertaining to a project within a programme. I have used Excel 2003 and protected the sheet with the password ‘Secret’ and the file can be downloaded here: [url]
I now have a number (30 or 40) of these filled out for each project.
I now need to be able to extract the data, specifically the resource profile. I want to be able to run a macro that will open each spreadsheet in a directory and extract the data and populate the spreadsheet ‘Collated Output’ which can be found here: [url]
The data needs to be appended into the table but ignore empty rows. I created the template in such a way that each section has a static range of cell references.
The Template allows the user to change the start month of the resource profile so that needs to be taken into account when extracting the data so that the profile is aligned to the correct month.
Execute A Macro In All Files In A Folder
I found the following code to execute a macro in all excel files in a folder. Sounds amazing! I have a code to add to it, however I am having issues getting it to work. take a look at it and let me know what (more like, how many things). I am adding this to the Sheet 1 Worksheet.
Choosing The Right Files From The Folder Through Vba
I would like to get some help on choosing the right files through vba codes. I have the dates in cell a3 and b3 and all my files ends with the date. The user inputs the date and the code should get the data within that date.
I would like to get some thoughts on how to get the value of cell a3 and b3 and open only those files from the folder.
Opening All .htm Files In Folder
I am trying to come up with a macro that is able to open a .htm file in Excel, perform a set of code, close the file, then repeat the process with the next .htm file in the folder. I found the following post which has helped me thus far, but there is something that is not allowing Excel to open the .htm files even though there is no problem opening them in Excel manually or with another macro I've made. Here is the link to the set of code I'm currently working with:
I've put some .xls and .csv files into the target folder and the program works perfectly which tells me Excel is having a problem with the .htm format for some reason. Here is the set of code I currently have which I have slightly modified for the new file format:
List Of Links To All Files In Folder
We use Excel 2003 and 2007 to track labor data for a field service company. The field tech's complete daily forms and the office staff copy/paste this data into weekly billing worksheets. They use naming conventions to show the jobs and dates in the file name (Daily Labor - Job1 - 031308.xls and Weekly Labor - week ending 3-16.xls. What I would like to do is link the daily data to the weekly forms as they come in. Is there some way to do this when the job names and the dates are always different? Can I tell Excel to expect data files based on the naming conventions as in the Weekly is named "Weekly Labor - Week Ending 3-16.xls so data files named LaborJob1310.csv, laborjob1311.csv would automatically update the weekly sheet? I can put these in a folder and link them, but I don't know how to provide an easy way to do this for the upcoming week.
Function To Count Files In A Folder
I'm trying to create a function to count the number of files in a folder then add one.
I'd like to refer to the function in my spreadsheet, so I can generate a new reference number for my sheet.
Here is the code I've used so far, which I've made reference to in my sheet by typing "=countfiles(Q3)" (Q3 contains the name of the folder I want to search in.
Function countfiles(ByVal foldername As Integer)
.LookIn = "C:Temp" & foldername
.FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks
nooffiles = .FoundFiles.Count
countfiles = nooffiles + 1
When I use simlair code in a macro, it works:
.LookIn = "C:Temp" & Range("Q3").Value
.FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks
Obviously, I would prefer the function option, with reference to it in the cell.
Copy Specific Files To New Folder
I have found out how to creat a new folder, and now what to copy specific files over to this file from a different Directory. Does anyone know how to do this?

Search Folder For Files In 2007
On this forum I read about the application "FileSearch" that doesn't work in office 2007. I used the macro on below in office 2003 and it worked. Now I upgraded to Office 2007 and it doesn't work. But if you search "NewSearch method" in the MS Excel Help you can find that the application exists and it has the same morphology I am using!! Why Doesn't it work??
'Change path to suit
.LookIn = pPath
.FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks
.Filename = "*.xls"
If .Execute > 0 Then 'Workbooks in folder
Move Files From One Folder To Another Up To Maximum
I am trying to create a chart that will automatically expand to include additional rows. I have seen posts and examples of the kind of chart I am aiming for, but only showing one series… my chart needs to show several series and be able to add new ones in automatically. For example, I want to make a chart showing the Total Market, and each separate manufacturer, over 13 time periods. If a new manufacturer appears, I would like the chart to show it without having to manually change the source data. (see attached spreadsheet)
Running Macro Across Multiple Files In Same Folder
I would like my macro to go to a certain folder- in this case N:Aexeo ClientsJabre2008Excel Diet Run, open each workbook therein ( to this end I have found the first part of the code below on another thread) and perform the ExcelDietMacro (also below). I am missing something though as nothing is happening, would anyone know from a quick glance what is wrong? Should I have these as 2 seperate Sub End Subs or combined into one? I know that the Excel Diet is correct thanks to the original designer and Rory on the forum for getting it adjusted to my needs.
Also each workbook within the folder will have the same password to open, is it possible to insert some code in the macro to do this automatically?
Dim MyFileName, MyPath As String
Dim MyBook As Workbook
MyPath = "N:Aexeo ClientsJabre2008Excel Diet Run"
MyFileName = Dir(MyPath & "*.xls")
Do Until MyFileName = ""
Workbooks.Open MyPath & MyFileName
Set MyBook = ActiveWorkbook

Loop Through Folder, Run Macro On All Files
I am trying to process 60+ data files. I've recorded/written macros that do all of the processing, and now I would like to write a loop that will go through a folder with the data files (.txt, tab delimitted), and run the code on each file. I am using the Mac Version of Excel 2004. I have tried to adapt some code that I found in the forums, but after fixing a few errors, now nothing is happening when I run the code. The code is below. I have it in a module in the VBA editor.
length of the code; I'm assuming the problem is in the very beginning or end (the code I added for the loop), as the code in the middle that does the actual processing works.
Dim strDocPath As String
Dim strCurrentFile As String
strDocPath = "Macintosh HD"":Users:thomasarmstrong:Desktop:SF08_Macrosv2:Loop_test:directory:"
strCurrentFile = Dir(strDocPath & MacID("TEXT"))
