Renaming Files In Infinite Number Of Sub Folders?

Feb 25, 2014

I have written a procedure that renames excel files within a folder based on certain words being in the title. It works for the files in the first lot of subfolders but I am trying to work out how to get it to rename all files in all subfolders regardless of the level.

I've seen similar things done using recursive subs but I have been trying to convert some of the sample codes I've found online to fit my situation and am not having much luck.

how to manipulate my code into something like a recursive procedure or anything else that will do what I want.

Here is my code.

Consolidate Data From Multiple Files Within Folders & Sub Folders

Aug 16, 2009

I have managed to get this far - I have put together a macro (from different threads on this site) that opens closed workbooks, copies data in one of the sheets (same sheet in each of 28 books), and pastes the data it into a master book sheet, each paste starting below the last. So that bit is working. The first bit of help I need is a line of code that will make the macro loop through a number of sub folders in a main folder. My code at the moment works as long as I specify a path that ends with the name of one subfolder, and it only loops through this subfolder. I would like the path to end at the folder that holds all the subfolders ('Workbooks' in the path below), and then add some code that tells it to apply the macro to all subfolders in this folder, so it loops through them all.

The second issue is that after the macro goes to the closed book(s), copies the data in there and pastes it into the master sheet (into columns E:FG), I then need it to go back to the workbook it just copied from, go the same sheet, to three specific cells on that sheet (FH1:FH3), copy the content, go back to the master sheet, and now repeatedly paste the content (values only and transposed) of these three cells into three cells (in columns B:D, with row number being dependent on what rows the first lot of data was copied into) next to every row it just previously pasted in for me. When it loops to the next workbook, it needs to do the same, and the three cells will have different content than the ones in the previous workbook paste.

I dont know how to define the range it needs to paste into the second time. I tried using the definition I used for the first paste (MCDrow), to tell it that it is the same rows, just different columns, but this is not working.

Here is what I have so far, which does the first part of what I need, except for needing a way to have it loop through all subfolder in the 'Workbooks' folder (at the moment it lists Barwon South West as a subfolder in that path, but I actually have multiple subfolders, not all called Barwon South (all different names) that it needs to loop through and do both the first and the second paste for. I have taken out the code I was trying to use to do the second paste, as this was not working and the code is pretty messy as it is (I sort of bumble along, being so new, and I know the code is not very clean or efficient!).

Can someone help me put in the few lines I need to loop through all my subfolders (if you give me an example I can probably extrapolate), but to get you started, three of the subfolders are Barwon South West, Eastern Region and Gippsland. And can someone help me put in the code that will do the second paste for each workbook?

Sub Click2()

Application. ScreenUpdating = True
Dim MCDrow As Long
'Dim SubFolders As String
MCDrow = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Client Data").Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row

Fpath = "Q:Clinical ServicesCS Statewide DatabaseWorkbooksBarwon South West" ' change to your directory
'SubFolders = True
Fname = Dir(Fpath & "*.xls")
Do While Fname <> ""

ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Client Data").Unprotect

Workbooks.Open Fpath & Fname
Worksheets("Client Data").Activate
Worksheets("Client Data").Unprotect

Copy And Rename Files In VBA By Searching Multiple Folders For Files?

Jan 4, 2014

how I can loop through folders to select files starting with a certain word and copy all of them to a different folder and rename them. The folder structure is given below

Renaming Files Using VBA

Sep 15, 2009

I have forty files in a folder that are generated by a system every day.
The files all have something in common, they all include "V9TEST" in them.

for example:
123asdfV9test.20090915123456
160asdfV9test.20090915124455

I would like to run a script that would rename these files in the folder, taking out the V9test part.

result:

Renaming Files From A Spreadsheet

Dec 1, 2007

to take a spreadsheet in excel and rename files with it. I will get all the columns together and

named properly by using the concatenate function. So when i go to rename i would have a

list of say 5,000 things to rename. In column A will be the full path. In column B will be the

new name i want it to replace the old one with extension and all. The reason i want to do this

is because that way i can work with the 5,000 files column A, B, C, D, get everything the

way i want it and then concatenate them. Then rename the files after copying and repasting

them so there is no formula. This would just be much easier than having to go to each

individual file and rename. also a lot easier to be able to compare and see what is going on

in spreadsheet i can sort compare. just a lot easier. i have messed around with excel some

but not macros much. what i would like to do is for a macro to look in A1 for path then

rename with B1. then A2 for path then rename with B2. loop through all rows until there is

nothing in A? that way there does not have to be a certain number of files. i do not know if

example
A1
C: estSGB04SGB04-08 - Frank Sinatra - Wives And Lovers.zip

rename to B1

SGB04-08 - Sinatra, Frank - Wives And Lovers.zip

VBA - Renaming Files In A Folder And Then Combining Them

Feb 21, 2014

I have a system that creates text files once a day in a set folder. I want to have a VBA script that will combine all text files in the folder (C:Daily Folder) into one text file (Full.txt) using a simple cut/paste addition, i.e., the lines from the second file are added after the lines from the first, the lines of the third after those, etc. The order does not matter.

I know there are other threads about combining text files and I'm sure I can figure that out if need be, but the problem is the system creates these files by adding .XXX to the name, with XXX being the file order number. So after 4 days, I have four files named K2500.001, K2500.002, K2500.003, and K2500.004. Windows reads these as being four different file types (.001, .002, .003, and .004). If you click on one of the files, Windows prompts you to associate it with an application. I've tried shell commands such as ren *.* *.txt , but the use of a "." in the file name seems to be a problem. Is there a way to change all "." to "-"? I've tried some PowerShell scripts there that haven't worked. I'd like a VBA solution because I don't know my butt from a hole in the ground when it comes to shell programming and so that it can be added to my VBA script for the Full.txt file.

Maybe the files don't need to be renamed at all--like I said, the end goal is the Full.txt file in C:Daily Folder that contains all the lines from the daily text files.

Renaming Files And Changing Vlookup References

I have about 85 files that I need to rename. These files contain data concerning delivery and quality data of each of our suppliers...1 file per supplier.

Current File Name: SupplierA 2012.xlsx

Is there a way to do mass rename the files..

and that leads to my second question...each of these files contain vlookups to 2012 data...which is contained in the a file with 2012 in the file name. I need to replace source data file (i.e. 2012 Index) with the new file containing the 2013 data (i.e 2013 Index). Is there a way to replace that source data across 85 or so files using some time of mass find and repalce? All the cell references remain the same

VBA Saving PDF Files Into Folders

Sep 29, 2013

I have this code that generates excel pages as pdf files, but I can't get it to save it in its individual folders. For example, I have the sheet name as Brian Lin, I want to save the pdf into the folder called Brian Lin, then if I have the sheet name as Lilly Tran, the pdf should save into the folder called Lilly Tran. Here's my code. The code is one step short of what I want it to do, it saves in the folder right before the name folders.

Code:

Sub Macro1()
Dim wsh As Worksheet, vWshs
Dim sFolderName As String, set_Path As String, name As String, hwas As String, sname As String, swsname As String
vWshs = Array("Rates", "Inputs")
set_Path = "C:UsersJonathanDesktopFaFundInvoices" & hwas & ""

List Files And Folders

Jun 19, 2008

I have a folder that has a bunch of other folders in it, each containing many files. Is there an easy way to get a file directory into excel, so that I now would have a spreadsheet that tells me what all the folders are and what files are in each one?

short example: main folder = mystuff
subfolder1 = my pix, contains pic1 and pic2
subfolder2 = otherstuff, contains otherstuff1 and otherstuff2

Can excel find these things and give me a list indicating that the 'mystuff' folder contains these two folders, and also list the two files under each folder?

How To Assign Macros On All Files In Sub Folders

Apr 13, 2014

I have my main directory C:Perinatal Within that directory I have folders that contain results for each medical conditions (see attachments)

Within each subdirectory are 6 workbooks with (untidy) data results, all the same format just different numbers for each analysis. I want my MAIN_MACRO to loop through every single .xls file in the C:Perinatal, cleaning up the data of all files, and then saving.

I can use the following code to cycle through each folder one at a time, however, I'd like to loop through every subdirectory of

C:Perinatal instead to speed up the process, rather than having to change the path for each subfolder (e.g. C:PerinatalCANCERALL). Is this possible?

If this isn't possible how can I create a 'MyPaths' list and loop through all those directories.

VBA Macro To Loop Through Folders And Select Files With Certain Criteria

Feb 6, 2014

I'm looking to create a macro that does the following:

- Loops through a folder structure
- Opens a specific subfolder within each folder based on name (i.e. "*Financials*")
- Opens a specific file within that subfolder "*Financials*" based on both most recently modified a naming criteria (i.e. "*Model*")
- Performs an action on that file (a macro created elsewhere that I assume I can call here)
- Closes that file, and moves on to the next file matching the criteria above

As a self-diagnosed VBA novice, I'm having trouble adapting code found in various forums for my specific project.

I've found examples that address aspects of my desired macro or do similar things, but I can't figure out how to put them together.

Looping Through Files In Multiple Folders Searching For Certain Values

May 1, 2013

I'm trying to code a macro to search through all the files in certain folders to find a value defined by the user. The rows containing that value will then be copied and pasted into a separate workbook. My boss currently planning on storing about 550 different files (90 days worth of data) between these folders, but there is the possibility of years worth of data collection, should he change his mind about the 90 days, so I'd like the code to be efficient if possible. What I've tried to do is search each file for the value, then set a range equal the first row containing that value. If the value is found in that workbook, the code loops through the worksheet, adding all the other rows with that value to the range. Then the file looping exits (the values I'm looking for are only contained in one of the workbooks) and the range is copied and pasted into the master workbook. Each workbook has only one sheet.

I'm currently getting a run-time error "13" Type Mismatch error when it gets to the line where the code is supposed to find the value and initialize the range.

Code:
Private Sub SubmitButton_Click()

Dim mybook As Workbook
Dim masterbook As Workbook
Dim rownunm As Long
Dim pathparts(1 To 5) As String

Using Macro To Print Various Word And Excel Files In Different Folders

Jun 2, 2014

What I want to create is an excel file such as:

A
B
C

1
File
Qty
Yes/No

[Code]......

Where Qty sets how many copies for that particular doc, and Yes/No determines if it needs to be printed at all.

Each file will be in a subfolder relative to the excel file.

So it would work like this (somehow)

If Cell, C2 = 1, then print CurrDirSection1examplefile.xlsx, qty= B2 , defaultprinter
If Cell, C3 = 1, then print CurrDirSection2examplefile.docx, qty= B3 , defaultprinter
If Cell, C4 = 1, then print CurrDirSection2examplefile.docx, qty= B4 , defaultprinter

Move Files To Dynamic Folders Based On Cell Value

May 13, 2007

I am not so sure this can be done through a macro, but here is what I want.

I have a folder with say around 1000 excel workbooks. I need a macro to

1. Open each file in the directory specified
2. Read the contents of a particular cell, for ex, A1
3. Create a folder in the same directory with the value of A1
4. And, move the excel workbook itself to that folder.

5. Then it opens the next file
6. If the value of A1 is the same as that in the first workbook, it simply moves it to the already created folder, else it creates another folder with the new value of A1 and moves it there.

Hope I am not too confusing. Searching the forums does not give me an exact picture of how it can be done.

Note: I would also like an option where when I execute the macro, it should pop up with an option to select the folder in which the files are, since the files are not always saved in a static file path.
