Extracting Data From Workbooks In Single Folder Using User Made Button

Jun 28, 2014

I have the following macro in my spreadsheet to extract specific data from closed workbooks in a folder. It works great but what I would like to do is make it so I can just open the spreadsheet and press a button I create that will extract the data from the folder that it lies in.

Currently I have this specific spreadsheet just sitting by itself and I manually work out the address of where my spreadsheets lie and add that address into the code and run the macro. I find it a little cumbersome and me not knowing a hell of a lot in VBA don't know what the command is to make it pull the data from the folder that it resides in. Once I do this then I can create a button and assign the macro to it. Can change the code to be able to extract the data from all of the workbooks in the folder that the macro enabled spreadsheet lies?

VLOOKUP Not Extracting The Data

Jan 7, 2009

I have a problem with VLOOKUP not extracting the data I need from 1 workbook.

I want to populate 4 different sheets in the "108" workbook with data from the "1st" workbook. I've uploaded the workbooks to show the formulas I have already. The data in "1st" workbook changes daily and can have upwards of 2000 rows. I've simplified the list for the example.

In the "108" workbook I want to fill in the first three columns with the formula down to about row 500.

I've tried different formulas to do this using EXACT, MATCH, and VLOOKUP but to no avail.

Vlookup- Table That Has Data Which Uses A Number Which Correlates To An Item

Jan 11, 2010

I am using a vlookup with a table that has data which uses a number which correlates to an item. A person types the number into a cell which triggers the vlookup. See example


So..if someone enters let say number 36 into the look up cell..since 36 does not exist in the table the vlookup returns the value next to cell 37. Is there a way to use vlookup so that if a number it is looking up does not exist it wont return the next value? I would like to return an error message if the number being looked up does not exist.

Excel 2010 :: Cross Checking Info With VLookup And Extracting Data From Sheet

May 9, 2014

So in my excel document I have it such that on the first sheet (Labeled 'Sorted') the data is set up as follows: LOCATION, EXTENSION, NAMEWith the appropriate data under each header. On the second sheet (Labeled 'Locations_Ext') I have a named range called Locations; it contains extensions from a separate document, names of people associated with the extensions from the document, and their locations on the map. I am trying to have it such that the excel matches the extension number given on the first sheet with the ones that I extracted from the document on the second and output the location into the first column on the first sheet. The code I have set up for that process is:


I then want the excel to cross check the information that I took from the Visio to see if the visio is up to date with the latest info we have received (Which is the data on the first page under Extension and Name). The code:


Both codes seem to be giving me this: #N/A as the results for every cell.. I'm using MS 2010

Can use formula or use VBA. Can't seem to find a way using the Excel interface to do this.

Extracting Postcode Ranges To A Single Cell

Sep 24, 2009

I have a very large spread sheet of about 20,000 rows. I need to output to a cell postcode ranges based on the Zone. Not all the numbers in the postcode zones are consecutive.

For the example below, the output cell for the DWN range would display like this: 0800-0801, 0804, 0810-0813

Each output cell postal range must be specific to each zone.

Postcode Zone 0200 CBA 0200 CBA 0221 CBA 0800 DWN 0800 DWN 0801 DWN 0804 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0811 DWN 0812 DWN 0812 DWN 0813 DWN

Is there anyway to do this without manually doing it? I would like to tell you I've tried this and that but I've never done anything like this before so I really don't know where to start.

Extracting Data From File In Directory And Extracting Filename

Mar 20, 2014

I have a directory folder with an active workbook and another workbook id like to copy data from. The Following macro opens up a file in the same directory, copies some data and pastes it in the active workbook. However with this code I have to specify the filename, 'Data.xlsm' in the example code. I would like it to copy data from the only other workbook in the current directory WITHOUT having to specify the name in the code, so just opening it up no matter what filename it has.

In addition I would like to extract the filename from the workbook im copying data from and paste it into the activewoorkbook in sheet 1 Cell A1. I had a look at getopenfilename function but cant seem to make it work for my purpose.

Vlookup Does Not Recognize Item In An Array

Sep 20, 2006

I am working with a friend on their spreadhseet which uses several vlookups in order to pull information cells in one worksheet to another, and also to pull object types from a list with values saved as an array. However, one item in the array consistently does not appear.

I noticed that his array has 4 columns, unsorted, where I would have used 2 (one with the object type, and the second with the value corresponding to that object type) and then sorted them.

The error he gets is "A value is not available to the formula or function", even though the value is in the array.

I have already eliminated formatting, spelling errors, bad formula (it works for the other types), and all I can come back to is the array.

The file is too large to attach, so I am attaching some description of the formulas and the structure of the array.

Extracting Variables From Quartic Function (4th Degree Polynomial)

Apr 10, 2012

I have quite a number of 4th degree polynomials and attempting to extract the variables from every equation. I used the formula below (from another thread);

=LOOKUP(99^99,--("0"&MID(A1,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"0 123456789")),ROW($1:$10000))))

but it only extracts the first variable.

4th degree polynomial function: f(x) = ax^4 + bx^3 + cx^2 + dx + e

Example of one of the equations: Y = -42.4276 + 319.989 X - 809.094 X^2 + 942.247 X ^3 - 397.587 X^4

I'll like to have the final result like below (Based on the Example equation above)

Nesting Index / Match Function Within Vlookup Function?

Dec 3, 2013

let me start by saying that I know an example workbook would be useful here, but the part I'm struggling with is the [managementroster.xlsm] file, and there is A. no way I can release it to the internets and B. its so huge/complicated I couldn't even begin to reproduce a portion of it, scrubbed of data, and hope to maintain its functionality in a meaningful manner.


This formula checks a staff number on this spreadsheet, and then goes and looks at the staff number on the roster. Once found, it returns that staff members roster, but changes any manager codes in the MRC list to Mgr, and changes all other roster codes to Free.

I now need this formula, before altering roster codes to Mgr or Free, to only return codes that are a match for another table (or after really. I don't particularly care, so long as only codes are shown that match data from another table). I think an index/match function would do the trick, but this forumula is already at the edge of my excel ability, nesting another function within it is completey beyond me. The relevant cells for the index/match function would be:

This first Match function targets the column. $E3 is the date required, $BA$1:$DN$1 is the range the dates are entered in
Match: Lookup value = $E3
Lookup array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'$BA$1:$DN$1
match type = 0

This second Match function targets the row. $A$4 is the department name, $B$434:$B$452 is the range where all departments are entered

Match: Lookup value = $A$4
Lookup Array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'$B$434:$B$452
match type = 0

Index: array = $BA$434:$DN$452

So I think my final function is

[Code] .....

But I have absolutely NO idea where it would fit within my first formula, or how to code it so that my original formula only reproduces results that are found in both sheets, or anything.

VLOOKUP / INDEX / MATCH Function: Match Data From 2 Independent Sets??

Oct 8, 2009

I am trying to match data from 2 independent sets, formatted slightly differently so not sure which function would work best for me. From the attached file, I am trying to match the date and time stamp (in cell A1) with that from the other data (in this example in cell E1) and return the data (from cell F1) to cell C1. So basically any date and time stamp before 04/03/09 04:00 will return a value of 44 (this value should appear, therefore in cells C1 - C30)

Restricting Input

Oct 9, 2009

I have taken over a workbook that due to various constraints elsewhere I cannot change the structure.

Each of the three columns in question C, E & F have dropdown validation lists.

Column C is either Import or Export
Column E is a list of locations where work is Imported From
Column F is a list of locations where work is Exported To.

Based on whatever choice is made in column C either Import or Export I only want the user to be able to select a value in E or F.

So if Import is selected then a value cannot be entered in F

VLookup Work With Multiple Numbers Within A Single Cell

Aug 15, 2009

I built an Excel Macro to pull information from my schedule and compile it within another Worksheet. The Macro below searches for an instance of "Unavailable" and then populates my Data Worksheet with the WeekDays (ie: M-W-F or ALL Week), the Details (ie: Vacation or Training) and the Name of the employee. I struggled with a way to populate my employee name as "unavailable" isn't always offset by the same amount of characters to employee name (as it is with WeekDays and Details). Instead, I collected the row in which "Unavailable" was found.

I used the Vlookup function to populate the number of Absences and it worked swell.


C2 is populated with Weekdays (ie: ALL week or M-W-F)
O contains a list of possible day combinations
P contains the number of days

I hoped to use a similar function to populate my employee names. This didn't work well a 'tall.

Restricting The Search To One Column

May 1, 2007

I am trying to get a macro that converts Japanese digits to their Roman counterparts but does it only in a specific column. My original version just selected the J column and then Cells.Replace ran just fine on just that column. I have discovered, however, that the users may make the crucial column either J or K, so I changed it to search for the header first, and then select that column. It replaces in the entire sheet, however.

Here's what I've got (I've only given you one digit replacement. The What doesn't display properly because this forum doesn't display Japanese):
