Scan Through All Files And Subdirectories

Jan 5, 2009

I am trying to scan through all files within a directory and all subdirectories to find files where the name begins with certain characters. Below is code that will accomplish this for a certain directory, but I do not know how to look through the subdirectories within the specified directory. So, the issues are:

1. How do I loop through each subdirectory within a specified directory?

2. I am trying to return the file name, path name (separate from the file name), and modified date. I can return the name. I can return the path, but it includes the name. Is there a way to return just the path?

3. What is the code to return the modified date of the file?

Loop Through All Files In Subdirectories Of A Directory

Feb 26, 2010

I am having a bit of trouble with a bit of code. I have a bunch of code that I want to run on all excel files that live one level down from my main directory.

I have a general directory (orders) which contains a variable amount of subfolders each month (in picture below, 'Dan', 'Frank', 'Steve'), and I would like to look through all the excel files in 'Dan', 'Frank', 'Steve', but not in the main directory (orders), or any subdirectories within 'Dan', 'Frank', 'Steve'.

I am able to loop through all the excel files in the subdirectories individually if I hardcode the directory names, but as they are variable,

Scan Through Multiple Files

Jun 23, 2009

I send out 300 or so spreadsheets. The spreadsheet contains lines of products that recipients have on hire. Column L allows to the user to put YES or NO on each line, to state whether it is correct or not. The user then sends this sheet back.

The difficult part for me is I have to open each spreadsheet, and deal with all the instances of NO in column L. It takes almost a day to go through every spreadsheet.

Is it at all possible to have some sort of macro, VBA sript or access front page, that allows me to search all instances of 'NO' in all the spreadsheets which are in 1 designated folder?

Hopefully I am making sense in what Im after.. ideally I'd need a button on a spreadsheet that I click to give me all rows that contain NO in column L.

All the file names will be constant each week. (so each file name will be 01 - Hire List.xls, 02-Hire List.xls, 03-Hire List.xls etc etc).

SCAN(A1:P25) To Find A Cell Containing Certain Text

Mar 27, 2007

The issue is to find the address (like A1) to the cell that contain specific text string?

I import text from a web page and I want to calculate some numbers from this information. All the information is spread out in 10-15 columns and 20-25 rows, and the specific value I'm looking for is imported into different rows as the dynamic web page changes, but the column is always the same.

The cell next to the left side of my wanted cell always contain the same text, so I thought I could search or scan the area A1 to P25 for this text and then extract the value of the cell on its right hand.

Scan The Rows And Find The Last Remaining Row

Aug 31, 2009

I can't figure out the specific way to write a Do Until where it exits once there is no more text in any further rows.

Basically scan the rows and find the last remaining row. If there is no data after 20 rows then exit the loop.

This is a sample.




I would want it to understand that there is no information after "J" and to exit the loop.

Drop To The Next Row Each Time I Scan In Each File

Oct 13, 2009

i've created a spreadsheet that will take in scanned files (from a barcode), log into our system, update the files based on certain criteria, then take information from the file and place it in another worksheet for inventory purposes.

what i'm asking is... is there a way i can have excel drop to the next row each time i scan in each file?

i've noticed the output of the scanner is formatted like this: +000000

i've tried using the sendkeys method with the plus sign, but it always moves down THEN enters in the numbers. i'm not sure if there is a way with the Len function... or some variation of that.

i'm also thinking if i could maybe find the .dll for the scanner, maybe i could set up a reference to it, and have it do something like "afterbarcodescan.activecell.offset(1,0).activate".

Scan Worksheets In Reverse Order?

Mar 24, 2007

I have some code that scans each worksheet in a workbook for sheetnames beginning with 'Model'... if the worksheet name matches, it prints only the used pages on that sheet (see code below).

Dim Ws As Worksheet
For Each Ws In Worksheets
If Left(Ws.Name, 5) = "Model" Then
If Ws.Range("A46").Value = "Page 1-1" Then
Ws.PrintOut From:=1, To:=1
ElseIf Ws.Range("A46").Value = "Page 1-2" Then
Ws.PrintOut From:=1, To:=2
End If
End If
Next Ws

This code works... but I would like it to scan the workbook in reverse order...
ie. print from the last matching worksheet first.

Scan Multiple Bar Codes To One Excel File

Nov 5, 2013

Bar codes would contain a part number and a quantity.

822808 / 1604 pcs

1st question: I have scanned them into excel, but how does the next scan get into the next cell? It is currently putting multiple scans into the same cell.

2nd question: Can the data be broken up into separate columns? (e.g. Column A = "Part Number", column B = "QTY") I know about text to columns, but I think I have to get the format right?)

Scan Row For Text - Return Row And Column Header Info

Jun 2, 2013

I've been using a nice colorful spreadsheet to use to schedule rooms for an organization. Visually it has worked out well but now I need to automatically generate a 'report' using that data. So...

I want to scan each row of a table and create another table with that data transformed.
That is, scan each row and whenever I find any text in a cell I want to return that text (the room being used) as well as the row and column header information (who is starting to use that room and on what date). I've attached a jpeg to show the example.

Ideally, when I scan the row and find text to return the headers I'd like the row scan to also find when the fill color changes and return that column header, too as that that would be the date that the room stops being used.

Multiple Barcode Scanners: Prevent The Scan From Accepting Data Until The Macro Has Completed Its Cycle

Jan 26, 2007

I use a scanner that initiates a f2 command and trips my macro. I would like to use multiple scanners using a 8 port hub but I am having trouble with a scanner starting my macro and another scanner dumping data into my macro before the first one is finished. This is dropping scanned data into my macros. Is there a way to prevent the scan from accepting data until the macro has completed its cycle.

Open Files In Folder- Wait 30 Seconds Then Close The Files

Jul 5, 2007

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
Close #1

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
Close #2

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

Feb 8, 2009

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)?

Convert All CSV Files In A Folder To Excel Files?

Apr 8, 2014

I is it possible to convert all comma separated text files in a single folder in to excel files. But the requirement is to have 2 sheets in each new file. first to be the full file - with all columns, and in the second sheet to keep only colum A B D G H K L M O P R S T V W from the first sheet. The second sheet name must be the same as the first one but without the first "wlist_" in the name.

One more thing. The third column in the second is called "COUL". there are short letters for colors in french

can they be converted with the sort in English like it goes:

NO = B
BA = W
RG = R
SO = P
JA = Y
BE = L
GR = G
VI = V
OR = O

Here is a link to the both CSV and an example excel file with the end result. In this example i haven`t change the shorts for the colors. It takes me too much time with the find and replace function. And at the moment i`m really pushed from time.

Array Calculation From 2 Files Without Opening Files?

Apr 2, 2014

I have 50 files each with 1000 numbers in column A.

I need to compare every list with every other list and calculate the Pearson function.

I am ok with the vb code to compare every file with everyother.

I can do this by opening each file then closing but it takes too long.

Each of the 50 csv file names is in my destination workbook

I would like to define an array using the file name, then extract 2 lists without opening the files then perform the pearson function and place the value in the destination workbook. (The pearson function just measures the strength of correlation between 2 sets of numbers)

Convert Multiple Files To Text Files

Sep 26, 2007

I have about 100 Excel files in one folder that need to be saved as text files. They can keep the same name, but simply need to be converted to text files. I'd like to use VBA for this and I can't find examples that do exactly that...or ones that my limited knowledge can handle.

Excel files exist in C:Source and ALL of them should be saved as text files in C:Destination. Maybe there is an easier way, but I thought for sure there was a routine I could use.

Search CSV Files For Word & Make .xls Files Of Them

Jan 23, 2008

I have 22 CSV files. I want to search each of those files for a specific text string (ie: "profile" or "description"). When the macro finds the word in any one of the CSV files I want it to copy that complete csv worksheet and paste it into an excel xls file.

how I can go about doing this. Not also that while vlookup is possible, its very time consuming if i have to do this 50 times over and each time the csv files have different file names. that is why i want to search within a file (each file has its own unique identifying text string)
