Transfering Files From Lots Of Files To One Single Exel Master File.
Jun 26, 2009
Need a way to update a single master file. What happens right now is that the cost manager sends out one file to a lot of different project heads and then on having them return back to him he basically has to individually add in all the data. What i am trying to do is that he somehow carries on sending out the data as there are a lottt of projects and then on returning them they automatically update.
I'm a relatively competent VBA user to a macro recorder and basic editing of custom code level but fall short with writing custom code and don't have much used or proven code I can copy from.
Problem: I'd like to automate a process whereby consolidating certain information within many data files (possibly up to 500) into a single tab within a master file.
At the moment there are only a few data files which are manually consolidated by way of manual links but going forward it will increase significantly, hence the need to automate.
I need to consolidate the following 5 cells from each data file A1, A2, A5, A7, A8 (vertical) into a single row within the master file across 5 columns (horizontal), i.e. each data file will populate 1 row in the master file, one below the other. If there are 500 data files there will be 500 rows of data in the master file.
The data files will be saved in a central location on our server and the master file will sit outside this folder, possibly in a subfolder.
Something which would be handy is a link in the master file to each data file, i.e. if I click on a data row in the master file it would jump to the source data file.
I have about 100 csv files of the same format that I would like to append into a single master file. Order is not important for appending (I can do a column sort later) I can do copying and pasting, but this will take a long time especially because I will creating more master files from completely different CSVs in the future. Is there a faster way to append CSV files?
My project requires working with 3 different files, in my example here: Delivery Status, Warehouse, and Clients. Delivery Status is the master file where the information is gathered at first. Then when the product arrives, from the column "AI" I choose the Destination which it could be a warehouse or client. So far the code that I have can paste the information in different sheets within the File Warehouse, but can not make the difference between the File warehouse and the file Clients.
In the Delivery Status file I can choose from the Column AI whether the destination is a warehouse or a client and I need Excel to paste the information in the proper file. Have in mind that I have a lot of sheets in both files. I am attaching an example files with the code.
I have six files that are formatted the same(fld1-1.xlsx, fld1-2.xlsx...). Each file contains an I.D. number (random 25 digit number) in column A and a note (1-9) in column B. The only thing that changes between files is the note column. I want to pull from these six files into a master file. When all six files are combined the note column in the master file is complete, there are no duplicates. Because a blank vlookup returns a zero, could I use an IF formula. Something like IF VLOOKUP FROM data01(ISNUMBER(0), then vlookup in file data02. IF VLOOKUP FROM data02(ISNUMBER(0), then vlookup in file data03.
I have many folders (around 500) - each of them contains a excel file (the excel files have all the same name), ideally I would like to be able to run a macro from a master excel file that would allow me to add a sheet which I would create in the master excel file and add it to all of the excel files that are in the folders. So far I have used the code from the link: [URL]
VB: Sub CopyWorkbook() Dim sh As Worksheet, wb As workbook Set wb = workbooks("1.xlsx")
but when I change it from 2.xlsx to 1.xslx in the code it works just fine, copying the sheets from the file to itself.
How do I write a vb macro that copies everything from multiple files, including sheets within files, and puts them into one master file. Here's what I have so far. I used a script from gnaga that worked great but it didn't copy seperate sheets. If you can help me out, I would greatly appreciate it.
Sub MergeSheets() Dim SrcBook As Workbook Dim fso As Object, f As Object, ff As Object, f1 As Object
Application.ScreenUpdating = False Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set f = fso.Getfolder("C:Temp") Set ff = f.Files
Lots of XLS files in a directory (C: emp). Each book has only a sheet1 with the data.
I have another workbook that i need to use to overwrite certain values in one column from each book.
The workbook I have has a column A and B, ID and value.
In each file inside the directory, A3 to last row used in A had each ID. If the id matches to an id in the workbook with the new values, I want to take the value from B in the override table and put it in C in the file. Look at each ID in each file against each ID in the override, replace and close.
I am trying to make my macro more dynamic for a spreadsheet I am working on. I have this code which splits out worksheets (using the specific names of the worksheets-not dynamic) from a main workbook into template workbooks (which are basically just an empty workbook because I didn't know how else to do it) and then saves them using the paths below. I would like to make this more dynamic by splitting the different worksheets into new workbooks based on a key column in the hierarchy worksheet.
Basically I have a list of accounts in column B with the file name they should be exported to in column A. There are about 30 accounts being split into 6 different region files. Also note that the same account might be listed multiple times in column A (needed to add multiple numbers for other lookup formulas in the worksheets) but that account worksheet will still only be going to one of the six region files and not to multiple regions. After these are copied to an individual file I would like to save it to a location on my computer. All files will go to this location.
VB: Sub Create_Subfiles()
Dim FDMName As String Dim FBName As String Dim DIYName As String Dim WMName As String
I have approx 11 files in one folder and one master file with same format. 11 files are split user wise and user inuputting the remarks against the invoice in coloum Y and Z in their respective files. I want macro/forumul to collect all the remarks coloum from all users to master files against the respective invoice no.
I have a macro that transfers (copy/paste) information from one master file to several other individual files. The macro works, but I would like to enhance it by have it spit out errors in the process as follows: if cell A42 on file VP1.xls is not equal to Cell C35 on file Masterfile.xls then make cell E2 ERROR and fomat E2 bold-red, otherwise do nothing. The macro should continue regardless, I just want it to spot errors. I think this is pretty simple is just a matter of inserting an IF formula in the macro which is something i don't know how to do yet.
I have the following macro that imports data from several input files and rearranges it in a master file.I want to change it so that I can use it in each of the input files. Therefore, it should look in the input file for Spreadsheet "XYZ" and rearrange it in Spreadsheet "Data".
I am trying to copy the following files to a single folder; I have 200 excel files each in individual folders and each of these excel files is named like this; order_a1.xls, order_a2.xls up to 200. Each order_-.xls is in an individual folder. This is because each member of staff has a folder called orders with their own copy of order_a..xls IN IT. oNLY ONE FILE PER FOLDER. These folders are on a server called F.
MP1 CT CTfile1.csv CTfile2.csv CV CVfile1.csv CVfile2.csv FT FTfile1.csv FTfile2.csv
...etc - it keeps on going for more subfolders.
- Every subfolder has 2 different .csv files.
- Every file has the same structure. Relevant info: . column B - time string . column C - value
- The files are automatically genarated and report lots of single events (evaluated in Column C) that occurr in a specific time (dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss specified in Column B)
- All files have the same number of lines.
- Line 2 in fileX refers to the same time as Line 2 in fileY; the same for all lines.
What I need is a Macro in a file "Master.xls" placed in folder MP1 to automatically:
1. open each file in the subfolders 2. copy the time string (column B) for A2 down - only needed for the first file 3. copy the relevant info (column C) - in every file 4. close all files
Result: I have a "Master" file with the relevant info of all the others, preceeded by a time string from where I can work (pivot table, graph, etc.). The files can have from 5.000 to 30.000 lines, depending on the day.
I went to add the count to the inventory, it keeps returning an error where the date is pasted from one sheet to the other. I had originally tried to reference the value of the date directly, but because it was being passed to a merged cell, Excel didn't like it too much, so I had it copy and paste it. That worked at first, now it suddenly doesn't.
I'm working on a project that has a master workbook and multiple files that link to the master. The master workbook calculates values based off of a ton of information: account info, pricing info, quantity info, etc. It is a pretty massive excel file, but that is not where the problem arises.
The files that I am trying to link contain relevant information for specific accounts, including prices. The cells that contain product prices are linked to the master workbook. Example: Destination file, lets call this "Company A", Source file, lets call this "Master". In Company A's spreadsheet there is a column that contains pricing specific to that company. This pricing comes from the Master. Most of the pricing is in column C. What I have been doing is copying the relevant cell in the master and "Past Special, Paste Link" in Company A. I do this for every product in Company A's worksheet.
The goal of this is to automate pricing, so that when there are price changes or account changes, one would only have to update the master and all the separate account worksheets would populate with the correct prices. The method I've been using was working perfectly, until I had to edit the master file. I had to insert and delete a few rows from the master file. I work in excel quite often and link cells alot, so I figured that the linked cells would update to the new format, but they aren't. Ex. If a cell in Company A's worksheet is referencing F46 in the master and I delete row 44, I would like the cell to now reference F45, because that is the cell with the correct information. But instead Company A's worksheet isn't adjusting for the deleted row and is still referencing F46.
The only solutions I have found for this issue are to either have all the linked files open when I am editing the master. But seeing as there are almost 25 files, that doesn't seem very practical. The other solution is to never insert or delete rows, just to add on to the end of the master spreadsheet.
I have written quite and extensive macro that takes data from many Excel files and creates a summary of them. The problem is that there needs to be no hidden columns in the master files or the summary prints misinformation. I am looking for a way to keep people from hiding any columns (and rows if possible) unless they have a password. The problem is that many people have to get into the masters to update data, so I can't just put a password on the files and be done with it.
The Excel files all start with Availability. After Availability is the date the file was created, followed by .xlsx So example, Availability041012.xlsx
The file has multiple worksheets, but work sheet names are the same in each file. I need data from the "Car Summary By Product Line"
The data from each sheet that I would like to get from each sheet starts in A4 through I4. There are forumlas in several of the cells so would need to be a Paste Special Values type copy.
So code/macro would do this:
Copy row A4:I4 from File Availability041012.xlsx, Worksheet "Car Summary By Product Line" to a row in the Master file
Then repeat for the next file Availability041212.xlsx (this data isn't typically generated on weekends so won't be a consistent date + 1) copied to the next row down on the Master file. This would allow me to chart data for car counts from day to day. It would be really cool to have the file date in Column J so I could chart by date and show a trend, but I know beggers can't be choosers.
I have roughly 200 days with multipule product lines so copying and pasting each one wouldn't be feesible.
I have a file which contains a list of all employees and the extra vacation time they have purchased by manager. I need to create a separate workbook for each manager saved as whatever is in the Manager Field, in a folder that I specify. I would like to have a VBA macro that does this.
No cells contain formulas, but I do need the formatting to be the same.
I have attached a small sample of the file that needs to be split. Since there are three managers in this file there should be three workbooks created.
I have the following macro that is linked to a button.
There is also a function that is called to check to see if the file is already open.
These macros & functions work properly.
Basically, the Case statements check the extension of the file to be opened and then calls the correct macro to open that particular file.
I have shown the macro that is called by the Case statement that has the extension .xls . . . Excel
I want to keep these Case statements as I always want Excel files opened in new instances of Excel.
What I need is when the existing case statements do not find an extension that is listed, I want code added to this macro that can open any type of file, such as files with other types of extensions or without extensions.
My son suggested that I should try to get a macro that could open the file using the RUN command found under the Start Button. Sounds good to me.
I receive a daily bath of 6 files (for now lets calls them 1.csv, 2.csv 3.csv etc...)
I have to manually open these select all the data and then paste them into a single worksheet in a different xls file (called master.xls).
I am trying to figure out some vba that will open each .csv file, copy the data and append to the end of worksheet 1 in master.xls. Ideally i would also like it to paste the name of the .csv it has copied the data to in column A of master.xls
Also, the .csv files will not always contain data, occasionally some will be blank.
Both .csv and master.xls will be stored in the same folder.
