I have code that links my existing workbook to a closed workbook. It works as planned but it goes to far. In my first workbook, the one containing the code, I may have up to 30 worksheets. If I am on Sheet5 I may need to run the vba code to update cells X:X only on Sheet5 but instead it updates cells X:X on all Sheets in the workbook. How can I keep this from happening?
I have asked this on another forum but it seems to be a difficult thing, perhaps impossible thing to keep from happening.
For worksheets 3 though to worksheet 9 and only columns D, E, F, G, H , I and J, and only rows 4 through to 35 auto update from a source workbook
Note 1: - as you will see in Wookbook A in the attached demo test zip file that row range 4 to 35 varies on each worksheet as the number of towns columns varies on each worksheet. So on one worksheet it might be row 4 to row 12 requiring update whereas on another worksheet it could be row 4 to up to row 35.
Note2: –the source workbook is a closed /non active workbook on another server in my network –path is X/sourcefiles/weeklydate/countfile.xls. In the source workbook the source is sheet 1.
Only update when there is a match of string of the place location name which are ALL listed in column C of the source worksheet –matched to that of string place location names in workbook A in their respective worksheets 3 through to worksheet 9. Then when there is a match – copy the content of the cells that correspond to the place location names in the source workbook (countfile.xls) from the columns D, E, F, G, H, I, and J.
Note 3. The way in which the source countfile works is that each week it will be updated with values/figures starting with column D in week 1 and column E in week 2 and column F in the third week and so on…..In the first week only column D will have values/ figures and the other columns will be empty – and second week only columns D and E will have values/figures – to make the code easy it would be OK to copy across the other columns when they are empty – thus leaving the other columns in workbookA also empty. So in week two when workbook A is opened and is updated from the source file with values/figures for workbook A’s columns D and E of worksheets 3 through to 9 the other columns F, G H, I and J on those worksheets would have only be empty cells or just not updated at all –as the source file at that time would have had only two weeks of figures entered.
Also copy across the column headings in row 4 for columns D, E, F, G, H, I , and J as those headings may change as they are dates.
The final bit that is important part of this is that as worksheet A is updated the formula in column K it will need to auto update as well as it is the initial figures in column D minus the figures in the most recent column updated – so if column G is updated today the formula needs to be =D5 – G5 and =D6-G6 and so on whereas when updated next week the formula would need to change to =D5 – H5 and =C6-H6 and so on.
I am having a workbook (say a.xlsm) which has value entry fields and some values are given to another workbook (say b.xlsm) which has some sort of calculations and the result is projected back to the book a. most of the time book b will be closed. I am using Excel 2010.
I opened and saw that the result which is calculated and projected from workbook b is not getting updated. I opened the workbook b and saw that the values I have entered in a has not been updated in b. note that I am opening one book at a time and I do click on update links when I am asked.
I've been using the following code to bring in individual cell values from one closed workbook to an active one. I would like to modify this is possible to bring in multiple cells at once and also pull them into a different worksheet in the active workbook. Basically, my command button is on Sheet1 but I'd like the data to pull into a cell on Sheet2.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() With Range("Q9") .Formula = "='C:Users[Workbook Name.xlsm]Worksheet Name'! N27" .Value = .Value End With
I have some vba that opens a closed workbook, copies data from a named range and then pastes it to the active workbook.
However, what is happening is that the closed workbook is opened and only part of the data is pasted. What I would prefer to happen is this:
Open the closed workbook-->copy the named range-->paste(append) to next empty cell in column B.
Heres the code that I have got.
Sub Workbook_test()Dim wb As Workbook Application.ScreenUpdating = False ' turn off the screen updating Set wb = Workbooks.Open("G:WAREHOUSEPlanningSmartNew Training Plan raining plan.xls", True, True)
Is there code that will take certain data from one Excel sheet to another named file in a different place on the network? Example Copy cell aa47 from "Recent Faxes.xls" that sits in "correspondence" folder. Then paste into cell B25 "Current Documentation.xls" in the "Sales Contacts" folder
I am trying to use this code to pull data from a closed workbook. The code will be in workbook Book1 and I will be pulling information from closed workbook Book3. I need to pull data from cells A1:A4 from Book3 and place it into Book1 on Sheet2 in cells A1:A4. I receive an "Subscript out of range error" on this line of code
I'm trying to retrieve data from a workbook that is currently closed. The formula below works only if the workbook containing the data is open. Is there a way to use the following formula to retrieve the data from a closed workbook?
I have created a excel program with two workbook. Workbook1 holds all the userform to add data Workbook2 is the database Basically I store all data to WorkBook2 through userforms in WorkBook1. So far to add data to database(WorkBook2) I open the workBook2 along with WorkBook1 and close it when I close the WorkBook1. and working perfectly.
Is there any way to put data into WorkBook2 without opening it. Application.Screenupdating is not not my choice.
I am looking for vba code to copy data from closed workbook. I searched below VBA code on google , but it copies all row from closed workbook. I need small modification in it. I want to copy only I,A,B,C,N,O,R,P,Q column from closed workbook to A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I column of active workbook respectively.
i get an excel file with dynamic data everyday. is there away i can use a macro on this file to store this dynamic data to a specfic closed workbook and add the data onto the old data in that workbook?
I am using the following code to import data from a closed workbook;
Code: Dim SaveDriveDir As String, MyPath As String Dim FName As Variant SaveDriveDir = CurDir MyPath = Application.DefaultFilePath 'or use "C:Data"
I'd like to modify it slightly so that it only imports data according to the following criteria;
The used range from A3 onwards but only if the row in column G shows 'Never' or the figure is 30 or more. If column G passes, (so neither of the criteria apply), then column J is checked for the same criteria and if so imported.
I want to add a button to my excel workbook that when pressed allows the user to browse to an excel file, once selected, the macro then looks for a specific sheet with a specific name and then copies some data (not entire sheet) into a sheet in the doc where the button was pressed.
I have 7 workbooks I would like to copy data from. The data in question is a sheet called "Accident Book" in each of the 7 workbooks.
I know how to copy the data, but how do I reference these 7 closed workbooks ? They are all in the same directory, but these are other files in there that I dont need, so I dont just want to point to the directory.
I have this code from Nimrod but can't get it working.
Sub GetValuesFromAClosedWorkbook(fPath As String, fName As String, sName, cellRange As String) With ActiveSheet.Range("A65536").End(xlUp) .FormulaArray = "='" & "\Bls36dc10WorkH&S" & "[" & Central 2004.xls & "]" _ & "Accident Book" & "'!" & range("A6") .Value = .Value End With End Sub
I actually want to copy data from A6:N6 down to the last row entry, then paste this into the next available row in the activesheet. I need to do this from 7 different workbooks.
I'm currently facing problem with double for loop in the previous vba ,extracting data from closed book. however, it uses only one for loop to extract all data. I need to extract lots of data from the book and thats why i double looped it to extract more data. however, i can only get the first line of data i can't extract any more data from then on.
Sub RunCodeOnAllXLSFiles() Dim lCount As Long Dim wbResults As Workbook Dim wbCodeBook As Workbook Dim rCell As Range Dim lCount2 As Long
I found many examples on this forum of how one can pull in data from closed workbooks, or copy it and have it stored in the active sheet. So far so good, but I need a solution which would do the opposite - I need the macro to take a range of data form the active sheet store it in a closed workbook and save any changes in the target workbook without opening it.
I have 1 excel workbook open. It is in a common directory with several other excel workbooks which are closed. In the open workbook, I have created a vba macro that completes various tasks - only within the open workbook. I want to modify the macro in the open workbook such that it will specify data to be displayed in the closed workbooks. Then, when the closed workbooks are opened next, the data will reflect what the macro had specified.
Due to some cutbacks the company I work for has taken away the database system we used to use to record debts owed to us, so I'm building one in excel (no access or sql otherwise I'd use those). We have all the debt in seperate workbooks by financial period and I'm creating a new workbook that will upon entering of a specific financial period will pull information from the pertaining workbook and report on the information.
I have a Formula
=INDIRECT.EXT(CONCATENATE("'C:Documents and Settingshughel13My Documents[",Reports!$C$11,".xls]Sheet1'!R2:R138"))
Among others which pull other ranges
Which as I understand should work just fine on a closed workbook, however it only works when the target workbook is open. When the workbook is closed the formula only pulls the first value in the range.
On a related note the above formula and it's counterparts are autofilled down the page from 2 to 1000 as some of the workbooks have 1000 records to pull, however the ones that dont have that many, cause errors when the data is pulled, is there a way to make it so that if the cell it's pulling from is empty it doesn't pull from it or pulls a value of 0?
I am looking for VBA which will complete my below task.
copy data from active worksheet to closed workbook.Active sheet data should copy below old data of closed workbook.data contain in A to K column of active worksheet.clear copied dataIf I moved both file any folder or drive, path should change automatically. ( something like fpath = current workbook path clworkbook= fpath & closedwbk.xls).
I'm having concerning pulling data from a closed workbook by using a macro. I have tried Google to resolve the issue, but am only getting very basic results which do not apply to the situation I have (or, rather, I perhaps don't know how to edit this code in order to work in the way which I would like it to).
The above image is the main workbook, which I would like to insert the macro into. In cell A1 you can see that there is a filename location - this is the location of the closed secondary workbook which I would like to pull the data from. I would like the macro to take the location which is present in cell A1, copy cells A1:J5000 in the closed workbook, and then paste these into this workbook starting in A7 (i.e. A7:J5007). The reason that the filename location is present in A1 is due to the fact that this will be changing; however I would like the macro always to take the location which is shown in A1 (e.g. if A1 were to change from '... est00218_data.csv' to '... est00001_data.csv' then I would like the macro to take the data from the new location, test00001).
Workbook A contains data that feeds into Workbook B. Workbook B retrieves data from Workbook A (via a macro) and then puts data into cells in Workbook B, Workbook B process the information and does calculations etc... on the data from A. Now I want to transfer the results back to Workbook A in specific cells.
Example (just for information only and not actual problem): Workbook A, contains employee information, years in company, position etc... This is transferred to Workbook B (this portioin I have coded and tested). Workbook B calculates pay, benefits etc... Now I want to put the pay information back to Workbook A.
I amended the range with the code from the J.Walkenbach's book. However, the closed file "budget.xls" will be populated weekly with same columns but different number of rows. For example, if file budget.xls has data populated over 18 columns and 50 rows, the code will populate row 31 to 50 in the active workbook with "zero" values. Need the code will copy all the values in the closed file in Sheet1 over?
Private Function GetValue(path, file, sheet, ref) path = "d:files" file = "budget.xls" sheet = "Sheet1" ref = "A1:R30" Dim arg As String If Right(path, 1) <> "" Then path = path & "" If Dir(path & file) = "" Then GetValue = "File Not Found" Exit Function End If.......................
