Macro To Rename Files In A Folder

Jun 16, 2014

Macro to rename files

I have following problem, discribed also in the link above.

I need a vba code to

- choose a folder instead of a file
- find all the files in the chosen folder with name that starts with "sz" and end with "_d"
- rename those files by replacing the first 5 numbers that follow sz with 5 different numbers that the user can choose e.g. through a user form.

I imagine the user to open the excel file, click on a form thats linked to a macro. The macro will call a userform and ask the user to choose the folder and type in a textbox the 5 new numbers.

I need the code that will be pasted behind the "OK" button in the userform.

Is this possible with vba?

Here a code i found in the link mentioned above, that i have applied and works - but needs to be modified to meet my needs:
Sub GetImportFileName()

Dim Filt As String
Dim FilterIndex As Integer
Dim Title As String
Dim FileName As Variant
Dim newname As String

[Code].....

Rename Multiple Files In A Folder Macro

Jun 11, 2009

I have 400ish departmental budget files in a folder that I need to upload to a Sharepoint doc library. The files in the folder will have to exactly match the files we already have set up in sharepoint in order to upload them to the sharepoint site. As it stands now there is only one consistency between the sharepoint files and the budget files in the folder, which is the department number (which every file in both begins with).

I'm thinking some sort of macro will let me insert a sheet into each of the files in the budget folder, which would have a formula that pulls the department number from a certain sheet in the file, and produce the file name I want into a certain cell. Then I would like a macro that goes into each file and renames it based on that cell. I'd like to know if this is possible and if there may be a better way to do it.

Excel 2010 :: Loop Through To Check For All Filenames In Folder And If Then?

Dec 22, 2013

getting a function working within Excel 2010. What I'm trying to do is to first look in a specific directory and loop through each foldername then check to see if the foldername exists in column B of my worksheet. If the foldername exists then check Column E of the same row for a specific value ("assigned") and then make sure column F of the same row has no picture inside the cell. If those three things exist (column B foldername and column E "assigned" and no picture in column F), then add a picture to column F of the same row as the foldername with a hyperlink to a filename of "notes.one" in that specific folder. Then just loop through each foldername in the specific directory until all foldernames have been checked.

Get Data From Changing Filenames & Move Files To Another Folder

Nov 22, 2007

I am trying to develop an excel macro to accomplish the following:

-I have a master workbook for collecting data
-One folder will be used to dump excel files into; I don't know the filenames (other than "*.xls"), but I do know from which cells I will need to retreive data (they will be the same for all files)

1. I need to retrieve data from these excel files
2. After getting data from a file, it is then moved to another folder
3. Next the retreive data, then move is performed on the next excel file until there are none left in C:IN

Upon searching this forum, I found a way to open each of these files one by one (without having to know the filenames): Using a script to open unspecified file name

- For me, the obstacle seems to be not knowing how to do what I need to without knowing the filenames

- Again, the issue - retrieve data from these files, then rename/move these files

Loop Through All Files Rename And Save In Another Folder

Feb 27, 2013

I have excel files in a folder, I need a macro to loop through all files, rename them and save them in another folder. the file's name is available in a cell in each file, I am able to get the file name as text (I had to dig a little to get the text as it was between ""). Well I am stuck right now because the macro is doing what it's supposed to do for one excel file only and does not continue with the rest of the available files for a reason.

VB:
Sub RenameAllFiles()
Dim Bk As Variant
Dim n As Integer
Dim NewName As String

Excel 2010 :: Rename Files In Multiple Folders And Copy To New Folder

Sep 22, 2013

For the last year I have been downloading cash register X1 and Z1 files onto an SD card. Each night's files (X1 & Z1) are stored in a new folder with the naming convention "RP + [DATE]", (EX: RP120910, [YYMMDD]). I have 265 folders! I need to go through each folder, select the Z1 file (I don't care about the X1, X2 or Z2 files) and rename each with the following naming convention: "Z1 + folder_name + .xls". For Example: Folder RP120910 contains the Z1 file named "Z1_T1729.ECR". After renaming, the file should be "Z1RP120910.xls". As the VBA code loops through each subfolder, selecting and renaming the Z1 files, I would like the new files to be placed into a new folder named "Z1Files". Note: All subfolders are currently in a directory named "RegisterFiles". I am using Excel 2010.

Save A File As Multiple Filenames By Single Macro?

Aug 15, 2006

The reports I build work from a basic template with 10 or so separate, slightly different versions. In order to make them I currently update the data in the template and then click on "File>Save As..." ten times, renaming the file as appropriate.

Example:

Overall Report for yyyy/mm/dd
Partner A report for yyyy/mm/dd
Partner B report for yyyy/mm/dd
ad nauseum..

Is there an easy macro that could save and rename my file multiple times? It would need to accept manual input for the date. Preferably it would be something that I could easily tweak to change the filenames and number of reports saved as this is most of what I do.

Macro For Name Generation From Product To Product With Sizes And Filenames

Jan 30, 2014

I would like to have a Macro to go from the first tab called "Start" and end up with the second tab "End" automatically. BAsically I need to take the product on each line under Tab Start and reproduce it for sizes 35-41 always ending with "-(size)". Then this new Product with Size needs to be multiplied one below the other for as many times as I have pictures (number shown under column B of the tab Start). Next to this value in column B of tab End I'd like the same name listed again but with the number 1, then 2, then 3, etc. as needed and the extension .jpg.

Macro To Rename Tab With Range

Sep 10, 2009

From my research on trying to apply this function, I have peiced together several codes and am unable to get my end result. I want to add a worksheet and rename it with text formula on my main "Macro" sheet from cell D1. The name in cell D1 is a date that changes based on a formula. I can get the macro to add the worksheet but then it stops at renaming it:

Sub NewTab()
'
' NewTab Macro
' Macro recorded 9/10/2009 by andrea_1
'

'
Dim wsNew As Worksheet

Set wsNew = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets.Add
ActiveSheet.Select
ActiveSheet.Name = Worksheets(Macro).Range("D1").Value

Macro To Rename Sheet Tab

Aug 24, 2012

I run a report each month which renames the tab name called ex. "xxxxx Report 8". The 8 meaning for the month of August. I have created a macro to rename the tab, but each month when i generate the report the tab name change, hence i would have to change my macro again to reflect the tab name. What formula could i use in VBA to change the name of tab so i would not have to change my macro each month?

I currently use as shown below, which does not work since the number changes each month when i generate the report):

Sheets("xxxxx Report 8").Select
Sheets("xxxxx Report 8").Name = "Monthly Report"

NewName = "Client" & Sheets.Count - 2
ActiveSheet.Name = NewName
End Sub

How To Create Macro To Add New Worksheet And Rename It

Oct 3, 2012

I need to have many users press a button within the excel sheet that duplicates the form from the current page, opening a new tab (copying the form) that also prompts to input a specific name e.g. "Enter date and day or night shift" to name the tab itself.

I have just worked out how to put a Command Button in and used the above code to create the new page assigning the code to it.

I need the "my sheet" to be prompted and customisable.

Macro To SaveAs And Rename A File

Oct 15, 2009

I think my code is close but I keep getting an error "Run-time error '1004': Application-defined or object-defined error"

I am trying to rename the active workbook by appending yesterday's date onto the filename, using the Save As.

I might be going about this all wrong anyway. My user needs the macro to save, rename, and close the renamed copy of the workbook but to leave the original workbook open. I'm trying to do it in steps so I might be doing this the hard way. However, my code to Save As is below:

Sub SaveAsRename()

Dim CurrentPath As String
Dim CurrentFileName As String
Dim NewFileName As String
Dim Today As Date

Today = Int(Range("A3") - 1) 'Cell A3 contains the =Today() formula
CurrentPath = ThisWorkbook.Path
CurrentFileName = "QU Backhaul Dispatch "
NewFileName = CurrentFileName & Today & ".xlsm"

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=CurrentPath & "" & NewFileName

End Sub

My Locals window has all of the correct values right up to the ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs which is where it fails.

Macro - Using Sheet Template Need It To Auto-Rename

Aug 2, 2008

*Inserts an existing worksheet template and places it at the end (or after all) the existing worksheets.

What I would like the macro to also do is:

*Automatically rename the inserted worksheet (via my worksheet template) in sequence to the existing worksheets

Example: So let's say I have 3 existing worksheets titled Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3 (that's basically the default naming Excel uses). But would when I insert a new worksheet (via my worksheet template) it is shown as Sheet. And if I insert another one, it would be Sheet (2). So basically it is showing as such:

Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3, Sheet, Sheet (2)

What I would like the macro to do is automatically rename those last 2 worksheets (and any subsequent worksheets thereafter) in sequential order. Basically displaying it as such:

Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3, Sheet4, Sheet5...(and so on and so forth)

Create Macro To Rename Worksheets In Other Folders

Dec 23, 2008

I have created an appointment schedule spreadsheet. Once I get the spreadsheet running smoothly, I would like to create a worksheet for every day of the year that we are open.

I have decided to have one main folder with 26 subfolders in it. In each of those 26 subfolders, there will be one workbook with 12 worksheets in it. That will be two weeks worth of appointments as we are open Mon-Sat. Of course I want to name the worksheet tabs at the bottom of the workbook according to the appropriate calendar date. Then there is also a cell at the top of each page that also has the date, the same as the date on the tab. Just wondering if there is a simple way to create a macro to rename all these worksheet tabs, or if I have to physically open up each workbook, and rename all the worksheet tabs according to the calendar date. Then once the worksheet tab is named, can you make it automatically put the same date into Cell A1?
