I need to back up files, which may be excel or MSword, by copying them from different directories, say C: to the backup directory, say X:. any vba to backup the files? I expect the vba can copy all file listed in column A.
E.g. C: est1File1.xls or C: est2File2.doc, and then pasted to the directory in column B. e.g. X:BackupFolder1 or X:BackupFolder2.
I have managed to get this far - I have put together a macro (from different threads on this site) that opens closed workbooks, copies data in one of the sheets (same sheet in each of 28 books), and pastes the data it into a master book sheet, each paste starting below the last. So that bit is working. The first bit of help I need is a line of code that will make the macro loop through a number of sub folders in a main folder. My code at the moment works as long as I specify a path that ends with the name of one subfolder, and it only loops through this subfolder. I would like the path to end at the folder that holds all the subfolders ('Workbooks' in the path below), and then add some code that tells it to apply the macro to all subfolders in this folder, so it loops through them all.
The second issue is that after the macro goes to the closed book(s), copies the data in there and pastes it into the master sheet (into columns E:FG), I then need it to go back to the workbook it just copied from, go the same sheet, to three specific cells on that sheet (FH1:FH3), copy the content, go back to the master sheet, and now repeatedly paste the content (values only and transposed) of these three cells into three cells (in columns B:D, with row number being dependent on what rows the first lot of data was copied into) next to every row it just previously pasted in for me. When it loops to the next workbook, it needs to do the same, and the three cells will have different content than the ones in the previous workbook paste.
I dont know how to define the range it needs to paste into the second time. I tried using the definition I used for the first paste (MCDrow), to tell it that it is the same rows, just different columns, but this is not working.
Here is what I have so far, which does the first part of what I need, except for needing a way to have it loop through all subfolder in the 'Workbooks' folder (at the moment it lists Barwon South West as a subfolder in that path, but I actually have multiple subfolders, not all called Barwon South (all different names) that it needs to loop through and do both the first and the second paste for. I have taken out the code I was trying to use to do the second paste, as this was not working and the code is pretty messy as it is (I sort of bumble along, being so new, and I know the code is not very clean or efficient!).
Can someone help me put in the few lines I need to loop through all my subfolders (if you give me an example I can probably extrapolate), but to get you started, three of the subfolders are Barwon South West, Eastern Region and Gippsland. And can someone help me put in the code that will do the second paste for each workbook?
Application. ScreenUpdating = True Dim MCDrow As Long 'Dim SubFolders As String MCDrow = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Client Data").Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row
Fpath = "Q:Clinical ServicesCS Statewide DatabaseWorkbooksBarwon South West" ' change to your directory 'SubFolders = True Fname = Dir(Fpath & "*.xls") Do While Fname <> ""
how to traverse all files in SharePoint folders using Excel VBA and have not come across an answer I could use because, by configuration design, I cannot map a SharePoint URL to a drive letter.
Here it is:
Sub SPDir() Dim wb As Workbook Dim dummyFile As String ' ' The file specified by dummyFile must reside in SharePoint in order to use SharedWorkspace ' The way the code is set up, the path and filename in dummyFile should NOT substitute %20 instead of spaces ' There is logic later to ignore dummyFile on output ' Substitute your own dummy file name below
I'm looking to create a macro that does the following:
- Loops through a folder structure - Opens a specific subfolder within each folder based on name (i.e. "*Financials*") - Opens a specific file within that subfolder "*Financials*" based on both most recently modified a naming criteria (i.e. "*Model*") - Performs an action on that file (a macro created elsewhere that I assume I can call here) - Closes that file, and moves on to the next file matching the criteria above
As a self-diagnosed VBA novice, I'm having trouble adapting code found in various forums for my specific project.
I've found examples that address aspects of my desired macro or do similar things, but I can't figure out how to put them together.
Open most recent file:
Loop through folders and subfolders and print all files:
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.
how I can loop through folders to select files starting with a certain word and copy all of them to a different folder and rename them. The folder structure is given below
Company 1(parent folder) North South East(sub folder) West(sub folder) Jan Feb Mar.... Dec Jan Feb Mar.... Dec Jan Feb Mar.... Dec Jan Feb Mar.... Dec
In the above structure, the files are present inside each folders Jan, feb...Dec under the regions North, South East n west. note that I have to select files starting with "Sales" and copy them into a new folder(say results) and rename copied files as Sales1.xls, Sales2.xls etc. (Files are not present in the folder company1, north, south, east and east.)
I am attempting to create a macro that will create a new folder on the network drive Arie:quotes that will create the new folder and save the the file in the new folder. I need the name of the file and folder to be set to the master (worksheet) cell "B3". and then if possible have it be conditional that if cell "B40" on the same master (worksheet) has a value to have the value added at the end of the filename via hyphen. This workbook has numerous worksheets in it approx 15 worksheets. I am not sure if this is relevant.
As an brief example.
Cell "B3" on the master(worksheet) contains a job name I-40 bridge So initially I would like the Folder name and file name to be I-40 Bridge
However once the Cell "B40" has been filled in with the value 54213 then I would like the file to renamed to I-40 Bridge-54213 and saved within the same folder.
I am currently working with Excel 2007 Pro edition on windows 8. I
I have found several other macro's that work with an auto save but i am unsure of how to change the directory to the network drive and show the correct file paths. This is the example of the macro I am currently working with.
Public Sub SaveAsA1() ThisFile = Range("B3").ValueMkDir "C:NewFolder"ChDir "C:NewFolder"ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=ThisFileEnd Sub
I've created a Excel workbook with VBA code to synchronize an Access database between a laptop and a server. One of the fields in the database is a shortcut to a jpg for each record. (The Access stuff is not too important here)
Now I'd like to add the ability synchronize the photos between the laptop and the server; so people who use the server can view the photos added by the laptop and vice versa.
Code: For each [JPG] in [LaptopFolder] If not [JPG] exists in [ServerFolder] then filecopy [LaptopFolder][JPG], [ServerFolder][JPG] end if next [JPG]
I have a series of worksheets (different workbooks) that have the same exact column widths and line depths. On screen the width and depth is identical but when printed, one takes up less width and more depth and the other vice-versa. Most (over 100) are just fine but every once in a while another is found that is distorted in print preview and printing and there seems to be nothing I can do to correct the problem. One difficult solution is to take the content from the "wrong" worksheet, do a save as on a "right" worksheet and drop the content in there.
Office and Excel 2013Windows 8Saving as different versions (xls instead of xlsx) makes no difference.Same printerSame monitorsAll worksheets are set to 17 pixels for both columns and rows (looks like graph paper)After setting up print area and viewing, the light gray dashed lines that show page breaks are different! The majority ("right") sheets have four fewer columns and four more rows than do the "wrong" worksheets.
I have links between Excel files and Word files. I use these files for multiple projects. When I copy them and paste them to a new folder the new files would be linked together. For some reason this has stopped. Now when I copy, the Word file has links to the original document, not to the copied document.
I am using the code below to list all files within a specific folder however I need to know about ALL the files within the underlying sub folders (of which there are many).
I have tried wildcards when declaring the folder but it does not work.
Dim fsoObj As Object 'Scripting.FileSystemObject Dim fsoMapp As Object 'Scripting.Folder Dim fsoFil As Object 'Scripting.File Dim sFolder As String Dim i As Long Dim filtype As String sFolder = "V:T-ASSETAsset ScotlandNetwork Capacity Section1 Business Plan"
Set fsoObj = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
'Set fsoObj = New Scripting.FileSystemObject........................
I have this code that generates excel pages as pdf files, but I can't get it to save it in its individual folders. For example, I have the sheet name as Brian Lin, I want to save the pdf into the folder called Brian Lin, then if I have the sheet name as Lilly Tran, the pdf should save into the folder called Lilly Tran. Here's my code. The code is one step short of what I want it to do, it saves in the folder right before the name folders.
Sub Macro1() Dim wsh As Worksheet, vWshs Dim sFolderName As String, set_Path As String, name As String, hwas As String, sname As String, swsname As String vWshs = Array("Rates", "Inputs") set_Path = "C:UsersJonathanDesktopFaFundInvoices" & hwas & ""
I have a folder that has a bunch of other folders in it, each containing many files. Is there an easy way to get a file directory into excel, so that I now would have a spreadsheet that tells me what all the folders are and what files are in each one?
short example: main folder = mystuff subfolder1 = my pix, contains pic1 and pic2 subfolder2 = otherstuff, contains otherstuff1 and otherstuff2
Can excel find these things and give me a list indicating that the 'mystuff' folder contains these two folders, and also list the two files under each folder?
I have my main directory C:Perinatal Within that directory I have folders that contain results for each medical conditions (see attachments)
Within each subdirectory are 6 workbooks with (untidy) data results, all the same format just different numbers for each analysis. I want my MAIN_MACRO to loop through every single .xls file in the C:Perinatal, cleaning up the data of all files, and then saving.
I can use the following code to cycle through each folder one at a time, however, I'd like to loop through every subdirectory of
C:Perinatal instead to speed up the process, rather than having to change the path for each subfolder (e.g. C:PerinatalCANCERALL). Is this possible?
If this isn't possible how can I create a 'MyPaths' list and loop through all those directories.
I need to move all the "Excel" files which are available in Folder and also the Subfolders from this location.
I need all the Excel files.
I found a code which is able to move only from Folder but not from the Subfolder.
Sub Move_Certain_Files_To_New_Folder() 'This example move all Excel files from FromPath to ToPath. 'Note: It will create the folder ToPath for you with a date-time stamp Dim FSO As Object Dim FromPath As String Dim ToPath As String Dim FileExt As String Dim FNames As String
each folder is named by date, for example a folder name may be 04-01-2008. Within each folder there is one xls file named daily.xls. (this never changes) In date order from the folder name, I need to open each daily.xls run my code, then close daily.xls and then open the next one etc until there are no more.
I need to create a macro that will allow the user to create a directory based on a template directory, with all directory paths/ names stored in workbook cells:
1) Create a new directory (name/path specified in workbook) 2) Go to a template directory & copy the entire directory, subdirectories & all files 3) Paste them into the new directory 4) Save a copy of the workbook into the specified location from (3)
Example: X:Templates -copy all to- X:Projects(Value specified in workbook cell)
I am trying to specify all files and folders in a directory and the only help I found was the following thread: Create Index Of Files In Folder That works really well but, what I need is to specify all the folders and all the files under a directory, does any of you awsome hacks have an idea of how I can enhance the macro if the thread posted above?
I have written a procedure that renames excel files within a folder based on certain words being in the title. It works for the files in the first lot of subfolders but I am trying to work out how to get it to rename all files in all subfolders regardless of the level.
I've seen similar things done using recursive subs but I have been trying to convert some of the sample codes I've found online to fit my situation and am not having much luck.
how to manipulate my code into something like a recursive procedure or anything else that will do what I want.
