VBA Access Common Cell In Many Different Sheets In An External Workbook

Oct 21, 2008

Using Microsoft Office Excel 2003 (11.8220.8221) SP3, I started with a sheet, Sheet7, that pulled the first non-blank error message found in a common cell (i.e., A7) in Sheet3.1, Sheet3.2, ... , Sheet3.15, Sheet3.16. All of these sheets resided in a single workbook, and worked correctly using the following VBA code snippet:

Update External Sheets Without Opening Workbook

May 2, 2009

I have 3 sheets: 1: master entry sheet that fills data in 5 different excel docs. Then there is another doc that aggregates data from the 5 and presents totals on the data. I am trying to get the end result without having to have 7 different excel files open, but when I enter into the master entry sheet, the data doesn't seem to be "pushed" up to the 5 different docs until each one is opened up. Obviously, the master aggregator is not updated since the 5 don't have the new data. When the files are all opened at the same time, the data flows perfectly, I'm just trying to find a way to avoid having to open the 5 docs in the middle of the process.

Value Of A Cell In An External And Variable Workbook

Mar 16, 2008

I need to create a formula or code which will return the value of cell d16 from an external and unopened workbook, where that external workbook's file name, directory and sheet names are provided within cells (able to be updated) of the current workbook. I have downloaded the add-in for INDIRECT.EXT but either being unfamiliar with this function or that I'm barking up the wrong tree all I'm getting is #REF!

And to add to my problem, I was hoping to use this formula / code within an excel table embedded in a word document.

Link To External Workbook From Cell Reference

Nov 24, 2011

I've got a field where I enter the current month, from this I derive a file path which is stored in A4.

ie: A1 = '01/11/2011' (UK Date format)

A4 = '\myserverdirectory20111111MyFile.xls'

What I'm trying to achieve is to then have a link in cell A6 that will link to the file in A4. I can specify my cell reference as this will never change, just the file path.

So, if I changed A1 to '01/12/2011' my A4 changes to '\myserverdirectory20111211MyFile.xls'

I'm trying to set A6 to something like ="&$A$A4&"!B1 to get the value of B1 on my referenced sheet.

Cell Data To Reference External Workbook

Apr 21, 2008

I am designing a spreadsheet at work, and need a little assitance. I can't find the answer I need online or here either. Here's the problem: I want to be able to enter data (A 5 digit job number, 80227 for example) into a cell, and then multiple other cells would auto fill with data from outside worksheets. The worksheets are in a seperate folder on my server and named under the same name as the project. (So if I entered 80227 as the data in A1, I would want A2, A3 and A4 to open spreadsheet 80227.xls on the server, locate the referenced cell/s, and insert the info from 80227 into them.)

I can easily reference the cells alone and have them input the data, but this is extremely time consuming since this spreadsheet has all the current jobs our company is working on. I currently am running a macro/VBA that automatically updates all linked spreadsheets without them having to be open, so that is not an issue.

External Workbook Link With Dynamic Cell Reference

Feb 24, 2014

I currently have a file that is linked to an external workbook that is referencing a certain cell from a certain tab. The below is what Column A & B look like right now. What I'm wanting to know is is there a way to have the formula in Column B automatically reference the name in Column A (which is the tab name in the external workbook) instead of having to manually change the formula when the value in Column A changes?

In other words, I want everything in the external reference formula to remain the same except have the person's name change dynamically...

Mary
='X:Anderson CorporationEmployees[Work Hours]Mary'!$F$42

Joe
='X:Anderson CorporationEmployees[Work Hours]Joe'!$F$42

Frank
='X:Anderson CorporationEmployees[Work Hours]Frank'!$F$42

Copy Different Sheets In Common Sheet

Jul 17, 2007

Recently a change my good old buddy Excel 2003 with 2007. I was happy when I understanad that the sheet has over 1 000 000 rows which is very suitable for me. However, I use a VBA code (which OZGRID done for me), but I can not use it with 2007. The reasons that the macro can't copy data over 65536 rows. I know that the problem is that macro but I don't know how to change it.
Here is the

Copy Data Not Common Between 2 Sheets

Jan 8, 2008

I am trying to write a VBA code to conditionally copy and paste a range of cells on sheet A into sheet B if the specified cell value is not found on sheet B. Here's an example

On sheet A, there are phone numbers in column M that I need to find in sheet B. The reference column in sheet B is already a named range ("Description") which I'm using to conditionally format several cells in sheet A to turn green when the phone number is not found on B. This is the formula I'm currently using to do this "=AND( COUNTIF(DESCRIPTION, $M2)=0, $R2>0)" ...Obviously I'm using the AND function to tell the format to only work if the cell value of R is greater than 0.

What I would like to do to something very similar to what I already have in place, only now I would like to have a macro search through column M and instead of highlighting the proper cells...I would like to copy the associated row data from columns B:N in sheet A and paste special>values into A:M on sheet 2. Also, I need to keep the "R is greater than 0" condition in place.

Many CSV Files Containing Common Names - Combine Across Sheets To One Line

Jun 27, 2013

I work for schools use data to guide teachers practices in the classroom. My main function is to mine down through data for kids that teachers focus on specific skills with specific children.

I start with a big conference each summer. By hand I combine, by student name, the data collected over the past school year. We then tear down to student levels setting goals based on statistical analysis. I need to combine across all of these csv files in a way that appends the data from each into one line per kid. I thought that 'vlookup' or 'index, match' might do it. I don't know.

Find Common Values Across Multiple Sheets Based On Unique ID

Oct 24, 2013

The old thread is here: [URL] ....

There are three sheets in the workbook, Project, Tasks and Details and the expected resulting sheets are RESULT, In_Tasks_but_NOT_in_Projects and In_Details_but_NOT_in_Projects .

But now what I am looking for:

1. Copy the Projects data as is in the RESULT sheet.

2. Then in the Tasks sheet, if the ID matches paste the matching rows under the data from Projects (as in the result sheet with Orange colour)

3. If the ID is present in Tasks but NOT in Projects then copy it into the In_Tasks_but_NOT_in_Projects sheet.

4. Then If the ID and the Name in the Details tab matches with the data in the RESULT sheet then paste it under the ID and Name (as in the result sheet with Green colour)

5. If the ID does not match the ID in the results sheet then copy that row into the In_Details_but_NOT_in_Projects sheet.

The result of the current macro that RHCPgergo worked with are in the last sheet.

The formatting and colour of the rows doesn't matter, it is more of nice to have.

Slow Macro - Multiple Vlookups To External Sheets

Feb 29, 2008

I'm working on a macro which compares values in particular cells across different versions of a sheet. Unfortunately there are quite a lot of values, and my code is running very slowly.

I'm trying to get the data in a grid, with the file version across the top, and down the left the project name. For each file version I need to look up a specific value for every project listed.

At the moment, my macro is creating a seperate formula for each cell which does a vlookup on the project name to the specific external file.

The relevant bit of code is below

At the moment its runnig to slow by several orders of magnitude, Working on a 4 by 10 grid it takes about a minute, and I'm going to need it to be able to handle a 50 by 800 grid.

While the code is running, the CPU is not maxed out, so I'm assuming that its the calls to the file system which are taking all the time.

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

Dim ccount As Integer
Dim rcount As Integer
Dim sFilename As String
Dim sPath As String

With ActiveSheet
For ccount = 1 To Range("c1").End(xlToRight).Column - 2

sPath = Left(FileNamesList(ccount), InStr(FileNamesList(ccount), "Pipeline ~") - 1)

sFilename = Right(FileNamesList(ccount), Len(FileNamesList(ccount)) - InStr(FileNamesList(ccount), "Pipeline ~") + 1)

For rcount = 1 To Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row - 2

by SDB.xls]Pipeline'!$A$1:$AO$300,3,0)

Cells(rcount + 2, ccount + 2) = "=VLOOKUP(""" & Cells(rcount + 2, 1) & """,'" & sPath & "[" & sFilename & "]Pipeline'!$A$1:$AO$300,3,0)"

Next rcount
Next ccount

Cannot Find Link To External Workbook

Jul 31, 2014

I have a document (unfortunately I cannot attach it) in Excel 365 that each time I open it I get the usual prompt that it is calling an external link. As much as i'd love to hide the popup I need to find the link to solve to problem but I'm at a loss.

Simply breaking the links doesn't work for some reason, so I've tried updating the source to reflect the current file. No luck there.

I've searched the workbook for the name of the link in question, searching for all formula for name itself as well as variants of "[" and ".xlms".

I don't see anything in the name manager referencing that external file.

I don't recall if I copied from that particular document, I may have as it was a duplicate file. I tried looking over the cells I believe I copied from it but didn't see the reference.

I've installed Kutools and Bill Manville (MS MVP) FindLink Tool. Both of which says there is no external link.

I've looked at the compatibility checker which basically just says, yes there is an external link but give no insight on how to address.

I've tried a couple of macros, some of which crashed excel, some of which simply said that there was an external link but not how to find it. In my frustration I forgot which one that was but I'm about to try that approach again and look for that code.

Moving A Workbook With External Links

Nov 23, 2009

I want to move the workbook I have created to a different folder on the same drive. The workbook is pretty big and has loads of links to other workbooks. If I move it will all of these links fail and if so will I have to manually reset them all? I guess I am asking if there is specific method of moving workbooks which will automatically change the links to the cope with the new location?

Copy Module To External Workbook

Mar 26, 2009

I have been trying for some days to copy a module to an external workbook with VBA. I have about 40 workbooks that have the same format. although I developed these sheets. I am not the person who uses them. I have to on occasion alter the code for some reason, its getting tiresome.

I don't think I can use the personal workbook method for this as it is not me using the workbooks. I don't even know some of the people that use them. This courses me problems because of the number of workbooks. I want to be able to maintain the code by having to write it once and propagate it through the necessary files via the VBA.

I have code from C Pearson that copies a module to another workbook.

I have posted this here just in case. Most threads on this subject just direct you here any way....

Hiding Sheets Causing A Runtime Error On External Data Refresh

Apr 20, 2007

I have a spreadsheet which has 3 separate external queries running from worksheet 'A'. My user enters a couple of dates in another worksheet 'B' to supply the date parameters for the query and a macro runs to refresh all of the queries and performs a few calculations.This works fine. The trouble is I don't want the user to be able to view all the data on sheet 'A' only the summary on B. My macro ends up on sheet B but whilst the query is refreshing the raw data is displayed to the user on sheet 'A'. When I hide the sheet 'A' i get a run time error '1004' Select method of worksheet class failed.

Copy Common Cells And Variable Range From Multiple Worksheets To Single Master Workbook

Apr 2, 2014

Basically, i have a common workbook template that is used by multiple users across the business to request a cost for numerous new products.

Within the template, there is a common section at the top, where specific project information is entered. There is also a table beneath where 1 or many products can be entered, with specific information relating to that product in the same row.

All the submitted requests are uploaded via an email attachment, to a particular sharepoint directory.

What i would like to do in the master workbook is the following:-

1. Open in turn every uploaded workbook within the sharepoint directory and copy the following cells into the master workbook, each in it's own row (or next available), with the data in adjacent cells.... 1st cell to enter data is $B6.

Cells to copy from each sheet:

Common info contained within cells:
$DG$2,$N$11,$N$12,$N$19,$N$13,$AO$7,$AO$8,$AO$9,$AO$10,$AO$11,$AO$12,$AO$12,$AO$13,$AO$14,$BO$8,$BO$11,$BO$14

Product specific info: $U37, $AD37, $AH37, $DH37, $C37, $O37

Depending on the number of products requested, we need to repeat (loop?) until it finds the next blank row in the table. I have hidden a blank row in the table, so there will always be one!

All of the common information needs to be included for each product specific entry.

For each file, once the upload has been completed, i would like the file to be moved to another "archive" directory.

I have attached the template for information. The master workbook is still in development so can't share currently.

Referring To A Sheet In An External Workbook By Position, Not Name

Oct 26, 2008

I'm trying to summarize some data from an external workbook. The problem is that the worksheet names there are months (Jan2009, Feb2009 etc.) and the sheets rotate (change position) with time. In the summarizing workbook I would like to use a function to refer to (for example) cell A1 on the third worksheet, regardless of the current name of that worksheet. So I might have a cell in the summary workbook that looks something like "=CoolFunction(ExternalWB.xls, 3, A1)"
