Loop Through Set Of Files And Check If File Doesn't Exist?

Feb 11, 2014

My problem is that I want to loop through a directory that contains csv files. The directory is dynamic so everytime could be a different number of files inside. I want the loop to go through each file and check if that file exists. If it doesn't to print a message that this specific files doesn't exist. Until now I got the following code:

[Code] .........

I guess I should somehow place the counter j inside the Dir path in order to check if everytime time the file[j] exists?

Check If 10 Specific Sheets Exist In The File With New Data

Jan 31, 2014

I have two workbooks open, the first is a summary, the second has new data that needs transferring into the summary. Before transferring the data I need to check that 10 specific sheets exist in the file with the new data.

I have found some code that checks for one sheet name, but really need to check for 10 specific names, if any are missing then I need a message to appear, listing the missing ones and stopping the macro from proceeding,

Dim mySheetName As String, mySheetNameTest As String
mySheetName = "Data"
On Error Resume Next
mySheetNameTest = Worksheets(mySheetName).Name
If Err.Number = 0 Then

Import Macro Trying To Gain Acces To File That Doesn't Exist.

Dec 14, 2006

I get the following error:

"Run-time error '1004': "cmc4906.xls" File cannot be found.
Check the spelling of the file name and verify that the file
location is correct."

I am not trying to open a xls file. The path is clear and there are no file names with extensions in the path name (C:Weekly). I'm unclear of why the code thinks its looking for file cmc4906.xls and a xls file at that.

Sub Import()

Dim inputfile As Variant
Dim path As Variant

path = ("C:Weeklys")
inputfile = Dir("C:Weeklys")

Do While inputfile <> ""

Workbooks.OpenText Filename:=inputfile, Origin:=437, StartRow _
:=1, DataType:=xlDelimited, TextQualifier:=xlDoubleQuote, _
ConsecutiveDelimiter:=False, Tab:=True, Semicolon:=True, Comma:=False, _
Space:=False, Other:=False, FieldInfo:=Array(Array(1, 2), Array(2, 1), Array( _
3, 1), Array(4, 1), Array(5, 2), Array(6, 2), Array(7, 1), Array(8, 1), Array(9, 1), Array(10 _.............

Add Rows From One Sheet To Another Only If It Does Not Already Exist?

Jun 22, 2013

I have two sheets containing data, Sheet 1 and Sheet 2. Sheet 1 contains columns A-P, while sheet 2 only contains columns A-K.

Some of the records listed in Sheet 2 are already in Sheet 1 with more complete data, but there are some records not in Sheet 1 and the only information available for these records is in Sheet 2.

I am looking for a macro that will compare columns A in Sheet 1 and Sheet 2 and for any records found in Sheet 2 but not sheet one, the entire row A-K of Sheet 2 will be added to Sheet 1.

Insert Row From Different Sheet If It Does Not Exist?

Jul 25, 2014

I have a workbook with 2 sheets of data. I'm having trouble coming up with a code that can check if a row from sheet 2 does not exist on sheet 1, and if not, copy that row from sheet 2 and insert it into sheet 1 (preferable on the fist blank row).

It should check 4 specific columns on sheet 2, and if sheet 1 doesn't contain a row with the same data in those same 4 columns than the entire row should be inserted into sheet 1.

For example lets say row 4 of sheet 2 contains the values "Blue" in column D, "Green" in column E, "Yellow" in column H, and "Purple" in column I. If sheet 1 does not contain a row (any row, not just row 4) with those same 4 values in those same columns, then the entire row from sheet 2 should be inserted into the first empty row in sheet 1.

Search For Value And Add If It Doesn't Exist?

May 24, 2012

I am really new to using Excel macros and having an issue trying to insert data in a column where the data may or may not already exist. In Column A I have a list of product lines.


I want to search through this list and if Prodline1 does not exist, then add a Prodline1 row to the end of the list, then check for Prodline2, Prodline3 etc and do the same. On any given month I may or may not have data for the Prodline but I still need to see it in my list. I've tried this code below but only get data if I define an actual cell and it only works for the first one.

Set R = ActiveSheet.Range("A1")
endrange = Range("A65000").End(xlUp).Row
For i = 1 To endrange

Macro: Does Picture Exist

Nov 30, 2006

I have been able to piece together something that works great for me till i tested it on a item that I did not have a picture referanced to it.

I am looking for some help with what i guess is an "if" statement that if no picture is found paste "Sorry no picture found" in c3.

Here is code

Sub Copy_Cells()
'Copying the row
addr = ActiveSheet.Shapes(Application.Caller).TopLeftCell.Address
Intersect( Range(addr).EntireRow, Range("b:ak")).Select
Selection.Copy Sheet2.Range("b65536").End(xlUp).Offset(0, 0)

'Picture code
MyPicturesName = Sheets("sheet3").Range("i5").Text

'hide tabs
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Visible = False

Does TextBox Value Exist In Range

May 8, 2008

I need to compare a text box value to a dynamic range the value will be entered in upon a command button click. If the value matches a value within the range, then message box "Duplicate Item Found." Also, if the value is blank, then message box "Please Enter A Value." And finally if the value proves to be unique and not blank, then add the value to the range.

I want to do this on a command button click so that I can use the textbox with 2 other buttons: one to refresh the textbox to a blank value, and one to exit the form the textbox is located in.

Check Before If Chart Object Exist

Nov 11, 2008

I wrote a macro that selects 3 charts existing in a sheet and sets the axes to auto scale option. The charts are labeled Chart 2, Chart 6 and Chart 7 by default, the macro selects each of then and then sets the auto scale option.

Is it possible to use 'If then' statement to check if the chart object exists ? In case they do exist then macro works on them but if not then it goes to the next statement.

Or is there any other way to check if objects exists or not, because sometimes the macro is used for old files (template) and the chart objects there have different numbers and not 2, 6 and 7. So to use macro for both templates( new and old) its better to check first. This way the macro becomes more flexible.
