VBA Select Multiple Sheets Of Varied/Changing Sheet Names
May 18, 2006
How can I select sheets in a workbook based on the premise that the sheetname does not have the letter "Q" in it? New to forum, so apologies if format is not kosher.
I have a group of 50+ workbooks which are all set up in the following format:
-Contains 30+ sheets.
-Sheet names are varied, but follow a pattern. I try to keep the sheet names consistant on all workbooks so that it is easier to reference, but other users make this impossible.
-However, I managed to keep two things consistant: There are two categories of sheets. In one group all sheetnames have a "Q" in them and in the other group all sheetnames DON'T have a "Q" in them.
Here is my problem: I need to run a macro to perform retative tasks on the GROUP OF SHEETS WITHOUT A "Q". To begin the macro I need to select these sheets and copy them to a new workbook, but since the actual sheetnames are varied, I am having trouble coming up with a flexible way of selecting sheets. The closest I have come is using a IF ... LIKE ... THEN statement, but I can only get it to work to select the sheets with a "Q" in the name and not the opposite.
I've been referencing sheets in my code directly with things like
however in recreating a new workbook (to reduce bloat), the sheet-numbering has changed... to avoid having to mess around adjusting things again, I was wondering if it's possible to do some sort of indirection... something similar to
I have a list of people in column A and a list of Cities that they have visited in column B.
I need to check some of the cities they have visited monthly but don't want to check them all.
I have attached a sheet as an example (this has been scaled down).
The number of cities i want to check for each person varies each month depending on how many cities they have visited.
For example, John has visited 16 cities and i want to check 5 of them. I therefore want 5 random cities that he has visited to appear next to his name at the top. The real list of data is massive so this would be really useful if it is possible.
I have looked at rand but i can't get it to randomly give me more than one city, and i don't understand how to get it to give me say 5 cities one month and say 8 cities the next month purely based on a formula from another cell.
I am having trouble getting the selection of sheets to work. I have a workbook that has multiple sheets and one constant sheet (Summary). There is code to create new forms in this workbook and insert them after the Summary sheet. These forms all have a date input that is formatted as a date (mm/dd/yyyy), these dates get modified on the day the form is created, there may be any number of sheets created during this process. I have to print the summary sheet and only the newest forms created. I need a code to select sheets to print based on the date input of a user for each form. This is what I have so far:
VB: Dim i As Variant i = Range("B5").Value >= InputBox("What date to start PDF from? Format = mm/dd/yyyy") Sheets(Array("i")).Select [code]....
If the dim can be taken out and just included in the line for the array that would be fine with me. The cell "B5" is where the date is located in each form. I want to input a date and the macro will select the sheets where the date is equal to and greater than the date entered. The Summary sheet will always be included in the print set. I have a dialog box for setting which printer to use - this file will be used at different offices and therefor the printers will be different and it will also allow to create a PDF if desired.
I have a long list of tabs listing "projects" which have changing names - on the first sheet, I want to have the table of contents automatically update and link to each tab - I want the user to only have to change the tab name to have the table of contents and link update -
I want to capture data from another workbook each month where the sheet name that I need the data from changes each month. i.e. 0810, 0811, 0812, 0901. Are possible sheet names. I've tried to build this unsuccessfully into the my -
I have a workbook that updates from external source and creates sheets depending on a cell range.
I have put tab 1 and tab 0 on either end of where the new sheets will be inputted, will never know how many sheets
What i need to happen is if someone fills in "complete" in A7 in my "summary" sheet then the values in row 6 in all the other sheets get hardcoded. This needs to happen from A7 down to A26, so A8 = complete then copy row 7 etc This is what i have so far
I get compile error here ........Sheets(ArrSh(1)).Activate
Also need it to work for all the other rows.
Sub hardcode() ' 'Sheets("Summary"). Select If Range("a7") = "complete" Then ' Sheets(Array("1", "0")).Select Sheets(ArrSh(1)).Activate
I have an email list that I email. Sometimes I get some that doesnt exist anymore. So my program sends email out and respnods to me that says these emails do not exist and gives me the emails. So I manually have to go and find them one at a time on my list to delete by CTRL F. Is there a way to submit all email names to find at once instead of doing one at a time.
I have two sheets,one called pattern of about 25000 rows and one called rp1, which is a fresh sheet downloaded each night from the web. What I want to do is select the names in column 3 of rp1 and printout in the same or a new sheet every row containing this name from the pattern spreadsheet.So for every horse named in col c,I want its complete record,could be 1 row or maybe up to 20 rows output,from the pattern worksheet(for each). They will all be underneath each other. I simply want excel to extract all the data belong to these names in rp 1 from the pattern large sheet. The names are in col r of the pattern sheet.
I have a workbook with multiple sheets. There is an overview sheet and then 14 sheets allowing for 14 days worth of schedule information. There are then 3 sheets following the 14 days to total some information. The workbook users frequently change the sheet names of the 14 sheets to reflect days of the week.
I'm creating a copy for distribution that takes the active workbook and copies the values to a new workbook. There are columns that I would like to delete from the 14 day sheets and that would be easy enough if the sheet names were never changed.
The code I'm using currently follows (my thanks to Turtle 44 for helping on that section)
Sub Copy_Visible_Sheets() Dim arr() As String Dim i As Integer Dim WB As Workbook Dim WS As Worksheet Set WB = ActiveWorkbook Application. ScreenUpdating = False
'Make sure template is saved as .xls If Not ThisWorkbook.Saved Then MsgBox "Please save this workbook before generating a Client Copy." Else
I have a workbook with 20+ sheets in it, I add sheets and delete sheets on a daily basis, except for one sheet that is like my summary sheet.
Is there a code, formula, or magic spell that will list the names of the sheets that I have deleted? For instance, if my workbook has 50 sheets and I delete 49 of them, I want to see cells A1 thru A49 (or where ever I wish to place them) filled with the names of the sheets I just deleted.
I'm trying to select multiple sheets and print them out. At this time the code is only printing out the "Work Order" sheet. I'm guessing it's something to do with the PrintOut command trying to print the active sheet and not the array?
Im sure there is a post somewhere on this forum as I have seen it before but I cant find it anywhere. All I want to do is be able to select Sheets Sun,Mon,Tue,Wed,Thu,Fri,Sat without naming each of the sheets. The post I seen would select all the sheets between the two sheets that were stated in the vba code. something like: Sheets( Array("Sun" To "Sat").select
this may or may not be easy for some of you but its driving me nuts. Here's what I need to do.
1.Create a new workbook
2.Cycle through multiple workbooks and all worksheets within each workbook (all in the same folder). All workbooks will have the same structure.
3.Take the worksheet names and put them in rows
4.Take the data from the first column (column A) from the first worksheet of the first workbook and put them across the top (i.e. transpose the data). The first column will be the same in all workbooks so it doesn't matter where I get it from.
5.Copy the data from column E from each worksheet and paste them in rows in the new workbook (again transpose) corresponding to each worksheet.
6. Perform simple mathematical calculations at the end of each row.
I expect to have approximately 26 workbooks with a total of 7000 worksheets. In the target workbook (i.e. the new one), I expect there to be 7000 rows (corresponding to the 7000 worksheets) and about 260 columns.
The only reason I need to transpose stuff is because Excel 2007 doesn't have 7000 columns.
Here's an example of what it would look like. Example worksheet (Input)- Worksheet ABC Col A Col E 1/1/2004 $25 1/8/2004 $30 1/15/2004 $15
Imagine another worksheet called LMN with the same ColA but different values in Col E.
Output workbook ColA Columns B Column C Column D Sheet 1/1/2004 1/8/ 2004 1/15/2004 ABC $25 $30 $15 LMN $xxx $yyy $zzz
I'm not including my spreadsheet because it has company information however, I will try to articulate my request as best I can. I currently have an Excel spreadsheet with about 20 worksheets, I would like to be able to click on the first worksheet, create a "Drop Down box" or "Data Validation" box or whatever I need to do to be able to view information in a range of cells on ANOTHER worksheet within the same workbook.
I've tried Data Validation, Drop Down Boxes, Define name ranges, all to NO avail. I'm missing a step somewhere, because I'm still not able to view the information on the first worksheet.
I have a workbook with 26 sheets, labelled A to Z. Column A in all the sheets have names from rows A6:A35.
I need a macro or a code to extract all the names from each of the 26 sheets and paste it to a new sheet 'Names' under column A, such that names starting with 'B' paste under all the names 'A' and so forth till 'Z'.
I need to create a function that selects 4 names randomly from a list of 15 names and displays the 4 randomly selected names in the one cell. Also, you cannot repeat the same name in that cell, (i.e. bob cannot be selected twice in his group of four)
Moving between different sheets changes the procedure window, which is a good thing, but can also can be error prone and annoying to search through several windows searching for the procedure or module currently working on. Is there a setting somewhere to prevent VBE from changing the current procedure window?
I have about 20 workbooks with different file names for different projects all saved in the same folder. Each workbook has about 10 worksheets and each worksheet is named in a similar fashion in each of the 20 workbooks (eg. revenue, cost, variance etc.). I want to pull out a worksheet named ' forecast' from each workbook into a master workbook so that the master workbook would contain the 20 forecast worksheets.
I need a macro that will look for a specific text string in the tab names of the workbook and replace it with a new specified text string (leaving the rest of the existing tab names). In other words, a simple find/replace but applied to all tab names in the workbook rather than cells. Ideally, I'd like it to pop up something and ask for the text to find and the text to replace it with, so I don't have to edit the macro itself each time I want to use it, but editing the macro each time is fine. Either way will be wonderful.
I have a workbook that includes 4 seperate sheets that are used to record time and expenses for 4 members of staff. I want to write a macro to select the data I need from each sheet and colaberate together in a 'data' sheet so I can combine all the info to run time and expense reports per client showing combination of all time and expense incurred from all 4 staff.
I have named cell ranges in each of the 4 time-sheets. I proceed to record a macro, select the first named range, copy and paste into my data sheet, do a control home then control down arrow, then one more down arrow to get to the first blank cell and repeat the process for all four time-sheets.
This works until I add a new line and then the data will only appear for the last time-sheet (last row of data).
