I have read your loop instructions under FAQ entitled; Loop through a folder of workbooks. It works very well on a local drive but I need to have it loop through a folder on a network drive. the drive is mapped as h:\computer name2008shareddocs
I want to ask about the network folder. The current systems that i develop contains about 15 excel workbooks and every workbooks link with each other. If i place all the workbooks into the network folder, does all the formula, link and vba will be changed to network too?
Such as the formula: ='G:systems[workA.xlsm]A1.
Does it will change the path of the formula? or i have to change all the formula, hyperlink and vba manually? second, how should i place the workbooks in network folder in a right way? do i need to change any setting at excel file?
I am trying to run the 'loop through a folder' code on multiple workbooks I receive.
The workbooks I receive are full of drop downs that have associated values of 1-3 on the first sheet. (About 100 in total) This particular workbook has the drop downs on one worksheet and the numeric results on another worksheet 'Results'
The second workbook 'Totals' (very basic) , just referenced each 'Results' worksheet and had equations that averaged all the drop downs cell by cell.
I would love to be able to use the 'loop through a folder' code to open them and then average them on the 'Totals' sheet. The main reason is that I am delegating this to another person and would like to eliminate the risk or human error. ( unless it is my own)
I am a total VBA n00b. Any assistance would be appreciated.
If needed I can upload the code or sheet as an example.
The base folder would always be the same. ie c: estresults*.xls
The naming would be very similar.
This loop code seemed relevant as it did not seem to require any file naming and would run through a folder and process all XLS files.
Scenario; I have 3rd party software that pulls reports in .csv files. I want to summarise this data into another spread sheet. Ideally I would like to save these files into a folder on the network and my summary workbook simply looks for this folder and is able to find data within all Excel files saved in there (new files will be added on a monthly basis).
Once it has found the folder there will be 2 pieces of data to evaluate; Cell $B$1; this will be the name of a course (e.g. health & safety, money laundering etc.) Column $D; this will contain the score achieved by multiple learners.
The summary spreadsheet then averages all of the scores for the different courses(in seperate cells)
The idea is that the .csv files can be pulled and saved into said folder and eliminates the need to manually input this data into the summary spreadsheet.
The script below scans through a specified folder on a network and scans every xls file inside that folder for a value. When it finds the spreadsheet which contains that value (a policy number) it outputs some of the data from the matching file and also provides a link to the sheet in question.
It worked perfectly until I saved, exited and re-opened the file and now I am getting a 1004 run-time error every time I try and execute the script.
I cant for the life of me work out a cause.
More baffling, the wording of the error says that the file 'R:DirCancellations.xls' could not be found.
At no point is a file called 'Cancellations.xls' specified. Why has the script decided to search for a file called 'Cancellations'?

The situation is that I have created a workbook in a network folder: xprojectsexcelclientAApril umbers
The workbook links to a few other workbooks on the same network, but in the parent folder: xprojectsexcelclientAApril
The problem occurs when my colleagues have to updates the links in the main workbook, because they have not mapped the network drive in the same way as I have. The problem is NOT the prefix, but the fact that they have a more direct link to the network folder. My collages have mapped the folder like: xclientAApril Is there a way where I can make the links in the workbook, so they don't depend on the entire string, but only on the fact that it is in the parent folder?
I have up to 50 workbooks in one folder with data in a specific range. I also have one workbook which includes additional data, including conditional formatting and dropdowns. I need to copy the desired range from the first workbook in the source folder to the second workbook, then save the latter to my destination folder, using the same name as the first. I need to repeat this process for all workbooks in the source folder.
I need to make this macro read FOLDER names instead of FILE names. When I posted this question yesterday to get this macro, I wasn't told that each file in its own folder. I need the folder names now. _____________________________________
Sub test() With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch .LookIn = "C:Ford" .SearchSubFolders = False .Filename = "*.*" .FileType = msoFileTypeAllFiles If .Execute() > 0 Then For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count Cells(i, 1) = .FoundFiles(i) Next i Else Cells(i, 1) = "No files Found" End If End With End Sub
I would like to create a code that will open all workbooks in folder "A" one at a time and then close the work book after another code is executed. So one workbook will open and while the workbook is open, I will call another code to format the active workbook and then the active workbook will be saved in folder "B" and closed and go to the next workbook in folder "A" to start all over. The folders are saved on the desktop.
I have the below macro which had previously worked for me, but now I am getting a runtime error. I tried troubleshooting this on my own now, but am coming up with nothing.
Sub ReName_Files() Dim rFiles As Range, rCell As Range Dim StrNewName As String, strOld As String Dim strPath As String Dim wbOpen As Workbook
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set rFiles = Range("A1", Range("A65536").End(xlUp)) strPath = "E:FinanceUtilization Reports2008Month End"
For Each rCell In rFiles strOld = strPath & rCell StrNewName = rCell(1, 2) Set wbOpen = Workbooks.Open(strOld) wbOpen.SaveAs strPath & StrNewName wbOpen.Close Next rCell Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
Is there a way to use a for next loop to open a workbook that is in a folder, then save and close the workbook then open the next workbook in the folder and do the same routine till all the workbooks have been updated?
I have a macro that opens all workbooks in a folder and searches for a few terms returning the appropriate rows, my problem is that someone has decided to protect some of the sheets so when the files are opened you get the password box popup. I have added the (filename, readonly) segment however this has not solved the issue, the macro displays an error stating a workbook is open.
Is there any way to resolve this without unprotecting the sheets?
I have a series of workbooks created by my salesforce (from a master template that I created for them) which they then place into a folder for me to extract data and upload that data to SAP. I am writing a procedure, therefore, to do just that.
Essentially, I would like to open the file containing the data, extract what I need and then close it. I can do that. THEN, I want to move each data file to a folder (which would depend upon the data within the file) as part of the whole procedure. I can define the new path, but I don't know how to move the book.
In creating the master template of the data files, I built into it an auto-name-creation procedure which defines the name of the file that they create. This enables me to write a procedure to work out the file to open. In order to do this, I disabled the save function (but password protected it so that I could make changes to the master template). As such, I am unable to use Save/Save As to move the data files.
I have a large number of files (100+) contained in a directory with multiple subfolders that need to be made read-only at the end of an excel macro. Because of said length, I believe (open to correction) that the SetAttr method would not work (as I do not know the individual file names). It is also necessary to preserve all of the original files' other attributes.
I have to run several different types of macros depending on the folders. each folder contains several excel files. so what i want to do is if a folder has a certain name run a certain macro, Here is the code:
VB: Sub Macro1() '//Change the path to the main folder, accordingly Call RecursiveFolders("C:Path") End Sub
then call macro 2 end what syntax code should go there?
Is there a way to write somethign that will go to a particular folder on your computer and bring back the Names of all files in that folder?
I need to build a sheet that lists certain information from each file, which is already included in the file name - trying to avoid opening hundreds of files just to get data from one cell....for example:
I need help in creating a code which will search for files in a destination path and popluate a table to tell me if the file is present(Yes or No).
To explain I need a code which will find a specific path depending on the criteria and check if the files are present in those folders. These files will be named as todays date. Please find below the table format....
I have a whole group of workbooks. Is there a way to make a new workbook that will look in the folder containing all of the other customer's books and pull information from them? In other words, I want a workbook where in Column A would contain all of the Customer's Names (Cell Info!G6), Column B would contain the Insurance Company (Cell Info!M14), etc. Is there a way to to that?
