Changing Reference From Current Years File Data To Blank File Data

Feb 19, 2014

So I am trying to take a couple of tabs from current year data file and pasting them into the blank file.

My question when is do that all the formulas get referenced to the current years file. i want to keep the same formulas but reference the tabs on blank file.

Is there a quicker way to do this rather and going into all the cells and changing reference from current years files data to blank files data.

Copy Data From Open File To Current Active Workbook

May 2, 2008

I want to create a standard macro that will copy values from a Master workbook to the current, active workbook I have open. The problem I have run into is when I record a macro it also records the name of the active workbook I'm copying data into and I would like it so when I bring up a workbook I just run the macro and it copies the values in. I'll be doing 8 different macros that each copy different values from the Master spreadsheet

Retrieve Cell Data From Another Excel File And Paste Into Specified Cells In Current Spreadsheet

Dec 8, 2012

I have a spreadsheet witht the following design:

Column A = Date
Column B = Value 1
Column C = Value 2

I have a folder with excel files named by date (e.g. 081212 = 8th December 12). Within each of those files is Value 1 and Value 2. They are always in the same cell (B6= Value 1, B16= Value 2).

How can i create a macro/script where the Values in Column B and Column C in my spreadsheet are automatically updated where there is a Date in Column A but no values in Column B or C?

In other words, i need the script to read the date in Column A and if Column B and Column C are blank, then it needs to find the corresponding date excel file and copy Value 1 and Value 2 into the cells in my spreadsheet.

Saving Cell Contents To XML File Saved As Current Workbook File Name

Dec 12, 2012

I have numerous spreadsheets that I need to open and unhide a sheet, that has XML data stored in cell A1. What I need to do is copy that data in cell A1 and paste it into a text document and save that as an XML file saved as the XLS workbook name with a date stamp.

I'm running into many issues, the main issue is the saving as current file name, and the formatting of the text/XML file.

Here is my current code, which doesn't reference the current file name and is just very generic. Once I get the saving as file-name correct and the formatting of the xml file correct, I will work on it a bit more.

Sub Test()
Dim Rng As Range
Dim wb As Workbook
Set Rng = Range("A1:A2")
Set wb = Workbooks.Add
With wb

Export Data From A Template File To Total List File Using Macro In Template File

Dec 18, 2012

I have a template file for ordering trafolyte and steel plates. I have added macros to this template file. The existing macros do the following (shortly described):

Macro 1: clears order
Macro 2: update order date + send a read only file to the supplier of plates + save a read only copy of the file into one of three folders acc to info in one of the cells.

It's the Macro 2 I want to edit.

I want to add a "function" which copy a selection of data.column A to N from row 12 to 548 but only the rows where there is a value in column A.

Row 1 to 11 includes standard order info and Macro buttons.
Row 11 includes the heading for order data.

For everytime someone click on the Macro 2 button in the template file, I want the selection to be paste into the first "available" row in a "Total list" file.

The "Total list" file may have to be open (or a function to open, paste selection and then close the "Total list" file may be added)

File and Folder info:

To simplify suggestions, the following file and path info can be used (I can change to the correct later):
Template file name: template_order.xlsm
Template file location: \servershared emplate

Total list file name: total_list.xlsx
Total list file location: \servershared otal

Selection info:

The template file exists of a "general order info area" A1:N10
The column heading for order data is located at A11:N11
The selection to be copied is A12:N550 - But only rows where column A includes data (not empty).
(If the spesific order consists of 14 plates than there will be item no 1-14 in column A and I then I want to copy A12:N25 (row 25 will be item 14).

When I try to use record macro it looks like it only records what's happening in the template file - It doesn't record the pasting in the total list.

Text File Import Produces Unwanted Blank Lines Between Rows Of Data

Jan 19, 2010

After doing some searching I found a macro here which imports multiple text files into one workbook, keeping each text file as a seperate worksheet, each worksheet named the same as the original file name (minus the .txt extension).

However, it adds a blank line between each line of text. So I get this:

Pinging with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time=232ms TTL=62

Reply from bytes=32 time=62ms TTL=62

Reply from bytes=32 time=65ms TTL=62

instead of this:........

Pinging with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time=232ms TTL=62
Reply from bytes=32 time=62ms TTL=62
Reply from bytes=32 time=65ms TTL=62

This doesn't happen when I use the import wizard, or when I just open the file from the File -> Open menu.

My text files are always the same format (number of lines, etc.), so it's easy to delimit and insert forumlae as needed, but those extra lines are breaking a macro I've previously written to parse the data.

Extract Data And File Names From File In Folder And Paste Into One Sheet?

Jan 13, 2013

The code below looks at file names in column A and then goes to a folder and opens and copies the data in range c2 -lastrow from each file and pastes the data into sheet2.

how I could add to the code so that it also inserts the file name in column c?

It would make it easier to track the data in column B.

Sub CopyFromFile()
Dim fPath As String
Dim lRow As Long


I have attached a sample workbook. The list of file name is in sheet 1. An example of the output is in sheet 2. The data in column A is dummy data generally spans 100's of rows not just 10 as in the example.

The purpose of the code is to be able to put a list of file names in column a in sheet 1 and extract data from those files in a folder. The data extraction works fine. The reson for adding the file names is so that I know what file the data came from.

Sort Multiple File Data & Copy Matching Records To New File

Feb 13, 2008

This is a sample of the data with which I am working. I know that a macro can do what I need, but I am only versed in Excel formulas and not that much programming. I need to be able to first sort the data by Column C ("Element Type"), then by Columns E, F, G ("Year", "Month", "Day"). Then, I need to be able to copy all rows that have the same "Element Type" and "Year" to a new file, using the same header from the original spreadsheet on each new spreadsheet - doing this multiple times until the end of the file is reached.

Ideally, the new files would have a strict naming convention: XXXXXX-ZZZZ (YYYY).xls, where the X's are the value of the "COOP Station ID" in Column A, the Z's are the "Element Type" from Column C, and the Y's are the "Year" from Column E. If this theoretical macro were run with the Sample Data file I provided, it should result in the creation of five new workbooks. Is there a way to write a macro to do this, or at least something similar

Copy Data From New Everyday Csv File To Next Empty Row In Master File

Dec 15, 2009

I have csv files auto generated (with date stamp in name) and saved in a specific folder everyday. I need to find a macro that will copy the row(s) every day and add to the next empty row in the master excel file. Some days the csv file may have a single row of data and on some other days it may have multiple rows of data to copy and paste.

Moving Columns Of Data Into Another File And Saving File With New Filename?

Aug 30, 2013

I was wondering if there is a way to write a macro that will take an excel file that I have called Alldata and then have it copy the first two sheets to a new workbook named something else( FullSparameter_0) and then copy the name of the third and fourth sheet into the new FullSparameter_0 workbook and then copy column A-E from sheet dB Alldata.xls and paste it into the FullSparameter_0.xls workbook in the same dB sheet in the same spot. And do the same thing with the Phase Sheet. i know this sounds confusing, but im really new to the VBA stuff.

I just need 15 different files from the original Alldata.xls that will be named FullSparameter_0, FullSparameter_1, .., FullSparameter_14. but each file will have the same two first sheets, Setup Information and Cal Verification, and the same last two sheet names, dB and Phase, but then in the dB and phase sheets, it will copy over the next four columns of data. so in FullSparameter_0 it will have column A-E from sheet dB in Alldata.xls in the dB sheet in FullSparameter_0 (Same with the Phase Sheets). Then in FullSparameter_1 it will have column A and Columns F,G,H and I (for dB and Phase). In fullSparameter_2 it will have column A and then J,K,L and M. Each FullSparameter_X will have the exact same first two sheets and then the other columns for the last two sheets will be pasted into columns A-E in dB and Phase.

Macro/function To Take Data From Source File Into Base File

Jun 24, 2006

I have a base excel file for summarizing some data, the problem is that the data comes from a different excel spreadsheet. What I want to do is make a function that pulls the data from another spreadsheet into my base file. It would be easy if it were just one excel sheet, but this job would require where the data is pulled from a data file which has many modified versions.

Can anyone tell me how to do this? The files with the data will be structured the exact same but with different data entered in. I just want a button so I can click the file I want the data from and have it show up on my summarizing base file.

Automatically Reference The Contents Of Another File Into Main File

Apr 30, 2009

I am trying to automatically reference the contents of another file into my main file. Basically I have one schedule that I've automatically generated in AutoCAD, and another formatted template. The AutoCAD schedule is completely unformated.

I want to include a link to the AutoCAD scheule (a *.CSV file) on my main spreadsheet and have the autoCAD schedule populate my template. I've done some reading, primarily on here, and I think I need to use either the INDIRECT() or the INDEX() function.

I can get INDIRECT() to work, but it's fairly repetitive (not overly important, but still.....). More importantly, though, the schedule file has to be open, which I would like to avoid if possible. INDEX(), I just can't figure out how to work!

Building Macro To Extract Data From One File Into Another Different File

Feb 21, 2014

I need to set up an automated process to open an existing .xls file, extract the data from specific cells located in that file and insert it into a totally different file that I have preformatted to accept this data.

Example scenario:

If I have "that_file.xls" and it is unopened, but it contains data in cells "A2 thru F2" that I need to extract... then I have "this_file.xls" , which is open, and set up with all my calculation cells and a specific layout (lets say it has cells "D8, E9, F10, G11, H12, and I13"). I want to be able to add a button to "this_file.xls" to run a macro that would open a file search window where I can select "that_file.xls", and then it will automatically extract the data from "that_file.xls" into "this_file.xls" as follows:

A2 to D8
B2 to E9
C2 to F10
D2 to G11
E2 to H12
F2 to I13

Get Data From Cells In External File - File Name Changes Daily

Aug 1, 2014

I have a file that gives some statistical data to my co-workers every 15 minutes. A common question I get is "How does that compare to last week?" Then I have to open the file from 7 days ago, find the data from the same time interval, and subtract it from this week's number in my head. I'd like to have excel do this for me.

I know how to get data from an external file. The problem is, these files are named with a date on the end of the file name. So tomorrow, the static formula won't work anymore (or rather, it will give data for a file from 8 days ago, instead of 7). I'd like to excel to use today's date, find the file from 7 days ago, and get the data from that file to compare to the current file.

Here's what I've done so far:

ThisDate = Range("C1").Value 'the cell with todays date in it
ThisDateName = Format$(ThisDate, "yyyy-mm-dd") 'now formatted the way I need it
ThisDate7 = Range("G1").Value 'the cell with the date 7 days ago
ThisDateName7 = Format$(ThisDate, "yyyy-mm-dd") 'formatted correctly
ThisDate14 = Range("G2").Value 'the cell with the date 14 days ago
ThisDateName14 = Format$(ThisDate, "yyyy-mm-dd") 'you know, in case of a holiday 7 days ago

I have no clue what to do next. I want Excel to: Use "ThisDateName7" to find the file with the name "pph_tracker_[ThisDateName7].xlsm"Get data from a cell in that file (say, C15)Subtract it from the data in the same cell (C15) in today's file (this week - last week)Give me the result in today's file (say in cell C20)Do that again for cells D15, E15, and so on (result in D20, E20, etc)

I assume I can figure out the rest from there. Can I use the variable names in an actual formula in cell C20? Something like:

=C15 - '[pph_tracker_{ThisDateName7}.xlsm]Sheet1'!C15
or even
=C15 - '[pph_tracker_{The Date in Cell $G$1}.xlsm]Sheet1'!C15
which would require no macros at all!

Adding Row Of Data From One File To Master File

Dec 30, 2013

I am a lacrosse coach and am keeping track of key stats that our team values that cannot be found in the box score (ex: 'Secondary Assists'). To do this we have created a group of rather simple Excel spreadsheets to keep track of these. We have one master file will all the total data from the season and 10 or so secondary files for each game that we played. To this point, I have been adding the data from the different game files to the master file manually and it is very time consuming.

My question, is it possible to copy a row of data from one of the secondary files and have excel add that data to the existing data in the master file?

Match & Copy Data From File To File

Aug 23, 2008

Is there an easy way to automatically copy data from 1 Excel spreadsheet to another when the data is slightly out of order? Currently an admin copies and pastes from file 1 to file 2 manually. There are approximately 800 names to copy. It would be ideal to type a command or press a key and have file 2 updated automatically. Is there a feasible way to accomplish this without spending a lot of money or time?

file 1 file 2

john 100 john 100
june 200 lance 50
marie 150 june 75
stan 100 marie 125
phone 50 stan 200
hold 25

In the example above, if lance doesn't appear in file 1 his amount doesn't get copied and his 50 remains the same. The amounts do not get added, just pasted over from file 1 to file 2 with the days sales results. Only the names on file 2 get pasted over. Phone and hold amounts in file 1 are ignored.

Referencing File Name While Changing File Name

Jun 8, 2007

I have a more general question. When doing something such as loading a picture, is it possible to be able to have code which the loading file name changes with a variable. For example, if I have pictures with names 1.jpg thru 120.jpg(all in the same directory) is it possible to write a code that loops and loads the proper image without having to write a section of code for each file name? This would be the directory(C:Documents and Settings muzaDesktopNew DatabaseDatabase Images312312_250) so could I code the filename calls something like this with having picname be the variable which goes from 1 to 180:

.Pictures.Insert( _
"C:Documents and Settings muzaDesktopNew DatabaseDatabase Images312312_250" & picname & ".jpg").Select

Data File To File

Nov 3, 2009

I have 2 Excel files one is a weekly accounts page which duplicates the Simplex D book keeping system, the other takes data from the weekly sheet to make totals of income and expenditure to enable me to

I have successfully made the weekly page work and it comprises 52 sheets for weeks 1 to 52.

I now need to extract data from the cells in this file to another called summary, which I've been doing with the simple but very slow and potentially inaccurate method of.

Select cell in summary, press =, then go to weekly file select cell in Weekly I need data from, press enter, and then repeat for the next cell, this takes an age to do.

Is there a simple formula for doing this, as there are as mentioned 52 sheets in one file, and 15 columns x 52 rows to cross reference at the very least

It may be that having just one file comprising weekly and summary might have made this easier, but from a newbie point it's easier to have both file open to more easily go from one to the other, and I'm not sure how I would recombine the two files.
