Consolidating Certain Information Within Many Data Files Into Single Tab In Master File

Feb 14, 2013

I'm a relatively competent VBA user to a macro recorder and basic editing of custom code level but fall short with writing custom code and don't have much used or proven code I can copy from.

Problem: I'd like to automate a process whereby consolidating certain information within many data files (possibly up to 500) into a single tab within a master file.

At the moment there are only a few data files which are manually consolidated by way of manual links but going forward it will increase significantly, hence the need to automate.

I need to consolidate the following 5 cells from each data file A1, A2, A5, A7, A8 (vertical) into a single row within the master file across 5 columns (horizontal), i.e. each data file will populate 1 row in the master file, one below the other. If there are 500 data files there will be 500 rows of data in the master file.

The data files will be saved in a central location on our server and the master file will sit outside this folder, possibly in a subfolder.

Something which would be handy is a link in the master file to each data file, i.e. if I click on a data row in the master file it would jump to the source data file.

Transfering Files From Lots Of Files To One Single Exel Master File.

Jun 26, 2009

Need a way to update a single master file. What happens right now is that the cost manager sends out one file to a lot of different project heads and then on having them return back to him he basically has to individually add in all the data. What i am trying to do is that he somehow carries on sending out the data as there are a lottt of projects and then on returning them they automatically update.

Transfers (copy/paste) Information From One Master File To Several Other Individual Files

Apr 16, 2009

I have a macro that transfers (copy/paste) information from one master file to several other individual files. The macro works, but I would like
to enhance it by have it spit out errors in the process as follows: if cell A42 on file VP1.xls is not equal to Cell C35 on file Masterfile.xls then make cell E2 ERROR and fomat E2 bold-red, otherwise do nothing. The macro should continue regardless, I just want it to spot errors.
I think this is pretty simple is just a matter of inserting an IF formula in the macro which is something i don't know how to do yet.

Consolidating Information Into A Master Sheet Based On Cell Value

Mar 14, 2013

I am putting together a register of information and it is broken up over a number of sheets i.e. LOG1, LOG2 etc.

I have a master sheet in which I want information to automatically populate based on whether a certain column has the words yes or no.

Ie Column I in LOG1 or LOG2 etc can either be yes or no. Is there a way to populate the Master sheet only with the information of a row in which column I is yes?

I know it would have to be a formula in the master sheet which checks all the sheets and then somehow populates the master sheet downwards if anything is yes but then removes it once that yes becomes a no....

Getting Data From Collection Of Workbooks Into 1 Single Master File

Jan 14, 2014

I'm trying to collect specific data from a collection of different (.xls) files into 1 master file using the following code (which runs in the master file):

Code:
Sub FolderPick()
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
With Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFolderPicker)

[Code].....

I'm having trouble with the Name-variable in the 'red line'. This variable is set in the 'purple lines' however, the code (which I got online) keeps adding ".pdf" to the name.

I think it has to do with the settings of the 'purple/underlined line' but I don't know if this is true and if so, how to change it.

Pasting Data From A Master File To Two Other Files

Nov 15, 2009

My project requires working with 3 different files, in my example here: Delivery Status, Warehouse, and Clients. Delivery Status is the master file where the information is gathered at first. Then when the product arrives, from the column "AI" I choose the Destination which it could be a warehouse or client. So far the code that I have can paste the information in different sheets within the File Warehouse, but can not make the difference between the File warehouse and the file Clients.

In the Delivery Status file I can choose from the Column AI whether the destination is a warehouse or a client and I need Excel to paste the information in the proper file. Have in mind that I have a lot of sheets in both files. I am attaching an example files with the code.

Get Information From Different Files For Master Sheet

Jan 13, 2010

- I have the following folder/file structure:

MP1
CT
CTfile1.csv
CTfile2.csv
CV
CVfile1.csv
CVfile2.csv
FT
FTfile1.csv
FTfile2.csv

...etc - it keeps on going for more subfolders.

- Every subfolder has 2 different .csv files.

- Every file has the same structure. Relevant info:
. column B - time string
. column C - value

- The files are automatically genarated and report lots of single events (evaluated in Column C) that occurr in a specific time (dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss specified in Column B)

- All files have the same number of lines.

- Line 2 in fileX refers to the same time as Line 2 in fileY; the same for all lines.

What I need is a Macro in a file "Master.xls" placed in folder MP1 to automatically:

1. open each file in the subfolders
2. copy the time string (column B) for A2 down - only needed for the first file
3. copy the relevant info (column C) - in every file
4. close all files

Result: I have a "Master" file with the relevant info of all the others, preceeded by a time string from where I can work (pivot table, graph, etc.). The files can have from 5.000 to 30.000 lines, depending on the day.

Aug 29, 2006

I am trying to open set of excel files to fetch data starting from a master excel file where the links are given using a loop. Some of files given as links are either absent or the link is wrong.

* What is the syntax to find if the link is correct/present

* What is the syntax to find if the file is present in specified location

* What is the syntax to find if the file is password protected to open

* I use error handler to resume the next statement if OPEN statement fails.It works fine inside the loop only for first two files.

For example if the third link is errorneous the error handler fails and RUN TIME ERROR occurs.

Copy Information From Variable Workbooks To Master File Then Loop?

Apr 30, 2014

What I have is a master file that needs to pull info from other sources (a simple copy and paste)
those files are called Inventory_xxxx.xlsm . Inside the master file, there are cells with the number of the inventory.

What i need is a way to tell excel to check what number is in the cell, open the files with that number, get the info from the files and paste it back in the master file... and the part that i consider the trickiest, a way to loop it.

For example, lets say i have 2248 in cell A10, it should open Inventory_2248.xlsm copy the contents from cell N4, O4, P4, Q4, R4 and S4(Inventory File) into N10,R10,S10,T10 and U10 (Master file) respectively then in A11, there could be a 2250 so it should open the 2250 file get the info, paste it and so on.....

Now I don't even know if this is do-able or just impossible, been fiddling with various codes to no avail.

I have about 100 csv files of the same format that I would like to append into a single master file. Order is not important for appending (I can do a column sort later) I can do copying and pasting, but this will take a long time especially because I will creating more master files from completely different CSVs in the future. Is there a faster way to append CSV files?

Vlookup: Pull From Files Into A Master File

Sep 11, 2009

I have six files that are formatted the same(fld1-1.xlsx, fld1-2.xlsx...). Each file contains an I.D. number (random 25 digit number) in column A and a note (1-9) in column B. The only thing that changes between files is the note column. I want to pull from these six files into a master file. When all six files are combined the note column in the master file is complete, there are no duplicates. Because a blank vlookup returns a zero, could I use an IF formula. Something like IF VLOOKUP FROM data01(ISNUMBER(0), then vlookup in file data02. IF VLOOKUP FROM data02(ISNUMBER(0), then vlookup in file data03.

Macro To Add New Sheet To Many Excel Files From A Master File?

Jul 11, 2013

I have many folders (around 500) - each of them contains a excel file (the excel files have all the same name), ideally I would like to be able to run a macro from a master excel file that would allow me to add a sheet which I would create in the master excel file and add it to all of the excel files that are in the folders. So far I have used the code from the link: [URL]

VB:
Sub CopyWorkbook()
Dim sh As Worksheet, wb As workbook
Set wb = workbooks("1.xlsx")

[Code].....

but when I change it from 2.xlsx to 1.xslx in the code it works just fine, copying the sheets from the file to itself.

Consolidating Data Into One File

May 28, 2009

I am trying to automatically copy and paste data from multiple source workbooks into one master file, and could use some assistance with building a macro to do so. Specifically, I'm trying to accomplish the following:

1. Open source file.

2. Within the source file, find any worksheets whose name begins with a 5-digit number.

3. For these worksheets only, copy values from a specified range (B15:B64, J15:J64, and V15:V64), and paste these values into the master workbook (into worksheets already existing in the master workbook, whose names match those in the source workbook).

4. Close the source file and repeat this process for the next one.

In total, I'll have ~20 source files to process in this manner. I have the file names listed in Column C of the "Import" sheet on my master workbook.

So far, I have been successful in taking care of the step 1 (opening the external files). I'm a macro newbie, though, and am not sure how to tackle the conditional cutting and pasting outlined above.

Create Subfiles From Master File Using Key To Split Workbooks To Separate Files

Jun 13, 2013

I am trying to make my macro more dynamic for a spreadsheet I am working on. I have this code which splits out worksheets (using the specific names of the worksheets-not dynamic) from a main workbook into template workbooks (which are basically just an empty workbook because I didn't know how else to do it) and then saves them using the paths below. I would like to make this more dynamic by splitting the different worksheets into new workbooks based on a key column in the hierarchy worksheet.

Basically I have a list of accounts in column B with the file name they should be exported to in column A. There are about 30 accounts being split into 6 different region files. Also note that the same account might be listed multiple times in column A (needed to add multiple numbers for other lookup formulas in the worksheets) but that account worksheet will still only be going to one of the six region files and not to multiple regions. After these are copied to an individual file I would like to save it to a location on my computer. All files will go to this location.

VB:
Sub Create_Subfiles()

Dim FDMName As String
Dim FBName As String
Dim DIYName As String
Dim WMName As String

Consolidating Folder Containing Multiple Files That Contain Same Tab Name

Aug 15, 2012

I have a folder that contains around 45 excel files, each of these files contain a tab called "corp val". (these files change name month to month e.g. Report June, Report July etc)

I am finding on a monthly basis i need to go into each of these excel files and copy the data from the "corp val" tab into a summarized spreadsheet - which i then use the data for various things.

Just wondered if there was a solution to this or will it always be difficult to copy and pasting all the data i need. I am not in anyway an advanced excel user, I am guessing this might be some form of macro in which case I am maybe better to keep doing it the way I was as I am not literate in macros.
