Copy A Range Of Cells In Another Workbook Opened In A Separate Instance Of Workbook
Feb 11, 2010
I m not able to use the standard Excel Paste Special function when I copied a range of cells in another Excel workbook opened in a separate instance of Excel. Instead, Paste Special thinks that I have copied some non-Excel objects and gave me the Paste As options. This is not the case if I open both workbook within the same instance of Excel. Could you share with us if there is a trick to trigger the normal Paste Special options in such situations (without having to invoke Macro procedures)?
I am trying to run an SQL query to the worksheet of the workbook opened. This is worth noting, that this code is being called multiple times. Suppose if I have around 100 items in a listview, any item I will check or uncheck, this query will be fired. I tried selecting the five items, and the following code ran five times, and the excel ghost instance appeared.
-I've been trying to get an answer to this problem for some time and I would like to try again from a different approach.
I may have 5 workbooks open in 5 different Instances of Excel. The number of files open varies. When the below Function is called, it checks to see if the file, trying to be opened, is already open or not.
Currently, if the file is already open, a mesage is displayed stating that it is open and the user has to search through tabs looking for the file so that it can be displayed.
What I want to do in place of a message, is activate the file that is already open and display it. No message necessary.
I have tried "Application.Activate" and can not make it work.
I have an open workbook (A) and this is where the code should reside. I want to use VBA to copy the content of an entire worksheet from a closed workbook (B) to an existing worksheet in workbook A. How would you accomplish this?
I want the code to run when we open excel workbook "TEST" and it should open up all the workbooks one by one in the folder J:ABC and copy cells C2 and C4 values in the A and B columns of TEST workbook.
e.g There are 5 workbooks in the folder J:ABC so when the TEST workbook is opened then the code should run and open 1st workbook and copy values in cells C2 and C4 to it and close the workbook.
The code should run as below:
C2 value will go in Test workbook B1 C4 value will go in Test workbook A1
Close 1st workbook
C2 value will go in Test workbook B2 C4 value will go in Test workbook A2
close 2nd workbook.
C2 value will go in Test workbook B3 C4 value will go in Test workbook A3
close 3rd workbook.
and so on It will be going to next rows in A and B columns.
I have a workbook with about 30 tabs in it. It is currently protected by a password. The workbook itself has a couple of 1000 formulas across the tabs.
What I would like to do is to lock certain cells on each worksheet depending upon if the workbook is opened as "read only" or "in edit mode" (when someone uses the password).
So when someone uses the correct password, I would still like certain cells to be locked, or after the initial password is entered for editing, another popup box with "would you like to edit cell formulas? Y/N (only on selective cells), if no, then no editing on those cells allowed, if yes, then prompted to input another password to do this.
All i did was i just created a form to open a workbook from the directories.
Code to copy the data from that recently opened workbook to my workbook where I have my forms. I need to copy that data as in the case that i don't know the workbook and the sheet name i'am going to open as i may open any of the files!!
How to Automatic open others Workbook when we opened the Master Workbook. Examp.: I have a workbook (Master.xls), and when this file be opened, and then others workbook (Transactions.xls, Order.xls, etc.) is opened too.
I have a workbook that is a formatted report that I need to insert data from a name variable "CSV" file. I have created a macro in this workbook that calls an "Open" dialog for CSV files that I can use to browse to and open the source file. The macro then is supposed to "select all" copy and close the workbook then make the original workbook active and paste the data starting at row 2. The macro "seems" to be working perfectly except when I do the open the macro then makes the original workbook active, selects all copies then wants to close the original workbook. How can I tell the macro that the csv file that I just opened should be the active workbook, baring in mind that the name won't be known before the time it's opened so I can't hardcode the "active. workbook (NAME) "route.
I have 2 workbooks. 1 is where data is entered called wksPB, the other is like a database workbook. The wksPB has data to be feed from column B to F and there is a dropdown.
what im looking to do is, if the combobox value is selected as Decline then it should display a messagebox that reference value in cell B is denied. if combobox value is Agreed then the macro should search the database workbook for the text entered in column b of wksPB and then copy data of C:E of wksPB to H:J of database sheet where that text is found and also the approver name in wksPB C24 to the approver cell of where that text was found. I've reached till finding the text but what I get my head twiting on is how to copy the text from wksPB column B:F to database sheet column H:K. Im attaching the sample workbooks and the code where ive reached till.

On one workbook I have "column A" that lists serial #'s, one serial number per cell. What I need is to be able to take all the non blank data from that column and copy it to another workbook with all those serial #'s in 1 cell numerically sorted and separated by commas.
i have a workbook blank template for my colleagues to fill in, they fill in this blank template and save it under the serial number of the item they are creating. However a lot of errors exist when they input the serial number inside the workbook where the serial number is a duplicate of a former serial number.
Anyhow i was wondering is there any way when they input the serial number into the worksheet that i could get it to save in a separate workbook and then have conditional formatting to check those serial numbers in the workbook to see if they match?
I have been tasked with creating a macro which creates a new workbook wherein each sheet contains the information for one site from the active sheet. The active sheet already has the values sorted by the site such that all information needing to be copied from the active sheet into the new workbook is together.
ATL ATL ATL ATL CEN CEN JCK JCK etc.
There are 8 different sites on the active sheet: ATL, CEN, DAL, HAR, JAS, JCK, VIS, NOV
The macro needs to find the range for all of the data of each site and copy/paste that data into a new workbook such that ATL would have its own sheet, CEN would have its own sheet, and so on. The data ranges from A:R.
So, for example, the macro would find that the last row with ATL in the "B" column is 6095 and would then copy A2:R6095 and insert that data into the new workbook under Sheet 1.
I had some code that I had adapted to select the range for each of them, but the code loops through the entire sheet (which is 44,307 rows long) for each site making it a quite clunky and very slow step in an even longer macro. Since the data is already sorted, I know there must be a way to have the macro stop searching when it reaches data not equal to the data the row before, however, my experience with VBA is limited, and I have been unable to find a solution. Also, the data does not have to be conserved after being sent to the new workbook, if that would speed up the macro.
I have an invoicing spreadsheet, what I want is to have a main working page and then tabs after separated by vendor, but save myself a bunch of manual work in the future.
I want to be able to work in the main tab and the other tabs automatically update with the new info.
So I want the macro to search the text in the first column and if it finds "AIM Land Services Ltd." then I want it to populate the appropriate tab, in this case "AIM", with all the respective information after it ie: A-O. But I dont want it to select any other vendors/ info.
This is what I have:
Sub MoveData() For Each cell In Range("A1:A1") ' Where to look for the date If cell.Value = "AIM Land Services Ltd." Then ' The date Range("A5:O350").Select ' What is the range to copy Selection.Copy ' Copy it Sheets("Invoice_Log").Select ' Select the Sheet it applies to Range("A5").Select ' Where to paste the data
Basically, i have a common workbook template that is used by multiple users across the business to request a cost for numerous new products.
Within the template, there is a common section at the top, where specific project information is entered. There is also a table beneath where 1 or many products can be entered, with specific information relating to that product in the same row.
All the submitted requests are uploaded via an email attachment, to a particular sharepoint directory.
What i would like to do in the master workbook is the following:-
1. Open in turn every uploaded workbook within the sharepoint directory and copy the following cells into the master workbook, each in it's own row (or next available), with the data in adjacent cells.... 1st cell to enter data is $B6.
Cells to copy from each sheet:
Common info contained within cells: $DG$2,$N$11,$N$12,$N$19,$N$13,$AO$7,$AO$8,$AO$9,$AO$10,$AO$11,$AO$12,$AO$12,$AO$13,$AO$14,$BO$8,$BO$11,$BO$14
Product specific info: $U37, $AD37, $AH37, $DH37, $C37, $O37
Depending on the number of products requested, we need to repeat (loop?) until it finds the next blank row in the table. I have hidden a blank row in the table, so there will always be one!
All of the common information needs to be included for each product specific entry.
For each file, once the upload has been completed, i would like the file to be moved to another "archive" directory.
I have attached the template for information. The master workbook is still in development so can't share currently.
I have created a spreadsheet some time ago and have been asked to improve on it but I'm rusty with VBA.
I have an automated ordering system that saves each sent order as the date e.g "05-04-2013.xls" but the management team want a graph with the data for the last 4 weeks compared. I have created a seperate workbook called "consumables report.xls" which has a column with the products listed followed by columns "Quantity" and "cost" which is repeated for the 4 weeks of the month.
I want to add a button to prompt the user to choose the saved order e.g "05-04-2013.xls" (all orders saved in same directory) to copy and paste the quantity and cost columns (c8,D69) into "consumables report.xls". I got this to work earlier but it would only paste the formulas and not the values. So I need
A prompt to open workbook Copy range (c8,d69) Close work sheet Paste special .value (c8,D69)
I dont care if it has to open the workbook to copy the data as this will only be used once a month so it dosnt matter how slow the code is.
What I am trying to do is let a user open 2 different excel files and then copy the values from one of the files into the other. The problem I'm running into is that some of the cells aren't in any kind of order that allows for a range, or at least to my understanding of how a range works in VBA. So from the first sheet I need to take the values of [N53, M53, P53, AC53] pasted into [D26, D27, D28, D29]. I'm thinking that maybe this is something that could be done with an array, but I'm still much of a beginner in programming so I haven't gotten it to work.
I've created a UserForm which the user exclusively uses to interact with a workbook.
The problem is, if the user opens another workbook, it will open in the same Excel "Process" or "Instance" and the user would have to close the UserForm in order to use the other workbook they opened.
In VBA or some obscure application setting, is there a way to force workbooks to open in a new Excel Process (or new "Instance" of Excel)?
Another possibility would be to code something in the UserForm workbook that, on Workbook Open, would start a new separate Excel process....if that's even possible (can VBA execute a system shortcut or system command string?).
I've started this thread a few weeks ago but didn't get any answers on how to solve the problem or if it was even possible to solve. I would like to know if is possible to set a reference to a NOT OPENED workbook. All the code I've tried so far didn't get me anywhere:
