Changing File Names In A Windows Directory

Nov 23, 2009

Using VBA, can anyone please advise if it is possible to change the name of a large number of files in a directory. I want to get each file name as a string, truncate the first few characters, then change the name to the new filename, all without opening any of the files whose names are to be changed.

How To Import All Data In Files In A Directory - File Names Change Each Day

Oct 9, 2008

I have a directory where our customer service people deposit forms each day. The form is always the same, with a number of columns that need to be copied into a master list. From there they are analyzed, sorted, etc, then exported, so the number of rows in that list varies from day to day as well. Is there some way to have VBA import each file sequentially from a directory if I do not have the exact file names?

I am using this import code from a macro to start with:

Sub importdata()
' importdata Macro
With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:=Array(Array( _
"ODBC;DSN=Excel Files;DBQ=C:Documents and SettingsMy DocumentsTender Document(1).xls;DefaultDir=C:Documents a" _

Copy Most Recent File To Another Directory

Sep 11, 2009

I've got this code that will copy data into my worksheet from the most recent .IRP file generated on my C:/ drive. Along with copying the data to my worksheet, I'd like to have a copy of the IRP file copied to a folder on my L:/Drive.

In the code section I've commented out the code that allows the data from the most recent file to be copied to my worksheet. I found code that supposedly will copy a file to a new directory. I want to combine this into my code to allow both to happen. Here's my attempt.

File Copy Macro - With Directory Specified In Workbook Cell

Feb 23, 2010

I am continuing to struggle with my first attempt at a macro, and wonder if someone would mind taking a look to see where I have gone wrong? All I am trying to do is create file copying tool where the user can define the source and destination directory in workbook cells, and assign the macro to a button to complete the copy of all files from source to destination.

The macros do this:

Source and Location directory defined in Sub Archive1.
These are passed to file copy macro Sub ArchiveScript.
This macro checks for presence of destination directory, ensures that the directory backslash is in place, specfies the variables fn and fn2 to make sure the filecopy command copies all files in the directory, and then carries out the filecopy function itself.

However, I am getting two errors from the code that I can't figure out (I am still very much a beginner!)

- Invalid procedure call or element on fn = dir() at the bottom

- The copy still works, but only seems to copy one file from the source to the destination, and not all of them.

Listing Names Of Files In Directory To Excel Worksheet

Aug 1, 2014

I have a music folder on my computer with a TON of music in it. Some folders have sub-folders as well.

I need an easy way to point to a specific folder and pull ALL the names of the files within that folder and all of the sub-folders and put them on an Excel worksheet.

So a brief example...

Main Folder: Now That's What I Call Music
Sub-Folders: Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3, etc
And within each sub-folder is at least 2 more folders named CD1 and CD2.

I want to pull the name of every song in ALL of these folders into one collective list in Excel.

Macro To Batch Copy And Save Worksheets With File Names Listed In Cells?

Oct 23, 2013

I have a workbook that contains worksheets. They are listed as follows:


In cells A1 - A49 I have text. What I would like to do is to have a macro that I can run that will basically copy and save new workbooks with sheets A - G copied over and have the new workbook saved with the file name that I have denoted in cells A1 - A49 on Sheet 1. Also, the macro would ask me where I want to save the new Workbooks.

For example, if this were Sheet 1, Column A then the cells below would be the saved name of the new workbooks and the new workbooks would have Sheets A - G in themRed










One more piece of information, the file that is being copied and saved is large (~80MB). If there is a macro that would allow me to simply "save as' the workbook and the Saved Workbooks would be named using the data in Sheet 1, that would work as well in case copying, pasting, then saving may take more time

Table Names Revert To Cell Names When File Is Reopened

Jan 4, 2013

I have a worksheet with many tables that I use in formulas.

I like tables for a couple reasons, one being the ability to insert/delete rows without affecting the rest of that worksheet row.

Also, automatic copy of formulas/formatting is great.

But, what I really like about tables is the ability to use the naming conventions in formulas.

Problem is when I save this worksheet, after I close it and open it back up, all table references in my formulas have been converted to cell references.



=IF((SUMIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,">"&'Quote 1'!$J$57:$J$60)*'Quote 1'!$G$57:$G$60)+(COUNTIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,""&'Quote 1'!$J$57:$J$60)*'Quote 1'!$G$57:$G$60)+(COUNTIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,""&tblOSSRV[Min Order Cost])*tblOSSRV[Cost / Part])+(COUNTIF(tblFam[[#Data],[Qty by Factor2]],""&tblOSSRV[Min Parts Per Line])*tblOSSRV[Cost / Part])+(COUNTIF(tblFam[[#Data],[Qty by Factor2]],"

Create Array Of File Names/sheet Names

May 1, 2008

Two part question:

1) I'm relatively new to arrays, but what I need to do is generate a list of file names and the sheets within each one. I would like to use an array for this, but since I don't have much experience.... well....that's why I'm here. Can someone point me in the right direction?

2) And the second part of this.... I was planning on using the FileSystemObject to determine the files in a selected folder and loop through that list of files, opening each one and harvesting the required info (file name and all sheet names). Should I use the FSO or is there something built into Excel that might be better (and also limit the number of dependencies for this little "project" of mine).
