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.
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.
I need a macro in a workbook to look at all the files in the same folder that have "*att*.xls" in the name and determine and copy from the range A15:W515 only the rows that have data in at least columns A, C and D. Each file will vary as to how many rows there will be and there are more than the files with "*att*.xls" in the folder. The data will be on the only worksheet in each file and the worksheet is named "G2WAttendee_xls" the data from all the files need to be copied to the file called "Consolidated webinar reports.xls" (I am using Excel 2003) and to a sheet called "Attendance Data" and added to the end of the last paste.
At the start of the macro the current file "Consolidated webinar report.xls" should be saved to a sub folder of the current directory and have the date saved added to the name. The sub folder is called "Completed reports". The data in the original file on worksheet "Attendance Data" should be deleted.
At the end of the process all the files that have had data copied from them should be moved to the sub folder "Attendance reports consolidated" (This could be done as each file is closed if that is easier).
I have headings in row 1 of the "Attendance Data" worksheet that match the headings in the various files in the folder (which will always be in row 14 of the individual "*att*.xls" files).
The folder with all the files and the "Consolidated webinar report.xls" file is at path "Z:P and S MEvaluationsWebinar series 2012-13TB".
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. _____________________________________

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 list of excel and word files in a folder...200+ of them. They all have the Author, Subject and Category populated under the File- Properties menu. From browsing through the site, I came across bits that suggest it is possible to do the following: Code that will run through a list of word/excel files in a designated folder, and extract the Excel(or Word) filename, Author, Subject and Category into a new excel file as a list?....................
I need a macro which checks for next available number from list of filenames in a folder. Then it returns that value to one predefined cell in a new document (here Untitled.xls). For example:
has the following files: Untitled.xls - read only abc-09-001.xls abc-09-002.xls abc-09-003.xls abc-09-004.xls
Next available filename should be "abc-09-005" and macro returns that value to predefined cell in a new document (Untitled.xls). There should be NO saving at this point whatsoever. Macro simply picks the next value from a filelist. As you've noticed the value has some constants too. New document doesn't know the last picked value before macro is active (predefined cell should be empty at startup).
I am adding a list of file names to a combobox list and want to filter this by adding only the filenames that have been modified today. I have used the FileDateTime(Fil) but it leaves the combobox empty. I am using the code below. how to add only the files modified today.
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.
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
i'd like to be able to import a list of file names from a folder. sounds fairly straight forward to me, but example:
folder a has 10 files in it (let's say PDFs - numbered 1 through 10). I'd like to be able to open the spread sheet, and see the file names in column b. ideally, i'd also like subfolders to be listed, in the next column. but, let's start with just this.
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).
Am working on a procedure to open all files in a folder and copy some data from the files into another workbook (master). I have this piece of the code. However, I also need to get the filename (from which data was copied) and paste this into an adjacent cell in the master (so I know which file each data point came from).
I am trying to open a website, then for excel to download the csv file, then for it to save it in a specific folder under a specific name and file format (excel).
I am successful at opening the website with the following code, but how to do the rest.

I wish for a macro to look in to a directory which remains constant, but then looks within a folder which is specified via a cell value in order to load a specific sheet from each file in to the workbook I am currently using. I wish for the loading to be done without having to open the workbooks manually, so something which opens them copies the data from the sheet specified and then closes.
This data is then to be pasted in to a new sheets within my workbook which are named after the file names that it pulls the "dump" sheet from.
As a side note, I will be using these sheets to produce calculations hopefully automatically as soon as they are loaded. They all have the same "shape" but contain differing data. Will it be easier in the long run for me to use this method of pasting data to new sheets named as their file names assuming there will be around 25 "dump" sheets needing to be loaded or would i be better having them paste all to one sheet just underneath each other with a couple of rows separating them?
provide me a code for extracting data and outputting it into individual worksheets situated within the excel workbook file. I am wondering what the code would be if the data were extracted to individual text files, individual workbooks or *.prn files?
For i = 2 To Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row Set ws = Worksheets.Add(After:=Worksheets(Worksheets.Count)) ws.Name = wsraw.Cells(i, "D") With ws .Range("A1") = wsraw.Cells(i, "D") .Range("A2").Resize(2) = wsraw.Cells(i, "A") .Range("B2").Resize(2) = wsraw.Cells(i, "B") .Range("C2") = 0 .Range("C3") = 1000 .Range("A4") = -999 End With Next
My company use a program called Bartender which is a barcode printing program. Bartender has the ability to extract information from an Excel sheet which is really useful and prevents repetetive keying in of information. We have found that if you simply print the Excel sheet when Bartender next uses the file it says it is corrupt and simply copying the data into a new spreadsheet and resaving it as the same name does not resolve this issue.
Public Sub ListMyFiles() Dim fso As New FileSystemObject Dim fso_Folder As Folder Dim fso_File As File Dim file_count As Long
Set fso_Folder = fso.GetFolder("S:SHARED All of TransportationTraffic AssessmentMultiway Warrants") file_count = 1 For Each fso_File In fso_Folder.Files file_count = file_count + 1 Cells(file_count, 1).Value = fso_File.Name Next fso_File Set fso = Nothing End Sub This works great, but is there a way for the macro to recognize the file names that have already been added to the spread sheet and only return new ones that have been added to the folder?
I have a variable list. Each column will be 250 digits and numbers of rows will be variable. I want a macro to import a text file from a specific folder into a sheet without split it to columns. So we will work only in column A
Then macro will find B1002 wording in A1. if it is exist, it will copy the next 36 digits after B1002 wording if not then it will search A2 row. The next step will be to search and find another wording "B1001" if it finds it will replace copied 36 digits text. If it can not find B1001 wording it will go to upper row and search B1001 wording here and paste the text. This will go on till row shows #END. This means it reached the end of the list. And then macro will save this file as text file to another folder.
So macro will go to beginning to open other file in the folder and this will go on till last file in the folder.
This is the logic of the macro. Here is the sample of what I want.
Want to do something *almost* exactly like a previous post but that post is now closed. Extract Each Sheet To Text File & Save as Sheet Name .txt` I want to extract data from individual worksheets from a workbook in excel to individual text files with the **same name as the original excel file** plus incrementing suffix.
don't delete - this is not a duplicate post. Previous code 1) creates text files with "sheet name" as was the original post's intent (not "file name") and 2) it does not iterate through each sheet (only processes Sheet1 regardless of selected sheet in the workbook)
I have a report that is downloaded off a company database and creates a report that is attached. Is there a way to create a macro to extract some data that I need and leave the rest:
I need to keep and everything in the assigned column PB ID (A3), Issue (B3), Group Code (J3), Group Name (K3), Sub group id (L3), Sub Group Name (M3),Subject ID (L3), Subject Group Name (M3), Subject ID (N3), Subject (O3), PB Status (P3), CPM Report Name (T3), CPM Profile Name (U3), Profile State (V3).
The worksheet's name changes so I can't reference the worksheet. Attached is a copy of what I get when downloaded.
