Input Info From All Files Within Folder?

Mar 31, 2012

master spreadsheet resides in x directory, up to 100 individuals upload a file into that directory weekly. The uploaded files are from the exact same template, but file-names are slightly different

Is there a way to to extrapolate the data in specific cells from each sheet, to the master sheet. Ideally separated by date of submission (or a date supplied from within the uploaded sheet itself)

I'm guessing at using a variable like "*" in the file name

- but that would include the master file? causing duplicate data

- what about duplicate submission dates?

Retrieve Info On How Many Files There Are Named XX In A Folder

Feb 16, 2009

I have several excel files in a folder, and they are named:

AA v.5
AA v.6
AA v.7
AA v.8
BB v.5
BB v.7
CC v.8
CC v.6

The "AA" and "BB" are names of who created it and v.5 are the week it was created.

What I would like to do is in an Excel file be able to choose to retrieve information about for example how man files with v.5 in its name.

OR information about all files with "BB v." in its name (to see all files created bye BB)

Or "BB v.4" (all files created bye BB in week 4)
Or "BB v.4"+"BB v.5"+"CC v.6"

The reason for this is that I would like to be able to create statistics from this so that I can see how it has changed like in a graph. So that I can see the difference and compare how many files BB and CC have created and which week.

Input Box To Create And Input Info Into A Formula Which Then Populates A Cell With A Value

Jul 24, 2014

I am trying to create a macro which gives me an input box. I need to enter 2 numbers into the input box. It would be as follows:

Input Box Msg 1 - "What is your labor cost?" (NUM1)
Input Box Msg 2 - "What is your productivity rate?" (NUM2)

Then I need the macro to take this info and enter it into a formula which changes according to the row which you are on. (I need the macro to work based on which ever cell I currently have selected). The formula would be this if I currently had a cell on row 10 selected:

=(NUM1*(NUM2*$H10))/$H10

So, if I currently had cell L10 selected, and I ran the macro and put 100 in for "NUM1" and 10 for "NUM2" and my sheet had 20 in cell H10, then the macro would enter the number 1,000 into cell L10. If I had L500 selected, then the macro would enter the final number into cell L500 based on what value H500 contained.

Excel 2003 :: Extract Variable Rows Of Cells From Files In A Folder To Existing File In Folder

Mar 15, 2013

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".

Open Files In Folder- Wait 30 Seconds Then Close The Files

Jul 5, 2007

I want to allow users to place files (.jpg, .tif, .pdf, .pps etc) into a network folder and then have my program open each file and display it for 30 seconds then close the file and the application before opening the next file.

1. Set up a loop to get a directory listing of the folder and write the listing to a text file.

2. Open up the text file and get the next filename in it

3. Open the file in the associated application

4. Wait for 30 seconds (or some period of time) and then close the file

5. Repeat steps 2-4

DoIt = 1
While DoIt = 1
Open "C:TempList.txt" for output as #1
Print #1, Files In Folder
Close #1

Open "C:TempList.txt" for input as #2
while not eof(2)
Line input #2, MyFile
Display MyFile on screen
Wait for 30 seconds
Close MyFile and MyApplication that opened it
wend
Close #2

I can get the directory listing just fine with no problems

I can open the files in the associated application just fine with no problems.

with closing the application after 30 seconds or some period of time.

I need some code that will allow me to easily send it a filename and it will know how to close the file and the application that opened it.

Files Saved To Program Files Folder, Open As Read Only

Feb 8, 2009

I have an Excel application (Excel 2003) which is stored in the default Program Files folder by the Installer; for example: c:program fileszxchello.xls. The problem I am running into is this file opens as Read Only in Vista and this is interfering with the running of the application. There is no problem opening the file normally in Windows XP.

I have been able to narrow down the cause of this to the User Account Control system in Vista - if I turn OFF User Account Control, the Excel file opens normally and my application functions normally. Is there another option to open the Excel file without turning OFF User Account Control because some users may find it unacceptable to turn OFF this security feature. Ofcourse, one option is to install the application in another location, outside the Program Folder, and the file would open normally, but the Packaging Wizard that I am using to package the application does not allow me to install the application in any other location and thus, the application installs in the Program Folder and I am running into this problem of the Exel file opening as Read Only. Is there a way out of this situation where I can open the file normally (not as Read Only)?

Convert All CSV Files In A Folder To Excel Files?

Apr 8, 2014

I is it possible to convert all comma separated text files in a single folder in to excel files. But the requirement is to have 2 sheets in each new file. first to be the full file - with all columns, and in the second sheet to keep only colum A B D G H K L M O P R S T V W from the first sheet. The second sheet name must be the same as the first one but without the first "wlist_" in the name.

One more thing. The third column in the second is called "COUL". there are short letters for colors in french

can they be converted with the sort in English like it goes:

NO = B
BA = W
RG = R
SO = P
JA = Y
BE = L
VE = GY
GR = G
VI = V
MA = BR
BJ = TA
OR = O

Here is a link to the both CSV and an example excel file with the end result. In this example i haven`t change the shorts for the colors. It takes me too much time with the find and replace function. And at the moment i`m really pushed from time.

Auto Input Info From A List

Feb 10, 2009

I am having difficulty with this formula. In the attached spreadsheet. I want to just input the item number in column A, manually. From there I want it to take the information from the hidden list and fill in the rest of the fields. Example. I input in A4-2664, I want it to search the list for 2664 and take the corrisponding information. It would take the information from M5, O5, and Q5 and place that in C4, E4, G4. I place spaces in the hidden list to make the format the same.

Getting Info From A List And Input Then Transferring Data

Mar 24, 2007

a user inputs the drawing number and revision in a box on the first sheet in the workbook. Once that is done, the user then selects the type of drawing from the drop-down menu, once "Submit" is clicked it takes that info and puts the information in the next available cell for the other worksheets (if that worksheet calls out for that certain part).

I've been having trouble trying to figure out how to be able to accomplish this task.

If you have any ideas, that'd be great.

I've attached a basic worksheet I drew up to give you a better idea of what I'm looking to do.

Forgot to mention that there are totals involved! The "destination" worksheets have set totals for each drawing type, so what also has to be taken into consideration is that the specific drawing needs to have the correct total beside it. I created a "Totals" worksheet to show what drawings are what totals for each cell. Realizing this may always change or be updated, I created a seperate worksheet to pull all the numbers off of. I thought this might be easier rather than going in and changing the coding each time.

Multiply By Info In Different Columns - Selected By Input In Cell

Mar 19, 2014

I'm trying to make a sheet to calculate my taxes. I would like to keep tax rates from previous year(s), and have them applied based on which year I input in a cell..

Let say that in cell B1 I write year 2013

In cell G1 I have year 2013 and in cells G2:G7 I have tax rates from year 2013.
In cell H1 I have year 2014 and in cells H2:H7 tax rates from year 2014

In cell B17 to B20 I would like to make a formula that multiplies cell B11 or B12 with information found in either column G or H based on input in B1.

I have attached a spread sheet as example.

I know I can make a formula based on IF(B1=2013;G*;IF(B2=2014;H*;etc..

Then say I enter "1" in sheet1 cell B2 goto sheet2 and put A2 into A3 and so on.

Depending on the number entered on sheet1 column B, the Macro duplicates the info from Column A in that row into column A on sheet2. ??

I want to write a macro that will open each workbook and then copy the impt part out of each file and then paste into a master record for that category. I will probably end up with 20 different files (age, procedure, etc). Any idea of the best way to do this?

Search Folder For Files Containing "Temp", Delete Files

Jun 26, 2008

Is there a code that will search a pre-determined folder for all .xls files containing the word "Temp", and deleting those files?

Example:
In the root of drive M, I have several Excel files. Anytime one of the original tracking logs is opened, a temp file of that log is automatically created. I would like to automatically search the drive and delete all files containin the word "Temp".

I've attached a picture of the directory tree, in case that will help. The file will always be named "PO Response Tracking - Temp#######.xls", with ###### representing a series of either 5 or 6 numbers.

Open All Files From A Folder

Aug 4, 2009

I have created a Spreadsheet that does all of the calculations, analysis, graphs, etc. that i need; however every time I wish to use this spreadsheet I need to first open up a spreadsheet with data, copy it and then paste it into the original spreadsheet. While this is not horrible, it is quite tedious to do several thousand times.

Thus, I was wondering if it were possible to create a Macro that would open up all files in a specific folder, then select each one and paste the relevant data into my original spreadsheet. I know this possible for specific files; for example, I have created a Macro that will select files data.xls, dats1.xls, data2.xls, and paste these into the spreadsheet, but I was wondering if there was a way to generalize this so that it will simply open every file regardless of the name or how many files there are in the specific folder.

I am trying to come up with a macro that is able to open a .htm file in Excel, perform a set of code, close the file, then repeat the process with the next .htm file in the folder. I found the following post which has helped me thus far, but there is something that is not allowing Excel to open the .htm files even though there is no problem opening them in Excel manually or with another macro I've made. Here is the link to the set of code I'm currently working with:

But the "ofile" doesnt contain the file type. Is there away to adjust this code so it recognises what the file type is?
