Macro Rename Excel Files Based On Cell Contents?

Jun 23, 2014

Can a macro rename Excel files based on a cell's contents? The problem maybe that I download these files en masse from a website and they all have 54-character long randomly generated filenames which I can rename by selecting all and then use the rename function to get a series of filenames like a, a(2), a(3), ... but I would rather have the files renamed based on the text that exists in cell B1 which is the title of the report. I also read somewhere that this kind of macro only works if the tabs have names like "Sheet 1"

Rename Sheet And Hide / Unhide Based On Cell Contents?

Feb 10, 2014

I have a master sheet where users can change the name of 20 different sheets in the workbook by changing a cell value on the master sheet. Here is the code:

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rCell As Range
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub

[Code]....

The next step which I am having issues with is hiding the sheets. I want all sheets in the workbook to be hidden except for the master. I only want the other sheets to be visble if the user inputs a name on the master sheet.

So if the cell contents on the master sheet, say "B9", is blank, the sheet in the workbook that corresponds to that cell will remain hidden. If the user inputs anything, say "Sheet1", in cell "B9" on the master sheet, I want that sheet to become unhidden and to be named "Sheet1"

Rename Files Based On List

May 26, 2013

I have several .mp3 files in a directory that I'd like to rename based on a list.

Currently I have a sheet with two columns starting at "A2" and "B2"

Column A contains the file path and old name (without extension) ie: C:RenameFromListOldName_01
Column B contains the file path and new name (without extension) ie: C:RenameFromListNewName_01

I've modified the code below (obtained here on these forums) to work with mp3 files, which renames them, but it also corrupts my files.

VB:
Sub Rename_Files_from_List()
Dim oFiles As Range, fPath As String
Set oFiles = Range("A2", Range("A65536").End(xlUp))
fPath = Range("D2").Value

[Code] .....

For instance, if cell a1 has the value Test, the worksheet should be named Test. If I change the value of the cell to say Test 1, the worksheet should automatically rename itself to Test 1.

Macro To Rename Files In A Folder

Jun 16, 2014

Macro to rename files

I have following problem, discribed also in the link above.

I need a vba code to

- choose a folder instead of a file
- find all the files in the chosen folder with name that starts with "sz" and end with "_d"
- rename those files by replacing the first 5 numbers that follow sz with 5 different numbers that the user can choose e.g. through a user form.

I imagine the user to open the excel file, click on a form thats linked to a macro. The macro will call a userform and ask the user to choose the folder and type in a textbox the 5 new numbers.

I need the code that will be pasted behind the "OK" button in the userform.

Is this possible with vba?

Here a code i found in the link mentioned above, that i have applied and works - but needs to be modified to meet my needs:
Sub GetImportFileName()

Dim Filt As String
Dim FilterIndex As Integer
Dim Title As String
Dim FileName As Variant
Dim newname As String

[Code].....

Rename Multiple Files In A Folder Macro

Jun 11, 2009

I have 400ish departmental budget files in a folder that I need to upload to a Sharepoint doc library. The files in the folder will have to exactly match the files we already have set up in sharepoint in order to upload them to the sharepoint site. As it stands now there is only one consistency between the sharepoint files and the budget files in the folder, which is the department number (which every file in both begins with).

I'm thinking some sort of macro will let me insert a sheet into each of the files in the budget folder, which would have a formula that pulls the department number from a certain sheet in the file, and produce the file name I want into a certain cell. Then I would like a macro that goes into each file and renames it based on that cell. I'd like to know if this is possible and if there may be a better way to do it.

Dim oldPath As String, newPath As String
Dim LastRow As Long
Const PW As String = "Password"

[Code] ..........

Handler:
MsgBox oldPath & " cannot be found."

But for some reason it is always pulling an error on the last item in the list, even if the file is there.

Excel 2010 :: Rename Files In Multiple Folders And Copy To New Folder

Sep 22, 2013

For the last year I have been downloading cash register X1 and Z1 files onto an SD card. Each night's files (X1 & Z1) are stored in a new folder with the naming convention "RP + [DATE]", (EX: RP120910, [YYMMDD]). I have 265 folders! I need to go through each folder, select the Z1 file (I don't care about the X1, X2 or Z2 files) and rename each with the following naming convention: "Z1 + folder_name + .xls". For Example: Folder RP120910 contains the Z1 file named "Z1_T1729.ECR". After renaming, the file should be "Z1RP120910.xls". As the VBA code loops through each subfolder, selecting and renaming the Z1 files, I would like the new files to be placed into a new folder named "Z1Files". Note: All subfolders are currently in a directory named "RegisterFiles". I am using Excel 2010.

Excel 2010 :: Copy Contents Of Column Based On Value In Another Cell

Jul 30, 2013

I'm using excel 2010 and windows XP with a moderate amount of experience tinkering with macro programming. I know what I need is very doable but I can't get my head around what the code would look like. I must not be wording my searches correctly because most of what I'm getting for results are iterative programs based on a cells value which isn't what I need.

I'm trying to build a macro that will check a cell (C3) and based on the contents of that cell copy a column (I) to one of 12 different columns (K:V). So if the value in C3 is 1 it should copy I to K, if the value is 2 it should copy I to L, and so on.

Copy Based On Cell Contents Macro

May 13, 2013

Basically lets say I have in cell A1 to A10 floor access data i.e. Users who used their ID cards to access a room.

Now the data always starts with either Rejected or Admitted then the user's name and then the card number and the access floor etc. the card currently has.

What I am looking for is that the macro should first check if the cell has Rejected or Admitted written in it - this I can do myself using =Left(A1,8) which should give me the helper column I need.

Then based on this I want it to only copy the name of the individual i.e. it should look in the cell and only copy whatever is written between "Rejected" and "(Card". The cell data is something like this:

Rejected Doe, John (Card #123456) at ABC 123 Floor1/Floor2/Floor3/Floor4 Door 1 [In] [Clearance]

Excel 2007 :: Saving File With Name Based On Cell Contents With Custom Formatting

Aug 16, 2012

I have a worksheet that has a number in cell K5 - the number is generated on "file open" code and is custom formatted as "TN"0000. Thus 1 appears as TN0001, 2 as TN0002 and so on. I am trying to save a copy of the workbook based on the this cells contents i.e. TN0001.xls, TN0002.xls etc. but the files are saved as 1.xls or 2.xls. The code I am using is

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="C:DataExcelFORMSDelivery Note" & Range("K5") & ".xls", _
FileFormat:=xlNormal, ReadOnlyRecommended:=True, CreateBackup:=False

I know I must make reference to format within the above....but how? if try something like

" & Format(Range("K5").Value, ("TN""0000")) & ".xls"

I get TN00000.xls

Return Contents Of 1 Cell Based On Contents Of Another Cell?

Mar 12, 2014

I thought this was a pretty simple formula but I am having difficulty creating it. I am attaching a little test spreadsheet. Sheet 1 is where the data will be entered. The Reimbursed column has a drop down choice of yes or no. The next 2 columns are the cost of registration and the cost of accommodations. On sheet 2 is where I would like the formulas. So in cell A4 I would like a formula that says if B3 on sheet 1 is Yes populate this cell with the contents of Cell C3 only, B4 of sheet 2 would then be B3 if A3 on sheet 3 is Yes and so on with the Not reinbursed if sheet 1 the Reimbursed column is no.
