Macro To Pull Out Data From Word File

Mar 4, 2007

I need to pull out data from a word file(can open in excel 2003) which has several different rows with data in a certain format each time.

I want to take the data from sheet #1 in the format

________

where the underline always equals an 8 digit number that directly follows that unique text(no spaces)

and pull out all the 8 digit numbers from the sheet and put them into sheet #2 that my macro creates.

Also the additional rub is that I need to pull only the unique 8 digit numbers as there will be several repeats.

Macro To Pull Text File- Format And Save

Jun 29, 2007

What I am looking to do is create a Dos.bat file to be run in the middle of the night that opens Excel. From there I will need Excel to open a .txt file from a specific folder, format the file, then re-save as an .xls file.

Each of the .txt files in the specific folder is named like the following:
BCKLOG_062807
BCKLOG_062707

and a new file is being generated to the folder each night (with the new date in the filename).

Is there a way I can use the macro to loop through only the new files being placed in the folder, since the old files will already have their .xls counterpart saved ???

If this is not a clear enough description, please let me know and I will attempt to explain better.

Pull The Entire Row If It Finds The Specific Word

Sep 23, 2009

The following sub will look in the file ("FY09 SOF"), in column "A", search for the strings that begin with "2109", "3009", or ends in "-1", and copy the entire row. It will then paste these in the file ("FY09 PR Log Blank").

I also need it to look in column "C" in the ("FY09 SOF") file and pull the entire row if it finds the word "Payroll".

For some reason it will pull everything needed except the "Payroll" rows. What am I doing wrong?

Sub get_data()
Dim wb As Workbook, wbDest As Workbook
Dim ws As Worksheet, wsDest As Worksheet
Dim lngCalc As Long
Dim FoundCells As Range
Dim FoundCell As Range

Set wb = Workbooks("FY09 SOF")
Set wbDest = Workbooks("FY09 PR Log Blank")
Set wsDest = wbDest.Worksheets("Paste all here, then sort")

Pull In Range From Closed File

Feb 14, 2008

I'm trying to find a way to import data from an external excel file that the end-user will ultimately end up choosing using the application. getopenfilename dialogue. I'm able to sucessfully open the file, but what I'm really trying to do is import data from one specific column within the file, preferably without the source spreadsheet popping up.

So, is this possible to do with VBA? Also, will I run into any issues if I try to import from an Excel 2.1 file to an Excel 2003 file using VBA? Finally, I need to be able to import one file, and then be able to add to that an import from another file. I'm thinking that this could be accomplished using a variant variable, but is there already a function within Excel so that I won't have to create my own add-to function.

I have supplied the code that I currently have. I have it so that 'WholeLine' contains the entire line. Can I manipulate that with something like Cells (myR, 3).Value = WholeFile(?).

Vlookup: Pull From Files Into A Master File

Sep 11, 2009

I have six files that are formatted the same(fld1-1.xlsx, fld1-2.xlsx...). Each file contains an I.D. number (random 25 digit number) in column A and a note (1-9) in column B. The only thing that changes between files is the note column. I want to pull from these six files into a master file. When all six files are combined the note column in the master file is complete, there are no duplicates. Because a blank vlookup returns a zero, could I use an IF formula. Something like IF VLOOKUP FROM data01(ISNUMBER(0), then vlookup in file data02. IF VLOOKUP FROM data02(ISNUMBER(0), then vlookup in file data03.

Formula To Pull Information From Database File

Apr 26, 2012

I need building a formula to pull information from a database file. The purpose is to try to interpret the data so that I can analyze a time period along with it's content. I don't know how best to explain it. Basically I have a table and I want it to pull information based on 3 criteria: time, type, and total. I would like for the formula to identify a time frame, then identify a type, and then take the totals and add them together.

Time / Type / Total
11:31 /1 / 4
11:43 / 1 / 6
12:04 / 2 / 1
12:31 / 1 / 3

Time / Type / Total
11:30 - 12:00 / 1 / 10
12:00 - 12:30 / 1 / 3

The top is the database and the bottom is basically what I want to happen on the other table. Pretend the / and dividers for each column.

The range would be for 7 days and would have to be able to choose a few columns off this report.

Deleting Characters From A Word File

Nov 10, 2006

I'm trying to automate a redundant task. I have several Word files in one central folder. I need to open each file, remove all paragraph marks (via find/replace all), copy the result, and paste it into an Excel sheet. This process will be repeated for each file in the folder.

The code I have is almost there, however, I can't get it to do the find/replace. Below is an extract of my code for the Word application part. The code for the copy and paste will be inserted after the replace action works:

Dim Wapp As Object
Dim i As Integer

WorksheetsLocation = TextBox1.Value ' this is the folder location brought in from an input box

On Error Resume Next
Set wApp = GetObject(, "Word.Application")
If Err.Number 0 Then 'Word isn't already running
Set wApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
End If

Storing MS Word File Inside Spreadsheet?

Mar 14, 2014

Our client uses an Excel spreadsheet that we provide to adjudicate/comment on our delivered products (primarily documents and reports). The spreadsheet has columns for:

DefectCode, SectionPage, Comment, FinalDisposition, FinalComment.

At the end of the process of client meetings and revisions, we must generate an MS Word-formatted report. I've written a macro to parse the comments and columns and generate a mostly-formatted Word document. What's missing are the corporate headers, footers, logos -- the standard template or basic document stuff that all of the details would fill in. For now, I auto-gen a Word document and merge it by hand into the corporate template.

So my question is: if I want to "include" a corporate Word template with the spreadsheet, can I bundle it with the workbook somehow or must it always remain a separate file?

My current thinking is that since a *.xlsm file is really a ZIP file underneath, could I store the Word template there where it would effectively be hidden from the user? Or what is the best way to bundle an extra file like this with my workbook app?

VBA To Create Word File And Add A Custom Property To It

Apr 1, 2009

I have an Excel sheet with a long list of data. A short example is shown below:

Section | Title | Item
1 | INTRODUCTION | a
1.1 | title2 | b
1.2 | title3 | c
1.2.1 | title4 | d
1.2.2 | title5 | e

I made a VBA macro in Excel that runs through this list and creates a new Word file for each item. The filename of the document is based on the data in the Excel file (section and title). Now I would like to add a custom property to each of the newly created Word files, i.e. the value in the 'item' column. Does anyone of you know how I should do this? Or should it be better if I write a macro in Word that runs through the Excel data to create the word files? Here is the code I use to generate the word files:

Macro To Pull Information From One Tab To Another

I am trying to put together a macro to pull data from one tab to another. The key here is that I want it to take the entire row.

Basically it will look something like this:

As someone goes down the rows of the checklist putting x's in the boxes that need one (there is a column set aside for that), that box will turn red.

That part is easy and done.

What I cant figure out how to do next is to automatically have a copy made of the row with the red cell and send them to another document.

Macro To Pull Data From Web?

Oct 18, 2004

I want to create a macro that will automatically pull data from the web by simply pressing a macro button. I assume that this would be an easy task if the data is from a website with a specific URL such as [URL]

However, there are times when someone must enter data into the web to pull a specific report that does not have a unique URL. Is there anyway to create data fields in excel that would allow an individual to type in specific information (name, report period, etc.), and then press a macro button that would go out to the web, enter the information automatically, and export it as an excel file. I realize that this is probably substatially more difficult than my first question.

Macro To Pull Certain Cells

Need to create a macro that pulls certain data of a certain varying limit to different sheets, e.g. I have a sheet titled 'Data Dump' which contains lots of information specific to certain models of a product. I would like two other worksheets, one called '1' and another called '2' to pull the following information:

Worksheet 1 should pull data in columns A, B and I (in data dump) based on whether column H in Data Dump is = 1 to the total of 100 (i.e. 100 rows of information. (here an if statement would pull 100 and include empty rows, I do not want empty rows). Worksheet 2 should pull data in columns A, B and I based on whether Column H in Data Dump is = 2 to the total of 50 (i.e. 50 rows of information.

Create PDF File From Word Doc Inside A Folder With ID And Ref Number From Cells In Excel

Jul 31, 2014

I have an excel database where I register cases. I have in it a button that creates a folder with and ID nr that is in column A (I create new ID nr in the next row, when I press the button it will create a folder with that ID nr and inserts a blank word document in it). We have a template that we copy to the folder (depending what type of case). The idea would be that once the template is filled in and ready to print, It would take the values from the ID nr and a reference number a few cells to the right. Is it possible to tell excel to open the word document in the folder and create a PDF version with the ID nr and reference number. (there are only 2 templates, so the macro would have to look for one of the two in the folder)

The name of the templates are: "Standard" and "Other".

I guess the best way to start maybe this would be that I select the cell with the ID nr and then press a macro button to have this done.

One thing that needs to be done, is to put a copy in the same folder and another in a second folder called "Binder" in my documents folder.
