Retrieving Data From Other Excel Workbooks With Various Names (without VB)

May 28, 2014

I would like to create a summary for the ordering history of each customers. The IT department will facilitate us to generate some raw data and I want to retrieve the data to the summary excel when I type the Ref No of the customer.

For example, I have the following raw data generated, in which the file name is "A123456":

Ref No


And I want to extract the data to the following summary. When I type "A123456" in the field "Ref Number" in this summary, it will automatically retrieve data from the corresponding raw file:

Searching Multiple Worksheets And Retrieving Data

Aug 27, 2009

I have two lists. One is a database (Worksheet 2) with a lot of information, and another is the list (worksheet 1) I need to fill up the data for. What I want to do is to search for the names that are in worksheet 1 in worksheet 2, and if there is a match, retrieve the missing data in those rows, and paste it back into worksheet 1. For example:
Worksheet 1: Joe
Tim 23

Worksheet 2: Alex 45
Joe 23
Mark 47
Tim 44
Matt 24

I basically want it to be able to search for the corresponding name, and then pull the number associated with it.

Retrieving Textbox Data From Multiple Worksheets Into List On Mastersheet?

Sep 20, 2013

I am trying to pull data from multiple textboxes on multiple worksheets and compile it into a list on a mastersheet. I have searched multiple forums and I have been unable to piece together anything. I have attached an example workbook of the data that I am trying to compile. I am trying to pull the data for the textbox next to NAME, SS#, and SCHED. I have tried recording a macro for 1 sheet and then modifying the macro to work for on all worksheets but failed miserably.

Data Validation With Multiple Info Displayed

Feb 26, 2014

I have multiple worksheets with different data which are as follows:

Sheet 1 - Pricing
Sheet 2 - Selections
Sheet 3 - Summaries (created later with a pivot table)

For the most part I have the sheet working as I want it to, the issue I have is on the selections sheet. The Selections sheet has data validation linked to the All Data sheet via a drop down list, what I would like it to be able to do is to display in the dropdown list 2 separate columns from the All Data list rather than just the primary list.

Allow me to elaborate:

Sheet 1:
Column A; Socket, Socket, Socket, Cable, Cable
Column B, Supplier A, Supplier B, Supplier C, Supplier A, Supplier B

So just to confirm I would like to be able to select the item from column A but it also display (while selecting), column B side by side so that a comparison can be made as part of the selection process.

Consolidate All Data In Multiple Worksheets Of Multiple Workbooks In One Master File?

Jul 12, 2014

I need a macro that would consolidate all data in multiple worksheets of multiple workbooks in one Master file.

All the workbooks will be in one particular folder. The macro should search for data in all the workbooks and consolidate it in one master excel workbook.

I am currently using both excel 2007 and excel 2010. This macro would really reduce manual work as currently consolidating data from 45 to 50 sheets takes an ample amount of time...

Summing Data From Multiple Workbooks Based On Multiple Criteria

May 14, 2014

I track distribution using 1 workbook for each sales rep. Each workbook has a separate worksheet (scorecard) for each of their locations showing which of our products are used in that location, for various functions. Each of the locations has a segment (bar, nightclub, casual dining, etc.), and a class (AA, A, B, etc.). All of the scorecards are identical, and are in the same file folder on our shared drive.


Location A Class:AA Segment: Sports Bar Rep: John Smith

Product: Product X Product Y Product Z
Well: 1 0 0
Back Bar: 0 1 0
Cocktail Menu: 0 1 1

I was unable to find an HTML maker so this is not an actual sample but what I'm looking at. The above data indicates that for location A (Sports Bar, Class AA), Product X is used as the well, Product Y is on their back bar and their cocktail menu, and Product Z is not used at this location at all.

I need to set up an analytic workbook where I can sum data based on multiple and grouped criteria, and for multiple reps ie- display a scorecard that shows totals for nightclubs and sports bars, class AA, A, and B, for a particular rep; OR display a scorecard that shows totals for nightclubs, class A for a group of reps. Ideally I would like to do this using drop down menus that allow the user to select multiple criteria in each of the drop downs, having the data auto-populate based on those selections.

Retrieving Multiple Solutions With Vlookup

Feb 11, 2010

I am attaching a file that I have just really been struggling with. I have been through multiple forums and ideas but just can not seem to find one that will completely resolve my issues. There are two tabs in the spreadsheet. I want to bring information from the detailed one over to a summary. Please take into consideration that this has been extremely simplified from my original information just so that I could post it. I am not going to use pivot tables, as this is going to be distributed to others at some point so most information will be hidden except the summary. The product and type are normally coming from a drop down list also. The summary format is by request of management so not much choice in changing it.

Merge Data From Multiple Workbooks Stacking Data Into Master Workbook

Aug 2, 2013

I have three source workbooks that needed to be consolidated into a master workbook pasting the data with values & formatting.

The Master workbook also contains 6 additional worksheets that link to the data pulled in from the source files.
My question is how do I write the code so the source files populate the master in a specific order.
For example, the 3 source files are named "Central" "NED" and "WEST" and I need them to populate the master workbook in that order.

This is the code I am using to consolidate the data:

Option Explicit
Sub ConsolidateSheetsFromWorkbooks()
'Author: Jennifer Starr
'Date: 7/12/2013
'Summary: Open all files in a folder and merge data (stacked) on all

Pull Cell Info From Workbooks In Server Directory And Paste Values In Master Sheet

Oct 3, 2012

I have been trying for months to get this to work by altering code from similar requests I've hunted down on google to no avail.

I am looking to have a "Master" sheet that is populated by data from 30+ individual excel workbooks. Each workbook is contained on a server in a directory "O:JobsJobs In Progress." In that directory are subfolders (named in sequence "C12000 Job1", "C12001 Job2", etc) which contain the actual workbook (Named according to number ie. "C12000 Jobinfo").

I would like this "Master" to automatically pull specific values from each C1200* workbook and paste them in a designated cell so that I can quickly look at specific information contained in each workbook. Each C1200* workbook is constructed the same way.

Short Example of C1200* workbook in which data will be pulled from:

Job Number
Abe Lincoln
Thomas Edison
Contract Date

Pulling Up Data From Multiple Workbooks

Dec 8, 2009

I have a folder which contains a number of Workbooks which were all built using the same template, therefore the layout and formatting is identical in each one. Cells A1:B15 of these workbooks contain information which I am attempting to extract.

I have been asked to build a worksheet with two cells for user's input. The first cell is the 'Directory location cell' and the second cell is the 'Policy Number Cell.' The policy number is found in Cell A2 of every workbook.

The idea in mind is that the user inputs the directory location in the first cell, the policy number they are searching for in the second cell and then excecutes the macro. The Sheet would then return all of the valuable information from whichever workbook contained it.

I think I need to compose a macro which trawls through the folder specified in the 'Directory Cell,' opened every xls until it found the policy number which matched the value in the 'Policy Number Cell' and then returned the cells A1:B15 into the new Sheet.

Summing Data In Multiple Workbooks

Jul 18, 2006

I have a lot of paperwork that needs to be entered into Excel. When I finsih entering the data, there will be many workbooks containing many different worksheets. I know how to summarize each workbooks but is there a way I can add specific columns in each of those summary sheets into a new workbook? I guess the question is can I sum data from different workbooks into a new workbook?

Data From Multiple Workbooks Into 1 Workbook

Jun 14, 2007

I have 2 Excel templates using lookups to create customer quotations. When complete a macro is run which strips out formulas and links to data.

I would like to record certain data from the finished workbook in another workbook on the server e.g. quote number, date, customer, total value, follow up date.

Is it possible to include another macro that records data in certain named cells to a separate workbook when the file is saved?

Copying Data To Multiple Workbooks

Jun 14, 2007

I've got a variable row length list of data, 24 columns wide with column headers in row 7 and file descriptions on the above rows, that I need to split up into seperate Workbooks dependant upon values in the last column, all rows with the same value in column X form the same new Workbook, which I can then SaveAs with a name associated with the value. I've seen a similar thing done to sheets on the forums by using the Advance Filter and I would adapt that to copy each created worksheet to a new workbook, but a) this seems inefficient and b) my unique values are too long to name sheets from.

Data Mining Multiple Workbooks

Jan 10, 2008

Engineering has given me 300 separate 2003 Excel Files. Each of these individual Excel files contains data I need for creating a list I have been tasked to do. Cells E3, K1, A6 and J2 in each Excel file contain the data I need for my list. Rather than manually data mining 300 separate Excel files for data I need from Cells E3, K1, A6 and J2, can this be done automatically with a macro?

I'm seeking for the Macro to automatically OPEN each individual Excel file, then copy the data from Cells E3, K1, A6, J2, and then paste this data into a list file with four columns. After the pasting is done, the macro will close the source data Excel file and move on to the next one. In the future I will have to repeat this task with probably 400 individual Excel files. Therefore, it will be great if the Macro didn't care how many Excel files required data mining.

Copy Data From Multiple Workbooks Into One Workbook?

Aug 13, 2014

I'm trying to set up an excel that will allow me to gather data from multiple workbooks and get it into one master worksheet. All of the worksheets are formatted the same way (See below)

Employee Last Name
Employee First Name
Employee Position
Employee Series Number
Departing City
Departing State
Attended Pilot Training?

We don't have the data yet so the idea is to paste this information into their perspective worksheets and then have them automatically populate into the master tab.

Combining A Data Range From Multiple Workbooks?

Jun 16, 2014

I am trying to create a macro to gather a data range from multiple files placed a folder and combine them into a single worksheet which can be easily totaled. I've used some similar code I did for another project to gather the data. It starts by listing the file name and then the data set (About 40 cells) below the file title. However, the data sets from each spreadsheet are filling themselves into a single column one after the other, whereas I would like to have them populate one worksheet's data in each column.

Transferring Rows Of Multiple Data Between Workbooks

Jun 26, 2014

I have two workbooks with similar columns (note: both workbooks may not have all the same columns, but for the same columns, the names are written identically in both workbooks). I'll walk through what's in each sample workbook I've provided and what I am hoping to accomplish.

Transfer Rows1: This workbook contains multiple rows of data for one company or ID (For example, Client "A Co" has 4 rows of data.)

Transfer Rows2: Contains some of the same columns as workbook 1, but not exactly in the same order.

What I want to do is take all the multiple row data for an ID in Transfer Rows1 and put the information as a single row in Transfer Rows2. So, Client "A Co" in Workbook 1 has 4 rows, but in Workbook 2 will have 1 row. It's matching columns, essentially. Columns that are present in both workbooks should have the data filled out in only ONE row in Transfer Rows2.

As far as cost is concerned, Cost A in Transfer Rows2 is just the sum of all the Cost A's for a particular ID Number in Transfer Rows1 (same for Cost B and Cost C).

I also want the installation date in Transfer Rows2 to be the latest installation date for each unique ID from Transfer Rows1.

Also, a particular client can have multiple CID's. This appears in different rows in Transfer Rows1, but should appear in one row, multiple columns (again, for each unique ID) in Transfer Rows2.

Notice, the column 'Products' in Workbook 1 is not in Workbook 2, and that's because each row for column may have different information and thus I would not be able to transfer it into a single row in workbook 2.

TransferRows1 is where I am right now and I have filled out TransferRows2 to indicate what I hope to accomplish. I am posting here because the actual set I am working is fairly large, on the order of ~ 35,000 rows and need to automate this process using code instead having to copy and paste thousands of times.

Loop To Copy Data From Multiple Workbooks Into One

Nov 5, 2008

I'm trying to copy data from multiple spreadsheets into one summary spreadsheet. Each spreadsheet that I'm looking to copy data from is stored within a folder, named as a date, within a sharepoint site.

Each report is named as 'Report to PMT from Vauxhall', 'Report to PMT from Ford', 'Report to PMT from Fait' etc etc. and the format of each report is exactly the same.

From the attachments you will see that I'm trying to copy the following from the Report to PMT from Vauxhall to Summary Report:

Report to PMT from Vauxhall Cell D11 to Cell D19 of the Summary Report
Report to PMT from Vauxhall Cell E11 to Cell D19 of the Summary Report
Report to PMT from Vauxhall Cell F11 to Cell D19 of the Summary Report
Report to PMT from Ford Cell D11 to Cell D20 of the Summary Report
Report to PMT from Ford Cell E11 to Cell D20 of the Summary Report
Report to PMT from Ford Cell F11 to Cell D20 of the Summary Report
etc. etc.

Amend Chart Data In Multiple Workbooks

Sep 5, 2007

In my VB6 project I need to loop through several Excel Workbooks with the same chart format and amend the chart data as required from time to time. There are 2 charts in Sheet2 of every workbook. With the following coding, I can only update the chart in the first workbook but not the one in the second workbook and the rest. It appears that there will be no further updates after the first workbook is closed.

Dim nn as Integer

For nn = 0 To UBound(arrWorkbooks)
If Not EquityWBOpen(arrWorkbooks(nn)) Then GoTo Next_nn
Set oEquityWS = oEquityWB.Worksheets("Sheet2")
oEquityWS.ChartObjects("Chart 1").Activate................

Exporting Data From Multiple Workbooks To One Workbook

Nov 10, 2009

I do environmental testing for multiple hospitals and surgery centers. I've created a master workbook in excel 2007 that includes about 7 sheets. Each sheet is for account info, testing areas, billing, and reports. In the testing areas sheet, I've used a formula to compute in column F a return date for each row based on when the area in that row was tested AND based on that area's yearly schedule (quarterly, semi-annually or annually). The date tested info is in column E of each row and the yearly schedule is in column H of each row.

Every client has their own workbook created from the master workbook template. I would like to export the return dates data in column F of each workbook into a single workbook that would tell me what testing I have to do for each client in any given month so I don't have to go to each workbook and make a list manually. So, not only the date would have to show, but also all the other info in that row (acct number, location, charge, etc). BTW, the data in this testing areas sheet I want info from is not in a "table"...just in cells.

Consolidate Data From Multiple Sheets & Workbooks

Sep 23, 2007

I have been working on this project for some time and still haven't got anywhere with it. What I am essentially trying to do is create a master summary workbook where by you press a button to activate a chunk of VBA that will grab the same range of data from multiple workbooks but also multiple sheets in those workbooks, only problem is the number of sheets in each workbook are constantly changing so I need first find some way of accessing a closed workbooks, then I need a way of looping through a segment of code that will look into approximately 10 workbooks all with a different number of sheets and taking a fixed range of cells out of each sheet and for every workbook make a new tab and paste the information in that tab then move onto the next workbook, find the number of tabs (missing out the first 3 tabs of every workbook) and copy and paste the fixed range from each tab onto a new tab the summary workbook.
I will then have a summary workbook with a number of tabs, each one a different workbook with all the data from all the tabs in that workbook, I can then pull that information using formulas or some more VBA into a summary tab on the summary workbook, consolidating all of the information.

Accessing Data From Worksheets In Multiple Workbooks

Jun 27, 2008

I have read all the rules, and the guidelines for writting a thread title, and can only hope that my title meets those criteria (Dave, if they do not please do not ban me). I am fairly new to VBA, I have been able to edit other peoples code, and have created a few macros myself, and although I think I know how to use a loop and arrays, I sometimes lack some of the basics, this may be one such case. That said here is the problem I am facing.

I am creating a database, and as such I am sent several workbooks, with each workbook containning several worksheets. Within these workbooks, the naming convention of the worksheets is consistent, though each workbook may contain different number of worksheets. (the name of the worksheets represents a specific size/format).

What I have is a "Setup sheet" that I would like populated with all the data from specific worksheets in the various workbooks. So I would need to be able to get the macro to check all the workbooks, and if it finds a worksheet entitled "Sheet B" (for example) that it copies all that data into the "Setup sheet", and progresses onto the next workbook. I have the loop working and am fairly confident on this side of things, though where I am struggling is getting the Macro to know what worksheet to look at when going through the workbooks.

I need the macro to be fairly dynamic in which Worksheet it looks at so I don't want to simply hardcode the Worksheet name into the macro, rather I would like to be able to specify the worksheet name based on a cell value in the "Setup sheet". so going back to my earlier example if the cell value in the "Setup sheet" = "Sheet B" then the macro should get data from the worksheets entitled "SheetB" in the workbooks, if the cell value in the "Setup sheet" = "Sheet F" then the macro should get data from the worksheets entitled "Sheet F".

Macro To Create Multiple Workbooks Based On Data

Jul 31, 2013

I have a worksheet with the following columns:



This is a relatively long list - 1000's. What I'd like to do is create a macro that sorts by brand, and at every change in Brand, copy the user details (Username, firstname, lastname, email) to another workbook with those labels at the top of the table. Upon completion, it saves the workbook with the name of the appropriate brand.

E.g. I'd have 3 workbooks:
- BrandA.xlsx - with the 2 user listed
- BrandB.xlsx - with the 1 user listed
- BrandC.xlsx - with the 1 user listed
