Open Set Of Files To Fetch Data Starting From A Master File Where The Links Are Given Using A Loop

Aug 29, 2006

I am trying to open set of excel files to fetch data starting from a master excel file where the links are given using a loop. Some of files given as links are either absent or the link is wrong.

* What is the syntax to find if the link is correct/present

* What is the syntax to find if the file is present in specified location

* What is the syntax to find if the file is password protected to open

* I use error handler to resume the next statement if OPEN statement fails.It works fine inside the loop only for first two files.

For example if the third link is errorneous the error handler fails and RUN TIME ERROR occurs.

Pasting Data From A Master File To Two Other Files

Nov 15, 2009

My project requires working with 3 different files, in my example here: Delivery Status, Warehouse, and Clients. Delivery Status is the master file where the information is gathered at first. Then when the product arrives, from the column "AI" I choose the Destination which it could be a warehouse or client. So far the code that I have can paste the information in different sheets within the File Warehouse, but can not make the difference between the File warehouse and the file Clients.

In the Delivery Status file I can choose from the Column AI whether the destination is a warehouse or a client and I need Excel to paste the information in the proper file. Have in mind that I have a lot of sheets in both files. I am attaching an example files with the code.

Consolidating Certain Information Within Many Data Files Into Single Tab In Master File

Feb 14, 2013

I'm a relatively competent VBA user to a macro recorder and basic editing of custom code level but fall short with writing custom code and don't have much used or proven code I can copy from.

Problem: I'd like to automate a process whereby consolidating certain information within many data files (possibly up to 500) into a single tab within a master file.

At the moment there are only a few data files which are manually consolidated by way of manual links but going forward it will increase significantly, hence the need to automate.

I need to consolidate the following 5 cells from each data file A1, A2, A5, A7, A8 (vertical) into a single row within the master file across 5 columns (horizontal), i.e. each data file will populate 1 row in the master file, one below the other. If there are 500 data files there will be 500 rows of data in the master file.

The data files will be saved in a central location on our server and the master file will sit outside this folder, possibly in a subfolder.

Something which would be handy is a link in the master file to each data file, i.e. if I click on a data row in the master file it would jump to the source data file.

Transfering Files From Lots Of Files To One Single Exel Master File.

Jun 26, 2009

Need a way to update a single master file. What happens right now is that the cost manager sends out one file to a lot of different project heads and then on having them return back to him he basically has to individually add in all the data. What i am trying to do is that he somehow carries on sending out the data as there are a lottt of projects and then on returning them they automatically update.

Macro To Open New Files And Edit Links

May 12, 2014

I'm trying to set up a macro so that: in column C I will see the current (old) links being used by the workbookin column D I will input the new links I want to use in the workbookthe macro will open all those files in column Dthe macro will then replace the current (old) links with those listed in column D

I have the following so far, but something doesn't seem to be working - it gets as far as opening the first new file but doesn't open any others and doesn't change any links (although I've tested the part to change links separately and this seemed to work ok).

Sub linked_sheets()
Dim LinkedBooks As Variant
Dim i As Long
LinkedBooks = ThisWorkbook.LinkSources()
For i = LBound(LinkedBooks) To UBound(LinkedBooks)
Cells(i + 3, 3) = LinkedBooks(i)

Append Multiple Csv Files Into Master File?

Jan 13, 2010

I have about 100 csv files of the same format that I would like to append into a single master file. Order is not important for appending (I can do a column sort later) I can do copying and pasting, but this will take a long time especially because I will creating more master files from completely different CSVs in the future. Is there a faster way to append CSV files?

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.

Macro To Add New Sheet To Many Excel Files From A Master File?

Jul 11, 2013

I have many folders (around 500) - each of them contains a excel file (the excel files have all the same name), ideally I would like to be able to run a macro from a master excel file that would allow me to add a sheet which I would create in the master excel file and add it to all of the excel files that are in the folders. So far I have used the code from the link: [URL]

Sub CopyWorkbook()
Dim sh As Worksheet, wb As workbook
Set wb = workbooks("1.xlsx")


but when I change it from 2.xlsx to 1.xslx in the code it works just fine, copying the sheets from the file to itself.

For Each f1 In ff..........

Copy Information From Variable Workbooks To Master File Then Loop?

Apr 30, 2014

What I have is a master file that needs to pull info from other sources (a simple copy and paste)
those files are called Inventory_xxxx.xlsm . Inside the master file, there are cells with the number of the inventory.

What i need is a way to tell excel to check what number is in the cell, open the files with that number, get the info from the files and paste it back in the master file... and the part that i consider the trickiest, a way to loop it.

For example, lets say i have 2248 in cell A10, it should open Inventory_2248.xlsm copy the contents from cell N4, O4, P4, Q4, R4 and S4(Inventory File) into N10,R10,S10,T10 and U10 (Master file) respectively then in A11, there could be a 2250 so it should open the 2250 file get the info, paste it and so on.....

Now I don't even know if this is do-able or just impossible, been fiddling with various codes to no avail.

Create Subfiles From Master File Using Key To Split Workbooks To Separate Files

Jun 13, 2013

I am trying to make my macro more dynamic for a spreadsheet I am working on. I have this code which splits out worksheets (using the specific names of the worksheets-not dynamic) from a main workbook into template workbooks (which are basically just an empty workbook because I didn't know how else to do it) and then saves them using the paths below. I would like to make this more dynamic by splitting the different worksheets into new workbooks based on a key column in the hierarchy worksheet.

Basically I have a list of accounts in column B with the file name they should be exported to in column A. There are about 30 accounts being split into 6 different region files. Also note that the same account might be listed multiple times in column A (needed to add multiple numbers for other lookup formulas in the worksheets) but that account worksheet will still only be going to one of the six region files and not to multiple regions. After these are copied to an individual file I would like to save it to a location on my computer. All files will go to this location.

Sub Create_Subfiles()

Dim FDMName As String
Dim FBName As String
Dim DIYName As String
Dim WMName As String

Transfers (copy/paste) Information From One Master File To Several Other Individual Files

Apr 16, 2009

I have a macro that transfers (copy/paste) information from one master file to several other individual files. The macro works, but I would like
to enhance it by have it spit out errors in the process as follows: if cell A42 on file VP1.xls is not equal to Cell C35 on file Masterfile.xls then make cell E2 ERROR and fomat E2 bold-red, otherwise do nothing. The macro should continue regardless, I just want it to spot errors.
I think this is pretty simple is just a matter of inserting an IF formula in the macro which is something i don't know how to do yet.

Get Open File Name To Open Multiple Files

Jul 3, 2007

I'm doing the following:

Dim myname As String
myname = Application. GetOpenFilename

I use it to attempt to open first a QuickBooks file and then an excel workbook.
The Quickbooks file opens fine. The Excel workbook never appears to open but
I do get the full file pathname to my excel workbook returned which I then
parse off to get just the workbook name.

Why would it behave this way? I open both these files manually all the time.

Also, I'm trying to use a filter as follows:

myname = Application.GetOpenFilename("*.QBW")

I get a compile error saying that I'm calling the function wrong.

Loop Macro To Open/copy List Of Files

Oct 24, 2007

I am trying to write a macro to open a specific file (i.e site 1) and copy a range and paste that data into another workbook (Comparisons).

I can manage to write the macro to do this one by one, but ideally I would like to write some sort of loop macro that will go down a specific range of files (column A), listing the copy range (column B), and where to paste (column C) until it hits a blank row.

That way I do not have to keep re-programming my comparison spreadsheet every time a new site opens.

Loop Through Sheets And Fetch Freeze Pane Positions

Nov 22, 2013

I need to list all freeze pane position from every sheets in my workbook in order to reverse a "unfreeze all" function. I don't know if i need to be more specific ?

Situation : I have a workbook with many sheets. Every worksheet has a different freeze pane position. I hate freeze panes, so while i'm working in a workbook, i remove them all. My boss likes those ones so i want to give him back my work with the same layout.

The main thing i don't know here if how you ask Excel to fetch freeze pane info. Ideally the information will be reported in a new sheet, columns : Sheets, HorizontalFreezePanePosition, VerticalFPP...

Once i will have this list, i will create a new macro and set back freeze pane individually.

CSV Files Open In New File Instance

Sep 22, 2008

I regularly process CSV files that are downloaded from various websites. The problem is, for some reason many (but NOT all) downloaded CSV files do not open in "Microsoft Office Excel" and thus, my primary workspace. They instead open in a separate instance of "Excel.exe" which is actually kinda nice because I can treat each separately, move windows around, etc. The problem is, macros that are in my primary workbook, cannot be seen by the secondary instance(s). So while I have created a number of nifty macros to clean up all the data and format it exactly how I want it in the blink of an eye, I can't run them when a file opens in its own instance.

1) How can I force ALL .csv files to open in the primary "Microsoft Office Excel" application? NOTE: Using the normal Windows Explorer "Open With..." function and setting the default application only works for LOCAL files, and does NOT work to control how remotely downloaded .csv files are opened.

2) How can I make it so that macros can be seen between Excel instances - such that when I choose to see macros in "all open workbooks", it will actually see the macros in the open workbook in the other primary Excel instance?

Loop Through Set Of Files And Check If File Doesn't Exist?

My problem is that I want to loop through a directory that contains csv files. The directory is dynamic so everytime could be a different number of files inside. I want the loop to go through each file and check if that file exists. If it doesn't to print a message that this specific files doesn't exist. Until now I got the following code:

I guess I should somehow place the counter j inside the Dir path in order to check if everytime time the file[j] exists?

VBA To Open Multiple Files With Different Unknown File Names?

Feb 28, 2014

I'm trying to build a macro to open multiple files at one time that will always be saved in a consistent drive. The problem is that sometimes there will only be one file for a month (ie only at month-end) and other times, there may also be additional files for different dates throughout the month. I wont know ahead of time how many files there will be, but they will always be saved in the same file name type that is "FILE DESCRIPTION MM-DD-YYYY". How can I build a loop that looks for a file on each possible day but doesn't error out if the file doesn't exist?

Excel VBA To Open Files In Folder With Specific String In Name Of File?

I have a requirement to search workbooks in a particular folder with specific string in file name. For example, let us assume I need to find a file which contains the name 'RR' in it. The position of 'RR' will vary with files i.e. 'RR' might be present either in the beginning, middle or at the end of file name. All I wanted is to search for file with 'RR' and do some activity and close the file and then goto next file. Similarly, the next search has to be performed with the files containing the name 'BB' in it.

Excel 2010 :: Open Text Files In 65536 Row File Instead Of 1048576?

Apr 22, 2013

Is there a way to open a text file from Excel 2010 and specify that I want it in .xls format?

I am working in compatibility mode, and expected that when I opened a text file from code within an xls file, the text file would have 65,536 rows, but it has 1,048,576. This causes a problem when we try to copy the sheet with the data from the text file, and insert the sheet into our xls workbook. See code below. The error is: Run-time error '1004': Excel cannot insert the sheets into the destination workbook, because it contains fewer rows and columns than the source workbook..

I know I can get the data other ways (such as copying and pasting only the cells containing data) but I was hoping to make minimal changes to the code below as I will have to make it across several templates. Specifically, I was hoping that there was a qualifier I could add to the Workbooks.OpenText statement after "Tab:=True" - Perhaps something about opening the text file in File Format 56. However I have not been able to find out how to do that.

.....FileToOpen = Application.GetOpenFilename("All Files (*.*),*.*,GeoTAC Files (*.ctf),*.ctf, ­_
Text Files (*.txt),*.txt,Excel Files (*.xls),*.xls", 1, , , False)
Workbooks.OpenText Filename:=FileToOpen, _
