I have a workbook for each day recording energy usage from 52 meters,
I need to collate the data on a single workbook.
The only way i can think of doing it is to use the INDIRECT function but this will not work on closed workbook.
I need to sum the contents of B1:AW1 on the closed workbook and input that into a cell on the new sheet.
then repeated for B2:AW2, B3:AW3 up to B52:AW52 once this has been done the process needs to be repeated for 31 workbooks.
The end product should be 31 Columns (one for each day ini the last month) and 52 rown (one for each meter) and the total daily consumption for each meter (sum of column B:AW)
I have an Excel file that contains formulas that reference external workbooks on a shared network. Each month, I copy the column of formulas over to the next month's column. Then, to update the file path, I highlight the new column and do a Find-and-Replace, swapping the previous month's name for the current month. This practice works fine. The only thing is ... the "Open File" promptbox appears for each formula where I updated the file path (i.e. and this can be hundreds instances!). I wind-up having to choose the file from the exact same file path. It is an unnecessary, and annoying extra step to take.
Is it possible to reference a named range in a workbook that is not active, one that has been closed but still available within a directory. This closed workbook has named ranges that are being added to from time to time so the named range is growing.
This workbook is to be use as a master list of all data that will be used for validation, VLOOKUPS and what ever other types of referencing I may need in other workbooks which are ALL created from the ONE template, so each workbook will be setup exactly the same, but NOT the MASTER LIST OF DATA.
If it is possible I'll definately need help with code.
Regarding the Template I'm using, I'd like to add a new sheet and have the functionality of buttons and drop down boxes to access saved workbooks (which will all be in the same directory) and also the ability to create a new workbook from my template by perhaps using a button.
I'm reading data, from specific cells off a closed workbook. When the sheet that needs said cell data is activated, it automatically opens the workbook and references the sheet nessecary. The issue I've come across, is I now need to access another workbook (Easy to open) with 12 sheets 1 for each month, and only read from the worksheet of the actual Month...
Kind of lost on how to possibly make this work. I basically need something like:
I am trying to create a one-page spreadsheet which links info from other various spreadsheets. There is one spreadsheet I am trying to link to which has information listed where Column A is the product name, Column B is the UPC and Column C is the sales rank. I created an offset formula that pulls the top 5 rated items by sales rank (Column C) into my new spreadsheet, but whenever the source workbook is closed, I get error messages. Is there a way around this so the workbook I am pulling my information from does not have to be open.
I have tried using PULL from Harlan Grove's posts to workaround this but am coming up with #VALUE errors.
Here's what I have:
Column B contains the acct # being referenced e.g. 5230 Column E="_"&Br where r is the row # Column F=MATCH($B$3,INDIRECT(Er&"Rows")) where _acct#Rows is a named range referring to an external workbook e.g. _5230Rows Columns G-R=INDEX(INDIRECT($Er),$Fr,COLUMN(G$6)) where_acct# is a named range referencing an external workbook e.g. _5230
I thought that INDEX($Er, $Fr, COLUMN(G$6)) should work in Columns G-R however it returns #REF!
I need a solution to replace INDIRECT so I do not have to have both workbooks open together. The named ranges are static, but reference external workbooks.
I have a file created in Excel 2003 that uses a vlookup to reference another file, also created in Excel 2003. The function returns VALUE when the referenced file is closed. I get the VALUE error whether or not I update links upon opening the file. If I open the source file, the function calculates properly.
Here is the formula when the referenced file is open:
The full & correct path appears in the formula when the referenced file is closed.
Columns C, D & E in the referenced range contain text, column F contains a Sum. This file is linked to another file, also using lookups. The linked area in this file works without problem, but it is a precedent to the calculation in column F.
Both these files reside on a network in subdirectories of the same logical drive. I am using a laptop that briefly had Excel 2007 installed on it, but was wiped clean before it was issued to me.
i can use application.username to get activeuser name and have excel check this and close the workbook if its not me, what i want to do is have excel check lets say cell A1 in workbook SECURITY.xls stored in C: and if it says Craig Shippey leave workbook open if not close the workbook, why i said working with closed workbooks is i dont want to have any indication on where its checking from,
1. i have a workbook in which i want an Workbook_open macro lets call this workbook staff.xls 2. the staff.xls should read cell A1 from C:security.xls into a variable called Check 3 if check craig shippey close workbook without any prompt
all this should be done without anyone knowing that a macro opens another workbook, i know if the user disables macros then it will still open, but i will just set their Macro Security level to low so they wont be prompted, i will also remove that item from their menu bar, if they cant see it they wont be able to alter it back
I am using the following code to attempt to pull data from closed workbooks. Something in the code is not working and i can't figure it out. ARG is resulting in the path i need with the exception of TOTAL which is the sheet i need the data from.
Private Function getvalue(path, file, sheet, ref)
'Retrieves a value from a closed workbook Dim arg As String
' Make sure the file exists If Right(path, 1) <> "" Then path = path & "" If Dir(path & "k217811.xls") = "" Then getvalue = "File Not Found" Exit Function End If
I have this excellent code which I found on here that looks at the data in column A, looks at the data in column B & then returns the differences ie.
A_____________B_________C___________D______________E John________Jimi_________________Not in A_______Not in B Paul________Sporty________________Jimi____________John George______Ginger________________Eric____________Posh Ringo_______Scary_________________T-Bone__________Baby Posh________Eric Scary_______Ringo Sporty______Paul Ginger______George Baby________T-Bone
I have this formula in a excel file called test.xls which does a SUMIF on file "Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls". It works fine when I have Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls open at the time. When I close it the file displays a #VALUE in the cells
My formula is:
=SUMIF('G:FINANCEAccantia Budget2009Sales and GC[Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls]DP Total'!$B$7:$M$7,Cover!M$85,'G:FINANCEAccantia Budget2009Sales and GC[Sales By Customer v3 17-11-08.xls]DP Total'!B9:M9)-'Page 15'!E9
This is really annoying as the formula works, and you need to open the linked file to display the results, otherwise you get the #VALUE. Is there anyway around this and why is it doing it??
I am looking to import a sheet into an opened workbook. I have found a code from this URL [URL]....but I can't manage to get this done correctly. I want to copy the range "A1:Z1000" from the "Source" sheet to the target sheet "Div_P&L" (which will be opened when the macro is run) located in another folder.
Source address : "H:P&LYE TempDiv P&LP&L Report 020312.xls" , sheet("Source"), data = range("A1:Z1000"). Target address : "H:Yield EnhancementPandL.xls" , sheet("Div_P&L") , data = range ("A1")
Line Workbooks(PandL).Activate => Run time error 9, Subscript out of range.
I have tried the getvalue function which works, but it takes a long time. So I want to use an ADO way.
Sub importdata() ImportRangeFromWB "H:P&LYE TempDiv P&LP&L Report 020312.xls", "Source", "A1:Z1000", True, "PandL.xls", "Div_P&L", "A1" End Sub
Sub ImportRangeFromWB(SourceFile As String, SourceSheet As String, _ SourceAddress As String, PasteValuesOnly As Boolean, _ TargetWB As String, TargetWS As String, TargetAddress As String) ' Imports the data in Workbooks(SourceFile).Worksheets(SourceSheet).Range(SourceAddress)
I would like to create a sheet that looks in a certain folder with several .xls files and pulls data from certain cells ( not necessarily next to each other) automatically with out opening each workbook in the target folder.
Each workbook is laid out the same, based on a template, and emailed to me each day (I'll actually get 3 or 4 a day, one from each plant) So the number of files will grow every day. (I've read about a way to automatically save the file based and the date, hour, and minute, and email the file when a certain condition is met, and plan to use this technique in the template.) So the file names should be consistent.
As an example, I would like cell A1 to contain the date from the oldest file and increment row by row as the files come in, automatically. Then the cells B1 on across would contain data from certain cells within the .xls file with that date and time.
Every time that workbook is opened it would update to include data from any new files in the specified folder.
I've done some basic vlookup formulas to look at one particular workbook but not several.
I've got 20 spreadsheets called Week 1 to Week 20 each has two sheets called Wk 42 T and Week 42 R. They are stored in a shared area. I want to Copy all the data in Column M in both sheets and then transfer the data to a summary sheet with a sheet for each.
I've got the below code to open the workbooks but need help with selecting that data per workbook then by sheet and looping through each sheet and pasting in Column A.
Sub RunCodeOnAllXLSFiles() Dim lCount As Long Dim wbResults As Workbook Dim wbCodeBook As Workbook
I have multiple workbook files using the same template but saved under different files names usually by date. I need to summarize the data in a summary worksheet that pulls the same cells from the various individual closed workbooks. I need to be able to insert the file's path as an input to pulling data from a cell or cells.
i am currently doing a survey. the survey's are done in excel format and after i send out to everyone they will return me the soft copies in excel format. After which i would have many "forms" in excel format. i would like to extract all the data out from those forms into one worksheet. How is it possible ? It can either be excel formulas ? in-built functions or macro.
I've named some cells in the source workbook, and linked these names to the destination workbook. Then I used the names in some formulas in the destination workbook, and it worked great. But when I closed the source workbook it doesnt work. WHen I open the source it works great, but I need for it to be able to link to the workbook when it is closed as well.
I got a problem that I cannot seem to solve, I want to retrieve values from 2 closed workbooks, I have with the help of this forum managed to create some VBA that retrieves the values from one of the workbook. What do I need to think of,to be able to put in the values from the second spreadsheet without the values disapearing from the "master" spreadsheet?
The code so far:
Sub ValuesfromClosedWorkbook() Dim filetoopen As String Dim wb As Workbook
filetoopen = Application _ . GetOpenFilename("XL Files (*.xls), *.xls") On Error Resume Next Set wb = Workbooks.Open(filetoopen, True, True) With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(1) . Cells.Value = wb.Worksheets(1).Cells.Value End With wb.Close False Set wb = Nothing End Sub
How do I update changes to a linked workbook without having to open it? Let's say that I have two workbooks, "workbook1" and "workbook2". I want to copy data entered from workbook1 to workbook2 without opening workbook2. I know that I can just open workbook2 so that the formula will work but if I do that I'll end up opening up to 3 workbooks, which doesn't really give you much security.
I have had a good look around and have found some scripts that look like they can help but do not. here is my situation
I have 300+ questionaires in excel that contain around 20 questions with each question having the possibility of 5 answers i.e A1 A1Do you like this service, answers will be scored in cells F1,G1,H1,I1,J1
What I would like is for a master document to combine all the data into 1 document so I will know how many of the 300 have F1,G1 etc.
In the filed F1 the variable may be X or it may be a number, I would like to add up the number of non blanks in that field, from 300+ closed workbooks
I tried using Dave Hawley's code, but I can't get it to work. It works if the source workbook is open, but I get all "#REF" results if the source workbook is closed. Sales Order Import is the target worksheet for the data, inside the open workbook where this code is located.
Set wks = Worksheets("Sales Order Import") With wks. Range("A56:Z100") .FormulaR1C1 = "=IF('C:DdriveMy DocumentsProjectManagementManagementReport[AU0009099.xls]Sheet1'!RC="""",NA(),'C:DdriveMy DocumentsProjectManagementManagementReport[AU0009099.xls]Sheet1'!RC)" 'Delete all Error cells On Error Resume Next '.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeFormulas, xlErrors).Clear On Error Goto 0 'Change all formulas to Values only .Value = .Value End With
The .SpecialCells line is commented out, because it error messages (that's my next problem to tackle).
Each job has it's own xls file, this is a list of manually input costs and a total cost at the bottom (total is the same Cell reference: G24) for all xls files. The xls file is named the same as the job - F0001, F0002 etc.
At the end of every month we then want to create a master list xls file for all jobs being invoiced that month. This is a list of all the jobs - F0001, F0002 etc. In Column A, and the corresponding cost totals in column B.
In the master file we want to be able to type in the job reference to column A (i.e. the file names of the single job files -F0001, F0002 etc) and have the corresponding total for that reference display automatically in Column B (i.e. Cell G24 from file F0001 will display in the master file cell B1, when 'F0001' is typed in cell A1).
Ideally the master file would display all the individual entries automatically, so no need to input the job references either - simply scanning the directory for the other files present and creating a list automatically in the master file, alternatively it can get the job reference from Cell A1 in the individual job files, instead of from the file name.
I'm trying to get a system setup with a workbook acting as a reference document, sort of read only and on a separate server. Which is then referenced by another "working" workbook, no problem so far other than I want to be able to view/show images from within the main reference workbook in the destination working workbook. I want this to happen when a user inputs a code, it should populate a series of cells including showing a small jpeg of said item.
For example if I use the camera function it doesn't do as desired when the main reference workbook is not currently open.
I was hoping to avoid macro's or vb if at all possible.
I'm a bit of an Excel novice though have limited programming experience in other languages / applications. I'm also a complete novice when it comes to forums and threads etc. so excuse me if I mess up protocol at all.
