Utillize In Separate Formulas In The Same Workbook

Oct 12, 2007

I have a list of .xls filenames contained in a sheet that I would like to utilize in separate formulas in the same workbook.

I can't seem to write a formula to utilize a filename in a separate cell to gather data from said filename.

In other words, I would like to do something like the following:

Cell A1: '[filename.xls]'

Cell A2: =A1Sheet1!A1

to gather the data from Sheet1 cell A1 in filename.xls, but it doesn't work no matter how I have tried. It seems the only way is to actually manually transcribe the filename into cell A2, but this doesn't seem right. There must be a way to do this.

Separate Workbook By Value In Column Into Separate Workbooks

Feb 25, 2013

I have 10 very large workbooks that are all setup in the same format. In column Z is a numerical value from 1 to 83. I have been trying to filter the sheet and then copy one at a time from 1 to 83 but that takes a LONG time especially when there is 10 workbooks to do.

Is there anyway I can run a function or macro or something that would just automatically look down the column Z and put each row into a it's own workbooks?

I have attached a sample of what the workbooks look like right now.

Formulas And Output On Separate Sheets `

Jul 4, 2007

What I want is one sheet that has all of the fomulas, then 4 other sheets that take those formulas and calculate the output based on the formulas and one column of input.

So essentially, I want to be able to change the formula once, and have it applied to all of the other sheets, resulting in a new output for each one.

How To Separate Row Data From One Workbook Into Separate Workbooks Based On Cell Data

Apr 23, 2014

I need to separate row data from one workbook into separate workbooks based on cell data. Currently I filter the data, copy and paste it to a new workbook and save it. It's a tedious process and was hoping to find a way to automate it. I have attached a sample file. In this instance, I would like a separate workbook for the filtered data in Column 1 and then all the row data gets copied to new workbook. So all of Pennsylvania data would get copied to new workbook, then all of the Michigan data gets copied to a new workbook. I have also attached an example of the end result that I need.

Copy A Range Of Cells In Another Workbook Opened In A Separate Instance Of Workbook

Feb 11, 2010

I m not able to use the standard Excel Paste Special function when I copied a range of cells in another Excel workbook opened in a separate instance of Excel. Instead, Paste Special thinks that I have copied some non-Excel objects and gave me the Paste As options. This is not the case if I open both workbook within the same instance of Excel. Could you share with us if there is a trick to trigger the normal Paste Special options in such situations (without having to invoke Macro procedures)?

Extracting Information From A Workbook And Saving Into A Separate Workbook

Feb 21, 2014

i have a workbook blank template for my colleagues to fill in, they fill in this blank template and save it under the serial number of the item they are creating. However a lot of errors exist when they input the serial number inside the workbook where the serial number is a duplicate of a former serial number.

Anyhow i was wondering is there any way when they input the serial number into the worksheet that i could get it to save in a separate workbook and then have conditional formatting to check those serial numbers in the workbook to see if they match?

Create New Workbook With Separate Sheets From Data In Another Workbook

Jul 16, 2012

I have been tasked with creating a macro which creates a new workbook wherein each sheet contains the information for one site from the active sheet. The active sheet already has the values sorted by the site such that all information needing to be copied from the active sheet into the new workbook is together.



There are 8 different sites on the active sheet: ATL, CEN, DAL, HAR, JAS, JCK, VIS, NOV

The macro needs to find the range for all of the data of each site and copy/paste that data into a new workbook such that ATL would have its own sheet, CEN would have its own sheet, and so on. The data ranges from A:R.

So, for example, the macro would find that the last row with ATL in the "B" column is 6095 and would then copy A2:R6095 and insert that data into the new workbook under Sheet 1.

I had some code that I had adapted to select the range for each of them, but the code loops through the entire sheet (which is 44,307 rows long) for each site making it a quite clunky and very slow step in an even longer macro. Since the data is already sorted, I know there must be a way to have the macro stop searching when it reaches data not equal to the data the row before, however, my experience with VBA is limited, and I have been unable to find a solution. Also, the data does not have to be conserved after being sent to the new workbook, if that would speed up the macro.

Changing Workbook Formulas To Reference New Workbook Name

Aug 6, 2012

I have a workbook "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" and another workbook "Weekly Field Report $$$-Master" The "Weekly Field Report $$$-Master" workbook has all the formulas that pull data from the "Weekly Field Reports-Master Copy" workbook and populates a financial report of that week's field unit production.

When I save the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" workbook to a new name "Weekly Field Report Job #1" and then save the "Weekly Field Report $$$-Master Copy" workbook to a new name "Weekly Field Report $$$-Job #1" is there a way to automatically change the formulas in the "Weekly Field Report $$$-Job #1" workbook to now pull data from the "Weekly Field Report Job #1" workbook instead of the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy" workbook???

Currently I am manually changing the formulas in the new workbook "Weekly Field Report $$$-Job #1" to reference the data in the new workbook "Weekly Field Report Job #1". Otherwise the formulas pull the data from the "Weekly Field Report-Master Copy".

Running Macros From A Separate Workbook

Jun 9, 2008

Our department receives weekly and fortnighly updated workbooks from a number of different departments. Each workbook contains 10s of worksheets. Our department analyzes the data and generates reports from those worksheets.

I have developed a few macros to automate the report generation for making the computing of my colleagues easier.

Now, the problem is that all the macros are developed behind individual sheets and some modules. For this reason, my colleagues have to copy each updated sheet and paste over the older ones individually, each and every time. It is really quite time-consuming task - deleting older data from all the worksheets and then copying fresh data on each of them, one by one.

They want to make their life easier by just replacing the entire workbooks with the new ones and still want the macros functioning, as usual.

My concern is how I can put all the code in a separate workbook and how to reference data from the other workbook.

How To Activate Workbook In Separate Instance

Apr 18, 2009

-I've been trying to get an answer to this problem for some time and I would like to try again from a different approach.

I may have 5 workbooks open in 5 different Instances of Excel. The number of files open varies. When the below Function is called, it checks to see if the file, trying to be opened, is already open or not.

Currently, if the file is already open, a mesage is displayed stating that it is open and the user has to search through tabs looking for the file so that it can be displayed.

What I want to do in place of a message, is activate the file that is already open and display it. No message necessary.

I have tried "Application.Activate" and can not make it work.

Indirect Reference To A Separate Workbook

Jun 26, 2014

Just wondering if there is a way to indirectly reference a workbook in a formula?

For example, suppose A1 has the path/filename of the workbook I want to reference.

So in another cell I want to do, say, a VLOOKUP(A2,A1,5), where A2 is the lookup value. This way, if I have multiple workbooks I want to look at, I can specify them all in various cells, and simply have the formula look at the right cell to perform the lookup.

I've played with INDIRECT and get something close if I do


but that just returns the contents of A1 in the target sheet.

Macro To Split Workbook Into Separate Workbooks

Jul 7, 2009

I have a large workbook with many worksheets which are all grouped into pairs - i.e. Sheet1 & Sheet2 go together, Sheet3 & Sheet4 go together; Sheet5 & Sheet6 go together, etc. etc.

I need a macro to divide this workbook into separate workbooks where each group of worksheets has a separate file of its own and I want to name the new workbooks after the second sheet in each group:

i.e. A new workbook for Sheet1 & Sheet2 called Sheet2.xls; a new workbook for Sheet3 & Sheet4 called Sheet4.xls; a new workbook for Sheet5 & Sheet6 called Sheet6.xls; etc. etc. etc.

Index / Match Search In 3 Separate Workbook

Sep 29, 2011

I have been working on this 2 weeks and have finally come to the conclusion. I am trying to use index/match to find an article number in any 1 of 3 attribute files workbooks. I have been am using Vlookup, but the Master attribute file workbooks DO NOT list the article number in column A (but list them in F) and therefore I have been creating an altered copy every month to place the article numbers in column A so VLOOKUP would work. Index/Match would be a more efficient look up formula as I could link directly to the Master Attribute files without altering the workbooks.

Below is the formula I have been using that looks in 2 attribute files workbooks

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A8,'C:Recon Workbook FilesService FilesAttributeFiles[TireAttributes.xlsx]TireAttributes'!A:C,2,FALSE)),
IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A8,'C:Recon Workbook FilesService FilesAttributeFiles[PartAttributes.xls]PartAttributes'!A:D,2,FALSE)),"",
(VLOOKUP(A8,'C:Recon Workbook FilesService FilesAttributeFiles[PartAttributes.xls]PartAttributes'!A:D,2,FALSE))),
(VLOOKUP(A8,'C:Recon Workbook FilesService FilesAttributeFiles[TireAttributes.xlsx]TireAttributes'!A:C,2,FALSE)))

Below are the three (the new formula would incorporate a 3rd attributes workbook "Other" to the search criteria) Index/Match formulas I would like to "Tie" together to find the article number in any of the 3 attribute files workbooks and return column A if the article number is present or nothing if the article number is not present in any of the 3.

Input Data Into Userform From Separate Workbook

Jul 25, 2014

So I have a workbook (Workbook1) that opens a userform on launch. I have another workbook (Workbook2) that has a button to open Workbook1. Upon opening Workbook1 (and as a result the userform) I'd like to input data from Workbook2 into the fields of the userform. I'm not exactly sure how to reference the userform fields to input data from Workbook2.

I'm trying the following code:

Workbooks.Open (Workbook1)

With Workbooks(Workbook1).Userform1
UserformField1 = "Billy"
UserformField2 = "John"
End With

The macro is opening Workbook1 and the userform but the fields return blank.

Save UserForm Data Into Separate Workbook

May 22, 2008

I have a form which creates a budget based on user input. I want to save that user input in a separate workbook. My goal is to reduce the file size. I have several modules which perform evaluations/ calculations, and then format the output in a worksheet, but the size is pretty large 450KB.

I was thinking that I could set the control source, to different cells on the worksheet, and then just copy the worksheet to a new workbook, and save the data by itself. Then if I wanted to change the data for a given budget, I would copy the sheet back into the workbook that contains the modules, and load the form again. Is this a good solution? Is there a better way? Please let me know if I can provide more information.

Automatic Data Entry To Separate Workbook From Userform

Jul 30, 2013

I have a userform, UserForm1, which lives in a spreadsheet called 'Data Entry.xls' There is nothing else on the spreadsheet itself, it's just for the use of a userform.

I would like the user to populate textboxs in UserForm1 but have that update cells in a separate spreadsheet 'Training.xls' in the same directory.

I have this code at the moment to find the next empty row and to input data into it, which is working perfectly to enter data to sheet1 in Data Entry.xls:

[CODE]Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

eRow = Sheet1.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row
Cells(eRow, 1) = TextBox1.Text
Cells(eRow, 2) = TextBox2.Text
Cells(eRow, 3) = TextBox6.Text

End Sub[CODE]

How can i modify it so it would do the same thing, i.e find the next empty row and then populate with what the user types in the textbox but in Sheet1 of 'Training.xls'

Would 'Training.xls' need to be open?

How To Have Single Userform Put Data Into Two Separate Sheets Within Same Workbook

Is it possible to have a single userform put data into two separate sheets within the same workbook.

I have a userform set up for entering client data into a quote register,with no problems ( sheet 1)

A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, A9

What I would like is for the data to also go to sheet 2, where I have a form set up to print off for our technicians to take on site.

The problem will be that I would like the data A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, A9 not to store on this sheet after it is printed, so the next set on entries , can be printed etc.etc

Merging Excel Workbooks Into Master Workbook With Separate Sheet For Each File

May 24, 2014

I have 30 xlsx files in a folder and I want the first sheet of all that files to be merged to a new workbook. The thing is I don't want the macro to copy paste the value in to the same sheet of the new master sheet like Ron's excel merge tool does. I want a macro to create new 30 sheets on the master file and copy the data from source files. And I want the newly added sheets to be renamed as the source file name. This works well except the sheet renaming thing.

Excel 2003 :: Deleting Rows For Multiple Files In Separate Workbook

Sep 10, 2012

I'm new to this forum and to VBA

First-off, I'm using Excel 2003 SP3.

The setup: A software application I regularly use produces csv data files (in this case approx 300 files). These I have converted to xls format using a separate macro. The files are in one folder and named as follows eg

G1 18800.xls
G1 18802.xls
G2 18975.xls
G3 19881.xls
G3 19990.xls
G5 19990.xls

The files contain the following data:

01-Oct-03 08:00 0 0 FALSE 0
01-Oct-03 08:01 0 0 FALSE 0
01-Oct-03 08:02 0 0 FALSE 0
01-Oct-03 08:03 0 0 FALSE 0
01-Oct-03 08:04 757 20 FALSE 0.18
01-Oct-03 08:05 1714 32 FALSE 0.44
01-Oct-03 08:06 1524 32 FALSE 0.39
01-Oct-03 08:07 1665 45 FALSE 0.47
01-Oct-03 08:08 1644 42 FALSE 0.46
01-Oct-03 08:09 263 8 FALSE 0.06

I then created a macro using code I sourced from the internet, and included some addtional commands (filename, copy/paste). See below. This macro opens the all the xls data files in the folder and copies the relevant data to an analysis workbook [Analysis sheet, Results sheet, Master sheet] ie the data is copied from the data file and pasted into the Analysis worksheet. Then the results are copied from the Results sheet to the Master sheet. So far so everything works.

My problem is this: I'm stumped at how to delete rows from the xls data files before running the analysis workbook and macro. In other words, after converting the csv files to xls format I need to clean the xls data files.

I have a separate xls file with criteria data in two columns:

FileName Date
G1 18800 06-Oct-03
G1 18801 02-Oct-03
G1 18801 03-Oct-03
G1 18801 05-Oct-03
G2 18795 14-Oct-03
G2 18795 15-Oct-03
G2 18795 16-Oct-03
G2 18795 17-Oct-03

The rows in a particular data file, with dates that are not present in the Criteria workbook must be deleted. This to be done for every data file in the folder. Also, I need to exclude rows for specific time periods eg 12H00AM - 04H00AM from all the files irrespective of date.

the code needed [should a separate macro be run or can code be placed within the present macro?]. I've tried looking for something similar on the internet, but my requirements seem too customized to be able to adapt the code that I found. And of course this is waaaay above my present skill level!

Option Explicit

Sub CopyPaste()

'This code opens up data files (xls) in a specified folder and copies data A1:G17281 to an Analysis workbook (Analysis sheet).

'The data from the Results sheet is then copied to the Master sheet.

Dim wkbDest As Workbook
Dim wksDest As Worksheet
Dim wkbSource As Workbook
Dim wksSource As Worksheet
Dim MyPath As String
Dim MyFile As String

Macro - Copy Data Based On Info In Cell From Separate Workbook

Jun 4, 2014

I have an invoicing spreadsheet, what I want is to have a main working page and then tabs after separated by vendor, but save myself a bunch of manual work in the future.

I want to be able to work in the main tab and the other tabs automatically update with the new info.

So I want the macro to search the text in the first column and if it finds "AIM Land Services Ltd." then I want it to populate the appropriate tab, in this case "AIM", with all the respective information after it ie: A-O. But I dont want it to select any other vendors/ info.

This is what I have:

Sub MoveData()
For Each cell In Range("A1:A1") ' Where to look for the date
If cell.Value = "AIM Land Services Ltd." Then ' The date
Range("A5:O350").Select ' What is the range to copy
Selection.Copy ' Copy it
Sheets("Invoice_Log").Select ' Select the Sheet it applies to
Range("A5").Select ' Where to paste the data

Several Worksheets Same Workbook Same Formulas

Mar 4, 2009

I use excel 2003 SP3. I've created invoices that have several (very basic), but different formulas in the last column of the worksheet. I have the same customers every month so I use the same monthly workbook for all invoices. Since each invoice has the same formulas, in the same cells, I used the SHIFT key while selecting the entire range of worksheets (invoices). After they have been selected, I entered the SUM formula in a cell so it would automatically be entered in all of the worksheets (invoices).

When I select the same cell in all the worksheets (invoices) I can see that the formula is there. However, when I enter a value that the formula should be adding, it doesn't. But if I select the cell with the formula in it, the formula shows in the formula bar. When I put my cursor at the end of the formula and hit ENTER, the formula then works. So I have to select each formula, in each cell, on every worksheet, hit ENTER, and then, if I need to change a value, I have to repeat the process. I am definitely missing something, and I'm sure it's quite obvious and simple.
