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 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.
It is quite standard to create links between workbooks, and generally I do this by inserting an "=" sign in the cell I want data to appear in for Workbook 1, I then open workbook 2 where the desired data is and click on the cell housing the data I want.
I just went to do this, and upon putting the = sign in the cell I want in workbook 1 and clicking in workbook 2 nothing happens except my cursor is now in workbook 2 and the = sign just remains alone in the workbook 1 cell.
If, however, I put an = sign in a cell in workbook on and then click another cell in that sheet or a cell in another worksheet but in the same workbook a proper link is created, so the problem seems to be isolated to links to other workbooks.
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 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 am trying to create a master price list, where the 1st file called MasterPriceList will list all of our ingredients and their prices.
It would look like this: A_________B ING______Price 1 Ing 1___$1.00 2 Ing 2___$1.50 3 Ing 3___$2.00 4 Ing 4___$3.00
My second workbook is is a template for when we need to formulate blends. It looks something like this: A______B______C_______D__ 1 Ing 1__50%__$1.00__$0.50 2 Ing 3__50%__$2.00__$1.00
We want to pull the cost of the ingredient from the MasterPriceList and populate column C with that value.
I have tried copying and pasting a link. This works fine until I insert a row. Even If I make the link relative (='[MasterPriceList.xls]Sheet1'!$C1), it will only adjust if both worksheets are open at the same time. Since we will have over 200 pricing sheets, it would be impractical to have them all open every time we have to insert a new ingredient into the MasterPriceList workbook.
I have tried to use VLOOKUP but it will not work across workbooks and the same is true with Drop Down lists. I read a tutorial, http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ex...995141033.aspx , which details how to create a drop down list across workbooks but when I come to the step of defining the validation list, I get a message saying that it can't be done across workbooks.
I have created a link in workbook "A" to another workbook "B" by copying the cell in workbook "B" and using "Paste Special" and "Paste Link" in workbook "A". I did this for 1,000 rows so that when I update the workbook "A", it will take in any new data.
However, if a cell does not have a value in it, the cell in workbook "A" returns a "0".
To avoid this, I figured I could use a statement like =IF('C:[B.xls]tabname'!A45="","",'C:[B.xls]tabname'!A45).
It worked in the case of worksheets, but in others, it only returns "#########". If I hit "F9" it doesn't refresh the data to return the value, so I assume something silly is going on here.
I have three workbooks stored in the same drive(shared drive). Let's call them 1.xls, 2.xls and 3.xls. Each workbook has one sheet.Column A in all sheets is the same. I want to make the following linking:
-Column A of the sheets in 2.xls and 3.xls to be linked and get data from column A of the sheet in 1.xls. -Column B of 1.xls to be linked and get data from column B of 2.xls and column C of 1.xls to be linked to column B of 3.xls.
So far it sounds easy. What I cannot find is what to do when I insert a row in the sheet in 1.xls and write something in column A. I managed from DATA- IMPORT EXTERNAL DATA to refresh column A of the sheets in 2.xls and 3.xls, so that these columns contain the updated information. I cannot do the vice-versa procedure: for example, to insert something in column B of the sheet in 2.xls and refresh the values of column B of the sheet in 1.xls. The fact is that when I insert a row in 1.xls the right references get lost and move one cell up. I want the references to remain stable. In a way the sheets are interdependent.
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 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 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).
I have a workbook called Pricing.xls that contains *multiple* external links. The Pricing WB summarized monthly data, the trick is that each month is in a different WB (*DEC06.xls), and the big problem is that there are dozens WBs a month.
I am using vlookups to get the data from external WBs.
The way that it is being done currently is; the formula is copied across month to month, and them manually editing the link in the formula bar. This seems to half work, but causes Excel grief. Is there a way to link to multiple work books without manually linking them each time?
One folder on the drive contains excel files, which are created daily from a template. I use these files, the 20 most recent days' worth, to create an analysis file. This new file is organized in rows, starting with the date. The files I am using are all saved in the form "Stats yyyy mm-dd.xls" The first line of each row of the analysis spreadsheet starts with the date, in the format "yyyy mm-dd". Is it possible to create a macro, or in another way, for the analysis spreadsheet to automate the reading-in of data from these different files?
