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.
What I want to do is pull data from columns A,B,C,D in 3 other closed workbooks (export.csv, export1.csv, & export2.csv) to my main workbook (Thunder.xlsm)and append that data in columns A-D on my main workbook. In addition I created a list of 10 names (but need to expand or delete from this list as personnel change) in Column O that I would like to filter the data in A-D. The names in the list must find the data I want to keep in column D, the rest I want to delete (not the entire row, just A-D for that particular row that does not match the criteria in column O, and shift those cells up).
I've attached a sample spreadsheet that will clarify what I am asking. I'm preferably asking for 2 macro's, one for the pull of data, and the other for the filtering.
I'm trying to extract data from an external spreadsheet, while leaving that spreadsheet closed... I do not know VBA at all, and I'm unsure where exactly to insert code. See my attached file for details, as I wanted to keep this post short, to comply with your rules
I am trying to make Excel pull data out of a closed file based on a date range. The closed file is a log where people input data and enter the day they are doing it. I need to pull this data in my file and make it print into my worksheets so I can pass a report on to others with only the data they request from the log.
The range would be for 7 days and would have to be able to choose a few columns off this report.
I want to pull data from closed workbook based on cell values of open workbook of column B and the source file name is on cell J1. Actually I save monthly files and opening balnce of current month should take vakues from previous month file.
Suppose current month is May 2008. Then Column Column D for May month shold take value from column G of April 2008. For simplicity the previous month’s name and thus source file name will be placed on cell J1.
The code should loop from column B of source file and current May 2008 file and should pull values for only those items which are in the current file in the Column B. Thus those products which are deleted or newly added item in the current item should not copied. Though for new item no name will be thre in the source file but for deleted items the item might be there in the source file but the code should ignore those value.
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 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 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 program that calls the regress function multiple times (sometimes more than 1,000) per run. With each call to the regress function, a new workbook is automatically opened. For each new workbook opened, I am storing the contents in a workbook array called Models so I can later sort the workbooks based on the value of R squared. The program often has to open and store hundreds of workbooks before the sorting can take place so as to consider every possibility. Once the sorting has completed, I close all of the open workbooks except for the two containing the largest value of R squared. Due to the massive amounts of workbooks getting opened and then later closed, it takes about 30-40 minutes to run my program.
I want to know if after a new workbook has been opened and its value stored in the Models array, can I immediately close it and then later open only the 20-30 workbooks I really need to speed up run time? This way I wouldn't have hundreds of workbooks open at one time. Here's some code to help:
'This function will run regression stats for all possible combinations of models 'with choose variables Private Sub Run_Stats( Combos, ByVal Size, R_Squared, Adj_R_Squared, Std_Dev, Cp_Stat, ByVal Dep_Var, ByVal NumIndepVar, ByVal Observations, ByVal Choose, Reg_Labels, ByVal Residual_Sum, Models)
I have a whole group of workbooks. Is there a way to make a new workbook that will look in the folder containing all of the other customer's books and pull information from them? In other words, I want a workbook where in Column A would contain all of the Customer's Names (Cell Info!G6), Column B would contain the Insurance Company (Cell Info!M14), etc. Is there a way to to that?
I need to import the data from a specific sheet (same named sheet on all closed workbooks) to a sheet in an open workbook. All the columns are identical in every workbook but the number of rows is variable, so the data from each subsequent workbook must be appended to the end of the current data.
Whenever a button is pressed, this macro will clear the sheet, then import the data starting in A3. The workbooks are in different folders but they all have the same name, so some sort of explorer window will probably be needed to actually select each file.
I have tried to write the below VBA to copy a specific cell to a specific workbook. I have set the folder path in B1 and listed the file names in column E4 onwards. E1 being the number of files in column E. I get a run-time error 91 "Object variable or With block variable not set" on Current File = ActiveWorkbook.name.
Sub UpdateParameters() Dim CurrentFile As Workbook Dim wbOpen As Workbook
I've seen a lot of code on how to pull data from workbooks in the same folder. However, I'm trying to pull the data in workbooks in various folders.
For examply, I have one folder, called "Master Files". In this folder is 12 folders, one for every month of the year. Within these folders, is one for each week, with the last day of the week being the name for the folder. In other words, it's like \Master FilesApril4-6-07data.xls
Now, I know how to get the data I need if all files are within the same folder. But how would I write a macro to run through all of those files when they're in separate folders?
I've been using the following code to bring in individual cell values from one closed workbook to an active one. I would like to modify this is possible to bring in multiple cells at once and also pull them into a different worksheet in the active workbook. Basically, my command button is on Sheet1 but I'd like the data to pull into a cell on Sheet2.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() With Range("Q9") .Formula = "='C:Users[Workbook Name.xlsm]Worksheet Name'! N27" .Value = .Value End With
I have a folder that contains hundreds of excel workbooks. Each workbook has 20 or more sheets. All workbooks have the same look and design. All workbooks have macros that they use to function and the macro I want cannot interfere with their macros.
What I want to do is copy certain cell values (some numeric and some text) from several sheets from these workbooks and paste them into another workbook (a master workbook) that is essentially collecting these values into a table without having to open all these workbooks. For example, let’s say all of the workbooks are named with a numeric value starting with “one.xls” and that the sheets in these workbooks are named “a”, “b”, and so on. So, in the master workbook in cell “B2”, I want the name of the first workbook searched (“one.xls”); then in cell “C2”, I want the value from cell “J45” on sheet “b” of “one.xls”; in cell “D2”, the value from cell “B32” on sheet “b” of “one.xls”; in cell “E2”, the value from cell “K13” on sheet “e” of “one.xls”; in cell “F2”, the value from cell “R43” on sheet “k” of “one.xls”. The in cell “B3” of the master workbook, I want the same information as before except from “two.xls” instead of “one.xls”, and so on down to “three hundred.xls”.
it is possible to get a range value from a worksheet without having to open the workbook. I have being trying for a long time to try and work out some code to do the good but have failed miserably. Please find below my latest attempt
Dim shtDataSheet As Worksheet Dim strMfolder As String Dim rngBrokerName As Range
Set shtDataSheet = Worksheets("Data Sheet")
strMfolder = "RD: PEP data files:PEP valuations:PEP 13200s:13235.worksheets(5th Apr 08)"
Set rngBrokerName = strMfolder.Range("brokerName") shtDataSheet.Range("b65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0) = rngBrokerName.Value
I'm trying to find a way to import data from an external excel file that the end-user will ultimately end up choosing using the application. getopenfilename dialogue. I'm able to sucessfully open the file, but what I'm really trying to do is import data from one specific column within the file, preferably without the source spreadsheet popping up.
So, is this possible to do with VBA? Also, will I run into any issues if I try to import from an Excel 2.1 file to an Excel 2003 file using VBA? Finally, I need to be able to import one file, and then be able to add to that an import from another file. I'm thinking that this could be accomplished using a variant variable, but is there already a function within Excel so that I won't have to create my own add-to function.
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 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??
