Sending data from one Excel file to another Excel file

Hi,

I'm trying to develop a temporary Excel database system at work until we can get hold of a proper Database system. I would like to create a function using a button to generate VBA code that will submit form data from one Excel document into a general repository within a separate Excel document.

Many people will use the form.xlt file to enter data and submit it to the database.xls file. I cannot find anywhere online which will show me how to connect to another Excel file, create a recordset of the data being capture in my form, and then exporting it to my database xls document.

Many thanks to anyone who can help me out on this.


hi, I'm trying to transfer data from one excel file to another. The format of the file i want to transfer the data to is different from the file I'm getting the data from. How can I transfer these data to different cells. I could copy and paste all the way through but it would take forever. So probably a macro or a piece of code that could help??

Hey guys,

So I am wondering, is it possible to copy data from one Excel file (either Excel version 2003 or 2007) to another Excel file of the same version?

I have data that is in once Excel file that is being updated often, about every 20 seconds, by way of a DDE link through RS Linx.
Since the data is being update by the link, I was wondering if there was a macro that could copy the data when a Boolean value changed.
For example:
If (part passed test) = True Then
copy cells A1-A6 to "C:GPD_Oct_2011.xls" and [SpecificSheet(s)WithinthatWorkbook] 'GPD - good part data
Else
copy cells A1-A6 "C:BPD_Oct_2011.xls" and [SpecificSheet(s)WithinthatWorkbook] ' BPD - bad part data
End If
In every instance I will need the data from one worksheet in one workbook to copy to another workbook where it will be needed to be copied to two different sheets maximum.
For example:
Part 1 is of part type ABC. Part 1 passes the testing and came off of tester 1.
That means the data for that part needs to be copied to the GPD_Oct_2011.xls file, to the ABC sheet and the tester 1 sheet. Both sheets are inside the GPD_Oct_2011.xls file.
Part 2 is of type XYZ. Part 2 does not pass testing and came off of tester 4.
That means the data for that part needs to be copied to the BPD_Oct_2011.xls file, to the XYZ sheet and the tester 4 sheet. Both sheets are inside the BPD_Oct_2011.xls file.
I hope I gave you all enough information to adequately describe my problem.
Thanks for your help in advance!

Is there any way to insert data from one excel file into another without
doing copy and pasting? I need to automate the process of inserting data but
I cannot use copy-paste, because it puts data on a clipboard, and my Excel
VBA program runs in a multi-user environment. So if one instance of a program
is copying data into clipboard, and another instance is pasting it at the
same time, it will paste incorrect data.

Thank you

How do I export data from one .xls file to another .xls file? For example, one sheet has all the data for patients, time of surgery, age, etc. We needed to export data to another excel file (a daily template) that does not disclose certain rows, columns, or cells of information, i.e. do not disclose age of patient, etc.

Bottom line is how to get certain rows, cells, or columns that you specify to show on another excel file, exported.

Thanks!

Hey,

I have a rather simple issue I guess. I am trying to transfer data from one excel file to other. I tried using the following code but it shows some funny text that I dont understand. Can someone please help me resolve this fast.

ChDrive s
ChDir s
If LCase(fName) = "false" Then Exit Sub
With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add _
(Connection:="TEXT;" & fName, _

Hi!

I would like to copy several sheets from one Excel file to another excel file. Is there any easy way to do that instead of copying one at a time. Is it also possible the sheet name is automatically copied?

Please advise,

Aijun.

I'm pulling data from another system into an Excel-file and this is done dynamically so the Excel file is updated automatically. Then I have another Excel file which also works dynamically. Currently I have a third file which pulls data from two others. What I'd like to do is to have these two files merged into one, so that I would only have one Excel-file to work with. I have tried Import External Data-option and things work out well as long as I have all the three files open but as soon as I close these two "sub-files" the data cannot be delivered anymore to the third file. So it seems that every time I need to open all three files. Is there a way to merge these two "sub-files" into one for example so that one would be another's sheet or does anyone have a better suggestion?

Thank you in advance for any advice.

I have many grade book in excel for different subjects and grade levels. Each grade book requires the student information for input such as student name, nick name and ID number. Is there a way to input the data in one excel file and have it automatically transfer to all the grade book excel files. This would be less work for the teachers. If any has an idea or A VB code to do this it would of great assistance.

How do I move a sheet from 1 Excel file to another? I tried the "move or
copy sheet" function, but in the "To Book" dropdown list, the only things
listed are the current book or a "new book" -- the one I want to move it to
is not listed.

I've got a problem with some data I want to compare and copy, from one xls-file to another xls-file. That I hope someone can help me with.

I've made a macro, that can copy the data I want copied. But now there's more then one row to copy, and it's not sure that all the data need's to be copied. So the macro must be able to compare the data, and if the data is the same in the given row, it should not copy that the data, but continue to the next row. Until al the rows a compared.

Here is det code I've made. (This just copies the data.):

Sub Bank1Slot1()
'
' Bank1Slot1 Macro
' Macro recorded 17-11-2008 by Godfasher

    Workbooks.Open Filename:= _

I would like to make a Macro that exports information from one excel file to a master file. I have many files for different jobs that add all of the costs associated with it, and compiles it into 5 different categories. The master file is a listing of each job with the 5 categories listed across. (Each row is a job, and each column is a category)

We have run into problems with people making typos in the transferring from one file to the master, which is why I wanted to make a macro. I took a some classes back in my college days, and at one time I know how to do it (sort of) but that was a few years ago, and now I dont even know where to start.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Everyone,

I need to copy the data from one excel spreadsheet to another. My first excel spreadsheet has values like below

7654 8763
Date Talk time Handle Time handle15 TotaldelayTime xPTime POTime TCTime Talk time Handle Time handle15 TotaldelayTime xPTime POTime TCTime

1
2
3

Another excel spreadsheet say spreadsheet1, I have

7654
date Talk time Handle Time handle15 TotaldelayTime xPTime POTime TCTime

8/01/2010 5 10 8765 5432 8 987 234,786
8/02/2010 985 20 244 9876 9 10 123424
8/03/2010 444 222 244 9876 9 10 123424

8763

8/01/2010 444 222 244 9876 9 10 123424
8/02/2010 444 222 244 9876 9 10 123424
8/03/2010 444 222 244 9876 9 10 123424

(the numbers might not be matching with my attachment numbers)

I need to copy data from spreadsheet1 to spreadsheet2(please see attachment) in the same order when the date matches the above date so for e.g 8/01/2010 matched 1 and number 7654 matches number 7654 with the above sheet then the data should be copied from bottom spreadsheet to above spredsheet. The bottom spreadsheet will keep going for 7654 , 8763, 9876 and so on, there are total 14 of them. In the above spreadheet, these 14 numbers are displayed horizantally so I have 7654, 8763, 9876 and son and for each of these numbers, I have, Talk time Handle Time handle15 TotaldelayTime xPTime POTime TCTime in horizantal form.

How can I accomplish this in Excel macro. Any help will be greatly appreciated. (I have attached both the spreadsheets)

Thanks

Hello to all!
I have two excel files and want to copy data from one file to another. My copping array in first file is not continual in other words I have a lot of rectangles of data in Excel Sheets. How can I copy all this rectangles (I know their address) most quickly to other Excel file?

Greetings from the Philippines!

I am working for a news broadcast network in the Philippines. Currently, we are working on a story on the performance of our lawmakers by looking at the quality of bills they file in Congress.

Our political system allows lawmakers to be reelected on three terms. According to experts, this political set up has allowed this phenomenon: the bills they filed from previous Congress are rehashed in the present Congress. However, empirical data are scarce, or worst non-existent. Experts base their opinion on anecdotal evidence.

It is in this light that we would like to study this phenomenon. We would like to shed light on the magnitude of this issue by being the first network or agency that would embark on an empirical study.

We have retrieved from our Congress’ database the list of bills our lawmakers filed in the 13th and 14th Congress. The bills are formatted in Excel format.

Historically, more than half (of the 200 plus) lawmakers are reelected every Congress, and roughly, they principally author more than 30 bills every Congress. This presents a major obstacle in our study.

In this regard, we would like to seek assistance from you.

We would like to know whether the bills they filed from previous 13th Congress were re-filed in the 14th Congress. We hope that you could assist us in knowing what Excel command or function could make our study easier and faster.

Most of the bill titles are very long such as AN ACT STRENGTHENING THE FAMILY AND PRESERVING THE SOLEMNITY OF MARRIAGE CEREMONY REPEALING AND AMENDING CERTAIN PROVISIONS OF EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 209 OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE FAMILY CODE OF THE PHILIPPINES AS AMENDED.

That’s why it is hard for us to really do simple Excel IF function or manually look it up from one Excel sheet to another Excel sheet. In the past three decades, we have already 8 Congresses.

And since most of their bills are mere rehashed, sometimes lawmakers do some tweaking by changing the title to make it current. For instance, a lawmaker puts a title “Reproductive Health of 2005.” The bill was archived from the previous Congress. Because he’s reelected in the present Congress, he again refiled the bill and renamed the title “Reproductive Health of 2008.”

We hope that the command is not too strict to account for such variance.

Do assist us as we would like to shed light on this issue. Here is my email: *removed*

Yours respectfully,

Hi,

I need to move and match data from one excel file to another. There is a common column between the two. One file has a column of skus and corresponding UPC codes in another column. The other file has a column with some of the same UPC codes and product names in another column. I would like to merge the two and have the product name match the skus based off the common UPC codes. Is this easily done with a function?

Guys

I need to copy data from one excel file to other. Am doing this in
asp.net with c# as backend code. Do I need to two excel Application
objects? No matter if I use two excel objects or one, I am ending up
with one excel object in memory even after closing them. Whats the best
way to do this without leaving any Excel apps around? Please help.

Heres what my code looks like:

Excel.Application exclApp = new Excel.ApplicationClass();
Excel.Workbook... srcWb = Open("source.xls",...)
Excel.WorkSheets srcSheets
Excel.Worksheet srcSheet

Excel.Workbook dstWb = open("dest.xls",....)
Excel.Worksheets dstSheets
Excel.Worksheet dstSheet..

dstSheet.range = srcSheet.range;

cleanup..

I call ReleaseComObject() on all above objects and finally.

exclApp.Quit();
GC.Collect();

Hi

I am having a problem to copy rows from one excel sheet to another in the same XLS file, based on the condition.

Can any one can help on this....

thanks

Hi All,

This is regarding "Automatic update of Cell values from one excel workbook to another workbook".

Our company is producing a product. After Inspection staff will key in the type of defect in one cell and Batch no. (in numerial 5 digits) on another cell below it. So each cell value have different values. The defect type ("Text" type) varies and the batch no. too.

If the part have no defect, they will leave the cell empty.

Say they are keying in the defect and batch no into Book 1. I need those keyed in values in "Book 1" should be copied in to "Book 2" under two column "A" (for defect) and "B" (for Batch No).

Whenever they click the cell and if the cell have any "Text" values they need to be copied to the "Book 2" in column "A" and "numerial value (for batch no)" to be copied in Column "B".

As you guys are expert in this technology, Pl. advise.

Thanks.

M Muthu.
