Merge/join data from sheets in different files into one sheet

The attached file has four sheets that I have placed into one workbook to keep the file as small as possible. In reality, each sheet is in a separate file. The format of each sheet is identical. I would like to merge/join the data from the first three sheets (files) into the last sheet. If possible, it would be helpful if this could be done without having to open the first three files. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Hi there,
First of all I want to thank you for that wonderfull site here.
it makes me happy that there is always someone who can help you in trouble.
I am new for the VBA macros but i like Excel and i am suprised from its power

Here is my problem:
Every month I have *.xls files containing one sheet with different data.
I tried to make a macro whose job was to copy all data from different files into one sheet but i failed .
Please tell me is there some kind of macros which will copy all data sheet from all files into one sheet and to detect every next empty row to paste the information there ?
Please help me !!
if you want more information my e-mail is

hi there,

I have a number of sheets with the same structure but different data. I need the information to sit in the different files for multiple users to be able to update it. Can someone please help me with a solution for compiling/pulling the data ranges in the different files into one file automatically. The ranges may vary although I could set a buffer in the ranges.

Please help.

Let say there is 3 excel files. Each file has one sheet and the same columns,
e.g. column A: product name
column B: description
Column C: Price

How can I combine all the 3 sheets in different files into one sheet of a
new file?
I don't want to copy and paste, because in reality, I have more than 100
files like this.

Thank you!

Hi,

I need to consolidate data in different sheets in different formats into a single standardised format.

I need some way of identifying the column headings from each sheet and populate the data into the standard format.

Would appreciate some help on this ASAP.

Cheers

I am trying to link data from multiple sheets in a file into one sheet. This is the following I want to achieve.

1) I want to pull data from the tab - Tab 1 (in the attached sheet) from column F only if the column E cell has 3, into the "Plan" Sheet in cell D5. I want all the 3's information from Tab 1 (F12, F14, F16 and F17) to be in the same cell D5 with alt+Enter spacing. The trick is these cells may not be always 3 they can be either 1,2,3. So the function needs to go through the entire range E10:E69 to find where there are 3 in the E column and then return the corresponding data from the F column to the "Plan" sheet in Tab 1.

I would really appreciate if someone can help me on this, it has been a nightmare to figure this out.

Thank you friends

Hi All,

I would like to know if it is possible to pull (merge) data from a few excel workbooks into one. Thing is, the data is from a txt file, separated by commas. I usually have to txt-to-column the files before i copy the individual data over (transposed).

Sometimes i will be repeating this process up to 50 times and it is very tedious and time consuming. Is there anyway to make this process easier?

Thanks All!

I need some help copying data from 50 excel files into one sheet without having to copy and paste. I receive around 200 excel attachments a day and they all have the same data and header rows. I just need to put them all on one sheet without having to manually copy and paste each row into a master sheet. Any help would be appreciated. thanks

Could someone please help me with an excel macro to copy data/information
from multiple Excel files (each info is in the same cell and same column
label in each file) into one Excel file , each source file info going to one
row in the destination file.

Hello,

I'm striving to program a macro. I'm a total newbie so I'm always stuck somewhere...

I will collect a lot of files, all of which contain some data into a certain cell or range of cells which will not be named (no named range). The cells are always the same ones for each file. This file will be protected (don't know if it's relevant...).

What I want to do is to program a macro on a separate workbook, which will collect data from all of those files (maybe creating a pop-up window "Open" where I can select multiple files) and then past them into a table.

How can I do so?

THANKS!

Hey everyone –

I have a folder of ~250 excel files containing similar formatted data tables that I would like to combine / merge / append all into one long master file.

The data tables are on the first worksheet of each file, and occupy the columns A-H. Depending on the file, the data occupies anywhere from the first ~20 rows to the first ~40 rows.

Columns ABC are strings, columns DEF are entered numbers, and columns GH are formulated averages referencing pairs of rows in DEF. Because GH are averages of pairs, there is always half as many rows as A-F.

I have attached a screenshot of one of the files to show what it looks like (also linked here): http://img31.imageshack.us/img31/952...enshote.th.png

I would like to copy the data table from each of the files into one master file, making one very “tall” table (the first row of one table would be directly below the last row of the one before it). This means that the data would still occupy only columns A-H, with no empty rows in A-F.

If anyone could tell me how to accomplish this without manually copying each one into the master, it would be much appreciated. I do not have much experience with macros or VBA, but am a quick learner…

Thanks!

I have situation which needs expert advice. I have about 22 Excel files of different branches with similar data. I have to link some calculated cells from each of these files into one file to show the consolidated data. There are about 18 calculated cells in each file, so linking each one is practically impossible.

Hi All,

Need some help with this.

I have a database which has historical tables within it and i want to be able to pull several different tables into one sheet.

I need to know if there is vb code which can pull data with the same query against several different tables into one sheet in excel to then use as a data sheet for further manipulation in pivot tables?

at the moment i am only able to pull back one table at a time and i have about 60 to do.

Thanks for any help on this one.

I regularly have to combine anywhere from 10 to 50 files into one file and I would like a macro that would allow me to combine the data from multiple files into 1 file and in one sheet. I have one that will combine it into one file but puts every sheet into seperate workbooks. That wont work.

I need this to be able to work with both .csv and .xls as well.

Thanks in advance.

I have a list of around 4 thousand people. Each person belongs to one "Group"
which is tagged with a number.

Basically there are two columns one showing the name and one with the group
tag. What i want to do is have the group tags showing all the people who
belong to that group.

So I need to merge the data from a number of cells into one cell without
losing the data. Any ideas?

Hi. I have 32 sheets in a workbook. The only way I've been able to use the code below is to put it on a single worksheet. It runs perfectly on a particular sheet when it's associated with that sheet. I tried putting it as a module on the file and also in ThisWorksheet, but I can't get it to work for every sheet. Is there a way to get this to run for every sheet in the file without copying it to each sheet?

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel
As Boolean)
  'David McRitchie,  2007-09-07    insrtrow.htm on double-click
  '-- will copy more often than  Extend Formulas and Format (tools option)
  Cancel = True
  Target.EntireRow.Copy
  Cells(Target.Row + 1, 1).EntireRow.Insert
  Cells(Target.Row + 1, 1).EntireRow.Select
  ActiveSheet.Paste
  Application.CutCopyMode = False
  On Error Resume Next
  '-- customize range for what cells constants can be removed --
  Intersect(Selection, Range("b:IV")).SpecialCells(xlConstants).ClearContents

End Sub

Thanks!

Hi Friends,

I appreciate your efforts in the team.

I attached one sample excel procedure that is extracting data from source sheet to target sheet. Now I want to extract all the correct records into one sheet and all the wrong records into one sheet (If there is any wrong records such as errors that may null values, wrong dates).

All correct records needs to be stored in worksheet("11514SD") and for wrong records needs to insert new sheet and store in it.

If we click on command button on in source sheet two sheets need to load one with correct and another one with wrong records.

Please kindly refer my attached worksheet and give me appropriate solution.

Thanks & Regards

if i have some & similar data (same format - eg. date wise sales sheets in a
file) in different worksheets of an EXCEL workbook (eg. A1..Z100 in Sheet1
for Ist day of the month, A1..Z100 in Sheet2 for the 2nd day of the month,
A1..Z100 in Sheet3 for the 3rd day of the month, ......& so on - soforth for
a complete month (Sales data except of Saturdays & Sundays).....

How do i copy the Sales data from all the Sheets of the workbook to the
Sheet32 ?
The sales data shd be copied in the following format (preferaably automated
- PLS. DO NOT SUGGEST : Select / copy & paste).

Sheet32
A1..Z100 - Sales data from Sheet1. (First day sales)
A101..Z200 - Sales data from Sheet2. (2nd day sales)
A201..Z300 - Sales data from Sheet3. (3rd day sales)
..
..
..
The data from each sheet should be copied to Sheet32 at the end of the Sales
data copied from the previous sheet in vertical manner.
The objective is to consolidate a months data.
(This is like concatenation, but of an array - similar to the adding of the
records in a database thru an ERP / GUI.)

PLS. SUGGEST / HELP.

Hi all,

I've made a file (Intercept&Covar.xls) which calculate Intercept, Average and Covar using data from different sheets from different file (Data.xls). Can you help me with a solution how to calculate these formulasmaking indirect reference to the shet name and to starting and ending date. I suppose I have to use INDIRECT, INDEX, MATCH functions but I do not know in what mix. Can you help me?

Thanks in advance.

Hello again,

I'm trying to figure out a way to merge the data generated at three different versions of the same workbook (running on three different workstations) into a single workbook, but I'm running into trouble, apparently because the data in each workbook is derived from formulas, rather than being plain, manually entered numbers. An example of the data entry workbook (used for tallying statistics) and the current consolidating workbook are attached.

The workbook "Copy of Desk Tally Robot" tabulates statistics on the worksheet "Results Sheet" based on control button clicks on the worksheet "Input Sheet." The "Save data to Shared Drive" button on "Input Sheet" makes a copy of "Results Sheet" and saves that copy to a folder on a network drive -- the folder and file name derived from NOW() in mmmm and mmmm, dd, yyyy formats respectively, with unique prefixes for each workstation. The code for the save function, since I think it might have something to do with my trouble, is:

Sub Button26_Click()
    Dim InputDate As Variant
    Dim FileType As String
    Dim myFileName As String
    Dim myFolder As String
    Dim myMonth As String
Sheets("results sheet").Copy
    
    FileType = ".xlsx"
    myFileName = "Service Desk 2 Report " & Format(Now(), "mmmm dd yyyy")
    myMonth = Format(Now(), "mmmm")
    myFolder = "J:Library StatsService desk" & myMonth
    
  If Dir(myFolder & "" & myFileName & FileType) <> "" Then Kill (myFolder &
"" & myFileName & FileType)
    
 ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs myFolder & "" & myFileName & FileType
 ActiveWorkbook.Close
End Sub
The "CONSOLIDATOR" workbook also uses a control button which prompts for the workbooks to be merged (this part works) and then places each in its own worksheet (ideally I'd like it to merge the data into a single worksheet automatically, but getting the three worksheets and consolidating them via the Data tab is acceptable for now). Unfortunately, instead of giving me the data from the three worksheets, I get three new worksheets, each with data from the same workbook. The code for the Consolidator is:

Sub Button1_Click()

    Dim FilesToOpen
    Dim x As Integer

    On Error GoTo ErrHandler
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False

    FilesToOpen = Application.GetOpenFilename _
      (FileFilter:="Microsoft Excel Files (*.xls*), *.xls*", _
      MultiSelect:=True, Title:="Files to Merge")

    If TypeName(FilesToOpen) = "Boolean" Then
        MsgBox "No Files were selected"
        GoTo ExitHandler
    End If

    x = 1
    While x <= UBound(FilesToOpen)
        Workbooks.Open Filename:=FilesToOpen(x)
        Sheets().Move After:=ThisWorkbook.Sheets _
          (ThisWorkbook.Sheets.Count)
        x = x + 1
    Wend

ExitHandler:
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    Exit Sub

ErrHandler:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume ExitHandler
End Sub
I notice that when the Results Sheets are saved, individual cells are displaying the values at their last save, but if you click into them, you get a formula referring back to the Input Sheet of the robot on the workstation where data was originally input. Is there a way to either save the Results Sheets as plain values, without referring back, or consolidate them based on the display values, and not the formulae? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and if I've been unclear or left out any useful information, please to let me know.

Thanks,

-Hester's Dad
