I am setting up a series of Excel sheets for my boss, in which one tab gets data from a previous tab. What I am trying to do is find a way for this new column (in the second tab) to be automatically sorted (it is a list of email, so alphabetically). This would than feed into another Excel sheet. I don't want my boss to have to go into that intermediary sheet and click sort himself or have to run a macro. Basically, is there any way to sort an entire column by utilizing formulas. I don't care if I have to create one or many extra columns. Thank you very much. Dan

A:Excel Help - Can you sort a column by using formula (not macro)

I may not be on the right track here, but for me, and my technically challenged bosses, the easiest thing to do is to setup autofilter. if you are using MSOffice 2003 or later it allows you to sort ascending or descending order by clicking the drop-down arrow and scrolling up on the options and selecting the sort order, this also allows for custom sorts, ie you are looking for only the contact details of all the members of a certain company. when i first started with this it seemed awkward but over time even my bosses have come to enjoy this particular feature of MSOffice 2003 and later. the older versions don't allow you to do the sort function on the auto-filter button. otherwise write a macro that runs when you open the spreadsheet.

I was wondering if anyone could help me. I need to extract data from multiple excel files into a new excel file and sum the values. The data comes from excel files that are made from a template so the data is always in the same place or same cells. For example, i have data saved daily in excel files with the following naming convention 080204, 080304, 080404,..... and so on. What i would like to do is have a macro that will create a week ending sheet by importing and summing the data from that week.

I'm using some software to export payment information into a CSV file. This file needs to be in the bank's specified SIF format which requires all the data to be in one column.

The limitation with my software is that the detail of each payment gets exported into it's own separate column. For instance, cells A1:A10 contain payment details to one individual, B1:B10 to another, and so on. I require the whole lot combining into Column A, running from A1:A65536 (it will never go this far down the spreadsheet, but you get the idea).

I've tinkered with some basic copy and delete macros but I'm unable to make the headway that I need to. I don't have the touch when it comes to programming .

Thanks in advance

In a database exported to Excel, a number of records come in for multiple sales people. Each row is a record. However the sales person's name in Column A is only shown once and for each of his records below that, the cells in column A are blank until the first record of the next salesperson, where his name is shown only once, then all his records are shown in subsequent rows, but cells below HIS name are blank (they do not repeat his name) until the first record of the next salesperson, and so on.

In order to sort these records I need to autofill the blank cells below EACH salesperson's name down to where the next salesperson's name first appears, and then autofill the next salesperson's name down to the next one, etc.

This step is part of a larger macro, but I have to end the macro there and do this manually because I can't figure out how to write the code to do it automatically. ??? Hope someone can help!

I am trying to write a macro in Excel... it's fairly simple, but I can't figure out one part. I used the record feature to get started (I'm quite rusty in writting macros)...

What I want to do:
I have lots of data in one worksheet. I want to pick out some of it and put in into another worksheet. I want the row to be variable, the columns set.

For example, I want the info from row 26. I want take the info from worksheet "pricing" cell F26 and put it in worksheet "report" in cell B5.

Excel gives me:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=pricing!R[21]C[4]"

For whatever reason, using the record feature, it's selecting the row and column in reference to the cell that the data is going in to! (B5 + 21 rows + 4 columns = F26)

What I would like is it to pull info from a variable row and fixed column... can you help me with the scripting? I know how to set the variable and such.

I've used Tech support guy for quite a while and almost always find what I need.
I guess it's about time I join and post a question

So this is my problem.
I send out an excelreport every day.
In it I use the content in column X to populate the hyperlink address in column Y.
I've done this manually but now the report is getting bigger and a macro seems in place.
Problem is I just don't know enough about the syntax used in excel.

What I want to do is loop though each row - if there is data in column Y then check in column X.
If X is populated use the data as hyperlink address in column Y (info in Y should still be what is shown).
This should be done for each row where Y is populated.
Then the X column shall be deleted (but I guess I could do that manually )

It feels pretty straight forward and I could do it in RPG or SQL but the syntax in excel befuddles me
Any tips?

A:Excel macro - use info from one column as hyperlink address in another.

Assume Y2 and X2 cells
=if( Y2 = "", "", IF(X2="", "" , do Y2)

but you need to have the formula in Y and change Y - i think that may need a macro, as you are testing Y and also rewriting Y

Hi, I need a macro to use in Excel 2003 that will select all data in a column except the header row. At the moment i am using the following command which works well in most cases

ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select

The catch to this is that if the column contains only one row of or no data then the command selects the entire column! Eek, can anybody please help me to fix this?

Hi All,

I have a list of over 20 or so web sites and their corresponding advertisers and how much money they spend with each web site.

The list of web sites looks like this:
Weather Channel............Dollars..............About.com.......Dollars......etc...for 18 columns

My goal is to consolidate all the advertisers into a SINGLE COLUMN then to the right of it, have all my web sites across as COLULMNS reporting.

should look like this:

............................Travelocity.............. Expedia ....................Orbitz
AT&T Corp...............$78,100................$94,700....................$271,200
Starwood Hotels.......$696,500...............$30,600....................$124,100
Hilton Hotels............$306,700................$900........................$64,200
etc....(for at least 150 rows)

I'd like to be able to have the flexibility to add as many columns (Web sites with advertiser dollar amounts) as possible but have the macro paste the result to a NEW worksheet.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Ok, just a bit of advice needed on this one for the time being...
I need a macro that will:

- Save all (Excel) attachments from the currently open email message (or a message selected in the Inbox) to a directory on the PC.

- Merge all the saved Excel files into a single file - they're all formated exactly the same - data in about 20 columns, no column headers or anything, just standardised data.

- Save the merged file with a standard name (i.e. every time this is ran, it needs to have the exact same filename).

- Delete all the files in the directory apart from the merged file.

I know there's probably a fair bit of code online for doing the individual parts of this. Can I do both from within Outlook? It doesn't particularly matter if I need to do this in 2 steps - an Outlook macro to save the attachements, and an Excel macro to do the file merge etc.

Hi guys,

I have been on the lookout for a macro that will compare 2 worksheets within MS Excel and output the differences on a third sheet.

I am being directed to the URL below but cannot for the life of me work out how to implement this:


There are two snippets of code which I will include here for convenience but not sure whether these should be pasted into Workbook Code (i.e. right-clicking Excel icon left of "File" - top-left), Worksheet Code (i.e. right-clicking worksheet tab) or inserting a new Module - or some other method. Is there anyone here that could guide me to how to implement this code?

Quote from webpage - "With the macro below it is possible to compare the content of two worksheets.
The result is displayed in a new workbook listing all cell differences. "

Sub CompareWorksheets(ws1 As Worksheet, ws2 As Worksheet)
Dim r As Long, c As Integer
Dim lr1 As Long, lr2 As Long, lc1 As Integer, lc2 As Integer
Dim maxR As Long, maxC As Integer, cf1 As String, cf2 As String
Dim rptWB As Workbook, DiffCount As Long
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.StatusBar = "Creating the report..."
Set rptWB = Workbooks.Add
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
While Worksheets.Count > 1
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
With ws1.UsedRange
lr1 = .Rows.Count
lc1 = .Column... Read more

A:Solved: How to use this Macro in MS Excel (compare excel worksheets)

Apologies... I have sorted this... For those that might be looking at this for help here's what I missed:

These are both Sub's that should be created as a Module - both in the same module. I am just comparing worksheets within the Active Worksheet so just removed:

' compare two different worksheets in two different workbooks
CompareWorksheets ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1"), _
Click to expand...

I was then able to run this from Macro's. All sorted.

Apologies again

Hi, I have created an excel macro that runs sensitivities in my model. The excel button runs 5 different cases.

The macro runs fine and does as I want it to.

Once the macro has run, and I go to edit a cell and hit "F2" excel crashes. This only seems to happen in certain cells and not all of the time.

Does anyone have experience with similar questions?

Does anyone know how to run Excel 2003 print macro on Excel 2007 or higher? When I tried running my 2003 macro, the VBA editor pops up w dialogue box, " Run-time error '1004': Method 'ActivePrinter' of object'_Application' failed ".

This is my code: Application.ActivePrinter = "Epson LQ-300 ESC/P 2 on USB003"

Can anyone help?

Welcome to TSG hope we can help you and you can help others.

I'm not an Excel macro guy but you code looks reasonable. What happens if you run this. I suspect printer name is a little off.

Hi Again

Keballah gave me this macro that when I put the cursor in a cell that has for example WW1.xls and then execute this macro it opens up the Excel workbook named WW1. However, when I try to open a PDF file like WW1.pdf I get garbage and not the PDF file. Can someone out there take a look at the macro below as an example and create a new one so that it also brings up PDF files??

Hey all,

Im currently working on a macro of rather large size and im a little stuck at the moment.
The endgoal of the macro is to have a clean file out of all the mess and that can be mailed to other pple of my staff. Now here it comes:
In my example there are 3 tabs: Raw file, Database and Endfile. The point of the whole macro is to look up some things between Raw file and Database and then to write it to the Endfile. The Raw file and the Database are allready macromade and all three sheets have a layout that cant be changed.
--> First thing is that i need to check if the Rapprt N in column L of the Raw file is somewhere in the Database file at column M (CINCUS).
--> IF the number is there I need to check the type wich can be found at column S (CINSTA)
--> IF THEN that type is 7 then it has to be written away to Endfile, what has to be written away is colored blue in my example.
--> IF THEN that type is 8 it has to be written away to the sheet "Type 8" for further investigation, the data is the same (blue colored)
--> IF the number is not found it has to be written away to the sheet "Not Found" with also the same data.

I think thats it, its much i know. But im stuck in finding all the formulas and stuff. So some help is greatly appreciated. Thx in advance.

Hi all

Excellent site! I know I should check for duplicate queries, but couldn't find the search feature as I'm new here and this is my first ever post...

I have two files 'Expenses Analysis' and 'Expenses Form' whereby the user fills out his / her expenses in the analysis file and then transcribes the summary figures into the form on other file, which is then sent off to the finance department.

I've created a simple macro that transcribes the figures between the files when they are both open, but I want it to be clever (=more fool proof) than that. I would like to embed the Expenses Form file into the analysis file, and get the macro to launch the file and enter the figures in one go. (I need to do it this way, rather than combine the functionality, as the Expenses Form is owned by another department and I can't unprotect it etc... ).

Sounds very simple, but I've trouble finding resources on it, as it seems people misuse this functionality for viruses and the like . If another could help me, I'd be much obliged!

I would like to find a way of launching Expenses Form from the Expenses Analysis file, bearing in mind that both files contain macros and a security warning pops up in between.

Kind regards

Is there a way to have Excel open a folder and place the file name with extensions in Column A. Then open another folder and place the contents of that folder into Column B?

I also would like the list to skip adding file to column if it already exist on worksheet, but if a file was deleted from folder it would be removed from the worksheet.

A:Excel 2007 Macro/Folders & Files


Here is a macro that I use quite often ...

Sub Get_File_Names()

[B]'1st directory[/B]

lRowA = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
Range("A1:A" & lRowA).ClearContents

MyPath = "C:\Users\XXXXX\Documents\XXXXXX\" [COLOR=red]'adapt to your requirement - always end with "\"[/COLOR]
Count = 1
MyFile = Dir(MyPath)
Cells(Count, 1) = MyFile
While MyFile <> ""
Count = Count + 1
MyFile = Dir
Cells(Count, 1) = MyFile

[B]'2nd directory[/B]

lRowB = Cells(Rows.Count, 2).End(xlUp).Row
Range("B1:B" & lRowB).ClearContents

MyPath = "C:\Users\XXXXX\Documents\XXXXXX\" [COLOR=red]'adapt to your requirement - always end with "\"[/COLOR]
Count = 1
MyFile = Dir(MyPath)
Cells(Count, 2) = MyFile
While MyFile <> ""
Count = Count + 1
MyFile = Dir
Cells(Count, 2) = MyFile
End Sub

Unless identifying which files are new and what's been deleted is important I would just delete the previous list and get all current files - as I've done in this code.

Good day,

I have an inquiry, I wanna ask if there is a way to get the contents of .txt #1 file and place it in a sheet in excel starting from cell A2, then the macro will look for the end of the copied .txt file in excel...offset it by 3 cells down then paste the contents of .txt #2.

Then the macro should also be able to delete the pasted values from .txt #2 and replace it with .txt #3 at any time should the user choose to do so still making sure that it's below .txt #1.

The data is actually being used by a pivot table, it would just refresh everytime we have a new .txt file coming in without replacing the first part. Oh...i don't have Access on my system, I only have VBA in Excel and the text files to use.
