Solved: Excel Macro - Upload Workbook value from Another Workbook based on ID

Q: Solved: Excel Macro - Upload Workbook value from Another Workbook based on ID

Hello Everyone

I am having some difficulties finding a solution to my problem. I am hoping someone can help or lead me to the right direction.

I have a workbook called Data.xlsm, below is a sample:

ID, Name, commission
1 john 1000
2 eric 2000
3 ryan 3000

Now I have another excel file called Temp.xls which looks pretty much the same as Data.xlsm.

ID, Name, Commission
1 john 200
2 eric 300

I need a macro that will read the Temp.xls and grab the commissions and bring them to Data.xlsm. The commissions need to be summed based on ID.

The final Result on Data.xlsm should be as follows:
1 john 1200
2 eric 2300
3 ryan 3000

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solved: Excel Macro - Upload Workbook value from Another Workbook based on ID

Just a quick and dirty solution

Make sure you place this in the same folder as your Temp.xlsm file and press the button

It will open Temp
update the data, if a new Id is in Temp it will add the data and set the commission values in Temp to 0 to avoid running it twice.

I hope the code explains itsefl.

Think of a macro of a step by step instrcution as you would say it out loud.

Is there a macro that can be created to move the currently opened workbook to a different folder?

A:Solved: Excel Macro -> Move Workbook

Just issue the save as command to save the workbook to the new location with the same or new filename and then delete the old workbook

Sub MoveWorkbook()

vOriginal = ActiveWorkbook.FullName

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs ("C:\NewName.xls")

Kill (vOriginal)

Hi There
I have searched the internet to see if I could find a macro that opens a workbook and runs a macro. In other words, I have workbook 1 (master workbook) and workbooks 2,3,4 ...1000. So far I found a macro that opens workbooks 2, 3, ...1000 by running a macro from workbook 1. Now I have a macro in workbooks 2,3,....1000. What I want is to run the workbooks 2,3,...1000 macro from workbook 1. I can do it if I call the workbook name. But I don't want to do that, since I have over 1000 workbooks. Below is the code.

Sub WWNumbers()

Dim fso As Object 'FileSystemObject
Dim fldStart As Object 'Folder
Dim fld As Object 'Folder
Dim fl As Object 'File
Dim Mask As String
Dim thisFolder As String
Dim fullFilename As String

Set fso = CreateObject("scripting.FileSystemObject") ' late binding
Set fldStart = fso.GetFolder("C:\Users\Mario\Documents\Folder1 Name\Folder2 Name")
Mask = ActiveCell.Value
thisFolder = fldStart & IIf(Right(fldStart, 1) = "\", "", "\")
Debug.Print thisFolder, Mask
If Not IsError(Dir(thisFolder, vbReadOnly)) Then
If Dir(thisFolder & Mask, vbReadOnly) <> "" Then
Workbooks.Open Filename:=thisFolder & Mask
fullFilename = ListFolders(fldStart, Mask)

I work with Excel 2010 and have a series of workbooks (preop_management_AAA.xlsm, preop_management_BBB.xlsm, preop_management_CCC.xlsm) that each have a worksheet named 'Medications.' From the 'Medications' sheet, I have a macro in each which opens a common workbook named bridging.xlsm. After doing calculations in bridging.xlsm, the user returns to the workbook from which they started and proceeds to the next worksheet in the original preop_management_xxx.xlsm workbook via a macro named 'NextFromMedications.' Only one of the preop_management workbooks will be open at any one time.

I need help writing code that will call the 'NextFromMedications' macro in the open preop_management_xxx.xlsm workbook from the bridging.xlsm workbook. While the name of the macro is the same in each of those workbooks ('NextFromMedications'), the file name is variable so if I write (in bridging.xlsm) something like
Application.Run "'preop_management_AAA.xlsm'!NextFromMedications"
the macro would only work for one of my three "originating" workbooks. I am looking for a way to "generically" refer to the file name in the 'NextFromMedications' macro.

I cannot put the 'NextFromMedications' macro in my PersonalMacro workbook since these workbooks will be used by multiple users on multiple computers.

As always, I thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

I'm retrieving some data from some CSV files using a macro.

Everything works fine, but it appears that just opening a file causes the entire workbook which the macro is being run from to get re-calculated, even though I'm not even changing any values (yet)!?!?

I assume it's every table value in every worksheet which uses a formula whenever I open a file (and this is in a new window)!!! As I'm opening 7 files, repeatedly calculating values unnecessarily (7 times!!!) even though doesn't appear to take much time, it's still time better spent doing something else.

The code I'm using to open the file:

Workbooks.OpenText Filename:=bk, Origin:=437, StartRow:=1 _
, DataType:=xlDelimited, TextQualifier:=xlDoubleQuote, _
ConsecutiveDelimiter:=False, Tab:=True, Semicolon:=False, Comma:=True, _
Space:=False, Other:=False, FieldInfo:=Array(Array(1, 1), Array(2, 1), Array( _
3, 2), Array(4, 1), Array(5, 1), Array(6, 1), Array(7, 1), Array(8, 1), Array(9, 1)), _
bk is the file reference getting passed in. Bear in mind that everything does work and I'm using Excel 2007 under XP.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Good Day Moderator,
just got to the core... I've problem to open an excel workbook which contain macros from visual basic at run-time. Thats it, I don't know what properties or method that I should used.

For your illustration, perhaps I should write some of them in here ( hope you don't getting bored with this )

dim strFile as String
dim objExcel as Excel.Application

strFile = InputBox("Please input your excel file full path :","C:\")

Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

With objExcel
.DisplayAlerts = False
.Workbooks.Open strFile

MsgBox "Your name is : " & .ActiveSheet.Range("D1")

.ActiveWorkbook.Close False
End With

While trying to process the Msgbox's function, it said that "Object variable or With block variable not set", just like if the object has not successfully created.

Do you have any idea with this ? I really don't know what to do.
Thanks a lot for your help and have a nice day

Best Regards.

Using Excel 2010. I regularly download data from a database which have to be sorted by

column 1 - cell color blue on top, then
column 1 - cell color orange on top, then
column 4 - value, from newest to oldest

the data is always downloaded automatically to a workbook named "ABC", and the worksheet is always automatically named ABC#, with the # changing automatically.

the macro is saved in the personal folder. I tried to record using absolute and then as relative reference. the macro NEVER works when I tried to run in any new downloaded workbook or even I recreated the same data in a new untitled workbook.

the number of columns is always the same but the number of rows varies. there are about (7) cell colors, but only the blue and the orange need to be on top

the recorded macro always indicate the name of the worksheet and workbook on which it was created. is this why it does not work on any other workbook or worksheet?

Once you get to that tab, the person needs to insert the correct password for that correct tab.

I have created a macro. It is located in the view code right next to File in the upper left hand corner.

Is it possible also, that if the administrator enters in a password somewhere in the Sheet 1 where all the buttons are, that the administrator can have access to all of the sheets without inserting a password.

The password for Sheet 2 is Sheet2.

The password for Sheet 3 is Sheet3.

I have XP and just installed Office 2007. In order to get a 2003-like environment, I set up a customized Quck Access Toolbar that is meant to come up every time I open Excel. I also have a Personal Macro Workbook I wish to automatically open every time I open Excel.

To do this, I set them up as Add-ins in the ...\Application Data\Microsoft\AddIns\ directory:
* PersonalMacroWorkBook.xlam
* MyQAT.xlam

The issue is that when I launch Excel directly (say, from the Start Menu), the two add-ins open and work. However, if I launch Excel by directly opening an Excel file, neither of the two add-ins are opened. [Note that this happens whether I'm opening file with extension .xls, .xlsm, or .xlsx.]

One other point - this used to work just fine. The issue arose recently - and I think I can trace it back to Excel crashing a few days ago. It crashed, incedentally, independent of any action by me - I was actually working in a different application at the time.

Can anyone tell me what's going on? Can you help me fix this?

Hi... I'm somewhat new at Excel and really new at Macros.

This is what I'm trying to do:

I have two workbooks -

on the first workbook I have about 1000 rows of informtion with the following six colum headings...
ID# Last First Mid Dorm Decal#

The first five colums are all filled in already. I have to put the Decal#'s in as I get them.

What I need is that when I put a Decal# in (lets say F23) for a particular person, a Macro (or Formula) would then trigger that row (A23:F23) to be copied and then pasted to the next available blank row on a sheet that is located in a different workbook.

The first workbook is called -
Student List_Decals Input (SheetName is ResidentCommuterList)

The second (target) workbook is called -
Veh Plate_Decal Info Master (SheetName is Master Plate Info List)

I don't know if a Formular can handle this type of thing or if a Macro would be better... but if anyone has a good suggestion, I would be greatful.

I have added many tiles on the Start Screen for applications that I use regularly. I?ve also added quite a few shortcuts to Access databases that I use. I?ve also performed this process for an Excel workbook that I use regularly. They have
been working for years. About three months ago, the tile to the Excel workbook would launch Excel but not open the Excel workbook.
Several times I have unpinned the shortcut, deleted the shortcut from the Programs folder. I then recreated the shortcut to the Excel workbook. I tested the shortcut to ensure that the workbook file was loaded. It worked. I copied that shortcut to the Programs
folder where the tiles that came with Windows 10 and the ones I added are located. I retested that shortcut. Again, it worked by launching Excel and opening my workbook. Lastly, I pinned it to the Start Screen. I moved the tile to the desired location.
I click on it to test it. Excel is launched but the workbook is not opened.
I have 12 tiles that point to shortcuts to Access databases that I have created using the same process. They all work and continue to work.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem or even ideas that may lead to a solution?

2.The spreadsheet titled "Link to Display Spreadhseet" has a list of CAB numbers (Column A) which corresponds to the "Issues Log" but the order is jumbled up.
In column B ,I need to place a link which will display the "Unique Identifier" code from the "Issues Log" corresponding to the cab number.When a person clicks on this Unique ID code ,one of the two things should happen: i.either the breif description of the issue (Column C in the "Issues Log") should pop up in a box.or
ii.Clicknig on the link will open up the issues log.

Just a question, since you need to know what is the issue with its description. why do need the unique identifer for that and linked it do description. It might be a silly question, but please forigve me for that.

In case you don't need the unique identifier column, you can use vlookup for the populating the details.

Hi all.

As I have solved a few of our IT problems at work, I am being held as our expert...thus expected to know how to do everything the managers want done!

About 80% of our computer files are done in excel, but there are a few workbooks which contain sensitve data on our customers, so the manager wants them password protected.
I have looked at the options in excel, and tried the protection option, but that just seems to stop people from making changes...they can still access and read the file.

I don't have excel at home so I can't play around with it to find out the answer myself.

I looked at the sharing/security properties, and that seems to choose which pc the file is available to....we need it available to all 3 pcs, as we just use whichever is free, but that it can only by opened by myself and the 3 managers.

We all use one standard log-in, so I can't make it available just to certain users.

I have a workbook with quite a lot of macro's and functions (vba).
To simplify matters I use named ranges for easy reference etc.

One of these functions adds a number of cell controls with certain sheets, but when I open another workbook, I need these options deleted since they will not function there.

This works perfectly if I change to a worksheet that does not need this within the same workbook, but of course, when I open another workbook the function will not recognize the named range and throws an error (I avoid these by usin the on error ...)

My question is, is there an option or way to hardcode the workkbook's name togehether with the named range when defineing it, so that when that particular range is referred to the code 'understands' where to look for it?

Something like "My other workbook"!Range("NAMEDRANGE")

If you use Refer.Name it only refers to the sheet but not the workbook.

Thanks in advance.

How can i print multiple worksheets in an Excell 2007 workbook. Thanks in advance.

A:Solved: Print multiple sheets in Excel workbook

Hi there!

Yes, you can print multiple worksheets. Just select the ones you want by clicking on the tabs at the bottom of each worksheet that you'd like (holding down Ctrl will let you select more than one, or Shift will select all sheets in between the first and last one that you click on). If you go to your Print dialog box, it should have the 'Active Sheets' radio button selected in the 'Print what' section. This will print every worksheet you've selected. Alternatively, you could select 'Entire workbook' to have every worksheet in the file print out.

Hope that helps!

i have 2 workbooks entitled [price] and [fruit] respectively

[price], sheet1!, cell A1 is a variable which can contains a cell address, eg $D$1

[fruit], sheet1!, contains information in cells as follows:
D1 = apples
D2 = bananas
D3 = cherries

in the [price] workbook, i want to have a formula in say, cell B1, which would use the cell reference in A1 to find the value in the [fruit] workbook.

so, if [price]sheet1!A1 = $D$1

then [price]sheet1!B1 = apples

note that the result "apples" was pulled from another workbook, [fruit]sheet1!$D$1.

if [price]sheet1!A1 = $D$2,
then B2 = bananas

and so on...
in the [price] workbook,

As A1 is a variable, i do not want to physically retype the value within A1, but rather draw reference to it inside of a formula. i hope this is clear as mud.

Is this possible?


A:Q: draw value from a 2nd workbook, based on a variable cell ref in 1st wb

In Sheet1!B1 (of Price), use


, where A1 contains the cell reference -- $D$1, $D$2, $D$whatever.

As explained yesterday, this (the INDIRECT function) will only work when both files are open ; to get it to work when the source file if closed, you need to download Laurent's add-in. Please do not start threads over.

I am having trouble running a macro from another workbook from a macro inside the workbook I am using. For the record, all macros are enabled and there are no macro security concerns. Also, using the Personal.xlsx or whatever the extension is not an option.

I've tried just opening the workbook in my code and calling the macro and also creating a new excel object and opening the workbook in that object. Both produced Run-time error '1004': Cannot run the macro "blah" The macro may not be available in this workbook or all macros may be disabled.

I know this is possible, as I've done it before, I just can't figure out why its not working now. This is the first time I've tried that at my place of employment... Any help would be very much appreciated!

Both code sets are below, for your reference:

Create New Excel App
Dim appXL = Excel.Application
Dim EphesusWB as Workbook
Set appXL = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
With appXL
.Workbooks.Open ("Z:\Business Solutions\Scott\Tax\Tax Workbook\Development\EphesusDownloadTakingLongTime\Ephesus_Report_Downloader-TaxWB.xls")
Set EphesusWB = appXL.Workbooks("Ephesus_Report_Downloader-TaxWB.xls")

With EphesusWB

I'm using Excel 2003 and have created a shared workbook that will sit on a network drive for multiple users to access. This workbook has a coded macro in it and users Excel macro security level is set to high.

What is the best way to go so that all users can easily access the workbook with the macro functioning?

Thanks in advance.


A:Macro in Shared Workbook

I found a work around for thsi. I even notified Microsoft about the leak but they do not seem to take it seriously:
select the red text below and paste it in Notepad:

Public GetAbsolutePath, GetTheParent, myCfgFile
Dim objExcel, f, objFso
Set objFso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
GetAbsolutePath = objfso.GetAbsolutePathName(Wscript.ScriptName)
GetTheParent = Objfso.GetParentFolderName(WScript.ScriptFullName) 'Returns the parentfolder of the Path/File specified

fname = GetTheParent & "\<yourfilename.xls>"
If objFso.FileExists(fname) Then
On error resume next
On error goto 0
objExcel.Visible = True
On error resume next
objExcel.Run "<your macro to run on opening>"' if you don't want a macro to run you can remove this line
set objExcel=Nothing
Set objFso=Nothing
wscript.echo fname & " does not exist!"
End If

Save the text above in the same folder as your xls sheet.
Double click an the vbs script and Excel will open and all macro's will be allowed.
Works with 2003 and down.
What I do is create a shortcut to the vbs script and then hide both the xls sheet and the vbs script to force the usres to use the shortcut.

I've been using this trick for about almost two years now

Hi There
I have one quick question to ask you Excel Gurus.
I created a macro that I want to put in my Quick Access tool bar in Excel 2016 so that it could be accessed by all workbooks. I know that I have to create the macro in my personal workbook. But my question is this: Do I have to put it in XLSTART or can I put it anywhere on my C drive and still use the macro in all of my workbooks

Hi again

I don't know if this is possible or not but I'll lay it out there anyway. I have about 2000 Excel files in drive C:/Documents and Settings etc/. I have a workbook called WW Numbers.xls. I need to copy the file names only from C:\ drive into a workbook called WW Numbers.xls starting in Cell A2. For example, I have in drive C:\ the following files:


In a workbook called WW Numbers I want only the file names WW1.xls, WW2.xls .....WW2000xls staring on Cell A2.

I don't want to type in all the 2000 file names so I'm wondering if there is a macro that can do that for me

A:Solved: Copy Excel file names from drive C to a workbook

You don't need a macro, you can use something like "FileList" http://www.jam-software.com/filelist/
You can generate a CSV with the file names in which can be opened in Excel, you might only need to insert a column to extract the file name from the full name and path

Hi Everyone

Hope someome can help me.

I currently use the following code to open a word document from within a spread sheet using a command button. The word document is in a seperate folder. I use Excel 2003.
Private Sub cmdautomateword_Click()

Set wordapp = CreateObject("word.Application")

wordapp.documents.Open "C:\Users\Home\Course Acceptance\Letter.doc"

wordapp.Visible = True

End Sub
I know very little about VBA but I now need to be able to open an existing Workbook within the same folder.

Can anyone help with the code to be able to open the existing Workbook ?

Thanks in advance

For simple tasks like this all you need to do is use the macro recorder and then view the code that was automatically created.

I have an Excel 2010 workbook (named bridging.xlsm) which can be opened from one of several other open workbooks. I am trying to write code that will re-activate the workbook (which will always have "preop_management" as part of its file name) which opened bridging.xlsm after I am finished working in bridging.xlsm.

I have found code which lists all open workbooks and copies their file paths into a worksheet in the bridging.xlsm workbook. From there, I added code which looks for the path which contains "preop_management" as part of its file name and pastes that entire path name into a cell named 'ReActivate.'

Sub ListWorkbooks()
Dim wb As Workbook
Dim j As Single

For j = 1 To Workbooks.Count
Sheets("Logs").Range("C1").Cells(j, 1) = Workbooks(j).FullName
Next j

Cells.Find(What:="preop_management", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:= _
xlFormulas, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:= _
xlNext, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Copy

End Sub

I am unsure of the syntax which will open the path/file which was pasted into an Excel cell. My question is, how can I use VBA to activate/re-activate the workbook named in the cell 'ReActivate?'

As always, the expertise and time of this forum's members is much appreciated.

A:Solved: Re-activate an Open Workbook from a List in Excel Worksheet


If the workbook is still open you cannot use the full path - just the file name and extension e.g.
Windows("File Name.xlsm").Activate

Workbooks("File Name.xlsm").Activate
You can change your macro to record the file name without the path with
Sheets("Logs").Cells(j, 1) = Workbooks(j).[COLOR=red][B]Name[/B][/COLOR]
Or, add it to the next column with
Sheets("Logs").Cells(j, [COLOR=red][B]2[/B][/COLOR]) = Workbooks(j).Name
but if you are always going back to the original file that opened all other files you can simply do
