Macro for consolidating excel files
An easy to understand tutorial can be found at The Excel VBA editor. Open Filename:=Path & Filename, Read Only:=True For Each Sheet In Active Workbook. Select ' select all cells in this sheets Selection. Hi All, I have around 10-15 excel files in a folder which are refreshed each week. REgards, Hi From your code it looks like you are using Excel2007 or later?I need to loop through these files and copy the data form them into one master sheet. Can you attach an empty sample datafile, with just the headings?Here you will need to use the 'help options' for the specific process; but what you will be doing is "mapping" two or more documents together which share 1 category of redundant information (i.e. For example, if each the worksheet has a person's NAME, along with another column or information.you would map the NAME in each worksheet, then select the additional fields you want captured in your output. A: A,0))) Type this formula in a blank cell within the row/entry you are comparing.Sometimes you just need to merge hundreds of Excel files into one. For CSV files you can easily use the Command Prompt, for Excel you’ll need some VBA scripting.
There isn’t a dedicated tool in Excel to append multiple datasheets or workbooks together.
Working with many individual files can be time consuming so use below VBA scripts to merge individual XLS-files into one or combine multiple tabs into one sheet. Close Filename = Dir() Loop End Sub Sub Combine() Dim J As Integer On Error Resume Next Sheets(1).
Simply go to the Visual Basic Editor (Alt / Fn F11), add a new module and run the script.
It has a query that was built manually, and has a button to refresh the data.
With this solution, you'll end up with a normal pivot table, with none of the limitations.
I plan to create the macro in a mast file called Pipeline Consolidated and run it form this workbook so dont want this file to open. Can you give us an idea of the filenames you are using for the 10-15 excel files? HTH, Maud Hi Although the code from Maudibe will loop through all files in a specified folder, I would advise against this method for merging data into a consolidated file. Also, your code would need to test each file is of the 'expected' type i.e. (You could use a 'file-naming' convention to deal with this) It would be better to have a specified list of pre-defined 'source' files.
