    Unhappy Running But Didn't Copy - Combining Data Multiple Workbooks to a Master Workbook

    Hi Everyone,

    I have a form that will disperse to a group of people for reports.
    When they return it to me, I have to combine it all to a Master workbook for final report.

    I'm having problems doing so. Also, the problem is for every reporting excel sheet, there will be a particular model name for it, how do I incorporate it into the Master Workbook.

    This is how my reporting excel sheet will look like to give to people.

    I saw this coding in one of the threads, not sure if this is approritate to use in my situation,

    BUT, there's an error in the coding on the "Next ws" line.

    HELP PLEASE

    Re: Combining Data from Multiple Workbooks to a Master Workbook

    Your post does not comply with Rule 3 of our Forum RULES. Use code tags around code. Posting code without them makes your code hard to read and difficult to be copied for testing. Highlight your code and click the # at the top of your post window. For more information about these and other tags, found here

    Code tags added this time
    Hope that helps.

    There's no code in the example nor any further explanation of what you want to do

    Re: Combining Data from Multiple Workbooks to a Master Workbook

    Hi, thank you! Sorry I missed that rule ): Won't happen again.

    The excel sheet pasted in the first post is the sheet that will be distributed out for people to fill in. I have to collect them back (there will be about 10 of that report coming back) and consolidate it into a single Master workbook.

    I'm not sure how to start or where to paste the code at. Which workbook file do I type in the VBA coding?

    Thank you for your help.

    Re: Combining Data from Multiple Workbooks to a Master Workbook

    Hi, I tried the code by Jerry Beaucaire.


    The code work fine as in it did copied the data from all the reports and consolidate to a main one. But I only wanted to copy the tables (not header), after I used the code, in the Master book, it created seperate header.. look at excel book or print screen for explaination.

    Also, if you look at the excel sheet, at the top of the page, the person doing the report is allowed to choose the vessel name. How should I incorporate it into the master folder?

    This section of code controls what the starting row of the copy is:

    Change A2 to A5, based on what I see in that sample sheet.

    Hi Jerry!

    Thank you for responding. I tried that and this was what happened.
    In the Masterbook (attached) the header is gone after running.

    Re: Combining Data from Multiple Workbooks to a Master Workbook

    Well, again, you can decide what gets erased in the "clear old data" section of code. Go ahead and setup your report with the titles and all in the first 4 rows the way you want, then change this, same as we did for the copy command:

    You could even delete the whole MsgBox and just always clear the old data with just this instead:

    Re: Combining Data from Multiple Workbooks to a Master Workbook

    Hi Jerry,

    Perfect, it works! Thank you.

    Now that I've got that sorted out. How do I detect the Vessel name (in the For People to fill in file) and copy that to the Master Report file?

    *attached both excel sheet for reference and print screen to explain the motion*

    Re: Combining Data from Multiple Workbooks to a Master Workbook

    Hi,

    The code is working fine so now I just want to put the file in a shared drive at work so the only thing I had to change was the path name. I did that. When I clicked run, it looks fine no errors. But, it copied nothing.

    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    ^That was the change I made. Is there any reason why it's not copying anything in the folder I specify?

    Hi thank you for helping me.
    I changed the folder name and I copy it right from the address bar ):

    Re: Running But Didn't Copy - Combining Data Multiple Workbooks to a Master Workbook

    The code as posted won't work if the files are on a different drive from the current directory as there is no ChDrive statement. Change the 'Path and Filename' section to this:

    and also make sure there is a backslash at the end of the fPathDone variable (you don't have one currently).

    Hi,

    Yup the files were previous in C Drive but now have been transferred to I Drive which is why I changed the Path name

    Sorry, I missed a bit - you also need to change the line that opens the workbook from:
