    Find String, copy entire row, paste another workbook next available row.

    Hey,

    I found this vba that looks for a certain string "*ori*" in the M column on a certain sheet and then pastes it into another sheet, but on its matching row.
    In the end id like it to look for the string and copy and paste the entire row to another open workbook, lets say "Master Book" but on the next available row.

    Place this macro in the source workbook and make sure that both workbooks are open. Change the destination workbook name (in red) and the destination sheet name (in blue) to suit your needs. The macro assumes you have headers in row 1 and your data starts in row 2.

    Hey Mumps1!

    Thanks for the response

    The sheet that was created, wasnt made by me and it has all kinds of titles and other information above the table, with merged cells etc, so a filter wouldn't work, thats why i found the previous macro semi useful.

    When i did remove all of the above info so only title headers were at the top, as a test, i got a "400" error anyway unfortunately. Is there a way, similar to my previous one that it can just search for the word?

    First of all, merged cells create serious problems for Excel macros. You should avoid them at all cost. I think that it would be easier to help and test possible solutions if I could work with your actual file which includes any macros you are currently using. Could you attach a copy of your file? If the workbook contains confidential information, you could replace it with generic data.

    Re: Find String, copy entire row, paste another workbook next available row.

    I've thought of another way, which seems to be really simple, it'd be 2 macros, but we can call the second one after the first im guessing, or if not possible, i dont mind them being attached to seperate buttons.

    This one searches an entire folder of workbooks for a keyword and returns the filename, the sheet name and the cell number.

    Is there a way, with those 3 pieces of information to copy the row from the referenced cell.

    It populates a table where the headers are..........

    Workbook - Worksheet - Cell - Text in Cell

    Could a macro then use this information and pull across the row that it appears on.

    The code for the macro im referencing at the moment is

    Re: Find String, copy entire row, paste another workbook next available row.

    That's a bit of "overkill" and would slow down the macro and complicate things. Are you now saying that you want to search column M in all the sheets in multiple workbooks for a particular string which can vary and copy each matching row to a Master workbook? If this is correct, it would make it easier to test possible solutions if you could attach a copy of at least one of your source files and a copy of your master file.

    See attached worksheet.

    The master sheet is just a blank workbook, so just open a new workbook.

    Theres multiple worksheets in the workbook, but this is the sheet id be looking in "Sales To Be Processed".

    If you look in column M theres item codes that contain "ori"

    Its these rows that would need extracting to a new workbook.

    If possible, it would do this search for all of the workbooks in a specified folder and return all results to one sheet in a workbook, one under each other.

    Even if you can complete part of this process or think of another way of doing it, that would be great.

    Cheers

    Run this macro from your Master workbook.

    Re: Find String, copy entire row, paste another workbook next available row.

    Wow!

    Thats incredible!

    3 things.

    1. Is there any way the search term could be an input box, incase they wanted to search for something else?
    2. If a sheet is password protected, can you add in a line to unlock it?
    3. Where did you start to learn all of this. Id love to be able see a problem, in the future, and know how to start working out a solution.

    Re: Find String, copy entire row, paste another workbook next available row.

    Try this macro. Change the password (in red) to suit your needs. You will notice one line of code unprotects the sheet to allow data manipulation. Normally, you would protect the sheet again at the end of the macro but in your case it's not necessary to re-protect it because the file is closed without saving.

    I found that the best way to learn VBA on your own is to use on-line tutorials, searching the web for specific areas of interest and following forums such as this one. A good place to start is the very first post in this Forum. The volunteers on sites such as this one are invaluable at providing help. I would suggest you keep a file of codes that you find useful and in this way you can build up a library that you can refer to. A lot is also trail and error. The more you practise, the better your get at it. The following links may help:

    Re: Find String, copy entire row, paste another workbook next available row.

    Hey Mumps1,

    Sorry to bother you one last time! I PROMISE! haha

    Is there a way it can return the file name that it found the string in?

    Maybe in column A or anywhere easily viewable to be honest!

    Cheers
