    Adapt macro to batch process files

    I have an extensive macro that processes raw .dat files into finished excel sheets - it imports, formats, calculates, graphs and more. The problem now is that I have a huge number of new files that I need to process, so I want to try and further automate the process. Is there a way to add a loop to the macro so that it sequentially goes through a folder and runs on each successive .dat file? My searches so far have found solutions where the batch processing is done all at the same time, due to file sizes and computing power, I would need to do this sequentially.

    Thanks in advance for any tips and guidance!

    Hi beng404,

    Try this - just change the two lines marked with 'change to suit' for your needs:

    The running of the ImportAllBATFiles macro will then run your existing macro (set as Macro1 above) for each .dat file in the 'strDirectory' directory.

    Regards,

    I keep getting a compile error at StrConv saying argument not optional. I am tooling around with it to try and figure it out, will post back if I get it.

    This will really save me an incredible amount of time once it works- thanks so much!

    I didn't figure out what I was missing on StrConv, but did modify your for/next loop to find a work around
