    Search multiple workbook headers and copy column entries to another workbook

    Hi guys,
    I've been trying to find something that will help me with this but haven't found anything I can manipulate to suit my needs.
    My problem is this:

    I have many workbooks in a folder, lets say c:\temp\book1.xls, book2.xls...book100.xls
    I have another workbook in c:\main.xls
    Each of the workbooks in c:\temp contain different columns in different orders, but they all have one consistant column header labelled 'Phase' in the first row (the column number is not the same however).
    main.xls also has a column labelled 'Phase'.
    Also the column may occur more than once in a workbook.

    What I'm looking for is a macro that I can run from main.xls, that will look through all of the workbooks in c:\temp, search the top row until it finds 'Phase' and copy all of the non blank entries in that column, and put them into the 'Phase' column in main.xls, one after another (essentially making one big list of all the phases from the workbooks in c:\temp.
    Additionally, if possible, i would like it to put the name of the workbook it found the entries in next to it.
    For example, main.xls would ideally look like this:

    Workbook Phase
    Book1 phase1
    Book1 phase2
    Book1 phase3
    Book2 phase3
    Book2 phase4
    Book3 phase1
    Book3 phase3

    Is anyone able to help me out? This would be MUCH appreciated as it would save me soooo much time!

    Thankyou!!!

    That's fantastic! Thanks!
    Theres one issue though. It copies all of the data across to the main spreadsheet, but it overwrites itself rather than listing down the columns?

    Re: Search multiple workbook headers and copy column entries to another workbook

    hi
    it should copy the contents of each cell below a heading "Phase" to a new row in the master sheet - this bit of code should add 1 to the destination row each time a new phase is copied:

    PhaseLast = PhaseLast + 1

    or is the problem with the workbook? if you want the contents of the cell to read

    workbook1 phase 23

    try this variation:

    Nevermind, it was an error I made when I copied it over and made it suit.

    Thankyou so much!!!!
