    Copy Paste revision

    Igot this VBA code on this forum. It works perfectly for my purpose but I justneed some help for a small revision.

    Insteadof selecting or looking for the file, I want to have a code to select thespecific drive and file. The file to be imported is from drive Z:\SHARED\DATA\LOCATION.xlsb

    (i think this line should be revised, "vFile = Application.GetOpenFilename("Locator Files Only(*.xlsb)," & "*.xl", 1, "Select Locator File", "open", False)"

    Hereis the code: (also please check if the sequence is correct)

    SubLOCATOR()
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Dim vFiles As Variant
    Dim wbCopyTo As Workbook
    Dim wsCopyTo As Worksheet
    Dim wbCopyFrom As Workbook
    Dim wsCopyFrom As Worksheet

    Set wbCopyTo = ActiveWorkbook
    Set wsCopyTo = ActiveSheet
    lastrow =Range("A7").End(xlDown).Row

    vFile = Application.GetOpenFilename("LocatorFiles Only(*.xlsb)," & "*.xl", 1, "Select LocatorFile", "open", False)

    If TypeName(vFile) = "Boolean"Then
    Exit Sub

    Else
    Set wbCopyFrom = Workbooks.Open(vFile)
    Set wsCopyFrom = wbCopyFrom.Worksheets("DATAENTRY")
    End If
    '--------------------------------------------------------------
    'Clear contents of Target worksheet
    wsCopyTo.Range("D7:Q" &lastrow).ClearContents
    'Copy Range
    wsCopyFrom.Range("B7:O" &lastrow).Copy
    wsCopyTo.Range("D7").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, _
    Operation:=xlNone,SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    'Close file that was opened
    wbCopyFrom.Close savechanges:=False
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True

    End Sub


    Thank you in advance.

    Hi XLadept,

    Is it possible that the imported data be sorted before pasting? If so, can you revised the code to include sorting the data. Sorting sequence key is column "F" and sorted from column "D" to column "R". Thank you.

    Re: Copy Paste revision

    We're copying from B-O and pasting from D-Q yet you want to sort from D-R on the from sheet????

    I need clarification here - it seems that the proper sort would be from D-Q on the copy to sheet???

    Sorry xladept, my mistake. You are correct, sorted is from D-Q. Also, is it possible to remove duplicate on colum "F" (if any)?. Thanks.

    Re: Copy Paste revision

    Hi xlAdept,

    Based on this original VBA code below, sometimes i get an error message 400. It open the file and freeze but does not copy and an error 400 is displayed. Sometimes its working fine, but lately, it occurs more often. I am using Excel 2010. Kindly check if something has to be added on the code? Thanks.

    Here is the original VBA code:
    Sub LOCATOR()
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False

    Dim wbCopyTo As Workbook
    Dim wsCopyTo As Worksheet
    Dim wbCopyFrom As Workbook
    Dim wsCopyFrom As Worksheet

    Set wbCopyTo = ActiveWorkbook
    Set wsCopyTo = ActiveSheet
    lastrow = Range("A7").End(xlDown).row

    Set wbCopyFrom = Workbooks.Open("Z:\SHARED\DATA\LOCATION.xlsb")
    Set wsCopyFrom = wbCopyFrom.Worksheets("DATAENTRY")

    '--------------------------------------------------------------
    'Clear contents of Target worksheet
    wsCopyTo.Range("D7:Q" & lastrow).ClearContents
    'Copy Range
    wsCopyFrom.Range("B7:O" & lastrow).Copy
    wsCopyTo.Range("D7").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, _
    Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    'Close file that was opened
    wbCopyFrom.Close savechanges:=False
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True

    End Sub

    Re: Copy Paste revision

    Your post does not comply with Rule 3 of our Forum RULES. Use code tags around code.

    Posting code between [CODE]Please [url=https://www.excelforum.com/login.php]Login or Register [/url] to view this content.[/CODE] tags makes your code much easier to read and copy for testing, it also maintains VBA formatting.

    Highlight your code and click the # icon at the top of your post window. More information about these and other tags can be found here
