    Export Excel data into closed workbook

    Hello:

    Please refer to attached 2 excel files.
    Source.xls
    Dest_12-01-2013.xls

    Source file will have Daily Receipts for the whole month.
    (I am showing only sample data)

    Both these files will be in C:\Users\Riz\Desktop\Temp location.

    I need a VB Macro to export Data Range E5:G13 from Source file into "Dest_12-01-2013.xls" at B8 without
    opening "Dest_12-01-2013.xls".
    Once data pasted, would like to save "Dest_12-01-2013.xls".

    Eventually, i will be creating files for the whole month and hence i do not wish to open, will do it loop later.

    Please let me know if any questions.

    Thank you

    Riz Momin

    Hi, riz,

    AFAIR you cannot write anything into a closed workbook and a given range from Excel VBA directly - AFAIK you would need to open the workbook in question, fulfill the task, close again by using SaveAs.

    Re: Export Excel data into closed workbook

    Hi, Riz,

    some questions: would you like to have a dialog for both the files to open, will it always be the range E5:G13 to copy and always be B8 for pasting?

    Ciao,
    Holger

    Re: Export Excel data into closed workbook

    Hello:


    Source range will change but pasting will remain same all the time.

    For 1st day of month source data range would be E5:G13
    For 2nd day of month source data range would be i5:k13 AND SO ON...

    (4 COLUMN INCREASE PER DAY)

    Please let me know if any questions.

    Thank you

    Hi, Riz Momin,

    I think we´ll have to adapt parts of the macro but anyhow let´s have a start here:

    Hello HaHoBe:

    It is not pasting the data in destination file.
    Can you please check the code.

    Thank you

    Hi, Riz,

    instead fo relying on the date you could try and insert an inputbox for checking the area to copy to be more flexible:
