In my open workbook, I have data in cells D11, D12, E11, E12, F11,F14 that I want to transfer to a closed workbook (workbook name will always change but the location of the file will always be the same) in a directory. There is always a single file in that directory (I process the file and then ship the file off to somebody else for further processing and then I delete the file) and it's name always changes but the structure of the file remains the same. The data will be transferred to the exact same worksheet name and location in the closed file.

hi, I'm trying to transfer data from one excel file to another. The format of the file i want to transfer the data to is different from the file I'm getting the data from. How can I transfer these data to different cells. I could copy and paste all the way through but it would take forever. So probably a macro or a piece of code that could help??

Hi, any help would be much appreciated..

I have a macro that transfers data (transfer macro) on a daily basis to 30 separate workbooks. As a number of users tend to leave themselves logged in to their workbook, I have applied some inactivity code to the first workbook only, in 'this workbook' and 'module 1' to test that the transfer macro still works (the inactivity code autmoatically closes the workbook after 10 minutes of inactivity).

However, when trying to transfer the data, the transfer macro does not get past opening the first workbook. It opens it up but it won't copy the data across and move on to the other workbooks.

As this works perfectly without the inactivity code being applied, I can only assume that this is the problem - is there a way that I can get the transfer macro to skip the inactivity code that is applied?

Apologies if any further detail is required / should be added to this post.


I have a workbook that runs a macro to loop through a number of files, transfer data from each file to a template file, and save a new version of each file. In the macro file, I need to call a sub in a module in the template file, in order to get the data to transfer properly - how can I do this?
Thank you!!

Hi all

I am trying to write a process that will help me to transfer data from a file to a destination file by a simple process (if possible), I say simple but my excel skills are not fantastic and it may not be possible.

If anyone could suggest a way of perhaps making this process better i would really appreciate it.

My problem:
I have a file called 'initial data sheet' (attached) currently i fill in weekly the data that i require (it changes by week) once i have put this data into this file i have to then put all the rows which have a figure greater than 0 in column D (highlighted yellow) into another workbook 'Target file complete' to be uploaded somewhere else.

Another problem i have when trying to do this is that in 'Target file complete' there are hidden columns which make the transfer of data more difficult.

Is this a case of writing a couple of macros?
perhaps one for filtering the data in 'initial data sheet' and another for the transfer to 'Target file complete' .

I have just realised i cannot send attachments , If anyone feels they can and waould like to help i suppose i couls forward the 2 files direct to you.

Many thanks for your time
much appreciated

Book 1 is debit balances and book 2 is credit balances. So my concern is the difference in amount.

Example if book 1 amount 500 and book 2 is (500) means balance OK. Only I need to get the difference.

I have set up a excel spreadsheet that I wish to transfer data to a csv file that sites on an ftp site. I have set up the ftp via the office network and now sits in the window explorer folder.

I would normally copy and paste the data but doing this on a daily basis is too much.

I have used a macro to transfer 8 queries from Access to Excel. It requires the file name, or the file has to exist. But I need the macro to create a new file each time I transfer the queries (each query in a separate sheet). How can I do this. BTW, I used the 'Transferspreadsheet' function.


This is a long standing problem that is driving me insane.

I have a workbook which contains information that I would like to transfer to a new spreadsheet.

If column I (in the exsisting workbook) contains the words 'New Business' I would like the entire row (all values) to transfer to the new spreadsheet. I need the information from the entire workbook (containing 12 worksheets) to transfer over to the new spreadsheet if column I states 'New Business'.

I have tried many things, most recently VLOOKUP, but with no luck at all.

I understand that a macro is the best option, however my excel skills are nowhere near advanced enough to know where to begin

Any help would be greatly appriciated.

Workbook A contains data that feeds into Workbook B. Workbook B retrieves data from Workbook A (via a macro) and then puts data into cells in Workbook B, Workbook B process the information and does calculations etc... on the data from A. Now I want to transfer the results back to Workbook A in specific cells.

Example (just for information only and not actual problem): Workbook A, contains employee information, years in company, position etc... This is transferred to Workbook B (this portioin I have coded and tested). Workbook B calculates pay, benefits etc... Now I want to put the pay information back to Workbook A.


Hi there,

Can anyone help, i need to do the following:

1. Have VBA code that gets Excel to check in a particular folder that is full of forms in .xls format (say about 70 forms)
2. Extract data from each form in the folder (can this be done without opening the form entirely?). Transfer values by row into the already open destination workbook.

The transfer of data from each form is not so much a problem for me code wise. What I really need help with is getting Excel to search in the folder of forms, creating a cycle to go through them one by one. Can a reference to each file in the folder be done by a numeric index i.e. 1, 2, 3 etc?

Help gratefully received.

Am using Excel 2007


I usually download data from a program into excel. This raw data has specific number of columns, but the row count changes constantly. I need to transfer this data, file name "New Output2", tab name "New Output2", and range A2:Q# into "Master Template", "Data" tab, on range B5.

How can I do this. I'm sorry I'm just starting to learn VBA.

Thanks a lot for your help!

Hi...I would like to transfer data from an excel FILE into many other excel FILES. Lets say I have an excel desktop file called "A" that has a, b, c columns and I want to transfer that data into other excel files located in a "H" drive with files called B, C, D that also have a,b,c columns in each file. ALSO, I would like to do this transfer whether the other files are open or closed. HOW DO I DO THIS ?

Hi everyone

I'm sure there's a simple answer to this question, but I can't figure it out.

I have 2 workbooks and I want to transfer a row of data from one to the other. I could just copy and paste it, but a) this would take a while as I have many rows to transfer and b) there may be times when data in a cell from the original row changes, so I want the change to occur automatically on the new row.

Plus I want to extend the function to include cells that I haven't typed data into yet, so when I type it in it automatically transfers to the new spreadsheet.

I have attached the files that I am working with. I want to transfer data from row C6:P6 (highlighted in bold) of the Original workbook to row C3:P3 of the New workbook.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Guys,

I would like to ask if there's a Macro Code to transfer the data to another file without opening the other file. I've attached 2 files (Tracker Leave & Master File). The Tracker Leave it is where we input all the data then later on I'll transfer it to another file which I named as Master File (no need to open this file).



I wonder if somebody can help, please.

I have two Excel workbooks.

Workbook 1 is a list of 400 names, addresses, and loads of other data going across in rows with column headers.

Workbook 2 is a document. Within this document are several empty fields.

What I would like to be able to do is automate the process of transferring some of the data from Workbook 1 to populate the relevant fields in Workbook 2.

Then I need to print the document in Workbook 2.

Then transfer the data applicable for the next name on the list in Workbook 1 to Workbook 2 - print that - then continue for all 400 records in Workbook 1.

Is there a way I can automate this process?

I hope I've explained that OK!!!



Hi Everyone,

I have a question for you. I run HDD/SSD tests on my computer ,the test environment spits out plethora of data on an excel sheet (say workbook1). Now I want to automatically copy one of the column of my workbook1 to another column of workbook2, and the column that I want to transfer(copy) has data which is not continuous, what I mean by continuous is, it has data in every 6th row, for example I want to transfer data from column C and Column C has data in C6, C12 ,C18,C24... and so on and I want the data that is transfered to workbook2 to be continous that is I want to transfer it to a column say Column B in workbook2 such that the data is present in B1,B2,B3,B4....

It would be great if anyone can comeup with an idea.

Thank U
