Excel VBA Using a function in a cell to pull in data from different sheets

Hi

I have several workbooks with data in a similar format.
I know that you can call a VBA function in a cell.
Does anyone have an example where this technique is used to pull
data from several sheets into one?

To be able to use VBA in spreadsheet cells, you have to create the function in VBA so that it will work like other formulas.

Open up VBA Editor but pressing Alt-F11. Open Project Explorer by pressing Ctrl-R.

In the Project Explorer, look for the current file you are working on. Right click and choose Insert -> Module.

In the module, type in some like the bellow.

Function GetQuarterEnd(Rngdate As Range) As Date
Dim myDateVariable As Date
Dim Year1, Month1, Day1, ResultMth, ResultDate As Integer

Year1 = Year(Rngdate.Value)
Month1 = Month(Rngdate.Value)
Day1 = Day(Rngdate.Value)

Select Case Month1
    Case 1 To 3
        ResultMth = 3
    Case 4 To 6
        ResultMth = 6
    Case 7 To 9
        ResultMth = 9
    Case 10 To 12
        ResultMth = 12
End Select

Select Case ResultMth
    Case 3, 12
        ResultDate = 31
    Case 6, 9
        ResultDate = 30
End Select
myDateVariable = DateSerial(Year1, ResultMth, ResultDate)
GetQuarterEnd = myDateVariable
End Function

Open in new window


After that, you can start using formula like =GetQuarterEnd(A1) in spreadsheet cells.

In you question, you said you want to put data from multiple sheet into one. That doesn't sound like it has anything to do with calling VBA function from spreadsheet cells.

You need to be more specific about what you are trying to achieve.

Sample data is always good but must be non-confidential as it is viewable to public.

Thanks

I'm not great at pounding out code, but I can copy existing code and tweak it to suit my situation.
Here is an example of copying from another worksheet. It's not what you asked for, but simplifies the process:

Once you wrap your head around that, check out how to copy from another workbook:
