Well having not answered my questions, I made up a sample workbook with Dates in Col A and here is the code for that

Sub GetData()
Dim WS As Worksheet
Dim WSResult As Worksheet
Dim sDate As String, eDate As String
Dim MaxRow As Long

If MsgBox("This process will lookup all sheets in this workbook for a date range in Col A and will return in this sheet all the rows where the data falls in between the selected dates." & Chr(10) & Chr(10) _
    & "Are you ready to proceed ?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Get Data") = vbYes Then
    
    Set WSResult = Sheets("Results")
    WSResult.Cells.Delete
    
    '---> Start Date
    Do
        sDate = InputBox("Input starting Date: ", "Start Date", Format(Now, "mm/dd/yyyy"))
    Loop Until IsDate(sDate)
    
    '---> End Date
    Do
        eDate = InputBox("Input ending Date: ", "End Date", Format(Now, "mm/dd/yyyy"))
    Loop Until IsDate(eDate)
    
    For Each WS In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
        If WS.Name <> "Results" Then
        
            '---> Filter the data as per dates
            WS.UsedRange.AutoFilter field:=1, Criteria1:=">=" & sDate, Operator:=xlAnd, Criteria2:="<=" & eDate
            If WS.Rows.End(xlDown).Row < 1048576 Then
                '---> first time put the header
                If MaxRow = 0 Then
                    WS.Range("1:1").Copy WSResult.Range("A1")
                    MaxRow = 2
                End If
                
                WS.Range("A2", "A" & WS.Rows.End(xlDown).Row).EntireRow.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Copy
                WSResult.Range("A" & MaxRow).PasteSpecial
                MaxRow = WSResult.UsedRange.Rows.Count + 1
            End If
            WS.ShowAllData
            
        End If
    Next WS
    
    '---> Advise user
    WSResult.UsedRange.EntireColumn.AutoFit
    If MaxRow - 2 = 0 Then
        MsgBox ("No rows were found in the date range " & sDate & " - " & eDate)
    Else
        MsgBox ("A total of " & MaxRow - 2 & " rows were found in the date range " & sDate & " - " & eDate & " and copied successfully.")
    End If
End If

End Sub

Open in new window


the attached sample workbook is for you to see how it works.
Activate macros and press on the button in sheet Results. Put dates interval when required as start and end date. It verify that dates are indeed dates and not strings or non dates. then it goes thru all the sheets and give the results in sheet Results.
