Data Normalization

In the attached sheet "PROBLEM" it has two tabs. "Data" & "Working"

The Data tab gets deleted and replaced almost daily. The working tab is the format to use to handle calculations. When the Data worksheet is imported I would need VBA code to loop through the data one row at a time and split the cell value from being X/X to two cells in the "Working" worksheet.
The primary key field is a unique value.

Cell Y4 on the data worksheet would need to be split into cells AH6 and AJ6 on the working worksheet. And so on through the cells, then the next row.

I have tried formulas but loose everything every time I delete and re-import a new Data worksheet.

Some help here would be appreciated.

Question:

1) Will the daily data plugged in sheet Data will always start at: Row 4 and the columns from Y to extreme right ?
2) Are columns variable or fixed like always Y to AG or can change ?
3) Will the result in working always plugged in Row 6 and down and Col AH to extreme right ? and also variable columns or fix ?

Also an other question

1) What about column C on sheet working how is it filled ? should the macro fill it as well ? if yes then presume it is from Col C in Data ?
2) What about the rest of columns in Working I see these are formulas ...

Again it seems you are busy but I got my way around.

Pls check the attached file as I assumed that the data in Data will always start at row 4 and data in Working will always start at row 6 and columns are fixed.

If it is anything different then will adapt to your request.

Here is the code

Sub GetData()
Dim WSD As Worksheet
Dim WSW As Worksheet
Dim MaxRowD As Long, MaxColD As Long, MaxRowW As Long, MaxColW As Long, I As Long, J As Long, K As Long
Dim MinRowD As Long, MinColD As Long, MinRowW As Long, MinColW As Long
Dim dTemp

'---> Set Variables
Set WSW = Sheets("Working")
MinRowW = 6
MaxRowW = WSW.Range("C" & WSW.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
MaxColW = WSW.Cells(MinRowW - 1, WSW.Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
MinColW = WSW.Cells(MinRowW - 1, MaxColW).End(xlToLeft).Column


Set WSD = Sheets("Data")
MinRowD = 4
MaxRowD = WSD.Range("C" & WSD.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
MaxColD = WSD.Cells(MinRowD - 1, WSD.Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
MinColD = WSD.Cells(MinRowD - 1, MaxColD).End(xlToLeft).Column


'---> Clear old data
WSW.Range("C" & MinRowW & ":C" & MaxRowW).ClearContents
WSW.Range("AH" & MinRowW & ":BH" & MaxRowW).ClearContents

For I = MinRowD To MaxRowD
    K = 0
    WSW.Cells(I + (MinRowW - MinRowD), "C") = WSD.Cells(I, "C")
    For J = MinColD To MaxColD
        dTemp = Split(WSD.Cells(I, J), "/")
        WSW.Cells(I + (MinRowW - MinRowD), J + K + (MinColW - MinColD)) = dTemp(0)
        WSW.Cells(I + (MinRowW - MinRowD), J + K + (MinColW - MinColD) + 2) = dTemp(1)
        K = K + 2
    Next J
Next I

MsgBox "Data Transfered successfully.", vbInformation

End Sub

Open in new window


Check the attached file as I deleted the data in working (kept the formulas) and run the button Get Data and see if all is ok.

Columns and rows are static.....

Attached is a little more detailed example.

The "Tracking" worksheet is the one that is deleted and replaced all the time..... "MC Tracker Data" is static in the control workbook.

Hard to do searches.
Notifications button keeps disappearing. It is there when my mouse is over the place it should be, but it rarely shows.
And you I have had issues over closing questions without awarding points correctly.
