Hello Experts!

I would like some help with a script that will do the following:

For every sheet that has *棚卸* in the tab name, copy cells from A5:T(end - 2 rows) and append to a new sheet. Add column to the new sheet that contains the name of the source tab.

Thanks!

-Tom

Hi Tom, could you post a sample workbook? Thanks.

I'm thinking the solution will be very similar to this one. Just a case of identifying the character codes in the tab name.

In my version of Excel/language I can't use "*" in a tab name. Does yours actually include the asterisks or did you use those as wildcards?

I've assumed you ARE using it as wildcard and that you want the data from all tabs that contain that pattern written to a single "Results" sheet.

Sub FindSheetsByTabnameWriteToResults()
Dim charString As String
Dim copyRange As Range
Dim shtName As String
Dim sht As Worksheet, resultSht As Worksheet

For Each sht In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
    If sht.Name = "Results" Then
        Set resultSht = sht
        Exit For
    End If
Next

If resultSht Is Nothing Then
    Set resultSht = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets.Add
    resultSht.Name = "Results"
    resultSht.Cells(1, 1).Value = "SourceSheet"
End If

charString = "*" & ChrW(26842) & ChrW(21368) & "*"
For Each sht In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
    If sht.Name Like charString Then
        shtName = sht.Name
        Debug.Print "found sheet " & shtName & " using pattern " & charString
        Set copyRange = Intersect(sht.Range("$A:$T"), sht.UsedRange).Offset(4, 0) 'omit first 4 rows
        Set copyRange = copyRange.Resize(copyRange.Rows.Count - 6) ' adjust for the offset and omit the last two rows
        Debug.Print shtName, copyRange.Address
        With resultSht
            lastrow = .UsedRange.Rows.Count
            .Range(.Cells(lastrow + 1, 1), .Cells(lastrow + copyRange.Rows.Count, 1)).Value = shtName
            .Range(.Cells(lastrow + 1, 2), .Cells(lastrow + copyRange.Rows.Count, copyRange.Columns.Count + 1)).Value = copyRange.Value
        End With
    End If
Next
End Sub
