Hi,

We have multiple excel files in a folder. Each excel file has "n" number of worksheets and in each worksheet column "c" data needs to be paste into column "D".  We would like to use macro in which user will select the folder and this gets processed.

Thanks,
Shail

Also is there header in C1?

Hi,

Column C data of each sheets from all the files from a folder need to be pasted in col. D of there respective sheets only.
For example...
excelfile1.xls
   Sheet1->columnC paste in Sheet1->columnD
   Sheet2->columnC paste in Sheet2->columnD
   Sheet3->columnC paste in Sheet3->columnD
excelfile2.xls*
    Sheet1->columnC paste in Sheet1->columnD
    Sheet2->columnC paste in Sheet2->columnD
    Sheet3->columnC paste in Sheet3->columnD
Thanks,

Does that mean, all the files have only three sheets in them?
Also the data from these files will be appended in col. D of sheet1,2 and 3 and also initially clearing the col. D of these sheets before the code paste the col. C in them or just paste the data below the last row of existing data?

What are the actual sheet names in those files, are they always named as Sheet1, Sheet2 and Sheet3?
Same query for the macro workbook.

Shailesh ShindeLocalization Engineering & AutomationAuthor Commented:
Hi,
Sheet names were different and not necessary that it always contains three sheets might contains more or less.

Hi,

Column "D" will be always blank. So, Column "C" data needs to be paste into Column "D".

Subodh Tiwari (Neeraj)Excel & VBA ExpertCommented:
Does that mean sheet index will play a role to decide that column C of which sheet needs to be pasted in column D of which sheet in the macro workbook?

e.g. File1

Sheets(1).Columns("C") goes into the Sheets(1).Columns("D")
.
.
.
Sheets(4).columns("C") goes into the Sheets(4).Columns("D")

Is that assumption correct?

Also what is the file extension of excel files you want to copy the data from?

Shailesh ShindeLocalization Engineering & AutomationAuthor Commented:
Hi,
Yes, this assumption is correct. Extensions will be .xlsx

Column "D" will be always blank. So, Column "C" data needs to be paste into Column "D".
Okay. But what if col. C from the more than one file needs to be pasted in col. D of one sheet? Data needs to be appended then?

Please try this to see if that works for you...

Sub CopyDataFromColumnC()
Dim swb As Workbook, wb As Workbook
Dim sws As Worksheet, ws As Worksheet
Dim lr As Long, i As Long
Dim fso As Object
Dim dFolder As Object
Dim dFile As Object
Dim SelectedFolder As String

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set swb = ThisWorkbook

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

With Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFolderPicker)
   .Title = "Select A Folder!"
   .ButtonName = "Confirm"
   If .Show = -1 Then
      SelectedFolder = .SelectedItems(1)
      Set dFolder = fso.GetFolder(SelectedFolder)
   Else
      MsgBox "You didn't select a folder.", vbExclamation, "Folder Not Selected!"
      Exit Sub
   End If
End With
For Each dFile In dFolder.Files
   If Left(fso.GetExtensionName(dFile), 4) = "xlsx" Then
      Workbooks.Open dFile
      Set wb = ActiveWorkbook
      For i = 1 To wb.Worksheets.Count
         Set ws = wb.Sheets(i)
         On Error Resume Next
         Set sws = swb.Sheets(i)
         On Error GoTo 0
         If Not sws Is Nothing Then
            lr = ws.Cells(Rows.Count, 3).End(xlUp).Row
            If lr > 1 Then
               ws.Range("C2:C" & lr).Copy sws.Range("D" & Rows.Count).End(3)(2)
            End If
         End If
         Set sws = Nothing
      Next i
      wb.Close True
   End If
   Set wb = Nothing
Next dFile
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
MsgBox "Data from Column C from all the files has been successfully copied.", vbInformation, "Done!"
End Sub

Hi,

I have created the .xlsm file and added this line of code. When process files from the folder, this code copies the column C data and paste it in column D of .xlsm file instead of open file from folder column D.

Thanks,
Shail

I think, I misunderstood the requirement.
Okay try this....
Sub CopyDataFromColumnC()
Dim swb As Workbook, wb As Workbook
Dim sws As Worksheet, ws As Worksheet
Dim lr As Long, i As Long
Dim fso As Object
Dim dFolder As Object
Dim dFile As Object

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set swb = ThisWorkbook

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

With Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFolderPicker)
   .Title = "Select A Folder!"
   .ButtonName = "Confirm"
   If .Show = -1 Then
      SelectedFolder = .SelectedItems(1)
      Set dFolder = fso.GetFolder(SelectedFolder)
   Else
      MsgBox "You didn't select a folder.", vbExclamation, "Folder Not Selected!"
      Exit Sub
   End If
End With
For Each dFile In dFolder.Files
   If Left(fso.GetExtensionName(dFile), 4) = "xlsx" Then
      Workbooks.Open dFile
      Set wb = ActiveWorkbook
      For i = 1 To wb.Worksheets.Count
         Set ws = wb.Sheets(i)
         lr = ws.Cells(Rows.Count, 3).End(xlUp).Row
         If lr > 1 Then
            ws.Range("C2:C" & lr).Copy ws.Range("D2")
         End If
      Next i
      wb.Close True
   End If
   Set wb = Nothing
Next dFile
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
MsgBox "Data from Column C from all the files has been successfully copied.", vbInformation, "Done!"
