Total the value from unopened workboks in an open workbook

Posted by Nils on May 24, 2000 8:06 AM

I have a folder with estimated 100 workbooks. I need to take the value from the same cell in all the workbooks and Sum the total in the open workbook. All files are in the same directory (Q4 1999, Q1 2000, etc.) The cell is not a named range so I need to use the cell address. Is there any way to do this and allow for user input for the path to where the files are located.

Hi Nils
Is the cell in the same sheet on all workbooks ?
and is this sheet name always the same ?
If it is then perhaps I can help.

The sheet name is the same and the data is in the same location in all the files and all the files are grouped in one folder on the network.

Hi Nils

Try this;

cut & paste to a Std module of a new workbook
attache the macro to an object
The value will be placed in cell A1.

NB: change the cell ref @ CWRIR Drive, usDirFiles(WB), "Sheet1", "R1C1" '<CHANGE THE CELL ADDRESS HERE!>

Note in R1C1 reference style!

Let me know if OK, would suggest you check it
on a test Dir of Known values for the integrety
of your data.
