Copying Excel columns and appending all to 1 sheet RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Folks -

    I posted earlier today but my requirements changed slightly so this is my final requirements and I hope you can assist.  I have a Master "Utility" excel file that I need to update with "Sheet1","Sheet2", and "Sheet3" content from another excel file. 

    I need to take Columns E, AA & V starting in Row1 from all (3) sheets and paste into Sheet "HC_Input" Row 2 in my Master "Utility" excel file.  However, the caveat is, col E from source goes in col A in target, col AA from source goes into col B in target and col V in source goes in col E in target goes in B, and V goes in E. 

    Or my other option is to just paste in Col A-C, and then insert two columns after B?

    I'm having trouble appending each sheet to "HC_Input", I need help cherry picking columns as well and appending them after the last row.

    Thanks so much for you help!

  • Try a macro like this, stored in your Master Utility file:

    Sub TestMacro()
        Dim wkBK As Workbook
        Dim shtT As Worksheet
        Dim shtS As Worksheet
        Dim strName As String
        Dim lngR1 As Long
        Dim lngR2 As Long
        Set shtT = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("HC_Input")
        'Clear out HC_Input
        shtT.Range("A2:E" & shtT.Rows.Count).ClearContents
        strName = Application.GetOpenFilename("Excel Files (*.xlsx; *.xlsm),*.xlsx; *.xlsm", , "Pick the source file")
        Set wkBK = Workbooks.Open(strName)
        For Each shtS In wkBK.Worksheets(Array("Sheet1", "Sheet2", "Sheet3"))
            lngR1 = shtT.Cells(shtT.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row + 1
            lngR2 = shtS.Cells(shtS.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
            shtS.Range("E1:E" & lngR2).Copy shtT.Range("A" & lngR1)
            shtS.Range("AA1:AA" & lngR2).Copy shtT.Range("B" & lngR1)
            shtS.Range("V1:V" & lngR2).Copy shtT.Range("E" & lngR1)
        Next shtS
        wkBK.Close False
    End Sub
