Loop Through a Folder of Excel Workbooks
With the use of Excel VBA Macro code we can loop through a Folder on ones Hard-drive and work on all Excel Workbooks within it. The code below can be used on Excel 97 - Excel 2003 (For Excel 2007, see Excel 2007 Alternative To File Search). The only changes needed are to the file paths used. The part of the code that reads: .Filename = "Book*.xls" has been commented out but can be uncommented if you wish to restrict the list to that of specific Excel Workbook name. Note also the code 'as is' restricts the list to only Excel Workbooks. However, this can be any of the File types listed below;
Sub RunCodeOnAllXLSFiles() Dim lCount As Long Dim wbResults As Workbook Dim wbCodeBook As Workbook Application.ScreenUpdating = False Application.DisplayAlerts = False Application.EnableEvents = False On Error Resume Next Set wbCodeBook = ThisWorkbook With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch 'Change path to suit .LookIn = "C:\MyDocuments\TestResults" .FileType = msoFileTypeExcelWorkbooks 'Optional filter with wildcard '.Filename = "Book*.xls" If .Execute > 0 Then 'Workbooks in folder For lCount = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count 'Loop through all 'Open Workbook x and Set a Workbook variable to it Set wbResults = Workbooks.Open(Filename:=.FoundFiles(lCount), UpdateLinks:=0) 'DO YOUR CODE HERE wbResults.Close SaveChanges:=False Next lCount End If End With On Error GoTo 0 Application.ScreenUpdating = True Application.DisplayAlerts = True Application.EnableEvents = True End Sub
MsoFileType can be one of these MsoFileType constants
