Loop Through a Folder of Excel Workbooks

With the use of Excel 2007 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 any version of Excel. The only changes needed are to the file paths used.  In this example code, I copy all Worksheets called "Template" into a new Workbook, then name the sheet using A1 of the same sheet.

Sub CopySameSheetFrmWbs()
Dim wbOpen As Workbook
Dim wbNew As Workbook
'Change Path
Const strPath As String = "C:\Excel\"
Dim strExtension As String

'Comment out the 3 lines below to debug
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
On Error Resume Next

    ChDir strPath
'Change extension
strExtension = Dir("*.xls")
    
    Set wbNew = Workbooks.Add
'Change Path, Name and File Format
wbNew.SaveAs Filename:="C:\Excel\TemplateCollation", FileFormat:=xlWorkbookNormal
    
        Do While strExtension <> ""
            Set wbOpen = Workbooks.Open(strPath & strExtension)
         
            With wbOpen
                .Sheets("Template").Copy After:=wbNew.Sheets(wbNew.Sheets.Count)
                wbNew.Sheets(wbNew.Sheets.Count).Name = wbNew.Sheets(wbNew.Sheets.Count).Cells(1, 1)
                .Close SaveChanges:=False
            End With
            
            strExtension = Dir
        Loop
        
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
On Error GoTo 0
End Sub
