    Hi I have spent many hours trying to research and create a code to enable me to create a master workbook with very little success so I now ask you all for your help please!!!


    I have attached the "master workbook"!!!


    I have a file C:\work\jobs


    In this folder I have many workbooks all named differently normally with the customers name and a description of work completed ie: Mrs Jones, Bathroom refit, etc and the file is updated with new workbooks all the time as we complete new jobs


    I need to create a macro that automatically starts when the master file is opened that grabs all the information needed from all the individual workbooks and then inputs the totals into the cells in the master workbook so I can then analyse the information


    The master workbook I have attached is exactly the same layout as the individual workbooks


    Thanks for your time I really appreciate it

    Questions:

    The master workbook I have attached is exactly the same layout as the individual workbooks
    1) Really?

    2) What sheet will be active when this "Master Workbook" opens?

    3) What does the info on Sheets("001-New Acct Approval") in the workbooks that will be opened look like?

    4) How many workbooks could you possibly be getting data from?

    5) Have you read this http://www.excelguru.ca/content.php?184 ?
