Thread: Copy data from first workbook to a different workbook based on cell value in first

    Copy data from first workbook to a different workbook based on cell value in first

    I have a problem that I hope someone can help me with.

    I have 2 workbooks that I am working with.
    I wish to copy data from workbook 1 to workbook 2 based on the following criteria:

    A value in cell "B1" of workbook 1 needs to equal a value of a cell in column "A" of workbook 2... So it needs to find the corresponding cell with equal value of cell "B1" in column "A". Note the value in cell "B1" is the "key" for the records.

    Once the "key" has been found in row? in Workbook 2, i wish to paste the value in cell "D1" of workbook 1 into the cell in column "E" in this same row as the "key".

    Is it possible to do this and if so how can I do this?

    Can someone please help me?

    Sub FindAndCopy()
    Dim wb1 As Workbook, wb2 As Workbook
    Dim foundCell As Range
    Dim srcString As String
    Dim foundRow As Long

    Set wb1 = Workbooks("WorkBook1.xlsx")
    Set wb2 = Workbooks("WorkBook2.xlsx")

    srcString = wb1.Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("B1").Value


    Set foundCell = Columns("A").Find(What:=srcString, After:=[A1], _
    LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, LookIn:=xlValues, _
    SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False)

    If Not foundCell Is Nothing Then
    foundRow = foundCell.Row
    Range("E" & foundRow).Value = wb1.Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("D1").Value
    MsgBox "Search Item Not Found"
    End If
    End Sub[/vba]

    2) Uploading File(s)
    Go Advanced / Attachments - Manage Attachments / Add Files / Select Files / Select the file(s) (multiple files can be selected while holding Ctrl key) / Upload Files / Done
    Replace company specific / sensitive / confidential data. Include so many rows and sheets etc in the uploaded workbook to enable the helpers visualize the data and table structure. Helpers do not need the entire workbook.

    3) Testing the Codes
    always back up your files before testing the codes.
