VBA - working with files videos | How do I copy data from multiple worksheets in other workbooks?
Posted by Andrew Gould on 07 April 2021
This video explains how to loop through the Excel files in a folder, opening each one in turn then looping through the collection of worksheets in the workbook and copying the data from each worksheet into a master list in another workbook.
This video has the following accompanying files:
|Copy Multiple Sheets from Multiple Workbooks.xlsm||Excel workbook with macros|
|Movies 2011.xlsx||Excel workbook|
|Movies 2012.xlsx||Excel workbook|
|Movies 2013.xlsx||Excel workbook|
|Movies 2014.xlsx||Excel workbook|
|Movies 2015.xlsx||Excel workbook|
|Movies 2016.xlsx||Excel workbook|

There are no exercises for this video.
Making a video bigger
You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:
Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.
When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.
Improving the quality of a video
To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:
Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.
Choose to change the video quality:
Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.
The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):
Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)? You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
I noticed a slight problem.
If the folder "My Files" contains a file with the same name as the workbook running the code, it fails on this line:
For Each ws In MovieFile.Worksheets
How can this be amended (other than NOT renaming a file with the same name)?
Maybe you could do it like this instead https://www.wiseowl.co.uk/vba-macros/videos/vba-ado-net-recordsets/loop-worksheets-closed-workbook/
I hope it helps!
