Excel/appending data to another worbook using VBA
I have excel 2007
In the past I have just been appending the data I want to store to a worksheet on my workbook as push button.
Now what I want to do is to dump the data I want to store onto a sheet in another workbook.
Sheets ("masterlog data").Select
To address the new Workbook and Sheet I tried
Sheets("C:\Documents and Settings\Eric\Desktop\STORED\DATA\[masterlog.xls]masterlog data").Select
Needless to say VB doesn't like that.
So what do I do to open to address the workbook I want then open the worksheet I want to apply the data to the location I want?
The coding I have works well at looking up what row is empty then appending the new data.
Since you are using the fullpath to your workbook, I assume it is not open when you run that code. So you need to open it, make it active, then select the sheet you want in the workbook
Dim sPath as String, bk as Workbook
sPath = "C:\Documents and Settings\Eric\Desktop\STORED\DATA\"
set bk = workbooks.Open(sPath & masterlog.xls)
Now masterlog data in workbook masterlog.xls should be the active sheet.
If the workbook is already open then
Hope that answers the question.
