How to Create Summary Sheet after processing Active or specific sheets?

Posted by | January 25, 2013 .

Actually this code is for my own reference as a template for future to make my life easier because many people ask me to create summary sheet after processing certain sheets. For example we need to extract or sort specific data from current sheet and place sorted data at new summary sheet.

Option Explicit
Sub CreateSummaryList()
Dim IntSht As Integer
Dim ShtSummary As Worksheet
Dim ShtActive As Worksheet
Dim LngRow As Long, LngLstRow As Long
Dim i As Integer
'To check either user work with summary sheet or not? Yes then exit
If UCase(ActiveSheet.Name) = "SUMMARY" Then
    MsgBox "Sorry! You are trying to work with summary sheet."
    Exit Sub
'To check active sheet empty or not? Empty then exit
ElseIf WorksheetFunction.CountA(Cells) = 0 Then
    MsgBox "Sorry! Active Sheet is empty."
    Exit Sub
End If
i = 1 'Starting Row for summary
Set ShtActive = ActiveSheet 'Current sheet

'To check existance of summary sheet and delete
For IntSht = Sheets.Count To 1 Step -1
    If Sheets(IntSht).Name = "Summary" Then
        Application.DisplayAlerts = False
        Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    End If

'To create new summary sheet
Set ShtSummary = Sheets.Add(After:=ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(Sheets.Count))
ShtSummary.Name = "Summary"

'To work with active sheet and  place new data into summary
LngLstRow = ShtActive.Cells.Find("*", SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious).Row
For LngRow = 1 To LngLstRow
    If ShtActive.Range("A" & LngRow) <> "" Then
        ShtSummary.Range("A" & i) = ShtActive.Range("A" & LngRow)
        'More code goes here
        i = i + 1
    End If

'To work with Summary sheet
LngLstRow = ShtSummary.Cells.Find("*", SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious).Row
For LngRow = 1 To LngLstRow
    If ShtSummary.Range("A" & LngRow) <> "" Then
        'Your code goes here
    End If
End Sub

The above code will:

  • Confirm current sheet is not summary sheet? Summary then exit
  • Confirm current sheet empty or not? Empty then exit
  • Loop all sheet – if found summary sheet then delete (Previous summary sheet)
  • Create new summary at last sheet
  • Start working with active sheet
  • Start working with Summary sheet.
