    Question Unanswered: Merge Unshared Workbook


    I'm trying to merge data into one master sheet from various files. The files are all from the master sheet but have different values in some columns that are blank in the master. Ideally, i want to have excel run a macro that replaces blank values in my master file with the values from the other workbooks. I have tried writing the macro as follows but it is not adding all data values.

    Option Explicit
    Public Sub MergeWorkbooks()
      Dim strWorkbook1 As String
      Dim wb1 As Workbook
      Dim ws1 As Worksheet
      Dim oCell1 As Range
      Dim strWorkbook2 As String
      Dim wb2 As Workbook
      Dim ws2 As Worksheet
      Dim oCell2 As Range
      Dim iChanged As Long
      Dim strMessage As String
      strWorkbook1 = Application.GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="Excel workbooks (*.xl*), *.xl*")
      If strWorkbook1 = "False" Then Exit Sub
      strWorkbook2 = Application.GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="Excel workbooks (*.xl*), *.xl*")
      If strWorkbook2 = "False" Then Exit Sub
      Application.ScreenUpdating = False
      Set wb1 = Workbooks.Open(strWorkbook1)
      Set ws1 = wb1.Sheets(1)
      Set wb2 = Workbooks.Open(strWorkbook2)
      Set ws2 = wb2.Sheets(1)
      iChanged = 0
      For Each oCell1 In ws1.UsedRange
        Set oCell2 = ws2.Range(oCell1.Address)
        If IsEmpty(oCell2) Then
          If Not IsEmpty(oCell1) Then
            oCell1.Copy Destination:=oCell2
            iChanged = iChanged + 1
          End If
        End If
      Next oCell1
      Application.ScreenUpdating = True
      strMessage = vbCrLf _
           & "Values from " & wb1.Name & " have been overlaid onto " & wb2.Name & "." _
           & Space(10) & vbCrLf & vbCrLf _
           & "Number of cells updated: " & iChanged _
           & Space(10) & vbCrLf & vbCrLf _
           & "Please save " & wb2.Name & " if you want to preserve these changes." _
           & Space(10)
      wb1.Close savechanges:=False
      MsgBox strMessage, vbOKOnly + vbExclamation
    End Sub
    Any help would really be appreciated as I will have to manually merge the 10000 lines of data if I can't get this to work.

    The code logic looks fine. What happens when you run it?
    10% of magic is knowing something that no-one else does. The rest is misdirection.
