So don’t worry, if a printable and free worksheet is what you are looking for just keep scrolling as there are a bunch below that won’t cost you a dime.In an effort to help out some of the new budgeting converts, I decided to put together this article as a means of consolidating a bunch of budgeting resources.Loans that are not eligible for consolidation include state or private loans that are not federally guaranteed.
As you weigh the pros and cons, keep in mind that timing is critical.
With just a few exceptions, you get only one chance to consolidate with the government loan programs.
If you have been around here for any length of time you know that I was converted to budgeting and have been thrilled at how liberating it has been.
Yes, I said liberating – I believe that budgeting should be fun and if done properly, it really makes your life a whole lot more peaceful.
First, lets take a look at the consolidate data VBA code. Since we are using the same instance of Excel we may allow the user to preserve the format of the data being pasted. Allow the user with the option to clear data before new is pasted. Please Note: You would need to create the data files on your system, this download only contains the code template to consolidate.
There is one master file (or sheet) which needs to be consolidated by pulling data from multiple source files containing raw data (having the same data structure). If you are new to VBA, Excel macros, go thru these links to learn more.
Open str File Name, Update Links:=False, Read Only:=True Set data WB = Active Workbook Range(str Copy Range). We open the data workbook by using the Application. Next we select the data that has been assigned to the copy range and copy to the clipboard.
Inside our loop are the 4 variables which are assigned the 1) File name, 2) Copy Range, 3) Where To Copy and 4) Which Column contains the starting cell to paste data. Once we have our first data workbook open, we assign this to the data WB variable so that we can easily switch between the two workbooks and close them when the operation has been completed.
