Audit logs enable you to track all the file transfers and logins within your account. Learn how to enable logs. Enabling logs can only be accomplished by admins or users. Not managed users or contacts. Learn more about the differences between users. Combining multiple logs allows you to filter, navigate and organize your logs in one simple excel sheet. To learn how to combine logs, follow the instructions below:
Dim bookList As Workbook
Dim mergeObj As Object, dirObj As Object, filesObj As Object, everyObj As Object
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set mergeObj = CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”)
‘change folder path of excel files here
Set dirObj = mergeObj.Getfolder(“c:\users\excelfolder”)
Set filesObj = dirObj.Files
For Each everyObj In filesObj
Set bookList = Workbooks.Open(everyObj)
‘change “A2” with cell reference of start point for every files here
‘for example “B3:IV” to merge all files start from columns B and rows 3
‘If you’re files using more than IV column, change it to the latest column
‘Also change “A” column on “A65536” to the same column as start point
Range(“A2:IV” & Range(“A65536”).End(xlUp).Row).Copy
‘Do not change the following column. It’s not the same column as above
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Please note the importance of the folder path: “ c:/users/excelfolder” if the folder does not exist within the correct path the script will not work. If you would like a different folder path, you must change the folder path in the script above.
Finally, click the run button to populate the new excel document with the files inside the folder we created.
Now, with one giant excel worksheet, we can filter and search for specific users and view all the transfers and logins conducted by this user.
