Importing Data In Correct Format For Macro To Run

Aug 17, 2008

We have a system that normally dumps our data in the format of column K, with all of the data in one column and the same spacing you see below in red. The problem is when the system is slow, we have to manually dump it, and when we manually dump it, it comes out spread out from column A to column I. For the macro to work without bugging out on me, it has to be in the same format as column K, with exactly the same spacing.

I have tried text to columns while importing, amongst other things, but have not had any luck. So in a nutshell I need to be able to make column A thru I, look just like column K with exactly the same spacing. The data dumps are different every day.

I have a strange feeling I will not get a reply on this question, because it is so strange, or that I failed to articulate it correctly....

Check Cells Are Correct Format And Contain Correct Data

Jan 26, 2014

We receive about 20 sales files of several hundred lines of data each day from various agencies. I want to create a macro / VBA code which checks that the data submitted is correct so that we can upload it into our database without import errors and / or having to manually check each line of data.

I envisage something like an output report:

149 entries
Column A - Date - OK
Column B - Customer_Phone - Errors (Should be 11 digits)
Row 21 - Customer_Phone - Error (Not 11 digits)
Row 108 - Customer_Phone - Error (Contains letters)
Column C - Outcome - OK
Please correct and re-check.

Macro To Convert Dates To Correct Format

Jun 7, 2013

When I import data , the dates appear as follows in Col G sheets "Imported Data"

If I select Col G and use Text to columns and select mdy, it gives me the dates in the correct format. However, If I use the macro recorder to do this and then run the macro, it does not work

I have attached the dates after using text to Columns wjhich is the correct format.

VBA Importing Data From Access To Excel - Date Format Incorrect

Sep 8, 2008

I am using VBA to export an access query into excel, the query works fine in access but when importing the data into an excel spreadsheet, it doesn't display the date column headers in the correct format.

The problem I have is that the dates 1 to 12 are displayed the wrong way round eg:

In Access date column headers from query are:
09/01/2008, 11/01/2008, 12/01/2008, 14/01/2008, 15/01/2008 etc.

But when exporting to excel, the above dates are shown as:
01/09/2008, 01/11/2008, 01/12/2008, 14/01/2008, 15/01/2008 etc

It seems to be changing round the dd/mm when I export, but only upto 12 when the day is 13 or more it is displayed correctly.

Public Sub bttnDMA_Click()
'DMA Figures in Excel format
'Creating the Recordset
Dim cnn As ADODB.Connection
Set cnn = CurrentProject.Connection
Dim MyRecordset As New ADODB.Recordset
MyRecordset.ActiveConnection = cnn

Format Currency As Correct German Format

Jan 23, 2009

I have a spreadsheet which needs to display currency in the correct format dependant upon whether a contract is in English or German Law. Excel defaults currency format as 310,000.00 however in German this needs to be 310.000,00 i.e. with the decimal point and comma in opposite positions. Does anyone know what expression I can use to format it as the latter?

Macro For Importing HTM Report Data

Aug 8, 2012

trying to do anything other than the basics with Excel. I would like creating a macro to import data tables contained in a report that I receive in HTML format.

The Report looks like the following. I de-identified the data

REPORT DATED: JUN 12, 2012 17:53
INFORMATION AS OF: JUN 11, 2012 23:09


[Code] ........

The column group represents a security profile for an application. I am auditing the access to that application. They either start with the '#' symbol or the '@' symbol.

I receive this report once a quarter. This being my first time. I had to manually cut and paste the data tables from the HTML report file into a spreadsheet.

This is what I would like to be able to do in excel using VBA. The report name is the same every time. 'FS.ASET.Users.htm'
1. Would like to create excel spreadsheet with a macro button and master worksheet that already has the headers.

Group Userid User Name Owner Create Date Special Operations
Auditor Revoked ADSP GRPACC UACC Authority

2. That looks in a network directory(will be the same everytime) for this htm file(will be same name every time)

3. Pull only rows that start with # or @. Place them into single worksheet with sorted by 'Group' ascending.

4. A stretch goal would be to have the macro create a different worksheet within the spreadsheet for each profile name, I.e.,@UFSGUAR, #ZCBSAU, and copy only those rows that start with that profile name into each subsequent worksheet.

Macro To Find Correct Data In Cells That Have Multiple Values

Jan 27, 2014

Script Example.png (Picture)
Script Example.xlsx (Example Workbook)

I have a report that I pull that I pull fairly often that is in this format and shows which footage of products each store is getting (out of over 1800 stores)!

Above is the format that it comes back as. And here is a spreadsheet that shows what steps I take to find correct values in detail.

So each FTG has an ID# and Desc. The ID is in text format and each ID is seperated with a comma, no space. Description also. Date is seperate by a space and comma. Stores change footages a lot so I want to find out which footage is effective today (1/27/2014) For ex: Store 63 would have the 5ft effective right now because we are between 5/23/08 and 5/22/14. So each ID# and Ftg Description is in the same order as Date.

When I have hundreds of stores, it is difficult to go through and get each one (even with the way I've been doing it.) But my ultimate goal is to create a macro to put only the current footage ID#, Desc, and Date in Columns C,D,and E. I'm not sure even where to start with doing a macro.

I usually just find the store with most ftgs, count them, insert that many rows after ID and Description columns, then do a text to columns (comma, delimited), sort by 2nd date column (so they all come up top) and then manually go through them and delete unneeded columns once I have them all.

This value is in the first column of the array and there are 211 of each value chronologically sorted. So, the first column from top to bottom reads 1,1,1,1..211 times, then 2,2,22,..211 times and so on. For this case, I want to return the first row where a particular value is found.

DateTime Stamp With Correct Number Format?

Nov 25, 2013

I am trying to date and time stamp a certain cell. This cell is going to be compared to another cell in another sheet (also date and time) so that I can track deadlines being met.

I am using the following code to stamp the cell:

Range("F26").NumberFormat = "[$-409]m/d/yy h:mm AM/PM;@".Value = Now()

Even with the number format, the cell is not stamped as a number. As a result I get #value errors when I take the difference between the stamped cell and the cell with the preset deadlines.

If the results are true place a value of 1 in column K. If false place a value of 0 in column K.

QueryTable Not Returning Correct Number Format

Jul 28, 2006

I have a querytable running on my sql database. In the query I have a trimleft function because the numbers are stored with several proceeding blank spaces. When I execute the query through my macro, everything works fine, except I can't average or sum the results. They can be multiplied, divided, etc, but not averaged or summed (they just show as zero on summing, which makes the average DIV/0). The really strange part is that if I select a number and go to the formula bar and hit delete at the beginning of the number (which actually deletes nothing), the number is suddenly capable of actually performing as a number. I assume this has something to do with how the querytable is returning my results, but does anyone have an idea for a workaround for this issue?

Retain Format Importing Text File

Jun 6, 2007

I am having problems choosing a format for the column in my spreadsheet that contains my account codes. This is especially a problem when the code starts with an '=' sign and is followed by a number or has a '' sign followed by a number.

I receive the file in a .txt format which I guess if I get it that way I would not have a problem but as I need to work on the file in excel before uploading it I experience problems. For instance when I open the file the codes that begin with '=' + a letter for instance =Y just comes up as '# name?' and only when I click in the cell can I see that it is =Y. Also the code '=1' just comes up as '1' as does '1' - now this causes problems as for a start I need to do Vlookups on the account code but now instead of three distinct codes I have 3 1's.

The only way that I have discovered how to solve this is to click into each cell and add a ' before the text. (this changes the format to text - right??) But obviously this is very time consuming - is their a quicker way to change these cells. I can't just right click and format cells - text. This does not work?

Excel 2003 :: Correct Approach For Number Format?

Feb 14, 2012

I have several sources of information for client files. the number format includes a reference number and a month, eg 123/11, 456/02. In some cases, the numbers may be presented including the company initials, eg ABC/00123/11. I want to make sure all numbers on all sources are the same as I am using Vlookup and this reference no to copy information from one source to another. Sometimes when I change the format Excel sees this as a date, eg 11/11 is 11-Nov, and in some cases Excel sees a fraction, eg 123/11 is 123 11ths or 123 divided by 11.

I can easily take out the reference no with a find and replace FIND ABC/ replace with . But this often results in a number with leading zeroes, eg ABC/0123/06 will leave 0123/06.

I am using Excel 2003.

Excel 2010 :: Consolidating Info In Correct Format

Sep 11, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with five cells (L3 - L7) that have dates entered into them in the format of 9/9/2013, 9/10/2013, 10/20/2013, 10/21/2013, 10/22/2013. In another cell, cell n2, I have the formula:

=IF(L2=0,"",IF(L2=1,L3,IF(L2=2,CONCATENATE(L3,L4),IF(L2=3,CONCATENATE(L3,L4,L5),IF(L2=4,CONCATENATE(L3,L4,L5,L6),IF(L2=5,CONCATENAT E(L3,L4,L5,L6,L7)))))))

In cell n2 I get: 41526415274156741568481569 This is the excel number for the above dates, but I need it to look like:

Sep. 9 - 10, 2013, Oct. 20 - 22, 2013

I also need it to be able to isolate single dates for example if the date in cell l5 was 10/5/2013 instead of 10/20/2013 then I would want n2 to look like Sep. 9 - 10, 2013, Oct. 5, 2013, Oct. 21 - 22, 2013. but my formula currently only changes that number in the string from 41567 to 41552.

The reason I need this is because this information is part of a identifier and also maybe used in reports, the people reading the reports won't know this long number is actually dates and won't be able to read them if they did.

Also the cells L3 - L7 data depends on cell l2, 1 = one date entered into cell l3, 2 = two dates, one in cell l3, the next in cell l4, and so on for up to five total days that may or may not be consecutive. Also, it seems to work as is, but only for one day.

VBA Dates In Correct Format (dd/mm/yyyy) On Form But Incorrect When Inserted To Worksheet?

I have a form on which I select a date (using a calendar form) and on the form it works perfectly. The date is in the correct dd/mm/yyyy format for example (03/04/2013 - 3rd April 2013), I then insert this date into a worksheet and it comes out in the correct format, but it is actually turning the dates around so where it should be putting 3rd of April (03/04/2013), it's inserting 4th March (04/03/2013) instead. It looks very much like the form sees the date in dd/mm/yyyy format and the worksheet when taking the data from the form thinks it in US format (mm/dd/yyyy).

Treating String As Array And Correct Array Format For Unicode Characters?

Jul 30, 2012

in C a string is nothing more than an Array of characters ending with a null character.

in VBA this does not seem to be the case.I am trying to use the BlowFish code from David Midkiff for some encryption, however the code sometimes fails:

When encrypting a string a string of a specific length should be returned. however sometimes one of the characters of the encrypted string is a null character, and the returned encrypted string (with a embedded null character) is causing me problems. I want to check for the null character and if present redo the encryption. But how do I check for the presence of this null character in a unicode (double-byte) string?

Checking with Len(encrypted) gives the correct length (!) but trying to move each (unicode)character into an array fails when using the Mid() function past the null character in the string.

Now I can use

byteArray() = StrConv(unicodetext,vbFromUnicode)

to get the lower byte of each character into an array easily, but how do I do this for both bytes of the unicode characters?

Using an integer array does not work other than through

intArray(j) = CInt(AscW(Mid(Outp, j, 1)))

which fails on the nullstring in my encrypted text.

I have tried with variants but so far no luck. I thought if the string was entered into a variant then I could also address the variant as an array of bytes, but that does not seem to be accepted by VBA.

A Macro To Format Data

Aug 24, 2009

I have been trying to produce a macro that will format data of varying lengths. Basically, I pull data from a database and export it into excel. I have a macro that will format the first few lines fine. Unfortunately, there are a few lines of info at the end of each report that need to be deleted. I cannot figure out how to make excel reach the end of my data a delete these two lines. If I build the macro on one report that has 100 lines and delete line 99 and 100, and then attempt to run the macro on a report that has 150 lines - lines 99 and 100 are still deleted.

Is there a way to delete the last couple of lines of data of a spreadsheet?

So basically, I need to use the 'start date' and 'start time' from the first row and the 'start date' and 'start time' from the last row. Also use the first 'SOC before' and the last 'SOC' After'.

I have more data in column h - column z, so I need to delete the entire row of the additional "C" rows. Otherwise the data will be misaligned.
