where I am needing to import a file sent daily by a third party, that has now grown to be greater than 65536 lines. It contains cumulative data from the past year or two, but although we only need the LAST few thousand lines, the third party are unable to provide us with a smaller file.
The file is currently imported from file into Excel using VBA, and then various manupilations are done using VBA to extract the data we need. However because of the size the file now has grown to, the user has to open the text file in wordpad(or notepad) first and delete the first 'few' thousand lines before saving to file.
Is there a way of importing only a certain number of lines from this text file, for example the last 30,000, using VBA. If so, all our problems will be solved (this time)
Is there a way to open a text file from Excel 2010 and specify that I want it in .xls format?
I am working in compatibility mode, and expected that when I opened a text file from code within an xls file, the text file would have 65,536 rows, but it has 1,048,576. This causes a problem when we try to copy the sheet with the data from the text file, and insert the sheet into our xls workbook. See code below. The error is: Run-time error '1004': Excel cannot insert the sheets into the destination workbook, because it contains fewer rows and columns than the source workbook..
I know I can get the data other ways (such as copying and pasting only the cells containing data) but I was hoping to make minimal changes to the code below as I will have to make it across several templates. Specifically, I was hoping that there was a qualifier I could add to the Workbooks.OpenText statement after "Tab:=True" - Perhaps something about opening the text file in File Format 56. However I have not been able to find out how to do that.
Apart from the obvious restriction imposed by the virtual size of a spreadsheet,are there any other factors that would induce a problem with size. I have a set of data with 3000 rows and 15 columns. I would like to organise this using 5 of the data columns as rows in the pivot, 1 as column and 1 as data.
I have a number of sets of data which work perfectly, but one set, the largest, fails when I attempt to add the data field.
I have a workbook with many spreadsheet named Sheet1, Sheet2 and so on. Each sheet is filled completely upto 65536 rows. This data is being picked up from a CSV file. In this file there are sites with each site there is a assciated set of data. What happens is the data that extracts data does not differntiate between sites and when it reaches to the end of worksheet it splits the data into next sheet. So I am trying to create a macro to check each spreadsheet starting with the last sheet in the work book for example last sheet in the workbook is seven it should go to sheet6 and if there is a blank row after row 64000 it should cut all the rows and move them to sheet7. Then it should goto sheet5 and do the same and keep on doing it until it reaches sheet1.
I have a CSV-file of 30 Megabyte. But if I open it in excel he says that he could not open the complete file?? The maximum rows of excel are 65536. Can I enlarge the number of rows that excel can handle or is there anybody with the same problem and wrote an program for it in excel, VB or maybe word??
I have been sent a file that has been zipped. I am trying to open it so that I can see all the data. So I have extracted it and opened it in EXCEL my problem is that I get an error message 'File not loaded Completely' and I am only able to view 65 536 (the max records) in my EXCEL doc but I need to see the rest of the file. Does anyone know how I can do this?
I'm using the following code to read a text file that I downloaded from a mainframe file.
Do While Not EOF(FileNum) Line Input #FileNum, myLine Debug.Print myLine Loop
It reads and prints the first line, but then drops out of the loop. According to the help file, "Line Input" is looking for a carriage return (Chr(13)) or carriage return–linefeed (Chr(13) + Chr(10)) sequence. I have pasted a sample of the text file below. I'm not sure what the characters are at the beginning of each line, but perhaps I could find a way to replace each of them with a carriage return.
I have the data to import / read in a pdf, in a doc, or in an Excel worksheet whichever is easier to use. I need to import the data, parse it into the correct cells for that row and then repeat the import until the end of the file. Not all the cells are in each group of data to import, so those cells will be null for that row. Some of the data for one cell may be in up to 14 lines in the data file. I have be concatenating these data rows into one cell. There are 48,000 lines in the file to import or I would do this manually. I am assuming that doing this in VBA would be the most efficient method.
A coworker of mine will keep a shared file open for hours at a time, not doing anything to it, just keeping open, meaning no one else can edit it as required. Is there a way to set a time limit for that file to remain open before it saves and closes the file? The file shouldn't need to be open more than 30 minutes at a time for any individual. If it's required to stay open longer for certain instances, is there a way to extend the time as well? I can't find anything even remotely relating to time limits on Excel files. Is there coding or an app I need to apply to accomplish this? Is there an option I haven't seen in the program already?
I have a spreadsheet where on a weekly basis data is copied in to various tabs. I then have a "formula" tab where I have a single line of formulas which look up the various data tabs and extract the results I want to show.
Currently each week, before I import the new data into the various tabs, I copy the last row in the "formula" tab and paste to the line below it. This contains all the working formulas. I then paste values only on the line that I copied, thus "locking in" the values it calculated with that weeks data. This means that each row then contains the results with that week's data, and this will grow week by week.
What I am looking for is a formula that automates this process. So let's say that row 30 is the final row of data on my formula tab, it contains the formulas I want to use. I would need a macros that does the following:
1. Looks up last row (row 30) 2. Copies last row (row 30) 3. Pastes to next empty row (row 31) 4. Pastes values only to second last row (row 30)
I'm not too great with writing macros, I've found plenty that can find the last row, but I can't get them to work to highlight that row.
I have an Excel file that is 590 MB and Excel is telling me that since there are over 1,048,576 rows in this file (which I understand is the row limit for Excel 2010), it will only open partially, up to that row amount.
Excel suggested I open up the file in Word, but that has been unsuccessful - Word gives me error messages and won't open the file. I've also tried converting the file to .rtf and .odt, but again, that doesn't work.
Is there any way to break this excel file down? I'm assuming that whoever created it could not have made the document more than 1,048,576 rows, if that is Excel's limit, but maybe I am wrong. The document is in date order from 2008 to 2011, but only 2008 will show, and I know the later years exist. It doesn't matter to me which program this file opens with, I just need the data.
I have an existing spreadsheet with a column of strings (actually VIN numbers). These numbers correllate to a bunch of text files, that can exist in one of three folders (UsernameDesktop1, 2, or 3) on my desktop. What I need the macro to do is:
1) get the filename from A2 (A1 is a heading row) 2) Find the appropriate text file in one of the three folders 3) Put the folder name into I2 4) Scan the text file for some strings, and copy some data that follows those strings into J2:O2 (I can handle programming this) 5) Close the text file 6) repeat above for the remainder of filenames (about 1800 files)
I think it's an easy one but for the life of me I can't get around it. ccasionally while re-typing data in fields with the intention of saving-as a new file, an error message appears saying "no more than 20 characters" This happens even when the number of characters is LESS than 20! I have tried clearing cell contents, copying & pasting, re-setting conditions/parameters for columns/rows etc., and nothing seems to work with any consistency. Instead of looking for a work-around solution I'd like to find the actual corrective action.
I wish to limit the number of text characters in a cell and have excel prevent the entry of additional characters after limit is reached. I have tried the Data Validation but it does not preven the entry of additional characters. I want to be able to show the error immediately when the limit is reached and no additional characters are permitted.
I have excel 2002 XP Professional, and the problem I am having is that Excel keeps saying I am using 65536 cells but I am only using 1406, I have tried pressing clear contents on them and delete, but this only makes it lag for 15 minutes and still says the same.
i'm working with downloading data from our server. it downloads in excel 3.0 format, and the contents exceed the 65k cap by far.
now what i used to do for this when i had 2003 installed on my machine, i would open the 3.0 format file and convert it to 2003 format so i could import it into access, where i could move it into two 2003 xls files to manage by use of copy/paste from access's table to excel's spreadsheet. The 3.0 > 2003 conversion was necessary because if i try to import a 3.0 excel file into access 2003, it gives me a error that the file contains no data.
so here is my problem now. our office just updated to 2007. it appears that when you run the conversion option to 2007 format, OR just save as... and save it to a new xlsx, it stripps off the remaining data that overstacks the 3.0 format file. everything above row 65536 is lost (and this paticular file has 77k+ rows).
so i decided... "ok then i'll do it my old way". i saved it into 2003 format instead, just as i used to, and imported it into access, and guess what? it stripps it in that format too now! (the majesty of upgrades... buggs to year 2010).
so my question is... how do i get this 3.0 overstacked file format converted to xlsx format retaining ALL 77k rows in a single sheet, or how do i strip it into 2 separate xls 2003 format files? either way will work, i just need all my data so i can work with it.
Can I limit the text length in a cell that contains a formula? You may say "Limit the text length in the input cell". That can't be done because the formula in the resultant cell takes text from two other cells in addition to the input cell. I need to limit the overall text length to, let say, 50 characters.
I have a text box that is set to "=B1". B1 is a cell from an Access table import with memo format. The text memo is long, probably on average between 1000-2000 characters. I have set up the text box to automatically resize for the text, but the text stops at what I assume is 255 characters, even though cell B1 displays the entire memo.
How can I set it up so that this text box (or any other similar shape) displays the text and retains its resize/wrap property?
