Can't Apply Text To Columns Delimited By Space?

Mar 1, 2013

Why can't I apply text functions on strings into the file? For example: can't apply "Text To Columns" delimited by space on "Status Entry Date" column.

Convert Space-delimited Data To Columns

Jun 9, 2009

I have a software package that requires serial number effectively data to be entered in a particular format.

As this can cover hundreds of lines I would like to make it less tedious to enter, and as my MACRO knowledge is very basic.

The data starts off in format below in example 1. After the data is CUT from the .html or .pdf document and PASTE into EXCEL. I would like the MACRO to start by pressing an activate button within EXCEL,

The serial numbers always have four digits with single serial numbers being separated by spaces and ranges being separated by a hyphen with the odd carriage return depending on how many numbers there are.

I would like the data to end up in two separate columns as shown in example 2.


Example 1 (Starting format)
* indicates space
- indicates a range, this needs to be separated into two separate columns

2252*2254*2256*2257*2259*2272*2274-2276*2278*2280*2282*2284*2286-2641*2643-2681*2683-2712*2714-2717*2719*2721*2724*2726*2727*2729* 2733*2735 *2738*2739*2746

Example 2 (Finished format ready to be paste into software package
2252
2254
2256
2257
2259
2272
2274 2276...............................

Open Txt Files Delimited, Space

Sep 6, 2008

On a daily basis I open about 35 text files in Excel at one time, and then must responde to 35 dialog boxes:

"This file is not in a recognizable format" - I click OK
"Delimited or Fixed Width (default)" - I change to Delimited
"Delimiters listed with Tab as default" - I change to Space

I go through that 35 times. I don't save these files that I have opened, but once they are all open I paste each one in a separate worksheet in one workbook.

Can I at least change the defaults on these text boxes to Delimited, Space? That way I would just need to click on OK, then Finish for each file.

I am using Excel 2000.

Covert Space Delimited String To Array

Apr 24, 2008

I have two columns of data, one for Position, and one for description.

The positions are concatenated and separated by spaces. E.g. C1 C2 C3 for each Description. I need to create a separate row for each position

So I need to convert:

Pos Decscription
C1 C2 C3 Cap 100n 10% X7R 0805

to:

Pos Decscription
C1 Cap 100n 10% X7R 0805
C2 Cap 100n 10% X7R 0805
C3 Cap 100n 10% X7R 0805

Or in other words split a space delimited string into an array, so that I can loop through the array, and add new rows

Remove The Extra White Space Between Each Comma Delimited Digit

Oct 25, 2009

This is a delima I cannot figure out. I had to create passwords for a website we are building. I have 3000 employee numbers has to be used. So what i did was took the first initial and middle initial and last initial and first 5 of the ID number. I did a comma delimiter to obtain all of the letters and numbers. example: ABC12345

My problem is none of the passwords work because when I imported the letters and numbers into the sheet it looks just like the above. However on review I cut and pasted back to notepad and the data looks like this:

"A B C 12345"

So its adding a tab in the password thats thats a problem, How do I remove this extra white space between each comma delimited digit? without having to manually delete it ?

Splitting Comma Delimited Numbers Into New Columns

Apr 20, 2009

I am using excel at the moment with a card playing program. using the excel sheet they provided the details of what cards are dealt are exported to the worksheet and there is a simple table like so

Player Cards
............................................................
Player 1/ 24, 27, 16
Player2/ 1, 5

The information is fed through one number at a time as the cards are dealt for a total of three rounds sometimes it is only two rounds and are delimited by a comma all in the same column. I would like if possible to have these numbers appear in separate columns. that is

Card 1 / Cards 2 / Card 3
Player 1
Player 2

IS this possible. briefly i want this to happen so I can use the Vlookup function as the numbers that come through each stand for a card value but using Vlookup only the first number works and the following return an NA value as it is impossible as far as I know to have every possible combination represented in a table . If there is a way of tweaking Vlookup so it recognises the comma delimiter and in the vlookup column it will show all converted numbers then i'm all ears otherwise any help on how to split would be much appreciated. Quickly I did try using the text to columns function when i did this however in the new destination it showed only the first number and discontinued showing the others in the original as well. Additionally in this function the 'preview of selected data' does not show selected data but some sort of link =programme_name_card_gamecard_1 somethig like that. Sorry for the long one.

VBA To Read In Delimited Text File

May 21, 2014

I've a word form that collects free text and tick boxes. I'm reading these into separate rows on an excel sheets. So far what works...

I've got excel vba converting the word to a delimited text file
I've got excel vba to remove the erroneous rtns that people have entered into the free text that was things up.

In the free text there are commas entered as well as the tick boxes and this is a csv. Example
"how do I do this, I don't know",1,1,0,1,"really seems to be a challenge!"

If I just use excel to open the text file then the columns work out ok and on a single row - I think the 'text qualifier' is playing a role here.

But I can't replicate this in VBA. If I record a macro it's a query table and I don't know how to amend the code to read into rows.

Text File But Comma Delimited

Sep 28, 2007

In my workbook I have 10 columns with data, starting at A12 and down. This could be several hundred rows.
I would like to export the first three columns only (Column A, B and C). The TXT file should have the following:
First line: "This file was exported from Excel"
Second line: The value of cell B4 of the worksheet
Third line: The value of cell B5 of the worksheet
Fourth line: Today's date ( as 27/Sep/2007)
Fifth line: No entries (Empty row)
Sixth line will be the first numeric transfer. This is cell A12 value, cell B12 value and cell C12 value.
Seventh line: Cell A13 value, cell B13 value and cell c13 value.
etc, until the end or selected amount of rows.
The values of the different columns should be separated by commas
Column A values could be 9 characters (5 numerics with 4 decimals - 12345.6789)
Column B values could be 10 characters (6 numerics with 4 decimals - 123456.7890)
Column C values could be 10 characters (6 numerics with 4 decimals - 123456.7890)

The text file therefor would look as follows:

This file was exported from Excel.
Company ABC
On this continent
27/Sep/2007

123.4567, 23.7654, 123.4567
1234.5678, 123.4567, 987.6543
12345.6789, 6.0000, 2.9876

I tried to adapt jindon's code but no luck.
I am currently doing it the long way.
='[Workbook1.xls]MySheet'!$A12&", "&'[Workbook1.xls]MySheet'!$B12&", "&'[Workbook1.xls]MySheet'!$C12
This works but I really liked what jindon did and wondered if it could be adapted to fit my needs.

Save As Text With Unicode And Tab Delimited

Oct 11, 2008

In my excel file I have chinese and some other special characters and many cells have text with commas.

My problem starts when I try to save my file as a Text.

When I Save As with the Unicode option I can see the chinese characters in my text file but also I see a lot of quotes """ because I have commas in my xls file.

When I Save As with Tab Delimited option to solve the comma problem, the chinese characters become?

It seems that cannot be possible to do it manually cause there is no option to Save As with Unicode and Tab option together.

So I would deeply appreciate someone could give me a solution with VBA code to save my file as Text with Unicode and Tab Delimited option.

Transposing Delimited Text Files

Dec 18, 2008

I am working with Excel 2003 which has a limit of 256 columns. I often import text files into excel using a very simple macro. I specify the text file's name and location in a cell and then run the macro - it opens the text file, copies the data and pastes it into the worksheet, then delimiting the columns using the semi-colons that seperated the data in the original text file.

However, I now have a text file that would convert into excel as around 1,000 columns and about 20 rows. This obviously causes a problem since my limit is 256 columns in Excel 2003.

Is there any way that Excel can transpose my data when it brings it into the spreadsheet from the text file so that I end up with 20 columns and 1,000 rows? Ideally I'd do this in VBA and add the code onto my existing little macro

Saving Sheet As Tab Delimited Text

Jun 18, 2008

I have a workbook with sheets of data that should be imported into another system. So i would like some code that does the following:

1.) make a copy of worksheet x and paste (paste special) the values in a new worksheet.
2.) Delete row 1 in new worksheet (the labels)
3.) Ask the user for a file name and path and save the worksheet as a tab delimited txt file.
4.) Delete the worksheet created in 1.)
5.) Leave the user with the original .xls file
I will assign this macro to a button so the experience for the user is:
1.) press button
2.) input file name and location and have a text file saved
3.) be left in the original xls document.
I tried with the following code but get stuck with this error : "Run-time error 91: Objeck variable or with block variable not set."

Sub Export_x_DK()
Dim w As Workbook
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
ThisWorkbook.Sheets.Add After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
ActiveSheet.Name = "Export_2023"
Sheets("Depreciation x (DK)").Select

Converting Pipe Delimited Data String Into Separate Columns Using VBA Macro

Mar 6, 2014

I have a string of data coming from a SQL Server data connection into my workbook. The value in the column is a text string that is pipe delimited. I need a macro to parse the data from that column into applicable separate columns. I would typically use text to columns for this and parse it out manually... but the tool I'm creating is one of the automated variety, so that will not suffice for this application. I need it to do this automatically when the data connection refreshes.

Excel 2007 :: Saving As Text Tab Delimited

Apr 18, 2013

Excel 2007 on windows 7 professional.

We've got an end user who opens a .dat file which is delimited with semi-colons, replaces some text in a couple of columns then saves as a text tab delimited file. She swears that before today, the saved file would retain the semi-colons. Now she says it's not. she generated a new .dat file for me and recreated the process, with the resultant semicolon-free file. I asked her to generate another one and send it to me. I opened it first in notepad, and saw the semi-colons.

Opened it in excel (I'm using 2010 on win 7 professional), which saw it as a delimited file and asked me to specify the delimiter. It shows up fine, all the columns are righteous. I made no edits and saved as a text tab delimited, and that saved file had no semi-colons in it when I opened it. This seems normal to me; there's no semi-colons in the excel file, so why would there be in the text tab delimited file. I asked her coworker to generate another .dat from his pc and let me know what he sees, but he hasn't reported back yet.

Editing Contents Of A Text File Which Is Delimited

I have a text file, which has a column of wrong data. I can change it manually by loading it into Excel but it is semi-colon delimited and I can't export to such a file.

I therefore, would like to write a VBA tool, which reads the file and edits the the value between the 5th and 6th semi-colon and will continue do this for each row (the new value is constant across the rows).

Saving A Worksheet As A Asterisk Delimited Text File?

Sep 19, 2013

I am trying to save a worksheet as a txt file. The worksheet has a range of data with a variable amount of rows in column A only. It generally will look like:

A*B*C
A*B*C*D*E*F*G*H*I*J
A*B*C*D*E*F*G*H*I*J
A*B*C*D*E*F*G*H*I*J

where each row of data is in a single cell.Whenever I save it, however, it adds extra tab deliminations in each row after the data, and it adds rows with no data (sometimes just 1, sometimes many).

I am positive that no cells in columns B-n have data in them (even just a space) and no rows after the last intended have data.

Why are these extra rows and columns being inserted? How can I save a txt file that literally has no other spaces or rows or deliminations other than what's intended?
