Extracting Lines Of Text

Dec 17, 2008

I have a series of cells, each having multiple lines of text within separated by hard return breaks. For example, cell A1 has the following text:

John Smith
123 Main St.
New York, NY

I want to extract line 1 into cell B1, line 2 into cell C1, and line 3 into cell D1.

Is this possible without VBA or Macros? I'm using Excel 2008 for Mac OSX so that's not an option.

Colouring Lines Of Text In Comments With VBA

Aug 2, 2008

I currently have some code which reads a stock file, adding up the stock for each individual item (which may be in one or more locations in the warehouse) and then placing the total stock count in a cell with the detail (of how much stock is in each location, the location and the expiry date) and a separate line for each location, in a comment.

The comment is constructed one line at a time as the code finds the stock records, see code below:

With shtWorking.Range(strStartColumn & intRow + 2)
oldComment = .Comment.Text
.AddComment oldComment & vbNewLine & strComment
.Comment.Shape.TextFrame.AutoSize = True
End With
All this works very nicely, but I want to colour individual lines depending on the expiry date. This can be done manually in Excel, but I cannot find a way of colouring individual lines of text in a comment using VBA.

So, does anyone know of a way I can colour individual lines of text in a comment, using VBA?

Join Text To Multiple Lines

For the following formula:


The result is:


Is there any kind of modifier that I can use to force the output to multiple lines, i.e.:


If this wasn’t a formula I could just use ALT+ENTER. Wrapping the text will not work because I need fixed break points not dependent on the text box width.

Import Text File Greater Than 65536 Lines

Jan 8, 2009

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)

Importing Selective Lines From Multiple Text Files

Jun 18, 2009

I have many text files basically with the same data from different dates. I am trying to select specific lines from each text, one that includes ".txt" which is the date, ex: "2008_308" and one that includes the word "PIXEL" and the following 5 lines after that.

I found a very similar post to mine and someone provided the script using VB for the question. It works, but it was only for one text file. I would like to use it for multiple text files. The files are all dated, i.e. "2008_308.txt". Although some of the dates are missing.

This is the script, from another posting, for importing selective lines from one text file:

Sub test()
Dim fn As String, txt As String, delim As String, a() As String
Dim i As Long, ii As Long, iii As Long, n As Long, x, y
fn = "c: est.txt" ' ©Change here (File Path)
delim = vbTab ' ©Change here (delimiter)
temp = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject").OpenTextFile(fn).ReadAll
x = Split(temp, vbCrLf)
ReDim a(1 To UBound(x) + 1, 1 To 100)
For i = 0 To UBound(x)
If InStr(1, x(i), "txt", 1) > 0 Then
n = n + 1 : y = Split(x(i), delim)
For ii = 0 To UBound(y)
a(n, ii + 1) = y(ii)..........................
