Controlling Output Format When Exporting To Text?

Apr 8, 2013

After organizing my data I now need to export to a simple txt file. But I need to control to final format better then the simple "save as" allows. What I need is a simple list of in a single column, separated by a carriage return. I am working with a "small" list of addresses, and by small I mean 27,188.

Every format I try ends up with quotation marks and a strange box like symbol. What I have is a full name and 2 line address per field in .xlsx format. I also have the data separated into fields by line.

Is there any way to better control the output when exporting to a .txt file?

Exporting A File With A Cell Value Name In Text Format

Jun 28, 2007

I've been doing this excel worksheet for work; even though I've never used excel macros or VBA before.(So if this is an easy question to answer don't laugh at me. :P) (I have worked with other programming languages though.) Anyway, using a VBA manual, I've done pretty well, until now. I'm trying to make a macro that when one clicks on the button it saves the file as a text tab delimited file, but giving it the name of whatever the user put into a specific cell. (And also without closing the excel file too, so they can add more if they have to) So I've gotten it now so that it saves with the correct name, but I am unsure about how to make it save as the text file I want. (At the moment it saves as an unreadable file) Any help would be great thanks.

Here is the ...

Exporting Multiple Sheets From Excel Into CSV Format

Jun 21, 2012

Currently, I have 65536 rows of data per sheet in an excel file. I have a total of 8 sheets. I need to combine all these sheets into one csv file. As my company uses excel 2003, I can't consolidate all sheets into 1 sheet before saving as CSV format as it will exceed the number of rows available in excel 2003.

However, the number of rows and number of sheets in the excel file will change monthly, and I need to consolidate the excel file accordingly.

I am wondering if I could save a new workbook as csv format first before copy and paste all data into that csv file.

Also, all the 8 tabs have the same header. I only need to copy the header on the first tab, and for the sequence tab, I will only need to copy row 2 onwards.

I have recorded a macro based on a sample data.

Sub Macro1()
' Macro1 Macro
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
"C:Documents and Settingse31425My DocumentsBook1.csv", _
FileFormat:=xlCSV, CreateBackup:=False

[Code] .......

Controlling Multiple Text Boxes On A Form

Feb 18, 2009

I have a userform with 40 text boxes in it. I have learnt how to restrict people entering anything other than numbers into a text box using the following code on the keypress property of the textbox:

Const Number$ = "0123456789." ' only allow these characters

If KeyAscii 8 Then
If InStr(Number$, Chr(KeyAscii)) = 0 Then
KeyAscii = 0
Exit Sub
End If
End If

Rather than have 40 of these blocks of code (one for each text box), is it possible to somehow group them so that a block of code is applicable to all of them?

For the sake of arguement, the textboxes are called data1 up to data40

Exporting To Text

Apr 17, 2007

I have multiple rows within a worksheet and need them to automatically save into a separate txt file. Example:

I have a workbook with rows b-z. Instead of taking each of the rows and copying and pasting it into another separate excel file, then saving in a txt format, is there a way to automate this? So that the following will occur:

Column B 950 line is one file
Column C 950 lines is another
column D lines in another txt file.....etc

I have some code listed below, however, it reads the first column cell by cell. It does not group column by column grouping all data within that column as on txt file

Sub notebook_save()
Set wkbk = Workbooks.Add
RowCount = Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, "a").End(xlUp).Row
For i = 1 To RowCount.......................

Exporting With Text Identifiers

Mar 5, 2008

Is there a way to export Excel (Excel 2003) into a flat file that is comma separated and also includes text identifiers, specifically double quotes (" ") around each field in a row?

The Export Wizard in Access makes that a snap but we (more than just me) haven't been able to make it work out of Excel.

Exporting One Column To Text File

Aug 15, 2008

I've created a spreadsheet to create a text file which I can use to inport values into another device. Using CONCATENATE etc I end up with a range of cells (1 column / Many rows) that I can then MANUALLY highlight, choose copy, open the text file, paste in the contents and then save it. This works fine but as you can imagine I'd like to automate the proceedure by having excel create and save the text file for me.

From what I've seen on these forums most people are wanting CSV type files but not me. I've already got the cell contents pieced together it just needs writing to a text file, no delimiters, no quote marks, just exactly what's in the one cell on one line, it's just one column remember (H2:H1456).

I'm not bothered about appending data either, a hard coded overwrite of the text file is fine by me.

The actual file type I ultimately need is an .abk file, but like I say this is just a basic text file that's been renamed. Could Excel create this or must it have the .txt file extension?

ComboBox Output Set In Date Format

Aug 10, 2006

I'm creating a workbook with the ultimate aim of graphing some data between any two dates. For this I plan to use the ComboBoxes on the Control Toolbox. Each ComboBox takes its range of data from a list of dates, with the cells set as Date format (custom as dd-mmm-yy), however when I select a date in the dropdown of the ComboBox, it is shown in number format, i.e. 38723 etc.

When I ask the ComboBox to put the output in another cell, it is input in text format as that number. Changing the output cell type does work, but once you select a new date in the dropdown, it reverts to text once again. how to set the ComboBox to display dd-mmm-yy format and it's output to be the same?

Exporting Data Into Multiple Text Files

Jul 29, 2006

I have 10 rows and 3 columns or words(data). What I am trying to do is export this data one row at a time so that I end up with 10 text files. Each row needs to be inserted into 3 variables within my text file. (Variable1,Variable2,Variable3) and then saved. Each saved text file needs to be named Variable1-Variable2-Variable3.txt. End result should have 10 text files that are named corrosponding to each row of data and each text file should also have the 3 variables replaced with the corrosponding row data.

Right now I have to manually rename the text file (Variable1-Variable2-Variable3.txt) and then manually open the text file and select EDIT-REPLACE and insert the data 3 times. I have to do this for many many text files and it is becoming monotinous.

Exporting Excel Data To Word As Unformatted Text

Jun 3, 2006

I'll try to simplify what I'm trying to do without getting into too much details that might be considered irrelevant to my question.

1. A set of VBA procedures are run successfully, and the results are compiled on a single w/s "mySheet" in a single w/b "myBook".

2. I intend to repeat 1. above 1,000s of times (same w/b, same w/s).

3. Consider a single run. The results of interest on "mySheet" are confined to a range, say, A20:K40, named "myInpRange", with a 7-digit run identifier ID automatically generated and stored in cell F5, say, F5 = 1234567

4. I've successfuly performed the following tasks manually:
...a) copy range A20:K40 of "mySheet"
...b) Open a new MS Word document
...c) Paste Special as Unformatted Text
...d) Save the Word file for this run As: LL_1234567.inp (="LL_" & F5 & ".inp")
...e) Close the Word file.
...f) Repeat a) to e) above for the next run.

Q: How to code a VBA Excel macro to handle Excel & Word, run from a button on the w/s "mySheet", and to perform the tasks a) to e) above ??

In case you might wonder why I do have to go through this trouble. Well, my next set of programs are DOS-Applications, which only allow their redirected input data files to be as described above.

Translation Of HTML Cell Data When Exporting As TEXT

May 2, 2006

I have a cell in which I have the following data (for example):

<a href="">Ford Trucks</a>

I need to export the sheet as a tab delimited txt file for import into another program. When excel saves the file as .txt, it add extra data so that the cell is represented as:

"<a href="""">Ford Trucks</a>"

Note the set of two additional inverted commas. This extra data interferes with the parsing of the data in the other program. I've tried formatting the cells to "general" and "text", however, it does not seem to affect the txt output.

Output Redirection From BAT Or VBS To Text File

Jun 26, 2014

I am working on a VBA routine that calc and verifies hash files for a series of folders and sub directories, using a command line prog called exactfile.exe ( It is very similar to M$'s FCIV utility, but it is actually supported on Win7/Win8. The issue I am having is that I cannot get the standard output/error/console stream to redirect to a text file. I've written the routine multiple ways, trying to figure out redirection. I was using this site

HTML Code: [URL]....

as a reference.

Here is my VBS approach. This code is dependent on another sub passing folder_name as a string

[Code] .....

The VBS then executes using wscript, however, since exf.exe does not return an exit code the same way FCIV.exe does, I need the results redirected to a text file. The results vary from a single line saying "No errors." or multiple lines indicating which files do not match their original hash.

Here are a couple iterations of my BAT approach, where i use the BAT to call the VBS. I really thought I would be able to use the standard redirect > here, since the executable is launched using cmd.exe, but I've not gotten the results I want.

[Code] .....

I've scoured more pages than I can count, but no approach seems to work, so far.

Command Button Output Text

May 30, 2009

Need coding of command button to output text based on the contents of combobox1 and combobox2. The text should be placed in the next available cell starting in cell b3 for combobox1 and starting in cell c3 for combobox2. Each time submit is clicked the name and number associated with that name should go in the next free cell in the spreadsheet.

So for example the user choses name1 and number6 cell b3 would read name1 and cell c3 would read number6 after submit is clicked. The user then choses name58 and number12 and presses submit again cell b4 would read name58 and cell c4 would read number12.

VLookup To Output Text Data Results?

Dec 24, 2013

I have a column with lots of tube station names. I have a look up table with the tube station name, and the possible lines that pass by that tube station.

One tube station may be covered by more than one tube line.

I am looking for a formula that will output every tube line that caters that one tube station.

first question, what is the best way to organise the data in my look up table.
Second, is a vlookup the best formula to achieve the output I want? i.e. Reflect how many tube lines cover each station

see table below: If the station name has only one tube line, Vlookup works fine. When the station, such as Canno Street, has two tube lines, Vlookup only picks up one tube line. If I duplicate Cannot street under the station name, the Vlookup picks only one tube line.

LOOK UP TABLE A1 - station name
B1 Tube line name
Cannon Street


Is there a formula that will output the data of the second tube line name in column D1?
