Convert To Tab Delimited

Feb 22, 2007

I attached a txt file of a report we get out of our accounting system. It is not tab deliminated, when I open it in excel, each whole row is contained in 1 cell instead of being broke up into columns. Im not sure how to convert it, im sure it possible using vb or something?

Convert XLS To Pipe-delimited TXT File

Jul 15, 2009

I have the following code (borrowed) which converts the current .xls worksheet to a tab-delimited .txt file. The problem is that i need to add a PIPE to the end of each row/record as well, so that the records would look something like this:


currently there is no PIPE following the last character (3 or 6) and i am getting this:


I was hoping there would be a way to revise the VBA to add a PIPE at the end of each row/record.

Here's the code:

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
2274 2276...............................

Convert Multiple Delimited Cells To Rows?

Mar 12, 2013

I have tried to alter some existing code from this site to accommodate my needs with no luck.

I would like a macro to convert the following.

Column A1-C1 contains Headers Column A-C contains Simple data to be copied down as many rows as needed to match the number of delimited pieces in the following columns. Columns D-I contain Data delimited by 3 spaces. The number of delimited pieces of data can be different in each row. The number of Delimited pieces of data will be the same in each column of a particular row. Example: if D4 has 4 pieces of data separated by 3 space, E4 will also have 4 pieces of data separated by 3 space, F4 will also have 4 pieces of data separated by 3 space and so on to I4.

D5 may contain 5 pieces of data separated by 3 spaces through I5 all containing 5 pieces of data.

Column G may contain a single space within the data delimited by 3 spaces.

Columns D-I may only have 1 piece of data with no delimiter.

I would like the Delimited data to be split apart and a new row created for each piece of data. and copy the corresponding data in column A-C to each new row.

If this can be done in the same worksheet or copied to an existing worksheet that would be great.

Here is a link to a sample on Google Drive [URL]

I am using Excel 2010 but would like it to be compatible with 2003 as well.

As I mentioned I found some VBA to do what I need but it only does 4 columns and I cant figure out how to make it do the 9 I need.

Convert Comma Delimited Cell To An Array

Feb 15, 2010

{= SUM(IF(({325,481,342,440,425}=ID)*($A37=DateRng)*1, ROUND(Sales,2),0))}
I am currently using this formula to retrieve total sales by day for each team and it works perfectly. Data is stored in columns by Date,Salesman ID,Sales.

I would like to replace the array portion with a vlookup to return the array set so i can use drop-down to select different teams and see the sales for that team.

This is the function as I thought it would work, but the vlookup returns "325,481,342,440,425" as a string not an array.

Convert A Column Into Comma Delimited List

Oct 27, 2006

I have a list of terms in a spreadsheet. Assume they start in cell A1 and they descend down for the next 300 cells. Basically I need to pull those terms into a single text string where the terms are comma delimited.

What I have been doing is concatenating them so they all end with a comma, copy them 25 at a time, pasting values and transposing then running a concatenate formula for the 25 terms. Do this 10-15 times to create that many comma delimited lists then concatenate those lists to create one all in one list.


The list (starting in A1) looks like this:

but I need:

If possible to do this with a formula please do so as my knowledge of using VBA modules is limited but if this must be done using VBA please realize that I'm in the thrid grade compared to your knowledge so please explain how to implement the module as clearly as possible.

Convert Text Delimited File To .xls File Using Vba

Nov 28, 2008

how to word it but if someone understands then please help. I have two excel data files namely Book1.xls & Book2.xls. Both files have different data in it. Both files contain macros. When these macros run the files become **FINALIZED** version.

Originally, I get the above files in my email as txt. attachments. I then move these two txt files to my desktop in a folder called Folder-1. Then I open these files as an Excel and save them.

Basically, I need to know if two txt files are sitting in a folder-1 on my desktop. What can I do or what can I clik that....those two text files get converted into excel automatically, including running that macro I talked about in the above paragrah.

To put it differently, if I have two txt files Book1.txt, Book2.txt in a folder, how can I automatically create an excel **FINALIZED**version which sits right next to their txt version.

Delimited Data In Worksheet

Oct 29, 2009

I have a worksheet that has around 2000 rows each containing data as shown in the attached sample sheet. I want to replace all the squares (is this some form of delimiting or seperating character inserted as the data was imported?) with a space and leave the other data intact.

I've tried find & replace to do this without success, although editing each individual cell works. Please let me know as I need a way to do this for all cells at once as it would take an age to do each cell indivudually.

Exporting To Pipe Delimited

Dec 27, 2007

Figured out how to export to Pipe Delimited through coding but now I am faced with 2 complications.

1) The column order in the EXCEL file is not the Order I want it to Export in. (i.e. COB Date maybe in Column 'I' in the Excel File but when I export it into .txt I need it to be in the First Column)

2) I need to have the header name Changed in the .txt file (i.e. COB Date is the name in the EXCEL file but I need it to show as cob_date in the .txt file)

Tab Delimited Data From Web Page

Jan 1, 2008

I am trying to use VBA to manage invoice generation via an online service. The service is set up in such a way that the process cannot be made completely automatic, but I am trying to reduce it to as few manual steps as possible. Hence I am opening the Web Browser control in an Excel userform to streamline and guide the user's process. The invoice is generated as a Tab-delimited TXT file. I don't want to save the file to disk, and selecting 'Open' opens the file as a web page, rather than in Notepad or Excel.

One way or another this data needs to be transferred to a hidden Excel worksheet for further processing. So I am trying to devise a way to copy the data from the web page and paste it onto the Excel worksheet. Here is the relevant code from within the Web Browser's class module:

If URL Like "*" Then
Application.Wait Now + TimeValue("00:00:01")
SendKeys "^a^c", False
Application.Wait Now + TimeValue("00:00:01")
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet3").Paste Destination:=ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet3"). Range("A1")
End If

The "^a^c" (control-A, control-C) part works correctly; if I interrupt the code at that point I can open Notepad and directly paste the invoice data. But pasting into Excel fails in a way that has me baffled. Instead of the invoice it pastes the previous contents of the clipboard; for instance the invoice number that I copy and paste in an earlier step. I can even run the code as written above, see the invoice number pasted into Excel, and directly open Notepad, type Control-V, and have the actual invoice pasted into Notepad! It is as if Excel's paste function accesses different clipboard data from other applications. So my brief question is: How do I get the data into Excel? The longer question is: Is there some step I have missed that specifies to Excel what clipboard data to paste?

Save AS Tab Delimited File For SAP

Feb 4, 2008

I'm trying to create a excel sheet with macros that will generate a tab delimitd file which is a journal voucher and I want to upload that .txt file to our financial system (SAP). When I create a tab delimited file manually, that is I enter all the values in excel and save as .txt it works great. But I have created a spreadsheet where the useres (all employees on the financial departement) enter the info required. I have a macro validating that all fields are correct and so on.. When they are finished they sedt the spreadsheet to me (an excelfile) via email, this is done by a submit buttom(macro) and the I have a hidden sheet in the worksheet which gets all the values that are necessery and then I create my tab delimited file using the well known save as fileformat=xltext macro. But SAP will not accept this file. I get error messages as convertion erros in line 4 column 6 and so on. The sheet which is saved as .txt is 100% with formulas, it gets all the value from another sheet(sheet1). I use the formula =IF(Sheet1!$E17=0;"";Sheet1!E17) in the cells with E17 changing to whatever cell is required. What can be wrong here? May it be that all the formulas (columns A to H and row 2 to 1001) somehow mix it all up and even to the cell is empty is the formula is somehow hidden in the .txt file and that messes it all up??

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.

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

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

Is there code I can use to do this? I need each individual piece of data to import into it's own cell while keeping the Row/column alignment of the original text document.
