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.

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)

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:

A|123|
B|456|

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

A|123
B|456

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:

Converting Data In Two Columns Into A Row On Separate Sheet

Oct 20, 2011

I have data in two columns on the same sheet that I need to transpose into rows on a separate sheet (same workbook). One problem is that I need to reference off one of these columns (column B - in Sheet "Gp Trg Plan") as the number of lines will vary.

Example - Sheet "Gp Trg Plan"
Column B Column D
Tower Module 1
Tower Module 2
Tower Module 3
Building Module 1
Building Module 8
Street Module 6

Ideally the row will look like.

Example - Sheet "Status WS"

Column A Column B Column C Column D Column E Column F Column G
Gp Name Sub Gp Person 1st Mod Date 2nd Mod Date

There is an undefined amount of training modules (columns D in Sheet "Gp Trg Plan"), but no more than 10.

Converting Text To Columns For A String

Jul 31, 2012

I have a problem in converting text to columns for a string that has 1000+ entry's. Excel bumps me out after 851 using the Split function.

The data I can only download in a text format has >1000 fields that are seperated by ",". Not a problem so far but when I attempt to convert to columns there is a maximum limitation of 851.

Data1,Data2,Data3,Data4...................Data1000,Data1001,Data1002 etc...

I have tried:

Sub Split_Delimeter()
Dim Words() As String
Words = Split(Cells(2, 4), ",")
MsgBox "String contains " & (UBound(Words) + 1) & " words"
End Sub

Macro VBA For Copy Paste Columns Of Data From Three Tabs Into One Column On Separate Sheet

Nov 18, 2013

I have a workbook with four tabs or four sheets.

Tabs 1, 2 and 3 have a column of data (Column A) on each sheet. They all start from the same cell. Each cell of data are just numbers. The column (an array) of data will not have blanks between.

But, they are not the same number of data. They vary.

Meaning, Tab 1 may have 15 numbers (A1 to A15), Tab 2 may have 20 numbers (A1 to A20) and Tab 3 could have 5 numbers (A1 to A5). Each iteration of the workbook may have different number of data in the A column on these tabs.

Now on Tab 4, I want combine the data from all three tabs into one column (in column A).

So, Tab 4 has a column A with data from Tab 1 copy and pasted to (A1 to A15) as values, then (A16 to A35) have Tab 2 data copy pasted as values and (A36 to A40) have Tab 3 data copy pasted as values.

Basically, the macro on Tab 4 has to count the number of rows on each Tab that are populated with data values and figure out to copy all the data on Column A from each three tabs and paste the data value into the Tab 4 in one column of data (in values).

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...............................

Separate Comma-delimited Values To Rows

Oct 22, 2009

I have an excel sheet I create with lots of inventory items distributed amongst several locations. The first column is a location field where several 1-2 digit location codes are seperated by commas. I would love to get the macro to copy each row, once for each location code, onto a new tab as a new longer list. Because the amount of data per row varies, I need the entire row to be copied to the new tab....

Macro To Separate String If Space Between

Jan 29, 2009

On sheet one, in the column column C I have cells which have characters separated by a space character (For example cell C3 looks like this: "L C"; cell C12 looks like this: "S BF54FR"). There are only a few cells which have more than three characters. The characters are separated by a space character. I would like the macro to do the following: take out each on of the character in put in the same row next column. (For example if in column C has the value: "L C" then in the same row column D should have the value "L" and column E should have the value "C". Or if column C was "S BF54FR" then column D should have the value "S" and column E "BF54FR".

Macro To Separate String Into Three Cells

Nov 17, 2011

Is there any way to create a macro for the following:

I have the following format

First Name MI Last Name in Column A.

Sometimes there is a space on the last name for someone with a last name Mc Cormick (for example)

Also, sometimes the list of names is short and sometimes the list of names is long. Is there a way to get a "universal" macro in place, that will not depend on the number of names in the list but will be able to detect when the list ends?

So far I was able to run the macro to get them from text-to-column into cells A, B, and C. However, the middle column sometimes contains the last name if there isn't a middle initial. I need a way to test the middle column for more than one character. If there is more than one character, it is a last name and needs to be in the third column.

Search Comma Delimited String

Dec 1, 2009

I have a spreadsheet with a number of columns containing comma delimited strings (years) which I need to check cell by cell and return false if anything apart from the years 2001 to 2008 is found.

For instance, a cell may contain the years (2001, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008) or (2006, 2007) or (2001, 2004, 2008) or (2004) or any combination of those 8 years.

I thought of using the Split function on each cell and then looping through the resultant array to do a comparison against each of the 8 years but with a large number of delimited strings to check it could be a bit time consuming. Any idea how I could accomplish this more quickly and efficiently either with a formula or VBA?

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

Creating Panel Data By Converting Several Columns Into One

Jun 20, 2011

My problem: I have downloaded national economic data from IMF with several countries for several years. I need several variables and must extract them individually so I a need a clever solution to my problem.

I currently have data that is sorted like below. The "-" indicates a numerical gdp value for the given country for the given year.;

(FYI I could not get the "-" to align beneath 2001-2004 and year respectively.)

Country 2001 2002 2003 2004
x - - - -
y - - - -
z - - - -

The identifier here is country, and the data is as such structured as cross sectional data, with each yearly account of gdp being a variable. Now, I need this data as panel data, organized as below:

Country year gdp
x 2001 -
x 2002 -
x 2003 -
x 2004 -

I sort of say, need to "flip it". As I have 180 countries and 11 years, and need to do this with 2-3 variables, I need either a formula or a VBA to run.
