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.
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 Cells.Select.........................
My set up win xp pro office 2007. Object is to save the text from a given cell to drive C naming the file with the value in another cell. E.g.
Contents of cell ("AA5") is a string and the content of ("D5") is a number
I have tried altering the code posted which i found on the forum, it works fine for the purpose as it was indented e.g. save the workbook and in my case saves it as the value in cell D5.
I guess I need to use some form of object to pass to the save as method but my knowledge of this is somewhat limited in addition as the is a possibility of either the cell being empty and the file name existing on the C drive, I need to disable the windows warnings and just go ahead and save it over writing what is on the C drive is of no importance as it will be the same data anyway, I can wrap the save in a "if Len ( AA5)= 0" to stop it trying to save if the cell if empty it the save the text string i am having problems with:
Option Explicit Sub SaveAsExample() Dim FName As String Dim FPath As String FPath = "C:" FName = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Text ThisWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=FPath & "" & FName End Sub
I have someone in the company that I work for that is using Excel 2007 in compatibility mode, that is trying to make changes to an Excel 2003 file.
The file in question is a large one. She can type in the rows and columns and anything that she types will save. However if she trys to make any changes to the file in terms on calculations or highlighting specific columns, then these changes are not saved.
I have found out though that if she saves this 2003 file in the 2007 format, then all over her changes will save. She can't save it in the 2007 format due to some people still on 2003 that edit this file as well.
I have a work sheet with some names address, and phone number in it... I need to save it as a CVS file (comma delimited) easy right??? WRONG!!! everytime I save it, it takes the phone number column and shortens it AND turn the phone numbers into a mess
What it looks like NOW 9057926500
What is looks like after save
If is make the column bigger it goes back to the "good" numbers, but when I save to a CVS it goes to the "bad" number.
I find, when performing a 'save as', xl puts in a default filename with a suffix (1), or (2), or (3) and so on, to the existing filename, after I have opened a file from MS Outlook. I had assumed it was because there was already an existing file in the default directory, and so it was creating another version, but no other files with the same name exist in the default directory being saved to, or on the remainder of my computer, so I don't understand why this occurs.
I have a macro enabled spreadsheet and I need to save one sheet into a new file that is in xls format. I can do that --- is there anyway to suppress the Compatibility Checker box to make it that much easier?
The new file will not have macros as will just be a data in rows and columns so compatibility. Interesting is the compatibility checker box says there are links to the original spreadsheet, but I can't find them in the connections menu.
I have a worksheet that has a number in cell K5 - the number is generated on "file open" code and is custom formatted as "TN"0000. Thus 1 appears as TN0001, 2 as TN0002 and so on. I am trying to save a copy of the workbook based on the this cells contents i.e. TN0001.xls, TN0002.xls etc. but the files are saved as 1.xls or 2.xls. The code I am using is
I am trying to find specific text throughout an excel document (2007) and replace it with the same text but in italics. I tried using the options/format function and selecting italics for the "replace" text but it replaces the entire cell text in italics instead.
I have multiple items (Country Names) in cells exported from another database with what appear to be delimiters (semicolons) that cannot be counted. I want to count the number of items (Countries) separated by the delimiters. Is there a simple way to do this?
Column 1 fields: TAIWAN, PROVINCE OF CHINA; BELGIUM;HUNGARY;SWEDEN;ITALY;POLAND;SLOVAKIA; CANADA; BELGIUM;HUNGARY;SWEDEN;ITALY;POLAND;SLOVAKIA;CANADA; INDIA;BRAZIL;DENMARK;GREECE;POLAND;MOLDOVA, REPUBLIC OF;HUNGARY;UNITED STATES;UNITED KINGDOM;
Result needed in Column 2: 2 6 1 7 9
What is the formula needed to get the Column 2 result?
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
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.
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
I export data into Excel format from a corporate reporting tool. 1 column includes a product description in text format, however, due to the many different products I need to count the number of cells based on a single word in the product description.
The report contains various information about vehicles. The product description exports to a single column and may include "Ford Fusion", "Ford Focus", "Chevrolet Malibu", "Chevrolet Impala", etc. I only need to count how many cells contain information about Fords and Chevrolets. The model detail is not needed.
I'm able to count if I enter the complete and exact make & model description, but want to avoid this due to the large quantity of products.
I'm using Excel 2007, on Windows 7, 64 Bit Enterprise
I am struggling with doing a sort, of a group of alpha characters within a cell (Excel 2007). My data was exported from Oracle 8 as a varchar2 and consists of letters.
Example of what I have BAC GHL DFE MEG
Example of what I want ABC GHL DEF EGM
All I could find were these complex looking solutions involving cursors, plsql, etc. I'm hoping there's a simple solution, maybe within Excel. I've tried different formatting, made sure no other characters were sharing the cells, and tried typing fresh data into a cell (instead of the exported data).
