Excel 2007 :: Saving As Text Tab Delimited

Apr 18, 2013

Excel 2007 on windows 7 professional.

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.

Saving Sheet As Tab Delimited Text

Jun 18, 2008

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

Excel 2007 :: Saving Text In Given Cell To C Drive

Sep 13, 2012

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

Saving A Worksheet As A Asterisk Delimited Text File?

Sep 19, 2013

I am trying to save a worksheet as a txt file. The worksheet has a range of data with a variable amount of rows in column A only. It generally will look like:


where each row of data is in a single cell.Whenever I save it, however, it adds extra tab deliminations in each row after the data, and it adds rows with no data (sometimes just 1, sometimes many).

I am positive that no cells in columns B-n have data in them (even just a space) and no rows after the last intended have data.

Why are these extra rows and columns being inserted? How can I save a txt file that literally has no other spaces or rows or deliminations other than what's intended?

Excel 2007 :: Not Saving Formatting Changes

Oct 13, 2008

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.

Can I change the default delimition to pipe, how can I do this? How can I make an excel file to pipe delimited text file in default?

Excel 2007 :: Add Suffix (1) To Filename When Saving?

Aug 29, 2012

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.

Excel 2007 :: Saving And Loading Single Sheet?

Dec 21, 2011

My set up office 2007 win xp pro ie8

is it possible using vba ideally with a button marked save, to save a single worksheet and name it, in CSV format

Then I would like to be able to do the reverse load a CSV file back in to a work sheet

Expanding upon this

1. Click a command button with caption “save”

2. Take the name of a given sheet, in my case DataToUpLoad and append it with a number to give a sheet name of DataToUpLoad 1 the first time it is save and DataToUpLoad 2 the next time and so on

3. Click another command button with the caption “load” interact with usual dialog box.

My current work around is to copy a sheet open a new work book past the sheet in the save that work book as CSV

The reason this is required is to mate up with the php on the server side

Excel 2007 :: Saving Worksheet As New XLS File Without Compatibility Checker

Apr 24, 2013

We are using Excel 2007.

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 get TN00000.xls

Excel 2007 :: How To Sum A Row Until Text Appears In Another Row

Time spent on each page appears in row 18. Need to sum up all of these pagetimes for each site, to get the total time on site. So in the example below,

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

Excel 2007 :: How To Count Cells Contain Text

Feb 20, 2014

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.

Hypothetical Example:

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

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).
