I have about 180 Excel files (each one with 51 columns and around 30,000 rows) that need to be exported to an Access table.I'm using the routine below which is extremely time-consuming. I'm sure there is a better way to export an excel file to an Access table.
Dim rst As Object
Dim cn As Object
Dim i As Long
Dim lstCell As Long
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
lstCell = [a65536].End(xlUp).Row
If lstCell = 1 Then Exit Sub
I have a script that exports an excel worksheet into an access db table and thsi is working fine. However i want to define a specific worksheet where the data is being exported from within the code but im having trouble doing, its using just a range at present.
I have a macro that exports data from an excel worksheet into a Access database table. I have two worksheets one called "Datasheet" and the other called "Template", the data that i want to export is on the "Datasheet" worksheet and i have the button to export the data on the "Template" sheet. The macro works and exports the data if i have the button on the "Datasheet" worksheet but its doesnt work if i have the button on the "Template" sheet. Can anyone see where the problem is, im not getting any errors, the data is just not going to the access table.
I was looking for some help on a VBA solution. I would like to run an on open event for a scheduling workbook. It should open a logging workbook, write the %username% to the first blank line in A:A then save and close the logging workbook, leaving the scheduling workbook open and ready for input.
The following UNC can be used as the location for the logging workbook....
I've been trying to make this work for hours and hours and am finally giving up. Most of this code was found on the internet and I've attempted to make it work for my project but I keep getting errors. I use VBA with Excel quite often but never with Access before. Currently I am getting an "Object doesn't support this property or method" error at rs.Findfirst.
I have an excel worksheet that mimics the access table with five fields, an ID field, lastName, FirstName, DeptID (int), Email. I want to search the Access table for a match on the email field, and if it doesn't find the match, to add a new record using values typed into the excel sheet.
Code: Sub UpdateDB() Dim cn As Object Dim rs As Object
I have a large text file that is generated daily and want to import into MS Access as the end result.
First I need to reformat into the row format in excel rather than the format it is in. The issue is not all the segments are the same number of lines or they may have mutli message lines. The names with colon : after them I want to be field names in the table which I wish the text file to import into. Please, I am looking for assistance with this.
I have attached sample data of the text dump, and the name of the file is as you see but different date on the end. At the very end of the text file you will see the desired output which I will then import into Access
Also every new message begins with the dotted line and the date and time at the end.
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?
I have made some macros for importing data from a txt fileand to sort the data into a sheet ready to be exported into another txt file. I have made VBA to work with "." as decimal separtor within the spreadsheet.
But, when I run the macro to export the data into a txt file (I have used the macros from this site [URL] .....) it automatically changes all "." into ","
I need the txt file to load data into another program, and this program need the use of "." as decimal separator - and not ",".
I need the name of the name of the txt file to use the values in cell AE1 & Q1 from a sheet titled Project Report. eg cell AE1 contains 1783 and Q1 contains Ore Vally so the file name needs to be 1783 Ore Valley.txt
In the sheet TI, under column A, there are cells that contain the number 0. I want the export to ignore any rows which have a 0 under column A
The data from each colum in the sheet TI needs to be separated by TABs and not commas, ful stops, semi colons, colons etc etc.
Once all of this works, i need to be able to just click on cell J1 in sheet Project Report so that with this single click the txt file is produced.
I've attached 2 test files, one is the database master file containing the projects (each row represents a project, unique reference number in column A) and the other is the blank template file i'm hoping to export data into and then save down with the naming convention "column A_column B.xlsx"
Kept the test files simple but would need to modify any code to apply to much larger database consisting of many more fields etc.
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.
I have been presented with an excel document, with image names in one column (e.g. 832005_001), and hyperlinks in another column [URL]
My goal is to export the hyperlinks in the excel document into a folder as images with the corresponding image names. Is this possible to do without manually opening each link and saving it in a document, and manually renaming each picture in accordance with its image name? (as there are over 4,000).
I have this excel sheet which I want to export to a word document. The following code has been used:
It creates a word document but it only copies and pastes a picture of the excel sheet. I want for the user to edit the word document values that are pasted from the Excel sheet. I know I need to change somewhere in the:
How can I paste values from excel to word that can be modified inside of word?
How can I change the layout of the word document, for example if I want to add a header and a footer?
I have a spreadsheet with sales information contained in Sheet1. There are a number of columns including the Region column. I would like a bit of code that exports sales information to a number of Excel files dependent upon the region column. In other words the Region column can contain either North, East, South or West. I would like a different Excel file per region and I'd also like the file names to contain the name of the region + the month and year of the previous month ie if i was exporting today then the North Excel file would be called: "North Sales - Jan 2013".
I have a very indepth spreadsheet at work. We also have a form that was typed up in word that uses some of the information from the spreadsheet. I was wondering if there is a way to have the information from the spreadsheet autofill the form that is in word?
I am trying to export the emails from outlook to an excel by the normal method. Here the body of the method is not exporting properly in to my excel. Is there any macro or a vb code to export the body of the messages to excel.
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
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.
I've been using a script I found on the web to export a book of 15 worksheets so that they are saved into a folder as 15 separate .csv files - these are to then be imported into Adobe InDesign at a later date.
Currently, the code looks like this:
VB: Sub SheetsToCSV() 'Jerry Beaucaire (1/25/2010) 'Save each sheet to an individual CSV file Dim ws As Worksheet, OldDir As String
If possible, I would like the sheets to be exported as consecutively numbered files, so that they can be set into the order they are exported in Windows Explorer, rather than alphabetically.
I have created a 'price list' database in ACCESS. Then in EXCEL I created a pivot table which retrieves data from one of the database queries (the query was saved as a .dqy file).
I emailed the file containing the pivot table to a colleague who is on the same server. He saved the excel file on he desktop & renamed it. When I update the databse file on a shared public drive on the server, he is able to 'refresh' his desktop file successfully !!
I have sheet where I need to restrict access to a select group of individuals. I have a formula in a select case statement that runs from the workbook_open event and have hard coded the names of the individuals who can access the file. If they are not on the list, they are prompted for a password. This works OK, but I have sheet that is hidden and want to maintain the list of users there and update the code to loop through the values in a named range. I have a snippet of the current code below.
Code: Select Case function_name Case Is = "user1" Run "enable_access_code" Case Is = "user2" Run "enable_access_code" Case Is = "user3" Run "enable_access_code" Case Else ' User not authorized or opened while not on company network ' Prompt for project password form_Password.Show End Select
There are many examples and aspects to compare these 2 products but I just want to point one little difference which is quite crucial and interesting.
Generally if you use small amount of data - 1 Worksheet / 5000 rows / 20 columns you can use Excel without bothering about the execution time, queries and work fast and convenient with it.
The point on Excel is that in 1 Column/Row you can differently Format the data(cells). For example - format as Number or Hour the cells in Column B depending on the data in other columns. That saves you from making 2 Columns - one for Numbers and another one for Hours. This helps you to save 1 of the columns when the data structure in other column is the same.
In Access (and generally all SQL DBs) this is not possible.
