How To Import XML Identifying Certain Tags / Headers

Aug 17, 2010

I am about to re write my vba project as I can see that I need to make it more robust. One of the main issues I have is that the source XML file is not controlled by me. The quality and content is consistent but sometimes the order of the columns is different. At the moment that totally throws out my macro as it relies on certain columns for certain functions.

Trying to nut out the best way to import an XML file, keep only the specific columns I want - by content not location so then all follow on formula's will work and reference the correct data.

I have one theory that I can't get going. I thought if using defined names based on column headers this would allow me to keep and sort the columns I want. I can't find any examples to support this. I have been looking at the advanced filter but most examples reference exact cells which isn't flexible and leaves open to wrong data being pulled. Since I can't control the source doc what can I do?

Import Columns Based On Row Headers And Matching

Jul 9, 2012

I have a nice little code which imports data from a mastersheet to my input sheet. Though it will only work as long as the mastersheet is static.

I'm trying to match the product code in column A between my mastersheet and my workbook with a input sheet. And then copy the cell value in column D and E of the relevant row.

The messy part is that some of the products are split into sub categories (less than :$$$:, between :$$$: etc) and they dont have any info in column A.

I'm unsure if this is doable. Is it? And if I get permission to edit the mastersheet somewhat.

I tossed in the start of my currect static c/p, thought I don't think I'm keeping it if I get a handle on this match macro issue.

Dim ws As Worksheet, wb As Workbook, t As Date, wb1 As Workbook, wb2 As Workbook, wbName As String, janei As String, spm As String
Dim fil
Set wb1 = ActiveWorkbook
ChDir ""

[Code] .........

Sorting Bag Tags Based On Scores

Jun 2, 2014

Here is the data i'm working with.

Name of player
Score of round
bag tag the player came in with
bag tag the player is leaving with

Here is what I'm trying to accomplish. I usually just copy and paste (then sort the data) but I want a spreadsheet that I can enter raw data and just look at the results I will already have the players names in my sheet. Before the round I'll get everyone's tags it will not always be in order (EX: 1,3,15,22,34,66...etc) some tags will always be missing. After the round I'll enter the scores. What I can't figure out is how to leave my sheet in alphabetical order and have my spreadsheet populate the "leaving tag" column with the correct tag based on the players score....

name score tagin tagout
bob 22 2 2
carl 44 15 23
ed 33 23 15

Can't tell if that translated, couldn't use a table....

basically I would like to leave column A where it is the whole time add the data to column B and C The use the data from column B to sort the values from column C numerically to column D (basically copy and rank then display the numbers in order). To throw in a twist if the data in column B is the same for two or more people the formula would need to take the lower number from column C to determine who gets the lower tag in column D.

having to create some kind of database in access....

Set Pie Chart Tags To Equal Value In Cell

Oct 14, 2011

I have a pie chart, and the value's are based off of a refreshable query. How can I set the pie chart tags to, for example, =C14 and then the next tag =C15?

I know you can go to source data, and select the cells that you want the pie chart to display, but the problem with that, is when the data is refreshed the data in the cells refresh, whereas the pie chart tags do no.

Displaying Comments And Tags From Files With Excel VBA

Sep 24, 2013

Finding a way to tell excel to pull Comments and Tags from files. I pulled the following code from another source:


'Force the explicit delcaration of variables
Option Explicit
Sub ListFiles()

'Declare the variables
Dim objFSO As Scripting.FileSystemObject
Dim objTopFolder As Scripting.Folder

[Code] ....

I have been using it to get the Name, Size, Type, and relevant Dates associated with files in a folder. However, this doesn't seem to work with finding Comments, Tags, etc.

I have found functions that are used to pull Comments and Tags from files but haven't been able to incorporate them in to the code I already have.

Adding Bold Tags To Parts Of A String?

Oct 21, 2011

I'm trying to figure out a macro that will add b and /b tags around bold text. Bolded text can appear multiple times within a cell. I need it to run on all cells within a sheet.

So I need it to:
1. Search for bold strings within cells
2. Identify the length of the bolded strings
3. Add b and /b at the beginning and end of those strings
4. Repeat for all active cells

The only macro I was able to work out adds tags to only the last bolded string, whereas I need the tags on several non-continuous strings.

Macro To Label Folders With Tags And Filter As Required?

Jan 29, 2014

Basically I have a large database of folders of examples of projects/notes etc, each with essentially lots of potential topic "tags". I want to sort them to be able to tell the macro what topic I am looking for and it give me the folders that contain that info. I will need to tag each folder individually (which is no problem). I am looking for a piece of script (that either exists or that I can write) that will do the following:

- tag specific folders with numerous "tags". The folders will all be stored in a database. The tags will be user input.

- sort these folders based on specified tags and show filepath/location/name/file number or something unique based on the tags input.

Write Data To HTML File With Custom Tags

Nov 14, 2006

I'm trying to take the contents of an excel speadsheet and write it to an html file with my own formatting. For example I would like the row:


to end up in the html file as:

<td class="align-right">32</td>
<td class="">28</td>

In theory it seemed fairly simple to loop through a sheet and write before and after each cell, but once I tried writing the code I realized I was in way over my head.

Excel 2003 :: Expanding List To Use In Mail Merge Program To Produce Tags For Direct Mailing

Sep 25, 2012

I have an Excel 2003 list with four columns as shown below:





I want to "expand" this list to use in a Mail Merge program to produce tags for our direct mailing. Each bundle contains 50 letters, so in the first line on the above spreadsheet, there will be 13 bundles of 50 and 1 of 43. Currently, I can cut and paste to create the following table, but there has to be an easier way...



[Code] ........

So as I pull this into a mail merge I will get a tag that shows the zipcode, the crrt, the total pieces for that crrt, then number of the bundle for example " 1 of 14" and the quantity in that bundle, for example "50 of 693", then the next bundle tag will print, 3 to a page. I know that here has to be an easier way either in the mail merging process itself or with EXCEL? Am even open to build these with ACCESS to create the tags. The beginning database contains anywhere from 350 to 800 lines of original data, so as you can see the cut and paste is VERY time consuming.

Import Multiple Text Files & Copy Each Import

Jan 29, 2008

I'm attempting to import around 200 (and growing!) separate text files into Excel. I am using the formula below to import the text file and then using a separate macro to select the information I need, copy it into another spreadsheet, and then run the import macro again.

However, I have a problem in that my import macro gives me 'Run-time error '1004:

Application defined or user defined error''. At first this wasn't a problem as the information is pasted into the spreadsheet despite the error anyway. However, now that I am looping the macro it is obviously causing more problems as it prevents the loop. I would really appreciate it if anyone knows of a work-around or can spot an error in the coding to resolve this!

The code below shows is for the import macro only:

Sub ImportTextFile(FName As String, Sep As String)

Dim RowNdx As Long
Dim ColNdx As Integer
Dim TempVal As Variant
Dim WholeLine As String
Dim Pos As Integer
Dim NextPos As Integer
Dim SaveColNdx As Integer

Standard Way To Organize Sections Of Code With Code Tags?

Jul 25, 2014

Is there a standard way to organize sections of code with code tags? Due to the nature of my work, there is a lot of documentation involved. And, my spreadsheets rely heavily on VBA. These code tag sections will be going into a design specification, so that there is a layer of traceability from the document to the program. These are the general sections or item numbers that I've come up with.

1. Dimensions and Variables

2. Data

3. Processing the Data

4. Rules of analysis

5. Analysis

6. Formatting

I guess I'm looking for something standard like UML diagrams for DFDs, but with tagging code to break them up into sections?

IF Function Identifying Value Within A Range?

2. The value in column AA is between -10% and 10%

When both are true, it should return a value of "YES" (or "NO" when untrue). I am having trouble with the range part. It could be that the range spans negative and positive integers, but I'm not sure. Here is what I've got at the present time:

Identifying Peaks In Data

May 5, 2009

I've collected some data from a GPS logger regarding the speed of an athlete. I want to calculate how many sprints this particular athlete undertook during a training session.

Sprinting is defined as a speed of > 20 kph.

One sprint would be the attainment of one peak >20 kph before decreasing below 20 kph.

It's easy to identify the 3 peaks and thus sprints from the xy scatterplot in the attached file, but I'm struggling to find a way to calculate this.
