Import Large Text File Across Multiple Sheets. Could Not Find Installable ISAM

Apr 19, 2008

I found following code on this site to extract txt files. As mentioned this code can extrack huge txt data to multiple sheets.

Sub ImportLargeFile()
' Imports text file into Excel workbook using ADO.
'If the number of records exceeds 65536 then it splits it over more than one sheet.
'If a file in a different format is to be imported amend the extension at line 10
Dim strFilePath As String, strFilename As String, vFullPath As Variant
Dim lngCounter As Long
Dim oConn As Object, oRS As Object, oFSObj As Object.............

However I am getting Run time error '-2147467259(80004005)': could not find installable ISAM for section 'Open an ADO connection to the folder specifiedin above code

Could Not Find Installable ISAM

Sep 3, 2009

I use XL07 (in the absence of help --> about, I no longer know where to find the version number).

I work with several colleagues who use XL03, and we email spreadsheets back and forth.

I use a fair number of queries that reference tables in other excel workbooks.

Whenever I email a certain workbook to any of my 03 colleagues, and they refresh the query and send it back to me, the following happens:

1. When I try to edit or refresh the query, I get an error message that reads "ODBC Excel Driver Login Failed" in the title and "Could not find installable ISAM" in the message.

2. When I click OK, I get a "select database" window. I cancel out of that.

3. I go back into data --> refresh all --> connection properties --> definition and look at the connection string. Part of that string reads ";DriverId=281;FIL=MS Access"

4. I delete that part of the connection string, hit ok, and the query works fine (though making this change causes the query to refresh, something I'd occasionally like to avoid).

5. I make whatever other changes I need to make, email the workbook back to my colleagues, they make changes, send it back to me, and the exact same problem occurs.

Excel 2010 :: SQL Query DB - Error - Could Not Find Installable ISAM

Jan 19, 2014

I am trying to perform an SQL query on an Excel worksheet, as per one of the examples in Michael Alexander's book "Excel and Access Integration: With Microsoft Office 2007" and I am encountering an error message.

Could not find installable ISAM

To clear I am trying to pull data from one Excel workbook to another using SQL.

I am using Excel Excel 2010 64 bit.

This is the code I am running.

Code:
Sub GetData_From_Excel_Sheet()
Dim MyConnect As String
Dim MyRecordset As ADODB.Recordset

[Code]....

I have some across a few times that relates specifically to Excel 2010 64 bit is that I need to install the following driver

Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable

However I already have this driver (I installed when I was trying to figure out how to write from Excel to Access).

Why am I receiving this message. It occurs when my code reaches this line:

Code:
MyRecordset.Open MySQL, MyConnect, adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly

Import LARGE Text File

Import Large Text File Of Numbers Without Excel Splitting Numbers?

Jul 19, 2014

I have a text file with rows and columns of numbers ranging from 1-4 digits that I'd like to import/copy into Excel with each number being in its own cell. But whenever I copy/try to import, Excel splits all of the 3-4 digit numbers up into single digit numbers. The text file has 10,000+ columns (each number occupies two columns so I have half of that amount in numbers) and 300+ lines.

Is the file simply too large for Excel to handle or is there a way I can do this?

Import Text Dialogue/Wizard: Select File Once For Multiple Queries

Aug 7, 2006

I am importing a text file that has a lot more than 256 columns. The data will be updated weekly with a different text file. I know how to get past the 256 column limit when importing a text file like this. This link explains the method I am using to import the text file. [url] Since I am importing onto several sheets I get the dialogue box asking me to choose a file to import from for every sheet when I use RefreshAll. The same file that is used by the first sheet will be used by the rest of the sheets. Each sheet just imports a different section of columns from the text file. I want to avoid choosing the same file 30 plus times (once for each sheet) when I click refresh all. Is there a code that would allow me to choose the file for the first sheet, and the other sheets would follow suite?

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

Import Text File Into File Where Rows Exceed Excel Row Limit

Jun 3, 2009

I have a workbook with many spreadsheet named Sheet1, Sheet2 and so on. Each sheet is filled completely upto 65536 rows. This data is being picked up from a CSV file. In this file there are sites with each site there is a assciated set of data. What happens is the data that extracts data does not differntiate between sites and when it reaches to the end of worksheet it splits the data into next sheet. So I am trying to create a macro to check each spreadsheet starting with the last sheet in the work book for example last sheet in the workbook is seven it should go to sheet6 and if there is a blank row after row 64000 it should cut all the rows and move them to sheet7. Then it should goto sheet5 and do the same and keep on doing it until it reaches sheet1.

Text File Import With Text To Columns Splitting Same Text Differently

Nov 21, 2007

I have a macro which imports data from a mainframe dump text file and performs 'Text to Columns' on the imported data so that formula in the spreadsheet can act on the data. The code works perfectly well when I use it, but if a different user logs on and performs exactly the same mainframe dump and import macro the Text to Columns action splits the raw data in a different way and the result is that the split renders the formulae useless.

I've experimented a little and for some reason it appears that the 'Field Info' parameters which are produced when the Text to Columns function is recorded in a macro differ between users even though the raw data is exactly the same.

FieldInfo:= _
Array(Array(0, 1), Array(18, 1), Array(35, 1), Array(56, 1), Array(70, 1), Array(88, 1), _
Array(102, 1))

Import Sheets Where File Path Is Date Based

Jan 8, 2008

I have a script that generates various worksheets based on the day and puts these in folders based on the year/month/day. So a report run today would be in the F:200817 folder.

At the end of each month and then again at the end of the year I need to pull all the reports into a single workbook. The macro I have now allows you to select the folder you want to import the sheets from, but it doesn't recurse subdirectories, so I can only import sheets from a specific day into a workbook, but not from a month/year.

Find And Replace Data From File Import?

Mar 24, 2014

.Find and Replace data

I have a file that I keep importing into Excel that shows up in Column A. The Range typically varies to how short or how long the end of the file is. But every time I import a file in, the last 20 rows are the same. The 20 rows I want to replace with other values on another sheet.
This is a simple example:

SHEET_1
COLUMN A
1
2

[Code]....

I would want to replace the numbers with the letters. The biggest thing is if I can filter or have excel find the end of the file (using a shift+crtl+End) or something and have a formula on sheet2 that it can reference; then replace. Any way to have excel automatically find the end of the file and replace values without manually doing it.

Open Large Text File With Query?

Sep 20, 2006

I have a large text file (greater than 64k lines) which I need to import into excel. I only need anything imported from the text file that is for dates I specify. So I would like to run a line by line query and only import the lines I need.

The dates are always in position 43-50 (dd-mm-yy) in the text file itself, so the code would have to look at that section, see if the date is within the range specified and only import if it is (and then move onto the next line).
