Import Specific Rows From Text File

May 23, 2012

I have a .txt file (comma separated) that updates daily, which I need to import into Excel. The .txt file contains data from many years, but I only need the data from 2012. Is there a way to only import rows where the data in column "yearID" equals 2012? Since this is a daily operation, I'd rather not import all the rows and then sort/delete rows every time.

Import Text File From Specific Folder

Aug 26, 2008

I have an Excel workbook with 2 worksheets in it. One of the worksheets imports a txt file and then the other worksheet displays data that formulas I have written have collected.

I usually import the txt file by running through the many steps with the "import data" option. This is good but I want it to be faster.

I used the macro recorder and ended up with the following code

With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:= _
"TEXT;\DesktopImport FolderTest.txt" _
, Destination:= Range("A1"))
.Name = "Test"
.FieldNames = True
.RowNumbers = False
.FillAdjacentFormulas = False
.PreserveFormatting = True
.RefreshOnFileOpen = False

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.

Import A Text File From A Specific Folder Into A Sheet Without Split It To Columns

Sep 26, 2007

I have a variable list. Each column will be 250 digits and numbers of rows will be variable. I want a macro to import a text file from a specific folder into a sheet without split it to columns. So we will work only in column A

Then macro will find B1002 wording in A1. if it is exist, it will copy the next 36 digits after B1002 wording if not then it will search A2 row. The next step will be to search and find another wording "B1001" if it finds it will replace copied 36 digits text. If it can not find B1001 wording it will go to upper row and search B1001 wording here and paste the text. This will go on till row shows #END. This means it reached the end of the list. And then macro will save this file as text file to another folder.

So macro will go to beginning to open other file in the folder and this will go on till last file in the folder.

This is the logic of the macro. Here is the sample of what I want.

Original Data: ....

Import Text File With 2 Rows Per Record Into 1 Row

Jan 10, 2013

I have a text file that contains two rows of data for a single record. when I open the file up in excel, it puts each row into column A. What I need to do is put the 2nd row and combine it with the data in the first row so that i can then run the text to columns wizard and put all the data into its own column.

Here is an example of the data:

TEWAC Dresser Rand SAB 21120-14 1350 1687 3300 80 .80 50 4 2.63 EE-7592 1 2250 46 30.5 14 6
10 12 1 4 .229 .102 2 2 .0303175V/1 HL2 .13 .50 .25 1.5 394 3.000
IP23 Andalas SAB 21000-28.5 1500 1875 415 80 .80 50 4 4.22 EE-7777 80/50 Rise 1 2250 43 30.5 28.5 10
2 13 4 8 .258 .102 0 0 3175V 2 .11 .46 .25 1.5 1.500
CACA Intergen CACA 21120-33 1720 2150 6600 70 .80 50 4 4.56 R971055 50C Amb EE-7467 1 46 30.5 33 14
8 14 1 2 .229 .144 2 2 .0303175V/1 HL2 .20 .65 .30 2.0 697 2.150

What it should look like is the following:

TEWAC Dresser Rand SAB 21120-14 1350 1687 3300 80 .80 50 4 2.63 EE-7592 1 2250 46 30.5 14 6 10 12 1 4 .229 .102 2 2 .0303175V/1 HL2 .13 .50 .25 1.5 394 3.000
IP23 Andalas SAB 21000-28.5 1500 1875 415 80 .80 50 4 4.22 EE-7777 80/50 Rise 1 2250 43 30.5 28.5 10 2 13 4 8 .258 .102 0 0 3175V 2 .11 .46 .25 1.5 1.500

leaving me with 3 rows and one column of data.

I have multiple files with about 600 rows in each that I need to process.

Text File Import Produces Unwanted Blank Lines Between Rows Of Data

Jan 19, 2010

After doing some searching I found a macro here which imports multiple text files into one workbook, keeping each text file as a seperate worksheet, each worksheet named the same as the original file name (minus the .txt extension).

However, it adds a blank line between each line of text. So I get this:

This doesn't happen when I use the import wizard, or when I just open the file from the File -> Open menu.

My text files are always the same format (number of lines, etc.), so it's easy to delimit and insert forumlae as needed, but those extra lines are breaking a macro I've previously written to parse the data.

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 Specific Line From Multiple Text Files

Aug 13, 2008

I have many text files ~5000 and I am searching for a macro that can import multiple files and also search the text file only importing two specific rows (error files may will not have 42 rows) while listing the file name in an adjacent cell.

So in column A I would like the file name, in column B any data in line 42 of the text file and in column C any data in line 43 of the text file.

Here is an example of the data in rows 42 & 43:
11 Waratah Street Mona Vale(2103) - Australie
-33.68 (-33░40') | 151.30 (151░18')

So far I have found the code below that will import all text files into one sheet but it does not satisfy my requirements.

How can this be done faster? I have been trying to figure out how to use For input as ... but haven't been able to grasp how to manipulate the code.

Automate Text File Import

Jun 21, 2007

I found this question from 2004 but it has expired so I could not quote or reply to it. It can be found at Open file search and import text file This was the question:

I'm looking for some code that i can attach to a command bar which allows the user to browse and search for any text file on their C:Drive and then import it. I think i can work out the import using the data import wizard and macro recorder.

Sub DoIt()
Application.Dialogs(xlDialogImportTextFile).Show
End Sub

The original person said they can work out the import using the wizard, but my users are not tech savvy and therefore I was wondering if I could automate the text file showing up in the excel sheet ( named 'Import') after selecting the text file (instead of going to the wizard). I have attached a sample text file for an example (first row being a header)
