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 (-3340') | 151.30 (15118')

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

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 Multiple Text Files

Dec 11, 2007

I have about 200 text files each with 2 columns. I want to create a single excel spread sheet where the data comprises of the second column from each text file.

Import Multiple Text Files Into Spreadsheet?

Dec 22, 2011

I have about 10k poorly formatted txt files that I need to grab 4 items from each and put in a spreadsheet. How can this be done in Excel or should it be done in Access instead?

Here's a link to what each txt file looks like: MTRP88PF700721.txt

I only need the number next to Posting Journal on line 3 (12686 in this case), the 3 digit number next to Class Total on line 11 (101 in this case), the Extended Cost Final Total and the Extended Retail Final Total (23.77 and 39.30 in this case)

because one of my staff members is currently opening each txt file and typing these figures into a spreadsheet!

Feb 26, 2012

Need to import multiple text files in one shot. (Excel only allows 1 at a time)

Most file names are similar just numbered. ex. JoeBlowfile 1.txt, JoeBlowfile 2.txt, JoeBlowfile 3.txt, etc......

All text files have 30 lines of text

For example: JoeBlowfile 1.txt will start at A1 and end at A30, then JoeBlowfile 2.txt starts at A31 and ends at A60 and so on.....

May need to import 1 to 10000 files at a time.

all in 1 row single line starting at A1

once all files are imported need to export to 1 single text file file saved in XXXX folder with XXXX.txt name.

The code by Jindon works but only for the text files that do not contain a header. Can someone please telll me what I have to change in the code to make the code skip the header information (1st three line) when importing? Currently, if I use Jindon's code, it fails once it tries to import one of these text files. Here is Jindo's

Automate Import Of Multiple Text Files

May 29, 2008

I am new to VBA coding. My boss recently handing me a task where I have to take data which is stored in thousands of fwd files and import it into spread sheets. This can be read with notepad as plain text. This data has about 35 lines of heading info i need to skip. The data i need transfered is stored in columns and each data row is tagged at the beginning with the letter D and comment lines begin with the letter C. The heading info has no such tags.The data is space delimited. Further, some of the columns of data need to be omitted in the spreadsheet. Each data.fwd file gets its own spreadsheet meaning each time i import data i start with a fresh template.xls to import into. The format of the spreadsheet is the same as the format the data is presented in the text file with ten columns, except the text has twelve and two of them need to be omitted.

One more thing, I need to be able to push a button and query the file to import.

How To Import Multiple Text Files Based On Date

Feb 14, 2014

I am trying to an excel macro that will automatically import data from specific files. The basic information is this:

1. There is a MySQL script that runs every day and creates tab-delimited text file named as the date.Example:

OutputDIR
02-14-2014.txt
02-15-2014.txt
02-16-2014.txt

2. I need grab data from each of the files for a rolling 30 day period from the date specified in the sheet. The data needs to go onto the same sheet in Excel.Example: B2 on the "Settings" worksheet says 02-14-2014. So take data from 02-14-2014 minus 30 days (01-15-2014.txt) all the way up to today and consolidate it onto an existing worksheet called "Data."

3. If the date in cell B2 is changed, overwrite the data that was already retrieved and replace it with the new import from the new date.Example: B2 is changed to 01-31-2014. Now take data from 01-31-2014 minus 30 days and overwrite what was already imported in worksheet "Data."

Import Multiple Text Files & List Names

I am a complete novice with VBA and would like to write a macro that will allow me to import multiple text files stored in a folder on my directory into a single excel worksheet. I would also like the name of each text file to be output in a separate column for each row of data in the worksheet i.e. each row is 'named' with the title of the file it comes from.

The text files are comma delimited and have 5 fields e.g.

Import Multiple Text Files Based On Parameters

Mar 11, 2008

I get about 10 text files at the beginning of each month that I need to import into Excel. The file layout does change slightly from month to month so I have an Excel spreadsheet with the layout as the first worksheet. Each text file is in fixed layout form rather than delimited. The structure of that page is that the name of the first text file is in cell A1. The cumulative field widths are below that and the data formats are next to the field widths (in the adjacent column B). T=Text, G=General, D= Date with 3 flavors of Date: YMD, DMY and MDY. For the second text file, it repeats the structure in columns C and D, the third text file in columns E and F etc. What I would like is for the macro to open the first text file (based on the name in cell A1) and import it into a new worksheet (same file) using the cumulative field widths in A2 through A8 and the formats from B2 through B8, then import the next text file to a new worksheet (same file) using the cumulative field widths in C2 through C8 and the formats from D2 through D8 and keep going until all the files have been imported. The sheet names should be the same as the file that is imported (the .txt part of the file name isnt important). Ive attached a copy of the Excel spreadsheet that has the file names, field widths (cumulative) and field formats and a 2 row sample of the text file for the first import.

Read And Import Multiple Text Files Into Excel And Parse Data?

Mar 27, 2014

I am trying to determine a way to quickly import data from text files into Excel and place data in suitable columns (under correct headings). I am thinking I could be asked which file to read and import doing them 1 by 1, or if there is an automated way to cycle through all the files that would be more efficient (filenames are variable).

From the text files I have attached I can tell the column headers and what data should go under each. Not sure how you would describe the delimiting on these files? Are these files in a format that VBA could be used to reduce manual copy and paste approach? I have about 300 of these files I want to extract the data from.

Note: the attached files are from a public access website.

Extract AndParse Out Specific Data From Multiple Text Files

Oct 3, 2008

I have a few hundred data/text files to analyze, some a few thousand lines deep. I would like to grab 5, just 5 numbers describing voltage levels. I know the preceding text for each of these in the cell and the following text as well. I just need to delete everything else and keep these 5 values in a column using a script or a macro, and do so for all these files in a specified folder.

This would be 3 weeks of work and the analysis needs to be done ASAP for my research.

Import Multiple Files

Sep 18, 2008

I need to import about 1500 HTML file into a DB (SQL Server). But (here is the big problem), I only need to import some data of each HTML file (always the same line/variable).

So I thought using Excel as you can say with part of the HTML file you want to import. It works great.

But I did it with one file. Is there a way you can select a whole directory and it does it for you?

Automated Import Of Multiple TXT Files?

Jan 9, 2014

I import into my website a standard .csv file that contains product details from my supplier. Columns contain info such as RRP, Wholesale Price etc and rows for each product. For some reason thats only known to my supplier the text descriptions of each of the products are held on a seperate .txt file, in a separate folder with the .txt filename recorded one of the columns cells, one for each product. There are 1000's of products, each with its own .txt file such as 38675.txt, 37828.txt. As you can imagine to copy and paste into each products cell or to manually import each .txt will take the rest of my life.

how I could automate the input of the diferent .txt contents into the required cells.

Import File Contents (XML) From Multiple Zip Files

Mar 17, 2014

My associates have saved about 2,000 .zip files in a single repository. Each zip file contains a .pdf, and a file called "metadata.xml" - the metadata files are small, only 1-2Kb.

What I'd like to do is import the contents of each metadata.xml file into a single workbook so I can build an inventory of the pdf files.

The full path looks like this:
Z:PrincetonGlobal DataFinancial DataFinancial DataWCFNDL_PRODUCTION128650_TH1X0_ProTechLLC_A_Eng_BBOT__20140317132245.195_bbot.zip

Everything up to and including FNDL_PRODUCTION is exactly the same for each file. Everything after, varies, and is not predictable.

I'm thinking there is some way to say "for each file in repository, import metadata.xml content..."
