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?

Paste With Text Import Wizard In VBA

May 3, 2006

I am pasting query results from WinSQL into Excel and use 'Paste' and then, from the little Paste Options icon, 'Use Text Import Wizard'. I choose tab delimited and then reset the decimal separater using the 'Advanced' button on step 3. Since I do this daily I would like to create a macro to do it all for me, namely paste what I have already copied to the clipboard using the appropriate settings. Recording doesn't reflect the steps I executed. How can I call the text import wizard from vba with the clipboard contents as input as opposed to a text file?

Reset Defaults For Import Wizard?

Apr 14, 2013

Is there a way to reset the defaults for the text import wizard? I occasionally import a number of files in CSV format, but the wizard defaults to tabs as the means of separating the text. I would like to reset the default on the second page of the wizard to commas, not tabs.

Select And Import Delimited Data File (ERA)

Feb 27, 2012

I need to summarize some data from multiple files but I can't seem to have the user select the file and import it.

It's a ERA(electronic remittance advice) 835 file that will import with the "Import Text File" routine. I've added the "GetOpenFileName" to it but apparently have not appropriately adjusted my "QueryTable.Add" routine.

I removed the .Refresh Backgroundquery:=False line as this was causing an error and this not SQL data.

The desired files have names like this: C123456.835.EDIPROCESSERPROCEEDED

My simpleton code reads:

Sub IMPORT_835()
' IMPORT_835 Macro
Dim InputFile As Variant

InputFile = Application.GetOpenFilename(Title:="Choose your file", _
FileFilter:="All Files (*.*), *.*")

[Code] ........

No data is imported, Why?

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))

I am trying to import a range from a txt file that is not opened. It would be in cell AM2 if opened in excel, or it would be the 38th tab of the 2nd row.

I have it working by opening the file copying the cell and pasting into the destination cell. but I have this looped for each text file in a folder. this takes a very long time.

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.

Parse And Import Text File

Jan 29, 2007

I have a software application that imports audio files and writes information about these files to text files. I'm trying to write and Excel/VBA application that will parse and import the data contained in these files. find a sample of one of these files attached. The big hurdle I am facing is I cannot figure out how to parse this file - the delimiter keeps changing as throughout the file (see example below):

otrk ┤ptrk Č
otrk ╬ptrk Ă
otrk ďptrk ╠
otrk Ôptrk ┌
otrk *ptrk "
otrk ěptrk đ
otrk ■ptrk ÷
otrk ┤ptrk Č
otrk ptrk
otrk đptrk ╚
otrk Ůptrk Í
otrk ■ptrk ÷

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)
