Import Data From Selected Excel File Into A Specified Worksheet
Mar 17, 2009
I have a workbook which, amongst several worksheets, also includes 12 blank worksheets (one for each month of the year).
Is it possible to have a macro that will (a) first prompt the user to select an excel file to import (the excel files to import are provided each month and only have one tab); then (b) select which worksheet to import the data (values only) from the selected file into.
Below is the code I currently use to do the following which creates service reports.
When you click on the command button you can choose any XML file you want to import. This file is copied to a temporary worksheet where i selectively choose cells to populate textbox's which later populate my reports. What I want to do is the same exact thing but with a text file. Not all text files are the same length so it needs to be able to have a range. Here's my working code.
For Each SheetName In Array("Maintenance Data Sheet") With Sheets(SheetName) .Range("B127") = "" .Range("U127") = "" .Range("AJ127") = "" .Range("AV127") = "" .Range("AY124") = ""
I am using Excel 2013, and I am following the example here: VBScript Scripting Techniques: Read Excel files without using Excel that reads in Excel data as an ADO record set to a classic ASP file using VBScript. I am not able to import all the Excel data successfully, and I need to know what I'm doing wrong. Note that in all these samples cell A1 is the heading text "Column1" and the main data starts on cell A2 (consistent with the example code).
When my source Excel data looks like the following:
Code: Column1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 X 9 10
It imports everything OK. However, if I move the X to the next row:
Code: Column1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 X 10 ...the "X" cell gets imported as an empty string. So the imported array looks like this:
importing some selective data from txt file to excel. Only the following rows I need to pull out from text file into the Excel i.e. Project row, installation row, and two rows immediately below the installation row. This is my logical procedure..
1. Macro look for the rows that contains the word "PROJECT"
2. Open an excel file
3. Pull the row from txt file to this new excel file.
4. Macro look for the rows that contains the word "INSTALLATION"
3. Pull that row with INSTALLATION AS WELL AS Two rows immediately below the INSTALLATION row.
I have a workbook I add report data to, in the form of imported sheets. I know how to do this with text files, but I'm lost on existing excel files. I want to add Sheet1 from one excel file to another workbook. I got this far, but I don't know how to tell the computer to import the data from Sheet1 in the old file into the new version of Sheet1 in the workbook. So I currently get a blank new sheet.
Sub OpenExcelFile() Dim FileToOpen As String Dim wks_exp_src As Worksheet Dim i As Long Dim strSourcePath As String Dim strSourceName As String Dim strSourceExt As String Dim strNewShName As String Dim strNameFinal As String Dim FirstPos As Long Dim bolShCreated As Boolean ChDir ThisWorkbook.Path & "" ' "C:"
I'm using excel 2007 and I'm trying to import data from a .txt file into excel and analyze the data. One of the columns in the .txt file contains descriptions for each row and its in multiple rows. Is there a way to import the .txt file so that it will show a description for each row in one cell?
I imported the data into excel but the issue is the description.
I am using Excel 2010 and I want to import data from a text file, but the problem is that the data is more than 1048576 rows of excel. Is there any solution though codes if one sheet fills up and import remaining data to other sheets ?
I currently have a userform, and on commandbutton_click, it performs the following code that adds a column in a access table to a combobox(cbList)
Private Sub CmdName_Click() Dim rstName As ADODB.Recordset Dim strClientDatabase As String, strConnectionString As String strClientDatabase = ActiveWorkbook.Path & "9001.mdb"......
After its listed on the combo box, upon commandbutton_click on another button, i wish to extract a particular record, based on the selection made on the combobox(cbList). This is where im having problems caused i have no idea how to do so. I just want it to extract the particular record row, based on cbList, and insert it into range A100:D100 in a particular worksheet. It is then updated and added to a listbox which ive already done the coding for, and with another button click it would add the details in the listbox into the appropriate location i wish to.. The only place im stuck is with extracting the data from access into a A100:D100 range in any worksheet. what ive come up with, but is incomplete is :
Private Sub CmdImport_Click() Dim adoRS As ADODB.Recordset Dim strSQL As String Dim strClientDatabase As String, strConnectionString As String strClientDatabase = ActiveWorkbook.Path & "9001mdb" .........
I want to be able to run a macro that will export some of the data from a worksheet called Generated Report into another worksheet called Matrix. The data will be taken Generated REport and grouped into sections of the worksheet. These sections will be defined by the BRID value.
The Data that i want to export will be from the first 5 columns within the Generated Report(note there are other columns which data is not required from).
The following columns will be exported from Generated Report -
BRID,Requirement, Bug Description, Bug ID and Alt Bug ID.
BRIDRequirement Bug DescriptionBUG ID Alt Bug ID PQ115 PQ115-Login Bug Description text xihllloloj43712 123 PQ116PQ116-Landing Bug Description text ghghghgoot 43713 126
The data will be imported into Matrix worksheet into the following columns as part of the row headings
- Requirement, Description, Bug ID and VF Bug ID.There will also be other columns (outlined below) which i will use to manually enter data
The data will be grouped and imported into the relevant section by its BRID eg PQ115, PQ116 etc.
I want each section (marked by BRID number)to be separated by row headings.
These row headings are to be generated after populating all data within each BRID number.
When the data has been populated in each row there is a column called 'Status' which contains drop down list boxes which can be assigned.
The default status will be set to 'To Do'. The complete row headings are displayed with Output from Generated Report underneath
BRID Priority Requirment Description BugID Alt Bug ID PC UpdateNotes Actual Result Type of DEfect Test Status Tested by PQ115 PQ115-Login Bug Description text xihllloloj43712 123 To Do
BRID Priority Requirment Description BugID Alt Bug ID QC UpdateNotes Actual Result Type of DEfect Test Status Tested by PQ116 PQ116-Landing Bug Description text ghghghgoot43713 126 To Do
So far the macro that i have been using allows me to locate the data for each specific BRID in Generated Report and copy into the corresponding BRID section within the Matrix. I have to repeat this step for each new BRID and i want to be able to whole automate this process.
I need to import thousand of txt files into 1 worksheet keeping the file names as data. Each txt file has 2 columns :
1 0.65914 2 0.65945 3 0.86062 ... ... and each txt file represents recordings made at specific time and date (e.g 0158.DSG_RAWD_HMS_21_ 0_ 0__DMY_29_ 2_12_pulses). I would like to have 2 columns: 1) with the time taken from the name of the txt file (e.g. 21:00:00) and 2) the associated recording. Something like this:
Actually i've downloaded Tracking report of my SPO and this report is on 4-5 csv files (1 file per week). I have to gather data from these 4 files into one Worksheet. I have to do this with command button on my worksheet; with Open file dialogue box (i want to locate the csv files).
CSV files are something like that (I need only first 4 columns):
and my Worksheet is like that (With a command Button):
I want to import first 3 columns of csv file on first 3 columns on my worksheet; leave 2 columns blank and then import the 4th column... now for example i have done importing data from 1st csv file and the data is on 50 rows.. i click the command button again, locate the 2nd csv file.. do the same thing (import 1st 3 columns, 2 blank, then 4th) --from 51st Row-- and so on...
I have an Excel worksheet with potentially 1000+ rows of data.
Create a way where I select something (a macro button ?) for that individual row of Worksheet1 -- and it takes selected cell data from that row and inserts it into specified cells in another worksheet (Worksheet2) within that same workbook.
Also, this Excel data (of Worksheet1) will be sorted every week - so the ?macro button? that is used needs to follow the same row when a sort is performed.
I can do this by creating a macro button, but would have to create an individual macro button for every individual row of data. (That's 1000+ macro buttons to create !?!)
Is there better way of doing this with a macro button OR is there a completely different/better way to accomplish the same thing ?
I have a combo-box in a Multipage control. Now I want to get the combo-box populated with list in 2 columns from 2 different consecutive columns from the same worksheet (Product List). Now, Once the list gets populated, user will be selecting his choice from the list, which is then needs to get copied to another worksheet (Order Placed). Both worksheets exist in the same or one spreadsheet.
I am trying to make it work with the following code. I am able to see 2 columns but with no data getting populated. I am working in MS Excel 2007.
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.
I want to read data from Notepad into Excel. I found this code on the net and have been trying to modify it for my needs:
Sub ImportText(FileName As String) Dim X As Long Dim FileNum As Long Dim TotalFile As String Dim Lines() As String Const DataRowStart As Long = 1 Const DataColStart As Long = 1 FileNum = FreeFile Open "C:...data.txt" For Binary As #FileNum.................
This pastes the contents of each line into 1 cell but I want to paste each value into a seperate cell. So in the attached data.txt there are 5 records each of 2 lines. For example in the 1st record I want to paste 05-693-1900 into 1 cell then 0040 in the cell to the right of that, Town A into another cell, 000000 into another cell....and so on. For the 2nd line it should be 000000000033 into one cell, AA28816 into the adjacent cell...and each remaining number into a seperate cell. I also want to leave 3 blank lines before going to the next record.data.txt
I have been using the attached to pull multiple csv files into seperate sheets. This takes all files from a user specified directory and dumps them into a workbook. I only need three specific files. How do I request specific files instead of a wild card.
I'm a novice at Excel trying to create some forms for work. My goal is to have a working workbook that holds all my values from multiple jobs that gets updated daily with additional worksheets that gets sent to me. I'd like to be able to hit a macro in my workbook that allows me to select a file that has been emailed to me and import their values into mine. For example:
While using my active workbook I want to select a file. Then take cells A1:A15 from selected file and paste to cells F1:F15 in my active workbook.
The idea was to save the the selected files specified in the array as individual files. For example, In the Workbook "Main", there are worksheets "Susan", "Mary" and "John". If i specify "Susan" and "Mary" in the array, it should output only these 2 individual files. However, I am only getting the file which is actively selcted in the main. Is there anything wrong with the for loop?
Sub SaveShtsAsBook() Dim Sheet As Worksheet, SheetName$, MyFilePath$, N& Dim ws As Worksheet MyFilePath$ = ActiveWorkbook.Path & "" & _ Left(ThisWorkbook. Name, Len(ThisWorkbook.Name) - 4) With Application . ScreenUpdating = False .DisplayAlerts = False ' End With On Error Resume Next '<< a folder exists MkDir MyFilePath '<< create a folder For Each ws In Worksheets(Array("Mary", "Susan")) SheetName = ActiveSheet.Name Cells.Copy..............................
I have some code that imports a csv file into a workbook. This works fine when i use a file named .csv. I was hoping to use a random file name (in this case .bmhs) so that we can determine which files we need to import.
The problem i have is when importing a '.bmhs' file the data comes in column A and is a comma seperated list. If i use .csv then the commas are used as the column seperators (which i need).
I have a large text file that is generated daily and want to import into MS Access as the end result.
First I need to reformat into the row format in excel rather than the format it is in. The issue is not all the segments are the same number of lines or they may have mutli message lines. The names with colon : after them I want to be field names in the table which I wish the text file to import into. Please, I am looking for assistance with this.
I have attached sample data of the text dump, and the name of the file is as you see but different date on the end. At the very end of the text file you will see the desired output which I will then import into Access
Also every new message begins with the dotted line and the date and time at the end.
I have a folder with multiple text files. I want to import one of these files to a sheet called data in an existing Excel file. The excel file has references to this data sheet on other sheets which I want to keep. I want to save this excel file with the name the text file has and repeat this for all the text files in the folder.
I found a macro a while back which does the job nicely of importing and saving the Excel file, however all the data in the other sheets gets lost once it is saved. How to keep the data?
Sub tgr() Const txtFldrPath As String = "FOLDER WITH TEXT FILES" 'Change to folder path containing text files Const xlsFldrPath As String = "FOLDER FOR EXCEL FILES" 'Change to folder path excel files will be saved to Dim CurrentFile As String: CurrentFile = Dir(txtFldrPath & "" & "*.txt") Dim strLine() As String Dim LineIndex As Long
I have several files from different departments that I have to extract sections of data from and compile into one central file for reporting.
I am very new to VBA but would like to set up a button so that I can import data from closed files in different departmental directories. I have recorded a macro and got it to work if the file is open but I can't seem to get it to work if the file is closed.
