Macro/vba: Grouping Data From Csv Then Import Into Excel
I have a data file saved as csv like this:

Risk Postcode,Effective Year Month,Written Premium,Written Units,Earned Premium,Earned Units,Claim Cost,Claim Count,Glass Manufacture Decade,

what i want to do is to group the record with the same postcode together and just return one record for each postcode in excel.

so the output will have the postcode, the sum of written premium, written units.

I understand i can use Access to do it, but I want just to use excel for this task.

VBA Code To Import Text Files & Process Imported Data
I have two macros one of which imports the data and the other processes the data. These macros were created at different times and need to be joined into a single macro that will combine their operations with slight modification to the importing macro. Let me describe what each of the macros does:

PROCESS macro:
Cycles through the CONTROL CELL on the 1 tab using the VALUES TO TEST. For each value to test it copies the values form the output tabs and pastes them into the A+B tab. Then it removes the duplicate rows there.

Option Explicit
Sub PROCESS() 'This subroutine is called when clicking on the first button
Dim i As Long, j As Long, k As Long 'Those are the variables that will browse through the whole sheets
Dim l As Integer 'this will be used to browse through the values to test
Dim TheSearch(1 To 2) As Object 'This is an array of objects that will be used for the search
Dim TheRange As Range 'This will be used to flag the range of duplicates in the output

'Searching for the Text string 'VALUES To TEST' in the sheet "1" in order to know where the array of values to be tested start
Set TheSearch(1) = Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count + 10, ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Columns.Count)).Find(What:="VALUES TO TEST", LookIn:=xlValues, Lookat:=xlWhole)

VBA Import From Web
Is there any way to change parts of a URL within a macro using the import from web function?

The import from web function as a macro is the following:

With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:= _

I would like say the "4457" part to be dynamic. It can either change by user input, from another function..etc doesn't really matter. The problem is can this change? by string concatenation perhaps? or something else?

Import Specific Fields From Access (VBA)
I have working code to copy the matching records of an Access table into an Excel worksheet, but now I am trying to modify this code so that I can select a couple of specific fields from the table instead of just copying all of the fields (there are 15 fields in the table, but I only actually need 4 of them for this particular report).

Here is the code I am currently using to copy all of the fields over with the matching records:

Const myDB = "DSD Errors DB tester.mdb"
Private Sub CommandButton4_Click()
' Test Field Select button
Dim cnn As ADODB.Connection
Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset
Dim sSQL As String

sSQL = "SELECT * FROM DSD_Invoice_Requests WHERE `Paid?` IS NULL"

How can I modify this so that I put specific fields from the table into columns in Excel that will not line up with the layout of the table? For the sake of the example, let's say that I need fields 2, 4, 6, and 8 of the table to go into columns 1, 2, 3, and 4 in Excel.

Paste With Text Import Wizard In VBA
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.

Import, Format, Convert, Print VBA Module
I was wondering if its possible to build a module that would do the following: a) import a txt file to excel formatting it as text.

b) then in column D would remove the preceding space.

c) then convert data in D according to a separately kept Conversion table (or conversion table could be integrated into the code) and print conversion results into column J.

d) the last step is to print/copy columns A and J so that it looks like the final table in Sheet2.
Here are files attached.

sample data.txt
sample data.xls
conversion table.xls

To summarize I need to go from a txt file like the one attached and arrive at the table in Sheet2 of xls file attached.

External Data In Spreadsheet Without Having To Import All The Data
I'm wondering if I can use external data in an excel spreadsheet without having to import all the data. I basically need a persistent connection with the external data and I want the excel spreadsheet to get the item descriptions by using the item number as the user types in the item number. Writing out the descriptions is killing me and I have all my products in an excel spreadsheet already. I really need someway to link two separate excel files together. One with data and one with user input that searches that data as I type in the item number.

Import Multiple Text Files & Copy Each Import
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

Normalizing Data For Import
I need to import a massive spreadsheet into QuickBase. It will have close to twentyG records when(if) I can do this thing.

The table i'm importing into (Groups) is a details table which carries the 'Many' attribute in a M:N relationship.

There is a column in the spreadsheet (Groups) that is distributed over several columns:

12345---------------SPE-UID, SPE-PRE, SPR-DDR
56789---------------NNI-ZIY, HII-PRE, SPR-DDR

In order to import into QuickBase, I need these data to be normalized:


Can Excel create a normalized arrangement like what I have above without my having to manually work this? It would take days if I had to.

Not Enough Memory On Data Import
I'm trying to import data into my sheet with formulae like this in row1(Columns A:I): ='F:Dir[File.xls]Sheet'!A2.

The files I'm importing the data from all have 50.000 rows and 9 columns, so I copy the formulae downward 50.000 times. This generates an error ('Not enough memory'), not surprisingly. I've also tried to do it in steps by way of VBA; first two thousand, copy and paste values, next two thousand etc. But that doesn't work either.

Does anyone know of a solution to this memory problem or a way to work around it (without opening the files with the data in them).

Import Data Or Lookup
I am trying to import data from an external source file (Excel) into an Excel sheet that will get uploaded into a db accounting system.

The source data varies month to month in the number of rows and need I to import 7 columns.

The upload file will be saved as a text file for the upload.
I tried to use Import External Data, but since the rows vary in size (anywhere from 1 - 2000 rows) I had to create a named range for the entire column. Upon saving this caused all rows beyond the last row of data to have quotes in them which will kill the upload.
Is there a way around this with the Import External Data, or is there a better way through some combination of INDEX, MATCH, INDIRECT or the like?

Import Bloomberg Data
If it is actually not possible to change the way that bloomberg exports the information to excel then i think there might be two potential ways around it...neither of which i am sure how to do...

1) write some sort of macro which takes data from the new workbook, pastes it into the active workbook then closes the newly created workbook. Potential problem here is that whenever it creates a new workbook it has a slightly different name. eg. "abc1" then "abc2" etc.

2) Write some sort of macro which gets a list of companies from bloomberg with upcoming events over the next week, put this into the active workbook and then simply use the bloomberg get functions to fill out the info.

Batch Import External Data
I have several thousand text files, each with three columns of numbers. My goal is to convert each of these to a dbf file with three distinct columns (which is why simply renaming each with .dbf at the end doesn't work.) I can do this for an individual file by using the "Import External Data" Tool in Excel, selecting the "Fixed Width" option (which divides the figures into three distinct columns), and then saving the file as a dbf. I need to do this for several thousand files, however, so I can't do each by hand.

Import Data And Delete Macro
after importing data (data >> get external data >> import text file) and running a macro that contains

Cells(i, 5).EntireRow.Delete Shift:=xlShiftUp

i cannot insert any data into the next column below. why is this so? is it because of the excel memory that remembers that a macro has been previously ran in that cell before? example i import text file into B1 then the data will be imported into different cells using delimiters. the data will occupy from row 1 to 22. After i run the macro which combines fields with similar data the data will occupy row 1 to 15. then when i try to import data into B16. the "import text file" option will be grayed out. why is this so? how do i solve the problem?
