Import Text Files To A Sheet In Existing Excel File

Jul 25, 2014

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?

Code:

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

[Code].....

Excel 2010 :: Import Text Files To Include File Name As Data?

Jul 12, 2012

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:

21:00:00 0.65914
21:00:00 0.65945
21:00:00 0.86062

and so on for each txt file and all the recordings piling up in 1 spreadsheet. I have tried to run few codes in VBA, but I have no knowledge of it and none of the code worked. I am using Excel 2010.

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 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.

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 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.

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..."

How To Import All Data In Files In A Directory - File Names Change Each Day

Oct 9, 2008

I have a directory where our customer service people deposit forms each day. The form is always the same, with a number of columns that need to be copied into a master list. From there they are analyzed, sorted, etc, then exported, so the number of rows in that list varies from day to day as well. Is there some way to have VBA import each file sequentially from a directory if I do not have the exact file names?

I am using this import code from a macro to start with:

Sub importdata()
' importdata Macro
Range("A2").Select

Import Few Txt Files From One Directory To One Sheet

Jul 26, 2006

My text files look like this(each has different number of rows):
2006-08-25 13:33:20 82,8 g
2006-08-25 13:34:10 58,5 g

between each column there is Tab

To import them from one directory (directories are named as month e.g. 8) I used:

Sub Consolidate()
Dim mnthNum As Integer
Dim myBook As Workbook
Dim myRows As Long

With Application
.DisplayAlerts = False
.EnableEvents = False
. ScreenUpdating = False
End With

and it works almost perfectly.. the problem is that each time it loads next file it overwrites the previous..

e.g. if i have in my directory 4 files and sum of the rows is 20 it will show only 17. The import is good because I checked it with debugger but each time a new file is copied it starts from last row of previous file.. that's the problem I can't solve...

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!

How To Import Multiple Text Files In One Shot

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.

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.

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 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.
