Import Website Data Into Excel (Scrapping Of Data)
Jun 20, 2014
I have a tedious task of copy/paste from our website. have a look at below sample data. I have around 1500 rows of data like this.
Column A has input data which i need to copy and paste in a web form. Column B will have results scrapped form webpage[ URL]. This webpage will need login details
If a code can be written which take value form column A of spreadsheet and paste in webpage like shown in above image and hit search button. Next webpage will be loaded with number of results like shown in below. Take the number of results and paste in column B of spreadsheet.
Doing all 47 pages at once may cause their site to block your IP. Though usually only temporarily - a few minutes to a few days. You could do it in sessions by changing "For i = 1 To 47" to the appropriate page numbers. After each session be sure to rename the "Stats" sheet as the code starts by deleting and re-creating it. After all sessions combine the various "Stat" sheets.
Doing all 47 at once will take a few minutes to complete and you won't see anything happening. The cursor will only spin occasionally. You wil get "Query complete" when it finishes.
Sub QueryWeb() Dim i As Integer Dim firstRow As Integer Dim lastRow As Integer Dim nextRow As Integer Dim URLstart As String Dim URLend As String
This code works like charm. Is is possible to develop a code like this which open each each name from this page- [URL]....
copy details like Attorney Name, email, phone and fax nos. and paste the same into excel rows.
My Excel Spreadsheet has columns named "Hospital Name | Overview | Address | Phone | Fax | Contact Person 1 | Contact Person 1 Title | Contact Person 2 | Contact Person 2 Title | Contact Person 3 | Contact Person 3 Title"
There is the list of hospitals starting from "Abbott Northwestern Hospital". I have two things in my mind to extract the information. If you click on the first hospital name "Abbott Northwestern Hospital". Below is an example text which I would like to transfer it automatically in columns given above;
This text should go in column named "Overview":
Abbott Northwestern Hospital bring twins into the Twin Cities -- along with triplets, quadruplets............
This text should go in column named "Address": 800 E. 28th St.Minneapolis, MN 55407
This text should go in column named "Phone": 612-863-4000
This text should go in column named "Fax": 612-863-5667
This text should go in column named "Contact Person 1": Jeffrey D. (Jeff) Peterson
This text should go in column named "Contact Person 1 Title": President
This text should go in column named "Contact Person 2": Daryl Schroeder
This text should go in column named "Contact Person 2 Title": VP Operations
This text should go in column named "Contact Person 3": Sandy Schmitt
This text should go in column named "Contact Person 3 Title": VP Strategic Development, Allina Hospitals and Clinics
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 would like to extract some text from a word file and transfert it into an excel spreadsheet. My text is always presented in the same way. First there is a line with some data (see exemple bellow). I have no problem to extract them using the macro bellow even it's not perfect.
My problem is on the main text. I weed to keep the format or at least the different paragraphes as when you copy text in word and past it in the formula bar (or press F2).
Here is an exemple of my word file
Code : XXX1- Abrege : DGS45 - Type : D - ADICAP : PHXT5847
I found a good piece of code to import data from text files into excel. they are delimited
I keep getting an overflow error, and then I get the error that the file is already open?
Sub OpenTextFiles() Dim strFiles() As String Dim strFName As String Dim strFPath As String Dim IntFile As Integer Dim sep As String 'define the directory strFPath = "C:UsersXXXXXDesktopHOLDINGTEXT into Excel"
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:
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" .........
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 use Google Spreadsheet to feed some data online. Later on I use Excel to import this data that it is hosted at Google to do a better handling (reports, charts, etc). However when I import the data from Google, the contents of 1 row is splitted on 4 in Excel.
Are there any way to keep the same formatting from the original ?
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.
I am importing data into an Excel 2007 worksheet from an online form. They are answers to 30 questions for up to 250 respondents. I was expecting to import one row of data for each respondent however the data is importing in a step like manner as below
Q1Q2Q3 AF169856 Y AF169856N AF169856N AF145723 N AF145723Y AF145723N
Any formula/solution to bring all of these responses into one line for each respondent ?
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.
Is it possible to disable Import Data Dialog box in Excel 2010? I have a web query file. I want to copy its content and paste in a new worksheet under an existing workbook. I have a macro which does that but I get Import Data dialog box when I tried to paste the copied content from test.iqy file to new sheet. The dialog box has
Select how you want to view this data in your workbook? By default Table is selected, which is fine.
Where do you want to put the data? By default New workbook is selected. I want to have Existing worksheet selected by default.
Is there a way to set these requirements into vba code and make this dialog box not appear at all?
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 have small bit of import code (below), that I am looking to modify. The data that I am importing is for an inventory tool that determine optimal on hand quantities and alerts to any issues. In the past there had been one inventory source (one .csv data file). So I populate that to one sheet and modify the data on that sheet. I now have multiple data sources that I need to address.
There are two things that I would like to add/be able to do.
1) I would like to add a dropdown or set of multiple buttons to the popup window that says "Select the OnHand Report". Previously I only had one report source which I posted to sheet "orow0205". I have 2 other data files now that I have to import and they need to go to sheets "orow0206" and "orow2144". I am grabbing the data the same way on each sheet so that doesnt need to change I just need the option on the pop up window to determine the sheet name I want the import to go to.
2) The files that come from the sources above have a file name like "20121213_00000_groupstatistics.csv". Where the first eight digits represent the date the file was generated. If possible, after I select the sheet via the popup solve above, I would like to have the date populated in "MM/DD/YYYY" format in the last column of the imported data (the same date for each row of data imported). The file imported has no date data on it and can represent any day (which is why I am not using some form of TODAY formula).
Part of my work involves the transfer of thousands of lines of Excel data into FileMaker and then exporting this data to Word where it is finally formatted for publication. What I'd ideally like is to skip the FileMaker step and simply have it so that I import all the data from my Excel file into a Word document in one swoop. The problem is that the eventual export can't feature tables, it would be the icing on the cake for the data to remain as formatted, and the data needs to read line<space>line<space>, vertically.
Essentially, I need to know how to take this from Excel ..
I am attempting to modify VBA code from [URL] .....
The section of the code I want to modify is below dealing with importing selective text. The original function returned a "False" if the line contained a keyword specified in the Array function. I have reworked it so that it shows a "True" if the line contains a keyword specified in the Array function.
My only problem is that it only does it when the keyword appears in the beginning of the line, as it uses the "Left" operator in looking at line. How do I configure the function so that it returns a "True" if the keywords appears anywhere in the line?
I'm trying to create some vba code that will go into other .xlsx documents, pull all cells with a value in the first 30 columns and then return them as a table. Basically each work crew has a .xlsx spreadsheet containing their schedule and I am trying to bring them all together into one nice little package. If I go to import from external sources then click XML data, navigate to the folder they are in and them click show all files and pick my spreadsheet it imports nicely. Then I go to the next blank cell in column "A" and repeat for the 4 crews. Now I can filter by each crew but all 4 are visible on a single page as a table. I recorded a macro that shows everything I did, but it is not dynamic (the .xlsx source files name changes based on the month) I'm running XP sp3 with Excel 2010
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:
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.
