Importing Tab Delimited Text File

May 4, 2009

am in a time crunch to write VBA code(not use the macro recorder) to do the following:

Input data from a tab delimited Text file into a pre-formatted sheet.

Each column of the text file is as follows (product code, buy/sell, quantity, price, date) Example row below.

YM Buy 50 12800 1/2/2008

Is there code I can use to do this? I need each individual piece of data to import into it's own cell while keeping the Row/column alignment of the original text document.

Convert Text Delimited File To .xls File Using Vba

Nov 28, 2008

how to word it but if someone understands then please help. I have two excel data files namely Book1.xls & Book2.xls. Both files have different data in it. Both files contain macros. When these macros run the files become **FINALIZED** version.

Originally, I get the above files in my email as txt. attachments. I then move these two txt files to my desktop in a folder called Folder-1. Then I open these files as an Excel and save them.

Basically, I need to know if two txt files are sitting in a folder-1 on my desktop. What can I do or what can I clik that....those two text files get converted into excel automatically, including running that macro I talked about in the above paragrah.

To put it differently, if I have two txt files Book1.txt, Book2.txt in a folder, how can I automatically create an excel **FINALIZED**version which sits right next to their txt version.

VBA To Read In Delimited Text File

May 21, 2014

I've a word form that collects free text and tick boxes. I'm reading these into separate rows on an excel sheets. So far what works...

I've got excel vba converting the word to a delimited text file
I've got excel vba to remove the erroneous rtns that people have entered into the free text that was things up.

In the free text there are commas entered as well as the tick boxes and this is a csv. Example
"how do I do this, I don't know",1,1,0,1,"really seems to be a challenge!"

If I just use excel to open the text file then the columns work out ok and on a single row - I think the 'text qualifier' is playing a role here.

But I can't replicate this in VBA. If I record a macro it's a query table and I don't know how to amend the code to read into rows.

Text File But Comma Delimited

Sep 28, 2007

In my workbook I have 10 columns with data, starting at A12 and down. This could be several hundred rows.
I would like to export the first three columns only (Column A, B and C). The TXT file should have the following:
First line: "This file was exported from Excel"
Second line: The value of cell B4 of the worksheet
Third line: The value of cell B5 of the worksheet
Fourth line: Today's date ( as 27/Sep/2007)
Fifth line: No entries (Empty row)
Sixth line will be the first numeric transfer. This is cell A12 value, cell B12 value and cell C12 value.
Seventh line: Cell A13 value, cell B13 value and cell c13 value.
etc, until the end or selected amount of rows.
The values of the different columns should be separated by commas
Column A values could be 9 characters (5 numerics with 4 decimals - 12345.6789)
Column B values could be 10 characters (6 numerics with 4 decimals - 123456.7890)
Column C values could be 10 characters (6 numerics with 4 decimals - 123456.7890)

The text file therefor would look as follows:

This file was exported from Excel.
Company ABC
On this continent
27/Sep/2007

123.4567, 23.7654, 123.4567
1234.5678, 123.4567, 987.6543
12345.6789, 6.0000, 2.9876

I tried to adapt jindon's code but no luck.
I am currently doing it the long way.
='[Workbook1.xls]MySheet'!$A12&", "&'[Workbook1.xls]MySheet'!$B12&", "&'[Workbook1.xls]MySheet'!$C12
This works but I really liked what jindon did and wondered if it could be adapted to fit my needs.

Editing Contents Of A Text File Which Is Delimited

Aug 2, 2009

I have a text file, which has a column of wrong data. I can change it manually by loading it into Excel but it is semi-colon delimited and I can't export to such a file.

I therefore, would like to write a VBA tool, which reads the file and edits the the value between the 5th and 6th semi-colon and will continue do this for each row (the new value is constant across the rows).

Excel - Default Tab Delimited Text File

Jul 14, 2014

When I converted excel to text file via VB code, the default text file is tab delimited. Why is it so?

I've done:

Code:
Sub ConvertToText()
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="E:EXCELTEST.txt", FileFormat:=xlCurrentPlatformText, CreateBackup:=False
End Sub

Can I change the default delimition to pipe, how can I do this? How can I make an excel file to pipe delimited text file in default?

Saving A Worksheet As A Asterisk Delimited Text File?

Sep 19, 2013

I am trying to save a worksheet as a txt file. The worksheet has a range of data with a variable amount of rows in column A only. It generally will look like:

A*B*C
A*B*C*D*E*F*G*H*I*J
A*B*C*D*E*F*G*H*I*J
A*B*C*D*E*F*G*H*I*J

where each row of data is in a single cell.Whenever I save it, however, it adds extra tab deliminations in each row after the data, and it adds rows with no data (sometimes just 1, sometimes many).

I am positive that no cells in columns B-n have data in them (even just a space) and no rows after the last intended have data.

Why are these extra rows and columns being inserted? How can I save a txt file that literally has no other spaces or rows or deliminations other than what's intended?

Importing Text File (excel Treat Row Of Text As Number)

Dec 1, 2007

I created a vb macro to open a text file then process the file then close the file. Here is my problem:

Problem: THe text file has rows of data in it as follows

5155111111551511111111111511111111111111111

This row of text gets converted to

5.16E+42

because excel treats the row of text as a number but i dont want it to do this transition.

When i save the file and then reopen it using say NOTEPAD i see 5.16E+42 and not the long string of text.

Importing Text File

Jul 7, 2006

importing a text file. 3 times per day, I pull a report off a website and save it as a txt file. Typically, the data consists of approx 2000 customer ID's, and their respective data. When I import the data into Excel, it uses 2 or 3 rows to list information for each customer ID. I need a to seperate out only the customers ID which are 9 numbers long (no text in the ID), their SS #'s, and are listed as "FUL Request" or "PTR Request".

Since the data takes up 2 or 3 rows, the "Text to Column" feature does not work.

So the VBA should be able to look at each row, and if it has a 9 number customer ID in the row directly above it, and meets all other criteria, them post the customer ID number, the SS# and the verbiage "FUL Request" or "PTR Request" onto a seperate sheet.

Or the VBA can simply delete the rows that don't meet the criteria listed above.

Importing Text File With VBA

Oct 3, 2006

I am using Chip Pearson's method of importing a text file into Excel (found at http://www.cpearson.com/excel/imptext.htm )

It works great except for one aspect. Two of my columns of data are in the format "dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss", which is very necessary.

I have set the worksheet, the file is being imported into, to the same format. My problem is that, during the import of data, Excel (in it's wisdom) decides to automatically transpose the dd and mm numbers (if they meet the natural calendar conditions i.e. 01/09/2006 becomes 09/01/2006, 09/01/2006 becomes 01/09/2006 whilst 21/09/2006 remains the same).

As you can imagine this causes havok with several other functions that I have running off that source data (once imported). I have looked at the code and, whilst I can follow the general gist of it, I am unable to find any reference to format of the data.

Importing Text File With Formatting

Jun 2, 2009

I have a program in unix that ouputs a text file in .csv form which allows me to import my data into an excel spreadsheet very easily. I am wondering if there is anyway I can add formatting, like to tell excel to make a cell green or something like that.

If it can't be done with .csv, is there any other tool or format available that will accomplish this?

Importing A Partial Text File

Oct 30, 2008

I have VBA code that imports a text file using a fixed width separator within the code. The code is working just as I need it to work and placing the information/data in the columns that I have specified in the code.

The issue I have is I only want to import certain data that is contained within the text file. It is going to be a little hard to explain, so I have attached a sample of the text file with dummy data to better explain. The file is broken up into different segments. Each segment is identified by a “Base Number” in column A of the text file (once it has been converted into an Excel file).

For my example, I only want to import data for Base Number 38451. The information for this segment is easy enough to identify when the data starts and when the data ends. As in this example, the first occurrence of 38451 begins at row 257. Once the first instance of this number is identified, the first row of data that I require is always two rows after.

I think the coding should go something like this, but I just can’t figure out how to put it into my
If cell in column A = 38451 then
- start importing from 2 rows down
- continue to import until next row in column C is not = date

If row in column C = blank then
- search in column A until cell = 38451

If cell in column A = 38451 then
- start importing from 1 row down
- continue to import until next row in column C is not = date

Else
- stop import

I have included two files. (1) the text file with the data (2) the Excel file. There are two tabs in the Excel file “ReconSheet” (contains the data that is imported from the text file) and “Desired Result” (this is how I want the end product to look).

Importing Text File With Complex Structure?

Dec 15, 2011

I run reports that tell me when an individual is supposed to be in the office and when they actually log in, but this is a manual process where I have to go through several hundred people each morning and check. I have created a macro that pulls in their time in and out and makes there name appear as Last, First.

I run a seperate report that creates a schedule with headers and other information that is useless in this process. I have attached a dummy file and get this down to the last, first name and then the times in and such with no headers? I am also trying to keep the total number of people at the bottom in it's own cell.

I am at a loss as the file uses multiple spaces and not ,'s or ;'s etc.

FILE:

From: 12/14/11 Data TotalView 12/14/11
To: 12/14/11 Company ABC 13:45
Daily Start/Stop Unit Name RED

Retain Format Importing Text File

Jun 6, 2007

I am having problems choosing a format for the column in my spreadsheet that contains my account codes. This is especially a problem when the code starts with an '=' sign and is followed by a number or has a '£' sign followed by a number.

I receive the file in a .txt format which I guess if I get it that way I would not have a problem but as I need to work on the file in excel before uploading it I experience problems. For instance when I open the file the codes that begin with '=' + a letter for instance =Y just comes up as '# name?' and only when I click in the cell can I see that it is =Y. Also the code '=1' just comes up as '1' as does '£1' - now this causes problems as for a start I need to do Vlookups on the account code but now instead of three distinct codes I have 3 1's.

The only way that I have discovered how to solve this is to click into each cell and add a ' before the text. (this changes the format to text - right??) But obviously this is very time consuming - is their a quicker way to change these cells. I can't just right click and format cells - text. This does not work?

Skip Column When Importing Text File

Sep 22, 2007

This question is mostly academic, but I do hope someone out there has an answer. I am using code to open a text file. Since the first column is always blank, I would like to start the import at column 2. I think this can be accomplished with the following

Workbooks.OpenText Filename:=sFileName, Origin:=437, StartRow:=1, DataType:=xlDelimited, _
FieldInfo:= Array(Array(1, 9))

However, according to VB help file,

If you specify that a column is to be skipped, you must explicitly state the type for all remaining columns or the data will not parse correctly.

I haven't seen any problems, but I hate to use code that isn't supposed to work, even if it does. Does anyone know what problems could be caused by not explicitly stating the type for the remaining columns? Question 2: (I know, one per thread, but they are very much related. I will move to new thread if need be). If I don't know the number of columns, how can I explicitly state their type? For example, if I knew I had 4 columns, I would use:

Workbooks.OpenText Filename:=sFileName, Origin:=437, StartRow:=1, DataType:=xlDelimited, _
FieldInfo:=Array(Array(1, 9), Array(2, 1), Array(3, 1), Array(4, 1))

What do I use for a variable number of columns?

The default type of 1 (xlGeneralFormat) is fine for all of my columns.

Importing Text File Displays As A Single Row And Not Table

Dec 1, 2012

This is the text file: Video.txt. I import it using the following settings: "Delimited" as Original data type and "Comma" as Delimiters, with all the other settings left to default. Everything is imported into a single row. It is supposed to be a table, with Stk_No, Title, Certificate, up to In_Stk as column titles; then, all the rest should come below the column titles as rows (they seem to be separated by 5 commas). Am I missing a setting or there is a problem with the text file?

to correct it i have tried this

ActiveSheet.Range("C4").Value = " & Sheets("PRODUCTS").Range("Y1").Value & "

Maintain Sort Order Importing Text File

Sep 19, 2007

I am trying to create a Karaoke Song List in excel, which would show four columns on each page with Artist, Track, Artist, Track. I am importing a text file to do this. The problem I have is that I can import the file so that it puts Artist and Track going down, however, it would then need to go back to the top of the page to fill in the right hand side of the current page. Is there any code that retrieves the current print page number of the current cell (so that I can initiate the code to go to the top right of the current page and continue importing)? Or is there a better way of doing this?

Keep/Retain Leading Zeros When Importing Text File

Jun 5, 2008

i cant do this from importing the data, so instead i have to try and fix it with code. I get a sheet of data from an external source that removes the 0's in the front of the number. Its only a 4 digit number so 21 would be 0021. Now i have been able to trap the data i think i would need. i created a =len() statement to tell me how many numbers each cell has. here is the code i think how it would work.. i just need a little help with filling in the blanks. I would assume its something to the lines of " 00+string value if it was 2 numbers needed.

B2 has the Len values (4,3,2,1 etc) and A1 is the original string that has the values.
So i want the code to add 1 2 or 3 zeros to the front of the number based on the len value.

Range("B2").Select
While ActiveCell.Value <> ""
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 0).Select
Select Case ActiveCell.Value
Case Is = "3"
ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0).Select
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 1).Select
Case Is = "2"
ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0).Select
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 1).Select......................

Selecting And Then Importing Data From Huge Tab Text File To Excel

I wanted to see if there is a VBA code to do the following :

b) Import the Selected Data to Excel

I have the vba code where I can open the tab text delimited file in excel, use a selection criteria and then copy the data into excel. But I am having problems with the case where the Tab Text Delimited file exceeds the row limit that excel currently has and wanted to see if the data import can be done without opening the text file into excel at all.

Here is my current query :

Sub TEST()
' TEST Macro

Workbooks.OpenText Filename:="E:Testdata.txt"
ActiveSheet.Range("$A$1:$B$1048576").AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="1234"
