Insert Text To One File - Remove Text From Equivalent Column In Another File?

Aug 13, 2013

Got a slight problem; I am making a "worker-plan", where you should be able to write a name on one file and have it updated (removed) from the equivalent columns on another file automatically. Here's an example with two separate projects:

Project 1 before and after changes:
Attachment 257366
Attachment 257367

Project 2 before and after changes:
Attachment 257368
Attachment 257369

You can see here how I intended it to work. When one worker is moved from Project 1 to Project 2, that worker should also be removed from those weeks in Project 1. The previous worker from Project 2 should also be removed from those weeks (in Project 2).

Are there any formulas that can make this work automatically? All week numbers will belong to the same columns in all files.

Edit: There are 30 files that should be syncronized, not just two.. I could also gather all files into one file with sheets, instead of having seperate files.

Looping, Open Text File, Copy Text, Close Text File

Sep 18, 2009

I have an existing spreadsheet with a column of strings (actually VIN numbers). These numbers correllate to a bunch of text files, that can exist in one of three folders (UsernameDesktop1, 2, or 3) on my desktop. What I need the macro to do is:

1) get the filename from A2 (A1 is a heading row)
2) Find the appropriate text file in one of the three folders
3) Put the folder name into I2
4) Scan the text file for some strings, and copy some data that follows those strings into J2:O2 (I can handle programming this)
5) Close the text file
6) repeat above for the remainder of filenames (about 1800 files)

Convert Each Column Of An Workbook File To New Text File

May 30, 2007

I want macro which export each excel column to new text file. The data in excel file is number. The column has only 5 rows that means each new text file should contain five lines of one column. It looks simple but couldn't manage to do macro for it. I have very big data set in one excel file, and have to be splitted into text files. The file name in new text files can be any kind as long as it can be in some sort of order for each export.

Remove First And Last Character From Text File

Dec 13, 2008

I'm trying to write to text file a HTML page that is in string variable sFullPage.

So far my code is like this:

Sub wrtHTML()
Dim sFName As String ' Path and name of text file
Dim iFNumber As Integer ' File Number

sFName = "c: est.html"

'Get an unused file number
iFNumber = FreeFile

'Create new file or overwrite existing file
Open sFName For Output As #iFNumber

'Write data to file....

How do I remove those first and last two marks (a double quote on each side + square mark from the end)? Do I use somehow wrong data types or wrong printing methods?

I need to clean out unnecessary data from a file, (see attached text file), I'm not sure how to go about this in excel. basically every file starts with 9 cells that needs to be deleted, two cells of real data then one with garbage that needs to be deleted, it goes like that for 40 cells, then again 10 cells of garbage that needs to be deleted, then 40 of real data and goes like that up to 3000 lines, I know it sounds confusing but if you take a look at attached file, at the end I need to have

Read/Import Text File & Remove All Chr()

Feb 1, 2008

I have a comma delineated text file that is full of stock item details such as stock code, description, 3 different prices etc it is about 15 fields wide by about 400 rows down. I need to be able to import all rows but only certain columns into an excel worksheet using vba. I know I can easily just rename it to .xls or .csv or something like that but its a text file we export out of our system at work and we need to be able to give it to customers who then can import into this excel spreadsheet/calculator I am creating.

The file looks something like this:

"String 1", ""String 2", "String 3", "String 4", ...... all the way up to 15

There is 400 or so rows (which represent stock items)

Now I need to copy all rows in column 1 (string 1) all rows in column 12, 13, 14, 15 (This is the only data I need from the text file in this particular spreadsheet/calculator)

I have it working fine reading the entire row in one at a time splitting it up into a string array using the Split() function and then only copies the certain array indexes i need into the worksheet here is the code for this: ...

Text File Import With Text To Columns Splitting Same Text Differently

Nov 21, 2007

I have a macro which imports data from a mainframe dump text file and performs 'Text to Columns' on the imported data so that formula in the spreadsheet can act on the data. The code works perfectly well when I use it, but if a different user logs on and performs exactly the same mainframe dump and import macro the Text to Columns action splits the raw data in a different way and the result is that the split renders the formulae useless.

I've experimented a little and for some reason it appears that the 'Field Info' parameters which are produced when the Text to Columns function is recorded in a macro differ between users even though the raw data is exactly the same.

FieldInfo:= _
Array(Array(0, 1), Array(18, 1), Array(35, 1), Array(56, 1), Array(70, 1), Array(88, 1), _
Array(102, 1))

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.

Exporting One Column To Text File

Aug 15, 2008

I've created a spreadsheet to create a text file which I can use to inport values into another device. Using CONCATENATE etc I end up with a range of cells (1 column / Many rows) that I can then MANUALLY highlight, choose copy, open the text file, paste in the contents and then save it. This works fine but as you can imagine I'd like to automate the proceedure by having excel create and save the text file for me.

From what I've seen on these forums most people are wanting CSV type files but not me. I've already got the cell contents pieced together it just needs writing to a text file, no delimiters, no quote marks, just exactly what's in the one cell on one line, it's just one column remember (H2:H1456).

I'm not bothered about appending data either, a hard coded overwrite of the text file is fine by me.

The actual file type I ultimately need is an .abk file, but like I say this is just a basic text file that's been renamed. Could Excel create this or must it have the .txt file extension?

Saving Multiple Workbooks At One Time/file As A Text File

Mar 16, 2007

found the following code which works for 1 workbook at a time. I am trying to save 7 workbooks at 1 time. Is it possible?

Sub SaveAsCell()
Dim strName As String

On Error Goto InvalidName
strName = Sheet1. Range("V77")
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs strName

It will work on the first sheet but none after that. I need to have each workbook saved with the value in cell V77. Also if that is possible, is it possible to change where the file is saved as well?

Right now I have a master workbook that will open the 7 other workbooks, paste data onto several pages in each workbook. I would like the macro to save the workbooks. The workbooks are named: 02 Tuesday, 03 Wednesday, 04 Thursday, 05 Friday, 06 Saturday, 07 Sunday, 08 Monday.

Using Excel 2010

The problem is that all extensions are variable in a pattern such as .078, .051, etc.

In this instance, the extensions are numeric, but I'm trying to figure out a way to handle that is all encompassing to include *.txt, *.tsv, *.csv, *.prn, etc......

How can I handle these efficiently?

Save File As Text Using Cells For Path & File Name

Dec 20, 2009

How to save a file, with file- name. but the directory is to be read in worksheet "towns" in Cell1 (brussels) and filename in worksheet "names" in cell B2 (i.e. winter), so it saves to c:russelswinter.txt as a wordpad or kladblok txt file, that keeps a number, so each time we push a button "go back from worksheet names to worksheet towns" the "number" that is saved in the txt document goes up by value +1. In Flemisch, the "old" code goes as follows, and saves the number in the txt file Factuurnummer7.txt. But I want that the file name (here: FactuurNummer7) can be a variable text issue, which has to be read - as already noticed - in cell B2 (with the word WINTER). So the are 2 worksheets: towns, ans names

pad$ = Application.DefaultFilePath
'controle = Dir(pad$ + "FactuurNummer7.txt")
'If controle = "" Then GoTo EerstAanmaken
'Open pad$ + "Factuurnummer7.txt" For Input As #10
'Input #10, Nummer1
'Close #10......................

Open Text File From File Manager Vs. Within Workbook

Oct 2, 2006

I've encountered a bit of an odd one. I am opening a tab delimited file, which has been sved as an xls. When I open from file manager, it opens correctly. When I open from Excel, I have to go through 3 screen dictating how the data is set up, and the end result is that a couple of the numbers come through as text, rather than numbers.

Failing an explanation - how do you open workbooks as file system objects - currently I am opening them using

Workbooks.Open Filename:=wb.Path & "/" & ws. Range("B1").Value

If I open them by mimicking the FM, perhaps it will work OK.

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.

Search Cell Value In A Column From Text File

Jun 18, 2008

I tried to search the forum first and but i cant find ways to combine everything i wanted to achieve. That's why i'm posting this to consolidate all those...Sample files are attached for better understanding. I have an excel file (sample.xls) which has cell values in column A. These values will then be used to find a match in each of the text files (in this example, sample 1.txt & sample 2.txt) present in the same folder with my excel workbook. I need a macro to perform the scenarios below.

1. Say, the excel file contains a list of cell values in column A.
2. Temporarily open the first text file (sample 1.txt) as an excel workbook.
3. Search each cell value in column A for a match in the first text file.
a. If that certain cell finds a match, no matter how many it may find, that cell will be formatted with "BOLD" format.
b. If not, that cell will be formatted with GRAY text color.
4. After all the cells have been used, the first text file will be closed and the next text file (sample 2.txt) will be opened temporarily.
5. Repeat steps 3 & 4, except that, when the cell value has "BOLD" format already, it will be skipped and proceed to the next cell. That is, the grayed ones can be turned back to black color and will be formatted to "BOLD" format if a match has been found in the 2nd text file.
6. If there are other text files present within the folder, do steps 2 to 5, until all the text files are searched.

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.

Search Word For Text And Send Values Next To Text To Excel File

Apr 30, 2009

I am using Windows XP and Office 2003.

I am looking to automate a process where information is sent to someone in a text format and they in turn transfer that data to an excel file. It basically looks like this (but includes a lot more info):

Service Request #: 123456
Instrument Type: New Instrument
Lot/Serial #: 123456
SR Type: Product Complaint
Service Coverage: Maintenance Agreement

The info on the left (text preceding the colon) is always the same but the values following the colon can change. The excel file has all of the text before the colon and they just enter the information into the cells. I am looking to make it so that an Excel macro (or maybe a word/outlook macro) automatically scans the text document and sends this info to the exact same cells in excel every time.

The text file is actually a message from an Oracle database and I am not going to be able to make any changes to the way the data comes in.
