Automated Import Of User Chosen File

Sep 23, 2009

I am trying to do an automated import, the file I'm importing comes out of an application and in its properties just shows "file" so I can't use the standard text file methods. I originally recorded a macro for the automation and have tried to amend it.

I think it is falling over in the Destination stage, or maybe I need something instead of where the ". Name =" would normally go?

Private Sub All Files()
Dim sFilename

sFilename = Application _
. GetOpenFilename("All Files (*.*), *.*")
If sFilename <> False Then
Sheets("Sheet2").Select
With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:=sFilename _
, Destination:=Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A4"))
'.Name = "All Files"
.FieldNames = True
.RowNumbers = False
.FillAdjacentFormulas = False
.PreserveFormatting = True

Speed Up A Macro (text File Import)

Jan 13, 2010

Attached is a workbook that takes an imported text file, inserts rows with text.

It is SLOW, you can watch each line being inserted with the text, I would think with such a small sample dataset it would be much much quicker.

Information: See attached xls file.

On sheet1 is the imported data, sheet2 is a copy of the imported data so one can copy and paste to sheet1 as needed with out re-importing for test purposes and only for this query. (Sheets2 thru 3 are not used otherwise).

There is a command button on sheet one which will run macro "aaa". If you run this you will see how slow it is and exactly what it is doing.

I am simply looking for a way to speed this up, I have some files that are 10 times the size of the sample data and they take 10 or more minutes to run.

Macro To Import Data From Text File

Jun 11, 2014

I've never actually had a reason or need to use macros for data import or manipulation. At the moment I'm trying to work on a modeling problem which will output the data in the form of a large text file. The data is divided up using 1000 energy bins, and 1000 timing bins for each tally (unique set of output data) like in this file [URL].....Unfortunately because of the applications for the data I can't reduce the number of bins, and the software being used for the modeling will not provide a more convenient form for the output file.

How to create a macro that can extract this data from the output file and import it into a designated excel spreadsheet. It would be preferable to import each set of tally data from the initial output file into it's own spreadsheet, but as I said I have no experience using macros and I'm not even sure where to begin in making something that would work. or even a basic source for examples

VBA - How To Import Selected Text File To Temporary Worksheet Using Macro

Aug 5, 2013

Below is the code I currently use to do the following which creates service reports.

When you click on the command button you can choose any XML file you want to import. This file is copied to a temporary worksheet where i selectively choose cells to populate textbox's which later populate my reports. What I want to do is the same exact thing but with a text file. Not all text files are the same length so it needs to be able to have a range. Here's my working code.

For Each SheetName In Array("Maintenance Data Sheet")
With Sheets(SheetName)
.Range("B127") = ""
.Range("U127") = ""
.Range("AJ127") = ""
.Range("AV127") = ""
.Range("AY124") = ""

[Code]...

Cancel:

MsgBox "No XML Selected"
End Sub

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.

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))

I am trying to import a range from a txt file that is not opened. It would be in cell AM2 if opened in excel, or it would be the 38th tab of the 2nd row.

I have it working by opening the file copying the cell and pasting into the destination cell. but I have this looped for each text file in a folder. this takes a very long time.

How can this be done faster? I have been trying to figure out how to use For input as ... but haven't been able to grasp how to manipulate the code.

Parse And Import Text File

Jan 29, 2007

I have a software application that imports audio files and writes information about these files to text files. I'm trying to write and Excel/VBA application that will parse and import the data contained in these files. find a sample of one of these files attached. The big hurdle I am facing is I cannot figure out how to parse this file - the delimiter keeps changing as throughout the file (see example below):

otrk ┤ptrk Č
otrk ╬ptrk Ă
otrk ďptrk ╠
otrk Ôptrk ┌
otrk *ptrk "
otrk ěptrk đ
otrk ■ptrk ÷
otrk ┤ptrk Č
otrk ptrk
otrk đptrk ╚
otrk Ůptrk Í
otrk ■ptrk ÷
otrk ptrk
otrk ţptrk Š

Automate Text File Import

Jun 21, 2007

I found this question from 2004 but it has expired so I could not quote or reply to it. It can be found at Open file search and import text file This was the question:

I'm looking for some code that i can attach to a command bar which allows the user to browse and search for any text file on their C:Drive and then import it. I think i can work out the import using the data import wizard and macro recorder.

Sub DoIt()
Application.Dialogs(xlDialogImportTextFile).Show
End Sub

The original person said they can work out the import using the wizard, but my users are not tech savvy and therefore I was wondering if I could automate the text file showing up in the excel sheet ( named 'Import') after selecting the text file (instead of going to the wizard). I have attached a sample text file for an example (first row being a header)

Latest Text File For Import

I'm trying to automate an Excel macro. I need a way to select the latest .txt file from the Import Data dialog box.

I currently have a "CHDIR" at the beginning of the macro that sets the active directory. When I make the "Import Data" pick I am in the proper place. Now if I can only sort the list of .TXT files by date, select the first file in the list and hit ok to continue I'd be off and running.

Import Specific Cells From A User Chosen Spreadsheet

Nov 24, 2009

I need to import some spreadsheets that are sent to me into a master database spreadsheet. I have attached both below. The complaintstest.xls is the master database and the other is the sheet that will be imported. What I would like to happen is when the macro is run, the user will be able to select the sheet they would like to import through a dialog box. After the sheet is selected the macro will import the cells from the selected sheet into the master database in a particular order. In the master database example on row 2 I have listed the columns from the sheet to be imported in the corresponding column on the database sheet. This will macro will be run a couple of times a week so the macro will have to find the next empty row to start the import on.

Import Text File With 2 Rows Per Record Into 1 Row

Jan 10, 2013

I have a text file that contains two rows of data for a single record. when I open the file up in excel, it puts each row into column A. What I need to do is put the 2nd row and combine it with the data in the first row so that i can then run the text to columns wizard and put all the data into its own column.

Here is an example of the data:

TEWAC Dresser Rand SAB 21120-14 1350 1687 3300 80 .80 50 4 2.63 EE-7592 1 2250 46 30.5 14 6
10 12 1 4 .229 .102 2 2 .0303175V/1 HL2 .13 .50 .25 1.5 394 3.000
IP23 Andalas SAB 21000-28.5 1500 1875 415 80 .80 50 4 4.22 EE-7777 80/50 Rise 1 2250 43 30.5 28.5 10
2 13 4 8 .258 .102 0 0 3175V 2 .11 .46 .25 1.5 1.500
CACA Intergen CACA 21120-33 1720 2150 6600 70 .80 50 4 4.56 R971055 50C Amb EE-7467 1 46 30.5 33 14
8 14 1 2 .229 .144 2 2 .0303175V/1 HL2 .20 .65 .30 2.0 697 2.150

What it should look like is the following:

TEWAC Dresser Rand SAB 21120-14 1350 1687 3300 80 .80 50 4 2.63 EE-7592 1 2250 46 30.5 14 6 10 12 1 4 .229 .102 2 2 .0303175V/1 HL2 .13 .50 .25 1.5 394 3.000
IP23 Andalas SAB 21000-28.5 1500 1875 415 80 .80 50 4 4.22 EE-7777 80/50 Rise 1 2250 43 30.5 28.5 10 2 13 4 8 .258 .102 0 0 3175V 2 .11 .46 .25 1.5 1.500

leaving me with 3 rows and one column of data.

I have multiple files with about 600 rows in each that I need to process.
