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

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.

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:

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?

Need Macro To Create Formulas And Split (Comma Delimited) Cells Into Rows

Mar 30, 2013

Example: Column A has a mixture of letters and numbers. ie AU1234 or AU5678 Always the letters will be first, but not sure if 2 or 3 letters. Need to insert space between letters and numbers.

I have so far. " =(left(a2,2)) & " " & (mid(a2,3,(len(a2)-2))) " this works if all are only 2 letters...

Now. What I need to do is open a .csv (will do manually) then hit something like ctrl-alt-k to run macro.

Step 1: Insert a column next to A, check rows down and for however many rows, make above formula (include 2 or 3 letters) to insert space between letters and numbers, select the new column, copy, select column a and overwrite with the values from the new column. ie turn 'A2' from "AU1234" to "AU 1234" and 'A3' from "AU4567" to "AU 4567" .

Step 2: Column D has comma delimited fields. Column F also has comma delimited fields. both D and F will always have the same number of fields. D will be something like 1234,2345,3456 ------ in this case 3 fields but could be over 100 fields
F will be something like M0002456 (04P), M0002457 (05P), M1230477 (02A).

Need to split both D and G from row A2 simultaneously from comma fields to rows. copying all other data from row. and insert before the next set of data in what was previously A3 and (in this case *should* be moved down to A5 because of the 2 inserted lines from the 2 extra fields).

E.g.: Column A Row 2 "AU 1234" Column B Row 2 "data1" Column C Row 2 "data2" Column D Row2 "1234" Column E Row 2 "data3" Column F Row 2 "M0002456 (04P)"
Column A Row 3 "AU 1234" Column B Row 3 "data1" Column C Row 3 "data2" Column D Row 3 "2345" Column E Row 3 "data3" Column F Row 3 "M0002457 (05P)"
Column A Row 4 "AU 1234" Column B Row 4 "data1" Column C Row 4 "data2" Column D Row 4 "3456" Column E Row 4 "data3" Column F Row 4 "M1230477 (02A)"

Then carry on to next row which may have only one field and can be ignored/skipped to the next which may have 100 fields which will need to be split to rows and inserted...etc....

Step 3
Remove all the "space Bracket-data-Bracket" ie " (04P) from column F

Save AS Tab Delimited File For SAP

Feb 4, 2008

I'm trying to create a excel sheet with macros that will generate a tab delimitd file which is a journal voucher and I want to upload that .txt file to our financial system (SAP). When I create a tab delimited file manually, that is I enter all the values in excel and save as .txt it works great. But I have created a spreadsheet where the useres (all employees on the financial departement) enter the info required. I have a macro validating that all fields are correct and so on.. When they are finished they sedt the spreadsheet to me (an excelfile) via email, this is done by a submit buttom(macro) and the I have a hidden sheet in the worksheet which gets all the values that are necessery and then I create my tab delimited file using the well known save as fileformat=xltext macro. But SAP will not accept this file. I get error messages as convertion erros in line 4 column 6 and so on. The sheet which is saved as .txt is 100% with formulas, it gets all the value from another sheet(sheet1). I use the formula =IF(Sheet1!$E17=0;"";Sheet1!E17) in the cells with E17 changing to whatever cell is required. What can be wrong here? May it be that all the formulas (columns A to H and row 2 to 1001) somehow mix it all up and even to the cell is empty is the formula is somehow hidden in the .txt file and that messes it all up??

Save As Text With Unicode And Tab Delimited

Oct 11, 2008

In my excel file I have chinese and some other special characters and many cells have text with commas.

My problem starts when I try to save my file as a Text.

When I Save As with the Unicode option I can see the chinese characters in my text file but also I see a lot of quotes """ because I have commas in my xls file.

When I Save As with Tab Delimited option to solve the comma problem, the chinese characters become?

It seems that cannot be possible to do it manually cause there is no option to Save As with Unicode and Tab option together.

So I would deeply appreciate someone could give me a solution with VBA code to save my file as Text with Unicode and Tab Delimited option.

Save As Macro :: Tab Delimited Files

Oct 22, 2009

I use a macro that saves my activesheets in text(tab delimited).

I am trying to find how to save my worksheets as tab delimited files without having to open the notepad later, in order to press the backspace button. Just to clarify more, if a sheet has 15 rows of data, the tab delimited file will be created with 16. Is there a way to save the actual number of rows in the text file or this is a default operation in excel that cannot be changed in any way?

VBA Open All Text Files In Excel In Folder And Save Them As Excel File

Dec 7, 2013

I have some daily text files in a folder (so about 30 of them each month), which in the end of month, I need to open them up in excel, format them so that I can use the information for my analysis.

I would like to create a macro, to quickly open them all up at once and save them each individually in .xls or .xlsm format.

I am new to VBA and after some research online, I was able to have the files open with the following code. but now I don't know how to proceed further to save them one by one with the same name but in .xls or .xlsm format.

Sub Opentxtfiles()
Dim MyFolder As String
Dim myfile As String

Save Excel Sheet As PDF File ()

Mar 15, 2006

I've been working on this problem on and off for a number of months now and have just about got it sussed so thought I'd share it with you as it has mostly been down to postings on this board that I've got it in the end.

Thanks especially to 'biggoan' for his post:

Anyway, this seems to avoid the need for a class module but does need you to install the Acrobat Distiller object references in Tools...References in the VBA editor.

You also need to go into the printer properties of the your Adobe PDF 'Printer' and under Printing Preferences...Adobe PDF Settings deselect the Do not send fonts to "Adobe PDF" option. Why, who knows!

Private Sub Create_PDF()
'Created by Dom Hill with considerable asistance from Biggoan and Mr Excel

Dim tempPDFFileName As String
Dim tempPSFileName As String
Dim tempPDFRawFileName As String
Dim tempLogFileName As String

Sheets("Sales Data").Activate

tempPDFRawFileName = "C:" & Range("A1").Value

'Define the postscript and .pdf file names.

tempPSFileName = tempPDFRawFileName & ".ps"
tempPDFFileName = tempPDFRawFileName & ".pdf"
tempLogFileName = tempPDFRawFileName & ".log"

' Print the Excel range to the postscript file

ActiveSheet.PrintOut Copies:=1, preview:=False, ActivePrinter:="Adobe PDF", printtofile:=True, Collate:=True, prtofilename:=tempPSFileName

'Create PDF File

Dim myPDFDist As New PdfDistiller
myPDFDist.FileToPDF tempPSFileName, tempPDFFileName, tempShowWindow

'Delete PS File
Kill tempPSFileName
Kill tempLogFileName
End Sub

Not sure why the macro creates a log file but if you know more about VBA then you probably would.

Save Each Sheet As A Text File With Incrementing Names

Apr 21, 2008

Want to do something *almost* exactly like a previous post but that post is now closed. Extract Each Sheet To Text File & Save as Sheet Name .txt` I want to extract data from individual worksheets from a workbook in excel to individual text files with the **same name as the original excel file** plus incrementing suffix.

Example: File_Name.xls with worksheets: Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3
==> Result...... File_Name_01.txt, File_Name_02.txt, File_Name_03.txt

don't delete - this is not a duplicate post. Previous code 1) creates text files with "sheet name" as was the original post's intent (not "file name") and 2) it does not iterate through each sheet (only processes Sheet1 regardless of selected sheet in the workbook)

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.

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.

Search Comma Delimited String

Dec 1, 2009

I have a spreadsheet with a number of columns containing comma delimited strings (years) which I need to check cell by cell and return false if anything apart from the years 2001 to 2008 is found.

For instance, a cell may contain the years (2001, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008) or (2006, 2007) or (2001, 2004, 2008) or (2004) or any combination of those 8 years.

I thought of using the Split function on each cell and then looping through the resultant array to do a comparison against each of the 8 years but with a large number of delimited strings to check it could be a bit time consuming. Any idea how I could accomplish this more quickly and efficiently either with a formula or VBA?

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).

Splitting Comma Delimited Numbers Into New Columns

Apr 20, 2009

I am using excel at the moment with a card playing program. using the excel sheet they provided the details of what cards are dealt are exported to the worksheet and there is a simple table like so

Player Cards
Player 1/ 24, 27, 16
Player2/ 1, 5

The information is fed through one number at a time as the cards are dealt for a total of three rounds sometimes it is only two rounds and are delimited by a comma all in the same column. I would like if possible to have these numbers appear in separate columns. that is

Card 1 / Cards 2 / Card 3
Player 1
Player 2

IS this possible. briefly i want this to happen so I can use the Vlookup function as the numbers that come through each stand for a card value but using Vlookup only the first number works and the following return an NA value as it is impossible as far as I know to have every possible combination represented in a table . If there is a way of tweaking Vlookup so it recognises the comma delimiter and in the vlookup column it will show all converted numbers then i'm all ears otherwise any help on how to split would be much appreciated. Quickly I did try using the text to columns function when i did this however in the new destination it showed only the first number and discontinued showing the others in the original as well. Additionally in this function the 'preview of selected data' does not show selected data but some sort of link =programme_name_card_gamecard_1 somethig like that. Sorry for the long one.

Open All Txt Files (delimited Tab Comma ) In A Folder

Aug 11, 2009

I have around 30 files each quarter which I need to convert from a text file to an excel spreadsheet. I am a beginner with VBA and am looking for generic code I can use for a macro to:

1. open a text file from a folder
2. delimited/tab/comma
3. format columns H, O, and AH into dates
4. 'leave a spot for me to insert my code to manipulate the data'
5. save the file as an excel spreadsheet to a folder with the same filename
6. loop to perform this task to all files in a folder and stop after the last file.

The dilemna I am having is that my text files do not have a suffix ".txt" after them.

They just have the file name ***MMDDYYYY. There are always 3 initials at the beginning which change for each file i.e. ABC06302009.

The date remains the same for the given quarter, i.e. ***06302009. Next quarter I will have to do this same thing for all files ***09302009.
