Macro To Access/edit/save A Text File

Apr 21, 2008

I have an xl doc in which one of the sheet's column A changes value every 1 hour...

What I would like to know is.. if there is a method in which i can copy these values from column A to a text file every hour...

The range of cells containing values in Column A also varies every hour.

Also, the old values in the text file needs to get deleted before the new values are updated every hour.

Macro To Edit Text File

Dec 7, 2007

I was wondering if it was possible for a macro to edit a file by opening each .txt file, searching for the word "Reference", and then replace it with the word "Ref". Then save and close the text file.

There are no delimiters in the text files.

Macro To Save Worksheet As Text File Without Blanks

Jan 27, 2009

find attached an example of the spreadsheet I am working with. Please bear in mind that this is a much simplified version of the version I am currently working on (which needs to have 1000 lines). What I am trying to achieve is allow my team to enter rows of data into the spreadsheet in a format that they will be familiar with - then hit the button on the sheet which will then take a copy of the second sheet (which looks up against the first) and spit it out in a .txt file ready to be uploaded into our computer system.

The main priority that I need to fix is that when the .txt file is opened in notepad it contains a huge amount of blank data rows at the bottom - I assume that it is taking accross all 65536 lines into the .txt where I only want the rows that have data in them in the .txt. At present our computer system will not accept the .txt due to all the blank rows (its limit is 1000 lines).

Macro To Pull Text File- Format And Save

Jun 29, 2007

What I am looking to do is create a Dos.bat file to be run in the middle of the night that opens Excel. From there I will need Excel to open a .txt file from a specific folder, format the file, then re-save as an .xls file.

Each of the .txt files in the specific folder is named like the following:
BCKLOG_062807
BCKLOG_062707

and a new file is being generated to the folder each night (with the new date in the filename).

Is there a way I can use the macro to loop through only the new files being placed in the folder, since the old files will already have their .xls counterpart saved ???

If this is not a clear enough description, please let me know and I will attempt to explain better.

Open, Edit, Save Macro - Various Files

May 22, 2006

i've got the code below, and if you notice the directory and file line, I want a loop that'll do what the macro below does, but also for files j1k2-j1k200. I'm hoping there's a macro that'll be able to do this, as I don't want to have to copy, paste and edit the same macro below 200 times!

Application. ScreenUpdating = False ' turn off the screen updating
Set wb = Workbooks.Open("C:Uni StuffStocks_J20j1ka.xls", False, False)
Sheets("Sheet1").Select
Range("B6:S6").Select
Selection.Replace What:="]w1", Replacement:="]w2", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
ReplaceFormat:=False
wb.Close True ' close the source workbook saving any changes
Set wb = Nothing ' free memory
Application.ScreenUpdating = True ' turn on the screen updating

i = 0
Do While Not EOF(1)

If Mid(z, 1, 1) = "H" Then
i = i - 1

ElseIf Mid(z, 1, 1) = "S" Then.................................

the problem is that the new file is generated but it is always empty

Format Text File For Excel To Import Into Access

Jan 12, 2010

I have a large text file that is generated daily and want to import into MS Access as the end result.

First I need to reformat into the row format in excel rather than the format it is in. The issue is not all the segments are the same number of lines or they may have mutli message lines. The names with colon : after them I want to be field names in the table which I wish the text file to import into. Please, I am looking for assistance with this.

I have attached sample data of the text dump, and the name of the file is as you see but different date on the end. At the very end of the text file you will see the desired output which I will then import into Access

Also every new message begins with the dotted line and the date and time at the end.

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

VBA - Check Existence Then Edit / Add Access Record

Feb 9, 2012

I am trying to check for the existence of a record in an access table and do one of the following:

1. If the record exists, overwrite it in the table.
2. If the record doesn't exist, add it to the table.

I'm having real difficulty with the VBA code to check an Access table for the existence of a specific record, and then overwrite. I can do it with dates, but I'm looking for a unique record ID "300112_1_II" and it's trowing up a "Type mismatch" error.

For testing purposes, I'm using the following parameters:

Field = Field_1
Table = TBL_1
Record ID = Test_Record

Basically, I want to check Field_1 for the existence of Test_Record and then either edit the other fields in the record or add a new record, depending upon what it finds.

VBA Recognize Windows User Accounts And Allow Edit Access

Jul 22, 2009

I'm working on protecting a spreadsheet to where only certain people would be allowed to unprotect and edit it... I've used a standard password protection and created a userform prompting for password and unlocking the sheet, and this works fine.

On the other hand, I was interested if it's possible to write the code to where once the "unprotect" button is clicked it would seek User Account name from windows and try to match it with a list of users somewhere within the workbook. This way the user wouldn't be prompted for a password, but rather the unlocking would simply work or not depending on user account.

Macro To Edit Multiple Rows Of Text

Oct 22, 2007

I used the macro editor to create a "simple" macro to edit 7 rows of text. The steps were basic and simple - F2 key, backspace about 25 times, and down arrow then repeat these 3 steps 6 more times. The macro I got gave me the result of the very first cell as I was recording the macro. I think I remember the old Lotus 1-2-3 macro text - {edit}{backspace}{down}. Wish it were still that simple.

Macro: Save File & Automatically Overwrite Old File

I presently have a macro that, when run, takes to conents of C4 and C6 and saves a new version of the file being worked on into a folder on my desktop.

How can I change this macro so that, when pressed, it overwrites the file without prompting the user and waiting for their answer?

Save A Cell As A Text File

Dec 3, 2007

Could any Excel wiz out there tell me whether the following is possible, and if so what would be the VB code to do it?

I would like a macro that will save the contents of cell A2 in a text file, with file name from cell A1, then move the cursor down to the next row, and repeat the process until reaching the last row of data.

The end result would be a stack of text files, each containing the data from a single cell in the spreadsheet.

e.g.
001.txt (containing the contents of cell A2)
002.txt (containing the contents of cell B2)
003.txt (containing the contents of cell C2)
...etc.

This is for a multi lingual dictionary so the text files would have to be unicode as well.

Macro To Save File - Save Name From Cell Containing Date Using Different Date Formatting

Aug 15, 2014

I am trying to create a macro to run from a form button, within a report, to save a file to a variable file path and name depending on the date value in cell B5.

Open Text File Into Worksheet & Save As .xls

May 14, 2008

I have a folder that has a bunch of text files in it with numeric names (they are store numbers 2, 3, 165, 188, etc...). I need to open those files (in excel), run a macro on them (this portion of the macro has already been created), and then save them with the same name as the txt file but in an xls format and close. It would be great to have the whole folder process automatically but I am willing to start small. Further, I'd like it to not ask for a filename, and I don't want to see the SaveAs dialog box. So far I have been able to get the macro to run through the my processing of the text file all the way to the SaveAs portion, but the code in my macro opens the SaveAs box and puts the filename of the txt file in the file name box in quotes with the txt extension. Below is the code.

Sub Macro3()
sFile = Application. GetOpenFilename( _
fileFilter:="Text Files (*.txt), *.txt", FilterIndex:=1, _
Title:="Open Workbook")
Workbooks.OpenText Filename:= _
sFile, Origin:= _

I do have the below code to safe a file and close it:

Sub Save_Close()
'
' Save_Close Macro
'
'
ActiveWorkbook.Save
Application.Quit

I would like to do additionally something else. I need a macro to do the above, but it should first check if cells A2:C9 do contain text. The text could be anything.

If there is text in ALL the cells, then the macro should save and close the file. If there is text missing in at least one of the cells, a message box should appear saying 'Please fill out all cells'.

Automatically Save Copy As Text File When Data Changes

Sep 5, 2006

I'm trying to create a sub that will save my worksheet to a tab delimited text file anytime there is a change in the worsheet data (all cells are linked to cells in other workbooks). I've figured out the command to save the file

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
"C:Documents and SettingsChrisMy DocumentsBook1.txt", FileFormat:=xlText _
, CreateBackup:=False

but I'm not sure how to get a sub routine to start running when the file opens and to have it run continuously while open. I've found the command:

Application.Volatile

that will flag when any cells in my range are recomputed and run a function, but functions don't allow me to save the file.
