Creating CSV Files From Spreadsheet
I am trying to create CSV files from Excel spreadsheet for each tab. But when I convert these CSV files, text in cell is limiting to 255 characters, in otherwords it is getting truncated after 255characters. I am using Excel 2003 version.

And also when convereted these windows CSV files to UNIX csv files using the command "DOS2UNIX", some charaters becoming special characters. For exmaple, I have the actual text as "If AEENDTC ne '' then do; " and is becoming "If AEENDTC ne ś∆ then do; " Do you have any idea why it is doing this.

Load Multiple CSV Files In A Spreadsheet Faster
In my spreadsheet I load 26 CSV files. Each CSV file has 3 columns and 7 rows. It uses the connection query in Excel. It is only relatively slow to refresh the data. To refresh the data, I can press the refresh data button in Excel.

But in practice I use this code every 5 seconds:

Automatically Create Csv Files From Columns
I have an excel worksheet with data from A to T and the numbers of rows may change from use to use. I want to create a button/macro that determines where the data ends and will take the data from two columns, say column A and column D and put it in a new csv file.

In my final product, I would really like to be able to have a set of check boxes that say "Column D", "Column E", ... "Column T" and so if I check TWO boxes, say "Column D" and "Column T" and click create, it will output TWO csv files, one with Column A and Column D and the other with Column A and Column T.

Macro To Import From .csv Files
1. I've recorded a macro that imports values from 6 different .csv files at once. The problem is that not all of these files are going exist upon import. Is there a way to tell the macro to only import if the file exists? And to skip if the import of that file if it doesn't exist? Right now the debugger stops the macro because of file not found.

2. I want to press a button on Sheet 1 that copies Sheet 1 into a new Sheet that's named with today's date. E.g. I press the "Archive"-button, the sheet is copied to a new sheet with the name "051308".

Macro To Convert All Worksheets To Csv Files
1. I need your help in converting all the worksheets in a workbook to CSV format. Is it possible to do that with a macro?

2. I have 20 workbooks, each with 12 worksheets. I need to combine the data in all the workbooks to create a database. As I will not be
able to do that in Excel (due to the row limit), I am thinking of using MS Access.

Therefore I am planning to convert these excel files into CSV files and then use the CSV files to create an MS Access database.

Search CSV Files For Word & Make .xls Files Of Them
I have 22 CSV files. I want to search each of those files for a specific text string (ie: "profile" or "description"). When the macro finds the word in any one of the CSV files I want it to copy that complete csv worksheet and paste it into an excel xls file.

how I can go about doing this. Not also that while vlookup is possible, its very time consuming if i have to do this 50 times over and each time the csv files have different file names. that is why i want to search within a file (each file has its own unique identifying text string)

Is there an easy way to do this for all files in a given folder? Ideally, the files don't even need to be opened as they are are quite large in size (70MB+) and there are a lot of them (500+).

Merge Files? (add Data From One Spreadsheet To The Appropriate Places On Another Spreadsheet)
Often I need to add data from one spreadsheet to the appropriate places on another spreadsheet. For example:

Sheet A has 10,000 records with these fields: id#, name, address, place of employment.

Sheet B has 5,000 records these fields: id#, GPA, college major, type of degree.

Some of the records in B contain information for the same id#'s as sheet A. I want to add this information together so that a Sheet C will have these fields: id#, name, address, place of employment, GPA, college major, type of degree.

How Can I Merge Two CSV Files
I have two CSV's which are updated on a regular basis.

CSV Master - contains about 23,000 rows at the moment and will continue to grow.

CSV Master - does have a header row

CSV Master has unique (8 digit) numerical ID's in column A so all unique ID's start at "A2"

CSV Master - contains 31 columns ("A through to and including AE") this is a fixed figure.

---- Then I have ---

CSV Extras - generally contains about 200 rows and its unlikely it will ever be more but is contents are different every time it is used.

CSV Extras - does have a header row

CSV Extras has unique (8 digit) numerical ID's in column "A" so all unique ID's start at "A2" and these ID's are a common denominator with both sheets.

CSV Extras - contains 44 columns (last column is AR) which is a fixed figure,

CSV Extras - columns "B up to and including AE" are all intentionally all blank fields.

--- Hope that explains where I am, this is what I need to do ----

I need to be able to look up the ID's (that are in column A in both CSV's) and create a single CSV. In my mind that is a Vlookup of some sort but I can't get it to work

I want to open CSV Master and then, If the ID exists in CSV Extras then fetch all the data in columns "AF to AR" and add it to the CSV Master.

Csv Ranges - Active Files
I am trying to pull a selected range from a series of csv files, and copy them into a specific range in an excel workbook, do some caluclations, and repeat the process. My problem is that after I open the csv file, the program stops and does not pick up the selected range in the csv file. I tried to use a Windows().Activate command on the csv file to ensure that is is picking up the correct workbook , but the bug says teh subscript is out of range...I am sure I am doing something really stupid, and there is a simpler way of writing this but I can't figure it out.

Splitting *.csv Files Into Batches
I have a number of csv files with 30,000 - 60,000 records.

I'm looking for some code which will split them into batches of 250 record batches.

Each file id named FY838A, FY838B, FY838C etc.

I need something which will open the file then copy the first row (Field names), open a new book and paste the headers.

Then cut the first 250 records, rows 2:251 and paste them into the new book.

I then need to save them as a *.csv

All are named BatchFY838A (then B, C, D for each one)

Here's the main bit I can't figure out:

I would like to create a destination folder for each file.

I already have a main folder:
say C:IncompInbox
but when each file is created I need to make a folder for it to sit in:

C:IncompInboxFY838AFY 1
C:IncompInboxFY838AFY 2
C:IncompInboxFY838AFY 3
C:IncompInboxFY838AFY 4

(I need to create the FY838@ folder then the destination ones after that)

Until there are no records left to batch. i.e. the code needs to stop when it's completed the list (each one has a different amount of records)

Additional. Along with this I have 3 Word.doc's which need to be placed in each of the above folders, can I do this at the same time)

The end result is to be 3 Word.doc's and a *.csv file in each folder, this is for a huge Mail Merge which is already coded, so each files content will be 4 documents with exactly the same names.

Formatting Not Retained With CSV Files
1. Open notepad file. Type 01. Save it as "Book2.CSV". Close notepad.
2. Open Book2.CSV in excel

You will see that 01 is shown as 1.

I would like to retain 01 in Cell A1. How do I do this in CSV?

I know how to retain formatting in excel but not in CSV. You can do the following in Excel files:

In the cell A1, right click and choose 'Format Cells'. In the Number tab, choose the category as Custom. In the Type on the right hand side, I type in 00. The value 1 in the cell A1 gets converted to 01.

My question:
1. why is this formatting not retained with CSV files?
2. Is there a way to programmatically (macros) to correct this?

After many tribulations I was able to import it through the Data import menu (text).

CSV Files Open In New File Instance
I regularly process CSV files that are downloaded from various websites. The problem is, for some reason many (but NOT all) downloaded CSV files do not open in "Microsoft Office Excel" and thus, my primary workspace. They instead open in a separate instance of "Excel.exe" which is actually kinda nice because I can treat each separately, move windows around, etc. The problem is, macros that are in my primary workbook, cannot be seen by the secondary instance(s). So while I have created a number of nifty macros to clean up all the data and format it exactly how I want it in the blink of an eye, I can't run them when a file opens in its own instance.

1) How can I force ALL .csv files to open in the primary "Microsoft Office Excel" application? NOTE: Using the normal Windows Explorer "Open With..." function and setting the default application only works for LOCAL files, and does NOT work to control how remotely downloaded .csv files are opened.

2) How can I make it so that macros can be seen between Excel instances - such that when I choose to see macros in "all open workbooks", it will actually see the macros in the open workbook in the other primary Excel instance?

Links To CSV Files, Find And Replace Not Working
I have a large spreadsheet that has links to CSV files. Every month I need to create a new folder and put the CSV files into that folder, all the CSV files from month to month have the same name for each worksheet.

I'm trying to do Find and replace on the Folder name within the links to change say, February to March so I can just add the CSV files for each month and the spreadsheet will link to the new CSV file in the folder.

I have even tried adding all the February CSV's to the March folder so that when I overwrite the CSV's it will update the master spreadsheet, but it keeps asking me where to look for the folder.
Here is an example of a link:

='\FileservermsbilBRANCH REPORTSBM ReportsFebruary[TItemToDispense@40186 Export Dispensed Item Data-00.CSV]TItemToDispense@40186 Export Di'!BM2

As you can see the folder is named February within the link and I need to replace it with March.

Dynamically Get Data From Many CSV Files Onto Different Sheets Of Workbook
There is a folder which contains some CSV files. These CSV files are updated say every 5 mins. By updations, I mean new data is appended to these CSV files, keeping old ones. Desire:

1. I want to have one master workbook which will have all of the CSV files in the folder as different sheets in the master workbook.
2. The master workbook sheet should be updated as soon as the corresponding CSV is updated.

My Approach:
Get the list of the CSV files from the directory. Open the CSV files, one after one and copy the newer data, by comparing to a marker that is updated after the new data is read.

Renaming Files From A Spreadsheet
to take a spreadsheet in excel and rename files with it. I will get all the columns together and

named properly by using the concatenate function. So when i go to rename i would have a

list of say 5,000 things to rename. In column A will be the full path. In column B will be the

new name i want it to replace the old one with extension and all. The reason i want to do this

is because that way i can work with the 5,000 files column A, B, C, D, get everything the

way i want it and then concatenate them. Then rename the files after copying and repasting

them so there is no formula. This would just be much easier than having to go to each

individual file and rename. also a lot easier to be able to compare and see what is going on

in spreadsheet i can sort compare. just a lot easier. i have messed around with excel some

but not macros much. what i would like to do is for a macro to look in A1 for path then

rename with B1. then A2 for path then rename with B2. loop through all rows until there is

nothing in A? that way there does not have to be a certain number of files. i do not know if

C: estSGB04SGB04-08 - Frank Sinatra - Wives And

rename to B1

Open All Xls Files In Folder & Copy To 1 Spreadsheet
Iím wondering if this is possible, if I have a folder with say 30 excel spreadsheets (.xls) all named differently (number of files will always change), can I easily write something in VBA to Open all the spreadsheets and copy each sheet over to an existing Excel spreadsheet? For example, have a Ďtemplateí spreadsheet where the VBA would exist, then have the first sheet, (Sheet1) of each 30 sheets be copied back over to the template.xls? Even better, could I rename each Sheet1 to the name of the file before copying it over? This would basically be the first step in my process of getting the spreadsheet made.

I found this code in a similar question, so how can I rename the Sheet to the opened file name, then copy that over to template.xls?

I want to maintain all cell formatting, ie A1=sum(whatever) without retyping it all.
