Macro To Import TXT Data

Aug 24, 2008

I have a TXT file that is properly format for a nice print out but not in any fashion to work in an excel or access file.

My txt file looks something like this
Header info Row 1
Header info Row 2
Header info Row 3
ACCT# Value Descripton ~ Part number
Customer Name ~ Vendor Name
Customer add1 ~ Vend add1
Customer add2 ~ Vend add2
Custom city, st, zip ~ vend city, st, zip

Repeat about 5 or 6 more entries
do a page bread and repeat the headers and then 5 or 6 more entries

I want to automatically copy the entries and place the data into Row 1 of Excel starting in Column 1 through Column 12

Then the 2nd entry would be in row 2 etc

Import CSV Macro?

Oct 31, 2011

I have managed to come up with the following macro. The problem I have is that some of the data are imported in text format, while other data are imported in general format.

I have a large data set, with more then 5,000 rows, and 2,000 columns, and I would like ALL the data imported at text. How can I modify this macro to make that happen?

Code:

Sub ImportData()
With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:= _"TEXT;C:Users*****ATTRIBUTES-ModifiedExport.csv", Destination:=Range("$A$1"))
.Name = "ATTRIBUTES-ModifiedExport.csv"
.FieldNames = False
.RowNumbers = False
.FillAdjacentFormulas = False

Import XML File Macro

Jan 29, 2014

I wish to click on a button in a worksheet which then looks in a particular folder on the local drive. Any file with a .xml extension import into the worksheet.

What if 2 or more xml files are present? The xml file filename ends with the date & time the file was generated, eg BPSEvent_10033_Tam_20140116124216

Can a code look for the oldest file to import based on the end of the filenaming format - yyyymmddhhmmss

Code to then delete the last xml file imported would be good too.

Incorporating Macro Import Within Another Sub?

Jan 13, 2012

The following code (blue font) finds specific worksheets in an active workbook, and copies them into a new workbook then names the new workbook the same name of the worksheet. It all works perfectly.

The second code below (red font) imports some vb into the new workbook. It works fine if I manually open the new workbook and run it in the immediate window. However, I would like to incorporate the red code into the blue code so it all runs as one. I've tried inserting the red line after the "ws.copy after" line and after the ".saveas" line, but no dice.

For Each ws In wb.Worksheets
If UCase(Left(ws.Name, 2)) = "CC" Then
Set NewBook = Workbooks.Add

Macro To Import .DAT File

Dec 20, 2006

I would like to have a macro that will allow me to browse to the desired file and import the data into columns. I have the macro working to the point of allowing me to browse, select the file, and pasting the contents into the active sheet.

The things that I need help with are:

1. Getting the data to paste into a specific cell instead of A1. Currently the code is

CELLS.SELECT
ACTIVESHEET.PASTE

I would like the data to start in A7.


2. Getting the file parsed into columns. The format of the .DAT file is static and only has 4 columns. Currently when it imports, the entire record (row) all of the data is in the same column. I would like it separated into individual columns if possible.

Macro To Import From .csv Files

May 13, 2008

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".

Import/Copy Macro

Jun 16, 2006

I'm trying to create a macro that will import data from another excel
file, into my current excel file.

Basically, I see the process going as follows:
1. Run Macro via Button
2. Pop-Up Window asking for File Location (importBook)
3. Import Data from importBook into sheet entitled Data
4. Click OK once import is complete

I've got some knowledge of coding but macro coding knowledge is
limited. If anyone has an existing code or can whip one up, I would be
very appreciative.

I started out with this

Dim filename As Variant
filename = Application. GetOpenFilename()
Workbooks.Open filename

Macro - Report Header Import

Jul 11, 2008

I've got a basic handle on the application/use of macros, & personally use them for cleaning up data exported from a very very old as400esq application.

My problem is that i have managed to clean up all the blank data & piffle, but Im stupped by the header part of the text dump.

Heres an example;
A B C D E F
-------------------Header A-------------
1 3 john 50 piano
4 1 Bill 25 horn
6 5 Ted 60 trumpet
-------------------Header B-------------
3 3 Phil 71 Cello
1 1 James 83 Viola
3 2 Earnie 62 Violin

I basically want to rid the header rows from the spreadsheet & drop the header description (Header A/ Header B) into column F for all those items below until you get to the next header.

Macro To Import Log Files With Different Delimiters

Sep 29, 2009

I need to import a number of log files into a spreadsheet, each log will go into a separate tab. The logs are text files (.log) that have the same structure but slightly differ from each other.

For example all the logs will have many lines of data all starting with a date and then a number of delimited fields. In some logs the delimiter is a coma, in others is a unique charachter such as "{" or "@". Also the delimited fields are not a given quantity, they can vary too from log to log. How can I write a macro that understands what delimiter needs to be used and then imports all the file accordingly into one spreadsheet (in separate tabs)?

I tried something with the macro recorder and browsed for directions on the internet but really am clueless on this one. I am using windows 2000, and referenced Windows Scripting Runtime.

Import Macro With No Extensions By Timestamp

Mar 25, 2007

I want to automate the download process of these scan files we use. I can figure out how to do that if not for the two wildcards I'm about to throw out.

What I can't seem to figure out is how to use VBA to determine which files to import. I was thinking about possibly having VBA look for the time stamps on these files in the scan file directory, and then only import those ones which created in less than an hour from current time.

I have only a few days of VBA experience, so I don't have a clue where to start. If anyone could provide assistance/point me in the right direction.

By the way, the files that I am importing will be a comma delimited file. However, for some reason, the files are all extensionless (without .xxx)

Import Data And Delete Macro

Jan 15, 2007

after importing data (data >> get external data >> import text file) and running a macro that contains

Cells(i, 5).EntireRow.Delete Shift:=xlShiftUp


i cannot insert any data into the next column below. why is this so? is it because of the excel memory that remembers that a macro has been previously ran in that cell before? example i import text file into B1 then the data will be imported into different cells using delimiters. the data will occupy from row 1 to 22. After i run the macro which combines fields with similar data the data will occupy row 1 to 15. then when i try to import data into B16. the "import text file" option will be grayed out. why is this so? how do i solve the problem?

Import Multiple Text Files & Copy Each Import

Jan 29, 2008

I'm attempting to import around 200 (and growing!) separate text files into Excel. I am using the formula below to import the text file and then using a separate macro to select the information I need, copy it into another spreadsheet, and then run the import macro again.

However, I have a problem in that my import macro gives me 'Run-time error '1004:

Application defined or user defined error''. At first this wasn't a problem as the information is pasted into the spreadsheet despite the error anyway. However, now that I am looping the macro it is obviously causing more problems as it prevents the loop. I would really appreciate it if anyone knows of a work-around or can spot an error in the coding to resolve this!

The code below shows is for the import macro only:

Sub ImportTextFile(FName As String, Sep As String)

Dim RowNdx As Long
Dim ColNdx As Integer
Dim TempVal As Variant
Dim WholeLine As String
Dim Pos As Integer
Dim NextPos As Integer
Dim SaveColNdx As Integer

Import Macro (CLS File) Into Multiple Workbooks Using VBA

Sep 20, 2012

I have 400+ workbooks in a folder. If they are all .xlsm (macro-enabled) workbooks, how can I import a macro (.cls file) to a particular sheet (sheet1) in each workbook using VBA so that when a user on another machine opens one of them, the macro works? Right now, I have this code to loop through all workbooks; I only need the import function to go in the middle. Copying and pasting or importing manually 400+ times is just plain unrealistic!

VB:

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.

Auto-Run Macro - Import CSV Data Into Specified Worksheet

Jun 27, 2013

I've created an Auto_Run macro that imports a CSV file into a specified worksheet. That worksheet is referenced by VlookUp in another worksheet within the workbook. Everything works perfectly EXCEPT, in the midst of running the macro, the user is prompted to (RE)choose the csv file already specified in the macro. Neither the folder nor the filename ever changes, so I'm not sure why I have to keep indicating the file every time the macro runs.

PHP Code:

 'Sub Auto_Run() ' ' Auto_Run Macro ' '    Sheets("CSVData").Select    Cells.Select    
Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp    With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:= _  "TEXT;

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

what i want to do is to group the record with the same postcode together and just return one record for each postcode in excel.

so the output will have the postcode, the sum of written premium, written units.

I understand i can use Access to do it, but I want just to use excel for this task.

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

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") = ""
