Open Large Text File With Query?

Sep 20, 2006

I have a large text file (greater than 64k lines) which I need to import into excel. I only need anything imported from the text file that is for dates I specify. So I would like to run a line by line query and only import the lines I need.

The dates are always in position 43-50 (dd-mm-yy) in the text file itself, so the code would have to look at that section, see if the date is within the range specified and only import if it is (and then move onto the next line).

File Too Large To Open?

Mar 16, 2013

my colleague did something to one of our files and it is now 845918 kb. I transferred it to a flash drive and then to my hard drive but now I cant open it to see what is wrong. Is there a trick to opening this up? When it was opened on her computer it wouldn't let me add any tabs or move tabs. I think I unprotected it but that didn't change anything.

So Large File That Excel Cannot Open It...

May 4, 2009

I have a file that became too big due to phantom bloat, unused range saved by Excel and all that kind of reasons. Thank to previous posts on that board tackling that issue, I was able to find how to proceed to reduce the file back to its normal size.

But I did so in a beta file (test file). The real file has become so big (103MB!) that Excel cannot even open it anymore! The file contains archive info that we do not have anywhere else.

Is there anyway then to open the file or to reduce its size without opening it (through magics...)? I just honestly don't know how to retrieve that info before deleting that file.

Large File Takes Long Time To Open/Save

May 19, 2008

I have a large Excel 2007 file, around 60.000KB. 54.000KB are due to one of the worksheets where I have 8760rows x 160columns with data. The calculation time is not a problem, it is very fast, it only takes 2/3 seconds. The problem is when I open or save the file, it takes around 2 minutes... it is not too much, but it becomes too long when one has to open and save it several times. It there any trick to decrease the time when openning or saving an excel file??

Looping, Open Text File, Copy Text, Close Text File

Sep 18, 2009

I have an existing spreadsheet with a column of strings (actually VIN numbers). These numbers correllate to a bunch of text files, that can exist in one of three folders (UsernameDesktop1, 2, or 3) on my desktop. What I need the macro to do is:

1) get the filename from A2 (A1 is a heading row)
2) Find the appropriate text file in one of the three folders
3) Put the folder name into I2
4) Scan the text file for some strings, and copy some data that follows those strings into J2:O2 (I can handle programming this)
5) Close the text file
6) repeat above for the remainder of filenames (about 1800 files)

Open Text File From File Manager Vs. Within Workbook

Oct 2, 2006

I've encountered a bit of an odd one. I am opening a tab delimited file, which has been sved as an xls. When I open from file manager, it opens correctly. When I open from Excel, I have to go through 3 screen dictating how the data is set up, and the end result is that a couple of the numbers come through as text, rather than numbers.

Failing an explanation - how do you open workbooks as file system objects - currently I am opening them using

Workbooks.Open Filename:=wb.Path & "/" & ws. Range("B1").Value

If I open them by mimicking the FM, perhaps it will work OK.

Import Large Text File Of Numbers Without Excel Splitting Numbers?

Jul 19, 2014

I have a text file with rows and columns of numbers ranging from 1-4 digits that I'd like to import/copy into Excel with each number being in its own cell. But whenever I copy/try to import, Excel splits all of the 3-4 digit numbers up into single digit numbers. The text file has 10,000+ columns (each number occupies two columns so I have half of that amount in numbers) and 300+ lines.

Is the file simply too large for Excel to handle or is there a way I can do this?

Open Text File Into Excel Template

Jan 10, 2010

I work for a company that has about 650 locations. Each location has a location manager that is responsible for submitting a Performance Review spreadsheet for all the employees at their location.

Currently I have an Excel file that has all employees/locations. One of the columns on my spreadsheet is "Location ID"...which is literately a number we've assigned to our Locations. I have an Excel template saved that I'd like each Location to open into.

Can someone help me? I need each location to be it's own spreadesheet...which I have a template created already. I'd prefer to find an automated way to do this...rather than manually creating 650 spreadsheets.

I'd prefer to do this in anoter application, such as MS Access, but senior management already made the decision this will be done in I'm stuck with what I got.

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:= _

Excel 2010 :: Open Text Files In 65536 Row File Instead Of 1048576?

Apr 22, 2013

Is there a way to open a text file from Excel 2010 and specify that I want it in .xls format?

I am working in compatibility mode, and expected that when I opened a text file from code within an xls file, the text file would have 65,536 rows, but it has 1,048,576. This causes a problem when we try to copy the sheet with the data from the text file, and insert the sheet into our xls workbook. See code below. The error is: Run-time error '1004': Excel cannot insert the sheets into the destination workbook, because it contains fewer rows and columns than the source workbook..

I know I can get the data other ways (such as copying and pasting only the cells containing data) but I was hoping to make minimal changes to the code below as I will have to make it across several templates. Specifically, I was hoping that there was a qualifier I could add to the Workbooks.OpenText statement after "Tab:=True" - Perhaps something about opening the text file in File Format 56. However I have not been able to find out how to do that.

.....FileToOpen = Application.GetOpenFilename("All Files (*.*),*.*,GeoTAC Files (*.ctf),*.ctf, ­_
Text Files (*.txt),*.txt,Excel Files (*.xls),*.xls", 1, , , False)
Workbooks.OpenText Filename:=FileToOpen, _
