Parse Only Specific Data Of Text File To Worksheet

Aug 30, 2006

I have a text file with no discernable format ( can't import into excel) that is too large to put all the data into an excel worksheet. This file is made to print out on a network printer.

I don't need all the info in the file, I would like to specify a variable, search the text file for the variable, then specify the amount of rows down to look for the data value and input the result into an excel spreadsheet.

Parse And Import Text File

Jan 29, 2007

I have a software application that imports audio files and writes information about these files to text files. I'm trying to write and Excel/VBA application that will parse and import the data contained in these files. find a sample of one of these files attached. The big hurdle I am facing is I cannot figure out how to parse this file - the delimiter keeps changing as throughout the file (see example below):

otrk ┤ptrk Č
otrk ╬ptrk Ă
otrk ďptrk ╠
otrk Ôptrk ┌
otrk *ptrk "
otrk ěptrk đ
otrk ■ptrk ÷
otrk ┤ptrk Č
otrk ptrk
otrk đptrk ╚

File Too Big...way To Parse Out Data And Write To Csv

Feb 12, 2010

I have a file with multiple tabs of data...lot's of data (each tab has 80,000+ lines and 23 columns...3 are formulas, the rest is imported data). I've brought Excel to it's knees (i.e. crashes). Yes, I'm using 2007.

What I'm trying to do is extract 6 cells of data from every 10th line and write it out to a CSV file with two more pieces of information (same for each line).

What I was doing was creating a separate worksheet for each one to be extracted, parsing out the data, and then copying that data to yet another workbook that was then saved as a CSV.

First, in retrospect, that was a waste of time. Second, the addition of the extra worksheets to do the parsing was crashing Excel due to the extreme size of the workbook.

What I'd like to do is use a macro to do all of this in one swell foop:

1) Prompt me for a file name (or I can put the desired name in a cell and read it from there if that simplifies the code)
2) Open a new text file with that name and ".csv" extension in the same folder as the original workbook
3) Write out the column headers: (Fix, Satellites, Lat, Lon, alt (ft), Date, utc_t, course)
4) Step through each row, looking at the text contents of column B (looks like 22:50:07.100)...if it ends in ".000" do the following:
4a) write "PPS,4," to the open text file
4b) write the cell contents from columns "V", "W", "J", "C", "B", and "L" to the text file in the exact format they appear in the text cell.

The output file should look like (very short example):

Fix,Satellites,Lat,Lon,alt (ft),Date,utc_t,course
PPS,4,30.543203,-86.323328,1419.04,2009/12/17,23:26:22.000,243.95
PPS,4,30.539272,-86.332765,1831.53,2009/12/17,23:26:34.000,242.61

Parse Delimited PDF Data Into Worksheet

Feb 11, 2008

I have a PDF document with an income statement that I'm trying to bring into excel. When I copy it, it puts all of the information in 1 column like this: NET INCOME 183,450 (237,660) 421,110 177 (1,461,273) (1,769,800) 308,526 17
CAPITAL EXPENDITURES Land Improvements 0 0 0 35,000 0 (35,000) Building Improvements 7,500 0 (7,500) 243,129 626,500 383,371 61. I cannot use text to columns, because the CATEGORIES are different in length (3 to 4 to 5 words at times).

I can seperate the numbers from the words, but I can't seperate the numbers from one another. Is there any way that I can do this via a text fuction?

*Example*
0 0 0 35,000 0 (35,000)
7,500 0 (7,500) 243,129 626,500 383,371 61
29,881 310,460 280,579 90 380,580 1,556,576 1,175,996 76
0 83,248 83,248 100 76,765 574,345 497,580 87

Extract Data From A Specific Location In A Text File

Aug 7, 2006

I have been trying to work this out by looking at other posts (mostly concerning Binary Access) but can't figure it! The source text files I am using can vary in length from 4,000 characters to well over 100,000 characters. However the data I am looking for always starts 40 characters from the end of the file and is 10 characters long! I need my macro to pick out this data and store it as a string (so it can be added to an array and exported to a worksheet later)

Read And Import Multiple Text Files Into Excel And Parse Data?

Mar 27, 2014

I am trying to determine a way to quickly import data from text files into Excel and place data in suitable columns (under correct headings). I am thinking I could be asked which file to read and import doing them 1 by 1, or if there is an automated way to cycle through all the files that would be more efficient (filenames are variable).

From the text files I have attached I can tell the column headers and what data should go under each. Not sure how you would describe the delimiting on these files? Are these files in a format that VBA could be used to reduce manual copy and paste approach? I have about 300 of these files I want to extract the data from.

Note: the attached files are from a public access website.

Read Pdf Or Doc File Line By Line And Then Parse Data Into Proper Cells And Rows?

Feb 23, 2013

I have the data to import / read in a pdf, in a doc, or in an Excel worksheet whichever is easier to use. I need to import the data, parse it into the correct cells for that row and then repeat the import until the end of the file. Not all the cells are in each group of data to import, so those cells will be null for that row. Some of the data for one cell may be in up to 14 lines in the data file. I have be concatenating these data rows into one cell. There are 48,000 lines in the file to import or I would do this manually. I am assuming that doing this in VBA would be the most efficient method.

Loop And Parse All Occurrences Of Text After Text In A String

Nov 29, 2011

I am working on modifying this code (below) that I found here: VB Macro to search webpage for text string

Code:

Option Explicit
Public stResultstr As String
Sub SearchForString()
Dim rngURL As Range
Dim cll As Range
Dim stCheck As String
Dim xmlHttp As Object

[Code]...

So right now I have the script prompt you for a URL range, then it asks you for what you want to search for, and I have it set to return the next 10 characters from that found point.

You can see here:

Code:

If InStr(1, stResult, stCheck, vbBinaryCompare) > intt Then
intt = InStr(1, stResult, stCheck, vbBinaryCompare) + Len(stCheck)

I began to create something to identify the last position of the found item because next I want to loop it to find the next occurance of the same thing and return the next 10 characters after it in the next cell to the right in that same row:

Code:

cll.Offset(, 1).Value = stResultstr

Again, what I want to do here is find and parse out every occurence of a string (inputbox) found on a web page url in column A. The parse occurrences will go to the right in cells C though ? for row N.

Extract Specific Text From A Text File

Jun 22, 2006

I had VBA run a third-party program ("HYD") using data listed in my spreadsheet. HYD produces a textfile and I want to extract a number from that log (line 58, columns 6-10 to be exact).

I started with

Open "C:TempHYDLOG.TXT" For Input As #1

but I don't know how to have it skip down to line 58 or which function to use to extract the number I want. I've read through tons of help files and forums but none of them treat anything as simple as scrolling down to specific lines.

The entire subroutine up to that point is as follows: ....

Parse Flat File And Enter It Into Separate Cells

Jul 12, 2012

I receive a flat text file every week which I would like to grab with excel and extract only the data I need and enter the data into separate cells and loop until I reach the end of the flat file. I got a subroutine written that allows me to open my text file and it will enter all the data however I need to know how to parse only the stuff I need and enter it into the right cells and loop until I reach the end of my text file. Here is what I have so far:

Sub testFSNew()
Dim fs As Object ' scripting.filesystemobject
Dim txtIn As Object ' scripting.textstream
Dim strFile As String 'File Name
Dim strLine As String 'Current line being read.

[code].....

Now so far this opens the text file and dumps all the data into an excel spreadsheet however when I say all I mean it dumps everything into the first cell and does not separate it, the following is an example of the text in the flat file. I will only put in the first 5 rows because their is 5000 rows in the real file.

Ok so the first problem is I don't need the first line it's a header line and if you will notice everyline of the file ends with either a 5 or a 4 but it is information about each employee, so the next line would end in a 5 and that would be the beginning of the next employee.

P.S. I noticed in the preview post that this message board truncated my flat file data, so keep in mind that each line is indeed 1 line ending in either 5 or a 4

Parse Worksheet Names Directly In Code

Aug 6, 2008

I am trying to add new worksheets at the end of the existing ones, with the name "Scenario " & i (i being an integer for the next scenario).

My idea is to parse the Worksheet names, counting how many times the string "Scenario " appears, and then add a new Worksheet with that name and index i+1. Here is the

Public Sub store_data_Click()

Dim NameWS, prev_sheet As String
Dim iprev, iws, iscenario As Integer

iscenario = 1
For iws = 1 To Worksheets.Count
If Find(Sheets(iws).Name, "Scenario ") = True Then
iscenario = iscenario + 1
End If

1.- Find (8th line) does not seem to be the right procedure to use; how could I do this in a clean/direct (i.e. not writing the names into a dummy worksheet and using the find function) way?

2.- How could I substitute the new Worksheet ("Scenario " & i) formulas for values without having to select all the cells and then use paste values (not so elegant).

3.- Connecting to a previous post: How could I define *exactly* the position to paste "Autoshape 1"?

Parse Text String

I want to thank BrettH for creating this VB. I want to manipulate it to read every row in Col A that has data, and then I want to parse the data as shown above. BrettH's VB works but I couldn't modify it to read all the rows that had data. I tried looping the rows using a counter loop and also a For Each loop, but could'nt get it to work.

How To Extract Specific Text From A Worksheet

Nov 10, 2009

I have a spreadsheet which is an extract from another application's DB, and it's just ugly in Excel. No nice neat columns etc. Data from some tables of the other application were just dumped into cells. Some of the data I need is scattered about the worksheet in various cells. There are no seperators that are common, no common length of text strings I could use to pull every X word etc.

The one common thread I am working with here, is the the data I need to extract ALL begins with the first 4 letters, and containers a total of 8 characters. For example:

A3 - The dogs collar had the name ABCD1234 on it
J9 - Today I found a dog collar at the store, and it read ABCD2345
c5 - It says ABCD3456

I'm trying to basically see if there is a way/function within excel that can go through all of the cells and extract anything that says ABCD? (and the 4 wildcards after it)

The Find all function finds them all, but trying to just extract the data ABCD? info.
