Rename Multiple Text Files

Nov 18, 2006

In a folder I have several text files (each text file is a customer statement)
I get the files from the computer dept named randomly, I need to rename each
File to its customer ID number, each ID consists of 15 characters (including the dash characters) and is found on the 3rd row of the file (3rd row , skip one character And count 15 characters ex : 0010-902514-422)

I found a code that renames the text files incrementally (1,2,3..). I need to modify the code so that instead of renaming the files that way I rename them by their ID number (get the ID of each file while looping then rename It by that ID)
One more thing, can I get the ID then skip 44 characters and attach the following 14 characters to the ID (ex : 0010-902514-422- Lebanese Pound). ttached is a folder containing an excel file with the code and 2 statements

Sub RenFile()
Dim arrFiles As Variant
Dim intCounter As Integer
Dim datFile As Date
Dim strFile As String, strPath As String
strPath = ActiveWorkbook.Path
arrFiles = FileArray(strPath, "*.txt")
For intCounter = 1 To UBound(arrFiles)
strFile = arrFiles(intCounter)
Name strPath & strFile As strPath & intCounter & ".txt"
Next intCounter
End Sub

Private Function FileArray(strPath As String, strPattern As String)
Dim arrDatabase()
Dim intCounter As Integer.............................

Rename Multiple Files In A Folder Macro

Jun 11, 2009

I have 400ish departmental budget files in a folder that I need to upload to a Sharepoint doc library. The files in the folder will have to exactly match the files we already have set up in sharepoint in order to upload them to the sharepoint site. As it stands now there is only one consistency between the sharepoint files and the budget files in the folder, which is the department number (which every file in both begins with).

I'm thinking some sort of macro will let me insert a sheet into each of the files in the budget folder, which would have a formula that pulls the department number from a certain sheet in the file, and produce the file name I want into a certain cell. Then I would like a macro that goes into each file and renames it based on that cell. I'd like to know if this is possible and if there may be a better way to do it.

Excel 2010 :: Rename Files In Multiple Folders And Copy To New Folder

Sep 22, 2013

For the last year I have been downloading cash register X1 and Z1 files onto an SD card. Each night's files (X1 & Z1) are stored in a new folder with the naming convention "RP + [DATE]", (EX: RP120910, [YYMMDD]). I have 265 folders! I need to go through each folder, select the Z1 file (I don't care about the X1, X2 or Z2 files) and rename each with the following naming convention: "Z1 + folder_name + .xls". For Example: Folder RP120910 contains the Z1 file named "Z1_T1729.ECR". After renaming, the file should be "Z1RP120910.xls". As the VBA code loops through each subfolder, selecting and renaming the Z1 files, I would like the new files to be placed into a new folder named "Z1Files". Note: All subfolders are currently in a directory named "RegisterFiles". I am using Excel 2010.

Save Ranges In Multiple Files To Text Files

Dec 21, 2007

I have a excel file that I enter information into. I have code that saves the files to a certain folder with the name, date, and time stamp for the file name. At the end of the day I might have 3 to 15 excel files I have created that day and I would like to take information from certain cells (examle: L3, B6, B7, B8, G8, and so on) and create a txt file with all of the information in it.

Example:
12/20/2007
Your Name
123 Somewhere St.
Here, OH 45111
Home Visit

12/20/2007
Someone Else
345 Anywhere St.
There, OH 45211
Hospital Visit

Convert Multiple Files To Text Files

Sep 26, 2007

I have about 100 Excel files in one folder that need to be saved as text files. They can keep the same name, but simply need to be converted to text files. I'd like to use VBA for this and I can't find examples that do exactly that...or ones that my limited knowledge can handle.

Excel files exist in C:Source and ALL of them should be saved as text files in C:Destination. Maybe there is an easier way, but I thought for sure there was a routine I could use.

Rename Files Based On List

May 26, 2013

I have several .mp3 files in a directory that I'd like to rename based on a list.

Currently I have a sheet with two columns starting at "A2" and "B2"

Column A contains the file path and old name (without extension) ie: C:RenameFromListOldName_01
Column B contains the file path and new name (without extension) ie: C:RenameFromListNewName_01

I've modified the code below (obtained here on these forums) to work with mp3 files, which renames them, but it also corrupts my files.

VB:
Sub Rename_Files_from_List()
Dim oFiles As Range, fPath As String
Set oFiles = Range("A2", Range("A65536").End(xlUp))
fPath = Range("D2").Value

[Code] .....

Macro To Rename Files In A Folder

Jun 16, 2014

Macro to rename files

I have following problem, discribed also in the link above.

I need a vba code to

- choose a folder instead of a file
- find all the files in the chosen folder with name that starts with "sz" and end with "_d"
- rename those files by replacing the first 5 numbers that follow sz with 5 different numbers that the user can choose e.g. through a user form.

I imagine the user to open the excel file, click on a form thats linked to a macro. The macro will call a userform and ask the user to choose the folder and type in a textbox the 5 new numbers.

I need the code that will be pasted behind the "OK" button in the userform.

Is this possible with vba?

Here a code i found in the link mentioned above, that i have applied and works - but needs to be modified to meet my needs:
Sub GetImportFileName()

Dim Filt As String
Dim FilterIndex As Integer
Dim Title As String
Dim FileName As Variant
Dim newname As String

[Code].....

Loop Through All Files Rename And Save In Another Folder

I have excel files in a folder, I need a macro to loop through all files, rename them and save them in another folder. the file's name is available in a cell in each file, I am able to get the file name as text (I had to dig a little to get the text as it was between ""). Well I am stuck right now because the macro is doing what it's supposed to do for one excel file only and does not continue with the rest of the available files for a reason.

VB:

Dim Bk As Variant

Count & Rename Files & Save Each To Array

Dec 12, 2006

I have used macro to ftped a couple of files to my desktop and save them in a folder but i have problems performing the following.

1) Count the number of files in this directory "C:Summary_Reports_from_VBA". Note that the number of files is not fixed every time.

2) Rename each files to .txt files. (intially files do not have any extension and we do not know the name of the file until it has been ftped over but all files will end with a term "sorts" eg renaming of "xxxsorts" to "xxxsorts.txt")

3) Save each renamed files in an Array such that i can "opentext" each file in an excel worksheet. So if there's multiple files, there will be multiple worksheets.

Macro Rename Excel Files Based On Cell Contents?

Jun 23, 2014

Can a macro rename Excel files based on a cell's contents? The problem maybe that I download these files en masse from a website and they all have 54-character long randomly generated filenames which I can rename by selecting all and then use the rename function to get a series of filenames like a, a(2), a(3), ... but I would rather have the files renamed based on the text that exists in cell B1 which is the title of the report. I also read somewhere that this kind of macro only works if the tabs have names like "Sheet 1"

Importing Multiple Text Files

Apr 16, 2008

This is a great bit of code (I found), to import multiple text files.

I have one small issue -

currently it imports with each file going to a new column, like this: text file1 A1:A4, txt file2 B1:B4, txt file3 C1:C4 etc etc

And eventually i risk running out of columns because I'm working with a lot of text files.

Can someone tell me what to do to modify this code so it imports like this? :
text file1 A1:D1, txt file2 A2:D2, txt file3 A3:D3 ETC ETC

.e.g. first file imports across row1, second file across row2 etc


Sub test2()
Dim myDir As String, fn As String, ff As Integer, txt As String
Dim delim As String, n As Long, b(), flg As Boolean, x, t As Integer
myDir = "\BP1MELIS001SHARED_DATAEVERYONESolutions IntranetPriceMasterlogs" '

I only need the number next to Posting Journal on line 3 (12686 in this case), the 3 digit number next to Class Total on line 11 (101 in this case), the Extended Cost Final Total and the Extended Retail Final Total (23.77 and 39.30 in this case)

because one of my staff members is currently opening each txt file and typing these figures into a spreadsheet!
