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.

Open Large Txt 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).

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??

Ignore A Super Script

Mar 16, 2009

I am using the vlookup function to pull in values from another sheet that I will call sheet2. I am using a cell reference for the lookup value on sheet1.

On sheet1, the value in the reference cell has a superscript "1" that corresponds to a footnote at the bottom of the page. The corresponding lookup value on sheet2 does not have any superscript. Is it possible to make the vlookup function ignore the superscript for the purpose of the lookup?

Opening Large File

I have a 14.3 MB xlsb file that I am trying to open with no success as it just hangs. Anyone have any ideas on how to get the data out of there? I would like to be able to get the data to a pivot and copy the pivot to another file to try and reduce the load on one file. I tried to import to Access but was told I was using a file version before 2007, which is impossible since it is a xlsb file.

Check To See If File Is Open, And If It Is Open, Activate It

May 14, 2009

I have two workbooks. One is a no-nonsense form interface that my bosses will use to enter safety information. I'll call this workbook "Form". This file is stored locally on each of their computers. The other workbook is stored on a common drive. I'll call it "Master".

When my bosses fill out the Form and click "Submit", the Master file is opened, and certain cells are populated based on information entered in the Form. This is the code I am using to make this happen:

Get Open File Name To Open Multiple Files

Jul 3, 2007

I'm doing the following:

Dim myname As String
myname = Application. GetOpenFilename

I use it to attempt to open first a QuickBooks file and then an excel workbook.
The Quickbooks file opens fine. The Excel workbook never appears to open but
I do get the full file pathname to my excel workbook returned which I then
parse off to get just the workbook name.

Why would it behave this way? I open both these files manually all the time.

Also, I'm trying to use a filter as follows:

myname = Application.GetOpenFilename("*.QBW")

I get a compile error saying that I'm calling the function wrong.

Excel File Too Large To Work

Lookup Data From Large Csv File

Jan 21, 2010

I want to use the attached Test.xls file below and do a lookup from the Data.csv (see zip file) where "Empl ID" (column A in Test.xls) matches "ID" (column A in Data.csv). I want to bring back "SupvID" (column B in Data.csv) into column D in Test.xls.

The problem I have is that in real life Data.csv is a very large file and contains more than Excel's maximum number of rows. I want to automate this using VBA to lookup the values without opening the csv file.

I have looked at a number of forums for answers and I can see where using an ADO connection will probably help accomplish this, but I can't seem to get it to work on these specific files.

Compressing Large Pivot Table File

Jun 7, 2013

My pivot table file is currently 12.7 MB and I need to get it much smaller so I can email it and it still be functional with the data.

I have tried right clicking on the pivot table, going to PivotTable Options, clicking on the data tab, unchecking the 'save source data with file' box, and checking the 'refresh data when opening file' box. This shrunk the file perfectly but when i email the file the Pivot Table was unusable because there was no data to back up the function.

The Error messages I got were 'Cannot open PivotTable source file'..... and 'Pivot Table report was saved without the underlying data. Use the Refresh Data command to update the report'. When I click on Refresh Data I still get the same error message.

Any way I can make this File smaller and still functional.

Splitting A Large File Into Two And Mining The Data

Apr 17, 2008

I've been scouring the Internet for a few days now trying to get a macro working with varying degrees of success. It's driving me mad and I'm really hoping that someone out there can help me out. I'm trying to write a macro that will ...

1. Take a .xls file

2. Split the file in two

3. Take cells B2:B11 and paste them in to a csv file (to be called Upload1.csv) using the rows as column headers (i.e. B2:B11 now become A1:J1)

4. Take cells A13-J13 downwards (this file will have different numbers of rows each time it's generated) and paste them into a different csv file (to be called Upload2.csv) populating all the rows (except all rows in column I which are to be left blank) and all rows in Column J which are to contain the info in cell B7 of the original document.

5. In cell B11 of the original document I must only take the information that says MyAddress:xxxxx and discard all the other info

6. I must also loop through the second document until I find the words Total and copy everything UNTIL that row into the new document.

I know this probably sounds pretty awkward but in practice it's not that difficult to understand, it's probably the way that I've explained it

So far I've managed to take the original document and split it, populate both CSV files but I'm having problems with looping the macro until it sees the word Total and discards it and also populating the appropriate rows with the info from B7 ... I don't know how to make it populate only the rows that have info on them.

I've attached the original Excel file that is generated and also my attempt at the 2 csv files. I've also written in RED what needs to go where in each document.

Locate CSV File With Open File Msgbox And Import Columns From CSV To Worksheet

Oct 28, 2011

Actually i've downloaded Tracking report of my SPO and this report is on 4-5 csv files (1 file per week). I have to gather data from these 4 files into one Worksheet. I have to do this with command button on my worksheet; with Open file dialogue box (i want to locate the csv files).

CSV files are something like that (I need only first 4 columns):

ABCDE1Name MSISDN Date Location MapLink 2M. Younus Safi "923***550577" "2011-10-07 20:36:18" "ACB Tower Badragah Chakwal. Badraga" "http://asdf.com" 3M.

and my Worksheet is like that (With a command Button):

I want to import first 3 columns of csv file on first 3 columns on my worksheet; leave 2 columns blank and then import the 4th column... now for example i have done importing data from 1st csv file and the data is on 50 rows.. i click the command button again, locate the 2nd csv file.. do the same thing (import 1st 3 columns, 2 blank, then 4th) --from 51st Row-- and so on...

Macro To Open File Saved In Same Location But File Name Changes With Each Date

Feb 8, 2013

I do routine tasks every day which involves opening 3 different files and pasting data into my main file. The data is always in the same format, and the 3 files are saved in the same location (3 different folders through). The 3 files are saved each day and the naming convention is constant, with only the date changing. For example, the files are always saved in C:My Documents and the files are called test_05.02.2013.xls. Tomorrow the file will be called test_06.02.2013.xls and so on.

So each day I will be rolling a file forward and I want to bring in the info from each of these files based on the new day.

How to do 1, and I will do the others (because the concept will be the same).

Drop-down Boxes Make File Size Too Large

Aug 31, 2009

I'm using Excel 2007. I have a cell with a dropdown box that has the values 1 thru 10. When I save the file (as an Excel 97-2003 compatible .xls file), it's 17kb which is normal. I want multiple dropdown boxes going down the same column, so that every time the user goes to the next row, another dropdown box will be displayed. I copied the cell with the dropdown box, selected the entire column, and pasted the dropdown box.

This time when I save the document, it's over 2MB in file size. I've seen other spreadsheets with several columns of dropdown boxes spanning thousands of rows and they stay under 30kb. I don't know what they did differently to keep their file size small. Why is my file size so large and how do I fix this? Do I need to use a 'paste special' function?

Open Excel File Based On Date In File Name That Is From One Day Before

I need to open an excel file based on a date mentioned in the file name, but minus 1 day. The file name is composed with Statistics_date_time.xls

This will be a part of a macro I'm making. The rest of the macro will just format the file and combine a few ones from different departments.

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.

Open File Macro, Error - Incrementing File Name

When it opens the desired file, it increments the file name by 1 each time it is opened (via the macro).

Example;
The first time it is opened you see the file name in the header read "P'Binder L&T Pages" for a moment, then it changes to "P'Binder L&T Pages1"...
I close the file and open it again (via the macro), and see the file name in the header read "P'Binder L&T Pages" for a moment, then it changes to "P'Binder L&T Pages2"...
The file name continues to increment on every opening until the PC is rebooted, then it starts at 1 again.

AlreadyOpen = False

Excel 2013 :: Saving Large Multiple Worksheet File

I have an Excel file that's updated monthly. when it does save its around 16mb and can take up to 12 hours to save, and sometimes just doesn't.

I have tried saving as binary, I have made sure exact size of area to be saved is required, I have tried save with no calculations.

Basically the only reason I need to save it is so that another analysis spreadsheet can pull data from it. The file is heavily formatted, charts, vlookup tables etc, none of which is needed when analysis spreadsheet links to it.

Excel Only Shows Small Fraction Of Rows In Large File?

Jun 26, 2013

I have a file that has been produced using Statistica software. The file is supposed to have around one million rows, and when exported to Excel the file is about 30 MB. When I open the .xlsx file in Excel 2010 only two pages of data appear. The rows also have weird numbering. The first square of the A column is A1. The second is A3833, the third is A6789, then A8161, then A8162, then A8163, then A8164, then A18070.

The scroll button to the left of the screen is long, as if the document was only two pages long. When the scroll button is click-and-dragged a small beige square appears with a row number. This small square seems to be aware that not all rows are shown as it shows many more rows than are visible to me.
