Save Multiple Sheets As CSV Files
I will have about 20 excel spreadsheets that will need to be run through some data cleansing and validation than each one exported to a csv file (without the column headings on them), and saved as the same file name as the spreadsheet was. If there are errors in the validation process then the one that fails (row) will be copied to an error log spreadsheet. There will be multiple worksheets in the error log workbook (one for each of the spreadsheets – which I hope VBA can create). What I am doing so far is creating a loop that will run on all of the spreadsheets located within a folder.
'Procucedure that will run all validation processes and error checking on extracteds spreadsheets

Dynamically Get Data From Many CSV Files Onto Different Sheets Of Workbook
There is a folder which contains some CSV files. These CSV files are updated say every 5 mins. By updations, I mean new data is appended to these CSV files, keeping old ones. Desire:
1. I want to have one master workbook which will have all of the CSV files in the folder as different sheets in the master workbook.
2. The master workbook sheet should be updated as soon as the corresponding CSV is updated.
Get the list of the CSV files from the directory. Open the CSV files, one after one and copy the newer data, by comparing to a marker that is updated after the new data is read.
Multiple Csv Files
I have a question about CSV files...I have to import about 80 csv files into excel as separate sheets in the same workbook. I can only get it to import into its own workbook. Is there a way to import all of them into the same workbook all at once?
Also, I am currently using csv files, but if what I want done can be done with a different file type, it doesn't matter.

Append Multiple Csv Files Into Master File?
I have about 100 csv files of the same format that I would like to append into a single master file. Order is not important for appending (I can do a column sort later) I can do copying and pasting, but this will take a long time especially because I will creating more master files from completely different CSVs in the future. Is there a faster way to append CSV files?
Data Import Automation - Multiple Csv Files
-I receive files everyday by email and saved in a folder C:TEST
-each file saved by name Name+daily date
•( like: sale_20091214, sale_20091215, sale_20091216 )
-file is in csv/Comma delimiated format
-each file have 7 columns A to G and contain 256 rows
-i only need 7 or 8 rows & only need value in Column 'F'
-the rows i need are going to be same each time
I want to save automated data in a file name: MonthlySale located in c:
Fore each ROW data should be saved in new column next to last saved column.
data from file sale_20091214 should be saved in column B,
sale_20091214 should be saved in column C,
sale_20091214 should be saved in column D and onward.
Split Data In Multiple CSV Files Based On Condition
I have a few CSV files that sits in a folder ie C:/Data and I want to split the data in those files into different sheets. Each of those files contains rows of data with an account number. For example, I have 3 files that contains transactions and they have accounts "Orange", Apple, pear, I want to put all transations with account apple together and all Orange transaction together etc etc.
Export Multiple Sheets To Csv Based On Time
I have found numerous entries for Saving Based on Time (which I'm using) and others for Exporting to CSV. But I'm not sure how to combine them or if it will do what I really want. I have a workbook with 6 tabs (each one with a name like "CODE_MEETINGS" or "CODE_CONTACTS"), I would like to export a COPY of each of them to their own CSV file and overwrite it each time. Basically, this will get me away from using the Save Based Ontime VBA in my master workbook, as David says, "it's not a good idea and can save errors." The problems I think I would have are:
1. I want one sheet per saved CSV file (using the name of the sheet/tab)
2. I need the top row (title fields) of each sheet removed (or I need to be able to set a selection per sheet)
3. I need it to be automatic without user intervention (when I save out manually, I get prompts about multiple sheets, features not supported and overwriting).
Right now my code for just autosaving is: workbook
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeClose(Cancel As Boolean)
On Error Resume Next
Application.OnTime dTime, "SaveMe", , False
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:15:00"), "SaveMe"
Search CSV Files For Word & Make .xls Files Of Them
I have 22 CSV files. I want to search each of those files for a specific text string (ie: "profile" or "description"). When the macro finds the word in any one of the CSV files I want it to copy that complete csv worksheet and paste it into an excel xls file.
how I can go about doing this. Not also that while vlookup is possible, its very time consuming if i have to do this 50 times over and each time the csv files have different file names. that is why i want to search within a file (each file has its own unique identifying text string)
Saving Comma Separated .txt Files As .csv Files

How Can I Merge Two CSV Files
I have two CSV's which are updated on a regular basis.
CSV Master - contains about 23,000 rows at the moment and will continue to grow.
CSV Master - does have a header row
CSV Master has unique (8 digit) numerical ID's in column A so all unique ID's start at "A2"
CSV Master - contains 31 columns ("A through to and including AE") this is a fixed figure.
---- Then I have ---
CSV Extras - generally contains about 200 rows and its unlikely it will ever be more but is contents are different every time it is used.
CSV Extras - does have a header row
CSV Extras has unique (8 digit) numerical ID's in column "A" so all unique ID's start at "A2" and these ID's are a common denominator with both sheets.
CSV Extras - contains 44 columns (last column is AR) which is a fixed figure,
CSV Extras - columns "B up to and including AE" are all intentionally all blank fields.
--- Hope that explains where I am, this is what I need to do ----
I need to be able to look up the ID's (that are in column A in both CSV's) and create a single CSV. In my mind that is a Vlookup of some sort but I can't get it to work
I want to open CSV Master and then, If the ID exists in CSV Extras then fetch all the data in columns "AF to AR" and add it to the CSV Master.
Opening CSV Files As Is

Creating CSV Files From Spreadsheet
I am trying to create CSV files from Excel spreadsheet for each tab. But when I convert these CSV files, text in cell is limiting to 255 characters, in otherwords it is getting truncated after 255characters. I am using Excel 2003 version.
And also when convereted these windows CSV files to UNIX csv files using the command "DOS2UNIX", some charaters becoming special characters. For exmaple, I have the actual text as "If AEENDTC ne '' then do; " and is becoming "If AEENDTC ne æÆ then do; " Do you have any idea why it is doing this.
Csv Ranges - Active Files
I am trying to pull a selected range from a series of csv files, and copy them into a specific range in an excel workbook, do some caluclations, and repeat the process. My problem is that after I open the csv file, the program stops and does not pick up the selected range in the csv file. I tried to use a Windows().Activate command on the csv file to ensure that is is picking up the correct workbook , but the bug says teh subscript is out of range...I am sure I am doing something really stupid, and there is a simpler way of writing this but I can't figure it out.

Why Does Excel Open Some Files As Csv

Splitting *.csv Files Into Batches
I have a number of csv files with 30,000 - 60,000 records.
I'm looking for some code which will split them into batches of 250 record batches.
Each file id named FY838A, FY838B, FY838C etc.
I need something which will open the file then copy the first row (Field names), open a new book and paste the headers.
Then cut the first 250 records, rows 2:251 and paste them into the new book.
I then need to save them as a *.csv
All are named BatchFY838A (then B, C, D for each one)
Here's the main bit I can't figure out:
I would like to create a destination folder for each file.
I already have a main folder:
but when each file is created I need to make a folder for it to sit in:
(I need to create the FY838@ folder then the destination ones after that)
Until there are no records left to batch. i.e. the code needs to stop when it's completed the list (each one has a different amount of records)
Additional. Along with this I have 3 Word.doc's which need to be placed in each of the above folders, can I do this at the same time)
The end result is to be 3 Word.doc's and a *.csv file in each folder, this is for a huge Mail Merge which is already coded, so each files content will be 4 documents with exactly the same names.
Macro To Import From .csv Files
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".
Formatting Not Retained With CSV Files
1. Open notepad file. Type 01. Save it as "Book2.CSV". Close notepad.
2. Open Book2.CSV in excel
You will see that 01 is shown as 1.
I would like to retain 01 in Cell A1. How do I do this in CSV?
I know how to retain formatting in excel but not in CSV. You can do the following in Excel files:
In the cell A1, right click and choose 'Format Cells'. In the Number tab, choose the category as Custom. In the Type on the right hand side, I type in 00. The value 1 in the cell A1 gets converted to 01.
1. why is this formatting not retained with CSV files?
2. Is there a way to programmatically (macros) to correct this?
Importing CSV Files In A Worksheet
The Excel 2007 help menu claims that you can open a CSV file directly into a worksheet but I always get all the fields clumped-up into the first column.
After many tribulations I was able to import it through the Data import menu (text).
Could someone explain what I am doing wrong with the first method described above. It appears that the CSV converter is not working properly on my computer.
Save As CSV File (with Script)
I'm trying to write some script which will save a worksheet as a csv file. I can get it to create the csv, but the system requires that any text formatted values be enclosed by "". So I wrote a little script which adds the "" around text values prior to saving as csv. To my bewilderment, the result was text surrounded by 3 sets of "". So TEXT should be "TEXT" but came out """TEXT"""!
I've attached the original xls spreadsheet (Example Feeder.xls), the csv file produced by the main code below (Example Feeder.txt) and the csv prodcued by adding the code at bottom, which wraps all text values in "" prior to saving (Example Feeder (with quotes).txt).

CSV Files Open In New File Instance
I regularly process CSV files that are downloaded from various websites. The problem is, for some reason many (but NOT all) downloaded CSV files do not open in "Microsoft Office Excel" and thus, my primary workspace. They instead open in a separate instance of "Excel.exe" which is actually kinda nice because I can treat each separately, move windows around, etc. The problem is, macros that are in my primary workbook, cannot be seen by the secondary instance(s). So while I have created a number of nifty macros to clean up all the data and format it exactly how I want it in the blink of an eye, I can't run them when a file opens in its own instance.
1) How can I force ALL .csv files to open in the primary "Microsoft Office Excel" application? NOTE: Using the normal Windows Explorer "Open With..." function and setting the default application only works for LOCAL files, and does NOT work to control how remotely downloaded .csv files are opened.
2) How can I make it so that macros can be seen between Excel instances - such that when I choose to see macros in "all open workbooks", it will actually see the macros in the open workbook in the other primary Excel instance?
Automatically Convert Text Files To CSV
I have a lot of .txt files that needed to be converted to .csv file format. Right now I am doing it manually using MS Excel i.e. File > Open. For each file, I need to specify the length of each fields one by one, so it is quite an effort for me.
Is there any way to automate this process using MS Excel or any other existing programs?
Macro To Convert All Worksheets To Csv Files
1. I need your help in converting all the worksheets in a workbook to CSV format. Is it possible to do that with a macro?
2. I have 20 workbooks, each with 12 worksheets. I need to combine the data in all the workbooks to create a database. As I will not be
able to do that in Excel (due to the row limit), I am thinking of using MS Access.
Therefore I am planning to convert these excel files into CSV files and then use the CSV files to create an MS Access database.
Automatically Create Csv Files From Columns
I have an excel worksheet with data from A to T and the numbers of rows may change from use to use. I want to create a button/macro that determines where the data ends and will take the data from two columns, say column A and column D and put it in a new csv file.
In my final product, I would really like to be able to have a set of check boxes that say "Column D", "Column E", ... "Column T" and so if I check TWO boxes, say "Column D" and "Column T" and click create, it will output TWO csv files, one with Column A and Column D and the other with Column A and Column T.
CSV File To Save For Each Day Of The Month
I have searched the forum regarding copying data from multiple worksheets into a main workbook, but I did not find anything that tells me how to copy data from multiple csv files into one workbook tab, I can see a thread created by Hiport which is very similar to what I want.
I have a CSV file saved for each day of the month, these files are saved in their monthly folders, so all the CSV files for May will be saved in U:CustodiansInterestYearMonth(May2008), now in this folder will also be a master workbook called “Interest-May2008”.
What I do next is very manual, I have to copy from each CSV file, data from Col 1 and Col2 and paste this to the master workbook- sheet (downloads), all the data will be pasted next to each other, i.e. col 1 and 2 will be data for 01-May-08, and col 3 and 4 will have data for 02-May-08 etc, as you can see it’s a very daunting task having to go through each file and copy and paste.
I need a macro written so it copies data in col 1 and 2 in each csv file and then pastes that data in a master workbook sheet (downloads), the data will be in date order of the CSV files, I want the data pasted in row 3 of the master workbook (downloads).
Save One Worksheet As A .CSV File With Macro
So I am trying to design a workbook that has two worksheets... one with instructions and a button for users to click to "Save as .CSV File", another for the data that will go into that CSV file.
Here are the Macro requirements:
1. The user will be prompted for the File & Location to save the .CSV file
2. If they click 'Cancel', no changes will be made (and unlike my current code, it won't ask them to debug).
3. Confirmation of the filename is not necessary even though it's currently included in my Macro
4. The file will automatically "reopen" so that they only see the new .CSV file without the original Instruction tab.

Save Workbook As CSV Macro Code
I want is a Macro that will save the file as .csv, with the same filename and location as the original (just in csv format). A hotkey would be quite handy for this. I tried using the macro recorder and fiddled around with the code a bit but my programming knowledge is quite limited and I ended up with something that doesn't quite work as i'd like. I'm sure this would only take a few seconds to code for an experienced user, which is why I post here. I would post my attempt at doing it myself but i'm on a computer that doesn't have excel at the moment.

Links To CSV Files, Find And Replace Not Working
I have a large spreadsheet that has links to CSV files. Every month I need to create a new folder and put the CSV files into that folder, all the CSV files from month to month have the same name for each worksheet.
I'm trying to do Find and replace on the Folder name within the links to change say, February to March so I can just add the CSV files for each month and the spreadsheet will link to the new CSV file in the folder.
I have even tried adding all the February CSV's to the March folder so that when I overwrite the CSV's it will update the master spreadsheet, but it keeps asking me where to look for the folder.
Here is an example of a link:
='\FileservermsbilBRANCH REPORTSBM ReportsFebruary[TItemToDispense@40186 Export Dispensed Item Data-00.CSV]TItemToDispense@40186 Export Di'!BM2
As you can see the folder is named February within the link and I need to replace it with March.
