Save As Macro :: Tab Delimited Files
I use a macro that saves my activesheets in text(tab delimited).
I am trying to find how to save my worksheets as tab delimited files without having to open the notepad later, in order to press the backspace button. Just to clarify more, if a sheet has 15 rows of data, the tab delimited file will be created with 16. Is there a way to save the actual number of rows in the text file or this is a default operation in excel that cannot be changed in any way?

Save As Text With Unicode And Tab Delimited
In my excel file I have chinese and some other special characters and many cells have text with commas.
My problem starts when I try to save my file as a Text.
When I Save As with the Unicode option I can see the chinese characters in my text file but also I see a lot of quotes """ because I have commas in my xls file.
When I Save As with Tab Delimited option to solve the comma problem, the chinese characters become?
It seems that cannot be possible to do it manually cause there is no option to Save As with Unicode and Tab option together.
So I would deeply appreciate someone could give me a solution with VBA code to save my file as Text with Unicode and Tab Delimited option.
Save AS Tab Delimited File For SAP
I'm trying to create a excel sheet with macros that will generate a tab delimitd file which is a journal voucher and I want to upload that .txt file to our financial system (SAP). When I create a tab delimited file manually, that is I enter all the values in excel and save as .txt it works great. But I have created a spreadsheet where the useres (all employees on the financial departement) enter the info required. I have a macro validating that all fields are correct and so on.. When they are finished they sedt the spreadsheet to me (an excelfile) via email, this is done by a submit buttom(macro) and the I have a hidden sheet in the worksheet which gets all the values that are necessery and then I create my tab delimited file using the well known save as fileformat=xltext macro. But SAP will not accept this file. I get error messages as convertion erros in line 4 column 6 and so on. The sheet which is saved as .txt is 100% with formulas, it gets all the value from another sheet(sheet1). I use the formula =IF(Sheet1!$E17=0;"";Sheet1!E17) in the cells with E17 changing to whatever cell is required. What can be wrong here? May it be that all the formulas (columns A to H and row 2 to 1001) somehow mix it all up and even to the cell is empty is the formula is somehow hidden in the .txt file and that messes it all up??

Open All Txt Files (delimited Tab Comma ) In A Folder
I have around 30 files each quarter which I need to convert from a text file to an excel spreadsheet. I am a beginner with VBA and am looking for generic code I can use for a macro to:
1. open a text file from a folder
3. format columns H, O, and AH into dates
4. 'leave a spot for me to insert my code to manipulate the data'
5. save the file as an excel spreadsheet to a folder with the same filename
6. loop to perform this task to all files in a folder and stop after the last file.
The dilemna I am having is that my text files do not have a suffix ".txt" after them.
They just have the file name ***MMDDYYYY. There are always 3 initials at the beginning which change for each file i.e. ABC06302009.
The date remains the same for the given quarter, i.e. ***06302009. Next quarter I will have to do this same thing for all files ***09302009.

Saving Sheet As Tab Delimited Text
I have a workbook with sheets of data that should be imported into another system. So i would like some code that does the following:
1.) make a copy of worksheet x and paste (paste special) the values in a new worksheet.
2.) Delete row 1 in new worksheet (the labels)
3.) Ask the user for a file name and path and save the worksheet as a tab delimited txt file.
4.) Delete the worksheet created in 1.)
5.) Leave the user with the original .xls file
I will assign this macro to a button so the experience for the user is:
1.) press button
2.) input file name and location and have a text file saved
3.) be left in the original xls document.
I tried with the following code but get stuck with this error : "Run-time error 91: Objeck variable or with block variable not set."

Tab Delimited Data From Web Page
I am trying to use VBA to manage invoice generation via an online service. The service is set up in such a way that the process cannot be made completely automatic, but I am trying to reduce it to as few manual steps as possible. Hence I am opening the Web Browser control in an Excel userform to streamline and guide the user's process. The invoice is generated as a Tab-delimited TXT file. I don't want to save the file to disk, and selecting 'Open' opens the file as a web page, rather than in Notepad or Excel.
One way or another this data needs to be transferred to a hidden Excel worksheet for further processing. So I am trying to devise a way to copy the data from the web page and paste it onto the Excel worksheet. Here is the relevant code from within the Web Browser's class module:
If URL Like "https://www.fedex.com/FedExMMA/downloadcenter.do*" Then
Application.Wait Now + TimeValue("00:00:01")
SendKeys "^a^c", False
Application.Wait Now + TimeValue("00:00:01")
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet3").Paste Destination:=ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet3"). Range("A1")
The "^a^c" (control-A, control-C) part works correctly; if I interrupt the code at that point I can open Notepad and directly paste the invoice data. But pasting into Excel fails in a way that has me baffled. Instead of the invoice it pastes the previous contents of the clipboard; for instance the invoice number that I copy and paste in an earlier step. I can even run the code as written above, see the invoice number pasted into Excel, and directly open Notepad, type Control-V, and have the actual invoice pasted into Notepad! It is as if Excel's paste function accesses different clipboard data from other applications. So my brief question is: How do I get the data into Excel? The longer question is: Is there some step I have missed that specifies to Excel what clipboard data to paste?
Macro Not Working Except In One Tab, Must Save And Reopen To Work In Others.
I have a wierd issue. I have this macro for a workbook i use and if i run the macro in the first tab it runs and works fine. When i select the other tab and run it it gives me a debug error. If i close the worksheet save it and reopen it and run it in the other tab it runs fine.
So in otherwords i have to run the macro in the tab desired, save it , and always close and reopen the file to run it in the other tabs. I know the code is correct because it runs flawlessly without errors but i must be missing something.
Also i currently have the macro to run on the active tab/worksheet. Can i have it run on multiple tabs? i have 15 20 and 30 tabs in this example file but in my real file i have many more milage intervals ( some tabs i would not want to select ). It gets tedious having to select one tab at a time, run the macro, rinse and repeat.
For Example Run Macro First, in the first tab. It works perfectly. Go to the second tab and run the first macro. It gives a debug error. If you save the file and reopen it and go to teh second tab and run the macro again it works.
Tab Delimited File Saves Commas As Dot
I'm using Excel 2000 swedish version, that is we use comma to seperate decimals not dot. I have a macro that saves a sheet as .txt file (tab delimited). However in the sheet (journal voucher) I need to enter a couple of numbers all with 2 decimal, that is 5 is 5,00 and so on. But then, when I save the sheet to a .txt file using a macro all the commas are saved as dots and since I'm importing the file to SAP it will not accept the dots. Is there some way ( changes in macro) I can prevent the commas from becoming dots when I save the .txt file?
The save macro is the commomly used

Transposing Delimited Text Files
I am working with Excel 2003 which has a limit of 256 columns. I often import text files into excel using a very simple macro. I specify the text file's name and location in a cell and then run the macro - it opens the text file, copies the data and pastes it into the worksheet, then delimiting the columns using the semi-colons that seperated the data in the original text file.
However, I now have a text file that would convert into excel as around 1,000 columns and about 20 rows. This obviously causes a problem since my limit is 256 columns in Excel 2003.
Is there any way that Excel can transpose my data when it brings it into the spreadsheet from the text file so that I end up with 20 columns and 1,000 rows? Ideally I'd do this in VBA and add the code onto my existing little macro

Open Txt Files Delimited, Space
On a daily basis I open about 35 text files in Excel at one time, and then must responde to 35 dialog boxes:
"This file is not in a recognizable format" - I click OK
"Delimited or Fixed Width (default)" - I change to Delimited
"Delimiters listed with Tab as default" - I change to Space
I go through that 35 times. I don't save these files that I have opened, but once they are all open I paste each one in a separate worksheet in one workbook.
Can I at least change the defaults on these text boxes to Delimited, Space? That way I would just need to click on OK, then Finish for each file.
I am using Excel 2000.
VBA Macro To Follow Hyperlinks & Save Files To Another Location
I am attempting to write an Excel macro that will be stored in a file called MacroFile. The purpose of the macro is to
1. Follow a hyperlink to an Excel file saved in a SharePoint type enviroment
2. Save the file to my laptop directory My Documents.
Below is the code I have written. The code is following the hyperlink and saving a file but is the focus file is incorrect.
Here is what happens:
1. Open up MacroFile and run macro
2. Hyperlinked file LinkedFile_1.xls is opened
3. File NewFile_1 is saved but contains the info from MacroFile
4. Hyperlinked file LinkedFile_2.xls is opened
5. File NewFile_2 is saved but contains the info from LinkedFile_1
6. Hyperlinked file LinkedFile_3.xls is opened
7. File NewFile_3 is saved but contains the info from LinkedFile_2

Create Workbooks & Save-Name By Sheet Tab Names
Every month I work on an audit that has data from 35 different distributors. I have code below that puts each distributors audit/sales information on a new tab and each new tab is given the distributors name. This also creates a new workbook for each distributor.
When the new workbooks are created, how can I name each workbook with the distributor name it's being created for? Is it possible to predefine a file path to where these new workbooks will be saved?
The distributor names I'm using are in column AF.

We need to group the above data by company, copy it into a new file, and send it to respective company...
Any macro can serve this purpose? Save .xls to a location named by company name will be perfect as we'll send the files by mail merge to email with attachment.
In addition, the headers need to be included in the new files too...
Save Files Directly From Hyperlink
I have a large number of webpages represented by live hyperlinks in a worksheet. I need to save the webpages either as html or prefereably as text files. My current option is to save the worksheet as a html file, open the saved html file in Opera and manually right click and save these webpages to the download folder. This will save the webpage without opening it in a new window or tab.
I would like to write a macro that automatically moves vertically from cell to cell and saves the webpage without opening a browser and requires no user interaction.
I need to know the commands to have the macro read the hyperlink in the cell, got to the website and save it to a location on the local hard drive using a differently numbered filename (file1.txt, file2.txt etc)
There is no problem if a webbrowser needs to open and close as long it is done automatically and controlled by the excel macro.

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.

Save Workbook Of Imported Text Files As .xls
I am using the following code to import a number of text documents into the same workbook, on seperate sheets and then to save the workbook as an excel file. the problem is that when the file tries to save (red section) I get a message telling me that Excel can not save the workbook in the requested format, I think because it is still trying to save them as text files rather than as an excel workbook. When I try to save manually, selecting .xls as the format it works fine, but I would really like this to be part of the macro to ensure the WB is saved.

Open Multiple Files, Check Current Month & Save To New Location
I have 40 files in one folder which I named it as "CA" + month's name that I am working on. I need to do analyse these files monthly and save it under new folder. how do I automatically save them in new folder and name them for that particular month. Also, each file has worksheet which has one cell as "Aug-07" and the cell next to it has number of that month that is "08". How do I automatically change this also based on the name of the file, because file name month and month in the cell are the same.
Open/Update Linked Files, Convert To Values & Save To New Folder
I have a number of spreadsheets in a folder called country (each sheet is the name of a region). These sheets are linked to another sheet called master which is in another folder.
The regional sheets all have a list of wrap codes and pull details specific to each code from the master sheet. All wrap codes for all sheets are stored in the master, details for wrpas are manually entered here as well as any other associated information.
The link is kept by way of an index match formula used to populate information from the master for all wrap codes in the regional sheet.
Each of the regional sheets act as a report for a specific region and the master is the main source. Every week we need to open the regional sheets (some reside in different folders/subfolders) update the index match formulas in the sheet so that the data is refreshed and then save as a new file with data as values to another folder for reporting.
I am looking for a code that can automatically update all of the excel sheets in a given folder and then save them to a new folder automatically.
I have very very limited knowledge of VB (did make a hello world dialog box once) and am stuck as to any way to automate this process.
Macro To Save, Save As With Sequential Name
My spreadsheet has 32 worksheets, I've recorded a macro to do the job "save, save as with specific name", but what I want is, when save as, I wanted the file name increase in one number, and the date in a specific range "H8:J8" the date should be the next saturday.
here is part of the code.
on this example I want the file saved as "PrA4W05.xls", being the next week "PrA4W06.xls", and so on.
and on "H8:J8" the next saturday.
Write Ranges To Text Files & Save Each As Cell Text
I m trying to write a macro which could take the text from a single column row T2 to row T313 and write it to a .txt file. Have the .txt file name created by the text in T4 or I could also put the text to name the file in T1 if you think it would be easier.
Then carry on to the next named sheet and produce another .txt file in exactly the same way until all 15 sheets have been completed. It would also be helpful if prior to starting to write each text files, it could test for any text in cell A2 of the sheet. The first empty A2 cell of a sheet would determine the end of the run, if it was prior to sheet 15 being reached.
Count & Rename Files & Save Each To Array
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 Not Work On Another Tab
To run a macro from the first tab of the workbook but have it do it work on another tab.
In the workbook in question I have a tab called "input" were certain information in updated and is linked or used in formulas on other tabs. Some of the tabs have macros that do various functions. I would like to set up one macro button on the "input" tab that would run the macros on the other tabs instead of having to run each one individually from its own tab.
Below is on of the macros that I would like to run from the "input" tab and have it update the "AP Accrual" tab
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=EOMONTH(Input!RC,-1)"

Put Geometric Averages Of Each Column From Each Tab In A Summary Tab
I have multiple sheets each containing multiple columns of numbers, and sometimes when the numbers are not present there is a text error string such as "#N/A N.A.", or "#N/A N Ap". An example of the data is as follows:
I would like to put geometric averages of each column from each tab in a summary tab.
* I tried using =GEOMEAN(...), but it can not handle the quantity of data that I have nor can it take non-numeric fields.
* Also Tried something like this =EXP(AVERAGE(IF(ISNUMBER(C:C),LN(C:C)))) as an array, but unless cells are specified explicitly, ie c10:c300, I get an answer of 1. I can not specify the cells because I have a variable height of each column.
Copy/Paste From Tab Macro
I tried writing a macro to copy data from one tab and paste it on another. It gave me an error message every time.
So I tried recording one doing just that, and when I went to play it, it still gave me an error.
