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?

Convert Csv Files To Tab Delimited Files
I would like to be able to execute a command line that will convert an Excel csv file to an Excel file that is TAB delimited. In other words, replace the comma delimiter with a TAB delimiter without having to open the file in Excel. I am an inexperienced Excel user
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 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.
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, Edit, Save Macro - Various Files
i've got the code below, and if you notice the directory and file line, I want a loop that'll do what the macro below does, but also for files j1k2-j1k200. I'm hoping there's a macro that'll be able to do this, as I don't want to have to copy, paste and edit the same macro below 200 times!

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.
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.

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

Proceed Data And Save In Different Files

DFG | 3245 | Bad |
IUR | 8950 | Moderate |

(could be >100 entries under 20 companies)
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.
'Procucedure that will run all validation processes and error checking on extracteds spreadsheets

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.
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.

Printing Multiple Excel Files - Asks Me To Save Every Time
I'm trying to print out multiple excel sheets in which it asks me if I want to save the changes or not every time. I have macro settings set to low so I always accept the macros, if I don't have them set to low I'm always asked the question of whether or not I want to run the macro for over 20+ files. Anyone ever had similar problems when printing multiple files?
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.
Save As Macro :: Save File To Folder

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.
Conflict Between Auto Save&close Macro And Show/hide Sheets Macro
I am trying to make a save&close workbook macro.
I found several examples on google, but unfortunatly it conflicts with another macro I use for forceing users to enable macros (hide all sheets except one if macros are disabled).
The attached file is an example contaning the save&close code and the show/hide sheets depending on macros enabled.
If the file is opened with macros disabled then only one sheet will be visible.
If the file is opened with macros enabled other sheets are visible.
The problem if that this code uses a custom save, witch makes the save&close not save... (in module1 and in ThisWorkbook)
The pourpose of the save&close is to make sure some users don't forget the excel open and thus block access to it. So if a certain idele time passes excel has to save and close without any confirmation messages.

Macro Will Not Save
when I record a macro in excel and assign it to a command button, it does not save and have to keep recording it when I open up the workbook again. I notice when i close out of the script editor after saving, the debugger box does not pop up when on most occassions it does.
This does not happen all the time, just some of the time which makes absolutely no sense to me. I have double checked to make sure the module is saved under the current workbook, i have tried saving the script to my personal macro workbook (XLSTART), i have tried saving the file on a shared drive and my desktop, but nothing seems to work. The workbook is not protected and am at a complete loss.

Macro To Save As Txt
I work with a read-only template, and desperately need a macro that would save it as a workbook, and every worksheet of it as a separate txt file, then close the whole thing.

Macro To Save Only Some Changes
I have a 4 sheet workbook. 3rd and 4th are hidden running formulas. These hidden sheets have macros that creates a new file from each (the macros deleted unwanted rows in the files, then save as a seperate file and format [.mht and .csv respectively]). Everything functions properly, except the problem is, I need to make sure the changes to sheet 1 are saved, but when I save the file, the changes to 3 and 4 are saved, and I lose the formulas.
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".

Macro To Renames Files
I have several files in one folder. C:/data/
These files are named as date_xxxx.wk1. The date format is YYYYMMDD.
Everyday I need to rename them as date_cellvalueA1.xls where the date format is DDMMYY.
Cellvalue A1 is taken from each of the respective workbook.
As I need to rename them on a daily basis. Can I use 2 field, one to determine the directory path and one to determine what file name to search for.
If the files contain the YYYYMMDD, it will be rename to DDMMYY_cellvalueA1.xls
Open All Files With A Macro
If i have a folder with multiple csv files in it, all with different names can i get a macro to open all these files.
I know that i can if they are always the same name each time i run the macro but what i would like to do is to change the name of the csv files daily.
The reason is because i could have upto 50 different files a day.
So basically i'd like to click a button and open all the contents of the folder regardless of the name of the files inside.

Run Macro On All Files In A Directory
The title pretty much sums it up, actually. I have a macro, and a beautiful piece of work it is.

I'd like it to do this for ALL the files in a particular directory (somewhere over 500 files, if that matters).
Open PDF Files Via Macro
How can I code a Macro in Excel to search in a preset directory and pull out, aka open/run a certain Adobe Acrobat .pdf file automatically? Is this even possible to code in Excel Macro or is it out of its scope of what Excel VB code can do?
Right now I have a very repetitive task where depending on the value of a certain field in Excel I have to search for the right/corresponding .pdf file and open it up do work in the .pdf as well as the Excel worksheet... I have to do like hundreds of this. So is there a quick way to code in Excel that a certain value will open a certain file named .pdf acrobat file? Can other programs/files be called upon and ran/started/opened from within Excel Macro?
Tab Delimited Formatting
i have a tab delimited file that desperately needs cleaning up.
i would like this:
