Search For & Merge List Of Text Files Named In Worksheet And Paste In A Specifc Cell

Aug 20, 2006

I did a search for " import text" and found some promising leads, but not exactly what I was looking for. I have tried running macros and looking at the code but don't know how to pass the file names from the the D47:D147 range to VBA(see below). I saw elsewhere that Excel can be told to create a temporary batch file, and that the batch file with the command "copy text1.txt+text2.txt+text3.txt all.txt" for example could be used to merge the 3 text files into a file called all.txt. I don't however know how specify the path where copy starts, to tell the batch file to look in subdirectories or to pass the file into Excel. I've posted this question yesterday to Yahoo Answers http://tinyurl.com/omers and http://tinyurl.com/rfww9 without much luck.

Below is the macro I would like:I have text files whose names are found in the range D47:D147 although without the appended ".txt" extension. The sheets can only contain one name sometimes, but on average 8 to 10, so in the average case only cells D47:D56 would have entries.The text files are found in the say H:Textfiles directory or subdirectories.I would like Excel to find these files, concatenate them with a row between each file, and paste the results into cell K251.Finally, the text import wizard should be used with a space as a delimiter and the last 3 columns (it's sometimes only 2) of the concatenated file, not imported.

Search For Files Containing Specific Text In Cell

Jan 2, 2009

I cannot find Excel files that contain specific strings. For example, if I create a new file, and in the first cell type in "123456". Then save the file to the folder c:Temp Then in Windows Explorer, right-click on C:Temp and select "Search . . ." Then under "A word or phrase in the file", type in: 123456
It will NOT find the file! It will find a txt file or a doc file, but not xls files.

I thought maybe it fails because that is a number. But I have hundreds of Excel files with Integer numbers stored in "General" format cells and I desperately need to be able to search them to see which files contain certain numbers. It all started with some files that were sent to me - they work PERFECTLY for searching cells for numbers. So strange - yet if I open the file then save it . . . no changes or edits at all, just Open and Save. . . then the search fails for all numbers in that file. This is so perplexing that I have placed 2 zip Sample files on my website for you to Download: http://www.infocellar.com/Samples.zip

Unzip the two files to any folder. One is named "Sample-Works.xls" - Then do a Windows Search for any number in the file, here is one to try that is in the two files: 174026 And it will list "Sample-Works.xls" but it will NOT list "Sample-Fails.xls", even though BOTH FILES ARE IDENTICAL! I copied the same file twice and then named them. The only difference is that I opened the file Sample-Fails.xls and then immediately Saved it, which as I stated earlier, makes it fail all Searches from that point forward.

Search Cell For Text String And Paste Text In Based On Finding?

Jun 29, 2014

I need to create a macro to do the following:

Search the activecell for a text string (a), and then either paste in text string (b) at the end of the cell if (a) is found, or text string (c) if (a) is not found.

For example, if the activecell has "AA/" in it, I want the cell to become "AA/01" (pasting in "01" at the end), and if the cell has just "AA" in it, I want it to still become "AA/01" (pasting "/01" at the end). The macro will be linked to a commandbutton.

I have a worksheet size roughly 100 * 400 cell. there is roughly 100 cells filled with RED color and with different value.

When i used FIND ALL format - RED, I can locate the cell location and the cell value. And I wish to copy these 2 info onto a new sheet so that on the new sheet, I can create a hyperlink and easily access to the location of the RED cell.

However, in FIND and REPLACE, i have a list of results on what I want. But i cannot copied the information out. So is there anyway to copy it out or to achieve what i want?

For eg.

Copy/Paste Cell To Named Range Named In Adjacent Cell

Sep 4, 2007

I have read post re this question but have not been able to answer my problem. I get the error message 'Application defined or object defined error' when running the code below. I should indicate the range counter currently indicated about 6,200 rows that this code will work on and the individual range names in the list of 6,200 rows are spread over at least 20 worksheets.

The code appears to be running but after some time it stops on the line of code 'Range(Cells(i, 1).Value) = Cells(i, 2)'.

Sub PopulateWithImportData()
Dim counter As Integer
counter = Sheets("Imported Data").Range("Counter")

Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Worksheets("imported data").Select
Range("a1").Select

i = 1
Do Until i = counter
Range(Cells(i, 1).Value) = Cells(i, 2)
i = i + 1

Search Keyword In Worksheet / Copy And Paste Adjacent Cells To New Worksheet

Sep 24, 2012

I've been tackling this data capture/paste issue for a week or so. I found the string below which does provide a good foundation for my challenge. But, my basic level of understanding macros limits my modifications to meet my needs.

[URL] ......

I have 20 worksheets in my master file corresponding to Excel files individual associates will update weekly. After the associates have updated their individual files for the week, I want to capture the data entered and paste values into a master file containing a worksheet for each associate (sharing the same name as the individual associate file). All of these files are housed on team SharePoint sites.

I need a macro to perform several steps after clicking a "Run Update" macro button in the master file:
Open individual associate fileIn master file, search for each Initiative listed in column B (starting cell B3) in the individual associate file (in column B starting at cell B11)If Initiative is found in individual associate file, copy adjacent data in columns D:J for the respective rowIn master file, paste values to the corresponding Initiative row for the corresponding week's worth of dataIf Initiative is not found in the individual associate file, move to the next Initiative listed in the master fileRepeat these steps for each individual associate file

Linking would be the easiest way to accomplish this if I wanted to have a multitude of weekly individual files for the associates. However, I'd rather each associate have one file for them to update (basically overwriting their previous week's entries).

I need to ensure the paste values corresponds to the appropriate day of the week. In simpler terms, if the date in the individual associate file in cell D9 reads Oct 1, 2012, the data captured from that row needs to be pasted to the corresponding row/column in the master file that reads the same date.

Copy Data From Cell In One Worksheet, Add Text, And Paste To Cell In Another Sheet

May 14, 2009

I have the following code in another workbook that is used to populate a cell on the same sheet based on input to cells in column 'A'.

Is it possible to modify this for the attached workbook to select a cell with data (numbers) on the Input Data sheet in column 'E', add text to the beginning, ('CG' in this case), and paste the result to the Import Template in the corresponding cell of column 'A'? I currently have a formula copied to dozens of cells in 'A' but since the number of rows for the Input Template is variable, there are usually cells in 'A' that contain CG but no corresponding data in the rest of the row.

Search, Cut, And Paste Into New Worksheet

Feb 3, 2010

with a macros to search for a certain value through an input box, and once that value is found, I need its corresponding row to be cut and pasted into the next available row in its corresponding sheet, and then the remainging rows to be shifted up.

For example, in column B of sheet 1, I have trap ID's. I need an input box that will search for the 'trap ID' that I enter, and then cut that row and paste it into its corresponding sheet. I will have numerous other sheets with different titles, so I was hoping to add the sheet to transfer the row to in the inputbox. I have found and modified a code, but cannot quite figure out what im doing wrong. I have attached my current code.

List Files & Directories In Worksheet

Mar 20, 2008

I found this nifty program on[url]but there is a problem with it and it's down to the types of files I'm trying to list on my PC.

The excel code below lets you select a starting directory and it will then produce a list of files in a sheet. However when it comes across an internet shortcut file it gets rather confused and won't display the name of the shortcut but what the shortcut stands for. This causes an issue when I try and get some details about the file (eg date, size etc.) as a 'permission denied' error can then occur if it links to a file that is currently in use. For some reason I can't attach an example of a shortcut / internet shortcut so please feel free to make one at your end. eg. I have a shortcut called 'ImageJ' which links to a web address [url]. The code below then reports this address instead of the file name 'ImageJ'. Can any one suggest how to amend this coding to handle this issue?

There are some areas that dont have groups, such as there might be group 1, group 2, and then nothing till group 10 (as shown in the example)

Worksheet From Text Files

Dec 11, 2009

Hi all, first up I'm a total novice but I'm trying to populate a worksheet from a text file, but here's the kicker, I'd need specific lines of the text file to populate specific columns.

None of the text files will contain the same data, but, they will all have the same related data on the same lines. So I'd like to see:

.txt file 1 line 1 > Worksheet A:1
.txt file 1 line 6 > Worksheet B:1
.txt file 1 line 12 > Worksheet C:1

.txt file 2 Line 1 > Worksheet A:2
.txt file 2 Line 6 > Worksheet B:2

etc.

Everything needs to go into the same worksheet. Some .txt files won't have any data in the specified lines so skipped if blank, or just blank data copied.

I need to run through about 1300 .txt files in a directory in this fashion, can it be done?

Add Cell Content Into Formula Command In Another Cell For Multiple Files Search

Apr 12, 2014

How to determine the correct formula for this requirement?

Assuming I have 2 individual excel files and an index excel file (in reality, there are more than hundreds of file). For index excel, once the user enter part number (eg. 1 or 2), the excel will look for the part number excel file and determine vlookup function.

The only problem I have here is I can not make the index file automatically add the part number shown on most left column into the required formula (replace the part number file section).

I tried use the indirect function but this require each file to be opened, which is not possible for actual use. I am looking for a function that can work in closed worksheet.
