Select And Import Delimited Data File (ERA)

Feb 27, 2012

I need to summarize some data from multiple files but I can't seem to have the user select the file and import it.

It's a ERA(electronic remittance advice) 835 file that will import with the "Import Text File" routine. I've added the "GetOpenFileName" to it but apparently have not appropriately adjusted my "QueryTable.Add" routine.

I removed the .Refresh Backgroundquery:=False line as this was causing an error and this not SQL data.

The desired files have names like this: C123456.835.EDIPROCESSERPROCEEDED

My simpleton code reads:

Sub IMPORT_835()
' IMPORT_835 Macro
Dim InputFile As Variant

InputFile = Application.GetOpenFilename(Title:="Choose your file", _
FileFilter:="All Files (*.*), *.*")

[Code] ........

No data is imported, Why?

Import Text Dialogue/Wizard: Select File Once For Multiple Queries

Aug 7, 2006

I am importing a text file that has a lot more than 256 columns. The data will be updated weekly with a different text file. I know how to get past the 256 column limit when importing a text file like this. This link explains the method I am using to import the text file. [url] Since I am importing onto several sheets I get the dialogue box asking me to choose a file to import from for every sheet when I use RefreshAll. The same file that is used by the first sheet will be used by the rest of the sheets. Each sheet just imports a different section of columns from the text file. I want to avoid choosing the same file 30 plus times (once for each sheet) when I click refresh all. Is there a code that would allow me to choose the file for the first sheet, and the other sheets would follow suite?

Import Comma Delimited Info In A Column

Mar 4, 2006

I have hundreds of email addresses listed in a Wordpad file- entries are
separated by a comma. When I use the Excel Import function, all data is
successfully imported into an Excel spreadsheet- BUT in a single row. I would
like to have this info in a single column (A)- then I could easily
alphabetize the entries and eliminate duplicates.

Convert Text Delimited File To .xls File Using Vba

Nov 28, 2008

how to word it but if someone understands then please help. I have two excel data files namely Book1.xls & Book2.xls. Both files have different data in it. Both files contain macros. When these macros run the files become **FINALIZED** version.

Originally, I get the above files in my email as txt. attachments. I then move these two txt files to my desktop in a folder called Folder-1. Then I open these files as an Excel and save them.

Basically, I need to know if two txt files are sitting in a folder-1 on my desktop. What can I do or what can I clik that....those two text files get converted into excel automatically, including running that macro I talked about in the above paragrah.

To put it differently, if I have two txt files Book1.txt, Book2.txt in a folder, how can I automatically create an excel **FINALIZED**version which sits right next to their txt version.

Import And Then Manipulate Data From Another File Automatically

May 6, 2009

I am working on a file that is going to import and then manipulate data from another excel file automatically. I would like this to be as smooth as possible and I am running into a problem. The file I am importing the data from is password protected, so I am opening it in read-only. Also, the file contains links to other excel files.

What I would like to do is indicate in the code to open the file in read-only format so that the user doesn't get a message box asking for the password. Also, is there a way to suppress the message box about updating the links? I have tried application.displayalerts = false but that didn't solve my problem.

Excel 2013 :: Cannot Import Data Into ASP File

Feb 5, 2014

I am using Excel 2013, and I am following the example here: VBScript Scripting Techniques: Read Excel files without using Excel that reads in Excel data as an ADO record set to a classic ASP file using VBScript. I am not able to import all the Excel data successfully, and I need to know what I'm doing wrong. Note that in all these samples cell A1 is the heading text "Column1" and the main data starts on cell A2 (consistent with the example code).

When my source Excel data looks like the following:

Code:
Column1
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
X
9
10

It imports everything OK. However, if I move the X to the next row:

Code:
Column1
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
X
10
...the "X" cell gets imported as an empty string. So the imported array looks like this:

Code:
arrSheet[0][0]: Column1
arrSheet[1][0]: 1
arrSheet[2][0]: 2
arrSheet[3][0]: 3

[Code] ....

But if I add another X to an earlier row in the source worksheet, like so:

Code:
Column1
1
2
3
4
5
X
7
8
X
10
...this gets imported OK.

Find And Replace Data From File Import?

Mar 24, 2014

.Find and Replace data

I have a file that I keep importing into Excel that shows up in Column A. The Range typically varies to how short or how long the end of the file is. But every time I import a file in, the last 20 rows are the same. The 20 rows I want to replace with other values on another sheet.
This is a simple example:

SHEET_1
COLUMN A
1
2

[Code]....

I would want to replace the numbers with the letters. The biggest thing is if I can filter or have excel find the end of the file (using a shift+crtl+End) or something and have a formula on sheet2 that it can reference; then replace. Any way to have excel automatically find the end of the file and replace values without manually doing it.

Macro To Import Data From Text File

Jun 11, 2014

I've never actually had a reason or need to use macros for data import or manipulation. At the moment I'm trying to work on a modeling problem which will output the data in the form of a large text file. The data is divided up using 1000 energy bins, and 1000 timing bins for each tally (unique set of output data) like in this file [URL].....Unfortunately because of the applications for the data I can't reduce the number of bins, and the software being used for the modeling will not provide a more convenient form for the output file.

How to create a macro that can extract this data from the output file and import it into a designated excel spreadsheet. It would be preferable to import each set of tally data from the initial output file into it's own spreadsheet, but as I said I have no experience using macros and I'm not even sure where to begin in making something that would work. or even a basic source for examples

How To Import All Data In Files In A Directory - File Names Change Each Day

Oct 9, 2008

I have a directory where our customer service people deposit forms each day. The form is always the same, with a number of columns that need to be copied into a master list. From there they are analyzed, sorted, etc, then exported, so the number of rows in that list varies from day to day as well. Is there some way to have VBA import each file sequentially from a directory if I do not have the exact file names?

I am using this import code from a macro to start with:

Sub importdata()
' importdata Macro
Range("A2").Select

Save AS Tab Delimited File For SAP

Feb 4, 2008

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??

Excel 2010 :: Import Text Files To Include File Name As Data?

Jul 12, 2012

I need to import thousand of txt files into 1 worksheet keeping the file names as data. Each txt file has 2 columns :

and each txt file represents recordings made at specific time and date (e.g 0158.DSG_RAWD_HMS_21_ 0_ 0__DMY_29_ 2_12_pulses). I would like to have 2 columns: 1) with the time taken from the name of the txt file (e.g. 21:00:00) and 2) the associated recording. Something like this:

21:00:00 0.65914

21:00:00 0.86062

and so on for each txt file and all the recordings piling up in 1 spreadsheet. I have tried to run few codes in VBA, but I have no knowledge of it and none of the code worked. I am using Excel 2010.

Convert XLS To Pipe-delimited TXT File

Jul 15, 2009

I have the following code (borrowed) which converts the current .xls worksheet to a tab-delimited .txt file. The problem is that i need to add a PIPE to the end of each row/record as well, so that the records would look something like this:

A|123|
B|456|

currently there is no PIPE following the last character (3 or 6) and i am getting this:

A|123
B|456

I was hoping there would be a way to revise the VBA to add a PIPE at the end of each row/record.

VBA To Read In Delimited Text File

May 21, 2014

I've a word form that collects free text and tick boxes. I'm reading these into separate rows on an excel sheets. So far what works...

I've got excel vba converting the word to a delimited text file
I've got excel vba to remove the erroneous rtns that people have entered into the free text that was things up.

In the free text there are commas entered as well as the tick boxes and this is a csv. Example
"how do I do this, I don't know",1,1,0,1,"really seems to be a challenge!"

If I just use excel to open the text file then the columns work out ok and on a single row - I think the 'text qualifier' is playing a role here.

But I can't replicate this in VBA. If I record a macro it's a query table and I don't know how to amend the code to read into rows.
