Automate Export For A Range Of Cells To Text File

Oct 30, 2008

I'm trying to automate the process of exporting a range of cells to a text file. I think the Print# command will work because I don't want the quotes at the end of each line. Each range of cells will be a separate text file, and I want to save and name the file according to the column it's in. This bit of code from dominicb seems to be what I'm looking for, in principle.

Export Variable Range As Txt File. Ommit Error Cells

Oct 30, 2006

In the attached file, I have two columns (A and B) and the column A will vary within the range from A4:A104 and column B will vary according to A. Nevertheless column A has #N/A error which is mandatory for chart. So I am looking for a macro to do the following:

Start with cell B4 and go until value exsists for "B" (let me say for eg. B40) and select the range A4:B40 and ask the user to give name for the export file export only that selection as a tab delimited txt file.

I looked in to the above article. But i have trouble in selecting dynamic range and to avoid #N/A error in the range.

Automate Text File Imports Where Text Differs

May 5, 2008

I am trying to automate in VBA the process of importing of txt file to Excel range. The columns widths are not static. So I can't use recoded code of Text to Column wizard process as columns alignment arguments, (ie FieldInfo:= Array(Array(0, 1) would need to be changed daily. I have also tried to import the text in one column and then apply a code of TextToColumns to automatically split the text by multiple columns. But some of the text would be moved to the left under wrong column titles. I think this is because the text is not tab or comma delimited. It's just aligned using multiple spaces.

Is it possible to write a code to split the text by columns based on alignment of 2 first rows. For example, import rows 6 and 7 from the text in one column, then apply texttocolumn method like this:

.TextToColumns DataType:=xlDelimited, consecutivedelimiter:=True, Space:=True

Then, based on this alignments take arguments for the Open File method like this:

Workbooks.OpenText Filename:= _
"filename", Origin:=xlMSDOS, _
StartRow:=1, DataType:=xlFixedWidth, FieldInfo:=Array(Array(0, 1), Array(10 _
, 1), Array(20, 1), Array(31, 1), Array(39, 1), Array(48, 1), Array(57, 1), Array(66, 1),Array(75, 1)), TrailingMinusNumbers:=True

Automate Text File Import

Jun 21, 2007

I found this question from 2004 but it has expired so I could not quote or reply to it. It can be found at Open file search and import text file This was the question:

I'm looking for some code that i can attach to a command bar which allows the user to browse and search for any text file on their C:Drive and then import it. I think i can work out the import using the data import wizard and macro recorder.

Sub DoIt()
Application.Dialogs(xlDialogImportTextFile).Show
End Sub

The original person said they can work out the import using the wizard, but my users are not tech savvy and therefore I was wondering if I could automate the text file showing up in the excel sheet ( named 'Import') after selecting the text file (instead of going to the wizard). I have attached a sample text file for an example (first row being a header)

Export Selection To Text File

Dec 23, 2006

I'd like to be able to highlight a row of data in an Excel spreadsheet that were just entered by the user, click on a button that's linked to a VBA macro that exports the highlighted data to a text file (with a .txt extension), saves that text file & exits from it without the user having to say Yes to a dialog box that asks if he/she wants to save.

Automate Export Of Data To An Access Table

Jun 25, 2002

I put together a little table for one of my LAN based facilities to track their Overtime Savings as compared to each of their individual units. It works great.

What I would like to do is to export the data on a weekly basis to Access. I set up an access table to recieve the data and I can get it all to work just fine except I want the users to just click on a menu item and have the export take place in the background.

I know how to create on the fly menus and get them to accecpt commands from Excel Macros so that is not an issue.

I know how to share data in Excel from Workbook to workbook, closed or open. I'm sure it can be done Excel to Access I just can not for the life of me find anything to jumpstart me in the right direction in either application's help files. Anybody out there linking their Excel data to Access?

Macro, Export To Text File, One Row At A Time

Apr 8, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that currently looks like ........

My problem is that I want the macro to create either (a) a seperate text file for each line (1 for line 2, one for line 3 etc etc) or even better (b) create a file for the specific line i am on. For example if i happended to click on D5 and then pressed the macro key it would onyl create a txt file for line 5, same if i clicked on E6, it would only create a file for line 6.

I would be grateful if you could highlight the code you insert into my macro as it may be useful for other reports i run.

Skip Blank Row When Export To Text File

Oct 22, 2009

I have macro that exports certain range to text file. It goes through first to last row and exports it to Text file. Here is the part of the
For Each myRecord In Range("A2:A" & Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row)
With myRecord
For Each myField In Range(.Cells, Cells(.Row, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft))
sOut = sOut & DELIMITER & DEL & myField.Text
Next myField
Print #nFileNum, Mid(sOut, 2)
sOut = Empty
End With
Next myRecord
The problem is that sheets might by empty. I would like to add something to this code ( I guess some IF condition) so that all blank rows are skipped and not exported to text file.

Export Data As Text 1000 Rows Per File

Mar 24, 2007

I'm trying to accomplish is to take an Excel file that contains one column of data consisting of up the maximum number of rows of data (numbers formatted as text? "000000000") and export the data to a text (.txt) file 1000 rows at a time. I would also like the code to allow me to name the .txt files in succession, for example, Pg01, Pg02, Pg03, etc.

The files are going to be used to query a system that will only accept text input 1000 items at a time.

I run the following code to ensure the data is formatted consistently:

Sub a_VerifyDataForInput()
' Start at Cell A1
Range("A1").Select
' Select Column A
Columns("A:A").Select
' Format data in Column A
Selection.NumberFormat = "000000000"
' Replace all "|" (whatever you call this thing ... pipe???)
Selection.Replace What:="|", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
ReplaceFormat:=False
' Replace all "-" (dashes)
Selection.Replace What:="-", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, _ ........................

How To Automate Copying Of Range Of Cells Into Same Row 365 Times

Feb 1, 2014

I am trying to capture data for statistical analysis, but have hit a snag. As shown in attached sheet I have each day for the year broken down into hour time slots into which data will be added. As I will need to come up with a number of similar sheets in the future I was wondering if there is a way to automate through vba, a quick way to copy down the hour slots for each day, 365 times, rather than the laborious task of copy and paste manually.

Export Data From A Template File To Total List File Using Macro In Template File

Dec 18, 2012

I have a template file for ordering trafolyte and steel plates. I have added macros to this template file. The existing macros do the following (shortly described):

Macro 1: clears order
Macro 2: update order date + send a read only file to the supplier of plates + save a read only copy of the file into one of three folders acc to info in one of the cells.

It's the Macro 2 I want to edit.

I want to add a "function" which copy a selection of data.column A to N from row 12 to 548 but only the rows where there is a value in column A.

Row 1 to 11 includes standard order info and Macro buttons.
Row 11 includes the heading for order data.

For everytime someone click on the Macro 2 button in the template file, I want the selection to be paste into the first "available" row in a "Total list" file.

The "Total list" file may have to be open (or a function to open, paste selection and then close the "Total list" file may be added)

File and Folder info:

To simplify suggestions, the following file and path info can be used (I can change to the correct later):
Template file name: template_order.xlsm
Template file location: \servershared emplate

Total list file name: total_list.xlsx
Total list file location: \servershared otal

Selection info:

The template file exists of a "general order info area" A1:N10
The column heading for order data is located at A11:N11
The selection to be copied is A12:N550 - But only rows where column A includes data (not empty).
(If the spesific order consists of 14 plates than there will be item no 1-14 in column A and I then I want to copy A12:N25 (row 25 will be item 14).

When I try to use record macro it looks like it only records what's happening in the template file - It doesn't record the pasting in the total list.

Save File As Text Using Cells For Path & File Name

Dec 20, 2009

How to save a file, with file- name. but the directory is to be read in worksheet "towns" in Cell1 (brussels) and filename in worksheet "names" in cell B2 (i.e. winter), so it saves to c:russelswinter.txt as a wordpad or kladblok txt file, that keeps a number, so each time we push a button "go back from worksheet names to worksheet towns" the "number" that is saved in the txt document goes up by value +1. In Flemisch, the "old" code goes as follows, and saves the number in the txt file Factuurnummer7.txt. But I want that the file name (here: FactuurNummer7) can be a variable text issue, which has to be read - as already noticed - in cell B2 (with the word WINTER). So the are 2 worksheets: towns, ans names

pad$ = Application.DefaultFilePath
'controle = Dir(pad$ + "FactuurNummer7.txt")
'If controle = "" Then GoTo EerstAanmaken
'Open pad$ + "Factuurnummer7.txt" For Input As #10
'Input #10, Nummer1
'Close #10......................

Lookup To Set Up Export File

Mar 21, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that my field workers use to collect data.(See 'Capture Form'). On the main worksheet they use drop-down lists to enter the data. These lists are drawn from named ranges on other worksheets. In the column next to these ranges are the respective ID numbers.

I want to set up a worksheet ('Export') that mirrors the capture worksheet 'Capture Form' but only includes the ID numbers so that I can import into my Access db. I'm sure it's probably just a simple worksheet function but I don't know how to do this.

Vba Code To Export Image File

Nov 10, 2006

I would like vba code that will export a given group of cells, or a defined print page area to a jpg file (preferable, but other image format would work). I'm planning to create a program that will change some cell data and create a jpg file for various sets of data.

I suppose if that's not possible that another alternative would be ok, so i'm open to suggestions, but the export to jpg format would be great. I found a little program that will do it, but i wanted to include the code in my program to make it all automated.

VB Script For TXT File Parser / Sort And Export

Apr 20, 2013

I have a large number of data files for a game, they are text files but have various extensions (like .weapon or .shipsection). These files contain a code hook and a integer,boolean or string separated by a space and or tab. There are a set list of available code hook variables (around 250) but each text file only specifies relevant ones to be changed from default. I would like to have 2 Macros, one to import existing txt files and one to export. The goal is to be able to have a database to manage these individual txt files without editing them manually.

Here is one of the .txt files

Code:
weapon
{
name 'PD Interceptor'
weaponclass pdmissile
weaponfamily missile
model1 "" // insert barrel model for tiny mounts here if we get them
model2 barrel_pdmissile.X // NOTE: model2 for tiny pd weapons in small mounts

[Code] .....

In excel I have a page intended to be a export template containing all the existing code hook types. I want to create another page using the importer with columns for every hook instance and rows for each txt file instance. Column 1 must be the txt file name and the rest of the columns populated only if the hook is present and with the value associated. Export would work by reading values off the database for each row into the template page if they exist for each column and create a text file using tab as delimiter.

Here is the scripts I have so far:

Import:

Code:
' ---------------------- Directory Choosing Helper Functions -----------------------
' Excel and VBA do not provide any convenient directory chooser or file chooser
' dialogs, but these functions will provide a reference to a system DLL
' with the necessary capabilities
Private Type BROWSEINFO ' used by the function GetFolderNameB

[Code]......

I used a script with directory navigation but the import one does not work properly...Is this too much to ask of macros?

Activechart.export Not Renaming Temp File

Apr 20, 2007

I am trying to export a chart using the code below, the loops change the data that is used to produce the chart:

Dim strFilename As String
Dim strExt As String
Dim lngProfile As Long
Dim lngOption As Long
For lngOption = 1 To 3
Range("nmOption") = Choose(lngOption, "Existing", "Option 4", "Option 5")
For lngProfile = 1 To 4
Range("nmProfile") = "Profile " & lngProfile
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 13").Activate
ActiveChart.ChartArea.Select
strExt = "gif"
strFilename = ThisWorkbook.Path & "Images" & _
Range("nmOption") & "_" & Range("nmProfile") & "." & strExt
ActiveChart.Export strFilename, strExt
Next lngProfile
Next lngOption

Each export command creates a file with the correct name but no data (0kb in size) and a temporary file that is the correct file type (I have tried both jpg and gif).

I could try and copy the temporary file, but why does Excel not finish the job? I have tried to put a loop in and also added DoEvents after the export but no joy.

I am wondering if there is a way to export the data from the .txt file and into the specific fields within the excel sheet. Can I encode the .txt or excel file to do it for me? Trying to eliminate the need to manually put in the data from the printed out sheet.

Macro To Automate Text Function?

Feb 15, 2014

I am trying to write a small macro involving Len and Left formulas. This will take input from two cells and and give the value on a third cell. I know how to do this on excel. This goes as follows:

Value on A5 = HB_AM_1
Value on B5 = 1

My formula to extract the specific text =LEFT(A5,LEN(A5)-LEN(B5)-1).

My result on D5= HB_AM

Here, my inputs are clearly defined and I can write this formula on cell D5 to get the result. I can copy this down to the end of my data and I can get my result.

My challenges: I need to do this for various reports where the data extends to various rows. I think looping will solve the problem, but not sure how to do it. The value on cell B5 will always show the last number at the cell A5 (1 in the eg above). So, if the number in A5 is 10, value in B5 will also be 10. This is already there in my data, so I do not worry about this part.
