Combine Text Files And Append File Name Details To Each Record?

Apr 24, 2013

I receive 24,000 text files once a month that need to be combined into one csv/txt file and/or spreadsheet(tab).

About a year ago I posted a thread on the same topic which received a fantastic response from jindon that worked great

Unfortunately, the format in which the text files are ouput has changed, as has the filename layout. The files are now output with filenames such as:

(lic#, company name, displaying # records found, date, type.txt)

40298827_Windham Professionals Inc _Displaying records 1 through 10 of 100_041813_AGENTS.txt
40298827_Windham Professionals Inc _Displaying records 11 through 20 of 100_041813_AGENTS.txt

(files with EANF in the filename have no records inside them and can be skipped)

While the contents of each file look like this: (see attached text file reference)

I would like to combine the contents of the text files while appending the lic#, company name and date from the filenames to each record so the resulting file looks like this:

40305196 Audette , Anthony Sales Provider 40298827 Windham Professionals Inc 041813
40313800 Burritt , Kimberly Sales Provider 40298827 Windham Professionals Inc 041813

As far as I can tell jindon's code is fine except the regex expression needs to be modified to handle the new layout, however that is far beyond me.

Append Multiple Csv Files Into Master File?

Jan 13, 2010

I have about 100 csv files of the same format that I would like to append into a single master file. Order is not important for appending (I can do a column sort later) I can do copying and pasting, but this will take a long time especially because I will creating more master files from completely different CSVs in the future. Is there a faster way to append CSV files?

Append Cell Text To File Name

I have a filename written in cell A1- eg dog.jpg - and I want to insert a set character string just before the .jpg part. ie so it becomes dog_test.jpg in B1. How would you guys do it? I've been thinking of really long-winded methods that'd use several cells, but I reckon there might be a cleverer way!

Import Text File With 2 Rows Per Record Into 1 Row

Jan 10, 2013

I have a text file that contains two rows of data for a single record. when I open the file up in excel, it puts each row into column A. What I need to do is put the 2nd row and combine it with the data in the first row so that i can then run the text to columns wizard and put all the data into its own column.

Here is an example of the data:

TEWAC Dresser Rand SAB 21120-14 1350 1687 3300 80 .80 50 4 2.63 EE-7592 1 2250 46 30.5 14 6

2 13 4 8 .258 .102 0 0 3175V 2 .11 .46 .25 1.5 1.500
CACA Intergen CACA 21120-33 1720 2150 6600 70 .80 50 4 4.56 R971055 50C Amb EE-7467 1 46 30.5 33 14
8 14 1 2 .229 .144 2 2 .0303175V/1 HL2 .20 .65 .30 2.0 697 2.150

What it should look like is the following:

TEWAC Dresser Rand SAB 21120-14 1350 1687 3300 80 .80 50 4 2.63 EE-7592 1 2250 46 30.5 14 6 10 12 1 4 .229 .102 2 2 .0303175V/1 HL2 .13 .50 .25 1.5 394 3.000

leaving me with 3 rows and one column of data.

I have multiple files with about 600 rows in each that I need to process.

Compare 2 Files & Append

Aug 15, 2008

I am trying to compare 2 excel files (main and monthly) and append the new records in to the main file that will have several more columns than the monthly file. So the Main file will have all the records of previous months, and will be compared against a new monthly file to make sure only new records are added from the monthly file in all the six sheets. The columns are exactly the same in all the sheets. Except for the main file which as mentioned will have several more columns for other details. How can I do this? I have been searching a lot but couldnt find what I exactly was looking for. As an example I have attached 2 files. obviously the real files have much more data. The second part is how to modify the already existing records in the Main file when same record in Monthly file changes. this is later.

Macro To Append Excel Files

Aug 22, 2014

I am absolutely new to VBA and trying to create a macro for work. We get daily files with almost the same headers that needs to be consolidated at the end of every month. The headers on the files are usually the same, except at times an extra column may be added at the beginning.

I need a macro to do the following-

Prompt to select the desired files.

Read the headers and append only the desired header columns from these files to a master file(these are Account, User, Modified By, Version). The headers are present in row A. Also, the master file should select the header from the first file only and hence take only the data (row B) from the second file onwards so that the headers are not repeated in the middle in the master file.

In the master table, add a new column at the end which will be the name of the file.

In the master file generated, filter on the column "Version" and delete all the rows except Version="1.0"

Lastly, there are certain values in the excel files that need to be changed. So I need a replace function to change those values.

Import Text Files To A Sheet In Existing Excel File

Jul 25, 2014

I have a folder with multiple text files. I want to import one of these files to a sheet called data in an existing Excel file. The excel file has references to this data sheet on other sheets which I want to keep. I want to save this excel file with the name the text file has and repeat this for all the text files in the folder.

I found a macro a while back which does the job nicely of importing and saving the Excel file, however all the data in the other sheets gets lost once it is saved. How to keep the data?


Sub tgr()
Const txtFldrPath As String = "FOLDER WITH TEXT FILES" 'Change to folder path containing text files
Const xlsFldrPath As String = "FOLDER FOR EXCEL FILES" 'Change to folder path excel files will be saved to
Dim CurrentFile As String: CurrentFile = Dir(txtFldrPath & "" & "*.txt")
Dim strLine() As String
Dim LineIndex As Long

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 :

1 0.65914
2 0.65945
3 0.86062
... ...
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 0.65945
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.

Excel 2010 :: Open Text Files In 65536 Row File Instead Of 1048576?

Apr 22, 2013

Is there a way to open a text file from Excel 2010 and specify that I want it in .xls format?

I am working in compatibility mode, and expected that when I opened a text file from code within an xls file, the text file would have 65,536 rows, but it has 1,048,576. This causes a problem when we try to copy the sheet with the data from the text file, and insert the sheet into our xls workbook. See code below. The error is: Run-time error '1004': Excel cannot insert the sheets into the destination workbook, because it contains fewer rows and columns than the source workbook..

I know I can get the data other ways (such as copying and pasting only the cells containing data) but I was hoping to make minimal changes to the code below as I will have to make it across several templates. Specifically, I was hoping that there was a qualifier I could add to the Workbooks.OpenText statement after "Tab:=True" - Perhaps something about opening the text file in File Format 56. However I have not been able to find out how to do that.

.....FileToOpen = Application.GetOpenFilename("All Files (*.*),*.*,GeoTAC Files (*.ctf),*.ctf, ­_
Text Files (*.txt),*.txt,Excel Files (*.xls),*.xls", 1, , , False)
Workbooks.OpenText Filename:=FileToOpen, _

Therefore, I have a tab 'FileLog' that I record the filename (variable by date) in column A and Creation timestamp in column B.

How do I obtain the filename and creation timestamp of the import data so that they can be entered?

Append Text To Existing Cell Text

Apr 1, 2008

I've got a sheet in which I want a drop down box, to ADD the value* to a cell, not overwriting its current value!

*The name of the selected option in the drop down box, the names are located in Map3!A1-n, I set the drop down box to display the related number in a cell next to it.

The cell would contain some text, and by selecting something in the drop down box, it would add the name of that option to the already existing value in the cell.

So if at first the cell's value is

Hi! I 'm Mark,

and you select the following option from the dropdown box

I 'm from Holland!

the cell would end with the value

Hi! I 'm Mark, I'm from Holland!

This would probably work with a macro, already made a start with it but I couldn't get it to ADD the value instead of overwriting it.

Combine Files

Jan 23, 2009

I have a scenario here and i really dont even know where to start. If anyone can help me with some code for this project that would be great.

I have a folder that contains several subfolders (10-20). Within each subfolder is a number of excel files (the number of files varies) that contain 2 worksheets each.

What i am trying to arrive at is one file for each subfolder that has the first tab of each of the files. The original files contain links, so the values and formats must be pasted. It woul dbe great if all of the new files could be saved in the main folder among all of the subfolders.

It would be especially great if each tab could be named for its respective file and each new file for its respective folder.
