Convert The Notepad File Into Excel

I have a notepad file that contains data. We need to convert the notepad file into excel and then segregate the data after conversion. Segregation point would be the point where in we can find keyword “Summary”. We need to create a macro that finds the occurrence of summary keyword. Then from the beginning till that summary point cut the entire data and paste in other worksheet. Name the worksheet as “Receivables” or “Payables” or “Fee Payable” depending what type of data that summary contains.

After creating different worksheets we need to format the worksheet in specific format.
For example: I have attached the “Recon1” XL file attached. Under Recon1 – “RECEIVABLES 1” contains the as is data converted from notepad. Later we need to modify the same data using macro as specified in “RECEIVABLES 2” and then as per the format available in “RECEIVABLES 3”.

Convert Text Delimited File To .xls File Using Vba
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.

Convert Each Column Of An Workbook File To New Text File
I want macro which export each excel column to new text file. The data in excel file is number. The column has only 5 rows that means each new text file should contain five lines of one column. It looks simple but couldn't manage to do macro for it. I have very big data set in one excel file, and have to be splitted into text files. The file name in new text files can be any kind as long as it can be in some sort of order for each export.

Convert A Lotus File
>I am trying to convert a Lotus file over to Excel, and am having some trouble
>converting an error handling dget function.
>ID"=GroupNumber)),VLOOKUP(GroupNumber,Databaseread,4,FALSE),DGET(Databaseread,"NAME","GROUP ID"=GroupNumber))
>This is the function that was used in Lotus; it returns the name of a

>the Lotus file.

Lotus 123's @DGET (and other database functions) are much more
sophisticated than Excel's counterpart functions. 123's can use
criteria expressions in the function calls. Excel's require criteria

In this particular case, there's no need to use DGET at all. There's a
single criterion term, so VLOOKUP is sufficient. If the "Name" column
were the 4th column in Databaseread, then try


Explanation: it appears you're just trying to find a particular group
number. DGET (and @DGET in 123) returns an error if there's more than
one entry. VLOOKUP returns the first matching entry. You're formula
makes it clear you want either the only matching entry or the first
matching entry. However, when there's only one matching entry it's also
the first matching entry, so VLOOKUP alone would have returned the
desired result.

I suspect you have other formulas that are more complicated, but you
believed the formula above would be a reasonable sample to provide. Not
so. If you have more complicated D-function calls, show them, not the
simple ones.

Convert Pdf File To Spreadsheet
Someone sent me a pdf file. It contains a list of items but the problem is I need to be able to copy and paste each item individually. I tried doing a google search to find a way to convert the PDF to a word doc but did not have any luck. So I think my only other alternative is to convert it to an excel (XLS) file.

Does anyone know of a way to do this so that I can successfully copy and paste words from the document individually and not just wind up with an excel file with a picture of the PDF file in it?

Convert Imported Text File For Calculations
I have a file with four sheets – File1, File2, Association and LookList. File1&2 are totalled, as is Association sheet but then are checked against each other using the totals. What I need to do is the following (but I am not sure how to do it using macro…)

Step 1 - ‘File1’ Sheet – It all comes in text format. Firstly, convert all of column B=>used range (it may vary to 40k records!) into numbers and total each column.
(I know the principal behind it – have a total variable for ColB, loop through and when it finds >0 then increment buy one and output under the last cell in that column – but I do not know the macro code)

Step 2 - ‘File2’ Sheet – Again, it's in text format. Firstly, convert all of column B=>used range into numbers and total each column(would contain same amount of records
as Step1!) .

Step 3 - ‘Association’ – same steps as for File 1 (again – same number of records).

Step 4 - THEN (and I have NO IDEA how to do this!...) I need to check the File1 & File2 against Association using the lookup and return the Serial number and the Association heading that does not match on a fourth sheet.

The problem is that – for example – Field-1 consists total of more than one column – contains 3 but could contain a total of up to 6 columns! - I understand excel formula ‘vlookup’ but am not sure how to do it when it is a combination of columns and even less when applying it to this! – In fact, for a macro I am not even sure what column format the lookup list should be!

Notepad To Excel
I am wondering how would one go about turning a notepad file into an excel file without all the data being lumped into one cell?

for example the following notepad file is in this format:

20060102 190100;139.14;139.2;139.14;139.15;14
20060102 190200;139.19;139.19;139.16;139.18;16
20060102 190300;139.19;139.2;139.17;139.17;16
20060102 190400;139.16;139.24;139.16;139.2;22
20060102 190500;139.19;139.22;139.19;139.21;7

and I would like it in an excel file in the same format but with each group of digits seperated by a cell:

so for example my first line......

20060102 190100;139.14;139.2;139.14;139.15;14

I would like 20060102 in its own cell, followed by 190100 in its own cell, followed by
;139.14, followed by ;139.15, followed by ;14

Closing Notepad From Excel
In my spreadsheet, a series of macros calls an external program/application three times.

Each time the program finishes, it (and not Excel, as I formerly thought) opens a resource (*.res) file in Notepad, which of course goes into the taskbar. Since I need to run the spreadsheet seven or eight times in a row, the taskbar can get cluttered quickly.

The program opens three different instances of the same filename: iroutine.res.

Is there a way to get Excel to close these Notepad files (if it's simpler to do, it can kill all instances of Notepad) when it finishes running its routines?

Copy And Paste From Notepad VBA
I have two macros. The first one gets a file name and worksheet name. Then it calls the second macro which opens up notepad (with the specified file name) and pastes the information in excel. The problem that occurs is when I call the second macro more then once in a row from the first macro. It runs great the first time but then problems occur as it tries to run the macro again. (Some times it just closes my excel file with prompting me to save). Calling any of the files works on an individual basis (I've tried for all three). I've erased some of the code due to privacy issues but path location is identical for all three files. Here is the code.
