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.
I have a workbook with many spreadsheet named Sheet1, Sheet2 and so on. Each sheet is filled completely upto 65536 rows. This data is being picked up from a CSV file. In this file there are sites with each site there is a assciated set of data. What happens is the data that extracts data does not differntiate between sites and when it reaches to the end of worksheet it splits the data into next sheet. So I am trying to create a macro to check each spreadsheet starting with the last sheet in the work book for example last sheet in the workbook is seven it should go to sheet6 and if there is a blank row after row 64000 it should cut all the rows and move them to sheet7. Then it should goto sheet5 and do the same and keep on doing it until it reaches sheet1.
I have a .txt file (comma separated) that updates daily, which I need to import into Excel. The .txt file contains data from many years, but I only need the data from 2012. Is there a way to only import rows where the data in column "yearID" equals 2012? Since this is a daily operation, I'd rather not import all the rows and then sort/delete rows every time.
I have a several large delimited text files around 800,000+ lines. It cannot all be pasted into excel due to the 65,000 line limit. For my purposes, I only need about 1 in every 1,000 lines from the text file anyways. Is there a way to only bring in the lines I want? Here is the test file layout:.................
I only need the lines that start:
I tried running some macros that I found through searching the forums, but I couldn't get any to work.
I have around 50 text files with similar design per attached file. I need to import the text files with criteria below:-
1. include file name 2. let user choose the folder 3. exclude data from "work in process summary" to "work in process cost totals" 4. only have one title in the excel files which all text files is combined "Item, Line ....." 5. If the text files do not have title like "Item, Line, ..." do not import
Is it possible to have all criteria listed above by running a macro?
After doing some searching I found a macro here which imports multiple text files into one workbook, keeping each text file as a seperate worksheet, each worksheet named the same as the original file name (minus the .txt extension).
However, it adds a blank line between each line of text. So I get this:

This doesn't happen when I use the import wizard, or when I just open the file from the File -> Open menu.
My text files are always the same format (number of lines, etc.), so it's easy to delimit and insert forumlae as needed, but those extra lines are breaking a macro I've previously written to parse the data.
I have a macro which imports data from a mainframe dump text file and performs 'Text to Columns' on the imported data so that formula in the spreadsheet can act on the data. The code works perfectly well when I use it, but if a different user logs on and performs exactly the same mainframe dump and import macro the Text to Columns action splits the raw data in a different way and the result is that the split renders the formulae useless.
I've experimented a little and for some reason it appears that the 'Field Info' parameters which are produced when the Text to Columns function is recorded in a macro differ between users even though the raw data is exactly the same.
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 40303726_HEARTLAND CREDIT RESTORATION INC _EANF_041913_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:
Is it possible to use the import external data function in excel to import only the bottom 1000 rows from a database? Right now I've only been successful at importing all the data but I only want the last x number of rows. The database is currently an excel file.
I'm trying to use the import data to pull from a closed csv file. I see the column select but no place to select which rows. Is this even possible, I only need the first 500 rows of all columns to be placed in a new worksheet.
I have a lot of txt. files you would like to imported automatically via VBA code text file is always the same need only certain data in these two rows which is the red just want this data
it is copied from txt. files in Excel so that I had with the click of a button you obtain all the information and through this button you looking for the folder in which the data next would have 2 lines one would be the computer name of one folder and the user can more This would also be the folder in which the data were computer name to the main folder subfolder, users, and wanted to let me read the particulars of which are in the name of the computer and the user. for example. computer name of the user
I recorded the following macro but it only imports files with a specific name. Can someone change the code to allow it open the specific file loaction where I may choose which .txt file I want to import.
I have imported a tab delimited text file into excel. One of the columns consists of a string of text - a comment section. Within this column, there are periods and for some reason it seems that Excel is treating these periods as row separators. how I can prevent Excel from separating the text into rows?
I am trying to figure out a problem. So far without any results. As an Intern at a company, every week I receive a .txt which I have to import and reformat in Excel. Every week this means several hours of work, so I decided to see if this process could get automated. Or at least partially. I was wondering if any of you could give me a hint how to do this, or where to start. Attached you will find the raw .txt data and the format it should get in Excel.
I need 3 columns - Title - HD - Channel. If no value for HD, the field would be blank.
Data looks like this in txt file: > A&E HD 265 > ABC Family HD 311 > Altitude Sports and Entertainment HD 681 > American Movie Classics (AMC) 254 > Animal Planet HD 282 > BBC America 264 > BET Jazz 330 > BYU TV 374 > Big Ten Network HD 220 > Black Entertainment Television (BET) 329 > Bloomberg Television 353 > Boomerang 298
Needs to look like this in Excel > Should look like: > A&E HD 265 > ABC Family HD 311 > Altitude Sports and Entertainment HD 681 > American Movie Classics (AMC) 254 > Animal Planet HD 282 > BBC America 264
I have a software application that imports audio files and writes information about these files to text files. I'm trying to write and Excel/VBA application that will parse and import the data contained in these files. find a sample of one of these files attached. The big hurdle I am facing is I cannot figure out how to parse this file - the delimiter keeps changing as throughout the file (see example below):
I have this text file that gets sent to me, and i want to be able to re-organize the horible set up (see Import tab) into the proper format (see Reorganized tab) using Macros. There are many variables, such as the number of part numbers, the number of problems can all vary. As well as the number of claims. I don't even know where to begin. See attached file as a sample.
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)
I'm back to ask the gods how can I import data from a .txt file every 2 minutes without me actually hitting refresh everytime? Is there some code that will import it or that will refresh it every 2 minutes?
I have a text file and need to convert into excel output using macro with a few selection item. Im attached a text file at least u know what how the text file look. In the text file, please ignore the 1st page(introduction page). In page 2 onward, what i want macro to run is to sort the items to excel into each column like 'BOOKINGNO',P.DELIV','CNTRNO','TYPE','INCOMING VSL','VOY','L. PORT'.
I'm trying to automate an Excel macro. I need a way to select the latest .txt file from the Import Data dialog box.
I currently have a "CHDIR" at the beginning of the macro that sets the active directory. When I make the "Import Data" pick I am in the proper place. Now if I can only sort the list of .TXT files by date, select the first file in the list and hit ok to continue I'd be off and running.
