Save Excel File To CSV With Blank Cells With Formula Without Getting Commas?
Mar 20, 2014
I am working on a excel file that has a sheet that i want to convert to .csv. The sheet has formula's for the first three column that are warped an if statement that returns "" (blank) if certain conditions are not meet. However when i got to save the file as a csv i get a file with ",,,,,,," where there is no data. I would like to save csv and have only commas where this data.
When i convert a sheet like
Firstname Lastname Password
Tim Cats Bo3n9x
it saves as
Firstname Lastname Password
Tim Cats Bo3n9x
I created a macro to save an active sheet as a CSV file. Two issues arise out of that effort. One is that I can't seem to get the environment variable right to allow any user to save the file to the root of their My Documents folder on their home directory in a domain environment. That way the template will work for everyone and requires no user intervention. Tried using the % with HOMEPATH, but I must somehow have the syntax off.
Secondly, the file being saved as a CSV file is creating a huge several megabyte file with empty lines of commas.
Sub Macro2() Sheets("Results").Select ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _ "\%HOMEPATH%My DocumentsTesting.csv", FileFormat:=xlCSVMSDOS, _ CreateBackup:=False Application.WindowState = xlNormal End Sub
Thought it should be CSV MS DOS file type, but that doesn't seem to work either. I only want to save the rows with data on the active sheet to a CSV file, which will not have all the extra lines of commas.
I have a column of contacts. Each contact has data spread out over many rows, most of which are blank. I would like all of the data spread out through the rows to be in one cell, delineated by commas (so I can import into another program).
Concatenating the cells works except that I end up with 20 commas for two strings of info.
Just so you understand I may have this: Mary red blue yellow purple Rob blue purple Trey yellow
and I want it to look like this
Mary red, blue, yellow, purple Rob blue, purple Trey yellow
Currently using Excel 2010 and looking for a macro that will export a selection (will be part of a column that I select) and export as an MS-DOS CSV file (no quotes around values, each row on different line) with 12 commas after each value in the selection.
Attached is an example of how I would like the output to appear, with the selected values only have four numbers in them. If possible, I would like a dialog box to appear for saving the file to a directory and name that I chose.
What I am trying to do is that I have an excel file with macros and it is a read-only file. In order for the user to save, I want them to only be able to save as a .xlsx file as it disables all macros. If for whatever reason, the user wants to save the file as another .xlsm file, they should be allowed but before they save, a "are you sure you want to save as .xlsm?" message should pop up.
All the options in the save as box should still be available in case they want to save in that particular format. Just that the .xlsx should be the default.
VBA coding for automatically saving an excel file as another file using the current date as part of the file name together with "32ga" as a constant add-in. I also what this macro to run at a particular time of the day let say 00:20hrs. The excel file i want to save as is always open . It has data that changes every 24-hrs.
I have a large spreadsheet, within which i am trying to remove commas from all cells. I get the error 'formula is too long' when I carry out the search. Some of the cells are >1024 characters in length and contain dates, text etc.
A co-worker of mine is exporting files from Quickpen as excel files, but every time he names the files with any Uppercase letters in the files name, they are automatically changing to all lower case. Even when he tries to rename the files, they will not stay with any uppercase letters....I have searched all over and cannot find a solution. If he sends ME the file, I can open it in excel and save it with any cases.
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......................
I have created a macro in excel 2010 which enable the file to save (extract) data into separate location and name. The vba code for macro is as follows: Question: How can I save this workbook with reference to the value containing in cell B2? (it is named temporary now - as defined in the code)
I have some daily text files in a folder (so about 30 of them each month), which in the end of month, I need to open them up in excel, format them so that I can use the information for my analysis.
I would like to create a macro, to quickly open them all up at once and save them each individually in .xls or .xlsm format.
I am new to VBA and after some research online, I was able to have the files open with the following code. but now I don't know how to proceed further to save them one by one with the same name but in .xls or .xlsm format.
Sub Opentxtfiles() Dim MyFolder As String Dim myfile As String
I've been working on this problem on and off for a number of months now and have just about got it sussed so thought I'd share it with you as it has mostly been down to postings on this board that I've got it in the end.
Thanks especially to 'biggoan' for his post: http://www.mrexcel.com/board2/viewto...136&highlight=
Anyway, this seems to avoid the need for a class module but does need you to install the Acrobat Distiller object references in Tools...References in the VBA editor.
You also need to go into the printer properties of the your Adobe PDF 'Printer' and under Printing Preferences...Adobe PDF Settings deselect the Do not send fonts to "Adobe PDF" option. Why, who knows!

I can't modify my formula to leave blank cells blank when dragging it down, Also, I've got two formulas that i need to combine. Please view the comments I've put in cells E4, F2,F3,H2 and I2 to understand clearly what am seeking. See the attached worksheet.
I'm using Excel 2000 swedish version, that is we use comma to seperate decimals not dot. I have a macro that saves a sheet as .txt file (tab delimited). However in the sheet (journal voucher) I need to enter a couple of numbers all with 2 decimal, that is 5 is 5,00 and so on. But then, when I save the sheet to a .txt file using a macro all the commas are saved as dots and since I'm importing the file to SAP it will not accept the dots. Is there some way ( changes in macro) I can prevent the commas from becoming dots when I save the .txt file?
Using Excel 2010, I have a workbook containing a variable number of PDF files captured as embedded OLE Objects. I wish to save each of the embedded PDF files to disk and assign the filename based on the contents of column 1 of the row containing the OLE Object.
I run excel 2010... I have xls file (see file attached) with both English and Non English characters.
When I save this file as xls or xlsx - everything is good, but when I save the file as CSV and try to open it later - I see that the English characters stays the same but the non English characters become gibberish.
How can I save a file (that include some non English characters) as CSV without loosing the non English characters? Is there a way to do that from within the excel 2010 menus? Or maybe there is an external tool?
Excel takes about 10 minutes in the saving process. When I say 10 minutes, I mean, the excel screen freezes (says not responding) for about 10 minutes, then it actually saves at the very end in the normal time any other file would take as you watch the progress bar go forward.
I know many of the common answers and have tried. reducing the calculation time (which in turn reduces the saving time).
But in my circumstance, the calculation takes a very reasonable amount of time, and you see the progress % going forward.
- I would say I have about 2000 rows, and 15 columns. - They have sumifs formulas. - They link to a different workbook. - The workbook I am working on saves to the network - the source of my sumifs are also in the same folder on the network - the recalculation takes about 10 seconds at most - i have turned off recalculate before saving, it is all on manual calcs
- when i hit save, there are no calcs being performed - there are no macros in the workbook - there are only about 2 names in the name manager - then it freezes for about 10 minutes. - then the progress bar starts moving then it saves.
What is it doing in those 10 minutes?
1 more item to note, when I break the links to the workbook and thereby removing the sumifs formulas, its a snap.
Why does the existence of the sumifs extend saving time? I would completely understand if it elongated calculation time, but if calculation is off, then why does it even worry about it when saving?
I recorded a macro to save my file as PDF and assigned the macro to a button. Easy. Now I would like to change my macro to pause when the file is saving to allow the user to enter a file name. If that is not possible, I'd like to reference a cell to use as the file name. I have gone through other posts and tried changing my macro, but always get an error. I am using Excel 2010. Following is my code for saving to pdf.
