I have a text file, which is been imported to excel sheet. There are 2 fields in the text file. Each field has to be placed in one column. The first field has values with space. Due to this the first field is split into 2 fields and totally 3 columns are imported in the excel sheet. Have set .TextFileSpaceDelimiter=True so that it would split the 2 fields, but since the first field has space in it, it splits into 3 fields. Is their any alternate way to obtain the above?
I am having a problem reading from a file. I am working with some old code. I am reading information in from a txt file. The information on the txt file is separated by commas on each line. My question is, how can I read in for example, the third section on the first line. By section I mean...
line 1: section1, section2, section3, section4, section5
I want to read section3 into a string variable. If anyone can help me please post. I am having the hardest time finding this online.
I recently got this task by my work employer to transfer information from several non-organized Excel-documents into one, complete and organized one.
The thing I have to organize right now is a column with thousands of zipcodes and zones in one single cell, only separated by spaces, like this:
Zipcode Zone 115 54 Gothenburg 443 67 Skane
What I want to do is instead of having to go through 24h of braindead control/paste is to use some easy and fast function or script that could pull out the last piece of string of information in every cell in that column into its own separate cell.
Although I am using Open Office Calc/Gnumeric on Ubuntu Dapper, if a script is necessary and only work with Excel on Windows/Mac, that is no big problem for me to solve. So please, any suggestion is welcome.
I will attatch two examples for you to look at, to get the whole picture.
I have tried experimenting with LEFT, RIGHT functions. I want to edit a text string using a delimiter. For example: "NOS|NOS". I have a column of 256 rows of such entries, a name; the pipe; a name. I need to be able to strip out one side or the other using that pipe as the delimiter, leaving only "NOS". With 256 rows of items with this format - the length of the text string will vary.
I have a script to import all the data in a text file into an excel sheet. However, the data that is imported are in the first column of every row.
for e.g. 123454566788329929201012827192019128278111111111abc213123123123123
there is no comma nor / to separate the string of alphanumerics is there any vba script that i can incorporate to separate the first 3 digit in the first column then 5 digit in the second column then 7 digit in the 3rd columns and etc.
I frequently review DAT files. These DAT files use a variety of characters as delimiters. I'm trying to devise a macro that will perform a text-to-column operation, using the content of a specified cell as the delimiter.
Here's my code, which uses - (ASCII 0254) as a delimiter:
Code: With Sheet1 Range("A1", ActiveCell.End(xlDown)).Select Do
Instead of having the delimiter hard-coded, I'd like my macro to use whatever character I enter into Sheet3.Range("i5") as a delimiter. That way, I can easily change my delimiter character as necessary.
I have a listbox populated with a number followed by description. How do I write code to extract the number and description to different cells. Listbox example: "1234ES - Project Description". Now I want "1234ES" in one cell and "Project Description" in cell left of number.
I am trying to convert text to rows but in the same column Take the following example:
Column A: 1-2-3 ab-cde-fg 54-ty-12345 the waht i am looking is convert it to the following format: (the - is the delimiter) Column A
1 2 3 ab cde fg 54 ty 12345
i have found the following VBA code on those forums but i don't know how to edit it to suit my needs
Sub Txt_To_Rows() Dim arrText() As String Dim varItm As Variant Dim rngText As Range Dim rngCl As Range Dim i As Integer Dim j As Integer Dim x As Integer Set rngText = Range("A1:A" & Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row) j = 2...........................
I'm currently trying to compare all of my companies data sources for staff, ie helpdesk, telephony, ldap etc. and I have made quite a bit of progress, mostly thanks to this forum, however one issue I am running into, is the fact that when I use the text to columns funtion (in a macro) it's splitting up names which are double barrelled into 3 columns. The names are in the format of...
I have 800+ files the problem is that the file name ends in 80 different combination so I need to try all of those for each file.
eg: one of the 800 is "109 st no 103 av" the file could be called: "109 st no 103 av nb1_cleaned.xls" or "109 st no 103 av nb 1_cleaned.xls" or "109 st no 103 av nb 1._cleaned.xls" or "109 st no 103 av sb1_cleaned.xls" . . . .etc
I wrote a code to try all those combinations, the issue lies a space the code adds before _cleaned, how to remove it?.
So the name should be "109 st no 103 av nb1_cleaned.xls" but my code is letting it be 109 st no 103 av nb1 _cleaned.xls
I have an existing spreadsheet with a column of strings (actually VIN numbers). These numbers correllate to a bunch of text files, that can exist in one of three folders (UsernameDesktop1, 2, or 3) on my desktop. What I need the macro to do is:
1) get the filename from A2 (A1 is a heading row) 2) Find the appropriate text file in one of the three folders 3) Put the folder name into I2 4) Scan the text file for some strings, and copy some data that follows those strings into J2:O2 (I can handle programming this) 5) Close the text file 6) repeat above for the remainder of filenames (about 1800 files)
I have a list of phone numbers in which name of the person and phone numbers are joined together. I would like to separate the name and phone number. Is there any way to do that. Example: I have the text like George9898989898, now i want it to appear as George 9898989898.
I am entering large amounts of text into a text box uisng VBA code.
In VBE I need to line break the text using "space _" in order I can keep the text manageable on the screen. Problem is VBA is telling me there is a limit to the number of line breaks I can have in a sub, how I can solve this, ideally would like to paste a para of text at a time.
I download players names from the internet for a football program I have and then have a formula that separates their names from their numbers. The problem is that in the cell with the players name their is always a space before the name starts. How can I get rid of this space?
The current text I download comes from the internet as follows:
2 Tom Bellchambers 4 Jobe Watson 5 Brent Stanton 7 Leroy Jetta 9 Brendon Goddard 11 David Zaharakis 12 Stewart Crameri 15 Courtenay Dempsey
These are all in column A I have the following formula in column D:
The formula separates the names from the numbers but it leaves a space before the name starts such that in column D the first name woud be appear as:
Tom Bellchambers (or - ""Tom""Bellchambers) Jobe Watson
And so on. My computer tries to match up these names in another sheet but because there is a space before the name begins it doesn't register. I got the formula above from one of you geniuses a while back and have NFI what it really means but alter it slightly so it gets rid of that space at the start of the name.
