In our case, we see from the “Kind” column that all of our objects are simply sheets from the workbook and on the Name column we see the name of the workbook where each object comes from After just 1 click, you have all of the data ready to be combined on the “Data” column.
The elements within the red and orange outline were automatically created by the tool. Expand the data found in the Data column – you’re one step away from consolidating all of your data!
I get a dump of about 70 text files into a shared folder each week..call the folder "Data Dump". I only have one extra question: how can I insert an Enter after each copy because the first line of the next txt-document is "glued" to the last line of te previous one. Thanks in advance Sub Test2() Dim fso As Object, txt As Object, str Txt As String Dim str Parent Fldr As String, str File As String Dim i Free File As Integer, str Out Put File As String str Out Put File = "H:\Conxolidated File.txt" 'amend as appropriate str Parent Fldr = "H:\CSVFiles" 'amend as appropriate Set fso = Create Object("Scripting. Path & "\*.txt") If Len(str File) 0 Then Do Set txt = fso.
All of the files in the folder are named with a txt extension such as 5474.txt, ,or . Simply enter the line above in a Text Editor (like Note Pad) and save it with a extension. Open Text File(str Parent Fldr & "\" & str File) str Txt = str Txt & vb Cr Lf & txt.
I need a way to combine all of these files into one and get it into Excel so I can start creating a Macro for it. Then, when you click on it in Windows Explorer, it will automatically run. " Wow Joe - that's so much shorter than the VBA solution I hacked together! Theoretically, it will combine all files, but your output will probably not usuable for files that have fomatting, like Excel files and Word documents (I knew that if I thought about it more...) This method of combining files is really only useful for straight text files (.txt, .csv, .dat, .prn, etc.). Use the built-in Help that comes with Excel/Access 2. A lot of VBA code can be acquired by using the Macro Recorder.
You can then write your Excel macro to import the ALL. The Macro Recorder should help you get most of the code you need. Use the built-in Help that comes with Excel/Access 2. A lot of VBA code can be acquired by using the Macro Recorder. Methinks I should consider learning a few DOS commands... If you want to combine Excel files, you would be better off creating a macro that opens each files and copies the data and paste it on to the end on one "master" Excel file.
In this specific case, we have an Office 365 group that we’ve created where we store some external sales data that do not come from our system.
It used to throw weird results with Excel files, but that changed with the latest version of the Power BI Desktop and Power Query.
