Excel import file with ETX symbol

Q: Excel import file with ETX symbol

I import a text file into Excel and have a macro to change it from a fixed width file to CSV. The file now has as block character at the end now, which I believe is the ETX end of text character. I need to write a macro to delete this so the CSV file is readable by another program.

Does anyone know what Excel translates this character as?

I'm trying to open in Excel 2010 a file with .exf extension that is always a pipe delimited text file. I have set, using Windows file associations, to open this type of file with Excel. But, I would like for it to recognize that it is pipe delimited, so that I don't have to click on Delimited, Other, "|" to import the file. Any ideas? I also thought about using a macro to save some steps as well. Thanks for your help!

I reference an object (Monarch) to create a table that I then want to import into my Access Database. The file is outputted by default to a .xls extension and Microsoft Excel 2.1 Worksheet (I am using Office 2003).

When I import a Text file into Excel (through Data > Import External Data and go through the Wizard) the data comes across correctly in the right columns etc. - I'm ok doing that.

The numbers and/or currency in my data do not seem to "work" properly as when I try to do calucations (such as a simple autosum) the answer always comes back as 0.

I've tried re-formatting the data as numbers/currency but this doesn't help.

I've also tried multpiplying the numbers by 1 (using Paste Special) to get them to re-format but this doesn't help either.

Any suggestions?


A:Import Text file to Excel - number format

Hi there, welcome to the board!

They could possibly have leading and/or trailing spaces. A couple of ways to handle that. Download/install a free add-in called ASAP Utilities, which you can access from (assuming Excel 2003, which is what it sounds like) ASAP Utilities menu, Text, Delete leading and trailing spaces. The range must be selected first. Another way would be to write your own macro to do it. If you don't have ASAP I'd highly recommend it, as it gives you additional tools and resources not native to Excel, making your life in Excel much easier.

An easy way to check would be to use a blank cell (generally adjacent column) and enter the formula =LEN(A1), where A1 references the cell in question with your numbers. No doubt they're numbers stored as text. If you've done the paste special then there's nothing to force to numerics. The other way to do that would be to select everything and to Text to Columns (from Data menu), and just click the Finish button (not going through the Wizard), which will also force (coerce) numerics stored as text to numerics.

I received a hard print of an excel spreadsheet with data in 9 columns (2 date formatted and 6 number formatted) of figures from my by bank and I wish 2 use them for further calculation. As I didn't get an electronic file from the bank I scanned the data sheet on the HP Scanner into text files ( rich text, plain text etc) and attempted to import the text into Excel; but I was unsuccessful. Have I attempted the impossible or did I do something wrong ?

If it is possible to do so how should I proceed ?

A:import from excel

Not sure what to suggest for the best, wdisneymom.

You can insert text form fields with the appropriate button on the Forms toolbar. Then you can add one or more Ref fields (Insert -- Field -- Links & References category) with field codes such as "REF Text1". When you then protect the doc, you can tab through & fill in the TFFs ; the Ref fields will update when you print or print preview.

But if there's much manual editing to do for each doc, it could get messy (with switching between protected & unprotected). Give it a go & see how you get on.

If you end up opting for a "merge from list" approach, I wouldn't recommend using Excel unless you specifically need the info in Excel for other purposes. Just use a table doc file instead.

I expect Dreamboat has stuff on this ; I'll go search.

A:Can I import a Excel

you can import excel data into an access table (need same fields, field data types etc - gets a bit tricky sometimes) or you can import an excel sheet into access and have it create a table (make sure each excel row1 column has a name in it to be used as a filed name, easier than renaming them in access)

the data can then be edited, saved in the access table, exported as an excel sheet

Access. I have the same problem with Excel 97 and Excel 2007. I am
running XP with all the current maintenance. Access seems to work normally
( at least for the limited functions I use) other than the Excel import

As further clues, I have only recently begun using Excel 2007, but when I go
back and resave the sheet with the old excel it still doesn't work.

Is there a way to import a vcard's data into an existing spreadsheet?

I have an excel spreadsheet that we do estimating of jobs. Instead of retyping all info (ie: Name, Address, Cell, Work Phone, etc. etc.) We would like to be able to import a vcard record to an excel sheet.

Thank You,
Michael D

A:Import 1 vcard record to excel

I'm sure it could be code some way. you should see it as a text file, not all vcards will contain the same data because they may contain more data if it's filled.
And less if they are not filled.

Have you tried opening one in notepad?

This is what you see

FN:Surname Familyname
TITLE:Managing Director
ORG:Company Name
EMAIL;INTERNET:[email protected]

Mind you it's possible that my system uses the ; as a field delimiter and yours a , so you'll have to do some checking

It's a aquestion of catching the right fields, since it's really a text file you could open it and write some code to go thourgh it and extract the fields yo need.

An error has occurred in the Microsoft translator while getting the contents of a file system
The Microsoft Excel file “C:\...xls has no named ranges. Use Microsoft Excel to name the range of data you want to import.

Note this has multiple sheets, if I copy the one sheet into a new file and then try the import then I receive error:

The File “C:\..xls was not recognised. The Microsoft Excel translator was unable to recognise this file. It could be the wrong file, a version of the file type which is not supported by this translator, or the file might be corrupt

How do I import a CSV file into excel keeping the leading zeros? Excel automatically drops the leading zeros when imported.

Welcome to TSG jeanniepie,
You have a dilemma. You don't want to configure the column format to text for the offending data. Without intervention Excel will determine that a group of numeric characters in a field is a ....Number. If you want it to be text you have to overide the logic and import as text.

This discussion at social microsoft describes many ways of doing what you want...most require you to know your data. --Depending on the data you may be able to import it all as text?

I want to import multiple excel files into single worksheet in a seperate excel file?
Is there a macro or procedure I can use to import these files..

all the files that need to be imported are in a single folder and data is in sheets a5 to j56 on each excel file.

A:import multiple excel files

I had this code in Access and was able to adapt it for Excel, I can't take credit for the part that collects the file info from the folder, but the rest I have put it.

I can actually use this myself, you just have to remember that Excel only holds 65536 rows.

Also I didn't have time to add a method to set the path of the folder, I want to use the GetFile so I will probably modify it later...for now you need to modify this part of the code in the VB editor to match the folder you want to import

path = "C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\" '*** Edit I added input box

Clown, Bozo (8430)

(basically in column 1 we have a list of last name (comma) first name and in parenthesis the last four of their SSN.)

I want to move the data from that sheet into another where the format is
First Name Last Name
Bozo Clown
Bugs Bunny
Road Runner

I would like the data imported to this new sheet sheet with the first name and last name in two columns instead of one (delimited by comma) and no last four, I want it in this format so I can mail merge that data into a word doc (I already know how to merge) but I don't know how to import the data to have the first and last names separated by columns with no last four of their SSN.
Can anyone help?

select the text and copy/paste it to excel.

I've got a DB that works like this: I export about 10 tables from Access to Excel. Each table will be exported to one worksheet in the same file. Then I update the data in the worksheets without modifying the field names. Finally, I want to import the data in the Excel to Access.

I could use the Import function in Access but it would mean I need to perform the import action 10 times. I found a line of code that looks that it's what I need but how do I modify it to tell it to import the correct worksheet into the correct table?

I'm really a novice at this so I would appreciate if you could use the following example. For example, tbl1 and tbl2 is exported into the same file A and worksheet is names tbl1 and tbl2. How do I write the code?

Line of code I found:

So I went to start and searched for excel.exe. that gave me the path to the actual file.

copied it down - went back to the control panel >programs/default programs > change and scrolled down to the file types, clicked on change > browse . and pasted the file path there.

Hello Group,

Trying to import one long Excel 2007 column which has only e-mail addresses, into a specific folder in my Windows Contacts. I want to then create a new contact group and then Open that folder with the imported addresses, and do a single Add step, selecting all the imported addresses, from the folder into the new contact group.

Have read some posts about this but it is not working for me (PC Windows Home Premium, Office 2007). Step-by-step:

OK, I save the Excel as a CSV file. Then Tools>Windows Contacts and open the destination folder. Clicking Import > CSV > Import and browse to the Excel file saved in CSV format > Open > Next

Then "Map the fields you wish to import" window appears, showing only the first e-mail address (from the top of the Excel column).

I click on Change Mapping and select "E-mail address" from the list of fields, tick the Import this Field box, and OK, then Finish. Voila.

The e-mails are imported, but they are scattered throughout my Contacts, and the destination folder remains empty.

How do I import to a specific folder in my Windows Contacts? I did not see a destination folder option during the import process, but that folder was opene when I did the import.

Thanks for looking in. Hope someone can solve this, as otherwise I must handle the addresses one-by-one into the Contact Group.

I've got a macro set up on a worksheet in workbook A, which once an hour is exporting data to a worksheet in workbook B. This is housed on a shared drive. I'm trying to set up Workbook C to have a worksheet setup that imports the data from workbook B, so that management can view hourly updates without having to check their email. I've set a query on workbook C to refresh at regular intervals to pull the updates each hour. The problem is that once workbook C refreshes, it locks workbook b preventing any further writes from workbook A. I've tried setting longer intervals between the refreshes, setting the workbook B as shared, and attempted to change the Mode in the OLE QUERY from Share Deny Right to Read.

TL;DR -Basically it boils down to the auto-refresh on workbook c maintaining a connection to workbook b, preventing workbook b from being updated. Is there a way to only have workbook C connect to workbook b during the refresh, instead of maintaining a constant connection as long as auto-refresh is enabled?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi musiclover

Copy the .pst file to the hard drive, check the properties of the .pst file and verify it is *not* marked Read-only.

Open instead of Import the .pst file.
In Outlook...version?
File > Open > Outlook Data File
Browse to the location of the .pst file.

Hi there,

I'm trying to import data from an Excel spreadsheet into a Word document that already has the mail merge set up in it. Whenever I try to do this, I select the source after which it just sits there with a message in Word indicating 'Initiating DDE Link with Microsoft Excel.' I tried it with the same document on another machine and it worked... Is there another way other than reinstalling Word and Excel to fix an issue like this. I already tried /unregserver and /regserver and also tried creating another document with a mail merge.

Thanks a lot in advance!!

Hi mhanigan, welcome to TSG.

Yes, you can save the Excel file as a .csv file and then go to your Contacts in Gmail. Select Import and then browse to the csv file and it will import the contacts. Hope that helps.

Hi Folks,
I found the following thread:

At best I am capable of copy pasting code - and I guess I'm slightly failing at that even.
I simply wish to be able to update an excel with dates of future tasks, in a particular column, and have these automatically appear as tasks on a particular date in calendar. Ideally column a (name of task) and column F (date in format 1.1.1.) would both be incorporated into the task, which would be allocated to date X in calendar.

I'm going to be importing ~150 separate .dat files into a single excel spreadsheet. The files have no headers, and I want them stacked on top of each other in the same columns. Each file is 18 columns wide and 640 rows long. Is there a way to do this that does not involve macros? I'm going to be doing this multiple times over the next few months and I would like to be able to do it myself, or at least modify the code. The files are numbered in an ordered, sequential fashion eg. KM070201000, KM070201001, KM070201002, etc.

Hi holymoly

In the Address Book in Outlook Express, enter at least one contact.

Then Export the Address Book as a Text File (Comma Separated Values) (.cvs) file to the Desktop.
This will give you a template to work with.

Open the .cvs file and paste the e-mail addresses into the correct field.
Save and close the .cvs file, then Import it into the Address Book.
File > Import > Other Address Book > Text File (Comma Separated Values) > Import
Browse to the .cvs file on the Desktop.
Let us know if that works for you or not.

I have an excel file with a column with values like 100, 200, 500, 500-02, and 500-04.
Access wants the column to be a number because 500-02 is not one of the first records.

If I use the acImport or acLink I get the same results. Which is an error importing (I get all the data just not the text values in the column) or a null value in the link when view from Access (even though you can open the spreadsheet with excel and see the true data). If I use the import Wizard and change the Field to text it that data is fine.

I also tried acImporting to an existing table with the field set a text but it changes it back to numeric and screws up.

I have a vision impared user and I need a button click to get this data into access.

Am using Windows 7 with 64 bits and I am trying to import information from an Excel7 spreadsheet into Printshop 23.1 mail merge. Have addressed several issues: Win 32 extension installed, turned Excel7 info into .txt format, have successfully merged the two.

What I am experiencing is ALL of the information (only 4 text columns) with 175 lines will not merge into workable file. I am told by the UltraMail Merge program that I can match column headings but when I do, the information is either in the wrong order OR missing certain fields altogether. I know this is an older version of Printshop (purchased in December of 2011) but I do not want to lose all my projects if I purchase a newer version. Any ideas on how to make this one work?

If not, do I need to uninstall my older version before installing new? OR, can I install the new and the old will merge?

Hi, I am looking for a macro to import contacts from excel. We are a team of 25 who all use the same contact list (which contains addresses, organisation name, tel numbers, emails, contact names etc for approx 600 organisations). We regularly have to bcc all these contacts in emails. We previously all held the distribution lists (sorted alphabetically by email) and had to let the rest of the team know when details changed. The problem with this was that the distribution lists do not hold all the information needed (e.g. addresses, organisation names) and contact information was not always updated as it should have been. I would like to create the macro for all the team so that they can periodicaly update their contacts. I trust this makes sense

Hi there,

I am trying to use SQL.REQUEST to pull data from one excel file (a master data file) to another one, and I can't get it to work. I think I don't have the correct connection string specified.

I'm using Excel 2002 on Windows 2000.

The task is, I need to build dynamic queries based on other cells in the "output" spreadsheet, such as, get a count of all records in the master file where the date field is equal to [cell reference] and the ID field is equal to [another cell reference] and a third field is equal to [third cell reference]...
So that, if the values in those referenced cells change, the records that match (and get counted up) will be different.
Also, there will be at least 10 different queries (I do a sum on a field that is a time duration, an average on that same field in another, etc) in different places on the spreadsheet.

I was able to get a simple query to work in Microsoft Query if I used static values, ie, I typed them directly into the criteria... however, these need to by dynamic so that when the same spreadsheet (a report template) is "saved-as" and new values for the criteria are input, the queries don't have to be re-created.

So, using MS Query, I can connect to the master data file and get the correct result... but I believe what I really need to use is SQL.REQUEST, so I downloaded the ODBC add-in and installed that.
I just can't seem to figure out what my connection string argument needs to be.
