Large txt file import macro

 I asked a longtime ago for a macro to allow large text 
files to be imported over several sheets within one work 
book, this worked great, however my machine has been 
rebuilt and I failed to keep the macro, 

can some nice person please supply a link again .

Many thx

The usual code is below.

MS Excel MVP

Sub LargeFileImport()
'Dimension Variables
Dim ResultStr As String
Dim FileName As String
Dim FileNum As Integer
Dim Counter As Double
'Ask User for File's Name
FileName = Application.GetOpenFilename
'Check for no entry
If FileName = "" Then End
'Get Next Available File Handle Number
FileNum = FreeFile()
'Open Text File For Input
Open FileName For Input As #FileNum
'Turn Screen Updating Off
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
'Create A New WorkBook With One Worksheet In It
Workbooks.Add Template:=xlWorksheet
'Set The Counter to 1
Counter = 1
'Loop Until the End Of File Is Reached
Do While Seek(FileNum) <= LOF(FileNum)
'Display Importing Row Number On Status Bar
Application.StatusBar = "Importing Row " & _
Counter & " of text file " & FileName
'Store One Line Of Text From File To Variable
Line Input #FileNum, ResultStr
'Store Variable Data Into Active Cell
If Left(ResultStr, 1) = "=" Then
ActiveCell.Value = "'" & ResultStr
ActiveCell.Value = ResultStr
End If
'For xl95 change 65536 to 16384
If ActiveCell.Row = 65536 Then
'If On The Last Row Then Add A New Sheet
'If Not The Last Row Then Go One Cell Down
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
End If
'Increment the Counter By 1
Counter = Counter + 1
'Start Again At Top Of 'Do While' Statement
'Close The Open Text File
'Remove Message From Status Bar
Application.StatusBar = False
End Sub

Pictures with Macro's attached to it are displayed as red cross

File extensions
I have a macro that when running activates a file that is already open, this file is called 'File1'. When 'File1' is active it is shown as 'File1.xls' but the macro is looking for 'File1' (no extension) and cannot find it. This is a problem that I have only had recently and all other macro's/links have worked. I have not upgraded to a newer version of Excel recently (currently using Office '97 I think). Is there a way of rectifying this without having to amend every macro/link that I am using? I don't think this is an Excel problem, unle...

Saving OFX files from California Bank Of America...convert ofx?
All, I've seen similar posts, but not exactly the same. I saved an OFX from California BofA, and I can no longer retrieve the data in a different format (it's older than their three month deadline). When I try to import it, I get the familiar 'There is a problem with the data received from this online provider. If the problem persists, call the provider's customer service number for help.' Can I convert the OFX to OFC or QIF (which had worked for me previously). It seems like there are conversion utilities for almost every other format to OFX, but not from ...

Macro to produce Gantt Chart
I am trying to produce a Gantt Chart based on a set of Start Dates and End Dates for Activities. I do not want the Gantt to be coloring cells but drawing a rectangle with a certain color. A manually produced sample Gantt Chart is attached to clarify my idea. I would be interested in a macro that would read the cells containing the time scale (Jan to Jul 2004 in cells E5 to K5), read the start and end dates (cells C6 to D9) of the activities and produce the Gantt Bars in a color to be selected by the user. If this would make it easier, reading the start and end dates from the current row an...

What is File = 1
Hi, In my SQL Server 2008, I tried to restore some db. I searfed the internet and found some command like Restore MyDB FROM DISK = 'C:\BackUp\.bak' WITH file=1, RECOVERY I am wondering what the 'file = 1 is. Thanks for help. Jason In this context it is the first backup within the backup file. Unless you use INIT or FORMAT within the BACKUP command any new backups you do will add to the current file (if one exists).

Shorcuts or Macro for Creating If Else Statements
I create if else statements often. But I find it tedious to have to type them and redefine them all the time for different workbooks. For example, let's say you want this type of if else condition for calculating price to earnings: a1=price; b1=earnings =if ( iserror( a1/b1),"n/a", if (or( a1/b1<0, a1/b1>100),"nmf", a1/b1)) Is there a way of shortening this? What I mean is, of course I can copy this down the column and calculate a bunch of P/Es for a bunch of companies. I'm trying to see if there is a macro or short cut that will help you create if el...

Tidying up Office Data Files
My Office Data files are in a mess. I have discovered that I have Outlook (approx 0.8GB) and Outlook1 (approx 0.8GB) Mailbox (32KB) and Archive (0.35GB).

I would like to re-combine everything into 1 file so that I can start again and set up a proper Archive system again.

When I have 2 seperate excel files open...and I click on the red 'x' on the top right on one of the files...both files close. How can I get it to only close the 1 file I'm clicking on? Thanks, Frank. Hi Frank, Look just below the red X; the three symbols (miminize, restore and close) are repeated but in a simpler format. These control a workbook while the top one control the Excel application. If you ever want to close all the file but leave Excel open, hold down Shift and open the File menu - look for a new item "Close All". Bernard "Frank DAlessandro" ...

quotation marks after import
