I am taking a .txt file delimiting it and exporting to excel. I need to add a row (column names) from a different spreadsheet to where my exported spreadsheet exists.  
thanks in advance
strExcelPath = "C:\myfiles\header.xls"
 

Const ForReading = 1

Const ForWriting = 2
 

'Added to save changes without being prompted by Excel

Const xlSaveChanges = 1
 

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
 

Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\myfiles\test.txt", ForReading)

strContents = objFile.ReadAll

objFile.Close
 

strContents = Replace(strContents, "|", vbTab)
 

Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\myfiles\test.txt", ForWriting)

objFile.Write strContents

objFile.Close
 

Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

'Add row here???

'Shift all other values down

Set objWorkbook = objExcel.Workbooks.Open("C:\myfiles\test.txt")

objExcel.ActiveWorkbook.cells.addrow("1,1")

objExcel.ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs strExcelPath

objExcel.ActiveWorkbook.Close xlSaveChanges

objExcel.Application.Quit

WScript.Echo "The Upload is Complete"

Instead of:
objExcel.ActiveWorkbook.cells.addrow("1,1")


Try:
objExcel.ActiveWorkbook.ActiveWorksheet.Rows(1).Insert

One option would be to insert the line when you write the file (rather than after importing into Excel).  That might look something like this:
Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\myfiles\test.txt", ForReading)

strContents = objFile.ReadAll

objFile.Close

 

strContents = Replace(strContents, "|", vbTab)

 

Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\myfiles\test.txt", ForWriting)

 

' REM added this line --------------------------

objFile.Write "clm1" +vbTab+ "clm2" +vbTab+ "clm3" +vbCr

 

objFile.Write strContents

objFile.Close

DanRollins,

I like your approach. Could I open another WorkBook and grab a row from a Worksheet and paste it into the original Workbook, Worksheet?

thanks much,

I suppose so.  You would need to access functions of your objExcel object and extract the desired text from the specidied cells.  I have little experience with the Excel object model.
