Copy text file data in workbook.

Hi Experts,

I would like to request Experts help create a VBA code to extract data from .txt file (source) into DailyData workbook according to the header. I have copied a sample data in DailyData workbook for Experts perusal. I have copied the source (.txt) files in a D folder (D:\data) and the code should be able to loop copy the files without overwriting the old data. Hope Experts could help me create this feature. Attached the workbook and the data (source) file for Experts perusal.



DailyData.xls
source.txt

Does this mean that there is a possibility that the text file will have the fields in diffrent sorting and will need them to sort as the Excel header or they will come always in the same order ?

Will all your text files be in the same layout like ----------------- in the begining then data ?
Can you pls post also 2 or 3 more text files so I can build it with more files reading ?

Hi gowflow,

One more thing, can we make sure the "time" that we copied at column F is exactly same with the source file?

Hi Cartillo,
Pls try this version. Version where:
1) Accept multiple files once prompt select all available files by highlighting all of them like click on the first and press shift then click on the last one.
2) header only printed once.
3) Time is correctly formated.

Pls advise your comments and modifications if required.
