Record a macro doing it yourself and then edit/cut/paste the macro.

Will the file to be processed be in a CSV format, or in an XLS format?

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

I found another solution that will not require a macro or a VB Script. I changed something in my query that was producing this CSV file Thank you all

Great, always the best approach when you can adjust at the source.

Here's a quick example of this, adjust the replace logic as needed.  Save as a VBS file, and run like this:

cscript EE27312667.vbs EE27312667.csv EE27312667.new
or
cscript EE27312667.vbs EE27312667.csv

In the first case the first file will be read, and the updated version written to a new file specified by the second parm.  In the second example the initial file will be overwritten with the changed version.

' Define needed constants
Const ForReading = 1
Const ForWriting = 2
Const TriStateUseDefault = -2

' Get input file name from command line parm, if 2 parms entered
' use second as new output file, else rewrite to input file
If (WScript.Arguments.Count > 0) Then
  sInfile = WScript.Arguments(0)
Else
  WScript.Echo "No filename specified."
  WScript.Quit
End If
If (WScript.Arguments.Count > 1) Then
  sOutfile = WScript.Arguments(1)
Else
  sOutfile = sInfile
End If

' Create file system object
Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

' Read entire input file into a variable and close it
Set oInfile = oFSO.OpenTextFile(sInfile, ForReading, False, TriStateUseDefault)
sData = oInfile.ReadAll
oInfile.Close
Set oInfile = Nothing

' Replace commas (,) with pipes (|)
sData = Replace(sData, ",123,", ",Hello_World,", 1, 1, 1)

' Write file with any changes made
Set oOutfile = oFSO.OpenTextFile(sOutfile, ForWriting, True)
oOutfile.Write(sData)
oOutfile.Close
Set oOutfile = Nothing

' Cleanup and end
Set oFSO = Nothing
Wscript.Quit

Open in new window
