Using Importpath method

I have a macro to extract data from an Excel tab and reformat the data and write each line to a "TXT" file.

Previously the code was written to read a CSV file, but I have changed it to read from the current worksheet tab.

I was wondering how to name the correct import path for the sheet.

Here is the original code for the CSV file.

I have attached the code for the Start and Import Macro.

Thanks

Not exactly sure what you are looking for here, but I thought I'ed give it a shot.

Dim wb As Workbook, ws As Worksheet
Dim exportpath As String

exportpath = "C:\Users\Gpowers\Documents\TSI_Import.TXT"

Set wb = Workbooks.Open("C:\Users\GPowers\Documents\TSI.csv")
wb.Range("A20") = exportpath

Application.Run! "TSI_Assure.xlsm!Copy.Copy"
Application.Run! "Omission"
Application.Run! "Delete_Rows"
Application.Run! "TSI_Assure.xlsm!Import.Import"

application.Run

Open in new window

Yes, you can extract data from an Excel sheet and write it to a TXT file. Doing the same with a CSV file as source is more difficult because a CSV file is already in plain text format. The code which you say did the job is, in fact, calling macros in another workbook which you don't publish. Please don't! It will be a lot easier to just program what you want than to try and divine your intentions by implication.
When you write the values of all cells in a worksheet to a TXT file you are, in fact, creating a CSV file. The easiest way of doing that is to save the workbook in CSV format (File/SaveAs -> Format = CSV). You can then change the file extention to TXT and it will open in NotePad or another TXT editor.
