Hi
Let me get what you want correctly:

1) Do you want to select specific files in a certain directory and then when you click ok you want to import each and everyone of the files selected in the format you attached in the excel each file in 1 row all following each others.

or

2) Do you want to select a specific directory and then it would import ALL the files in that directory in the format you attached in the excel each file in 1 row all following each others.


pls advise

Hi 26lh

Despite you not answering my first querry, I have built the file to work in all possible situations.

Check out this file and here is how it works:

You can choose a folder to import and it will import all the text files 'AFTER' the last existing row in the current worksheet. You may also have the option to import selected files in any directory. To do this select the corresponding option when asked (choose [NO]) and when the open dialog show you all the text files then you may select 1 file all the files or simply select any file and press CTRL to select other files if you want the files selected not to follow)

After pressing ok the routine will import each file in one row all after the last existing row on your worksheet.

Please let me know your comments.

Hi Gowflow,

if there are 25 text files in a directory, there should be 25 rows of record in excel. one row in excel for 1 imported text file.

Hi goflow and HarryHYLee. thank you both for producing excellent results as required and more. I think it is fair to award both of you with 250 points each as both of you produced the best solution in a different way, unfortunately the system is not allowed for me to pick both of you that has produced best solution, so it's automatically picked one of you not me. once again thank you both.
