import data in excel from text file

Hi Experts,

I have 100000 lines in text file which are in file 'current' format.
request to achieve the format as in  'final' excel fromat

the VB script should be able to match the column heading and have data in the corresponding rows.


It would be ideal: If the column heading does not exist script should be able to create a heading too.
Current.txt
final.xlsx

1. Can we assume that the header in the xlsx will be there when we import the data ? as you may notice it is not always that all fields in each group that are represented, so it would be better to have at least the header to start with. Can we assume that ?

2. Can you post a .txt that have a bit more records ? no need for 100000 but 2 only is really the low end.

I have assumed that the header is there in the final output.

1) Please make sure macros are activated
2) I created a backup of your sheet1 so you can compare the results.
3) I created Sheet2 where I pasted on the header. Position yourself in Sheet2 actually for this macro to run oyu only need to be positioned in the sheet where you need to data to be extracted to,
4) Go to Developper Tab and press on Macro and select ImportText and check the results.

For sure it would be better to have more data so we can check if all is ok.
