Excel VBA Write to Text File
My Excel VBA application uses a batch file and Win zip to write into a text file a list of the contents of a zipped file. From this text file, I verify that the one file inside the zipped file has the expected file name and was zipped less that 30 days prior to the current date. This works, but here's the problem.
Between writing the text file and then opening it, Excel does not find the text file unless I put a delay in between these two actions. So adding a message box to interrupt the program after the file has been written allows Excel VBA to open the text file after the message box has been cleared. It may be that, even though I've closed the text file, VBA may be trying to read it before it gets closed and can't find it because it is still open.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to write a text file and fully close it before opening it in Excel VBA?
I would like to write a batch file from VBA but without the quotes. Here is some of the code followed by the results:
Open myBatFileName For Output As #1
Write #1, "@Echo Off"
I have searched and found info on writing to text files but not like this. I have a spreadsheet with several columns that need to be output as separate text files.
1 column in each file.
I am trying to automate the process of selecting each column, opening a new text file, pasting the column data, and saving the file. Is there a vb macro method for doing this?
