Import A Pipe Delimited File (#) Into Access

Mar 5, 2009

Now i'm coding for a project in that allow user to browse to text files (i am done), after that i have to import this text file into access.

The problem i have to import a pipe delimited file (it is: #), that '#' help to distinguish each filed.

Example: my text file is: #BC2323#23241#12345. This mean that: There are 3 fileds in it: BC2323; 23241; 12345.

There is my coding for browse any text file:

Private Sub btnBrowse_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnBrowse.Click
Dim alltext, lineoftext As String
OpenFileDialog1.Filter = "Text files (*.txt)|*.TXT"

Import Comma Delimited File To Access?

Oct 21, 2011

I used to just code up a module that looked like this Ref to MS Access 11.0 Obj Lib was set

Dim myaccess as New Access.Application
myAccess = CreateObject("Access.Application")
myAccess.Visible = false

But now it seems that even with that ref included, none of these commands exist. From what I've been reading online, to do this via .net, you have to parse the file out and create a serious of SQL inserts. I'm assuming/hoping/praying that there is a more efficient way to do this...

Import Text File (delimited) Into SQL Table Through VB 2008

Sep 28, 2009

I have a VB project that reads data from SQL as well as pulls data from other files into SQL. I need to import a text file into SQL table; there is no headers in the file and table in SQL is already exists. I found a code in Forum and slightly modified it, but I'm still missing something. I'm not sure how to specify that the text file is delimited with "|" character? Also - since there is no headers - not sure how to import it into correct columns? On the code below I'm getting "Insert" syntax error; on prior version of the code I was getting "field F1 doesn't exist".

Import A Tab Delimited File Into Excel And Export It Back

Sep 24, 2009

I have to import a tab delimited file into Excel and export it back out to correct a formatting issue caused by FoxPro. I need to pad a column with 10, Zeros and that is good with this here: objxl.columns("B:B").numberformat="0000000000". However I have 2 cells in the sheet, row 1B and 2B that I want to exclude from the number format above. Because it is a date field and it writes to that same column so it pads my date. I do have a need to Pad that date field with mmddyyyy so I have to pad it 8 - zeros.

.net - Import A Tab Delimited File Into A Table : Avoiding 'End Of File' Errors?

Nov 4, 2009

I'm trying to import a tab delimited file into a table.The issue is, SOMETIMES, the file will include an awkward record that has two "null values" and causes my program to throw a "unexpected end of file".For example, each record will have 20 fields. But the last record will have only two fields (two null values), and hence, unexpected EOF.

Currently I'm using a StreamReader. I've tried counting the lines and telling bcp to stop reading before the "phantom nulls", but StreamReader gets an incorrect count of lines due to the "phantom nulls".I've tried the following code to get rid of all bogus code (code borrowed off the net). But it just replaces the fields with empty spaces (I'd like the result of no line left behind).

Public Sub RemoveBlankRowsFromCVSFile2(ByVal filepath As String)
If filepath = DBNull.Value.ToString() Or filepath.Length = 0 Then Throw New ArgumentNullException("filepath")
If (File.Exists(filepath) = False) Then Throw New FileNotFoundException("Could not find CSV file.", filepath)


I've tried using SSIS, but it encounters the EOF unexpected error.

DB/Reporting :: Import From Text File To Database (access)

Nov 10, 2009

I am trying to import a text file to an access database in VB2008 express. The text file I am testing with is a csv file with 34,000 records. The problem is this takes 2 minutes to read through all this and write it to the database. The actual text file I will be using in production has over 800,000 records and this will take a ridiculous amount of time. I think I am doing something wrong. I have posted my code below. I am reading a record, parsing out the fields to an array, then creating an SQL statement to insert the record and executing it.

reader = New IO.StreamReader(fname)
Do While reader.Peek() >= 0
linesread = linesread + 1

The first time i ran the code, it caused no error but no records where loaded into the table. The second time it causes the OleDbException "Table 'TEMP' already exists." The text file is comma delimited and it has exactly the same number of columns of the TEMP table.

I've got a problem reading in a Tab-Delimited text file. There's an extra tab in one of the fields its reading it thats not a delimiter, and it's throwing off me reading the file into a table. This specific file does have quotations around that field though.

What would be the best way to take that tab out before splitting the row by vbTab?

Im reading each line in the text field like this, splitting on vbTab. X is a string array

text = x(J).Split(vbTab)

Convert ArrayList To Delimited Text File?

Apr 30, 2009

I previously asked a question about my meeting planner app, and how to delete a specific entry in the array. Someone had the interesting suggestion of using a ArrayList, instead of a normal array. I am attempting to learn ArrayList, but to no good result. I can't even get the ToString method to work correctly to write what I want it to into a text file.[code]...

My plan is to have each of those three fields to have their own entry in the ArrayList, but when it is saved to text file, those three fields are comma delimited to a line for each appointment. Of course when the text is loaded, it will have to be converted back. Can anyone point me in the right direction or have any other method of going about this with the ArrayList?

VS 2008 Delimited Text File Into Array()?

I have a text file with for example this data in it :

"19 Mar 2010","6:00","16:00","10","1","9","6.61","59.49"
"20 Mar 2010","9:45","19:15","10","1","9","6.61","69.89"
"21 Mar 2010","9:00","17:00","8","1","8","6.61","99.32"

I used " , " to delimit individual pieces of data and " " to denote end of line.I'd like to be able to split the files into lines and assign each line to an array then split each of those array strings into the comma " , " delimited data and feed each piece of data into another array ready for writing to a datagridview.

I've spent a while trying to get Split() to work but I get errors regarding converting strings to one-dimensional arrays Also the Split() method asks for a "ParamArray" but I haven't been able to find examples of other people providing them on the net any idea what those are about?

What I am doing is I'm pulling strings of text from a backslash-delimited text file and throwing it into a (Of String, Array) dictionary. This info is then displayed, added to, removed from, through the use of the form. Changes to the entries (new, old, or otherwise) then need to be written back in the same delimited format to the text file.

DB/Reporting :: Perform SQL Queries On A Text Tab Delimited File

Aug 24, 2010

I have a program that generates text tab-delimited files with a header row and sometimes a units row followed by data.


FirstName LastName Birthday
Michael Jordan 6/6/66
Alan Jackson 7/7/77


FirstName LastName Birthday
Name Name Date
Michael Jordan 6/6/66
Alan Jackson 7/7/77

I would like to be able to perform SQL queries on these files. How can I connect to a text tab delimited file to either pretend it is a database table or import it into SQL as a table, preferably through VB.NET? I could have 300,000 rows, and the fields are all numbers, not text... I have manually imported these files into SQL before using management studio, so I know it is possible but I would love to be able to do it programmatically.

Is there any way I can get the SQL code from this process because it does exactly what I need it to do but it is manual. There is an SSIS package that I saved, but I do not know what that is.
