Excel/Exporting to Pipe delimited text file


Hi Tom,

Here is another question for the same excel workbook which I sent you just now. I have Macro called "PipeDelimited" which works fine and exports the data in Text pipe delimited file.

But when exporting the data from "Temporary Products" it skips the blank columns in last, though I have given a range (A:Y) but it is only considering the last column which has the value.

I would like to get all the 25 columns (A to Y) in my text file. It should show up though there is empty cell in the file.

Please help.


I made this modification:

'While Right(CurrTextStr, 1) = ListSep
If Right(CurrTextStr, 1) = ListSep Then
CurrTextStr = Left(CurrTextStr, Len(CurrTextStr) - 1)
End If

you only need to remove the rigthmost ListSep character 1 time.  So no While ... Wend statement.
