Excel Macro

by Shadow-28 / April 13, 2006 1:12 AM PDT

Hi...

I have create a macro on a worksheet by importing two different text files one below the other.

The two file names never change nor does it format(Though the two files have different formats)...

i would like to start importing the second file immediately from the next row to the one in which the first file ends...

Since number of rows dynamically change based on amount of data in both files(More importantly the first one)...I am unable to write a one time macro...

In a nutshell, I would like the macro to recognise the Keyboard movements, to find end of first file,
rather than hardcoding the row numbers

2 ideas.

1. If text, just concatenate the files so there is only one file to import. Hint: Batch file with ...

COPY FILE1+FILE2 FILE3

2. If more processing is required I used the old TXT2CSV programs years ago. Links:

Determining the end row of the current sheet

Assuming column A in your first import is fully populated, one way to determine the next free row in the sheet is to use the following VBA macro function:

lastrow = (activesheet.cells(65535,1).end(xlup).row) + 1

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
