Hi @, welcome to the forum!

Check if the following is what you need, change "myfile" to the name of your file.


Put the txt file in the same excel folder with the macro.


Code:
Sub Macro5()
  Dim wPath As String, wFile As String
  Application.ScreenUpdating = False
  Application.DisplayAlerts = False
  wPath = ThisWorkbook.Path & "\"
  wFile = "[COLOR=#ff0000]myfile[/COLOR]"
  Workbooks.OpenText Filename:=wPath & wFile & ".txt", Origin:=xlMSDOS, _
    StartRow:=1, DataType:=xlDelimited, TextQualifier:=xlNone, _
    ConsecutiveDelimiter:=False, Tab:=False, Semicolon:=False, Comma:=False, _
    Space:=False, Other:=True, OtherChar:="|", FieldInfo:=Array(Array(1, 1)), _
    TrailingMinusNumbers:=True
  ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=wPath & wFile & ".csv", _
    FileFormat:=xlCSV, CreateBackup:=False
  ActiveWorkbook.Close False
End Sub

  ActiveWorkbook.Close False
End Sub

the same folder where the macro is stored?

What did you expect?
You can upload 2 files to the cloud, a txt file with the original data and a csv file with the result of the first file conversion.

You could upload a copy of your file to a free site such www.dropbox.com. Once you do that, mark it for 'Sharing' and you will be given a link to the file that you can post here. If the workbook contains confidential information, you could replace it with generic data.
