Hi,
I recorded an excel macro to open up a space delimited .dat file, copy it over to an excel spreadsheet and then save it as an excel file.But when I run it I get an error message saying "Compile Error: Out of Memory". The dat file itself is only 993 KB so what is the problem? Here is the code:

Sub dat_to_xls()
'
Workbooks.OpenText FileName:= _
"N:prod dataEMSIE_Weeklyie_weekly_use_aug_2002.dat", Origin:=xlWindows, _
StartRow:=1, DataType:=xlDelimited, TextQualifier:=xlDoubleQuote, _
ConsecutiveDelimiter:=False, Tab:=True, Semicolon:=False, Comma:=False _
, Space:=False, Other:=False, FieldInfo:=Array(Array(1, 1), Array(2, 1), _
Array(3, 1), Array(4, 1), Array(5, 1), Array(6, 1), Array(7, 1), Array(8, 1), Array(9, 1), _
Array(10, 1), Array(11, 1), Array(12, 1), Array(13, 1), Array(14, 1), Array(15, 1), Array( _
16, 1), Array(17, 1), Array(18, 1), Array(19, 1), Array(20, 1), Array(21, 1), Array(22, 1), _
Array(23, 1), Array(24, 1), Array(25, 1), Array(26, 1), Array(27, 1), Array(28, 1), Array( _
29, 1), Array(30, 1), Array(31, 1), Array(32, 1), Array(33, 1), Array(34, 1), Array(35, 1), _
Array(36, 1), Array(37, 1), Array(38, 1), Array(39, 1), Array(40, 1), Array(41, 1), Array( _
42, 1), Array(43, 1), Array(44, 1), Array(45, 1), Array(46, 1), Array(47, 1), Array(48, 1), _
Array(49, 1), Array(50, 1), Array(51, 1), Array(52, 1), Array(53, 1), Array(54, 1), Array( _
55, 1), Array(56, 1), Array(57, 1), Array(58, 1), Array(59, 1), Array(60, 1), Array(61, 1), _
Array(62, 1), Array(63, 1), Array(64, 1), Array(65, 1), Array(66, 1), Array(67, 1))
Columns("A:BO").Select
Selection.Columns.AutoFit
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll ToRight:=58
Columns("BI:BO").Select
Selection.Delete Shift:=xlToLeft
ActiveWindow.LargeScroll ToRight:=-5
ChDir "N:dperf"
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs FileName:="N:dperfie_weekly_use_aug_2002.xls", _
FileFormat:=xlNormal, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", _
ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, CreateBackup:=False
End Sub


I get the error message at the Array(58, 1) part of the code. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

If:

1. The file is Tab limited, which seems to be the case because Tab:=True and Space:=False, and

2. You want to import the entire file

you can remove the FieldInfo argument (delete ", FieldInfo:=" to "Array(67, 1))".

Andrew Poulsom,
Thanks a lot for your suggestion, I deleted the field info part of the code as you said and it worked. Have a great day!
