The sheet for now, needs to work on both excel 2007 & 2013 suites.

Is there a way of forcing the text file to be opened into a .xls file format.

I could work around it by saving the newly created file as a .xls format and then re-open it before moving into the destination sheet, but it's bugging me that I cant find a way of doing it without this workaround.

Code:

Sheets("Sheet1").Select

ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Delete

Workbooks.OpenText Filename:="P:\pilot\TOIC194.TXT", Origin:=xlWindows, StartRow:=2, DataType:=xlDelimited, TextQualifier:=xlNone, _

ConsecutiveDelimiter:=False, Tab:=False, Semicolon:=False, Comma:=True, Space:=False, Other:=False, FieldInfo:=Array( _

Array(1, 2), Array(2, 2), Array(3, 2), Array(4, 2), Array(5, 2), Array(6, 2), 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))

Sheets("TOIC194").Select

Sheets("TOIC194").Name = "Sheet1"

Sheets("Sheet1").Move Workbooks("fvd.XLS").Sheets(1)
