    VBA Code to Eliminate Trailing Commas in CSV File

    I have a macro that will parse data and save it as a csv. Unfortunately, since I save it as a csv, it leaves a trail of commas in the file for any row that does not reach all of the headers so I have to manually open the file and backspace out all of the trailing commas.

    Is there a simple macro that could basically append the file that gets saved and eliminate commas that are located at the end of the line?

    Re: VBA Code to Eliminate Trailing Commas in CSV File

    Here is how the file gets saved. The start and end in the header are variable. It could be one column long or it could be 100. When I save it as a csv, the body of the data always goes out to the very end, but I need the commas to stop at the end of line.

    Perhaps you could run something like this on the file after it's saved?

    Question Re: VBA Code to Eliminate Trailing Commas in CSV File


    According to csv file format, as your data used 14 columns so each text line must have 13 commas as delimiters
    so your post #3 csv attachment is totally correct, nothin' to change !

    Question : why by hell do you need to create some csv file which does very not respect the csv file format ?!
