    How to specify a tab character in excel vba...

    Hi all,

    I am trying to use Chip Pearson's code for extracting text files.
    This is the link for it
    http://www.cpearson.com/excel/imptext.htm
    I like this code very much. It will allow you to specify any delimiter
    character. However, I don't know how to specify a tab character in vba.
    I tried "\t" like in unix, perl etc. No luck. So could you please tell
    me how can I specify a tab character in vba.
    Thanks in advance,

    shishi

    Hi Shishi,

    Try vbTab or chr(9).
