In Excel, it is possible to save text import settings (as a "template") and reuse them with any text file later. A blogpost by Excel MVP Jan Karel Pieterse describes this in detail:
The "text import template" is automatically created when you are done with Text Import Wizard. Make sure that you save your workbook to keep the "template".
To reuse it with another (or the same) text file:
- Click any cell within your sheet that holds (used to hold) data of a previous import.
- Excel 2007/2010: Click Data -> Refresh All dropdown -> Refresh
- Excel 2003 and older: Click Data -> Refresh Data
If you use this "template" to always import a file of the same name and location, you can customize the "template" so that Excel does not prompt you for a file name each time you hit the Refresh button.
During the text import, click Properties... in the Import Data dialog and untick Prompt for file name on refresh in the External Data Range Properties dialog. You can also edit that later in the Connection Properties dialog.
