Using PowerShell to generate a large test CSV file with random data
Jose Barreto
I recently posted a new blog that shows how to load a very large CSV file into Excel, breaking the limit of 1 million rows in a single Excel sheet. If you haven’t seen it, you should check it out: Loading CSV/text files with more than a million rows into Excel. One of the challenges for me while writing that blog post was finding sample data to demonstrate that Excel feature. I have a few files that are that big from work, but obviously I could not share those publicly. I also tried to [read].

Loading CSV/text files with more than a million rows into Excel
Jose Barreto
1. The Problem If you usually load a very large CSV (comma-separated values) file or text file into Excel, you might run into the dreaded “File not loaded completely” message: As the message explains, the file you are trying to load is too large for Excel to handle. For me, it typically happens with large log files with more than 1 million rows (technically more than 1,048,576 rows). The proposed workarounds involve breaking the file into smaller chunks or using another applicat [read].

Interesting OOF messages
Jose Barreto
It’s that time of the year when everyone is taking time off and some of us will leave out-of-office messages. The typical boring OOF (shouldn’t they be called OOO or OoOf?) should tell when you’re coming back and the e-mail of the poor soul that will be in the office during this time. It reads like: I am OOF on vacation until January 3rd. For urgent issues, please e-mail someoneelse@company.com However, to make things interesting, I sometimes write some more interesting OO [read].

PowerShell script organizes pictures in your OneDrive camera roll folder
Jose Barreto
I just published a new PowerShell script that organizes pictures in your OneDrive camera roll folder. It creates folders named after the year and month, then moves picture files to them. Existing files will be renamed in case of conflict. Empty folders left behind after the files are moved will be removed.  It defaults to your OneDrive camera roll folder, but you can use a parameter to specify another folder. There are also parameters to skip confirmation, skip existing files in case of confli [read].
