Add Prefix To Selected Cells

Oct 19, 2007

for a small online database I have a column that lists nationalities:

Latin American
(etc etc)

I need to add a prefix to all nationalities, for example:

Artist Nationality///French
Artist Nationality///Spanish
Artist Nationality///American
Artist Nationality///Latin American
(etc etc)

Is there a way I can select the 700 cells and do this in one shot? I can't add formulas because I will have to paste all this in text pad and then upload it.

Prefix Cells With Text

Dec 7, 2007

I want to add "CR" to the beginning of every cell that already has data. I know I could do =a1 and it would copy all the way down. However each cell has different data and I'd like to keep it that way but add 2 letters in the beginning.

Replace One Prefix With Another Prefix

Jan 23, 2010

UDC 01_001 template black.jpgBatch 01_385 template white.jpg
UDC 01_001 template blue.jpgBatch 01_385 template blue.jpg
UDC 01_001 template grey.jpgBatch 01_385 template grey.jpg
UDC 01_001 template pink.jpgBatch 01_385 template pink.jpg
UDC 01_001 template white.jpgBatch 01_385 template black.jpg

I have 100s of urls with prefix as the left column. I need to rename them to the right column format. UDC 01_001 will take number Batch 01_385, UDC 01_002 will use Batch 01_386 and so on.

I cant figure out how to do this in one quick macro instead of replace function.

Fill Range Of Cells With Text When Listbox Option Selected - Clear When Not Selected

Jul 25, 2014

I am using this code to hide or unhide rows of text on another sheet:

Sub ProcessSheet1ChangeOnCellJ7(ByVal Target As Range)

Dim sAddress As String
Dim sValue As String

'Get the address of the cell that changed without '$' signs
sAddress = Target.Address(False, False)


When the "Not Pursuing" list box option is selected (in cell "J7" or "J8" in Sheet 1) I need to add (or over-write) "Not Pursuing" to the range of cells in column "B" (in the "Tasks" sheet), but only for that particular Goal, meaning a limited range of cells in column "B". If the "Pursuing - Show All Tasks" option is selected for a Goal then these same cells need to be blank so that the appropriate person can enter their name into the cell.

The purpose for adding "Not Pursuing" automatically to these yellow highlighted cells is that it will facilitate filtering of tasks by individual in the "Tasks" sheet..

Again I have tried several times to upload a sample file and am unable to, which I know makes it more difficult to solve. (Is there some common mistake people make? I know it's an allowed format and is very small in file size....)

Code solution can be entered directly beneath:

If Target.Value = "Not Pursuing" Then
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Tasks").Rows("29:29").EntireRow.Hidden = False
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Tasks").Rows("30:48").EntireRow.Hidden = True

Count Number Of Equal Cells With A Prefix In Col D And Insert Count In Col A?

Aug 7, 2013

I need to count the number of equal cells in col D beginning at the top of the column. The counted cells must begin with a text prefix of "Category:" without the quotes.

Some but not all of the cells in col D begin with a prefix of "Category:" without the quotes, followed by a word or words following the word "Category:" See examples below. All of the terms prefixed with "Category:" in col D are in alphabetical order. I need to count the number of identical cells in col D with the "Category:" prefix.

Examples of the contents of cells in col D with the "Category:" prefix are as follows:

Category: Adversity
Category: Answers
Category: Assurance
Category: Blessings
Category: Build
Category: Change
Category: Children
Category: Choices

Cells above and below cells with a prefix of "Category:" in col D are not adjacent.Cells above and below cells with a prefix of "Category:" in col D are separated by 3 to an undermined number of rows.

I need to count the number of equal cells in col D and insert the count in col A at the last equal term. For example, col A above would have 93, 1, 1, 5, 10, 8, 3, and 12 inserted into col A.

How To VLOOKUP With Prefix

Dec 12, 2013

G1 = will be one of these 12 choices: 01 January or 02 February or 03 March...or 12 December
K2 = Date I performed the task
D2 = Name of Inspector

I usually manually input on G2 the name of the report.

G1 = 12 December
K2 = 12/05/2013
D2 = Chris Mart

Therefore, I need to manually input on D2 = 13-12-MARTCL


MARTCL comes from a table where I have all the inspectors and their corresponding username.

That table is O2:P63. O1= Title of row (Username), P1 = Title of row (Name of inspector)

13 = year extracted from 12/05/2013
12 = Month of inspection (which can be extracted from G1 or K2)

How do I use cell reference AND VLOOKUP to create 13-12-MARTCL on G2?

Add A Text Prefix

Oct 25, 2008

I have a colummn of data (text data). For my purposes I would need to add a prefix text to every single cell contained in that column; for instance, if I have a cell with a text "hellohowareyou" ,

I would need to change it by adding to it a constant prefixation text "es_ES@" so that the final result would be displayed like "es_ES@hellohowareyou" , and so on for the rest of the cells under the same column.

VBA - File Prefix Only?

Jan 3, 2009

Say I have a workbook called test1.xls, where the number 1 at the end of the file name is variable. Tomorrow that character could be 2 so the file would become test2.xls etc (or could even be a letter for what it matters).

Is there a way in Visual Basic to recognize that the final character is not fixed but can get different values each time? Or in other words to recognize that the file starts with "test", and that whatever follows that prefix is not relevant?

For example....

If = "'test*.xls" Then...

where * (star) could be any character.

As a Windows analogy, I am thinking of the * (star) character when one searches a certain directory for, say, Excel files (*.xls etc). Obviously, in VBE that doesn't work, and the star is just a character like any other.

Trying To Use IF Statement For Prefix Only

Jul 1, 2006

Iím making a database to forklifts. Most used code I have found from this forum. I havenít found a way how to copy existing formulas on summary sheet so that sheet name is also changed in formula. I attached also my workbook, but itís not in English language but in Estonian. I hope that isnít problem.

If pressed button on summary sheet (ďPealehtĒ) then existing blank sheet are copied and renamed. On userform1 is textbox3 which value added to summary sheet, also combobox4 value added to summary sheet. Now I want that if pressed commandButton1 on userform1 then all formulas what exist on summary sheet from F6 to CW6 are also copied to next row and in formula sheet name changed. My second question is what to write that if new sheet created then it goes always to end of existing sheets. Right now Iím using code what copies new sheet after blank sheet but itís not satisfying me.

Filtering In Dropdowns With A Prefix

Feb 20, 2010

I'm not a novice but this might be something simple I didn't realize. I am creating a quoting sheet for a steel fab company. I have created dopdowns for the different materials and sizes but the dropdown is way too big. I need to have a column that helps me filter the dropdown more so I don't have to scroll through litterally hundreds of steels to find the one I need. The good news is that most steels have prefixes that make them easier to filter.

For example:




What I'm looking for is a way to have a dropdown that has all of the prefixes (L, C, MC, W, PL, etc) in it and when I select one of them the next column (the actual description of the steel as shown above) will only give me the specific steels for that steel shape (L,C,W,etc)

Currently I'm putting one row of say the MC shapes and one row of the C shapes and one row of the L shapes then copying them as needed. It's a lot of work and you can easily make a mistake.

Vlookup Based On Prefix

Feb 11, 2009

I have a table like below
1 x1234 value
2 y1234 value

If I want to look for all values that start with "x", is there a way to do it within a vlookup formula? Something like: vlookup("x*", A1:B2, 2, False). I know there's other ways to do this, but I want it all contained in one formula instead of splitting the A column using LEFT(A1, 1).

Removing 1- Prefix In Phone #'s

Apr 9, 2009

I read the thread below on how to utilize the Subsitute function to remove periods and thought about being able to use it for this. However, I have some phone #'s in my list that contain multiple 1- scenarios in them because the area code or 3-digit prefix sometimes include a 1- also. How do I make the formula only look at the 1- for long distance and not any other 1- found in the phone #? I want to remove all of the 1- for long distance because we are trying to use a new autodialer that is pre-programmed with the 1-.

Delete Worksheets With Specified Prefix

Nov 7, 2009

I have several excel workbooks with many worksheets (over 500 in some). Around a third of these worksheets are named "Exp1", "Exp2", "Exp3", etc.

I would like a macro that will delete all worksheets that do not have names starting with the letters "Exp". I do not want any confirmation dialogue, and as the workbooks vary in size, I would like it to finish when there are no sheets left (except the Exp ones of course).

Insert Prefix Based On Cell Value?

Jun 3, 2014

I have lists of numbers in column A. Based on the number in the cell, I would like to insert RO_ or RP_ before the number. I currently have two buttons for this, one named RO and the other RP and have simply recorded a macro of what I wish to do. However, instead of inserting RO_ or RP_ before the number the macro replaces the hole lot with "RP_10" or "RO_10" as this was the cell i recorded the macro on. How do I make it so it just inserts the Prefix rather than replace the contents of the cell.

Currently my code for one of the buttons is as follows;

Im basicaly pulling a report wherein the details will have a column as number.

It basicaly should be a three digit number. The tool will have the information as below.


But when im pulling out the report into excel, the zeros in the prefix goes away and the report looks like the below


I just checked the tools previllages and it seems that we cannot do anyting in pulling the data as it is in the tool.

So wht im trying to do is to save the report in a folder where i have placed a validation sheet which will have references of the parent report.

So when i open the report the reference will pull up the data and in here i would like to add a validation which will add "0" in the prefix if VNO is a 2 digit number or "00" if the VNO is a one digit number.

Lookup Code Prefix From Another Page And Autofill With Alphanumeric Sequence

Mar 24, 2014

I'm looking to populate a series of sequential codes based on a code prefix.

Sheet 1: Master Code list
Column A = Lookup Value
Column B = Code Prefix

Sheet 2 - Results page
Column A - list of lookup values - sorted in value order - The number of occurances varies for each value
Column B - Results list

I want to populate Column B in the second sheet with a sequential code list for each different value in column A. So for the first value it would have the prefix then proceed numerically (Prefix0001, Prefix0002, Prefix0003...) then for the next value its prefix in sequence (2ndPrefix0001, 2ndPrefix0002, 2ndPrefix003...), etc

I'm wondering if there is a way to do this all in one step or else if there is a way way to number each occurance of the lookup value in the second page, in which case the code can be concatenated easily by a lookup of the code.

I suppose on the back of this there is another query - is there a way to concatenate a number where the format is 000# where the concatenated value will retain the leading zeros? I've been trying and it is stripping them out.
