i have a question about adding a number to a cell. This is the problem. Each day we track contacts we made in a spread sheet. how could i, lets say type 2 in a cell that already reads 42 and once a tab away from the cell it would change to 44 (add in the background 42+2=44).
I am trying to create a macro where it finds a a certain word in a column for example C. What i want it to do is find anything that says FWD_EUR and then replace that cell (e.g C2) with CASH_EUR_FWD and after it has done that it replaces the adjacent cell (e.g. D2) with EUR_FWD. I then want this to do the same with FWD_USD to CASH_USD_FWD and adjacent cell to USD_FWD.
In column N I would like a formula to add 3 columns,e.g. C and D and F. The problem is I want the symbol ~ replaced by 1.0 for calculation purposes.I need a solution in 1 column,if possible. I have made a few efforts,but just not getting there. See attached section of sheet.
I have a column of references I wish to standardize. Contained within a general text description there is also an order-specific reference number, which is not relevant for my purposes. I wish to find all of these numbers and replace them with nothing (i.e. retain the rest of the description).
The reference numbers are always in the format "P#####/##". Unfortunately these references are in the middle of the text field, not at the start or end, so I can't use a LEFT or RIGHT formula to delete them.
Once these reference numbers have been deleted I will then be able to filter for unique records only. When I do this at the moment the filtering has no effect due to these specific reference numbers.
This problem has come up fairly frequently lately, and I'm not sure how to fix it, or if this is by design...but in Excel 2003 I can't seem to do a "Find and Replace" based on the value of a cell. I can do a find, based on cell value, but the moment I change to the replace tab, the "values" and "comments" are missing from the "look in" dropdown.
I've only noticed this when I'm trying to replace on a filtered list, so I'm not sure if that is part of the issue.
Perhaps an alternative way of arriving at the same goal. Basically I have a worksheet with a number of filtered columns. They are filtered just right, using custom filtering, and so I do not want to undo the filters. In some columns I have formulas that are returning #VALUE! errors. I'd like to replace all of these cells with NA.
I recently became owner of a spreadsheet with some issues, and I am trying to make it useful. Each row has a URL of a blog post, and I want to extract the date from it (which is present in each URL) while getting rid of the rest of the URL. I was able to get rid of everything up to the year (which comes first), but then the URL continues, for example, 2013/05/16/the-rest-of-the-url/ and I would like to just have 2013/05/16 remain.
I am trying to use find and replace with the find box reading 2013/??/??/*/ and replacing it with 2013/??/?? which effectively erases everything else in the url, but leaves ?? instead of the numbers. Is there any way to have it so that it keeps whatever was in the original box?
Need assistance with the code for catching errors when using the find / replace function in excel? In particular, I am trying to write code to break to an error message when the value or string searched for isn't found in the find / replace. At the minute I have just copied the standard code using a macro and all this does is return a message box saying X entries replaced.
I have values in row A and I have values in row C. I want to create a loop to look up xxx and replace it with the values consecutively in row C. Look at example for a better Idea. I found a way to find and replace, but I not sure how to use it with qoutes. I was thinking maybe I dont even need row A and just supply a list and excel could have the chunk of data in the code itself.
I am working with a spreadsheet that has our user data; User(First) Name, User(Last) name, Computer Name, MAC address, Phone Number, Seating Position and Network Port Number.
I have let this get horribly out of sync, moved computers around, and moved them while the MAC address column was hidden, As a result, I have a bunch of users listed as being at the wrong computer. I have a second spreadsheet I generated that gives me the logged in user for about 2/3 of my computers, with the computer name(Just 2 columns, 'A' and 'B'. I would like to have Excel match the computer name and then overwrite the user name. For example, if the first computer in my correct user list is DELL-99945ty2, and the user name is "Jimbo Jones", I would like it to search the first Excel doc(The one with all of the user data), and replace the user name with "Jimbo Jones". Is this simple and straightforward?
In my main spreadsheet, the user name is in column B and the computer name is in column G, So I want to use the values from Column B in my second document to find its match in Column G of the first spreadsheet, and then replace the data in Column B with Column A in the first spreadsheet.
multiple search match and replace content in a different column so for example
new workbook (look up table) sku search1 search2
so something like where you compare two tables and find and replace based on another cell that matches in my sku.. more details would be if the table column aren't exactly matching but the column header and the row header would match and fill or replace in the correct/corresponding cell is there a macro or vba to do this job in excel?
In a sheet (4) I have a pivot refreshed by a VBA macro code. Since I have defined a Chart on this pivot, I need to copy this pivot in a new sheet to avoid to reduce rows using a filter of the Chart. I copy this pivot using this VBA code
Sheet4.Select Sheet4.Copy After:=Sheet2
I have e new sheet with a number Sheet(n) not equal to maximum sheet number +1
For a new run of the VBA macro I need to delete this sheet
Sheets(n).Select where (n) is not = maximum sheet number +1 ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Delete
Then I need to avoid the message box where I need to confirm to delete the sheet because the sheet is not empty.
Is there a solution to copy a pivot in a new sheet replacing the previous pivot and vithout changing the number of the sheet?
I have a file consisting of two columns, called, "bom ref" and "material" I need to show the data as indicated in the file, headed required format required.
In effect where I have a 0, that is the material I need to show for every row with a bom ref. of 1,2 or 3, down as far as the next 0 but not including the 0, when I reach the next 0, the material is a new letter, and that letter needs to repeat down as far as the next 0, but not including the 0 and so on.
The VP of our company needs me to create a spreadsheet.
For this s/s I need the following:
Imagine 2 sheets in Excel...
sheet2 has sequential numbers in column1 starting in row2 with the number 1 until wherever..., so cell A2 has number 1, cell A3 has number 2, etc...
Manually, a user has to fill in certain text next to a number.
This for example would look something like this:
_|A| B -|-|-----------------------------------| 1| | Error-description -|-|-----------------------------------| 2|1| Whatever the 1st error would be...| -|-|-----------------------------------| 3|2| Whatever the 2nd error would be...| -|-|-----------------------------------| 4|3| Whatever the 3rd error would be...| -|-|-----------------------------------| 5|4| -|-|-----------------------------------| 6|5| -|-|-----------------------------------| and so on...
All this would be on sheet2
In a cell on sheet1 I now need the number from column A displayed, that has the latest entry in column B.
In the example above this would have to be the number 3 in cell A4, because right next to it (in cell B4) is the last entry "Whatever the third error would be..."
Addition: There are several sheets, each sheet stands for one error listed on sheet1 in column A
I have a table that i would like to update. All my macro needs to do is search the entire first column of a table for a match to cell A1, there will only be 1 match, once the match is found row b's values need to replace the row thats entry in its first column matched cell A1.
I found the below code and have tried adapting it without success.
Code: Sub Colorize_Word() Dim Found As Range, FirstFound As String Dim FindWhat As String, MyColor As Long, Counter As Integer
MyColor = 3
FindWhat = LCase(InputBox("Find what word?", "Color word"))
This code finds any string in a cell of your choice and colors it red. I would really like to replace the string with my own string of text. I couldn't use the simple find and replace function as this replaces the WHOLE cell content not just one word.
I believe the line of code that needs editing most is this one
I have an empty cell that a user can enter in a value if they choose. What I would like to do is override their value with a formula based on the selection from a data validation list. The part with is how to override the cell contents.
I have some data in Column L starting from L5, some data in Column C starting from C5 and some data Column D starting from D5.
What I need is to replace the cell values in column K with adjacent cell values in column J if the adjacent cells in column L,C and D fulfills the criteria of GBP, GBp and cell values starting with GB(for column D) respectively. I need to do this via VBA.
Initially column C Column D Column J Column k Column L
GB123 GB 1 2 GBP
Desired results column C Column D Column J Column K Column L
