Add Cell Content Into Formula Command In Another Cell For Multiple Files Search

Apr 12, 2014

How to determine the correct formula for this requirement?

Assuming I have 2 individual excel files and an index excel file (in reality, there are more than hundreds of file). For index excel, once the user enter part number (eg. 1 or 2), the excel will look for the part number excel file and determine vlookup function.

The only problem I have here is I can not make the index file automatically add the part number shown on most left column into the required formula (replace the part number file section).

I tried use the indirect function but this require each file to be opened, which is not possible for actual use. I am looking for a function that can work in closed worksheet.

Read Cell Content And Use That In A (search) Url

Jul 9, 2007

is it possible to read cell content and use that in a (search)url? somekind of auto-layout or what ever?

i'd have a collumn which has a lot of titles (in different cells), is it possible some way or another to read the content of the different cells and to apply that (in an array?) to an URL?

so use 1 url and add the different cell content as a variable to it?
i.e. i'd like to use this url: [url]=[url] for the whole collumn and automatically all new lines that might be added and ,,CELL-INFO'' should be replaced bij the different cell content in the column (Column:A)

Search Using Cell Content/Text

Oct 4, 2006

need to do a search based on the contents of a cell, but this cell wil change from minute to minute, so the result of that search will obviously differ each time. So far, the relevant line of macro/VBA code is only searching for what was in the cell at the initial time of recording the macro, for example:

Cells.Find(What:="Allen", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:= _
xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False _
, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
Application.CutCopyMode = False

...searches for "Allen" each time, no matter what the contents of the cell which contained "Allen" initially, is now.

Multiple Find And Replace Cell Content Based On Another Cell?

Mar 25, 2014

multiple search match and replace content in a different column so for example

new workbook (look up table)
sku
search1
search2

[Code]....

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?

Using A Formula To Populate A Cell With Certain Data Based On Content Of Another Cell?

Jul 7, 2014

I am currently trying to create a spreadsheet whereby if I enter certain text in a cell in Column A on worksheet 1 that correlates with text in a cell in Column A on Worksheet 2, then the description in Column B in Worksheet 2 is entered into Column B on worksheet 1.

For example, if worksheet 2 has the following:

Column A Column B
XXXX PRODUCT 1
YYYY PRODUCT 2

and I enter XXXX in column A on worksheet 1, I want Column B on worksheet 1 to automatically enter PRODUCT 1.

Import Multiple TXT Files Content To Respective Cells In Spreadsheet VBA

Feb 13, 2014

In spreadsheet attached, column F is populated with file names. I need VB script to import content of each respective file into corresponding cell in column E.

I've got over 25k of records and the same amount of txt files that I need to insert into cells. I have found this script :

VB:
Sub MikeMaster()
Dim x As Integer
Dim temp
Dim i As Integer
Dim Drive As String

[Code] .....

But need to modify it to do something like this: read cell from column F (Text File) > find file with corresponding name in given folder > Insert content of that text file into corresponding cell in column E (Description) > go to next row and do the same.

Search For Files Containing Specific Text In Cell

Jan 2, 2009

I cannot find Excel files that contain specific strings. For example, if I create a new file, and in the first cell type in "123456". Then save the file to the folder c:Temp Then in Windows Explorer, right-click on C:Temp and select "Search . . ." Then under "A word or phrase in the file", type in: 123456
It will NOT find the file! It will find a txt file or a doc file, but not xls files.

I thought maybe it fails because that is a number. But I have hundreds of Excel files with Integer numbers stored in "General" format cells and I desperately need to be able to search them to see which files contain certain numbers. It all started with some files that were sent to me - they work PERFECTLY for searching cells for numbers. So strange - yet if I open the file then save it . . . no changes or edits at all, just Open and Save. . . then the search fails for all numbers in that file. This is so perplexing that I have placed 2 zip Sample files on my website for you to Download: http://www.infocellar.com/Samples.zip

Unzip the two files to any folder. One is named "Sample-Works.xls" - Then do a Windows Search for any number in the file, here is one to try that is in the two files: 174026 And it will list "Sample-Works.xls" but it will NOT list "Sample-Fails.xls", even though BOTH FILES ARE IDENTICAL! I copied the same file twice and then named them. The only difference is that I opened the file Sample-Fails.xls and then immediately Saved it, which as I stated earlier, makes it fail all Searches from that point forward.

Using Named Cell Content Value In VLookup Formula?

Jun 10, 2013

I am trying to reference a named cell in a VLOOKUP formula as the table_array parameter.

The Named Cell "Input1" contains a table array definition of '[Test.xls]Sheet1'!$H$10:$J$100

When I try VLOOKUP($D3,Input1,3,0) - This returns #N/A as a result.

When I try VLOOKUP($D3,INDIRECT(Input1),3,0) - This returns a #REF error.

When I copy and past the contents of the Input1 named cell directly into the VLOOKUP formula, it works so I know the array reference is valid.

I am not proficient in VBA so I would like to accomplish this using basic Excel formulas if possible. how I can reference the named cell and have the cell value returned in the VLOOKUP function?

Adding Multiple Row Contents Based On The Content Of A Single Cell

May 30, 2007

Been trying to work this one out and have ended up banging my head against the wall.

Basically I have a spreadsheet, in the first column is the person's name, in the secon which team they are in and following this a cell for each day of the month with their availability.

The team name is a selection from a list, the availability is 1-6 (different levels of availability)

I'm trying to do subtotals at the bottom for each separate team, so the very last row each of the cells for each is added up:

Name Team 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th etc.
Mr X ___1st___1______2__1
Mr Y ___2nd_______2________5__5__5
Mr Z ___1st___1____________3__3__3

Total 1st: 2 2 1 3 3 3
Total 2nd: 2 5 5 5

So basically the formula in the last row goes along the lines of:

Add each cell in the column IF the team name = 1st

Search For & Merge List Of Text Files Named In Worksheet And Paste In A Specifc Cell

Aug 20, 2006

I did a search for " import text" and found some promising leads, but not exactly what I was looking for. I have tried running macros and looking at the code but don't know how to pass the file names from the the D47:D147 range to VBA(see below). I saw elsewhere that Excel can be told to create a temporary batch file, and that the batch file with the command "copy text1.txt+text2.txt+text3.txt all.txt" for example could be used to merge the 3 text files into a file called all.txt. I don't however know how specify the path where copy starts, to tell the batch file to look in subdirectories or to pass the file into Excel. I've posted this question yesterday to Yahoo Answers http://tinyurl.com/omers and http://tinyurl.com/rfww9 without much luck.

Below is the macro I would like:I have text files whose names are found in the range D47:D147 although without the appended ".txt" extension. The sheets can only contain one name sometimes, but on average 8 to 10, so in the average case only cells D47:D56 would have entries.The text files are found in the say H:Textfiles directory or subdirectories.I would like Excel to find these files, concatenate them with a row between each file, and paste the results into cell K251.Finally, the text import wizard should be used with a space as a delimiter and the last 3 columns (it's sometimes only 2) of the concatenated file, not imported.

Index / Match Formula Uses Cell Content As Worksheet Ref

May 15, 2014

Attached file 140515 Matchsheet.xlsx has formula that finds costs matching two criteria.

But the formula depends on me typing in the specific Worksheet Name: So to find the cost for 'Type 1' products, I enter:

=IFERROR(INDEX('Type 1'!$E$5:$F$11,MATCH($C$4,'Type 1'!$C$5:$C$11,0),MATCH($D$4,'Type 1'!$E$4:$F$4,0)),"")

I want the formula to "see" the sheet name as whatever is in a specific cell.

E.g. Cell B4 says "Type 2". The formula will be:

=IFERROR(INDEX('[WHATEVER NAME IS IN B4]'!$E$5:$F$11,MATCH($C$4,'[WHATEVER NAME IS IN B4]'!$C$5:$C$11,0),MATCH($D$4,'[WHATEVER NAME IS IN B4]'!$E$4:$F$4,0)),"")

Passing Cell Content As Named Range In Formula

Sep 13, 2006

how to pass a cell content into a formula as a named range? For instance, I have 3 named range (Budget, Actual, Forecast) and I use the named range in vlookup formulas. But instead of using the named range in the formula directly, I want to refer to a cell where I can type in which named range I want to use. Can this be done? I am attaching a sample spreadsheet to clarify what I mean.

Command Button VBA To Copy Formula From Cell Above?

Feb 5, 2014

I have sheet1 having two formulas. Ideally I can copy and paste the formula to the entire column, However this then populates , say 3000 cells unnecessarily which slows down excel performance or increases size of the file.

I am looking for a vba ( this is used to open userform) To include copy formula from filled cell above to next empty row ( cells will be in column K & L)

So every-time userform is opened, the formula is copied to next empty row.

This works well if I know which workbook and sheet I will be getting the info from. What I would like to do is add a function that searches through a few workbooks looking for a worksheet name that matches a value in a cell in my original workbook.

ie. Workbook 1, cell A1 = "Jelly"

search through excel files for the workbook that contains the worksheet named "Jelly" and then copy a range from that worksheet back to workbook 1.

Search Multiple Criteria If Match Append Multiple Cells To One Cell?

Apr 28, 2012

I am having such a difficult time creating a macro that will reduce the 5+hours I have to spend each week manually copying & pasting all of this data. I making an IMMENSE difference in this worker bee's life!

I have a workbook with two sheets (Sheet1 & Sheet2). Sheet1 has license #'s in column A and the state that the license belongs to in column B like this:

COLUMN ACOLUMN B11111Alaska11112Alabama11113Arkansas11114Arkansas
Sheet2 has three columns. Column A has the license #'s, column B has the state that the license belongs to and Columns C shows a line-of-authority tied to that license #.

COLUMN ACOLUMN BCOLUMN
C11111AlaskaProperty11111AlaskaCasualty11112AlaskaLife11112AlaskaHealth11112
AlabamaProperty11112AlabamaCasualty11113ArkansasLife11113ArkansasHealth11114
ArkansasLife11114ArkansasHealth12345ArizonaProperty

I'm trying to write a macro that will compare the license # and state in Sheet1 to the license # and state in Sheet2. If it matches, append the contents of Column C to the corresponding row in Sheet1.

Here's the thing...Sheet2 contains the entries for all licenses in the company (so this table is HUGE). And there are multiple entries for each state license # (notice how there's two entries above for AK license # 11111 - one for the Property line and one for the Casualty line.

After my macro is run, I want Sheet1 to show all the lines-of-authority on a single line. So if I ran my macro on the above example, after it's run I would have this in Sheet1:

COLUMN ACOLUMN BCOLUMN
C11111AlaskaProperty Casualty11112AlabamaProperty Casualty11113

Search For Multiple Text Strings In A Cell - Return One Of Multiple Corresponding But Different String

Mar 11, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with 1,000 rows of data.

Each Cell in Column A has a different long text string.

I need to see which (if any) of 10 specific small text strings exist within each long text string. Depending on which small text string is found I want to return a 3 digit code. If no small text string is found I want to return "Not Found"

E.g.:
- Cell A2 contains "randomtext,randomtext,APPLE,randomntext"
- I want to see if Cell A2 contains any of the words APPLE, ORANGE, CARROT.
- I want to return "APP", "ORG", "CAR" or "Not Found"

Q: What is the most elegant way to accomplish this within a single formula that I could paste into each cell in Column B?

Formula/macro/etc that would enable me to have content of a cell changed based on the content of another cell in the same row.

Example: cell in column D says "PSA" - so I would need the cell in column H for that same row to read "Radio"

I would need an entire sheet scanned to review for these occurrences and make the appropriate changes. I also would need the formula to be inclusive enough to scan for variations in column D cell content (PSA 1, PSA 2, etc).
