Adding Column With Description Based On Preset Codes

First it should Insert a Column to the left of A. Then it should go to column B and search for the number 99 and delete all rows after it. In column C I want it to do the following formula =vlookup(b2,descriptions!$b$2:$c$250,2,false) and have it copied all the way down to the end of data.

Next I need labels added to the tops of the rows
Next I need the description columns in C to be copied to column I
Finally, beginning at J2, I would like the formula (e2 * g2)/100 entered to the end of data. Attached is sample data.

If Statement Limit Workarounds: Convert Various Codes From One Column Of Spreadsheet Into Different Codes In Another Column
I'm trying to convert various codes from one column of an excel spreadsheet into different codes in another column. I was able to accomplish this with "If" statements, however I'm only able to string together seven of these statements in one command. Is there a better way to add formulas for more than seven conversions? Below is a copy of what I've done so far with the seven converts:


I want to add about 15 more codes to convert within this formula but it's maxed out in the format I'm using.

Adding In Extra Spaces For Post Codes
I have a table of postcodes and I need to import them into a bespoke application. The aaplication requires them to have extra spaces depending on the postcode i.e.

BS35 2JW - this is fine because it has the maximum amount of characters 8

BS1 2JW - I need to add 1 space

B1 2JW - I need to add 2 spaces

Description Column In Pivot Table
I often use pivot tables to summarize accounting data. I wish to summarize the data by account number, but also wish to display the account description next to each account number. Both the account number and account description are separate columns in my original table of data.

I've always managed to do this by the use of lookup formulas after the formation of the pivot table in a column outside the pivot table, but it would be preferable to have those descriptions as part of the table.

If I designate both the account number and account description as row labels, they land on two different lines.

Add Numbers Based On Duplicate Codes Only
I got some functions from some of you to spot duplicate bar codes

the first function was this =IF(ISERROR(MATCH(D5;$D6:D$65536;0));"";D5)
the second next to it this =COUNTIF($D:$D;$D5)
and the third: =IF(COUNTIF(D:D;D5)>1;"DUPLICATE";"")

well fine but now I dlike to add the numbers of the 2 cells of those duplicate codes. In some cases I have more than 2 identical bar codes.

Zip Codes To Be Pushed To The Next Column
City, state 29785
city, state 29767
city, state 29719

I need the zip codes to be pushed to the next column, to column 'D' to be exact. I already tried using the "text to columns" function. I selected "delimited" file type and used "2". it pushed the data to the next column everytime there was a 2. The problem is, there are 2's in the middle of the zip code sometimes. Also, it gets rid of all the 2's. Also, I can't use the "fixed width" option because there are some city/states that have more letters in them obviously, so the column is not a perfect width.

Display Data Based On Key Codes Entered?
I am trying to do in the title so here it goes. I want a user to be able (on form 1) to enter a list of codes that refer to specific requirements (e.g. code PB114 may mean the user needs to perform a pressure test) and then excel will automatically display the requirement somewhere below. It is going to be somewhat of a database. In otherwords lets say in cell A1 you type in a code, e.g. PB114. In a range of merged cells or somewhere below that cell I want the information "Perform a pressure test" to appear.

Find Numeric Codes In A Column And Replace In Vba
I am using the following vba code to find numeric codes in a column and replace them with the same code along with descriptive text:

Selection.Replace What:="11", Replacement:="11 - GSA"
Selection.Replace What:="10", Replacement:="10 - NYS OGS"
Selection.Replace What:="1", Replacement:=" 1 - Dist Sale"
Selection.Replace What:="2", Replacement:=" 2 - Direct Sale"
Selection.Replace What:="3", Replacement:=" 3 - No Sale: Warranty Exchange"
The problem as you might already see is that when the replacement of "1" happens, Excel will replace the 1 in the 10 and 11. Of course I want to only replace the number 1. Is there a better way to code this operation?

To Sum Cells Until Preset Value Is Reached
I have a spreadsheet with time values incremented in column A.

In column K, there are numerical values that correspond to the time in column A.

Elsewhere, a specific time is chosen from which to begin the summing of the values in column K.

I need to be able to sum the values in column K until preset values are reached. Then I need to know at which corresponding time value the summing loop stops.

For example, a time of 11:00 AM is chosen as the "start time". I want to sum the values in column K until they are >= 2.000.

At that point, I need to know what the cell value was in colum A that is in the same row as the last cell value in column K.

I can't seem to do it with simple Excel functions without falling into a self referencing loop. So what I need is for a VBA loop to lookup the appropriate values in column K, sum the values, check the total, and continue the loop until the preset total is reached. Then look up the value in column A in the last row of summed values, and return that value.

Adding Column Minus Rows That Have Data In Another Column
I want a cell on one spreadsheet (SP-A) to add up a column (M) in another spreadsheet (SP-B) rows 11 through 10000.

Here's the thing, I want that cell to actually display not the sum that it gets but that sum minus all numbers (in M column again) which column E is filled out with any data for their given row...

i'm not even sure if this makes sense lol... let me use example

on SP-B there's a column M.
in row 11, value = 3
in row 12, value = 5, in this same row column E is filled with whatever
in row 13, value = 2, in this same row column E is filled with whatever
in row 14, value = 6

in my SP-A I need the cell to display 9, since rows 12 and 13 have values in E and I don't want to add those to the sum.

Adding Ever Extending Data Based On Conditions

The data is imported into excel from a database and therefore is constantly growing.

What I want to do it a very basic summary page so that I can group those that are and those that aren't avoidable for each service.

Because the data is ever expanding I would like this on a separate sheet from the actual data.

Adding Worksheets Based On Cell Criteria
I would like one column (column A) to be an "indentifier" column. Column B is the customer name, column C is the customer city and state, column D is the customer phone number, and column E is the customer email.

By calling column A an "identifier" column, what I mean is that I would like to be able to go down the list and put an "x" next to each customer I would like to include in that particular workbook. I would then like to be able to run a macro which would take each of the customers with an "x" in the column A, create a copy of the template comfirmation call sheet, and fill in the identifying information from columns B through E into the copied template. Each worksheet would also need to be renamed the same as the customer name. It would need to perform this same procedure for each row that has an "x," making sure that all worksheets (confirmation call sheets) are grouped into one new workbook.

Sheet 1 is called "main"
Sheet 1 contains 5 columns
A = Blank
B = Customer Name
C = Customer City and State
D = Customer Phone
E = Customer email

Sheet 2 is called "template"

"x"'s are placed into "main" sheet, column A to identify which customer will be affected by macro...................

Adding Two Rows Together If They Have The Same Value In Column A
I've got an excel sheet which has names in column A followed by 5 numerical values in columns B-F. I'd like to get a macro that will compare the values in Column A and if they match, add the B values, the C values, the D values, the E values, and the F values and delete one row - effectively combining the row. What's the best way to go about this? Also the sheet is already in ascending alphabetical order by Column A, so the rows that need adding will be next to each other. So I guess compare each A value with the one below it and if they match add the rows, but how?

Adding Data By Row Based On Typing In Cell Contained In Row
I've built (but not completed) a spreadsheet used to organize multiple Bill of Material lists. This list is a row-by row list of products with information relating to a specific part number including: Mfg, Part#, Qty Used, Cost Ea, Vendor, among many more.

Here's what I'm trying to accomplish first. As this list grows, my intension is the be able to recall a row of data (or control what columns of the row are recalled) from this list and be able to easily add them to the list. I would like to be able to do this by typing in data in one cell in the row (like the Part#), and then have a macro or VB code that will automatically fill in a defined number of columns with the descriptive data like: Mfg, Cost Ea, Vendor, etc.

Currently, the data for the rows (if it already exists) would reside higher up in the list on the same worksheet but could also potentially be on another tab in the workbook.

Adding Cells Based On Shade / Text Colour
I have a spreadsheet where I am adding up figures in columns.

I need to differentiate between 4 different "types" of cells to sum.
Cells with figures in them are either green, red or have no fill; and some cells contain no figures at all.

At the bottom of the column, I need to total up all the figures in red cells, as well as all the figures in green cells.

The shading of these cells is not permanent - colours are changed as work progresses, so I need the totals to keep up with this.

If it cannot be done based on cell fill colour, is there any other way to do it, other than the usual long-winded way of @sum(..... etc

i) Find Last Number In Row & Return Heading
... also an additional VB solution

ii) Find Last Number In Row & Return Heading

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