Alert Me Upon Entering Duplicate Number

Dec 1, 2009

Is there a way to have Excel alert me (via cell color change preferably, but another method would be fine also) upon entering a number that has already been entered on that worksheet?

The problem I have:

I have 10 columns in a worksheet that I keep track of serial numbers in for work... Sometimes someone enters the wrong serial number or doesn't update a serial number so we will have the same serial number in two different places and another agency will call us to correct our mistake, making us look inept.

I figure the best way to alert people of this input error would be to change the fill color of both, or the active, cell(s) so they could immediately begin looking into the problem.

Audio Alert: Alert For When Range ("C4").select Is >=1000 Alert Ring

Dec 7, 2008

I just discovered VBA coding today and was wondering if I could use it as an audio alert. I found a couple examples online but donít understand the coding language of excel. I have a feed link from my trading platform to excel that feeds in live data. What I would like to do is have an alert for when Range ("C4").select is >=1000 Alert Ring.wav and when Range ("C4").select is <=-1000 Alert Chimes.wav.

Entering Duplicate Formulas From Different Worksheet

Jul 21, 2009

Basically I have a template from two different worksheets and I am making one sheet the "master sheet" and the other sheet is filled in automatically from the master sheet. I understand how to get this basic function to work so here is my real problem...

I would like my sheet to look like this repeated 2000 times...

'sheet1'A16
'sheet1'A16
'sheet1'A17
'sheet1'A17
etc.

Every time I try to drag the formulas down to go 2000 rows it starts doing this...

'sheet1'A16
'sheet1'A17
'sheet1'A18
'sheet1'A19
etc.

How do I get this formula to repeat like I have shown in my desired example?

Macros Crahes - Alert Alert - Shut Down All Systems

Mar 27, 2007

Each month I get a report that I process using a macro. The problem is that each month the name of the file changes and is different. When I run the macro and it crashes I have to de-bug by going through the code to change all references to the file name from the the previos run and change to the latest file name and then re-run the macro. There must be a better way.

I would like to learn the code that sees the open book and then refers to it for the run.

What is the best way to do this?

Alert When Entered A Number Or Word

Jan 21, 2006

Is there a function in excel that alerts you if you have entered a number
(or word!) more than an agreed amount of times??
e.g. If you have agreed not to input the number 7 more than 3 times in a
selected range, but then do so, will excel inform you??

Entering Specific Number To Effect Number Section On Another Page

Jan 8, 2014

I am working on a concrete pour summary, I would like to have the specific codes on each tab be affected from one summary page. So when I enter a certain number on sheet 1 , it will affect that same number section that is on a different sheet. It will be adding a certain amount to that code section every time its entered. What functions need to be used to make this work..?

Display Alert When A Number In Column Has Already Been Entered

Jun 17, 2008

My colleague in accounts has a sheet that lists all the invoices and values and other 'accounts department things' that I know little about.

Anyway, she has to manually input all the invoices she receives onto this excel document but sometime receives duplicate invoices (& inputs them twice be accident).

Is it possible for someone with macro skills to create a macro to run in a worksheet so that if she enters a number in a given column more than once an alert box appears to tell her. I've summarised the 'rules' below*

*Can is be written so that I can edit which column the alert is based on?

[In (for example) column F is a list of invoice numbers - all unique]

If user types a number in column F that matches a number that already exists, show alert box "THERE APPEARS TO BE A DUPLICATE ENTRY IN COLUMN F"

====

Any further clarification, let me know i'll try to post a blank sheet if my boss lets me.

Delete Row If There Is Duplicate Number In Same Column

Mar 14, 2014

I understand filtering will accomplish this but a macro would save time.

My data is in Column "B" that contains ID#. If there is a duplicate ID# in column B, delete the row, but keep one. In addition, I do not want to delete blank cells in Column "B" and non number data.

Before:
XXXXX
35069
35070

35855
35855
XXXXX

35865
35867

After:
XXXXX
35069
35070

35855

35865

Keep ONLY Duplicate Matter Number Rows

Oct 15, 2008

Is there a way to delete any rows that don't have a second occurrence of any cell in column a? I have unique numbers ONLY in column A. I want to tell Excel to.

a) Look at all the cells in column A ONLY (about 6,000 of them).
b) Look for any cells column a that have a duplicate entry in another cell.
c) Delete all rows that don't have a duplicate cell in column a.

This would be the entire row that I would like deleted. So every row should now only have the header info followed by 2 identical cells in column A. NOTE THAT THE OTHER COLUMNS WILL HAVE DIFFERENT INFO IN THEM, WHICH I WANT TO KEEP. I ONLY WANT THE CELL IN COLUMN A TO MATCH.....

this two column compare for duplicates and I manage to highlight (actually not bold) the number that is duplicate but I dont want to highlight the 2nd, 3rd & so on duplicate number in c3 (highlight 1 only from the 3 numbers most of the times got 2 only) . (row start from c3 to c2000 and d3 is up to d2000 also). I already use CF for highlighting the duplicate in C3 which my formula in CF is

=IF(ISERROR(MATCH(c3:c3,$c$3:$c$780,0)),"",c3:c3) I just try to do this formula and it works, but I dont know how to command not to highlight the 2nd, 3rd & so on duplicate number in C3 (C3 only can have duplicate number within the column; D3 doesn't have any repeat number in the D column.

I need to do the same formula command for other 2 partner columns (compare for duplicates this two columns & the 1st column if have to many duplicates highlight the first number that have more than 1 duplicates only) cells need to do again is for E3 & F3; G3&H3; until AU3&AV3..

is it possible to count how many highlighted cell (not bold) there is in a column (I mean total highlighted cell) and put the answer in cell C1, E1, G1, I1 ... AS1 , AU1. Tq again..

Counting Total Number Duplicate Cells

May 21, 2013

I have a Workbook with multiple sheets with Data in them. I would like to Count the number of duplicate values between the sheets.

For example.

Sheet one has a list of case references Person A is dealing with.

Sheet two has a another list of case references Person B is dealing with however the also have a list of case reference's they are monitoring as part of a project.

Sheet 3 has got the total number of case references each Person is dealing with, it also contain the total number of cases Person A&B together are dealing with. however i need to find the total number of cases Person B is monitoring that Person A also has so that the total number of cases is the true number of total cases with no duplicates involved.

(References begin with VB then have a string of numbers afterwards and I would like to know the total number of cases the Person B is monitoring as well so these need ot be calculated).

Duplicate Rows Based On Number In Text

Aug 14, 2007

I have a problem of having to repeatedly copy and paste a series of data based on the number of occurrences in each row of data series. For instance:

[Road Name] [Building Name] [No. of occurrence]
(1) [Scotts Rd] [Tangs Building] [38]
(2) [Orchard Rd] [ABC Building] [3]
(3) [French Rd] [DB Bank] [1]

I will need to duplicate (1) 38 times with the location name and building name. Similarly, I need to duplicate (2) 3 times. How can I simplify it programmatically?

Count Highest Number Of Duplicate Text Entries In Range

Nov 2, 2011

I have a column that is filled with different names. Some names appear more than once. There is one name in fact that appears four times.

I am looking for a formula, or VBA if that's necessary, that will look through the range Y2:Y50, and return a value of 4, because the person that has the most duplicates, her name appears 4 times.

If everyone's name appeared only once, except for a person whose name was in that range twice, then the formula would return a 2.
