VBA that autogenerates a unique number when a cell in excel is filled?
I don't want to create a function to use within a cell, I need the Sub to run through a user form. I have a Userform to create a new account, and need to add a 6 digit unique identifier after a predetermined prefix ("T" for toddler, "Y" for youth, and "A" for adult). The constraints are that it cannot be duplicated (this is for multiple children registered within the company). I have tried using the GUID but having difficulty stripping characters and adding the prefix (this was my fix inclination).View 8 Replies View Related
I'm wanting some sort of formula to generate a reference number that relates to numbers i put in a cell. i want the end result to look something like this:
As you can see id like it to generate a reference number to the number that i input, and also when i input that number twice or three times it picks that up on the reference number also.
I'm trying to set up a system of sorts to track "services"
At the top of my 'new service" page, I need a button, which I then need to have a macro run on.
Sheet 1 is basically where I'd be entering the info, and sheet 2 where it would be stored. The button at the top is called Generate New "service' Number. This then needs to generate a new number on sheet 2 in A2 (then once 2 is populated, generate new in 3, then 4, then 5 etc...
I have a macro on Save Service Button at the bottom, which transposes the data into what would be used as a database to store all the services. That Macro then also needs to only transpose and paste data into the row corresponding with the "service number".
I facing a problem to generate request id number. Actually i need to generate id like example "RQ1013-01" where "RQ" is constant word, "1013" is month and year while "-01"is generated number. and every month i want the id number start from -00 back. thus in a month there is only 99 request is available.View 6 Replies View Related
How do I create a 6 digit unique random number for use as an ID in column A. Once created the rows with preexisting 6 digit unique random ID numbers must not change every time new rows are added.View 9 Replies View Related
I have an excel sheet that has multiple rows for one PO number. I've created a row at the top to calculate all of the unique PO numbers in the sheet. However, I want to create another column that will give each unique PO number it's own ID number starting at 1. For instance:
Column B (PO Number)
4 - Counts unique values in B
Then in Column C I'd want
1 (unique number for 219)
1 (unique number for 219)
1 (unique number for 219)
2 (unique number for 220)
2 (unique number for 220)
3 (unique number for 221)
4 (unique number for 222)
4 (unique number for 222)
on generating a unique ID for each row in a spreadsheet. My current manually entered ID numbers are alpha numeric, so I want to use a formula or macro to follow the same format.
For example the IDs may be ABC001, ABC002, AAA001, AAA002, AAA003. So user enters info in a form built in excel, and I run a macro which takes the data entered into that form and populates another spreadsheet and I assign an ID number.
The ID number should look for the next number in the sequence, based upon the first three characters.
I have a list of e-mail addresses stored in an Excel file (column A). I need to generate some passwords basing on these e-mail addresses which would then be automatically stored in the same row as the passwords, only this time in column B. The passwords could be numbers based on some text to number conversion (which I could additionally add some mathematical operation to, to make the password harder to crack). The passwods would then be distributed among the owners of these e-mail addresses.View 5 Replies View Related

I have 2 columns of data in one sheet that list dates (say Master Dates) and transactions (say Master Transactions).
In another sheet i would like a formula that can choose the correct transactions that fall between certain dates (call Date Beginning and Date End) and generate a list.
i have tried this array:
If((Master Dates>=Date Beginning)*(Master Dates<Date End),Master Transactions,"")
Problem with this is when used in different columns for different date ranges there are large gaps in the generated list...
I'm trying to use Advanced Filter to generate all the unique values within a list, only at times I want to Autofilter the data, then use the advanced filter to determine all the values of the slimmed list. For some reason, this works fine on column A, only returning the values that begin with a 1 when the column is filtered for all values beginning with 1. However, when I run the advanced filter on column 2 with column 1 filtered to all beginning with 1, all values all returned regardless of whether column 1 criteria is met. Either way, after the advanced filter, the autofilter has been removed.View 7 Replies View Related
Is there a way to auto generate passwords? I would like the result to start off with the word "cook" and end in numbers. Is this possible?
I have a spreadsheet that has thousands of rows, but they only want every 200th row to be populated with said data values.
Is there a way that I can auto-generate those values separately?
In the one Attached, I don't have thousands of rows.
I have an event that is one week long (7 days), with three functions happening each day (7 days - 3 columns per day).
There are 11 groups with various number of possible attendees listed in rows. Attendees of a given function is indicated by entry of a 1 or 2 (attending partner), Blank = not attending.
I would like to show a list of the attendees for a given function by clicking or moving my mouse pointer on the event function column header.
The list would need to be automatically updated when the attendees status changes (entry or deletion of 1 or 2)
In an earlier life I was tasked with finding a "random" method of selecting two numbers from a "1 to 20" range so that the generated numbers can be applied to an set of people who will be partnered in a golf game draw.
It is only one draw per year so I don't care if the players have previously played together in past years.
easily be modified by a "passable knowledge level" person to be able to select a mystery "9" out of 18 holes that count for scores that particular round.
(btw: this is an issue only for the 20 guys who go away once a year to play golf, the world will not collapse if I have to draw numbers out of a hat, just looking for a slightly more elegant solution and I already have a few scoring macros so my first guess (but not only possibility) is VBA)
if it was possible to have Excel sort and then Auto generate a work sheet.
Once a week at work I get a report that is split up via our 3 digit office codes.
Once a week I manually sort the info and split the original sheet into separate sheets based on the office code and mail it to them.
Its is simple and repetitive but takes me half a day to do due to the size.
I have a user form into which data can be entered and is populated on the next sheet. The order ID is unique, is there way I can make the Order ID auto generated each time a record is entered instead of manually keying the number?View 4 Replies View Related
Possible to auto count and auto sum based on Unique ID.
Download link to the file in question [URL] ..........
So for Example ID 79125 should get a sum 537.39 and count should be 12, also in any given week like 50 , 51 , 52 , week 1 etc.., duplicate entries must be all counted as 1

after spending hours searching the forum, I begin to seriously doubt my ability to even formulate a suitable search question. My problem SHOULD be a known one, but I am unable to find any clues. Here we go:
I have made a pretty stright-forward forecasting model. It is used to calculate economics of a coal fuelled power plant (even though that shouldn't matter). The outcome is, among other things, a single number for Profit / MWh in Euros. There are several input data, such as fuel price, price for CO2 emission rights, operational expenditure, capex, etc.
My idea, then, is to lock all in-data parameters except ONE, then let this variable vary incrementally and then produce a new small table with a) the variable data (example: price for CO2 rights ranging from 10 to 50 Euro in 2 euro steps), and b) the resulting net profit in each case. Ideally, I wish to be able to chose which indata to lock and which to vary, i.e. solution need to have certain flexibility.
NB: The calculations are not that simple, i.e. I cannot use a simple formula - I need to use the exising output cell(s) to feed data.
How do I do this?
The outcome should be basically two rows with a suitable number of columns (or the other way around, two columns in X number of rows). The table will then be used to produce illustrative graphs.
I guess I could hard code a table by simply enter data, but heck, that's not the way to use Excel!
Is it possible to have a formula that generate a Unique list (List 1 and List 2) of Missing values in List 2 by comparing two lists? Something like this

Is there a function that allows you to read column A for an ID (these may or may not include letters/numbers/"?", are non-sequential and are of variable lengths) and, if it is the first time that it has seen an ID column B will read "sample_1_arm_1", if its the second time it has seen an id it will read "sample_2_arm_1", etc? An example of what I am trying to do on a much larger scale:
I've read a lot of tutorials on how to use pivot tables, but found them either too basic, or too advanced, and never finding any example of what I am looking to do.
I have a database, column A holds names, and column B their phone numbers. I'd like to generate a list of unique names and their associated telephone numbers. I figure I can use a pivot table to do this.
But I do not quite understand how to format the pivot table to put the name in one column and the phone number in the next. I will use this pivot table as a vlookup range. I assume I can do this.

I have been given the following code and it works great. I now need to adapt it to the following scenario: In the attached sheet, the user has to select either, "Suburban" or "Squad" in row 5. If the user selects, "Suburban" I need this script to compare the values they enter in a given row to the value in column "B".
If the user selects, "Squad" I need this script to compare the values they enter in a given row to the value in column "C".
Look at row 48, for example. If the user enters, "Suburban" in cell D5 then the value they enter in cell D48 should equal "1". If it does not equal "1" then it should proceed with the adding of a comment. Conversely, if the user enters, "Squad" in cell D5 then the value the enter in cell D48 should equal "2". If it does not equal "2" then it should proceed with the adding of a comment.
here it is..

I have build a form in Excel. I would like to make one field (ID) to automatically generate the next number.View 9 Replies View Related
is if there is a way to generate random numbers between 0001 and 9999. I always need to always have 4 digits. The first couple of numbers can be 0 so that I can maximize the number of variations.
i have worked in access using vba procedures. i can easily create a form in access that generates a random integer number between 0 and 20 and the user will guess the number between 1 to 20 if the random number is 16 and the user enters 14 the program will display a msg box saying too low or too high. here is the code .
Private Const MAX = 20
Private Const MIN = 1
Private iKey As Integer
Private lTries As Long
Private Function Random() As Integer
Random = CInt(Int((MAX - MIN + 1) * Rnd() + MIN))
Private Sub cmdGuess_Click()
Dim lGuess As Long
now i have to do the same thing in excel create a program that will ask the user to enter numbers between 0 to 20 and see if the random number and user guess is same or not. but i have never worked in excel using vba procedures how can i achieve the same thing in excel using a vba procedures.
I want to get number (going from 1 to 15 (for example)) when i click on commandbutton (on userform without textboxes, combos , etc, ..... except only one commandbutton)!
In other words, when i click on commandbutton, i want to get (on msgbox) number 1, then when i click again on commandbutton, i want to get number 2, then when i click on it third time, i want to get number three on msgbox window, and so on until i close userform!
In column A on sheet1 I have a list of unique numbers . On sheet2 I have a list of unique numbers that are available. I am currently using this formula,
to look at sheet2 and tell me what number is next after I copy it to sheet1. My problem is how do I automatically generate the next number onto sheet1(by double clicking) and have that number removed from sheet2?
I'm looking for something one step deeper than a countif. I need something that will tell me what iteration number it actually is within the countif, in relation to date, as shown.
Any formula that could be used to do something like this?
each time a button is clicked I want a new ref number to be produced and displayed on my userform.
I can't however create the code to generate this ref number.
In column A of my 'sweeplog' worksheet is where I want the ref number to be placed. This ref number is simply made up of today's date - in format ddmmyy eg 240408 for today 24th April 2008 then add the number '1' if its a new date or the next number in coulumn A if not.
for example In column A I have these 3 ref numbers
A2 = 2404081 (24th April 2008 plus 1 as this is the first ref used today)
A3 = 2404082 (as above but with 2 added)
A4 = 2404083 (as above but with 3 added)
now tomorrow the next ref number that would be shown in column A (after the user clicks the button) would be as follows.....
A5 = 2505081 (25th April 2008 plus 1 as this is first ref used on 25th)
I am able to get this unique ref number to show in my userform but can't figure out how to produce the code to generate it
