Automatic Update Of Cell Text Based On Item Number (also Text)?

Mar 28, 2014

I have a column C with different text in cells (item's title). Column D - relevant description for each of the items. 100+ rows.

Now, unfortunately, often a spreadsheet with items is updated with many new items. So I get a new spreadsheet with old and new items mixed. I need, somehow, to import descriptions of the old items (Column D of the old spreadsheet) to the new spreadsheet from old spreadsheet. So I want excel to look for old items in column A of the new spreadsheet and, once found, insert a description in the column B from old spreadsheet.

See attachment : Example for forum.xlsx

Automatic Text Based On Cell Color

Aug 26, 2008

I would like to have a cell automatically change text based on a conditional formatting formula. When the cell color is red, or the formula is true, then display the word "Expired". Can a formula be devised using results from conditional formatting?

This is being used for expired CPR 2-year certifications. When the certification expires, the cell currently turns red (based on a cell formula) and I would also like the word "Expired" to replace the date.

My condition formula is: =TODAY()>A2 + 730

Automatic Date Insert

Sep 24, 2009

I have a "customer info column" column (b) and a "date column" column (a) is there a way that when i put a new customer into column B, that column A would automatically put the days date in which i put the new customer in column B. so b3 would have the new customers name and A3 would automatically have todays date (the day i input new customer) inserted.

so b4=new customer a4=todays date, tomorrow i input another new customer and then b5=new customer a4=tomorrows date and so on down the line.

there is no "right clickinsert date" or anything like that.

Jul 10, 2013

I have an excel file with many worksheets. I want to get a pop up message providing definitions of different subjects when they are entered from a drop down list in a specific range within a column to improve the users understanding of the subjects.

Worksheet 1

Macro To Insert Date In Cell When Text Is Inserted In Another Cell

Feb 20, 2008

I'm trying to write a macro similar to the one found here: here:

Rather then use a textbox, I would like the cell to display the date when text is inserted in the cell to the left.

ie. I insert text (the letter 'a') in cell E11, and the date appears in cell F11.

I would also like the macro to do this for a range of cells ie. for E11 to F21, then from G11 to H21, then from I11 to J21, all the way to column IV.

For example:

Insert Pic Into Comment For Every Cell That Has Text Containing String .jpg Or .png

May 10, 2009

I need a nudge in the right direction with how to amend the below code so that it :
1: cycles though all cells in a workbook, and sees whether the text reference of the cell contains a picture filename (i.e. searches for .png or .jpg in the cell contents)
3: if (1) is correct, it retrieves the picture from "C:/Users/jeff/Documents/Standards/" and pastes it as a cell comment background in the cell to the right (and overwrites any comment backgrounds that might already exist there)

The code below does something a bit different: it looks in a defined range, then adds a comment with a background picture retrieved based on the text in the cell to the left.

I'm sure this is a pretty basic change, but my VBA skills aren't up to it...I've only just started reading though Walkenbach's Power Programming! I'm using Excel 2007

Sub InsertComment()
Dim rngList As Range
Dim c As Range
Dim cmt As Comment
Dim strPic As String

On Error Resume Next

Set rngList = Range("A1:A5")
strPic = "C:/Users/jeff/Documents/Standards/"
On Error Resume Next
For Each c In rngList
With c.Offset(0, 1)...................

I want the macro to:

1. search A1:AZ1 to find the cell that has the text "VBA Test" in the cell. There could be other text in the cell as well - this is not an exact match - but these two words are the common text.

2. go to that cell

3. go to one cell below that

4. enter a formula (I've got it from here ....)

Insert Text In First Empty Cell In 2 Dimensional Range

Nov 20, 2013

I'm looking for a quick and easy way to insert a value in the first empty cell in a multi-column, multi-row range using VBA. I suppose I could loop through the range, but the table could grow to immense proportions and I don't want to slow everything down.

For example, the new value should be placed in cell C4. It doesn't matter whether the range is looped through the rows or columns, either will work just fine.

Insert Text From Once Cell Into A Formula In Another Cell

Sep 11, 2009

I built a formula that should work, but it's too long so I need to condense it.

I have three columns, column 1 has names, column 2 has a formula.

I have 15 sheets, each with a name that could appear in column 1.

If the cell in column 2, sheet 1 is Bob, I want it to pull H5 from sheet bob. That works as:

=IF(A5="Bob", 'Bob Data'!H4, "Work in Progress")

But if I build that formula for all the possible names, it's too long. Is there a way to make the formula autofill with the name in cell A5

So: =IF(A5="XXXX", 'XXXX'!H4, "Work in Progress")

Excel 2007 :: Macro To Insert A Text Box Auto-sized To Fit A Cell?

Nov 30, 2011

I am trying to write a Macro that will insert a Text Box that auto-fits the shape of a cell to hide its content. Once finished, the Macro will need to lock the cell and the text box so the contents of the cell are hidden. The idea is that I want to share a spreadsheet with someone but want to hide individual cells for various reason.

Sheet1A1SAMPLE DATA2sample3sample4HIDDEN5sampleExcel 2007

I tried to record a macro as a starting point but it recorded nothing. I searched around and it seems to be an issue without a solution.

I could obviously change the formatting and the contents of the cell but the idea is to preserve the contents if possible.

Automatic Auto Filtering: Filter The List And Have A Box For Users To Type In Text

Aug 25, 2006

I have a list of a couple of thousand (and more) individual items. I want to filter the list and have a box for users to type in text (there are no numbers) and the results will be seen automatically reducing in number as more text is entered. (Similar to the Windows HELP files )

eg, typing A (or a) will show all entries beginning with A (without pressing
"Enter" or similar
typing AB will show only entries beinning with AB
typing ABO will show .........I guess you will understand the idea.

I have tried various forms of Filter - Auto and advanced - but still cannot get the spreadsheet to do what I want. Unless I am not doing the Autofilter (or Advanced filter) correctly (I am still a relative beginner!) I still cannot find a way of simply adding letters to a cell or input box and the filtering takes place 'automatically' as the letters are added.

Insert Text In Front Of Text OR Number - User Defined Format

I can't seem to make user-defined format that puts a text in front of a number and/or a text.

Let's say I have A1: 13, A2: texttext A3: text7 and I want to format a lot of cells to "Ilike 13" / "Ilike texttext" / "Ilike text7"... ie add the same text in the front of the cell, no matter what the content is.

I did manage it seperately, with "texttext" @ for text and "texttext" # for numbers, but what's the general one?

VBA To Read Text Formula And Related Constants And Insert As Formula Into Cell

Jul 30, 2014

I have a situation where I have to curve fit data, this can lead to different formulas being used with varying constants.

Is it possible to pickup a TEXT based formula and related constants from other cells, and then place this into another cell as a functioning formula. For Example

Cell A1 contains the formula as a text string whether it be y=a+bx+cx^2, or y=a+b/x, etc
Cells A2:A6 contain the individual constants, a, b, c, etc

I would then want the VBA to read the text based formula and put it into an output cell as a functioning excel formulae.g

In cell B10: =a+b*A10+c*A10^2

I understand picking the constants up and putting the formula should not be too much of an issue, however trying to insert the variable form of the curve fit is the part that I am struggling with, and am unsure if possible.

Excel 2007 :: Time Difference Calculations And Automatic Insertion Of Text In Blank Column

Jan 4, 2014

Please find attached a daily copy of a spreadsheet that is used to monitor train running times.

The columns on the left - "Serv No, Serv Start Date,Train No:, Scheduled Arrival, Scheduled Depart" are provided to us automatically and the underlying cell formatting/formula cannot be changed. This information is cut directly from a daily report sent to us the previous day. The cell formatting for the start date is custom - dd-mm-yyyy hh:mm.

The sheet is usually locked out with user access only to the left hand side to cut and paste train times in and the input columns on the right hand side. User has no requirement to adjust any details in the left had column apart from to add additional trains at the bottom is need be. I have left the loaded sheet blank and complete with all underlying cell formatting, conditional formatting and formulas intact for you to play with.

Both sheets essentially do the same thing so whatever formula changes are made to the empty sheet can be adapted for the loaded sheet.

For simplicity, I will focus on the empty sheet. What I am mucking around with is having the user input the train arrival time in the "Actual Arrival" column - (column F)

What I am looking at then making occur is the spreadsheet automatically filling the adjacent columns with the appropriate text and calculations.

To do this excel needs to compare column the number (cell input is text formatted) as a number with the arrival time in column G. It then needs to calculate if the train is Early (16 minutes or more before scheduled arrival), on time (+/- 15 minutes either side of scheduled arrival) or late (16 minutes or more after scheduled). It then needs to automatically place the letter "E", "O" or "L" in column K and the time differential in column L.

My problem is two fold.

Firstly, I cannot seem to make the spreadsheet automatically enter a letter into column K depending on the above conditions.

Secondly, I have had limited success in having the spreadsheet compare column J with column F and working out the differential. However, this only works if the time remains linear. IE only if the train runs on time or late. It gives an incorrect time differential if the train is early. I will attach this spreadsheet tomorrow as an add on to this post.

Automatic Time Stamp Cell Based On Adjacent Cell

Oct 19, 2007

I am looking to add a function to a current spreadsheet that writes the current date to a cell when another is updated. The sheets function is to have a user record when a particular action has been completed and then remind them after a given amount of time. The user is faced with an option to input a "1" to essentially "start the timer" and then the date that is automatically input by the code will be used to compare with the current date. I have tried the following on the Workbook_SheetChange sub

If ActiveCell.Column = 9 And ActiveCell.Value <> 1 Then
ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 2).Value = Date
End If

But cannot figure out how to eliminate user error. Let me explain. If a user enters a value (will only ever be a 1 to indicate "yes") into column 9 then the date appears in the correct place (two cells to the left) If however a user deletes a value then the date will update one cell too high!? I also thought of using a cell based if statement (if j7 = 1 then today() else "" but this only updates with todays value each time you open where I want the date to stay as the day the cell was updated. The date is going to be used as a way of working out when to change the original value of the cell in column 9 to "".

Automatic Cell Recognition

Sep 4, 2009

In the Yellow Cells, I am looking for a formula or Macro that will automatically recognise and give the correct Premises number. As an example, in the first block of Yellow cells, it should be MOR001&2; The second block should be MOR003 and so on...

One could copy and paste the Premises number for each premises, but with 100 entries or more, it becomes a tedious and time consuming task. An autonomous function to recognise the correct premises number would be much easier

In the end, this is to be used when drawing up a PIVOT so that one may easily pick up a premises number or numbers and their related charges

When I input an ID number in Cell A1 and if it is found in the above table, it should bring all the names corresponding to that ID in a cell comment.

The ID Number is repeated in the above table because the names in Colum F are the dependants name for that particular ID.
