and so on..

How can I create a funtion to B1 which would work so that if there is the text "Chair2" in cell A1 it would automatically give a value 200 to B1?

Automatically Filling In Data?

Jul 9, 2014

I'm simply inputting zeroes and ones down Column A. Basically, I either put a "0" or a "1" in A1, then A2, then A3, etc. However, I want to create a Macro that allows me to simply type in a string of 1's and 0's and it automatically takes each 1 and 0 and fills it in down the column. This website has the basic idea (Automatically Moving from Cell to Cell when Entering Data (Microsoft Excel)) but I need only one number per cell and for it to move down the column, not across the row. Here's what I have so far:

Dim str As String
Dim x As Integer
Dim y As Integer
str = InputBox("Enter string")
y = 0
For x = 1 To Len(str) Step 4
ActiveCell.Offset(y, 0) = "'" & Mid(str, x, 4)
y = y + 1
End Sub

*I can't get it to only break down into one number per cell down Column A. I think the Mid function or something needs to change.

Automatically Filling Like Data

Jun 21, 2009

Here's the outline of my problem...I'm building a directory of hedge fund contacts and need help in cleaning data and automating the entry of fields that will remain the same. I have one workbook with 2 pages... One is for the Companies and the other is for the contacts that work at those companies.

ex. Company #551 is 1794 Management - on this page we have fields for address, floor, city, state, zip, phone, fax and website.

on worksheet 2 is where the contacts are kept... the identifier is #551... on the contacts page all contacts under a specific company number will correspond to that company.

Here's where it gets tricky.... for the contacts the addresses are all formatted differently - first I'd like to sort by management co and address and have excel copy the first listed address format and copy this to the other contacts for that company.... when the formula reaches the next contact with company #552 it will look for the new first address and use this one for all that companies contacts.

after the formula finishes the fomating I'd like the sheet to become intuitive( dont know if this can be done but what I'm looking for is say when I add a new row and enter #551 as a company and enter the new first name, last name, and job title - if the excel sheet noticing that all contacts under that format have the same address, phone, fax, company name etc...

Automatically Filling Cells If A:C Match A:C

Jan 25, 2007

I'm looking for a formula that when copied down in row D would automatically fill in what is in colum D above if columns A:C match.


If A25:C25=A1:C24 (for example A25:C25 = A8:C8) then D25 will automatically fill in the content of D8. Then next it would be A26:C26 match A1:A25 and so on.....

Automatically Filling In Data From Another Place

Jul 12, 2006

I have previously used an Excel file - created by someone else - which had pre-entered data. It was set up in such a way that if I typed a person's ID number into a cell, their name popped into the following cell. I know that the names and IDs were pre-entered somewhere else - in another sheet? In a file linked some other way?

What is this called? How do I do it? I want to end up with a file where I can type a department code into one column and have the department NAME pop up in the following column. I am mostly doing this as a time- saving measure when completing long lists of supplies being distributed to different departments (long story.) If anyone can even tell me what this is called, so I can look it up correctly, that would be... sublime.

Automatically Filling In Cells Based On Information From Another Sheet

Apr 1, 2013

I want to make things easier for myself when filling in my worksheets by having certain cells autofill based on a product number.

So I have my main worksheet and I have my product information sheet. When I type in the product number in cell 13C, I want it to auto fill cell 13B with the product name which is located in collumn A on the product info sheet, but dependent upon that product number. Collumn B in my product info sheet has all of the product numbers. From there I would need 13G on my main worksheet to fill in with Collumn D from the product sheet, but again dependent upon that product number.

There are more that need to fill yet, but I can figure out what to do once I have a starting point with the above I believe.

Here is what I am trying to do with no luck so far.

If I type RS23U1R109000 in a cell A1, I want B1 to read the 5th letter or

I need cell B1 to read that letter and populate B1 with E86, E87, E84 or

Filling In Cell With Zeros If Cell Don't Contain Number Up To 6 Digits

Jan 2, 2012

I have a sheet with column A. This column A contains numbers from 1 number to 6 numbers.

So, one cell can have a '1' or a '999999' or any combination between them. Now this is the problem.

I want a formula that will fill those cells that don't contain a number up to 6 digits. So if a cell contains '254' I will like this formula to fill the cell like this: 000254.

This should happen with any number that don't have a number with six digits.

78 should be 000078, 78652 should be 078652 and so on.

Filling In Blank Cells With Value From Another Cell

Apr 9, 2009

What I would like to do is to take the name values in column B and fill that into the region of blank cells below. I know that a special cells function could probably do this paired with a looping structure. I'm new to VBA and am trying to learn it so that I can use it comfortably.

Filling Series - By Cell Reference

Sep 16, 2006

I have two obscure Files and I want certain information from each file.

I started by importing the data on seperate worksheets.

and I wanted to make a table basically summerizing the info on a third worksheet

On a third Worksheet i wanted to reference from those files in a table as i mentioned. So i started referencing the cells that contain the data for the first line and second line and i wanted to fill the series so I wouldn't have to type the info into Excel (like =C8)

uhm to summerize the following::

the two files are a players file (which has there specific team and player name) and a stats file (which has there corresponding stats). So i have the following

Year Team League GP G A Pts PIM +/-
2011-12 Swift Current Broncos WHL 82 5 22 27 128 10

the cell references are

for the stats worksheet

C8, D8, E8, J9, I9 (GP,G,A,PIM,+/-) Pts is just an add

and the next line would be 25 plus the cell references (so like C33)

i would like to fill it all the way down the page for about 1000 players

but it didn't work for me - the next line was C12, C27 etc...

Filling Down A Column Without Dragging Over Every Cell?

Nov 8, 2003

I have a spreadsheet that will eventually consist of tens of thousands of rows. Several columns contain formula's. Rather than having to "highlight" a cell and then "drag" all the way down the column over thousands of rows before finally using the "fill down" function I am needing a method to short cut this process?

Is there a function that allows you to, say, nominate a range of cells that you can fill down over? For example, starting from the last row with data entered into it down to say row 12500 i.e. D22:D12500.

VBA - SUMIFS Formula Not Updating Cell When Filling Down?

Jul 27, 2012

I have the below formula working correctly. However the issue is when it pastes and fills down values its using H1 reference in the formula even when it goes to the next column. So basically when it goes to cell I2 it should update the sumifs formula to lookup I1 instead of H1 and so on and so forth for all columns till the loop stops.

Dim frmla As String
frmla = "=SUMIFS($C:$C,$A:$A,H$1,$B:$B,$G2)"
Do Until ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0) = ""
ActiveCell = frmla
ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).End(xlDown).Offset(0, 1).Activate
Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.End(xlUp)).Select
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Activate

List - Filling In Each Blank Cells With Value Contained In First Non-blank Cell Above It

Feb 27, 2013

I have a list that looks something like this:

Column B

Row 4 Item 1
Row 5 Item 2
Row 6
Row 7
Row 8 Item 3
Row 9
Row 10 Item 4
Row 11
Row 12
Row 13
Row 14 Item 5

The range of cells in column B containing the items has a name "ColStreams"

I need to go through the list, filling in each blank cells with the value contained in the first non-blank cell above it - so, in this case, rows 6 and 7 would contain "Item 2", row 9 would contain "Item 3", rows 11-13 would contain "Item 4" and so on.

Automatically Update A Protected Cell Based On Contents Of An Unprotected Cell

Apr 30, 2009

I am trying to find some VBA that will allow protected cells to be updated when a user enters or selects data in other cells.

For example:

Cell 'A1' starts out blank.
Cell 'B1' has a drop down to select specific items.
Cell 'C1' is the date of the order and is a locked cell.
Cell 'D1' is the date of completion and is a locked cell.
The worksheet is protected to prevent direct changes to cells C1 and D1.

If a user enters any information in A1, then C1 displays the current date.
If a user selects 'Complete' from the drop-down list in B1, then D1 displays the current date. Both of these actions are independant of one another. This format is the same for every cell in the 4 columns indicated above. I thought I was able to do this in another spreadsheet I created a year or so ago but I have not been able to figure out what I did and I do not have the spreadsheet to look at.

When A Date Entered On A Specific Cell, Automatically Enter A Text In Other Cell

Jul 10, 2006

I have 6 Headings in excel named...

"A" in cell A1, B in B1, "C" in C1, "D" in D1, "E" in E1 and "F" in F1.

There are two projects.

Project 1 has phase A, D & F and Project 2 has phase A, B, C, D & E.

My Specification follows...

1). Take Prject 1 - Which starts from cell A2 I will keyin "A". When the phase comes to an end I will key in the end date of the phase. As soon as I key in the end date in cell A2 Letter D should automatically appear in the cell D2 and when Phase D comes to an end I will key in the end date in Cell D2 which should automatically keyin F in the cell F2. and is the same case for Project 2.

VBA Code To Populate A Cell Automatically Whenever Another Cell Is Filled In Manually?

Mar 29, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with 6 hidden columns (B to G). Rows 1 to 14 are frozen and have data that comes from another work book and these rows will be protected. The user will enter data from H14 to U14 and then H15 to U15 for the next row and so on down the sheet. The number of rows of data over a week is variable, a minimum of 21 rows (3 per day) but no maximum.

When the user starts entering new data in the column range H to U I would like to automatically populate the 6 hidden cells on that row with information from particular cells in protected rows 1 to 14. For example B14 would populate with the value from I4, C14 would populate with the value from I5, D14 from I6, E14 from I7 and so on whenever someone enters a value anywhere from H14 through to U14.

I can understand that a worksheet change event would be useful to do this but I guess then it wouldn't want to run every time each cell is populated so I think if it had to activate on a single cell change then the cell in column L would be best. Also, as I understand it, there can be only one block of code per sheet that operates on a worksheet change event, have I got that right? If that is the case then I assume all the code to populate the hidden cells on each row will need to be in this block of code.

Automatically Shade Cell Dependant Upon Text In Aother Cell

Jul 13, 2009

Im writing a spreadsheet that will act as a hotel room booking diary. There will be 52 sheets (representing each week of the year) and each sheet will therefore represent one week

Each sheet will look at operate the same. Running horizontally will be the days of the week and running vertically will be each of the bedrooms. There are 22 bedrooms in total and each room will have 12 cells allotted to it for each day - lets call this a 'block' and presume that the first block runs from C10 to c21. The final of these cells C21 will have a validation and the user can select 'PAID' 'TO PAY' or 'INVOICED'

If the user selects 'PAID' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade GREEN
If the user selects 'TO PAY' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade RED
If the user selects 'INVOICE' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade YELLOW

Filling A List From The Top?

Jan 18, 2013

I have a table of information on a worksheet and one of the columns determines whether the item in that row is active (there will be active and inactive items in this "Main List")

On a seperate worksheet (in the same file) I want to only display the active items in a new table (Overview) and always ensure it has no empy spaces other than at the bottom of the list, so if row 1/2 in the Main List are inactive items then the first row in the Overview List would display row 3 from the Main List.

Ideally I would rather do it in a formula than VB if possible.

I've attached a file showing what I am trying to explain, where the Overview tab currently has the data typed in it should automatically populate based on column "I" on the MainList tab.

Filling Down A Column Using VBA

Sep 25, 2007

I want to be able to have a macro that will compare one cell to the rest of the cells in a collum. I have used the COUNTIF() formula and it's getting on my nerves a bit because it seems as though everytime i sort the data, it totally messes up the formula (as in it changes the cell refernces to seemingly randomly generated numbers, but that is a different matter! lol). here is the formula, and it will be followed by the formula that is in the cell directly below it: =COUNTIF(F2:F65536, F2) and the one below it: =COUNTIF(F2:F65536, F3). Only one number needs to change, but when i fill down in excell, it wants to add one to every number, even when i click COPY cells... oh well. So i want to write this macro that will do just that. That way, it has fixed reference parameters e.g. F2:F65536, and one variable parameter e.g. F2, F3, F4 and so on. I'm not too savvy with this whole VBA stuff... the university insisted that everyone uses C++ nowadays, lol. I would like this macro to output its data into an adjacent cell ex. if F2 was compared, the data will be placed in H2.
