Bold Selected Text In A Column

Jan 30, 2007

Every week I have a worksheet compiled with large range of data, being input after many meetings done. The action-owner Names in open/close brackets are among the long text input in one Column (there are not more than 50 rows of data).

My problem is that in the Column every time I have to manually Bold-face the owner names in the cells that have their names, pressing F2 and Bold. Examples: ...(Wilfred)... or ...(Jacky/Joseph)... Can someone please help me with a code, say I can list out a fixed list of selected text and such code will be able to have these selected text (which is names in this case) in the cells bold-faced.

I am merging columns. Col B has all text in bold. Col C has all text in regular font. When I use ASAP to merge, the merged column comes out all bold.

Trying To Find Max Date In 1 Column For Selected Text In Another Column

Apr 10, 2009

I have 2 columns: Locations (Column A) & Dates (Column B).

I want to find the most recent date for a selected Location (stored in $G$1).

currently I have in C2: =If($A2=$G$1,$B2,"") copied down the column to the end of data (currently C153). Then in C1: =Max(C$2:C$153).

I also have in D2: =If($C2<$C$1,$C2,"") copied down to D153, and in D1: =Max(D$2:D$153) to find the 2nd most recent date.

Is there some way to condense this into just 2 cells?

See attached file for example (note the columns are currently sorted by date, but that is not always the case).

Text To Column For Selected Rows

Sep 22, 2006

Iíve got a little problem with the text to column function.

Iíve got in column A critarias and if it is for example L it should run a surtain text to column code.

With Range("A1:A65536")
. AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="L"
Range("B1").Select
Selection.End(xlDown).Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).TextToColumnS Destination:=Range("B2"), DataType:=xlFixedWidth, FieldInfo:= Array(Array(0, 1), Array(21, 1), Array(60, 1))
End With

With the Auto Filter some rows between 2 until 7624 are shown. But unfortunately the text to column code is used for every row between 2 and 7624. Does anyone know how to avoid it?

Copy Cells From Column To Adjacent Column If Bold Or Empty

May 20, 2008

I have a worksheet on which the data is already grouped. At the top of each group is a row that contains only the group name. Since the rest of that row is blank, I want to use a blank cell on that row as a reference, then copy the group name to a newly created column, then fill that column down to the next group.

The goal is to create a column that contains the group name, rather than just having the group name as a " header" at the top of each group.

Excel 2010 :: VBA Code For Inserting Text In All Column B-cells Of Multiple Selected Rows

Jul 11, 2012

Software: Excel 2010, Windows 7

What is the VBA code for inserting text in all column B-cells of multiple selected rows?

I am creating a worksheet with a table containing various data related to orders of various materials (this is more or less data gathering from an older, paper-based 'system'). This table spans, columnwise, from A to D and expands downwards as more orders are added. The information in each column is: A=order number, B=type of material and C=material specs. and D=additional comments.

I've set it up so that the only thing I really have to do is to insert the type of material in the cells of column B, and the rest will sort itself out. Instead of having to insert a new row for each new entry and manually typing in the name of the material (these entries are often done in the midst of already existing data), I created several similar, macroed buttons for the different types of materials we use. These macros work by selecting the row of the currently active cell, inserting a new row and then add the name of the material in the column B-cell of this new row. What I am having trouble doing though, is to get the text-entry to work for a selection of multiple cells.

As an example, lets say that I would like to add 5 orders of "Grade A Steel" in the middle of the table - in the row above row 8. With the macro I currently have I can select cell B5, click the macro, and a new row will be inserted with "Grade A Steel" in column B of this new row. This action could be performed 5 times over, but would be easier if I could just mark a range of 5 cells, say B8:B12, click the macro and get the text/data inserted the column B-cells of all 5 of the new rows. So far I've been able to create a macro that inserts multiple new rows, but I've only been successful in filling the column B-cell in the first row leaving the 4 below empty.

Fill Range Of Cells With Text When Listbox Option Selected - Clear When Not Selected

Jul 25, 2014

I am using this code to hide or unhide rows of text on another sheet:

VB:
Sub ProcessSheet1ChangeOnCellJ7(ByVal Target As Range)

Dim sAddress As String
Dim sValue As String

'Get the address of the cell that changed without '$' signs
sAddress = Target.Address(False, False)

[Code]....

When the "Not Pursuing" list box option is selected (in cell "J7" or "J8" in Sheet 1) I need to add (or over-write) "Not Pursuing" to the range of cells in column "B" (in the "Tasks" sheet), but only for that particular Goal, meaning a limited range of cells in column "B". If the "Pursuing - Show All Tasks" option is selected for a Goal then these same cells need to be blank so that the appropriate person can enter their name into the cell.

The purpose for adding "Not Pursuing" automatically to these yellow highlighted cells is that it will facilitate filtering of tasks by individual in the "Tasks" sheet..

Again I have tried several times to upload a sample file and am unable to, which I know makes it more difficult to solve. (Is there some common mistake people make? I know it's an allowed format and is very small in file size....)

Code solution can be entered directly beneath:

VB:
If Target.Value = "Not Pursuing" Then
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Tasks").Rows("29:29").EntireRow.Hidden = False
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Tasks").Rows("30:48").EntireRow.Hidden = True

Bold Specific Text In A Cell

May 22, 2014

I am trying to bold specific text in a cell. I have found some language that will do this trick to a point. In addition to the word "Foxwood" I would like to bold 9 other specific words in 5 different sheets in this workbook. Is there a way to do this without the cumbersome task of repeating this language 5 times for the different sheets and 9 times for the additional words?

Dim startPos As Integer
Dim totalLen As Integer
Dim searchText As String
searchText = "Foxwood"
For Each cl In Sheets("Week1").Range("c3:c100")

The name Albert Young is bold. The thing is I would like to split the cell putting the names in another colomn. Then it would be ideal to split the addresses and phone numbers as well. But I have no idea how to split any of these. I scanned this from a phone book, the dots are different on each row.

Automatically Copy Only BOLD Text

Jul 1, 2004

I have a spreadsheet with a pivot table in it. Column "G" has all of the data in it I need to abbreviate, problem is, I only want the values in BOLD face, and there are 3-5 rows seperating each boldfaced item. I would have to manually copy-paste each bold value into a new, 'clean' column ( column "I", or in a new sheet/workbook, it doesn't matter), and lather-rinse-repeat for the next 700+ rows. It sucks. No, it really does. I stumbled upon this website which is seemingly the utopia for excel macro and programming problems, so is there anyone out there that might take the time to walk me through it...?

To Bold A Part Of The Cell Text

Apr 8, 2007

I am creating a sheet with the cell information coming from different cells. I want to bold and/or underline a part of the cell to add clarity.

For e.g.
Cell A1 = "Trans X" (Name of the transaction);
Cell B1 = "System Y" (System where the transaction exists)
Cell C1 = "Type Z" (Type of transaction)

I want to create a cell which has
Newsheet.Cell (x,y) =
"Name: Trans X
System: System Y
Type: Type Z"

I created the String by reading and concatenating the values, but I am not sure how to add the formatting to a part of the string.

Bold Common Text In 2 Strings

I'm not too sure if this will be really easy difficult or really difficult but I want to write some code that compares the value of two strings, and any characters that arent in string 2 will be return formatted in bold. For example, if String1 was "The Quick Brown Fox" and String2 was "The Quick Yellow Fox jumped over the lazy dog", String2 would then be returned as "The Quick Yellow Fox jumped over the lazy dog".

Bold Part Text In Message Box

Feb 29, 2008

I've got a messagebox in my VBA code and I would like to bold the title of the filename that I've stored in a variable. My message box code (even though you probably don't need to see it) is as follows:

MsgBox ("There has been error. Please check the file - " & strFile & " and make sure there are no #REF errors." & vbCrLf _
& "If there are, correct the errors, save the workbook and regenerate the report. If the error still persists, reboot your machine and try again.")

Is this possible, and if so, how would I go about bolding the strFile variable?
