# Calculate If Specific Word Found In Column

Feb 15, 2008

I would like to use the following code to see if the word "reservoir" shows up in any of the rows in a certain column. If it does I want to insert the formula = SUM(D7:D257)*0.1 into cell C2 and if it doesn't then I want to put a 0 into cell C2. I've tried many routes but can't get past the error if it can't find the word.

Range("B7:B257").Find(What:="Reservoir").Activate

## How To Search For A Word In A Column And Have Entire Row Opaque Once Word Is Found

Sep 3, 2009

I need my macros to search for the word "Cancel" or "Cancelled" in columns "T" and "U". Once found, I need the macros to make that entire row an opaque shading.

There will be other wording in these cells that contain "Cancel" or "Cancelled". Is it possible for the macros to search in the sentence and find the words "Cancel" or "Cancelled"

I started on the code below but am stuck.

## Copy Row From One Sheet And Paste To Another If A Key Word Is Found In 1 Column?

Apr 15, 2014

I have 10 worksheets in my workbook. The two that I'm concerned with in this post are "Main" and "Completed".
If Column AA in "Main" contains the word "Complete" (which is from a drop down list) I want to copy the entire row from "Main" and paste in the "Complete" sheet without over-writting previous pasted rows.

Back in sheet "Main" I want the data in that row to be cleared with the exception of Column A as it contains a formula for sorting blanks. If I delete that row it will mess up my links on other sheets.

## Formula To Calculate How Many Cells Show A Specific Word

Sep 30, 2009

How can I create a formula to add up how many cells in a column show a particular set of text? For instance; the column in my spreadsheet looks something like this:

## Looking To Find 1 Of 2 Words In A Cell In Column B And Return Word Found In The Same

May 27, 2014

Looking to find 1 of 2 words in a cell in column B and return the word found in the same row in column E. This seemed easy but I am not having any luck.

the cells in column B have several words in them but I am looking for 2 specific words "PLAT" and "ORIG". If the word is not in the cell, it should show a blank cell in column E in the same row, otherwise one of the 2 words should be in that row in column E. A VBA loop would be ideal but a formula that can do it might work as well.

## How To Find Specific Word And Sum The Column According To That Word

Mar 14, 2014

I would like to have a formula find a specific word in column L and return the sum from column E for the same fund from column C.

I tried using =SUMIF(L:L,"*annual*",E:E) but that gives me the sum of annual for the entire column. I need to be able to specify the fund.

word "annual" also appears in "semi annual" so I need to be able to separate the two.

## If Specific Row Contains A Word Then Clear Specific Content In Corresponding Column

Jun 18, 2014

I have a row (will always be row 3) where each cell contains a day of the week, the days repeats for a year or so, making the row almost 400 cells.

Like this,
Mo - Tu - We - Th - Fr - Sa - Su - Mo - Tu - We - Th - Fr - Sa - Su - and so on...

Though, A3 doesn't have to be "Mo" because the days in this case can change (A3 can start with "Tu"), hence I think I need a macro.

So if this row contains a weekend, "Sa or "Su" I want all the cells in the column beneath that which contains a specific value to be cleared.

Example, if "Sa" or "Su" has 3 values in the columns under them, all the values that contain "X" or "Y" has to be cleared.

Like this:
Rows (1,2,3...,)
1----
2----
3 Mo - Tu - We - Th - Fr - Sa - Su - .. and so on..
4 A --- B --- X --- Y --- X --- B --- Y
5 A --- B --- X --- Y --- X --- X --- X
6 A --- B --- X --- Y - --X --- Y --- C

After the macro it should be:

1----
2----
3 Mo - Tu - We - Th - Fr - Sa - Su
4 A --- B --- X --- Y --- X --- B ---
5 A --- B --- X --- Y --- X --- ---
6 A --- B --- X --- Y - --X --- --- C

Notice the two examples in the excel file.

## Word Wrap VBA To Specific Column Width?

Jul 11, 2012

I have a database in excel, here's some sample data.

When they click the print button in Cell A2, up comes my form

When the print tags button is pressed, my secondary sheet is populated with the cell they clicked on

Now it's using a font, calibri 11, which isn't proportional but I was wondering if there's a way in VBA to "auto" detect the max width and place words on the next row accordingly (like a word wrap). Here's what I need it to look like:

Here's my existing code to place the comments as is:

Code:

entireComment = "Comments: " & Range("P" & i)
.Range("A" & cnt + 11).Value = Mid(entireComment, 1, 33)
If Len(entireComment) >= 36 Then

## Color Row If Cell In Column Contains Specific Word

Apr 17, 2008

I've been trying to come up with a conditional that will format a row if a cell contains any instance of a given word.

I know the following will format rows containing the EXACT entry of "apple" in column E:
=\$E1="apple"

But I'd like a conditional that will find entries like "apple pie" and "crabapple" as well. I'm sure it's a simple solution, using a SEARCH function or something...but I can't figure it out.

## Formula: Find Number In Range & Calculate If Found

Oct 10, 2006

I'm looking for a formula, which says if a number is within a range, perform a calculation. I have a table of ranges (0-6000,6001-10000,10000-12000, and so on). My formula looks at the current month cumulative balance, and inserts the value into the line of the range it falls into. However, the formula now contains lots of nested "IF" statements, due to the number of ranges I have. Also, if my cummulative balance is 6005 for example, but was 5005 in the previous month, I would like to see 95 in the 0-6000 row, and 5 in the 6000-10000 row. I making a complete nonsense of trying to explain myself, so I'll attach a quick example of what I'd like to see.

## VBA - Select And Copy Range Down After Specific Value Found

Nov 28, 2012

I have been trying to write VBA which basicly search for specific value in column A and copy values from that cell to down and two columns next. Select row and columns down after specific value in column A was find.

Like this
A B C
... ... ...

X 100 115

LR = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For i = 1 To LR
If Range("A" & i).Value = "9000" Then

## Down Rows Until Specific Value Is Found Within Index / Match Formula

May 14, 2014

My issue concerns going down rows in a data set. Due to the fact that the data set I am pulling from is not standardized, and roughly 10% of the data set has two extra rows of extraneous data below the reference cell (foreign currency balances which I don't need). The point in my formula is the "+2" (down two rows) condition. I needed it so that the "+2" is replaced with a condition inwhich after the reference cell in the INDEX( and MATCH( function is found the command goes down rows until the term "USD" is found. My formula is as follows:

{=IFERROR(INDEX('SHEET1'!\$A\$9:\$O\$10000,MATCH((RIGHT(C7,8)),(LEFT('SHEET1'!\$A\$9:\$A\$10000,8)),0)+2,11),INDEX('SHEET1'!\$A\$9:\$O\$10000,MATCH((RIGHT(C8,8)),(LEFT('SHEET1'!\$A\$9:\$A\$10000,8)),0)+2,11))}

Sheet 1 contains data in columns A to H.
Sheet 2 contains data only in column A.

I want Excel to check the data found in column A of Sheet 2 with those in Column A of Sheet 1. Hence, when an exact match is found in Column A of Sheet 1, Excel will delete that entire row.

## VBA Code To Stop Macro If Specific Text Is Found

Feb 24, 2012

I have a simple macro that copies data from worksheet to another. I only want this macro to be run once per day by the user. One of the cells that gets copied is the value found in the formula "=today()". My thought is that the macro could look for the existance of the current date in the pasted data (meaning the macro has already been run once today), and if the date = today, then a message pops up warning the user that the macro has already been run once today, and ask if they're sure they want to continue.

Any easy way to accomplish what I'm attempting to do? The current date gets pasted into a worksheet name "PriorDay" in cell C5.

## Count Of Cells Where Occurrence Of Some Specific Text Is Found

May 28, 2013

I have a spreadsheet that lists all the work done by employees within a specific area. Some employees cover multiple areas.

I am now needing to work out the average work completed by each area. I need a formula that will count the number of employees by each work area.

I know this is something I have done before, but my mind has gone blank and I can't for the life of me work it out again (it's one of those days).

Row 3 of the spreadsheet contains the codes for the work areas they cover (CM, V & TC) and some employees only cover one (which would be a simple CountIf) but some have multiple.

What is the formula to, for example, count the number of people who have CM in row 3 even if they also have other entries in that cell.
