not compatible with older versions of Excel? When I try and open my workbook on an older version (2000 and below) I get a runtime error and it highlights this. What's weird is that even when I open the it at home I get this and I have 2003 at home.
In Excel 2003, I remember being able to tab across a row of cell entering data and when I got to the end, I'd hit enter and it would take me to the beginning of the next row. But in 2007, I can't...is there something I need to do in Excel Options or is this function gone?
I am working with a data sheet that holds a cell containing a number of position entries with each entry separated by a carriage return within the cell. I need to determine the entry associated with Accountant. The formula below determines if the entry Accountant exists and if so, displays 14 characters of information starting after the 12th character. The entry after "Accountant" is variable, but will have a carriage return at the end of the line. How can I identify the placement of the carriage return after the Accountant: entry?
Selection.Replace What:="GD", Replacement:="BLACK", _ LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:= _ False, ReplaceFormat:=False Selection.Replace What:="WD", Replacement:="WHITE", _ LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:= _ False, ReplaceFormat:=False GD and WD are in the same cell, I would like the end result to go from GD WD to:
A cell contains the name, tel number and address of a user. Those 3 fields are separated by a carriage return (alt+enter) in the cell. I need a macro to keep only the name, which is on the first line of the cell. The macro should be generic and should work for any particular name.
I am looking for some assistance in creating a macro that would allow me with one key stroke to enter a cell in edit mode, add a carriage return to the end of text in the cell, then move the cursor to the next cell.
When I save my file as text and upload into a program, I get a response saying that my file can't be processed due to carriage returns. What are these things and how do I get rid of them? My excel file has about 6000 rows and 50 columns of data.
I have 4 cells with text in them that I am trying to combine into one cell and not have any blank lines between the text. The cells are arranged like this:
A1="One"B1=Cell where the text is combined A2="Two" A3="Three" A4="Four"
I set the cell alignment in B1 to wrap text and use the following formula in B1: =IF(A1=,,A1)&IF(A2=,,CHAR(10)&A2)&IF(A3=,,CHAR(10)&A3)&IF(A4=,,CHAR(10)&A4)
The problem is if there isnt anything in one of the cells in column A it makes a blank line between the text in column B. I am trying to get the text to the top of B1 and not have any blank lines between the lines of text. Is there a way to change the formula so that it will do the following three things:
1. If the cell A1 doesnt have anything in it then dont put the value in B1. 2. If A1 has something in it and A2 has something in it then put the text of A1 in B1 and HAVE a carriage return after the A1 text. 3. If A1 has something in it and A2 does not have anything in it then put the text of A1 in B1 but DO NOT have a carriage return after it.
I have done a search on carriage returns/characters and what has been suggested is not working. I have BOTH carriage returns in the cell and also the boxes (that I assume are also carriage returns. I tried the substitute formula (=substitute(cellref,char(10),)) in excel but it only removes the alt+enter carriage return. I tried the various suggestions of find & replace but the chr$..etc did not work! Is there a formula to clear both in one (not a macro!)..?
I'm working with a document that has several cells which require double carriage returns within cells. The location of each space is marked with an @ sign. A few weeks ago, I found an article online that explained how to do a find replace where the find value was '@' and the replace value was a series of numbers/characters that created a carriage return. When I doubled the carriage return code I got my two spaces. If I remember correctly, the string that I entered still appeared in the cell, so I needed to clean up afterwards by replacing that string with ' ', but it still left the line break.
I need some direction on how to proceed with dismantling an address cell. I have a workbook that one field is an address label field. What I mean is the entire address is entered in one field just as it would appear on an envelope. I need some suggestions on how to break this apart and create individual fields for the individual parts.
Which works great for values in the reference cell that do not contain carriage returns, which is possible. The problem I am running into is that if the reference cell contains a carriage return the destination cell just ignores it and crams the lines together for display purposes. Is there a way/formula I can use to force excel to display 'exactly' as entered, in cell returns and all?
Is there a way to delete excessive carriage returns at the beginning of data. I pull reports from a SharePoint list where submitter entries often often contain multiple carriage returns before the text or data. I use ASAP utlitily to clean out excessive spaces before and after data, but I don't find a way to remove these multiple carriage returns so that the text entries are easily viewable when row-height is less than gigantic. Cells with extra carriage returns before the text entries end up looking like the following: ___________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | | | Product page for CQ1-14047.LA is missing Swindex section (Core Drivers). | |__________________________________________________________________|
I have a situation where I have source data formatted like this:
Document ID Document Name Author
What I would like to do is to get each author on a separate row. I am able to do that using Text to Columns using the carriage return and then doing a transpose. I've also seen some threads where VBA is used to accomplish similar. However where I am stuck at is getting everything else to drop down accordingly. I.e. with the data set above I'd like to get to:
