Carriage Return In VBA
I need to include over 70 data fields in a pivot table that I want to add/remove with a pivot. They need to have an alternative caption and be formatted.
I am currently using the following piece of
.Orientation = xlDataField
.NumberFormat = "#,##0"
.Function = xlSum
.Caption = "Products 2007-08"
However, I need to do this many times and it is a bit painful. I have created a spreadsheet with concatenated fields to create the above, although on one line which isn't liked by VB.
How can I make my code work but with it all on one line like:
With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("tytwprods_v_lytwprods_(abs)").Orientation = xlDataField .NumberFormat = "#,##0" .Function = xlSum .Caption = "Products 2007-08"
Carriage Return - Chr(10)
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.
Find Replace With A Carriage Return Using VB

GD and WD are in the same cell, I would like the end result to go from GD WD to:
Deleting Text After Carriage Return
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.
Replace Line Feed With Carriage Return In Text File
If I write a multi-line text in a cell (then go down with alt+enter) and after copy the cell pasting on Notepad, it display before inverted commas and after textual content.
Instead, if I select directly the content from the formula bar, it isn't happen.
Do exist a way for copy and paste directly from the cell without select from the formula bar?
Maybe with a macro?
Concatenate TODAY() Function
I want a report header to be similar to: REPORT AS OF 2/23/10. If I use the TODAY() function by itself, I get the date; 2/23/10. But when I concatenate it with the text "REPORT AS OF " & TODAY()" I get REPORT AS OF 40232". How do I preserve the date format when I concatenate it with text?
Using Function To Concatenate Cells
I have data in cells A1:A50. I want to combine all of them into cell A51. I know that I can achieve that by using =concatenate(A1,A2,A3,A4,........,A50) or =A1&A2&A3&A4&......&A50 but it would be very tiring to click on each cell. Just imagine if the data in cells A1:A1000? function that work like say =combine(A1:A50).
Concatenate Function- Two Texts In Two Cells
I have two texts in two cells. e.g in A1 I have JOHN, and in B1 I have SMITH.
I need to cocatenate these two texts in a third cell (=CONCATENATE(A1, B1) /or I can use = A1 & " " & B1). It's fine till I concatenate.
But I need the output in the following format:
The second text needs to be in ITALICS.
Concatenate Function To Merge Certain Columns
I have a worksheet with 10000 plus entries in ten columns From K to T. I wish to have a macro with Concatenate function to merge certain Columns from these ten columns, in one column with help of input boxes which may ask inputs, about range (from and to ), and number of digits to concatenate in the required column. I use Excel 2003 XP in work but an example is 2007 attached.
Concatenate Function To Cell Macro Code
Need to take column J20:J255 and column K20:K255 and concatenate into activesheet K20:K255. This needs to happen when OptionButton1.Value=True. The information in each cell will be different. The following code works well, but it will not allow me to put a space in between the two strings.
Private Sub OptionButton2_Click()
Dim DescriptionCell As Range
Set DescriptionCell = ActiveSheet.Range("D20:D54")
If OptionButton2.Value = True Then
.NumberFormat = General
.Formula = "=CONCATENATE('Bill of Materials-3'!F20,'Bill of Materials-3'!I20)"
CONCATENATE Function To Merge 2 Strings Together Into A Single Cell
I have been using the CONCATENATE function to merge 2 strings together into a single cell. However the problem is, the third concatenated cell depends on the other 2 existing. The idea is I want to take 2 columns of data, and use a formula to merge them, then delete the original 2 data columns so I have a single column with the full data merged.
COL 1 (A3) = First Name
COL 2 (B3) = Last Name
COL 3 (C3) = Full Name (wanted)
So I do =CONCATENATE(A3,B3) and that puts the fullname in C3, but I want to sort of "flatten" C3 so that I have the fullname by itself and I can delete the original cells (A, and B)
Concatenate Function It Appears To Put Quotes Around The Entire Result
The above statement works great, but when I try to replace the HQA01 (worksheet name) with a cell reference it doesn't work anymore. I want to point to the cell that has that name of the sheet in it rather than hardcode each sheet name.
When I try the &, or the concatenate function it appears to put quotes around the entire result
Concatenate Function To Join Some Text Strings To A Cell On A Different Sheet
I have been trying to use the concatenate function to join some text strings to a cell on a different sheet - From an input sheet -Sheet 1 named Input, to a Notification Form (Sheet 2). Although the Function Argument display tells me that it will display the result I want it actually displays just the formula. It's a very simple thing
Address 1 10 Downing Street
Address 2 Westminster
Address 3 London
Postcode SW1A 1AA
I want displayed as: 10 Downing Street, Westminster, London, SW1A 1AA in a single merged cell. All I am getting on the Form is =concatenate(Input!c25," ",Input!c26," "Input!c27," "Input!c28). I feel sure that it is a very easy solution but I can't arrive at it!!
Incorporate Concatenate Funtion: Return Text Rather Than A '0'
I have the following formula: ...................
and excel is saying I used too many characters and to use the concatenate function to do so, but I have no idea how.
I wanted to return text rather than a '0' in the case that all the original IF statements were false, I threw another IF statement in there and said if the original is equal to '0', then return "-". If not, then run through the original again (I pasted the original again after the "-").
Concatenate Duplicates: Concatenate Results Of All Equal P/N's From Any Given List
I have a list of P/N's that are used in more then one location. and it's sorted by P/N's.
I Want to be able to put in Col A the concatenate results of all equal P/N's from any given list. Or at least select the few cells that i know are duplicates and from that copy the Location to a single Column.
DATE Function & IF Function (return A TRUE Or FALSE Based On A Date In A Cell)
I am trying to return a TRUE or FALSE based on a date in a cell.
if cell A1 = 07/11/2009
I want A2 to show TRUE or FALSE if A1 is 14 days or more behind todays date.
I have tried stuff like:
but it just always says false. EDIT: I have just noticed that if I change the date in A1 to exactly 14 days behind todays, it returns TRUE. So, it does work. Do I need to add a GREATER THAN in there?
Conditional Concatenate Function: References ConcatenateIf Displays "#NAME?"
I have two tabs that reference the function ConcatenateIf(), defined by me, see below:
Function ConcatenateIf(iRange As Range, iLook As String, iNum As Integer)
For Each cell In iRange
If cell.Value <> iLook Then
ConcatenateIf = ConcatenateIf & Chr$(10) & cell.Offset(0, iNum).Value
Works great. But then, I copy one of the tabs to make a third tab, and suddenly every cell in all three spreadsheets that references ConcatenateIf displays "#NAME?".
How Do I Get Rid Of Carriage Returns?
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.
Function Return 0 Value
Is it possible to add some code that will make the function return 0 if it would otherwise return #VALUE!.
Without getting to involved here is the main piece of code.

Remove Trailing Carriage Returns
I have an SQL query that returns some text data to a cell from another system.
In this system the users sometimes enter superfluous carriage returns after the text.
Can someone tell me how to write a formula/VBA code that would remove the trailing carriage return/s.
Search On Carriage Returns/characters
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!)..?
Combine Text With Carriage Returns
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
I set the cell alignment in B1 to wrap text and use the following formula in B1:
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.
Return Variable From Function
I've searched for an example of function that returns a variable, however, I'm unable to find one other than the one just has return variable on the end. I was wondering what I have wrong in the following code. This is placed in a module to make it available to all my worksheets.
Public Function findLR(Worksheet, Column) As Integer
LR = Worksheet.Cells(Rows.count, Column).End(xlUp).Row
Return Function As An Argument
When I try a MATCH function, I substituted the range through the ADDRESS function. But, it returns #VALUE error. When I manually typed the same range address, it produces the results. I've been behind this more than 8 hours still I can resist the heat on my cool head! But, I thought you coolest head guys need some heat to warm up for to-day's challenge.
IF Function To Return A False Value
I am trying to use the IF function to return a false value if the combined sum of a row is not the same as either of the 1st 2 cells. If that makes any sense!
This is the formula I would like to use. =IF(SUM(g3:g9)=g1 or g2 then y if true and x if false. I thought it would be easy but I can't figure out how to do it
How To Remove Square Carriage Returns From My Cells
I have a worksheet containing square carriage return symbols (see below).
Eg1. BakedBeans on Toast
Eg2. SmokedSalmon in Brine
Eg3. Ice Cream Cosmopolitan
Eg4. MixedNutsper kilo
Eg5. Baby ShampooFragrance Free
This data was extracted from an SQL Database and dumped into Excel.
I would like to know if someone can suggest a script to replace all occurrences of  with a space.
Once I perform this, I can then perform a Search/Replace function as follows:
Replace 4 spaces with 1 Space
Replace 3 spaces with 1 Space
Replace 2 spaces with 1 Space
Hopefully then, the final result will appear as follows:
Eg1. Baked Beans on Toast
Eg2. Smoked Salmon in Brine
Eg3. Ice Cream Cosmopolitan
Eg4. Mixed Nuts per kilo
Eg5. Baby Shampoo Fragrance Free
Eg5. is a little tricky because a space will appear at the beginning of the cell (see above). It would be good if there's a script to remove occurrences of this also.
Replacing Carriage Returns With Delimiter Within A Cell
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.
If Function To Return No. Based On 2 Cells?
I need help on using the If function. Basically I am trying to calculate the cost of shipments. For example, cost of sending 1 box is 150 (eg cell A3), 2 boxes is 280 (cell A4), 3 boxes is 400 (A5), 4 boxes is 500, etc upto to 10 boxes (cell A12).
What I am looking for is cell A1 to provide me the cost based on the manually entered value of cell A2, i.e. if I enter a number between 1 to 10 in cell A2, then A1 should return a number from A3 to A12, e.g. enter 3 in A2 then A1 should return 400.
Is there such a formula or do I have to enter manually the amounts into an If function?
Function To Return Last Modified File
I don't really know VBA more than just piecing together other people's work (so please dumb down your responses as much as possible).
So I would like to have a function that displays a filename within a cell. The filename I need to display will start with "cost" and have a date at the end (not always the same number of characters). I need to search a folder for all files that contain that text and return the last modified one.
I found this VBA code that returns the last modified file, but only filters based on the extension (which I would like to keep in the code as well).
