Find First Blank Cell In Column & Return Adjacent Date Less Than Or Equal To Today
how to make the data look like a table with three columns. Other than the date, it is space delimited. I have a tracking spreadsheet where Column A is populated with dates for the year. Column C contains daily values.

I don't always start entering daily values on the first day of the year, e.g., this year the first value in Column C corresponds to March 9. All values in Column C are contiguous - there are no blank cells until the value in Column A is greater than today's date code. I would like to use a formula (rather than VBA) to look down Column C and find the first non-blank entry where the value in Column A is less than or equal to today(). In this case, the formula should return the value for March 9, 2008.

CREATE TABLES LIKE BELOW?Column A Column B Column C

Cell Validation: Conditional Blank Value Prohibited
I would like to validate data but cant quite get the formula right. I have a cell (say F7) that cannot be blank if (say E7) another cell equals a text value (say "S"). Anyone have an idea? I am stumped at this seemingly easy task. I am applying the validation below to F7.

I forgot to add the valid combinations:
E7 = P and F7 = Entry: OK
E7 = P and F7 = Blank: OK
E7 = S and F7 = Entry: OK
E7 = S and F7 = Blank: INVALID

I have tried the formula: =IF(AND(E7="S",ISBLANK(F7)),1,0) within the validation window but blank entries are still allowed. I put this code in adjacent cells as a formula, the values are correct either 1 or 0.

SUMPRODUCT Formula To Equal Blank Value
I have a code which will delete all rows where the value in column C is blank. However my formula is column C is the following:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(ENERGY!$B$5:$B$147=B15),--(ENERGY!$E$5:$E$147=A15),ENERGY!$C$5:$C$147)

Is there a way to change this formula so that if a value is not returned, I get a blank cell?

Dim strValItems
strValItems = ""
Set rngValList = ShtBiz1.Range("A6", Range("A10000").End(xlUp))
With ShtBiz.Range("A6:A10000")
. Validation.Delete
For Each rngValCell In rngValList
If Len(strValItems) > 0 Then strValItems = strValItems & ","
strValItems = strValItems & rngValCell.Value

Next
.Validation.Add xlValidateList, , , strValItems
End With

so my problem is i need to add blank value in the top of the list .ie first value should be blank then other values which read from shtbiz1 has to be followed.

Data Validation List With Only Non-blank Cells
I have a list in one worksheet which comes from "=SALESMEN!$D:$D" but the list is extremely long with blank values. How can I make the list only show values from column D which are non-blank?

Currently the list goes up to 30, however I want to use all of Column D from the SALESMEN worksheet, that way if I add to it, the names will automatically be added to the list in the other sheet.

Cells Left Blank When Using Data Validation

Macro To Check Validation Dropdowns Left Blank
Got a table where I've placed Data validation - List on them.

Placed a macro on a button so that the data on the table where the validation list is placed is transfered to another sheet (same workbook).

What I need is a to modify the macro assigned to the button so that when the button is clicked to activate the macro:

a.) Can identify if there are any blanks on specified cells with validation list
b.) Stops the macro from copying the fields to the other sheet
c.) Alert the user of the blanks (an alert stating there is a blank would suffice)
d.) Alert should preferably be similar to a Stop alert from Data Validation.

Can anyone help? Been reading through several threads but don't seem to find anything that could help me - tried reading a Visual basic thread and now i've got a headache....

Values Which Are Equal Not Treated Equal
I'm having trouble with a small vba macro. At the end of the macro I test to see if two variables are equal and then print out true or false. However, for some reason even though the variables are equal vba is not treating them that way. I have put the values that represent the variables on a spreadsheet and used the if(x1=x2) formula and it says it is true, also, when I debug the macro and watch the values when it comes to test the logical expression the numbers are the same. I don't understand why vba does not say that the two variables are equal. I have attached a screenshot of the breakpoint where I double check the values are equal.

Delete Rows Where Cell Doesn't Equal Adjacent Cell
I have a sheet in Excel 2004 for Mac that is a patient list with over 2000 patients. I need a rule that will compare values (patient IDs and responsible party ID) in two adjacent cells, if the values are different, to delete the entire row. The goal is to get rid of patients (rows) that are not the responsible party (responsible party ID).

Last Occupied Cell To The Left And Equal To Or Above Current Cell
I've been pounding away at a project for two days trying to determine a way to identify a solution, to no avail.

Here is some experimental code. Under the assumption that in Column "A", every fifth line contains some text (a, b, c, etc) I want to place a function in column B that would identify the closest occupied cell above and to the left of the cell containing the function. The sub achieves this, but the function has a problem because of the Activecell line. Is there a way to identify the location of the cell containing the function to act as a reference point for the range?

Sub find_last_heading()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
x = ActiveCell.Address
ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Select
last_heading = ActiveCell.Text
Do Until last_heading ""
ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0).Select
last_heading = ActiveCell.Text
Loop
MsgBox last_heading
Range(x).Select
End Sub
Function cathead(Optional reference)

Dim cell

Identify Rows Where A Given Cell Is Equal To The Contents Of The Cell Below
I need to identify rows where the contents of a given cell are equivalent to the cell below. I have managed to get this working based on iterating through the cells and selecting them both for cutting.

However it doesn't work effectively: It seems to be leaving blank lines in the original sheet and further fails after the first execution. I would be grateful for any suggestions on a good method to perform the following operations:
(1)to compare the cell with the cell below
I have used

If cell = cell.Offset(1, 0) Then

(2)to act on the rows for the two connected rows

Sub Test4()

' Loop through rows

Dim TheExtract As String
Dim cell As Range

'Application. ScreenUpdating = False
For Each cell In Worksheets("Sheet 1"). _
Range("A1", Worksheets("Sheet 1").Range("A65536").End(xlUp))
TheExtract = cell
If cell = cell.Offset(1, 0) Then
cell.Rows("1:2").EntireRow.Select
Selection.Cut
Sheets("Test").Select
ActiveCell.Offset(3, 0).Rows("1:1").EntireRow.Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown
End If
Next cell
'Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Multiple Sum If A Cell Value Equal Another Cell
I'm doing a spreadsheet where there is ten cells or top ten positions. Where there is one sheet for where the ten values and another sheet with cells that might or might not match the other sheet. For instance.

If any cell A1 on sheet 1 matches cell A1 on sheet 2 Then give cell A15 the value of 10. The If cell A2 on sheet 1 matches A2 on sheet 2 Then add another 10 giving A15 a total of 20. And so on up To A10. Then If it doesn 't match exactly lets say If cell A4 on sheet 1 match cell A2 the Minis 4 from 2 giving you 2 Then minis 2 from 10 giving 8 While still totaling In cell A15, which would equal 18 now.

If the previous cell "filled with a number" in column D is equal to C17 Then C18 otherwise c17

This is the formula
This formula is in D38

This formula is in D65
I also need to apply the same to this formula

Delete Row When Cell Not Equal To Another
The code below is an attempt to delete all rows where the cell in column A is not equal to the value of B1. B1 is text if that somehow makes a difference.

Dim n As Long, lastrow As Long
lastrow = Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row
For n = lastrow To 1 Step -1
If Cells(n, 1) <> Range("B1") Then Cells(n, 1).EntireRow.Delete
Next n

Do I need to specify that B1 will always be the cell to reference (ie $B$1). Edit: Just had an epiphany, I also need it to stop after Row 3. I have some headers and such that I don't want removed.

Nested Data Validation: Figure A To Enforce Dual Data Validation On A Single Cell?
I'm trying to figure a to enforce dual data validation on a single cell. That is, I need to restrict the user to entering only a decimal value, only if a particular other cell (say A2) is blank. To put it another way, if A2 is blank, the user can enter a decimal value, but if A2 is not blank, the user cannot enter anything. I can use Data Validation to enforce either the decimal restriction or the ISBLANK, but I'm not sure how to make them work together.

Im also looking to do the same but with a sumif to perform the sum on a different column of data, but with the criteria LEFT(G15:G164, 4) & "" & "free") - (not sure if this bit is right either) staying the same.

For example, A1:A5 are {1,2,3,4,5}

AND

B3:B8 are {1,2,3,4,5}

Is there an array formula in C3 for example, that will check (i.e. say TRUE) if corresponding ranges are true i.e. check in this cell that A1=B3, A2=B4,...A5=B8.

I am trying to set up a data validation to ensure that when a user enters a number in column A that matches a previously entered number in column A, the user is only allowed to enter the same date for the number it matches in column B.

For example, if:

Row 3 column A = 1320

and

Row 3 column B = 16-Dec-07

and

Row 15 column A = 1320

then:

Row 15 column B must be 16-Dec-07

Validation/Conditional Formatting Cell From Cell
Excel 2003 Scenario:

Column H contains text data as follows down the rows: BIKE/CAR/TRUCK.

Column N contains text data that would be entered free text by user down the rows; however, if the data entered in column N is not contained in column H it would warn the data is not contained in column H. Example: BOAT is not found in column H. Note; it could contain all text in column H for that row or just one word in column H for that row.

The goal is to recognize the text entered in column N is not contained in column H, warn and change the color of the text in column N to red.

I attempted to use Data/Validation, and Conditional Formatting; none seem to have a contain function.

Is there a formula or VBA I may use or any thoughts?
