Change Format Of Multiple Keywords

Keyword Search - Macros To Change Font Color For Specific Keywords (not Entire Cell)

May 5, 2014

I need to conduct keyword searches in excel and color the keywords a different color without changing the font color of the entire cell. now, i found some code from another thread that does this, but i cant seem to get it to work with more than 2 keywords. i need fine-tuning the provided code to do what i need it to do.

[URL]

the VBA code i used was this:

[Code].....

I was playing around with the example, the Cat_Mouse.xlsm, and when i modified the 'myList' and 'myColor' arrays, it does not work.

Cat_Mouse.xlsm

For example, I modified the code to add the word bat:

[Code] .....

When i run the macros, the word "Bat" does not become colored red. interestingly enough, when i substitute the word "bat" for the word "hat" in the "myLIST array, the word "hat" does change to the red font.

I am looking to use this code to address keywords in my excel file by coloring all key words red and i have more than 10 key words.

Search Multiple Worksheets For Several Keywords

May 11, 2009

I am trying to set up a worksheet which takes keywords from several cells (user populates these cells) and searches all worksheets for these keywords.

for example, i have C1:G1 set up as possible search string entry cells where the user types their text. I need a function which takes the data in whichever of these cells have been filled in (i.e. it may only be in 1 cell, 2 cells or all 5) and searches each worksheet for all cells containing ALL keywords. (as it finds each one, i will highlight the cell, but that part of the code is obviously very easy )

Currently i have this (note, i havent yet figured out how to but the k1 to k5 variables into the search string yet which is why they are set but not used):
At the moment, its not ever looking past worksheet 1 - can anyone see why? and then how to i get it to look for all entered keywords?

Search Multiple Keywords In A String?

Jan 22, 2014

I am busy building a spreadsheet that must do the following.

A
B
C
D
E

[Code].....

Above is a basic example of the data I am using What the spreadsheet must do is it must search cell B1 for the key word in in cell E1, if it does not find the keyword, it must search the same cell for the keyword in cell E2 and so on if it finds the key word it must return a consatination of cell A1 and the Keyword.

This is easy enough to do using the search function together with a couple of nested IF statements but where the problem comes in is that I am needing to run the search on about 12000 lines using over 10000 key words.

currently I have sheet with a formula in Column A containing 40 nested IFs searching for the first 40 key the same formula in Column B searching for the next 40 keywords and so on but to search 10 000 keywords(Client name or Client number) I am needing to apply this formula to 250 columns over 12000 line which makes the sheet very resource incentive.

How do I streamline this to make the spreadsheet more efficient

Finding Keywords To Identify Product In Multiple Cells

Jul 23, 2012

Macro - it is currently set up to find a specific text, and activate that cell. From there, the spreadsheet has data in 6 cells in the 6 rows below the active cell. What I need the macro to do is to identify the product based on key words in a range of cells: that is, if any of those cells contain the string "total", than the product type is total, but if "total" is not found, look for keywords such as "alpha" and "beta", to identify the product type. If its not a total product, then i want it to look for "productB", "productc", and so on with relevant keywords until the product is identified.

I think IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH can be used, but I'm not sure how, and I'm not sure how to search all 6 cells (to make things worse, the number of cells vary, so I'm using the "find" function to figure out the first and last cell that contain data).

Using Formula To Target Multiple Keywords In Order To Categorize Cells

Jan 15, 2014

I have a big file here : [URL] .....

As you can see, the second column contains abstracts which I want to use to determine categories for each document (each line).

Categories are as followed :
Diabetes prevention -> keywords : sugar, diabet*, insulin*
Obesity prevention -> keywords : weight-loss, fat*, LDL
etc. (5-8 categories)

To target one keyword, I found this formula :
=IF(IFERROR(SEARCH("*diabet*"; $B3); 0); "Diabetes prevention"; " ")

What I would like to know is how to add more than one keywords in this formula.

I would also like to know, if it is even possible, how to put every categories in this column, so that i don't have a category per column ... It's hard to explain.

I want to have in front of each line the corresponding column. It means that the formula has to search for every keywords and select one or more appropriate categories.

Userform Date Format Reverting Back To Us Format On Change Event

Aug 10, 2009

I have created a userform but I am having extensive problems with the date formats.

My system is set to UK and short date is set to: DD/MM/YYYY

When I used code to add the values in the userform to the spreadsheet, any that contained a date format would revert to the US format.

So I finally figured out to use DateValue to format it correctly for example: ...

Macro To Change Date Format To General Format

Oct 17, 2012

I have two columns where there are dates (e.g. 11/05/2009) in a date format; I would like to change the format to `general`; but without losing the original values, i.e. I still want to see 11/05/2009, but just in `general`format. Is it possible to create a macro that will do that? I want these values to stay in the same place, i.e. if it is in cell K10, I still want to have it there - just in other format.

Fast Typing With Keywords

Mar 1, 2007

I'm working on an Excel spreadsheet and basicly i'm inserting manually data from a lot of paper forms.

It isn't a dificult thing, but is boring, because I have to do more than 2000 forms per week!
I want to accelerate, and how to do that

Problem: "Address"! The Excel page that i'm working has a column to feel with Addresses manually, but I have a table with all correct Address names from the city that I'm working about in other page.

What I would like is when start typing some keyword from the Address cell, it could show me all the choises of input (based on the correct Address Table)

Excel, by default, show, by exact order, all the choises, already typed on the same collumn.
I don't want that.

- imagine I have the Table 1 (representing the table with all city adresses) with a collumn called 'Address' with:

A1 - Street ZXY
A2 - Avenue QWE
A3 - Street QWE
A4 - Avenue ZXY

when typing on another Table, if I write something like QWE show me the A2 and A3 to choose wich I'm going to feel, and the same to ZXY, showing the A1 and A4. Other thing, if I write QWE street may show A3 also. Keyword is what i'm talking about

Change Format Of Many Lines

Sep 8, 2009

I need to turn millions (I'm guessing around 4-5 million, though I'm not completely sure since I don't have a program that can actually open the file completely since it's so large) of lines of text which are formatted like this:


05/15/09 09:45:01 AM 16600 1

into lines which are formatted like this:


20090515 094501;16600;1

I could do it by hand, but since there are literally millions of lines like this, it would probably take me about a year to do. So my questions are:

1. Is there a way to do this relatively quickly in Excel?

2. When I open this file in Excel, the year and time tabs aren't filled in with the year and time, but simply with "#######", though if I click on the cell, the year or time is displayed up in the "fx" function bar thing. Is there a way to keep these cells from displaying as "#######"?

3. Right now when I open the file (it's a CSV file), it only opens a little over 1 million of the lines, and an alert pops up that says the entire file was not opened. Is there any way to get the entire file to open? If not, how could I split the file into pieces that are small enough for Excel, and then how could I join those pieces back together?

Change The Date Format

May 27, 2009

when I do Format Cell, the date formats offered use US formats like 20/02/1999. Why does it do this, and can I fix it? I suspect that this the root of the following problem.

I have a button on a userform to enter today's date into a textbox. It enters it as 05/27/2009. The wrong format. I save the data to the worksheet, then use the data form to go to the next record, then back. The date then appears in the correct format as 27/05/2009.

Another related problem: if I enter a date manually into the textbox on the dataform, such as 2/3/2008, it interprets it as Feb. 3, and when I save it to the worksheet, and then use the form to view it, it comes out as 3/2/2008.

Range Between Two Keywords In Specific Column

Jan 11, 2014

Currently running a macro which selects all the rows between two specific words and pastes the selection into another worksheet. However, it runs this search on the entire workbook, whereas I'd just like it to run the search in a particular column (column D in this instance).

This is the code as it currently stands:

VB:
With ActiveSheet
.Range(.Cells.Find("financial assets"), .Cells.Find("liabilities")).EntireRow.Select
End With

.Selection.Copy
Sheets("Paste Currency").Activate
Range("A1").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False

Is there any way to focus the search on only one column?
