Change And Show Letter With F9 Or Random Or Any Formula

Jun 7, 2009

I just want to show a letter and change it to any letter and show it again in seconds. Can it be done with formula, maybe with RAND formula or any other formula.

for example when i press F9 the letter A change B, and then i press F9, it changed to C, and then when i press F9 and it changed to A again, and i press F9 and it changed to B, and so on...

(Is it possible too..with a little variation if i press F9 continually, it changed every 5 second?)

Formula Required To Take First Letter In 1 Cells And Add Random Number To Create Unique ID

Mar 27, 2014

I have 1200 doctor/patient records to input into an excel spreadsheet for import to an online EHR database. I can set up all the normal formulas and formatting but for the life of me not figure out how to create a custom formula to take the first letter of the patient first name and last name and add 6 figures to create a unique patient identifier.

ie. James + Smith+ random 6 figures = JS245318.

In my spreadsheet the first name is under Column 1, Last name Column 3 and the unique number generated in column 4.

How To Use RIGHT Formula To Show Value Until Capital Letter

Dec 29, 2011

I was wondering whether it is possible to find a formula in Excel that would extract (using RIGHT formula) surname from Name Surname cell despite surname lenght i.e.:

'John Smith' in one cell would give 'Smith' in the other
'Tom Let' in one cell would give 'Let' in the other

I have tried to combine RIGHT, FIND and PROPER (for upper case) in one formula but it does not work.

Formula To Show A Change In A Row

Aug 24, 2007

I'm working through a huge file and trying to compact it down and make it more workable. I've already managed to get it down to what i need but i now need to add a few things so others can work it more easily also.

One of the ideas i had was the following, but for the life of me i dont know where to start.

The spreadsheet will be updated on a daily basis and at the end of each week we will need to submit any changes we've made to the marketing team.
However the change tracker thats built into excel isn't really what i want.

What i though was i should set up an IF formula that would return a True value if any data in that row was changed.
Then i could set up a macro to copy those rows only to a new sheet to be sent to the marketing team, this way the structure of the spreadsheet would be kept to make it easier for them.

Show Full File Path Ignoring Drive Letter

May 2, 2014

I am trying to allow users to select a file, and then the file name/ the file path / and date are added.

Right now, all those functions work in the following code, but the file path shows up as a letter drive. As there could be upwards of 50 people using this file and the mapped drive could be different, i wanted the full path to be displayed.

Code:
Private Sub File_1_overwrite_Click()

Dim filename As Variant
Dim filename1 As Variant

filename = Application.GetOpenFilename(, , "Select Programme")
filename1 = filename
filename1 = Mid(filename, InStrRev(filename, "") + 1)
File_1_link = filename
file_1_name = filename1
File_1_date = Format(Date, "MM/DD/YY")

VBA Code To Change Font Colour Of Cell Referenced Letter Strings Within Range Of Cells

Jun 13, 2014

I am working on a spreadsheet for work, and have managed to do everything I need to so far but I need to colour specific letter strings, certain colours within a range of cells (each letter string will only appear once on each sheet)

The strings I will be looking for vary depending on data entered so I will need to cell reference them

The strings that need colouring are in cells with other strings that must stay black (They cannot be separated from other strings due to the nature of the grid)

I need some strings red, some green, and some blue.

These changes should also apply to the whole workbook not just one sheet.

Is there a way to do this with the VBA code.

Return Column Letter Based On The Letter In A Cell.

Dec 31, 2009

For the below formula is it possible to replace the B's (column location) with a cell Say Z146 which contains the letter B (or a number if thats easier and someone can tell me the numbers for each column).

When the formula is dragged into the next cell (down) it takes its column reference from Z147 and then my life becomes so much easier.

=IF(INDEX('Overs-Unders'!B:B,MATCH($C145,'Overs-Unders'!$A:$A,0))"",INDEX('Overs-Unders'!B:B,MATCH($C145,'Overs-Unders'!$A:$A,0)),"")

How To Output Column Letter (not Number) With A Formula

And if not, can a formula be written to output it without converting the spreadsheet to R1C1 style or using the lookup function that refers to a separate table within the spreadsheet?
