Check Cells Are Correct Format And Contain Correct Data
Jan 26, 2014
We receive about 20 sales files of several hundred lines of data each day from various agencies. I want to create a macro / VBA code which checks that the data submitted is correct so that we can upload it into our database without import errors and / or having to manually check each line of data.
I envisage something like an output report:
Column A - Date - OK
Column B - Customer_Phone - Errors (Should be 11 digits)
Row 21 - Customer_Phone - Error (Not 11 digits)
Row 108 - Customer_Phone - Error (Contains letters)
Column C - Outcome - OK
Please correct and re-check.
I'm trying to create a formula that will added the correct amount in the correct cells, I have create a dunny sheet in trying to achieve this. If Cell B8:B11 = ABS or Dum that any points won should be added to Cell L8:L11 right now its adding it into K8:K11. If Cell B8:B11 = is Blank any player points should be added to cells K8:K11. I'm using this formula throughout cells K8:K28 =IF(J8>J25,1,IF(AND(J8<>0,J8=J25),0.5,0)) Any thing in red is incorrect anything in blue is what I'm trying to achieve.
We have a system that normally dumps our data in the format of column K, with all of the data in one column and the same spacing you see below in red. The problem is when the system is slow, we have to manually dump it, and when we manually dump it, it comes out spread out from column A to column I. For the macro to work without bugging out on me, it has to be in the same format as column K, with exactly the same spacing.
I have tried text to columns while importing, amongst other things, but have not had any luck. So in a nutshell I need to be able to make column A thru I, look just like column K with exactly the same spacing. The data dumps are different every day.
I have a strange feeling I will not get a reply on this question, because it is so strange, or that I failed to articulate it correctly....
Users copy and paste source data from a report into worksheet 1 each month. Data from last month is deleted and data for the current month copied into worksheet 1.
I am trying to write a formula within worksheet 1 to check that data for the current reporting period only is in worksheet 1. For example all data from last month's reporting period has been removed and the only data in worksheet 1 is the current reporting period.
Reporting period is shown in two columns Year and Period number (1 to 12).
I have a list of abbreviations in Sheet 2 and Names of Companies (Full name of Company and short name) in Sheet 1.
What I need to do is check if the abbreviation used in the Short Name Field in Sheet 1 is correct based on the given abbreviation list in Sheet 2.
here is the example:
Sheet 1: Fulll Name of Company Short name AMERIPRISE FINANCIAL, INC. Ameriprise Fin Sheet 2: Abbreviation List Full Version Abbreviation Academic Acad Bank Bk Financial Finl
in the abbreviation list the correct abbreviation for financial is Finl so the short name should have been "Ameriprise Finl" and NOT "Ameriprise Fin". I'd like the rows highlighted in yellow if it is incorrect.
I have a report that I pull that I pull fairly often that is in this format and shows which footage of products each store is getting (out of over 1800 stores)!
Above is the format that it comes back as. And here is a spreadsheet that shows what steps I take to find correct values in detail.
So each FTG has an ID# and Desc. The ID is in text format and each ID is seperated with a comma, no space. Description also. Date is seperate by a space and comma. Stores change footages a lot so I want to find out which footage is effective today (1/27/2014) For ex: Store 63 would have the 5ft effective right now because we are between 5/23/08 and 5/22/14. So each ID# and Ftg Description is in the same order as Date.
When I have hundreds of stores, it is difficult to go through and get each one (even with the way I've been doing it.) But my ultimate goal is to create a macro to put only the current footage ID#, Desc, and Date in Columns C,D,and E. I'm not sure even where to start with doing a macro.
I usually just find the store with most ftgs, count them, insert that many rows after ID and Description columns, then do a text to columns (comma, delimited), sort by 2nd date column (so they all come up top) and then manually go through them and delete unneeded columns once I have them all.
I have a question regarding Do While loops. I'm trying to write a do while loop to search through an array for a particular value and return the row number. This value is in the first column of the array and there are 211 of each value chronologically sorted. So, the first column from top to bottom reads 1,1,1,1..211 times, then 2,2,22,..211 times and so on. For this case, I want to return the first row where a particular value is found.
I have a spreadsheet which needs to display currency in the correct format dependant upon whether a contract is in English or German Law. Excel defaults currency format as €310,000.00 however in German this needs to be €310.000,00 i.e. with the decimal point and comma in opposite positions. Does anyone know what expression I can use to format it as the latter?
I have been trying to find an easier way to make sure that the email address that I have been given in a excel workbook are in the proper format before I try to use them. I have tried doing a google search on this subject but have not found the correct solution. I want to enter a function in column L that would use a regular expression for the email format and compare it to the email address in column J. If the results are true place a value of 1 in column K. If false place a value of 0 in column K.

I have a querytable running on my sql database. In the query I have a trimleft function because the numbers are stored with several proceeding blank spaces. When I execute the query through my macro, everything works fine, except I can't average or sum the results. They can be multiplied, divided, etc, but not averaged or summed (they just show as zero on summing, which makes the average DIV/0). The really strange part is that if I select a number and go to the formula bar and hit delete at the beginning of the number (which actually deletes nothing), the number is suddenly capable of actually performing as a number. I assume this has something to do with how the querytable is returning my results, but does anyone have an idea for a workaround for this issue?
I have several sources of information for client files. the number format includes a reference number and a month, eg 123/11, 456/02. In some cases, the numbers may be presented including the company initials, eg ABC/00123/11. I want to make sure all numbers on all sources are the same as I am using Vlookup and this reference no to copy information from one source to another. Sometimes when I change the format Excel sees this as a date, eg 11/11 is 11-Nov, and in some cases Excel sees a fraction, eg 123/11 is 123 11ths or 123 divided by 11.
I can easily take out the reference no with a find and replace FIND ABC/ replace with . But this often results in a number with leading zeroes, eg ABC/0123/06 will leave 0123/06.
In cell n2 I get: 41526415274156741568481569 This is the excel number for the above dates, but I need it to look like:
Sep. 9 - 10, 2013, Oct. 20 - 22, 2013
I also need it to be able to isolate single dates for example if the date in cell l5 was 10/5/2013 instead of 10/20/2013 then I would want n2 to look like Sep. 9 - 10, 2013, Oct. 5, 2013, Oct. 21 - 22, 2013. but my formula currently only changes that number in the string from 41567 to 41552.
The reason I need this is because this information is part of a identifier and also maybe used in reports, the people reading the reports won't know this long number is actually dates and won't be able to read them if they did.
Also the cells L3 - L7 data depends on cell l2, 1 = one date entered into cell l3, 2 = two dates, one in cell l3, the next in cell l4, and so on for up to five total days that may or may not be consecutive. Also, it seems to work as is, but only for one day.
I have the following code to ensure user inputs date in correct format, but on test it doesn't capture if they enter 11.12.08 (Which we have had people do before), if that is entered the textbox returns 30/12/99, is there a way I can prevent this?
Private Sub txtStartDate_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean) 'Checks Start Date is in correct date format If IsDate(txtStartDate.Value) Then txtStartDate.Value = Format(DateValue(txtStartDate.Value), "dd/mm/yy") Else MsgBox "Please enter a valid date format." Cancel = True End If End Sub
I have a form on which I select a date (using a calendar form) and on the form it works perfectly. The date is in the correct dd/mm/yyyy format for example (03/04/2013 - 3rd April 2013), I then insert this date into a worksheet and it comes out in the correct format, but it is actually turning the dates around so where it should be putting 3rd of April (03/04/2013), it's inserting 4th March (04/03/2013) instead. It looks very much like the form sees the date in dd/mm/yyyy format and the worksheet when taking the data from the form thinks it in US format (mm/dd/yyyy).
I have attached a 97-2003 .xls file with data for multiple store locations on sheet 1, and the desired result on sheet 2. I am actually using excel 2007, but I dont think I need any special features that it provides.
I will try to explain the issue here without opening the attachment.
I need identifying correct title and corresponding company name. For this I need a UDF which looks for first occurrence of title having event or marketing or meeting word in data and if found the remove other titles and company names already separated with "/".

I trying to populate cells with a correlation function using VBA, I have set up dynamic references/arguments for the fuction to take on however I just can't get it to work. Currently instead of populating the formula into the cell, it's just populates it as a string based on what's entered below =correl(Ystart &":"& yend, xstart&'":"'& xend").
FYI - The correl function takes on two ranges,. I've predefined these below.
The code below works correctly on certain sheets. The code is supposed to loop through worksheets in an array, calculate the percent change from 1990 to 2012 and from 2005 to 2012, and put the calculations on the 4th and 5th row from the last non-empty row, respectively. All the sheets are identical except for 3. The sheets that are different only have a different number of years of data. For some reason this causes the macro to put the percent change calculations in random rows below the correct location. Also, the macro doesn't work correctly on one of the identical sheets.
Example of how the macro runs correctly on an identical worksheet : correct.gif
Example of how the macro runs incorrectly on one of the 3 sheets that are not identical : incorrect.gif
I have a spreadsheet that has been sent to multiple clients. I have discovered an error in a few of the cells:
1. a link between two cells is broken so the correct number is not showing up in the cell. It is a simple formula ie: =A15, that I either forgot to put in or deleted in a fit of madness. It is in the same cell on the same worksheet in the workbook.
2. A hidden column on a worksheet has a formula that sums a range of cells. I have discovered that this range of cells is wrong. This error is duplicated on a number of worksheets in the workbook. The problem is that the error is in the same column in each worksheet but not in the same row.
Each worksheet is password protected. This is done through VBA code so the passwords won't be a problem.
The clients have already started working on the spreadsheet that I sent them and I want to send them a "fix" so that the correct formula will just update the spreadsheet they already have rather than me sending a completly new one and them having to start from scratch.
I had this wonderful spreadsheet set up with columns that appear and disappear and formulas galore so that the client didn't have to do to much work and then I find these errors after it has been sent. My testers let me down but that's life.
What's odd is that if I create the formulas above independent of the specific formula data (O5, P5, and Q5) and just type in numbers, those formulas do exactly what they should. Can I not compare data returned though formula calculations?
