## Change Column Letter Into A Column Number

Sep 12, 2007

I need code to change a letter such as A into a column number i.e 1. Everything i can find is to do with changing column numbers into letters, surely you can do it the other weay round aswell? So when the macro is given the letter AA it returns the column number as 27 etc, but i need it as a defined variable such as "i = column number" so i can use this information further on in my code.

## VLookup To Find The Customer And The Dates And Then Bring Me Back An Asterisk In A Separate Column

Jul 27, 2007

I have 2 spreadsheets. One is a promotion calendar that lists the dates that promotions on a certain product runs. The other is a shipment grid of shipments of that product to the customer.

I want VLookup to find the customer and the dates and then bring me back an asterisk in a separate column to show me that that certain week that product was delivered was a promotion week. The problem I have is using Vlookup to lookup 2 things at once (and if they match to the promotion calendar) and return me an asterisk.

Here is my formula now:

=IF(VLOOKUP(J2&" "&L2,'East Data'!M:AU,2,FALSE),"*",0)

J2 is the customer name
L2 is the week
"East Data" is the spreadsheet with all of the promotions and customers.

## 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)),"")

## Keyboard Shortcut To Select Column By The Column Letter?

Jul 24, 2014

I know that this could be a stupid question, but was wondering if it could be possible. I would like to select a column by a keyboard shortcut. If I would press a key combination adding the letter of a column as example F, it would select the whole column. I was trying to search for this in google, but no luck.

## Converting A Column Number Into A Column Letter

Mar 9, 2007

I have a variable, ColumnX. I want to use VBA to generate some formula referencing ColumnX. For example: I want to sum the values in A1 to A10. ColumnX has been set to "1" which is the number of column A.

Range("A11")= "=sum("A1:" & ColumnX & "10)"

Obviously the above code doesn't work because I'm putting a number where VBA expects a letter. How can I rewrite my code so that A11 will entered with formula that sums A1 to A10?

## Code Does Not Work When Change Column Value A To D

May 7, 2012

I have a macro that runs through a list and stores elements to an array. If the element is not found in my list, it adds to the next available row and adds the value from the array to that cell. Right now, I am searching in column d but am storing the value of column a at that location. When I switch the reference to column D, the value is not inserted into my new list.

Here is my current code:

Code:
Sub Arraytest()
Dim arr As Variant, lastrow As Long, i As Long, f As Long, l As Long, lastrow2 As Long, insertrow As Long

[Code].....

Why does the code not work properly when I switch to D? The value is storing correctly in the array. I test this by the last line of the code and it executes properly.

## 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.

## Find A Group Of Unique Rows- Find Non-zero Value In A Column - Fill Column With That Value?

May 27, 2014

There are groups of similar ID numbers in Column J. For a group of similar ID numbers in consecutive rows there is only one row that has a number greater than 0 in its Column L cell and the rest of the cells of Column L for that set of similar IDs is filled with 0s.

First for that unique ID group I need to find out which row is it that has a value greater than zero in its Column L cell.

Then I need to use that value to fill the rest of the 0s in Column L corresponding to that set of Unique IDs.

The process continues with identifying similar IDs in Column J and this time doing the same thing for their Column M. I have attached a sample file that shows the data and how the results need to look like.

## VBA Code To Find Date In Column A And Enter Data In Cells On Same Row

Dec 26, 2013

I have a spreadsheet where a date is entered in column A with data in B-F. I am trying to write code to look in column A for a specific date and enter additional data into columns G-L on the same row. It needs to be able to skip the rows that are blank. So I have the dates of 12/1, 12/2 and 12/3 in column A rows 1,2 and 3 and I want to enter data for 12/2 on row 2 skipping the blank cells in row 1 for 12/1. Here is the code I have below.

VB:

Private Sub CBSecure_Click()
Dim my_name As String
Dim r As Variant
Dim l As Long
sFind = DockDoorCal.Value
If Trim(sFind) = "" Then Exit Sub

## Find Text/Value & Use Found Cell, Row, Column In Macro Code

May 10, 2008

I am trying to clean up and simplify my macros by compartmentalizing frequently repeated commands. I like to search for text in column headings and define the cell containing it as a range that I can later use .column or .row commands on, so my macros are a bit more flexible. The code I currently use for this is

Dim XColumn As Range ‘the cell containing the text “X”
Cells.Select
Selection.Find(What:="X", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
Set XColumn = ActiveCell

I would like to be able to create a Macro (possibly name FindSetCell()) that will accept arguments and achieve the results of the above code in other macros
I think the command might look something like FindSetCell(“text to be searched for”,”name of newly Defined Range”) But I have not figured out how to code it

## Find Rows W/same Value In Column A And B And Offset Column C To Next Available Column

Aug 3, 2006

I need to combine rows that have the same value in column a and column b to the same row by offsetting column c to the next available column. For example, I would like the first 6 rows of the provided sample to appear like this.

0014B22<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities
0014B23<@28>Coursey<@28>Ogles<@28>Shelocta

Sometimes the values are the same in column c, sometimes they are different. I do not want to delete duplicate rows where they are the same. Sometimes there are 2 rows that have the same values in column a and column b, other times there may be 3 or even 4 rows with the same values in column a and column b. Regardless, I would like the values in column c combined on the same row in the next available column. It would be nice if the duplicate column a and column b rows (with a null column c cell) were then removed, but I could do that in the next step.

0014B22<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities
0014B22<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities
0014B22<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities
0014B23<@28>Coursey
0014B23<@28>Ogles
0014B23<@28>Shelocta
0014B24<@33><i>Available water capacity:<p> High (about 11.5 inches)
0014B24<@33><i>Available water capacity:<p> Very low (about 2.9 inches)
0014B24<@33><i>Available water capacity:<p> High (about 9.0 inches)
0014B25<@33><i>Slowest saturated hydraulic conductivity:<p> Moderately high (about 0.57 in/hr)

0014B26<@33><i>Depth class:<p> Very deep (more than 60 inches)
0014B26<@33><i>Depth class:<p> Very deep (more than 60 inches)
0014B27<@33><i>Depth to root-restrictive feature:<p> More than 60 inches

## Subtracting From Column Letter

Is it possible to subtract a number from a column letter? I'm trying to create a sheet that does some helpful calculations. In order for me to finish it without a macro i need to be able to subtract a number in a cell from a column letter. Example F-5=A, The end i'm trying to achieve is to get a sum range to move left and right in this data set based on that number.

## How To Check For A Particular Letter In A Column

Jun 5, 2009

Basically, I need to be able to determine whether a particular letter is stored with another letter in the 'CG column' of the attached spreadheet.

The criteria is this:

1. Letter J can be present as long as there is no other letter in that column.
2. Letter B and D cannot be together in the column, but B can be with any other letter and likewise for D.

Basically, I could have a load of Js in the CG column and that would be fine. If another letter was with those Js, I need a warning box. I could have a B,H,S,T etc.....and that would be fine, but as soon as a D is entered, I need a warning. Similarly, if I had D,H,I,U,T etc......that would be fine too, but as soon as a B is entered, I need a warning again.
