Compare And Replace ...

Aug 25, 2009

I have 2 Excel files that have 2 columns in each.

Product# and Price.

The Product#'s in the 1st sheet are in correct order and have outdated prices.

In the 2nd file the Product#'s are same but they cannot be sorted the same way as the 1st file. So I cannot just copy the column of updated prices from 2st one and paste it into the 1st.

So, my best bet would be to run a script or something that will get a Product# from 2nd file and find it in 1st, if it matches then copy the new price to the 1st file.

Compare And Replace ..

Apr 26, 2007

I've searched the board for something close to reverse-engineer but no luck. I'm looking for a macro that will:

Examine values in Sheet 1, column B
Compare them to values in Sheet 2, column A then...
wherever there's a match copy the the corresponding cell contents of Sheet 2, column B into the corresponding cell of Sheet 1, column A

What I'm trying to do is append the description of a 4-letter code (from a reference Sheet 2) beside where that code appears in Sheet 1.

There won't be a row-to-row correspondence in the match, i.e ABCD might be in (Sheet 1)B45 and (Sheet 2)A920...

Compare Rows On 2 Sheets And Replace

Mar 2, 2007

I'm trying to do is compare 4 columns on 2 sheets. I would like to go down in column "E" on sheet1 and find the exact one on column "A" on sheet2. Once these are equal I would compare F, G, H, on sheet1 with B, C, D on sheet2. If the these three columns are not the same I would like to copy from sheet2 B, C, D from sheet2 to F, G, H.

The problem I have is none of the rows of information will be in sequential order as well as we may not have a match. What I'm saying is row1 on sheet1 could be row1000 on sheet2. Attached is a small example. in the example rows 6, 11, 12, 16 and 19 would be the only changes on sheet1. My example does have the rows in sequential but that would almost never be the case for me....

Compare Columns And Replace Values Without Overwriting

Mar 14, 2013

I have 2 sheets similar to below :

apple pc
sony camera
apple laptop

sony television

I need to compare Column A from Sheet2 with Sheet1 and where the values match, only replace THOSE values in Column B of Sheet1 with those in Column B of Sheet2. Hence, after the replacement, Sheet1 should look like (value for apple remains unchanged).

apple pc
sony television
apple laptop

What would be a formula that would do it ?

Excel 2003 :: Find And Replace Missing The Ability To Replace Values?

Feb 5, 2009

This problem has come up fairly frequently lately, and I'm not sure how to fix it, or if this is by design...but in Excel 2003 I can't seem to do a "Find and Replace" based on the value of a cell. I can do a find, based on cell value, but the moment I change to the replace tab, the "values" and "comments" are missing from the "look in" dropdown.

I've only noticed this when I'm trying to replace on a filtered list, so I'm not sure if that is part of the issue.

Perhaps an alternative way of arriving at the same goal. Basically I have a worksheet with a number of filtered columns. They are filtered just right, using custom filtering, and so I do not want to undo the filters. In some columns I have formulas that are returning #VALUE! errors. I'd like to replace all of these cells with NA.

Find And Replace To Not Replace Characters Found As Wildcards?

Jul 2, 2013

I recently became owner of a spreadsheet with some issues, and I am trying to make it useful. Each row has a URL of a blog post, and I want to extract the date from it (which is present in each URL) while getting rid of the rest of the URL. I was able to get rid of everything up to the year (which comes first), but then the URL continues, for example, 2013/05/16/the-rest-of-the-url/ and I would like to just have 2013/05/16 remain.

I am trying to use find and replace with the find box reading 2013/??/??/*/ and replacing it with 2013/??/?? which effectively erases everything else in the url, but leaves ?? instead of the numbers. Is there any way to have it so that it keeps whatever was in the original box?

Using Replace Function To Replace ANY Date

May 22, 2013

I'm wanting to use Excel's built in replace function to replace ANY date with "Call:"

I'm not going to go into details about why, but I cannot use a code, as I only want to change them at specific times.

The dates are currently formatted as 12/09/2009. So I need to change the 12/09/2009 and any other date there may be to "call:" without having to go through every possible date.

Compare, Truncate, Compare Again, Write (VBA)

Mar 10, 2009

I have two ranges of numbers stored as text on two different sheets.
The first one is from product code and the second is from product category.
The problem is both ranges are of different lengths and I have to find out if a product from the right is part of a particular product category. Even if the length is different the first digits are indicative of the belonging of a code. For example 1234 and 12345 are “family”-their first 4 digits match.
Just to give you an example of what is desired:

Category____ Code
2200 ________22002
2323________ 232347

So, the loop should do the following:Compare the first string from the “Category” column to each and every entry on the right, if a match exists (we have no match here for 2200) write “ok” next to it.
Next trim one digit from the right from every string in the “Code” column.
Compare same first string from the “Category” column to each trimmed string from “Code” column (here we should have a match 2200=2200)
Write “ok” next to it
Now the loop goes to the second string from “Category” column and for this one we will have to trim 2 digits from the right of each string in “Code” column to achieve the result (2323=2323) and so on.

Replace Value And Add Row Below It

Mar 29, 2014

I have a large data file that needs a far amount of updates. Essentially what I am trying to do is take one value, lets say it is simply "ABC", and replace it with "ABC1" and - more importantly - add a row beneath it and in the cell directly below the original add a value of "ABC2". This example will happen multiple times throughout the file.

I'm afraid that other than manually going through the file and adding rows where needed I do not know a process to do this quickly. This will take many many hours based on the size of my file so I figured I would reach out to a community of much better excel users than I to see if there is something I am missing.

Replace The First Or The Last From String

Jun 24, 2009

I need a code which replaces the given letter or sign combination at the first or at the last position of a string. User should be able to chose from which end the replacement should be done, what should be replaced and in which column. Maybe throug a messagebox!

For example (1):
Column B:
[trn][m1][c blue]$ [/c] = Dollar. [/m][m2][c green]Currency of USA[/c][/m][/trn]
[trn][m1][c blue]€ [/c] = Euro. [/m][m2][c green]Currency of EU contries[/c][/m][/trn]

Result of replacing the first "[/c]" with "" should be:
[trn][m1][c blue]$ = Dollar. [/m][m2][c green]Currency of USA[/c][/m][/trn]
[trn][m1][c blue]€ = Euro. [/m][m2][c green]Currency of EU contries[/c][/m][/trn]

Result of replacing the last "[/c]" with "" should be:
[trn][m1][c blue]$ [/c] = Dollar. [/m][m2][c green]Currency of USA[/m][/trn]
[trn][m1][c blue]€ [/c] = Euro. [/m][m2][c green]Currency of EU contries[/m][/trn]
