# Computing With Last 252 Rows Of Varying Length Column

Nov 26, 2009

Using Excel 2003, Column E has a varying and unpredictable number of rows, which only the final 252 rows are of significance. I need to compute the following formulas, here written in English as I can't determine the proper terminology to accomplish this task in Excel:

Final Row with a number in Column E/average (final 252 rows with numbers in column E)+

Final Row with a number in Column E/average (final 126 rows with numbers in column E)+

Final Row with a number in Column E/average (final 63 rows with numbers in column E)

Once again, what makes this not straightforward for me is the column may have wildly varying numbers of rows.

## Combine Rows Of Varying Length And Varying Number Of Occurrences

Jun 28, 2012

There are 11,000 rows and 4,000 are unique. The goal is to merge the data down to the 4,000 records. Each of the unique entries shows up 1 to 15 times.

In trying to solve this, I wonder if I should break this down into the different # of occurances and implement specific solutions. e.g., There are

5700 entries that show up 2x
504 that show up 3x
24 that show up 12x

## SUMIF- Column Of Contract Numbers Of Varying Length

Mar 27, 2009

I have a column of contract numbers of varying length. I want to run a sumif of all of the values on my reference sheet that have the contract number beginning with the contract number in my listing. All of the the contract values in my reference sheet are very long. Since the numbers I am working with vary in length, i don't know how to match this string in the sumif function

I want something like this

=SUMIF('Reference Sheet!\$A\$5:\$A\$13410,LEFT("", LEN('Select Contracts'!\$C6))='Select Contracts'!\$C6,'FINALIZED DATA'!\$H\$5:\$H\$13410)

Is there a way to refer to the range in the sumif function,

## Creating Macro To Calculate Columns With Varying Length

May 2, 2012

I have a column of data where the seperate entities are divided by blank rows. for example: i need to calculate sum(G3:G15) then skip the blank row (G16) and calculate the next group, say sum(G17:G50) and export that import to a new worksheet.

The issue is that the column lengths vary from day to day so the blank rows will not be in the same position.

## Bring Data From Sheets Of Varying Length To One Main Sheet

Apr 17, 2012

I have a workbook with several sheets of varying length (amount of columns). The length of each sheet changes every week. I want particular data from the sheets to come together on one sheet in as organized a fashion as is possible. I'm currently losing my mind copying and pasting every week when I need to update the thing.

## Extract Two Separate Numbers Of Varying Length From Text Field

May 24, 2014

a formula to extract the numbers into two separate fields. The text may vary in length and the numbers vary in length also from 1 digit to 2,000,000.

Data in A1 is as follows:-

## Depending On Value Of One Cell - Pull A Set Of Data From Another Page Varying Length / Width

Aug 12, 2014

I have drop drown menus that allow you to select 1 of 3 choices and based on those a second set which lists the options for the first three (subset). Now depending on the second value I need to pull a set of x y coordinates that can be of varying length. '

Example

Drop down menu 1 1560, 1669, 1554. Drop down menu 2 1560-1,2,3,4 1669-a,b,c,d. This has been done now lets say I select 1560-1. I need the following to be pulled from a list, the data is a block.

1.00 1.543
1.23 -1.25
0.54 -2.75

This can be of any length.

## Transpose Macro Varying Rows From 1 Column

Aug 22, 2009

I've trawled a few forums for a while now trying to find a macro that matches my specifications, or one I can adapt but so far have been unsuccessful, so here goes:

I have one column of data (col. A) of customer names and addresses each with an empty row in between them. The lines of data relating to each customer vary from 6 rows to 14 rows, then an empty row, then the next customer and so on - for several thousand rows.

I am wanting to create a macro that will transpose each customer to either their own row in sheet2, or to column B and then delete column A at the end.

All I can find is macros for a specific number of rows rather than varying. One way would be to have a code that 'pads' out those customers with fewer than 14 lines by inserting rows to make them 14, and then a code to transpose 15 rows at a time.

## Summing/averaging A Column Of Varying Number Of Rows

May 18, 2007

how to code VB to where when data is sorted a formula can be placed at the bottom a column to sum or average the above data?

I have tried relational positioning e.g

each time a row is created, integer n5 = n5 + 1

Application.CutCopyMode = False
ActiveCell.Offset(rowoffset:=1, columnOffset:=12).Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=sum(r[" - " & n5]c:r[-1]c)"
ActiveCell.Offset(rowoffset:=0, columnOffset:=7).Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=average(r[" - " & n5]c:r[-1]c)"
Application.CutCopyMode = False
n5 = 0

Where n5 is augmented each time a row is created then set to 0 to count the next list

## Converting Different Length Rows Into Single Column

Jul 29, 2014

I have a table in excel in which every line has as many values as the days of the month (e.g. 31 values first row, 28 the second..) and it goes from January 1948 to July 2014. So it ends up having around 800 rows.

I need to put all of those into a column, but it gets hard because the rows have different lengths. I have seen in this forum some solutions that apply well when the table is regular, but I'm stuck in trying to get a solution for when it's not. I have tried to record a macro using TRANSPOSE, but then I cannot change the cells into this formula in the editor in order to create a loop.

I also have to consider leap years.

## Pull Varying Length Text From Cell Text

Jul 2, 2007

I need to find text within middle of a string.
Character before required text is say AAA
Character after required text is say BBB
Text required can vary in length.
Extract text and place in another column.

All text in a single column, required text not in every line. but
does repeat.

## Varying Validation Drop-downs Based On Varying Cell Values

Aug 7, 2013

I am attempting to have cells in Column 'U' deliver different drop-down menus based on the corresponding value in column 'D'. I have created 7 named lists:

List_117G
List_152
List_JMET
List_XBAND
List_PACWIND
List_VORTEX
List_ROVER

Those lists will be called up based on 7 values in column “D”:
“G”
“152”
“J”
“X”
“D/E”
“V”
“R”

So far I have only been able to get this to work for the first category “G”. When I change the value of column “D” from “G” to “152” I no longer get a drop-down. Here is the formula I am using in the List function of validation.

=IF(D6="G",List_117G,IF(D6="152",List_152,IF(D6="J",List_JMET,IF(D6="X",List_XBAND,
IF(D6="D/E",List_PACWIND,IF(D6="V",List_VORTEX,IF(D6="R",List_ROVER,)))))))

## VBA - Call Macros With Varying Names And On Varying Modules

Oct 2, 2013

I want to call a macro with a varying name that is within a module with the same name.

I have a module called Test1 and within this, a macro name called test1
I have a module called Test2 and within this, a macro name called test2
etc

On another module called Test8 (with the macro called Test8), this Test8 macro will call either Test1 or Test2 or Test3 etc depending on what I choose in an excel spreadsheet. So on sheet1, cell A1, there is a drop down with the options Test1 or Test2 or Test3 etc.

The following works to run the macro test1 from module test1 (when it does not vary i.e. i physically put in the name of the macro myself):

Sub Test3()
Test1.Test1
End Sub

The following works to run the macro test2 from module test2 (when it does not vary i.e. i physically put in the name of the macro myself):

Sub Test3()
Test2.Test2
End Sub
etc

However, if I try it so that the calling of the macro varies as below , it does not work:

Sub Test3()
MacroToCall = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Value
MacroToCall.MacroToCall
End Sub

## Selecting Varying Number Of Rows

Dec 11, 2007

I need to create a line of VBA code to have the macro select several rows to be cut and moved. The problem is, at this stage of the macro,the number of rows vary. Could be 1, could be twenty. I have established DD as the Dim for the number of rows, but I am not sure how to write the command so that 1 through DD are selected, cut, and moved. I may be having a senior moment, but I can't think of how to couch the term.

## Linking Rows With Varying Increments

May 5, 2006

I have a set of number in worksheet IN:

A B C D E Columns

## Macro For Rows Of Varying Lengths

Jul 13, 2007

I paste in information in Columns A-E with varying lengths for each report that I need to generate (They generally range anywhere from 10-500 rows). I have formulas already in place in the first row of Columns F-L that need to be copied down as far as columns A-E go. I recorded a macro for this when I try to run the macro for another report with more or less row entries it copies down as far as the original recording was set. How do I make it so the rows will copy down just as many as I need and not some arbitrary number of rows? This is my first post so if any clarification is needed that's no problem.

## Macro, Autofill On Varying Numbers Of Rows

Jan 13, 2003

I am putting together a macro to import a CSV file onto excel. I will be manipulating columns of data (concatinating some, dividing by 100 etc.)

What I am having trouble with is that each file imported will have different number of rows.
I tried, in recording a macro, to use autofill (entered formula and double-click fill handle to drop the fourmula into each cell) hoping this would show me how to do it but alas, it just coded the range as the starting and stopping cells (didn't show a count formula or some such.

## Macro To Sum Or Subtotal Ranges Of Varying Lengths In A Column

May 1, 2014

I've reached a point in this macro where I'm stuck with NO clue how to achieve this, or even whether it can be done. In the Before sheet below, I need to bold the cells in H & I if the word "Total" is in G. I could probably manage that part, but here's the weird part: I need to add a formula to H & I of each row with "Total" in G to sum the numbers above it, from the previous total down to the current total. But there's no telling how long each range might be on a given report; from 1 row up to 8 rows.

THEN, in the second row below the end of columns H & I, I need to put a formula totalling all of the preceding Totals

I wonder if there might be a way to tell it to put a formula in H by each cell that has "Total" in G, with the formula summing or subtotalling everything from the cell in H that has data in F to the cell just above the "Total".

## Shorten String Length If Exceeds 31 Characters (max Sheet Name Length)

Mar 27, 2014

I've set up a filing system which saves sheets/ workbooks based on the value of a cell - Range("B1") Everything works great apart from when ThisFile String length exceeds 31 characters which you may know is the max useable character length for a sheet name - I had no idea! 8-0

Is there a way i can check if string length exceeds 31 characters then, if it does, shorten it to 31 characters?

## Give Cell A Value Based On Length Of Row (variable Row Length)

Jan 9, 2010

My worksheet contains data with the reaction times on a psychological test. Each respondent in the test has 280 rows in my excel sheet.

The 'perfect' length of the row, is from A to M. When an error is made in the test, the length of the row will increase. So the error length can be A to AA.

For me it is important to analyse the error. So I would like to give a perfect row length, the value 1, and an error row length a value 2.

So, in conclusion:

If:
Cell length = A1 - M1? --> Copy A1 B1 C1 (A B Cof that row) to Sheet3, and give D1 in sheet 3 the value 1

Cell length >= A1 - M1? --> Copy A1 B1 C1 (A B C of that row) to Sheet3, and give D1 in sheet 3 the value 2

## Macro Code To Average Multiple List Of Varying Column Ranges

Apr 4, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that has two different data sources (i.e., A and B). The amounts of these data sources (i.e., the number of columns) varies from sheet to sheet. I have to calculate the averages of these data sources independently and together. Because this data is spread across twenty or more spreadsheets, these calculations can be time-consuming. I want to do the following:
1. Locate the last occurrence of the first data source "A" in row and then insert a column after that cell.
2. In that cell, I want to get the average of each data source for each row of data (i.e., there are always 19 rows of data).
I want to do the same two steps for the second data source "B". Then, I want to insert a column after the "B" average and this column will be used to get an average of each row of data from A and B together. Please keep in mind that the number of data sources for A and B varies from sheet to sheet.
So far, I am working on code to try to " find" the text in a range (i.e., find the last instance of "A"), but I cannot figure out how to get it to get it to stop at the last occurrence and then insert a column. I have some ideas about how to calculate the average, but any of yours are much appreciated.
Also, the row with the type of data (i.e., A or B) is named because this function is part of a larger macro. Therefore, it is relatively easy to get to it.
I have attached a version of the file that displays how I want it to look.
The code I have thus far is:

Cells.Find(What:=A, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt _
:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _
False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

## SUM A Column With Unknown Length

Jun 26, 2012

Trying to sum up a column that has an unknown length. This is a canned Excel form that is saved within a software system and is used to create customized documents. Usually, I would enter the table name.field name in a cell to pull the data from various parts of the system.

In this case, that data resides in AA234 of my customized Excel sheet. When the user retrieves this doc from the system, the data could run several rows, starting from AA30 to AA255. So, in my "Total" cell, I've entered =SUM(AA1:AA255), so it will just add up whatever is in the column, regardless of how long it runs upon document generation. When I try to pull the document, I get "=SUM(#REF!)" in that field instead.

## Computing Annual Maxima

Apr 4, 2009

I have daily streamflow data for a large number of years. One column is the date and the second column is the streamflow value. I want to compute the maximum value and the 3-day maximum (largest average value for any consecutive 3-day period)for each water year (starts on October 1 and ends on Sept 30). Of course the number of days each year varies by one during leap years.

## Computing Commission Formula

May 11, 2007

determining a formula to compute a sales commission.

Here is a sales scenario.

A \$25 commission will be paid on sales between \$50 to \$150.
A \$50 commission will be paid on sales between \$151 to \$300
A \$75 commission will be paid on sales between \$301 to \$600

The sales person will enter the sale amount into column B. Column C should compute the total commission for multilple sales.

Example:

Column A Column B
Sales Commission
\$50 \$150 (which is the comm. for the combined sales)
\$175
\$360

## Concatenate Varying Numbers Of Cells Based On Duplicates Found In Separate Column

Jul 25, 2011

I need to concatenate varying numbers of cells based on duplicates found in a separate column, but I'm not sure how to approach it. I have 41,000+ rows of data, so I have to find a formula.

Example:

1AB2Denton, PaulFB357D4D3OwensTest, MarcyFB539F934Brennan,
JosephFB539F935Bowser, AmyFB539F936LaRock, ChuckFB667D3B

Based on duplicates in column B, I want to combine the data in column A into one cell. The duplicates in column B could be only 2, or could be 20+.

## Format A Range Of Cells, Columns And Rows Will Vary In Length

Jun 16, 2009

I created a macro on an Excel spreadsheet:

Sub Macro1()

Range("C11:D19").Select
Selection.NumberFormat = "\$#,##0.00_);(\$#,##0.00)"
Range("E5:E20").Select
Selection.NumberFormat = "0.00%"
Range("D24:E43").Select
Selection.NumberFormat = "\$#,##0.00_);(\$#,##0.00)"
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=24
Range("D58:E339").Select
Selection.NumberFormat = "\$#,##0.00_);(\$#,##0.00)"
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=57

End Sub

When the macro is run, it works with the exact amount of data that I've entered.

However, because I have specified a specific range, if I add a row or column of data to the spreadsheet and run the macro again, it throws the whole thing off (certain cells get formatted when they shouldn't and others aren't formatted)

How do I tell the macro to look in the spreadsheet for varying ranges of data and format those cells?

## Edit Length Based On Other Column

Oct 28, 2011

I have two columns, one with an account number (call it A) and another with a vendor id (call it B). I need the length of the number in column A to be truncated to 10 characters by just deleting any additional characters after 10. That should be based on whether or not the corresponding cell in column B equals the following number "147212336". Right now, my code edits the ENTIRE column A, not just the cell in the same row.

I know it's because I'm using a "FOR EACH CELL" argument but I don't what else would work.

Code:
Set acctlengthrange = Range("N2", Cells(LastRowB, "N"))
Set dplrange = Range("P2", Cells(LastRowB, "P"))
With dplrange
If cell.Value = "147212336" Then
For Each cell In acctlengthrange
cell.Value = Left(cell.Value, 10)
Next
End If
Next

## Selecting Range 6 X The Length Of Another Column?

May 15, 2012

I have a worksheet which already has some built in formulas which take the data in columns V and W, and use them to build other coding in column P. The trick is that the coding created in column P will be six times as long as the source data in columns V and W.

I.e., a single row containing "Sample1" and "Sample 2" in columns V and W respectively create the six following rows in column P:

Row 1:
Row 2: TMUnknown
Row 3: tested1
Row 4: Sample1
Row 5: Sample2
Row 6:

I want to be able to select the accurate length of Column P, which should be 6x as long as columns V or W. Any dynamic way to do this? (Since the amount of data pasted into columns V and W will change each time I use this worksheet.) I know how to select set ranges, but not how to adjust them as multiples of the length of another column

## Select Column Of Unknown Length Using VBA

Jul 14, 2014

I have a column that begins in the same place all of the time (Cell C6) however the length of this column can vary. How can I copy the column using VBA?
