Only Display Value If Combination In Two Columns Matches Combination In Two Other Columns

Jul 12, 2012

I have a formula that I can't get to paste successfully in the forum - it keeps getting cut off?!? ... but I think I can probably simplify my explanation to get the answer I want anyway.

I need to only show the value from AUS!$H$2:$H$17 if the C2 & D2 combination are the same as the AUS!$B$2:AUS!$B$17 & $AUS!$C$2:AUS!$C$17 combination.

I am trying to create a cell so when I put in a symbol (H10), it automatically gives me the quote. So I split up the code and then concatenated it as follows:

Identify Minimum Combination Of Columns Which Makes Row Unique?

Nov 20, 2013

I have a (phylogenetic) matrix with a species in each row, and morphological character in each column, scored as 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 for each different species, so something like the following but much bigger:

Character 1 Character 2 Character 3
Species A 1 0 1
Species B 3 2 2
Species C 1 2 0

I want to identify the minimum combination of different columns (i.e. their values, but also which columns) that make a particular row unique.

Excel 2010 :: How To Make Concatenate To Generate A Text String Using Custom Formatted Value Of A Cell

May 2, 2014

I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet that I am using to save several numbers all in the same column. These numbers can range from the several thousands up to billions. The formatting I am using for these numbers is Number (using 1000s separator).


I am also using the spreadsheet to generate a text string for each of the numbers. I don't want the text string to show the number as it is, I want to shorten the number by only showing the first few digits followed by a "B" for billion, "M" for million, or "K" for thousand. For example, in the text string I want to show 1,600,000 as 1.6B.

In order to shorten the number I use the cell in the column to the right of each number. This cell uses the following custom formatting (which I found by doing a Google search): [>999999999.999]#.0,,,"B";[>999999.999]#,,"M";#,"K";


As you can see the formatting is quite complex (at least for me it is) but it does what I want it to do.

Here is a screenshot of what the original and custom formatted cells look like:


As you can see the custom formatting works and does exactly what I wan

The next column (after the custom formatted number) is where I put the generated text string for each of the numbers. As I stated above, I want the generated text to use the shortened version of the number (e.g. 1.6B).

To generate the text I use the CONCATENATE function with a reference to the cell containing the shortened number as one of the arguments. For example:


Where B1 is the custom formatted cell.

The problem I am running into is, the text that gets generated doesn't show the shortened format of the number, it shows the full number. Here is a screenshot demonstrating what is happening:


As you can see the generated text is "SOME STRING 1600000000". This is not what I want. I want the generated text to be "SOME STRING 1.6B".

I think I understand what's going on. When the CONCATENATE function references a cell it takes the actual value of the cell and ignores any formatting. (I suppose formatting is just the way you see the data, not how underlying functions receive the data.)

My question is, how can I re-write the CONCATENATE function (or use another function, etc. available to me) to use the formatted version of the cell?

*UPDATE* I have attached my spreadsheet as an attachment to this post (tackyjan_excelforums.xlsx). Please note that it was created and saved using Excel 2010.

IF Formula - Column To Show Text Value Dependent On Combination Of Three Columns

May 12, 2014

I have three columns that each have a drop down of text options; column A has three options, column B has three options and column C has two options. I want to have a fourth column that will show a text value dependent on the combination of the three columns.

It ends up being 18 variations so my IF formula just won't compute.

This is basically the format I have and works for a few values then just chucks up an error when I extend it to all 18 variations:

IF(AND(A1="text",B1="text2",C1="text3"),"show this text",
IF(AND(B1="other",B1="other2",C1="other3"),"then show this", ) etc etc

Any way I can get this to work for all 18 possible outcomes??

Concatenate 2 Columns & Delete Orginal Columns

Sep 25, 2007

I had wanted to go through my spreadsheet and concatenate two columns (A & B)into one (A) then delete the duplicate column (B), but have found no way to do that. Now I am trying to search then insert a column prior to the other two, concatenate the data into the new column then delete the columns. I am specifically having a problem with my Range statement and can't figure out how to activate it or discern it after using the Find command.

Sub GroupGender()
Cells.Find(What:="Group", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:= _
xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, MatchCase:=False _
, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
Selection.EntireColumn.Insert Shift:=xlToRight
With Range("a1", Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp))
.Offset(0, 0) = "=RC[1] & "" "" & RC[2]"
.Offset(0, 2) = .Offset(4, 2).Value
End With
Selection.Replace What:="Group Sex", Replacement:="Grp/Sx", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _

How To Concatenate Columns

As we know, a simple concatenate will work. But my columns are not limited and not easily countable. In my real scenario for some of the rows, data exist from column "A" till column "IB". So, I need to first identify the column data exist in each row and then to implement the concatenate function.

Concatenate Two Columns Of Text

Dec 25, 2008

In Excel 2007 I want to concatenate two columns of text. In Column A all the cells contain a single statement that I want to prefix the statements in the cells of column B (the statements in column B differ from cell to cell) I have used the formula =A1&" "&B1 and this is fine for that row, when I use the fill handle and pull it down the page the formula changes accordingly i.e.=A2&" "&B2, =A3&" "&B3 etc. But when I make the text appear using control+ I only get the concatenation of the first row repeated all the way down, irrespective of the contents of other cells in Column B.

Concatenate Multiple Columns With Spaces

I've searched quite a few times for Concatenating Multiple Columns and ones for Concatenating with Spaces.

I've found solutions that say use

=concatenate(A1, " ", B1)

or the VBA equivalent

I have at least 15-20 columns which I wish to concatenate.

Is there an easier way than to type for all 15 columns?

=concatenate(A1," ", B1," ", C1,....)

Also, the number of columns of each row vary

Concatenate With Loop Through 2 Columns Of Information

May 28, 2014

I have a list of names with blank cells in Column A cell 2.

I want the programme to scroll through this column until it finds a name, when it does I want it to look in cell offset(1, 1), in this case B3 to see if there is a number. I want this number to be moved to offset (0, 1) AND any subsequent numbers below it until the next blank cell in that column (B).

In the attached image cell B2 will contain all numbers in cells B3:B9 with a / between them. Cell B10 will have number from B11 and B12 will have B13:B15. If there is no number it will just continue to the next name in column A. My rough code below delivered the first number only in the relevant cell and I'm not clever enough to get it right. It does not have to be super slick as it's for one time use.

I need numbers in column B cleared as they are concatenated into the single cell.

Concatenate Columns Into File Path

Nov 15, 2006

I am creating an excel file for a mail merge following this process. I need to take the three columns below and enter the path to the corresponding chart. I have all the charts created in a directory. The naming convention for all of the files is XX-XX-XX.gif. The X's represent the numbers below without the decimal places. Therefore the example below would be 44-43-27.gif. Is there anyway to create a formula to drag down instead of entering the filename's manually? In the end, I want to have the full file path as shown in the XLS.

q_3_abc q_3_teamq_3_yscore
4.4 4.3 2.7

I have 700+ rows to do this for, therefore I want a formula or VBA solution instead of the manual donkey work.

Concatenate (Join) Cells Across Columns

Feb 9, 2008

I have a marco that works perfects to Concatenate (join) all of the cells in Column A. However, I want to seperately join all of the cells in each column. So I wanted to the Concatenate of Column B to go in B1, Column C to go in C1, etc (or until there is no data in a column). I think there is a way to change this into a loop, but I don't know how. Below is the macro I have now.

Sub ConcatenateAll()
Dim x As String, rng As Range, cel As Range
With ActiveSheet
Set rng = .Range("A2:A300")
For Each cel In rng
x = x & cel.Value
.Range("A1").Value = x

SUMIF - Trim And Concatenate 2 Sets Of 2 Columns Giving Answer In Another Column

Jun 22, 2008

I have two sets of two columns which contain numbers as text with trailing spaces and I want to concatenate column A and B and concatenate column F and G, and then compare them, and sumif value in column I if they are the same - giving the answer in the same row as the matching data in column A and B.. but in column J.

Iíve seen sum product and havenít been able to get it to work at all. I have been adding the trim() function in around the column references to see if that would work but am failingÖ

A = 2000 text
B = 1234 text

F = 2000 trailing spaces, text
G = 1234 trailing spaces, text

I = 10,000

Answer in column J

I want 20001234 = 20001234 = 10,000 for the whole column.

I don't want to change the original data as its externally sourced and used for other links etc.. This would save a few hours a week if i ( more correctly, you ) could get this to work.
