# Conditional Rank Based On Whether A Criteria Cell Includes A Specific Text String

May 8, 2009

I'm racking my brains as to how I can structure a formula to conditionally rank a value in an array against only those values in the array whose corresponding criteria cell includes a specific letter.

So for example I have a list of 12 values, say 126; 239; 0; 171; 162; 157; 130; 199; 122; 153; 0; 15.
Each of those values corresponds to a heading, say: CDE; DFE; FGE; DFE; ERD; DEA; BDF; DFB; CDE; CEF; CAB; FAB. As you will note some of the headings may or may not be the same and may or may not include the same letters in different orders.

How can I write a formula that ranks in ascending order a given value drawn from the above list (which will be in another cell but which in this case is, let's say, the first value: 126) only against those values whose heading includes a specific character, for example the character C (the character in question will vary and be defined in a specific cell).

As an added complication I need the ranking calculation to exclude any zero values. So in the above example what the formula needs to do is rank the value 126 against a sub-set of the whole array comprising only the values 126; 122; 153; 0.

The answer I need is 2 because, discounting the zero value, 126 is the second highest value.

What would the formula be if A1 includes a certain string of text, then B1 returns a given value? e.g., if A1 contains baby then B1=carly.jpg?

## Conditional Copy Routine: Macro To Search A Column For A Specific Text String

Oct 5, 2009

I am trying to write a macro to search a column for a specific text string which when found, will copy the whole row the string is in. Once this row has been copied, I then want the macro to activate a new sheet and search for the next available empty row to paste the data. Once this has been done, go back to the original sheet and find the next cell in the original column with the specified text string and repeat until the range has been satisfied. Below is the script I have that sort of works.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Multiple Text Criteria?

Mar 1, 2014

I'm trying to set up conditional formatting in a spreadsheet where there are 3 possible correct letters that can be entered into a range of cells and if one of these letters is not entered then I would like the cell to be highlighted.

To be more precise, it's an accommodation spreadsheet and in each cell if someone needs a room for that particular night (each night is represented by a separate column) then a letter is used to indicate what type of room they require i.e. "k" is a king room, "s" is a Suite and "t" is a twin. I don't want to force people to have to select from a list which would be the obvious solution to this as it is simply too cumbersome for the amount of data entry we do.

However i want to ensure that if someone accidentally enters anything other than t,k or s then the cell is highlighted. We work in large spreadsheets covering months of dates so to manually have to find any errors is hugely time consuming.

## Rank Based Upon Two Criteria?

Oct 14, 2011

Sheet1 *BMNO1GenderAge GroupTotalRank2Male6-72103*3Male6-71437*4Female6-71294*

I will have 200+ records similar to the above. I would like a formula that ranks the totals. The Males in the 6-7 Age Group would be in 1 Ranking while the Females in the 6-7 Age Group would be in another.

I prefer a formula over a macro. My original thought was =rank(n2,offset(?,?,?,?,?),1) but alas I'm missing something.

## Pull Specific Word From String Of Text In Cell?

May 16, 2004

I need to pull a specific word from a string of text in a cell and have that word shown in an adjacant cell. For example A1 will contain the text "Smith Sun Alliance Pension Fund" I need B2 to show "Pension". I cannot use any filtering or text to columns as the word Pension can be anywhere within the text in A1 and I have thousands of entries. So I need a function.

## Calculate Rank Based On Criteria

May 20, 2007

I want to calculate the sales rank of the customer whose CUSTOMERID is equal to my ID? Note that sales rank is what position the salesperson is in terms of DOLLAR VALUE OF SALES.

Just a bit stuck on this. How do I calculate the rank? Is it a If statement or a Vlookup Question?

The spreadsheet can be found here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=5D0YCHIG (It's too big to be uploaded to the forum hosting).

## How Do I Perform An Array Multiplication If A Cell Contains A Specific Text String?

## Assign Specific Number To Cells Based On Another Cell Value In String

Feb 27, 2013

So I have this list (I made it a little bit shorter).

So what you see is two different tasks (01 and 02) and three different conditions (A, B and C). In column B you see the result I would like to have. '/Searchtask_01.html' in A1 belongs to conditions A, because it is in session A. However, '/Searchtask_01.html' in A10 belongs to conditions B, because it is in session B.

How to get the results in B with a formula?

## Rank Based On Criteria And Exclude Duplicates

Mar 20, 2014

I have a large spreadsheet where I've successfully ranked a large series of data based on revenue, using product classification as a criteria & summarising this on another page with the top 20 products. The problem I'm having is that within certain criteria's I have some products with the exact same revenue figure, so if the 2nd ranked product within classification "C" for example has revenue of \$100, & there's another product within the same classification also with \$100 of revenue, on my top 20 report I have results for the 1st & 2nd ranked product, but a blank for the third product & then results again for the fourth

The formula I'm using is

=IF(Y12="NA",0,SUMPRODUCT(--(Y12=\$Y\$12:\$Y\$6000),--(AC12

## Dynamically Rank Items Based On Two Criteria’s

Jan 3, 2007

I need to have excel dynamically rank items based on two criteria’s (category and sales).

For Example:
I have a list of items with its category in column A, column B has the sales information. I need to rank the items by category and sales, the data is not sorted and I cannot use a macros/VB.

## Conditional Formatting If Cell Does Not Contain Specific Text

Jun 11, 2013

How can I get cells in a column to be highlighted if the cell contains anything other than the word "approved"?

## Conditional Number Format Based On The Value Of A Specific Cell

May 9, 2009

I have a large spreadsheet which includes many rows whose number format needs to change depending on the value of a specific cell.

So for example:

If cell B20 has value "A", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 1,234
If cell B20 has value "B", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 5.6%
If cell B20 has value "C", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 7.89
Etc...

As conditional formatting does not seem to include a number format option I've worked out that I need some sort of macro to change these settings for me, either automatically whenever the value of B20 changes or, more likely, when I manually choose to run the macro.

## Search Cell For Text String And Paste Text In Based On Finding?

Jun 29, 2014

I need to create a macro to do the following:

Search the activecell for a text string (a), and then either paste in text string (b) at the end of the cell if (a) is found, or text string (c) if (a) is not found.

For example, if the activecell has "AA/" in it, I want the cell to become "AA/01" (pasting in "01" at the end), and if the cell has just "AA" in it, I want it to still become "AA/01" (pasting "/01" at the end). The macro will be linked to a commandbutton.

## Conditional Formatting - Highlight Cell Containing Specific Character Within Text

Jul 26, 2013

I have an excel spread sheet & I wish to highlight any cell that contains any of the following characters with in a string of text.

/ : * " < > ? |

E.g. a cell in the spread sheet containing the text "Is this a Question?" would be highlighted.

I have tried to use - 'Format only cells that contain' > Specific Text > Containing > for each of the characters and this does not work.

When I do this any cell containing any text is highlighted.

In addition there is formatting on any cell > 60 characters which turns the cell red and this works fine.

What would happen if (when I get the problem above resolved), a cell is > than 60 characters & contains a character listed above?

Does 1 formatting take precedent over another?

(Not critical to know the answer to the additional question, just curious - as long as it is highlighted one colour or another then no problem.)

## How To Search For A String That Includes The Symbol

Sep 18, 2009

I'm writing some VB in an Excel macro to search and replace a string of text.

The problem is that the string contains the " symbol, so when Access gets to that symbol it thinks that it's reached the end of the string.

e.g.

I want to replace "0519","863027" (including the quotes) with "0001","863027"

This is what the code looks like, but it obviously doesn't work :

## Conditional Formatting - Highlight Row Based On Cell Criteria

May 19, 2013

I need a macro that will highlight a row based on a cell criteria. I have used conditional formatting but there is a lot to format and has dramatically slowed the sheet down. However, I know nothing about macros/vbas.

E.g. If it states JI sent then I want the whole row to be highlighted light green.

App form needed = peach
Waiting list = light blue
Cancelled = red font strikethrough
DNA = purple font strikethrough.

Also - it could well be that in the row it has App form received, JI Sent and DNA all in 1 go. So ideally I would want that row to be highlighted light green with purple font strikethrough.

Booking Status
JI Status
Date JI Sent
Attendance
Cancellation date
Chargable / non chargable Cancellations
Chargeable / non chargeable DNA
Date taken
Time taken
Event Title
Start Date
Time

JI Sent

## Change Cell Colour VBA Based On Text String?

Oct 11, 2011

I need to change the colour of a cell using VBA based on the input of a certain word. I have used teh below code but it doesn't pick up different variations of the word

Dim cell As Range
For Each cell In Range("E2:E500")
If cell.Value = "Check" Then[code]....

This code works fine (i have put it into worksheet change) when I use "Check and Mark and Chase" but some users are bound not to use capitalised first letters and on these occasions the cell colours are not changing.

How to add something to thie code above to make it work for any variation of capitalisation?

## VBA Conditional Format Range Of Cells Based Upon Criteria In One Cell / Repeat For All Rows

Apr 3, 2014

Code is trying to

1. Where there is data in column B
2. Goto first row of data
2. If column J = "Closed"
3. then select Cells from column B to J in that row and colour these cells in red
4. If column J= "Open"
5. the select Celss from column B to J in that row and colour these cells in grey
4. Repeat for next row until you get to cell in column B where there is no data.

Recieve run time error 1004: Method 'RAnge of object_GLobal failed

===============================================================
Sub Colourclosed()
Sheets("Risks").Select
Dim LastRow As Long
Dim i As Long
LastRow = Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For i = 8 To LastRow
If Range("J" & i).Value = "Closed" Then Range("B", "J" & i).Select
Selection.Interior.ColorIndex = 3

[code].....

Note: I've managed to do it for one cell ie for Column B by replacing "If Range("J" & i).Value = "Closed" Then Range("B", "J" & i).Select with "If Range("J" & i).Value = "Closed" Then Range("B" & i).Select" This works but only colours in cell in column B, how do i do this so it colours range of cells

## Formula To Rank Text Objects Based On Numbers, Interesting Read

Dec 30, 2008

I'm attempting to create a formula that will find the name associated with a value, and return that name on the same column as that value in a later equation.

OK OK to illustrate it a little better:

There are three people: Bill, Ted, and Andy. Each one is ranked in Points, so my table looks like this:

A B

1 Bill 10
2 Ted 20
3 Andy 30

Later on, I want to rank the individuals based on their score, using a formula. Right now, I can rank the scores based using LARGE(B1:B3,1), then LARGE(B1:B3,2), and lastly LARGE(B1:B3,3). That ranks the numbers in descending columns. However, I want the information to automatically populate the name associated with that particular point total. So, I want the system to know that B1 is Bill's score, and rank it, in descending order, later on in the spreadsheet, with Bill's name.

## Entering Specific Text Into Cell Based On Its Format

Apr 13, 2013

I'm trying to make a schedule for some of my employees (300 to be exact) and I was trying to work out a way of speeding things up a bit. I've made plenty of pretty complex equations for working with the task but the solution for what I would like to do now alludes me.

Here's the challenge: I have a sheet where I would like to insert employees within row 4 and then have their shifts shown visually in the column below that, and have the hours they work put into a merged cell (or something similar), like what can be seen in the blue cell under "Employee 1" (C6). What I would like to do is just have something like a VBA detect that a series of cells is merged (red cells) and insert the corresponding time, located within B5:B33, into that cell (with same format as the blue cell). Also, above the employee's name I could put a button to run something like a macro to run the program for the corresponding employee directly under that button.

Essentially I want to merge a series of cells, hit a button, and have excel locate and input the correct times within that merged cell.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Text In Adjacent Cell?

Feb 16, 2014

A2:A5 contains different dollar amounts, a6 is the sum of those amounts

In column B (B2:B5), i place a "p" beside the amount in column A once it has been paid.

I want to:

a. conditionally format the amounts in column a to turn green once I put the 'p' in the adjacent column

b. conditionally format the sum in A6 to exclude amounts that have been paid, and only display the total amount of the unpaid lines.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Color Or Text Of Another Cell

Jun 14, 2013

1 2 3 4 5 6
1
2 x x x x
3 x x
4 x x
5 x x
6 x x

Assume that is the table i have. In row 1 i need conditional formatting such that if any of the columns contain an x the first row should be color coded. In my above example every column in row 1 will be color coded expect for row 1 column 6 since there are no x's for any any row in column 6.

How can i do this in excel.Also instead of x's if i have manually entered color can we do the same ?

## Conditional Format Based On A Text Range Within A Cell

Nov 11, 2009

conditional format formula that is based on a text range within a cell. In my case, I would like to compare the low and high range when inputted as a number followed by the quotation marks followed by space then hyphen, space then number and ending in quotation marks. The quotation mark is being used to represent inches.

Like this in cell D14: 0.2” - 2.2”

I am using the following condition format formula which works for the strict case above.

HTML =OR(D16<LEFT(\$D\$14,3)+0,D16>MID(\$D\$14,8,3)+0)
However, there will be times when users using this spreadsheet may leave out the spaces on either side of the hyphen, or add more than one space between the number and hyphen. Also if additional digits are added, my formula above does not include all the digits in the results. I prefer to leave the quotation marks in...........
