Convert Table To Concatenated List

Oct 9, 2007

I would like to convert the data by VBA macro from a table format into a list format. The convention of the TABLE data is as follows:

First row is Header Titles
[SITE],[LOC],[PROD], [MTH1], [MTH2], to ->[MTH12]
North, Office, Cooling, 100, 125, 85

I would like the data to be provided into a list format for each month.
For example:

Row 1: North, Office, Cooling, Month 1, Value
Row 2: North, Office, Heating, Month 1, Value
Row 3: North, Office, Electricity, Month 1, Value
Row 4: North, Retail, Cooling, Month 1, Value
Row 5: North, Retail, Heating, Month 1, Value
Row 6: North, Retail, Electricity, Month 1, Value

Remove Dupes From Concatenated Text?

Apr 3, 2013

I am trying to figure out if there is an easy way for me to remove duplicate text when concatenating cells together. For example if I have the following cells defined as such

A1 = red green orange
B1 = orange blue purple

when i do a CONCATENATE(A1,B1) I obviously get red green orange orange blue purple

How can i get excel to remove that duplication of the word orange without assigning each individual word to it's own cell and using the remove duplicates function?

VBA Formula Results In Concatenated Numbers

Apr 24, 2014

I need to show sum and not concatenated values have a userform w 60 fields for numbers as follows:

a) UserForm1.TextBox34 to UserForm1.TextBox41: 8 fields-CAD currency
b) UserForm1.TextBox42 to UserForm1.TextBox49: 8 fields-USD currency
c) UserForm1.TextBox50 to UserForm1.TextBox57: 8 fields-exchange rate
d) UserForm1.TextBox58 to UserForm1.TextBox65: 8 fields-Total CAD currency => the formula here works across the board
UserForm1.TextBox58.value = Format(UserForm1.TextBox34.value+UserForm1.TextBox42.value*UserForm1.TextBox50.value, "###,##0.00")
e) UserForm1.TextBox66 to UserForm1.TextBox73: 8 fields-local taxes in CAD currency
f) UserForm1.TextBox74 to UserForm1.TextBox81: 8 fields-federal taxes in CAD currency
g) UserForm1.TextBox82 to UserForm1.TextBox89: 8 fields-total for first column in CAD => the formulas here works as well across the board
UserForm1.TextBox82.value = Format(UserForm1.TextBox34.value + UserForm1.TextBox42.value * UserForm1.TextBox50.value + UserForm1.TextBox66.value + UserForm1.TextBox74.value, "###,##0.00")

have a grand total formula pulling in all values, and this one works as well; so i have 4 simple addition formulas, and the local & fed tax formulas do not.

however, the formulas for the sub-total for the local taxes and the federal taxes do not work; the results show a concatenation of the 8 values rather thn the sum of the 8 values; the formula for the local tax is as follows:
UserForm1.TextBox110.Value = Format(UserForm1.TextBox66.Value + UserForm1.TextBox67.Value + UserForm1.TextBox68.Value + UserForm1.TextBox69.Value + UserForm1.TextBox70.Value + UserForm1.TextBox71.Value + UserForm1.TextBox72.Value + UserForm1.TextBox73.Value, "0.00")

I have rewritten the formulas and still these two tax formulas result in concatenated numbers rather than the sum.

I would have u/l worksheet but it's roughly 4MB now.

Convert Text To Name To Use In Formula

Nov 5, 2012

I want to convert a calculated numerical value to a text value, but there are several possible conversions, each stored in a separate named range, referenced in another cell on the row. Normally I would use VLOOKUP and manually put the range name into the formula, so in this instance:

Formula D2=VLOOKUP(C2,Advanced,2)
Formula D3=VLOOKUP(C3,Intermediate,2)

But with lots of lines to do, I'd rather take advantage of the range name being present. Is there anyway of getting VLOOKUP to recognise the contents the appropriate cell as the name of a range?

Reference Different Concatenated Range Names In A LOOKUP Formula

Apr 2, 2009

I want to create a series of VLOOKUP commands with different lookup tables whose names are concatenated from two different pieces. Here's what I'm trying to do:


LUTWK01, etc., are named ranges. I have the text "WK01", "WK02", "WK03" stored in other places, and would like to be able to concatenate "LUT" and the particular week (e.g., "WK01"). The formula that I've created, which isn't working is:

VLOOKUP(x,CONCATENATE("LUT",A1),y, false) where cell A1=WK01.

When I pull out just the CONCATENATE portion, it resolves to LUTWK01, but apparently this is not recognized as a range name. Any idea as to how I make the VLOOKUP formula recognize a concatenated range name? Or is there a better way to do this?

Convert Text To Number With A Formula

Jun 12, 2014

I need a formula to copy a number stored as a text to the number.

I have a formula in, let's say on Sheet1, cell A1: =IF($M$3,TEXT(N7,"0%"),TEXT(N7,"0.0%"))

I then copy this cell to another sheet, let's say Sheet2, cell A1 =Sheet1!A1. I have then have a bar chart linked to this cell, but it's reading it as text and no bars are appearing in the chart - even though the cell in the second sheet is formatted as a number!

FYI - my work around is to link my chart to the underlying data in the formula above, in this case, N7. But then I'm not getting the whole number (%) or decimal (%) that I want when the value is displayed in the chart.

Convert Text To Formula In Worksheet

Jan 21, 2013

I have put together an excel sheet for how how long a part is on a particular machine. If there are multiple operations on a machine, I separated the operation times with a comma in the cell. I am now trying to get a sum of the total time the part is in a machine. I cannot just use a sum since the commas change the format from number to text. I was hoping I could do a substitution where I change the commas to plus signs and stick an equal sign in front of it and somehow get it to be recognized as a formula instead of a text string. Even then, I would still have to do a sum for the entire row. This is what I have as an example

_______Machine 1______Machine 2______Machine 3_______Machine 4_______Machine 5________Total Time
Part 1 _____20________ 10, 10, 10_________________________________________________________50
Part 2 ____15 ____________30____________________________10_______________________________55
Part 3_______________________________5, 15, 60, 10________________________5________________95

I need a column for summing the row of times (Machine Time). It doesn't need to be a one-cell solution. If I need to add a sheet to the file to do operations on the data that is fine. Again, I do not want to use VBA code. I already have a solution in VBA and am trying to do it in the worksheet only. I can get a substitution working to get a single cell into a format like 10+10+10, but that's the easy part of the battle.

Convert Cells Text To Formula

Sep 17, 2003

Is there a quick way, other than VBA, to put the contents of a cell that has the text of a formula into a second cell, but as a real formula?

What I mean is, if A1 has as text: abs(-1), I would like cell B1 to read the contents of A1 and evaluate it and put the results into B2.

Convert Data From Formula To Text Then Jump To Next Row?

Jan 15, 2014

I have a workbook with two sheets: Sheet 2 (CustomerVehicleInfo) contains a client database. Sheet 1 is kind of a virtual work order where the mechanic enters the name of a client (in A1) and all his info pops up in cells B4-F4, according to Sheet 2.

I used a simple VLOOKUP for that:

Same formula for cells C4-F4.

Problem is that the client data needs to convert from a formula to static text and next time the mechanic enters a new name in A1 it needs to jump to the next row, starting at B5.

Cell Formula To Convert Text To VBA Code

May 8, 2014

I am about to take on a rather large excel project for our company. The first part is coming up with how to deal with our drafting department's length inputs. In this project, our users will be entering lengths in a unique format. I have to convert that unique format to a standard Foot-Inch-Fraction format.

To try to keep the file size down and keep the complexity down, converting a cell formula to VBA so i can run this on a group of cells rather than repeating my code downward multiple rows on multiple sheets.

It is either this or come up with my own font that will convert it for me but I do not know where to start with that. How to take a stab at converting this to a VB code i can run?

A3 = 1.0108
B3 = 1'-1 1/2"

The code in B3 looks like this:

[Code] .......

An explanation of the unique format we use in our drafting department:

Basic Feet, Inch and Fraction format = 0 . 00 00 = Feet . Inch Fraction

The numbers left of the decimal point are feet. The first two numbers to the right of the decimal point are inches and the next two are sixteenths of an inch.

4’-2" = 4.0200
15’-5 1/4" = 15.0504
4’-11 3/8" = 4.1106
0’-1 15/16" = 0.0115

Convert Text To Number In Lookup Formula

Oct 16, 2006

I have a sheet that uses all vlookup formulas to populate the cells, and then some basic math calculation are done in seperate columns with the results. The problem is, even though the rest of sheet works fine one column is being read as text. I've tried many things to get Excel to read the column as numbers but nothing is working. So far I've tried everything I've found in Ozgrid (Paste special using add and multiply, using a working column)and the simple formatting things built into Excel, but nothing is working. All I need is for the column to be read as a number.

Copy Text To Cell And Convert To Numeric Formula

Feb 15, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where I enter text values in a cell, e.g. (.5 x .5) x 2 x .009. I want to find a way to automatically populated the cell to the right with the formula version, e.g. =(.5 * .5) * 2 * x .009 and format as three decimal place number.

One other question, is there a way to enter a template for entry in a cell. It would be nice if the text value above would take care of the parenthesis and multiplication signs for me.

Seeking Formula To Convert Specific Text To Number?

Apr 29, 2014

I have created an online survey, and people choose ten words (skills) out of 24 possible. Please see screenshot. I would like a formula that does this in layman's terms: "If I see the word "Cooperation" in the source cell, then I'll put "03b" into the target cell; but if I see "Managing" in the source cell instead, I'll put "21a" in the target cell, etc."

I've tried a few IF / Then statements, with no success. Screenshot shows the source cell upper right, and the ten target cells below left with two rows of sample results. I'm guessing the same formula can be in each of the 10 target cells.

Macro To Edit A Cell & Convert Formula To Text

Convert Cell Reference Text To Cell Formula

Aug 18, 2009

I am wanting to convert a cell reference text
to an actual cell reference

Manually I can go through each cell and click F2 + Enter and Excel automatically changes it.

I have tried recording a macro whereby I click through each cell with F2 + Enter but the VBA writes the actual formula "=$A$1" rather than the process. This does not work as the cell reference is variable.

I'm NOT wanting an external cell to convert it for me
because I am wanting to copy the answer to another independent spreadsheet

I'm NOT wanting to paste values
i.e. return the answer from cell $A$1
because I want the cell reference to remain within the cell.

Convert Array Into Text And Remove Duplicate Entries From Text In Cell?

Jun 12, 2014

I have the following two columns, and would like to obtain for each individual Company, the corresponding Country values excluding duplicates as text in a single cell.

Company 2Country B
Company 2Country C
Company 3Country C
Company 3Country C
Company 5Country A
Company 5Country C
Company 5Country C

For example:
- For Company 2, a cell containing "Country B, Country C"
- For Company 3, a cell containing "Country C"
- For Company 5, a cell containing "Country A, Country C"

I've approached generating an array using an IF statement, as in =IF(INDEX(A1:A8="Company 5",,),INDEX(B1:B8,,)," "), which returns the following array: ={" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";"Country A";"Country C";"Country C";" ";" ";" ";" "}.

The question is: how do I get that array to produce, as text in a cell: "Country A, Country C". Note that the duplicate Country C has been removed.

There are a few "StringConcat" User-defined functions that I've found elsewhere on the internet, but they don't seem to be able to handle to conditionally generated IF Index array, which I would think is key to parsing between Countries corresponding to each Company in the list.

Macro To Automatically Convert PrtScr Image Based Text To Real Text In Cell

Mar 22, 2014

Programming Excel VBA Macro to do OCR (text recognition) from a prt scr screen capture image and input the text into cells. Currently my Excel file has a push-button, and upon clicking on it the macro pastes into Excel the current clipboard image I have created by pressing prt scr while in another program. The macro then crops the image to the region with the applicable text. I have to then manually type the text I see in image format into the appropriate cells.

the VBA coding to automate this? I'd like it to use the clipboard image and run it through OneNote OCR, after which the applicable text values are automatically entered into the cells. Ideally the code will first crop to the region with the desired text before it does OCR. If this is not feasible, it will need to incorporate a method (keyword search?) to hone in on the desired text after the entire prt scr image has been OCRed.

Doing IF Compare Against Concatenated Value In VBA

Jan 31, 2013

struggling with the syntax of this one. Lets say we have a variable called MYWEEK with a value of WEEK 9 and cells A1 and A2 have values of 9 and 10 respectively. I need to be able to compare the variable against cells A1 or A2 but with a prefix of WEEK .

I've tried the following:

if MYWEEK = "WEEK " & A1 then ...
if MYWEEK = "WEEK " + A1 then ...
if MYWEEK = ("WEEK " & A1) then ...

I know the answer is staring me in the face but I cant see it. Any use of the ampersand presumably invalidates the IF statement by introducing multiple conditions rather than a concatenated value. How do you compare a value against a concatenated set of criteria in VBA?

Vlookup Concatenated Value As A Variable

May 13, 2009

Effectively I need to concatenate two columns in Sheet1, and then vlookup each concatenated value from Sheet1 in another concatenated column in Sheet2 and return the value from the next column

Now that is quite straight forward, but I am new to coding, and I was wondering if there was a way of doing it that doesn't involve having the concatenated values written to a column as a formula. Ideally what I would like it to do is put the concatenated value of Sheet1 together as a variable (I think thats what you call them) and then look up that variable in Sheet2 without Sheet2 creating a concatenated column too.

I'm of the understanding that this might be slower than writing the columns, but there is a reason for my madness.

Let me know what you think, or if i'm barking. Any suggested reading would also be handy, I don't like to bug you guys for the full code straight out.

Value Of Cell Based On Concatenated Values

Jun 19, 2014

I have charts that I have to update at work, and I want to make it as fast of a process as possible. Here is an example of what I want to do.

I want to put the letter B in cell 1, then the number 23 in cell 2. I then want to concatenate those two strings, which I can do. I end up with cell 3 which says B23. I then want cell 4 to to be the value of cell B23. If the B23 in cell 3 changes to C11, I want cell 4 to be the value of cell C11.

I would use an IF(x,x,x), but I want to to take into account the fact that it could be any cell on the whole sheet which would be one hell of a nested IF statement.

I need to do this without macros if possible.
