Create Dropdown That Will List All Names Starting With Initial Letter Of Names?

Jan 13, 2014

I have a long customer listing, names 5 to 36 characters and several with their location in the name as well as a few common duplicate names. I am trying to produce sheet where the customers name once selected opens in the customers spreadsheet and data can be added/amended for sales etc.The lists are not in alphabetical order as when created a customer number is automatically allocated. My aim is just to type in the first letter of the name and the dropdown appears the customer is selected and their card appears. I have tried data validation, lookup, vlookup, Dropdown and Match/find. they only return the first record found and no sign of any others. Find returned all instances of the letter appearing in every name.

Create A List Of Unique Names From A List Of Multiple Names

Oct 21, 2009

I have a database output file where one of the columns contains managers names, often more than once. I want to apply an autofilter on manager name and then copy the result to another sheet or sheets. My criteria for the autofilter is a variable pointing to a list of names that at present I maintain by hand; a for-each-next loop then cycles through the names.

What I would like to do, before running the autofilter code, is to create the list of names via code. This would then automatically pickup names that are missing.

The code I have so far is below:

Public Sub find_managers()
Dim managers1 As Range
Dim names1 As Range
Dim n1 As Variant
Dim n2 As Variant

In my mind it should check the names in the unique list against the imported list and add any missing names.

Create Array Of File Names/sheet Names

May 1, 2008

Two part question:

1) I'm relatively new to arrays, but what I need to do is generate a list of file names and the sheets within each one. I would like to use an array for this, but since I don't have much experience.... well....that's why I'm here. Can someone point me in the right direction?

2) And the second part of this.... I was planning on using the FileSystemObject to determine the files in a selected folder and loop through that list of files, opening each one and harvesting the required info (file name and all sheet names). Should I use the FSO or is there something built into Excel that might be better (and also limit the number of dependencies for this little "project" of mine).

Assign Values To Names In A Dropdown List?

Mar 8, 2005

Is it possible to assign values to names in a list, so that when you validate it as a drop-down list, you can select a name from the drop-down and it's corresponding value will be added to separate cell? Basically, I have survey questions which have five possible responses: Excellent - Very Good - Good - Fair - Poor. We want to assign a value to each, 5 for Excellent, 4 for Very Good and so on, so that when a response is selected from a drop-down, it's value appears in a separate cell (so that we can calculate a total and average score from the selections).

Looking Names In A List With Names Written Differently And With Duplicates

Aug 26, 2008

I am using Excel 2003 and Windows XP.

I have been given a list of my firm’s target clients (in excel) and an opportunities report (exported into excel) from our CRM system, which lists all the opportunities (i.e. opportunities to sell/provide products/services) that have been created for each client. Some of the column headings in the opportunities report are as follows:

Client; Opportunity ID; Opportunity Name; Opportunity Description; Created by; Date Created etc.

What I need to do is lookup each client, from the target clients listing, in the opportunities report to see whether an opportunity has been created; and if so, return the row of values (i.e. the Opportunity ID; Opportunity Name; Opportunity Description; Created by; Date Created) for that client. The result will be placed next to the name of the client in the target client worksheet.

I have a couple of problems. Initially I tried to use the VLOOKUP function to lookup the client name in the opportunities report and return the Opportunity ID (I then planned to use the same formula to return values from the other columns); however, as the client names in the target client listing were not always written the same way as they were in the opportunities report, the formula often returned #N/A. The formula I used was

=VLOOKUP(A8,'Opportunities Report'!A2:F51,2,FALSE)

So for example, the first client that I was looking up was written as “ABC Ltd” but in the opportunities report it was written as “ABC Limited”.

My second problem was that for some clients, there were multiple opportunities listed in the opportunities report. Where this was the case, there was a separate row (repeating the client name in the first column) for each opportunity created. I think that was messing up my VLOOKUP formula as well.

Is there a way to look up the client name, from the target client listing, in the opportunities report even if it’s slightly different and return the row of values for each opportunity created for that client on a separate row?

Reorder List Of Names With Capitalized Last Names

Feb 24, 2014

I'm trying to sort out a list of names from a website that publishes names in the following format:

DOE John
VAN GOGH Vincent
DA VINCI Leonardo

What I'd like to do is get the names in the following format

John Doe
Vincent Van Gogh
Leonardo Da Vinci
Rafael Nadal Parera
Miguel Angel Jimenez Rodriguez

Basically all the last names - which are all capitalized - would be moved to the end of the text string. Of course any leading spaces should be removed and I guess using the Proper() function, all capitalized words could be capitalized in a standard way.

I found the following function, here: [URL] ...

but what it does is just take the capitalized words and separate them into a separate cell, which is not all of what I want.

Excel 2010 :: Create Master List Worksheet From Lists Of Names On Several Worksheets

Jun 6, 2013

I'm using Excel 2010. I have a workbook that has six or seven worksheets in it. Each worksheet has a header row, and then lists of clients at the clinic where I work. The columns are last name, first name, medicaid #, social security #, DOB. We use these lists every month to verify that each client has Medicaid for the month. Therefore, there are also columns with names like April, May, June where we mark yes or no for each client. Some of the worksheets also have information about the clients' guardian, phone number, etc., but not every worksheet has those. (I can't show you the worksheets b/c of federal privacy laws, of course.)

I really, really want a worksheet that's a master list of the data from each of the existing worksheets, and I'd like to keep it synced to the source worksheets. I'd love it if I could also add a column telling me which of the source worksheets the data originally came from.

I've tried a few things to make it happen, but nothing has worked.

I've tried using the Consolidate function built into Excel as well, but that only works with numbers, not text, and it wants to manipulate the numbers instead of just copying them over.

I've found several macros online that should have worked (including one from this site) but that I wasn't able to install to my worksheet. I followed all the steps for installation, and throught it worked, but when I went back to the Excel file to run the macro, the list of available macros remained emptpy.

Is it possible that corporate IT has disabled the ability to install macros? Is there somewhere in Options were I need to go to turn Macros on?

Determine Sheet Names Starting With X Specific Characters

Jun 12, 2008

I have a worksheet that will have tabs added as time goes by and a macro within the workbook currently selects all of the sheets and copies and pastes formulas within all of the sheets simultaneously. Right now, if a tab is added, the macro needs to be updated to select that specific tab name as well.

I would like to simply have the macro select all of the sheets starting with "IL" until the sheet before "reference", or all sheets except the first 3 and the last 2 if that is easier. Any ideas? And thank you for your help, you people really amaze me sometimes!

Jump To Names Based On Alphabet Letter

Mar 20, 2009

I have a long list of names and right now I have to scroll down the list like crazy to get to some of the letters (xyz for example).

I really wanted to setup a clickable row or column that has one letter in each row or column, but I'm not sure I can do that as the sheet is already formatted. But I could just use one cell where I could click in it and type a letter which would jump me to the portion of the list that starts with that letter.

or I guess maybe something that pops up a requestor for me to enter the letter.

I found some stuff that was close on here that had some of the functionality I needed, but I couldn't piece it together.

I'm trying to go through David's books, but I haven't had a lot of time and I'm not getting some of the basics.
