I need to create a purchase order page whereby each item is then transposed into seperate sheets detailing the product along with price etc. I need the po number to be automatically generated to follow on from the previous therefore giving us a continuous po thread. I also need the purchase order as typed to be saved into a seperate sheet / file each time so that the po is always blank when someone else creates a new post

I have a mass of data which look something like this:

table removed

and I require the ranges of reference numbers to be listed in a column one above the other, which requires inserting new rows. I also need the date & description columns copied down into the newly inserted rows.

So basically for example I would want the top row to now read:

table removed

and then apply the same procedure to the other ranges below this.

I'm putting together a document where I'm trying to automatically create a reference number for each entry. The reference number needs to consist of a site ID (found in column A), an underscore, and then an incrementing number dependent on how many entries the reference number appears.

For example, in column A, the first time the site ID: 12345 appears, I'd like the reference number 12345_01 to be created. The second time it appears, the reference number would be 12345_02. And so on.

If possible, as illustrated above, the first nine references need to have a 0 before the number - i.e. 01, 02, 03, etc - when it hits the tenth instance the reference becomes 10, 11, 12, etc.

I've tried to solve this with COUNTIF, but cannot get it down.

I currently have a project i am working on based on a invoice system and in my case it is to do with Van rentals. what i am looking to do is create a macro so that when the user clicks the order van button, it brings them to the order page and automatically creates an invoice number which is automatically added to the invoice database along with the customers details and the date of the invoice in a different sheet.

i have been browsing various forums and tutorial and have come across an a piece of code that is incrementing numbers each time the button is clicked. I can add the first set of details to the invoice database however i am unable to create a new row which copies the formulas and just change the invoice number as it is incremented - it just copies the same number

Now i am a complete novice in using VB and i have knowledge to an extent using excel. Is it possible to do that?

Sub test() ' ' test Macro Sheets("Invoice List").Visible = True Sheets("Customer Menu").Select ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Visible = False Sheets("Customer Van Order Form").Visible = True ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-12 Sheets("Invoice List").Select ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "='Customer Van Order Form'!R[7]C[6]:R[7]C[7]" ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "='Customer Van Order Form'!R[7]C[6]" Range("B2").Select.............

I am trying to get Excel to write a series of incremented serial numbers to an external program. I need 10 per line, then for the code to send ENTER and start writing on the next line. Following is my current code:

For i = 0 To qty - 1 SendKeys prefix_sn & next_sn + i & "," Next i

I'm working with some diagnostic messages produced by a communications network, and trying to isolate a certain kind of message. There are many different types of messages contained in the error logs, and I need to look at different ones at different times. As a single log may contain thousands of messages, I'm trying to use VBA to grab the ones I want. The easy part is that these logs can be exported as CSV files.

Each message contains an identifier which I can use for finding the correct messages of a given type. (I'm only looking for one type at a time.) However, this identifier is not on the first line of the message; it's buried a few lines down, and the number of lines is variable. Additionally, the length of the message is variable. The good news is, all messages of interest start with the same text string, and all of them end with another consistent text string. It looks something like this:

Message Start blah blah Message Type blah blah Message End

(Where "blah" is useful information that varies, and the number of lines of blah varies.)

The Message Start string is constant across all message types, as is the Message End string, so I can't use them to find the correct Message Type. However, they are still useful for marking the start and end of each message.

I'm using the find function to find the correct message type, then another find (going up) to get the start of the message, and putting the row number into a variable (msgStartRow). Then I find again for the end of message (msgEndRow).

That all works just fine.

What I can't figure out is how to turn those message row numbers into a range that can then be copied and pasted onto a separate worksheet.

How can I use these variables to copy the correct range? For example, this is what I recorded manually, but it's not intelligent. It can't accommodate different message lengths:

Is it possible to create a string with a range of numbers

1 3 4 5 6 8 10

Result: 1,3:6,8,10

Or

1 2 3 4

Result: 1:4

Or

1 3 5 7

Result: 1,3,5,7

Where consecutive numbers are separated by a ":" and other numbers by a ",". I use the following function to create the ","-concatenate, but I don't know how to create the ":"-ranges.

I need to create a function that numbers rows with respect to data groups in a column (column labeled "Type" in this example). The result would be that shown in column A in this table.

How do I write the function? #TypeName Date 1CarsJohn1/12/2008 2CarsJane11/10/2007 3CarsMary11/2/2004 4CarsBob12/7/2003 1TrucksMike12/12/2007 2TrucksSandy1/3/2007 3TrucksDale12/14/2006 4TrucksVince4/8/2005

I'm going to be using a spreadsheet to keep track of where different people are at. So if Person 1 is in Room 3, I will stick a 3 in the box next to their name and then can look at the spreadsheet whenever I need and see what room they are in. When I'm deciding what room to put a person in, though, I need to be able to quickly glance at a list of Room #'s and see what one's are still available. So I have a bank of Room #'s in the spreadsheet....1,2,3, etc.

What I'd like, is some way to set this up so that when I put, for example, "3" in the cell next to "Person 1" the spreadsheet automatically removes "3" from the bank of available Room #'s and when I delete the "3" because the person has left, it adds "3" back to the bank of available Rooms.

I have this kind of data going down about 2000 rows. I want to find how many times 1 and 5 appear in each row until there is no more data to read. I found the formula below but I cant use it for 2000 lines plus any extra that will appear in the future...

I have named ranges and I want to get the total number of columns/rows or the last cell so I can index relative off off it to get at a value of an individual cell. No I dont want to go definning all names for this specific location, I want the flexibility to relative address it from the row/column or last cell of the named range. I looked at the column and columns props. The first gives a number that makes no sense and not a total of all columns and the last gives back a Range of columns, wonderfully recursive.

I'd like Excel to run a check to see if a row of numbers runs in sequence.

*As in row 4, the numbers dont have to incriment each time *As in row 2, there may be gaps in the data *As in row 6, the data cant increase and then decrease. Each subsequent number must be the same or high than the previous *There could be varying amounts of numbers per row, hence the results being in column R

As an added bonus it'd be nice to see where an error occurs, but just knowing theres an error (column R) is the primary goal.

I am trying to use the code below to eliminate data in a spreadsheet based on certain criteria. I have been able to get this to work with text fields just fine, but now I am running into an issue with numbers. I am trying to get this code to delete rows if they have the word "unknown" in column C and if the value in column B is greater than 900 hours (999:00:00), the numbers in this column are formatted as [hhh]:mm:ss. What should I tweak to make this work?

I have been asked if I can create a pseudo Lottery/Bingo card of 7 images with no repeat cards. The best i can tell is that I need to create a Permutation of the numbers 1 - 7. There should be 5040 combinations of unique possible cards. My problem being I don't know how to create this Permutation in Excel.

See attached spreadsheet. I am trying to create one formula that will take the product of numbers in column B based on criteria in column A (want the product of %s in each year). Product if formula.xlsx

Way to create order and quote numbers. I'm currently starting an order number with a "O" in front of the order number and a "Q" in front of the quote number but this presents a problem when trying to create the next consecutive number because the number has a letter at the start of it so I can't use the method plus 1. I'd just simply remove the "O" and "Q" from these numbers but I need the numbers to be unique from each other and putting the "O" or "Q" in front was the only thing I could come up with to avoid the numbers ever being identical. I often need to look up these numbers and return the values in that row so the numbers need to be unique from one another.

The information for quotes and orders is saved on separate workbooks but I'd still like the numbers to be unique from one another.

Having a letter at the start of each number or a work around for using the plus 1 method when you do have a letter at the start of the number?

I have 12 Cells, years 1 to 12. I want to create a random number for each cell, which then depending on what the number is, either 1-75 being 8,000,000 or 76-100 being 10,500,000, place it in the cell and be able copy it down. What i have done already you can see on the attached workbook, or the table i used:

I used this table to generate the random number to give either 8m or 10.5m, except i put the VLOOKUP in the year 1 cell, added some dollars signs and copied down but that only makes them all the same, so i want a way to make each year have its own random number preferably without making 10 tables.

I attempting to create a formula that will create random numbers in a column without repeats. For example, I have a spreadsheet with two columns. The first column I want to contain the random numbers and the second column will contain names. I just need the formula to create the random numbers once.

I would like to have a sheet where there is a cell designated as "start number" (where any number may be entered) and a cell designated as "how many times". I would then like to be able to click a button and excel generates a list of sequential numbers starting from the number designated in the "start number" cell as many times as is designated in the "how many times" cell.
