# Creating Macro To Calculate Columns With Varying Length

May 2, 2012

I have a column of data where the seperate entities are divided by blank rows. for example: i need to calculate sum(G3:G15) then skip the blank row (G16) and calculate the next group, say sum(G17:G50) and export that import to a new worksheet.

The issue is that the column lengths vary from day to day so the blank rows will not be in the same position.

## Combine Rows Of Varying Length And Varying Number Of Occurrences

Jun 28, 2012

There are 11,000 rows and 4,000 are unique. The goal is to merge the data down to the 4,000 records. Each of the unique entries shows up 1 to 15 times.

In trying to solve this, I wonder if I should break this down into the different # of occurances and implement specific solutions. e.g., There are

5700 entries that show up 2x
504 that show up 3x
24 that show up 12x

## Creating Macro That Can Grab Varying Amounts Of Data And Put Them In New Worksheets

May 1, 2013

I have one worksheet with four columns of data. Column A is a well name, RA-0001, column B is the measured depth of the well from 0 feet to however far down it goes, anywhere from 4000 to 15000 feet, column C is the inclination of the well, column D is the Azimuth.

I have 500 wells from RA-0001 to RA_0500 or so all in this one worksheet, all the wells have varying Measured Depths associated to their well name. I need to create a macro that can separate the wells and either put them in a new worksheet for each well, ie. a worksheet named RA-0001, RA-0002, ..... ect. OR, and this would be nicer, a macro that can actually save all these individual wells as (Formatted Text (Space Delimited)) files with the associated well name.

Here is an example of what it looks like. The columns do not have a subject line to state what information is in each column because I dont need it in that format.

RA-0001
0
0.00
0.00

RA-0001
100
0.91
5.56

[Code] .......

Even just knowing how to create a simple macro that would take all the data from each well so I could manually copy and save them as new files.

## Computing With Last 252 Rows Of Varying Length Column

Nov 26, 2009

Using Excel 2003, Column E has a varying and unpredictable number of rows, which only the final 252 rows are of significance. I need to compute the following formulas, here written in English as I can't determine the proper terminology to accomplish this task in Excel:

Final Row with a number in Column E/average (final 252 rows with numbers in column E)+

Final Row with a number in Column E/average (final 126 rows with numbers in column E)+

Final Row with a number in Column E/average (final 63 rows with numbers in column E)

Once again, what makes this not straightforward for me is the column may have wildly varying numbers of rows.

## SUMIF- Column Of Contract Numbers Of Varying Length

Mar 27, 2009

I have a column of contract numbers of varying length. I want to run a sumif of all of the values on my reference sheet that have the contract number beginning with the contract number in my listing. All of the the contract values in my reference sheet are very long. Since the numbers I am working with vary in length, i don't know how to match this string in the sumif function

I want something like this

=SUMIF('Reference Sheet!\$A\$5:\$A\$13410,LEFT("", LEN('Select Contracts'!\$C6))='Select Contracts'!\$C6,'FINALIZED DATA'!\$H\$5:\$H\$13410)

Is there a way to refer to the range in the sumif function,

## Bring Data From Sheets Of Varying Length To One Main Sheet

Apr 17, 2012

I have a workbook with several sheets of varying length (amount of columns). The length of each sheet changes every week. I want particular data from the sheets to come together on one sheet in as organized a fashion as is possible. I'm currently losing my mind copying and pasting every week when I need to update the thing.

## Depending On Value Of One Cell - Pull A Set Of Data From Another Page Varying Length / Width

Aug 12, 2014

I have drop drown menus that allow you to select 1 of 3 choices and based on those a second set which lists the options for the first three (subset). Now depending on the second value I need to pull a set of x y coordinates that can be of varying length. '

Example

Drop down menu 1 1560, 1669, 1554. Drop down menu 2 1560-1,2,3,4 1669-a,b,c,d. This has been done now lets say I select 1560-1. I need the following to be pulled from a list, the data is a block.

1.00 1.543
1.23 -1.25
0.54 -2.75

This can be of any length.

## Macro For Summing Columns Of Varying Lengths

Mar 16, 2007

I have a worksheet (downloaded from Paypal) and the columns I need to sum are of varying length (sometimes 12 rows and maybe 200). I am having trouble finding a way to find the end plus one of the column to write the formula in.

## Macro To Sum Variable Length Columns?

Jul 26, 2013

how can I make this simple macro sum columns that will be of variable length? I would like the sum to appear as the last entry in that column and highlighted.

VB:
Range("H36").Select
Selection.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM(R[-34]C:R[-1]C)"
Range("J36").Select [code]....

## Pull Varying Length Text From Cell Text

Text required can vary in length.
Extract text and place in another column.

All text in a single column, required text not in every line. but
does repeat.

## Calculate Sub Total With Varying Range?

Dec 4, 2013

I am working on an excelsheet containing a data dump from a manufacturing database. Inside this sheet i want to make subtotals of different production runs. The data that needs to be added up is in one big list between every production run there is an empty cel. So I want to make a formula that does: =SUM(one-cel-above-current:next-empty-cell-above)

Hi there, is it possible to calculate the Arc width by only having the Arc Length and Rise?

Rise is the height of arc

Arc length = 1525

rise = 230

width = ?

## Calculate Cycle Length Of Data Set

Feb 19, 2008

I have a data set that contains a repeating cycle. I want excel to find the first and second occurrence of the data crossing the zero axis and then report the time between the zero crossings. The data is not purely in ascending or descending order and often just changes from positive to negative or negative to positive without hitting the actual 0 point.

## Calculate Future Dates From Start Date With Varying Time Period/cycle

Sep 11, 2009

I need to determine a formula which will allow me to calculate a future date based upon a current date with varying time periods.

For example:

I have a bill which is paid on the 15th and last business day of each month. I would like to be able to see the next due date regardless of what day of the week it is.

I have a bill which is paid every other Tuesday. I would like to know the next due date without having to enter +14 for every due date in the future. In other words, it is preferable to be able to open the spreadsheet and automatically see the next due date, not use autofill to repeatedly add +14 to a previous date which would limit the # of future due dates that could be calculated.

I have a bill which is paid on the last business day of each month, not the last Friday of each month. I would need excel to return a value for the last day of the month which = Monday-Friday, regardless of what day of the week it may be as long as it isn't Saturday or Sunday(holiday exclusion would be nice but not required).

## Calculate The Length Of 2 Unknown Sides Of A Right Triangle

Mar 27, 2009

I need to write a spread sheet that will calculate the length of 2 unknown sides of a right triangle using the following information.

Here is what I know
1. I have a right triangle
2. I know the length of the hypotenuses
3. I know the ratio between the length of the other 2 sides

I need to write and Excel file that will solve for the length of the other two sides

The math look like a^2+b^2=c^2

with c being known and the ratio between a and b known

## Varying Validation Drop-downs Based On Varying Cell Values

Aug 7, 2013

I am attempting to have cells in Column 'U' deliver different drop-down menus based on the corresponding value in column 'D'. I have created 7 named lists:

List_117G
List_152
List_JMET
List_XBAND
List_PACWIND
List_VORTEX
List_ROVER

Those lists will be called up based on 7 values in column “D”:
“G”
“152”
“J”
“X”
“D/E”
“V”
“R”

So far I have only been able to get this to work for the first category “G”. When I change the value of column “D” from “G” to “152” I no longer get a drop-down. Here is the formula I am using in the List function of validation.

=IF(D6="G",List_117G,IF(D6="152",List_152,IF(D6="J",List_JMET,IF(D6="X",List_XBAND,
IF(D6="D/E",List_PACWIND,IF(D6="V",List_VORTEX,IF(D6="R",List_ROVER,)))))))

## VBA - Call Macros With Varying Names And On Varying Modules

Oct 2, 2013

I want to call a macro with a varying name that is within a module with the same name.

I have a module called Test1 and within this, a macro name called test1
I have a module called Test2 and within this, a macro name called test2
etc

On another module called Test8 (with the macro called Test8), this Test8 macro will call either Test1 or Test2 or Test3 etc depending on what I choose in an excel spreadsheet. So on sheet1, cell A1, there is a drop down with the options Test1 or Test2 or Test3 etc.

The following works to run the macro test1 from module test1 (when it does not vary i.e. i physically put in the name of the macro myself):

Sub Test3()
Test1.Test1
End Sub

The following works to run the macro test2 from module test2 (when it does not vary i.e. i physically put in the name of the macro myself):

Sub Test3()
Test2.Test2
End Sub
etc

However, if I try it so that the calling of the macro varies as below , it does not work:

Sub Test3()
MacroToCall = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Value
MacroToCall.MacroToCall
End Sub

## Copy 3 Columns And Paste With Varying Row Offsets

## Copying Contents Of Columns Of Varying Lengths

Feb 7, 2007

I export data from another programme into excel and I wish to write a macro to copy the contents of columns G, H, I and J and paste it into columns A, B, C, D but starting at row 4. I then carry out various formatting tasks. I have written a macro that works for the copy and paste and the formatting but it only works when the data is the same length. The length of the data exported varies each time and so I am looking for some code that stops at a blank cell and copies the range above. I believe this uses xlup or xldown.

## Dividing Dollar Amounts Unevenly Into Varying Numbers Of Cells/columns

Dec 10, 2009

I have dollar amounts that I need to distribute amongst varying numbers of columns and not have have the total distributed be over or under the original amount by any number of cents. When I simply divide the dollar amount by the number of columns, the total of those columns can sometimes be more or less than the original dollar amount by a few cents.

e.g.
Dollar # of A B C All Columns
Amount Columns Total
--------------------------------------------------------------------
\$25.05 2 \$12.53 \$12.53 \$25.06
\$11.47 3 \$ 3.82 \$ 3.82 \$ 3.82 \$11.46
\$25.05 divided into 2 columns gives \$12.53 in Column A and \$12.53 in Column B. Total of Columns A and B is \$25.06. Over by a penny.

\$11.47 divided into 3 columns gives \$3.82 in Columns A through C. Total of Columns A through C is \$41.46. Under by a penny.

I know I could simply always add or take away the pennies from one column, but I would prefer the process to be random or formulated in such a way that the Column to which the extra pennies are added to or taken away from differs in order to be "fair to each column".

## Create A Macro That Find And Calculate Based On Details Of 4 Columns On Same Spreadsheet

Jul 21, 2012

create a macro that will find and calculate based on the details of 4 columns on the same spreadsheet.

Basically, here is what I need to do:

1. Need to calculate how many QTY IN (Column F) and PALLETS IN (Column I) of a specific PART# (Column A) and LOT CODE (Column B) For example if enter a PART # and LOT CODE, it will calculate how many QTY IN and PALLET IN of that PART # and LOT CODE.

2. Need to do the same for QTY OUT (Column G) and PALLETS OUT (Column J) also.

3. Output should contain the PALLET # , QTY IN and PALLETS IN based on the PART # and LOT CODE search. I just want to simplify the search function in this spreadsheet because it is very cumbersome if you need to find how many items left for that PART # and LOT CODE.

## Referencing A Value In Variable Length Columns.

Jan 22, 2006

I have a SS I would like to reference a cell in a column which changes in
length. In this case, I would like to reference the most current date in a
column.

Is there a simple method for doing this, as the data will routinely be
different lengths in that column.

Further, there is Data on the Horizontal that I would like to reference to
another cell in another sheet that would correspond to this date. Can anyone
give any suggestions as to the best way to accomdate this?

## Split Text Into Fixed Length Columns

Jul 20, 2012

I have 5 columns with data in each

I want to create a 6th column that looks to the columns on the left with data in ti and concatenates all data in the 5 columns and puts it into one cell in the 6th column however put a space between each break of data so that it can be distinguished which bit of data was in what column previously.

The challenge is the new 6th column can only contain 30 characters - When it exceeds 30 characters then create a 7th column and put the rest of data in the 7th column, again the 7th column can only have 30 characters so if exceeds this then put the remaining characters in a 8th column

There will never be more than a total of 90 characters in the original 5 columns so there will only need to be scope for a maximum of 3 additional columns

So for example

Column A had two words in it that totaled 20 characters (the space between the two words is also counted as a character)
Column B had two words in it that totaled 20 characters (the space between the two words is also counted as a character)
Column C had a word that contained 10 characters
Column D had a word that contained 5 characters
Column E had a word that contained 10 characters

Then the result would be

Column F would only have the data originally held in Column A (because it can't include Column B's data as this would exceed the 30 characters)
Column G would have data that was originally held in column B and column C - with a space between B and C data
Column H would have data that was originally held C, D and E - with a space between C, D and E data

Another point to consider is if in one of the orginal 5 columns had say 3 words in it and lets say the 3rd word is the word that exceeds the 30 character limit, then the whole of the third word is to be carried oved to the next new column, I can't have words cut in hlaf with one half in Column 'F' and the other half in Column 'H' for example.

## Get Same Length Series Of Numbers From Different Columns In The Same Cell?

Oct 2, 2012

solve this task with a formula or a macro?

I have this strange number data stored by columns. Each cell contains one number series of different length from 1 to 13.

Needed results 1, Needed results 2
7409998765 7409998766 , 9998766567876, 7409998765 9998766 9998766 7409998766 9998766 9998766567876 9998766 9998766

I need to look-up and bring in one cell for each row only the 10 length numbers separated by space and in another cell the 13 length numbers space separated also.

The number of columns containing data is different from row to row ( from 2 to 60)....and the rows..are thousands..

## Macro For Rows Of Varying Lengths

Jul 13, 2007

I paste in information in Columns A-E with varying lengths for each report that I need to generate (They generally range anywhere from 10-500 rows). I have formulas already in place in the first row of Columns F-L that need to be copied down as far as columns A-E go. I recorded a macro for this when I try to run the macro for another report with more or less row entries it copies down as far as the original recording was set. How do I make it so the rows will copy down just as many as I need and not some arbitrary number of rows? This is my first post so if any clarification is needed that's no problem.

## Shorten String Length If Exceeds 31 Characters (max Sheet Name Length)

Mar 27, 2014

I've set up a filing system which saves sheets/ workbooks based on the value of a cell - Range("B1") Everything works great apart from when ThisFile String length exceeds 31 characters which you may know is the max useable character length for a sheet name - I had no idea! 8-0

Is there a way i can check if string length exceeds 31 characters then, if it does, shorten it to 31 characters?

## Format A Range Of Cells, Columns And Rows Will Vary In Length

Jun 16, 2009

I created a macro on an Excel spreadsheet:

Sub Macro1()

Range("C11:D19").Select
Selection.NumberFormat = "\$#,##0.00_);(\$#,##0.00)"
Range("E5:E20").Select
Selection.NumberFormat = "0.00%"
Range("D24:E43").Select
Selection.NumberFormat = "\$#,##0.00_);(\$#,##0.00)"
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=24
Range("D58:E339").Select
Selection.NumberFormat = "\$#,##0.00_);(\$#,##0.00)"
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=57

End Sub

When the macro is run, it works with the exact amount of data that I've entered.

However, because I have specified a specific range, if I add a row or column of data to the spreadsheet and run the macro again, it throws the whole thing off (certain cells get formatted when they shouldn't and others aren't formatted)

How do I tell the macro to look in the spreadsheet for varying ranges of data and format those cells?

## Macro To Subtotal Varying Lists Of Numbers

Apr 17, 2014

I am fairly new to excel and I am having trouble trying to get a sub total function to work for me. I need the subtotal to for a list of about 20 columns in one line with a varying amount of rows. So the subtotal must stop when there is a blank at the top. I can get the macro to find the totals A on the spreadsheet and then offset to beneath the columns of numbers but the sub total formulas takes in every number. Here is the example:

456.00
8,798.00

45,465.00
789,789.00

45,465.00
789,789.00

45,646.00
7,897.00

Totals A
