Creating A Search (loop)

Dec 15, 2011

I've got a code that stores a variable and then searches for that variable in a different file. When it finds the answer it it jumps over and up and highlights a different cell. The problem now is that I want it to keep searching past where the first result was and repeat this process down the entire column. Here's what I have so far:

Sub Find()
' Find Macro
' Finds a specific key word or phrase from the search box and codes the matches green.
MsgBox "This may take a moment, please be patient."
' This next line establishes the fact that the function will use a variable.
Dim FindClass As String

Creating Nested For Loop

Feb 4, 2013

I'm trying to finish writing the last portion of a macro created to automate my data analysis project for my research but I'm having trouble writing the last For Loop of the code. I have a target cell B25 which states a given temperature of my reaction. Once a value is entered in B25, 5 activity coefficients are calculated and displayed in cells B31,35,39,43, and 47 which I would then like to copy and paste in cells J31-J35.

However, I'd like to calculate the activity coefficients for a range of temperatures which are listed in cells J30-W30. Thus, I need to create a For loop which copies the value from J30 into B25, copies the values from B31,35,39,43, and 47 to J31-J35 and then moves to the next column replaces the value of B25 with K30 and repeats the same process until all the columns are filled.

Creating Named Ranges Using A Loop?

Nov 2, 2011

i am trying to write a macro to loop through a column of data, creating a named range each time it encounters a certain string. so, it inititially finds the first instance of the string, then finds the next instance, offsets one row back and then names that as the first named range. how do i get it to actually loop through the column until the end of the data?

I can get the first range named but can't figure how to get a loop into my macro to repaeat the process.

Sub x()
Dim rngTemp As Range
Dim rngFind As Range
Dim rngFirst As Range
Dim rngLast As Range
Dim nom As Range
Dim strFirstAddress As String

Creating Search Bar Using VBA

Mar 26, 2014

I'd like to create a search bar where someone types text into a field in Sheet1 (in the sample B1), then clicks a macro button to search for that word in Sheet2.

The result should be that the cell containing that word is where you end up.

The search word shouldn't be an exact match for the result, the cell just needs to contain it.

The search bar should also be present on Sheet2, with an additional button for Find Next, so that the user can move to the next result if the first one is not what they're looking for.

I've managed to create a search function with a pop up box using the below but this isnt as effective.

Creating A Search Box

Dec 1, 2008

I need some help in creating a search box in excel. I have 4 rows of data, and want the user to enter a 4 digit number in a text box, which is then searched in the spreadsheet, pulling up the results.

So far I have the following code..

Sub Button1_Click()

'Opens box and ask what do they want to search
searchthis = InputBox("Type in a location keyword.", "Property Search")
'Tells where to search
'and then search in them whatever the user entered:
Selection.Find(What:=searchthis, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:= _
xlFormulas, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:= _

End Sub
It only highlights the results, leaving all other data on the spreadsheet. Ideally id want to see only the results of the search. Is there anyway to do this?.

Also, if the search returns no results, I get a debugger message. I want some sort of error message to come up.

I am trying to create a number counter which runs up to a value which is determined by a COUNTIF Statement in the spreadsheet. I can get the number counter to run to the given value. However, due do formatting reasons I do not want the counter to start in cell A1 but A3 instead.

Essentially my code looks like this:

Creating A Hyperlink To Search A Column For A Value?

Jan 6, 2009

Is it possible to make a hyperlink that will jump to a section that is not based on cells (A10, etc..) but rather on column (A) and a certain value in the cell, for instance, 2.1 or 2.2 or 2.3. The reason I want to do this is that when I have to add in new rows I do not want to have to redo all the hyperlinks since the cell shifted.

() Creating A Search Command Button (Macro)

Feb 5, 2009

I am trying to create a uniform stock database for my company. Thus far, I have 2 worksheets. The first is a face sheet, for the user to interact with. This face sheet has a number of drop down menus on it allowing them to select "Type" and "Size" of the item they need. This information is then translated (by a hidden table) into an item code.

The second sheet contains a list of all the uniform items currently in stock. Each item has its individual code that correlates to the code the face sheet generates.

My question is regarding a search macro.

I want the user to be able to click a command button on the face sheet, labelled "search". This would then take the generated "Item Code" and search for it on the second worksheet. I am aware that it would be very easy for them to simply copy the code into "find" on the second sheet, however it needs to be as easy and quick to use as possible.

Creating A Chinese Corpus Can I SEARCH() A Range

Nov 18, 2008

I'm only moderately skilled with Excel, and I work primarily with the logical, not mathematical functions. That being said, I'd like to know if there is a good method for Excel to solve this problem. I've been working at it in a rather sloppy manner until I began researching some other approaches.

The Problem(s):

I am developing a site that teaches the grammar of modern Chinese at the same time that it builds vocabulary by frequency. There are a couple of issues with this:
Chinese word corpi are virtually nonexistent, and where existent, sloppy.
Chinese character corpi are more available and somewhat more reliable.
The difference between a word and a character in Chinese can be a bit hazy, but the easiest way to put it is that not all characters stand alone as word and that most words are two to three characters in length.

Therefore, using data from the character corpus and a few thorough dictionaries, I created a word list in Excel that has the words and definitions in separate columns.

I have likewise found a character corpus that I have appropriately organized by ranking and other relevant data. The characters occupy a column.

Here's the basic logical function I am trying to create in separate columns, which are organized by frequency of the character:

=IF(AND(OR(contains any characters in the character corpus from frequency x to frequency y),NOT(OR(contains any characters in the character corpus from frequency y+1 to z)),Word Column,"")

Now, I know now that I have a good workaround, so I can shorten this to...

=IF(NOT(OR(contains any characters in the character corpus from frequency y+1 to z)),Word Column,"")

The problem is that I don't see any effective means of efficiently coding the OR condition!

Is there some magic that can be done so that I can use the ISNUMBER(SEARCH(characters,word cell) function for multiple characters?

I definitely don't want to go...
=IF(NOT(OR(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("",word cell)),ISNUMBER(SEARCH("",same word cell),...),Word Column,"") for thousands upon thousands of characters!

Is there a way for me to select a range of values within the SEARCH() function to allow this kind of programming?

I also had a look at the filters, but found myself facing the same problem.

VBA Loop To Search And Delete Certain Cells

Feb 24, 2014

I'm trying to create a function that will search for a certain value and if that true, delete certain cells in the same row. So far, I've come with the following and not sure how to write particular line.

So this function will go through column G and count the rows since it could have 1 or 50,000. So for example if column G2 has a value anything other then "Pending" then I need cell T2:Z2 to be deleted.

I know this line is the source of error Rng("T & Rows.Count:Z & Rows.Count").Select but I don't know how to express it.

Sub Check_Status()
Dim iLastRow As Integer
Dim Rng As Range
iLastRow = Cells(Rows.Count, "G").End(xlUp).Row
For Each Rng In Range("G1:G" & iLastRow)
If Not Rng.Value = "Pending" Then
Rng("T & Rows.Count:Z & Rows.Count").Select
End If

Excel 2007 :: Loop To Search Worksheets For Specific Range Value?

Mar 8, 2012

using Excel 2007. I need a code to identify a worksheet within a workbook by cell/range value. The book is used by various users. They have the rights to add new sheets and all but delete columns in the 'master worksheet'. The sheet names can be changed by the user but I need to rename the master sheet on opening the file. To do this I have put a specific value in a cell within the master worksheet which then should allow me to find the sheet and rename it. (let say Range A1 has a value of "this sheet") I have a mental block on how i can run a loop to search each sheet for the identifying value until the range and value is found and the sheet identified

I found a way to find and replace, but I not sure how to use it with qoutes. I was thinking maybe I dont even need row A and just supply a list and excel could have the chunk of data in the code itself.

Loop Within A Loop (repeat The Loop Values)

Mar 31, 2008

With Sheets("regrade pharm_standalone")
For Each r In .Range("standaloneTerritory")
If r.Value = "X101" Then
Sheets("X101").Range("A1").End(xlDown).Offset(1).PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
End If
Next r
End With
I need to repeat this loop for values from X101 to X151. In all cases, the sheet name is equal to the value I'm looking up (eg: value = X102 goes to sheet X102).

I have a named range called 'territories' that contains the list of X101 -> X152.

I'm hoping to make the code perform the loop for each of the territories without my having to copy & paste and change the 'X101' 51 times as this would seem a rather silly thing to do!

Loop Through Multiple Files And Call Macros (but Unable To Loop)

May 14, 2014

Macro which loops through a number of files and calls the same macro in each of them. Unfortunately when I add "Application.Run..." to the code, it no longer loops through the process and instead stops after updating the first file in the loop. If I remove the "Application.Run..." code and add any other code, the loop works fine and it continues through the process repeating all the steps for each file found.

Why it stops after one file when using "Application.Run..." to call the macros?

NB I have a list of path and file names starting in row 8 of columns A and C. Each file in the list has a macro called UpdateS1 and promoupdate1.

Sub C_Run_Loop_Macro()
Dim lastRow As Long

Store Row Number Within Loop And Delete All Stored Rows After Loop?

Sep 11, 2013

I have working code that returns a row number within a for loop based on parameters I set.

Each time the for loop runs I would like to store this row number, then after the loop has finished, delete all stored rows.

for rowNum = 1 to x (some variable end row number which I already have worked out using End(xlUp).Row)
if x = y then
*storedRow = rowNum
end if
next rowNum

Lines with a * are the bits I can't work out. I've been trying to understand arrays by reading posts on what other people have done, but I can't fit (or fully understand) the reDims, or reDim preserves into my code. I've seen what appear to be quite complex ways involving uBounds and LBounds, but unfortunately I can't see how to use them.

All I want is to simply keep adding a row numbers to a variable, (i.e. row 2, 5, 20, 33, 120, etc) and then delete those specific rows.

Loop Through Cells And Ranges Reverse Order With Backwards Loop

Aug 30, 2006

I am looping through each cell in a range and I would like to loop in reverse order.

Dim CELL As range
Dim TotalRows As Long
TotalRows = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
For Each CELL In Range("C1", "C" & TotalRows)
'Code here to delete a row based on criteria

I have tried:

For Each CELL In Range("C" & TotalRows, "C1")

and it does not make a difference. I need to loop in reverse order since what I am doing in the loop is deleting a row. I am looking at a cell and determining its value. If the value is so much, then the row gets deleted. The problem is that the next row "moves up" one row (taking the pervious cell's address) and therefore the For Each Next loop thinks it has already looked at that row.

Loop Through Index Worksheets Using For Loop And Select Clause

Nov 4, 2013

I have a workbook that contains, say, 50 worksheets: the first two worksheets summarise the data and are static in that they don't move position. However, the next four worksheets contain certain data for any given month. Each time a new month comes along, say, November, I insert four new worksheets after the two static ones as a result October's four worksheets are simply moved down the line in terms of worksheet order.

I need a macro to refer to the first six worksheets only (not the other tabs). I opted for index referencing for each worksheet, ie one - six. Now within these six worksheets in any given month, I need to sort the data by a certain column. The problem: in sheets 1,4,5 and 6 I need to rank by column E, but in sheets 2 and 3 I need to rank by column C. I have stepped through the code, which works for sheets 3-6, but doesn't seem to refer to sheets 1-2.

Sub WorksheetLoop()
' Loop through an indexed number of worksheets; _
' & this ensures that the worksheet range is dynamic _
' and is able to adjust when new sheets are added/removed, etc.
'Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim i As Long

Avoid Changing A Loop Counter Within A Loop?

Oct 24, 2009

I've worked on a solution for this thread ( but have been mentally challenged with how to avoid changing the loop counter in one of the loops I have used to resort an array of file names from the getopenfile dialog.

The aim of the shown code (see post 12 of the above link for attached file) is to check if the file containing the macro is included in the array returned by getopenfile while sorting the array of file names, and if so, moving it to the end of the array for "deletion" by redimming the array to exclude the last item. This problem of the open file being selected in the dialog may never arise, but... as the OP's request in the other thread was to allow two-way comparisons between numerous files, I've considered it likely enough to test for.

Here's the code I have settled for esp between the commented lines of hash symbols, which does change the counter (see the commented exclamation marks), but prevents an infinite loop (on my second try!) by using a second boolean flag of "HasCounterBeenChanged". Is there a better way of doing this? Or, alternatively (not in my thread title), is it possible to prevent the active file being selected through one of the arguments in the getopenfilename method?
