Delete Row If Cell Text Matches Known String

May 21, 2008

I have an excel file, and on some rows, the "B" column contains the text " Total:" (it does have a leading space). I would like to loop through the first 200 rows (maximum length of the file) and delete all the rows that contain " Total:" in column "B". I have tried:

For i = 1 To 200
range("B" & i).activate
If range("B" & i).value = " Total:" Then
rows(activecell.row).select
selection.delete shift:=xlUp
End If
Next i

When I step through that code, it just skips over the IF function as if B1 does not equal " Witness:"

Delete Rows If Column Has Fewer Than X Matches To Part String Match

May 5, 2008

I have data sets on multiple worksheets within a workbook (over 70). Based on the begining of a string, I need to count all instances with that begining, and if there are fewer than 12 instances, delete the entire row.

Data set example:

In this example, I need to count each instance of rows starting with 1/* - 9/*, and delete rows as mentioned. In other data sets the string might start Gi1/*, and so on. In the following code, if I do not loop, and only test against 1 value type, and ONLY run it once, it works. As soone as I try to loop through all possibilities, or run the macro a second time, it blanks out the entire worksheet, starting at row 3.

Dim c As Long
c = Worksheets(i).Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
With Range("A3:A" & c)
If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Worksheets(i).Columns(1), "1/*") < 12 Then
. AutoFilter field:=1, Criteria1:="1/*"
.Offset(1).Resize(.Rows.Count - 1, 1).EntireRow.Delete
.AutoFilter

I have also tried to concatenate a variable with my CountIf criteria, but that fails miserably.

Delete Row If Cell Contains Certain Text As Part Of Text String?

May 15, 2014

I have a column of data with letters in each cell, no numerical, only alpha. Now, some of those cells contain the letters "adj sub" as part of the text string in each cell. "Adj sub" is always at the beginning of the text string. As an example, a cell will look like this - "adj sub mhm". I want to delete rows whose cell description does not contain "adj sub" as part of the text in the cell.

Finding Text That Matches Format Criteria In String?

Oct 3, 2011

I'm trying to restructure a list of files at work into a format that makes some sort of sense and can be filtered into useful information.

Part of what I need to do, is match up all the drawing numbers that a certain project references. The numbers are formatted like "####A##" ex. 1234A01,1234A02,5678A01, etc. The cells that I need to extract drawing numbers from contain some description or other text (not just the drawing number) so I need to extract the drawing number from that cells value. (Ex. I need to get the drawing number 1234A01 from a cell whose value is "blah blah 1234A01 blah blah blah")

I was thinking I could just search the string for "####A##" but I'm not really sure how....I tried instr, but I think its searching for the literal value of "####A##" rather than treating the # characters as wildcards...

I tried:

Code:
if rngNames.Cells(intx, 2).Value Like ("*####A##*") then
set intStart = instr(1,rngnames.Cells(intx,2).value,"####A##")
'....
end if
but intStart remains 0, so this method is not working...

Ignore Character String That Matches Another Cell

Mar 2, 2012

I have a cell that contains a string of characters that were combined from two different cells. What would the formula be for excel to ignore the characters that are from one of the cells? In other words, if cell A1 contains ABCD123 and cell A2 contains XYZ (the length of the string in A2 varies in length), the combined string is ABCD123XYZ. In cell B1 I would like excel to ignore the contents of cell A2. This seems simple but I'm not coming up with the right syntax.

If Text Of Cell In Range Matches Text Of Cell In Column - Match Formatting

Jul 5, 2012

Trying to create a button that, once clicked performs the following task:

Checks whether the text in a cell in the column X2:X40 matches the text in a cell in the Range A2:U14.

If it does, the formatting of the cell in X2:X40 (eg background) must change to match that of the corresponding cell in A2:U14.

Only 1 cell in the range will match 1 cell in the column

For example:
Before click:
Cell A9 has "John" written in it and a yellow background
Cell X4 has "John" written in it and a clear background

During click:
matches these cells
changes X4 so that it also has a yellow background

After click:
Cell A9 has "John" written in it and a yellow background
Cell X4 has "John" written in it and a yellow background

Delete Row If Specific Cell Value Matches Value Found In Another Worksheet

Mar 22, 2011

I need a formula or VBA macro to do the following:

I have 2 worksheets, namely sheet 1 and sheet 2.
Sheet 1 contains data in columns A to H.
Sheet 2 contains data only in column A.

I want Excel to check the data found in column A of Sheet 2 with those in Column A of Sheet 1. Hence, when an exact match is found in Column A of Sheet 1, Excel will delete that entire row.

Delete Rows If Opposite Column Cell Matches

Sep 6, 2006

I have a spreadsheet that is updated daily with data that falls into one of two categories: a) completely new to the sheet or b) existing from the day before but not taken care of yet. The items which fall into category a are evaluated, and notes added to the sheet. The items in category b must be compared to the new data, and duplicated lines deleted but notes from previous evaluation must be kept on the sheet. In addition, anything on the sheet that is not included in the new information needs to be deleted. I've set up a sheet with all old and new data with dates the data showed up as well as the notes associated with the old data, and have concatenated all the info from each row into column V (from another suggestion I got on a similar but not exactly the same problem which I also still haven't figured out). The sheet has been sorted by col V so any matching rows should be within 3 or 4 rows of the original. The problem is that my code does absolutely zilch!

Sub DeleteRepeatedRows()
' goes through coord. sheet and identifies duplicated lines, copies the date from the old row
' copies it into the new line, then deletes the old line
Dim rCell As Range
For Each rCell In Selection
If rCell.Value = rCell.Offset(1, 0).Value Then
rCell.EntireRow.Delete
End If
If rCell.Value = rCell.Offset(2, 0).Value Then
rCell.EntireRow.Delete
End If.........................................

VBA To Delete Part Of Text String

Aug 15, 2014

I am trying to delete part of a text string for a range of cells. The code I have so far deletes the first set of letters but is looking in every cell in the range.

Ideally I would like it to only look in the cells of col B where there is data then only delete the first 10 letters if the cell begins with "Service ID"

Sub DeleteServiceID()
Dim c As Range
For Each c In Range("B1:B1000")
c.Value = Right(c.Value, 10)
Next c

Cell Formatting - Red Text If Cell Matches Certain Condition Based On Another Cell

Sep 24, 2013

I have one column that contains a monetary amount (column AQ) , and another that contains text reading either "inflows" or "outflows" (column AC)

When AC says "inflows", AQ should be positive, and when AC says "Outflows", AQ should be negative.

I need the text in column AQ (the monetary amount) to become red when the the opposite is true.

i.e. When AQ is negative and AC says "Inflows", AQ should become red. And when AQ is positive and AC says "Outflows", AQ should become red.

VBA To Replace String That Matches Pattern

Nov 22, 2009

I have Userform1, Textbox1, Textbox2 and CommandButton1. Textbox1 is being manually inputted by users.

I would like that when I click Commandbutton1, that Textbox2 will be populated by whatever value was entered in Textbox1, except that the any string that matches any of the listed pattern below:

009???
017???
088???
078???
003???
663???

will be excluded. "?" here represent any 1 character.

So for example, if the user inputted "AA-90-088100ABC" in Textbox1, when CommandButton1 is clicked, Textbox2 should have the value:

"AA-90-ABC"

I am looking for a way to check for the presence of a member of a list in a field. Not for an exact match, but for the text to be somewhere present. I know I can use the "search" function to find text within text, but I don't see how to find the presence of any member of a range of values (a list) within the text.

Summarize Data Based On Partial String Matches

Jun 30, 2006

I have two questions:

a. Check the code below:

Dim news1 As String, news2 As String

news1 = "new"
news2 = "polygon"
Dim countie As Integer
For buddie = 2 To b1.UsedRange.Rows.Count
'If b1. Cells(buddie, 1).Value Like "new*polygon" Then
If b1.Cells(buddie, 1).Value Like news1*news2 Then
countie = countie + 1
n1.Cells(buddie, 10).Value = "test"
End If
Next buddie

I have 2 strings, news1 and news2, i need to use the like function to check the occurance of these two strings in all the cells, and just for testing purpose, im printing 'test' it out in another excel sheet.

How do i make that work? the commented line shows what exactly i want, only that i dont want to hard code the string values.

b. If i have a value in the cell:
/new/blahblah/anycra/polygon
how do i split it so as to assign two variables to have 'new' and 'polygon'.

I need to create a macro to do the following:

Search the activecell for a text string (a), and then either paste in text string (b) at the end of the cell if (a) is found, or text string (c) if (a) is not found.

For example, if the activecell has "AA/" in it, I want the cell to become "AA/01" (pasting in "01" at the end), and if the cell has just "AA" in it, I want it to still become "AA/01" (pasting "/01" at the end). The macro will be linked to a commandbutton.

Check If Text String In Cell With Other Text Is In List

Mar 27, 2008

I have a sheet in which some of the cells have two strings separated by a linefeed. I have come up with a cumbersome formula which will let me check if either of the two strings is a member of a list stored on another sheet. However, it fails if there is only one string in the cell, presumably as there is no linefeed for the formula to find. How can I modify the formula to cope with this situation?

There are also on occasions, three strings in the cell, but I can't seem to access the middle string with the formula. Simplified spreadsheet attached to show the problem. This must be formula-based, as we have a no VBA policy. If you think there is better way of doing this, please let me know.
