## Values In Cells That Contain Text In Both Lower And Upper Case

Sep 10, 2008

I am using the Find fuction to look for values in cells that contain text in both lower and upper case. I am comparing the values that I have stored in a lookup table. I am running into trouble when the lookup table doesn't match the text cells....

## Macro Logic: Extract Higher/lower Values Based On Unique Cell

Jun 12, 2009

This is a logic based macro that needs to compare values in 1 column above a specific cell and take action until the column has no more data. Here's what I'm trying to do (and I've also attached a sample of desired results):

1) I want user to input starting cell. So I need to create a button for that.

2) This is where the logic begins and I'm having difficulty.
From cell defined in button, I move up one cell in that column and compare that value to the original cell.

If the value is greater than original cell then logic needs 2 outcomes:

a) move up 1 cell in column and if that value is less than original cell, then extract that value and copy that value one cell to the right or 1c.
b) move up 1 cell in column and if that value is greater than original cell, then move up again, until find lesser value than original cell. Once we find value less than original cell, extract value and copy value one cell to the right or 1c.

## List Column And Row Values For Zero Valued Cells

May 1, 2007

I have a spreadsheet with about 300 products listed in column A. In row 1, I have 30 store listed across. This produces a grid of data with sales for the past 3 months. I would like to easily have a list of the product and store that had 0 sales. I have tried a combination of INDEX/MATCH as an array formula but can't get it to work.

## Line Chart With Upper And Lower Limit Values

Sep 27, 2006

I want to make a line chart that plots a variable over time (say, monthly) and that shows upper and lower limits as the 2nd and 3rd plot. My table layout, boiled down to the bare essentials:

Col 1 = Measurement date
Col 2 = Measurement (pressure, for example)
Col 3 = High limit (never varies)
Col 4 = Low limit (never varies)

The chart/graph in this case would show at a glance how water pressure varies over time and when it goes over (under) a limit. The table has about 50 variables.

## Determine Value And Add Error Message If Value Equals To Or Lower

Aug 13, 2014

I have a number(Currency) in my Cell A1 = \$100.00

I have a currency that will be inserted by my user in A2

In A3 I need to have the following:

If the user add a value lower than A1 then Error message "Invalid" but if it's equal or higher then leave as is (Meaning add the value from A2 in A3).

The user cannot add letters if so then "Invalid".

## Highlight And Delete Lower Value Of A Subset Of Cells?

Apr 30, 2014

I have a huge list of data with numbers in cells. each number also has a corresponding percentage in the next cell over. In some cases, some of the numbers appear twice with differentiating percentages in the cells. What I am trying to do is automatically highlight and delete the duplicate number with the lower of the two percentages. See the below example.

2069091%
2069088%

As per above, I would want to delete the duplicate number with the 88% since it is the lower of the two percentages of that number. I have almost 2000 cells and have been going through manually deleting the lower of the two percentages for the duplicate numbers.

## Selecting Cells Based On Last Used Column In Lower Row

Nov 21, 2008

I am inserting a subtotal above my data set, the first cell that this subtotal takes place is "R1", then I have an unknown number of subtotals going right, depending on the number of months FCSTed by my sales managers.

Attached you will find a subset of the data and you will see that I need to select "S1 : iLastColumn(1)".

## Speed Improvement - Macro Extract Higher/lower Values And Note Time Differences

Jul 8, 2009

I have a macro that needs a major improvement in performance. I have a Quad Core 2.67GHz single processor computer and with the current logic it calculates 20 values per minute. I have data sets that can be up to 400,000 data points, which means it will take 333 hours. The attached Sample file has over 9000 point. For this data set it takes 7.5 hours.

The core logic of the macro is to extract what I call “Break Point” into column M and “Time Difference” between the Break Points to column O.

I got the code from this forum (thank you DonkeyOte) and made some modifications. The modified logic does the following:

1) The user inputs the starting cell. In the Sample I use G200.

2) From cell defined in button, It moves down one cell in that column and compares that value to the original cell.

If the value is greater than original cell then there are 2 possible outcomes:

a) move down 1 cell in column and if that value is less than original cell, then extract that value and copy that value to the column M (Break Point value) and copy the Time Difference Value to column O. “Time Difference” is calculated as the difference between the 2 point breaks in Column A. In this case I’ve hardcoded 0.003472222 to get 5 minutes which matches up with each incremental time in column A, but I would like the Macro to automatically calculate that by the difference between Column A values.
b) move down 1 cell in column and if that value is greater than original cell, then move down again, until find lesser value than original cell. Once we find value less than original cell, extract value and copy value to column M and copy the Time Difference Value to column O.

Once lesser value has been copied to new cell, logic is now:
a) move down 1 cell in column and if that value is greater than original cell, then extract that value and copy that value one cell to column M and copy the Time Difference Value to column O.
b) move down 1 cell in column and if that value is less than original cell, then move up again, until find greater value than original cell. Once we find value greater than original cell, extract value and copy value one cell to column M and copy the Time Difference Value to column O.

At any point in the process if we find a value equal to the starting cell, we ignore it and the logic continues. The logic continues flip flopping like this to the last value of column G.

OR
Here's the logic now in reverse I need:

If after moving down 1 cell of original cell, the value is less than original cell then logic has the following 2 outcomes:

a) move down 1 cell in column and if that value is greater than original cell, then extract that value and copy that value one cell to column M and copy the Time Difference Value to column O..
b) move down 1 cell in column and if that value less than original cell, then move up again, until find greater value than original cell. Once we find value greater than original cell, extract value and copy value one cell to column M and copy the Time Difference Value to column O.

Once greater value has been copied to new cell, logic is now:
a) move down 1 cell in column and if that value is less than original cell, then extract that value and copy that value one cell to column M and copy the Time Difference Value to column O.
b) move down 1 cell in column and if that value is greater than original cell, then move up again, until find lesser value than original cell. Once we find value lesser than original cell, extract value and copy value one cell to column M and copy the Time Difference Value to column O.

Again, at any point in the process if we find a value equal to the starting cell, we ignore it and the logic continues. The logic continues flip flopping like this to the last value of column.

Once all the Break Points and Time Difference between Break Points are extracted for each value in column G, the AVERAGE, STDEV and MAX values of column O are calculated in column Q, R and S.

There is a loop that controls the execution of the core logic until the last value in column G. In the macro I’ve hardcoded last row being 9171, but I’d like the Macro to figure out what the last row is automatically.

I know this description is a bit long but I’ve worked for many hours on getting it work properly. I just need some help to make it run much faster. I hope someone can help me out on this. I have the right logic, just need the speed now and I really can’t figure it out.

Attached is a sample files demonstrating showing how the logic to flips back and forth as moving down the column starting in cell G200.

The sample shows the results first 4 loops (Rows 200 to 203). The values in M and O are the results of the fourth loop.

Again, assistance is very much appreciated because I've taken this as far as I can with my limited experience.

EDIT - I can embed the Macro, but it'll probably much easier to actually see it in the sample file.

## Formula In Lower Table To Fill In The Missing County Cells

Sep 1, 2009

I am looking for a formula that I can use in the lower table to fill in the missing County cells, based on the values in the Town/Zip columns on the top table (I apoligize for the crudeness):

CountyTownZipAbleTownA00000AbleTownB00001AbleTownC00002BravoTownD00003BravoTownE00004CountyTownZipMemberTownD00003BlackTownC00002FrankTownA00000GreeneTownB00001JonesTownA00000SmithTownC00006ThomasTownE00004White

This would consist of hundreds of Zips and Towns and this is just an abbreviated mock up.

## Only Allow Upper/Lower Case Not All Upper Or All Lower

Oct 8, 2008

Is there a data validation that will not allow all upper case or all lower case characters?

For examples:

Allow:
John Doe
101A N Woodbine Street

Disallow:
JOHN DOE
101A N WOODBINE STREET

Disallow:
john doe
101a n woodbine street

Or perhaps formatting that would convert the words to upper/lower case?

Or, I would be interested in VBA if it is the only way.

## Promt Warning Msg If Certain Cell Value Is Lower Then Another

Mar 5, 2008

i wanted to know if there is a way which i can so that would tell excel if a certain cell value is lower then another it would give a msg
for example

Cell A1 - 5
so if cell A2 is less then five and a macro is clicked then the macro would give a warning msg hence ending the macro

## Conditional Formatting If Lower Than Cell By 1 Or More?

Oct 7, 2013

I want to have some cells with conditional formatting.

The case here is date.

I have a given range of cells which will take on date. I will select all of these and will creat conditional formatting so that if the date is less than 2 days or more, have font colour change to red.

Now, the current date will be refered on a single cell.

I have done =(\$C\$3-2) and it works but this does not account for anything older than 2 days.

What am I missing here? How do I do or less then?

## Formula: Higher, Lower Or The Same To A Specific Cell Value

Aug 24, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that I am using to track competitor retail pricing
The problem is that I have a list of values and I want to be able to show how many of these values are either higher, lower or the same to a specific cell value. However one complexity that I have is that some of the competitors do not have values for all records (i.e. some are blank) and I want to discount these from the counting.

## Cell Based On Lower Upper Case

Oct 20, 2009

I've got a column of data that I need to split into further columns, the only way of identifying the split from the data is if a lower case character appears next to an upper case character.

For example, a cell in column A could look like;

Computer ProductsDrivesDVDExternal
And I'd need to split that out to cover columns A B and C with

Computer Products / Drives / DVDExternal
I'd need to do that for all the cells in column A.

## Copy Formulas Across: Get A Little Black Plus-sign In The Lower Right Corner Of The Cell

May 11, 2009

When I try to copy formulas across do I get a little black plus-sign in the lower right corner of the cell, when I point to it. I can then drag the plus-sign to the the area where I want to copy the formula. This plus-sign has now disappeared.

## Auto Upper+lower Limits When Data Cell Empty

Jan 1, 2009

I have a table that I use to generate about 20 graphs. The lower and upper limits can be manually altered in the table. If the user leave those 2 cells empty, I want the upper and lower limits be determined by default by Excel. So that the limits don't have to be entered for every graph in order for the graphs to be generated without any debugging error.

With ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue)
.MinimumScale = y1Lower
.MaximumScale = y1Upper
.MinorUnitIsAuto = True
.MajorUnitIsAuto = True
.Crosses = xlAutomatic
.ReversePlotOrder = False
.ScaleType = xlLinear
.DisplayUnit = xlNone
End With
where
y1Lower = .Cells(i, j + 9)
y1Upper = .Cells(i, j + 10)

## Excel 2010 :: Formula To Determine If Duplicate Values Exist In Single Column (excluding Empty Cells)

Jun 29, 2012

1 workbook, 2 worksheets (or tabs). On tab 1, I want a formula/alert that tells the user if any duplicate values exist in Column A of tab 2

Tab 2, Column A, has Unique ID's (6 digit numeric values)

The user manually inputs the ID's on new rows in Column A

Row 1 is reserved and in use for something else
Row 2 is my header, so cell A2 says "ID"
Row 3-623 currently contain unique ID's

When the user inputs a new ID into cell A624, then they return to Tab 1, I want my formula/alert on Tab 1 to tell the user that they have duplicates in Column A of tab 2. I know the Conditional Formatting, but if the user copies in 100 new values, they won't necessarily see the highlighted cells. My tab 1 is my "checks and balances" and the last place the user is suppposed to look to ensure that they haven't created any duplicate ID's. If the user sees a warning message that says duplicates exist, then I'll tell them that they need to look at column A (for cells that have been conditionally highlighted).

One issue that I'm running into with the conditional highlighting is that I want cells A3:A1048576 to already have the conditional formatting - this way when the user inserts a value into Cell A624, then A625, etc they conditional formatting is already there. Right now with data in cells A3:A623, cells A624:A1048576 are all highlighted with the Red/Bold Red Font (which is okay I guess), but ideally it would be nice to not count 2+ empty cells as duplicates and I'll have to have my formula on Tab 1 not include the blank cells.

I DO NOT want to use the Remove Duplicates feature of Excel 2010. If I remove them I could be removing data in columns B, C, D, etc that belong to the Unique ID. I just need the user to be told in Tab 1 that they DO have duplicates and I'll train the user how to research this and fix it.

The reason I want to look for duplicates in the entire Column A is because the list of Unique ID's will grow over time.

## Macro To Find A Cell Containing Text /select Range Offset / Cut And Paste To Lower Rows?

Feb 4, 2014

I am trying to find a macro that can search a sheet for any cell that contains the text "Not on AOI" selects a range that contains that cell, 81 rows below, and 2000 columns to the right, then cuts the selection and pastes it 162 rows below the original cell where the text was found. What's hard is that the number of columns between the "Not on AOI" cells is variable.

I'm very new to excel macros and the parts I think I've put together are:

Cells.Find("Not on AOI", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:= _
xlFormulas, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:= _
xlNext, MatchCase:=True).Activate

## Lower Case To CAPS

Oct 6, 2009

I have looked in conditional formatting, but do not see a way to change lower case to all caps. Is there a way to do this so that when someone types in a cell it returns all caps instead of leaving it in lower case?
