Dynamic Names Pointing To Blank-Delimited Blocks Of Data

Nov 10, 2012

I have a column of data that is blank-delimited into five blocks. The size of each block will vary, since the data comes from a web query. A blank (empty) cell tells me where a block ends and the next one begins.

I would like to set up five dynamic names (e.g. Block_1, Block_2 and so on), each of which will reference the corresponding segment of data.

What would be an elegant way of defining the dynamic names?

Add Names To Blocks

Oct 9, 2008

In a worksheet I have (not equal) blocks of data. In column A there is the projectnumber, in columns B-K there are data. Projects are devided by an empty row. All rows in some block have in column A the same value (projectnumber).

What I need is the following: I would like to add names to that blocks. The name must be equal to the projectnumber.

Table/reference/data Pointing

Apr 4, 2009

I would like to make an excel worksheet that can do the following:

At the beginning of the worksheet I have a reference block w/ 2 rows, 4 columns of number of 1-8 (randomly, input manually). Then, I would have the same block (i will call these member blocks)(2r, 4c) repeatedly vertically (maybe 10~12 times etc...) and these block will have 2 rows in between to seperate each other.

Then, right on top of each of the member block (the row above the member block) there will be input space where i will manually input numbers (4 at most ~ also 1-8). Each of the number i manually put in will place into member block with its location reference to the reference block at the beginning. (and each number will be highlighted in one color, so 4 colors are needed.) Finally there will be several of these on a page. attached is a sample of what i kinda want but they are all input manually.

Compare Blocks Matrix Of Data

Aug 29, 2006

I have the follwing data in A1:T17


I want to compare the first set of 20 numbers (A1:T1) with the second set (A2:T2) and check how many numbers match. ** If the matched numbers
are >=10 ** then list them to the right of cell W1. In this example, 10 numbers matched are 4,9,10,21,35,47,64,72,74,75. List them in W1:AF1.

Now compare (A1:T1) with (A3:T3). In this example, 11 numbers matched 4,9,10,21,33,41,47,57,6,72,74 list them in W2:AG2.

Now compare (A1:T1) with (A4:T4). 10 numbers matched 3,4,10,11,21,32,33,35,60,69 list them in W3:AF3.

Compare (A1:T1) with (A5:T5). Here only 5 numbers matched 9,21,64,69,75 (Which is ** less than 10 ** - does not match the criteria) DO NOT LIST

Compare (A1:T1) with (A6:T6). 11 numbers matched, 3,4,7,10,21,33,37,47,57,69,75 list them in cell W4:AG4.


Sub Compare()

Dim r As Integer, rr As Integer, c As Integer, cc As Integer, opc As
Integer, opr As Long

opr = 1
For r = 1 To 16
For rr = r + 1 To 17
opc = 23
For c = 1 To 20
For cc = 1 To 20
If Cells(r, c) = Cells(rr, cc) Then
Cells(opr, opc) = Cells(r, c)
opc = opc + 1
End If
Next cc
Next r

End Sub
The above code runs fine but If I increase my rows from 17 to 1200 it takes 3 1/2 hours to complete. Can it be reduced?

Copy Data Range Blocks

Jan 8, 2008

I would like to copy specific cells (all in one block) to another worksheet, then do a bunch of other things with the data (these steps work already), then go back to the original worksheet and copy the next block of data, repeat about 50 times, then stop at the end of the list.

I can't attach a file as I can't get it under the file size limit but the rows to move (just to any worksheet in the workbook, from there I can manipulate and move as required) each time are row 1 plus all those pertaining to each subject group. So for group 1 it would be row 1 plus rows 6 to 28 - for group 2 row 1 plus rows 29 to 51 - group 3 row 1 plus 52 to 74 etc. If I can just get looping through chunks of data and moving them around under my belt

Sort Range Data Blocks

I have a list of data (as shown below under Input), which I would like to sort them according to their block number (as shown below under Output).

Picking Blocks Of Data To Copy From One Sheet To Another

Jul 22, 2014

I have a series of spreadsheets that represent the rosters of teams in a league. At the end of the league season, some teams qualify to advance to a final event, and some do not. I start with a file of all the teams for that level of competition. This list comes from a program that creates it's output in an excel '97-2003 format (and I can't change the way the data comes out of this program). I modify the data a bit by removing data from merged cells and rename that worksheet a 'Raw Data'. In the past I have manually copied and pasted the data for the teams that advance to a sheet called 'Roster Data'. I am hoping there is a way to automate this part of the chore.

There must be 6 blank lines between the team names on the 'Roster Data' tab, but some teams have more members than others, so they are not spaced the same on the 'raw data' tab. Is there a way to select teams from the 'Raw Data' tab and have only the selected teams show on the 'Roster data' tab, AND have the spacing become uniform?

Sort Records Within Data/Range Blocks

Apr 19, 2008

I have around 50,000 records in a data file within which groups of records are contained in blocks delineated by date/time. e.g.;


10/03/2008 13:15 a 100.0
10/03/2008 13:15 b 2.8
10/03/2008 13:15 c 50.5
10/03/2008 13:15 d 8.6
10/03/2008 13:15 e 32.5
10/03/2008 13:25 75.2 <-----Time change
10/03/2008 13:25 5.5
10/03/2008 13:25 16.5
10/03/2008 13:25 3.5


As you can see, while the file is ordered by date/time in Column A, the values in column E are randomly ordered.

My objective is to maintain date time order but sort the values in Column E into an ascending order within each block. So, for example, using the details above I would want it to look like;


10/03/2008 13:15 b 2.8
10/03/2008 13:15 d 8.6
10/03/2008 13:15 e 32.5
10/03/2008 13:15 c 50.5
10/03/2008 13:15 a 100.0
10/03/2008 13:25 3.5 <-----Time change
10/03/2008 13:25 5.5
10/03/2008 13:25 16.5
10/03/2008 13:25 75.2

Note that there is data in columns B to D which would need to be sorted in line with Column E. So, all records in the block, cols A to E are sorted to give the above order for each time block.

My problem is that I'm not sure whether a basic sort can do the job or whether a macro is needed. I'm using Excel 2003.

National Insurance Number Validation On Blocks Of Data

I have a spreadsheet where data is pasted on from spreadsheet supplied by various external companies. One of the main problems we're having when validating the data is an incorrect NI Number and I'm hoping to find a way of getting this automated.

What I would like to do is, when a block of text is pasted into our template, a block of code to look through the selection and check column S for a valid format NI no (eg AB123456C). I have some code (below) that works when changing an individual cell, but nothing that works when pasting in blocks of text.

Fill Series That Combines Data From 2 Sheets In Blocks Of 10

Jun 5, 2006

I have a spreadsheet with two sheets... Sheet1, and Sheet2, that I use as sort of a staging area to format info before bulk uploading to my product database. The products I'm working with at the moment have 10 subcategories below each of them. Sheet1 is the full product database listing. I place new subcategories in blocks of 10 that I plan to add to the database on Sheet2. Sheet2 also holds the default partial category names in cells A2-A11.

Part 1:

I am currently using the following formula on Sheet2, in column C to combine the category name value on Sheet1, with the default partial category name values on Sheet2 (A2-A11). I'll paste two blocks so you have a clear picture of what I mean by blocks of ten.

=CONCATENATE(Sheet1!B3407;" ";Sheet2!$A$2)
=CONCATENATE(Sheet1!B3407;" ";Sheet2!$A$3)

Delimited Data In Worksheet

Oct 29, 2009

I have a worksheet that has around 2000 rows each containing data as shown in the attached sample sheet. I want to replace all the squares (is this some form of delimiting or seperating character inserted as the data was imported?) with a space and leave the other data intact.

I've tried find & replace to do this without success, although editing each individual cell works. Please let me know as I need a way to do this for all cells at once as it would take an age to do each cell indivudually.

Tab Delimited Data From Web Page

Jan 1, 2008

I am trying to use VBA to manage invoice generation via an online service. The service is set up in such a way that the process cannot be made completely automatic, but I am trying to reduce it to as few manual steps as possible. Hence I am opening the Web Browser control in an Excel userform to streamline and guide the user's process. The invoice is generated as a Tab-delimited TXT file. I don't want to save the file to disk, and selecting 'Open' opens the file as a web page, rather than in Notepad or Excel.

One way or another this data needs to be transferred to a hidden Excel worksheet for further processing. So I am trying to devise a way to copy the data from the web page and paste it onto the Excel worksheet. Here is the relevant code from within the Web Browser's class module:

If URL Like "https://www.fedex.com/FedExMMA/downloadcenter.do*" Then
Application.Wait Now + TimeValue("00:00:01")
SendKeys "^a^c", False
Application.Wait Now + TimeValue("00:00:01")
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet3").Paste Destination:=ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet3"). Range("A1")
End If

The "^a^c" (control-A, control-C) part works correctly; if I interrupt the code at that point I can open Notepad and directly paste the invoice data. But pasting into Excel fails in a way that has me baffled. Instead of the invoice it pastes the previous contents of the clipboard; for instance the invoice number that I copy and paste in an earlier step. I can even run the code as written above, see the invoice number pasted into Excel, and directly open Notepad, type Control-V, and have the actual invoice pasted into Notepad! It is as if Excel's paste function accesses different clipboard data from other applications. So my brief question is: How do I get the data into Excel? The longer question is: Is there some step I have missed that specifies to Excel what clipboard data to paste?

Dynamic Path Names For External Links

Jun 18, 2008

I am designing a spreadsheet for work.

each of the people i work with have their own workbook with their name as the title, John Smith.xls.

There are about 20 of us on the team with their own workbook with the same design.

We record information on these weekly and so there are 20 files in the folder for Week 1, 20 in Week 2 etc.

I want to make a master spreadsheet with will collect all of the information on these sheets and list them on a master spreadsheet every week.

So the external data i am linking to is found in a location like

='C:SpreadsheetsWeek26[John Smith.xls]Sheet1'!$A$1

Here is my problem,

I need the 'Week 26' and the 'John Smith' to be changeable and preferabilly linked to a cell using the INDIRECT formula so I can change all references to Week 26, 27, 28 etc and also change the workbook name it is referencing.

I have attempted to do this in the following way

I broke down the pathname to seperate cells

Cell 1: 'C:Spreadsheets
Cell 2: A reference linking to a cell containing value: Week 26
Cell 3: A reference linking to a cell containing value: [John Smith.xls]
Cell 4: Sheet1'!$A$1

I then used the CONCATENATE formula to link these into a single cell as a text string.

I then tried to use INDIRECT to link to the filemane in the CONCATENATE cell.

This did not work.

I need a way to make parts of the filename variable and linked to one cell.

I also need to do this while the other workbooks are closed.

I have found some information on INDIRECT.EXT which as far as I can make out involves installing mods to Excel to make these work, I cannot do this as the spreadsheet will be used across our network and will eventually be used by thousands of users.

Convert Space-delimited Data To Columns

Jun 9, 2009

I have a software package that requires serial number effectively data to be entered in a particular format.

As this can cover hundreds of lines I would like to make it less tedious to enter, and as my MACRO knowledge is very basic.

The data starts off in format below in example 1. After the data is CUT from the .html or .pdf document and PASTE into EXCEL. I would like the MACRO to start by pressing an activate button within EXCEL,

The serial numbers always have four digits with single serial numbers being separated by spaces and ranges being separated by a hyphen with the odd carriage return depending on how many numbers there are.

I would like the data to end up in two separate columns as shown in example 2.

Example 1 (Starting format)
* indicates space
- indicates a range, this needs to be separated into two separate columns

2252*2254*2256*2257*2259*2272*2274-2276*2278*2280*2282*2284*2286-2641*2643-2681*2683-2712*2714-2717*2719*2721*2724*2726*2727*2729* 2733*2735 *2738*2739*2746

Select And Import Delimited Data File (ERA)

Feb 27, 2012

I need to summarize some data from multiple files but I can't seem to have the user select the file and import it.

It's a ERA(electronic remittance advice) 835 file that will import with the "Import Text File" routine. I've added the "GetOpenFileName" to it but apparently have not appropriately adjusted my "QueryTable.Add" routine.

I removed the .Refresh Backgroundquery:=False line as this was causing an error and this not SQL data.

The desired files have names like this: C123456.835.EDIPROCESSERPROCEEDED

My simpleton code reads:

Sub IMPORT_835()
' IMPORT_835 Macro
Dim InputFile As Variant

InputFile = Application.GetOpenFilename(Title:="Choose your file", _
FileFilter:="All Files (*.*), *.*")

[Code] ........

No data is imported, Why?
