Excel 2003 :: Find And Replace Missing The Ability To Replace Values?

Feb 5, 2009

This problem has come up fairly frequently lately, and I'm not sure how to fix it, or if this is by design...but in Excel 2003 I can't seem to do a "Find and Replace" based on the value of a cell. I can do a find, based on cell value, but the moment I change to the replace tab, the "values" and "comments" are missing from the "look in" dropdown.

I've only noticed this when I'm trying to replace on a filtered list, so I'm not sure if that is part of the issue.

Perhaps an alternative way of arriving at the same goal. Basically I have a worksheet with a number of filtered columns. They are filtered just right, using custom filtering, and so I do not want to undo the filters. In some columns I have formulas that are returning #VALUE! errors. I'd like to replace all of these cells with NA.

Dec 1, 2005

I'm looking to simply delete certain words that are in cells, without having to delete rows, columns or the entire cell. I can use 'find and replace' and replace the particular word with a space, but I really want to delete the word. I'm using both Excel 2003 and 2000.

Excel 2010 :: Replace Function Missing Strings In Merged Range?

Jun 11, 2014

I've recently been making a macro in visual basic that loops through all my excel files and replaces an old company name to a new company name and It's working great, well except for one thing... It always misses one string in the file and it leaves me with 90% of the file corrected. I think that the string might be a part of a merged range so Range.Find is not able to find it. I was suggested to use this code:

Because that's the code that is generated when using the replace function in MS Excel 2010, but I keep getting syntax errors?

Find And Replace To Not Replace Characters Found As Wildcards?

Jul 2, 2013

I recently became owner of a spreadsheet with some issues, and I am trying to make it useful. Each row has a URL of a blog post, and I want to extract the date from it (which is present in each URL) while getting rid of the rest of the URL. I was able to get rid of everything up to the year (which comes first), but then the URL continues, for example, 2013/05/16/the-rest-of-the-url/ and I would like to just have 2013/05/16 remain.

I am trying to use find and replace with the find box reading 2013/??/??/*/ and replacing it with 2013/??/?? which effectively erases everything else in the url, but leaves ?? instead of the numbers. Is there any way to have it so that it keeps whatever was in the original box?

In particular, I am trying to write code to break to an error message when the value or string searched for isn't found in the find / replace.

Excel 2003 :: Search Condition And Replace Program (VBA Coding)

Nov 12, 2011

I have two work sheets where I have data.

Sheet1 contain daily input table which as follows:

Code:
Namesalary Bonus Check
XX1000 2 FN
XY900 1 NA
YY1100 2 FN
ZY1500 3 DP
ZZ1250 2 FN
AA1050 2 NA
AZ 950 1 FN

Sheet2 have table where all the information is saved. So we can say this is database of sheet1. Which store every day information of sheet 1.

Code:
SALARY DATABASE
Name SalaryBonus

What I want to do is that ---it copy all the data which fullfile condition FN and move to the Sheet 2 which is salary database. Two important things to check is that. IF name already exists in the sheet 2 then it replace old info with the new one. Second thing is to sort the whole table(Salary database-sheet 2) according to A-Z (Name column). I use office 2003. I hope I provide all the information.

Find And Replace COLOR Of Values?

Jul 27, 2013

Is there a way to find specific values and change their colors all at once in xls?

For example, if it looked like:

1 4 5 3 7
4 2 6 3 1
5 9 2 6 4

And if I tell it to change every 4 to red, it'd be like:

1 4 5 3 7
4 2 6 3 1
5 9 2 6 4

Or changing the cells' color would be ok, too.

Find And Replace Different Values In A Range Of Cells

May 8, 2008

I would like to be able to replace all cell values in a range of 20c by 20r (i.e. 400 cells). In all cases the condition would be the same (find all cells with a value greater than than zero), but then replace with different values.

e.g. Cells with value >0 in range CX119:DQ138 replace with "NT", then cells with value of >0 in range DR119:EK138 replace with "NU"

I thought you could do it with find and replace by just selecting that range of cells but can't see how to set the conditional >0 bit.

Find & Replace Values Based On Condition

Aug 21, 2007

I have a simple problem I am trying to find a set a values on a column and what to replace once found with the first 5 most left characters. Example:

in column A I can have text and numbers; the numbers that I want to find are in the following format xy:zw / xy:zw on each case the values can be from 0 to 9 so this is tons of posible combinations, I been trying to use **:** ? **:** but I don't get none. This is what I am doing

Set target = Sheets("Sheet1"). Range("A1:A9000")
For Each cell In target
If cell.Value = "**:** ? **:**" Then cell.Value = "00.00"
Next cell

A example would be 02:47 / 03:15 the next row could have 03:15 / 04:09
and so on however I could have text in some rows. In reality I would like to find and replace the cell.value with the Left 5 characters if the cell contains ANY value maching that format. Text in that column will never have that format combination

Find Values On One Tab And Replace Data From Adjacent Cell

Apr 3, 2014

I have one sheet in my workbook called 'mapping' which has a list of codes on it, the length of which will vary on a periodic basis.

I have another fairly large sheet on the workbook called 'data' (around 2000 rows) that will also vary in size. I want to do a search on the data tab for each code that is contained on column 4 of the mapping tab and if the code is found, enters the corresponding value from column 1 of the mapping tab to the cell 6 columns to the left of where the code was found on the data tab (cols H and B in this case).

The issue I have is the codes maybe contained more than once on the data tab so I need the find/replace command to search the whole of the data tab and perform the task each time.

Find And Replace Multiple Values Within Individual Cells?

Mar 13, 2014

So I have a list of organizations in Column A, with multiple names (anywhere from 0 to 50 names) for each org. in Column B.

Org
Names
Company A
Brown, Jones, Smith, West

[Code]...

I want to do a find and replace for all of Column B, where all the names are replaced with their respective color values. If possible, I'd like this to all happen with the individual cells (so for example, B3 might go from "Brown, Jones, Smith" to "Red, Red, Blue").

If that's not possible, I could divide all the names into individual cells and then find and replace.

VBA - Find / Replace Excel Variable In Word

Apr 7, 2012

I have never used VBA in word before, so I am assuming I am making it more complicated than it needs to be. I have a macro that stores 20 excel values as variables, then opens up a word document. I want to replace values in word with my values in excel. I keep getting an error with the replace part. I do not want to use bookmarks or mail merge. MSWord is a reference in excel VBA.

Code that stores excel variables (Example: Var1=Data1 and Var2=Data2)...
'Opening up the correct word document
Dim WdApp As Object, WdDoc As Object
Set WdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
WdApp.documents.Open ThisWorkbook.Path & "" & Range("D1").Value & ".doc"
WdApp.Visible = True

Excel Script - Find And Replace Data

Oct 16, 2013

I am looking to make an excel script that can find and replace data.

Situation:
A--------B-----------C
Cat------Dog------Banana
Dog------Fish------Apple
Fish------Cat-------Orange

So the macro would look at the data in a cell in column B, then look at the adjacent cell in column C, and replace all instances of that data in column A with what if found in C. So the results would be:

A------------B-----------C
Orange------Dog------Banana
Banana------Fish------Apple
Apple--------Cat-------Orange

But that's not all, I would like it to not change cells in A that already have been changed once! (I'm trying this with changing the background colour)

I am at a complete loss and need to find and replace over 3000 items.

Excel 2011 :: How To Find ColorA And Replace It With ColorB

I can't find the "Advanced Options" for Find and Replace that might have allowed me to specify a color change.

Excel 2010 :: Find And Replace Within Specific Column?

Oct 1, 2012

I have an excel workbook where some sheets have a column called "Name" in Row 3. The column where "Name" appears shifts based upon other criteria so it's not set within 1 specific column.

The real data for the "Name" column starts in Row 5. Is it possible to create a macro that looks in Row 3 for "Name", then once it finds that column, it does a find and replace from Row 5 to the end of the data and replaces every space with a ^.

For example, if I have:

Row 3 Name
Row 4
Row 5 John Smith
Row 6 Jane Doe
Row 7 John Doe
Row 8 Jane Smith

I'd like the data to become:

Row 3 Name
Row 4
Row 5 John^Smith
Row 6 Jane^Doe
Row 7 John^Doe
Row 8 Jane^Smith

I'm using Excel 2010 if that impacts anything.

Replace Command Missing Cells With More Text

Mar 6, 2007

I've written a very simple script to replace carriage return characters with <br> tags (so I can use the output in html pages) - however for some reason when I loop the script down the cells, it ignores certain cells and works perfectly on the rest.

The only 'variable' I can spot is that the ones it misses tend to be longer cells with more text (the one's that failed were 938 characters and 910 I think).

Can anyone tell me if there is a limit on how big a cell VBA can process and if so, how I can work around this? Is it possible to load and parse each character one by one in VBA or something?

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
For Each cl In Worksheets("CREDIT (GENERAL)").Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants, 23)
cl.Replace What:=Chr(10), Replacement:="<br>", SearchOrder:=xlByColumns
Next cl
End Sub
