Excel 2007 :: Need To Automate Find / Delete Process
Jan 9, 2014
I have two spreadsheets. one contains a master list of computer names. the other contains a list of computer names to be removed from the master list (exception list).
I need to go through the master list and remove any computer names that are on the exception list- for example, if 'computer1' is in the exception list, i have to find and remove 'computer1' from the master list.
The exception list is quite long, and I want to automate this process if possible. not sure how to achieve this.
Following the tips doesn't allow to remove a character.
I exported email addresses from Outlook and they have the following character ' in front of the email address.
Using Excel 2007.. it says :"check if your search formatting and criteria are defined correctly. If you are sure that matching data exists in this workbook, it may be on a protected worksheet. Excel cannot replace data on a protected worksheet"
So I made a new file, and copied and pasted the cells into the new spreadsheet.. same message.
Dont know if this is possible. I have a spreadsheet where cell A1 contains a value which is not fixed and can change daily, the value can increase and decrease. At present at each month-end I manually record the position of cell A1 at month end in cells C1 through C12 repsenting the 12 months of the year.
Example: A1 @ 31/01/07 = 50 therefore cell C1 = 50 A1 @ 28/02/07 = 45 therefore cell C2 = 45 and so on for 12 months
what I would like to do is automate this process to automatically capture the value at month end into cells "c" and once captured, the figure to remain absolute for that cell/month and to ignore changes in Cell A1 that may subsequently occur.
I'm trying to automate a process (just like everyone else), and it doesn't seem to be working for me. I have two Excel sheets. One sheet contains errors for disk drives and the other sheet contains the serial numbers of the disk drives. Five fields exist in both sheets. These fields are B (for Bus), E (for Enclosure), D (for Disk), Bus, and Disk. (B-E-D together and Bus-Disk are two ways of naming a drive.)
The serial number sheet has all info filled in. The error sheet does not. I won't to write a macro that will compare the B-E-D fields in the error sheet to those in the serial number sheet, and then copy and paste the corresponding Bus-Disk information into the error sheet. The reason I want to do this is because the error sheet will not contain all drives and be in random order. So it needs to be able to search through all the B-E-D fields every time to pull out the correct Bus-Disk numbers/letters.
Sub Insert_Bus_and_Disk() Set Sh1 = Worksheets(1) Set Sh2 = Worksheets(2) Dim CompareRange1 As Object Dim CompareRange2 As Object Dim CutRange As Object Dim CopyRange As Object....................
I have the office 2007 Suite.I have a small business, where i sell online mostly. I'm creating a simple spreadsheet using Excel 2007, a workbook that has simple financial statements.
I'm creating a list of customers along with what they order, what they paid, how they paid, (paypal, cheque) etc, The first column is the invoice number, and each is unique to each customer. I add as i get orders. so my list of invoices has the following fields as column headers
Invoice Number Customer Name, Paid by Paypal, Paid by Cheque, Amount, Cusotmer email, Customer address, There are more and i won't list them all. Now each time i send an order, i have to fill in the excel worksheet. I then create the invoice separately in Word 2007 which i print to send to the customer with the order in the mail. The third step is sending an email to the customer upon despatch, using Outlook 2007.
I don't want to use accounting software as that is too complicated for my simple little business. What i do want to do however is combine all three tasks instead of having to open different programs and copying and pasting between them. I'd like to be able to add the data to Excel either using a form (ideally) or direct, then i'd like to be able to click on the "customer email" field to send a confirmation email to the customer, and also to be able to have an automated invoice, either in excel or Word, which draws the information automatically for each invoice, so that i only have to print it.
At the moment i'm doing all 3 tasks separately, when i know they can be automated.
1. I have about 20 columns of data for each invoice, ideally i'd like to be able to enter them from a form as it gets cumbersome going through them all in Excel. The form could be either in Word or Excel, which would be easier?
2. Using the invoice number as the unique field, how can i create an invoice that would draw out the required fields from the Excel data automatically, just by clicking a button? I dont' mind using either Excel or Word, whichever is easier, and i do have Access too, but i don't know if i should use that, or not. I don't need to draw any other data. I only want to print invoices and send confirmation emails.
3. After printing the invoice and posting the order to the customer i sent them an email confirming. Again i have to manually enter or copy and paste data in the email, which i know could be automated, if i create a template, and have some fields that are automaitcally populated using the fields in the date already entered.
These fields ususally include the total paid, currency paid, address, name and how many ordered. All of this could be automated, but i'm not sure how to do it.
In any open (new or existing) workbook (Excel 2007), I cannot delete a column by right clicking the column header and highlighting the entire column. The "delete" word is greyed out and not selectable. I CAN however still delete a column by going to the "Cells" toolbar, then "Delete" pulldown menu, then "Delete Sheet Columns". Right clicking the column header is much simpler and easier.
BTW, I can still delete rows by both methods of right clicking on the row header and by going to the Cells toolbar.
I am using excel 2007 and when I right click on the worksheet tab, delete is greyed out. My workbook/sheet is not shared. I also had the problem owith row and columns. CommandBars("row").Reset sorted that out but I can't seem to sot out the tab issue.
I have a file that has an original file format .xls
I saved as .xlsx (I am using Excel 2007) with a different name so I could make changes to the new file without changing the original.
That turn off compatibility mode.... but it is still "shared". While it is shared I cannot delete a sheet. In fact, I really don't even want it to be shared. If the file is open, and someone else opens it, I want it to open as "read only". I cannot uncheck the "Allow changes by more than one user at the same time. This also allows workbook merging." checkbox because it is greyed out.
What i have is a workbook that can have multiple sheets. Sheet 2,3,4 (if there are) are a continuation of sheet 1. First 2 rows of sheet 1 are headers and the last row of the last sheet (can be 2,3, 4....) is a footer. There are 14 columns (A-N) in each sheet. Col "N" has set status and col I has set names.
What i am looking for is a macro that can perform the following actions in the the set order: 1) deletes all rows where status in col N is "closed" 2) delete all rows where name in Col I is "Many" 3) if there are multiple sheets copy all data in 1 sheet once above 2 are deleted 4) I want to update cell A2, C2, I2, M2 & N2 with Hostel, Direction,Name,Flight & Status respectively 5) Create a pivot table with all data (Col A-N & Row 2 to last) in a new sheet and call it Summary - Pivot I can then manually select how the pivot will look
Currently i am going through all sheets manually and filtering data. Using excel 2007
I'm using this code to find values of "FEP MHS" or "LSD MHS" in column S and if column S containes either of these values it deletes the entire row from the spreadsheet. I need this to work on a spreadsheet that runs on a daily basis and each day it contains a different number of rows. I have used this code to successfully delete most rows that contain these values in Column S but for some reason it does not delete all the rows, typically leaving 6 - 7 rows that contain these values. I'm using Excel 2007 I need code that finds the last row used and deletes the entire row if these values are present.
Dim CelRSLHMHSD As Range, RngRSLHMHSD As Range, iRSLHMHSD As Long Set RngRSLHMHSD = Columns("S").SpecialCells(xlConstants, xlTextValues) For iRSLHMHSD = RngRSLHMHSD.Count To 1 Step -1 If RngRSLHMHSD(iRSLHMHSD).Value = "FEP MHS" _ Or RngRSLHMHSD(iRSLHMHSD).Value = "LSD MHS" _ Then RngRSLHMHSD(iRSLHMHSD).EntireRow.Delete Next iRSLHMHSD
I have a public/shared Excel 2007 workbook on our network and someone colored an entire column yellow. When that happened, it increased the number of rows to over 655,000. I didn't know that was posible but they are there... The thing moves very slowly now and when I try to delete (45,000 lines at a time), I either get a error window telling me I don't have resources to perform the operation, or I do smaller chucks and after 30 minutes deleting lines, it will not save.
I would rather not have to recreate the whole workbook if I can delete the lines on this one page.
I have written a sub with the purpose of finding rows based on a critieria, copying the rows to another worksheet and deleting the original row.
Code: Sub MoveToIgangvaerende() ' ' Flytter opgaven til sheetet Igangværende projekter ' Dim i, j, Index As Integer Forfra: For i = -1 To 1000 If Sheets("Pipeline").Cells(3 + i, 20) = "Ja" Or Sheets("Pipeline").Cells(3 + i, 20) = "ja" Then
I get the error message "Method 'Delete' of object 'Range' failed" at the line "Sheets("Pipeline").Cells(3 + i, 18).EntireRow.Delete".
I'm working in Excel 2007 and need to move data from multiple rows to a single row if the ID matches.Below is sample data I would be working with. I want to move data from columns F-U to the right of the original data in the row above it. I would also like to delete the rows that had data moved.

This works fine on small data sets, but on larger data sets it gives me the error message, "Excel cannot complete this task with available resources". This happens even when I try to do the deletion manually (without VBA code). Clearly, the code itself is not the problem.
My document has about 250,000 rows and 2,500 columns. While this is big, it is significantly smaller than Excel's documented limit of 1,048,576 rows and 16,384 columns.
I am using Excel 2007. My computer has 2GB of RAM but even when I try it on a computer which has 8GB of RAM it gives me the same error. If I "ClearContents" instead of "Delete" it works fine. For my purposes, however, deletion is entirely necessary.
I have a excel 2007 workbook that has 5 sheets "MASTER" , "RED" , "WHITE", "GOLD" & "BLUE". There are 7 columns in each sheet and the master has about 8,000 rows . In column D of each sheet there is a unique number (approx. 8 - 10 digits ) that I would like to at the press of a command button search through sheets "RED" "WHITE" "GOLD" & "BLUE" against the unique numbers in the "MASTER" sheet and if there any duplicates numbers delete the entire row but leave all the data in the master sheet.
I have several sheets I use for MI and most have similar amounts of data in, ie, a tab for each month with out 15-20 columns and upto 10,000 rows, then a couple of summary sheets with filtering and calculations in.
One of my sheets is currently 16Mb, when the others are about a third of that, with similar amounts of data.
Is there a way to find what is causing the extra space to be taken in this sheet?
Or does this seem about right for the amount of data?
If I have a cell which begins with a few spaces and then has a character, how do I use the find function to see how many spaces until some character is present in the cell. The * does not work with this.
I am wanting to find rows that with unique values in the first column, and then take those rows and display them in a more readable format. The section titled input is an example of information that would be pulled from a query into Excel. The Desired Output section is how I would like the info to be displayed. If this is possible without VBA then that is even better.
