how return a true/false based on a cell containing a string (text) vs a value?

I have a column where most cells are blank, some contain text, and others contain dates. I would like to select and manipulate only the ones that contain dates (or values).

Windows 7, Excel 2007. a formula to find the next lowest sequential number within a group.

Here's an example data set, which represents transactions by date and category:

Col A is a user entered Date which will not be in chronological order (unfortunately a sort is not an option)Col B is a user entered CategoryCol C is a formula that gives the chronological sort order based on the date.

The formula in C2:C9 is =COUNT($A$2:$A$9)-(RANK(A2,$A$2:$A$9)+COUNTIF($A$2:A2,A2)-1)+1Col D is a formula to determine if the row is the first chronological transaction within the Category

The array formula in D2:D9 is =IF(MIN(IF($B$2:$B$9=B2,$C$2:$C$9))=C2,"Y","")

This might not be a necessary column, but can be used as a helperCol E is where I would like a formula to give the next lowest value in Col C for the Category in Col B (the order number in Col C for the previous transaction within the same category).

I have entered in the values that the formula should return in Col E in the table below

A

B

C

D

E

[Code]...

If the current line is the first transaction of the category, the formula should return the value in Col C for that line (so E2 would equal the value in C2, which is 2).

So the first part of the formula could be straightforward, using the helper column:

=IF(D2="Y",C2,

Here's the tricky part: If it's not the first occurrence of the category, then it should return the value of Col C for previous transaction (or the next lowest number in Col C that is within the same category).

E3 would return 4, since the previous transaction for Category A was line 9

C3 = 6, and of all the values of Col C for Category A (2, 4, 6, 8), 4 is the next lowestE4 would return 6, since the previous transaction for Category A was line 3 C4 = 8, and of all the values of Col C for Category A (2, 4, 6, 8), 6 is the next lowestE5 would return 1, since it is the first transaction in Category BE6 would return 1, since the previous transaction for Category B was line 5 C6 = 5, and of all the values of Col C for Catebory B (1, 5, 7), 1 is the next lowestEtc.

I'm thinking I need an array formula to find the minimum value within the category, where that value is less than the value of Col C in the current line. Just not sure how to write that...

I have two lists, one that is 99,000 lines and the other is 150. I am trying to find out where the word(s) in the list of 150 is present in the list 99,000.

1st list of 99,000 is in Sheet1 A1-A99000 and the second list is in Sheet2 B1-B150.

The caveat is that in column A there is additional words in that cell so you can not do a simple vlookup, because there may or may not be an exact match.

I have been stuck for hours and the best i can get is to use the match function but it is not working because it is not exact. Last thing i want to do is use the CTRL F key to lookup all the words.

I have two data columns: the first is a list of the last 100 calendar dates, and the second is an ON/OFF (or 1/0 if you prefer) value corresponding to each date. If the last value in the second column list is ON, I want to find how many continuous days the value has been ON for. If the last value in the second column is OFF, I want it to return a zero. Note that in the 100 day span of data, the value may switch between ON and OFF several times, but I only want the continuous, uninterrupted ON days at the end of the date range.

View 8 Replies View RelatedI am working with data where I need to extract a 10-digit number from a string. Where the 10-digit number is in the string varies, so I can't use a simple left/len combination. Here's an example below:

Something and email@me.com 1234567890 stuff thingsThe formula I am using now is this:

=MID(F4,MIN(FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},F4&"0123456789")),10)

This finds the first number in a string and returns that number and the next 9 digits for a total of a 10-digit string (so it would return 1234567890). However, I run into an issue when I have a string that has numbers in the email address.

So this:

number in email123@me.com 1234567890 exampleWould return this:

123@me.comIs there a way to modify the formula above so that it searches for 10 consecutive numbers and not just the first number in a string?

I have this formula, ( which i found the basis of on a You tube video and Richard Scholar was accredited with improving the soloution)

=SUMPRODUCT(--ISNUMBER(F4:AH4)*10^{-29,-28,-27,-26,-25,-24,-23,-22,-21,-20,-19,-18,-17,-16,-15,-14,-13,-12,-11,-10,-9,-8,-7,-6,-5,-4,-3,-2,-1})

I vaguely recall someone telling me there is a way to "eval" or run a string as a formula.

For example, suppose I have a text string 0.15*b15

I want to process it as if it was =0.15*b15

I have the following code which compares a string between two sheets. First sheet is 'data', second is 'saw'. I'm trying to copy an array of numbers (energy consumption for each hour of the day) based on machine ID and date (hence the compare string). How to modify it so it will copy the array of 24 number, not just the first number?

I have a few worksheets 'saw', drill, lathe. So I am using ActiveSheet, so I can run the same macro as all data is in the 'data' worksheet.

Sub test_copy()

Dim a, i As Long, txt As String

a = Sheets("data").Range("a1").CurrentRegion.Value

With CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")

.CompareMode = 1

I am using Excel 2007.

I am trying to use ADO via VB6 to find a specific input in row A of my excel sheet.

I then want it to return the Column and Row to me separately.

I have a code I already use for returning specific values from cells:

Code:

Function Look(ClosedWorkbookFullName As String, _

SheetName As String, RangeAddress As String) As Variant

Dim conn As Object, rs As Object, SQL As String

Set conn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

Set rs = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")

[Code] ......

Now I want something like this I can use as a function, but it obviously needs tweaks.

I am working on a sheet that will copy a specified number of sheets, rename them, set a cell within the equal to a cell from another sheet and (the problem) set cells on my input sheet equal to cells in the newly copied and renamed sheets.

I want the cells in sheet "Data Input" to look something like "='newsheet'E26"

I can make it return the actual number in the cell and return the formula in the cell, but not make the cell in "Data Input" reference the cell in the new book.

Here is what I have:

Code:

Sub CopySheetsTest()

Dim i As Integer

Dim wks As Worksheet

I have the below data. I'm trying to create a lookup that would return the Month and Year in another cell. For example, I have in another cell the min of all the data, I want to get the month/year in the cell below it with lookups. I've tried INDEX/MATCH, but not getting the results I want.

I need code for a search box function, that returns the information recorded in a cell for example, "Barcelona" or "London" etc), instead of the location of the cells.

I will need to narrow it down to search only the information in the following columns:

Sheet2

I2:J10932

I am totally new to VBA coding and have stumbled my way through a few things, but everything I have searched for so far has had at least one error when transposing to Excel.

I am running Excel 2007.

I have two columns with team abbreviations, one simply says whether they are AL or NL the other is the result of a search with multiple occurrences of the team name. I need to match the long list with the short and put the column header AL or NL in the adjacent cell.

I'm using Excel 2007

The last formula I tried was =INDEX($AY$1,MATCH(BB2,$AY$2:$AY$15,0),0)

The screen shot actually just part of the sheet copied since the screen shot look like a broken html page Ok I give up. I copy and paste a jpg it turns into code, I copy and paste the spreadsheet and formatting vanishes, I don't have a URL for the picture... I did look at FAQs and didn't find picture rules but I will look again. Meanwhile. . .

It's just six columns of data. The short list is in AY from AY2 : AY15

The long list is in BB from BB2:BB505

The column header "AL" is in AY1 and NL is in AZ1

currently using Excel 2007 with Windows Vista.

I currently have a worksheet where I want to input a date (G2) and a rank value (H2) ranging from 1 to 4. The header value (B1:E1) corresponding to the date (A2:A4) and the rank (B2:B4) should be returned to I2 (currently returns #NA).

Using formula: =INDEX($B$1:$E$1,MATCH(H2,INDEX($B$2:$E$4,MATCH(G2,$A$2:$A$4),)))

which I found under: Find row, find value, then return column heading

However, the above formula does not seem to work with my date order or recurring data values of 1 to 4 over the 3 rows.

The worksheet layout is as follows:

Date

A

B

C

D

Date

Rank

Header

[code]....

The return value under Header should be C.

I have reversed the order of the dates and put sequential numbers in B2:B4 as plug variables and the above formula will return the correct Header value but I need the formula to work with the current date order and repeating rank values of 1 to 4 in B2:B4. Do not wish to use VBA.

I use the following formula in excel 2007 (and it's working perfectly in 2007) but this formula does not work if I work with the same file in excel 2003 ...w why and what I have to adjust?

=IF(SUMPRODUCT(--(C5='sheet 2'!B:B);--(C13='sheet 2'!C:C);ROW(B:B))=0;"not found";INDEX('sheet 2'!D:D;SUMPRODUCT(--(C5='sheet 2'!B:B);--(C13='sheet 2'!C:C);ROW(B:B));1))

(I'm working with the dutch excel version so it might be that ";" must be ",")

I deal with a rather large excel database (the range is A1:AV168266) that contains customer information. Some of these various customers are affiliated with a group called "ascend" and I need to be able to filter all my list by every customer affilliated with Ascend. The trouble is that the word "ascend" can appear in 8 different columns and usually when it appears in one column it doesn't appear in the others and their can also be more text in the cell beyond the word "ascend". I want to create a formula that will simply look for the word "ascend" in any cell of a row and return a result I can filter by. I will be putting the formula in column AW and put it in all 170,000 rows of that column, that way I can just filter by a single column.

I've played around with combining COUNTIF with SEARCH and MATCH with SEARCH but nothing seems to work.

I am trying to auto fill one cell with one of several names using different values from another cell. Ex: when one of six numbers (100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105) in input in A2, I want B2 to display a name (Joe, Tom, Steve, Fred, Tyler, Todd) that corresponds to that number. Cells in columns A and B will be formatted as text. Using Excel 2007.

This is probably quite a simple request but here goes:-

=SUM(h2,e2-f2)

I would like excel to perform this calculation but only if another cell contains a date. I couldn't figure out how to do that so I added another column next to that cell and added =ISNUMBER(A8) to return a true or false statement. I was then going to hide this column but still refer to it.

I need to convert numbers to text in excel 2007. I have done it before in 2003, but can't seem to remember exactly what I used. I may have used some kind of conditional formatting, but not sure.

Here is an example of what I need.

If I type "7203" in a cell I want "Home Repairs" to appear. I have a list of words associated with a list of numbers and want to be able to type the number in a cell and have the word appear.

I am using Excel 2007 and importing a list of coordinates. The coordinates are in a text file and separated by commas, so I'm opening the file as a delimitted file. All of the coordinates import correctly except one. The value is supposed to 52530.6372, but Excel is automatically changing it to 52530.6371999999

If I manually type a "2" to replace the "1999999", it changes it back. If I type "3" it stays as a 3.

I added a round function to force it to round to 4 decimal places and that seemed to work until I then tried using the number with text commands. When I used an ampersand to insert the number into a text string, the additional decimal places are back, even with a round function!
