Excel 2010 :: Delete Unwanted Character In VBA

May 15, 2012

I'm using excel 2010. I'm working with columns of values where most of the values are numbers - which is fine, and there are some numbers that have a "p" at the start of them.

e.g. Column has 49, 52.2, p56.7, 34

OK, I want to preserve the 56.7 but I want to delete the "p". I'm thinking I've got a mental block as to how to delete the unwanted "p"s but I can't think of how to do it at the moment! My code goes as follows:

If Left(Cells(1,1),1) = "p" then
'delete the "p" and leave the remaining number in tact
End if

Excel 2010 :: How To Hide Unwanted Values Created By Formulas

Apr 16, 2014

I am trying to create an inventory list that automatically updates the supply quantity when items are taken away from inventory. I have created entry cells where the quantity of items taken out of inventory can be entered (example, cell F2 of the attachment), and the new overall inventory count is adjusted accordingly for each stock of items (example, cell B3). These automated adjustments are repeated for each subsequent row for every time items have been taken from inventory and recorded.

I managed to get it to do what I originally intended with exception of the fact that it still present values on rows where there were no activity - or quantity of items taken from out of inventory (row #6 and beyond of the attachment). Is there a way of "hiding" these values without removing the formula, or possibly set conditional formatting where no values are displayed if no changes in inventory has been entered?

Unwanted Character, Can Not Search And Replace

Dec 18, 2007

I have a sheet that I often have to edit and import into SQL database.

I have no control over the format of the sheet given to me and it seems that something has changed causing me the following problem.

When I try to import the Data itís showing ten times as many items than are actually there.

The problem I think is in a text column. Iíve tested this by using an old column from a previous sheet and pasting this into the new sheet and I can import it ok.

What I seem to have is a rectangular box character but Iím not sure what it is.
I can copy and past it into Notepad as it is, but pasted into Word it seems to be a carriage Return.

So whether itís an actual charter or not Iím not sure.

Are there any tools out there so I can hover over characters in Excel to see what it is! So at least I can be sure what Iím trying to Search and Replace?

Excel 2010 :: Nth Character In A String - Parsing Shortcut?

Feb 1, 2013

I have an Excel sheet with lots of shortcuts in the first column. It's the entire shortcut, including the .lnk extension.

What I need to do is to be able to parse out the string to make the shortcut human readable when I create the hyperlink. I'm saving the output as HTML for a user to open these shortcuts. It's on an internal LAN & secure. Using various versions of Excel (2010, 2007 & 2003, predominately the first). Trying to make an ugly, 140+ character shortcut into a more readable form for web navigation purposes.

Up to a point, the shortcuts are similar:
a123meworkfolder1folder2folder3shortcut1.lnk
a123meworkfolder1folder4folder5shortcut1.lnk
a123meworkfolder1folder6folder7shortcut1.lnk
a123meworkfolder1folder8folder9shortcut1.lnk

but, later on, they vary from that point out.

a123meworkfolder1folder10folder10Afolder11shortcut1.lnk
a123meworkfolder1folder_12folder12Afolder12Bshortcut1.lnk

The strings are the same up to the 7th occurrence of the "" character, but after that, the foldernames start to change & the shortcut may be down a level (an extra folder) or more. Also, the lengths of the strings change as well, so I can only do positional parsing up to a point.

Excel 2010 :: Increase Character Limit In Text Box That Is Based On Formula?

Mar 7, 2012

I have a text box that is set to "=B1". B1 is a cell from an Access table import with memo format. The text memo is long, probably on average between 1000-2000 characters. I have set up the text box to automatically resize for the text, but the text stops at what I assume is 255 characters, even though cell B1 displays the entire memo.

How can I set it up so that this text box (or any other similar shape) displays the text and retains its resize/wrap property?

This is done in Excel 2010.

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.

I have a spreadsheet that i manually edit each and everyday e.g.

For everything that doesnt equal EM, LN, LW and TH in column A, everything should be deleted in column B.

For the remaining EM, LN, LW and TH, i would then like it to delete / (forward slash and all characters after this) so that this would make my life easier.

Delete Unwanted Rows Based On Value In Cells?

Sep 28, 2011

I am aware this is probably very simple, but I haven't been able to find a usable macro yet. I would like the data in the workbook that is not "Tuesday" (column L) and is not "3" or "4" (column I) to be deleted. All rows that have "Tuesday" and either "3" or "4" should not be deleted. Each row that is not deleted must have Tuesday in column L. All other cells are blank intentionally. The workbook will remain the same titled WKBK1 (no need to put the output data in a separate workbook nor separate spreadsheet).

Do you know what the macro would be so I don't have to copy and paste a formula over a large number of cells?

WKBK1
A B C D E F G H I J K L 2

Excel 2010 :: Cannot Delete A Range Name

Nov 28, 2013

Workbook contains a number of named ranges where the name is no longer used. I wish to remove the name assigned but not the actual range of referenced cells. When using Name Manager to try and delete the name the Delete button is greyed out and not available. Workbook is being heavily modified from its original form used by another. Is this possibly from a protected area from prior user? However, I have not had a problem creating new worksheets, cell ranges, etc. Also, even for new ranges I create I am not able to delete the name as the Delete button is greyed. What is going on and how can I delete just the unused range names? Version is Excel 2010.

I have some code that worked perfectly in Excel 2007 but crashes Excel 2010.

For i = LR To 2 Step -1
If Cells(i, 15) = "Delete" Then Rows(i & ":" & i).EntireRow.Delete
Next i

For info., both screen updating and calculation are already both set to manual.

Excel 2010 :: If Cell Contains Red Text In Column Then Delete Row?

I'm using Excel 2010). I have column I, which is the sum of columns A and B (first and last names of patrons), and I have used conditional formatting to identify all duplicates in column I with red text. I would now like a macro to find red text in column I and then delete the corresponding rows.

I've been looking around on the web for a while and have cobbled together this code stolen from other people's macros:

[Code] ....

When I run it, I get the following error:

Run-time error '1004':Application-defined or object-defined error

Excel doc is called "stupid mailing list.xlsm", sheet I want to run the macro on is called "voters".

Excel 2010 :: How To Delete Rows Based On Cell Value

Sep 23, 2011

I have a massive spreadsheet (ca.110 000 rows [excel 2010). I need to cut this monster by deleting all the cells that do not have a certain cell value within them.

Say that in my column A there are different entries (text type). I would like to delete the ones that do not match the following criteria:

"mytextascriteria*", where * somehow stands for the rest of the string.

Strictly speaking I can only determine beggining of the string I want to perserve but the values at the end of that string are changing.

I found the thread about deleting entire row based on a cell value here:
Delete entire row based on one cell?

but I couldn't quite work out how to apply it in my scenario....

Otherwise is completely pointless to do it manualy with these amout of records.
