Excel 2010 :: If Cell Contains Red Text In Column Then Delete Row?
Mar 10, 2014
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:
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".
If possible, I'd like to be able to catch & handle the event of a User deleting a row (or potentially a column) from a specific Worksheet so I can then implement some automated "housekeeping processing" on other existing rows / columns.
I'm using XL 2010 so from what I've found so far it looks like I should possibly be using the Worksheet_Change() function, but beyond that I'm currently stuck.
I came across this excellent code here on this site but it does the opposite of what I need. This code deletes empty or blank rows if the cell in column I is blank. I actually need to delete the row if the cell in column I has a date or any data. Using Excel 2010.
Sub deleteBlankRows() On Error Resume Next Columns("I").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).EntireRow.Delete End Sub
I have a column of numbers that are already formatted as text. Some of the data is duplicate which is fine. It's like a list of 6000 numbers. I want to conditionally format the column so that I can fill the cell with a color as long as it stays the same number, but if it changes to a new number make it a different color. I don't need a lot of colors. Two is fine. TI have Excel 2010.
I'm using Excel 2010 and have run into the following problem. I have data in a text editor that I need to separate. I copy and paste this data into Cell A1, then do a "Text to Col" function that separates the data correctly. Now I have other data to paste into other cells on the same sheet. Here's the problem....The "Text to Col" function runs automatically when I paste other data into any other cell on the WS. How do I turn this off without closing the WS?
Recently I have been practising writing my own macros in VBA. I am using Excel 2010.
I have been trying to write a macro to look at two columns in a worksheet (say, columns D and E) and to delete the contents (not the formatting, and I don't want to delete the cell itself) of that cell only if it contains a numerical value (e.g. 1, 2, 256 or any other number). If it finds a cell with letters, then it wouldn't delete the contents of the cell. The cells are currently formatted as "currency" cells.
I have been trying all sorts of things and I just can't get it to work. I can write a macro to clear a range easy enough, but I am stuck on getting it to delete the right stuff. I won't embarrass myself by uploading the code that I have been using..
I have excel 2010. I have a worksheet with formulas that refer to a labelled cell, and I want to change the location that they refer to. When I select the name in the Name Box and delete it or type another name it has no effect on the name of the cell.
What is the VBA code for inserting text in all column B-cells of multiple selected rows?
I am creating a worksheet with a table containing various data related to orders of various materials (this is more or less data gathering from an older, paper-based 'system'). This table spans, columnwise, from A to D and expands downwards as more orders are added. The information in each column is: A=order number, B=type of material and C=material specs. and D=additional comments.
I've set it up so that the only thing I really have to do is to insert the type of material in the cells of column B, and the rest will sort itself out. Instead of having to insert a new row for each new entry and manually typing in the name of the material (these entries are often done in the midst of already existing data), I created several similar, macroed buttons for the different types of materials we use. These macros work by selecting the row of the currently active cell, inserting a new row and then add the name of the material in the column B-cell of this new row. What I am having trouble doing though, is to get the text-entry to work for a selection of multiple cells.
As an example, lets say that I would like to add 5 orders of "Grade A Steel" in the middle of the table - in the row above row 8. With the macro I currently have I can select cell B5, click the macro, and a new row will be inserted with "Grade A Steel" in column B of this new row. This action could be performed 5 times over, but would be easier if I could just mark a range of 5 cells, say B8:B12, click the macro and get the text/data inserted the column B-cells of all 5 of the new rows. So far I've been able to create a macro that inserts multiple new rows, but I've only been successful in filling the column B-cell in the first row leaving the 4 below empty.
In my worksheet I have 'Column A' and 'Column B', In 'Column A' are product I.D. numbers. In 'Column B' is a text description of the product, whose I.D. number is in 'Column A,' and should also contain the I.D. number from 'Column A' somewhere in the midst of the descriptive text. However, some of these in 'Column B' do not.
I need to create a function that looks for the value in 'Column A' and determines whether or not it is present in the text of 'Column B'. Therefore, spitting the answer out in 'Column C' so that I can copy it down for 100,000 cells.
In a field containing this: Bergamot, Orange*(11,16) I want to put a space before the asterisk. There are hundreds of these in the spreadsheet with other text before and after the text to be replaced. I made sure the field is defined as a text field.
I searched on "*(" and said replaced with " *(" and ended up with " *(11,16)" - the Bergamot, Orange was removed from the field.
Why the heck every time I enter in to the "edit text" area of the chart title box in a chart in Excel 2010 and type "=B27" (without the quotation marks, and understanding the contents of "B27" has the text I wish to display) does this idiot thing simply display "=B27" (again, without the quotation marks)???
Note: The "Bread Type" column will ALWAYS be in row 1, BUT will ALWAYS be in a different column letter, so I would like this macro to find the "Bread Type" column by name rather than by column number. All criteria should NOT be case sensitive.
In the example below, rows 2, 4 & 5, have the text "Wheat" or "Rye" in the "Bread Type" column, therefore, all 3 of these entire rows should be deleted. Yes, I do mean the ENTIRE row, wipe these rows off the face of the earth
Highlighed the Column and Row of the selected Cell. I have seen someone using it. Whenever he click on any cell the related column and Rows clour change. For Example if I select Cell B5. The Column B and Row 5 change its colur from B1 to B5 and Row from Column A to Column B. If this option is already available in office 2010
I am using 2010 and want to select a range starting at the same cell all of the time (regardless of whether or not it has contents - so let's say B7. Starting at B7, I want the range to include all of the columns starting at B and go to the end of all of the columns. Then I want the range to include all of the rows starting at B7 and end at the last row. I will eventually copy this range and paste it on another worksheet start on a specific cell of another worksheet. (Perhaps, we can add a name to this range).
I'm trying to use Excel to build a text file based on values from certain cells in Excel 2010. This is based partially off of static text that never changes and variables that will need to change. For example, I want Excel to output a text file that has the following text: The red fox jumped over the $X twice. I would want $X to be replaced by the value of A1 of the active worksheet. I will also have several lines like that, so it won't just be a single line, but anywhere from 20 - 120.
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'm using excel 2010 and windows XP with a moderate amount of experience tinkering with macro programming. I know what I need is very doable but I can't get my head around what the code would look like. I must not be wording my searches correctly because most of what I'm getting for results are iterative programs based on a cells value which isn't what I need.
I'm trying to build a macro that will check a cell (C3) and based on the contents of that cell copy a column (I) to one of 12 different columns (K:V). So if the value in C3 is 1 it should copy I to K, if the value is 2 it should copy I to L, and so on.
