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.

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 :: Sorting Or Counting Based On Text Colour

Sep 10, 2013

I have a database of names in one column in excel 2010 and over time I have coloured the text of some of the names green to show that they have been added to a new online database. I want to be able to count how many of the names have been coloured so I can see if it matches with the total number already added on to the online database. I have over 800 entries so I don't want to have to manually count them unless I find I have missed any. Conditional Formatting is greyed out (it is a Shared document so that might be why).

in creating an IF (text is a certain colour) THEN 1, 0 or any others ways I can find the total in that colour. I only have two text colours in my spread sheet, black and light green.

Excel 2010 :: Formula That Will Work With Text And Numbers?

Dec 10, 2013

I am working in Excel 2010 (Windows 8) and am having real problems trying to find a function/formula that will work with both numbers and text. I am trying to identify if the contents of Col A cells and Col C cells on each row are duplicated within a worksheet, and if they are, to add a 'J'.

(Column A is a list of numerical company codes and Column C is a list of adviser codes using the letter A-G. If a company ID code has more than one of the same adviser codes referenced to it, it is termed 'Joint', hence the 'J').

The formula I've used is: =IF(A2:C2, FREQUENCY>1, "J")

But it tells me 'numbers only'.

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:

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


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 :: Building Text File Based On Values Of Cell?

Feb 26, 2014

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.

Excel 2010 :: Count Formula Based On Another Cell

Aug 7, 2012

The formula I found is close but I need it to count, not sum.


Example data: [972 1] [972 2] [972 3] [214 1] [214 1] [765 1] [765 2]

I want the formula to count the different numbers in the second column based on the first column. The results should show, 972 equals 3, 214 equals 1, 765 equals 2.

I am trying to separate this out but it keeps putting this paragraph.

Character Limit?

Nov 18, 2008

I'm adding some necessary code to the beginning and end of some cell contents in Format | Cells | Custom and I seem to be coming up against a character limit.

I'm using the phrase "!!<"@">!!" to add the code, but with some cell contents the result is ########### (but much longer), and I'm having to remove some of the text to make it work. The limit seems to be around 255 characters.

Excel 2010 :: Pivot Table Add Calculated Field Based On Certain Text In Report Filter

May 29, 2014

Any way to create a calculated field in an Excel 2010 pivot table that will find all the Transaction Types (Report Filter) with "transportation" in them and make the field Quantity 0 and leave all other quantities the same? I do not want the quantity of transportation added in twice and may not have the flexibility of adding a column to the raw data.

I used the formula below in a calculated field and it does not match the values using the added column to the data file.

=IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("*transportation*",'Transaction Type')),Quantity, 0)

I am trying to get the sum of Quantity field to equal the AdjQuantity field using a calculated Pivot field and not add a new column to the data.

Excel 2010 :: VBA Repeating Formula(s) In Specified Cells Based On Defined Variables?

Dec 28, 2012

In my worksheet, I know the last line of my report AND I know how many "reporting segments" (all equidistant and identical) there are in the report based on the last row using the below (which I tested in several reports in messages):

Dim vListEnd As Variant
Dim vTaskCount As Double
vListEnd = ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Offset(Sheet1.Rows.Count - 1, 0).End(xlUp).Row
vTaskCount = ((vListEnd - 5) / 22)

My "reporting segments" are ALWAYS 22 rows each and the first one always starts in row 5. Example: A document where the last row (containing an End of Report special character) is 247 would have 11 reporting segments.

Within each reporting segment, there are two different formulas needed.

For the first reporting segment located in rows A5 thru J27:

I need FORMULA1 in all cells of the range (D5:D15 dragged out to H5:H10(not 15) and D18) and FORMULA2 in cells (F20:F22,J20:J22).

Then I need to repeat that vTaskCount number of times (number of segments) and at intervals of 22 (segment repeater offset). Some reports may have 2 segments, some might have 50, but the structure is always identical.

My formulas are all pretty simple if it makes a difference (originally using FormulaR1C1 = "=RC[-1]+RC[-3]" --- but because I now know solid cell locations I suppose I don't need to make them relative, too.)

Countif V. 255 Character Limit?

Aug 17, 2009

I'm trying to use the countif function to search a cell containing, say, 1000 alphanumeric characters.

For example, cell A1 contains the text...

"There needs to be an easier way to build worksheet formulas for 64 levels of nesting and 255 arguments to be meaningful. Perhaps a "Formula Composer" dialog box or something that allows you to build up a complex formula in parts and allows you to evaluate the partial formulas. When you're done, and the formula is displayed in the sheet, all of the parentheses would be automatically put in the correct places."

...and cell A2 contains the formula...

Worksheet Tab Character Limit?

Aug 5, 2010

This is the maximum number of characters a worksheet tab can support. some additional code to rename the worksheet tabs and trim the name when 31 character limit is reached? note I need to keep the value in cell B3 as it is but trim the worksheet tab name only.

For I = 1 To Sheets.Count
If Worksheets(I).Range("B3").Value "" Then
Sheets(I).Name = Worksheets(I).Range("B3").Value
Sheets(I).Name = "Default (" & I & ")"

Limit First Character To Alpha

Feb 27, 2009

I'm trying to have the macro limit the cell entry to 5 characters beginning with a "P" and the remaining 4 character being numeric. The problem I'm having is that it's not recognizing the requirement for the beginning "P" but only identifies if the length is less than 5 characters. Any idea how I can resolve this?

For PN2 = 43 To 72
If Not IsEmpty(Cells(PN2, 1)) And Left(Cells(PN2, 1), 1) "P" And Len (Cells(PN2, 1)) 5 Then
MsgBox ("The employee number must be 5 characters long begining with P (e.g. P0001), please change accordingly!")
Range(Cells(PN2, 1), Cells(PN2 + 2, 1)).ClearContents
Cells(PN2, 1).Select

Excel 2010 :: 3+ Conditional Formatting Rules For Cell Range Based On Formula From Other Cells

Feb 5, 2013

how to apply conditional formatting via VBA to a range of cells based on input from another range of cells. Obviously this would be easy in Excel 2010, but I'm still using 2003 at the office and it needs to stay in this format to be readable by other users:

For cells M8:EK8, my conditional formatting
condition 2: Formula Is =AND($E$8>=M2,(($E$8-$D$8)>=(N2-$M$2))), color index is 40
condition 3: Formula Is =AND($F$8<=M2,$G$8>=M2), color index is 39
I want to add:
condition 4: Formula Is =AND($H$8<=M2,$I$8>=M2), color index is 40
condition 5: Formula Is =AND($J$8<=M2,$K$8>=M2), color index is 39
and so on

The cells in the range M8:EK8 are blank, they only get colored based on input added to D8 to K8. If there is no input, then the cells should be uncolored.
