I am trying to find specific text throughout an excel document (2007) and replace it with the same text but in italics. I tried using the options/format function and selecting italics for the "replace" text but it replaces the entire cell text in italics instead.

Excel 2010 :: Macro To Perform Find And Replace Function

Apr 8, 2014

I have two sheets. One is named sheet1 where all my data is and sheet2 where all my values are. I want to do a find a replace on column N (sheet1) using the data in sheet2. Column A on Sheet2 has all the values that are found in column N and column B on Sheet2 has what the data should change to.

So for example:

Sheet1 says the following on column N:

Sheet2 says:
Column A
A1: Cat
A2: Dog
A3: Bear

Column B
B1: 2
B2: 8

I want the values on column N to be replaced with 2, 8, 15 and so forth. I use excel 2010.

Macro To Find Replace Specific Text In Multiple Sheet Names

Sep 13, 2010

I need a macro that will look for a specific text string in the tab names of the workbook and replace it with a new specified text string (leaving the rest of the existing tab names). In other words, a simple find/replace but applied to all tab names in the workbook rather than cells. Ideally, I'd like it to pop up something and ask for the text to find and the text to replace it with, so I don't have to edit the macro itself each time I want to use it, but editing the macro each time is fine. Either way will be wonderful.

Excel 2003 :: Find And Replace Missing The Ability To Replace Values?

Feb 5, 2009

This problem has come up fairly frequently lately, and I'm not sure how to fix it, or if this is by design...but in Excel 2003 I can't seem to do a "Find and Replace" based on the value of a cell. I can do a find, based on cell value, but the moment I change to the replace tab, the "values" and "comments" are missing from the "look in" dropdown.

I've only noticed this when I'm trying to replace on a filtered list, so I'm not sure if that is part of the issue.

Perhaps an alternative way of arriving at the same goal. Basically I have a worksheet with a number of filtered columns. They are filtered just right, using custom filtering, and so I do not want to undo the filters. In some columns I have formulas that are returning #VALUE! errors. I'd like to replace all of these cells with NA.

I need it to post a message exactly as long as what I have in there. How do I get it to work?

Output Redirection From BAT Or VBS To Text File

Jun 26, 2014

I am working on a VBA routine that calc and verifies hash files for a series of folders and sub directories, using a command line prog called exactfile.exe (exactfile.com). It is very similar to M$'s FCIV utility, but it is actually supported on Win7/Win8. The issue I am having is that I cannot get the standard output/error/console stream to redirect to a text file. I've written the routine multiple ways, trying to figure out redirection. I was using this site

HTML Code: [URL]....

as a reference.

Here is my VBS approach. This code is dependent on another sub passing folder_name as a string

[Code] .....

The VBS then executes using wscript, however, since exf.exe does not return an exit code the same way FCIV.exe does, I need the results redirected to a text file. The results vary from a single line saying "No errors." or multiple lines indicating which files do not match their original hash.

Here are a couple iterations of my BAT approach, where i use the BAT to call the VBS. I really thought I would be able to use the standard redirect > here, since the executable is launched using cmd.exe, but I've not gotten the results I want.

[Code] .....

I've scoured more pages than I can count, but no approach seems to work, so far.

Output Used Range To Text File

Oct 9, 2007

I would like to output the text I perpared in " sheet 1" into a text file, "output.txt"

The imformation I like to output start from coulmn C, and column D then column E.....
The numbers of rows in each column could be different, and also there may be some single empty column in between. The totals numbers of coulmn is unknow.

the text in the output.txt should contant all the imformation in the sheet started from column C, coulmn D, column F.... (if coulmn E is empty). and the text in the output.txt file is continues with no gap in it.

To make it even more powerful for later use, The column that begin with NOT should not be output.

Edit Change And Output A Text File

Feb 7, 2009

I use excel to read in an ASCII data file in which every line beginning with H is a header line and lines beginning with S are data line.

I want excel to filter out the header lines and output the file with the data lines only then outputs these in a new file.

I also want it to read the values from column 72 to 75 and subtract 6 from them then output them again to the same new file.

Sub read()
Open "d:/intouch/0502SPSS.LOG" For Input As #1
Dim i As Integer
Dim lines(9999) As String
i = 0
Do While Not EOF(1)
Line Input #1, z
i = i + 1
If Mid(z, 1, 1) = "H" Then
i = i - 1

ElseIf Mid(z, 1, 1) = "S" Then.................................

the problem is that the new file is generated but it is always empty

Output To CSV Text File Produces Extra Spaces

May 21, 2008

I'm outputting some cells to a CSV. At first I tried using the SaveAs function but that renamed my worksheet and didn't work for ranges (as far as I know)

Sub Export()
Dim myADPFile As String
Dim x As Byte
x = 5
Open myADPFile For Output As 1
While (Not (Sheet3.Range("A" & x).Value = NA))
Print #1, Trim(Sheet3.Range("B" & x).Value), ",", _
Trim(Sheet3.Range("C" & x).Value), ",", _
Sheet3.Range("D" & x).Value, ",", _ ..........................

The values are correct. However, the excess amount of spaces is not. Using the Write function just encases everything in quotation marks. Replacing spaces isn't a good solution because the first row MUST be in that format, and removing all spaces would require more code to put spaces back in. Is there a way to get rid of all the excess spaces surrounding each value?

Excel 2013 :: Can't Find Macro In Inherited File - How To Search In VBA

Apr 8, 2014

So there's a macro "RoundedRectangle4_click" that's assigned to a box on a worksheet. It's a simple macro, I assume. it just takes the user to the 'Main Sheet' tab. I know the name b/c I rightclicked on the box to get the Macro Assigned.

I click on Macros (F8), it's not listed there, but"RoundedRectangle5_click" is, so I click on it, edit it to match the one I'm searching. Nope, nothing. CREATE button is highlighted.

I've gone to VBA (AltF11) to try to find it among the 25+ worksheets, forms & modules - haven't found it yet.

VBA For Bypassing Replace File Prompt When Saving As A File In Macro

Jul 7, 2008

I am setting up a "save as" macro that saves a file by replacing another file in a folder. Even though the macro has been recorded by approving the replacement (the prompt appears "the file --- already exists. Do you want to replace the existing file?"), when I run the macro, I am again prompted about replacing the file. Is it possible to avoid the prompt so the file is automatically saved by replacing the named file?

Find And Replace Data From File Import?

Mar 24, 2014

.Find and Replace data

I have a file that I keep importing into Excel that shows up in Column A. The Range typically varies to how short or how long the end of the file is. But every time I import a file in, the last 20 rows are the same. The 20 rows I want to replace with other values on another sheet.
This is a simple example:



I would want to replace the numbers with the letters. The biggest thing is if I can filter or have excel find the end of the file (using a shift+crtl+End) or something and have a formula on sheet2 that it can reference; then replace. Any way to have excel automatically find the end of the file and replace values without manually doing it.

Find And Replace Formula For Locating Short Text Within Larger Text?

Jan 7, 2014

I have an existing Cash Flow Report that has a column of abbreviated/shortened (WBS Element) title where each cell contains a unique three lettered/numbered amount of characters (Example: 200). These three abbreviated character cells are specific and relate to their full/longer (SAP WBS Element) title (Example: WBS DWRRI-BW066-200).

In my attached excel model (Find, Locate, and Align WBS Elements to Cash Flow Report.xlsx), I need a formula for the, "Cash Flow Report WBS Elements" sheet in cells B3 thru B11 that will look at the abbreviated three lettered/numbered (WBS Element) titles in cells C3 thru C11, then search and recognize its unique counterpart contained in the, "SAP WBS Elements Export" sheet and return this full/longer (SAP WBS Element) title to the, "Cash Flow Report WBS Elements" sheet in cells B3 thru. B11, just to the left of its abbreviated/shortened (WBS Element) title.

Formula To Find Specific Text And Replace With Alternate Text?

Mar 4, 2014

I have a worksheet with several columns. I need a formula to search column D only and each time a specific location is identified to replace that location with alternate text. Example (ORIGNAL TEXT):

Column Dtext to text help.xlsx

I need to search that listing and each time the word BIRD is mentioned have it replaced with FEATHERS and each time DOG is listed have it replaced with TAILS Final result would look like:


All other text should stay the same and replacement text should appear in the cell of the text it is replacing. This is a sheet used by multiple people several times a day and so the Find/Replace option really won't work.

Have working on this for at least 6 months and it just isn't going to happen for me. I thought I could use a Conditional format, but that is producing no results either.

Find And Replace On Some Duplicates In Huge Data File

Mar 6, 2014

I have a file with 300k lines of SKU data. This is data by month for 12 months (so roughly 25K SKUs per month, with changes in SKUs each month.) I take this data and pivot it and drop it into a file.

I noticed last month when I prepared that the SKUs have names next to them, and sometimes the information is pull by the name instead of the SKU. Unfortunately, in the master data, someone entered different names in a few of the months. So for example, in some months SKU 0012 is Green B and in other months it's Green Beans. I need the names to be the same.

Is there a quick way to fix this given that I'll have 12 records and maybe 3 will be one name and 9 will be there other? Finding and replacing every one is a chore because on pivot there are 40k. I don't think I can do a quick remove duplicates because it would remove multiple months. I just want each SKU to have the same name.

Find And Replace Formatted Text

Jan 6, 2009

I want to find strikethrough text and replace it with blanks. In my sheet there are cells that contain both strikethrough and normal text. I tried using the 'Find and replace' tool, specifying the format. I've attached a picture with the settings from the Replace window.

The problem is that Excel finds the cells that contain strikethrough text, but replaces with blank ALL the cell content. I would like to replace only the strikethrough text from the cell and leave the normal text as it is!

Text To Columns - Find And Replace

Jun 20, 2013

I work at a club. I've got a spreadsheet sent to me from another club we do business with. On it are charges from their club to ours that list the charge and associated member number.

I'm trying to use the text to columns feature to separate the member number from the other data in the column so I can sort by member number making it easier for us to bill our members.

Here is a sample of the data:

"Beach Club Bar,b500"
"Beach Club Bar,s200"
"Beach Club Bar,a150"

When I try to use text to columns what happens using the comma as a deliminator, everything including and after the comma disappears.

Thinking that maybe I needed a space between the comma and the member number (in the first line b500 is the member number) I tried to use find and replace to replace , with , and a space after it. This also resulted in all of the data including and after the comma disappearing. I'm sure I'm missing something here.

I tried copying the data into a separate spreadsheet. Tried changing it to text or general.

I typed in the exact data as you see it and tried the text to column function and it worked perfectly. What could be hidden in the data in that column that's causing this?

Find And Replace Text On Worksheet

Nov 11, 2011

I need some vba coding which will find and replace text on a worksheet. This would normally be straight-forward, however some text needs to be replaced by text which already occurs in the worksheet, and without it changing as well (if Find/Replace can perform two Find/Replaces at the same time???).

Here is the detail and what I am trying to accomplish: I have two worksheets each with a table of data.Worksheet 1 has a lookup table with three columns of data (column a and b are lists, with c being a formulated column which is dependent on the user selecting either column a name or column b name). I have done this easily enough using data validation on cell $C$1.Worksheet 2 has a user input table which column 3 is a dropdown validation using the named range "UsedName" from Worksheet 1.

I want the selected dropdown names to automatically change when the user changes Old Name to New Name (and vis-versa) on Worksheet 1.The list of values in the data validation dropdown list change well enough, but not any of the existing returned values. When I tried to use vba coding to Find & Replace, I run into issues because (Substanital and Important) are used in both instances, but at different levels with different matched names Important/Relevant.

Worksheet 1
1 Cell with dropdown list New Names
2 (Old Names, New Names)
4 Old Names New Names Names Level
5 Equal Equivalent Equivalent 1
6 Dominant Critical Critical 2
7 Important Substantial Substantial 3
8 Substantial Major Major 4
9 Relevant Important Important 5
10 Minor Irrelevant Irrelevant 6
formula for column C =IF($C$1="Used Names", A5, B5)
column C is name ranged "Names

Worksheet 2
(Worksheet 2 has another table which has various data. One column which is a drop down list being pulled from Worksheet 1)

1 Bob 25% Critical 19
2 Frank 60% Important 33
3 Ellen 40% Substantial 5
4 Ellen G 20% Substantial 12
5 Gary 55% Equivalent 100
6 Jo 50% Major 8
7 Peter 40% Important 22
8 Kim 12% Equivalent 30
9 Shelley 75% Substantial 15
10 John 75% Critical 90

so I want column C to automatically change from these New Names to the corresponding Old Name of the same level. So Critical would become Dominant, Important would become Relevant and Substantial would become Important.

Find And Replace Empty Text

Nov 5, 2009

I'm having this problem whereby a few cells in my work contain empty texts. An empty text is represented textually in VBA with a pair of double quotation marks with nothing inside (I think).

This means that the cells don't display anything visible, but are not blank/empty.

So what happens is that formulas such as ISBLANK(), COUNTA(), etc. are returning unexpected results.

Find And Replace A Value In A String Of Text

Jan 23, 2008

I am trying to be able to input a value in column A and the string of text in column B will be affected by the value that I put in Column A. And i want to be able to do this with multiple rows with multiple values. Example:

My string of text in column B remains the same until the value of Column A changes. The find/replace will overwrite the "" in the string. This is my string of text in Column B: "^cCHT;all;;t;g;F1;F1;;all;;t;g;F2;F2;;all;;"

A1 value = "ABC"
Resulting Text in B1 = "^cCHT;all;;t;g;F1;F1ABC;;all;;t;g;F2;F2ABC;;all;;"

A2 value = "XYZ"
Resulting Text in B2 = "^cCHT;all;;t;g;F1;F1XYZ;;all;;t;g;F2;F2XYZ;;all;;"

I know that I can accomplish this by creating a button but I was wondering if there is a more automated way like a formula in a cell or something.
