Fast Typing With Keywords

Mar 1, 2007

I'm working on an Excel spreadsheet and basicly i'm inserting manually data from a lot of paper forms.

It isn't a dificult thing, but is boring, because I have to do more than 2000 forms per week!
I want to accelerate, and how to do that

Problem: "Address"! The Excel page that i'm working has a column to feel with Addresses manually, but I have a table with all correct Address names from the city that I'm working about in other page.

What I would like is when start typing some keyword from the Address cell, it could show me all the choises of input (based on the correct Address Table)

Excel, by default, show, by exact order, all the choises, already typed on the same collumn.
I don't want that.

- imagine I have the Table 1 (representing the table with all city adresses) with a collumn called 'Address' with:

A1 - Street ZXY
A2 - Avenue QWE
A3 - Street QWE
A4 - Avenue ZXY

when typing on another Table, if I write something like QWE show me the A2 and A3 to choose wich I'm going to feel, and the same to ZXY, showing the A1 and A4. Other thing, if I write QWE street may show A3 also. Keyword is what i'm talking about

Fast Macro To Hide Empty Rows

Mar 22, 2014

Im looking for a macro that hide empty rows. I found some simple macro but that are long to execute. While looking for a faster code, I found two codes that work pretty fast. But as I don't understand VBA I am not able to adjust them to my situation.

First macro: I am able to specify my range (B6:B77), but the macro applies to blank cells and I need to apply to "" cells.

[Code] .....

Second macro: very fast as well. Here, it applies to "" cells, but I am unable to specify a range. So the rows 1 to 4, which are empty, are hidden but should not.

[Code] .....

Range Between Two Keywords In Specific Column

Jan 11, 2014

Currently running a macro which selects all the rows between two specific words and pastes the selection into another worksheet. However, it runs this search on the entire workbook, whereas I'd just like it to run the search in a particular column (column D in this instance).

This is the code as it currently stands:

With ActiveSheet
.Range(.Cells.Find("financial assets"), .Cells.Find("liabilities")).EntireRow.Select
End With

Sheets("Paste Currency").Activate
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False

Is there any way to focus the search on only one column?

Replicate And Increment Alphanumeric Keywords?

Dec 15, 2007

I want to create a list from a "seed" word that consists of a word followed by a number (ex: seedword100).

What I want to do is to be able to create a list in Excel using that seed word and then have excel produce a bunch of replications of that seed word by incrementing the number part of the seed word by 1 for every replication.

So, for example, if cell A1 = "seedword100", I want Excel to replicate it up to "seedword199" like this...

B1 = seedword101
C1 = seedword102
D1 = seedword103
E1 = seedword104
F1 = seedword105
G1 = seedword106
H1 = seedword107 ...

and so on until the last cell = seedword199 (or whatever number I want it so stop at).

Replace Values Between Two Keywords In A Column?

Jan 31, 2014

I have data in which there are important keywords within a row (e.g.,# Message: FacesSc0_1) that are 'boundary markers' for data that is relevant to me. What I want to do is to select the data in the column between two such keywords, replace them all with the same specific value, and delete the other rows.

For example a column may look like this:

# Message: FacesSc0_1
# Message: FacesSc0_2
# Message: FacesSc0_3
# Message: FacesSc0_4

I would like to replace the values in the cells between "# Message: FacesSc0_1" and "# Message: FacesSc0_1" with the value 1, delete the values between "# Message: FacesSc0_2" and "# Message: FacesSc0_3", and replace the values in the cells between "# Message: FacesSc0_3" and "# Message: FacesSc0_4" with value 2. The resulting column would be reduced to this:

# Message: FacesSc0_1
# Message: FacesSc0_2
# Message: FacesSc0_3
# Message: FacesSc0_4

Search Multiple Worksheets For Several Keywords

May 11, 2009

I am trying to set up a worksheet which takes keywords from several cells (user populates these cells) and searches all worksheets for these keywords.

for example, i have C1:G1 set up as possible search string entry cells where the user types their text. I need a function which takes the data in whichever of these cells have been filled in (i.e. it may only be in 1 cell, 2 cells or all 5) and searches each worksheet for all cells containing ALL keywords. (as it finds each one, i will highlight the cell, but that part of the code is obviously very easy )

Currently i have this (note, i havent yet figured out how to but the k1 to k5 variables into the search string yet which is why they are set but not used):
At the moment, its not ever looking past worksheet 1 - can anyone see why? and then how to i get it to look for all entered keywords?

Search Multiple Keywords In A String?

Jan 22, 2014

I am busy building a spreadsheet that must do the following.



Above is a basic example of the data I am using What the spreadsheet must do is it must search cell B1 for the key word in in cell E1, if it does not find the keyword, it must search the same cell for the keyword in cell E2 and so on if it finds the key word it must return a consatination of cell A1 and the Keyword.

This is easy enough to do using the search function together with a couple of nested IF statements but where the problem comes in is that I am needing to run the search on about 12000 lines using over 10000 key words.

currently I have sheet with a formula in Column A containing 40 nested IFs searching for the first 40 key the same formula in Column B searching for the next 40 keywords and so on but to search 10 000 keywords(Client name or Client number) I am needing to apply this formula to 250 columns over 12000 line which makes the sheet very resource incentive.

How do I streamline this to make the spreadsheet more efficient

I need to setup a macro that will search for a keyword in a list with about 21000 rows. When the macro finds the keyword it cuts the row out and moves it to another sheet. I'm having a few problems

1. I don't know how to make the function search until it can't find the keyword anymore, then move on to the next word

2. I can't get it to select what it finds it finds the cell but I don't know how to select that cell once its found.

Dim keyword As String
Dim x, y, z As Long
For x = 1 To 53

Keywords As Delimiter To Split Cells

Jul 1, 2008

I've got a column of data containing addresses. What I want to do is split the column after certain keywords such as "street", "road", "close" etc and move any words that come after these in the cell into the next cell to the right.

For example, in one cell I might have "54 Burberry Road Finsbury London"... what I want to do is have part of the text remain in the original cell i.e. "54 Burberry Road" and the rest, "Finsbury London", moved to the cell on the right.

Not all cells in the column will match this format so if it doesn't find a keyword, nothing will occur and it will move to the next cell down etc. until it reaches the end of the column.

There are no delimiters (apart from the spaces) between the words.

I haven't figured out all of the keywords that I will need to search for yet but I should be able to extrapolate from something fairly generic.

Allow Typing But Not Pasting

Jul 12, 2007

On a sheet of my workbook, I need to allow typing but not pasting. I'm using Workbook, because I'd just as soon not allow pasting anywhere.

If the data is copied from within Excel, this seems to work:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub

but if the data is copied from somewhere outside of Excel, it pastes it anyway.
