Filter Data Macro Code

Mar 30, 2008

I do not know VB coding but is in need of help on data filtering/matching. I have 2 very big excel workbooks with a few thousand lines and am trying to do some filtering/matching. Example below.

The two workbooks I have contains same data in column A and also column D from the first data set is the same as column B in the 2nd data set. I am trying to add column C and D from the 2nd data set to the 1st data set and need to make sure they match up to column D from 1st set and B from 2nd set. It is quite strenuous to do this manually,

A1 2 3 100A
A1 2 3 100B
A1 2 3 100C
A1 2 3 100D

A1 100A AA BA
A1 100B AB BB
A1 100C AC BC
A1 100D AD BD

Filter Macro Code For Dates

Apr 30, 2008

I have a set of data that I need to sort and filter and create pivot tables with 2-3 times per week. Example data sheet attached (confidential data removed). I will insert the code that I am using for reference. The issue is that when the data is filtered for 'Approved Timesheets' I need the filter to be based on 2 criteria; If myBaseRow.Cells.Item(1, 21) <> "Approved" Then If myBaseRow.Cells.Item(1, 44) <=StartDate And myBaseRow.Cells.Item(1, 44) >=EndDate Then

The first If statement works fine, but the second appears to be ignored?? I have tried to colour this part of the code blue to make it easily visible.

Private Function PTSubtotals(ByRef PTField As PivotField)

PTField.Subtotals = _
Array(False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False)
End Function
Sub Timesheets()

Macro Code Using Advanced Filter

Jun 28, 2008

This is quite a easy one. I am a begineer so I don't know how to do it. I keep getting a runtime error. I want create a macro that does the following. I have this data(it is made up).


I want it to autofilter school njit


What would be the code for this? I want use the code for bigger data?. Also if you have a file which is 100 lines long and your macro does a series of steps for that file. Then you have another file and you want the same steps done but it is 500 lines long. How would you write a macro thatrun the steps taking in the last line and not just a 100 lines.

Macro Code To Filter Out 'Exact Matches' In 2 Columns

Nov 29, 2006

I have a large worksheet in drive C: called 'hits.csv' that has manufacturer part numbers in column G and column L.

I need macro code to find all rows in the worksheet where the part number in each cell in column G is exactly the same as the part number on the same row in the corresponding cell in column L. The macro should then delete/remove all rows where there is no exact match.

Note: The part number in every cell in column G is the only thing that is in each cell in that column. However just to warn you that the part number in every cell in column L is at the beginning of each cell, followed by a space and then a description of the part.

Once it has done the above, I would also like this macro code to open a worksheet called 'partnumbers.csv' in drive C:. It should then compare the part numbers in column A of this file with the part numbers in the above worksheet ('hits.csv'). The cells in Column D of the file 'partnumbers.csv' all contains a price. Where the macro finds an exact match on the part numbers in these 2 files, it should copy the price from the cell in column D in the file 'partnumbers.csv', into Column K of the other file, 'hits.csv' where the match exists.

Advanced Filter Active Sheet Macro Code

May 9, 2008

the macro mentioned below has been assigned to a combo-box form. I have 2 different datasets in the same sheet, they have the same headers (but named differently, myhead and myhead1) and the same adv filter criteria range (named as "dcrit") is applicable to both datasets. So, if an item is selected from the combo-box, both the datasets should get filtered according to same criteria. how i can combine the 2 IF LOOPS mentioned in the code?

Sub myfilt()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
If ActiveSheet.FilterMode Then ActiveSheet.ShowAllData
If Not (Range("indsignal")) Or Not (Range("countsignal")) Then
Range(Range("myhead"), Range("myhead").Offset(1, 0).End(xlDown)).AdvancedFilter _
Action:=xlFilterInPlace, CriteriaRange:=Range("dcrit"), Unique:=False
End If
If Not (Range("indsignal")) Or Not (Range("countsignal")) Then
Range(Range("myhead1"), Range("myhead1").Offset(1, 0).End(xlDown)).AdvancedFilter _
Action:=xlFilterInPlace, CriteriaRange:=Range("dcrit"), Unique:=False
End If
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Filter Range Multiple Times In Macro Code

Jun 11, 2008

I've taken data from a fixed-length text file and the records are identified using the first two characters on each line of the text file. I've managed to identify these in each row with other bits of code so that was fine.

Now, I have 56 string variables (identifying my record types), which I'm assigning into an array. Then, I want to go through each variable in the array, performing the same action by way of a For Next Loop where, by taking this particular RecIDNo (see my code) string variable I will get the code to copy/paste the data into the relevant worksheet (where later on I will apply a text to columns using another array). But first, this set must work before I can do that! To avoid confusion, note that the record types i.e. 01 through to 56, will be filtered, then copied into the corresponding worksheet with the same number.

The problem I'm getting is the autofilter I'm applying, then the array I'm trying to reference (to avoid repetitive coding!) doesn't work as the code doesn't compile (I've not worked a lot with Arrays but I'm learning all the time!)

Option Base 1
Sub test()
'The array is declared here:
Dim RecIDNo(56) As String
'The arrays are assigned the string variables below:
RecIDNo(1) = "01"
RecIDNo(56) = "56"

Code To Filter, Sum And Return A Value From Data Set

Nov 26, 2008

I deal with large amounts of data. For a score card I need find a way to filter data based on two constraints, sum it and display the output in a table. The two constraints are: Business Unit and Maintenance Type. I played around with recording filters, but the code becomes very unwieldy. From past experience with this site, where I used 10 lines, there's a way to do it in 2. take a look at the attached example book, a truncated data set and the output.

Advanced Filter Code - Criteria Range More Than 1 Row Breaks Filter

May 1, 2014

I found a great bit of Advanced Filter code that works great, and fixed a problem of clearing a cell breaking the filter.

But if I want to increase the criteria from 1 row to 2, so you can start to include And , Or operations, it breaks the filter. Even an attempt at a manual one fails, until you put the criteria range back down to one row, then it's fine again.

I've tried changing the Target Row to >2 but that didn't work. how to make the criteria range bigger, and no problems of breakage if you clear the cells? It makes for a very useful automated Advanced Filter.

Here's the code :

[Code] .....

Database = the named area of raw data.
DATA is the name of the raw data worksheet
The criteria range should be AZ1:BC3, but of course royally breaks it...

Macro To Filter Out Data For Five Regions

Jun 24, 2006

I've a workbook in which I run an excel macro to filter out data for five regions W1, W2, W3, W4, W5, the macro creates five sheets (w1, w2, w3, w4, w5) and places them in the same workbook along with the original master sheet called "west".

The data in all the sheets is layed out in an identical fashion except that the the number of rows in each sheet will differ depending on the number of records for each region in the master sheet "west".

I was looking for some vba coding to automatically add sum totals in two columns (I & J) for all the five region worksheets.

The first record always begins from row 4, in all the sheets.

so as an example W1 sheet could have a sum formula in I20 = Sum (I4:I8)
and in COl J as Sum(J4:J18). Row 19 is a blank row, and the intention is to leave a blank row just before placing the sum total in all the sheets.

W2 will have the same starting range but might differ in how many rows to sum .

And so on for the 4 remaining region worksheets in the workbook.

Using Macro To Operate Filter On Variable Data?

Feb 28, 2014

I have a written a macro to populate a filter criteria with a comma separated list, but the filter fails to work as each individual item on the list needs to be surrounded by speech marks (") and I don't know how to do this.

This may not be an actual vba issue?

The list I am using is derived from =SUBSTITUTE(TRIM(BK9&" "&BK15&" "&BK21)," ",",") There are 120 different cells that this formula references that could be blank. The SUBSTITUTE TRIM functions allow me to just use the cells that have data in. But I can't seem to get the " symbols in there. (I've tried the TEXT function on the original cells, & this doesn't work.

AdvancedFilter (macro To Filter Some Data From One Sheet To Another)

Jul 8, 2009

I'm having with creating a macro to filter some data from one sheet to another. I used the "record a macro" function to get the code I've posted below but part of the code is always changing.

In my workbook I have a main sheet called "Data" and another sheet called "Parts". The code below does what I need it to do, but the problem is that the cell range (A2:I139) is not constant and may change depending on how many rows of information I import on the "Data" sheet.

What I'd like to have happen is either have a dialog box pop up and prompt me to select the cell range (I've tried using the Application.InputBox function but can't figure it out), or since the first cell will always be A2 and the last column will always be I, have excel automatically figure out the last row that contains data.

Exclude Unwanted Data After Macro Filter

Sep 9, 2006

I have a sheet for addresses (Column 1 = Name, Column 2 = Address line 1, Column 3 = City, Column 4 = Postcode) and I run a macro that Filters that data based on the the city to different Tabs. This works fine except that sometimes, once the data is filtered I will find one or two addresses on my new filtered sheets that I really wanted to exclude. As my main address Tab information changes regularly, Ideally, I would like to see the Item on the City filtersheet, Double click it, and this would have the effect of deleting it from the City filtersheet but also copying it to an "Exclusions" Sheet which I could use before I run my normal filter macro to filter out these bad addresses.

Trying To Build A Macro Filter Based On Data In Either Of Two Columns

Jul 31, 2008

I created a contact list that incorporates buttons at the top of the page to sort the data based on two customer type columns (thanks to Richard for help getting this far!).

I am attaching the file so that it will be easier to take a look. Four of the five macros are working fine but the second one ("All Clients") filters on the premise that "yes" is answered in either of the two customer type columns. In other words I am trying to show the records that have "yes" entered in either of these two columns, not necessarily both columns.

VBA Macro To Pull Data From 3 Closed Workbooks And Filter

Dec 13, 2013

What I want to do is pull data from columns A,B,C,D in 3 other closed workbooks (export.csv, export1.csv, & export2.csv) to my main workbook (Thunder.xlsm)and append that data in columns A-D on my main workbook. In addition I created a list of 10 names (but need to expand or delete from this list as personnel change) in Column O that I would like to filter the data in A-D. The names in the list must find the data I want to keep in column D, the rest I want to delete (not the entire row, just A-D for that particular row that does not match the criteria in column O, and shift those cells up).

I've attached a sample spreadsheet that will clarify what I am asking. I'm preferably asking for 2 macro's, one for the pull of data, and the other for the filtering.

Column A
Column B
Column C
Column D
