Find Format: Find Method And Combine It With A Countif Or Loop

Feb 20, 2007

I'm trying to use this Find Method and combine it with a countif or loop. Something that will count a number of occurences of a unique type of character. I'm looking to find all "F" characters in Bold, Italic and Size 16. Here's my find code that I'm trying to use. I can get it to work by itself but not along with a countif or loop.

Sub count_4()
Dim r As Range
Set r = Range("A1:A6")
With Application.FindFormat.Font
.Bold = True
.Italic = True
.Size = 16
End With
r.Find(What:="F", LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, _
SearchDirection:=xlNext, searchformat:=True, MatchCase:=True).Activate
End Sub

With Loop + Find Method And Sum The Negative Values

Feb 23, 2010

I have a very large worksheet (row count maxed in 2007, and then some), for which I need to do the following: search column A for a string that will occur many times, and then check the 10 cells that follow in its row for negative values, dropping some sort of indicator in the 11th (shading it red or something would be fine). An additional bonus would be if the 10 cells that possibly contain a negative could be summed (the sum could serve as the indicator?). If no negative is found, nothing need be done, and the macro should chug along searching A for the next reference to this string.

My hope was to do a sort of "With Range("A:A"), .Find("MyString")", save position as StartPos, do the 10-cell row checking in a nested IF or For (though the For would take a long while, checking each cell individually), then doing a .FindNext after StartPos until = StartPos (does .FindNext loop back to the top?). The formatting of the indicator cell in the 12th cell in each relevant row doesn't really matter, it's more just for jumping to critical rows.

Textbox Time Format Not Preserved In Find Method

Dec 3, 2008

I am sure this may have been asked before ... but couldnt find it on a search

I have a number of userforms in an excel database, all with add, edit search capabilities.

Several of the textbox's have a time format, when I enter the time it is shown in hh:mm format, it is stored on the spreadsheet in the same format. but if I use the search function to recall a record and display it on the userform, to allow ammendments the time is always shown as a decimal. Can I set it to display the time as entered.

An example of some coding for a text box is shown below

Private Sub TxForTime_AfterUpdate()
TxForTime.Value = Format(TxForTime.Value, "hh:mm")
End Sub

The above vba command which is extract the data from the Other workbooks. It looks for the "Staff 001", "Staff 002"...these parameters to transfer the data to the worksheet. But, the "Staff 001" data must appear twice in each workbooks. If i use the above command, i only can extract the FIRST "Staff 001" average data. But SECOND "Staff 001" average data cannot extract. I know it may be use FindNext method to do this but i am not sure how to write it

Find Method Returning Value?

Aug 27, 2007

I know I must be missing something basic, but why is this code assigning a value to "NamePosition", instead of a range:

RightName = Sheets("WorkingSheet").Cells(1, 1).Value

Set StudentTbl = Sheets("Tracker").Range("A1:" & "Z" & NumStudents)

Set NamePosition = StudentTbl.Find(What:=RightName, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False)
I thought the find method returned a range?

Find Method When No Match

Nov 8, 2006

I am going through various excel sheets looking for certain text on them. not all of the sheets will have the text.

I have been using

Cells. Find(What:="FindMe", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt _
:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _

and it works fine, if the text is on the sheet. When the text is not on the sheet, how should I handle this.

I have tried On Error and IsError variations, but could use a little guidance

Insert Value On Clipboard Into Find Method

Jan 31, 2013

How to get the GetFromClipboard syntax from here working with my code (below), but am having a really frustrating time. Basically, I need to search for whatever value is copied to the clipboard (as you can see below which will be relative to a certain cell).

Here's what I have so far, and I'm trying to replace the contents of the What:="121212121" part of the Find method to look for the clipboard contents (a 9 char number) in another sheet (where a duplicate exists - the value I am searching will be a unique identifier for the incorrectly created duplicate record that needs to be deleted).

So, What:=<insert number/string on clipboard here>

Sub DeleteDupes()

ActiveCell.Offset(0, 5).Range("A1").Select
Cells.Find(What:="121212121", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _

Using Find Method To Match Dates

Dec 2, 2009

I am trying to use the .Find method to match a date. In sheet2 I have a range of cells which are formatted to only show the day "dd" (I could format each cell to show (dd-mmm-yy, etc). In sheet1, I have dates which are formatted as "January 7, 2009"

I want to create a VBA find routine which allows me to match the date from Sheet2 (Ranged between cells A1:Z1) with Sheet1. Then output a MsgBox stating "Match found in cell $A$7 of Sheet1" I have tried a formula similar to:

PHP Set FoundCell = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1:Z1").Find _
(what:=DateValue("January 7, 2009") ,lookin:=xlFormulas)

Find Method Only Returns 2nd Value In Cell

Mar 11, 2014

My .find function is only finding the 2nd value in a cell example If i look up the term " HOSE"

5/8 hose water Will return
5/8 heater hose will not

Basically what I am making is something I am calling a "what" button. It queries my database and returns all the part numbers with the term i put in and i thought it was working fine till i was testing it, did i do something to select this? I've tried xlpart and xl whole. Neither is working.

Here is the code below

Sub COPYPARTNUMBERINFO()Dim parttofind As String
Dim partcell As Range
Dim partref As Range
ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="*******"
parttofind = InputBox("What is the number or discription")

Find Method Unexpected Result

Apr 18, 2006

I am using the find method to search column headings, and based on the results copy the column to another worksheet. Everything works fine except if I have a mixed text and numeric string in the cell, for example DT35. In this case the macro doesn't copy this column. I have attached the spreadsheet. CTRL - A will run the macro. The macro calls a form with checkboxes, captioned using the values in the worksheet titled "Set-Up". If a value is found in the column heading the checkbox is set to true, then when the "Copy Selected Columns to Final Sheet" button is selected the columns are copied to the "FinalSheet" worksheet. I tried using xlPart instead of xlWhole, and this works but I need to search for exact strings so xlPart isn't a great work around.

Error Handling With Find Method

Jun 20, 2007

I have a UserForm (and associated code) to locate a specific entry in Column 'A' of a spreadsheet and insert a date, initials, and hyperlink to another file.

The basic code works fine, but did not account for the user entering a Job# that was not in the system, so I added an If/Else to account for this...
The additional code took the If (Job# not found) route every time...
Following many hours of searching this site and variations of the error handling code, I still can not get it to work.

So I'm asking for your assistance to point out why the error handling (based on other successful code found here) is not working for me.

'Insert Link
Private Sub CommandButton3_Click()

If TextBox1.Value = "" Then
MsgBox "Please Insert a Job#"
Exit Sub
ElseIf TextBox2.Value = "" Then
MsgBox "Please Insert Quoters Initials"
Exit Sub
ElseIf TextBox3.Value = "" Then
MsgBox "Please Insert Quote Date"
Exit Sub

The 'Find' part of the code is working, as the correct cell is selected after running the code... but it gives the error message, instead of executing the rest of the code...

If I remove the 'On Error Resume Next', it stops on the find block, where on inspection FindR = Nothing.

So if FindR does = Nothing, how did it manage to select the cell?

Find Method Error When No Match

Jan 28, 2008

Asking for a row value to be returned if a string is found to exist in the sheet. Works great if it finds the value but I get the following error when the string isn't found:

Run Time Error '91':
Object Variable or With block variable not set.

Concept code follows. The commented strOCNumOF line contains the value that's found on the sheet. The uncommented line contains a value not found.

Sub find_test1()
Dim intFoundOnCur As Integer
Dim strOCNumOF As String

strOCNumOF = "AP4506"
'strOCNumOF = "BP6020"

intFoundOnCur = ThisWorkbook.ActiveSheet. Cells.Find(What:=strOCNumOF, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, SearchOrder:=xlByRows).Row

FIND Method For Comparing Two Columns In 2 Spreadsheets

Dec 20, 2012

I am using "FIND" method for comparing two columns in 2 spreadsheets. So if cell value in sheet1 matches with cell value in sheet2 then copy multiple columns from sheet2 to sheet1 (similar to what VLOOKUP does but I need to return multiple values if the comparison is true).

Values that I comparing are in Column A in both the sheets. Is match I need to return values from about 20 columns (from sheet2 to sheet1). One value that I am returning is in Column B, I was able to get that working. but other values are in columns starting from M. I do not know how to get those values from Sheet2 to Sheet1.

Following is the portion of code that deals with this FIND method

Set wsTools = Worksheets("AllTools")
Set wsToolParts = Worksheets("Tools and Parts")

Set ToolPartsRange = wsToolParts.Range("A2:A" & lR)
Set AllToolRange = wsTools.Range("A2:A" & lR3)

For Each ToolPartsCells In ToolPartsRange

[Code] .....

As you may notice that the following line brings next column (B) back but I do not know how to get other column values. They are in columns from M to Z

ToolPartsCells.Offset(, 1) = ToolCells.Offset(, 1)

Method For Find Large Number Of Data

Jan 19, 2010

Each sheet contains 30,000 rows of data in column A, C, E, G and I.
I want to find each cell of column A, C, E, G and I to another sheets column A, C, E, G and I respectively.
If match found then it should return "True" in column B, D, F, H and J.

I have tried VLookup, but it takes too much of time for calculation (1,50,000 vlookup Formulas needs to calculate in each sheet with If condition) some time calculation gives wrong results.

As well as I want to do filtering on this all the data... so that time calculation gives the problems (I have used application.Calculation=xlCalculationManual)

So now I am using Range.Find method, but that loop excecutes for 30,000 times and each ittration contains 5 Find methods.

Find Method Doesn't Work With Some Text

Jul 24, 2006

I have a spreadsheet with data similar to the following:

11100000 MILK, NFS

If I use the following code to pass in a string variable and then attempt to find the string it never sees the text in line 2; or any line that contains (). The code is simply a test to try and figure out what i'm doing wrong. The actual goal is to search the entire sheet for text similar to that entered in by the user and then copy every row that contains similar text into another worksheet.

Sub CopyStuff()
strVariable = "car" 'I have tried "*car*" also
With Worksheets(1). Range("b1:b500")
Set c = .Find(strVariable, LookIn:=xlValues)
If Not c Is Nothing Then
firstaddress = c.Address
Set c = .FindNext(c)
MsgBox (test)
Loop While Not c Is Nothing And c.Address <> firstaddress
test = c.Address
End If

Find Method To Search Time/Date

Aug 26, 2006

I am currently working on a VBA function that searches a spreadsheet for a particular time and date. In the time and date column, there exists a cell for every hour of the year from January 1st 12am to December 31st 11:00pm. So for any given date, there are 24 entires with the same date, but each with a different time (that is the intervals are in one hour increments.)

What I have been attempting to put together is a simple worksheet. Find method to search for a date, I.E. 1/22/2006 3:00:00 AM. I have read countless posts and websites saying that you must format the date and time into a window date format such as 1/22/2006, but you lose that time constraint. Well if I search for that in my spreadsheet, i have 24 cells that meet that criteria. Anywhere from 12AM to 11PM. But I may want the one for 11PM... Also, since find searches from top to bottom, I always retrieve 12AM since its the first hour of the day. I apologize for my wordiness, but It is kind of a complicated matter.
