Find Last Row With Text String

The following line finds last "non-blank" row in a column. I have a column that has formulas in 10000 rows. Most of the time only first 7000 rows will have data, other cells below will have "". I need to find the last row with real data, not "".

Is there a way to add a condition or check to the following line?

I am having trouble getting my IF statement to test if the cell contains the text "sale" return "X" if not "Y". I need it to search through the text string in that cell and find a certain word, and if it finds that word, retrn a value. I am really having difficulty with is what symbol or function do I use for the logical test? (i.e. =, <>, MATCH, INDEX?)

Match Row That Contains Text Text String; List Associated Values From Pivot Table
refer to the attached workbook for reference. I am looking for a function in Sheet1, Column E that will search for the value of Sheet1, Column A within Sheet2, Column A. When a match is found, the function should look across Sheet2, Columns B - V for values of 1. When such values are found, the function should return the associated value from Sheet2, Row 2. There may be multiple values of 1, and as such, the function should separate values with a comma.

Find Text In A String
I have the following string of text and want to take out certain parts of it. Assume the string is in cell A1.

In cell B1 I want "Company ABC DEF"
In cell C1 I want "10.50%"
In cell D1 I want "12/13/2014"

Company ABC DEF (USD) 10.50% 12/13/2014

how the MID formulas work (as a bonus)? I used =MID(A1,FIND(")",A1,1)+2,45) and it returns "10.50% 12/13/2014".

So I see that that formula says start from 1 character after ")", count 2 over, and then put in the next 45 characters. How do I do an in between amount, and how do I just have it come from the LEFT but stop when it finds " ("

Find Text String Value Between Quotes
Formulae Solution prefered if possible--

Is it possible to extract the two text strings between the quotes, placing them in Col. C & D respectively, e.g.
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, " ANTI ", " ANTI-HERO ")
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "SEC9", "SECTOR 9")
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "LNGBRDC", "LONGBOARD COMPLETE")

--Col. C---------------Col.D
SEC9--------------- SECTOR 9

There are three types of scenarios-
1) Values enclosed in quotes that begin and end w/ spaces:
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, " ANTI ", " ANTI-HERO ")

2) Values enclosed in quotes that does not contain a leading space or trailing space:
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "SEC9", "SECTOR 9")

3) Values enclosed in quotes that have a space between itself:
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "LNGBRDC", "LONGBOARD COMPLETE")

Find Text String In A Value Instead Of In A Formula
What formula can I use to search a range of cell values for a specific text string? My method is searching formulas instead, which is not what I want.

Background: I am developing a little test script for a project and I want to include some automatic validations to help make the job of the testers easier.

What I have set up so far:

1. Testers input numbers into specific fields M8 through M20.

2. Fields N8 through N20 automatically check fields M8 through M20 and compare those with what is contained in a range of hidden cells I set up in advance. A formula ensures that it reports "correct" or "incorrect" on a field-by-field basis, based on the comparison.

3. Cell O8 searches for the text string "incorrect" in cells N8 through N20. If that text string appears in any one of the cell values (not formulas), then O8 directs the tester to test again. If the text string "incorrect" does not appear, then cell O8 reports that the test was successful, and the tester can proceed to the next test (exact same setup repeats).

My only problem is in the formula used for the last step. I have tried a few different formulas I know in cell 08, but none are giving me the results I'm looking for. The closest I have come is a successful search and validation based on the string being in the formula instead of in the value of the given cell.

Find And Replace A Value In A String Of Text
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.

Find Number Within A Text String Using VBA

I can use formula but i can only display 1 number, so i think this might require a VBA script.Thanks in advance guys..

Insert Row Macro Based On Text String
I'd like to adapt my macro so that it would insert a blank row after it detects the the first 16 characters of text as "'Closing Balance"; or it could even detect "'Closing" as the first 8 characters if it would be simpler

The Data Begins in Row 5 of Column A

My Current Macro is as below which I have adapted from another one I used

It is not working since it is detecting for the exact text "'Closing Balance" whereas the data registry would write "'Closing Balance as at 31/10/2009" , of which the "as at dd/mm/yyyy" portion would change every time a report is exported, but the first part "'Closing Balance" or even just the word "'Closing" will always be the same.

Remove Duplicate Text From A String In A Row Of Cells

MOT 1/F1,
B/P 1f2,
B/P 1f2

In the string above I need to delete all text from the first comma to the end of the string so the above would look like:

MOT 1/F1

This is an example in one cell of many. The text prior to the first comma may or may not repeat and it is the only portion of the text I wish to keep. The first comma is not always in the same place (character count position).

Find Text In Column, Copy Next Row And Paste In New Sheet
Essentially, I have 2 Sheets:
"SheetWSS" = data to be copied
"SheetWSD" = destination of copied data.

Below is a sample of the data in "SheetWSS"
1------Trade ID -------Description---------System no.
2--------579----------------Loan ---------------------- 7
4--------702----------------Deposit--------------------- 11
5--------703----------------Loan ----------------------- 58
6--------732 ---------------Loan------------------------66
7--------733----------------Deposit-------------------- 99
etc...(no more than 10000)

Now, an explanation of the data:

1) I work for a small bank (CORP) that takes deposits and gives loan.

2) CORP books these trades using only system no. 7 and 11; other system nos. belong to customers.

3) When a single trade is booked, the 2 sides of the transaction is recorded (by Trade IDs) . E.g rows 2 and 3 relates to one trade. So if CORP loans money with system no.7 to CUSTB, who uses system no.22, it shows for CORP a loan and for CUSTB, a deposit.

4) Everyday, the data in "SheetWSS" is updated with a different number of rows from previous, but the number of columns remain the same.

So, here's what i'ld like the macro to do:
1) Go into Column C, find system no.7 and 11.
2) For each 7 and 11 found, Copy the next row . So if for e.g, system no.11 was found in C4, i want the ENTIRE ROW 5 to be copied.
3) Paste the entire next row in "SheetWSD" until we have a list of all opposing sides of the same transactions initiated by CORP.

VBA Macro To Find Text, Offset Column/Row & Copy

2. Offset to the 13th Column after that

3.Select the value in this column ,copy the value

4.Go to a row above and move one column to the left i.e.offset (-1,-1) and move 12 column backwards i.e.offset(0,-12)

5.Copy the value in 3 above to this entire range

6.Repeat this process for the entire file

My code is as below.Let me know where am I making a mistake. Just to let you know that this code performs the job well for the first entry i.e in the yellow makde area and doesn't do the job for any further entries .Llooks like I have some problem with the loop but not sure as to whats happening!

Find Text/Value & Use Found Cell, Row, Column In Macro Code
I am trying to clean up and simplify my macros by compartmentalizing frequently repeated commands. I like to search for text in column headings and define the cell containing it as a range that I can later use .column or .row commands on, so my macros are a bit more flexible. The code I currently use for this is

Dim XColumn As Range ‘the cell containing the text “X”
Selection.Find(What:="X", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
Set XColumn = ActiveCell

I would like to be able to create a Macro (possibly name FindSetCell()) that will accept arguments and achieve the results of the above code in other macros
I think the command might look something like FindSetCell(“text to be searched for”,”name of newly Defined Range”) But I have not figured out how to code it

Extract Multiple Text Strings From A Long Text String
An original text string entry appearing in an Excel cell would be:

"N7C Neuroprotective J5Z Antiviral, other M2Z Antiarthritic, other J5A Antiviral, anti-HIV"

I need to extract N7C, J5Z, M2Z and J5A from this string and list these alphanumeric values in separate cells adjacent to the original text string. The challenge is that these alphanumeric references may appear in different positions within the original string with no fixed value e.g. a "," separating them. The alphanumeric references may also be 3 or 4 characters in length and there may be different numbers of alphanumeric references in the original string.

Another example would be (very different from the first):

"T2Z Recombinant, other K5B Radio-chemoprotective J3Z Antibacterial, other D3A Vulnerary A10C Symptomatic antidiabetic K6Z Anticancer, other R8A Antiasthma B6A Septic shock treatment I1Z Immunostimulant, other S1Z Ophthalmological R8B Antiallergic, non-asthma M1A1 Anti-inflammatory"

You can see that in this further example "A10C" & "M1A1" are 4 character alphanumeric strings wheras the others feature 3 characters.

Check If Text String In Cell With Other Text Is In List
I have a sheet in which some of the cells have two strings separated by a linefeed. I have come up with a cumbersome formula which will let me check if either of the two strings is a member of a list stored on another sheet. However, it fails if there is only one string in the cell, presumably as there is no linefeed for the formula to find. How can I modify the formula to cope with this situation?

There are also on occasions, three strings in the cell, but I can't seem to access the middle string with the formula. Simplified spreadsheet attached to show the problem. This must be formula-based, as we have a no VBA policy. If you think there is better way of doing this, please let me know.
