I'm using a query that dumps information into Excel. The query automatically creates a formula in each each cell. For instance if the first value in the query showed FUNSTUFF, after dumping it into Excel, the contents of the cell would show ="FUNSTUFF". I can just use a find and replace to get rid of the leading =", but sometimes the values of the cells are supposed to have a quotation mark, so using the same method to remove the trailing quote won't work. I need a way to search each cell, check if the last character in the string is a quote, and if it is, delete it.
I have the following line of Selection.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="=2009_15", Operator:=xlAnd
The highlighted portion is going to change from week to week. I have never been able to put a variable inside of quotation marks. I am sure it is simple, which explains why it is out of my mental grasp. how I can assign a variable in there?
To prevent the display of values in a worksheet, I have used an If statement in the format: =IF(I67=""",""",I67). This generally works well; however, I have discovered that if the input value for I67 is actually zero, there is no value displayed in the cell. I need the value to be displayed as a numerical zero so that it can be used in subsequent calculations.
I have an excel program that reads a file and prints it to the work sheet, but I can't figure out why it puts quotation marks around the line of text. I would like to remove the quotation marks from column A and column D.
I would like to query your knowledge database (too much VBA I guess ) as I have a predicament that I cannot seem to solve.
Here is the thing: I am trying to write a sub that would enable me to automatically put in place extensible name ranges (the Offset worksheet function).
The problem is that, despite everything seems to go well, the reference in the name box displays : ="DECALER($C$2;0;0;5-1;1)" (the string comes from a variable and Decaler is Offset in French). These quotation marks are the culprits for sure, as taken off the formula works beautifully.
I've tried everything I've found on the internet, that is to say: Replace(String, Chr$(34), "") so on and so forth, but these marks are not recognized a part of the string so they escape the replacement.
I am having a problem with the correct coding needed for a qotation mark
i wish to place a quotation mark around some text with coding example "TEST" by using the code below this appears fine and looks fine when i save the file, however when i open that file in a .txt file i see """TEST"""
This is the coding i am using and can see it may be where the problem lies
As a data download I got a block ** text with each item enclosed in "" "" and comma delimited. I converted to a table and copied the column I want to a 2003 excel file. How can I remove " " and treat column as simple numeric? I will then have to convert large application to 2007 as I am in that now.
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 recently became owner of a spreadsheet with some issues, and I am trying to make it useful. Each row has a URL of a blog post, and I want to extract the date from it (which is present in each URL) while getting rid of the rest of the URL. I was able to get rid of everything up to the year (which comes first), but then the URL continues, for example, 2013/05/16/the-rest-of-the-url/ and I would like to just have 2013/05/16 remain.
I am trying to use find and replace with the find box reading 2013/??/??/*/ and replacing it with 2013/??/?? which effectively erases everything else in the url, but leaves ?? instead of the numbers. Is there any way to have it so that it keeps whatever was in the original box?
Need assistance with the code for catching errors when using the find / replace function in excel? In particular, I am trying to write code to break to an error message when the value or string searched for isn't found in the find / replace. At the minute I have just copied the standard code using a macro and all this does is return a message box saying X entries replaced.
I am trying to create a macro where it finds a a certain word in a column for example C. What i want it to do is find anything that says FWD_EUR and then replace that cell (e.g C2) with CASH_EUR_FWD and after it has done that it replaces the adjacent cell (e.g. D2) with EUR_FWD. I then want this to do the same with FWD_USD to CASH_USD_FWD and adjacent cell to USD_FWD.
I was wondering if it is possible to do this unique find and replace that is explained below.
I have many columns with data from our database. I have one column that has my html layout in it. I want to find within the html text data and replace it with data from another column for that row.
Example: We have [[manufacturer]] in the html area that we want to replace with data from our column called Manufacturer. So, it will replace the text in the html named [[Manufacturer]] with that rows Manufacturer data we have.
I have around 10 names which I want to replace with their code names. For Example, "Alan Richard" needs to be replaced with AR001. Problem is I don't know cell range and this name might appear more than once in the data.
I am trying to find and replace #N/A from a formula (link to another sheet) with nothing in the cell, using VBA.
Using this code it will do the first "find" Cells.Find(What:="#N/A", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt _ :=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _ True, SearchFormat:=False).Activate ActiveCell.ClearContents Trying this Cells.Replace What:="#N/A", Replacement:=" ", LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, _ SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:=True, _ ReplaceFormat:=False LookIn:= is highlighted and I get a "named argument not found" Don't understand that because LookIn:=xlValues works in the first code.
I did try and place After:=ActiveCell,before this, but that does not work. I Get the same error.
I have more then one cell with the #N/A which I would like to get rid of. I want this to work only on this one sheet. The other sheet that the formula is pulling from does have #N/A, and that is okay, I need it there.
I have a list of sales associates that are assigned numbers. For example, John Doe is 1022. The data I have to work with only shows his number 1022 but for my reports management wants the name John Doe. I have about 60 sales associates and have a VB code that 'finds and replaces'. The code is huge. It has slowly grown out of hand, with more sales associates added daily. I also have 22 sheets in one workbook with specific columns to search for the numbers to replace with the names.
This is what I would like to do. Have a sheet named associates, as more associates are added I would just have to add their name and number. Have two columns with headers column A - Associates column B Associate #. Name ranges for the two columns and write a code that says look in the sheet associate, at named range 'numbertoname' and if the current sheet 'total sales' I am in has the number 1022 in column C replace it with the name John Doe. It seems like it should be easy but.......I have tried and tried today.
I am facing a strange problem with Find and Replace function of Excel. I converted a PDF document into a Word document. I copied the tables in the Word document to an Excel document. As the data had many ‘*’ characters, which I did not want, I used Find and Replace function to get rid of them. However, to my surprise, two things were happening.
1.When I tried to replace ‘*’ in a cell with ‘ Construction revenue ********************** ’, it was deleting all the contents of the cell. 2.When I tried to find all the cells with ‘*’ , it was selecting cells even without ‘*’
I tried various things like changing the format, pasting only values..etc, but nothing worked. Finally I had to use the Replace function of VBA to do the task. For further analysis I am attaching my Excel file with that data.
