I have a simple problem I am trying to find a set a values on a column and what to replace once found with the first 5 most left characters. Example:
in column A I can have text and numbers; the numbers that I want to find are in the following format xy:zw / xy:zw on each case the values can be from 0 to 9 so this is tons of posible combinations, I been trying to use **:** ? **:** but I don't get none. This is what I am doing
Set target = Sheets("Sheet1"). Range("A1:A9000")
For Each cell In target
If cell.Value = "**:** ? **:**" Then cell.Value = "00.00"
A example would be 02:47 / 03:15 the next row could have 03:15 / 04:09
and so on however I could have text in some rows. In reality I would like to find and replace the cell.value with the Left 5 characters if the cell contains ANY value maching that format. Text in that column will never have that format combination
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 have a column of over 20,000 rows, showing employee hire dates. For the purposes of a specific calculation, I want to replace all the hire dates that are prior to 1/1/2011 with 1/1/2011. Is there a simple way to do this all at once with a Replace statement in my code without having to look at each record individually?
I know how to replace one specific date with another all at once, but I don't know to do it when I'm looking for more than one specific date.
I've got a piece of code I'm stuck on. Basically, I have a range of data and most cells are empty. However, I want to replace all the nonblank cells with an X. I can't quite figure out how to have the code replace something non-specific...
I would like to be able to replace all cell values in a range of 20c by 20r (i.e. 400 cells). In all cases the condition would be the same (find all cells with a value greater than than zero), but then replace with different values.
e.g. Cells with value >0 in range CX119:DQ138 replace with "NT", then cells with value of >0 in range DR119:EK138 replace with "NU"
I thought you could do it with find and replace by just selecting that range of cells but can't see how to set the conditional >0 bit.
I am copying fomulas from one row to the next. Then I am using the Find and Replace tool to replace some key text. This technique has worked 65 times. Now when I try to Replace All a box comes up asking me to Update Values for the text im replacing. Why is this happening?
Iíve created a form, from which I want to search and replace information into several sheets. Ex: When I select the button Ďfind recordí after entering a name, I want it to search through consecutive sheets to find the name and populate all information associated with that name into the form. From there, I would like to be able to edit that particular recordís information in my form and then select another button on my form Ďupdate recordí to have the information automatically replaced back into wherever it finds that recordís name in the sheets.
Here is the problem: A1 contains : current model numbers, B and C contain new model numbers and corresponding old part numbers. Based on Column B and C I need it to go through and find all the old part numbers in column A and reaplce it with the new part numbers: Here is my table:
Current # NEW AFS# current # 10773650204020000216802606 10773652204022000116035305 10773653204023000115744805 10773654204023000215744806 10773657204023001215744881 10773658204023022715744844 10773659204024000115836205
For example, I need it to find all instances of "10773650" (first data in column A) and look in column C to find the corresponding number if it exists, if it does exist I need it to be replaced by the corresponding data in column B
I have one sheet in my workbook called 'mapping' which has a list of codes on it, the length of which will vary on a periodic basis.
I have another fairly large sheet on the workbook called 'data' (around 2000 rows) that will also vary in size. I want to do a search on the data tab for each code that is contained on column 4 of the mapping tab and if the code is found, enters the corresponding value from column 1 of the mapping tab to the cell 6 columns to the left of where the code was found on the data tab (cols H and B in this case).
The issue I have is the codes maybe contained more than once on the data tab so I need the find/replace command to search the whole of the data tab and perform the task each time.
So I have a list of organizations in Column A, with multiple names (anywhere from 0 to 50 names) for each org. in Column B.
Org Names Company A Brown, Jones, Smith, West
I want to do a find and replace for all of Column B, where all the names are replaced with their respective color values. If possible, I'd like this to all happen with the individual cells (so for example, B3 might go from "Brown, Jones, Smith" to "Red, Red, Blue").
If that's not possible, I could divide all the names into individual cells and then find and replace.
Is there a way to find and replace the values from a closed workbooks of a folder. say i have some 15 files in a folder c:/test
I want to find all "Ltd" and replaceAll with Limited and find all "Co" and replaceAll with "Company" etc (some 20 different values to be found and to be replaced) if this is in a single file i can easily record a macro to this job, i am stuck for doing 15 files at one shot.
I have Excel 2013. I would like to use the code below but I need it to let me select the range instead of specifying it in the code, then pop up a form into which I can fill in what I want it to search and what I need it replaced with.
I have an excel workbook with 60 sheets (each contain data in the same categories and in the same column locations, just different information on each sheet). What would the VBA code look like if I wanted to manually enter the find and replace values and perform the function (find and replace) across multiple sheets in the workbook?
I'm looking to return the values in column A adjacent to the cells in Column B equal to "Y". The kicker has been returning only the cells where the condition is true. Column C displays the desired behavior.
The closest I've been able to get is with a simple IF statement but I'm pretty sure the answer is a far cry away from there and likely requires an array formula. I'd prefer not to use VLOOKUP or OFFSET but will if the alternative is very complex.
I have three columns of Data. A is vehicle number, B is miles and C is a Date. I want to be able to pull the miles for the newest date when the user types in a bus number next to the formula. I think It can be done with an array formula but I am not 100% sure on how to do it. Also is it possible if they enter a vehicle number and a date that a different formula finds the miles for the most recent date to the date entered.
For the above, the sum value should be 500. I have written the following function to calculate the same. On uncommenting the line 'paid = CStr(paidvar)' the value is displayed as '#VALUE!'. On uncommenting all commented lines, the value is displayed as 'Paid'.
Function PAIDAMOUNT(amountRange As Range) As Variant Dim count As Long Dim paidvar As Variant Dim paid As String Application.Volatile True PAIDAMOUNT = 0 For count = 1 To amountRange.Cells.count paidvar = amountRange.Offset(count - 1, 7 - amountRange.Column).Value 'paid = CStr(paidvar).................
I'm trying to sum across multiple worksheets based on a simple condition. I have a time sheet with a worksheet for each week (52 worksheets). I've gone back and added a column to code the type of work done, types 1 - 17. I want to sum the hours of each type across all worksheets. This is what I have that doesn't work:
I am working on creating a simple Excel Database of an Engineering Tool Room Inventory for work. However I can not seem to get one particular 'NESTED IF Function' to do what I want it to do. (In advance warning, I may be going down the wrong route and might have used the wrong Formula in Excel but from my understanding the 'IF' function seemed the most plausible.
Issue: All I would like to do is for a NESTED IF Function to be able to say this:
1. When a user inputs data into one column, for example 'Column A', with the following data: 4" Square 2. Then the neighbouring column, for example 'Column B', would have a NESTED IF Function. 3. Which would output a logical response, "A, B, C, D, E, F etc...", depending on what is written in Column A. If 'Column A' - 4" Square, Then 'Column B' - A If 'Column A' - 5" Square, Then 'Column B' - B & So on... But the NESTED IF Function should only put a logical response if there is certain values within the cell, for example: User types a value into 'Column A' which contain - 4 & S, Then 'Column B' - A User types a value into 'Column B' which contain - 5 & S, Then 'Column B' - B & So on...
Currently to do the above function, I have utilised the following Excel NESTED IF Function:
& The following happens: 1. User inputs data into 'Column A' 2. The NESTED IF Function then provides an automatic response. 3. However it relies on the data being inputted without the ' " (Quotation Symbol)' 4. & With me defining the exact phrase that should be typed into the cell, for example, "4" Square"
Other: I have attached an example worksheet of the NESTED IF Function in practice, with two tables. One showing what is happening with the code above and one table showing what I would like to happen but with no function.
I have been struggling with this formula for ages and have finally given up. What I would like to do is to do a lookup on the concatenated values of Province, Department and Initiative No, which has mutiple values in the status of milestone column, and then give the answer based on a condition.
The condition for this example should be, that if the returned status / or statuses of the initiative is all 1, then the value should be 1, if it's all 2, then the value should be 2, and so on.....but if the values returned from the status of the initiative is a combination of 1,2 or 3, then it should give me the answer 2. If 4 is part of the comination of values returned, then the value should be 4.
Zero - 0 should be excluded from the formula as it is part of planned values and not actual.
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 have a workbook with 20 sheets in English Language, but I must to translate in Russian. Translating has done by human translator, so translation is good. I must change phrases and words in english to russian. I can use find/replace function but doing by hand it's very tie consuming. I need VBA or macro who takes values in column A, finds it in entire worksheet and changes it to matching value in column B. Is it possible and how I can do it?
