Find, Replace With And Then Replace Adjacent Cell

Mar 18, 2009

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.

Find And Replace By Adjacent Cell Formula

Feb 4, 2014

Is there a formula that can find a keyword within a cell then replace it with a formula that will add the adjacent cell value up.

A1=103 B1=104
A2=104 B2=105
A3=105 B3=Out-1p-(1)
A4=110 B4=111
A5=111 B5=112
A6=112 B6=113
A7=113 B7=114
A8=114 B8=Out-3p-(23)

I am looking for a formula that can automatically calc (B3) to 106 (based upon cell A3) if the cell has a value of (*out*).

Find Values On One Tab And Replace Data From Adjacent Cell

Apr 3, 2014

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.

Using FIND Function In Macro To Replace Value In Adjacent Cell?

Aug 10, 2012

I am using a macro to find a value in a cell and if found, replace the value in the cell to the left. Thr macro works fine - unless the value I am searching for does not exist. The answer is ( Ithink) an IF statement, but I am having problems with the errors, when I try the IF.

The macro below blows up at the ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1) = "109073X line with an error "Run-time error "1004" - Application-defines or object-defined error.

I've tried a number of things I've seen from this board but have not found a way past the error.

If the value is found, the macro moves to the else statment and stops at the ActiveCell statement with the above error. If the value is not found, then the macro goto NotFound.

Sub Macro2()
'Range("A1").Select 'Start from the home cell
Dim ValueFound As Object
Set ValueFound = Cells.Find(What:="Cirrus Reversals/CREDITS")
If ValueFound Is Nothing ThenGoTo NotFoundElseActiveCell.Offset(0, -1) = "109073X"'ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "109073X"End If
End Sub

Find All Occurences Of 1 Value & Replace Adjacent Cells

Feb 15, 2008

On the worksheet, I need to find wherever the cell value begins '2 X 4 ...' in column L, and then replace the cell value in the same row, in column K, with '113010'. In my attempts, my code just changes the first occurrence, not all occurrences.

I want to use VBA to do this.

Here's my code so far:

Sub Update_Product_IDs()

Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Dim i As Integer, iCount As Integer
Dim numberOfPMDs As Integer
Dim PMD_Name As Integer
Dim worksheetName As String
Dim worksheets_in_file As Integer
worksheets_in_file = Worksheets.Count
worksheetName = Worksheets(2).Name
numberOfPMDs = worksheets_in_file - 1

Excel 2003 :: Find And Replace Missing The Ability To Replace Values?

Feb 5, 2009

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.

Find And Replace To Not Replace Characters Found As Wildcards?

Jul 2, 2013

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?

If Then Else Find And Replace Value In Another Cell

Aug 8, 2013

I have a file that I import into excel and append to the end of the last free position, However my totals are slightly out when compared to the main system.

I have found the reason why, they randomly slips in a Credit or credits.

So I have the scenario column P has a txt field and the majority of the time it has SI (Invoice) however when they issue a credit the txt becomes SC.

The annoying bit is that Column L has a value but it is not a negative number i.e. 75 where it should be -75

I can do an iF then and find the SC or SC's and I can place some text in Column L but I would like to be able to take the value in L and make it a negative number.

Replace Blanks With Adjacent Cells

Aug 30, 2007

I use an old accounting program to download sales history into excel. For sales where there is only one line item and therefore 1 row, there is no problem. Sales with multiple items show a summary of the sale in the first row and the line item details in rows after.

On multiple item sales (shaded in yellow), the total postage is shown in the summary row (shaded in orange). The postage fields in the line items are blank (shown shaded in blue). I need to split the total postage by number if line items and put the value in the line items. i.e. if the total postage is $10 for two items, I need to show $5 for each line item.

The summary row identifies the number of line items in the "Qty" column ( cells in green). This cell could be used to divide into the postage (in orange) and also count how many rows below to put the answer in

Macro Will Not Run Find And Replace With The Contents Of A Cell

I want to have a macro that will look at a few cells say A1 & A2 and then use the contents of the cells say 1Q07 & 2Q07 respectively to do a find and replace find 1Q07 and replace it with 2Q07. I want it to use the contents of the cell and not just the text because the contents of the cell will change each time used. I tride to do it here but I dont have it yet. It doesnt seem to pass the value to the variable and the variable doesnt seem to do the find and replace.

Private Sub Update_Click()

Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Dim quarter As String
quarter = CStr(txtquarter.Text)
txtquarter.Text = CStr(quarter)

Sheets("Income Statement").Select
Dim oneq As Single
Dim twoq As Single
Dim threeq As Single
Dim fourq As Single
Dim fiveq As Single

oneq = ActiveSheet.Range("A2").Value
twoq = oneq - 1
threeq = twoq - 1
fourq = oneq - 4

Find And Replace - Text Appears Three Times In The Cell

Apr 19, 2014

I am trying to use find and replace but the text that i'm searching for appears three times in the cell. I only need to replace the first occurrence in the cell. Alternatively, if there is a way to do this, can the second and third occurrence be changed?


Cheryl called Louie to advise she would be late for the meeting. Louie responded that he would meet Cheryl at her office. Cheryl confirmed.

I need to change the first 'Cheryl' to a job title and the second and third Cheryl to her initials (CL) so would read:

Manager of Aboriginal Affairs called Louie to advise she would be late for the meeting. Louie responded that he would meet CL at her office. CL confirmed.

Find And Replace Function Using Cell References And Wildcards

Mar 29, 2012

Any way to use a find and replace function involving a cell reference. I have a spreadsheet with ton of junky text burying information that I want. Here is a simplified example

Book 345353hg dgdgsdgfd fff Book belongs to Jim
Sneaker fdg4 Sneaker is worn by Jan
Gum dfg s d e te4345Gum tastes great
Cake jklsjflsjfjikCake smells delicious

The pattern is that the A1 text appears in the B2 text. What I want is

Find *A1
Replace with blank
Find *A2
Replace with blank
and etc.

So that in the end, I get this:

belongs to Jim
is worn by Jan
tastes great
smells delicious

I've looked at the functions of find, replace, substitute, left, and right and I can't seem to find the right one to do what I need.

How To Find Middle Initial And Replace With Blank Cell

Aug 28, 2012

I have a listing with Middle Initials in column D. D also contains dates and Names. I want to remove the Middle Initials only. I need to do this without moving around cells. So a Find:="A", Replacement:="" type of situation. Right now I have 26 two line entries to take care of this, but I know it has to be easier and use less lines. (Trying to consolidate code for a better look).

Here is some of what I have (that works, but is long):

' Replace Middle Initial from Prod Sheet
Cells.Replace What:="A", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder _
:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:=False, ReplaceFormat:=False


I thought that I might be able to do something like this, but I can't get it to work.


Dim Alpha as Variant
Alpha = Array("A", "B", "C", "D", "E", "F", "G", "H", "I", "J", "K", "L", "M", "N", "O", "P", "Q", "R", "S", "T", "U", "V", "W", "X", "Y", "Z")
For ABet = 1 to Cells(Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUP).Row
If Range(ABet) = Alpha Then Range(ABet) = ""
Next ABet

' or I thought maybe this would work.

Cells.Replace What:=("A", "L", "R", "M") Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder _ :=xlByRows, MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:=False, ReplaceFormat:=False

' or I thought maybe this would work with the variables.

If Range("B" & ABet) = Alpha Then Range("A" & ABet) = "" None of them worked though.

Find Cell Address Of VLOOKUP Result And Replace With New Value

Jun 21, 2013

I am using VLOOKUP to find the size of a cam to be installed in a tablet press, based on the product code it will be running.

The array has two columns: (W) Product Code, (X) Cam Size.

Array: W4:X437

The user selects the Product Code from a drop-down list in cell E5.

The resulting Cam Size is displayed in cell E7. The VLOOKUP works fine.


Occasionally, the cam size has to be updated. The user would then select a new cam size from a drop-down list in cell E9.

I have a "Update Cam Size" command button.

What I need to happen is for the value in E9 to replace the value in the array that is displayed in E7. Obviously, I have to know the location of the cell in the array, but I can't figure that part out. I've tried ADDRESS and MATCH functions, but it comes back with "#N/A" Value not available error.

3) Column 2 is what I want ever cell in Column 3 to change to when it matches the cell in Column 1

5) Then Replace the text in the 3rd Column with the corresponding text in the 2nd column

I need to find the "x" in range C2:C44 and replace it with a value (variable) specified in cell I2

The catch is that I then need to be ablt to change that character when I2 changes.

Coloum C


I2 - Variable = B
*T’x’STATUS will become *T’B’STATUS

I2 - Variable = A
*T’x’STATUS will become *T’A’STATUS

But " *OFF " should not change.

I can change *T’x’STATUS to *T’B’STATUS but then I can change *T’B’STATUS to *T’A’STATUS

Please see attached example file as it shows it better than I can explain it.
