Find String Within Worksheet & Handle Error If Not Found
Jun 17, 2008
Cells. Find(What:=searchterm, After:=Cells(1, 1), MatchCase:=False).Activate 'find pn that is stored in searchterm
causes a runtime error 91 when there are no results. "Object variable or with block variable not set"
Ideally, when there are no results, I would like to enter a loop, where I could provide a drop down list of fuzzy matches, but I am not sure excel can do fuzzy matches. I'd settle for just highlighting the row and moving on... any help?
ActiveSheet.Cells.Find(What:="AES", After:=Cells(1, 1), MatchCase:=False).Activate 'find the aes part number column
Dim aescolumn 'create variable for index value of aes column
aescolumn = ActiveCell.Column 'set variable to index number
I have the following macro which I've pieced together which works great at clearing the cell as long as the text entered by the user is found in the specified column.
Unfortunately I'm a big rookie with this stuff and I can't figure out how to handle the process/error when an entered value is not found. When ChosenRow returns with a 0 I get a Run time error '91', Object Variable or With Block variable not set.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() oldSheet$ = ActiveSheet.Name Dim ChosenRow As Long Dim loc As Variant Application. ScreenUpdating = False With UserForm4 loc = .TextBox1.Text End With With ActiveWorkbook Sheets("Reference").Select End With
I have searched the Forum for help on this error 91 but still cannot figure this out.
Below is a format macro I created. I have several ' Find' routines in here and at the beginning of each one I give it an 'On Error GoTo' type statement. This seems to work fine until it gets to a second error. I have moved various 'Find' routines around and it doesn't matter which order they are in, if there are two things it can't find, it gives the error 91 on the second.
Sub Format_SFDC_Detail_Reports() ' ' Macro to format salesforce.com reports with details. rguest '
On Error Goto errorhandler
Msg = "Do you want to format this report for Landscape (Yes) or Portrait (No)?" Style = vbYesNoCancel + vbQuestion + vbDefaultButton1 + vbSystemModal Title = "Format Report as Landscape?" response = MsgBox(Msg, Style, Title)
If response = vbCancel Then 'Exit the routine Goto last_line: End If If response = vbYes Then format_style = "Landscape" End If If response = vbNo Then format_style = "Portrait" End If
I manage to do a proper search and the return value is correct, but the problem is when I don't get the correct value excel gives me an error, what I can add to make the result just to give me MsgBox "Not found"?
Set Ran = Worksheets(2).Range("A:A").Find(CompName, lookat:=xlPart) If Not Ran Is Nothing Then MatchRow = Ran.Row MatchCol = Ran.Column End If
I am trying to do a sort of index match thing using VBA. What I am attempting to do is to use the prefix of a long number and try to find that exact prefix in a string array, and output that string array value. So this is what I have so far as a test:
So I can match the text exactly so if I put PREFIXB in cell A1 in this example, i will get the msg box saying "YES", but if I make it PREFIXB1231k4j3jj1kj32cj, it will display "NO". I want to get it so that PREFIXB will be displayed in the cell that I put the formula in. So if A1 = "PREFIX1AAA100CF" and cell B1 = "=ABC(A1)", cell B1 will display "PREFIX1AAA".
Now the thing is that these prefixes can have different lengths, but will never encompass the exact prefix of another. So if I had a prefix of: PRE1AB, I won't have a prefix of PRE1A.
How can I edit the following code. If the "Dload" tab is not there the code errors out. How can I make it so that if the "Dload" is not there the macro says "Dload tab missing. Do you want to check file and try again" If the user says yes. then the macro lets the user pick another file. If the user chooses No then does similar quesiton like I have here starting with
I have a spreadsheet which has "Employee: [agent 1 name]" in column A and it may or may not have the word "Break" in the same column before it mentions "Employee: [agent 2 name]". The amount of data between agent 1 and agent 2 varies and am needing code which will insert a row above "Employee: [agent 2 name]" if "Break" is not found, and add the word "Break" in column A on the inserted row. I would need this to loop through the spreadsheet until all 100+ agents have been searched.
I'm also needing this done for the word "Meeting" and would insert a row 2 rows above the next agent.
I would simply like a Macro to 'find' or search keyword data in a spreadsheet and copy the chosen rows and past them into a new excel sheet. I want to be able to do that as many time as I need, currently I have the following code, it does not seem to work well for me, I can only use it to search one time, cause an error after that
Sub FindIt() Dim rngWB As Range, c As Range Dim strFind As String, firstAddress As String Dim wsCount As Integer, ws As Integer Dim rw As Long strFind = Application.InputBox("Type in the name you wish to find.", "FindIt", Type:=2) Application. ScreenUpdating = False Worksheets.Add(After:=Worksheets(Worksheets.Count)).Name = "Blank" Sheets(1).Select...................................
the if stattement works perfectly and does exactly what i want except when it comes to the else part. if there is no error the statements are run perfectly but if there is an error (in this case the error is generated when a match cannot be found in the spreadsheet) the else statement doesnt kick in and post the msgbox. the code just crashes. and returns an error 1004 on the line i have highlighted in yellow
res = WorksheetFunction.Match(invvar, Columns(1), 0) If Not IsError(res) Then
I have some code that, although works fine in Excel 2003, does not in Excel 1997. I receive this error when I try running it:
COMPILE ERROR: NAMED ARGUMENT NOT FOUND
Sub HPVAL() Dim r As Range, myStr As String myStr = "HP" Set r = Cells. Find(What:=myStr, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt _ :=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _ False, SearchFormat:=False) If Not r Is Nothing Then r = r.Value While Not r Is Nothing Set r = Cells.FindNext(r) If Not r Is Nothing Then r = r.Value End If Wend End If End Sub
It looks like Excel is getting hung up on the "SearchFormat:=" portion of the code.
I would like to have a nested if or select case statement to handle a worksheet event. The conditions it will check are: 1.Make sure target is w/in range, otherwise EXIT 2.Make sure that target offset value is not empty, otherwise display message 3.All is good, open form
I’ve tried various formulations and positionings of the statements ,but not all conditions are met with equal success.
What happens is I get the the first two conditions, but the third doesn’t work.
I have a single button on a spreadsheet. When clicked, it gives me Error 91: Object Variable or With Block Variable Not Set. This is the button's Private Sub Analyze_Click() Dim TextToLocate As String Dim Searching As String Dim TechNum As String
' Error here at cells.find: Searching = Cells.Find(What:=TextToLocate) TechNum = Replace(Searching, TextToLocate, "") TechNum = Left(TechNum, 5) MsgBox TechNum
The purpose of the code is to:Allow the user to open a log fileIn the newly opened log file, find the string "Mobile Device : "Following "Mobile Device : " is a tech number. Strip out "Mobile Device : " and grab the first 5 characters of the tech number.Show me what the tech number is in a message box If I insert the code into the actual log file (no button and no opening of files), it works fine. I searched this forum and others and used everything I learned to find a solution, but the error remains.
I have two different functions, first is importing website to excel and the a second is testing string according to pattern. Each one of them is working ok. I'm trying to find a word " finance" in URL and put it into cell "A1".
Sub ParseWebsite() Application.DisplayAlerts = False On Error Resume Next For i = 1 To 10 SiteURL = "URL;http://www.cnn.com" With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:=SiteURL, Destination:=Range("A" & i)) .FieldNames = True .RowNumbers = False .FillAdjacentFormulas = False................
The error that pops up has no information other than "File not found" in a dialog box with two buttons.
File not found (Error 53)
The file was not found where specified. This error has the following causes and solutions:
A statement, for example, Kill, Name, or Open, refers to a file that doesn't exist. Check the spelling of the file name and the path specification.
An attempt has been made to call a procedure in a dynamic-link library (DLL) or Macintosh code resource, but the library or resource file name specified in the Lib clause of the Declare statement can't be found.
Check the spelling of the file name and the path specification.
In the development environment, this error occurs if you attempt to open a project or load a text file that doesn't exist. Check the spelling of the project name or file name and the path specification.
For additional information, select the item in question and press F1 (in Windows) or HELP (on the Macintosh).
I have a macro which prepares a report for equipment. The macro is a recorded macro and it runs perfectly on my system but when i am trying to run that in other system getting an error message"Error 448:arugument not found".Which i marked in red.
I am trying to search through column "I" for numbers that are decimals, when the first decimal is found, use the row number that the first decimal appears in the string that populates the bookmarks stored in a word template I have created. The code I have so far checks for the decimal and then populates the bookmarks, however it requires me to input the ranges manually, meaning I can set them as the first row in my tabel. But if the decimal appears in the second row and not the first I'm bookmarking the wrong data. Here is the code I have so far;
I am trying to count the number of specific words contained in a specific cell. If my data were static, and the list of keywords was short, there are many solutions such as using multiple instances of the length function as proposed by @shg here.
Suppose I have the following sheet: (column C is what I am trying to achieve)
A B C 1
That is, C2 will tell that B2 contained 3 of the keywords (1X beautiful, 2X happy) and so on.
I have a worksheet with several option buttons and until yesterday, I had no problem selecting them. But today, every time, I select a radio button, an error shows up stating "Cannot run Macro "Option Button_click. Macro is not available in this workbook or is disabled". When the user selects a radio button, text appears in Col B depending on what button was selected (using VLOOKUP). That stuff is still working fine. It's just as soon as I click a radio button, the error shows up.
Based on the radio button selected, user can add in information to the columns adjacent to it, and then click a button to store that information in some rows below. The code for that button is stored in the sheet module. I have tried enabling macros and disabling macros and no change has appeared. What I have noticed though is that yesterday, when i opened the workbook, a yellow bar appeared asking if I wanted to "Enable Content". Today, that bar didn't appear.
Anyone ever seen this error “File not found: VBA6.DLL” ?
This error happens when I press a button I’ve created in the sheet. Funny thing is that there are other buttons right beside this button and they all work just fine. I’ve checked the code and names of all the macros in the sheet.
I’ve recreated a different module and renamed the macro and attached the code to another button.
