Find And Replace With A New Line
I want to do a Find and replace a certain character by inserting a line break. I seem to remember that this was possible on older versions of Excel but can't find it now. Anyone know what I need to put in the replace field?

Find And Replace One Line At A Time
I find this data: X1 X2 X3 X4 X5
I replace to this: X2 X3 X4 X5 X6
I know I can "find and replace" one line at a time, But I want to do this-
I have 4 rows the same data:
X1 X2 X3 X4 X5
X1 X2 X3 X4 X5
X1 X2 X3 X4 X5
X1 X2 X3 X4 X5
I want to select all 4 rows at same time, (now, this is what I need help with is to end up with the following after using "find and replace" and adding 1 to each specific number without having to select and replace data one row at a time). If not "find and replace", how could this be done? In a nutshell I want to add 1 to each specific number as you go down the rows quick and easy.
X2 X3 X4 X5 X6
X3 X4 X5 X6 X7
X4 X5 X6 X7 X8
X5 X6 X7 X8 X9
Catching Errors When Using The Find / Replace Function / Replace All
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.
Find, Replace With And Then Replace Adjacent Cell
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.
Concatenate Cells & Replace Certain Character With Line Breaks
I have 2 sheets in a work book. Sheet 1 I paste information from an email into A4.
Sheet 2 gathers the information and places it in the cell formating the text so I can import it properly to another program.
I want to take notes that a person fills in (they fill out an online form with their personal information and sometimes leave comments, but not always) and paste this into Sheet 1. When I paste the comments into Sheet 1 it is pasted into mulitple cells. I want sheet 2 to format the text from these mulitples cells into one cell with spaces placed correctly ....
Replace Small Square Character With Line Break After Import
When importing text from a CSV, the 'line returns' appear in a cell as a small square with faded left and right sides. The do force a line break as intended. However, they are a nuisance in reading and printing.
When I use ALT+ENTER to force a line break, there is no visible character (on screen or printed) for the line break, which is as it should be.
How can I replace this 'special character' line break with one not visible?
Replace Line Feed With Carriage Return In Text File
If I write a multi-line text in a cell (then go down with alt+enter) and after copy the cell pasting on Notepad, it display before inverted commas and after textual content.
Instead, if I select directly the content from the formula bar, it isn't happen.
Do exist a way for copy and paste directly from the cell without select from the formula bar?
Maybe with a macro?
Find And Replace ....
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.
Is that possible to do?
Find & Replace In VBA
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:= _
Cells.Replace What:="#N/A", Replacement:=" ", LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:=True, _
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.
Find And Replace ..?
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.
Find And Replace ‘*’
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.
Vba Find Pattern Matching Whole Line

Macro For Find & Replace
I have a workbook (materials forecasting) that automatically pulls from another workbook (production schedule).
The materials forecasting workbooks are named in regards to the current Monday (ie 02-02-09.xls, 02-09-09.xls, etc). The production schedules are named in accordance with the financial periods and weeks, ie PD1WK1.xls, PD1WK2.xls, PD1WK3.xls, PD1WK4.xls, PD2WK1.xls, etc
The materials forecasting sheet looks two weeks out.
EXAMPLE (pretend that today is the first day of PD1WK1)
Cell C1 will reference PD1WK1.xls
Cell C2 will reference PD1WK2.xls
Each week I copy the old materials forecasting sheet and rename it to the current week (ie I take 02-02-09.xls and rename it to 02-09-09.xls). I have a bunch of macros set up to move my deliveries up a week and what not. One macro I would like to set up, however, is that by putting a value in a cell the find and replace macro will work.
Cell A1 will reference PD1WK2.xls
Cell A2 will reference PD1WK3.xls
Cell C1 will reference PD1WK1.xls
Cell C2 will reference PD1WK2.xls
Then I would have the macro find all instances of whatever value is in cell C2 and replace it with whatever value is in cell A2. Then likewise fore C1 and A1 respectively. (If you think about what I am doing here... all I am doing is moving the schedule up one week so that I am forecasting using the right schedule).
I can manually do this but I would prefer a macro based on a simple user input for when people fill in for me.
Find / Replace Two Different Chars
Assume someone typed the hereunder date ad TEXT.
The Formula bar shows: ="01/01/2009"
The cell presents: 01/01/2009
I need to remove the equation sign as well the two inverted-commas.
I am familiar with the "Text to Column" feature, the use of SUBSTITUTE Function, a short macro and also the Find&Replace is also a good idea but, as far as I understand,
it must be run Twice(!)
I am looking for a way to use Find&Replace in "One! shot" - meaning, to put the TWO different(!) characters [ the '=' and the " ] in the 'find what' window,
leaving the 'replace with' window empty.
I know that something similar to that can be done in a "Word" document - but can it be accomplished in Excel?
Using Wildcards In Find & Replace

Macro To Find And Replace
I had written a macro about two years ago that replaced longer company names with common abbreviations. I store it in Personal.xls, and it has been relatively fast (2-5 sec for most projects with < 2000 rows). However, I tried it on a file with 15,000 rows, and it choked Excel - i.e. it wouldn't run and had to be force quite (Excel XP on Windows 2000).
Here is a portion of the macro (I have about 40 companies that need to be abbreviated, names here have been simplified to protect the guilty ). I stepped through a couple of these lines to see what would happen, and each line took at least 1-2 min.
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Cells.Replace What:="Company AAAA", Replacement:="AAAA", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows
Cells.Replace What:="Company BBBB", Replacement:="BBBB", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows
Cells.Replace What:="Company CCCC", Replacement:="CCCC", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows
Cells.Replace What:="Company DDDD", Replacement:="DDDD", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows

Find And Replace With Lists
I am trying to do a find and replace on two list of names which are in different formats to get the list in a correct format for processing in our system.
Sheet1 - Column A - (Has Duplicates)
Sheet2 - Column A - (unique values only)
JONES TOM I1234
SIMPSON HOMER I4321
I want a macro/method of looking at Sheet1 Col A - finding the EXCAT name in Sheet2 ColA and then either Replacing Sheet1 Col A with the Text in Sheet2 ColA or putting it in Sheet 1 ColB next to the one i need to replace.
Sheet1ColA || Sheet2ColA || Sheet1ColB Or Sheet1ColA
-------------- || ------------- || -----------------------
Tom Jones || JONES TOM I1234 || JONES TOM I1234
I have Approx 4187 names to check like this and change to the same format as is in Sheet2 Col A
So a looping macros that looks at sheet1 col A and then finds the name in Sheet2 Col A i think is required, if it does not find a matching name it should leave it BLANK and then move on to the next one to find and replace.
I have tried to split up the cells in Sheet1 ColA into FName, Lname..then doing Vlookups, but thats not working for me
Multiple Find And Replace
I need to recode 30+ files the have the old account numbers and I need to replace them with new codes ie
I have an excel spreadsheet which contains some 800 accounts in the format above showing old account number in column A and the new account number in column B. How would I write the VBA code to search all files in a specified folder search all rows in column E and find/replace using my spreadsheet containing the mapping details as above?
or in the very least just be able to run a macro to replace all the old codes in an individual spreadsheet.
Find Replace And Turn To Value
I import alot of data from a banking site and for some reason I get a column of data which should be values but is text. It also has a large number of different currency symbols etc preceeding them.
Can anyone think of a way a macro could be run down the column and strip out the symbols and prefixes and leave the remain numbers as a Value not Text.
Bulk Find And Replace
I am attaching a sample excel workbook for reference. I have a set of coded data in numbers in ColumnA, and want to replace them with actual names which are in Column G.
As explained before, I set up columns such that all template number codes are in Column F and names in Column G. The actual raw data in Column A.
However the macro is giving me wrong replacements i.e. if the coded number was 21, its replacement is name2name1 not name 21, I hope you understand what I am saying.
It will save me bucket loads of time as I have a multiple similar columns. I am a novice in macros so I am not sure how to find full numbers (21) and replace with the specific name.

Find & Replace Link
In a worksheet, I have 15,000 links to data files as follows:
'C:DataA2[DataA2] and so on.....
I would like to replace them as follows:
'C:DataB2[DataB2] and so on ....
As you can see, I only want A to be changed to B, however, when I use Find &
Replace, it will prompt me the location of the new link file for every single
replacement.. 15,000 !.
Find/replace And Wildcards
I have about 80 cells in a row with a varient of this in it:
The strings on the LookupData sheet change to look for different things, but
I want to modify to this:
I can locate all the cells in question using EDIT>REPLACE,
But when I put this
in the ReplaceWith box, and try to replace, I get an error message saying the formula contains an error.
Once I figure this out, I'm filling down about 60000 rows, so I'd like to get it right the first time.
Find And Replace In Formulas
I have various formulas (such as: =(D3-$E$3)/$E$3 )
which continues for each row (IE next row 3 is replaced with 4 etc)
I have made som errors when I made the formulas and therefore I have the following questions:
1. Is it possible to find and replace all E's with another letter (F in my case). I haven't been able to resolve this, when it has to be done inside formulas?
The optimal would be if I could set 'Display formulas' under tools, and find and replace in the formulas displayed.
2. Is there a smart way of swapping D3 with E3 for all formulas? (So the result will be: =($E$3-D3)/$E$3 and etc for all formulas)
Userform Find And Replace
I have attached my spreadsheet. What I am trying to do is to be able to search for data on the Data worksheet (to get to the user form I click the modify referral on the out worksheet). The code I have so far works but when I search for records that have duplicate "cmm" values it only fills in the first 10 fields on the form with the appropriate info. For example in the attached file if you click on the CMM text box and type in 6262 then find it comes up with 2 instances of 6262. but when you click on each individual record in the list box only the 1st 10 textboxes change with the appropriate info.
Find And Replace On Every Worksheet
I need to do a find and replace on cell E13 on every worksheet in the workbook - a several hundred pages. The sheets are individually named not Sheet1, Sheet2......
First of all I need to find say "oldchippy" (without quotes) in cell E13 and if its there replace it with "oldchippy2", if its not there leave the contents as it is.
Find/Replace (Selection Only)

Repeated Find And Replace
I have a sheet "Pattern" with a series of statements in column A, starting at row 12. These contain a lot of common words like 'a', 'and', 'that' etc which I would like to automatically remove. On a separate sheet 'Library' in column D I have a list of these common words which I would like to look through one by one and remove from the statements on the 'Pattern' sheet.
The code I have at the moment looks like,
For i = 3 To 65536
Dim w3 As String
w3 = Sheets("Library").Cells(i, 4).Value
Selection.Replace What:=w3, Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
But this only achieves to remove the contents of the 'Pattern' sheet, column A..?? Where am I going wrong? Also, with this method if I find and replace 'a' with the 'LookAt:=xlPart' option, is this going to remove all 'a' 's, even if they are in the middle of a word?
Find And Replace Certain Characters
I have some records that include greek addresses. The greek alphabet contains letters that are common to the english one (A,B,E,Z,H,I,K,M,N,O,P,T,Y,X) and records with mixed characters will cause me problem. What can I do to find and replace any of those letters with the greek version of the letter.
for a record:
T.È.5123 (this is the Greek abbreviation for P.O.BOX 5123)
I'm looking for a function to replace the first letter T (wether is Greek or English) with the Greek version of it
KYMHÓ 6 (kimis is the street, 6 the number)
I should replace English (first four ) letters with the Greek version...
BAËÁÙPITOY 14 (valaoritou is the street, 14 the number) ...........
Find/Replace Values With X
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...
Look, Find, And If True, Replace?
I have two groups of numbers. The first group is x amount of rows and each row has 6 numbers. The second group is x amount of rows and each row is 7 numbers.
Each number from the first group needs to check to see if it exists in the second group. If it does exist, the cell should change to a highlighted cell, or switch to an 'X' or something else that identifies it has been matched. Note: Numbers may be duplicated in both groups. Is there an easy way to do this, or will it involve programming? I'm attaching an example of the "group" setup.
Find And Replace Letters
i have colums of data containing random figures containing letters and numbers.
I want to completely remove the letters from the colums, leaving me with just a numerical figure. Is there a way to do this? There is no set pattern to work with as there could be 1 cell with 2 numbers and 6 letters, and the next cell may have 6 numbers and 1 letter.
EG: COLUMN A
I want this to simply be
EG: COLUMN A
Find And Replace With Loop
I have a sheet with data on it. In column 5 I have adate range and I would like to delete and values which have "01/01/1900". Currently I have created a loop but for some reason it does nothing. I can use the find option and it picks up the cells with the ones on. For some reason it seems that it cant find them cells.
The code is as follows
rowcn = 8
target_sheet = "Status Report"
'status_flag = 0
If Sheets(target_sheet).Cells(rowcn, 5) = "01/01/1900" Then
Sheets(target_sheet).Cells(rowcn, 5) = ""
rowcn = rowcn + 1
Loop While Sheets(target_sheet).Cells(rowcn, 1) > 0
Find And Replace Not Working ...
I'm using Excel 2007 and trying to replace about 2000 commas with full stops. I want to use find and replace but keep getting a message saying that Excel cannot find the data I'm searching for.
Excel help suggests I haven't clicked on "find" before clicking "replace" but I did.
I've tried highlighting the column in which I want to make the replacements, but same message.
Also tried highlighting nothing, same message.
Tried copying and pasting the whole thing into a new file, but same message.
Dynamic Find And Replace
Is there a way in which you can use two cells (a2 & b2 for example) with a button to trigger a macro which will search for a2 and replace with b2 over a certain range of cells? unless there is a function to do it of course, which i would prefer!!
Find And Replace From An Array ?

I have an excel spreadsheet that has an instruction page for the first worksheet. I have included screen shots for clarification. One of the screen shots is of the Find/Replace window. Sure enough, when people started looking at this sheet, they tried to click on the picture of that window to use it. I would like to make it so when they click on this picture they either a.) Open that command window or b they can start using it right there and not be able to move it so the next person will always be able to use it from the start.
Find And Replace :: Code Numbers
Hey Have a spreadsheet with about 150 worksheets in.
In Column B of each worksheet is a list of packages
Value Added Processing
I need to add into that other cells to further divide those packages so it will end up looking like

I have a separate worksheet which has the 37 different package types along ROW A from Column A to Column AH, then going down underneath each of the heading is the various code numbers as shown above.
Has anyone got a VBA code which will allow excel to search the worksheets, find the package name and then replace it with the package name but also insert the code numbers below it.
Find And Replace Blank Characters
I download several sets of data from an internet site. The only way I can do this is to copy and paste into Excel. The problem is, that all of the cells with numbers in them show up as text, and when I press F2, I find that there is a blank space at the end of each number.
Find and replace, searching for a blank space does not work - Excel "cannot find any data to replace". That function does work on cells in which I have created my own space at the end of a number, but not on these numbers. That leads me to believe that that "blank space" is actually some other invisible character that I need to be searching for. I've attached a bit of my data - maybe somebody else can identify my phantom character.
To get around this, I have been using the formula =(left(A1,len(A1)-1), and that works, it's just that it is a pain to create another table of 20-some columns with this formula, then copy those to values, then for each column convert text to columns to change the text to values, then search and replace for #value! where the original cells were blank.
