Find Multiple Numbers In One Column And Replace With Single Phrase In Another Column

Jan 31, 2013

I have taken over this spreadsheet for my work, and it is basically a statement in excel. What I want to do is find a list of invoice numbers in column B populated from a remittance, and then replace column F to say a specific thing depending on check number and date paying for that invoice. So if a check printed today I would have it replace column f to say paid 1/31/13 check # xxxxx. Currently I am searching for each invoice indivudually and then replacing with check number and date. There are about 200 invoices per month that I deal with, and it is a big waste of time!

For example from this

invoice #1 / reconciled (DATE)
invoice #2 / reconciled (DATE)

To this:

invoice #1 / paid (DATE) check # (xxxxx)
invoice #2 / paid (DATE) check # (xxxxx)

Find & Replace With Column Data

May 30, 2009

I was wondering if it is possible to perform a find and replace which would replace data from another column. We have a lot of data fields of our inventory that we exported which we are trying to condense for another program.

Example: I have a description column (AV) that has [[Manufacturer]] within the description. We want to find [[Manufacturer]] and replace with our data column (DD).

This is the data that has our manufacturers name in it. We have several find and replaces to do within the description column besides the above field.

Macro For Find & Replace

Feb 10, 2009

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.

Macro To Find And Replace

Dec 31, 2003

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.

Sub ChgCompNames()
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
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Find Numeric Codes In A Column And Replace In Vba

Oct 18, 2007

I am using the following vba code to find numeric codes in a column and replace them with the same code along with descriptive text:

Selection.Replace What:="11", Replacement:="11 - GSA"
Selection.Replace What:="10", Replacement:="10 - NYS OGS"
Selection.Replace What:="1", Replacement:=" 1 - Dist Sale"
Selection.Replace What:="2", Replacement:=" 2 - Direct Sale"
Selection.Replace What:="3", Replacement:=" 3 - No Sale: Warranty Exchange"
The problem as you might already see is that when the replacement of "1" happens, Excel will replace the 1 in the 10 and 11. Of course I want to only replace the number 1. Is there a better way to code this operation?

Find And Replace Script / Macro

Jun 22, 2008

Find and replace script / macro?

I'm not sure what type of function is needed for what I'm describing below. I'm thinking it is a script or macro? I don't know anything about writing scripts or macros and I am quite new to excel.

I'm trying to learn chinese and am making chinese flashcards for myself.

The fact that some of the cells have chinese characters probably doesn't matter, but I just want to be thorough in my description....

Macro Find&replace Only Exact Value

Sep 24, 2009

This macro finds and replaces multiple values found on another sheet. however, it does not only take the exact value, also others.

If i want to change "Example 1", "Example 2", ... "Example 10" into "One", "two", etc. Example 10 then changes into "One 0" because it changes the Example 1 (without the 0 in 10) into One. Is there any way to alter this (or do you have another macro to replace multiple values?

Find Replace Macro Stops After Row 37

Oct 2, 2008

Here is the find / replace vba I am using.

Sub Replace()
Cells.Replace What:=Chr(19), Replacement:="-", LookAt:=xlPart
Cells.Replace What:=Chr(24), Replacement:="'", LookAt:=xlPart
Cells.Replace What:=Chr(145), Replacement:="'", LookAt:=xlPart
Cells.Replace What:=Chr(146), Replacement:="'", LookAt:=xlPart
Cells.Replace What:=Chr(160), Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart

End Sub

It makes the replacements up to line 37, then stops. If you then delete the first 37 rows and re-run the macro, it again performs replacements, but only on the next 37 rows.

I would like the macro to do the whole sheet...

Find & Replace Across Two Workbooks - Macro

Oct 24, 2006

I have two worksheets in two separate workbooks. One contains only two columns - a list of codes and the corresponding name of an institution. The other workbook contains a column with the codes. I want to replace the codes in the second workbook with the names from the first workbook.

I found this code on [url] here: Find & Replace macro

Sub DoIt()
Dim rRange As Range, rCell As Range

On Error Resume Next
With Workbooks("Personal.xls")
Set rRange = .Sheets(1).Range("A1", .Sheet1.Range("B65536").End(xlUp))
End With
For Each rCell In rRange.Columns(1).Cells
Selection.Replace What:=rCell, Replacement:=rCell(1, 2), _
LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False
Next rCell
On Error Resume Next
End Sub

This is exactly what I need, but like the last person who asked about it, I can't get it to work. I've gone through Dave's instructions a number of times, and now I'm stumped.

Excel 2010 :: Find And Replace Within Specific Column?

Oct 1, 2012

I have an excel workbook where some sheets have a column called "Name" in Row 3. The column where "Name" appears shifts based upon other criteria so it's not set within 1 specific column.

The real data for the "Name" column starts in Row 5. Is it possible to create a macro that looks in Row 3 for "Name", then once it finds that column, it does a find and replace from Row 5 to the end of the data and replaces every space with a ^.

For example, if I have:

Row 3 Name
Row 4
Row 5 John Smith
Row 6 Jane Doe
Row 7 John Doe
Row 8 Jane Smith

I'd like the data to become:

Row 3 Name
Row 4
Row 5 John^Smith
Row 6 Jane^Doe
Row 7 John^Doe
Row 8 Jane^Smith

I'm using Excel 2010 if that impacts anything.

Find Certain Text In Column And Then Replace All Similarities From Another Cell

Nov 6, 2013

I'm trying to find a function, or conditional format, that will allow to find certain text in a column and then replace all the similarities from another cell.

So basically, I have 3 Columns.

Redundant Text
Replacement Text
What The Text Currently Reads

Red Hats
Save On Red Hats Online
Black & Red Hats

Blue Jeans
Find Blue Men's Jeans
Blue Jeans On Sale

1) There is text that is recurring in the the thousands of the cells of Column 3.
2) I have used a program that found the recurring data, and put them in Column 1
3) Column 2 is what I want ever cell in Column 3 to change to when it matches the cell in Column 1
4) Is there a function that will find text in the 3rd Column that matches text in the 1st column (multiple cells in the 3rd column will match one cell in the 1st column)
5) Then Replace the text in the 3rd Column with the corresponding text in the 2nd column

Find And Replace Different Values In A Range Of Cells

May 8, 2008

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.

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

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

Apr 3, 2007

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
fiveq = oneq - 5

Macro To Find Specific Text In Column And Copy Certain Cells In Same Row To Different Sheet

Dec 30, 2011

how to work macros or VBA

I have a workbook with multiple sheets named by month and year that I use to keep track of loans I work with at a bank. In these sheets I have info such as:

Column B = due date
Column D = loan# A
Column E = loan# B
Column F = status
Column H = followup needed
(Columns A,C, and G aren't important for the current need)

What I am trying to do is create a main sheet (TRACKER) that all I will have to do is press a macro button and it will pull info for each loan that is in a pending status.

I need a macro that will search column F (Status) on all sheets and find each instance of "Pending" and once that is done, copy rows B,D,E, and H in each "Pending" instance and copy them to their designated area on my TRACKER sheet. After that is done I need it to continue to the next "pending" instance and do the same on the next available line on my TRACKER sheet.

The overall goal would be that everyday I can press the macro and it will repopulate the sheet with the current pending items (as each day I will change pending status' to complete and no longer need to track it the next day).

I already have the tracker sheet set up and ready to go with the spaces as follows:
Column G&H = Merged cells where due date will need to go
Column I&J = Merged cells where loan# A will need to go
Column K&L = Merged cells where loan# B will need to go
Column M thru S = Merged cells where followup needed will need to go
