Find And Replace Certain Signs In Column - VBA

Sep 3, 2013

Column H contains alphanumeric data (codes).

I need a macro that renames all cells in column H starting with the letter "B" by replacing B with "Temp" and thereafter cuts the last two digits of the code. B224501 would thus be Temp2245.

Replace 2 Characters Signs In Cell With Another

Mar 15, 2008

QUESTION: How do I check to see if a cell contains either "" or "/" and if it does then replace it with "-"? THE REASON: I have a form which needs to be saved in a particular directory with the name "Form 1 - client name - matter name". To do this I have put =("G:UsersCComplianceFile OpeningForm 1 - "&B7&" - "&D42) in Cell A1 and then in VBA added the following macro to a button which saves the file

ThisFile = Range("A1").Value
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=ThisFile

This works ok BUT, if the user puts "/" or "" in either B7 or D42, it won't save and throws up an error because you can't use those signs when saving a file.

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.

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:

Range("Q:Q").Select
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?

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.

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

Deleting Signs Or Letter In The Beginning Of A Column?

Nov 29, 2007


I have many excel wordlist, which are being converted from other file formats. Now there are sometimes useless spaces before entries in the cells. There are also some times commas and other not needed signs at the beginning of a cell in a column.

I need a macro, which removes spaces, symbols, letters, numbers or combination of them from the beginning of all cells in a column. The symbols should be chosen before the macro starts its work.

For example:

Before running the first macro:

Column A
,Word1
,,Word2
Word3
,Word4

After running the macro the beginning should be cleaned from chosen symbols, spaces or signes. (in our example if a cell begins with , then the commas should be deleted).

Column A
Word1
Word2
Word3
Word4

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?

Find And Replace ....

Jun 9, 2009

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

Nov 15, 2006

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:= _
True, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
ActiveCell.ClearContents
Trying this
Cells.Replace What:="#N/A", Replacement:=" ", LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:=True, _
ReplaceFormat:=False
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 ..?

Mar 2, 2007

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 *

Sep 15, 2006

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.

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.
