Find Cells That Contain Special Character In Given Row - Return Corresponding Header(s)

Jul 21, 2014

I'm looking for a VBA Macro that will do the following:

1. Count number of cells in a given row that contain special character "*"
2. If there is an asterisk in a given row, return the column header(s) contained in row 1 of the spreadsheet that correspond to each instance of cell(s) that contains the "*".

Is there a way to do this? I've attached an example of what I'm talking about, (Column A shows the desired result.)

Find Last Entry In Row And Return Column Header?

Aug 1, 2014

I've got a spreadsheet with various amounts in cells A3:L5. I want to find the last non-blank entry in each row but only where the entry is in a column headed "Guaranteed PRB" (found in row 1). Then I want it to return the column header title found in row 2, which is a date.

I've attached a sample of the spreadsheet with the expected answer in column M.

I've got as far as formula:

=LOOKUP(2,1/(a3:l3<>""),$a$2:$l$2)

how to also make it look at row 1's headers too.

Find Value In Table & Return Column / Row Header

Nov 23, 2009

I am having trouble with getting a value (which is the row and column value) from a set of numbers. I have attached an example table to try and make things clearer.
What I have is a table with a set of Row Headers, and Columns Headers all numeric. e.g Columns headed 1, 2, 3, 4, Rows 30, 40, 50 etc. I want to find the 1st occurrence of a value e.g. 1.0 in the table (by 1st Up mean closest to top left), and then give me the value of the Row and Column Header that corresponds to that.

So for the example attached, I want to get the row Value 200 and Column 6 from finding the 1st occurrence of the number 1. I have tried various combinations of index and Match etc. But I can't get my head around the fact that the position of the 1st no. 1.0 can change, therefore I can't use any releative positions etc.

Find First Non Blank Cell In Row Then Return Column Header?

I have this table, which can be seen as a basic custom gantt chart: KLRWo.png

And I would like to fill the A column with start dates, based on the first filled cell of the range on the same row, and the header value of its respective column (row 1). It's easier to show my expected result than write it actually:

Find Matches In Multiple Columns And Return Header

Oct 29, 2012

Lets see if I can put this into words.

I am trying to find matches of a specific cell in various columns. Example:

Header 1 -------Header 2----------Header 3
-ABC123-----------abc123--------------abd123
-abd123-----------hjk321---------------hdn234
-Abc123-----------dsd123--------------sds332

If I searched for the value "abc123" I want it to return Headers 1 and 2 in a seperate column. It would not matter if the same value is in one column multiple times

So the results would show me the Column Heading for anything that reads: "abc123", "ABC123", "AbC123", "aBC123"

Is this possible?

I am working through all the email address's and lots are not valid ones, is there a way i can make some sort of rule that willl do the following

If ther is no @ symbol, in Cells A ( any of A ) it drops them to the bottom of the list, or anything that just splits them up

Eg

EFHWHEF@WEGFIW.COM
EKFGWIGF@YTRQUH.CO.UK
HJGIWEROPQWRP@WEYIO.COM
ASFHWIEGFIUQWEFH.COM

Naming Sheet With Special Character

Jan 18, 2010

I have a userform with a textbox and an OK button and having clicked OK a particualar sheet is given the name in the textbox. If the character '/' is included in the textbox a standard Excel message appears explaining that this character cannot be used. On clicking 'END' on the message the userform automatically disappears and I have to close the file and reopen to end another name.

Is there any way that I could introducing my own basic messagebox which says 'The characters /, ? etc cannot be used' and on clicking OK the userform stays and you can try again.

Search For Special Character * (Asterisk)

Jan 2, 2008

I'm working again with a large Inventory Database dump into a workbook and in the past the company appended the * character to designate an updated price on an item(column C). Its rocking my world to sort through things with this character as you can tell. I'm trying to find rows that column C has a * in, cut, and paste them into another sheet called "Updated". I would even accept just how I'd do a simple "find/replace all" on that character and then I can just update my macro and be on my way Anyway this is the macro thus far and as you can see it would just cut all rows and paste them to "Updated".

Sub Updated()
With Worksheets(1).Columns("C")
Set c = .Find("*", LookIn:=xlValues)
If Not c Is Nothing Then
firstAddress = c.Address
Do
c.EntireRow.Cut Destination:=Worksheets("Updated"). Range("A" & Worksheets("Updated").Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row + 1)
Set c = .FindNext(c)
Loop While Not c Is Nothing And c.Address <> firstAddress
End If
End With
End Sub

Excel 2003 :: How To Remove Characters To The Right Of Last Occurrence Of Special Character

Mar 30, 2011

I have a column of text where I need to remove all the characters to the right of the last occurance of a special character.

I think a process like reading from right to left, look for the first occurance of the special character, and return the characters to the left of this position.

If I can determine the position of the last occurance of the special character, I could use the LEFT function.

The SEARCH function is close. It finds the position of the first occurance of text inside text but it reads from left to right. I need to read from right to left.

Another approach is to examine each character one by one from right to left. If the character is not the special character, delete it. When the character is the special character, delete it and stop the process.

There is no consistency in the text. The total lengths vary. The number of times the special character occurs in the text vary. The number of characters to the right or left of the last special character vary.

I much prefer not to have the solution be some VBA because I need to share it with others who are even less capable than I am. We are using Excel 2003.

If / Or Statement To Return Header

Feb 15, 2012

I am working with data that has numeric values in columns S, T and U. In column M I want to return the header of the column that has the largest value (S,T or U).

Here is the formula I am trying to use:

=IF(OR(S2>T2,S2>U2),$S$1,IF(OR(T2>S2,T2>U2),$T$1,IF(OR(U2>S2,U2>T2),$U$1)))

The problem is that it only sometimes works properly. I have found instances where the value in column T is greater than S and yet column S's header is still returned. What am I doing wrong?
