# Find Number Combination In A Group Of Cells

Oct 28, 2011
I'm looking for another excel game changer (for the work I do anyway).

I have a dollar amount, and I want to know if any combination of dollar amounts in a particular range of cells will equal that dollar amount. Is this possible in Excel?

Example: I have 20 different dollar amounts in a column. I want to know what combination of those 20 different dollar amounts, if any, will equal $257.97. The dollar amount I'm looking for and the numbers in the range will change with each use. I'm hoping for a formula, but VBA will work too as I could just make a template and copy / paste the numbers in.

I have a column of references I wish to standardize. Contained within a general text description there is also an order-specific reference number, which is not relevant for my purposes. I wish to find all of these numbers and replace them with nothing (i.e. retain the rest of the description).

The reference numbers are always in the format "P#####/##". Unfortunately these references are in the middle of the text field, not at the start or end, so I can't use a LEFT or RIGHT formula to delete them.

Once these reference numbers have been deleted I will then be able to filter for unique records only. When I do this at the moment the filtering has no effect due to these specific reference numbers.

The numbers are file attributes, as you know these are

Normal = 0

Read Only = 1

Hidden = 2

System = 4

Volume = 8

Directory = 16

Archive = 32

These numbers are cumulative, so if a file has an attribute of 5 it is Read Only and System (1 + 4), it can't be anything else. Or if it has an attribute of 6 it can only be Hidden and System (2 + 4).

What I need is a spreadsheet that calculates every possible combination of these numbers, so I can check my Select Case statement has covered all possible combinations.

If it was just a one off project I could just work it out "by hand", but I have realised that there are several other projects I have that this would be useful in.

e.g. I am doing a skills matrix at work. If I give each skill a number, then give each employee a cumulative total number then I can have a spreadsheet that shows their skills. For each employee number there will only be one possible combination of skill that add up to that number.

My employer often adds new skills, so each time this happens I will have to check every combination is covered.

So I really need a spreadsheet solution, something I can input a group of numbers and it will show me a list of every possible combination of those numbers. The number of numbers in the group will vary, so a solution that only works for a group of (say) 6 numbers won't work. It has to work on a variable group of numbers.

i have a worksheet that is about 100rows x 100columns.

i would like to create some code to find a certain record. for example..

a1 a2 a3 a4

the record might be " tony tony alex tony"

basically, this group of cells could be any where in the group and i need some code to search the worksheet and then outline it. i just want to be able to find a certain block of cells and outline it.

I have an excel file, where there is a section "Additional Requirements". This section is repeated like 20-25 times in the sheet and has a group of merged cells below it to enter data as shown in the picture. Issue is that majority of these "Additional Requirements" are not filled by the user. Hence maybe only 3 or 4 are filled and I have to manually delete the rest. I tried the code below, but it doesn't do anything.Running the macro just jumps the cells slowly downwards the sheet. Maybe if the macro runs 10-15 times it reads the whole code and then moves on to the next row.8-1-2014 12-43-27 PM.png What I'm trying to achieve is:

1. for the macro to find "Additional Requirements"

2. Then check the Merged cell below it (thus the offset)

3. If this cell is blank, select this cell and the cell containing "Additional Requirements"

4. Delete entire rows of these cells/delete the selection (entirerow.delete). (I read somewhere to set a variable as selection and clear it, hence ive included in the unreadable code. This wasn't working either)

Conditional formatting. I want to change the color of a group of cells based on data in another group of cells. Example:

If cells G8 and G9 (which are merged) are between 80% and 94%, then I9,I10,I11 (which are merged) will turn Yellow. Also, under the same scenario, IF G8 and G9 is greater than 94%, then cells I9, I10, I11 will turn Red.

how to use the group box to group a number of option buttons together.

Question is, lets say, i have a total of 4 group box. if i want it to work in such a way where by once 2 option buttons are being selected (1 option selected from each group box), the rest of the option buttons in the 4 group box will be greyed out. is that possible?

I have letter and number combination code in two collumns and they differ for 10.000 numbers:

BAM98314

BAM88314

BAM90000

BAM80000

As you can see the left code is for 10000 numbers higher. the letters are allways the same. In the event that this isn't so, if difference between codes in same row is more or less than 10000 numbers. I was thinking on making conditional formating so the cells with wrong difference would be marked red, but I do not know how to make formula for this difference.

I am trying to write VBA code that groups cells between blank rows and inserts a message if a string of text (a name) is missing from the entire group. I want the code to search cells in column A and group the cells between blank cells. Use the name I input in an input box as the search criteria and insert a message in the Column C next to the last blank cell in the group and then move on to the next group and highlight the cell in red with bold text. I am including a spreadsheet with an example of what the sheet should look like before and after the code is run.

I'm trying to figure out how to setup a worksheet to find the most common 2 digit numbers going vertically from the bottom(cold) to the top(hot) it would consist of 90 digits 0 thru 9

it would look like this

4 0 3 9 0 4 3 3 2

9 2 5 6 5 6 9 6 6

8 9 9 3 1 0 2 9 8

1 6 7 5 9 9 8 2 5

2 7 2 2 2 8 5 1 3

0 1 4 7 4 7 6 0 9

3 5 6 4 3 3 0 4 4

7 8 8 1 8 5 7 8 7

5 4 1 8 6 1 1 5 1

6 3 0 0 7 2 4 7 0

each vertical line would be considered weeks 9 thru 1. week 9 would be the first vertical line of digits on the left. it could also contain the most common 2 digits horizontally. Both 2 digit values would be color coded ex. blue equals most common 2 digit horizontally and green equals vertically. I would also like to color code the most common 2 digit value diagonally as long as it is the most common of either the vertical or horizontal 2 digit. Each number is seperate on the worksheet they would not be pairs. im using excell 2003.

I guess this would work in a similar manner as Solver, but where Solver tweaks cell values to equal a given total, I've got a set of cells and I need to find the combination that equals an amount in another cell. Is there a way to do this?

I want to convert a Lexicographic Index Number, better known as Combination Sequence Number (CSN) to a combination using an EXCEL formula.C(n, k) Lexicographic Index Numbers, where n is the total numbers drawn from, and k is the total numbers drawn.

I have a lookup table in cell M1:R56 which holds the correct data, that I am pretty sure about.

In cell G1 I have the Lexicographic Index Number I want converted to a combination.

In cell J2 I have the value 39 (n).

In cell I2 I have the value 5 (k).

In cell K2 I have the formula =COMBIN($J$2,$I2).

In cell A1 (the first number in the combination) I have the formula:

=IF(G1=0,"",$J$2-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,6))

In cell B1 (the second number in the combination) I have the formula:

=IF(G1=0,"",$J$2-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,5))

In cell C1 (the third number in the combination) I have the formula:

=IF(G1=0,"",$J$2-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1))-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,1),$O$1:$R$56,4))

In cell D1 (the fourth number in the combination) I have the formula:

=IF(G1=0,"",$J$2-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1))-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,1)-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1))-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,1),$O$1:$R$56,1),$P$1:$R$56,3))

In cell E1 (the fifth number in the combination) I have the formula:

=IF(G1=0,"",$J$2-($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1))-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,1)-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1))-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,1),$O$1:$R$56,1)-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1))-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,1)-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1))-VLOOKUP($K$2-G1-(VLOOKUP($K$2-G1,$M$1:$R$56,1)),$N$1:$R$56,1),$O$1:$R$56,1),$P$1:$R$56,1)))

This works for the vast majority, but gives an ERROR when numbers 35,36,37,38,39 are in the combination, but funny enough NOT all the time.Lexicographic Index Number 575757 which is the maximum combination gives ALL ERRORS.

I'm currently trying to make a sort macro that sorts a row of data that has a combination of numerical data and the text entry "N.A."

e.g.:

My field:

1

2

N.A

4

5

N.A

9

I want to sort the cells by descending value. But the result appears as:

My field:

N.A

N.A

9

5

4

2

1

But I want to numbers to appear first and have the "N.A."s to be after the number, since I have about 100 columns and some rows have like 30 N.A., which is pretty bad for usability if all that appears in the first screen are "N.A."

EDIT: by the way by ascending the data is fine since it orders by smallest number to largest and THEN the "N.A."

I am using a pivot table to explore the relationship between the two variables in a survey. Question 1 is a "choose all that apply" question, while Question 2 is more "if you said yes to any in question 1, choose all that apply".

So, I have about 10 filters for question 1, where each combination will give me a different number for the responses for question 2. My question is this: How do I get excel to automatically find the # of individuals with the particular combination of filters in question 1?

Ie. if said yes to 3/10 options in question 1, how do I get excel to find out how many actually said yes to the 3/10 questions.

The purpose of this data is for reference to question #2, so that i can utilize some percentages.

I would like to check a combination of two cells, if these two cells are both empty (not zero, just blank) then it will return a blank in another cell. I tried using AND but am unsure how it works. I would like to use a "Case" Function.

Function FirstCheck(Count1, Count2)

Select Case FirstCheck

Case Count1 = "", Count2 = ""

FirstCheck = ""

Case Else

FirstCheck = Abs((Count1 - Count2) / (Count1 + Count2))

End Select

End Function

We are trying to track the average star values of reviews posted to our clients accounts. Here is an example of the spreadsheet we have set up:

Company Name

Review 1

Review 2

Review 3

Review 4

Review 5

Company 1

[CTY] 4 Stars review content

[ISP] 5 stars review content

[GGL] 4 stars review content

[CTY] 3 stars review content

[YELP]5stars review content

In this example, we use the initial [ ] to track which site the review was posted on ex: [CTY] means city search, [GGL] means google, etc.

We want to be able to track the average star value on each site. So the formula for City Search would scroll across the row of reviews, pick out reviews 1 and 4 and then find the first number in each and average them. The result in this case would be 3.5

From the research we have done so far, this looks like it will require a complex array formula. How to make this formula? Is this even possible what we are trying to do?

I have this formula in columns C:D and G:F -

Try this formula. Array formulas will have curly brackets {} emcompassing the ENTIRE formula. You do not add these, you Enter the formula with Ctrl+Shift+Enter and Excel will add them (details: Array formulas). Many more Excel Formulas

=IF(ISERROR(MATCH(A1494,Jan07!A:A,0)),"",INDEX(Jan07!A:B,MATCH(A1494,Jan07!A:A,0),2))

Some of the cells end up with nothing in them. Columns E and H are the differenced of C & D and G & F respectfully. The problem is that some of the cells in E and H state #VALUE! because there isn't any data in the other columns (C2 is blank, D2 is 24, E2 is #VALUE!). If I update C2 with 0 then I receive the correct answer in E2 of -24.

I want to have a macro auto fill all blank cells (even though there is the formula in them there isn't data) with a "0". I am using the below code and it is Compile error: Type mismatch at the "True" part of the code.

Sub FindEmptyCellAutoFill()

Dim rFound As Range

With ActiveSheet.Range("C:D", "F:G")

Do

Set rFound = . Find(What:=" ", LookIn:=xlValues)

If rFound Is True Then AutoFillValue "0"

If rFound Is False Then Exit Do

Loop

End With

End Sub

I have different products with different sizes becoming operational in various months & years. I need to sum those sizes that are operational in a given month/year. In the example below, I have

-product A with 100 unit size, operative since 2007/03

-product C with 200 unit size, operative since 2007/10

So in the table with months on left, and years on top,

from 2007/01 to 2007/02, value must be 0,

from 2007/03 to 2007/09, value must be 100,

from 2007/10 to 2008/06, value must be 100+200=300 and so on.

For this specific example, I tried the following:

Code:

fill to E7
