1) search column A for a string
2) as that string is found, move the entire contents of that cell to the same row, column F
3) insert a blank row above the row where the text was found
4) continue to search and perform the same steps
I was able to come up with the code to find a single instance and perform the necessary steps, but I've tried 'til I'm blue in the face to incorporate the FindNext object to parse through the entire worksheet. I thought I was on the right track with the attached code (which could be completely wrong), but it returns my MsgBox "Value Could Not Be Found."
Column A contains an alphanumeric string up to 50 characters in length. I need a formula to search the string in Column A for the word "Appeal" and place that word in Column B when found. Likewise for the words "Grievance" and "Complaint". If none of the three words are found in Column A, the contents of Column B should be blank. Here's the formula I've played around with (it works on the first line but returns #VALUE! on following lines):
I would like to search cells in column D for the partial string, "PIPE," (A full string may look like this: 'PIPE, 24"ODx0.375"WT API-5LX-65,ERW OR SMLS'). Then, if it's there, return the value "LF" in the corresponding cell in column C. If that string isn't found, then I'd like it to return "EA".
I know this seems pretty easy, but there's a small problem. The word "BENT PIPE," could be in Column D, in which case, I would want it to return "EA" instead of "LF".
I am trying to write a macro to search a column for a specific text string which when found, will copy the whole row the string is in. Once this row has been copied, I then want the macro to activate a new sheet and search for the next available empty row to paste the data. Once this has been done, go back to the original sheet and find the next cell in the original column with the specified text string and repeat until the range has been satisfied. Below is the script I have that sort of works.
I have a spreadsheet which has "Employee: [agent 1 name]" in column A and it may or may not have the word "Break" in the same column before it mentions "Employee: [agent 2 name]". The amount of data between agent 1 and agent 2 varies and am needing code which will insert a row above "Employee: [agent 2 name]" if "Break" is not found, and add the word "Break" in column A on the inserted row. I would need this to loop through the spreadsheet until all 100+ agents have been searched.
I'm also needing this done for the word "Meeting" and would insert a row 2 rows above the next agent.
I am trying to lookup if a string like a name exists in another string which has a buch of values for example to see if andy exists in a string which has data like andy;sandy or sandy exists in andy;sandy
I used to dabble in QBasic and VBA programming in my youth, but I haven't done any programming in so many years, most of my prior knowledge is gone. What this means is that I'm picking things up reasonably quickly, but I don't really know what I'm doing at all. Anyway, I'm trying to setup a script that uses Find to search for a particular phrase, deletes the entire row if it finds that phrase and repeats the process until it has deleted every single row that contains that phrase.
is it just me and my copy of Excel 2003 or does the following code taken directly out out Microsoft Visual Basic Help result in a run-time error, with the last "Loop While Not" line of code highlighted as the problem?
I was trying to get a multiple find working on my userform, and was always getting the error, so thought I'd try the code in it's most basic form, and I'm still getting the error?
With Worksheets(1).Range("a1:a500") Set c = .find(2, LookIn:=xlValues) If Not c Is Nothing Then firstAddress = c.Address Do c.Value = 5 Set c = .FindNext(c) Loop While Not c Is Nothing And c.Address firstAddress End If End With
I'm sure I must be just doing something stupid!
This code goes through the range A1:A500 and replaces any cells that contain the value 2 with the value 5.
I am using Range. Find() and Range.FindNext() Method. As per my knowledge FindNext() advances in the text and searches for same string found using Find(). I have used Find() for two different searches in Sheet. (Eg. Find() text "Risk" and Find text "ACL", Now when I use FindNext() for the second time (to search "ACL" text), next time when I use FindNext() to search first text ("Risk" it searches prev text - "ACL"). I have used them in a loop. Below is the code i have used.
Set SrcCell = SourceBook.Worksheets(1).Columns("A").Find("Risk", After:=Sheets("SubArea").Range("A21"), LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole) 'Set srcCell = SourceBook.Worksheets(1).Columns("A").FindNext Set firstSrcCell = SrcCell Do While Not (SrcCell Is Nothing) tgtCell.Offset(tgtRow, 0) = SrcCell.Offset(-1, 255) tgtCell.Offset(tgtRow, 1) = subAreaId tgtCell.Offset(tgtRow, 2) = SrcCell.Offset(0, 1) tgtCell.Offset(tgtRow, 3) = SrcCell.Offset(1, 1) tgtCell.Offset(tgtRow, 5) = SrcCell.Offset(3, 1) tgtCell.Offset(tgtRow, 6) = SrcCell.Offset(2, 1) RiskId = SrcCell.Offset(-1, 255) 'tgtCell.Offset(tgtRow, 0) = SrcCell.Offset(0, 255)...............
I'm trying to use the .Find and .FindNext functions to find how many cells in Worksheet("WAS") have the same value as the ActiveCell (B3 in this case) on the Worksheet("DDS"). Basically i'm just trying to figure out how many times this sub goes through the Do While loop. However, "tick" keeps coming back as a value of 1. I know there's something I must be doing wrong or something i'm not allowed to do but i'm still pretty new at this.
I keep getting that error when I'm running my macro. When I debug, it points me to the bolded line in the code below. The larger macro I'm running this function in runs this function some 101 times without error before this happens.
The values of the parameters are as follows when it gives me the error: Find_Exact("hchen", ws1, "B:B"). The first parameter is the only one that changes in the previously mentioned running of this function.
I have a column with text that can contain a number of words one of which is 'UK & Europe'. I want to have another cell which will contain the value EMEA if the the cell mentioned above contains the word UK. how to do this as I'm stumped... I get a #value in cells that dont contain the word when using the formula =IF(FIND("UK",H27),"EMEA","ROW")
I'm using the following code which is working well. It finds an instance of the string "A83". Once it finds it, it moves down x number of cells and populates it with a new string. It then moves down another x number of cells and populates it with another new string, etc.
The problem is, it is only looking for "A83" one time and performing the appropriate actions at that point. What I need to do is look for *every* instance of the string "A83" and perform the appropriate actions.
I have a table of data and i need to search the table for 8digit numbers, that are beginning with "2" and copy the numbers to the column on the right. A cell can contain multiple numbers with 8 digits.
I use the following code to search through a database and paste the results in a separate worksheet.
Private Sub TextBox8_KeyUp(ByVal KeyCode As MSForms.ReturnInteger, ByVal Shift As Integer) sheets("Search Results").Unprotect Dim cell As Range Dim foundcell As Boolean If KeyCode = 13 Then Application. ScreenUpdating = False Application.enableevents = False If Not TextBox8.text = "" Then For Each cell In sheets("Detail").Range("e2:e" & sheets("Detail").Range("e65536").End(xlUp).Row) If cell.Value = TextBox8.text Then foundcell = True With sheets("Search Results").Range("e65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1) .Value = cell.Value .Offset(, -4) = cell.Offset(, -4).Value .Offset(, -3).Value = cell.Offset(, -3).Value .Offset(, -2).Value = cell.Offset(, -2).Value .Offset(, -1).Value = cell.Offset(, -1).Value .Offset(, 1).Value = cell.Offset(, 1).Value ................................
I'm getting an input string from the user in an excel sheet(e.g. input.xls) .I have to search for that string in a group of excel files present in the same folder in which the input.xls file also present.The range of that cell in which the string is found (e.g. A1 ) has to be stored in a variable.
I know that Vlookup is an option but the number of excel files to be searched is more that 50.
If I have a store number (say 1234) and I am trying to search for something which contains 1234 (i.e. the whole string of ABCD1234, ABCD1235, ABCD1236 etc) is it possible to do this in one VLOOKUP formula?
One way of doing it would be to VLOOKUP("ABCD"&"1234",....) but I would rather do it the other way around, to prevent the formula from not working.
I have about 700 cells I want to interrogate. Within each cell the following text appears “Estimate – BOLB/02/1234 – Some more text here”. I want to search all the cells and delete the cell contents but leave the “BOLB/02/1234”.
The problem I have is that the string is different in each cell but the format is the same. It always starts with BOLB followed by /, followed by 2 numbers, followed by / followed by 4 numbers i.e. BOLB/**/****.
