Finding Cell Based On Text In Currently Selected Cell?

Jan 25, 2012

Macros question - The user enters a word, e.g. Malaysia in a particular cell (always the same location) and I want the macro to be able to find the next cell with that word in it, but it appears that when using macros you can't paste anything into the find function, so was just wondering what to do!

Search Cell For Text String And Paste Text In Based On Finding?

Jun 29, 2014

I need to create a macro to do the following:

Search the activecell for a text string (a), and then either paste in text string (b) at the end of the cell if (a) is found, or text string (c) if (a) is not found.

For example, if the activecell has "AA/" in it, I want the cell to become "AA/01" (pasting in "01" at the end), and if the cell has just "AA" in it, I want it to still become "AA/01" (pasting "/01" at the end). The macro will be linked to a commandbutton.

Finding A Formula Based On Text Input Into A Particular Cell

Aug 22, 2014

I do data entry for a driveway company. I get addresses and phone numbers, and then call the people to offer services. I keep track of my calls on the spreadsheet, color coded for my results, green for leads, yellow for voicemail/no answer, and red for not interested.

I have formulas in cells M2 through M8 to give me my overall stats for the calls I have made, it filters them by color for leads, missed calls, and rejections, and a couple other stats (mostly for my own curiosity)

What I'm trying to add is the cells L10 to M13, I want to be able to input a date, for instance 8/15, and have it run the same stats, just for that day essentially. So, I need it to search the last 2 columns in the table for the text that I input into cell M10, and then run the color based formula on those cells, and total them up in the appropriate cells, M11, M12, and M13.

The 2 Stats tables are the same at the moment in the sample, as I only included one particular street that I have mapped, my actual table is nearly 3000 rows.

Changing Cell Text Color WITHOUT Using Conditional Formatting Based On Finding Keywords

May 29, 2012

I have a spreadsheet that uses VB macros to calculate sums of cells based on the font color of the numbers inside. It used to be fairly easy going through each cell and "classifying" them by color, so that my macros can go ahead and sum the numbers in each respective color's cell... but now I have a huge amount of numbers and would like to automate the process somewhat. Here's an example using the A and B columns:

flight $400
hotel $150
hotel $130
meal $20
meal $15
flight $350

I tried using conditional formatting to automatically change the color of the adjacent cells based on the presence of a keyword such as "flight" or "hotel", but this change is only cosmetic, and doesn't actually change the font color (it is still the default black, hence why my color-summing macros won't work!).

I'm including a sample macro for what I use to color-sum my cells, but what I am looking to automate the color-coding process based on looking for keywords as explained above in my example. Here is one of the working color-summing macros (for red, in this case) if you'd like to use it as a reference:

Function SumRed(SelectedCells As Range)
' Adds the values of the cells where the font colour is red(3).
Dim Cell As Object
Dim x As Double

[Code] ...........

When User Enters Data Into One Cell - Selected Text Prints In Another Cell

Jun 20, 2014

I am trying to do is to make it so that users can enter data into my form (I have managed to create the form and am working on trying to figure out how to get the info entered into the form to appear in my worksheet) and then the data will cause the information to, basically, compile sentences that I want to appear in one of three cells at the bottom of the worksheet.

Essentially, at this point in time, the end goal is to make 3 cells that contain text. Eventually, this text will be indexed elsewhere, but that is for the next person to deal with. I am creating a prototype that I want to present as a process improvement.

So, when the user selects 3 in cell D7 I want the text "Customer purchased 3 Widgets at $20 each." to print in cell 82B.
I also want the user to be able to copy and paste some customer records from another program directly into a cell in the form that will just print (unchanged) into one of these boxes, too.

Lastly, I want the user to be able to select checkboxes that will, when selected, print a comment that will print in two of these boxes. For example, if the user selects yes for cell D26 then I want the text "Customer not eligible for free shipping" to appear in both cells C82 and D82.

Finding A Cell In A Variable Location Based On The Contents Of The Cell

May 2, 2012

I am creating a macro to automate data analysis for work, but I've become stuck.

I need to find the coordinate of the first cell in a column with word "reserved" or "extended" contained in the cell, and then assign the row number of that coordinate as a variable to use for moving data around. Basically, I want something like VLOOKUP, but instead of returning a value, I want it to return the coordinate.

Finding Part Of Text Then Copy Value Of Other Cell

Mar 26, 2014

Here's the situation (an example):

I have sheet1 that contains the following information

Column A Column B
company1 - book value 0,5
company1 - earnings 0.2
company1 - R&D 1111
company1 - total assets 200000
company2 - book value 2
company2 - earnings 333
company2 - total assets 12

So column B contains only numbers and note that for company 2 I do not have any numbers on R&D.

I have in sheet2 only once the company name. I would like now that if column a contains the text "book value" to have the value of column B pasted in sheet 2 column B. Same for earnings to be pasted in column C. R&D in column D and if R&D is not present for that company then the value should say something like unknown.

Cell Formatting - Red Text If Cell Matches Certain Condition Based On Another Cell

Sep 24, 2013

I have one column that contains a monetary amount (column AQ) , and another that contains text reading either "inflows" or "outflows" (column AC)

When AC says "inflows", AQ should be positive, and when AC says "Outflows", AQ should be negative.

I need the text in column AQ (the monetary amount) to become red when the the opposite is true.

i.e. When AQ is negative and AC says "Inflows", AQ should become red. And when AQ is positive and AC says "Outflows", AQ should become red.

Deleting Selected Data Based On Cell Value?

Oct 23, 2013

I have attached a sample file.

There are two sheets Stock and BrancnID The stock sheet has a very huge date ( approx 30000 ). The Stock Id of all the records are unique. Every day I get the Stock ID numbers only in excel format from different branches. Every day I have to match the ID numbers received and delete its data in the Stock sheet ( to get an idea I have shown this in sheet3 ).

Is there is any code where I copy paste the ID numbers from the varoius excel sheets into my excel file in the BranchID sheet and the data gets deleted. i.e as I paste the data the record gets deleted but not the Stock ID number. Also the next day when I get new ID numbers and I delete the old ID numbers from the BranchID sheet the data should not re-appear in the Stock sheet.

Is it possible to have a marco that will look at the data in a cell/multiple cells and search a network drive for a folder named with the same data in a cell? For example, I used a marco to create a folder from the contents in cell A2. Can a macro be reversed in that if I have a spreadsheet with a list of data in A2,A3, A4 and so on, can it check a network drive to see if a folder has been created with the same data?

Launching Macro Based On Selected Cell Value (first Two Characters?)

Sep 6, 2013

I have a macro to sort a very large list of materials by a variety of conditions.

The macro runs automatically when a cell on the master list spread sheet is selected and using If/ElseIf it sorts based on what cell they have selected.

If ActiveCell = "ALUMINIZED" Then
ActiveSheet.Range("$A$14:$K$1945").AutoFilter Field:=2
ActiveSheet.Range("$A$14:$K$1945").AutoFilter Field:=4
ActiveSheet.Range("$A$14:$K$1945").AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:= _"Aluminized"

Which is working perfectly. The problem I am having is that some of the cells are two lines so it looks like this:


I don't know how to get it to launch based on that cell content because of the line break in there. Can I make it launch based on the first two characters only?
