# Finding Values By Using Text In Other Cell

Jul 3, 2014

I am trying to create a cell that show the value of all specified rows with specific name.

For example:

Apples \$2 \$5 \$10
Oranges \$5 \$10 \$50
Apples \$5 \$ 6 \$ 60

(each of these will be in their own cells, 3 rows and 4 columns)

How do I create a cell that will sum the total value of all the Apples by using Apples as the variable?

## Finding Corresponding Values In Table And Division With Cells Containing Text?

Sep 6, 2013

1) I am trying to find a matching value in a table. I have a 5*252 table that starts in B2. So the table goes from B2 to F253. I am trying to match a value in column D (column 3 in the table and column 4 in the spreadsheet) with a value in Column F (column 5 in the table and column 6 in the spreadsheet). The original value is in cell 222 in the table and cell 224 in the spreadsheet.

I tried the LOOKUP, VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP functions, but they return nothing but N/A. I use a reference cell or just the value for the lookup value but it does not work. I do not know if I am using the wrong formulas or what, but I have tried various permutations. (question 3 in excel workbook )

2) I am trying to calculate the standard deviation of a column D (contains both numbers and text) divided by column B (first in table). Excel does not appear to have a custom division formula. It has a remainder and a quotient formula which does not apply here. The problem is that the STDEV function does not allow for a division sign (/) in the formula. the STDEV function does ignore texts.

Is there a way for me to divide a cell ( containing both letters and numbers) by another cell just containing numbers and then taking the standard deviation of those values all in one formula?

## 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 Cell Given X And Y Values

Jul 13, 2006

I have a worksheet where column A is a list of numbers and Row 1 is a different list of numbers

Is there a way to activate a cell given the column A value and Row 1 value? (so I can then insert a value)

## Finding Text In A Cell

Sep 7, 2009

I am trying to extract text from one cell into another, for example if in cell A2 I have text " {Operating System Issue} ~Word~ I got a new PC i used to have avaya…" in cell b2 i want {Operating System Issue} and in Cell c2 I want ~Word~.

This is what i am doing, in Cell B2 in putting formulla as =MID(\$A2,FIND("{",\$A2,1),FIND("}",\$A2,1)) and in cell C2 i am putting formulla as =MID(\$A2,FIND("~",\$A2,1),FIND("~",\$A2,1)). However in cell C2 thsi si what I am getting

~Word~ I got a new PC i used

i dont want anything after "~" sign. What i need is only the text that is in betwwen "~" sign.

## Search Cell Not Finding Values?

Dec 20, 2012

Code:
Sub DeleteCells()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim cell As Range, search_cell As Range
Dim i As Long

[Code]...

A few issues with the above code: I have manually checked that there is a sheet with a value in M12 that is found in the H column range, but it doesn't change the value to zero. (this was confirmed with an =IF(M12 = H101,1,0) returning a 1 value.

Secondly, it takes a long time to process not a lot of data. (about 2 minutes to get through 3 sheets of 180 actual rows of data, (rest blank). Is there any way I can speed it up? I will eventually be cranking it up to 30 sheets of data and up to 360 rows. (The 500 was thrown in earlier to make sure it covered everything).

finally, it also lines every cell value in I(end of data):I501with a zero, when there are blanks in other cells, can i get it to not put a zero in,

## Finding Empty Cell And Using That Row For All Other Values

May 19, 2014

I am trying to write a macro that looks for the first empty cell in column G, Then once that cell if found, assigns that row to be the row that other data is copied and pasted to. My code currently just finds the first empty cell in each column and copies and pastes the data and am not sure how to get it to what i need it to do.

Code:
Sub seconddatatransfer()
Dim wb1 As Workbook, wb2 As Workbook, sh1 As Worksheet, sh2 As Worksheet
Set wb1 = Workbooks("filestransfer.xlsm") 'Edit file extension
Set wb2 = Workbooks("KBCG.xlsm") 'Edit file extension
Set sh1 = wb1.ActiveSheet
Set sh2 = wb2.Sheets("Tracking Sheet")
sh2.Cells(Rows.Count, 2).End(xlUp)(2).Value = sh1.Range("B6").Value 'left

## Finding 2 Out Of 3 Consecutive Equal Cell Values?

Sep 10, 2012

Say I have Column A populated with Employee Names, and Column B populated with "Pass" or "Fail" (which indicates a passed or failed customer service call monitoring).

For each employee, I want to be able to look at all of their overall scores (usually between 3 and 10 evaluations per month) and easily highlight people who have failed 2 out of 3 consecutive evaluations.

I want to integrate this feature in to a weekly quality report.

## 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.

## Finding Min Cell Values Excluding Zero In Alternate Columns

Nov 4, 2005

I have an array that is 1 row high by 16 columns wide.

Each cell may contain a positive value, or a zero.

I need a formula to find the "Minimum value that is greater than zero" in
columns 1,3,5,7,9,11,13 and 15.

=MIN(A1,C1,E1,G1,I1,K1,M1,O1) will always return the zero value while I
need the minimum value that is greater than zero.

If I use nested IF functions to exclude zeroes I run foul of the max of 7
allowed.

## Finding Sum Of Cells That Have Specific Values In Adjacent Cell?

Apr 4, 2013

I have a list of data:

2
140

1
660

10
140

0.92
660

2
130

0.18
660

4
510

0.44
820

4
510

I want to have a formula that finds the sum of the values in Col 1 (Qty) for the rows that equal, eg: 140, in Col 2 (Product) So that I can have a list of Products of the Qty that relates to each product. (there are products in increments of 10 from 10 to 920, that is, 92 products)

## 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!

## 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.

## Finding Text On Particular URL Before Cycle Completed And Loop To Next Cell

Nov 9, 2011

I need to run this on all cells in column a not just A2...:

Dim ie As Object
Set ie = CreateObject("internetexplorer.application")
Dim srchtrm As String
srchtrm = Range("A2").Value
ie.Visible = True
ie.Navigate "http://myurl.com=" & srchtrm

I also need to add to this code an option for finding text on the particular URL before the cycle is completed and looped to the next cell.

## Finding Cells With Certain Values And Adding Fill Colour To The Cell

Feb 1, 2007

i have an excel file which contains data, I want to be able to search this file and to fill the cell and its next 3 cells to the right with a certain colour. Is this possible as I have wrote some vba to do this but, Im only able to search and not fill the cells with the correct colour.

## 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

## Text To Row Instead Of Text To Column Using Comma Separated Values And Associate Cell To The Left

May 16, 2013

Is there a macro that will allow me to create text to row from a comma separated cell, but also associate the cell to its left automatically?

The table below exemplifies what I need. The top of the spreadsheet is how my data is currently. The portion after the break is how I would like it to be.

I have over 600 rows that needs this done.

1,2,3,4
B

## Finding All Alike Values And Summing Up Corresponding Column Values

Jan 31, 2012

Here's an example of what I need..

I want to

A B
2.5 corn
4 corn
7 green
2 green

I'd like a macro to find all corns, add up the column A for each corn and place the sum beside the last corn in column C

Then do the same with green, etc.

## Summing Values After Finding Max Consecutive Values

May 11, 2009

I have 10 columns (A-J). Column B is the Date & Column C is the Time, I have the data sorted 1st by date then by time. The 5th Column, E, is Size. The 10th column, J, is "Position."

This 10th column, J, is in binary format. A 1 equals a Position & a 0 equals no Position.

1) I need to find the Max Sum of the Size in which the Max consecutive set of 1s has occurred.

2) I need to also do this on a day by day basis, using the Date in Column B, without having to manually go through & modify all the formulas to reference the date.

I have a Sumif formula for the 2nd but it won't copy down to update the formula for each unique date. I have to manually change the date values & I have ~957 unique dates to do; so it would be a rather painstaking process if only done manually. Moreover, it doesn't count the Max Sum of all consecutive 1s in Column J...

The length of the non unique columns (all columns w/o unselecting the duplicate entries) is 19,068.

If you can be of help, I'd be very thankful...my brain is overloaded w/googling & using trial & error.

## Finding Specific Text Within String Of Text?

May 12, 2014

I have a report that in column BX has a large string of text (html information). Within this text there is a phrase called "| Hear = Education Website |" The phrase Education Website can be a variety of things though (Up to 9 choices). What is a formula I could use to just pull out the text after "Hear =" but before |""?

## How Do I Sum Values When Text Is Also In Cell ?

Feb 17, 2009

Cells have both text and values in and I need a formula to sum up only the values.

An example is:

joe 22
jim 33
sue 44

...where the formula needs to produce the answer 99.

## Finding Row - Getting Max Of That Row And Copying Some Values

Apr 29, 2014

Basically what I need is to find a row (I'm doing it by matching the row title that is 'BALANCE'), then I need to find the max value in this row (the problem I'm having is that the row number is not constant), copy that value in another cell and copy the name, that is located in the same column, next to the previous copied value.

## Finding Multiple Values At Once?

May 27, 2014

Actually i have to two sheets. In (1st file) I have the data of customers. And in (2nd file) I get the approved sales. So i have to find the numbers.

In my sales sheet, there is data of customers like name, address, phone number etc.

In my sales report sheet, i got multiple numbers in a notepad file which are rejected sales.

So basically, i have to copy every number one by one, and then have to find it in my excel sheet with CTRL+F and then i change the color of that cell which is rejected.

I want magic by which i simply add all the rejected numbers in one column of my file, and then do Abra Cadabra by which all the numbers which are rejected get in red colour automatically in the column in which there are all the numbers (approved as well as rejected).

## Finding Values With Two Parameters

Feb 5, 2009

I have a spreadsheet in which one column I'm trying to find a value in another table that has 3 columns (A, B, C). I need to find all the values in A, that fulfill the parameters of less than 1.5 in B, and great than 5% in C.

They all need to be listed in column H while skipping the records that do not meet this criteria.

## Finding Values Within Two Ranges

Feb 18, 2013

I have people who wrote down that they attended a location on a certain date at a certain time, and I have their start and end time.

So for example my person data has something like this:

Arrive: 1/1/12 7:00 AM,
Leave: 1/1/12 10:00 AM

Arrive: 1/1/12 3:00 PM
Leave: 1/1/12 4:00 PM

Arrive: 1/4/12 8:00 PM
Leave: 1/4/12 10:15 PM

I also have those fields formatted as text and as decimals so I can work with whatever I need.

The next portion is a list of events that occur at these same locations. Here are some examples.

Event 1
Start: 1/1/12 8:15 AM
End: 1/1/12 12:15 PM

Event 2
Start: 1/4/12 3:00 PM
End 1/4/12 8:30 PM

What I need to find out is if the person was present at the location during any of the events.

A person may write down more than one visit to the location in a day. The events only happen once per day. I'm sure there's a pretty manual way to do this, however the list of people and events spans an entire year and it will be too time consuming to do it that way.

## Finding The Last 10 Values In A Column?

Apr 29, 2013

I have a graph which is reading from a table. This graph is reading flows from a flow meter, but after reading data for over an hour the graph gets really squished. I'm looking at creating another graph with just the last 50~ values from one column. Is there a way I can create another table that only reads the last 50 values from one column?

## Finding Duplicate Values Using VBA?

Aug 19, 2013

I have multiple columns / rows of data, some of which are duplicates.

Column S is a concat of columns A:R where this data is stored, and is sorted alphabetically.

I'm looking for a way using VBA to find duplicate concat rows by cycling through this list that is already sorted. I'm interested in moving down this list, 1 by 1, and if current cell = cell above, delete the data in columns A:P of that row, then delete the cell data in column R of the cell above the current cell.

So for example, if I have sorted data in S8:S14, and S9 = S8, then I would like to delete A9:P9, then delete the data in R8.

## Finding Min And Max Values From Array

May 9, 2014

I have been trying to set up a macro to find the Minimum and Maximum values from an array of temperatures for painting... so far, partially successful.

The problems I am having are that the values have 1 decimal place and can be anywhere between 22.7 to -1.4. When they come they are put on the spreadsheet, the MinTemp can be 10.0 and MaxTemp 9.9, totally reversed.

Dim Info(2000, 2) As String
Dim MonthValue(31, 9) As Variant
Dim Working1 As Date
Dim I As Integer
Dim J As Integer
Dim Tot As Integer

## Finding A Return Values

May 22, 2008

Here is a little formula I working on:
=IF(MID(A1, LEN(A1),1)="i", "x", "")

As it is, it would return an X if the last value of a string is "i"
What I want to really do is check if the last value is a " qoute but it seems you can't put """ or you get an error -- example: =IF(MID(A1, LEN(A1),1)=""", "x", "")

## Finding Values In Array

Mar 27, 2007

I'd like to know if exist a procedure/ function to find a argument in an array and return the index/address of the argument at the array.

For example, I have a array contaning a list of products. i'd to create a function that finds the index of a particular/list of products, feeded as arguments, and returns the indexes locations.
