* 5 Extravagant Mak (nz) (100) Need the number plus a dot then space then the name, then minus everything after the name, so this would now read 5. Extravagant Mak thats 5dot space Extravagant Mak
11 Frisbee (100) This one would become 11. Frisbee thats 11dot space Frisbee
I have come up with this to Trim all of the data from rows 2:30 removing any trailing spaces after the last word in each cell. The macro takes a couple of minutes to run have I got something wrong that is making it run slowly or does the Trim process just take longer?
Sub TRIM_RANGE() Dim myRange As Range Dim myRow As Range Sheets("CAMPAIGNS_2007").Select Set myRange = Range("2:30") If myRange Is Nothing Then Exit Sub Application. ScreenUpdating = False myRange.Replace What:=Chr(160), Replacement:=Chr(32), _ LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False For Each myRow In myRange.Columns If Application. CountA(myRow) > 0 Then myRow.TextToColumns Destination:=myRow(1), _ DataType:=xlFixedWidth, FieldInfo:=Array(0, 1) End If Next myRow Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
I am trying to make a simple quiz on a spreadsheet which will provide the score immediately the player has finished. Basically a row is as follows:
C5= Question; D5 = player's input answer, E5 = check answer and give score
For example: in C5 "What colour is a banana?" The player inputs the answer to D5: yellow in E5, the answer is tested by a formula and score is given. For this I have a formula IF(D5="yellow",1,0) hence E5 returns either 1 or 0.
Now my problem: If the player inputs one or more spaces, I need to use the TRIM function as well otherwise the answer will be incorrect. How can I work the TRIM with the IF formula?
A thought has just occurred to me that I might have to firstly Copy and TRIM the answer in to E5 and then have the IF condition in F5, but that needs another column and seems a longer way around.
I'm in need of a formula that would trim a name within a cell to look like this:
name in cell = Doe, John Result looking for = DoeJoh
name in cell = Smith, Robert Result looking for = SmiRob
The formula would take the first 3 letters of last name and combine them with the first 3 letters of the last name. There is a space after the , and the name would always be consistent with the exampel above.
Also what about a formula that would take a name like Doe, John and transpose it to John Doe.
I have been using the following formula's to trim some information that's separated by a colon, such as Pioneer Clinic:Dave McAfee...so that I have a column with Pioneer Clinic and a column with Dave McAfee:
I'm coping and pasting data (html) into a worksheet. When I try to format some of the columns as accounting$, number, ect. They won't format. It looks as if there are spaces before and after the data. So I tried the trim and clean function but it doesn't work, so I guess the blank "spaces" are not really spaces.
It gets better...
When I do the same exact copy and paste (as html) on another persons computer, they are able to format just fine, and the "spaces" are removed automatically.
Why is this working on one computer but not the other? Is it a setting that my computer has enabled or disabled? If so, what is it?
I've posted a document in which I'm trying to calculate the weekly headcount for employees using their timecard entries.There are many entries per week for each employee, but I want to count them only once per week rather than each time they make a timecard entry. I need to tweak it to deal with one condition that it currently doesn't handle.The person who provided has said he doesn't check in with the forum very often, so I'm putting this out there to a wider audience.
Whenever the value of column W = "UTO" (unpaid time off) I want the formula to ignore that entry (count it as 0 rather than 1) and continue on to the next entry. The way I have the formula now, it counts any "UTO" entries as 0, but then it does not count the subsequent non-UTO entry as 1. I'm not expert enough to fully understand the formula that was provided
I have added embedded the formula in an IF statement to ignore the "UTO" entries.
=IF([@[Util?]]="UTO",0,--(COUNTIFS(B$2:B945,B945,U$2:U945,U945)=1)) ("Util?" is the header for column W)
I was using the formula below which was working fine for copying across 20 columns and down however many rows, but now the requirements have changed to 90 columns. I have tested this out with the 90 columns but the Indirect function is bogging down the spreadsheet with the constant recalculating.
I have a system that generates 4 databases with different types of statistical data. Observed defects, Calculated Defect, Capability and Number of points. I have set up a system for telling me what ranges each section is and I am manually changing the ranges to get my expected results.
Is there a formula that I can use that could adjust my ranges, within my formulas?
I have a spreadsheet at work . I am tracking the quality target for the department and I need to create a formula that adjust accordingly to the target set for month end which is 90%.
I have build in the foreacasted numbers for the whole month but I need the formula to indicate the minimum error points needed to achieve the target of 90% for month end when I replace the forecasted numbers on a daily basis with actual numbers.
I have attached the spreadsheet which will be clearer.
Suppose I have a list (mine is several thousand lines) with city names. In this list some has manually input some names with double spaces between multiple word names -- Example (using dashes to represent spaces in this case):
I know about the function TRIM, but that only works at the start or end, I need something simple to trim the extra space between two words.
My V-lookups are not working. I have data with extra spaces before or after the word. The table I am looking up does not have extra spaces. I'm trying to to a TRIM(data with spaces) and then copy and paste the values so that the spaces go away and the TRIM is not taking my spaces out.
I'm using a template that has formulas using a $ sign to attempt to stop the ranges they refer to changing. The problem is, when I use the template (which involes Access importing some data and adding columns to the sheet the formula refers to in the process) the rows referred to in the formula change in line with the number of rows of data that have been imported. Only the row numbers change not the column headings. So for example:
This formula I want to apply it in another workbook. It split in different columns the content of a cell.
The formula is below:
In cell A2 I have the following data: |516582-001-99|414816-001-99|414816-003-99|516582-001-99|
If I apply the formula above in cells B2 to E2 it returns a blank cells. But if I delete the first "|" sign in the left side manually the formula works perfectly by splitting the cell into columns from B2 to E2. The issue here is that I have more than 300,000 records. Just imagine the amount of time invested in just deleting the first "|" at the left side.
I need a variation of the formula above that in first place delete the first "|" at the left side and after that continue with the proper work of the formula.
The below formula is in Col F6, how do i get this formula to adjust to data range without manually filling down, my data changes everyday therefore i need the formula to auto fill according to data range.
Is there a way to make a chart adjust automatically when you add to the source data? I'm trying to use a named range in order to power a chart (something like chart_data=offset(a1,,, counta(a:a),counta(1:1)); the range is working fine). When I put "chart_data" into the source field for the chart, it seems to work fine; it picks up the right range... But when I later add more data, the chart source data field seems to have converted my named range into a hard-coded range, absolute range. So the dynamical named range updates, but the chart doesn't and I don't see the new data. Am I doing something wrong that I need to tweak? Does what I'm trying to do just not work? Is there another way to make the chart pick up the new data without adjusting the range?
I have the following macro that imports data from several input files and rearranges it in a master file.I want to change it so that I can use it in each of the input files. Therefore, it should look in the input file for Spreadsheet "XYZ" and rearrange it in Spreadsheet "Data".
I want to create a macro that will allow me to highlight a column and have the macro Trim every cell with text in the column, preferably putting the results over the original text. The column in question has text in every cell, until the column ends.
(That is, there are no numbers and no blanks until the data ends altogether.) I do not want to remove internal spaces in the text, just the leading and trailing ones.
I am sure this is fairly simple, but I'm not sure how to get it to look at every cell and then terminate properly.
