Formula To Search For A Word In Specified Cells
I am trying to figure out a formula which will search the contents of 6 cells (o2, p2, q2,r2,s2,t2) for the word "sugar". If it is found in either of these cells, I would like the formula to result in "true" or "yes", if not, "false" or"no" would be the result.
Cells (o2, p2, q2,r2,s2,t2) contain text which can include the word "sugar" but will never contain only the word sugar.

VBA: Search Function: Which Shows An Input Box Where You Can Enter A Word To Search For
I'm from Bavaria, Germany. Right now, I am doing an internship for my studies. my problem: I need a search procedure which shows an Input Box where you can enter a word to search for. It should work like the original Excel search (Ctrl-F), but with a simpler design, like with my own Text "Enter your Query" and a Button "Submit Query" / "Quit search". Is there the possibility to Highlight the Search Target? The problem hereby is that this highlighting should not be permanent. That means the user sees the target for which he searched for, the cell highlighted in a different color, etc. But as soon as the user clicks onto another cell, etc., the highlighting vanishes. If there is no fitting match, there should be a MessageBox like "Sorry the Target xyz cannot be found"

Search A Cell For Uppercase Word Only
This is wrekcing my head as I'm sure it can be done with an Array formula and I cant seem to get it sorted -
Say I have 5 Rows of text starting in A2
"A quick word"
"A quick WORD"
I need an excel formula to say "False", "False", "False", "False", "TRUE".
All conditions to be met for TRUE are - Word must in uppercase, Uppercase Word must be longer than 1 character, Sentence (i.e. cell) can not contain a space. This is the path I've gone down, but almost certainly incorrect -
VLOOKUP - Search Only One Word From Long Text, Write
Attached is the mock excel spreadsheet. I want to read "sam" from the lookup column's long text "sam is good" and then write "4" in the next column. Similarly read "white" from the long text "white is tired" and write "1". And so on,,,,, For more criteria, see box highlighted in yellow,,,,I used VLOOKUP but what am able to make it work only when there is one word "sam" in the lookup column. It returns #NA when the text is "sam is good". It should write nothing if none of the criteria is met and should keep doing until the last cell in the lookup column.
Using The =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH Function To Search Multiple Cells)
I' having trouble using the =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH formula to search multiple cells.
I can get it to work to search one cell (as below):
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Same",G10)),"No Change",'Aug 09 Matrix'!F10)
(In this case the respone is No Change as Cell G10 contains "Same")
However cannot get it to work for several cells. I have pasted below and highlighted the function I would like it to perform:
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Same",G10:R10)),"No Change",'Aug 09 Matrix'!F10)
Essentially the other cells in that row (G10:R10) all contain "Same", however for some reason it is identifying this as FALSE and putting in the data from the 'Aug 09 Matrix' sheet.
Opening Word & Count Word Instances In A Word Document

Search Word For Text And Send Values Next To Text To Excel File
I am using Windows XP and Office 2003.
I am looking to automate a process where information is sent to someone in a text format and they in turn transfer that data to an excel file. It basically looks like this (but includes a lot more info):
Service Request #: 123456
Instrument Type: New Instrument
Lot/Serial #: 123456
SR Type: Product Complaint
Service Coverage: Maintenance Agreement
The info on the left (text preceding the colon) is always the same but the values following the colon can change. The excel file has all of the text before the colon and they just enter the information into the cells. I am looking to make it so that an Excel macro (or maybe a word/outlook macro) automatically scans the text document and sends this info to the exact same cells in excel every time.
The text file is actually a message from an Oracle database and I am not going to be able to make any changes to the way the data comes in.
Search CSV Files For Word & Make .xls Files Of Them
I have 22 CSV files. I want to search each of those files for a specific text string (ie: "profile" or "description"). When the macro finds the word in any one of the CSV files I want it to copy that complete csv worksheet and paste it into an excel xls file.
how I can go about doing this. Not also that while vlookup is possible, its very time consuming if i have to do this 50 times over and each time the csv files have different file names. that is why i want to search within a file (each file has its own unique identifying text string)

Added Up # Of Cells Containing A Specified Word
In cell A1 I would like to have a formula that indicates the number of times the word "Yellow Pages" appears in cells C10:C1000. The C column inidicates a referral source. So some of the cells will have "Yellow Pages" and some wont. In cell A1 I would like to have it tell me the total # of referrals from the lead source "Yellow Pages".
Grab First Word In Cells
I would like to automate this process that I'm doing currently through the "Text to Columns" function.
Basically I have various cells that contain many worlds such as:
FRESH LUNETTE SOLEIL REES 1'S
INFOKUS SOLEIL LECTURE LUNETTES 1'S
KENSIE LUNETTE SOLEIL ELEORA 1'S
KENSIE LUNETTE SOLEIL ELIZABETH 1'S
KENSIE LUNETTE SOLEIL JAMES 1'S
KENSIE LUNETTE SOLEIL VESPER 1'S
KIDS LUNETTE SOLEIL HOUSTEN 1'S
KIDS LUNETTE SOLEIL MINNIE 1'S
My goal is to separate the first world from the rest of the words in one cell.
Since all of the words are seperated by space, I use the the "Text to Columns" function and separate the words, so that I can get the first word into one column. The rest of the words have to be merged again through "Concatenate".
What I'm looking for is a VBA code or Excel function that can identify the first world (which vary in character lengths) and put it into one column.
Text Split For The Name Only In Cells Where Contains The Word Name
I would like to do a text split for the name only in cells where contains the word "Name". For example: Name A&A Enterprize
Text split function for it is =MID(A1,FIND(" ",A1)+1,255)
so it only recognizes A&A Enterprize.
How would I add an IF, Then function (If the any cell contains the word Name, apply the text split function, for cells don't have the word Name, just leave it blank) if i have to do this for a large data file so i dont have to copy this function for every cell that contains the word Name.

Formula To Enable A Letter To Provide A Word As Answer

Create Hyperlink From 2 Cells, Then Open Word
The purpose of this endeavour is to create a cell that when the user clicks
on it, it will open up a Word file that THAT particular cell represents.
Take the values from Column D (Tract Number), then add a ".doc" extension to
it, then put the UNC filepath (\serverdata
eports) in front of all of that
and put it in Column E. See me example below:
File path plus Tract Number plus Extension
eports 7-5-065-085 .doc
.... to generate something like this:
Use the value (only when the user clicks on the hyperlink) from the cell in
Column E and start up Word.
How To Return All Cells (in The Form Of An Array) Containing A Certain Word
I am drawing a total blank here, lets say I have a column of cells:
(they all have words in them). How can I return all cells (an array?) that contain a specific word?
That function is almost perfect, except that returns a number - I need this to return an array of all of those cells that contain the word. Because I have another function to run after that takes in cells and THEN counts how many are a certain color (this one already works) - so it obviously cannot take in a number, it needs a list of cells
So it should return:
But I'm not sure in what format
Find Word In Range Cells Containing Other Strings
I am having a hard time creating a code that would search the exact string in a cell. See sample scenario below.
1. I have a string "hello" to be searched.
2. I will search the whole string in each cell in a previously declared range.
3. If in a cell i found "kdhlsk hellodsiewjls", although "hello" string is there,
the code should still return 0.
4. But if in a cell, i found "kjdsfel ljsdlkue hello luoeww", then the code should return 1.
I have already created a code, but it will always return 1 in step#3.
SUM Cells With Particular Word In Left Cell.
In my column B, I have different words like Balance, Notes, Expense, etc. Is there anyway I can look into column B, and if I get the word Expense, then take the number directly to the right of it (from column C) and SUM it? Not sure if it matters, but let's say I want to put it in cell C2. I figure this will allow me to do this like insert, delete rows in the future, but my equation in cell C2 will still add up what I need.
Export Cell Contents To Word Fields In A Protected Word Document
Is it possible to export Excel cell contents to Word fields in a protected Word document? For example...
What code would be needed to tell Excel to open up, copy and export the contents of A2 in the active sheet of a workbook to "Field 2" in a Word document named "Report 01" and then put the contents of B2 to "Field 2" etc?
Do both applications have to be opened up at the same time or is Excel able to open up Word on its own? Will the macro be able to....
1. Automatically open up the correct Word document?
2. Look ONLY in a certain folder for the "Report 01" Word document?
Bring up a "selection" box that allows you to select the document you wish Excel to export it's data to?
3. Close and save the Word Document without any user intervention?
Find All Instances Of Word And List Adjacent Cells
I have a sheet where in one column, the word "high" will be repeated.

I have searched the forums but i can' t seem to find anything.
Data Validation :: Cells Should Contain Specific Word On Input
I'm trying to make the included spreadsheet as idiot proof as possible as a lot is a stake. I have most functionality working well; however, not I would like to add a little more data validation that does not exist in the normal cell validation rule set.
I need all the input cells to validate that the cell contains the word "BOX" upon entry, otherwise throw a warning. This is because the data entry will be done by barcode and there are a couple barcode labels on each box. The one I want will include the word "BOX" somewhere in the code sequence.
Since a previous function in the Code locks the cell, they wont be able to fix the error. but it will alert them so they can make sure to scan in the proper barcode and not miss the box. Also, once I get something that works in the code, where would I put it? In the same code box as the previous script, underneath it, or somewhere else? So, bottom line, I need a script that check the cell for Text of "Box" otherwise throw a message box.
Preserve Cells Word Formatting Concatenating Text
I have a cell with some text in it that has formatting applied (bold in this case). I want to append some text on the end using VBA, but preserve the existing font formatting information. So say I have "one bold one" in my cell, I'm executing the following: ActiveCell.Value = ActiveCell.Value & "two"
But this wipes out the bold information. Is there any way of preserving the bold that's already in the cell. Either perhaps by copying the Characters object and reapplying it, or by some other method?
Color Row Where Cells In Column Contains Specific Word
I have a spreadsheet with 12 coloums. In the last coloum are the ords "yes", "no", or is empty (null?). I need to find a way to have each row that contains the word "no" or is empty to be highlighted in red font and bold type. When the word "yes" is typed then the font is black and the type in normal. This allows me to see at a glance what orders have not been picked up or have problems.
Replace Word In MS Word With Varable From MS Excel
I am in the middle of automating a process here at work, the program takes a word, "pencil" for example, from excel. It will then open up a word document with content already in it (premade template). The program will then find all instances of a string, "placepencilhere" for example, and will replace that instance with the string from excel.
Basically I want to be able to take a variable that has a stored string value from excel and use it to replace another variable in a word document.
I tried recording a replace (ctrl+f, replace tab) macro, copying the code, and inserting it into the excel vba code.. but I get a error message. Here is what I have:
If Word Is Contained Within A Cell, Ouput That Word In Another
I have a bunch of cells in column b that have products.
Dell 24" lcd
vaio sony laptop
8.0 mpxl kodak camera
Basically in Column A I want a formula that'll say.
If the word "dell" is somewhere in cell b1, then put the word "Dell" in cell a1.
If the word "sony" is somewhere in cell b1, then put the word "sony" in cell a1.
And then so on and so forth down through column A. The brand names are potentially endless, so is there a easy way to on like a seperate sheet make a list of brand names and have it pull from there?
Originally I made a if function that said if the brand name was contained in the cell then output the brand name, but that caps at 7 for the amount of brands i can use....
