Jul 8, 2014

I've got a long list of company names, i'm trying to create a formula to see if they match but the problem is the names won't match exactly (e.g it would be Joe Bloggs Limited & Joe blogg's ltd). I've thought about it and think the best way to see if they match would be to take the first word from the first cell (in this case Joe) and then search for it in the next cell and return TRUE if it exists anywhere in the cell and FALSE if not.

## VBA: Search Function: Which Shows An Input Box Where You Can Enter A Word To Search For

Sep 9, 2003

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

Sep 5, 2006

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"
"A"
"word"
"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 -

=IF( FIND(CHAR(64+COLUMN(\$A\$1:\$Z1)),\$A\$2,1),TRUE,FALSE)

[CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER]

## Search Engine Of Non-exact Word Using Userform

Jul 4, 2012

I have a userform for the user to use a search engine on what he needs. The following code I have written it, but it is only good if he writes exact wording of the document name. How can I twist the code to make the search look for approximate words,

The search engine will try to look in for all the titles on "Result" worksheet and copy/past it to a new sheet called "search". so when the user types in the userform "specification" for instance, it will look all titles (Specifications, specification, spec, brown color spec) that has this word in the "Result" sheet and then it will copy/paste it in the Search Sheet.

Code:
Private Sub ok_1_Click()
Dim sht As Worksheet
Set sht = Worksheets("Result")
'if no name selected
If Trim(Me.Document_box.Value) = "" Then
MsgBox "Please write a document name."

## VBA - Search For Multiple Text Strings In Data Field And If Matched Return One Word

May 7, 2014

I have hundreds of records of customer info and I am trying to categorize the job titles so that I can conduct some analysis with a pivot table. My problem is that there is about 20 different ways and variations of "manager" so Instead of autofiltering for "mrg." "Manager" "marketing manager" ect. and then replacing the text manually and using the enter and fill process (to create some standardization to compare "manager" to "director" to "c-level" to "consultant", etc.) and repeating this process over and over again...

I would like to create a VBA that would search the column "job title" for multiple text strings at once and if the text string was true in the cell then the cell would be replaced by a new text string "Manager". I was thinking a series of if functions within one vba but I am not sure if this is possible.

## Using The =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH Function To Search Multiple Cells)

Aug 21, 2009

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.

## How To Ask Formula To Search For Multiple Values Within One Search

Mar 4, 2014

I need one formula to copy and paste the checkcard data changing it from this "CHECKCARD XXXXXX5623" to "CHECKCARD 5623", but I need one formula to look for multiple known checkcard numbers. I will have more then one typically in the bank download so I need to search and copy at least two known numbers as shown below.

I am providing the formula that I am using right now, "=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("5623",B3)),RIGHT(B3,41),"")" but it only works for one checkcard number? Also I don't really need to capture the DEBIT or CREDIT that will always be at the end, it would be redundant. If it's easier to write the formula including that data that is no problem. What I want to copy and move into an adjacent cell is in red.

Here is the source data:
Row 2 - SONIC DRIVE IN#1531 AUSTIN TXDEBIT FOR CHECKCARD XXXXXX5623 DEBIT
Row 3 - JASON'S DELI # 125 Q64 AUSTIN TXDEBIT FOR CHECKCARD XXXXXX9718 DEBIT
