Macro That Deletes Row Before And After Certain Phrase

Nov 3, 2008

I need a macro that searches my spreadsheet for a keyword in Column B. If it finds the keywords (or an array of keywords would be even better), it then deletes the entire row above the keyword, the row with the keyword, and the row below the keyword.

So for example,

(Column B)
1 - Row Above
2 - Keyword Row
3 - Row Below

If the macro finds the text in column 2, it would delete 1, 2 and 3.

I need to have a second macro that performs a very similar function.
it copies the 3 rows (similar to the example below) to a different sheet based on the keyword.

Phrase Search Macro

Jan 26, 2014

I would like to write a macro which checks if phrase from column B (lets say 13845) can be found in column A cells.

For example DDH113845G389.

I think that it should be some kind of loop but I'm afraid I can't handle it.

Find Phrase And Look Up Corresponding Cell Value

Mar 24, 2009

I have three columns.
Column 1: A list of items with a very long text description in each cell
Column 2: The Key phrase found within the long description in the cells of Column 1.
(The key phrase is different for each cell).
Column 3: Custom shortened description in text format.
Column 4: Formula to return the Custom shortened description, equivalent to the item in Column 1

How do I create a formula in Column 4 so that Excel searches for the Key phrase found within the string of Column 1 and returns the custom description in Column 4?

Identifying Phrase In A Text List

May 14, 2014

I have a cell with a long list of phrases all separated by commas.

So it would appear, chicken, beef, steak, soup, fish

I want to create a rule in a cell to identify if one of those phrases comes up - so if chicken comes up then a 1 would appear.

To make it interesting is it possible to grab two words from the cell, so grab the words chicken and beef from a mass of words in one cell and bring it across.

I have these cells which contain huge amount of text and preferences and I am looking to identify these entities on if they contain these words.

Multi Keyword Phrase Finding Macro

Jun 8, 2007

I have a large keyword list in a sheet called "AllKWs" In ColA from A3 downwards).

What I'd like to be able to do is this, which I'm sure will be complicated, but I will explain.

Say keyword phrase sheet has 25,000 rows of data (could be more/could be less).
I click an assigned macro button.
A pop up box appears.
I type in a word or words I'd like some info on, so for example I type in a word or words like "car rent"

It then returns for me on a new sheet called "Multi Keywords" a lot of data on this sheet, which would hopefully be as follows:

All Row 1 will contain Column headings
All row 2 will contain Total Counts (I'll explain in a minute this row)

So, all data to be returned from Row 3 downwards.
OK, as to the data to be returned.
All returned data In all Columns to show data in descending order by No of occurrances/appearances

Col A (From A 3 downwards) = The actual number of 2 word appearances (In this example that contain the words "car rent"

In Col B = All 2 word Phrases Containing ("In this example "Car Rent")
(As a note, In this example, ColA (CellA3) could only show the number"1" and ColB (B3)could only show the phrase "Car Rent") once. (As there isn't no other possible combination).

In Col C =The actual number of 3 word appearances listed in descending order That
contain the word "Car rent"

In Col D =All 3 word Phrases Containing "Car Rent"

In Col E =The actual number of 4 word appearances containing "Car Rent" listed in descending order

In Col F =All 4 word Phrases Containing "Car Rent"

In Col G =The actual number of 5 word appearances listed in descending order

Actually if anyone can crack this I really do take my hat of to them.
OK,A few more points,

Cells B2,D2,F2,H2,J2,L2,N2,P2,R2, All contain the word "Total:" and if the macro can fill in the number as appropriate.

So for example Cell L2 (For 7 word phrases) would say something like "Total:42" (If in Col L From L3 downwards the macro found 42 7 word phrases that contained the words "Car rent"

Ok, Cells A2,C2,E2,G2,I2,K2,M2,O2,Q2 All these cells will contain the word "Total". So these cells would list the combined total number of occurrances of all the phrases.
So for example cell K2 might say "Occur:324" as the total number of occurances of 7 word phrases that had the words "Car rent"in.

OK. as an example, I will post a code that Jindon wrote for me sometime ago. I'm posting this now, as it is very similar in what I would like this macro to be able to do, and might help as I'm sure this 1 will be complicated. This 1 looks for a phrase, returns by No of occurrances etc, but for all the combinations (Word lengths) within the Keyword phrase list, rather than what I'm asking for now, which splits them into Number of words columns.

Here it is anyway:

Sub NicheKeywordFinder()
Dim a, dic As Object, X, myTxt As String, b(), c(), n As Long, i As Long, e, s, myTotal As Long
myTxt = InputBox("HuaHinCarRental - Niche Keyword Finder") 'change to suit
If Len(myTxt) = 0 Then Exit Sub
Set dic = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
dic.CompareMode = vbTextCompare
ReDim b(1 To Rows.Count, 1 To 1): ReDim c(1 To Rows.Count, 1 To 3)
With Sheets("All KWs") 'change to suit
a = .Range("a1", .Range("a" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)).Value
End With

Insert Line Feed At Intervals In A Phrase

Aug 24, 2007

Each cell in Range("A1:A2000") contains a remark, each phrase or remark is
Between 5 & 70 characters all written without line feeds (carriage return,i mean Alt Enter) Just spaces between words. What I would like to do in every cell is to force a line feed (Alt Enter) every 10 characters, and if the 10th character happens to be in the middle of a word I want the line feed to be inserted at the end of this word. Note that the phrases are not necessarily multiples of 10.

Find Phrase In One Column And Apply Formula To Different Columns Same Row?

Aug 27, 2013

I am trying to come up with a macro that will find rows that contain the words �as % of Revenue� and then calculate and apply the appropriate formula to the actual and budget columns. I have attached a sample of what the source data look like.

The formula divides the category�s total expense by the revenue in row 4. For a complete macro, I would want to also subtract the budget result from the actual result and put its result in the �better (worse)� column. I need to use this on 12 or so different workbooks which is why I�m wanting a macro.

Here is my attempt to accomplish this task; however, I quickly realized it is woefully inadequate because I neither understand how to apply it to the different columns or how to find the next instance of �as % of revenue�).

Sub Macro1()
' Macro1 Macro
Cells.Find(What:="as % of Revenue").Activate
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=R[-1]C/R10C"
End Sub

Export Cell Contents To Word Fields In A Protected Word Document

Jul 6, 2009

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?
