Hard Sorting Process / Dates And Supplier Code Mixed In Same Column?

Jan 22, 2013

I have an auto generated report that is exported into .csv, my dilemma is that it sorts both the account code and the date in the same column, like this:

9884A B Gerrish Ltd œ 577.270577.270

so "9884" and "30/09/2012" are in the same column.

Some how i need to turn this information to say the below three invoices are for account 9884, into more of a usuable data like:

9884 A B Gerrish Ltd 30/09/2012 etc etc.

Obviously through out the document this repeats for each account, upto some 1000 accounts.

Sorting Mixed Text And Numbers?

Jun 17, 2014

A column holds numbers and numbers with suffixes. The conventional sort function pushes the text values to the bottom. I need them sorted along with the numbers.

Microsoft's KB says to add a column formatted as text and then to RETYPE ALL OF THE VALUES! Splendid. But my file has hundreds of records. Re-typing all of them would be a major pain. On the other hand, if I had started typing while trying to find a way to sort the darn thing I might be done by now.

Here's what I know so far: If we create a column, format it as text and then populate with 1, 2, 3, 4, 1a, 2a, 3a, 4a, etc. it will sort exactly correct (1, 1a, 2, 2a...) after selecting the "sort numbers and numbers stored as text separately" when the Sort Warning appears. If you try to create the sample I typed here, you need to be careful that the area is formatted as text BEFORE entering the text. You apparently cannot change the format of an existing column of data to Text or if you do it does not have the desired effect when sorting. It might be useful to know if this can be done too. MS suggests not.

Sorting Mixed Content - Numbers And Words

Mar 28, 2014

I have a worksheet with a row of mixed cells near the top. By "mixed", I mean some cells have only numeric data (numeric-cells) and some have only words (word-cells).

GOAL: I want to sort the columns to the following order:

First all the columns with only numeric-cells in the mixed row, with those columns sorted in DESCENDING numeric order of the numeric-cells in the mixed row; followed by the columns with only word-cells in the mixed row sorted by ASCENDING alphabetic order.

So far all I have been able to accomplish is:

First all the columns with only numeric-cells in the mixed row, with those columns sorted in ASCENDING numeric order of the numeric-cells in the mixed row; followed by the columns with only word-cells in the mixed row sorted by ASCENDING alphabetic order. This was accomplished by a simple sort using ASCENDING order on the mixed row.


First all the columns with only word-cells in the mixed row, with those columns sorted in DESCENDING alphabetic order of the word-cells in the mixed row; followed by the columns with only numeric-cells in the mixed row sorted by DESCENDING numeric order. This was accomplished by a simple sort using DESCENDING order on the mixed row.

This may sound as confusing to you as it does to me, so I have attached an example file showing hypothetical Input Data and the Desired Result.

I did the example file in multiple steps, but that's too painful in the general case where calculations determine what is in which cell in the mixed row. All data are calculated, even the word-cell data AND so dependent on other data, and the columns in the mixed row that are word-cells and those that are numeric cells don't remain the same.

Eventually I'd like to do this with a macro, so if VBA has some power to do this that EXCEL commands don't, then that's fine.

I could probably live with the final result as numeric-cell columns sorted in DESCENDING order followed by word-cell columns sorted in DESCENDING order, but I haven't even been able to accomplish that AND it's not quite the goal.

Sorting Dates Column And Calculating MTD, YTD

Nov 4, 2009

So Column 1 I've got dates, need to sort through that and calculate Year-to-date and Month-to-Date values. These are both Sums of the cells....
YTD = Sum of all cells with most recent yr, in this case 2007
MTD = Sum of all cells in Column B for most recent month, Feb2007 here.

I've listed the desired solution for YTD and MTD on the sheet as well. (I'm guessing the solution will have something to do with SUMPRODUCT?)

Sorting Column With Dates Does Not Sort

Jun 1, 2007

In the attached workbook, sorting the dates in column M results in absolutely nothing happening. The dates are formatted as dates (dd/mm/yyyy). The dates in column M are arrived at by adding a number of days (formatted as Number) to another date, the value of which was determined by an array formula. When I retype the actual date into another column and sort that, I get it sorted. Why does the other sort not work? BTW - I actually need to sort column M with column N.

Hard Code Fill Color Of A Cell?

How to "hard code" a cell's fill color? I want to assign a cell's fill color to yellow. While setting the fill color is easily done, my problem is that as soon as I paste data into that cell, it looses its fill color. Is there a way to tell the cell to never change the fill color?

Structuring Code To Efficiently Process Data

Aug 23, 2009

I have a two workbooks, one which is a daily schedule and the other is a yearly summary. The worksheet in the yearly summary uses a date in the first column and the daily sheets each have a date on them. I've isolated my data in the daily schedule and I've retrieved the date in its numerical equivilant. I have data that is 6 cells wide by "x" amount deep on any given day. Essentially, I schedule different things to be made and each row has that designation, process, dimensions, quantity, etc.

I want to test the contents of the first cell in the array, copy the pertinent data, switch to the proper worksheet, and paste it into the line where it goes. I believe I need to check a few cells to narrow down exactly which group of cells on which sheet they would be copied to.

I am not trained at all as far as programming goes, but I've been practicing for a few years now. What I am just going to start doing is testing the cells in the rows in the array of data and trying to divide it out that way. This just seems like the long way around.

VBA Code To Import Text Files & Process Imported Data

Jul 26, 2009

I have two macros one of which imports the data and the other processes the data. These macros were created at different times and need to be joined into a single macro that will combine their operations with slight modification to the importing macro. Let me describe what each of the macros does:

PROCESS macro:
Cycles through the CONTROL CELL on the 1 tab using the VALUES TO TEST. For each value to test it copies the values form the output tabs and pastes them into the A+B tab. Then it removes the duplicate rows there.

Option Explicit
Sub PROCESS() 'This subroutine is called when clicking on the first button
Dim i As Long, j As Long, k As Long 'Those are the variables that will browse through the whole sheets
Dim l As Integer 'this will be used to browse through the values to test
Dim TheSearch(1 To 2) As Object 'This is an array of objects that will be used for the search
Dim TheRange As Range 'This will be used to flag the range of duplicates in the output

'Searching for the Text string 'VALUES To TEST' in the sheet "1" in order to know where the array of values to be tested start
Set TheSearch(1) = Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count + 10, ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Columns.Count)).Find(What:="VALUES TO TEST", LookIn:=xlValues, Lookat:=xlWhole)

Changing Hard Coded Column References To Variable References

Oct 22, 2009

I have a number of statements within the Sheet Event Code (Excel 2007). Three times lately I have added a column and had to go back into the code and find all of the references that needed changing to reflect the new column.

I have been working on this for a couple of days and even tried EE, but to no success.

I have read that Defined Names / Constants should be used as often as possible, but even trying that, the VBA code errors out or "hangs up". Even within Bill Jalen's book (VBA and Macros 2007), there is nothing that addresses this, especially using Intersect.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rng As Range

On Error GoTo mEnd
Set rng = Sheets("Log").[F14:F10000]
If Not Intersect(rng, Target) Is Nothing Then
If Target = "" Then
With Sheets("Log")

Sorting Dates In Different Formats?

Jul 5, 2013

I'm trying to put cemetery records in a simple, sortable table, names and dates. The problem is that for some entries I have a full date of birth, death, or burial (e.g. 5/12/1892) and for others only a year (e.g. 1892). Is it possible to sort these? All I can get is the just years in order then the full dates at the end. My data look sort of like this:

Smith John 1892 1/1/1940 2/2/1892
Johnson Sarah 3/12/1900 1880 3/10/1900

One thing I don't know is what number format to use (text, long date, short date....) Sometimes the date I type changes after I type it (like 1892 became March 6, 1905) and sometimes it doesn't even though the cell is the same format.

6/13/2016 - 6/19/2016
6/15/2015 - 6/21/2015
6/16/2014 - 6/22/2014

I want the slicer to sort by actual date.

Convert Cells With Percentage Format To 'same' Decimal In A Column With Mixed Format

Jun 7, 2006

I have a column of cells with values - 0.2%, 0.32%, 0.22, 0.5 etc. The cells with % symbol are in ' Percentage, 2 decimal' format while the plain numbers are in 'General' format i.e. column contains cells in either of these formats. I need a macro where I can specify the column and it will select the cells with the % format, convert it to 'General' and multiply the result by 100 eg. 0.2% converted to 'General' becomes 0.002. When multiplied by 100, result is 0.2 i.e. is displayed without the % symbol.

Formula To Identify Lowest Supplier?

Jul 10, 2014

I'm trying to add a formula to a sheet comparing multiple suppliers rates for different items, in a table similar to this:

Item Supplier 1 Supplier 2 Supplier 3
Socks $3 $4 $5
Shoes $10 $16 $12
Pants $17 $11 $12
Shirts $79 $25 $20

I've added the usual max, min, average formulas to it, however what I want to do is create a column which will tell me which supplier has the lowest rate, therefore for it would show as a column showing Supplier 1 is cheapest for socks, Supplier 1 cheapest for shoes, Supplier 2 for pants and Supplier 3 for shirts.

Convert Column Of Mixed Data Into Unique Data

Jan 31, 2007

I need to convert a column of data which will have repeated values into a column that turns that data into data with all unique values. Below is an example.


I had a solution until I wanted to turn this range into a list. The solution was.

=If(ISBLANK(A2),"",A2&"_"& COUNTIF($A$2:A2,A2))

When this data is in the list the <A2> in the range stops incrimenting from row to row and simply turns into the last row of the list. I have an example spread sheet upon request.
