Highlight Selected Cell When Using FIND

Jun 12, 2008

I have a worksheet with lots of data on it, resulting in a very busy layout. I have been using "FIND" to search for various numbers within the spreadsheet, however often times it is hard to see which cell "FIND" selects.

Is there a way to enable Excel to highlight the selected cell? For example could "Find" turn the cell yellow when it finds a match?

Find Min 2 And Max 2 Cell Values Then Highlight

Jan 22, 2009

I want to identify the 2 minimum valued greater than 0.00% in rows with percentages only. Then identify the 2 maximum values greater than 0.00% in rows with percentages only. The sheet changes in size (rows and columns) each day. C4 Row 4 is a constant starting place if that is necessary. I have been tweaking this code all night, but no luck. I keep getting a highlighted yellow error in editor @ oRg.Find(What:=iMin, _
I also don't know what an oRg is, I am using 2001, that may be the problem.

I have received a workbook containing lists, unfortunately the names are listed in individual cells - several per cell, separated by commas. I need to highlight wherever a particular name occurs without splitting the data from the cell, ie like Find but within the cell.

Highlight Entire Row When Cell Selected Without Losing Original Formats And Color Of Original Row

Sep 5, 2012

The problem is when I highlight a row with some color the original color of the row is gone, so I tried this code, and again, it's removing the original format and color for the row This is the code from McGimpsey & Associates : Excel : Highlight row with background colors

Code:
PrivateSub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Const cnNUMCOLS AsLong=256
Const cnHIGHLIGHTCOLOR AsLong=36'default lt. yellow
Static rOld As Range
Static nColorIndices(1To cnNUMCOLS)AsLong
Dim i AsLong
IfNot rOld IsNothingThen'Restore color indices

[code].....

How can I retain the range's historical color so that when I deselect the row it reverts properly?

Highlight A Selected Row

Aug 8, 2008

just bought a 22" wide screen monitor and when working in excel it's difficult to follow from left to right in a row i am looking at. i have 22 columns of info that are in view at any given time. the row number on the left gets highlighted and the cell i happen to be in is outlined with a double line border. is there a way to get the whole row outlined like the single cell?

i know i can achieve this by clicking on the row itself, but i tend to move a lot around the spreadsheet via the arrow keys.

Find All Row Values Selected In Multi Column ListBox & Fill Adjacent Cell

Apr 27, 2009

I have a listbox that has row and columns. The rows are combinations of options and the columns are Additives.

After selecting a row in Listbox1, (first column are names) i would like the value of the second column to goto a specific area.... find that value and in the cell to the right of it place a "Y". The "Y" would indicate that "yes" it was part of the selection row of the listbox. Same for third column, forth, fifth and sixth. The result from the listbox is a number of Y's and N's in the result page. Then making all that were not part of selected line and equal to "N" to hide row (height = to zero).

Listbox and expected result are in attached example worksheet.

The attached does show the need much better then I can explain it.

Find Total Hours By Searching Entire Rows Below Selected Cell Versus Cells In A Column

May 19, 2014

I'm using the following code to delete select rows one at a time. I need the last row in the range to remain therefore I prevented the user from deleting the row one up from the row that contains "Total Hours" (which is always in Column B). The code works great as long at the user clicks into a cell in column B. If the user clicks into a cell in column A, C, D, E, F, G, H, or I then the code allows the user to delete the last row.

I believe I need to search entire rows to determine if the row contains "Total Hours" .

Elseif Statement In Vba: If The Selected Cell Falls Between 1/01/06 And 31/01/06 Then Jan Would Be Selected

Oct 10, 2006

Basically it is a if statement saying that if the selected cell falls between 1/01/06 and 31/01/06 then Jan would be selected. The end part is not a problem; Im just not sure how to write the one line of code that would test if the cell falls between the two dates. I attemped to create it as shown in the code attached below but wasn't successful. I used an else if statement to test the other 11 months.

Sub test()
Dim SelectDate As Range
Set SelectDate = Range("SelectedDate")
If selectedDate >= 1 / 1 / 2006 And selectedDate <= 31 / 1 / 2006 Then
ActiveSheet. PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("PnLDate").CurrentPage = _
"Jan"
ElseIf selectedDate >= 1 / 2 / 2006 And selectedDate <= 28 / 2 / 2006 Then

ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("PnLDate").CurrentPage = _
"Feb"........................

Find And Highlight Text ...

Oct 10, 2007

Each cell in Range AL3..AL50000 have text (sentence - description of problem).

Cell AL1 has my search word (i.e. loose)

I would like to search range AL3..AL5000 for word "Loose" - if found highlight every cell where was found - Yellow.

If AL1 is empty - remove all highlights.

Here is what I have so far (patches of codes found in this forum)

Sub FindTextInCell()

Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim myText As String

myText = Sheets("detail_report").Range("AL1").Value

If myText = "" Then Exit Sub

Set Found = Range("AK2..AK56000").Find(What:=myText, LookIn:=xlValues, lookAt:=xlPart, MatchCase:=False)

If Not Found Is Nothing Then

Found.Interior.ColorIndex = 36

End If
End Sub

My code highlights only first found cell and if I type any other search word - highlight from the 1st search does not get removed.

Find Number And Highlight In Yellow

Jan 18, 2014

I would like to have a macro that searches a selected area for a number (there may be many of them in the spreadsheet) and highlight it in yellow. Please be noted that I don't only want it to search and highlight the number in its respective order, but also every one of its possible arrangement. To make it easier, please also be noted that all of the numbers I will need to search are only 3 digit numbers.

I have a spreadsheet with a stock list. Each item has an individual number. I have a code below, which I have doctored from other various sources. The problem I have is that if I search for number '12' the spreadsheet highlights every cell with 12 in (120 121 122 123 etc...) Is there any way I can change the code so that it returns only the 12 and not every cell that contains 12? The current code is as follows:

Quick Way To Find And Highlight Multiple Rows?

Feb 14, 2014

I have a very large spreadsheet (46,000 rows). There are a couple hundred rows I need to find and highlight, and also insert potentially-linked contract numbers in a second column.

For example:

Column 1: Column 2:
Contract # Linked Contract #
12345 67890

Is there a quick way to do this without using find and replace to highlight all several hundred of these rows? I have an hour and a half until I leave work and my boss wants it today! Compounded is the problem that there are about 100 versions of this spreadsheet I need to do this for.

Macro To Find Unique Values And Highlight Them?

Apr 9, 2009

Is there a way i can have a macro find the unique values in these 3 columns and highlight them yellow.

They should find uniques using all 3 columns, not find them within each column.

I included a file which shows what i start off with and what it needs to look like. Also if it matters the contents in the cells are from links. ( i know that matters because you have to put look in values in the code ).

VBA Code To Find Dups, Highlight Them With Different Colors, Pretty Complicated

Aug 29, 2008

I'm trying to find some vba code that will find dups on my worksheet and highlight them in a special way: first dup = bright yellow, second dup = bright green, third dup = bright red, and if there is a forth, fifth or sixth dup, then just increment color number to next one, than next, etc...

I would like for the code to run as soon as there is a change on the worksheet (when I finish entering data in a row). I think I already have the right code to do that:


Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("E9:E10000")) Is Nothing Then
Call dupSearch
End If
End Sub
I tested it out, seems to work as it should.

My major problem is that I need the code to check column F9:F10000 and compare the cells all along that column. That column concatenates 3 other cells in that same row (lastname&firstname&employee#), so if I run my dupSearch on that column only, I should find only real dups, and not just 2 people with the same name.

I also need to make sure it doesn't find empty cells, thinking they are dups. I would like to highlight column A to E of the row that contains the dup, and not just the cell in column F.

I have tried many other codes that I have found on the forum, but none of them work right with what I'm trying to do, and I just don't know enough VBA to make the changes I need.

Find Columns By Name And Highlight Them Certain Colors Based On Text In Another Column

Jul 9, 2009

I have a worksheet with 20+ columns. For this macro, I only need to focus on 4 of them. However, none of these columns are ever in a fixed position so the macro would need to find them by name and NOT by column position. Here they are...

1. Vacation Type (will only have a text value of either "Cold" or "Warm")

2. Vacation Started (will always have a date *x/xx/xxxx)

3. Vacation Ended (sometimes it will have a date '*x/xx/xxxx' and sometimes it will NOT have a date and will be truly blank)

4. Number of Days (currently has ALL truly blank cells)

THIS WHOLE MACRO SHOULD NOT BE CASE SENSITIVE ANYWHERE

Here's what I would like the macro to do...

Scenario 1 - for "Cold" values
Find "Cold" text values in the "Vacation Type" column
"Cold" values WITH a date in the "Vacation Ended" columnIF there IS a date in the "Vacation Ended" column in the same row, put the number of days difference between the "Vacation Started" column and "Vacation Ended" column in the "Number of Days" column.

The amount of days in the "Number of Days" column will determine whether these cells should be highlighted GREY or RED.

A) IF the number of days difference is 7 days or less, highlight the cells in the "Vacation Ended" column and "Number of Days" column RED.
OR..............................

Find Day Of Week Of Today And Display Date Of Selected Day?

Mar 9, 2014

I may be making this more complicated than it needs to be but I can't seem to figure it out. The goal of this spreadsheet is for General Managers of a restaurant to give feedback about food deliveries. These deliveries usually come on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday, but could for a list of reasons come on any day of the week. I want to automatically populate as much information as possible without requiring GMs to remember and enter dates.

A1 is =TODAY()
A2:A5 is a drop down where the GM selects the day of the week the delivery arrived. i.e. MON, TUE, WED, etc. I want the corresponding date of the past week to auto-populate in this cell (or even the adjacent cell if necessary) once the day is selected. For example, if today is 3/8/2014, when MON is selected in A2, I want the cell to automatically add "3/3/2014," making the entire cell read "MON 3/3/2014."

So if said GM is filling in this spreadsheet on a Saturday, and I want to display the date of the previous Monday, I need to find the day of the week of A1 (WEEKDAY function), and make A2 = A1-5.

If today is a Friday, it would be A2=A1-4, and so on for the 7 days of the week.

Then I would need to do all of this for if a Tuesday is selected in the drop down box, meaning IF(Saturday)Then A2=A1-4, etc...

I was trying to string together IF statements like this:

=IF(WEEKDAY(TODAY()=7),A1-5), IF(WEEKDAY(TODAY()=6),A1-4)

It works when I do only the first IF statement, but when I add another it returns #VALUE. I thought that excel would find the first true value and stop evaluating.

Auto Find Words And Delete From Selected Cells

May 20, 2009

it's possible to select a group of cells, or a column, and then have specific words (and the colon), like Email: Tel: Fax: and URL: found and removed?

I've got a list of contacts one after the other in a column like this

John
Accountant
456, Hillside Drive, Hamley
Tel: 09189374884
Fax: 0284764654
Email: john@email.om
URL: ww.johntheaccountant.com

The number of lines per contact isn't always the same.

Can it be done without Macros?
