How To Find And Replace Range Of Data

Jul 12, 2014

How to find and replace a range of values. I've looked online, and searched the forum with no success.

I have a list of cells in a column labled "Check #1", "Check #2", "Check #3" ect. I'm trying to build a Macro that would replace any value from "Check #1" to "Check #50,000" with "Outgoing Check". I know this can be done manually with relative ease, but it will need to be done very very very often, so I'd like to automatic it as much as possible.

How to put the steps into a Macro or Formula that could be re-produced with ease.

Find And Replace Items In Specified Range Automatically

Aug 20, 2007

I am trying to find a way to automatically find and replace 2 letter symbols in a specific column into the words they represent. There are many symbols and rather than do a find and replace for each symbol, I would like to write a macro that would do them all at once.

Find And Replace Different Values In A Range Of Cells

May 8, 2008

I would like to be able to replace all cell values in a range of 20c by 20r (i.e. 400 cells). In all cases the condition would be the same (find all cells with a value greater than than zero), but then replace with different values.

e.g. Cells with value >0 in range CX119:DQ138 replace with "NT", then cells with value of >0 in range DR119:EK138 replace with "NU"

I thought you could do it with find and replace by just selecting that range of cells but can't see how to set the conditional >0 bit.

Find & Replace With Column Data

May 30, 2009

I was wondering if it is possible to perform a find and replace which would replace data from another column. We have a lot of data fields of our inventory that we exported which we are trying to condense for another program.

Example: I have a description column (AV) that has [[Manufacturer]] within the description. We want to find [[Manufacturer]] and replace with our data column (DD).

This is the data that has our manufacturers name in it. We have several find and replaces to do within the description column besides the above field.

Excel Script - Find And Replace Data

Oct 16, 2013

I am looking to make an excel script that can find and replace data.

Situation:
A--------B-----------C
Cat------Dog------Banana
Dog------Fish------Apple
Fish------Cat-------Orange

So the macro would look at the data in a cell in column B, then look at the adjacent cell in column C, and replace all instances of that data in column A with what if found in C. So the results would be:

A------------B-----------C
Orange------Dog------Banana
Banana------Fish------Apple
Apple--------Cat-------Orange

But that's not all, I would like it to not change cells in A that already have been changed once! (I'm trying this with changing the background colour)

I am at a complete loss and need to find and replace over 3000 items.

Find And Replace Data From File Import?

Mar 24, 2014

.Find and Replace data

I have a file that I keep importing into Excel that shows up in Column A. The Range typically varies to how short or how long the end of the file is. But every time I import a file in, the last 20 rows are the same. The 20 rows I want to replace with other values on another sheet.
This is a simple example:

SHEET_1
COLUMN A
1
2

[Code]....

I would want to replace the numbers with the letters. The biggest thing is if I can filter or have excel find the end of the file (using a shift+crtl+End) or something and have a formula on sheet2 that it can reference; then replace. Any way to have excel automatically find the end of the file and replace values without manually doing it.

Excel 2003 :: Find And Replace Missing The Ability To Replace Values?

Feb 5, 2009

This problem has come up fairly frequently lately, and I'm not sure how to fix it, or if this is by design...but in Excel 2003 I can't seem to do a "Find and Replace" based on the value of a cell. I can do a find, based on cell value, but the moment I change to the replace tab, the "values" and "comments" are missing from the "look in" dropdown.

I've only noticed this when I'm trying to replace on a filtered list, so I'm not sure if that is part of the issue.

Perhaps an alternative way of arriving at the same goal. Basically I have a worksheet with a number of filtered columns. They are filtered just right, using custom filtering, and so I do not want to undo the filters. In some columns I have formulas that are returning #VALUE! errors. I'd like to replace all of these cells with NA.

Find Values On One Tab And Replace Data From Adjacent Cell

Apr 3, 2014

I have one sheet in my workbook called 'mapping' which has a list of codes on it, the length of which will vary on a periodic basis.

I have another fairly large sheet on the workbook called 'data' (around 2000 rows) that will also vary in size. I want to do a search on the data tab for each code that is contained on column 4 of the mapping tab and if the code is found, enters the corresponding value from column 1 of the mapping tab to the cell 6 columns to the left of where the code was found on the data tab (cols H and B in this case).

The issue I have is the codes maybe contained more than once on the data tab so I need the find/replace command to search the whole of the data tab and perform the task each time.

Find And Replace On Some Duplicates In Huge Data File

Mar 6, 2014

I have a file with 300k lines of SKU data. This is data by month for 12 months (so roughly 25K SKUs per month, with changes in SKUs each month.) I take this data and pivot it and drop it into a file.

I noticed last month when I prepared that the SKUs have names next to them, and sometimes the information is pull by the name instead of the SKU. Unfortunately, in the master data, someone entered different names in a few of the months. So for example, in some months SKU 0012 is Green B and in other months it's Green Beans. I need the names to be the same.

Is there a quick way to fix this given that I'll have 12 records and maybe 3 will be one name and 9 will be there other? Finding and replacing every one is a chore because on pivot there are 40k. I don't think I can do a quick remove duplicates because it would remove multiple months. I just want each SKU to have the same name.

Find And Replace To Not Replace Characters Found As Wildcards?

Jul 2, 2013

I recently became owner of a spreadsheet with some issues, and I am trying to make it useful. Each row has a URL of a blog post, and I want to extract the date from it (which is present in each URL) while getting rid of the rest of the URL. I was able to get rid of everything up to the year (which comes first), but then the URL continues, for example, 2013/05/16/the-rest-of-the-url/ and I would like to just have 2013/05/16 remain.

I am trying to use find and replace with the find box reading 2013/??/??/*/ and replacing it with 2013/??/?? which effectively erases everything else in the url, but leaves ?? instead of the numbers. Is there any way to have it so that it keeps whatever was in the original box?

In particular, I am trying to write code to break to an error message when the value or string searched for isn't found in the find / replace.

Find And Replace ....

Jun 9, 2009

I was wondering if it is possible to do this unique find and replace that is explained below.

I have many columns with data from our database. I have one column that has my html layout in it. I want to find within the html text data and replace it with data from another column for that row.

Example: We have [[manufacturer]] in the html area that we want to replace with data from our column called Manufacturer. So, it will replace the text in the html named [[Manufacturer]] with that rows Manufacturer data we have.

Is that possible to do?

Find & Replace In VBA

Nov 15, 2006

I am trying to find and replace #N/A from a formula (link to another sheet) with nothing in the cell, using VBA.

Using this code it will do the first "find"
Cells.Find(What:="#N/A", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt _
:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _
True, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
ActiveCell.ClearContents
Trying this
Cells.Replace What:="#N/A", Replacement:=" ", LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:=True, _
ReplaceFormat:=False
LookIn:= is highlighted and I get a "named argument not found"
Don't understand that because LookIn:=xlValues works in the first code.

I did try and place After:=ActiveCell,before this, but that does not work. I Get the same error.

I have more then one cell with the #N/A which I would like to get rid of. I want this to work only on this one sheet. The other sheet that the formula is pulling from does have #N/A, and that is okay, I need it there.

Find And Replace ..?

Mar 2, 2007

I have a list of sales associates that are assigned numbers. For example, John Doe is 1022. The data I have to work with only shows his number 1022 but for my reports management wants the name John Doe. I have about 60 sales associates and have a VB code that 'finds and replaces'. The code is huge. It has slowly grown out of hand, with more sales associates added daily. I also have 22 sheets in one workbook with specific columns to search for the numbers to replace with the names.

This is what I would like to do. Have a sheet named associates, as more associates are added I would just have to add their name and number. Have two columns with headers column A - Associates column B Associate #. Name ranges for the two columns and write a code that says look in the sheet associate, at named range 'numbertoname' and if the current sheet 'total sales' I am in has the number 1022 in column C replace it with the name John Doe. It seems like it should be easy but.......I have tried and tried today.

Find And Replace *

Sep 15, 2006

I am facing a strange problem with Find and Replace function of Excel. I converted a PDF document into a Word document. I copied the tables in the Word document to an Excel document. As the data had many * characters, which I did not want, I used Find and Replace function to get rid of them. However, to my surprise, two things were happening.

1.When I tried to replace * in a cell with Construction revenue ********************** , it was deleting all the contents of the cell.
2.When I tried to find all the cells with * , it was selecting cells even without *

I tried various things like changing the format, pasting only values..etc, but nothing worked. Finally I had to use the Replace function of VBA to do the task. For further analysis I am attaching my Excel file with that data.

HOWEVER when I do the find & replace I don't want it to change whatever the current value is to D3 I want it to stay as whatever it was already....so how do I exempt the "D" value from the search?

Sep 11, 2008

I'm using Excel 2007 and trying to replace about 2000 commas with full stops. I want to use find and replace but keep getting a message saying that Excel cannot find the data I'm searching for.

Excel help suggests I haven't clicked on "find" before clicking "replace" but I did.
I've tried highlighting the column in which I want to make the replacements, but same message.

Also tried highlighting nothing, same message.

Tried copying and pasting the whole thing into a new file, but same message.

Find / Replace Two Different Chars

Mar 26, 2009

Assume someone typed the hereunder date ad TEXT.

The Formula bar shows: ="01/01/2009"
The cell presents: 01/01/2009

I need to remove the equation sign as well the two inverted-commas.

I am familiar with the "Text to Column" feature, the use of SUBSTITUTE Function, a short macro and also the Find&Replace is also a good idea but, as far as I understand,
it must be run Twice(!)

I am looking for a way to use Find&Replace in "One! shot" - meaning, to put the TWO different(!) characters [ the '=' and the " ] in the 'find what' window,
leaving the 'replace with' window empty.

I know that something similar to that can be done in a "Word" document - but can it be accomplished in Excel?

Look, Find, And If True, Replace?

May 14, 2009

I have two groups of numbers. The first group is x amount of rows and each row has 6 numbers. The second group is x amount of rows and each row is 7 numbers.

Each number from the first group needs to check to see if it exists in the second group. If it does exist, the cell should change to a highlighted cell, or switch to an 'X' or something else that identifies it has been matched. Note: Numbers may be duplicated in both groups. Is there an easy way to do this, or will it involve programming? I'm attaching an example of the "group" setup.
