Dec 18, 2009

I am trying to write a formula to reverse data in a cell. Basically I am converting a number to hex then I want to take that hex string and reverse it. So it would be something like this my original number is 400001001 my hex number would be 17D787E9 because I am only allowing it to show 8 characters. I want to reverse the 17D787E9 to read 9E787D71.

I am using Excel 2003. Looking for a way to find out whether some data I want to delete in a sheet is used by a formula somewhere else within the file. Is there a way to check that?

## Excel 2007 :: Copying Contents Of 1 Text File Into Another Using VBA

Jan 7, 2012

I am using Excel 2007, here's my question:

I just wrote two macros that each produce separate text files (call them 'A' and 'B'). I want to open 'B' with Excel VBA, copy all of its contents, and paste that content into 'A' right after a specific location in 'A' (where I have 10 consecutive asterisks, i.e., **********).

Most topics relating to Excel VBA and .txt files have to do with either importing / exporting into Excel (not what I want), or with associating .txt files to Excel (also not what I want).

## Text Search Returns Cell Text Contents Of Different Column In The Same Row

Jun 7, 2007

Search a worksheet for a user defined text string, and have excell return the contents of a predetermined column in the same row in which the text string was found.

A prepopulated worksheet has the text "gold" entered in cell T278.

1. user searches for "yellow_metal"
2. Excell finds "yellow_metal" in row 278, say in cell A278.
3. Excell then goes to predetermined column (programed as part of macro or VB), say "T", and returns the text contents of the cell in that column, T278 in this example.
4. Excell returns "gold"

## Format: Number And Reverse

Jun 20, 2006

I have a userform into which a user can enter a number. When they exit the TextBox the number that they entered must be formatted into the number format. eg 12345,67 -> 12.345,67 and -12345,67 -> (12.345,67). To do this is not the problem: formatnumber does the trick. What I am struggling with is to get VB to still recognise this as a number. I need the code that does the opposite of formatnumber. (12.345,67) -> -12345,67. I excell it works perfectly when you format a cell as custom: _(* #,##0.00_);_(* (#,##0.00);_(* "-"??_);_(@_). I want to be able to do the exact same thing in VB.

## Adding Number To Cell Reference Not To Contents

May 28, 2006

I want to create a formula that will refer to the cell I want by adding a number to the cell reference, not to the contents of the cell. For example, lets say that the cell C11 holds a value of 22. I want to add 4 to C11 to get my formula to reference cell C15, I don't want it to add 4 to the contents of C11 which is 22 and would give me a result of 26. I have a large spreadsheet and I can't just fill down the way I have it now and I don't want to have to retype the formula every time.

## How To Return Cell Contents If It Contains Partial Text

Jan 2, 2014

Below is a small sample of Column A from a spreadsheet I'm working with. All cells in the column begin with a 6 digit number:

115383_BOSTON
115384_NEW_YORK
115385_PORTLAND
115402_LOS_ANGELES
115403_WACO
115010_SAINT_PAUL
115011_SAN_DIEGO

Apart from the cell contents, each paragraph will be identical. (I would do this by hand, but there are about 500 paragraphs.). Is there a way to merge the cell contents like that into a text document (Word or whatever)?

Need to search a sheet and find cells that contain the text "Requirement". If found then i want that cell to become blank.

example
so in sheet1,

since both cells have the word requirement, I want these cells to become blank.

## Excel 2010 :: Cell Summing Through Referencing Neighbor Cell Contents?

Feb 12, 2014

we have a Excel 2010 worksheet containing multiple tables.

Table1
ColumnA ColumnB
1 Blue 12
2 Orange 14
15
11
3 Red 10

Table2
ColumnA ColumnB
1 Blue 11
2 Black 13
15
11
3 White 10

How do we do such a calculation/formula?

## Append Contents Of One Cell To Another Cell With Text That Still Editing

May 9, 2014

ie:

Cell A1 = Ref#01
Cell B1 = A1&(whatever I choose to type)

Result in cell B1: Ref#01whatever I choose to type

Looks like I would need a macro because a function will be overwritten as soon as I start typing in cell B1.

## Display Contents(text) Of A Cell Referenced By A Given Cell

Feb 9, 2009

I want to display the contents of cell B5 in A7 by using cell C7 to show the location of the cell to be displayed. Cell C7 has a formula that shows the cell location of information (text) that needs to be displayed. How can I show in A7 the contents of cell reference shown in C7? In figure attached I show an example to better understand. Want in A7 to show the contents of B5 by reading what is in C7. So A7 cell should show word Road.

## Search For Text Within Cell Then Return Contents Of That Cell?

Jun 19, 2014

So right now I have a spreadsheet that looks something like this:

A
B
C
D

[Code]....

As you can see, the stock names are slightly different in columns A & C (CORP. vs CORP, CO vs CO., etc). I need a formula in column D that searches column A for the first word in column C, and then retrieves the contents of that cell. I want to do this because I will then use a vlookup in column E to get the ticker for the stock.

Right now I have: =IF(ISERROR(SEARCH(LEFT(C1,FIND(" ",C1)),A:A,1)),A:A,"")

This formula searches column A for EXXON, but does not return the contents of the cell. Instead, it returns the contents of a different cell in the column.

## Excel 2010 :: Delete Cell Contents If Cell Contains Numerical Value?

Oct 8, 2013

Recently I have been practising writing my own macros in VBA. I am using Excel 2010.

I have been trying to write a macro to look at two columns in a worksheet (say, columns D and E) and to delete the contents (not the formatting, and I don't want to delete the cell itself) of that cell only if it contains a numerical value (e.g. 1, 2, 256 or any other number). If it finds a cell with letters, then it wouldn't delete the contents of the cell. The cells are currently formatted as "currency" cells.

I have been trying all sorts of things and I just can't get it to work. I can write a macro to clear a range easy enough, but I am stuck on getting it to delete the right stuff. I won't embarrass myself by uploading the code that I have been using..

## Text-to-Columns Delimiter Based On Cell Contents

Jan 12, 2012

I frequently review DAT files. These DAT files use a variety of characters as delimiters. I'm trying to devise a macro that will perform a text-to-column operation, using the content of a specified cell as the delimiter.

Here's my code, which uses - (ASCII 0254) as a delimiter:

Code:
With Sheet1
Range("A1", ActiveCell.End(xlDown)).Select
Do

[Code]....

Instead of having the delimiter hard-coded, I'd like my macro to use whatever character I enter into Sheet3.Range("i5") as a delimiter. That way, I can easily change my delimiter character as necessary.
