Assign Value To Text Formatted Cell

Dec 30, 2008

I want to be able to "count" apples and oranges. Is there a way to record a particular text in a text formatted cell and count it. e.g. 10 cells, 3 say "apples", three say "oranges", 4 say "plums". I want excel to keep track of the three types of fruit when I change them and give me a running number of each.

VBA - If Cell Contains Text Within Array In Different Workbook / Assign Value

Oct 20, 2012

I have a worksheet (WORK1) that contains two columns of values that I can add to or change if necessary. The first column would be a text string (STRING), the second column would be its category (CATEGORY).

Chevron Gas
Exxon Gas
Vons Groceries
McDonalds Hamburger

In a separate workbook (WORK2), I have a column (A) which contains text. Ex:

A1 = "Station 2134 Chevron Motor"
A2 = "ExxonOil 234"
A3 = "Vons store"
A4 = "Hamburger McDonalds"

I would like to assign B1, B2, and so on... a CATEGORY if it contains STRING.

For this example, B1, B2, and so on... would be assigned the values.

B1 = "Gas"
B2 = "Gas"
B3 = "Groceries"
B4 = "Hamburger"

Assign Value From Userorm Textbox To Variable?

Aug 18, 2008

I have created a userform with 3 textboxes and I want to return the values entered to variables for use in a procedure. I cannot figure out how to return the values.

Behind the command button I am unloading the form so that the calling procedure continues executing but my vars cannot see the controls.

I have tried making them public outside of the calling sub, but nothing. Can anyone point out to me what I'm doing wrong?

Assign Currency To Textbox Property

Jun 27, 2006

how I might assign the $ Currency property to one of my textboxes in my user form. I was hoping I could set the property in the spreadsheet and the form would inherit what properties the cell in the spreadsheet had but that did not work. Here is the line of code I tried to use to assign the property to the cell (TextBox 16 is the one I am trying to change)

Set c = Worksheets("database").Range("a65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)
Application.ScreenUpdating = False ' speed up, hide task
'write userform entries to database
c.Value = Me.TextBox1.Value
c.Offset(0, 1).Value = Me.TextBox2.Value
c.Offset(0, 2).Value = Me.TextBox3.Value
c.Offset(0, 3).Value = Me.TextBox4.Value
c.Offset(0, 4).Value = Me.TextBox5.Value
c.Offset(0, 5).Value = Me.TextBox6.Value
c.Offset(0, 6).Value = Me.TextBox7.Value
c.Offset(0, 7).Value = Me.TextBox8.Value
c.Offset(0, 8).Value = Me.TextBox9.Value

Formula / Macro To Search Cell Text And Assign Value?

Jan 30, 2014

I am trying to get a code which searches each row for a keyword, and then assigns a value to it depending on what group of keywords it is.

For example, if the Name or Comment mentions certain fruit keywords, I want it to assign the value: "Fruit", and if it mentions certain vegetable keywords, I want to assign it "Vegetables", and if it is unrelated to either, I want to keep it blank. If the name/comment mentions both fruit and vegetables then I want it to say "Error".

Since the keywords I am using are mostly two letters, I want the search to only search for the two letters on its own, and not as part of a sentence. e.g. if the key word is ED, I don't want it to return a value for "I rested". Instead, I want it to stay blank.

i.e. I want the code to take information from column A and B, and assign a value based on the keywords in column D and E. As an example:

Name Comment Value
V1 Eating vegetables are good for you Vegetable
null lock out of ep. Fruit
S-1 It is JUST
Fruit-sp Error

Fruit Vegetable

The formula I used so far is this: where C3 is the first value

In columns D and E I put a leading and trailing space between each word to only search for the keywords themselves, and not as part of a word. (e.g. ST is correct instead of haSTe).

This formula seems to work only for 60% of the information, problems occur when the keyword is at the end of comment sentence: the value is blank. e.g. in row B4 of the table I made above my formula returns a blank.

Textbox To Show Text From Cell

Jul 16, 2012

I have text in one cell and I need a text box to show the text from that cell.

For example, if I have text in B2, on a text box I put the forumla =B2. The issue I'm experiencing is that the text box cuts off the text. There's no logic to why it cuts off the text, it's not limited to number of characters and I've played about with the margins and wrap texting, etc, all to no avail.

I've attached a photo of the worksheet to show what I'm experiencing. [URL] ..........

Append Cell Text To Textbox

Aug 11, 2007

I write a daily status report that adds my daily comment to a cell with previous text in it. I then paste it in three other cells. This process is slow and tedious since the text in the cell is now becoming extremely long due to organizational and managerial restraints of the existing format. I use cut and paste and manual enter, a alt + enter, to space new comment. I would like to be able to enter the text in a cell and have it update the comment cell with the text in it and to update the text box. I have reviewed the forum and have yet to find the answer and use of how else to pose the questions.

Enter Data In Textbox And Go To Cell Containing That Text

Oct 19, 2011

I have a very long spreadsheet with about 3000 rows. lets say for simplicity that column A contains a list of product ID numbers. I am looking for some macro code where I can just type in the product ID into a textbox, then hit enter (or a 'go' button) and then the cursor will move to the cell containing the part number.

I know Ctrl+F will do the job for me, but because of the frequency that I do these searches, a text input box would be easier still.

The nearest solution I could find was the one here Find text but its a bit 'overkill' for my needs.

Changing Textbox Background Based On Other Cell Text

Jul 15, 2014

I wish for a text box (drawn Text Box, from the "Shapes" tab) to conditionally change its background color based on whether a cell in a different sheet says "Online" - in which case it should be green, or "Offline" - in which case it should be red. So far, the code that I have that doesnt work at all, which I'm not even sure where to place (I tried in the Workbook - Open?), is the following:

I also need to do this for a total of 9 Text Boxes, if that changes anything.

Adding Text From One Userform Textbox To Another Textbox

Oct 12, 2011

Private Sub cmdSearchButton_Click()
Dim txtbox As String 'stores lookup value
Dim x As Variant 'value for wwid txt box
Dim ForeName As String
Dim SurName As String
Dim wwid As Variant
Dim iPosition As Integer

[Code] .......

Here is my code, it does a vlookup and if the persons name is not found it will split the text entered into forename and surname but when i try and add

frmAdd.txtForename.Text = "&ForeName &"
frmAdd.txtSurname.Text = "&SureName &"

It actually displays &ForeName & in the text box of the next from rather than what ForeName is..

eg. John Smith -> search button -> user not found msg -> user wants to add user -> string is split into forename and surname -> forename = John , surname = Smith -> display this in the second form.

What code should i be using to do this, i thought that &ForeName & would work.

Assign A Value To Text

Sep 22, 2005

I have read a lot of posts, and maybe I am way out of my leage.

I am trying to setup a spreed sheet for our fire department.

We want to create a way to track training pay. When someone attends the
training we want to just put an "x" in next to their name in the column for
that training event rather then 9.75 for example. But we also want to be able
to add up all training for that individual for the year and see what we paid

The idea is we have a sheet that shows us checks of who attended and who
did not. But we also want to add up the pay associated with that x.

We want column A to be member names

Column B is a training event.

We want to go down and put in an "X" for each member who attended.

Now What I want is to have that "x" be associated with a dollar value. For
example lets say that they get $10 for that training.

THe idea is that I can run a total at the end of the year for each member
for each "x" and see how much money they recieved. I.E. the "x" is a hidden
value maybe that when I add up all the "x"s for a member it will give me
total dolar value for all training they attended.

Assign Number To Text

Jan 23, 2014

I currently have a spreadsheet which I use to do an audit of the office stationery supplies.

There 3 columns at the focus of this question:

F - Number of items in stock
H - Stock re-ordering level
I - Order Required

I currently have an IF statement to tell me if I need to re-order any stock, by comparing the Number of items in stock against Stock Re-ordering level.

The statement is =IF(H1>=F1, "Yes","No")

This works fine under most circumstances. However, in some of the H cells, I have the text "Special" which indicates that the stock will only need re-ordering on a special occasion.

Any value I enter in F will cause the I to say "Yes".

Is there any way to make the word "Special" equivalent to 0, so I says "No"?

Assign Text Value, Then Count

Nov 10, 2008

First challenge will be assigning point values to Words so I can them up and create averages etc

So I have 4 words I need to learn to assign point vales to, then create a formula that will count the points in a row. That will get me off and running,

So here is a very vague idea of what I mean, this would go in A5 as a example

if A1:D1= complete+2 incomplete+0 submitted+1 missing-1

so if I had a row that was:

Submitted | Submitted |Complete| Complete | Missing | 5

( 5 would be the value the formula would return 1+1+2+2-1)

VBA To Assign Value From Certain Text Other Value Ranges

Aug 22, 2012

I have a series of values in one worksheet across one row. The row contains "Yes" or "No" text and also some currency or other number values.

My spreadsheet looks like this (the blank shown is a cell that has no value or text):

Yes No Yes No (blank) Yes No $100 50% 5

What I'd like to do is to have a VBA code that assigns a value to each of these text and numerical values by the following criteria:

If Yes, Value = 0
If No, Value = 5
If "Blank", Value = 0
If $0 to $25, Value = 1

[Code] ........

Therefore, I want to have the outputs in another worksheet (sheet 2) and it should show the following numbers based on the criteria above:

0 5 0 5 0 0 5 4 2 1

Assign Value If Partial Text Match?

Mar 28, 2013

I have a long list of categories in the column A (seen below). To this list i want to assign keys that will support with further calculations (in a column B).

An example of such a key would be in the case of the given example "ACTION SPORTS" and "FOOTBALL". The whole list of these "keys" hast 17 elements.

It is evident that i will need some kind of a partial match. The one i have found on the internet, limittin itself just on the first or last number of characters wont work.

Would it be possible to select my "key - list" (all 17 of them). Then excel would asign a key, whenver it would find a partial match, matching the key?

Buttons To Assign Values To A Text Box

Sep 15, 2008

I have an issue with some excel spread sheet I am working on.

I am using Macros, Buttons to assign values to a text box.

When I do not protect the worksheet no problems.

When I include my calculation sub into my Worksheet Change module.
It sort of works but flashes a lot, and takes about 6 or more seconds.

When I dont include it in the Worksheet change module it doesn't flash and seems to work fine.

When I protect the work sheet, in my code I unprotect it and try to run my code, but it wont go through. I get an error.

Run-Time error '1004': Application-defined or object-defined error

Worksheet Module
Option Explicit ' Force the declarations of all variables in this module
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

'Call Calculate_Decision
If Range("MoreBorrowers") = "Yes" Then
Rows("21:27").Hidden = False
Rows("21:27").Hidden = True
End If
If Range("GuaranteeYN") = "Yes" Then
Rows("159:167").Hidden = False
Rows("159:167").Hidden = True
End If

I have tried adding in the Me. before my Range but nothing seems to work.

Assign A Number Value To Text Within Worksheet

Jane 123 Smith Street
Bob 543 Apple Street
Mary 543 Apple Street

I would like a way to insert a column that puts a 1 next to Jim and a 2 next to Jane, a 1 next to Bob and a 2 next to Mary and so on.
Ultimately, I want to sort the list and delete all the twos, thus deleting the duplicate address entry.

Assign Numerical Values To Text To Allow Calculations

Jan 31, 2010

I am working up a workbook template that will be used to process survey results. The way I ultimatley want it to work is that the user can paste data from another application into a worksheet in Excel, and then view analysed results on a second sheet (which are processed via formulae on a third, hidden sheet).

The problem I have is this: the data from the program that's capturing them are text values. For example, column B contains answers to a question where participants rate an experience, and the values are either "Excellent", "Good", "Fair", "Poor", "Awful". I want these to be converted to numerical values, on a scale where "Excellent" = 5 and "Awful" = 1, so that I can then average these.

So, the question is: Can I somehow tell Excel that "Excellent" = 5 and "Good" = 4 etc, and then use AVERAGE(B:B) on the text data and get a number back?

I did think of having an intermediate sheet that used VLOOKUP to create a copy of the first sheet (where the user pastes the text data) with the text replaced by numbers. But, because I don't know in advance how many rows will contain data (i.e. how many survey results there will be), I have to assume on the high side and copy down 50,000 rows. But, this takes ages to calculate.
