How To Remove Quotation Marks From Worksheet Output
Jul 16, 2014
I have an excel program that reads a file and prints it to the work sheet, but I can't figure out why it puts quotation marks around the line of text. I would like to remove the quotation marks from column A and column D.
I would like to query your knowledge database (too much VBA I guess ) as I have a predicament that I cannot seem to solve.
Here is the thing: I am trying to write a sub that would enable me to automatically put in place extensible name ranges (the Offset worksheet function).
The problem is that, despite everything seems to go well, the reference in the name box displays : ="DECALER($C$2;0;0;5-1;1)" (the string comes from a variable and Decaler is Offset in French). These quotation marks are the culprits for sure, as taken off the formula works beautifully.
I've tried everything I've found on the internet, that is to say: Replace(String, Chr$(34), "") so on and so forth, but these marks are not recognized a part of the string so they escape the replacement.
I have the following line of Selection.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="=2009_15", Operator:=xlAnd
The highlighted portion is going to change from week to week. I have never been able to put a variable inside of quotation marks. I am sure it is simple, which explains why it is out of my mental grasp. how I can assign a variable in there?
To prevent the display of values in a worksheet, I have used an If statement in the format: =IF(I67=""",""",I67). This generally works well; however, I have discovered that if the input value for I67 is actually zero, there is no value displayed in the cell. I need the value to be displayed as a numerical zero so that it can be used in subsequent calculations.
I'm using a query that dumps information into Excel. The query automatically creates a formula in each each cell. For instance if the first value in the query showed FUNSTUFF, after dumping it into Excel, the contents of the cell would show ="FUNSTUFF". I can just use a find and replace to get rid of the leading =", but sometimes the values of the cells are supposed to have a quotation mark, so using the same method to remove the trailing quote won't work. I need a way to search each cell, check if the last character in the string is a quote, and if it is, delete it.
I am having a problem with the correct coding needed for a qotation mark
i wish to place a quotation mark around some text with coding example "TEST" by using the code below this appears fine and looks fine when i save the file, however when i open that file in a .txt file i see """TEST"""
This is the coding i am using and can see it may be where the problem lies
As a data download I got a block ** text with each item enclosed in "" "" and comma delimited. I converted to a table and copied the column I want to a 2003 excel file. How can I remove " " and treat column as simple numeric? I will then have to convert large application to 2007 as I am in that now.
I imported data in to column A and it looks like it inserted a question mark (which I think represents a space or tab )before about half the names.
So when I import the data in my contact manager it inserts a square and throws off the import.
I know it is a simple question but have not been successful.
I am using Excel 2007.
All I want to do is copy and paste the data and remove all those question marks. I would assume it is simple as pasting with "remove formatting" but I am not seeing that option.Plus they are names so I want to keep capitalization etc.
I also tried pasting in a text file to remove formatting and paste in the text file.. (the names ended up indented) and then "paste special" back in to excel with no formatting .which I was able to do in 2000 but with no luck with 2007.
creating a macro that would compare two worksheets and their differences would be copied into a third worksheet in the same workbook? Several key criteria is needed:
1) The third worksheet would need to note only the data from the 1st and 2nd worksheets (including headers) that had differences. An additional column would do the difference calculations for the data whereby numeric values are subtracted (worksheet 2 from worksheet 1 values) and non-numeric values would note "Pass" or "Fail".
2) All data values that had differences would be formatted in yellow shading on the third worksheet.
3) The unique ids from column A in worksheet 1 would have to have be noted in column A of the third worksheet; even if they didn't have a difference from worksheet 2.
4) The third worksheet would need to note all of the columns noted in worksheet 1 and include the difference column for each unique column.
5) Flexibility in code to allow for addition of new columns to analysis.
see attached sample spreadsheet whereby Worksheet 1 = "dv file", Worksheet 2 = "price file" and Worksheet 3 = "Error" for purposes of this discussion.
I get a macro which will provide me coloured data by eliminating the non-cloured(with white) data. Sheet1 has a combox of worksheet within an excel sheet which is listing all the worksheet in an excel sheet.By selecting the worksheet name(for example sheet1, sheet2.....sheet26) and I can move to worksheet I selected and can view the data(coloured one).I have around 25 excel worksheet within an excel sheet and each sheet has various different kind of colors but I dont want the output to show non coloured data after I select the worksheet in Combo box.
Need macro to search xls files in folder/directory for common text string "see reference" and then output the file number which is located in cell A1 to new spreadsheet for each file the text "see reference" is found.
I'm trying to compare 2 worksheets with the same headers(NAME, ADDRESS, CONTACT NO...). What codes should I use that when there is a duplicated row in worksheet A and worksheet B, it will be deleted and when there are 2 names with different addresses and/or contact no, the whole row in file A will be obtained. Output should also be in another worksheet. It goes like this.
worksheet A NAME ADDRESS CONTACT NO JOE ABC 123 MIL XYZ 567 NIK LMN 234 NED QRS 456
So the output should be:
worksheet C NAME ADDRESS CONTACT NO JOE ABC 123 MIL XYZ 567 NIK LMN 234 NED QRS 456 JIM JKL 345 SAM FGH 789
I have a worksheet with five columns (A, B, C, D and E)
The cells in Column B contain letters and/or numbers (without spaces) in no particular order. The cells in Column C contain letters and/or numbers (without spaces) in no particular order.
I want to compare all characters in 1st Cell of Column B with all characters in 1st Cell of Column C, and display the matching characters in 1st Cell of Column D, and the character count of 1st Cell in Column D must be displayed in 1st Cell of Column E. note that multiple instances of the same character must not be treated as duplicates. When execution on 1st Row is finished then repeat procedure for Row 2, etc... Stop execution when first empty cell in Column B is located.
I have a workbook that I received from a vendor that when I click in a cell a comment appears. There is no line or comment indicator for each comment. So I went into the tools - options - views - comments section and chose no comments. The comments still appear and when I go to the tool bar - view - comments nothing appears. I checked for any VBA code and didn't see anything. I was able to get around this problem by copy/paste special into a new worksheet, but curiosity is killing this cat.
