Count Formula For Description Text Field

Sep 25, 2006

I import a database with mostly unique records which has a description field that includes, among other things: Model Name, followed by predominant color. Unfortunately, there are no seperate fields for the Model Name or Color, e.g.:


Is there a way to create a summary table which would count the number of occurences of the Model Name and the number of occurences of the color?

Fortunately, there are no more than 25 Model Names, and no more than 10 colors or color/combinations, so we could compare against two lists.

Lightspeed Long Description Import From Excel - Separated Paragraphs

May 2, 2013

I am currently trying to import multiple 'long descriptions' onto Lightspeed product cards for display on an upcoming website. This is probably a very basic excel problem but I can't seem to find a simple solution online. Basically When I paste descriptions into a cell they break up into separate cells by line or paragraph break When I need them to stay together as one long description. Even if I have text qualifiers around the text they still only import one paragraph into lightspeed. Maybe that i am not saving it as the right file extension...

Defining Field Format For Data Import From CSV

Jul 23, 2008

on data import from CSV file. The file is formated in a sligthly strange way:


I get into problem when importing using default CSV settings as numbers and date are understood like text. I need to replace "." with "," to get to number format. Used following Range("J5:K9999").Replace What:=".", Replacement:=",", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _

However I get values multiplied by 100 for some reason.

Converting date format gets eeven more complicated.
So I decided I can not use standard CSV import and need to define separate data source for each raw file This is not what I wanted, since I do import many files (10 at this point in time, but it will get growing). However, I would be ready to do that if there is no other option. So I go to "Create New Data Source" and under "Connect" I get to another input box called "ODBC Text Setup" where I select "Options" to define customer format. However, after selecting source file, Excel is not able to interprate fields. Tried clicking "Guess" button, no luck there. Thought it is because fo those "" before and after field value. So, just for a sake of experiment I opened file in text editor and removed those ". Still, can not read the file. The error message says "Text file specification field separator matches decimal separator or text delimiter. Guess failed"

I am out of ideas how to get this file properly imported. Hope there is a way to do that either by defining field formats while importing (perhaps that can be done via SQL, but I am not confident with it) or writing some code to change format after importing from text to Number and Date...

Auto Populate Field With Date When Other Field Is Selected From Validation List

Jul 4, 2013

In the following extract, I would like to have today's date placed into Col K when an entry is made into Col J.

Entry into Col J is from a validation list of 3 options. What I desire is that when one of these options is selected ("Complete"), then I would like today's date to be written into Col K.

Currently Col K has a validation list which comprises dates from 1st of each month from July to June.

I need a fixed date as text preferably, so was thinking the VBA function "Date" on a Change Workbook Sub.

The information is currently part of a Table in Excel 2007 that has about 500 records.



Month Completed

In Progress




Data Validation in Spreadsheet

Import Multiple Text Files & Copy Each Import

Jan 29, 2008

I'm attempting to import around 200 (and growing!) separate text files into Excel. I am using the formula below to import the text file and then using a separate macro to select the information I need, copy it into another spreadsheet, and then run the import macro again.

However, I have a problem in that my import macro gives me 'Run-time error '1004:

Application defined or user defined error''. At first this wasn't a problem as the information is pasted into the spreadsheet despite the error anyway. However, now that I am looping the macro it is obviously causing more problems as it prevents the loop. I would really appreciate it if anyone knows of a work-around or can spot an error in the coding to resolve this!

The code below shows is for the import macro only:

Sub ImportTextFile(FName As String, Sep As String)

Dim RowNdx As Long
Dim ColNdx As Integer
Dim TempVal As Variant
Dim WholeLine As String
Dim Pos As Integer
Dim NextPos As Integer
Dim SaveColNdx As Integer

Sum Turnover Where Name Is PART Of The Description

May 14, 2009

I am looking for a way to use the sum.if formula, combined with the find.spec (I am not sure if this is the correct formule, at the moment I only have the Dutch Excel version, it is meant to find a word as part of a cell)

The part I am struggling with is how to find the correct cells to "sum" when the criterium is part of the cell contents. e.g. Paul is the description in am looking for in "Paul is riding his bike" If so, then add the turnover to Paul. I have made a demo to clarify what I mean.

Find First/Last Value In Row & Return Corresponding Description Above/Below

Apr 8, 2008

I'm trying to find

1) the last and

AND I'd also like to

3) get the corresponding year ( Heading name) for both the

I've found solutions for all but 3.2. Thus the question remains:

1; year3; ; ; 23; ;
2; year2; ; 21; ; 53;
3; year1; 12; ; 45; 2;

In case it helps anyone looking for same information or providing help to solve my problem 3.2 the other solutions I've found are:

1) lookup last value in row

i) Find Last Number In Row & Return Heading
... also an additional VB solution

ii) Find Last Number In Row & Return Heading
... page also includes solution for 2), below

iii) Find Last Number In Row & Return Heading
... 2 VB solutions

2) Lookup first value in row
Find Last Number In Row & Return Heading

... page also includes solution for 1), above


3) Lookup heading of last populated cell in row
Find Last Number In Row & Return Heading


4) Could I e.g. modify the above to lookup the year of first value?

How To Display Description Of Options (list)

Feb 24, 2014

Any way to display the description of options (list) which in this case is a numbering code (like ECG201) in a data validation cell.

The length of the cell is not long enough for the users to know the appropriate description of the selected lists. I am now thinking there should be a way to display the description of each item so that users will know that ECG201 means "International College of Excellence", for example, instead of having to go from one worksheet (area) to another to know what an option means.

Description Column In Pivot Table

Aug 10, 2009

I often use pivot tables to summarize accounting data. I wish to summarize the data by account number, but also wish to display the account description next to each account number. Both the account number and account description are separate columns in my original table of data.

I've always managed to do this by the use of lookup formulas after the formation of the pivot table in a column outside the pivot table, but it would be preferable to have those descriptions as part of the table.

If I designate both the account number and account description as row labels, they land on two different lines.

Multiple Sums Depending On A Description

Dec 28, 2005

I really don't know how easy or difficult it might be, but here it is:

I have something like this (example) :

| A | B | C | D |
1 | 15| W1 | | |
2 | 5| W2 | | |
3 | 7| W1 | | |
4 | 9| W3 | | |
5 | 21| W4 | | |
6 | 14| W2 | | |

I want to have the result of all the W1 in D1, All W2 in D2, All W3 in D3 and all W4 in D4 without having to create any additional SUMs somewhere else to discriminate and then get the result (e.g. =IF($B2="W2",$A2,0) and copying the formula all along the column, then =SUM(xx:xx) and get the result.)

Excel Match Text In Description

Sep 2, 2013

I have about 70K rows of data. This is a pull from a CRM system and one of the columns contains Free text which may or may not contain a reference ID.

So basically, I need to be able to identify which (if any) of the 60 or so Reference ID appears somewhere in the text. It may be at the beginning, somewhere in the middle or at the end.

So i created two formulas:


I created 60 or so of these columns, all with a different Reference ID (MEBIG3 being the ID in this instance). I put the Reference ID in the Cell 1 of each of the columns. I then got a True in the cells wherever I matched the Ref ID to in the description field.

I then created another column with this:


[Code] ........

So wherever there was a True, it returned the Cell at the top of the column which has the Ref ID in it. I put a pivot table and it worked, but the problem is that Excel just can't really handle the number of calculations. The file keeps crashing and becoming corrupt (There are 70K rows, times 60 or so columns). Also I have actually run out of columns I can add in the nesting, I really need more.

Any way of doing the whole piece of analysis all in one Cell. So basically it says "If ADM1 appears anywhere in Column P return ADM1, If ADM2 appears anywhere in Column P return ADM2 and so on".
