# Insert A Zero On The Left Of A String?

Jan 22, 2014

this formula as a result =IF(LEFT(A3,1)="0",RIGHT(A3,LEN(A3)-1),A3) It worked great to strip the left most zero from a string of text numbers in the cells where the formula was applied.

However, now I need to put the zero back in lol!

So...how would I adjust the formula (or write a different one) to insert a zero as the first digit of a string of text digits?

## Insert Multiple Characters Into String With LEFT RIGHT Functions?

Apr 29, 2014

I've got a long list of account numbers of varying length and ultimately need to add a dash and a dot into these numbers. Here's an example

12345678 to> 1-2345.678
123456789 to> 12-3456.789
1234567890 to> 123-4567.890

The standard format is always 3 numbers after the . and 4 numbers between the - and .

I can get to this by doing a series of functions starting with this:

=LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-3)&"."&RIGHT(A1,3) to get 12345.678 or 123456.789

copy/pasting that value into another field and then doing this

=LEFT(E1,LEN(E1)-8)&"-"&RIGHT(E1,8) to get the results above

I can't quite figure out the format to combine the multiple steps/functions into one so that I'm not copy/pasting values and re-doing the function.

## Insert Column & Shift Left

Sep 14, 2007

I wanna shift a particular column (lets say column A) to the left, so I do the following:

hojaFAC.Columns("A:A").Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlToLeft

hojaFAC is a worksheet

BUT I get the next error when I execute my macro :
RUNTIME ERROR 1004
Select method of range class failed

Why do I get runtime error nš 1004 all the time also for other reasons. I think itīs the only runtime error I ever jumped into. But If I ever get a runtime error It's allways number 1004.

## VBA To Search String And Insert Row If String Not Found

Apr 11, 2013

I have a spreadsheet which has "Employee: [agent 1 name]" in column A and it may or may not have the word "Break" in the same column before it mentions "Employee: [agent 2 name]". The amount of data between agent 1 and agent 2 varies and am needing code which will insert a row above "Employee: [agent 2 name]" if "Break" is not found, and add the word "Break" in column A on the inserted row. I would need this to loop through the spreadsheet until all 100+ agents have been searched.

I'm also needing this done for the word "Meeting" and would insert a row 2 rows above the next agent.

## Excel 2010 :: Search And If Found Insert Data From Cell To The Left

Jan 17, 2013

I have two sheets with data. I wont excel to look for a value in colum A in sheet 2 the value to look for is defined in colum a in shet 1.

## String If Text Insert Date

Feb 11, 2010

I am trying to setup a variable from a dropdown selection box. Basically, If "Completed" is selected in the box, current date is set in the corresponding field.

The formula I have tried is:
=IF(F5="Completed",G5="",G5=NOW())

I have a variable string setup opposite of what I am going for that works:
=IF(AND(D5<>"Assigned",D5<>""),IF(E5="",NOW(),E5),"")

So if anything is showing other than assigned the date is input. But have not been able to reverse this for the desired output.

## Insert Double-comma At End Of String

May 25, 2008

i'm a complete excel novice, but i think this should be pretty easy for you guys...

i just bought a new satnav system after 4 years with tomtom...

anyway, to get the speed camera database to work with it, i must add a couple of commas at the end of each set of co-ordinates contained within the spreadsheet, like this:

-3.23956,51.52737,1,50,1,67,,
-5.29024,50.22664,1,50,1,67,,
-5.27461,50.23143,1,50,1,247,,

thing is, most of them don't have the 2 commas at the end and just end with the number, like this:

-3.23956,51.52737,1,50,1,67
-5.29024,50.22664,1,50,1,67,,
-5.27461,50.23143,1,50,1,247

therefore, what i need to do is make up a formula in excel to search for a double comma at the end of each set of co-ordinates and if it doesn't already have them, then it should insert them...

i'm guessing for anyone with excel experience, this should be pretty easy to solve...

## Insert Row Macro Based On Text String

Nov 20, 2009

I'd like to adapt my macro so that it would insert a blank row after it detects the the first 16 characters of text as "'Closing Balance"; or it could even detect "'Closing" as the first 8 characters if it would be simpler

The Data Begins in Row 5 of Column A

My Current Macro is as below which I have adapted from another one I used

It is not working since it is detecting for the exact text "'Closing Balance" whereas the data registry would write "'Closing Balance as at 31/10/2009" , of which the "as at dd/mm/yyyy" portion would change every time a report is exported, but the first part "'Closing Balance" or even just the word "'Closing" will always be the same.

## Insert New Row With String Based On Conditional Statement

Sep 6, 2008

I've been working on this project to propagate certain products through multiple categories. I chose to use excel to assign multiple categories to each product. On sheet1 I have setup products (column a) and qualifiers in the following columns (color, model, etc). What I would like to achieve is for the user to select yes or no for each category column and and if yes then have the corresponding category breadcrumb string (from sheet2) inserted into one specific column in sheet3. As the user continues to select multiple "yes" from the category columns for that single product, those additional category breadcrumbs get inserted at the end of the list in sheet3.

## Insert Pic Into Comment For Every Cell That Has Text Containing String .jpg Or .png

May 10, 2009

I need a nudge in the right direction with how to amend the below code so that it :
1: cycles though all cells in a workbook, and sees whether the text reference of the cell contains a picture filename (i.e. searches for .png or .jpg in the cell contents)
3: if (1) is correct, it retrieves the picture from "C:/Users/jeff/Documents/Standards/" and pastes it as a cell comment background in the cell to the right (and overwrites any comment backgrounds that might already exist there)

The code below does something a bit different: it looks in a defined range, then adds a comment with a background picture retrieved based on the text in the cell to the left.

I'm sure this is a pretty basic change, but my VBA skills aren't up to it...I've only just started reading though Walkenbach's Power Programming! I'm using Excel 2007

Sub InsertComment()
'www.contextures.comxlcomments03.html
Dim rngList As Range
Dim c As Range
Dim cmt As Comment
Dim strPic As String

On Error Resume Next

Set rngList = Range("A1:A5")
strPic = "C:/Users/jeff/Documents/Standards/"
On Error Resume Next
For Each c In rngList
With c.Offset(0, 1)...................

## Insert Column Macro Based Variable String Letter

I need both a column inserted before column J, and data entered into that new column in row 2 (thus J2, which would now be blank).

## Autofill Formula To The Left (fill To The Left)

Feb 5, 2009

I am having trouble filling a formulae series to the left on one spreadsheet, the fomulae being references to another sheet.

For example, I have two sheets 'Mtce Options' and 'Base Case'. In 'Mtce Options' I have the following formulae

A B C
1='Base Case'!A15='Base Case'!D15='Base Case'!G15

I want to fill to the left, incrementing the column references by a factor of 2 each time, eg. next two should be ='Base Case'!J15 and ='Base Case'!M15.

However, if I autofill to the left by highlighting A1, B1 and C1 or just B1 and C1 all I get is an inappropriate reference such as ='Base Case'!D15 or ='Base Case'!F15, respectively, in D15.

## Insert String In Another Cell When Entered In Cell

## How To Validate If Left Cell Value And Left Cell Above Value Are Not Same

Sep 16, 2013

I have a column that is giving unwanted value . dont know the reason as that excel file has been created by some other guy and I just started working on it .

My Question is how to move to 2 cells left(A for example) from from that unwanted value column. and check if
A is equal to cell above it , means B Cell(Row above A but same column).

As my excel file is totally based on Forms, Macros, I am not quite familiar with macros.

Is there any way to put if condition in one cell (column) and drag it all the way down which should work for all the values in these 3 column.

And also if A=B then I want to make that unwanted value cell="".

## Excel - UDF That Returns String Of Multiple String Objects / Possible To Color Font?

Sep 19, 2012

I have a udf that returns a string to the cell. The string is made up of multiple string "objects". What I am wondering is if I can set the font color of certain objects so that when the final string is built and returned, the font of those portions is set.

Ex. of simple idea (this is not actually my code, just a way to illustrate. I realize there is no point to this UDF):

VB:

Function StringReturn (Str1 As String, Str2 As String, Str3 As String) As String
StringReturn = Str1 & Str2 & Str3
End Function

Now what if I wanted Str1 and Str3 to be blue, and Str2 to be red for example. So that when the UDF calculates it would return: Str1Str2Str3

## Generating Random Number String Based On Alphanumeric String?

Aug 14, 2014

Wondering if it is possible to generate a random 4 digit number based off an alphanumeric string?

Example;

Cell A1 has 123XVF1234
Cell A2 has 321AFW4321

In B1 I would like to have a 4-6 digit number that is generated based on the alphanumeric data in Cell A1 (and so on down the list). If that is possible, I would also need to be able to convert back the 4-6 digit number back to its original alphanumeric value

Example;

If B1 returns 643562 it would need to be able to be converted back to 123XVF1234

## Change Current Cell Value If Number String NOT Letter String?

Apr 7, 2014

In sheet1 I have a simple database consisting of 5 columns of data

Column A : Name ie James Jones
Column B : payroll number ie 123456
Column C : shift times ie 1245-2124
Column D : job title ie floor
Column E : comments ie A/L or 0600-1500

what I would like is some code that will go down Column E and if a 'time string' ie 1300-2130 is found then copy this string and paste into corresponding value in column C. If a text string is found ie A/L or Sick or anything like this then ignore and move onto next cell, loop this until all cells in column E have been checked.
