Insert Hyphens In Between Multiple Values In Same Cell?

Sep 25, 2013

I've a set of 10-digit numbers within a cell, which need to custom formatted in a particular format.

i.e., '1234567890' should be custom formatted to '123-456-7890' (for this i'm using the custom format 000-000-0000)

However, when I have multiple 10-digit numbers like shown in the trix (click here), i'm not able to format them because they are all comma-separated.

Do LMK if there is a workaround

Remove All Hyphens From A Cell

Aug 24, 2006

I am trying to take a list of part numbers that have an undefined number of hyphens in the part number, and remove the hyphens in order to use the VLOOKUP function.

Example part numbers are AA34-55A3-L, 444342-02, etc.

I tried searching for threads that helped on this subject but they all involved VBA, which I do not know how to use with Excel. I took VB senior year of high school and C for a semester in college, so I recognize the commands, but I have no idea how it's implemented.

Is there a [relatively simple] way to do this with Excel functions? If not, how would I implement this using VBA? I am currently using the 2003 edition.

Insert Values To Multiple Cells At Once

Jan 18, 2008

I am writing a simple VB app to allow my analysts to export data from a SQL table into an Excel spreadsheet. I have the following
lngRow = lngRow + 1
Do While Not rs.EOF
lngCol = 1
For Each objField In rs.Fields
objExcel.Cells(lngRow, lngCol).NumberFormat = "@"
objExcel.Cells(lngRow, lngCol).Value = objField.Value
lngCol = lngCol + 1
lngRow = lngRow + 1

The code works perfect... except... it takes far too long (as one would expect from iterating through 11,000 records cell by cell)

Is it possible to set the values for an entire row with one statement (or even better, the whole sheet at once), like maybe I have a string that is tab delimited or something

Insert Values Based On Other Cell Value Reference

Mar 21, 2014

The first three columns of a spread sheet we use if function to insert values to these cells based on the next three column values. We have already done it using IF function. However, the same function should happen through macro by referring to the column headers.

Example 1:
If in column E header (E1) ‘Contract_Status’ and E2 cell value is ‘FAIL TO PAY’ then A2 value should be ‘No Owner’, B2 value should be ‘Terminated’ and C2 value should be ‘FTP’

Example 2:
If in column E header (E1) ‘Contract_Status’ and E3 cell value is ‘TERMINATED’ then A3 value should be ‘No Owner’, B3 value should be ‘Terminated’ and C3 value should be ‘TERMINATED’

Example 3:
If in column E header (E1) ‘Contract_Status’ and E4 cell value is ‘EXPIRED’ AND column F header (F1) ‘Contract_Renewal_Status’ and F4 cell value is ‘Cancelled by Customer’ then A4 value should be ‘No Owner’, B4 value should be ‘Renewal Cancellation’ and C4 value should be ‘cancelled’

Column B contains geographical Areas. Column C contains a list of business departments.

North Env
North Env
North Ops
North Sales
North Sales
North Sales
South Env
South Maint
South Ops
South Sales
South Sales
South Sales


The values and number of these departments will vary. I want to insert lines to sum the totals at the bottom of each geographic area based on the number of different departments. So, for this example, for the North three lines would be inserted. For the South, 4 lines would be inserted.

Fractions To Decimals With And Without Hyphens

Feb 12, 2014

I have fractions and whole numbers in a column as per the following.

E13 = 3/4
E15 = 5
E17 = 1-1/2

I can use the formula =SUBSTITUTE(E17,"-"," ")+0 which gives the correct result of 2.5 and also correct
for E15 with the answer 5.

But I'm stumped how to get it correct for E13 where it is less than whole number.

I can use the formula =IF(E13=0,0,("0 "&E11)+0) but that won't work for the remainder of the cells.

Formatting Cells With Hyphens And 0s

Jul 16, 2014

I am having a problem with formatting a cell. I have several (into the hundreds) of items that are being inputed and I am looking for resolution with formatting. I have gotten pretty close but there are some kinks that I can't seem to work out.

The column that I am working on has numbers such as these (they aren't currently formatted)


these numbers are organized by 2 digit year (XX) a hyphen (-) and then a five digit number (XXXXX) hence XX-XXXXX.

My number already have the hyphen in them and the auto format has taken some of the numbers from XXXXX to XXX if the number started with two zeros.


Is there anyway to custom format the cell so that it will turn

This into this
14-123 14-00123

But leave this 14-12345 alone?

The closest I have gotten to an answer is this formula 00"-0"0000, but that messes up the larger numbers.

Macro: Insert Multiple Sheets & Name As Cell

Dec 15, 2006

I found a macro code in this forum (Macro: Insert Sheet & Name As Cell Text first empty cell it should stop, but I do not know how to do that. (for example: If cells text is: A1: DOG, B1: CAT, C1: MOUSE then macro should create worksheets named DOG, CAT and MOUSE). I would save code to macro.xls file, in that file it would be also worksheet named LIST with cells names A1: DOG, B1: CAT, C1: MOUSE... in first row. But I would like to run macro on other files, so this new worksheets would be created in that new file and not in macro.xls where where macro and LIST are saved.

Sub AddSheets()
Dim strName As String
strName = Sheets(1).Range("A1")
Sheets.Add After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
ActiveSheet.Name = strName

Insert Extra Rows On Data Based On Values From Another Cell?

Jun 12, 2014

I need to create extra rows of duplicate data. The number of duplicate rows depends on the number of semi-colons in the 15th column (column O).

Sheet 1 is the original working file. Sheet 2 is the result of how the executed macro for the first 2 lines of data. The first line in sheet 1 has 7 semi-colons, so there should be 7 rows of duplicate data created in sheet 2. The second line in sheet 1 has 6 semi-colons, so 6 duplicate lines, etc.

Find Empty Cell In Row After Certain Point Then Insert Values From Another Sheet

Jun 4, 2014

I'm trying to create a macro that when run, scans Row 12 (only after column E), Finds the first empty cell, then inserts the cell value from Sheet4 CellE8. Then the hard bit begins. I need it to insert cell info in all the cells below it, from different locations...

For example



In the above sheet, I need it to go to cell D2 and insert the values from Sheet4 CellE8, Then proceed to D3 and insert data from Sheet3 D4, then to cell D5 and insert data from Sheet1 A7, etc etc

I dont mind doing each cell individually, but they will always be in the same column (and row 2 "Value" will always be the one that determines the next empty column).

Calendar Macro To Insert Multiple Dates Within The Same Cell

Jul 4, 2014

Attached is what I use as a Calendar Macro and it works great for single active cell use.

I have a column for 'Notes' and I can only use 1 cell per item so every time I have an update about a specific item I go the to notes section and put a date and leave few spaces then type in whatever the notes are. Currently I'm doing it manually and I tried to use my macro on the Notes column and what it does is to remove everything in the cell and replace it with whatever date I choose in the calendar.

find a way to use my current Calendar Macro to add a date in the cell instead replacing everything in the cell with a date.

VBA - Copy Range With Multiple Same Values Based On Other Cell Values

Aug 31, 2012

I want to build a database where the user can select a specific time period. I have a static file with the time periods and the related values. For instance I have in column A1:A15 the time periods from January 2011 to Dezember 2011, but I have some dates multiple times as there are more values attached to it. For instance I have in the first 4 rows January 2011...what I want is when someone puts in the value January 2011 in cell B1 and Dezember 2011 in cell B2 that the whole static file gets copied to another location (including the multiple dates) displaying the chosen time period. Similarly if someone puts in the value March 2011 to November 2011, I want only those values to be copied.

Multiple Options Cell Values Based On Multiple Criteria Variable Inputs?

Mar 18, 2013

I maintain the data flow at my work. We send and receive the data using excel files with specific formatting that I then upload to the database. Each time I send or receive the excel file I must log them, this is what my code question refers to.

I use RDBMerge to merge all the contents of the 100 plus excel files into one worksheet. The first part of the macro cleans up the merge data for use in the log (i have attached an example of the clean data and finished log).

The blue shaded area of the "Raw_Data" is what the clean data looks like, the yellow column is what current macro records for each record.

As you can see by the example the Raw_Data is only two files LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121228_01 & LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121230_01, each with more that one record.

The log code in column "H" Is based on this criteria:
First Letter of the Unique ID in column "E" - O, M, or L
Program Type in Column "F" - U or R
1. O-U = U
2. O-R = RU
3. M-U = U2
4. M-R = R2U
5. L-R = R

You will note that Columns G-R of the "Log Sheet" correspond to the "Record Type" found in Column "G" of the "Raw_Data" sheet.

This is the area where my skill at using scripting dictionaries fails.

The results for the log list each file only once, but the log code for each corresponding "Record Type" in columns G-R of the "Log Sheet" must contain each unique instance of the code. In other words

if LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121228_01 contains an O-U with an "A" Record Type and an M-R with an "A" Record Type; then, on the log sheet there needs to be the codes "U/R2U" in the cell intersection of the LL_LLL_BOB_ToLLLLL_20121228_01 record row and "A" column (which is column "G")

So, If the File contains one of each code for each Record Type the corresponding cell must house one of each code separated by a "/" without any spaces. This means the cell value could no code, or one code and all the variations in between to all five codes. Also, for ease of human reading the log codes should be concatenated in the 1-5 order that I listed them in (U/RU/U2/R2U/R)

Here is my code so far.

Option Explicit
Sub test()
Dim dic As Object, a, i As Long, rng As Range, e, w, n As Long
Set dic = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")

Vlookup Multiple Values Then Concatenate All Values In One Cell?

Jul 23, 2014

two formulas for one data set. The data is attached in the spreadsheet: "Product IDs". The data is a set of Master Product IDs (parent) and the Linked to them Products (children). I need to create a relationship between unique parents (Master Product IDs) and their children (Linked Products)

I need to create two formulas:

1. From the Data Set table, need to vlookup the unique value in column A (Master Product ID) and return comma delimited (concatenated) corresponding values from column B (Linked Products). So, the result will be as shown in Table 2.

2. From the Data Set table, need to vlookup the unique (de-duplicated) parent/children relationship in column A (Master Product ID) and return comma delimited (concatenated) corresponding values from column B (Linked Products). There are total 3 parent/children relationships in Table 1. So, the result will be as shown in Table 3.

I want to group the first four rows because Accounts 33010 and 33015 are in the same department. Same with 50050 and 500060. I want to then insert a row below the last row with "33015" as its Account #. And add the values for Debit and Credit. It'd look like this:
