# List Names In Alphabetical Order From Multiple Worksheets

## I'm trying to get this formula to work across multiple worksheets. It suppose to list names in alphabetical order. I'm using these define names to get it to work. Also may I have another formula that list unique names in alphabetical order? Col_A=T(INDIRECT("''"&XWSLST&"'!A"&(2+MOD(S,N)))) N=50 S=ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&(N*ROWS(WSLST))))-1 WSLST=Sheet6!\$D\$2:\$D\$5 =IF(ROWS(\$E\$2:E2)<= COUNTIF(Col_A,"?*"),INDEX(Col_A,MATCH(LARGE(COUNTIF(Col_A,">"&Col_A),ROWS(\$E\$2:E2))=S+1,COUNTIF(Col_A,">"&Col_A),0)),"")

Sorting Multiple Worksheet Tabs In Alphabetical Order
I have a spreadsheet saved with one worksheet with all the results on it and 130 worksheets with calculations on them, each with its' own named tab along the bar at the bottom of the page. What I'd like to know is if it is possible to sort the tabs into alphabetical order so I don't have to roam through up to 130 to find the tab (and it's corresponding worksheet) I'm looking for.

Extract Text From Multiple Tables In Alphabetical Order
how to extract names from a worksheet and put them in another by alphabetical order?
There are 6 “could be more” blocks of data on Monday’s Worksheet, not all rows of each block will be filled. The idea is put the data from Monday WS in List WS without spaces and by alphabetical order. Because my English is not good enough, I attached a file with what I need.

Legend To Go In Alphabetical Order,
For Instance i might have a cell with the value 30KDPA

the one right below this needs to be 30KDPB

then 30KDPC

basically the last letter is going through the alphabetical order. Once it hits Z it should go to AA, AB, AC . Just like an excel file.

If i select the first cell and just drag it down it copies that exact same cell value.

Macro To Insert Letters In Alphabetical Order
I was wondering if there could be a way for a macro to Look at the column i have in this example and have it end up like the ends up with tab.

I start of with the "starts off with tab", and manually enter letters till i get the ends up with tab.

Basically the macro needs to look at the column and see where the yellow pointers are. From here it should Put letters in alphabetical order starting with A, ( once it hits Z it should go to AA, AB , just lik excel columns are named after Z ).

SO where ever the yellow box is , it should have a new letter in alphabetical order, everything below the yellow box till a new box will be that same letter.

MY example tab of the column finished should explain what i need and help clear any problems i presented here.

Create A List Of Unique Names From A List Of Multiple Names
I have a database output file where one of the columns contains managers names, often more than once. I want to apply an autofilter on manager name and then copy the result to another sheet or sheets. My criteria for the autofilter is a variable pointing to a list of names that at present I maintain by hand; a for-each-next loop then cycles through the names.

What I would like to do, before running the autofilter code, is to create the list of names via code. This would then automatically pickup names that are missing.

The code I have so far is below:

Public Sub find_managers()
Dim managers1 As Range
Dim names1 As Range
Dim n1 As Variant
Dim n2 As Variant

In my mind it should check the names in the unique list against the imported list and add any missing names.

Creating New Worksheets From A List Of Names
debugging issues without changing the code dramatically. I think I've basically "got it" but there are a few lines that I think are problematic. I've written notes to highlight my thinking.

Let me give a basic discription of what I'm trying to do: This file lists where a company has offices. I'm want my subroutine to 1) Sort the cities in alphabetical order (this occurs at the end of the code), 2) for each of the cities listed in "AllCities" worksheet, check whether there is a additional corresponding worksheet of the same city name, and if there isn't one, the subroutine would automatically add it, and 3) delete any worksheet of a city name that is NOT found in the listings found in the "AllCities" worksheet.

Macro To Set The Order In Which Worksheets Should Be Printed (order Is Changing Daily)
I looked at threads realted to printing but wasn ot able to find something similar to what I need. So here is my problem:

I have a file with more than 100 worksheets (each sheet contains the invoice for one store). I would like to create a macro that would enable me to determine the order in which worksheets would be printed. How to do it?

Idea #1: the printing order would be based on the value in cell L1 that would contain the route number for each store. Stores belonging to the same delivery route will have the same value in L1. So, the macro should first print all sheets with 1 in cell L1, then print all sheets with 2 in cell L1 and so on...

Idea #2: Creating a separate data sheet with the list of all stores and their corresponding route number. Let's say info is contained in range A1:B150, where Column A contains the name of the stores and column B contains the route numbers. The macro then should look at that list to determine the printing order of the subsequent worksheets (the name of the store in column A would be the same as the name of the worksheet corresponding to that store).

Idea #3: sorting my 150 worksheets manually. It does not solve my problem fully, though, because stores do not always belong to the same route. So the manual sorting should be carried out daily and would not save time at all.

Worksheets, One With "supplier Names", "order Numbers" And "delay In Days" As Columns
I have two worksheets, one with "supplier names", "order numbers" and "delay in days" as columns. The other one with "supplier names" and "average delays" as columns.

It is the column "average delays" that I have issues with, I need Excel to search the "supplier names" column in the "delays" sheet and identify every specific supplier name, connect the delay in days for that order and calculate the average delay in the right cell of the column "average delays" in the sheet "delay statistics".

I have tried the help files and to search this forum but I have found nothing. I have also with my knowledge tried a few different ways using the IF function but nothing so far.

This is something I started doing but it is of course far away from any truth.

=IF(;Delays!B1:B200="Greber")..............

This is the "delays" sheet where I want to find my info. Nothing in the delay column stands for "no delay"...Kinda obvious but you know... So even the "nothing" needs to be included in the calculation..

List All Sheets Names From Multiple Workbooks & Copy Transpose Certain Columns
this may or may not be easy for some of you but its driving me nuts. Here's what I need to do.

1.Create a new workbook

2.Cycle through multiple workbooks and all worksheets within each workbook (all in the same folder). All workbooks will have the same structure.

3.Take the worksheet names and put them in rows

4.Take the data from the first column (column A) from the first worksheet of the first workbook and put them across the top (i.e. transpose the data). The first column will be the same in all workbooks so it doesn't matter where I get it from.

5.Copy the data from column E from each worksheet and paste them in rows in the new workbook (again transpose) corresponding to each worksheet.

6. Perform simple mathematical calculations at the end of each row.

I expect to have approximately 26 workbooks with a total of 7000 worksheets. In the target workbook (i.e. the new one), I expect there to be 7000 rows (corresponding to the 7000 worksheets) and about 260 columns.

The only reason I need to transpose stuff is because Excel 2007 doesn't have 7000 columns.

Here's an example of what it would look like.
Example worksheet (Input)-
Worksheet ABC
Col A Col E
1/1/2004 \$25
1/8/2004 \$30
1/15/2004 \$15

Imagine another worksheet called LMN with the same ColA but different values in Col E.

Output workbook
ColA Columns B Column C Column D
Sheet 1/1/2004 1/8/ 2004 1/15/2004
ABC \$25 \$30 \$15
LMN \$xxx \$yyy \$zzz

List Same Cell From Multiple Worksheets
I am wanting to make a table that shows values from multiple sheets. The individual sheets are essentially a template, and I would like to be able to grab a value from the same cell in different sheets and make a table. Can I do it without having to get each value individually? Perhaps put most clearly, I would like to have a table that shows the value at 'C1' in each sheet without having to manually select 'C1' from each sheet.

Creating List Of Data From Multiple Worksheets
I am trying to create a list of residents, unit types, and unit numbers. I have 3 problems with the following code.

1) The code ignores sheets that have no value in the specified cell. I need it to return a blank cell for those in order to keep the data in each column matched with the sheet it came from.

2) The code includes data from hidden sheets. I only want to list data from unhidden sheets. And more specifically, I want to omit data from unhidden sheets that have their tab colored black.

3) The code includes data from the sheet named "Totals" which I thought I was telling it to ignore.

Insert Multiple Worksheets & Name From Cell List
I am trying to automatically insert multiple (100) worksheets using VBA. The names I need each worksheet to be named are in a list in a separate worksheet in the same workbook. I found this site: http://www.mindspring.com/%7Etflynn/excelvba3.html and have been trying to adapt the following

Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim newSheetName As String
newSheetName = Sheets(1).Range("A2") ' Substitute your range here
For Each ws In Worksheets
If ws.Name = newSheetName Or newSheetName = "" Or IsNumeric(newSheetName) Then
MsgBox "Sheet already exists or name is invalid", vbInformation
Exit Sub
End If
Next
With ActiveSheet
.Move after:=Worksheets(Worksheets.Count)
.Name = newSheetName
End With
End Sub

I am having difficulty iterating the code from cell A2 to A102.

Multi Select List Box To Open Multiple Worksheets
I have this workbook with 22 sheets and 21 are hidden. On the one open sheet there is a button that opens a userform with a listbox. I have radio buttons on the side to control whether the list box allows single selection, multiple selection, and extended selection. I want to change extended to open all sheets.

Anyway, I have the list box populated but I can't figure out how to code opening single sheets, multiple sheets, or all sheets depending on the radio button selected when the OK button is pressed. I know the listbox depends on the selected property but I am stuck. Here is the code I had but it is a mess. I am still new to VBA.

Private Sub OKButton_Click()
Dim Msg As String
Dim i As Integer
Dim UserSheet As Object
If ListBox1.ListIndex = -1 Then
Msg = "Please select a sheet."
Else
Msg = ""
For i = 0 To ListBox1.ListCount - 1
If ListBox1.Selected(i) Then
For Each i In ListBox1..........................

Looking Names In A List With Names Written Differently And With Duplicates
I am using Excel 2003 and Windows XP.

I have been given a list of my firm’s target clients (in excel) and an opportunities report (exported into excel) from our CRM system, which lists all the opportunities (i.e. opportunities to sell/provide products/services) that have been created for each client. Some of the column headings in the opportunities report are as follows:

Client; Opportunity ID; Opportunity Name; Opportunity Description; Created by; Date Created etc.

What I need to do is lookup each client, from the target clients listing, in the opportunities report to see whether an opportunity has been created; and if so, return the row of values (i.e. the Opportunity ID; Opportunity Name; Opportunity Description; Created by; Date Created) for that client. The result will be placed next to the name of the client in the target client worksheet.

I have a couple of problems. Initially I tried to use the VLOOKUP function to lookup the client name in the opportunities report and return the Opportunity ID (I then planned to use the same formula to return values from the other columns); however, as the client names in the target client listing were not always written the same way as they were in the opportunities report, the formula often returned #N/A. The formula I used was

=VLOOKUP(A8,'Opportunities Report'!A2:F51,2,FALSE)

So for example, the first client that I was looking up was written as “ABC Ltd” but in the opportunities report it was written as “ABC Limited”.

My second problem was that for some clients, there were multiple opportunities listed in the opportunities report. Where this was the case, there was a separate row (repeating the client name in the first column) for each opportunity created. I think that was messing up my VLOOKUP formula as well.

Is there a way to look up the client name, from the target client listing, in the opportunities report even if it’s slightly different and return the row of values for each opportunity created for that client on a separate row?

Replace Bad Names From A List Of Good Names
create a script that will replace the names in column A on sheet1 from a Master sheet in the same workbook?

The problem is that different users are entering data on sheet1 col A in different ways example someone may enter Johnc or John C Or John What I want is for something to run down col A on sheet1 and look for the like name on the master sheet if the name matches then do nothing but if the name is like another name on the master sheet then replace the name if they are almost alike.

List Teams In Rank Order From List
How do I list selected data by order of appearance in a list?

Suppose I have a named range somewhere in my workbook called "TeamsRanked".

This range contains hundreds of names. The data associated with each of these names appears in a table in the workbook in rank order. The teams are ranked in descending order according to points scored. This means that the ROW() for the HIGHER-Ranked teams will be LOWER than the ROW() for the LOWER-Ranked teams. Also, this named range is constantly being resorted as updated data is introduced.

Now...Suppose I want to monitor just a few of the names??

For example: Cells A1:A3 on a separate worksheet contain the names of the teams I want to monitor.

What formula do I need in Cell A5 to return the HIGHEST ranked of the teams in Cells A1:A3??
...in Cell A6, to return the next highest ranked.
...in Cell A7, to return the LOWEST ranked.

I tried some IF(ROW(MATCH...)) ---"is less than" ---IF(ROW(MATCH...)) formulas...and I keep getting INVALIDs in my formula palette.

Scan Worksheets In Reverse Order?
I have some code that scans each worksheet in a workbook for sheetnames beginning with 'Model'... if the worksheet name matches, it prints only the used pages on that sheet (see code below).

Dim Ws As Worksheet
For Each Ws In Worksheets
If Left(Ws.Name, 5) = "Model" Then
If Ws.Range("A46").Value = "Page 1-1" Then
Ws.PrintOut From:=1, To:=1
ElseIf Ws.Range("A46").Value = "Page 1-2" Then
Ws.PrintOut From:=1, To:=2
End If
End If
Next Ws

This code works... but I would like it to scan the workbook in reverse order...
ie. print from the last matching worksheet first.

Sort Worksheets By Numerical Order
I am trying to sort worksheets in excel by numerical order. I have renamed each worksheet with a different zipcode that corresponds to data on that sheet.

I believe there might be two ways to do this,
1) by sorting numerically the worksheet names.
2) by perhaps referencing a cell on each worksheet (i.e. the zipcode) and sorting it that way.

Lookup Multiple Same Value And Return Multiple Corresponding Value In Ascending Order
I have a problem with the formula that look up multiple records with the same values and return multiple corresponding values in ascending order. I am using Excel 2003 and it is a bit complicated to explain so I have attached a sample spreadsheet to show what I mean.

What I want was after I have sorted the occurrence value in column E based on column B and I want to correspond the Rank in column D based on column A in ascending order for the same occurrence value in column E.

Eg: There is two occurrences for number 1 at E3 and E4, and three occurrences for number 2 at E5, E6 and E7 in column E. Then the Rank for the first occurrence for number 1 in D3 should be ranking 6 and the second occurrence for number 1 in D4 should be ranking 7, so the Rank for the first occurrence for number 2 in D5 should be ranking 3, D6 should be ranking 4 and D7 should be ranking 9 based on column A and B, etc.

Search Multiple Worksheets Against List Of Non-Exact Search Criteria?
I have a workbook with many many sheets in it. The first sheet contains a single column with about 10,000 different values. I'd like to use each of these as search criteria against ALL data in the other sheets (of which there are a good 50 or so). If matches are found (they don't have to be exact case), then I'd like two things to happen:

1. The rows containing the matched search criteria in the first sheet are highlighted.

2. In the cells adjacent to the search criteria in the first sheet, hyperlinks to the matched data are created and named after the sheet upon which this matched data appears.

I've attached a sample file to this post with ideal sample 'answers' to queries made of the first 2 terms.

Copying A List Of Data To List Of Range Names
I do not have any code for this as I am unsure if it is possible. I have a list of range names in a column (A) that refer to different sheets and in an adjacent column (B) I have a list of data. Is it possible to write VBA code that will allow me to copy each value in column B to the corresponding cell in the workbook that relates to the range name in column A.

Now the list is, if the quantity column for the "Productx" is >=1 than whole row will add to the "Order", if not skip it, i have the formula in the "Order" block A2.

i will have about 6-7 list for "product", now in my file is only 2 Product list (Product1, Product2) and now i want to add more for this, like Product3, Product4....... so i think i need to add program for this and also some expert user also tell me need to add VBA for this.

VLOOKUP Order List
suppose when i add 1 in the quantity, it will appear on the "Order for EMS" and "Order for FEDEX" but now they show #NAME?, what's wrong, it's not happen before, why?

Change The Order In List
i have a excel database made up of about 5000, points of interest every thing from nightclubs, pubs police stations, restaurants, etc all in alphabetical order A TO Z

POINT NAME ADDRESS POSTCODE TYPE DETAILS ONEWAY ST
odeon cinema leicester sq WC2 cinema lve on left no

COLUMN G IMFOMATION
lve cinema on left this is next to the raddison hotel

what i would like to do is change the order so that every thing is listed in post code order W1 W2 W3 W4 EC1 EC2 EC3 EC4 WC1 WC2 etc so that i can search in pacific post code

Change The Order Of My Name List
I have a list of names and they are in the following format :

A1 B1 C1
A2 B2 C2

A4 B4 C4
A5 B5 C5

How can i list them in the following order ?

A1
B1
C1
A2
B2
C2
A3
B3
C3

This is quite a long list containing about 5000 names in total.

Reverse Order Of List
I have a question on paste special. Is there a way to paste special reverse the order of numbers?

I have data going in reverse chronilogical order vertically on my spreadsheet. So for example,

3/1/07 12.3 ( Cell A1)
2/1/07 13.2 (Cell A2)
1/1/07 14.5 (Cell A3)
12/1/06 16.7 (Cell A4)

I want to now paste this data vertically (so transpose which there is a handy check off box for) BUT ALSO to Reverse the data so vertically it now reads :

16.7 (in cell A1 for ex) 14.5 (In cell B1 for ex) 13.2 (In cell C1) 12.3 (In cell D1)

Is there a way to paste special reverse the order of numbers?

List In Order Of Total
I have a list of 20 random numbers in Column A, what I need is a list to be compiled in Column B showing the highest as 1 and lowest as 20.

A B
2345 4
123 5
3568 3
9732 1
4325 2

This totals change hourly. Dont know if this requires a macro or just a formula in Column B

Separating Weeks In An Order List
I order sushi at work for the office, and I want to automate the reporting side of it

this is what the information looks like (bad formatting, sorry) (the notes column is also void currently)

date name order # decscript Price Paid? Notes 1/01/2009 John Smith 10 blah 10 5 Y

Jane Smith 12 blah 12 7 Y

Adam Black 1 blah 1 4 Y

Charles Dee 1 blah 1 4 Y
15/01/2009 John Smith 10 blah 10 5 Y

Jane Smith 12 blah 12 7 Y

Adam Black 1 blah 1 4 Y

Charles Dee 1 blah 1 4 Y

Handel Fee 6 blah 6 8 Y

Gretal Goo 7 blah 7 6 Y
1/02/2009 Adam Black 1 blah 1 4 Y

Charles Dee 1 blah 1 4 Y

Gretal Goo 9 blah 9 7 Y

What I enter is the 1) person's name 2) their order # and 3) wether they have paid (Y/N).
The proper version has a vlookup to fill in the description and price.

What I want to do (but don't know how) is to automatically count the number of orders each week, and the value of each week's orders.

Well, actually I can do the count orders/sum value manually - more specifically I can't work out how to automatically seperate each week. The main problem being there's always an unknown and variable number of orders per week.

One solution is to have a fixed number of orders per week which _sort of_ works, but is clunky and inelegant. Plus the names don't autocomplete then as it has blank spaces.

List Names, InputBox, Check If Name Is On The List
I have an excel sheet with 30 names in column A and I'm asked to do the following:
Write a procedure – a sub – that uses an input box to ask for a name. The procedure should then scan through the names in the list to search for the name and make a message box to state “X is not in the group” or “X is in the group”, where X is the name from the input box. HINT: You can make a variable “found” that starts with the value 0 and gets the value 1 if the name is found in the list.

Run Code On Worksheets With Certain Tab Names
My Thread title should have read covert code TO run on all worksheets with same word in Name. I have had a look at some other pieces of code in this forum but they are quite the same as I want to do....I have tried a few things but each time I get an error ...so for sure I am not modifying the code quite right, I ahve been missing something for what I now want it to do. So I wonder if someone could Please review these two pieces of code...they of course are both for running on just one worksheet in a wookbook.

I would like them both be able to run, still as tow separete pieces of code as they are, on all and only worksheets that have in their worksheet name a key word in this case the word "Region" and that those worksheets all in a single workbook but the workbook does have other worksheets in it I dont want the code to run one on - but those worksheets do not have in their worksheet name the word "Region".

Material Order List: Reduce Waste
I am reposting this because I do not think I did a very good job explaining what I am trying to do.

I am at a total loss on how (if it is even possible) of how to do this. So what I have done is tryed to break down each step. If someone could even get me started in the right direction many of the steps are redundant and I could work on that part myself.

I am attempt to create system to match parts that are alike in a single project, so I can create a material ordering list. This is just one step in the process (the hardest one) I will take the returned data and use it further in the process to create the actual material list. I have 2 worksheet of Data "PartsNeeded" and "PartsAvailable" with a 3rd sheet "PartsFilled" as my report Sheet.

Attach is the sample data along with a "notes tab"

Data Validation From 2 List And In Alpha Order
The user will be pasting a list of names in Column C and a list of Names in Column F I then want in Cell M1 for example a List box with all those names in from the 2 columns in alpha order.

I can create a hidden column that has the full list of names from both column and have a data validation drop down from that but cant think how to get it into alpha order in that drop down box without having a macro they would have to run 1st to sort it which i dont really want to do. is there a way if ranking a list of names in alpha order as then i could do then do a look up int he correct ranking order and use that list

I need to create a macro that will create a mailing list from about 300 spread sheets in the same workbook. (I am proud of myself, I found a macro that helped me bring all 300 worksheets in to one workbook).

All worksheets are template style if B3 is company name in one worksheet it it the same on all worksheets. I have 15 cells I need to bring from each spread sheet into a master mailing list.

The big problem is, I only have the next 18 hours to do this and it is taking way too long to do it one at a time.

Cross Referencing Names On Different Worksheets
I have three different sheets, each with a column of names, titled "list1, list2, list3." I also have a fourth list of names on a sheet titled "masterlist." I am wondering if there is any way I could cross check the three lists against the master list to see if any names appear on the master list but do not appear on any of the three lists. Is there any way I can cross reference the master list with each of these lists?

Changing File Names Within Worksheets
my formula is as follows: =(VLOOKUP(A7,'[Monthly AR Analysis - Feb09.xls]AR - Current'!\$A\$1:\$I\$153,8,FALSE)). I will be using this for formula on about 15 different worksheets ... my issue is the file name changes every month and currently I have to go in and do a find and replace, I would like to have one main page where I could change the file name month and it will change all the rest.

ie: Monthly AR Analysis - Feb09.xls next month changes to Monthly AR Analysis - Mar09.xls .... So basically each month I want it to pick up the new file that has been saved with the new name. So what I would want is to be able to have a cell that I could change the Feb09 to Mar09 and then it would do the same to all the worksheets. I attempted to use CONCATENATE to change file name and it worked but will not work within the Vlookup.
