List Names, InputBox, Check If Name Is On The List
Sep 7, 2009
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.
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.
I need to compare two lists of client names. One list has 59k names to be compared to second list of 1000 names. The list of 59k are listed in column D and the other list is in Column E. I tried conditional formatting but unfortunately some of the names are slightly different I.e. fair point communications vs fair point communications inc. I was trying to put in v lookup with a trim function but it didn't seem to be working.
I'm trying to create a staff rota which will populate a rota randomly when prompted - I have been trying to find some way of connecting the random lists and the staff names, though this has proved difficult (to say the least!). How best to proceed? I'm also fully aware of the possibility that my present design will also double book people (place then on reception and telephone duty simultaneously).
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.
I am looking for a Macro that would randomly select 20 items from my inventory list for performing spot checks. Column F of Active Coil Log tab is where the data would need to pull from, however I would like all data in the row to go along with it. I've explored the RAND functions, but they don't seem to be the right fit .
Im still pretty new toi VBA and im struggling with pulling data from another worksheet and placing it into a list. Below is the code currently I think I have identified were its not working but not sure what to do. the code should essentially do the following
on opening the workbook check CS PS data worksheet find the names of people within the sheet, These start at row six and the step between each is 82 it then should input these names one after another in the following range Range("AO3:AO43") one name per cell until the end of the dat,a it seems to run but only inputs the first name in the first cell even thought it picks up each name in the myformula piece
Within the myformula there is a concatenate piece to flip the names to opposite way round I think this is where is not working possibly something to do with the separators? each name is in the format surname, firstname it should flip it so it shows first name [space] last name
provide ive commented out the piece I think is the issue
Sub CSupdate_() With Application .Calculation = xlManual .ScreenUpdating = False
I have a long customer listing, names 5 to 36 characters and several with their location in the name as well as a few common duplicate names. I am trying to produce sheet where the customers name once selected opens in the customers spreadsheet and data can be added/amended for sales etc.The lists are not in alphabetical order as when created a customer number is automatically allocated. My aim is just to type in the first letter of the name and the dropdown appears the customer is selected and their card appears. I have tried data validation, lookup, vlookup, Dropdown and Match/find. they only return the first record found and no sign of any others. Find returned all instances of the letter appearing in every name.
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
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?
I'm trying to sort out a list of names from a website that publishes names in the following format:
DOE John VAN GOGH Vincent DA VINCI Leonardo NADAL PARERA Rafael JIMENEZ RODRIGUEZ Miguel Angel
What I'd like to do is get the names in the following format
John Doe Vincent Van Gogh Leonardo Da Vinci Rafael Nadal Parera Miguel Angel Jimenez Rodriguez
Basically all the last names - which are all capitalized - would be moved to the end of the text string. Of course any leading spaces should be removed and I guess using the Proper() function, all capitalized words could be capitalized in a standard way.
I found the following function, here: [URL] ...
but what it does is just take the capitalized words and separate them into a separate cell, which is not all of what I want.
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.
I need to create a function that selects 4 names randomly from a list of 15 names and displays the 4 randomly selected names in the one cell. Also, you cannot repeat the same name in that cell, (i.e. bob cannot be selected twice in his group of four)
With the following list on Sheet1, on Sheet2 I want list only the Names that don't have a value next to them:
Aaron Abigail 6 Alexander Alina 24 Allan Andrew 5 Ann
That sounds so easy to explain, but I am baffled as to how you can do it with a standard if function without getting the following type of result (this list could be up to 200 names - I only want ones that don't have a populated field next to them):
Aaron True Abigail Alexander True Alina Allan True Ann
Can this be done with a groovy IF and INDEX formula, or is VBA (of which I have very limited skills) the only way to go?
I would like to count the number of time a name occurs in a range. I tried using a simple pivot table but it did not work because I may not always use all of the names from the list. Also I would like to avoid using the count if formula if possible. Is there a way to use a pivot table to do this?
I have a few names in the range A2:A11 and the exercise asks: Fill in the cell B19 with a temporary software name. Using the appropriate function, compose such name as follow: take the first letter from the 1st, 2nd, 3rd names of the list; take the third letter from the 4th, 5th, 6th names of the list; take the last letter from the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th names of the list. Moreover, the software name must be in capital letters.
I created a validation list that includes the names "Mary, Joe, Michael, and David"
When I plug in the name "Mary" I want to pick out her qualifications from a list I have created on a separate worksheet.
Passport Mary Joe David
Lunch Mary Joe Michael
Car Joe Michael David
I want Excel to have the ability to find the name "Mary" from those three lists and reply back to me with the headers of either Lunch, Car, and/or Passport based on the lists Mary appears in. I want this to change depending on the Employee Name and I pick and the lists they appear in.
I have a workbook with a collumn full of football championships. As you know there are hundreds of different championships names. And i have a collumn with all of them but some are repeated over and over because this collumn is connected with values of profit/loss in another collumn. For example: Blue Square North (Collumn A1) and in collumn B1 1.75; then Blue Square North (Collum A2) and 2.98 (Collumn B2), and over and over...
So what i need is a formula that retrieves all unique and different names in a range collumn and the puts all the dfferent names in a new collumn (lets say C). Because what i intend to do then is to use vlookup to search for the championships one by one (through collumn C) and count the ones with profit and them loss by the name of each one.
So what i need is a way to retrive a list of the unique names in A and get them in C.
Got a huge dataset with a list of non-repeating names. For example, among the dataset is about 1,500 names that dont repeat itself in a column. How can I isolate just that list of non-repeating names from that huge dataset?
In the Attendance Sheet (file attached), I have a list of all students. I like to add students who attend (with "X" marks) each subject onto Sheet "All Records). Date, time, location, instructor, subject to be added respectivley and in accumulate to the Sheet "All Records". I remember I did this before but I can't now.
