Locate Files Of Predefined Extension, In Predefined Location & List In Spreadsheet

Oct 22, 2008

I require a bit of code that locates where the excel file is stored - it then searches that directory folder for all file names. Any file names with an extension *.hm for example are listed in column A, while their relevant 'Dates of last Modification' are listed in Column B.

Every time the spreadsheet opens it should ask the user if he/she requires a re-search of this directory and update of any file names accordingly. NB: if a file name is deleted from the directory, the file name should remain in the spreadsheet.

Relating List Of Random Numbers To A List Of Names To Create Rota

Nov 21, 2013

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).

Generating Random Numbers Or Set Of Numbers Which Add Up To Certain Number?

Random Number Between Two Numbers VBA

Jan 3, 2014

I have build a system that needs a lot of random numbers generated to work.

I have used what I thought would work to generate me these numbers like this example:

VB:
Lastrow = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("RPlay").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
RPlayerNum = Int((Lastrow - 2 + 1) * Rnd + 2)

This would generate a random number into RPlayerNum variable, based on the list in sheet RPlay, missing off row 1 as the header.

However we have noticed a massive flaw in this code.... It works as long as the excel file is open, each time run it gives a different random number. However if you close the excel file and open it, then run it, it ALWAYS gives the same number first run, every time.

Generate Random Numbers From A Frequency List

Jun 21, 2007

I have a frequency list (frequency per year) resulted from previous calculation. What I want is to generate random number as many as the frequency in the specified year, so that every year I will get the same amount of random numbers as the frequency. It is kind of the opposite of FREQUENCY function (but with random numbers involved). I need to use the result for further calculation.

How To Come Out With Random Number From A Field That Have Text And Numbers

Nov 7, 2013

I need excluding text from a cell and come out with a random number up to 3 numbers. Please see the attached image;

If you notice in column D there is text and a number that starts with a decimal, for example on the first row is .437 the next row is .215 next row is .63 etc... Is there a way to come out with a random number mixing it up to 3 digits and output those number on column "E"? Im only interested in filtering and coming out with the random number i mentioned .437 .215 .63 etc... not the +/-.010in.

There is no right or wrong number, i just need to come out with random number using up to 3 numbers up.

Maybe for .437 three numbers up could be .440 for the next row .215 maybe a number up .216..etc..

Hope there is a way to do this, my excel file is too long to type a number manually.

Selection.Value = MyValue

Limit On Number Of Random Numbers In Prob() Function

Mar 23, 2009

I'm using the prob() function, and it works for no more than 61 random numbers. Does anyone know of a limit on the number of random numbers used in the function, and whether it's possible to use more numbers in the function? My formula is:

=PROB(\$C\$11:\$C\$71,\$L\$11:\$L\$71,G11,H11)

Generating Random Number List

Oct 20, 2009

I have a spreadsheet of 1000+ companies and I want to take a random sampling of 100 of them. I would assume this could be accomplished by auto-filling a numerical value to each line of data (which I did), then scrambling only the column with the numbers (which I can't figure out), and then selecting the entire text and resorting it to put the numbers back in order and then just work with the first 100 rows (which I can do, if I knew how to make the numbers random).

Formula To Return Random Number From A List And Associated Name

Feb 12, 2009

My objective is to take two different random counts of numbers written in column b, ranging from B9:B66. However I want to highlight the specific fields listed in the example below, and pull random numbers from those selected fields only. Then I want to pull another set of random numbers in the same column B9:B66, however using a different specific set of fields within column B; as shown in the second random formula string. Use the Press 9 feature to randomly select the two different numbers. What this attempt is trying accommplish is selecting one boy, one girl who have assigned numbers adjacent to their names(name field populated in column c).
What am I doing in correctly?

HTML Formula written to B70
=INDEX(B9:B66,RANDBETWEEN(1,COUNTA(B9,B13,B15,B16,B17,B20,B21,B23,B25,B31,B33,B34,B35,B37,B38,B39,B41,B42,B44,B45,B47,B50,B51,B52)),1)

Average Of Numbers From List Based On Multiple IF-OR Criteria

Feb 11, 2014

Here is my formula that does not return accurate results:

=IFERROR(SUM(SUMIFS(Tenure!\$H:\$H,Tenure!\$E:\$E,{"=1100","=1090"},Tenure!\$C:\$C,{"=12","=14","=13"},Tenure!\$G:\$G,"=1/1/2013",""})/SUM(COUNTIFS(Tenure!\$E:\$E,{"=1100","=1090"},Tenure!\$C:\$C,{"=12","=14","=13"},Tenure!\$G:\$G,"=1/1/2013",""}))),0)

I need to average column H from the sheet Tenure IF column E is 1100 or 1090 (formatted as text) and IF column C is equal to 12, 13, or 14 and IF column G is less than or equal to a date and column I if greater than or equal to a date OR if this column is blank.

I tried AVERAGEIFS, the above route and many others. For whatever reason, I have been unsuccessful, but close many times.

VBA - Run Macro From Predefined List Of Times?

Jun 25, 2014

I've seen a lot of traffic around running macro's on a clock at regular intervals. But what if I want to run a Macro (Macro1) at 8:55, 9:55, 11:55, 12:55, 13:55, 16:55 and another Macro (Macro2) at the top of each of those hours? The string of times is not consecutive, so I have built a table to define the release times. At each of these times I need to run a macros, and I'm not sure where to begin.

Generating Average From Group Of Numbers In List That Match Two Criteria?

Jan 29, 2013

So we had a month long, company paid (woohoo!) "weight watchers" challenge. On 1 worksheet ("Stats"), I have the Name of every Employee (A Column), then their Start Weight (B Column), End Weight (C Column), Department (D Column) and finally Location (E Column).

I know how sensative some people can be about their weight, so I locked the page and created another worksheet named "UI", which will display the "Average End Weight" for each department. So Human Resources would be the department in cell A2 on the UI sheet, with City 1 being the Column Header in cell B1. There are 8 cities (offices) and 23 departments.

So, for cell B2, I want to scan through the "Stats" worksheet and locate all of the cells in the department and location columns that read "Human Resources" and "City 1" respectively. Then grab the "End Weight" for every row that meets these 2 criteria, add them up, and divide by the number of "End Weights" that were grabbed.

My solution would be to make a separate column for each department (and then each city, so essentially 8 columns to represent all the cities for each department), use a nested (maybe 4) IF statements to then list only the end weight if that particular row meets the criteria, then at the bottom of each separate column, add all the shown numbers up and divide, then draw the information from THAT number into the "Average" cell on the UI worksheet. But it isn't very dynamic and if i want to use this sheet next year, there will be more employee info to be added and it would be a mess..further more, it would be...what...23 Departments x 8 Cities x 155 employees = ~28,500 added cells.

Generate Random Numbers In Random Cells

Sep 18, 2009

I am working on a Random Cycle Count Generator that provides random SKU#s based on 3 separate columns of SKU listings. The user clicks a button to generate the SKU#s to cycle count for that day. What I would like to see is a date stamp in the columns next(B,D,F) to the referenced SKU listing(A,C,E) based on which SKU#s are generated. This will let me see the last date that the SKU was generated. I would also like it to automatically save after generating.

Children Name Randomly Selecting From Predefined List

Extracting Strings From A Column Of Data That Match A Predefined List

Jun 15, 2009

I sent this before but the formula I was given wasn't correct (as you will see from the file). In Column B of the second sheet (Data) of the attached file, I want to bring back the relevant name form the first sheet (List), which involves searching through the long descriptions from column A on the Data sheet for the name on the List sheet.

Code To Assign Predefined Number In Separate Worksheet

Apr 27, 2009

Excel 2003: I need code that, when an "x" is entered in a cell in the "Activity" worksheet to assign a temporary unit #, it will look for the next available Temporary Unit # in the "Assign" worksheet. Then mark that unit # as "assigned" (by placing an "X" in the column next to it) and copy it to a cell in the "Activity" sheet.

I will be doing the same thing with assigning different types of PO numbers. I figure if I have the code for the Unit #, I can use the same logic for the other assignments, with some modifications, of course.

I've attached a sample workbook.

If I am not considering the most effective way to accomplish what I am trying to do here, I have no ego at all about someone suggesting a better solution.

Average Column Of Cells But Ignore Errors And Return Average Of Numbers That Are There

Jun 14, 2013

E11 through E24 contains numbers and a few errors (#N/A) that need to persist (the errors need to show).

E10 needs to show the average of the numbers that are in E11 through E24, and just ignore the errors.

I have many columns like that - where the errors need to show and I need to show an average of the number/values that do appear, ignoring the errors.

Trying To Write A List Of Numbers In A Cell, Keeps Converting It To A Long Number

Jan 12, 2010

I'm doing the website for my company and things have to be entered into the site via spreadsheets. I have a list of numbers

e.g. 3652, 2845, 50925, 4809, 18392

that need to have the spaces removed in order for them to work.

e.g. 3652,2845,50925,4809,18392

There are over 500 cells with multiple numbers in each, so I don't want to do it one at a time, and rightly so, because Excel keeps changing the format and giving me something like

3.6*10^30 and loses all my commas.

Is there an easier way?

I am looking for a way to create a random order of numbers in a given range. For example, A1:a100 to be populated with a random number between 1 and 100, but not to duplicate, using every possible number within that range. I use the RANDBETWEEN function to generate the numbers, but I cannot prvent them from duplicating.
