Locating Important Columns In A Table Of Raw Data - Setting Variables Using A Loop

Feb 22, 2012

I need to be able to locate some important columns in a table of raw data (the column locations are not fixed).

I would like to identify the locations (based on the heading values in Row 1) and store them as Public variables. The Match function works fine for this, however I'd like to make a simple loop to set these variables (opposed to repeating the function for each).

In the example below, I can't figure out how to reference "List1(Count)" as the name of the variable I'm trying to set.


Public Field1 As Long, Field2 As Long, Field3 As Long 'The column numbers will be stored here
Sub FindFields()
Dim List1(3), List2(3)
Dim Count As Long
'Public variables (declared above)

[Code] ......

So after running FindFields(), the Test1() macro should give "1 - 2 - 3" (for example) as the locations of the fields in Sheet1. But currently this doesn't work.

Extract Important Values And Display In Whitespace On The Right Of Table

Jul 10, 2014

I have a worksheet which is working nicely, but I want to extract a couple of the most important values and display them in the whitespace on the right of the table. Because of their importance I would like to do so in a larger font than is used in the rest of the workbook, but without increasing Row height to accomodate it. Essentially I'd like to do a center across selection, but vertically not horizontally but can't find a way to achieve this.

Locating A Value On A Table

May 14, 2009

I've got a table similar to the below (but with a few more columns & rows). I need 2 look at 2 cells one contains a $value (say $75,000) the other contains a code (say C). I need it to return the correct value - in this example 3.00%.

This is going to be too messy to use a vlookup, I'm sure there is something better. Is this where you use Match or Index ... both of which I don't understand how they work. Or something else ?

$ 1 $ 50,000 1.00%1.50%2.00%2.50%
$ 50,001 $ 100,000 2.00%2.50%3.00%3.50%
$ 100,001 $ 250,000 3.00%3.50%4.00%4.50%

$1 $50,000 1.00% 1.50% 2.00% 2.50%
$50,001 $100,000 2.00% 2.50% 3.00% 3.50%
$100,001 $250,000 3.00% 3.50% 4.00% 4.50%

VBA Setting Variables To Nothing Or Null

Mar 6, 2012

I've been looking at code a lot here and at the end I always see people ending their VBA code by setting the variables to nothing. Why is this done? Don't all the variables in the sub automatically get trashed when the sub ends?

So what would be the difference of me doing:

Sub emailUser(strSubject As String, strMessage As String)
'Allows you to email the user if an error occurs instead of giving a messagebox
'and stopping everything. This way if something can not be checked out, you know
'what happened and can redo it the next morning (or fix the error if need be)

Dim olApp As Object 'Outlook.Application
Dim Msg As Object 'Outlook.MailItem

[Code] .....


Sub emailUser(strSubject As String, strMessage As String)
'Allows you to email the user if an error occurs instead of giving a messagebox
'and stopping everything. This way if something can not be checked out, you know
'what happened and can redo it the next morning (or fix the error if need be)

Dim olApp As Object 'Outlook.Application

Setting Correct Variables?

Oct 24, 2013

I have put together the below macro to take data from an Excel spreadsheet and place in a word documents (using bookmarks.

What should happen is it should open up the correct word template depending on what data is in column E (Servicecode) and fill in the bookmarks with the data from excel.

It all works fine and goes through the loop and saves, inputting the correct data into the bookmarks but after looking at the saved templates and scrolling through using F8 the IF ELSE does not seem to work. It CALLS theBearSSR macro rather than the relevant macro e.g. word in E2 is Cele, the macro should call the CeleSSR macro (which opens the correct template).

I don't think i have declared my DIM Servicecode correctly... I can't seem to figure out how to make the IF ELSE condition look at the Servicecode and then go to the correct sub routine (the difference between them is the template that is opened).

HTML Code:
Sub Celebration()

Dim departuredate As String[code]......

Setting Up (Define Names) For 70 Columns Of Data

Sep 19, 2013

I need to create "Define Name" references for 70 columns of data so that I can establish Parent/Child relationships in a data validation list. Is there a quick way to do this or do I need to go through the same steps 70 times (i.e., once for each column)? My concern is that the current order of my columns might change too, and I don't want to have to recreate the "Define Names" every time it does.

Two Variable Data Table - Both Variables In Rows?

I'm aware that two variable data tables are usually done in an array with variables in the top row and leftmost column. However, as there are multiple outputs to the variations that I want to make it makes sense to have the variations in the two top rows.

Solution/altenative To Data Table Using >2 Variables

Feb 9, 2010

Is there a way to test out a formula using Excel that has more than 2 variables? (If only 2 variables, I would use a simple data table). The formula I am testing has 50X50X20 variables (and as a subset, each variable has 2500 lines of assumptions!). I don't need to see all the results, only the result that produces the highest result. For simplicity (if someone has an answer) let's assume 3 variables are A1, A2 and A3. Formula is in A4 and formula is A1+A2+A3. Assuming A1 can be 1 to 5 and A2 same , A3 same, the long hand calc is for me to run a data table using variables in A1 and A2 the fixing A3 (as 1)..note maximum result....then run data table again using variables in A1 and A2 and changing fixed value in A3 to the number 2...and so on and so on....in this simple example I know the max result would be 15, but much more difficult in my spreadsheet test.

Code To Generate Data Table Based On Variables

Aug 26, 2008

I was trying to use the VBA code to generate a data table:

Private Sub createDataTable(WS As Worksheet, initialRow As Integer, numCol As Integer, numRows As Integer)
Dim initialCell As Range 'specify the upper left cell
Dim RefCell As Range 'the reference cell on the caculator sheet

'activate source sheet
Set RefCell = ActiveSheet.Cells(2, 3)
Set initialCell = ActiveSheet.Cells(initialRow, 1)
initialCell.offset(numRows, numCol).Select
Selection.Table ColumnInput:=RefCell
'the calculation should be automatic, if not, then calculate
End Sub

and it kept giving me an input celll not valid error on this line: Selection.Table ColumnInput:=RefCell the thing is, I have defined RefCell as a range object, so it should be OK rite?

Copy Input Data To Output Table Based On Variables

Mar 20, 2008

For what I'd like to do, the attached workbook actually represents 3 worksheet. one input sheet and two output sheets (output1 and output2)

I plan to use command button " CommandButton1" on input sheet to start the calculations

Here's what I want to do after pressing the " CommandButton1" :

1. start with case 1 and find the value of Input A to Input J from input table using Vlookup and paste those values to respective palceholder for inputs in blue colour area above the input table for each input.

2.for empty cell in the input table paste 0 (zero)

3. after this will give results for case 1 inputs on sheets "output1" and "output2" on basis of formulas used for each output

4.then copy the results for case 1 inputs from sheet "output1" and "output2" and paste them on "input sheet " in Output table (its below Input Table) next to case1

5.Do this for all cases (in actual workbook there will be more than 100 cases)

Extracting Data Via Locating Row And Column Number

Apr 27, 2012

Data Range: A1:E6

Data Range: A1:E6

What I need is a formula (Not a VBA), is to reconcile both sheet2 and sheet1 ensure that the codes appearing for each position number in sheet1 gets updated based on the codes for each position number appearing in sheet2. So, for instance, the code for pos #34501A should be changed from 3200 to 9100 in sheet1.

The only issue with sheet2, though, is that the column number for position number could be different each time new data gets copied into sheet2 (thought the header information stays the same). I know that it can be done via Vlookup if the place of the column doesn't change each time, but I just

Locating Data From Closed Worksheets In Multiple Directories

Jan 28, 2010

I would like to create a macro which finds data from multiple worksheets and collates them in my Master Worksheet.

I am competent with a lot of functions with Excel, however I have never used Macro's before. I have a little bit of VB knowledge, but only the very basics. I will attempt to explain my situation as clearly as I can.

Please note in your response that I am not familiar with a lot of the programming jargon. I also do not know how to actually create (or is it record?) a macro.

Finally, before I dive into it, I would *prefer* not to have to add code to the closed worksheets, but I can do this if there is no other way!.......

Loop Through Data In Second Column Of Pivot Table

Sep 27, 2012

I have a pivot table with two columns: Code and Quantity. I want to loop through the Quantity column and hide all values = 0. I can do this easily by incorporating this into my code:

pt.PivotFields("Code").PivotFilters.Add _
Type:=xlValueDoesNotEqual, DataField:=pt.PivotFields("Sum of Quantity"), Value1:=0

However, I have a "(blank)" code in all pivot tables. I do this because occasionally there is no data to organize in a pivot table. Having a "(blank)" option will allow my code to work even when there's no data. Therefore, I want to keep blank visible at all times. The above code hides "(blank)", however.

The below code is what I've tried with no success.

Set pf = pt.PivotFields("code")
For Each pi In pf.PivotItems
If pi.PivotFields("Sum of Quantity").Value = 0 Then

Loop Sequential Variables

Sep 29, 2007

I have variables 1-6 like the following:

dDDDD1 = Format(d1, "dddd")
dDDDD2 = Format(d1, "dddd")

They correspond to a date from a cell and I just format one for "Monday" through "Saturday". In another module I'm opening a file that has worksheets named "Monday" through "Saturday" as well. I need to do the same thing to each of these sheets so I'm trying to setup a For/Next loop. I'm assuming you can't put a variable to a variable as I keep getting 'variable not defined' when I try to insert 'i'? Or am I just going about this all wrong?

For i = 1 To 6
Workbooks.Open ("J:AcctMgtITrepADIinf-v2-WE0922.xls")
Sheets(dDDDD & i).Unprotect Password:="hownowbrowncow"
Sheets(dDDDD1).Columns("C:E").Insert Shift:=xlToRight

Cumulative Sum In Loop Using Variables

Apr 6, 2008

I'm having difficulty with concatenation and the use of a string variable. On my attached spreadsheet I have a row called Must Fund Tasks. The binary variable in the cell is entered by a selection on a user form. If the value of the cell is "1" then that particular task must be funded. The code I developed forces solver to keep the binary value of 1 in that particular cell when looking for the optimal solution. This same row of binary variables is the row of values that I have solver change to find my optimal solution.

My problem is that I have another set of contraints based on mutually exclusive tasks. If there is a binary value of "1" in at least two of those cells then only one of the tasks may be funded and they are said to be mutually exclusive. In other words, if the user form indicated that tasks 1 and 5 were mutually exclusive then the binary values are Task1=1 and Task2=1 and the constraint would be Task1+Task2<=1. The code I've written looks for a value of 1 in the Mutually Exclusive row and if it finds one it adds the name of the corresponding "Must Fund" cell 4 rows above to a set called ExclusiveSet. ExclusiveSet is defined as a string and I'm having trouble with the concatenation, I keep geting a "+" out in front because of the intial loop when ExclusiveSet="" ( it returns "+$F$29+$H$29"). I'm also not sure if Range("CalcsStartcell").Offset(I + 15, 3).Formula = "=ExclusiveSet" is the appropriate way for me to return the value of the ExclusiveSet in the desired cell.

Sub constraint()
Dim p As Integer, CalcsStartcell As String, I As Integer, T As Integer
T = 7
I = 5
CalcsStartcell = "C16"

Reset Variables For Each Pass Through For Loop

Jun 27, 2014

I am having trouble defining a variable in a For loop. When I run the loop the first time everything seems to work fine, but when the loop goes back through the second time it carries its previous value with it. Here in lies the problem if the variable is supposed to be empty (not assigned a value). So, for example: 'Variable' in the code below may or may not be given a value depending on the conditions in the For i loop. If it is given a value then 'Variable' will still have that value on the next pass through the For j loop. And if none of the conditions are met for the If statement in the For i loop the second time through the For j loop, it should be an empty variable, but instead the code is reading it as having a value (from the previous pass through the For j loop).

[Code] .....

I have tried using:

[Code] .....

After the For j line, and instead of using:

[Code] ....

I tried using:

[Code] ....

and I've tried:

[Code] .....

I get an Object error with either line I use. I just want to be able to reset the variables each time through the For j loop so in the case of an empty variable, it doesn't try to calculate based on the previous value.

Nested Loop Not Working; Pulls Data From Multiple Files Into One Table

Aug 8, 2006

I've got this code that pulls data from multiple files into one table. the file name is in the top row, and each file's title, and two different sums display below that. Then it is supposed to loop through and display each task and the start and end date for that task within each file. After that the first loop brings it to the next column and file. The primary loop works fine, but the inner loop only seems to run once, as I get only the first result for each file. All I can figure is that maybe my row numbers aren't resetting like they're supposed to, or I'm completely overlooking something, which is likely, as VBA is by no means my forte.

Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
Dim sBook As String
On Error Resume Next
Application.EnableEvents = False
Col = 8
' Sets start column
sBook = Cells(2, Col)
' References file name
TaskRow = 6 ........................
