# Look At Column A Number In Descending Sequence In Column B

Mar 20, 2008
there may even be an excel formula answer to it rather than a macro. Coloumn A has a series of numbers, I want column B to show those numbers in what would be there Descending Sequence.

Thus

Col A

100

97

14

87

32

108

21

So with this routine you would then see

COL ACOL B10029731478743251081216 The above I suspect is not too difficult, however if two (or more) numbers are the same I want the sequence to reflect that thus COL A COL B100297 314 797 332 5108 121 6 and no... the data - Col A - cannot be sorted, it must stay in that sequence.

If possible I would want this done automatically when any Col A value changes (any unused cells would be 0 by the way). Oh, there will in fact be 25 cells in column A for this.

I am trying to fill a column with a number series starting with 1 whenever a value changes in the adjacent column. So for instance I am trying to do something like this :

87 1

87 2

87 3

88 1

88 2

88 3

88 4

89 1

89 2

i want to sort column D acsending, then column C descending. i want to do this using VBA because i cant just format the sheet because another vba macro paste the sheet thier which would rid the formatting. (i would do it myself everytime but it is for someone to make it easier for them and not make mistakes..i searched, just found a sum formula post)

I have a spreadsheet that I am using for budgeting and I want to be able to track my savings by logging data from one cell.

If cell A1 represented my savings I want that copied to B1 then the next day when A1 changes the new value would be copied to B2 and so on.

Any way that I have tried so far B1 always gets overwritten when the new value comes along.

I have a macro built that sorts my data by column in descending order depending on what column of information is selected from the drop down menu.

However I need the macro to sort column F in ascending order, and continue to sort the other colulmns in descending order when selected.

I can't get my macro to switch the sort from descending to ascending order for this one column. Looking to see if this is possible, and if so what macro formula I would use.

Here is what the macro i am currently using:

Sub ddSort_Click()

Dim iDdSortVal As Integer

Dim CurrSheet As String

Dim lFirstSectionRow As Long

Dim lLastSectionRow As Long

Dim strCol As String

Dim lRptHeaderRow As Long

Dim iRptMeasColumn As Integer

CurrSheet = ActiveSheet.Name

[Code] .......

I have a column (B) of randomly generated numbers 1-14, and am using this formula range to sort in descending order and return the relevant value from column (c).

=VLOOKUP(LARGE(B3:B20,1),B3:C20,2,) to =VLOOKUP(LARGE(B3:B20,14),B3:C20,2,)

Works great, except when a number is duplicated, (E.G. 14,13,13,12,11,10,10,9,8 etc). It then returns the first value from(C) repeated, and not the value from the second and subsequent duplicated reference numbers.

I was wondering whether it was possible to search for a sequence of numbers.

For example, if this is down a column:

A1: 5

A2: 4

A3: 5

A4: 6

A5: 9

Is it possible to have a find function to search for the sequence of numbers "4 + 5" and consequently highlight cells A2 and A3?

Creating a sequence in every column? It should look like this:

Original matrix (Top left cell is "A1"):

40 50 60

30 10 20

70 20 0

And I want to replace it with:

2 3 3

1 1 2

3 2 1

I need to create an ascending sequence of numbers in every column. First column contains: 40, 30, 70. That's why its ascending sequence is: 2, 1, 3.

Btw, I got N rows and M columns.

I have a set of data in cells sequencially in every 3rd column. I would like to create a new rows where the data I have in columns are placed into rows in accordance with its catogory.

So all EUR are in one row sequencially over the colums and the same for USD & GBP. This way I can create a graph.

I am stuck on what should be a simple formula. I have a spreadsheet that is sorted by "target" number in column A, basically 1,2,3,4. I am trying to create a formula that will increase the number in column B by one based on column A. So when the value in column A changes column B will reset to 1. Also I need this sequence number to be preceded by zeros up to 0999. So 1 would be 0001 and 895 would be 0895.

I am looking for a better way to determine if a column of values contains a sequence of consecutive matches. For example, column A contains single words. To determine if three consecutive cells contain the word "neuron", I enter in cell B3 the formula:

=IF(AND(A3="neuron",A3=A2,A3=A1),1,"")

And copy down. I then test column B to see if there are any non-blank cells.

If we want to change the word or the number of consecutive occurrences, I have to re-edit all the formulas in column B. I want to eliminate the helper column. I would like to put the word in B1, the number of consecutive occurrences in B2 and have a formula in B3 that will return either True or False.

I can do this with a UDF, but the user has rejected this option.

I'm trying to write a code that calculates 2nd column based on 3rd column's number or vice versa based on the condition set on the 1st column. Below, there are two procedures. "SimpleCalc" and "SimpleCalc2". I first wrote SimpleCalc2, but it isn't working, so I worked around the error by writing SimpleCalc, which selects a cell and moves around by offset. I personally find it hard to read and error prone as I develop more logic around it.

I'm trying to develop more function based on this code, so I need to make it neat and flexible. what I'm doing wrong in SimpleCalc2? Or do you have any suggestion to improve the code "SimpleCalc"? I'm using Excel 2003.

Sub SimpleCalc()

Dim SimpleMethodRng, SimpleMethod As String, i As Integer

ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Dashboard").Range("P5").Select

SimpleMethodRng = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Dashboard").Range("N5:P12")

For i = 1 To 8

SimpleMethod = SimpleMethodRng(i, 1).........

I have a spreadsheet with sales which I colour green when they are outstanding and red when they are despatched. I would like to automatically add a 1 in an adjoining column when the cell is green (eg outstanding) or zero when they are despatched so that it totals up the number of outstanding orders.

a b

172.95 (this column would be green)

024.00 (this cell would be red)

124.00 (this cell would be green)

132.25 (this cell would be green)

I work in a factory where we create different types of units daily. Below is a list of planned production on a specific date, say today's date. This is a very crude example, with information missing, and it is important to know that there are conditions attached such as:

The types are added randomly. The amount of types is much greater meaning that each type is on it's own page with breaks between. Everything produced on this date will have a URN (unique reference number) with its first 6 digits equating to yy-mm-dd and the last two being the position of the unit in the production sequence (first=01, second=02 etc).

I have gotten it to the point where if you enter them in sequence (Type A first for example) it will lookup to see the last assigned URN and taking the quantity into account issue the correct URNs.

The issues I have are when the URNs are less than "10", there is a problem displaying the 0 before the digit which disrupts the sequence. I can provide more clear examples if required.

I am creating a tool that is populating information off of another excel document and presenting the information in a different format then the data originally appears. Basically I am unsure how to create a formula, for example, in cell A1, that as I drag it down (A2, A3, etc) the column letter in the formula advances but the row number remains the same. In another words as the formula moves into cell A2, the "Sheet1!D3" changes to "Sheet1!E3", where as normally it would advance to "Sheet1!D4". I just started back up in excel, im sure this is way easier then I am making it seem but I have been unable to come up with a solution.

In my spreadsheet, I have a column for credit card totals (G) and cash totals (J)

I am adding the amounts for Food (Column B), Liquor (Column C), Wine (Column D), Beer (Column E), and Taxes ( Column F) for a total in Column G.

However, Column G is only for credit card totals and I want to do the same calculations for cash totals (Column J) using the same B through F Column without those numbers being plugged back into Column G, when I have no credit card total.

I have a spreadsheet with rows of data. I need a formula that will return the column number of the last column in a row where there is a value >0.

Let's say that cells A1:F1 contain values. Some have values of 0 while others have values >0. I need a formula in cell G1 that will tell me the column number of the last value >0.

A B C D E F

0 2 5 0 6 0

So the formula in G1 would return a value of 5, which corresponds to column E.

in column 2, something may have multiple numbers, but it must have something in column 1 that is equal to 0.

ex. everything above is ok except the 2-06 because it needs a cooresponding 0-06. I need some way to flag these so that i know when there is something in column 2 without a cooresponding 0 in column 1
