MATCH And Capturing The Error

Aug 6, 2009

In the help file for MATCH it says:

If MATCH is unsuccessful in finding a match, it returns the #N/A error value.

So I am trying in vain to capture the error, but can't see where I am going wrong.

VLookup To Pivot Table Using Match Function - Returns Error If Can't Find Match Value

Mar 11, 2014

I am having some trouble getting a formula to work. I am building a report that pulls figures from a pivot table in another workbook. I am using a vlookup with match function to get the column index to find the relevant data I want. Where I need to add two columns together I am using sum, with the vlookup & match formulas nested in them e.g.:

=SUM(VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!$C:$AQ,MATCH("FAID",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!$C$6:$AQ$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!$C:$AQ,MATCH("COMM",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!$C$6:$AQ$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!$C:$AQ,MATCH("BPCM",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!$C$6:$AQ$6,0),FALSE),VLOOKUP(F13,'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!$C:$AQ,MATCH("COMD",'[PIVOT 156.xlsx]PIVOT'!$C$6:$AQ$6,0),FALSE))

Where:
F13 = Employee number
Column C on the pivot 156 workbook is where the employee number is based.
The Match formula is then getting the column index from the column headings of the pivot table ie. "FAID"

This in itself works fine, as long as it finds a match in the column headings. This is where i get the error as in the above function "COMD" is not in the pivot table. However I need to keep it included as it may appear on a future pivot table. Is there a way of getting the sum function to complete even though later in the formula it can't complete the vlookup? So it will ignore it, or assume the value is zero if it can't find it? The formula probably needs to do this for all the vlookups as some headings may drop off in future pivot tables.

Looped Error Check Not Working: Error 1004 Is Generated When A Match Cannot Be Found In The Spreadsheet

Jul 2, 2006

the if stattement works perfectly and does exactly what i want except when it comes to the else part. if there is no error the statements are run perfectly but if there is an error (in this case the error is generated when a match cannot be found in the spreadsheet) the else statement doesnt kick in and post the msgbox.
the code just crashes. and returns an error 1004 on the line i have highlighted in yellow

res = WorksheetFunction.Match(invvar, Columns(1), 0)
If Not IsError(res) Then

Me.txtClientID.Value = ws13. Cells(res, 7)
Me.txtNumber.Value = ws13.Cells(res, 7)
Me.txtDate.Value = ws13.Cells(res, 8)

Capturing Password ...

Apr 27, 2009

First, I know passwords are easy to break. The point is only to keep the average Excel user in a dept of 3 from accidentally damaging the data.

Normally I hardcode passwords to view xlveryhidden sheets.

But this workbook is for a dept head who has standard password(s) he uses to open or edit a file. I would like to capture these passwords and make it the same password(s) to view a hidden sheet.

This way if he ever changes the password to open/edit it will automatically change the password to view the hidden sheet(s).

Capturing The First Change In A Formula

Feb 16, 2006

I have a spreadsheet that monitors the opening time of some stocks. In the
morning before trading starts it looks like this:

StockTIME
QQQQ-O2/15/06
AAPL-O2/15/06
GOOG-O2/15/06
CSCO-O2/15/06
SPY-A2/15/06

When trading starts, the TIME value records the time of the last trade, thus
the first time will represent the time of the first trade - I am trying to
capture this time value. The problem is that if another trade occurs, the
TIME value updates to the time of that last trade. The TIME value is fed by a
DDE link from a data source.

Is there a way to capture the "first" change in the TIME value ?

Progress Bar Capturing Entries?

Feb 13, 2012

I have a worksheet which counts the entries of some orders via a barcode scanner.

What i would like to have is a progress bar showing graphically the percentage of completion of the progress.

For example in an 8 hour shift , 120 orders should be completed ideally.

The progress bar should show the actual status based on time and entries.

If the orders are processed on time the progress bar is green otherwise is red.

Capturing And Pasting Results

Feb 12, 2008

I have an excel model that cycles through several times and each time, changes the values in certain cells. What I want to do is to continuously add the values of each cell in my range and then paste the results on another worksheet.

My range of cells is B23:E93.

Say I want to run my model 3 times. I want to do the following calculation for each cell in my range and then paste the results:

First B23 = B23 (first value output)
Second B23 = New B23 + First B23
Third B23 = New B23 + Second B23

I then want to copy the results from the final run onto another worksheet named "All Resources." The range here would be B2:E72.

Capturing Data From Userform To Worksheet?

Aug 30, 2012

I have a macro that is starting to get pretty intensive and beyond my knowledge base. Currently is takes the needed data from sheet(1) and copies it to a newly created "Sheet2" in a specific format. Once the macro is done formatting "Sheet2", it shows both userforms for the next part of this macro.

One userform (UserForm1) is for inputting barcode data into rows on "Sheet2" (this is where I am running into problems). I cannot get the userform to capture the captions to the needed cells in "Sheet2".

The other userform (UserForm2) is for a visual representation of the error check. This will check for differences in Sheet2's column data. If a row's data in Sheet2 doesn't duplicate as expected it will flag RED and an image to show in the associated frame in UseForm2.

UserForm1:
Plate ID (PlateIDLabel goes to "PCR Plate ID" header column in Sheet2)
Plate Location (PlateLocationLabel goes to "PCRLocation" header column in Sheet2)

Currently the userform is coded to recognize prefixes for correct input into label textboxes.

Attached it the workbook with macro/userforms.

VB:
Option Explicit
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Sheets.Add.Name = "Sheet2"
ActiveSheet.Move _

HLOOKUP - Multiple Matches - Capturing All?

Dec 15, 2005

I have some values representing daily values belonging to a particular Week number. The week numbers appear from 1 to 6 times in the top row. I would like to get data pertaining to a particular week number (as entered in B10) from the array in the area shown in Light Yellow and from there, I would do some minor calculations to arrive at the required data..

In the sample, the week number 3 appears 3 times and is shown here. The first value I am able to get using HLOOKUP. Getting subsequent occurrences are the issue I have. I thought I will try and use OFFSET function based on the cell reference of the first occurrence of the week number to obtain the rest. I have not had any luck in that.

Basically, my issue is how to use HLOOKUP to obtain if the Lookup value is repeated in the range. Or should this be tackled using some other route?

The week numbers appear in a sequence and are not placed at random.

Button Used For Capturing Time (Timer)

Feb 8, 2009

When reading a water meter in a large apartment building a meter reader can also click a timer (LAP) button as the meter passes preset intervals. The worksheet would record the "lap times" in separate cells which could then be compared and usage figures can be calculated, allowing the meter reader to know if there is currently a Leak or other problem before leaving the premesis.

In the attached worksheet you can see what I would like the meter reader enters the reading - the light green "Interval List" is created from that reading. The Meter reader then watches the meter clicking the LAP button each time the interval is passed, the current time is then stored to the Pink cells (Similar to the NOW() function), the times are then calculated in other cells like I did in the Blue column in this case showing elapsed time.

I have tried several ways to do this using NOW, but each time all the cells are updated to NOW not just the current cell - and the Single Button woulod be really nice so the meter reader didn't have to look away from the meter.

Capturing Keys When Workbook Is Open

Oct 19, 2009

How do I capture keys sent to Excel when my workbook is open / active?

I know when you write a macro you can assign a shortcut key combo to it, such as "Ctrl-Shift-s", but I can't find where / how Excel stores that information, and can only presume it is stored away not accessible to the coder, (ie. not by going via the macro -> properties boxes).

My issue is I want to capture a key combo, then from that call a function passing a variable dependant on the combo pressed, eg:

Capturing All Randbetween Values In Different Cells

Oct 2, 2011

I need the solution for the following:

1. Currently I have a randbetween() formula in cell B2.

2. Cell A1 = B2 (Every time the value in B2 changes so does the value in A1)

Instead, I want that every change in value in cell B2 is captured in progressive cells.

For example:

First iteration in cell B2, value is entered in A1.

Second change in value in B2, value is entered in A2, while value in A1 remains unchanged and so on and so forth.

Capturing Lowest Value Recorded In Data That Changes?

Jan 3, 2012

I run a golf handicapping system that utilises excel quite heavily to record a LOT data over the course of a season. In essence we have in excess of 50 players who play once or twice a week and I record their Stableford scores (dont worry that's a golfing phrase but it is basically how they performed that day) and adjust their golf handicap accordingly - all in XL.

So - a player may start the season with handicap of 20 but over the season this will vary up and down as each score is recorded. A player may well play in excess of 50 rounds in a season.

I currently record the player's starting handicap in one column and in the next column appears the freshly calculated new handicap after a new score has been entered. The column containing the new handicap overwrites the old handicap value each time it is recalculated.

All I want to do is to create a 3rd column that records the lowest handicap value attained during the season. So for each player I guess it should take the newly calculated handicap and decide if it is lowest it has 'seen' in that column and if it is record it.

Capturing Dirty Cells In A Range

Apr 1, 2012

I am building an input tool in Excel and the aim is for people to add data which is then updated and inserted in the database. After this I want to show the user which data has been inserted correctly (green cell) and which has not (red cell with comment).

Wanted to know if there is an easy way to iterate through dirty cells in a range or I am going to have to do some before and after comparisons? For before and after I was thinking of having the start range address and then everything is an offset from here.

Capturing & Using Number Of Copies To Print

Jul 16, 2006

I would like to create a macro to enable a user to enter the number of copies to print, and then print that number of copies of a predetermined range in a spreadsheet. My InputBox routine works fine, but I don't know how to use the info I just captured. The code I have so far is as follows, but I guess I donít know where this number is stored, or how to use it in a print statement. Needless to say, this routine doesnít print the number of copies entered by the user.

Sub TestPrint()
' Ask user to input the number of copies to be printed.
Dim Message, Title, Default, MyValue
Message = "Please enter the number of copies to print" ' Set prompt.
Title = "Number of copies" ' Set title.
Default = "2" ' Set default.
' Display message, title, and default value.
MyValue = InputBox(Message, Title, Default)
Sheets("PaidOut").Select
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, Collate:=True

End Sub

Vlookup- NO Match Error

Dec 15, 2006

I am using Vlookup to search for a text string in column A and storing the value of column B for more than 40 variables.

I do NOT want a macro error on Vlookup each time it can not find a match. I want to store an "error message" in that variable and move on.

countif and a rountine handler sounds like a lot of coding for each variable; can I use ISNA?

SAMPLE
Sheets("CPARS download").Select 'CPARS DOWNLOAD
RFQnum = Strings.Mid(WorksheetFunction.VLookup("RFQ Number", _
Range("CPARSdata"), 2, 0), 1, 13) 'RFQ# should be same for each supplier
' RFQnum = Mid(RFQnum, 1, 13) 'truncate the supplier code at the end
BidDue = WorksheetFunction.VLookup("Bid Due Date", Range("CPARSdata"), 2, 0)...........

Capturing Value From One Userform To Another Or Macro Without Using Cell To Capture?

Oct 31, 2012

i have used two form and a macro in a workbook. First one captures data via text box. This data is captured in a cell. Form two adds a new sheet with the name that is captured in a cell, then perforns some task in the newly created sheet. Macro does the formatting of the newly created sheet and saves the sheet. Again when i reopen the the workbook the value is captured in next blank cell and the procedure follows. This works fine as far as there is a single. But not in case of multiple user at the same time. Is there a way to directly capture the value to form 2 and macro so that multiple user can work on the same time.

Offset Function Not Capturing Entire Range

Feb 9, 2014

My worksheet has 1096 rows of data including headers. I am trying to create dynamic named ranges using the OFFSET function but when I check to see if they are capturing the entire range I see they are not.

Here is my formula:

OFFSET(SiteTrac!$FA$1,0,0,COUNTA(SiteTrac!$FA:$FA),1)
OR
OFFSET(SiteTrac!$FA$1,0,0,COUNTA(SiteTrac!$FA:$FA)-1,1)
OR
OFFSET(SiteTrac!$FA$1,0,0,COUNTA(SiteTrac!$FA:$FA)-1)
OR
OFFSET(SiteTrac!$FA$1,0,0,COUNTA(SiteTrac!$FA:$FA))

I have tried all four but every time it continues to stop on row 409. I have tried to name different columns and they all stop short too.

Capturing Multiple HLOOKUP Results In An Array

Feb 26, 2009

I was provided previously with the code for a VLOOKUPS function for a project of mine by JBeaucaire. It can be found here, in the returned file he provided to me: VLOOKUPS multiple results in a drop down list.

The set up works wonderfully. But now I'm trying to accomplish something that is just a little bit different. I'm trying to to populate an array with all the results returned from an HLOOKUP formula. I was wondering if anybody had any code written that might create an HLOOKUPS function. I've tried to tweak the code provided for the VLOOKUPS function by JBeaucaire but I'm a novice, novice programmer and can only pull off simple functions and procedures.

Filtering - Capturing Additional Rows Daily?

I have a VBA code that captures auto-filtering based on two criteria, but the problem is, the spreadsheet I am working on changes the amount of rows daily (ie: more rows are added onto it).

How can I change my code such that it doesn't fix the filtering area to a certain date's row #'s?

The code is

Rows("6:6").Select
Selection.AutoFilter
ActiveSheet.Range("$A$6:$Q$108").AutoFilter Field:=11, Criteria1:=
"2017708007"
ActiveSheet.Range("$A$6:$Q$108").AutoFilter Field:=5, Criteria1:= _

Capturing Data From Userforms Created At Run Time

I'm now stuck on the obvious Part 2 that isn't included...How does one capture the values in the text fields without knowing the names of those fields. My initial thought is to use a For loop to read the values into an array, like so...

Dim ReadArray (TextFieldCount)
For k = 1 To TextFieldCount
ReadArray(k) = ?????????
Next k

If it were a simple read from a text field I'd use something like:
Set ReadField = TextBox1.Value
