Macro Will Not Run Find And Replace With The Contents Of A Cell
I want to have a macro that will look at a few cells say A1 & A2 and then use the contents of the cells say 1Q07 & 2Q07 respectively to do a find and replace find 1Q07 and replace it with 2Q07. I want it to use the contents of the cell and not just the text because the contents of the cell will change each time used. I tride to do it here but I dont have it yet. It doesnt seem to pass the value to the variable and the variable doesnt seem to do the find and replace.
Private Sub Update_Click()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Dim quarter As String
quarter = CStr(txtquarter.Text)
txtquarter.Text = CStr(quarter)
Dim oneq As Single
Dim twoq As Single
Dim threeq As Single
Dim fourq As Single
Dim fiveq As Single
oneq = ActiveSheet.Range("A2").Value
twoq = oneq - 1
threeq = twoq - 1
fourq = oneq - 4
fiveq = oneq - 5

Auto-replace Typed Contents In A Cell With A Formula
I want to set up a sheet macro that will replace the contents of a cell (when a specific number is typed in) with a specific formula.
For instance, when "43" is typed into any cell within specified columns (say columns C and H), it changes to the following formula: =IF(D47="",43,IF(D47<=3030,408,43))(WHERE D47 WOULD REPRESENT THE CELL ADJACENT TO THE CELL WHERE "43" WAS TYPED.)
If "43" was typed into cell C1, then it would change to the formula: =IF(D1="",43,IF(D1<=3030,408,43))
If "43" was typed into cell C50, then it would change to the formula: =IF(D50="",43,IF(D50<=3030,408,43))
Find, Replace With And Then Replace Adjacent Cell
I am trying to create a macro where it finds a a certain word in a column for example C. What i want it to do is find anything that says FWD_EUR and then replace that cell (e.g C2) with CASH_EUR_FWD and after it has done that it replaces the adjacent cell (e.g. D2) with EUR_FWD. I then want this to do the same with FWD_USD to CASH_USD_FWD and adjacent cell to USD_FWD.
Search Across Columns By Row & Replace Specific Cell Contents
I have created a desk planning spreadsheet in excel. Each week a mailmerge sends out an email to everyone in the office asking them to confirm when they will need a desk in the next week.
As the normal employee doesnt get involved in desk planning I want them simply to state whether they will be in the building or not by entering "GH" (our building) in a cell under each day in the email they get sent.
When the reply comes in we select the cells from the email and then paste them into the desk planning spreadsheet.
WHAT I NEED TO DO:
Select some cells (must be in the same row - that we have just pasted in).
Press a button on the Worksheet labelled "Auto Assign Desk", which does this:-
For each cell that contains "GH", replace with the right-most cell to the left of the selection that starts "GH_"... (this is the start of a unique desk reference (GH_1_1, GH_1_2,etc.)
This will assign the employee to the desk they were sat at last, when they are in the office next week.
Macro To Find And Replace
I had written a macro about two years ago that replaced longer company names with common abbreviations. I store it in Personal.xls, and it has been relatively fast (2-5 sec for most projects with < 2000 rows). However, I tried it on a file with 15,000 rows, and it choked Excel - i.e. it wouldn't run and had to be force quite (Excel XP on Windows 2000).
Here is a portion of the macro (I have about 40 companies that need to be abbreviated, names here have been simplified to protect the guilty ). I stepped through a couple of these lines to see what would happen, and each line took at least 1-2 min.
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Cells.Replace What:="Company AAAA", Replacement:="AAAA", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows
Cells.Replace What:="Company BBBB", Replacement:="BBBB", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows
Cells.Replace What:="Company CCCC", Replacement:="CCCC", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows
Cells.Replace What:="Company DDDD", Replacement:="DDDD", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

Macro For Find & Replace
I have a workbook (materials forecasting) that automatically pulls from another workbook (production schedule).
The materials forecasting workbooks are named in regards to the current Monday (ie 02-02-09.xls, 02-09-09.xls, etc). The production schedules are named in accordance with the financial periods and weeks, ie PD1WK1.xls, PD1WK2.xls, PD1WK3.xls, PD1WK4.xls, PD2WK1.xls, etc
The materials forecasting sheet looks two weeks out.
EXAMPLE (pretend that today is the first day of PD1WK1)
Cell C1 will reference PD1WK1.xls
Cell C2 will reference PD1WK2.xls
Each week I copy the old materials forecasting sheet and rename it to the current week (ie I take 02-02-09.xls and rename it to 02-09-09.xls). I have a bunch of macros set up to move my deliveries up a week and what not. One macro I would like to set up, however, is that by putting a value in a cell the find and replace macro will work.
Cell A1 will reference PD1WK2.xls
Cell A2 will reference PD1WK3.xls
Cell C1 will reference PD1WK1.xls
Cell C2 will reference PD1WK2.xls
Then I would have the macro find all instances of whatever value is in cell C2 and replace it with whatever value is in cell A2. Then likewise fore C1 and A1 respectively. (If you think about what I am doing here... all I am doing is moving the schedule up one week so that I am forecasting using the right schedule).
I can manually do this but I would prefer a macro based on a simple user input for when people fill in for me.

Macro Find&replace Only Exact Value
This macro finds and replaces multiple values found on another sheet. however, it does not only take the exact value, also others.
If i want to change "Example 1", "Example 2", ... "Example 10" into "One", "two", etc. Example 10 then changes into "One 0" because it changes the Example 1 (without the 0 in 10) into One. Is there any way to alter this (or do you have another macro to replace multiple values?

To Find Part Contents Of A Cell
I've got a code that does what I want it to do, but I have to select the start point manually becuase it's position varies on different documents. It's usually around row 650 out of 1200, but the cell I want to start the macro at always contains the word ELECTRONIC. What I would like to do is modify my code so that it finds that cell itself and then runs the rest of the code. I'm not very good with VBA, but I've tried a few things like Dim LR-2 and using that but I get error messages about duplicates.

Find And Replace Part Of Cell
As part of a macro i do a find and replace on a range cells that replaces "/1" with nothing (""). Therefore 2/1 becomes 2, what i don't want though is if the de-nominator includes a 1 but not only 1 to keep the whole of the de-nominator, say 8/11 does not want to become 8/1.
Find Value & Return Contents Of Offset Cell
On Sheet2 I have a table where I want M2 to do the following:
1.) Look at cell A2 where the name "John" is and B2 where the name "smith" is.
2.) Look at sheet1 and look in B2 and C2 for "John" and "smith"
3.) Once it matches the name, place the contents of sheet1, cell I2 into sheet2, cell M2.
So in short, match the name on sheet2 to the name on sheet1 and return the number in I2 to M2 on sheet2.
Maybe combining the persons name in to one column would make it easier?

Find Part Of Text Within Cell And Replace From Another Cell
I need to find the "x" in range C2:C44 and replace it with a value (variable) specified in cell I2
The catch is that I then need to be ablt to change that character when I2 changes.
I2 - Variable = B
*T’x’STATUS will become *T’B’STATUS
I2 - Variable = A
*T’x’STATUS will become *T’A’STATUS
But " *OFF " should not change.
I can change *T’x’STATUS to *T’B’STATUS but then I can change *T’B’STATUS to *T’A’STATUS
Please see attached example file as it shows it better than I can explain it.
Find And Replace :: Cell Moving Down In Linked Sheet?
I have a spreadsheet which is linked to other spreadsheets. When I use "find and replace" on this spreadsheet, it causes one of my linked cells to move down one row. Why does it do this? This particular cell has nothing to do with the "find and replace" option.
I have no idea how to stop this from moving this cell down.
Replace Contents Of Calculated Location
I used to write macros in 123 and compile and sell them. Now working in VBA I feel like a pre-schooler. I'm just trying to do a simple macro that will look at a cell (say D4) and evaluate the formulat there which might result ing a new location (like G10), and put a "Y" in G10, , then, after I enter a few more bits of information, it will, upon my keystroke (like CTRL-F) do it again, enter the "Y" in the new cell, whatever D4 says now. I know that this isn't hard--but I sure can't figure out how to do it!
Paste Special, Replace Contents Of Destination
I am writting code that copys a range and then pastes the values back over the same range, which gets rid of the functions in the cells. I am doing this for multiple sheets.

I do, how do I get my code to answer yes to this message box?
Macro To Find End Of Column And Paste Contents In Column 1
I have the file here i work with, basically the first column is a legend and the column to the right of it is a pointer column to help me find out where a legend is located in another file. So i was wondering if a macro could be made to basically find where the "legend column" A, C, E ect ends ( every other column is a legend column , one next to it is a pointer column ). and then combine the ends all of the columns contents and put them into 1 column.
In the file with this question i have showed you what i start off with, i highlighed in yellow where each column legend ends, ( normally these are not highlighted and i find them manually ). In the 2nd tab i show what the end result should be. All the columns are now consolidated into 1 column. 1 after the other.
Macro To Enumerate Cell Contents
I have attched a spreadsheet to try to illustrate that task I am trying to complete.
In the original data "HANDSET MODEL" in cell D3 contains 3 handset models separated by underscores. I would like to enumerate these so that each handset model has its own row(the underscores will not be needed in the final version). All other data in that row stays the same(cells A3,B3,C3,E3)
Once this has been done I need the macro to move down to the next row and enumerate the handsets in cell D4, on this occassion thare are four handset and the number will vary from row to row. The macro would need to be able to cope with a variable number of rows for the original data and variable amount of handsets in the D column.

4) The macro takes the cell value and converts it into a filename.
5) The specified file is opened in an external program.

Run Macro On Double Cell Click If Cell Part Of Named Range
I have a sheet where i have many differently named areas (like state1_1 and state1_2) When I doubleclick on a cell then a macro should run with following criteria: 1) Macro will run if the doubleclicked cell is part of any range in the list. Here I mean that names of ranges which belong to that list start with word state (like state1_1 and state1_2). No other ranges should not be in that list. If the cell is not in the range that is part of the list, then nothing should happen.
Pass Each Cell Value In Range To Cell & Run Macro Code
I have workbook template that I use to generate reports from a list of depts. This list is contained in a drop down cell that is a named range in a different worksheet. My current process is as follows:
-Select Dept Name from the list
-Click a command button which is assigned to code that calculates and saves to a file
-Repeat for next report until all reports are generated
I would like to automate this process by producing all reports with a single command with the following functionality:
-The Dept Name needs to be populated in the specified cell containing the current drop down because it drive various vlookups and other formulas
-If possible, I would like to retain the drop down functionality as I would like to have the option of running an individual report or running the “batch”.

Cell Value To Run A Specific Macro
I have several macros that email a specific section of a workbook when I run it - I have an icon (image) per section. I want to be able to run a macro that calls one of these section specific macros based on a choice from a drop down list.
It would work this way:
- From the drop down in cell E11 I choose "New Jersey"
- I would then click on the email image next to the cell (next to E11)
- that macro would call the macro that emails the "new Jersey" section.
I realize there might be a much better way, easier even. However, I already have the other macros written out and would just want to add this step.
