Macro To Find Replace Specific Text In Multiple Sheet Names

Sep 13, 2010

I need a macro that will look for a specific text string in the tab names of the workbook and replace it with a new specified text string (leaving the rest of the existing tab names). In other words, a simple find/replace but applied to all tab names in the workbook rather than cells. Ideally, I'd like it to pop up something and ask for the text to find and the text to replace it with, so I don't have to edit the macro itself each time I want to use it, but editing the macro each time is fine. Either way will be wonderful.

Formula To Find Specific Text And Replace With Alternate Text?

Mar 4, 2014

I have a worksheet with several columns. I need a formula to search column D only and each time a specific location is identified to replace that location with alternate text. Example (ORIGNAL TEXT):

Column Dtext to text help.xlsx
BIRD
FISH
DOG
BAT
BUG

I need to search that listing and each time the word BIRD is mentioned have it replaced with FEATHERS and each time DOG is listed have it replaced with TAILS Final result would look like:

FEATHERS
FISH
TAILS
BAT
BUG

All other text should stay the same and replacement text should appear in the cell of the text it is replacing. This is a sheet used by multiple people several times a day and so the Find/Replace option really won't work.

Have working on this for at least 6 months and it just isn't going to happen for me. I thought I could use a Conditional format, but that is producing no results either.

Macro To Find Specific Text In Column And Copy Certain Cells In Same Row To Different Sheet

Dec 30, 2011

how to work macros or VBA

I have a workbook with multiple sheets named by month and year that I use to keep track of loans I work with at a bank. In these sheets I have info such as:

Column B = due date
Column D = loan# A
Column E = loan# B
Column F = status
Column H = followup needed
(Columns A,C, and G aren't important for the current need)

What I am trying to do is create a main sheet (TRACKER) that all I will have to do is press a macro button and it will pull info for each loan that is in a pending status.

I need a macro that will search column F (Status) on all sheets and find each instance of "Pending" and once that is done, copy rows B,D,E, and H in each "Pending" instance and copy them to their designated area on my TRACKER sheet. After that is done I need it to continue to the next "pending" instance and do the same on the next available line on my TRACKER sheet.

The overall goal would be that everyday I can press the macro and it will repopulate the sheet with the current pending items (as each day I will change pending status' to complete and no longer need to track it the next day).

I already have the tracker sheet set up and ready to go with the spaces as follows:
Column G&H = Merged cells where due date will need to go
Column I&J = Merged cells where loan# A will need to go
Column K&L = Merged cells where loan# B will need to go
Column M thru S = Merged cells where followup needed will need to go

Macro To Open Workbooks Of Multiple Specific Names?

May 2, 2014

I currently have a piece of code that opens all of the files in a folder that are called "*agent*", opens them and copies information. Now, these files come with numbers at the beginning which, are always the same. I only want to open certain files that begin with, for example, 801, 802, 803, 804, 805 and 806. How would I write this into my code? As you can see from the below code, it now looks for the files that all have "agent" in the name, but this is opening files that have that name but are not the right ones. Here is my current macro...

[Code] ....

I hope this isnt as simple as putting "MyFile = Dir(MyFolder & "*801*", "*802*")" etc.

Find Specific Text In Multiple Rows / Columns And Align All Vertically To Same Column

Apr 25, 2013

I have a macro that converts all my PDF Purchase Orders to a text file and inserts the data/text horizontally into another document. However because the PDF's or the text within the PDF can be fomatted differently (that is on different lines etc) it therefore imports the information and it looks mis-aligned.I have attached a simple spreadsheet showing some sample text as it is imported and then below this how it should look like, all in line.

The range where the highlighted text in red is, is variable (but say nothing more than a variant of 10 columns). The text can also be Uppercase or Lowercase.So, I was wondering if there is macro code to find the "text" on various rows/columns and align it all in another column?

Show Rows That Contain Specific Text In New Sheet From Multiple Other Sheets

Jun 9, 2014

I have a workbook with 50 sheets. Within each sheet are rows of text that I need to search for specific text.

I'd like to search each row from each sheet for specific words (e.g. "7 days") then show the resulting rows data/text in a new sheet along with the name of the sheet and row number it came from.

e.g.

Sheet 1 contains the text "7 Days" on line 40
Sheet 2 contains the text "7 Days" on line 1, 30, 50

In a new sheet, I would show the entire row in its own row that contains the text "7 Days" along with the name of the sheet and row number it was found in

Macro To Find Matching Text In A Range And Select Specific Cell

Oct 18, 2013

I have a client list in a table in my excel sheet. I currently enter the clients in a sheet that looks similar to a form. After the clients info is in this Form I have a button with a macro to copy the client info into a table on another sheet. This works perfectly.

Now I have another form that will retrieve the customers info in a click of a button in order to make changes to the client. Ei:I now have a second phone number and I want to update that client's info. What I want to do from here is take the info in Cell B2 (clients full Name), Do a vLookup in the "Saved Clients Table" in a Range within my table range. (Range: Saved Clients and the client's full name is in $A:$A and called "Clients Full Name" and once that name is found I need to select the cell in column C and the corresponding row.

This will allow me to copy the info in my form, Paste it in Transpose to the cell that is selected. (I already have that code)

Here are screenshots of what I am trying to accomplish. [URL] .......

Excel 2010 :: Find And Replace Within Specific Column?

Oct 1, 2012

I have an excel workbook where some sheets have a column called "Name" in Row 3. The column where "Name" appears shifts based upon other criteria so it's not set within 1 specific column.

The real data for the "Name" column starts in Row 5. Is it possible to create a macro that looks in Row 3 for "Name", then once it finds that column, it does a find and replace from Row 5 to the end of the data and replaces every space with a ^.

For example, if I have:

Row 3 Name
Row 4
Row 5 John Smith
Row 6 Jane Doe
Row 7 John Doe
Row 8 Jane Smith

I'd like the data to become:

Row 3 Name
Row 4
Row 5 John^Smith
Row 6 Jane^Doe
Row 7 John^Doe
Row 8 Jane^Smith

I'm using Excel 2010 if that impacts anything.

Find And Replace A Specific Letter/number Combination

Jul 9, 2008

I have a column of references I wish to standardize. Contained within a general text description there is also an order-specific reference number, which is not relevant for my purposes. I wish to find all of these numbers and replace them with nothing (i.e. retain the rest of the description).

The reference numbers are always in the format "P#####/##". Unfortunately these references are in the middle of the text field, not at the start or end, so I can't use a LEFT or RIGHT formula to delete them.

Once these reference numbers have been deleted I will then be able to filter for unique records only. When I do this at the moment the filtering has no effect due to these specific reference numbers.

Macro - Select Multiple Cells By Searching For Specific Text

Nov 8, 2013

I would like to select all cells in column A that begin with the text "SP". Some cells will be contiguous but others will not. For instance in one case, I would like the macro to select cells with the text "SP" which would result in cells A1, A2, A3, A10, A15 being selected. I am working on building a macro that will then do other things to these cells/rows so this is the first step.

The below code will select the first cell with "SP". How would I alter this code to only search Column A and select multiple cells? or totally different code.

Code:
Sub test()
Dim r As RangeSet
r = Cells.Find(what:="SP", LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole)
If Not r Is Nothing Then r.Select
End Sub

Replace Specific Character ONLY If Its LAST In The Sheet

Nov 27, 2013

Switched to Excel after using OpenOffice and I'm stuck on knowing what an old a 'find and replace' formula would be in Excel. It would remove a specific character (or word) ONLY if it was the last characters in a cell.

The old find and replace for open office:
Find: (.*)/$
Replace: $1

It's not that important now to delete a word, mainly the last slash '/' ONLY if it's the last character e.g. this data has 2 rows with a '/' as the last character

website.com/page
website.com/page/
website.com/page/page/

Running my old find and replace formula would remove the last slashes, but leave the others

website.com/page
website.com/page
website.com/page/page

Need simple replacement to the find and replace but a formula is also right.

Find And Replace Formula For Locating Short Text Within Larger Text?

Jan 7, 2014

I have an existing Cash Flow Report that has a column of abbreviated/shortened (WBS Element) title where each cell contains a unique three lettered/numbered amount of characters (Example: 200). These three abbreviated character cells are specific and relate to their full/longer (SAP WBS Element) title (Example: WBS DWRRI-BW066-200).

In my attached excel model (Find, Locate, and Align WBS Elements to Cash Flow Report.xlsx), I need a formula for the, "Cash Flow Report WBS Elements" sheet in cells B3 thru B11 that will look at the abbreviated three lettered/numbered (WBS Element) titles in cells C3 thru C11, then search and recognize its unique counterpart contained in the, "SAP WBS Elements Export" sheet and return this full/longer (SAP WBS Element) title to the, "Cash Flow Report WBS Elements" sheet in cells B3 thru. B11, just to the left of its abbreviated/shortened (WBS Element) title.

I want to do is search for "&s_kwcid" or anything containing "&s_kwcid" and replace it with blank. So above would then read:

fdfs
sfsd
&dfsdaf&dsafdsf
fdsf&dasfsdf

I tried =IF(SUM(COUNTIF(E2,{"&s_kwcid*"}))=1,E2,"") but it didn't work. I tried auto filtering, and using contains &s_kwcid* but it didn't filter out results, but find &s_kwcid did find results for text anywhere in string, so I know the problem is there.
