Macro To Loop A Column To Replace The Name
I want a marco that can "find & replace" in a column, let's say K. Let's just say I want to find "AAA" and replace "BBB" and "CCC" and replace "DDD", I just need the code so I can change it myself. It will be more than 40+ replacement.

Find And Replace With Loop
I have a sheet with data on it. In column 5 I have adate range and I would like to delete and values which have "01/01/1900". Currently I have created a loop but for some reason it does nothing. I can use the find option and it picks up the cells with the ones on. For some reason it seems that it cant find them cells.
The code is as follows
rowcn = 8
target_sheet = "Status Report"
'status_flag = 0
If Sheets(target_sheet).Cells(rowcn, 5) = "01/01/1900" Then
Sheets(target_sheet).Cells(rowcn, 5) = ""
rowcn = rowcn + 1
Loop While Sheets(target_sheet).Cells(rowcn, 1) > 0
More Efficient Alternative To Find-Replace Loop?
I was tasked with looking through a 10,000 row by 20 column spreadsheet for 628 different ID Codes and replacing them with their Descriptions. The ID Codes could appear individually in any of these cells (200,000 cells!).
The list of ID's and Descriptions hardly ever changes, so I decided to create the two-dimensional array as part of the find-replace macro shown below (only a few lines of each dimension are shown).
My question isn't related to that (although if you can suggest a better alternative please do). The main "work" of the macro is the loop at the end of the array declarations, which essentially loops through all 628 ID codes in array dimension 1 and does a Find-ReplaceAll with its corresponding Description from array dimesion 2.
This task, manually, could take days. My macro has whittled the task down to 2.5 minutes on a 5-year-old laptop, but I was hoping one of the gurus might suggest an even better method than 628 loop iterations. If not, so be it, the end users will appreciate what I've done and then have to find something to do with their "free time."
Loop To Replace Dropdown Clear Code
I have this code on a tab containing a series of dependent dropdowns. There are two dropdowns in each row, Dropdown2 being dependent on the choice in Dropdown1. This code replaces any contents of Dropdown2 with "Select..." if Dropdown1 changes. (Dropdown1 and Dropdown2 are NOT names, those are just the way I refer to them).
Macro Loop To Extract Specific Values And Min/Max Values From Column/Rows Range
Hi, I'm very new to writing Excel Macro's and wanted to know if I could do the following. Conceptually, I understand what I need done and think it should be fairly straightforward.
There's 2 main events in this loop (I hope that's the correct terminology):
Input 1) User defines the beginning cell to start the loop. In this case, A2.
Input 2) User defines the range of columns/rows to display. The formula for rows that I've thought of is 4r. So if a user wants 20 rows below cells A2, they simply input 5 for r. The number of columns is a constant 5. So if r=5, then I'd want the range to be A2:E22......
Loop Column & Display Variable In Other Column
on the syntax of things in VBA. here's a description of what i'm trying to do:
1) loop through a particular column ("N"), and compare the values (if not blank) with corresponding cells in another column ("V"). i.e. - comparing N1 to V1, N2 to V2, etc...
2) run If, ElseIf statements to display appropriate values in different column ("O"), but on the row that corresponds to the row the values in Step 1 are compared. i.e. - if N1 > V1 then cell O1 = value; if N2 > V2 then cell O2 = value; etc...
here's an example (but obviously not in proper syntax). hopefully someone can help me convert it to Excel VBA:
Dim Col1 As Column = ColumnN
Dim Col2 As Column = ColumnV
Dim Col3 As Column = ColumnO
Dim Cell As Cell
Dim IndexValue As Integer
For Each Cell In Col1
If Col1 > Col 2 Then
IndexValue = 5
Else If Col1 < Col2 Then
IndexValue = 4
If Not IsEmpty(Cell) Then Col3 = IndexValue
Concatenate Column With Adjacent Column In Loop
I had a problem finding something then deleting the column, I tried to alter the code from that thread to solve a new problem and I am close (I think), but not quite there. I need to find the column "Group" and merge it with the column "Sex" which is offset by 1 column. This code will go through and find the column "Group" and merge for the first cell, but will then get stuck in a loop just concatenating "Sex" to the end continuously. I need it to concatenate both columns entirely together. Any simple fix to what I modified? Previous thread should you be interested:Find Part Text On All Sheets & Delete The Column.

Replace All Non Blanks In Column
I am trying to find a way to code to replace any cell that is not blank with the text "LOA", then after I replace all blanks with "Active"
The Replace blanks is easy:
Columns("K").Replace What:="", Replacement:="Active", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
but before this I dont really know how to quickly replace all non blank rows. Only way I know is to loop thru all cells in the column checking for not equal to "" then replacing, but the code above for replacing blanks is elegant, and only replaces in the used data section.
Search And Replace Text In A Column
I want to replace all blank cells in column A with the word "BLANK" but my problem is that I need to tell Excel to stop searching for blank cells in column A once and only once column A is equal to the last data row in the column named "Product Number". I tried this macro but, naturally, it replaces all the empty cells in the WHOLE COLUMN.
I will always have a header column in row 1. The data is below that (data will always start at row 2).
Selection.Replace What:="", Replacement:="BLANK", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
How can I change this so that the find/replace macro searches all the way down equal to the last data row in the "Product Number" column?
Below are 2 examples. Example 1 is pre macro and example 2 is post macro.

Find & Replace With Column Data
I was wondering if it is possible to perform a find and replace which would replace data from another column. We have a lot of data fields of our inventory that we exported which we are trying to condense for another program.
Example: I have a description column (AV) that has [[Manufacturer]] within the description. We want to find [[Manufacturer]] and replace with our data column (DD).
This is the data that has our manufacturers name in it. We have several find and replaces to do within the description column besides the above field.
Find Numeric Codes In A Column And Replace In Vba
I am using the following vba code to find numeric codes in a column and replace them with the same code along with descriptive text:
Selection.Replace What:="11", Replacement:="11 - GSA"
Selection.Replace What:="10", Replacement:="10 - NYS OGS"
Selection.Replace What:="1", Replacement:=" 1 - Dist Sale"
Selection.Replace What:="2", Replacement:=" 2 - Direct Sale"
Selection.Replace What:="3", Replacement:=" 3 - No Sale: Warranty Exchange"
The problem as you might already see is that when the replacement of "1" happens, Excel will replace the 1 in the 10 and 11. Of course I want to only replace the number 1. Is there a better way to code this operation?

Replace Numerical Data Column A, 11K Rows! VBA
Need to sort my data in column A which contains a long list of numerical data. To do this manually using copy and paste would be easy, but not viable because of the large amount of data.
The attached PDF file illustrates the data. I wish to replace each date of dirth entry in column A (one D.O.B. in each cell / row, expressed as YYYYMMDD) with the client identifier number (format 937XXXX) a couple of cells above. And at the same time delete the row containing the client reference (or its contents). The data in column A should retain the same relationship to the data in the other columns (B,C). it may require a short piece of VBA code.

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

Looking For Macro To Replace Formula's
I have been having a problem with the worksheet (attached) and was wondering if anyone could give me any help.
I will explain the purpose of the sheet etc first and what it does at the moment:
This work sheet is to record peoples projects, hours related to those projects, and calculate their availability 37.5-(project hours+pto) for Belfast and dublin and 40-(project hours+pto) for chicago, and also their utilization which is =((37.5-Availability)/37.5)*100 for belfast and Dublin and ((40-Availability)/40)*100 for Chicago.
When a project is added I am currently going in and updating the formula for that person to incorporate the new row which their project is on, this is proving to be quite time consuming, and I was wondering if there were any macro’s that could be used so that it would search for a name on the first column and use each of the hours that are in the column for the given week to calculate the availability?
The utilization is not a big problem as it just uses the availability so as long as the availability is correct then the utilization is correct..
If there is not a macro do you know of any way this can be automated so that I do not manually have to add to formula for each cell when a new row is added with a project and hours?
Replace A Formula With It's Value - Do I Need To Macro?
I have a spreadsheet with 2 columns (let's pretend), the first column uses Data Validation for a dropdown list. The second column contains a formula that references the 1st column and uses lookup:
So as soon as a value is selected in column A, column B changes to display a value.
Rather than just displaying this value, I would like the cell in column B to be completely replaced by this value, so goodbye to the formula.
Is there a way that I can do this? Will I need to go and study how to use macros?
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 To Replace ONLY X's With Blank
I have a customer data file in which some cells have been completed with x's and I need to replace any cell that contains x's with a blank.
I can easily do this when the cell contains a single x by using find and replace within the macro, but some customers have completed fields with xx or xxx or xxxx and so on - these x's may be in upper or lower case.
I can't just replace all instances of x (or X) with blank on partial cells as there will be company names or address details that will contain an x.
What I need is a way to identify cells that contain ONLY x character(s): so "x" would be replaced with blank as would "xx", "xxx" etc., but "XYZ Limited", "LOXX & Co." or "Essex" need to be left as is.
I can't even think where to begin on this. Anyone got any bright ideas or can point me in the right direction?
Macro To Replace Formula Reference
I have created a workbook that generates new worksheets with unique identifiers as tab names. I.e. On a "Create New Sheet" worksheet, input three pieces of data, click "Create New Sheet" and this data is applied to a template sheet, macro continues running to copy the template and rename is with a unique SKU.
My problem is as follows: I have yet to figure out how to generate an Index page that is updated as each new sheet is added with the following:
a) Cell containing the SKU and a hyperlink (or some other link) to that particular tab, and
b) Beside this cell, pull the contents of certain cells from that SKU's tab (such as description, but also the contents of calculated fields on that SKU's tab like current quantity and current price).
I would like the Index to be live so that if data is changed on the SKU's tab, it flows through to the Index......
Loop Down Column & Across Rows
I need to create a loop within a loop. First loop works fine as follows:
x = 0
Dim DirArray(0 To 80) As String
Dim intI As Integer
For intI = 0 To 80
DirArray(intI) = Range("start").Offset(intI, 0).Value
For x = 0 To 80
lob = DirArray(x)
Range("lob") = lob
Sheets("WBB LOB Summary").Select
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, Collate:=True
At the 'start' point, first loop works downward through rows. Second loop would work across columns in each row within the first loop. I will have to use a variable for 'y' (the across value) b/c the number of cells containing data can vary between 3 & 9, but I have a COUNTA in each row setup to use as the variable.
So spreadsheet data would look like this with A being the 'start' cell:
A 1 2 3
B 1 2 3 4 5 6
C 1 2 3 4
I need to pickoff A1, A2, A3, B1, etc, picking up every sub-category on the sheet.

In addition after this bit I then need it to look up every new "Brand" and for the eight columns preceding (after) the new value I need to be cleared (any entries in those columns in that specific row of the "Brand" value deleted).

Macro To Replace IF Statement That Compares 2 Cells
In cell M32 there will either be an O or the cell will be blank. In cell T51 I had placed an IF statment like this:
Now that works ok but there is a glitch on my part. If T51 is blank because of M32 containing an "O" then the user will also enter a number into T51. Because I was using an IF formula in the cell it gets overwritten because of the user needing to enter data in the cell because of M32 containing a O. How do I write a macro so that a similar formula is used but still able to enter data manually without overwritting the formula?

Macro To Replace 0s With Blanks In Large Ranges
I've been looking around to find something like this for a while and I'm pretty new to VBA, so I haven't figured it out myself yet.

When I just select the range and use 'Find and Replace' to remove the 0s, it alters 10s, 20s, 30s, any number that even ends in zero instead of just the value of zero itself,

The number of sheets differs between the files. The data that should be changed is in column C, starting at cell C10. But the number of rows differs. If the data in the cell begins with a Q, the Q should be removed, and if it doesn't begins with Q it should be skipped.
Finding Max Column Width Without A Loop?
I have a range of cells which I wish to print to a .txt document. However, I would like these cells to stay aligned, one on top of the other. I am currently doing that by finding the cell with the widest piece of data for each column, and storing the width that each column needs to be to an array of integers. Then, when printing out the range, I simply add spaces to each piece of data its width is the same as the max column width. I am finding the max column width using the following loop:
'find the width for each column and store in col_width()
For cur_col = 1 To total_cols
'skip the tag switches column
If cur_col <> 3 Then
max_data_width = 0
For cur_row = 1 To total_rows
cell_data_width = Len(Find_String_Diagnostics(diagnostic_range.Cells(cur_row, cur_col)))
If cell_data_width > max_data_width Then.................
Loop Through Cells On 1 Row Of Column Range

How is this best achieved? having trouble with this. adding a letter to it concatinates them, and adding numbers, well its a mismatched type so that simply does not work.
