I Want users to be able to copy a reference number from a an external program into excel, this works well for single cells but the cell I want them to be able to paste the information into is a merged cell and keep getting the "Data on the clipboard is not the same size and shape blah blah error". What I can do to get this information to paste? Is there some VBA that can kinda trick the cell to believe its single or when pasting it unmerges and then remerges again?
Excel 2010. I need to place picture into one cell or one big merged cell, as a background fill. picture must resize to size of cell. must be fixed in, not in front. i still need write into that cell, so it needs to be really background.
The issue that I am having is with merged cell data. What I am trying to do is check the value of the merged cell against a selection from an array and place the value into a cell.
What apparently occurs is that if the row that I am on is an even number (being as my rows start on an odd number); the reference returns empty. I have tested to confirm that this only affects even numbered rows. My spread sheet has a 2 row merged cell in column 2, and the cell I am referencing from is on the second row of that merged cell. Here is some
Is there any quick and easy way to unmerge merged cells and put the merged cell value in all the merged cells. For example, if I have A6:A15 merged together and its value is "FirstMerge" then I would like to unmerge all A6:A15 and then put "FirstMerge" in all the cell A6,A7,A8 etc. etc. upt oA15. I have lot of these merged cells in a sheet and I get this every month and makes any data processing very difficult. A macro or VBA code or any other solution will be fine.
Is there a way to automate the resizing of a row to accomodate the text that is pulled into a cell as the result of a formula?
I have a merged cell which receives the result of a DGET formula. The result can be as few as 6 lines of text or as many as 24 lines.
I suspect I need to count the number of lines in the result and resize based on that count multiplied by 15 points.
I don't know how to write the VBA but it would be kind of Resize Row.Countlines x 15 pts. and be executed by the event of calculating the formula from its default setting.
Practically speaking, the default setting is sized per the result of the desired code: there is a blank formatted merged cell that can be manually overwritten that is sized by the typical number of bullet points.
I have many columns in my current spreadsheet but I have two columns that I want to split in to two project names.
Currently I have one column with: Project A/Project B And the second column with the total cost of Project A AND Project B combined
The thing is that I can easily just create a new line but that would mean all the data in the other Cells remain the same and the only two that will be different are the above two columns. I will be maintaining alot of rows so I was hoping I do not have to create two rows for every new item then to merge both rows in reach column every time I have to put in a new Item.
I am hoping to have for example the below
Name Comments Project Cost ------------------------------------------------- Item 1 This item relates Project A $150 to upgrade of Project B $120 SAS system ----------------------------------------------------
Currently I have it as
Name Comments Project Cost ------------------------------------------------- Item 1 This item relates Project A/B $270 to upgrade of SAS system ---------------------------------------------------
I'm using Office 2007 professional and I'm trying to format a cell (merged cell) so that when you enter text and it goes beyond the size of the designed cell that it will automatically continue and shift the additional text downward, like a paragraph. Also it shift everything below down with it. Is this possible? I have already tried wrap text field and AutoFit row height. This keeps it within the cell but it is not visible or printable once you tab out. I would like to have it continue like in a paragraph. Like a word doc may do. It’s visible and it shifts everything below downward as it grows, which also allows it to be printable.
Rows a1:a10 are merged and the problem is that all cells next to these are now not wrapping. I remember reading that when a call is merged this is what happens to the cells adjacent, but is there any code that can help to wrap these adjacent cells?
Currently working on an excel worksheet. I merged 5 rows to a single cell. Want to be able to auto fit all the textl. Enabled auto wrap but when the contect surpass the 5 rows, only portion of the text are appearing. Any way to force the cell to autofit whatever text is within?
In the attached file I have three merged ranges, A3:C3, D3:F3 and G3:I3.
I would now like to create a formula in each cell in row 1 that will return the date in the corresponding cell in row 3. E.g. A1:C1 will each have the date in merged range A3:C3, etc. The merged ranges in row 3 may not all be three columns wide so any way to extract the dates to row 1.
I am doing an export of info from one system and running an excel spreadsheet to manipulate the data. The problem is..That the exported data sometimes will export info into combined cells. Look at attachment
This is what I need...
I need the ability to search all the info on the POC tab and pull it into the info tab, by searching on a system and returning the POC info..
I have tried the vslookup formula and it will return the first row not the second row which is where the info is that I need (shown Highlighted) =VLOOKUP(A4,POC!A2:b50,2,FALSE)
I would like to test how many cells have been merged in a given cell. I know about the MergeCells property which returns true if the cell is merged. But how do i retrieve the number of merged cells in that cell (supposing it is merged, of course).
I have a large data which is placed in single cell and I want to copy it into a template which is merged cells any I'm stucked. My data is very large and I can't unmerged the destination data(they are merged vertically). So I wonder is there a way to copy a single cell in a merge cell.
I am using excel as a base for formatting reports, and collating logical paragraphs, which I want to display in one massive merged cell on another worksheet.
The paragraphs are different for each report, and I do not wish to manually enter them in each time. I also want them to display as seperate paragraphs on the page, but in the same cell.
To throw a spanner in the works, the paragraphs are all of indeterminate length, otherwise, I could use different cells. If I combine them in the massive merged cell by using =cell1&cell2&cell3 then they will just appear merged as one whole huge paragraph. I want them to appear as separate paragraphs in the same big cell.
following on from previous post (http://www.excelforum.com/excel-prog...g-up-form.html) what if the selected cell is a merged cell (cell count is greateer than 1), what is the best solution to enable double click event on merged cell ?
I have 10 columns and 18 rows. Every 2nd row might contain a number. I need to sum those numbers, however, sometimes group of cells in a row can be merged and i value of a cell is then 0.
A1 to D1 merged; value 6 A3 to B3 merged; value 3 B5 to E5 merged; value 2
=sum(A1,A3, A5) would return 9 - correct =sum(B1,B3, B5) would return 2 - should be 11? =sum(C1, C3, C5) would return 0 - should be 8? =sum(D1,D3, D5) would return 0 - should be 8? =sum(E1, E3, E5) would return 0 - should be 2?
I have spread sheet with food items listed. there are subcategories [i.e. bread items] followed by a list of items. then another category, and so on. i have a vlookup formula in the "non category merged cells' "BAKERY" is merged to create headerlike divisions. is there a way to keep the headers and copy the vlookup formula "through" the headers and leave the headers the way they are? i'm not very optimistic but you guys rule!

I have a spreadsheet that has been given to me by someone else, and unfortunately it has merged cells in it that are causing some trouble. I need to have a way to unmerge the merged cells, but for the data in the merged cell to then be copied into each cell that it splits into.
I've attached two spreadsheets - unfortunately I can't really attach the real one since it has research data in it, so I've reduced the size of the file and replaced some of the text. The first file shows how the file starts off, and the file named "result" shows how I would like it to be.
My real file contains some 10,000+ lines of data, and the merged cells are of varying sizes, with no consistency to the size, so I'd like a way to automate this instead of copy and pasting into every empty cell after I unmerge them.
