Nested IF(SEARCH The String In Column)

Dec 17, 2008

Column A contains an alphanumeric string up to 50 characters in length. I need a formula to search the string in Column A for the word "Appeal" and place that word in Column B when found. Likewise for the words "Grievance" and "Complaint". If none of the three words are found in Column A, the contents of Column B should be blank. Here's the formula I've played around with (it works on the first line but returns #VALUE! on following lines):

=IF(SEARCH("Appeal",A1),"Appeal",IF(SEARCH("Grievance",A1),"Grievance",IF(SEARCH("Complaint",A1),"Co mplaint","")))

I've tried entering it as an array, but that also fails. This seems like a pretty simple problem ,but I've spent several hours trying to make the formula work so I'm obviously doing something wrong.

FindNext (search In Column For A String)

Jan 29, 2009

1) search column A for a string
2) as that string is found, move the entire contents of that cell to the same row, column F
3) insert a blank row above the row where the text was found
4) continue to search and perform the same steps

I was able to come up with the code to find a single instance and perform the necessary steps, but I've tried 'til I'm blue in the face to incorporate the FindNext object to parse through the entire worksheet. I thought I was on the right track with the attached code (which could be completely wrong), but it returns my MsgBox "Value Could Not Be Found."

Search Partial String, Return Value In Next Column, Vba

Feb 13, 2008

I would like to search cells in column D for the partial string, "PIPE," (A full string may look like this: 'PIPE, 24"ODx0.375"WT API-5LX-65,ERW OR SMLS'). Then, if it's there, return the value "LF" in the corresponding cell in column C. If that string isn't found, then I'd like it to return "EA".

I know this seems pretty easy, but there's a small problem. The word "BENT PIPE," could be in Column D, in which case, I would want it to return "EA" instead of "LF".

Apr 10, 2009

I need to make a list of items that occur above the string "Room" and the data offset to the bottom and bottom right.

Here is the sample data:
1, 100A

3, 200B
4, Room, Rh
5, 456, 24
6, 300C
7, Room, Rh

On another sheet this is what the output should look like:

2 200B 456 24
3 300C 789 56
...

Here is a copied function that I've been trying to work with. "ROOM_AREAS" is the range in column A. I just can't seem to figure out how the ROW and SMALL functions are supposed to work here.

Conditional Copy Routine: Macro To Search A Column For A Specific Text String

Oct 5, 2009

I am trying to write a macro to search a column for a specific text string which when found, will copy the whole row the string is in. Once this row has been copied, I then want the macro to activate a new sheet and search for the next available empty row to paste the data. Once this has been done, go back to the original sheet and find the next cell in the original column with the specified text string and repeat until the range has been satisfied. Below is the script I have that sort of works.

VBA To Search String And Insert Row If String Not Found

Apr 11, 2013

I have a spreadsheet which has "Employee: [agent 1 name]" in column A and it may or may not have the word "Break" in the same column before it mentions "Employee: [agent 2 name]". The amount of data between agent 1 and agent 2 varies and am needing code which will insert a row above "Employee: [agent 2 name]" if "Break" is not found, and add the word "Break" in column A on the inserted row. I would need this to loop through the spreadsheet until all 100+ agents have been searched.

I'm also needing this done for the word "Meeting" and would insert a row 2 rows above the next agent.

Nested Index / Match Array - Return Value In Column C When Matching Column A And B But With Few More Criteria

Jun 7, 2014

I am trying to use a nested INDEX and MATCH array formula to return the value in column C when matching column A and column B, but with a few more criteria.

The range containing all the data

A
B
C

1
Cat 1
January 1, 2014
John

[Code] ..........

I am looking for the array formula to return the name of the person in column C who is in Cat 1 after the date in column B.

For example;
C7 should return "John" because B7 requests "January 15, 2014", which is after the value in B1
C8 should return "John" because B8 requests "February 15, 2014", which is after the value in B1
C9 should return "Andrew" because B9 requests "August 15, 2014", which is after the value in B4

The best try I had for the formula in C7 was

{(INDEX($A$1:$C$4,MATCH(1,($B$1:$B$4>=B7)*(A$1:$A$4=A7),0),3))}

This brings back "John" as desired in C7, but when copying down the table into C8 and C9 both C8 and C9 return Andrew.

I guess this is due to my ">=" condition in the Match formula and it is returning "Andrew" because "Andrew" is also after the date requested, but I cannot for the life of me work out how to get it to work.

Search For All Instances Of A String

Jul 11, 2009

I'm using the following code which is working well. It finds an instance of the string "A83". Once it finds it, it moves down x number of cells and populates it with a new string. It then moves down another x number of cells and populates it with another new string, etc.

The problem is, it is only looking for "A83" one time and performing the appropriate actions at that point. What I need to do is look for *every* instance of the string "A83" and perform the appropriate actions.

Vlookup To Search For Part Of A String?

Nov 17, 2008

If I have a store number (say 1234) and I am trying to search for something which contains 1234 (i.e. the whole string of ABCD1234, ABCD1235, ABCD1236 etc) is it possible to do this in one VLOOKUP formula?

One way of doing it would be to VLOOKUP("ABCD"&"1234",....) but I would rather do it the other way around, to prevent the formula from not working.

Formula / Macro To Search For A Particular String

May 20, 2009

how to use a formula or macro or whatever that is applicable to solve my current issue.

For example:

I've the following text below. The prefix of "atest", "bgo", "crun" and "dfly_c" are fixed pattern, however, the text after prefix will change accordingly.

atest_myhomeisfar
bgo_runfast
crun_b:veryfast
dfly_c:bluesky

Now my request is, I would like to have the final output as per below. Notices that there are some additional numbers behind the text (with semicolumn).

Final output:
atest_myhomeisfar:1998
brun_veryfast:2009
cfly_bluesky:1790
dfly_c:bluesky:1800

My question is, is it possible to create something to handle this issue? I mean something that will seach thru a particular fixed pattern as mentioned above and add the number behind it?

I would like to do it one at the time (one prefix at a time). Not mass searching and adding.

For example:
Search all "atest*" pattern and add an additional number behind.

How To Search For A String That Includes The Symbol

Sep 18, 2009

I'm writing some VB in an Excel macro to search and replace a string of text.

The problem is that the string contains the " symbol, so when Access gets to that symbol it thinks that it's reached the end of the string.

e.g.

I want to replace "0519","863027" (including the quotes) with "0001","863027"

This is what the code looks like, but it obviously doesn't work :

Search Multiple Keywords In A String?

Jan 22, 2014

I am busy building a spreadsheet that must do the following.

A
B
C
D
E

[Code].....

Above is a basic example of the data I am using What the spreadsheet must do is it must search cell B1 for the key word in in cell E1, if it does not find the keyword, it must search the same cell for the keyword in cell E2 and so on if it finds the key word it must return a consatination of cell A1 and the Keyword.

This is easy enough to do using the search function together with a couple of nested IF statements but where the problem comes in is that I am needing to run the search on about 12000 lines using over 10000 key words.

currently I have sheet with a formula in Column A containing 40 nested IFs searching for the first 40 key the same formula in Column B searching for the next 40 keywords and so on but to search 10 000 keywords(Client name or Client number) I am needing to apply this formula to 250 columns over 12000 line which makes the sheet very resource incentive.

How do I streamline this to make the spreadsheet more efficient
