## Find Opposite Value

Jan 12, 2012

I'm trying to find anything that does not equal my criteria in the Find (MI Only). I've tried using to no avail.

Code:
Set rngFound = rngToSearch.Find(What:="MI Only", LookAt:=xlPart, MatchCase:=False)

How to do this, or if it's even possible?

## Opposite Of Sumproduct

Nov 2, 2009

what is the opposite of sumproduct? I want to divide the quantity in column A by the opposing value in Column B to get the answer in B5. I made this example simple but it would be used on a much larger scale. if there is a function that would divide and sum ?

## Counting Opposite Signs Between 2 Arrays

Feb 26, 2009

I have two columns with values of either 1 or -1. I'm trying to find a formula that I can write in one cell that counts the # of times column A and column B have opposite signs.

## Duplicate Every Nth Cell In Opposite Column

Jan 17, 2008

I have a worksheet, example data below, it has 150+ columns and varying amounts of rows 1 -> 2500+ per column. The row data is as follows:

Row 1: Has title of worksheet
Row 2: Date of the column
Row 3: Total of completed for the day
Row 4 - n: Serial number

I need to intsert a new column to the right of each column and then populate it with the date at the top of the column from the left, I need the new date value to go down until it reaches the end of the data in the left column. So effectivly each serial number will have date in the column to its right.

There are no blanks in the rows, or blank columns.

Example of existing:

5/04/2007
35
100621090
104436159
104876402
462933606

Required:

5/04/2007
35
100621090 5/04/2007
104436159 5/04/2007
104876402 5/04/2007
462933606 5/04/2007

**Note date is in second column and taken from top of first column. Does not need to update if date is changed.

## Change Value Based On Opposite Cell

Jun 25, 2008

In Column A I have a number of differnet country codes and for 2 of them I want to change the value in Column B. For Example if cell A1 is = to "SHA" I want cell B2 to be "SHANGHAI". If cell A1= to "SGN" I want B1 to be = to "HO CHI MINH". If cell A1 is = to anything else I want the value to B2 to remain unchanged.

## Change List Of Text In Opposite Order

Jul 4, 2013

I need to change the list of names in a column to another area but in the reverse order, not in sorted order (eg. I have list of names in A1:A10 and want to make a reverse order of this list in another area).

## Returning Entire Row From Opposite Sheet Quickly

Feb 21, 2014

I have formula that looks for information from another sheet (sheet name "ValidationLists")in Column A (list "billto") and returns all the occurances in my current worksheet (including the 10 columns next in the array). What it looks for is based on whatever value is currenty in Cell A2.

Example of formula is as follows:

{=IF(ISERROR(INDEX(ValidationLists!\$A\$2:\$J\$300,SMALL(IF(billto=\$A\$2,ROW(billto)),
ROW(1:1))-1,1)),"",INDEX(ValidationLists!\$A\$2:\$J\$300,SMALL(IF(billto=\$A\$2,
ROW(billto)),ROW(1:1))-1,1))}

Basically I want to return everything that matches cell A2 of my current sheet from sheet list "billto" in a different sheet but I need the adjacent cells as well. So one cell below this would read the following (Just the Row Changes):

{=IF(ISERROR(INDEX(ValidationLists!\$A\$2:\$J\$300,SMALL(IF(billto=\$A\$2,
ROW(billto)),ROW(2:2))-1,1)),"",INDEX(ValidationLists!\$A\$2:\$J\$300,SMALL(IF(billto=\$A\$2,
ROW(billto)),ROW(2:2))-1,1))}

And the column B next to the original formula reads the following (just returning one more column from the array):

{=IF(ISERROR(INDEX(ValidationLists!\$A\$2:\$J\$300,SMALL(IF(billto=\$A\$2,ROW(billto)),
ROW(1:1))-1,2)),"",INDEX(ValidationLists!\$A\$2:\$J\$300,SMALL(IF(billto=\$A\$2,
ROW(billto)),ROW(1:1))-1,2))}

It is working exactly how I want it to. The problem is it is taking 2-3 minutes. I can just get a list of rows with the value in A2 from List "billto" very quickly but then how do I get the entire row to appear in my current sheet quickly?

## Deleting Rows Where Values Are Opposite & Equal

Mar 31, 2008

I have a spreadsheeet with values in columns F:K from row 10 onwards

I need VBA code that will delete the rows where there are values opposite and equal in columns F:K from row 10 owards for eg if F10 is 10000 and K10 is -10000, F 25 is 150000 and G25 is -10000, G29 is -175000 and H29 is 175000, then rowa 10,25 & 29 must be deleted

## Concatenate Duplicates: Concatenate Results Of All Equal P/N's From Any Given List

Oct 6, 2007

I have a list of P/N's that are used in more then one location. and it's sorted by P/N's.

ColA__ColB__ColC
______Loc___PN
______1_____A
______2_____A
______3_____B
______4_____C
______5_____C

I Want to be able to put in Col A the concatenate results of all equal P/N's from any given list. Or at least select the few cells that i know are duplicates and from that copy the Location to a single Column.

ColA ColB__ColC
______Loc__PN
1,2____1___A
_______2___A
_______3___B
4,5____4___C
_______5___C

## Summing Up Opposite Numbers In A Column Based On Criteria

Jun 10, 2009

Imagine column A sorted by invoice numbers. Column B has payments applied but due to movement between unapplied cash, some numbers appear as negatives and positives for the same invoice number.

I want to have a formula which says that for each invoice number, look in column b and eliminate opposite numbers and post only unique values. Keep in mind that there may be multiple lines with the same invoice number.

For example, starting with line 5, for invoice 123, payments 400 and -400 in line 5 and 17 and payments 315 and -315 in lines 7 and 9 will zero out but any other unique payment will be picked up and displayed in column C. Lines 5 and/or 17 will be blank in column C.

## Delete Rows If Opposite Column Cell Matches

Sep 6, 2006

I have a spreadsheet that is updated daily with data that falls into one of two categories: a) completely new to the sheet or b) existing from the day before but not taken care of yet. The items which fall into category a are evaluated, and notes added to the sheet. The items in category b must be compared to the new data, and duplicated lines deleted but notes from previous evaluation must be kept on the sheet. In addition, anything on the sheet that is not included in the new information needs to be deleted. I've set up a sheet with all old and new data with dates the data showed up as well as the notes associated with the old data, and have concatenated all the info from each row into column V (from another suggestion I got on a similar but not exactly the same problem which I also still haven't figured out). The sheet has been sorted by col V so any matching rows should be within 3 or 4 rows of the original. The problem is that my code does absolutely zilch!

Sub DeleteRepeatedRows()
' goes through coord. sheet and identifies duplicated lines, copies the date from the old row
' copies it into the new line, then deletes the old line
Dim rCell As Range
For Each rCell In Selection
If rCell.Value = rCell.Offset(1, 0).Value Then
rCell.EntireRow.Delete
End If
If rCell.Value = rCell.Offset(2, 0).Value Then
rCell.EntireRow.Delete
End If.........................................

## Copy Cells To Worksheets With Worksheet Name In Opposite Cell

Aug 11, 2007

I am developing a Workbook where I import data to one worksheet and then disseminate it to other worksheets. I am not sure if I am overthinking the process, but I am having difficulty writing the macro and getting it to run through the entire list of rows.

There are 4 Columns in the one worksheet, named "Update":
Column A supplies the name of the worksheet that will be updated
Columns B-D contain the data that will update the sheets.

The process that I am trying to write the macro for is a follows:
1. Select/copy the range, starting with B1:D1 on "Update"
2. Navigate to the appropriate worksheet to be update, determined by A1
3. Identify the first blank row, starting with A5
4. Paste the data B1:D1 to A5:C5 (or next available line)
5. Navigate back to "Update" and begin the process again with the next row B2:D2

This process should continue until there is no value in Column B on the "Update" worksheet.

## Delete Opposite Rows Based On Multiple Criteria

Feb 29, 2008

I have a Macro that I use daily on a spreadsheet I get with raw line-item transaction data on it. Basically, it deletes columns I don't need to look at, applies column headers, deletes certain rows that I don't need to look at, applies an auto-filter and filters to the first group of data I need to look at, and puts a subtotal on a couple of columns at the top so I can see totals on filtered results.

I need an additional function in this Macro. At some point in the middle of the actions above, I need to evaluate all rows and delete those that are 'opposites' based on a couple of criteria. Basically, I need to delete any transactions that have been refunded in their entirety, because for my purposes those are zeroed out and I don't want to see them....

## Concatenate Non Blank Cells But Use Concatenate And Substitute Instead Of IF

Aug 11, 2013

Sampling table :

one
two
three
four
one
two
three
one
two
one

Desired results obtained via IF =IF(B2>0,A2&" , ",A2)&IF(C2>0,B2&" , ",B2)&IF(D2>0,C2&" , ",C2)&IF(D2>0,D2,"")

one , two , three , four
one , two , three
one , two
one

Is there any smarter, shorter formula via Concatenate and Substitute or other formulas ?

My closest match, but not good enaugh is =SUBSTITUTE(CONCATENATE(A2&", "&B2&", "&C2&", "&D2), ", , ", " ")
one, two, three, four
one, two, three,
one, two
one ,

## Matrix To Return Risk Rating - Array Returns Opposite Result

Nov 20, 2013

I am looking up a risk matrix to return the risk rating... it is very simple, it works on one sheet, but on a different sheet (looking up different data, but same basic format) it returns exactly the opposite rating.

My formula is: =INDEX(\$G\$6:\$K\$10,MATCH(I19,\$G\$5:\$K\$5,0),MATCH(J19,\$F\$6:\$F\$10,0))

Here is F4 to K10

I have data validation on I19 and J19 based on the cells below

Consequence

Priority
Very Low
Low
Medium
High
Very High

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

BUT... when I put Very Low and Very Low in the two cells (I19 and K19) I get Very High as the return.

## Concatenate (two Different Cells Into One)

Dec 11, 2008

I'm having a rather difficult time getting this one.

I am concatenating (is that a verb?) a bunch of cells to create an item code.
The combination of two different cells need to be able to give different values so I can dump the appropriate value into the CONCATENATE formula.

A picture is worth a thousand..

## Concatenate The Dropdown

Jun 19, 2009

I am trying to get 2 rows in one drop down without having to create another combined row. im not sure what formula should i use. I have attached an example.

## Increment Using Concatenate

Sep 2, 2009

I want to write formula in cells(many cells!) using concatenate. The desired output:

In Sheet2!D1 - i will write concatenate of Sheet1!C6 and Sheet1F6
in Sheet2!E1 - i will write concatenate of Sheet1!C7 and Sheet1F7
in Sheet2!F1 - i will write concatenate of Sheet1!C8 and Sheet1F

Copy and paste formula would not do so i created a macro stated below. The problem is a can not change the ActiveCell.Formula correction.

## Variable With Concatenate

Jan 2, 2013

I have a simple task and I use the concatenate formula to resolve alot of keystrokes. I now have an issue where I have to edit that formula because of a additional character for the string won't upload into a database. Here's my example:

1. Cell A1= 12345xxxx Cell B1= 67 Cell C1= 8

I use =CONCATENATE(A1,"-000"&B1,"-000"&C1) and my result is displayed in D1= 12345xxxx-00067-0008

Easy enough! Now adding the following is the problem:

1. Cell A2= 12345 Cell B2= 67 Cell C2= 89

I use =CONCATENATE(A2,"-000"&B2,"-000"&C2) and my result is displayed in D2= 12345xxxx-00067-00089

Now D2 has one too many characters from C2

I modify the formula by reducing to "-000"&C2 to be "-00"&C2 manually but now the line items have quadrupled and manually isn't going to work for this being so time consuming.

Is there a way to use a variable with the concatenate or am I using the wrong formula period ??

## Automatic Concatenate

Jul 9, 2009

A1 contains "=2+3+4" which shows 8 as a result. I would like to add a word "Lbs" with it so it would display "8 Lbs" on the same cell. If I entered =1+2+3 on cell A6000, it should give me "6 Lbs".

## VBA Concatenate Formula

Jul 25, 2009

I'm trying to use a macro to write a formula within a column of data.

## Concatenate 2 Column

Feb 2, 2010

i trying to merge column A1 (ABC) with column B1(XYZ), B2(LOL), B3(ROF) ..etc

with a simple =CONCATENATE(A1,"-",B1) , i can get "ABC-XYZ" , but when come to column B2 , i only can get "-LOL" , any solution ?

## CONCATENATE Not Working

Nov 2, 2006

Create a column of concatenated values to serve as a "primary key" for a compare and merge tool (Synkronizer). For some reason, the CONCATENATE function isn't being recognized.

If I enter
=CONCATENATE(A2,B2)
instead of showing the strings located in A2 and B2 it displays
=CONCATENATE(A2,B2)
in the cell.

I tried creating a new spreadsheet and it works just fine. Does anyone have an idea of what might be happening? I have compared all of the options between the two spreadsheets and don't see any difference in them.

## If / Concatenate Into One Cell

Nov 14, 2008

I have 6 columns:

A1 = LastName
B1 = FirstName
C1 = LastName2
D1 = FirstName2

I need to concatenate into 1 cell so it looks like this: FirstName LastName;FirstName2 Last Name2. Now the challenge is that there are many instances where C1 and D1 are blank (don't have values).

So here was my attempt at a formula:
=IF(A1>""&B1>"",CONCATENATE(B1," ",A1))& IF(C1>""&D1>"",CONCATENATE(";"&D1,"",C1),"")

Now this works, but it ALWAYS leaves a semi colon at the end (even when there is no C1 and D1 to concatentate. Thus I put in my IF statement the "".

## Concatenate Function..

Jan 23, 2010

What function can get me the first letter from the first name and the whole last name together and then add @email.com. Example: Hanry Jones = HJones@email.com
