Preventing Duplicates When Entering Data

Jan 1, 1970

THis looks close to what I have been trying to find for months but what if I want to delete duplicates after pasting instead of making an error code? For instance, I have a list of names and addresses and I want to delete any entire row with a duplicate address.

Preventing Off Retrieve Data Multiple Times?

Mar 6, 2014

Current program i use follows these steps:

-Empty cells

-Remove comments

- Fill Headers

- Retrieve Data (From the path Results (a subdirectory))

- Sort on date and time (column D)

My Problem: The programma now used retrieves every file in the subdirectory again and again.
If it has like 100-200 files it takes a very long time.

Is it possible to make a function for this that only retrieves files when the filename is not imported already? (Title is in the D Column)

Wish: a function that retrieves only the required data and skips measuring data thats already there.

Preventing Manual Data Entry Errors

Mar 21, 2009

how to protect my spreadsheet from data entry errors.

I have a column of data that must be entered manually (column B). Sometimes, the entry in column B could have been calculated by running a formula run upon the data in column A. Sometimes it has to be entered manually.

Is there a way to use data validation or conditional formatting to make sure that the proper figure is entered into column B when it could have been calculated by a formula to avoid data errors?

Preventing Pasting Of Data Over Cells With Validation Lists

Aug 31, 2006

I've got a table that has to be manipulated by multiple users. Within the table I have several column ranges with validation lists (in drop down boxes) in order to limit responses. However, I'm finding that most of the users are pasting data in from other sources that may not have been in the validation list, or may be in a different format, etc., and it essentially undermines the reason for using the validation.

I've tried protecting the sheets using various options and tried looking around online for a solution, but I'm not finding how to get around this.

Multiple Data Validations (List And Preventing Duplicate Selection)

Jun 30, 2014

I have created a Data Validation list in one of my spreadsheets which works fine. The list itself has no duplicates which is fine but when I select my entries in the other spreadsheet, I want to make sure they cannot select the same value twice.

I tried selecting "List" in data validation and using an AND with COUNTIF but it doesn't work.

=AND(Employees, countif($A$1:$A$20,A1)=1)

Entering Data Into Cells

Aug 19, 2009

I'm building a database which I intend to upload to an ecommerce website. I am retrieving information on some of our products from the manufacturer's website. The information appears on the manufacturer's website as follows:

Part No : DP9970

* Description : Disc Pads
* Manufacturer : Trupart
* Unit Of Sale : Boxed Set
* Width (mm): 130
* Height (mm): 62
* Thickness (mm): 19
* Note: 4 pads with top clip

When I copy and paste this info into excel, it gives each individual line of information a separate cell. I need the information to appear in one cell in order for it to display properly on my website.

Entering Data Automatically

May 19, 2009

I have two files which are attached.

One is the main report file "ops report.xls" and other is the raw file (Air.xlsx) from which data is to be added to this file. i manually take the data and enter it into the ops report everyday. This i want to automate as there are many such sheets to be completed (i have mentioned just "Air" sheet here in ops report).

Now what exactly i want to do is?

take data from Air.xlsx workbook as per the columns in the Air sheet in Ops report and paste it on that particular date row. this i will have to do everyday so the nest day the data will be pasted on next row against the date. The yellow columns which i have marked have formula so you need not touch that columns.

I nee to paste the average of Air sales and Air service. so we have to take average of row 43 and row 89 for first two columns in ops report. and then average of row 44 and row 90 for column L,N,O,P,Q in the ops report.

Afterwards the average of column J must be pasted in "Interval" sheet in ops report.

This is a bit tough but i know there are many genius people out there who can easily solve this.

Entering Data In A Cell

Jan 5, 2007

Earlier this morning I had a telephone call from a customer who uses a spreadsheet I created.

She explained that once she'd entered information into a cell [and clicked elsewhere] she couldn't then add to the former; rather, she had to click on the cell and type it all out again.

I assumed that, as an inexperienced excel user, she was unware of either double-clicking the cell, or selecting and pressing F2. I explained these methods to her.

She later emailed me with this:

"Further to our phone conv this morning I have just tried double-clicking on cells but it deletes everything in the cell rather than lets you edit what is there – F2 does the same thing. This applies to any cell, whether it is text, date or number."

I've been using excel for a while now, and I've never come across such a thing before.

Has anyone else? Could it be to do with her own excel settings? (other customers have had no such problem)

Entering Data On Websites

Jul 14, 2006

I have a basic script in VBA set up to enter standard information (street address in one block and city in another) on a website that has no fees or password requirements. If I step through the code using F8, this works great and the website returns the data for the address that was input from my excel sheet. However, when I assign this same macro to a control button on the excel sheet to get the code to run automatically, the website comes up to the default screen with nothing entered in either of the blanks. Again, when I just step through this, I get all the way to the output page on the website with the resulting data from my input data. For some reason, this does not happen using the same code connected to a button for automation purposes.

I have a spreadsheet with multiple formulas in several columns - my staff will be using this spreadsheet to enter data throughout the year so it will be constantly touched by several users. Some of the columns are hidden, but I worry about someone sorting something funky or deleting or adding a row. Any way to protect the columns I have formulas in while still allowing them to enter data in the rest of the spreadsheet?

Entering Data From Top / Beginning Of List

Feb 10, 2012

I am trying to create a list of customer credits for my store. I have the person's name, the date of their credit, and the amount of the credit. This list will eventually be substantial and I would like to know how I can set it up so that when I open the worksheet I can enter new names from the top of the list and have the rest of the list shift downwards. This would stop me from having to scroll to the very bottom to add new info every time.

I would like to have it set up this way so that eventually I could put a search query at the top of the page (i'm thinking of rigging something up using vlookup) so that when my employees want to access the data base they can easily search a name and have the relevant info brought up, or can easily type in new store credits.

Mark Cells For Entering Data

Oct 4, 2007

Can I add something to a cell and have it so it does not print?

I need to mark certian cells to have data filled in, in those cells. However if data is not put in those cells I need them to be blank when printed.

I can put text in B7:
Enter Name Here

Then the user knows to put the name in that spot. If there is no name to be entered then I want to be sure that is not printed when I print the list.

Is any of this a possibility without putting 33 different labels on the page, which is one way. Or 33 different comments on the page, another way.

Prevent Entering In Wrong Data

Aug 6, 2008


Above is what I hav already, I was thinking it would help if each card had an additional field added that told you if the contents were valid. This could also say empty if all fields were blank. This field could for example use an if statement to check that you have entered a VS, a start date a project name. It could also check that if you have entered a completion date you also enter review loops. This could be in large red text so it is obvious to someone completing a card that they have not yet filled in all necessary data.

Skip Column When Entering Data Via Userform

Aug 3, 2014

I have a spread sheet that is populated via a Userform. I have arrived at a problem where I don't know how to write the Code so as to Skip Column B i.e.

Column A Column B Column C Column D Column E Column F
List of Activities
Planned End

HQ DLC0001
Campaign Plan

From the text Box I fill Serial, List of Activity, Owner Environment, Planned Start, Planned End.

Column B - ID - Is a unique ID that is created via a formula.

How can I add a line to the code below so that the User form skips Column B and only places the in putted data into Columns A, C, D, E and F.

Option Explicit
Dim id As Integer, i As Integer, j As Integer, flag As Boolean

Sub GetData()

Entering Text Box Data Into Next Empty Cells

Mar 1, 2014

I am caught in an areas where I have learned how to find the next available empty row by going far down my worksheet, counting up until I reach a filled row and then offsetting that value by 1 as seen here below:

NextRow = Sheet1.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row

My difficulty lies in assigning the cells in this empty row the data a user can input in my text boxes; let's say there are 4 text boxes which need to be put into the following cells:

Text box 1 (Text value) needs to be assigned next empy cell in column: AText box 2 (Text value) needs to be assigned next empy cell in column: B (1 offset away from A)Text box 3 (Numeric value) needs to be assigned next empy cell in column: F (5 offsets away from A)Text box 4 (Numeric value) needs to be assigned next empy cell in column: H (7 offsets away from A).

How would I go about using my identified "NextRow" and then plug in these text box values into their appropriate cells down that row?

Entering Data In 1st Blank Cell In Specific Row

Mar 5, 2014

I have created a form where a date and remark is added every few days. I am using Phone Number as the base of VLookup. I want a code so that the date and remark which is entered in a Text Box, is stored in the first available blank cell pertaining to that employee. I want the first date and remark to be under "Date 1" and "Remark 1".

Thereafter, if another remark is subsequently added for that employee, the form would ask to enter his phone number to identify which employee the remark pertains to. Then the Text Box where remark is entered should be stored under "Remark 1" if there has been no remark before, "Remark 2" if "Remark 1" already exists, "Remark 3" if "Remark 2" already exists and so on.

I do not want to enter it in a new row. I want to enter the remark in the next blank cell of the row which matches the employee Phone Number.

Entering, Formatting & Manipulating Data Using Macros

Apr 11, 2008

I would like to give credit and thanks to StephenR for producing the current Macros in use on this spreadsheet.

This was to sort out Raw Data that I get from a database, and with lots of help sort it and format so for a history of this you can look there.

Now I need to enter in some formulas, data from another spreadsheet and cell formatting…

Unsure if all this is possible but am hoping some of it is…

First Thing
The column Run Time has the data in them already this is the time in minutes am looking for a way to put a formula in, that will make them into hours so the formula will read like this “=180/60” this will give the number 3 as the whole number.

Second Thing
Using the whole number that the formula made in the Run Time column, am looking to fill cells with colour, too see what I mean here its best to take a look at my mock up spreadsheet.

Third Thing
Two rows below all the data that gets sorted out I would like to put in two totals, one for Run Time and another for Available Hrs “=SUM (Range)”

Forth Thing
I have data in another spreadsheet that is the Resrce Name, and Available hrs am looking to take that data from this spreadsheet that will be closed opened if needed, this data will assign workers to Work Centres.
I would like this to be a separate macro to run though all the sheets if possible.
