Pulling Data From Repeating Cell Pattern?

Jun 6, 2014

I have a weather graph I am putting together for fun and cannot figure out a way to bring data in for a table based on a consistent data pattern. My high temp averages are in column C along with other annual averages (High (Cell C7), annual avg. (Cell C9), low (Cell C8), precip (Cell C10) etc.) for that year, my data will go back 50 years. I am trying to find a formula that will bring the temp data into another column so I can create a graph of just the high temps or precipitation or any other measure. I have color coded the cells I am looking for.

Essentially, I am hoping that in column H, I will have a year (2014 for example) and column I will search for a match between column A and H (year), if a match is found, it will bring in data from that year for a specific category (Temp for example). OR, another option would be to to skip the cells and just pull in data from the cell (High temps would be in cell C7, C18, C29, C40 etc.) through a =C7+11 (cell count, not adding to number result) type of formula.

how to do this?

Random Pattern Is Repeating

Apr 12, 2007

I made a code that automatically checks the date and then compares it to the date of the last save. If it is a new date then the colors of the tabs will randomize. It can also be done manually via a button. The problem is that I have now realized that the colors are always have the same pattern. Every day the first color is an orange color, no matter how many times I randomized yesterday...and so on. Is there a way to make the randomness not have a repeating pattern?

Sub MMVII_4_9_b()
Dim NewDate
If Sheets("Scrappaper"). Range("F2") = Date Then
NewDate = 0
Else
NewDate = 1
End If
'Determines whether it is a new day or not
Sheets("Scrappaper").Range("F2") = Date
If NewDate = 0 Then
'Does nothing if the date is the same
Else

Parse Through A Column Of Numbers And Find A Repeating Pattern

Mar 13, 2009

I need a function or VB code to parse through a column of numbers and find a repeating pattern. The column has some initial numbers that do not fit the pattern and I need those returned along with the repeating pattern.

Fill Handle Pattern (not Finding My Pattern)

Jan 31, 2007

Pre-requisite: I would consider myself to be very poor with excel, based on what I've read on this forum and found on my web-searches. I have a worksheet that has a list of data on the left going vertically, then a summary of this data going horizontally across the top. It is not arranged in such a way that transposing the data will do what I want. I am pulling the 5th word out of the title of each block of the vertical data and need to show this word on the horizontal section.

When I use this formula to pull the 5th word: =MID(MID(MID(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4),1,256), FIND("^",SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4)),256),2,FIND(" ",MID(MID(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4),1,256),FIND("^",SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4)),256))-2)

I need to increase A2 to A30, then A58 (up by 28 every time) in every instance in that formula. The fill handle increases the values by 1, instead of 28 (even if I do 3 or 4 instances manually) How do I do this? I've run into this problem in other scenarios, and there HAS to be a way to get around it.

Jul 24, 2013

I have a sheet with 22,000 rows 6 columns of sales data from my Amazon sales each order has between 3-6 rows. When the data comes in from Amazon some of those rows wont have my sku in the sku cell. Since i use a pivot table to summarize all my sales I need a way to pull the sku from the order number that has it. I have attached a picture of my problem.

Pulling Data From List If Cell Blank Then Move To Next

Apr 16, 2009

Trying to pull data from a list and if the cell above is empty then pull the data from the cell below and so on........

I have some code for it..but its just a little bit too long and I can't use it

This is what i have so far, trying to simplify it as its way to long to fit in a singel cell....i did think about breaking it down in to collums of either 8 or 6 and having it in chunks that way...but if i did that then i would still have to eventually use this forumla below as i don't really want huge gaps within the form i'm doing.

Include Line Breaks When Pulling Data From Another Cell?

Nov 17, 2013

I've made a spreadsheet for tracking sales/profits and keeping a record of orders, I have made a table on one sheet listing customers, and I have a table on another sheet with a Customer column, with cells linked to the table of customers on the other sheet, The cells in the customer column are set to display a drop-list from the external customers table, but when I select a customer, all of the cell data that's pulled in, is written on one line, whereas it has line breaks on the customers list sheet,

Is there a way of getting the list value to display with line breaks, like on the sheet it pulls the values from?

Excel 2010 :: Pulling Cell Values Into URL When Using Get External Data From Web?

Feb 20, 2014

I am using Excel 2010. I am trying to make a spreadsheet where I can type in a date (02-19-2014), and pull in box scores from a basketball website. I have everything set up so that the date is parsed into (3) cells (02 19 and 2014) so that it can easily fit into the URL:

[URL]

As you can see, the month value in the URL is "02" the day value is "19" and the year value is "2014". What I want to be able to do is type in any date I want and return the box scores from that day in a new tab. I have everything done so that the new tab is automatically created and named, so my only issue is that I can't figure out how to input the day, month and year values automatically into the code for the Get External Data pull:

Code:
, Destination:=Range("\$A\$1"))

Index And Match With Repeating Values Without Repeating First Found Name

Apr 20, 2006

sorting data I use in a workbook for athletics. I've really chopped down my workbook for upload, In the worksheet "Leaderboard" I can call up stats for different lifts, and it finds (in this case) the top 5 lifts and the names for the kids that have those corresponding lifts.

My problem is that when two or more kids have the same lift, it will only call up the name of the first instance of that lift. You can see this in the "Leaderboard" worksheet, and the name "Adams, Andrew" appears for both lifts of 75. I would appreciate any help on how to correct this, as I've searched the Internet for weeks now looking for a solution. I've tried experimenting with different things as well, all to no avail.

Count Pattern Of Data Repeated Within Array?

Suppose I have the following data in column A from A1 to A12

Pass
Pass
Pass
Pass
Exceed
Fail
Fail

I want two formulas one to count the how many times the following pattern of data have been repeated in the range:

1- Exceed after Pass
2- Exceed before pass

Extracting Data Based On Alphanumeric Pattern?

Jul 3, 2013

I have a column of data that contains text such as 'as per A3', 'B4 requested' and 'as per F6 Mark' (these aren't cell references).

I'm trying to find a formula that will just strip out the 'A3', 'B4' and 'F6' element of the text. I've tried SEARCH with wildcards but it's not working, and can;t use the LEFT RIGHT or MID functions due to the inconsistent data.

Cell Pattern Palette

Jul 28, 2006

Is it possible to change the borders/pattern of a single cell so that it looks like the image in the attached document? This may seem a strange thing to want to do, but there is a good reason! Merged cells will not suit my purpose. The pattern palette allows a cell to be filled with horizontal lines, but I need there to be just two lines (i.e. dividing a single cell into three boxes).

Extract Pattern From A Cell

Dec 18, 2007

I'm trying to write 'user-defined' function in Excel, that doing following:

Getting two arguments: cell and 'like' pattern (_ _ , *, e.t.c).

As a result returns data that match this pattern.

For example:

1. Cell = "golf car is really comfort", pattern = "_ _ _ _" will return "golf"
2. Cell = "toyota is number one", pattern = " num*" will return "number one"

How To Find Matching Pattern And Retrieve Data From Adjacent Column

Jun 1, 2014

I need to find and match patterns of strings in a column and fetch data from the adjacent column. I've attached a sample workbook with my sample data.

How can I find the appropriate matching pattern and fetch and fill data from the adjacent column from my source table to destination? I tried the string functions available and used SEARCH function to match the pattern and check whether it is available. However, when the pattern is found, how can I fetch the adjacent column ?

My attempt to code a formula using SUBSTITUTE, MID and SEARCH functions. Below is the monster formula I wrote - it works and returns 1 when the pattern is found.

Formula:

I need to return the matching pattern that is found. And with it the corresponding adjacent cell's value.

Enter Fixed Data Pattern Based On User Input

Jun 21, 2012

I've been going round in circles with this for hours and have got no-where. I 'm trying to get Excel to paste in a set pattern of data based on an input cell.

In row 1 I have months starting in cell B1. B1 = April 12, C1 = May 12, D1 = June 12, and so on

The user would enter the data in column A, starting in row 2

If the date in A2 = May 12 then Excel would enter 10 in cell C2, 20 in cell D2 and 30 in cell E2. If the date in A2 is changed to June 12, then the previous data would be cleared and Excel would enter 10 in E2, 20 in F2 and 30 in G2.

Date would be entered in A3, A4, A5 etc and I would want it to post the same fixed data depending on the date the user enters in teh relevant row.

I've tried IF statements and also some code but can't even get near it working.

Extract A Fill Pattern From A Cell Comments Field

Jun 21, 2008

I have a file where comments are used for some cells. The user does not insert any text into these comments fields, but uses the comments feature to display pictures.

A picture is used for the fill pattern of the cell (inserted through fill effects) and that picture is what is displayed when someone moves the mouse over the cell.

The "fill pattern picture" becomes part of the excel file and my question is how can I extract this picture and use it somewhere else.

Data Validation And Non-Repeating Entries

Apr 18, 2014

I'm trying to create a questionnaire and in each question you got to rank the answers 1, 2, 3 and 4 according to your preferences.

So I'm trying to use data validation to allow ranges between 1 and 4 and at the same time I'm trying to use =countif(\$B\$20:\$H\$20,B20)=1 to prevent repeating selections but my problem is that with the data validation tool I can only select one of those options either allowing whole numbers between 1 - 4 or allowing custom and using =countif(\$B\$20:\$H\$20,B20)=1.

Is there a way to do both?

Skip Repeating Rows Of Data

Nov 25, 2013

I would like to know how do I skip a row if the data in that row is the same as previous rows?

Say I have a column of names, and John is in row 1 and 5, and I want to store this column of names in array, but I dont want to have two Johns inside it. How do I skip row 5 then?

Transpose Rows Of Data With Repeating Reference Point?

Jun 27, 2014

I have a set of data, for example:

Code Manager Level
abc 123 ab1
def 456 cd2

What I need is to create output that looks like this:

A B C

abc Manager 123
abc Level ab1
def Manager 456
def Level cd2

So essentially for each code, I need two separate rows that say what heading and the value is.

How To Return First Two Words Of Cell Without Repeating And Then Sum

May 2, 2014

I have a column of repeating names with ids (column A) and money they earned (column b) and would like to output a sum for each name (which is the first two words of every cell) for the total amount of individual earned money.

Pulling Data From A Tab

Jun 10, 2009

i want it to change the Header in E1 to the name of that price level and have the prices change according to that price level. The price level prices are currently being pulled from another tab through vlookups which lookups up the part numbers. My method only works with 1 price level right now and have no clue how to approach it with more then one price level. Also these part numbers will change positions and locations and are not permanent hence why i thought to use a vlookup.

Is there a way macro wise ( preferably through a formula ) that i can have Column E prices change according to the Price Level Entered.

Adds A Consecutive Digit To A Repeating Cell Value?

Mar 12, 2014

I have the following code which adds a consecutive digit to a repeating cell value in:

=a2&countif(\$A\$2:A2,A2)

So, this formula has put in cell B2. This means, that if if A2:A5=1 for each row, then B2=11, B3=12, B4=13, etc.

What I'm trying to do is put "-" between the original value and the extra digit. So, B2 would instead look like 1-1, B3=1-2, B4=1-3, etc.

Cell Format For Partial Repeating Number

Sep 19, 2006

I have an excel sheet that we need to type in an account number it always starts with 8774100 then has 9 more numbers. If I leave it on number formating it always changes the last number to 0 so I format the cell as TEXT. Anyway is there a way to get the 8774100 to automatically go in and only have to type the last 9 numbers? I know I can copy paste but then I have to double click or make sure I enter the last 9 numbers at the end or use the top entry. The data entry people just want to hit enter and go from line to line fast. In the past I just divided the cell into 2 cells and made the 8774100 in column A and columb B was the ending 9 numbers. But they need to be in the same cell.

Pulling Data From Dates?

Aug 6, 2014

In the little chart on the left, I have the customer name, when their story is due, and when it was completed. On the right, I want to show how many words per hour my journalist is averaging for each week. What I'd like to do in cells J2 through J5 is to have a formula that pulls out the total number of words written for all projects that occurred during that time frame. I can't seem to figure out the formula, though. I was thinking that I needed an array formula starting with ifferror and calling from the row functions, but I can't seem to get it to work out right.

Here's my sample sheet: sample data journalists.xlsx

Pulling Data From A List

Mar 16, 2009

I am trying to create a spreadsheet which will help us analysis the sale of each of the inventory items.

Col A: Item #
Col B: Description of Item
Col C: Standard COGS
Col D: Price

On Sheet 1(Standard), I listed all 205 items with columns b-e also being filled in.

On Sheet #2(Actual Sold), I want to just enter the Item # and have all the other info on Col B - Col E fillied in automatically.

Pulling Data From One Spreadsheet Into Another?

May 27, 2013

What I am trying to do is pull data from one spread sheet into another. The Data spread sheet has 2 columns. Date and Price. What I need to do is enter a date in to row b2 (example 2/13/2013) Then Cells c2-v2 fill in with the data from the 20 days prior to 2/13/2013. Also note that I use only dates from weekdays.

Pulling Data Out Of A Table

Jul 16, 2008

I have a 4 columned table with 10000 rows

Entry # Correlation Index1 Index2

10000

I want to be able to create tables out of this where I can pull all line items with correlation > 0.8 or <0.1 or <0.3 etc.

I think a macro will have to be written for this.
