Quick Way To Find And Highlight Multiple Rows?

Feb 14, 2014

I have a very large spreadsheet (46,000 rows). There are a couple hundred rows I need to find and highlight, and also insert potentially-linked contract numbers in a second column.

For example:

Column 1: Column 2:
Contract # Linked Contract #
12345 67890

Is there a quick way to do this without using find and replace to highlight all several hundred of these rows? I have an hour and a half until I leave work and my boss wants it today! Compounded is the problem that there are about 100 versions of this spreadsheet I need to do this for.

Highlight Rows Meeting Multiple Column Criteria

Apr 17, 2008

I have a large file of invoices, and some have been paid. The problem is, sometimes it is not paid against the correct invoice, so I have a lot of credit and debit that should offset each other. I want to go through the sheet and highlight all the rows that has a matching ID and an a 0 value when total amount column was added up to another row. I would like it so that it highlights a different color for every pair of offsetting amount, but the same color highlight is fine too.

Macro To Find A Number In Multiple Rows

Oct 10, 2009

Sheet A – is of the following format

SlNO, Item_Description, …,…

The item_description is a combination of XXX, Part_no and Part_description all clubbed randomly. ( So I cannot use text-to-columns to bifurcate them).

Now Sheet B contains the part_number as follows :

SlNos, Part_no, ….,….,

I need a macro ( a procedure / function ) in Excel-vba, which would select each part_no in sheet – B one by one, find all those rows in which it appears in Item_Description column of Sheet-A and add a comment in the next column to it.

The Vlookup function cannot be used as it is not an exact match as the part_no is embedded among other things in item_description.

Find Specific Text In Multiple Rows / Columns And Align All Vertically To Same Column

Apr 25, 2013

I have a macro that converts all my PDF Purchase Orders to a text file and inserts the data/text horizontally into another document. However because the PDF's or the text within the PDF can be fomatted differently (that is on different lines etc) it therefore imports the information and it looks mis-aligned.I have attached a simple spreadsheet showing some sample text as it is imported and then below this how it should look like, all in line.

The range where the highlighted text in red is, is variable (but say nothing more than a variant of 10 columns). The text can also be Uppercase or Lowercase.So, I was wondering if there is macro code to find the "text" on various rows/columns and align it all in another column?

Find And Highlight Text ...

Oct 10, 2007

Each cell in Range AL3..AL50000 have text (sentence - description of problem).

Cell AL1 has my search word (i.e. loose)

I would like to search range AL3..AL5000 for word "Loose" - if found highlight every cell where was found - Yellow.

If AL1 is empty - remove all highlights.

Here is what I have so far (patches of codes found in this forum)

Sub FindTextInCell()

Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim myText As String

myText = Sheets("detail_report").Range("AL1").Value

If myText = "" Then Exit Sub

Set Found = Range("AK2..AK56000").Find(What:=myText, LookIn:=xlValues, lookAt:=xlPart, MatchCase:=False)

If Not Found Is Nothing Then

Found.Interior.ColorIndex = 36

End If
End Sub

My code highlights only first found cell and if I type any other search word - highlight from the 1st search does not get removed.

Please be noted that I don't only want it to search and highlight the number in its respective order, but also every one of its possible arrangement.

Highlight Selected Cell When Using FIND

I have a worksheet with lots of data on it, resulting in a very busy layout. I have been using "FIND" to search for various numbers within the spreadsheet, however often times it is hard to see which cell "FIND" selects.

Is there a way to enable Excel to highlight the selected cell? For example could "Find" turn the cell yellow when it finds a match?

Macro To Find Unique Values And Highlight Them?

Apr 9, 2009

Is there a way i can have a macro find the unique values in these 3 columns and highlight them yellow.

They should find uniques using all 3 columns, not find them within each column.

I included a file which shows what i start off with and what it needs to look like. Also if it matters the contents in the cells are from links. ( i know that matters because you have to put look in values in the code ).

VBA Code To Find Dups, Highlight Them With Different Colors, Pretty Complicated

Aug 29, 2008

I'm trying to find some vba code that will find dups on my worksheet and highlight them in a special way: first dup = bright yellow, second dup = bright green, third dup = bright red, and if there is a forth, fifth or sixth dup, then just increment color number to next one, than next, etc...

I would like for the code to run as soon as there is a change on the worksheet (when I finish entering data in a row). I think I already have the right code to do that:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("E9:E10000")) Is Nothing Then
Call dupSearch
End If
End Sub
I tested it out, seems to work as it should.

My major problem is that I need the code to check column F9:F10000 and compare the cells all along that column. That column concatenates 3 other cells in that same row (lastname&firstname&employee#), so if I run my dupSearch on that column only, I should find only real dups, and not just 2 people with the same name.

I also need to make sure it doesn't find empty cells, thinking they are dups. I would like to highlight column A to E of the row that contains the dup, and not just the cell in column F.

I have tried many other codes that I have found on the forum, but none of them work right with what I'm trying to do, and I just don't know enough VBA to make the changes I need.

Find Columns By Name And Highlight Them Certain Colors Based On Text In Another Column

Jul 9, 2009

I have a worksheet with 20+ columns. For this macro, I only need to focus on 4 of them. However, none of these columns are ever in a fixed position so the macro would need to find them by name and NOT by column position. Here they are...

1. Vacation Type (will only have a text value of either "Cold" or "Warm")

2. Vacation Started (will always have a date *x/xx/xxxx)

3. Vacation Ended (sometimes it will have a date '*x/xx/xxxx' and sometimes it will NOT have a date and will be truly blank)

4. Number of Days (currently has ALL truly blank cells)


Here's what I would like the macro to do...

Scenario 1 - for "Cold" values
Find "Cold" text values in the "Vacation Type" column
"Cold" values WITH a date in the "Vacation Ended" columnIF there IS a date in the "Vacation Ended" column in the same row, put the number of days difference between the "Vacation Started" column and "Vacation Ended" column in the "Number of Days" column.

The amount of days in the "Number of Days" column will determine whether these cells should be highlighted GREY or RED.

A) IF the number of days difference is 7 days or less, highlight the cells in the "Vacation Ended" column and "Number of Days" column RED.

Macro To Highlight Rows

Feb 8, 2012

Can this be automated?

I have an excel sheet called "Summary Tab" where I highlight specific rows that has the largest variances for the month. And, then within the same workbook I have about 10 different sheets which has more info regarding the accounts hightlighted in the "Summary Tabs".

For example, the following accounts were hightlighted in grey in the summary tab.

-------- Column A

Row 1 -- Training

Row 5 -- Printing Expense

Row 9 -- Travel Expense

Row 12 -- Telephone Expense

Now, i have to highlight the same accounts in Prior Yr, Current Yr, Detail tab...etc (all of the sheets in the workbook has different row for training, printing...etc

I tried recording this but it doesn't work like it should because each month the variance could be different.
