Randomly Select Value Meeting Criteria From Table

Jan 17, 2007

I have a table detailing products and product options showing the options possible for each product. Each row has an option class and value(in separate columns):Color Red,Color Orange,Color Blue,Style A Style B and so on. Each product is in column.

Valid options for a product are indicated with a 1, invalid options with a 0. See attached sample file.

For instance, if the product in question is Alpha, then available colors are red and blue.

For a given product I need to return a randomly generated valid option. As I want to be able to drop in additional products and options, I want to return a value without resorting to manually generating a column containing only the valid options. The real data set amounts to dozens of options types and hundreds of parts for which I want to generate test data.

Filter Table To Show Data Meeting Wildcard Criteria

Apr 10, 2008

My goal is for any of my team members to be able to use a macro to delete all of the unwanted text from a fairly large worksheet and only show their specific information. I created it for myself and posted a slimmed down version of it below. Instead of the macro deleting any rows that do not have BRANDON SCOTT in column D, I want a pop up box to enter your name, and then any rows that do not have your name in column D will be deleted. Iím sure it is something simple, but I have not been able to find another forum with this information.

Sub MyTeam2()
With Columns("D")
. AutoFilter field:=1, Criteria1:="<>BRANDON SCOTT*"
.Resize(Rows.Count - 1).Offset(1).EntireRow.Delete
.AutoFilter
End With
End Sub

Select Fields At Randomly

Apr 11, 2008

I have a workbook with sheet 1 called Support which is basically an input form. The second sheet is called Database.

I want to enter data into the form and via a macro copy the data to the database. I have followed a text book to the letter on how this is to be completed to the letter.

My problem is that when the data is written to the database some of the fields are blank. Using F8 I can step through the VB script which appears to select fields at random.

Select Names Randomly

Apr 17, 2009

I'm trying to pull 20 random names from a list of them every time I open the spreadsheet, and have them copied onto the clipboard to be pasted wherever. I have some code I found to accomplish this, but I'm not exactly what you would call VBA savvy. Could anyone look at this and see what I'm doing wrong? Or if it is right what I'm doing wrong to get it to work?

Sub GetRandom()
Dim iRows As Integer
Dim iCols As Integer
Dim iBegRow As Integer
Dim iBegCol As Integer
Dim J As Integer
Dim sCells As String

Set TempDO = New DataObject

Randomly Select Cells Based A Couple Rules

Nov 6, 2007

I have a sheet that has 13 players listed in rows down column A. I have 6 columns each representing a quarter in a game. I was wondering what the best way would be to randomly select 5 players in each column and to distribute each cell selection as equally as possible over the 6 quarters.

So what I am doing is having excel designate equal amounts of playing time for each player each game.

Is this possible.

Can I base this off of previous games?

Randomly Select Varied Amounts Of Data From A List

Sep 10, 2008

I have a list of people in column A and a list of Cities that they have visited in column B.

I need to check some of the cities they have visited monthly but don't want to check them all.

I have attached a sheet as an example (this has been scaled down).

The number of cities i want to check for each person varies each month depending on how many cities they have visited.

For example, John has visited 16 cities and i want to check 5 of them. I therefore want 5 random cities that he has visited to appear next to his name at the top. The real list of data is massive so this would be really useful if it is possible.

I have looked at rand but i can't get it to randomly give me more than one city, and i don't understand how to get it to give me say 5 cities one month and say 8 cities the next month purely based on a formula from another cell.

Randomly Select From Alphabet Based On Letter Frequency Distribution

Jan 8, 2008

I want to randomly select letters from this distribution (to make random words) but I want the more frequent letters in the distribution to be selected more often so that the word I form have the same distribution. I have the feeling there is a simple solution to this but I couldn't see anything other than the frequency function that I thought I might be able to use. I could populate an array with letters present in numbers according to their frequency and then randomly select from it but is there a more elegant solution? .......

Create Report Table From Two Original Tables (source And Select Criteria)

Mar 31, 2014

I have two tables (Table 1 and Table 2). Table 1 has names of all employees in my organization ('Name' column) and corresponding information in the second column ('Textinfo'). I need to create Table 3 from table 1, but only select those employees who are in my team, ie matching names in the Table 2. I also need to extract corresponding 'Textingo' column information. I tried vlookup but it did not work because if there more that one name in the table 1, vlookup confuses it (i think). Would you know what function or code to use?

Sample file is attached : excel question 1.xlsx

Count Records In Table Based On Criteria - Select And Paste To New Spreadsheet

Jul 17, 2014

I have a ListObject table called Table1, and the column name is Table1[Company]. The records have been sorted A-Z for the Company.

The records look something like this

Date Employee Company
-------------------------------------------
1/1/11 Jane A Company
1/1/11 Jane B Company
3/1/11 Bob B Company
2/1/11 Bob B Company
4/1/11 Bob B Company
5/1/11 Bob C Company

What I need is a sub() to look in the column of Table1[Company] and determine:

The # of records that match the criteria given the Company name, and where they start and end. Ultimately, I'd like to copy and paste this portion of the table to another spreadsheet.

So for instance, if the Company = "B Company", then I could find out there are 4 records and there locations to copy and paste them.

Sumproduct Meeting Two Criteria?

Jun 20, 2014

I'm working on a spreadsheet at work and I'm trying to sum only the values in a column that meet criteria in the column next to it. For example, in the attached spreadsheet, I would like to have a totals line at the bottom of the spreadsheet for all three Facilities and the total next to them. I know I could do a pivot table but I know this approach would be more aesthetic and easier for my supervisor.

How To Add Cells Meeting A Criteria

Nov 12, 2012

I'm doing an assignment. This would be very simple w/ filters but I have to do it thru formulas.

I have a bunch of rows w/ various hotels. Row 14 is Rolling Meadows, Row 15 is Lakeview Apartments etc.

Near the top I have to add the number of times Rolling Meadows is mentioned, in the cell below Lakeview apartments, etc.

I tried a sumif formula but that doesnt work. How would you do this? This is what I wrote, I got 0

=SUMIF(B14:B26,"Rolling Meadows")

That's part 1. In part 2 I have to calculate the number of units in that building that are occupied.

Return Value After Meeting Criteria

Mar 26, 2013

we would like to get results from a formula that looks at several cells and provides the cost for a product.

Example

If we choose
Cell A3=Transport (from drop down list)
Cell A4=Entrance Facility (from drop down list)
Cell A5=Bandwidth (from another drop down list)
returns the cost for this product in cell A6

We would also like to restrict the lists to the different catergories: if transport is selected you only have the option of 2 of 5 facility types that will work with transport products. Do I need to separate my lists?

Sum Data Meeting 2 Criteria

Oct 6, 2006

I need to get the sum of a column where two conditions have to be met. I have tried doing something like: Sum(Sum(AND(V1:V1500="BEBLT", H1:H1500=17) +-Sum(AND(V514:V1512= "NVLIV", H514:H1512=17)))

In a nutshell I want to find the difference between the sum of a column whose criteria is 17 and BEBLT and the sum of another column whose criteria is 17 and NVLIV. This has been extremely frustrating since I am using SQL commands to pull the info from the workbook. Typically I would use

"Select SUM(Z) from Sheet1$ WHERE (H1:H1500=17 AND V1:V1500);"

Unfortunately for me my SQL command brings back an error so I must resort to finding the total in excel and then using the command to bring it into my VBA.

Sum Numbers Meeting Criteria

May 27, 2007

I'm trying to use the SUmif with Offset, but the width argument of offset doesn't
seem to work within the SumIf function. I have 14 columns

A Employee
B department
C-N jan through dec salaries per employee per month

41 rows

1 titles
2-41 names of employees


now in May I want to know the salaries per department for the month may only, but also cummulative from jan up to may. Getting may per department works fine, but getting the cummulative doesn't seem to be working

=SumIf(B2:B40;"account";offset(C2;;4)) gives me the sum of department
Account in the month of May
=SumIf(B2:B40;"account";offset(C2;;;;4)) starting point zero (= january) plus 4
columns width, just gives me January.

I've tried several options, but every time he only sums 1 column. Without the SumIf it works fine but for the whole company, not per department ofcourse.

Sum Column Meeting Criteria`

how a SUMPRODUCT function can resolve this. In this sample I want to have 1120-32188 & 1120-32188W be treated the same for the Total sum qty. In this case =10.
This will compute but how do I include items in column A that have 'W' suffixes for computing Total Qty? Formula: =IF(A2=A1,"",SUMPRODUCT(($A$2:$A$100=A2)*($C$2:$C$100)))

Sum Cells Meeting Criteria

Aug 9, 2007

I have an Excel sheet with 3 worksheets. On the first sheet I want to enter a formula that will check the third sheet. On the third sheet I need to compare all the entries in column N with a value in Cell B2 of the front sheet. If these match then I need the formula to add up the relevant values in column N. (column N has a 4 letter code, I am only interested in comparing the first letter, as such the value in cell B2 is H*, then in column U it has numbers of minutes, I want a total of the minutes of all those entries with a code that begins with H)

SUM Of Data Meeting Many Criteria

Mar 27, 2008

What I have is 4 columns of data broken down as follows Column A = Date Range B = Name C = City D = Amount of People.

What I want to achieve is to be able to go through my list of data and for all rows that match specifically matches A,B,C it will total column D and output to a cell. I also need for it to reflect the name somehow .. so in attached example A2-C2 matches A8-C8 so I would need the output of D8 + A8 (which should be 54) but I need for this to some how reflect a name combination City + Name. So I would know that abc & California have 54 people and that def and New York have 56.

I have attached a basic spread sheet of data; keeping in mind that in the complete data there could be hundreds of combinations for data to be matched.

Sum Of Week-to-date If Meeting Criteria

Nov 6, 2009

On the attached file, I would like the values from the Transactions worksheet to show up in the appropriate cells in the XYZ Expenses worksheet. The catch is, I would like the XYZ Expenses worksheet to only show the values from the past week. Past week could be literally, but I'm guessing that might not be possible and it would have to use the past week from the most recent transaction date - which would be fine. So if it worked right, XYZ Expenses > F7 would show -$80, which would be from Transactions H3+H6 (and not -$130, from Transactions H3+H6+H9).

Copy Values Meeting A Criteria

Sep 28, 2006

im trying to set my workbook up so that it is updating itself daily. Currently it has about 4000 rows of invoices from multiple departments. What I want is a formula that when an invoice reaches 31 days that it goes to a separate worksheet. I don't want it deleted, I just want it to be moved in to a worksheet called 'WatchList'.

Any body know how this can be done. What Ive done right now only puts the row in the same row from the main sheet. So if row 2000 reaches 31, it shows up on row 2000 in 'WatchList'. Im wondering how I can move row 2000 to the top and whatever other row to the top once it reaches 31.
