I am currently working on creating a dialogue which will allow the user to input a range of worksheets to use for a pivot table.
I want the user to be able to input a variable into the dialogue. For example, I want the input "n-5 - n-1" to mean the 6th from last to the 2nd from last sheets. I am trying to find n - ([0-9]+)? and replace it with Worksheets.Count - $1. In other words, if there are 10 sheets, I want to transform "n-5 - n-1" into "5 - 9".
Here is the code I have so far:
This has been working for strings like "n" or "n-4" but not "4 - n-3" or "n-5 - n-1".
Here is the code I use afterwards to interpret the string once the n's have been replaced:
I want to be able to use a macro to read cells from a certain column so that it will evaluate a text string untill it hits a blank space, then copy the text that it found. I'd like it to work on Excel 2003 or later
Is there any way to remove the first part of a string of text in a cell and save the second part?
The first part of the text string is a team code that has a variable number of numbers, capital letters and sometimes spaces. The second part of the text string is a variable number of words in a team name that all start with a capital letter and have lower case letters. Every line has a different team code and team name.
The original spreadsheet also has a column with just team code. Is there a way of using this column to "subtract" the team code from the text string to just leave the team name?
formula that will pull out the number preceding the * 60 in the text below? In this particular case I would be looking to get 5 as the result. That number could be any number but in the example below it happens to be a 5.
Channel Tune Duration in Seconds} (ID) >= (5 * 60))
What I want to do is sum all the values after the / for a particalur value before the /:
A 8 B 4
I already tried VLOOKUP, but this function wants you to point to a certain cell to return instead of a just a part of the cell. It should return 5 for the first row to be able to perform a sum for every value of A.
How can I perform such a calculation without having to copy the values to separate cells? Can I contain all of this in one function?
Im sure this cant be done because it defies the logic of the LOOKUP function but I know there are some clever people on here so i thought id ask!!
I have 2 workbooks containing similar data from 2 different sources; the one common data item in both is a clients address but have the age old problem of data quality, which needs sorting eventually but i need a quick fix!
In workbook one for example the address will be recorded as RUSKIN RD
In workbook two the address will be recorded as RUSKIN ROAD
A simple look up wont work obviously as the 2 values dont match, then i thought of using the LEFT function but again this goes against the logic of the VLOOKUP.
I have a list of data that populates B2:B2900 This data is often prefixed by a 'reference code' that I wish to be removed. Now rater than perform this manually aprox 3000 times is there a formula or some VB code that will complete this for me....
The list of data is shown like:
SC7547-05 - Payne, Freda SC8706-08 - Rungren, Todd SC8714-05 - Travis, Randy SC7517-03 - Beach Boys, The Love Song Now You're Gone SC7512-01 - Horton, Johnny SC8721-15 - Journey
So I wish for the SC7547-05 - to be removed from the first example to just leave Payne, Freda and continue this throughout the list However if the data is found not to include this code (as in the 5th/6th examples above) leave it alone
So if the code of formula is run for the above the outcome would be....
Payne, Freda Rungren, Todd Travis, Randy Beach Boys, The Love Song Now You're Gone Horton, Johnny Journey
I need to take out the number in the middle, from the period to the space. The number varies in length so just using the mid function doesn't work. Does anyone know how to modify the mid function to return all chars between the period and the space or is there some other function that may work?
If I have a store number (say 1234) and I am trying to search for something which contains 1234 (i.e. the whole string of ABCD1234, ABCD1235, ABCD1236 etc) is it possible to do this in one VLOOKUP formula?
One way of doing it would be to VLOOKUP("ABCD"&"1234",....) but I would rather do it the other way around, to prevent the formula from not working.
I have a conditional formula which gives a value based on what the User specifies.
Example of formula is:
=IF($B$1=0,"CONTACT PERSON - OPTIONAL",IF($B$1=5,"CONTACT PERSON (FINANCE ONLY) - MANDATORY",""))
If the result of the string is " CONTACT PERSON (FINANCE ONLY) - MANDATORY " then - word MANDATORY (not the whole string) should be in RED - words (FINANCE ONLY) should be in BLUE - remaining string should be left in BLANK
I belong to a fantasy cycling league and after every race, I copy the race results to award each rider their points for the day. The site I visit most frequently lists the riders results in this format:
1. Alberto Contador (Spa) Team Sax Bank Tinkoff 4:05:00 2. Lance Armstrong (USA) Team Livestrong etc... 4:06:00
I usually copy the results to my spreadsheet then calculate each riders points.
The'results end up looking like this in Excel:
1. Alberto Contador (Spa) Team Sax Bank Tinkoff 4:05:00 2. Lance Armstrong (USA) Team Livestrong 4:06:00
So, the data ends up in 3 cells. The position in one cell, the rider and their nationality and their team in another, and the time of arrival in another cell
Is there a way in Excel where I can get rid of or delete all the data after a rider's name?
I usually end up pasting the rider information to Word, then replacing the (***) with a tab symbol, then pasting back to Excel and get rid of the data that's after the name by deleting the cells to which that data was transferred.
Is there an easier way to do this in Excel, or a macro I can create?...
Is there any way I can Vlookup for just part of a text stiring in a cell. I am trying to vlook if a part number contains the letters “HFR” if it does I want It to refer to the comment I have made in the second column of my vlook table against HFR.
I have a worksheet that I need to filter on 8 columns. I need to do this in the form (Col A = Bob OR SAM) AND (Col B = Apple OR Pear OR Banana) AND... etc for 8 columns.
I started this thread and we reached the conclusion that I needed either a macro to list out all the possible combinations on separate lines, or a complex criteria formula.
I'm trying to put together the complex criteria, but I am further stumped by the fact that some of the columns contain multiple terms with comma delimiters, so I'm trying to match part of a string, rather than a whole string, so the usual = ISNUMBER(MATCH(Sheet1!A2,Sheet2!$A:$A,0)) won't work. I tried using =ISNUMBER(FIND(Sheet2!$A:$A,Sheet1!A2)) instead, but I think this fails because it should be an array formula. I tried normal entering and CSE entering, and neither work, so I think this is a dead end.
I have a Userform (PictureViewer) with a.o. a combobox and a textbox on it. The combobox has a picturename with the full path, i.e. C:My DocumentsJohnMy PicsSummer VacationImg_0001.jpg. The textbox will have the replacement name for that picture entered in it while the picture is visible, i.e. Harry and Antoinette (no extension). Pictures get cycled on this Userform with a forward and backward button. When I click the forward button, the next picture opens up and the name of that picture replaces the previous name in the combobox. What I would like to do is on the click of a commandbutton, copy the string (full path) in the combobox to a column (A), starting at the first cell and in the column beside it (B) end up with the new picture name including the full path. In this case, that would be C:My DocumentsJohnMy PicsSummer VacationHarry and Antoinette.jpg. The next picture name I want to change would be in the cells below this. This could go on for many pictures. I have the macro to change the file names once when I have cycled through everything I want to change. Is it possible to do this in one click or do I have to split the drive name, all folder names and picture name, replace the picture name with the new name manually and concatenate it again? The depth of folders can vary of course. The macro for renaming is as follows
Sub RenameTheFiles() Dim OldName As String Dim NewName As String Dim LastRow As Long Dim I As Long LastRow = Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row For I = 1 To LastRow OldName = Range("A" & I).Value NewName = Range("B" & I).Value Name OldName As NewName Next I End Sub
