Relating List Of Random Numbers To A List Of Names To Create Rota
Nov 21, 2013
I'm trying to create a staff rota which will populate a rota randomly when prompted - I have been trying to find some way of connecting the random lists and the staff names, though this has proved difficult (to say the least!). How best to proceed? I'm also fully aware of the possibility that my present design will also double book people (place then on reception and telephone duty simultaneously).
I have a database output file where one of the columns contains managers names, often more than once. I want to apply an autofilter on manager name and then copy the result to another sheet or sheets. My criteria for the autofilter is a variable pointing to a list of names that at present I maintain by hand; a for-each-next loop then cycles through the names.
What I would like to do, before running the autofilter code, is to create the list of names via code. This would then automatically pickup names that are missing.
The code I have so far is below:
Public Sub find_managers() Dim managers1 As Range Dim names1 As Range Dim n1 As Variant Dim n2 As Variant
In my mind it should check the names in the unique list against the imported list and add any missing names.
I want to create a simple worksheet that takes a list of names (All of the members of my family) and Randomly selects another name from that same list and matches them to it ( I don't want to say "paired" because I want each person to have a one way relationship to the other, in other words just because personA is matched to personB, i don't want personB to automatically be paired to personA) I hope that makes sense. Once every name on the list is matched with a person I would like to move that name to a database that I can track each year. The practical application of it is this: Each year our family randomly draws names and we are tasked to buy a new x-mas ornimate for that person, ideally you would not get the same person 2 years in a row, and the person that you have does not have you in return simply to add more variety and the database would track who had who each year.
Code: Sub test() Dim a, i As Long, temp, n As Long a = Range("b2", Range("b" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)) Randomize With CreateObject("System.Collections.SortedList") For i = 1 To UBound(a, 1)
I need to set up a formula to choose 2 job titles from a single column. There can be 2 to n job titles (non-repeating) and I want to find the title at random. I have no problem finding the first job title using index and randbetween, but I want the second title to meet the same criteria, just not equal to the first job title.
I have a long customer listing, names 5 to 36 characters and several with their location in the name as well as a few common duplicate names. I am trying to produce sheet where the customers name once selected opens in the customers spreadsheet and data can be added/amended for sales etc.The lists are not in alphabetical order as when created a customer number is automatically allocated. My aim is just to type in the first letter of the name and the dropdown appears the customer is selected and their card appears. I have tried data validation, lookup, vlookup, Dropdown and Match/find. they only return the first record found and no sign of any others. Find returned all instances of the letter appearing in every name.
I have a frequency list (frequency per year) resulted from previous calculation. What I want is to generate random number as many as the frequency in the specified year, so that every year I will get the same amount of random numbers as the frequency. It is kind of the opposite of FREQUENCY function (but with random numbers involved). I need to use the result for further calculation.
how to display the result i made in macro to active worksheet so that i can keep a record of the result made in my random generator,
Sub timer() TextBox1 = "" TextBox2 = "" TextBox3 = "" TextBox4 = "" Dim x As String, i As Byte Randomize x = Format$(Int(Rnd * 1899) + 1, "0000") For i = 1 To Len(x) Me.Controls("TextBox" & i).Value = Mid$(x, i, 1) Application.Wait Now + TimeValue("00:00:03") Next
Have a list of aprox 50,000 names. in that list names may repeat themselves multiple times. Is there a way in excel to extrapolate from that list of 50k to display only a single instance of each name in a separate Colum?
I have a worksheet where a number of the cells have been assigned names. I want to copy these cell names & create a list on another part of the worksheet. Does anyone have some code I could use to achieve this?
I'm trying to achieve is to write a macro that can search a column of dates then open new worksheets according to the months that are present in the column of dates. So, for example, if the column has dates ranging from January to June, I need the macro to open 6 new worksheets and label them January, February, March, April, May and June.
I am a small business owner with little experience in Excel and I have been trying to set up a worksheet that will organize my products and finances. I organize sets of various products and sell them in bulk to customers. I was trying to recreate this in Excel so I can figure out the total price for each of these sets and easily edit them.
What I've been trying to do is to take a list of the items and assign a price to each of them. This is on a sheet titled "Prices." Here's an example:
On a separate sheet titled "Sets," I created lists of items included in each particular set. To easily add or change the products I used drop down menus.
I would like for the sum of the price of all the items listed under each set to add up automatically in the "Total" row. For example, in cell B7 it should display the number 10. Here is a list of the following formulas I've tried:
I need to separate out the name of the brand and the number (or if the item says "variable", use a 1 for the number) into two columns, so that the results would be:
1800Brandacom 1800Brandacom brandb BrandC brandd
25.00 25.00 1.00 100.00 1.00
For the numbers, I have used this array formula to search for the first letter in the string, and then search for the first number following the first letter, and then return all numbers up to "." Unfortunately this does not work consistently when there is a number in the middle of the brand name or the item has no number.
For the names I have used this formula, which fails when the name has a "-" in it.
Any way to extract the names and numbers which would work consistently across all the items!
I'm using Excel 2010. I have a workbook that has six or seven worksheets in it. Each worksheet has a header row, and then lists of clients at the clinic where I work. The columns are last name, first name, medicaid #, social security #, DOB. We use these lists every month to verify that each client has Medicaid for the month. Therefore, there are also columns with names like April, May, June where we mark yes or no for each client. Some of the worksheets also have information about the clients' guardian, phone number, etc., but not every worksheet has those. (I can't show you the worksheets b/c of federal privacy laws, of course.)
I really, really want a worksheet that's a master list of the data from each of the existing worksheets, and I'd like to keep it synced to the source worksheets. I'd love it if I could also add a column telling me which of the source worksheets the data originally came from.
I've tried a few things to make it happen, but nothing has worked.
I've tried using the Consolidate function built into Excel as well, but that only works with numbers, not text, and it wants to manipulate the numbers instead of just copying them over.
I've found several macros online that should have worked (including one from this site) but that I wasn't able to install to my worksheet. I followed all the steps for installation, and throught it worked, but when I went back to the Excel file to run the macro, the list of available macros remained emptpy.
Is it possible that corporate IT has disabled the ability to install macros? Is there somewhere in Options were I need to go to turn Macros on?
I need to compare two lists of client names. One list has 59k names to be compared to second list of 1000 names. The list of 59k are listed in column D and the other list is in Column E. I tried conditional formatting but unfortunately some of the names are slightly different I.e. fair point communications vs fair point communications inc. I was trying to put in v lookup with a trim function but it didn't seem to be working.
I've read a lot of tutorials on how to use pivot tables, but found them either too basic, or too advanced, and never finding any example of what I am looking to do.
I have a database, column A holds names, and column B their phone numbers. I'd like to generate a list of unique names and their associated telephone numbers. I figure I can use a pivot table to do this.
But I do not quite understand how to format the pivot table to put the name in one column and the phone number in the next. I will use this pivot table as a vlookup range. I assume I can do this.
What i would like to do is, create a random weekly work rota, so I just have to go in every week and let excel randomly but fairly creat a rota the employees so that they don't argue about whose doing what and just get on with the work. : D
I need to create a macro that can produce a new workbook with the list of the most recent users of my company, so that we can print their membership cards.
From my company's admin I can export the complete list of users with their name, serial number and address. Every time we export this list, the file is saved as "userdata-dd-mm-yyyy.xls", and "dd-mm-yyyy" as today
However, I would like to create a macro that would 1) open the most recent "userdata-dd-mm-yyyy.xls" workbook in the folder, 2) compare the user numbers in this file with the most recent "card_order-dd-mm-yyyy.xls" and 3) produce a new "card_order-dd-mm-yyyy.xls" workbook with the list of all new users since the last "card_order-dd-mm-yyyy.xls" ("dd-mm-yyyy" as today), based on the highest number for user number (this is a continuous list)
Note, the "userdata-dd-mm-yyyy.xls" workbook has name, serial number, address, expiration date and user number as columns.... but the extracted info to "card_order-dd-mm-yyyy.xls" is just of the name, serial number and expiration date.
What is the easiest way of doing so and what code should I use for the macro?
I do not have any code for this as I am unsure if it is possible. I have a list of range names in a column (A) that refer to different sheets and in an adjacent column (B) I have a list of data. Is it possible to write VBA code that will allow me to copy each value in column B to the corresponding cell in the workbook that relates to the range name in column A.
I have an excel sheet with 30 names in column A and I'm asked to do the following: Write a procedure – a sub – that uses an input box to ask for a name. The procedure should then scan through the names in the list to search for the name and make a message box to state “X is not in the group” or “X is in the group”, where X is the name from the input box. HINT: You can make a variable “found” that starts with the value 0 and gets the value 1 if the name is found in the list.
