Remove "space" & Add 3 Zero's
Replacing a sequence of characters such as NUK 00100 with NUK00100000
Essentially, the code will just need to remove the space & to suffix those 3 zeros onto the end of the sequence.

Remove Front Zeros & Add Space Before Last 2 Characters
I want to remove the front zero(s) from the front and put a space before the last two letters for the following column of data in Excel:
Final result will have this format and the data are right aligned.
The numbers can vary (e.g. 0150MG, 0025MG,etc.) but the arrangement is always the same: four figures for the first 4 characters and two letters for the last two characters.
The format of the cells containing the data is: “General”
My table has 7 columns and these data are in the 5th column in a worksheet called “ProductSummary”. The number of rows for the records can vary from 10 to over a couple of hundred.
How can I use VBA to: 1) automatically select the table range in that worksheet and reformat all the data in the 5th column.

Remove Initial Space From Column Of Entries
After copying certain data into an excel worksheet, all entries in a column begin at 2nd space of each cell which I don't want.
I can manually backspace each entry to the first space of each cell. But I cannot backspace all entries at once even if I try Find then put in a space for find and then in replace leave blank.
Remove Space And Symbols In Front Of Words
I have a spreadsheet that I exported from my accounting software. For some reason there are 4 columns that all begin with an apostrophe and have various lengths of white space before the wording begins.
What kind of formula can I use to get rid of the apostrophe and have the wording be left aligned within the cell with no space before or after it?
The file I am working on is attached. They are columns C, D, E and F.
Remove The Extra White Space Between Each Comma Delimited Digit
This is a delima I cannot figure out. I had to create passwords for a website we are building. I have 3000 employee numbers has to be used. So what i did was took the first initial and middle initial and last initial and first 5 of the ID number. I did a comma delimiter to obtain all of the letters and numbers. example: ABC12345
My problem is none of the passwords work because when I imported the letters and numbers into the sheet it looks just like the above. However on review I cut and pasted back to notepad and the data looks like this:
"A B C 12345"
So its adding a tab in the password thats thats a problem, How do I remove this extra white space between each comma delimited digit? without having to manually delete it ?
Blank Space Using 'IF'
At the top of my spreadsheet I've got the date displayed using TODAY(). In 'G5' theres a proposed collection date.
In 'F5' I entered, =IF(G5>$D$1+1,"PENDING","NOT COLLECTED"). Which is fine except, if 'G5' is blank I want 'F5' to be blank also. And if a date is removed from 'G5' I want 'F5' to be blank. I've tried various things with "" but I cant get it to do what I need. I'm sure this is very easily cured, but not by me clearly..!

This new Quality menu then has further drop lists which i can add as suited.
Two days ago i started getting the following RunTime Error everytime i open Excel and i can not longer get the new menu "Quality" to show on my Excel menu bar.

Add Space Before Capitals

Add A Space Before Every Cell Value
I'm trying to automate the importing and processing of a fairly large formatted text file (~15000 lines) containing many tables of data. I've been refining this process for several months and recently was alerted to a problem. A few of my tables have widths greater than 255 characters (309 to be exact).
My process involves opening the text file in Excel then performing a .Copy on the Worksheet into ThisWorkbook, naming the sheet "Source". I then perform up to 66 separate parse operations on the various tables depending on which options a user selected from a form.
The problem is that I assumed that the Copy Method would simply make a duplicate of that sheet in ThisWorkbook. Instead, it seems to have truncated any columns that are longer than 255 characters, leaving me with partial data in a few tables.
My workaround was to perform a TextToColumns on the text file prior to the import such that it would simply split the data into columns that could be reassembled on the other side. In doing so, I seemed to have stripped a leading <space> from each cell which was apparently put there previously. This is causing a lot of problems for my formatting code which also uses TextToColumns to separate the tables into columns. The simplest solution seems to be trying to add the spaces back in, assuming there isn't a better way to import this data in the first place.
Just prior to copying the sheet into ThisWorkbook, I'm using the following code after the TextToColumns to add the space back in, but it's taking an awfully long time and causing a noticable time delay in processing my code and adding considerable size to the finished workbook it creates. If someone could recommend a better solution, either to the import process or to replace this God-awful loop, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Add Space If Number Is X Digits
In my worksheet there is a column with values of either 3 or 4 numbers. If the value only has 3 numbers I would like to add a space before the first number, to ensure the proper line-up when saving the sheet as a text file. How can I do this (conditional formatting or macro??)
Out Of Stack Space/can't Stop Loop
I've got this code to display a certain cell from multiple files, and functionally it works, but I get a out of stack space error after it runs for a while. I'm sure this is because the loop doesn't know when to stop, which I thought would be solved by having " Do Until sBook = "" " instead of Do; however, then the code will not run at all.

Add Space To Each Uppercase Letter In Text
I import a CSV file into Excel where the column title row has column titles that are just one long text string, without any spacing between the words. For example:
I would like a method (formula or macro) that would add a space-character before each uppercase letter (that's not the first letter in the string or an uppercase letter that directly follows another upper case letter). Thus:
CompanySiteDescription becomes Company Site Description
CompanySiteExternalSystemID becomes Company Site External System ID
IssueNumber becomes Issue Number

Using A Loop To Add '0's In Between Two Other Numbers To Reach 12 Digits Total
I have a UPC list. Some are more than 12 digits, and some with less than 12 digits. I need to make sure there are 12 digits in each UPC. I know how to count using LEN, strip leading zeros of those UPCs that are >12 digits using RIGHT.
What I need now is any number with less than 12 digits, such as 000123, add a 4 to the beginning (4000123) and fill in '0's in between the 4 and the short UPC number to make 12 digits, 400000000123. They vary from 1 to 13 digits.

Code In 'ThisWorkbook' Module In Add-in?
I have made a macro that displays a textbox containing the contents of a cell once the cell is clicked. The macro is written in the 'ThisWorkbook' module in the Sub 'Worksheet_SelectionChange'.
Now I want to convert this macro into an add-in so that it works on all the Excel workbooks I open. Is it possible to do this? Or is there a way in which we can automatically put the code in the 'ThisWorkbook' module of any open worksheet (doesn't seem feasible).
If you have any ideas, please let me know?

Using ' In Cells: Add A ' To The Start
I currently have a number of spreadsheets with number data in it. I need to import it into a third party program. Unfortunately when this program imports it it counts numbers such as 1 as 1.0. This third party program says the only way around this is to put a ' before the numbers and this seems to fix the problem. My problem is that I have so much data I cannot go through ever cell and add a ' to the start. IS there a quick way to add ' to the start of certain cells?
I am trying to find the solution for the problem I faced after downloading the "Color Filter" utility from this forum (Handle Duplicates & Color Filter)
I really do not understand why I was banned. I've downloaded utility from THIS forum and have kindly asked help on how to remove it because it does not meet my needs. I am not an expert in VBA and expected that somebody could help me. (It looks like the person providing the utility in the above indicated post shared the password as everybody is thanking him but I don't see where it is!)
I just want to remove the utility from my PC!!! And, if I can do this without bloody password than I do not want it! But, can somebody just explain me if there is another way to remove this from my PC or I have to reinstall EXCEL ?
I must say that I find it really increadible for beeing banned twice for no reason. Isn't it worse to place the password protected utility so that the one dowloading it cannot remove it anymore?
Run-time Error '1004' :: Method 'Range' Of Object'_Global' Failed
I am trying to create a macro in my personal macro book such that whenever any workbook is opened the calculation settings (tools, options, calculation tab) are set to semiautomatic and do not calculate before save. The macro works when I am opening Excel itself (Book1) but when I open an already saved file it gives me

Run-time Error '1004' Method 'Range' Of Object '_Worksheet' Failed
I have an interesting error that only happens when there is one row of data in the worksheet (sheet2 or "Half Payout"). Rows 1 & 2 are headers, row 3 is when the data starts - if any. With either no rows of data or more than one the coding works just fine. Here is the exact error message I'm getting: Run-time error '1004': Method 'Range' of object '_Worksheet' failed.
The following code is supposed to sort the rows of data when opened and then activate the first open cell below B2.
Run-time Error '1004': Methd 'Range' Of Object '_Global' Failed
I have constructed the following code to set the print area of worksheets that have been selected to print to the range referenced in a worksheet level named range "xPrintArea". This named range is set using the OFFSET function. The procedure also sets the left footer to be a copyright notice that is also contained in a cell referenced by a named range.
Set oPrintArea = Range(sPrintAreaName)
is generating the error "Methd 'Range' of object '_Global' failed".
Note that the line
Set oCopyrightNotice = Range("CopyrightNotice")
does not generate this error. From what I've been able to determine from other research on this forum and others, I believe the problem is that I need to more fully qualify the object which Range(sPrintAreaName) is referencing. I've already tried to use
Set oPrintArea = wkSht.Range(sPrintAreaName).................
Add, But Not Remove Or Edit
Is there a way to setup a spreadsheet so data that has been entered cannot ne deleted or edited, and only the last field in the column can be accessible? So if I have info entered in a1, a2, a3, b1, b2, b3, no one can edit or delete them, and can only add to a4 and b4? Will I need to write a macro for this or is it something I can do with certain settings?
Remove Add-In In 2007
I've been sent a document by a client which has come with an add-in which has automatically installed itself into the Ribbon. It's on the Add-In tab (obviously!) and the Command Group is named 'Custom Toolbars'. What's annoying is once I close the document, the Add-In stays there and I have a redundant tab with an irrelevant Command Group .
Now, I've done a bit of searching and how found a number of websites that give instructions on add-ins. However, the add-in that has come with the client's document isn't on the list and hence I can't remove it. I need to do to get rid of this? I've contacted the client, but they're suspiciously quiet about the whole thing.

Can't Remove Public ADO Connection
I have a VBA application that uses data from a sheet in the excel workbook. It accesses this data with an ADO connection. On workbook open I open this connection--I declare it as public variable so I can continue to use it throughout the session. My problem is that the connection really doesn't ever dissappear. I have the problem that once I close the workbook, the project still exists in the VB Editor. How do I get rid of the connection? I am stuck because I declared it as public? I want to keep it open, rather than opening every time I want to use it, because it is faster to keep the connection open.
My code is below.
Option Explicit 'requires variable declaration
'declare global connection
Public cn As ADODB.Connection
'open db connection
'this happens on workbook open
If cn Is Nothing Then
Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
.Provider = "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0"
.ConnectionString = "Data Source=" & WCHSBook.FullName & ";" & _
"Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes;"""
Add Lookup Via VBA & Remove #N/A
I have two workbooks. One is a database (funding.xls) with many columns - the unique identifier in column C (deal number). The other is a workbook (operational report.xls) for which a worksheet ("Not Yet Finalised Deals") is emailed to me daily and lists the unique identifier (deal number) in column C and a code assigned to that deal number in column G. Sometimes there may be only one or two deals on this spreadsheet, other times up to twenty. What I want is a macro which can be run off the funding.xls database (preferably - although the code below runs off operational report.xls) which inputs the Code from Column G of operational report.xls into column AL of the funding.xls database if the deal number is the same. I have written the following, but it kills Excel. I presume this is because it loops for so long, but doubtless you will find many errors/overkill of references in it

Using 'IF' With Conditional Format (change Cell Color Based On The 'P' Or 'F')
My cell has a 'P' or an 'F' plus some additional text. I'm trying to change cell color based on the 'P' or 'F' but I can't get it to recognize the letters.
Samples of what I've tried:

How To Restrict The Cell Data To Letters 'a' Through 'e' AND 'A' Through 'E'
I am trying to come up with an excel shee which can track the progress of a student on practice exams. This exam only has multiple choice questions, with answer choices A,B,C,D or E.
What I am looking for
1) I want to restrict the cell data to A,B,C,D or E (both cases). Note that I am not looking for a drop down/combo box. It would take the user to use one or two mouse clicks to drop down the list, and I am not in favor of that.
2) I would like this validation/formula to be applied to all the cells in a particular column.
If the user enters a lower case letter, then I would like to convert to upper case.
