Removing Gaps From Data Extraction

Nov 13, 2009

I'm doing some simple data extraction, e.g.
A B
1 bob 3
2 mandy 4
3 charlie 6
4 dave 1
5 steve 5

So I had in c1 to c5 = =if(b1 > 3, a1,"") autofilled, which works fine, but I end up with,

gap
mandy
charlie
gap
steve

how would I get,

mandy
charlie
steve

also is it possible to have an if statement in 1 cell change the value of another cell?

e.g.
in a1
if(b1>5, c1="yes",c1="no"), can't seem to get it to work

Handling Gaps In Time Series Data

Dec 21, 2006

I have been browsing here off and on, and have found many excellent answers. I use Excel to process data on time series, as an adjunct to consultancy work on statistical analysis of industrial data . Usually the data has irregular gaps, e.g., daily data might have 2-10 day gaps. If I want to take, say, 7-day averages, SKIPPING OVER gaps longer than 2 days(say), is there an easy way to do this (I don't really know VBA,and it is not worth my time to try and write long code for this, which will eventually be done by some professional programmers)!

Data Extraction

Mar 11, 2008

I have an excel file with a large list of data in the following format, all the data is in the A column –

Mar 11: category one – process number one (1)
Mar 11: category two – process number two (2)
Mar 11: category three – process number three (3)
Mar 11: category four – process number four (4)
Mar 11: category five – process number five (5)

I would like to extract from the list, ONLY the data highlighted in red i.e. the process number data –

Mar 11: category one – process number one (1)
Mar 11: category two – process number two (2)
Mar 11: category three – process number three (3)
Mar 11: category four – process number four (4)
Mar 11: category five – process number five (5)

Workbook Data Extraction

Oct 23, 2008

I have a folder on my drive that holds excel files, some of which I would like to extract data from, using an excel workbook outside the folder.

Can you assist me in achieiving this action? Or, direct me to literature that will have the answer?

Auto Extraction Of Data

Feb 4, 2010

I just wanted to ask whether the same code will work for many more sheets or will modification be needed? I have a very basic understanding of vba loops, so plz tell me did you check the entire row for being blank or specific cells? Im attaching a file which more closely resembles the data i work with, just tell me whether the previous macro called "ravi" will work fine or will it require modification.

Data Mining / Extraction From Web

Nov 15, 2011

There are websites available for data, but what is viable and crucial to me is finding a way to

1) Run a repeated process via a macro / vba script to allow for data input into the site
2) Once input into site, data is to be brought back into excel so that I can benchmark my product pricing vs my competition

There are 2 sites I am most interested in getting this information from specifically and although they do the same thing they have a couple of unique pros to them. they are the following

1) Findchips.com
2) eciaauthorized.com

The biggest pro to findchips.com is that they have a beta tool on their site that allows for "mass searches" to be performed as opposed to 1 part number at a time. Up to 100 results can be returned at a time, so although there would be multiple iterations doing it this way would save processing power as each step is not done line by line (p/n by p/n) as i could group them and send them and perform the operations that way.

Data Extraction - One Criteria

May 19, 2014

This table has one column with people's names, other columns with different things, and one with hours.

The figures will change every month, and my dad doesn't know crap about excel, so anything that he has to go put in equations or sort again every month or whatever, is not going to work. it needs to be so that all he has to do is plug in numbers.

It can be either one or two ways: either I need to pull out all the rows that have hours above a certain amount, and have them sitting to the side/under/above the main table in the same worksheet.

I realize that that may involve a long complicated formula, however.

Alternatively, we can have it so that all the rows with hours above a certain number are color coded at located at the top of the main table. I figured that one out with ease, HOWEVER I don't how to make that automatic, so that it does it by itself when the numbers are plugged in each month. My dad would not be able to handle sorting.

I need the hours that =0 color coded and put at the bottom if possible, it's not absolutely necessary, however. I could not figure out how to put the highest hours on top and the hours equaling 0 at the bottom, considering that all rowsthat fall in between need to be kept in alphabetical order.

Data Extraction (pull The Data To Another Sheet For Each Line)

Feb 23, 2010

I want to pull data from another sheet, however there are multiple listings of each and I want to pull the data to another sheet for each line. I maybe easier if I try and show below:

Col. ACol. BCol. C
Smith101
Jones512
Green65
Black1214
Smith 3612
Jones1512
Dual25
Green1225

I want to pull this data for each name in Col. A in to another sheet. I've tried "IF", "Vlookup" and a couple of others, it just seems to be hitting the first option and pulling the data but not the ones below.

So if I selected Green on the second tab it brings through the "6" and "5", but not informtion from the listing from Green below. So I wiould like to list all the Green's, and the applicable data.

Dropdown List (extraction Of Data)

Jul 3, 2013

how can i do this ?

Data Extraction And Formatting Using Macro?

Jan 22, 2014

To start off macro should pick selected columns such as owners and their projects, start date, price Final price, priority and status columns and paste into new sheet

At the same time only pick selected owners(Dave, Brian, Ken, Russell, Ben)data along with their high low, and medium projects then format the price and the final price column (that is to first convert them to numbers, then change it to the currency format and set the decimal place to 0) and then sort owners (AtoZ) along with Price and final price columns (largest to smallest) into a new workbook and to a new sheet in the same workbook with a name to the sheet called Extracted data

note owners may change and new members might get included in the list ( I am not sure if something dynamically can be done about this in the macro)

I have included sample data and how the output should look like.

Linefeed-delimited Data Extraction

Jul 14, 2008

I'm trying to determine a way to populate a listbox with the contents of a few cells full of vblf-delimited information.

It's almost working properly, but placing the first entry in the target cells last in the listbox and have no idea why it's behaving this way.

Data Extraction: Convert The Date Format

Mar 4, 2009

I have several large excel spreadsheets with thousands of entries (autocad drawing numbers). In one column it lists the date the drawing was created. Unfortunatley most of the entries were input as text. Even though I have formated the column to a date format (01/01/2009) most entries are not converting. Below is an example of some of the cells:

Jan. 12/02
JAN12/02

How can I correct his?

Creating Dropdown Menu For Data Extraction

Nov 30, 2012

Creating a drop down menu that allows me to pull data from sheet2.

I have all of my data on sheet2 and my objective is to have a small portion of the data displayed on sheet1 once the user selects the specific "study" from a drop down menu.

how to create a drop down menu that will have a list of all the different studies, and then once the specific study is selected, how do I make it display the pertaining information in the master sheet.

The data Iâ€™m working with is a master list of different drug studies. All of the data is broken down by the specific study itself, so all I need to do is figure out a way to let the user access the data in a quick and easy way. I figured this could be down with a drop down menu that has a list of each study, and the user could select the study they want to review. Once selected, the data pertaining to the study would then populate the fields on the master silde(sheet1).

Data Extraction From Daily Production Sheets

Apr 24, 2013

I have daily production sheets (Excel sheets) that I fill out every day indicating the day's production totals. The files are named by the day's date. For example today's sheet (4/24/13) would be 042413.xls. However, I would like to be able to pull certain pieces of information into another separate spreadsheet. For example, my boss asked me how many of a certain product we made over the last month. So, I'd like to pull the product info, the date made, and quantity made into another sheet. And I'd like to be able to do this automatically for a date range that I specify.

Macro And Worksheet Name - Data Segregation And Extraction

Feb 5, 2014

I created a macro for data segregation and extraction.

My currently flow is:create new worksheets rename the worksheets to e.g., sheet1 to product1, sheet2 to product2, etc manually filter the main data sheet, copy and paste the data into the respective sheets.

How to i edit the codes to allow the renaming of the worksheets to be non-static?

Meaning it doesn't have to be sheet1 to product1, sheet2 to product2

I can have sheet3 to product1, sheet4 to product2 or sheet7 to product1, sheet8 to product2

I feel that my method of data segregation and extraction is kind of rigid. is there any methods i can make it to be more fluid/dynamic?

Data Extraction Predicated On Date Ranges

Sep 8, 2009

I've attached a spreadsheet that I'm working on. I want to be able to extract data from a master sheet and copy data to another sheet if the date is within a defined date-range. I've prototyped the problem within the attachment.

Given the code in macro2, none of the records are selected (the "yep"). What am I doing wrong?

Extraction Of Data From Sheets Based Upon Input Value

Jan 20, 2010

Example attachment is included. The goal of this is to extract data off of another sheet based upon an input value. It's easy enough to where the input value will be equivalent to the sheet name I want to reference. The example I provide incorporates code that works successfully. The only problems I have are:

1. The select method only works on the active sheet. I want to be able to call this while another sheet is active.

2. My code is very inefficient and takes a while to execute. I'd like to cut down on the execution time.

Data Extraction Multiple Workbooks And Sheets To Master Spreadsheet

Mar 20, 2009

I have directory with multiple workbooks. Each workbook contains multiple sheets (sheet 1, sheet 2, etc). On each sheet of the workbook, there are various data. The data I am looking to extract from these sheets are in the same cell of each sheet. (See data sheet –datasheet.xls). If I can extract these data without opening the file, it would be preferred. Otherwise, opening the workbook, extract the data, and then close the workbook is acceptable.

Desired Solution:

I would like the assistance to create a macro that will extract data from each sheet of the workbook in the directory at a time until all the workbooks and sheets within the directory are read. The macro shall extract data from cell B5, B6, B10:B20, and sheet name from each sheet of the workbook and copy these data to an active sheet called “US” on workbook, DesireResult.xls. The DesireResult.xls shows how the data should be copied over. Before copying the data to the DesireResult.xls workbook, the macro will prompt the user to enter a cell on the “US” sheet as the starting point to paste the information to. Prompting the user to enter the beginning cell shall happen only once and not for each workbook or sheet being read. The reason for this is because the “US” sheet will already have other data in it. After reading each sheet, the macro shall leave a blank row at the end. The data from the next sheet shall be pasted below the blank row. Note: all the workbooks contain macro and link to other file. When opening each workbook, the macro should automatically choose not to update the links.

Gaps In A List

May 13, 2006

I'm having a problem with a list that I've created. The list is in cell A1, the base data for the list is in the range B1:B50. The problem is that data in this range is dynamic, i.e. it has formulas and depending on the result of these formulae the cells in the range either have a value or the cell is left blank. The problem this causes is that the list ends up having gaps in it because it uses blank cells as well. And this is despite me specifcally ticking " Ignore Blank " in the Data Validation menu where I'm creating the list.

Delete GAPS In Columns In One Go

Feb 29, 2012

I have around 2368 rows for in each column and I have around 8 columns and what I need to do is to remove any gaps. I do not know how to attach picture here, but I can explaining it in words.

A1: 0.9
A2:
A3:
A4:
A5: -0.09
A6:
A7: 0.4

Is there a way to eliminate those gaps (A2, A3, A4, A6...) in one go?

Ranking With VBA - No Gaps Between Ranks

Feb 7, 2014

I have a problem ranking a large dataset(more than 30000 rows, 16 different columns need to be ranked). My problem is that I dont want the ranks to have gaps when there are ties.

See how it should be in table below.

Ext P\$
Rank
Should be
2,128.34
1
1

[Code]...

I do have a working solution with an array formula similar to this, but it slows down my macro (30 minutes instead of 10 seconds) as I need it to calculate 16 times

Code:

=SUM(1/COUNTIF(A\$2:A\$35000;A\$2:A\$35000)*(A\$2:A\$35000>A2))+1

I was thinking of using a for next loop to rank sorted columns but I dont know how to set it up properly.

Drag Formulas With Gaps?

Mar 13, 2014

I'm wanting to do is drag a formula down and it drop to the next cell rather than the same row number I'm on. For example I'm trying to concatenate a list of phrases whilst changing the main word. Here's an example of the excel sheet

Base Terms
Phrase
Result
car
red
van
blue
bus
red
blue

There is meant to be a space after the second red and blue enabling me to make (in order), red car, blue car, car red, car blue

How can I make it so I've done the relevant concatenate formulas for A2 with the B column and simply drag it down and Excel will switch from A2 to A3 and so on when I've dragged out the 4 formulas?

Find Gaps In Sequence

Dec 31, 2008

I have a file that contains addresses in column C. I need to find any gaps in addresses.

Ex:
211 Corbin Dr
213 Corbin Drive
214 Corbin Drive
123 Apple Drive
124 Apple Dr
124 Apple Dr
127 Apple Drive

I want to identify that there is a gap between 211 Corbin and 213 Corbin and 124 and 127 Apple Drive.

Currently the address including house number are in column c. However, I split the house number into a separate column and the street address in yet another column. There are also duplicates which I have identified by using conditional formatting to highlight the duplicates.

Fill In Of Text Gaps

Mar 21, 2007

I have a sheet of over 40000 rows, I attach a sample. Column a is called dam and column b is called damsire. Each dam has only one 1 damsire. Both column a and column b are sorted ascending. Unfortunately there are big gaps in column b. some of these can be filled in as we have the information e.g. b38 and b39 should be Manila..as the row 37 tells you the correct damsire. Similiarly b49 could be filled in as shernazar. I want to create a new column which contains a formula to fill in these blanks. of course some of the blanks cant be filled in as the information is not there e.g. b23 to b28.

Stop Gaps In Timeline

Jul 17, 2007

how I can format this timeline better (it was a to,e;ome template created by someone smart on this forum) - so that there isn't a huge gap between 1892 and then 1977... and then so the rest of the data isn't scrunched together.
