# Repeating Pattern In Excel?

Jul 15, 2014I'm trying to repeat a pattern which outputs 4 equal numbers and then increments that number by 1 for another four row as follows

1

I made a code that automatically checks the date and then compares it to the date of the last save. If it is a new date then the colors of the tabs will randomize. It can also be done manually via a button. The problem is that I have now realized that the colors are always have the same pattern. Every day the first color is an orange color, no matter how many times I randomized yesterday...and so on. Is there a way to make the randomness not have a repeating pattern?

Sub MMVII_4_9_b()

Dim NewDate

If Sheets("Scrappaper"). Range("F2") = Date Then

NewDate = 0

Else

NewDate = 1

End If

'Determines whether it is a new day or not

Sheets("Scrappaper").Range("F2") = Date

'Updates the date

If NewDate = 0 Then

'Does nothing if the date is the same

Else

I have a weather graph I am putting together for fun and cannot figure out a way to bring data in for a table based on a consistent data pattern. My high temp averages are in column C along with other annual averages (High (Cell C7), annual avg. (Cell C9), low (Cell C8), precip (Cell C10) etc.) for that year, my data will go back 50 years. I am trying to find a formula that will bring the temp data into another column so I can create a graph of just the high temps or precipitation or any other measure. I have color coded the cells I am looking for.

Essentially, I am hoping that in column H, I will have a year (2014 for example) and column I will search for a match between column A and H (year), if a match is found, it will bring in data from that year for a specific category (Temp for example). OR, another option would be to to skip the cells and just pull in data from the cell (High temps would be in cell C7, C18, C29, C40 etc.) through a =C7+11 (cell count, not adding to number result) type of formula.

In the above (repeating for say, 50 or more cartons), is there a way with a macro(I know nothing about) or pivot table(see macro) to get the following format/result?

I need a function or VB code to parse through a column of numbers and find a repeating pattern. The column has some initial numbers that do not fit the pattern and I need those returned along with the repeating pattern.

Pre-requisite: I would consider myself to be very poor with excel, based on what I've read on this forum and found on my web-searches. I have a worksheet that has a list of data on the left going vertically, then a summary of this data going horizontally across the top. It is not arranged in such a way that transposing the data will do what I want. I am pulling the 5th word out of the title of each block of the vertical data and need to show this word on the horizontal section.

When I use this formula to pull the 5th word: =MID(MID(MID(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4),1,256), FIND("^",SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4)),256),2,FIND(" ",MID(MID(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4),1,256),FIND("^",SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4)),256))-2)

I need to increase A2 to A30, then A58 (up by 28 every time) in every instance in that formula. The fill handle increases the values by 1, instead of 28 (even if I do 3 or 4 instances manually) How do I do this? I've run into this problem in other scenarios, and there HAS to be a way to get around it.

We have a huge excel-sheet, containing disputes with customers. Everytime there is a dispute, the customers data will be transferred into the sheet. The sheet is organized like this:

DATE / NAME / ID / COMMENT / FREQUENCY (how often one customer appears in the list) /ID2 (ID combination of the date + ID) /Weekday

And here comes the task:

Find all customers who appear 10 work-days(Mo-Fr) in a row. So if a customer appears Mo-Fr and keeps on being in the list the next Monday etc. it still counts as "in a row". Same with official holidays. If a customer appears at a certain date he is "booked" and it doesnt matter if a appears a second time on that specific date.

Attached to this post you find an example in which you can see the structure of my excel sheet!

Note: I had to use a german version of excel when I made this little example - thats why the formula in the collum "Frequency" says "Zahlenwenn" its the german version of COUNTIF

sorting data I use in a workbook for athletics. I've really chopped down my workbook for upload, In the worksheet "Leaderboard" I can call up stats for different lifts, and it finds (in this case) the top 5 lifts and the names for the kids that have those corresponding lifts.

My problem is that when two or more kids have the same lift, it will only call up the name of the first instance of that lift. You can see this in the "Leaderboard" worksheet, and the name "Adams, Andrew" appears for both lifts of 75. I would appreciate any help on how to correct this, as I've searched the Internet for weeks now looking for a solution. I've tried experimenting with different things as well, all to no avail.

I have a macro that does exactly what I need it to do, but it takes a long time.

There are 4 horizontal sections. The top section (code not included) is the total of 3 sections which are segregated by location.

For the 3 sections:

rows 101 to 172 (section 1), 198 to 269 (section 2), & 295 to 366 (section 3) have the same formula for every other column starting with column F ending with column AT (sums hrs)

rows 173 to 194 (section 1), 270 to 269 (section 2), 367 to 388 (section 3) have the same formula for every other column starting with column G ending with column AU (sums dollar amount)

the columns are corresponding dates

Below is the code snippet that produces the results for section 1. I repeat the same code pattern for each section.

Dim r As Long

For r = 101 To 172

With LaborDetail.Cells(r, "F")

.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUMIFS('Data '!C17,'Data '!C38,RC1,'Data '!C37,R1C)"

.Value = .Value

I have a string and a pattern. If a substring of the string is found in the pattern, the string is no longer valid. I would like to return a message stating which substring was found in the pattern.

String: K22+L09+P88+Q12+J56

Pattern: (N75|X02|A21|U67|L09|...)

Output Should Be: "J56 is an invalid code. Blah-Blah"

Code to test string against pattern:

Code:

Function Test_OPC(sCode, sPattern) As Boolean

Dim RegX As Object

Dim RegMC

In my worksheet, I know the last line of my report AND I know how many "reporting segments" (all equidistant and identical) there are in the report based on the last row using the below (which I tested in several reports in messages):

VB:

Dim vListEnd As Variant

Dim vTaskCount As Double

vListEnd = ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Offset(Sheet1.Rows.Count - 1, 0).End(xlUp).Row

vTaskCount = ((vListEnd - 5) / 22)

My "reporting segments" are ALWAYS 22 rows each and the first one always starts in row 5. Example: A document where the last row (containing an End of Report special character) is 247 would have 11 reporting segments.

Within each reporting segment, there are two different formulas needed.

For the first reporting segment located in rows A5 thru J27:

I need FORMULA1 in all cells of the range (D5:D15 dragged out to H5:H10(not 15) and D18) and FORMULA2 in cells (F20:F22,J20:J22).

Then I need to repeat that vTaskCount number of times (number of segments) and at intervals of 22 (segment repeater offset). Some reports may have 2 segments, some might have 50, but the structure is always identical.

My formulas are all pretty simple if it makes a difference (originally using FormulaR1C1 = "=RC[-1]+RC[-3]" --- but because I now know solid cell locations I suppose I don't need to make them relative, too.)

I am using Excel 2011 on a mac. I have a selection of data that lists a repeating code (say group 1, group 2, group 3 etc)and a value (-1,-2.3,3,6 etc) and need to find a quick way group together all the codes and next to that a value that counts how many values who share the same code hold a value greater than -1? I can do this myself in a pivot chat with count totals but my issue is how I can show the number of codes greater than -1.

Attached is an example of the data I want to sort.

I have a list that I need to move to another column without spaces. I have it moving without spaces but it is only one item over and over again. I am using Excel 2010 and that may be my issue. I have attached the exact worksheet and formula.

I am trying to enter this formula in cell B2 and i just wanted to know if there was a better and quicker way to do this. I need to do this all the way to BP however my list can extend however the pattern will stay the same.

Ws.range("B2").value=

F & LROW * D1 +

K & LROW * D6 +

P & LROW * D11 +

U & LROW * D16 +

Z & LROW * D21 +

I need to have a string comparison done in a macro,

I have a files with names similar to "TEVT_GURUPRASAD_WEEK08" and a array of strings having names "Guruprasad,AnilKumar,....etc." I Need to match the name in the array and the name in the filename.

The spreadsheet I'm working on is kinda hard to describe, but I'll try.

It's a finance calculator of sorts that I need done, and it shows me the total cost of various products. Each of these products require different components, and numbers of components, and also these components all cost different prices. So what I have is the following spreadsheet setup:

I'm trying to extract specific character from a set of text strings which have irregular patterns. For example:

CJWHCon.D005 - JN Holding Inc Corporate

CUSViWind.D404 - Windows Ringtown Vinyl

My goal is to get only the 'DXXX' which sometimes might be only 'DXX'. I've tried using the following formula but I seem to be going wrong somewhere as I only get 'D'.

=MID(F10,FIND(".",F10)+1,FIND(" ",F10,FIND(" ",F10)+1)-1-FIND(" ",F10))

Need a macro that will autofill in an email pattern from a customer list i recieve. So far i have been having to manually do it.. but when have documents over 3k entries.. ouch.

This is what i got.. hope the way i type it in makes sense

A ..........................B ..........................C

First name........Last Name ............Email Pattern

John ..................Smith ...............First name initial, last name@abc.com

John ..................Smith ...............First name initial, dot, last name@abc.com

John ..................Smith ...............First name, dot, last name@abc.com

John ..................Smith ...............First name, initial of last name@abc.com

Is there a macro i can make that will automatically fill in the email based on the criterea found in column C before the @ symbol? then take the required info from Column a and b?

I am a beginner to VBA and Macros, and I have a fairly complicated macro that I am pressed to make.

I am working with alphanumeric data that is unorganized. Here is an example of what it looks like: ...

I am trying to come up with a formula that will distribute the numbers as shown in this diagram:

To get the value of each number divide 42,000 by the last number in the pattern. For example the fifth column from the left would be 42,000/18. That means that each number would have a value of 2,333.33. By the time you reach the half way mark, nine in that example, you should have around 21,000, and the other 21,000 should be distributed between the last half (block 10 thru 18). The formulas would have to work on all of the patterns. Can anyone think of a way to match the pattern shown? It doesn't have to be exactly the same pattern just as long as the number of blocks remains the same for each half, and they total 21,000 for each half without going over 42,000 all together. There has to be 11 rows from top to bottom.

Is it possible to change the borders/pattern of a single cell so that it looks like the image in the attached document? This may seem a strange thing to want to do, but there is a good reason! Merged cells will not suit my purpose. The pattern palette allows a cell to be filled with horizontal lines, but I need there to be just two lines (i.e. dividing a single cell into three boxes).

Getting two arguments: cell and 'like' pattern (_ _ , *, e.t.c).

As a result returns data that match this pattern.

For example:

1. Cell = "golf car is really comfort", pattern = "_ _ _ _" will return "golf"

2. Cell = "toyota is number one", pattern = " num*" will return "number one"

I am comparing two years' data, one on top of the other (Rows 1 and 2). For each cell in each row, I am referencing a cell from a different tab. This needs to be done with about 290 data items, so 580 rows.

When I attempt to copy the two rows down, it doesn't go in the correct order (skips a cell reference number). It looks like this:

Excel Forum Q.xlsx

It would save me a lot of time considering each of the 580 rows has about 30 different column with each cell referencing various things.

Create a workpattern using something similiar to the Networkdays function. I want to be able to calculate how many working days are between 2 dates if the employee works a non standard Monday to Friday Week. For Example if someone works ever Mon, Tues, Wed how many working days are there for them in June.

I need to perform data mining from a CSV file,and use correlation function to analyse and generate a pattern from the provide data (CSV) for a particular set of error for a given time sample.

Find the CSV file which contains the data which needs to be analysed and generate a pattern.

I have a formula such as below..

=SUMIF('MBX TO DBS'!$G$1:$G$818,"*livedb01*")

This will sum the values in G1-G818 that contain livedb01 on the "MBX TO DBS" sheet, however this is not exactly what I want.. I want the SUM function to look for the livedb01 string in G1-G818 and SUM the values in D1-D818.

So instead it would look for livedb01 text in G column and take the value from D and SUM those once the text qualifier was found in G column..

Is this possible with Excel?

I want the first 60 rows of column C to be constant meaning C1, C2, C3, C4..C59 and after 60 rows it should start again with C1, C2, C3.....C59 rather than C60, C61, C62. In other words i+1 but after 60 rows i should be reset to 1 and then again increase by 1. how can i implement these changes

[Code] ......

I have the following series of formulas consecutively in a single column:

=IF(A3=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2+MATCH(MIN(H3:H50),H3:H50,0),1)),"YES","NO")

=IF(A4=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2+MATCH(MIN(H3:H50),H3:H50,0),1)),"YES","NO")

.

.

.

=IF(A50=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2+MATCH(MIN(H3:H50),H3:H50,0),1)),"YES","NO")

=IF(A51=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2+MATCH(MIN(H51:H98),H51:H98,0),1)),"YES","NO")

=IF(A52=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2+MATCH(MIN(H51:H98),H51:H98,0),1)),"YES","NO")

.

.

.

Effectively, I am comparing the values in each set of 47 to determine which one is the smallest. The smallest entry will get a YES label next to it and all others will get a NO. The problem I am having is the the autofill feature is not correctly detecting the pattern, even if I manually fill in the first 49 entries (shown above). If I hilight all of the above entries and autofill one down, I get the following:

=IF(A53=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2+MATCH(MIN(H53:H100),H53:H100,0),1)),"YES","NO")

It should be:

=IF(A53=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2+MATCH(MIN(H51:H98),H51:H98,0),1)),"YES","NO")

Basically I need the H:H: reference to stay constant, but only for 47 cells at a time. After that, both the lower and upper bound should increase by 47. Is there any way to indicate this to Excel? Manually typing in the new formula every 47 entries isn't practical because the spreadsheet has thousands of entries. How I can accomplish this using a single formula and autofill?

I created a vba procedure for a particular job but within that procedure I need to perform another task. I've been trying to come up with a regular expression but to no avail. I'm looking to loop through a range of cells for any string where there isn't a space before and after a hyphen. When occurance is matched, then replace with spaces. One exception to the rule would be if data is contained within parentheses, then ignore. There could be zero occurances in string to many.

ie.

abc - def ==> ok, s/b skipped

abc - def (nnn-mmmm ooo) ==> ok, s/b skipped

abc-def (nnn-mmmm ooo) ==> abc - def (nnn-mmmm ooo)

abc- def (nnn-mmmm ooo) ==> abc - def (nnn-mmmm ooo)

abc -def (nnn-mmmm ooo) ==> abc - def (nnn-mmmm ooo)

abc-def ==> abc - def

abc- def ==> abc - def

abc -def ==> abc - def

I am new in extracting data from excel .

There is a report that contains a various amount data, in one cell it describes the outcome in a summary format of how an issue was resolved.

Is it possible to search a cell of summary text that contains a set pattern with letters & numbers i.e."CL900962" then either place a "YES" or "NO" in another cell if found?

The pattern will always begin with letters "CL" followed by 6 digit number.
