I'm trying to go through a short list of letters and change the contents of every cell in the list that contains a "c" into a "M". I've written this code, but I get a #Value! message on my spreadsheet when I run it:

Function FindCpmDpm(SearchRng As Range)

For Each CelRng In SearchRng

If CelRng.Value = "c" Then
CelRng.Value = "M"
End If

Next CelRng

End Function

I am having trouble accessing the cell which contains the "c".

Replace Specific Character ONLY If Its LAST In The Sheet

Nov 27, 2013

Switched to Excel after using OpenOffice and I'm stuck on knowing what an old a 'find and replace' formula would be in Excel. It would remove a specific character (or word) ONLY if it was the last characters in a cell.

The old find and replace for open office:
Find: (.*)/$
Replace: $1

It's not that important now to delete a word, mainly the last slash '/' ONLY if it's the last character e.g. this data has 2 rows with a '/' as the last character

website.com/page
website.com/page/
website.com/page/page/

Running my old find and replace formula would remove the last slashes, but leave the others

website.com/page
website.com/page
website.com/page/page

Need simple replacement to the find and replace but a formula is also right.

Unwanted Character, Can Not Search And Replace

Dec 18, 2007

I have a sheet that I often have to edit and import into SQL database.

I have no control over the format of the sheet given to me and it seems that something has changed causing me the following problem.

When I try to import the Data itís showing ten times as many items than are actually there.

The problem I think is in a text column. Iíve tested this by using an old column from a previous sheet and pasting this into the new sheet and I can import it ok.

What I seem to have is a rectangular box character but Iím not sure what it is.
I can copy and past it into Notepad as it is, but pasted into Word it seems to be a carriage Return.

So whether itís an actual charter or not Iím not sure.

Are there any tools out there so I can hover over characters in Excel to see what it is! So at least I can be sure what Iím trying to Search and Replace?

Remove / Replace ONLY FIRST Occurrence Of First Character In All Rows Of Column?

Jul 30, 2013

I need to remove the first character in each row of a column, but only its first occurrence in each row. For instance:

Say, column 2 has following data (lots of rows, by the way):

First Text" - "blabla"
=SomeText2 = "blabla"
SomeText3 = "blabla"
=SomeText4 = "blabla"
-SomeText5 --- "blabla"
........
....

I would like to use the VBA code to remove ONLY the FIRST occurrence of the FIRST character specified (either "=" or "-") in each row in that column, so that I get:

First Text" - "blabla"
SomeText2 = "blabla"
SomeText3 = "blabla"
SomeText4 = "blabla"
SomeText5 --- "blabla"
......
...and so on...

I tried to use this:

Code:
Columns(2).Cells.Replace What:="-", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
ReplaceFormat:=False
Columns(2).Cells.Replace What:="=", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
ReplaceFormat:=False
but it replaces ALL occurrences of "=" and "-" and that is not what I need.

I also tried this code:

Code:
With Range("B:B")
.Value = Replace(.Value, "=", "", 1, 1)
End With

But It doesn't work either.

Replace Small Square Character With Line Break After Import

Nov 18, 2008

When importing text from a CSV, the 'line returns' appear in a cell as a small square with faded left and right sides. The do force a line break as intended. However, they are a nuisance in reading and printing.

When I use ALT+ENTER to force a line break, there is no visible character (on screen or printed) for the line break, which is as it should be.

How can I replace this 'special character' line break with one not visible?

Find And Replace Matching Cells Across Multiple Sheets

Dec 11, 2013

Following Excel task I am trying to complete:

I have an Excel file with multiple sheets and I want to find and replace matching cell data on the same row across all of the sheets. For example, I have two columns, Column A and Column C and 10 sheets. I want to only replace the content in Column A if text matches both Column A and Column C on the same row. So, I want to be able to search for the following data across all sheets:

Column A = "car"
Column C = "yellow"

If both "car" and "yellow" are found in Column A and Column C on the same row, then replace "car" in Column A with "truck".

Is there a way to do this automatically as I have few hundred to find and replace?

Find And Replace Multiple Values Within Individual Cells?

Mar 13, 2014

So I have a list of organizations in Column A, with multiple names (anywhere from 0 to 50 names) for each org. in Column B.

Org
Names
Company A
Brown, Jones, Smith, West

[Code]...

I want to do a find and replace for all of Column B, where all the names are replaced with their respective color values. If possible, I'd like this to all happen with the individual cells (so for example, B3 might go from "Brown, Jones, Smith" to "Red, Red, Blue").

If that's not possible, I could divide all the names into individual cells and then find and replace.
