Replace All Symbols With Text

May 8, 2013

I am importing content control information in a word file into excel by using a macro in excel. The information is coming across nicely but when the information about a checkbox comes across, in excel, that's what you see, a checkbox (☐ or ☒). Is there any way (formula or vba) to replace all the checkboxes with a yes or a no?

I wrote a formula that works:


But this will add this information to a new column and I would like to replace the information in the existing column (the form has about 200 checkboxes) and I don't want to add a bunch of new columns.

I also toyed with VBA:

Range("G1:G100").Replace "&", "No"

But when I try to paste the ☐ in the vba code, I get a "?" so I am assuming it doesn't recognize the ☐ as a valid character.

Lotus 123 Had A Function: Show Plus Symbols(+) Or Negative Symbols (-) For The Value Of The Data

Aug 1, 2009

Lotus 123 had a function where you could graphically, in a cell, show plus symbols(+) or negative symbols (-) for the value of the data. For example if you had a column of numbers that you calculated from the previous year that indicate the change, Lotus, in the next cell would allow you to graphically display the symbols that indicate the strength of the change. So if your result was a positive ten then ten plus symbols would be shown. If it was -20 then 20 negative symbols would be shown. Now the numbers I am looking at could be 600,00 and I believe there was a way to to proportion the symbols for example for every 100,000 put in one symbol so the result would be 6 (+) signs.

Jan 5, 2009

is possible to have a drop down list where you can type in the first few letters of a word and have the drop down list go to the the words that begin with those first few letters instead of having to scroll down the entire list to find the word / item you are looking for.

I ask since the drop down list may end up having up to 1000 words in it.

How To Replace Cell Value From A List

Apr 23, 2013

I have the following data in sheet 1. In Sheet 2, column A contains a list of data.

What I need to do is to compare data in Column C (sheet 1) to Column A (sheet 2).

If it matches, then Cell value in A will change to be the same value as B.

For example, range C1 of sheet 1 matches that of Range A2 in Sheet 2, then range A1 of Sheet 1 becomes the value of B1.

How can I use VBA to achieve this? Do note the data in Sheet 1 and sheet 2 changes all the time. It can be more or less.

Sheet 1


Sheet 2

Using List To Replace Cell Values

Feb 2, 2013

I want to replace the values in column A if a unique value is identified on a particular row. Here's some sample data from Column A

A2= 01/16 Petsmart Inc 1372 Miami FL Card 7777
A3= 02/13 Sir Nicks Brodhead WI Card 7777
A4= 01/05 Canal Center Walk C37436 Orlando Fl Card 7777
A5= 01/24 Shell Oil 5744417710 Atlanta GA Card 7777
A6= 8/12 05 Canal Center Walk C37436 Orlando Fl Card 7777
A7=09/01 05 Canal Center Walk C37436 Orlando Fl Card 7777
A8=12/21 Top Deck Bridges C37436 Denver CO Card 7777

Here's my list in cells D2:D6

Canal Center Walk
Sir Nicks
Top Deck Cafe

I created a list of values in Column D then created the below formula in column B and replicated it down.


What I would like the formula to do is look at the list in column D. If a particular row shows a match for that text string it will populate that value in column B, but delete everything preceding the text value and after.

Ex: A2 = 01/16 Petsmart Inc 1372 Miami FL Card 7777
B2 should = Petsmart

Column Letters- VBA Command To Get The Letters

Nov 17, 2009

Is there a VBA command to get the letters, instead of the numbers, of the column of a selected cell?

I have to letter a list whihc means setting up a loop using character codes.

I may have to go into double letters so I am working on how I would set up the loop for if and when it gets past 90 and starts on double letters. so far the highest is the letter "U"

of course the easiest would be to pick up a column value as a letter

NT values do not get a number

A_____ _____NT###
D____ _______NT####

i am guessing the loop might involve some arithmetic test between the count and the character set 65-90. or maybe a mod thing.

Replace Words In Cell Matching Those In A List

May 21, 2009

Im hoping there is an Excel Formula (not VBA Code) solution to this problem.

I understand how to use the Substitute command in Excel, but I would like to be able to provide a list of words and have the Substitute command use that list to replace every occurrence within a given cell with a blank ("").

The twist to this is, that the List of Words will be Dynamic, and thus the formula will need to account for that.

NOTE: the formula should NOT replace parts of words, e.g., if the List Word is "can" and the cell to be evaluated contains "candle" the formula should NOT replace the "can" in "candle" with "". Only whole word matches should be replaced.

Clear & Replace Validation List Based On Value Chosen From Another

Mar 17, 2008

See attached spreadsheet, in sheet 1, yellow columns are for restricted cells and Sheet 2 contains the lists for such columns' validation range. Sub-Strategy is dependent on the choice made from Main-Strategy, e.g. if Main-startegy = EquityHedge, then the choices for sub-strategy can only choose Long Biased, Low Beta & opportunistic. But I also have a "Other" category under Main Strategy, Sheet 2 cell G1, if this is chosen then I would like to remove the data validation in the sub-strategy column, (i.e. u can input anything for sub-strategy) how can I do this?

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

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

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