Replace Values Between Two Keywords In A Column?

Jan 31, 2014

I have data in which there are important keywords within a row (e.g.,# Message: FacesSc0_1) that are 'boundary markers' for data that is relevant to me. What I want to do is to select the data in the column between two such keywords, replace them all with the same specific value, and delete the other rows.

For example a column may look like this:

534.88
534.78
# Message: FacesSc0_1
534.78
534.55
534.59
# Message: FacesSc0_2
534.55
534.55
# Message: FacesSc0_3
534.78
534.55
534.59
# Message: FacesSc0_4

I would like to replace the values in the cells between "# Message: FacesSc0_1" and "# Message: FacesSc0_1" with the value 1, delete the values between "# Message: FacesSc0_2" and "# Message: FacesSc0_3", and replace the values in the cells between "# Message: FacesSc0_3" and "# Message: FacesSc0_4" with value 2. The resulting column would be reduced to this:

# Message: FacesSc0_1
1
1
1
# Message: FacesSc0_2
# Message: FacesSc0_3
2
2
2
# Message: FacesSc0_4

Range Between Two Keywords In Specific Column

Jan 11, 2014

Currently running a macro which selects all the rows between two specific words and pastes the selection into another worksheet. However, it runs this search on the entire workbook, whereas I'd just like it to run the search in a particular column (column D in this instance).

This is the code as it currently stands:

VB:
With ActiveSheet
.Range(.Cells.Find("financial assets"), .Cells.Find("liabilities")).EntireRow.Select
End With

.Selection.Copy
Sheets("Paste Currency").Activate
Range("A1").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False

Is there any way to focus the search on only one column?

Find Keywords Within Cell Text Of Another Column?

Nov 8, 2013

I'm evaluating the effectiveness of a keyword list we use to identify certain, high priorit,y medical situations from a string of text.

So, I have a column on a sheet of data (EIS Report!"B:B") in this case, and a seperate column on another sheet with keywords (Keywords!"A2:A47").

I use the formula ={OR(NOT(ISERROR(FIND(keywords!$A$2:$A$47,$B2))))} to identify if any of the keywords exist in the string.
This works well but I would like to improve my work in two ways:

1 - Identfiy, in another column on the EIS report sheet, which keyword it is that's been found within the string,
2 - On the keyword sheet, add another column of words, which if found within the string, would act as an exclusion.For example, I might use "STAB" as a keyword to look for "Male stabbed" etc, however might want to exclude "STABBING" to stop the solution triggering on "STABBING PAINS IN ABDO"

How might i adjust my formula?

How To Categorize List / Column Into Separate Ones By Finding Keywords

Jul 28, 2014

Say I have a list:

VB:
Something something apple
Something something orange
Something something banana
Something apple something
Something banana something
Apples woo
Apples And bananas
Something orange something
Something something apple pie
Something something vegetables

And I want to separate the list into separate columns/lists with certain keywords (e.g. apple, orange, banana) like so:

Apple
Something something apple
Something apple something
Apples woo
Something something apple pie

[Code] .....

The "multiple words found" part isn't a big deal (I'm not sure how I'd deal with it anyways). The "Unsorted" part is there assuming creating the separate lists won't remove the entries from the original list (which would then leave all the unsorted text).

Identify Specific Keywords (plural) In A Column Of Text

Nov 3, 2009

So i'm try to automate a process that I currently do using filters.

Here is the problem:

I have a list of text in a column (usually 700 or so entries).

I need to remove any entries that contain 1 of 42 keywords.

So I need a fast way to search each cell for each one of the 42 key words and flag the cell for deletion if contains anyone of the 42.

example
A
1 This field has keyword1
2 This field has keyword2
3 This field doesn't have any of the 42 keywords

somewhere else I would have a list of keywords in a column.

Excel 2003 :: Find And Replace Missing The Ability To Replace Values?

Feb 5, 2009

This problem has come up fairly frequently lately, and I'm not sure how to fix it, or if this is by design...but in Excel 2003 I can't seem to do a "Find and Replace" based on the value of a cell. I can do a find, based on cell value, but the moment I change to the replace tab, the "values" and "comments" are missing from the "look in" dropdown.

I've only noticed this when I'm trying to replace on a filtered list, so I'm not sure if that is part of the issue.

Perhaps an alternative way of arriving at the same goal. Basically I have a worksheet with a number of filtered columns. They are filtered just right, using custom filtering, and so I do not want to undo the filters. In some columns I have formulas that are returning #VALUE! errors. I'd like to replace all of these cells with NA.

Replace Values In Range Of Cells With Varying Values?

Mar 14, 2013

I am trying to replace a range of cells with certain values but I can not figure it out. I'm almost there I think but don't know how to get the varying values I'm looking for. So I have a column (AJ in this instance) that has a bunch of "xx" values at different spots within the column. I want to replace those xx values with numbers 01 through 36. What I have below gets me just about there but it replaces every xx value with 01. How do I get it to go 01 on the first one, 02 on the second one, etc?

/code
Dim cell As Range
For Each cell In Range("AJ1", Cells(Rows.Count, "AJ").End(xlUp))
If cell.Value = "xx" Then _
cell.Value = "01"
Next cell
/code

Find Multiple Numbers In One Column And Replace With Single Phrase In Another Column

Jan 31, 2013

I have taken over this spreadsheet for my work, and it is basically a statement in excel. What I want to do is find a list of invoice numbers in column B populated from a remittance, and then replace column F to say a specific thing depending on check number and date paying for that invoice. So if a check printed today I would have it replace column f to say paid 1/31/13 check # xxxxx. Currently I am searching for each invoice indivudually and then replacing with check number and date. There are about 200 invoices per month that I deal with, and it is a big waste of time!

For example from this

invoice #1 / reconciled (DATE)
invoice #2 / reconciled (DATE)

To this:

invoice #1 / paid (DATE) check # (xxxxx)
invoice #2 / paid (DATE) check # (xxxxx)

Replace The Values

Feb 28, 2009

I have a workbook with two worksheets. The first is called Input and in cells C3 a product code is entered and in cell D7 the value and F10 the description.

The second sheet called History has a range of Product codes in cells AA5:CD5, AA4:CD4 holds values and AA8:CD8 descriptions.

Now for the intersting part, I need a macro to run that looks at the value in cell C3 of the input sheet and if a match can be found in cells AA5:CD5 of the History sheet then the value from D7 would replace the value in AA4:CD4 and F10 would replace the value in AA8:CD8.

Example if cell C3 has RJ12345 as the product, D7 reads 15.10 and D7 reads towel.

The code RJ12345 is foound in cell BC5 then cell BC4 would be replaced with the value 15.10 and BC6 would have the worf towel entered.

Replace Value From One Column On A Range Of Rows On Other Column

Aug 24, 2012

I have a table in the format below. Pin_11 in this table is CLK and Pin_12 is STRB. I want to replace Pin_11 with PIN_CLK. Basically I want to look for CLK in Column3 and record what ever is in Column1 and Column2 on the same row (base row). For every repetion of that value in column1 and column2, in the rows above and below the base row, I want to replace column 2 with PIN_<column3 value>.

See below for initial table in column 1,2,3 and final result in column 6,7,8. I have a huge file this format of data that I need to end and was wondering if there is a script or formula to do it.

How Do I Replace Numeric Values Only

Jan 20, 2009

When using the replace rule in Excel, you can use "?" to represent a standard variable, e.g. if you had the text "Bottle 100g", and you set the replace rule as "?g", it would delete the "g" and the four characters before it, leaving you with "Bottle".

However, if I have lots of replace rules to make in a file, and I only want to eliminate the numerical values before a letter, how do I go about doing this?

For example, if I had the text "Dog food 10g", and I made a replace rule "??g", it would leave me with " food ". What I would really need, is a way of taking away the numeric values before the "g", which would give me "Dog food".

Therefore, is there a unique identifier for numeric and/or text values?

Replace Values Greater Than 200?

Nov 4, 2010

I want to replace all numbers in the worksheet which are greater than 200 with 200. I mean all numbers greater than 200 should be set to 200. values are not all in the same column or same row, they are spread throughout the worksheet. I tried using the Find and Replace, but it can replace only a specified value with only another specified value. I want to use some kind of a filter which will choose all numbers greater than 200, and make them 200.

Formula To Replace Values If Another Exists?

May 14, 2014

So I have this formula to basically lookup the letters in column L and if certain letters exist, then change those letters to another letter. Here is my Formula:

=IF(L1="A",IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH("B",$L$1:$L$200,0)),"B",L1),IF(L1="D",IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH("E",$L$1:$L$200,0)),"E",L1),
IF(L1="L",IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH("L",$L$1:$L$200,0)),"O",L2),IF(L2="F",IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH("K",$L$1:$L$200,0)),"K",L1),L1))))

For example: if column L looks like

A
B
A
E
D

Then it would convert the A's to B's since there is a B present and D's to E's, but if the B and E hadn't been in the equation then it would leave the A's and D's as they are. WIth this formula the output looks like:
B
B
B
E
E

My problem with this formula is that it only recognizes the first letter in each column. Sometimes I have multiple letters in a column and I need it to recognize them and change accordingly.

For example:
A
D_B
E

I would like to have it change to
B
E_B
E

I have attached a sample workbook that may make it more clear... If a VBA code would work better then I would be open to that as well. Combining question.xlsx

Find And Replace COLOR Of Values?

Is there a way to find specific values and change their colors all at once in xls?

For example, if it looked like:

1 4 5 3 7
4 2 6 3 1
5 9 2 6 4

And if I tell it to change every 4 to red, it'd be like:

1 4 5 3 7
4 2 6 3 1
5 9 2 6 4

Or changing the cells' color would be ok, too.
