Return True / False If String Of Words Is Present In Another List?

Dec 5, 2013

I have two lists, one that is 99,000 lines and the other is 150. I am trying to find out where the word(s) in the list of 150 is present in the list 99,000.

1st list of 99,000 is in Sheet1 A1-A99000 and the second list is in Sheet2 B1-B150.

The caveat is that in column A there is additional words in that cell so you can not do a simple vlookup, because there may or may not be an exact match.

I have been stuck for hours and the best i can get is to use the match function but it is not working because it is not exact. Last thing i want to do is use the CTRL F key to lookup all the words.

Return True/False If Cell Contains Formula

Apr 7, 2009

Is there a formula or VB code like the =TYPE() function that will return whether a cell contains a FORMULA? Here's the issue:

I'm writing a macro to update 10,000 sheets. Each sheet has a column that I'm updating with a new formula. Some of these formulas have been previously overwritten with a random number that would delete the formula from the cell. I have to leave the overwritten values where there is no formula, and replace the values of the formulas where they are still intact. I assume that if I can identify whether there is a formula in the cell or not, I can choose that cell to skip or update.

Function Design Return True Or False

Jul 27, 2009

I'm trying to determine if a rangeName is defined so that I can delete it without a programming error. I've used the idea that if I try to goto a non-existant rangeName, I'll get an error. I've tried to design a function that will return true or false if the rangeName is defined on the basis of that idea. Can you take a look at the code and see where I went wrong?

Return True / False If Specific Criteria Met Between Worksheets In Same Workbbok

May 28, 2014

First one: The thought process is that inbound inventory data is logged on one sheet; outbound inventory data logged on another within the same workbook. When specific data from the inbound sheet (LPN column) is 'shipped' and entered on the outbound sheet, that specific data needs to be verified against the order number it was intended to ship against and if everything lines up, to have a TRUE value returned, or FALSE if not.

Second one: same type of thing - I'd like to look for the same specific criteria (LPN) between the inbound and outbound worksheets and if the same LPN is found on the outbound sheet, to return a value of "SHIPPED".

Third and fourth - same deal again except this time, would like to tie back the outbound Destination and ship date data from the outbound worksheet to the inbound worksheet.

A copy of the workbook is attached for reference with cells that require formulas highlighted in yellow on the inbound sheet and data cells from which the formulas will verify data in green on the outbound sheet.

Reconciliation Formula(s) - VLookup Two Cells And Return TRUE / FALSE For Match?

Mar 26, 2014

I'm trying to create a rec report, ideally on one page, for multiple criteria. The situation is we get a report on our trade positions (investment stuff) from an outside service we use. We also have a report internally from what we've booked. We're looking to tie out are basic things like price, original par, revised par, trade date, counter-party banks, etc. I've consolidated data from both sources on one page (DATA) where all data points are lined up (say EXTERNAL is from rows 1-500, and INTERNAL is 510-1010). Now I need to create a front page showing the result of each tie-out. The lookup value will be a combination of the fund name + trade ticket number which would almost guarantee a unique ID (fund name XYZ, ticket number 12345 = XYZ12345)

Current tabs on spreadsheet: DATA, EXTERNAL, INTERNAL. I need to add a REC page

Question: What formula can I use to check on each and return TRUE/FALSE? The goal is to have about 8 columns on the REC, each for one of the tie-outs (let's use price as an example.). I know the basic VLOOKUP to return one value, but it appears in this case I will need VLOOKUP to check two matching values based on unique ID XZY12345, compare the price, and return TRUE if they match, FALSE if they don't

Here's something I saw from one of our spreadsheets that I think does the same to confirm counter-party, though I have no idea how to read this lengthy formula.

=EXACT(VLOOKUP(IF(Q2="COMPANY",R2,Q2),FUNDS!$M$1:$N$400,2,FALSE),
INDEX(PENDING!$G$4:$G$3218,MATCH(CP!C2,PENDING!$N$4:$N$3218,0)))

True/false With Lookup List/pivot Table Data

May 15, 2009

I want to compare a hand entered data sheet to my system data. System data is exported in. Then that data is used to populate a pivot table. I use a lookup list that fills in matching data from my hand typed sheet. From there I want to use true/false to see if the data matches. However, the formula will not copy down. I am sure it has to do with the formula holding a value, but I canít seem to correct it.

Recap
1.System data populates sheet
2.Pivot table pulls info I need.
3.Lookup list cross references hand entered data sheet and puts value next to pivot table.
4.I need to do a true false to see if data matches but canít get it to work

Example worksheet: On the worksheet you can see that the true false statements are incorrect. The system data and the hand entered data match two times not once.

Remove "TRUE" & "FALSE" Words From A Linked Checkbox

Hide Checkbox TRUE/FALSE & Sum Values Adjacent To TRUE

Aug 2, 2009

I have a worksheet where I have around 300 rows, each with 7 columns. What I want to do is add a checkbox to each column. I plan on setting non-applicable checkboxes to mixed status and locking the worksheet. I will unlock applicable checkboxes and sumif or countif their value according to row-based scoring, for example, each checked checkbox represents a value of 3. I do not know VBA and have chose to use the form control checkboxes rather than ActiveX.

I believe that a formula for this would be something like: =SUMIF(B1:B3,True,"3") or =COUNTIF($B$1:$B$3,True)*3

I am wondering firstly if I have that right and secondly if there is a way to stop my checkboxes from displaying labels. Currently, if I click on one it displays True behind the active checkbox. If I uncheck it, it displays False.

Return Values Of Adjacent Cells When Condition Is True Omitting Values Where Condition Is False?

Jan 15, 2014

Here's a simplified example:

ColA
ColB
ColC

Row1
A
Y
A

Row2
B
N
D

[Code] .........

I'm looking to return the values in column A adjacent to the cells in Column B equal to "Y". The kicker has been returning only the cells where the condition is true. Column C displays the desired behavior.

The closest I've been able to get is with a simple IF statement but I'm pretty sure the answer is a far cry away from there and likely requires an array formula. I'd prefer not to use VLOOKUP or OFFSET but will if the alternative is very complex.

Find List And Count All Words Within A Text String?

Feb 26, 2014

I have uploaded my spreadsheet.

I have a column of text strings on Sheet1, Column A, which I need to check for the presence of keywords listed on Sheet2, Column A

So if any word from the keyword list on Sheet2, Column A is found in, say, cell A2 of Sheet1, the cell to its right (B1) should have a formula to display the count of keywords found in A2. I also would like to see each keyword identified either through a highlight or a list. I need the formula to NOT be case sensitive and the match does not have to be for whole words).

DATE Function & IF Function (return A TRUE Or FALSE Based On A Date In A Cell)

Dec 8, 2009

I am trying to return a TRUE or FALSE based on a date in a cell.

for example:

if cell A1 = 07/11/2009

I want A2 to show TRUE or FALSE if A1 is 14 days or more behind todays date.

I have tried stuff like:

=IF(A1=TODAY()-14,"True","False")

but it just always says false. EDIT: I have just noticed that if I change the date in A1 to exactly 14 days behind todays, it returns TRUE. So, it does work. Do I need to add a GREATER THAN in there?

So in a way, what I need is a a bit like the SEARCH function, only that I need to find multiple FIND_TEXT values. If just one of the names in D1:D10 is found, the formula should return TRUE.

Formula To Return Number Of Continuous True Values At The End Of A List

Apr 9, 2014

I have two data columns: the first is a list of the last 100 calendar dates, and the second is an ON/OFF (or 1/0 if you prefer) value corresponding to each date. If the last value in the second column list is ON, I want to find how many continuous days the value has been ON for. If the last value in the second column is OFF, I want it to return a zero. Note that in the 100 day span of data, the value may switch between ON and OFF several times, but I only want the continuous, uninterrupted ON days at the end of the date range.
