Find/Search String & Copy Row To Another Worksheet

Jun 18, 2008

I would simply like a Macro to 'find' or search keyword data in a spreadsheet and copy the chosen rows and past them into a new excel sheet. I want to be able to do that as many time as I need, currently I have the following code, it does not seem to work well for me, I can only use it to search one time, cause an error after that

Sub FindIt()
Dim rngWB As Range, c As Range
Dim strFind As String, firstAddress As String
Dim wsCount As Integer, ws As Integer
Dim rw As Long
strFind = Application.InputBox("Type in the name you wish to find.", "FindIt", Type:=2)
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Worksheets.Add(After:=Worksheets(Worksheets.Count)).Name = "Blank"

Find Copy And Paste All Entries Matching Search String On Mac PC

Feb 8, 2014

This follows on from my previous posting [URL] ..... which produced a solution using an ActiveX Combobox that unfortunately does not work on Mac PCs!

I tried to replace the ActiveX with a Form Control Combobox but could not make it work.

So I am trying to use the alternative of "find, copy and paste" the relevant information.

As shown on the attached 140207 FINDALL test.xlsm, I need to find all records containing whatever string is entered into the "Search" cell, and copy data form three columns onto the Entry sheet.

The User will then select whichever of the entries they want to use, which will populate the relevant cells.

Problem: The following Code is not recognising any of the data in the Column being searched.

Option Explicit
Dim ws As Worksheet, i As Integer, k As Integer, z As Integer, CL, myFind, CHOICE As Range, lr As String, lrG As String,

[Code] ......

FIND LAST Occurrence Of String

Nov 12, 2013

I understand that the function FIND(find_text, within_text, start_num) will find the first occurrence of a stated string. And by adjusting the start_num, you can skip a set number of characters before the search begins.

But, is there a way to find the Last occurrence of said string? In my case the find_text string may occur multiple times in the variable length within_text cell to be searched.

Sample: Find the last occurrence of MDU


In the above 2 sample strings the output of the Find() function needs to be 26 & 40. Having a cell formula would be desirable, but if it can only be done by VBA that is acceptable, also.

How To Search For Duplicates In A String Across A Range Of Cells

Apr 7, 2009

if I have a column of 5 cells (E1-E5) that contain a single character, how would I search a range of columns and rows (A1/5 - D1/5) with these?

So if E1-E5 each contain "1", i would like to return true when one (or more) of the A - D columns also contain "1" in each of its cells.

Columns A - D will contain a string of more than one character so it needs to search the string.

E1 = 1
E2 = 1
E3 = 1
E4 = 1
E5 = 1 and
A1 = 123
A2 = 134
A3 = 142
A4 = 412
A5 = 213

I would like this to return true because the A cells do contain the values in the E cells.

I guess this is like looking for duplicates but with a search string twist!

Search For Part Of String In Range Of Cells

Jan 17, 2012

Following problem:

I have a list of changes on our bankaccount.

Sometimes, in the description a payment we receive the name of the person who transferred the amount is mentionned.

It can be anywhere in the string, it can be just his/her first name, it can be his/her full name...

I also have a list of all our clients with first name in column A, second name in column B

Something like this:

string from bancaccount:


client list
Francois D'hondt
Germaine Canipel
Willy Vandersmissen
Karel D'hondt

I'd like VBA to search in the clientlist for names that occur in the bankaccount string.

Sice ther might be a lot of Willy's in the client lsit I think it will be best to serch for the combination of both first and second name.

Once found the name the procedure should return the rownumer on which the client can be found in the client list.

Search Range Of Cells For Alphanumeric String

Mar 5, 2010

I tried to find out how to post my table but the link in that thread lead me to a notice saying I wasn't allowed access to the page.)

Cells A2:G2 contain various alphanumeric strings.

If any cell contains "SD#" (# = a number which might include decimal places) then I want to extract the number.

If more than one cell contains "SD#", I want to add the numbers together. The total goes in cell C6 and it needs to change if the contents of A2:G2 change. E.g. if A2 shows SD4.75 and B2 shows SD8, the total in C6 would be 12.75

So I'm looking for a formula for C6....

Vlookup To Return Second Occurrence Of String

Mar 14, 2007

I have multiple automatically updating data sets and I need to extract certain data to perform calculations on, this is the format of the data

HOME 20 6 1 0
AWAY 20 7 2 0
HOME 2 0 1
AWAY 3 1 4

basically, what I need is to extract the data for home and away, and put them each on one line, no problem if this is always the format, but there are other lines of data that I don't need thrown in there at times which shift the data up or down
a simple vlookup will extract the first occurance of home, but I need another formula to extract the second occurance so I can have them all on one line and have the data as:

HOME 20 6 1 0 2 0 1
AWAY 20 7 2 0 3 1 4

Conditional Copy Routine: Macro To Search A Column For A Specific Text String

Oct 5, 2009

I am trying to write a macro to search a column for a specific text string which when found, will copy the whole row the string is in. Once this row has been copied, I then want the macro to activate a new sheet and search for the next available empty row to paste the data. Once this has been done, go back to the original sheet and find the next cell in the original column with the specified text string and repeat until the range has been satisfied.

Macro To Search String In A Range Of Cells And Replace While Leaving Original

Jul 25, 2014

So I was given the task to translate some procedure instructions in an Excel file from English to Spanish. These are very simple instructions and in most cases repetitive throughout the document. There are a lot of instances where the instructions are the same except for a #. They are meant to be modified within the cell as the text that appears in the cell will be printed exactly as it appears.There are several instructions in the cell, it is basically a long continuous string in the cell. My idea is to create a macro that can search that range of cells for the instruction, replace it with the Spanish equivalent while leaving the original English instruction in the cell.

Search And Copy Cells Across Sheets

Jul 11, 2013

Copying cells. It is across 2 sheets.

The cells I want to fill are in column V in sheet 2. ie v10, v11, v12, etc.

On sheet 2 column d contains an item count and V is the count of that item.

Then on sheet 1 column ranges (B4 To B49) (G4 To G49) (L4 To L49) (Q4 To Q49) contains the relevant item code to column D on sheet 2. Also on sheet one the count section that I want copied into V on sheet 2 which is columns D,I, N,S 4-49 etc..

My issue is that sheet 1 is constantly rearranging and sheet 2 is in numerical order of column D.

So how do I get sheet 2 V10 to populate by searching for the item code of D10 on sheet 2 in B,G,L,Q of sheet 1 then once located to then copy the contents of the number from D,I,N,S that works with the item list?

Then once done this that I can copy the formula all the way down column V in sheet 2?

I need to search a sheet for a specific phrase "phrase". When the phrase occurs I need to copy adjacent cells into another sheet. Then, I need to continue searching through the end of the sheet for all other occurrences, copying them into the other sheet. For example: "Phrase" occurs in cell B2, B20, B42, and B82 of Sheet1.
When it occurs in B2 I need to copy C2 and D3 into Sheet 2, cells B2 and C2.
Then when it occurs again in B20 I need to copy C20 and D21 into Sheet 2, cells B3 and C3.

I have a spreadsheet which has "Employee: [agent 1 name]" in column A and it may or may not have the word "Break" in the same column before it mentions "Employee: [agent 2 name]". The amount of data between agent 1 and agent 2 varies and am needing code which will insert a row above "Employee: [agent 2 name]" if "Break" is not found, and add the word "Break" in column A on the inserted row. I would need this to loop through the spreadsheet until all 100+ agents have been searched.

I'm also needing this done for the word "Meeting" and would insert a row 2 rows above the next agent.

Find String And Copy / Paste Given Cells

Jul 22, 2014

There are two problems to solve :

My Excel workbook is composed of 2 sheets. The first one is a Dashboard (Sheet1) and the second one (Sheet13) is where the data is.

I would like to press a button on the first one, enter the text to be found into an Inputbox and then copy-paste cells from the second sheet (containing the data) into the first one.

The data is structured in rows, from A to V columns.

I would like, according the row where is located the found cell, copy given given cells from Sheet13 to Sheet1.

Right now, I have a macro performing the search like desired and selecting the found cell :

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Dim FindString As String
Dim Rng As Range
FindString = InputBox("Entrer le contrat de support - rechercher (DSI....) ")
If Trim(FindString) "" Then
With Sheet13.Range("V:V")
Set Rng = .Find(What:="*" & FindString & "*", _

[Code] .......

I would like to copy cells located in the columns A, B, D, E, F, K, S, (T:U) from the row where the searched string has been found in Sheet13. It has to be copied on Sheet1, on two rows : (N29:Q29) & (N30:Q30).

When a new research is done, the previously copied cells should be cleared out.

2. The second point is about duplicating a button with an associated macro. The macro is running like I want but I have to insert 299 more buttons, with the updated formula according to the row where it is located.

However, one part of the macro has to stay the same because all of these 300 buttons increment a single counter located on Sheet1.

Sub Button2600_Click() If MsgBox("Etes-vous sûr de vouloir ajouter 1 année de support pour" & vbNewLine & Range("E7") & " " & "(" & Range("F7") & ")" & " ?", vbYesNo + vbQuestion, "Modification du Contrat de Support") = vbYes Then
Sheet13.[A7] = DateAdd("yyyy", 1, [A7])
MsgBox "Contrat étendu d'une année."
Dim x As Integer
x = Sheet1.[R11].Value
Sheet1.[R11].Value = x + 1
End If
End Sub

Search Information On Pivot Table And Copy Value In Cells With Offset

Dec 5, 2011

I'm using a code to search some information in a pivot table and copy the value in the cells with offset(0,1) and is very very slow, I tryed another method with the using of Find but isn't working: error message: missing object in the with cycle.

Here is the working code:

Dim DataFine, DataInizio, UltimaRiga, Gg As Date
Dim NomeMacchina, Plant As String
Dim Cl As Object
Dim Pr As String
Application.ScreenUpdating = False

[Code] .......

Here is the code who doesn't work

For i = 6 To 500
Giorno = Sheets("OEE03").Cells(i, 2)
With Sheets("01")
Pr = Range("A5:A500").Find(Giorno).Offset(0, 1).Value
Sheets("OEE03").Cells(i, 9).Value = Pr
End With

if I use this code on a normal sheet it works but when I try to use it on a Pivot table fields give me always the error message.

Calculate Only Last Occurrence Or Occurrence Before Specified Number

Dec 24, 2013

I'm getting an export from a CDR. This export contains the date and times people log on and off from a queue. For logging in they dial 511, for logging out they dial 512. They get a voice prompt and type their password. I need to know how much time they daily spend in this queue

At first this looks pretty easy. I just make a sum of all the times they called to 511, then a sum of all time they called to 512 and finally I substract those values and I end up with the correct time spend in the queue.

The problem comes when they call multiple times to 512 without actually logging off. For example, they type the wrong password or simply hang up.

Result is this in the CDR

101 511 23/12 08:34
101 512 23/12 11:58
101 511 23/12 12:34
101 512 23/12 14:45
101 512 23/12 14:47
101 512 23/12 15:00

The actual time spend in the queue is 5 hours and 50 minutes. But Excel calculates this as 35 hours and 22 minutes, because it counts the 512 values no matter what.

How can I make sure that Excel only calculates the values of they are either the last value in the row OR if they are preceded by 511?
