Search For Text That Does Not Contain A Certain Word
Feb 13, 2007
I'm looking for a macro to search for records that does not contain the word hello world anywhere(any column & any row) on a spread sheet. Then I want to delete that record. I prefer not to use the autofilter function, if possible.
I am looking to automate a process where information is sent to someone in a text format and they in turn transfer that data to an excel file. It basically looks like this (but includes a lot more info):
Service Request #: 123456 Instrument Type: New Instrument Lot/Serial #: 123456 SR Type: Product Complaint Service Coverage: Maintenance Agreement
The info on the left (text preceding the colon) is always the same but the values following the colon can change. The excel file has all of the text before the colon and they just enter the information into the cells. I am looking to make it so that an Excel macro (or maybe a word/outlook macro) automatically scans the text document and sends this info to the exact same cells in excel every time.
The text file is actually a message from an Oracle database and I am not going to be able to make any changes to the way the data comes in.
Attached is the mock excel spreadsheet. I want to read "sam" from the lookup column's long text "sam is good" and then write "4" in the next column. Similarly read "white" from the long text "white is tired" and write "1". And so on,,,,, For more criteria, see box highlighted in yellow,,,,I used VLOOKUP but what am able to make it work only when there is one word "sam" in the lookup column. It returns #NA when the text is "sam is good". It should write nothing if none of the criteria is met and should keep doing until the last cell in the lookup column.
I have hundreds of records of customer info and I am trying to categorize the job titles so that I can conduct some analysis with a pivot table. My problem is that there is about 20 different ways and variations of "manager" so Instead of autofiltering for "mrg." "Manager" "marketing manager" ect. and then replacing the text manually and using the enter and fill process (to create some standardization to compare "manager" to "director" to "c-level" to "consultant", etc.) and repeating this process over and over again...
I would like to create a VBA that would search the column "job title" for multiple text strings at once and if the text string was true in the cell then the cell would be replaced by a new text string "Manager". I was thinking a series of if functions within one vba but I am not sure if this is possible.
I'm from Bavaria, Germany. Right now, I am doing an internship for my studies. my problem: I need a search procedure which shows an Input Box where you can enter a word to search for. It should work like the original Excel search (Ctrl-F), but with a simpler design, like with my own Text "Enter your Query" and a Button "Submit Query" / "Quit search". Is there the possibility to Highlight the Search Target? The problem hereby is that this highlighting should not be permanent. That means the user sees the target for which he searched for, the cell highlighted in a different color, etc. But as soon as the user clicks onto another cell, etc., the highlighting vanishes. If there is no fitting match, there should be a MessageBox like "Sorry the Target xyz cannot be found"
I am having trouble getting my IF statement to test if the cell contains the text "sale" return "X" if not "Y". I need it to search through the text string in that cell and find a certain word, and if it finds that word, retrn a value. I am really having difficulty with is what symbol or function do I use for the logical test? (i.e. =, <>, MATCH, INDEX?)
I have a set of data which contains " Account Heads" in Column "A" and "Data" in Column "B", "Data" contains "Account Heads" with some other text as well, i want to have the Account Head in Column "C" based on the "Account Heads" from "Data"
Is it possible to use the Sumproduct formula to search for a particular word and grab the amount in the next column, but 1 row down? For example, I would search for region 1, but want to grab the figure in the total loans column next to Consumer.
Region Loan Type Total Loans --------- ------------ -------------- Region 1 Commercial 150000 Consumer 75000 Region 2 Commercial 90000 Consumer 145000
I have a small problem which i cannot seem to figure out. I want to create a code to search for a word in a certain column ie. "L". The row of the columns change until they hit the end of the list. What I want this macro to do is find the word and then if the word matches to leave the cell alone otherwise I want it to hide the cell. Basically something like this:
If Cells(3,12) = "JF" then do nothing else hide cell.
I am trying to figure out a formula which will search the contents of 6 cells (o2, p2, q2,r2,s2,t2) for the word "sugar". If it is found in either of these cells, I would like the formula to result in "true" or "yes", if not, "false" or"no" would be the result.
Cells (o2, p2, q2,r2,s2,t2) contain text which can include the word "sugar" but will never contain only the word sugar.
I am trying to create the ability to search for a word in specific columns. In my case below I want to search D5:E500 but it's not working. It searches the whole ppage.
Private Sub searchfind_Click() Dim searches As String searches = searchfirstname & searchlastname If WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("D5:E500"), searches) = 0 Then Exit Sub End If Cells.Find(What:=searches, After:=ActiveCell, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlDown, _ MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate End Sub
This is wrekcing my head as I'm sure it can be done with an Array formula and I cant seem to get it sorted -
Say I have 5 Rows of text starting in A2 "A quick word" "A quick WORD" "A" "word" "WORD"
I need an excel formula to say "False", "False", "False", "False", "TRUE".
All conditions to be met for TRUE are - Word must in uppercase, Uppercase Word must be longer than 1 character, Sentence (i.e. cell) can not contain a space. This is the path I've gone down, but almost certainly incorrect -
I've got a long list of company names, i'm trying to create a formula to see if they match but the problem is the names won't match exactly (e.g it would be Joe Bloggs Limited & Joe blogg's ltd). I've thought about it and think the best way to see if they match would be to take the first word from the first cell (in this case Joe) and then search for it in the next cell and return TRUE if it exists anywhere in the cell and FALSE if not.
I have a userform for the user to use a search engine on what he needs. The following code I have written it, but it is only good if he writes exact wording of the document name. How can I twist the code to make the search look for approximate words,
The search engine will try to look in for all the titles on "Result" worksheet and copy/past it to a new sheet called "search". so when the user types in the userform "specification" for instance, it will look all titles (Specifications, specification, spec, brown color spec) that has this word in the "Result" sheet and then it will copy/paste it in the Search Sheet.
Code: Private Sub ok_1_Click() Dim sht As Worksheet Set sht = Worksheets("Result") 'if no name selected If Trim(Me.Document_box.Value) = "" Then MsgBox "Please write a document name."
I have a key-word, and I need to search a 90,000 words in a range where i should find several words that have 2, 3 or 4 letters of the first letter of the key-word, then find several words that have 2, 3 or 4 letters of the second letter of the key-word,
So I have a cell with multiple words in A1. I want to check for the word "red" in A1 and if red exists return a value of "red" in B2, IF "red" is not found then search for "blue", if "blue" exists return a value of "blue" in B2, if "blue" is not found is not found then search for "green", if "green" exists then return "green" in B2, if none exist then return value of "none"
I would Need a macro which would Search a Keyword in the excel sheet and copies and pates the data in Cell "A2". for Example "Market" and then after the search it copies 12 rows upwards and 10 columns from the Cell that the word "Market" is placed. And then it copies 12 rows downwards and 10 columns from the Cell that the word "Market" is placed.
I have tried recording the same but it does not work if the Word "Market" is placed in different cell value.
1. Search an excel sheet "column" for a particular type of text and insert values based on that text (if found) in another column.
e.g I have column A1 to A10 with different types of text. I would like to search for the keyword "Risk is high" OR "Risk=High" for each cell in the column and insert a "1" if found beside it's corresponding "B" column. If not found, I would like to insert a "0".
So, if the text "Risk is high" OR "Risk=High" was only found in A6, I would like B6 to be "1". Rest of the values in the B column would be "0's", since the text was not found in any of the other cells.
Search the activecell for a text string (a), and then either paste in text string (b) at the end of the cell if (a) is found, or text string (c) if (a) is not found.
For example, if the activecell has "AA/" in it, I want the cell to become "AA/01" (pasting in "01" at the end), and if the cell has just "AA" in it, I want it to still become "AA/01" (pasting "/01" at the end). The macro will be linked to a commandbutton.
