Search Multiple Worksheets Against List Of Non-Exact Search Criteria?
Nov 2, 2009
I have a workbook with many many sheets in it. The first sheet contains a single column with about 10,000 different values. I'd like to use each of these as search criteria against ALL data in the other sheets (of which there are a good 50 or so). If matches are found (they don't have to be exact case), then I'd like two things to happen:
1. The rows containing the matched search criteria in the first sheet are highlighted.
2. In the cells adjacent to the search criteria in the first sheet, hyperlinks to the matched data are created and named after the sheet upon which this matched data appears.
I've attached a sample file to this post with ideal sample 'answers' to queries made of the first 2 terms.
Im am trying to create a search marco button that allows me to search in multiple worksheets in one work book. I came across this CODE the first part of it works. It pops open user input box and ask for the word that i would like to search but the this error message pops up Runtime error1004 Method 'range" of object'_Global'failed and i dont know what to do
Private Sub SearchButton_Click() SearchString = InputBox("Enter Search String", "Search") If SearchString = "" Then Exit Sub For Each c In Range(myRange) If InStr(LCase(CStr(c)), LCase(SearchString)) Then
I am new to VBA and am having difficulties in getting a find function to successfully locate search criteria within cell. When the search criteria matches exactly that of the cell contents then the code works; however should the search criteria only form part of the total cell contents (such as a seach for "the" in a cell containing "the cat sat on the mat") the code doesn't recognise it.
Essentially, I need the code to search a range for the required string and if found within a cell activate that cell and populate a combobox with the full cell contents of the activecell.offset(0,-2).
The relevant section of code attached below:
Dim role_count as range Dim role as string
If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("Role_Count"), Role) 0 Then Range("role_count").Select Selection.Find(What:=Role, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:= _ xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False _ , SearchFormat:=False).Activate
I would like for C1 to search through the data in A1 and see if it contains a match for any of the zip codes listed in column B. If it does than I want it to report the zip that was matched and cell in C2. If there is no match then I want it to return the value, No Match in C2. I need the whole column B to be included in this code.
I have 6 worksheets with data. Column C of every worksheet is filled with unique Tracking Numbers.
I want to create a 7th worksheet with a search function. Users will be able to type in a Tracking Number (on cell A2), and information associated with that Tracking Number (from Columns A, D, E, F and G of worksheets 1-6) will show up beneath cell A2 on cells A4, B4, C4, D4, and E4.
I am trying to set up a worksheet which takes keywords from several cells (user populates these cells) and searches all worksheets for these keywords.
for example, i have C1:G1 set up as possible search string entry cells where the user types their text. I need a function which takes the data in whichever of these cells have been filled in (i.e. it may only be in 1 cell, 2 cells or all 5) and searches each worksheet for all cells containing ALL keywords. (as it finds each one, i will highlight the cell, but that part of the code is obviously very easy )
Currently i have this (note, i havent yet figured out how to but the k1 to k5 variables into the search string yet which is why they are set but not used): At the moment, its not ever looking past worksheet 1 - can anyone see why? and then how to i get it to look for all entered keywords?
I love Excel and love learning new things to do in it to create some amazing number-crunching techniques. I have created a workbook with multiple worksheets [one for every month in the year]. I searched this amazing forum and succesfully implemented the search box macro to find and copy the found data on a separate worksheet.
My question is that the macro I found in the this post Creating a Search Box in Excel only searches for the data in one worksheet. How do I tell it to search for the inputted data in all worksheets?
Here is the first part of the macro. I was trying to fiddle around with the strDataShtNm but to no avail.
Sub myFind() 'Standard module code, like: Module1. 'Find my data and list found rows in report! Dim rngData As Object Dim strDataShtNm$, strReportShtNm$, strMySearch$, strMyCell$ Dim lngLstDatCol&, lngLstDatRow&, lngReportLstRow&, lngMyFoundCnt&
On Error GoTo myEnd '*******************************************************************************
strDataShtNm = "Sheet2" 'This is the name of the sheet that has the data! strReportShtNm = "Sheet1" 'This is the name of the report to sheet!
I have a workbook with 6 worksheets in, 5 worksheets contain data whilst the 6th I will use as a search worksheet. The 5 data worksheets contain columns A to J which have text entries in.
What I would like to click a button on the search worksheet, lets call it worksheet 1, and for an inputbox to allow the user to enter a text search. The macro would then search for this text in columns A to J and all rows (or rows with data in) on the 5 data worksheets, and if found, copy the entire contents of those rows where the text is found and paste them into worksheet 1, the search sheet.
I have done a forum search and found a few examples of this type of search but not across multiple worksheets, also I found this code that does search across multiple sheets but does not copy and paste:
VB: Sub Find_Data() Dim datatoFind Dim sheetCount As Integer Dim counter As Integer
I would like to collect a specific information to the 1st page of the workbook.
It should do the following, when i enter a productcode to a cell in the 1st page(data collection), it instantly searches the other worksheets for a similar productcode, if it finds a match then it should bring 3 different cells on the same row to the 1st page.
I have a spreadsheet with a database search function incorporated. Whilst this works fine, I was wondering if there is a way to combine the current single query searches into one search macro. I have setup a userform called CriteriaSearch that I would like to use to search my database tab. An example search would be:
User requires someone who speaks French (5), is female, has a rank of 3, is available immediately and has notes/keywords/keyphrases of "excellent linguistic and cultural knowledge". The appropriate fields on the userform are populated accordingly. The user selects search and a macro runs to find matching records. To make things slightly easier, the criteria (Language, Gender, Rank etc) all have fixed column references.
I have a workbook that contains 18 sheets of data. These worksheets are named according to their respective client names (AAA Shine, Fern Barn, Oracle, etc. for example). On each of these sheets, is a column (Column B), that has a salesperson's name in it (Fred, Joe, Ted, Anne... there are about 10 names total). On each sheet, there are corresponding values for the revenue from that account for each month of the year. Those values appear in Column L (Jan), M(Feb), N(Mar),... W(Dec).
What I would like to have is formula that will look at each sheet, find all the instances of Fred for January, sum them, and report them in a single cell on a different sheet I have called "Summary". The end result will be a total revenue from all customers, for each sales person, by month, in one summary sheet.
As in attached file, I have 5 tables: Table 1: matrix that contains Weight data in each cell Table 2: matrix that contains Code data in each cell Table 3: Relationship between Code and Level data Table 4: Table with relationship between Weight data, Code data and Level data Table 5: I want to populate each cell in Table 5 matrix from getting values from Table 4 by looking up the right value from Table 5 based on : 1) Weight data from corresponding cell in Table 1 2) Code data from corresponding cell in Table 2 3) Code and Level relationship.
for e.g. to get value for Table 5, Worksheet cell B140 ( intersection of A1-A1), 1) corresponding weight is 1.17 as in Table 1 (Weight data) (Worksheet cell B3) 2) corresponding Code is 6 as in Table 2 (Code data) (Worksheet cell B35) 3) Code 6 corresponds to Level 2 (as seen in Table 3)(Worksheet cell A74)
so, looking up the 3 values from Table 4 i.e. Level 2, Code 6, Weight 1.17, one gets cell AR98 with corresponding value. therefore, final value in Table 5, Worksheet cell B140 (intersection of A1-A1) will be equal to $4.00
I have been trying to solve this using Vlookup, Hlookup, Index/Match but am getting confused. Also, not too sure if this can be done in 1 step. New to these excel and these functions
I have a userform where I key in something into a textbox, click search and then the results will be returned into the textbox or into a listview if there are more than one instances.
Now, when I type in "Box1-A( )", the only result that will be returned is "Box1-A( )" if it is present in my spreadsheet. Is there a way I can make the userform return results as long as the keywords are there? In this case, the keywords would be "Box1-A" (without the ( ) at the back).
Here is the code I'm using
Code: Private Sub cmbFind_Click() Dim LR As Long Dim strFind As String 'what to find
Was working on this code on another excel forum but I forgot my password and I can't retrieve it at the moment.
I am looking to search in a table (say 4 columns) corresponding to multiple criterion (one for every column except fourth) and returning the values which are numerous (from column 4). I have tried the INDEX function but it only gives me one of the many cells. I am working on a table with +20000 cells per column
I need a formula that will tell me what Tracking # in the spreadsheet has multiple dispositions and what those disposition are. I need the formula to use column and cell coordinates and not using word searches.
I want to display multiple results based on 2 search parameters, where by when I enter flight number and Dep. Airport it matches the trip numbers and dispalys all the rows matching all flight number and Dep. airport based on the unique trip number.
Notice: - one trip number could consist of multi flight sectors.
1) Explanation of the data :
MMM1805 = flight Number 935 = dep. time $AS41 = registration code
I have thought about recording a vlookup but this might be messy and prone to errors. Is there anyway to search through multiple sheets for a value (code) in Col A sheet 1. And return X in sheet 1 in the next column.
I am having such a difficult time creating a macro that will reduce the 5+hours I have to spend each week manually copying & pasting all of this data. I making an IMMENSE difference in this worker bee's life!
I have a workbook with two sheets (Sheet1 & Sheet2). Sheet1 has license #'s in column A and the state that the license belongs to in column B like this:
COLUMN ACOLUMN B11111Alaska11112Alabama11113Arkansas11114Arkansas Sheet2 has three columns. Column A has the license #'s, column B has the state that the license belongs to and Columns C shows a line-of-authority tied to that license #.
I'm trying to write a macro that will compare the license # and state in Sheet1 to the license # and state in Sheet2. If it matches, append the contents of Column C to the corresponding row in Sheet1.
Here's the thing...Sheet2 contains the entries for all licenses in the company (so this table is HUGE). And there are multiple entries for each state license # (notice how there's two entries above for AK license # 11111 - one for the Property line and one for the Casualty line.
After my macro is run, I want Sheet1 to show all the lines-of-authority on a single line. So if I ran my macro on the above example, after it's run I would have this in Sheet1:
COLUMN ACOLUMN BCOLUMN C11111AlaskaProperty Casualty11112AlabamaProperty Casualty11113 ArkansasLife Health11114ArkansasLife Health
It works, unless there is a column before the "Categories" column that has the word "Categories" somewhere in its text. So basically if there is a column that has "Unit Categories" it finds that column when I really want it to find a column that has exactly "Categories" as the text and nothing else (but I don't want it to be case sensitive).
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 need to search for an exact match within a cell & i am unsure of how to go abt it. Eg ) Cell A1 contains "Emea West,Emea East,Emea". I want to search for the term "Emea" in the contents of the Cell A1. I cant use Find() as using "=FIND("Emea",A6)" returns 1 ... But i want an exact match i.e "Emea" only which in this case should be 21. The Exact() works well if Cell A1 had a single value ...I guess I would need to use some array function here which will parse through contents of the cell , but am not sure on how to go about
I have 2 columns ,A and B, in a table and text strings in C. Each table row A1 and B1 needs to be compared and matched with the text string C:C. Only if both, A1 and B1, are found in the same string, say C5, it has to return A1&B1. If not, return "Not Found".
1. A and B are text and number 2. C is text with different numbers saved as text and words all mixed up 3. There is no defined format for the text, it is different in each string A B C

With all these different formats and inconsistency, is it even possible?
I am looking to write a search function that searches through a whole document. The only examples I can find are of a could different search functions but they all are searching an specified individual column and even then I didn't really understand them. My worksheet has 6 different columns which are all different labels for a certain tool. I want the user to be able to input any of those 6 labels and have all the information in that row be returned.
