Search Word For Text And Send Values Next To Text To Excel File

Apr 30, 2009

I am using Windows XP and Office 2003.

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.

Text File Search In Excel VBA

Dec 8, 2003

The mini project I've been working on does pretty much what I want it to do. It takes a list of script names and by providig it with the scripts folder/server and database the scripts are run and the log files are dumped in a newly created folder named logs.

Now that I have established how to check for the existence of a folder and creating new folders in Excel VBA, the next step is to check for the existence of a particular text file and if it exists, search the contents of that file for a specific word or sentence.

I need to know which objects and methods provide such capability [if any]

Excel Text Search Through Different Types Of Text And Action Based On Text

Oct 14, 2008

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.

VBA To Send Text File To USB Dot Matrix Printer

May 22, 2014

How do I send a text file to a usb dot matrix printer as opposed to a parallel port.

I have an Excel spreadsheet that prints labels on a dot matrix printer. Until now the printer used a parallel port. My Excel workbook generates a text file "C:PRINTLABEL.TXT". I then execute a shell command to run a batch file called

"C:PRINTLABEL.BAT". The BAT file contains the line
copy C:PRINTLABEL.txt lpt3
The shell command contains the lines (not all lines are shown)
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler ' Enable error-handling routine.
Exit Sub ' Exit to avoid handler.

Now I have to deal with a newer dot-matrix printer (EpsonLX300+II) that is able to use a USB port.

How do I print the plain txt file to the printer using the USB port (LPT1/2/3 are all parallell ports, so the batch file does not work as it stands.

VLOOKUP - Search Only One Word From Long Text, Write

Feb 22, 2010

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.

Excel 2010 :: Building Text File Based On Values Of Cell?

Feb 26, 2014

I'm trying to use Excel to build a text file based on values from certain cells in Excel 2010. This is based partially off of static text that never changes and variables that will need to change. For example, I want Excel to output a text file that has the following text: The red fox jumped over the $X twice. I would want $X to be replaced by the value of A1 of the active worksheet. I will also have several lines like that, so it won't just be a single line, but anywhere from 20 - 120.

VBA - Search For Multiple Text Strings In Data Field And If Matched Return One Word

May 7, 2014

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.

Looping, Open Text File, Copy Text, Close Text File

Sep 18, 2009

I have an existing spreadsheet with a column of strings (actually VIN numbers). These numbers correllate to a bunch of text files, that can exist in one of three folders (UsernameDesktop1, 2, or 3) on my desktop. What I need the macro to do is:

1) get the filename from A2 (A1 is a heading row)
2) Find the appropriate text file in one of the three folders
3) Put the folder name into I2
4) Scan the text file for some strings, and copy some data that follows those strings into J2:O2 (I can handle programming this)
5) Close the text file
6) repeat above for the remainder of filenames (about 1800 files)

Search Cell Value In A Column From Text File

Jun 18, 2008

I tried to search the forum first and but i cant find ways to combine everything i wanted to achieve. That's why i'm posting this to consolidate all those...Sample files are attached for better understanding. I have an excel file (sample.xls) which has cell values in column A. These values will then be used to find a match in each of the text files (in this example, sample 1.txt & sample 2.txt) present in the same folder with my excel workbook. I need a macro to perform the scenarios below.

1. Say, the excel file contains a list of cell values in column A.
2. Temporarily open the first text file (sample 1.txt) as an excel workbook.
3. Search each cell value in column A for a match in the first text file.
a. If that certain cell finds a match, no matter how many it may find, that cell will be formatted with "BOLD" format.
b. If not, that cell will be formatted with GRAY text color.
4. After all the cells have been used, the first text file will be closed and the next text file (sample 2.txt) will be opened temporarily.
5. Repeat steps 3 & 4, except that, when the cell value has "BOLD" format already, it will be skipped and proceed to the next cell. That is, the grayed ones can be turned back to black color and will be formatted to "BOLD" format if a match has been found in the 2nd text file.
6. If there are other text files present within the folder, do steps 2 to 5, until all the text files are searched.

Exporting Excel Data To Word As Unformatted Text

Jun 3, 2006

I'll try to simplify what I'm trying to do without getting into too much details that might be considered irrelevant to my question.

1. A set of VBA procedures are run successfully, and the results are compiled on a single w/s "mySheet" in a single w/b "myBook".

2. I intend to repeat 1. above 1,000s of times (same w/b, same w/s).

3. Consider a single run. The results of interest on "mySheet" are confined to a range, say, A20:K40, named "myInpRange", with a 7-digit run identifier ID automatically generated and stored in cell F5, say, F5 = 1234567

4. I've successfuly performed the following tasks manually:
...a) copy range A20:K40 of "mySheet"
...b) Open a new MS Word document
...c) Paste Special as Unformatted Text
...d) Save the Word file for this run As: LL_1234567.inp (="LL_" & F5 & ".inp")
...e) Close the Word file.
...f) Repeat a) to e) above for the next run.

Q: How to code a VBA Excel macro to handle Excel & Word, run from a button on the w/s "mySheet", and to perform the tasks a) to e) above ??

In case you might wonder why I do have to go through this trouble. Well, my next set of programs are DOS-Applications, which only allow their redirected input data files to be as described above.

Copy Text In Excel Cells And Paste As Bullets Into New Word Doc

Nov 3, 2013

I have a simple excel sheet with columns A (name1) B (name2) C (name3) D (name4) E (name5) F (text). A given name can only appear once in any given row.

I am looking for a vba code (Excel 2003) that would loop through cells in A1:E?? (number of rows varies, loop needs to find last non-empty row in column A) and look for a particular name (e.g. "Stefan Thomas"):
1) create new unnamed word doc
2) Put "New Annex" as a header (top right) in the new word doc
3) Insert text "List for Stefan Thomas" centered and underlined as the first line of the new word doc. The document will have two sections:
4) Insert text "Items in Column A" bolded and aligned to the left
5) Insert text "Items in Column B to E" bolded and aligned to the left below the section in 4
6) if "Stefan Thomas" is in column A, copy text in column F and paste in word doc as first bullet (below title "Items in Column A")
7) repeat step 6 for all other instances of "Stefan Thomas" in column A (append text as next bullet in section "Items in Column A")
8) If "Stefan Thomas" is in column B or C or D or E (can only appear once per row), copy text in column F and paste in word doc as first bullet (below title "Items in Column B to E")
9) repeat step 8 for all other instances of "Stefan Thomas" in column B or C or D or E (append text as next bullet in section "Items in Column B to E")

if you could indicate in the code how I can choose the type of bullet as well as space between bullets and font type

Populate Excel Cells With Specific Text From Word Document

Jul 22, 2014

Let me start by stating that I am a novice at writing macro script. I am trying to write a script that will open and search a Word doc, find specific text in that document, and populate certain excel cells with that information.

Ex. of Word doc: Install gasket [12], using bolt [5] and nut [8]. Uninstall gasket [12] and scrap gasket and fasteners.

I would like the script to search for and populate any number between the [ ] into a specific excel cell, also I would like it to identify and populate an excell cell with the associated step, e.g.: "", which will be at the begining of that step (step could be several sentences long). Also, I would like the script to look for and identify/populate an excel cell with any number of words such as: "install", "uninstall", "break", "scrap", or "remove" also associated with that step.

Text File Import With Text To Columns Splitting Same Text Differently

Nov 21, 2007

I have a macro which imports data from a mainframe dump text file and performs 'Text to Columns' on the imported data so that formula in the spreadsheet can act on the data. The code works perfectly well when I use it, but if a different user logs on and performs exactly the same mainframe dump and import macro the Text to Columns action splits the raw data in a different way and the result is that the split renders the formulae useless.

I've experimented a little and for some reason it appears that the 'Field Info' parameters which are produced when the Text to Columns function is recorded in a macro differ between users even though the raw data is exactly the same.

FieldInfo:= _
Array(Array(0, 1), Array(18, 1), Array(35, 1), Array(56, 1), Array(70, 1), Array(88, 1), _
Array(102, 1))

Macro To Search Text &amp; Return Values

Jan 9, 2009

I have a spreadsheet containing several names. I want a formula or macro that will search a string of text within the cell. If the text exists within the cell, I need a code to populate. For example,

In cell E2, search for a phrase anywhere in the cell that contains "COM". In cell H2 look for the exact phrase "ASB". When "COM" is found in E2 and "ASB" is found in H2, in cell U2 return the value "COM ASBTVL".

In my case, E2 may not contain "COM", it may contain "DEN" instead. In that case, if E2 contains "COM", and if "H2" contains "SVC", then in U2 populate "COM APPSVC"

I'm guessing in my code I will need to list a set of criteria that will search row by row and return certain values when finding the text I specify.

Would a macro be best for this? Does anyone know how I would put that together?

Search Text List And Calculating Values

Dec 23, 2008

The idea is to have our technicians complete a timesheet showing how their time is being allocated between various tasks. I have created the spreadsheet and each row has a drop-down list with 6 options (Project Management, Audit, Office, etc) then a start and finish time which is calculated. I want to automate it so each each task option (Project Management, Audit, etc.) is calculated. There will be multiple entries for each task option over a weekly period. I tried VLOOKUP, but it does not work well with the text entries. I have attached a copy of the spreadsheet to better illustrate what I am trying to explain.

Search Multiple Worksheets For Text String Then Sum Corresponding Values?

Sep 24, 2010

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.

Import Text File Into File Where Rows Exceed Excel Row Limit

Jun 3, 2009

I have a workbook with many spreadsheet named Sheet1, Sheet2 and so on. Each sheet is filled completely upto 65536 rows. This data is being picked up from a CSV file. In this file there are sites with each site there is a assciated set of data. What happens is the data that extracts data does not differntiate between sites and when it reaches to the end of worksheet it splits the data into next sheet. So I am trying to create a macro to check each spreadsheet starting with the last sheet in the work book for example last sheet in the workbook is seven it should go to sheet6 and if there is a blank row after row 64000 it should cut all the rows and move them to sheet7. Then it should goto sheet5 and do the same and keep on doing it until it reaches sheet1.

Insert Text To One File - Remove Text From Equivalent Column In Another File?

Aug 13, 2013

Got a slight problem; I am making a "worker-plan", where you should be able to write a name on one file and have it updated (removed) from the equivalent columns on another file automatically. Here's an example with two separate projects:

Project 1 before and after changes:
Attachment 257366
Attachment 257367

Project 2 before and after changes:
Attachment 257368
Attachment 257369

You can see here how I intended it to work. When one worker is moved from Project 1 to Project 2, that worker should also be removed from those weeks in Project 1. The previous worker from Project 2 should also be removed from those weeks (in Project 2).

Are there any formulas that can make this work automatically? All week numbers will belong to the same columns in all files.

Edit: There are 30 files that should be syncronized, not just two.. I could also gather all files into one file with sheets, instead of having seperate files.
