Search And Replace: Loop To Look Up Xxx And Replace It With The Values Consecutively In Row C

Jun 15, 2006

I have values in row A and I have values in row C. I want to create a loop to look up xxx and replace it with the values consecutively in row C. Look at example for a better Idea. I found a way to find and replace, but I not sure how to use it with qoutes. I was thinking maybe I dont even need row A and just supply a list and excel could have the chunk of data in the code itself.

Search And Replace In First Part ONLY Of Cell

Jul 2, 2014

I have a work problem where my spreadsheets have the following structure due to faulty optical character recognition:

Ringholm 8 G R hem.ag Bavik Postl 115 O Amtervik
Rinman K H B dir Johannebergsg 34 Goteborg S
Risberg L kass Mitandersfors Bogen

In some cases the letters in the beginning of the cells have been misread as a number (above S as 8), so I want to search and replace those numbers with the correct letter without changing the correct numbers at the end of the cells to letters too. Is there any way to write a search-and-replace code in VBA that will only implement the search-and-replace in (for example) the first five letter-spaces of the cell?

Search & Replace - Preserve Cell Format

My problem is after the search & replace is done, certain cells that contain numbers look weird with decimal points & plus signs similar to Format Cells - Scientific. How do I prevent these cells from looking 'weird' in my code?

I've attached a workbook with 2 sheets called Before & After. You can see the 'weird' cells in After.

Search Across Columns By Row & Replace Specific Cell Contents

May 2, 2008

I have created a desk planning spreadsheet in excel. Each week a mailmerge sends out an email to everyone in the office asking them to confirm when they will need a desk in the next week.

As the normal employee doesnt get involved in desk planning I want them simply to state whether they will be in the building or not by entering "GH" (our building) in a cell under each day in the email they get sent.

When the reply comes in we select the cells from the email and then paste them into the desk planning spreadsheet.
-----

WHAT I NEED TO DO:
Select some cells (must be in the same row - that we have just pasted in).
Press a button on the Worksheet labelled "Auto Assign Desk", which does this:-
For each cell that contains "GH", replace with the right-most cell to the left of the selection that starts "GH_"... (this is the start of a unique desk reference (GH_1_1, GH_1_2,etc.)
-----

This will assign the employee to the desk they were sat at last, when they are in the office next week.

Excel 2003 :: Find And Replace Missing The Ability To Replace Values?

Feb 5, 2009

This problem has come up fairly frequently lately, and I'm not sure how to fix it, or if this is by design...but in Excel 2003 I can't seem to do a "Find and Replace" based on the value of a cell. I can do a find, based on cell value, but the moment I change to the replace tab, the "values" and "comments" are missing from the "look in" dropdown.

I've only noticed this when I'm trying to replace on a filtered list, so I'm not sure if that is part of the issue.

Perhaps an alternative way of arriving at the same goal. Basically I have a worksheet with a number of filtered columns. They are filtered just right, using custom filtering, and so I do not want to undo the filters. In some columns I have formulas that are returning #VALUE! errors. I'd like to replace all of these cells with NA.

Find And Replace To Not Replace Characters Found As Wildcards?

Jul 2, 2013

I recently became owner of a spreadsheet with some issues, and I am trying to make it useful. Each row has a URL of a blog post, and I want to extract the date from it (which is present in each URL) while getting rid of the rest of the URL. I was able to get rid of everything up to the year (which comes first), but then the URL continues, for example, 2013/05/16/the-rest-of-the-url/ and I would like to just have 2013/05/16 remain.

I am trying to use find and replace with the find box reading 2013/??/??/*/ and replacing it with 2013/??/?? which effectively erases everything else in the url, but leaves ?? instead of the numbers. Is there any way to have it so that it keeps whatever was in the original box?

Replace #VALUE With <nul> On SEARCH

Apr 30, 2009

=IF(SEARCH($C$2,'705334-0707-0408'!C3)>0,ROWS($1:2),"")

Subsequent data selection also results in #VALUE...

=IF(ROWS($1:1)>COUNT($A$5:$A$1000),"",INDEX('705334-0707-0408'!B:B,SMALL($A$5:$A$1000,ROWS($1:1))+1))

In sheet one I have a list of bank transactions. I want to find all transactions matching a specific search string (in $C$2). $C$2 is compared with data in column B of sheet 705334-0707-0408.

How do I get a nul value in column A (=IF(SEARCH($C$2,'705334-0707-0408'!C3)>0,ROWS($1:2),"")). I've tried to compare the result to #VALUE, and tried NOT and a few other combinations, but can't get it to work.

I cant use the contents of a different column; there are only date, details and amount. None of date or amount influence, or are influenced by the details in column B.

VBA - Search And Replace For File

Oct 1, 2012

I have created a file which generates a file name from information entered in certain cells

Code:

FPath = "O:PHC BomsDropbox - Stage & Gate"
FName = Sheets("Control Sheet").Range("B1").Text & " " & Sheets("Control Sheet").Range("B2").Text
ThisWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=FPath & "" & FName

Err1:
Exit Sub

End Sub
Control sheet B1 = SG999
Control sheet B2 = Product Description

EG - SG999 Prod Description.xlsm

Now here's the problem -

Very occasionally some users may edit the Prod Description & then need to re-save

So i need to create some code which looks for an element of the current file name in a Directory (O:PHC BomsDropbox - Stage & Gate) EG "SG999" (Which could be 5 or 6 characters in length (if we go over 1000)

Delete this file, replaces it with the new file with the edited information.

Using Wildcard With Search And Replace

Jan 21, 2009

I have numerous formulas that use a macro with an indirect cell reference, for example:
INDIRECT(macro(A21))

I am moving these formulas to a different workbook and I need them to still refer to items in the old sheet. I accomplish this by using this formula:

INDIRECT(CONCATENATE("OtherSheet.xls!",macro(A21)))
This works. However, I need to do a global search and replace for all of these formulas without deleting my indirect cell reference. I could replace
macro
with
CONCATENATE("OtherSheet.xls!",macro
but that would leave me short a ).
Is there a way to use a wildcard to accomplish this? It does not seem that replace
macro(*)
with
CONCATENATE("OtherSheet.xls!",macro(*))

Suppress Zeros In A Pivot Table (search Out Any Zeros And Replace With A Blank Cell)

Oct 12, 2009

with the data in the attached sheet, I create several different pivot tables that need show the count of the information in the columns M:DU. My issue is that the data is sent to me from a third party and the columns contain zeros that cause the counts to inflate.

What I would like to be able to do is run a macro that will search out any zeros in M:DU and replace them with a blank cell.

Unfortunately the number of rows increases with every monthly reporting cycle so the macro would need to be able to accommodate for that.

Unwanted Character, Can Not Search And Replace

Dec 18, 2007

I have a sheet that I often have to edit and import into SQL database.

I have no control over the format of the sheet given to me and it seems that something has changed causing me the following problem.

When I try to import the Data itís showing ten times as many items than are actually there.

The problem I think is in a text column. Iíve tested this by using an old column from a previous sheet and pasting this into the new sheet and I can import it ok.

What I seem to have is a rectangular box character but Iím not sure what it is.
I can copy and past it into Notepad as it is, but pasted into Word it seems to be a carriage Return.

So whether itís an actual charter or not Iím not sure.

Are there any tools out there so I can hover over characters in Excel to see what it is! So at least I can be sure what Iím trying to Search and Replace?

Search And Replace Text In A Column

Sep 14, 2009

I want to replace all blank cells in column A with the word "BLANK" but my problem is that I need to tell Excel to stop searching for blank cells in column A once and only once column A is equal to the last data row in the column named "Product Number". I tried this macro but, naturally, it replaces all the empty cells in the WHOLE COLUMN.

I will always have a header column in row 1. The data is below that (data will always start at row 2).


Columns("A:A").Select
Selection.Replace What:="", Replacement:="BLANK", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
ReplaceFormat:=False
How can I change this so that the find/replace macro searches all the way down equal to the last data row in the "Product Number" column?

Below are 2 examples. Example 1 is pre macro and example 2 is post macro.

I want to do is search for "&s_kwcid" or anything containing "&s_kwcid" and replace it with blank. So above would then read:

I tried =IF(SUM(COUNTIF(E2,{"&s_kwcid*"}))=1,E2,"") but it didn't work. I tried auto filtering, and using contains &s_kwcid* but it didn't filter out results, but find &s_kwcid did find results for text anywhere in string, so I know the problem is there.

Search & Replace Date In Date And Time Cell

Aug 16, 2008

I have several hundred rows of date/times which I need to modify just the date (for example 08/23/2007 11:00 to 08/15/2008 11:00). Each row may have a different time so it is just the date I'm targeting for change.

If I manually use the replace dialog, replacing 08/23/2007 with 08/15/2008 works just fine. However, if in code I attempt to use the Cells.Replace function, it does not locate any data to change.

I have found that if I search for the string 8/23/2007, the dates are located and changed. Only when I attempt to find the fully formatted date 08/23/2007 does the function fail.

VBA - How To Control Search And Replace To Only Be Valid For Defined Sheet

Apr 5, 2013

I import some text from a web page. The data is separated in rows and columns so it easily slip into cells in a nice row and column manner.

Now, I want to parse some names in one column (column A:A). The names do not reside in any other column. I want to change the content for those cells that is "Alpha Beta" into just "Beta", and I only want the replacing to be carried out on a specific sheet (named "Import").

I've recorded a VBA script and it look like this:

Cells.Replace What:="Alpha Beta", Replacement:="Beta", LookAt:=xlPart,
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, ReplaceFormat:=False

But, when I try different setting for the range I get the same script, I mean, for when I try the search & replace with settings for both the whole workbook and for the current sheet.

How can I control the search & replace with VBA to only be valid for a defined sheet?

Excel 2003 :: Search Condition And Replace Program (VBA Coding)

XY900 1 NA
YY1100 2 FN
ZY1500 3 DP
ZZ1250 2 FN
AA1050 2 NA
AZ 950 1 FN

Sheet2 have table where all the information is saved. So we can say this is database of sheet1. Which store every day information of sheet 1.

Code:
SALARY DATABASE
Name SalaryBonus

What I want to do is that ---it copy all the data which fullfile condition FN and move to the Sheet 2 which is salary database. Two important things to check is that. IF name already exists in the sheet 2 then it replace old info with the new one. Second thing is to sort the whole table(Salary database-sheet 2) according to A-Z (Name column). I use office 2003. I hope I provide all the information.

How To Suppress Macro Search-replace Warning When No Data Found

Dec 29, 2011

I have written a macro to convert data from a report exported from Salesforce.com to a format that is acceptable for upload to our website. One of the necessary conversions is to convert values from a Boolean value to a Y/N value. I wrote a macro with a series of search-replace commands such as this:

Code:
'replace 0s and 1s in "Direct Billing" column with appropriate data
Columns("R:R").Select
Selection.Replace What:="0", Replacement:="N", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
ReplaceFormat:=False
This code generates a warning when no "0" values are found:

"Microsoft Office Excel cannot find any data to replace. Check if your search formatting and criteria are defined correctly. If you are sure that matching data exists in this workbook, it may be on a protected sheet. Excel cannot replace data on a protected worksheet."

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 & Replace Real Dates & Text Dates

Aug 9, 2008

I have a macro that searches and replaces dates (both text and date formats) in all files in a folder. It works if I initiate it from the VBA Editor, but not if I initiate it from the file.

It seems that the worksheet is not activating. Please take a look and let me know what I can try.

Things I have already tried: Window methods, such as minimizing the workbook that contains the macro, activate next, etc. Also putting the macro in Personal.xls and retrieving the values from the other file.

Where it hangs is right after the first workbook in the folder is opened. I tried to get it to select A1 in the active sheet but that cell is not selected in either the macro workbook or the newly opened workbook.

Also, if there is an easy way to exclude my macro file (name contains ZZZZ) from the FileSearch............
