Search Engine Of Non-exact Word Using Userform

Jul 4, 2012

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.

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."

[Code] ......

Making Userform Search Less Exact?

May 21, 2012

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

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.

Userform To Search For Exact And Partial Values From Combobox In Database Worksheet

Jan 15, 2014

Below is my current code. The strFind1 searches for a name within the database and then I need strFind2 to do a exact for a Subproject search and a partial search for everything containing the Subproject selected and other Subprojects. Currently, when the database entry in the worksheet includes Subproject 1 the search function works but when I have an entry that contains Subproject 1/Subproject 4 it does not find the entry. How can I expand the strFind2 to equal what is selected in the Combobox2 and find entries that have what is selected plus more text. I have set the line where I think everything is going wrong to a bold format.

Search Engine

Feb 4, 2008

In excel, I have created a Search Engine. It searches through a bunch of data and based on 2 inputs, it spits out a result.

In other words, I have the speed in MPH of a bunch of people based on how fast they were going per second. If you input a time and speed into the search engine, it will tell you the person that was closest to this speed at the given time. So the result is the persons name and the inputs are the time and the reported MPH.

Now, suppose my search engine is in sheet one. In sheet 2, I will have bunch of reported data….a list of times and MPH of how fast I think someone was going. I want to know who I thought I was looking at. Therefore, I need all my data from sheet 2 to go into my search engine in sheet 1. I will then get a reported name that I would like to appear next to my data in sheet 2.

This would work manually inputting them one by one but I guess my question is is there a way I can get all this data to enter the search engine automoatically and still be able to spit out a result??

So basically, I want to take Time1 and MPH1 and get result 1, then take Time2 and MPH2 and get result 2…and so on and so forth, making this quick and easy.

So in my reported data worksheet, A1,A2,A3.....have times and B1,B2,B3 have there a way to run these through my search as is so that I can have a name appear in C1,C2,C3....?

Now that is not the EXACT thing I created but the concept is very similar.

Creating Search Engine In Excel

Apr 14, 2014

Adding a search engine like feature to a spreadsheet we have which has multifarious columns of data on it, here is a screenshot of what it looks like:


We have multiple sheets for each tutor like that picture which lists all information of their learners for reference, now I want to do a search feature on the main home page or perhaps on a dedicated "Search" page which allows us to filter out specific information out of those columns, mainly the ability to search by "Tutor" (aka sheet name), "Postcode", "Venue", "End Date", "Learner Name" and "EBS" number...

Create A GUI For Search Engine To Show Titles

Mar 3, 2010

I have a worksheet with simple titles of books in a single colum, but want to create a user interface that is like a search engine to show titles.

Just a simple search window and search button. If I have a book named Mother Goose, and the user types in Mother, the search will show every title with that word in it. I have tried to do the advanced lookup I found here but I think I am not excel oriented enough to understand how to use it nor do I think it would do what I am looking for.

This is just a small file but if i know how to build it, it would concern a much bigger file and maybe even some graphs (if that is possible)

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.

Pick Word From Excel Search In MS Word And Replace All

Jan 4, 2012

I am trying to automate the below process:

1. I have a excel file with Japanese words in column A and their English equivalents in column B.

2. I am trying to create a Macro and assign it to a button. On pressing the button Macro should be able to:

3. open a form where I can enter location of a word file.

4. Macro should open the word file specified in (3).

5. Macro will pick up first Japanese word from excel file (Sheet 1 - A1)

6. Search for that word in Word file

7. Replace the Japanese words in Word file with their English equivalent from excel (B1)

8. Then it should search for second word (A2) and replace with its equivalent (B2) and so on till it reaches last filled cell in excel file column A.

After a lot of search I could find a code from net (Below), made a few changes, but it is not working.

Search For Exact Match Column Header?

Mar 13, 2014

This is the script I have now:

[Code] ......

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).

How do I force an exact match using this script?

Fornula To Search For An Exact Match Within A Cell

Jul 17, 2006

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

Search For Substring Within String Of Text Which Is Exact Match?

Jan 6, 2014

Let us say I have the following text in Cell A1. "There is a fault in the cal cycle.Need to update the records." And in cell A2 I have the following text. "Called for backup assistance. There is an issue with numbers." I cells B1 & B2 I need a particular formula which searches for the substring "cal" exactly and returns true if present. In cell A1, we have "cal" in the text. So it should return true for me in cell B1.

However in cell B2 I need false to be returned even though I have "Called" inside the text. I need true to be shown only for those cells where we have the exact text "cal" and no text characters in front or back of it.

VBA: Search Function: Which Shows An Input Box Where You Can Enter A Word To Search For

Sep 9, 2003

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"

Find Function Where Search Criteria Isn't Exact Match For Cell Contents

Dec 19, 2011

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
Selection.Find(What:=Role, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:= _
xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False _
, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

Me.Controls(ComboBoxName) = ActiveCell.Offset(0, -2).Value

Giving Userform Exact Functionality Of Msgbox

Feb 21, 2013

I am currently using a bunch of msgboxes to tell the user if a specific error has occurred. I want to get rid of the ugly gray box and customize my own. I am having problems setting up the code as I would like it to function like msgbox does where I can supply a header and message string and then it displays in the userform. I tried coding it kind of how I would pass variables to a function and it doesn't seem to work.


Private Sub userform_initialize(msg As String, hdr As String)
MessageBox.Caption = msg
myMessageBox.Caption = hdr
End Sub


Call myMessageBox("Hi", "hi")

Prevent Duplicate Data Entry Via Userform Based On Exact Match In 2 Columns

Jul 16, 2012

I have a userform with several textboxes and 2 comboboxes. The data that I need protected from duplication is based in the comboboxes. If I ignore the other fields and presume the following it may be easier to understand:

The comboboxes are populated by the data stored in sheet1 and when the userform is complete, the OK button populates all the data into sheet2

Combobox1 contains names eg, John, Julie, Bob etc
Combobox2 contains colours eg, Red, Blue, Green etc

I want the userform to allow the data to be entered into sheet2 only if it is not an exact duplicate of the choices in BOTH of the comboboxes

For Example
John Red
Julie Red
Bob Blue
John Blue

These are all ok, however, to try and enter John Red again would bring up a message box indicating a duplicate entry and prevent the data from being entered.
