Search First Non-blank Cell To Return A Value In Another Column?

Jun 9, 2014

Want to look in one column and find the first non-blank numerical value, then have it return a value from another column.

Used to nest multiple IF functions together from different cells, but it seems overly complicated and time consuming. Sometimes I have over 30 cells to check.

For example, if Column A contains weekly sales data by week, entered weekly, and Column E has corresponding comparison data from the previous year. I want to enter a formula to check the first row that has sales data entered and have it match up the comparison value in the other column.

Find First Non Blank Cell In Row Then Return Column Header?

Jan 17, 2014

I have this table, which can be seen as a basic custom gantt chart: KLRWo.png

And I would like to fill the A column with start dates, based on the first filled cell of the range on the same row, and the header value of its respective column (row 1). It's easier to show my expected result than write it actually:

Find First Blank Cell In Column & Return Adjacent Date Less Than Or Equal To Today

Apr 4, 2008

how to make the data look like a table with three columns. Other than the date, it is space delimited. I have a tracking spreadsheet where Column A is populated with dates for the year. Column C contains daily values.

I don't always start entering daily values on the first day of the year, e.g., this year the first value in Column C corresponds to March 9. All values in Column C are contiguous - there are no blank cells until the value in Column A is greater than today's date code. I would like to use a formula (rather than VBA) to look down Column C and find the first non-blank entry where the value in Column A is less than or equal to today(). In this case, the formula should return the value for March 9, 2008.

Search For Value In Multiple Column And Row Array And Return Value In First Column?

Dec 16, 2013

I have an array 20 Rows x 42 Columns, which contains a competition draw.

I need to search this array for a unique value and return whatever the time is in the first column on the same row as the value appears, and enter it into column C in the Womens Times sheet.

I also want to return into column D the court number from row 3.

The reason i want this automated is as teams enter / withdraw we may need to drag the games from court to court to fill gaps, so i want the Womens Times sheet to update accordingly.

I have been messing around with index and match, but cannot quite get it to return what i need.

I have attached an example ... on the sheet "Womens Times" in column A there is a list of game numbers ( #1W etc etc) indicating womens game #1 and so on. The main sheet i am using also has a seperate tab for the mens games, hence the designator of W or M on the end of the game number.

Search A Column Of Dates & Return Data From Another Column

Jun 8, 2009

I am trying to get a formula that will search one column range B and pull data from another, D. Dates are down column B and some of those dates are repeated several times. In column D there is only one piece of data (a number) entered for each day. Eg, if 08/06/2009 has been entered 3 times in column A, there will only be data entered in 1 of the cells of column D and blank cells in the other 2.

Column B -- Column D
07/06/09 -- 54000
08/06/09
08/06/09 -- 62000
08/06/09
09/06/09 -- 61000

I couldnt get the LOOKUP function to work properly, as there are duplicate dates in column B and I often got a result of 0 returned.

As Ive only got 1 piece of data added in column D per day and any duplicate days would just have blank cells in D, I can actually get a SUMIF function to work, SUMIF(B3:B60,DATE(2009,6,8),D3:D60). Although it does work, it doesnt feel right using it and I would prefer a formula that would return just the one cell, instead of the sum of a range of cells.

Return Blank If Concatenating With Blank Cell?

Apr 3, 2014

in one column of my spreadsheet and it is returning the correct concatenation for the appropriate lines. However, I wish to have the column's cells return an answer of blank (" ") if B15, B16... etc is blank. In other words, at the moment, a correct answer would read something like '1810sd0000' C10 and B15 used, while an incorrect answer would still display '1810', but I want it to be a blank cell.

Macro To Search Column And Return All Rows Containing Value

Sep 13, 2013

I have a workbook that has 2 sheets. The main sheet is titled Data, and the second sheet is titled Archive.

I need a macro that will let me search all of Column A on Sheet2(Archive) and copy all rows whose Column A contains the value I input into Sheet1 B19, and paste it on Sheet1(Data) starting in cell A21. It can replace any information already on those rows on Sheet1 and I want to copy the information from Sheet2 not cut it.

This part isn't necessary but would be great, on Sheet2 in column D there is a Date it would be great to have another macro that would let me pull the same information as above but only pull a certain number of rows starting with the most recent dates.

Search Partial String, Return Value In Next Column, Vba

Feb 13, 2008

I would like to search cells in column D for the partial string, "PIPE," (A full string may look like this: 'PIPE, 24"ODx0.375"WT API-5LX-65,ERW OR SMLS'). Then, if it's there, return the value "LF" in the corresponding cell in column C. If that string isn't found, then I'd like it to return "EA".

I know this seems pretty easy, but there's a small problem. The word "BENT PIPE," could be in Column D, in which case, I would want it to return "EA" instead of "LF".

Macro To Search For Blanks In A Column And Enter Static Value For Each Blank?

Jun 18, 2013

So this is what I am trying to do, I have a column in my data that is for telephone numbers. When I receive the file some of the fields are blank in that column. I need to add to my current macro a part that evaluates the column for blanks and adds a static telephone number in the blanks (up to the last row of data in the file). I have been able to accomplish this with the following:

Range("N2").Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).Select
Selection.FormulaR1C1 = "1112223333"

However, when the file that I receive has a telephone number in all the fields the code breaks at this point. I have tried On Error Resume Next, but that just replaces all the remaining cells in the column with the static 1112223333..

Vlookup: Search For Value In SECOND Column Of Table Array And Return Value From FIRST

Oct 7, 2008

I'm looking for a formula to search for a value in the SECOND (instead of first) column of a table array and return a value in the same row from FIRST (instead of the same or another) column in the table array. Formula would be searching for the unique production order number in the column B and return production line id from the column A.

A1 production line_id
B1 poduction_order_number

A2 L1
A3 L2
A4 L1

B2 505212
B3 504234
B4 505663

I was trying vlookup(504234;B2:A4;2;0) to make formula go search from right columns to the left but then excel is switching the search table to A2:B4 and gives #N/D!
One remark-there is no possibility to switch these 2 columns to simplify. I have to leave them as they are.

Advanced Filter To Return Rows W/blank Column

I have a worksheet which shows multiple tests and whether they are completed or not[code]Test 1 Person1 Test 2 Person2 Test 3...Person12.

I set up the Advanced Filter criteria with all the appropriately labeled columns and for the Person columns, I put ="" but it is returning all rows which have pH in them whether they are completed or not. What should I be putting in the Person columns of the criteria to only return those rows which have the pH test but it is not completed. I attached an example of the criteria range and the filter window to help clarify (the full spreadsheet is huge)

Search/Copy Non Blank Cell

Dec 1, 2006

It's finals week and I need to figure out this last VBA problem for my excel class. (Yes, we are allowed any outside help.)

The code below is something I tried to develope to do the following:
1. Search "N" column for blank cell
2. If cell not blank then select
3. Copy select cell information 3 cells to the left
4. Continue function to next row

I cannot figure out two things with this code. I need the code to copy/paste the information in the cell versus equalling values. Sometimes there is a small .jpg or .gif file inserted into the cell, so copy/paste is desired. Second is I need the function to not copy formulas if possible. I cannot figure either of things commands out. Hoping message boards can help me as they always have in the past.
