Search For Multiple Words Within Cell?

Feb 6, 2012

I'm trying to find if the description in Column L has any of the following words: (irrigation, sprinkler, water). The cell does not need to have all of the words, but just 1 to make the IF formula return a yes. view the example below and let me know where I am making the mistake. I don't want the case to be sensitive.

This is what I have so far, but it is only finding the first word.

This example returns nothing:

Text in Column L
Main irrigation line broken Need to repair

Formula in Column S
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH({"sprinkler","irrigation","water"},L203)),"Yes","No")

This example returns Yes:

Text in Column L
Irrigation broken sprinklers and broken lateral li

Formula in Column S
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH({"sprinkler","irrigation","water"},L210)),"Yes","No")

Modifying A Sumproduct Formula To Search For Words In A Cell

Jul 7, 2009

My current formula is this: =SUMPRODUCT((Str311A=1)*(Str311C=15)*(Str311G<>" DM "),Str311L). All the items starting with Str311 are formula's associate with a name. What I'm trying to do is add one more factor into the formula. I need it to look in column I for any cell that contains the words L/S. I tried modifying the formula to this but it does not work:

SUMPRODUCT((Str311A=1)*(Str311C=15)*(Str311I="*L/S*")*(Str311G<>" DM "),Str311L)

The formula contained inside the names are:

Str311=OFFSET(Outlet!$A$1,MATCH("STORE # 163311",Outlet!$A:$A,0)-1,0,MATCH("TOTAL FOR STORE : 163311 SAN MARCOS",Outlet!$A:$A,0)-MATCH("STORE # 163311",Outlet!$A:$A,0)+1,1)

Str311A=OFFSET(Str311,0,0)

Str311C=OFFSET(Str311,0,2)

Str311I=OFFSET(Str311,0,8)

Str311G=OFFSET(Str311,0,6)

What I need is a way to modify my original formula to now also only match cells that contain the phrase L/S. The phrase can be located at the beggining, middle, or end of the cell characters.

Search For An Array Of Words, Change A Cell Based On What It Finds

Nov 7, 2008

Search Column A for a name (using an array if possible). If it finds this name, add a string of text to the AA cell on the same row that it found the name on.

For example,

If in A1 it finds the specified name. It then adds a string of text to AA1.

Sumproduct? Sumif? (search A Range Any Cell Containing Words Or Phrase "20%" )

Jun 4, 2009

I am very comfortable with SUMIF, but need to search a range any any cell containing words or phrase "20%" then need to sum those corresponding cells only.

I.e., something like: SUMIF(A1:A10,..."20%",C1:C10) .... only sum all C cells where an A cell contains any combination of words with "20%" in them.

Finding Single Name In Cell In Cell With Multiple Names (words)

May 8, 2014

Looking for a formula (not macro) that can do the following:

I have a spreadsheet and in one column, it has last names of clients. In the next column, it has full names of clients that are the same account, but different system with different descriptions for the name. I need to lookup the column that just has last name and see if that last name exist anywhere in the "Full name" column. If it does, then I need column C to say "Yes" or something along those lines.

The "full name" column isn't always in the same format and sometimes doesn't even contain the "last name." Sometimes the last name will be first and sometimes there's a comma and sometimes there isn't a comma. The spreadsheet attached shows a good short example of what I'm working with...

Search For Words In Row In Other Row With Titles?

Jul 20, 2012

I need a functionality in Excel, but I can't get it done. I want to search multiple titles on multiple words.

1. I have a list with titles (tab A)
2. I have a list with words (tab B)

Now I want to scan all titles on words that appear on tab B and return the value of the word.

Example:

Title (tab A - column A)
Return (tab A - column B)
Words (tab B)
BrandX Shampoo Big
Shampoo
Eau de Toilette
BrandX Nailcutter
Nailcutter
Nailcutter
BrandX Eau de Toilette
Eau de Toilette
Shampoo

So for row 1 the word "shampoo" is reconised in the title and returns this value. Same for the other rows. I need the functionality like the formula below, but then with more words (from a list). I don't want to work with "OR" because the list with word is about 200+ and will be more in future.

=IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("shampoo",A1)),"x","shampoo")

Search More Than 6 Words And Write By Using Macros

Feb 17, 2010

I want to search say in column A for specific words say ďDonĒ and then write in another column (say column 2) as ďoneĒ. Then it should keep searching for specific word until the last cell in that column and keep writing specific word in another column. It should do nothing if that specific word is not found.

I was able to use IF(ISERROR) but there is limitation of max 6 searches. Also i was able to achieve it by so many iteration of IF(ISERROR) and using autofilter.

My goal is to search around 30 to 40 criteria in one shot or by writing macros.
I guess i have presented my problem properly.

Search Multiple Criteria If Match Append Multiple Cells To One Cell?

Apr 28, 2012

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 #.

COLUMN ACOLUMN BCOLUMN
C11111AlaskaProperty11111AlaskaCasualty11112AlaskaLife11112AlaskaHealth11112
AlabamaProperty11112AlabamaCasualty11113ArkansasLife11113ArkansasHealth11114
ArkansasLife11114ArkansasHealth12345ArizonaProperty

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

Search For Multiple Text Strings In A Cell - Return One Of Multiple Corresponding But Different String

Mar 11, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with 1,000 rows of data.

Each Cell in Column A has a different long text string.

I need to see which (if any) of 10 specific small text strings exist within each long text string. Depending on which small text string is found I want to return a 3 digit code. If no small text string is found I want to return "Not Found"

E.g.:
- Cell A2 contains "randomtext,randomtext,APPLE,randomntext"
- I want to see if Cell A2 contains any of the words APPLE, ORANGE, CARROT.
- I want to return "APP", "ORG", "CAR" or "Not Found"

Q: What is the most elegant way to accomplish this within a single formula that I could paste into each cell in Column B?

Modifying VBA Function To Search Only Complete Words?

Mar 19, 2014

I've been working on a method to search a single column of 1000+ cells containing a paragraph with a 250+ word keyword list (also in a single column). I'm needing only complete words to be searched/ displayed regardless of spacing & punctuation. I've tried multiple methods the past few days and the one that worked (Macro with 4 complex formulas) was unusable when scaled out to all 1,000 rows due to the extremely long calculating time. I don't know VBA yet but was able to modify and create a user defined function that does everything I need except it displays string results that are not whole words (Ex. search for air, word in cell is fair, displays a result for air).

PHP Code: 

Function RangeSearch2(text As String, wordlist As Range, seperator As String, Optional caseSensitive As Boolean = False)    
Dim strMatches As String    Dim res As Variant    Dim arrWords() As String    Dim skip As Boolean    skip = False    
On Error Resume Next    Err.Clear    For Each word In wordlist            If caseSensitive = False Then

Add Cell Content Into Formula Command In Another Cell For Multiple Files Search

Apr 12, 2014

How to determine the correct formula for this requirement?

Assuming I have 2 individual excel files and an index excel file (in reality, there are more than hundreds of file). For index excel, once the user enter part number (eg. 1 or 2), the excel will look for the part number excel file and determine vlookup function.

The only problem I have here is I can not make the index file automatically add the part number shown on most left column into the required formula (replace the part number file section).

I tried use the indirect function but this require each file to be opened, which is not possible for actual use. I am looking for a function that can work in closed worksheet.

Search For Multiple Strings In A Cell(s)

Sep 16, 2013

I have a single column with multiple rows of data that contains multiple sports words (e.g.: football, basketball, track, hockey, swimming, skeet), and I want to find all cells that contain football, basketball and track. I also want to ignore case.

In this example only 3 rows would be found (3, 4, 8).

Sports Terms
------------
1. football, swimming, skeet
2. football, basketball, skeet
3. football, basketball, track, skeet
4. football, basketball, track, swimming, skeet
5. basketball, track, hockey, swimming
6. football, hockey, swimming, skeet
7. hockey, swimming, skeet
8. football, basketball, track, swimming
9. track, hockey, swimming, skeet
10. football, track, hockey, swimming, skeet

Here are 3 examples I found, but I do not even know where to insert them -pressing Cltrl+Shift+Enter does not do anything.

=IFERROR(IF(or(SEARCH("foottball",E2)>0,SEARCH("basketball",E2)>0,SEARCH("track",E2)>0)),"Yes",""),""),

=IF(COUNT(SEARCH(KeywordTable,E2)),"match","no match")

=SEARCH((A1:A10=‚ÄĚfootball‚ÄĚ))+SEARCH((A1:A10=‚ÄĚbasketball‚ÄĚ))+SEARCH((A1:A10=‚ÄĚtrack‚ÄĚ))

Is it possible to combine search results into a single cell?

On my spreadsheet I'd like to select from 4 columns and combine the result into 1 cell.

Columns P & R shown in 1 cell...

Sort of like this... if "K" = "CV537" and "H" = "0" then show the resulting date from "N" and duration from "R" in one cell somewhere.

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.

I then have another sheet within the same workbook with all the data in it with columns headed of Brand', 'MPAN' and 'Tariff'. It has to be an excat match using those three parameters though. I would like the parameters the user selects on the first sheet to be searched and found on the second sheet, with the figures in the cells next to the search result getting fed back into a set cells back on the first page.

Using The =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH Function To Search Multiple Cells)

Aug 21, 2009

I' having trouble using the =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH formula to search multiple cells.

I can get it to work to search one cell (as below):

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Same",G10)),"No Change",'Aug 09 Matrix'!F10)

(In this case the respone is No Change as Cell G10 contains "Same")

However cannot get it to work for several cells. I have pasted below and highlighted the function I would like it to perform:

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Same",G10:R10)),"No Change",'Aug 09 Matrix'!F10)

Essentially the other cells in that row (G10:R10) all contain "Same", however for some reason it is identifying this as FALSE and putting in the data from the 'Aug 09 Matrix' sheet.

Search For Multiple Text Strings Simultaneously In Single Cell?

May 23, 2013

I have a spreadsheet that has relatively clean data, but at the end of every row is a long notes fields (often filled with several paragraphs of text). I'm trying to search inside each one of those notes to see if it contains certain boilerplate language / legalese / key words.

If I was just looking for one word, it would be easy -- I would write =IFERROR(IF(SEARCH("keyword",E2)>0,"Yes",""),""). That way, if the keyword is present, it returns "Yes", and if it's not present, it returns a blank.

What I want to do, though, if look for a long list of keywords simultaneously, and if ANY of those keywords are present, have it return a "Yes".

So I could do something like =IFERROR(IF(or(SEARCH("keyword1",E2)>0,SEARCH("keyword2",E2)>0,SEARCH("keyword3",E2)>0,SEARCH("keyword4",E2)>0)),"Yes",""),""), but that seems horribly inefficient. Especially since my list of keywords is likely to change over time.

So what I want it to do is search each cell by simultaneous reference to an ever-changing table of keywords (call it [KeywordTable]). And I can't figure out how to do that. The search function is resisting all of my efforts to put multiple search values / a range of words inside of it.

To reiterate: the goal is to look at one cell filled with text, ask "does the text in that cell contain any of the keywords contained in [KeywordTable]", and if the answer is "Yes" return yes, and if the answer is no return no (or blanks).

How To Ask Formula To Search For Multiple Values Within One Search

Mar 4, 2014

I need one formula to copy and paste the checkcard data changing it from this "CHECKCARD XXXXXX5623" to "CHECKCARD 5623", but I need one formula to look for multiple known checkcard numbers. I will have more then one typically in the bank download so I need to search and copy at least two known numbers as shown below.

I am providing the formula that I am using right now, "=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("5623",B3)),RIGHT(B3,41),"")" but it only works for one checkcard number? Also I don't really need to capture the DEBIT or CREDIT that will always be at the end, it would be redundant. If it's easier to write the formula including that data that is no problem. What I want to copy and move into an adjacent cell is in red.

Here is the source data:
Row 2 - SONIC DRIVE IN#1531 AUSTIN TXDEBIT FOR CHECKCARD XXXXXX5623 DEBIT
Row 3 - JASON'S DELI # 125 Q64 AUSTIN TXDEBIT FOR CHECKCARD XXXXXX9718 DEBIT
