Search For A Phrase In Column - Function Return Error

Feb 18, 2013

I am trying to search for a phrase in a particular column but the excel search function is returning !Value as an error...

So, I really want to search for the city (Sheet1 Cell A1) in Notes Sheet2 Cell A1) and I want to return it in Sheet1 Cell B1 Whether it exisits in the notes. I then want to copy this down my list of cities in Sheet1 Column a.

Phrase Search Macro

Jan 26, 2014

I would like to write a macro which checks if phrase from column B (lets say 13845) can be found in column A cells.

For example DDH113845G389.

I think that it should be some kind of loop but I'm afraid I can't handle it.

VBA Function To Search Partial String And Return Value?

Jan 28, 2014

I'm trying to come up with a VBA function that would return cell values based on another cell value.

I can do this by comparing a range (column of cells) with the cell value to match and then return the value of the cell next to it.

For instance,

The function should search a column for partial text, as follows:

TS ID
PDT ID

TS 1.1
PDT 1

TS 1.2
PDT 2

TS 1.3
PDT 3

TS 2.1
PDT 4

TS 2.2
PDT 5

TS 3.1
PDT 6

TS 3.2
PDT 7

In the above table, the function should for partial text and return string as follows:

TS covered
PDTs

TS 1.1, TS 1.2, TS 1.3
PDT 1, PDT 2, PDT 3

TS 2.1, TS 2.2
PDT 4, PDT 5

TS 3.1, TS 3.2
PDT 6, PDT 7

So basically I am searching for partial text TS 1. and so on

Excel 2007 :: Search Box Function - Return Value / Text Not Location

May 15, 2014

I need code for a search box function, that returns the information recorded in a cell for example, "Barcelona" or "London" etc), instead of the location of the cells.

I will need to narrow it down to search only the information in the following columns:

Sheet2
I2:J10932

I am totally new to VBA coding and have stumbled my way through a few things, but everything I have searched for so far has had at least one error when transposing to Excel.

I am running Excel 2007.

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.

Find Multiple Numbers In One Column And Replace With Single Phrase In Another Column

Jan 31, 2013

I have taken over this spreadsheet for my work, and it is basically a statement in excel. What I want to do is find a list of invoice numbers in column B populated from a remittance, and then replace column F to say a specific thing depending on check number and date paying for that invoice. So if a check printed today I would have it replace column f to say paid 1/31/13 check # xxxxx. Currently I am searching for each invoice indivudually and then replacing with check number and date. There are about 200 invoices per month that I deal with, and it is a big waste of time!

For example from this

invoice #1 / reconciled (DATE)
invoice #2 / reconciled (DATE)

To this:

invoice #1 / paid (DATE) check # (xxxxx)
invoice #2 / paid (DATE) check # (xxxxx)

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.

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.

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".

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.
