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.

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

Find An Exact Match In A Column

Apr 27, 2009

I am having a slight VBA issue I need a little help with. I have created a catalog of books in Column A. As each new letter is reached there is a new heading. For example:

Cell A1 : A
Cell A2 : Book beginning with A #1
Cell A2 : Book beginning with A #2
Cell A3 : Book beginning with A #3
Cell A4: B
Cell A5 : Book beginning with B #1
Cell A6 : Book beginning with B #2
Cell A7 : Book beginning with B #3
Cell A8 : C

What I am looking to do is create a macro for each letter so that if I went to the "B" macro it would make the active cell A4. However the list of books will grow as my library does, so the macros have to find the letter rather than go to a predefined cell.

The code I have so far is (this example is for the letter B):

Sub B()
Selection.Find(What:="B", After:=ActiveCell, _
LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, _
SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False, _
End Sub

However this code finds the first time the letter B is used in a word, not the cell that only has the letter B in it. Also I need to make sure that if the active cell when the macro is run is below the letter that it needs to find that it will still find it. I'm not sure if my current code would do that or not.

Extracting Row And Column Header Coordinates From Value Search?

Mar 6, 2014

If the could be longer I would have included "when multiple cells can contain the same value"

I have a very large dataset that I would like to apply the following searches to, but I will include a smaller sample that gets at the point.

For example; in the following sheet:
Cat Dog Lizard
Red 1 2 3
Yellow 4 5 6
Green 7 8 1

If I search for "2", I would like to get back "Red" and "Dog". I was able (by looking at other posts) come up with a series of formula that allow me to obtain the sheet coordinates and convert them into column and row headers (using SUMPRODUCT Row/Column); however, when multiple cells contain the same value, the output becomes the sum of that coordinate and is no longer a reference to a specific header, so a search for "1" would not give me "Red" and "Cat". Ideally, if I searched for "1" I would get back "Red" & "Cat" as well as "Green" & "Lizard", but I would be satisfied with a formula that even just gave me back one of the two header pairs.

Returning Column Header That Corresponds To A Match

Jul 17, 2006

I need to return the column header in a table which corresponds to the column that the value I'm querying is in. I've been trying to use the INDEX function coupled with MATCH and COLUMNS function but I'm not getting anywhere. I've found on the web a solution that uses SUMPRODUCT but I can't get that to work either. Unfortunately, I can't supply the data I'm working with as it is confidential. I know my question would be easier to answer if I could supply it.

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.

Macro: Search Down Column & Match Then Offset

Nov 19, 2006

I have created some code to look in a cell to see if the name matches that which has been input in a drop down list on a combo box on an input form and then copy the value of column 10 in the same row. I created a public variable for that name as txtTenant.

What I wanted to do was to then write the code that if the first cell did not match the name selected (txtTenant) that it would then drop down one cell and compare it and keep going down until it finds a match, right down to the end of the column of data if necessary.

My coding is not working - it stays at the first person it finds in the first cell. I am not sure if I should be using loops or loop.....

This is the
Sub FillData()

Application. ScreenUpdating = False

RentRow = 2 'sets the first row as row 2 in the data sheet to copy from
NewRentRow = 7 'seta the row to copy to in txtTenant

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.

Search Column, Match And Insert Copied Range

Apr 30, 2007

I'm currently trying to insert the copy range of one worksheet to another. Let's say I have 3 worksheets, one main and two additional info sheet. I want to search column C in main worksheet for blank cell and use column F in the same row as the worksheet name which I want to copy from, then use column E from main worksheet as the keyword for the range I want to copy(range from column E to column Z). But when inserting, I want the keyword in main worksheet such as 'G' in the same row as blank cell to match the 'G' in copied worksheet. Because the 'G' in main worksheet is not in the same column for each row, I try to search the forum but can't find the inserting part. I also attach the example workbook.

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."

Exact Match And Offset More Than Once?

Feb 17, 2009

I have one condition which needs to be matched. This code I wrote can find the first instance and then offset data to another worksheet accordingly.

My question is whether than can be done for every other instance that appears on my sourcesheet 'Invoicing'. I have considered putting a loop in, but this will only find the first instance over and over again which is pointless.

Hlookup & Exact Match

I know that you can use false on a Vlookup to get an exact match but it does not appear to be working with Hlookup.

VLOOKUP When Exact Match Is Not Found?

Mar 6, 2014

When an exact match to the lookup value is not found, the function goes to the highest value that is less than the lookup value.

What do I do if I want to return the closest value, but not less than the lookup value?

For exampe, in my screenshot, if my lookup value is 6 horsepower, I want to return the efficiency for the next highest value (if no exact match) for 7.5 HP. Function would return 89.5

VBA Find Exact Match And Nth Occurrence

May 30, 2012

This section of code I am working on requires me to find an exact text (I tried lookat:=xlWhole, but I can't get it to work right).

The search is in a single column.

With Workbooks("FY12-Q3 Data Tables.xlsx").Sheets("PBA Crosstabs").Columns(1)
Set c = .Find(rCell, LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole)
Set c = .Find(rCell, After:=c, lookat:=xlWhole)
Set c = .Find(rCell, After:=c, lookat:=xlWhole)
Set c = .Find(rCell, After:=c, lookat:=xlWhole)
