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).
I have a file with duplicate names of test id's in col a. In col b I have single test id's and col c I have test names. I need to search col a for exact match of test id in col b and if it is there then put the name of test in col c into col d.
See attached document. Basically I need to know the name associated with the ID in column B.
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
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.
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 Range("role_count").Select Selection.Find(What:=Role, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:= _ xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False _ , SearchFormat:=False).Activate
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 etc.
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() Columns("A:A").Select Selection.Find(What:="B", After:=ActiveCell, _ LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, _ SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False, _ SearchFormat:=False).Activate ActiveCell.Select 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.
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.
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.
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 am very new withe macro I recieve every day a CSV file from our supplier withe a list of the products that got updated withe new price, stock count, product ID etc.
I have my own worksheet with the product ID that we use, and I want to finde the exact match to my product ID in that CSV file and delete all other that don't match.
But i need them get deletede by rows thos product ID that dosen't match to my workbook.
I tried with this, so it could set an X in front of my match then i could filter and copy it to my workbook but it dosen't work: Because the same product ID is sometime in 100 rows and the X come only in front of one of them.
so with some macro. I need to have every row deleted that don't match to my list of product ID.
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 For...next 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
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
Code: 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.
I have a spreadsheet that contains data for a fiscal year broken out by month and quarter. I want the formula to return the data from that month and use whatever the latest quarter is. For example in the data below:
If it has only pulled data only thru Q1 it would return Q1 for Jan-Mar, however once I have Q2 data I would want the formula to return Q2 for the months of Jan-Mar.

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.
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.
Code: 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."
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.
In one sheet I have customer_code in one sheet (Customer_code) and this is multiple like
C00002604,C00002604,C00002604 and in another sheet (Customer_code_details)
I have the same code but here the count us much more than earlier sheet (Customer_code). if Customer code exists the same code 3 times the same code exists also in sheet (Customer_code_details) for 5 times.
In customer_code sheet I have 8724 data but Customer_code_details sheet I have 8840 data.
I am normally sorted the two columns and checking t manually.
I have written a basic search which pastes the results on to another sheet.It works, but i have a small issue with it.If I search for "A" it will give me all the results for "A" but it will also give me any result with a combination with "A" in it, eg. BA or BBA etc I need to have results based on the exact search. What do I need to do to make my search result and exact result?
This is currently what i have
Sub Rating() ' ' Rating Macro ' Dim Wrd As String[code]......
I have text values in 2 different columns A and B. I can use the conditional formula to find and highlight duplicates but only if they are an exact match. How do I modify if they are not exact match but for example start with the same 3-4 text values?
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 problem being is when it searches for Q1, Q10 is an acceptable answer ans so on. I need to get the 4th occurrence, but my research into Nth occurrence stuff is confusing.
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) End With
I'm trying to lookup XYZ plc in an array where the company names in col A are like XYZ plc (UK, London), ABC plc (Boston US) and I want the lookup to return a date in column 3. I've tried VLOOKUP(B2, LEN(LPR), 3, FALSE) where B2 is the cell holding XYZ plc and LPR is my array and it's not working.
I'm looking for help in tweaking existing code contributed by acw on ozgrid. The code he supplied compares 2 worksheets, it goes through the first sheet than highlights cells as it finds matches on sheet 2. However I also need it to find exact matches. For example if the numer it is searching for is 15 it must only find 15 not 01500, 015, 150 etc. Here is the post which contains the code and a sample workbook
