Search And Compile Multiple Spreadsheets

Jul 6, 2013

The company deals with Machine services, we maintain, service and brake-fix machine problems, the machines are manufactured my ourselves and there are approximately 15 different machines.

We have a Field Service spreadsheet that is filled in by all service engineers for every job they go on, this is filled in with information like:-

Serial Number
Machine Type
Hours Run Time
Reason for Visit
Reported Problem
etc, etc

All the forms are identical so all the fields are identical

Field Service Record Spares 2013 Master Rev4 (2).xlsx (this is the correct file). The forms are then saved on a central server folder and stored in month order.

Is there a way of creating a master excel sheet to gather all the information from all the Field Service spreadsheets which would then allow me to search all sheets by serial number or fault, without me having to copy and paste all the information into the master sheet??

We have 10 service engineers and each fills out 1 sheet per job per week, so a 4 week job will have 4 sheets for 1 engineer. an engineer could go on 5 jobs in 1 week and would therefore fill out 5 sheets. so we could be looking at in excess of 500 Field Service spreadsheet per year.

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?

Search For A String In Multiple Files

I require the code for the following task.

I'm getting an input string from the user in an excel sheet(e.g. input.xls) .I have to search for that string in a group of excel files present in the same folder in which the input.xls file also present.The range of that cell in which the string is found (e.g. A1 ) has to be stored in a variable.

I know that Vlookup is an option but the number of excel files to be searched is more that 50.

Search Multiple Keywords In A String?

Jan 22, 2014

I am busy building a spreadsheet that must do the following.

A
B
C
D
E

[Code].....

Above is a basic example of the data I am using What the spreadsheet must do is it must search cell B1 for the key word in in cell E1, if it does not find the keyword, it must search the same cell for the keyword in cell E2 and so on if it finds the key word it must return a consatination of cell A1 and the Keyword.

This is easy enough to do using the search function together with a couple of nested IF statements but where the problem comes in is that I am needing to run the search on about 12000 lines using over 10000 key words.

currently I have sheet with a formula in Column A containing 40 nested IFs searching for the first 40 key the same formula in Column B searching for the next 40 keywords and so on but to search 10 000 keywords(Client name or Client number) I am needing to apply this formula to 250 columns over 12000 line which makes the sheet very resource incentive.

How do I streamline this to make the spreadsheet more efficient

Multiple Criteria Search In Text String?

Sep 24, 2013

I have 2 columns ,A and B, in a table and text strings in C. Each table row A1 and B1 needs to be compared and matched with the text string C:C. Only if both, A1 and B1, are found in the same string, say C5, it has to return A1&B1. If not, return "Not Found".

Several Obsticles:

1. A and B are text and number
2. C is text with different numbers saved as text and words all mixed up
3. There is no defined format for the text, it is different in each string
A
B
C

With all these different formats and inconsistency, is it even possible?

Search Multiple Worksheets For Text String Then Sum Corresponding Values?

Sep 24, 2010

I have a workbook that contains 18 sheets of data. These worksheets are named according to their respective client names (AAA Shine, Fern Barn, Oracle, etc. for example). On each of these sheets, is a column (Column B), that has a salesperson's name in it (Fred, Joe, Ted, Anne... there are about 10 names total). On each sheet, there are corresponding values for the revenue from that account for each month of the year. Those values appear in Column L (Jan), M(Feb), N(Mar),... W(Dec).

What I would like to have is formula that will look at each sheet, find all the instances of Fred for January, sum them, and report them in a single cell on a different sheet I have called "Summary". The end result will be a total revenue from all customers, for each sales person, by month, in one summary sheet.

Search And Compare Cell Values In Different Spreadsheets

Feb 22, 2007

I have two worksheets with products that I need to compare.

Each product has a code and a product name in the following format:
Column A has the product code and column D the product name,for
example:

ColumnA:
AM1BL15X

ColumnD:
AGLO MEL BLANCO 1C 15MM 215X244

Both sheets *should* have the same data in them but there are 4000
products that need to have their description verified.So I need to go
down each row on Sheet1 , extract the product code from
Sheet1.ColumnA and the product name from Sheet1.ColumnD. Then do a
search on Sheet2 for the product code (Sheet2.ColumnA) and verify that
the product description on sheet2 (Sheet2.ColumnD) is the same as in
Sheet1.ColumnD. If it matches,everything is OK. If not there is
something wrong. So Im thinking that maybe the product codes that
dont have matching descriptions could be entered in to a separate
worksheet so that someone can check it later.

Ive been reading around and found these code samples from this site
[url]:


Dim rng1 as Range, i as Long
Dim cell as Range
With worksheet("Sheet1")
set rng1 = .Range(.Cells(1,1),.Cells(1,1).End(xldown))
End With

i = 0
for each cell in rng1

if cell.Value worksheets("Sheet2") .Range("A1").Offset(i,0).Value
Then
' do what - they don't match
else
' do what - they match
End if
i = i + 1
Next

Ive been trying to make some changes but I dont quite know how to get this working to do what I want and I only get errors.

VBA To Search String And Insert Row If String Not Found

Apr 11, 2013

I have a spreadsheet which has "Employee: [agent 1 name]" in column A and it may or may not have the word "Break" in the same column before it mentions "Employee: [agent 2 name]". The amount of data between agent 1 and agent 2 varies and am needing code which will insert a row above "Employee: [agent 2 name]" if "Break" is not found, and add the word "Break" in column A on the inserted row. I would need this to loop through the spreadsheet until all 100+ agents have been searched.

I'm also needing this done for the word "Meeting" and would insert a row 2 rows above the next agent.

Switching Between Multiple Spreadsheets

Oct 23, 2007

I'm having a problem with how excel opens my files. Up until yesterday when I would open any of my spreadsheets they would open seperately. I would have multiple files open across my taskbar and could easily switch between files with a simple Alt-tab windows function.

Now when I open multiple excel files it opens them under "one" file so to speak. The only way to switch between files is if I go to Window>then select the file I want or minimize within excel so I can see the other spreadsheets.

Modify Multiple Spreadsheets At Once

Apr 28, 2008

i have admit forms for multiple patients, about 200 or so already done, and its set up to make an upload sheet, which we then add all of them to one big file to import to access. i am in the process of cleaning things up, but we need to add a formula to a cell to determine length of stay, and several similar things, but i'd like to not have to go and do it file by file.

is there any way to update all the files at once? some kind of automation? then changes would be in the same cell for each file.

or maybe some way to do a batch modify or something, so it can make the change, and run the two macros, one to make upload for file, one to dump it in the file that goes into access.

Inserting To Multiple Spreadsheets

Jun 20, 2008

after finishing a huge macro, the last step is to take row 1 of sheet 1 and insert it at the top of every worksheet.

This is the first way I tried it. It does absolutely nothing (except copy the row).

For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
Sheets("Sheet1").Range("1:1").Copy
ws.Range("1:1").Insert Shift:=xlDown
Next ws
This was another try, which resulted in a 1004 "Select method failed" error

Copy From Multiple Spreadsheets

Dec 1, 2006

I have a workbook to collate ratings for staff, there are three sheets, one is a summary of data, and two are sheets that can have data entered into them, called "Eligible" and "Ineligible".

I would like to write a macro to search cells in "Eligible" that contain a staff number, and copy this data to "Summary". If excel encounters a blank cell, i.e it has no staff number in it, it will move to she sheet "Ineligible" and perform the same operation, pasting the data below that which has been copied from "Eligible"

To further complicate things, every time the macro runs to populate "Summary" I would like it to clear the existing data in "Summary", to allow for deletions in "Eligible" or "Ineligible".

Conditional Formatting Across Multiple Spreadsheets?

Jun 5, 2014

I'm trying to set up conditional formatting to show when an employee is both scheduled to be working for the current date, and is trained in a particular task.

I have a spreadsheet called "Training" for all of the tasks that employees can be trained in, with the employee names in each row, and the task names at the top of each column. The intersection of an employee's row with a task's column will have an "X" if the employee is trained in the task. This is the spreadsheet that I'd like to be formatted; if the employee is trained and also scheduled to be working, I'd like to the "X" to change to a different color.

There are separate spreadsheets within the same workbook for the schedule. This is a bit more complex since the since each week of the schedule has its own spreadsheet within the workbook; each spreadsheet is named for the Saturday of the week it is for, such as "06-07". I've been able to successfully have other formulas in the workbook auto-adjust to the current week's schedule by using variations on the TODAY function (something like INDIRECT("'"&(TEXT(TODAY()-MOD(WEEKDAY(TODAY(),1),7),"mm-dd"))), but I'm not sure how to incorporate this into conditional formatting. On each schedule sheet, there is a column for each day of the week and a row for each employee. The cell for a given day will contain the employee's schedule if they are scheduled, or it will be blank if they are not scheduled. So, the conditional formatting formula would just need to check to see if the appropriate cell was blank or not.

I've written a routine to loop through the list of files and open them, I just want to know how, if possible, i can automatically import the required macros.
