Search For String In And Error If Not Found

Feb 8, 2012

I manage to do a proper search and the return value is correct, but the problem is when I don't get the correct value excel gives me an error, what I can add to make the result just to give me MsgBox "Not found"?

Code below:

Set Ran = Worksheets(2).Range("A:A").Find(CompName, lookat:=xlPart)
If Not Ran Is Nothing Then
MatchRow = Ran.Row
MatchCol = Ran.Column
End If

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.

Search For Decimal And When Found Pass Row Number To Rest Of String?

Feb 12, 2014

I am trying to search through column "I" for numbers that are decimals, when the first decimal is found, use the row number that the first decimal appears in the string that populates the bookmarks stored in a word template I have created. The code I have so far checks for the decimal and then populates the bookmarks, however it requires me to input the ranges manually, meaning I can set them as the first row in my tabel. But if the decimal appears in the second row and not the first I'm bookmarking the wrong data. Here is the code I have so far;

Error Search Code: Serial Number Not Found

Aug 13, 2007

I have the following code to search for serial numbers.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim Message, Title, Default, SearchString
Message = "Enter Serial Number" ' Set prompt.
Title = "Find Serial Number" ' Set title.
Default = "" ' Set default.
' Display message, title, and default value.
SearchString = InputBox(Message, Title, Default)

'SearchString = "Rob"
Set S = Sheets.Application
For Each S In Application.Sheets
With S.Range("A1:IV65536")
Set f = .Find(SearchString, MatchCase:=True, LookAt:=xlWhole, LookIn:=xlValues)
If Not f Is Nothing Then
f.Offset(, 3) = Date
Exit For
End If
End With
Next S

End Sub
I would like to amend this so that (a) if the serial number is not found I get a message box saying "Serial number not found" and (b) if the serial number is found, I would like it to highlight the relevant row (after inserting the date).

Find String Within Worksheet & Handle Error If Not Found

Jun 17, 2008

this line

Cells. Find(What:=searchterm, After:=Cells(1, 1), MatchCase:=False).Activate 'find pn that is stored in searchterm

causes a runtime error 91 when there are no results. "Object variable or with block variable not set"

Ideally, when there are no results, I would like to enter a loop, where I could provide a drop down list of fuzzy matches, but I am not sure excel can do fuzzy matches. I'd settle for just highlighting the row and moving on... any help?

Option Explicit

Sub Macro1()

ActiveSheet.Cells.Find(What:="AES", After:=Cells(1, 1), MatchCase:=False).Activate 'find the aes part number column
Dim aescolumn 'create variable for index value of aes column
aescolumn = ActiveCell.Column 'set variable to index number

Looped Error Check Not Working: Error 1004 Is Generated When A Match Cannot Be Found In The Spreadsheet

Jul 2, 2006

the if stattement works perfectly and does exactly what i want except when it comes to the else part. if there is no error the statements are run perfectly but if there is an error (in this case the error is generated when a match cannot be found in the spreadsheet) the else statement doesnt kick in and post the msgbox.
the code just crashes. and returns an error 1004 on the line i have highlighted in yellow

res = WorksheetFunction.Match(invvar, Columns(1), 0)
If Not IsError(res) Then

Me.txtClientID.Value = ws13. Cells(res, 7)
Me.txtNumber.Value = ws13.Cells(res, 7)
Me.txtDate.Value = ws13.Cells(res, 8)

Vba Macro Error: Compile Error Named Argument Not Found

Apr 26, 2006

I have some code that, although works fine in Excel 2003, does not in Excel 1997. I receive this error when I try running it:


Dim r As Range, myStr As String
myStr = "HP"
Set r = Cells. Find(What:=myStr, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt _
:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _
False, SearchFormat:=False)
If Not r Is Nothing Then
r = r.Value
While Not r Is Nothing
Set r = Cells.FindNext(r)
If Not r Is Nothing Then
r = r.Value
End If
End If
End Sub

It looks like Excel is getting hung up on the "SearchFormat:=" portion of the code.

VBA Find Partial String In Array And Output Found String Array Value?

Mar 31, 2014

I am trying to do a sort of index match thing using VBA. What I am attempting to do is to use the prefix of a long number and try to find that exact prefix in a string array, and output that string array value. So this is what I have so far as a test:


So I can match the text exactly so if I put PREFIXB in cell A1 in this example, i will get the msg box saying "YES", but if I make it PREFIXB1231k4j3jj1kj32cj, it will display "NO". I want to get it so that PREFIXB will be displayed in the cell that I put the formula in. So if A1 = "PREFIX1AAA100CF" and cell B1 = "=ABC(A1)", cell B1 will display "PREFIX1AAA".

Now the thing is that these prefixes can have different lengths, but will never encompass the exact prefix of another. So if I had a prefix of: PRE1AB, I won't have a prefix of PRE1A.

Search 1 Column All Worksheets & Go To Found Values

I need a VBA script that can display a search box on multiple sheets within the same workbook similar to using ctrl + F and search values in column B only. If there is text or the row happens to be empty then it should skip that and only search numbers. Also the numbers in column B range from 50000 to 89000 and if there is a wrong number entered then I want to have a pop up box saying Error: invalid value or something like that.

Search Table & Return Heading Of Found Value

Sep 8, 2007

In a large spreadsheet that receives external data, I have codes (U, N or V) allocated at various times to different rows as shown in sample worksheet attached. Elsewhere in the spreadsheet, I need to display (for later export) these codes along with their respective number in a sorted list. Please review the attached:

In the spreadsheet you'll see a column of codes, the next column is the data reference number, then to the right is three columns, one for each code. As displayed in the sample book attached, each Code column is to display the data reference number (from column 2)that matches that column's code.

What formula can I use to list these numbers in the appropriate columns?

Use VBA To Search Worksheets - If Value Is Found Copy Only Those Sheets Into New Workbook

Dec 5, 2013

I found some useful code for copying specific worksheets into a new workbook based on the sheet name, which I have not been able to alter to suit my needs.

I have a workbook that has a Master Sheet that contains a summary of each claim (Name, type of claim, dates, dollar amounts, etc.) and a sheet for each specific claim.

I know I can use the filter feature on the master sheet to view all of the physical damage claims (and one column has a hyperlink to the worksheet for that specific claim). But every month I have to create a report that shows each type of claim, dates, and so on.

I would like to create a macro that can copy the worksheets to a new workbook based on the type of claim it is. I'm thinking something like for each ws in wb if range ("F15") = 1 & .range ("B4") < 30 days from today copy that sheet into a new wb.

Below is a generic and far smaller version of my workbook. The name column contains my hyperlinks to the specific sheet. Each sheet is also named based on the text in the name column (so John Doe's sheet would be named 'John Doe') and so forth.

Date of Loss

Search Column Bottom Up Then Delete Rows Based On Value Found

Jul 7, 2009

I've attached a dummy worksheet that shows constant values of 1.00 in columns D and E. In the actual workbook, user action will sometimes cause these values to change to something other that 1.00. The user may wish to delete the action that caused the change.

I need a macro that will search from the last cell in column D upward to the first instance of a cell that is not equal to 1.00 and select that cell and those immediately above with the same value as the first found cell.

For example, in the attached worksheet the search would start in the last cell of Columd D and search upward. It would find cell D23 and upward to D19. These entire rows would be deleted.

How To Suppress Macro Search-replace Warning When No Data Found

Dec 29, 2011

I have written a macro to convert data from a report exported from to a format that is acceptable for upload to our website. One of the necessary conversions is to convert values from a Boolean value to a Y/N value. I wrote a macro with a series of search-replace commands such as this:

'replace 0s and 1s in "Direct Billing" column with appropriate data
Selection.Replace What:="0", Replacement:="N", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
This code generates a warning when no "0" values are found:

"Microsoft Office Excel cannot find any data to replace. Check if your search formatting and criteria are defined correctly. If you are sure that matching data exists in this workbook, it may be on a protected sheet. Excel cannot replace data on a protected worksheet."

File Not Found Error In Add-in

I am trying to open an Add-In file (that I wrote) and I am now getting the following error "File Not Found". I am sure it has to do with a typo in the code or something.

However, I cannot get anything to open up so that I can see the VBA code. The spreadsheet itself does not contain any data, just the VBA project.

how I can get at the code to fix it?

I tried to upload the file, but it is too big for the requirements.
