Search For Words In Row In Other Row With Titles?

Jul 20, 2012

I need a functionality in Excel, but I can't get it done. I want to search multiple titles on multiple words.

1. I have a list with titles (tab A)
2. I have a list with words (tab B)

Now I want to scan all titles on words that appear on tab B and return the value of the word.

Example:

Title (tab A - column A)
Return (tab A - column B)
Words (tab B)
BrandX Shampoo Big
Shampoo
Eau de Toilette
BrandX Nailcutter
Nailcutter
Nailcutter
BrandX Eau de Toilette
Eau de Toilette
Shampoo

So for row 1 the word "shampoo" is reconised in the title and returns this value. Same for the other rows. I need the functionality like the formula below, but then with more words (from a list). I don't want to work with "OR" because the list with word is about 200+ and will be more in future.

=IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("shampoo",A1)),"x","shampoo")

Create A GUI For Search Engine To Show Titles

Mar 3, 2010

I have a worksheet with simple titles of books in a single colum, but want to create a user interface that is like a search engine to show titles.

Just a simple search window and search button. If I have a book named Mother Goose, and the user types in Mother, the search will show every title with that word in it. I have tried to do the advanced lookup I found here but I think I am not excel oriented enough to understand how to use it nor do I think it would do what I am looking for.

Search More Than 6 Words And Write By Using Macros

Feb 17, 2010

I want to search say in column A for specific words say ďDonĒ and then write in another column (say column 2) as ďoneĒ. Then it should keep searching for specific word until the last cell in that column and keep writing specific word in another column. It should do nothing if that specific word is not found.

I was able to use IF(ISERROR) but there is limitation of max 6 searches. Also i was able to achieve it by so many iteration of IF(ISERROR) and using autofilter.

My goal is to search around 30 to 40 criteria in one shot or by writing macros.
I guess i have presented my problem properly.

Search For Multiple Words Within Cell?

Feb 6, 2012

I'm trying to find if the description in Column L has any of the following words: (irrigation, sprinkler, water). The cell does not need to have all of the words, but just 1 to make the IF formula return a yes. view the example below and let me know where I am making the mistake. I don't want the case to be sensitive.

This is what I have so far, but it is only finding the first word.

This example returns nothing:

Text in Column L
Main irrigation line broken Need to repair

Formula in Column S
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH({"sprinkler","irrigation","water"},L203)),"Yes","No")

This example returns Yes:

Text in Column L
Irrigation broken sprinklers and broken lateral li

Formula in Column S
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH({"sprinkler","irrigation","water"},L210)),"Yes","No")

Modifying VBA Function To Search Only Complete Words?

Mar 19, 2014

I've been working on a method to search a single column of 1000+ cells containing a paragraph with a 250+ word keyword list (also in a single column). I'm needing only complete words to be searched/ displayed regardless of spacing & punctuation. I've tried multiple methods the past few days and the one that worked (Macro with 4 complex formulas) was unusable when scaled out to all 1,000 rows due to the extremely long calculating time. I don't know VBA yet but was able to modify and create a user defined function that does everything I need except it displays string results that are not whole words (Ex. search for air, word in cell is fair, displays a result for air).

PHP Code: 

Function RangeSearch2(text As String, wordlist As Range, seperator As String, Optional caseSensitive As Boolean = False)    
Dim strMatches As String    Dim res As Variant    Dim arrWords() As String    Dim skip As Boolean    skip = False    
On Error Resume Next    Err.Clear    For Each word In wordlist            If caseSensitive = False Then      

[Code] ...........

Modifying A Sumproduct Formula To Search For Words In A Cell

Jul 7, 2009

My current formula is this: =SUMPRODUCT((Str311A=1)*(Str311C=15)*(Str311G<>" DM "),Str311L). All the items starting with Str311 are formula's associate with a name. What I'm trying to do is add one more factor into the formula. I need it to look in column I for any cell that contains the words L/S. I tried modifying the formula to this but it does not work:

SUMPRODUCT((Str311A=1)*(Str311C=15)*(Str311I="*L/S*")*(Str311G<>" DM "),Str311L)

The formula contained inside the names are:

Str311=OFFSET(Outlet!$A$1,MATCH("STORE # 163311",Outlet!$A:$A,0)-1,0,MATCH("TOTAL FOR STORE : 163311 SAN MARCOS",Outlet!$A:$A,0)-MATCH("STORE # 163311",Outlet!$A:$A,0)+1,1)

Str311A=OFFSET(Str311,0,0)

Str311C=OFFSET(Str311,0,2)

Str311I=OFFSET(Str311,0,8)

Str311G=OFFSET(Str311,0,6)

What I need is a way to modify my original formula to now also only match cells that contain the phrase L/S. The phrase can be located at the beggining, middle, or end of the cell characters.

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.

Auto-calculate 2 Column That Contains Numbers And Words Words

Jul 16, 2009

I've been using conventional method to do this and it's time consuming. I would like to total up 2 column. A multiply B to be exact. Below are some examples:

Table 1 - Before totaling up:

Quantity
Product
5
2 x Button A White
3
4 x Button B Pink
4
5 x Ribbon A Black
2
3 x Thread A White
6
2 x Cloth A Blue

Table 2 - After totaling up:

Quantity
Product
10
Button A White
12
Button B Pink
20
Ribbon A Black
6
Thread A White
12
Cloth A Blue

I need to have the sum of the "Quantity" multiply "Product". Or in short A x B.
And the end result need to have the number and "x" sign removed while keeping on the the products names. (2 x ) Take note it's "number" space "symbol" space.

Find Words - Deleting The Words - And Deleting Some Info After The Words.

Jun 23, 2006

I am trying to find certain words in a column and delete the word and characters following. For example, Say I have a column of info as seen below. This is a test of me. I am just experimenting with this stuff. Deleted (6/15/01) Let me know what you think. I am not sure about it all, but I guess I will figure it out. riviledge1 (01/05/06) Now let's see what happens when I try to test it.

I want to find all the "Priviledge1 (01/05/06)" and replace with nothing. Please note, the date will change with each record, so I need to figure out how to tell Excel to find "Priviledge1", delete it and the date behind it. So I want to delete "Priviledge1" and the next 11 characters including the space.

How To Turn Abbreviated Words Into Full Words

Feb 4, 2013

On to the topic, I have all the US and Canadian states abbreviated (CO = Colorado, etc.) and was wondering if there is a way to make all of them convert to their respective names in one fell swoop instead of writing it in for each one, one at a time. Something along the lines where I can make, CO = Colorado, TX = Texas and then hit enter and all of the abbreviations would convert. Some kind of command.

Combining List Of Words Into New Words, Conjugation

Feb 15, 2007

I have 4-5 separate lists of words/letters and I would like to combine them in a certain order but creating all possible combinations resulting a new word. It's like a conjugation tool for verbs. For example if List 1 = be/el/ki/meg; List 2= m List3=e/ť; List4= gy/" "; List 5=" "/ek/sz/nnek So the output has to be (if the order is List1+List2+List3+List4+List5)= bemegy/bemegyek/bemegysz/bemesz/bemťsz/elmegy/elmennek/ ..... and all possible combinations.

Preferentially I would like to automate it in a way that it straight outputs into MS Access. Also can it be automated that it reads the list from a file (database)?
(Also can it recognize the word by letters? Because the basic word that I would load the program= List2+List3+List4)

Countif Sequencing Of Titles?

Jul 24, 2014

I need a column to autopopulate based on quantities of title entered by a user.

Each row has a Type (Column A) and a Sequence # (Column B), and I can get as far validating if a given row has same Type and Sequence# <= the sum of the quantities.

Now I'm struggling with counting down through the quantity of each title.

Each title should exhaust itself before moving on.

First Row (for Column Titles) Not Move

Specified Dates As Column Titles In Bar Graph?

Jun 27, 2014

It appears that the bar graph automatically turns all dates into the first day of the year in question.

For example, what I have in the source chart is the following 3 dates: 6/11/14, 6/11/13, 6/11/12, however when I convert the table into a bar graph, it changes the dates to 1/1/14, 1/1/13, and 1/1/12.

Here's a snip of the table: Data source.JPG

And here's a snip of the chart: Chart.JPG

I've tried going into the advanced settings and making the intervals fixed (starting at 6/11/12 with 1 year intervals), however it does not seem to change the display.

Converting Reference Numbers To Titles?

Feb 3, 2014

I have exported a dataset with references numbers and I want to convert those reference numbers into the titles they refer to. I have a separate sheet that matches the reference number to the title and would normally use a LOOKUP function [=LOOKUP(A2,Key::Table 1::A,Title)] to do this but, in this instance, I have multiple reference numbers in a cell separated by commas. How can I get the function to lookup multiple numbers from the same cell?
