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.

Record/write Macros Independent Of A Specific File

Oct 12, 2009

I have recorded (i.e. manually as opposed to writing VBA code) a number of macros to perform a routine, however they do not work when I change the filename.

Could someone please advise on how to edit these macros (which reference a specific filename) so that they work when the file name is changed. The macros copy and paste values from different worksheets and then run another set of macros. However all macros and worksheets are located within one excel file

VLOOKUP - Search Only One Word From Long Text, Write

Feb 22, 2010

Attached is the mock excel spreadsheet. I want to read "sam" from the lookup column's long text "sam is good" and then write "4" in the next column. Similarly read "white" from the long text "white is tired" and write "1". And so on,,,,, For more criteria, see box highlighted in yellow,,,,I used VLOOKUP but what am able to make it work only when there is one word "sam" in the lookup column. It returns #NA when the text is "sam is good". It should write nothing if none of the criteria is met and should keep doing until the last cell in the lookup column.

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")

Excel 2010 :: Macro To Search List Then Write Selective Items To Another Sheet

Dec 12, 2013

The sheet shown, Complaints, lists on each row information on a single complaint. This information extends from Col A to Col Y (though not that way here, the data actually begins in row 3). I want to highlight a Customer cell, say H227 for Customer A, then activate a macro that (1) recognizes the active customer (here A), searches the list, identifies each row where A is the customer and then writes each row into sheet "Event" beginning in row 4. I should then see the same A to Y cells of information, beginning in row 4, filled in sheet Event for the six customer A complaints. Note, the actual data in sheet Complaints involves 300 rows of data, and over 100 customers can be on the list, some up to 15 times. I know that I could do this by filtering the data, copying and pasting, but a simple macro would be quicker for the group of individuals involved. Note, I then use this information to populate a chart.

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.

Keyword Search - Macros To Change Font Color For Specific Keywords (not Entire Cell)

May 5, 2014

I need to conduct keyword searches in excel and color the keywords a different color without changing the font color of the entire cell. now, i found some code from another thread that does this, but i cant seem to get it to work with more than 2 keywords. i need fine-tuning the provided code to do what i need it to do.

[URL]

the VBA code i used was this:

[Code].....

I was playing around with the example, the Cat_Mouse.xlsm, and when i modified the 'myList' and 'myColor' arrays, it does not work.

Cat_Mouse.xlsm

For example, I modified the code to add the word bat:

[Code] .....

When i run the macros, the word "Bat" does not become colored red. interestingly enough, when i substitute the word "bat" for the word "hat" in the "myLIST array, the word "hat" does change to the red font.

I am looking to use this code to address keywords in my excel file by coloring all key words red and i have more than 10 key words.

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)

Encourage Enabling Of Macros: Disable Macros When Opening Then The Worksheet Menu Bar And Other Command Bars Are Still Available

Aug 26, 2009

I have an Excel 2003 program that contains macros. One of the macros hides certain command bars and disables the worksheet menu bar. On close the opposite is true. The problem is, if a user uses the disable macros when opening then the worksheet menu bar and other command bars are still available. I would like to hide all of the data sheets and display another sheet that would normally be hidden displaying a message that the macros have to be enabled for the program to work correctly if disable macros is chosen. When the enable macros are used I would like the Error page to be hidden.

Enable/Disable Macros When No Macros Are Present

Jul 28, 2008

I have a user that keeps a maintenance log in an Excel worksheet and sends an updated copy once a week to a board member. Two weeks ago, the board member started complaining that he was prompted to enable/disable macros on opening and became worried when my user stated that no macros were used in the book. He is now concerned that we have sent him a virus.

I know the file is clean because I've scanned it, and when I look at the file in VB, there are no modules or classes present just the Sheets 1-3 and the ThisWorkbook file. None of these objects have any code in them. My user does have some macros in PERSONAL.XLS but they are not used in the workbook in question.

No one else gets the prompt for enabling/disabling macros. Even if I set my security to prompt for any macros, I get no message. I'm convinced that there must be some setting in his Excel that is causing this individual to get this message. Is there anything else other than a macro that would cause this?
