# 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 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.

Q: What is the most elegant way to accomplish this within a single formula that I could paste into each cell in Column B?

## 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/Find Values From Multiple Tables/Worksheets

Aug 21, 2006

As in attached file, I have 5 tables:
Table 1: matrix that contains Weight data in each cell
Table 2: matrix that contains Code data in each cell
Table 3: Relationship between Code and Level data
Table 4: Table with relationship between Weight data, Code data and Level data
Table 5: I want to populate each cell in Table 5 matrix from getting values from Table 4 by looking up the right value from Table 5 based on :
1) Weight data from corresponding cell in Table 1
2) Code data from corresponding cell in Table 2
3) Code and Level relationship.

for e.g. to get value for Table 5, Worksheet cell B140 ( intersection of A1-A1),
1) corresponding weight is 1.17 as in Table 1 (Weight data) (Worksheet cell B3)
2) corresponding Code is 6 as in Table 2 (Code data) (Worksheet cell B35)
3) Code 6 corresponds to Level 2 (as seen in Table 3)(Worksheet cell A74)

so, looking up the 3 values from Table 4 i.e. Level 2, Code 6, Weight 1.17, one gets cell AR98 with corresponding value. therefore, final value in Table 5, Worksheet cell B140 (intersection of A1-A1) will be equal to \$4.00

I have been trying to solve this using Vlookup, Hlookup, Index/Match but am getting confused. Also, not too sure if this can be done in 1 step. New to these excel and these functions

Jul 30, 2009

I am trying to create a formula to display a string of text that refers to multiple cells. for example, =If(A1=0,"insert text here" &B1 "insert more text here" &B2 "insert even more text here" &B3, "insert text here" &C1 "Insert text here").
It works fine for one cell value, like ="Total: " &A1

## Combining Text And Cell Values From Multiple Worksheets

Dec 1, 2013

I have the below macro which is failing to insert text into A1 of the Header Sheet, followed by the values in the designated cells that are from Sheet1. I would also like to have the values in cells J2 and K2 enclosed in single quotes.

ActiveSheet.Cells(1, 1).Select
ActiveCell.Value = "create or replace" & " '" & Sheet1.Range("J2").Cell.Value & "' " & " '" Sheet1.Range("K2").Cell.Value & "' "

## Search Multiple Worksheets Against List Of Non-Exact Search Criteria?

Nov 2, 2009

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.

## Search Cell For Text String And Paste Text In Based On Finding?

Jun 29, 2014

I need to create a macro to do the following:

Search the activecell for a text string (a), and then either paste in text string (b) at the end of the cell if (a) is found, or text string (c) if (a) is not found.

For example, if the activecell has "AA/" in it, I want the cell to become "AA/01" (pasting in "01" at the end), and if the cell has just "AA" in it, I want it to still become "AA/01" (pasting "/01" at the end). The macro will be linked to a commandbutton.

## Search Cell To See If It Contains Certain String Of Text

Jun 13, 2014

I need to find a formula which will search a list of cells looking for a particular text string. If it doesn't find this text string it then needs to search for the next one. For instance if I had a list of product codes: ABCD1234, BCD1234, ABCD2345, CDE23456, BCD2345 I want the formula to look up and see if the cell contains the text ABCD and if so return ABCD as the value, if not I want it to go on and see if the cell contains BCD and return the value BCD, if not then go on and search the value CDE etc. It seems like an easy job to do manually but I have a list of over 3000 codes to do this.

## Search Each Cell In Row For Text String

Jun 11, 2008

I am using VB and need to search each cell in the row for a string "U30". If it appears, then I need to grab that plus the next three digits, "U30XXX". Otherwise, I need to grab the last six in that row (=RIGHT(M2,6)). I am not sure how to structure the If statement in VB. I searched the forum and help files, but was not sure what to do from here. Currently, I have...

Range("I2").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=RIGHT(RC[4],6)"

Range("I2").Select
Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("I2", Cells(Rows.Count, "I")), Type:=xlFillDefault

## Search For A String In Multiple Files

Apr 17, 2013

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 For String Across Multiple Spreadsheets?

Aug 1, 2013

I have 5 sheets in my workbook and I need to find out if a string exists in any of them. The string would always be in column L of the work sheet. I have searched many places but cant seem to get anything to work, is this possible?

## 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

## Search All Worksheets & Go To Found Values

Aug 30, 2007

I have a workbook with a sheet for every month. I have a searchbox searching for a client and jumping to that location. The problem I am having is that it takes me to the last occurence in the workbook if there is more that one client with the search criteria. Do you have any suggestions for a searchbox that whould take me to the first occurence and give me an option to go to the next occurence in the workbook. Please see the code below that I am using currently using.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim ws As Worksheet

Dim cl As Range, rng As Range
For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets

Set rng = ws.UsedRange
With rng
Set cl = .Find(Me.TextBox1.Value, LookIn:=xlValues)

If Not cl Is Nothing Then

Application.Goto cl

## Search For Specific Text In A String And Replace

Dec 3, 2009

I have a text such as:

fdfs&s_kwcid
&dfsdaf&dsafdsf&s_kwcid=
fdsf&dasfsdf&s_kwcid=dsfasfsdf

I want to do is search for "&s_kwcid" or anything containing "&s_kwcid" and replace it with blank. So above would then read:

fdfs
sfsd
&dfsdaf&dsafdsf
fdsf&dasfsdf

I tried =IF(SUM(COUNTIF(E2,{"&s_kwcid*"}))=1,E2,"") but it didn't work. I tried auto filtering, and using contains &s_kwcid* but it didn't filter out results, but find &s_kwcid did find results for text anywhere in string, so I know the problem is there.

## Search Text String For Any List Item

Dec 1, 2011

Searching a text string on Sheet 1 to see if it contains any item in a list (on Sheet 2 Column 1) and if so return the value of Sheet 2 Column 2 next to the list item found?

It's a budget problem: Sheet 1 has my downloaded Visa statements. I want to categorise all items.

Eg Any item containing the string 'safeway' is categorised as 'General expenses'. So the list on Sheet 2 has an item called 'safeway' and in the next column 'General expenses'.

And for the item on Sheet 1 'BPAYN BUPA AUSTRALIA BPAY MBF monthly' I have an item in Sheet 2 that is simply 'BUPA' with category 'Medical expenses'.

## Search 1 Column All Worksheets & Go To Found Values

Aug 28, 2007

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.

Sub search_box()
Range("B49000").Select
Cells.Find(What:="some#", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:= _
xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _
False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
Cells.FindNext(After:=ActiveCell).Activate
End Sub

## Search Function Across Multiple Worksheets?

Apr 24, 2014

I have 6 worksheets with data. Column C of every worksheet is filled with unique Tracking Numbers.

I want to create a 7th worksheet with a search function. Users will be able to type in a Tracking Number (on cell A2), and information associated with that Tracking Number (from Columns A, D, E, F and G of worksheets 1-6) will show up beneath cell A2 on cells A4, B4, C4, D4, and E4.

## Search Multiple Worksheets For Several Keywords

May 11, 2009

I am trying to set up a worksheet which takes keywords from several cells (user populates these cells) and searches all worksheets for these keywords.

for example, i have C1:G1 set up as possible search string entry cells where the user types their text. I need a function which takes the data in whichever of these cells have been filled in (i.e. it may only be in 1 cell, 2 cells or all 5) and searches each worksheet for all cells containing ALL keywords. (as it finds each one, i will highlight the cell, but that part of the code is obviously very easy )

Currently i have this (note, i havent yet figured out how to but the k1 to k5 variables into the search string yet which is why they are set but not used):
At the moment, its not ever looking past worksheet 1 - can anyone see why? and then how to i get it to look for all entered keywords?

## Search Box Searches Multiple Worksheets

Jan 9, 2013

I love Excel and love learning new things to do in it to create some amazing number-crunching techniques. I have created a workbook with multiple worksheets [one for every month in the year]. I searched this amazing forum and succesfully implemented the search box macro to find and copy the found data on a separate worksheet.

My question is that the macro I found in the this post Creating a Search Box in Excel only searches for the data in one worksheet. How do I tell it to search for the inputted data in all worksheets?

Here is the first part of the macro. I was trying to fiddle around with the strDataShtNm but to no avail.

Code:

Sub myFind()
'Standard module code, like: Module1.
'Find my data and list found rows in report!
Dim rngData As Object
Dim strDataShtNm\$, strReportShtNm\$, strMySearch\$, strMyCell\$
Dim lngLstDatCol&, lngLstDatRow&, lngReportLstRow&, lngMyFoundCnt&

On Error GoTo myEnd
'*******************************************************************************

strDataShtNm = "Sheet2" 'This is the name of the sheet that has the data!
strReportShtNm = "Sheet1" 'This is the name of the report to sheet!

## Search For Substring Within String Of Text Which Is Exact Match?

Jan 6, 2014

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.

## Search For Text Within A String, Lookup And Then Return Item

Sep 30, 2009

I have two sheets, one of which contains film names and the other contains our tag structure for our website (which is a list of tags, their keywords and the primary parent channel they live under).

What I am trying to do is search the film titles and if any of the words match either the tag name or keywords then return the relevant channel.

Example:

Sheet 1 - Films
How To Apply Bridal Makeup
How To Fight A Donkey
How To Write Excel Formulae

Sheet 2 - Tags
Channel / Tag / Keywords
Tech - Microsoft - windows vista xp word excel
Tech - Computers - internet pc
Tech - MP3 Players - iPod Zune

So, for film 3 on Sheet 1 it would recognise the word Excel in the keyword list and return the channel Tech.

## How To Ask Formula To Search For Multiple Values Within One Search

Mar 4, 2014

I need one formula to copy and paste the checkcard data changing it from this "CHECKCARD XXXXXX5623" to "CHECKCARD 5623", but I need one formula to look for multiple known checkcard numbers. I will have more then one typically in the bank download so I need to search and copy at least two known numbers as shown below.

I am providing the formula that I am using right now, "=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("5623",B3)),RIGHT(B3,41),"")" but it only works for one checkcard number? Also I don't really need to capture the DEBIT or CREDIT that will always be at the end, it would be redundant. If it's easier to write the formula including that data that is no problem. What I want to copy and move into an adjacent cell is in red.

Here is the source data:
Row 2 - SONIC DRIVE IN#1531 AUSTIN TXDEBIT FOR CHECKCARD XXXXXX5623 DEBIT
Row 3 - JASON'S DELI # 125 Q64 AUSTIN TXDEBIT FOR CHECKCARD XXXXXX9718 DEBIT
