Search On Selected Cells?

Mar 5, 2014

I'm trying to format a new spreadsheet and was wondering if there was a way that I could stop the search function (normal Ctrl + F) looking through all cells, and only looking through column A? It has to be permanent, so I couldn't only highlight the ones I need when searching, and I can't use VBA due to security risks.Is this even possible?

VBA Find Function - Search Through Selected Range Of Cells For Key Letters

Jan 6, 2014

I am trying to code a macro that will search through a selected range of cells for key letters, for instance this cell may contain any combination of B, C, Te, Tc, RH, or LH. I would preferably like to search with capitalization being a factor but it is not a deal breaker. Below is a sample of what i have if the cell has a B, C it works for B but ignores the C i need it t o recognize both.

If InStr(1, ActiveCell.Text, "B") Then Range("O" + CStr(ActiveCell.Row)).Select
With Selection.Interior
.Pattern = xlSolid
.PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
.color = 65535
.TintAndShade = 0
.PatternTintAndShade = 0

[Code] ........

Fill Range Of Cells With Text When Listbox Option Selected - Clear When Not Selected

Jul 25, 2014

I am using this code to hide or unhide rows of text on another sheet:

Sub ProcessSheet1ChangeOnCellJ7(ByVal Target As Range)

Dim sAddress As String
Dim sValue As String

'Get the address of the cell that changed without '$' signs
sAddress = Target.Address(False, False)


When the "Not Pursuing" list box option is selected (in cell "J7" or "J8" in Sheet 1) I need to add (or over-write) "Not Pursuing" to the range of cells in column "B" (in the "Tasks" sheet), but only for that particular Goal, meaning a limited range of cells in column "B". If the "Pursuing - Show All Tasks" option is selected for a Goal then these same cells need to be blank so that the appropriate person can enter their name into the cell.

The purpose for adding "Not Pursuing" automatically to these yellow highlighted cells is that it will facilitate filtering of tasks by individual in the "Tasks" sheet..

Again I have tried several times to upload a sample file and am unable to, which I know makes it more difficult to solve. (Is there some common mistake people make? I know it's an allowed format and is very small in file size....)

Code solution can be entered directly beneath:

If Target.Value = "Not Pursuing" Then
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Tasks").Rows("29:29").EntireRow.Hidden = False
ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("Tasks").Rows("30:48").EntireRow.Hidden = True

Search Only Selected Sheets

Feb 1, 2007

I'm probably asking something very complicated in coding but I
was hoping someone could give me a macro code that would do a search
for a cell's input, but only search selected sheets.

example: "Please enter the word you are searching for here, and click the enter button:"

'here' would be cell C20. the value of cell C20 would be searched for on various
selected sheets written in the macro only.

Search For Selected Text In Column Then For Errors Along Active Row

Feb 3, 2014

Heres the code:

I'm having trouble with the With statement near the bottom for the active sheet, effectively the row search. (Would be great if the font can be changed to red as well as text "Withdrawn").

Option Explicit
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

Dim search As String 'stringy
Dim ws As Worksheet 'worksheety
Dim Answer As String 'answery
Dim r As Range 'rangey
search = Range("b7").Text 'texty
Dim cell As Range
cell = Range("4:10")

Application.EnableEvents = True

Using The =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH Function To Search Multiple Cells)

Aug 21, 2009

I' having trouble using the =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH formula to search multiple cells.

I can get it to work to search one cell (as below):

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Same",G10)),"No Change",'Aug 09 Matrix'!F10)

(In this case the respone is No Change as Cell G10 contains "Same")

However cannot get it to work for several cells. I have pasted below and highlighted the function I would like it to perform:

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Same",G10:R10)),"No Change",'Aug 09 Matrix'!F10)

Essentially the other cells in that row (G10:R10) all contain "Same", however for some reason it is identifying this as FALSE and putting in the data from the 'Aug 09 Matrix' sheet.

Add Prefix To Selected Cells

Oct 19, 2007

for a small online database I have a column that lists nationalities:

Latin American
(etc etc)

I need to add a prefix to all nationalities, for example:

Artist Nationality///French
Artist Nationality///Spanish
Artist Nationality///American
Artist Nationality///Latin American
(etc etc)

Is there a way I can select the 700 cells and do this in one shot? I can't add formulas because I will have to paste all this in text pad and then upload it.

Color Selected Cells

Feb 16, 2008

When you are on a spreadsheet and you use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move from one cell to another and you can see the cell you are on because of the lines, is there a way to have the color of those lines a different color than black? I would like to be able to arrow from one cell to another and have the lines be red or green so that I can see easier which cell I am actually on. Sometimes it can be hard to see which cell you are. Even if I could make those lines bolder to show up clearer which cell I am on.

Multiple Unwanted Cells Selected

Nov 11, 2013

I'm sure you've all encountered that amazingly annoying glitch where you click on one cell and 4 or 5 others highlight with it. F8 does not do the trick to stop it. Sometimes changing the zoom will work to get it to stop, but not always (like now).

I shouldn't have to arbitrarily change the zoom on a sheet for Excel to start working properly.

Running Macro On All Selected Cells Instead Of Just One?

Apr 17, 2014

Just started using Macros on Excel.

I recorded a Macro that would take a value of a particular cell and add that value to the selected cell in the same row. However, this macro just runs on one cell and I want it to run on the entire row.

This may seem like a trivial issue but I've been racking my brain for the last couple of days to figure it out.

Here is the VBA code of the Macro I recorded. It adds the cell value to another cell with formulas already in it as you will see below:

Sub SpreadingTest15()
' SpreadingTest15 Macro
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
"=IF(MarRF!RC9=""Trade"",IFERROR(IF(RC12=""BL"",RC13/12,INDEX('Variable Data'!R4C2:R16C17,MATCH('1410-Rev'!RC14,'Variable Data'!R4C2:R16C2,0),MATCH('1410-Rev'!R14C,'Variable Data'!R4C2:R4C17,0))*RC13),0),IF(RC14=R14C,RC13,0))+(RC35)"
End Sub

Define Range By Selected Cells

Jul 19, 2014

I am working on some code to copy data from one sheet to another, but I'm not sure if I'm going about defining the copy range correctly. I would like it so that the user can highlight a range of cells on the sheet between A3 and F last row (last row based on col C). However the user should be able to highlight rows in any column between A and F, and they could highly the records with just one column or multiple columns. It should take the row numbers of the highlighted range and use the that as the row number to extract the data from.

[Code] ........

Im currently getting runtime error 13 on 'CopyRange = Selection.Rows'

'CopyRange = Selection.Row' returns the single row number for the first cell in the selection, but i need the range of all the rows in the selection.

If any cell value within the same group = P210 or C100, then assign value "Group B"

If any cell value within the same group = N230 or N250, then assign value "Group C"

Merge The Contents Of Selected Cells

Feb 9, 2010

this is my first post in this great forum. let me start talking about what I need, I used to convert some statement from PDF to XLS format for my work purpose. sometimes I am facing a problem that some text in the statement will come in more than one row, actually I need it to come in one cell but it is coming in several rows that mean, if I want to sort or filter my data, I will lose some important data. What do I want???

I want a macro to merge the contents of selected cells and put it in the first cell of the selected cells then clear the other cells. I will use this macro for the following cases: Case 1- assume we have this data in any sheet.

D1=you? ( all without any space )

after selecting the said cells and applying this macro, the result will be:

B1=How are you? ( one space only between the content of the selected cells )

Case 2- assume we have this data in any sheet.

Clearing Selected Cells On A Form

Oct 15, 2013

I have compiled the following code with bits from here there and everywhere to clear the user entered details on a form. My problem is that I need to retain or reset to "Please Select" the cells with drop down lists.

In list form, I am trying to;

Unprotect the worksheet,
Select the cells with drop down lists and lock them,
Delete the contents of unlocked cells,
Selecting and unlocking the cells with the drop down lists ready for re-use,
Re-protect the worksheet.

(I probably should mention that my "Form" is just a formatted worksheet that looks like a form on the screen and when printed, not any sort of inbuilt Excel function that I have read about somewhere, probably here)

Sub ClearUnlockedCells()
' Clearform Macro
' Clear entered data from Form.
Dim WorkRange As Range
Dim DVRange As Range
