Search For A Substring Within An Array Of Strings

May 20, 2002

I wish to search for a substring within an array of strings and just return back an indication that the substring exists withing that array.

so for instance let the substring be "rang"
and let the array be
I wish to put a single command line next to my substring and wish to search through that range and return a key code if it exists. And then I will repeat the same search for other substrings. For the moment being, I don't care too much about the number of occurences or the exact cell address where they occur. All I wish to know is whether they exist in that list or not.

So it looks to me it is like a SEARCH command but except on a range of text (Rather than a single text) with an array formula. I have tried MATCH but my case is not an exact match either.

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 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.

How To Extract Substring From String Based On Substring Length

Jan 16, 2008

(I need to do this using VBA so that it can work as an excel macro and/or a vba function in access.)

How can I extract the first occurance of any substring over a certain character length from within a string ?

eg. My string may take any of the forms given below (or something similar), how can I extract the first set of characters that is at least (say) 4 characters long ? i.e. always get the 'Phillips' out of the below...

Phillips Homes Ltd
Mr T A Phillips
TA Phillips Homes Ltd
T A Phillips Homes Ltd
T. A. Phillips Homes Ltd

The names used are only an example (Phillips could be any name whatsoever).I am familiar with Search, Len, Left, Right, Mid, Instr etc. but just can't figure this one out.

Treating String As Array And Correct Array Format For Unicode Characters?

Jul 30, 2012

in C a string is nothing more than an Array of characters ending with a null character.

in VBA this does not seem to be the case.I am trying to use the BlowFish code from David Midkiff for some encryption, however the code sometimes fails:

When encrypting a string a string of a specific length should be returned. however sometimes one of the characters of the encrypted string is a null character, and the returned encrypted string (with a embedded null character) is causing me problems. I want to check for the null character and if present redo the encryption. But how do I check for the presence of this null character in a unicode (double-byte) string?

Checking with Len(encrypted) gives the correct length (!) but trying to move each (unicode)character into an array fails when using the Mid() function past the null character in the string.

Now I can use

byteArray() = StrConv(unicodetext,vbFromUnicode)

to get the lower byte of each character into an array easily, but how do I do this for both bytes of the unicode characters?

Using an integer array does not work other than through

intArray(j) = CInt(AscW(Mid(Outp, j, 1)))

which fails on the nullstring in my encrypted text.

I have tried with variants but so far no luck. I thought if the string was entered into a variant then I could also address the variant as an array of bytes, but that does not seem to be accepted by VBA.

Extract 1st Matching Substring From Cell

Nov 26, 2008

I am trying to make a simple formula to populate a cell with the first matching substring found in a data cell (from a fixed list of substring keys).

Example of desired results:

Substring data: {X, YY, ZZ} (typically 6 to 15 values in real world use)

Data..........Calculated result..........Comment
AAX.................X........................Substring X was found in Data.

ABC.............[empty]...................None of substrings were (X, YY, ZZ were found)

XYYZZ.............X......................(only first match need be returned)

ABCZZ.............ZZ....................Substring ZZ found etc….

I am looking for something cleaner than nested if statements since there are likely to be a lot of values and different variations. The work would then be to copy the formula and populate the list of substrings to search for in the data. I tried some array formulas using search() but no luck so far.

Matching Data In An Array

Jan 18, 2008

In attempting to answer another post, I came up with this code to try to test whether data in columns "p" through "w" matched data in columns "a" through "h".

The problem is, it's acting as though everything is a match, and in my test sheet, I have some data that matches, and some that does not match.

It just highlites the whole range.

Here's the sample data:

OTHEWISE, ERROR OF JavaScript OCCUR.

And here's the

Array With Values From Cells Matching A Criteria

Oct 3, 2009

How do you load an array with values from cells matching a criteria?

I want to look for the number 1 in row 5 and put the Adjacent values in Row 2 in an array.
So here my array should have 1,3,6

Dim CountOne As Integer
CountOne = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Worksheets("Tool Administration Form").Range("B8:AE8"), "1")

Dim All As Variant
Dim rCell As Range
Dim ArrCnt As Integer
Dim lArrVar As Long
ArrVar = 0

For Each rCell In Worksheets("Tool Administration Form").Range("B8:AE8")
If rCell = 1 Then
ArrCnt = ArrCnt + 1
All = Cells(-3, 0).Value
End If
Next rCell

Loop Until ArrCnt = CountOne
I keep getting errors... I don' tknow how to fill the array properly wiht the values in the cells.

Returning Matching Value From An Array Based On A MAX Date.

Feb 25, 2010

I have an Excel spreadsheet (XP - 2007) listing Job Nos. in the first column, with several columns of Station assignments and dates.
Both planned dates and actual dates are included, adjacent to each other. The dates are not necessarily in a straight ascending or descending order. Separate arrays exist for: Plan Nametags, Actual Nametags, Plan Dates, Actual Dates.


Job No.Sta1 PlanSta1 ActSta2 PlanSta2 ActSta3 PlanSta3 Act1A10001-Feb-101-Feb-106-Feb-106-Feb-101-Mar-101A100116-Feb-1016-Feb-1019-Feb-1022-Feb-105-Mar-101A100225-Feb-1025-Feb-102-Mar-104-Mar-1010-Mar-10@
I need to capture two pieces of information for each Job No. on a daily basis:
1- The 'Planned' Station for the build, based on a match of the 'Plan' date fields to a pre-populated 'Report Date'.
I've been able to do this (using INDEX-MATCH function).
2- The 'Actual' Station location for the build, based on the Maximum 'Actual' date entry in the row for each build.
(In the example above, Job# 1A1001 would have an 'Actual' location of 'Sta2 Act'...)
I need to figure out how to accomplish step (2) above. I've made several attempts with INDEX-MATCH and LOOKUP functions, without success.

Dynamic Array Of Worksheets Matching Condition

Jun 13, 2007

im currently using a static array to select multiple sheets at once which works alongside another Sub

Sheets(Array("Group1", "Group2", "Group3", "Group4")).Select

i have a button that creates a new sheet and names it "GroupX" X being the next number, it automatically adds on the right number by itself and it works fine...
i want it my array to be dynamic so that i dont have to manually edit the array and the macro every time i add a new sheet.

i have tried things like:

Dim MyArray As Variant
Dim Shts As String

K = Sheets.Count - 4
For p = 1 To K

Shts = "Group" + p

Redim MyArray(K) As String

MyArray(K) = Shts

Next p

Using COUNTIF To Return Matching Array Values With A CONDITION

May 9, 2014

I'm having a difficult time returning COUNTIF values for a positive match between 2 columns THAT meet a certain condition. Basically I want to iterate through column A sheet 1 (ONLY for values where column B is paid) and return a count for every instance there is a match of value A sheet 1 in column A sheet 2. In other words, I'm looking to find the number of ids marked as paid from Column A sheet 1 that exist in Column A sheet 2. I don't wish to return the actual ids, just the total count.

I've tried the following but I know there's an error in iterating through Column A the way I have it:

Find Copy And Paste All Entries Matching Search String On Mac PC

Feb 8, 2014

This follows on from my previous posting [URL] ..... which produced a solution using an ActiveX Combobox that unfortunately does not work on Mac PCs!

I tried to replace the ActiveX with a Form Control Combobox but could not make it work.

So I am trying to use the alternative of "find, copy and paste" the relevant information.

As shown on the attached 140207 FINDALL test.xlsm, I need to find all records containing whatever string is entered into the "Search" cell, and copy data form three columns onto the Entry sheet.

The User will then select whichever of the entries they want to use, which will populate the relevant cells.

Problem: The following Code is not recognising any of the data in the Column being searched.

Option Explicit
Dim ws As Worksheet, i As Integer, k As Integer, z As Integer, CL, myFind, CHOICE As Range, lr As String, lrG As String,

Return Highest Value Of Column Headings With Matching Text In Array?

I have an array of data with multiple codes stored in text...

I want to set a formula in a cell to look for all instances of specific text in an array. Then compare the value of all of the column headings, which are numbered across the top of the array, which contain a match in that column and return the highest value.

Example: 10x10 array, columns 1,3, and 5 contain "text" somewhere in those columns. Formula would return 5.

Search An Array Backwards?

Nov 2, 2009

Is there a way to find the last matching row in an array? For example, I can find the first matching row in an array by using the MATCH function. Is there a way to search through the array backwards?



If I use =MATCH(10572, A2:A6,1), I will get the result "3". How can I get the result "5" (to tell me the row number of the last match)?

A more accurate example of what I am trying to do would be:


If I feed the number 2 in as my search value, I want to know the range of rows where the OrderID is less than or equal to 2. In the case above, it would be rows (assuming "OrderID" is in row 1) 2 through 4. I can get "2" back by using =MATCH(2,A2:A7,1), but I don't know how to get "4".

Hi again, I am trying to find the easiest way to repeatedly search a large matrix (300,400) for a particular value. I have used two for loops in the past but its starting to get complicated now. Is there a workaround using application.worksheets.something that I could get a true of false reply? Someone may suggest that I create a function that replys back. I am new to VB and I am not sure how to send a matrix of integers to a function (syntax).

If String Equals Value In Array?

First I tried to check if the cellval is in the array by returning a -1, 0 or 1:

If UBound(txt, cellval) = 0 Then
-> returns zero for value "h3", but also for value "3"
(where cellval the value in the cell is)
(with txt being the array containing "h3,r8,ty657", etc)

But I need only the If to be true when there is an exact match.

Sort String Array

Nov 18, 2006

I have a string (PreString) that gets its values from a procedure call (PreResult). The string consists of 4 values for each loop which I then split into the y array.

I then want to transpose the array to the worksheet for sorting.

I don't really get the transpose to work as I want to. I want every 4:th y to be printed on a new row (x). I don't really know how to use the Ubound function to get it right.

Should I make a 2 dimensional array instead ? If so, how is that made ?

Dim x As Integer, z As Integer
Dim var_Status As Integer
Dim var_Week As String
Dim var_HoursPerWeek As Integer
Dim PreString As String

i = var_StartWeekNr
j = var_RangeNumberOfWeeks
z = 0
x = 0
var_Status = 0
var_Week = ""
var_HoursPerWeek = 0
PreString = ""
