Search Variable Number Of Sheets To Find Partial Match On Name

Jun 19, 2014

I have a monthly report. Worksheets for each month, each row is a type of fruit (column A), and the number sold (column B). A new worksheet is added each month with the information. I also have a Summary worksheet - running total of all months: Type of Fruit (column A), Number sold (column B), and Total of all fruits - number sold. I would like a formula for the Summary worksheet - to match that fruit (column A) to any of the other worksheets - matching the fruit (column A), and bring back the number sold (column B). (note some apples are Fuji and some are Honey crisp - those would be totaled together)

ex:
Tab = Jan 14
Fuji apples3
Bananas2

Search And Match Between 2 Sheets?

Feb 27, 2014

I need sheet1 column B to match whatever is next to it in column A to the same value in sheet 2 column A and then return the value next to it in sheet 2 column b and insert it into sheet 1 column B. I have typed in 2 rows manually as example:

How To Use Index Match To Search For Value From Multiple Sheets

Sep 3, 2012

I have a set of values in column A in sheet 1 and a compilation of some of the same set of data in column A in sheet 2. Using the index match function, I have been able to list the corresponding values in column B of sheet 2 onto column B of sheet 1 (for those values which are common to both sheets - matching occurs between column A in both sheets). However, I now have some of the set of data in sheet 2 and the rest in sheet 3 (again, in column A). Is there any way of using index match to search in both sheets and index the corresponding value from column B of the sheet containing the matched value in column B of sheet 1?

I have tried this by nesting the index match functions for each sheet into two separate IF arguments but haven't had any luck. Is there a better way of doing this?

This is what I have currently tried in Cell B2 of sheet 1:

=IF(INDEX(Sheet2!\$B\$2:\$B\$3001,MATCH(A2,Sheet2!\$A\$2:\$A\$3001,FALSE),1),IF(INDEX(Sheet3!\$B\$2:\$B\$3001,MATCH(A2,Sheet3!\$A\$2:\$ A\$3001,FALSE),1)))

Excel keeps saying this formula has errors but I have no idea as to what changes I need to make to get the formula to model my situation. Then again, I'm not even sure if this is the approach I should be taking to create a formula that models my situation.

Excel 2007 :: Match Partial Text When Partial Text Is Not Exact

May 20, 2014

This is for Excel 2007,I have two sets of model numbers. One set is the full model numbers of the units we use, and the other is an abbreviated form used to lookup up certificate numbers. I need a way to match these up so I can use one set of search criteria to find out if there is a match. Here is an example of what I need to match with a partial text match:

H,AE35(6,9)36+TD and AE3563636D145C2501AP
H,RE36(6,9)36 and RE36936C145B2505AP

if I could do this with a formula that matches multiple items at the same time (ie; if A & B & C match=true) with the above model number being one of those items (certificate numbers are issued for sets, but the other model numbers are fine).If that's not possible, a one time VBA run to match all of the abbreviations at once would also work. If these items are matched up with a one time VBA, the VBA needs to account for their being more than one match for each abbreviation depending on the size of the unit.

So H,AE35(6,9)36+TD could be matched to:
AE3563636D145C2501AP
AE3563636D175C2501AP
AE3563636D210C2501AP

Search Sheets For Data Match, Paste Results

May 13, 2009

I have a worksheet named "List" with static values in columns A & B. I want to search all the other worksheets in the same workbook for the one that matches the value I entered in column B on the "List" sheet. The cell on the other worksheets with the possible match is B5. When it finds a match, I want it to take the data from cell B3 on that worksheet and paste it in Column C of the "List" sheet on the corresponding row (all rows in the "List" sheet have a different value in Column B).

In other words, when "List"b7 = worksheetb5 , then worksheetb3 is pasted to Listc7.

Macro That Searches For Partial Match Then Apply IF Statement Based On Match

Sep 21, 2013

I have a WB with multiple sheets. I have a Feed sheet that automatically pulls data from the web. I have a Scores sheet that currently has all head to head matchups each week for an entire season. So I want to check the cells on the Feed! sheet to find a partial match and if partial match exists then copy cell that contents score from feed sheet to the score sheet next to the appropriate teams name. Currently I have to manually enter all scores each week for the rest of my WB to update.

I need to look at Cell A3 (on the Feed sheet) which has "New York Jets" then search for a partial/similar match on the score Sheet (which is NY JETS, in this case). NY JETS could be in column B (rangeB2:B257) OR column D (rangeD2:D257) BUT I need to search by row, not column, then once a match is found check the cell to the immediate right and only if the cell is blank copy data from the (!feed) sheet to that blank cell on the (!scores) sheet

This is what happens if working right =

look at cell A3 on the (!feed) sheet = "New York Jets" then search (!scores) sheet Column B and Column D by row for a partial match, finds "NY JETS" as match in cell D8, if cell E8 is blank then copies cell H3 from (!feed) sheet, and pastes to cell E8 on the (!scores) sheet, if cell is not blank continues search until 1st blank cell to the right of matching cell is found (as there will be mutiple matching cells with blank cells to the right but I am only interested in the 1st blank cell found, once found and data copied the process is done and then starts over with cell A4)

Look at cell A4 (!feed)= "New England Patriots" then search (!scores) sheet Column B and Column D by row, finds "NEW ENGLAND" as match in cell B8, if cell C8 is blank then copies cell H4 (!feed) sheet, and paste to cell C8 (!scores)

Once this is done it moves on to the next cell in the next row on the (!feed) sheet, A5, to find a partial match for the data in that cell. I need to continue the search for each cell A3 to A74, and if no match is found to move on to the next cell A6... (based on the way the data is pulled in from the web there are some blank cells as well as some cells that say Game Final, this data won't be on the scores sheets in column B or D).

Text Search :: Find A Match When Date Entered

Jan 29, 2006

Here is what I have:

Column J is the date opened. Column T is the date closed. Of course,
column T will have no date if still open.
Column K and O may or may not have text.
Column AF6 has a date, mm/dd/yyyy, that is entered/changed depending on the search.

What I need is a formula in AF8 that will look at the date entered in AF6 and find a match in columns J and T. Then it will look to see if there is text in K and O. If so, populate AF8 with that text.

Find Function Where Search Criteria Isn't Exact Match For Cell Contents

Dec 19, 2011

I am new to VBA and am having difficulties in getting a find function to successfully locate search criteria within cell. When the search criteria matches exactly that of the cell contents then the code works; however should the search criteria only form part of the total cell contents (such as a seach for "the" in a cell containing "the cat sat on the mat") the code doesn't recognise it.

Essentially, I need the code to search a range for the required string and if found within a cell activate that cell and populate a combobox with the full cell contents of the activecell.offset(0,-2).

The relevant section of code attached below:

Dim role_count as range
Dim role as string

If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("Role_Count"), Role) 0 Then
Range("role_count").Select
Selection.Find(What:=Role, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:= _
xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False _
, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

Me.Controls(ComboBoxName) = ActiveCell.Offset(0, -2).Value

Find Three Largest Numbers From A Variable Starting Index Match Point

Sep 1, 2013

My data is set out in columns, where alternate columns provide day numbers for given years (we can call these type 1 columns), with adjacent columns containing values which correspond to those type 1 column day numbers (we can call these type 2 columns). There are about a hundred columns in total (50 of each type). I would like to get excel to return the three largest numbers within each type 2 column, but I want to exclude data within the type 2 column above the point which is adjacent to a specific (varying) day number in the type 1 column. The location of this point varies for all the type 1 columns, according to a third row of numbers (the look up start point), which are currently listed below the dataset in every type 1 column. So, for the type 1 column "year 1", I would want Excel to ignore the values 0 and 1, which are listed next to day numbers 78 and 79, and begin looking for the three largest values down the column starting from the value which is adjacent to 81 (which is a 2). In type 1 column "year 2", excel would start looking for the largest values from the cell adjacent to 78, so it would ignore the 18 at the top of the column,and would return 2 and 12. And so on.

Search Multiple Sheets Within Report And Then Find Average Of Result?

Jun 6, 2014

Average.xlsxHi

I have changed the attachment to use CSV's

I am trying to create a report that I can enter the codes I am looking for and the formula will search the sheets within the report and once the results are found then find the average of those results.

What I am trying to do is search the codes from Sheet 1 under Outlet and ESA(in Blue) in sheet A,B and C. The problem is the ESA code seen in column I of A,B,C is only used when column L is empty in A,B,C.

Once the relevant codes are found I then need to look for the KPI's seen in sheet 1 B4, B6 and B8, they can be found in A,B,C in column R. then the result comes from column S in A,B or C.

Once the result is found for each code I want to find the average of them, with the answer to populate in yellow in sheet 1

I want the formula to be able to handle more or less codes as well as adjust the formula so I can add more sheets(possible D,E,F,G etc)

Macro To Print A Variable Number Of Multiple Sheets

Aug 25, 2010

I am trying to build a macro to work with a template file.

The template file has set sheet numbers and names (with one exception, see 4) below).

There are close to 40 sheets in all.
Some sheets are never printed.
Some sheets are always printed.
Many sheets are printed only if they are used.
Most of the sheets are 'break out' sheets and a variable number of them will be used.

So... Here is what I'm trying to accomplish.

1) Always print Sheet4(Overview1)
2) Always print Sheet6(Overview2)
3) Print Sheets 11 thru 40 IF value in cell G50 on these sheets is > 0. Note that this cell has a name (Total) and I would like to reference the name if possible. (It could happen that further evolution of the Workbook moves the cell up or down a row.)
4) Print Sheet38(Data Sort) IF it exists. Otherwise, print Sheet1(Data).
If the information on the Data sheet is limited (eg only 1 or 2 pages), we print it off directly. If the information is more extensive, we copy it to a new sheet and sort it (Data Sort).

I can achieve 1) and 2). I'm not quite sure how to go about 3) as I'm still not very good with macro loops. 4) I haven't tackled yet.

VBA Partial String Extraction From Variable?

Feb 12, 2013

I have a comment that I'm putting into a variable for the purpose of obtaining the persons name.

Cell C3 (in this example) just contains their employee number, but it's comment contains...

Tech ID: 123456
Name: John Doe

The Tech ID is variable from 3 chars to 6 chars and obviously the name is size is also variable. The end result will be a variable with just the persons first and last name extracted from the comment.

Code:
Dim mycmt As String
Dim techname As String
mycmt = Sheets("tech").Cells(3, "C").Comment.Text
techname = Right(mycmt, BIG-OLE-BALL-OF-CONFUSION)
MsgBox techname

My 2nd question. This is the 3rd time in recent days that I've needed a partial string and Mid, Left, Right, Len, Find just boggles my mind.

Find Row Number With Two Column Match

Jun 14, 2007

I'm trying to do something similar to the Vlookup function (or Index/Match method) but with two or more parameters to match instead of just one. I want to returnn the Row where two columns match the input parameters. Using Vlookup is a problem because it only returns the first one.

Is the standard method to us Vlookup for one parameter, then check the second and if it doesn't match reduce the search field, find the next and check the second again etc? That would work but it would be much simpler if there's a 2 parameter function.
