Searching For Text Within Worksheet And Selecting The Cell
Feb 17, 2014
I'm using a command button (p1) within Private Sub P1_Click()
It pulls the activecell as a string (for example $A$1) using a variable called CurrCell, I then want to search this string (currCell) within the worksheet "DATA" and select the cell 3 to the right of it, so that I can change the value.
I am trying to search through an excel worksheet using the code below. I have a Form containg a text boxes and a command button (SearchTxt, FindCmd). The VBA program is able to search through XL but (1) It does not set the next value or text in a the worksheet active
(2) It only finds a value or text as an entire cell and not as a set of characters in a cell.
I tried to use Cells.Find method that solves the above problems, but i get an error message-Object variable not set (91) .
Private Sub FindCmd_Click() Dim Rng1 As Variant
If SearchTxt.Text = "" Then MsgBox "Please enter Vendor Number.", vbOKOnly, "Error" End If
Set Rng1 = Range("A1:F10000").Find(what:=SearchTxt.Text, Lookat:=xlWhole, _ LookIn:=xlValues, SearchDirection:=xlNext) If Rng1 Is Nothing Then MsgBox "Cannot Find" & " " & SearchTxt.Text & ".", vbOKOnly, "Sorry" Else Rng1.Activate
I have a cell that is populated by clicking a button which pulls info from an external source over which I have no control. I need to confirm the selection made by the user contains one of four quarterly values: Mar, Jun, Sep or Dec. I have this but wanted to know if there is a better alternative or a way to shorten the code.
Code: If InStr(1, UCase(celltxt), "MAR") Or InStr(1, UCase(celltxt), "JUN") _ Or InStr(1, UCase(celltxt), "SEP") Or InStr(1, UCase(celltxt), "DEC") Then
I am trying to automatically select data from a different sheet to fill data in a cell based on two other cells. I've attached a simplified version of what I'm trying to do (with detailed explanations). I hope it has enough info to get my point across.
I posted this in the "programming" forum because I'm pretty sure I will need to use vba in some form or fashion to get this to work. I am more familiar with access than excel, so I may be missing some easier way to make excel do this.
I have dropdown list on E1=Round1, Round2, Round3. I have select Round1 and enter value in Cell A2,A3,A4.....A20. / Select Round2 and type values in cell A2,A3,A4.....A20. I want to copy these values to another worksheet and retrieve again when selecting Round "x"
I have got a UserForm to search data from worksheet and show it in userform.
In my search userform, the data is searched by first selecting " Year " and then " Batch Number " (Two Batches runs in a Year) so I filled combo boxes with "Batch 1" and "Batch 2"
for example "Year 2013 " would have "Batch 1 and Batch 2" "Year 2014" would have "Batch 1 and Batch 2"
In my worksheet, it has Data for "Year 2013" and data for "Year 2014" has not yet been inserted.
The Problem is that when In the Userform I select " Year 2013 " and select Batch 1 or 2 it shows data in list box and in textboxes.
But when I select "Year 2014" and select "Batch 1" or "Batch 2" it gives error. I know there is no data for "Year 2014" yet in the worksheet, but I want it should not give error in vba coding, But It should display MsgBox "No record found"
I have attached worksheet and userform. Book A1 (1).xlsm
I have a list of six digit codes and I want to use these to populate a listbox based on the selection of a value in an existing listbox.
I have managed the following code by osmosis from various places:
Private Sub ListBox1_Click()
Dim Cell As Range Dim Test As New Collection Dim Item Dim i As String
So what I'm trying (and failing) to do is add a clause that will increase i by one, add that to the collection "Test" and then add one again etc., etc.; until it reaches the maximum value for i in the list - in this case 187410 - but some codes run into the 20s. Other cases will give a different value for i.
I have doc with app 1000 rows of data, one col being product description. I want to simply search the entire description column for a particular string of characters and enter a 1 in a new adjacent column where there is a match. Where there is no match, I want a 0 or a blank.
I am working on a project that I feel should be relatively simple but I seem to be stuck. My Goal: To add information to specific rows of data in the worksheet. I want to use a user form, and eliminate as much typing for the user as possible. I have already designed my user form, and written the code to identify the row in which I want to edit. Nonetheless, I do not know how to code the insertion of the new data. The data I want to add will be in empty cells at the end(right) of the data table.
I have attached a portion of my data set.InsertQuote.jpg
Here is where I am. The words in red are just colloquial words that I cannot seem to put into code.
Private Sub CmdInsert_Click() Dim Company As String Dim PartNumber As Variant Dim Condition As String
I have been searching the boards long and hard for this solution and have yet to find that applies fully. Every day I need to search through 20 worksheets for transactions occurring on a specific date and copy the row onto a new worksheet. I would like to run a macro that would allow me to search for a specific transaction date in column C of each worksheet and if the date matches it will copy the entire row to a new worksheet.
The issue I am having is that the transaction lists are a running sum of all the transactions for each account. Therefore, the range that the macro needs to search will change daily as well. Furthermore, the date that I would be searching for could potentially appear in column A or B but I only want the row if the date matches that of column C. Also, on some sheets there may not be a transaction at all.
I want to search a longer text field for a shorter string that may be within it. However, I want to do this for multiple short strings.
PhraseHidden word Please search the text for the hidden message: Blue The hidden word, Green, may be at any point And the word may be different lengths like Yellow
I have a table of the hidden words (Blue, Green, Yellow, Pink)
I know I could use search to find one word, but is there a way to look for multiple words, and return the value of which one it finds? I have many hidden words (and the list is dynamic) so I don't want to just split into multiple searches.
I have a column that is filled with text of varying lengths and I'd like to search through each cell in that column looking for a specific word or words. Unfortunately the length of the text varys greatly between each cell and there is very little uniformity so I need to be able to search through the entire entry in each cell and then highlight that row if a specific word or words are found.
I'd also like to be able to add a number "1" in another column on the same row if the search finds a word or words. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If the cell only contains the exact word or string I'm looking for then it's easy but I can't figure out how to search through text in a cell that contains more than I'm looking for.
example: Lets say I'm loooking for "caught fire" column Q contains: 1 "The computer caught fire after several hours" 2 "A house on the hill caught fire"
If "caught fire" exists in the cell being checked, then highlight the row and put a 1 in a specific column, lets say J.
field B7 b7 ; field a8 @latestdate("PCP2EHSEAAAAh", jEnd); field b8 @if(a8 <jStart, @latest("PCP2EHSEAAAAh", jEnd), @avg("PCP2EHSEAAAAh", jStart, jEnd)); --------------------------------------------------------
I want to look through this text and copy out any 13 character codes that are present (e.g. "PCPACIMTAAABl" ,2 "PCP2EHSEAAAAh").
These codes all share the following characteristics,
1) they are all 13 characters in length 2) the last character in the code is always either a "l", "h" or a "c". 3) they contrain no spaces 4) the first 12 characters are always in CAPS (followed by a lower "l", "h" or a "c".
I have very large spread sheet with alot of data. My goal in this is to create a seperate simplier spread sheet with some basic information to work with day to day chasing.
My spread sheet will consist of 1 work book but to pages page 1 the main with all the info page 2 the simplified version.
The first column in the first page consists of company names. The first column in the second page is also company names. What I want to do on the second page is take certain pieces of data from page 1 on page 2 as well.
So for example page 2 column 1 will have company name and column 2 will have certificate number. On page 1 the certificate number is column 16
What I would like is for page2 to column 2 to do is search for page 2 column 1 text in page 1 and input the value of page 1 column 16.
I receive a spreadsheet with over 400 lines of data every month. One row (J) contains information from companies with account details. The problem is that the info uses different formats, so the data strings within the cells can be quite long (sometimes over 100 characters, including spaces, dashes and slashes). The one identifier within each data string is a name, usually somewhere in the middle.
So for example a reference to JOHN SMITH might be "123456-01-smith/john-01/01/10-London-Edinburgh" or "2010-01-01-123456/SMITHJOHNMR/123456". I have a list of names (Column Y) and what I need is some way (probably VBA) for Excel to look down the list of references and compare them to the list of names, and if one of the names appears anywhere with in a text string, to put the name in column K. So if 4546/JohnSmith-01/08/13 or Leeds-London-123SmithJohn789 appears, put John Smith in column K, if 0123-MrFredBlogs-0321-5 appears, put Fred Bolggs in column K.
I wrote some code which has compiled a LOT of text files telling me what computers have licence for certain software.
The name of the txt file is the computer name and data within is simple: -------------------- Audit of GQL license Audit of Visio license Audit of Frontpage license Audit of Project license Audit of Visual .NET license Audit of Word (Office) licenses Found Office -------------------- as we can see here this computer has 1 licence for OFFICE. If the string "FOUND" is found then i want to be able to paste the licence name in a spreadsheet and in the next cell underneath paste the filename it was found in the e.g.
WORD Comp2, comp3, comp4, comp5....and so on......
The easiest way of explaining what I'm after is to say, I have letters of the alphabet, in their own cells, and I want to find them by way of a search. I don't mind how this is done, but it would be good if for example you entered A, C and E, any cells containing those letters changed, maybe became bold, or the cell filled with colour.
The main worksheet is for buttons to select emergency type and what group should be notified. Subsequent sheets will have different sets of contacts - Col A= Name, Col B = email address, Col C = Yes/No indicator.
The basic code works great as long as the names are on the primary worksheet. When I try to point the code to a different worksheet, the result displayed in the MSGBOX is null. I did this by putting "Worksheets(Sheet2)." in front of "Columns("B")." I double checked the sheet name.
I have a macro that my coworker runs weekly to update info. The macro depends on data in a workbook that comes from another source who arbitrarily decides to rename things. I put into my code a 3 situation scenario.
1. If the sheet name = what it is supposed to then activate it 2. Else If the sheet name contains the word "Pivot" then activate it 3. Else load a userform that lists the worsheets in the workbook and allows the user to select the proper sheet.
The code I have is below. It works until I introduce the 3rd option. Is "Else" not the proper syntax here? Because when I run it, it jumps straight to the "Else" statement and loads the userform even if the sheet is named correctly or contains "Pivot" in its name.
Code: Sub FindPiv() Dim strWSName As String Dim s As Worksheet For Each s In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
I have about 2000 rows of text. Each row is a short write up about prospective new business. There is a reference to a projected dollar amount Within 'MOST' of the write-ups. In order to generate a report about the potential dollars being projected, I need to find an easy way to extract the dollar amount from the text.
In most cases, the projected dollar amounts are preceded by "FY2014" then a "$". However, there are a handful of cases where there is no FY2014, but some variation of the year indicator. Most of the dollar amount entries are written is short text - FY2014 - $5k, 2014 $15k. While some others are written out - FY2014 - $ - $20,000. In still other cases, within the writeup reference is made to the amount of product projected to be shipped by using the dollar symbols. For example - Estimated ship totals $$ for FY2014 = $5k. I've tried writing some formulas, but as in the last example - the first dollar signs are recognized rather than the dollar sign immediately before the value.
Sample data - Estimated ship totals $$ for FY2014 = $5K New Customer Prospect 4/9/2012 Customer has still not decided if he
2014 $15K Funco 4/7/14 working on the program for the demo ...
Over 130 samples tested with about 90% accuracy. FY2014 Ship $$ = $20,000 at least. Setter Line has 7 plants ...
I would like to select all cells in column A that begin with the text "SP". Some cells will be contiguous but others will not. For instance in one case, I would like the macro to select cells with the text "SP" which would result in cells A1, A2, A3, A10, A15 being selected. I am working on building a macro that will then do other things to these cells/rows so this is the first step.
The below code will select the first cell with "SP". How would I alter this code to only search Column A and select multiple cells? or totally different code.
Code: Sub test() Dim r As RangeSet r = Cells.Find(what:="SP", LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole) If Not r Is Nothing Then r.Select End Sub
I suspect this is extremely basic however how do I do the following in VBA? I have dataset with a column having a row of numbers as: 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, etc. What I want to do is copy some information designated by the first 1 then the first 2 then the first 3 to another worksheet leaving the other data. How do I selectively choose the first of the 1, 2 and 3 etc.
