I am trying to create a search function in a database I have made. I have a userform with drop down boxes that people can choose what they want to search for. Once they have chosen and clicked the search button I want it to search only in the relevant column, i.e. search for the word in the dropdown for "engine" only in the "engine" column of the database. Once it has found the appropriate cells with the answer, I want it to delete all other rows that don't include the answer.
Once it's done this it needs to do it again for the other fields, unless they are empty. I have used 'If engine_type <> "" Then' as the starting point so that it only searches chosen fields.
I finally bought the "book" and now I am going through trying to write cleaner macros.
I am searching for a key word in a header. When I find that key word. I want to select the info in that row from the last record up to the header. Then I want to copy that info and paste it into another column.
so trying to learn from the book - I want to use the R1C1 style - but as you can see I don't quite understand yet. I want to copy and paste into column "J" for example... so i'm using 10 in the range.
write a macro that search first Row and if its finds the word "Date" then the whole column should select and change the Number formatting to Date, and if it finds the word "Time" it should change the formatting for the whole column to Time.
Below is the format of Table where it should change the formatting of Date, Start Time and End Time.
some of the code proved inflexible when applied to other columns of data. I have some VBA code that could work if it can be modified. First the code:
Sub ColorMe() Dim lRw As Long lRw = Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
The way things are right now, if a cell in the B-column contains the word "April" (and ONLY that word), the contents of the C-column's cell on the same row receives a red font color (index 3 as per the example above). The idea is to modify the code so that it searches for the word "April" in a string of text such as "Mike's April Trip" and color the contents of the cell to the right of it accordingly. Is this possible?
As an aside, conditional formatting does not work for the purpose that the cells are being colored for. It needs to remain hard-coded like in the script above, hence why I am just looking to modify something that 'sort-of' works.
Here is the current code I am using: =IF(A1="MIXED DBLs 1st Place",'Mixed Doubles'!B9,"")
What has happened is I am changing the Field Mixed DBLs to a field that could have multiple values, so I am no longer going to be able to do a test on a Hard-Coded Value.. So is there a way to only validate on the front of the word like just MIXED DBLS and nothing after that??
On the data sheet I attached you can see easily what I am trying to do:
The macro should do something like this basically:
Column A there is a entry like "L110E (CST_PRG-Wheel Loaders-E series models)"
Lets say we have 10.000 entries more or less like this.
Macro should do this: * Take first word for example in this case "L110E" and copy into column D same row. * Take second word's second part in this case only "PRG" and copy into column B same row. * Take the 3rd word between - - in this case only "Wheel Loaders" and copy into column C.
I am new to VBA and have tried to develop the code for finding a specific stock symbol (Column A) from over 4200 symbols from a downloaded csv file, copy the data in in its (specific symbol's) row (in the next 5 columns B to F) to the 3rd blank row in the master workbook (data arranged from Bottom to Top). In the Master workbook each stock symbol has a worksheet with its symbol as the tab e.g. BHP.AX is the tab or sheetname for BHP stock in the Australian Stock Exchange. The downloaded file comes from a subscribed site EODData which provides daily OHLCV (Open/High/Low/Close/Volume) data against each symbol.
My attempt is shown below and it is very primitive. It does not work! I wish to run it from the Master workbook (name:-0PortfolioASXMultipleIB.xlsm) and not from Csv Data file.
VB: Sub Macro0CopyFromCSV() 'Insert a blank row and format it in Master workbook Rows("3:3").Select Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown, CopyOrigin:=xlFormatFromLeftOrAbove
I have 10 worksheets in my workbook. The two that I'm concerned with in this post are "Main" and "Completed". If Column AA in "Main" contains the word "Complete" (which is from a drop down list) I want to copy the entire row from "Main" and paste in the "Complete" sheet without over-writting previous pasted rows.
Back in sheet "Main" I want the data in that row to be cleared with the exception of Column A as it contains a formula for sorting blanks. If I delete that row it will mess up my links on other sheets.
I went through all the forums but confused a little. In the work sheet I want Excel to find an exact word such as letter "a" in all over the work sheet (not a column name) and paste it to the destination work sheet. I am attaching an example file, can some help me to solve the problem.
Is it possible to export Excel cell contents to Word fields in a protected Word document? For example...
What code would be needed to tell Excel to open up, copy and export the contents of A2 in the active sheet of a workbook to "Field 2" in a Word document named "Report 01" and then put the contents of B2 to "Field 2" etc?
Do both applications have to be opened up at the same time or is Excel able to open up Word on its own? Will the macro be able to....
1. Automatically open up the correct Word document?
2. Look ONLY in a certain folder for the "Report 01" Word document?
Bring up a "selection" box that allows you to select the document you wish Excel to export it's data to?
3. Close and save the Word Document without any user intervention?
I am in the middle of automating a process here at work, the program takes a word, "pencil" for example, from excel. It will then open up a word document with content already in it (premade template). The program will then find all instances of a string, "placepencilhere" for example, and will replace that instance with the string from excel.
Basically I want to be able to take a variable that has a stored string value from excel and use it to replace another variable in a word document.
I tried recording a replace (ctrl+f, replace tab) macro, copying the code, and inserting it into the excel vba code.. but I get a error message. Here is what I have:
I am trying to copy the the following from MS Word and paste it in one MS Excel cell:
This is just a test. This is just a test. This is just a test. This is just a test. This is just a test. This is just a test. This is just a test. This is just a test. This is just a test. This is just a test. This is just a test. This is just a test. This is just a test. This is just a test. This is just a test. This is just a test.
I have a range of cells that contain numbers. In column a, row 3 is where the numbers start and they populate over to column f. I normally have 7 or 8 rows of numbers but this can change. The last row in the first cell has the word 'analysis' I need to copy each row, columns a to f, until I hit the word 'analysis' in the cell which will be in column a. I then need to paste these cells data into another sheet.
I am having trouble trying to write some code that will extract a word(s) from a cell that has asentence in it as can be seen below:(Class 4) (4yo+) 2m3f Heavy 10 hdles
I have tried Text to Columns but when I change from Race to race the amount of information changes and everything parts of words are chopped off and split into other cells etc. What iw ant is to be able to extract Class (Class4), the distance (2m3f) and the going (Heavy). I then want to copy that information from a worksheet called 'Meeting to a worksheet called 'Results'.
Much the same as above when a cell has:
Vinetta 16/1 or Croco Bay (IRE) 16/1
How do I copy just the 16/1 onto the worksheet called "Results".
