Select A Range Of Non-adjacent Cells

Jun 29, 2006

I have a series of data values in non-adjacent columns in an excel spreadsheet.

In the following example, assume the | (vertical bar) refers to the start of
a new cell:

F|45|A|30|F|15|F|10

Using the SUMIF formula, I want to add all numbers which are preceded by a
cell containing the letter F.

SUMIF(A1:G1,"F",B1:H1)

What I need to do is specify a range of every second cell in the row (starting with Cell A1) for validating they equal F, and a range of the alternating cells (starting in column B1) for the range containing the data to add. How can I specify these ranges (I can't name each cell individually as I have more than 30 cells to add up in my real life situation and the IF function allows selection of no more than 30 values)?

Select Non-adjacent Cells

May 30, 2008

I've always been able to select non-adjacent cells in spreadsheets, but today noticed that I can't. I need to be able to do so to collect data from one spreadsheet to another for my monthly accounting reports. It makes collection of specific data fast and simple. Without this function, it takes far longer to do reporting and is very un-reliable. With the function working, I click on the cell ranges which are black, leaving the cell ranges which are red alone. We use black and red to identify charges which appear or do not yet appear on our monthly VISA statement.

I select all the black charges along with their corresponding account codes, then double-check the page before copying the non-adjacent ranges to make certain that all of the charge amounts and account numbers which are black on the page are selected and no red ones; then copy and paste the data into another sheet. It often makes collection very quick and easy.

When there are lines interspersed throughout a sheet with black and red charges strewn here and there, it is very easy to select only the black data and skip the red. Doing so by copying the entire range then deleting the red is laborious, and time-consuming.

What has happened to Excel's ability to select non-adjacent cells? Today, I can't select even two separate cells, using Excel's ability to do so by holding down the CTRL key, as I have in the past.

I'm using Excel 2007, on Windows Vista 64 bit; and I've made sure that my Insert function is turned off (thought that might change things?) and my Scroll Lock is turned off (I've bumped that many times in the past and found Excel doing weird things when trying to navigate a spreadsheet with the arrow keys).

VBA Macro To Select Cells With Certain Value And Perform Action On Adjacent Cell

Mar 10, 2014

Converting old reports to usable excel format. I am having trouble using VBA to set up a looping macro that would search Column A for cells with the text string: "ACTIVITY TOTAL". If cell has that value I would like to perform text to column action on the adjacent cell (R0C1). The macro recording for the test to column settings i need is :

Selection.TextToColumns Destination:=ActiveCell, DataType:=xlDelimited, _
TextQualifier:=xlDoubleQuote, ConsecutiveDelimiter:=True, Tab:=False, _
Semicolon:=False, Comma:=False, Space:=True, Other:=False, OtherChar _
:=":", FieldInfo:=Array(Array(1, 1), Array(2, 1), Array(3, 1), Array(4, 1), Array(5, _
1), Array(6, 1), Array(7, 1)), TrailingMinusNumbers:=True

I have attached a sample of what I am currently working with. The actual file has roughly 6000 lines of data, so I would like the macro to go through all lines.

A Formula That Searches A Range And Gives The Sums Of The Adjacent Cells!??

Jun 23, 2009

I am looking for a formula that searches a range of data and then returns the sum of the numeric values in the adjacent cells. I have a calendar style spreadsheet with 2 columns for each day. In the first column it has a list of names and the second column a number.

I would like a cell to return the sum of the numeric values next to each name. All the names are entered into the columns randomly and are unorganised. The same name will appear multiple times in the range and have different numbers next to it each time. I am currently using (for example) =COUNTIF(H6:AL14,"bob") to tally up the number of "bobs" but really what i want to do is find a formula that in plain english does:

Search a range of columns and where cell = "bob" take the value of the adjacent cell (to the right) and total them up!

i have attached an image - i hope it makes sense what i'm trying to do - i would like Q3 to total up the numbers to the right of all "bobs" across all the days - so it should return 42

Search Range, Return Adjacent Cells Of Matches

Jun 21, 2007

I can solve my problem with a pivot table, and with VBA easily...however, I'm interested in knowing if this can be done with formulas (array formulas using index/match I'm assuming).

Goal: On sheet1 I have one column with products, then the column next to it will have an "Y" in it if the product is to be selected (blank if not). On sheet2 I want to create a list of the products that were selected (having the "Y"). The only thing stumping me is that I do not want spaces between the product list on sheet2...just a nice continuous list. Example:

Sheet1
cup Y
bowl Y
spoon
fork
knife Y

Sheet2

cup
bowl
knife

..not..

cup
bowl
knife

Find Median In Range And Bring Back Adjacent Cells

Jun 25, 2014

Median Indirect: I would like to find the median in a range of cells and then bring back the 2 adjacent cells

Range...............Adj Cell 1............Adj Cell 2
1.......................L1......................L2
2.......................P3......................P4
3.......................O9......................010

So the median of the range is 2, thus we would want the formulas to bring back P3 and p4

Column 1..............Column 2
P3...........................P4

Copy Non-adjacent Cells In A Row From One Spreadsheet To Adjacent Rows In Another

Jan 5, 2014

I have a workbook with 30 worksheets. Each sheet has 84 rows of data (start in 15 columns (A to O). I would like to create a summary sheet that only shows the most important data from each sheet.

The summary sheet would have 12 lines of headers and formatted crap at the top.
The Summary sheet header columns would be:

Site (A), Date (B) Health (C), Status (D), Critical (E), Task (F),
Dependencies (G), Owner (H), T-Date (I), Task Date (J), Mitigation Date (I)

The data in the sheets are not in that order, of course.

That
1. puts the name of the sheet I am copying from in column A
2. the deadline date in Column B (that date is always in C10 of each worksheet)
3. and copies Cells from Column A,B,G,H,I,O in any row in which the value in A is not "good" into columns C through H. I would like to paste those rows into the summary sheet. I have code that loops through the sheets and rows in each sheet to find the rows to copy. I can copy cell values directly from the active sheet to the summary sheet, but because I am copying a cell at a time, it takes 7 minutes. Yes I am impatient :)

Here is the code snippet where the copying is done:

Dim sh As Worksheet 'current worksheet
Dim DestSh As Worksheet 'worksheet in which to paste summary
Dim Last As Long
Dim CopyRow As Long 'row to copy
Dim LastCopyRow As Long

[Code] ........

ExitTheSub:

Application.Goto Sheets("KMARollup").Cells(1)
End Sub

I think there must be a way to use ranges to build an array of cell values and paste only once but I am lost here.

How Do You Select A Range Of Cells On Another Worksheet Using The Cells Property

Apr 19, 2007

I seem to be going round and round in circles with this, but I'm sure it should be easy.

I'm just trying to select a range of cells in Sheet2 of my workbook.
I've tried many different bits of code, including:

Dim namesTotal As Integer

namesTotal = 2500

Sheets("Sheet2").Activate
ActiveSheet.Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(namesTotal, 8)).Select

(According to the Microsoft website, this is supposed to be the way to do it?)

Can't Select Range Of Cells

Why the following code gives me an error. I have so much trouble with ranges, I use the syntax as it is prescribed. Here is the code. I will include some code lines underneath since I imagine they wont work either.

I eventually will be turning the range statements into copy and paste instead of select. At the moment I am using select to make sure the proper cells are being selected.

I am also attaching my complete workbook as well.

Select Unlocked Cells In A Range

I'm looking for a macro that only selects the unprotected cells in a range. So that I can copy a formula in these cells.

I found the below macro on the web but it will select all the unprotected cells in the worksheet. I guess this one can easily be adjusted to only select the cells in a range, but I do not know how to do this.

Code:

Sub SelectUnlockedCells()

Dim FoundCells As Range
Dim Cell As Range

Select Cells From Range That Contains Comma?

Jun 21, 2013

I have come up with this bit of code by joining in two separate sets of code that I used earlier. What I want to do is this, for a given range I need to find each cell that has a comma and once that cell is found a formula has to be applied in a cell few columns to the left.. Here is the code that I am using..

Code:
Sub Macro8()
Dim i As Long
For i = 1 To 1000

[Code]...

The sheet can be downloaded from here, I want column H to be (Col B / Col C) whenever Col A has a cell with comma in it. For this sheet col H needs to be populated 3 in places. The code above does it only for first instance.

Select Blank Cells In Range

Mar 12, 2008

I have a spreadsheet which always contains data beginning in column A and through row H. However, there may be blank cell(s) in columns B through G. Therefore, if I use

Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select

it will not take me to column H if say column d has a blank cell. The same applies to my rows which always vary.

These cells are not for user data input, but for data output only. I don't want end users to acidently delete the formulas in cetain range of cells, by entering a value in the cell, which then will write over the formula.
