Select Random Row, Split Cells To Different Worksheets

Jul 26, 2009

I am trying to write a macro to:

1. Randomly selects 50 rows from 834 on "worksheet 1". There are only two cells per row.

2. Then, it clears "worksheet 2" and "worksheet 3".

3. From each selected row in "Worksheet 1", it splits the two cells and copies the results into two different worksheets, one column per sheet.

4. The rows in the two new worksheets should be congruent (i.e. same selected order from worksheet 1). Keeping the order the same is important.

This is what I have so far:

Sub Macro1()
Dim rng As Range
Dim iRow As Long
With Rows("1:834")
iRow = Fix(Rnd() * 834 + 1)
If rng Is Nothing Then
Set rng = .Rows(iRow)
Set rng = Union(rng, .Rows(iRow))
End If
Loop Until rng.Areas.Count >= 50
End With


Selection.Copy Sheets("Sheet2").Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)

End Sub

Select Random Cells In The Selection

Feb 8, 2009

I'm trying to select an x number of random selections within the selection.

Basically, lets say A1:A100 is selected, im going to have a inputbox asking how many to select, you put 10 in the inputbox, and then it randomly chooses 10 from A1:A100 and highlights them

This seems easy enough, i can do the input box and know the random function. just not sure how to set the beginning point and the ending point with Cell locations and then have it highlight those selections... a for loop I'm guessing?

Generate Random Numbers In Random Cells

Sep 18, 2009

I am working on a Random Cycle Count Generator that provides random SKU#s based on 3 separate columns of SKU listings. The user clicks a button to generate the SKU#s to cycle count for that day. What I would like to see is a date stamp in the columns next(B,D,F) to the referenced SKU listing(A,C,E) based on which SKU#s are generated. This will let me see the last date that the SKU was generated. I would also like it to automatically save after generating.

VBA Random Name Select

Dec 12, 2012

I have been thinking about a name selection tool that would automatically pick a few names for internal audit. I can handle the useform launch and other basics but here is what I see happening.

1. The empname! sheet contains a list of all the company employees, with employee number in column A, names in column B and an "X" or blank in column C.

2. The main sheet called auditmaster! contains nothing currently

3. When the code is ran the userform prompts the user to select how many individuals to audit by entering an integer in a textbox.

4. If the user selects 5 for instance, the code will run and will select 5 random employees for internal audit. It does this by first checking column A of the empname! sheet and seeing what the highest and lowest numbers are. This would create the range for the random function.

Next if there is an "X" in column C of empname! sheet, those employees numbers are excluded from the random choice.

Following this the function will select the appropriate number of individuals to audit using random again and place their names/number on the masteraudit! sheet.

The detail should be placed as the following, employee number goes to column F, name to column G. Starting with row 10. The code should also number the results 1 - however many were selected for audit in column E.

Select Cell At Random

Dec 10, 2007

I have an excel sheet attached that I would like to customise to become a random seat picker. I wanted it to select a random cell representing a seat and highlight that cell in someway (e.g. change the background colour or text colour) and display the data within in in a cell in the middle of the sheet.

I have used formula to achieve the later half of the problem but am unsure how to highlight the cell. my current solution uses f9 to refresh the data. Ideally I would like to attach the behaviour to a command button. I have attached the excell sheet and have highlighted the problems I am having.

Random Function On Select Range?

Select 30 Random Items From A List

Apr 30, 2014

I've got a list of items (formatted alphanumeric) in column G starting at row 2. I would like a cell formula that would randomly select 30 items from this column and place them in column H starting at row 2. One caveat is that the list must remain static once created. If the Rand()function is used, it recalculates whenever the worksheet is updated so that might be a problem.

Cell formula to do this? A VBA solution would be OK as well.

Select 81 Winners At Random From 5000 Entries

Nov 26, 2013

I am looking at ways to select 81 winners at random from a spreadsheet with 5000 + names on it. I have tried assigning each cell with a value between 1 and 81 and then removing the duplicates but i cant seem to get excel to pick 81 unique numbers, instead it will pick no number 1, or two number 70s.

I have managed to get a macro to pick 1 cell at random but cant get it to pick across the whole range of 5000.

Optimize Select Random Cell Value Without Duplicates Code

Apr 6, 2013

I have two worksheets. ws1 contains a large number of dates on column 3. ws3 contains around 20 dates on column 3.

I want to pick two dates randomly in ws1 that does not already exist in ws3.

Here is my working code, but it is really slow to process. How to optimize this code? Also I would like to add a function where if the macro is not able to find two random dates that aren't already in ws3 then exit loop.

Set ws1 = thisworkbook.sheets(1)
Set ws3 = thisworkbook.sheets(3)

lr = ws2.Cells.Find(What:="*", After:=[A1], SearchDirection:=xlPrevious).Row
Set rvis = ws2.Range("c2:c" & lr).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)
mynodate = 0

Split Worksheet Into Multiple Worksheets

Aug 12, 2009

This code splits a worksheet into multiple sheets (based on sales person in column A). But when it does it, it deletes the sheets and then re-creates them.

However this messes with my formulas I have linked to the split sheets and turns them into #REF! errors.

Split Date Into Multiple Worksheets Based On Data?

Mar 12, 2014

We are an office furniture company and we want to hold a master list of all stock. The columns we require are:

Product ID
Product Description
Product Grade
Product Price

The Sold column would be a YES or NO answer, and based on that I want the data to split into two additional worksheets, one with all the unsold items and one with all the sold items. So really I need to know how to split the data based on whether the line has a YES or a NO in the sold column.

The data needs to update instantly so if I change a product from unsold to sold it then comes off the current available stock tab.

I have tried to split using KuTool and ASAP Tool but they dont work. They can only split base on #of row. Between each of the group of my data, there is a empty row that split them. I want to split every single row from A:H to a new workbook. Why A:H becuz from A1:A8, the A5 is empty.

Split Worksheet, Seperated By Blank Rows, Into Several Worksheets

May 26, 2009

how to split one large worksheet into several worksheets using VBA. The only criteria I have to go on in the large worksheet is the existence of blank rows between each chunk of data I want on it's own worksheet.

Please see the attached zip file. There are 39 chunks of similar (but varying in number of rows) data that are separated by 3 blank rows, so I want my workbook be split into 39 new worksheets. My goal is to get the data into list/table format so I can work with it more easily and export into Access etc.

Also, just out of curiosity, is it possible to convert a HTM file into CSV? The attached data starts life as a HTM file that I just convert to XLS
