Sorting Columns To Align Data

Jan 16, 2012

I have to filter data in one column and have it align with data in another column. I need to do this because I have hundreds of product descriptions that I need to match up with the appropriate images. All of the image names will be like the first row (1244-?????.jpg) The problem I am running into the text data I am downloading is not matching up with the images. I usually have more images than text and sometimes I will have text that has no corresponding image.

Align Data In Columns

Oct 17, 2009

This is a pretty simple request, but i need a macro to Find Column M's Last Entry and to copy down the 3 following columns down to the value.

I need it to be dynamic in other words, The length of column M will vary depending on my file . If the macro knows Column M ends Here, then drags the boxes down starting from N3 to Q3 down to the last Entry in Column M.

Sorting Data Into Several Columns?

Aug 14, 2014

I have an issue with some data that I need to sort into several columns. Basically, I have a column that has data listed in each cell like this; A 567 T 1 D3. What I want to be able to do is sort that data into several columns. I am not sure how to do this at all. I have attached my data to be looked at. I have already started the process but manually, and I don't feel like having to do this manually as this is very time consuming considering I am trying to sort the data into ~1927 rows and 5 columns.

Sorting Data Into Columns

Aug 5, 2009

I need help with either a formula or macro for sorting data into specific columns. I need the entries under the headings Ar,Bj... to be sorted into the correct columns. To add to the problem, the data may not be exactly the same as the heading.

Attached is an simple example of a spreadsheet where the top is the original and the bottom is what I need the final outcome to be. The data is pasted from a different spreadsheet and will be changing each time.

Sorting Data That Has Blanks In Some Columns

Feb 15, 2010

This is driving me crazy. I have a sheet with 5 columns, and 13k + rows of data.

I attached an example of how its is formatted...

The problem is, in column A "DBA" and D, "Address", some of the data contain 2 rows, and others contain 3 rows.

When I try to sort by DATE, for example, it ends up splitting up the addresses alphabetically...

How can I sort this data, by any of the columns, while still keeping the ADDRESS together?

I hope this makes sense to someone because it is driving me NUTS.

Align Numbers From 2 Columns In Parent Child Manner

Apr 5, 2008

I have searched numerous times for the answer I need, but no joy yet.

I have a spread sheet that has one column (call it 1) of data with a single entry each of 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, and so on.

I have a second column (call it 2) that has multiple entries of 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, and so on, and I want to sort so that the rows wind up with the numbers in column 1 all sorted in an accending order, but I want all the same numbers in column 2 sorted to "list" next to the same number before the next number sorts. See below for a small example of what I hope to see once it sorts.
100
100
100
100
200
200
200
200
300

Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;Unfortunately the example didn't post correctly..perhaps this will work but note that the x's are in column 1 and don't exist.

Sorting And Retrieving Data Based On Two Columns?

Oct 19, 2012

I am working on a new budget spreadsheet that I am creating. I want to accurately calculate credit card expenses. As everyone who has a credit card knows, charges made this month are not due to be paid until next month. To make matters more complex, charges made from (for example) January 20 until February 19 are not due to be paid until March 20. With that in mind, I created a spreadsheet with a different tab for each month. Each tab has a place to put in all expenses. Here is an example:

date
Category
Expenses
Remarks

[Code].....

Obviously, The above example is from January. IN the February tab, I want to calculate everything in the "Expense" column that has a date in the "Date" Column before Jan 20 and where it says "Kohls - Frank" in the Category column. Of course, in the March tab, I would need to grab all of the "Kohls - Frank" expenses after Jan 20 from the January tab, and everything before Feb 20 from the February tab.

I figured out how to add up everything with the following formula: =SUMIF(Jan!A:A,("<="&DATE(2013,1,20)&E32),Jan!C:C) How can I filter on the Category tab?

Sorting Rows Of Data Into Columns With Headings

Aug 30, 2013

I have hundreds of rows of data which I need to sort into headings in a new tab.

E.g Column D has about 40 names which occur many times. Column G has 4 digit numbers which are unique.

I want to create in a new tab a column for each of these 40 names, using that name as the heading and then list the 4 digit numbers unders that heading. So if the name name "John" appears 20 times in Column D, it will get a heading in the new sheet and there will be 20 unique numbers listed below it from the data in Column G.

Fixing Line Breaks In Long CSV File So Columns Align

Mar 27, 2014

A database spits out a 42-column (A-AP) and 3,000+ row csv sheet of raw data with column headers. Frequently (due to improperly inputted information), there is a random line break in the middle of a cell, resulting in data that should be in columns Q (or R or S) - AP winding up in columns A thru Y (or Z or AA).

The only data that is consistent is in column AC.

Basically, I need to delete any blank rows and pull the incorrectly wrapped data up to complete the row where the split occurred.

Upon examination of the csv file in Word, there are instances of improperly placed paragraph marks (^p), which can easily be searched and replaced—in Word (by replacing each column A data with a unique character and the same data, deleting all paragraph marks and then replacing the unique character with a ^p.

Firstly, I'm not sure how to accomplish this same task in Excel and secondly, doing so brings the data into the proper rows but it doesn't fix the varying number of blank cells. Simply deleting blanks and shifting left doesn't work because the split often occurs in the middle of a cell which would require concatenating. But I would be ok deleting the latter part of the data so the columns align if need be.

In the attached example sheet, I highlighted the relevant data and what needs to be aligned. There is an ideal and an acceptable version in addition to the initial way the csv imports.

Sorting Multi-rows & Columns Of Data In Groups

Mar 30, 2007

I realize that the easier resolve to this request is to use Access & we are moving to that application.

I have included a worksheet as an example.

We have a 'work in progress' (WIP) worksheet that contains 12 rows of data per job. Need to know how (or if) you can sort by the "Job #:" value while maintaining the group of information necessary for each individual job.

Not a normal sort because the values aren't entered in typical side-by-side row & column format.

Find Specific Text In Multiple Rows / Columns And Align All Vertically To Same Column

Apr 25, 2013

I have a macro that converts all my PDF Purchase Orders to a text file and inserts the data/text horizontally into another document. However because the PDF's or the text within the PDF can be fomatted differently (that is on different lines etc) it therefore imports the information and it looks mis-aligned.I have attached a simple spreadsheet showing some sample text as it is imported and then below this how it should look like, all in line.

The range where the highlighted text in red is, is variable (but say nothing more than a variant of 10 columns). The text can also be Uppercase or Lowercase.So, I was wondering if there is macro code to find the "text" on various rows/columns and align it all in another column?

Vba - Chart To Align Data Required

Sep 15, 2006

I am a PhD student and have a series of coordinates for various DNA sequences. I need to generate an excel chart which will show all the sequences aligned one on top of the other, not like a stacked bar, but where no gaps are found between the bars. So that they appear as if they have fallen down as you would see with Tetris. This would end up with a bell shaped chart, rather than a messy chart. I need to do this to demonstrate which sections of the entire sequence appear more often. Can this be done using VBA or is there a way to modify a chart? I have no previous experience using VBA so I'm close to pulling my hair out.

Align X Y Data Points On Combination Chart

Following my bosses recent charting attempts involving multicoloured backgrounds, graduated bars, textured boxes, mis-matched fonts etc, etc, which frankly showed no information whatever, I was asked to simplify them.

I did so, as in the two attachments, but the response is now along the lines of "well, yes, but they aren't very exciting, are they?"

Macro To Sort And Align Employee Data In Multiple Cols To A Header Row

Jul 9, 2014

I have an issue with an export file which is produced in CSV format and needs to be aligned. I have attached a sample of what I refer to.

My Source excel file looks like:

ABC A-101 B - 202
DEF B-203 C - 100

The destination should align with the relevant column headers and place a blank if it doesn't match. Other have queried a similar thing, however my header and data and description is actually in the same cell with a dash separating them.

The output I want is:

A B C D
ABC 101 202
DEF 203 100

There are multiple row of employees with varied column headings as its dependent on what system access the user has. The headings i.e. A,B,C for example is a fixed number of headers.

In my real data set the headers represents a 3 letter system prefix e.g. ZCR,ILP etc

Sorting 4 Columns Together

Nov 6, 2007

Is there a code or some way for me to sort 4 columns together? I want to sort a list of employees and for each employee theres a column with their Lost Business, customer satisfaction, and two more columns. I want to sort all the columns at the same time so that the best employees overall will go to the top of the list and the worst ones will be at the bottom. Whenever I use the sorting feature it does each column independant of the others so everytime I sort a new column it just moves around the last one I sorted.

Sorting Columns

Apr 13, 2007

I have a spreadsheet that is populated my Concatinating data from other worksheets. Some of the results are numbers, some is data while others are blank spaces and othersare set by the concactenating default of "" when the criteria is not met. I need to sort these colums. However it seems that the default "" from the formula is not a BLANK or a ZERO or an empty cell.

Those cells will place themselves at the top of the sort. I need to eliniate them. I have copied and pasted as values but that has no effect. Ironically I can identify the cells with an if statement so what I need help with is generating a macro that will cycle thru the range of results and delete the approriate cells.

I have tried the following:

lr = Range("A1").End(xlDown).Row ' Last Row
lc = Range("A1").End(xlToRight).Column ' Last Column
For Each cell In Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(lc, lr))
cell.Select
AC = ActiveCell
If AC = "" Then Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp
Next

But this does not work as it cycles top to bottom and leaves behind 1/2 the problem cells.

Matching And Sorting With Two Columns?

Jul 23, 2013

I am trying to 'stagger sort' multiple columns, but am having some difficulties.Ex.

Say A and B are lists of part no and C is data corresponding to column B. I have:

A B C
1 2 .
2 3 ,
4 4 ;
5 7 '
8 9 "

I want:
A B C
1 _ _
2 2 .
_ 3 ,
4 4 ;
5 _ _
_ 7 '
8 _ _
_ 9 "

(the _ are just supposed to be empty place holders, without them I have formatting issues)

Is there a 'quick' way to sort them this way?I am attaching the actual file that I am working with.

Sorting Multiple Columns

Sep 8, 2008

How do I sort multiple columns at once? In other words, I have a chart that is a series of 1s and 2s, and I need all of the 1s to drop to the bottom, so that I can do a rudimentary chart in spreadsheet form. My chart has dozens of columns like so:

1 2 1 1 1 2 2 2 2
1 2 1 1 2 1 1 2 2
2 1 2 2 2 2 2 2 2
1 1 1 2 1 1 1 1 2

How do I get the entire range sorted to look like this, without having to do each column individually (hours of work)?:

2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2
1 2 1 2 2 2 2 2 2
1 1 1 1 1 1 1 2 2
1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 2
