Specific Cells Are Formatted To Start With A Capital Letter

Is there any way of writing a macro so that specific cells are formatted to start with a capital letter and end with a full stop. Can you also write a macro to automatically spell check specific cells?

How To Delete Specific Signs Or Letter At The END Of A Column
I need a macro, which removes spaces, symbols, letters, numbers or combination of them from the end of all cells in a column. The symbols should be chosen before the macro starts its work.

For example:

Before running the first macro:

Column A

After running the macro the end of the cells should be cleaned from chosen symbols, spaces or signes. (in our example if a cell ends with sign ";" then these signes should be deleted).

Column A

Find And Replace A Specific Letter/number Combination
I have a column of references I wish to standardize. Contained within a general text description there is also an order-specific reference number, which is not relevant for my purposes. I wish to find all of these numbers and replace them with nothing (i.e. retain the rest of the description).

The reference numbers are always in the format "P#####/##". Unfortunately these references are in the middle of the text field, not at the start or end, so I can't use a LEFT or RIGHT formula to delete them.

Once these reference numbers have been deleted I will then be able to filter for unique records only. When I do this at the moment the filtering has no effect due to these specific reference numbers.

Updating Only Cells Formatted As Currency
I am trying to write some code that will loop through the workbook (selecting all cells formatted as currency), updating the cell value and rounding to 2 decimal places. The updated price must be rounded as these prices are used in calculations.
The prices are not in a contiguous range and are in different cells on each sheet, but all within the range (“B1:V200”)
I need the user to enter the required increase I,e 1.05 (5%) in Price update sheet, cell “F6”, then run the code from this sheet (which will be the only sheet I do not want to run the code on, which will be the active Sheet)
This is the code I have so far
I don’t know if it will work yet as it errors out (Type mismatch) on this line.
cell = cell.Value * Sheets("PriceUpdate").Range("F6").Value

Sub UpdatePrices2()

For Each Ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
If Ws.Name ActiveSheet.Name Then
For Each cell In Ws.Range("B1:V200")
If cell.NumberFormat = "$#,##0.00" Then
cell = cell.Value * Sheets("PriceUpdate").Range("F6").Value
cell = WorksheetFunction.Round(cell, 2)
End If
Next cell
End If
Next Ws
End Sub

Vb Code To Find Formatted Cells
I currently have a spreadsheet that i am using to track invoice pages when I receive them. I have added a conditional format on the worksheet that turns the Date red when each invoice is due and i manually shade each cell grey when the invoice is received, however as i have many invoices due on the spreadsheet its a bit dificult to track all of them... i have been told that a VB code will help. (I am new to this)...

I want to put a Command button on the spreadsheet that will take me to the next cell that has the text highlighted as red and the background color is white i.e not shaded.

Conditionally Formatted Cells Which Turn The Text In Them To Red If The Value Is Less Than 40
I have a series of conditionally formatted cells which turn the text in them to red if the value is less than 40. This works fine.

Occasionally however a value of less than 40 will need to be entered along with the letter 'v'.

ie. 39v

I'd still like this to be coloured red, but it's obviously coming out as black.

Is there a way to sort this out?

edited to add : Im actually using a separate cell to enter the value 40 (as the value can change).

Nested If Statement Using Time Formatted Cells
I am trying to build an if statement to test variables that are in time format and then perform a calculation.

I was able to get an example working if I convert the start times to integers rather than time values. However, the data won't be provided to me as integers.

So, I need a nested if statement (using "and") that will test for two situations using cells in time format or I need to write a macro to convert the time data to integer format. I've been working on the former most of the day and have hit a brick wall.

Percentage Of Cells That Start With X If Corresponding Cells Have Data
I need to calculate the percentage of cells in one column that have data in them compared to those that do not. This is easy enough to do by itself but here's where it gets tricky for me. I need this percentage calculated only when cells in a different column contain data.

Here's the specifics. All of the row and column references are exactly what I'm looking to have in my worksheet. If A5:A200 contain any value then I want to know the % of the cells in F5:F200 that have a value in them compared to the same number in F5:F200 that contain no value. I would like the answer to show up in B2.

Part of the issue is that cells A5:A200 already have a formula in them so I think that would count as a value. The one thing that might help is the fact that A5:A200 values that I'm looking for ALWAYS start with TN so that could be used as the search function. The reason why I need to base it on a value in A5:A200 is that the sheet is blank until I enter data in the rows. I can't have the blank rows below the last data that I've entered on the sheet count towards the percentage that I'm looking for.

Basically it's a sheet that I enter installations and service calls on. The information always has a TN# associated with it. Which through a formula is automatically populated in the same row in the A column. I track the installation or service call and when it's completed I enter a completion date in the F column in the same row.

I am trying to be able to keep track of the percentage of jobs completed (completion date entered in column F) compared to incomplete (cells in column F that have no completion date) but it has to only look at rows that actually have information entered in them which I think should be done by column A. column D5:D200 is where I enter the main information and there is no formula entered in the cells in column D so if it's easier to base it on that column then that's fine.

Macro To Copy Specific Cells From Row From Source & Stop When Next Row Cell = Specific Value
I have a protected template and unprotected source worksheets - - - what I would like to happen is for the macro to start and if the source worksheet cell B3 equals "Report Total" then stop - otherwise copy template worksheet then copy 6 specific cells from the source to paste values to specific cells on the newly created worksheet (B_ to C7, D_ to I7, E_ to C9, F_ to K9, A_ to C11, M_ to K11 and then K13=F13-30)

After that then start all over again unless the next row’s cell (B4, B5, B6, . . .) is "Report Total" then stop - - - the row count could be from one to a couple hundred.

Here is what I have so far but I know that with each copy the name will change and as it goes down the source file each row will change and I also need help with that.

Sheets("ee template").Copy After:=Sheets(3)
ActiveCell.Offset(0, -11).Range("A1").Select

Specific Cells Populate With Specific Numbers When A Value Within A Range Is Entered
Here is what i am trying to achieve. If the date 2/20/2010 is located at F53 & the cell next to it at H53 is populated with a number between 1 & 16, then i want the cell at J11 (42 rows further up) to auto populate with the number 1. When this occurs the cells beneath this, from J12 to J52 should also auto populate with the with consecutive numbers from 2 to 42. Would also like to see the cells with numbers 1 to 28, automatically format to orange & the cells containing numbers 29 to 42 automatically format to yellow. I plan to have this condition repeat several times later in the year, at dates that are to be decided. When these dates are decided i want to be able to enter a number from 1 to 16 & next to the date & all of the above automatically occurs.

Using ' In Cells: Add A ' To The Start
I currently have a number of spreadsheets with number data in it. I need to import it into a third party program. Unfortunately when this program imports it it counts numbers such as 1 as 1.0. This third party program says the only way around this is to put a ' before the numbers and this seems to fix the problem. My problem is that I have so much data I cannot go through ever cell and add a ' to the start. IS there a quick way to add ' to the start of certain cells?

Return Column Letter Based On The Letter In A Cell.
For the below formula is it possible to replace the B's (column location) with a cell Say Z146 which contains the letter B (or a number if thats easier and someone can tell me the numbers for each column).

When the formula is dragged into the next cell (down) it takes its column reference from Z147 and then my life becomes so much easier.

Use Cells For Start & End Formula Reference
I'm using this formula (in Cells D4:D10) to tabulate hours being spent on various testing activity categories (N,O,R,E,U,A,D). Is there a method I can use to permit me to change the range of cells being tabulated using Named Ranges or some sort of substitution?

= SUMIF($C$15:$C$89,C4,OFFSET($C$15:$C$89,0,4))

for example I would like to use the value I present in cell A2 as the starting point (for the range) & B2 as the end point (for the range) of cells being evaluated. In other words the improved formula would look like this.

=SUMIF(A2:B2,C4,OFFSET(A2:B2,0,4)) -or something like that-

Fill Number Series Based On Start / Stop Of 2 Cells
I have a excel sheet of data numbers which blongs a packet of inventory where i found number series like this:

I have to draw this onto a series like 2101200 then 2101201 then 2010202 etc.
but some time these numbers are in qty 30000 or more. I have questions

1- If any macro colud fill series suppose if write number in A2 and qty in B2 so it reads the qty of b2 and fill the series in A. If i write 1 in A2 and write 50 in B2 so the series should be auto fill 1 to 50.

My Second question is opposit of my above question.

2- if i have different number series in column a and i want them to be as start number in column b and end number in column c and qty in column d based like mentioned below example.

Forcing Cells To ALWAYS Find MIN And MAXIMUM Values From A Specific Range Of Cells
I'm working on a project for my company. We make plastic tanks and for quality control we want to start recording the thickness of the tanks in different areas/zones of each tank.

Attached to this message is an Excel sheet that I've been working on. From "Sheet 1", it records inputted thicknesses into WorkSheet "1098". On the top of "1098", it shows all of the recordings, and just below that are the "10 Most Recent Entries".

Right below the "10 Most Recent Entries", there are formulas to calculate the Min and Max Values. Whenever a new entry is recorded, the selected cells for the Min and Max formulas change. Is there a way to force the cells to always stay the same?

Inserting Formatted Row
I'm working with a line of code I can't seem to get right. I've got this string that will put breaks in, but I've realized it would make my life easier if the code, along with inserting a break, then inserted a formatted gray divider, it would make it easier. Here's what I have:

Sub BreakSections()
'This macro breaks the new data on sheets into their individual groups, inserting a blank line_
'which will need to be filled with a gray dividing line
Dim i As Long, j As Long
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
With Sheets("Contract Manufacturers")
. Cells.UnMerge
i = .UsedRange.Rows.Count
End With
For j = i To 2 Step -1
If Not IsEmpty(Cells(j, 5)) And Cells(j + 1, 5) <> Cells(j, 5) Then Rows(j + 1).Insert
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

I've tried then to put this code in after the Insert:

Range(ActiveCell, Range("AJ" & ActiveCell.Row)).Select

and then the formatting code.....

But I end up getting a whole mess of gray rows, displacing a lot of data. Is it possible to do these things together, or I should write another macro that just looks for the blank spots? It seems like it would be easier to do it all at once.

The value "B" is put into row A2. A2 and C2 cell colours change to orange
etc. (not sure how many colours yet)

I sort of have a script set up, but there are certain things I dont know how to do. Like target the specific cells that need colouring.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Column = 0 Then Exit Sub
Select Case Target.Value
Case "A"
Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 1
Case "B"
Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 2
Case "C"
Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 3
Case Else
