Select Based On Partial String Then Delete Based On Full String?

Jun 13, 2013

Working with a scheduling report and trying ultimately to get it down to a line item report with the associate information and their earliest start and latest end for the week. Already made a lot of fixes to the formatting involving junking empty cells and trash data, but running into a road block on some of the trash data.

Here is the format of the report at this point. Names have been changed to protect the innocent.

Agent: 2366 Bacon, Kevin

Date
Start
End

[Code].....

So what I need is something that will iterate through the report...such as an while and find the cells in column A that start with "Agent:" It needs to compare that cell to a stored value to see if this "Agent:" is a repeat. If it is then it needs to delete that row and the next one and shift up. If it is not then it overwrites this "Agent:" with the previous one in the stored value and continues the while.

I know what I want to do...but not shure on the code cause I am not great at VBA.

Oh...if it matters probably need to allow for about 10k line items to iterate through...right now report is at 6k...but allow room to grow.

Generating Random Number String Based On Alphanumeric String?

Aug 14, 2014

Wondering if it is possible to generate a random 4 digit number based off an alphanumeric string?

Example;

Cell A1 has 123XVF1234
Cell A2 has 321AFW4321

In B1 I would like to have a 4-6 digit number that is generated based on the alphanumeric data in Cell A1 (and so on down the list). If that is possible, I would also need to be able to convert back the 4-6 digit number back to its original alphanumeric value

Example;

If B1 returns 643562 it would need to be able to be converted back to 123XVF1234

IF Statements Based On Text In A String

Dec 12, 2008

I want to return Y or N for each row where a certain word (lets say "Apple") appears anywhere in the reference cell. Therefore in the below example the first 3 rows contain apple (somewhere in that cell) so Y is returned. I can get it to work when apple isd the only thing in the cell but not if it appears with text before and/or after it.

ie:

A B

apple Y
apple orange Y
orange apple Y
pear N
grape N

Editing String Based On Length

Sep 1, 2009

I get all my results from a CSV file. This isnít a problem except for the first nine days of the month where excel cuts off the first 0 so 01012009 reads 1012009 and cannot be properly concatenated.

DateNameItem
1012009BobKeyboard
1012009SidMouse
1012009DaveMonitor
1012009EdMonitor
1012009AndrewKeyboard
1012009DanKeyboard
1012009BruceKeyboard

What I would like to do is have VB read the contents of the date cell and if it is less than eight characters, edit the cell by adding a zero at the beginning of the string. This needs to be a one off process for all cells. Can anyone come up with code that might make this happen?

Formula Based On Value Within Text String

Jul 23, 2014

I have been trying to work out a formula without success so far. If you look at the this text string

Code:
Depart Doncaster Depot with a Mini bus at 0649

The "Mini" word in red is the one that I am trying to work out with.

Here is the problem. The "Mini" word could be replaced with 7 other words - Walk, Artic, Dart Smart, Maxi, Smart, Staff Car, or just bus with no explanation as to what type it is.

I need a formula to look at the text string and work out which one of the above categories are included in the text and based on that gives me either W, A, Dart Smart, Mx, S, Car, and the last to be just N.

Sorting Range Based On String Variable

Jul 31, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with column headers like, "Date" "Phone number" "Name" ect., and rows of data below. Each of these rows contains data pertaining to a prospect employee, as the purpose of the spreadsheet is to keep track of job applicants. One column is used as a 'Recruiter Sign-off' area, where the recruiter who processed the application inputs their name:

Example.png

I'm trying to automate a variation of excels sort function. However, I don't want to sort 'From A to Z.' Instead, I want to have the rows of data sorted with the 'Recruiter Sign-off' column used as the sort Key, and a selected name (of one of the recruiters) used as the sort Criteria.

I already have a userform that allows the user to select a name from a listbox. When they press confirm, the name is stored in a Public String variable, (selectedRecruiter). I'd like then like to have the rows below the column headers to be sorted based on the selected name. Example: User selects the name "Jon" from a list. The application then brings all of the applicants that 'Jon' has signed off on (those rows that contain his name) to the top rows of the range.

The workbook is shared, so I cannot use tables.

I found a code that accomplished what I want, however it also leads to a horrible system crash after a few times running it (BEX crash).

Insert Row Macro Based On Text String

Nov 20, 2009

I'd like to adapt my macro so that it would insert a blank row after it detects the the first 16 characters of text as "'Closing Balance"; or it could even detect "'Closing" as the first 8 characters if it would be simpler

The Data Begins in Row 5 of Column A

My Current Macro is as below which I have adapted from another one I used

It is not working since it is detecting for the exact text "'Closing Balance" whereas the data registry would write "'Closing Balance as at 31/10/2009" , of which the "as at dd/mm/yyyy" portion would change every time a report is exported, but the first part "'Closing Balance" or even just the word "'Closing" will always be the same.

Condition Statement Based On 2nd To Last Character Of String?

Apr 10, 2012

I am trying to pull certain members loads from our global design force spreadsheet and because of the naming convention we used for our structural members the 2nd to last character is unique to what I am looking for. I am trying to get a simple condition statement that will display the load only if the 2nd to last character of the name of the element is satisfied.

For Example, if "T" is what I am looking for then :

EDT4 will be true and give me the value accordingly
D10T1 Will also be true and return me the value
D10B2 Will not be true

I know how to use the Mid() and right() function, but I need to check the 2nd from the right.

Insert New Row With String Based On Conditional Statement

Sep 6, 2008

I've been working on this project to propagate certain products through multiple categories. I chose to use excel to assign multiple categories to each product. On sheet1 I have setup products (column a) and qualifiers in the following columns (color, model, etc). What I would like to achieve is for the user to select yes or no for each category column and and if yes then have the corresponding category breadcrumb string (from sheet2) inserted into one specific column in sheet3. As the user continues to select multiple "yes" from the category columns for that single product, those additional category breadcrumbs get inserted at the end of the list in sheet3.

Find Most Common Occurring String Based On Lookup Value?

Dec 4, 2013

Find the most common occurring string in my spreadsheet based on a lookup value. For example, if my table is as follows:

Capture.PNG

- I want to calculate the most common value chosen by user 234 (A in this case), user 524 (B in this case)... and so on.
- I want to calculate the percent of the chosen value. So in the previous point, A was chosen ~67% of the time by user 234... and so on.

I'm not sure which formula to use. I am able to find the most common occurring value in column B using the formula below (which I found here), but how can I do that for a specific value, a user ID in this case?

Highlight Matching String In Listbox Based On Textbox Value

Jun 26, 2014

I thought I would get this on my own, but I digress.

I received sample code to populate a listbox from tab names of a workbook, yay!

What I have attempted is to use a user form, enter a string in a textbox and if it match's any string in the list box, then highlight.

Basically, its a simple search engine.

Sort Pivot Table Based On Partial String...

Oct 6, 2008

I've got a group of data within a pivot table that I want to be sorted based on only part of the string. For example,

Standard Kitchen
Standard Master Bath
Standard Hall Bath
Optional Kitchen
Optional Basement Bath

First they would be sorted by whether they begin with Standard or Optional. Then within those groups, they would be sorted whether they contain Kitchen anywhere in the string. So that the order would be Standard Kitchens, Standard Anything Else, Optional Kitchens, Optional Anything Else.

Change Cell Colour VBA Based On Text String?

Oct 11, 2011

I need to change the colour of a cell using VBA based on the input of a certain word. I have used teh below code but it doesn't pick up different variations of the word

Dim cell As Range
For Each cell In Range("E2:E500")
If cell.Value = "Check" Then[code]....

This code works fine (i have put it into worksheet change) when I use "Check and Mark and Chase" but some users are bound not to use capitalised first letters and on these occasions the cell colours are not changing.

How to add something to thie code above to make it work for any variation of capitalisation?

Excel 2010 :: Set Row Height Based On First 14 Characters In String?

Feb 23, 2012

Excel 2010; I am setting row heights on the basis of some parameters. I have the following statement;

If targetCell.Value = "Photo Comment: " Then
targetCell.RowHeight = 185

But what I really want is to recognize only the phrase;

"Photo Comment:" in a text string that might be much longer e.g,

"Photo Comment: The photo above depicts yata, yata.........."

So, I want to recognize the first 14 character as "Photo Comment:" and then have the row height adjust to 185. So it involves "Left" and "Len" (I'm thinkin') but the syntax is beyond me.

Returning String From One Cell Based Upon Multiple Cells

May 22, 2013

I need to return the specific text of a cell based upon the text in multiple cells.

Worksheet as follows:

Asphalt Sub:
BLDG1-Backwash 1
*BLDG1*
*Sub*
BLDG1-Backwash 1 OverEx
*BLDG2*
*Sub*

[Code].....

I have three columns thus far. I need to add another column and search all items in Column A using the criteria in Columns B and C. For instance I need to search for BLDG1-Backwash Sub: and place it into column D using the criteria in Columns B and C.

If possible, I would also like to remove both the words, BLDG1 and Sub from the result so then it only shows "Backwash".

My spreadsheet is much larger than this and I have muliple buildings I am dealing with, sometimes 30-40.

Summarize Data Based On Partial String Matches

Jun 30, 2006

I have two questions:

a. Check the code below:

Dim news1 As String, news2 As String

news1 = "new"
news2 = "polygon"
Dim countie As Integer
For buddie = 2 To b1.UsedRange.Rows.Count
'If b1. Cells(buddie, 1).Value Like "new*polygon" Then
If b1.Cells(buddie, 1).Value Like news1*news2 Then
countie = countie + 1
n1.Cells(buddie, 10).Value = "test"
End If
Next buddie

I have 2 strings, news1 and news2, i need to use the like function to check the occurance of these two strings in all the cells, and just for testing purpose, im printing 'test' it out in another excel sheet.

How do i make that work? the commented line shows what exactly i want, only that i dont want to hard code the string values.

b. If i have a value in the cell:
/new/blahblah/anycra/polygon
how do i split it so as to assign two variables to have 'new' and 'polygon'.

Vba Code To Extract And Clean Data Based On A Set String Ending

Dec 5, 2013

I would like to extract competition naps from the competition entries and then remove the string ending "nap" from the data so it can be pasted to another sheet in it's 'clean' format.

on the example sheet column B will always be the first column and the range will extend to either G,H or I (always the max range as there are always 6 to 8 races)

i would like the code to search through these columns of data and find the cell ending in 'nap' then to return this in column i, once done remove 'nap' ending from both the source cell and column i.

once done to then go through all the rows and do similar

the end result would be all naps returned into cell j and all the 'nap' endings through the data range B to I (max) to be removed to leave the horses name only.

in book 3 the first row nap was sommersturm so i have shown the outcome i would like with the nap ending in I1 removed and the horse name returned in J1 again minus 'nap' ending.

the data will always be clean with no leading/trailing/excessive spaces and always be lower case too. sometimes a space is not in between horse name and nap but it's always last 3 characters i want removed still.
