Can some correct my code. I want to convert my cell content to text. for example if i have column B with neumeric values (199234) i want to convert this to text and put only the text value (no formula after conversion) in the same cell.

Below is my code, much appriciated if you can

Sub format()
Dim rows As Integer
Dim temp1, gtxt As String
Set sh = ActiveSheet
Set xrow = Range("a1:b1", Range("F1").End(xlDown))

For a = 2 To rows

ActiveCell.Formula = "=Text(temp1, 0)"
Cells(a, "B").PasteSpecial.Value

Search Using Cell Content/Text
need to do a search based on the contents of a cell, but this cell wil change from minute to minute, so the result of that search will obviously differ each time. So far, the relevant line of macro/VBA code is only searching for what was in the cell at the initial time of recording the macro, for example:

Cells.Find(What:="Allen", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:= _
xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False _
, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
Application.CutCopyMode = False

...searches for "Allen" each time, no matter what the contents of the cell which contained "Allen" initially, is now.

On Cell Selection, In Named Range, Clear Content Or Add Text If Empty
I wrote some code that toggles bewtweeen the word "Yes" and the function clearcontents.

What it does not do, is if you click on cell A1 and change it's contents and you click on the same cell again it does nothing. You need to click on another cell say A2 before you can go and change A1 again.

My code is as follows:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)

If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("Documents")) Is Nothing Then
On Error Resume Next
Application.EnableEvents = False
If IsEmpty(Target) Then
Target.Value = "Yes"
End If
Application.EnableEvents = True
On Error Goto 0
End If

End Sub

Read Cell Content & ADD Content + Font Properties *SOLVE
I use this to read cell content, add some text/characters (ie. [ and ]) and change the properties of the complete cell

Worksheets("DVD Lijssie").Activate
If ActiveCell.Value 0 Then ' Change all in to ... ... ...
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = ActiveCell.Value & " " & "]" & " " & "["
With ActiveCell.Font
.Name = "Arial Narrow"
.Size = 8
.ColorIndex = 16
End With
End If
End Sub
HOW can I change this vba-code so it leave's the content of the cell like it is and add some content with the use of let's say TexBox1 and ONLY use different font properties for the newely added content?

Convert Cell Reference Text To Cell Formula
I am wanting to convert a cell reference text
to an actual cell reference

Manually I can go through each cell and click F2 + Enter and Excel automatically changes it.

I have tried recording a macro whereby I click through each cell with F2 + Enter but the VBA writes the actual formula "=$A$1" rather than the process. This does not work as the cell reference is variable.

I'm NOT wanting an external cell to convert it for me
because I am wanting to copy the answer to another independent spreadsheet

I'm NOT wanting to paste values
i.e. return the answer from cell $A$1
because I want the cell reference to remain within the cell.

Change Cell Color Based On Cell Content
I have a chart full of different names which I need to separate them by color when a specific entry is found in a Cell. For example the list has the store name "ZELLERS" + its branch number. (ex. ZELLERS #276 PL or ZELLERS #295 SL and so on). I would like to modify the below code so that It only check for the name ZELLERS and not the branch number. If it finds ZELLERS in any cell In the Range of C1:C500 then color it Red.

Below Code does that but I have to write the exact name as it appears in the cell otherwise it wont find it for me. Is there any way to resolve the issue? I am not an Excel Programmer but Only an Excel user.

Set r = Range("C1:C500")
If Intersect(Target, r) Is Nothing Then

Copy Next Cell Content
Cell A1 needs to contain the contents of A3 without the user having to go and type the entry in each time the next cell along changes.

For example, let's say that last week 1.81 was typed in A2. The user then had to go in to A1 and also type 1.81. This week 1.83 has been entered in A3 so the user will manually have to go in to A1 and type 1.83. Next week when something is entered in A4, the contents of A1 will again need to match the contents of A4 and so on for the next 52 weeks. We'd like a formula in A1 that automatically shows the contents of the next cell along as soon as the content exceeds Zero.

A1 A2 A3 A4 etc
1.81 1.81 1.83 0.00

Determine Cell Content By Other Cell Contents
I am trying to write an "IF" scenerio.

I want to be able to control what is put in a cell based what is placed in another cell.

For example.

I want to be able to only enter a credit/debit in B1 based by what I type in A1.

If any cell in column A is any of these numbers (41,47,48,49,50,51,52,60,61,65,68,63,67,69) then any number entered in a cell in column B can only be a positive number. If any cell in column A is any of these numbers (40,42,43,44,45,46,52,53,55,56,57,64,62,66) then any number entered in a cell in column B must be a negative number.

So if A1 is 41 then B1 must be positive (debit).

If A4 is 42 then B4 must be negative (credit).

How Can I Copy Desired Cell Content
I'm using Excel 2007 and s/s is 325501 rows deep. It consists of series of ranges between 4 and 30 rows deep.

What I want to do is locate the next appearance of a name and copy its accompanying number.
Doing this manully is not feasible, given the large size of the s/s .

I enclose a small attachment showing what I am trying to achieve. For those who don't like opening attachments the wording in it is :

The desired objective is to place in column Q the next appearing number in column L of the name in column C.

The VLOOKUP formula in column Q presents the desired number but (problem!) presents a zero when next appearance = blank.

When this happens I want the formula/code to repeatedly lookup the next appearance until it finds a number.

Examples of where next numbers appear are given here in column R.

so use 1 url and add the different cell content as a variable to it?
i.e. i'd like to use this url: [url]=[url] for the whole collumn and automatically all new lines that might be added and ,,CELL-INFO'' should be replaced bij the different cell content in the column (Column:A)

So I have 5 macros called Macro1 - Macro5, and I need some code for the 'Go' button which will run the right macro depending on what number is in cell B10.
