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.

VBA To Build Copy Statement From Cell Content
A single worksheet holds all the values I need to move to various worksheets in the destination workbook. The destination workbook is MASTER.XLS and is already open. The source workbook has various names.

I have the macro walking through each value in column E of the source worksheet. When a match occurs, the corresponding cell in column F has the destination worksheet name, the corresponding cell in column G has the destination cell address and column H has the destination value (string value).

I have dim statements for SheetName, CellAddr and CellVal ; all set for String. I have been playing with "Offset" as well as "Select"ing through the worksheet hierarchy to drive to the desired destination cell. All seem to be more work than necessary and none work properly.

What I am looking for is a set of macro statements that I can use as a "template" within the balance of the macro I have written. I would also happily accept recommendations about books that provide a step-by-step approach to learning the capabilities of Excel's VBA functions. I know from my limited programming background that there are many ways to do the same thing. I'd rather start with the most efficient rather than burn lots of hours experimenting.

.ColorIndex = 16

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"
Else
Target.ClearContents
End If
Application.EnableEvents = True
On Error Goto 0
End If

Convert Cell Reference Text To Cell Formula
I am wanting to convert a cell reference text
"=$A$1"
to an actual cell reference
=$A$1

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
i.e. INDIRECT(CELL)
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.

Convert Text Delimited File To .xls File Using Vba
how to word it but if someone understands then please help. I have two excel data files namely Book1.xls & Book2.xls. Both files have different data in it. Both files contain macros. When these macros run the files become **FINALIZED** version.

Originally, I get the above files in my email as txt. attachments. I then move these two txt files to my desktop in a folder called Folder-1. Then I open these files as an Excel and save them.

Basically, I need to know if two txt files are sitting in a folder-1 on my desktop. What can I do or what can I clik that....those two text files get converted into excel automatically, including running that macro I talked about in the above paragrah.

To put it differently, if I have two txt files Book1.txt, Book2.txt in a folder, how can I automatically create an excel **FINALIZED**version which sits right next to their txt version.

Vba Cell() Text Read Limitation
I was sure it would be in your archives but couldn't find it - apologies if this is a FAQ.

I am trying to extract the data in a spreadsheet to a bunch of files, one file per cell. The cells I need have very long text strings in them, actually whole HTML files.

Using this

Dim HTML As String
HTML = Cells(RowNdx, ColNdx).text

I can only read 1024 bytes - not nearly enough. Is there something else I can do to read the cell into a string variable?

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).

VBA To Convert To Number
I have a string of imported data which comes into an existing spreadsheet. It cannot be changed prior to importing as the data is provided by an external vendor.

When the data is imported into my spreadsheet the Error Checking tag comes on, after I select the cells where certain numeric data has been entered, stating that this is a range of Numbers Stored as Text. If I click on the Error Checking tag and select the Convert to Number option and then enter my VLOOKUP function I get the desired answer. If I do not convert the text to numbers then my VLOOKUP function does not work at all. The cell just displays the function text itself instead of the desired answer.

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.
