Search Using Cell Content/Text

Oct 4, 2006

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.

Change Cell Content If Text Is Found In Different Cell?

Nov 29, 2011

I need a macro or formula that can parse a column of data and if it finds a specific string of text ,then it changes another cell on that row to zero. It can have multiple text variables but all return the same value. For Example,

if
artisan - matte - flat black
artisan - matte brushed gold
small - canvas - flat black

is found in a longer string of text

then it should change another cell on the same row to have a value of 0. Also i should mention that i need it to loop as it will be parsing through potentially thousands of rows.

Excel 2010 :: How To Modify Text Content Of A Cell

I want to edit phone numbers in format 1112224444 to 111-222-4444.

My best shot has been...

Excel 2010 (Mac)

ActiveCell.Offset(0, 0).Select
With ActiveCell
.Value = .Characters(1, 3) & "-" & .Characters(4, 3) & "-" & .Characters(7, 4)

Convert Array Into Text And Remove Duplicate Entries From Text In Cell?

Jun 12, 2014

I have the following two columns, and would like to obtain for each individual Company, the corresponding Country values excluding duplicates as text in a single cell.

Company 2Country B
Company 2Country C
Company 3Country C
Company 3Country C
Company 5Country A
Company 5Country C
Company 5Country C

For example:
- For Company 2, a cell containing "Country B, Country C"
- For Company 3, a cell containing "Country C"
- For Company 5, a cell containing "Country A, Country C"

I've approached generating an array using an IF statement, as in =IF(INDEX(A1:A8="Company 5",,),INDEX(B1:B8,,)," "), which returns the following array: ={" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";"Country A";"Country C";"Country C";" ";" ";" ";" "}.

The question is: how do I get that array to produce, as text in a cell: "Country A, Country C". Note that the duplicate Country C has been removed.

There are a few "StringConcat" User-defined functions that I've found elsewhere on the internet, but they don't seem to be able to handle to conditionally generated IF Index array, which I would think is key to parsing between Countries corresponding to each Company in the list.

Macro To Automatically Convert PrtScr Image Based Text To Real Text In Cell

Mar 22, 2014

Programming Excel VBA Macro to do OCR (text recognition) from a prt scr screen capture image and input the text into cells. Currently my Excel file has a push-button, and upon clicking on it the macro pastes into Excel the current clipboard image I have created by pressing prt scr while in another program. The macro then crops the image to the region with the applicable text. I have to then manually type the text I see in image format into the appropriate cells.

the VBA coding to automate this? I'd like it to use the clipboard image and run it through OneNote OCR, after which the applicable text values are automatically entered into the cells. Ideally the code will first crop to the region with the desired text before it does OCR. If this is not feasible, it will need to incorporate a method (keyword search?) to hone in on the desired text after the entire prt scr image has been OCRed.

On Cell Selection, In Named Range, Clear Content Or Add Text If Empty

Jul 24, 2009

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

End Sub

Change Content Of One Cell Based On Content Of Another

Formula/macro/etc that would enable me to have content of a cell changed based on the content of another cell in the same row.

I would need an entire sheet scanned to review for these occurrences and make the appropriate changes. I also would need the formula to be inclusive enough to scan for variations in column D cell content (PSA 1, PSA 2, etc).

Can't Convert Text To A Cell Address

Mar 12, 2010

Assume cell A1 contains a name and A2 contains the text "D7".

How would the code look like that
1. reads the contense in cell A2 (which is D7),
2. converts it (D7) to a cell address and finally
3. copies the content in cell A1 to the cell address found in A2 (in this case D7)

To illustrate I attached an Excel file.

Convert Cell Reference Text To Cell Formula

Aug 18, 2009

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.

Cell Formula To Convert Text To VBA Code

May 8, 2014

I am about to take on a rather large excel project for our company. The first part is coming up with how to deal with our drafting department's length inputs. In this project, our users will be entering lengths in a unique format. I have to convert that unique format to a standard Foot-Inch-Fraction format.

To try to keep the file size down and keep the complexity down, converting a cell formula to VBA so i can run this on a group of cells rather than repeating my code downward multiple rows on multiple sheets.

It is either this or come up with my own font that will convert it for me but I do not know where to start with that. How to take a stab at converting this to a VB code i can run?

A3 = 1.0108
B3 = 1'-1 1/2"

The code in B3 looks like this:

[Code] .......

An explanation of the unique format we use in our drafting department:

Basic Feet, Inch and Fraction format = 0 . 00 00 = Feet . Inch Fraction

The numbers left of the decimal point are feet. The first two numbers to the right of the decimal point are inches and the next two are sixteenths of an inch.

Examples:
4’-2" = 4.0200
15’-5 1/4" = 15.0504
4’-11 3/8" = 4.1106
0’-1 15/16" = 0.0115

After the document has been closed down I try to open it again and I am told "The file cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents."

When I click details it says "Unspecified error" and "Location: Part: /word/document.xml, Line: 2, Column: 0"

If I click ok it says "Word found unreadable content in "". Do you want to recover the contents of this document? If you turst the source of this document, click Yes.

Clicking Yes opens the document with all the contents and it is now renamed to Document 1. If I click no it does not open.
