Trim Not Working

Aug 3, 2009

[data] ...

I am having problems removing "2009-642" from the above text string(s) (doesn't matter which)

This is just a sample line and it is not always in the same place so I am afraid a simple mid function from a set starting point will not suffice, the number is also dynamic in size, location and leading digits.

As a result I have created a formula to get rid of the "1 XS0444499197" part of the formula leaving me with " 2009-642 "

Now unfortunately I need to get rid of the spaces (or what look like spaces) just leaving me with the number but infuriatingly I can not get the trim function to work, so I can only guess that it is not in fact reading these spaces as spaces, and I'm at a bit of a loss how to proceed.

Using TRIM Function

Jan 30, 2008

I'm trying to clean up a very large spreadsheet that contains a tremendous amount of empty space.

I tried using the TRIM function to delete some of the additional space within each cell, but it only seems to allow you to update one cell/column at a time.

Is there a way to clean up the entire spreadsheet at once?

Find/Replace all spaces won't work because some cells have multiple words, and they need the space in between.

Using Vlookup On Trim Function

May 1, 2014

I'm taking 3 very different reports and consolidating them into one manageable readable form. Only problem is that no 1 report has the same info. I've created a key to form pick up the same information that is read differently. As my spreadsheet grows so do the formula issues. I've had one report that has been the biggest pain to break apart. It takes several things and consolidates them, ex: big 2014 girl - dog 20145

I'm using a trim formula to read the last 5 digits that is the only consistent part of the string. =right(J3,5) to trim what i need to read (20145). this formula works. I'm than trying to preform a Vlookup based on what is returned from the trim. The trim number is located in a separate tab as the "key" 20145 = golden Labradors. formula for vlookup that works by itself, but throws up a blank cell when i point it to the trim cell.

=iferror(vlookup($A2,Info!A:ZZ,2,False)" ")

$A2 = the info 20145 from the trim
Info! = is the tab with my 20145 = golden Labradors
A:ZZ = the range in which i need it to find 20145
2 = the second column where it should find 20145 = golden Labradors
False = exact match.

Why my formulas work separately but not when used together? The Vlookup will work if I type in the number 20145. I don't want to type 20145 anymore. I want to use the trim and have the vlookup notice the number pulled from the trim.

Trim Function Is Slow

Feb 5, 2009

Due to the fact that some of the raw data I get dumped out of my database has leading and trailing spaces it is necessary to trim them. The one part of my code which seems to take forever to run is the section which performs this function on around 22,000 cells in one column. Here is the code I'm using. Is there a better way to do this?

'Set ServiceType = wsTmp.Range("C2:C" & tmpRows)
'For Each cell In ServiceType
'cell.Value = Trim(cell.Value)
'Next cell

The thing, with much code, seems to be that the slowness of my computer in executing code is directly proportional to the amount of uptime on the machine. Often a cold start will remedy the issue. Rather than having to do this daily to remedy the situation is there some other remedy to the problem?

Trim Macro: Trim All Of The Data From Rows 2:30 Removing Any Trailing Spaces After The Last Word In Each Cell

Apr 25, 2007

I have come up with this to Trim all of the data from rows 2:30 removing any trailing spaces after the last word in each cell. The macro takes a couple of minutes to run have I got something wrong that is making it run slowly or does the Trim process just take longer?

Dim myRange As Range
Dim myRow As Range
Set myRange = Range("2:30")
If myRange Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
myRange.Replace What:=Chr(160), Replacement:=Chr(32), _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False
For Each myRow In myRange.Columns
If Application. CountA(myRow) > 0 Then
myRow.TextToColumns Destination:=myRow(1), _
DataType:=xlFixedWidth, FieldInfo:=Array(0, 1)
End If
Next myRow
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Trim And Clean Function But Formula Doesn't Work?

Jan 31, 2014

I'm coping and pasting data (html) into a worksheet. When I try to format some of the columns as accounting$, number, ect. They won't format. It looks as if there are spaces before and after the data. So I tried the trim and clean function but it doesn't work, so I guess the blank "spaces" are not really spaces.

It gets better...

When I do the same exact copy and paste (as html) on another persons computer, they are able to format just fine, and the "spaces" are removed automatically.

Why is this working on one computer but not the other? Is it a setting that my computer has enabled or disabled? If so, what is it?

Worksheet Function Not Always Working?

Sep 24, 2012

I've written some code to try to count the number of cells that are not empty and save the result as a variable but sometimes the code seems to think that the cells are empty even though they are not.

The code goes through rows 1 at a time and counts the quantity of cells that are not blank and compares them with a couple other values.

The strange thing is if I execute the actual function =COUNTA(with the range that I am selecting below) the COUNTA function works properly by itself in certain problematic sections of the worksheet.

This code below seems to work correctly most of the time but I've found a few instances where it is not properly counting non-blank cells:

Range(ActiveCell.Offset(0, 8), ActiveCell.Offset(0, 27)).Select

QtyTests = WorksheetFunction.CountA(Range(ActiveCell.Offset(0, 8), ActiveCell.Offset(0, 27)))

why my QtyTests variable sometimes is saved as 0 even though there may be some cells that contain values?

Here is the expanded code:

Sub Macro()
'Global Variables
Dim QtyTests As Integer, ReqTests As Integer, InitQty As Integer, Cork As String, Corktype As String
Dim result As Long, x As Integer

IF Function Not Working For Entire Row While On Macro

May 10, 2014

I got a problem with a macro i'm working on. I got column D which contains text as "Figures", "Toys", "3DS", "PS3" etc. I also got column N where i need the macro to display "Toys" if it's a toy, figure, etc; or "Games" if it's "PS3", "PS4" etc.

I'm using the following code, to also select only blank rows (so to ignore row 1 which is table header). Problem is that the result shows only "Games".

Selection.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(RC[-9]=""*toys*"",""Toys"",""Games"")"

Find Function Not Working In Workbook

I'm in a workbook, and I want to look up a name. CTRLF or clicking on the binoculars both bring up the expected dialog box, but when I populate "Find What" and either hit enter, click Find All or Find Next, nothing happens.

The only thing I can think of is that I created a macro to function in one sheet only, then saved this workbook as .xlsm. But that doesn't seem right.

CountBLANK Not Working With Vlookup Function

Jan 27, 2014

I have 3 worksheets for 3 separate managers, each sheet has a column which uses a COUNTBLANK function to work out the number of days off an employee has had off in the last two weeks:

Now the formula works perfectly on each worksheet, however I also have a master worksheet (which is identically set out and formatted to the 3 manager sheets) which uses a vlookup formula to pull the data from all 3 worksheets into one at the beginning of the workbook.

The problem I've come across is that the COUNTBLANK formula doesn't work on the master worksheet - I think this has something to do with the vlookup formula entered into the cells which I consider to be blank, but excel doesn't?

I've tried using a separate vlookup formula to pull the data from the 3 managers worksheets and this does work unless an employee appears on more than one managers' sheet - then the data from both worksheets is added together.....

Is there another function I could use to display the information I need to?

Manual Filtering Function Isn't Working

Aug 14, 2014

Screenshot (72).jpg

This is probably a really stupid question, but I can't for the life of me figure it out. I need to do some very basic filtering, but the dropdown box where you check off the things that you want to filter by is not defaulting to show checkboxes. This didn't seem like a big deal at first, but it's made it impossible to filter all but one things. For instance, to filter everything but values that are 0, I would have to manually click every single value in the dropdown box. Clicking "select all" is doing literally nothing. It's this way for all my excel documents. how to get the boxes back? I've included a screenshot of what comes up whenever I click on the manual filter button to show what is coming up.

Would it be; Alarm(B3,"Pass") or Alarm(B3,"=Pass") or something else?
