I need to set up a formula to choose 2 job titles from a single column. There can be 2 to n job titles (non-repeating) and I want to find the title at random. I have no problem finding the first job title using index and randbetween, but I want the second title to meet the same criteria, just not equal to the first job title.
Got a huge dataset with a list of non-repeating names. For example, among the dataset is about 1,500 names that dont repeat itself in a column. How can I isolate just that list of non-repeating names from that huge dataset?
I have a workbook where Sheet 1 Col A is a list of dates. Sheet 2 Col A is a relatively short list of constantly changing names. I need to put this list of names in a repeating fashion in Sheet 1 Col B. Ideally I would like for Sheet 1 to regenerate Col B each time the roster list is changed.
I have a database output file where one of the columns contains managers names, often more than once. I want to apply an autofilter on manager name and then copy the result to another sheet or sheets. My criteria for the autofilter is a variable pointing to a list of names that at present I maintain by hand; a for-each-next loop then cycles through the names.
What I would like to do, before running the autofilter code, is to create the list of names via code. This would then automatically pickup names that are missing.
The code I have so far is below:
Public Sub find_managers() Dim managers1 As Range Dim names1 As Range Dim n1 As Variant Dim n2 As Variant
In my mind it should check the names in the unique list against the imported list and add any missing names.
I'm trying to create a staff rota which will populate a rota randomly when prompted - I have been trying to find some way of connecting the random lists and the staff names, though this has proved difficult (to say the least!). How best to proceed? I'm also fully aware of the possibility that my present design will also double book people (place then on reception and telephone duty simultaneously).
I want to create a simple worksheet that takes a list of names (All of the members of my family) and Randomly selects another name from that same list and matches them to it ( I don't want to say "paired" because I want each person to have a one way relationship to the other, in other words just because personA is matched to personB, i don't want personB to automatically be paired to personA) I hope that makes sense. Once every name on the list is matched with a person I would like to move that name to a database that I can track each year. The practical application of it is this: Each year our family randomly draws names and we are tasked to buy a new x-mas ornimate for that person, ideally you would not get the same person 2 years in a row, and the person that you have does not have you in return simply to add more variety and the database would track who had who each year.
Code: Sub test() Dim a, i As Long, temp, n As Long a = Range("b2", Range("b" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)) Randomize With CreateObject("System.Collections.SortedList") For i = 1 To UBound(a, 1)
I have list of various city names in column B. From that i need unique city names in validation cell.
The reason is,
we have emp id, name, designation, area, marital status for our employees. From that if i select emp id from validation cell1 i have to get all employee id's available in the sheet1 is need to come under the validation2 cell automatically. and if i select "area" from validation cell1, all unique areas need to be list out in the validation cell2. Its look likes a filter. but without filter i need this for creating application.
I made a code that automatically checks the date and then compares it to the date of the last save. If it is a new date then the colors of the tabs will randomize. It can also be done manually via a button. The problem is that I have now realized that the colors are always have the same pattern. Every day the first color is an orange color, no matter how many times I randomized yesterday...and so on. Is there a way to make the randomness not have a repeating pattern?
Sub MMVII_4_9_b() Dim NewDate If Sheets("Scrappaper"). Range("F2") = Date Then NewDate = 0 Else NewDate = 1 End If 'Determines whether it is a new day or not Sheets("Scrappaper").Range("F2") = Date 'Updates the date If NewDate = 0 Then 'Does nothing if the date is the same Else
Been trying to think of a way to get random numbers 1 to 36 generated without repeating in the same column, however also getting it to perform the same opertaion in 9 more columns (B:J) without the same number appearing in the same row.
1 2 5 4 2 5 3 1 3 4 1 5 4 1 2 3 5 3 4 2
Unsure if this is possible, have created a basic script for random number generation but have no clue how to expand across columns.
I've read a lot of tutorials on how to use pivot tables, but found them either too basic, or too advanced, and never finding any example of what I am looking to do.
I have a database, column A holds names, and column B their phone numbers. I'd like to generate a list of unique names and their associated telephone numbers. I figure I can use a pivot table to do this.
But I do not quite understand how to format the pivot table to put the name in one column and the phone number in the next. I will use this pivot table as a vlookup range. I assume I can do this.
I have an excel assignment that has about 4000 orders for wood. I am suposed to find the company that ordered the most wood and of what kind. I am really at a loss for how to do this and have combed over my book quite afew times trying to figure it out. However it has little if any excel info and nor does the ** that came with it outside of how to install data analysis tools. I figure I need to find a way to get excel to combine the numbers together for orders from the same company but after trying for afew hours I have gotten no where.
I have a data set where the row headings repeat a lot. I have 5 headers repeated probably 30-45 times each. Eg. Truck, Car, Van, Tank, House, Car
At the moment I am using the formula... =INDEX($B$2:$M$45,MATCH($O$2,$A$2:$A$45,0),MATCH(O4,$B$1:$M$1,0))
which will only return the result of the first occurrence of the cell it is looking for (for eg. I am looking for the values in the cells in columns labelled 'Car', is it possible for it to look past the first occurrence in the data set and find all the values?
I want to generate numbers (1 to 15) in cells A1 through O1, but the number in each cells should be unique compare to the other cells, how can I do it? If I use =randbetween(1,15), I can not get unique number in each cell, some numbers are duplicated.
I have 12 Cells, years 1 to 12. I want to create a random number for each cell, which then depending on what the number is, either 1-75 being 8,000,000 or 76-100 being 10,500,000, place it in the cell and be able copy it down. What i have done already you can see on the attached workbook, or the table i used:
I used this table to generate the random number to give either 8m or 10.5m, except i put the VLOOKUP in the year 1 cell, added some dollars signs and copied down but that only makes them all the same, so i want a way to make each year have its own random number preferably without making 10 tables.
I have a list of colours from A1 to A10. This list may change, get longer or get shorter. In B1 I would like this list to repeat over and over again. but changes. I have attached the list in question, and what I would like it to do.
So to clarify - add a colour to Column A, it will add to the repeated list in Column B.
Is it possible to add letters to this "Unique random number" generator it is very fast and takes only 5s to run on 50,000 rows, I have a different "Unique random Sequence generator" macro but it takes about 30 minutes to run on 50,000 rows
Sub generateuniquerandom() Dim b() As Boolean, e As Range, k&, x& Dim lRow As Long With Sheets(1) lRow = .Range("F" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
I'm needing to generate a unique random value for a database with 3546 cases. The unique random values cannot be duplicates of each other. I tried the =RANDLOTTO function that I learned of in an old post on this board, but that results in "#NAME?" appearing in the first cell. I tried to install the Add-Ins (both the Analysis ToolPak and the Analysis ToolPak - VBA, but nothing seems to happen. Is there another way to generate these numbers?
I need to compare two lists of client names. One list has 59k names to be compared to second list of 1000 names. The list of 59k are listed in column D and the other list is in Column E. I tried conditional formatting but unfortunately some of the names are slightly different I.e. fair point communications vs fair point communications inc. I was trying to put in v lookup with a trim function but it didn't seem to be working.
I need to make a list that has 90 people and each day I need it to pick 4 random people. I need it to keep rotating people daily for the entirety of the monthfrom the first day of the month without utilizing the same people over again. I not excel savy at all so I need it dummy proof
