Using A Text File To Hold Sequential Numbers

Oct 14, 2009

i found a macro that im trying to get working from the site below to generate a number everytime my template is opened.

ive put the code in the thisworkbook module as directed and changed the relevant path but it doesnt do anything i think im missing something but cant see what. this is the code ive placed in thisworkbook module of my template

Trying To Find The Max Value In Range Of Cells That Hold Text Equivalents

Jun 9, 2006

I'm trying to find the max value in range of cells that hold text equivalents?

e.g. cells contain 001, 002, 003, 004.
therefore max value is 004

Dim lMaxVal As Long
lMaxVal = Application.WorksheetFunction.Max(Val(rangeHazRoomNum))

Import Large Text File Of Numbers Without Excel Splitting Numbers?

Jul 19, 2014

I have a text file with rows and columns of numbers ranging from 1-4 digits that I'd like to import/copy into Excel with each number being in its own cell. But whenever I copy/try to import, Excel splits all of the 3-4 digit numbers up into single digit numbers. The text file has 10,000+ columns (each number occupies two columns so I have half of that amount in numbers) and 300+ lines.

Is the file simply too large for Excel to handle or is there a way I can do this?

Convert Numbers Stored As Text To Numbers (attached File)

Oct 22, 2009

In the ID column of the attached excel file whenever I convert the numbers stored as text to numbers it results in a weird transformation.

e.g. an ID of 480610141001 becomes 4.8061E+11. When I do the same process in the name column, which has similar numbers, it will give the correct result following the same process.

Using If To Sum() Non-sequential Numbers

Jan 23, 2009

I need a formula to add data in it's respective column, only if the month and year match.

The columns of data will be very long, thousands of lines possibly.

So, basically, in this example.

in O1, if the the data in the columns below match the month(M1) and year (N1), then sum those variables.

Aug 17, 2007

I have created two names within column A (ie: Insert/Name/Define)

in cell A1 I've named StartA01
in cell A5 I've named EndA05

I would like to create a sequential number within this range via script, whereby when new rows are inserted, the script will update the order.

eg:

begin with:

A01
A02
A03
A04
A05

3 rows inserted will update to:

A01
A02
A03
A04
A05
A06
A07
A08

Inputting Sequential Numbers From One Cell

Nov 28, 2008

I am trying to make excel list in a column like 1,2,3,4,5. this is dependant on a value i place in one cell eg 5

i want excel to then place 1,2,3,4,5 in seperate cells down a column. does this make sense.

then the calculations will only appear the the numbered cells.

Display Missing Sequential Numbers?

Apr 17, 2013

I have a sheet where one column has sequencial numbers from lowest to highest with some missing. So for example: A1 1, A2 3, A3 5, A4 6. Is there a formula that will display all the numbers that are missing from this column without skipping rows? So let's say: B1 2, B2 4 ect.

Basically I will be putting this on a different tab, so someone can go to that tab and see what numbers have not been used. It is a large range and is difficult for someone to scan through it all.

Inserting Sequential Numbers Into A Column

Oct 1, 2009

I have a column of an undefined number of rows where I need to add item numbers from 1 to however many items there are, starting from A9 downwards.

The last 3 used rows on the sheet contain signatures etc so it should not number the bottom 3 rows.

pretty sure its fairly simple code but i dont have anything similar from previous files that i can re-use to do this :p

just needs a simple

count how many rows are blank from A9 downwards (to say A200)
for num=1 to count do
Cell range(A(9+num) = num
end

i just dont know the code well enough to write it and make it work :p

Autofill Rows With Sequential Numbers

Oct 8, 2011

I currently have an array that is 6 columns by 7 rows that is populated by referencing other workbooks and returning the sum of their values. For issue tracking revison etc... I would like to have the rows incrementally numbered (0,1,2... until it reaches number "X" which is a grand total in one of the fields.

This would happen for column 1 row 1 all the way through column 6 row 7 and fields with 0 as a total don't get a number or can have a 0 or blank.

Ex.
1 2 3 4 5 6 (rows)
1 3 x x x x x
2 x 7 x x x x
3 4
4
5
6
7

row numbering...
1
2
3 (skip col. 1 row 2)
1
2
3
4..... continues on till the end.

I would like this to be something somewhat automatic to eliminate the redundancy of having to manually perform this task.

Update Sequential Numbers After Row Deletion

Oct 16, 2007

How do I get my worksheet (ServicePlan) to update column A (plan number) after deleting a the row from a userform. When I delete the row the plan numbers do not update.

Example: I delete plan #1 from the worksheet. The plan number #2 should now be amended to read plan #1 and the plan number for record #3 should now be amended to read Plan #2, however the plan numbers #2 and #3 remain the same.

Plan #Rv# Name:Dept: Rep:
11.1mikeEnvironmental Cathy S.
22.1TomCasualty Rich A.
3 1.5 Michelle Special Programs Diane

Here is the code I used for the delete plan # button. Thank you

Private Sub CommandButton15_Click()

If MsgBox("Are you sure you wish to delete this record?", vbYesNo, "Confirm Deletion") = vbYes Then

sheet1.Activate

Dim strFind
Dim Nullstring
Dim rSearch As Range 'range to search
Set rSearch = sheet1.Range("A2:A1000")
Dim c
Dim r As Long

Check & Add Sequential Numbers In Column

Jan 26, 2008

I have two columns A and B filled with numbers. Column A has the identifier number and Column B has number that represents intensity for the data set.

Column A can be anything from 75-1000, however, sometimes the adjacent rows are not sequential (i.e. 101, 102, 104).

1) Is there a way to automatically check for skipping numbers in Column A.
2) When it finds a skipped number, insert a row for column A and B.
3) Then put the correct number in Column A (i.e. 103) then put 0 in for column B

Enter Sequential & Random Numbers

Feb 1, 2008

I am trying to create a summary sheet that will look on certain worksheets based on on a cell. For example:

If cell E1 equals 10-Oct-30 then it will pull data from tab 'End Oct 30' I would prefer to use a formula for this calculations. to aid in another persons potential use. A custom function would be OK.

Fill In Missing Sequential & Repeating Numbers

Dec 10, 2008

I am busy with a very large dataset +-20 000 records showing the movement data
and I am having problem with inserting missing data: I have columns titled day hour and position, but multiple records for each as data was initally recorded by second. Data looks like this

Day Hour Position
1 2 Z5
1 2 Z5
1 3 Z5
1 3 Z4
1 16 Z1
12 2 Z3
13 0 Z3

What I need to end up with is a sequential dataset running from day 1 to 388 with hours 1-24 of each day. Positions need to be filled in for all data recorded (see above). The big problem is that movements between positions need to be recorded and accounted for i.e if more than >80 of time was spent at the position Z3 then that is the position for the hour.

Roll Sequential Numbers Back & Forward

Jan 28, 2008

I am running a worksheet that runs through 4 week periods.

Example: 10.1 10.2 10.3 10.4 11.1 11.2 11.3 etc.

I wish to insert a formula that will roll forward or back this data when required.

I have no problem rolling whole numbers & dates.

Iam using Excel 2000.

Insert Rows For Missing Sequential Numbers

Feb 19, 2008

The excel file has industrial information arranged by sector. The sectors are represented by six digit codes that are not strictly sequential. For example, a typical example of consecutive codes is 120011,120012,120030,120040,130011. There are upwards of three hundred sectors.

The data I am using is missing certain sectors - sometimes more than 30 at a time. I would like to find a quick way to identify the missing sectors and insert rows there, preferably with the first cell in the row being the missing sectoral code.

I have a similar problems with columns as well. But I can always just transpose the data and use whatever solution works for the rows.

Removing Quotes From A Sequential File

Data Validation Dynamic Sequential Numbers List

Jul 21, 2007

I am looking for a way to define a 'Data Validated' Cell to hold a List of Dynamic Sequential Numbers - from 1 to the Value of cell A4. For example:

If cell A4 has a value of 5 the 'Data Validated' List will be 1,2,3,4,5

I have tried to 'name' the Array-Formula {=ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&A4))} and put the 'name' as the List source but without success.

Copy / Drag From Sequential Column To Non-Sequential Ones While Retaining Sequence

Jan 29, 2014

I have a form made that needs to copy a value from another sheet. The Form is 10 rows 5 columns and and in format for easy print. On sheet2 I have a column where each row is filled with a name.

I need to put this name into sheet1, so in the the appropriate cell I put =Sheet2!B2 and it gives me the value (name) from the other sheet.

Then I want to copy the form bellow the 1st one so that I have the same form but with the next name, which means I want =Sheet2!B3 to appear when I copy, but since my form is 10 rows when I copy it the formula copies to =Sheet2!B12 instead of B3.

I need to make close to a thousand of this forms ready for printing and I would like to avoid having to manually set the formula for the next cell.

Print Same Sheet Multiple Times With Sequential Page Numbers?

Dec 21, 2012

I am trying to set up excel sheets for documents that we print often. I would like to print them with page numbers in right footer that increases sequentially.

setting up a macro. But very time I print it starts from same number instead of the number after where I left off. Example: if I print today with page numbers 1 through 12, next time I want it to print number 13 through whatever no of copies printed.

Here is the code I copied from one of the threads here:

[Code] .....

I need the page number in right footer and also the macro to save the last number printed.

Fill Range With Sequential Numbers Based On Corresponding Column Groups

Feb 15, 2010

In the attached workbook I'm trying to populate Column E with sequential numbers (as shown) based upon a changing range (defined as a named range called 'range'). Is it possible to write a formula in the cells in Column E that will do this?

Compare Numbers To A Text File

May 15, 2008

This is a continuation of a thread that jindon and I had over at the "other" excel site.

OK, where did we leave off.. Oh yeah, It wont get past the:

If rng Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
because it thinks the range is empty.

Set rng = Range("b6:b1103").SpecialCells(2, 2)

Map Account Numbers From Text File

Sep 23, 2007

I receive a large text file each month from a vendor, This file contains account numbers, account descriptions and costs associated with the previous months period. There are 5 separate business units included in this report. I am looking for a way to translate the account numbers pprovided by the vendor to fit with in the account numbers we use. A Vlookup will work by creating a Map that translates their numbers to match ours, but this would need to be copied in monthly and as there are 15k rows or more it will likely take a while to process. I am wondering if others have attempted this and have advise as to what works best.

My plan was to create an Excel file that reflects the account numbers provided with our account numbers and then use a VLookup to match the data received with this master file as it were. ( So I would have a file called AccountMap which contains 4 columns, Cols A & B is the info provided by the vendor and Cols C & D are our codes and descriptions ). Then when the data arrives I would enter my vLookup and go from there.

Presently the steps are:
Open Vendor Text File in Excel
Copy a Business Unit and related Data to new WorkSheet
Insert Vlookup to map the vendor accounts to our accounting system format
Rearrange the data to meet our import requirements
Export the modified range as a Text file
Import into Accounting system

Remove Numbers From Imported Text File

Mar 24, 2007

I need to clean out unnecessary data from a file, (see attached text file), I'm not sure how to go about this in excel. basically every file starts with 9 cells that needs to be deleted, two cells of real data then one with garbage that needs to be deleted, it goes like that for 40 cells, then again 10 cells of garbage that needs to be deleted, then 40 of real data and goes like that up to 3000 lines, I know it sounds confusing but if you take a look at attached file, at the end I need to have
all cells full of data

Print To Text File And Static Random Numbers?

Jul 7, 2014

I am currently working on sheet that i need to have print out user names and random passwords for as many people that entered on the sheet to a text file for email. I am running into a few issues.

1. When i try to print to a .txt file of the text from column G on sheet 'Review and Generate', all the text appears on one line. I have been trying to use the Char(10) to create line spaces, but that has not worked out for me. How do i get excel to export text from a cell to a .txt file with correct line spaces?

2. I have a random password function running on column F, however i am trying to get it only produce one result and not keep calculating random values. How do i have the cell calculate only once?

Sequential Numbering Based On Column Having Text?

May 28, 2014

If a cell in column B has text in, is it possible for column A to auto populate a sequential number? so basically if data is entered in a cell in column B I want column A adjacent cell to auto populate a sequential log number?

How To Append Sequential Number To A Text String To Avoid Duplicates

Jun 12, 2014

Is there a formula that will add a number, in sequence, to the end of a text string to avoid duplicates?

I need to generate an ID number for transactions. This ID number is the Account Code-Last Two #s of the Year-Unique 3-Digit Number. So for instance, 5022-14-001 means it is the first transaction from account 5022 in the year 2014.

Column A has the Account Codes. Column B has the date of the transaction in MM/DD/YYYY format. So far the formula I have is:

=CONCATENATE(A1,"-",RIGHT(YEAR(B2),2),"-",TEXT(????,"000"))

With ???? being some function or set of nesting functions I need to create the sequential number. It needs to be able to say "Okay, this is the third instance of there being a 5022-14, so we need to stick -003 at the end of this."

Additionally, this "003" needs to be frozen, so if we change how the sheet is sorted and the line item moves around, it will still always be "003".

Looping, Open Text File, Copy Text, Close Text File

Sep 18, 2009

I have an existing spreadsheet with a column of strings (actually VIN numbers). These numbers correllate to a bunch of text files, that can exist in one of three folders (UsernameDesktop1, 2, or 3) on my desktop. What I need the macro to do is:

1) get the filename from A2 (A1 is a heading row)
2) Find the appropriate text file in one of the three folders
3) Put the folder name into I2
4) Scan the text file for some strings, and copy some data that follows those strings into J2:O2 (I can handle programming this)
5) Close the text file
6) repeat above for the remainder of filenames (about 1800 files)

VLookup Only Right Most 4 Digits Of The 6 Digits Sequential Numbers

Apr 30, 2014

I have the following working great, but would like to see it refine a little, as the data vlookup is 6 digits, but i only needs the last 4 digits is enough for me to work, my question is how do i go about adding that to the following function i have implemented and working fine.

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(B4,' cmfs01home\$peter[tracker data 4-25-14-a.xlsx]ControlSheet'!\$B\$2:\$F\$301,4,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(B4,' cmfs01home\$peter[tracker data 4-25-14-a.xlsx]ControlSheet'!\$B\$2:\$F\$301,4,FALSE)

Insert Text To One File - Remove Text From Equivalent Column In Another File?

Aug 13, 2013

Got a slight problem; I am making a "worker-plan", where you should be able to write a name on one file and have it updated (removed) from the equivalent columns on another file automatically. Here's an example with two separate projects:

Project 1 before and after changes:
Attachment 257366
Attachment 257367

Project 2 before and after changes:
Attachment 257368
Attachment 257369

You can see here how I intended it to work. When one worker is moved from Project 1 to Project 2, that worker should also be removed from those weeks in Project 1. The previous worker from Project 2 should also be removed from those weeks (in Project 2).

Are there any formulas that can make this work automatically? All week numbers will belong to the same columns in all files.

Edit: There are 30 files that should be syncronized, not just two.. I could also gather all files into one file with sheets, instead of having seperate files.
