Using Formula To Target Multiple Keywords In Order To Categorize Cells

Jan 15, 2014

I have a big file here : [URL] .....

As you can see, the second column contains abstracts which I want to use to determine categories for each document (each line).

Categories are as followed :
Diabetes prevention -> keywords : sugar, diabet*, insulin*
Obesity prevention -> keywords : weight-loss, fat*, LDL
etc. (5-8 categories)

To target one keyword, I found this formula :
=IF(IFERROR(SEARCH("*diabet*"; $B3); 0); "Diabetes prevention"; " ")

What I would like to know is how to add more than one keywords in this formula.

I would also like to know, if it is even possible, how to put every categories in this column, so that i don't have a category per column ... It's hard to explain.

I want to have in front of each line the corresponding column. It means that the formula has to search for every keywords and select one or more appropriate categories.

How To Categorize List / Column Into Separate Ones By Finding Keywords

Jul 28, 2014

Say I have a list:

Something something apple
Something something orange
Something something banana
Something apple something
Something banana something
Apples woo
Apples And bananas
Something orange something
Something something apple pie
Something something vegetables

And I want to separate the list into separate columns/lists with certain keywords (e.g. apple, orange, banana) like so:

Something something apple
Something apple something
Apples woo
Something something apple pie

[Code] .....

The "multiple words found" part isn't a big deal (I'm not sure how I'd deal with it anyways). The "Unsorted" part is there assuming creating the separate lists won't remove the entries from the original list (which would then leave all the unsorted text).

Finding Keywords To Identify Product In Multiple Cells

Jul 23, 2012

Macro - it is currently set up to find a specific text, and activate that cell. From there, the spreadsheet has data in 6 cells in the 6 rows below the active cell. What I need the macro to do is to identify the product based on key words in a range of cells: that is, if any of those cells contain the string "total", than the product type is total, but if "total" is not found, look for keywords such as "alpha" and "beta", to identify the product type. If its not a total product, then i want it to look for "productB", "productc", and so on with relevant keywords until the product is identified.

I think IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH can be used, but I'm not sure how, and I'm not sure how to search all 6 cells (to make things worse, the number of cells vary, so I'm using the "find" function to figure out the first and last cell that contain data).

Worksheet Change Event For Multiple Target Cells?

Jan 20, 2014

I'm trying to run a macro anytime cells G2, J2, M2, O2, P2, S2, V2, Y2, AB2, AE2, AH2, AK2, AN2, AQ2 change.

Right now I have the below code which is working well, but I only have it set for G2. Do you know what the notation is to make the target range multiple cells?

Also, I use the xlDown command in my sorting code, but later on it reverts back to "A5:AT60"... is there any way I can remove these specific cell references? I want to avoid having to re-write the macro every time my selection shrinks or expands.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Not Intersect(Target, Range("G2")) Is Nothing Then

Formula To Return Multiple Criteria Including Stretch Target

Jul 8, 2014

I'm struggling to come up with a formula that ill give me the following:

I have will have a row of data (cells A4:H4 on the attached example), in the respective cells below each value in row 4 I want formula that will give me a value of 10 if it sees 90% in the cell above reducing to a value of 0 if it sees 80% in the cell above. I think that there should be a relatively straightforward formulae for that, my problem is that I want to add a further criteria that says; if the value in row 4 increases above 90% and reaches 95% then I must return a value that is 10 for 90% but "stretches" to 12 for 95%. Anything below 80% should return a value of 0, and anything over 95% should return a value of 12.

Search Multiple Worksheets For Several Keywords

May 11, 2009

I am trying to set up a worksheet which takes keywords from several cells (user populates these cells) and searches all worksheets for these keywords.

for example, i have C1:G1 set up as possible search string entry cells where the user types their text. I need a function which takes the data in whichever of these cells have been filled in (i.e. it may only be in 1 cell, 2 cells or all 5) and searches each worksheet for all cells containing ALL keywords. (as it finds each one, i will highlight the cell, but that part of the code is obviously very easy )

Currently i have this (note, i havent yet figured out how to but the k1 to k5 variables into the search string yet which is why they are set but not used):
At the moment, its not ever looking past worksheet 1 - can anyone see why? and then how to i get it to look for all entered keywords?

Search Multiple Keywords In A String?

Jan 22, 2014

I am busy building a spreadsheet that must do the following.



Above is a basic example of the data I am using What the spreadsheet must do is it must search cell B1 for the key word in in cell E1, if it does not find the keyword, it must search the same cell for the keyword in cell E2 and so on if it finds the key word it must return a consatination of cell A1 and the Keyword.

This is easy enough to do using the search function together with a couple of nested IF statements but where the problem comes in is that I am needing to run the search on about 12000 lines using over 10000 key words.

currently I have sheet with a formula in Column A containing 40 nested IFs searching for the first 40 key the same formula in Column B searching for the next 40 keywords and so on but to search 10 000 keywords(Client name or Client number) I am needing to apply this formula to 250 columns over 12000 line which makes the sheet very resource incentive.

How do I streamline this to make the spreadsheet more efficient

Keywords As Delimiter To Split Cells

Jul 1, 2008

I've got a column of data containing addresses. What I want to do is split the column after certain keywords such as "street", "road", "close" etc and move any words that come after these in the cell into the next cell to the right.

For example, in one cell I might have "54 Burberry Road Finsbury London"... what I want to do is have part of the text remain in the original cell i.e. "54 Burberry Road" and the rest, "Finsbury London", moved to the cell on the right.

Not all cells in the column will match this format so if it doesn't find a keyword, nothing will occur and it will move to the next cell down etc. until it reaches the end of the column.

There are no delimiters (apart from the spaces) between the words.

I haven't figured out all of the keywords that I will need to search for yet but I should be able to extrapolate from something fairly generic.

Excel 2007 :: Copy Same Cells From Multiple Worksheets All Named In Ascending Numeric Order?

Jan 15, 2013

In Excel 2007, Windows 7 Home Premium, I am trying to summarise multiple worksheets into one sheet, creating a list in one column in this summary sheet that includes the cell contents from the same cell from each sheet. For example, my first sheet is called KCD183 and I want to list the value from KCD183 Cell A2 in my Summary Cell A2, then show KCD184 Cell A2 in Summary Cell A3 (i.e. the next row down). So my Summary sheet will list all cell A2s from all my sheets, 1 after the other down column A and will continue to add these for any new sheets I add.

I realise that I could just export the spreadsheet to Access and report on it from there, but I don't have the software!

This code works fine, but it does not look professional. I tried to write like: If Application.Intersect(Target, rng1, rng2, rng4, rng5) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub

it did not work, but as it is down here it worked

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rng1 As Range, rng2 As Range, rng3 As Range, rng4 As Range, rng5 As Range

Duplicating Multiple Buttons Adjusting Target Cell Automatically

Jun 6, 2014

I tried to search the forum for my unique problem but had no luck. As you will see attached, I have a series of excel buttons I need to duplicate and have target a different set of cells. I am hoping there is a way to avoid manually doing this.

The goal of the document is to push the button when both colours in the row and column interact (research on birds). There are two additional behaviours with an exact same set of buttons but they need to target "Body Rush" and "Food Displacement" tables underneath. I need all the buttons on one page since multiple behaviours happen simultaneously that need to be recorded.

I have something like 100+ modules in VBA I have created, I am hoping there is an easier way to do this so I don't have to create another ~200 modules in order to get the last two behaviours setup.

I am hoping there is either an easier button system or way to make buttons adjust somehow.

I am not the most advanced VBA user

Categorize Set Of Number Into Different Group

Jul 10, 2009

I have different sets of number from six digits to a max of 15 digits


What I want is to get the proper category for this number depending upon there digit for eg.
number starting with Z and of 8 digits belongs to group A
number staring with Y ending with 5 and 10 digits belong to group B
number ending with A and which does not starts with any alphabet has 8 digits belongs to group C.
similary ...
A user need to just key in the number, press tab (or any other button) and group for that number
must be displayed (depending upon the compostion of that numbers).

What I can think of is to first seprate each digits from the given number, verify it and then filter them through the groups to get the final group.

I need a macro or a code which searches for the day, one day before the present day, and then custom "Current Day Document Count In" column such that it does not contain "0" and then copy the entire content and then paste in the second sheet. This should be repeated for two days before the present day too. I have attached the spreadsheet, where the first one is the report, second one is where I need the output to be. I have also attached one more "output" sheet to show how the report should look like. I tried to Record a Macro which sticks to the present number of cells, but cannot be used on a daily basis.

Copy Multiple Ranges From Multiple Sheets And Paste In Order Via VBA

Apr 21, 2013

I've got several worksheets that all have the exact same layout that a user will enter unique information in to each worksheet. Then I've got a final worksheet that I want to have a button that the user can click and when they do, it will look to each worksheet and do the exact same process for each worksheet as follows:

It first looks to see if the worksheet is visible. If it is, I want it to copy the range A5 to K5 down until it gets to the last non-blank cell in column C. The first non blank cell that will be referenced will be C7. Then I want it to paste this information into the range A5:K5 on the final sheet named Sheet8 with the same values and keep cell formatting such as width and height, font. If the worksheet is not visible, it skips the sheet.

I want it to do this for each visible worksheet, placing the next visible worksheet info under the previous visible worksheet info. My current code as shown doesn't do that. It requires that something be inSheet8 A6 before it will even paste, then it pastes the info from A5:K5 but it doesn't do just the values nor does it keep the formatting. What I mean about not doing just the values is some of the info that needs to be copied comes from a drop down they can choose from and it copies the actual drop down menu. Also, it seems to copy all of the ranges from each sheet and paste it into just A5:K5 on Sheet8 and overwrites each other instead of pasting Sheet2 just below the information from Sheet1. So the only information shown after the entire process is completed is the information from the last visible sheet.

If Worksheets("Sheet1").Visible = True Then
End If

Categorize The Data Based On Thier Value

Oct 9, 2008

I have a problem using the if formula with comparison operators. I have a range of fields for geographic areas and the values in these fields are a percent. I want to categorize the data based on thier value.
For example:

If the value in the cell is between 0 and 9.9 percent, I would like the catagorize this as a "1" and so forth.

The entire categories I have are:

0-9.9% = 1
10-30% = 2
30.1-39.9% = 2,5
40-60% = 3
60.1-69.9% =3,5
70-100% = 4

Using the if formula I know how to obtain an answer if the condition is exact -if(A1=0:1:A1) but I would like to enter a range of values for the comparison such as
-if A1 is between 0 and 9.9 then 1, if A1 is between 10 and 30 then 2 etc.

Formula For Number Of Perfect Ordered Needed To Achieve Certain Target

Jun 11, 2014

I was working on a chart to calculate my Amazon seller rating to see how many more perfect order I need to hit my next target grade. Here is how the calculation works.

Order with no problem gets 100 points per order
Minor problem gets 0 point
Moderate problem minus 100 points
Severe problem minus 500 points

Grade are evaluate by:
<84.5 Fair
<96.5 Good
<98.5 Very good
Above is Excellent

Total points / total orders = final grade (or percentage)

As of now i got : 53800 (points) / 624 (orders) = 86.22(%)

Now that I know what grade I've got so far and I also want to know how many more perfect orders I need to achieve my next targets or in case some bad orders come by and how far they pull me down.

Attached is my work sheet so far and I'm just missing the calculation for the orange shaded part.
