Using The =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH Function To Search Multiple Cells)

Aug 21, 2009

I' having trouble using the =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH formula to search multiple cells.

I can get it to work to search one cell (as below):

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Same",G10)),"No Change",'Aug 09 Matrix'!F10)

(In this case the respone is No Change as Cell G10 contains "Same")

However cannot get it to work for several cells. I have pasted below and highlighted the function I would like it to perform:

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Same",G10:R10)),"No Change",'Aug 09 Matrix'!F10)

Essentially the other cells in that row (G10:R10) all contain "Same", however for some reason it is identifying this as FALSE and putting in the data from the 'Aug 09 Matrix' sheet.

ISNUMBER(SEARCH Function)

Jul 14, 2009

I have recorded the below code, is it possible to adjust this so that instead of using "USD" the macro will reference whatever currency the user inputs into say sheet1 cell A1?

CountIfs And Search (ISNumber) Function Together

Aug 11, 2014

I'm trying to develop a formula that can incorporate the search function in amongst a countifs formula. I have a column that contans the string "2.3 Manage Project Delivery" in a single cell. However, a single cell could also contain this text string in amongst other text and be in there multiple times - E.G; "2.1 Manage Customer Support, 2.3 Manage Project Delivery, 2.4 Close Program, 2.3 Manage Project Delivery" etc

My formula currently looks like this: =COUNTIFS('RDC Register'!$AW:$AW,"Not Overdue",'RDC Register'!$C:$C,"2.3 Manage Project Delivery") but it's not counting the cells that have 2.3 Manage Project Delivery in it more than once.

So basically I need to modify my formula to search for this text string in the cell and add all occurrences to the final count.

Nesting Isnumber Search Functions

May 25, 2007

I have this search function that works well: =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("which is < ",E9)),"test ok", "not ok") my E9 cell contains the phase: "I have a number which is < 9, and which is positive..." E9 has "which is < ", then i get back "test ok"

My question is.... how can I do this multiple times within the same function/cell. i.e. if I wanted to search "which is < " and/or "positive" in the same cell, then i get back "test ok", "positive number") I keep trying all combinations to no avail, like: =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("which is < ",E9)),"test ok", "not ok"), =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("positive",E9)),"positive number", "no good")

Keep in mind I am using a numeric example, although I am using this function to check if part of a cell matches specific text...

Nesting Isnumber Search Formulas

Jun 8, 2007

I am using the ISNUMBER formula to verify if specific text is found in a string of text.

This formula worked when I only needed to find 1 particular brand name:

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(""BrandB"",RC[6])),""B"",""C"")

Now I need to have 2 different brand names ("BrandB" and "J & B") that need to return a "B" and all others should return a "C".

I found a thread regarding this same topic, but I could not get their solution to work for me.
They recommended using:

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("BrandB",RC[6])),"B","C")&", "&IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("J & B",RC[6])),"B","C")

The fact that my second brand name is written with spaces ("J & B") could be adding to the problem, I don't know. I thought replacing the "C" with another "IF(ISNUMBER" function should work, but I have been unsuccessful at writing a formula that doesn't cause run-time errors.

VBA: Search Function: Which Shows An Input Box Where You Can Enter A Word To Search For

Sep 9, 2003

I'm from Bavaria, Germany. Right now, I am doing an internship for my studies. my problem: I need a search procedure which shows an Input Box where you can enter a word to search for. It should work like the original Excel search (Ctrl-F), but with a simpler design, like with my own Text "Enter your Query" and a Button "Submit Query" / "Quit search". Is there the possibility to Highlight the Search Target? The problem hereby is that this highlighting should not be permanent. That means the user sees the target for which he searched for, the cell highlighted in a different color, etc. But as soon as the user clicks onto another cell, etc., the highlighting vanishes. If there is no fitting match, there should be a MessageBox like "Sorry the Target xyz cannot be found"

Search Multiple Worksheets Against List Of Non-Exact Search Criteria?

Nov 2, 2009

I have a workbook with many many sheets in it. The first sheet contains a single column with about 10,000 different values. I'd like to use each of these as search criteria against ALL data in the other sheets (of which there are a good 50 or so). If matches are found (they don't have to be exact case), then I'd like two things to happen:

1. The rows containing the matched search criteria in the first sheet are highlighted.

2. In the cells adjacent to the search criteria in the first sheet, hyperlinks to the matched data are created and named after the sheet upon which this matched data appears.

I've attached a sample file to this post with ideal sample 'answers' to queries made of the first 2 terms.

How To Ask Formula To Search For Multiple Values Within One Search

Mar 4, 2014

I need one formula to copy and paste the checkcard data changing it from this "CHECKCARD XXXXXX5623" to "CHECKCARD 5623", but I need one formula to look for multiple known checkcard numbers. I will have more then one typically in the bank download so I need to search and copy at least two known numbers as shown below.

I am providing the formula that I am using right now, "=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("5623",B3)),RIGHT(B3,41),"")" but it only works for one checkcard number? Also I don't really need to capture the DEBIT or CREDIT that will always be at the end, it would be redundant. If it's easier to write the formula including that data that is no problem. What I want to copy and move into an adjacent cell is in red.

Here is the source data:
Row 2 - SONIC DRIVE IN#1531 AUSTIN TXDEBIT FOR CHECKCARD XXXXXX5623 DEBIT
Row 3 - JASON'S DELI # 125 Q64 AUSTIN TXDEBIT FOR CHECKCARD XXXXXX9718 DEBIT

VBA Find Function - Search Through Selected Range Of Cells For Key Letters

Jan 6, 2014

I am trying to code a macro that will search through a selected range of cells for key letters, for instance this cell may contain any combination of B, C, Te, Tc, RH, or LH. I would preferably like to search with capitalization being a factor but it is not a deal breaker. Below is a sample of what i have if the cell has a B, C it works for B but ignores the C i need it t o recognize both.

Code:
If InStr(1, ActiveCell.Text, "B") Then Range("O" + CStr(ActiveCell.Row)).Select
With Selection.Interior
.Pattern = xlSolid
.PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
.color = 65535
.TintAndShade = 0
.PatternTintAndShade = 0

Search Multiple Criteria If Match Append Multiple Cells To One Cell?

Apr 28, 2012

I am having such a difficult time creating a macro that will reduce the 5+hours I have to spend each week manually copying & pasting all of this data. I making an IMMENSE difference in this worker bee's life!

I have a workbook with two sheets (Sheet1 & Sheet2). Sheet1 has license #'s in column A and the state that the license belongs to in column B like this:

COLUMN ACOLUMN B11111Alaska11112Alabama11113Arkansas11114Arkansas
Sheet2 has three columns. Column A has the license #'s, column B has the state that the license belongs to and Columns C shows a line-of-authority tied to that license #.

COLUMN ACOLUMN BCOLUMN
C11111AlaskaProperty11111AlaskaCasualty11112AlaskaLife11112AlaskaHealth11112
AlabamaProperty11112AlabamaCasualty11113ArkansasLife11113ArkansasHealth11114
ArkansasLife11114ArkansasHealth12345ArizonaProperty

I'm trying to write a macro that will compare the license # and state in Sheet1 to the license # and state in Sheet2. If it matches, append the contents of Column C to the corresponding row in Sheet1.

Here's the thing...Sheet2 contains the entries for all licenses in the company (so this table is HUGE). And there are multiple entries for each state license # (notice how there's two entries above for AK license # 11111 - one for the Property line and one for the Casualty line.

After my macro is run, I want Sheet1 to show all the lines-of-authority on a single line. So if I ran my macro on the above example, after it's run I would have this in Sheet1:

COLUMN ACOLUMN BCOLUMN
C11111AlaskaProperty Casualty11112AlabamaProperty Casualty11113
ArkansasLife Health11114ArkansasLife Health

Excel 2010 :: Macro Based Search Function Using Data From 2 Cells

Mar 15, 2012

I have been using a macro to search and highlight customer addresses for me, however I have changed my worksheet and now have the addresses in two columns instead of one (D for the numbers, E for street names) for sorting purposes.

What I would like to do is either; find a way to search using data from 2 cells to get a result, or have multiple results highlight and popup.

Using: Excel 2010

Code:
Sub SEARCH_FUNCTION()
Set FoundCell = Sheets("Route").Cells.find(What:=Sheets("Intro").Range("G15"), LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False)
If Not FoundCell Is Nothing Then

Search IF Row Of Data (multiple Cells) Contains Specific Text

Mar 21, 2013

I'm building an inventory report based upon a daily report downloaded from a website. The downloaded report changes from day-to-day. All of the data I need remains there, but the location of the columns changes, with the exception of "BOL". I need to sort all of this data in a macro. I have most of my macro figured out, but I'm having trouble with one "sort". I need the data to be sorted FIRST by whether or not the 4th column contains "Clear" or "Dyed". I have the next two sorts already coded, based on SPOT vs Contract and then numerically by column A. But I cannot find macro coding or an excel formula (either would work) that reliably searches the 2nd column for the word "Clear". I have tried different combinations of IFERROR, FIND, SEARCH, IF, ISNUM, etc. in hopes of writing a new adjacent column containing the values "Clear" and "Dyed". I have found many combinations that work if I search only the correct cell. But when I extend the range to search through ~26 cells in one row, they all fail. Below is a (small) example of what I start with and what I want to end with. I've also included my current relevant Sorting code in my macro.

Search Workbook For Cells That Meet Multiple Criteria And Return Results From Rows

Jun 28, 2013

I would like to perform a search on only the worksheets listed in a worksheet titled table of contents. I would like to use multiple criteria for this search and send only the unique results to a worksheet titled results. Each worksheet listed in the table of contents has a cell address for each heading that I would like to extract data from the same column. The attached workbook example shows the data that I would like to collect when I search for cells that begin with "AB" and cells that begin with "CD". I collected this data by copy and pasting all the data from each worksheet into the results page and then applying filters and advanced filter to remove duplicates. This method does not work well for the original workbook as the data is quite extensive.

Excel 2010 :: VBA Code To Search Multiple Columns And Delete Any Duplicate Cells (not Rows)

Jun 12, 2014

My Excel program (Excel 2010) currently has several columns and each column looks for and pulls data from a specific file on my computer. Then I need to delete any duplicate data entries, count the number of unique entries and track the changes through a chart. I have everything done except I cannot figure out (or find on the internet) a way to search in multiple columns (more than 2) and delete just the duplicate cells. I want to delete the cells in a way where there is one left. For example if the code 12gf is duplicated three time, I want to be left with one 12gf (it doesnt matter what column the original one is left in). Additionally, column length changes and they are not sorted. I have attempted to attach an image of an example file below.

Link Search Box With VLookup To Provide Search Result

Jul 15, 2012

What i have so far is:
-3 Sheets (Sheet1 - Search, Sheet2 - Data, Sheet3 - Result)
-Sheet1 has a userform ready to link up - this opens up when workbook and worksheet is activated.
-Sheet2 has some example data to search - the search is for column 1 (see attachment)
-Sheet3 has a template ready for the data to be pasted to.

I would like the search result is column 1 to copy the data from columns 1 to 7 to sheet3.

I want the template/layout to remain after the pasting of results. (everything protected from editing, if possible).

Once finished (ie go back to sheet1, i want the data from sheet3 to be cleared.)

Using IS Number And Search Function

Jul 9, 2014

I am trying to workout a formula to look-up and categorize data from a bank statement, without having to complete manually monthly.

So far I have a formula that returns the amount spent, but would need an extra column and separate table for each category.

IF(OR(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(" "&$G$3:$G$11&" "," "&A2&" "))),B2,0) where

Instead of returning B2, I would like to return a value from the table in column H3:H11 that corresponds with G2:G11, as shown below.

ColumnG ColumnH
Aldi Food
woolworths Food
Coles Food
saint Nicholas School
Blooms Medicines, toiletries, hairdressing, personal items
vodafone telephone

So for example if Aldi is in the text in A2, then I would like to return food ( from a lookup table similar to above) into the column where my formulae is ( say F2).

Search Function Within Formula?

I'm having trouble finding the correct way to use this formula. Basically, I need the formula to populate what is in another cell, minus any apostrophe's ( ' ) that are in the text. Sometimes the text contains the apostrophe and other times it does not. I just want whatever text is in the cell to populate, whether it contains an apostrophe or not.

Here is what I've been using so far, but it only produces a value if there is an apostrophe. If there isn't an apostrophe in the text, nothing populates.
