Using Wildcard With Search And Replace

Jan 21, 2009

I have numerous formulas that use a macro with an indirect cell reference, for example:
INDIRECT(macro(A21))

I am moving these formulas to a different workbook and I need them to still refer to items in the old sheet. I accomplish this by using this formula:

INDIRECT(CONCATENATE("OtherSheet.xls!",macro(A21)))
This works. However, I need to do a global search and replace for all of these formulas without deleting my indirect cell reference. I could replace
macro
with
CONCATENATE("OtherSheet.xls!",macro
but that would leave me short a ).
Is there a way to use a wildcard to accomplish this? It does not seem that replace
macro(*)
with
CONCATENATE("OtherSheet.xls!",macro(*))

Search Using Wildcard In Macro

Dec 29, 2011

I have a spreadsheet where there are lines of different Wage Types but only certain combinations are needed. For example I have Pay Area 1234 which needs all wage types except those beginning with a 9.

To do this I have set up Sheet1 to look like this:

12341
12342
12343
12344
12345
12346
12347
12348

and not 12349 as I do not require this type.

The problem here is I need to add a wildcard to the end of these so it finds anything that starts with 12341 etc.

Sheet1 contains the personal details of employees and I have concatenated the Payroll Area and Wage type in column D.

Code:

Sub deleterows()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set MySheet = Sheets("data")
LR = MySheet.Cells(Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUp).Row
For i = LR To 2 Step -1

[Code]...

Vlookup With Wildcard Search

Oct 28, 2008

picture this.

Cell A1 = xyz3
Cell B1 = 5
Cell C1 = xyz3-hgfe-56f

I need to do a vlookup on C1 in range A1:B1 that will return B1 if C1 contains the string in A1. I've tried using the TRUE variable in the vlookup formula which does not require an exact match. This works for about 80% of my data but is not 100% accurate. Of course I've got a long list of data ... not just the 3 cells.

Search For The Character- Not Wildcard

Nov 20, 2006

I need to get rid of the questions marks in the text on my sheet, but am unable to get my VBA code to search for an actual question mark and not the wildcard. I'm using the replace function as follows:

wsReport. Cells = wsReport.Cells.Replace("?", "")

1. What's the trick to searching for wildcard characters?

2. Is there a slicker way to do this?

Search On Multiple Entries Using Wildcard

Jul 29, 2014

I'm trying to perform a search of over 15,000 entries using a wildcard. Sheet1 is a list of streets in the county where I live, and I would like to be able to type a part of the name that will return every instance of that name appearing.

I found a code which i have tried to adapt, but it is not working.

[Code] ....

The item being searched will be entered into TextBox1, and I'm guessing that the error I am receiving is in the .AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=TextBox1"*" line of code. This is the original sample I found onlne:

[Code] .....

where they were only looking for the letters "GB".

VLookup In Array Search With Wildcard Characters

Jul 10, 2012

I have a sheet with Names in it. I need to look those names up and find which org they belong to. The problem is the the names have many characters after them, and many names belong to a few orgs, with a the rest belonging to many orgs. (See below)

I have been trying to get a Vlookup to work, but since it can't go left, it won't look up the orgs that don't own at least three names. And I can't get the search to work on the names.

Names:
WSGHG1-8410YFH

WSSMXG-8401B8T

NBSMXG-0310V6R

NBXG-0310V6V

Search For Pattern Of Numbers / Letters And Wildcard

Dec 19, 2012

I would like to search for a certain pattern that appears in a cell. For example, I have certain cells that begin with a 7 digit project code (Ex: "1234567 - Project Red"). I was planning to use an IF inside a FOR loop and then do an action when I find the cell with the pattern. I thought I remember it being something like Format(########*) so that I have the wildcard on the end since there is more than just the numbers. how to make other patterns work such as Number-Letter-Number or Capital-Lowercase-Capital

Can Wildcard Search Asterisk Be Tuned Off When Using VBA Code?

Dec 26, 2012

I am trying to run a routine in VBA that will Search for a Part-No. that normally contains asterisks. It is giving me bad positive Search results due to the coding looking at the (*) asterisk's as a wildcard character.

The following Part-No.'s are located in cells (C11:C16):
9L3Z*17757*BCP
6C3Z*16138*AACP
AE5Z*16138*B
AE5Z*17E811*CF
AE5Z*17E811*F
AE5Z*17E810*F

Part-No. to be Searched for:
AE5Z*17E811*F

When the below code is run, the incorrect Part-No. 'AE5Z*17E811*CF' is found in cell (C14) rather than the correct Part-No. found in Cell (C15).

Code:
'The following 2 lines are defaulted for ease of coding
pNumb = "AE5Z*17E811*F"
Range("C11", "C16").Select

[Code] ......

Retrieving Nth Results From Index Match Using Wildcard Search Term

Jun 9, 2014

I am building somewhat of a rudimentary search engine that looks for a name, address or unique identifier, using an Index Match formula that searches with a wild card:

=INDEX(Name,MATCH("*"&F3&"*",Name,0))

"Name": is the defined name for column C on a separate sheet.
F3: is "search field"

The current formula (above), only returns the first match. The source data is only 927 lines so not overly large. I would like to have an additional page that will show the potential results from the wildcard search via a formula. Therefore needing results; 2, 3, 4, 5 etc. from the Index Match. I have searched high and low for solutions but I have found none in regards to retrieving multiple results from a wildcard search, only on a specific term.

Replace #VALUE With <nul> On SEARCH

Apr 30, 2009

=IF(SEARCH($C$2,'705334-0707-0408'!C3)>0,ROWS($1:2),"")

Subsequent data selection also results in #VALUE...

=IF(ROWS($1:1)>COUNT($A$5:$A$1000),"",INDEX('705334-0707-0408'!B:B,SMALL($A$5:$A$1000,ROWS($1:1))+1))

In sheet one I have a list of bank transactions. I want to find all transactions matching a specific search string (in $C$2). $C$2 is compared with data in column B of sheet 705334-0707-0408.

How do I get a nul value in column A (=IF(SEARCH($C$2,'705334-0707-0408'!C3)>0,ROWS($1:2),"")). I've tried to compare the result to #VALUE, and tried NOT and a few other combinations, but can't get it to work.

I cant use the contents of a different column; there are only date, details and amount. None of date or amount influence, or are influenced by the details in column B.

VBA - Search And Replace For File

Oct 1, 2012

I have created a file which generates a file name from information entered in certain cells

Code:
Sub SaveAsExample() On Error GoTo Err1:
Dim FName As String
Dim FPath As String

FPath = "O:PHC BomsDropbox - Stage & Gate"
FName = Sheets("Control Sheet").Range("B1").Text & " " & Sheets("Control Sheet").Range("B2").Text
ThisWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=FPath & "" & FName

Err1:
Exit Sub

End Sub
Control sheet B1 = SG999
Control sheet B2 = Product Description

EG - SG999 Prod Description.xlsm

Now here's the problem -

Very occasionally some users may edit the Prod Description & then need to re-save

So i need to create some code which looks for an element of the current file name in a Directory (O:PHC BomsDropbox - Stage & Gate) EG "SG999" (Which could be 5 or 6 characters in length (if we go over 1000)

Delete this file, replaces it with the new file with the edited information.

Search And Replace Special Characters

Oct 14, 2009

I have a worksheet that I produced from optical character recognition, and there are a lot of funky characters that I need to get rid of. One is a line break or carraige return (I assume it's the same character that I could insert by entering ALT+ENTER). How do I search for this special character to replace it? How do I identify what that invisible character is?

Search And Replace In First Part ONLY Of Cell

Jul 2, 2014

Ringholm 8 G R hem.ag Bavik Postl 115 O Amtervik
Rinman K H B dir Johannebergsg 34 Goteborg S
Risberg L kass Mitandersfors Bogen

In some cases the letters in the beginning of the cells have been misread as a number (above S as 8), so I want to search and replace those numbers with the correct letter without changing the correct numbers at the end of the cells to letters too. Is there any way to write a search-and-replace code in VBA that will only implement the search-and-replace in (for example) the first five letter-spaces of the cell?

Unwanted Character, Can Not Search And Replace

Dec 18, 2007

I have a sheet that I often have to edit and import into SQL database.

I have no control over the format of the sheet given to me and it seems that something has changed causing me the following problem.

When I try to import the Data itís showing ten times as many items than are actually there.

The problem I think is in a text column. Iíve tested this by using an old column from a previous sheet and pasting this into the new sheet and I can import it ok.

What I seem to have is a rectangular box character but Iím not sure what it is.
I can copy and past it into Notepad as it is, but pasted into Word it seems to be a carriage Return.

So whether itís an actual charter or not Iím not sure.

Are there any tools out there so I can hover over characters in Excel to see what it is! So at least I can be sure what Iím trying to Search and Replace?

Search And Replace Text In A Column

Sep 14, 2009

I want to replace all blank cells in column A with the word "BLANK" but my problem is that I need to tell Excel to stop searching for blank cells in column A once and only once column A is equal to the last data row in the column named "Product Number". I tried this macro but, naturally, it replaces all the empty cells in the WHOLE COLUMN.

I will always have a header column in row 1. The data is below that (data will always start at row 2).


Columns("A:A").Select
Selection.Replace What:="", Replacement:="BLANK", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
ReplaceFormat:=False
How can I change this so that the find/replace macro searches all the way down equal to the last data row in the "Product Number" column?

Below are 2 examples. Example 1 is pre macro and example 2 is post macro.
