Excel 2003 :: Find And Replace Missing The Ability To Replace Values?

Feb 5, 2009

This problem has come up fairly frequently lately, and I'm not sure how to fix it, or if this is by design...but in Excel 2003 I can't seem to do a "Find and Replace" based on the value of a cell. I can do a find, based on cell value, but the moment I change to the replace tab, the "values" and "comments" are missing from the "look in" dropdown.

I've only noticed this when I'm trying to replace on a filtered list, so I'm not sure if that is part of the issue.

Perhaps an alternative way of arriving at the same goal. Basically I have a worksheet with a number of filtered columns. They are filtered just right, using custom filtering, and so I do not want to undo the filters. In some columns I have formulas that are returning #VALUE! errors. I'd like to replace all of these cells with NA.

Find And Replace To Not Replace Characters Found As Wildcards?

Jul 2, 2013

I recently became owner of a spreadsheet with some issues, and I am trying to make it useful. Each row has a URL of a blog post, and I want to extract the date from it (which is present in each URL) while getting rid of the rest of the URL. I was able to get rid of everything up to the year (which comes first), but then the URL continues, for example, 2013/05/16/the-rest-of-the-url/ and I would like to just have 2013/05/16 remain.

I am trying to use find and replace with the find box reading 2013/??/??/*/ and replacing it with 2013/??/?? which effectively erases everything else in the url, but leaves ?? instead of the numbers. Is there any way to have it so that it keeps whatever was in the original box?

Catching Errors When Using The Find / Replace Function / Replace All

Apr 20, 2006

Need assistance with the code for catching errors when using the find / replace function in excel? In particular, I am trying to write code to break to an error message when the value or string searched for isn't found in the find / replace. At the minute I have just copied the standard code using a macro and all this does is return a message box saying X entries replaced.

Replace #N/A In Lookup With Custom Text

Jun 9, 2008

looking up a value in a table.

So I have this value on one worksheet: Example 1

Now, I have a table on the second worksheet with a bunch of id's in list of 1-100. Now, each product has one of those id's and also has a product name.

So, right now, I am trying to figure out what the product name would be if my id specified is a valid id in the table on worksheet 2. Now, if the specified id isn't a valid id in the table (for example 105) I need the cell the say, "No Product".

Here is my if function: =IF(what do I put here,VLOOKUP($A$1,Table1,2), "Product Not Found")

So what do I put for the logical test to find out if the id is a valid id in the table that i'm looking up the id's.

The bottom line: If you get an error like #Value! or #N/A, or any of those types of errors, how can you rename the cell so say something else instead of that.

Replace Some Words In Cell With Those From Lookup Table

May 29, 2009

We have a list of typed information (see attached) in which we would like to remove some words and simply replace with a space "". In addition to this: Unfortunately, folks tend to mistype or misspell words, add extra digits, etc, and for those mistakes we would like to replace them with corrections. Therefore, for this problem, we have a Replacement Table and the Subject Data, an example of which is shown in the attachment. I have posted a slightly similar problem on Ozgrid recently:

Replace Words In Cell Matching Those In A List
and in that link, the following UDF was proposed:

Function ReplaceIfInList(rList As Range, rCell As Range, _
strReplacement As String) As String
Dim rLoop As Range

If rCell = "" Then Exit Function
For Each rLoop In rList
If ReplaceIfInList = vbNullString Then
ReplaceIfInList = Replace(rCell, rLoop, strReplacement)
ReplaceIfInList = Replace(ReplaceIfInList, rLoop, strReplacement)
End If
Next rLoop
End Function

This worked great, but at the time i posted this, I did not have the foresight to anticipate the flexibility in what the replacement text would be (the above code always replaces with a ""). THIS new Post is asking the following:

Is there a way to define (or modify the above) User Defined Formula that will analyze the words typed in a cell, which are typically separated by spaces (or on accident, multiple spaces), and essentially use the Replacement Table as a reference for what word to replace with?

Find And Replace ....

Jun 9, 2009

I was wondering if it is possible to do this unique find and replace that is explained below.

I have many columns with data from our database. I have one column that has my html layout in it. I want to find within the html text data and replace it with data from another column for that row.

Example: We have [[manufacturer]] in the html area that we want to replace with data from our column called Manufacturer. So, it will replace the text in the html named [[Manufacturer]] with that rows Manufacturer data we have.

Is that possible to do?

Find & Replace In VBA

Nov 15, 2006

I am trying to find and replace #N/A from a formula (link to another sheet) with nothing in the cell, using VBA.

Using this code it will do the first "find"
Cells.Find(What:="#N/A", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt _
:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _
True, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
Trying this
Cells.Replace What:="#N/A", Replacement:=" ", LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:=True, _
LookIn:= is highlighted and I get a "named argument not found"
Don't understand that because LookIn:=xlValues works in the first code.

I did try and place After:=ActiveCell,before this, but that does not work. I Get the same error.

I have more then one cell with the #N/A which I would like to get rid of. I want this to work only on this one sheet. The other sheet that the formula is pulling from does have #N/A, and that is okay, I need it there.

Find And Replace ..?

Mar 2, 2007

I have a list of sales associates that are assigned numbers. For example, John Doe is 1022. The data I have to work with only shows his number 1022 but for my reports management wants the name John Doe. I have about 60 sales associates and have a VB code that 'finds and replaces'. The code is huge. It has slowly grown out of hand, with more sales associates added daily. I also have 22 sheets in one workbook with specific columns to search for the numbers to replace with the names.

This is what I would like to do. Have a sheet named associates, as more associates are added I would just have to add their name and number. Have two columns with headers column A - Associates column B Associate #. Name ranges for the two columns and write a code that says look in the sheet associate, at named range 'numbertoname' and if the current sheet 'total sales' I am in has the number 1022 in column C replace it with the name John Doe. It seems like it should be easy but.......I have tried and tried today.

Find And Replace *

Sep 15, 2006

I am facing a strange problem with Find and Replace function of Excel. I converted a PDF document into a Word document. I copied the tables in the Word document to an Excel document. As the data had many * characters, which I did not want, I used Find and Replace function to get rid of them. However, to my surprise, two things were happening.

1.When I tried to replace * in a cell with Construction revenue ********************** , it was deleting all the contents of the cell.
2.When I tried to find all the cells with * , it was selecting cells even without *

I tried various things like changing the format, pasting only values..etc, but nothing worked. Finally I had to use the Replace function of VBA to do the task. For further analysis I am attaching my Excel file with that data.

Lookup Formula: Find The Longitude And Latitude Data From My "lookup" Sheet

Jan 28, 2009

In my workbook I have multiple sheets but I'm attaching a very simple workbook to demonstrate what I'm trying to accomplish. In my "Lookup" tab/sheet. I want to have known Latitude and Longitude data that will exist in columns A&B. Columns C & D will have address numbers and Street Name. I would like my lookup formula to find the longitude and latitude data from my "lookup" sheet, when the matching address information is typed in, in my 2009 sheet. I have to keep the street numerics and street name separate on this worksheet as well. I believe I'll need two separate lookup formulas as I need these formulas to start in cell G4 & H4 in my "GeoCoding1" sheet. Is it possible to have four columns of data to be viewed in a lookup formula? I tried this formula in cell G4 (GeoCoding1 sheet)

Find And Replace Not Working ...

Sep 11, 2008

I'm using Excel 2007 and trying to replace about 2000 commas with full stops. I want to use find and replace but keep getting a message saying that Excel cannot find the data I'm searching for.

Excel help suggests I haven't clicked on "find" before clicking "replace" but I did.
I've tried highlighting the column in which I want to make the replacements, but same message.

Also tried highlighting nothing, same message.

Tried copying and pasting the whole thing into a new file, but same message.

Find / Replace Two Different Chars

Mar 26, 2009

Assume someone typed the hereunder date ad TEXT.

The Formula bar shows: ="01/01/2009"
The cell presents: 01/01/2009

I need to remove the equation sign as well the two inverted-commas.

I am familiar with the "Text to Column" feature, the use of SUBSTITUTE Function, a short macro and also the Find&Replace is also a good idea but, as far as I understand,
it must be run Twice(!)

I am looking for a way to use Find&Replace in "One! shot" - meaning, to put the TWO different(!) characters [ the '=' and the " ] in the 'find what' window,
leaving the 'replace with' window empty.

I know that something similar to that can be done in a "Word" document - but can it be accomplished in Excel?

Look, Find, And If True, Replace?

May 14, 2009

I have two groups of numbers. The first group is x amount of rows and each row has 6 numbers. The second group is x amount of rows and each row is 7 numbers.

Each number from the first group needs to check to see if it exists in the second group. If it does exist, the cell should change to a highlighted cell, or switch to an 'X' or something else that identifies it has been matched. Note: Numbers may be duplicated in both groups. Is there an easy way to do this, or will it involve programming? I'm attaching an example of the "group" setup.

Find And Replace In Formulas

Jul 19, 2009

I have various formulas (such as: =(D3-$E$3)/$E$3 )
which continues for each row (IE next row 3 is replaced with 4 etc)

I have made som errors when I made the formulas and therefore I have the following questions:

1. Is it possible to find and replace all E's with another letter (F in my case). I haven't been able to resolve this, when it has to be done inside formulas?
The optimal would be if I could set 'Display formulas' under tools, and find and replace in the formulas displayed.

2. Is there a smart way of swapping D3 with E3 for all formulas? (So the result will be: =($E$3-D3)/$E$3 and etc for all formulas)

Macro For Find & Replace

Feb 10, 2009

I have a workbook (materials forecasting) that automatically pulls from another workbook (production schedule).

The materials forecasting workbooks are named in regards to the current Monday (ie 02-02-09.xls, 02-09-09.xls, etc). The production schedules are named in accordance with the financial periods and weeks, ie PD1WK1.xls, PD1WK2.xls, PD1WK3.xls, PD1WK4.xls, PD2WK1.xls, etc

The materials forecasting sheet looks two weeks out.

EXAMPLE (pretend that today is the first day of PD1WK1)

Cell C1 will reference PD1WK1.xls
Cell C2 will reference PD1WK2.xls

Each week I copy the old materials forecasting sheet and rename it to the current week (ie I take 02-02-09.xls and rename it to 02-09-09.xls). I have a bunch of macros set up to move my deliveries up a week and what not. One macro I would like to set up, however, is that by putting a value in a cell the find and replace macro will work.

Cell A1 will reference PD1WK2.xls
Cell A2 will reference PD1WK3.xls
Cell C1 will reference PD1WK1.xls
Cell C2 will reference PD1WK2.xls

Then I would have the macro find all instances of whatever value is in cell C2 and replace it with whatever value is in cell A2. Then likewise fore C1 and A1 respectively. (If you think about what I am doing here... all I am doing is moving the schedule up one week so that I am forecasting using the right schedule).

I can manually do this but I would prefer a macro based on a simple user input for when people fill in for me.
