VBA Extract Anagrams From List
Say I had a list of words, all 9 letters long and I wanted to find all the words that had anagrams of themselves (e.g. ISOPTERAN - PATRONISE) and then list them separately as a new list.

I have tried all sorts of Excel spreadsheet solutions, but I always hit a dead end.

Can anyone write some code that I could add to a module that would accomplish this? The logic would go something like this:

Start with first word, check that word against all the words in the list (column of words), if it is an anagram with another word (e.g. ISOPTERAN - PATRONISE), then both words would be extracted and pasted in a new list for the first occurrence, if while still checking the first word in the list against the remaining words it found a second match, only the second word found would be extracted and pasted in the new list. After the first word was checked against all the words in the list the second word would be checked. Then the third, etc. until the whole list was checked.

VBA Function - Extract Number(s) In String
My knowledge of functions is pretty limited, or negligible to be honest. I require a function to extract numbers from each cell in a selected range.


cells contain the following data:

cell 1: xxxxxx 45,59
cell 2: x xxxxx xx 6,45,27
cell 3: x xxxx 28

were x represents text

I need to loop through each cell and extract each of the numbers and list them in a separate range. If applied to the above range of cells the function would show the below in the ouput range. Each number in its own cell.

Extract Hourly Data
I have an excel work sheet with 2 columns and hundreds of rows. The first column is time in minutes over a number a years and the second is a list of corresponding data readings (numbers). I want to only select on the hour data from the list however I cannot seem to do it. The times vary in the sense that they are not all just 1 minute apart, some are every minute, then there might be a 10 minute gap in data, a few more minutes, then another gap etc.. All I want to be able to do is to select all the on the hour data from the list and its corresponding data value.

Extract Data From A List
I have some code that is importing data from a text file that contains ~35,000 line items and is ~50 columns wide (this part of the code is working fine).

Once the file has been imported, I need to copy certain line items to a sheet called “output”. The code would be something like this if reading line by line:

If the value in row x, column 5 (it is always in the 5th column) in “AccountList” then
copy entire row and to next empty row in sheet(“output”)

The “AccountList” is separate sheet with a list of account numbers in column A with ~250 items.

I am not sure if the code to extract this data should occur while I am importing the data or if I should do it after and run through the data again.

Compare Workbooks And Extract Data
I have 2 workbooks containg about 600 names and the serial number of the computer they are using. One I keep so I know who has what machine. The other is created automatically by a service we subscribe to.
This workbook is loaded with errors. Machine costs being charged to the wrong people.

They both contain last name, first name and serial number. Although not in the same columns. With formulas, I have been able to take the serial number from the service.xls and find that serial number in the inventory.xls.

The ultimate goal is this:
Take serial number from service.xls and compare it to inventoryxls.
If it exist, put the first and last name of the user from inventory.xls onto the service.xls sheet.
If it does not exist, then put "does not exist"

Extract From A List If A Cell Has Data In It
This will get kind of complicated just a heads up.. I will try to take it in phases.... Without actually uploading my true sheet I will do my best to give a representation of what I'm trying to accomplish. Basically I will have Lists for the Year by Month. In each month the list will compile a list of problems and there corresponding data for each problem. Most of the problems will be internal, however some will be due to external (a supplier). When this occurs the suppliers name will be input into one of the columns. I want to beable to pull out the suppliers from each month and then sort them in order from top offenders to minor offenders by "QTY"

See the attached example sheet. That should give a better understanding of what I need to do.. I am not sure if this can be done with worksheet functions so I posted it under the Programming thread.

Using A Macro To Extract And Rearrange Data?
I have a big collection of spreadsheets that are all laid out in the same fashion: from A2 down are the names of different individuals (one name per row). Column titles (from B1 right) are the names of unique qualifications that these individuals possess. In the cell where a row and column intersects is the date at which this qualification was awarded. If this doesn’t make total sense, I’ve attached a very basic version of this to the post (Sheet 1) – although the spreadsheets I’m working with have hundreds of individuals and scores of qualifications, rather than just a couple!

This data needs exporting/rearranging into a format that’s recognisable by another piece of software that we use. In this format, the data is split into three columns: the person’s name, a possessed qualification and the date it was awarded. This means that a single individual’s name may have multiple rows, since a different qualification will be present in each row for that person. An example of this layout is shown on Sheet 2 of the attachment.

a. identify these cycles using the column b data and seperate out or return the date/time values for cycle start and end
b. report the max value in column b for each cycle

The max value of b data will allow me to know which product was in the tank. I will then know the date/times for each time a particular product was made. I then want to extract the data from the rest of the columns for the specified dates

Using If, Extract Data From One Worksheet And Place In Another
I am trying to create a basic order history in excel from orders generated on our limited ERP system. I have exported the data required and imported to excel, but due to the export limitations, I can only export certain fields at a time.
This means that I have to create three sheets for all the data I require.

The first sheet has the bulk of the data and is now nicely collumned. However, I cannot get both the customer code and full customer name on the same sheet due to the aforementioned limitations.
Sheet 1 has customer code and other data, sheet 2 has customer code plus full customer name.

I have created a collumn for the customer name on sheet 1 (A3) next to the customer code (A2)

Basically, what I am trying to get it to do is as follows:
In "A3" I need to create a formula that states that if A2 contains a certain customer code, then look in sheet 2, match the code and place the full customer name for that code. Bearing in mind that we have over 395 customer codes in use, so asking for a specific code to lookup would be as time consuming as entering the codes manually.

'Change all formulas to Values only

Define Then Extract Data Recalculate Totals

Each row is one order with the information of what is required including the data.

Some orders need to be dispatched on the day before (these orders are standard and are always dispatched the day before.)

I would like a solution that would let me define the orders dispatched the day before, remove them and the total from the original day and recalculate the data. There is a week’s worth of data that is sent from the customer and the orders may be duplicated during the week but need to be fulfilled.

Attached is also an example of how the data could be sorted

Nine Elms Sheet the data would be imported from the customer,
Criteria would define the orders that are dispatched early,
The pre tabs would have the orders found that meet the criteria set and totalled (pre Monday would be Tuesdays dispatched early)
The day tabs would have the other orders totalled after the early orders have been removed.
