VBA Find And Next Record Function

how to make the << and >> buttons as well as the find button work on this form. Here is the code for the >> (next Record) button. I think if I can understand how one of them is supposed to work I can do the rest. I have been trying for days to figure it out, and even with RoyUK's help I still can not get it to work....

Using The SUM Function To Record Weekly Sales
I would like to have a set of cells that add up all the sales within a given week. I know how to do this simply for one week, but how do I get Excel to automatically take this function and create the rest for future weeks?

After entering the SUM function in one cell, I click and drag on the box to try to get Excel to correctly input the functions in the next cells (like how Excel will correctly input the next date, week, or month). But Excel doesn't do it correctly.

Now() As Record Id; What Record ID Schemes Are Fequently Employed Besides Date/time
I seek advice on using the value of NOW() as a record ID in an address book program. Question #1: Do Excel developers often use a record ID? Question #2: What record ID schemes are fequently employed besides date/time? I have decided to create an Excel address book as an exercise to increase my knowledge of VBA, and also as a useful application for work.

I realize that a record ID is not essential in Excel in the way that it is essential in Access, but I feel the need to have some unique ID associated with each address, so that I may have different worksheets, with data related to a given Contact, sort and manipulate it, if necessary, but have the record ID as a way to restore the relationship of rows to a given Contact, and also, as a handy way to examine the data in the date/time sequence in which it was entered. I have experimented with the following code, to assure myself that I can access the number returned by the NOW() function, manipulate it as a string, and format in various ways if necessary.

Dim n As Double
n = Now()
sn = Str(n)
p = InStr(sn, ".")
first = Left(sn, (p - 1))
l = Len(sn)
d = l - p
S = Mid(sn, (p + 1), d)....................

Auto Copy Template On Record Entry & Link Set Cells Back New Record Entry Sheet
I am looking to create a macro that will create a new sheet when data is added on a summary sheet. Example.

1. Summary sheet called "Variations" contains columns that will contain the information needed for new sheet (Columns A to D)

2. When data is entered on "Variations" sheet: Column B, then macro automatically creates new sheet renamed to e.g. VO1 (Number used on "Variations" tab) and is a copy of "Master" tab.

3. Data entered in Column A to D on "Variations" tab is automatically entered onto new sheet created (e.g VO1). Shown is blue on attached file. Additional data is updated on "VO1" sheet and this then links back to "Variations" tab

Macro To Print Record # To Record#
I'm trying to find a macro that will run allowing the user to select a 'starting record number' and a 'finishing record number' when printing.

I have a spreadsheet that feeds from a master list in excel, from over 5000 records.

I need to print the s'sheet with any given indivdual record's information at any given time.

Individual prints are fine. However if I wanted to print from record number 1500 to record number 3000 it would take me all day.

Is there a way I can set up a macro so an option form pops up? allowing selection of "From record" and "to Record" ?

2007 Right Function With Embeded Find Function
I have a range of cells, for this example I will use 2.

Using the following formula: =SUM(RIGHT(E17,FIND("/",E17)))+SUM(RIGHT(E18,FIND("/",E18)))

This bring back an #VALUE! Error as the second part of the formula keeps picking up "/9" however the first part works fine, displaying "170"

Record Macro Gives Message "Unable To Record"
Im trying to record a macro that will enter a formula in a cell each time I run the macro

I know I can write the formula in a simpler way, but I was asked to make it like this.

The problem is that when I enter the formula in the cell while recording. I got a message: "Unable to record" so this part can't be recorded

Getting Error "Unable To Record" When Record A Macro
This problem seemed to revolve around "digital signing" with further macro changes done from a different machine (without the proper certificate). Excel warns of the problem and then "unsigns" the project.

I've got a problem with spreadsheets that I've been working on. Now, when I tell it to record a macro, I get the macro name, shortcut assignment dialog box and then an error "Unable to record." After "Ok"ing that dialog box, the normal recording macro dialog comes up. Also, lo and behold, there will not be a macro recorded.

I've got no protected cells or sheets and it doesn't matter what security level is set. It is a "signed" macro but I can take off the signature and still have the problem. I checked for "Help - About" for deactivated modules and there was none.

Using The Find Function
So I have 2 worksheets. One has a list of Player Names. The other has a list of Plays that any of these players could have been involved in (or they may not have been involved in).

I am trying to use the find function to find anyone of those player names from sheet 1 in each of the plays. My functions currently stands at

=FIND(('Dinas Roster'!$A$2:$A$21),I6,1)

Where Dinas Roster is the list of players and I6 is a particular play and would go to I7, I8....which are the plays,

This isn't working as I am getting all #Value. If I just do it for 1 Player (i.e. Dinas Roster'!$A$2) it works and returns a number on each line that player shows up in...

I'm looking for something simple that will let me type in a 5 digit numeric value and then when it finds the associated value, will add +1 to the associated col/row.

Such as, type 11111 in the box, click the button...When it finds the data on say row 8, col A it will then add +1 to row 8, col G.

I'm not sure of the best way to do this...I'm not exactly new to excel, but it has been a VERY long time (10 years!) since I've used it in this aspect...Just trying to help a friend out.

Find Function In Vba
I have this source data that has different types of currencies in it. It will be processed by a marco. But Before i do the processing, i would like excel to check if all currencies in the source data have had their rates determined by the user in another worksheet. This is the code i am using. However, when the marco trys to find rates that has not been determined (cannot be found in remarks sheets), it will just skip the msgbox code.

Find = Cells.Find(What:=local_currency, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _

If Find = True And ActiveCell.Next.Next.Value <> "" Then

Find Value By Date Within Function
I am comparing two series of data, a daily series and a weekly series, to make calculations. The "F" column is daily data and the "I" is weekly.

The formula I am using is:
=IF(AND( SUM(I58:I62)<F62,I63>F63),B64,0)

The data I need to use in the "F" column in place of "F62" is always on a Friday.

I had taken "F62" which is the preceding working day's data. In fact I need to take the preceding Fridays data in column "F" as I need to compare the week to week trends. Due to bank holidays I cannot count back form F62 to get the data. There is always end of week data recorded on Fridays even though it may be a bank holiday.

I have the dates in the "H" column. Can a date reference be used in the formula to find the Friday data in column "F"? Or is there another solution to this problem?

Find Function Debug
What I'm doing in this script is taking a whole bunch of variables and pasting them into a seperate sheet "Checks" which will construct a cashiers check. The problem is where I've highlighted the code in red. At that point I have copied the Vendor name to the clipboard - I then go to the "Vendor Info" page and search for that Vendor name. If that name exists on the page it works perfectly...moving one column to the right, grabbing the Address Line 1 and dropping it into the check, then going back and grabbing the Address Line 2 and dropping it into the check. The problem is when that Vendor name doesn't exist in the "Vendor Info" page...I want it to just paste two blank cells into the check (because I obviously don't have the address info for that Vendor)...but instead it gives me an error:

Convert Mid & Find Function To Vba
I am writing VBA code that dissects a cell which always contains some alphanumeric characters a colon ":", some more characters, another colon ":" and some more characters.

For Example this is what is in my cell "Deposit:93121:Southern California"

what I need is to cut and paste everything that is located after the 2nd colon ":"

Say that my cell is D433 and in non-vba world I can chop off the first part of the cell to the left of the first colon ":" by using the following formula:

=MID(D433, FIND(":",D433)+1,50)

assuming there are less than 50 characters in my cell, which is a safe number, then I cut and pastespecial this cell as values into the same cell and repeat that same formula and voila, what remains in cell D433 is what I am looking for "Southern California"

how can I replicate this surgical process in VBA, is there a way to combine this process in one command on any given target cell?

Find Function Over Two Spreadsheets
I have two spreadsheets, which have over 10,000 entries and I am trying to compare them both for duplicates. I would like to know whether or not there is any VBA coding which will allow me to copy a cell from one spreadsheet and look for it in the other spreadsheet.

The major problem which I am facing is the information which I am trying to look for is constantly changing and therefore is more or less unknown to me. I am hoping for some VBA coding which will allow me to copy whatever is in cell A1 and find it in the other spreadsheet which I have, and then do the same for A2,A3 and so forth.

Match Function To Find Name With Comma
I have a spreadsheet in which I use a match function to find the row a name is on. The name may be listed several times and the name has a comma in it, for example, "Tom, George". I got it to work once, but it doesn't always work. Is it because of the comma or because it is in the lookup several times? It's my understanding the Excel will return the row number for the first time it sees the name in the list, which is what I want.

Find And Copy Between Sheets Using Function
The project is to take an unsorted list from the first worksheet in a workbook, and based on the value in column A, copy the row data to other worksheets. It's just a straight copy of nine columns of data, and could either include or exclude that first column. (Since that value will always be the same on every row, there's no real need to include it except as a quick visual affirmation of which worksheet is being viewed.) The number of rows of data in the first worksheet are unknown, so the range is not fixed; and the number of expected matches are unknown.

I've found all kinds of advice about using a macro (but I can't use a macro, because the workbook will be maintained by someone who has no VB training), or if they do refer to formulas, say nothing more than "use VLOOKUP, or OFFSET and MATCH".

All the Excel Help file and online references I can find only show how to use VLOOKUP to copy data from a single column, as the purpose and design of that function. How is it possible to use VLOOKUP to copy the row of data?

And to copy into a new row for each match?

I can't even find information on whether that function is entered once for each worksheet or whether it has to be copied into each row.

Runtime Error '91" Using Find Function
I have a spreadsheet with a large amount of data, and one thing I need to do is Find the maximum value in a column and then select it. I was originally using an If loop to find it, but I would like to make the code more efficient by using this method. My code is as follows:

Function FindCells()

Dim FindData As Long
Dim Row_Number As Integer


FindData = ActiveSheet.Cells(6, 15).Value
Range("L5:L2000").Find(What:=FindData, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

Row_Number = ActiveCell.Row
ActiveSheet.Cells(2, 14).Value = Row_Number

End Function

This string of code works fine, but it doesn't find the right value. Cell (6, 15) contains the maximum value but excel treats it as a whole number. If I try to change the data type of FindData to double or to string I get a Runtime 91 error. If I change LookAt to xlWhole I get the same error.

Match Function Doesn't Find Values
I've been using a Index and Match Functions to locate values,

What I'm trying to do is as follows:

Column A contains x values and Column B contains another value

A length is entered at the top of the worksheet, when the x value is greater than half the length the values will be mirrored about the centre point.

To do this i'm doing x-(length/2) to give the corresponding value of x on the other side of the length

I can do the If functions etc to sort all this out, but the match function isnt working, see attached, it isn't finding values which are in the list, when i use 0 for exact match, i've tried using 1 but it still isn't finding the correct values.

Find Column Number And Then Use Index Function
I have a database with over 100 products listed across the first row.
Column a has a list of over 500 projects. Across each project various columns are marked with a number depending on how many of each products are being used on that project.
For Example

A B C D E etc.
Products --> X Y Z AA
Proj 1 2 3
Proj 2 1 4 5
Proj 3 2 4

I want to be able to create a report for any given product.
The report could look like,
Product Z
Proj 1 3
Proj 3 2

So I need to lookup the product code across row 1 and determine the column number and then INDEX down that column and find all non blank cells and read the project names from column A.

I am familiar with formulas with INDEX and V/H LOOKUP functions. I am not very good with VBA codes.

Limit The Search Range In FIND() Function
I am currently using the simple code block below to jump to a cell on another sheet based on a user-inputted value to a cell on the current sheet. Although jump is too strong a word at the moment...walk slowly might be more appropriate.

The problem is that the sheet that contains the target cell hosts a very sizable used range and the FIND function can sometimes take almost a minute before finding and focussing on the required cell.

While I do not believe that a search range below that of sheet level for the FIND() function is possible, the cell that I am looking to jump to resides in a one-column, sorted, dynamic named range (=Bookings!JobID) on the target sheet, so I am sure that it must be possible to find and go the target cell in a much quicker timeframe than that being delivered at the moment. Just can't find something suitable at the moment.

Find, Replace Function: Formula Is Too Long

Unable To Get The Find Property Of The Worksheet Function Class
I am using the "Find" in VBA and wanted to test if the value searched for could not be found.

So I get the
error = "Unable to get the find property of the worksheet function class"
When the text cannot be found.

Dim zz As Variant
zz = Application.WorksheetFunction.Find("xx", "Hello", 1)

I also tried
Dim xx as boolean
xx = Application.WorksheetFunction.IsError(Application.WorksheetFunction.Find("xx", "Hello", 10))

But this produced the same error.

Cells.find Function Slower Than Expected Across Several Worksheets
I wrote a custom find function to search for a list of numbers across a bunch of worksheets (6 in total). A cell reference is sent to the function and it basically returns the worksheet name and address for the first occurence, or nothing if not found.

Now I realise that the number of cells that need to be checked is fairly severe across 6 worksheets (finding 65 numbers * 65536 * 256), but this still takes about 1 minute to execute... is that about right? Code was hacked together quickly and is nothing special...

Public Function My_Find(Optional my_range As Range) As String

Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim my_cell As Variant
Dim result As Variant

Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
