VBA With Range() To TRIM() Cell Contents

Jan 27, 2010

I have column headings that come in through a file upload and for some reason some of the column headings(which are in cells in row1) have extra spaces in the middle of them and at the end of the word. This messes up some of my later coding when trying to find specific header names.

Example:
"Location " - has extra 2 spaces at end, should be "Location"
"Read (Only)" - has 3 spaces in middle, should be "Read (Only)"

I came up with this piece of code to quickly correct the bad headers by Trim()'g the contents of each cell, but it's error'g out & not sure how to fix it:


With Range("A1:A24")
.Value = Trim(.Value)
End With
It errors of course on the '.Value' line.

Trim Macro: Trim All Of The Data From Rows 2:30 Removing Any Trailing Spaces After The Last Word In Each Cell

Apr 25, 2007

I have come up with this to Trim all of the data from rows 2:30 removing any trailing spaces after the last word in each cell. The macro takes a couple of minutes to run have I got something wrong that is making it run slowly or does the Trim process just take longer?

Sub TRIM_RANGE()
Dim myRange As Range
Dim myRow As Range
Sheets("CAMPAIGNS_2007").Select
Set myRange = Range("2:30")
If myRange Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
myRange.Replace What:=Chr(160), Replacement:=Chr(32), _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False
For Each myRow In myRange.Columns
If Application. CountA(myRow) > 0 Then
myRow.TextToColumns Destination:=myRow(1), _
DataType:=xlFixedWidth, FieldInfo:=Array(0, 1)
End If
Next myRow
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Referencing A Cell's Contents As Range()

May 14, 2007

I'm trying to figure out the best way to reference a cell's contents as a range in VBA code. So essentially it would be simple like this (except of course this doesn't work)... Range("cell(contents,A1)").Select

I always look in my CD of old forum posts, Mr. Excel articles, Mr. Excel books I have etc. before I break down and ask.

Automatically Clear Contents Of Cell Range

Jan 17, 2013

Is is possible to clear the contents of a cell range if a message box appears stating an error. I have tried the following code but the logic doesn't actually work and am struggling to achieve what I am trying to do.

My code so far is as follows:

Code:

If ActiveSheet.Range("F84") > 0 And ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("PES").Range("D24") = 0 Then _
MsgBox "Your Entitlement is currently 0", vbCritical, "Error"
ActiveSheet.Range("K84:T84").ClearContents

The message box appears fine if the IF statement is true but if IF statement is false, the cell range of K84 to T84 on the current sheet is still cleared..

Combine Cell Contents With Named Range?

Aug 8, 2013

I have a cell with a drop-down menu where the user can select "Plant A" or "Plant B".

I have a cell below that with a sales number, which comes from a different tab where the sales number is input and has a named range.

For example, the input tab has a named range called "Plant A Sales" and a value of 1234, and a named range called "Plant B Sales" with a value of 5678.

I want to put a formula in a cell that will look at the cell where the drop-down menu is and will populate that cell with the correct data for the selected plant.

So if the user selects "Plant A" from the drop-down menu, the cell will show "1234". If they then select "Plant B" from the drop-down menu, the cell will show "5678".

LOOKUP Range Based On Contents Of A Cell

Aug 24, 2006

I want to be able to send out one master workbook with the fourteen ranges, and use a pull-down list (or anything else) so when the user selects a state, the proper lookup range will be used. In the attached abbreviated example, I want the lookups in Column B to refer to the state designated in B2. In this case, the VLOOKUP works correctly, since Colorado zip codes are in the ColZip range.

The people in Idaho or Oregon using this will only be working with their respective zip codes in ranges IdaZip or OreZip, so if they enter their state in B2, I would like the VLOOKUP to look in a different range. My whole idea is to only have one master workbook so I dont have to create one for each district office. Maybe Im thinking in a wrong direction altogether.

Display Named Range Contents Based On Text In Cell

Aug 24, 2009

I have some dynamic named ranges in sheet1, and in sheet2 I have data validation dropdown list which has the names of all the DNR's in it.

What I want it to do (in sheet3, no less) is for the user to be able to pick a named range from the dropdown list, and have a particular column in sheet3 then display that entire named range.

I have made a 'data' worksheet which is the source for the data validation in sheet2. Each item in the list identically matches the name of each of the named ranges. I was hoping to be able to use some form of =INDIRECT but alas, no such luck.

So it's almost like a copy and paste function I'm after, where:

If you pick "Schedule_From" out of the DD-list, then DNR 'Schedule_From' is what is pasted in Column B in Sheet3.

DON'T want to use a PivotTable.

Trying To Trim Anything Non-alphaneumeric From Target Cell

Jan 12, 2009

I'm trying to make up a sheet that will be able to cope with users pasting in data from other sources. I thought simply running a TRIM function on any data entered in the target cell would be enough, but I've realized that many of the "space" looking characters are not really spaces and don't get trimmed. I've searched around here, but can't find a definitive answer... What can I use in VBA to trim anything that isn't a-z or 0-9 from around data that's entered or pasted in?

Return Contents Of 1 Cell Based On Contents Of Another Cell?

Mar 12, 2014

I thought this was a pretty simple formula but I am having difficulty creating it. I am attaching a little test spreadsheet. Sheet 1 is where the data will be entered. The Reimbursed column has a drop down choice of yes or no. The next 2 columns are the cost of registration and the cost of accommodations. On sheet 2 is where I would like the formulas. So in cell A4 I would like a formula that says if B3 on sheet 1 is Yes populate this cell with the contents of Cell C3 only, B4 of sheet 2 would then be B3 if A3 on sheet 3 is Yes and so on with the Not reinbursed if sheet 1 the Reimbursed column is no.

Trim Special Characters In Cell To Be To Split Data Into Columns?

Apr 9, 2014

This formula I want to apply it in another workbook. It split in different columns the content of a cell.

The formula is below:

[Code] .....

In cell A2 I have the following data:
|516582-001-99|414816-001-99|414816-003-99|516582-001-99|

If I apply the formula above in cells B2 to E2 it returns a blank cells. But if I delete the first "|" sign in the left side manually the formula works perfectly by splitting the cell into columns from B2 to E2. The issue here is that I have more than 300,000 records. Just imagine the amount of time invested in just deleting the first "|" at the left side.

I need a variation of the formula above that in first place delete the first "|" at the left side and after that continue with the proper work of the formula.

I need to check a range of cells (B4:B35) and see if any of the contents are less than a specified cell (M1) and then show a message, (the message part I can do). I have tried using For Each but I then get the message for every cell that is below the specified cell (which in theory could be all of them). I have also tried using an If Any statement but didnt work.

Excel 2007 :: Shrink / Trim Worksheet To Rightmost / Lowest Filled Cell?

Aug 19, 2014

Assume I filled some cells of a worksheet (in Excel 2007).

Now I place the cursor in one of the cells and dragged the cursor to the right side. As a result more and more empty columns are automatically added at the right side even I do not enter something. Similarly rows are added at the bottom when cursor is dragged downwards.

Correspondingly the horizontal (and vertical) slider shrinks because the dimensions of the matrix grows.

Is there a menu/function which let me do the opposite?

Something like a trim/shrink function which cuts/deletes all empty columns beginning from the right side resp. rows from the bottom?

.... but not from the left and topmost side.

Clear Contents Of Cells In A Range, LEN=0

Dec 23, 2009

I'm using a macro to copy the results of a formula and paste the values only on another sheet. The result includes lots of "blank" rows. I have another macro to get rid of the empty rows and move the information up.

It's not working because the "blank" rows aren't empty. Even though I paste values only, experimentation shows that the cells that appear blank return a false to the ISBLANK test with a length of 0.

So now I think I need a macro to run after the pastespecial command to look for cells within a range with a length of zero and delete the contents of those cells, but leave alone anything with a length of >0.

I am brand new to the idea of using VBA, but I have successfully cobbled together some stuff and can usually modify things to work.

It seems I need to maybe use some sort of IF statement along with a LEN and ClearContents. I don't want to delete the blank cells, just make them truly empty so that all of my actual data stays where it should, and my delete empty rows macro works correctly.

I did a search and see some info on clearing contents of columns or rows, or clearing contents based on the content of other columns or rows, but I'm unsure of how to tell it to search each cell within a range and clear the contents of 0-length cells to make them truly empty.

Set A Range And Copy Contents To Another Worksheet

Jul 7, 2006

I have a workbook with lets say 10 sheets. 9 of the 10 sheets are identical as far as layout, they just hold different information for different employees. I need to get a range of cells that are NOT empty and copy that data to the 1 different sheet (summary page). A6 through A25 is where the data is going to be, but all those cells may not be filled up, so I want to drop the empty cells from the range. So If only A6-A15 are filled, then those are the only ones that get copied.
ALSO (dont you love that) I need to take that number range and have columns A, F and I as well. So if I have A6-A15, I will need the data out of F6-F15 as well.

Clear Contents Of Filtered Range

Jan 10, 2007

I am filtering column S in a sheet to show all rows with a date after the end of the previous month - i.e. >= 01/01/07. What i want to do is clear the contents of those visible cells in column S. I tried the code below (got it on this site) but it works its way up from the bottom of the sheet until it finds the first visible row and then clears the contents of column S in each row above it, whether it is visible or not.

Sheets("Planning").Select
With Range("e2:C2")
.AutoFilter field:=5, Criteria1:="<=" & Sheets("Filtered Statistics").Range("c3")
.AutoFilter field:=19, Criteria1:=">=" & Sheets("Filtered Statistics").Range("d3")
For i = Range("s65536").End(xlUp).Row To 3 Step -1
If InStr(1, ">=" & Sheets("Filtered Statistics").Range("d3"), Cells(i, 19).Value) = 0 Then
Cells(i, 19).ClearContents
End If
Next i
.AutoFilter field:=19
End With

Change Formula Range Without Changing The Contents?

Aug 21, 2012

I'm using the formula =SUMIF(F18:F18,"LY",G18:G18), =SUMIF(F18:F18,"KT",G18:G18), and so on.

I want to change the range to: =SUMIF(F7:F18,"LY",G7:G18), =SUMIF(F7:F18,"KT",G7:G18), and so on.

I can do it manually, but it's 20 rows.

Is there a way where i can change the formula range on the first and copy it down, without also copying the initials, (etc. "LY") ?
