VBA: Search Function: Which Shows An Input Box Where You Can Enter A Word To Search For
Sep 9, 2003
I'm from Bavaria, Germany. Right now, I am doing an internship for my studies. my problem: I need a search procedure which shows an Input Box where you can enter a word to search for. It should work like the original Excel search (Ctrl-F), but with a simpler design, like with my own Text "Enter your Query" and a Button "Submit Query" / "Quit search". Is there the possibility to Highlight the Search Target? The problem hereby is that this highlighting should not be permanent. That means the user sees the target for which he searched for, the cell highlighted in a different color, etc. But as soon as the user clicks onto another cell, etc., the highlighting vanishes. If there is no fitting match, there should be a MessageBox like "Sorry the Target xyz cannot be found"
I have a search spreadsheet where I click a button, and an input box appears where I put a car reg in, and it searches a different sheet, returning results on the row the reg belongs in.
I've had a slight change in spec. I now need the same function to work, but instead of an input box.. I want the user to type the reg in a text box that is already on the sheet, and then click a search button to retrieve the results.
Is there anyway to easily amend the following code to get there?
Using the search macro code below, could someone please help to add in more codes what I'm currently using, and also where to insert it. The Search function works well for what I need and it helps me to locate data. When using the search function somehow it search all sheets within the workbook but I only want it to search an array of sheets when using this macro that is needed to complete the task for what I'm after.
Macro Public Sub FindText() 'Run from standard module, like: Module1.
Dim ws As Worksheet, Found As Range, rngNm As String Dim myText As String, FirstAddress As String, thisLoc As String Dim AddressStr As String, foundNum As Integer
myText = InputBox("Enter the text that you want to search for:", "Start Search!")
I have an 'Update' Module that search the value of the Userform1.txt_sc.Value in Column B, but I want to search to 2 criteria, how can i amend the below code to search for 2 criteria ( userform1.txt_sc.value & userform1.txt_linenum.value )
I have a userform that with a combobox called "complaintdis". This combobox displayes all the records in column A of worksheet "ComplaintData". When user selects any record from that dropdown list, it populates the other related fields on labels on the same userform. This part is working fine.
when user is looking at any displayed record on the userform (displayed via labels), I want user to be able to add comment that will get added to the column J of worksheet "ComplaintData".
I can workout a way to send this input data from textbox (called "txtcloser") to the column J, but I am struggling to figure out a way to link that comment to the specific record.
As there are number of entries in the worksheet "ComplaintData" , user should be able to select any record (via combobox) in no specific order and leave a comment.
I have a problem to write a VBA code for the following task:
My worksheet has a column that has a unique code in column C (Ex: HR1) which is not repeated throughout column C, and I need to insert the amount of money spent on this specific code.
I would run a userform that has two text boxes, one that I shall enter the unique code and the other text box shall be the amount of money spent. I would like to know of a vba code that can search the unique code of the value entered in the first text box of the userform, then to enter the amount of the second text box into column D in relation to the respective row which the unique code is located.
I would like that the amount entered in column D regarding the unique code could be added automatically by entering any new entries in relation to the unique code selected, if this is possible. If not possible, to go inserting any new date into the next column regarding the same row of the unique code.
When i press say a command button " Add Repair Information" i want the User to Enter the serial number which i have given it a range called SerialN from the excel sheet and enter a repair action. Is there a function in Excel which will allow me to search the Serial Number and allow me to put the Repair action across in the cell on the same line?
I have a set of data which contains " Account Heads" in Column "A" and "Data" in Column "B", "Data" contains "Account Heads" with some other text as well, i want to have the Account Head in Column "C" based on the "Account Heads" from "Data"
I'm looking for a macro to search for records that does not contain the word hello world anywhere(any column & any row) on a spread sheet. Then I want to delete that record. I prefer not to use the autofilter function, if possible.
I have a document with multiple sheets that contain data for a specific date and are set up in chronological order. The last sheet(Final Sheet) has each row as a different date in a chronological range of 3 yrs and each row has 5 cells of data.
I need to write a macro that will take a 5 cell row from each sheet and place it in the correlating date/row in the Final Sheet. Each sheet is labeled as the date for which the data is from so the macro needs to match the sheet title to the date in column A of Final Sheet. Then place the 5 cells from the sheet into the correlating date/row. The macro would need to loop through and do this until it reaches the Final Sheet.
I would like to know how can i search the row for some value and than to input value in the same row but in different column?
In search box I enter bill number 114 and than field below ejected date(15.5.2011) than in the next field user enter price(1500). Now if i have more than one bill number with the same name how can i navigate thru list to chose the right one? Lets say that date is indicators for the right bill.
HTML Code: A B C 1Date Bill Number Price 21.2.2011 112 1000 38.3.2011 113 5000 415.5.2011 114 1500 510.1.2012 115 500
I am looking for a way to search for text with an input search box. Then when each instance of the word/s is found I want to extract the whole row and dump it to a new sheet. The word/s that I will search for will not be in any specific row or column but scattered around on the sheet. how I can get this started. I have been playing with input boxes but have no idea how to use the data that is inputted to it. I was thinking this was my first step.
So this is what I am trying to do, I have a column in my data that is for telephone numbers. When I receive the file some of the fields are blank in that column. I need to add to my current macro a part that evaluates the column for blanks and adds a static telephone number in the blanks (up to the last row of data in the file). I have been able to accomplish this with the following:
However, when the file that I receive has a telephone number in all the fields the code breaks at this point. I have tried On Error Resume Next, but that just replaces all the remaining cells in the column with the static 1112223333..
Is it possible to use the Sumproduct formula to search for a particular word and grab the amount in the next column, but 1 row down? For example, I would search for region 1, but want to grab the figure in the total loans column next to Consumer.
Region Loan Type Total Loans --------- ------------ -------------- Region 1 Commercial 150000 Consumer 75000 Region 2 Commercial 90000 Consumer 145000
I have a small problem which i cannot seem to figure out. I want to create a code to search for a word in a certain column ie. "L". The row of the columns change until they hit the end of the list. What I want this macro to do is find the word and then if the word matches to leave the cell alone otherwise I want it to hide the cell. Basically something like this:
If Cells(3,12) = "JF" then do nothing else hide cell.
I am trying to figure out a formula which will search the contents of 6 cells (o2, p2, q2,r2,s2,t2) for the word "sugar". If it is found in either of these cells, I would like the formula to result in "true" or "yes", if not, "false" or"no" would be the result.
Cells (o2, p2, q2,r2,s2,t2) contain text which can include the word "sugar" but will never contain only the word sugar.
I am trying to create the ability to search for a word in specific columns. In my case below I want to search D5:E500 but it's not working. It searches the whole ppage.
Private Sub searchfind_Click() Dim searches As String searches = searchfirstname & searchlastname If WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("D5:E500"), searches) = 0 Then Exit Sub End If Cells.Find(What:=searches, After:=ActiveCell, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlDown, _ MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate End Sub
This is wrekcing my head as I'm sure it can be done with an Array formula and I cant seem to get it sorted -
Say I have 5 Rows of text starting in A2 "A quick word" "A quick WORD" "A" "word" "WORD"
I need an excel formula to say "False", "False", "False", "False", "TRUE".
All conditions to be met for TRUE are - Word must in uppercase, Uppercase Word must be longer than 1 character, Sentence (i.e. cell) can not contain a space. This is the path I've gone down, but almost certainly incorrect -
I've got a long list of company names, i'm trying to create a formula to see if they match but the problem is the names won't match exactly (e.g it would be Joe Bloggs Limited & Joe blogg's ltd). I've thought about it and think the best way to see if they match would be to take the first word from the first cell (in this case Joe) and then search for it in the next cell and return TRUE if it exists anywhere in the cell and FALSE if not.
I have a userform for the user to use a search engine on what he needs. The following code I have written it, but it is only good if he writes exact wording of the document name. How can I twist the code to make the search look for approximate words,
The search engine will try to look in for all the titles on "Result" worksheet and copy/past it to a new sheet called "search". so when the user types in the userform "specification" for instance, it will look all titles (Specifications, specification, spec, brown color spec) that has this word in the "Result" sheet and then it will copy/paste it in the Search Sheet.
Code: Private Sub ok_1_Click() Dim sht As Worksheet Set sht = Worksheets("Result") 'if no name selected If Trim(Me.Document_box.Value) = "" Then MsgBox "Please write a document name."
