I have done a search on carriage returns/characters and what has been suggested is not working. I have BOTH carriage returns in the cell and also the boxes (that I assume are also carriage returns. I tried the substitute formula (=substitute(cellref,char(10),)) in excel but it only removes the alt+enter carriage return. I tried the various suggestions of find & replace but the chr$..etc did not work! Is there a formula to clear both in one (not a macro!)..?
I'm working with a document that has several cells which require double carriage returns within cells. The location of each space is marked with an @ sign. A few weeks ago, I found an article online that explained how to do a find replace where the find value was '@' and the replace value was a series of numbers/characters that created a carriage return. When I doubled the carriage return code I got my two spaces. If I remember correctly, the string that I entered still appeared in the cell, so I needed to clean up afterwards by replacing that string with ' ', but it still left the line break.
I need to include over 70 data fields in a pivot table that I want to add/remove with a pivot. They need to have an alternative caption and be formatted. I am currently using the following piece of With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("tytwprods_v_lytwprods_(abs)") .Orientation = xlDataField .NumberFormat = "#,##0" .Function = xlSum .Caption = "Products 2007-08"
However, I need to do this many times and it is a bit painful. I have created a spreadsheet with concatenated fields to create the above, although on one line which isn't liked by VB.
How can I make my code work but with it all on one line like:
not compatible with older versions of Excel? When I try and open my workbook on an older version (2000 and below) I get a runtime error and it highlights this. What's weird is that even when I open the it at home I get this and I have 2003 at home.
In Excel 2003, I remember being able to tab across a row of cell entering data and when I got to the end, I'd hit enter and it would take me to the beginning of the next row. But in 2007, I can't...is there something I need to do in Excel Options or is this function gone?
I am working with a data sheet that holds a cell containing a number of position entries with each entry separated by a carriage return within the cell. I need to determine the entry associated with Accountant. The formula below determines if the entry Accountant exists and if so, displays 14 characters of information starting after the 12th character. The entry after "Accountant" is variable, but will have a carriage return at the end of the line. How can I identify the placement of the carriage return after the Accountant: entry?
Selection.Replace What:="GD", Replacement:="BLACK", _ LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:= _ False, ReplaceFormat:=False Selection.Replace What:="WD", Replacement:="WHITE", _ LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:= _ False, ReplaceFormat:=False GD and WD are in the same cell, I would like the end result to go from GD WD to:
A cell contains the name, tel number and address of a user. Those 3 fields are separated by a carriage return (alt+enter) in the cell. I need a macro to keep only the name, which is on the first line of the cell. The macro should be generic and should work for any particular name.
I am looking for some assistance in creating a macro that would allow me with one key stroke to enter a cell in edit mode, add a carriage return to the end of text in the cell, then move the cursor to the next cell.
The best way to explain my problem is to look at the table below:
How it looks now: ApplePrice 1 Price 2 Price 3FruitDeliciousPearStore 1 Store 2FruitVery DeliciousHow I want it to look:ApplePrice 1FruitDeliciousApplePrice 2FruitDeliciousApplePrice 3FruitDeliciousPearStore 1FruitVery DeliciousPearStore 2FruitVery Delicious
I have a column of Supplier IDs. Maximum number of characters is 9. If the supplier ID is not 9 characters long, it should have 0's placed in the front so that there are 9 characters. For example, Supplier ID is 487695. It should look like 000487695. I can get Excel to format the cells correctly by using the custom format. However, when I import into Access, it trims the 0's away even though the field is identified as text because the custom format does not actually change the "value" of the cell. It merely formats the cells.
How can I get this column to correctly import into Access from Excel?
Example below of the data I have. I need to convert dates into DD.MM.YY (8 chars) for SAP. I receive spreadsheets where the date is dd/mm/yy and I use the replace to convert the "/" to ".", then format this column as TEXT. My problem is some of these sheets have hundreds of records and rather than individually scroll through and look for data that requires the "0", is there a way to insert this. I can custom format that it looks as it has the zero, but it is not in the true data.
1.10.12 data should be 01.10.12 11.10.12 this is correct 3.11.12 data should be 03.11.12 3.06.12 data should be 03.06.12 etc
I am trying to extract some data based on two criteria. The first is that one row cell value is greater in than an agreed date/time, in my case this is 7:00am yesterday. The second is that the first 5 characters of a second cell, in the same row but several columns along, are not equal to 'Monit'. If both of these are met then the code will strip out several cells of data from that row.
I can do the first and last parts of this but the 5 characters check is proving a little more difficult in my limited VBA knowledge. The second cell is simple text format and I can't do a LEFT equation in a different cell to get those 5 characters (restricted workbook range so no room). how to go about running a check? I'm thinking it's probably quite simple but trying to search for an answer to it is tricky.
I have two columns that have similar information. I want to copy the unique information from one cell to a third, blank cell. In my case cells d2 and cell e2 are almost identical except cell d2 has addition information. I want to copy that information into cell f2. I have a feeling I am making this harder than it needs to be.
On sheet1, I want to insert a Vlookup formula that will look in the other two sheets and will return a value (say the variable Y) if two lookup values are met and return a blank if they are not met.
Example. Sheet1. CellA1 = apple CellB1 = 2. I want to search Sheet2 and Sheet3 row by row and if Sheet2 has A and B cells which correspond(a row with "apple" in column A and "2" in column B, return the value Y. If not, return blank. Sheet2 and Sheet3 will never have duplicate values (and if they did, returning a Y would be fine).
When I save my file as text and upload into a program, I get a response saying that my file can't be processed due to carriage returns. What are these things and how do I get rid of them? My excel file has about 6000 rows and 50 columns of data.
I have 4 cells with text in them that I am trying to combine into one cell and not have any blank lines between the text. The cells are arranged like this:
A1="One"B1=Cell where the text is combined A2="Two" A3="Three" A4="Four"
I set the cell alignment in B1 to wrap text and use the following formula in B1: =IF(A1=,,A1)&IF(A2=,,CHAR(10)&A2)&IF(A3=,,CHAR(10)&A3)&IF(A4=,,CHAR(10)&A4)
The problem is if there isnt anything in one of the cells in column A it makes a blank line between the text in column B. I am trying to get the text to the top of B1 and not have any blank lines between the lines of text. Is there a way to change the formula so that it will do the following three things:
1. If the cell A1 doesnt have anything in it then dont put the value in B1. 2. If A1 has something in it and A2 has something in it then put the text of A1 in B1 and HAVE a carriage return after the A1 text. 3. If A1 has something in it and A2 does not have anything in it then put the text of A1 in B1 but DO NOT have a carriage return after it.
I need some direction on how to proceed with dismantling an address cell. I have a workbook that one field is an address label field. What I mean is the entire address is entered in one field just as it would appear on an envelope. I need some suggestions on how to break this apart and create individual fields for the individual parts.
Which works great for values in the reference cell that do not contain carriage returns, which is possible. The problem I am running into is that if the reference cell contains a carriage return the destination cell just ignores it and crams the lines together for display purposes. Is there a way/formula I can use to force excel to display 'exactly' as entered, in cell returns and all?
Is there a way to delete excessive carriage returns at the beginning of data. I pull reports from a SharePoint list where submitter entries often often contain multiple carriage returns before the text or data. I use ASAP utlitily to clean out excessive spaces before and after data, but I don't find a way to remove these multiple carriage returns so that the text entries are easily viewable when row-height is less than gigantic. Cells with extra carriage returns before the text entries end up looking like the following: ___________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | | | Product page for CQ1-14047.LA is missing Swindex section (Core Drivers). | |__________________________________________________________________|
