VBA To Replace String That Matches Pattern

Nov 22, 2009

I have Userform1, Textbox1, Textbox2 and CommandButton1. Textbox1 is being manually inputted by users.

I would like that when I click Commandbutton1, that Textbox2 will be populated by whatever value was entered in Textbox1, except that the any string that matches any of the listed pattern below:

009???
017???
088???
078???
003???
663???

will be excluded. "?" here represent any 1 character.

So for example, if the user inputted "AA-90-088100ABC" in Textbox1, when CommandButton1 is clicked, Textbox2 should have the value:

"AA-90-ABC"

Find And Replace Certain Pattern Within String Using VBA?

Apr 12, 2013

I created a vba procedure for a particular job but within that procedure I need to perform another task. I've been trying to come up with a regular expression but to no avail. I'm looking to loop through a range of cells for any string where there isn't a space before and after a hyphen. When occurance is matched, then replace with spaces. One exception to the rule would be if data is contained within parentheses, then ignore. There could be zero occurances in string to many.

ie.
abc - def ==> ok, s/b skipped
abc - def (nnn-mmmm ooo) ==> ok, s/b skipped
abc-def (nnn-mmmm ooo) ==> abc - def (nnn-mmmm ooo)
abc- def (nnn-mmmm ooo) ==> abc - def (nnn-mmmm ooo)
abc -def (nnn-mmmm ooo) ==> abc - def (nnn-mmmm ooo)
abc-def ==> abc - def
abc- def ==> abc - def
abc -def ==> abc - def

Fill Handle Pattern (not Finding My Pattern)

Jan 31, 2007

Pre-requisite: I would consider myself to be very poor with excel, based on what I've read on this forum and found on my web-searches. I have a worksheet that has a list of data on the left going vertically, then a summary of this data going horizontally across the top. It is not arranged in such a way that transposing the data will do what I want. I am pulling the 5th word out of the title of each block of the vertical data and need to show this word on the horizontal section.

When I use this formula to pull the 5th word: =MID(MID(MID(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4),1,256), FIND("^",SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4)),256),2,FIND(" ",MID(MID(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4),1,256),FIND("^",SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4)),256))-2)

I need to increase A2 to A30, then A58 (up by 28 every time) in every instance in that formula. The fill handle increases the values by 1, instead of 28 (even if I do 3 or 4 instances manually) How do I do this? I've run into this problem in other scenarios, and there HAS to be a way to get around it.

Ignore Character String That Matches Another Cell

Mar 2, 2012

I have a cell that contains a string of characters that were combined from two different cells. What would the formula be for excel to ignore the characters that are from one of the cells? In other words, if cell A1 contains ABCD123 and cell A2 contains XYZ (the length of the string in A2 varies in length), the combined string is ABCD123XYZ. In cell B1 I would like excel to ignore the contents of cell A2. This seems simple but I'm not coming up with the right syntax.

Delete Row If Cell Text Matches Known String

May 21, 2008

I have an excel file, and on some rows, the "B" column contains the text " Total:" (it does have a leading space). I would like to loop through the first 200 rows (maximum length of the file) and delete all the rows that contain " Total:" in column "B". I have tried:

For i = 1 To 200
range("B" & i).activate
If range("B" & i).value = " Total:" Then
rows(activecell.row).select
selection.delete shift:=xlUp
End If
Next i

When I step through that code, it just skips over the IF function as if B1 does not equal " Witness:"

Finding Text That Matches Format Criteria In String?

Oct 3, 2011

I'm trying to restructure a list of files at work into a format that makes some sort of sense and can be filtered into useful information.

Part of what I need to do, is match up all the drawing numbers that a certain project references. The numbers are formatted like "####A##" ex. 1234A01,1234A02,5678A01, etc. The cells that I need to extract drawing numbers from contain some description or other text (not just the drawing number) so I need to extract the drawing number from that cells value. (Ex. I need to get the drawing number 1234A01 from a cell whose value is "blah blah 1234A01 blah blah blah")

I was thinking I could just search the string for "####A##" but I'm not really sure how....I tried instr, but I think its searching for the literal value of "####A##" rather than treating the # characters as wildcards...

I tried:

Code:
if rngNames.Cells(intx, 2).Value Like ("*####A##*") then
set intStart = instr(1,rngnames.Cells(intx,2).value,"####A##")
'....
end if
but intStart remains 0, so this method is not working...

Summarize Data Based On Partial String Matches

Jun 30, 2006

I have two questions:

a. Check the code below:

Dim news1 As String, news2 As String

news1 = "new"
news2 = "polygon"
Dim countie As Integer
For buddie = 2 To b1.UsedRange.Rows.Count
'If b1. Cells(buddie, 1).Value Like "new*polygon" Then
If b1.Cells(buddie, 1).Value Like news1*news2 Then
countie = countie + 1
n1.Cells(buddie, 10).Value = "test"
End If
Next buddie

I have 2 strings, news1 and news2, i need to use the like function to check the occurance of these two strings in all the cells, and just for testing purpose, im printing 'test' it out in another excel sheet.

How do i make that work? the commented line shows what exactly i want, only that i dont want to hard code the string values.

b. If i have a value in the cell:
/new/blahblah/anycra/polygon
how do i split it so as to assign two variables to have 'new' and 'polygon'.

Delete Rows If Column Has Fewer Than X Matches To Part String Match

May 5, 2008

I have data sets on multiple worksheets within a workbook (over 70). Based on the begining of a string, I need to count all instances with that begining, and if there are fewer than 12 instances, delete the entire row.

Data set example:

In this example, I need to count each instance of rows starting with 1/* - 9/*, and delete rows as mentioned. In other data sets the string might start Gi1/*, and so on. In the following code, if I do not loop, and only test against 1 value type, and ONLY run it once, it works. As soone as I try to loop through all possibilities, or run the macro a second time, it blanks out the entire worksheet, starting at row 3.

Dim c As Long
c = Worksheets(i).Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
With Range("A3:A" & c)
If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Worksheets(i).Columns(1), "1/*") < 12 Then
. AutoFilter field:=1, Criteria1:="1/*"
.Offset(1).Resize(.Rows.Count - 1, 1).EntireRow.Delete
.AutoFilter

I have also tried to concatenate a variable with my CountIf criteria, but that fails miserably.

Replace The First Or The Last From String

Jun 24, 2009

I need a code which replaces the given letter or sign combination at the first or at the last position of a string. User should be able to chose from which end the replacement should be done, what should be replaced and in which column. Maybe throug a messagebox!

For example (1):
Column B:
[trn][m1][c blue]$ [/c] = Dollar. [/m][m2][c green]Currency of USA[/c][/m][/trn]
[trn][m1][c blue] [/c] = Euro. [/m][m2][c green]Currency of EU contries[/c][/m][/trn]

Result of replacing the first "[/c]" with "" should be:
[trn][m1][c blue]$ = Dollar. [/m][m2][c green]Currency of USA[/c][/m][/trn]
[trn][m1][c blue] = Euro. [/m][m2][c green]Currency of EU contries[/c][/m][/trn]

Result of replacing the last "[/c]" with "" should be:
[trn][m1][c blue]$ [/c] = Dollar. [/m][m2][c green]Currency of USA[/m][/trn]
[trn][m1][c blue] [/c] = Euro. [/m][m2][c green]Currency of EU contries[/m][/trn]

How To Replace String In The Cells

May 20, 2014

In one of my worsheets in the excel document, I have data as shown below:

Name Description Minimum Values Maximum Values
ABC test desc {0.0, 0.0, 0.0} {1.0, 1.0, 1.0}
DEF test desc {{0.0, 0.0, 0.0},{0.0,0.0,0.0}} {{1.0, 1.0, 1.0}, {1.0, 1.0, 1.0}}

Basically for a 1D array, the minimum and maximum values are within one set of brackets, whereas for 2D array (as shown in the second row), there would be nested brackets with comma after every closing bracket being a row separator.

My requirement is to write a macro to replace the minimum and maximum values in every row of the worksheet (I do not know the exact number of rows as it could vary) with just one value instead of repeated values depending on the size of the array. In other words, I am looking at the below output:

Name Description Minimum Values Maximum Values
ABC test desc 0.0 1.0
DEF test desc 0.0 1.0

Replace String In Over 250 Excel Files

I've been given the assignment to replace an old company name with the new one in an excessive amount of excel files. All the excel files seem to be some kinds of forms with fancy buttons and such. I've been trying to research this quite a bit but only found some shady programs which I'm not installing on company computers so I decided to write a batch script to try and accomplish this, if you have any other ways to do this do let me know. So far I've only got a basic skeleton of the batch script, like looping through all the excel files in a directory and then loop through all the worksheets within the file. Here's how it looks

Replace End Of A String Only In Strings Containing Names

w4_th_e

Find And Replace A Value In A String Of Text

Jan 23, 2008

I am trying to be able to input a value in column A and the string of text in column B will be affected by the value that I put in Column A. And i want to be able to do this with multiple rows with multiple values. Example:

My string of text in column B remains the same until the value of Column A changes. The find/replace will overwrite the "" in the string. This is my string of text in Column B: "^cCHT;all;;t;g;F1;F1;;all;;t;g;F2;F2;;all;;"

A1 value = "ABC"
Resulting Text in B1 = "^cCHT;all;;t;g;F1;F1ABC;;all;;t;g;F2;F2ABC;;all;;"

A2 value = "XYZ"
Resulting Text in B2 = "^cCHT;all;;t;g;F1;F1XYZ;;all;;t;g;F2;F2XYZ;;all;;"

I know that I can accomplish this by creating a button but I was wondering if there is a more automated way like a formula in a cell or something.
