VBA To Select Rows And Sort Contents

I'm trying to sort a whole list of data that's been separated into blocks with a row containing the value "a" like:

row 9 a
row 10 455
row 11 8892
row 12 34
row 13 a
row 14 578
row 15 92
row 16 a


I want to sort each block into ascending order using VBA code and then add in some extra code to do some more analysis.

The data to be sorted is in Column D, and there are also values in Column C and B that need to be sorted with the Column D values (so that they stay in the same rows).

Macro (Select, Sort And Select)
I need to get a macro to select all the data in column "A", sort it in ascending order, omit the blanks if any, then select (highlight) all the data so that another macro can be run.

When I record it, it will only record up to the last row I highlight but the data always changes so there could be more or less.

Clear Contents, Copy And Sort
I have 10 separate files that each have a data input sheet. I have 1 master file that has all 10 sheets in it and an extra sheet to display all 10 sheets information on 1. The drama I am having with sorting the master sheet is that every cell in the 10 sheets has a formular to copy what in the corresponding cell within the separate file. So techincally, the cells are not blank.

The cells range is B5:G1004 on every sheet. I paste 'values only' from the range of each sheet into the master sheet, but when I go to sort column B Ascendingly, it puts all the data at the bottom of the rows and there is 10000 rows on the master sheet. I cant get it to flip around. What I need is a way to clear the cells on the 10 sheets that do not have a value before I paste into the master sheet.

Sort Data By Comment Contents / VB Macro
please have a look at the attached file.

I want to sort the data by the comments in Column B, specifically by comments that do contain a telephone number, whether it is "Telefon" ( e.g. in B17 ) or "Phone" ( e.g. in B24 ) or "Téléphone" ( e.g. in B16 )

I know a Macro written in VB could do that.

non-blank cell and return the column header that it lies in e.g. Row 1, first
non-blank cell is in the Apr column, so I want the text "Apr" to be returned

Select And Sort In List By Header
I have a spreadsheet which contains a list of chemicals in Column A, and a list of numbers in Column B. The chemicals are separated into groups. I am trying to create a macro which sorts the chemicals in their groups by column B, so that the lowest number is at the top. I have 8 groups, and the number of lines in each group may vary, so I need to make the code dynamic.

I have attempted it. The way I thought it could be done was to search for the first group header, then save the address. Do the same for the next group header, then offset that by -1 row and 1 column, then sort using these two addresses as the range. The first part of the code works, where I find the address for both group headers, but everything after that doesn't work.

Sub Sort()
Dim CNMT(8) As String
Dim j As Integer
Dim fromRow As String
Dim toRow As String
Dim rng1 As Range
Dim rng2 As Range
CNMT(1) = "TPH Fractions"
CNMT(3) = "PAHs"
CNMT(4) = "VOCs"
CNMT(5) = "SVOCs"
CNMT(6) = "Metals"
CNMT(7) = "Inorganics"
CNMT(8) = "Pesticides"
For j = 1 To 8..................

Delete Rows Based On Cell Contents
I have merged two workbooks into one. What I need to do at this point is to delete all rows that have a duplicate entry, basically anytime the cell content in one cell matches the cell content in the cell right below or above it, BOTH rows should be deleted. At this point, this is above my VBA skills so I'm asking for help in how to do this. The stripped version of the workbook is attached (only 100 rows) but in reality this is a huge workbook with almost 22,000 rows.

You will notice in the attached workbook, that cell contents for A2 and A3 match. For what I need to do, I need both rows (2 and 3) to be deleted. If you go down a bit, starting in row 89 all the contents in column A are unique so those need to remain.

Move Cell Contents & Delete Rows
I have a spreadsheet with a serial number is row 1 in column A with the rest of Row 1 empty. Column A is empty in Row 2, but has the data associated with the row above in columns B through L of Row 2. Then comes 2 blank rows and the pattern repeats with a new serial number in column A of row 5 and so on. I would like to move the serial number down one row, delete the now empty first row, delete the following 2 empty rows, and then loop to do the same thing again for all 9000 rows of the spreadsheet.

Macro To Sort 100 000 Rows
I've got up to 150000 rows in excel (2007) and i need to sort the data into 2 sheets.
Sheet1 contains all the data. Sample:

1000999999027FRESH PASTA FETTUCINE WITH TOM102002P N0809100000035000000012810000000+0000000+ 0000000000000000+0203001896409

As you can see, the first row starts with 1000 and second with 2000. That would be the criteria. All other rows goes exactly the same.

I need macro that copies all the rows starting with 1000 onto sheet2 and all the rows starting with 2000 onto sheet3.

Filtering and copy/paste won't help, because the list is toooooo big. Thatswhy only hope is to find macro that loops threw the list.

Sort Rows Without Sorting
I have data being fed from an application where it's difficult to sort the rows into ascending order. So is there a way that VBA can sort them and produce a value according to the order?

For example, Column A contains 5 rows.
Row 1's value is 4
Row 2's value is 1
Row 3's value is 2
Row 4's value is 3
Row 5's value is 5

If I were to sort these into ascending order, I'd get 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 in Column A. But I can't sort the rows so I need code to tell me which is the lowest number (1), which is the second lowest number (2), etc.

The purpose of the code will be to put values in Column B according to what's found in Column A. For the the lowest number, 1, the value in the cell next to it in Column B would be "a". For number 2, it would be "b", etc.

Macro To Sort The Rows
I have a spreadsheet that I would like to create a sort macro for. The number of rows will be variable but will always start in the same row. (i.e. ... it might be from A2:E200, A2:E300, A2:244. etc.) Some of the data fields will be blank.

How can I assure I am always getting the correct data selected to sort. I generally create my macros by recording and then sometimes tweaking them manually when necessary but I really don't know VB code very well. When I record a macro using the end/down and end/right combination, I get this
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select

This may or may not always work depending upon how many blanks I have and where they are located. Here is a simple example of what my sheet may look like. Note column F is blank and column G has formulas that looks at the cells A:E in that particular row for evaluation. The sort only needs to go to row E although if it went further, I guess it wouldn't matter. I'm sure this is an easy problem to resolve but I just don't know what code to use.

Sort The Rows Of Data
We have an issue with sorting rows of data that have formulas in them.

These formulas are using data from a row which is above the column headers.

For example cell H2 has 160 manually entered in it. It's the number of work hours available in January 2009.

The column header for that column is in Q4 and has a value of 'Jan'

Below this in cell H5 is the formula '=+H2' because the resource in this row is available for 100% of the month.

Another resource in row 22 has the formula '=+H2*0.15' in cell H22 because they are only available 15% of the time that month.

The problem occurs when we try to sort this data. Most of the cells displays #REF!. Some show a value, but the calculation is wrong.

Macro To Delete Rows And Sort
I have attached a worksheet to illustrate a "Before" (raw data) and "After" (desired results).

Each row contains data on a forex trade. The variables which must be assessed in each row are:

Currency Pair (e.g. GBP/USD).
Opening Time
Closing Time

What I need to do is delete many rows in the raw data because they reflect a condition I do not want in my analysis, which is having multiple open trades of a single currency pair during the same time period.

To perform my analysis I need to delete all trades (rows) which meet the above condition.

The worksheet provides examples, along with a rudimentary tool I've used to help me sort/delete rows manually.

Since I am looking at thousands of trades, a manual sort/delete is impractical. (my eyes don't like this kind of work!)

The rudimentary tool I've used in manual sorts/deletes is simply to have a column which returns a "1" if a trade opens before an older trade has closed. I do this by first sorting the data by (a) currency pair then (b) date opened. Then I must manually go through multiple iterations of deleting trades until there all of the "1's" have disappeared.

I'm hoping someone can show me a macro which might do this sorting/testing/deleting automatically, at least to the point where all I have to do is repeatedly press a "macro" button until there are no "1's"

Sort Data With Two Header Rows
I have two header rows on a sheet that I need to sort starting on Row 3, Column A.

The sheet is A-K and rows 1 and 2 are headers

Row 1 has merged cells of A-F which says "Information" and then G-K " Tracking Section"
Row 2 is broken up into individual sub-headers in columns, A-K each one having a bit more info for instance:

Under the "Information" merged header in row 1 there is
A2 Name
B2 Work Center
C2 C/O date
D2 Due CC
E2 Due MX
F2 Date Received

and G-K in row 2 has different sub-headings.

I have tried to use my normal code, which is great for one header, but it ends up sorting the sub-header as I call it...

Select Last X Rows
I am trying to record / edit a macro in Excel Office 2003 that selects a cell (c6), then goes to the last cell to the right of that range which I am doing fine


What I do now is select from that last cell found in the range down to the last cell in that column and I am getting that to work OK

Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select

I now have a range of data on one column selected as the last column of data in a range. What I am having difficulty finding the solution to is how I can keep this range highlighted and include on the highlighted range the previous column of data as well (column to the left) - which would give me the last column of data (this months infomation so to speak) and the previous columns data as well (last months so to speak) - so I can then progress to copy paste to a selcted area - later I will add a new column of data so the last column and the previous one moves to the right every month so cannot select by specific cell references

Sort Rows Housing Conditional Formatting
I have a spreadsheet in which I needed to add the row totals of cells affected by conditional formatting. Ozgrid came to the rescue here (kudos to Dave H and JimFuller1), but now if I sort by these totals the results do not match the rows they are associated with. The attached spreadsheet shows the values the users want to see on Sheet1. The user changes the highlighted values in the rows by changing the values in A1 and B1. These index a set of tables on Sheet3, and Sheet2 mimics the CF conditions in order to provide the totals in col V of Sheet1.

Now if I filter a Sheet1 field on nonblanks (to get rid of the blank rows) and then attempt 'Sort Descending' on Col V, all the rows appear to sort correctly with the exception of Col V which now appears to give the wrong total for the row.

Macro To Sort Rows By Date Order
Starting at E8 and going down the E column there is a list of non sequential dates that could potentially be very small or extremely large. These dates must be sorted in ascending order together with all the data in their respective rows so for example

John Ball 20/2/07
Mark Dunn 19/2/07
Tim Jones 18/2/07

should be sorted as

Tim Jones 18/2/07
Mark Dunn 19/2/07
John Ball 20/2/07

If anyone can write such a piece of code it'd be very time saving.

Select All Rows In A Macro
I need to create a new macro that will select all rows that have data and create a (3) pivot tables.

I have tried to create macros that will create a new tab and populate the pivot table. I keep getting an error that says "subscript out of range", so instead of creating the tab during the macro I have created the tabs as part of the template.

Again the problem is when running the macro with more rows, the macro doesn't recognize the additional rows. Ctrl + A is used during the macro but is hard coated for only the number of rows it selects, Ctrl + A twice is giving me "blank" data in the pivot tables. I have attached a sample sheet with 14 rows. Next month there may be only 10 rows or 50 rows. I have macros created for the pivot tables to view.

1: How can I create a macro to select all rows with data?
2: Can I create 1 Macro to create all 3 of the pivot tables needed?
3: Can the macro also create the tabs during the execution of the macro?
