Validate Range Against Numerous Conditions

Dec 7, 2007

I have a VERY complex custom data validation formula that is getting crazy. I thought it might be easier to use a user defined VBA function to handle it, but was unsuccessful.

I was able to write a VBA User Defined Function & use it within my spreadsheet to derive the value of another cell, as follows: =IF(OR(ISBLANK(B12),myValidation(B12)),"OK","NG")

I tried using it as a Custom Data Validation on the cell itself (=myValidation(B12)), and I get an error: "a named range you specified cannot be found".

Can the function be used in this way or could someone suggest another way of handling this?

Numerous If Conditions? GPA Conversion

Dec 25, 2009

I am trying to create a spreadsheet that will take all my grades from the semester (I'm a college student) and compute my GPA. I managed to get a weighted average for each class, but the grade is on a scale of 1-100. I need to convert that to a letter grade, and then a 4.0 scale. How can I set it up so that it will return "A" if 90<Grade<100, "B" if 80<Grade<90, etc.? I'm apologize if this is something simple, but I've been trying to find the right function for a long time.

Validate Cell Value Against Range Or Array

Apr 18, 2007

I would like to use VBA to validate the data in an Excel worksheet against either a named range or an array of valid data.

The valid data comes from an accounting system. It is a list of customer numbers. I am using ODBC and SQL to get the data into an array and then into a named range. This is working fine.

I want to validate the customer number column in my source Excel worksheet against either the array or the named range.

There are a variable number of lines in the source data.

I have a VBA procedure which starts at cell A2 and then works down column A until it reaches a blank cell.

I would like to use a VBA formulae which does something like:

IF active cell offset (0,3).Value in (named range or array)
Then set cell colour for active cell offset (0,3) = Green
Else set cell colour for active cell offset (0,3) = Red
End If

Or something like that.

Can this be done using VBA? Or do I need to create a new column in my source data and use VBA to place a VLOOKUP based on a named range into this new column?

Validate Cell Entries To Named Range List

Apr 28, 2009

I have been trying to figure out how to use a named range (on another sheet) to validate the user entered data in a specific column. All my attempts at utilizing worksheet_change event have ended in errors. I've created a simple workbook that shows what I'm trying to do and have attached it to this message. The 'Sample (Data)' worksheet has the data table that would be completed by the user. On the 'Validation' worksheet I have named the range to be used to validate the data as 'rngVal'. So when something is entered under the 'Expense Type' heading, the code would verify that the value entered was contained in the 'myVal' validation list. If it was not present in the list, a msgbox would instruct you to try again. After stealing bits of knowledge and code from many of the posts on this site I cobbled together the following (which results in an error at the 'set rngFind' line):

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rngFind As Range
'Set Target = Cells(ActiveCell.Row, ActiveCell.Column)
Set rngFind = Range("rngVal"). Find(Target.Value)
'If data in column C changes, do the following
If Target.Column = 3 Then
'If the value is found on the validation list, do nothing.
If rngFind Is Nothing Then
Else
MsgBox "You must enter one of the following in this cell:"
With Application
.EnableEvents = False
.Undo
.EnableEvents = True
End With
End If
Else
End If
End Sub

Validate Cells For Numeric Range Of Consecutive Numbers

756415
10
456132

The above is a valid list. Below would be an invalid list:

This part of a larger scope, but I have a macro that will crash if the data entered is entered by way of the invalid list, it works perfectly with the valid list. I am limited to one column user's will input the data via a Barcode scanner that after it recieves input it enter's a "Hard" return. This is a warehouse pickticket program, user's scan their ticket id's (numbers greater than 100000) and then the number of lines on the ticket (usually not greater than 15)

Create Numerous Same Pages?

Feb 19, 2014

I work for a construction company, Someone else created a workbook a few years ago with 140 similar pages, each listing a separate piece of equipment as a service record. I need to print these out randomly for mechanics to update with new information, as they service the machines. However, some of the pages of the original workbook are goofy and the workbook as a whole could be improved. But, oh that many pages!

I have worked on a new template page for entering information to make the worksheets all cohesive and updated. Is there an EASY and/or FAST way for me to copy this page 150x to make a new workbook, and just enter my data onto each new page? I really don't want to reformat each page of the original workbook individually to see if I can fix all the glitches and weirdnesses that have occurred on the pages over the years. I thought it would be much easier to retype the data onto new pages.

Numerous Number Comparisons

Nov 19, 2009

I am having a little difficulty getting my vba to correspond to what i want it to do. I have columns that can vary with how many rows they have weekly. The all start at P2, R2, V2.

These columns always have the same number of rows as each other, but the number of rows varies.

I compare my R2>P2, and if it is return the number in R2. If not, i am looking to take P2 and round down to the nearest .95. (ex: R2 is at 3.45. The value that should be put in in V2 is 2.95. Since the values all change as well, it needs to compare: .96-1.95, 1.96-2.95, etc. all the way up to 15,000.

I know it can be done with if's, whiles, or from i to x, but my experience is in vb.net, not vba. And, since i am new at this, i can write the code, but don't know how to make it correspond to a new excel filename weekly.

Since total number of sites = 3, Instead of clicking that button I made 3 times, I want to call the macro 3 times using a nother button.

Produce Numerous Workbooks Based On Filtered Names

Oct 25, 2012

I am trying to produce numerous workbooks based on a filtered name. I will attach a sample spreadsheet that has the data.

On the sheet we have engineer names. I basically want to filter them (not difficult with a macro) but then to copy the results to a new spreadsheet and save the workbook as the engineers name (ie J. Bloggs has 5 jobs so they are filtered and the results are dumped into a new workbook and then saved as J. Bloggs.xls). This will happen for all engineers.

I have though about doing it as a macro and I think that would give me the end result but we have around 20 engineers and these can sometimes go up and down. Is there anyway to do this automatically?

[Code] .......

We use excel for scheduling purposes and each and every day we fill out a floor chart with who is working that day. As it stands now we have to print out a template and hand write all names or type them in and print it out. What I would like to try and do is define each set of names and allow for easy access to auto fill these names. I feel it needs to be a simple process as not all of our managers experienced in excel or formulas. What I would like to try an accomplish is in sheet 1 cell A1 to be able to create a drop list or formula that that would let me return all the names for a given day.

For the purposes of this discussion we can just define each list as the day that is the header ( IE A2:A4 on sheet 2 would be defined as "monday". Also, I already have the names autofilled based off of what the our schedule has. I'm curious if I could create a drop down list with each day of the week as an option, and if they select Tuesday it will then return all the names defined as Tuesday in a column below.And the next day be able to return Wednesday names and so on.

I'm not stuck on it being a drop down list. Maybe if they could just type and =(defined name) in the box above and it would return all the names.

I have tried an =(defined name) and it does return the value but only for the first cell and it has to be in the same row for it to return the name. Which doesn't work because I would like the names that are being defined on a separate sheet.

Summing First 5 Numbers In Range With Conditions?

First condition:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
The function would return: 1+2+3+4+5 = 15

Second condition:
0 0 0 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Function would return: 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 30

Third condition:
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 8 9 10
The function would return: 10 + 9 + 8 = 27

I have had success with:
=B4+SUM(SMALL(IF(I4:O4<>0,I4:O4),ROW(1:5)))
(using ctrl shift enter)
BUT it crashes when faced with the third condition.

I would also like to avoid ctrl-shift-enter functions if I can as I don't have much success copying them around the spreadsheet.

- Only copy rows including and BETWEEN the first and last rows where total count in col 8 is > 0
So in example1, I'd want to copy out rows P6 - 1A

BUT
- Always copy at least 5 rows when there is one value > 0 in col 8

So in example2, I'd want to copy out rows P5 - 1C, ideally...

Finding Row Number Within Range With Conditions

Dec 7, 2006

In the screen shot I'm trying to find the row number where a particular price of an order has been reached. In this case, for the first order, my execution price is 1.8859, my stop loss is 1.8834 and take profit is 1.8884. I need to look and the future prices to determine which event had occured first (either the take profit or the stop loss). I though by using row numbers I would compare and which ever is smallest would mean that it occured first - the profit/loss is then calculated.

The other caveat is that an exact match may not always be available - for example, the second trade is stoped out because the highest price for the 12:35 timeframe exceeds the value I'm looking for. Still it would have triggered a stop loss.

I also have six differents worksheets where I need to copy the values based on that data validation. To give you and example, all items containing XX in column A copy to XX worksheet.

(this part can be done manually if no function can delete the oldest column) When the weeks are added it must include the workweek in question. i.e. ww25 = (8weeks out) ww25:ww32 / (4weeks back) ww25:ww22 / (8weeks back) ww25:ww18. see example workbook attached.
This has been driving me nuts for a few weeks now.

Return Range Address Across Different Columns Based On Conditions

Apr 23, 2008

I am trying to return a cell address range based on values in different columns. Attached is an example.

In Column A1 I have "Range" and below that a set of numbers from 1 to 31.

In Column B1 the name "Test" is used as an identifier, below that are the letters "a" though to "e". Once the letter "e" is reached the identifier "Test" is moved to column C "C6" and the alphabet continues from "f" down to "j". This process is repeated through the rest of the alphabet and the identifier moved to the next column after every 5th letter.

What I want to do is as follows:-

I would like to know the cell addresses of all instances of "test" from Column A numbers 6 throught to 24. The result should be C7:C12, D14:18 & D20:24. The results should ignore all instances of the identifier "test" and only return the cells which contain the letters of the alphabet.

I have tried using Vlookup which works well if the letters are all in the same column and I have incorporated the Address and Match formulas to return the range if all the alphabets are in the same column, but I do not know how to do this if the identifier "test" and letters move to a differnt column.
