Want To Add Dashes To Cell Text...


I have a column of city names, some are one word and others are two or more. I am trying to take the city name and add it to another word, add dashes in between them and make everything lower case. For example:

Column 1, Cell 1 is: San Diego

I'd like it to look like: books-san-diego (books being the keyword I'd like to insert before the city.)

Look Up On Cell But Based On Value Between Dashes
Here is the examples of values i have

TCH1 - John Smith - I - REG - Total
AV - John Doe - D - REG - Total

what i want to do is lookup on the value after the first dash and before the second dash to get the names only ; John smith, john doe

Remove All The Dashes
Have a column containing data which may have 1-3 dashes locates within
each cell value.
Such as:
125-457A
158-857-1116
124184A-1
125-8745-22D9
458-2145-002-7

Would like to remove all the dashes "unless" the last dash to the right
is followed by a just a single digit. The results would be as follows:

125457A
1588571116
124184A-1
125874522D9
4582145002-7

On the example data, it kept 2 of the dashes in the cell values,
because the were only one digit away from the extreme right, but
removed all others.

Return Cells That Have Exactly 3 Dashes
I have a column of data (column A) with cells that have IDs (alpha-numeric) that contain anywhere between 0 to 5 dashes. Since this column will change weekly, I want to dynamically pull only those cells that contain 3 dashes.

Example:
10648145-3026718-t526363536m
09wcg7-s1s89-wtpxm33-uu6jj0-9y8mv-v1
10658575-2349769-

I would only want to have returned 10648145-3026718-t526363536m since it contains 3 dashes. Do you know of a nifty formula for doing this? I think an array would get me the dynamic piece (so they are not spaced out).

Format Cells With Dashes Between Alphanumerics
I'm trying to find a way to have excel 2003 format the data I put in a cell to auto insert dashes every five characters. I'm entering product keys for the software we have on hand, and it would be a little quicker if I could simply have excel auto format the data entered in to include dashes every five characters.

Example:
- I would enter: D5ATT3D28F6F44536489413E2 (This is a fake, non-working product key, I just typed in random numbers a letters.)

-Excel would format it like: D5ATT-3D28F-6F445-36489-413E2

How Do I Get The Dashes To Not Count As A Digit/number?
I have this script that does what i need it to do but one thing, I need the script to count the numbers as digits only and not the dashes in the format.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Count 1 Then Exit Sub
If Intersect(Target, Range("I21:I24")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.EnableEvents = False
If (Len(Target) > 11) Or (Len(Target) < 10) Then
MsgBox "Not a valid number of characters, please try again"

Hyperlink Code For Sheet Names With Spaces Or Dashes
I believe I have 99% of what I need. The code below has one bug. (See just the underlined text for a very quick overview. The rest is detail.)

My goal is to generate a TOC that:
1) has the VBA run from my Personal Workbook.
2) can be run in any worksheet of any open workbook.
3) can be run in a worksheet of any name.
4) will insert itself at the currently active cell.
5) has entries hyperlinking to the referenced worksheets - of any name.

Right now, I'm stuck with the last point. The macro below will generate the TOC at the currently active cell. The TOC will be hyperlinks to the referenced worksheets.

However, if the referenced worksheet contains a space, dash, or other special character then the generated hyperlink is broken. For example, if the referenced worksheet is "sheet1" then the hyperlink generated works just fine. However, if the referenced worksheet is "sheet-1" then the generated hyperlink doesn't work.

Sub IndexList()
Dim objSheet As Object
Dim intRow As Integer
Dim strCol As Integer

Set objSheet = Excel.Sheets
intRow = ActiveCell.Row 'Start writing in active row
strCol = ActiveCell.Column 'Start writing in active column

For Each objSheet In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
Cells(intRow, strCol).Select
ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection, Address:="", SubAddress:= _
objSheet.Name & "!A1", TextToDisplay:=objSheet.Name
intRow = intRow + 1
Next
End Sub

Text Search Returns Cell Text Contents Of Different Column In The Same Row
Search a worksheet for a user defined text string, and have excell return the contents of a predetermined column in the same row in which the text string was found.

A prepopulated worksheet has the text "gold" entered in cell T278.

1. user searches for "yellow_metal"
2. Excell finds "yellow_metal" in row 278, say in cell A278.
3. Excell then goes to predetermined column (programed as part of macro or VB), say "T", and returns the text contents of the cell in that column, T278 in this example.

Write Ranges To Text Files & Save Each As Cell Text
I m trying to write a macro which could take the text from a single column row T2 to row T313 and write it to a .txt file. Have the .txt file name created by the text in T4 or I could also put the text to name the file in T1 if you think it would be easier.

Then carry on to the next named sheet and produce another .txt file in exactly the same way until all 15 sheets have been completed. It would also be helpful if prior to starting to write each text files, it could test for any text in cell A2 of the sheet. The first empty A2 cell of a sheet would determine the end of the run, if it was prior to sheet 15 being reached.

Check If Text String In Cell With Other Text Is In List
I have a sheet in which some of the cells have two strings separated by a linefeed. I have come up with a cumbersome formula which will let me check if either of the two strings is a member of a list stored on another sheet. However, it fails if there is only one string in the cell, presumably as there is no linefeed for the formula to find. How can I modify the formula to cope with this situation?

There are also on occasions, three strings in the cell, but I can't seem to access the middle string with the formula. Simplified spreadsheet attached to show the problem. This must be formula-based, as we have a no VBA policy. If you think there is better way of doing this, please let me know.

Append Text To Existing Cell Text
I've got a sheet in which I want a drop down box, to ADD the value* to a cell, not overwriting its current value!

*The name of the selected option in the drop down box, the names are located in Map3!A1-n, I set the drop down box to display the related number in a cell next to it.

The cell would contain some text, and by selecting something in the drop down box, it would add the name of that option to the already existing value in the cell.

So if at first the cell's value is


Hi! I 'm Mark,

and you select the following option from the dropdown box


I 'm from Holland!

the cell would end with the value


Hi! I 'm Mark, I'm from Holland!

This would probably work with a macro, already made a start with it but I couldn't get it to ADD the value instead of overwriting it.

Add Text In One Cell If Text Is Present In Another
I have a macro which is identifying unique values between two sheets (sheets '4' and '5') then pasting these unique values at the end of the list (column C) on sheet '5'. It also drags down the formulas in columns D and E in sheet '5' as long as there is text in column C.

Does anyone know how i can add to the macro so that for every unique value added from sheet '4' to sheet '5' the word "uncategorised" is added to the respective cell in column F on sheet '5'.

I only want this to be for the new text added (the unique values form sheet '4') because column F will be blank for these cells.

Text Color Change - Cell By Cell Basis - When Budget Is Reached

I.E. Cell D14 has a budget of $200. When I enter $200 in the cell, the text turns from black to red. I've searched through google with no luck. I have mildly searched this forum, but haven't found my direct answer - I have come pretty close though, in other languages

Check Each Cell In Range For Value & Put Text In Offset Cell

I've tried to modify the code below that I've found on this site but can't quite figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Sub RatingsFix1SP()
Dim FindWhat, rngCell As Range, i As Integer
FindWhat = Array("BB", "B", "CCC", "CC", "C", "CCC+")
For i = 0 To 3
For Each rngCell In Range("A2", Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
If InStr(rngCell, FindWhat(i)) <> 0 Then
rngCell.Offset(0, 6) = 0.15
End If
Next rngCell
Next i
End Sub

To try to clarify a bit: If column A in the attached spreadsheet has a rating code of BB, B, CCC, CC, C, or CCC+, I want the Haircut % rate in column G to be 15%. It seems the code that I'm using changes the % rate to 15% if any "B" or "C" shows up in any part of the string in column A.
