## Conditional Rank Based On Whether A Criteria Cell Includes A Specific Text String

May 8, 2009

I'm racking my brains as to how I can structure a formula to conditionally rank a value in an array against only those values in the array whose corresponding criteria cell includes a specific letter.

So for example I have a list of 12 values, say 126; 239; 0; 171; 162; 157; 130; 199; 122; 153; 0; 15.
Each of those values corresponds to a heading, say: CDE; DFE; FGE; DFE; ERD; DEA; BDF; DFB; CDE; CEF; CAB; FAB. As you will note some of the headings may or may not be the same and may or may not include the same letters in different orders.

How can I write a formula that ranks in ascending order a given value drawn from the above list (which will be in another cell but which in this case is, let's say, the first value: 126) only against those values whose heading includes a specific character, for example the character C (the character in question will vary and be defined in a specific cell).

As an added complication I need the ranking calculation to exclude any zero values. So in the above example what the formula needs to do is rank the value 126 against a sub-set of the whole array comprising only the values 126; 122; 153; 0.

The answer I need is 2 because, discounting the zero value, 126 is the second highest value.

## How To Search For A String That Includes The Symbol

Sep 18, 2009

I'm writing some VB in an Excel macro to search and replace a string of text.

The problem is that the string contains the " symbol, so when Access gets to that symbol it thinks that it's reached the end of the string.

e.g.

I want to replace "0519","863027" (including the quotes) with "0001","863027"

This is what the code looks like, but it obviously doesn't work :

## Calculating Hours In Rota That Includes Text Fields?

Jan 12, 2012

I'm creating a restaurant rota spreadsheet and I need to calculate the hours for each waiter, which is easy enough. But I've got to include stand-by shifts and cover shifts into the rota for the staff and I'd like the formula to ignore the "standby" text, etc in its calculations. I know you can use the =IF(... function, but that only works with one value. As well, the standby shifts will change from shift to shift and week to week, so I need one formula that might encompass all these needs... if there is one!!

An example of my rota for you to see:

MONDAY TUESDAY WEDNESDAY THURSDAY FRIDAY SATURDAY SUNDAY

Total hours for week START FINISH START FINISH START FINISH START FINISH START FINISH START FINISH START FINISH
10:00 17:00
10:00 17:00 12:00 16:00
Lunch Hrs/Wk 18:00 #VALUE! 19:00 24:00
standby standby 19:00 24:00 standby standby o2 Cover o2 Cover
Dinner Hrs/Wk #VALUE!

## Custom Format That Includes Text And Numbers, Such As Medicare Number

Jan 19, 2006

how can you custom a cell format in which you may in type in information that is displayed as ###-##-####-@# I searched everywhere and cannot find this.

For example, a medicare number.

I would need to type in 581566223b6, and it should be displayed as 581-56-2236-B6.

## Using Variable String In Shell Command

Nov 1, 2013

I'm trying to use a variable that hold a string in Shell string command. This shell is the command to take a snap picture over a given region and store the picture to a pre determined file name

***The code do compile***

The string variable is : StringAddress = "g: estsnapasnap1.jpg"

The following shell command will work

RetVal = Shell(("C:Program Files (x86)HyperSnap 7HprSnap7.exe " & " -hidden
-snap:x3602:y155:w1432:h830 -save:jpg g: estsnapasnap1.jpg"))

This one, with the string address variable, wont work

RetVal = Shell("C:Program Files (x86)HyperSnap 7HprSnap7.exe " & " -hidden
-snap:x3602:y155:w1432:h830 -save:jpg " & StringAddress)

## Inserting String Variable Into VBA Command Line

Oct 8, 2012

I have a userform with a numerous textboxes, which I have labeled with similar text and a unique number at the end (num1_txt, num2_txt, num3_txt, etc.). I am trying to create a for loop that sequentially references the numbers of the text boxes and pulls the user-entered value in the text boxes into an Excel document.

Here is the code I have so far...

VB:
i = 1
For i = 1 To 18
Dim cyltrack As String
cyltrack = "Me.cyltrack" & i & "_txt.Text"
If Me.cyltrack.Value = "" Then
Cells((cellcount + i), 13).Value = "*"
Else
Cells((cellcount + i), 13).Value = cyltrack
End If
Next i

I am running into problems in trying to convert the string variable, cyltrack, into hard code that I could insert into Me.cyltrack.Value.

## Command Text VBA

Jul 17, 2008

I recorded this SQL query and got this and a Connection string, the query kind of works but i want to be able to edit more. Can someone tell me what does what in this huge string, i want to be able to edit the MatsViewerView.SpecType and other things like i can edit the lot number=2007312RC (very end of string). P.S. sorry about the formatting, i guess this is what excel does when it records a query onto a macro.

.CommandText = Array( _
"SELECT MatsViewerView.SpecType, MatsViewerView.LotNumber, MatsViewerView.WaferNumber, MatsViewerView.DieNumber, MatsViewerView.TestDate, PostAnalysis.Description, PostAnalysis.Achieved, WPGain1.WPGain" _

## Command Button Output Text

May 30, 2009

Need coding of command button to output text based on the contents of combobox1 and combobox2. The text should be placed in the next available cell starting in cell b3 for combobox1 and starting in cell c3 for combobox2. Each time submit is clicked the name and number associated with that name should go in the next free cell in the spreadsheet.

So for example the user choses name1 and number6 cell b3 would read name1 and cell c3 would read number6 after submit is clicked. The user then choses name58 and number12 and presses submit again cell b4 would read name58 and cell c4 would read number12.

## ActiveX Command Button Text Looks Bad

Aug 12, 2009

I have created an ActiveX command button and the text on the button looks crude. I know that is not very descriptive but I am unsure how to describe it. The text looks jagged and some letters are missing chunks of their letters. The font I have chosen is Calibri.

If I create a Form Controls button I do not have this problem but I want the button to have a particular background color so I do not believe I can use a Form Controls button.

I do not know why the other Calibri text on the worksheet looks fine while the ActiveX Calibri text does not. The attached image shows the two buttons with the top one being the ActiveX button while the bottom is a Forms button.

## Extract Text From Given Point In Text String When Data Points Do Not Share Given

Jul 9, 2014

I have a set of task descriptions that I am attempting to trend on. Some of these (Column B) have the customer's name added to the description; others do not. I need to be able to make a list of task names (ColumnA), removing the name from the text string.

The formula I am using is [=LEFT(B3,FIND("for",B3)-2)].

The problem I am having is when the description does not contain the "for" built into the formula, I get "VALUE" error. What adjustment can I make to the formula to pull over the Description if the "for" does not appear in the text string?

## Search Cell For Text String And Paste Text In Based On Finding?

Jun 29, 2014

I need to create a macro to do the following:

Search the activecell for a text string (a), and then either paste in text string (b) at the end of the cell if (a) is found, or text string (c) if (a) is not found.

For example, if the activecell has "AA/" in it, I want the cell to become "AA/01" (pasting in "01" at the end), and if the cell has just "AA" in it, I want it to still become "AA/01" (pasting "/01" at the end). The macro will be linked to a commandbutton.

## Match Row That Contains Text Text String; List Associated Values From Pivot Table

Mar 28, 2009

refer to the attached workbook for reference. I am looking for a function in Sheet1, Column E that will search for the value of Sheet1, Column A within Sheet2, Column A. When a match is found, the function should look across Sheet2, Columns B - V for values of 1. When such values are found, the function should return the associated value from Sheet2, Row 2. There may be multiple values of 1, and as such, the function should separate values with a comma.

## Excel 2011 :: Find Multiple Text Strings In Another Text String

Mar 8, 2013

How do I use an Excel formula to find which (if any) multiple sets, each of up to 50 words, exist in a series of rows of a spreadsheet - if set A has one or more words found in a searched cell.

A positive result will return a specific value in the designated result cell. If none of the words in Set A is found in the searched cell, the formulae will repeat the test for the words in Set B, and so on.

After all 50 sets of words have been tested, the formula will move to the next cell in the searched column.

New words will be added to the sets of words continually as required.

Multiple words within sets are included in double quotes. Within each set of words there will be some n-tuples of words (i.e. 24 adjacent words) that contain one or more of the words in the set, but for which the formula will be required to return a negative result. Example: Set A = word 1, word2, word 3, "word1 word2 word3". (The words within a set could also be each entered in separate columns, as opposed to all included in a single cell.) The single column of text to be searched is about 10,000 rows.

I am wanting to use the above in a spreadsheet that contains data downloaded from a series of bank accounts to automatically allocate items of expenditure to one of 20 or so different categories of expenditure.

The formula will search the description field to find words that are used in the in the downloaded files from the various accounts to describe each transaction.

If a word describing travel expenditure (e.g. hotel, "holiday inn" but not "holiday travel") is found in the description of an expenditure item - the item cost will be allocated to the TRAVEL EXPENDITURE column, which is one of 20 or so different categories of expenditure.

Happy to consider a different solution if the task can be done better a different way.

Tried using a combination of INDEX/SEARCH/IF in Excel, but was not able to get a correct result. PS I am using Excel 2011 for Mac - which does not allow macros, so the solution needs to be entirely formula based.

## Extracting Phone Numbers From Text String Variation In Preceding Text

Mar 29, 2013

I'm pulling phone numbers out of text strings. There is text string ("Office:") indicating that the number following is an office number (the number that I need). MID and FIND take care of this. There are sometimes two instances of office numbers in single text string, so adding a second column using the third argument of FIND lets me start another search past the first instance of an office number. We have a bunch of office numbers with the qualifier "(Text)" after the original "Office" but before the phone number. How do I catch these ones?

## How To Split Text From Text String Into Separate Columns - No Delimiters

Apr 8, 2014

I have the cell data as below

How would I split into a new column the first part which is a date into a new column, then the country and the remainder into separate columns?

I still want the original data as I need to check that the splits worked well?

16.5.90 CH 1671/90-4
18.10.1991 CH 3056/91-1
24.07.92 ch 2341/92-2
30.7.92 ch 2395/92-3

## Compare Multiple Text Cells To One String Of Text And Return Specified Value

May 12, 2012

I have a dataset of shifts and want to compare each shift that needs to be filled to a list of requests for time off (vacation, etc).

For one cell the code is: =IF(ISERROR(SEARCH(B1, A1), 0,1)

Where A1 is the column of requests in comma delimited forme (ie: "AB,CD,EF").

Where B1 is the column containing the person assigned to shift 1 (ie: "AB")

In this case, would return a "1" as no error was returned, as AB was found in the list. Here "1" would represent a schedule conflict.

Without creating many cells for each shift- there are 20 shifts- can I create an array or string together this type of "SEARCH" function?

## Extract Multiple Text Strings From A Long Text String

Sep 4, 2009

An original text string entry appearing in an Excel cell would be:

"N7C Neuroprotective J5Z Antiviral, other M2Z Antiarthritic, other J5A Antiviral, anti-HIV"

I need to extract N7C, J5Z, M2Z and J5A from this string and list these alphanumeric values in separate cells adjacent to the original text string. The challenge is that these alphanumeric references may appear in different positions within the original string with no fixed value e.g. a "," separating them. The alphanumeric references may also be 3 or 4 characters in length and there may be different numbers of alphanumeric references in the original string.

Another example would be (very different from the first):

"T2Z Recombinant, other K5B Radio-chemoprotective J3Z Antibacterial, other D3A Vulnerary A10C Symptomatic antidiabetic K6Z Anticancer, other R8A Antiasthma B6A Septic shock treatment I1Z Immunostimulant, other S1Z Ophthalmological R8B Antiallergic, non-asthma M1A1 Anti-inflammatory"

You can see that in this further example "A10C" & "M1A1" are 4 character alphanumeric strings wheras the others feature 3 characters.

## Can You Have Text Link That Acts Like Command Button

Jul 14, 2009

I want to be able to have a link that uses cell data as the passed function parameter!

I want to do this so I can simply copy the formula down for new rows and not have to create a command button for each row?

Maybe there is an entirely much easier way to do what I want?

FOR EXAMPLE, the 1st column would be a link to an entry form passing the 2nd column which would be an ID field.

## Replace Command Missing Cells With More Text

Mar 6, 2007

I've written a very simple script to replace carriage return characters with <br> tags (so I can use the output in html pages) - however for some reason when I loop the script down the cells, it ignores certain cells and works perfectly on the rest.

The only 'variable' I can spot is that the ones it misses tend to be longer cells with more text (the one's that failed were 938 characters and 910 I think).

Can anyone tell me if there is a limit on how big a cell VBA can process and if so, how I can work around this? Is it possible to load and parse each character one by one in VBA or something?

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
For Each cl In Worksheets("CREDIT (GENERAL)").Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants, 23)
cl.Replace What:=Chr(10), Replacement:="<br>", SearchOrder:=xlByColumns
Next cl
End Sub

## Delete Row If Cell Contains Certain Text As Part Of Text String?

May 15, 2014

I have a column of data with letters in each cell, no numerical, only alpha. Now, some of those cells contain the letters "adj sub" as part of the text string in each cell. "Adj sub" is always at the beginning of the text string. As an example, a cell will look like this - "adj sub mhm". I want to delete rows whose cell description does not contain "adj sub" as part of the text in the cell.

## Loop And Parse All Occurrences Of Text After Text In A String

Nov 29, 2011

I am working on modifying this code (below) that I found here: VB Macro to search webpage for text string

Code:

Option Explicit
Public stResultstr As String
Sub SearchForString()
Dim rngURL As Range
Dim cll As Range
Dim stCheck As String
Dim xmlHttp As Object

[Code]...

So right now I have the script prompt you for a URL range, then it asks you for what you want to search for, and I have it set to return the next 10 characters from that found point.

You can see here:

Code:

If InStr(1, stResult, stCheck, vbBinaryCompare) > intt Then
intt = InStr(1, stResult, stCheck, vbBinaryCompare) + Len(stCheck)

I began to create something to identify the last position of the found item because next I want to loop it to find the next occurance of the same thing and return the next 10 characters after it in the next cell to the right in that same row:

Code:

cll.Offset(, 1).Value = stResultstr

Again, what I want to do here is find and parse out every occurence of a string (inputbox) found on a web page url in column A. The parse occurrences will go to the right in cells C though ? for row N.

## Excel 2003 :: Extracting Text From Text String?

## Partial Text Lookup In Text String And Return

Mar 15, 2007

Cell H1 has a variable string of references for eg
"FI570783AQ3516346EQ3516346FXVB123456"

I want to return the reference beginiing with "FXVA" so it would ignore the rest and only return FXVB123456 - this should always be 10 characters.

Just to add another complication to the mix, there may be 2 "FXVA" references in the string and i want to get both (these can be in the same string so FXVB123456FXEL123456 - but this might not happen regularly.

## Check If Text String In Cell With Other Text Is In List

Mar 27, 2008

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.

## If Then Formula That Includes Counting?

Dec 20, 2013

I am trying to creat a summary sheet to an attendance log that goes back several years. Idealy, I want to be able to set a date range in the formula that will show me a count of how many absenses, lates, or leave earlies. The table I am taking the data from has columns from left to right (Date, Absense, # of Absenses, Late, Duration of, Left Early, Duration of, and MP) For example in column A I want to see the date Range of 10/1/2013 to 4/1/2014 and I want a count/sum of each of the categories.

## How To Look Up A Cell With That Includes A Hyphen (-)

Dec 3, 2008

Please see attached file. In my column L, I'm trying to find a formula that would reference my column J to the table in the data tab. My problem is the data in column J has a hyphen (-) in the number ex.. 047-258-1 and the next tab does not have a hyphen in between the number...ex 0472581. The correct results in cell L3 would be Walmart. How can I adjust my formula to accommodate this hyphen. Can this also be reflected in my pivot table as well?

## Convert Command Such As FALSE To Text Which Spells Out Word

Oct 15, 2013

How can I convert a command such as FALSE to text which spells out the word (text) "false"?

For example, I want to enter the word "false" in a userform textbox so it actually returns the text "false" rather than the command FALSE.
