I was able to find the syntax to add a cell within a text string but I am having a formatting problem. The cells which I am adding were using formulas that left decimals. Although I turned off all of the decimals on the cell, the values when I used the cell within the text string included all of the decimals and in some cases 6 or more decimal places. Is there a way to keep the formatting of the cell?
As per title, I am trying to compare a column of text cells which contain "Yes" or are empty and a columns of numbers. If they are "Yes" and "1" on the same row, I want to output an "OK" message. Excel seems happy with the following code but it does not work and returns an empty cell if the two conditions are true.
I have some text I wish to add some content to the front and back of it. i.e. the text in the cell is "126.96.36.199" and I want to add "http://" to the front of it and ":9999" to the back to it, so it looks like "http://188.8.131.52:9999" in a different cell.
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.
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.
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.
I have a list of numbers in column A (i.e.: 1234)and I need them to show up in column B in with an "*" asterisk on each side on the number (i.e.: *1234*). So I was using "=a1" in cell B1, is there away to add the asterisk to the formula as text?
The range contains a list of names. I want the sub to start with the first name and sum the value(long) which are in 7 columns to the left of the text string. Once this procedure has been done for the first name, it should go back up to the second name and do the same and so on. Once done I will return the name (cell A1 in another sheet) and its respective sum (cell B1 in another sheet) so that I have the list of names with their respective sum.
Sum function using an offset of 7 columns to the left?
In a userform i have created an textbox. The user types some text in it and after clicking an OK-Button this text must be copied to a cell To allow multiple lines (enter = new line in textbox) i have changed the textbox property EnterKeyBehavior to True. The problem is that after copying this textbox1.text to a cell in see square blocks in the cell.
instead of line1 line2
I use the following code to copy the text into a cell:
Private Sub CommandButtonOK_Click() Dim TextboxText As String TextboxText = TextBox1.Text ActiveCell.Value = TextboxText Unload Me End Sub
how to avoid this  (should be like alt-enter in a cell)
I have a cell that is populated by clicking a button which pulls info from an external source over which I have no control. I need to confirm the selection made by the user contains one of four quarterly values: Mar, Jun, Sep or Dec. I have this but wanted to know if there is a better alternative or a way to shorten the code.
Code: If InStr(1, UCase(celltxt), "MAR") Or InStr(1, UCase(celltxt), "JUN") _ Or InStr(1, UCase(celltxt), "SEP") Or InStr(1, UCase(celltxt), "DEC") Then
I want to remove a string of text from the front and rear of a cell value and would like to do it with one formula. I have tried using LEFT,RIGHT and LEN. I would Like to use the SUBSTITUTE formula as the user can define the actual string to be removed.
I can achieve want i want using two columns i would just like to be able to consolidate down to one.I have tried nesting the formulas but i always seem to get an error.
Characters to remove Raw data Output
Front dog dogcatmouse cat
Rear mouse dogratmouse rat
Assume that the table uses stadard naming conventions for Columns(a,b,c...) and Rows(1,2,3...)
I need to find a formula which will search a list of cells looking for a particular text string. If it doesn't find this text string it then needs to search for the next one. For instance if I had a list of product codes: ABCD1234, BCD1234, ABCD2345, CDE23456, BCD2345 I want the formula to look up and see if the cell contains the text ABCD and if so return ABCD as the value, if not I want it to go on and see if the cell contains BCD and return the value BCD, if not then go on and search the value CDE etc. It seems like an easy job to do manually but I have a list of over 3000 codes to do this.
I want a formula or function that will return a count value if a cell contains a string rather than returning a value if the cell equals a value. For example, =COUNTIF(A$1:A$19703,F1) returns a value to cells in column G if the value in column F equals any exactly matching value in A. I need a formula that works like the filter option "contains" so that if any cells in col A merely contain a string rather than exactly match or equal a string from column F I can get a count value returned.
I want to be able to use a macro to read cells from a certain column so that it will evaluate a text string untill it hits a blank space, then copy the text that it found. I'd like it to work on Excel 2003 or later
If I have a cell (a1) containing the text "Sage, Navision, Hardware" how do I write a sumif formula that will add up a set of numbers based on cell A1 containing the text string "Navision" (for example)
I am using VB and need to search each cell in the row for a string "U30". If it appears, then I need to grab that plus the next three digits, "U30XXX". Otherwise, I need to grab the last six in that row (=RIGHT(M2,6)). I am not sure how to structure the If statement in VB. I searched the forum and help files, but was not sure what to do from here. Currently, I have...
I have a column of cells that contain a long string of characters....I need to pull out text from this string and put it in subsequent columns. The symbol I am concerned with is >> For example.
If this string is in the first cell in column A: >>abcd>>defgh>>ijkl
I would want a formula to return abcd in column b, defgh in column C, and ijkl in column d. >>this is a test>>make it work. in this example I would want "this is a test" returned in column B, and "make it work" ruturned in column C
I have a worksheet with over 10,000 records. The column that lists where a person is willing to relocate can have up to 60 city/state entries in one cell.
Here is an example of what appears in one cell - this is exactly how it appears:
ASAI Los Angeles (XX , CA DFO Pacific (XX ONLY), CA DFO Pacific Area Analyst Laguna Niguel (XX ONLY), CA SAI Los Angeles (XX ONLY), CA Ldr Los Angeles El Segundo POD (XX ONLY), CA Ldr Los Angeles Long Beach POD (XX ONLY), CA Ldr Los Angeles POD (XX ONLY), CA Senior Ldr (XXXX) Washington (XX ONLY), DC
What I need to do is be able to sort on city and state, so I wanted to be able to extract and separate the city and state. I tried using a find/replace (CTRL J) to enter a semicolon between each entry and thought I could do text to columns to separate, but that doesn't work.
How I could extract this information? Notice that the first entry is missing ) - that is throughout the records.
I am trying to transfer data from some appointment based software into a spreadsheet . the data comes out as one row For example ,the following is the contents of cell A1: 06/06/2014 09:00 AM - 09:30 AM Patient: John Smith
What I would like to do is extract one column with the date ,one column with the patient forename and one with the patient surname.
I have tried various combinations of =RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-FIND(".",A1)) etc etc but cannot extract the data I need
I need a nudge in the right direction with how to amend the below code so that it : 1: cycles though all cells in a workbook, and sees whether the text reference of the cell contains a picture filename (i.e. searches for .png or .jpg in the cell contents) 3: if (1) is correct, it retrieves the picture from "C:/Users/jeff/Documents/Standards/" and pastes it as a cell comment background in the cell to the right (and overwrites any comment backgrounds that might already exist there)
The code below does something a bit different: it looks in a defined range, then adds a comment with a background picture retrieved based on the text in the cell to the left.
I'm sure this is a pretty basic change, but my VBA skills aren't up to it...I've only just started reading though Walkenbach's Power Programming! I'm using Excel 2007
