Adding And Replace A Number In A Cell

i have a question about adding a number to a cell. This is the problem. Each day we track contacts we made in a spread sheet. how could i, lets say type 2 in a cell that already reads 42 and once a tab away from the cell it would change to 44 (add in the background 42+2=44).

Increasing A Value In A Cell By Adding A New Number To A Connected Cell?
First I would like to say that I am not English nor very good to explain myself so hope the title is according to the forums rules. Now to my problem

I would like to to put in for instance the number 100 in cell A and then the number should appear in cell B. I would like to remove the number in cell A without the number in cell B to dissapear. Then add for instance 50 in cell A to get the number in cell B to add up to 150 and so on. How can I do this? I would like to add that cell B is already connected to a different cell. And I am using Vista.

Adding Dim'd Variables: Ignoring Strings & Adding Number
I've got a problem involving several Dim'd Variables needing to be added up, they're all Dim'd as Variants though as they can be either strings or numbers at any time.

I need a formula (VBA) to add them up (to add their actual numeric values - not just a "1" if they contain a number) and ignore them all together if they contain string values.

Find, Replace With And Then Replace Adjacent Cell
I am trying to create a macro where it finds a a certain word in a column for example C. What i want it to do is find anything that says FWD_EUR and then replace that cell (e.g C2) with CASH_EUR_FWD and after it has done that it replaces the adjacent cell (e.g. D2) with EUR_FWD. I then want this to do the same with FWD_USD to CASH_USD_FWD and adjacent cell to USD_FWD.

Find And Replace A Specific Letter/number Combination
I have a column of references I wish to standardize. Contained within a general text description there is also an order-specific reference number, which is not relevant for my purposes. I wish to find all of these numbers and replace them with nothing (i.e. retain the rest of the description).

The reference numbers are always in the format "P#####/##". Unfortunately these references are in the middle of the text field, not at the start or end, so I can't use a LEFT or RIGHT formula to delete them.

Once these reference numbers have been deleted I will then be able to filter for unique records only. When I do this at the moment the filtering has no effect due to these specific reference numbers.

Adding A 0 To The Front Of A Number
I have a worksheet to keep track of products. I use an SKU column with a Unique Number to keep track of those items on the shelves.

When I started my project I never imagined that my database would grow as large as it has. I started my SKU numbers with 80000, never suspecting that I would get to 90000. I am now at 125700. Many items have been removed / sold so it only encompases only 15500 rows.

On the site that I sell these Items, the SKU's when displayed start with 100000 and go to 125700 where 80000 is next and goes to 99999? ( or the reverse depending on which tab I choose ) Not sure why this is but there is nothing I can do to change the way they do it so I must find a way to change my system. With all the 80000 - 99999 items numbered - changing them to 6 digit 125700+ numbers would be a huge undertaking so I would like to add a 0 in front of each 5 digit Number in my SKU Column. That way my items will show 080000- 125700 instead of starting in the middle.

I do keep the column my ascending order so it is currently formated as a Number. I do at times copy an paste or pull ranges items by SKU numbers to mark down or modify.

When I place a 0 manually in front of 80000- it disappears when I move from the Cell.

If I change it to a TEXT cell- it stays in place.

Excel help doesnt answer my dilemma-- nor does my book.

I see there are masks etc -- or is just text OK ? (as I stated - I do use an numbered order or range to identify groups of items at times )- if text is OK, what is the best way to add a 0 to the start of each 5 digit number other than individually ?

There are Gaps in my sequence so I cannot just replace the first cell with 080000 and pull down.

Adding A Sequential Number
You will probably find this very easy but I am having all sorts of trouble making it work as I want to! Basically I need to do the following procedure...

1) Open an Inputbox to collect an eight digit number
2) Insert a column in A:A
3) In A1, enter a col header (URN)
4) In A2, enter the number that was collected in the inputbox
5) Enter sequential number from A2+1 to the last row

Ideally, this would be randomised, so after stage 2 do RAND(), sort, and clear contents, but if I can get the main part right I'm sure I can work that out!

We are doing an international autodialer campaign for an upcoming event and need the zeros at the beginning to pay for the call. How do you get around Excel not allowing a zero at the front of a number and the .csv format not allowing you to save certain formats?

Adding Rows With Control Number That Only Repeat 3 Times: Formula
I'll try to explain this the best I can. What I have here is a time study. Teachers (which are the control numbers) fill out bubble sheets, then I run them through a scanner. After dissecting the data from the scanner and formatting it to my liking i get this below.

Each teacher/staff member fills out three sheets per quarter. Each letter (bubble) counts as a 0:15 min period of time. Only K thru Q counts as billable time, which I've created a formula to count those letters (column 3). But to be countable each control number has to have three cycles 201,202,203.

So I need something that can take each control number that has three cycles and add their # of 0:15 together.

The italic row below only has one cycle for that control number, so that needs to be deleted or ignored.

Ultimately I would like the results on a separate sheet.

This is only a part of the file, there are over 1000 different control numbers.

Find Part Of Text Within Cell And Replace From Another Cell
I need to find the "x" in range C2:C44 and replace it with a value (variable) specified in cell I2

The catch is that I then need to be ablt to change that character when I2 changes.

Coloum C


I2 - Variable = B
*T’x’STATUS will become *T’B’STATUS

I2 - Variable = A
*T’x’STATUS will become *T’A’STATUS

But " *OFF " should not change.

I can change *T’x’STATUS to *T’B’STATUS but then I can change *T’B’STATUS to *T’A’STATUS

Replace 2 Characters Signs In Cell With Another
QUESTION: How do I check to see if a cell contains either "" or "/" and if it does then replace it with "-"? THE REASON: I have a form which needs to be saved in a particular directory with the name "Form 1 - client name - matter name". To do this I have put =("G:UsersCComplianceFile OpeningForm 1 - "&B7&" - "&D42) in Cell A1 and then in VBA added the following macro to a button which saves the file

ThisFile = Range("A1").Value
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:=ThisFile

This works ok BUT, if the user puts "/" or "" in either B7 or D42, it won't save and throws up an error because you can't use those signs when saving a file.

Replace Words In Cell Matching Those In A List
Im hoping there is an Excel Formula (not VBA Code) solution to this problem.

I understand how to use the Substitute command in Excel, but I would like to be able to provide a list of words and have the Substitute command use that list to replace every occurrence within a given cell with a blank ("").

The twist to this is, that the List of Words will be Dynamic, and thus the formula will need to account for that.

NOTE: the formula should NOT replace parts of words, e.g., if the List Word is "can" and the cell to be evaluated contains "candle" the formula should NOT replace the "can" in "candle" with "". Only whole word matches should be replaced.

Replace Cells In Selection Same As Active Cell
I need some sort of code to check through a selection of cells in a column and make those cells "zero" whose value is equal to the first cell in the selection. e.g., let's say I have a key value entered in cell e6 = "2.99".

E6 F6 G6 H6 I6 J6
2.99 5.25 2.99 2.00 2.99 5.00

So the macro should be able to check the value in cell E6 (i.e. = 2.99) against values in cells from F6: J6 and any cell having the same value as cell E6 (2.99) should be made = 0. So, in the above example cells G6 & I6 will have "0" value after the code has been executed. I have close to 50 rows going down starting from cell E6. For example, E7 has a value which has to be checked against the range starting from F7 to J7 and so on and so forth.

Replace Some Words In Cell With Those From Lookup Table
We have a list of typed information (see attached) in which we would like to remove some words and simply replace with a space "". In addition to this: Unfortunately, folks tend to mistype or misspell words, add extra digits, etc, and for those mistakes we would like to replace them with corrections. Therefore, for this problem, we have a Replacement Table and the Subject Data, an example of which is shown in the attachment. I have posted a slightly similar problem on Ozgrid recently:

Replace Words In Cell Matching Those In A List
and in that link, the following UDF was proposed:

Function ReplaceIfInList(rList As Range, rCell As Range, _
strReplacement As String) As String
Dim rLoop As Range

If rCell = "" Then Exit Function
For Each rLoop In rList
If ReplaceIfInList = vbNullString Then
ReplaceIfInList = Replace(rCell, rLoop, strReplacement)
ReplaceIfInList = Replace(ReplaceIfInList, rLoop, strReplacement)
End If
Next rLoop
End Function

This worked great, but at the time i posted this, I did not have the foresight to anticipate the flexibility in what the replacement text would be (the above code always replaces with a ""). THIS new Post is asking the following:

Is there a way to define (or modify the above) User Defined Formula that will analyze the words typed in a cell, which are typically separated by spaces (or on accident, multiple spaces), and essentially use the Replacement Table as a reference for what word to replace with?
