Adding Commas To The End Of A Word
1. In a single column I have a list of random words e.g in column A, I have 1000 words going vertically down, in columns 1 down to a 1000. I would like to know how I can add a comma to the end of each word automatically?

2. In column A I have a list of 2,609 words going vertically down (the amount of words could be any random amount - even and odd numbers). In column A for the first 20 words I would like to automatically put the words "GROUP 001" in Column B next to the first 20 words in column A, thus the words "GROUP 001" would be repeated 20 times in column B.

For the next 20 words in line in Column A, I would like to put the words "GROUP 002" in Column B, thus the words "GROUP 002" would be repeated 20 times in column B. In this example there are 2,609 words so 2,609 divided by 20 = 130.45, so there would be GROUP 001 to GROUP 131 in column B.

Lookup & Combine Names Seperated With Commas

Column A | Column B
Joe | Client A
Joe | Client B
Paul | Client X
Sue | Client A
Sue | Client X

Column C | Column D
Joe | Client A, Client B
Paul | Client X
Sue | Client A, Client X

I believe it would be very similar to the code that I was provided inCombine Multiple Related Rows Into One. I tried to adapt it to my current need, but was unsuccessful due to my very limited knowledge of vba.

Read Qualifying Column Names And Paste, Separated By Commas, In Designated Cell
I am in need of a macro that will scan a worksheet row by row, noting the column names (found in I2 to AQ2) in a specific horizontal span of cells (I to AQ) that hold (any) data. The macro will then paste these column names in a designated cell on each corresponding row (always found in column F), separating the column names with commas.

I am trying to do this for multiple worksheets containing ~100 rows - the example attached is just a quick demo of what I'm hoping to achieve. Also, these worksheets are contained in one big workbook, so ideally I'd like to be able to run the macro once and have it apply to every sheet in that workbook (they all have the same layout - the only big difference is the number of rows). If the Total Scenes part at the bottom of the sheet is problematic in getting this to work, it's fine to remove it.

Create A List Of Unique Names From A List Of Multiple Names
I have a database output file where one of the columns contains managers names, often more than once. I want to apply an autofilter on manager name and then copy the result to another sheet or sheets. My criteria for the autofilter is a variable pointing to a list of names that at present I maintain by hand; a for-each-next loop then cycles through the names.

What I would like to do, before running the autofilter code, is to create the list of names via code. This would then automatically pickup names that are missing.

The code I have so far is below:

Public Sub find_managers()
Dim managers1 As Range
Dim names1 As Range
Dim n1 As Variant
Dim n2 As Variant

In my mind it should check the names in the unique list against the imported list and add any missing names.

Looking Names In A List With Names Written Differently And With Duplicates
I am using Excel 2003 and Windows XP.

I have been given a list of my firm’s target clients (in excel) and an opportunities report (exported into excel) from our CRM system, which lists all the opportunities (i.e. opportunities to sell/provide products/services) that have been created for each client. Some of the column headings in the opportunities report are as follows:

Client; Opportunity ID; Opportunity Name; Opportunity Description; Created by; Date Created etc.

What I need to do is lookup each client, from the target clients listing, in the opportunities report to see whether an opportunity has been created; and if so, return the row of values (i.e. the Opportunity ID; Opportunity Name; Opportunity Description; Created by; Date Created) for that client. The result will be placed next to the name of the client in the target client worksheet.

I have a couple of problems. Initially I tried to use the VLOOKUP function to lookup the client name in the opportunities report and return the Opportunity ID (I then planned to use the same formula to return values from the other columns); however, as the client names in the target client listing were not always written the same way as they were in the opportunities report, the formula often returned #N/A. The formula I used was

=VLOOKUP(A8,'Opportunities Report'!A2:F51,2,FALSE)

So for example, the first client that I was looking up was written as “ABC Ltd” but in the opportunities report it was written as “ABC Limited”.

My second problem was that for some clients, there were multiple opportunities listed in the opportunities report. Where this was the case, there was a separate row (repeating the client name in the first column) for each opportunity created. I think that was messing up my VLOOKUP formula as well.

Is there a way to look up the client name, from the target client listing, in the opportunities report even if it’s slightly different and return the row of values for each opportunity created for that client on a separate row?

Replace Bad Names From A List Of Good Names
create a script that will replace the names in column A on sheet1 from a Master sheet in the same workbook?

The problem is that different users are entering data on sheet1 col A in different ways example someone may enter Johnc or John C Or John What I want is for something to run down col A on sheet1 and look for the like name on the master sheet if the name matches then do nothing but if the name is like another name on the master sheet then replace the name if they are almost alike.

Adding Data From Specific Names
I have a sheet that has the same employee names several times in different orders in the same column with data to the right of it. Example


I need the peices and hours total for each name on another sheet. So I would have John on my sheet and would need to to grab and add the info from B2 & B6 into one cell (since it is the same person). I can always drag the info over for hours once I find a way to do this for the pieces I would think. The problem is that I don't want to add in B1 & B2 for John because those numbers are not a part of the total.

So is there a way or formula for one cell to look at the entire sheet and everytime it sees the name john to add the information one column over and one cell down and then give a total?

I may be able to do some formatting and have all the info I need directly to the right. So I would have (A1) John, (B1) Data, (C1) Data. The issue would be a cell finding the name, taking the information directly to the right of it and adding it as many times as the name is found on the sheet.

List Names, InputBox, Check If Name Is On The List
I have an excel sheet with 30 names in column A and I'm asked to do the following:
Write a procedure – a sub – that uses an input box to ask for a name. The procedure should then scan through the names in the list to search for the name and make a message box to state “X is not in the group” or “X is in the group”, where X is the name from the input box. HINT: You can make a variable “found” that starts with the value 0 and gets the value 1 if the name is found in the list.

Only List Names That Don't Have A Value Next To Them
With the following list on Sheet1, on Sheet2 I want list only the Names that don't have a value next to them:

Abigail 6
Alina 24
Andrew 5

That sounds so easy to explain, but I am baffled as to how you can do it with a standard if function without getting the following type of result (this list could be up to 200 names - I only want ones that don't have a populated field next to them):

Aaron True
Alexander True
Allan True

Can this be done with a groovy IF and INDEX formula, or is VBA (of which I have very limited skills) the only way to go?

Adding Name To A List - Alphabetically

I wrote the below code, based on the ASCII number of the beginning letter of the name. This does indeed identify approximately where to place the new name. But it's far from easy and I doubt it's efficient.

This is the code I produced thus far....the short version...

Drop Down List (Does Not Scroll Through All Of The Names)
I am creating an appointment calendar for the local free clinic.
There are over 1300 patients.
I used validation to create a drop down list in each 15 minute time segment of the schedular.

Two questions.
1. It does not scroll through all of the names....leaves the last 100 or so off. When I chose the validation List I chase the entire column. Is there a maximum length for Lists?

2. With that many names, it is a slow scroll. Is there anyway to enter the first letter of the patient name and have the scroll list go to that point on the list?

I usually try to figure these out myself, but the clinic needs the appointment scheduler as soon as possible.

Get Email Addresses From List Of Names
I have a list of 200 first and last names...column A is first name, column B is last name.

I want to find their e-mail addresses easily...

My company has a website that is a searchable directory. Each person has a profile which contains the person's e-mail address in its own table.

The directory is set up such that when you search for a persons name, you get the following URL:

I am looking for an easy way to do 2 things:
1) combine the first and last name from separate columns into one single column such that it appears as john+doe (include the "+" sign)

2) take the "john+doe" cell value and paste it to the end of the URL

3) run a web query using the updated URL which imports 1 specific table from the person's profile, namely, their e-mail address.

I can successfully run a web query for 1 person manually. However, I am looking for a way to do this more efficiently for a list of 200 names.

I'm want my subroutine to 1) Sort the cities in alphabetical order (this occurs at the end of the code), 2) for each of the cities listed in "AllCities" worksheet, check whether there is a additional corresponding worksheet of the same city name, and if there isn't one, the subroutine would automatically add it, and 3) delete any worksheet of a city name that is NOT found in the listings found in the "AllCities" worksheet.
