## Assign Duplicated List Entries Same Number

Mar 4, 2008

I have a long list of items. I would like to assign the same number to each of the replicates. I've been trying to expand on this: = COUNTIF(\$A\$1:A1,A1). which increments the number for each replicate, but don't seem to be getting anywhere. The attached file might make it clearer what I'm after.

## Assign Number To Text

Jan 23, 2014

I currently have a spreadsheet which I use to do an audit of the office stationery supplies.

There 3 columns at the focus of this question:

F - Number of items in stock
H - Stock re-ordering level
I - Order Required

I currently have an IF statement to tell me if I need to re-order any stock, by comparing the Number of items in stock against Stock Re-ordering level.

The statement is =IF(H1>=F1, "Yes","No")

This works fine under most circumstances. However, in some of the H cells, I have the text "Special" which indicates that the stock will only need re-ordering on a special occasion.

Any value I enter in F will cause the I to say "Yes".

Is there any way to make the word "Special" equivalent to 0, so I says "No"?

## Assign A Number Value To Text Within Worksheet

Sep 10, 2009

I need to count the number of times a value appears in a row and assign a number that tells which occurence of the text it is.
For example

Name Address
Jim 123 Smith Street
Jane 123 Smith Street
Bob 543 Apple Street
Mary 543 Apple Street

I would like a way to insert a column that puts a 1 next to Jim and a 2 next to Jane, a 1 next to Bob and a 2 next to Mary and so on.
Ultimately, I want to sort the list and delete all the twos, thus deleting the duplicate address entry.

## Count Highest Number Of Duplicate Text Entries In Range

Nov 2, 2011

I have a column that is filled with different names. Some names appear more than once. There is one name in fact that appears four times.

I am looking for a formula, or VBA if that's necessary, that will look through the range Y2:Y50, and return a value of 4, because the person that has the most duplicates, her name appears 4 times.

If everyone's name appeared only once, except for a person whose name was in that range twice, then the formula would return a 2.

## Excel 2010 :: Automatically Change Text Entries To Set Number ID / VBA?

Jul 24, 2014

Basically I first want to be able define around 100 variables such as:

Dog = 1
Cat = 2
Mouse = 3

And so on. The reason being my final data needs to be the numbers for it's purpose but because there are so many I can't possibly remember them all to just type out 23 | 44 | 76 | 2 etc. What I would like to then happen is that whenever I type out the words in a cell it's automatically replaced with the number ID.

So typing in

Dog
Mouse
Mouse
Cat
Dog

would automatically result in

1
3
3
2
1

In those cells when I hit enter or at the end in one go. Is this at all possible in Excel 2010?

## Macro Resets Total In Text Box If A Number Deleted?

Jun 26, 2014

Attached file 140625 box adds.xlsm has three textboxes that are totalled in the fourth box.

The Code updates the total automatically as you ENTER numbers into cells, and overcomes "blanks", but I need it to update the total if you delete any of the three numbers.,

As shown below, I set the Code to "Exit Sub" if a cell becomes blank, but can't see how to invert it without going through the same "checking" process twice for the other cells.

As the Code structure is essentially the same for each box, I've just shown the first one here:

VB:
Private Sub TextBox1_Change()
If TextBox1.Value = "" Then Exit Sub [code]....

## Assign Values To Letters And Count Total In A Cell

Feb 21, 2012

Is it possible to assign values to letters (eg. a=1, b=2, c=3... z=26) and then count the total sum of those letters in a cell

Example
A1= car
car is c=3 + a=1 + r=18 which would make the total to be shown in A2 3+1+18=22

With this code i would like to create a subtotal of all letters per row and a batch total of the column with subtotal.

## How To Assign An Array To A Variable

May 15, 2008

how to do is the assignment of GoodArray1 to CurrentArrayToUse, i.e. "CurrentArrayToUse = GoodArray1" below:

Global NextArrayToUse()
Global CurrentArrayToUse()
Global PreviousArrayToErase()
Global GoodArray1(), GoodArray2(), [etc]
Global CurrentGuessNumber As Integer

[bunch of code, part of which assigns a number to CurrentGuessNumber, then the following...]

Select Case CurrentGuessNumber
Case 1
CurrentArrayToUse = GoodArray1
NextArrayToUse = GoodArray2
Case 2
CurrentArrayToUse = GoodArray2
NextArrayToUse = GoodArray3
PreviousArrayToErase = GoodArray1
ReDim PreviousArrayToErase(0, 0)

## Assign Variable To Worksheet Formulas

Split from Copy, Cut, Fill Relative Or Absolute Formulas

If you "cut", rather than copy, Excel will maintain the original cell references in the formula.

Both of these questions are well within the experience level of a user with above average skill level as your profile shows. Please lower it (before one of the Admins does it for you) to a more realistic level.

See this training page on how to toggle between relative/absolute cell references: [url]

Well cutting is a nifty trick, thank you for that, I don't believe you quite understood my first question.

Lets use my calculator for instance. Using something it has designated K (for no apparent reason) I can enter a formula, such as K=*2-4, and after that is entered every number I then type and press equals to it will run that formula and spit out an answer. (after entering that function, if I press "5" "equals" it will give me "6") Now what I'm wondering is if excel has a "K" function that I can assign to certain cells, namely a column, so that whenever a figure is typed in any of the cells in that column, the required operation is done, namely *.9685.

## Open Workbook And Assign To Variable

Jul 16, 2007

Back to coding in VBA after long months of Matlab, and banging my head around this simple code snippet:

Sub openfile(FilePath)
Dim myWBk As New Workbook
'Now open Form
myWbk=Workbooks.Open(FilePath)
End Sub

This returns a nasty error "Activex Component couldn't create object". It opens the file given by FilePath though. What I would like is to assign the open workbook to the myWbk variable, such that it is easier to work with.

## Assign Variable To Different Data Types

Oct 12, 2007

Putting the final touches on a project I have and the last element doesn't work 100%. the scenario: I have a function that I wrote based on the user's input of the desired column to perform the operation. As a method of error-trapping and ease of use, I set instructions for the code to activate:

1) if the user highlights multiple cells of the desired column
2) enters the letter of the column (up to "z", not case sensitive)
3) enters the number of the column

Sub Button5_Click()
Dim ColumnUsed As Variant
' find number of columns selected
For MyColNum = 1 To Selection.Columns.Count
Cols = Cols + 1
Next MyColNum
'find number of rows selected
For MyRowNum = 1 To Selection.Rows.Count
Rows = Rows + 1
Next MyRowNum..............................

## Extracting Number Of Seconds From Variable Text String?

Oct 2, 2011

I have a column of cells, each with a with text string that has three possible formats where I want to extract the total number of seconds.

The three formats are:

nnn hrs nn min nn sec (example: 1 hrs 42 min 58 sec)
or
nn min nn sec (example: 55 min 1 sec)
or
nn sec (example: 10 sec)

The result I want is a numeric value of the total number of seconds in the text string.

For example a text string of: 1 hrs 42 min 58 sec

Should give the result: (1 x 3600) + (42 x 60) + 58 = 6,178

## Extract Number Of Variable Length From Text String

Jan 25, 2007

Imagine that I have this list of thousands of customers, who are listed in column B in the format "customer no+space+customer name".

Now I want to extract ONLY the customer no from the text string in column B and insert it as number value in column A on the same row.

Would have been easy with "Left" command, but as the customer numbers have variable length, I have a problem.

## Assign External Cell Reference To Variable In VBA?

Jun 29, 2006

I'd like to assign a value located in a cell in a workbook to a variable in a VBA program in another workbook. I do NOT want to open the workbook that contains the cell with the value.

## Calculate Number Of Days Between 2 Dates And Then Assign Number Based On Answer

Mar 22, 2014

How to create a spreadsheet with what I think will be a very simple formula?

If date in B2 - date in A2 is 1 or less days, put a 1 in cell C2.
If date in B2 - date in A2 is 7 or less days but more than 1, put a 2 in cell C2.
If date in B2 - date in A2 is 30 or less days but more than 7, put a 3 in cell C2.
If date in B2 - date in A2 is 90 or less days but more than 30, put a 4 in cell C2.
If date in B2 - date in A2 is 91 days or more, put a 5 in cell C2.

OR

Another, maybe simpler, way of saying it is:

If date in B2 - date in A2 is 1 or less days, put a 1 in cell C2.
If date in B2 - date in A2 is 2-7 days, put a 2 in cell C2.
If date in B2 - date in A2 is 8-30 days, put a 3 in cell C2.
If date in B2 - date in A2 is 31-90 days, put a 4 in cell C2.
If date in B2 - date in A2 is 91 days or more, put a 5 in cell C2.
