Automating Data Processing

Jul 25, 2008

I have a large number of sheets with data in the following general format:

x ..... y ............ z etc

A Unique value Unique value
A Unique value Unique value
B Unique value Unique value
B Unique value Unique value
C Unique value Unique value
C Unique value Unique value
D Unique value Unique value
D Unique value Unique value
E Unique value Unique value
E Unique value Unique value

In seperate sheets, I want the following:

x y1 y2

x z1 z2

And so on for a number of columns - I always want column "x" with another column, however I want the two values for the same value of x to be next to each other, not above one another.

Automating Comparing Cell Values And Then Processing A Formula

Apr 10, 2007

I have the need within a spreadsheet to automatically compare the value of 2 cells and if they match exactly to move the cursor to a group of cells. If they do not match then move to another group of cells. The only way that I can see to do this is via Macros. However I still need to do the automatic compare first.

Check For Data Before Further Processing

Dec 7, 2007

I have a cell in my spreadsheet that is used to designate if the row needs to be hidden or not. If the user enter's "Y", the row is hidden. I need to check some of the previous cells for entered data before the row is hidden. If data is not entered in these cells I want the empty cell(s) to be filled with a color. The user will then have to enter a value into all the correct cells before the function to hide the row will work. What is the best way to do this? I am using the following function to check for the "Y" and hide the row.

Data Processing From Table - Ignoring Blank Data?

Oct 24, 2013

The way I have this set up right now is that data is being submitted by an Infopath Web Form and emailed to me, it produced an XML file with values for all the possible entries for each person but only certain departments are filling in certain blocks.

That XML file is uploaded into a worksheet and then I'm trying to process data off that table to get the information I'm needing. I'm trying to divide data if a certain piece of the formula matches (IF CCU & August then Divide F column on same line by G column on same line and display the result)

I'm also trying to ignore empty blocks which is where my problem is at. So far I've come up with


but that is only working if the data happens to match on the same line in the data table.

Added the excel workbook: patientdashboardexperience.xlsx

Automating Data Import And Calculations

Mar 31, 2009

I have a huge database of textual files all of which have the same format - space separated text files. I need to find the average of the last column of all these files.

Each file is named uniquely. Is there an stress-free way to set up an automated procedure to go through each of these files automatically and to record the average of the last column along with the name of the file. I attached a few text files - these are daily prices of a few securities. The last column is Volume. I need to find and record the average of this column for each of these files.

The text files are here:

Processing Information

Oct 31, 2007

is there a vba code which I could use such that it will show me how much processing has be completed.

So basically the user first enters all the information required for the calculation(which is basically a bunch of records on which the processing is carried out), then they press a button which will start the calculation however currently the user has to keep on pressing the refresh button (ctrl+alt+F9) and keep on refressing until the results have been calculated then they are available to view.

I was thinking if it is possible that after the user click on the calculate button a form appears which will start the calculation and within the code it will automatically refresh the worksheet ('s) and then when a field within the worksheet (Status) changes to completed the form will then disappear.

I am trying to do a conditional format for a cell and I think that it will contain some VB.

If a cell(C3) is a certain background color (gold), then I want another cell (E3) to subtract the number within the cell(C3). If the cell(C3) is not gold, then it is not to be subtracted.

Latitude & Longitude Processing Help Please

Dec 12, 2009

I'm currently working on a project with data that includes columns for both latitude and longitude which I will need to convert from its current form into decimal degrees. The problem is that the coordinates are in the format DDDMMSS followed by a single letter indicating the direction, which means I have to first extract proper degree minute second format before I can do anything. Further complicating the problem is that each of the entries does not necessarily have all of the components I just described (eg some of the latitudes only have degrees and minutes but not seconds) and also if a longitude is less than 100 degrees, the third digit is not used in the data. There are over 2000 records so doing the conversion by hand just won't work and I've only got a few days to present this part of my project anyway.

I'm looking for a formula or series of formulas that will reliably convert something like 1083000W into -108.5000 when the last two zeros may or may not be there and the first digit may also be missing.

Processing A String By A Software

Jun 8, 2007

I get equation in the form of a string from the output of a software that I want to modify by Excel. I am no expert in Excel and I am wondering if some expert in Excel at this forum can do this for me.

see the attached Excel file. The string in cell A1 is an example string that I will be explaining how I want this string to be modified. Here are the attributes of the string.

a. The string will have ASCII characters in it.

b. The string is a mathematical equation. I will be pasting it into Mathcad once the Excel program modifies it.

c. The string has parameters and mathematical operators in it (+,-,*,/,^). Each parameter is seperated from another parameter by at least one space. There is no space in a parameter. So, each parameter starts with a space and ends with a space. The parameters of the example string in cell A1 are listed from cells A5 to A14 in the attached file.

d. If a parameter has paranthesis in it (), then the program will disregard any character in the parameter outside the paranthesis and take the characters inside the paranthesis. For example, it will modify the parameter in cell A5 from "F(u)_X1" to "u". If the parameter has no paranthesis in it, like the one in cell A14, then it will take it as is.

e. The format of the string is such that the multiplication sign may be omitted between parameters. If there is no mathematical operator between two adjacent parameters, it should be assumed that the math operator between them is multiplication. So, the Excel program should insert a multiplication sign between them.

f. Then the program will reassemple the string in the form of an equation by appropriately keeping the mathematical operators in the original expression.

The cells B5 to B14 show the modified parameters of the original parameters in the string in cell A1. The Excel program should put together the parameters in B5 to B14 as shown in cell A18.

VBA Text Processing In 2003

Feb 10, 2010

Attached is a sample Excel file. In one worksheet, the RawData sheet, there is a column of text data. Each cell in that column has one or more values in the form: 2.x, or 2.x, 2.y, 2.z. The x, y, and z values are "Rqmt Numbers".

In the second worksheet, Counts, I am trying to count the frequency of each Rqmt Number. I've been trying to figure out the VBA code to do this for longer than I'd like to admit.

Processing Multiple Files

Oct 10, 2006

I have to apply formulas to many different excel files. They are all seperate, and there are litterally thousands of them. They are all seperated, cause each of them represent and individual user.

I am unsure of how to work on so many files. I cannot select all of them to open at once either, cause they are in different folders.

I need some sort of batch running program, that could go thru each and every one of them, and apply some formulas to them (probably using VBA scripts)

Processing Of Multiple Workbooks

I often use multiple workbooks containing large data, (more than 10MB) with formulae built in. When I update one workbook, i cant use the other because Excel is still processing the first. Is there a work around or a MS patch to rectify this, or this is just a limitation of Excel program?

Show UserForm Animation While Another Is Processing

Nov 20, 2009

I've been working on a variety of ways to display a 'loading' animation into Excel while other processes are running and although there seems to be a lot of strategies out there, none seem to jive with the form I've created. I've been reading a lot about "DoEvents", because that seems to be the common theme in trying to display a UserForm while other processes are running. However, I just don't have enough of a grasp of how it works to make it function properly with my form.

Basically, the form I have features several combo boxes, several command buttons, a few text fields and a bunch of labels. On initializing the form, captions for the labels and items in the combo boxes are added based on the ActiveCell and its surrounding values. Additionally, it includes an 'UPDATE' button that changes the captions and values on the form itself without hiding it, and once again makes reference to the active cell. This 'UPDATE' function can take quite some time and this is where I want to have a loading animation running.

Like I said, I've tried to achieve this in a few ways and the most hopeful avenue seems to be creating a separate UserForm with a WebBrowser element that references the animated GIF in question. However, when one UserForm is showing, the code from another will not run until it is closed. Thus, if I call the animation from the UPDATE button, the animation form will appear, but the update itself will not occur until the animation has been manually closed. Which defeats the purpose of a loading animation.

I understand that "DoEvents" is supposed to surrender some of the allotted processor power from the application so other code run, but the documentation surrounding it is rather convoluted to me. I can get it to work for simple operations, but I have not been able to simulate a situation where the command button on one form will show the animation form, run some code and then hide the animation with one click.

Combining 2 Vba's And Shortening The Processing Time

I have tried several VBA's listed on this sight, but cannot seem to get a VBA that does everything I need it to do, and do it quickly. I have attached an example of my spreadsheet.

Processing Folder One File At A Time

I want to open each file in a folder, one at a time, and save each file with a new name (based on cells in the worksheet) to a different folder. This is what I have so far:

Sub aaa()
Dim i As Long, files As String, data As String
Dim fName As String

ChDir _

Application. ScreenUpdating = False
i = 0
files = Dir("*.txt")
Do While files <> ""
Open files For Input As 1

This code doesn't open any files unless there is a value already in the cells that fName uses.

Excel VBA Errors For Long Macro Processing?

Dec 30, 2013

I have a very long (> 2 hr) macro that sifts through thousands of files and creates a table of contents (more or less). Anyway, the macro will operate just fine when I am also working at the same PC but if I walk away for an hour, Excel will sometimes generate an error (application defined or object defined error). I believe that it has something to do with the PC going idle although it really isn't going idle because I turn off sleep and hibernate while running the macro. Also, there are only two locations where the error seems to occur. See below:

Dim oApp As ObjectSet oApp = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Dim files As New Collection
Dim fZip As Variant
For Each fZip In oApp.Namespace(zipFile).items

Chart Based On Pivot Table Event Processing

May 8, 2007

I have an Access application with a form containing an Excel chart based on a pivot table based on an Access query based on an Access table which is refreshed every 5 minutes using a Timer event. When the table is refreshed the Excel chart is refreshed. The chart monitors some processes and is active throughout the day. As the day progresses more and more data points are available for plotting on the x-axis. The x-axis labels get very crowded as the day progresses and I need to programmatically change the x-axis scale at various times of the day. To that end I am trying to find an event that is activated at some point during the automatic refresh of the chart/pivot table.

I have tried the Workbook_Change event, the Worksheet_Change event, and the Chart_SeriesChange event. None of these are executed during the refresh process or I have done something wrong in trying to use them. At the moment they only have a MSGBOX message in them so that I can determine if they are even being executed.

Automating Brackets

Mar 18, 2004

I found a template at it's just a bracket. I feel it has some underlying functionality, as they have a template in visio as well, but I can't figure it out.

So, what I'd like to do is have a workbook with say 100 worksheets. Each worksheet will have a person's bracket. Each person will write in all their picks. Their will be a master bracket where the actual winners will go, as the results are posted. When the master bracket is updated, Excel will flip through each worksheet, checking to see if the win in the master bracket matches the individual bracket. Points will be awarded or not.

Can that be done? I've also done a google search and can't get anymore help. I know that the web has multitudes of free versions, which I'd use, the only problem is that people would hesitate to register. doing it in excel, on the office system, there's no need to register, your cpu login takes care of authentication.

Automating Graphs

Jun 30, 2006

I'm trying to make alot of graphs(400) and I'm not really sure where to start but here with what I've got so far.

Sub macro2()
Dim x As Long, t As Long, y As Long, z As Long
y = 3
z = 5
x = 4
While x < 1000
With Worksheets("cabernet (2)")
t = Cells(x, 1).Value
ActiveChart.ChartType = xlLineMarkers
ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source:=Sheets("cabernet (2)").Range("By:Hz"), PlotBy:=xlRows
ActiveChart.Location where:=xlLocationAsObject, Name:="Cabernet (2)"
ActiveWindow.Visible = False
ActiveChart.HasTitle = True
ActiveChart.charttitle.Text = " " & t
Windows("complete Favorite Genes.xls").Activate
y = y + 3
z = z + 3
x = x + 4
End With
End Sub

I don't really know if putting a variable directly into a range works, so far it doesn't.

As you can tell I need a line graph of the range B3:H5, then the next is the those same columns but 3 rows down, so the next graph is at B6:H8. I'd also like to through in a title here, but I may just be playing with fire. The title is located in column A starting at 4 and corrosponds with each graph, so it too goes is increments of 3, i.e., the first title is at 4 the second at 7 the third at 10. Somebody help me out this isn't working very well at all.
