Break 1 Cell Up Into Invidual Cells..

I have an email contact list with over 100 people in it. They are all in the same cell and are separated by semi-colons. How can I tell Excel to create a new cell every time there's a semi-colon?

In other words, after all is said and done, I should have over 100 separate cells with only 1 email contact in each cell.

Break Apart City State And Zip Into Different Cells
I have a column that has data like this in it:

cityname, stateAbbreviation, XXXXX
sacramento, CA 95814

The tricky part is that sometimes there's a comma delimiting these fields and sometimes there is just a space between these fields.

So, I suppose the script would have to assume a length of 2 chars for the state and when it finds that it knows that what was before that string of 2 chars was the city.

Also, sometimes there is a longer zip with 10 digits code like this:
cityname stateAbbreviation XXXXX-XXXXX
sacramento CA 95814-82202

How might I write some VB code to loop through this column and break up this cell into 3 other cells?

Referencing Cells By Page Break
I have a macro that uses subtotals on a dynamic list to generate page breaks by Department. Rows 1:6 of the table are set to print at the top of each page and column A is not set to print at all. Would it be possible to get cell B6 to return the value of the first cell of each page break (from column A) when the page prints. (Column A contains the department names, and though I don't want to print the column itself, I would like the name of each department to appear at the top of the page.)

Cell Text Loses Break Characters When Extracted
I'm trying to automate a very laborious process where text data is taken from a series of cells in excel 97 and is turned into HTML tables - I've got it all working except for one thing, when I extract the contents of the text the paragraphs are lost and are merged into one long piece of text - obviously I need to insert <br /> characters where the paragraphs are to get this working. how I can extract text from with some kind of marker for the paragraph sections? Or is there a way to insert characters where the excel cell has a paragraph mark (ie a return key has been pressed).

Page Break By Asking The Input File For Page Break To Be Done
The code which you provided works fine no problem for a page break. I need to run the macro for the page break by asking the input file for page break to be done.

For Example, If excel filename "A" contain the code which you have given need to ask to input the filename "B" and process need to be done in file "B".

I have added some code to your code which you provided but it gives error message "1004" "Method 'Range' of object '_Application' failed" at following line :

I would like this photo to always appear on a new page of its own - not just tagged onto the pages before it.

Macro Get Break When Save
I have looked and found a few solutions for the "enable macos or show a warning sheet" The one that seems to work the best is Ozgrids Enable Macro under the free downloads section. However I seem to have been able to break it, and thats been my problem.

When you run EnableMacro program and you select "Disable Macros" it displays the page with the yellow box, good. However when you click "enable Macros" and it opens normally, but when you save it in that fashion, this is where it breaks.. now open it again, and select "disable macros" and the normal warning sheet doesn't open. I incorporated this program in my project and it works, until the normal exit save of the program and after the 1st save, it doesn't work.. any

Automatic Page Break
I have a worksheet where the print area is 16 columns and ~90 rows. have it set to print on one page in page set-up, which generally scales to about 80%, and this has worked fine for years. A couple of months ago I was traveling for work, but got a call that the worksheet was printing each cell as a separate page. My co-worker messed around with it and it seemed to fix when she cleared and reset the print area, and has been working fine ever since.

Today it popped up again. It is setting automatic page breaks every few cells so page 1 is A1:A7, page 2 is A8:A11, etc...Both Print Preview and actually printing a page show me my few cells in the lower right hand corner of the page. Viewing the page break preview shows that they are all automatic page breaks, and if I try to move them I get the error that Microsoft Office Excel cannot move the page break because doing so would reduce the scale below the minimum 10%.

As I mentioned I have it set to "fit to" 1 page high and 1 page wide, which it right now is saying sets the scale to 10%. If I instead choose the scaling to be "adjust to" and set to 100% it only wants to take up 4 pages, but if I try to manually drag the break over afew columns it reverts back to wanting to print every few cells.

Break Down How Many Days In Each Month
I have is a start rent date and an end rent date. They want to break down how many days in each month the item was on rent so they have a column for each month. For example say an item was rented on 12/14/08 and returned on 1/12/09. It was rented for a total of 30days 18 days in December and 12 days in January. So I would need a function in each column that would return a 14 in the December Column and a 12 in the January Column. there are over 350 rows and they are doing the process manually right now and taking several days.

Also I just noticed that the date range is currently entered as a text in the format 2008-12-14 so YYYY-MM-DD. Don't know if the text will be a problem.

Just attached an expample. In it I am trying to find a function to fill in the green cells.

Multiple Links - To Break Just One
I've got a file that is currently linked to two other files. The links are summed in the cell as below:

='[Book1.xls]Funding and Interest'!D$17+'[Book2.xls]Funding and Interest'!D$17...and so on.

I want to get rid of the link to Book1, so I'd zeroed the values in Book1 and my plan was then to Break the links to this, leaving zeros and the links that I want, but because both files are linked in the same cell (the same nested SUM), when I go to Edit, Break Links, it breaks the links to both files, even though I only select one form the list.

Pivot / Formula To Right / Page Break
I have a simple pivot. In the columns to the right I have a few formulas. The user simply sees the pivot and extra columns---they have no idea they are looking at a hybrid type thing and they DO NOT EVER manipulate the pivot in any way other than choosing a particular DEPT form the page area.

I set this thing up by first select: ALL for the Dept and the dropiing my formulas down to the end of the sheet (actually a few hunded lines after that to allow for some data over the year)

The trouble is that if the user picks a particular dept, at the end of the dept data, not only does the user see the formula extended down numerous row (I can use cond formating to make the font white, ie hide them) BUT worse when printing it prints numerous extra pages.

So, is there a way to only make it print to where the pivot data ends.....not where the formula ends..WITHOUT the user having to do a SELCT PRINT AREA type thing.....

Ex: User picks Dept 1003, data ends after Code 99, formulas extend down past that in case user selects ALL Depts. We want printing to stop after Code 99 though....NOT to print a bunch of 'extra' pages....

How Do I Get A Loop To Resume At Break Point
I've got some code (at bottom) which works very well for small groups of data but when it gets large it hangs excel. Had heard that I can make code which will get it to pick up on the row after where it left off rather than having it run the entire loop again. Specifically speaking of the raw data sheet. It is sorted by date and by code so that if it works on the first code for the date it won't have to return to that row again for data. Uncertain how to implement that approach. (sample data layout below)

Option Explicit

Sub DoubleDirectionLoop()

Dim Wb As Excel.Workbook
Dim Ws1 As Excel.Worksheet, Ws2 As Excel.Worksheet
Dim iCol As Integer
Dim iRow As Integer, iRow2 As Integer
Dim Loop1 As Integer, Loop2 As Integer

Unable To Break Links To Another File
Last week I copied a worksheet from one spreadsheet into another, and have since been working from the new one. When I open the file I get a message box asking if I want to Update links from the other workbook. But I've deleted all named ranges, formulae, shapes, everything that could possibly link to the other workbook. I've also (in my frustration) completely deleted the sheet that was originally copied and re-made it from scratch. But it STILL comes up with this update box. In Excel's Help it says to go to Edit/Links and press Break Link, which I have tried but it doesn't do a thing. The link is still sitting there in the display box in the Links window - it says that the Type is Worksheet, I don't know if this makes any difference that it's not a formula or anything?

Also, in complete desperation when it wasn't deleting the link, I changed the source to a random file, so it now comes up with an error in updating (which it obviously would) however this doesn't have any effect on my file because as far as I can tell it no longer has links to the other file! I'm tempted to just go to the option that says don't show the Update prompt on opening (the file is to be handed in as coursework on Wednesday) but this doesn't solve the problem, only bypasses it! Each time I made a major change (e.g. recreating the copied worksheet, changing the source) I saved the file under a different name, so I have all old copies just incase I've completely messed it up!

Calculating Time, Potential Lunch Break
I am creating a worksheet where employees schedule work throughout the day
eg task 1 will be start time 9am, finish time 11am. The result is 2 hours to do the task.

The problem i'm having is that I need to do a calculation that if a task includes lunch then the result takes an hour away from the task time.
eg task 2 will be start time 12pm, finish time 3pm, excel displays 3 hours, i need it to say 2 hours because 1-2pm is contractual lunch.

I can't just do a day formula that says minus 1 from total as this is task orientated and will vary depending on start and finish times of each task.

Subtracting Break From Total Hours Worked
This is probably a very simple problem that has me going around in circles. I am attempting to set up a time roster, where I simply want to check:

If "end-time" minus "start-time" is greater than 4:00 (hrs), then deduct 00:30 (minutes) and place that result in another cell.

If it is not greater than 4:00 (hrs) then leave unchanged. I have read thru countless examples on the Forum - but I think that such great learning is driving me mad. Although I do believe that I have the correct format [h].mm - but attempts with IF's have got me confused. This is one of those "Looking down the tunnel towards the flickering light" moments.
