Macro To Delete Rows That Have Cells That Don't Contain Values From A List

Mar 7, 2014

Each day I am going to have a list of about 300 different ID numbers, which i have already got a macro for creating, that outputs them into a single column on a sheet.

The next challenge Ill face now, is that I'll have a list of maybe 500 ID numbers in another spreadsheet.... I need a way to basically tell excel to keep rows that contain the numbers in 1 column on the list of 500, that correspond with those on the list of 300.

Numbers that are not found on the list of 300 ID numbers, must be deleted, along with the entire row.

I essentially need a macro that runs something like this that i found online, but instead of it just looking for the word "apple" as rows to delete, i would need it to check to see if the number is one of the 300 on my list.... and delete the row if it is not on the list

PHP Code: 

Sub Delete_Rows()Dim rng As Range, cell As Range, del As RangeSet rng = Intersect(Range("A1:C20"), 
ActiveSheet.UsedRange)For Each cell In rngIf (cell.Value) = "Apple" _ThenIf del Is Nothing ThenSet del = cell
Else: Set del = Union(del, cell)End IfEnd IfNext cellOn Error Resume Nextdel.EntireRow.DeleteEnd Sub

Delete Characters More/and Less Than

Feb 19, 2007

I have a keyword list in ColA. about 25,000 phrases.
What I want to do is create a macro button.
when i click on it a pop up box would appear called "Deleting Characters"
It will have to 2 rows, 1 saying "More Than",, the other saying "Less Than"

So, beside these words are input boxes.
So I can type the numbers "2" and say "50"
So it will look at all the rows of data in my ColA (Always from A3 downwards)
and deletes all rows with less than 2 characters and more than 50 characters.
When it is finished a floating box appears saying
"123 Characters Less Than 2 Deleted"
"101 Characters More Than 50 Deleted"

Sub NoOfCharacters()
Dim lastrow As Long, TotP, TotC, AvC
lastrow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
If lastrow < 4 Then
MsgBox "Nothing to sort!"
Exit Sub
End If
Range("B3").Formula = "=LEN(A3)"
Range("B3").AutoFill Destination:=Range("B3:B" & lastrow)
Range("A3:B" & lastrow).Sort key1:=Range("B3"), order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess
TotP = lastrow - 2
TotC = Application.Sum(Range("B3:B" & lastrow))
AvC = TotC / TotP
MsgBox "Total No Phrases: " & Chr(9) & Chr(9) & Chr(9) & TotP & Chr(13) & "Total No Characters: " & Chr(9) & Chr(9) & TotC & Chr(13) & "Avg No Characters Per Phrase: " & Chr(9) & AvC
End Sub

Delete First X Characters In Cells

Oct 10, 2007

I am trying to write a macro that will go through each cell in a column with the following format "| 12- 4" or "| 60-11" and will remove the first to character "| ".

There numbers are lengths, the first being feet the second inches. I would like to achieve in a separate column the numerical length (with decimals) multiplied by 1%. My code is as follows I just need help on the conversion.

Sub newLength()
Dim LR, lrow As Integer
Dim feet, inches, Line As Double

LR = Range("B65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row
For lrow = LR To 2 Step -1
If Cells(lrow, "D") <> Cells(lrow - 1, "D") Then
Rows(lrow).Insert Shift:=xlDown
End If
feet = Left(Cells(lrow, "E").Value, 4)
inches = Right(Cells(lrow, "E").Value, 2) / 12 'I need to debug this line, but I suspect there is more I need to do.
Cells(lrow, "F") = feet + inches
Next lrow
End Sub

How To Delete All Words Containing Specific Characters

May 14, 2014

I need a formula which can clean up a huge data set. Essentially i need to delete the entire word which contains the characters "aceae". note that "aceae" is a suffix, but i need to delete the entire word not just the suffix, plus keep the rest of the string. i have tried the "find and replace" function of excel with wildcard, but that deletes everything before/after without deleting the entire word. i have tried a combination of formulas to isolate the unwanted words, but that method is inefficient and inaccurate. below is a schematic of what im looking to do:

Column A ------------------------------ Column B
l. planeri asteraceae africa laselva-----> l. planeri africa laselva
l. planeri moraceae europe singer------> l. planeri europe singer
origin l. fluviatilis bignoniaceae asia----> origin l. fluviatilis asia
alternate l. fluviatilis piperaceae asia---> alternate l. fluviatilis asia

Delete Unwanted Characters Within Certain Criterias

Jun 20, 2007

I have a spreadsheet that i manually edit each and everyday e.g.

WWEX/UQ bbr263666
LWL/KL/B 270407
LNL/SB/UB HLC - 271955
SMMQD/WT HLC - 269516
NILVA/UC EUi273645

For everything that doesnt equal EM, LN, LW and TH in column A, everything should be deleted in column B.

For the remaining EM, LN, LW and TH, i would then like it to delete / (forward slash and all characters after this) so that this would make my life easier.

Delete Characters After Last Specific Character Occurence

Jun 11, 2008

I have one column with many numbers. Some have one dash and some have two.


Is there a way that I can remove all characters after the last (dash) in the number?

If number is 123-123456-65
Then 123-123456

If number is 98B12354-889
Then 98B12354

If someone could just lead me in a direction, I might be able to figure it out. However, my code is elementary and most of the time, I record macros and the play with the code until it does what I want.

Counting Different Characters In The Same List

I'm making a register and need to count the attendences (marked on the register as 1) and the number of authorised abcenses (marked on the register as AA).

Sort List By No Of Characters

Feb 18, 2007

I have a large list of phrases, about 30,000 all in Col A. (From A3 to be exact)

What I want is to sort by number of characters.
I know excel can sort A-Z,,, but I can't see by number of characters??

Is there anyway I can sort this list by No of Characters please??

List does include letters and numbers.
But they are mainly 3-4 keyword phrases.

This is so from a large list all the least amount of characters will be at the top of the list so I can easily see them,, and probably delete most of the 1,2,3,4 character returned results.

Delete Value Of Dependent List Automatically When Mother-list Gets Manually Deleted?

Feb 8, 2013

I'm currently working with 3 dropdown lists depending on each other using data validation and =indirect(). I arranged them like in a top-down approach where you have a mother-list and child-lists (categories-->subCategories-->subCategoryCriteria). The user should easily chose first a category then a subCategory etc... This part works perfectly

My question is: when a user chose in the dropdown list e.g. a category, a subCategory and a subCategoryCriteria and he now maually deletes the value in the highest level, which is the Category (mother-list), all sub level values like subCategory and subCategoryCriteria will stay. It shouldn't be that way, because it's not logical. If you turn a tree upside-down (top-down approach) and cut one of the higher positioned trunks, all lower positioned trunks will fall off as well, right? So, my question is: can I use a conditional formatting or a formula to delete or fade out the value in the lower lists when the higher list value is being deleted?

I tried to use If-formula in combination with indirect in data validation, like =IF(A1="";("");INDIRECT(B1))...just and example.

The value doesnt need to be deleted, it could also be automatically face out like white on white or something. It's just confusing for the user if he deletes the highest choice and the lower choices still stay.

A Custom Sort List Longer Than 255 Characters?

Apr 30, 2009

I have a large list of parcels to be delivered which have names, the last 2 letters of the postcodes, addresses tel. no. etc. I have created a custom sort list of postcodes in the order I want to deliver them. I can only list a total of 85 postcodes since there are 2 characters in each postcode and a return at the end of each line, hence 85*3=255.

Is there any way I can make excel sort my list of parcels using a spreadsheet list of the 2 postcode letters of unlimited length? There is a theoretical maximum of 676 postcodes in my area (26*26) so I would need it to be at least this long. It would also be more convenient if it were an excel based list since the editing of such a list would be more convenient.

Duplicates - Delete Every Lead On List A Whose Email Address Is Also In List B?

Jan 9, 2014

I am working on an email marketing project and i have a small problem. I have two different email list. One (List A) is a large list of potential leads. The other (List B) is a list of leads we are not supposed to market to. I need to delete every lead on List A whose email address is also in List B, so that we do not send unwanted emails to our clients.

The best way i have to do this so far is to go through line by line, which is very impractical.

In case it matters here is out list format. Each list has 10,000 + leads. Each lead occupies a row. The row stretches across 13 columns and each column holds a different variable about the lead (names, state, email address).

Having Characters Appear After Entering Values?

Jan 8, 2014

I work in a fruit and veg business and they are using parchment and quill still, well it certainly feels that way. I have been asked by customers to provide an online order form which i will email to them and they can fill in and email back, i scanned an invoice and used OCR to upload it to excel and it has come out quite well.

Basically there are three columns of product lines and then directly to the right of each product is a column i have entitled Box & KG respectively, if the customer types a number into the box column i want it to automatically add 'Bx' to the end so this if they typed 5 in a cell in the box column it would look like this '5 Bx' (obviously without the quotes), and the same for the KG column but it would denote 5 KG instead, also i would want it to add in the space as well after the value.
