Concatenate Cells & Replace Certain Character With Line Breaks

Jan 24, 2008

I have 2 sheets in a work book. Sheet 1 I paste information from an email into A4.
Sheet 2 gathers the information and places it in the cell formating the text so I can import it properly to another program.

I want to take notes that a person fills in (they fill out an online form with their personal information and sometimes leave comments, but not always) and paste this into Sheet 1. When I paste the comments into Sheet 1 it is pasted into mulitple cells. I want sheet 2 to format the text from these mulitples cells into one cell with spaces placed correctly ....

Replace Small Square Character With Line Break After Import

Nov 18, 2008

When importing text from a CSV, the 'line returns' appear in a cell as a small square with faded left and right sides. The do force a line break as intended. However, they are a nuisance in reading and printing.

When I use ALT+ENTER to force a line break, there is no visible character (on screen or printed) for the line break, which is as it should be.

How can I replace this 'special character' line break with one not visible?

Speed Up Macro Deleting Every Nth Line

Jul 4, 2012

I am dealing with data sets from various instruments that have different sample rates. I am deleting data points I don't need from some of the sets with higher sample rates so that all the data is on the same time scale.

The macro I have is super simple, but incredibly slow. I'm simply deleting every other cell down a column.

VB:

Sub OATcondense()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Do While ActiveCell <> ""
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Delete Shift:=xlUp
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
Loop
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Append All Digits Before Character To All Numbers Between The Same Character

May 18, 2008

I have got a list of numeric abbreviations, for instance 10739011/21/31/41. What it should really display are the numbers 10739011, 10739021, 10739031 and 10739041 (the first six figures stay the same). All the numbers in my list are 8 figures long. I want to change the list from the list seperated by the backward slash to the complete numbers. I have uploaded an example of the list with backward slash between the numbers. Is there a way that Excel can automatically change these numbers to the full numbers?

Because all the numbers are 8 figures long, I thought the first 6 figures of the 1st number can be copied and those 6 figures pasted before the other two figures after the backslash. Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;sorry, pressed OK too quickly. The problem is that there are sometimes 4 numbers in the cell, sometimes 6 and once three. I would like Excel to complete all the numbers in the cell and then move on to the cell underneath it and so on. Also, I would like each number to have it's own cell.

Read Pdf Or Doc File Line By Line And Then Parse Data Into Proper Cells And Rows?

Feb 23, 2013

I have the data to import / read in a pdf, in a doc, or in an Excel worksheet whichever is easier to use. I need to import the data, parse it into the correct cells for that row and then repeat the import until the end of the file. Not all the cells are in each group of data to import, so those cells will be null for that row. Some of the data for one cell may be in up to 14 lines in the data file. I have be concatenating these data rows into one cell. There are 48,000 lines in the file to import or I would do this manually. I am assuming that doing this in VBA would be the most efficient method.

Search Unopen Sheet For Value / Change Color Of Line / Copy Line Paste?

Nov 17, 2012

Our small family business has a mailing campaign that we track with excel. However, we're very concerned about users opening the macro-filled master spreadsheet. Instead, we'd like a macro to do everything for them.

When a letter comes back in the mail with a bad address, the user types the Street number and street name such as "1234 Main St" into $A2 of c:dropbox eturned.xlsm, presses the macro button, and it should do the following:

Opens and Searches "Sheet1", "column S", in the file c:dropboxmaster1.xlsm, and finds the LAST instance of the address typed.Selects that entire rowCopies the entire row.Pastes the contents into the row of the active cell in the destination spreadsheet, overwriting what was there before. Such as $2:$2 if the address was typed in $A2.In the master1.xlsm spreadsheet, sets the entire copied row color to "gray".closes master1.xlsm and saves changes.

The end result is that the user now has an identical row of information in their spreadsheet, and the master spreadsheet's row is colored gray indicating it has been completed.

Other notes:I'm open to more efficient steps than this if you have them.There are approx 5,000 records to search through in master1.xlsx at any given time.

Compiling Data From Multiple Workbook Into A Line By Line Master Schedule

Mar 30, 2013

I have about 180 workbooks which I need to compile into a Master Schedule.

All the tab 1's are different, these feed into tab 2, which the data has the same formatting throughout. The 2nd tab has the same data for A:F 1 but cells A:2 - F:2 down to row 9 are populated from tab 1, therefore different in each. I am trying to get a Master schedule that lifts the data in the fed cells into a line by line spreadsheet?

Is there a way I can get excel to look at a folder, then every workbook in it, the at the 2nd tab in every workbook, then list the cells as described above? I am not after a consolidation of this data, but a full list?

Combine 2 Cells With Line Breaks In Each Of Them And Keep Line Break Formatting?

Aug 5, 2014

I'm trying to combine 2 cells that both have text on multiple lines separated by line breaks. I want to keep the formatting so that when both cells are combined, line one from cell 1 and line 1 from cell 2 are on the same line in the new combined cell. This is easy to do when there is only 1 line in each cell but how do you do this for cells with multiple lines? Here is an example of what I am trying to do:

A
B
C

First Name:
Last Name:
Address:
John

123 Harold Street
First Name: John
Last Name: Smith

Read Range Of Data Line By Line Which Is Increasing Dynamically

Aug 20, 2014

I need to read or clear all the line in specific range which will be increasing dynamically. Problem is "Selected File List" table range is not specified. New file chosen with browse will be added to "Selected File List" dynamically. Number of file can't be predicted.

vbaStk.JPG

What I've tried so far is, keep track of the browse button click and add the file path to arraylist. After that, (Row number 9 which is start line + arraylist size) to get the number of line of end of the table. But due to some requirement, I want to read the file from excel file. Something like -Read until found blank line or border bottom or something.

I'm new to VBA and I'm not so sure what I'm doing with vba codes

How To Make Function That Works On One Line Work On Multiple Line

May 19, 2014

I would like this function to work from line 3 to line 60 and return the total of lines where the conditions are met. I'm thinking of a =COUNTIF function but can't get something to work. If there is a simpler way, it's even better. The IfColor is a function I wrote in VBA,

Inserting New Line With ONLY Formula From The Line Above - Basic VBA / Macro

Apr 30, 2013

I have a worksheet that I need to be able to easily copy and paste the formula/formatting from the row above, but not the Values entered, (if any). I am using columns A to DG.

I just really need to be able to copy all the formula in these cells down - nothing exciting or fancy.

I've tried formatting as a table as per some searches and that was difficult! My column headings changed, and when I inserted a row, two of the formula's wouldn't copy down - plus the shading and borders went wonky in places.

Report A List Line By Line Based On Name Criteria

Jun 21, 2008

Currently I am using Excel 2000. I did a search and couldn't seem to find the answer I was looking for. Hopefully someone can help. It would be greatly appreciated since I have been trying to figure out how to do this for days.

I am trying to create a worksheet that will pull info from a row on one sheet to another sheet based on the name; then continue to list the info on each line afterward until there is no more of the that particular criteria. See below (this is just an example to simplify the data but would need the same process):

This would be the data on sheet 1:

Name Bonus Commision

Tom $45 $50
Mary $25 $75
Mary $30 $80
Tom $60 $50
Tom $90 $25

What I would like to do is have 2 more sheets. One would be Tom's sheet and the other would be Mary's sheet and it would look like this:

Tom's Sheet:

Tom $45 $50
Tom $60 $50
Tom $90 $25

Mary's Sheet:

Mary $25 $75
Mary $30 $80

I am not completely familiar with all of the functions in Excel and compared to you guys I am a complete novice.

Is this possible to do in Excel without using a macro?

Highlight Last Line Of Text And Copy To Line Below?

Mar 14, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where on a weekly basis data is copied in to various tabs. I then have a "formula" tab where I have a single line of formulas which look up the various data tabs and extract the results I want to show.

Currently each week, before I import the new data into the various tabs, I copy the last row in the "formula" tab and paste to the line below it. This contains all the working formulas. I then paste values only on the line that I copied, thus "locking in" the values it calculated with that weeks data. This means that each row then contains the results with that week's data, and this will grow week by week.

What I am looking for is a formula that automates this process. So let's say that row 30 is the final row of data on my formula tab, it contains the formulas I want to use. I would need a macros that does the following:

1. Looks up last row (row 30)
2. Copies last row (row 30)
3. Pastes to next empty row (row 31)
4. Pastes values only to second last row (row 30)

I'm not too great with writing macros, I've found plenty that can find the last row, but I can't get them to work to highlight that row.

Oranges sold on the y axis,
and one line per store (e.g. a green one for store A, a red one for B and a blue one of C, doesn't matter).

Here's what I'd like to accomplish: For each row that contains a URL that ends with a / I would like to remove it. If I use the find/replace feature, it would remove all /'s, which I don't want since a good majority of the URL's contain the /'s in various parts of the URL, such as in the example above. I'd also like to accomplish adding a / to the end of every URL for a list that does not have the /'s at the end.

Character Limits

Mar 4, 2007

I copied this from Excel:

Length of cell contents (text) 32,767 characters. Only 1,024 display in a cell; all 32,767 display in the formula bar.

I have an Address Book from an old Personal Information Manager that exports the file as ASCII.

My problem is when I view the .asc file in Excel, Excel has created two rows for several entries.

That creates a problem as I wanted to select Column "A" then do Text to columns with a comma delimiter (the asc files has the comma in place)
However, since Excel put in the second line, I'll not be able to put in a header column.

When I look at the .asc file there is no way that there is more than 32,767 characters in each row. So why did Excel split it up? ....
