I need to delete a leading space from multiple cells, 200 or more. The leading space is in front of text that is often more than one word so I can't just copy into Word and do a find and replace on the spaces.
I looked in many places and found out about the Trim function but when I tried it, it didn't work for me. I created a column next to the column that I want to remove the leading spaces from.
Then I put =TRIM(B2) in the first cell, =TRIM (B3) in the next one, etc. But all it did was put the exact same thing as before (with the leading space still in it) in that column?
I did copy/paste lots and lots of pages from an online database into excel and the data all has a hidden leading space that is not recognized when i do find and replace or =trim. I am trying to compare this data against other data in excel and all the formulas are "false" unless i remove that space manually
I wonder if you can help me in this question. I have a MIN function which calculates the smallest value in a list of percentages and then divides each percentage by the smallest in the list. It works fine until one of the percentages becomes zero with the resulting division-by-zero error. Do you think it is possible to make the MIN function to exclude all instances (there may be more than one zero) of zeroes from its calculation? I have attached the spreadsheet.
I have recently been advised to eliminate goto statements. While I have not had any trouble with them so far, it is my understanding that a different structure will speed up my macro, which never hurts. Here I have printed a recent macro I wrote with two goto statements in it heart. Could someone show me how they would rewrite this bit of code while still getting the same results? Here the code compares the active cell value against B and if it does not match, it goes to the next value and compares. If it goes through more than 100 searchs and the term is not found, then it has checked the whole list and needs to stop search, thus the progression of C. A few options are offered before closing down the macro, but ultimtaly, C needs to get to 100 to exit the sub. Thus the goto Alpha that repeats the addition to C.
Alpha: If ActiveCell.Value CStr(B) Then ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select If ActiveCell.Value = "" Then GoTo Beta C = C + 1 If C = 100 Then I = MsgBox("Complete. Do you want to continue with Received data?", vbYesNo) If I = vbYes Then Windows(D).Close Call ReceivedDataUpdate GoTo Epsilon End If
I have 5 columns and 1000 rows of data, All cells has formulas, resulting blank or value, I need a formula to copy only the rows with values building another column (list) with no blank cells Is it possible without macro?
I have a 23 worksheet workbook that I am exporting to csv files. Somehow the data (formulas) appear to be included in the export, even though when I click on a cell in the csv file it does not show the formula. I do not want the data to be exported. Any suggestions on how to modify my macro so that only the values of the cells without the data get exported? Here's the macro:
Sub SaveAllSheets2CSV() Dim wsSheet As Worksheet With ActiveWorkbook For Each wsSheet In .Worksheets wsSheet.SaveAs Filename:=.Path & "" & wsSheet.Name, FileFormat:=xlCSV AddtoMRU = False Next wsSheet End With End Sub
Eliminating empty cell in the concatenate. I am concatenating many cell together. Example is Column A has a word " Starter" Column B is the type of tractor it fits " Case" Column C thru E have other names IE John Deere, Ford only if the part fits more than one type of tractor. In my final Concatenate i end up with many comma's and nothing follows. I have placed a ", " in between each reference of the cell. If the cell is 0 or null. I want the concatenate to ignore the cell and extra commas.
My current function reads + Concatenate(A1,", For ",B2,", ",C2,", ",D2,", ",E2)
What I have now. Starter, For John Deere, , , , , , , . Starter, For John Deere, Ford, , , , , , .
I have a formula that is dependent upon a column of cells containing text. Cells within this column randomly have an additional space (" ") following the words. With this invisible space, the formula doesn't work as intended.
Since I have an extremely long list of names, is there a way to easily remove additional spaces after words without manually going through each cell and deleting them?
I want to do is create a template that can be used for generating an attendance sheet with corresponding statistics on a semester by semester basis.
I've attached the workbook im using. For the purposes of my query only columns B-F are relevant. What i want is a formula that can compile all the names and information in columns b-f on a seperate sheet (sheet1)
I want to make sure that duplicates are eliminated from my final list so that even if a name appears multiple times in the sheets titled sessions 1-5 it only appears once in sheet1.
I want to do this in a formula so that it can be used over and over again. If possible I would also like the formula to exclude blank rows in columns b-f in the final list.
I have attached a spreadsheet of sample data. Column I has duplicates and the data in columns A to H are in any of the duplicates. I want to eliminate the duplicates and align the data in the other colums to the single row. Eg I2 and I3 are the same value, I want to end up with only one row with the value 27217 and the data in F2 and G3 to end up in the single row. If value 27217 is in I2 only then F2 will still contain 5 but 6 will be in G2 not G3.
assuming we're comparing column a, i want to eliminate rows in which its column a value matches the column a value of a previous row.
what i have:
abcd 1351 2442 3235 4324 3542 2253 1344
what i want
abcd 1351 2442 3235 4324
i tried the advanced filter - copy unique record to another location but it would only copy the unique column a values to another location and not values on the same row attached to that column a value.
What is the easiest method to eliminate non-corresponding items from appearing in pivot fileds. For example, if I select "Texas" and "Arizona" from my state pivotfield, the "City" pivotfield next to it should only display cities within these states, and not every city in every state within the original data.
I presume this involves dynamic ranges and also some sort of array matching?
I've been asked to streamline some processes for a company I used to work with before I went on maternity leave (been two years now, my brain feels like its gone to mush). One of the things they have is a document where they input EVERYTHING manually into a word, sometimes the same thing several times. (felt like I had gone back into the dark ages). I know I can set up a template in Excel where all the required information can be imported into specific places within the word document, but Im struggling to find a solution to one part.
They get their clients to fill out an expenses form showing all their monthly expenses, some fields will be filled in but others are not relevant to them so they are left as zero.
How do I go about just importing ONLY the fields that have values input against them?
Mortgage $2000 Rent $0 Electricity $300 School Fees $0 Contents Insurance $200 Water $80 Pet Care $50 Groceries $1000 Takeaways $0
Then when the data is imported into word it would show up like this (formatted better of course)
Mortgage $2000 Electricity $300 Contents Insurance $200 Water $80 Pet Care $50 Groceries $1000
I am not an excel whiz, so I will need layman's terms if possible. I may have found a solution to my problem under another thread, but I couldn't understand it. I have only briefly worked with macros, a very long time ago. Here goes...
I have an inventory list that has not been updated for sales of the inventory, only for purchases. I have sales lists, generally by month, in separate spreadsheets. I am looking for a simple, efficient way of either eliminating or at least matching up the data in the sales list to the inventory list in order to remove sold items from inventory (on paper). I am hoping the result will be a fairly accurate inventory list, and related value, so that a physical inventory count won't be necessary at this time. Obviously I could copy all of the sales info into one spreadsheet, sort by inventory number, then manually delete all sold items from the inventory listing. I am REALLY hoping there is a better option.
I have formatted the cells to be '0000' (showing the leading zero) however when my VBA code runs it copies the cell value into a string but when I stop the code running to check the value the leading zero(s) are gone. I can see they are the same on both worksheets in the correct format. I've tried a few others like integer and long but same same.
I have a CSV file I'm importing into Excell that contains leading zeros in a number field. I cannot get the zeros to display in Excel, but the user of the report needs to see them. Is there a way to dsiplay the leading zeros on a number field?
