Regex Evaluate Part Of A String

May 19, 2014

I am currently working on creating a dialogue which will allow the user to input a range of worksheets to use for a pivot table.

I want the user to be able to input a variable into the dialogue. For example, I want the input "n-5 - n-1" to mean the 6th from last to the 2nd from last sheets. I am trying to find n - ([0-9]+)? and replace it with Worksheets.Count - $1. In other words, if there are 10 sheets, I want to transform "n-5 - n-1" into "5 - 9".

Here is the code I have so far:

[Code] ....

This has been working for strings like "n" or "n-4" but not "4 - n-3" or "n-5 - n-1".

Here is the code I use afterwards to interpret the string once the n's have been replaced:

[Code] ....

I'm new to Regex and VBA in general.

Evaluate Concatenation Formula As String?

Feb 19, 2012

I have the following in VBA:

Code:
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
"=mod_a1&"" ""&mod_b1&"" ""&mod_c1&"" ""&mod_d1&"" ""&mod_e1&"" ""&mod_f1&"" ""&mod_f1&"" ""&mod_g1&"" ""&mod_h1&"" ""&TEXT(mod_i1,""m/dd/yyyy"")&"" ""&mod_j1&"" ""&TEXT(mod_k1,""h:mm:ss"")"

I only want the user to see the string, not the concatenation formula. So how do I get VBA to turn this formula into an actual string.

I have seen some functions using ByVal and Evaluate with this sort of thing but this is just different enough that I can't figure it out.

I m trying to evaluate part of a string to determine if a number and if 6 char's in length. If Yes, return the 6 digit number, else 0

My formula below returns a #VALUE! error
It worked before I added the 6 char length condition, but sometimes return values of greater length that I do not need.

Evaluate Text As Formula

Jan 17, 2007

I have 2 sheets (book1.xls and book2.xls) book1 has over 20 sheets and has my primary data. Book2 is for a report. The report I want to only display one sheet at a time, by me typing in which sheet to access.

What I want to have:
A2 = Sheet Name
C2 = ="'C:Excelfiles[book1.xls]"&$A$2&"'!$B$1" C2 should have the value from B1 on 'Sheet Name' from the file book1.xls

however, all C2 will display is the text, I cannot get it to actually do the reference. (appears as 'C:Excelfiles[book1.xls]Sheet Name'!$B$1 )

Is there a function to say, evaluate data output from another cell?
(less complicated example)
A1=1
A2=2
A3=A1+A2
A4=3 (formula to evaluate output of A3)

Search Cell For Text String And Paste Text In Based On Finding?

Jun 29, 2014

I need to create a macro to do the following:

Search the activecell for a text string (a), and then either paste in text string (b) at the end of the cell if (a) is found, or text string (c) if (a) is not found.

For example, if the activecell has "AA/" in it, I want the cell to become "AA/01" (pasting in "01" at the end), and if the cell has just "AA" in it, I want it to still become "AA/01" (pasting "/01" at the end). The macro will be linked to a commandbutton.

Check If Text String In Cell With Other Text Is In List

Mar 27, 2008

I have a sheet in which some of the cells have two strings separated by a linefeed. I have come up with a cumbersome formula which will let me check if either of the two strings is a member of a list stored on another sheet. However, it fails if there is only one string in the cell, presumably as there is no linefeed for the formula to find. How can I modify the formula to cope with this situation?

There are also on occasions, three strings in the cell, but I can't seem to access the middle string with the formula. Simplified spreadsheet attached to show the problem. This must be formula-based, as we have a no VBA policy. If you think there is better way of doing this, please let me know.

Evaluate Each Row And If The Last Value For That Row Is X, Then Highlight That Cell

Oct 8, 2008

I want to do it evaluate each row and if the last value for that row is X, then highlight that cell and the Server name for that row.

I have used conditional formatting but it seems that I cannot specify an option to look at the last cell in a row, evaluate that cell's value and then apply the formatting. I can only have conditional formatting highlight every cell in that row that matches the condition.

I only want the last cell, which represents the most current data, to be highlighted, as well as the category name, if the condition is met.

Evaluate One Cell Against An Array

Oct 29, 2009

I have two sets of information, on one hand I have telephone numbers and in the other set I have prefixes and countries. My goal is to tell to which country each number belongs:

i.e.

Numbers Prefix Country
4476324125 44 UK
3354326544 33 France
9713425432 971 UAE
9143253245 91 India
1343543253 1 USA
4432412412
4924241214
7431242424

So I would need to add a column next to "Numbers" saying to which country each number belongs.

My list has a few thousand numbers and a couple of hundred prefixes.
I tried with some array formula, but cannot make it work.

Sum If Cell Contains Text String?

Jul 3, 2014

Below is the code I started:

[Code] ......

The range contains a list of names. I want the sub to start with the first name and sum the value(long) which are in 7 columns to the left of the text string. Once this procedure has been done for the first name, it should go back up to the second name and do the same and so on. Once done I will return the name (cell A1 in another sheet) and its respective sum (cell B1 in another sheet) so that I have the list of names with their respective sum.

Adding A Cell In A Text String

Aug 10, 2009

I was able to find the syntax to add a cell within a text string but I am having a formatting problem. The cells which I am adding were using formulas that left decimals. Although I turned off all of the decimals on the cell, the values when I used the cell within the text string included all of the decimals and in some cases 6 or more decimal places. Is there a way to keep the formatting of the cell?

Search Cell To See If It Contains Certain String Of Text

Jun 13, 2014

I need to find a formula which will search a list of cells looking for a particular text string. If it doesn't find this text string it then needs to search for the next one. For instance if I had a list of product codes: ABCD1234, BCD1234, ABCD2345, CDE23456, BCD2345 I want the formula to look up and see if the cell contains the text ABCD and if so return ABCD as the value, if not I want it to go on and see if the cell contains BCD and return the value BCD, if not then go on and search the value CDE etc. It seems like an easy job to do manually but I have a list of over 3000 codes to do this.

Return A Value If Cell Contains Rather Than = A Text String

Nov 16, 2004

I want a formula or function that will return a count value if a cell contains a string rather than returning a value if the cell equals a value. For example, =COUNTIF(A$1:A$19703,F1) returns a value to cells in column G if the value in column F equals any exactly matching value in A. I need a formula that works like the filter option "contains" so that if any cells in col A merely contain a string rather than exactly match or equal a string from column F I can get a count value returned.

Evaluate UserForm Control Where Name Is In 1 Cell & Property In Another

Jan 29, 2009

In A1, other code inserts the name of a Form control (textBox, comboBox etc), and in B1 it inserts the name of a Property that is always valid for the A1 control. I want to concatenate these two items to produce a formula in C1 that evaluates the current value of the Property on the running form and continues to update with each recalc. It's ok if I have to force a recalc to get the latest values.

The code feeding the items to A1 and B1 and which will be harvesting the Property values from C1 is running in the same Form that holds the controls being referenced.
So if A1= "Label1" and B1 = "BackColor", then in C1 I'd like the same result as if in VBA I said X = Label1.backcolor. I think that what I need is the Evaluate function, but I've read Arron's article on it I just can't seem to make it work here.

Extract Data From Text String In Cell

How I could extract this information? Notice that the first entry is missing ) - that is throughout the records.

Insert Pic Into Comment For Every Cell That Has Text Containing String .jpg Or .png

May 10, 2009

I need a nudge in the right direction with how to amend the below code so that it :
1: cycles though all cells in a workbook, and sees whether the text reference of the cell contains a picture filename (i.e. searches for .png or .jpg in the cell contents)
3: if (1) is correct, it retrieves the picture from "C:/Users/jeff/Documents/Standards/" and pastes it as a cell comment background in the cell to the right (and overwrites any comment backgrounds that might already exist there)

The code below does something a bit different: it looks in a defined range, then adds a comment with a background picture retrieved based on the text in the cell to the left.
