Exclude Cells That Exactly Match In Search

Mar 8, 2012

Say I have the following:
Cell A1: male
Cell A2: male
Cell A3: female
Cell A4: male

I want to conduct a search using the value in cell B1, and return the row numbers for which the value in B1 exists.

So my formula in C1 is:
=small(if(isnumber(search($B$1, $A$1:$A$A4)), row($A$1:$A$A4)), row(1:1))

and I make it an array by CTRL+SHIFT+enter

So in B1 I type "male" (without the quotes). From C1 to C4 the values populate as 1,2,3,4

However, I only want the rows where "male" exists, in other words, i want an exact match and I want to exclude those cells that have "female"

I'm wanting:
C1 = 1
C2 = 2
C3 = 4
C4 = blank

Is there a way to do this?

Search A Sheet For A Match And Then Copy All The Cells To The Right Of The Match

Jul 13, 2009

I need a macro that can search a sheet for a match and then copy all 7 cells to the right of the match. I have attached an example of the sheet that will serve as the database to search, and a userform example that will be similar to the userfrom that will display the copied cells when a match is found. I plan to copy and paste the 7 cells to a different sheet so that the userform can display the results with the control source property. I do not need a way to add to this database. I know very little about searching a database so.

Code For A Textbox To Search A Range Of Cells For A Match

Aug 10, 2014

I created a user form that has two textboxes on it. One is to enter a person's name that gets put into column A, starting at row 4, and the other is to enter a number into column B, starting at row 4.

What I would like to do is for the form to search the names that have been entered in column A for duplicates in the same range. If the name is not there already, then I would like it to operate as normal. If it already exists, then I would like the number in the text box to go into column C in the same row as the name.

Here is the code I have already on the Submit button:

Private Sub SubmitButton_click()

Dim emptyRow As Long
emptyRow = WorksheetFunction.CountA(Range("A:A")) + 4
Cells(emptyRow, 1).Value = Guestname.Value
Cells(emptyRow, 2).Value = Roomnum.Value
Unload Name_usrfrm
End Sub

Is this possible? I have to make it more complicated, but once I get the basics, I might be able to figure it out myself.

Include/Exclude Specific Instring Characters From A Querry Search

Dec 18, 2009

I have a querry- file search application macro which searches all directories and subdirectories found within the provided string path and brings in specific data from spreadsheets in those directories. I would like to have the ability to exclude some of the subdirectories which are currently being querried.

I'm wondering if it is possible to add additional code that will allow me to either include or exclude specific directories being querried.

Search Multiple Criteria If Match Append Multiple Cells To One Cell?

Apr 28, 2012

I am having such a difficult time creating a macro that will reduce the 5+hours I have to spend each week manually copying & pasting all of this data. I making an IMMENSE difference in this worker bee's life!

I have a workbook with two sheets (Sheet1 & Sheet2). Sheet1 has license #'s in column A and the state that the license belongs to in column B like this:

COLUMN ACOLUMN B11111Alaska11112Alabama11113Arkansas11114Arkansas
Sheet2 has three columns. Column A has the license #'s, column B has the state that the license belongs to and Columns C shows a line-of-authority tied to that license #.


I'm trying to write a macro that will compare the license # and state in Sheet1 to the license # and state in Sheet2. If it matches, append the contents of Column C to the corresponding row in Sheet1.

Here's the thing...Sheet2 contains the entries for all licenses in the company (so this table is HUGE). And there are multiple entries for each state license # (notice how there's two entries above for AK license # 11111 - one for the Property line and one for the Casualty line.

After my macro is run, I want Sheet1 to show all the lines-of-authority on a single line. So if I ran my macro on the above example, after it's run I would have this in Sheet1:

C11111AlaskaProperty Casualty11112AlabamaProperty Casualty11113

Exclude Cells That Have 0 In Them From Average?

Jan 13, 2004

I have a list of weeks 1-4 for the fiscal month of January. I have a total column. Each week the appropriate week is updated and the total is updated via formula. The total column is just formulas adding Weeks 1-4 up. I also have an average column with the AVERAGE formula beside the total it that should give me the weekly average for January. However, it's trying to average all the weeks instead of just the weeks that I am on.

For example, Week 1 is 1,000,000. Week 2 is 500,000. Week 3 & 4 are 0 because there is no data in there yet. The AVERAGE formula keeps showing 375,000 instead of 750,000. It's averaging all the weeks and I just want it to average Weeks 1 & 2 right now, but automatically average Weeks 3 & 4 when they are populated.

Exclude Hidden Cells In Average

Jul 18, 2007

I have a large data table that has autofilters on the headings.

I also have a "Data Summary" Sheet in which I would like to get a conditional average.

Here is my *working* array formula:

=AVERAGE(IF('Data Table'!$C$10:$C$65536=A2,'Data Table'!$BP$10:$BP$65536))

The problem is, it averages all cell values (conditional upon the C column's cell being equal to A2 of course), whereas I only want to average the VISIBLE cells that match the condition.

I have tried using a little VBA with:

Function Vis(Rin As Range) As Range
'Returns the subset of Rin that is visible
Dim Cell As Range
Set Vis = Nothing
For Each Cell In Rin
If Not (Cell.EntireRow.Hidden Or Cell.EntireColumn.Hidden) Then
If Vis Is Nothing Then
Set Vis = Cell
Set Vis = Union(Vis, Cell)
End If
End If
Next Cell
End Function

and then trying the formula:
=AVERAGE(IF(Vis('Data Table'!$C$10:$C$65536)=A2,Vis('Data Table'!$BP$10:$BP$65536)))
but it does not work.

Average Of Last 5 Values But To Exclude Any Blank Cells

Jul 3, 2014

I have a scenario where I have a rolling list of sales figures which get added to each week that passes.

I need a formula that will calculate the last 5 weeks of sales and generate an average - which I think I have an idea how to do.

The sticking point is that so as not to skew the averages, when there has been an exceptionally busy or quiet day for a reason we know about I exclude the sales from that week.

This then interferes with the averages as it either takes it as a zero and lowers it or seems to stop formulas from working.

So to summarise:

Average of last 5 weeks sales
Excluding any blanks
Dynamic enough to always pick up the last 5 values in the list (i.e. the last 5 weeks)

Finding Maximum Value (but Exclude Blank Cells)

Mar 21, 2014

I am writing a formula for finding a maximum out of three average values. The cells that will be populated with data are A1 to A5; B1 to B5; C1 to C5. The final cell where I want to write the formula needs to show the maximum of the three averages (average of data in each row).

The difficulty is that sometimes only the A and B rows are populated (and sometime only A row is populated) and if B and/or C are blank, the formula fails and shows "#DIV/0!".

How can I write so that if C is blank, then evaluate only A and B data. And If both B and C are blank, then just display the average of row A.

AVERAGE Calculation To Exclude Blank Cells

Sep 3, 2009

I have an array formula that calculates the average of numbers between two dates:

{=AVERAGE(IF('Date Range'!$B:$B>$H$4,IF('Date Range'!$B:$B<=$B$3,'Numbers to Sum'!$C:$C)))*100}

The start date is the day after the date in H4 and the end date is in cell B3. The dates are in column B and the numbers to sum associated with these dates are in column C.

Some of the cells in column C are blank and my formula is taking these blanks into account in calculating the average, while I would prefer not to count them in the calculation.

Can someone please suggest how I could amend the formula above to accommodate this?

Filtering Cells To Exclude Specific Data

Jan 31, 2014

I have a column that contains combined data of numbers and letters. I want to filter that column to exclude cells that contain the letter "d" or "f". I am trying to create a pivot table from the results of the filter to only display the ID #s that do not contain the letters "f" or "d".

The data inside the fields is not the same length and is not listed in a particular order. I have over 14,000 records I need to filter.

Data set example: The items in red are an example of the cells I would like to exclude from my worksheet. Is there a way to filter without deleting the data?

Conditional Formating :: Exclude N/A Cells From Calculations

Dec 4, 2006

I have a single column of data that is, perhaps, 100 rows long.

I have ticks, crosses and 'N/A' in various cells within this column. There are no cells that are blank.

I want to count the number of ticks within the column and want to be able to say:

If the number of ticks is = 100% then it's green.
If the number is >75% and <100% then it's amber.
If the number <75% then it's red.

I also want to exclude the N/A cells from the % calculation.

Get Autofilter To Exclude Blank Cells That Contain Formulas

Feb 3, 2012

I have the following line in a macro:

Range("b22:L" & Range("J" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row).AutoFilter

This selects rows based on whether they contain data and creates an autofilter of the range.

The data Im using this on will have blank cells as the bottom rows but they will contain formulas that blank the cells based on ISNA() conditions,

How do I get the above code to only select cells with visible data and ignore those that are blank but contain formulas.

Excel 2010 :: How To Exclude Colored Cells In Addition Equations

Aug 6, 2014

Any way to exclude colored cells from addition in a column. I will attach a simple example document.

I am building a spreadsheet to keep track of my monthly spending, and debt balance. I keep track of the total amount of bills I pay each month. As I pay them, their respective line is highlighted green in the spreadsheet. I would like to create a macro/formula which would sum the remaining cells in the column which are not highlighted to display the remaining monies which need to be paid out. I'm not sure if this matters but I am using office 2010.

Advanced Filter: Exclude Blank/Empty Cells Criteria

Sep 11, 2006

Im using an advanced filter that uses the following criteria
Days Late Note(s) Note(s)
>90 <>*agreement* <>*QTR*

This shows all data over 90 that do not incl the words agreement or QTR in a column marked Note(s).

My problem is that I do not want to show records that are Null in the Note(s) column.

<> Does not work (possibly because it is text and not Numbers)

as this does work if used on records that contain numbers.

Using The =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH Function To Search Multiple Cells)

Aug 21, 2009

I' having trouble using the =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH formula to search multiple cells.

I can get it to work to search one cell (as below):

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Same",G10)),"No Change",'Aug 09 Matrix'!F10)

(In this case the respone is No Change as Cell G10 contains "Same")

However cannot get it to work for several cells. I have pasted below and highlighted the function I would like it to perform:

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Same",G10:R10)),"No Change",'Aug 09 Matrix'!F10)

Essentially the other cells in that row (G10:R10) all contain "Same", however for some reason it is identifying this as FALSE and putting in the data from the 'Aug 09 Matrix' sheet.

Search And Match Data Using Two Worksheets

Apr 2, 2014

I'm trying to search & match data from two different spreadsheets. I will attach my workbook for reference.

The first worksheet is a list of all of my clients I have previously worked with and the second worksheet is a list using a set criteria. The criteria I am using is the UK postal code "AL10".

The clients address (Column B) will be used as a reference to match the address which is located on the AL10 worksheet which is also column B. If there is a direct match then a VLookup function will be performed to display something that can be easily referenced.

The problem I am having is that the address format is different on the clients worksheet then what it is on the AL10 worksheet. I have the feeling I will need to create a search function with multiple arrays but I have limited knowledge of how to do that.

There are some additional notes located in my workbook.

I know that two of the client addresses should match data located on the on AL10 worksheet and the other two shouldn't give a match at all as they don't exist. These are highlighted in yellow.

I have used the Find and replace function to do this but this is rather manual and slow and I would like the search feature to automate this process.

Search And Match Several Values Which Are In Different Order

Oct 14, 2009

Lets say these are the values in sheet 1, ROW 1:
B1: David
C1: 44673
F1: Mika
G1 77463

And these are the Lets say these are the values in sheet 2 ROW 155:
B1: 77463
C1: 44673
I1: David
J1 44673

As you can see, there are the same 9 values in both rows in both sheets ( (no value is important as well).
However, they are not located in the same row number (1 and 155) and the order in which they are written is different.

What I would like to do is to search all the rows in sheet 2,(columns B-J only) and if there is a match for all values in a specific row to a row in sheet 1 (again, order is not important), than the Value in column A from the specific row in sheet 1 will be copied to Column A in sheet 2 for that maching row.

Task is a named range which works fine, but how could I actually just use a string instead of the named range? The named range only consists of Major and Sub. My first guess would be =COUNTIF({"Major";"Sub"},I4)=0 but this is not working.

Search And 'close' Match Procedure

Aug 10, 2007

Two Excel files open. Text in column A for each, not necessarily matching perfectly between files. Data in column B in one file needs to be copied and pasted into the second file, once a match is found, Need a search and 'close' match procedure.

Once done, we can invoke a dialogue box that asks the user, "is this the match you're looking for". If yes, copy and paste the data from column B from the first file to the second file. If no, go back and look for the next 'close match', looping through the second file column A. If not found, do manually. Only problem is to find the 'close match'. Example:

Text in file #1 is "The black dog jumped over the fence"
Text in file #2 is "The dog jumped over the fence"
If this is a good enough match for the data in Column B to be used, we want this to be identified, giving the user an opportunity to accept or reject.
