I've just started with VBA and are trying to figure out following:
I'm using a validation list where the user choose one of twelve alternatives. The option she or he made is found in one or more rows in column B. If there is a match between the alternative in the validation list and in column B I want to copy some of the cells in the same row as the match in column B (to be exact, I want to copy the cells in column E, J, N and P) to another sheet.
I've succeeded doing this with one row but I don't know how to do without using that same code over and over again until Excel has made it trough all the rows. And there is over 200 of them.
I'm looking to loop through a worksheet with over 1000 columns and would like to delete columns containing a percent sign (%) in the header row which is row 4. Column range to search would begin at column 12.
I am looking for a way to check for the presence of a member of a list in a field. Not for an exact match, but for the text to be somewhere present. I know I can use the "search" function to find text within text, but I don't see how to find the presence of any member of a range of values (a list) within the text.
I have a cell that contains a string of characters that were combined from two different cells. What would the formula be for excel to ignore the characters that are from one of the cells? In other words, if cell A1 contains ABCD123 and cell A2 contains XYZ (the length of the string in A2 varies in length), the combined string is ABCD123XYZ. In cell B1 I would like excel to ignore the contents of cell A2. This seems simple but I'm not coming up with the right syntax.
I have an excel file, and on some rows, the "B" column contains the text " Total:" (it does have a leading space). I would like to loop through the first 200 rows (maximum length of the file) and delete all the rows that contain " Total:" in column "B". I have tried:
For i = 1 To 200 range("B" & i).activate If range("B" & i).value = " Total:" Then rows(activecell.row).select selection.delete shift:=xlUp End If Next i
When I step through that code, it just skips over the IF function as if B1 does not equal " Witness:"
I'm trying to restructure a list of files at work into a format that makes some sort of sense and can be filtered into useful information.
Part of what I need to do, is match up all the drawing numbers that a certain project references. The numbers are formatted like "####A##" ex. 1234A01,1234A02,5678A01, etc. The cells that I need to extract drawing numbers from contain some description or other text (not just the drawing number) so I need to extract the drawing number from that cells value. (Ex. I need to get the drawing number 1234A01 from a cell whose value is "blah blah 1234A01 blah blah blah")
I was thinking I could just search the string for "####A##" but I'm not really sure how....I tried instr, but I think its searching for the literal value of "####A##" rather than treating the # characters as wildcards...
Code: if rngNames.Cells(intx, 2).Value Like ("*####A##*") then set intStart = instr(1,rngnames.Cells(intx,2).value,"####A##") '.... end if but intStart remains 0, so this method is not working...
news1 = "new" news2 = "polygon" Dim countie As Integer For buddie = 2 To b1.UsedRange.Rows.Count 'If b1. Cells(buddie, 1).Value Like "new*polygon" Then If b1.Cells(buddie, 1).Value Like news1*news2 Then countie = countie + 1 n1.Cells(buddie, 10).Value = "test" End If Next buddie
I have 2 strings, news1 and news2, i need to use the like function to check the occurance of these two strings in all the cells, and just for testing purpose, im printing 'test' it out in another excel sheet.
How do i make that work? the commented line shows what exactly i want, only that i dont want to hard code the string values.
b. If i have a value in the cell: /new/blahblah/anycra/polygon how do i split it so as to assign two variables to have 'new' and 'polygon'.
I have data sets on multiple worksheets within a workbook (over 70). Based on the begining of a string, I need to count all instances with that begining, and if there are fewer than 12 instances, delete the entire row.
Data set example:
In this example, I need to count each instance of rows starting with 1/* - 9/*, and delete rows as mentioned. In other data sets the string might start Gi1/*, and so on. In the following code, if I do not loop, and only test against 1 value type, and ONLY run it once, it works. As soone as I try to loop through all possibilities, or run the macro a second time, it blanks out the entire worksheet, starting at row 3.
Dim c As Long c = Worksheets(i).Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row With Range("A3:A" & c) If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Worksheets(i).Columns(1), "1/*") < 12 Then . AutoFilter field:=1, Criteria1:="1/*" .Offset(1).Resize(.Rows.Count - 1, 1).EntireRow.Delete .AutoFilter
I have also tried to concatenate a variable with my CountIf criteria, but that fails miserably.
I'm looking for a macro to basically produce me a list of shop names on one sheet with their appropriate sales information. Bascially, i have 4 sheets one for each week of the month, with all the sales info for various shops. Each sheet will list the same shop about 10 times as they make numerous transactions so each one is listed. The list on each of the 4 sheets can be any length and will change week to week depending on how many sales there are.
What i want is to find shops that appear in more than one week and have then appear on a list on a 5th sheet, i.e. my good performers sheet!
I have a spreadsheet with 3 columns: Name, Number and percentage. I need a formula to return the name that has the percentage and the 2nd highest percentage. the spreadsheet has 5 rows, not including the columns labels.
I want to vlookup from sheet2 cell E2 to find all matches in sheet1 in coulmn G and add totals together in coulmn E. The match I am looking for is used in several rows of coulmn G on sheet1. I only want cell E2 on sheet2 to give me total amount from data in coulmn E of sheet1 when a match is found in coulmn G of sheet1.
The objective of the code is to determine if a value in Column A exists:
- If it does, then copy data from a different worksheet into the row of the worksheet where the value resides - if it doesnt, then go to the last used row in Column A and add then copy data from a different worksheet into the new row
The portion of the code im having trouble with involves the Finding of the value in Column A, and also the error handling when it doesnt find it.
The code below doesn't handle the error correctly.. for the data set im running the code on, it should find a value in Column A (which it does) but then it also runs the ErrHandler portion..which shouldnt happen.. it should only run the ErrHandler portion if it cant find the value in Column A (which therefore means a new record is required)
Sub UpdateRecords() Dim fitem As String Dim nmax As Integer Dim nRow As Integer Dim rFoundCell As Range
I am looking to create a code that searchs a column to see if there is word similar to the input (As in it's the same part name with a missing or extra letter or a space), and then return the first matched word.
I have many small spreadsheets of data organised into 4 columns and anything upto 250 rows. I want to be able to test if all the cells along each row have the same data in each of the 4 cells, so 4 occurences of the same thing. Each row of data will be different. (I'm not intertested in matching the data going down the column).
However, I won't know with each spreadsheet what is the exact data I will be looking for - if all 4 cells don't have the same data, that is fine as this will then require my manual attention which is the purpose of my project. I just want to avoid having to check through lots of rows of data where all the data does already match.
The data will usually be text but it can be IP addresses and numbers too. I need a formula or set of operators to use for is exercise.
I have two columns of card numbers (16 digits) in text format, as column A and column B. In column C, I'm trying to figure out how to compare column A and B for matches, and display the match in column C, if there is a hit.
I need to line XYZ to XYZ as well as the information attached to XY&Z i dont really know how else to explain it but i was hoping there was a macro or something out there that i could use to do this would make it a lot easier
I've been searching for a method to compare two large columns of numbers and remove replicates from the "main" column. Column A has all the numbers that are in column B and many more. I want to remove all the numbers from column A that are in column B. The result being two columns with no matching numbers. (or a third column that has only the numbers from 'A' that are not in 'B').
My search results on this forum have found results that compare rows for matches & can make deletions; and also one method that could mark all the entries that were duplicates in both columns, but nothing to remove them. The datasets I am using have over 400k entries in some columns, so manual removal of marked ones is not feasible. I need an automatic deletion method.
I want to compare two columns (from two different files, but copied into a new sheet) for duplicates or identical entries. But here's the trick, each entry contains atleast a number of digits. I'm not quite sure how to find items that may be 80% identical (in the right order, but might be messing a digit, or there is a dash or a 'o' instead of a '0'). I know how to do it in C++ or Java, but not quite sure how to do it in VBA/macro. Here's an example of what I meant. Let's say column one has the following:
0244-34 9393-O0 3932-44
and second column has 939300 493384 938923
If I was comparing second column to first column, it can pick up the 9393-O0 one because it's close enough to 939300.
