# Functions Left, Right, Mid And Trim: Early Binding And Late Binding

Nov 30, 2006

I have some code that run on Excel 2003, and fail on Excel 2000. It happens on functions Left, Right, Mid and Trim. I've found that I must use in "Late Bindings".
If exist any convertion for above functions?

## Syntax For Late Binding To MSFORMS.DataObject

Mar 10, 2006

I cannot figure out the syntax for the life of me.

This should work...

Dim DatObj as Object
Set DatObj = CreateObject("MSFORMS.DataObject")

...but it does not.

Also, if it is not possible to late bind to this class,

## Binding Combo Box To Cell

Aug 15, 2006

I have an incredibly simple question, for anyone who knows Excel well. I pre-apologize for the gaps in my knowledge, as I'm mostly self-taught.

I have an example spreadsheet I found on a thread here.

It has cells A1 and A2 bound to combo boxes.

I want to set up a worksheet pretty much exactly like this.

I know how to do a combo box as an external item on the page, but I want each cell in a certain column on each row to be a combo box.

## Excel 2002 :: Binding Fill Color To A Cell

Jan 26, 2012

I have a workbook in which there is a sheet containing a table.

Excel 2002ABC123Specific Gravity6 Volt ValuesSOC40.0000.000Dead
51.1345.97010%61.1485.99020%71.1626.02030%81.1766.06040%91.1906.10050%101.1976.12055%
111.2046.14060%121.2116.16065%131.2186.18070%141.2256.20075%151.2336.23080%161.2416.26085%
171.2496.31290%181.2576.32095%191.2656.350100%SOC Chart

From another sheet I query this table using the LOOKUP function to obtain values from column C such as 25% 60% and so on. A typical query formula looks like this:

=LOOKUP(B2,'SOC Chart'!B4:'SOC Chart'!C19)

It would be nice if the fill color came along with the value.

## Late Coming And Early Going Calculation?

Feb 7, 2014

I want to late coming and early going of employees. eg. office incoming time is 9 am and 5 mints late coming is allowed 9.05am . and outgoing time is 6pm i am not able to calculate late coming if outgoing is 5.30pm and if put formula =IF(E3>=6,0,6-E3) not working properly.

## Formula For Calculating Late Hours And Early Goings?

Mar 7, 2014

Tried with index & Match formula but it throws errors in few cases becoz Cell value are either stored in general or H:mm formats

For ex.

Cell value "05:07" has a custom format applied (hh:mm), and in the formula bar it is displayed as "05:07:00" which is not what we want. When I change the format to 'General' Excel converts the 'time' to decimal, eg "0.213194444444444".

When I manually enter 05:07 the problem is nearly resolved as it changes to 'general' without turning to decimal, but displays as 05:07:00. The formula converts it to decimal where it throws error.

## String Functions Errors While Trying To Late Bind

Dec 7, 2006

I’m developing an application that will be distributed amongst several clients all running different versions of Excel.

I am trying to employ Late Binding, but am runing into an issue with some string functions (like Mid, Right and UCase) and am getting a ‘Can’t find project or library’ error.

These functions work as expected in a blank project.

## Trim Left Of Cell Only

Sep 17, 2008

In cell B8 - I have a cell with the following info:
Mr A. Jones
4 spaces, ' Mr A.' , 4 spaces and 'Jones'

In order to Trim Only on the spaces to the left of the first letter in the cell I am using the following formula:

=MID(B8,FIND(LEFT(TRIM(B8)),B8),LEN(B8))
Can anyone tell me if there is an easier ay to do this ( I'm sure there must be )

## Trim Left Of Space

May 15, 2007

Sub GetThatstring()
Dim strMonth As String
Dim iYear As Integer
Dim StrMnthYear As String

strMonth = Trim(Left( Range("A1"), _
InStr(1, Range("A1"), " ", vbTextCompare)))
MsgBox strMonth

iYear = Mid(Range("A1"), _
InStr(1, Range("A1"), " ", vbTextCompare) + 1, 4)
MsgBox iYear

StrMnthYear = Trim(Left(Range("A1"), _
InStr(1, Range("A1"), " ", vbTextCompare) + 4))
MsgBox StrMnthYear
End Sub

I have a column of cells likes:
5/5058 Jack Daniels
5/29AA Crown Royal

I want to delete everything to the left of the first space.
So it will look like:
Jack Daniels
Crown Royal

It has to be vba though. I have done alot of trim in just formulas but this is first time in VBA. The above code is one I found by searching but not sure what to do to modify it.
This will be for range AM2:AM2000

## Trim Left And Minus A Character

Jun 29, 2007

Sub TrimSlashesToRight()
Dim cell As Range
For Each cell In Range("AN2:AN2000")
cell = Left(cell, InStr(cell, "//") -1)
Next
End Sub

I cannot get it to run this, it always crashes on

cell = Left(cell, InStr(cell, "//") -1)

It will work fine like:

cell = Left(cell, InStr(cell, "//") + 0)

but then it leaves the first / in place, i want it to start deleteing before both //.

## Find/Left Functions: Grab Everything Left Of The Last Occurrence Of "." In A String

Nov 19, 2009

I want to grab everything left of the last occurrence of "." in a string, and in the next cell everything right of the last occurrence of "."

so say the string is 111.111.1.222
column 1
111.111.1

column 2
222

my current code (which works, but its messy) for the first cell is

## LEFT And SUMPRODUCT Functions Combined?

Feb 26, 2014

I have two columns of data that I need to use SUMPRODUCT on. However, in one of the columns, there might be text after the number. The text can be several different characters. I only want to use the numbers, never the text. Also, there are usually blank cells within Column B and at the bottoms of both columns because this formula is going into a template for future worksheets that all have differing numbers of rows.

Example:

14T
16

40

20
150

97L
67

13
12

For the above example, I want the result to be 9879 (14*16 + 40*0 + 20*150 + 97*67 + 13*12 + 0*0 + 0*0 = 9879).

I've tried using the LEFT function to only get the numbers before any text, but I can't make it work with the blank cells at the bottoms of the columns.

## Left And Mid Functions Inside Subtotal

May 5, 2009

Have been messing around a bit with this.

So this is the formula without LEFT
=SUBTOTAL(9,C17:C22)

i want this
=SUBTOTAL(9,LEFT(C17:C22,1))

## Vlookup & Left Functions With Formatting

Jul 18, 2007

I am trying to obtain price of an item using vlookup() function on the identifier “0003128” (7 digits) stored with “custom” format “0000000” in one worksheet. However in other worksheet, the identifier is stored as “000312” (6 digits) with “text” format without the last digit ‘8’. I tried using the left(A,6) function on “0003128” but instead of returning “000312” it returns “3128” and I’m unable to use the vlookup() function.

## Combine Iserror Vlookup And Left Functions

Oct 2, 2008

XL 2003

I want to combine these three functions

=VLOOKUP(e4,AGTNAME!\$A\$1:\$E\$3086,5,0)
=LEFT(E4,FIND("/",E4)-1)
and iserror

## Insert Multiple Characters Into String With LEFT RIGHT Functions?

Apr 29, 2014

I've got a long list of account numbers of varying length and ultimately need to add a dash and a dot into these numbers. Here's an example

12345678 to> 1-2345.678
123456789 to> 12-3456.789
1234567890 to> 123-4567.890

The standard format is always 3 numbers after the . and 4 numbers between the - and .

I can get to this by doing a series of functions starting with this:

=LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-3)&"."&RIGHT(A1,3) to get 12345.678 or 123456.789

copy/pasting that value into another field and then doing this

=LEFT(E1,LEN(E1)-8)&"-"&RIGHT(E1,8) to get the results above

I can't quite figure out the format to combine the multiple steps/functions into one so that I'm not copy/pasting values and re-doing the function.

## Mixing VLOOKUP And LEFT Functions (bring Up The Model Type Of A Product Based On Its Material Code)

Aug 3, 2009

I need a formula that will bring up the Model type of a product based on its Material code. All the models I need to generate have a "root" number in them (the first 6 digits define model type). This is what I need to fill out:

## Trim Macro: Trim All Of The Data From Rows 2:30 Removing Any Trailing Spaces After The Last Word In Each Cell

Apr 25, 2007

I have come up with this to Trim all of the data from rows 2:30 removing any trailing spaces after the last word in each cell. The macro takes a couple of minutes to run have I got something wrong that is making it run slowly or does the Trim process just take longer?

Sub TRIM_RANGE()
Dim myRange As Range
Dim myRow As Range
Sheets("CAMPAIGNS_2007").Select
Set myRange = Range("2:30")
If myRange Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
myRange.Replace What:=Chr(160), Replacement:=Chr(32), _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False
For Each myRow In myRange.Columns
If Application. CountA(myRow) > 0 Then
myRow.TextToColumns Destination:=myRow(1), _
DataType:=xlFixedWidth, FieldInfo:=Array(0, 1)
End If
Next myRow
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

## Loop Stops Early

Jan 22, 2007

verify that this syntax is correct. I just started working with Charts in VBA and it is getting very frustrating. This code should be able to run up to 140 cycles but it quits making charts at 7. Something I'm missing? If it is of any relevance sometimes it errors out at the HasTitle and Legend properties.

Dim myChtObj As ChartObject
Dim rngChtData As Range
Dim rngChtXVal As Range
Dim rng As Range
X = 0
y = 2
z = 1

Do Until y = 8

Set rngChtData = ActiveSheet.Range("A2:A352").Offset(0, z)

## Prompt Early Log Out Time Using Msgbox

Jan 16, 2009

i have an excel file which tracks break time. The program works by logging in the start time of break and the log out time of the break of every employee. What I would like to do is to have a prompt if the user immediately logs out at an early time. Say if the user's start time break is 1:00 PM, if he happens to log out immediately, he should be given a prompt that he can only log out after 25 of his total 30 minute breaktime. Thus he can only log out at 1:26 PM.

My code below currently logs in and logs out the time but without the prompt i would like to have.

## Subtracting Early Dates To Get A Number Of Days

Sep 19, 2007

I wish to subtract the date 11/18/1877 from 11/16/1968 to get a result showing the number of intervening days but excel does not want to do it.

When I take 11/18/1900 from 11/18/1968 and format the result to get a number with no decimals the result is 24835 as it should be; but it does not seem to work for dates earlier than 1/1/1900.

## Count Occurrences Where Deliveries Were Early Or On Time As Compared To Scheduled

Aug 17, 2014

I have a set of data I need to count.

The data consists of 2 columns essentially, Scheduled Delivery Date and Actual Delivery Date.

If the Delivery was made on time or early, I want to count it. I will do a similar count for Late as well.

Additionally, the user can enter the Scheduled date range they want to count early/on time deliveries from. There all also blanks in the Actual Delivery date column where deliveries have not been made (no actual).

Cells O3:O38 contain the Actual dates
Cells N3:38 contain the Scheduled dates
Cell B3 contains the begin date to start the range.
Cell B4 contains the end date of the range.

I have tried using COUNTIFS and am having trouble getting the formula to work.

I tried:

=COUNTIFS(O3:O38,O3:38<=N3:38,N3:N38 ,>=\$B\$3,N3;N38<=\$B\$4)

I know this will not work but I hope it shows the logic I want.Count range O3:O38 where values in O3:O38 are less than or equal to the corresponding cell value in N3:N38, for a range of N3:N38 that is greater than or equal to the date in B3 and less than or equal to the date in B4.

## Work Marked Late -Either VBA Or Worsheet Function

Dec 30, 2006

I have a very large spreadsheet with the following columns: WO# (number field); Start date (date format MM/DD/YYYY); Frequency (text); and craft (number). I am trying to have code that checks the frequency and if is "Monthly" or "Weekly" it just goes on to the next row; if it is "Annual", it adds 163 to the start date (start date needs to changed to a numeric field); if it is "Semi-annual", it adds 82 to the start date; if it is "Quarterly", it adds 45 to the start date; and so on, there about 20m different frequencies. After it adds the above value to the start date, I need to check if that number is less than today's date (the day I run the code). If it is, it needs to flagged as "LATE" and the whole row of info copied to another worksheet with LATE as the title and all the column headings and info copied to the worksheet. I hope this makes sense to someone because I am a beginner in Excel and even less informed when it comes to VBA. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The way the process must work is that I need to check the frequency and if it is "Weekly" or "Monthly" , it is ignored and goes on to the next row. All other frequencies are cut in half, i.e., "Annual" is 183 days, "Semi-annual is 92 days", "Quarterly" is 45 days, "2-Year" is 365 days, and so on. This number needs to added to the scheduled start date (now formatted as a number, not a date, and checked to see if it is smaller than today's date (also a number). If it is, it is reported on the second worksheet (titled Late).

## Show Late & On Time Based On Dates

Dec 14, 2007

I'm working with data as displayed below. My objective is to create a table by Model with summed quantitiies in two columns representing On-Time and Late. On-Time is achieved when Date Shipped is on or before the Promised Date. I have included the required format to be achieved in the second example. I'm willing to work with macros or VBA for the solution. I just need guidance to learn how to accomplish this task.

CREATE TABLES LIKE BELOW?
----B---- -----C------ --D-- ----E-----
6 Promised Date Shipped Inspection
7 Date Mod #
8 11/30/07 11/01/07 780 15216

## Days Late Formula (result To Equal Either Zero Or Blank)

Oct 1, 2008

I have a formula in Excel2003 that is working fine except for when D12 is blank. When D12 is blank I want the result to equal either zero or blank.

## Calculating Number Late Last Week From Multiple Dates / Date Sets

Jul 2, 2014

I am putting together a simple table to display current week's data vs previous weeks. The current week's data is drawn from a status chart which changes frequently. The constant change is fine for 'Current' as I only want the current data displayed.

The problem I am having is calculating the number of late jobs that existed during the previous week.

The status log has a due date which is compared to the current date to determine 'on time' status for the current week.
Due dates are reissued regularly so I can't use

=COUNTIF(RANGE,WEEKNUM(NOW()-1)) to return data about last week from my status chart.

I have available a 'Movement Log' (in the workbook but a separate worksheet) which tracks the changes in the due date field, but I'm not sure how to integrate that data to calculate the # of jobs that were running late from the last week.

My thought is that I need to perform a count of the # of late based on a comparison of 'due date' to 'date of the last day of last week' with a way to insert the "old due date" from the movement log to replace what is shown in the status log if necessary.
