## Column Number Of Last Column In A Row Where Cell Contents Greater Than 0

Jun 24, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with rows of data. I need a formula that will return the column number of the last column in a row where there is a value >0.

Let's say that cells A1:F1 contain values. Some have values of 0 while others have values >0. I need a formula in cell G1 that will tell me the column number of the last value >0.

A B C D E F
0 2 5 0 6 0

So the formula in G1 would return a value of 5, which corresponds to column E.

## Convert Number In TextBox To True Number

i have this function that poulates data from a userform into a sheet.

For lLoop = 1 To MAWBNoVar
With Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)
.Offset(1, 0) = Controls("txtMAWB" & lLoop)

## Macro To Find End Of Column And Paste Contents In Column 1

Mar 11, 2009

I have the file here i work with, basically the first column is a legend and the column to the right of it is a pointer column to help me find out where a legend is located in another file. So i was wondering if a macro could be made to basically find where the "legend column" A, C, E ect ends ( every other column is a legend column , one next to it is a pointer column ). and then combine the ends all of the columns contents and put them into 1 column.

In the file with this question i have showed you what i start off with, i highlighed in yellow where each column legend ends, ( normally these are not highlighted and i find them manually ). In the 2nd tab i show what the end result should be. All the columns are now consolidated into 1 column. 1 after the other.

## Auto Fill Column B Based Contents Of Column A

Apr 19, 2007

I have a list that is streets and addresses. All contained in column A. Cell A1 is the street name and then Column A3 is the street number. This repeats down column A for almost 1000 street names. I need to fill column B3 with the street name, as well as B4, B5, B6, etc until the street name changes. I was trying to do this with an if..then but couldn't get it to work. I also tried to work on a do.. loop looking for the change from a string to number. But my programming is a little rusty. If anyone can help I was be forever grateful. I mean the alternative is to sit here and copy and paste all day.

## Adding Number To Cell Reference Not To Contents

May 28, 2006

I want to create a formula that will refer to the cell I want by adding a number to the cell reference, not to the contents of the cell. For example, lets say that the cell C11 holds a value of 22. I want to add 4 to C11 to get my formula to reference cell C15, I don't want it to add 4 to the contents of C11 which is 22 and would give me a result of 26. I have a large spreadsheet and I can't just fill down the way I have it now and I don't want to have to retype the formula every time.

## If Column F Has “Out” And Column K Has Any Contents Copy The Row

Dec 9, 2009

I’d like to check each row in Column F and Column K of Sheet Check. If Column F has the contents “Out” and Column K has any contents inside its cell, I’d like to copy that row and insert it into Sheet Alert. As a result the same row will exist in Sheet Check and Sheet Alert. This code will cut the row out of Sheet Check and paste the row into Sheet Alert if the contents “Out” is found in Column F.

## Convert To Number..

Nov 11, 2008

I'm just trying to get a total of columns E, F and G, and place those totals in row 5. The problem is that somehow the numbers in column G were stored as text, so the SUM formula is coming up "0". How would I format these cells, in a macro, (columns E, F and G, just in case the data in the other two columns were stored as text), as a number so that I can total them.

I've tried selecting the column, selecting format cells and choosing number, but that doesn't work. I can manually select the cells, click the little exclamation point, and then tell it to convert to number. This works, but when I tried to record it to add it to the macro, it didn't record anything but the selection of the cells.

## VBA To Convert To Number

Jul 28, 2009

I have a string of imported data which comes into an existing spreadsheet. It cannot be changed prior to importing as the data is provided by an external vendor.

When the data is imported into my spreadsheet the Error Checking tag comes on, after I select the cells where certain numeric data has been entered, stating that this is a range of Numbers Stored as Text. If I click on the Error Checking tag and select the Convert to Number option and then enter my VLOOKUP function I get the desired answer. If I do not convert the text to numbers then my VLOOKUP function does not work at all. The cell just displays the function text itself instead of the desired answer.

Here is what I am requesting:

Assistance with writing the VBA code to accomplish the manual task of converting the text to numbers. I have tried to format using the Ribbon without success.
