How To Create Search Macro Button That Allows To Search In Multiple Worksheets In One Workbook
Oct 11, 2011
Im am trying to create a search marco button that allows me to search in multiple worksheets in one work book. I came across this CODE the first part of it works. It pops open user input box and ask for the word that i would like to search but the this error message pops up Runtime error1004 Method 'range" of object'_Global'failed and i dont know what to do
Private Sub SearchButton_Click()
SearchString = InputBox("Enter Search String", "Search")
If SearchString = "" Then Exit Sub
For Each c In Range(myRange)
If InStr(LCase(CStr(c)), LCase(SearchString)) Then
I have a workbook with many many sheets in it. The first sheet contains a single column with about 10,000 different values. I'd like to use each of these as search criteria against ALL data in the other sheets (of which there are a good 50 or so). If matches are found (they don't have to be exact case), then I'd like two things to happen:
1. The rows containing the matched search criteria in the first sheet are highlighted.
2. In the cells adjacent to the search criteria in the first sheet, hyperlinks to the matched data are created and named after the sheet upon which this matched data appears.
I've attached a sample file to this post with ideal sample 'answers' to queries made of the first 2 terms.
I have attached a test workbook excel 2010 (ignore ref# errors, I've cut the workbook down for uploading purposes) What I would like to do is have a 'Button' on my 'information Sheet' which when clicked would clear certain cells. I have searched the forum but can't find a solution, everyone seems to want to delete rows or columns but I just want to clear certain cells. The workbook will have 11 sheets each named 'caravan 1' through to 'caravan 11' The uploaded test workbook only only has 3 sheets.
On 'caravan 1' (which is slightly different to the other 10) I want to clear the content of cells
On all other 'Caravan sheets' I want to clear the contents of cells
D4 & D5 E4, E5, E22, E23, E41 & E42
It would be icing on the cake if it could give a warning such as " are you sure you want to clear these cells" but that isn't really necessary. The worksheets will be password protected, but the cells mentioned above will not be. If it proves too difficult to clear all the cells on all the sheets with one click, then perhaps a simpler solution might be to have a button on each sheet instead
Attached is my excel worksheet I have created for a tracking/billing system for numerous schools. How I can create a search form?
For example, I want to find all of the kids in 5th grade that had to be referred throughout the whole document. Or I want to find a certain name to see if they have been paid but I do not know the location.
Using the search macro code below, could someone please help to add in more codes what I'm currently using, and also where to insert it. The Search function works well for what I need and it helps me to locate data. When using the search function somehow it search all sheets within the workbook but I only want it to search an array of sheets when using this macro that is needed to complete the task for what I'm after.
Macro Public Sub FindText() 'Run from standard module, like: Module1.
Dim ws As Worksheet, Found As Range, rngNm As String Dim myText As String, FirstAddress As String, thisLoc As String Dim AddressStr As String, foundNum As Integer
myText = InputBox("Enter the text that you want to search for:", "Start Search!")
I found some useful code for copying specific worksheets into a new workbook based on the sheet name, which I have not been able to alter to suit my needs.
I have a workbook that has a Master Sheet that contains a summary of each claim (Name, type of claim, dates, dollar amounts, etc.) and a sheet for each specific claim.
I know I can use the filter feature on the master sheet to view all of the physical damage claims (and one column has a hyperlink to the worksheet for that specific claim). But every month I have to create a report that shows each type of claim, dates, and so on.
I would like to create a macro that can copy the worksheets to a new workbook based on the type of claim it is. I'm thinking something like for each ws in wb if range ("F15") = 1 & .range ("B4") < 30 days from today copy that sheet into a new wb.
Below is a generic and far smaller version of my workbook. The name column contains my hyperlinks to the specific sheet. Each sheet is also named based on the text in the name column (so John Doe's sheet would be named 'John Doe') and so forth.
I have 6 worksheets with data. Column C of every worksheet is filled with unique Tracking Numbers.
I want to create a 7th worksheet with a search function. Users will be able to type in a Tracking Number (on cell A2), and information associated with that Tracking Number (from Columns A, D, E, F and G of worksheets 1-6) will show up beneath cell A2 on cells A4, B4, C4, D4, and E4.
I am trying to set up a worksheet which takes keywords from several cells (user populates these cells) and searches all worksheets for these keywords.
for example, i have C1:G1 set up as possible search string entry cells where the user types their text. I need a function which takes the data in whichever of these cells have been filled in (i.e. it may only be in 1 cell, 2 cells or all 5) and searches each worksheet for all cells containing ALL keywords. (as it finds each one, i will highlight the cell, but that part of the code is obviously very easy )
Currently i have this (note, i havent yet figured out how to but the k1 to k5 variables into the search string yet which is why they are set but not used): At the moment, its not ever looking past worksheet 1 - can anyone see why? and then how to i get it to look for all entered keywords?
I love Excel and love learning new things to do in it to create some amazing number-crunching techniques. I have created a workbook with multiple worksheets [one for every month in the year]. I searched this amazing forum and succesfully implemented the search box macro to find and copy the found data on a separate worksheet.
My question is that the macro I found in the this post Creating a Search Box in Excel only searches for the data in one worksheet. How do I tell it to search for the inputted data in all worksheets?
Here is the first part of the macro. I was trying to fiddle around with the strDataShtNm but to no avail.
Sub myFind() 'Standard module code, like: Module1. 'Find my data and list found rows in report! Dim rngData As Object Dim strDataShtNm$, strReportShtNm$, strMySearch$, strMyCell$ Dim lngLstDatCol&, lngLstDatRow&, lngReportLstRow&, lngMyFoundCnt&
On Error GoTo myEnd '*******************************************************************************
strDataShtNm = "Sheet2" 'This is the name of the sheet that has the data! strReportShtNm = "Sheet1" 'This is the name of the report to sheet!
I have a start page in the beginning of my excel workbook. This is where i want to assign a macro to a search button. I want the macro to search the entire workbook but only in a certain block on each worksheet.
I have a workbook with 6 worksheets in, 5 worksheets contain data whilst the 6th I will use as a search worksheet. The 5 data worksheets contain columns A to J which have text entries in.
What I would like to click a button on the search worksheet, lets call it worksheet 1, and for an inputbox to allow the user to enter a text search. The macro would then search for this text in columns A to J and all rows (or rows with data in) on the 5 data worksheets, and if found, copy the entire contents of those rows where the text is found and paste them into worksheet 1, the search sheet.
I have done a forum search and found a few examples of this type of search but not across multiple worksheets, also I found this code that does search across multiple sheets but does not copy and paste:
VB: Sub Find_Data() Dim datatoFind Dim sheetCount As Integer Dim counter As Integer
I would like to collect a specific information to the 1st page of the workbook.
It should do the following, when i enter a productcode to a cell in the 1st page(data collection), it instantly searches the other worksheets for a similar productcode, if it finds a match then it should bring 3 different cells on the same row to the 1st page.
I've been writing a little macro to prompt a user with a form which lets them select 2 reports to open and also lets them select a month. One report contains financial data for the month and the other report contains all data for the year. So each month someone has to copy data from report 1 into report 2.
I have so far been able to: -create form with error handling to open files - select values from a pivot table in report 1 - search pivot table 1 (single sheet) and copy the Name and Total $ fields
what i haven't been able to do: When i get the data from report 1 I switch to report 2. When i get to report to i need to search all the sheets in order to find a name with the original Name field from report 1 (I then have a HUGE case statement that will tell me if name = this and month = that then paste in cell $x$y). However, whenever i try to run my search across all sheets it will only find values on the sheet that is selected at the time.
I've attached my search code below, I would appreciate any help i can get as I've spent all day trying to resolve it with no luck
Function findinworkbook(TruncName) Dim ws As Worksheet
On Error Resume Next
For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Sheets ' Find Function Cells.Find(What:=TruncName, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _ LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _ MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate ActiveCell.ClearComments ActiveCell.AddComment ActiveCell.Comment.Text Text:="test" 'test to mark where the matched cells are On Error Goto 0
I am trying to create a uniform stock database for my company. Thus far, I have 2 worksheets. The first is a face sheet, for the user to interact with. This face sheet has a number of drop down menus on it allowing them to select "Type" and "Size" of the item they need. This information is then translated (by a hidden table) into an item code.
The second sheet contains a list of all the uniform items currently in stock. Each item has its individual code that correlates to the code the face sheet generates.
My question is regarding a search macro.
I want the user to be able to click a command button on the face sheet, labelled "search". This would then take the generated "Item Code" and search for it on the second worksheet. I am aware that it would be very easy for them to simply copy the code into "find" on the second sheet, however it needs to be as easy and quick to use as possible.
I have a workbook that contains 18 sheets of data. These worksheets are named according to their respective client names (AAA Shine, Fern Barn, Oracle, etc. for example). On each of these sheets, is a column (Column B), that has a salesperson's name in it (Fred, Joe, Ted, Anne... there are about 10 names total). On each sheet, there are corresponding values for the revenue from that account for each month of the year. Those values appear in Column L (Jan), M(Feb), N(Mar),... W(Dec).
What I would like to have is formula that will look at each sheet, find all the instances of Fred for January, sum them, and report them in a single cell on a different sheet I have called "Summary". The end result will be a total revenue from all customers, for each sales person, by month, in one summary sheet.
As in attached file, I have 5 tables: Table 1: matrix that contains Weight data in each cell Table 2: matrix that contains Code data in each cell Table 3: Relationship between Code and Level data Table 4: Table with relationship between Weight data, Code data and Level data Table 5: I want to populate each cell in Table 5 matrix from getting values from Table 4 by looking up the right value from Table 5 based on : 1) Weight data from corresponding cell in Table 1 2) Code data from corresponding cell in Table 2 3) Code and Level relationship.
for e.g. to get value for Table 5, Worksheet cell B140 ( intersection of A1-A1), 1) corresponding weight is 1.17 as in Table 1 (Weight data) (Worksheet cell B3) 2) corresponding Code is 6 as in Table 2 (Code data) (Worksheet cell B35) 3) Code 6 corresponds to Level 2 (as seen in Table 3)(Worksheet cell A74)
so, looking up the 3 values from Table 4 i.e. Level 2, Code 6, Weight 1.17, one gets cell AR98 with corresponding value. therefore, final value in Table 5, Worksheet cell B140 (intersection of A1-A1) will be equal to $4.00
I have been trying to solve this using Vlookup, Hlookup, Index/Match but am getting confused. Also, not too sure if this can be done in 1 step. New to these excel and these functions
I need one formula to copy and paste the checkcard data changing it from this "CHECKCARD XXXXXX5623" to "CHECKCARD 5623", but I need one formula to look for multiple known checkcard numbers. I will have more then one typically in the bank download so I need to search and copy at least two known numbers as shown below.
I am providing the formula that I am using right now, "=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("5623",B3)),RIGHT(B3,41),"")" but it only works for one checkcard number? Also I don't really need to capture the DEBIT or CREDIT that will always be at the end, it would be redundant. If it's easier to write the formula including that data that is no problem. What I want to copy and move into an adjacent cell is in red.
Here is the source data: Row 2 - SONIC DRIVE IN#1531 AUSTIN TXDEBIT FOR CHECKCARD XXXXXX5623 DEBIT Row 3 - JASON'S DELI # 125 Q64 AUSTIN TXDEBIT FOR CHECKCARD XXXXXX9718 DEBIT
Every new file I create is named with a sequential reference based on some criteria:
So, in my worksheet I have several columns with package names: LABK, LAVO, LACR… and on the rows I have the file names.
I have this UserForm I created Search.JPG
Basically (despite I imagine it’s not that simple), when I type the package name and the place as follows, for example
Package = LABK Place = SAO
After clicking on “Generate” button, it should look for all file names containing LABK and SAO, verify what the last sequential number is (highest/MAX) and generate a new one in the text box below the button.So, if the last file name is LABK_(SAO005), it’ll generate a new one as LABK_(SAO006).
I've had a look at various coding to create a macro to search excel.
The issue I have is several work sheets within the work book but they're always inactive unless opened. From the 1st work sheet I've got menu buttons that open a specific worksheet, then there's a button to click to take user back to 1st worksheet and close the 1 they were looking at and making it inactive.
Following code is what I use to open and close sheets:
The above works fine for opening and closing.
But if I use Excel's standard CTRL + F search facility and change options to search workbook, it doesn't work because every other sheet other than 1st sheet is inactive.
I have a simple spread sheet that I made that takes the first letter of a name entered into cell (A1), combines it with the last name entered into cell (B1), and inputs that combined information into cell (E1).
It works how I need it to for the most part but... I need Excel to look at a completely separate workbook (containing four sheets), and search the entire workbook for exact matches of the combined information in (E1). If it finds a match elsewhere in that workbook I want it to add a 1 to the end of the combined name. I basically want it to increment the number until it does not find one that already exists in the other workbook.
Example: Cell (A1 contains Bob), Cell (B1 contains Smith). Currently Cell (E1 would display bsmith) - I need for Excel to search the other workbook, and if it finds a bsmith anywhere in that workbook add a 1 to the end making it (bsmith1). If it finds (bsmith1) increment it to (bsmith2) and keep going up by one number until it does not find any other matches. The other workbook is located on a mappedshared network drive.
In users column A has email contacts from people that accessed a recoding on line. I need to be able to cross reference with another sheet called data where I will have their full name.
Basically I would like a macro that will check column A in users sheet and check in data the name column . If it finds last name or partial name in the mail it will highlight it in the users sheet and in the name column in data
User sheet Column A is raw 1 is heading username
data sheet column B is raw 1 Last Name
That way I am able to quickly identify a group of people if they did not watch the recording as user gives me indication on what they did.
i am trying to open a get a code working that will enable me to enter a file name in a cell of the current workbook open, then search through a root directory and subfolders, find the file and open it. the code below i giving me grief. i am using 2007 excel.
I would like to perform a search on only the worksheets listed in a worksheet titled table of contents. I would like to use multiple criteria for this search and send only the unique results to a worksheet titled results. Each worksheet listed in the table of contents has a cell address for each heading that I would like to extract data from the same column. The attached workbook example shows the data that I would like to collect when I search for cells that begin with "AB" and cells that begin with "CD". I collected this data by copy and pasting all the data from each worksheet into the results page and then applying filters and advanced filter to remove duplicates. This method does not work well for the original workbook as the data is quite extensive.
How to create a macro to search a value and delete the row but I'm having trouble trying to get this to search multiple values. Keep in mind I'm really new at attempting to create a macro so this may look terrible ;-)
I have a list of 20 numbers (changes from time to time) and I need to filter any row containing any one of these numbers out of my results each day. I am currently able to filter a single group of numbers but get an end error every time I attempt to string a group of numbers.
This is what I have so far and is an example. We'll use three numbers as an example.
"12345","12346","12347" are the numbers that we'll use for the example that I need to filter. The code that I have is:
