Look Through A Sheet, Find A Text Reference, Then Bring Up Something In A Cell
Jan 13, 2008
I'm in the leadup to my A2 ICT controlled conditions piece where i have to make an Excel system. My chosen subject for this is to use the school house points system. I'm going to make a system where the results of house matches are inputted and points are awarded accordingly.
I just have a couple of queries after looking at my initial designs.
1. Is it possible to get excel to look through a sheet, find a text reference, then bring up something in a cell located in the same row? For example, for it to locate one of the House team names, then go along the row and find the ammount of house points they have in order to make a total for them. Is this also possible over a number of sheets? (In order to keep a running total on a separate sheet).
E.G. House, Games Played, Wins, Losses, Draws, House Points
2. For the house cross country event they use a different system which differs from everything i have designed. What i basically need to do is be able to use a drop down against each finishing position where you can select one of the four house teams, then it takes the points won for that finishing position and puts them into a table.
I am trying to take the tables you will see in the dummy page on the second and third sheet and have them output onto the first sheet based on the parameters of the drop down menus. Is there a way to have a button on the first page that controls a macro to do this?
Sub Macro2() ' ' Macro2 Macro ' Macro recorded 11/28/2012 by Doug Garn ' ' Dim Rng As Range Set Rng = Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.Offset(0, 3)) Rng.Select
What it does, I hilite (put focus on 1 cell) a cell and it copies that cell and 3 more to the left, switches to 2nd xls file, pastes that, puts the cell focus on next line, then goes back to the first sheet and I just have it select a random cell(s) so it does a Ctrl-F properly.
Problem is the 3 ways I have above to bring up the find box aren't working for me. It won't find anything and I don't understand why. And I hope I explained this correctly.
I have 2 spreadsheets. One is a promotion calendar that lists the dates that promotions on a certain product runs. The other is a shipment grid of shipments of that product to the customer.
I want VLookup to find the customer and the dates and then bring me back an asterisk in a separate column to show me that that certain week that product was delivered was a promotion week. The problem I have is using Vlookup to lookup 2 things at once (and if they match to the promotion calendar) and return me an asterisk.
I work as a data administrator in a high school in England. I've only been doing the job for about 8 months but a lot of the processes we go through could be better automated via the use of macros in Excel and Word.
Basically we have school grade reports that come from our MIS database that are stored as a Word template, which are then exported into Word as an .xml file. However, they don't come with the photographs of the students on the reports, so we have a Word List Report with every student photo (split into year groups) and run the following macro, which allows you to pick a folder where the reports are stored and match the photo to the report via the school admission number. It is then inserted into the report using a Word bookmark to place it in the top left corner.
VB: Sub InsertPhoto() Dim myFile, myFileNewName As String Dim PathToUse As String [code]....
This works fine but I would like to be able to automatically format the photos so that they have 'In Front Of Text' wrapping, which we need to keep the templates from messing up. It would also save me accessing nearly 1000 school reports and manually editing each photo.
I have a workbook with several sheets of varying length (amount of columns). The length of each sheet changes every week. I want particular data from the sheets to come together on one sheet in as organized a fashion as is possible. I'm currently losing my mind copying and pasting every week when I need to update the thing.
In Sheet2 I have a list of cell addresses showing values such as D5, D32, D59, D221, D869 stored in cells AB7:AB16. In Sheet1 the "D" column holds dates. I want to return the corresponding date for each D# cell into Sheet2 in column AC7:AC16. I'm unaware of the proper syntax for this. I though it would look something like:
I am writing a function that opens up an external excel document, identifies a string in a certain range and then i also want it to return a cell reference for that string including the number of rows beneath the cell that the string was found in.
I'm having some difficulties in defining my formula. I'm pretty sure that this should be possible. I have a table containing values and dates. For each change in dates, I should summarize every value for that date. I cannot use the autosummarize function, because I do not want the sum to be beneath the values, rather in a column to the right of the values.
I have created a formula which checks for a change in date: =IF(C15=C16;0;1) where the C column contains the dates. Basically I say that the Index column should contain a 0 if the date is the same as previously registered, 1 if it is a new date.
The index column is used in some conditional formatting rules, so I would like to keep it anyway.
I am trying to look up a numerical value in Sheet 1 Cell:F7 and find that value in Sheet 2 Column B, then offset 29 columns in the row where the value was found. The number will not have any duplicates within Sheet 2.
I am having trouble getting my IF statement to test if the cell contains the text "sale" return "X" if not "Y". I need it to search through the text string in that cell and find a certain word, and if it finds that word, retrn a value. I am really having difficulty with is what symbol or function do I use for the logical test? (i.e. =, <>, MATCH, INDEX?)
I have an IF statment that looks at a sheet but I would like it to look at certain sheets I.E. sheet 2,4,5,6.
Sub SelectPrintArea2() For Each ws In Worksheets If Range("Sheet4Q5").Value > 0 Then Range("A1:AA47").Select ws.PageSetup.PrintArea = "$A$1:$AA$47" ElseIf Range("C5").Value > 0 Then Range("A1:M47").Select ws.PageSetup.PrintArea = "$A$1:$M$47" End If Next ws End Sub
But it will only look at the sheet it is in and not any of the other sheets. I've tried to tell it which sheets but I just get errors.
Sheet1 is a list of names, then a few columns of numbers. Sheet2 contains calculations based of the numbers in sheet1.
Each sheet from 2 on is names after the names in sheet1 column A... A large cell at the top of each sheet contains the formula to display the sheet name: =MID(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))+1,255)
So what I want to do now is... in cell, look for the cell in sheet1, and display the value in the cell offset by X so i can bring the numbers from sheet1 over.
In plain english the cell would say like... "look in sheet1 for "Name" then display the cell next to it"
I know to look in the next sheet its "=Base!B2" if i wanted b2 on sheet base. I know to use "=OFFSET(Base!B2, , 1, , )" too look at B2 and go right 1 column. But the issue is i dont want Base!B2.. i want whatever cell in Base column A that has the text that A1 has.
I know vlookup can find specific text in a column when the formula resides on the same sheet. But for my actual application (a 15 page price list) I was attempting to use vlookup on sheet 2 and have it find specific text on sheet 1. Note that sheet 1 will be having additional rows added through out the table over time, so vlookup cannot use a specific cell location.
My attached example can simulate the problem by sorting the table by name (A-Z).
I have a pivot table that changes in size from day to day. The last row of the table starts in Column A with text "Grand Total". I need a formula that searches and identifies that text, then copies that row, and pastes the row to another sheet. note: the sheet the pivot table is on is titled Price Detail, the sheet I need to paste the row onto is titled sheet 2.
I am building a Workbook which takes data from SheetA and inserts it into SheetB. Part of the data is only entered when a positive value exists.
I then do an export from SheetB.
The problem is that I need to get the column number and pass it to the cell reference based on the field name in row 1.
Dim sFindstring As String Dim rFindcell As range Dim iR As Integer Dim iC As Integer
sFindString = " Find this string in the cell" 'Using cells find the findstring Set rFindCell = Cells.Find(What:=sFindString, After:=[A1], LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious)
'OK so look here iR = 3 'I am trying to pick up the column number iC = rFindCell.Column
rFindCell throws an object or with block variable not set error. Is there some property that I need to set.
I have a worksheet with several columns and 1,000's of rows. I have code that makes all "good cells" grey (color index 15) and all "bad cells" red (color index 3).
I would like to do 2 things...
1. If ANY cell is RED, cut the WHOLE ROW and "insert cut cells" below the header row (even if ALL other cells are grey), then repeat the process up the whole worksheet until ANY row with a red cell is at the top.
2. Create a new worksheet named "Trouble Cells", copy the header row along with any rows with red cells.
I would like to keep the formatting the same (for example, the title row is always yellow and is "28" high and all other rows are a height of "12").
I would also like to keep the column width of each column in the new worksheet as well.
I'd like to be able to refer to a cell or local scope defined name within my sheet that references another sheet, or accomplish the same functionality in some way.
For example, if I have a sheet MyInformation and then another sheet MyPrintedInformation, where the printed information sheet shows MyInformation in a more printer-friendly format, I might have this in MyPrintedInformation:
a cell or defined name that says (this doesn't work, but just as an example): let's call the named variable TheSheetToPrint ='MyInformation'. Then from within MyPrintedInformation all of my references look like this
The next cells on bottom line (B2:B10) contains the results of the this test.
On another Sheet i want to analyze those results, thus I need the results from Sheet1 be copeid to sheet2. I want just to indicate the test name (A1 location) and the rest of the cells will be copeid automatically(relative reference, relatively to A1).
