Looking To Find 1 Of 2 Words In A Cell In Column B And Return Word Found In The Same

May 27, 2014

Looking to find 1 of 2 words in a cell in column B and return the word found in the same row in column E. This seemed easy but I am not having any luck.

the cells in column B have several words in them but I am looking for 2 specific words "PLAT" and "ORIG". If the word is not in the cell, it should show a blank cell in column E in the same row, otherwise one of the 2 words should be in that row in column E. A VBA loop would be ideal but a formula that can do it might work as well.

How To Search For A Word In A Column And Have Entire Row Opaque Once Word Is Found

Sep 3, 2009

I need my macros to search for the word "Cancel" or "Cancelled" in columns "T" and "U". Once found, I need the macros to make that entire row an opaque shading.

There will be other wording in these cells that contain "Cancel" or "Cancelled". Is it possible for the macros to search in the sentence and find the words "Cancel" or "Cancelled"

I started on the code below but am stuck.

Col D
Col E
Col F

Code
Description
Cost

I am looking for an Excel Formula that will look up Australia & Mobile and then return the highest value of the range of cells it finds that meets that criteria and enters that value in the Rate column next to mobile (F3).

Then I just want a variant of the same formula that will look up Australia but exclude Mobile and then return the highest value of the range of cells it finds that meets that criteria and enters that value in the Rate column next to Not mobile (F4).

Find Words Ending In A Certain Word - Macro

Jun 5, 2007

I have a sheet called "Words Ending In"

In ColA From A 3 downwards I have a large list of keyword phrases.

I am looking for a macro where I click on a assigned macro button and a pop up box appears saying
" Find words Ending With"
In the space provided I insert a word.

So, for example I insert the word "rent".

The macro then looks at all the data in ColA (From A 3 downwards) and searches for all keyword phrases ending with the word "rent".

If it could return All Phrases in ColC (From C3 downwards).

If it can't find any, then if a pop up box can appear saying something like "No Data Found"

That's it really.
If it could have a pop up box at the end saying
"Total Phrases Scanned: 1234"
" Total Phrases Found Ending With "In"
"Time Elapsed (sec.): 12.12353

Find Text/Value & Use Found Cell, Row, Column In Macro Code

May 10, 2008

I am trying to clean up and simplify my macros by compartmentalizing frequently repeated commands. I like to search for text in column headings and define the cell containing it as a range that I can later use .column or .row commands on, so my macros are a bit more flexible. The code I currently use for this is

Dim XColumn As Range ‘the cell containing the text “X”
Cells.Select
Selection.Find(What:="X", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
Set XColumn = ActiveCell

I would like to be able to create a Macro (possibly name FindSetCell()) that will accept arguments and achieve the results of the above code in other macros
I think the command might look something like FindSetCell(“text to be searched for”,”name of newly Defined Range”) But I have not figured out how to code it

Copy Row From One Sheet And Paste To Another If A Key Word Is Found In 1 Column?

Apr 15, 2014

I have 10 worksheets in my workbook. The two that I'm concerned with in this post are "Main" and "Completed".
If Column AA in "Main" contains the word "Complete" (which is from a drop down list) I want to copy the entire row from "Main" and paste in the "Complete" sheet without over-writting previous pasted rows.

Back in sheet "Main" I want the data in that row to be cleared with the exception of Column A as it contains a formula for sorting blanks. If I delete that row it will mess up my links on other sheets.

Replace Like Words In Column To Make Word Cloud?

Jun 21, 2013

how to accomplish more work quickly is proving difficult. I am making a word cloud of survey responses for my boss and he doesn't like to see similar words in the cloud (like Ease and Easy or even Fast and Quick). I have several hundred of these responses that are open ended answers that say one or many of these terms. Any way I can separate all the words and have them in one neat column? If I can get to that point, replacing those words will be simple enough.

Find Cell Value In Column & Return Corresponding Value

Mar 22, 2008

I am drawing a complete blank of this one. I know it can be done but I can't seem to remember how I did this in the past.

I have a sheet that has cells A1 at MB, A2 as ML A3 as MD

Then in cells B1 I have MB,TL then in B2 I have ML and then B3 is Blank this time.

Then in cells C1 I have Jim, C2 has Jack, and C3 has Fred.

What I want to do is have a formula that is in cell D1 that looks at the value in A1 and finds that value in Column B and if it is found return the value in the same row in Column C. In the example it would show Jim since MB is found in cell B1.

Lookup Column Values In Another & Return Value If Match Found

May 28, 2008

I need to create a macro that will loop through a list of names on Sheet 1 / Column A, and if that name is listed on Sheet 2 / Column A, then it will set Sheet 1 Column B (for that one name) to "1".

The problem I've run in to is that both the lists change in length each time I have to run this (so no set range).

I've been able to get this to work with two ( nested) loops, where the first loop goes through the Sheet 1 list and the nested Loop looks for the name on Sheet2, but it is extremely slow.

Is there any simple VBA code or formula that I'm missing that could do this? I've tried to do something with the " Find" VBA command, but I can't see how it would apply to this if the list changes in size.

The formula is =INDEX($E$1024:$E$1026,MATCH(FALSE,ISERROR(FIND($E$1024:$E$1026,E1010)),0))

I understand index and match functions, but I'm confused regarding the use of FALSE as the lookup value and the iserror(find( usage.

Find Corresponding Cells - Column Contains Certain Words

May 30, 2012

Very simple program I think, can either be solved by build-in functions or macro. So situation is I have a table, where the D column, contains certain words.

Now I have table where the M1:M10 column contains the same words and the corresponding column (N) contains the value.

So for example , cell D5= "A" and I find that cell M6 is also "A" so I then go at cell N6 which has the value "3.3". So now I want I5 to have the value 3.3 in it.

In Summary, I want the value of the n column copied into column I. Now I have plenty of rows in the D column so I prefer a fast way.
