Move The Text

Oct 2, 2008

I inherited a spreadsheet from someone who knows nothing of excel, its massive and I'm trying to organize it into an actual spreadsheet instead of some weird note taking program.

Is there an easy way to take a couple of Cells worth of text and move into one cell combined.


This is
just one

Above would be one example, there are 3 cells used to input one sentence... I want to move those to one cell to read

This is just one example

There are also cells with Data Separated by a "/" is there a way to separate that quickly without manually typing or reformatting my wrists are starting to hurt

Move Cells Containing Text

Apr 9, 2014

I have an Excel sheet with several columns of data, each containing the link to a website. To the far right of this data, I have a column called "Official Source" in which I'd like to copy over any website links containing the phrase "" (if there are any, if not than leave the cell blank).

For example, if I have the following data in my sheet:

Column A Column B Column C
[URL].... [URL]....

Than I would want the last source to move to column D -

Column A Column B Column C Column D
[URL].... [URL]....

how to do this?

Macro To Move Text

Oct 14, 2009

I am trying to create a macro to do the following (Microsoft Excel 2002 SP3):

1 - Select the text from the active/selected cell (i.e. B1)
2 - Cut the text from B1
3 - Move to the cell directly above the active/selected cell (i.e. A1)
4 - Add a space to the end of whatever text is in A1
5 - Paste the contents that were cut from B1 after the text and space in A1
6 - Delete the row where the text was cut from (i.e. entire row B)

I have never written code for macro's before, only done recording, but just can't seem to get this sequence to work .

Move Text When There Is A Second Line

Jan 10, 2009


Removed screen shots - Please DO NOT use actual personal information, sample data only! - Moderator

Some of the people on this list have a second name entry on the line below their first name entry. ALL of the people on the list have an Address2 on the line below their Address1.

How would I move the second name entry into the cell next to the first name entry, and then concatenate them, and then also move the Address2 entry into the cell next to Address1 (but not concatenate these)?

Move Text From Left To Right Of Number?

Apr 4, 2014

In a large database with a large portion of cells that contains a flag to the left of a number "<LD 2.0" what would be the quickest way to move the flag to the left of the number so that it reads "2.0 <LD". This seems like it should be simple to do. I would prefer not to have to use a second cell and formula to do the modification if that makes sense. I'd rather do a "Find and Replace" if possible.

Break Up And Move Text To Next Cell

Apr 25, 2009

There are basically four fields of text (date, trans. #, merchant, $ amount) all in one cell that I would like to have in 4 separate columns without having to cut-paste, cut-paste, cut-paste. Is it possible for me to break this information up quickly into 4 separtate columns? I have about 400 lines of text like this and would like to find a faster way to do it.

Move Text From End Of String To Beginning

Jun 28, 2013

I have a column which contains a series of alphanumeric characters some start with the alpha characters and others end with them.

As an example ABS1234, 1234ABS, 12k34AB needs to be ABS1234, ABS1234, AB12k34. The number of alpha characters at the end will be a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 3. Is there some way that I can move the Alpha characters, at the end, so that they are always at the beginning of the string?

Search For The Text And Move Everything Under That Column

Jan 16, 2007

I have some macros that will look for a certain item and then move it somewhere else on the spreadsheet. However, I can't seem to get the code right to skip over the section if the text is not found. I assume it would be easiest to do it with error handling, but the attempts I've made haven't worked.

the macro will search for the text "Name" and move everything under that column elsewhere; then it will do the same for "Date." But currently, if "Name" is not found anywhere on the spreadheet, it will cause an error and ask to end or debug.

Move Rows To Worksheets Based On Cell Text In Row

Mar 16, 2008

I download our monthly bank transactions (.csv). I have a workbook with sheets named for each creditor or expense.

I would like move each row, based on the specific word in a cell row, to the specific worksheet.

Here are some typical transactions in the Description column:

Some are specific:
“Moved to the Vonage worksheet.”

Others are not so obvious:
“Moved to the Eat Out worksheet.”

“Moved to the ASPCAPS worksheet.”

“Moved to the Grocery worksheet.”

I was able to find the following while during a Search:

Move Cells Containing Specific Word In Column To New Sheet

The question was answered, in addition to Dave Hawley, by Bill Rockenbach who inserted the following code - “Sub FindWord()”

Option Explicit
Sub FindWord()
Dim Sentences
Dim Word As String
Dim i As Long
Dim iWordPos As Integer
Dim lRow As Long
Dim sWord As String

If this is a possibility for what I'm looking for, I’m not sure how to implement it into my situation.

Move Rows Based On Specific Text Being In Column

Mar 21, 2008

I am trying to have rows moved from (Schedule) to (Complete) in the attached workbook. The criteria to have the row moved would be the user-selected "Status" list changing to "COMPLETE" in Column G.

I would like to have the row cut and deleted from Sheet4 (Schedule) once "COMPLETE" is selected from the list in Column G with rows below moving up. The row would then be inserted into Sheet2 (Complete) at the top of the list (Row 7) and rows would move down below the new entry. I would also like to have the formatting remain uniform (every other row fill)

Move Data From One Column To Another Based On Column Headers And Row Text

Feb 7, 2014

I am in need of restructuring a spreadsheet of addresses for mailing purposes. (I tried to find something similar answered previously, but nothing seemed to work for me.)

I have attached a small example spreadsheet below, but our spreadsheets can be hundreds or thousands of rows in length.

I need a macro that will look for the "PO Box" addresses under the column headers named "ADDRESS2" and "ADDRESS3".

The PO Box addresses will need to be moved under the column header "ADDRESS1" within the same row.

It will need to overwrite the text that is already under "ADDRESS1" and delete the text from the "ADDRESS2" and "ADDRESS3" columns - UNLESS the text in 'ADDRESS2" is a PO Box AND "ADDRESS1" begins with "c/o".

If the data in "ADDRESS2" or "ADDRESS3" is anything other than a PO Box it will remain the same. As will "ADDRESS 1".

Basically if there is a PO Box it needs to be in the column named "ADDRESS1" and overwrite anything else that was there. The exception will be for PO Boxes that are in c/o someone else, the PO Box will then need to be listed in the column directly after the column that has c/o.

If the c/o exception will be too difficult the code could just highlight those scenarios and we could fix them manually. We usually do not have a lot of them, but enough that we need to be mindful of them.

The different scenarios are listed in my sample spreadsheet.Also, the code will have to use the column header names in row 1 because those headers are not always in the same column.

Move Certain Text In Column C To Column E

Feb 16, 2010

I'd like a macro that finds all cells in column C with the text "Apple" and moves all those cells values (text) to column E.

Case InSensItive.

One Caveat though, the search must continue and not stop searching until it is equal to the bottom-most row of data in column F.

I don't want this macro to search all 1 Million + Rows.

Excel Text Search Through Different Types Of Text And Action Based On Text

Oct 14, 2008

1. Search an excel sheet "column" for a particular type of text and insert values based on that text (if found) in another column.

e.g I have column A1 to A10 with different types of text. I would like to search for the keyword "Risk is high" OR "Risk=High" for each cell in the column and insert a "1" if found beside it's corresponding "B" column. If not found, I would like to insert a "0".

So, if the text "Risk is high" OR "Risk=High" was only found in A6, I would like B6 to be "1". Rest of the values in the B column would be "0's", since the text was not found in any of the other cells.

Text File Import With Text To Columns Splitting Same Text Differently

Nov 21, 2007

I have a macro which imports data from a mainframe dump text file and performs 'Text to Columns' on the imported data so that formula in the spreadsheet can act on the data. The code works perfectly well when I use it, but if a different user logs on and performs exactly the same mainframe dump and import macro the Text to Columns action splits the raw data in a different way and the result is that the split renders the formulae useless.

I've experimented a little and for some reason it appears that the 'Field Info' parameters which are produced when the Text to Columns function is recorded in a macro differ between users even though the raw data is exactly the same.

FieldInfo:= _
Array(Array(0, 1), Array(18, 1), Array(35, 1), Array(56, 1), Array(70, 1), Array(88, 1), _
Array(102, 1))

VBA To Move A Row Up When Value Is Not Zero

May 31, 2007

I have 8 rows (B345:B352) that have a formula similar to this:=IF(Site1!B53>0,CONCATENATE(Site1!$B$53," Scansys 942 @ ","$",Site1!D53,".00"),""). By the way, can the formula be shortened? I tried formatting the merged cell but nothing changes.
When Site1!B53=0, then there's nothing in the cell.That's how I want it. But say, row 3, Site3!$B$53 >0 how do I programatically move (copy/paste?) row 3 to row 1 (since row 1 and row 2 are blank)? In other words, Since rows 1 & 2 is blank, I don't want the two empty rows there, so I would like to move row 3 up to row1.

Move Row Up Or Down

Mar 10, 2009

I have a workbook with several sheets each containing different numbers of rows. These rows contain data from clients (codes etc applying to motors). The rows have been randomly populated and I am having to move rows from somewhere in the sheet up or down so the codes are grouped according to which motor they apply to.

What I want to do is select a row and be able to run a macro that will move it where I want. The destination can be up or down and any number of rows away. Does anyone have any ideas how to do this? I was thinking that if I selected the row I wanted to move and the one I wanted to move it to then run the macro it could be moved. Its not to replace the destination row, but be inserted alongside it.

Move Selection One To The Right?

For a specific equation to work I need to know the distance whenever the acceleration is maximum.

The last part is a piece of cake, using MAX I get the desired results.

However, returning the distance is difficult.

What I'd like to do is return the value of the cell to the right of the maximum acceleration.



I got the address of MAX, but that's about as far as I get.

Move To Another Cell
