# Randomly Sort Set Of Numbers

May 8, 2012
I have a 1x20 array with the numbers 1 thru 20 inside. I want a piece of vba code to randomly sort them. I will do this in a loop to create different "starting arrays" for an optimization code. I just need to be able to randomize the beginning. How is this done? I cant have duplicates.

I have three columns of data that I want to randomly sort by row. It's important that each of the three adjacent cells in each row move together, i.e.

Before assortment:

A1 B1 C1

A2 B2 C2

A3 B3 C3

After random assortment:

A2 B2 C2

A1 B1 C1

A3 B3 C3

I have a list in rows where I have a ranking formula =COUNT($G$5:$G$81)-(RANK(G5,$G$5:$G$81)+ COUNTIF($G$5:G5,G5)-1)+1 When I sort the rank, ascending. All of the unique numbers sort ascending, but the non-unique numbers sort descending

ex) 1.751

2.52

3.753

418

417

416

with this problem (which I've been trying for weeks to solve).

I have a column ("C") of 640 numbers, which I need to randomly sort and place into the adjoining (ten thousand) columns. I then need to correlate each of these 10k columns with column "B".

The problem I have with the attached (which works for small numbers), is that when I increase the table size to 640 rows and anything more than a dozen or so columns, it takes forever to calculate and Excel often crashes.

How can you sort item numbers, targeting only the numbers in the mock up file?

Example:

item number: GW14SO0000003

item company: GW

item location: 14SO

item counter: 0000003

How can I only sort the item by the last 7 digits "0000003"

I am looking for a VBA to sort rows which include actual numbers and text representing decomposed CTQs (or procedures in IT development)

Code:

Col A Col B

1Billing Accuracy

2Billing Time

3Credit Check Accuracy

4Credit Check Time

2.1Bill preparation

[Code]....

This is the order in which the data is copied and saved from worksheets in which they are developed. Note that 3 rows (8.1.2.1 through 8.1.2.3) are below 8.1.3 (because the three come from Worksheet 8.1.2 which came after worksheet 8.1). The first four rows came from a Top Level Worksheet. I would like to see them intermixed but in proper order.

I have 3 columns; A:Name, B:Debit & C:Credit. There are multiple row (approx 15,000) where I have a customer name and then a debit at one date, and a credit at another date. There is a debit to match every credit.

I would like to some how sort the sheet so that I can make sure each credit matched the debit. That way I can find what debit's don't match the credits. This is an example of how this looks. http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/n...kejoe/sort.jpg. I would like to sort it like the example on the far right (see attached picture)

I have a column of data that contains alphanumeric ID codes, some of which contain no alpha characters (i.e., Excel treats them as numbers). When I do a data sort, Excel puts all the purely numeric codes first, then the alphanumeric codes. I want to sort the numbers among the alpha codes.

Example Excel sort order:

06090

10400

28198

34078

43321

0BKV9

1C7K4

2P776

3BTW3

4U744

Desired sort order:

06090

0BKV9

10400

1C7K4

28198

2P776

34078

3BTW3

43321

4U744

I know there's a way to do this, but I've spent half an hour looking and can't find the answer. And no, manually editing each numeric entry with an apostrophe is not an option.

I am trying to sort a column of numbers, and some of the numbers have hyphens in them.

Excel will first sort the non-hyphenated numbers then it will sort the numbers with hyphens.

I would like to be able to sort it all together starting from the lowest first number to the last highest number. I have included an example.

1.3.1

etc... The list goes on with 1000s rows.

And in column B I have the names of the files

So I would like to find a solution to sort things in the good order.

Im totally new to excel and have some data i need to sort. how to sort numbers into ascending order across a row. ie, I have 34 2 45 79 102 63 etc, and I need them to start low and order to high. i have over 1200 rows, so it would be good to do the whole sheet at the same time.

I was able to create a macro to sort two columns in ascending order and then calculating their difference in the 3rd column via a macro, which work only when all the numbers were matching. if there's a mismatch then i had to separate them manually.

I am pretty much new to Macros and was thinking how do i make a macro which would compare the two columns and move the ones to the bottom which do not match?

I've got data in a table that has am induvidual "job number" assigned to each row, but this job number could have a variation such as 1000A 1000B 1000C but they may not necessarily be one after the other in the table (other job numbers may appear in between) so i need a to macro to remove all job numbers lets say that start with 1000 and paste them and the end of the table. so i end up with consecutive numbers. Can this be done? I've played around with the find funciton to loop through the column and find all relating job numbers then cut the entire row but cant quite seem to get it to work

In a spreadsheet I have a text column with entries such as:

2012

10 Times

10.5 Times

101 Times

25 Times

A Pure Text Entry

When I sort by this column I expect to get:

10 Times

10.5 Times

101 Times

2012

25 Times

A Pure Text Entry

Instead I get the 1st order. Why? I've selected 'Sort numbers stored as text' separately so it shouldn't be treating 2012 as a number. Besides I've checked & the cell formatting is Text.

I'm looking to sort Library of Congress call numbers in Excel. The format of

the cdall numbers is:

Letters Number Period Letter Number

and after that, perhaps more periods, letters and numbers!

The problem seems to be that if I have (sorted):

C3.A40

C25.C25

C124.D45

attempting to sort them as text would list

C124.D45

C25.C25

C3.A40

Which is incorrect. I've been looking at the cell formatting features, and

they seem to only allow me to change how the data is displayed, not how Excel

thinks about the type of data.

I would Like to do another decending sort but only the values in Col C that corespond to a particular name in Col A. Can I imbed a index match function combination within the large function to do this?
