## How To Find Any Number Greater Then (x) And Replace With A Letter

## VBA - Replace Cell Value With Sheet Name For Sheets Beginning With Certain Letter

Jan 10, 2014

I have a workbook with a bunch of sheets and I am interested in the sheets that begin with the letter "P". Each of these sheets is named "P###" with #s ranging from 0-9 and not consecutively.

## Find And Replace A Specific Letter/number Combination

Jul 9, 2008

I have a column of references I wish to standardize. Contained within a general text description there is also an order-specific reference number, which is not relevant for my purposes. I wish to find all of these numbers and replace them with nothing (i.e. retain the rest of the description).

The reference numbers are always in the format "P#####/##". Unfortunately these references are in the middle of the text field, not at the start or end, so I can't use a LEFT or RIGHT formula to delete them.

Once these reference numbers have been deleted I will then be able to filter for unique records only. When I do this at the moment the filtering has no effect due to these specific reference numbers.

## Return Column Letter Based On The Letter In A Cell.

Dec 31, 2009

For the below formula is it possible to replace the B's (column location) with a cell Say Z146 which contains the letter B (or a number if thats easier and someone can tell me the numbers for each column).

When the formula is dragged into the next cell (down) it takes its column reference from Z147 and then my life becomes so much easier.

=IF(INDEX('Overs-Unders'!B:B,MATCH(\$C145,'Overs-Unders'!\$A:\$A,0))"",INDEX('Overs-Unders'!B:B,MATCH(\$C145,'Overs-Unders'!\$A:\$A,0)),"")

## Excel 2003 :: Find And Replace Missing The Ability To Replace Values?

Feb 5, 2009

This problem has come up fairly frequently lately, and I'm not sure how to fix it, or if this is by design...but in Excel 2003 I can't seem to do a "Find and Replace" based on the value of a cell. I can do a find, based on cell value, but the moment I change to the replace tab, the "values" and "comments" are missing from the "look in" dropdown.

I've only noticed this when I'm trying to replace on a filtered list, so I'm not sure if that is part of the issue.

Perhaps an alternative way of arriving at the same goal. Basically I have a worksheet with a number of filtered columns. They are filtered just right, using custom filtering, and so I do not want to undo the filters. In some columns I have formulas that are returning #VALUE! errors. I'd like to replace all of these cells with NA.

## Find And Replace To Not Replace Characters Found As Wildcards?

Jul 2, 2013

I recently became owner of a spreadsheet with some issues, and I am trying to make it useful. Each row has a URL of a blog post, and I want to extract the date from it (which is present in each URL) while getting rid of the rest of the URL. I was able to get rid of everything up to the year (which comes first), but then the URL continues, for example, 2013/05/16/the-rest-of-the-url/ and I would like to just have 2013/05/16 remain.

I am trying to use find and replace with the find box reading 2013/??/??/*/ and replacing it with 2013/??/?? which effectively erases everything else in the url, but leaves ?? instead of the numbers. Is there any way to have it so that it keeps whatever was in the original box?

## Highest Letter In A Row

Jan 7, 2010

I'm trying to list the latest revision of a drawing in an issue sheet spreadsheet. What I need is to be able to enter a formula that will find the highest alphanumerical value in the columns beyond. Alphabetic characters take precedence over numerical - i.e., drawing issue numbers usually follow a 00, 01, 02, 03, then switch to A, B, C, D,... order.

To try and illustrate what I mean a little better, I have the following table, with dates in DD/MM format. Sorry it's not laid out too well, my HTML isn't great:

Drawing title latest revision 01/01 02/01 03/01 04/01 05/01 06/01
example010001AB
example02000102
example0300

I want the cells in the "latest revision" column to report the highest value. So, I want it to say this:

Drawing title latest revision 01/01 02/01 03/01 04/01 05/01 06/01
example01B0001AB
example0202000102
example030000

I won't have control over the numbers and letters reached (i.e., the drawing revision could get up to Z or something - or the number revision reach 15 before switching to alphabetic revisions) so I'd rather avoid having to set up a crazy IF function with "00", "01", "02", "03", "04", etc etc. But -

rng.Value = Left\$(rng.Value, Len(rng.Value) - 1)
