I am trying to create a formula that is able to calculate an end result based on the cell contents of 3 columns, the results are predefined in 3 other columns, here D, E & F
Column A Column B Column C Column D Column E Column F Column G (Results) Royal Mail 1 100 2.8 2.3 1.2 Royal Mail 2 100 2.9 2.4 1.3 Royal Mail 3 100 3.0 2.5 1.4 DPD 5 200 4.5 2.8 1.5 DPOST 1 100 1.2 3.2 1.7
I am trying to create a calculation that in Column G will work out, IF Column A=Royal Mail AND Column B=1 AND Column C<=100 THEN Answer is [@[Column F]], IF Column A=Royal Mail AND Column B=2 AND Column C<=100 THEN Answer is [@[Column F]], IF Column A=Royal Mail AND Column B=3 AND Column C<=100 THEN [@[Column F]], IF Column A=DPD AND Column B=5 AND Column C<=200 THEN [@[Column E]], IF Column A=DPOST AND Column B=1 AND Column C<=100 THEN [@[Column D]]
Here are an example of what I have tried, amongst many...
=IF(AND(AND([@[Default Post Postal Service]]="Royal Mail"),AND([@[Default Postal Format]]=1),AND([@Weight]<=100)),1,0) Everything is zero.
I am doing a "text to columns" in a VBA script and each time it runs I get a "Do you wnat to replace contents of the destination cells" prompt. I will always say yes to this prompt. Is there something I can put into the code to avoid this prompt all together, again the answer will always be yes to the prompt.
I have a formula that looks at a cell on a front sheet, and then returns the contents of that cell as the result if it meets the criteria. So for example this formula would be in Cell A1 on Sheet2 IF(SHEET1!A1,"New",Sheet1!A1,"-")
This formula is always in the same cell (different sheet) as the cell that it is looking at, down 1500 rows. Instead of having the formula named for each cell is there anyway to ask excel to 'look at this cell but on this other sheet'. e.g IF(Sheet1!"This Cell" etc). That way no matter what cell you put the formula in it is always referencing the correct cell for the formula?
I have a large sheet (approx 4k rows) and need to verify the contents of each cell by taking the name and searching for it in another workbook. I then need to copy over the cell contents found under certain columns in the secondary book and paste them into appropriate columns (row where search name was found).
Ex. I search for Apple and find 6 instances of Apple in the second book. I then take the contents of the cells found under columns Make, Model, Year (all from the row that showed the results as apple) and paste that into the same-named column in the first book.
I have been doing this manually but it takes too much time.
with different values and names.. but it's just to give you the idea of what kind of function it is. this one works perfectly, but i also needed another one in which the logical test range is no longer only one cell, but more, thus a selection. i wrote the same formula, but instead of the "A1" i wrote for example "A1:A20" which i thought it would work.. but it doesn't. even more surprising, when i open the insert function (the helping wizard that pops up when i click the "fx" button on the left of the function string) and i put in the logical test, at the bottom of the window it says the correct result (ie: yes). but on the actual worksheet, the cell displays the wrong result (no). i know there are no errors in the formula, so i really don't know how to solve the problem.
When I do a SEARCH operation to find the number 10 among hundreds of cells containing data, I'm often finding the way Excel highlights the cell that meets the search result is not easy enough to see.
Is there anyway I could setup Excel so that the resulting cell that meets the search result is highlighted in a RED border or RED Fill? I would like the cell that meets the search result to scream at me with a color highlight that is not easy to miss.
I have created a desk planning spreadsheet in excel. Each week a mailmerge sends out an email to everyone in the office asking them to confirm when they will need a desk in the next week.
As the normal employee doesnt get involved in desk planning I want them simply to state whether they will be in the building or not by entering "GH" (our building) in a cell under each day in the email they get sent.
When the reply comes in we select the cells from the email and then paste them into the desk planning spreadsheet. -----
WHAT I NEED TO DO: Select some cells (must be in the same row - that we have just pasted in). Press a button on the Worksheet labelled "Auto Assign Desk", which does this:- For each cell that contains "GH", replace with the right-most cell to the left of the selection that starts "GH_"... (this is the start of a unique desk reference (GH_1_1, GH_1_2,etc.) -----
This will assign the employee to the desk they were sat at last, when they are in the office next week.
So right now I have a spreadsheet that looks something like this:
A B C D
As you can see, the stock names are slightly different in columns A & C (CORP. vs CORP, CO vs CO., etc). I need a formula in column D that searches column A for the first word in column C, and then retrieves the contents of that cell. I want to do this because I will then use a vlookup in column E to get the ticker for the stock.
Right now I have: =IF(ISERROR(SEARCH(LEFT(C1,FIND(" ",C1)),A:A,1)),A:A,"")
This formula searches column A for EXXON, but does not return the contents of the cell. Instead, it returns the contents of a different cell in the column.
i have an excel file with hundreds of rows of product codes which i need to download images for. is there a way this can be done directly from excel? basically if cell A1 has product name and Cell B1 have product code, id like Cell C1 to generate a link that will use the contents of B1 as the basis of my google image search. can this be created using a macro?
I thought this was a pretty simple formula but I am having difficulty creating it. I am attaching a little test spreadsheet. Sheet 1 is where the data will be entered. The Reimbursed column has a drop down choice of yes or no. The next 2 columns are the cost of registration and the cost of accommodations. On sheet 2 is where I would like the formulas. So in cell A4 I would like a formula that says if B3 on sheet 1 is Yes populate this cell with the contents of Cell C3 only, B4 of sheet 2 would then be B3 if A3 on sheet 3 is Yes and so on with the Not reinbursed if sheet 1 the Reimbursed column is no.
I am new to VBA and am having difficulties in getting a find function to successfully locate search criteria within cell. When the search criteria matches exactly that of the cell contents then the code works; however should the search criteria only form part of the total cell contents (such as a seach for "the" in a cell containing "the cat sat on the mat") the code doesn't recognise it.
Essentially, I need the code to search a range for the required string and if found within a cell activate that cell and populate a combobox with the full cell contents of the activecell.offset(0,-2).
The relevant section of code attached below:
Dim role_count as range Dim role as string
If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("Role_Count"), Role) 0 Then Range("role_count").Select Selection.Find(What:=Role, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:= _ xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False _ , SearchFormat:=False).Activate
What i have so far is: -3 Sheets (Sheet1 - Search, Sheet2 - Data, Sheet3 - Result) -Sheet1 has a userform ready to link up - this opens up when workbook and worksheet is activated. -Sheet2 has some example data to search - the search is for column 1 (see attachment) -Sheet3 has a template ready for the data to be pasted to.
I would like the search result is column 1 to copy the data from columns 1 to 7 to sheet3.
I want the template/layout to remain after the pasting of results. (everything protected from editing, if possible).
Once finished (ie go back to sheet1, i want the data from sheet3 to be cleared.)
I am trying to get result in a column based on contents of previous 4 columns. For example as per table below, if there is value 1 in either of first 4 columns of same row, I want to display A in column 5. As first 4 columns in row 2 to 4 contains 1, result is A. If there is any 2 in first 4 columns, I want to display B. If there are both 1 and 2 in any first 4 columns, I want to display C. If there is 3 in any of first 4 columns, I want to display D. And if all 1, 2 and 3 are in any of first 4 columns, I want to display E.
I want to have a cell that looks at another cell based on a number that is in another cell. So imagine if you will: A1 contains the number 25. A2 contains the formula I can't work out. I want it to look at the row that is the number contained in cell A1, so in this case it would look at row 25.
Now I want to narrow it down further to a cell in that row but this will be a constant so lets say column F. So if A1=25 then A2 would display what ever is in F25. If cell A1 were 16 it would display the contents of F16 etc. The best I got was something like =IF(A1=>1,(F(A1))) but obviously that is wrong as it doesn't work.
Search a worksheet for a user defined text string, and have excell return the contents of a predetermined column in the same row in which the text string was found.
A prepopulated worksheet has the text "gold" entered in cell T278.
1. user searches for "yellow_metal" 2. Excell finds "yellow_metal" in row 278, say in cell A278. 3. Excell then goes to predetermined column (programed as part of macro or VB), say "T", and returns the text contents of the cell in that column, T278 in this example. 4. Excell returns "gold"
I am in the process of reformatting an excel workbook to act as a review tool for different factors in a process. Part of my redesign includes the use of coding that creates different cell colors based upon the cell contents. The new workbooks will be used to handle existing data for this year. I have developed a process macro to open an existing workbook and copy and transfer the original data worksheet into the newly formatted workbook. The data gets transferred to the new worksheet and the resulting workbook is renamed and saved, Heres'' the rub... the newly saved workbook is missing all of the coding for the worksheets... apparently this is a MS bug.
Has anyone figured a workaround for this. One thought I had is to open both( new and old )workbooks and rather than move/copy , i would transfer the data using cell references.
Been racking brain, searching through the forum here, and my Excel 2003 Bible all day trying to figure out this problem to no avail. I would like to clear the contents of any cell in a given range if the cell immediately to the right of is formatted as bold.
I am trying to find some VBA that will allow protected cells to be updated when a user enters or selects data in other cells.
Cell 'A1' starts out blank. Cell 'B1' has a drop down to select specific items. Cell 'C1' is the date of the order and is a locked cell. Cell 'D1' is the date of completion and is a locked cell. The worksheet is protected to prevent direct changes to cells C1 and D1.
If a user enters any information in A1, then C1 displays the current date. If a user selects 'Complete' from the drop-down list in B1, then D1 displays the current date. Both of these actions are independant of one another. This format is the same for every cell in the 4 columns indicated above. I thought I was able to do this in another spreadsheet I created a year or so ago but I have not been able to figure out what I did and I do not have the spreadsheet to look at.
I am working with a spreadsheet that has our user data; User(First) Name, User(Last) name, Computer Name, MAC address, Phone Number, Seating Position and Network Port Number.
I have let this get horribly out of sync, moved computers around, and moved them while the MAC address column was hidden, As a result, I have a bunch of users listed as being at the wrong computer. I have a second spreadsheet I generated that gives me the logged in user for about 2/3 of my computers, with the computer name(Just 2 columns, 'A' and 'B'. I would like to have Excel match the computer name and then overwrite the user name. For example, if the first computer in my correct user list is DELL-99945ty2, and the user name is "Jimbo Jones", I would like it to search the first Excel doc(The one with all of the user data), and replace the user name with "Jimbo Jones". Is this simple and straightforward?
In my main spreadsheet, the user name is in column B and the computer name is in column G, So I want to use the values from Column B in my second document to find its match in Column G of the first spreadsheet, and then replace the data in Column B with Column A in the first spreadsheet.
I am working on a sheet where I want the contents of cells D1:D10 appear if cell A1 has a text in it and the contents of cells D1:D10 disappear if cell A1 is blank. What is the right conditional formatting formula for this.
I wish to be able to lock an entire row after an entry has been made in a certain cell.
e.g. let's say i want to lock row 9 in its' entirety following entry of "Yes" in cell G9. If there is no entry in G9 the the entire row should be still unlocked. Likewise with any row with a corresponding entry in column G.
I have put together a spreadsheet to help with the creation of work orders. I have a summary page that the user can define which category the work order falls under along with this I have a couple of macros set up that will print a specific work order pertaining to the category they selected. I have run in to a few problems (mostly training users) that I would like to eliminate up front.
I am looking for a macro that I can use to look at the contents of a cell (contains a word that corresponds directly to the name of one of the sheets in the work book) and print the worksheet that has the same name as the contents in the referenced cell.
I have thousands of items each with a unique barcode(column A) and each is catorgorized either KEEP or DISCARD (column B). What I want to do is scan the barcode (column A), Vlookup and return KEEP or DISCARD (column B). Now based on what the vlookup returns can I have a sound file play for KEEP and a different one for DISCARD.
Macro Based on an input cell’s (e.g. B12) setting of “yes” or “no”, format several other cells (e.g. B20:G20, B23:F23, C26:J26) as follows: keep the existing yellow shading if input cell is “yes”, change to grey shading if input cell is “no”. I would like this macro to run automatically whenever the input cell value is changed.
I'm trying to set up a dependent cell (B) based on what is in the independent cell (A)
If A is blank, B should be blank
If A has any value other than X, B should display a set string Y
If A contains X, B should contain a drop down list with a range of choices.
I've tried setting it up as a dependent validation cell and I've tried using OFFSET, but the best I can do is to get three different drop down lists to populate cell B. One with only string Y, one with only a blank, and one with the range of choices. The problem is in the first two cases above, I want the cell to fill automatically with either blank or string Y -- I don't want them to just be drop down options, with the cell displaying the last value that was input.
