I am in the process of designing an inventory like spreadsheet with prices. If possible, I'm trying to find a well to look at a column for every instance an item shows up (lets call them apples) & then find the LAST instance of apples showing up to pull the pricing of that row only. Is this possible?
In col A, I have the dates. I would like to create a formula in all the other columns in row 1 that will look fror the first instance of a value in each column and return the date that that threshold value is reached.
The value I am looking for is 3, but the values in the columns might look like 0 1 1 1 3 2 1 3 4 2 0 etc. I want to return the date of the FIRST instance of 3. How would I do this?
I'd basically like a formula that finds a number (eg 220) within either the first 10 rows (or with row 5 if this isn't possible) and returns the column Letter as the result. The number will only appear once and only in one column. If it matters the columns go all the way to EC.
I have a list of product numbers in col. A. In col. O I have a list of file names that contain the product numbers as well as additional characters. I need a formula that will search col O for the first instance of the text in cell A2 and return that value.
The next formula will return all instances that contain the text found in A2.
I don't have to keep using the ridiculous Substitute() work-around when I need to grab cell text after the nth instance of a character. In doing data cleanup I'm constantly having to grab text between, say, the 4th space character and the 6th one. Since Search() doesn't have an instance parameter, I end up having to use the 'Substitute trick', since it's the only string function that does have one.
See below for a typical example of the convoluted formula I need, and another example of it if Search only had 'instance' available. Simplifies the formula quite a bit.
*Typical real example, here to find the word between the 4th and 5th spaces in A1:
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.
I have a spreadsheet which I am trying to put in a macro to add a new page (below the current page in the same worksheet) so that users who are unfamilair with Excel can simply do this.
I have got the macro to copy the cells I want and can get it to paste but the issue is I don't always want it to paste in the same place. The current document is 1 page long but it may need to be up to 10 pages long. I am trying to get it to find the last instance of the word "COMMENTS" and then paste the copied info 3 rows below that.
I have a worksheet with a column that lists the city where an item is located. If the city is say Austin I need to find the last cell in the range that has Austin in it. I can find lots of examples where you can find all instances within the range and to find the last cell in the range that has any data in but nothing that tells me how to find the last cell in the range that has a specific value.
I'd like to search for text and get the column character where the cell with the found text. The combination the two 'demands'/formulae into one are giving me problems. And the fact that the column character can exist out of two characters I cannot solve.
I can get the column number with HLookup right? and it gives me the column number, not the character. I can solve this partially (and ugly even more) with =Char(((Hlookup etc)+64 (letter before A))).
I want to find a content of ActiveCell only in column "C", beginning from cell C4.What must be in Look in, and Look at?How to accomplish to match whole number,ex. "1" in cell with "1",no to find "1" in "123"
This function searches in whole sheet,but i need only in C column! Cells.Find(What:=ActiveCell, After:=[c4], LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False _ , SearchFormat:=False).Activate
Set rFound = Sheets("ProductCount").Rows(14). Find(What:=sProduct, LookIn:=xlValues, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext)
ProdRow = rFound.Column
where sProduct contains values such as SW , CO. Now, when I use rFound to query SW, it finde me this first occuring SW. I have this inside a for loop. When it goes and queries again, it should get me the next occuring SW, not the first SW that it searched for me.
I would like to be able to add vb code to my developing macro that searches within 1 column for the last instance of a particular word, then inserts a blank row under that word. All the data is sorted, so the words will be used multiple times, but I need the row to go under the last instance of each word in the column.
I have been working on a Software Audit list that has been created by someone else. He has created an Application Colum and under that is a drop down box. I want to be able to search by typing in the first letter, i.e. 'S' but currently I just have to scroll down.
Do I need to create and Active X Combo Box to do this or is there another way? Also, is it possible to search on the first two letters, i.e. 'se'?
I am building a Workbook which takes data from SheetA and inserts it into SheetB. Part of the data is only entered when a positive value exists.
I then do an export from SheetB.
The problem is that I need to get the column number and pass it to the cell reference based on the field name in row 1.
Dim sFindstring As String Dim rFindcell As range Dim iR As Integer Dim iC As Integer
sFindString = " Find this string in the cell" 'Using cells find the findstring Set rFindCell = Cells.Find(What:=sFindString, After:=[A1], LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious)
'OK so look here iR = 3 'I am trying to pick up the column number iC = rFindCell.Column
rFindCell throws an object or with block variable not set error. Is there some property that I need to set.
'Daily Entry Sheet'!$H$8:$H$138 = Work Order Number
Following is what I presently have coded.
The following Works but is not completely as I need.
=IF(OR($F8=0,$F8="",ISNA(G8),$H7="Work Order #"),"",IF(ISERROR(INDEX($H7:H$8,MATCH($F8,Prop.,0))),"",INDEX($H7:H$8,MATCH($F8,Prop.,0))))
This works fine in that the match finds the first instance of the work order #. The problem is there may be a later worker order # for the same property which supersedes the old work order. I need to find that last work order number for property # 919 for example, not the first instance, as the index/match returns.
I looked for a function similar to the sumif or countif
But I don't need to add the work order numbers.
Countif can give me how many instances property # 919 is used,
But I haven't figured out how to use that to It would be ok if the function would return the largest number like the MAX function, best would be to select based upon the latest date.
I am looking to modify my combobox from a userform to Filter the list based on the first entry on what the user will add.
I have a code that will search for all entries in my "Control" sheet and passed this on to my combobox:
I have, within a module, the following function code that the user find the entry by adding the first 3 letters of the search they need:
I would like to know what to change in the function to filter the list, once the user adds a first letter and then press the dropdown from the combobox, to filter the list based on all entries from the first letter to only show entries with that letter.
If A is entered, then, show only the entries strating with the starting letter A, but at the same time if the user adds more letter to filter to the first then second letter:
If AB is inserted, then, show entries with AB only.
Where do I add this code also, is this another function or this could be inserted within my function?
I have an formula if statement that returns "deletethisrow" if the test is true.
For every occurence of "deletethisrow" I want to delete the row. The number instances will be variable each time I run the file. So maybe it will find that string, maybe it will find 10 instances. I want to do some kind of loop that won't error out when it cannot find "deletethisrow", but will delete the rows for each instance where it does find this string.
I know it was verbose, but if I just do a loop for a fixed number of loops it will error out if it runs out of rows to delete.
Ok so I am trying to streamline the Shirt ordering process at my work. I have made a table with Employee names as Column A, then Row 1 is shirt sizes from small to XXXL. The Cell values are going to be the colors people want. I want to total the number of each size/color combination. But someone may want more than one of the same color. For instance you would enter "BK, BK" if you wanted 2 black shirts of that size. This is where the issue with COUNTIF comes in. If a cell has the same value twice, it only counts it as one because counts the cells with an instance of a value, not the actual count of instances. Is there a way to make COUNTIF or a better function for this?
I'm trying to write a macro where I match specific letters from one cell, with a column in another sheet so I can copy/paste adjacent cells. As an example I have a list of part numbers in column A of my Document1:
ex. C12932-1 C13226-2
I want to be able to find the corresponding part number in column A in Document2: ex. C-12932 C-13226
However the proplem is clearly that the part numbers are written differently. So I need to just search for "12932" or "13226"
