Multi Keyword Phrase Finding Macro

Jun 8, 2007

I have a large keyword list in a sheet called "AllKWs" In ColA from A3 downwards).

What I'd like to be able to do is this, which I'm sure will be complicated, but I will explain.

Say keyword phrase sheet has 25,000 rows of data (could be more/could be less).
I click an assigned macro button.
A pop up box appears.
I type in a word or words I'd like some info on, so for example I type in a word or words like "car rent"

It then returns for me on a new sheet called "Multi Keywords" a lot of data on this sheet, which would hopefully be as follows:

All Row 1 will contain Column headings
All row 2 will contain Total Counts (I'll explain in a minute this row)

So, all data to be returned from Row 3 downwards.
OK, as to the data to be returned.
All returned data In all Columns to show data in descending order by No of occurrances/appearances

Col A (From A 3 downwards) = The actual number of 2 word appearances (In this example that contain the words "car rent"

In Col B = All 2 word Phrases Containing ("In this example "Car Rent")
(As a note, In this example, ColA (CellA3) could only show the number"1" and ColB (B3)could only show the phrase "Car Rent") once. (As there isn't no other possible combination).

In Col C =The actual number of 3 word appearances listed in descending order That
contain the word "Car rent"

In Col D =All 3 word Phrases Containing "Car Rent"

In Col E =The actual number of 4 word appearances containing "Car Rent" listed in descending order

In Col F =All 4 word Phrases Containing "Car Rent"

In Col G =The actual number of 5 word appearances listed in descending order

Actually if anyone can crack this I really do take my hat of to them.
OK,A few more points,

Cells B2,D2,F2,H2,J2,L2,N2,P2,R2, All contain the word "Total:" and if the macro can fill in the number as appropriate.

So for example Cell L2 (For 7 word phrases) would say something like "Total:42" (If in Col L From L3 downwards the macro found 42 7 word phrases that contained the words "Car rent"

Ok, Cells A2,C2,E2,G2,I2,K2,M2,O2,Q2 All these cells will contain the word "Total". So these cells would list the combined total number of occurrances of all the phrases.
So for example cell K2 might say "Occur:324" as the total number of occurances of 7 word phrases that had the words "Car rent"in.

OK. as an example, I will post a code that Jindon wrote for me sometime ago. I'm posting this now, as it is very similar in what I would like this macro to be able to do, and might help as I'm sure this 1 will be complicated. This 1 looks for a phrase, returns by No of occurrances etc, but for all the combinations (Word lengths) within the Keyword phrase list, rather than what I'm asking for now, which splits them into Number of words columns.

Here it is anyway:

Sub NicheKeywordFinder()
Dim a, dic As Object, X, myTxt As String, b(), c(), n As Long, i As Long, e, s, myTotal As Long
myTxt = InputBox("HuaHinCarRental - Niche Keyword Finder") 'change to suit
If Len(myTxt) = 0 Then Exit Sub
Set dic = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
dic.CompareMode = vbTextCompare
ReDim b(1 To Rows.Count, 1 To 1): ReDim c(1 To Rows.Count, 1 To 3)
With Sheets("All KWs") 'change to suit
a = .Range("a1", .Range("a" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)).Value
End With

Search For Keyword With And Condition And Return To Different Sheet Within Excel

Jul 22, 2014

I've got an Excel document with over 323 entries and I need to search the data to find where ever a certain keyword is mentioned and copy the entire row into a separate sheet within the same workbook. However, I have a list of around 323 keywords and there is AND condition as doing this using Ctrl+F would take some time.

The data is in Sheet "Training Dataset" and the particular column that needs to be searched is Column "A" . "Training Dataset" is the sheet where I would like the found results to be copied to in the column B and C. The list of Keywords that need to be searched for are located in Sheet "Keywords" , starting from Cell C and D.

Phrase Search Macro

Jan 26, 2014

I would like to write a macro which checks if phrase from column B (lets say 13845) can be found in column A cells.

For example DDH113845G389.

I think that it should be some kind of loop but I'm afraid I can't handle it.

Keyword Search And Export

Feb 8, 2014

Code / macro that would automatically search a word doc for keywords and export every instance of that keyword into column A of a spreadsheet, the first three or four words prior to that keywords into column B, and the entire sentence where the keywords is found into column C?

I often pull hundreds of pages of text from a program that exports into Word and have to look through the pages to find every instance where a point is referenced by geolocation. Then I have to filter through that data to determine which of the points I found are truly important before I save it all to a csv or xls and feed it into mapping software.

If I had a code / macro that did the search and export automatically, it would save hours of work.

Search For Keyword In Different Workbook

Jun 21, 2008

I am looking to write a macro that will search for keywords on a sheet, on a workbook at a specific path, and would like some help getting this macro started...

It would get run from "WorkbookA", and would look at "WorkbookB" (wherever it is) and find the cell containing the keyword, where the cell value would be the output. I would really prefer that it did not open Workbook B while this macro is run, if thats possible.

Keyword Search - Macros To Change Font Color For Specific Keywords (not Entire Cell)

May 5, 2014

I need to conduct keyword searches in excel and color the keywords a different color without changing the font color of the entire cell. now, i found some code from another thread that does this, but i cant seem to get it to work with more than 2 keywords. i need fine-tuning the provided code to do what i need it to do.


the VBA code i used was this:


I was playing around with the example, the Cat_Mouse.xlsm, and when i modified the 'myList' and 'myColor' arrays, it does not work.


For example, I modified the code to add the word bat:

[Code] .....

When i run the macros, the word "Bat" does not become colored red. interestingly enough, when i substitute the word "bat" for the word "hat" in the "myLIST array, the word "hat" does change to the red font.

I am looking to use this code to address keywords in my excel file by coloring all key words red and i have more than 10 key words.

Open A Website And Input Text In Search Box?

Apr 22, 2014

I have an Excel sheet with about 1,000 rows. Each row has an origin and destination column. Now I need a code that opens a specific website and goes to a specific tab and then search for the origin and destination fields queries. The code then takes each row and place them in the search query. The result from each row can result a valid connection between an origin and a destination OR no connection exists. So simply if connection is successful, the code simply returns "yes" otherwise "no".

I can open the website from Excel, but what I need to click on specific tab where I do my searches. One of the problems I am facing is that when I try to click on the tab I need I get the message that I must use Internet Explorer or Chrome or Mozilla. Although Excel uses Internet Explorer to open the website. I am not sure why this error.

Attached you will find the following:

1 - Few data rows that we need to run the loop on.

2 - A snapshot of the website that we need to input the data from the rows (FOLLOW LINK)

3 A snapshot to show you the tab ("Ocean Schedule") that we need to access after we open the main website in vba. (FOLLOW LINK)

Sumproduct? Sumif? (search A Range Any Cell Containing Words Or Phrase "20%" )

Jun 4, 2009

I am very comfortable with SUMIF, but need to search a range any any cell containing words or phrase "20%" then need to sum those corresponding cells only.

I.e., something like: SUMIF(A1:A10,..."20%",C1:C10) .... only sum all C cells where an A cell contains any combination of words with "20%" in them.

Search Keyword In Worksheet / Copy And Paste Adjacent Cells To New Worksheet

Sep 24, 2012

I've been tackling this data capture/paste issue for a week or so. I found the string below which does provide a good foundation for my challenge. But, my basic level of understanding macros limits my modifications to meet my needs.

[URL] ......

I have 20 worksheets in my master file corresponding to Excel files individual associates will update weekly. After the associates have updated their individual files for the week, I want to capture the data entered and paste values into a master file containing a worksheet for each associate (sharing the same name as the individual associate file). All of these files are housed on team SharePoint sites.

I need a macro to perform several steps after clicking a "Run Update" macro button in the master file:
Open individual associate fileIn master file, search for each Initiative listed in column B (starting cell B3) in the individual associate file (in column B starting at cell B11)If Initiative is found in individual associate file, copy adjacent data in columns D:J for the respective rowIn master file, paste values to the corresponding Initiative row for the corresponding week's worth of dataIf Initiative is not found in the individual associate file, move to the next Initiative listed in the master fileRepeat these steps for each individual associate file

Linking would be the easiest way to accomplish this if I wanted to have a multitude of weekly individual files for the associates. However, I'd rather each associate have one file for them to update (basically overwriting their previous week's entries).

I need to ensure the paste values corresponds to the appropriate day of the week. In simpler terms, if the date in the individual associate file in cell D9 reads Oct 1, 2012, the data captured from that row needs to be pasted to the corresponding row/column in the master file that reads the same date.

Excel 2010 :: Searching A Folder For A Keyword And Returning The Full Path?

Jun 19, 2013

My Excel 2010 spreadsheet contains client data like the below:


What I'm trying to get from this is a personally addressed email with 2 attachments, one will be standard to all recipients and one will be unique and specific to that recipient. The filename of the unique attachment will contain the reference but will have some other stuff in the filename as well on either side that I will not be able to remove.

In terms of the file locations the unique ones will be in subfolders of the folder holding this workbook and the generic one will be in the same folder as the this workbook.This is some adapted code that solved a similar problem (in Excel 2007 though) on a different website.

Sub Mail_Report()
Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object [code]....

In that case the file started with the "reference" field but in my case it is in the middle and the formats vary depending on the provider, there will only be a maximum of 5 providers but I would like to avoid 5 different macros if at all possible so I need a search function of some sort.

This text should go in column named "Phone": 612-863-4000

This text should go in column named "Fax": 612-863-5667

This text should go in column named "Contact Person 1": Jeffrey D. (Jeff) Peterson

This text should go in column named "Contact Person 1 Title": President

This text should go in column named "Contact Person 2": Daryl Schroeder

This text should go in column named "Contact Person 2 Title": VP Operations

Excel VBA Automation For Internet Explorer To Website

Once the process of pushing this button is done, an unspecified amount of time must occur for data to be gathered and the option of Open, Save, or Canel appear in a Download window. I would then need to Save and Overwrite an existing file.

No Login or Password is required.

I have been able to automate the open of I.E. and input to the three select fields as well as the necessary button push.

However, I am unable to identify how to automatically save the file into a specified location, with overwrite privileges enabled. Below is my progress

Excel VBA / Macro To Extract Data From Website

Nov 15, 2013

Can VBA be used to extract a table from a website and output it on an excel sheet?

Basically we have to log in to a website and type data to our spreadsheet which is a bit tedious from the table on the website.

I'm guessing this can be done in some way but us having to enter username/password on website first to get to page we want will probably cause an issue would it?
