Single Column With Multiple Rows Of Data - Compare Names
Apr 12, 2012
I have a single column with multiple rows of data like this: Afirst last, Bfirst last, Cfirst last (all in one cell) etc.
I want to type some names in one cell in the same format (Afirst last, Cfirst last, Bfirst last) but not order and then check if any of those names exist in the first column and count the results of matches.
So in this example I am looking to count Bfirst last and/or Cfirst last in every cell of column A. I need to use a formula.
I am trying to take data from multiple rows and columns (matrix) and reformat it all to fit in a single column.
It would be great if I could select the cells I want to reformat into the single column as the number of rows and columns containing the original data is not always the same (ie 20x20, 21x35, 56x200) etc...
I have a single column of about 1500 points, and I need them to be separated into many rows of 20 numbers.
I have multiple issues:
1) The middle number of each row (10th and 11th) need to be repeated. So a transpose formula can not work all the way through the 20 numbers. Unless I transpose the first ten, then tranpose the second ten. Is there an easier way around this ?
2) The bigger issue is, I would like to write a formula that can manipulate the date to enter in the correct cell.
I have 300 rows worth of data that looks similar to this, all organized in one column:
John Q. Smith Programmer 2111 NW 13th St Anywhereville, USA, 55555 (555) 555-5555 Joe P. Snider Organizer 5645 NW 45th St Anywhereville, USA, 55555 (555) 555-5555 Patty Williams Accountant 6454 NW 34th St Anywhereville, USA, 55555 (555) 555-5555
As you can see it is consistent with the name, position, address line 1, address line 2, Phone number, for every single entry. All my names are already alphabetized so I don't have to worry about it. What I want to do is have the information for each entry translated into 5 separate columns so it looks like this.

Supposing I started the sheet in the top left corner at A1, I was just going to have cell B1=A1 then Cell B2=A6 then just autofill down column B but it doesn't work. I have seen some people do something similar to what I want with VBA but I am convinced there has to be something simple in with an excel formula seeing as my information is already so organized and consistent.
See data in the attached image in Col A thru Col D. In Col E, I want to populate the max value for the same part # from Col C or Col D depending upon value in Col B.
I have included a sample of the expected results in Col E for illustration purposes.
For example Row 3,5,6 are all part # 1 with Col B ="Y", suggesting they are interchangeable parts, therefore, I would like the formula to have ability to pick 10 (since its largest between 3,10,0) from Col C.
I have a set of data with 5 columns. The first column is ID. Now I have the same ID recorded several times with different data (in the other 4 columns) against the ID. I want to concatenate the data with the same ID into the same row. The data has already been sorted by ID. If it is the first time this ID appears, record the whole 5 columns. If the ID appears again, then record only the 3rd, 4th and 5th column. When I run my code, I got error 'subscript out of range (Error 9)' . It seems that the array I use has only 5 columns. But I don't know how to modify this.
VB: Sub Patient_Detail() Dim n As Integer 'index of rows to record to Dim i As Integer 'index of column to record from
As a note: there is a maximum of 4 Price/QTY breaks, so the script can be hard coded for that. When I tried this, I had it looking at the Item column, finding out how many breaks there are for a specific item and then doing a loop to extract the qty and price to a single row in the format shown above. It worked for the first 2 items, but then the loop got throw off. I will see if I can reproduce the code for that.
I imagine my goal could be achieved via some scripting code, but, alas, I don't do vbs. Here's the situation: I have a spreadsheet generated by another office which lists individuals' names and information about participation in various programs. Each line lists name, address, program title and amount. The next line may be the same name, address with a different program and amount. Each person may have 4-5 entries. I want to make single entries for each individual, with colums showing the programs and amounts. Current: ID Name Address Program Amount 1 Bob home A 25 1 Bob home B 37 2 Dave home A 22 2 Dave home B 10 2 Dave home C 21
Need: ID Name Address Program A Program B Program C 1 Bob home 25 37 0 2 Dave home 22 10 21
Hopefully this makes it a bit more clear. The only way I know how to accomplish this is the "old fashioned" long hand approach of cut & paste. There are several thousand individuals, with (currently) tens of thousands of rows.
I would like to automate, due to how long it would take to manually organize the data myself. I have all of the raw data needed organized into 3 columns. The problem is that some of the related data is divided up into multiple rows, based on ID number. What I would like to do is take the related CPT codes and respective descriptions, from the same ID number, and place them on the same row. I am going to include some pics and even a small chunk of the source data. Here is a pic of the raw data:
And here is the first 3 already done:
The number of CPT codes per ID number range from 2 - 5 I believe, maybe 6. Not sure if this has any bearing on how it is done.
retrieve the multiple rows of data from one specific item to another worksheet inside same workbook. below attachment is my sample workbook.
inside the workbook, eg.. please have a look on Sheet 3 (the record of the item and its description) will store on Sheet 2. From sheet 1, when user choose the item from drop down list, and click the button will direct to the retrieved result in sheet 2. my question is i cant retrieve the multiple rows of data exactly in the sheet 2. it only remains one item for one row of description.
and below attached picture is what i wish to achieve =)Capture.PNG
I have to worksheets: Sheet1, Sheet2. In sheet 1, I have some data like this (in first col is 1, second col is a, third col is c etc. ):
1 a b c d 2 e f g h . . . .
I need in sheet 2 in range A1(only in this range one big text), something like this: a,c,e,g ........ ( row1-col2,row1-col4,row1-col2,row1-col4 ......) ( separated by ","). The number of rows from sheet 1 is variable. The dataf a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h ... is some random text.
I need a macro that will take hours by day (columns) by service (rows) per client (sheet) and summarize the data into one database of rows containing client, service, date, and hours. The "Summary of Charges" should only include service hours > zero. I am attaching a sample file. I have little to no experience with vba so I don't even know where to begin. I can copy code.
in moving data from multiple columns to a single column. I have attached a sample image from an excel file which details the requirement. The first column contains a qualifier, that should remain constant when the data from columns B to the end move to a single column "B". The number of columns for each row is different, however, there is a maximum number, say 25. As mentioned in the image, when the data from columns B to the end is moved in to column B, column A is retained fixed, to the original value, and the original data below it is pushed below. Any pointers to how this can be achieved by VBA or without VBA?
I saw this thread from June Cut & Paste Macro: Move Address From Column To Row and I think this what I would like to have my macro do. I have one column which is copied and pasted as text in excel and there is several blank rows.
I attached the spreadsheet example - it has 40 lenders, with the top row being the lender name (A1), followed by address(A2), city-state (A3), two blank rows(A4-A5), lender type (A6), approved date (A7), one blank row (A8), lender specialty (A9), telephone (A10) , e-mail address(A11) and two blanks rows (A12-A13) and A14 starts over again. For this example there should be 8 columns and 40 rows (lender name, address, etc...). As I mentioned I think the previous thread's macro would work with some minor tweaks. I couldn't figure out the best way to handle the blank rows and or remove the blanks and what to add or take out of the macro code.
I'm trying to work out how to take all cells with data from multiple columns and stack them in a single column.
Here's the history...
I have multiple part numbers in single cells in column A. I perform a text-to-columns function. The resulting part numbers spread across multiple columns (say, B through K). Now I need to get all the part numbers, in their own cells, stacked in column A for one continuous list of single cell part numbers.
Is there a VBA option for cutting only the data cells from Column B-K and pasting the data at the bottom of column A while avioding blank cells?
I have a long list of data with many columns and I'd like all the information to be in one column without manually copying and pasting each column and adding to the first column. The data has different amounts of rows and columns as well. An Example is below. I'm using Excel 2010. Is there a formula or something for this? This isn't the data I'm using but just an example since I do this frequently.
I am trying to compare multiple column in a worksheet to find common component in all the columns and what is unique to a particular column only. And list the results/finding in adj column. What i am trying to accomplish is something as below.
I have a table of data (say Column1 to Column 5) with multiple rows.
Column 1 to 4 will have the lookup values in multiple rows and Column 5 data should be picked up using vlookup or other lookup function.
I managed to somehow bring all these lookup values in (Column 1 to 4) in a single column in another sheet. I am now trying to use some lookup or other functions to match this single column and pick column 5 data in original sheet. Result i am expecting is lookup value in first column and next to it column 5 value.
It is basically a lookup wherein lookup value is spread over multiple rows and columns and result column is fixed. I tried using vlookup, but lookup value column and column number had to change every time when i moved from column1 to 4.
I am trying to come up with the most efficient way to copy data to multiple sheets within the same Excel workbook. The original data exists within one column on a summary sheet (could have up to 500 individual entries). I want to copy each individual entry to a unique sheet (that already exists), but in the exact same cell location within each sheet. I would only want to copy the original data value and not any formatting. Is there an efficient way to do this?
In my example spreadsheet, the original data is on the SUMMARY sheet. Sheets A through J would be the target sheets, with cell B2 as the target location for each of those sheets. My example shows the result of a manual copy paste value process, but I am hoping to automate that.
I have a workbook with many sheets of similar but not identical data. I need to extract columns from each sheet based on 5 header criteria and paste them to a single sheet. Each worksheet contains these 5 criteria.
I've been working with the VBA script I've pasted below. It's grabbing the 5 column criteria that I have in sheet 12, and comparing them to sheet 1 in the workbook, then copying them to sheet 12. This much is good, but I need the script to also return the data from the other worksheets as well. I've tried modifying the script based on other loop functions in other scripts I've found, but I'm not having any luck.
I have a list of names in a single cell. They are all seperated by a comma, then a space. Example would be: John Smith, Steve Wilson, Wallace O Malley, etc. What formula could I use to pull out the names individually, starting from the farthest right?
