Vba To Unmerge Cells

I have a question/problem on using Unmerge in VBA. I have a spreadsheet that in Column J has some cells/rows that are merged. I need to unmerge these cells. Not all rows have this merge, so I think there would need to be some sort of IF statement or something...but I'm not sure how to go about it.

I can say that if, for example, cell J19 is merged, it would be with K and L. Then maybe, J24 with K24 and L24 are merged. Then maybe J27 with K27 and L27....and so on. For the most part the sheet would have about 200 rows of data. But only would I find about 20 or so of these merged cells. I also have 19 excel files to do this to, or otherwise, I would just do it quick and dirty, manually-style.

As an added task, once the cells are unmerged I'd like to take the value found in cell O19 (same row as where the merge was found) and copy it into L19.

VBA Code To Unmerge Cells On Specific Worksheets
I have a workbook with multiple worksheets. On some of those worksheets a have merged cells, so in order to paste new data I need to unmerge them first. Below is the code that I wrote for it. However it doesn’t work and returns “Run-time error '1004': Application-defined or object-defined error”. I looked at this post List Maximum Value From Each Worksheet and tried adding With – End With, but it failed too. As far as I understood the problem is that the Worksheets/Sheets object does not support UnMerge property, but I may be wrong. If I add ws.Activate line (test2) everything works fine.

However I was wondering if there is a way to do it WITHOUT activating the worksheets.

Sub test1()
Dim i As Integer, ws As Worksheet

For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
Select Case ws.Name
Case "5 - Top Network Facilities", _
"5b - Top Arb Facilities"
For i = 0 To 9
ws.Range(Cells(2 + i * 5, 1), _
Cells(6 + i * 5, 1)).UnMerge
Next i
Case Else
End Select
Next ws
End Sub

Unmerge Merged Cells
I have read the posts regarding merged cells and understand they should be avoided, but I am working with spreadsheets created by others. My problem is that I need to sort the data, but some of the cells are merged so it won't work. Is there a macro command to easily find the merged cells and unmerge them?

Unmerge Merged Cell And Put Value In All Cells
Is there any quick and easy way to unmerge merged cells and put the merged cell value in all the merged cells. For example, if I have A6:A15 merged together and its value is "FirstMerge" then I would like to unmerge all A6:A15 and then put "FirstMerge" in all the cell A6,A7,A8 etc. etc. upt oA15. I have lot of these merged cells in a sheet and I get this every month and makes any data processing very difficult. A macro or VBA code or any other solution will be fine.

Unmerge And Spread Merge Data To All Cells
In the attached document, there are some cells which have been merged. For instance the cells A4 thru A7 were merged as one field. if you examine B4 which is actually made up of B4 thru B7 the data contained therein is 123. Is there a way to unmerge these merged cells and have the value (in this case 123) appear in each line of the unmerged cells? If you right click and click unmerge, it unmerges okay but does not populate each line with the data which was on the original field.

"Get rid of merged cells!"

You can read it often on this Board.

I will not open any debate on the subject, but just want to provide a solution to get rid of them automatically. Anybody who likes can refer to this thread.

This code is changing layout.

1. Could take a while when you have sheets with large used range or a lot of merged cells. You can follow the status and can interrupt it if you want.

2. Save before executing. I'm quite sure it works good, but the result might be something else then you had in mind, especially when you are quite new to this.

Option Explicit

Sub Unmerge_CenterAcross()
'Erik Van Geit

'merged cells will be unmerged
'contents will be centered across merged area

Dim LR As Long 'Last Row
Dim LC As Integer 'Last Column
Dim i As Long
Dim j As Long

Count # Of Cells Minus Red Cells VBA
I have tried to figure out how to count all cells in a column and subtract any cells that contain characters with a red font. I'll attach an example. I need code that will work in VBA so that in the case that the column does not contain any cells with red numbers it won't come up with a debug error.

In excel I normally do this manually with this formula: =count("") I normally highlight all cells except the red ones. See attachment for example.

Also, the # of rows is never the same. Some files will be 100 rows, some will be 1000, depending on the store's file we get. so the code would probably have to contain something like .lastactiverow or something.

VBA Colouring Cells
I have a spreadsheet that contains data I import from various sources. Once the import is complete I need to colour various cells based on their contents. Normally I'd use conditional formatting, but there are more than 3 conditions so I need to use VBA (preferrably that i can turn into a macro and assign to a button to click once I've finished the imports each time)

eg: Everytime a cell content is the word "RED" , colour it red - then the same with various other colours.

Google has found me a change event piece of code but it doesnt work when you're cutting and pasting some info.

VBA: Comparing A Value To Several Different Cells
I need to compare a value to several cells and print the value into a new cell if and only if the value is not in any of the cells I am comparing to.

Say cells A1, A4, A8 and A12 contains different numbers. I want to compare a value, say 120, to the values of the above cells and if it is not contained in one of those cells I want to enter 120 into cell A16. If A1, A4, A8 or A12 contains the value 120 I want to leave A16 blank or write 0 to it.

Is there an easy way of doing this? Right now I am using a if-test for each of the cells I am comparing to, but this gets very messy as the number of cells increases.

Counting Cells Within Vba
I have written some VBA code to to test if there are 8 names within a range (EF5:FH5, these are 8 merged cells, (4x4 cells)), if there is 8 names within the cells, ie not any empty cells, then the coding will add the new staff name to "trigger_box_1b", and if not then "trigger_box_1a". These trigger boxes are then used to populate further cells.

Private Sub Trigger_Box_1_Change()
Windows("Admin Skills Matrix.xls").Activate 'puts focus on correct spreadsheet
Sheets("Skills Matrix").Select 'puts focus on correct page
Select Case WorksheetFunction. CountIf(Range("EF5:FH5"), 0).double
Case 0
Trigger_Box_1b.Text = New_Staff_Name
Case Else
Trigger_Box_1a.Text = New_Staff_Name
End Select
End Sub

the problems I have be having is that VBA is not recognising the Countif function ("Compile Error: Invalid qualifier", then highlights the Countif). I have tried using a CountA function with the same responce. I have tested the rest of the coding and know that it's working fine (don't think anyone would like to see 75+ pages of VBA coding)

VBA Refuses To Change Cells
I'm trying to clear one set of cells when a change is detected in another, but my VBA function refuses to change the cell values.

Attached is a stripped-down version of the sheet & code which manifests this problem.

The affected cells are unlocked etc, and the code is correct -- at least, it correctly gets to the proper range (or cells) on which to call (in my various attempts) ClearContents, .value="", etc. So the problem is not the algorhithm passing the variables but in the specific attempt to change a sheet's cells' values.

ActiveCell is A1.
