Change Content Of One Cell Based On Content Of Another
Apr 18, 2014
Formula/macro/etc that would enable me to have content of a cell changed based on the content of another cell in the same row.
Example: cell in column D says "PSA" - so I would need the cell in column H for that same row to read "Radio"
I would need an entire sheet scanned to review for these occurrences and make the appropriate changes. I also would need the formula to be inclusive enough to scan for variations in column D cell content (PSA 1, PSA 2, etc).
I have a large spring-selection table, which is populated with things like "4.88 x 635" and "5.26 x 584". There are 1520 fields in the table populated with any combination of the 432 springs available for selection. The spreadsheet takes my criteria, finds out which springs it's allowed to choose from, and populates the table. It could be 20 springs, could be 30. I'm trying to get the number down to 10. The table updates when I change the criteria.
What I'm after at this point is a macro which will color-code the table based on the cell contents, so that all the "4.88 x 635" have one color and all the "5.26 x 584" have another colour. Doesn't have to be any particular colour, just so long as it's a bit different to the cells around it. how the table reacts.
The biggest spring size is "6.93 x 1727", which could be converted to a color reference, perhaps by adding up all the digits, or taking out the non-digits and dividing by 123781, I don't know I'm thinking out loud. And then just assign the cell color to that number.
Where to start a macro like this. Obviously it would use ActiveCell.Interior.ColorIndex but I can't find anything like this on the web.
I use this to read cell content, add some text/characters (ie. [ and ]) and change the properties of the complete cell
Sub COMMENT() Worksheets("DVD Lijssie").Activate If ActiveCell.Value 0 Then ' Change all in to ... ... ... ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = ActiveCell.Value & " " & "]" & " " & "[" With ActiveCell.Font .Name = "Arial Narrow" .Size = 8 .ColorIndex = 16 End With End If End Sub HOW can I change this vba-code so it leave's the content of the cell like it is and add some content with the use of let's say TexBox1 and ONLY use different font properties for the newely added content?
I have a chart full of different names which I need to separate them by color when a specific entry is found in a Cell. For example the list has the store name "ZELLERS" + its branch number. (ex. ZELLERS #276 PL or ZELLERS #295 SL and so on). I would like to modify the below code so that It only check for the name ZELLERS and not the branch number. If it finds ZELLERS in any cell In the Range of C1:C500 then color it Red.
Below Code does that but I have to write the exact name as it appears in the cell otherwise it wont find it for me. Is there any way to resolve the issue? I am not an Excel Programmer but Only an Excel user.

In Excell 2000, when you enter a cell by using either the cursor keys or the enter key, the contents of that cell are selected. Typing anything other than the 'F2' key deletes the current entry in the cell, replacing it with what you are typing. This is not the same as double clicking on a cell whereby the cell does not have any of it's contents selected so that when you type the keys are inserted at the cursor position
Is there any way in which this behaviour can be changed so that the first and subsequent characters typed after entering the cell are added to the end of the current contents of the cell ?
I am using VBA to create a word document (.docx). This word document contains plain text content controls as well as picture content controls. I then use VBA to automatically select a picture based on the code below
Code: Set oCC = Word.ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTitle("TabPic").Item(1) On Error GoTo TabErrorHandler oCC.Range.InlineShapes.AddPicture Filename:="X:XFERANDREW-TDCD " & LblVL &
After the document has been closed down I try to open it again and I am told "The file cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents."
When I click details it says "Unspecified error" and "Location: Part: /word/document.xml, Line: 2, Column: 0"
If I click ok it says "Word found unreadable content in "". Do you want to recover the contents of this document? If you turst the source of this document, click Yes.
Clicking Yes opens the document with all the contents and it is now renamed to Document 1. If I click no it does not open.
For a table like the one below produced for the sake of example (actual is much much bigger) I want to make it list rows that are true for a certain column for a certain variable in the matrix. So for say water terrain, which types of activity can I do i.e. swimming. Or for Offroad the activites which I can't do i.e. Run and Swim.
ActivityWaterRoadOffroad Jog nym Run nyn Walk nyy Swim ynn y=yes n=no m=maybe
I have a named range (D:16 F:800) called “NameRange” which contains names. I’d like to create a macro which offsets a letter “x”, 10 columns to the right everywhere that name appears within the range. As an example: If I’m trying to find the name Tom, A dropdown menu shows the name “Tom” ( which I’ve created) whereby it calls upon a script to search within the named range from this:
Bob Kim Tom Tom Sue Mary Bill Ted Tom Sue Bob Fred Bill Sue Bob Tom Kim
I am working on a spread sheet for work were we have to test certain items on certain days, e.g. one item needs to be tested every Tuesday & Thursday, when the test is completed you click on a drop down box and click on completed or in progress.
What I would like are a couple of things to happen as follows:
A message box would pop up when you open the file to inform the employee that the test is due today only on Tuesday & Thursday if not completed or in progress from the drop down box. Once you select completed or in progress from the drop down box the message box no longer appears. Every Tuesday & Thursday when it's first open it deletes the cell content, thus triggering the message box test is due today, and once completed or in progress it no longer appears until next Tuesday or Thursday.
The spread sheet is on shared drive and used by several users, let's just say cell A1 is the cell I have the drop down box
I have standardized each existing worksheets and any new worksheet to have certain parameters. The purpose of the Macro requested is ensure these worksheets are sorted alphabetically (and only these worksheets). The code I have been working with is contained below. It is working as expected but now I need to incorporate a statement which places the following condition:
Sort worksheets only if A3 has cell value of eCRF NameIgnore worksheet name: TOC & ENTER ECRF NAME
VB: Sub Sort_Tabs() 'declare our variables Dim i, j As Integer
I want to format a range of cells based on the name listed in a cell in column A (starting @A6). I currently do this manually. It is to help me visually see the line I am working with and for what person.
I am almost certain that is going to take a VBA, but I know little to nothing about setting one up.
I have created two buttons in a worksheet to navigate to two other worksheets. I would like a cell to display 'YES' automatically if one of the two buttons is clicked and or to display 'NO'. I also would like to change the colors of these cells change automatically depending on which button is pressed.
I have a 3 column table with 20 rows. The first two columns contain travel expense data. The cells in the third column are blank exept for whichever cell I enter an "x" in. Please let me what formula or worksheet function do I use to calculate the travel expenses based on the data in the first two columns that correspond to the row of the cell with an "x" in the third column?
And I have set up a seperate worksheet (2) as an invoice. What I have been trying to do is when I enter a qty in worksheet (1), worksheet (2) will reconise an entry in the qty colum an copy selected fields/ cells. I can do a "=" or use an "if" statement looking at anything greater than "0". but is there a way I can get the invoice worksheet to ignore any lines with "0". So it will only copy over the information with only qtys for the invoice ?.
I have a questioner in a excel spreadsheet. Column C have yes or no answers. If answer yes is implied then I want the number 2 to appear in Column F of no is implied then the number 3 will appear. I am having trouble writing the language for this.
I have a dynamic table (rows regularly added or deleted) that is generated automatically based on choices made by the user in another worksheet. I need a function that will examine all the cells in one column, and when it finds a difference between two cell entries, it will change the border between these two entries to dark (medium weight), and then extend this border across the table. The end result should be that wherever the cell contents differ within a column, the table is divided by a darker border across the entire row.
