Extracting Consecutive Letters From Cell And Applying IF Function

Mar 8, 2013

I'm working on an email database and am looking to sort them into type. I am trying (without success) to use the IF function as follows.

If A1 contains the letters "isd" consecutively, then B1=TRUE

If A1 contains the letters "google", "yahoo", "hotmail", or "austin.rr" consecutively, then B2=true

EXTRACTING The First Four Consecutive Numbers And Placing Them In Another Cell

Aug 18, 2009

Column C is the tricky one. It comes from the bank and somewhere in there is a 4-digit tenant reference. I did a formula to try and isloate it and it worked on most but if you look at the very first row, there is a spurious 99 in there, so it didn't work. Is there a way of EXTRACTING the first four consecutive numbers and placing them in another cell?

Applying Numerical Values To Letters In Formula

Feb 28, 2007

I'm putting together an Environment Threat Assessment for work and want to automate as much of it as I can to alleviate the amount of time ppl have to spend putting values in. My main problem is I have three very important columns: Likelihood, Success Rating and Risk Rating. Likelihood and Success Rating values will be selected from the following:

VL - Very Low
L - Low
M - Medium
H - High
VH - Very High
Each of these is given a value: VL = 1, L = 2, M = 3, H = 4, VH = 5.
The Risk Rating is the result of multiplying the Likelihood and Success Rating. So a Likelihood of Medium and a Success Rating of Low will give a Risk Rating of 6. Therefore, the cells on my spreadsheet would look like this:

Likelihood Success Rating Risk Rating
M L 6
The issue is I want a couple of things to occur. Firstly I want keep the values in my Likelihood and Success Rating cells as letters (ie. VL, H, VH etc) rather than numbers, while still generating a number result in the Risk Rating cells. Secondly I'd like to be able to change the colour of the Risk Rating cell to reflect the number it gets assigned. For example Green for < 8, Amber for 9 14 and Red for 15 25. I've been trying to do this with array formulas and am basically going around in circles with no success.

Applying Function To Certain Cells Only Based On Another Column

Aug 17, 2014

Supposing you would like to find the median of numbers in column D, but only for rows that have the word "Jones" in column A? Is there a way to do this? Obviously I know I could do a sort and simply specify the range myself, but we're dealing with nearly 2000 rows and a LOT of different values in column A

It occurs to me that it would be even better if I could ask excel, in effect, to identify every separate text string in column a and then find the median of the corresponding numbers in column D. In other words I wouldn't have to type any strings from column A at all.

Applying Function Arguments As A Control/class Name

Mar 16, 2007

I'm not sure what verbage to use in order to describe what I'm trying to accomplish.

Let me give you a piece of code and the question will be clear.

Function addValuesToComboBox(arg1)
End Function

I would like to use this function later in the code in the form of:


VBA will error out with "Run-time error '424': Object required". I know I need to declare the variable arg1 as a type in order to use it in this form, but I don't know the correct data type.

I also ran across a similar issue like this where the advice was to use the Set function in the form of:

Function addValuesToComboBox(arg1)
Set arg1 = arg1.AddItem("one")
Set arg1 = arg1.AddItem("two")
Set arg1 = arg1.AddItem("three")
End Function

Difficulty With IF Function For Cells Containing Both Numbers And Letters?

Feb 1, 2013

I have a sheet with part numbers, costs and wish to add varying number to the cost in each row, based on a certain aspect of the part number:



In the example, 01/1X/2X/3X are the differentiating aspects of the part number. To rows in column A containing 01 (preceding the dash) I want to add nothing, 1X+.75,2X+1.5,3X+9.

I have researched the nested IF formula and can use it in a test as long as column A contains either numbers or letters. The problem I have is because there is both numbers and letters, the logical argument won't validate "if true". Here is my formula (omitting my attempts with parenthesis etc. around the letter in the logical argument):

Applying Colorname From Another Cell

May 3, 2006

I have cell A7 Merged and need info in that cell. Example of what I want: Say I click on cell A1 and it is the color Pink, but has the letters blue in it. I would like it to display the word "Pink" in cell A7 not the number. Well I would like when you click on any cell with colors, that it will display the color in Cell A7. When I try different ways all it gives me is the number in the last cell of the square not the color and when I click on other cells it will not give me that cells info.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

Dim x, rng As Range, r As Range
Dim myList
Dim row1 As Integer

x = Application.InputBox("Enter size of square: 2=2 by 2, 3=3 by 3, or 4=4 by 4", Type:=1)
Set rng = Range("a1").Resize(x, x)
myList = [{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8;6,11,3,10,13,16,38,53;"Brown","Pink","Grey","Purple","Green","Red","Blue","Yellow"}]
rng. CurrentRegion.Clear

For Each r In rng
x = Int((8 * Rnd) + 1)
With Application.WorksheetFunction
r.Interior.ColorIndex = .HLookup(x, myList, 2, False)
r.Value = .HLookup(x, myList, 3, False)

Range("A7").Value = r.Interior.ColorIndex

End With


With rng
.ColumnWidth = 10
.RowHeight = 50

With .Font
.Size = 14
.Color = vbWhite
.Bold = False
End With

.HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter
.VerticalAlignment = xlCenter

Applying Multiple Formatting To A Cell?

Dec 2, 2011

In Excel we can apply different formatting styles to the "TEXT" contents of a cell while we are in edit mode. For example we can apply "BOLD" to Brown Fox and "UNDERLINE" to lazy in a string "A quick brown fox jump over a lazy dog.

But when the above string is concatenated from the contents of various cells, excel is unable to apply different formatting (as exampled above) in the concatenated cell. Although we can apply bold, underline etc by selecting the concatenated cell but it is applied to whole string and not to the selected parts of string.

Sheet1 *A1Brown2Fox3Lazy4*5A quick Brown Fox jump over a Lazy DogSpreadsheet FormulasCellFormulaA5="A quick "&A1&" "&A2&" jump over a "&A3&" Dog"

Moreover, MS Word's "mail merge" is capable to apply different formatting to different "Fields" in a single paragraph.

Is there any way so we can apply multiple formatting to the contents of a single cell which is not "Text" but result of "concatenate" in Excel, like MS Word's mail merge or as it is applied in custom format within straight brackets like [Red] etc.

Extracting Variables From Quartic Function (4th Degree Polynomial)

Apr 10, 2012

I have quite a number of 4th degree polynomials and attempting to extract the variables from every equation. I used the formula below (from another thread);

=LOOKUP(99^99,--("0"&MID(A1,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"0 123456789")),ROW($1:$10000))))

but it only extracts the first variable.

4th degree polynomial function: f(x) = ax^4 + bx^3 + cx^2 + dx + e

Example of one of the equations: Y = -42.4276 + 319.989 X - 809.094 X^2 + 942.247 X ^3 - 397.587 X^4

I'll like to have the final result like below (Based on the Example equation above)

Applying Formula In Cell Y/ Tab Y Only If Data Is In Cell X / Tab X?

Feb 4, 2014

I have a Excel file with three tabs on it: 'Raw Data', 'Edited' & 'Upload Ready'. As you can probably guess, you dump raw data in the first tab, it pulls the second one where it is 'edited', which then goes through to the final one which contains pre-populated information required on each upload.

Now I'm not great with Excel, so when I get the formula to work as required in H2 (Edited tab) I just drag it down to HX as needed by the number of rows used in the Raw Data tab: View image: Excel drag

Is it possible to apply the formula used in H2 in H3:HX only if there is data entered in A1:AX in the 'Raw Data' tab? ... or rather I'm sure it is possible (I would guess using the 'IF' function') but I can't work out how to do it and then apply it to the entire column.
