I am in the middle of automating a process here at work, the program takes a word, "pencil" for example, from excel. It will then open up a word document with content already in it (premade template). The program will then find all instances of a string, "placepencilhere" for example, and will replace that instance with the string from excel.
Basically I want to be able to take a variable that has a stored string value from excel and use it to replace another variable in a word document.
I tried recording a replace (ctrl+f, replace tab) macro, copying the code, and inserting it into the excel vba code.. but I get a error message. Here is what I have:
I am trying to find a way of capitalizing the first letter of every word in an excel listing of music. i tried the function that was suggested to me in the help =proper(cell#) and it does not work. i ahve a list of 2000 lines in excel to fdo and would like to do it thequickest possible.
I have this project for work where on one sheet information is put in by typing AF, CF, WF. I need to have Excel read the AF, CF, WF and make that read as the full word. Is there anyway to do that? I can get my boss to have people just put A, C, W
I want to have the first letter of every word in a cell to be capitalized, but the rest of each word must remain as is.
Ie: If I have "My AMD CPU still has some pew-pew" in a cell, I want to be able to use a function, let's say:
=CapFix("My AMD CPU still has some pew-pew")
and the output should be:
My AMD CPU Still Has Some Pew-pew
I've tried using:
=PROPER("My AMD CPU still has some pew-pew")
But the output is:
My Amd Cpu Still Has Some Pew-pew
Which is incorrect (capitalization in the rest of the words "AMD" and "CPU" is lost). Does anybody here know what can be done to solve this problem, or have any info about what I can use to solve it? I have not been able to find any built-in Excel function to solve this, nor ASAP Utilities and I can add VBA code and macros, I just don't know how to manipulate the strings correctly or do the loops, etc that I think will be necessary to solve this.
If anyone could help, it would be much appreciated. I've not seen a single site where a similar problem has been posted. Even if you can't give me a full solution, but can point me in any direction that would be useful, I'd be really grateful.
I have a column of references I wish to standardize. Contained within a general text description there is also an order-specific reference number, which is not relevant for my purposes. I wish to find all of these numbers and replace them with nothing (i.e. retain the rest of the description).
The reference numbers are always in the format "P#####/##". Unfortunately these references are in the middle of the text field, not at the start or end, so I can't use a LEFT or RIGHT formula to delete them.
Once these reference numbers have been deleted I will then be able to filter for unique records only. When I do this at the moment the filtering has no effect due to these specific reference numbers.
I have the following letters in cells D2= A D3=G D4 =L
These represent Accomodation,Groceries, and Liquor. Starting at E12 I want a formula , to drag down the column, which will show either Accomodation, Groceries or Liquor depending on the letter I put in cell D12,
Eventually I will possibly need help to summarise these costs on another sheet with other data such as fuel costs and fuel analysis but this will get me started.
I use the following code. I want to make Replace only in the case which there is a whole word in a part of a cell, but not in part of specific characters.
Example: In the code i want to replace the word "to" but replaces all the words that contains "to". For example in the word together lets only the characters gether, and in the word tonight lets only the characters night etc.
I found the below code and have tried adapting it without success.
Code: Sub Colorize_Word() Dim Found As Range, FirstFound As String Dim FindWhat As String, MyColor As Long, Counter As Integer
MyColor = 3
FindWhat = LCase(InputBox("Find what word?", "Color word"))
This code finds any string in a cell of your choice and colors it red. I would really like to replace the string with my own string of text. I couldn't use the simple find and replace function as this replaces the WHOLE cell content not just one word.
I believe the line of code that needs editing most is this one
Looking to build a simple find and replace with an added condition that it must match the whole word since some of my data appears as below:
I am trying to replace abc with alphabets and I need the result: alphabets.abc_no not alphabets.alphabets_no.
What do you think the best approach to this would be? All my data that I need converted is in one column (Column C) which are thousands of rows long and on another sheet I have a list of the conversions I need to do (about 150 - columns A and B) setup like:
I create a monthly excel sheet regarding customer & their payment like this.. Suppose..
Month January 2007 Customer A 2000 Customer B 2000 Cust C 3000
Cust D 3000 Cust E 4000 Cust A 2000
Cust B 2000 Cust A 2000 Cust G 4000
Now, I want to do somthing like that If a customers Name repeat in another month, I mean Cust. A name has been already entered in Month January & if it comes again in february then it should be automatically replaced or highlight with red line Or something like that.
I have never used VBA in word before, so I am assuming I am making it more complicated than it needs to be. I have a macro that stores 20 excel values as variables, then opens up a word document. I want to replace values in word with my values in excel. I keep getting an error with the replace part. I do not want to use bookmarks or mail merge. MSWord is a reference in excel VBA.
Code that stores excel variables (Example: Var1=Data1 and Var2=Data2)... 'Opening up the correct word document Dim WdApp As Object, WdDoc As Object Set WdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application") WdApp.documents.Open ThisWorkbook.Path & "" & Range("D1").Value & ".doc" WdApp.Visible = True
I am looking for a syntax or function wherin i can replace all lines in different cells containing specific string or text in it. e.g. Few cells in sheet contains " This guy is for deployment", other few cells may contain "guy is for core deployment" and other cells may have " project is specific deployment". I want to replace all such lines which contain a word "deployment" with ony one word "Deployment".
I'm looking to simply delete certain words that are in cells, without having to delete rows, columns or the entire cell. I can use 'find and replace' and replace the particular word with a space, but I really want to delete the word. I'm using both Excel 2003 and 2000.
how to accomplish more work quickly is proving difficult. I am making a word cloud of survey responses for my boss and he doesn't like to see similar words in the cloud (like Ease and Easy or even Fast and Quick). I have several hundred of these responses that are open ended answers that say one or many of these terms. Any way I can separate all the words and have them in one neat column? If I can get to that point, replacing those words will be simple enough.
