I have a spreadsheet where there are lines of different Wage Types but only certain combinations are needed. For example I have Pay Area 1234 which needs all wage types except those beginning with a 9.
To do this I have set up Sheet1 to look like this:
and not 12349 as I do not require this type.
The problem here is I need to add a wildcard to the end of these so it finds anything that starts with 12341 etc.
Sheet1 contains the personal details of employees and I have concatenated the Payroll Area and Wage type in column D.
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set MySheet = Sheets("data")
LR = MySheet.Cells(Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUp).Row
For i = LR To 2 Step -1
I have numerous formulas that use a macro with an indirect cell reference, for example: INDIRECT(macro(A21))
I am moving these formulas to a different workbook and I need them to still refer to items in the old sheet. I accomplish this by using this formula:
INDIRECT(CONCATENATE("OtherSheet.xls!",macro(A21))) This works. However, I need to do a global search and replace for all of these formulas without deleting my indirect cell reference. I could replace macro with CONCATENATE("OtherSheet.xls!",macro but that would leave me short a ). Is there a way to use a wildcard to accomplish this? It does not seem that replace macro(*) with CONCATENATE("OtherSheet.xls!",macro(*))
I need to do a vlookup on C1 in range A1:B1 that will return B1 if C1 contains the string in A1. I've tried using the TRUE variable in the vlookup formula which does not require an exact match. This works for about 80% of my data but is not 100% accurate. Of course I've got a long list of data ... not just the 3 cells.
I need to get rid of the questions marks in the text on my sheet, but am unable to get my VBA code to search for an actual question mark and not the wildcard. I'm using the replace function as follows:
wsReport. Cells = wsReport.Cells.Replace("?", "")
1. What's the trick to searching for wildcard characters?
I'm trying to perform a search of over 15,000 entries using a wildcard. Sheet1 is a list of streets in the county where I live, and I would like to be able to type a part of the name that will return every instance of that name appearing.
I found a code which i have tried to adapt, but it is not working.
The item being searched will be entered into TextBox1, and I'm guessing that the error I am receiving is in the .AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=TextBox1"*" line of code. This is the original sample I found onlne:
where they were only looking for the letters "GB".
I have a sheet with Names in it. I need to look those names up and find which org they belong to. The problem is the the names have many characters after them, and many names belong to a few orgs, with a the rest belonging to many orgs. (See below)
I have been trying to get a Vlookup to work, but since it can't go left, it won't look up the orgs that don't own at least three names. And I can't get the search to work on the names.
I would like to search for a certain pattern that appears in a cell. For example, I have certain cells that begin with a 7 digit project code (Ex: "1234567 - Project Red"). I was planning to use an IF inside a FOR loop and then do an action when I find the cell with the pattern. I thought I remember it being something like Format(########*) so that I have the wildcard on the end since there is more than just the numbers. how to make other patterns work such as Number-Letter-Number or Capital-Lowercase-Capital
I am trying to run a routine in VBA that will Search for a Part-No. that normally contains asterisks. It is giving me bad positive Search results due to the coding looking at the (*) asterisk's as a wildcard character.
The following Part-No.'s are located in cells (C11:C16): 9L3Z*17757*BCP 6C3Z*16138*AACP AE5Z*16138*B AE5Z*17E811*CF AE5Z*17E811*F AE5Z*17E810*F
Part-No. to be Searched for: AE5Z*17E811*F
When the below code is run, the incorrect Part-No. 'AE5Z*17E811*CF' is found in cell (C14) rather than the correct Part-No. found in Cell (C15).
Code: 'The following 2 lines are defaulted for ease of coding pNumb = "AE5Z*17E811*F" Range("C11", "C16").Select
I need to replace "G542" in the formula above. For example, in cell J541 shown above, I need it to output "1996-1999|2000-2001" instead of "1996-2001" I need the output to include LEFT(G541,4)&"*"&RIGHT(G541,4)
I am building somewhat of a rudimentary search engine that looks for a name, address or unique identifier, using an Index Match formula that searches with a wild card:
"Name": is the defined name for column C on a separate sheet. F3: is "search field"
The current formula (above), only returns the first match. The source data is only 927 lines so not overly large. I would like to have an additional page that will show the potential results from the wildcard search via a formula. Therefore needing results; 2, 3, 4, 5 etc. from the Index Match. I have searched high and low for solutions but I have found none in regards to retrieving multiple results from a wildcard search, only on a specific term.
I have the following vlookup working exactly as I want it to in excel: =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(LEFT(C2,10)& "*", NAME,2,FALSE)),"",(VLOOKUP(LEFT(C2,10)& "*",NAME,2,FALSE))) -NAME is a defined section on another worksheet
The problem I have is when I come to use this within a vba macro I'm writing the wildcard section automatically gets spaces added so it goes from "*" to " * " and excel doesn't like it! The code I'm using to write it into the cell is simply:
Im am trying to create a search marco button that allows me to search in multiple worksheets in one work book. I came across this CODE the first part of it works. It pops open user input box and ask for the word that i would like to search but the this error message pops up Runtime error1004 Method 'range" of object'_Global'failed and i dont know what to do
Private Sub SearchButton_Click() SearchString = InputBox("Enter Search String", "Search") If SearchString = "" Then Exit Sub For Each c In Range(myRange) If InStr(LCase(CStr(c)), LCase(SearchString)) Then
I transferring data from the mainframe and some data has ????. I can not replace them with something else because excel think it is wildcard. The reason for this request is I was trying to count the number of cells that has ???? and the count was something different each time. If you want to have fun try it out. It will count ?, ??, ??? but not ????.However my question would be how to change this (????) to some thing like unknown...
For Each rngC In rngJbn rngC = Trim(rngC) If rngC.Value <> newvalue And rngC.Value <> "ab-" Then 'MsgBox "****" & rngC & "***" Résultat = Application.CountIf(Range("C2:C" & Range("C" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible), rngC)
MsgBox rngC & " " & Résultat & " " & i End If newvalue = rngC.Value Next
Is it possible to use the wildcard in an IF formula? For instance, I have a spreadsheet with text and numbers in the cells, the number of characters varies in the cells so a left, right or mid is out. I want the formula to look to the cell and if any part of the text contains "ABC" then I want to return 1. =IF(C18="*ABC*",1,"") Cell C18 containts the letters ABC in order but my formula is still returning blanks?
The use of * as a wildcard in excel can be extremely useful, however, can it be turned off? I work in the education sector and am currently number crunching GCSE results. When it comes to calculating A* grades versus A grades, B grades, etc, I cannot seem to do it because of the wildcard.
As far as I know, a wildcard can't be used in an "if" statement. I have a list of "job names" that vary slightly from time to time. When we use a Bunnings "(building account) people give a job name such as "121 William Drive". Sometimes however, the person in the store spells it incorrectly. Is there a way to find a wildcard in the following manner?
Find any word that begins with "121" and ends in "ve"
In a1 it says: "121 wilaim jnes drive" I have tried the following formula in b1:
Why does it say "no"? Is there a formula for using wildcards in an "if" statement?
