Searching For Missing Values

Jul 18, 2014

I have a list of records that for which I cannot find values for. Essentially I have a dataset that I need to match to other information but for some records this 'other information' is missing.

1. I have a list of records with missing information
2. I have a folder with a large amount of sub-directories
3. I have many DBF files inside of these sub-directories with X columns and x rows
4. Somewhere within some row of some column is a value that links to my list of records
5. I need to search for my value in, say, A2 and return the file name and directory in which it lies
6. It can be text or number

is this clear?

Set Range Of Cells For Searching Missing Combinations?

Apr 19, 2014

The following macro searches for missing combinations. This macro will search the complete list and will return any missing combination from "1, 2, 3, 4" to "7, 8, 9, 10".

I need to make some changes in this macro, so that it will search for missing combinations only within a specified range of cells (and not the whole list). For example (see excel file attached), I would like to place a search within range("G23:J183"), from combination "1, 2, 6, 9" to combination "4, 6, 8, 10". In this case, it should return only 9 missing combinations.

Searching Among Different Cells For Different Values

May 2, 2007

I have the following data

A | B
WD |100 From Bangalore
CR |Hyderabad 50
CR |Mysore 70
WD |900 From Kolkata
and so on in A and B columns. In the C Column depending on the cell value I want just the places like Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mysore, Kolkata etc only to be displayed like shown below.

A | B | C
WD | 100 From Bangalore | Bangalore
CR | Hyderabad 50 | Hyderabad
CR | Mysore 70 | Mysore
WD | 900 From Kolkata | Kolkata
The Places in column B are not at finite position and that is the big problem i am facing when using Left or Right function. Could anyone help me with a proper Excel function to get this done. The thing is the whole cells should be searched and accordingly the output should be obtained.

Missing Values As Non-zero

Jun 9, 2007

I am facing a problem importing Excel data into a finicky graphics program. This program can't accept strings and numbers in the same column. Hence, strings such as #NA, or Excel's standard "" can't be used where there are missing values, as the entire column is then ignored.

But, I would like to provision for future data below the rows that currently exist.

Let's say I am trying to read data from Sheet1 of a workbook. The rows in Sheet1 contain formulas referencing other sheets (e.g. Sheet2!C1-Sheet2!C2). So, if Sheet2 doesn't have data in a certain row, Excel would show 0 in the formula on Sheet1. That would mess up my graph. If I use any other string or "" using a If statement for missing data, then the graphics program doesn't work.

Is there any way say, using dynamic ranges or similar, to populate blank cells in Sheet1 as data arrive in Sheet2, without a pre-existing formula being present in these Sheet1 cells? I can imagine that VBA macros will easily do this (e.g. the thread on Autofill below). But, is this possible without having to trigger a macro as and when additional data arrive?

Searching Through A List Of Values Across A Whole Sheet

Sep 23, 2009

I have a list of values in column A of sheet 2. What I would like Excel to do is search for each of these values on the whole of Sheet 1. Sheet 1 has around 20 columns of information and a dynamic number of rows.

In column B of Sheet 2, Id like TRUE or FALSE displayed depending if the value is found on Sheet 1. For example


If this can only be achieved via macro, please post the code rather than a file as I cant download the file here.

Convert Missing Values (#N/A) To Zero

Jan 31, 2008

I am conducting data analysis on a large data set. Missing values are coded as NA. Likewise, when I perform a calculation on a NA value, I receive the # DIV/0! error.
I want to know how I can automatically change NA to the integer 0 in a large data set so when I perform a calculation on the NA value, I will receive 0 instead of #DIV/0!.

Searching Values And Returning Entire Rows

Oct 3, 2013

I have created a worksheet with 7 Tabs. 6 of the tabs are tables of existing parts and their catalog information. The Front Sheet I want to be a place where people can select data via a drop down or typed in, and in turn have that headsheet display the results of the search.

I have the 6 tabs broken down by part type, and figured those can easily enough be the first choice on my worksheet. So by picking that I can direct excel to which tab we want to run the search on, but ater that I'm drawing a blank.

For an example, say I'm looking for a Elbow that has a 6 size on one end. I would like to use the drop down to choose "Elbows" and then like to select/type 6 in the End 1 size box and have Excel show me all the reslts from the Elbow Tab that match that criteria.

Searching For Values Based On Multiple Criteria

Jul 20, 2009

I have a problem with excel that I have been trying to solve for the past 5 days! I have 2 tables (one with 500 rows, the other with 15000) that contain information about pipes.

The smaller table, Drift List, is to be used as a reference to fill up the bigger table.
Here is how Drift List looks like:

Size NominalWeight WallThickness APIDriftDiameter AlternateDriftDiam.
5.5 14.00 0.244 4.877 7.625
5.8 14.88 0.253 4.915 ----

The other table, Pipe Database, Looks like:

Size NominalWeight WallThickness DriftSize DriftType
5.5 14.00 0.244

I have to fill up Drift Size using APIDriftDiameter from the first table, BUT if AlternateDriftDiameter is available, I have to use that instead.

DRIFT TYPE column has to indicate either API or Alternate (Depending on which one I have used).

Here are the two files:

Wildcard Searching For Multiple Values And Returning A Result?

May 27, 2014

I have been trying to find a formula for this but I have yet to find one that works for me.


English - United Kingdom, Czech, Spanish
UK - United Kingdom
English - US
+8000 more various values

I am looking for a formula that can search for multiple values e.g. english, us, uk and united and then return the value "Yes".

I was looking for something that includes wildcard searches or contains so that it is not affected by upper or lower case but combining this with multiple searches was proving difficult.

Searching For Values Greater Than Zero, Listing 3 Of Those Data In Order

Nov 2, 2008

Below is what I currently have on my excel spreadsheet:

2. Input Column 3
3. 0 No
4. 2 Yes_2
5. 0 NO
6. 0 NO
7. 0 NO
8. 2 YES_6
9. 0 NO
10. 1 YES_8
11. 0 NO

The spreadsheet starts by the user inputting numbers ONLY in column 1 (under input). The rest is done automatically by implementing equations. Column 2's equation is easy, if the value of column 1 is greater than 0, return YES_(row number). In addition, the maximum number of Yes's in column 2 is three (constraint).

My problem is that I need a 3rd column, consisting of only 3 rows that search for YES_1, YES_2, and YES_3. The 3rd column's equation is easy, I will simply use the Vlookup function for YES_1, Yes_2, and Yes_3. Therefore the PROBLEM IS: I need column 2 to output YES_1 (in row 4, from the example above), YES_2 (in row 8) ...etc. This would mean chaning the basic IF equation that I have which simply sees if the value in column 1 is greater than 0 then outputting "YES_the row number".

Looping Through Files In Multiple Folders Searching For Certain Values

May 1, 2013

I'm trying to code a macro to search through all the files in certain folders to find a value defined by the user. The rows containing that value will then be copied and pasted into a separate workbook. My boss currently planning on storing about 550 different files (90 days worth of data) between these folders, but there is the possibility of years worth of data collection, should he change his mind about the 90 days, so I'd like the code to be efficient if possible. What I've tried to do is search each file for the value, then set a range equal the first row containing that value. If the value is found in that workbook, the code loops through the worksheet, adding all the other rows with that value to the range. Then the file looping exits (the values I'm looking for are only contained in one of the workbooks) and the range is copied and pasted into the master workbook. Each workbook has only one sheet.

I'm currently getting a run-time error "13" Type Mismatch error when it gets to the line where the code is supposed to find the value and initialize the range.

Private Sub SubmitButton_Click()

Dim mybook As Workbook
Dim masterbook As Workbook
Dim rownunm As Long
Dim pathparts(1 To 5) As String

Excel 2010 :: Searching For Files By Cell Value And Returning Values

Jun 24, 2014

I need a formula (but most likely a VBA macro) that will search through a folder for a file than get data from that file. The files are named in systematic way, but I need the entire formula to work from inputting a mold number in one cell. E.g. I input 6291 in cell A2 the vba macro searches for file “6291 mold.xlsx” and returns a range of numbers as well as pictures in specified cells. Is this possible? If so how?

The closest thing I have found is VBA macro that retrieves a list of media files in a folder, I listed the code below.

If seen a couple of examples but for whatever reason it doesn't work on my sheet. (Excel 2010 32 bit) I don't understand how to highlight the entire column to see this particular value is not in this list. I have two lists, I want to see what data am I missing In list 2 that I have in list one. Basically all I am trying to do is see what values are not in the second list but are in the first list so I can later add them to the second list. (Also the 2nd list is longer than the first if that makes a difference.)
