I have many excel wordlist, which are being converted from other file formats. Now there are sometimes useless spaces before entries in the cells. There are also some times commas and other not needed signs at the beginning of a cell in a column.
I need a macro, which removes spaces, symbols, letters, numbers or combination of them from the beginning of all cells in a column. The symbols should be chosen before the macro starts its work.
Before running the first macro:
Column A ,Word1 ,,Word2 Word3 ,Word4
After running the macro the beginning should be cleaned from chosen symbols, spaces or signes. (in our example if a cell begins with , then the commas should be deleted).
I am being passed a series of positive and negative numbers in a column - the only problem is that the negative numbers have the - at the end of the series i.e.1234-.Is there someway I can change this with a macro so they read -1234.
at first i wrote company's name short so that i have to type less but now i want full name of company.....
like.....if in sheet#1 column B any company's name is started by Rel of sheet#2 column A , then the cell containing Rel is replaced by Reliance Industries ( sheet#2 column B but same row that of Rel) ........in sheet#1
I have used this code below to split a large excel file into multiple sheets from matching column data, but now I need to split it by a partial match (set number of characters from the beginning) from beginning of the column data.
So with the code provided below using column 3 I would get 10 different sheets since none of the data in the column is identical. I want to modify the code (or come up with new code) so I can set the number of characters to compare from the beginning of the data in the set column and split into sheets based on that. So if I set it to the first 4 characters in column 3 I would receive only 5 sheets sheets: Safe, Fail, Dont, Poop, & 21-4.
What are the modifications or new code needed for this? I have searched for a bit with no luck, just keep finding code to check the full cell data for matches in a set column like this code I have:
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 guess this is a simple one but I am not sure of the best way to do it, I have number of points recorded for everyday in an excel sheet where first column represents date, second column represents group third column represents line and fourth column represents point as shown in the example below
3 19 2222 4324
"3" and "4" represent the 3rd and 4th day of the month, "19" represents the group and 3rd and 4th columns rest are line and point numbers recorded (2222 is first line of day 3, group 19 and 4324 is first point of line 2222 of group 19 on 3rd day and so on....).
I need a macro (or formula) to copy the cells of the last day written in the sheet up to the last row to a new excel sheet, reformat them so that first column has the word "Date" in its first cell, second column has the word "group" third has "line" and fourth has point.
so in the example mentioned here I need it to copy the cells of day "4" including the group, line and point numbers and format them in the new sheet so that first column has "DATE" then 4 for the rest of the rows, second column has "group" and 19 in the rest of the rows, 3rd column has "Line" and all line copied up to last row, 4th column contains "point" and all points copied.
For the below formula is it possible to replace the B's (column location) with a cell Say Z146 which contains the letter B (or a number if thats easier and someone can tell me the numbers for each column).
When the formula is dragged into the next cell (down) it takes its column reference from Z147 and then my life becomes so much easier.
I'm having trouble using the worksheet copy command in a VBA subroutine. I have the following line in my code:
When I step through my code and execute this line, the sheet is copied as expected and put in the correct place, but then instead of the next line of code being highlighted, the pointer jumps to the first line of a function (in a different module) in my code.
I am working with a spreadsheet that has our user data; User(First) Name, User(Last) name, Computer Name, MAC address, Phone Number, Seating Position and Network Port Number.
I have let this get horribly out of sync, moved computers around, and moved them while the MAC address column was hidden, As a result, I have a bunch of users listed as being at the wrong computer. I have a second spreadsheet I generated that gives me the logged in user for about 2/3 of my computers, with the computer name(Just 2 columns, 'A' and 'B'. I would like to have Excel match the computer name and then overwrite the user name. For example, if the first computer in my correct user list is DELL-99945ty2, and the user name is "Jimbo Jones", I would like it to search the first Excel doc(The one with all of the user data), and replace the user name with "Jimbo Jones". Is this simple and straightforward?
In my main spreadsheet, the user name is in column B and the computer name is in column G, So I want to use the values from Column B in my second document to find its match in Column G of the first spreadsheet, and then replace the data in Column B with Column A in the first spreadsheet.
I have a spreadsheet which is linked to other spreadsheets. When I use "find and replace" on this spreadsheet, it causes one of my linked cells to move down one row. Why does it do this? This particular cell has nothing to do with the "find and replace" option.
I have no idea how to stop this from moving this cell down.
In any cell of a worksheet, the user can input a number followed by either a plus or minus sign. After the - or + key is pressed, the cell has to move the plus or minus to the front of the number, then move down one cell. So input in cell A2 would be 125+, that needs converted to +125 and then moved down to cell A3.
I have a column of Supplier IDs. Maximum number of characters is 9. If the supplier ID is not 9 characters long, it should have 0's placed in the front so that there are 9 characters. For example, Supplier ID is 487695. It should look like 000487695. I can get Excel to format the cells correctly by using the custom format. However, when I import into Access, it trims the 0's away even though the field is identified as text because the custom format does not actually change the "value" of the cell. It merely formats the cells.
How can I get this column to correctly import into Access from Excel?
I'm trying to create a lookup formula where it matches the beginning of words and returns the value of a cell I choose. This is my layout. In Workbook1 in column E I have a list of medicine names which i'm putting in from personal medical lists. These names are not "complete", i.e. they aren't the exact names of the medicines. In workbook 2, I have a sheet with the exact names and corresponding codes of the medicines. I want to return the code of the medicine. The beginning of the names of the medicines are the same, so I want to lookup the the X first letters of the medicines I write in manually (Workbook1 column E) and find it in Workbook 2 column B and return value of Workbook2 column A for that medicine (on the same row).
I am trying to create a macro where it finds a a certain word in a column for example C. What i want it to do is find anything that says FWD_EUR and then replace that cell (e.g C2) with CASH_EUR_FWD and after it has done that it replaces the adjacent cell (e.g. D2) with EUR_FWD. I then want this to do the same with FWD_USD to CASH_USD_FWD and adjacent cell to USD_FWD.
In a sheet (4) I have a pivot refreshed by a VBA macro code. Since I have defined a Chart on this pivot, I need to copy this pivot in a new sheet to avoid to reduce rows using a filter of the Chart. I copy this pivot using this VBA code
Sheet4.Select Sheet4.Copy After:=Sheet2
I have e new sheet with a number Sheet(n) not equal to maximum sheet number +1
For a new run of the VBA macro I need to delete this sheet
Sheets(n).Select where (n) is not = maximum sheet number +1 ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Delete
Then I need to avoid the message box where I need to confirm to delete the sheet because the sheet is not empty.
Is there a solution to copy a pivot in a new sheet replacing the previous pivot and vithout changing the number of the sheet?
I'm trying to do is compare 4 columns on 2 sheets. I would like to go down in column "E" on sheet1 and find the exact one on column "A" on sheet2. Once these are equal I would compare F, G, H, on sheet1 with B, C, D on sheet2. If the these three columns are not the same I would like to copy from sheet2 B, C, D from sheet2 to F, G, H.
The problem I have is none of the rows of information will be in sequential order as well as we may not have a match. What I'm saying is row1 on sheet1 could be row1000 on sheet2. Attached is a small example. in the example rows 6, 11, 12, 16 and 19 would be the only changes on sheet1. My example does have the rows in sequential but that would almost never be the case for me....
