We are in the process of switching from running Excel 2007 under Windows XP to running Excel 2010 under Windows 7. Most of my Excel reports are not having any issues. However, I have several macros that cause Excel to crash when they go to save the file. Through trial & error, I have found that the problem seems to occur after deleting custom lists that were created earlier in the macro. Here's the pertinent code:
' Declare Variables Dim VarListNum1 Dim VarListNum2 Dim VarListNum3
When I execute the macro line-by-line, it is creating & deleting the custom lists as expected. However, if I try to save the file after any of the custom lists have been created, Excel crashes. Has something changed in Excel 2010?
I have 4-5 separate lists of words/letters and I would like to combine them in a certain order but creating all possible combinations resulting a new word. It's like a conjugation tool for verbs. For example if List 1 = be/el/ki/meg; List 2= m List3=e/é; List4= gy/" "; List 5=" "/ek/sz/nnek So the output has to be (if the order is List1+List2+List3+List4+List5)= bemegy/bemegyek/bemegysz/bemesz/bemész/elmegy/elmennek/ ..... and all possible combinations.
Preferentially I would like to automate it in a way that it straight outputs into MS Access. Also can it be automated that it reads the list from a file (database)? (Also can it recognize the word by letters? Because the basic word that I would load the program= List2+List3+List4)
I have the following code which works but after the user gets an initial error says that they have to enter what is a ComboBox choice they get a second error when they press backspace to delete their entry. Is there a way to just give them the first error but not an error when they press backspace to erase their mistake in the form?
This checks the user input...
Private Sub Combobox5_Change() If ComboBox5.ListIndex < 0 Then MsgBox "Please Only Pick From The List. Use Admin Page to Add More to the List", vbCritical, "Error" End If End Sub ...........
So essentially I need a VBA Macro code for Excel 2003 that can take raw data that is input every month via a text document and move it to the next sheet in the workbook. This data is essentially broken down by a "platform" in the raw data section ("P") with monthly totals for each month but it is broken down by platform in total which goes in descending monthly order on the "dat" tabs (which is the final place for the data).
So what needs to happen is the data for the last two years must go from the "P" tab to the "PDat" tab under the correct platform and the correct spot for the newest month. The data that is input each month is in the same format month to month, just starting two rows down from the last month.
At the end of two years, the oldest year of data must be deleted and the other data moved up to the vacant area so that the sheet never grows too large (i.e., at the end of this year 2012 will be deleted and all the data will need to get moved up).
Usually it's to count for one unique word in a cell. But what if I have 2 or more unique word in a cell and need to be counted for?
for example 10827Holiday Decorations & Party Supplyholiday decoration supply10827Holiday Decorations & Party Supplyseasonal decorative this category has 5 unique words in the synonym list
11044Facial massagerfacial11044Facial massagerbeauty care product11044Facial massagerbeauty appliance11044Facial massagerbeauty11044Facial massagerbeauty care11044Facial massagerbeauty product11044Facial massagerfacial appliance this category has only 5 unique words although the synonym list is much longer.
A friend of mine is playing a computer game, and he has to create 50 different potions to obtain her next goal. She would like to know if it's possible with excel to generate a list of potions based on 7 different elements. Here are the 7 elements : Black orchid, Cactus, Lotus, Pitcher plant, Rose, Tiger lily
Every elements could be repeated to generate one potion.
Therefore, the following combinations are valid :
Cactus - Cactus - Cactus Cactus - Rose - Cactus Cactus - Cactus - Rose Cactus - Rose- Rose
As long as there are no more than 3 elements, it's ok. I'm not looking for the precise coding, I just need to be pushed in the right direction...
I'm trying to make a game where from a choice of 16 words the contestant has to choose four of those words that, when another word is placed before or after each word it makes a phrase.
e.g From this list of 16 words albert bell
choosing bell, bottle, print, stocking can all have BLUE placed before them to make bluebottle, blueprint etc. That would be the correct answer. Choosing their four words would be from a drop down list of all 16 words, separate cell for each list options/chosen answer. bell bottle printstockingCORRECT
There would be 4 rows in total for 4 different answers to be made from the 16 words on offer. I have tried everything to get it to work in the 5th cell but it's difficult.
it is possible to have a drop down list (Cell A1) where you can type in the first few letters of a word and have the drop down list go to the the words that begin with those first few letters (searching in column 10) instead of having to scroll down the entire list to find the word / item you are looking for.
I ask since the drop down list may end up having up to 1000 words in it.
Im hoping there is an Excel Formula (not VBA Code) solution to this problem.
I understand how to use the Substitute command in Excel, but I would like to be able to provide a list of words and have the Substitute command use that list to replace every occurrence within a given cell with a blank ("").
The twist to this is, that the List of Words will be Dynamic, and thus the formula will need to account for that.
NOTE: the formula should NOT replace parts of words, e.g., if the List Word is "can" and the cell to be evaluated contains "candle" the formula should NOT replace the "can" in "candle" with "". Only whole word matches should be replaced.
I have a column of text strings on Sheet1, Column A, which I need to check for the presence of keywords listed on Sheet2, Column A
So if any word from the keyword list on Sheet2, Column A is found in, say, cell A2 of Sheet1, the cell to its right (B1) should have a formula to display the count of keywords found in A2. I also would like to see each keyword identified either through a highlight or a list. I need the formula to NOT be case sensitive and the match does not have to be for whole words).
I have a spreadsheet of part #'s, descriptions, manufacturer names, and manufacturer part #'s. (It's a list of the inventory in my warehouse). Each row contains information for just the item in that row. Row 2 references another part in my warehouse, row 3 yet another, and so on.
Many of the parts have more than one potential manufacturer and part #, (meaning that any of those manufacturer's part #'s are basically the same tool; just different brands. At one time we may get a shipment of one, at other times we may get a shipment of another). For example, a screwdriver may be listed like this:
Part # 1234 screwdriver, mfg Snap-On, part # 456, mfg Stanley, part # 789, mfg Mac Tool, part # 439.
Then further down the list, there may be another part listed like this:
Part # 9980 wrench, mfg Stanley, part #741, mfg Snap-On, part # 852, mfg Proto, part # 369.
If you can imagine that data across the cells of a spreadsheet row, notice how the mfg name 'Snap-On' was the first mfg name on the screwdriver, but it was listed as the 2nd mfg name on the wrench.
So, here's my question: I want to be able to group all of the items made by any one manufacturer together in a new list. If all of the manufacturer names were in the same column, I could simply sort the list by that column, but since I've got thousands of rows with the mfg name I'm looking for in different columns on different rows, I thought maybe a macro could search each row for the word I'm looking for, then if found, take the whole row and copy it to a new worksheet. So the end result would be, If I wanted to see all items of which Snap-On is an acceptable supplier, I could get a list of all potential Snap-On items grouped together.
I'm sorry this is so long. I may have over-worded this and it may not be too clear. I could email an example of the spreadsheet if anyone needed more info to figure out what I'm looking for and was willing to take a look at it.
2. Once the entire list is broken down into its many parts, use the pivot table feature of excel to determine how common each of the parts is within the entire data set.
So, my questions are these:
1. Do you believe this is the best way to solve my problem? If not, what would be the preferred method? 2. If this is the best method, what function or script would I use to accomplish the first step of breaking down the lines into their individual parts?

I currently have a spreadsheet with the following. I would like to convert the GL Date to just pick up the month. I have tried =mid(cell,4,2) but because this is a excel date it will not pick up 01 as the excel number for this date is 410001
I have a list of 30 words that I am filtering a column of sentences for. If I put the list of 30 in column A and the list of 10,000 sentences in column B, is there a formula that will identify the cells with sentences that contain a word from column A?
I have a column of words in Column A and I want to replace all the times that these words appear in the rest of the excel sheet with the words in Column B. If someone has already answered a similar problem link me to the thread because I can't find anything.
I wonder is there a way in excel to replace multiple words at once. To have like script where I had all words that need to be replaced and words replacing those. And just click the button and done? More specifically I'm translating some exports in xls and there are few words repeating over and over again in every document. So for example I need to replace word parfem for perfume like 500 times in one excel document atd. I think there has to be a easier way to replace those words at once.
I've been using conventional method to do this and it's time consuming. I would like to total up 2 column. A multiply B to be exact. Below are some examples:
Table 1 - Before totaling up:
Quantity Product 5 2 x Button A White 3 4 x Button B Pink 4 5 x Ribbon A Black 2 3 x Thread A White 6 2 x Cloth A Blue
Table 2 - After totaling up:
Quantity Product 10 Button A White 12 Button B Pink 20 Ribbon A Black 6 Thread A White 12 Cloth A Blue
I need to have the sum of the "Quantity" multiply "Product". Or in short A x B. And the end result need to have the number and "x" sign removed while keeping on the the products names. (2 x ) Take note it's "number" space "symbol" space.
I am trying to find the Maximum Value in Column C based on the criteria that Column B contains "Afghanistan but NOT Mobile.
In a second cell I also want to find the maximum value in Column C based on the criteria that Column B contains "Afghanistan" AND "Mobile"
The code I have come up with is in the table however it is only showing the max value for cells containing "Afghanistan". If I add the wildcard "*" it does not return a value. how I can achieve my objectives?
I am suffering with split a long descriptions into 3 cells with criteria 1st cell not more than 30 characters, 2nd cell not more than characters and 3rd cell will locate the remaining characters there. I think this is quite easy if I use LEN/MID/RIGHT/LEFT formula. However, I wish the formula will smart enough to split word by word. refer to example below:-
"My lecturer replied, that i really did very bad in final, nothing's gonna change my plan."
If I use left(A1,30) formula, the result is "My lecturer replied, that i re"however, the word "really" is cut half way. I am finding the formula that split description to not more than 30 characters and won't cut my string and become incomplete word. Expected result should be 1st cell "My lecturer replied, that i", then "really did very bad in final," at 2nd cell.
