Excel: Checking values on multiple cells and transferring values to 1 cell

Question: Excel: Checking values on multiple cells and transferring values to 1 cell

Hello Everyone,
(This is kind of long but I didn't know how else to explain everything)

There are two parts to my question below.

I have a spreadsheet with roughly 40 columns

An Example of some of the columns would be:


B1 = Client Name E1 = Travel F1 = Backup G1 = PC Install H1 = Data Recovery | X1 = Total | AE1 = Summary
B2 = Tony Smith E2 = $70.00 F2 = $0.00 G2 = $95.00 H2 = $0.00 | X2 = $165.00 | AE2 = (See Below)
B3 = Tom Daniel E3 = $70.00 F3 = $0.00 G3 = $0.00 H3 = $725.00 | X3 = $795.00 | AE3 = (See Below)
B4 = Rene Little E4 = $70.00 F4 = $125.00 G4 = $95.00 H4 = $995.00 | X4 = $1285.00 | AE4 = (See Below)

Currently this spreadsheet is being analyzed to be used to track field technician jobs and figure everything out for accounting.

I have been asked to please make a cell with a list of the information above so that accounting can just copy and paste from that cell into quickbooks in order to send these people out a receipt instead of having to retype everything into quickbooks. This list has to be based upon whether or not there is a value greater than 0 within that cell then it will grab both the heading cell in the first row and the value of that cell it was checking and place it as a line item in another cell.

I know how to do half of what they are asking and if I was dealing with 1 column I can do the other half.

I know how to list items in 1 cell using the char(10) function within the cell.

I don't know how to check multiple cells at once to see if there is a value greater than 0 and then if there is to take the cell 1 text with a : and then the value of the cell I am checking into another cell as a line item.

Some examples would be the following. From the chart above:
Let's take row 2.


B2 = Tony Smith E2 = $70.00 F2 = $0.00 G2 = $95.00 H2 = $0.00 | X2 = $165.00 | AE2 = (See Below)

1st the code would look at B2 and see that there was a value and print that to AE2 & char(10) &
Tony Smith

Next, the code would look at E2 and see that there was a value greater than 0 and then print E1 with a colon ":" and E2 to AE2 & char(10) &
Tony Smith
Travel: $70.00

Next, the code would look at F2 and see that there is not a value greater than 0 and skip it and go onto G2. It would see that G2 has a value greater than 0 and then print G1 with a colon ":" and G2 to AE2 & char(10) &
Tony Smith
Travel: $70.00
PC Install: $95.00

It will go through and look at every cell in that row and perform that same function for all of them.(Currently cells E:Z) until AE looks like:

Tony Smith
Travel: $70.00
PC Install: $95.00
Total: $165.00

Thanks for any help

If I missed anything let me know.

I have created a bonus plan for my team. It has 3 factors that could reduce the value. If all 3 factors = 100%, they get 100% of bonus. If any factors are less than 100%, then their bonus is reduced by the % of the lowest factor to give them their payout. Example1: If any factors are 0%, bonus is 0%, Example 2:If the factors are 100%, 75%, and 50%, then payout would be at 50% (the lowest factor). Below are the parameters of the 3 factors. Factor A = 100%, 75%, 50%,0%Factor B = 100%, 75%, 0%Factor C = 100%, 50%I hope this is clear enough. Thanks in advance for your help inautomating this recurring process for me if possible!

Answer:Need Excel to return value based on multiple cells & values

Your text doesn't match your math."If any factors are less than 100%, then their bonus is reduced by the % of the lowest factor to give them their payout. ""reduced by the % of the lowest factor" means that:If any factors are 0%, bonus is "reduced by" 0%I assume you mean that the bonus is "reduced to" the percentage of the lowest factor. That is the only way a Factor of 0% would equal a bonus of 0%.Assuming that you meant "reduced to", let's go from there.You didn't supply any information related to the layout of your data, so it's hard to be specific with a solution.Assuming that the percentage for each Factor is stored in a cell, you should be able to use the MIN function to determine the Bonus amount.For example, let's say you start with this layout:
1 Max Bonus Factor A Factor B Factor C Actual Bonus
2 $1,000 100% 75% 100% =A2*MIN(B2:D2)
The formula in E2 should return $750, which is 75% of the Max Bonus.Is that what you were looking for?Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.message edited by DerbyDad03

Lets say those are 3 columns, A, B, and C. I would like to have a macro or script that will take what is in column B, which is also inside the text of column C, and change the text AMDRG.CCM to what is in column A(AMDRG.SA). So when i am done, the info in column C will look like this...
Column A and column B will always line up with eachother, but column C will not always line up right beside the cells associated with what the replacement text is.

OK... Here's something I have been looking at for a while and getting myself all in a tizz...!!!

I have 2 worksheets within 1 workbook - see attached example. The first contains unique references (ABx in Column A) with associated processes in Column B. Each cell may contain more than one process - comma seperated. The second sheet contains unique references (XYx in Column A) which map back to ABx references in Column B (again, each cell can contain multiple mapping references - comma seperated).

Ref - Process
AB1 - Create, Update
AB2 - Create, Read
AB3 - Delete, Update

Ref - Maps-to
XY1 - AB1, AB2
XY2 - AB1
XY3 - AB2

Now, what I am looking to do is within sheet 2 (containing the XY references mapped to AB references) is create a column which will display the corresponding processes without duplication.

Ref - Maps-to - Process
XY1 - AB1, AB2 - Create, Update, Read
*Note that AB1 and AB2 both contain Create which should only be returned once.

I have tried using =VLOOKUP(B2,'Reference Sheet'!A:B,2) but this only uses the first reference to return results and therefore using the above as an example the result would not include "Read".

Any takers? Hope someone can help...

Thanks in advance!

Hi. I'm building an employee schedule into Excel. I am using a seperate tab for each different areas of the business. In each tab I have a column that indicates if the shift is a "Custom Program". I would like to have a seperate tab that brings all "Custom Program" shifts together on one page, drawing from all the other tabs.

I know how to reference specific cells onto the new tab, and I know how to do conditional formatting within a tab to find and respond to a specific word, but that's not quite what I need.

-Is there a way to reference a particular value (every time the words "Custom Program" appear) from Sheet 1 and put it in Sheet 2?

-Once the "Custom Program" values are sent to Sheet 2, I need the rest of the data in those row to come with them. How do I do that?

I hope I've explained that somewhat clearly. Thanks for your help.

I have a sheet with 2 simple columns: Date and Price. I have imported the dates (##/##/####) and the prices ($###,###) by copy/pasting from the search results given to me by a niche database program I use. When the cells paste in, they all have the format "General".

When I try to format the "date" column into dates, it _does_ change the format as far as the cell is concerned, but the content of the cell doesn't adapt to the new format. For example, I have the date as 3/05/2001 and when I change it to a date format of MMM D, YYYY the content should change to March 5, 2001 but it doesn't. It is as if all the cells are forced to stay as text regardless of what the formatting is that I'm applying.

Same problem with the price column: if I change the format to include 2 decimal points, that format does apply to the cells, but the content of each cell remains without a decimal or anything following, as if the content is just text.

I have like 1000 rows in each column, and plan to do this analysis of the database's results frequently, so I'm hoping the answer isn't just to retype the data. There's got to be a way to copy/paste or export or something. Maybe I could copy/paste into notepad first to scrub out any formatting or locking from the niche database program?

Answer:Excel 2007 Cell Values Won't Take On Characteristics of Newly Applied Cell Format

Good news: Made some progress. In thinking that maybe each value had the textual single-quote forcing it to act like text, or maybe if I find/repaced all the dollar signs and commas that had been imported, I accidentally discovered that each and every value in my imported columns has a following space!

Bad news: Seems like Excel has a bug that thinks that if I say "Find=[singleSpace]" "Replace=[null]", then I should be given an error saying "Excel cannot find any data to replace". I think I'm doing the find/replace correctly because it worked on the dollar signs and commas.

Anybody know a workaround for the bug?

I've got Microsoft Excel 2003. I am working on organising tons of data (words, not numerical) that's given to me in a bunch of spreadsheets and I need to consolidate all of them into one. The original spreasheets are not organised very well, so a writing of a macro isn't an option. Copy and paste it is. However, there are some sections where I need to combine the information in multiple cells into one.

cell1: John
cell2: is the
cell 3: manager of the
cell4: company.

Now it'd be really nice if there was some sort of way to copy cell1-4 and paste it into cell 5: John is the manager of the company. Anyone know a way possible? It's taking me forever since I have to go into the fx, not just copy/paste the cell.... not to mention that there are some instances where I have to combine 10+ cells into 1.


Answer:Excel help... any way to consolidate values in multi cells into one?

This problem has been around for a long time. I know that on anything pre-2k3 it was a little more difficult as copy/paste, of course, doesn't work exactly as you need it to in this instance.

If the cells are right next to each other, you might be able to just merge all the cells together. You can't do this in 2k as it will erase all but the first cell.

The other thing you could probably play around with is the concatenate function (at least, I think that what it is). You'll have to google for exact formulas but I think it's something like con(cell1, cell2, etc). It's been a while since I tried that. Downside to this is if you have a bunch of cells in a lot of random postions, you'll end up doing a lot more formula writing than actual copying.

Or, could you export the excel document as a word file? Then you could take out all the spaces / tabs with the replace function. Take a little time, but it'd probably work.

Got a few questions which tie in to what i am doing so i'll try to explain as best i can.

I want to be able to have excel automatically arrange the order in which it displays the information based on the value or information in a cell. Eg i have a list of things i sell online and I track their performance using the spreadsheet were i have a sheet for every product type which are linked to a master snapshop sheet which has the prices, weight and other info about the items. The product name on this main sheet is hyperlinked to the sheet containing the product and in turn the data in that sheet is formulated back to the main snapshot the aim being as little data input as possible to calculate everything.
I would like to be able to have the snapshop mainsheet automatically put for example the best performing product at the top of the list. At the moment a have to select the cell and expand the data range but this is erratic as i don't think i do it properly. Sometimes it messes all the data up. I am not that good with excel so i am probably going to be told why don't you do this or that etc but that is ok if anyone has an idea.
Anyone able to help?
Apologies if its difficult to follow but i will give more info if requested.

I built a large macro a while back that I need to reduce because with the recent additions I have made, I got "Procedure too large" as an error upon execution. I've already condensed most of my coding to something more elegant (I keep learning new things every time). Now I'd like to reduce the following code :

Do Until ActiveCell.Column = LastCol + 1
If ActiveCell.Value = "resRespondent" Or ActiveCell.Value = "ResLastCallDate" Or ActiveCell.Value = "LastCallStartTime" Or ActiveCell.Value = "resCallCount" _ ''And it goes on like this for many more values
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select
LastCol = LastCol - 1
End If

This is actually a big chunk of code and I have many more of these chunks in my macro. The problem is always having to repeat "Or ActiveCell.Value = " before each test. Something along the following idea would be great:

If ActiveCell.Value = "this", "that", "or this", "or that" Then


Answer:VBA - Test cell for multiple values

You can use SELECT CASE instead of IF, which allows such multiple values when comparing the same variable to many constants:

SELECT CASE ActiveCell.Value
CASE "resRespondent", "ResLastCallDate", "LastCallStartTime", "resCallCount"
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select
LastCol = LastCol - 1
Which is functionally equivalent to your example. Try it, as I've not actually tested it.

Answer:Solved: Excel-Substitute values from a list of new values

Hi bongiojf, welcome to TSG.

You can do this with a vlookup formula, assuming that the old values are in the leftmost column and that they are sorted alphabetically.

On sheet 3, in column B (or any blank column) use this formula for the first cell and then copy it down the rest of the column:


Change the range $A$1:$B$3 to be the range of data you have on Sheet 1. The number 2 at the end of the formula indicates that the new values are in the second column from the left. If they are not, change the number accordingly. For example, if they are in column D, the value would be 4.

Once you have the new data in your blank column, you can copy the column and paste special/values over the existing data on sheet 3.

Hope that helps.

Hi, I am new here so please excuse any faux pax on my part. I was browsing the web and found a post here on how to delete rows in xls that did not contain a certain word in a specific column. Works great!

I need to specify about 12 different possible words that I want to retain, and delete all rows where the cell does not contain any of those 12 possible words. I tried an or and an elseif statement, but xls did not like it.

Can anyone point me to how to look for a list of words?

The posting for one value was:

Sub delete_rows()
Dim lastrow As Long
Dim row_index As Long
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
lastrow = ActiveSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row
For row_index = lastrow - 1 To 1 Step -1
If InStr(Cells(row_index, "B").Value,"SEOP")=0 then
Cells(row_index, "B").EntireRow.delete
End If
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Thank you!

Hello all,I am trying to find a way to have all selected values from a drop list (with multiple values selected) to also displayed/copied in a cell (say A25). This so later on you push a button and the values in cell A25 are copied with other values that were entered in other cells to a new row. So eventually the sheet will fill up with rows that display some manually entered values and a cell that contains a sting of text (made up from the values that were selected from the dropdown menue).The list contains names, that i want to be displayed in the A25 cell as text separated by a comma.

So, this one has me stumped and the Internets is not revelatory.

I am trying to create a decision analysis tool in Excel. It's a typical design: one structure for criteria, another for proposals, a third to enumerate the alternatives, and a fourth for scoring.

It's fine for simple decisions where all proposals are mutually exclusive. I'm trying to incorporate the concept of dependency and partial exclusivity, though.

So, for example, on my proposals sheet, I've created a simple exclusion list that looks a bit like so:

[Proposals Sheet]
C1 C2 C3
x1 incompatible with... y3
x2 incompatible with... y2
x3 incompatible with... y2

Where x1, x2, x3, y2, and y3 are all proposals being analyzed.

The alternatives are enumerated automatically using binary math, like so (just a sample extract):

[Alternatives Sheet]
x1 x2 x3 y1 y2 y3 | Alternative Code
0 0 0 0 0 0 | Do nothing
1 0 0 0 1 0 | x1, y2
0 1 1 0 1 0 | x2, x3, y2 ****
0 0 1 1 0 0 | x3, y1

The row with all those asterisks is mathematically considered an alternative but should not be considered due to the exclusion list--it includes both x2 and y2, which are incompatible.

I'm trying to find a worksheet formula that will check whether an incompatibility defined on the Proposa... Read more

The company names are in in the top row and the MV values follow in columns. same happens with the returns which is, as i said, function of the PI values, on a different sheet. So now i need to search for those portfolio companies one by one and then copy paste the MV values first and then repeat the whole process to get the return values from PI sheet, then multiply them together and find the total portfolio return. I have uploaded the file on zippyshare this file you will see 2004 portfolio where i have actually made the first "BH" portfolio by doing what iv mentioned, when ull scroll down ull see another portfolio "BM" where the companies are listed. Is there an easier way to search through the 300 companies to retain the required companies and their corresponding yearly values and filter out the rest? and same could be done for returns?THANKS a million in advance

I'm not if this is what you are looking, so let me know...In 2004 Portfolio!B2 you have a value of 6013.42 which I assume came from MV 2004-2005!KF2.This formula will return that value from MV 2004-2005 using the INDEX and MATCH functions.The first thing I did was turn MV 2004-2005 into a Named Range (MyData). I then used the following formula to return 6013.42 into 2004 Portfolio!B2The MATCH functions will return the row_num of the value in 2004 Portfolio!A2 and column_num of the value in 2004 Portfolio!B1 based on where they are found in MyData (MV 2004-2005).It will then use those row_num and column_num values in the INDEX function to return the value found at that intersection.=INDEX(MyData,MATCH(A2,'MV 2004-2005'!A:A,0),MATCH(B1,'MV 2004-2005'!1:1,0))Hope that helps!Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

Hello all. I have 2 spreadsheets which contain subscription information for 2 different products costing £21.58 and £5.96. I'm trying to merge this information so that if Mr A in spreadsheet 1 is shown as subscribing to Product B and the same person in spreadsheet 2 is shown as subscribing to Product C, an additional column shows in spreadsheet 1 so that it then appears as: Mr A - £21.58 - £5.96

If not, the columns would show Mr A - £21.58 - 0 (or blank) etc

Not an expert so I need allot of help. In a production schedule I have various models to make with X number of units per model in a day. Using VLOOKUP I have a time value (production time) column for each model multiplied by its number of units, so I know the time it takes to produce each individual model in a day. I now need to include a PST (Production Standard Time) column for each model so workers can know at what time they should finish each of the models in the daily schedule. During our work hours (7:00am - 5:06pm) I have 3 lunch/rest breaks one @ 9:20 am(lasts 19min), 12:30 pm(lasts 29min) and 3:00 pm(lasts 9min) so I need to add to the PST that specific lunch/rest time if a model is finished during any of the lunch/rest periods, so I?ll assure the PST is accurate. How can achieve this using one single formula, considering the 3 criteria?

Criteria #1: IF((A1+B1)>=timevalue("9:20 am") but <=timevalue("12:30 pm"), (A1+B1)+time(0,19,0), (A1+B1))
Criteria #2: IF((A1+B1)>=timevalue("12:30 pm") but <=timevalue("3:00 pm"), (A1+B1)+time(0,29,0), (A1+B1))
Criteria #3: IF((A1+B1)>=timevalue("3:00 pm"), (A1+B1)+time(0,9,0), (A1+B1))

Since the values will be adding up as the day goes, it can occur, that the value (A1+B1) falls directly into the second criteria (eg. 1:37 pm), I need then for it to add the 29 minutes plus the 19 of the first criteria, and so on and so forth. Thanks so much in advance.

Answer:Find multiple words/ values in excel and highlight them

Just for future reference, it would be easier for us to help you if you would post your complete macro, not just a small portion. When we want to test your code, we want to be able to Copy it directly into the VBA editor and run it. When you only post a section, we have to '"rebuild" it to get it to run. If you make us do too much work, we might get bored and walk away. ;-)As for your error, think about what g is. g is the object that gets set when the .Find method finds what it is searching for.As I explained in my previous post, your If statement is testing to see if g is Not Nothing. Only when g Is Not Nothing does it have properties such as .Row, .Column, .Value, etc.The code will only fall through to the Else section if g is Nothing and if g Is Nothing you can't reference its Row, you can't copy it, you can't do anything with it. After all, it's Nothing, and just like in real life, you can't do anything with Nothing. ;-)OK, so why was g set to Nothing? Because the current search string wasn't found. What is it that you are trying to copy? The unfound search string, right? So, don't try to copy g, copy the current search string which wasn't found.I'll be nice and tell you upfront that even if you try to copy your current search string, you are still going to get an error. Range(?A?) is not a valid destination Range. You have only referenced a Column without a Row. VBA will not like that.

I need an Excel Macro that will be able to scan the first column of a worksheet row by row for certain document numbers i.e. "09-005", "09-1052", "586463" and highlight them. There is a substantial list of these.
I managed to figure out that I need a range and how to highlight, but am getting stuck on how to find the multiple document number values.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance

I have frequently used an array formula like this to look up multiple records in a list in Excel:
It nicely retrieves all the rows where A10 is the value to be looked up.

However I have not had any success using the same type of formula with an OR statement:

I want to retrieve all the records in a list where the value is what is as in A10 OR A11.

Does anyone know how I can achieve this?

Hi There

I have run into an issue with excel that's a little beyond my amateur coding skills

I think this can be solved with some simple vbscript or nested excel formula

All i need to happen is to compare a list of names and one additional value to another list of names and add the missing value. Easier if i give an example of data

the columns are as follows

Column A Column B Column C Column D
Name Value Name Value
Bob, Test Full Bart, Test
Bill, Test Part Bob, Test
Ren, Test Non Bill, Test
Bart, Test Part Ren, Test

So in column A and B is the reference data, and you see Column C and D is where the data needs to be matched / copied to. The script / formula needs to in this case work its way down column C - look up the matching value in column A and then copy whats in column B next to the matching value to column D.

Example is with the above data it would first hit in column C - Bart, Test - it would then lookup cell A for Bart, Test - and copy whats in column B beside it which is "Part" to blank cell in column D

Then it would move on to Bob, Test in column C - it would then lookup cell A for Bob, Test - and copy whats in column B beside it which is "Full" to blank cell in column D

I have a massive list of 3800 names that gets emailed to in a jumbled order and may grow in cell numbers as well so i cant count on a simple A to Z sort to help out - with additional information that i need to marry up to my existing data. I need an easy ... Read more

Hi all,

This may be more complex than I think but I have searched hundreds of forum posts all over the place and while I've come close to finding a solution to this; nothing has quite described a way to do this...

Basically, I have a roster for staff (attached is a simple sample I've thrown together to show you what's on the rows / headers & sample contents...obviously the actual spreadsheet is much bigger and month-to-view on each sheet).

Let's assume the following:
- sheet 1 and sheet 2 have staff rosters on as per the example spreadsheet
- sheet 3 is where I want to display the search results
- the same name may/will be present on different dates and different shifts
- this is for me and not an 'end user' so it doesn't have to be in any way flash in its working or pretty!!!

I would like a search entry box on sheet 3 (let's say in cell A1).

I need the following results returned for EACH occurrence of the searched name (this is where it gets beyond me). These will be copied into sheet 3 let's say starting from cell A3 - I'll stick in a clearcontents on the range at the start of the sub as the results will be copied into an email and then can be cleared when I need a new search:

I have a Microsoft Excel 2003 file that contains two spread-sheets. In one, I have a list of clients and a column next to each client name that I want to display the amount of money made from that particular client. Then, on the second spread-sheet I have a list of all credit and debits relating to the various clients. So, we might have received $100.00 from a client (and that would be in the credit column next to the client name), and then we may have spent $50.00 on that client (and that would be in the debit column next to the client name). So, obviously, the total amount made from that client would reflect the credit minus the debit.

Anyway, what I need is for the cell on the first spread-sheet that says the total made for that client to look at the second spread-sheet, look for any row that has that client's name and then adds the credits and subtracts the debits, then leaving the total back on the first spread-sheet.

I hope that makes sense. I have attached a demonstration to help, and I have also done the formula for the first client to show you what outcome I am looking for (although the formula is not what I want because it doesn't automatically add all of the rows from the second spread-sheet that share that client name).

Anyway, I hope I've explained it well enough and if anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it!

I need help on this.
I have a minimum of 50 numbers in one cell. What I want is split those numbers into 50 different cells.

Ex: A1 would be 21364790461234585960485938475811293849388223344123

I need to split the numbers into multiple cells; 1 number in 1 cell.
So in A2 it should be 2
In A3 it should be 1
In A4 it should be 3
In A5 it should be 6
In A6 it should be 4
And so on....

Answer:Split numbers in one cell into multiple cells in excel

you could use the mid function

so assuming in cell A1

A2 = Mid(A1,1,1)
But you would need to type that in
a better way is to use the row number to get the start position and then you can copy
ROW(A2)-1 to get the start position - if in a2 will return row as 2 , -1 = 1
and can be copied down

A2 = Mid($A$1, ROW(A2)-1, 1)
and just copy to row 51

I have multiple sheets (12 months) in my workbook. I am on the sheet "February Earning 2010" (third page in my workbook) and I am in cell P8.I need a total amount to show in this cell for all of the previous earnings on the prior two sheets. So I need it to refer to cell C8 because that is where the contract number is located. Then I need it to look for the contract number on:"December Earnings 2009" and "January Earnings 2010". On each sheet, the contract numbers are listed in column C. The values to be added up is where are get really confused.The values could be in Q8, S8, U8, V8 or W8 of the row.Each time the contract number (in row C of each page) is found, I want to add the amounts in the cells (Q8, S8, U8, V8 or W8). What formula should I use for this?

Answer:Sum of values in various cells if criteria me

Hi,Two questions:1. Do you only add data from one row on the preceding worksheets - i.e. is there only one row with the required contract number (and it's amounts) or do you need to add up the results from several rows, each containing the required contract number.2. If you have to get data from columns Q, S, U, V or W, if the value required was in column S (say S8) are Q8, U8, V8 and W8 empty. If not how can you decide which column to use.Regards

I am working on a comparison macro that takes information from my system and compares it to information from a different system. The problem lies in the format the other system comes in. I have been able to clean it up as much as possible but i just can't figure out the last little step.

If I have 15 containers on a an order and I am missing all 15 I need 14 rows inserted and all the information copied from the first line entered into the other 14. I thought i had this down but what i didn't take into consideration was that there are times when i have an order for 1 and missing 1 if that is the case i don’t need anything done. And then there are times when i have a an order for 15 i have 7 and it gives the names of the containers so i need 8 lines entered and this time when the information is copied i don’t need the container names it has to be blank.

I am going to attach a spread sheet of what i am talking about. The first tab is what it looks like when it comes in and the second tab is what i need it to look like. I color coded it to make it somewhat easier to understand. The rows in red are the original data and the rows in yellow are the ones i need added. I have asked this on several different forums and have not received a response at all hopefully someone here can help me with this. if you need more information i will gladly provide.

Answer:I want to get excelt to show the values in cells in millions

You can do it with a formula, but it is not a very good option.I would advise using a Macro.Here is a formula that should give you what your looking for:This formula expects your number to be a regular dollar amount WITH decimal places, IE 1001.12and using zero zero, IE 1001.00 does not work because Excel will strip off the trailing zeros, so you end up with 1001=IF(LEN(A1)>=10,LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-9)&"Million",IF(OR(LEN(A1)=9,LEN(A1)=8,LEN(A1)=7),LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-6)&"Thousand",A1))If your numbers NEVER have decimal places, you can use this formula:=IF(LEN(A1)>=7,LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-6)&"Million",IF(or(LEN(A1)=6,len(a1)=5,len(a1)=4),LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-3)&"Thousand",))But I would really advise getting a Macro, there are several out on the web.MIKE

So I'm okay with "2000" sorting as 1/1/2000 - but I can't figure out a way to have a different underlying value from what it actually sorts on, other than the very tedious different custom formatting for different types of dates. Ideally: I'd want to have these columns - "Date (Sort)" and "Date (Display)"...I want to be able to hide the sort column, but still have "Date (Display)" sort based on the values in the sort column. if there's a way to conditionally format for how it's displayed based on whether i enter month/day or just year, but still have it treated as a date in mm/dd/yyyy format for sorting - that would be even better.
Is there a way to do this?

Good day all.

I am trying to add a value from a specific range of values to a target cell by simply clicking one of the specific range of cells, i.e.

C2- Bill
C3- Bob
C4- Jim
C5- Mike
C6- Steve

I want to Click one of these cells and have the value in that cell show up in Cell A1

So clicking on C2 would add the value Bill to A1, then if i click C6 it would change the value in A1 to Steve etc.

Answer:Click to add Values in a different Cell

Welcome to the forums zelle

I don't know much about Excel programming, but I'm pretty sure you'll have to use VBA programming to do what you are trying to achive. I'm sure there will be some source code for changing a value based on the active cell - so perhaps some googling will yield a result.

Good luck

Question: Update cell values

I have lot of data in col. A to I running into many rows in sheet2. Also it contains a list in Col.N as shown below:applemangomanmonkey etc.Now i want if sheet1 col.A contains mango then its row in Col. B, C, G, J and L's data should be updated whenever i made changes in sheet2 row containing mango where:sheet2 Col.B = Sheet1 Col.Bsheet2 Col.I = Sheet1 Col.Csheet2 Col.G = Sheet1 Col.Gsheet2 Col.F = Sheet1 Col.Lsheet2 Col.E = Sheet1 Col.JFor your information:1. In sheet1 the Figures of sheet2 Col.I, G, F and E is divided by number 100000 using macro (eg. if sheet2 F=1245000 then sheet1 Col.L will be 12.45)2. I have "Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)" macro in sheet1Can you provide a macro to accomplish what i want?

Answer:Update cell values

Just checking...Do you have your examples backwards?You said you want Sheet1 updated if Sheet 2 is changed, but then you have:sheet2 Col.B = Sheet1 Col.BWhich typically means that Sheet2 Col B will be set equal to Sheet1 Col B.Do you actually mean Sheet1 Col.B = Sheet2 Col.B after changes are made to Sheet2?

I'm trying to do a simple 2 column merge in an Excel file. The idea is to put both first and last names (currently in 2 separate columns) into one column. There is more data in the worksheet, address, telelphone etc - in other columns.

When the name columns are selected, then FORMAT CELLS, then ALIGNMENT, MERGE CELLS, it comes back with -

"The selection contains multiple data values. Merging into one cell will keep the upper-left most data only"

There's text only in all the cells in both columns.

When I click on OK - like yea, do it anyway - both first and last name columns are blank - and there is no merged column.

I have also tried to use the CONCATENATE function and it works great for 1 cell at a time, but does not do entire columns...

Is there another step I've missed in this ?

I am hoping that someone can help me with what may be a complex question.

I have a spreadsheet, similar to the demonstration file I have attached. In it, there are a range of columns. One set of columns (A - D), shows a list of numbers that are references to items in a store, and it also shows their location in the store, so it acts as a floor-plan. The next column (E) lists those items again to show the dollar amount that those items have produced in total sales (F).

So, what I'd like to do is to add a conditional formatting to show me the "cold" and "hot" spots on the floor-plan so I can see where sales are most concentrated. I would assume that this would be done with a colour scale (using the range of values in column F to work itself out)?

Either way, the figures in column F would change weekly, so the relevant cells in columns A - D would need to automatically change when they're matching cells in column E - F change.

I hope this makes sense, as it's difficult to explain, but any help that someone could provide would be greatly appreciated.

(Don 't be intimidated by the length of this post; the essence is simple; I'm just a bit talky; I think it gives a clearer picture )

Hi guys. This is my first time here. I've been searching for almost an entire year now for a solution to this, and found nothing. I found your forum. Thank you so much for all the help you've given to people. I hope one of you can find a solution for this one.

I work for a huge multinational company with a massive number of employees. One of my tasks is to maintain a database containing the training certificates the employees are awarded. Regularly (a few times a daily), I get requests from different departments asking if the so and so employee has been awarded something/anything. They always send me excel sheets containing employee numbers and I have to compare their sheet to the master sheet I maintain.

Now here's the tricky part: I have two columns only, one for the certificate number, and the other for the employee numbers (dummy file attached). I put all the employee numbers in one cell, separated by space. Is there a way I can search for a value inside a cell, instead of just simply matching cells? This can easily be done using the search function, but often I get huge numbers of employee numbers, and using Ctrl+F in such cases consumes a ridiculous amount of time.

My question is easier to understand if you open the file.
Thanks in advance.

Answer:I am having a problem with extracting values from one cell

Here's a 2 step process:With your long string in A1, use the Data...Text To Columns feature to split the string into separate cells. If you use a semicolon ; and the bar | as your delimiters, you should get something like this:
A B C etc.
1 [I=406 A=5546.55 D=20110520 etc.
Once you have that, you can use this formula to extract the numbers after the equal sign:=SUBSTITUTE(MID(A1,FIND("=",A1)+1,LEN(A1)),"]","")Obviously, you would need to drag this formula across to update it for each column.The MID function extracts everything after the equal sign and the SUBSTITUTE function eliminates the bracket at the end of the string if it exists.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

I can't seem to bust through this. I have a range of data, I would like to search through one column of data, and move the contents of the cells in one column to another column conditionally, if a third column's contents meets certain criteria. e.g.Description Happy Times Total Alert
AB+ HOGAN 400 4 1600
PG+ SAM 50 2 100
Lucite Counter 1500 1 1500

PG+ SALLY 50 1 50
PG Gunther 100 1 100
In the sample data above, if the cells in the 'Description' Column - (Column A say) do not start with AB or PG, or the word 'Total' then move the Contents (a formula) of column 'Total' ( Column D ) to Column 'Alert' ( Column E )As you can see in the sample data, there are multiple ranges, so the significant data is Non-Contiguous. The result would be:Description Happy Times Total Alert
AB+ HOGAN 400 4 1600
PG+ SAM 50 2 100
Lucite Counter 1500 1 1500

PG+ SALLY 50 1 50
PG Gunther 100 1 100
I *think* I should be using the OR function to determine AB, PG or Total, nested in an IF statement, as in my struggles at a formula below, but I dont know how to move the contents, which is a formula, or how to loop through the range... and then do it in VBA. =IF(OR(LEFT(A2,2)="AB",(LEFT(A2,2)="PG"),(LEFT(A2,5)="TOTAL")),"Leave_prod_total_in_DCOL","Move_value_in_Dcol_to_Ecol")(the text strings "Leave_prod...

Answer:Conditionally Move cell values with VBA

Let's start with an explanation of this:lastARow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).RowlastARow is just a variable name. It could be X or Fred or intRowLength or any other non-reserved word.Range("A" & Rows.Count) is equivalent to Range("A65536") in Excel versions earlier than 2007 and Range("A1048576") in 2007.Using Rows.Count makes the syntax compatible with all versions of Excel since it lets VBA determine how many rows are in the spreadsheet..End(xlUp).Row tells VBA to go to the end of the range and look up until it finds data in a cell in that column. When it finds data in a cell, it returns that Row number.That said, I'm slightly confused by your data table. Is there a reason that you don't have 200 in the Total column for this value:PG+ SAM 50I'll assume it's a oversight.OK, now back to what you are trying to do.I'm not sure why you want to mix VBA with formulas. I think you can do it without any VBA. I can reproduce your table above (with the addition of the 200 mentioned earlier) with these 2 formulas:In the Total column:=IF(OR(LEFT(A2,2)="AB",LEFT(A2,2)="PG",A2="Total"),B2*C2,"")In the Alert column:=IF(AND(LEFT(A2,2)<>"AB",LEFT(A2,2)<>"PG",A2<>"Total"),B2*C2,"")Does that get you what you want?

I am trying to figure out a formula for a specific cell that will:

Add all of the "1" values in a given range and multiply by 10
Add all of the "2" values in the same range and multiply by 9
... etc.... to add all the "10" values and multiply by 1 (or basically not multiply by anything)

Then add these new values together to come up with a final number.

Does anyone have some way to do this?

BTW, all of the "1", "2", etc... values are actually vlookup results. I don't know how that will mess up the formula.

I have an expense report in Excel, from the Extended totals column (G) for each expense I want to insert a column (H) that has an assignment Letter (A through E). The Next 5 Columns (I - M) are marked A through E as they relate to the different cost centers. How do I create a formula that lets me quickly code each line in Column G (My totals per line) by just inserting the letter A or B or C or D or E into the corresponding line in Column H and that total automatically copies over to the correct Column

Answer:Copy Values to a specific cell

In I1:M1 enter your Cost Center letters A - EAssuming your first Extended Total is in G2, enter this formula in I2 (adjust as required)=IF($H2=I$1,$G2,"")Drag this over to M2 and then drag I2:M2 down as far as you need.The key is to ensure you use the dollar signs exactly as shown.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

I have combobox (active control) with list range, if I select a value from that list, I want to go to a cell in a column with that exact value. (Match the value selected from combobox)This code works, but only with the value "costs". I want to replace the static value "costs" which I put in, with a selection from the combobox.Private Sub combobox1_Change()Cells.Find(what:="Cost", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn _ :=xlValues, Lookat:=xlWhole, Searchorder:=xlByRows, Searchdirection:= _ xlNext, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate End SubThanks

Answer:I want to use the values selected in combobox to go to cell

The reason "Cost" is only being picked up is because you have What:="Cost"What i would do is replace the "Cost" with a variable which picks up the value from your comboboxLike this Dim FindVal
FindVal = Combobox1.Value
Cells.Find(what:=FindVal, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn _
:=xlValues, Lookat:=xlWhole, Searchorder:=xlByRows, Searchdirection:= _
xlNext, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

Now when you change the combox value it will search for that value in your worksheet.

I have the attached workbook where I want to count the number if instances of IEAC(CPI) from one row when the value of corresponding cell on another row is between 0 and 10%.

Range to count "IEAC(CPI)" from would be D2 to CA2 (default in my original workbook), based on the percentage in the range D1 to CA1. In cell C5 I would like the number of instances of IEAC(CPI) when the values of D1 to CA1 is between 0 and 0,1, in cell D5 I would like the same only for when D1 to CA1 is between 0,1 and 0,2.

Please, can somebody advise on how to write the function, or better yet, the macro?
