In cell j, I have formula =IF(SUMPRODUCT(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("VLXP",K2:AB2))+0)>=1,"Yes","No") that returns yes or no if VLXP is contained in any cell K2 through AB2 and it works correctly. What I would really like to do is then put into cell j the entire matching cell content or if not found return n/a. Is there a way to accomplish this maybe with VBA?

I'm working on a spreadsheet at the moment which displays a range of cells all containing values referenced from another spreadsheet (within the same workbook). This system works fine.

Every day, the original worksheet is updated. So, it has fields already arranged up until the end of the year. A row for every date. Now, needless to say, rows for dates in the future contain no values, and so when the spreadsheet I am working on now references those cells, it displays "$0.00" (which is correct, given I am dealing with financial figures).

Now, all of that works as expected, however, on the spreadsheet I am working on, all of those figures are displayed in a line graph. This line graph, at todays date, shows an enormous drop given that the fields for the rest of the year all show a zero balance.

What I need to do, is to get the remainder of those fields (every field that says "$0.00") to not display anything at all. So, if the value is $0.00, it would not display a value at all, and therefore not show anything on the graph.

Can someone tell me how I can achieve this? I'm sure it can be done with an "if" statement, but I'm not sure how to structure it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Using Excel 2003 in Windows XP

I would like to use the contents of one cell as the destination location for copying data.
For example
I have 2 worksheets 1) Results and 2) info
in info
A1 = 'ABC'
C1 = 'Results!O54' < this is calculated based on other data in sheet.

Using a macro, I'd like to copy contents of A1 to cell location 'Results!O54' more specifically to where ever C1 points... C1 will change based on other data in info sheet.

The macro record for action looks like this (but I would like the 'O54' to be based on contents of C1 which changes)

There is more to it then that but I think this is where I am stumped.

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?

A: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'm attempting to write my first macro for an Excel 2003 workbook. I'm not completely code illiterate (I've got moderate skills with AutoLISP), but I'm new to VBA and am not yet an Excel power user, so please be gentle.

The macro I want to write will:
check that the selected cell's content is underlined before proceeding
copy the content of the currently selected cell into an external plain text .log file
.log file lines should be: year/month/day - time - username - cell contents
.log file names will probably need to be generated
clear the cell's content and formatting (particularly underline and text/background color)
Here's what I have so far:
Sub Unpost()
If Selection.Font.Underline = True
Then Selection.ClearFormats And Selection.Clearcontents
If MsgBox("The selected cell is not underlined...are you sure?", vbOkCancel) = vbOk
Then Selection.ClearFormats And Selection.Clearcontents
Else Exit Sub
End If
End If
End Sub
If I've written it correctly, it should currently do everything except log the cell contents. This, from what I've seen, is going to be the trickier part. I intend to use this macro 50+ times per weekday, so at some point the .log files will get too long to be useful, so I assume it will need to automatically create new logs (perhaps "year-month.log").

I cant seem work out a solution for what I'm trying to do. I have an Excel workbook that has multiple sheets. On sheet 1 i want the data from cell "G3" to be copied onto sheet 2. But i want the location on sheet 2 to be based on whatever was entered into cell "D3" on sheet 1.

For example: Sheet 1, cell D3 I have the name John, in cell G3 i have 68. I want "68" to be pasted in sheet 2 in cell B26.

But if the name in Sheet 1 cell D3 is Suzie, then I want G3 to be pasted in Sheet 2 in cell D26. So I would need to identify the paste location for each person.

I want the data to paste to the next cell so that the next entry can be pasted below the last entry for that person (for John the first entry would go into cell B26, then the next entry would go into cell B27 and so on).

But i want it to be a specific range, i dont want data to be pasted past 20 cells (cell B45). If possible a message box could be created to let the user know that the max is reached.

I would appreciate anyone's help with this as i have been struggling for awhile to try to get this. Thank you

With the workbook open press ALT + F11 to bring up the Visual Basic Editor. Once the VB editor opens, click INSERT --> MODULE and paste the code below into the blank module. Close the VB editor and select the first cell in column A containing your data you want to copy down. Click TOOLS --> MACRO --> MACROS and select the macro from the list and run it. This macro will copy all your data except for the last value in column A because without actually seeing your workbook, I have no way knowing which line to stop at. Therefore, the code will end when it reaches the last value in column A.

I have an Excel 2010 workbook comprising a simple organization membership list, consisting of names, addresses, etc., for nearly 2,000 members, grouped into 5 chapters' sheets, in a single Excel 2010 file. Every time I sit down to enter updates for any member, or add new members, etc., I always start by saving my most recent version of the workbook with the date I last updated it in the filename, and then when I finish my updates for the day, I save the current day's updated workbook with the current day's date in the filename, etc. So after a while, I've got quite a stack of versions of the same workbook, albeit with slightly different data in some of the cells, from version to version.

Near the end of the year, it'd be neat to be able to compare the beginning and end of year versions, cell by cell, to see what changed.

Ideally, I'd like to sort of "subtract" one workbook from the other, cell by cell, and display something in the results that shows cells that differ btwn workbooks and cells that don't.

Obviously, I could just print the two versions, and plow through them both, side by side. But they're nearly 2,000 rows deep, all things considered, and with all the data we compile for each member, each row goes up to column AT! That's a lotta data to compare visually cell by cell.

Is anything like what I'd like to do possible?

Is there a way to copy a col of formula's/math cells to a new col without excel modifying the coordinates?

Scenario: 150 cells of diff equations "located from a1 thru a150" you wish to move to d1 thru d150.

Problem: Excel modifies the coordinates of each pasted formula rendering garbage.

Individual f2, highlite,copy and then paste takes too much time if there are thousands of formulas to move.

A:Copy cell to cell without excel modifying

Use absolute instead of relative references, ie:



EDIT: better explanation. You have 5 in A1, and the formula =A1 in B1. If you copy B1 to C1, C1 will read =B1. But if you make B1 =$A$1 and then copy it to C1, it'll hold.

I have two cells, Cell "A" and cell "B", that have a formula in each. Cell "A" has a value that is correct and Cell "B" has a value that is correct. I now have a third cell (cell "C") with a formula that takes the values of cell "A" and cell "B" and multiplies them. The value of the product is wrong in cell "C" as compared to a value performed by a calculator. Cell "C" reports 51,550.64 whereas the calculator reports 51,540. What is the problem.


A:Excel cell to cell multiply problem

I'm willing to bet that the number you are entering into the calculator are rounded off while the number that Excel is using is not truly rounded off. Even though Excel may display a certain number in a cell due to its format, it is probably using the true value of the number which probably includes several decimal places. What numbers are showing in cells A and B? How are cells A and B formatted? What happens if you increase the number of decimal points in these cells...do the cell number become larger? If so, then Excel is likely using the true values of the cells instead of the display values in its calculations. Provide details of how you are obtaining your cell values so we can confirm that this is happening.

Try the following

TOOLS --> OPTIONS and choose the Calculation Tab. Put a check in the box marked "Precision as Displayed."
NOTE: This will affect all other calculations on the workbook causing changes to other values on the sheet!

I am trying to create a macro that will select the text contents of a cell andcopy it into another cell. I know recording a macro isn't the best way to go,but I'm still pretty fresh in coding VBA.

When I record a macro on the following set of data (shown below) I cancreate a row above the first row containing "CASH" and copy the word"CASH" into the cell above it.

(sample data)

CASH 83 521.01
TRES.CARD 11 54.11
HELP 0 0

(recorded macro)

ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Range("A1").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "CASH"
ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0).Range("A1").Select

If I run the macro on the row containing "Tres.Card" it willreplace &#8220;TRES.CARD&#8221; with "CASH".

Essentially I am trying the make two rows for each of the existing rows. Iwould add "#" to the label in column 1 on the first line and add"$" to that label on the second line. The first line would thencontain the data from column B and the second line would contain the data fromcolumn C. So that the end result would look like:

(Example of end result)

CASH # 83
CASH $ 521.01
TRES.CARD $ 54.11
HELP # 0
HELP $ 0

I have a large excel worksheet, divided into 4 rows (different data fields). Hard luck, in one of the rows, some cells contain two products or more instead of one (ex: "ZB3054066ZB3601207ZB3601206"). They are separated either by a blank or by a (double bar).
I need that each time I detect a cell in that particular row that contains multiple products, I create new rows so that each row contains only one product in the column "component parts" and that the original data in the other columns remains unchanged.
I don't know anything about excel macro, but here is the approximate code I created to do this task :
If current row cell "component parts" contains a separator (either or blank),
create "number of separators" new rows
copy every field except the "component parts" one
while( cell "component parts" contains a separator)
cut the part of the "component parts" cell before the first separator (including the separator)
paste it into the next row "component part" cell
delete the separator in the new "component parts" cell

If anyone knows how I could do this in an excel macro...

Very limited experience with Excel...have a multi page workbook but can't figure out how to auto format existing text to fit in cells so there is no space either on top or bottom of the cell.

Only way I can get this so far is to manually move the bottom line of the text box up to the bottom of the actual text in box. But this causes the print out to overlap sometimes of the text lines in print view.

Is there a way to 'auto-format' individual cells to fit the text in the cell without leaving alot of space above or below the lines, or top/bottom lines, of the cell.

A:Having problem setting cell height to fit text in cell

When you are in the cell that you want to align with the top, Right Click & select Format Cells & when that opens Click on the Alignment Tab & then you will see Horizontal & Vertical, click on the Vertical drop down arrow & select Top. That will align the text to the top of the cell & eliminate that space.

When you move to the next cell to insert the Dollar amount it will be lined up with the bottom of the text in the previous cell, which is what you want.

Hi Lenovo experts - I am having a strange issue with my new X270 laptop. I have been using it for over 3 weeks now.

With very light usage (just outlook and office apps) and brightness set to 25%, I can barely get 2h-2.5h of battery life. Is this normal? Per the PSREF, 3+3 cell should give me ~13h of battery life.  Anything else I can check? I did a 'battery report' and I see on average 45 Wh of charging capacity when active. However 'Battery life estimates' show between 2h-3h at full charge. 'Current estimate of battery life based on all observed drains since OS install' is showing 3:50.  Do I have a defective battery?

When I select a Vostro account I want the letter V to populate in another cell & when I select a Nostro account I want N to populate. Hence I used a formula in F3 LEFT(E3,1) to retrieve the first digit of the account number (0 or 7). And in cell G3 I used formula =VLOOKUP(F3,NV,2,FALSE) to read the contents of F3 and select either N or V. However my problem is that the Vlookup formula is not reading the 0/7 value in cell F3, its reading the text of the formula...
Please assist.

A:Solved: Cell content reflects formula not value

Welcome to the board.

Either I'm missing something or that's weird.

What do you get for this (which cuts out the "bridging" formula)?:


It works for me, with the "*1" seeming to somehow force the number "nature" of the first left character.

I have been using Ctrl+Home to navigate to cell A1. I then type in the word Home in the GoTo or reference box (the box to the left of the formula bar, ... I may not be calling it by its proper name). I then navigate to some distant, faraway place on the spreadsheet, and then when I need to return to A1 I click the drop down box, select "Home", and in an instant I'm there at A1. All it fine, ... that is until I run a macro. Once I run a macro all such references previously made are wiped out. What can I do to fix this? To list all of the code would be a lot of clutter, but I will if necessary.

You'all are wonderful. Thank you for your looking.

A:Cell GoTo or Cell Reference Box

If you include Range("A1").Select in your code you will be taken to the 'Home' cell

Have you tried recording a macro that does that? You will then see (when you open the vba editor) what it does and you can always edit your code to your needs.

I recently tried to replace my 6 cell laptop battery with a 9 cell. With the 9 cell install it will not charge and laptop will not operate on AC power either. Please help

Someone needs to get a new battery for a very old laptop they have. The battery doesn't work so they have to have it plugged all the time otherwise it wouldn't work. Laptop is 15.6 and sort of heavy but the thing is they never take the laptop outside the house. It will mainly be used on one floor in the house.

100% of the time the laptop is used in the kitchen area where there is a table where its connected using a charger to the wall. Thus if the person had a working battery, they could carry it around the house even though the laptop will stay in one place usually. However because right now the battery doesn't work, it does but it goes out very fast less than 1 minute, they need a new battery.

Is it better to get a 6 cell or 9 cell battery? The laptop will be used at home 100 percent. The thing is this person said if 9 cell last longer, get it. However, im sure 9 cell batteries make the laptop much heavier and has that back part sticking out right? I know this isn't a big deal if you going to stay inside but wouldn't it be a problem/annoyance if you have the laptop on yourself when on the sofa? Does the 9 cell would be really heavy on an already heavy 15.6' laptop?

Also 6 cell batteries last for around 2 hours i believe. How many hours does a 9 cell last for usually?

The thing is majority of the time the laptop will be plugged in but its very annoying at the moment as the laptop has to be connected 100 percent of the time since the battery is no good at... Read more

A:6 Cell Vs 9 Cell Battery for Laptop?

It's a piece of hardware so you're in the right area.

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 that has a 48WattHour battery. A 9-cell battery would give longer working time when on battery-only so if it is offered and the price is affordable I'd get it.

As for physically working, it may lift the back edge of the Notebook higher but that's not a problem, usually have rubber feet on them. I find that type of rise is actually easier for typing as most Desktop keyboards have feet to raise the back edge, fingers seem to 'flow' better.

A:HP 6-cell 62 WHr or HP Long Life 6-cell 55 WHr

Hi, No need to check, as I said before 62WHr will last longer 55Whr between charge given doing SAME workload. That is a very basic Physics lesson. Regards.

When the ink color and background color are the same, I only see the formula when I mouse over or click on a cell. C3 has yellow for text & background. Line 3 is also Frozen.
Is there a way to easily see my totals without changing the text color? That's all I'm concerned about other people seeing.
Even a mathematical genius can't figure out the total without knowing the hidden amounts.
I played around and googled this for 6 hours and I'm still no closer to working it out.
Thanks for help you can give me.

I can't for the life of me remember how to put two formulas in one cell.

At the moment I have:

Cell 1 which contains a total:
Result is 5,245

Cell 2 shows the total as a percentage:
Result is 9.16%

How do I put this into one cell to produce:
Total = 5,245 - 9.16%

Thank you in advance.

Is it possible to change the cell location coordinates eg FV|178, AR|23 etc.
I need to have numerals only in the cell location coordinates eg 67|43, 139|88 etc.
At the moment I am using a seperate set of numbered axis to identify cell locations which gets quite confusing as I have to keep scrolling to them to see where I am.
Hope this makes sense!!
