Free Microsoft Excel 2013 Quick Reference

Hi all,

I have a list of alphanumeric IDs and I would like to use a formula to inform me whether there is the same ID later on in the column or not. I know you can find unique or duplicate entries using conditional formatting to highlight the cells in Excel 2010 but I would like it to be in a formula and not highlighting.

I have attempted to come up with this in cell B1: {=IF(MATCH(A1,A:A,0), "Duplicate", "Unique")}, but, of course, all the cells in column B will compute to be "Duplicate" since it will also consider itself (i.e. cell A1).

Could someone suggest a better method or different formula to do this?

Many thanks in advance for anyone who helps me.

In my scenario i need to find a cell value which is in another workbook (located in another machine).How Can i use FIND function in this scenario for finding the proper value or please guide me in proper way

thanks in regards

=IF(MAX(A21:H21)<=0,"NA",LARGE(A21:H21,COUNTIF(A21:H21,">0")))

should return the smallest positive value (or "NA") if there isn't one. The

logic is to count the number of positive values, and use that as an argument

to the LARGE function. --Bruce

Each cell may contain a positive value, or a zero.

I need a formula to find the "Minimum value that is greater than zero" in

columns 1,3,5,7,9,11,13 and 15.

=MIN(A1,C1,E1,G1,I1,K1,M1,O1) will always return the zero value while I

need the minimum value that is greater than zero.

If I use nested IF functions to exclude zeroes I run foul of the max of 7

allowed.

I would greatly appreciate any help and thank you in advance for any offered.

I checked the Access help and found it a little confusing - it says "For field and record validation rules, the expression can't contain user-defined functions, domain aggregate or aggregate functions, the Eval function, or CurrentUser method, or references to forms, queries, or tables. In addition, field validation rules can't contain references to other fields."

However I did a bit more reading and it seems like I could use dlookup for this. Is that the case?

include all the labels. It makes the pie chart look too cluttered. How can

I not include zero value or blank cell values from appearring in the labels.

When I go to "tools", "options", and "chart", the "plot empty cells as"

area is shaded grey and I can not select options.

I want to highlight all cells in a column based on their previous cell value.

For example....

In the column H, if h2<h1 or h3<h2 or h4<h3.....so on...they must be highlighted with red color indicating the lesser cell value than the previous one.

I can format only one cell based on above condition but unable to do this with all the cells in that column with the above condition.

Please help.

Thanks

I have a workbook with multiple worksheets that hold customer data. Each list is rather large, so i need a way to control data entry with a view to avoiding data duplication.

Is there a way (perhaps via VB scripting) that I can have Excel check an entered value in a cell in real time, and if the value already exists elsewhere in the workbook, a message is displayed?

Million thanks for any feedback.

The code below loops thru a specified range I12:I26 for a duplicate combobox value in each cell. When I enter the same combobox value in range I43:I54 it still finds a duplicate. I'm at a lost.

How do you modify the for each loop code so that if the cell.Value in column D was already "analyzed", then skip it.

Thank you for your help.

I want to know VBA code regarding findings multiple value in whole workbook at once. Suppose a workbook consist 12 sheet and every sheet has some value.In 13th sheet i put some new value and try to find this new value is existing in any old sheets? If yes display that value in the next cell in 13th sheets. For example:- i put 610432 in 13th sheet(Sheet1 in attachment) and run programme to find the value. So it should display the value 610432 in 2 column of 13th sheet(Sheet1) because it is existing in Sheet Jan.

I hope it will be clear. If not please let me know on the following mail

I am trying to figure out how to put a value and text in the same cell when the value in the cell is used as a variable for a formula in another cell.

For example: cell b3 has a value of 6 and cell c3 is multipying the value in b3 with the value in another cell. I would like to know how to add text to cell b3 and still have the value in that cell used in the formula in cell c3

Any help would be appretiated.

exists or zero if it does not exist in the specified range. I have got to

believe this is a fairly common need. Can anyone help me out with this.

I need help from you experts on this problem I'm having:

I've attached a sample workbook with the post.

I need a macro to go through the values in column A in the "reference" tab and check if the value already exist in column B in "master" sheet. If it does, then do nothing for that cell and continue on to the next cell, if it doesn't exist then add all three values for that row (column A, B and C) to the end of the table in "master" sheet and then go to the next cell. Go through all the values in column A in the "reference" tab.

Please help.

I have a program where the user selects a number in a cell based on a criteria. This number can be under a group (Baseball), and a sub group (Yankees). If a number, 2 (restricted by data validation), is selected for Baseball: Yankees, it puts Baseball in one column and Yankees in the next column to form a list that meets this criteria. If both Baseball and Yankees are in the same row, I don't want it to do anything. I run into trouble in my code if I have a list such as:

Basketball Yankees

Baseball Devil Rays

Basketball Cavaliers...

If I select the criteria 2 for Baseball Yankees, it does not add it to my list. That is because my code sees Basketball first, so it then searches for Yankees. Since it sees Yankees, it does nothing. I would like my code to say if there "Basketball" exists in column P, look in column Q in the same row where Basketball exists, and if Yankees exists in the column Q, do not move the values to columns P and Q.

If Target.Address = "$H$9" Then Application.EnableEvents = False If Target.Value = "2" Then Set findit = Columns("P:P").Find(What:="*") If findit Is Nothing Then Cells(7, "P").Value = Cells(9, "G") Cells(7, "Q").Value = Cells(8, "B") Else Set findit = Columns("P:P").Find(What:="Basketball") If findit Is Nothing Then Cells(Rows.Count, "P").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Value = Cells(9, "G") Cells(Rows.Count, "Q").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Value = Cells(8, "B") Else Set findit1 = Columns("Q:Q").Find(What:="Yankees") If findit1 Is Nothing Then Cells(Rows.Count, "P").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Value = Cells(9, "G") Cells(Rows.Count, "Q").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Value = Cells(8, "B") End If End If End IfIs there possibly a way to incorporate that into the .Find(What:= field?

Thanks ahead of time,

I have been using the following code to generate a new workbook based on cell value using a template workbook...

VB:Range) Dim wbNew As Workbook If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub On Error Resume Next If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:A10")) Is Nothing Then Set wbNew = Workbooks(Target.Text) If wbNew Is Nothing Then Workbooks.Open ThisWorkbook.Path & "" & "Template.xls" On Error Resume Next ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs ThisWorkbook.Path & "" & (Target.Text) ActiveWorkbook.Close SaveChanges:=True End If End SubIf you like these VB formatting tags please consider sponsoring the author in support of injured Royal Marines

This code work well for me, but there are three issues:

1) When I delete a cell, it tries to create a new workbook

2) When a workbook based on cell value already exists, and we try to create a new cell with the same value, it tries to overwrite the existing workbook ---> I want to make it so if it already exists it does not try to overwrite it

3) I cannot delete a row by right clicking the row and clicking delete, it freezes excel. I can only do it by selecting the row and going into Edit --> Delete.

I appreciate the help in fixing this.

Thanks!

So lets say that the column is F. I need commands in in cells A1-A8 to show the different values that are in the column. Further, lets say that the values that show up are 1200, 1400, 1600 and 2200 as the only values in the column (again, being listed multiple times a piece). What commands could I enter in the A1-A8 that would show those values in the first four cells and leave the rest either blank or with a #NUM! statement? Thanks and please, if this is not clear, let me knowand I will try again.

Order Order Type Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 OthrGroup 1

782187 SLS PRT EQP

782679 SLS BPR

783014 WWW EQP PRT EQP

783016 WWW EQP PRT EQP

See in the first line, the EQP does not exist in group 1-3 so it must add it

to the groups in the next available slot which is Group 2. However in the

other lines you will see that EQP exists in group1 and therefore should not

be added. There are three "othrGroups" as well. So basically, there were

two worksheets, I used one worksheet that has group1-3, then used vlookup to

get the values from the other worksheet per order number. THen I just need

to combine them but I am having troubles and it shouldn't be this difficult.

Any idea's?

What I want is: when I enter value = 3, and that value (3) already exists in

the column, it has to correct that automatically into 4, with or without a

warning.

Sometimes the row don't have values in it at all, if the value 2 is entered

then, it automatically has to change to 1.

In short: it has to change automatically in the first unused value closest

to 0...

Thanks for the help!!!

what I am looking for. Everyone else seems to want to find cells with

specific text in the comment and replace that text within the comments.

What I need is to find all cells with specific text in the comments,

then replace the cell values. "Find all cells with "xxx" in the

comments and change all of the cell values to "123". I'd do it one by

one but there are hundreds. None of my macros seem to work. Any

ideas?

Thanks.

Kind regards,

I'm just trying to write code that will find a cell value from one sheet to

another. On Sheet1, I want say cell "B11" to be what I'm looking for(what

ever value that is in cell "B11" is the value that I'm looking to find on

Sheet2). On Sheet2, I need it to search through say range "C1:C5001" and have

it select the first one it finds. How would I go about doing that?

Thanks
