This may actually be a find-replace question. At any rate, I am not sur how to formulate this. What I am trying to do is check a specific column which contain numbers and check to see if any numbers contain characters (that ar not numbers) preceding the number. If a number DOES contain a characte that is not a number preceding that number, then move that characte behind the last character in another column. For example, I want to check all the numbers in column D, if a numbe in that column contains any character that is not a number - such a *86, then the asterisk would be moved to column C...

I have two fields on a form: one a "check box" and another a "combo list" If the check box = Yes, then I want the field for the combo list to require data. I can make it go the field that I want the date inserted, but I cannot seem to figure out how to make it mandatory for the user to insert data from the drop down list if the check box = yes. Use the Exit event of the ComboBox and Cancel = True If Len(Me.ComboBox & "") = 0 Sheryl wrote: >I have two fields on a form: one a "check box" and another a "combo list" > >If t...

Hello, I am trying to get a cell with date information in it to enable a formula of some other cells to happen, in other words when a date is not entered that particular cell is empty therefore the corresponding formula cells are not enabled. Here is a function that works but only when the referanced cell has either "Pending/Issued/Declined" =IF(E4="Issued",F4*H4,IF(E4="Declined",F4*0,IF(E4="Pending",0))). I would like this function to result correctly with a date entry in the referanced cell rather then wording. How can I do this? -- Thank y...

I use Excel 2000 9.0 as a pruchasing program. I would like for Excel to recognize which vendor I enter into column c, and then automatically enter who my sales rep is into column J. I also would use this same method to recognize item descriptions in column D and automatically input the respective part numbers. Thanks in advance, The feature you are looking for is called VLOOKUP........ Your formula will look something like this......... =VLOOKUP(C1,LISTOFREPS,2,FALSE) Check the Help section, and post back if you run into problems. Vaya cno Dios, Chuck, CABGx3 "atlcasework" wr...

Morning all. I'm looking to set up an automatic password sheet protection tool and there are only specific elements that I need protected on the worksheets in my workbooks. As such, my goal is to look for a value, in a single column, and if the value exists in one cell, protect that row. All other rows will remain unprotected. As I think about this, it seems to me that I'd need a for loop to iterate through the rows of that one column, and then use an IF statement to look for a value. Part of my struggle is that not all worksheets start at the same start row. N...

Hi – I have been trying to work out a macro. I am looking for a macro that will check 2 things....then do something. The first is if a particular cell contains a given value. Lets say Sheets("sheet1").Range("D3") should equal "Year 1" if true. Next is if a range of cell values in are blank, Sheets("Sheet1").Range("D6:G48") should be blank. If both these are true then I want the macro to copy a range of cells from Sheets("Sheet2").Range("AR5:AR47") to Sheets("Sheet1").Range("D6:D48"). If false then...

I need the formula to recognize that what it is looking at is a date not a calculation. For example: Column A is a date in the form of 1/31/2004 Column B is the If/Then function in the form of If A1>=1/31/2004, then Y value if false N. The computer is calculating 1/31/2004 and not recognizing that it is a date. How can I make the If/Then formula recognize column A as a date and not a calculation?

Here's what I have: A1 = .75 (that's point seventy-five, less than zero) B1 = the argument =IF(A1<0,A1,0) The result I get in B1 is 0 when it should get the number in A! which is .75 (point seventy-five). If A1 is 3 (or any number greater than zero), I get whatever the number in A1 is, but I should get 0.. If I change the argument to >0 (greater than zero), it always gives me the number in A1, even when it's less than 0. Yes, I triple-checked all the numbers I put in A1 to make sure there were no misplaced decimals. Can someine tell me where I'm going wrong? Thanks...
