Find a Item & Copy the Data

Can someone please help me?

I've got a huge SAP generated Parts List from overseas which I need to find 
a unique number in column A. (Sheet1)
There are 10 columns and in excess of 55,000 rows
This SAP Text number is comprised of 18 fixed digits (eg: 
However the number itself is variable with leading zero's (eg: 
000000000063060003), and anything in between if you follow my drift.
My problem is I need to verify each customer's price and  purchase cost from 
this data sheet.
I've managed to automate most of the process but I can't return the values I 
need to verify the data using the VBA find function.

I enter the some basic data via a user form which is copied into a 
spreadsheet (Sheet2)
This includes the required item number, minus the leading zero's.
I then want to use this entered number as the trail for finding the number 
in the Sap List and copying the required data back into sheet2 and so 
creating a filtered list for easy validation.
This is all done manually at the moment.
Am I asking too much?

You need to use find with the option lookat:=xlpart.  Since the number
may be in the middle of a number you have to strip off the leading
zeroes and check that the number matches like the code below.  If you
have a number with leading zeroes it may be a string so you need to use
the VAL function to remove the leading zeroes.  Yo also have to use
FindNext becuae the 1st occurance of the number found may not be the one
you are looking for.

FindNum = "0000063060003"
FindNumNoLeading = val(FinNum)

Found = false
set c = columns("A").find(what:=FindNumNoLeading, _
if not c is nothing then
FirstAddr = c.address
'remove leading zeroes from found number and compare
if Val(c) = FindNumNoLeading then
Found = True
exit Do
end if
set c = columns("A").findnext(after:=c)
loop while not c is nothing and c.address <> FirstAddr
end if

storing data from checkboxes
I am creating an access database and am not sure how to handle the following data. I am entering data from an intake form.

I have not yet had to create a check box, but from what I surmise this is something that is created on the Form that will be used for data entry and not in the table formatting the actual field if that makes sense. Are check boxes appropriate in thi...

Copy an Drag cell Formula Problem
I am suddenly experiencing a problem when I try to copy and drag a formula across a number of cells. For example, I have two different data series in columns A and B and I want the product of the two in column C. Thus, in cell C1 I put “=A1*B1.” I then highlight C1 and drag the formula down the C column. My expected result would be “=A2*B2” in C2, “=A3*B3” in C3, etc. But what is happening is that the results for “A1*B1” is appearing in every cell of column C. However, when I highlight C4, for example, the formula appears as “=A4*B4” but the product is the same as that found in C1 ...

Excel file goes from 12 to 38 MB after "Get External Data"
Hi In an excel spreadsheet, there are three worksheets that are populated with data in perhaps 20 columns and up to 3000 rows, (along with several other worksheets in the same spreadsheet) The spreadsheet is 12 MB with the hard-coded (hand keyed) data sitting in each of these three worksheets. We decided that we wanted to import the data to these pages from SQL Server rather than maintain it manually, so we wrote a macro that clears the three worksheets and then executes the "Get External Data" function for each of the three worksheets.

How do I import fractions without data being converted to dates?

Charts generated by Data Analysis/Regression Add-in

Protecting excel sheet for data input
Dear All: I am using Excel for inputting data as part of a larger application. Each worksheet roughly corresponds to a table for user input. Each table has a predefined number of columns, the rest of the columns in the worksheet are not being used and can be hidden from the user. My concern is about the data area of the worksheet, which I am not protecting in any way because I want the user to be able to modify the data at will. During this process, the user may, for example, accidentally delete a useful table column. So I am looking for a way to at least prevent column deletion while allowin...
