I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Excel 2010 separating data from one column to multiple columns

should be able to use an array formula - so use control + shift + enter key and the formula gets { } brackets

Code:

=INDEX(Sheet1!$A$2:$A$14,SMALL(IF(Sheet1!$D$2:$D$14[COLOR="Red"]=1[/COLOR],ROW(Sheet1!$A$2:$A$14)-ROW(Sheet1!$A$2)+1),ROWS(F$4:F4)))
where you change the red =1
to =2, 3, 4 for different columns

does that work out

see attached

if it works we can extend the range and cleanup the errors

Hi all,

I am using the below formula (that I found on this forum) to calculate the age based on a DOB. I now want to create a formula for the next column to have either ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ if the age is above a certain value.

If this is possible, is it then possible if I have two ages in separate columns to generate a ‘Yes’ if either of the age’s are above the specified Value?

Formula for Age Calculation;
=DATEDIF($C24,NOW(),"y") & "y,"&DATEDIF($C24,NOW(),"ym") & "m,"& DATEDIF($C24,NOW(),"md") & "d"

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Many thanks.
 

A:Data in columns formula to generate a new column

try this

=IF (Cell you do the calculation in > age you want to test , "Yes" , "No" )
if you want to test two columns , then

=IF ( OR(column1 > age, column2 > age ), "Yes", "No")

can you load a dummy spreadsheet and we can check the above works OK

I have a large excel file (3k= rows) of name/addr info. I want to transpose the date so information appears in its own column for sorting, etc. The problem is the data is not consistant. (sometimes there is two address enteries, sometimes three. In another record there may be two phone numbers. So each company may have six or seven rows of info. The only consistancy is that the company name is in bold. I've tried to attach a sample file so you can see what my task is. I'm not real good with Excel, so treat me like a dumy; it's OK.

I have 3 first columns (from left) and I want to create a new column like the last one which named New Text.
As you see I want to create a column which duplicate the Text of every row for X times. And X is the frequency of repeated number in Number ID 2.

I'm using some software to export payment information into a CSV file. This file needs to be in the bank's specified SIF format which requires all the data to be in one column.

The limitation with my software is that the detail of each payment gets exported into it's own separate column. For instance, cells A1:A10 contain payment details to one individual, B1:B10 to another, and so on. I require the whole lot combining into Column A, running from A1:A65536 (it will never go this far down the spreadsheet, but you get the idea).

I've tinkered with some basic copy and delete macros but I'm unable to make the headway that I need to. I don't have the touch when it comes to programming .

Is there a way to have excel remove from column A, those numbers that appear in column B? It would require some way to compare, but I can't figure out if excel has this capability. If the columns were small, we could do this manually, but the data set is huge, with several thousand numbers.

I have data organised in paris of columns with differing amounts of data in each column pair.
I need to move all data to columns A&B:

- If there is data in columns C & D, move it to the foot of columns A&B.
- Then, if there is data in columns E & F, move it to the foot of columns A&B.
- Etc. til the end of the ActiveRange.

I've managed to do this using hard-coded column references, but it involves a lot of reptetition.
Presumably the code can be substantially compacted, and work to the end of the ActiveRange rather than to arbitrary end columns (in this case, cols AC and AD).

On the attached spreadsheet, I need a total count of baselined desktops (minus the ones that have been deleted)...my problem is how do I get it to look at one record, mark that that agent had been a baselined one, but is now deleted, so don't count it. I can't just remove the deleted ones, cause I want my customer to know which agents have disappeared. Take a look at the formula in B2 for a general idea. That formula doesn't work cause it just adds everything together. I need it to be smart enough to Total the Baselined Agents and then Subtract the agents that are baselined and deleted per field. Any questions let me know. Look at B2 to get an idea and see if I'm on the right track.

A:Move alot of Data from Columns Excel 2010 - too big to transpose

I'm sorry to say that this is pretty much impossible as far as I can tell because there simply isn't enough consistency in your layout. If all rows were there and in order it would be easy enough.
As they aren't, one would need to inspect the titles to put them in the right place, but your titles don't always match either. For example your second "Telephone" entry is actually titled "Clinic Mobile", which the computer justly sees as very different indeed.
I'll try to help if I can, but you'll need some point of consistency if you want computers to automate a process. If it helps, here's a copy of my spreadsheet that inspects the titles (on sheet 2). If there are only a few problematic titles it might be easier to correct them manually (or use search and replace).

A:Excel macro - change column data to multiple rows

I have your data mapping from A:N to P:S, with no headers. In case that's wrong, make sure your work's saved before trying this.

Sub test()
LastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For i = 1 To LastRow

For Each Cell In Range("C" & i & ":N" & i)
If Cell <> "" Then
DestRow = WorksheetFunction.CountA(Columns(16)) + 1
Cells(DestRow, 16).Resize(, 2).Value = Cells(i, 1).Resize(, 2).Value
Cells(DestRow, 18) = Cell.Column - 2
Cells(DestRow, 19) = Cell.Value
End If
Next Cell

Next i

Hi, I need a macro to use in Excel 2003 that will select all data in a column except the header row. At the moment i am using the following command which works well in most cases

Range("A1").Select
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select

The catch to this is that if the column contains only one row of or no data then the command selects the entire column! Eek, can anybody please help me to fix this?
 

A:Solved: Excel macro to select data in a column with a header row

Dim lastRow as long
LastRow = worksheetfuntion.Max(2, Range("A" & rows.count).end(Exlup).Row

The variable will contain the last filled row in column A, the Max function will make sure that it will at least be row 2 just in case the column is empty

Then all you need is Range("A2:A" & lastRow).Select
Or if you need more columns then Range("A2:H" & lastRow).select

A newbie question. I haven't used Excel since 2004 and now I'm trying to reacquaint myself with the basic formulas and functions. How can I design a spreadsheet to make a formula carry over to a new line when a new row is entered. For example if I have C3 with the formula =Sum(A1+B1), and someone wants to add a A2 and B2, how can I make it so that C3 performs similarly to A3, as in how can I make the formula copy itself to every newly entered row without having to copy and paste the formula along the entire column. I want to use the If function, but copying the formula down the column displays the "false" value even if there are no entries. Thanks.

A:Excel column forumula question

It might be pretty tough to get Excel to auto enter a formula in a row that has just been added.
However, you can test for a blank or null by using the IF and ISBLANK function.

Something like

=if(isblank(some condition), what to do if true, what to do if false)

For Excell 2000 -- In a column e.g A1 to A5 - how can I get cell A6 to return the last entry in the column? Logically the formula would check the cells starting w/ A5 for "Emptyness" and would keep going sequentialy until it got to a cell that had either a text or numerical entry.

cat
dog
3
Bingo

Bingo -- cell A6 would return last entry -- "Bingo"

or

cat
dog
3
3 -- cell A6 would return last entry or "3"

Column lengh can be any number of cells long but each cell is filled sequentialy - A1 then A2 then A3 etc

My only success (limted) is w/ nested "IF/THEN" statments and then I was limted to a column of 5 entries --

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Hi

I'm doing a list of words and their meanings in MS Excel 2003. The columns look like this:

| W | D | 2 | S |
| b | 1 | 1 | 1 |
| c | 2 | 2 | 2 |
| a | 3 | 3 | 3 |

What i'm planning to do is to arrange the Word column [W] alphabetically but in such a way as the entries in the other 3 columns (Def 1[D], Def 2 [2], Source ) will follow the word next to them. Like this:

| W | D | 2 | S |
| a | 3 | 3 | 3 |
| b | 1 | 1 | 1 |
| c | 2 | 2 | 2 |

What i'm afraid of is that if i arrange the Word column, the other columns wouldn't follow

| W | D | 2 | S |
| a | 1 | 1 | 1 |
| b | 2 | 2 | 2 |
| c | 3 | 3 | 3 |

Note: sorry if this question has been asked. tried searching the forum but was unable to find a similar question to mine
 

A:Simple Question on arranging columns in MS Excel

Hi fudgeydodgey, and welcome to TSG.

First make a backup copy of the Excel file as it is.

Select all four columns and then choose the Data Sort menu option. If the first row is column headers, then activate the radio button for that in the sort dialog box. Then choose to sort on the column that has the words. The data in the same row as the given word will follow along in the sort.

Note: If you only select one column and then try to sort, Excel will usually pop up a warning that data has been found in adjacent columns that will not follow the information in the selected column. You will then have the option to have Excel automatically expand the selection to include all adjacent columns with data.

Hey everyone, I have data in the form of several rows, each of which has several words separated by ": " (colon + space) I would like each word separated in its own column, and have therefore used the Text To Columns command (under Data|Data Tools). But apparently you can only define one character as the delimiter, and if I define it to be just the colon, then I have a space at the beginning of each word. I know I can probably do a few extra steps to ge rid of that leading space, but my question is: can one define more than one character as a delimiter, under the Text To Columns command? Anticipated thanks for any help!

Well, if it is something like A: 1 then all you need to do is Text-to-Columns, Delimiter.
Choose Space and in Other enter :
Check the box that says Treat consecutive delimiters as one.
That should work for you.

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 ?

Hi welcome to the board. How are you going to treat the duble items, If you want to merge 2 files adn duplication occurs here must be one cell whihc is common to let's say Book1 and Book2.

Hi guys,

I have a raw data spreadsheet of 10 stocks' price with date. I would like to write a vba program that can read off the raw data, produce 1st column as the date and the next 10 columns as the stocks' price. If any date doesn't have at least 1 of the stock price, that date will be obmitted.

It would be greatly appreciated if you can guide me through this since I am pretty new to this vba programming.

Hi there -

Thanks in advance for helping.

Here's the situation:
I have TWO excel files
'FILE A' ... Has a full list of over 2,000 entries, each with a unique ID in the far-left column ('A')
'FILE B' ... Has a list of 400 entries with their respective IDs (that are found within the 2,000)
I need to compare the data found in File B with that in File A. If they appear in both files, I want a '1' to appear in the cell next to it

Here's what I need:

In Column 'B' of "FILE A", I need a formula that will do the following:
=If A2 is found in the first column in "FILE B", then show '1', if not show nothing

Does anyone have a solution? I am not certain if a VLOOKUP is the possible solution, and if so, I cannot figure out the correct formula.


Thanks again,

A:EXCEL Question - Compare Data across two files, and if found return with a '1'

I am not certain if a VLOOKUP is the possible solutionClick to expand...

should be and then use a IF statement - to test if the vlookup is true or not

something like
=VLOOKUP(A2,[fileB.xlsx]Sheet1!$A$2:$A$xxxxx,1,false)
where xxxxx is the end of the row range
will do the lookup

use ISERROR to test if true of false

and then an IF to add the 1

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(A2,[fileB.xlsx]Sheet1!$A$2:$A$xxxxx,1,false)),"",1)

are both files open ?

this is just on two sheets, as an example here

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(A1,Sheet2!$A$1:$A$4,1,FALSE)),"",1)

so if there is an error - ie cannot find the lookup then as its true it returns nothing "" if it is true it returns 1

Hi guys,

Is it possible to hide certain columns in a worksheet? (Excel 97 on Win98se). We have a spreadsheet that has columns A-G then BF-BJ, then BM-BR. The person that created the spreadsheet is on vacation this week, so we can't talk to them. The person using the spreadsheet now, says there is more information that is needed to get this information currently on the spreadsheet. Is it a reach to think that there may be more info in possibly hidden columns? Aside from renaming columns, is there any other way that someone would go straight from G to BF?

Afternoon. I would like to build a query in Access 2010 to move some data from one field to another.

I only want to move some data though.
My fields are named mailadd1 and mailadd2
The data that needs to be moved is in mailadd1.

These are addresses. The first field should be the street address, the second should contain the city, state, and zip.

This is correct on a lot of the rows, but on about half of the 109K records, the data that should be in mailadd2 is in mailadd1 and mailadd2 is blank.

So I need to move the data from mail1 to mail2 IF mail2 is empty. In the following example the first row and the last row's data need to be moved, the middle two rows are fine.

Again, mailadd2 is always blank if the data needs to be moved, if that helps.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Ok, so i have an excel sheet with a number of columns that i need a formula for to calculate another value in another column in the same sheet. Column A is the one which needs the formula. The data in Column A needs to be a string which looks like this:

GCSO00MNI000

And then needs to have additional characters added to the end which are the values found in column C, such as "107". Therefore, column A's value for that row would be GCSO00MNI000107. The same calculation needs to take place for the next row in Column A, completing it's string with the value in the next row in Column C, and so on and so on, for 6500 rows.

How do i do this and not have to retype the needed calculations for all 6500 rows?

thanks in advance.
