  • 2. Search column and move text formula
    I am trying to collate results from an online questionnaire. I have a list of all possible field names in column A. I then import the results of a submitted questionnaire - these come in 2 columns and I place them in C and D. D cotains the data/responses and C is the corresponding field name. Unfortunately questionnaire fields that are not answered do not produce anything in column C (ie return no field name) thus I need to match up the data in D with the corresponding field in A. The only was I can see doing this is to devise a formula that searches column A for the fieldname in say C1 and then copies the data from D1 to B(number) i.e. adjacent to the correct fieldname in A. The formula would then be run through column C. Any help? Thanks to those suggestions earlier... I felt a little further explanation was required! Regards, Tom

Strike-through an entire row.

OK... I need to know if there is a way I can strike through the text on
a row by highlighting the row with the defunkt information and
activating a macro.

Let's see if I can give an example.


Say I'm entering data in, row by row... Each row's data is SIMILAR but
not the same. 
Now let's say that apon review I notice that one of the row is
incorrect.
I need to be able to highlight the row (Presumably by selecting the
corresponding number on the left hand side {1,2,3 etc}) then I need to
run a macro (that will eventually be tied to a button) and then be done
the macro would turn the text .RED  and then strike through the
information. Is that even possible? if so... can you help me?!


Thanks a ton, Josh

Josh,

You can select an entire row with Shift-Space too.  The following code will
make the entire row red (that the cell pointer is in).

Sub RedStrike()
    With Selection.EntireRow.Font
      .Strikethrough = True
      .ColorIndex = 3
      End With
End Sub

I did this by recording a macro, then taking out a bunch of stuff and
tweaking it a bit.  You may wish to assign a shortcut to run it quickly from
the keyboard.  Tools - Macro - Macros.  Select the macro, and click Options.
There's a place to put in a shortcut.  I used Shift-R.  It wound up
Ctrl-Shift-R.  The Excel shortcuts don't use Shift, AFAIK.

1.Error--"try selecting only entire rows, entire columns, or just groups of cells"

I've looked online for help and found the following.  I tried following the
directions, but it doesn't seem to do anything.  The original row shows 2
selected rows (even when I try to select only one to delete the other) and
when I follow these directions, it inserts 2 rows.  :
