Control Character For Line Feed?

I am concatenating text strings via formulae but need a means to insert a second line within a cell. I'm looking for a code equivalent to Alt-Enter to insert in the formula. Any help is appreciated.

I need to insert a "." into a column of cells. What is the best way to do this?

Example: Existing data 1000UG01
Needs to be 1000UG.01

Existing cells are all the same length and the "." needs to be inserted in the same place.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I have a graph with various information in it. One is a line graph that tracks hours used in that department per month. The problem is that when it gets to the last month, and there is not yet data for future months, the line goes down to Zero (leavin this big diagonal line that makes the data look funny). I need this line to stop on the last month there is data for. (I do not manually enter the data, it is a formula that I do not wish to delete.) I know I can manually move the data that the line is pulling to make it stop on the last month, but I have a graph for 36 different departments and that's a pain to have to manually adjust 36 graphs each month. Is there a way to tell the line to stop if there is no data? Thanks!!

Could you guide me please....

I need to insert 5 blank rows repeatedly between every existing data rows
for approximately 300 rows.

If I go about doing the repeat short-cut "Control+Y", it just repeats
inserting ONE row only between the consecutive data row.

Is there some command, which helps me highlight all the rows & allows me to
insert 5 blank rows between every consecutive existing data row?

Thanks in advance for your kind advice.

I have a userform containing a multicolumn listbox (ListBox1) and textbox (txtSelectedJobNumber).

When a user clicks on a line in the listbox I want to automatically copy the text in the 3rd column of the selected line to the textbox.

If anyone could provide code which would allow me to do this I would be grateful



Hi everyone,

I'm going nuts trying to figure out how to autofill text from one cell
to another. For example, everytime I type text into cell A20, I want
the exact same thing to cell BL20. The same for B20, BL20, etc.

How do I go about that? I already know how to copy formulas from one
cell to another by dragging the skinny black line of the cell. I guess
I just need the formula for a simple IDENTICAL copying of text.

Thanks in advance,


I use a excel file through the course of the day and need to insert the current date in one column and the current time in the next column. I want to be able to just highlight the selected range of cells I need to insert into and hit a macro button and have the date and time inserted into just the cells I have highlighted. I'm not sure how to make this work with just the cells I've highlighted. Any help any one can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Morning all,

Many thanks for your help

I can't find this solutions anywhere. I know how to send emails from Excel using VBA. When I get to the Body section, I want to insert a clickable link to a website, and also a clickable link to send an email (not as important as the website). Can this be done? I have found code to insert links to files, but none for website links.

Hi all,

I have some formulae in A1, is it possible for cell B1 to display the value only of A1 without the link to the formulae. I dont want to have to run a macro, or paste values, more of a formula that could be assigned to cell B1 so whenever A1 is changed, so is B1 automatically.



I am puzzled by a thin black line (that looks like a border line) on a spreadsheet that I am unable to remove, whatever I do. It starts halfway across column B and stops just at the end of column Z.
It is not a border line.
It is not a page break.
If I delete the rows it appears on it remains visible.
It is not an object floating on top of the spreadsheet.
Any ideas?

I have a spreadsheet with thousands of columns. Due to poor planning on my part I need to insert a column between each existing column (e.g. I need to insert a column between the existing columns A and B, B and C, etc...). I would rather not have to do this manually thousands of times. Is there an easy way to do this?

Thanks in advance.

I would like to create a formula that removes a specific character if it appears in a cell. In this case, if the text in the name cell starts with * or #, remove it. Otherwise, keep the contents intact. Examples:


Text in Cell Desired Results

#Erick Aybar Erick Aybar
Jason Bartlett Jason Bartlett

Is there a formula that will get me where I want to be?



I am trying to insert a range of cell in the body of an outlook email with the same format. The code I am using now is below and it does insert anything in the email body.


Sub Mail()
Dim OutApp As Object
 Dim OutMail As Object
 Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
 Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)
 On Error Resume Next
 With OutMail
 .To = ""
 .CC = ""
 .BCC = ""
 .Subject = "Burden Report"
 .Body = ActiveSheet.Range("A1:D12")
 .Attachments.Add ("C:\Documents and Settings\cbelcher\Desktop\Burden Report.xls")
End With
 On Error GoTo 0
 Set OutMail = Nothing
 Set OutApp = Nothing
 Set objMsg = Nothing
End Sub

Is there a way that will run the code from a button when the enter key is pressed. Currently the enter key moves to the next text box in the user form.

Is there a way I can use conditional formatting or something to change the color of the cell once I enter a value or text into that cell? For example if I currently have the A2 cell color as a gray color, and I enter information into A2 can I have it set to automatically change to no fill or any other color without having to click out of the cell, back into it, and then clicking the button?? Does that make sense??? Can someone help me?

I'm working on a speadsheet that has thousands of line items with lots of great information, but not in the fields I need them to be in. Is there a formula to move for example cell contents A26 to B25 and D26 to F27? Also I have contents in one cell that I need to break apart is there a formula for that too? I searced the help and the net an came up with nothing. Maybe I'm not wording it correctly, but I'd appreciate the help.

Hello All

I wonder if you could help with this one, I have a list of data like this (no spaces or other characters)


What I need to do is split each of the characters in to its own cell

if JN551122B was in cell A1 I'd want to return:

B2 C2 D2 E2 F2 G2 H2 I2 J2
J N 5 5 1 1 2 2 B

The nearest I have got is the right function, but it brings over the preceeding characters, and I need each character in its own cell. Hopefully I could copy/paste a formula and change the reference for each cell value, i.e. 1 would return J, 2 = N, 3 = 5, 4 = 5 etc.

Thanks for your help!

I have a textbox in my userform where anything typed in the box is entered into cell A2 in my worksheet. However, multiple lines of text are not properly displayed in my worksheet. I have enabled MultiLine and EnterKeyBehaviour in the properties window of the textbox so I can type multiple lines in my textbox. The problem is that when I press the button to enter the text from my txtbox to cell A2, the cell doesn't actually display the text in separate lines. It just places a square symbol in the place that enter should have been pressed and the text should have been split into separate lines.

How can I get the separate lines of text in my textbox to be properly displayed in a cell? Thanks for your help in advance..


I have several rows of text data, the first 17 characters of which are in this format (4 letters_-_DD.MM.YYYY

Many thanks!

Hi, hope someone can assist, i want to add some arrow syimbols in to a formula, so that when the formula works out it shows an up arrow for higher or a down arrow for lower, i am using this formula at the moment because i dont know any better but it works, putting in the word up or down:

I have entered the following formula in to a cell: =IF(S3<R3,"DOWN","UP") it works however i want to replace the word Down and up with the relevant arrows symbol. How do i do this?


So I've got some data, which has the approximate form of a sine function. I want to find all the x-axis intercepts. I tried using the intercept function and swapping around the y values for the x values, but it only returns 1 value (so I'd guess it uses a linear regression to estimate a single line through the axis).

I was thinking of trying a nested if/and statement but I haven't quite figured out how to do it. Basically I want to identify the two values where it switches from positive to negative and also indentify the values where it goes negative to positive, I can then fit a straight line between them to find a better approximation of the intercept (though it might not be necessary). Preferably I'd like it all one function as I'm not doing it in VBA (I might do later though, we'll see).

Can anyone suggest how I'd find these value or the x-intercept. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have cells in a column, some colored yellow, some not. I am trying to use
the SUMIF function to sum only the cells in the range that are colored. Can
this be done? Can I enter something in the "criteria" part of the formula
that can do this?


I also tried to use the CELL function's color feature, but I couldn't get it
to work right. I don't know how to get Excel to recognize if a cell is
colored in a formula.

It might just be that I don't know what this means in Help:

"color" --> 1 if the cell is formatted in color for negative values;
otherwise returns 0 (zero).

Can anyone help?

I am looking for a method/formula that will reverse multiple text entries from "abcde" to "edcba". The entries are composed of several words that need to be reversed ie from "ab cde fg" to "gf edc ba"


Below is the code I am using. I am trying to change the subject to show the value of a cell.


 With OutMail
 .To = ""
 .CC = ""
 .BCC = ""
 .Subject = "Attrition for" & Range("c5")
 .Body = ""
 .Attachments.Add wb2.FullName

When it sends it does not show the name in c5.
It just reads "Attrition for"

Should there be a different code?
