Hi

I would like to create a macro button on my users Excel 2003 to check a column P for entries and change it the cell to something else.

Example for what the macro data needs to be checked/changed to.

Full Time Employment needs to be changed to Employed FT
Part Time Employment needs to be changed to Employed PT.

Possibly done by a formula?

You could just use Find/Replace for that?

Yes, but I want to automate it so my users only have to hit the macro button and viola - its done.

Agree with Roy, why invent the wheel when it's already been invented! :)

You would need to define ALL the text that you want to change and for what you want to change it! If this is not a fixed list, then it's the same as making Ctrl+H to open the Find and Replace dialog box and entering the information to search and the replacement text...

This is the beginning of a macro which I would like to transform quite a few fields, once I got the macro doing the Employed bit, I will add the next macro function to it.

I hear what your saying thou guys - if it was just for the one column - the users would be able to use the find/replace without any hitches.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

It's basically just:
Range("P:P").Replace "Full Time Employment", "Employed FT"

Open in new window

and so on.
