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.

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

Open in new window

and so on.
