Hi Experts,

I would like to request Experts help create macro to add Comma Separated “;” at end of the all value under column “Number”. E.g.

Number
500392;
500392;
694682;
694682;
575512;
575575;
 
Hope Experts will help me to create this feature. Attached the workbook for Experts perusal.

Hi kenwest3,

I'm intent to add this separator at number automatically while running at sub. Hope you can help to create a macro so that I can call this macro with other sub.

assuming your data is in column A, you can do this -
Sub addme()
    For i = 1 To Cells(65536, "A").End(xlUp).Row
        If Right(Range("A" & i), 1) <> ";" Then
            Range("A" & i) = Range("A" & i) & ";"
        End If
    Next
End Sub

If you have empty cells within the same row and you don't want to add the ";" to the cells then you can also try this -
this code will skip empty cells.


Sub addme()
    For i = 1 To Cells(65536, "A").End(xlUp).Row
        If Right(Range("A" & i), 1) <> ";" And Range("A" & i) <> "" Then
            Range("A" & i) = Range("A" & i) & ";"
        End If
    Next
End Sub

Hi Cartillo,

I think that is possible. "Borrowing" some code from your SearchData Macro, I modified the following - can you please try this once?


thanks,
Ardhendu
Sub addme()
    Set ws = ActiveSheet    ' SELECT CURRENT SHEET
    Set Rng = ws.Range("A1:Z65536")    ' DEFINE RANGE
    For Each Col In Rng.Columns    ' START SEARCHING THE RANGE FOR EMPTY COLUMNS
        For i = 1 To Cells(65536, Mid(Col.Address, 2, 1)).End(xlUp).Row
            If Right(Range(Mid(Col.Address, 2, 1) & i), 1) <> ";" And Range(Mid(Col.Address, 2, 1) & i) <> "" Then
                Range(Mid(Col.Address, 2, 1) & i) = Range(Mid(Col.Address, 2, 1) & i) & ";"
            End If
        Next
    Next
End Sub

Hi Ardhendu,

It works but need to omit Type columns. Only data under "Number" columns need to be added with ":". Please help.
