previous question for reference:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Excel/Q_28120329.html



Userform:
 textbox
listbox


currently this code is taking the value in a textbox and if it does not exist in the loistbox in column 4 it deletes it from the listbox.




' the code is working fine...

What I need: I now want to use the Split function and using a ;(semi-colon) as a delimiter.
In the textbox...search for each value from the textbox getting rid of all the items in the listbox that do not contain the values from the textbox..

i.e. Textbox33 may have:

4-40;Hex;1/2;Steel

So all 4 criteria must exist somewhere in the column specified





 
Dim strFilter As String
Dim lngIndex As Long

strFilter = frmResultAll.TextBox33.Text

For lngIndex = ListBox32.ListCount - 1 To 0 Step -1
    If InStr(1, ListBox32.List(lngIndex, 3), strFilter) = 0 Then
        ListBox32.RemoveItem (lngIndex)
    End If
Next


Thanks

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim strFilter() As String
Dim lngIndex As Long
Dim lngPart As Long
Dim bFound As Boolean

strFilter = Split(TextBox33.Text, ";")

For lngIndex = ListBox1.ListCount - 1 To 0 Step -1

That search is case sensitive. If you don't want it to be then change line 12 to

        If UCase(ListBox1.List(lngIndex, 3)) = UCase(strFilter(lngPart)) Then

I assumed that if the listbox item does not contain 4-40 or Hex or 1/2 or Steel (or any other values that might be in the textbox) then that listitem should be deleted. Since that's apparently not what you want, please describe what should happen.

"I assumed that if the listbox item does not contain 4-40 or Hex or 1/2 or Steel (or any other values that might be in the textbox) then that listitem should be deleted"
Yes this is what i want..

The listbox rows left would be rows that contain
4-40 or Hex or 1/2 or Steel

no matter what i type in  textbox33   it will not filter correctly...
I see 4-40 in several rows in my listbox so it should retain those rows but deletes everyting.

o, I see the communication problem.

I have descriptions.

Hex, 4-40 1/2-30 x Box Hex head
Hex, 5.20 1/2-20 x Square Head
Hex, 4-40 1/2-30 x Square head

so it want to filter
4-40;Square

I should only see
Hex, 4-40 1/2-30 x Square head

so it want to filter
4-40;Hex;Head

Hex, 4-40 1/2-30 x Box Hex head
Hex, 4-40 1/2-30 x Square head

OK try this.


Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim strFilter() As String
Dim lngIndex As Long
Dim lngPart As Long
Dim bFound As Boolean

strFilter = Split(TextBox33.Text, ";")

For lngIndex = ListBox1.ListCount - 1 To 0 Step -1
    bFound = True
    For lngPart = 0 To UBound(strFilter)
        If InStr(1, UCase(ListBox1.List(lngIndex, 3)), UCase(strFilter(lngPart))) = 0 Then
            bFound = False
            Exit For
        End If
    Next
    If Not bFound Then
        ListBox1.RemoveItem (lngIndex)
    End If
Next

End Sub
