Finding rows that contain telephone format + specific word in all caps and pasting it into another worksheet

I've unsuccessfully tried my hand at modifying a macro (see code below) so it performs as follows:

Finds all rows in Sheet 1 that contain the following 2 criteria in the row, and copy those rows into Sheet 5:
The word "CENTRE" in all caps
A 10-digit telephone formatted as follows with a closing bracket only "???-???-????)"


Open in new window

Option Explicit
Sub Copy_CENTRE()
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim cl As Object
    Dim x As Integer
    Dim r As Long
    Dim arrCENTRE() As Variant
   
    arrCENTRE() = Array("???-???-????", "CENTRE")

    r = 2
    Sheets("Sheet1").Activate
    Set rng = Range("A2:A" & Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row)
    For Each cl In rng
        For x = 0 To UBound(arrCENTRE())
            If InStr(1, cl.Value, arrCENTRE(x), vbTextCompare) > 0 Then
                Sheets("Sheet5").Cells(r, 1).Value = cl.Value
                r = r + 1
            End If
        Next x
    Next cl
End Sub

Thanks in advance for your help,

Try this

Sub Copy_CENTRE()
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim cl As Object
    Dim x As Integer
    Dim r As Long
    Dim arrCENTRE() As Variant
    
    arrCENTRE() = Array("*???-???-????)*", "CENTRE")

    r = 2
    Sheets("Sheet1").Activate
    Set rng = Range("A2:A" & Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row)
    For Each cl In rng
        For x = 0 To UBound(arrCENTRE())
            If cl.Value Like arrCENTRE(x) Then
                Sheets("Sheet5").Cells(r, 1).Value = cl.Value
                r = r + 1
            End If
        Next x
    Next cl
End Sub

ok here it is:

replace this line
If InStr(1, cl.Value, arrCENTRE(x), vbTextCompare) > 0 Then

by this line
If LCase(cl.Value) Like LCase(arrCENTRE(x)) Then


here is the amended code

Sub Copy_CENTRE()
     Dim rng As Range
     Dim cl As Object
     Dim x As Integer
     Dim r As Long
     Dim arrCENTRE() As Variant
     
     arrCENTRE() = Array("???-???-????", "CENTRE")

     r = 2
     Sheets("Sheet1").Activate
     Set rng = Range("A2:A" & Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row)
     For Each cl In rng
         For x = 0 To UBound(arrCENTRE())
             If LCase(cl.Value) Like LCase(arrCENTRE(x)) Then
             'If InStr(1, cl.Value, arrCENTRE(x), vbTextCompare) > 0 Then
                 Sheets("Sheet5").Cells(r, 1).Value = cl.Value
                 r = r + 1
             End If
         Next x
     Next cl
 End Sub

In my code please change line 8 to

    arrCENTRE() = Array("*???-???-????)*", "*CENTRE*")

Martin, didn't he mention
The word "CENTRE" in all caps
?
need to lcase or else you wont trap them with the like alone.

Martin LissOlder than dirtCommented:
Actually if you change my line 8 to

    arrCENTRE() = Array("*???-???-????)*", "*[CENTRE]*")

you ignore "centre" or anything that's not all upper case.

Thanks for the quick responses.

I tried your solution, Martin, and while every row pasted into Sheet5 met the second criteria ("???-???-????"), most did not meet the first criteria ("CENTRE").

And Gowflow, I tried your solution and did not get any results in Sheet5.

And just to confirm, Gowflow, that all the rows of data in Sheet1 is in one cell per row — all in column A1 x 54,000 rows— and not spanning several cells/columns.

Hope that helps...

Thanks,
Andrea

Hi MartinLiss,

I've attached a sample spreadsheet with your macro inserted:

Sheet1 - sample data
Sheet5 - results of running the current macro
Sheet2 - the results I am looking for

Hope this helps...

Hi Gowflow,

I tried your copy.xlsm but it wasn't doing what I'm looking for. Hopefully my sample Excel file will help illustrate what I'm after...

ok her eit is

this is the new macro

Sub Copy_CENTRE()
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim cl As Object
    Dim x As Integer
    Dim r As Long
    Dim arrCENTRE() As Variant
    Dim bPhone As Boolean, bCentre As Boolean
    
    arrCENTRE() = Array("???-???-????", "CENTRE")

    r = 2
    Sheets("Sheet1").Activate
    Set rng = Range("A2:A" & Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row)
    For Each cl In rng
        For x = 0 To UBound(arrCENTRE())
            Select Case x
                Case 0  'phone
                    If cl.Value Like "*" & arrCENTRE(x) & "*" Then
                        'Sheets("Sheet3").Cells(r, 1).Value = cl.Value
                        'r = r + 1
                        bPhone = True
                    End If
                    
                Case 1  'centre
                    If InStr(1, cl.Value, arrCENTRE(x)) <> 0 Then
                        'Sheets("Sheet3").Cells(r, 1).Value = cl.Value
                        'r = r + 1
                        bCentre = True
                    End If
            End Select
        Next x
        
        If bPhone And bCentre Then
            Sheets("Sheet3").Cells(r, 1).Value = cl.Value
            r = r + 1
        End If
        
        bPhone = False
        bCentre = False
        
    Next cl
End Sub

Open in new window


it will give results in sheet3.

For next time pls give a sample from the start to avoid waste of time.
Tks
