Hi,

I have this MSHFlexgrid1 where in Column 0,1 and 11, I may have multiple rows with the same values. Everything is already sorted by those 3 columns.

Using this:
    With MSHFlexGrid1
     .ColSel = 11
        .Sort = flexSortStringAscending
        .ColSel = 1
        .Sort = flexSortStringAscending
        .ColSel = 0
        .Sort = flexSortStringAscending
    End With

Open in new window


What i would like to do is that if i have multiple rows with the same value in column 0, 1 and 11, it will leave all cell populated  as it is and also add the letter "H" in column 4 of the first row only.
Then, it will empty the value in column 3 and add the letter "D" in column 4.

Example of the grid before the macro:
Before_sample
Then after the macro:
Macro_result
What would be the best way to do that as i can have up to 7000 rows in the grid.

I have put a sample of the project in attachment.

Thanks for your help

The zip only contains the vbp file. I need the whole thing, or at least Form1.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Note that in order to get your results I needed to change MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(1, 11) = "CAD" in Form_Load to MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(1, 11) = "CAN".
Private Sub Command2_Click()
    Dim strOldKey As String
    Dim lngRow As Long
    Dim lngD As Long
    Dim lngStartRow As Long
    
    strOldKey = MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(1, 0) & MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(1, 1) & MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(1, 11)
    lngStartRow = 1
    MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngStartRow, 3) = "H"
    
    For lngRow = 2 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
        If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow, 0) & MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow, 1) & MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow, 11) <> strOldKey Then
            MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngRow, 3) = "H"
            For lngD = lngStartRow + 1 To lngRow - 1
                MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngD, 2) = ""
                MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngD, 3) = "D"
            Next
            lngStartRow = lngRow
            strOldKey = MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngStartRow, 0) & MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngStartRow, 1) & MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngStartRow, 11)
        End If
    Next
    For lngD = lngStartRow + 1 To lngRow - 1
        MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngD, 2) = ""
        MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(lngD, 3) = "D"
    Next
End Sub
