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.

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

You are right about the CAD / CAN

Thanks a lot for your help. this works like a charm.
