Locking Rows Together When Sorting

I need to lock consecutive rows together before sorting. e.g. A1 contains a name and A2 is blank: B1 contains data related to name in A1 - so does B2, and so on. Therefore need to lock rows 1 and 2 together, then 3 and 4 together and so on, but sorting on the data in the first cell of the group e.g. A1

Could you guide me please....

I need to insert 5 blank rows repeatedly between every existing data rows
for approximately 300 rows.

If I go about doing the repeat short-cut "Control+Y", it just repeats
inserting ONE row only between the consecutive data row.

Is there some command, which helps me highlight all the rows & allows me to
insert 5 blank rows between every consecutive existing data row?

Thanks in advance for your kind advice.



I feel like this should be really easy and I am just out of it today but I cannot figure this out. I want to lock a row and filter (with filter,not sort, tool) the other rows. I attached an example

The row in RED I want to never be changed or added in the filter, but I want row 2 and 1 to filter together. So I want (in this case) the flavor to filter with the same number. SO i guess the filter process would be dependent upon the total number of votes. Any ideas? Thanks!

I had to create the information in tables and went from there. Got it. Thanks!


Hi...hoping someone can help with a grouping problem.

I have 50 rows that I want to group. Rows 1-10 should be a group, 11-20 are a group, etc. The problem is, when I group 1-10 and then group 11-20 seperately, excel automatically makes 1-20 a single group and removes the individual groups that I wanted.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!


There sure is...Here's how:

From the Excel main menu:
<data><group and outline><settings>
Uncheck: Summary rows below detail

Does that help?

Hi!

I have a question regarding filtering of columns, hopefully someone is able to put me on the right track. I have set up Excel 2007 so that I can click on the drop-down menu in each column to filter them.

However, in my data set there is one blank row separating two set of rows. Now, when I apply the filter on a column, all the rows above the blank row filter correctly, but all the rows below stay un-filtered.

I guess Excel only looks at the consequtive rows, then stops when it hits a blank row. Is there any way of applying the filter beyond a blank row (i.e. the whole column)?

Any advice is higly appreciated.


after sorting data in ascending order, how do i unsort it to get back the original format? i can't find the option anywhere on the excel ribbon for this


I have searched and read all the help files. I find the properties of
an object, I see how I can "lock", "size and move with cells" or "not
move with cells". No matter what I select, the object moves off the
screen, when the user, scrolls to the right of the spreadsheet.

Is there a way to lock the position, let's say , in the upper right
corner and have it stay there?

This would be quite useful for an EXIT button, that I have created,
that will close the program without saving (it's a read-only file.)

Thanks to all the wonderful people here that have been so helpful and
give us their valuable insight and time.

After you filter out data, how to you re-number the row numbers so they are, again, consecutive?


This is my first post in these forums.
I am trying to create a formula which will look at the data in columns A - I (50 rows) and copy this data to columns K - S but ignoring any blank cells. Thereby consolidating the data in the upper rows with no spaces.
I am sure there is a relativley simple answer but it is driving me mad!
Hope you "Guru's" can help

Thanks

Added example spreadsheet to aid assistance.


Is there any way to automatically lock in the date after you pull it up with the TODAY function? Or is there another function that will do what I'm trying to do?

I want it to automatically fill in today's date, when a certain empty cell has a value put in, then freeze there.

Thanks in advance!


How do I sort but have the other data move with the column I'm sorting? Whenever I sort, for example, by name, the address and phone numbers columns stay the same and are therefore incorrect with the newly sorted columns. I've looked everywhere.


I'm unable to group/ungroup rows or columns on an excel worksheet that was
emailed to me by a co-worker. It's an existing file so I don't know what
restrictions were placed on the workbook. What can I do to fix this problem?



I'm trying to have separate column widths in the same column, based on the rows.

the top half of my spreadsheet are assumptions, formatted with the corrects widths needed, but then below I have calculations and such that I do not want the same widths for. how can I lock in the top part so I can decrease the column widths for the bottom half of my spreadsheet?

hope this makes sense.


Hi peeps

I want to combine data from several worksheets into one worksheet.

For example, I have data in Sheet1 (Columns A,B,C), data in Sheet2 (Columns A,B,C), data in Sheet3 (Columns A,B,C) all with varying amounts of rows. (All the rows contain text data).

I need to combine all of the data from the 3 sheets into a single sheet, Sheet4 (Columns A,B,C), eliminating the empty rows.

I've been looking into this for a while, and can't find anything that really helps. Anyone got any pointers of what to look into?

Any help will be beautiful.

Cheers



I've been using Excel for years and had very few issues. However, I recently went into a spreadsheet to update it and was unable to select and enter data into an individual cell. When I click on a cell and try to enter #s nothing happens (my num lock is on). Then when I try to click into another cell it just highlights that cell, along with any other that I move my cursor over. Once I click on one cell I can't stop the highlighting from happening. I can't even click on anything in the toolbar. I am extremely confused, can anyone help?


I am looking for the code to select the visible data after applying a data filter. Actually I know how to select the data after applying the data filter but the issue is I am not able to exclude the header row and give the target range as used (non-blank) rows only!!

I am using below code to Select the Visible rows in the target range:

Code:

Range("A:p").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Select


Problems in this code a

1) after applying the filter, while selecting the data it is selecting all the rows in given range till last row on the workbook. I need this to select the the data only till the last used row in the given range.

2) It is not possible to provide the address of the first row after we apply the filter since the first row address may change depending on the values in the table.

E.g. 1st time when I am running the macro the first row in the visible filtered data is starting at Cell address A4 and next time when I will run the macro it may be A6

3) The Code is also selecting the 1st row which is a header row. How can we exclude it from selection.

Some one please revert with the solution.
Thanks in advance.


Good mornng - I am new to the forum - my name is Jena

My question is this - I have a large spreadsheet with multiple columns of information. I want to sort it by a certain column. I know how to do this. My question is, once I'm done with my work I want to sort it back to the original "sort" but I'm not sure how they have it sorted. I've tried to figure out how they have it sorted but can't. Is there some way to go back to the original sort?

Thank you for your anticipated help.

I have a formula in cell C1 (=A1/B1). I want to copy this formula down to row C20, however rows A2 to A20 are empty so C2 to C20 show (#DIVO!). Is there something I can put in the formula to make column C be blank until the data is enter into Columns A & B?


Hi,
how do I select (in VBA) all the rows that were filtered out by autofilter (using VBA code) and delete them leaving just header. I just can't figure out how to select entire rows when the data is filtered...
Thanks for your hints!


In Excel there is a difference between cells that are blank (= "") and that are empty. You can make blank cells empty by selecting them and pressing the delete key, but I need a fast way to do this on all blank cells in a large worksheet. The only way I have found is with a VBA macro that loops through every cell, tests for '.Value = "" ' and then uses the '.Clear()' function, but doing this on 30 columns x 10000 rows is far too slow. Any solutions?

(The reason I need to do this is for importing into Access, the database treats empty cells as NULL which is what I want. Blank (but not empty) cells screw the import process up.)
