# Interesting one-copying discrete lines from a dataset

#### fidgen

Hiya,

I have a spreadsheet (sheet1) containing 26 columns and 1000+ rows of data. Column A is date, the other 25 are bird species, and the cells relate to how many birds were seen on that day.

But what i want to do is a little complex:

A second spreadsheet has 45 columns of data, the first one is date ,and the next 25 columns relate to the 25 in sheet1, the next 19 are birstrike information (ie when and how the bird hit the plane)

If the birdstrike occurred in column 3 (crow) then there would be a 1 in that cell, but 0's in all the other cells of that row.

with me?

oh it gets worse...

I want to make a macro that searches along the rows in sheet2, columns 2:26, and when until it finds a 1 it needs to go back to column A, match the date with column A in sheet 1 and pull out the data in the corresponding cell in sheet1 into column 46 in sheet 2.

here's my attempt, very messy and long, but it was the only way i could get close (after a days fiddling)

Sub Strikeupdate3()

### Excel Facts

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)
Hi,

I think your code can be reduced to:<pre>
Sub Strikeupdate()
A = 2
While Worksheets("Strikes2").Cells(A, 1)<> ""
For B = 1 To 26
If Worksheets("strikes2").Cells(A, B) = 1 Then
Worksheets("strikes2").Cells(A, 42) = Worksheets("Data").Cells(A, B)
End If
Next B
A = A + 1
Wend
End Sub</pre>

Q: What if there are more 1's on a row? It seems that you are only interested in the last 1 in the same row.

hiya - each line will only have the one 1 in it, so that is not the problem.

Your code works fine, except that "A" in "strikes2" and "data" are not the same unfortunately. Strikes2 is a summary sheet of data with single rows picked out - so row 2 of strikes2 may match row 2 in data, but row 3 of strikes2 can be row 987 of data, The common thing to both rows however would be the date in column A. - So I need the macro to match the cells with the "1" in by looking for column, and then for row by using the date.

Is this possible?

Thanks for your time!

Hugh

This is what i've come up with from your code - obviously still doesn't work (that would be too much to hope) but it shows what I want to do.

Thanks
Hugh

Sub Strikeupdate3()
A = 2
For C = 2 To 5000
While Worksheets("Strikes2").Cells(A, 1) <> ""
For B = 2 To 26
If Worksheets("strikes2").Cells(A, 1) = Worksheets("data").Cells(C, 1) Then
C = A
End If
If Worksheets("strikes2").Cells(A, B) = 1 Then
Worksheets("strikes2").Cells(A, 42) = Worksheets("Data").Cells(A, B)
End If
Next B
A = A + 1
Wend
Next C
End Sub

Here is the code I used to solve the problem - it matches the values in column A in both spreadsheets, and then once a match is found it finds the correct column and then copies the value from one sheet to a specific cell in the other.

Sub StrikeUpdate3()

X = 2
For A = 2 To 5000
If Worksheets("strikes2").Cells(A, 1) = "" Then
Exit For
End If

DateStrikes2 = Worksheets("strikes2").Cells(A, 1)

For B = X To 5000

DateData = Worksheets("Data").Cells(B, 1)

If DateData = DateStrikes2 Then
For C = 2 To 26
If Worksheets("strikes2").Cells(A, C) = 1 Then
Worksheets("strikes2").Cells(A, 42) = Worksheets("data").Cells(B, C)
Exit For
End If

Next 'C
Exit For
End If

Next 'B
X = B
Next 'A

End Sub
