Hello all ,
This is Joseph
i have A problem With Excel 2007 and Programming with it :confused:
I have made an Simple Product inventory Excel sheet ..
all what i need in it program a kind of a spreadsheet that lookup for the part number in the inventory and copy all The Row that it exist in :(
First : the file of my homeinventory is homeinventory.xls
every row contains 8 columns (part number, refrence, ..etc) ..
all what i need is to search for a Single part number and copy its entire row and paste it in another spread sheet or even word sheet ..also ...if this macro can be putten in command button that's will be very nice...
i dunno if there is any way to do that
really i am sorry for my poor english (just self study of english )
also if there any one wants to help me directly email is Removed e-mail address - You can put it in your profile - It's not secure out in the open - Moderator
if you don't understand what i mean ...just write some codes about
1- searching in spreadsheet for a partnumber that user write in Textbox
2- Copying the ENTIRE ROW of the result
3-pasting it in another sheet

and may also i know if i can put this codes in any other sheet (not the homeinventory sheet)

sorry for bothering
Joe :rolleyes:

What is the last column in Excel?
Excel columns run from A to Z, AA to AZ, AAA to XFD. The last column is XFD.
Hi Joe, welcome to the board!

Try the following:

1 From the menu View / toolbars / Control Toolbox
2 Click 'Command Button' icon and then on your sheet, click & drag to size
3 right-click the newly created command button & select 'View Code'
4 In the Properties window change the Caption to, say, 'Copy Data'
5 in the code window, delete everytjhing & replace with the following:
Option Explicit

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim iColend As Integer
Dim lTargetRow As Long, lFindRow As Long
Dim vPartNumber As Variant, vFilename As Variant
Dim wsSourceSheet As Worksheet, wsTarget As Worksheet
Dim wbTarget As Workbook

'-- assume input part numbers are in currently active sheet --
Set wsSourceSheet = ActiveSheet

'-- Prompt for output workbook --
vFilename = Application.GetOpenFilename(filefilter:="Excel files (*.xls),*.xls", _
                                        Title:="Please select file for output")
If vFilename = False Then Exit Sub

Application.EnableEvents = False

'-- Open the w/book --
Set wbTarget = Workbooks.Open(Filename:=vFilename)

'-- Store data into first sheet of target w/book --
Set wsTarget = wbTarget.Sheets(1)
lTargetRow = wsTarget.Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row

iColend = 8

'-- Loop & prompt for part numbers to copy until user cancels --
    vPartNumber = Application.InputBox(prompt:="Please enter Part Number required", _
                                     Title:="Part Number Copy", _
    If vPartNumber = False Then Exit Sub
    On Error Resume Next
    lFindRow = 0
    lFindRow = WorksheetFunction.Match(vPartNumber, wsSourceSheet.Columns("A"), 0)
    On Error GoTo 0
    If lFindRow = 0 Then
        MsgBox "Part number '" & vPartNumber & "' not found"
        lTargetRow = lTargetRow + 1
        wsTarget.Range("A" & lTargetRow, Cells(lTargetRow, iColend).Address).Value = _
            wsSourceSheet.Range("A" & lFindRow, Cells(lFindRow, iColend).Address).Value
    End If

Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

Hi Joe,

This macro will append the selected rows to Sheet2:
Sub CopySelectedRows()
'** Copy selected rows to sheet "Sheet2" **
Dim lTargetRow As Long, lAreas As Long
Dim rCopyRange As Range, rCur As Range
Dim sSelected As String, sCurRow As String
Dim wsTarget As Worksheet

'-- Set target worksheet --
Set wsTarget = Sheets("Sheet2")

sSelected = ""
For lAreas = 1 To Selection.Areas.Count
    Set rCopyRange = Selection.Areas(lAreas)
    lTargetRow = wsTarget.Cells(Rows.Count, rCopyRange.Column).End(xlUp).Row
    For Each rCur In rCopyRange
        sCurRow = "," & CStr(rCur.Row) & ","
        If InStr(sSelected, sCurRow) = 0 Then
            sSelected = sSelected & sCurRow
            lTargetRow = lTargetRow + 1
            wsTarget.Rows(lTargetRow).Value = ActiveSheet.Rows(rCur.Row).Value
        End If
    Next rCur
Next lAreas
End Sub

This macro will select all rows with column A containing the specified text:
Sub SelectRows()
'** Select rows containing specified string in column A **
Dim laRows() As Long, lPtr As Long
Dim rFind As Range
Dim sFirstAddress As String, sRows As String
Dim vFind As Variant

vFind = Application.InputBox(prompt:="Please enter string to be searched for", _
If vFind = False Then Exit Sub

ReDim laRows(0 To 0)
With ActiveSheet.Columns("A")
    Set rFind = .Find(vFind, lookat:=xlWhole)
    If Not rFind Is Nothing Then
        sFirstAddress = rFind.Address
            lPtr = UBound(laRows) + 1
            ReDim Preserve laRows(0 To lPtr)
            laRows(lPtr) = rFind.Row
            Set rFind = .FindNext(rFind)
            If rFind Is Nothing Then Exit Do
        Loop While rFind.Address <> sFirstAddress
    End If
End With

sRows = ""
For lPtr = 1 To UBound(laRows)
    sRows = sRows & "," & laRows(lPtr) & ":" & laRows(lPtr)
Next lPtr

Range(Mid$(sRows, 2)).Select

End Sub

Regarding printing the page, cant you just use the inbuilt Excel functionality?

Regarding saving to webpage, can you post as a seperate thread- I dont have Excel 2007 :(

Hi Joe,

The first sub 'CopySelectedRows' will determine which cells have been selected and then append the contents of each row to sheet2.

So if you select cell H2, it will append row 2 to sheet2

If you select cell H2 and F6 and range G9:J13, it will append rows 2,6 and 9 to 13.

Regarding the 'SelectRows' macro, you can either place a command button in your sheet and in the Command button code place a call to 'SelectRows' as follows:
Call SelectRows

OR you can just select the macro to run from the menu (not sure where this is in 2007)

Thanks Very Much al_b_cnu
Your Codes worked great With me , but i need to make little bit better or Complex,
see the " find " Tool in office .. (ctrl+F) , There is a Plugin called "find all" ...It is very great find all of them and put them in a list ...i need something like that ....and when i click on a line in the list select it ...thats will be very great
see the image :


Also , It will Be great if Just it find all ..and copy all's rows ...and paste it in sheet 2, i mean " Copy all" Instead of "replace all "
thanks Alot

Option Explicit

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim lTargetRow As Long, lHitCount As Long
Dim rFindRange As Range, rFind As Range
Dim sFirstAddress As String, sTargetAddress As String
Dim wsTargetSheet As Worksheet

Cancel = True

If Target.Text = "" Then Exit Sub

Set wsTargetSheet = Sheets("Sheet2")
lTargetRow = wsTargetSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, Target.Column).End(xlUp).Row

sTargetAddress = Target.Address

With ActiveSheet.UsedRange
    Set rFindRange = Range(Cells(.Row, Target.Column).Address, _
                            Cells(.Row + .Rows.Count - 1, Target.Column).Address)
End With

lHitCount = 0
With rFindRange
    Set rFind = .Find(Target.Value, lookat:=xlWhole)
    If Not rFind Is Nothing Then
        sFirstAddress = rFind.Address
            lHitCount = lHitCount + 1
            lTargetRow = lTargetRow + 1
            wsTargetSheet.Rows(lTargetRow).Value = ActiveSheet.Rows(rFind.Row).Value
            Set rFind = .FindNext(rFind)
            If rFind Is Nothing Then Exit Do
        Loop While rFind.Address <> sFirstAddress
    End If
End With

MsgBox lHitCount & " rows appended to sheet '" & wsTargetSheet.Name & "'."

End Sub

To install:
Right-click your sheet tab, select 'View Code' and paste into code window.

To use:
double-click the cell you wish to have copied to Sheet2. The code will append all rows which contain the same value to Sheet2.
