Ask Your Own Programming Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
there will be multiple do you need to know exactly how many?

No it is ok, ill just keep creating them as needed, but it is a complex macro that needs to be coded

Sorry? Are you now changing the work requirement?

Ask Your Own Programming Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Nope I was really after how to write the macro
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Can you help me with this?

ok, I am lost now, I am busy doing the work for you, you now want to be taught how to right tjhis macro yourself?

Is this what you are now requesting?

Ask Your Own Programming Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
The file I gave you was an example of what needs to be done - If you write the macro for that segment how can I modify it to work on the master file
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
does that make sense?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I am sorry if I was unclear before
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
how is it going?

Ok, this is done and available here

https://www.dropbox.com/s/tnjhmdofhldrrhh/Merge.xlsm?dl=0

Copy the columns from other sheets to it, make sure they are in A and B

Then press CTRL + R to run it

It will give you a message box when it is done

Let me know how you go

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Hey how do I copy the macro and apply it to another worksheet?

You cannot as it is for the sheet you gave me, thats how macros will work.

Copy the data from another sheet into it, run the macro then copy the data back

Ask Your Own Programming Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Okay can I add a tab and run the macro in the same sheet?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I also need to do two things 1.) Be able to count each division so I can get a total at the bottom 2.) Create a separate column for each division
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
What changes need to be made?

It create a sepearate column already for each division.

What do you mean by counting each division?

Ask Your Own Programming Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
For example all divisions A go into 1 column all division B's go into its own column
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
use the count function to total the number number of division A's
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
It's not letting me upload a file
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
but here is the idea
Account Salesrep Division F Division M Divison S Division E
@TOLL RBC F
12TH HB F
12TH JS S
12TH RM M E
16WES JS S
1ST HOU F
Total Count 3 1 2 1

ok, I am a little confused as you said it worked the way you wanted.

What now do you want with the totals? what are you trying to total?

I need to modify it a little bit

That is not telling me anything, please explain this new requirement you have.

Ask Your Own Programming Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
It would be easier if I could upload the file and show you
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Account Rep Division F Division S Division M
12th RM F M
12th Hou S
12th JS MTotal Count 1 1 2
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Okay I'll try and explain it - For each division I need a separate Column... so all the F's go into one column and all the S go into its own column and so on

ok, that is completly different to what you originally asked for... I need to recode the entire thing to do this, you will need to make a new question for this as I will have to recode it all over again for you.

Ask Your Own Programming Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
at the bottom of the sheet I need to be able to count the number of division "F" that appear
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
How much will that cost?

I cannot see pricing here, but you will see it when you make the question.

and please make sure to specify exactly what you want. I am not sure why you said it was working how you wanted, but then added additional requirements afterwards, it will mean recoding everything each time you do this, so please be complete in your requirements when making the question.

As I was playing with the data I found out I needed changes made - I am not quite sure how usual that is
