How to create a function in Excel...a second question?

Thank you to the person that helped me yesterday...a huge help! The isanswer and match functions worked great!

I now need to write a formula to do the following: I need to find if the value in cell C1/Sheet 1 is in column D/Sheet 2. If true, return the value (text) in Column E/Sheet 2 that is in the same row as the value found in Column D. If false, return "null" or "false".

I tried the same isanswer and match formula as it seemed it was close to the solution but it didn't work. Can you help me again? :)


Paste this in cell E1 Sheet2
=IF( ISNA(MATCH( Sheet1!C1, Sheet2!D:D,0)), "","Text")

And fill it down

----- Edit ----
Yes, in this case, use this
=IF( ISNA(VLOOKUP( Sheet1C1, Sheet2!D:E,2,FALSE )),"Not found",VLOOKUP( Sheet1C1, Sheet2!D:E,2,FALSE))

This whould work

In excel, is it possible to find a string or data in a set of pdf files?

I Need to extract information automatically from a set of pdf,, lets say I have 3 pdf files named. f-1.pdf, f-2.pdf, f-3.pdf and I need to extract a value inside the f-2.pdf file. that string will be something like "force A =100lb"
I need to extract that 100.

any clue where I can start to look?


If you don't have Adobe Acrobat (and not Acrobat Reader)? then I guess the only solution is copy and paste

May be any pfd creator application can help you automate that

How do i get Excel to automatically extend the cell to fit the text typed?


The other two solutions are "AFTER" you hit enter or select another cell

To answer your question, there is no way in Excel to extend your column width "WHILE YOU TYPE"

forget it

Excel 2003 - VB - Accessing abilities between modules for public functions?

I have one module with:
"Public Function Code128B(inpara As String) As String"
and then the function (i'm pretty sure it's copyrighted etc; it said Shareware on a few sites i was at and it's for barcodes)

I have another module with:
Dim foot As String
foot = ActiveWorkbook.Name + " " + ActiveSheet.Name
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.CenterFooter = "&""MRV Code128bMA,Regular""&14 " & Code128B(foot)

And the error is returning is that it is an "Ambiguous Code Name"

Is there something fishy going between modules with public functions? I'd think that a public function means it's always available to every module but I'm not sure.

If this is not enough data to solve the problem say so and I'll just let the whole thing drop (it's not my code or job to fix it :P )


You are right
"Public" will set this function public to every other module inside that workbook
And I quote "That Workbook"
If you are running this from another workbook, you need to call the function in another way

If you are using the same workbook, then you may need to check two stuff:
1- You have a reference to the library that is used by that function
Some function requires you to add a reference (Toos > References) to a specified library to make it rub
2- You don't have the "Option Explicit" in any of your modules

If you still face the problem again, mail me some sample files, I can do it for you (May be for free)
