    Lightbulb New user looking for some expert guidance.

    Greetings to Everyone! I am excited to be here because I enjoy the practicality of VBA. I have little coding background but am a quick study and I love code. Currently I work for an avionics business in Tallahassee, FL. I am a project manager among other things. I am trying to take an inventory list and run macros that will allow me to segment the 4000+ part numbers into categories in new columns. The issue I am having is that I can not get a wild card function to work, leaving me to have to code all 4000 parts. All of the Servo motors have a 10 digit part number like:

    A roll servo is 065-00179-0600
    Another type of Roll servo is 065-00179-0300

    I only need them to be categorized past the -00179- into roll servo's or past only the 065- as servos. Anyways lets get to the good stuff...

    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    My plan is to create a macro that will format the data how I want ( which is as simple as recording) and then run the above macro to add columns of data based on my segmentation of the parts(without writing out 9000+ lines of code.) That I can then run through another macro to turn into graphs to use in marketing. (I have not gotten this far yet.)

    I appreciate any guidance anyone could offer. I plan to study VBA more extensively in the coming years so I'll be around. Thanks!

    Regards,

    Tyler

    Hi, TylerAtWork,

    please do not duplicate your threads in different subforums on EF (maybe have a look at Forum Rule #5). And you would need to wrap your procedure with code-tags as requested in Rule #3.

    Ciao,

    Use Code-Tags for showing your code: [code] Your Code here [/code]
    Please mark your question Solved if there has been offered a solution that works fine for you

    Maybe you can tell me how to delete a post while you're at it.
