    Problems updating list and formula entries using find & replace Excel 2010

    Hi

    I have encountered a strange problem in Excel 2010 which I haven't encountered before. I have built an accounting system for a friends business which is now complete. The foundation of the spreadsheet is that it runs on lists that can be updated i.e New Supplier 1 up to New Supplier 400 together with New Sales 1 up to New Sales 350. However what excel is doing is when I find New Supplier 1 it is also finding all of the other New Supplier entries that start with 1 i.e New Supplier 10 up to 19, as it sees the cell as the same entry even though it's not. I have tried to use the match case and other checkbox and it doesn't seem to make a difference as it needs to update all cell and formula entries. I built a version using 2010 back in 2013 and this didn't happen as I have used the same principles to build the new version this year and I am stumped 🤔

    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated 👍

    lots of words, but no sheet. We can't see how excel"finds" a new supplier, so we can't tell what it's doing wrong. No details!!

    Will you please attach a SMALL sample Excel workbook (10-20 rows of data is usually enough)? Please don't attach a picture of one (no-one will want to re-type all your stuff before starting).

    1. Make sure that your sample data are truly REPRESENTATIVE of your real data. The use of unrepresentative data is very frustrating and can lead to long delays in reaching a solution.

    2. Make sure that your desired solution is also shown (mock up the results manually).

    3. Make sure that all confidential information is removed first!!

    4. Try to avoid using merged cells. They cause lots of problems!

    Unfortunately the attachment icon doesn't work at the moment. So, to attach an Excel file you have to do the following: Just before posting, scroll down to Go Advanced and then scroll down to Manage Attachments. Now follow the instructions at the top of that screen.

    Hi Glen, please see attached, I have had to remove many of the tabs and left a snaps for the month of May, the associated list entries are on the red tab.

    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Many Thanks
