I would like to design a macro that can find a value within a cell in a colunm and copy a value in the row then count occurances of that value next time a match in the colunm is found on a different row, but also do this only if the date range in the row is within a specified range. So a multi-critieria search and copy operation.
To explain a little better here is a simplified example of my spread sheet that is in input for the macro.
A B C D E 1 PART NO. date in date out comp1 comp2 2 12-3 01-12-13 05-12-13 R1 3 00-1 01-12-13 05-12-13 X1 Z1 4 12-3 03-12-13 06-12-13 R1 C3 5 00-2 05-12-13 06-12-13 L2 6 00-2 07-12-13 10-12-13 L3 7 12-3 05-01-14 08-01-14 R2 C3 8 00-1 06-01-14 10-01-14 X1 Z1 9 00-1 06-01-14 10-01-14 X2 Z2 10 12-3 10-01-14 15-01-14 C3 R1
*some component fields will be blank in normal use.
So what I want to do is to search by "PART NO." within a specific date range and count the occurances of components, and output something like this.
So for date range from 01-01-14 >> to 01-02-14 serching part "12-3" the table on a new sheet would look something like this.
A B 1 12-3 2 R1 1 3 R2 1 4 C3 2
Column A lists the coponents found on the same row as the seach critria, in this example "12-3".
Column B lists the number of occurances of the components. This search is limited to a date range input by the user.
So what I can see is the components replaced and the amount of times replaced on a specific item over a fixed time.
*It is difficult to describe this problem without showing the macro output, but this is just an example for the purpose of explanation.
I know a bit of VBA programming and initially I started with an input box that asks for the part number and limit dates. Any help is greatly appreciated. I know someone can probably solve this in a 100th of the time it would take me.
P.S I couldn't attach the .xlsx file for some reason.
