If i had a column like:
ColumnA ------- NUMBER VARCHAR(50 BYTE) TIMESTAMP
I’m looking for a vba function that would work like so:
contains(“string to search for”, cell to search it in)
and if the cell does contain it (anywhere in the cell – doesn’t have to start or end the cell) then populate the cell (that uses the function) with “T” else “F”.
so in my example:
ColumnB ------- F T F
Also could I then use this function inside other VBA code like so:
If Len(A2) > 10 and contains("CHAR",A2) Then //do stuff End If
If they have to be separate functions (to use in cells returning “T”/”F” and to use in other VBA code), please provide both.
You want VBA’s
For example in a module;
Public Function Contains(Text As String, Cell As Range) As String If InStr(1, Cell.Value, Text, vbTextCompare) Then '//case insensitive Contains = "T" Else Contains = "F" End If End Function
=Contains("blah", A1) in a worksheet
