getting value from another column based on a status column, with a twist

24 New Member

I am wondering how to get a value from one column based on another, using visual basic for applications. Here are the criteria: The first column contains status and we want the next row in the list after the last row that contains "completed" .

The second column contains a value that I want to use in a chart. So, in other words, I want to automatically find the value in the second column that is in the row after the LAST row with "completed" for status. The records are in order in the worksheet. Oh, I gave it away, I am using Excel :-)

Thanks in advance for your time and help.

Here's a bit of a silly-looking little macro, which demonstrates a simple (though probably rather inefficient) way of finding the last "completed" in column C. To get the row after the last one, you could just add one to FoundCell.Row.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Sub aaaaa()
  2.   Dim MyCell As Range, FoundCell As Range, FoundPos As Long
  3.   For Each MyCell In Range("C:C")
  4.     If MyCell.Value = "completed" Then
  5.       FoundPos = MyCell.Row
  6.       Debug.Print FoundPos
  7.       Set FoundCell = MyCell
  8.     End If
  9.   Next
  11.   If FoundPos > 0 Then
  12.     Debug.Print "Last one found was at:"; FoundCell.Address
  13.   End If
  14. End Sub

I am trying to select a group of records based on a parameter value passed to the db from a web page. The value comes in as @Status and has a list of statusID's: (1,2,5,9) I've tried to use "Where table.status IN (Select * from @Status AS ValueList)" And also tried "Where table.status IN (@Status)" And neither worked. Any suggestions?

Hi, Can anyone tell me how the initial value displayed in Combo Box is determined when a form is opened? I am loading the dropdown from one field ("CategoryName") of a table, with "ORDER BY ".

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
