Help with this challenging VBA coding


S

student

Friends,
I am writing to see whether you could please help with this VBA
coding.
The data below contains 10 SEC of totaling 500 obervations. We need to
choose 50:

For each SEC, choosing the five lowest DEBT among positive DEBT values
within this SEC, pulling together all these 50 observations,
then output containing PER, SIZE, SEC, DEBT, in ascending order of
DEBT.

Many many thanks.

I feel that this is probably a student assignment and as such I am reluctant
to give you code that you can simply copy. However, I will give you some
pointers to get started and perhaps others will give you some more or better
ones.

Copy the data to a new location (new worksheet)so that you do not loose the
original. Work with the copied data. It can be deleted later.

Sort on the SEC and DEBT column.

Find A in SEC column and then use find next within a loop to test each find
is > zero and copy each valid line of data to another new area. Establish a
counter in the loop so that you know when you have the required 5. Repeat for
remaining SEC.

The procedure could be done with a loop within a loop. The first loop to
incremnent the SEC by commencing with A. Use ascii code to increment. (ascii
65 is A.) and incrementing it until J is reached. The second loop within
would be the previous paragraph.

like what OssieMac wrote
find all the positive value with the same sec than copy them to a new page
after which sort them in the order using sort, the first five it the one
with the lowest dept.

I also wont give u the code lol so read yourself from the link below

find method :
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/de-de/library/microsoft.office.interop.excel.range.find(VS.80).aspx

findnext method :
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/de-de/library/microsoft.office.interop.excel.range.findnext(VS.80).aspx

sort method :
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.office.tools.excel.namedrange.sort(VS.80).aspx

I probably wouldn't use VBA for this. But, you can do the following
programmatically, if this list gets updated:

1. Make the following criteria range for each section you have
SEC
="=A"
2. Use Advanced Filter and the "Copy to New Location" option.
3. Repeat for each section
4. Sort each range
5. Use top n values that you need.
6. Concatenate ranges if desired.
