Products are listed one by one with text within one column. I need to know what products and how many of them it has but the list can vary from time to time. After that I need to gather that information and add it to the next table that counts the products in certain groups together to a nice excel table and a tidy form ready to be printed out.

how to split a text value like "1/2" to populate into phrase "Holds 1 large, 2 small Suitcases"
Solved by X. C. in 26 mins
I am using Excel to centralize data (mostly text) in a single worksheet. There are several worksheets that are printable/formatted output documents that draw from the single data worksheet. The formulas in the out put worksheets reach into the data worksheet and pull whatever is written into the output worksheet. So the formula may look like this (='Data'!A4). I want to keep the column width the same (so the output does not exceed the width of the page), but I would like the output document to AutoFit the data (the formula results), and not the formula. The formula results might be several lines long. When I try to resize rows in the output worksheet now it resizes them to the formula (='Data'!A4) even thought he cells are populated with larger sets of data.

I have the following code which converts a text link into a clickable link. It then display 'URL' instead of the whole web address. However some of the rows never contain a URL and therefore are blank but my code still puts the word URL for the null records. What do I need to change in my code in order to ignore the null cells? 'Make URL clickable Dim Cell As Range Dim CheckRange As Range On Error Resume Next Set CheckRange = Sheets("Quote").Range("B2") Set CheckRange = Range(CheckRange, Cells(ActiveSheet.Rows.Count, _ CheckRange.Column).End(xlUp)) For Each Cell In CheckRange.Cells Cell.Parent.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Cell, Address:= _ Cell.Value, TextToDisplay:="URL" Next Cell
