Parsing Text with Regex (Function)

Hello Everyone, This time, I have come up with another VBA code which parses the required stuff in the braces (.*) (assuming reader knows basis Regular Expression syntax).

If .Test(html) Then 'Testing if the pattern matches or not mStr = .Execute(html)(0) '.Execute(html)(0) will provide the String which matches with Regex RegParse = .Replace(mStr, "$1") '.Replace function will replace the String with whatever is in the first set of braces - $1. Else RegParse = "#N/A"

Hello Every One, This time I have come up with another VBA  trick which could be used as a replacement for traditional Index(table,Small(if(Column = Criteria, RowNum),nth)) constructions.

One is a Master Sheet which would contain Data in the form of a table having different Headings which could be used as criteria either individually or otherwise. Second sheets is an Extract sheet where data would be pulled from Master sheet based on Some criteria placed in the Extract sheet itself. here are some pictures of Master sheet layout and Extract Sheet.

Merging a particular Worksheet from Multiple Workbooks into one Worksheet (Skipping Heading Row, Hidden and Blank Rows)

Hello Everyone, This time, I have come up with a code which will merge a particular sheet from Multiple Workbooks in a folder, into one Worksheet. While doing so, it will ignore Row 1st i.e. header row, Hidden and Blank Rows. So before using code, make sure following things:- 1. Change fPath variable in the code to an appropriate Folder Path holding all Input sheets. 2. Make a suitable heading row to match with those in the Input sheets. 3. Actually this code will paste copy data from Current Input sheet and paste it beneath the data imported from Former Input Sheet. 4. If you want more sheets to be imported then you can simply put those worksheets in the fPath folder after getting Former Imported Sheets out of the fPath folder. It will avoid Duplication as Code pastes data in the next of the last filled row and Former sheets will not be considered again.
