How to find and replace values greater than / less than a specific value in Excel?
Maybe, there are multiple data in your worksheet, now, you want to find all the cells which contain the value greater than or less than a specific number, and then replace them with another value you need at once. The normal Find and Replace feature is not applied to solve this problem, do you have any other good suggestions to deal with this task?
For example, I will find all the values which greater than 500, and replace them with 0.
The following VBA code can help you to replace the values which greater or less than a specific value at one, please do as follows:
1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys, and it opens the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.
2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module Window.
VBA code: Find and replace values greater or less than a specific value
Sub FindReplace() 'Updateby Extendoffice Dim Rng As Range Dim WorkRng As Range On Error Resume Next xTitleId = "KutoolsforExcel" Set WorkRng = Application.Selection Set WorkRng = Application.InputBox("Range", xTitleId, WorkRng.Address, Type:=8) For Each Rng In WorkRng If Rng.Value > 500 Then Rng.Value = 0 End If Next End Sub
3. Then press F5 key to run this code, and select the range data that you want to replace from the prompt box, see screenshot:
4. And then click OK, and you can see all the values greater than 500 have been replaced with 0.
Note: In the above code, you can change the following variables to your desired.
- If Rng.Value > 500 Then
- Rng.Value = 0
