Hi Scott, Youtube is blocked by my internet filter. Would you be able to post the video or email it to me? I use macros to remove the "mm" and arrange by size, but have to paste my data into the template file. (see screen shot) Also would anyone be able to tell me why sometimes a 1200mm door reads 1.2m and sometime 1200mm? Makes it awkward to find and replace. Notice the macro buttons on the right.

Formatting eCabinets Five Piece Door Breakdown with excel Part 2

In this video I will show you how you can extract the cabinet number from the cabinet name and put it in its own column.

To do this I will be using text to columns. I will also show you how you can use the find method to check for assemblies and extract the assembly cabinet number.
I will then show you how to use a for next loop to combine the text “Cab.” and the cabinet or assembly number.

Be sur to watch because I will also show you how to use the worksheet function “Trim” to remove all leading and trailing spaces that may exist in the text strings. This is a very valuable function to know especially if you are planning on doing lookups or other functions that require exact matches to work properly.

If you have not watched my video Formatting eCabinets Five Piece Door Breakdown with excel Part 1 . Be sure to check it out.

Here is a quick video on my Latest excel project. Using a excel user form to transfer eCabinets face frame parts into line drawings.

If you build cabinets with face frames then you probably spend a lot of time dimensioning the frames in the line drawing editor. Well in this video I am demonstrating my latest project. I have made a excel user form that will automatically format the board stock listing worksheet and copy the selected cabinet onto my clipboard. This will allow me to paste the face frame parts as a table in eCabinets line drawing editor with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Hi. Guys. I just finished the first video on making a time tracking application in excel.
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... A2cYsbVtvA
In my previous post, I gave you guys a workbook that I started on. In the intro video, I asked for any suggestions and/ or feedback. One suggestion was to make it look and act like an actual application. So I am starting a completely new program. You can download that workbook here. https://dl.orangedox.com/H2fsbMP7mMSixNaqY9Then click on the video link and follow along. Please let me know what you think.
