Code for Automatic Entry in Excel

timer Asked: May 10th, 2013

Question description

I am currently analyzing an excel spreadsheet with online membership data, however, until the Gender column some of the cells are empty. If it’s at all possible, I would like to be able to write a code that searches male and female naming dictionaries and if the member’s first name matches an entry, to enter either “Male or Female” in the Gender column for that member. However, if the code doesn’t turn up a result to just leave the entry blank – this would be preferable over doing some type of true/false function from only using one dictionary to account for uncommon names. Input of any kind would be great, such as a language well-equipped for this type of task, instructions on searching through multiple pages, a skeleton outline of code, etc.
