Add Text Based On Part Of Another Cell Text

Oct 16, 2006

I have been working on this worksheet part of which is attached herewith. I would like excel to automatically enter Updated/Inserted in column B against Individuals' names as per the instructions given in column A. For example: As per instruction in A9, B13:B16 should show Updated. I have tried to use the nested if function, but it does not work as I want it to. Also as I am not used to macros or VBA codes, could this problem be solved with formulas?

Delete Row If Cell Contains Certain Text As Part Of Text String?

May 15, 2014

I have a column of data with letters in each cell, no numerical, only alpha. Now, some of those cells contain the letters "adj sub" as part of the text string in each cell. "Adj sub" is always at the beginning of the text string. As an example, a cell will look like this - "adj sub mhm". I want to delete rows whose cell description does not contain "adj sub" as part of the text in the cell.

Sum Based On Part Text Criteria

Sep 27, 2007

I tried to modify a sumproduct formula given previously by Kris which is to sum base on strings, to solve another problem but with no luck. My attempt without success is in BLUE column whereas the correct answers should be that in the RED column. Basically my problem is that if a condition is true, I want to concatenate the values of 4 cells with a space in between them.

Vlookup On Part Of The Text In A Cell.

Jun 18, 2009

I am trying to do a vlookup and am having soem issues. I have data like this in the cell i am using as the reference: "60030 - COLUMBUS, OH". The first column of the range I am searching would have "60030" in it. What i need to know is how do I get the vlookup to just reference the first 5 digits in the reference cell? As you can see by the formula below, I set the logical value to true hoping that it would find the closest value, but it did not work. =VLOOKUP(A7,sdoalign,3,TRUE)

Extracting Part Of Text From One Cell To Another

Aug 20, 2006

I have a column of cells with similar to the following text.

First Marine Avenue 18 1303 11 1

There will always be a final 4 groups of text numbers, each with a space
between, but each having different number of numbers (this particular
sequence has 2,4,2,1 - but others may be different, but always 4 groups)

The true text ( a series of Road names are potentiaaly all different, having
a sequence of words that may be up to 5 words long before the numbers start)

I need to extract the 4 groups of numbers into seperate cells, leaving the
Road name text in a singe cell. I would then have a table of 5 columns, the
first the Road text, and the next 4 columns being the group of numbers, which
I would then format as numbers.

To Bold A Part Of The Cell Text

Apr 8, 2007

I am creating a sheet with the cell information coming from different cells. I want to bold and/or underline a part of the cell to add clarity.

For e.g.
Cell A1 = "Trans X" (Name of the transaction);
Cell B1 = "System Y" (System where the transaction exists)
Cell C1 = "Type Z" (Type of transaction)

I want to create a cell which has
Newsheet.Cell (x,y) =
"Name: Trans X
System: System Y
Type: Type Z"

I created the String by reading and concatenating the values, but I am not sure how to add the formatting to a part of the string.

Pull Part Text From Cell

Aug 8, 2007

Consider the following:

Cell A1 has this text in it:

WT*495*001559369~G3**D1234567**XX**20070626*1740****DHLC*20070807~B4G*RX*1~C32*UDD**UAD~ITQ*05*3****20030711*12~N1*FF*LALALA*25*00802109480~N3*12A46 KRESSASLE

Is it possible to somehow filter, search, find, etc, and basically clean cell A1 so that in the end it has just G3**D1234567?

I made a search macro, but the problem is there is so much text that it takes 2 seconds per cell to do a find. There are 6 columns with 65000 rows. I assume if I clean up each cell and do a "xlWhole" instead of "xlPart" in the find code, it will be much faster.

A1 = WT*495*001559369~G3**D1234567**XX**20070626*1740****DHLC*20070807~B4G*RX*1~C32*UDD**UAD~ITQ*05*3****20030711*12~N1*FF*LALALA*25*00802109480~N3*12A46 KRESSASLE


A1 = G3**D1234567


Note that all rows do have a "~G3**" before the actual number I am doing a search for.

Hyperlink Part Of Cell Text

Jan 31, 2008

in order to hyperlink a single peice of text in a cell and not the whole cell I have created a shape with no fill or line but added text. I then hyperlinked it to a location in the workbook. When I set the Move and size with cell property I am not geting the expected result. If I resize a row well above that cell, the object isn't following the cell it wa placed in. I would be happy with alternative mechanisms for putting independantly linked text.

Finding Part Of Text Then Copy Value Of Other Cell

Mar 26, 2014

Here's the situation (an example):

I have sheet1 that contains the following information

Column A Column B
company1 - book value 0,5
company1 - earnings 0.2
company1 - R&D 1111
company1 - total assets 200000
company2 - book value 2
company2 - earnings 333
company2 - total assets 12

So column B contains only numbers and note that for company 2 I do not have any numbers on R&D.

I have in sheet2 only once the company name. I would like now that if column a contains the text "book value" to have the value of column B pasted in sheet 2 column B. Same for earnings to be pasted in column C. R&D in column D and if R&D is not present for that company then the value should say something like unknown.

Automatic Update Of Cell Text Based On Item Number (also Text)?

Mar 28, 2014

I have a column C with different text in cells (item's title). Column D - relevant description for each of the items. 100+ rows.

Now, unfortunately, often a spreadsheet with items is updated with many new items. So I get a new spreadsheet with old and new items mixed. I need, somehow, to import descriptions of the old items (Column D of the old spreadsheet) to the new spreadsheet from old spreadsheet. So I want excel to look for old items in column A of the new spreadsheet and, once found, insert a description in the column B from old spreadsheet.

Search Cell For Text String And Paste Text In Based On Finding?

Jun 29, 2014

I need to create a macro to do the following:

Search the activecell for a text string (a), and then either paste in text string (b) at the end of the cell if (a) is found, or text string (c) if (a) is not found.

For example, if the activecell has "AA/" in it, I want the cell to become "AA/01" (pasting in "01" at the end), and if the cell has just "AA" in it, I want it to still become "AA/01" (pasting "/01" at the end). The macro will be linked to a commandbutton.

SayI have the following in a cell :

Count Instances Of Part Cell Text In Range

Jan 21, 2008

I need a formula which I am using to count instance of sickness. I include a sample copy of my data which I hope will make my request clearer! I'm currently using the below formula to count the number of continuous instances of any code starting with "SICK" =(SUMPRODUCT((LEFT(C$10:C$37,4)="SICK")*(LEFT(C$10:C$37,4)<>(LEFT(C$10:C$37,4)))))

I would also like this formula to count any code starting with LTS as well (Long Term Sick). Due to the nature of sickness there may be continuous periods where both SICK and LTS codes are used, at the moment I can not come up with a formula to return the value I need. These columns may contain other codes but for simplicities sake I have only shown the relavent ones.

Macro To Automatically Convert PrtScr Image Based Text To Real Text In Cell

Mar 22, 2014

Programming Excel VBA Macro to do OCR (text recognition) from a prt scr screen capture image and input the text into cells. Currently my Excel file has a push-button, and upon clicking on it the macro pastes into Excel the current clipboard image I have created by pressing prt scr while in another program. The macro then crops the image to the region with the applicable text. I have to then manually type the text I see in image format into the appropriate cells.

the VBA coding to automate this? I'd like it to use the clipboard image and run it through OneNote OCR, after which the applicable text values are automatically entered into the cells. Ideally the code will first crop to the region with the desired text before it does OCR. If this is not feasible, it will need to incorporate a method (keyword search?) to hone in on the desired text after the entire prt scr image has been OCRed.

Remove First Part Of String Of Text And Keep The Second Part?

Feb 12, 2014

Is there any way to remove the first part of a string of text in a cell and save the second part?

The first part of the text string is a team code that has a variable number of numbers, capital letters and sometimes spaces. The second part of the text string is a variable number of words in a team name that all start with a capital letter and have lower case letters. Every line has a different team code and team name.

The original spreadsheet also has a column with just team code. Is there a way of using this column to "subtract" the team code from the text string to just leave the team name?

Return TRUE If Part Text Found In Cell Range

The formula has to include a range across each row (for each student). The formula has to search for specific text contained in the classnames, and then return the result along the same row.

Below is an example, which I hope saves OK in the thread. If not I'll upload an Excel file:

A B C D Results:-
1 class1 class2 class3 class4 Gg Hi Fr Sp
2 10m/Gg1 10m/Hi2 10m/Fr1 10m/En1 TRUE TRUE TRUE FALSE

Find Part Of Text Within Cell And Replace From Another Cell

Nov 24, 2008

I need to find the "x" in range C2:C44 and replace it with a value (variable) specified in cell I2

The catch is that I then need to be ablt to change that character when I2 changes.

Coloum C


I2 - Variable = B
*T’x’STATUS will become *T’B’STATUS

I2 - Variable = A
*T’x’STATUS will become *T’A’STATUS

But " *OFF " should not change.

I can change *T’x’STATUS to *T’B’STATUS but then I can change *T’B’STATUS to *T’A’STATUS

Please see attached example file as it shows it better than I can explain it.

Excel Text Search Through Different Types Of Text And Action Based On Text

Oct 14, 2008

1. Search an excel sheet "column" for a particular type of text and insert values based on that text (if found) in another column.

e.g I have column A1 to A10 with different types of text. I would like to search for the keyword "Risk is high" OR "Risk=High" for each cell in the column and insert a "1" if found beside it's corresponding "B" column. If not found, I would like to insert a "0".

So, if the text "Risk is high" OR "Risk=High" was only found in A6, I would like B6 to be "1". Rest of the values in the B column would be "0's", since the text was not found in any of the other cells.
