# Adding Numbers Separated From Letters In Multiple Cells

Jul 7, 2009

I have column of cells containing entries such as V1, V3 and V7. I'm trying (and failing) to come up with a formula to separate the numbers from the letters and add them together: V1, V3 and V7 would together give 11.

I can use the MID worksheet function to separate my numbers from my letters on a row-by-row basis, but I can't work out how to do the whole thing in one fell swoop. =SUM(MID(A1:A10,2,2)) doesn't work, for example.

## Split Two Numbers Separated By Backslash Into Two Cells

Nov 30, 2012

I have a spreadsheet that has two numbers separated by a backslash in one cell, like below:

F/P KR EVERYDAY TOWELS 6P (72)276SFT SC 015836

3 / 3
1 / 1
3 / 3
1 / 1

[Code]....

What I want to be able to to is separate the two numbers into a different cells like below:

F/P KR EVERYDAY TOWELS 6P (72)276SFT SC 015836
F/P KR EVERYDAY TOWELS 6P (72)276SFT SC 015836
3
3

[Code]...

Because I have about 50 columns, I don't want to use Text to Columns. Is there a formula or macro I could use? It doesn't have to be as clean like I layed it out (in regards to the column title) but I just to really separate the two numbers into two cells.

## Extract Numbers From String (multiple Cells) And SUM Without Adding Additional Column

Apr 10, 2013

i have data stored like:

col1

XXXX1244 50
XXXX1519 60
XXXX1244 50
xxxxx1111 10
xxxxx1519 65

the last 4 caracters are numbers. I need to test these numbers and sum the corresponding values them in a single cell without adding new column(SUMIF like).

so in the above example I need to sum all ending at 1244 or 1519, therefore the sum showed in the single cell equals 225

to extract from a single cell: =VALUE(RIGHT(D8;4))

I tried to use an array formula but it seems to crash if a blank cell is in the array

## Total Ranges Of Numbers Separated By Empty Cells

Jul 3, 2009

I have a sheet with a list of cost values and I need to be able to total each set. Each set begins with the word "COST" and ends with empty cells. Some sets have no values, just the word "COST"

There are currently about 500 cost sets, from row 1 thru row 2194.
Here is an example of what Id like to accomplish:

## Continue Number Series In Single Cells With Numbers Separated By Commas

Jun 10, 2008

I have the following syntax in B1: "1,2,3,5,6". and I need VBA to take the very last number out of that list, and increase by four in single steps. For example: before the code: "1,2,3,5,6" and then after it "1,2,3,5,6,7,8,9." The code must be flexible, though, because it will be running within another Macro, and it must work whether the last number in the list is 1 digit ("...4,5,8"), 2 digit ("...34,35,36") or 3 digit ("...111, 113, 114"). Those three examples would be changed into "...4,5,8, 9, 10, 11" "...34,35,36, 37, 38, 39" "...111, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117".

## Sum Cells Containing Numbers And Letters

Jul 8, 2014

I'm working on a function that will sum a row of cells containing letters and numbers. I am currently using :

=SUMPRODUCT((0&SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(B5:S5,"T",""),"TP",""),"TPE",""),"P",""))+0) as my base.

Right now the formula will work with T, TP, and P; however as soon as I type TPE I get #value.

Either way you get the point of what I am trying to do, however my cells can contain any one of the following combinations:

T,TP,TPE
P,PE,
E

## Conditional Format Cells Containing Numbers And Letters - Ignore Cells With Number Only

Jul 11, 2014

I have a column of numbers and want to make sure everything has been entered correctly from our scanning software. Basically, I want to automatically highlight any cell that has any letter in it (e.g. z12o2 instead of 21202 or R705 instead of 5705), ignoring any cells that contain only numbers. I haven't had any luck using conditions based on formulas like =ISTEXT.

## Formatting Cells For Both Numbers And Letters

May 15, 2013

I need to format a column of numbers so that it will sort alphanumerically.

All the numbers have 4 digits, and some of them have an extra letter on the end eg A B C

How can I custom format the column so that I get the numbers in order and the letters in sequence with them?

## Split Cells Based On Letters Vs. Numbers

Mar 3, 2009

I have a column in one of my spreadsheets that I would like to split. There's currently not anything that can be used as a delimiter, nor can I use fixed width. the cells in question start with numbers and end with letters.

## Split Cells Based On Letters And Numbers?

May 20, 2013

I have an excel sheet here with the data as

1.0 Develop Vision and Strategy
1.1 Define the business concept and long-term vision
1.1.1 Assess the external environment
1.1.1.1 Analyze and evaluate competition
1.1.1.2 Identify economic trends
1.1.1.3 Identify political and regulatory issues
1.1.1.4 Assess new technology innovations
1.1.1.5 Analyze demographics
.... etc

I need to split this into two columns column A should contain 1.0 and column B should contain Develop Vision and Strategy . Ex: 1.1.1.2 Identify economic trends in column A then column B - 1.1.1.2 column C - Identify economic trends.

## Difficulty With IF Function For Cells Containing Both Numbers And Letters?

Feb 1, 2013

I have a sheet with part numbers, costs and wish to add varying number to the cost in each row, based on a certain aspect of the part number:

A
B
C

[Code].....

In the example, 01/1X/2X/3X are the differentiating aspects of the part number. To rows in column A containing 01 (preceding the dash) I want to add nothing, 1X+.75,2X+1.5,3X+9.

I have researched the nested IF formula and can use it in a test as long as column A contains either numbers or letters. The problem I have is because there is both numbers and letters, the logical argument won't validate "if true". Here is my formula (omitting my attempts with parenthesis etc. around the letter in the logical argument):

=IF(IF(A1=1X,B1+.75,IF(A1=2X,B1+1.5,IF(A1=3X,B1+9,B1)))

## List All The Combinations Of A Group Of Cells Containing Letters, But Not Numbers

Feb 9, 2008

I have 7 cells containing strings but not numbers on a row.

Now I want to list out all the combinations of drawing out 3 cells out of these 7 cells while the remaining cells that haven't been drawn out could also be listed out one column next to the drawn cells.

For example, I got 7 cells like this.

A B C D E F G (each letter in ONE cell)

And I want to list out all the combinations like this:

ABC DEFG
ABD CEFG
ABE CDFG
ABF CDEG

etc.

For more details, please refer to the attached sample (an .xls file being zipped).

## Lookup Multiple Values In A Single Cell (separated By Commas) And Then Return The Values To A Single Cell (also Comma Separated)

Jan 7, 2009

If I have, in one cell (call it D1):

EH,DR,HU

and in a lookup table on another sheet:
A B
1 ED T
2 EH F
3 DR G
4 HU H
5 SE E
6 YU E

I need to be able to lookup the values in D1 on the table and return the values in column B to a single cell (say E1), also comma separated...

eg...

## Splitting Numbers Separated By A Space Automatically?

Jul 27, 2009

i have a list of customer codes each seperated by a space. In the column next to them i have a percentage. (see attached file before tab). I would like to be able to split the cell of customer codes and transpose them so that there is one cell per customer code with the appropriate % applied (please see attached file after example tab).

At the minute a manual process is completed of sorting in length order, using the text to column function then copy paste and transpose, then copy the % in. Its quite manual process, is there an easier way?

## Separate Numbers From Characters That Are Separated By Comma

Feb 17, 2010

For example the cell contains 1,M2,M7,M1,M8:2,M15,M9,M4,M5:3,M3,M6,M14,M11,M12:4,M10,M13 and I need to create M1, M2 , M3 ..etc columns and attach the coresponding number to each one of them. For instance M2,M7,M1,M8will get 1 and so forth and so on. I was acutally thinking using the Notepad to replace the , with a TAB space and paste them back in to my data set and create some IF statements. On the other hand running VBA scrip would make it even easier. However I would preffer to use a function (that I am not 100% familiar with) and leave the VBA scrip out of the question for the moment.

## Seperate Cells By Adding Null Line According To Numbers

Jul 13, 2009

I am looking for a time saver macro,pretty easy to make i guess,as the theory is not difficult...but i am too newbie to make it. So i have an xls that has like 20k lines on Column A!And i have to seperate the numbers. I count the first 4 digits and I have to do it by adding a cell between them.

Example :
27289802
27289902
27289915
27289915
27290202
27290302
27290316..................

## Adding Multiple Cells From Multiple Sheets With Sumif Function

Jan 20, 2009

I'm trying to put together a spreadsheet that tracks disc capacity increases, affected by any incoming projects. I've managed to do so for one project, but would like to for up to 10. The way i've designed the solution (i'm sure there are far more elegant ways, but hey) is thus:

A forecast worksheet keeps track of a grand total, taking information from sheets P1 -> P10 (being projects 1 to 10). I am unable to figure a way to add up all the increases from all 10 project worksheets with one succinct formula. What I use so far is: ='P1'!C83+SUMIF('P1'!E82,"=2009 - Q1",'P1'!D82) ..................

## Find Number In A Cell With More Than 2 Numbers Separated By Comma

Oct 7, 2006

When the entry in a cell is of the format e.g 3,4 is there any way to find the value 3 or 4 in that cell?

Attempts like:

Cells(i, 1).Value = variable (e.g variable=3)

or

Set cell_found = Cells.Range("A1:A10").Find(variable, lookat:=xlWhole)

do not find the cell with the 3 (or 4). The above work fine when 3 or 4 are alone in the cell. Is there anyway to find these values in the cell?

## Extract Numbers And Text From Listbox Separated By Delimiter

Feb 14, 2008

I have a listbox populated with a number followed by description. How do I write code to extract the number and description to different cells. Listbox example: "1234ES - Project Description". Now I want "1234ES" in one cell and "Project Description" in cell left of number.

## Average Numbers In Table Containing Numbers And Letters?

Jan 27, 2012

I have a spreadsheet wtih a number of rows that contain answers to different criertia in each column.

The row may therefore have cells that either have numbers or letters.

Column A will be the title of the row.

I want to write a function to find the average value of the numbers in any row with title 'x'.

So it would look down column A, and look for those called 'x', and then average all the numbers across all those rows.

I have tried to use =averageif, but I think the fact there are letters in the cells being assessed (which I just want to be ignored) creates an error.

## Choose Random Number Out Of Numbers If They Are In One Cell Separated By Coma

Mar 22, 2009

I am curious can we chose random number out of numbers if they are in one cell separated by coma

Example:
*A111, 12, 14, 18, 19

Is there any formula so Random number can be selected from cell A1

## Excel Has Stopped Adding Numbers When Extending Formula To Adjacent Cells?

Nov 16, 2013

This is what I am using:

=VLOOKUP(\$A5,TEAM!\$B:\$MZ,23,FALSE)

When I select the cell formula extension button thing and drag it to the right, the formula copies exactly into the next cell. If I select multiple cells starting from 19-23 and then drag, excel just repeats the formula over, (19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 19, 20...) This is seriously frustrating as I have to click into the formula bar on each cell and change the value of the column lookup.

I can't keep going manually as I need to go to about 300 cells...
