Having trouble with this one. Searches seem to bring up every other variation of extracting info from strings except this.

I have cells which contain alphanumeric strings as below and, using a formula, I want to extract everything from and including the last letter to give A 2-3, B 3 and C 3-4 in the examples below.

Sub-base A 2-3

Sub-base B 3

Paving C 3-4

I've got a cell with codes, such as:

21ML,

43GKP,

etc.

I want these to look like :

ML21,

GKP43,

i.e. swap the numbers with the letters but keeping the order of the characters.

This is very similar to my previous post, which was solved. Now that I've extract the numbers, I need to extract the text for the specific work activities, for example 13Z or 9GGG. I'm assuming some variation on this formula:

=LOOKUP(9.99E+307,--MID(C4,MIN(FIND({1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0},C4&1234567890)),ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(C4)))))

is the solution, but I'm struggling with making the correct alterations.

I have alphanumeric characters and I have to rank them. Previously these characters were only digits (Using Rank function) and now some alphabets mixed with them. What is the function to rank Alphanumeric characters? They are like:

1A2240E01

210003004U

216000001U

499630001

463630001

400650001

I need a macro to delete only the alphabets which are entered along with numbers. Ex: 300ML. BY running a macro i need to delete only the "ML" and the number 300 should remain the same.

Range is For Rows: Entire rows

For columns: F TO P

The cell values betwwen these ranges contains alphanumeric such as 20KG,300ML,200M ...etc

Hence i need a macro to delete the alpha charecters for the particular range.

Is there a way of extracting all non alphanumeric characters from a single collumn?

After extraction, I just want strings with A to Z letters, 0 to 9 numbers, spaces and hiffens(-). All in lower case.

I am using the Concatenate() function to join strings from A1 and B1.

The result goes into C1.

How do I remove all the punctuation too?

In other words, I want to keep ONLY the upper and lower case alphanumeric characters....

I am trying to remove all characters that aren't letters or numbers from a string. Is there any way to differentiate between a non-alphanumeric characters and alphanumeric characters? I'm thinking of something like "ISTEXT()" that I could use on one character at a time. Or are there any wildcards I could use in the Replace function?

View 9 Replies View RelatedI can do this in Excel, but I don't seem to have a single example to hand of how, using VBA, to extract all characters up to but not including, the first space character in a cell.

View 9 Replies View RelatedI have a large column of text with multiple entries similar to this: PC3L-10600R-9-11-A0. I need to replace the "11" with a 13. However I have other instances where the 11 appears (PC3-12800E-11-11-D0 or PC3L-12800R-11-11-A0).

I have found that I can use SUBSTITUTION

{=SUBSTITUTE(A50,H50,I50,1) and =SUBSTITUTE(A61,H61,I61,2)}

to handle the specific instances but I'd like to have a way to combine this type of function logically in one command.

I'm trying to sort by a column with one to four digit numbers, any of which may be followed by a single letter, i.e. 1,2,3 4A,5, 10,11A,75,101A,600,705,1010B,1011A.

I'd like them to sort in the above order. I am only able to have excel 2003 sort all of the numeric cells first, followed by the cells with the alpha character.

I have the following text string.

What formula can I use to extract these results on the right?

Sample file.xlsx

I would like to parse a part number.

ab24s-12-g4a

if there is a "-#-" in the string, that is the value I want. If the "-#-" is not present, I would like to take the first number. Currently, as written in your first example, I am getting the first number - excellent and thank you!

In the sku, the first digit reprepresents capacity. If a second number is present after the capacity portion of the sku (i.e. "-#-"), that means that they want to order it filled with less than capacity. For instance, a carton of eggs and they want 6 eggs instead of the max capacity of 12. (i.e. egg12-6-z2z). Numbers after the second octet (i.e. z2z) do not matter.

It would be a number only in the second octet. If there are characters with it, the equation should disregard it.

Here are the scenarios, and what the formula should accomplish

1) egg12 --> currently returns 12

2) egg12-6 --> would return 6

3) egg12-6-g2c --> would return 6

4) egg12-g2c --> would return 12

Have many rows of alphanumeric strings. 2-4 letters followed by a variety of numbers, some spaces, and some additional letters. What I need is to return the first number after the initial 2-4 letters, everything after that first digit is junk. Thus, I would like a formula that takes me from:

AB23400 12 -> 2

CET25800 1 -> 2

NYT67300 H01 -> 6

HSRF49900 1 -> 4

I have this formula that extracts numbers from alphanumeric strings.

{=1*MID(A1,MATCH(TRUE,ISNUMBER(1*MID(A1,ROW($1:$100),1)),0),COUNT(1*MID(A1,ROW($1:$100),1)))}

However this extracts only the 1st instance of the numbers

In a string like 123avfbsdf4556.. it'll extract only 123.

My questions are the following:

1. Is there a way that i could get the result as 1234556

2. A way which refers to a cell where I put in a number and it'll extract those many number instances. In the above example, if I put the number as 1, it'll extract 123. If I put the number as 2, it'll extract 4556 and so on.

I guess this would require some modifications to the Match function so that it does not look at only the 1st instance.

I need to extract just the text from cells which contain both letters and numbers. There can be one or two letters, followed by one, two or three numbers. (For info, these are chemical elements and their masses). So for instance,a cell could contain anything from the following B9, B11, S32, Ca44, Mo100, I129, Th226, U238 etc etc. I know I've seen this done before, but I can't find it now. It also has to be formula based, not using VBA.

immediately followed by an arbitrary length of numbers. (with no spaces between alpha and number)

How can I extract just the numbers from the group of alphanumberic characters after the hyphen

and set it to a LONG variable?

I'm looking for a way to extract numbers from a string.

The string can potentially have as few as one number or as many as 25. Each number is separated by a comma.

Here is the code that creates the string: ...

What is the formula to be used to extract number from a alphanumeric string located at different row?

example:

test126test131test134

test127test132test135

Cell R2 contains this value: " Forecast Time: 240 Index A forecast = 9078.314". I want to extract the characters "9078.314" and put them in a different cell. The cell that it should be affected to depends on the characters "240". I believe I should use the MID() and VLOOKUP() functions but I get stuck at the very first step of extracting my data.

View 3 Replies View RelatedI would like to extract any numerals between the comma and colon. (Format is text)

Example: 8 Dec, 1:52PM (1 to show in another cell)

Format is always the same but date/day & hour may change. (Hence changing number of characters depending on day and time.)

Example: 11 Dec, 10:49AM (10 to show in another cell.)

In column M I have data that lists a number, then number of metres between brackets. For instance

Column M

11 (79m)

1 (5m)

22 (123m)

Basically what I want to do is to always return the number of metres without m, so the data between "(" and "m".

I tried to do this using the find and mid formulas, but I either haven't got it quite right. I'm only after a spreadsheet solution (not VBA).

Data in field A1 currently appears as below.

8/10

I want to extract everything to the right of the "/" in a new field.

The formula that I am using is =RIGHT(A1,FIND("/",A1)-1)

For some reason, I am only receiving a 0 in the new field and not the 10 that I expect.

What's odd is that the formula is working as intended on every other field except this one.

I have a column contains Postal Adress in more than 5000 rows. Column contains Door Number, Area, City and Zip code. I need to separate "Zip code" alone in next coulmn. Zip code (of India) will be in six digits like "600083" also some cases contain space in middle of zip code like "600 083" (after 3 digits). Is there any way to do this without doing cut & paste?

View 9 Replies View RelatedI have a column contains Telephone numbers with or without area code and country code for across the country (India). I need to extract the telephone numbers alone (neither area code nor country code). Telephone numbers will be 6 or 7 or 8 digits (not more than that). Is it possible to extract any set of numbers contain 6 or 7 or 8 digits continously? Some of the cases contains 2 contact numbers (2 set of 6 or 7 or 8 digit characters, between special characters will be there like slash, comma, space, hypen, etc.,

Column A in Excel has loads of numbers all in this format 971-417. I need to have each of those two numbers in a separate cell from each other(and without the hyphen of course).

Column A Needs to be: Column A Column B

971-417 971 417

In short, I'm looking for a quick way to put each number in its own cell for hundreds of rows. Are there formulas I can use to do this or does it have to be done slowly, one at a time, stripping the information from one cell to another?

i have a list of information, and from that i want to extract a certain piece from that information and out it in a new cell...

eg. 'KLM00506', 'KLM00409-10', 'KLM00821-9' etc

as you can see, the info is not in the same length

what i need is to take out the FIRST 6 characters and have the remaining to be in a new cell

anyone has an excel formula that i can use ? not really interested in code, cause in this particular worksheet, everything is at its' place, no code required
