Dividing Letters And Numbers String

Jan 25, 2009

A given string of some letters (from three to five, six) is followed by a single number (1-4). Then it ends, or is followed by another such combination, up to a maximum of, let's say, four.

Example:
xxxx1
yyy3yyyy1
xyzxx1yxz4xzx1
xxx2xxx2xxx2xxx2

What I would like to do is to divide a given chain of characters into the smallest chains which contain only letters and one number. To the examples given above, I'd like to receive the following sets:

xxxx1
yyy3 and yyyy1
xyzxx1 and yxz4 and xzx1
... and so on

Is it somehow possible to do it with simple functions? Or is VB necessary (which sadly I don't know)?

Remove Letters And Zeros From String

Oct 20, 2011

I have a list of about 1,400 numbers ranging in different lengths. What I'm trying to accomplish with a formula is to remove the single letter at the end of each number (not all numbers have them) and in addition to removing all zeros at the beginning of the number (again not all numbers have them).

Here is an example...say I have the following 5 numbers:

8014554
45678456
87451245
0008014554b
0008014554c

And what I need my formula to do provide is the following results instead:

8014554
45678456
87451245
8014554
8014554

So far I have started with the following =LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-1), but that will always remove the last character (number and letter).

String Extraction Where Two Letters Exist

Nov 13, 2007

I have a list of 3000 strings, all in seperate cells, in a column.

Within each string, are ( say 13 ) letters ( for convience) "A" through to "M" which are of interest to me

The 'letters' of interest occur either once or twice , or none within the individual strings. When a 'letter' of interest occurs within a string , putting a marker in a column on the same row is sufficient.

Using vba, I have extracted the cases where 2 'letters' exist within the strings, by using 3 nested FOR NEXT loops, with an IF test in the middle of

If (InStr(Cells(i, 2).Value, IndexLetter#1) > 0) and (InStr(Cells(i, 2).Value, IndexLetter#2) > 0)Then
and then put my marker in cells(i,3)

where : IndexLetter#1 is set in the outermost of the FOR NEXT loops as one of the 'letters' of interest, and similarly IndexLetter#2 is set on the next inner of the FOR NEXT loop . The inner most FOR NEXT loop ( i ) is the list of 3000 strings

I want to put a marker next to the string , when only ONE of the 'letters' is present in the string AND NONE OF THE OTHERS

Remove Numbers - Leave Letters In A String?

Mar 18, 2014

I would like to take the below strings and remove any numbers and just leave letters. Or extract the payee from the string. If at all possible, I'd prefer this in a formula.

Card Purchase WAL Wal-Mart Sup 320004 0532 WAL-SAMS CENTRAL LA
Card Purchase WAL-MART #0532 053201 308 N AIRLINE HWY CENTRAL LA
Card Purchase LEBLANC'S FOOD S 874301 209 S. AIRLINE HWY CENTRAL LA[code]....

Basically, (the first line above) I'd like to remove the words "Card Purchase" and any numbers...or preferably just leave "Wal-Mart Sup" instead of the full string. I'd like the product of the first line to match the product of the 2nd line.

Wrong Letters Or Numbers In A Text String

Dec 1, 2006

So for a program I am writing, the user inputs a text string of 200+ alphabetic letters. Only 20 of the 26 alphabet can be in this input (excluding BJOUXZ). What I need to have a macro or function do is check to make sure none of these 6 alphabet letters are present in the string, and also check to make sure no numbers are present either.

Also, I would love for the input text to be converted to Uppercase for all letter as it does this check.

Change Current Cell Value If Number String NOT Letter String?

Apr 7, 2014

In sheet1 I have a simple database consisting of 5 columns of data

Column A : Name ie James Jones
Column B : payroll number ie 123456
Column C : shift times ie 1245-2124
Column D : job title ie floor
Column E : comments ie A/L or 0600-1500

what I would like is some code that will go down Column E and if a 'time string' ie 1300-2130 is found then copy this string and paste into corresponding value in column C. If a text string is found ie A/L or Sick or anything like this then ignore and move onto next cell, loop this until all cells in column E have been checked.

Column Letters- VBA Command To Get The Letters

Nov 17, 2009

Is there a VBA command to get the letters, instead of the numbers, of the column of a selected cell?

I have to letter a list whihc means setting up a loop using character codes.

I may have to go into double letters so I am working on how I would set up the loop for if and when it gets past 90 and starts on double letters. so far the highest is the letter "U"

of course the easiest would be to pick up a column value as a letter

NT values do not get a number

A_____ _____NT###
B_____1_______C####
C_____2_______RMK###
D____ _______NT####

i am guessing the loop might involve some arithmetic test between the count and the character set 65-90. or maybe a mod thing.

Change Cell Colour VBA Based On Text String?

Oct 11, 2011

I need to change the colour of a cell using VBA based on the input of a certain word. I have used teh below code but it doesn't pick up different variations of the word

Dim cell As Range
For Each cell In Range("E2:E500")
If cell.Value = "Check" Then[code]....

This code works fine (i have put it into worksheet change) when I use "Check and Mark and Chase" but some users are bound not to use capitalised first letters and on these occasions the cell colours are not changing.

How to add something to thie code above to make it work for any variation of capitalisation?

How To Change Font Color In Portion Of Text String

Jul 16, 2013

I have a button (shape) whose text value is linked to cell A1. (In other words, if text in cell A1 changes, the text on the button changes). A concatenation formula exists in cell A1 to "join" together a combination of text and cell values. The formula in A1 looks something like this:

="You have "&B10&" records that contain errors."

I'd like to set the font for the "&B10" portion to be a different color than the rest of the text string so that it stands out from the rest of the text. Obviously this can be done when the text is manually entered into a text box, but when using a formula to populate the text in the text box, it's all or nothing. I'm hoping to find a way to embed a separate font color within the formula string in A1 for just the portion I want to change? For example, all text would be regular/black, but the numeric value generated from cell B10 would be yellow.
