Check A Column For Certain Characters

Feb 6, 2010

I have a column which cells are populated with codes like

BGW
3UG
WWU
1BR
UUBRG
WUBRG
7UUGGRRR

and so on. As you could see, we'll always have a number from 1 to 20 (or no number at all) followed by those letters (which can be only W,U,B,R or G). I'd like to know if there is a function to count the # of times a particular character occurs in a colum. In the above example, the "U" character appears 8 times. This would be nice to automate part of the filling process.

Just a little difference: since numbers always come before the letters, I need to treat a number sequence as a single value: 12GWW should not be seen as 1 then 2, but "twelve", like it was a single character. So, if I have this column...

URR
12WBBB
6UBG
12R
12WG

...then "12" appears 3 times. Nevertheless, B appears four times (3 on line 2 and 1 on line 3.)

Formula To Check Last 3 Characters?

Feb 12, 2014

I need to come up with a formula to verify that the last 3 characters of a text string match the 3 characters in the adjacent cell. So I am comparing in the example below Column B to Column A.

Ex:
A1 010 B1 3.010
A2 010 B2 1A.010

My spreadsheet is very large and I need to get this done without manually having to look at each.

Check If Celll Contains Certain Characters

Mar 20, 2007

If character or letter "A", or "B", and so on (until "J") is found both in Column A and Column B in a given row, then it is TRUE.

If no character or letter (from A to J) matches in both columns, then FALSE.

**Numbers are irrelevant.

Check If 1st X Characters Are Numeric

Aug 10, 2007

In my column of text strings, I have a multiple format of strings make-up. Below is just one of them I have to check that the first 6 are digits from 0 to 9, and it is followed by a hypen. If condition is true, the first 6 digits is the output (ie. 345678).

345678-S

=IF(ISNUMBER(--(MID(A1, FIND("-",A1)-1,1))--(MID(A1,FIND("-",A1)-2,1))--(MID(A1,FIND("-",A1)-3,1))--(MID(A1,FIND("-",A1)-4,1))--(MID(A1,FIND("-",A1)-5,1))--(MID(A1,FIND("-",A1)-6,1))),LEFT(A1,FIND("-",A1)-1))

However, if I were to continue doing this for other strings, I would soon run out of characters limit that is allowed in a cell. I wonder whether a formulae such as below is valid? Any suggestion or help for a shorter formula is very much appreciated.

=IF(ISNUMBER(--(LEFT(A1,1+1+1+1+1+1))),LEFT(A1,6))

Text Formula? Postcodes: Seperate The First Or First Two Text Characters From The Rest Of The Postcode

Feb 16, 2007

I am working on sales information which includes postcodes. What i need to do is seperate the first or first two text characters from the rest of the postcode. I have attached a small snipet of what i am working on. Currently i am using the =Left(A4,2) but this will give me in some case a numerical value aswell. For example E1 or G1 in the case of the sample attached. Is there a formula that exists where it will just return the text values in a cell and not numerical values.

Validate Cell For Text Length & Characters In Text

Mar 13, 2008

I have a cell (B2) I would like to apply multiple data validations to.

I know I need to use the custom formula option but don't know how to write the formula.

I don't even know if it is possible, but here is what I'm after

I need to make sure the cell is 4 digits long

I need to make sure the cell starts with a zero (Because the cell starts with a zero I have it as a text cell)

I need to make sure the 2nd number is not 0 if A2 begins with 5 (A2 is also a text cell).

Check If Text String In Cell With Other Text Is In List

Mar 27, 2008

I have a sheet in which some of the cells have two strings separated by a linefeed. I have come up with a cumbersome formula which will let me check if either of the two strings is a member of a list stored on another sheet. However, it fails if there is only one string in the cell, presumably as there is no linefeed for the formula to find. How can I modify the formula to cope with this situation?

There are also on occasions, three strings in the cell, but I can't seem to access the middle string with the formula. Simplified spreadsheet attached to show the problem. This must be formula-based, as we have a no VBA policy. If you think there is better way of doing this, please let me know.

Compiling Text With Certain Characters From Text

Jan 31, 2008

I frequently need to extract email addresses from huge amounts of text, like 40+ pages long, etc... I was wondering if a macro could be developed somehow to leave me with a stack of email addresses. I suppose the macro would have to test each piece of text for an "@" and a ".com" and then stack only those terms in a column somewhere. Any ideas on how to do this? I am not macro savvy AT ALL...

How To Add Three And Five Characters Between Text?

Jun 9, 2009

I've searched Excel's Help but still unsure how to do this. I hope excel experts here can lend me a hand...

I have literally thousands of words in a single columns column which looks like this:

absah
absen
absenan
absensi
abses
absis
absolusi
absolut
absolutisme
...
...
...
etc

My question is what formula if i'd have to enter to add three spaces between characters and five characters at every end of the word so it should look like this?:

a b s a h .
a b s e n .
a b s e n a n .
....
....
etc

Note i have entered a full stop at the end of the example above to make the five spaces visible in this demonstration (I dont need the period character inserted at all).

Wrapping Text - Max Characters?

Mar 27, 2007

if there is maximum number of characters in a cell, above which wrapping and the row height auto-fit functions will not work? I typed a paragraph into a cell and have the cell set to wrap and the row height to auto-fit but it does not display on print preview or on actual printing past a certain character in the cell. Even when I manually increase the row height, it still does not display.

Cell Will Not Display All Text Characters? !

Aug 14, 2008

I pasted in 1369 characters (including spaces) to a cell, and NO MATTER what I try, all characters will not print.

If I have the cell up for formatting on the function line, all text can be seen, but for some reason it cuts off the last sentance or more and will not show it in print preview.

I've tried all kinds of cell text formatting, cell merging, etc. with no luck. The only work around I found is to just have the "missing text" on the following row.

Extract Text Characters Only From A Cell

May 6, 2009

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.
