## Isolating Text That Occurs Multiple Times In Cell?

Jan 15, 2014

I want to isolate text on either side of dashes ( " - " ) that occur either 2 or 3 times in a single cell.

Example:

Apples - Pears - 99 - 100+ years
Bananas - 56 - 57+ years

In particular, I would like to capture the "99 - 100+ years" and "56 - 57+ years" text on its own.

I tried this " =SUBSTITUTE(A1, "*- ", "", 1) but it doesn't work

## Check Each Cell In Range For Value & Put Text In Offset Cell

Jun 7, 2008

I'm trying to look at a value in one column (Column A) and if it matches a set of criteria, I'm trying to change the value of another cell 6 columns to the right.(Column G) I've been trying for a couple of days now to get this working, but to no avail. I've tried to modify the code below that I've found on this site but can't quite figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Sub RatingsFix1SP()
Dim FindWhat, rngCell As Range, i As Integer
FindWhat = Array("BB", "B", "CCC", "CC", "C", "CCC+")
For i = 0 To 3
For Each rngCell In Range("A2", Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
If InStr(rngCell, FindWhat(i)) <> 0 Then
rngCell.Offset(0, 6) = 0.15
End If
Next rngCell
Next i
End Sub

To try to clarify a bit: If column A in the attached spreadsheet has a rating code of BB, B, CCC, CC, C, or CCC+, I want the Haircut % rate in column G to be 15%. It seems the code that I'm using changes the % rate to 15% if any "B" or "C" shows up in any part of the string in column A.

## Date When Certain Amount Of Text Occurs?

I am trying to create a formula which would display a date (prior to the computer's system time) when a certain amount of text occurs.

I have attached my workbook with an example and further explanation.

## Run Macro When Change Occurs In A Range Of Cells

Feb 3, 2014

I'm using this code to run a macro whenever data is entered/removed from a cell within a range. (two macros and two cell ranges).

[Code] .....

Now I need to do the same thing for a different cell range (E3:E52) and a different macro (FormatChart2). Do I need to make a new Private sub or can I add it into the existing code?

## Macro To Convert Numbers To Alphabet Letters & Sum Range

Sep 23, 2008

First my goal is to sum a row and column. For example i want the sum of row 1 a to row 1 g. However, I'm using a loop for an automated macro. So i want to be able to say something like cells(1, count), so during the loop count goes from 1 to 7 representing the letters in the alphabet. But I'm not sure how to do so.

Secound, in my vba script to pull information from specific pages i say "sheet1.activate" how can i had the sheet switching during the process to speed up the calculation? and last but not least,

If Cells(1, locd) = "2008" Then

When i run my script, i get a runtime error 1004 application-defined or object defined error. The weird thing is, i can move what line it is on and then the macro will run ONCE and then it breaks again with the same error for that specific piece of code.

## Excel 2013 :: Check Cell For Text And Return Corresponding Text In Adjacent Cell?

Jan 28, 2014

I have 2 tabs in a 2013 workbook. Inventory Receipts and lookups. One of the Data verification lookups I have is a drop down list in each cell in Column B (eg: Cat, Dog, Mouse) In the lookups tab I have another cell range containing the sounds (eg: Meow, Bark, Squeak).

What I am trying to acheive is, if B2 contains Cat, then return Meow in B3, if B2 contains Dog then return bark in b3 and if B2 contains Mouse return squeak in B3. Ideally I would like the formula to return the text from my lookup sheet (eg: 'Lookups'!C2,'Lookups'!C3,'Lookups'!C4). So depending on which option they choose from my animal drop down list .. the correct noise would automatically fill in.

## Extract Text Strings Within Brackets From Range

Apr 12, 2008

I have a column of data in the following format:

Hardware (somethingsmall) otherinfo
Hardware ( somethingdisplaced)
Blackbox item (somethingelse) other info
Service(aservice)

etc

I need to extract the data within the brackets allowing for additional spaces for use in a second query which will search for each individual line item in turn.

For some reason the query does not like searching for the raw data in it's current format so I'm trying to extract the key information for searching instead.

I can do it in excel by:

(Assuming data is in cell V36)

'in colum x
=FIND("(",V36)

'in column y
=FIND(")",V36)

'in column z
=MID(V36,X36+1,Y36-(X36+2))

in column aa
=IF(LEFT(Z36,1)=" ", MID(Z36,2,20),Z36)

I have tried doing this cleverly in VBA and failed and then ended up trying to enter this code in the cells within the VBA code and do it that way but I'm having difficulty in doing this also.

## Extract Strings From Range Of Variable Length Text

Jan 18, 2008

I have the following issue. I have a list of strings. Each string contains certain characters that are exactly the same for all strings, some characters are different making the string longer (in some cases). What I need to do is extract some combination of characters from each string. The strings look like this:

AB & CDE & FG & I mmmm yyyy.HIJK
AB & CDE & FG & II mmmm yyyy.HIJK

The part "AB & CDE & FG & " (incl. spaces) is the same for each string. The next part contains a roman count from I to VII, causing the length of each string to vary. The "mmmm" part contains the current month spelled in full e.g. December. This part differs as well, for each string. The "yyyy" part contains the year in four digits, e.g. 2007. The part after the dot is the same for each string again.

What I need to do:
- is to extract the month and assign it to a new string
- extract the year and assign it to a new string
- extract the roman number, translate it to a normal number (II -> 2) and assign to a string (or integer).

## Check If A Range Of Cells Matches Specific Text

Dec 19, 2008

How to check if a range of cells matches specific text.

Example:

A1 - dog
B1 - cat
C1 - mouse

I want the formula to give me "yes" if dog is present.

=IF(A1="dog", "yes", "no") is for one cell. However if I do it this way:

=IF(A1:C1="dog", "yes", "no") I get an error.

## Restrict Cell To Alphabet Only

## 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.

## Cell Updated Whenever A Change Occurs

Aug 22, 2009

i want to link my stock portfolio to a spreadsheet to make various calculations on historic performance.
my problem is that it is the same cell thats get updated whenever a change occurs, so that there is no history.

let's say i put the DDE-link in cell A1, i would like B1 to be filled with that value
and then when the value changes i would like B2 to be filled with the new value
and the next time B3, and so on.

## After Date Occurs, Cell Updates To Next Year

## Extract Text From A Cell

Sep 19, 2009

I need a formulla which will extract the data from one cell into three different cells, I have three diffterent syntax added at the end of the text, for example I have below text in cell A2, I need to have Office installed on 69 PC s Below are the IP addresses 10.109.69.245 10.109.68.109 10.109.69.416 10.109.69.213 10.109.68.62 10.109.68.97 10.109.69.124 10.109.68.96 10.109.69.116 10.109.68.34 10.109.69.171 10.109.68.57 10.109.68.91 10.109.69.249 {MS Office Issue} ~Excel~ *Client Not Reachable*

## Use Dynamic Formula Driven Text From Cell To Identify And Extract From Specific Cell?

Dec 21, 2013

I paste new data into a sheet of a monthly report I prepare. For this sheet, the # of data rows change (and is unpredictable) every month. I need the value inside a specific cell that dynamcially moves up and down based on the # of rows for that month (because it's below the rows of data).

So I made a formula to identify the exact cell # every month.

Example:

This month the exact cell is F255 in the "Refi" sheet.

So my formula in the "Summary" sheet cell A1 first finds the cell row # only (255) and since it's always column F, in B1 I have

VB:
="F" & (A1)

This outputs "F255" in B1, successfully identifying the target cell.

Now how do I write a formula in C1 to grab the value from whatever cell is named in B1. (For this month, the value in cell F255 from the "Refi" sheet)

## Check If Cell Contains Text

Attached is a spreadsheet with the example.

## Extract Numbers Only From Cell Containing Text Also?

Jan 24, 2008

What I want to know is this, can I have a formula that will extract just the numbers and not the text?

For example if cell B2 = 'Ref No. 123456'. Could I just extract the '123456'?

## 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.

## Extract Number From Text Cell

Aug 17, 2009

I have an extract from a call logging system; one of the columns is a description of the call (this column is extracted in Text format). Within some of the descriptions is a reference number which I need to extract (sadly this number isn't kept in its own field) - is there any way to determine whether a cell has numbers in it, and if so is there a way to pull them out into a seperate column? (preferably using a formula as I'm no good at VBA!)
