Clean Function - Replace Special Character With Space?

Feb 28, 2013

I have special character that I removed with =CLEAN formula.

It was only one character which represents carriage return. It looks like one little square with question mark inside.

After I applied =CLEAN formula it disappeared, but now I don't have space between these two words.

How could I replace this special character with space?

Feb 8, 2013

just had 11,000 customer account arrive and they are all messed up!

I am working through all the email address's and lots are not valid ones, is there a way i can make some sort of rule that willl do the following

If ther is no @ symbol, in Cells A ( any of A ) it drops them to the bottom of the list, or anything that just splits them up

Eg

fWGHFUI@JHEGF.COM
EFHWHEF@WEGFIW.COM
EKFGWIGF@YTRQUH.CO.UK
HJGIWEROPQWRP@WEYIO.COM
ASFHWIEGFIUQWEFH.COM
EHFIOQH12.CO.UK

This would split the bottom 2 email address away from the others as they dont have the @ symbol!

Adding A Space Where The Cleaned Character Used To Be

Feb 20, 2009

I was able to get rid of the weird character [] with the =CLEAN(E11), where E11 had the problem character. but now where the [] used to be between to words the 2 words just show as 1. Example If the bad cell was just[]test the clean cell has justtest without a space between the 2 words. Since the spreadsheet is about 8,000 cells and has random [] characters is it possible to not just clean the bad characters, but add a space where they used to be all in one command?

Naming Sheet With Special Character

Jan 18, 2010

I have a userform with a textbox and an OK button and having clicked OK a particualar sheet is given the name in the textbox. If the character '/' is included in the textbox a standard Excel message appears explaining that this character cannot be used. On clicking 'END' on the message the userform automatically disappears and I have to close the file and reopen to end another name.

Is there any way that I could introducing my own basic messagebox which says 'The characters /, ? etc cannot be used' and on clicking OK the userform stays and you can try again.

Search For Special Character * (Asterisk)

Jan 2, 2008

I'm working again with a large Inventory Database dump into a workbook and in the past the company appended the * character to designate an updated price on an item(column C). Its rocking my world to sort through things with this character as you can tell. I'm trying to find rows that column C has a * in, cut, and paste them into another sheet called "Updated". I would even accept just how I'd do a simple "find/replace all" on that character and then I can just update my macro and be on my way Anyway this is the macro thus far and as you can see it would just cut all rows and paste them to "Updated".

Sub Updated()
With Worksheets(1).Columns("C")
Set c = .Find("*", LookIn:=xlValues)
If Not c Is Nothing Then
firstAddress = c.Address
Do
c.EntireRow.Cut Destination:=Worksheets("Updated"). Range("A" & Worksheets("Updated").Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row + 1)
Set c = .FindNext(c)
Loop While Not c Is Nothing And c.Address <> firstAddress
End If
End With
End Sub

The characters which needs not treated as special characters are numbers (0-9), alpha (A-Z) and special characters (@,-,%,$,+,=).

Excel 2003 :: How To Remove Characters To The Right Of Last Occurrence Of Special Character

Mar 30, 2011

I have a column of text where I need to remove all the characters to the right of the last occurance of a special character.

I think a process like reading from right to left, look for the first occurance of the special character, and return the characters to the left of this position.

If I can determine the position of the last occurance of the special character, I could use the LEFT function.

The SEARCH function is close. It finds the position of the first occurance of text inside text but it reads from left to right. I need to read from right to left.

Another approach is to examine each character one by one from right to left. If the character is not the special character, delete it. When the character is the special character, delete it and stop the process.

There is no consistency in the text. The total lengths vary. The number of times the special character occurs in the text vary. The number of characters to the right or left of the last special character vary.

I much prefer not to have the solution be some VBA because I need to share it with others who are even less capable than I am. We are using Excel 2003.

Trim And Clean Function But Formula Doesn't Work?

Jan 31, 2014

I'm coping and pasting data (html) into a worksheet. When I try to format some of the columns as accounting$, number, ect. They won't format. It looks as if there are spaces before and after the data. So I tried the trim and clean function but it doesn't work, so I guess the blank "spaces" are not really spaces.

It gets better...

When I do the same exact copy and paste (as html) on another persons computer, they are able to format just fine, and the "spaces" are removed automatically.

Why is this working on one computer but not the other? Is it a setting that my computer has enabled or disabled? If so, what is it?

Replace Empty Cells With Blank Space

Jun 23, 2008

I have many sheets in my workbook with many filled or unfilled cells... I want that any cell in my whole workbook should be filled with " " ie a space if it is currently blank (ie don't touch the cells which have some data) and as there are many cells in a sheet .. I don't want to fill them with spaces as the file size will increase... I just want to do this for cells A-1 to AB-200.

What is the way of doing this with a formula or programming ie without macros... (or is macro the only way?) What if I just want to do this to a sheet and not to the whole workbook.
