Copy Text After Character

Dec 20, 2006

I have a column list that I need to seperate. The Text has both a title and location separated by an = sign. The cells look like this...

BlahBlahBlah = Location1

I would like to take the text after the = sign and place it in the next column so that all that is in it is...


The Location varies so the RIGHT function won't work.

Extract Text After Last Specified Character

I have a cell in my worksheet with a fully qualified filename like '

I would like to extract only the Obviously, the number of characters is going to vary based on the filename. The find and search functions appear to locate the cell but not the substring in the text. The right and left appear to work based on number of characters and in my case these are varying. Also, there does not appear to be any function that can do a search a string from right to left.

Reading One Character Of Text

Apr 18, 2009

The following code reads text one character at a time, and each character is determined either to be a blank space or to be any other character. If it's determined to be any other character, then the character is added to the active cell. If it's determined to be a blank space, then the active cell becomes the cell one column over. The idea is to have different words written in columns next to each other.

The sample text file I'm reading from reads: "text file". The file has only those two words. One space between them. No space before the first word, and no space after the second word. The following code compiles and runs. BUT the result is that the word "text" is in column k, not A. And the word "file" is in column J, not b.

Stop Text At A Character?

Jul 4, 2012

I have a list of over 300+ email addresses. If there is a way that I could pull out the ".com" (Find & Replace: Which is not working in any format, Text, Custom, General.) then pull out the text from the right to left until I get to the "@" into another cell and drag that down that would make it so much easier. Is there a formula that will pull data and then stop at a CHAR code? @ =CHAR(64) These email addresses are all different lengths. (personal to corporate email addresses.)


Looking for something like this: Replace ".com", =LEFT(9) or whatever will take out the "moe10134@" and the ".com" leaving only hotmail.

You know how you can combine different cells and concatenate their values? Can you reverse that? For Example, I have this value "Yambao, Mikhail P." and I want to break them apart so I can use "Yambao" as a reference value to fill up other information concerning that name.

Is Nth Character Text Or Number

Aug 16, 2007

Cell B23:687968307=ISTEXT(MID(RIGHT(B23,3),1,1))TRUE
Cell B24:C8796B07=ISTEXT(MID(RIGHT(B24,3),1,1))TRUE

I'm trying to test whether the third last character (3 and B) is a text or not.

As you can see, the reslts are both TRUE, but I'm expecting to see that the first one should be FALSE, as '3' is a number right?

Likewise, if I replace the formula with ISNUMBER instead of ISTEXT, the results are both FALSE, but shouldn't the first one be TRUE, again, because the '3' is a number?

Have I missed something in the formula, or is there a better way of expressing this formula?

How To Remove Specific Text Before A Character

May 5, 2014

1) In any cell, I would like to remove "Area#xxxxxxxxx" (where x are random numbers).

Example : "INFO Log - [sys] Area#541185471Character#46545"

2) I would like to remove x characters before a word.

Example : 2013-08-28.txt@INFO

I would need to remove 14 characters before the character "@".

I tried to play with the LEN and RIGHT/LEFT formula but so far, I can't get it to work... The idea is to parse some text and remove the part in red (I was thinking about using SUBSTITUTE).

Remove Text Character From Cells With Numbers

I want to change the character ~ with . in order to be able to make them numeric values to be feeded to other functions. But REPLACE seems not doing the job so I've been checking out other options such as seperating after and before the character ~. Details are below. I've been trying to use this formula to extract values from a delimited database which I open with excel. The formula that has brought me close is =IF(ISNUMBER(E51)=FALSE,LEFT(E51,LEN(E51)- FIND("~",E51)),E51)


When I import the database, the figures above have originals as 14010.00000 & 3210.00000 but transfer to excel as above. As far as I have observed 9 character spaces are displayed & the DOT transfers to ~ for some reason. I need the LEFT section of the ~

Text To Columns - Separating Numbers From Character-strings

Feb 10, 2014

I have a field that contains rows of data, each made up of a Number followed by Text. The length of the numbers differ - sometimes 4 digits, sometimes 5 or 6. Similarly, the text differs by word-count. An example is

2546 Nags Head
75698 Dog & Duck
634 Crown

I want a way of dividing the numbers from the text (numbers in one column and text in another).

Standard 'Text to Columns' won't work: I can't use 'Fixed Width' due to the number-length varying, and I can't use 'Delimited' and [space] as it will then split all the text up word-for-word (concatenating them back will take ages as my list is 480 rows long).

Break A Long Text String Into 10 Character Strings

Mar 27, 2008

I have a spreadsheet that has a column of text that is always 10 characters long. There are 10 rows of text so there could be 100 text characters if all rows are filled. The rows usually will not all be filled. There will probably be blank rows between used rows. I have been able to capture the text and put it into one cell as one long text which is ok but I want to be able to break it up into the 10 character strings again, separated with a comma and space between each 10 characters.

This is the code I used to collect the 10 character text strings and put them all together as the variable "result". I used & ", " after ... Cells(r,17) which worked fine unless there was a blank row. If the row was blank it put in a comma and space anyway so I ended up with duplicate(triplicate) commas and spaces.

Private Sub test_Click()
result = ""
For r = 5 To 32 Step 3
'If Cells(r, 17) "" Then
result = result & Cells(r, 17)
Next r
Range("r5") = result

If Range("F" & i).Value = "" Then

Conditional Formatting - Highlight Cell Containing Specific Character Within Text

Jul 26, 2013

I have an excel spread sheet & I wish to highlight any cell that contains any of the following characters with in a string of text.

/ : * " < > ? |

E.g. a cell in the spread sheet containing the text "Is this a Question?" would be highlighted.

I have tried to use - 'Format only cells that contain' > Specific Text > Containing > for each of the characters and this does not work.

When I do this any cell containing any text is highlighted.

In addition there is formatting on any cell > 60 characters which turns the cell red and this works fine.

What would happen if (when I get the problem above resolved), a cell is > than 60 characters & contains a character listed above?

Does 1 formatting take precedent over another?

(Not critical to know the answer to the additional question, just curious - as long as it is highlighted one colour or another then no problem.)

Excel 2010 :: Increase Character Limit In Text Box That Is Based On Formula?

How can I set it up so that this text box (or any other similar shape) displays the text and retains its resize/wrap property?

This is done in Excel 2010.
