Copying Numbers Only From A Cell

I have a list of data in Column D of a spreadsheet. The cells contain a mix of text and numbers which is variable. Sometimes it could be "Internet 645" and sometimes it could be "VB456774" or lots of other combinations. Sometimes there are spaces, and sometimes none, and sometimes there is no numbers.

Is there a way to select Column D, copy out just the numbers only (w/o spaces or text or special characters" and copy to a new Column?

A demo could be:
Internet 645

So that once processed, a new columns would show:

(notice that if there are no numbers in a cell, i would like all the data below it to be pushed up when pasted into the new column)

Copying Numbers To CSV File Truncating Digits
I have a macro that copies long decimals (11 places) from an Excel file to a CSV file. However, the long decimals often get truncated from 11 places down to 3 or 4. I've tried a number of different coding methods to combat this, the most recent and most successful of which is shown below

Application.Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:...2008_alldata.csv"
Application.Goto Reference:="AllDataTable"
Application.Goto Reference:="R1C1"
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
Selection.NumberFormat = "#,##0.00000000000"
ActiveWindow.Close savechanges:=False

However, sometimes this method also fails. Is there a better way anyone knows of to ensure that the entire decimal is copied?

Match (text) Numbers To Numbers From One Cell To Another
I need the " solutions cells " to match to the " source cells " and return a " yes " or " no ". in cells d4:d10. Ex: #1 cell C4=01234598, it will conduct a search & match of cell A5 which contains the number 123, since cell C4 contains all 3 numbers from cell A5, then the formula would result in a " Yes ". The match has to contain all 3 numbers from the solution cells to the source cells.

Ex: #2 cell C7=67891234, it will conduct a search & match of cell A8 =901. Since cell C7 only contains the 9&1 from cell A8, it would return a " No " because cell C7 did not contain all 3 numbers from cell A8. I'm not sure if the IF, Match, Index or Count formula is the right one to use, they all seem to partially work, but still don't complete this problem.

Copying A Selected Cell In Col A And The Next Cell In Col B Into New Sheet
Basically I have a filtered list in colunms A to D. The user selects a cell in column A and I want to then be able to run a macro which copies that cell and the adjacent one in column B, into columns A and B on sheet2.

The complications are

Column B on the second sheet is merged with columns D to E so a straight forward cut and paste of A and B on sheet 1 into A and B on sheet 2 will not work in one cut and paste as it complains about merged cells. It would need to copy and paste A and then copy and paste B to avoid the error.

The row on sheet 2 where it is being pasted needs to be the first row between row 10 and row 30 where col A is blank (so it doesnt overwrite a previous copy and paste as they are basically creating a list on sheet 2 in those rows by runing this macro repeatedly). if there is no blank row then it should insert a new row at row 10 and paste into that

Copying Part Of A Cell And Pasting It To The Cell Next To It
I have just generated a report of current customer numbers for our company. Unfortunately it reports it as "162 (162)". No idea why the program does it like that because it now makes using VLOOKUP very difficult.

What I want to do is copy the "162" part of the cell and paste it into the adjacent cell to make it easier to manipulate the worksheet. All of the customer numbers are in column D if that makes a difference.

Copying Formula From Vba To Cell
I want to copy the following function via vba to a number of cells

=countif(i10:ah10,"does not comply")

i basically want row to do a a comparison from i10 to ah10, row 11 to do a comparison from i11 to ah11 and so on.

i tried this as a first step
Workbooks(WorkBookFileName).Worksheets(TabID).Cells(m, fc + 8 + 1).formula = COUNTIF(I97:AH97,"does not comply")

but i got the error

"compile error: expected: list seperator or)

and i tried this one

Workbooks(WorkBookFileName).Worksheets(TabID).Cells(m, fc + 8 + 1).text = "=COUNTIF(I97:AH97,"does not comply")"

and got the error compile error: expected : end of statement

i read some place to ensure that the reference is copied, one can use the following
wks.Cells(i + 13, 7).FormulaR1C1 = wks.Cells(i, 3).FormulaR1C1
but cant get through the first step, where i actually use vba to make the first entry

Cell Copying Macro
I need to able to copy certain parts of cells and paste it somewhere else. The data within the cell is presented like this City A/City B/City C. With an '/' seperating each. How can I copy just one part of that string using a macro(city a), and then keep track of it so that the next time I use a macro on that cell it copies the next part of the string(city b). I'll always copy the first City first so deleting it after it is a copied is an option but I dont even know how to do that.

The user insists he has not added any password functionality and I can't immediately spot what it is in Excel that is restricting me. In the Ribbon under the Review tab the Unrestricted Access is selected and the sheets I'm trying to copy from are not protected.

Matching Ranges In Different Sheets And Then Copying Certain Cell Value
There are two sheets: Sheet1 and Sheet2

Columns in Sheet 1 are the following:
company PERMNO number, dates, market capitalization (no data in this one)

Columns in Sheet 2 are the following:

company PERMNO number, ticker, dates, market capitalization

In Sheet2, there is a whole range of dates (between 1990 and 2004) for every single company, whereas in Sheet2 there is one or 3-4 dates for a every single company.

I would like to match the exact date/dates in Sheet1 in the range of dates in Sheet2 and then if they match, copy the corresponding cell value from the market capitalization column in Sheet2 to the empty market capitalization column in Sheet1. I also want that the company PERNO numbers match.

In short: if PERMNO numbers match, match the date/dates in Sheet1 within the range of dates for the same company in Sheet 2 and copy the market capitalization value to Sheet1.

Macro For Copying Formulas & Edit In New Cell
I need to be able to copy a formula from a row that is 180 rows before the current cell.

I then need to edit the formula so that the rows all start at 6. then i need to change the column references.

The formula that I am editing looks like this after it has been copied from before:

=IF('Entry Form Portrait'!$d870="m",IF('Entry Form Portrait'!$n870="a",'Entry Form Portrait'!$a870,""),"")

So I need d870 to be changed to d6, the n870 to be changed to o6 (current column +1), the a870 to be changed to a6.

Then this resultant formula to be copied to the next column and a6 changed to b6, then copied to next column again and b6 changed to f6.

Then all 3 columns to be copied (or autofilled) down 105 rows.

I tried to do it by recording the macro, however it only works for the first time that i use it, and then just keeps repeating in the same place. I need it to use the cell i have selected as the starting point.

Copying Many Cells, Drop Content Into One Cell?

Can I copy the text in multiple cells, and then drop the cell formating of those copied cells and drop the content into one single cell. Either word wrapping the content or soft returns for what looks like paragraphs again?

Copying Formulae Not Transposing Cell Range
I have a macro which inserts rows at certain places in a data table. This works fine. I then want to copy the formulae from the the row aboove or below (dependent on certain criteria). This sort of works.

I have is that when the row is copied, the row numbers within the formulae do not change relative to the new row. Eg if I copied down "=A6" one row, the formula still says "=A6", rather than "=A7".

I have tried variations of

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormulas

I also tried the AutoFill method (but this didn't work at all when I tried it with a whole row)

Previously, I would have selected ranges and then pasted on the active sheet. However, I am trying to re-educate myself in writing macros that do not 'select' ...

Copying Data From Merged Cell Into All Resulting Cells After Splitting
I have a spreadsheet that has been given to me by someone else, and unfortunately it has merged cells in it that are causing some trouble. I need to have a way to unmerge the merged cells, but for the data in the merged cell to then be copied into each cell that it splits into.

I've attached two spreadsheets - unfortunately I can't really attach the real one since it has research data in it, so I've reduced the size of the file and replaced some of the text. The first file shows how the file starts off, and the file named "result" shows how I would like it to be.

My real file contains some 10,000+ lines of data, and the merged cells are of varying sizes, with no consistency to the size, so I'd like a way to automate this instead of copy and pasting into every empty cell after I unmerge them.

Cell Referenceing (display The Value In The Cell Offset By X So I Can Bring The Numbers From Sheet1 Over)
Sheet1 is a list of names, then a few columns of numbers.
Sheet2 contains calculations based of the numbers in sheet1.

Each sheet from 2 on is names after the names in sheet1 column A...
A large cell at the top of each sheet contains the formula to display the sheet name:

So what I want to do now is...
in cell, look for the cell in sheet1, and display the value in the cell offset by X so i can bring the numbers from sheet1 over.

In plain english the cell would say like...
"look in sheet1 for "Name" then display the cell next to it"

I know to look in the next sheet its "=Base!B2" if i wanted b2 on sheet base.
I know to use "=OFFSET(Base!B2, , 1, , )" too look at B2 and go right 1 column.
But the issue is i dont want Base!B2.. i want whatever cell in Base column A that has the text that A1 has.
