Count Cell Containing A Specific Character

Mar 3, 2008

I have a row of cells that contain a single letter: W,C,O.

I need to provide a count of the number of occurancies of each letter. So I have a cell that shows me the total W's, a cell showing me total C's and another showing total O's.

Whats easiest way to do this?

I know its not ideal, but on this occassion ive no desire to add and hide another column.

Returning Value If A Cell Contains Specific Character?

Feb 25, 2014

Essentially what I'm trying to accomplish is import a file from Quickbooks and determine whether it was a Credit Card, Check or Invoice based on the account number.

For example:

45-12345 should return the value CC in an adjacent cell because it contains the "-" character.
I0123456 should return the value INV in an adjacent cell because it contains the "I" character.
01234567 should return the value ACH in an adjacent cell because it doesn't contain either character.

I tried using VLookup, but I can't figure out how to write a formula for when it just contains a character, only if it matches it or is text/number.

Find Cell That Contains Specific Character?

Jul 17, 2012

Cells A1:A5 all have a vlookup formula that will pull one of the following into it:

1. The word "NONE"
2. #N/A error since it doesn't exist in the table
3. A text value that has the format 13.55.46.91

I want a formula that will look at these 5 cells and give me #3. That #3 value can only appear once in the 5 cells in any of those 5. The other 4 cells will contain either 1 or 2.

3 always has length equal to 11. It always has periods in those places. The digits do change.

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.)

Weighted Count Of Specific Segments In A Cell

Apr 3, 2009

I need to counting formula (I'm calculating weighted frequency of specific letters). My data is as follows:

A1 "lingual"
B2 "28"

The formula needs to look at the word in A1 and count the number of times a given letter (e.g., "l") appears in the cell (any position), and then multiply the result of the count by the value in B2. In the example above, the answer should be 56 (the letter "l" appears twice in "lingual", so it's 28X2).

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).

Replace Specific Character ONLY If Its LAST In The Sheet

Nov 27, 2013

Switched to Excel after using OpenOffice and I'm stuck on knowing what an old a 'find and replace' formula would be in Excel. It would remove a specific character (or word) ONLY if it was the last characters in a cell.

The old find and replace for open office:
Find: (.*)/$
Replace: $1

It's not that important now to delete a word, mainly the last slash '/' ONLY if it's the last character e.g. this data has 2 rows with a '/' as the last character

website.com/page
website.com/page/
website.com/page/page/

Running my old find and replace formula would remove the last slashes, but leave the others

website.com/page
website.com/page
website.com/page/page

Need simple replacement to the find and replace but a formula is also right.

Selecting Cells Containing Specific Character(s)

How to get Excel to select all cells within a specific column that contain a specific character. In this instance, I need to select all the cells which contain a comma...

Function That Inputs A Certain Number Of A Specific Character

Mar 23, 2009

I need to make a list of Part Numbers in quotation marks. If a number of digits of a P/N is less than 13 a number of space characters has to be added to make the string 13 characters long.

We have example P/N:
1234567890123
12345678
123456

should become:
"1234567890123(no extra space characters should be filled-13chars)"
"12345678(5 extra space characters here)"
"123456(7 extra space characters)"

Is there a function that inputs a cerain number of a specific character ("space" in this example)?

Delete Characters After Last Specific Character Occurence

Jun 11, 2008

I have one column with many numbers. Some have one dash and some have two.

Example:
123-123456-65
012-789546-1
98B12354-889

Is there a way that I can remove all characters after the last (dash) in the number?
Example:

If number is 123-123456-65
Then 123-123456

If number is 98B12354-889
Then 98B12354

If someone could just lead me in a direction, I might be able to figure it out. However, my code is elementary and most of the time, I record macros and the play with the code until it does what I want.

Count Number Of Rows In Specific Column Up To Empty Cell

Feb 13, 2013

I want to count the number of rows in a specific column up to an empty cell and assign this value to a cell. I don't want to count the total number of rows but instead I want the number of the first group of rows.

For example, column A may have cells ranging from row 2 to 10 and then from row 12 to 20, so I only want to count the first group.

The below code counts the total which is not what i need.

Code:
Sub test()
Dim Mycount As Single
Mycount = Application.Count(Range("A:A"))
Cells(1, 4) = Mycount
End Sub

How To Find Duplicated String Before A Character That Contains Specific Word

May 16, 2014

In column A, I have the following lines:

2014-05-15 02:08:43 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 02:31:37 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 02:37:19 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 02:37:20 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 03:07:19 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 15:01:37 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 15:04:46 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)

I would like to use conditional formatting to highlight cells which have the same first 16 characters (yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm) before the "@" AND that contains the words "CHANGE WORLD". Therefore, I'm looking for a formula I could include in the conditional formatting so I can easily find the "CHANGE WORLD" that occurred at the same time (minus the seconds, they may vary slightly).

number. name

and 150. Taoist

I wish to truncate the field so I have just the integer without the dot, space or word(s).

Tried Len, Left & Replace but they require a specific number of characters. Since the number can be 1 to 3 digits long, this doesn't work.

Dividing Output Of Sumproduct Formula By Count Of Specific Cell Contents

Aug 21, 2009

I've got the following sumproduct formula (which seems to work):

=SUMPRODUCT(--(ISNUMBER(SEARCH($B17,Product_Keywords))),--(YEAR(Invoice_Date)=H$3),--(ROUNDUP(MONTH(Invoice_Date)/3,0)=H$4),--(Invoiced_Amount))

B17 is a keyword to be found in the Product_Keywords range

I'd like to modify it so that:

ifthe cell in the range Product_Keywords also includes "," thendivide the sumproduct by the number of commas+1

Presumably I could add --(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(",",Product_Keywords) as one of the conditions,
but how would I keep track of the number of commas in the cell?
