## Extracting Numbers From Text And Turning The Numbers Into Rows Of Data

Feb 23, 2010

The format of the text in which I need to extract numbers is as follows:

23411268 - 23411270

Need to extract the following:

23411268
23411269
23411270

These numbers have to be listed in three seperate rows.

## Extracting Phone Numbers From Text String Variation In Preceding Text

Mar 29, 2013

I'm pulling phone numbers out of text strings. There is text string ("Office:") indicating that the number following is an office number (the number that I need). MID and FIND take care of this. There are sometimes two instances of office numbers in single text string, so adding a second column using the third argument of FIND lets me start another search past the first instance of an office number. We have a bunch of office numbers with the qualifier "(Text)" after the original "Office" but before the phone number. How do I catch these ones?

## Extracting Numbers :: Pull Numbers From Another Column

Oct 24, 2007

I'm trying to pull some numbers from another column. I want to pull the numbers that have an X separating them like 7X125, 48X192, and 27X90.

Example:

FA, VF-2000-3-7X125-18-A, AFS
FA, VF-2350-48X192-6-RGB, FC
FA, VF-2020-27X90-18-A,RFI, FEX, ACP, 2IT

## Extracting Numbers From Text

Jun 13, 2009

I need to separate text information from a cell into 3 columns (W,9-8). The first letter I know how to extract. The problem is to extract the number in the middle (1 or 2 digit) between "," and "-" and also the last number. For the last number I could use right() function but the problem is that number could be 1 or 2 digits so I can not specify in advance so formula would have to extract the last number till "-". Anyone knows how to do this?

## Extracting Numbers And Text

Mar 6, 2009

I need help extracting numbers from text. In column A, I have a list containing entries like this:

0005 Nurseries — propagation and cultivation of nursery stock
0016 Orchards — citrus and deciduous fruits
0034(1) Poultry Raising
0034(2) Sheep Raising and Hog Farms
0035 Florists — cultivating or gardening

The list goes on for about 800 rows.

In column J, I have this forumula:

{=LEFT(A1,MATCH(2,1/ISNUMBER(MID(A1,ROW(A2:A100)-ROW(A1),1)*1)))}
It works great, except the result includes the left parenthesis: for example, J3 = "0034(1". Is there a way to obtain just the numeric value ("00341")?

Also, is there another formula I can use in column K that will do the opposite and extract only the text? For example: K1 = "Nurseries — propagation and cultivation of nursery stock" and K3 = "Poultry Raising".

## Extracting Numbers From Within Text

Is there any other/better way? ...

## Extracting Numbers From Text And Then Adding Together

Oct 28, 2006

I am using Excel to collate the averages for my cricket team. All the players are listed in column A, followed by their scores for each individual game throughout the year and ending with a total runs column for the season.

My problem arises when I have to give an indication that a player scored runs but was "not out", which impacts on the overall averages because a player who is not out is credited with the runs scored but not charged with an innings. So a player who made 15 not out is credited with "15no" in my workbook.

As a simple example: Player's name (Barry Smith) appears in A1, then his five scores: 23, 15no, 35, 125no, 2 in cells A2:A6. SUM(\$A2:\$A6) entered in A7 ignores the cells that also include text (the "nos") and gives me a total of 60. Is there a formula I can enter in A7 to disregard the "nos" and just read the digits in those cells to come up with the grand total of 200? The run totals can be 1, 2 or 3 digits and I can split the "no" from the number (i.e. "15 no" instead of "15no") if this makes things easier.

## Extracting Both Numbers And Text From A String

Jun 21, 2007

I have a woorkbook where I have a cell that has the following apperance:

12345678-ABCDEFG

The numbers can vary in length and as well as the text. What I am trying to do is to split this cell into to columns. Column 1 shows the account number, Column 2 should show the Text and the "-" sign should not be in any of the columns ie it should look something like this

Column1 Column2
12345678 ABCDEFG

I have found a useful function for the first part thanx to Mikerickson
URL:Extract Numerical Data

Function midNumber(inputStr As String) As Double
Dim i As Long
For i = 1 To Len(inputStr)
midNumber = CDbl(Val(Mid(inputStr, i)))
If midNumber <> 0 Then Exit Function
Next i
End Function

But how do i seperate the text and how do Crete a macro that would loop through some 2000 rows and create a column A and B from Column A?

## Extracting Specific Number From Text Containing Other Numbers

Apr 27, 2007

I have a text field which contains multiple numbers ( reference #s and phone #s). I need to extract the reference # which will be either a 7 or 8 digit number. That number will not fall in any particular place in the string.

## Extracting Numbers From Text Using Macro Or Excel Functions

Dec 10, 2012

I am trying to extract values from a text. I used macro to solve the problem. I was able to extract the numbers however i am trying not to extract all of the numbers in text. For example as you can see below, i am trying to get only 22.99 The only unique thing here can be \$ sign i believe. I need to put a criteria that selects the number right after \$ sign and extracts 5-6 decimals after that.

**work lamp/desk light led;orion8879 final price: \$22.99 (store)**
this is the text in a cell and i only need 22.99 not 8879)

## Extracting Strings Of Text From Columns Of Data(text)

Apr 23, 2007

What I have is a column of data(text) which contains amongst all the text three strings of text in ever cell in the column which I require copying into three adjoining cells

The data I require is :-

(a) The persons name which is always after the word ‘Requester’ e.g. Requester Steve Robinson

(b) Their office location which is directly after the persons name and is in brackets e.g. (Newcastle User)

(c) The Approving persons name which is preceded by ‘Approved by’ e.g. Approved by Christine Hunting

See examples 1 & 2 below

Example 1

CR0/CRZ3651 Requestor Steve Robinson (Newcastle User) Tel: 01234 798157 Approved by Christine Hunting

Please install and configure 2 Ultra 2s (typhoon and lancaster) for use as ARTE workstations. These workstations require Solaris 2.5.1 plus the same patches as before

Example 2

CR0/CRZ3118 Requestor Doug Cunningham (Newport User) Tel: 0114 9881480 Approved by John Smithers

Please provide support to set up Cisco 2691 Router and PIX-506E Firewall to enable external connection of a remote terminal for project work.

As you will appreciate the text in the cells is of non standard lenght and the three pieces of information can be located virtually any where in the text

## Extracting Data From Every 3rd Column And Appending In Single Column

Mar 11, 2013

Macro for a repetitive task. I have data in every 3rd column (max of 11 columns) that I want to extract and append the data in column A in sheet 2. The data contains some blank cells and I'd like to remove them also.

I've attached an example in this workbook : tractdata.xlsx

## Extracting Data From This Text Format

Aug 15, 2008

I have a text file with a long list of data that simply needs to be extracted under separate columns in excel. Below is one sample out of a long list. Here is sample data and the format of the text ...
-----------------------------------------------------------
ABC MORTGAGE LLC
232 23RD ST STE A
BAKERSFIELD, CA 93301
KERN County

Title II
Approval Date: Dec 08, 2007 [11 Areas Approved for Business]
HECM: No Originates 203K: No
Telephone: (343) 633-1234 FAX Number: (343) 632-1330
E-Mail Address: chadlow3@aol.com
------------------------------------------------------------

In excel I need to have these columns, Company Name, Address, Phone, Fax, and Email. I need to pull the data out of the text file automatically and insert it into these columns. The other information in the sample such as approval date is not needed. How do I do this?

## Extracting Data From A Text String

Sep 8, 2009

I have a few hundred rows of text in the fomat below: 1.23456 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. The “x’s” represent text which is unique to each row. what the formula I need to extract the number (1.23456) at the start of the string? To complicate things the number may be reported to any number of decimal places, so the formula needs to be able to extract the first block of digits at the start of each row and report it as a number that can be used in calculations.

## Extracting Data Between 2 Characters In A Text String

Dec 14, 2013

I have the data string below:

Career:25: 1-0-2 \$13,765

I would like to extract the 1 between the : and - and as a seperate extraction would like te 2 between the - and the \$ I have tried a few things but end up with the - as the length of the data changes

## Extracting Text (Exported Data) From A Cell

Mar 13, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where the data held in column A is an export from another system and the exported data looks like this:

??????? Stn ??????? ??????? ??

What i would like to be able to do is to split out the data in column A so that the text before the 'Stn' (but including Stn) are shown in column C with text after 'Stn' is shown in column D. i have looked at using =LEFT, =MID or =RIGHT with =FIND but the problem i have is that the text prior to the letters Stn could be one, two, three or four words and the text after could be similar.

## Extracting URLs From Data In Column?

Jul 24, 2012

I am having problems extracting URLs from data in Column (column A) and displaying them in Column B. I watched 'MrExcel's Learn Excel #664 - Extracting Links' on youtube [URL] (about 2.40 is where the final code is displayed) and it is the perfect solution with the following code:

Sub GetLinks()
For Each hl In ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks
Cells(hl.Parent.Row, 2).Value = h1.Address
Next hl
End Sub

However when i go to run the macro in Office 2007, I receive an error: runtime error 424 object required, and the 3rd row is highlighted when i hit the debug button. This is actually my first time using VBA but as far as I can tell, I replicated the exact same code which is supposed to populate urls in column B.

## Extracting Rows Of Data Based On A Cells Text?

Jul 9, 2014

one of my suppliers can only provide me with a basic .xls product list as shown in the attached test sheet.xlsx.

Is it possible to create and run a macro from test sheet.xlsm that will extract data from test sheet.xlsx, specifically from below the heading on row 64 down to and above the heading on row 123 and paste into the (new) worksheet in test sheet.xlsm

This sheet is updated daily and all the heading rows are constantly fluctuating as products are sold and added.

I can do this manually easy enough but if there's any way that this can be automated

## Excel 2011 :: Extracting Data That Is Text Based (Mac)

Jul 26, 2014

I have a workbook with 2 sheets.

Sheet 1 will act as a summary for sheet 2, showing only the last 5 entries from sheet 2.

Sheet 2 is based on football results of a season which will have a total of 34 league games plus cup games.

Sheet 2 has 4 columns:

Game Number Home Team Result Away Team
1 United 2-0 City
2 Sportive 4-2 Uniao
3 Real 1-0 Ateltico
4 Villa 1-3 City
5 United 2-1 Real
6 Atletico 0-0 Villa

So sheet 1 will show the last 5 results as the season progress's and new data is added.

I have been able to extract column 'GAME NUMBER' using the following formula:

=INDEX('Back end 1'!A:A,MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307,'Back end 1'!A:A)-ROWS('Back end 1'!A2:A\$6)+1)

I am struggling to find a way to pull the last 5 data that is text based.

I am using Excel Mac 2011.

## Extracting Source Data From A 'text-only' Pivot Table

Nov 29, 2007

I work in my Client's office and assist in settling construction disputes. Part of this work is to browse/search their server for documents that may assist in strengthening their case.

During this review I have found an excel document which is a text-only version of a pivot table, ie someone has done a copy, paste special, values into this sheet. I need to extract the original source data from this table back into the list format, as the original source of the data cannot be located

The row titles on the left are activity descriptions, the column headers are dates and the data in the body of the table is hours. As an idea of size the data is spread over 213 columns and 45 rows. Their are more blank cells in the table than entries.

What I would like to do is create the data in it's original form ie

Column A; Date
Column B; Activity Description
Column C; Hours

and have a separate row for each instance of an entry of hours from the pivot table.

## Making Sure Numbers In Column Are Formatted As Numbers And Not As Text

Jun 27, 2013

I'm working on a spreadsheet with about 400 rows and 10 columns. All the numbers in the columns are formatted as text, which doesn't allow me to use AutoSum. I have selected the cells and formatted them as number with no decimals, but AutoSum still doesn't work because the formatting hasn't changed and they're still formatted as text. I know if I double click each cell, the cell changes the format from text to number, but that will take a lot of time to change 400 cells in each of the 10 columns. What can I do to quickly reformat the cells from text to number?

What I need is a formula (Not a VBA), is to reconcile both sheet2 and sheet1 ensure that the codes appearing for each position number in sheet1 gets updated based on the codes for each position number appearing in sheet2. So, for instance, the code for pos #34501A should be changed from 3200 to 9100 in sheet1.

The only issue with sheet2, though, is that the column number for position number could be different each time new data gets copied into sheet2 (thought the header information stays the same). I know that it can be done via Vlookup if the place of the column doesn't change each time, but I just

How to locate the correct column and row in a range of cells to search and then extract information based on certain conditions.

## Extracting Numbers From Alphanumeric Strings (unite The X Amount Of Numbers)

Aug 16, 2008

Is there a way either by VBA or manually (preferably both, if possible) to actually unite the X amount of numbers that are in a cell given the contents is alphanumeric? I'll give you the following examples to see if you can understand what I' referring to?

DATA output should be
asd67,h876 --------> 67876
2,3,ujdj5&34 -------> 23534
909k86m34 --------> 9098634

## Extracting Numbers From Alphanumeric Strings (strip Numbers?)

Aug 15, 2008

I import data from another program in order to evaluate it. Unfortunately, one of the fields I need contains copyright data, however, it has been very inconsistently entered into the database. For example, sometimes the data appears "c1999." or "-1999" or "" or "[1999]" or even "19?" and also sometimes "1999, 1990" and many other variations on that. I discovered the link in the excel help file about extracting numbers from alphanumeric strings, but my situation is still too variable for it to apply; that file didn't take into account that alphanumeric strings don't always lump numbers and letters together. I was able to correct a few things, but my command of excel isn't knowledgeable enough to really come up with something effective.

Some ideas I had that I don't know how to implement: is there a way to strip non-numerical characters from an alphanumeric string? (I've been doing some find/replaces to get rid of some of it, but that is obviously not very efficient when I have to repeat this process daily.) Perhaps then I could just detect the first 4 numbers of the string somehow. However, that doesn't solve the problem of when a wild card is used as in "199?" or "20?" etc.

Bottom line, I just need to grab the first four numbers that appear in the string (but NOT additional numbers that occur after a wild card or a space if the year was not completed in 4 numbers; in that case I'd just be happy with a null value).

I've been doing this with a formula so far. My only experience with macros has been in simply recording them, not actually writing them, but I'll give anything a try.

## Extracting Strings From A Column Of Data That Match A Predefined List

Jun 15, 2009

I sent this before but the formula I was given wasn't correct (as you will see from the file). In Column B of the second sheet (Data) of the attached file, I want to bring back the relevant name form the first sheet (List), which involves searching through the long descriptions from column A on the Data sheet for the name on the List sheet.

## Extracting Data From File In Directory And Extracting Filename

Mar 20, 2014

I have a directory folder with an active workbook and another workbook id like to copy data from. The Following macro opens up a file in the same directory, copies some data and pastes it in the active workbook. However with this code I have to specify the filename, 'Data.xlsm' in the example code. I would like it to copy data from the only other workbook in the current directory WITHOUT having to specify the name in the code, so just opening it up no matter what filename it has.

In addition I would like to extract the filename from the workbook im copying data from and paste it into the activewoorkbook in sheet 1 Cell A1. I had a look at getopenfilename function but cant seem to make it work for my purpose.
