Deleting Parts Of Text In Cells

Dec 8, 2011

I'm developing a fixture list (involving 26,000 individual fixtures) I'm trying to come up with a Macro which will enable me to delete part of each cell containing the two team reference numbers and the match number, and paste it in another column. I'd like to do this for all 26,000 fixtures.

In case you didn't understand that too well. For example, with the cell value of '1v2-54', I'd like to get rid of the '-54' and put it in another cell.

But the key thing is, using this principle, I'd like all 26,000 fixtures to be done this way. Obviously I'm not going to do it by hand.

As you can see from the screenshot, the pattern of how the column goes:

Find Text In Workbook And Then Deleting Range Of Cells Above It

Jan 29, 2014

I want to create a macro that will find a text string called "Season Average" in the entire workbook and delete a range of cells above it 4 cells longs starting right above the text and then going left.

Example is if "Season Average" is in cell D11, than I want the cells D10, C10, B10 & A10 Deleted and the cells to shift up

This happens throughout the entire workbook and multiple times on each work sheet in different spots not consistently same cells.

Print Parts In Portrait Parts In Landscape

Dec 21, 2006

I have a document needed to be printed with some pages in the middle in landscape page type, the rest in portrait. If using Word it would be easier, but in Excel I cant find the section break to chage page setup separately. Is there anyway to do it. Currently I'm printing the document separately in portrait and then landscape with some page break added and page number modified. However it's quite troublesome and easy to make mistake.

How To Select Parts Of Text

Mar 1, 2010

Does anyone know of a way to select fragments of the following text?

The string is "toby.cameron1".

I need to be able to select just the "toby" and "cameron" parts.
Also this string is variable in that it might be "james.brown" or similar without the number at the end.

I can't use a Left or Right statement because of the varying length of names and the uncertainty of having a number at the end.

Is there a way I can copy the start of the string until the period. And do the same from the end but ignore the number whether it's present or not.

From that, is there anyway to copy the numbers off the end of a string?

i.e. my string is ASY-623 or DRGN-12 or WDSR-7

The string will always be letters a dash and then numbers.

How do I copy only the numbers?

Selecting Only Parts Of A String Of Text

Nov 18, 2013

I need separating parts of a string of text to go into separate columns.

Fortunately the spreadsheet is in the same format in relation to spaces and numbers of characters with the exception of the red text which can be any where between 2 and 50 characters.

I actually need AL46 to go to Col B, 001488616 into Col C, Valve, Pressure Equalizing, Gaseous into Col D and D03079/0002 into Col E.

(65) AL46 ALSPO 0299999999 A20LS DISPOSALS.(001488616) Valve, Pressure Equalizing, Gaseous.D03079/0002

Lookup Function: Compare Every Part In The All Parts Worksheet To See If The Part Number Exists On The Active Parts Sheet

Dec 10, 2008

I have a spreadsheet with 2 worksheets. On the first "active parts" I have a list of active part numbers and on the second "All Parts" I have all of the parts available.

I want to compare every part in the All Parts worksheet to see if the part number exists on the Active Parts sheet - if it's there, I would like it to return the value "Active" in column B in All Parts. I have a formula in column B in All Parts that seems to work for the first few, but as soon as it finds one that is active, the rest of the cells below all return "Active".

Summing Variable Number Of Cells And Parts Of Cells

Mar 18, 2014

In my financial modelling I often have a calculated number of months of inventory. This number varies. I need to use this number to calculate the actual inventory value. For eg. it may be 3.2 months of inventory; in this case I need to sum 3 cells (current month, current month -1, current month -2) plus 0.2 of the fourth cell (current month -3)

But I may need to change the number of months of inventory to, for example, 4.2. In this case I would need the sum of four cells plus 0.2 of the fifth cell etc etc.

Combining Parts Of Two Cells

Jul 27, 2009

I have a list of dates in column A as follows:


In column B I have set of data as follows:
C 2010@101.0
C 2011
C 2011@101.0
C 2012@101.0
C 2013
C 2013
C 2014@101.0

I need to combine the day and month only in column A with the year (in positions 3-6) in column B

As an example I have "11/1/2015" in column A and "C 2010@101.0" in column B. The desired result in column C is "11/1/2010".

I have tried using the left function in column A with the mid function in column B but haven't had any luck so far.

Search Parts Of Columns Looking For Matches In Parts Of Other Columns In A Row

Mar 1, 2014

I have sheets with names of people in columns....some married...some not. When they are married, here's a sample format...

Jones, Donald T | Baker, Sarah Jane | Jones, Sarah Jane | Smith, Sarah J | Jones, Sarah Jane Smith

In this example, I would like to be able to determine which of the Sarah's belongs to Donald w/o having to visually look at each record ( 100,000's of records). (FYI: the names for Sarah would/could be her Maiden Name and possibly a name or two from a former marriage). What I need to be able to do is match and extract the names of Jones, Donald T and Jones, Sarah Jane and Jones, Sarah Jane Smith and eliminate Smith, Sarah J and Baker, Sarah Jane.

In my example, Donald is in the first column, but can be in any column on a row so the name positions are random across the columns. However, the format for each column is then same...Last Name, First Name Middle Name(or Initial) with a comma always after the last name in each column. The length of the last name also varies.

VBA or Formula that will search the cells in the columns of each row and return the names (complete contents of the cells with matching last names) that have a matching last name for that row.

Deleting Rows That Contain Certain Text

Aug 23, 2007

I have a spreadsheet nearing 10000 various products with columns A-M.
I need to do the following:

Delete the entire row and shift up
If column H contains "this text" or "File Server Manager" or "ABT". Column H being the product description.

Basically, I have customers that are authorized only to sell certain products. So instead of filtering threw and saying, ok he cant sell "File Server Manager" delete that entire row. OR he cant sell these 10 products cause it says oracle in the product description then delete that row.

I was researching the fourms and saw something on AutoFilter. Will that work?

It was something along the lines of:

.AutoFilter field:=1, Criteria1:="ENTER TEXT HERE"

I appreciate all your help!

Deleting Text With Conditional Formatting?

Deleting Rows With Text Or Blanks

Sep 19, 2006

Id like to thank ByTheCringe2 for getting me to this point. Now I need just a little bit more help before I can take over and work on it on my own. I have attached a sample sheet of the current problem im having. I messed up in the previous post by not giving an example of text underneath invoice.

This is what I need.

1) I looked in to this and I think the best way to go about this would be to say that if a cell in Column H does not have a numeric value, then to erase the entire row. The reason for this is that Column H is the only column that remains constant in that it is the total balance of the invoice therefore if it doesn't have a balance or there are letters in the cell, it is not a valid cell and not a valid row. I highlighted the example of my problem. This is the formula im using...

=IF(ISERROR(MATCH($E20,'Imported Data'!$E$6:$E$30,0)),"",IF(INDEX('Imported Data'!K$6:K$30,MATCH($E20,'Imported Data'!$E$6:$E$30,0))=0,"",INDEX('Imported Data'!K$6:K$30,MATCH($E20,'Imported Data'!$E$6:$E$30,0))))

Deleting Page Breaks From Text File Formatted

May 30, 2006

I am trying to figure out how to create a Macro code in Excel that will delete text file page breaks. Each page break starts with a square in column A and ends with the word continued in column D. I've tried several times, but when I test the code and I highlight the section to delete, it only deletes those specific rows next time. How can I get it to delete the rows from the square to "Continued" throughout the document without making reference to specific cell numbers?

Deleting Groups Of Rows When Specific Text Data Is Populating Row?

Feb 14, 2013

I have a complex report with thousands of lines I am trying to clean up. In order to do this, I need VBA that recognizes specific text data starting after row 9. When it sees this, it will need to select and delete the 2 rows above it, the row it is in, and the 6 rows below it. 9 rows in total, some of which are blank. The text will repeat every 47-50 rows, but I cannot say exactly when it will repeat again. When it is repeated, I need the 9 rows deleted. At this time, there is only 1 column in the report because I need to split out the data in the cell into adjoining cells. Since I have not solved that yet, I need to just delete the entire row.

The text is written with spaces between each letter and a double space between words. It reads, "B I L L I N G M A S T E R I N V O I C E S E T U P L I S T I N G"

Deleting Visible Cells?

Apr 30, 2014

I have a data in which I have inserted a table with headers.

I then filter the type of data I want removed from the table using the drop down

Then goto special, visible cells only, press delete.

Now, the data is gone, but when I select all again to pull up the entire table, the data is gone, but rows are still there. So now I have tons of empty rows in between the rows of needed data. Any way of removing the rows in between as well as the data?

Number Cells Deleting 0s

Jul 7, 2014

I need to store some numbers, all of which are prefixed by four or five zeros. When I format the cells as number, the zeros are erased. So, 0000012345 becomes 12345. The zeros are preserved when I store them as text, but I cannot do the functions that I need to do with the cells formatted as text.

How I can preserve the zeros in number format?

Instead of deleting, the values can also be replaced with anything e.g., zero or n/a etc.
