# Display TRUE If One Of 4 Values Appears In A Text String

Sep 19, 2012

I have values in A1 through A4.

I have a string of text in cell B1.

In C1, I need a formula that displays TRUE if any of the 4 numbers from A1 through A4 are contained within the text in B1. If not, FALSE will be displayed.

Been messing with SEARCH and FIND, but not getting it to work.... not sure if those are the functions I need.

## Display A String Of Text With Multiple Cell Values

Jul 30, 2009

I am trying to create a formula to display a string of text that refers to multiple cells. for example, =If(A1=0,"insert text here" &B1 "insert more text here" &B2 "insert even more text here" &B3, "insert text here" &C1 "Insert text here").
It works fine for one cell value, like ="Total: " &A1

## Display Maximum Times Text Appears In Particular Columns

Dec 19, 2012

I have number of items and many items appear more than once. I need a formula so that counts the number of item appearing maximum number of times and it displays the name of the text written NOT the number of times it is written. It should also calculate number of times it appears in a particular month.

For E.g.

Table 1-5-2012
Chair 1-5-2012
Fan 3-5-2012
Table 10-5-2012
Fan 1-6-2012
Window 1-6-2012
Glass 1-7-2012
Glass 9-7-2012

The formula should work as follows

Table 2 May-12
Glass 2 July-12

## Formula To Indicate When Text String Appears In Array

Jun 30, 2014

I have a long list of terms, and I need to identify which of these terms appear in another body of text strings. Rather than searching for each individual term, is there a formula that check the terms for me automatically.

The terms will appear in the larger body of text, but they won't appear on their own, so they won't be perfect matches.

I've attached a sheet to try to illustrate the problem.

## Count Number Of Time A Text String Appears

May 25, 2007

I have a very large spreadsheet and want to count the number of times a particular text string shows up in a column. I can't use autofilter due to the 1000 limit.

Here's an example, Column C contains:
Dan Parker
John Doe
Dan Smith
Jill Smith

So if I search on *Dan*, the function should return a count of 2.

I've used COUNTIF before to return values when the whole cell = a certain value but in my case the cell may have 200 characters and I want to count based on a fuzzy search. I would like to do this in a function and not a macro.

## Determine Whether A Substring Appears In A Text String (2007)

Jan 16, 2010

I'm looking for a formula that can determine whether a given sub-string appears in a string. For example if cell A1 contains the string "bathing", and cell A2 contains the sub-string "bat", the formula in A3 would return "TRUE".

However, if the sub-string in A2 is changed to "cat", the result in A3 would be "FALSE". The formula would need to work with strings of different and unpredictable lengths.

## Count Up How Many Times A Particular Phrase Within A Text String Appears

Feb 7, 2007

i have a spreadsheet where I need to count up how many times a particular phrase within a text string appears. The text string will be duplicated many times throughout the spreadsheet.

For example :

Miss X was at work on Saturday
Mr XX was at work on Saturday but not Tuesday
Miss Y was at work on Tuesday

So I would like to count up how many times "work on Saturday" appears in my spreadsheet, and then as a seperate query, how many times "work on Tuesday" appears.

## Count Number Of Times Text String Appears In A Range

Feb 6, 2012

I want to count the number of times a word appears in a range (like M9:S663), but sorting it by the month it appears (eg: january = 2, february = 56, march = 2000, etc.)

I managed to do this but there has to be a better way

=COUNTIFS(RNM.1;"PRUM Transcripcion";FechaComite;">=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";
FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";
FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"=01/01/2012";FechaComite;"

## Convert Imported Values, Being Seen As Text, To True Numbers

Jan 28, 2010

I have a document passed to me that includes information pulled from an internal system.

I want to use some basic formulas to show Totals, averages etc.

However, the SUM function does not work on the data provided unless I select the cell (As if to edit the text) and the press enter.

Is there a quicker way of selecting all of the cells in Column A for example and performing this function on mass, rather than selecting each cell individually.

I have attahced a similar sample copy - My SUM formula is show in cell B15.

## Hide Checkbox TRUE/FALSE & Sum Values Adjacent To TRUE

Aug 2, 2009

I have a worksheet where I have around 300 rows, each with 7 columns. What I want to do is add a checkbox to each column. I plan on setting non-applicable checkboxes to mixed status and locking the worksheet. I will unlock applicable checkboxes and sumif or countif their value according to row-based scoring, for example, each checked checkbox represents a value of 3. I do not know VBA and have chose to use the form control checkboxes rather than ActiveX.

I believe that a formula for this would be something like: =SUMIF(B1:B3,True,"3") or =COUNTIF(\$B\$1:\$B\$3,True)*3

I am wondering firstly if I have that right and secondly if there is a way to stop my checkboxes from displaying labels. Currently, if I click on one it displays True behind the active checkbox. If I uncheck it, it displays False.

## Match Row That Contains Text Text String; List Associated Values From Pivot Table

Mar 28, 2009

refer to the attached workbook for reference. I am looking for a function in Sheet1, Column E that will search for the value of Sheet1, Column A within Sheet2, Column A. When a match is found, the function should look across Sheet2, Columns B - V for values of 1. When such values are found, the function should return the associated value from Sheet2, Row 2. There may be multiple values of 1, and as such, the function should separate values with a comma.

## Averaging Values In A Text String

Nov 13, 2007

Without using VB is there a single cell solution to this?

Column of cells contain values in this format;

100, 100, 95, 96

as text.

There can be any number of commas and values. Is there a way to find the average of the numbers in each cell? (Above example would return 97.75.)

## Extracting Values From An Text String (URL)

Oct 14, 2008

I was given a worksheet that contains a column (A) containing about 5,000 URLs (A1 to ~A5000). Each URL string includes three parameters that I want to capture the values.

For example =

[url]

The prameters are known but the values are random up to 256 characters.

I am trying to pull each of the values into a column for sortability and have been mildly successful using MID and FIND but no joy.

## Look For Two Values And Return A Text String

Jul 13, 2009

Say I have a table like this:

Value 1---Value 2---Name

Now I have two separate columns with values for "Value 1" and Value 2". How can I tell Excel to look in the table above and return the name?

## VLOOKUP To Find Values In Text String?

Feb 17, 2010

I need to to highlight keywords within a block of text (string). I don't need to necessarily return a value with the VLOOKUP. I just need to compare keyword list in Column B to the Text in Cell A1. If the word from the list appears in the text, I need it to be highlighted for every instance.

EXAMPLE
Text String (A1)

Welcome to Jake's Car Accessories website. We have all of your car accessory needs including car covers, truck covers, custom car grills and other car accessories.

Keyword List (Column B)
car accessory
car covers
truck covers
car accessories

I think VLOOKUP only works on lists.

## Search Multiple Worksheets For Text String Then Sum Corresponding Values?

Sep 24, 2010

I have a workbook that contains 18 sheets of data. These worksheets are named according to their respective client names (AAA Shine, Fern Barn, Oracle, etc. for example). On each of these sheets, is a column (Column B), that has a salesperson's name in it (Fred, Joe, Ted, Anne... there are about 10 names total). On each sheet, there are corresponding values for the revenue from that account for each month of the year. Those values appear in Column L (Jan), M(Feb), N(Mar),... W(Dec).

What I would like to have is formula that will look at each sheet, find all the instances of Fred for January, sum them, and report them in a single cell on a different sheet I have called "Summary". The end result will be a total revenue from all customers, for each sales person, by month, in one summary sheet.

## Return A True/false Based On A Cell Containing A String Vs A Value

Jul 20, 2006

how return a true/false based on a cell containing a string (text) vs a value?

I have a column where most cells are blank, some contain text, and others contain dates. I would like to select and manipulate only the ones that contain dates (or values).

## Macro To Paste Values If Cell Value If Match Text String?

Jan 6, 2014

In Sheet1, column Y looks into Sheet2 and returns the status of that specific order - the result displayed in column Y will be either blank or a variety of text strings (eg. received, pending etc).

I need to make a macro that looks into all the cells of column Y in Sheet 1 and copy/pastes as value into that same cell only if the formula in that cell returns text string "Received". It should not affect the other cells where the formula is returning either blank or a different text string.

## Return True / False If String Of Words Is Present In Another List?

Dec 5, 2013

I have two lists, one that is 99,000 lines and the other is 150. I am trying to find out where the word(s) in the list of 150 is present in the list 99,000.

1st list of 99,000 is in Sheet1 A1-A99000 and the second list is in Sheet2 B1-B150.

The caveat is that in column A there is additional words in that cell so you can not do a simple vlookup, because there may or may not be an exact match.

I have been stuck for hours and the best i can get is to use the match function but it is not working because it is not exact. Last thing i want to do is use the CTRL F key to lookup all the words.

## Highlight When Certain Text Appears

I tried using Conditional Formatting, but for some reason it didn't work. I want a cell to be highlighted and/or bolded when particular text is written. It can be in any cell. This can also include blank cells (if possible within a given area such as 20 cells by 20 cells)

## Date Appears As Number When Add Text To The End?

Jun 9, 2014

I am trying to have my cell show a range of dates, like:

5/25/14 - 5-27/14

I'm trying to use a formula like:

=DATE(2012,5,9) & " - " & DATE(2012,5,9)+2

But when I do this it just appears as:
41038 - 41040

Is there any way to tell excel to format these as dates?

## SUMIF When Text Appears Anywhere In The Cell?

Feb 5, 2014

I would like to use a formula that will pull values into a sum where the values are in a column and the category is in another column. The criteria in the text cells could be located anywhere in the cell.

wrxyz4sdtr (Strategic) 1234567
zecgjioae (Baseline) Infrastructure 71235
qpielcmjj ae (Strategic) New Capability 278332

## Text Appears When Hiding Column

Jan 30, 2008

When I hide a column in this spreadsheet, text appears in some of the cells that shouldn't be there. When I highlight and try to delete, it won't delete and it doesn't even show up in the function bar. I was able to get it to delete when I do clear, all from the edit menu but as soon as I try formating the cell, it puts it right back. Same text, same formatting. I can't get rid of it.
