EXTRACTING The First Four Consecutive Numbers And Placing Them In Another Cell

Aug 18, 2009

Column C is the tricky one. It comes from the bank and somewhere in there is a 4-digit tenant reference. I did a formula to try and isloate it and it worked on most but if you look at the very first row, there is a spurious 99 in there, so it didn't work. Is there a way of EXTRACTING the first four consecutive numbers and placing them in another cell?

I have set up a spreadsheet template that automatically populates specific values through the spreadsheet based on what the value of cell "A1" is. I want to run through 224 potential values in cell A1 and print out the worksheet after each potential value.

My thought on how to approach it is to write a macro that: 1. Selects the next item from the drop down box in cell A1 2. Prints the page (using default print settings) 3. Loops

But I don't know what the code would be. Cell A1 also does not need to be a drop down box, as long as it incrementally runs through all 224 listed values and prints after each one.

I need find consecutive Numbers in a singles Cell but each numbers have a leading zero and "-" (Dash)

My problem is that the UDF that i found on this forum, is for numbers with out leading zero with comma ",",

So even if change the "," by "-", still getting a error Because the Code is designed to Read numbers Formats different than mine..

My Numbers are located in Cell G12 (down), and the message that i need to show in the cell result is :

If Found : 0 Consecutives --> 0 2 Consecutives --> 2 3 consecutives --> 3 4 consecutives --> 4 5 consecutives --> 5 2 Set of consecutives --> 2S

Example of 0 consecutives --> 01-04-07-12-25-30 Example of 2 consecutives --> 01-02-07-12-25-30 Example of 3 consecutives --> 01-02-03-12-25-30 Example of 4 consecutives --> 01-02-03-04-25-30 Example of 5 consecutives --> 01-02-03-04-05-30 Example of 2 sets of consecutive s --> 01-02-07-12-25-26

BTW my numbers start on Cell G12 down.. ______G12_______ 01-02-03-20-21-25

I have 2 different forms that I need info from one, added to the other.

The reason for this is to update pricing from a new file, into an older file with the same product code for each product.

on form 1(the one I want to keep), column x is price(that I want to update from form 2 column L), and column B is the product code(sku)

Now on form 2 Column L is the The customer price(this is the data I need moved over to column X on form 1. and column I is the UPC 10(sku) that needs to match the same sku(product code) on form 1.

Gee this sounds confusing aFTER i TYPED IT.. i HOPE THIS MAKES SENSE. i WILL ALSO ADD THE 2 FILES, SO YOU CAN SEE WEHAT I am talking about.

Please help as I have about 30,000 items total, and would take way too long to update prices manually every 2 - 3 months.

We are changing management systems here and in order to do so we need to provide the names and addresses of over 400 different people. Our current management system stores people's addresses as a whole for example; 32, Example Street, Town, County, Postcode.

I cant extract just the numbers because I only need the house number and not the postcode.

After searching several forums I thought I had solved it with this.

Cell A1 is the extracted address from current management system reading 32, Example Street, Town, County, IU13 8TY

Cell B1 is =LEFT(A1, SEARCH(" ",O15,1))

Cell C1 is =SUM(MID(0&B1,LARGE(ISNUMBER(--MID(B1,ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(B1))),1))*ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(B1))),ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(B1))))+1,1)*10^ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(B1)))/10)

That only gives me the number "3" though and I need 32.

Basically A1:A400 will be addresses as above and in cell B1:B400 I need just there house number at the start.

I need to extract the number (regardless of the amount of characters) signified by the "." Another words, I need a formula that will give the the answers of the following in column "B"

1540.12 37.95 86.37

These are the amounts spent. It would be easier if there was a "$" but theres not... so I need to find the "." and give me the numbers associated with it.

I would like to extract multiple numbers from a single cell. The cells contain -, /, and blank spaces are delimiters. An example is 4 - 3 1/4 and because of the way they use that number, it really means 4 inches and 3.25 fifths of an inch (3.25/5 inches) which is weird. I want to go through each cell and store the 4, 3, and 1/4 as variables so I can then manipulate to convert them to the proper inch value (I can perform the conversion code, I just need to know how to set those variables in the cell). And I would like it to automatically do it when a cell has been changed. formatting to maintain overall table width dimensions so if you know anything about that,

both cells are blank

4 - 3 1/4

cell value is enter in on the left

4 - 3 1/4 4.65 converted cell value appears on the left

I need to extract numbers from excel cells. For eg-

BAR TBG 04.00X02.25X26.50 1340 HRN SMLS SPEC. ES4.38694

^^^ This is one of the cells. I need to pull out 04.00, 2.25, 26.50, 1340 into different cells from one given cell.

I have tried using =MID() function, but I need to make changes into that formula everytime the position of first numeric letter changes while I go along a column. And I need to make changes into it as I go along the row.

It is taking me a lot of time in extracting numbers from one cell into different cells and I am afraid that I will spend the rest of my life getting this stuff done.

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

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.

I have 3 columns, in column 1 and 2 there will be numbers and I want automatically to get in column 3 the range of numbers between Column 1 and Column 2 Column 1 - 100 Column 2 - 500 Column 3 - 100, 101, 102, ..., 500

I have a daily column of numbers of approx 600 rows and the number is either a 0 or 1 and the 0 or 1 are in a random order in each row like:

1 1 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 1

I would like to find the min number of rows with 1, the max number of rows with 1, the totals of consecutive rows with 1 ie 3 consecutive rows of 1 appear 4 times, 4 consecutive rows appear 6 times etc and the average of the consecutive rows with 1.

with this Excel problem? I have a set of data of 300 some odd rows of numbers. I need to find 24 CONSECUTIVE values that add up to the HIGHEST sum? For instance,

I am preparing a attendance sheet. I am using 1 & 0 for present(=1) & absent(=0). I want to find out if a student has been absent for three consecutive days and if there is three consecutive 0 then the formula should return the value 0 ( the student gets 0 if he is absent for 3 consecutive days ) otherwise it should add all the 1s in the row. i.e

I have the attached table of numbers and I need a formula at the end of each column to identify whether any cells in that column consecutively have numbers in them greater than zero. Ideally by a count of how many cells in the column have consecutive numbers greater than zero (so if there are three 1's in a row and then a zero and then another 2 1's I want it to count 5).Excel Help.xlsx

I have a spreadsheet that has a column of numbers some of which are consecutive, some of which are not. I would like to have a way to lump all of these chunks of consecutive blocks into ranges. For example:

I have got the following issue. I have got a large list of values in a column. I need to detect the the ones which are in non-consecutive order and display the difference in single numbers. For example:

1 fine 2 fine 3 fine 7 - 4,5,6 10 - 8,9

In other words I need to find the missing values and get them displayed.

I have an interval, for example [1431, 1589] an I need to automatically generate consecutive numbers in this interval - for example 1431.1 , 1431.2 ..... 1588.8, 1588.9, 1589. How can I do that? I know I can do this manually by writing some values and drag down but I need this done automatically.

to create with the default excel functions the following calculator. I need to calculate the maximum number of positive numbers which happen in a row and the maximum number of consecutive negative numbers. For example in the following list of numbers there are a maximum of 7 consecutive positive and a maximum of 6 consecutive negative numbers:
