So I'm just a lowly intern who has been given the task of changing date formats in a bunch of spreadsheets. The string is as follows:

Finding Text String & Format

Apr 10, 2008

I have a mass of text in a cell. I would ideally like to search the text to format in a different font colour so it can be easily seen where the specific text is.

My current way is to use SEARCH in conditional formatting but this changes the whole cell not the specific text I am interested in.

EG. - I interested in the text PETER in my cell so would like PETER to be in red font.

A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked; If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

Finding Text That Matches Format Criteria In String?

Oct 3, 2011

I'm trying to restructure a list of files at work into a format that makes some sort of sense and can be filtered into useful information.

Part of what I need to do, is match up all the drawing numbers that a certain project references. The numbers are formatted like "####A##" ex. 1234A01,1234A02,5678A01, etc. The cells that I need to extract drawing numbers from contain some description or other text (not just the drawing number) so I need to extract the drawing number from that cells value. (Ex. I need to get the drawing number 1234A01 from a cell whose value is "blah blah 1234A01 blah blah blah")

I was thinking I could just search the string for "####A##" but I'm not really sure how....I tried instr, but I think its searching for the literal value of "####A##" rather than treating the # characters as wildcards...

I tried:

Code:
if rngNames.Cells(intx, 2).Value Like ("*####A##*") then
set intStart = instr(1,rngnames.Cells(intx,2).value,"####A##")
'....
end if
but intStart remains 0, so this method is not working...

Convert A Date Format To A Text Format

Oct 6, 2008

Example......

In D2 I have: =B2
In D3 I have manually input: (space)3-08

As you can see the CONCATENATE puts the "39569" date in A2 But the second line puts the text date as I prefer. What I would like to do is put in a formula or macro in D2 and down that will change the "Mar-08" to "3-08" so it CONCATENATEs correctly to column A. Simply: I'm trying to avoid manually inputing the text version "3-08" (or whatever M-Y) into D2 down a hundred or so rows!

Custom Cell Format - Number Ending With Text String

Jun 13, 2013

How to modify a custom cell format to make data entry easier.

My goal is to have the output look like this: 'A12B-C20D: SET 10: Text string here'

Inputs needed are:

1-3 digit number between A & B
1-3 digit number between C & D
1-2 digit number after SET
Text string of variable length

Where I am stuck. So far I can get "A12B-C20D: SET 10:" to show up properly when 122010 is input. The custom format I am using looks like this: "A"##"B-C"##"D: SET "##": "

When I try to incorporate the "@" symbol the first part of the formatting goes away and the output shows up as "122010 Text string here".

I have tried:
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##":";;-;_@
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##": ";;@
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##":";_@
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##": ";;;@

Extracting Specific Information From Text String To Conform To Format To Upload Into QB

Mar 21, 2014

I have a string of information in an Excel download from PayPal that I need to upload into QB; but, the information needs to be in a different format. The string from the download is:

Property Address - 1116 South PaxonBorrower " Testa and Son Contractors,LLCLoan # - 1402088Acct Executive " Brandon Tully

But, I need it to be:

1402040;TPAPR;141 North Clinton Street, East Orange, NJ 07017;Leslie P Carter

Is there a formula that I can use to extract specific information from the original string into columns so I can then concatenate the columns into the information I need to upload? Or is there a better way to do this? The Property Address and Borrower Name are not static sizes so I can't use a formula that counts spaces.

Copy Date Into Text Box Retaining Date Format

Dec 12, 2007

I've created a group of user forms used for recording jobs and displaying details of jobs and have come up against a problem I think you may be able to help me with.

When the user creates a new record, I've written some code to stamp txtdate text box with the current system date and this information is then copied onto a sheet called Data into a specific column.

This part works fine and as the column is formatted to handle dates it displays fine.

However, when I pull the data back in, it displays the date as the serial number date, not formatted as dd/mm/yy. I've tried every fix I can find to sort this but none of them seem to work.

The code I use to pull the data in is as follows:

ComboBox1.BoundColumn = 11
txtdate.Value = ComboBox1.Value

The idea is that the user selects a job number from combobox1 and then the appropriate column is pulled into each txt box on the form.

At the same time, I'm trying to do the same for the system time as well. Unsurprisingly I have a very similar problem here and use the same code as above. I've tried formatting both date and time txt boxes in the userform, the data transfer code etc etc with no success.

Extracting A Date From A Text String

Sep 22, 2009

I have a column of data in the following format:

261D 31/12/2008

There is also a single space after the end of the date.

Can someone please show me a formula to extract the date from each cell in the column? This is slightly complicated by the fact that the number of days (D) could consist of 1, 2, 3 or 4 characters, and the date could also be of variable length (e.g. 1/1/2008 vs 31/05/2008)

String If Text Insert Date

Feb 11, 2010

I am trying to setup a variable from a dropdown selection box. Basically, If "Completed" is selected in the box, current date is set in the corresponding field.

The formula I have tried is:
=IF(F5="Completed",G5="",G5=NOW())

I have a variable string setup opposite of what I am going for that works:
=IF(AND(D5<>"Assigned",D5<>""),IF(E5="",NOW(),E5),"")

So if anything is showing other than assigned the date is input. But have not been able to reverse this for the desired output.

My database has 6 fields names and I have created the following code to capture and post data to the database form a userform. It works but I am sure there is a more efficient and elegant way to do this. The two areas I would like advice are:
1. converting the date string to a date.
2. the line of code where I subtract line6 from line4.

Convert Text String Into Excel Date With VBA

Aug 13, 2013

I have a date range that looks like this (British date style, not US):

edit: I posted an image but it can't be seen for some reason:

Date Range
2010 11/10 17/10
2010 11/10 17/10
2010 11/10 17/10
2010 11/10 17/10

Thus the first cell show 11 October 2010 to 17 October 2010 I want to return just the first day (the week commencing date):

edit: I posted an image but it can't be seen for some reason:

Week Commencing
11/10/2010
11/10/2010
11/10/2010
11/10/2010

I have written some VBA to the best of my ability but it seems clumsy using the FORMAT function. Is there a better of doing this with VBA. I can't seem to find a function in VBA which is the equivalent of the formula function DATE.

Code:
Sub ConvertTextToBritStyleDate()
' dd/mm/yyyy (not mm/dd/yyyy)
' Select the cells containing the dates (not the header)

I have dates formatted as dd/mm/yyyy and I need just the year, but with either text or standard format. (so no easy yyyy solution which would work)

I just seem to be too stupid, can't copy and paste as value, as that doesn't change a bit. If I format it as text it turns up sth like 34875 ofc.

Format Date With Other Text In Same Forumula

Feb 12, 2010

I am trying to display both text and a date in the same line. Currently I have something like ="The Date Is " & A1. where A1 is a cell with a date formatted in a preferred format. However, once I call reference to the cell, excel re-formats it into the serial date, so it displays something like. The Date Is 40220

instead of something like: The Date is 2/11/2010. Does anyone know how to format the number back into a date form? Just going through the format menus and setting it to date does not change it.

Convert Date Format To Text

Nov 13, 2006

I am trying to make a very simple macro but get stuck in de Excel date format. When using the date "=TODAY()" in one cel it is no problem but I want to integrate it in the CONCATENATE function.

I want to create this text "(WG 01-01-2006)" but then with the actual date of that day of course, which can be inserted in de active cell.

Whatever I do, copy, pastespecial, reed text with RIGHT, change format on an temporary cell etc. Excel keeps returning the number in Excel date format counting from 01-01-1900. Nice for calculating but I want the date text!
