View Hidden Characters Inside Excel Cell

Dec 14, 2012

How can I view hidden characters inside an excel cell. I have an excel file that I receive from our vendors. After verifying the data, I save the file as a tab delimited .txt format. When I open the .txt file I see some data with " " at both ends. i.e. "800 North Ave. Suite A". The thing is I don't see the " " in excel. This tells me that these are non-printing characters.

Excel 2010 :: Save CSV File With Non-English Characters?

Dec 5, 2012

I run excel 2010... I have xls file (see file attached) with both English and Non English characters.

When I save this file as xls or xlsx - everything is good, but when I save the file as CSV and try to open it later - I see that the English characters stays the same but the non English characters become gibberish.

How can I save a file (that include some non English characters) as CSV without loosing the non English characters? Is there a way to do that from within the excel 2010 menus? Or maybe there is an external tool?

Excel 2010 :: Set Row Height Based On First 14 Characters In String?

Feb 23, 2012

Excel 2010; I am setting row heights on the basis of some parameters. I have the following statement;

If targetCell.Value = "Photo Comment: " Then
targetCell.RowHeight = 185

But what I really want is to recognize only the phrase;

"Photo Comment:" in a text string that might be much longer e.g,

"Photo Comment: The photo above depicts yata, yata.........."

So, I want to recognize the first 14 character as "Photo Comment:" and then have the row height adjust to 185. So it involves "Left" and "Len" (I'm thinkin') but the syntax is beyond me.

Clear Contents If 2 Characters Or Less

Feb 10, 2010

I am looking for a way to remove text from a cell if it is 2 characters or less but do nothing if the text is longer than that. Is there a way to do this with either a function or an advanced find?

For more detail, I have a list of middle initials and last names. The cells are either a middle initial by itself like "D." or they are a last name like Jones. I want to go through and delete the cells that have the middle initial and leave the ones with the last name. So if there is a function that will evaluate the cell, and if it is 2 characters or less, then delete the contents. If greater than 3, leave it alone.

Take X Characters From One Cell And Y Characters From The Next?

Aug 1, 2014

So we have people's names in a table. First name in one column and last name in another column. We have a 3rd column where we can use 8 characters to do a combination of First 5 of Last Name + first 3 of first name. However, if someone's last name is only 3 or 4 characters, we'd then want to take more from the first name to fill out the 8 characters.

So:
Charles Johnson -> Johnscha
John Smith -> Smithjoh
Willian Wu -> Wuwillia

What's the best way to do that without creating some crazy formula with tons of if/thens?

Excel 2010 :: Selection Change Event On Text Inside Textbox?

Jun 10, 2014

As part of a program I'm writing in VBA (for Excel 2010), I have a textbox in a user form used as an interface to write a formula in cells in Excel.The resulting value of a formula from a cell is loaded up into the textbox. It would be shown in the textbox like "See 1.2 and 1.3" where the formula in the cell is

[Code].....

This is just used as an example but the principle is there. It is worth noting that I’m writing this for very inexperienced Excel users but I need them to be able to edit the string part of the formula without breaking the formula.

However where I’m struggling is to pick up a selection change event inside a text box already selected. I need to be able to check if the textbox.SelStart is within an address value or within the string in the textbox.

The event Enter won’t work if the user is already editing the textbox (i.e. typing stuff) and then clicking or using the keyboard arrow to move the cursor somewhere else inside the textbox. I don’t think the event Change is the solution either as it would mean that the user would have already typed something and as a result the formula may already be broken.

I have had a good look around and I didn’t find an event for a selection change inside a textbox. Does it exists and/or is there a way that would have the same result?

URL Longer Than 256 Characters - Importing From Web Excel Sheet

Jun 20, 2014

When trying to import an excel file (.xlsx) from the web to a local excel file on my computer, I have tried to set up a macro to automate this process. I recorded a macro using the "record macro" function, but when trying to import the .xlsx file, the URL was too long and Excel does not allow for such long URLs.

The URL in question is:

[URL]

One solution which I thought of was to shorten the URL with tinyurl.com, which converted the URL to: [URL] . I then used this in the macro recording and it indeed worked. I then tried to substitute all instances of the tinyurl in the VBA code with the long URL, but the

Code:
.SourceDataFile = "http://www.transelectrica.ro/widget/...let_excel=true"
was regarded as an invalid cell/argument.

Is there any way in which I can make this work? I need to have the whole URL, as in the end I plan to have an automated process with the URL changing every 10 seconds with the system clock (and thus refreshing the imported table every 10 seconds), so going through tinyurl every time is not an option.

Excel 2007 :: Adding Characters In A Cell With Various Fonts

My group is putting "marks" in Excel (2007) work papers & sometimes they may want to add additional marks to those previously added in a selected cell. What I have below actually works, but I just got my VBA book last week & there has to be a better way.

Specifically, I've saved the "target" off in the same worksheet (That can't be good.) and delete it when I'm done writing it back. Can I save the original characters virtually, or to the personal.xlsb.

Dim charCount As Integer
Dim charStart As Integer
Dim rngTarget As String
charCount = ActiveCell.Characters.Count

Lookup Formula With Wildcard: Force Excel To See * & ? As Characters

There might be an easy solution for this, but I can't seem to figure it out. I'm trying to do a vlookup with the lookup value being #CFDMSMCSA*4. But the lookup table also has a value #CFDMSMCSAM4 in it.
It keeps returning the value for this #CFDMSMCSAM4 because of the * in the first string. Any ideas.

Excel Formula To Split Words With Characters Limit Per Cell?

Dec 6, 2010

I am suffering with split a long descriptions into 3 cells with criteria 1st cell not more than 30 characters, 2nd cell not more than characters and 3rd cell will locate the remaining characters there. I think this is quite easy if I use LEN/MID/RIGHT/LEFT formula. However, I wish the formula will smart enough to split word by word. refer to example below:-

"My lecturer replied, that i really did very bad in final, nothing's gonna change my plan."

If I use left(A1,30) formula, the result is "My lecturer replied, that i re"however, the word "really" is cut half way. I am finding the formula that split description to not more than 30 characters and won't cut my string and become incomplete word. Expected result should be 1st cell "My lecturer replied, that i", then "really did very bad in final," at 2nd cell.

Excel 2003 :: How To Remove Characters To The Right Of Last Occurrence Of Special Character

Mar 30, 2011

I have a column of text where I need to remove all the characters to the right of the last occurance of a special character.

I think a process like reading from right to left, look for the first occurance of the special character, and return the characters to the left of this position.

If I can determine the position of the last occurance of the special character, I could use the LEFT function.

The SEARCH function is close. It finds the position of the first occurance of text inside text but it reads from left to right. I need to read from right to left.

Another approach is to examine each character one by one from right to left. If the character is not the special character, delete it. When the character is the special character, delete it and stop the process.

There is no consistency in the text. The total lengths vary. The number of times the special character occurs in the text vary. The number of characters to the right or left of the last special character vary.

I much prefer not to have the solution be some VBA because I need to share it with others who are even less capable than I am. We are using Excel 2003.

Excel 2003 :: Compare Characters Between Two Columns And Output Results In Same Worksheet?

Feb 6, 2013

I have a worksheet with five columns (A, B, C, D and E)

The cells in Column B contain letters and/or numbers (without spaces) in no particular order.
The cells in Column C contain letters and/or numbers (without spaces) in no particular order.

I want to compare all characters in 1st Cell of Column B with all characters in 1st Cell of Column C, and display the matching characters in 1st Cell of Column D, and the character count of 1st Cell in Column D must be displayed in 1st Cell of Column E. note that multiple instances of the same character must not be treated as duplicates. When execution on 1st Row is finished then repeat procedure for Row 2, etc... Stop execution when first empty cell in Column B is located.

Example:

B1 = LJLM12
C1 = KY2MLK
B2 = ZCG4GM
C2 = X4GGGC
B3 = KTCBNG
C3 = GNBTBB

The script/code/formula must output the following:

D1 = LM2
E1 = 3
D2 = CG4G
E2 = 4
D3 = TBNG
E3 = 4

Excel 2007 :: Searching Range Of Cells For Certain Characters And Displaying Results

Jun 25, 2012

Column A & B has a list of Supplier Part numbers and Buyer Part numbers as below.

Supplier P/N
Buyer P/N

HGFYE/12
111111

HYEYDH/14
222222

[Code] ..........

Cell D2 is an open cell that any data can be entered into as a search term. What I am trying to do is search for a Supplier P/N that have the characters "H", "G" or "E" in it, so entering "HGE" into cell D2 would display the results into columns F & G as below.

Supplier P/N
Buyer P/N

HGFYE/12
111111

HDGTEY/56
333333

I can easily do a formula for 1 character or a string of characters.

To complicate it further, if the search term has in this example has "YFF", I would like the same formula/code to workout that the result in F & G should show this time

Supplier P/N
Buyer P/N

Excel 2007 :: Ensure Cell Postcode Have 8 Characters (including Spaces)

Oct 8, 2012

Excel 2007.I have a list of postcodes (UK) which have different lengths of characters (including spaces) from 6-8, however our system seems to add additional spaces inbetween the postcode, so it could have upto 11/12 characters (inc spaces) Below is what could come out:

EH21 6PQ - 1 Space (8 Char)
EH12 9HG - 3 Spaces (10 Char)
E1 8DF - 3 Spaces (8 Char)
LL5 1GH - 2 Spaces (8 Char)
L5 1FG - 1 Space (6 Char)

What I need is a formula to ensure each postcode only has 8 characters by inserting spaces between if there's less than 8 char and trimming if there's more than 8 char

So from the above postcodes the desired results would be:

EH21 6PQ - 1 Space (8 Char) - This would be correct
EH12 9HG - 3 Spaces (10 Char) - Trim off 2 spaces from the middle
E1 8DF - 3 Spaces (8 Char) - This would be correct
LL5 1GH - 2 Spaces (8 Char) - This would be correct
L5 1FG - 1 Space (6 Char) - Insert 2 spaces in the middle
