Excel 2011 :: Extracting Data That Is Text Based (Mac)

Jul 26, 2014

I have a workbook with 2 sheets.

Sheet 1 will act as a summary for sheet 2, showing only the last 5 entries from sheet 2.

Sheet 2 is based on football results of a season which will have a total of 34 league games plus cup games.

Sheet 2 has 4 columns:

Game Number Home Team Result Away Team
1 United 2-0 City
2 Sportive 4-2 Uniao
3 Real 1-0 Ateltico
4 Villa 1-3 City
5 United 2-1 Real
6 Atletico 0-0 Villa

So sheet 1 will show the last 5 results as the season progress's and new data is added.

I have been able to extract column 'GAME NUMBER' using the following formula:

=INDEX('Back end 1'!A:A,MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307,'Back end 1'!A:A)-ROWS('Back end 1'!A2:A$6)+1)

I am struggling to find a way to pull the last 5 data that is text based.

I am using Excel Mac 2011.

Excel 2011 :: Conditional Formatting Based On Text Match From If Statement?

Oct 2, 2013

I want to highlight a cell if the text displayed from an IF formula is equal to the cell content.

CELLS BK10:BN10 are merged and have entered into them the following text "SELL"

Cells BJ20:BP20 are merged and contain the following formula which currently results in the cell displaying "SELL"

=IF(BM22<=-0.08,"SELL", IF(AND(BM22>-0.08,BM22 < -0.03),"NO INDICATION", IF(BM22>=-0.03,"HOLD")))

Cell BM22 is a percentage calculation of the differences between two different days of volume for this stock and that formula is: =(BH22/BH25)-1 Cell BM22 currently is calculating the result to be -65.65%

When I set up a CLASSIC Conditional Formatting using a formula (="If($BJ$20=""SELL""") to check the if the text in cells BK10 match the text displayed in cell BJ20 - I get no error messages and no formatting?

I am using Mac Office Excel 2011. I feel like I have tried everything including changing the Number selection type of the cells to TEXT. Nothing seems to works.

Excel 2011 :: Find Multiple Text Strings In Another Text String

Mar 8, 2013

How do I use an Excel formula to find which (if any) multiple sets, each of up to 50 words, exist in a series of rows of a spreadsheet - if set A has one or more words found in a searched cell.

A positive result will return a specific value in the designated result cell. If none of the words in Set A is found in the searched cell, the formulae will repeat the test for the words in Set B, and so on.

After all 50 sets of words have been tested, the formula will move to the next cell in the searched column.

New words will be added to the sets of words continually as required.

Multiple words within sets are included in double quotes. Within each set of words there will be some n-tuples of words (i.e. 24 adjacent words) that contain one or more of the words in the set, but for which the formula will be required to return a negative result. Example: Set A = word 1, word2, word 3, "word1 word2 word3". (The words within a set could also be each entered in separate columns, as opposed to all included in a single cell.) The single column of text to be searched is about 10,000 rows.

I am wanting to use the above in a spreadsheet that contains data downloaded from a series of bank accounts to automatically allocate items of expenditure to one of 20 or so different categories of expenditure.

The formula will search the description field to find words that are used in the in the downloaded files from the various accounts to describe each transaction.

If a word describing travel expenditure (e.g. hotel, "holiday inn" but not "holiday travel") is found in the description of an expenditure item - the item cost will be allocated to the TRAVEL EXPENDITURE column, which is one of 20 or so different categories of expenditure.

Happy to consider a different solution if the task can be done better a different way.

Tried using a combination of INDEX/SEARCH/IF in Excel, but was not able to get a correct result. PS I am using Excel 2011 for Mac - which does not allow macros, so the solution needs to be entirely formula based.

Extracting Rows Of Data Based On A Cells Text?

Jul 9, 2014

one of my suppliers can only provide me with a basic .xls product list as shown in the attached test sheet.xlsx.

Is it possible to create and run a macro from test sheet.xlsm that will extract data from test sheet.xlsx, specifically from below the heading on row 64 down to and above the heading on row 123 and paste into the (new) worksheet in test sheet.xlsm

This sheet is updated daily and all the heading rows are constantly fluctuating as products are sold and added.

I can do this manually easy enough but if there's any way that this can be automated

Excel 2011 :: Giving Text Fields Numeric Value For Use In Function?

Feb 15, 2014

I am creating a spreadsheet for results of a survey. I am trying to give numeric values to text fields so that I can place the cell values later into a SUM function. The text fields are entered into the spreadsheet via a drop down list in each cell I created by utilizing the validate button. The text field contains choices like The text field contains choices like “1 Very poor,” or “4 Very much.” The source for the list is on a separate sheet.

EX: If cell C5 equals the choice “1 Very poor,” and cell C8 equals “4 Very much” I want the cells to have numeric values of 1 and 4 respectively so that I can utilize an equation like =SUM(6-C5+6-C8) later in the spreadsheet to calculate aggregate scores.

Excel 2011 :: Shuffle Row Position After Data Refresh?

Jul 12, 2013

I am using Excel 2011 and we have a link data source to the outside SQL Server.

For the 1st step, I linked to the Database and retrieve the data.


2nd step. Sort the data by using the column "Description" Descending. Add another column to the table and put the 1, 2, 3, etc in that column.


3rd step. I clicked on "Refresh" and the new column values are not consistent. I mean they are moving. So, I added another row in the database to test and it becomes very obvious. It can be clearly seen at the following image. The value of "A" should always be "10", but it has been changed to "1" after the refresh.


how I could retain the position of another column after the data refresh?

Excel 2011 :: Pasting Data In Workable Format

Sep 14, 2013

I have switched from an ageing Mac Powerbook, Excel 2004 for Mac, and an out-of-date version of Firefox to an IMac with Excel 2011 for Mac and Safari as a browser. The only reason why I mention this is because I don't know if it was easier to do this on an older platform (one of those bizzare situations where going forwards is actually a step backwards).

In short I like doing things with Sports data in Excel. Usually I would hit my favourite website for pulling sports data (which incidentally I don't know if this has changed as I've been too busy to do much of this kind of thing for about 4 months - or if it is just a different format on a newer machine/different browser);

[URL] ....

The link should be showing NFL results for this year so far (I like the site as it has a handy amount of other sports etc.).

I would usually then go edit/paste special - unicode text and then hit the paste options, use the text import wizard, go delimited, tabs - and usually everything would come in on a row and then I could do what I need to do with it (e.g. use Excel's text functions to get the data - taking spaces out for example - to where I want it to do other things).

The problem I seem to be having now is that when I do the above - things no longer seem to come in on the same row (which makes life difficult for doing things easily with the data). Once things end up on different rows it becomes a pain to do basic things.

In short is there a way round this (or do I need to find another source for my data with tables laid out in a more friendly way to "borrow" data)?

Excel 2011 :: Using OFFSET And COUNTIF Inside Data Validation?

Oct 1, 2012

I have a from that work great in PC but if opened in a MAC, some of the functions will not work.

For example, There is one cell with Data validation that based on the value selected in another data validation cell, it should only display all possible options pertaining to value chosen. These are the values: a user select a customer based on customer name. The Data validation will the put the customer number in cell AF3. In another call with Data Validation I have this formula:

SHIPTO is the Name range for the tabs called SHIPTO with "Shipto!$A$1"
SHIPTOColumn is the Name Range for "SHIPTO!$A:$A"
Column A is where the customer numbers are.

This work fine in a PC but not in the MAC using excel 2011

Extracting Strings Of Text From Columns Of Data(text)

Apr 23, 2007

What I have is a column of data(text) which contains amongst all the text three strings of text in ever cell in the column which I require copying into three adjoining cells

The data I require is :-

(a) The persons name which is always after the word Requester e.g. Requester Steve Robinson

(b) Their office location which is directly after the persons name and is in brackets e.g. (Newcastle User)

(c) The Approving persons name which is preceded by Approved by e.g. Approved by Christine Hunting

See examples 1 & 2 below

Example 1

CR0/CRZ3651 Requestor Steve Robinson (Newcastle User) Tel: 01234 798157 Approved by Christine Hunting

Please install and configure 2 Ultra 2s (typhoon and lancaster) for use as ARTE workstations. These workstations require Solaris 2.5.1 plus the same patches as before

Example 2

CR0/CRZ3118 Requestor Doug Cunningham (Newport User) Tel: 0114 9881480 Approved by John Smithers

Please provide support to set up Cisco 2691 Router and PIX-506E Firewall to enable external connection of a remote terminal for project work.

As you will appreciate the text in the cells is of non standard lenght and the three pieces of information can be located virtually any where in the text

Extracting Numbers From Text Using Macro Or Excel Functions

Dec 10, 2012

I am trying to extract values from a text. I used macro to solve the problem. I was able to extract the numbers however i am trying not to extract all of the numbers in text. For example as you can see below, i am trying to get only 22.99 The only unique thing here can be $ sign i believe. I need to put a criteria that selects the number right after $ sign and extracts 5-6 decimals after that.

**work lamp/desk light led;orion8879 final price: $22.99 (store)**
this is the text in a cell and i only need 22.99 not 8879)

Excel 2010 :: Extracting And Manipulating Text From Cells

Sep 16, 2013

This could be a bit complicated, but hopefully also useful for others. We have the following sample of 10 cells from a large file with similar data:

N: 1; B: 162; M: 278, 278; T: 24; A: 103, 105; I: 393; Ḥ: 7240, 7390, 7465, 7546, 7617, 7756, 27399, 8380, 8741, 8894, 8985, 9559, 9671, 9741, 10119, 10211; W: 40; D: 766.
N: 2; B: 246, 889, 1136; M: 255, 255; A: 55; I: 286; Ḥ: 22731, 22802, 22857, 22906, 22948; D: 685.


We want to extract the same letters with its numbers and put the same letters with numbers in one column and do this for all letters, but - this is important - while keeping them in their original row. The purpose of this is addition of data and easy rearrangement of the letter plus numbers order, e.g., to: B M N A T I W D Ḥ. As you can see not all the rows have all letters, nor are the seizes the same. There are thousands of such cells. Some parts are partly in bold, we want to maintain that layout after sorting. Such a thing should be easy for computers, but how could this extraction and manipulation be done (I have Excel 2010)?

P.S. There are two spaces after every ; that were eaten up here.

Excel 2010 :: Extracting Name From A List Based On Criteria

Nov 15, 2013

I am using Excel 2010 on Windows 7. Here is a link to the worksheet I have a question about : Example.xlsx

The only two relevant sheets here are "TestScores" and "Area 1." What I am trying to do is copy names over from the TestScores sheet to the Area 1 sheet based their test scores. It is important to know that a passing score is anything 85 or above. If you don't pass Phase 1, you move onto Phase 2, and if you don't pass that you move onto Phase 3.

Let me first explain how the TestScores sheet works. Here is a screenshot of the sheet:

I copied in column C, the names, from a roster sheet. Columns A, B, and D all VLOOKUP information from the roster as well. You can ignore columns E & F. Column G is just a test name that is manually inserted. They are all in the same order since this is an example worksheet I am doing the program on before I input the real data. Column H is also manually inserted, with data validation to only allow values 0-100 and a few different relevant terms (MS, EXT ABS, N/E). These next two rows are the formulas in columns I and J, starting in row 3.

I=IF(H3="N/E","N/E",IF(H3="EXT ABS","EXT ABS",IF(H3="MS","MS",IF(H3="","",IF(H3>=85,"N/A (PASS)","Need")))))
J=IF(H3="N/E","N/E",IF(H3="EXT ABS","EXT ABS",IF(H3="MS","MS",IF(I3="","",IF(I3="Need","",IF(I3>=85,"N/A (PASS)","Need"))))))

What these formulas do is the following: If N/E, MS, or EXT ABS is in column H, it copies those over to the next two columns. If someone scores 84 or below, it says "Need" in the next column. If they score 85 or above, it says "N/A (PASS) in the next column(s). The user is meant to write over these to insert the phase 2 and 3 scores.

Here is the "Area 1" spreadsheet I am working on that has the problem.

First off, I created these formulas by comparing them to another post and replacing my ranges and criteria. In column A, it returns all the names of Team Members who passed in Phase 1 (have a score 85+ in "TestScores" column H). The array formula is below and it works great.


In column E I have a similar formula, except it returns the names of those Team Members who have "Need" in column I of "TestScores." This formula also works great. The formula in column D is just a VLOOKUP based on column E and works well, too.


Here is where my problem is. In column F, I want to return all the names of people who passed Phase 2, which means they have a score of 85 or above in column I of the "TestScores" sheet. However, not only is it not returning the right names, I can't even figure out what criteria the names is returns has. The current list, in (mostly, oops) red, is incorrect. The formula, below, is almost the same as the formulas above, with only 1 difference in each case.


It refers to column I, instead of H, compared to the formula in column A. Its criteria is >=85 instead of ="Need", in comparison to the formula in column E. Nonetheless, it still isn't returning the right names! The other weird thing, is if I replace the ">=85" with "=90" it will return the names of team members who scored 90.

Excel 2007 :: Extracting And Adding Values From Within Text Strings?

Jun 2, 2013

I am trying to extract values from a text string and add them up in Excel 2007. So far i have been successful in extracting the value out of the text string like this - =MID(I6,AD6,3) where AD6 holds the position number in the text string to start from. So it's working OK for one row but i need to do the same thing on multiple rows where the text string can be in different columns and I'd like it to automatically pick up the non-blank cell.

each row only has one column with text in it and the value i need to extract is always after "$". this is a working spreadsheet so the text string could move from column to column over time and I'd like my formula to be able to detect which column to read from. I then need to add up all the values from each row.

Extracting Source Data From A 'text-only' Pivot Table

Nov 29, 2007

I work in my Client's office and assist in settling construction disputes. Part of this work is to browse/search their server for documents that may assist in strengthening their case.

During this review I have found an excel document which is a text-only version of a pivot table, ie someone has done a copy, paste special, values into this sheet. I need to extract the original source data from this table back into the list format, as the original source of the data cannot be located

The row titles on the left are activity descriptions, the column headers are dates and the data in the body of the table is hours. As an idea of size the data is spread over 213 columns and 45 rows. Their are more blank cells in the table than entries.

What I would like to do is create the data in it's original form ie

Column A; Date
Column B; Activity Description
Column C; Hours

and have a separate row for each instance of an entry of hours from the pivot table.
