Extract 1st 2 Words & Middle Section From Text String
Jun 18, 2008
I have a text string with 3 data to be extracted and then split throu range, but only specific parts is needed.
string is like that:
Name Surname - Number : ################ - Exp : YYMM - Centre etc etc....
Lets say its allways happens in cell A3, for example:
Adrian Kukuwas - Number : 1235467890123456 - Exp: 1009 - Centre... I would like a macro:
*that runs only if string starts with a letter, then if so
*takes Adrian Kukuwas to cell D3
*takes 1009 (the exp) to B3 and makes it look like 09 10 (or 09_10)
*in A3 leaving only the number 1235467890123456 text formated (sometimes the copy source formats the cell for bad)
I want to write a macro that is able to copy the 5th position to the 10th position characters from one cell to another. For example, in Cells(B1) contains: Mon Jan 8 09:00:02 2007. Then I want to copy "Jan 8" to Cells(A1). How do I do that? Also, i am not supposed to hardcode the cells. The codes should look something like that
start = InputBox.... end = InputBox...
For i = start To End Cells(i,"A").Value = (whatever Function To copy 5th To 10th char of Cells(i,"B"))....... Next i
I have a several hundred rows of data that are telephone line type, number and user name all concatenated. This is the way the data arrives. I need to extract the number and user name into 2 separate columns - I do not need the phone type. Is there a formula that can identify numbers within text. I can't use Text to Columns as the leading telephone line type varies and I don't want to use VBA to do the work. There are at least 10 different line types, example of some:
SPECTRUM TIPT 0740357052 LUNCH ROOM SPECTRUM ANALOGUE 0744076642 J BROWN EXCHANGE LINE (PSTN/PSTN) 0742031346 HAYES SUB FAXSTREAM DUET 0742003232 NORTH SUBSTATION M/BANK (Spectrum) 0740318578 MB TO 4429 P PHONE (TELSTRA) 0744074159 B WILLIAMS WITHIN ANALOGUE 0784625967 I MAKIT
the following phones start witn an "N" PRIVATE LINE (PAPL) N7035896P ROTHMANS SUBSTATION PRIVATE LINE (VGDL) VOICE LINK N7563069P P BLACK PRIVATE LINE 2 WIRE PREMIUM (PAPL) N70079 FITZGIBBON G PRIVATE LINE 4 WIRE PREMIUM (PAPL) N70335 SUBS SSKLB
Can this be done or will I have to resort to code.
I need to extract text from the middle of a cell. I know you can use the MID function but with the complete function as i need to extract text string from Name to the end of their full name (I have highlighted below in bold). Of course their full name will change in each row.
Example text in cell B2: ID: 197993043 Name: Ben Fred Company: ID: 197992821 Name: Hello World!
I am looking for a formula to delete information from the middle of a text string. I have ~ 1,000 lines of data. Each text string is composed of the same way. The data I am looking for is two parts of the string (1) all the text up to and including the first % character (2) the last six characters.

I need to extract all instances of words that have format xnnnnnn, where x is an alpha character (letter of alphabet, to be precise) and nnnnnn are numbers. The words could something like u435586. The problem is I do not know how many instances of these words are in the string. The entire string is contained in a cell. A sample string could be something like:
I am trying to remove a middle initial from a text string however not all of the cells have middle initials. In column B I would like to return the first and last name. If needed I can have the first name in column B and the last in column C then combine them.
Example John A Smith John Smith John Smith John Smith
I have a column of text strings on Sheet1, Column A, which I need to check for the presence of keywords listed on Sheet2, Column A
So if any word from the keyword list on Sheet2, Column A is found in, say, cell A2 of Sheet1, the cell to its right (B1) should have a formula to display the count of keywords found in A2. I also would like to see each keyword identified either through a highlight or a list. I need the formula to NOT be case sensitive and the match does not have to be for whole words).
I have a set of task descriptions that I am attempting to trend on. Some of these (Column B) have the customer's name added to the description; others do not. I need to be able to make a list of task names (ColumnA), removing the name from the text string.
The formula I am using is [=LEFT(B3,FIND("for",B3)-2)].
The problem I am having is when the description does not contain the "for" built into the formula, I get "VALUE" error. What adjustment can I make to the formula to pull over the Description if the "for" does not appear in the text string?
An original text string entry appearing in an Excel cell would be:
"N7C Neuroprotective J5Z Antiviral, other M2Z Antiarthritic, other J5A Antiviral, anti-HIV"
I need to extract N7C, J5Z, M2Z and J5A from this string and list these alphanumeric values in separate cells adjacent to the original text string. The challenge is that these alphanumeric references may appear in different positions within the original string with no fixed value e.g. a "," separating them. The alphanumeric references may also be 3 or 4 characters in length and there may be different numbers of alphanumeric references in the original string.
Another example would be (very different from the first):
"T2Z Recombinant, other K5B Radio-chemoprotective J3Z Antibacterial, other D3A Vulnerary A10C Symptomatic antidiabetic K6Z Anticancer, other R8A Antiasthma B6A Septic shock treatment I1Z Immunostimulant, other S1Z Ophthalmological R8B Antiallergic, non-asthma M1A1 Anti-inflammatory"
You can see that in this further example "A10C" & "M1A1" are 4 character alphanumeric strings wheras the others feature 3 characters.
I need to be able extract a string from within a longer string. The information I want will always start 5 chracters in and be bordered by an underscore either side, but could be of any length. For example in the following string, I would want to extract WF602.
Is there a relatively simple excel function which will extract the end of a text string. The end has two or three full stops / periods so I would like to count back three to six or more characters and use the full stops as 'cut off points' by passing other full stops?
Below is a sample of data I need to extract the 8 digit number:
WO_32092_56228491_575482-113476-WP55 WO_32092_56228491_115130-WP55 WO_32092_56228491_115116-115118/115117-WP55 WO_32092_56228491_291881-318903-WP55 WO_259_56748761 WO_13895_52245652COUNTYRDN-30 WO_17368_51421730-A-ADDPOLEINFIELD WO_17368_50885431-A-ADDMISSINGPOLE WO_11021_52350485brock3377 In a spreadsheet, I had set up three columns where:
A: removed first three characters. WO_32092_56228491_115130-WP55 to 32092_56228491_115130-WP55 B: removed up to the _ . 32092_56228491_115130-WP55 to 56228491_115130-WP55 C: captured the first 8 characters left. 56228491_115130-WP55 to 56228491
I am pulling the data into Excel via an ODBC where there is thousands of rows of data. The three column process puts a tremendous strain on the processor.
Is there a formula that will extract the 8 character number without a three step process?
I have several lines with text strings containting three numbers in each line. I need a code to extract all three numbers from each text string. The numbers can be placed on the following columns in each row.
