VBA - Extract Part Of A String According To Position / Markers

Sep 11, 2012

I have been confronted with an issue that has bugged me: Now do I extract a part of the string according to lets say "markers"?

Here is what I mean:

I use the code below to get the bottom range of my tables:

Code:

blimit = Activecell.Address

I haven't had problems because my tables were small, then I would:

Code:

blimit = Right(blimit, 3)

If the table was small there was no problem, since lets say the Activecell.Address = "$C$123", resulting in blimit = 123.

My how do I extract a part of the string, knowing I have 2 "$" ? That way I would make a version of this that always works.

I cannot use FIND or any formulas I am aware of since they all start counting from Right to Left... I thought of using Replace() to get the first "$" and change it for something else like "-" then looking for the second "$". But Replace() basically changes both signs... making my idea... well obsolete...

Remove First Part Of String Of Text And Keep The Second Part?

Feb 12, 2014

Is there any way to remove the first part of a string of text in a cell and save the second part?

The first part of the text string is a team code that has a variable number of numbers, capital letters and sometimes spaces. The second part of the text string is a variable number of words in a team name that all start with a capital letter and have lower case letters. Every line has a different team code and team name.

The original spreadsheet also has a column with just team code. Is there a way of using this column to "subtract" the team code from the text string to just leave the team name?

Delete Row If Cell Contains Certain Text As Part Of Text String?

May 15, 2014

I have a column of data with letters in each cell, no numerical, only alpha. Now, some of those cells contain the letters "adj sub" as part of the text string in each cell. "Adj sub" is always at the beginning of the text string. As an example, a cell will look like this - "adj sub mhm". I want to delete rows whose cell description does not contain "adj sub" as part of the text in the cell.

VBA To Delete Part Of Text String

Aug 15, 2014

I am trying to delete part of a text string for a range of cells. The code I have so far deletes the first set of letters but is looking in every cell in the range.

Ideally I would like it to only look in the cells of col B where there is data then only delete the first 10 letters if the cell begins with "Service ID"

Sub DeleteServiceID()
Dim c As Range
For Each c In Range("B1:B1000")
c.Value = Right(c.Value, 10)
Next c
End Sub

Removing Part Of Text From A String

Feb 11, 2013

I belong to a fantasy cycling league and after every race, I copy the race results to award each rider their points for the day. The site I visit most frequently lists the riders results in this format:

1. Alberto Contador (Spa) Team Sax Bank Tinkoff 4:05:00
2. Lance Armstrong (USA) Team Livestrong etc... 4:06:00

I usually copy the results to my spreadsheet then calculate each riders points.

The'results end up looking like this in Excel:

1. Alberto Contador (Spa) Team Sax Bank Tinkoff 4:05:00
2. Lance Armstrong (USA) Team Livestrong 4:06:00

So, the data ends up in 3 cells. The position in one cell, the rider and their nationality and their team in another, and the time of arrival in another cell

Is there a way in Excel where I can get rid of or delete all the data after a rider's name?

I usually end up pasting the rider information to Word, then replacing the (***) with a tab symbol, then pasting back to Excel and get rid of the data that's after the name by deleting the cells to which that data was transferred.

Is there an easier way to do this in Excel, or a macro I can create?...

Extract Text From Given Point In Text String When Data Points Do Not Share Given

Jul 9, 2014

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?

Extract Multiple Text Strings From A Long Text String

Sep 4, 2009

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.

Lookup Part Of Text String In Userform ComboBox And Search For Value In Sheet Range

Feb 12, 2014

I have a worksheet with following values:

A
B
C
1
Shorts
75

[Code]...

Also I have a Userform with 2 ComboBoxes named "ComboBox1" and "ComboBox2". Values in ComboBox1 is "Pull my pants", "Eat my shorts", "Socks for everyone".

What I would like to do is to search though column A and look for any of these textstrings in my selection in ComboBox1 and return the value from column B in column C.

Example: "Pull my pants" is selected in ComboBox1 then the value "pants" should be found in column A and value in column B (25) should be entered in cell C2.

I am fairly new to VBA and have spend hours searching Google and found some formulas like InStr and VLookup. My problem is that I am not sure if these statements will do the job and how to combine them.

Extract Number From Text String?

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_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?

So for instance,a cell could contain anything from the following B9, B11, S32, Ca44, Mo100, I129, Th226, U238 etc etc. I know I've seen this done before, but I can't find it now. It also has to be formula based, not using VBA.
