# Extract Specific Numbers From Text Strings

Jun 26, 2008

Need to write a Macro to only extract numbers from text, characters and numbers fields. I would like the numbers to be extracted in column B, C & D. I am only interested in numbers that begins with 200's, 800's and 4500's. see the attached file.

## Extract Numbers With Specific Text From Right Or Left

Aug 15, 2009

i use this code to get the value from the cell that contains "Ink"., and i got the codes from reading other problems:

=IF(SEARCH("Ink",a1),LOOKUP(99^99,--("0"&MID(a1,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},a1&"0123456789")),ROW(\$1:\$10000)))),"")+0

like this in a1 -> Ink 253.00

and totally working! but the problem is if the word "ink" in the left of the value --> 253.00 ink and the result is #NA, is there any way that i can get the value whether the word Ink is in the left side or right side of the value?

also bothered why is it if the word is not "ink" in the cell and return -> #value since i put ("") in the last part of If function(value if false)?

## Extract Numbers From Alphanumeric Strings

Mar 7, 2009

I have this formula that extracts numbers from alphanumeric strings.

{=1*MID(A1,MATCH(TRUE,ISNUMBER(1*MID(A1,ROW(\$1:\$100),1)),0),COUNT(1*MID(A1,ROW(\$1:\$100),1)))}
However this extracts only the 1st instance of the numbers

In a string like 123avfbsdf4556.. it'll extract only 123.

My questions are the following:

1. Is there a way that i could get the result as 1234556

2. A way which refers to a cell where I put in a number and it'll extract those many number instances. In the above example, if I put the number as 1, it'll extract 123. If I put the number as 2, it'll extract 4556 and so on.

I guess this would require some modifications to the Match function so that it does not look at only the 1st instance.

## 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.

## Extract Multiple Pieces Of Text Between Two Strings

Feb 11, 2014

In column E of row 1 I have one column with a long line of text containing information in that should be separated into cells for the following fields:

Year, make, model, drive, part, name, phone, text, email, location, notes, stream, date/time, disclaimer

Here is an example of the text in column E:

Year: 2001 Make: Nasa Model: big spaceship Drive:
Automatic 2 Wheel Drive Spaceship:
4 12.7 Liter ----------------------------- Part: Hood -----------------------------

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

The data in each field can be different lengths, and I would like to take pieces of text out of Column E, and put it in other columns in the row.

Each field has its own column, and I would like to copy the data for that field from the column containing all data to its respective column.

=MID(E1,SEARCH("Year:",E1)+5,SEARCH("Make:",E1)-SEARCH("object",E1)+5)

The formula above was inspired by an "extract text between two strings" post, but will not work.

I tried to make a formula that would extract everything between the strings "Notes:" and "Team Stream:" or for example, so I could get the result "Thank you for using our excel forum! thesmartestpeopleever.com" or "Year" and "Make" so I could get the result "2001" if using the example above. I was not able to do it.

I have attached a sample photo and an excel file.

How do I separate/extract each columns data to the appropriate column?

## Extract Text Strings Within Brackets From Range

Apr 12, 2008

I have a column of data in the following format:

Hardware (somethingsmall) otherinfo
Hardware ( somethingdisplaced)
Blackbox item (somethingelse) other info
Service(aservice)

etc

I need to extract the data within the brackets allowing for additional spaces for use in a second query which will search for each individual line item in turn.

For some reason the query does not like searching for the raw data in it's current format so I'm trying to extract the key information for searching instead.

I can do it in excel by:

(Assuming data is in cell V36)

'in colum x
=FIND("(",V36)

'in column y
=FIND(")",V36)

'in column z
=MID(V36,X36+1,Y36-(X36+2))

in column aa
=IF(LEFT(Z36,1)=" ", MID(Z36,2,20),Z36)

I have tried doing this cleverly in VBA and failed and then ended up trying to enter this code in the cells within the VBA code and do it that way but I'm having difficulty in doing this also.

## Extract Strings From Range Of Variable Length Text

Jan 18, 2008

I have the following issue. I have a list of strings. Each string contains certain characters that are exactly the same for all strings, some characters are different making the string longer (in some cases). What I need to do is extract some combination of characters from each string. The strings look like this:

AB & CDE & FG & I mmmm yyyy.HIJK
AB & CDE & FG & II mmmm yyyy.HIJK

The part "AB & CDE & FG & " (incl. spaces) is the same for each string. The next part contains a roman count from I to VII, causing the length of each string to vary. The "mmmm" part contains the current month spelled in full e.g. December. This part differs as well, for each string. The "yyyy" part contains the year in four digits, e.g. 2007. The part after the dot is the same for each string again.

What I need to do:
- is to extract the month and assign it to a new string
- extract the year and assign it to a new string
- extract the roman number, translate it to a normal number (II -> 2) and assign to a string (or integer).

## Find Specific Account Value From A Range Of Text Strings

## Find Numbers In Text Strings

Nov 21, 2006

I have several cells in a column that look something like this:

Cell A1: abc 1234 def ghi
Cell A2: xxxx aa b 245 qqqqq
Cell A3: abcdefg hij kl mnopqr s

Is there an excel formula or combination of formulas I can use to identify:
(1) whether any given text string (such as those above) include numbers, and
(2) what the first number (which could contain 1-4 digits) contained in the text string is?

## Extract Numbers After Specific Words?

Mar 13, 2014

I am trying to extract numbers after a specific text in a text, for eg :

abc SN 12345 xyz
edf SN No. 456 mno

As per above, i want to extract any numbers afters "SN". the numbers can be vary in digits i.e. it can be 3 digit numbers or 4 or 6. Also, at times there is some other text in between (like SN No.) numbers and search word (i.e. SN)

Any formula to get result as "12345" and "456".

## SUMPRODUCT Exclude Numbers And Text Strings?

Apr 19, 2014

I'm trying to sum up the total of a list excluding a list like this:

Column B
012*
019*
1758*
70228
70229
70230
70241

In my worksheet 1, it contains e.g.
Column AC
012-something
012-text
019-jumbo
016-things
70228
70221

Column W contains the numbers I want to add up:
\$15
\$12
\$10
\$19
\$15
\$11

My current formula is:
=SUMPRODUCT(--ISNA(MATCH(Sheet1!AC\$4:\$AC\$157,B2:B7,0)),Sheet1!W4:W157)

It has managed to exclude the numbers (e.g. 70228, 70229, etc) but not the text strings (e.g. 012*) when summing it up

## Delete All Numbers Like: #####-## From Text Strings In Cells

Jun 23, 2008

I need to remove multiple instances of pages numbers from a 2000 character text string I have dumped into a cell. The spacing is not equal between the page numbers but they always take the form |#####-##| i.e. bar delimited 5 digit-2 digit. I tried SUBSTITUTE but it will not accept wildcards. I was thinking of looping through a SEARCH. The numbers are ordered ie |00001-01| to |00001-25| then |00002-01| etc, stopping at 25. This might lend to looping but I couldn't wrap my head around the VBA to accomplish that. A sample of the text

"|00006-01| (Defendants' Exhibit Nos. 1,2 marked for |00006-02| Identification.) |00006-03| BY MR. JOHNSON: |00006-04| Q. Doctor, I am handing you Exhibits 1 and 2. |00006-05| Exhibit 2, is that the one that you brought with you, |00006-06| the deposition notice of today? |00006-07| A. I believe so, yes." Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;I should have said this before but this is for use on Excel 2003 WinXP.

## Macro To Find And Extract Specific Numbers?

Jul 29, 2013

I have 20 numbers from D3 to W3. Numbers range from 1 to 80. There are several rows with numbers.

I would like a macro to pic from each row specific numbers and copy them to EC3.

## Text To Columns - Separating Numbers From Character-strings

Feb 10, 2014

I have a field that contains rows of data, each made up of a Number followed by Text. The length of the numbers differ - sometimes 4 digits, sometimes 5 or 6. Similarly, the text differs by word-count. An example is

75698 Dog & Duck
634 Crown

I want a way of dividing the numbers from the text (numbers in one column and text in another).

Standard 'Text to Columns' won't work: I can't use 'Fixed Width' due to the number-length varying, and I can't use 'Delimited' and [space] as it will then split all the text up word-for-word (concatenating them back will take ages as my list is 480 rows long).

## SUMIF - Text Strings With Numbers / Exact Matches / Asterisks

Jun 19, 2013

Doing some job costing on our lowes invoice and am using SUMIF and asterisks to account for all the different names that get used for properties by the cashiers. An example of that range column is:

67TH AVE
19112 PONCA

51ST
STERLING

9420 67 ST
1503 SW 13TH

51ST
10818

19112 PONCA
19112 PONKA

I have formatted this whole column as text and get strange results from sumif when there are exact matches. For example the "10818" string is uniform through the spreadsheet and returns a result of 0.00 if entered as "*10818*" for criteria but returns the correct amount if I use "10818" or 10818 with no quotes.

It seems to be related to the text strings that contain just "numbers" as I'm having no trouble picking up exact matches when there are alpha characters.

## Extract Numbers From Text Para And Sum Extracted Numbers?

Jan 27, 2012

I have a text string in cell A1 as below:

repairs booked in Dec,11 (INR 37k)
training fees Dec,11 (INR 42k)test Fee Reimb for 03 emp Dec,11 (INR 56k)
skill fees booked in Jan,12 INR 52k
Reimb for 01 employee in Jan,12 INR 8k fee accounted- xyz INR 250k, Quick solutions INR 52K, ABCD India INR 272K, Layer Technologies INR30K and complex mgt INR 21K

Note: (INR 37K) means negative number i.e. -37

Now my task is to manually total the above amounts in calculator, i.e.

-37-42-56+52+8+250+52+272+30+21 = =550

like this there are 100s of cells, could derive a formula for this task.

## Extract Specific Text From A Text File

Jun 22, 2006

I had VBA run a third-party program ("HYD") using data listed in my spreadsheet. HYD produces a textfile and I want to extract a number from that log (line 58, columns 6-10 to be exact).

I started with

Open "C:TempHYDLOG.TXT" For Input As #1

but I don't know how to have it skip down to line 58 or which function to use to extract the number I want. I've read through tons of help files and forums but none of them treat anything as simple as scrolling down to specific lines.

The entire subroutine up to that point is as follows: ....

## How To Extract Specific Text From A Worksheet

Nov 10, 2009

I have a spreadsheet which is an extract from another application's DB, and it's just ugly in Excel. No nice neat columns etc. Data from some tables of the other application were just dumped into cells. Some of the data I need is scattered about the worksheet in various cells. There are no seperators that are common, no common length of text strings I could use to pull every X word etc.

The one common thread I am working with here, is the the data I need to extract ALL begins with the first 4 letters, and containers a total of 8 characters. For example:

A3 - The dogs collar had the name ABCD1234 on it
J9 - Today I found a dog collar at the store, and it read ABCD2345
c5 - It says ABCD3456

I'm trying to basically see if there is a way/function within excel that can go through all of the cells and extract anything that says ABCD? (and the 4 wildcards after it)

The Find all function finds them all, but trying to just extract the data ABCD? info.
