This is very similar to my previous post, which was solved. Now that I've extract the numbers, I need to extract the text for the specific work activities, for example 13Z or 9GGG. I'm assuming some variation on this formula:
I am attempting to utilize the Mid, Left, and Right functions to parse out data returned in a single cell. There are twelve months of data returned with the "title" listed after. I would like to be able to FIND the title and return a specific number of characters of data to the LEFT not the right (as Mid seems to do).
Cell R2 contains this value: " Forecast Time: 240 Index A forecast = 9078.314". I want to extract the characters "9078.314" and put them in a different cell. The cell that it should be affected to depends on the characters "240". I believe I should use the MID() and VLOOKUP() functions but I get stuck at the very first step of extracting my data.
This should be simple, but I am struggling with finding a way to use the search or find function to identify text characters. This is my situation, I have for example a cell that contains FW023 or D1234. I need to be able to count the number of characters that are text.
i would think I would be able to do it with the search or find function, but can't figure out how to get it to just count the number of text characters with in it.
I have some cells in a spreadsheet that contain unique numbers as the beginning of the cell (these numbers are always ten characters). In the rest of the cell there is text. the data would look something like this:-
SGGHNVT561 - 3yr Maintenance
I also have some cells which dont have the unique number at the begging, so the data would just look like:-
In another table I have a list of the unique numbers and the name that they correspond to, for example (this is the 2 columns)
SGGHNVT561 - Dave HUKIDO8946 - Stuart HJUTIFHE78 - Graham
I have ben trying to construct a formula that only searches the beginning of the cells to see if it containts one of the unique numbers and if it does to put the name of the person beside the cell. If the unique number is not there to return a value like 'Check'.
i tried vlookup but then i ran out of ideas :/
this is what i came up with so far:- =IF(P7="","",VLOOKUP(P7,'[Master List.xls]Sheet1'!$B$2:$C$5,2))
The only problem i can see that this is looking for the full cell to be within the master list - but its really just the first 10 characters I want it to check
I have a column contains Postal Adress in more than 5000 rows. Column contains Door Number, Area, City and Zip code. I need to separate "Zip code" alone in next coulmn. Zip code (of India) will be in six digits like "600083" also some cases contain space in middle of zip code like "600 083" (after 3 digits). Is there any way to do this without doing cut & paste?
I have a column contains Telephone numbers with or without area code and country code for across the country (India). I need to extract the telephone numbers alone (neither area code nor country code). Telephone numbers will be 6 or 7 or 8 digits (not more than that). Is it possible to extract any set of numbers contain 6 or 7 or 8 digits continously? Some of the cases contains 2 contact numbers (2 set of 6 or 7 or 8 digit characters, between special characters will be there like slash, comma, space, hypen, etc.,
Column A in Excel has loads of numbers all in this format 971-417. I need to have each of those two numbers in a separate cell from each other(and without the hyphen of course).
Column A Needs to be: Column A Column B 971-417 971 417
In short, I'm looking for a quick way to put each number in its own cell for hundreds of rows. Are there formulas I can use to do this or does it have to be done slowly, one at a time, stripping the information from one cell to another?
Is there a way to specify if there are 46 characters in a cell, to apply text wrap, indent the second line, and resize the row height to 25.5?
For example, I always will have text on merged cells B7:C7. I'd like to have a macro that determines if the text goes over C7 (I figured that it would take 46 characters to do this), that the merged cells will be text wrapped, then row 7 will be resized to 25.5.
I know how to record a macro that will text wrap and resize the row height but am not sure how to do the "if" condition.
I wish to limit the number of text characters in a cell and have excel prevent the entry of additional characters after limit is reached. I have tried the Data Validation but it does not preven the entry of additional characters. I want to be able to show the error immediately when the limit is reached and no additional characters are permitted.
I have a problem that I just dont seem to have the brain power to solve right now. I have a list of websites and I need to extract all characters after the last / in the URL. URL example:.....
I have been using the find function in conjunction with LEN and RIGHT etc but the multiple instances of / is causing headaches for me. Also, the trailing string of characters that I want to extract can be both text or numeric and are of differing lenths.
I am trying to select and move text from one column to another. I have roughly 1,000 cells in column A and I would like to tell Excel to select characters at certain positions and move them into the adjacent column.
I want it to look like this...
column A column B ABCDEFGHI BCI
Each cell in column A has a 9-letter sequence. I would like to move characters 2,3 and 9 into the adjacent column
I'm faced with receiving data for time, in a text format, as follows:
Example of possible cell contents...
20secs 40m20secs 2h40m20secs
I'm not interested in the secs value but need to isolate the h (hours) and m (mins) values to use in another formula as numbers. The time could be shown in either of the above formats with either; (a) just secs, (b) mins & secs or (c) hrs, mins & secs... and of course the hours or mins values could be 1 or 2 digits in length. How can I determine (using formula only, not vba) what the values for hours and/or mins are dependent upon what is present?
I'm am trying to restrict the length of data that can be entered into a cell based on a drop down in that row. I have achieved this, but what I need to be able to do is use data validation to restrict the cell length to one of two values - so for example the length can only be 6 OR 9 characters long.
I cant see how to do this. At present the best I can do is rectrict to between 6 and 9 - but this would allow 7 and 8 which is not allowed.
I'm trying to automate a very laborious process where text data is taken from a series of cells in excel 97 and is turned into HTML tables - I've got it all working except for one thing, when I extract the contents of the text the paragraphs are lost and are merged into one long piece of text - obviously I need to insert <br /> characters where the paragraphs are to get this working. how I can extract text from with some kind of marker for the paragraph sections? Or is there a way to insert characters where the excel cell has a paragraph mark (ie a return key has been pressed).
