# Extract Cells With Largest Number Of Digits From A Column

Mar 29, 2014

I basically I have a column with numbers. All the numbers are positive integers. What I like to do is have a VBA function that extracts the integers with the largest number of digits. So for example if we have the following column:

12

123

234

12346

2345

[code].....

So basically we search for largest number of digits, and extract the numbers that fit this category, which could be just one number or multiple numbers.

## Extract Two Digits From Number

Oct 18, 2006

I want to extract the fifth and sixth digits from an 8 figure number i.e. 20010891 would equal 10.

I have tried every combination of Left & Right combined with Find that I know and nothing works.

## Extract Digits From A Single Long Number

Oct 17, 2011

I have in my cell a number, namely, 5260007005020024100055040300004110000000

What I would like to do is extract a set of digits from it,

Starting from the second 2, and shown here in the dots. I need all of the numbers in a separate cell, "52600070050200 .24100055.. 040300004110000000"

Hope this is clear. bearing in mind the number will remain as one so I would need to start at 14 then using LEN or something I'm not sure, extract the following 8 into another cell.

## Rounding Number And Then Shrinking Number Of Digits To Fit With Narrow Column

Feb 6, 2013

I have a number, eg, 1234567 and rounded to prepare the shrink of the size of the number like

## Find The Largest Number And Then Return The Name From A Different Column

Jan 15, 2007

I'm using the LOOKUP function to find the largest number and then return the name from a different column, it looks like this:

=LOOKUP(LARGE(round1!\$F\$2:\$F\$65,1),round1!\$A\$2:\$A\$65)

but all I get is hashN/A?

## Extract Largest Values From Column B And Corresponding Text Values In Column A?

Oct 1, 2013

There should be a formula to extract the largest values and its corresponding values. For example, if column

Products Costs
A1 Pen 200
A2 Pencil 125
A4 Apple 1500
A5 Xbox 222
A6 TV 100

The desired outcome

Products Cost
Apple 1500
Xbox 222
Pen 200
Pencil 125
TV 100

The second goal is extracting the top 3 largest values using a formula.

Sample file is attached for your convenience. Desired outcome is in GREEN.

## Return Largest Number Within A Range Of Cells

Aug 26, 2009

I'm looking for a formula to enter within a particular cell which will return the largest number that appears within a range of cells, for example the range H:133 through L:136. If it's any easier, only one number will appear within the range, though it could appear in any cell within that range.

## Find Largest Number In Array And Give Result As Column Heading

Aug 9, 2013

I'm trying to find the largest number in a row and then have the column heading (text) as the result. I can find the largest number by using =max(numb1, numb2 ....) but then how do I get the heading of the column as the result. An example of what I want to happen is below

Red
Green
Blue
Orange
Yellow
Result

2
4
3
6
1

[code]...

I anticipate an issue where 2 columns have the same largest number and not sure how to over come this either with multiple answers

## Retrieving Column Header For Largest Or Second Largest Value In Row?

May 12, 2012

I have a table showing interest levels in training courses from a group of schools, eg:

English Maths Science
School1 3 4 2
School2 7 1 0
School3 3 2 5

I want to identify the column heading for the first, second and third most popular courses. ie for School1 the most popular course is Maths, second most popular is English and so on.

I have tried using the OFFSET function, which worked if I provided the cell location of the required value. I then looked at the ADDRESS function to provide the cell location: eg For School2 find the 2nd most popular course:

But I have got stuck with what I should enter for COLUMN(data?) as I do not know in which column the second largest value is.

I am sure Excel has the required functionality.

## Extract Digits From Text

Nov 13, 2006

## UDF To Extract Digits From Variable Range String

Apr 28, 2014

I have a long string that has a list of digits in the middle that I want to extract. The string is variable length and the number of digits I want to extract is 5-7. I also have slashes in between the numbers I want to extract. I need a UDF that allows me to extract the 5-7 digit number from the string and restrict around the slashes (i.e. if two sets of digits in the string match the condition for extraction, extract the one around the slashes.) For example my original data is like

1. aaa/12345/aaa/123
2. aaaaa/123456/aaaaaa/3423
3. 323/aa/1234567/aa

and I want for results

1. 12345
2. 123456
3. 1234567

Is there a UDF that allows me to do this?

## Formatting A Number Field To Hold A Specific Number Of Digits

Feb 12, 2009

I wrote an excel program in Excel'03 for a dental office to manage state assistance patients and one of the table columns is the state assistance number. The problem is that the program defaults to a number format when it is entered instead of a text format, which is what I want. The issue is that state assistance numbers are always 8 digits and when it defaults to a number field the program drops the required preceeding zeros.

For example the number 00123456 will sometimes show up as 123456, which is wrong. It's like sometimes it will show up right and other times it gets a butterfly in its brain and deletes those zeros irritating the receptionist here. So, how do I get the table to either stay in text format or set up a number format that keeps the preceeding zeros?

## Pull/Extract Number Before Specific Character In Cells

Jun 10, 2008

What formula or function truncates a text field that is in the following consistent format:

number. name
ie. 3. Super Bella
and 150. Taoist

I wish to truncate the field so I have just the integer without the dot, space or word(s).

Tried Len, Left & Replace but they require a specific number of characters. Since the number can be 1 to 3 digits long, this doesn't work.

## Return Row Number With Largest Value

May 14, 2007

I've a column that contains numerical values. In my vba code, I have to select a block of cells at a time and get the row which has the maximum value.
One lame approach I am doing is wasting another column that extracts the max from the block of cells using Excel's Max function, and then doing a iterative search in the numerical column to get the cell tht contains the max value, and from it get the row number

Is there a better way such tht i can avoid the looping?

so in a nutshell, i want to get the row number from a range of cells that contains the maximum value
