Extract String Between Characters After Specific String

Dec 22, 2013

I have the following type of info in A1,A2,A3...

citySan Jose

My goal is to get as close as possible to this,so it will be easier to sort and manage

nameHarryage50citySan Joseheight180

I can't use the "" sign as delimiter to separate them into different columns because the age,city,name and height fields are in random positions on different cells.The good thing is person's name will always come after "name" string, age is alwals followed by "age" string, so it cannot be like nameheight40Michigan180

I think the following would be the easiest method(not for me tho).If on B1 I had a formula that said "find the string "name" and write anything after it until you reach the next "" character".On C1 field I could have a formula "find the string "age" and write anything after it until you reach the next "" character.On D1 I would have the same for "height" string,then on E1 for city string.

My question is somewhat similar to this one
Extract A String Between Two Characters

Formula which outputs the data between 3rd and 4th instances of the "_" character.Can we substitute "3rd and 4th" with a specific strings like "age" or "height" ?

=TRIM(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(MID(A1,FIND("|",SUBSTITUTE(A1,"_","|",3))+1,LEN(A1)),"_",REPT(" ",LEN(A1))),LEN(A1)))

Extract All Occurences Of Specific Word

Aug 16, 2008

Cell in excel containing large amount of text. Contains the following text one or more times (including the speech marks): "Provide Dwd/Dwl Number: DWD*****"
What I need to do is extract all of the DWD values from this cell, load into an array and dump them into another cell. It's the extraction bit that I need to sort out. In my mind the way that the code should work is:

Find all instances of 'dwd'
For each instance of 'dwd'
check the next/proceding character.

if the character is a space, check the next one
if the character is not a number or space, break and go to the next instance of 'dwd'
if the character is a number add it and the next 5 characters to a temp variable (varTemp)
take the value of varTemp, prepend it with 'dwd' and add it to the running list/array
Output the full list of DWDs

Extract Nth Word & Remove 1 Character

Jun 15, 2007

I have the function below from http://www.ozgrid.com/VBA/extract-words-function.htm
and have it working exactly as it's supposed to. Is it possible to adapt this to remove the last character of the text string, specifically the commas? My problem is that the raw data in one cell is like this (including commas) 0.333, 5.8874, 6.85423, 0.025. I separate each text string into separate cells but am left with the commas. I'm not using the "Data Text to Columns" option as I need the results in specific cells so they can then be used in calculations.

Function Get_Word(text_string As String, nth_word) As String
Dim lWordCount As Long
With Application.WorksheetFunction
lWordCount = Len(text_string) - Len(.Substitute(text_string, " ", "")) + 1
If IsNumeric(nth_word) Then
nth_word = nth_word - 1
Get_Word = Mid(Mid(Mid(.Substitute(text_string, " ", "^", nth_word), 1, 256), _
. Find("^", .Substitute(text_string, " ", "^", nth_word)), 256), 2, _
.Find(" ", Mid(Mid(.Substitute(text_string, " ", "^", nth_word), 1, 256), _ ............................

Extract Each Word In Cell With Delimiter

May 23, 2008

I am trying to extract the first letter of each word in a string. The string can contain either a space or a "/" as a separator. e.g. blue green or blue/green. If there is no space or "/" in the string, I need to return the 1st 2 characters.

I'm using the following formula but it is returning #VALUE!

=IF(ISBLANK(T2),"",IF( FIND(CHAR(32),T2), LOWER(LEFT(T2,1)&MID(T2,FIND(CHAR(32),T2&" ")+1,1)),IF(FIND(CHAR(47),T2),LOWER(LEFT(T2,1)&MID(T2,FIND(CHAR(47),T2&" ")+1,1)),LEFT(T2,2))))
