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" ?

How to write the function to extract the string of text after the last backslash () and before the period (.) (i.e. "123 & xyz in the above example"). The length of the path is inconsistent in the column; still the function should extract it.
I want to return the 7 letters of text that appears after the word Timer in cell A1. So cell A1 will be a sentence with the word Timer in it somewhere and I want to return the 7 characters after it appears.
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) loop take the value of varTemp, prepend it with 'dwd' and add it to the running list/array Loop Output the full list of DWDs
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.

I'm using the following formula but it is returning #VALUE!
The structure of my data (in each cell) is: Alpha Jan 13 35.00 Grams. So it is a record of an item (alpha in this cell), date (Jan 13), and number of grams. I need to find every cell that has this kind of record in a large data set, and after every occurrence of "Grams" I want to extract the number of grams. In this case 35.00. Note the place numbers are not equal. For example in another cell the record could be "Beta March 20 350.00 Grams".
Lets suppose that in a drop down box I have the words : "I" "want" "to" "create" "a" " sentence".
Well what I would like to do is have each word as selected in the drop down box, placed in another cell creating a sentence.
If you picked the words in order the cell should read: I want to create a sentence or it could read any combination of these words depending in the order they were picked. So it could read: I sentence want to create a sentence if the words were selected in this order.
