## Counting Cells With Numbers In Column That Contains Specific Words

May 9, 2014

I'm trying to build a function, but I haven't been able to successfully navigate some of the eccentricities of Excel formula-building.

Right now I am working on counting all of the cells that contain numbers (so likely just a =COUNT function), but will be eventually getting other descriptive stats as well. My problem is that I would like to create a formula that will perform the counting/mean calculation, etc., but only on a specific column that has the header cell that contains several specific words. Rather than having to type in the target words for each column, I would like to have the target words in the function be imported from multiple designated cells.

For example,

I want to find how many numbered cells are found in column E headed as "dog brown," but I also have columns headed as "cat brown" "dog black" etc. (which I will be using the formula on later) to paint a small picture, in my descriptive table, "dog" is in B31 and "brown" is in C30, then "cat" in B32 and "black" in D30.

## 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)?

## Auto-calculate 2 Column That Contains Numbers And Words Words

Jul 16, 2009

I've been using conventional method to do this and it's time consuming. I would like to total up 2 column. A multiply B to be exact. Below are some examples:

Table 1 - Before totaling up:

Quantity
Product
5
2 x Button A White
3
4 x Button B Pink
4
5 x Ribbon A Black
2
6
2 x Cloth A Blue

Table 2 - After totaling up:

Quantity
Product
10
Button A White
12
Button B Pink
20
Ribbon A Black
6
12
Cloth A Blue

I need to have the sum of the "Quantity" multiply "Product". Or in short A x B.
And the end result need to have the number and "x" sign removed while keeping on the the products names. (2 x ) Take note it's "number" space "symbol" space.

## Extract Last Three Words From Sentence

Feb 8, 2008

I'm running 2007, and have a mailing list that is setup - A1 = text(full name of company), A2 = text(full street address, city, state, zip) NO PUNCTUATION.

I have been able to separate each word for the address line, but this leaves me with many different length addresses spread out over different cells, so taking just the city state and zip is not feasible in large numbers. I have over 10,000 of these listed down column A1.

I need to be able to extract city, state, and zip, (There is no punctuation in the address line)and put them all in one cell, for the third line of the address box. I need them to cut from the source, also - leaving the source only the street address.

## Extract Uppercase Words From A Cell

Apr 23, 2014

I am looking for a formula that would extract uppercase words from a cell. I have cells containing this kind of sentences:

so I started with this Macro to extract uppercases and punctuation:

Public Function majuscules(zone)
Dim sel As Object
Dim i As Integer
Application.Volatile
For Each sel In zone

[Code] ........

It works pretty well but gives all the uppercases, and what I want is only those of words fully in upper.

Is there a way to tweak this formula so it gives all the uppers that touch another upper.

In the example case, it should return:
"FROZEN PRODUCTS; ;FROZEN FISH; "

The little cherry on the cake would be if it could give me:
"FROZEN PRODUCTS; FROZEN FISH"

## Extract Multiple Fixed Format Words From String?

Jun 23, 2014

I need to extract all instances of words that have format xnnnnnn, where x is an alpha character (letter of alphabet, to be precise) and nnnnnn are numbers. The words could something like u435586. The problem is I do not know how many instances of these words are in the string. The entire string is contained in a cell. A sample string could be something like:

SMNTv922970;#1283;#SMNT 433925;#1284;#SQRS 003417;#1285;#SQRSp047683;#1286;#SMNT 6132451;#1287;#SQRSw3145627;#1288

and the end result should be

The words are preceded by the character "" which might facilitate the search.

## Searching For Specific Words

Mar 15, 2007

I have 1000 diff names in a spread sheet and wish to search another spread sheet with these names on and alot more.

I want the search to look in the larger spread sheet for these 1000 names
and copy all the informtaion in the cells to a new sheet, if the name is not found i would like something like "no info found" to be seen.

## Lookup On Specific Words

Apr 29, 2014

I have two sources of information that I need to look up on, but one of the sources contains other words within the same cell?

For Example I have a source of data which contains all our client names, and I need to search for the client name in a second source of data to bring through the value from another cell, however the table array that I would do the look up on contains both the client name and project name together in one cell - therefore I am unable to do a normal Vlookup - also the client name is not always the same number of letters.

See an example:

Source data 1:
Client name:
XYZ Ltd

Source data 2:
in cell A1 XYZ Ltd/project ABC
in cell A2 shows the value e.g.: £5000

Would there be anyway to do a look up on XYZ Ltd to bring through the value in A2 on source data 1?

## Determine If Cell Has Specific Words?

Jun 18, 2008

Basically, I want a formula that searches for more than one word anywhere within a cell, and if the cell contains any of those words somewhere in it then I want to display a value, but if the words aren't there, then stay blank.

For example, my cell could say: "Magenta, Rose, Lime, Lavendar". I want to search this cell for any of the these words: "Lime", "Forest" or "Teal". If any of these appear, I then want the cell with this formula to say "Green".

I know the formula to search for only one word /phrase in a cell, I use: =(IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("yellow",A1)),"colour","-")), (i.e. if the word "yellow" appears anywhere in cell A1, then this cell will show the word "colour", if not then a "-".) I tried adding an 'OR' function in this to search multiple words but it didn't seem to work.

## First IF To Be Ignored If Specific Column Contains Any Of The Words Shown

Jul 21, 2009

=IF((P3<\$Q\$1),E3-S3,IF((G3="B"),"Not Changed",IF((G3="MT"),"Not Changed","Not Changed")))

Above is the formula I'm trying to get to work but it's not-a-happenin. It seems like the first IF overides all of the others. Basically I want the first IF to be ignored if column G contains any of the words shown. So basically what I think is happening is that P3 is less than Q1 so it's ignoring the rest of the IFs.
Originally my formula worked fine as:

=IF(P4<\$Q\$1,E4-S4,"Not Changed")

But I realized that i needed a certain category of product ignored. Products are labeled in column G.

## How To Return One And Two Words Before And After Specific Word

see blue colors in the sky - 1 word before=see; 1 word after=colors; 2 words before=see; 2 words after=colors in

## How To Delete All Words Containing Specific Characters

May 14, 2014

I need a formula which can clean up a huge data set. Essentially i need to delete the entire word which contains the characters "aceae". note that "aceae" is a suffix, but i need to delete the entire word not just the suffix, plus keep the rest of the string. i have tried the "find and replace" function of excel with wildcard, but that deletes everything before/after without deleting the entire word. i have tried a combination of formulas to isolate the unwanted words, but that method is inefficient and inaccurate. below is a schematic of what im looking to do:

Column A ------------------------------ Column B
l. planeri asteraceae africa laselva-----> l. planeri africa laselva
l. planeri moraceae europe singer------> l. planeri europe singer
origin l. fluviatilis bignoniaceae asia----> origin l. fluviatilis asia
alternate l. fluviatilis piperaceae asia---> alternate l. fluviatilis asia

## Delete Rows That Contain Specific Words

Nov 10, 2006

how to create one macro: I have a spreadsheet with 8 columns with various text headings. Each column has different data (some show dates, some show only figures, some show text). Specifically, column E (entitled "Sub Item Reference") has various text entries (e.g. "Newsletter" or "Booklet"). I am hoping to find a simple macro that will search column E and delete any rows where that column contains the text "Cover" or "Label". I'm sure it's the simplest thing going but I can't seem to work it out.

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