Extract Numbers Only


CAn a formula/macro be provided to extract the numbers (including Decimal) from a cell value containing alphanumbers?
For eg.Down 3,492.00 INR should be extracted as -3492.00
Up3,492.00 INR as 3492.00

Please note that the numbers may be of any digit. If it contains down, then the number should be negative and if UP then positive.

Extract The Numbers
I'm trying to obtain a daily/monthly sales total. As you can see from the sample I've left, I have a number of different sales dep't and have to tally each one, but I have a situation where 1 of the dep't I need to keep a tally (including text) of what the amount refers to (but all in the same column, can't seperate them into different columns.......just in case of an doubts). What I need to accomplish is a formula for the following:

1- that it can recognize AND sum across the values. (TOTALS column)
2- that it can recognize AND sum down the SALES D column.

Extract Numbers, PO Box, RR# From Address
I have an excel spreadsheet database displaying 5.000 contact information such as my example below:

Title FirstName LastName Address
Mr adulted it is me 144 picton street e
Ms Moe Scally 1343 university court

What I am trying to do is put 144 in its own column to the left of address and the street name (picton street e) in its own column or the street name to the right of the address column.

Or as in the second example What I am trying to do is put 1343 in its own column to the left of address and the street name (university court) in its own column or the street name to the right of the address column.

In simple terms, this 5,000 enrties need to be sorted by street name only, exluding numbers, possible PO Box, or RR # 3, etc...

Extract Numbers From Text Into A Matrix
I have a large number of text strings representing chemical formulas. They include letters for the element names and numbers for the number of atoms of each type.
For example:

C18H35NO3
C4H7S
C11H16O2Na

etc.
The element name has either one or 2 letters (one capital, one small), if there is no number and no small letter after the capital letter that means that there is only one atom of this sort(like in C18H35NO3 - there is one N atom). If the element is not listed in the text string it means that it is not found in that particular formula (i.e. the numerical value is 0). Is there any function that could help converting such a vector (say A1:A3) into a matrix that will have the following form:

C H N O S Na
18 35 1 3 0 0
4 7 0 0 1 0
11 16 0 2 0 1

Extract Numbers From Alphanumeric Strings
I have this formula that extracts numbers from alphanumeric strings.

{=1*MID(A1,MATCH(TRUE,ISNUMBER(1*MID(A1,ROW($1:$100),1)),0),COUNT(1*MID(A1,ROW($1:$100),1)))}
However this extracts only the 1st instance of the numbers

In a string like 123avfbsdf4556.. it'll extract only 123.

My questions are the following:

1. Is there a way that i could get the result as 1234556

2. A way which refers to a cell where I put in a number and it'll extract those many number instances. In the above example, if I put the number as 1, it'll extract 123. If I put the number as 2, it'll extract 4556 and so on.

I guess this would require some modifications to the Match function so that it does not look at only the 1st instance.

I want to extract the positive numbers to column B in the amount of positive number rows(no skipped row/space):

5 5
-9 3

2 1
-4
-7

Is there a simple formula to do this? I have been doing IF functions but it is taking too long. And I have got the results I wanted.

but I want the numbers to be one right after the other (no blank rows in between).

How To Extract Column Numbers From One Cell
I a simple macro below that loops through columns and copies a value from each column. The columns to loop through are specified in cells F2,F3,F4 which contain numbers indicating the column number (currently 1, 4 and 7).

Sub Testing()
'For i = 2 To 4
Cells(6, i).Copy
Range("h100").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
Next i
End Sub

However, I would like to specify the column numbers in one cell instead across multiple cells. So, for example in cell H2 I could specify each column number separated by a comma
i.e. H2 would show: 1,4,7

Is there a way I could get the macro to reference that once cell only for the column numbers instead of in separate cells as currently? I'm assuming I need to use some clever text functions to extract each column number from the cell based on the comma delimiter and then feed into the macro?

The problem with the formulas I've got specifically define - pulling let's say LEFT, 2 characters.....when, I may need it to pull 2 or 3 or 4. I found something that's smart enough to look for ONLY ALPHA and strip those out and place them into one column. =LEFT(A1,MIN( FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"0123456789"))-1)

* I need something that's smart enough to look for ONLY NUMERIC. no matter how long the string is...and place those in Column C (like I mention in the example at the top).

Extract Numbers With Specific Text From Right Or Left

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)?

Extract Numbers For Square Footage Calculation
I'm a new member to the forum and have a question about extracting numbers from a string for a square footage calculation. I am trying to extract the two numbers of varying length on either side of an "x" within an alphanumeric string. As you can see from below, the only constant is that each string will contain an "x" (assume there will be no other "x"'s in the string). I am trying to achieve the following:

A1 = 36.5 x 112 --> B1 = 36.5, C1 = 112
A2 = 36.5x112 --> B2 = 36.5, C2 = 112
A3 = 36.5' x112 --> B3 = 36.5, C3 = 112
A4= 36.5'x112.5' --> B4 = 36.5, C4 = 112.5
A5= abc123 36 x 112.5' --> B5 = 36, C5 = 112.5

If there is a non-VBA code fix, that would be preferable (mix of MID,FIND,MATCH functions...?), but I am okay with some basic VBA.

Turning Red Font Numbers To Negative Numbers.
Usually this question is asked the other way around, but I have a somewhat unique problem. A certain website gives out tables filled with numbers. Positive numbers show in black font and negative numbers show in red font, but unfortunately, negative numbers do not include the minus sign -- the font is red and that's it!

I need a macro (or any other solution) that will turn the red font numbers to negative ones and would possibly format the cell to show negative numbers in red (I guess the last part is easier). The main problem is searching for the red font numbers and turning them negative.

Extracting Numbers From Alphanumeric Strings (strip Numbers?)
I import data from another program in order to evaluate it. Unfortunately, one of the fields I need contains copyright data, however, it has been very inconsistently entered into the database. For example, sometimes the data appears "c1999." or "-1999" or "" or "[1999]" or even "19?" and also sometimes "1999, 1990" and many other variations on that. I discovered the link in the excel help file about extracting numbers from alphanumeric strings, but my situation is still too variable for it to apply; that file didn't take into account that alphanumeric strings don't always lump numbers and letters together. I was able to correct a few things, but my command of excel isn't knowledgeable enough to really come up with something effective.

Some ideas I had that I don't know how to implement: is there a way to strip non-numerical characters from an alphanumeric string? (I've been doing some find/replaces to get rid of some of it, but that is obviously not very efficient when I have to repeat this process daily.) Perhaps then I could just detect the first 4 numbers of the string somehow. However, that doesn't solve the problem of when a wild card is used as in "199?" or "20?" etc.

Bottom line, I just need to grab the first four numbers that appear in the string (but NOT additional numbers that occur after a wild card or a space if the year was not completed in 4 numbers; in that case I'd just be happy with a null value).

I've been doing this with a formula so far. My only experience with macros has been in simply recording them, not actually writing them, but I'll give anything a try.

Converting Decimal Numbers To Text With Dot Numbers
we work with both Lotus 123 and Excel 2003. Lotus will be gone next year, but for now, the official mean to publish our reports is Lotus. With my work, I copy/paste a Lotus page to Excel. I use the following macro to convert Lotus format numbers (which Excel considers as text) to real numbers:

Sub ForceToNumber()
Dim wSheet As Worksheet
For Each wSheet In Worksheets
With wSheet
. Range("IV65536") = vbNullString
.Range("IV65536").Copy
.UsedRange.PasteSpecial xlPasteValues, xlPasteSpecialOperationAdd
End With
Next wSheet
End Sub

Source : http://www.ozgrid.com/forum/showthre...087#post184087. The problem is that I need to send back this data in Lotus. Excel considers decimal numbers with a coma as real numbers and numbers with a dot as a text. This previous macro fixes that. However, Lotus works the other way. Only numbers with a dot are considered real numbers. So I would need to find a way to code a macro that converts any numbers in the Excel sheet to a number with a dot. It's a bit like doing the opposite operation.
