# Extract Two Separate Numbers Of Varying Length From Text Field

May 24, 2014

a formula to extract the numbers into two separate fields. The text may vary in length and the numbers vary in length also from 1 digit to 2,000,000.

Data in A1 is as follows:-

## SUMIF- Column Of Contract Numbers Of Varying Length

Mar 27, 2009

I have a column of contract numbers of varying length. I want to run a sumif of all of the values on my reference sheet that have the contract number beginning with the contract number in my listing. All of the the contract values in my reference sheet are very long. Since the numbers I am working with vary in length, i don't know how to match this string in the sumif function

I want something like this

=SUMIF('Reference Sheet!\$A\$5:\$A\$13410,LEFT("", LEN('Select Contracts'!\$C6))='Select Contracts'!\$C6,'FINALIZED DATA'!\$H\$5:\$H\$13410)

Is there a way to refer to the range in the sumif function,

## Pull Varying Length Text From Cell Text

Jul 2, 2007

I need to find text within middle of a string.
Character before required text is say AAA
Character after required text is say BBB
Text required can vary in length.
Extract text and place in another column.

All text in a single column, required text not in every line. but
does repeat.

## Combine Rows Of Varying Length And Varying Number Of Occurrences

Jun 28, 2012

There are 11,000 rows and 4,000 are unique. The goal is to merge the data down to the 4,000 records. Each of the unique entries shows up 1 to 15 times.

In trying to solve this, I wonder if I should break this down into the different # of occurances and implement specific solutions. e.g., There are

5700 entries that show up 2x
504 that show up 3x
24 that show up 12x

## Concatenate Varying Numbers Of Cells Based On Duplicates Found In Separate Column

Jul 25, 2011

I need to concatenate varying numbers of cells based on duplicates found in a separate column, but I'm not sure how to approach it. I have 41,000+ rows of data, so I have to find a formula.

Example:

1AB2Denton, PaulFB357D4D3OwensTest, MarcyFB539F934Brennan,
JosephFB539F935Bowser, AmyFB539F936LaRock, ChuckFB667D3B

Based on duplicates in column B, I want to combine the data in column A into one cell. The duplicates in column B could be only 2, or could be 20+.

## Separate Contents Of Column Of Numbers Based On Their Length?

Mar 5, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with numbers like this

9404388
9404374
9404391
9405695
38301663
9409724
1791016
9435145
9530758
9440464
9441182
71000569
9467438

There are a thousand numbers like this, I was wondering how I can move the cells with 7 numbers to the right column, and keep the cells with 8 numbers where they are (or move them to the 3rd column to the right)

## Extract Varying Lengths Of Text

Jul 9, 2007

I have a column of data that contains suburb, state and postcode (zip code). I can extract the postcode quite easily using:

=RIGHT(H2,4)
However, sometimes there is one word for the suburb, and other times there are two or more words. Also, the state abbreviation contains either two or three letters:
MARYBOROUGH QLD 4650
BRAY PARK QLD 4500
TEA TREE GULLY SA 5091
Does anyone know of any code I could use to extract the three pieces of information into three new columns? (I.e. Suburb, State, Postcode)

I imagine the formula would contain some method of counting the number of paces; however, the number of spaces between each word may be more than one space.

## Extract Date From Varying Text

Feb 14, 2008

I am trying to extract dates from text strings of varying lengths. The date may appear anywhere in the string. The dates are all 8 characters, in the mm/dd/yy format.

For example:

12/12/2007 is the date in this string.
There is a date of 12/12/2007 in this string.
The date in this string is 12/12/2007.

## Extract Numbers From Field?

Sep 18, 2012

I run this report from ADP and it only comes out in PDF or txt. I copied and pasted it to Excel, but it comes out funny. Below is a sample of the data from one field and I am trying to extract the 6 digits (it's the employee ID) from everyones name with a macro to the adacent column (.i.e data is in col B3, I would like the output to be in cell B4)

The problem is the 6 digit numbers isn't in the same location and I didn't know how to extract it.

Sample Data

MEYOR,SAM 010046 A 07/30/1979 -----> 010046

000548 A MOLINA,DARREN 06/01/2002 -----> 000548

## Extract Number Of Variable Length From Text String

Jan 25, 2007

Imagine that I have this list of thousands of customers, who are listed in column B in the format "customer no+space+customer name".

Now I want to extract ONLY the customer no from the text string in column B and insert it as number value in column A on the same row.

Would have been easy with "Left" command, but as the customer numbers have variable length, I have a problem.

## Extract Strings From Range Of Variable Length Text

Jan 18, 2008

I have the following issue. I have a list of strings. Each string contains certain characters that are exactly the same for all strings, some characters are different making the string longer (in some cases). What I need to do is extract some combination of characters from each string. The strings look like this:

AB & CDE & FG & I mmmm yyyy.HIJK
AB & CDE & FG & II mmmm yyyy.HIJK

The part "AB & CDE & FG & " (incl. spaces) is the same for each string. The next part contains a roman count from I to VII, causing the length of each string to vary. The "mmmm" part contains the current month spelled in full e.g. December. This part differs as well, for each string. The "yyyy" part contains the year in four digits, e.g. 2007. The part after the dot is the same for each string again.

What I need to do:
- is to extract the month and assign it to a new string
- extract the year and assign it to a new string
- extract the roman number, translate it to a normal number (II -> 2) and assign to a string (or integer).

## Extract Separate Numbers From Letters

Feb 1, 2007

I've found several posts but none seem to peform this varying function:

EX12345678....Result in Col B: "EX" and Result in Col C: "12345678"
RTZZ4567.......Result in Col B: "RTZZ" and Result in Col C: "4567"

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).

## Computing With Last 252 Rows Of Varying Length Column

Nov 26, 2009

Using Excel 2003, Column E has a varying and unpredictable number of rows, which only the final 252 rows are of significance. I need to compute the following formulas, here written in English as I can't determine the proper terminology to accomplish this task in Excel:

Final Row with a number in Column E/average (final 252 rows with numbers in column E)+

Final Row with a number in Column E/average (final 126 rows with numbers in column E)+

Final Row with a number in Column E/average (final 63 rows with numbers in column E)

Once again, what makes this not straightforward for me is the column may have wildly varying numbers of rows.

## How To Separate Text From Numbers Into Two Separate Cells

Feb 13, 2014

I'm trying to separate text from numbers into two separate cells...

Essentially, I would like the users to copy and paste data into Column A, as seen below. Then, hopefully by formula separate the text characters into Column B and the numbers into Column C.

Input: Output 1: Output 2:

Col A Col B Col C
Wells 123 Wells 123
Wells 1234 Wells 1234
Wells Fargo 123 Wells Fargo 123
Wells Fargo 1234 Wells Fargo 1234
Wells Fargo Inc 123 Wells Fargo Inc 123
Wells Fargo Inc 1234 Wells Fargo Inc 1234

Ideally, I would like to do this with a formula...

## Creating Macro To Calculate Columns With Varying Length

May 2, 2012

I have a column of data where the seperate entities are divided by blank rows. for example: i need to calculate sum(G3:G15) then skip the blank row (G16) and calculate the next group, say sum(G17:G50) and export that import to a new worksheet.

The issue is that the column lengths vary from day to day so the blank rows will not be in the same position.

## Bring Data From Sheets Of Varying Length To One Main Sheet

Apr 17, 2012

I have a workbook with several sheets of varying length (amount of columns). The length of each sheet changes every week. I want particular data from the sheets to come together on one sheet in as organized a fashion as is possible. I'm currently losing my mind copying and pasting every week when I need to update the thing.

## Depending On Value Of One Cell - Pull A Set Of Data From Another Page Varying Length / Width

Aug 12, 2014

I have drop drown menus that allow you to select 1 of 3 choices and based on those a second set which lists the options for the first three (subset). Now depending on the second value I need to pull a set of x y coordinates that can be of varying length. '

Example

Drop down menu 1 1560, 1669, 1554. Drop down menu 2 1560-1,2,3,4 1669-a,b,c,d. This has been done now lets say I select 1560-1. I need the following to be pulled from a list, the data is a block.

1.00 1.543
1.23 -1.25
0.54 -2.75

This can be of any length.

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

Jan 27, 2012

I have a text string in cell A1 as below:

repairs booked in Dec,11 (INR 37k)
training fees Dec,11 (INR 42k)test Fee Reimb for 03 emp Dec,11 (INR 56k)
skill fees booked in Jan,12 INR 52k
Reimb for 01 employee in Jan,12 INR 8k fee accounted- xyz INR 250k, Quick solutions INR 52K, ABCD India INR 272K, Layer Technologies INR30K and complex mgt INR 21K

Note: (INR 37K) means negative number i.e. -37

Now my task is to manually total the above amounts in calculator, i.e.

-37-42-56+52+8+250+52+272+30+21 = =550

like this there are 100s of cells, could derive a formula for this task.

## Adding Numbers That Have Text In Same Field?

Sep 20, 2012

I am working on making a time sheet log that will have employee name, 7 rows for days of the week and a row for total hours worked. each cell will either be blank in that row because employee has not worked that day or it will have numerical hours and the place the employee worked. We have many different job sites so text is subject to change. For example Monday employee 1 worked 8 hours at MRCR, so cell would state 8 MRCR Tuesday did not work so left blank. Wednesday worked 8 hours at CCR so will be 8 CCR. Thursday worked 8 hours at CU. so 8 CU in cell. Friday Saturday and Sunday left blank. How do i add create a formula that would be standard formula for each week for employee that would add numbers and omit text as well as ignore blank cells from week to week as the employee schedule changes.

## How To Come Out With Random Number From A Field That Have Text And Numbers

Nov 7, 2013

I need excluding text from a cell and come out with a random number up to 3 numbers. Please see the attached image;

If you notice in column D there is text and a number that starts with a decimal, for example on the first row is .437 the next row is .215 next row is .63 etc... Is there a way to come out with a random number mixing it up to 3 digits and output those number on column "E"? Im only interested in filtering and coming out with the random number i mentioned .437 .215 .63 etc... not the +/-.010in.

There is no right or wrong number, i just need to come out with random number using up to 3 numbers up.

Maybe for .437 three numbers up could be .440 for the next row .215 maybe a number up .216..etc..

Hope there is a way to do this, my excel file is too long to type a number manually.

## Separate Text And Numbers

Aug 22, 2007

creating a formula to separate the text from the numbers into 2 separate columns.

Examples are:
A1= Angel Romero 260.00
A2= Wieben Chiropractic Clinic 74.00
A3= R Ricardo Ramirez Dds 340.00

The 'Text to Column' function does not work because there is no fixed width and no deliminater. To add in a deliminater, like a "", is an option but there are thousands of cells to do this to.

As you can see, using LEFT, RIGHT and MID functions become tricky since the deliminater would be a "space" but there are often several "spaces" in the string of characters.

Is there a way to SEARCH or FIND the first number and let that be the deliminater?

I know I can use text to columns to do this. I have horse results listed in column A as follows 3.5L (i.e. 3.5 lengths), 4L and so on. Every number ends with an L. I want a formula in column O that just gives me the number as below:

3.5L 3.5 (in column O)
4.5L 4.5

and so on.
