# Extracting Numbers From Text Using Macro Or Excel Functions

Dec 10, 2012

I am trying to extract values from a text. I used macro to solve the problem. I was able to extract the numbers however i am trying not to extract all of the numbers in text. For example as you can see below, i am trying to get only 22.99 The only unique thing here can be \$ sign i believe. I need to put a criteria that selects the number right after \$ sign and extracts 5-6 decimals after that.

**work lamp/desk light led;orion8879 final price: \$22.99 (store)**
this is the text in a cell and i only need 22.99 not 8879)

## Extracting Numbers From Text And Turning The Numbers Into Rows Of Data

Feb 23, 2010

The format of the text in which I need to extract numbers is as follows:

23411268 - 23411270

Need to extract the following:

23411268
23411269
23411270

These numbers have to be listed in three seperate rows.

## Extracting Phone Numbers From Text String Variation In Preceding Text

Mar 29, 2013

I'm pulling phone numbers out of text strings. There is text string ("Office:") indicating that the number following is an office number (the number that I need). MID and FIND take care of this. There are sometimes two instances of office numbers in single text string, so adding a second column using the third argument of FIND lets me start another search past the first instance of an office number. We have a bunch of office numbers with the qualifier "(Text)" after the original "Office" but before the phone number. How do I catch these ones?

## Extracting Numbers From Text

Jun 13, 2009

I need to separate text information from a cell into 3 columns (W,9-8). The first letter I know how to extract. The problem is to extract the number in the middle (1 or 2 digit) between "," and "-" and also the last number. For the last number I could use right() function but the problem is that number could be 1 or 2 digits so I can not specify in advance so formula would have to extract the last number till "-". Anyone knows how to do this?

## Extracting Numbers And Text

Mar 6, 2009

I need help extracting numbers from text. In column A, I have a list containing entries like this:

0005 Nurseries — propagation and cultivation of nursery stock
0016 Orchards — citrus and deciduous fruits
0034(1) Poultry Raising
0034(2) Sheep Raising and Hog Farms
0035 Florists — cultivating or gardening

The list goes on for about 800 rows.

In column J, I have this forumula:

{=LEFT(A1,MATCH(2,1/ISNUMBER(MID(A1,ROW(A2:A100)-ROW(A1),1)*1)))}
It works great, except the result includes the left parenthesis: for example, J3 = "0034(1". Is there a way to obtain just the numeric value ("00341")?

Also, is there another formula I can use in column K that will do the opposite and extract only the text? For example: K1 = "Nurseries — propagation and cultivation of nursery stock" and K3 = "Poultry Raising".

## Extracting Numbers From Text And Then Adding Together

Oct 28, 2006

I am using Excel to collate the averages for my cricket team. All the players are listed in column A, followed by their scores for each individual game throughout the year and ending with a total runs column for the season.

My problem arises when I have to give an indication that a player scored runs but was "not out", which impacts on the overall averages because a player who is not out is credited with the runs scored but not charged with an innings. So a player who made 15 not out is credited with "15no" in my workbook.

As a simple example: Player's name (Barry Smith) appears in A1, then his five scores: 23, 15no, 35, 125no, 2 in cells A2:A6. SUM(\$A2:\$A6) entered in A7 ignores the cells that also include text (the "nos") and gives me a total of 60. Is there a formula I can enter in A7 to disregard the "nos" and just read the digits in those cells to come up with the grand total of 200? The run totals can be 1, 2 or 3 digits and I can split the "no" from the number (i.e. "15 no" instead of "15no") if this makes things easier.

## Extracting Both Numbers And Text From A String

Jun 21, 2007

I have a woorkbook where I have a cell that has the following apperance:

12345678-ABCDEFG

The numbers can vary in length and as well as the text. What I am trying to do is to split this cell into to columns. Column 1 shows the account number, Column 2 should show the Text and the "-" sign should not be in any of the columns ie it should look something like this

Column1 Column2
12345678 ABCDEFG

I have found a useful function for the first part thanx to Mikerickson
URL:Extract Numerical Data

Function midNumber(inputStr As String) As Double
Dim i As Long
For i = 1 To Len(inputStr)
midNumber = CDbl(Val(Mid(inputStr, i)))
If midNumber <> 0 Then Exit Function
Next i
End Function

But how do i seperate the text and how do Crete a macro that would loop through some 2000 rows and create a column A and B from Column A?

## Extracting Specific Number From Text Containing Other Numbers

Apr 27, 2007

I have a text field which contains multiple numbers ( reference #s and phone #s). I need to extract the reference # which will be either a 7 or 8 digit number. That number will not fall in any particular place in the string.

## Extracting Multiple Numbers From Excel Cell Having Long Description?

Jun 12, 2014

I need to extract numbers from excel cells. For eg-

BAR TBG 04.00X02.25X26.50 1340 HRN SMLS SPEC. ES4.38694

^^^ This is one of the cells. I need to pull out 04.00, 2.25, 26.50, 1340 into different cells from one given cell.

I have tried using =MID() function, but I need to make changes into that formula everytime the position of first numeric letter changes while I go along a column. And I need to make changes into it as I go along the row.

It is taking me a lot of time in extracting numbers from one cell into different cells and I am afraid that I will spend the rest of my life getting this stuff done.

## Excel 2010 :: Extracting And Manipulating Text From Cells

Sep 16, 2013

This could be a bit complicated, but hopefully also useful for others. We have the following sample of 10 cells from a large file with similar data:

N: 1; B: 162; M: 278, 278; T: 24; A: 103, 105; I: 393; á¸¤: 7240, 7390, 7465, 7546, 7617, 7756, 27399, 8380, 8741, 8894, 8985, 9559, 9671, 9741, 10119, 10211; W: 40; D: 766.
N: 2; B: 246, 889, 1136; M: 255, 255; A: 55; I: 286; á¸¤: 22731, 22802, 22857, 22906, 22948; D: 685.

[Code]...

We want to extract the same letters with its numbers and put the same letters with numbers in one column and do this for all letters, but - this is important - while keeping them in their original row. The purpose of this is addition of data and easy rearrangement of the letter plus numbers order, e.g., to: B M N A T I W D á¸¤. As you can see not all the rows have all letters, nor are the seizes the same. There are thousands of such cells. Some parts are partly in bold, we want to maintain that layout after sorting. Such a thing should be easy for computers, but how could this extraction and manipulation be done (I have Excel 2010)?

P.S. There are two spaces after every ; that were eaten up here.

## Excel 2011 :: Extracting Data That Is Text Based (Mac)

Jul 26, 2014

I have a workbook with 2 sheets.

Sheet 1 will act as a summary for sheet 2, showing only the last 5 entries from sheet 2.

Sheet 2 is based on football results of a season which will have a total of 34 league games plus cup games.

Sheet 2 has 4 columns:

Game Number Home Team Result Away Team
1 United 2-0 City
2 Sportive 4-2 Uniao
3 Real 1-0 Ateltico
4 Villa 1-3 City
5 United 2-1 Real
6 Atletico 0-0 Villa

So sheet 1 will show the last 5 results as the season progress's and new data is added.

I have been able to extract column 'GAME NUMBER' using the following formula:

=INDEX('Back end 1'!A:A,MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307,'Back end 1'!A:A)-ROWS('Back end 1'!A2:A\$6)+1)

I am struggling to find a way to pull the last 5 data that is text based.

I am using Excel Mac 2011.

## Excel 2007 :: Extracting And Adding Values From Within Text Strings?

Jun 2, 2013

I am trying to extract values from a text string and add them up in Excel 2007. So far i have been successful in extracting the value out of the text string like this - =MID(I6,AD6,3) where AD6 holds the position number in the text string to start from. So it's working OK for one row but i need to do the same thing on multiple rows where the text string can be in different columns and I'd like it to automatically pick up the non-blank cell.

each row only has one column with text in it and the value i need to extract is always after "\$". this is a working spreadsheet so the text string could move from column to column over time and I'd like my formula to be able to detect which column to read from. I then need to add up all the values from each row.

## Excel 2010 :: Formatting Numbers Written In Text To Numeric And Pulling Only Numbers Out

Feb 20, 2013

I am extracting data from a website to excel 2010. my problem is the data contains both text, numbers, and sometimes a combination of both.

e.g. hi im ron for more information you can reach me at 6 five 6 four 5 seven 7 three 2 two..

I need it to look like this 6564577322 or 7 * 0 * 2 * 4 * 5 * 6 * 8 * 6 * 2 * 1...i need to look look the same

How do i first format the numbers written in text into numbers and then show only the numbers in a cell minus the text?

## Import Large Text File Of Numbers Without Excel Splitting Numbers?

Jul 19, 2014

I have a text file with rows and columns of numbers ranging from 1-4 digits that I'd like to import/copy into Excel with each number being in its own cell. But whenever I copy/try to import, Excel splits all of the 3-4 digit numbers up into single digit numbers. The text file has 10,000+ columns (each number occupies two columns so I have half of that amount in numbers) and 300+ lines.

Is the file simply too large for Excel to handle or is there a way I can do this?

## Extracting Numbers From Alphanumeric Strings (unite The X Amount Of Numbers)

Aug 16, 2008

Is there a way either by VBA or manually (preferably both, if possible) to actually unite the X amount of numbers that are in a cell given the contents is alphanumeric? I'll give you the following examples to see if you can understand what I' referring to?

DATA output should be
asd67,h876 --------> 67876
2,3,ujdj5&34 -------> 23534
909k86m34 --------> 9098634

## Extracting Numbers From Alphanumeric Strings (strip Numbers?)

Aug 15, 2008

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.

## How To Fix Numbers When Imported Into Excel As Text

Apr 10, 2009

I immediately began having problems with formulas and pivot tables when I began importing data from an offsite postgreSQL database. For example, "countif" and "sumproduct" formulas invariably return values of 0. I can create pivot tables from the imported data, but nothing with a numerical value will group.

After fighting with this for literally hours, I finally noticed that all numbers in the columns were on the left side of the column meaning that the numerical data is being imported into Excel as text, even though the columns in the spreadsheet into which the data is imported are in number format.

Any way either to import numbers as numbers from the postgreSQL database, or to convert text to numbers after the data is imported.
