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

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.

I have the following data in column b and I would like to extract into individual cells.

I would like to extract upto the first number, number text after first number etc

I have several rows and the data lengths are variable

Liverpool FC 2 Sheffield United 1 Manchester United 0 Everton FC 3 Middlesbrough 2 Manchester City 0 Norwich City 2 Chelsea FC 1 Oldham Athletic 1 Crystal Palace 1 Queens Park Rangers 3 Southampton 1

I have a large block of numbers in a spreadsheet and I am wondering how I can look at the whole block and pull out the top five most common numbers. So perhaps the number 4 is repeated the most times, it would be number 1, number 18 might be repeated the second most number of times so it would be in the number 2 slot etc etc.

I have a mass of data which look something like this:

table removed

and I require the ranges of reference numbers to be listed in a column one above the other, which requires inserting new rows. I also need the date & description columns copied down into the newly inserted rows.

So basically for example I would want the top row to now read:

table removed

and then apply the same procedure to the other ranges below this.

Say column A has either numbers or text in each cell, I need a macro to only get each number in each cell that is not a duplicate of a number in any previous cell and list each number found down column B.

I have a column of variances, these contain both negative numbers and positive numbers. I want to gather a sum of all the negative numbers and positive numbers separtely. Basically saying all the positive overeages = this amount And all the negative shortages = this amount. you can see the attached sample.

Is it possible to delete a column of numbers then replace those numbers from adjacent columns and the adjacent columns are then filled with the numbers adjacent to them

I'm working on a spreadsheet with about 400 rows and 10 columns. All the numbers in the columns are formatted as text, which doesn't allow me to use AutoSum. I have selected the cells and formatted them as number with no decimals, but AutoSum still doesn't work because the formatting hasn't changed and they're still formatted as text. I know if I double click each cell, the cell changes the format from text to number, but that will take a lot of time to change 400 cells in each of the 10 columns. What can I do to quickly reformat the cells from text to number?

if cell a1 is "3cash 5stock", i want to extract the number "3" to cell a2 and extract the number "5" to cell a3. the number in cash stock can vary between 1 to 8 and vice versa.

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?

and return "400" but i've encountered a value which is negative (could be -$400, or ($400); and i got an error of #value, could anyone resolve this problem?

I would like to extract the digits below in red. The variables are the digits in all of the sections vary from a minimum of one digit to the maximum of three digits.

I play an online browser game and I've made a spreadsheet for tracking various aspects of the game.

I do okay with the simple formulas and can haphazardly get excel to do what I want it to do. But for a few things I want it to do, I've run into a wall...

Here is the first one:

In the game, I receive reports like this:

One of your fleets (Large Cargo:5 ) returns from [2:100:9] to Planet [2:101:13] . The fleet is delivering 58.679 Metal, 28.750 Crystal and 11.521 Deuterium.

I want to be able to copy that, and past it into A1. Easy enough, but here's the tricky part. I want excel to be able to automatically extract the numbers in front of metal, crystal, and deuterium into their own separate fieilds. So that in this instance B1 would display 58,670, C1 would display 28,750, and D1 would display 11,521.

The amounts can vary anywhere from 1 to 9,999,999 (but there will be no negative numbers), and in some cases the number would end in 0 (I've seen where that makes a difference in some formulas for some reason).

If it makes it easier, the copy/paste could be reduced to:

The fleet is delivering 58.679 Metal, 28.750 Crystal and 11.521 Deuterium.

I have not managed to find exactly what I am looking for so far..

I have cells with a mix of numbers and strings and I would like to extract certain numbers only.

I.E. 123a bcd8 acbd 1234e

I would like to only extract the first instance of numbers - so in example 1 - 123 and in example 2 - 1234. I have found various methods of extracting all numbers such as:

Function ExtractNums(r As String) As String 'Creates and returns a reference for a regular expression object With CreateObject("vbscript.regexp") 'Sets the pattern to be non-digits .Pattern = "D" 'We want to find all matching non-digits .Global = True 'Replace all non-digits with an empty string and return this value for the function ExtractNums = .Replace(r, "") End With End Function

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".

I came up with a way to extract entire row corresponding to the highest number in L column and to post it in the different sheet.

I have 2 issues to solve though.

1. I need to extract only 13 ranges corresponding to the highest number in L column - ( A through M) - not entire row.

2. I need to do the same with the second and the third highest numbers of the same column L.

This is what I have so far:

Sub extract() Dim first As Range Set first = Range("L" & WorksheetFunction.Match(WorksheetFunction.Max(Columns("L")), Columns("L"), 0)) first.EntireRow.Select Selection.Copy Sheets("Result").Select Range("A1").Select Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats, Operation:=xlNone, _ SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False End Sub

My Cells contain loads of text like this: ["16733:0:0"] = “Product ID”:1:1:0", now what i need is just the 16733 to be extracted into its own cell, and the Product ID to be extracted into the cell next to it... all other Text can be deleted. The problem is, pretty much the whole of the text changes in each line :-

In the Numbered part of it (the bit I actually need), it would be either 4 or 5 digits long. Im guessing what I need to do is remove parts bit by bit, but for a novice user - Its proving a bit difficult!

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.

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?
