I need to extract the text from a string that is always less the last three digits. For example if A1 is abcdefg I always have to take off "efg" and extract the rest of it to the left but the length of the string can vary. I can be dirty and record a macro where I find the length, subtract 3 and then using the LEFT worksheet function can get my result, but when I come to try to convert that to VBA. What is the VBA equivalent of LEFT worksheet function and how would I go about using LEN in conjuntion with subtracting 3 from it?
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?
Date: 17/09/2013 KO: 19:45 Ref: B Malone Att: 7,574 extraction of text from the above text string which is say in A1. What l need is for Date to go in A2, KO in B2, Ref in C2, & Att in D2. I'm using Excel 2003
I have a few hundred rows of text in the fomat below: 1.23456 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. The “x’s” represent text which is unique to each row. what the formula I need to extract the number (1.23456) at the start of the string? To complicate things the number may be reported to any number of decimal places, so the formula needs to be able to extract the first block of digits at the start of each row and report it as a number that can be used in calculations.
There is also a single space after the end of the date.
Can someone please show me a formula to extract the date from each cell in the column? This is slightly complicated by the fact that the number of days (“D”) could consist of 1, 2, 3 or 4 characters, and the date could also be of variable length (e.g. 1/1/2008 vs 31/05/2008)
is it possilble to extract integers from a text string within a cell?
Eg. Cell A1 - "ABC 123" I want to extract the "123" from cell A1.
I have many text strings from which I need to extract the integers from. The trouble is that each text string does not follow a consistent order, so I cannot use text functions such as LEFT, MID or RIGHT to extract what i need.
I have a woorkbook where I have a cell that has the following apperance:
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?
Is there a way to extract a phone number out of a string of text. The phone number will always be expressed the same way (eight digits seperated by a space half way through) - 9999 9999. But the text before and after the number is random. Is there a macro to do this on a large scale? The method needs to be applied to hundreds of these strings, each on a new line.
An example of the string of text with the phone number underlined:
I have an excel stock price template, where I need the current price to calculate the mid point if the chart.
This is the text I get from the webquery
Underlying stock: SBIN 2699.00 as on Jul 04, 2014 15:30:36 IST
I need a formula to extract the stock price '2699.00' only from this text.
The problems are sometimes its may change to underlying "stock" to "index", SBIN to RELIANCE or TATASTEEL, and the price some times two digit say 16, some times 6 letters say 150.05, or 8 digits say 15160.00
Formula, the text in B1 and need the price at A100.
I am trying to transfer data from some appointment based software into a spreadsheet . the data comes out as one row For example ,the following is the contents of cell A1: 06/06/2014 09:00 AM - 09:30 AM Patient: John Smith
What I would like to do is extract one column with the date ,one column with the patient forename and one with the patient surname.
I have tried various combinations of =RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-FIND(".",A1)) etc etc but cannot extract the data I need
I have about 2000 rows of text. Each row is a short write up about prospective new business. There is a reference to a projected dollar amount Within 'MOST' of the write-ups. In order to generate a report about the potential dollars being projected, I need to find an easy way to extract the dollar amount from the text.
In most cases, the projected dollar amounts are preceded by "FY2014" then a "$". However, there are a handful of cases where there is no FY2014, but some variation of the year indicator. Most of the dollar amount entries are written is short text - FY2014 - $5k, 2014 $15k. While some others are written out - FY2014 - $ - $20,000. In still other cases, within the writeup reference is made to the amount of product projected to be shipped by using the dollar symbols. For example - Estimated ship totals $$ for FY2014 = $5k. I've tried writing some formulas, but as in the last example - the first dollar signs are recognized rather than the dollar sign immediately before the value.
Sample data - Estimated ship totals $$ for FY2014 = $5K New Customer Prospect 4/9/2012 Customer has still not decided if he
2014 $15K Funco 4/7/14 working on the program for the demo ...
Over 130 samples tested with about 90% accuracy. FY2014 Ship $$ = $20,000 at least. Setter Line has 7 plants ...
I have a string of information in an Excel download from PayPal that I need to upload into QB; but, the information needs to be in a different format. The string from the download is:
Property Address - 1116 South PaxonBorrower " Testa and Son Contractors,LLCLoan # - 1402088Acct Executive " Brandon Tully
But, I need it to be:
1402040;TPAPR;141 North Clinton Street, East Orange, NJ 07017;Leslie P Carter
Is there a formula that I can use to extract specific information from the original string into columns so I can then concatenate the columns into the information I need to upload? Or is there a better way to do this? The Property Address and Borrower Name are not static sizes so I can't use a formula that counts spaces.
I have a meeting name in column A that also includes a meeting #. The meeting number is always enclosed in parentheses and is at the end of the meeting name. There could also be information enclosed in parenthesis in name. I want to extract just the meeting # from the name. Also, the length of the meeting number could change. Here is an example of a 3 meeting names:
Example 1: March Madness (FY2008) Boston (8765) I would want just 8765 to be extracted Example 2: Year End Planning Audit (11567) I would want just 11567 to be extracted
How can I extract just that the meeting number from these meeting names.
I have a rather difficult task to accomplish. What I need is to be able to extract an alphanumeric value from the string. It is a serial number of the equipment and it is always nine alphanumeric characters long. The problem is it can be anywhere in string. Example: “2156545 36 month lease NWL023568 Nancy Clay”. The serial number I need to extract is NWL023568.
I recently had to convert a text file to an Excel file. The text file had to be converted as delimited data since the fixed width column could not convert correctly.
Now that I have the data converted, I have several rows of data strings.
The data I have looks similar to the examples below:
41 AAITQ08082901PER0041 ABC v1.0 NES ABC P111 - Blue 7706 6547 Yes No 140 5 AAITQ08082901PER0005 ABC v1.0 NEG ABC Z113 - Silver R 9222 2743 Yes No 156123 My question is, how do I extract the numbers that follow the word "No" at the end of each string?
Assuming the data starts in column A, is there a formula that I could type into column B that would allow me to return the value of those specific numbers?
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
