## Separate Words From The Sentence

Nov 16, 2009

i really don't know what would be the title, so just hoping that's good for you guys. by the way i need some tricky formula. i have a sentence like this:

Black shoes \$250.00, Plasma TV \$1,000.00, date to be paid 11/29/09, remaining amount \$10,000.00, Computer package \$16,000.00.

i want this to be (in different cell):

Black shoes \$250.00
Plasma TV \$1,000.00
date to be paid 11/29/09
remaining amount and so on...

I did text to columns, but the problem is the amount that has "," really bothers me. can someone give me some tips to do this?

## Separate Whole Words Into Two Rows

Dec 29, 2005

I want to separate the following words into two rows. As the length of each word is different, so i could not use 'text to coumns' function.
for example:
Word1 : the board of directors of abc company limited (len = 45) in cell u13
Word2 : the board of directors of abcdefgh company limited (len =50) in cell u14

I use the formula to separate word 1 into two rows: return #VALUE
1st row : =IF(LEN(U13)<40,U13,LEFT(U13,FIND(" ",U13,40))) in cell u15
2nd row : =IF(LEN(U15)<40," ",TRIM(MID(U13,LEN(U15),99))) in cell u16

But i use same formula to separate word2 into two rows : successful
1st row : =IF(LEN(U14)<40,U15,LEFT(U14,FIND(" ",U14,40))) in cell u17
2nd row : ==IF(LEN(U14)<40," ",TRIM(MID(U14,LEN(U17),99))) in cell u18

Answer : 1st row : the board of directors of abcdefgh company
2nd row : limited

## Extracting Data From Separate Workbook?

May 25, 2014

is it possible to place sheet names beside the data? What I mean is that, I'm currently working on a report which extracts data from the current workbook (many sheets) and paste it into a new workbook. As there would be duplicates due to many different sheets. I would like to have the duplicates removed but have the sheets name which they are found in the columns beside.

## 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...

## Extracting Information From A Workbook And Saving Into A Separate Workbook

Feb 21, 2014

i have a workbook blank template for my colleagues to fill in, they fill in this blank template and save it under the serial number of the item they are creating. However a lot of errors exist when they input the serial number inside the workbook where the serial number is a duplicate of a former serial number.

Anyhow i was wondering is there any way when they input the serial number into the worksheet that i could get it to save in a separate workbook and then have conditional formatting to check those serial numbers in the workbook to see if they match?

## Linking Cells Globally To Allow Users Ability To Change Cells On Separate Sheet / Cells?

Feb 18, 2014

I have a workbook that uses the values that a user had entered into 3 cells to calculate multiple other charts/diagrams on multiple sheets within the workbook. Each sheet would show what the user had entered in the 3 cells to allow them to see what is being used to calculate each table. Is it possible to link these cells so that the user can change the 3 values without having to go back to where he originally entered the 3 values?

For example, a user has entered in 3 values in Sheet 1. A formula in Sheet 2 displays what is entered by the user and uses these calls in Sheet 2 for calculations. When the user wants to change the three values, he would have to navigate to Sheet 1 and enter in the new values to have the workbook recalculate all the tables. Is there a way to link the three cells from Sheet 1 and Sheet 2 so when the user is on Sheet 2, he has the opportunity to change the values on the current Sheet without having to navigate to Sheet 1 to do so?

## Extracting Data From Cells In A Row Based On Other Cells

Apr 30, 2007

Please check the attached workbook. Sheet "Data" has some bank account data, and whether the dues are paid or pending.

What I need is, I need to extract only the data of Column A and B into a new worksheet, only if G is in the Pending status.

I don't want to use a macro, nor a pivot, nor autofilter. I need to do it through formulas. I have seen this been done before, but can't figure it out. The max number of pending accounts wont be more than 10, so need to just pull the formula down 10 rows. I have already entered the data in the second sheet that would be the result.

This second sheet is sort of a supervisor sheet, so that whenever they want they can open it to see the number of Pending accounts.

## Sum Up Cells Containing Certain Words

Jul 27, 2009

## Seperating Words To Different Cells

Jun 23, 2009

I have hundreds of file names, and to cut a long explanation short, they are exported as a CSV file to excel. In order indentify the owner of the file I need to rename the file with a commar where you see the dash or the underscore in order to have the name appear in the next cell, as can be seen with Syma and Kevin below, so I can then sort the columns etc etc.

I know there is a formula that I can use to achieve this, ie have syma.pdf and kevinc.pdf in the next cell.

I think it works on identifying how many characters along the name and then send i to the next cell.

as you can see below, there is no set amount of characters to put into a formula.

Could I say, for example, if after dash /underscore put next word in next cell?

t5 mon a2 w6-syma-0003.pdft5 mon cst w2_dellwynneh.pdft5 mon a23 w3_MASUMS.pdft5 mon cmn201a w1- syma.pdft5 thurs wiabe w2_kevinc.pdft5 thurs wiabe2 w2_kevinc.pdf

## Clearing Cells Containing Specified Words

Apr 29, 2008

I am trying to clear the contents of cells in a very large spread sheet containing certain words. I am running the following macro and it will only do the first part, so it will clear cells containing "deceased" but stops at "esa". There may be any number of other words or text in the cell and I want it to delete cells with "esa" by itself so for ex. not delete cell containing "vanesa". I am very amateur so I am sure this is something simple but I cannot find the answer or figure it out for myself.

Sub DeleteAll()
Dim lCount As Long
Dim rFoundCell As Range
Dim rLookRange As Range
Set rFoundCell = Range("A1")
Set rLookRange = ActiveSheet.UsedRange
For lCount = 1 To WorksheetFunction. CountIf(rLookRange, "*deceased")
Set rFoundCell = rLookRange.Find(What:="deceased", After:=rFoundCell, _
LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, _
SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False)
rFoundCell.ClearContents.......................

## Macro To Only Keep 100 Words In Range Of Single Words Per Column?

Jun 3, 2014

I'm looking for a macro to remove all words (in a single word per cell format) in a range (approx 100 columns & 7000 rows), except for a list of 100 words.

I'd prefer to email the file if that's okay.

## Auto-calculate 2 Column That Contains Numbers And Words Words

Jul 16, 2009

I've been using conventional method to do this and it's time consuming. I would like to total up 2 column. A multiply B to be exact. Below are some examples:

Table 1 - Before totaling up:

Quantity
Product
5
2 x Button A White
3
4 x Button B Pink
4
5 x Ribbon A Black
2
6
2 x Cloth A Blue

Table 2 - After totaling up:

Quantity
Product
10
Button A White
12
Button B Pink
20
Ribbon A Black
6
12
Cloth A Blue

I need to have the sum of the "Quantity" multiply "Product". Or in short A x B.
And the end result need to have the number and "x" sign removed while keeping on the the products names. (2 x ) Take note it's "number" space "symbol" space.

## Extracting Information From Cells?

Apr 23, 2014

I'm trying to extract information from a cell that I cut and paste from another source:

09/02/2014-12/11/2014 Lecture Tuesday, Thursday 08:00AM - 09:15AM, Nichols Engineering Hall, Room 441

Each cell is different in that it may be a different day or time:

09/02/2014-12/11/2014 Lecture Tuesday, Thursday 08:00AM - 09:15AM, Nichols Engineering Hall, Room 434

I want to make a formula that will extract the pertinent information (day of the week and time), and store it to another 2 cells, making a list as it "extracts":

Day
Time

Tuesday
8:00 - 9:15

Thursday
8:00 - 9:15

## Extracting #s From Cells With Text

Nov 5, 2009

I need a formula that will extract #s, some of which appear as a range, from many cells. The #s/range of #s will not be in the same text location for every cell & “text to columns” converts some of the ranges to date format which is bad. Below is an example of some of the data that may appear. The only constant is that the first name is only the initial w/a period, but there may be a Jr. or Sr. thrown in occasionally.

T. Jones 1
M. Chavez 2-25
B. Bailey Jr. 26-125

## Autosplit Two Words From One Cell Into Two Cells

Oct 31, 2008

I have database of customers and one collum is labeled "Name and Family name". I want excel to split this records in two collums, ergo one labeled Name, the other one Family name.

## Searching Text In Cells For Words

Mar 17, 2008

I have a column that is filled with text of varying lengths and I'd like to search through each cell in that column looking for a specific word or words. Unfortunately the length of the text varys greatly between each cell and there is very little uniformity so I need to be able to search through the entire entry in each cell and then highlight that row if a specific word or words are found.

I'd also like to be able to add a number "1" in another column on the same row if the search finds a word or words. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If the cell only contains the exact word or string I'm looking for then it's easy but I can't figure out how to search through text in a cell that contains more than I'm looking for.

example: Lets say I'm loooking for "caught fire"
column Q contains:
1 "The computer caught fire after several hours"
2 "A house on the hill caught fire"

If "caught fire" exists in the cell being checked, then highlight the row and put a 1 in a specific column, lets say J.

## Find Corresponding Cells - Column Contains Certain Words

May 30, 2012

Very simple program I think, can either be solved by build-in functions or macro. So situation is I have a table, where the D column, contains certain words.

Now I have table where the M1:M10 column contains the same words and the corresponding column (N) contains the value.

So for example , cell D5= "A" and I find that cell M6 is also "A" so I then go at cell N6 which has the value "3.3". So now I want I5 to have the value 3.3 in it.

In Summary, I want the value of the n column copied into column I. Now I have plenty of rows in the D column so I prefer a fast way.
