Aug 14, 2014

Wondering if it is possible to generate a random 4 digit number based off an alphanumeric string?

Example;

In B1 I would like to have a 4-6 digit number that is generated based on the alphanumeric data in Cell A1 (and so on down the list). If that is possible, I would also need to be able to convert back the 4-6 digit number back to its original alphanumeric value

If B1 returns 643562 it would need to be able to be converted back to 123XVF1234

## Non-zero Numbers From An Alphanumeric String

Jan 9, 2007

I am looking for formulae to identify the first 20 non-zero numbers from a string of alphanumerical and non alphanumeric characters

EG If column A any data such as:
123
0123
01(2)3
0.123
123abc
0123abc
01(2)3abc
0.123abc
a1b2c3
1a2b3c

Then the corresponding row for column B would return 123

Using help from my maths Prof and some IT bods, i have so-far come up with the array-formula:

=1*MID(A7,MATCH(FALSE,ISERROR(1/MID(A7,ROW(1:100),1)),0),20)

assuming that the total string is not more than 100 characters.

## Extract Number From Alphanumeric String ..

Dec 16, 2008

I would like to parse a part number.

ab24s-12-g4a

if there is a "-#-" in the string, that is the value I want. If the "-#-" is not present, I would like to take the first number. Currently, as written in your first example, I am getting the first number - excellent and thank you!

In the sku, the first digit reprepresents capacity. If a second number is present after the capacity portion of the sku (i.e. "-#-"), that means that they want to order it filled with less than capacity. For instance, a carton of eggs and they want 6 eggs instead of the max capacity of 12. (i.e. egg12-6-z2z). Numbers after the second octet (i.e. z2z) do not matter.

It would be a number only in the second octet. If there are characters with it, the equation should disregard it.

Here are the scenarios, and what the formula should accomplish

1) egg12 --> currently returns 12
2) egg12-6 --> would return 6
3) egg12-6-g2c --> would return 6
4) egg12-g2c --> would return 12

## Substitution Of Specific Characters In Alphanumeric String

Jun 13, 2013

I have a large column of text with multiple entries similar to this: PC3L-10600R-9-11-A0. I need to replace the "11" with a 13. However I have other instances where the 11 appears (PC3-12800E-11-11-D0 or PC3L-12800R-11-11-A0).

I have found that I can use SUBSTITUTION

{=SUBSTITUTE(A50,H50,I50,1) and =SUBSTITUTE(A61,H61,I61,2)}

to handle the specific instances but I'd like to have a way to combine this type of function logically in one command.

I tried to find out how to post my table but the link in that thread lead me to a notice saying I wasn't allowed access to the page.)

Cells A2:G2 contain various alphanumeric strings.

If more than one cell contains "SD#", I want to add the numbers together. The total goes in cell C6 and it needs to change if the contents of A2:G2 change. E.g. if A2 shows SD4.75 and B2 shows SD8, the total in C6 would be 12.75

So I'm looking for a formula for C6....
