Extracting Information Within A Merged/combined Cell
Nov 4, 2009
I am doing an export of info from one system and running an excel spreadsheet to manipulate the data. The problem is..That the exported data sometimes will export info into combined cells. Look at attachment
This is what I need...
I need the ability to search all the info on the POC tab and pull it into the info tab, by searching on a system and returning the POC info..
I have tried the vslookup formula and it will return the first row not the second row which is where the info is that I need (shown Highlighted)
I receive a workbook on a monthly basis and it arrives in csv format. I need to format it and split it into several pages prior to sending to managers. I'm comfortable with the vba for formatting and splitting it into several pages but I have a problem with some cells that always have data in them in the same (incorrect) fashion.
how to go about fixing these cells and then I can get on with writing that into the macro.
Currently looks like:
A || B || C No requested || No Supplied || Percentage 4 || 4100% 12 || 875% 6 || 350%
Should look like:
A || B || C No requested || No Supplied || Percentage 4 || 4 || 100% 12 || 8 || 75% 6 || 3 || 50%
I was thinking of some kind of Left() formula to extract the leftmost character and place it into it's new cell BUT realise that sometimes I might need to extract 2 (or perhaps even more) characters.
I'm trying to extract information from one specific cell, and place it into another. This other thread kind of does what I'm looking for. I wish to extract from the following; "20/04/2009 5:42:51 AM". Placing the date in one cell, and the time in another. All spacing within the quotation marks is respective of the cell. Obviously dates and times would vary.
I use a spreadsheet (FY-2012) to track approx 700 work requests. I enter the work request number (name of the spreadsheet) in column A, which is hyperlinked to the actual work request spreadsheet. I would like to automatically fill in this cell with the information entered in cell J42 of the work request entered in column A. Cell A5 of the tracker "FY-2012" indicates Work Request "BB-12003". Cell D5 of the tracker "FY-2012" indicates the completion date. I would like to extract the completion date entered in cell "J42" of Work Request "BB-12003" and have it automatically fill in Cell D5 of the tracker "FY-2012".
I'm trying to create a database where when 3 dependent drop down list selections are combined, information is displayed.
I've tried VLOOKUP and INDEX/MATCH but to no avail.
Attached is the spreadsheet and what I am trying to accomplish. On the first sheet ("budget form") is a table named "Event Costs - room hire". I have created three drop down lists that interact based on what you select. Some rooms offer different services and so are dependent on the selection.
However, I want the final box to display the price depending on what is selected in the previous 3 lists. The amounts and a table I have created is in the "Product Database" sheet and the table is labelled, "Room Hire Control C".
I am trying to extract only partial information from a cell that contains mutliple entries without seperator. Ie I want to get 3rd reference from cell containing abcde(I want to extract onto another sheet the "c" and only the "c")
I'm looking to find a way to extract an email address an a reference number from an email receipt that i have extracted to excel. The problem is when I paste the information its pastes onto multiple rows and not a single row.
I'm using this formula to extract the email address and can do something else to get the ref number out however the results are on multiple lines which is not good to me.
I have attached a document to show you how the data extractS on (EXAMPLE TAB) The information I want to extract is the stuff in Red. I then want the results to look like the Results Tab in the example.
I have some data that I have created a report from. However it doesn't show a "true" picture for the stat we want. I have a pivot table set up with data showing the hours worked for an individual. What I am wanting to do would be to cross reference the data but not sure how to compare data. I have provided some make shift data to see if it is even feasible. The end goal is to get a true picture of P.P.H The data we are able to get is in a horrible format. I would eventually like to automate this in VBA but will work on the later. I thought about doing a vlookup but the is no real matching data for all employees. Some of the names are wrong in one system and there is no matching emp ID.
I am trying to write a formula which will extract information from a given set of cells. The information format is
What I need to do is pull out the information which precedes the second. so in the above the answer would be XXXX-YYYY. I was thinking of using a mid or left, right formula till I discovered that the # of characters for X, Y and Z can be any length ie they could be
X-YYYY-ZZZZ XXXX-Y- XX-YYYY-ZZZZZ
So the formula needs to find the second dash (-) and extract information prior to it.
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.
My problem is I cannot copy from a Form Control drop down box, and I need to do this for ~10 drop down boxes in about 200 xls files. The files follow a template so the drop down button Inputs are uniform. Here is some more detail:
I’m building an Access Database so that our data (currently in many, many Excel Spreadsheets) can be efficiently queried. The old system was that when asset data was collected, the data would be entered into an Excel spreadsheet, using a Template. So for example:
Name Main Street Pipe High Street Pipe
Ref No. 12345 12346
Installation date 22/08/13 19/07/12
X Coordinate 55667 99212
Y Coordinate 77889 12364
We have hundreds of these files, but I managed to get all the files in one folder and Paste and Transpose the data from the relevant Cell Ranges in each file (using a VB sub) into ONE summary sheet. Success; or so I thought.
Unfortunately for one generation of the template (people changed them slightly every year), the template had people enter information into Drop Down Menus. Not a problem when they’re associated with a cell, but these were free floating Form Controls.. so you can’t actually click and copy from them, or call them in VB as you would a specific cell.. afaik.
So my issue is how can I extract the data from those Form Buttons? I’ll try and provide as much info as I can:
Firstly I tried to find some sort of identifier for each Form Button. The dropdowns are called Combo Boxes, (Developer tab > Insert > Combo Box (Form Control) ), and when you select them (by right clicking) and hit the View Code button in Developer Tab > Controls the following shows up in VB.
I’m guessing that the number is related to the button so that’s one useful thing, an identifier of sorts. There’s no actual code there though really from what I can see.. My problem is I have no idea how to extract from DropDown44!
The range of values in the drop down comes from a separate sheet where there’s just a list of the values. There aren’t any cells linked to the drop downs though. If I enter a cell in (Right Click) Format Control > Cell link: then it prints the number (e.g. 4) of the value in the range. So if the drop down options are “Monday”, “Tuesday”, “Wednesday”, “Thursday” and “Thursday” is selected, the linked cell says: “4”.
They didn’t link a cell, then I could call that cell in a VB sub and the job would be done. Unfortunately they didn’t, so I tried Recording a Macro and selecting the drop down form control.. That didn’t really work, except if I right clicked it, I got some more info from the macro VB:
ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("Drop Down 19")).Select
So is my drop down an Array? My understanding of an Array is that it’s a list of arguments.. all I get there is the name of the button. I am not experienced in VB so this is as far as I’ve got. Perhaps I can get a sub to select the button using the above line, but I need the info from it, i.e. which value is currently selected in the Drop Down.
(Using Excel 2010 but the .xls files are from ~2005)
I have about 5 nested if statements in 5 different cells. The problem is I need to combine all 5 nested if statements into 1 cell. Can someone show me how this is done. I don't want to try vlookup since the ifs are already written. I named all of the formulas as one, two, three, four, five to help me keep track of them. Need to figure out what I have to do to combine all of the if statements into 1 cell.
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?
I have a spreadsheet that i want to create a part number that contains 4 parts. Ex 1rl9. The cell i want this to be in is blank. What formula do i use to make the second character in the blank cell = r?
I Want users to be able to copy a reference number from a an external program into excel, this works well for single cells but the cell I want them to be able to paste the information into is a merged cell and keep getting the "Data on the clipboard is not the same size and shape blah blah error". What I can do to get this information to paste? Is there some VBA that can kinda trick the cell to believe its single or when pasting it unmerges and then remerges again?
Excel 2010. I need to place picture into one cell or one big merged cell, as a background fill. picture must resize to size of cell. must be fixed in, not in front. i still need write into that cell, so it needs to be really background.
The issue that I am having is with merged cell data. What I am trying to do is check the value of the merged cell against a selection from an array and place the value into a cell.
What apparently occurs is that if the row that I am on is an even number (being as my rows start on an odd number); the reference returns empty. I have tested to confirm that this only affects even numbered rows. My spread sheet has a 2 row merged cell in column 2, and the cell I am referencing from is on the second row of that merged cell. Here is some
