Extracting Numeric Values From String

Jan 5, 2005

My colleague has a problem where he needs to Extract numbers from alphanumberic strings. Here is the formula he is using:

=MID(B7,MATCH(TRUE,ISNUMBER(1*MID(B7,ROW($1:$297),1)),0),COUNT(1*MID(B7,ROW($1:$297),1)))

It works if alphabetic and numbers are clustered together such as scs987
It works if alphabetic and numbers are not clustered together such as scs987dtg

Problem: It does not work when numbers are not clustered together such as scs987dtg1234

Extracting Text Before And After Numeric String

Jul 31, 2009

I'm trying to extract alphanumeric data before and after a numeric string. The numeric string is in the middle of a URL, which is a varying distance from the start and end.

Here's a sample of my data:

URL Page ID Headline Section quiz.impression-http://www.stuff.co.nz/2677193 2677193

http://www.stuff.co.nz/travel/267779...flying-JetStar 2677794 Why-I-hated-flying-JetStar travel http://www.stuff.co.nz/technology/di...eo-a-smash-hit 1675213 Wedding-dance-video-a-smash-hit technology/digital-living http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crim...ce-in-Auckland 2678248 Man-shot-by-police-in-Auckland national/crime http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/s...it-for-Blackie 3674350 NZRU-set-to-bend-it-for-Blackie sport/rugby/super-14

I start with just column A and generate the other three from that.

I'm using some excellent code from a Mr Excel guru (thanks again Peter) to extract the 8-digit numeric string in column B, I just need C (after) and D (before).

That macro is:
Dim Bits
Dim c As Range
Dim i As Long

For Each c In Range("A4", Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))....................

Extracting Values From An Text String (URL)

Oct 14, 2008

I was given a worksheet that contains a column (A) containing about 5,000 URLs (A1 to ~A5000). Each URL string includes three parameters that I want to capture the values.

For example =

[url]

The prameters are known but the values are random up to 256 characters.

I am trying to pull each of the values into a column for sortability and have been mildly successful using MID and FIND but no joy.

Using 'Now()' As A Numeric String

I am trying to create what should be a unique string.

I figured the easiest way to do this would be to use the value given by Now().

However I can't find out how to actually get the result of Now() as a number.

If on a spreadsheet I put in a cell: =Now() and then format that cell as 'General' it gives me the number I am trying to get programatically.

Numeric String Manipulation Query

Dec 23, 2009

I have a sizable spreadsheet, which has one column where the cells are mostly numeric strings of up to 6 numbers - there are variations, which I will mention.

What I need to do, is to treat the numbers as individual figures, and add them, then divide by the number of figures. e.g. cell value '123456' I need to process as (1+2+3+4+5+6)/6.

The variations are that '0' has to be added as 10, and any letters need to be added as 12. '-' and '/' which are the only non-alphanumeric values should be ignored.

Check If First 5 Digits Of String Are Numeric

May 23, 2007

I have some code where I need to check if the first five char are numbers and not letters.

I have in a column for example
12345-someone is here
23456-someone else is here
someone is here too

I need to get all of the ones that have 5 digits and not pull in the other into a new list.

I have tried Left(CPHierAll. Cells(CPHierAllRow, 1),5) which will get me the fist 5 char. and then i need to check to make sure that they are all numbers and not char.

if Left(CPHierAll.Cells(CPHierAllRow, 1),5) = "#####" then
But this does not bring anything in.

I also tried if CPHierAll.Cells(CPHierAllRow, 1),5) = "#####" then

I have 3 column that i am checking for different thinks the first two work just find and seperate out on the check but the last one with the numbers is being a pain.

Extracting Data From A String

Sep 9, 2008

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?
