Extracting Part Of Text From One Cell To Another

Aug 20, 2006

I have a column of cells with similar to the following text.

First Marine Avenue 18 1303 11 1

There will always be a final 4 groups of text numbers, each with a space
between, but each having different number of numbers (this particular
sequence has 2,4,2,1 - but others may be different, but always 4 groups)

The true text ( a series of Road names are potentiaaly all different, having
a sequence of words that may be up to 5 words long before the numbers start)

I need to extract the 4 groups of numbers into seperate cells, leaving the
Road name text in a singe cell. I would then have a table of 5 columns, the
first the Road text, and the next 4 columns being the group of numbers, which
I would then format as numbers.

Extracting Part Of A Cell

Oct 13, 2008

If I have some data in a cell (let's say D1) such as "m-3,s-2,xl-4", what formula can I use in say cell D2 so that if I find the characters "s-" in Cell D1, then it will return the value "2".

Similarly, in say in Cell D3, I would then want to use the same formula but modify it so that if the characters "xl-" are contained within Cell D1, the formula will return "4"

Extracting Part Of Cell Data

Sep 8, 2008

I need to extract part of the data from a number of cells. I was thinking a vlookup would be the right way to go about this but i don't know how i can make it look for only part of the data in a cell.

example data Required Extraction Data
PXC-WIS-HAR075/001 = I need the data HAR075/001
GXR-Cru-WOO046/001 = I need the data WOO046/001
LST-Wis-KAV001/001 = I need the data KAV001/001
GXR-CAP-EDL001/001 = I need the data EDL001/001
RXW-ACT-WAL081/001 = I need the data WAL081/001
SXS/mf/SMI085/001 = I need the data SMI085/001
SYM-CEN-HAP001/001 = I need the data HAP001/001
SYM-Act-MAY025/001 = I need the data MAY025/001

I should have also wrote that I do have a list of the file numbers for the vlookup to.

Delete Row If Cell Contains Certain Text As Part Of Text String?

May 15, 2014

I have a column of data with letters in each cell, no numerical, only alpha. Now, some of those cells contain the letters "adj sub" as part of the text string in each cell. "Adj sub" is always at the beginning of the text string. As an example, a cell will look like this - "adj sub mhm". I want to delete rows whose cell description does not contain "adj sub" as part of the text in the cell.

I have been working on this worksheet part of which is attached herewith. I would like excel to automatically enter Updated/Inserted in column B against Individuals' names as per the instructions given in column A. For example: As per instruction in A9, B13:B16 should show Updated. I have tried to use the nested if function, but it does not work as I want it to. Also as I am not used to macros or VBA codes, could this problem be solved with formulas?

Extracting Text From A Cell

Jun 25, 2009

Need formula to extract the text from a cell, with which a vlookup will be preformed on? For example if a cell contains: 116PH(604052) I would need to perform a vlookup on the PH.

The problem is that the "PH" in this case can vary where it's at in the string of numbers. Also, some cells may only have a three digit number with the two letters following. See my attached spreadsheet as an example. The current formula I have in column A on the attached spreadsheet performs the vlookup fine if there is only the three digit number followed by the two letters, but as I've outlined above, this isn't sufficient.

Extracting Certain Text From One Cell To Another?

Dec 21, 2011

I currently have an issue with sorting data that i download into excel.

I have a list of rows that have text that look something like the below:

redeem: 141BA9835E Colour: Silver

I want to copy only the colour at the end of each of the colours into a new cell. So in theory the formula will pick only the colour out. Below is a list of more rows as an example where it changes slightly:

redeem: C3CC237E3C Colour: Silver

redeem: db56b2177c Colour: Pink

redeem: 7d3fe7eba2 Colour: Black

redeem: EBE56BDA7A Colour: Silver

To summarise have can i extract into the cell next door, only the colours from text

Currently i am having to manually type only the colour into a cell, and it is taking forever when you have 1000's or rows

Extracting Text In Cell

Sep 2, 2009

I am trying to extract a partial string from a cell. There are 2 lines in each cell seperated by ALT + Enter


What I want to do is extract only the first line of the text and put it into the next column.
I've tried using the FIND, SUBSTITUTE formula, but because the 1st line of the address varies in length, it seems to cause more problems than it solves.

Remove First Part Of String Of Text And Keep The Second Part?

Feb 12, 2014

Is there any way to remove the first part of a string of text in a cell and save the second part?

The first part of the text string is a team code that has a variable number of numbers, capital letters and sometimes spaces. The second part of the text string is a variable number of words in a team name that all start with a capital letter and have lower case letters. Every line has a different team code and team name.

The original spreadsheet also has a column with just team code. Is there a way of using this column to "subtract" the team code from the text string to just leave the team name?

I am trying to do a vlookup and am having soem issues. I have data like this in the cell i am using as the reference: "60030 - COLUMBUS, OH".

To Bold A Part Of The Cell Text

Apr 8, 2007

I am creating a sheet with the cell information coming from different cells. I want to bold and/or underline a part of the cell to add clarity.

For e.g.
Cell A1 = "Trans X" (Name of the transaction);
Cell B1 = "System Y" (System where the transaction exists)
Cell C1 = "Type Z" (Type of transaction)

I want to create a cell which has
Newsheet.Cell (x,y) =
"Name: Trans X
System: System Y
Type: Type Z"

I created the String by reading and concatenating the values, but I am not sure how to add the formatting to a part of the string.

Pull Part Text From Cell

Aug 8, 2007

Consider the following:

Cell A1 has this text in it:

WT*495*001559369~G3**D1234567**XX**20070626*1740****DHLC*20070807~B4G*RX*1~C32*UDD**UAD~ITQ*05*3****20030711*12~N1*FF*LALALA*25*00802109480~N3*12A46 KRESSASLE

Is it possible to somehow filter, search, find, etc, and basically clean cell A1 so that in the end it has just G3**D1234567?

I made a search macro, but the problem is there is so much text that it takes 2 seconds per cell to do a find. There are 6 columns with 65000 rows. I assume if I clean up each cell and do a "xlWhole" instead of "xlPart" in the find code, it will be much faster.

A1 = WT*495*001559369~G3**D1234567**XX**20070626*1740****DHLC*20070807~B4G*RX*1~C32*UDD**UAD~ITQ*05*3****20030711*12~N1*FF*LALALA*25*00802109480~N3*12A46 KRESSASLE


A1 = G3**D1234567


Note that all rows do have a "~G3**" before the actual number I am doing a search for.

Hyperlink Part Of Cell Text

Jan 31, 2008

in order to hyperlink a single peice of text in a cell and not the whole cell I have created a shape with no fill or line but added text. I then hyperlinked it to a location in the workbook. When I set the Move and size with cell property I am not geting the expected result. If I resize a row well above that cell, the object isn't following the cell it wa placed in. I would be happy with alternative mechanisms for putting independantly linked text.

Extracting Hyperlink Text From Cell For Editing?

Jun 6, 2013

I have inherited multiple spreadsheets with thousands of hyperlinks in a single column, from all of which I need to extract the hyperlink text to audit it and edit it. The hyperlinks are only displaying less than useful words such as "Go To" "View" or "Click Here", for example.

Manually, I can right-click on the cell, select Edit Hyperlink, press Ctrl+End to select the entire link, press Ctrl+C to copy it, click on OK to close the editing dialogue, then paste it in the destination cell. That's easy, and good if you only have a few to do, but very tiresome if you have more than a dozen. Life's too short to do all those I need to do manually with a 29 day deadline!

I tried setting up a Macro to do it for me, but couldn't get it to work down a column and paste the result in the destination cell on the same row as each successive cell was located. I do very little Macro work, and I find Excel to be less than intuitive in this respect, so I gave up. (At least in Word you can see the whole step-by-step process in the Macro Editing window and easily fix it, if need be...).

One previous discussion, dating from 2006, supplied two answers. See [URL]

Should I set up a Macro and insert the above Function into it? Or is there a completely different way to do it? how to do this in Excel 2003/WinXP is very welcome.

What i would like to be able to do is to split out the data in column A so that the text before the 'Stn' (but including Stn) are shown in column C with text after 'Stn' is shown in column D. i have looked at using =LEFT, =MID or =RIGHT with =FIND but the problem i have is that the text prior to the letters Stn could be one, two, three or four words and the text after could be similar.

Truncating/extracting Number From A Text Cell

I am trying to plot data that I have read out of a PLC (via csv file) . The date/time data shows up as follows: 2007-05-14T02:15:00.020-07:00

In this example, the suffix .020-07:00 is extra information and causes problems with graphing the info. Also, the cell is a not a number value, and I can not force it to be a general, number format.

I would like to truncate the cell or extract the time out of it such that I can plot the PLC data in a meaningful "parameter vs time" graph.

Finding Part Of Text Then Copy Value Of Other Cell

Mar 26, 2014

Here's the situation (an example):

I have sheet1 that contains the following information

Column A Column B
company1 - book value 0,5
company1 - earnings 0.2
company1 - R&D 1111
company1 - total assets 200000
company2 - book value 2
company2 - earnings 333
company2 - total assets 12

So column B contains only numbers and note that for company 2 I do not have any numbers on R&D.

I have in sheet2 only once the company name. I would like now that if column a contains the text "book value" to have the value of column B pasted in sheet 2 column B. Same for earnings to be pasted in column C. R&D in column D and if R&D is not present for that company then the value should say something like unknown.

Find Part Of Text Within Cell And Replace From Another Cell

I need to find the "x" in range C2:C44 and replace it with a value (variable) specified in cell I2

The catch is that I then need to be ablt to change that character when I2 changes.

Coloum C


I2 - Variable = B
*T’x’STATUS will become *T’B’STATUS

I2 - Variable = A
*T’x’STATUS will become *T’A’STATUS

But " *OFF " should not change.

I can change *T’x’STATUS to *T’B’STATUS but then I can change *T’B’STATUS to *T’A’STATUS

Please see attached example file as it shows it better than I can explain it.
