Find List And Count All Words Within A Text String?
Feb 26, 2014
I have uploaded my spreadsheet.
I have a column of text strings on Sheet1, Column A, which I need to check for the presence of keywords listed on Sheet2, Column A
So if any word from the keyword list on Sheet2, Column A is found in, say, cell A2 of Sheet1, the cell to its right (B1) should have a formula to display the count of keywords found in A2. I also would like to see each keyword identified either through a highlight or a list. I need the formula to NOT be case sensitive and the match does not have to be for whole words).
2. Once the entire list is broken down into its many parts, use the pivot table feature of excel to determine how common each of the parts is within the entire data set.
So, my questions are these:
1. Do you believe this is the best way to solve my problem? If not, what would be the preferred method? 2. If this is the best method, what function or script would I use to accomplish the first step of breaking down the lines into their individual parts?

What I am trying to do isn't very complicated. I started on some code, but it's just not good enough to do all of what needs to happen.
A B C
1 Cupcake Monster Aisle 5 Shelf H
2 The Cupcake Ghoul Aisle 2 Shelf P
3 Fred Baxter's Diary Aisle 1 Shelf X
4 Angry Cupcake Beast Aisle 3 Shelf A
5 Everyone Loves Cake Aisle 4 Shelf R
So I have a list of titles that I want to search for a particular string. The title in this list is the "proper" title,whereas the rest of my workbook typically uses a shortened version of the title. Sometimes the two will match 100%, but usually, they will be close.
If the string in the table above has more than 2 words, I want to use the first 2 words to check for a match. If the string has 2 words (will never have fewer), I want to match the first word. I want to do this IF there is no 100% match (if possible or reasonable). I will settle for just matching 1 or 2 words. I want to copy the values to another sheet and then delete the row that I originally got the data from.
What I want to do is search the list for "Angry Cupcake" and return the Aisle and Shelf location of Angry Cupcake Beast. There will never be any other "Angry Cupcake", so I am not worried about mismatches there.
Code: Dim SearchRow As Integer Dim StoryTitle As String[code]....
how to do and can get to work without issues is an exact match. This still leaves out all of the shortened titles though.
Usually it's to count for one unique word in a cell. But what if I have 2 or more unique word in a cell and need to be counted for?
for example 10827Holiday Decorations & Party Supplyholiday decoration supply10827Holiday Decorations & Party Supplyseasonal decorative this category has 5 unique words in the synonym list
11044Facial massagerfacial11044Facial massagerbeauty care product11044Facial massagerbeauty appliance11044Facial massagerbeauty11044Facial massagerbeauty care11044Facial massagerbeauty product11044Facial massagerfacial appliance this category has only 5 unique words although the synonym list is much longer.
I have a text string with 3 data to be extracted and then split throu range, but only specific parts is needed.
string is like that: Name Surname - Number : ################ - Exp : YYMM - Centre etc etc....
Lets say its allways happens in cell A3, for example: Adrian Kukuwas - Number : 1235467890123456 - Exp: 1009 - Centre... I would like a macro:
*that runs only if string starts with a letter, then if so *takes Adrian Kukuwas to cell D3 *takes 1009 (the exp) to B3 and makes it look like 09 10 (or 09_10) *in A3 leaving only the number 1235467890123456 text formated (sometimes the copy source formats the cell for bad)
I have a spreadsheet of part #'s, descriptions, manufacturer names, and manufacturer part #'s. (It's a list of the inventory in my warehouse). Each row contains information for just the item in that row. Row 2 references another part in my warehouse, row 3 yet another, and so on.
Many of the parts have more than one potential manufacturer and part #, (meaning that any of those manufacturer's part #'s are basically the same tool; just different brands. At one time we may get a shipment of one, at other times we may get a shipment of another). For example, a screwdriver may be listed like this:
Part # 1234 screwdriver, mfg Snap-On, part # 456, mfg Stanley, part # 789, mfg Mac Tool, part # 439.
Then further down the list, there may be another part listed like this:
Part # 9980 wrench, mfg Stanley, part #741, mfg Snap-On, part # 852, mfg Proto, part # 369.
If you can imagine that data across the cells of a spreadsheet row, notice how the mfg name 'Snap-On' was the first mfg name on the screwdriver, but it was listed as the 2nd mfg name on the wrench.
So, here's my question: I want to be able to group all of the items made by any one manufacturer together in a new list. If all of the manufacturer names were in the same column, I could simply sort the list by that column, but since I've got thousands of rows with the mfg name I'm looking for in different columns on different rows, I thought maybe a macro could search each row for the word I'm looking for, then if found, take the whole row and copy it to a new worksheet. So the end result would be, If I wanted to see all items of which Snap-On is an acceptable supplier, I could get a list of all potential Snap-On items grouped together.
I'm sorry this is so long. I may have over-worded this and it may not be too clear. I could email an example of the spreadsheet if anyone needed more info to figure out what I'm looking for and was willing to take a look at it.
I'm trying to make a game where from a choice of 16 words the contestant has to choose four of those words that, when another word is placed before or after each word it makes a phrase.
e.g From this list of 16 words albert bell
choosing bell, bottle, print, stocking can all have BLUE placed before them to make bluebottle, blueprint etc. That would be the correct answer. Choosing their four words would be from a drop down list of all 16 words, separate cell for each list options/chosen answer. bell bottle printstockingCORRECT
There would be 4 rows in total for 4 different answers to be made from the 16 words on offer. I have tried everything to get it to work in the 5th cell but it's difficult.
I've been racking my brains trying to find a way of doing this. I have a list (column A in Excel) of over 50,000 organisations and I'd like to know what the most common words used in the names are. Ideally it would great if I could produce a top 10 list of the most common words at the top e.g. Ltd, School or Church with a count in the next column of how times that word it appears
I am having trouble getting my IF statement to test if the cell contains the text "sale" return "X" if not "Y". I need it to search through the text string in that cell and find a certain word, and if it finds that word, retrn a value. I am really having difficulty with is what symbol or function do I use for the logical test? (i.e. =, <>, MATCH, INDEX?)
I have tried Sumproduct and Countif and can not get a proper count of rows that contain specific words in multiple columns. I have attached an example spreadsheet where I am looking for a result of 7 rows that contain 1 to 4 specific words within phrases. The example looks for the words: "virus", "spyware", "malware" & "adaware", and ignores any other words like "aware" or "ware".
How do I use an Excel formula to find which (if any) multiple sets, each of up to 50 words, exist in a series of rows of a spreadsheet - if set A has one or more words found in a searched cell.
A positive result will return a specific value in the designated result cell. If none of the words in Set A is found in the searched cell, the formulae will repeat the test for the words in Set B, and so on.
After all 50 sets of words have been tested, the formula will move to the next cell in the searched column.
New words will be added to the sets of words continually as required.
Multiple words within sets are included in double quotes. Within each set of words there will be some n-tuples of words (i.e. 24 adjacent words) that contain one or more of the words in the set, but for which the formula will be required to return a negative result. Example: Set A = word 1, word2, word 3, "word1 word2 word3". (The words within a set could also be each entered in separate columns, as opposed to all included in a single cell.) The single column of text to be searched is about 10,000 rows.
I am wanting to use the above in a spreadsheet that contains data downloaded from a series of bank accounts to automatically allocate items of expenditure to one of 20 or so different categories of expenditure.
The formula will search the description field to find words that are used in the in the downloaded files from the various accounts to describe each transaction.
If a word describing travel expenditure (e.g. hotel, "holiday inn" but not "holiday travel") is found in the description of an expenditure item - the item cost will be allocated to the TRAVEL EXPENDITURE column, which is one of 20 or so different categories of expenditure.
Happy to consider a different solution if the task can be done better a different way.
Tried using a combination of INDEX/SEARCH/IF in Excel, but was not able to get a correct result. PS I am using Excel 2011 for Mac - which does not allow macros, so the solution needs to be entirely formula based.
refer to the attached workbook for reference. I am looking for a function in Sheet1, Column E that will search for the value of Sheet1, Column A within Sheet2, Column A. When a match is found, the function should look across Sheet2, Columns B - V for values of 1. When such values are found, the function should return the associated value from Sheet2, Row 2. There may be multiple values of 1, and as such, the function should separate values with a comma.
I have a filtered list and want to count the number of times each value appears in the filtered list. I also have other hidden rows that I do not want to include in the count and the filtered rows should not be included in the count either. I have tried countif, pivot tables and subtotal .
I have a sheet in which some of the cells have two strings separated by a linefeed. I have come up with a cumbersome formula which will let me check if either of the two strings is a member of a list stored on another sheet. However, it fails if there is only one string in the cell, presumably as there is no linefeed for the formula to find. How can I modify the formula to cope with this situation?
There are also on occasions, three strings in the cell, but I can't seem to access the middle string with the formula. Simplified spreadsheet attached to show the problem. This must be formula-based, as we have a no VBA policy. If you think there is better way of doing this, please let me know.
I have 4-5 separate lists of words/letters and I would like to combine them in a certain order but creating all possible combinations resulting a new word. It's like a conjugation tool for verbs. For example if List 1 = be/el/ki/meg; List 2= m List3=e/é; List4= gy/" "; List 5=" "/ek/sz/nnek So the output has to be (if the order is List1+List2+List3+List4+List5)= bemegy/bemegyek/bemegysz/bemesz/bemész/elmegy/elmennek/ ..... and all possible combinations.
Preferentially I would like to automate it in a way that it straight outputs into MS Access. Also can it be automated that it reads the list from a file (database)? (Also can it recognize the word by letters? Because the basic word that I would load the program= List2+List3+List4)
I have a very large spreadsheet and want to count the number of times a particular text string shows up in a column. I can't use autofilter due to the 1000 limit.
Here's an example, Column C contains: Dan Parker John Doe Dan Smith Jill Smith
So if I search on *Dan*, the function should return a count of 2.
I've used COUNTIF before to return values when the whole cell = a certain value but in my case the cell may have 200 characters and I want to count based on a fuzzy search. I would like to do this in a function and not a macro.
The following line finds last "non-blank" row in a column. I have a column that has formulas in 10000 rows. Most of the time only first 7000 rows will have data, other cells below will have "". I need to find the last row with real data, not "".
Is there a way to add a condition or check to the following line?
I have the following string of text and want to take out certain parts of it. Assume the string is in cell A1.
In cell B1 I want "Company ABC DEF" In cell C1 I want "10.50%" In cell D1 I want "12/13/2014"
String: Company ABC DEF (USD) 10.50% 12/13/2014
how the MID formulas work (as a bonus)? I used =MID(A1,FIND(")",A1,1)+2,45) and it returns "10.50% 12/13/2014".
So I see that that formula says start from 1 character after ")", count 2 over, and then put in the next 45 characters. How do I do an in between amount, and how do I just have it come from the LEFT but stop when it finds " ("
and to find the value 308: <td align="center" colspan="11" class="INFO">Totale fidi individuati:308<br></td>. after store the value founded in var_1, var_4 and var_308. NOTE: in this case the value are 1, 4 and 308 but the contet of tag the value can change because the page is dinamic, in other case find the value after:
font-weight:bold"> Pagine now is 1 font-weight:bold"> Pagine 1 di now is 4 <td align="center" colspan="11" class="INFO">Totale fidi individuati:now is 308
I am trying to count the number of specific words contained in a specific cell. If my data were static, and the list of keywords was short, there are many solutions such as using multiple instances of the length function as proposed by @shg here.
Suppose I have the following sheet: (column C is what I am trying to achieve)
A B C 1
That is, C2 will tell that B2 contained 3 of the keywords (1X beautiful, 2X happy) and so on.
I have a list of English game results with the score and the soccers of the game.
E.g. : [Steinsson 34, Davies 41, Elmander 46; Fuller 91]
As you can see in the excel, what Im trying to do is to find the time i.e which is the numbers in the field and display them seperately onto the cells beside. So what i need is to Find and extract these numbers 34,41,46,91 and paste them just beside cell on the list.
I can use formula but i can only display 1 number, so i think this might require a VBA script.Thanks in advance guys..
