## VLOOKUP To Find Values In Text String?

Feb 17, 2010

I need to to highlight keywords within a block of text (string). I don't need to necessarily return a value with the VLOOKUP. I just need to compare keyword list in Column B to the Text in Cell A1. If the word from the list appears in the text, I need it to be highlighted for every instance.

EXAMPLE
Text String (A1)

Welcome to Jake's Car Accessories website. We have all of your car accessory needs including car covers, truck covers, custom car grills and other car accessories.

Keyword List (Column B)
car accessory
car covers
truck covers
car accessories

I think VLOOKUP only works on lists.

## IF.. Contains...then: Search Through The Text String In That Cell And Find A Certain Word, Find And Retrn A Value

May 23, 2006

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.

## VBA Find Partial String In Array And Output Found String Array Value?

Mar 31, 2014

I am trying to do a sort of index match thing using VBA. What I am attempting to do is to use the prefix of a long number and try to find that exact prefix in a string array, and output that string array value. So this is what I have so far as a test:

[Code].....

So I can match the text exactly so if I put PREFIXB in cell A1 in this example, i will get the msg box saying "YES", but if I make it PREFIXB1231k4j3jj1kj32cj, it will display "NO". I want to get it so that PREFIXB will be displayed in the cell that I put the formula in. So if A1 = "PREFIX1AAA100CF" and cell B1 = "=ABC(A1)", cell B1 will display "PREFIX1AAA".

Now the thing is that these prefixes can have different lengths, but will never encompass the exact prefix of another. So if I had a prefix of: PRE1AB, I won't have a prefix of PRE1A.

## VBA; Find String And Copy

Jan 31, 2008

I would like to call up a find box, then be able to search several worksheets for a string, to copy and paste the related row to a new worksheet.

I've gotten as far as being able to search for a string and get the row pasted, as long as the string is defined in my macro. Is there a way though to be able to call up a find box first though, and search for the input variable? (alternatively, I can only imagine a separate piece of code for each variable, of which there are many, and I am actually trying to save time.

## Find Last Row With Text String

## Find Cells Which Do Not Contain A Particular String

I would like to modify the macro below in order to find cells that do not contain */*/20*

How do I achieve this?

Dim cel As Range, cfind As Range
ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Select
For Each cel In ActiveSheet.UsedRange

## Find Out Whether Particular String Exits?

Mar 26, 2013

I know "Instr" find out whether a particular string exits. Can it also tell how many of that particular string appear in a text?

## FIND LAST Occurrence Of String

Nov 12, 2013

I understand that the function FIND(find_text, within_text, start_num) will find the first occurrence of a stated string. And by adjusting the start_num, you can skip a set number of characters before the search begins.

But, is there a way to find the Last occurrence of said string? In my case the find_text string may occur multiple times in the variable length within_text cell to be searched.

Sample: Find the last occurrence of MDU

Code:
Sample string1 - ABDJ FFU MDU WWW AEH JJF MDU JJI LLK OOI HAHA QWAS
Sample string2 - HFUR MDU HDS IGH RJR KDHF LLDE MDU KKJ MDU GGG

In the above 2 sample strings the output of the Find() function needs to be 26 & 40. Having a cell formula would be desirable, but if it can only be done by VBA that is acceptable, also.

## Find Value In String Using VBA Macro []

Nov 20, 2007

4.VOX30-APL
5.VOX30-APS-AP01

In the list over I want to find nr 2 and 3. Using Instr sorting for 'ap' gives me all the list. How could I use string functions in a VBA macro.

## Find Text In A String

Jan 3, 2008

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 " ("

## Find A String And Bold The Row

## Find Is Not Finding Character String?

Jun 11, 2014

I have a cell that has approx 22000 characters. I'm trying to remove a specific character string from a cell by doing a find and replace with "". It works for characters in the first part of the cell but not for characters in the last part of the cell.

Example: I do a find/replace for the characters 21242 to "" in column A and I get the expected results. I do a find/replace on 69294 to "", again I get the expected results, but if I do a find/replace on 85203 to "", I get "Excel cannot find what I am searching for" (but its there!)

My cell size is within the max size of 32,767 characters so not sure why its not working.

Attached a sample worksheet.

I have a list of English game results with the score and the soccers of the game.

## Find Text / String And Replace It?

Jul 4, 2014

I have 4 columns in which is text combined with numbers (Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet t-shirt LPW01-B consectetur adipiscing.) I need to search every column and cells in them for a word/string which is written in R2 and replace the word in every cell by the word in S2

So for example, in R2 is "t-shirt" and in S2 is "potato"

## Find Position Of Various Characters In String

Jul 11, 2014

Is it possible to find the location of different characters in a string (using VBA)? Normally I would use InStr of InStrRev option in VBA but my situation is a little more complicated.

The character I am looking for is not always the same, sometimes it is a , or a . or a : or a "blank" etc

I tried to do it like:
dim strChar as string
strChar = "[,.? /]"

SearchPosition = InStr ("cell location", strChar) (searchposition is the name of the function I am trying to make)

This works if I define only 1 character, this way it gives me a 0 as outcome

I have tried to change it to strChar = "[,]" or strChar = "[.]" or strChar = "[ ]" but this doesn't work.

## VBA To Find Multiple Substrings Within String

Feb 2, 2014

How to return multiple values that are adjacent to a series of the same substring. So here is the setup. Say in cell [A1] I have a very long string. Within this string, the following substring will occur an unknown number of times:

"@baseRate":"499.0"

This part, "@baseRate": will always be the same, but the "499.0" will vary (both the length of that string and the number of occurrences of the string will vary). So I could have a string like this in [A1]:

....."@baseRate":"499.0"........."@baseRate":"399.0".........."@baseRate":"99.0" (the periods are other parts of the string that I am not concerned with)

What I would like to return in [B1]:[D1] would look like the following:

B1: 499.0 C1: 399.0 D1: 99.0

The problem I foresee is the actual rate data I am looking for will not have a fixed length and the "@baseRate" could occur one time or it could occur 30+ times.
