Find Number Within A Text String Using VBA

Sep 4, 2009

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..

Find Variable Size Number Within Text String

Sep 20, 2007

I have a spreadsheet with a couple of hundred rows on each tab that looks like this: A1: #1 PENROSE TIJUANA MAMA PCH 2620039190 665794 12.00 CT 1 Front 1 1 1. The only constant is the 10 digit number followed by the 6 digit number in the middle and I want to use it to parse the text string. I want the output to be everything prior to the 10 digit number in A1, the 10 digit number in B1, the 6 digit number in c1 and everything else in D1 and so on through the rows.

Excel 2011 :: Find Multiple Text Strings In Another Text String

Mar 8, 2013

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.

Find And Return 10-digit Number From String

Nov 3, 2011

I am working with data where I need to extract a 10-digit number from a string. Where the 10-digit number is in the string varies, so I can't use a simple left/len combination. Here's an example below:

Something and email@me.com 1234567890 stuff thingsThe formula I am using now is this:

=MID(F4,MIN(FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},F4&"0123456789")),10)

This finds the first number in a string and returns that number and the next 9 digits for a total of a 10-digit string (so it would return 1234567890). However, I run into an issue when I have a string that has numbers in the email address.

So this:

number in email123@me.com 1234567890 exampleWould return this:

123@me.comIs there a way to modify the formula above so that it searches for 10 consecutive numbers and not just the first number in a string?

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 Text String In A Value Instead Of In A Formula

Jul 18, 2007

What formula can I use to search a range of cell values for a specific text string? My method is searching formulas instead, which is not what I want.

Background: I am developing a little test script for a project and I want to include some automatic validations to help make the job of the testers easier.

What I have set up so far:

1. Testers input numbers into specific fields M8 through M20.

2. Fields N8 through N20 automatically check fields M8 through M20 and compare those with what is contained in a range of hidden cells I set up in advance. A formula ensures that it reports "correct" or "incorrect" on a field-by-field basis, based on the comparison.

3. Cell O8 searches for the text string "incorrect" in cells N8 through N20. If that text string appears in any one of the cell values (not formulas), then O8 directs the tester to test again. If the text string "incorrect" does not appear, then cell O8 reports that the test was successful, and the tester can proceed to the next test (exact same setup repeats).

My only problem is in the formula used for the last step. I have tried a few different formulas I know in cell 08, but none are giving me the results I'm looking for. The closest I have come is a successful search and validation based on the string being in the formula instead of in the value of the given cell.

Find Text String Value Between Quotes

Sep 2, 2007

Formulae Solution prefered if possible--

Is it possible to extract the two text strings between the quotes, placing them in Col. C & D respectively, e.g.
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, " ANTI ", " ANTI-HERO ")
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "SEC9", "SECTOR 9")
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "LNGBRDC", "LONGBOARD COMPLETE")

--Col. C---------------Col.D
Anti------------------Anti-Hero
SEC9--------------- SECTOR 9
LNGBRDC---------- LONGBOARD COMPLETE

There are three types of scenarios-
1) Values enclosed in quotes that begin and end w/ spaces:
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, " ANTI ", " ANTI-HERO ")

2) Values enclosed in quotes that does not contain a leading space or trailing space:
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "SEC9", "SECTOR 9")

3) Values enclosed in quotes that have a space between itself:
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "LNGBRDC", "LONGBOARD COMPLETE")

Find And Replace A Value In A String Of Text

Jan 23, 2008

I am trying to be able to input a value in column A and the string of text in column B will be affected by the value that I put in Column A. And i want to be able to do this with multiple rows with multiple values. Example:

My string of text in column B remains the same until the value of Column A changes. The find/replace will overwrite the "" in the string. This is my string of text in Column B: "^cCHT;all;;t;g;F1;F1;;all;;t;g;F2;F2;;all;;"

A1 value = "ABC"
Resulting Text in B1 = "^cCHT;all;;t;g;F1;F1ABC;;all;;t;g;F2;F2ABC;;all;;"

A2 value = "XYZ"
Resulting Text in B2 = "^cCHT;all;;t;g;F1;F1XYZ;;all;;t;g;F2;F2XYZ;;all;;"

I know that I can accomplish this by creating a button but I was wondering if there is a more automated way like a formula in a cell or something.

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

How To Find Exact Text String Match

Jun 16, 2014

In the four rows of text below I'm trying to match each gas stick to its corresponding gasline.

I think I can count over to "GAS STICK" and get the number. <15> From that point I can count over to "," (comma) and get that number. <26> So the gas stick will be between the first number and one less than the second number. <GAS STICK 1>

I need completing this code to place a the line or stick number in a cell B of the same row. Column A would have the description and column B of the same row would either be "1" or "11" respectively. Column C would be the shortened description (GAS STICK 1).

1] "HUNGA, DUNGA, GAS STICK 1, THINGY"
2] "DOHICKY, GAS STICK 11, THINGUS"
3] "SCAPPEN, DAPPER, GASLINE 1"
4] "SUCH, AND, SUCH, GASLINE 11"

What I need returned in a cell H2 is the numbers beside the Cat ID#

Parse Name & Number From Text String

Jan 11, 2008

I receive a text file daily of between 100 to 50,000 rows. It is a combination of many smaller text files or " records". Each record contains a row containing the name and some particulars . From 1 to 5 rows below that row there may or may not be a row containing the score for that record.

Here is an example of what the rows look like;

4505329 64036593 150090 MS MARY SMITH AB Finished
CRP 3.0 SCORE: 400

From the first row I need to pull out the second string of digits (ex 64036593) and the person's name. From the second row I need to extract the score (400). I would like to copy the three pieces of information to 3 separate columns on another sheet.
Comments
1. the word "Finished" always appears at the end of the row with the name in it but it also appears at the end of every record in it's own row like this;
Finished No Note
2. the strings of digits in the first row can vary in length but there are always 3 of them and they are always seperated by spaces.

I need to extract all the names and scores and put them in a table. If a name is not followed by a score I need to put "no score".

Find Text Between 2 Characters With Multiple Instances In A Single String

Feb 9, 2013

The problem - I'm trying to find a formula that will find text between 2 characters with unlimited instances in a single string and combine the found text to a single string. The character enclosing the text i'm after will likely be a % symbol. This formula would then be replicated down 5000-10000 rows.

eg. 1 - This is %an% example %sentence% to show what I %am% looking for
eg. 2 - This %is another% example of what I %need%

eg. 1 answer - ansentenceam
eg. 2 answer - is anotherneed

Ideally this would not use a macro as it will be applied to an ever expanding data set but I realize that may not be possible.

Find If Text Cell Contains A String Of Characters From Array In Different Workbook

Extracting Phone Number Out Of String Of Text?
