Finding Numbers From String

Aug 11, 2009

I am trying to find numbers from a string. I have for example words "EUR Fwd 9x12" and "Eur Fwd 11x15" And i want to write a function that reads the first number from a string if there is only one number before "x" or two numbers if there are 2 numbers. So I have tried to build following function:

Function NumbersInString(Word As String) As Integer
Dim i As Integer
Dim FirstNumberInString As Integer, SecondNumberInString As Integer
For i = 1 To Len(Word)
If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i, 1)) Then
FirstNumberInString = Mid(Word, i, 1)
If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i + 1, 1)) = False Then
Exit Function
Else
SecondNumberInString = Mid(Word, i + 1, 1)
End If
End If

Next
NumbersInString = FirstNumberInString & SecondNumberInString
End Function

Finding Numbers In Text String

May 11, 2010

In a data report i have a column which contains a mix of text and may contain an 8 digit number which could start in 0.

for example

in column A i could have "Hello how are you 01237232 I am fine"

I wish to extract the number into a seperate column, and would ordinarilly use a mid or left/ right function, however the text infront and behind the number will vary in length, which means i cannot do this.

The number will always be 8 digits, could start in 0 but will not always, and it may not be present in all the cells in this column.

How I an achieve this?

Finding Common (repeated) Numbers In Columns Of Numbers

Mar 21, 2008

I work for a charity and I have to cancel the donations of people whose credit card donations have been declined in three consecutive months.

If in Column A I have a list of donor IDs whose credit cards were declined in Jan 2008, in Column B I have a list of donor IDs whose credit cards were declined in Feb 2008 and in Column C I have a list of donor IDs whose credit cards were declined in Mar 2008, is there a way of showing in a fourth column which donor IDs were common (repeated) in Columns A, B and C? I would have a title for each column in A1, B1 and C1, and also the column where the repeated donor IDs would be displayed.

Finding One String Within Another

Mar 13, 2013

I have this formula on my worksheet to test if column A="-" or "+"

Code:
=IF(OR(A:A="+",A:A="-"),NA(),"")

I would like to enhance this so that the test looks for the the + or - inside column A which might be a whole string rather than just one character and returns the same result (an NA# error if found).

I am doing this so I can then use SpecialCells to clear the cells containing the + or -

Finding The First Number In A String?

Jul 31, 2014

I'm trying to extract the number portion from the following string. I'm trying to use FIND to find the first digit between 1 and 2 so I used an "or" argument along with the code number, however it's not working here. What I really want to do is find any digit between 1 and 9 in the string, however I started with this formula for now. why this doesn't work and provide a better formula. I want to understand why this didn't work to understand the functions better. Text string is as follows "standard VAT rate: 20% (Jan 1984)". The formula I used in the following =MID(A253,FIND(OR(Char(49),CHAR(50)),A253),2) where A253 contains the string. Is it possible to use a logical argument within a find?

there is AT() which finds the first occurrence of a string searching from the left like FIND() and SEARCH(), and RAT() which finds the first occurrence searching from the right-to-left.

A single column with names:
John Doe
Jane Marie Smith
Dr. Alex R. Jones

I need two columns that would look like:
John.................Doe

Finding The First Number In A String

Apr 8, 2007

We are trying to make either a macro or a function that will look through the contents of a cell, find the first NUMBER and then paste the results to another column. Below is an example of what may be in cell A1:

#BC7K,03/30/2007,0.00636,0.0069,0.00614,0.0062,0.0,0

We want only to find the FIRST NUMBER in this string, so the result should be 7.

Lookup But First Finding A Unique String?

Jul 3, 2014

mockup.xlsxStarting out with a 9 by 11 grid.

Column A will have times that need to be referenced in a lookup. (Ex Sat 8:00am)

Row 1 will have basball field codes reference with a lookup. (Example Field 4

Cells B2:I11 have distinct codes or possibly nothing. (An example would be: Tier 1 A1-A3)

These codes will move around from time to time. They will always remain distinct within the grid, but could appear in any of the cells from B2:I11.

I have 2 columns I want to populate with values from the grid.

First is Fields. I want the first cell to populate with the baseball field found in row 1 of which the code Tier1 A1-A3 falls under.

For example if this season Tier1 A1-A3 is found in the column under Field 4, then I need to return Field 4 as a result.

Second is the time. I want the time to be populated based on what row the Tier1 A1-A3 code falls in.

For example if Tier1 A1-A3 is in the Sat 8:00am row, then I need that value returned.

In short, I need to search the grid and find a given value. I then need to use a lookup (or other tool) to return the first value in that row. And secondly via lookup return the first value in that column.

edit: added spreadsheet example. First sheet is grid in question, 2nd sheet is a typical schedule.

The first Team (Scared Hitless) is A1, the team they play first is Sands Duel Fuel (A3) They play at 11:00am on Field TR3.

You will see on the grid under TR3 and Sat 11:00 the code Tier 4 A1v3. This code is what I want to search and correlate into times on the schedule rather than doing the data entry by hand.

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 am trying to search for a string of numbers (column 2) in an array, and have "YES" be written on the same line in column 3 if the string is found in the names ANYWHERE in column 1. Please see the desired results on the picture in column 3.

I have tried many things, including SEARCH function which can only work with 1 cell not many, COUNTIF and more advanced functions, but I think have not succeeded because of my lack of knowledge in arrays.

Finding A Number Within A Text String

Oct 28, 2007

I want to find a number within a text string, then count the letters in the same string, then add the number to the number of letters.

For example, if I have 9RR in a cell, I want to add 9 + 2 = 11.

The data will always be arranged with the number on the left side of the string.

So, if the number is a single digit, I know I can use left(A1) + len(A1) -1 to get my desired result. But, the trouble I am having is what if there is a double digit number like 10RR...I'm not quite sure how to create a formula (without using VBA) to give me a result of 12 for this cell.

Finding Text String & Format

Apr 10, 2008

I have a mass of text in a cell. I would ideally like to search the text to format in a different font colour so it can be easily seen where the specific text is.

My current way is to use SEARCH in conditional formatting but this changes the whole cell not the specific text I am interested in.

EG. - I interested in the text PETER in my cell so would like PETER to be in red font.

A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked; If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

Finding Text Within A Longer String

May 21, 2008

i need help with 2 formulas to return text within a longer string.

the first result i need is a style #. this will always start at the 5th character, but the length is variable. it will always end right before the last "/" or "" in the string (there may or may not be a / or within the style number)

the 2nd result i need is a description of the style. this will always be after the last "/" or "" in the string and end before a ".", but there may not always be a period in the string.

Text string: ABC123123BASIC TEE.black
Style # result: 123123
Description result: BASIC TEE

Text string: DEF/4567LEAH/FLORAL TANK DRESS
Style # result: 4567LEAH

Finding Location Of Last String Of 26+ Consecutive Blanks In Row?

Jan 18, 2013

I've attached an example of the data I am trying to solve this problem for. Basically I am looking for strings of 26 blanks or more in a row, but I want to determine the ending location of the last string of 26+ blanks. I've been able to determine the location of the maximum string of blanks, but that max group of blanks isn't always the last set over 26.

Any link to find the location of last string of blanks of 26 or more? The example I attached is a good example since there are two strings of 26+ blanks with the last one being shorter. I've also include the answer I'm looking at the end of the data in the example.

Finding String In Excel Using VB6 ADO - Return Column And Row

Jul 13, 2011

I am trying to use ADO via VB6 to find a specific input in row A of my excel sheet.

I then want it to return the Column and Row to me separately.

I have a code I already use for returning specific values from cells:

Code:
Function Look(ClosedWorkbookFullName As String, _
SheetName As String, RangeAddress As String) As Variant

Dim conn As Object, rs As Object, SQL As String
Set conn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set rs = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")

[Code] ......

Now I want something like this I can use as a function, but it obviously needs tweaks.

Finding Date Within String (hyperlink) And Pasting Value

Feb 26, 2008

I have a sheet which contains a folder listing of files with the filename displayed as a hyperlink.

I would like to have a formula which works out a couple of values based on the file name which has been copied into a given cell as a hyper link.

In my sheet Column F contains the file names (as hyperlinks)

e.g. Anab AM1 2006-02-27.pdf
or CD 01_02 2006_05_18(2).pdf

I'd like to create a formula for Column A which will give me the first 2 blocks of text which are seperated by a space (in the examples above it would be "Anab AM1" and "CD 01_02") Anything after the second space should be ommited (including the 2nd space itself)

I'd also like column B to find the date within the filename. Note this is not always the rightmost part of the filename (excluding the .pdf) I've worked out I can use the Find function to find the '2006' (I'll always have the same year in here as my folder listings are sorted by year) but it returns the character where 2006 is located e.g. for "Anab AM1 2006-02-27.pdf" it gives me 10.

My date formats are always in the form yyyy-(or_)mm-(or_)dd

VBA Function For Finding A Character In A Text String

Mar 12, 2008

Is there a function in VBA that is similar to either the FIND function or SEARCH function in Excel? The arguments for the FIND function in Excel are FIND(find_text, within_text, [position]).

I have a text string in VBA ("$A1:$D$13") that I want to be able to identify the first "$" and then later the ":". I'm getting tripped up on the 3rd line of code. Thanks a million.


Sub page_set_print_area()
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "$A$1:$D$13"
x = ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea
Position$ = Search("$", x, 0)

Finding Text That Matches Format Criteria In String?

Oct 3, 2011

I'm trying to restructure a list of files at work into a format that makes some sort of sense and can be filtered into useful information.

Part of what I need to do, is match up all the drawing numbers that a certain project references. The numbers are formatted like "####A##" ex. 1234A01,1234A02,5678A01, etc. The cells that I need to extract drawing numbers from contain some description or other text (not just the drawing number) so I need to extract the drawing number from that cells value. (Ex. I need to get the drawing number 1234A01 from a cell whose value is "blah blah 1234A01 blah blah blah")

I was thinking I could just search the string for "####A##" but I'm not really sure how....I tried instr, but I think its searching for the literal value of "####A##" rather than treating the # characters as wildcards...

I tried:

Code:
if rngNames.Cells(intx, 2).Value Like ("*####A##*") then
set intStart = instr(1,rngnames.Cells(intx,2).value,"####A##")
'....
end if
but intStart remains 0, so this method is not working...

Count Certain Numbers In A String Of 12 Numbers

I have a field that contains the following: 012100002030

I need a formula that will tell me whether or not the string contains a number higher than 2 or whether or not it contains more than one 2.

Examples:

001000002011
111111000022
401110000000

the first loan would not meet the criteria as it contains no number higher than 2 and only contains one 2.
the second loan would meet the criteria as it contains two 2's.
the 3rd loan would meet the criteria as it contains a number higher than 2.

I've looked at the SUMIF function but it did not do exactly what I wanted. It finds a number or adds numbers only if they are in range it seems.

What I want is the following:
Return sum between 500 and 1000 in one cell.

ie. number: ... (5) number: ... (59)

1 28 19 20 5 9 80 72 12 38 50 53 59 83 ...

Finding What Numbers Are In One Column But Not The Other

Nov 10, 2009

I have a large list of numbers in two columns. I need to know what numbers are in column A but don't appear in column B. For example if the numbers are 1 2 and 3 in column A but column B only has 1 and 2 I need to know that 3 is missing.

the only thing I can think of is doing =IF(A1=B1,"TRUE","FALSE") however typing this a thousand times would not be practical.

Is there a macro that can check column A against column B and tell me which ones are missing?
