# Formula To Get Rid Of Space At The Start Of Text

Mar 21, 2013

I download players names from the internet for a football program I have and then have a formula that separates their names from their numbers. The problem is that in the cell with the players name their is always a space before the name starts. How can I get rid of this space?

2 Tom Bellchambers
4 Jobe Watson
5 Brent Stanton
7 Leroy Jetta
9 Brendon Goddard
11 David Zaharakis
12 Stewart Crameri
15 Courtenay Dempsey

These are all in column A I have the following formula in column D:

=MID(A1,SUMPRODUCT(--ISNUMBER(--MID(A1,ROW(INDEX(\$A:\$A,1):INDEX(\$A:\$A,LEN(A1))),1)))+1,LEN(A1))

The formula separates the names from the numbers but it leaves a space before the name starts such that in column D the first name woud be appear as:

Tom Bellchambers (or - ""Tom""Bellchambers)
Jobe Watson

And so on. My computer tries to match up these names in another sheet but because there is a space before the name begins it doesn't register. I got the formula above from one of you geniuses a while back and have NFI what it really means but alter it slightly so it gets rid of that space at the start of the name.

## VBA - Delete Space (cell Start)

Jan 20, 2009

I often have to work in Excel-spreadsheets which provide values to me in a rather unpractical way. For some reason, every cell entry starts with a space, followed by the value. It makes it impossible to start calculating with the values right away.

I tried
replace: " " with: ""
But that way all the spaces in the sheet are removed, not just the spaces at the start of each cell. I would like to avoid that, as it makes the descriptions a bit difficult to read...

So, any ideas on how to write a little macro (or a tric in Excel itself) which I can use to quickly get rid of those spaces and start calculating?

Desired results: D60

I import a CSV file into Excel where the column title row has column titles that are just one long text string, without any spacing between the words. For example:

I would like a method (formula or macro) that would add a space-character before each uppercase letter (that's not the first letter in the string or an uppercase letter that directly follows another upper case letter). Thus:
CompanySiteDescription becomes Company Site Description
CompanySiteExternalSystemID becomes Company Site External System ID

## Dropdown Or Combobox With Static Space Between Text

Jan 13, 2010

I have a set of date of different lengths that I would like in a dropdown or combobox in a grid like fashion. Example

Apple, Banana, Orange, Kiwi
Mangos, Pineapple, Passionfruit, Guava

and I am trying to get it into the dropdown/combobox as

Apple,----Banana,-----Orange,-------Kiwi
Mangos,-Pineapple,-Passionfruit,-Guava

(without the dashes, the forum does the same thing excel does)

The data is of varying lengths, and the lists are actually parts lists, so they are long and of varying lengths each. Aside from physically going in a manually padding spaces, which isn't feasible given the number of them. The have alphanumeric characters, so jumbled all together seperated by commas is very messy and hard to read. I have tried padding with spaces using a formula but they do not line up right. I have been searching for a solution either having the entries in separate cells and concatenated entries, and still no luck.

17-CBG 17-HLG 15-HIL 15-thn 22-ALV

## Finding Right Syntax For Concatenating A Space In If / Then Formula

Apr 16, 2012

Below is the "real formula"

=IF(SUM(\$F\$4-\$E\$4)= 0," ",SUM(\$F\$4-\$E\$4)) 'If the value is 0 then enter a space in the cell.

And below is the VBA formula

"=if(sum(" & LastRowCell & "-" & FirstRowCell & ")= 0," & " " & ",sum(" & LastRowCell & "-" & FirstRowCell & "))"

The real formula works, but I am having having difficulties with the syntax of the VBA formula. The above VBA formula works to, but enters a 0 in the cell instead of a space.
