# Formula To Separate Numbers From Text

Oct 28, 2012

I know I can use text to columns to do this. I have horse results listed in column A as follows 3.5L (i.e. 3.5 lengths), 4L and so on. Every number ends with an L. I want a formula in column O that just gives me the number as below:

3.5L 3.5 (in column O)
4.5L 4.5

and so on.

## How To Separate Text From Numbers Into Two Separate Cells

Feb 13, 2014

I'm trying to separate text from numbers into two separate cells...

Essentially, I would like the users to copy and paste data into Column A, as seen below. Then, hopefully by formula separate the text characters into Column B and the numbers into Column C.

Input: Output 1: Output 2:

Col A Col B Col C
Wells 123 Wells 123
Wells 1234 Wells 1234
Wells Fargo 123 Wells Fargo 123
Wells Fargo 1234 Wells Fargo 1234
Wells Fargo Inc 123 Wells Fargo Inc 123
Wells Fargo Inc 1234 Wells Fargo Inc 1234

Ideally, I would like to do this with a formula...

## Separate Text And Numbers

Aug 22, 2007

creating a formula to separate the text from the numbers into 2 separate columns.

Examples are:
A1= Angel Romero 260.00
A2= Wieben Chiropractic Clinic 74.00
A3= R Ricardo Ramirez Dds 340.00

The 'Text to Column' function does not work because there is no fixed width and no deliminater. To add in a deliminater, like a "", is an option but there are thousands of cells to do this to.

As you can see, using LEFT, RIGHT and MID functions become tricky since the deliminater would be a "space" but there are often several "spaces" in the string of characters.

Is there a way to SEARCH or FIND the first number and let that be the deliminater?

## Separate String Of Text Containing Letters And Numbers

Apr 22, 2014

I am in need of a formula that will separate a string of text. Specifically, I want to pull out the number values (including cents) from the rest of the text. This is how the text reads:

10.00 OVERDRAFT PROTECTION TRANSFER FEE
10.00

56.00 ELECTRONIC/ACH DEBIT
56.00

199.00 ELECTRONIC/ACH DEBIT
199.00

## Splitting Text And Numbers From 1 Column Into Separate Columns

Jul 24, 2014

I have some data that is both text and numbers in the same cell. I would like to split the the data so that the text is in one column and the numbers are in another column.

The numbers are all a fixed length (15 chars) so I know that I can use the following formula = RIGHT(A1,15)

However I am not quite sure how to split the text as the length can vary as as well as the number of words in the string.

For example A1 is 1 word with 7 characters but A2 is 2 words, 14 characters long inc space.

A1 Goodwin 000710280740120
A2 Gillette Ridge 000715058510122

B1 Goodwin
C1 000710280740120

B2 Gillette Ridge
C2 000715058510122

## Separate A Line Of Alternating Text/Numbers Into Columns

Jul 20, 2009

I have thousands of lines of data that are of the following form:

Jackson, TN 9623 BCBS TN 98 UnitedHlthCare 2
Jacksonville, FL 3577 Aetna 47 BCBS FL 37
Knoxville, TN 3796 Cariten 44 John Deere 41
Lakeland-Winter Haven, FL 2165 UnitedHlthCare 31 Aetna 29

I need to separate these lines into columns such that, for example, the first line would be in 6 columns: (Jackson, TN) (9623) (BCBS TN) (98) (UnitedHlthCare) (2)

The delimiter does not work because some of there is no one character that always separates the text and the numbers. I've tried going through in word and typing something like '%' where I want to separate, but with thousands of lines of data that is extremely tedious.

Is there any formula I can use that would be capable of solving this?

## Formula To Add Numbers And Exclude Text Values

Apr 1, 2009

## Amend Formula So Its Counts Both Text And Numbers?

Apr 23, 2014

I have the following SUMPROCUCT in place and it works fine for current purpose:

=SUMPRODUCT(VLOOKUP(\$E\$9,Rota!\$C\$4:\$FU\$369,{5,30,53,78,103,137},FALSE))

columns 5, 30, 53, 78, 103, 137 all contain text. However I need to amend some of these to text but I still need the SUMPRODUCT to add up.

Is there a way to amend the above formula so its counts both text and numbers in 5,30,53,78,103,137 ?

## Numbers And Text In Same Cell & Tally In A Formula

May 10, 2008

Can numbers and text be included in the same cell and still have the number be included in the total in a formula in another cell? Or must a cell only have numeric values for it to be seen/included in a formula's total value.

I'm trying to create a database that totals materials for a construction project. I want to display the number of doors for a house in a row of cells and have the all the doors totaled in the last cell. This I have no trouble doing.

The problem arises when I want to add some text information about the style of each door in the same cell that the number of doors is shown. As soon as text information is added to a cell that has numeric information, that cells numeric information is not included in the final total in the last cell in the row.

I resorted to using comments instead, but, when the are made visible on the spreadsheet, they don't seem to lock to a relative position regarding the cell they're attached to. For instance, if I widen columns or make any significant spatial changes to the spreadsheet, the comments don't move with the changes.

There may be a way to lock comments to stay in a relative position regarding the cell they're attached to. And if that's the only way to make comments for the items in each cell stay with the cell, then I'll have to use that method. But I'd rather not have to use the comments function at all.

I'd much rather be able to have numbers and text be in the same cell, and still have the number value of that cell be included in a formula total at the end of a row of numeric information.

Example: (In this example separate cells that include both numeric values and text are indicated by parenthesis. The final cell that has the formula that totals the numeric information in the separate cells is indicated by brackets)

(30, raised panel doors, unpainted) (10, raised panel doors, white)

## Date Formula To Display In Text Without Numbers

Dec 18, 2009

I want to show a date like 18-12-2008. This wil normal work with =()TODAY-356

="date "&TODAY()-365&""

I want to subtract 1 year of today.

I tried to set my cell to the date format but this did not work.

## Formula To Highlight Text Within A Cell Which Also Has Numbers

Jun 28, 2006

I have attached a file which shows some cells which start with "p" and then a number and some have the same but with the word " total" in them.

I would like to run a formula in the column next to it which will highlight which cells have that word in order that I can data sort a large file and delete the totals.

I think it will be an IF formula on cells that contain criteria.
