Formula To Split Text Into Groups Of 30 Characters But Control As Well

May 28, 2014

I have previous been given the below macro from here that splits a string of text in one cell into groups of 30 and then puts them into several cells, works perfectly.

What I would like to incorpate now is the ability to overide the point at which it splits the text.
i.e. if the inputter puts a "|" (for example) in the original text, this will cause a split in the text and it will restart its 30 count from this point onwards.

Example of what I would like to achieve:

Cell A1 = I would like to change this string of text into groups of 30, where this appears | I would like it to start a new split of 30s from this point on wards and again if another one of these | appears in the text.

Cell B1 = I WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE THIS
Cell C1 = STRING OF TEXT INTO GROUPS OF
Cell D1 = 30, WHERE THIS APPEARS

Excel Formula To Split Words With Characters Limit Per Cell?

Dec 6, 2010

I am suffering with split a long descriptions into 3 cells with criteria 1st cell not more than 30 characters, 2nd cell not more than characters and 3rd cell will locate the remaining characters there. I think this is quite easy if I use LEN/MID/RIGHT/LEFT formula. However, I wish the formula will smart enough to split word by word. refer to example below:-

"My lecturer replied, that i really did very bad in final, nothing's gonna change my plan."

If I use left(A1,30) formula, the result is "My lecturer replied, that i re"however, the word "really" is cut half way. I am finding the formula that split description to not more than 30 characters and won't cut my string and become incomplete word. Expected result should be 1st cell "My lecturer replied, that i", then "really did very bad in final," at 2nd cell.

Identifying Groups Of Control Names

Nov 4, 2006

I have successfully generated my code to validate the 60 + text boxes in a MultiPage UserForm. Now I need to identify those TextBoxes that require validation. To aid me I have distinguished those which need to be validated by naming them with a unique suffix, (i.e., _Text vs. _Txt). This code will participate as a Boolean within a With statement as part of the identifying validating code. I realize that a
Right(?, 5) = _Text

statement should do the trick but I cant seem to correctly get the appropriate syntax to use within the parenthesis. Any suggestions? Is there a better methodology out there to accomplish this?

Split & Copy Groups/Segments Based On Cell Value In Column

May 6, 2008

This is my first post but I have been using Ozgrid for awhile now. I am farily good with excel formulas but have just started with macros so bear with me if i dont understand what you mean at first.

I am looking for a way to copy rows our of sheet2 in the attached sheet based on the value in the segments column in sheet 2. The rows need to be paste into sheet3 (already has heading set up). The segments value is the number of times i need each row copied into the next sheet. The purpose of this is to split random length samples into 10cm incriments for study. For example, a 1.5m sample is taken so there should be 15 segments of 10cm each copied into sheet3.

Also, if possible, it would be nice for it to display the actual length of the segment after copied into sheet3 for cases where the length was not evenly divisible by 10. I have found several examples of row copying macros, but none that will copy a conditional number of hte same row based on a cell value. In the original data there are close to 4000 rows, but the number of rows will vary depending on the data source.

Another thought I had was if the total number of available rows is going to be exceded would it be possible to have the rows pasted into different sheets based on the rock type listed in the column?

Text Formula? Postcodes: Seperate The First Or First Two Text Characters From The Rest Of The Postcode

Feb 16, 2007

I am working on sales information which includes postcodes. What i need to do is seperate the first or first two text characters from the rest of the postcode. I have attached a small snipet of what i am working on. Currently i am using the =Left(A4,2) but this will give me in some case a numerical value aswell. For example E1 or G1 in the case of the sample attached. Is there a formula that exists where it will just return the text values in a cell and not numerical values.

Trim Special Characters In Cell To Be To Split Data Into Columns?

Apr 9, 2014

This formula I want to apply it in another workbook. It split in different columns the content of a cell.

The formula is below:

[Code] .....

In cell A2 I have the following data:
|516582-001-99|414816-001-99|414816-003-99|516582-001-99|

If I apply the formula above in cells B2 to E2 it returns a blank cells. But if I delete the first "|" sign in the left side manually the formula works perfectly by splitting the cell into columns from B2 to E2. The issue here is that I have more than 300,000 records. Just imagine the amount of time invested in just deleting the first "|" at the left side.

I need a variation of the formula above that in first place delete the first "|" at the left side and after that continue with the proper work of the formula.

Deleting Groups Of Rows When Specific Text Data Is Populating Row?

Feb 14, 2013

I have a complex report with thousands of lines I am trying to clean up. In order to do this, I need VBA that recognizes specific text data starting after row 9. When it sees this, it will need to select and delete the 2 rows above it, the row it is in, and the 6 rows below it. 9 rows in total, some of which are blank. The text will repeat every 47-50 rows, but I cannot say exactly when it will repeat again. When it is repeated, I need the 9 rows deleted. At this time, there is only 1 column in the report because I need to split out the data in the cell into adjoining cells. Since I have not solved that yet, I need to just delete the entire row.

The text is written with spaces between each letter and a double space between words. It reads, "B I L L I N G M A S T E R I N V O I C E S E T U P L I S T I N G"

Text To Columns :: Macro To Split Text

Jun 17, 2008

I am trying to write a micro code to split text which is copied into cell A1 into columns. I can do this fine by going to "data" the "text to Columns" and selecting the places i want to split the text (this is the same for every piece of data i copy in).

The macro works perfectly every time. the problem is that the spreadsheet is shared and i want to protect certain cells on the sheet, when i protect the sheet the recorded macro does not work as the "data", "text to columns" is not available in a protected workbook.

I was just wondering if someone could help me, so i can run a macro to split the text which also allows me to protect cells. In the "text to column" option the "fixed width" (column breaks) i choose are: 4, 25, 34 and 43.

I need to make sure the cell starts with a zero (Because the cell starts with a zero I have it as a text cell)

Split Text Into Columns?

Jun 4, 2014

I am having quite a bit of a challenge here and am not able to code to split the text into columns. The text to columns does not work here unfortunately. Below is my situation. In one column that has the contract details I have the data as follows:

Account Manager Jennifer MacFarlane CONSULTING - GENERAL on 20-JUN-13 Function #:176749
Account Manager Janet Bewers CONSULTING - GENERAL on 25-JUL-13 Function #:176878
Account Manager Janet Bewers HEAT STRESS AWARENESS on 27-JUN-13 Function #:176828
Account Manager Janet Bewers TRACTOR SAFETY AWARENESS on 08-AUG-13 Function #:177383

What do I key in to get Account Manager in one column, the name of the person in another column and the one in caps in another column and the date in one column and the function in another column. I tried using left, right and LEN and something is terribly wrong with my logic
