Take X Characters From One Cell And Y Characters From The Next?

Aug 1, 2014

So we have people's names in a table. First name in one column and last name in another column. We have a 3rd column where we can use 8 characters to do a combination of First 5 of Last Name + first 3 of first name. However, if someone's last name is only 3 or 4 characters, we'd then want to take more from the first name to fill out the 8 characters.

So:
Charles Johnson -> Johnscha
John Smith -> Smithjoh
Willian Wu -> Wuwillia

What's the best way to do that without creating some crazy formula with tons of if/thens?

Selecting Only Alpha Characters From Cell 1 And Merge Another Cell?

Sep 28, 2013

I have an index of 80,000 names from an index. Some names appear in multiple volumes and on multiple pages within a volume. While the name is the same, they are different people. The Roman numeral is the volume and the numeric is the page number.

Example of original data: Joe Shmoe V-225, 310 VIII-22, 86, 110

I have separated the data into separate columns. Now I have:

Col 1 Col 2 Col 3 Col 4 Col 5 Col 6
Joe Shmoe V-225 310 VIII-22 86 110

At this point, I want to combine the Roman numeral in Col 2 with Col 3 and 4 and combine the Roman numeral in Col 4 with Col 5 and 6.

There are way too many records for me to manually enter the Roman numeral where missing.

18 Characters In One Cell

Too Many Characters In Cell

Jan 28, 2010

I have a spreadsheet which I use to enter notes related to particular invoice numbers. A v-lookup pulls the notes into another tab. What I'm running into is that the notes can be quite lengthy - in excess of 1,000 characters. When the notes get too long, they don't all appear in a single cell (unless it's extremely wide).

I'm wondering if there may be a way to maintain my notes in a word doc instead? Maybe in a table that pulls in using a v-lookup? But I'm not able to figure out how to direct a v-lookup to a word doc.

Identify Characters In A Cell And Put Corresponding Word Into Another Cell

Apr 30, 2014

As you can see, in D5, I have the charactor chain SRG-DC01-RA-xxxxxxx, and in D6 I have the charactor chain SRG-DC43-RA-xxxxx.

With the formula that I have entered, I would have thought that E5 would have generated "Lawnton". I don't want the formula to pick up the SRG, the RA, or the number, just the DCXX component.

This is what I have now:
=IF(OR(ISNUMBER(SEARCH({"DC43","DC01"},D5))),"Erskine Park","Lawnton")

which has not changed a thing from:
=IF(OR(ISNUMBER(SEARCH({"DC43"},D5))),"Erskine Park")

Surely I am not far off the mark??

In one of my columns I need to count the characters (alpha/numeric AND blank spaces) in each cell. (Any that are over 300, I will need to manually reduce to under 300.) How can I do this? Basically I would simply like to know which cells exceed 300 characters.

Duplicate Characters In A Cell?

Feb 18, 2013

I am not sure whether this can be done with a function/formula or with VBA, hence posting this query in general. A neat formula however would be the best solution, coz the number of entries varies, in the workbook attached I have 14 different cases though. I need to know when a cell does not repeat any of the possible 7 letters, in each given cell. If there is repetition then leave the cell blank , if all four of the letters are different then place "NR" in the cell.

Removing The / Between Characters In A Cell

May 14, 2009

See the attached file. I regularly receive input files which I have to reformat and upload to a website as a .csv. The website does not like the / between the characters on the Input Data tab. Is there a way to automatically search and remove them and leave the rest of the characters intact? The columns do not always appear in the same order and there could be more or less columns. On the Import Template tab, columns A-I will always be there, so ideally the code should make the changes from the Input Data tab and copy the present columns (J thru whatever) header and data over to the Import Template tab starting in 'J1'. I think that VBA would be the best way to go due to the variable nature of the columns.

How Many CHARACTERS Can You See In SINGLE CELL

Secondly, note the difference between DISPLAY and actual CONTENTS (see formulabar) of the cell. Contentslimits: see helpfiles, but displaylimits check out this code. It will explain itself. Experiment with settings within code.

Option Explicit

Maximum Characters Per Cell

Dec 26, 2006

I have a worksheet that multiple users will be entering in data, this information is then being used to pull into a form located on a sepearte worksheet within the workbook. One of the cells in the input sheet has the potential to have more characters than excel will allow. It is my understanding the maximum number of characters per cell is 1,024.

What is the best way to setup my spreadsheet in the event the data contains more than 1,024 characters. The informatino going into the cell are legal descriptions of property so I want to be able to keep the description together in the final document in the other worksheet. Is there a way the user can input the entire decription in one cell, regardless of the character size, then have a formula to take the first 1,024 characters and put them in one cell, followed by another formula to put the next 1,024 characters in the next cell?

Then in my main document I would use the concatenate formual to combine these two cells into one.

Extracting Characters From Cell

Oct 5, 2008

I have a spreadsheet containing 2 columns. Column B contains a list of item numbers which are made up of either all numeric values or alpha numeric values. Column A will contain the vendor code which must be extracted from the item number in Column B based on the following criteria:

a. If the item # in Column B begins with the letters ZZZ and the next four (4) characters immediately following the ZZZ letters are ALL numeric, then the vendor code = the next four characters immediately following the ZZZ.

b. If the item # in Column B begins with the letters ZZZ and the next three (3) characters immediately following the ZZZ letters are alpha numeric, then the vendor code = the next three characters immediately following the ZZZ.

c. If the item # in Column B begins with the letters AMER, then the vendor code = AMER.

d. If the first four (4) characters in the item # in column B are all numeric values then the vendor code = the first four numeric characters from the item #.

e. If the first three (3) characters in the item # in Column B are alpha-numeric values, then the vendor code = the first three alpha numeric characters from the item # in Column B.

I tried writing the following formula and receive a #VALUE! error message:

=IF(AND(LEFT(B3="ZZZ",ISNUMBER(MID(B3,4,4)*1)=TRUE)),MID(B3,4,4),IF(AND(LEFT(B3="ZZZ",ISTEXT(MID(B3,4,3)))=TRUE),MID(B3,4,3),IF(LEFT(B3,4)="AMER","AMER",IF(ISNUMBER(LEFT(B3,4)*1)=TRUE,VALUE(LEFT(B3,4)),LEFT(B3,3)))))

Just a quick one this (famous last words).

I'm trying to count the number of characters (including spaces) in a cell - is there a formula for this?? =CELL I thought would do it but doesn't

PS What I'm actually trying to do is return the Surname in a cell containing a full name. I can get the first name easy enough with =left(A1,Find(" ",A1)-1 (I take no credit for that...) but can't get the surname - I thought I might be able to use =right but can't.

Format Cell Value To Ten Characters

Mar 29, 2009

I have the following code which formats the cell values in column A to 10 characters on entry:

Sub FormatToTenCharacters()
Dim Cell As Range, LR As Long
LR = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For Each Cell In Range("A1:A" & LR)
If Len(Cell.Value) < 10 Then Cell.Value = "'" & Application.Rept("0", 10 - Len(Cell.Value)) & UCase(Cell.Value)
Next Cell
End Sub
For example:

Enter excel in A1 and it changes to '00000EXCEL
Enter 123456 in A2 and it changes to '0000123456
Enter abc456 in A3 and it changes to '0000ABC456

I want to format it as text so that it does not have the apostrophe (').
