How To Extract A Value From Between Brackets
I have a value that is bracketed and I just want the number extracted to another cell.

I've shown three part lines of the data I need to extract from.


The values I need are 53.5 from line one-53.0 from line two & 54.0 from line three.

As you can see they don't always sit in the same column.

Extract Data In Brackets/Parenthesis
I am importing into Excel a list of contacts from a txt file so I can make a mailing label database. I am able to seperate out the various parts of the address just fine but here's where it gets tricky.

Below is a example of the text I am importing:
Mr Dow Jones, 600 DIXON ROAD, TORONTO, ON M9W 1J1, CANADA (1-416-6757611)

I need Excel to look at the cell containing the country name and: 1st. see if there is a phone number present (this is the numbers between the () and if there is - place the phone number in Cell F1 and place the Country in Cell E1 but strip out both the () and the phone number. If there is no phone number present (and therefore no () I need Excel to go ahead and place the country name in E1

Extract Text Strings Within Brackets From Range
I have a column of data in the following format:

Hardware (somethingsmall) otherinfo
Hardware ( somethingdisplaced)
Blackbox item (somethingelse) other info


I need to extract the data within the brackets allowing for additional spaces for use in a second query which will search for each individual line item in turn.

For some reason the query does not like searching for the raw data in it's current format so I'm trying to extract the key information for searching instead.

I can do it in excel by:

(Assuming data is in cell V36)

'in colum x

'in column y

'in column z

in column aa
=IF(LEFT(Z36,1)=" ", MID(Z36,2,20),Z36)

I have tried doing this cleverly in VBA and failed and then ended up trying to enter this code in the cells within the VBA code and do it that way but I'm having difficulty in doing this also.

Extract Alphanumerics From String
I have many strings of arbitrarily length. Each string always
has one number (0-9) component and one alpha-character (A-Z) component.

The order of the components in the string is entirely random.

Sometimes numbers come first and sometimes letters/characters.

Also, the length of each separate component is also varies and
there is no fixed rule to how long it will be each time.

Examples are:

String: RGH45 Alpha: RGH Num: 45
String: 4589THF Alpha:THF Num: 4589
String: FGGFFF56464645464 Alpha:FGGFFF Num: 56464645464
String: sdgdfgdfg874645 Alpha:sdgdfgdfg Num: 874645
String: 54sfsdfdsf Alpha:sfsdfdsf Num: 54
String: s54654646 Alpha:s Num: 54654646


I want to have two strings. One called Alpha and One called Num
I want to have the alpha-character component to be extracted from the string
and set to Alpha and the numerical component to be extracted & set to Num.

How/what is the Excel Macro VB code to accomplish this from within the macro?

I need to loop through each cell and extract each of the numbers and list them in a separate range. If applied to the above range of cells the function would show the below in the ouput range. Each number in its own cell.

Extract 5 Digit Number From String

Extract Number From Alphanumeric String ..
I would like to parse a part number.


if there is a "-#-" in the string, that is the value I want. If the "-#-" is not present, I would like to take the first number. Currently, as written in your first example, I am getting the first number - excellent and thank you!

In the sku, the first digit reprepresents capacity. If a second number is present after the capacity portion of the sku (i.e. "-#-"), that means that they want to order it filled with less than capacity. For instance, a carton of eggs and they want 6 eggs instead of the max capacity of 12. (i.e. egg12-6-z2z). Numbers after the second octet (i.e. z2z) do not matter.

It would be a number only in the second octet. If there are characters with it, the equation should disregard it.

Here are the scenarios, and what the formula should accomplish

1) egg12 --> currently returns 12
2) egg12-6 --> would return 6
3) egg12-6-g2c --> would return 6
4) egg12-g2c --> would return 12

Extract Multiple Text Strings From A Long Text String
An original text string entry appearing in an Excel cell would be:

"N7C Neuroprotective J5Z Antiviral, other M2Z Antiarthritic, other J5A Antiviral, anti-HIV"

I need to extract N7C, J5Z, M2Z and J5A from this string and list these alphanumeric values in separate cells adjacent to the original text string. The challenge is that these alphanumeric references may appear in different positions within the original string with no fixed value e.g. a "," separating them. The alphanumeric references may also be 3 or 4 characters in length and there may be different numbers of alphanumeric references in the original string.

Another example would be (very different from the first):

"T2Z Recombinant, other K5B Radio-chemoprotective J3Z Antibacterial, other D3A Vulnerary A10C Symptomatic antidiabetic K6Z Anticancer, other R8A Antiasthma B6A Septic shock treatment I1Z Immunostimulant, other S1Z Ophthalmological R8B Antiallergic, non-asthma M1A1 Anti-inflammatory"

You can see that in this further example "A10C" & "M1A1" are 4 character alphanumeric strings wheras the others feature 3 characters.
