How To Extract A Value From Between Brackets

Jul 31, 2007

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

Jun 9, 2007

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

Apr 12, 2008

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 String Between Characters After Specific String

Dec 22, 2013

I have the following type of info in A1,A2,A3...

citySan Jose

My goal is to get as close as possible to this,so it will be easier to sort and manage

nameHarryage50citySan Joseheight180

I can't use the "" sign as delimiter to separate them into different columns because the age,city,name and height fields are in random positions on different cells.The good thing is person's name will always come after "name" string, age is alwals followed by "age" string, so it cannot be like nameheight40Michigan180

I think the following would be the easiest method(not for me tho).If on B1 I had a formula that said "find the string "name" and write anything after it until you reach the next "" character".On C1 field I could have a formula "find the string "age" and write anything after it until you reach the next "" character.On D1 I would have the same for "height" string,then on E1 for city string.

My question is somewhat similar to this one
Extract A String Between Two Characters

Formula which outputs the data between 3rd and 4th instances of the "_" character.Can we substitute "3rd and 4th" with a specific strings like "age" or "height" ?

=TRIM(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(MID(A1,FIND("|",SUBSTITUTE(A1,"_","|",3))+1,LEN(A1)),"_",REPT(" ",LEN(A1))),LEN(A1)))

Extract Data From A String

Sep 7, 2009

I have a string (as below - Call them A1:A4) which I would like to seperate into 4 columns (Call them B1:E4).

I have successfully seperated the first part using MID (It's always 5 digits) but the second part has a varing length which then impacts on the third and fourth parts of the string.... Any ideas?

87261 WIMBLEDON 10:08 10:10
87169 NEWMALDEN PASS 10:13
87171 SURBITON PASS 10:15
87177 HMPTNCTJN PASS 10:16

To add to this I am using the POCKET PC version of Excel which does not have all functions so at the moment I am limited to which functions I can use (Can you add functions to the PPC?).

Extract Text From String

I need to be able extract a string from within a longer string. The information I want will always start 5 chracters in and be bordered by an underscore either side, but could be of any length. For example in the following string, I would want to extract WF602.


I've been looking at the RegExp functions but can envisage problems with this as later parts of the string (WR34) have the same form as the part I need.

Extract Particular Data From A String

Jun 29, 2012

I have a file which contains one field showing all of the changes to our data. It shows the Field Name followed by a colon: then the Before value followed by a line | then the After value. If multiple fields changed then they are separated by a semicolon;.

I am interest in extracting the Before and After values for changes to the MP.COST field only. Here are examples of the data:

A1 = "MP.COST :4.00|3.50;MP.FLAG :Y|N;"
A2 = "MP.COST :4.25|4.12500;"
A3 = "MP.CODE :125064|200009;MP.COST :4.79|4.66000;"

For A1 I want to pull back 4.00 and 3.50
For A2 I want to pull back 4.25 and 4.12500
For A3 I want to pull back 4.79 and 4.66000

These are all of the Before and After values associated to MP.COST.

Kow I can accomplish this either through an excel formula or piece of code?

Extract 2nd Number From A String

Feb 15, 2013

I wanted to return the second number in a string such as this:"0 of 0 jobs ... View all jobs"

The following worked perfectly:=MID(U3,FIND("f", U3)+1,LEN(U3)-FIND("f", U3)-23)

Until this line came up:"1 of 1 job ... View all jobs"

Obviously the "jobs" changed to "job" because of there being only 1, so the "-23" no longer worked. I need this to get the second number out of the string and it can change because the data is being refreshed from a website so it could easily change from one line to another.

Extract Address From String?

Mar 28, 2013

I have the following string of text and need to find a way to extract the address and city (separated)

Paste!A2 = 000-0000-0000 12-Mar-13 0.00 12-Mar-13 100.00- J Doe 1111 Excel Rd Vancouver BC 000.00 W
Paste!A3 = 000-0000-0000 12-Mar-13 0.00 12-Mar-13 100.00- J Doe 111-2222 Random Ave Calgary AB 000.00 W

The spaces separating the name address and City do change so i have not been successful using a simple Mid/right/left Find formula. Also the street addresses can include a unit # as shown in the text string above. I am honestly at a loss

End results would of course be:

G2 = 1111 Excel Rd
G3 = 111-2222 Random Ave
H2 = Vancouver BC
H3 = Calgary AB

Extract The Last Number From A String?

Jun 20, 2014

It's for listing items to eBay. Ink Toners to be precise, the macro I have creates everything I need for a listing with a few msg prompts and importing data from another sheet. Saves me hours of work. Each cartridge has a Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow. The macro works fine for cartridge sets that go under one name. E.g: Brother TN325 Black, TN325 Cyan, TN325 Yellow... etc.

I've run into an issue with some cartridges which have different names: HP C530a Black, C531a Cyan, C532a Yellow...

I set the macro up to deal with different number, by removing the last character of the "tonername" string "C530", then replacing it with "C531".. etc.

What I haven't factored in is the ones with an A on the end. I need a way to tell it to ignore the a if there is one.

To make it clear, I will be inputting the text: C530a From this, I need to create 3 more strings: C531a, c532a and C533a

Here's the snippet of code I'm using to achieve what I'm already doing.

Selection.Replace What:=A, Replacement:=Left(y, Len(y) - 1) & "1"
Selection.Replace What:=b, Replacement:=Left(y, Len(y) - 1) & "2"
Selection.Replace What:=c, Replacement:=Left(y, Len(y) - 1) & "3"
