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.

Formula To Ignore The Brackets And The Figures In The Brackets
I have a small problem that I may be able to deal with in another way, but if all else fails then I need some assistance.

I have this formula:

But unfortunately there will be a time when cell U1 will have the contents of perhaps 12(1). Is there any way to get the formula to ignore the brackets and the figures in the brackets?

Automating Brackets
I found a template at it's just a bracket. I feel it has some underlying functionality, as they have a template in visio as well, but I can't figure it out.

So, what I'd like to do is have a workbook with say 100 worksheets. Each worksheet will have a person's bracket. Each person will write in all their picks. Their will be a master bracket where the actual winners will go, as the results are posted. When the master bracket is updated, Excel will flip through each worksheet, checking to see if the win in the master bracket matches the individual bracket. Points will be awarded or not.

Can that be done? I've also done a google search and can't get anymore help. I know that the web has multitudes of free versions, which I'd use, the only problem is that people would hesitate to register. doing it in excel, on the office system, there's no need to register, your cpu login takes care of authentication.

If Function, Sourround Value With Brackets
i have several large tables of numbers. For my purpose I have to compare each entry of the table with a certain value, no problem so far.

Now if the entry is lower than the certain value i want to have the table entry sorrounded by brackts e.g. 0.8 spould change to (0.8).

Usually i did this by right mouse -> format cell -> number -> user define -> "("0.0")" for each entry individually. Now im getting tired ;-)

Is it possible to implicate the formating of a value into an if function ?

Use Of Square Brackets In Vba 2003
My code works great on my computer but when I bring it to another computer it gives me errors. I think it has to do with my use of square brackets to reference cells. the error that comes up is

compile error:
can't find project or library

What I'm doin here is going to my template sheet then getting the info from different cells and then later using it somewhere else. in place of using range and selecting cell I am using square brackets to select a cell. it worked fine on my computer and was a lot less writing, here is a small part of my code

Formula Entered With { } Brackets
I have a formula in a spreadsheet that must be entered by selecting Command (Apple) and Return. This puts parentheses around the entire formula. Example: {=A1+B1}

I have it in a SUM IF formula: {=SUM(IF('Dollars'!$A$2:$A$2546=A116,IF('Dollars'!$B$2:$B$2546=B116,'Dollars'!$E$2:$E$2546)))}

If it's not entered this way, it will not work. You cannot simply hit return for the formula to work.

Since I did this so long ago (4 years), I cannot remember what it's called; why it has to be done that way and how to do the same thing in Windows Excel.

I am going through and reformatting them to read:

Is there cell format code or some way to do this quickly rather than going through each cell and deleting the spaces and ()?

Calculate Number In Brackets/Parenthesis
Is it possible to extract a number in brackets specifically from a cell, then increase it by 15%, and return the result back into the brackets.

For example the cell consists the following:
Mary (78)

so the aim is to get the 78 out for calculation, then change the content of the cell with the new result.

Or is there a macros that can be created for this?

Remove Numbers & Brackets In Parentheses
I tried to use the find and replace function to delete different numbers from different cells (all in one column) but the problem is that I want to delete different kind of numbers.

Let me give you an example:

Starting point:

Cell A1: Bookrunner: Barclays Capital(368.726m)
Cell A2: Bookrunner: DBS(368m)
Cell A3: Mandated Arranger: Commonwealth Bank of Australia (Singapore)(367.163m)
Cell A4: Mandated Arranger: DnB NOR ASA (Singapore)(367.163m)

I want to reach here:

Cell A1: Bookrunner: Barclays
Cell A2: Bookrunner: DBS
Cell A3: Mandated Arranger: Commonwealth Bank of Australia (Singapore)
Cell A4: Mandated Arranger: DnB NOR ASA (Singapore)

(I don’t want the information in “()” like “(Singapore)” to be deleted! Only the “()” which contains numbers)

I used the “find and replace” function to delete ever single number, but I think it’s a little unprofessional to do so!

Extract 2 digits to the right of a decimal when it ends in 0, AND keep it a value.

Ex: .69 .75 .50 .70 = 69 75 50 70.

Text to columns won't work because it has to calculate from other cells' data. This value is then used in an IF function.

SUM Or Lookup (extract The Sum Of Each Of The Sum Value For Each )
I am building a template which needs to pull values from an excel sheet that
will be copied and pasted into one of the worksheets in the template. These
values are always in the same columns but not always in the same row as the
length of the file varies. One of the main problems I am having is that there
these values are sums (located at the bottom of the table) but they do not
have any indicator in the first column (it is blank so I cannot use vlookup).
Also there may be multiple tables (each under the privious one) and in this
case I need to be able to extract the sum of each of the sum value for each

Also, I was thinking of taking another route. Instead of looking up the
already calculated sum values I was thinking there might be a possibility to
sum the values my self and pull that value for the columns needed into my
template. The first lign of each table begins with "Asgn" and ends with "End"
and I was wondering if there is a way to sum the values between (and
including) these two markers for the columns needed.
