How To Remove A Leading Zero From Every Cell In An Entire Column

Jul 7, 2008

how to write code that would remove a leading zero (if there is a leading zero) from each cell in a column that looks like this:

05-15975
05-35473
07-45975
56-48993
56-49486

I know that using regular expressions would work but I don't know how to implement this. The column will always be column 'C' in my spreadsheets. I already have other code which is executed when I click a 'Process' button that relies on this column having no leading zeroes for it to work, hence I need to add in code that will make this change.

Remove Leading And Trailing Spaces In A Cell?

Dec 5, 2013

Any easy way to remove all spaces from a cell, both leading and trailing? I find it hard to believe that Excel doesn't have this functionality. I don't particulary want to write a VBA script since I have never done it but if that's the only way, I'd love to know how to write it. I have looked everywhere but obviously not in the right places.

Remove Leading Apostrophe From Numbers

Nov 23, 2006

I receive a lot of spreadsheets which contain numerical data where each cell has been forced to be text by a leading apostrophe.

how to strip the apostrophe out so I can process the data, please?
I know the apostrophe is a hidden character, so I can't use Find & Replace, and using MID or RIGHT doesn't seem to work, either, even if I Copy and Paste Special as Values.

Is there an alternative to manually editing every single cell?

Remove Leading Apostrophe From Text And Numbers

Sep 26, 2007

I searched through some pages of old threads but could not find specifically one solution for performing the subject task on text strings in cells.

I have a lot of Excel files which contain both numerical data and text strings where each cell has been forced to have a leading apostrophe appended to the left side of the text strings and numbers.

How can I strip the leading apostrophe out?

I know the apostrophe is a hidden character, so I can't use Find & Replace.

I would like to figure out some VBA so that I could build this into and automate this via a macro I'm working on.

Is there a way to comprehensively do this for all cells containing text and numbers in a worksheet?

Remove Leading Space From Multiple Cells

Oct 24, 2005

I need to delete a leading space from multiple cells, 200 or more. The leading space is in front of text that is often more than one word so I can't just copy into Word and do a find and replace on the spaces.

I looked in many places and found out about the Trim function but when I tried it, it didn't work for me. I created a column next to the column that I want to remove the leading spaces from.

Then I put =TRIM(B2) in the first cell, =TRIM (B3) in the next one, etc. But all it did was put the exact same thing as before (with the leading space still in it) in that column?

Search For & Remove Leading Or Trailing Spaces

Sep 1, 2008

I wrote a tool that people at work use. They initially need to paste in a bunch of customer locations with Address, City, State, Zip, etc. Sometimes the Users have "bad input" data that has non-breaking spaces, multiple space between words, or leading and trailing spaces and nonbreaking spaces. I have code to get rid of all of those problems. However, the Users often use their data for other important functions at work. So I want to give them a message to let them know that their Original Data is "bad".

So instead of just "Fix" . . . I want to "Report the problem", then "Fix". I need to identify exactly what problem was found - not just tell the User that their data is bad.

I wrote a simple Search routine with error handling that identifies 2 of the 4 cases and notifies the User:
Case 1) ASCII 160 (non-breaking space, HTML &nbsp
Case 2) multiple spaces (2 or more consecutive spaces)
Case 3) Leading or Trailing Spaces (ASCII 032)
Case 4 Leading or Trailing non-breaking spaces (ASCII 160, which is HTML &nbsp)

I cannot quite figure out how to find the 3rd and 4th Cases. If anyone can help me with Case 4 especially, then I can probably do the same thing for Case 3.

I think it will work to somehow use this idea - the code is not even real code but it is just conceptual:
RIGHT(CellReference, 1) = Char(160) or Char(032)
LEFT(CellReference, 1) = Char(160) or Char(032)

Anyway, here is what I have so far . . .

Sub NotifyBadInput
ErrorFlag = False
Cells.Select ' select entire worksheet

' BAD INPUT 1 - lLook for any occurence of ASCII 160 (non-breaking space, HTML &nbsp)
' and Notify the User if any of his Input cells contain &nbsp's
On Error Goto errormsg1
Selection.Find(What:="", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt _
:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _
False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

Remove Leading Single Quote From Text Cells

Oct 9, 2009

I am a SAS programmer and often use SAS Proc Export to dump data to Excel. Sometimes the data is an Excel formula, e.g.
=hyperlink("#Sheet1!r1c1","click here")

Because the data is text, what get's put in the cell is '=HYPERLINK("#Sheet1!r1c1","click here") (note leading single quote).

I cannot use the replace function to edit them out, so must hand edit each one out -tedious at best.

Create Range For Entire Column From A Cell?

Jan 7, 2014

I have this code:

Modules --> Module1:

Code:
Function Find(strSearch As String) As Range
Dim aCell As Range
Set aCell = ActiveSheet.Rows(1).Find(What:=strSearch, LookIn:=xlValues, _

[Code]....

I've walked this through the debugger. The Find function is finding the "Applicable" column fine (column 2). But how do I convert the aCell object to a range so that Intersect will be true, and will uppercase the cell value that was updated? If I were hardcoding this, I would return Range("B:B").

Update Entire Column Of Cell References At Once?

I'm working on a workbook where I'm linking data from a bunch of spreadsheets to a summary page. I have the first column (A) set up. I dragged the data across several more columns. Now I need to change reference to the tab in each column. Is there a quick way to do this without copying and pasting the tab name into each row (about 30 rows)?

(Each column represents a tab, the rows are the same type of data in every tab.)

I know how to write a loop that cycles through all of the columns until it finds today's date and then modify the column's properties, I was wondering if there was an easier way to do it. Also, I want the highlighting to be temporary meaning it should not save.

Delete Entire Row If Cell In Column Starts With Asterisk

May 9, 2008

I'm using the following code to delete rows that I don't want to include and I've ran into some more things that need to be deleted...

For lLoop = RngCol.Rows.Count To 2 Step -1
Select Case RngCol(lLoop, 1)
Case " Date:", "Skill:", "Agent Name", "~*", "*Train*"
RngCol(lLoop, 1).EntireRow.Delete
End Select
Next lLoop

An example of "~*" would be: ***SICARII***
An example of "*Train*" would be: Ozgrid Train1

It's not recognizing these new cases. Do I have to utilize FIND? (since CTRL+F does work with the given cases)

Currently use this macro (see below) but occasionally I have more rows than 842. I could increase to 10000 and this would work but looking for a more automated macro that will automatically remove duplicates from all rows i.e. a macro that works out all rows.

Sub copyTab()
Cells.Select
Selection.Copy
Sheets("filtered_data").Select
Range("A1").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
Columns("A:A").Select
Application.CutCopyMode = False
ActiveSheet.Range("$A$1:$J$842").RemoveDuplicates Columns:=1, Header:=xlYes
End Sub
