How To Split Texts Into Words (collecting Word And Compounds)
Jan 10, 2008
i have wordlists which i would like to enhance through texts. For that purpose i need a macro which reads a text and splitts it into words and put the words into three columns. Lets assume the column where the words are supposed to be put is columns A,C and E. The column A should contain single words containing no spaces from Text, column C should contain compound words which have one space between them and in column E those compounds which have two spaces. Now i will put my existing wordlist in column G before i start splitting texts. The macro should put only those words from text into column A,C and E which dont already exist in columns A,B,C,D,E,F and G. In Column B i will place the corrected or checked words from column A. In column D i will type the corrections and checked versions of those compunds existing in column C. And the column F will contain the compound words which are corrected and checked from Column E.
Column A--> single words splitted from text through macro (containing no spaces)
Column B--> corrected and checked versions of words from column A through user
Column C--> compound words containing one space splitted from text through macro (for example:"etwas möchten" or "do something")
Column D-->corrected version of C through user
Column E-->compound words containing two space splitted from text through macro (for example:"sich uerberzeugen lassen" or "down in dumps")
Column F-->corrected E
Column G--> existing dictionary wordlist through user
Signes like ".", ":",";", "/" or quotation signe itself should be seen as seperator. And the words or compounds splitted from the text should not contain these signs.
The text will be put in another sheet in the same excel file. Lets call that sheet "text". The macro should search for words through whole sheet ignoring empty cells or columns.
None of the columns should be filtered or ordered. The columns shound not be deleted as well. That way the user wont have to correct the same word each time cus the corrected as well as the original words will be there.
A thread with similar purpose was made sent by AdamDay as well, where rylo has posted a good solution already.
Part I... I got the answer 1987, and now I want Excel to take the numbers out and display... 1 in one box then i set + in the next, then 9 in the 3ed. box, next box +, then 8, then +, then 7 in the last so that i can have Excel make a SUM of it all to 25.
How do I split 1987 and put the numbers in different boxes?
Part II... I want to make A=1 B=2... all the way up to 9, then start over again with J=1 K=2... up to 9 again and then over again.
So that if I write my name it comes out as a value of 14 (Odd = O=6 D=4 D=4 =14)
(AJSØ=1 BKTÅ=2 CLU=3 DMV=4 ENW=5 FOX=6 GPY=7 HQZ=8 IRÆ=9, It's the Norwegian alphabet, that's why there are some extra letters)
So how do I set up my Excel so that is ANY name is typed in I can get it out into a number from the values assign?
I have some data that is imported, it's about 25,000-30,000 characters and 2,300- 3,500 words, it all comes in as one cell, A1, if I do a text to column on it I will loose everything past column IV. Is there anyway a macro can take the data and put each word in a cell by its self starting in A2? The words a have a space between them.
I have huge columns of data that can only be 30 characters long. I want to use a formula to split the column into two. The original column will have a character limit of 30, and should not cut words in half. If the Length will be more than 30 while including the entire last word of the cell, that word should be the first displayed in adjacent cell in the 2nd column.
The 2nd column can be any length.
I usually use a Text to Columns method, but dont know how to make it not cut off the words.
I am suffering with split a long descriptions into 3 cells with criteria 1st cell not more than 30 characters, 2nd cell not more than characters and 3rd cell will locate the remaining characters there. I think this is quite easy if I use LEN/MID/RIGHT/LEFT formula. However, I wish the formula will smart enough to split word by word. refer to example below:-
"My lecturer replied, that i really did very bad in final, nothing's gonna change my plan."
If I use left(A1,30) formula, the result is "My lecturer replied, that i re"however, the word "really" is cut half way. I am finding the formula that split description to not more than 30 characters and won't cut my string and become incomplete word. Expected result should be 1st cell "My lecturer replied, that i", then "really did very bad in final," at 2nd cell.
I would like to do a text split for the name only in cells where contains the word "Name". For example: Name A&A Enterprize
Text split function for it is =MID(A1,FIND(" ",A1)+1,255) so it only recognizes A&A Enterprize.
How would I add an IF, Then function (If the any cell contains the word Name, apply the text split function, for cells don't have the word Name, just leave it blank) if i have to do this for a large data file so i dont have to copy this function for every cell that contains the word Name.
Below code is for splliting text file into multiple excel worksheet. I want to modify it to splitting text file into different msword documents in folder. Is it possible to change the code
'Dimension Variables Dim ResultStr As String Dim FileName As String Dim FileNum As Integer Dim Counter As Double 'Ask User for File's Name FileName = InputBox("Please enter the Text File's name, e.g. test.txt")
I have data in following order and wanted to split particular word from that.
for example : -
In Cell A1 i have address like N/A 12A, carbon court OSBORNE PARK WA 6017. I wanted to Split city name OSBORNE PARK & Post Code 6017 from that entire address in seperate cloumn. Like in cell A2 i want city name & in Cell A3 want Post code.
I have a list of words some Title cased, and some camelCased. Each cell contains one word. I need to write a macro which if encounters a cell with camelcased word like "ExcelMacros" or "excelMacros" would add new row and add "excel" and "macro" to their own cells. Is looping each cell for the character code the way to solve this problem or is there a better way?

and I'd like to use a couple of formulas in the two columns to the right of this data 1st column:a formula to obtain the number of words in a cell 2nd column:a formula to extract the last n words from a cell (ex. the last 2 words)
so that the columns would have as their results 6 west unrulu 7 #1234 easrlr
I have a key-word, and I need to search a 90,000 words in a range where i should find several words that have 2, 3 or 4 letters of the first letter of the key-word, then find several words that have 2, 3 or 4 letters of the second letter of the key-word,
Is there a way of counting how many rows have cells containing a specific word. Some rows will have multiple cells with the word in and some will have none. I only want a count of the number of rows and not the number of times the word appears. How can i acheive this with VBA?
how to accomplish more work quickly is proving difficult. I am making a word cloud of survey responses for my boss and he doesn't like to see similar words in the cloud (like Ease and Easy or even Fast and Quick). I have several hundred of these responses that are open ended answers that say one or many of these terms. Any way I can separate all the words and have them in one neat column? If I can get to that point, replacing those words will be simple enough.
So I have a cell with multiple words in A1. I want to check for the word "red" in A1 and if red exists return a value of "red" in B2, IF "red" is not found then search for "blue", if "blue" exists return a value of "blue" in B2, if "blue" is not found is not found then search for "green", if "green" exists then return "green" in B2, if none exist then return value of "none"
Looking to find 1 of 2 words in a cell in column B and return the word found in the same row in column E. This seemed easy but I am not having any luck.
the cells in column B have several words in them but I am looking for 2 specific words "PLAT" and "ORIG". If the word is not in the cell, it should show a blank cell in column E in the same row, otherwise one of the 2 words should be in that row in column E. A VBA loop would be ideal but a formula that can do it might work as well.
What I am looking to do is pull all the data of clients with assets under $2million into another tab. How can I do this without copying and pasting? I am looking for either a macro or some kind of formula that will search the entire data dump and pull in just the clients I need without leaving any rows blank.
I want to be able to lookup if anywhere in a cell contains a word from a list of words, and then provides an output.
Column G: VAT payment HMRC payment Pay VAT
I have a table on the side that shows: Column Y Column Z VATHMRC HMRC HMRC
ie. If anything in column G matches one of the words in Column Y, then output the Column Z. I have use a Vlookup that works for the first two, as VAT is the first thing, but dont know how to make it work if the key word is in the middle of the cell.
These names are in Column A. I want to split the first and last name into Column A and Column B of my spreadsheet. I Usually copy row 1 to a txt file then import with "space" as my delimiter. I basically want an automated method of doing this.
