How To Find Duplicated String Before A Character That Contains Specific Word

May 16, 2014

In column A, I have the following lines:

2014-05-15 02:08:43 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 02:31:37 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 02:37:19 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 02:37:20 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 03:07:19 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 15:01:37 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 15:04:46 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)

I would like to use conditional formatting to highlight cells which have the same first 16 characters (yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm) before the "@" AND that contains the words "CHANGE WORLD". Therefore, I'm looking for a formula I could include in the conditional formatting so I can easily find the "CHANGE WORLD" that occurred at the same time (minus the seconds, they may vary slightly).

Find String Of Text Plus Cell Index Color?

May 3, 2013

I am trying to come up with a macro that will search a range for a specific string of text plus Interior.ColorIndex = 4. The range can have the text in it multiple times but i only want the macro to fire the next line of it if the cell address also has that color. Is there a way that can be done? My code below stops after it finds its first occurrence of the string and moves on to the next lookup. How do i make it look for not only the value but the index color?

Find If Text Cell Contains A String Of Characters From Array In Different Workbook

Aug 12, 2011

I've scoured the internet for this answer and have not found a formula that works.

I have a list of domain names/URLs in column A of workbook 1:


I have a list of domain name extensions in workbook #2:


I want to determine if the cells in column A workbook one contain any of the strings in workbook 2 - note that I need to look at the string, not the entire cell in workbook one. If there is a match, true, if not, false for that cell within workbook one.

It's sort of a reverse array lookup with text. It seems that cross workbook and text is what causes the challenge.

Create Find Box Into Which Search String Inputs

Nov 9, 2011

I need the code to create a find box into which a search string is input. The code should find the string at a particular cell, then copies this cell and four cells to the right to a location in sheet 2 of the same workbook

The code runs but comes back with a runtime 424 error. I believe the issue is being caused by "nextCell" but I cant see why.

Sub FindStrings()
Dim firstCell, nextCell, stringToFind As String
' Show an input box and return the entry to a variable.
stringToFind = _
Application.InputBox("Enter J Number and Stage Number. For Example J1234 ST1", "Search String")
' Set an object variable to evaluate the Find command.

Find Copy And Paste All Entries Matching Search String On Mac PC

Feb 8, 2014

This follows on from my previous posting [URL] ..... which produced a solution using an ActiveX Combobox that unfortunately does not work on Mac PCs!

I tried to replace the ActiveX with a Form Control Combobox but could not make it work.

So I am trying to use the alternative of "find, copy and paste" the relevant information.

As shown on the attached 140207 FINDALL test.xlsm, I need to find all records containing whatever string is entered into the "Search" cell, and copy data form three columns onto the Entry sheet.

The User will then select whichever of the entries they want to use, which will populate the relevant cells.

Problem: The following Code is not recognising any of the data in the Column being searched.

Option Explicit
Dim ws As Worksheet, i As Integer, k As Integer, z As Integer, CL, myFind, CHOICE As Range, lr As String, lrG As String,

Formula To Find And Substitute A Word In Text If Condition Met

Aug 18, 2014

In cell A1, I have three possible text strings: (1) "change/s: changed the color green to red", (2) "change/s: changed the color from green to red, changed the size from big to small", or (3) "changed the color from red to green".

I need a formula that will look at a text string, and if there is a comma in the string, it finds the word "change/s" and substitutes it with "changes", if it finds no comma, it substitutes the word "change/s" to "change", and if the word "change/s" is not in the text string at all, it leaves that text string unchanged.

Find Text In A String

Jan 3, 2008

I have the following string of text and want to take out certain parts of it. Assume the string is in cell A1.

In cell B1 I want "Company ABC DEF"
In cell C1 I want "10.50%"
In cell D1 I want "12/13/2014"

Company ABC DEF (USD) 10.50% 12/13/2014

how the MID formulas work (as a bonus)? I used =MID(A1,FIND(")",A1,1)+2,45) and it returns "10.50% 12/13/2014".

So I see that that formula says start from 1 character after ")", count 2 over, and then put in the next 45 characters. How do I do an in between amount, and how do I just have it come from the LEFT but stop when it finds " ("

Excel 2011 :: Find Multiple Text Strings In Another Text String

Mar 8, 2013

How do I use an Excel formula to find which (if any) multiple sets, each of up to 50 words, exist in a series of rows of a spreadsheet - if set A has one or more words found in a searched cell.

A positive result will return a specific value in the designated result cell. If none of the words in Set A is found in the searched cell, the formulae will repeat the test for the words in Set B, and so on.

After all 50 sets of words have been tested, the formula will move to the next cell in the searched column.

New words will be added to the sets of words continually as required.

Multiple words within sets are included in double quotes. Within each set of words there will be some n-tuples of words (i.e. 24 adjacent words) that contain one or more of the words in the set, but for which the formula will be required to return a negative result. Example: Set A = word 1, word2, word 3, "word1 word2 word3". (The words within a set could also be each entered in separate columns, as opposed to all included in a single cell.) The single column of text to be searched is about 10,000 rows.

I am wanting to use the above in a spreadsheet that contains data downloaded from a series of bank accounts to automatically allocate items of expenditure to one of 20 or so different categories of expenditure.

The formula will search the description field to find words that are used in the in the downloaded files from the various accounts to describe each transaction.

If a word describing travel expenditure (e.g. hotel, "holiday inn" but not "holiday travel") is found in the description of an expenditure item - the item cost will be allocated to the TRAVEL EXPENDITURE column, which is one of 20 or so different categories of expenditure.

Happy to consider a different solution if the task can be done better a different way.

Tried using a combination of INDEX/SEARCH/IF in Excel, but was not able to get a correct result. PS I am using Excel 2011 for Mac - which does not allow macros, so the solution needs to be entirely formula based.

Find Number Within A Text String Using VBA

Sep 4, 2009

I have a list of English game results with the score and the soccers of the game.

As you can see in the excel, what Im trying to do is to find the time i.e which is the numbers in the field and display them seperately onto the cells beside. So what i need is to Find and extract these numbers 34,41,46,91 and paste them just beside cell on the list.

I can use formula but i can only display 1 number, so i think this might require a VBA script.Thanks in advance guys..

Find Text String In A Value Instead Of In A Formula

Jul 18, 2007

What formula can I use to search a range of cell values for a specific text string? My method is searching formulas instead, which is not what I want.

Background: I am developing a little test script for a project and I want to include some automatic validations to help make the job of the testers easier.

What I have set up so far:

1. Testers input numbers into specific fields M8 through M20.

2. Fields N8 through N20 automatically check fields M8 through M20 and compare those with what is contained in a range of hidden cells I set up in advance. A formula ensures that it reports "correct" or "incorrect" on a field-by-field basis, based on the comparison.

3. Cell O8 searches for the text string "incorrect" in cells N8 through N20. If that text string appears in any one of the cell values (not formulas), then O8 directs the tester to test again. If the text string "incorrect" does not appear, then cell O8 reports that the test was successful, and the tester can proceed to the next test (exact same setup repeats).

My only problem is in the formula used for the last step. I have tried a few different formulas I know in cell 08, but none are giving me the results I'm looking for. The closest I have come is a successful search and validation based on the string being in the formula instead of in the value of the given cell.

Find Text String Value Between Quotes

Sep 2, 2007

Formulae Solution prefered if possible--

Is it possible to extract the two text strings between the quotes, placing them in Col. C & D respectively, e.g.
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, " ANTI ", " ANTI-HERO ")
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "SEC9", "SECTOR 9")
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "LNGBRDC", "LONGBOARD COMPLETE")

--Col. C---------------Col.D
SEC9--------------- SECTOR 9

There are three types of scenarios-
1) Values enclosed in quotes that begin and end w/ spaces:
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, " ANTI ", " ANTI-HERO ")

2) Values enclosed in quotes that does not contain a leading space or trailing space:
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "SEC9", "SECTOR 9")

3) Values enclosed in quotes that have a space between itself:
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "LNGBRDC", "LONGBOARD COMPLETE")

Find And Replace A Value In A String Of Text

Jan 23, 2008

I am trying to be able to input a value in column A and the string of text in column B will be affected by the value that I put in Column A. And i want to be able to do this with multiple rows with multiple values. Example:

My string of text in column B remains the same until the value of Column A changes. The find/replace will overwrite the "" in the string. This is my string of text in Column B: "^cCHT;all;;t;g;F1;F1;;all;;t;g;F2;F2;;all;;"

A1 value = "ABC"
Resulting Text in B1 = "^cCHT;all;;t;g;F1;F1ABC;;all;;t;g;F2;F2ABC;;all;;"

A2 value = "XYZ"
Resulting Text in B2 = "^cCHT;all;;t;g;F1;F1XYZ;;all;;t;g;F2;F2XYZ;;all;;"

I know that I can accomplish this by creating a button but I was wondering if there is a more automated way like a formula in a cell or something.

Text String (A1)

Welcome to Jake's Car Accessories website. We have all of your car accessory needs including car covers, truck covers, custom car grills and other car accessories.

How To Find Exact Text String Match

Jun 16, 2014

In the four rows of text below I'm trying to match each gas stick to its corresponding gasline.

I think I can count over to "GAS STICK" and get the number. <15> From that point I can count over to "," (comma) and get that number. <26> So the gas stick will be between the first number and one less than the second number. <GAS STICK 1>

I need completing this code to place a the line or stick number in a cell B of the same row. Column A would have the description and column B of the same row would either be "1" or "11" respectively. Column C would be the shortened description (GAS STICK 1).
