Find Specific Text In Cell That Matches Range Then Display Specific Text?

Aug 5, 2013

I'm trying to find vehicle make and model in a cell containing a lot of text and then display that in the formula cell. For example if A1 is a paragraph that contains somewhere within it "Ford" & "Ranger". I want B1 to display "Ford" and C1 to display "Ranger". I have a list of vehicles makes (column A) and models (column B) on a seperate sheet.

If Cell Contains Certain Text And Certain Text Then Return Predefined Text?

Apr 10, 2013

I'm trying to get something like - If a cell contains certain text AND certain text then display set text OR If a cell contain certain text AND certain text then display set text.

For example:
Vauxhall Corsa 1.5Litre Petrol = vauxhall corsa petrol
Vauxhall Corsa 1.5Litre Deisel = vauxhall corsa Deisel
Vauxhall Nova 1 litre Petrol = vauxhall nova petrol

So it the formula is effectively searching for the car type and the fuel type and then returning the relevant set text. So far I'ver only been able to find IF functions criteria to identify one feature of the text.

I'm thinking it's got to be variation on =IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("Vauxhall Corsa",A1)),"Vauxhall Corsa Petrol") but there should be something else in there like =IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("Vauxhall Corsa"&"Petrol",A1)),"Vauxhall Corsa Petrol")

I know this is wrong but just trying illustrate my thinking. I need it to pick up vauxhall corsa AND petrol. I understand that I would have to stick a lot of IF functions together in a string, but that is fine as long as I can ask it to pick certain text AND certain text within a cell.

Excel 2003 :: Take Specific Text From Cell And Copy It In New One (Text And / Or Words Position Varies)

Jan 17, 2013

I'm having a 6000+ records, (contacts DB) exported in Excel 2003 format from MS Outlook.

Except the "First" and "LastName", all other contact elements are in the field "Notes" (which is the BZ column according to the exported outlook layout) multiplied by 6469 (records in total)

Useful information are included !!!

I'll give an example of a record...

Column: BZ, Row: 543 says --> "2110000000-6989000000, 1TOK_TER:17-11-010(25 DAYS LESS),
KATERINA 25 (MANTAS KALNNNNN_HYPERTENSION)1000-150, W:95_105, , HR THE 16wks_US NEFRON OK,
NT OK_B EPIP OK(GOLF BALL)_KAMPILI ORIAKI(DIAITA)_DOPPLER OK, O+,TEST OK(TOX_), , , , , , "

Now, I want every time to take the part of the text says "TER:something..." (part of which is date, but not every time with the known format dd-mm-yyyy, as you see here is yyy, followed by something else, with parenthesis here and maybe more data) and copy it in a new cell..., e.g:CO Column, same Row...

Above and every field which by the way is formatted as General (and it is text mainly) are made by merging older excel fields where data laid here and there, that's why you see the commas...with the method of a module with the following code:

Function MyMerge(Rng As Range)
For Each Cell In Rng
Temp = Temp & Cell.Value & ", "
Next Cell
Temp = Mid(Temp, 1, Len(Temp) - 2)
MyMerge = Temp
End Function

Note1:Records with the above string (TER:dd-mm-yyy) are 771 from 6469.
Note2: As an alternative solution I can see an extraction of the TER:dd-mm-yyy string and the copy in a new place, like the:CO Column, same Row...

Excel 2013 :: Check Cell For Text And Return Corresponding Text In Adjacent Cell?

Jan 28, 2014

I have 2 tabs in a 2013 workbook. Inventory Receipts and lookups. One of the Data verification lookups I have is a drop down list in each cell in Column B (eg: Cat, Dog, Mouse) In the lookups tab I have another cell range containing the sounds (eg: Meow, Bark, Squeak).

What I am trying to acheive is, if B2 contains Cat, then return Meow in B3, if B2 contains Dog then return bark in b3 and if B2 contains Mouse return squeak in B3. Ideally I would like the formula to return the text from my lookup sheet (eg: 'Lookups'!C2,'Lookups'!C3,'Lookups'!C4). So depending on which option they choose from my animal drop down list .. the correct noise would automatically fill in.

Specific Text In Column And Then Imputing That Text In A Cell?

Feb 3, 2014

So I have a column that will have the same text in all of the cells contained within it except for one cell. Is there a formula that I can use that will automatically find and transpose the text of the one cell that is unique out of the column? I was thinking of an IF function, but the column could be up to 60 cells in length.

Highlight Specific Text Within A Cell Of Other Text

This is the text:

Take 5 PPE Swabs per Area, Both Shifts. Test various equipment - hands, aprons, sleeves, hats, etc.

What I need is for "Take 5 PPE Swabs per Area, Both Shifts." to be bold and highlighted in gray, but none of the other text. Conditional formatting highlights the entire cell, which won't work.

Macro To Only Show Rows That Contain Specific Text/Chinese Text Issue In Visual Basic ( 2007)

Jun 23, 2009

I want to create 3 command buttons (active X) on a worksheet to toggle between showing rows which only contain the below text in column L (range L9:L30) and showing all rows containg the options (However, I also have some blank rows in this range and i always want them to remain hidden.)

My text options are:

High
Medium
Low

The text arrives in the cells via a VLOOKUP

Is the chinese text a problem? i can't type it into VB.

I've been using the following macro to hide and unhide rows with a command button in the same sheet:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Toggle_Hide_Unhide
End Sub

Sub Toggle_Hide_Unhide()
Dim rngCell As Range
Dim TakeAction As Boolean

If ActiveSheet.CommandButton1.Caption = "Hide" Then
TakeAction = True
ActiveSheet.CommandButton1.Caption = "UnHide"
Else
TakeAction = False
ActiveSheet.CommandButton1.Caption = "Hide"
End If

For Each rngCell In ActiveSheet.Range("I9:I30")
With rngCell
If .Value = 2 Then .EntireRow.Hidden = TakeAction
End With
Next rngCell
End Sub

I am trying to pull titles out of a text string but its quite difficult because of how the data was originally inputted. I need titles that appear in the following different formats

These titles were not inputted consistently and it could show up in the middle or at the beginning. I have attached a sample of the data that i am working with and a sample formula that i was trying to use to obtain my information. The formula that i have is a nested formula of find and mid formula that searches for the text within " ".

Formula To Find Specific Text And Replace With Alternate Text?

Mar 4, 2014

I have a worksheet with several columns. I need a formula to search column D only and each time a specific location is identified to replace that location with alternate text. Example (ORIGNAL TEXT):

Column Dtext to text help.xlsx
BIRD
FISH
DOG
BAT
BUG

I need to search that listing and each time the word BIRD is mentioned have it replaced with FEATHERS and each time DOG is listed have it replaced with TAILS Final result would look like:

FEATHERS
FISH
TAILS
BAT
BUG

All other text should stay the same and replacement text should appear in the cell of the text it is replacing. This is a sheet used by multiple people several times a day and so the Find/Replace option really won't work.

Have working on this for at least 6 months and it just isn't going to happen for me. I thought I could use a Conditional format, but that is producing no results either.

Compare Multiple Text Cells To One String Of Text And Return Specified Value

May 12, 2012

I have a dataset of shifts and want to compare each shift that needs to be filled to a list of requests for time off (vacation, etc).

For one cell the code is: =IF(ISERROR(SEARCH(B1, A1), 0,1)

Where A1 is the column of requests in comma delimited forme (ie: "AB,CD,EF").

Where B1 is the column containing the person assigned to shift 1 (ie: "AB")

In this case, would return a "1" as no error was returned, as AB was found in the list. Here "1" would represent a schedule conflict.

Without creating many cells for each shift- there are 20 shifts- can I create an array or string together this type of "SEARCH" function?

Return Text From A Mixed Text/value 3d Array Result

Dec 2, 2009

I've been searching the forums and web trying to figure out how to extract a text value from a 3D array result, to no avail or well beyond my understanding.

I've attached a file which shows an abbreviated version of the search (from the original 49 col x 400 row, which shows the name to date array which can return a sum.

What I'm looking to do is identify within this array result if there has been a text entry, and return the text as opposed to a sum of the remaining values. This is essentially a double check to make certain that there aren't hours scheduled when other events such as vac/loa/etc are also booked.

Partial Text Lookup In Text String And Return

Mar 15, 2007

Cell H1 has a variable string of references for eg
"FI570783AQ3516346EQ3516346FXVB123456"

I want to return the reference beginiing with "FXVA" so it would ignore the rest and only return FXVB123456 - this should always be 10 characters.

Just to add another complication to the mix, there may be 2 "FXVA" references in the string and i want to get both (these can be in the same string so FXVB123456FXEL123456 - but this might not happen regularly.

Return Yes If Text Is Found Within A Cell

Dec 24, 2013

I currently have the below formula to search for text of interest (A1) within each cell of a column (B6:B30).

=IF(ISERROR(MATCH(A1,$B$6:$B$30,0)),"NO","YES")

The formula works perfectly if there is only a single value in the cells. But not so well when the cell has multiple values separated by a comma.

For example:

Column B

X
Y
Z
T, X, Y, Z

It would return a "Yes" for X, Y, and Z because those are found individually. However, T will appear as a "No", because it is found within a cell that is separated by commas.
