## Lookup Function: Compare Every Part In The All Parts Worksheet To See If The Part Number Exists On The Active Parts Sheet

Dec 10, 2008

I have a spreadsheet with 2 worksheets. On the first "active parts" I have a list of active part numbers and on the second "All Parts" I have all of the parts available.

I want to compare every part in the All Parts worksheet to see if the part number exists on the Active Parts sheet - if it's there, I would like it to return the value "Active" in column B in All Parts. I have a formula in column B in All Parts that seems to work for the first few, but as soon as it finds one that is active, the rest of the cells below all return "Active".

## Remove First Part Of String Of Text And Keep The Second Part?

Feb 12, 2014

Is there any way to remove the first part of a string of text in a cell and save the second part?

The first part of the text string is a team code that has a variable number of numbers, capital letters and sometimes spaces. The second part of the text string is a variable number of words in a team name that all start with a capital letter and have lower case letters. Every line has a different team code and team name.

The original spreadsheet also has a column with just team code. Is there a way of using this column to "subtract" the team code from the text string to just leave the team name?

## Delete Row If Cell Contains Certain Text As Part Of Text String?

May 15, 2014

I have a column of data with letters in each cell, no numerical, only alpha. Now, some of those cells contain the letters "adj sub" as part of the text string in each cell. "Adj sub" is always at the beginning of the text string. As an example, a cell will look like this - "adj sub mhm". I want to delete rows whose cell description does not contain "adj sub" as part of the text in the cell.

## Replace Part Of Longer Function

Mar 14, 2014

I am working with a lot of data and have been making a table of statistical analysis for several rock types. I have it worked out to where i can filter the data and with the use of a bunch of IF functions, below, and it keeps everything the way I want.

{=MAX(IF(\$H\$2:\$H\$22="sedimentary rocks",\$W\$2:\$W\$22))}

The problem is I have to introduce new rock types, but if I just copy the formulas over i then have to go through hundreds of cells and switch sedimentary rocks to volcanic or whatever new class i have.

How this can be done faster. Maybe some way to say "find "text" within this range and replace" i can do it for actual values but when its embedded in a function im not sure.

Mar 25, 2008

I want to create a user defined function to search a column of data for a part number.

If it exists I want to have a the UDf returna "fail" otherwise "pass"

Here is the code I was trying to use

ws = Worksheets("Defects")
c = ""
With ws.Range("a1:a9999")
Set c = .Find(SN, LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole)

Else
firstpass = "Fail"
End If

End Function

This function only returns a "#value" and I don't quite know how to troubleshoot it.

Jun 18, 2009

I am trying to do a vlookup and am having soem issues. I have data like this in the cell i am using as the reference: "60030 - COLUMBUS, OH". The first column of the range I am searching would have "60030" in it. What i need to know is how do I get the vlookup to just reference the first 5 digits in the reference cell? As you can see by the formula below, I set the logical value to true hoping that it would find the closest value, but it did not work. =VLOOKUP(A7,sdoalign,3,TRUE)

## VLOOKUP To Match Only Part Of The Text

Feb 5, 2010

Please help me get VLOOKUP to match only part of the text. I have the following situation:

In "sheet1":
___A________________B______C
1__USER3 (12346ar)___0______411 PCS
3__USER5 (456ff)______0______112 PCS
4__USER8 (1246ew)____0______515 PCS

In "sheet2":
___A_________B________C______D
1__USER8____0_________0______=VLOOKUP(A1,'SHEET1'!\$A:\$C,3,0)*5

In "sheet2" , D1 I'll get #N/A if I do not type the complete name ( USER8 (1246ew) ). Is there a way to ignore this part " (1246ew)" and match only the name of the user?

Also when matching "515 PCS" can it automatically remove the " PCS" part so I can use only the number to make calculations?

## VBA To Delete Part Of Text String

Aug 15, 2014

I am trying to delete part of a text string for a range of cells. The code I have so far deletes the first set of letters but is looking in every cell in the range.

Ideally I would like it to only look in the cells of col B where there is data then only delete the first 10 letters if the cell begins with "Service ID"

Sub DeleteServiceID()
Dim c As Range
For Each c In Range("B1:B1000")
c.Value = Right(c.Value, 10)
Next c
End Sub

## Extracting Part Of Text From One Cell To Another

Aug 20, 2006

I have a column of cells with similar to the following text.

First Marine Avenue 18 1303 11 1

There will always be a final 4 groups of text numbers, each with a space
between, but each having different number of numbers (this particular
sequence has 2,4,2,1 - but others may be different, but always 4 groups)

The true text ( a series of Road names are potentiaaly all different, having
a sequence of words that may be up to 5 words long before the numbers start)

I need to extract the 4 groups of numbers into seperate cells, leaving the
Road name text in a singe cell. I would then have a table of 5 columns, the
first the Road text, and the next 4 columns being the group of numbers, which
I would then format as numbers.

## Removing Part Of Text From A String

Feb 11, 2013

I belong to a fantasy cycling league and after every race, I copy the race results to award each rider their points for the day. The site I visit most frequently lists the riders results in this format:

1. Alberto Contador (Spa) Team Sax Bank Tinkoff 4:05:00
2. Lance Armstrong (USA) Team Livestrong etc... 4:06:00

I usually copy the results to my spreadsheet then calculate each riders points.

The'results end up looking like this in Excel:

1. Alberto Contador (Spa) Team Sax Bank Tinkoff 4:05:00
2. Lance Armstrong (USA) Team Livestrong 4:06:00

So, the data ends up in 3 cells. The position in one cell, the rider and their nationality and their team in another, and the time of arrival in another cell

Is there a way in Excel where I can get rid of or delete all the data after a rider's name?

I usually end up pasting the rider information to Word, then replacing the (***) with a tab symbol, then pasting back to Excel and get rid of the data that's after the name by deleting the cells to which that data was transferred.

Is there an easier way to do this in Excel, or a macro I can create?...

## Remove Part Of Text From Cells

Aug 19, 2006

I have a simple sentence in cells C3, D3 and E3. The sentence in C3 is:
Find Airfare to Chicago, Airline Tickets to Chicago, and More | XXXXXXXXX®

D3 contains: XXXXXXXXX highlights outstanding airfares to Chicago from quality airlines and agencies. E3 contains my list of keywords: Chicago Flights, Cheap Flights to Chicago, Cheap Chicago airline tickets, chicago flight, chicago airfare, chicago airline ticket, chicago airline tickets

The XXXXXXXXX in the C&D cells is the client name which I had to blank out in order to post here. I wasn't sure if you guys would need to know exactly how many characters there are in each cell. In column B3 is the name of the city, in this case the city is Chicago. I have 8000 destinations so I need a formula that will take the city (or any information) in the B column and replace that in the C, D and E columns in the appropriate place. I've attached a small, representative file to demonstrate.

## To Bold A Part Of The Cell Text

Apr 8, 2007

I am creating a sheet with the cell information coming from different cells. I want to bold and/or underline a part of the cell to add clarity.

For e.g.
Cell A1 = "Trans X" (Name of the transaction);
Cell B1 = "System Y" (System where the transaction exists)
Cell C1 = "Type Z" (Type of transaction)

I want to create a cell which has
Newsheet.Cell (x,y) =
"Name: Trans X
System: System Y
Type: Type Z"

I created the String by reading and concatenating the values, but I am not sure how to add the formatting to a part of the string.

## Join Text & Format Part

May 15, 2007

I am trying to reference text and another document. The text I want is " stock option expense negatively impacted 1Q:07 by:" and the number i want it to bring back is currently in the model as a percentage. However I would like to bring it back in basis points which would be the percentage times 10,000. So if its in the model as 0.4%, I'd like to bring it back as 40 bps. Here is the formula I am using that is insufficient.

="Stock option expense negatively impacted 1Q:07 by: " & TEXT([FOSL2.xls]QTR!\$BK\$34,"0") & " bps."
