# If Statement With Alpha Characters

Apr 24, 2009

Attached spreadsheet - the cell highlighted in yellow.
This is the formula I currently have, but it isn't giving me the results I am looking for:
=IF(TYPESVC="CompanyX", COUNT(Companies!I:I), " ")

Basically, IF the Companies tab, last column has 'CompanyX' written in it - then I want to count the number of responses provided in the Q2N column.

Same formula would be copied over to the other cells to the right as well (for Q5, Q6, Q7, etc.)

## Sum A Column Based On Alpha Characters

Mar 6, 2007

I have columns and rows that are populated with one of three letters: P, S, & T. At the bottom of the column and at the end of the row, i'd like to assign a numeric score to the entire column/row that is based on converting the characters to a numeric eqivelant. P = 3, S = 2 and T = 1. I'm guess a case statement would be used, but not too sure here. So, I'd need the code behind the worksheet as well as the formula(s) used for the score. I've attached an example.

## Capture Alpha Characters Entered Into A Textbox

Jul 24, 2009

I am trying to capture alpha characters entered into a textbox. If a character is (something) then a variable is (something).

## Absolute Cell Reference :: Alpha Characters To Increment

Nov 3, 2009

I've got a worksheet here that i need to update every week. The problem i'm having is that i have a table of values that's drawing values in from another larger table. For example in B9 the cell is referenceing the I2 cell in another sheet. When i pull down the formula in B9 i want the cell below to reference J2 and so on. In other words, I only want the alpha characters to increment. Tried messing around with dollar signs but it doesn't seem to be doing what i want.

## Sort Column Of Number &amp; Numbers With Alpha Characters Attached

Jan 7, 2010

Have a spreadsheet that contains a column of 3 digit numbers as well as 3 digit numbers with 2 trailing alpha characters.

Example:

376
377
421
376AB
376XY
377NC
421GQ
421EF

Need to sort by this column, but, with the parameter of sorting first by the numeric only, and then by numeric with alphas. So, the above list would look like this sorted properly:

376
376AB
376XY
377
377NC
421
421EF
421GQ

## Remove Non-alpha Characters From Alphanumerics With Option To Remove Numbers

Aug 8, 2009

I have found a very useful UDF for removing non-alpha characters from strings. (See below, Credit for posting to Stanley D Grom - Ozgrid post �Removing Non-alpha Characters From Text�).

Option Explicit

Private Function RemoveCharacters(InString As String) As String
Dim intLoopCounter As Integer
Dim intStringLength As Integer
Dim intASCIIVal As Integer
intStringLength = Len(InString)
InString = LCase(InString)
For intLoopCounter = 1 To intStringLength
intASCIIVal = Asc(Mid(InString, intLoopCounter, 1))
If intASCIIVal >= 97 And intASCIIVal <= 122 Then
RemoveCharacters = RemoveCharacters + Mid(InString, intLoopCounter, 1)
End If
Next intLoopCounter
End Function

Two requests:

1. Could the UDF be modified such that any part of a string contained within brackets is also removed (e.g. "NLGA High Street (West-Enfield), EN6" becomes "nlgahighstreeten")?

2. Can an argument be added to the format of the UDF, such that numbers (0 to 9) are either included or excluded (e.g. RemoveCharacters(A1,1) where the argument �1� would include any numbers (0 to 9), so "NLGA2003 High Street (West-Enfield), EN6" becomes "nlga2003highstreeten6")? �blank�or �0�would exclude these numbers, i.e. would return "nlgahighstreeten"

## "Masking" Out Non Alpha Characters From A String

Jul 20, 2009

I am comparing to columns of data from MS Project using Excel. In one column are the resource names for the project tasks. In addition to the names are the designations for % utilized. So the column's data will look like this:

John Jones[15%],Mary Smith, Fred Arguello[240%].

I want to compare this column with another resource names column which will never have utilization values - only the names.

In order to do that I need to "mask" the non alpha characters out of the first string.

## Selecting Only Alpha Characters From Cell 1 And Merge Another Cell?

Sep 28, 2013

I have an index of 80,000 names from an index. Some names appear in multiple volumes and on multiple pages within a volume. While the name is the same, they are different people. The Roman numeral is the volume and the numeric is the page number.

Example of original data: Joe Shmoe V-225, 310 VIII-22, 86, 110

I have separated the data into separate columns. Now I have:

Col 1 Col 2 Col 3 Col 4 Col 5 Col 6
Joe Shmoe V-225 310 VIII-22 86 110

At this point, I want to combine the Roman numeral in Col 2 with Col 3 and 4 and combine the Roman numeral in Col 4 with Col 5 and 6.

There are way too many records for me to manually enter the Roman numeral where missing.

## Using Wildcard Characters In IF -THEN Statement

Oct 22, 2007

I'm trying to create 2 separate data sets based on year (06 vs. 07). To do so, I created a column and created an if then statement that populates with Yes If the date value is "like" 2006". Excel didn't like the ? or asterik. Is there some other syntax that will accomplish.

While I open to other approaches for filtering these 2 data sets, Ive been wondering for awhile about excel and wildcard logic.

## If Statement Numeric Or Alpha Numeric

Jan 12, 2010

I have a column that has cells with values as

19352510
C084111X AA
24253081
A001290U AA
19599291
48413321

I want to write an If Statement is a column next to each entry that denotes two options either Broker or Agent. Where the code is say 19352510 then Broker and where it is say C084111X AA then Agent.

Broker codes will never contain a letter. The Agent code will always start and finish with a letter.

## Excel 2010 :: Clear Chevron Characters And Characters Inside Chevrons

Jan 17, 2012

Is there an Excel formula to remove the spacebar + characters in red, as shown below? I need to be left with only the last name, first name and the semicolon.

Mouse, Mickey ;

Microsoft Outlook has changed the way that email addresses from the global addressbook copy and paste (from version 2003 to version 2010).

Nov 10, 2009

I want to add a letter to the end of value and have it start over at "A" when the cell value changes. For example

My Column contains
BIR1510
BIR1522
BIR1524
BIR1524
BIR1524
BIR1524
BIR1532
BIR1532
BIR1533

I want this in another column
BIR1510A
BIR1522A
BIR1524A
BIR1524B
BIR1524C
BIR1524D
BIR1532A
BIR1532B
BIR1533A

## Conditional Formatting Counting Characters If Less Than X Characters

May 13, 2009

I'm trying to use conditional formatting to highlight cells in a column that have less than 8 characters.

I know the LAN function, but I don't know how to make it work for the conditional formatting.

## How To Add Alpha Numeric Values

Mar 5, 2014

In a column I have data like 2W, 2BM, 4W, 6BM, 10W and 15BM. Question is how can I total all W and all BM. Total for W = 2W + 4W+10W = 16W and total for BM = 2BM +6BM +15BM = 23BM.

What formula should I used to get totals

## Numeric Alpha Sort

Mar 5, 2009

I have an application where there is a column A with values of F1 through
F83. There is data in columns B,C,D,E,F AND G.

From time to time there is an addition in column A, the value being F1A or F2A etc.
The rows then have to be sorted so that F1A follows F1 and the next row would start with F2 rather than F10.

## Alpha Numeric Sort

Dec 15, 2006

I'm doing a sort of product codes which are of different character length with some numeric and others alpha-numeric.

A small section of the sort is below.

I want it to end up like this:

4040
4040A
4040B
4040BTO
4040C
4040E
40400
40409
41402
42402
42402A
43400

But the sort ends up like this:

4040
40400
40409
4040A
4040B
4040BTO
4040C
4040E
41402
42402
42402A
43400

In other words, I would like product codes where the last character is a letter to be sorted ahead of product codes where the last character is a digit. The way Excel is normally set up, it sorts in just the opposite way.

## Max Of An Alpha-numeric List

## Separating Alpha And Numeric

Jan 21, 2009

I have data in column with combination of alpha-numeric like "Member # 308166 RCI Number 4801-60436". can I split this without using copy and paste?

## Limit First Character To Alpha

Feb 27, 2009

I'm trying to have the macro limit the cell entry to 5 characters beginning with a "P" and the remaining 4 character being numeric. The problem I'm having is that it's not recognizing the requirement for the beginning "P" but only identifies if the length is less than 5 characters. Any idea how I can resolve this?

For PN2 = 43 To 72
If Not IsEmpty(Cells(PN2, 1)) And Left(Cells(PN2, 1), 1) "P" And Len (Cells(PN2, 1)) 5 Then
MsgBox ("The employee number must be 5 characters long begining with P (e.g. P0001), please change accordingly!")
Range(Cells(PN2, 1), Cells(PN2 + 2, 1)).ClearContents
Cells(PN2, 1).Select
End If
Next

## 6 Digit Alpha Numeric Random?

May 13, 2014

So what i need is a 6 digit alpha numeric random (1000 entries)

so from some searching i figured that it should be...

=MID(A1,1+INT(RAND()*LEN(A1)),1)&MID(A1,1+INT(RAND ()*LEN(A1)),1)&MID(A1,1+INT(RAND()*LEN(A1)),1)&
MID (A1,1+INT(RAND()*LEN(A1)),1)&MID(A1,1+INT(RAND()*L EN(A1)),1)&MID(A1,1+INT(RAND()*LEN(A1)),1)

[Code]....

but when i fill down it auto it to a2 , then a3 etc... how do i stop that?

I might delete out the o O and 0 cause it gets confusing...

Also, it re-randomizes every time I open the file... is there a way to stop it?

## How To Increment Alpha Number String

Sep 19, 2012

I have a log that I need to number starting in cell A1, as follows:

A-0001
A-0002
A-0003

etc.

I've put this formula in A2 to try an increment it by 1, but it just replicates the string in A1:

=LEFT(A1,3)&MID(A1,2,5)+1&RIGHT(A1,2)

with the proper syntax?...

## Can A Vlookup Import Alpha Text

Aug 17, 2007

Can't seem to get a VLOOKUP to work and import alpha text such as a person's name. Is there a formula that would do this similar to a VLOOKUP?

## Extract Alpha Numeric Values

Sep 17, 2007

I have cells with alphanumeric values. I need to extract the numeric values based on certain criteria and put these values in adjescent rows.

The sheet I am using has 3 rows . Row B contains data. Row C is Amount, Row D is Month, Row E is Action

To put values in Rows C, D and E , I need the data from row B in following criteria.

data in B row is as follows :-

RS 555/STMT DT 170807/BP12/TO PAY MEMBERSHIP FEE
RS.555/STMT 020907/BP12/ OFFER
ANNFEE RS 555/- / STMT 020907 / BP 12 / FIRST TIME
RS595/STMT 0807/BP12/ first time
MEM FEES RS 525 /STMT 120807 / BP12/1ST TIM

criteria for row C
if the cell contains "AMT" or "RS" or "INR" or "AMNT" or "RS."then extract the value till first "/" or "" and put it
under Amount row. ( E.g: "AMT 595 /" or "Inr 595/" or " Rs. 595")

criteria for row D
if the cell contains "stmt" or begins with "0" or endswith "07" then extract the value till first "/" or "" and put it under Month row.

criteria for row E

if the cell contains "BP" or "OP" then extarct the value till first "/" or "" and put it under department row. ( e.g " BP01 /" or "OP 02 ")

## MID Function :: Numeric, Alphanumeric Or Alpha

Mar 2, 2010

A2 cell data = 11 digits alpha-numeric number.

* begin with either "0" or "1"

I want to the formula to look at the 6th and 6th digit (numeric, alpha-numeric, or Alpha) and compare it with the cells under "'PSCCR Queue - Manager" TAB from C4 thru C7.

Below formula is only looking at the first value when comparing.

=IF(A2="","",IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(MID(A2,6,2),'PSCCR Queue - Manager'!\$C\$4:\$C\$7,0)),"ITS","Non ITS"))

## Covert Numeric Value To Alpha Code

May 23, 2006

I've tried searching the forum here, but have not seen anything like my problem as follows:

I would like to convert the numeric value in a cell to a coded alpha

the numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,and 0 would be coded as B,L,A,C,K,H,O,R,S,E respectively.

For example, if cell A1, held the value of 5750, the formula in cell A2 would result in KLOE.

The figures in Col A would be no smaller than 3 digits nor larger than 5 digits.

## Return Number Before Alpha Character

Feb 12, 2008

I have an Excel file that quiries Google for driving distance (someone helped me with this.) It returns the correct miles but has some 'extra' characters. Example:
31.1&nb or 886&nbs

So the answer always has &nbs after the mileage. I tried the following function which works when there is a decimal but fails when there is not. =REPLACE(MID(E2,1,SEARCH("&",E2,1)-1),SEARCH(".",E2,1),1,","). Can this be done with a function or must it be VB script? Which is fine if it is.
