In Search Of ASCII Characters

Nov 13, 2006

I have a sheet A1:R456 provided from an outside source, with many large text entries. In some of them appear various ascii strings such as, but not exclusively: •

It appears these have replaced apostrophe's, dashes, and other types of punctuation and formatting (bullets, etc).

I have used the Find (Ctrl-F) to locate some, but it only works if you know what you're looking for. According to Excel HELP! :o Clean() only strips the lower 32 ascii codes, and I'm pretty sure these are at the high end of the ascii chart.

I don't want to remove them, I want to replace them, but I'm not sure if it should be an apostrophe, a dash, or whatever. So I'd be happy to find them and I'll fix it as best I can.

Any VBA code to locate all cells in a range that contain any high-order ascii (say above 127) and fill with yellow?

Search And Replace Special Characters

Oct 14, 2009

I have a worksheet that I produced from optical character recognition, and there are a lot of funky characters that I need to get rid of. One is a line break or carraige return (I assume it's the same character that I could insert by entering ALT+ENTER). How do I search for this special character to replace it? How do I identify what that invisible character is?

Search String For Defined Set Of Characters

Nov 21, 2009

I have about 700 cells I want to interrogate. Within each cell the following text appears Estimate BOLB/02/1234 Some more text here. I want to search all the cells and delete the cell contents but leave the BOLB/02/1234.

The problem I have is that the string is different in each cell but the format is the same. It always starts with BOLB followed by /, followed by 2 numbers, followed by / followed by 4 numbers i.e. BOLB/**/****.

Search Through Cells With Alphabet Characters

Dec 20, 2007

I have a worksheet with a list of ID Numbers:

for example:

A1001
A1002
A1003
:
etc,

I purchased the book from Mr.Excel and got it last week called VBA and Macros for Microsoft Excel. I can't seem to find the code for macros to search through the cells and then either change the cell colour to highlight the cells that contains an alphabetical character. I am trying to remove all the characters in the cells so only the numbers are left over.

Search On Carriage Returns/characters

Jun 20, 2007

I have done a search on carriage returns/characters and what has been suggested is not working. I have BOTH carriage returns in the cell and also the boxes (that I assume are also carriage returns. I tried the substitute formula (=substitute(cellref,char(10),)) in excel but it only removes the alt+enter carriage return. I tried the various suggestions of find & replace but the chr$..etc did not work! Is there a formula to clear both in one (not a macro!)..?

VLookup In Array Search With Wildcard Characters

Jul 10, 2012

I have a sheet with Names in it. I need to look those names up and find which org they belong to. The problem is the the names have many characters after them, and many names belong to a few orgs, with a the rest belonging to many orgs. (See below)

I have been trying to get a Vlookup to work, but since it can't go left, it won't look up the orgs that don't own at least three names. And I can't get the search to work on the names.

Names:

Search For Specific Characters In A Range Of Cells

Oct 5, 2008

I have a column of values of peoples initials and I want to cound how many times one persons initials occur in those cells. I can do this if the cells just contain one person i.e. "CH" or "DH" but if the cell has two or more peoples initials i.e. "CD DH" I can't do it as it only matches the exact search criteria.

How can I total the numebr of times a required set of initials appears in a specific column of cells? Not bothered is it requires a macro or a formulae, just can't seem to figure this one out.

Find Fields That Start With Characters Entered In Search Box

May 16, 2014

Is there a way to force Excel to look at only the first characters in a field when searching?

If I use:
MySearch = Range("C3").Value
Cells.Find(What:=MySearch, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt _
:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _
False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

It will find any instance of the characters entered in C3; however, I want it to find only fields that START with those characters. E.g. if I enter TRA in the search box it will come up with CITRATE when I want TRACLEER, etc.

ASCII Code For Character

May 20, 2009

Find the ASCII character code for the characters in cells A3-D3? I have a problem importing data into the database because of these cells. They have some weird properties: ISBLANK would return them FALSE; however if I leave blank space in "Find and Replace" it will find and replaces those cells together with cells which are genuinely blank. So I could theoretically go and replace all blank cells to some character (for example ^), then do the opposite and replace ^ into blank and it would solve the problem, but I am curious as to what exactly this character is.

ASCII Key Mapping In VB Userform

Jan 4, 2007

Private Sub Form_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
If KeyAscii = Chr(vbKeyA) Then
If sngXFactor 1 Then
sngXFactor = -1
sngYFactor = 0
End If
ElseIf KeyAscii = Chr(vbKeyW) Then
If sngYFactor -1 Then
sngXFactor = 0
sngYFactor = -1
End If
ElseIf KeyAscii = Chr(vbKeyD) Then
If sngXFactor -1 Then
sngXFactor = 1
sngYFactor = 0
End If
ElseIf KeyAscii = Chr(vbKeyS) Then
If sngYFactor 1 Then
sngXFactor = 0
sngYFactor = -1
End If
End If
End Sub

That is what I have right now, basically I just want to map W, A, S, and D to change variables. What am I doing wrong?

Keep in mind that this is a userform and not an excel worksheet.

Hex To ASCII Conversion Formula In Excel

Apr 17, 2002

I know you can create a DEC2HEX formula. I wanted to convert Hex to Ascii.

When I use HEX2DEC, it puts the ASCII number instead of the actual character.

For instance, if I put the HEX number 4A in Cell A1, I want Cell A2 to display a capital J instead of the number 74 which is J in ASCII.

Ascii File Import Malfunctioning

Aug 31, 2009

I am importing multiple ascii files into one workbook, each file into a single sheet of the workbook. When I manually import an ascii file, everything works and formats fine. When I import the file or files with my macro, the formatting of the values in the ascii file isnt working correctly, that is, if a value is for instance 51,442 (, being the decimal seperator), it is input to the cell as 51,442, as in fifty one thousand, four hundred forty two..My import function is below, and I have tried various combinations of using the decimal seperator command and thousands seperator command, all to no avail..

Lastly, in case it matters, this is on a PC with regional settings set to Germany as well.

Below an example of the import which I found online earlier..

x = 1
Set wkbTemp = Workbooks.Open(Filename:=FilesToOpen(x))
wkbTemp.Sheets(1).Copy
Set wkbAll = ActiveWorkbook
wkbTemp.Close (False)
wkbAll.Worksheets(x).Columns("A:A").TextToColumns _
Destination:=Range("A1"), DataType:=xlDelimited, _
TextQualifier:=xlDoubleQuote, _
ConsecutiveDelimiter:=False, _
Tab:=True, Semicolon:=False, _
Comma:=False, Space:=False, _
Other:=False, DecimalSeparator:=","
x = x + 1

Macro To Format Number/ Export Ascii

Apr 3, 2008

I have some dates that I want to reformat. The file is an ascii text file, and I have imported this into excel. There are 7 and 8 character lengths

3122007
10122007

I want the dates to be all 8 characters (with a zero in front of the 7 character dates), and also I want to reverse the format, so it will read 20071203

I have a number of methods but nothing has worked yet.

After this I plan to export the file as a comma separated ascii txt file. I managed to import it, but I'm not sure how to export it.

Take X Characters From One Cell And Y Characters From The Next?

Aug 1, 2014

So we have people's names in a table. First name in one column and last name in another column. We have a 3rd column where we can use 8 characters to do a combination of First 5 of Last Name + first 3 of first name. However, if someone's last name is only 3 or 4 characters, we'd then want to take more from the first name to fill out the 8 characters.

So:
Charles Johnson -> Johnscha
John Smith -> Smithjoh
Willian Wu -> Wuwillia

What's the best way to do that without creating some crazy formula with tons of if/thens?

Search Multiple Worksheets Against List Of Non-Exact Search Criteria?

Nov 2, 2009

I have a workbook with many many sheets in it. The first sheet contains a single column with about 10,000 different values. I'd like to use each of these as search criteria against ALL data in the other sheets (of which there are a good 50 or so). If matches are found (they don't have to be exact case), then I'd like two things to happen:

1. The rows containing the matched search criteria in the first sheet are highlighted.

2. In the cells adjacent to the search criteria in the first sheet, hyperlinks to the matched data are created and named after the sheet upon which this matched data appears.

I've attached a sample file to this post with ideal sample 'answers' to queries made of the first 2 terms.

VBA: Search Function: Which Shows An Input Box Where You Can Enter A Word To Search For

Sep 9, 2003

I'm from Bavaria, Germany. Right now, I am doing an internship for my studies. my problem: I need a search procedure which shows an Input Box where you can enter a word to search for. It should work like the original Excel search (Ctrl-F), but with a simpler design, like with my own Text "Enter your Query" and a Button "Submit Query" / "Quit search". Is there the possibility to Highlight the Search Target? The problem hereby is that this highlighting should not be permanent. That means the user sees the target for which he searched for, the cell highlighted in a different color, etc. But as soon as the user clicks onto another cell, etc., the highlighting vanishes. If there is no fitting match, there should be a MessageBox like "Sorry the Target xyz cannot be found"

Link Search Box With VLookup To Provide Search Result

Jul 15, 2012

What i have so far is:
-3 Sheets (Sheet1 - Search, Sheet2 - Data, Sheet3 - Result)
-Sheet1 has a userform ready to link up - this opens up when workbook and worksheet is activated.
-Sheet2 has some example data to search - the search is for column 1 (see attachment)
-Sheet3 has a template ready for the data to be pasted to.

I would like the search result is column 1 to copy the data from columns 1 to 7 to sheet3.

I want the template/layout to remain after the pasting of results. (everything protected from editing, if possible).

Once finished (ie go back to sheet1, i want the data from sheet3 to be cleared.)

Using The =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH Function To Search Multiple Cells)

Aug 21, 2009

I' having trouble using the =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH formula to search multiple cells.

I can get it to work to search one cell (as below):

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Same",G10)),"No Change",'Aug 09 Matrix'!F10)

(In this case the respone is No Change as Cell G10 contains "Same")

However cannot get it to work for several cells. I have pasted below and highlighted the function I would like it to perform:

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Same",G10:R10)),"No Change",'Aug 09 Matrix'!F10)

Essentially the other cells in that row (G10:R10) all contain "Same", however for some reason it is identifying this as FALSE and putting in the data from the 'Aug 09 Matrix' sheet.

How To Ask Formula To Search For Multiple Values Within One Search

Mar 4, 2014

I need one formula to copy and paste the checkcard data changing it from this "CHECKCARD XXXXXX5623" to "CHECKCARD 5623", but I need one formula to look for multiple known checkcard numbers. I will have more then one typically in the bank download so I need to search and copy at least two known numbers as shown below.

I am providing the formula that I am using right now, "=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("5623",B3)),RIGHT(B3,41),"")" but it only works for one checkcard number? Also I don't really need to capture the DEBIT or CREDIT that will always be at the end, it would be redundant. If it's easier to write the formula including that data that is no problem. What I want to copy and move into an adjacent cell is in red.

Here is the source data:
Row 2 - SONIC DRIVE IN#1531 AUSTIN TXDEBIT FOR CHECKCARD XXXXXX5623 DEBIT
Row 3 - JASON'S DELI # 125 Q64 AUSTIN TXDEBIT FOR CHECKCARD XXXXXX9718 DEBIT
