## Finding A Non Numeric (or Numeric) Character In A Field

Sep 1, 2008

I have a few thousand products codes (i.e ABCD123BLA08 or SHU267BLA) They are non standardised in length or structure. I wish to pull out everything upto the end of the third numeric digit.( ie ABCD123 and SHU267) I cannot use left as they are all different lengths. Ideally i would serach for a non numeric char after the number then use left up to that point. Search can't do this, FIND can't do this.

Summary
ABCD123BLA08 would be ABCD123
SHU246BLU would be SHU246
I147ORT08-12 would be I147

## Find Position Of Various Characters In String

Jul 11, 2014

Is it possible to find the location of different characters in a string (using VBA)? Normally I would use InStr of InStrRev option in VBA but my situation is a little more complicated.

The character I am looking for is not always the same, sometimes it is a , or a . or a : or a "blank" etc

I tried to do it like:
dim strChar as string
strChar = "[,.? /]"

SearchPosition = InStr ("cell location", strChar) (searchposition is the name of the function I am trying to make)

This works if I define only 1 character, this way it gives me a 0 as outcome

I have tried to change it to strChar = "[,]" or strChar = "[.]" or strChar = "[ ]" but this doesn't work.

## VBA - Extract Part Of A String According To Position / Markers

Sep 11, 2012

I have been confronted with an issue that has bugged me: Now do I extract a part of the string according to lets say "markers"?

Here is what I mean:

I use the code below to get the bottom range of my tables:

Code:

I haven't had problems because my tables were small, then I would:

Code:

blimit = Right(blimit, 3)

If the table was small there was no problem, since lets say the Activecell.Address = "\$C\$123", resulting in blimit = 123.

My how do I extract a part of the string, knowing I have 2 "\$" ? That way I would make a version of this that always works.

I cannot use FIND or any formulas I am aware of since they all start counting from Right to Left... I thought of using Replace() to get the first "\$" and change it for something else like "-" then looking for the second "\$". But Replace() basically changes both signs... making my idea... well obsolete...

## Position Flashing Cursor At The End Of String In Textbox

Oct 15, 2013

I have a choice of 9 command buttons on a form that enter a short string of text into a textbox. Each button enters a different string into the textbox. The string is the prefix to a product serial number. Once the user has clicked the button & entered his preferred prefix I would like the cursor to be flashing after the last character ready for the user to manually type in the remainder of the product serial number. I'm guessing (with my limited ability) that I have to create a function to do this & then call the function when the button is clicked ?

## Using 'Now()' As A Numeric String

Here's a sample of my data:
