Is there any way to create a macro for the following:
I have the following format
First Name MI Last Name in Column A.
Sometimes there is a space on the last name for someone with a last name Mc Cormick (for example)
Also, sometimes the list of names is short and sometimes the list of names is long. Is there a way to get a "universal" macro in place, that will not depend on the number of names in the list but will be able to detect when the list ends?
So far I was able to run the macro to get them from text-to-column into cells A, B, and C. However, the middle column sometimes contains the last name if there isn't a middle initial. I need a way to test the middle column for more than one character. If there is more than one character, it is a last name and needs to be in the third column.
On sheet one, in the column column C I have cells which have characters separated by a space character (For example cell C3 looks like this: "L C"; cell C12 looks like this: "S BF54FR"). There are only a few cells which have more than three characters. The characters are separated by a space character. I would like the macro to do the following: take out each on of the character in put in the same row next column. (For example if in column C has the value: "L C" then in the same row column D should have the value "L" and column E should have the value "C". Or if column C was "S BF54FR" then column D should have the value "S" and column E "BF54FR".
I am trying to split a string into separate cells. I have managed to generate the formula for the description and first dlr value in the string but I am have trouble figuring out how to build functions for the rest of the string.
I have a string of data coming from a SQL Server data connection into my workbook. The value in the column is a text string that is pipe delimited. I need a macro to parse the data from that column into applicable separate columns. I would typically use text to columns for this and parse it out manually... but the tool I'm creating is one of the automated variety, so that will not suffice for this application. I need it to do this automatically when the data connection refreshes.

I receive an extraction from AutoCAD that lists the electrical devices in a drawing. I don't have any problems extracting the letters. I have a problem extracting the device number and the device number extension.
The device label extraction is similar to this: DCM1005-1 DCM1005-10 DCM1005A MTR1005-1 MTR1005-10 MTR1005A
I want to create 3 columns from the device label: (I separated the column with commas) A1, B1, C1, D1 DCM1005-1, DCM, 1005, 1 DCM1005-10, DCM, 1005, 10 DCM1005A, DCM, 1005, A MTR1005-1, MTR, 1005, 1 MTR1005-10, MTR, 1005, 10 MTR1005A, MTR, 1005, A
I'm trying to use a formula in conditional formatting to highlight a cell red if the cell contains a 0 but the date shown in another cell has passed. I want to copy the formatting throughout a column but I don't want the cell to highlight if there is no date in the other cell concerned.
I'm looking for a short snippet of code to cut all rows with the string "W2 - No P.E Kit" in column E of the Raw Data tab into a tab called No kit. I don't want gaps in the rows of the Raw Data tab however.
I have a script to import all the data in a text file into an excel sheet. However, the data that is imported are in the first column of every row.
for e.g. 123454566788329929201012827192019128278111111111abc213123123123123
there is no comma nor / to separate the string of alphanumerics is there any vba script that i can incorporate to separate the first 3 digit in the first column then 5 digit in the second column then 7 digit in the 3rd columns and etc.
I need to get the string GE#### before each " class="button"> and copy it on a cell on the right. There are other links of this format [URL] ..... in the cell, but I am interested only the ones that have " class="button"> after it.
The length of the ID after GE can be 2, 3, 4 or 6 characters long. But I am ok with getting GE + 6 characters following it as that means I would get something like GE12" cl and I will delete the extra character by doing a find/replace.
I have a large sheet of data I'm trying to sort through. Each row of data has a column that contains a long string description. Each of these strings contains a three letter codes in all caps that I want to be able to pull out. I have a seperate sheet that has all of the possible three letter codes in one column. Is there a formula that can compare each string of text to this list of three letter codes and if it find a match put that code in a column on the original sheet?
Doc Number String Code
33333 This is an example string of text. An example three letter code would be HCB. The location of the code within the string varies. HCB
33332 This is an example string of text. An example three letter code would be CDQ. The location of the code within the string varies. CDQ
33331 This is an example string of text. An example three letter code would be RCA. The location of the code within the string varies. RCA
I need a VBA function to extract number sequences from a string and separate them with hyphens In the example below cell A1 has the value 'xx2 yyy34 zz515' The code must produce the value '2-34-515' from the above example I have the following function that extracts the numbers but need a way to separate the groups with a hyphen
Code: Function parseNum(strSearch As String) As String Dim i As Integer, tempVal As String For i = 1 To Len(strSearch)
However, whenever I run the code, if there's even on word that is bold in the cell, then the entire text string in the cell turns bold. How can I stop this from happening? i want to keep the format of the text string the same, only remove and replace the items listed in the code.
I have a macro that takes the column of data from D on Sheet 1, pastes it into A on Sheet 3, gets rid of duplicates and then, in B1, combines all the numbers from A into a comma-separated string. The only problem is that it puts a comma at the beginning of the string. Is there something I can do to make that first comma not be there?
So I was given the task to translate some procedure instructions in an Excel file from English to Spanish. These are very simple instructions and in most cases repetitive throughout the document. There are a lot of instances where the instructions are the same except for a #. They are meant to be modified within the cell as the text that appears in the cell will be printed exactly as it appears.There are several instructions in the cell, it is basically a long continuous string in the cell. My idea is to create a macro that can search that range of cells for the instruction, replace it with the Spanish equivalent while leaving the original English instruction in the cell.
I have a workbook that uses the values that a user had entered into 3 cells to calculate multiple other charts/diagrams on multiple sheets within the workbook. Each sheet would show what the user had entered in the 3 cells to allow them to see what is being used to calculate each table. Is it possible to link these cells so that the user can change the 3 values without having to go back to where he originally entered the 3 values?
For example, a user has entered in 3 values in Sheet 1. A formula in Sheet 2 displays what is entered by the user and uses these calls in Sheet 2 for calculations. When the user wants to change the three values, he would have to navigate to Sheet 1 and enter in the new values to have the workbook recalculate all the tables. Is there a way to link the three cells from Sheet 1 and Sheet 2 so when the user is on Sheet 2, he has the opportunity to change the values on the current Sheet without having to navigate to Sheet 1 to do so?
I would like a formula that will take the info from 2 cells (not adjacent to each other or in the same row) and then look these up in a table giving the answer in the 3rd column somewhere else on the worksheet.
