# Modifying Formula To Get First Part Of Postcode

Mar 7, 2012

I have this function that checks a postcode and returns a value using the first part of the postcode.

What i would like to know is how to modify the function so if there is only the first part of a postcode already entered, it looks for that.

At the moment sometimes i get #N/A even though i know that value is in there.

Code:

=INDEX(U\$4:U\$1068,LOOKUP(1068,MATCH(IF({0,1},LEFT(B338,FIND(" ",B338)-1),LEFT(B338,1+ISERR(MID(B338,2,1)+0))),T\$4:T\$1068,0)))

## Encountering Error When Modifying A Formula

Jun 2, 2014

Below is a formula that I am attempting to modify:

From this:
=IFERROR(IF(A8<MIN(A\$8:A\$30)+365*5+1,(IF(AND(A8>=\$E\$4,A8<=\$E\$5),1,0)*B8*(MAX(C8,D8)/365)+B8),(IF(AND(A8>=\$E\$4,A8<=\$E\$5),1,0)*B8*(D8/365)+B8)),"")

To this:
=IFERROR(IF(A8<MIN(A\$8:A\$30)+365*5+1,B8*(MAX(C8,D8)/365)+B8),B8*(D8/365)+B8)),"")

But it is giving me an error result.

## Modifying Lookup Formula To Get Relevant Data

Apr 22, 2009

I am trying to do what I thought was a simple look-up. On one sheet in colum A I have some text and in colum B I have a number. On a second sheet i have a list of text that may or may not match the text on the first sheet in colum A. If the text in colum A matches one of the text items in the list, I want to have the value in colum B appear next to it in colum C. I tried to modify a vlookup formula but would only get a value error if there was a match.

## Modifying A Sumproduct Formula To Search For Words In A Cell

Jul 7, 2009

My current formula is this: =SUMPRODUCT((Str311A=1)*(Str311C=15)*(Str311G<>" DM "),Str311L). All the items starting with Str311 are formula's associate with a name. What I'm trying to do is add one more factor into the formula. I need it to look in column I for any cell that contains the words L/S. I tried modifying the formula to this but it does not work:

SUMPRODUCT((Str311A=1)*(Str311C=15)*(Str311I="*L/S*")*(Str311G<>" DM "),Str311L)

The formula contained inside the names are:

Str311=OFFSET(Outlet!\$A\$1,MATCH("STORE # 163311",Outlet!\$A:\$A,0)-1,0,MATCH("TOTAL FOR STORE : 163311 SAN MARCOS",Outlet!\$A:\$A,0)-MATCH("STORE # 163311",Outlet!\$A:\$A,0)+1,1)

Str311A=OFFSET(Str311,0,0)

Str311C=OFFSET(Str311,0,2)

Str311I=OFFSET(Str311,0,8)

Str311G=OFFSET(Str311,0,6)

What I need is a way to modify my original formula to now also only match cells that contain the phrase L/S. The phrase can be located at the beggining, middle, or end of the cell characters.

## Modifying Concatenation Formula - Put A Space If Cell Is Blank

Jul 4, 2013

How would I modify this concatenation formula:

Code:

I would like it not to put a space in if A2 is blank.

## Text Formula? Postcodes: Seperate The First Or First Two Text Characters From The Rest Of The Postcode

Feb 16, 2007

I am working on sales information which includes postcodes. What i need to do is seperate the first or first two text characters from the rest of the postcode. I have attached a small snipet of what i am working on. Currently i am using the =Left(A4,2) but this will give me in some case a numerical value aswell. For example E1 or G1 in the case of the sample attached. Is there a formula that exists where it will just return the text values in a cell and not numerical values.

## UK Postcode Sorting

Nov 6, 2009

I've been assigned an assessment involving excel (2007), which involves me creating a small business system.

Part of this system involves a spreadsheet with a list of engineers and the postcode range that they are allocated to to fix callout problems.

What I would like to know, is if a callout request is made using a postcode, is it possible to automatically assign the engineer to the request?

Example, J Scott's work range is NE10 - NE19
If I entered the postcode NE12 7TD into the callout request form, is it possible to use formula or VB to assign J Scott's ID to the callout request?

All suggestions and help are greatly appreciated, I would request that solutions are kept as simple as possible as long as it's not much to ask for D:.

A possible solution i've thought of is making 2 fields in each of the engineer's rows, one being the lowest area range, and the other being the highest (e.g. J Scott's would be 10 and 19 respectivly) from there, I could possibly use formulae to assign the engineer's ID, and get his details using VLOOKUP.

## Insert A Space In A Postcode

Jan 5, 2010

I'm trying to find a formula that will put a space in the correct place in a British postcode.

I have a column I need to sort this way. Some of the postcodes already have the correct space and others don't.

British postcodes can be in several formats......

n = a letter
1 = a number

n11 1nn
n1 1nn
n1 1n
n1n 1n
n1n 1nn
n11n 1n
n11n 1nn
nn1 1nn
nn1 1n
nn11 1nn
nn11 1n

On a side note I need to make all the text uppercase. In the column some already have uppercase and others don't.

## Identify And Extract Postcode From Address?

Aug 25, 2012

Column D contains a complete address eg
60 Braugham Road, Wallasey, Merseyside CH46 1LP

I would like to be able to extract the postcode into column E, and then the address into columns F, G, H etc so that I can use the data for mailmerge docs. Is there a forumula or a macro that can be used to identify and extract the postcode? The postcode will usually be either one or two letters with one or two numbers, then a number and two letters. eg it might be as above or B6 9XF etc.

## Match Addresses Based On Postcode

Aug 30, 2007

I have a worksheet of customer data which includes full postcode / zip codes. I have a separate sheet where postcodes are listed. I would like to use the postcode list worksheet to find any address matches and then create a new worksheet of the filtered addresses (to include duplicates if found). Have attached a zip file of the spreadsheet data as an example.

## Sort Postcode List Alphabetically And Numerically

Aug 8, 2013

How can I sort the attached list both alphabetically and numerically. I have a list of UK postcode sectors which I am trying to sort alphabetically and numerically, the order should be eg AB1 0, AB10 1, G2 1, G20 1 but excel wont allow that sort order. There are three postcode formats

XX11 1
X1 1
X11 1

Where X an Y could be any letters in the alphabet and 1 could be any digit 0 to 9. Have attached a short list and formula in column B which would allow me to sort the list in column A which I can then apply to my full list.

## Extracting Postcode Ranges To A Single Cell

Sep 24, 2009

I have a very large spread sheet of about 20,000 rows. I need to output to a cell postcode ranges based on the Zone. Not all the numbers in the postcode zones are consecutive.

For the example below, the output cell for the DWN range would display like this: 0800-0801, 0804, 0810-0813

Each output cell postal range must be specific to each zone.

Postcode Zone 0200 CBA 0200 CBA 0221 CBA 0800 DWN 0800 DWN 0801 DWN 0804 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0810 DWN 0811 DWN 0812 DWN 0812 DWN 0813 DWN

Is there anyway to do this without manually doing it? I would like to tell you I've tried this and that but I've never done anything like this before so I really don't know where to start.

## Verify A Postcode Format That Starts With A Number Followed By One Or Two Letters

How would I verify a postcode format that starts with a number followed by one or two letters, space, number, letter, letter, if correct displays correct if incorrect displays incorrect

## Filter The Column Of Postcodes Into The Postcode Defined Regions?

Jun 27, 2013

I have a list of post codes two letter starts by region. e.g.

inner london:

EC
WC
SW
W
NW
E
SE

In addition I have several very long lists of postcodes which I can obviously pull out the first two letters from using the Left function.

However I am wondering what is the best way to filter the column of postcodes into the postcode defined regions such as inner london nicely.

## Excel 2007 :: Ensure Cell Postcode Have 8 Characters (including Spaces)

Oct 8, 2012

Excel 2007.I have a list of postcodes (UK) which have different lengths of characters (including spaces) from 6-8, however our system seems to add additional spaces inbetween the postcode, so it could have upto 11/12 characters (inc spaces) Below is what could come out:

EH21 6PQ - 1 Space (8 Char)
EH12 9HG - 3 Spaces (10 Char)
E1 8DF - 3 Spaces (8 Char)
LL5 1GH - 2 Spaces (8 Char)
L5 1FG - 1 Space (6 Char)

What I need is a formula to ensure each postcode only has 8 characters by inserting spaces between if there's less than 8 char and trimming if there's more than 8 char

So from the above postcodes the desired results would be:

EH21 6PQ - 1 Space (8 Char) - This would be correct
EH12 9HG - 3 Spaces (10 Char) - Trim off 2 spaces from the middle
E1 8DF - 3 Spaces (8 Char) - This would be correct
LL5 1GH - 2 Spaces (8 Char) - This would be correct
L5 1FG - 1 Space (6 Char) - Insert 2 spaces in the middle

## How To Replace A Part Of Formula With Value

Aug 9, 2014

I want to replace a part of a formula with its value.

eg say I have a formula =vlookup(\$a55,\$a\$2:\$e\$50,column(),false).

I want to replace column() with its value. There will be plenty of cells with this formula What can be the best way of achieving this.

## I Want To Use Text As Part Of A Formula

Sep 18, 2009

I am trying to create my household budget in Excel, but there is a sub-category.

I need a formula which will calculate the following:

Under the "Daily living" section, I have typed the names of the sub-categories, eg: ,
Groceries
General Household
Cleaning
Education/Lessons
Cash

I want it to find all totals next to the word "groceries" in the main part of the spreadsheet, where I type in my credit card statements according to date.

In other words, I want it to add up all my entries/totals next to the word 'groceries' and show the total up at the top of the document, in the "amount" column so I can see the monthly category totals at a glance.

## Replace Part Of A Formula?

Oct 4, 2011

I am trying to modify a cell formula with the Replace function.

Code:

The Formula in the target cell =

='C:Documents and SettingsHoliday macro[Holiday2011.xls]Year 2011'!C5

I am using the below code but it returns just the end portion ='Year 2012'!C5

where I expect just the year to change

='C:Documents and SettingsHoliday macro[Holiday2012.xls]Year 2012'!C5

Where last year = 2011

Yr=2012

Range("C3").Formula = Replace(Range("C3").Formula, LastYr, Yr)

## Delete Part Of Formula

Jul 24, 2012

I have a dump which looks like below sample:

3
3
2
2

3
3
2
2

[code]....

The actual dump will have around 200 - 500 rows of data.

From the above I need to manually group them which are similar.

E.g. the data of (3, 3, 2 , 2) in row 1 & 2 are matching, so they will be group 1 & row 3 will be group 2, row 4 will be group 3 respectively.

The sum & sort did not work for me as sometimes the data with the same range are not in same order.

E.g of the output below for the above data:

Group No.

1
3
3
2
2

1
3
3
2
2

[code]....

## Using Cell Value As Part Of Formula?

Feb 10, 2013

I have the following formula in my workbook;

=SUMPRODUCT((A2:A8702"")/COUNTIF(A2:A8702,A2:A8702&""))

The data in the workbook is imported automatically and the range 'A8702' is different every time the data is imported, although is always in column A.

Can I use the value of a cell to determine the range?

So I have used this to get the ast used row number;

=MAX(ROW(A:A)*(A:A""))

## Cell Formula For Part Of Tab Name

Jan 23, 2008

I need a cell formula (gets put in by macro) that returns part of a workbook name.

The worksheet name will always be different, but will contain either
SD1, SD4, BDO, BD (not neccessarily in Caps)
and it is this key code that i want returned in the cell (G2).

so if the worksheet name is

NW SD1 bobs your uncle. when macro runs G2 returns SD1
or
BDO xyz. when macro runs G2 returns BDO

## How To Extract Part Of Formula

Feb 2, 2010

I need to extract the part of formula in a cell. How can I do that?

For instance; I have formula: =C2/3579 in cell E2

I want to copy the last part in that formula i.e. 3579 to some other cell.

The last part (3579) is not constant in every report. It may vary in each report thus the length may vary from 4 digits to 5 digits also.

## IF Formula Does Not Work On The Last Part Of This Formula

Apr 17, 2007

This IF formula does not work on the last part of this formula
IF(E10>50,"\$50.00",0)))) and I think there is a conflict with the
IF(E9>199,(E9*0.01) but I cannot figure out what the problem is.

=IF(E8>0,"\$0.00",IF(E9199,(E9*0.01),IF(E10>50,"\$50.00",0))))

## Multiple Lookup: List Of Part Numbers Based On The Product Part Code

Feb 12, 2009

I'm creating a worksheet that gives a list of part numbers based on the product part code. In most cases I can use the following.

=LOOKUP(O6,{0,1,2,3,4},{"NONE (M25)","SMP-55-001","SMP-55-004","SMP-55-008","SMP-55-014"})

so this gives a part number depending on what number is placed in O6. What I need to do know is look at 2 different cells and for each combination of numbers give a different part number. so if A1 is 2 and B1 is 3 give a certain result.

## Make A Part Number Formula?

Apr 22, 2009

I'll try to keep this brief. Our part #'s look like this. XP014567. Where the first pair of characters stand for a value(say XP=Bolt), the second pair stand for a value(01= Grade 2), and so on. What I would like to be able to do is type in the part numer and have the description automatically populate. Is there an easy way to do this? I'm running Excel 2003.

## Formula To Identify New Part Numbers

Jun 17, 2009

Im using a formula to identify new part numbers. The formula is: =IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(A217,Existing!A:A,0)),"","NEW"). However you can clearly see from the attached that if has flagged a duplicate part number as new. Why would it do that? Check out A1368 in existing and A217 in new.

## Using Variable In Cell Formula As Part Of For Next
