It's difficult to explain, the attached shows the situation better. Basically there's a picture that is somehow linked to a cell. But, you can update the picture or the cell and the other one gets updated.
I have a column of data with letters in each cell, no numerical, only alpha. Now, some of those cells contain the letters "adj sub" as part of the text string in each cell. "Adj sub" is always at the beginning of the text string. As an example, a cell will look like this - "adj sub mhm". I want to delete rows whose cell description does not contain "adj sub" as part of the text in the cell.
I am trying to do a vlookup and am having soem issues. I have data like this in the cell i am using as the reference: "60030 - COLUMBUS, OH". The first column of the range I am searching would have "60030" in it. What i need to know is how do I get the vlookup to just reference the first 5 digits in the reference cell? As you can see by the formula below, I set the logical value to true hoping that it would find the closest value, but it did not work. =VLOOKUP(A7,sdoalign,3,TRUE)
I have a column of cells with similar to the following text.
First Marine Avenue 18 1303 11 1
There will always be a final 4 groups of text numbers, each with a space between, but each having different number of numbers (this particular sequence has 2,4,2,1 - but others may be different, but always 4 groups)
The true text ( a series of Road names are potentiaaly all different, having a sequence of words that may be up to 5 words long before the numbers start)
I need to extract the 4 groups of numbers into seperate cells, leaving the Road name text in a singe cell. I would then have a table of 5 columns, the first the Road text, and the next 4 columns being the group of numbers, which I would then format as numbers.
Is it possible to somehow filter, search, find, etc, and basically clean cell A1 so that in the end it has just G3**D1234567?
I made a search macro, but the problem is there is so much text that it takes 2 seconds per cell to do a find. There are 6 columns with 65000 rows. I assume if I clean up each cell and do a "xlWhole" instead of "xlPart" in the find code, it will be much faster.
in order to hyperlink a single peice of text in a cell and not the whole cell I have created a shape with no fill or line but added text. I then hyperlinked it to a location in the workbook. When I set the Move and size with cell property I am not geting the expected result. If I resize a row well above that cell, the object isn't following the cell it wa placed in. I would be happy with alternative mechanisms for putting independantly linked text.
I have been working on this worksheet part of which is attached herewith. I would like excel to automatically enter Updated/Inserted in column B against Individuals' names as per the instructions given in column A. For example: As per instruction in A9, B13:B16 should show Updated. I have tried to use the nested if function, but it does not work as I want it to. Also as I am not used to macros or VBA codes, could this problem be solved with formulas?
I have sheet1 that contains the following information
Column A Column B company1 - book value 0,5 company1 - earnings 0.2 company1 - R&D 1111 company1 - total assets 200000 company2 - book value 2 company2 - earnings 333 company2 - total assets 12
So column B contains only numbers and note that for company 2 I do not have any numbers on R&D.
I have in sheet2 only once the company name. I would like now that if column a contains the text "book value" to have the value of column B pasted in sheet 2 column B. Same for earnings to be pasted in column C. R&D in column D and if R&D is not present for that company then the value should say something like unknown.
I am building a summary spreadsheet which will bring in a number of values from other spreadsheets located in folders on a network. Each set of external references will return the same cells, but the location and filenames are different. In order to make it quick and easy to modify the file names and locations without having to change the cell references in my summary sheet i want to type the full reference in a cell as text then use this in another cell as part of the external reference...
In a field containing this: Bergamot, Orange*(11,16) I want to put a space before the asterisk. There are hundreds of these in the spreadsheet with other text before and after the text to be replaced. I made sure the field is defined as a text field.
I searched on "*(" and said replaced with " *(" and ended up with " *(11,16)" - the Bergamot, Orange was removed from the field.
I have to sort list of thousands name (3000 names) and remove duplicates. My problem is majority of the names have their title (i.e) Prof. Dr. Ir. Sir. etc typed in, so I need to copy the title in different cell and have their name only. Here's what I expect:
Current List ----> Column A -->Column B Drs. H. A. Andrew Boston, MRE. ----> Drs. H. --> Andrew Boston, MRE Drs. H. Andrew Smith ----> Drs. H. --> Andrew Smith H. Abd. Mohammed Junus ----> H. --> Abd. Mohammed Junus Prof. DR. Jane Doe, MD ----> Prof. D --> Jane Doe, MD Prof. DR. Ir. H. Randy Wong, MBA --->Prof. DR. Ir. H. -> Randy Wong, MBA Dra. H. A. Karen Patel ----> Dra. H. --> Karen Patel Drs. H. A. M. Kangkong ----> Drs. H. A. --> M. Kangkong Prof. Drs. H. A. Kareem Saleh, Ph.D -> Prof. Drs. H. A. ->Kareem Saleh, Ph.D Dra. Hj. Nina Schorder ----> Dra. Hj. --> Nina Schorder Ir. Abdul Jabbar ----> Ir. --> Abdul Jabbar
This is not related to macro - it's an excel question regarding wrapped-around text within a cell (i.e.: text brought onto next line by <Alt>+<Enter>)...
SayI have the following in a cell : Car<Alt>+<Enter> Truck<Alt>+<Enter> Van
and say I want to add a figure (in this example 1A) to the first part of the cell and then another to the second line of wrapped text and so on. How can I split the cell (or lookup the first 'wrapped' line) so that I can then perform changes (using formulas with '&' to combine etc or whatever) so that in the end cell have the following:
I need a formula which I am using to count instance of sickness. I include a sample copy of my data which I hope will make my request clearer! I'm currently using the below formula to count the number of continuous instances of any code starting with "SICK" =(SUMPRODUCT((LEFT(C$10:C$37,4)="SICK")*(LEFT(C$10:C$37,4)<>(LEFT(C$10:C$37,4)))))
I would also like this formula to count any code starting with LTS as well (Long Term Sick). Due to the nature of sickness there may be continuous periods where both SICK and LTS codes are used, at the moment I can not come up with a formula to return the value I need. These columns may contain other codes but for simplicities sake I have only shown the relavent ones.
There are basically four fields of text (date, trans. #, merchant, $ amount) all in one cell that I would like to have in 4 separate columns without having to cut-paste, cut-paste, cut-paste. Is it possible for me to break this information up quickly into 4 separtate columns? I have about 400 lines of text like this and would like to find a faster way to do it.
I am working with a column which always displays the cell contents with oldest notes by date first, then the newest note last. I would like to have the contents from a cell reversed with the newest user input by date on top which will simply when reading. Here is an example of a cell. The string always starts with (MM/DD/YYYY TT:TT:TT AM, then user name).

I am trying to select and move text from one column to another. I have roughly 1,000 cells in column A and I would like to tell Excel to select characters at certain positions and move them into the adjacent column.
I want it to look like this...
column A column B ABCDEFGHI BCI
Each cell in column A has a 9-letter sequence. I would like to move characters 2,3 and 9 into the adjacent column
When I use the mouse pointer to select a cell I can't use the arrow keys to move to another cell while the pointer is over the cell and I can't edit the cell while the pointer is over the cell. If I move the pointer away from the cell then I can move around and edit as normal therefore I don't think this is a scroll lock issue.
This issue also happens when I select a tab. If I select a tab and then leave the pointer over the tab I selected then I can't use the arrow keys to move around the worksheet or edit a cell; if I move the pointer away from the cell then I can move around and edit as normal.
I have a sheet where i have many differently named areas (like state1_1 and state1_2) When I doubleclick on a cell then a macro should run with following criteria: 1) Macro will run if the doubleclicked cell is part of any range in the list. Here I mean that names of ranges which belong to that list start with word state (like state1_1 and state1_2). No other ranges should not be in that list. If the cell is not in the range that is part of the list, then nothing should happen.
i have a column of data part number part text e.g 7w1,8b1 in the next column i want to write a function that will look at the other and dependant on whats in it place a word e.g. for 8b1 i need it to look at the "b" and enter beauvale if theres no "b" but a "w" enter wollaton, i have tried an if function and used "*b*" but it doesnt seem to like wildcards ....
These cells contain a time reference either in '09:30 - 16:30' format or just an 'AM/PM' format.
What I need to do is to populate column B with the part of the string that comes AFTER the times in the text (either in hh:mm format or AM/PM format)
Example 336 Data 2012 Classroom Induction 2012/08/28 09:30 - 16:30 data about this ------> data about this 336 Information about this 2013/04/04 09:00 - 13:00 Information 2 ------> Information 2 336 info CHS Suffolk 2013/05/07 PM DRC, BSE ------> DRC, BSE 364 information 2013/02/12 AM DRC, BSE ------> DRC, BSE
I cannot get this to work and cannot use Text To column as there is no character I can use to split it.
Is there any way to remove the first part of a string of text in a cell and save the second part?
The first part of the text string is a team code that has a variable number of numbers, capital letters and sometimes spaces. The second part of the text string is a variable number of words in a team name that all start with a capital letter and have lower case letters. Every line has a different team code and team name.
The original spreadsheet also has a column with just team code. Is there a way of using this column to "subtract" the team code from the text string to just leave the team name?
I have "inherited" an Excel workbook from someone that is really unwieldy in presentation and difficult to read. I want to break it down and reorder some of the tables and information. To do this I need to copy/ cut parts of different sheets into others. When I do this, I'm finding that I get reference errors even though the source documents are the same.
