Parse Name & Number From Text String

Jan 11, 2008

I receive a text file daily of between 100 to 50,000 rows. It is a combination of many smaller text files or " records". Each record contains a row containing the name and some particulars . From 1 to 5 rows below that row there may or may not be a row containing the score for that record.

Here is an example of what the rows look like;

4505329 64036593 150090 MS MARY SMITH AB Finished
CRP 3.0 SCORE: 400

From the first row I need to pull out the second string of digits (ex 64036593) and the person's name. From the second row I need to extract the score (400). I would like to copy the three pieces of information to 3 separate columns on another sheet.
Comments
1. the word "Finished" always appears at the end of the row with the name in it but it also appears at the end of every record in it's own row like this;
Finished No Note
2. the strings of digits in the first row can vary in length but there are always 3 of them and they are always seperated by spaces.

I need to extract all the names and scores and put them in a table. If a name is not followed by a score I need to put "no score".

Parse Text String

Mar 3, 2007

I need to parse text strings and format them.

The string looks like this and runs down an unknown number of rows in one column, Col A.

+000800-000900+00123456-000800+0012345650+000700

I want to parse this so that the results will be text to columns

80.0 90.0 1234.56 80.0 1234.56 50 70.0

I want to thank BrettH for creating this VB. I want to manipulate it to read every row in Col A that has data, and then I want to parse the data as shown above. BrettH's VB works but I couldn't modify it to read all the rows that had data. I tried looping the rows using a counter loop and also a For Each loop, but could'nt get it to work.

Sub ParseInCellMath()
Dim DefaultRange As String, UserRange As Range, OrigForm As String
Dim TempForm As String, NegString As String, NegStart As Integer

Loop And Parse All Occurrences Of Text After Text In A String

Nov 29, 2011

I am working on modifying this code (below) that I found here: VB Macro to search webpage for text string

Code:

Option Explicit
Public stResultstr As String
Sub SearchForString()
Dim rngURL As Range
Dim cll As Range
Dim stCheck As String
Dim xmlHttp As Object

[Code]...

So right now I have the script prompt you for a URL range, then it asks you for what you want to search for, and I have it set to return the next 10 characters from that found point.

You can see here:

Code:

If InStr(1, stResult, stCheck, vbBinaryCompare) > intt Then
intt = InStr(1, stResult, stCheck, vbBinaryCompare) + Len(stCheck)

I began to create something to identify the last position of the found item because next I want to loop it to find the next occurance of the same thing and return the next 10 characters after it in the next cell to the right in that same row:

Code:

cll.Offset(, 1).Value = stResultstr

Again, what I want to do here is find and parse out every occurence of a string (inputbox) found on a web page url in column A. The parse occurrences will go to the right in cells C though ? for row N.

Extract Number From Text String?

Apr 28, 2014

Below is a sample of data I need to extract the 8 digit number:

WO_32092_56228491_575482-113476-WP55
WO_32092_56228491_115130-WP55
WO_32092_56228491_115116-115118/115117-WP55

WO_17368_50885431-A-ADDMISSINGPOLE
WO_11021_52350485brock3377
In a spreadsheet, I had set up three columns where:

A: removed first three characters. WO_32092_56228491_115130-WP55 to 32092_56228491_115130-WP55
B: removed up to the _ . 32092_56228491_115130-WP55 to 56228491_115130-WP55
C: captured the first 8 characters left. 56228491_115130-WP55 to 56228491

I am pulling the data into Excel via an ODBC where there is thousands of rows of data. The three column process puts a tremendous strain on the processor.

Is there a formula that will extract the 8 character number without a three step process?

Find Number Within A Text String Using VBA

Sep 4, 2009

I have a list of English game results with the score and the soccers of the game.

E.g. : [Steinsson 34, Davies 41, Elmander 46; Fuller 91]

As you can see in the excel, what Im trying to do is to find the time i.e which is the numbers in the field and display them seperately onto the cells beside. So what i need is to Find and extract these numbers 34,41,46,91 and paste them just beside cell on the list.

I can use formula but i can only display 1 number, so i think this might require a VBA script.Thanks in advance guys..

How To Pull Certain Number From Text String

Jul 16, 2012

I'm trying to pull a specific 10 digit number from a text string. The ID # is always 10 digits however sometimes there are dates in the data that need to be excluded as well as other numbers such as "I-9". The 10 digit number will always start with 1 or 8. Is there a macro or Formula to extract this data? Please find the example dataset below.

Edit: I should specify I want the "100118416" number from the first cell example or the "800011320" number from the 10th example.

Finding A Number Within A Text String

Oct 28, 2007

I want to find a number within a text string, then count the letters in the same string, then add the number to the number of letters.

For example, if I have 9RR in a cell, I want to add 9 + 2 = 11.

The data will always be arranged with the number on the left side of the string.

So, if the number is a single digit, I know I can use left(A1) + len(A1) -1 to get my desired result. But, the trouble I am having is what if there is a double digit number like 10RR...I'm not quite sure how to create a formula (without using VBA) to give me a result of 12 for this cell.

Returning Number From Text String

Jul 24, 2007

I have been trying a few formulas to return numbers from a string of text. The problem I am having is that there are more than one set of numbers that I need returned.

Here is an example of the text entered in F2

"K2PT bus structure [2 locations] & strain structure South West of L9L12-12 [1 location] / Use #4/0, std, cu conductor, connector Cat ID#10842 at structure leg & connector Cat ID#9655 at #4/0, std, cu gnd loop to connect #4/0, std, cu gnd loop to str leg."

What I need returned in a cell H2 is the numbers beside the Cat ID#

10842, 9655

I tried a Return Right Value formula, but I think because there are more than one possible value it isn't working properly.

Removing Dash From Text Number String?

Oct 3, 2010

We often get spreadsheets from our customer that are formatted with both comma and dash combinations. We would like to only have the comma seperation.

Example:
R1, R2, R3-R5, R30

Result:
R1, R2, R3, R4, R5, R30

There is usually only one alpha character but sometimes more. Example: CR1, CR2, CR3-CR5.

The following macro works great if there are no alpha characters. how to solve the alpha/numeric combination?

Function Nums(rng As Range) As String
Dim adnum As Integer, n As Integer, num, Txt As String
num = Split(rng, ",")

Extracting Phone Number Out Of String Of Text?

Apr 30, 2013

Is there a way to extract a phone number out of a string of text. The phone number will always be expressed the same way (eight digits seperated by a space half way through) - 9999 9999. But the text before and after the number is random. Is there a macro to do this on a large scale? The method needs to be applied to hundreds of these strings, each on a new line.

An example of the string of text with the phone number underlined:

Alesdro 0 63PnantCey4281 5919 Aledio daSisaon' Brglry

Collect Text & Parse Across Columns

Oct 18, 2007

I was wondering how I would go about witting a vba for that can be connected to a button which would allow me to enter a row of input.
Some of these values I would like entered for example are: Quantity, Shape, Weight, length....
I would like the user to be prompted to enter these values and then have these values entered into columns, ABC... in a row on the spread sheet.

The catch is I would like this new date to be entered on one sheet via its weight (so that lightest material is on top), on another sheet in this workbook entered via its location so material in the same locations are adjacent to one another, and then finally I would like this updated onto another worksheet.
