Parse Data From One Cell To Multiple Cells

Dec 7, 2009

I need to prepare a lot of data for upload from Excel to a system. Example, In cell A1: I have very long text that I need to parse into B1, C1, D1, etc, depending on the length as each cells can support up to 40 characters only.

It seems easy as I can just find the length of A1 and use mid to parse them to the rest of the cells. But the sales person wants the data to be readable, meaning that I can't just split the data simply based on the character limits.

Parse Cell Data Into Multiple Columns

Apr 15, 2014

VBA code (or formulas) that can parse data from individual cells into multiple columns? I have attached a file noting the current inputs in columns A-F and the desired outputs in columns I-O. Additionally, I have noted the distinguishing criteria for each of the fields in cells I13-O13. Also, I noticed that each of the data points in the input cells are separated by at least two spaces. Lastly, the input data in the working sheet goes from columns A-H and the desired outputs would start from column I; with row 1 having the headers.

Read And Import Multiple Text Files Into Excel And Parse Data?

Mar 27, 2014

I am trying to determine a way to quickly import data from text files into Excel and place data in suitable columns (under correct headings). I am thinking I could be asked which file to read and import doing them 1 by 1, or if there is an automated way to cycle through all the files that would be more efficient (filenames are variable).

From the text files I have attached I can tell the column headers and what data should go under each. Not sure how you would describe the delimiting on these files? Are these files in a format that VBA could be used to reduce manual copy and paste approach? I have about 300 of these files I want to extract the data from.

Note: the attached files are from a public access website.

Read Pdf Or Doc File Line By Line And Then Parse Data Into Proper Cells And Rows?

Feb 23, 2013

I have the data to import / read in a pdf, in a doc, or in an Excel worksheet whichever is easier to use. I need to import the data, parse it into the correct cells for that row and then repeat the import until the end of the file. Not all the cells are in each group of data to import, so those cells will be null for that row. Some of the data for one cell may be in up to 14 lines in the data file. I have be concatenating these data rows into one cell. There are 48,000 lines in the file to import or I would do this manually. I am assuming that doing this in VBA would be the most efficient method.

Parse Information Across Multiple Columns

Aug 14, 2005

I have data that I copy from one sheet and move it to another. If I know I'm parsing data that may vary in amount of line items but will always be across 3 columns is there a way to parse this data evenly.

for example:
I would like to look in column "D" and if there is an "A" I would like to parse cells A,B,C in that row to sheet 2 and parse this information evenly across 3 columns evenly across columns "A,E, I"
In my example the data is only 21 rows of information the problem I have is evenly parsing this information.

Pull Data From Multiple Cells And Concatenate In Single Cell Using Multiple Criteria

Aug 31, 2012

I have a worksheet entitled 'Data'. In this worksheet there is a table consisting of 4 columns plus relevant data:

TABLE 1:

Project
Benefit Type
Delivered or Enabled
Benefit

PJ1
Financial
Delivered
Saving of $4M over 24 months.

[code]....

I have been trying to create a formula that will enable me to pull data from the 'benefit' column(column D) so that the cell contents populate in a single cell in a table in a different worksheet.

TABLE 2:

Financial - Delivered
Financial - Enabled
Tech - Delivered
Tech - Enabled
Green - Delivered
Green - Enabled

[code]....

So, as an example, I am hoping that a formula can be created which pulls the text from relevant cells in column D when criteria from columns A, B and C are met e.g. Tech benefits that are Delivered in PJ2 would populate cell E3 ('Tech -Enabled') in Table 2 with:

Continued maintenance of hardware.

Increased capacity.

Parse Multiple Files For Matching Records.

Jun 16, 2006

I need to use a macro to import data from an unknown # of order files to my master spreadsheet. My master spreadsheet & my order files contain a unique po number that can be used to find matching records. When the macro is ran & a match is found it needs to import the all data that to the master spreadsheet & updated the "processed" column for the record found. Also, all the lines in the unprocessed order files should be matched up. If a record is not matched, a warning needs to be displayed. If the record has already been processed, it just needs to be skipped. Attached is an example master spreadsheet & an example unprocessed orders spreadsheet. If at all possible, please split the unprocessed orders into separate files when testing the final product. The part that I will struggle with the most is looping thru separate files.

Best Way To Parse Colums And Rows W/ Multiple Values Separated By Comma?

Dec 14, 2009

I routinely have do download massive data sets of reporting that is saved as an excel spreadsheet. The three columns of sample data attached are Report Numbers, Report Evaluation Serial Numbers, and Report Evaluator ID.

As seen in the attached spreadsheet, there can be multiple Report Numbers (in same field separated by comma) which have been evaluated by different Evaluators. It is my responsibility to account for the number of Reports that have been evaluated, and many other metrics from like data. The issue I have is when more than one report number is listed in the same field I need to parse the data into its own field for ease of counting (and also maintain the adjacent data). It is not a problem to merely copy the fields and delete the excess numbers, however when dealing with thousands of Reports, and Evaluators this can be very time consuming. In the attached file I have separated .xls into three workbooks to help explain my problem: Initial state of Data; What I need To Parse Out; and The final endstate I require. I hope that I have explained this issue with enough detail. I am sure that the attached file will explain better.

Parse Flat File And Enter It Into Separate Cells

Jul 12, 2012

I receive a flat text file every week which I would like to grab with excel and extract only the data I need and enter the data into separate cells and loop until I reach the end of the flat file. I got a subroutine written that allows me to open my text file and it will enter all the data however I need to know how to parse only the stuff I need and enter it into the right cells and loop until I reach the end of my text file. Here is what I have so far:

Sub testFSNew()
Dim fs As Object ' scripting.filesystemobject
Dim txtIn As Object ' scripting.textstream
Dim strFile As String 'File Name
Dim strLine As String 'Current line being read.

[code].....

Now so far this opens the text file and dumps all the data into an excel spreadsheet however when I say all I mean it dumps everything into the first cell and does not separate it, the following is an example of the text in the flat file. I will only put in the first 5 rows because their is 5000 rows in the real file.

Ok so the first problem is I don't need the first line it's a header line and if you will notice everyline of the file ends with either a 5 or a 4 but it is information about each employee, so the next line would end in a 5 and that would be the beginning of the next employee.

P.S. I noticed in the preview post that this message board truncated my flat file data, so keep in mind that each line is indeed 1 line ending in either 5 or a 4

File Too Big...way To Parse Out Data And Write To Csv

Feb 12, 2010

I have a file with multiple tabs of data...lot's of data (each tab has 80,000+ lines and 23 columns...3 are formulas, the rest is imported data). I've brought Excel to it's knees (i.e. crashes). Yes, I'm using 2007.

What I'm trying to do is extract 6 cells of data from every 10th line and write it out to a CSV file with two more pieces of information (same for each line).

What I was doing was creating a separate worksheet for each one to be extracted, parsing out the data, and then copying that data to yet another workbook that was then saved as a CSV.

First, in retrospect, that was a waste of time. Second, the addition of the extra worksheets to do the parsing was crashing Excel due to the extreme size of the workbook.

What I'd like to do is use a macro to do all of this in one swell foop:

1) Prompt me for a file name (or I can put the desired name in a cell and read it from there if that simplifies the code)
2) Open a new text file with that name and ".csv" extension in the same folder as the original workbook
3) Write out the column headers: (Fix, Satellites, Lat, Lon, alt (ft), Date, utc_t, course)
4) Step through each row, looking at the text contents of column B (looks like 22:50:07.100)...if it ends in ".000" do the following:
4a) write "PPS,4," to the open text file
4b) write the cell contents from columns "V", "W", "J", "C", "B", and "L" to the text file in the exact format they appear in the text cell.

The output file should look like (very short example):

Fix,Satellites,Lat,Lon,alt (ft),Date,utc_t,course
PPS,4,30.543203,-86.323328,1419.04,2009/12/17,23:26:22.000,243.95
PPS,4,30.539272,-86.332765,1831.53,2009/12/17,23:26:34.000,242.61

Parse Delimited PDF Data Into Worksheet

Feb 11, 2008

I have a PDF document with an income statement that I'm trying to bring into excel. When I copy it, it puts all of the information in 1 column like this: NET INCOME 183,450 (237,660) 421,110 177 (1,461,273) (1,769,800) 308,526 17
CAPITAL EXPENDITURES Land Improvements 0 0 0 35,000 0 (35,000) Building Improvements 7,500 0 (7,500) 243,129 626,500 383,371 61. I cannot use text to columns, because the CATEGORIES are different in length (3 to 4 to 5 words at times).

I can seperate the numbers from the words, but I can't seperate the numbers from one another. Is there any way that I can do this via a text fuction?

*Example*
0 0 0 35,000 0 (35,000)
7,500 0 (7,500) 243,129 626,500 383,371 61

Merging Multiple Data Cells Into One Cell?

Oct 24, 2013

I have a spreadsheet where I am trying to add up codes and quantitys, after this I want the repeated info deleted. For example;

12.004RWHB 4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush
12.004RWHB 4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush
20.004RWHB 4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush
24.004RWHB 4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush
4.004RWHBSS4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush S/S
10.004RWHBSS4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush S/S
12.004RWHBSS4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush S/S

So what I want to do is add the numbers up so I can get one value. For example, 4RWHB I want to add them all up so that it totals 68 still shows the code and description but then only shows 68 4RWHB 4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush and not the same line repeated. I want to condense all the information down so where there is same model numbers I can add it up and it doesn't give me multiples but summarises it down into one line per model number.

Military Time - Parse Cell Contents

I am parsing a cell that contains the date and time; "2013-05-20 13:20:39" and it reads this way in the active cell. In the formula bar it reads; "2013-05-20 1:20:39 PM" and looks that same way when I use text to columns. What do I do to keep the time in military time (i.e. the way it appears in the cell) when I parse the cell contents?

Macro That Will Auto Color Multiple Cells Based On Data Displayed In One Cell

Jan 7, 2013

I am trying to find a way to write a Macro that will auto color multiple cells based on what data is displayed in one cell. The cell I want to reference is a vlookup cell.

Basically this is a part label. And depending what part is selected from the list my vlookup will display its position on a vehicle(i.e.. FR, FL, RR, RL, Etc..). So if vlookup comes back with FR I want the various cells on the label to be orange, etc..

ALSO: if there is a way to embed it so it does this automatically (rather than run the macro each time).

Search Multiple Criteria If Match Append Multiple Cells To One Cell?

Apr 28, 2012

I am having such a difficult time creating a macro that will reduce the 5+hours I have to spend each week manually copying & pasting all of this data. I making an IMMENSE difference in this worker bee's life!

I have a workbook with two sheets (Sheet1 & Sheet2). Sheet1 has license #'s in column A and the state that the license belongs to in column B like this:

COLUMN ACOLUMN B11111Alaska11112Alabama11113Arkansas11114Arkansas
Sheet2 has three columns. Column A has the license #'s, column B has the state that the license belongs to and Columns C shows a line-of-authority tied to that license #.

COLUMN ACOLUMN BCOLUMN
C11111AlaskaProperty11111AlaskaCasualty11112AlaskaLife11112AlaskaHealth11112
AlabamaProperty11112AlabamaCasualty11113ArkansasLife11113ArkansasHealth11114
ArkansasLife11114ArkansasHealth12345ArizonaProperty

I'm trying to write a macro that will compare the license # and state in Sheet1 to the license # and state in Sheet2. If it matches, append the contents of Column C to the corresponding row in Sheet1.

Here's the thing...Sheet2 contains the entries for all licenses in the company (so this table is HUGE). And there are multiple entries for each state license # (notice how there's two entries above for AK license # 11111 - one for the Property line and one for the Casualty line.

After my macro is run, I want Sheet1 to show all the lines-of-authority on a single line. So if I ran my macro on the above example, after it's run I would have this in Sheet1:

COLUMN ACOLUMN BCOLUMN

Excel 2007 :: Multiple Lines In One Cell To Multiple Cells?

Mar 24, 2012

I have a column of cells with Customer info and address in each row, that I need to move into multiple columns. ie Cust name, acct #,address, city,state, zip the problem is ALL of the info for each customer is in ONE cell.To be clear, cell B1 has complete name address etc for one customer, B2 has the info for another, B3... on and on. To complicate matters as in the example, there is not a pattern in the lines. the first example shows the info beginning on the 2nd line of the cell, but the 2nd example shows info in the first line. I have tried the text to column fixed width. Didn't work because names and addresses are of varying lengths. Then I tried delimited, but there isn't a common separation between different data. I am using excel 2007. FYI I did go through many many threads and found some that were close to my problem but not close enough to work.
