Pulling Specific Text Within Text In Which Information Is Typed Differently?

Aug 2, 2014

I am trying to pull titles out of a text string but its quite difficult because of how the data was originally inputted. I need titles that appear in the following different formats

" title"
title/
title"

These titles were not inputted consistently and it could show up in the middle or at the beginning. I have attached a sample of the data that i am working with and a sample formula that i was trying to use to obtain my information. The formula that i have is a nested formula of find and mid formula that searches for the text within " ".

Text File Import With Text To Columns Splitting Same Text Differently

Nov 21, 2007

I have a macro which imports data from a mainframe dump text file and performs 'Text to Columns' on the imported data so that formula in the spreadsheet can act on the data. The code works perfectly well when I use it, but if a different user logs on and performs exactly the same mainframe dump and import macro the Text to Columns action splits the raw data in a different way and the result is that the split renders the formulae useless.

I've experimented a little and for some reason it appears that the 'Field Info' parameters which are produced when the Text to Columns function is recorded in a macro differ between users even though the raw data is exactly the same.

FieldInfo:= _
Array(Array(0, 1), Array(18, 1), Array(35, 1), Array(56, 1), Array(70, 1), Array(88, 1), _
Array(102, 1))

Extracting Specific Information From Text String To Conform To Format To Upload Into QB

Mar 21, 2014

I have a string of information in an Excel download from PayPal that I need to upload into QB; but, the information needs to be in a different format. The string from the download is:

Property Address - 1116 South PaxonBorrower " Testa and Son Contractors,LLCLoan # - 1402088Acct Executive " Brandon Tully

But, I need it to be:

1402040;TPAPR;141 North Clinton Street, East Orange, NJ 07017;Leslie P Carter

Is there a formula that I can use to extract specific information from the original string into columns so I can then concatenate the columns into the information I need to upload? Or is there a better way to do this? The Property Address and Borrower Name are not static sizes so I can't use a formula that counts spaces.

Pulling Data From Differently Written Names

Nov 4, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with numerous transactions that contain the same name but are often spelled differently or inconsistently. I would like to pull all the transactions with the similar name and in a new sheet, make all the inconsistent ones, the same e.g. (space)mr smith or mr smiths or mr smith's or mr smith would all be mr smith. I am thinking of using the match command as a possibility but want it to repeat each row.

I am attaching a spreadsheet to show the existing table and the desired result which is similar to what I am showing below.

Example:

Existing Names and data
A B C D E
1mr smiths xyz10020%
2 mr smith abc12430%
3mr smith's def20040%
4mr smith xyz7550%
5simon inc zbc14065%
6simon's inc xyz20070%
7simon abc9525%
8shows zbd18045%

Want it to show Names and data:

A B C D E
1mr smithxyz10020%
2mr smithabc12430%
3mr smithdef20040%
4mr smithxyz7550%
5simon inczbc14065%

VLOOKUP And Still Have Typed Text In Cell

Oct 27, 2008

I was wondering if there would be a way to use vlookup and still be able to type text in the same cell. For example, if the vlookup gives me a result of 123. I want it to also pull from a different cell that I've typed in 321. So the resulting cell would show 321-123 or 321 123. I have attached a sample sheet. On sheet two where the 3 items are, I want it to display 321-123 for item 1, 321-234 for item 2, and 321-345 for item 3. The 321 would be dependant on what I type into B1 on the first sheet.

Format Formulas, Constants, Numbers & Text Cells Differently

May 8, 2008

I am attempting to write a VBA function that will add textual formatting to each cell that has content. I am just learning VBA; so far, as an example I have

Sub NewSub()
i = 1
j = 1
Do
Cells(i, j) = "'" & Range(i.j).Value & "',"
i = i + 1
Loop Until i = 40
End Sub

but, as I'm sure you'll notice, it does not work. In essence I want to wrap quotes and follow with a comma each cell that contains any content. The actual content test I haven't gotten to yet.

Change Formatting On One Sheet When Text Is Typed In Another

Jul 28, 2007

I am trying to have one sheet with company names on it and another as a schedule. I have about 20 companies that I need to list on the main schedule sheet. Is there anyway when I type a company name in one sheet, when it copies that cell to the schedule sheet, format that cell to a specified format? I know conditional formatting will work, but it only allows 3. I need around 20. I would just like to change the background color of that cell when the name is typed in.

Format Cell To Always Insert Specific Thing When Specific Name Is Typed?

Apr 4, 2013

Is there a way to format cells to where - when you type in a certain person's first name, it will insert something entirely different?

This has seemed to have happened on a computer at work.

In Excel, when I type in "Martha" then tab, or otherwise leave that cell, Martha changes to "Cool"

If I type in anyone elses name - it stays that name. But if I type in "Martha" .. it changes to "Cool" with the bullet and the word Cool.

Excel 2003 :: Take Specific Text From Cell And Copy It In New One (Text And / Or Words Position Varies)

Jan 17, 2013

I'm having a 6000+ records, (contacts DB) exported in Excel 2003 format from MS Outlook.

Except the "First" and "LastName", all other contact elements are in the field "Notes" (which is the BZ column according to the exported outlook layout) multiplied by 6469 (records in total)

Useful information are included !!!

I'll give an example of a record...

Column: BZ, Row: 543 says --> "2110000000-6989000000, 1TOK_TER:17-11-010(25 DAYS LESS),
KATERINA 25 (MANTAS KALNNNNN_HYPERTENSION)1000-150, W:95_105, , HR THE 16wks_US NEFRON OK,
NT OK_B EPIP OK(GOLF BALL)_KAMPILI ORIAKI(DIAITA)_DOPPLER OK, O+,TEST OK(TOX_), , , , , , "

Now, I want every time to take the part of the text says "TER:something..." (part of which is date, but not every time with the known format dd-mm-yyyy, as you see here is yyy, followed by something else, with parenthesis here and maybe more data) and copy it in a new cell..., e.g:CO Column, same Row...

Above and every field which by the way is formatted as General (and it is text mainly) are made by merging older excel fields where data laid here and there, that's why you see the commas...with the method of a module with the following code:

Function MyMerge(Rng As Range)
For Each Cell In Rng
Temp = Temp & Cell.Value & ", "
Next Cell
Temp = Mid(Temp, 1, Len(Temp) - 2)
MyMerge = Temp
End Function

Note1:Records with the above string (TER:dd-mm-yyy) are 771 from 6469.
Note2: As an alternative solution I can see an extraction of the TER:dd-mm-yyy string and the copy in a new place, like the:CO Column, same Row...

Pulling Out Numbers Without Text?

Mar 25, 2008

Is there a way to pull out numbers from a cell that has letters mixed in with it. I tryed using Right() and Left() with the LEN() function but sometimes I might have (examples: "TP3470" or "9310-AV") and all I want to get is ("3470" and "9310") I also may have (4500SSML). I cannot find anything anywhere on pulling out just numbers or text. Maybe a custom format?

Macro To Only Show Rows That Contain Specific Text/Chinese Text Issue In Visual Basic ( 2007)

Jun 23, 2009

I want to create 3 command buttons (active X) on a worksheet to toggle between showing rows which only contain the below text in column L (range L9:L30) and showing all rows containg the options (However, I also have some blank rows in this range and i always want them to remain hidden.)

My text options are:

High
Medium
Low

The text arrives in the cells via a VLOOKUP

Is the chinese text a problem? i can't type it into VB.

I've been using the following macro to hide and unhide rows with a command button in the same sheet:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Toggle_Hide_Unhide
End Sub

Sub Toggle_Hide_Unhide()
Dim rngCell As Range
Dim TakeAction As Boolean

If ActiveSheet.CommandButton1.Caption = "Hide" Then
TakeAction = True
ActiveSheet.CommandButton1.Caption = "UnHide"
Else
TakeAction = False
ActiveSheet.CommandButton1.Caption = "Hide"
End If

For Each rngCell In ActiveSheet.Range("I9:I30")
With rngCell
If .Value = 2 Then .EntireRow.Hidden = TakeAction
End With
Next rngCell
End Sub

Formula To Find Specific Text And Replace With Alternate Text?

Mar 4, 2014

I have a worksheet with several columns. I need a formula to search column D only and each time a specific location is identified to replace that location with alternate text. Example (ORIGNAL TEXT):

Column Dtext to text help.xlsx
BIRD
FISH
DOG
BAT
BUG

I need to search that listing and each time the word BIRD is mentioned have it replaced with FEATHERS and each time DOG is listed have it replaced with TAILS Final result would look like:

FEATHERS
FISH
TAILS
BAT
BUG

All other text should stay the same and replacement text should appear in the cell of the text it is replacing. This is a sheet used by multiple people several times a day and so the Find/Replace option really won't work.

Have working on this for at least 6 months and it just isn't going to happen for me. I thought I could use a Conditional format, but that is producing no results either.

Pulling Data From A Text Report

Mar 28, 2007

First I copy and paste the text into Excel. All of the data is in column A because of varying lengths, which seems to work fine. I've already written VBA code (shown at the end of this posting) that reads the contents of each cell in column A, pulls out the key information (like the actual error code or invoice #), stores the fields in variables, switches to a separate tab that has a more user-friendly layout, locates the next empty cell in the appropriate column for the field, and puts the variable contents into the cell. I realize that the code currently has some variables that aren't being used and other basic issues, but that's not really what I'm after at this point.

The report itself includes billing errors, with each billing error separated by a series of asterisks. My current code works just fine for sections of the report like the first section in the sample below, where the billing error only contains a single invoice, error code, description, and action item. If the entire report was formatted in that manner, my task would be finished because it does those sections perfectly well.

But...if you notice in the sample report below, the third billing error contains more than one invoice, error code, description, and action item. Obviously, using my current code, when the macro encounters that section, it continues to function, but the rows do not align properly in the separate worksheet because there are extra invoices, error codes, descriptions, and action items. I just cannot figure out a way to have the macro keep the information aligned. In other words, in the third section of the sample report below, the billing error contains more than one invoice and item.

One approach that I've thought of is to try to count the number of rows between the cell containing the previous set of asterisks and the cell containing the next set of asterisks, because it's the information between each set of asterisks that I need to work with. But I haven't found a way to do that and don't even know if that's the direction I need to go or not. I'm pretty much lost at this point.

Here's a sample of the text report as it appears in column A (the fields are actually longer than this - I tried to simplify as much as I could for this posting): ....

Pulling Out Info Based On Text

Jul 23, 2007

I have a regular table of data and dependent on the info within a column of cells I would like the info to appear within one of 3 new sheets. BUT.... I can't figure it out because the info forms an irregular part of text within the cells in a specific column - Obviously if it was dependent on the whole of the text I could use Vlookup but it's not.

If it needs further clarification, a column of cells may have, say, "blahblah234/PLblah" -> If this cell contains within the text "PL" then it should have the whole of the row in the new sheet, if not then blank.

Macro For Spotting Text From One List To Another Then Pulling In Data With Vlookup?

I have a list of active accounts with its relevant data on one sheet, then I have a list of closed/inactive accounts that will be updated periodically by different users. I would like to run a query for the accounts on the closed list to pull in relevant data from the active list,if any, or maybe just highlight the closed accounts on the active list to ensure that the closed accounts aren't active again. Is that possible with a macro? Should it just be a vlookup? The accounts list is going to be a very big file and I am trying to find a solution that won't take up too much time to run.
