I have a spreadsheet with 900 rows. All of the rows hold different information. The first column has contents such as this:
This is the text (please remove me) This is some more text (I need to be removed too)
I want to remove from every cell, everything in the brackets - so everything from the first open brackets to the end of the cell contents). Every cell is a different length and the information within the brackets is different.
I am importing data into excel from another application. I place the data on a sheet and then use macros to re-arrage the data to another sheet. One column of cells gets populated with strings of the following format <text1>(<text2>) I would like to extract <text2> and place it in a cell on another sheet. the length of text1 and text2 varies.
I am importing into Excel a list of contacts from a txt file so I can make a mailing label database. I am able to seperate out the various parts of the address just fine but here's where it gets tricky.
Below is a example of the text I am importing: Mr Dow Jones, 600 DIXON ROAD, TORONTO, ON M9W 1J1, CANADA (1-416-6757611)
I need Excel to look at the cell containing the country name and: 1st. see if there is a phone number present (this is the numbers between the () and if there is - place the phone number in Cell F1 and place the Country in Cell E1 but strip out both the () and the phone number. If there is no phone number present (and therefore no () I need Excel to go ahead and place the country name in E1
I'm trying to enclose a variable declared as string with a numeric value within parentheses. here's the code I have...
Dim strQuery As String, strPortIP As String strQuery = Application.InputBox(Prompt:="Please enter the port or IP you want:", Title:="Query Input", Type:=2) strPortIP = Application.InputBox(Prompt:="Is this a port or IP?",Title:= "Query Type", Type:=2)
If strPortIP = "Port" Or "port" Then strQuery = "(" & strQuery & ")"
I'm getting run-time error '13': type mismatch on the "If..." statement. I'm trying to set the variable strQuery to "(80)", for example, to do a Find within my data. Without the "()" I get ALL occurrences of "80" and that's not what I need...
For a spreadsheet that contains info with opening and closing parentheses in the cells I'm testing on, I am having problems getting multiple IF statements to work together in the same formula. I can get them to work separately in different cells, but when I try to combine them in the same cell, I get the #VALUE error. Here is what I'm working with:
In cell G7 I have the text: Fort Fraser (1) In cell H7 I have the formula: =IF((RIGHT(G7,1)=")")*AND(MID(G7,LEN(G7)-2,1)="("),LEFT(G7,LEN(G7)-4),G7)
In cell G8 I have the text: Fort St. James (11) In cell H8 I have the forumla: =IF((RIGHT(G8,1)=")")*AND(MID(G8,LEN(G8)-3,1)="("),LEFT(G8,LEN(G8)-5),G8)
Both formulas work correctly by discarding the parentheses and everything in between, as well as the space before the opening parenthesis. As you can see, the first formula will work with a single digit in the parentheses, and the second works with two digits. It's just when I try to combine the two tests in the same formula (editing the second one so it also tests on G7) that I get the #VALUE error. I have tried using OR to combine the two tests.
macro find parenthesis and remove string in every other cell in Col.A The following formula works but is tedious to apply to every other cell: =LEFT(A3,FIND("(",A3)-2) Data Example: Cell Value A2 = hello world I am A2 (this is an example) Cell Value A3 = hello world I am A2
Then Delete the entire row A2 and apply this to every other A.Col.cell with the original data.
I have a list of Surnames in Column D, e.g. ANDERSON, BROWN, COOPER, but for some reason, who ever input the data, decided to include the salutation after that Surname, in brackets, where it was available, e.g. ADAMS (Miss), BUTTON (Mr & Mrs), COX (Dr).
So I'm trtying to remove everything within the brackets (if there is anything) and place it in Column C. I will then Replace the brackets and Trim the contents in Column D. Here is what I want the code to do
However it added a "." to all positive and negative numbers regardless of whether there were decimals after it.
10 displayed as 10. -30 displayed as (30.)
In otherwords - I am trying to find the "general" format and modify it to include brackets for negative number, and also modify it so that the positive numbers aligning with the negative numbers with the ) over hanging.
I have found a very useful UDF for removing non-alpha characters from strings. (See below, Credit for posting to Stanley D Grom - Ozgrid post ´Removing Non-alpha Characters From Text´).
Private Function RemoveCharacters(InString As String) As String Dim intLoopCounter As Integer Dim intStringLength As Integer Dim intASCIIVal As Integer intStringLength = Len(InString) InString = LCase(InString) For intLoopCounter = 1 To intStringLength intASCIIVal = Asc(Mid(InString, intLoopCounter, 1)) If intASCIIVal >= 97 And intASCIIVal <= 122 Then RemoveCharacters = RemoveCharacters + Mid(InString, intLoopCounter, 1) End If Next intLoopCounter End Function
1. Could the UDF be modified such that any part of a string contained within brackets is also removed (e.g. "NLGA High Street (West-Enfield), EN6" becomes "nlgahighstreeten")?
2. Can an argument be added to the format of the UDF, such that numbers (0 to 9) are either included or excluded (e.g. RemoveCharacters(A1,1) where the argument ´1´ would include any numbers (0 to 9), so "NLGA2003 High Street (West-Enfield), EN6" becomes "nlga2003highstreeten6")? ´blank´or ´0´would exclude these numbers, i.e. would return "nlgahighstreeten"
I have a formula which I've been working on which utilizes a lot of defined names and INDIRECT functions. I have been parsing out the segments of the formula to figure out which section is incorrect, and I think it is from the last SUMPRODUCT on. I think I have a parenthesis issue.
I have a excel file, I need to remove the first two digits if they are certain numbers, such as 12. For example, if the number is 12987654, then I need remove 12, and it will be "987654" , but if it is not 12 in the first two digits, then keep it no change, for example if it is 345678, then keep it.
I barely work with Excel formulas, now I need connect the excel file with my Database table. I need to make the file matches the DB.
I have a list of numbers in Column A that I always copy into another sheet. The problem I have is that some of these numbers end in "+" and I can't use them when it has that. I have to go through and one by one take out the plus. I was wondering if it was possible to copy only the numerical values to a new column?

Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;Actually I just figured it out. I did a text to columns with a + sign as the separator and it worked.
Right now, I am using an index match to find a name. It returns it correctly, but is there something I can add to formula to to return the name, and put the name in parenthesis. Example: currently it returns name Chile, but I want (Chile).
I have about 10000 cells of varying length in text and numbers but they all end with numbers on the ends of them. Using text to columns doesn't work because they're all different lengths and it cuts them off in the wrong place.
Is there a formula I can use that will return only the text from these cells and remove the numbers. It would definitely save me time from individually deleting the numbers at the end.
I'm trying to clean up a very large list of last names. Only one individual cell, but that cell includes numbers, decimal points, and spaces inbetween the numbers. All I want left in the cell is the last name. I have just under 100,000 to do! How would I go about this? Using Excel 2007.....
