Remove Parenthesis (Brackets) From Numbers

Feb 3, 2009

I have a spread sheet with 2000 fax numbers in the format:
(555) 123-1234

I am going through and reformatting them to read:

555123-1234 or 5551231234

Is there cell format code or some way to do this quickly rather than going through each cell and deleting the spaces and ()?

Remove Text With Brackets & The Parenthesis

Oct 23, 2007

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.

Remove Text Inside Parenthesis & The 2 Brackets

Dec 15, 2007

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.

Remove Numbers & Brackets In Parentheses

Oct 11, 2007

I tried to use the find and replace function to delete different numbers from different cells (all in one column) but the problem is that I want to delete different kind of numbers.

Let me give you an example:

Starting point:

Cell A1: Bookrunner: Barclays Capital(368.726m)
Cell A2: Bookrunner: DBS(368m)
Cell A3: Mandated Arranger: Commonwealth Bank of Australia (Singapore)(367.163m)
Cell A4: Mandated Arranger: DnB NOR ASA (Singapore)(367.163m)

I want to reach here:

Cell A1: Bookrunner: Barclays
Cell A2: Bookrunner: DBS
Cell A3: Mandated Arranger: Commonwealth Bank of Australia (Singapore)
Cell A4: Mandated Arranger: DnB NOR ASA (Singapore)

(I don’t want the information in “()” like “(Singapore)” to be deleted! Only the “()” which contains numbers)

I used the “find and replace” function to delete ever single number, but I think it’s a little unprofessional to do so!

Calculate Number In Brackets/Parenthesis

Jul 28, 2006

Is it possible to extract a number in brackets specifically from a cell, then increase it by 15%, and return the result back into the brackets.

For example the cell consists the following:
Mary (78)

so the aim is to get the 78 out for calculation, then change the content of the cell with the new result.

Or is there a macros that can be created for this?

Extract Data In Brackets/Parenthesis

Jun 9, 2007

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

Enclose & Display Variable Within Parenthesis/Brackets

Apr 23, 2008

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...

Remove Data In Parenthesis

Nov 24, 2008

Suppose I have data in a range that was imported from "somewhere". Some of the data is preceded by team rankings in so:

(21) Boston College
Notre Dame
(10) Oklahoma
Florida State
(2) Florida State

I want to strip the data of the team rankings, (as well as any brackets and spaces before the team name). Is there a macro I could write to do this?

Remove Parenthesis & Text Within From Range

Feb 21, 2008

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.

Formatting Numbers To Have Negative In Brackets?

Apr 2, 2014

I am currently using the following format to display numbers in my excel.

_(* #,###,###_);_(* (#,###,###);_(* "-"_);@

The brackets and underscores are used so that the positive and negative numbers align with overhanging brackets.

I want to modify the format such that it is able to display decimals where ever applicable.

For example

1,000 display as 1,000
0 display as a dash "-"
1.265 display as 1.265
-0.51 display as (0.51)

I tried changing it to:

_(* #,###,###.###_);_(* (#,###,###.###);_(* "-"_);@

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.

Remove Non-alpha Characters From Alphanumerics With Option To Remove Numbers

Aug 8, 2009

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´).

Option Explicit

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

Two requests:

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.

Remove Numbers From Alphanumeric Cells

Sep 17, 2008

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.
