Have problems using find and the Dictionary
What Im trying to do is find a certain word in a string then return the number associated with that word
how to automatically remove the word " Total" that Excel puts beside what you are totalling while using a subtotal?
For example, I am totaling a value of orders for one company and Excel puts "COMPANY NAME Total". Or is there a way to use the Right function to delete the 5 last letters of text in a cell? I've tried using the right function but can't seem to get it to work to delete text...
I have the function below from http://www.ozgrid.com/VBA/extract-words-function.htm
and have it working exactly as it's supposed to. Is it possible to adapt this to remove the last character of the text string, specifically the commas? My problem is that the raw data in one cell is like this (including commas) 0.333, 5.8874, 6.85423, 0.025. I separate each text string into separate cells but am left with the commas. I'm not using the "Data Text to Columns" option as I need the results in specific cells so they can then be used in calculations.
Function Get_Word(text_string As String, nth_word) As String
Dim lWordCount As Long
lWordCount = Len(text_string) - Len(.Substitute(text_string, " ", "")) + 1
If IsNumeric(nth_word) Then
nth_word = nth_word - 1
Get_Word = Mid(Mid(Mid(.Substitute(text_string, " ", "^", nth_word), 1, 256), _
. Find("^", .Substitute(text_string, " ", "^", nth_word)), 256), 2, _
.Find(" ", Mid(Mid(.Substitute(text_string, " ", "^", nth_word), 1, 256), _ ............................
I am working on a macro and, as part of it, I would like to look at column A of my spreadsheet and remove all cell contents where the text in the cell does not start with the word "total." For instance, if the text of a cell in column H is "total money" I would like it to remain unchanged. However, if the text of a cell is "George Baker" I would like it removed. I ONLY want the text in column H to be considered ... no other column.View 3 Replies View Related
I need to replace the second word in a cell with another,
eg in cell AI1 I have Black Box.
Which formula would retain the first word, before the space and replace it with another, eg
I have put a formula in excel to count how many times the word 'administration' appears in a column:
Unfortunately, the output that I am searching has mulitple words in it, separated with a colon and no space. My formula skips the count if the word Administration is not completely on it's own
e.g. Administration counts 1
Administration;Cardiology does not count
I have random text strings which I need to extract the last part from in Excel.
The text string will be made up of code, but the word I need is always to the right of a prefix />
So for instance in A1 I have 76ruihfo:;.>6">/apple
I would want to extract "apple" from the string above into B1.
I want to delete a specific words from string but i have a problem with the code below.

so it should be: Cat jumped over Lazy Dog
Proper capitalizes first letter of every word, just want one word capitalizaed.

where just Jumped and Lazy are capitalized.
I currently have a large amount of data extracted from a performance tracking system. The columns I am concerned with are Page Title and Time (the time it takes the system to navigate to the this page).
I am trying to create a dashboard to show:
Webpage Title (each unique instance of the webpage)Aggregate Time (total time it takes for all instances)# of Hits (Each time the value appears in the data)Average Time (this formula I can handle; Aggregate Time/# of Hits)
The major issue is that the webpage is extracted as XYZ001 -- PAGE1, XYZ439 -- PAGE2, XYZ854 -- PAGE1, etc. Basically, I am only concerned with what comes after the --.
Here is an example of the two tabs.
# of Hits
Basically, I am looking for a formula that says,
For any instance in the Page Title column that contains PAGE3, add the amount in the Time column (i.e., 1.2 +.5).

I'm trying to remove everything after a specific character in a string.
I.e. change a website address to the hostname
I'm using this formula, which strips the http:// and the www., but does not replace the characters after the first remaining "/" as the wildcard is not recognized.
=SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(A2,"www.",""), A2,"http://",""), A2, "/*", "")
I'm attempting to extract the Street Names from an Address.
For Example, if given "123 Very Big Street" I'd want to extract "Very Big".
If given, "123 Very Big" I'd want the same answer.
I've written code to do this, with a simple IF statement to identify mathcing last words like "Street" and "Drive".
How can I efficiently do this with a large list of last words? I'm drawing a blank on how to query against an array that would contain all these values.
If someone enters "1,000" in a TextBox, Isnumeric(TextBoxEntry) says True
If I convert it to a value with something like x = TextBoxEntry * 0, the 1,000 becomes 1
I would prefer it to be 1000. Just removing commas would do the trick. How to do it.
The below function concats a range of cells by csv. How can I get it to remove the last comma in the string when it's finished?

I have a list of data that populates B2:B2900
This data is often prefixed by a 'reference code' that I wish to be removed.
Now rater than perform this manually aprox 3000 times is there a formula or some VB code that will complete this for me....
The list of data is shown like:
SC7547-05 - Payne, Freda
SC8706-08 - Rungren, Todd
SC8714-05 - Travis, Randy
SC7517-03 - Beach Boys, The
Now You're Gone
SC7512-01 - Horton, Johnny
SC8721-15 - Journey
So I wish for the SC7547-05 - to be removed from the first example to just leave Payne, Freda and continue this throughout the list
However if the data is found not to include this code (as in the 5th/6th examples above) leave it alone
So if the code of formula is run for the above the outcome would be....
Beach Boys, The

I have a set of data in column a that consists of email addresses. These email addresses all have underscores after them, ie "firstname.lastname@example.org_______". It will be a different amount of underscores everytime and I don't want underscores to be removed that are actually part of the address. I had been using the find replace function through vba, ie
Selection.Replace What:="_", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
however this ofcourse removes from actual parts of the email address. Is there a way to do this?
I've come across multiple times where I have to do this same sort of task, and I don't think I am doing it the most efficient way.
What I need to do is take a variable which holds a string and remove the last 9 characters from it. Don't need to know what the last 9 characters are, all I care about is knowing what the other characters are in the string. I know this can be done through thingslike susbstrings, but I don't think VBA has a substring function.

I would like to use conditional formatting to highlight cells which have the same first 16 characters (yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm) before the "@" AND that contains the words "CHANGE WORLD". Therefore, I'm looking for a formula I could include in the conditional formatting so I can easily find the "CHANGE WORLD" that occurred at the same time (minus the seconds, they may vary slightly).

I have a list of about 1,400 numbers ranging in different lengths. What I'm trying to accomplish with a formula is to remove the single letter at the end of each number (not all numbers have them) and in addition to removing all zeros at the beginning of the number (again not all numbers have them).
Here is an example...say I have the following 5 numbers:
