Remove The Word

May 31, 2006

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...

Extract Nth Word & Remove 1 Character

Jun 15, 2007

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
With Application.WorksheetFunction
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), _ ............................

Remove Cell Content Based Upon Not Starting With A Word

Jun 16, 2008

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.

Formula To Add All Of Times If Text String Contains Word

Jun 11, 2013

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.

DASHBOARD TAB:

Page Title
Aggregate Time
# of Hits
Avg. Time
PAGE1

[Code]...

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).

Remove Characters From Right Of String

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.

Remove Part Of String

Oct 29, 2009

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....

eg

The list of data is shown like:

SC7547-05 - Payne, Freda
SC8706-08 - Rungren, Todd
SC8714-05 - Travis, Randy
SC7517-03 - Beach Boys, The
Love Song
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....

Payne, Freda
Rungren, Todd
Travis, Randy
Beach Boys, The
Love Song
Now You're Gone
Horton, Johnny
Journey

Remove Characters From End Of String Only

I have a set of data in column a that consists of email addresses. These email addresses all have underscores after them, ie "abc@hotmail.com_______". 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

Range("A:A").Select
Selection.Replace What:="_", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
ReplaceFormat:=False

however this ofcourse removes from actual parts of the email address. Is there a way to do this?

Remove Last X Characters From String

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.

How To Find Duplicated String Before A Character That Contains Specific Word

2014-05-15 15:04:46 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)

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).

Remove Letters And Zeros From String

Oct 20, 2011

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:

8014554
45678456
87451245
0008014554b
0008014554c

And what I need my formula to do provide is the following results instead:

8014554
45678456
87451245
8014554
8014554

So far I have started with the following =LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-1), but that will always remove the last character (number and letter).
