# 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).

## Remove Numbers - Leave Letters In A String?

Mar 18, 2014

I would like to take the below strings and remove any numbers and just leave letters. Or extract the payee from the string. If at all possible, I'd prefer this in a formula.

Card Purchase WAL Wal-Mart Sup 320004 0532 WAL-SAMS CENTRAL LA
Card Purchase WAL-MART #0532 053201 308 N AIRLINE HWY CENTRAL LA
Card Purchase LEBLANC'S FOOD S 874301 209 S. AIRLINE HWY CENTRAL LA[code]....

Basically, (the first line above) I'd like to remove the words "Card Purchase" and any numbers...or preferably just leave "Wal-Mart Sup" instead of the full string. I'd like the product of the first line to match the product of the 2nd line.

## Remove Letters From A Column Containing Both Numbers And Letters

Besides putting a space and running text to columns I'm not sure how.

## Data Validation To Exclude Letters But Allow Numbers Beginning With Zeros

Nov 8, 2008

I am using Excel 07 with Vista, and creating a spreadsheet in which users will be inputting a record into every row.

There is a row that requires a number to be entered, where some of the numbers will begin with 0 or 00 or even 0000. I want to make sure no-one incorrectly enters a letter, however with data validation set to whole numbers, it formats the cell to change an entry of "005667" into just "5667". There is no set length for the field.

The only way to have "005667" is the change the column to text, but then obviously that defeats the whole purpose!

## Remove Zeros

Feb 28, 2010

Can anyone suggest a formula that will take a number (a variable amount of placeholders), and remove any trailing zeros.

eg. 6000 = 6, , 23 = 23, 230 = 23, 2300 = 23, 23000 = 23

Also looking for a similar forumla that will strip off any numeric characters from a text string of variable length.

eg ACA2343 = ACA, GNVC23 = GNVC, DAL12 = DAL, CGHJ = CGHJ, CGHJ5002 = CGHJ

## Anyway To Remove Trailing Zeros?

## Remove Preceeding Zeros

Jul 7, 2007

i have a number formate 0000001 and another formate 0000123005

i would like to move only all the zeros on the left side of the number .

i got this code from Dave before:

End Sub

## Find And Remove Letters?

Dec 5, 2011

I can use find and replace to remove the following, however as I would be doing the same process numerous times it would be very tedious.

I would like 2 VBA scripts.

1 - replace the following letters (uppercase & lower) in Column A and C replace A, V, N, Z, X, Q

so if it finds A it would remove A from the cell.

The cells may contain other letters including these one's i.e

A123XCB235 or
123VBN7779A

2 - The second independent code would replace the characters replace A, V, N, Z, X, Q with P, M, L, R, J, H ie. A becomes P, V becomes M etc...

Again the cells may contain other letters including these one's i.e

A123XCB235 or
123VBN7779A

## Macro: Remove Zeros From Array

(12)
(0)
(30)
(0)

NewArray

## If Statement To Remove Lowercase Letters

Aug 4, 2008

I'm having trouble with separate a text string.

The first part of the text is in all uppercases and the latter part is in lower cases as seen below.

## Remove Front Zeros & Add Space Before Last 2 Characters

Jun 13, 2007

I want to remove the front zero(s) from the front and put a space before the last two letters for the following column of data in Excel:

0001MG
0020MG
0100MG
1000MG

Final result will have this format and the data are right aligned.
1 MG
20 MG
100 MG
1000 MG

The numbers can vary (e.g. 0150MG, 0025MG,etc.) but the arrangement is always the same: four figures for the first 4 characters and two letters for the last two characters.
The format of the cells containing the data is: “General”

My table has 7 columns and these data are in the 5th column in a worksheet called “ProductSummary”. The number of rows for the records can vary from 10 to over a couple of hundred.

How can I use VBA to: 1) automatically select the table range in that worksheet and reformat all the data in the 5th column.

## Dividing Letters And Numbers String

Jan 25, 2009

A given string of some letters (from three to five, six) is followed by a single number (1-4). Then it ends, or is followed by another such combination, up to a maximum of, let's say, four.

Example:
xxxx1
yyy3yyyy1
xyzxx1yxz4xzx1
xxx2xxx2xxx2xxx2

What I would like to do is to divide a given chain of characters into the smallest chains which contain only letters and one number. To the examples given above, I'd like to receive the following sets:

xxxx1
yyy3 and yyyy1
xyzxx1 and yxz4 and xzx1
... and so on

Is it somehow possible to do it with simple functions? Or is VB necessary (which sadly I don't know)?

## Converting A String Of Letters In A Row Into Columns

Oct 5, 2009

I have a set of letters in a single row DISATAGFOORCBORDQFINFCOBBKIEHDSMCNRSKARDFCJSLCQCECFVSBCBOYKPVYKC. I want to distibute them across 5 columns such that each letter occupies one cell. I might want to specify a different column width later on so the solution should be flexible.

## String Extraction Where Two Letters Exist

Nov 13, 2007

I have a list of 3000 strings, all in seperate cells, in a column.

Within each string, are ( say 13 ) letters ( for convience) "A" through to "M" which are of interest to me

The 'letters' of interest occur either once or twice , or none within the individual strings. When a 'letter' of interest occurs within a string , putting a marker in a column on the same row is sufficient.

Using vba, I have extracted the cases where 2 'letters' exist within the strings, by using 3 nested FOR NEXT loops, with an IF test in the middle of

If (InStr(Cells(i, 2).Value, IndexLetter#1) > 0) and (InStr(Cells(i, 2).Value, IndexLetter#2) > 0)Then
and then put my marker in cells(i,3)

where : IndexLetter#1 is set in the outermost of the FOR NEXT loops as one of the 'letters' of interest, and similarly IndexLetter#2 is set on the next inner of the FOR NEXT loop . The inner most FOR NEXT loop ( i ) is the list of 3000 strings

I want to put a marker next to the string , when only ONE of the 'letters' is present in the string AND NONE OF THE OTHERS

## Changing Letters In A Text String

Oct 4, 2009

I have text strings consisting of about 500 letters consisting of A, C, G and T. I need to switch A-->T, C-->G, G-->C and T-->A across the whole string. I've tried searching for methods and several techniques without success.

## Display Leading Zeros In Character String?

Feb 18, 2013

I have a code which displays the values of R2, S2, T2, and U2 in one cell (J2). R2, S2 and U2 are all letters, but T2 is a 2 digit number. If there is a leading zero in T2, then in the display of J2, the leading zero is gone. so if the value of R2 is K, S2 is M, T2 is 01 and U2 is S, then I would want it to display KM01S, but it is only displaying KM1S.

## Adding Zeros To The Beginning Of String Of Numbers

## Separate String Of Text Containing Letters And Numbers

Apr 22, 2014

I am in need of a formula that will separate a string of text. Specifically, I want to pull out the number values (including cents) from the rest of the text. This is how the text reads:

## Wrong Letters Or Numbers In A Text String

Dec 1, 2006

So for a program I am writing, the user inputs a text string of 200+ alphabetic letters. Only 20 of the 26 alphabet can be in this input (excluding BJOUXZ). What I need to have a macro or function do is check to make sure none of these 6 alphabet letters are present in the string, and also check to make sure no numbers are present either.

Also, I would love for the input text to be converted to Uppercase for all letter as it does this check.
