Remove Specific Text From Only Certain Cells

Feb 9, 2009

I am exporting lots of data from a website and for some reason to do with html i am getting   in a few cells in my description column (column C), i think that means "& " in html. this occurs in some cells but not others when i paste it into Excel. I would like to remove these characters.

I know I can do it with crtl H and the replace field blank but I would like a formula so in the future the user will simply have to paste information and then get converted information out (as they will struggle to use excel).

How To Remove Specific Text Before A Character

May 5, 2014

1) In any cell, I would like to remove "Area#xxxxxxxxx" (where x are random numbers).

Example : "INFO Log - [sys] Area#541185471Character#46545"

2) I would like to remove x characters before a word.

Example : 2013-08-28.txt@INFO

I would need to remove 14 characters before the character "@".

I tried to play with the LEN and RIGHT/LEFT formula but so far, I can't get it to work... The idea is to parse some text and remove the part in red (I was thinking about using SUBSTITUTE).

Remove Part Of Text From Cells

Aug 19, 2006

I have a simple sentence in cells C3, D3 and E3. The sentence in C3 is:
Find Airfare to Chicago, Airline Tickets to Chicago, and More | XXXXXXXXX®

D3 contains: XXXXXXXXX highlights outstanding airfares to Chicago from quality airlines and agencies. E3 contains my list of keywords: Chicago Flights, Cheap Flights to Chicago, Cheap Chicago airline tickets, chicago flight, chicago airfare, chicago airline ticket, chicago airline tickets

The XXXXXXXXX in the C&D cells is the client name which I had to blank out in order to post here. I wasn't sure if you guys would need to know exactly how many characters there are in each cell. In column B3 is the name of the city, in this case the city is Chicago. I have 8000 destinations so I need a formula that will take the city (or any information) in the B column and replace that in the C, D and E columns in the appropriate place. I've attached a small, representative file to demonstrate.

Remove Duplicate Text From A String In A Row Of Cells

Sep 29, 2009

I have a large worksheet and I managed to duplicate data in a row of cells.

MOT 1/F1,
B/P 1f2,
B/P 1f2


In the string above I need to delete all text from the first comma to the end of the string so the above would look like:

MOT 1/F1

This is an example in one cell of many. The text prior to the first comma may or may not repeat and it is the only portion of the text I wish to keep. The first comma is not always in the same place (character count position).

Remove Text Character From Cells With Numbers

May 14, 2008

I want to change the character ~ with . in order to be able to make them numeric values to be feeded to other functions. But REPLACE seems not doing the job so I've been checking out other options such as seperating after and before the character ~. Details are below. I've been trying to use this formula to extract values from a delimited database which I open with excel. The formula that has brought me close is =IF(ISNUMBER(E51)=FALSE,LEFT(E51,LEN(E51)- FIND("~",E51)),E51)

14010~000
3210~0000

When I import the database, the figures above have originals as 14010.00000 & 3210.00000 but transfer to excel as above. As far as I have observed 9 character spaces are displayed & the DOT transfers to ~ for some reason. I need the LEFT section of the ~

Remove Leading Single Quote From Text Cells

Oct 9, 2009

I am a SAS programmer and often use SAS Proc Export to dump data to Excel. Sometimes the data is an Excel formula, e.g.
=hyperlink("#Sheet1!r1c1","click here")

Because the data is text, what get's put in the cell is '=HYPERLINK("#Sheet1!r1c1","click here") (note leading single quote).

I cannot use the replace function to edit them out, so must hand edit each one out -tedious at best.

Remove Characters / Spaces After Text For All Cells Within Range

Oct 12, 2013

Initially I'm simply copying a data table from a web page using "Ctrl + A" then "Ctrl + C", and then pasting the data straight onto a new worksheet so I can work with it. (After temporarily re-naming the old sheet)

But I keep finding what looks like double-spaces after some of the important text within the Range of cells I'm working with. I need to be able to select & conditional format the values of the text in some columns of the sheet, so need to loose these trailing spaces.

Unfortunately, it's not consistence as to how many spaces trail the text I need. Sometimes it's only one space, sometimes its two spaces ?

So far, I've had mixed success with a recorded "Replace" code but none of the other codes I have found on forum pages either don't work all or seem to give any consistent results. E;g; TRIM, CLEAN

I suspect my problem is, I do not know how to call the code properly, or trying to work with too large a range ?

The start of my code reads:

Code:

Sheets("Data").Select
Sheets("Data").Name = "Old Data"
Sheets.Add After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
Sheets(Sheets.Count).Select
ActiveSheet.Name = "Data"

[Code]...

' At the moment I'm using to select the pasted range I want to work on: Range(Range("C46"), Range("C46").SpecialCells(xlLastCell)).Select

This is where I need a code to work on the new Data sheet and remove all the trailing characters.

MsgBox "All data cleaned successfully !", vbInformation + vbOKOnly, "All Done"

Count The Number Of Cells With A Particular Colour AND SPECIFIC Text?

Jan 15, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where i would like to 'count' the number of cells with a particular colour AND SPECIFIC text (not 'any text').

I attach a xls with the initials of the person in column A, their colour as seen in cells in next four columns with the particular text in each cell. Therefore, for 'ABC1', in the given range, I would like to count how many cells have been allocated with the particular colour (brown, do not know colour index) and the particular text (1 or 2 or 4 or 5) in the range A1:CK39. Haven't supplied the actual sheet for confidentiality reasons.

Another category is Billing: keywords include "bill" "credit" "account"

I need a macro that will search all the comments and if "broken" (for example) is found anywhere within the comment, the value "damaged goods" will be populated in the same row, column C

Looking Back Through Cells In A Column To Find Specific Text(s)

Feb 14, 2010

In the attached sheet I need to check on the Destination in column B, and if it matches set criteria, divide the figure in Column E by 2. eg If LAX is the destination, then for any rows directly under LAX until the next destination appears, column E needs to equal column D divided by 2. If the Destination is not LAX, then Column E equals Column D.

the difficulty I am having is that there can be a variety of row numbers for each destination. I am having trouble creating a formula that can basically work backwards from Row-1 in column B until it gets to a text string, and check that text string against the criteria. so it may be row -1 up to about row -9 dependant on the number of flight times available to each destination throughout the week.

VBA - Copy Multiple Cells If Specific Text In Row Then Modify

Mar 7, 2012

I want some VBA code that will:

1) automatically check the active row to see if it contains specific text (i dont' care if there is other stuff in the cell or cells), such as "truck 1 blahblahblah" and checks for specific font color, such as green.

2) if the row does, then I want it to copy ALL the cells in the active row EXCEPT Column A (which contains the date), and then paste them twice, one 21 rows down from the active row, and one 35 rows down from the active row.

3) Once copied and pasted, modify the pasted cells slightly. The first pasted cells need to say Truck 2 blahblahblah in Column C and be in blue font (instead of the original Truck 1 blahblahblah in Green Font), the second needs to say Truck 3 blahblahblah and be in yellow font. Everything else that was pasted will be the same EXCEPT they will be in blue or yellow font.

Search IF Row Of Data (multiple Cells) Contains Specific Text

Mar 21, 2013

I'm building an inventory report based upon a daily report downloaded from a website. The downloaded report changes from day-to-day. All of the data I need remains there, but the location of the columns changes, with the exception of "BOL". I need to sort all of this data in a macro. I have most of my macro figured out, but I'm having trouble with one "sort". I need the data to be sorted FIRST by whether or not the 4th column contains "Clear" or "Dyed". I have the next two sorts already coded, based on SPOT vs Contract and then numerically by column A. But I cannot find macro coding or an excel formula (either would work) that reliably searches the 2nd column for the word "Clear". I have tried different combinations of IFERROR, FIND, SEARCH, IF, ISNUM, etc. in hopes of writing a new adjacent column containing the values "Clear" and "Dyed". I have found many combinations that work if I search only the correct cell. But when I extend the range to search through ~26 cells in one row, they all fail. Below is a (small) example of what I start with and what I want to end with. I've also included my current relevant Sorting code in my macro.

Count Of Cells Where Occurrence Of Some Specific Text Is Found

May 28, 2013

I have a spreadsheet that lists all the work done by employees within a specific area. Some employees cover multiple areas.

I am now needing to work out the average work completed by each area. I need a formula that will count the number of employees by each work area.

I know this is something I have done before, but my mind has gone blank and I can't for the life of me work it out again (it's one of those days).

Row 3 of the spreadsheet contains the codes for the work areas they cover (CM, V & TC) and some employees only cover one (which would be a simple CountIf) but some have multiple.

What is the formula to, for example, count the number of people who have CM in row 3 even if they also have other entries in that cell.

Macro - Select Multiple Cells By Searching For Specific Text

Nov 8, 2013

I would like to select all cells in column A that begin with the text "SP". Some cells will be contiguous but others will not. For instance in one case, I would like the macro to select cells with the text "SP" which would result in cells A1, A2, A3, A10, A15 being selected. I am working on building a macro that will then do other things to these cells/rows so this is the first step.

The below code will select the first cell with "SP". How would I alter this code to only search Column A and select multiple cells? or totally different code.

Code:
Sub test()
Dim r As RangeSet
r = Cells.Find(what:="SP", LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole)
If Not r Is Nothing Then r.Select

Populate Excel Cells With Specific Text From Word Document

Let me start by stating that I am a novice at writing macro script. I am trying to write a script that will open and search a Word doc, find specific text in that document, and populate certain excel cells with that information.

Ex. of Word doc:

5.1.2.3 Install gasket [12], using bolt [5] and nut [8].

5.1.2.4 Uninstall gasket [12] and scrap gasket and fasteners.

I would like the script to search for and populate any number between the [ ] into a specific excel cell, also I would like it to identify and populate an excell cell with the associated step, e.g.: "5.1.2.3", which will be at the begining of that step (step could be several sentences long). Also, I would like the script to look for and identify/populate an excel cell with any number of words such as: "install", "uninstall", "break", "scrap", or "remove" also associated with that step.

Macro To Find Specific Text In Column And Copy Certain Cells In Same Row To Different Sheet

Dec 30, 2011

how to work macros or VBA

I have a workbook with multiple sheets named by month and year that I use to keep track of loans I work with at a bank. In these sheets I have info such as:

Column B = due date
Column D = loan# A
Column E = loan# B
Column F = status
Column H = followup needed
(Columns A,C, and G aren't important for the current need)

What I am trying to do is create a main sheet (TRACKER) that all I will have to do is press a macro button and it will pull info for each loan that is in a pending status.

I need a macro that will search column F (Status) on all sheets and find each instance of "Pending" and once that is done, copy rows B,D,E, and H in each "Pending" instance and copy them to their designated area on my TRACKER sheet. After that is done I need it to continue to the next "pending" instance and do the same on the next available line on my TRACKER sheet.

The overall goal would be that everyday I can press the macro and it will repopulate the sheet with the current pending items (as each day I will change pending status' to complete and no longer need to track it the next day).

I already have the tracker sheet set up and ready to go with the spaces as follows:
Column G&H = Merged cells where due date will need to go
Column I&J = Merged cells where loan# A will need to go
Column K&L = Merged cells where loan# B will need to go
Column M thru S = Merged cells where followup needed will need to go
