I am exporting lots of data from a website and for some reason to do with html i am getting &nbsp; 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).
I have a large excel file with the top seven rows such as you see in the attached file. In row five there is a bunch of info before the month and the year. What I want to do is get rid of that info besides the month and year. I than want to sort each column by the month and year so that all the columns are in sequential order.
I have a column in which the cells contain values such as "012321 BGH YRK". Is there any way you know of that I can remove just the text from every cell and keep the numeric values? A mass operation because there are literally hundreds of these cells. I am using Excel 2001.
I'm working with a large range of data in single columns and I want to remove all text characters (a-z) from the workbook. There are some cells which have text characters with numerical characters so I'm struggling to find a way to isolate them.
I need to remove the last bit of text from the contents of multiple cells in a column. In my attached example, I want to remove the last line break and the text "• List Price £", by processing all the cells in the column at the same time.
I can add text OK in Format: Cells: Number: Custom using @"text" but haven't been able to figure out how to remove text yet!
I have copied information from an outside source to Excel. Unfortunately, the information includes numbers preceding the text which I need to delete for all records. Is there an easier way of deleting this information without going to each individual cell to delete the numbers
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.
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:
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).
I want B1 to copy from A1, but if A1 contains a certain text string, then remove that text string and keep everything else. For example, I want B1 to remove "ru" "la" "fm" and "mu" so if A1 is 5464ru-xl then B1 will return 5464-xl or if A1 is 36944la-s then B1 returns 36994-s
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)
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 ~
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 ?
I'm trying to find vehicle make and model in a cell containing a lot of text and then display that in the formula cell. For example if A1 is a paragraph that contains somewhere within it "Ford" & "Ranger". I want B1 to display "Ford" and C1 to display "Ranger". I have a list of vehicles makes (column A) and models (column B) on a seperate sheet.
CELLS AA5:AA64 will have either EF, CS, SBS and/or, RP. Cell AA16 could be "EF / CS / SBS" and AA20 could be CS. I want Cell AA65 to count show how many CS's have been entered in that range. How would I do this.
What i need it for certain colored text to appear in specific total cells.
For example; i have 38 cells in a column within these cells id like it to have black writing which i want to total up and go into a total for that color into a specific cell and say green colored text into a different total cell and red text into another total cell.
If i had for instance 6 numbers all red 6 numbers all black and 6 green id like the numbers to all be added correctly and also into color specific cells?
in excel how do I count cells that begin with specific text. Ex: in a column with 100 entries, I want to count the number of cells that have the letters "app" from the word approved as the first three characters in the cell
The easiest way of explaining what I'm after is to say, I have letters of the alphabet, in their own cells, and I want to find them by way of a search. I don't mind how this is done, but it would be good if for example you entered A, C and E, any cells containing those letters changed, maybe became bold, or the cell filled with colour.
I have a workbook used for scheduling purposes and you can add hours to it by typing in D+1 or D-1, etc. I want to prevent this from working and just ignore the cell if the cell contents say "DC". I've tried to adjust my formula but haven't had any luck. I've attached an example worksheet with the formula for an easier understanding.
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.
Im sure this has been addressed before but i need a macro that would act like a "Contains" function. I have Column B that has user comments. These are sentences like "I have a billing issue" or "My item is damaged". My goal search these for keywords and then have a value (category) populate in Column C
Heres an example. the Category is Damaged Goods: Keywords associated with it are "broke" "broken" "replacement" "damaged" "not working"
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
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.
Is there a way to auto-populate all of the empty cells with the word "Need to Review" in a cell range (A1:A250)? Once any of the cells in this range is populated, whatever is inputted should house the cell.
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.
