Convert Array Into Text And Remove Duplicate Entries From Text In Cell?

Jun 12, 2014

I have the following two columns, and would like to obtain for each individual Company, the corresponding Country values excluding duplicates as text in a single cell.

Company 2Country B
Company 2Country C
Company 3Country C
Company 3Country C
Company 5Country A
Company 5Country C
Company 5Country C

For example:
- For Company 2, a cell containing "Country B, Country C"
- For Company 3, a cell containing "Country C"
- For Company 5, a cell containing "Country A, Country C"

I've approached generating an array using an IF statement, as in =IF(INDEX(A1:A8="Company 5",,),INDEX(B1:B8,,)," "), which returns the following array: ={" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";" ";"Country A";"Country C";"Country C";" ";" ";" ";" "}.

The question is: how do I get that array to produce, as text in a cell: "Country A, Country C". Note that the duplicate Country C has been removed.

There are a few "StringConcat" User-defined functions that I've found elsewhere on the internet, but they don't seem to be able to handle to conditionally generated IF Index array, which I would think is key to parsing between Countries corresponding to each Company in the list.

Add Or Remove Text Within One Cell?

Aug 13, 2009

I need to format C2 so that it removes all text that comes after a dash in B2, but if no dash exists, then it returns the text: Parent. For example, here are 3 values in B2, B3, and B4:

1234-s
1234-m
1234

In C2, C3, and C4 I'd like to have the following values returned based on the above values in B:

1234-
1234-
Parent................

Remove Partial Text From Cell

Apr 25, 2012

I am copying text (contest results from another website) and posting into excel. As it is formatted on the original site, it posts the place, followed by a period, then the team name, then a dash, then the score.

Example ... 4. Smokers Purgatory - 662.2858

To place it in our database we need the period removed from the place, and the dash and score removed.

Example ... 4 Smokers Purgatory

Is this possible to automate in excel or is there a way to format so that excel seperates the place, team name and score? Or should I be looking for a different method?

Function (not VB) To Remove Text From Cell?

Jun 30, 2012

way to use a function to remove text from a cell. I cannot use VB code, due to the spreadsheet being integrated in an operational software application - already tried it and get nothing but errors from the application. Was also trying to use a Find and replace function, but it's not working.

Here's the scenario - I have a cell that returns the weight of a product from the system, but it includes "LB" or "KG" in the cell along with the weight. I do not know how many characters will be returned to the cell, as it depends on the product. It could be a single digit up to 10 digits, including a decimal point. I need to clean up the cell to only a number, because in the next function, I am trying to round up the number that is left in that cell (won't round up with KG or LB in the way).

Insert Text To One File - Remove Text From Equivalent Column In Another File?

Aug 13, 2013

Got a slight problem; I am making a "worker-plan", where you should be able to write a name on one file and have it updated (removed) from the equivalent columns on another file automatically. Here's an example with two separate projects:

Project 1 before and after changes:
Attachment 257366
Attachment 257367

Project 2 before and after changes:
Attachment 257368
Attachment 257369

You can see here how I intended it to work. When one worker is moved from Project 1 to Project 2, that worker should also be removed from those weeks in Project 1. The previous worker from Project 2 should also be removed from those weeks (in Project 2).

Are there any formulas that can make this work automatically? All week numbers will belong to the same columns in all files.

Edit: There are 30 files that should be syncronized, not just two.. I could also gather all files into one file with sheets, instead of having seperate files.

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).

How To Remove Text After The Second Instance Of An Asterisk?

Jun 18, 2009

I'm trying to convert variable length strings which are being copied from a display and loaded into an array.

I have it working fine for the majority of the data, which comes in looking like "*ABC@US" or "*AABC@US"

However, some of the data looks a bit different, particularly lacking the @ symbol. So what I end up with is

"*ABC US*ABC US*ABC US"

What I need to get to is just "ABC US" FYI the US part can be 1-5 characters.

SO... I need a way to truncate anything after the second instance of the asterisk. Haven't been able to get it to work using various trim, mid, len, left, right, etc functions.

Remove 14 Digits From The END Of Text In A Column

Jul 9, 2009

I know how to remove the first part of a text, but not the end. I have a very large amount of data in which the first column contains a product description and then the UPC code. I need to isolate the product name from the UPC code into 2 columns. I used =RIGHT(B2,14) to isolate the UPC, but since the length of the product name varies, I'm not sure how to isolate the product name. I have looked at using the TRIM and TRUNC functions without any luck. 'Text to columns' doesn't work because I have multiple spaces, 'Text to columns' would work if I could used 2 digits as the delimiter, but the function doesn't allow that.

Can someone please suggest a function or formula for this?

Here is an examples of how the text appears in the field. (Note: I only need to cut off the UPC code, I need the measure information to stay).

some really long product name 12 oz 5 bag 09-99999-99999
another shorter name 2 oz 09-99999-99998

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.

Remove Multiple Characters From Text

Nov 20, 2006

This may be a very simple question so forgive me for my ignorance. I have text in individual cells that look something like this (not actually addresses but same format):

Doe, John – 123, Anywhere St (Apt A), Anytown Anystate 12345

I have about 5,000 records. I would like to convert the records to look like this:

Doe John 123 Anywhere St Anytown Anystate 12345

Basically I want to take out all non alphanumeric characters and anything between curved or square brackets. In my minds eye my macro would read something like this:

Do until last character.

If character = alphanumericTrue – Move to next characterFalse – If character = spaceTrue – Move to next characterFalse – If character = curved or square bracketTrue – Delete all text in brackets including brackets then move to next characterFalse – Delete character then move to next character
Loop. I would of course create an additional loop to run down the 5,000 records.
