Remove Text From Multiple Cells

Dec 6, 2008

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!

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.

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).

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 Space From Multiple Cells

Oct 24, 2005

I need to delete a leading space from multiple cells, 200 or more. The leading space is in front of text that is often more than one word so I can't just copy into Word and do a find and replace on the spaces.

I looked in many places and found out about the Trim function but when I tried it, it didn't work for me. I created a column next to the column that I want to remove the leading spaces from.

Then I put =TRIM(B2) in the first cell, =TRIM (B3) in the next one, etc. But all it did was put the exact same thing as before (with the leading space still in it) in that column?

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"

Compare Multiple Text Cells To One String Of Text And Return Specified Value

May 12, 2012

I have a dataset of shifts and want to compare each shift that needs to be filled to a list of requests for time off (vacation, etc).

For one cell the code is: =IF(ISERROR(SEARCH(B1, A1), 0,1)

Where A1 is the column of requests in comma delimited forme (ie: "AB,CD,EF").

Where B1 is the column containing the person assigned to shift 1 (ie: "AB")

In this case, would return a "1" as no error was returned, as AB was found in the list. Here "1" would represent a schedule conflict.

Without creating many cells for each shift- there are 20 shifts- can I create an array or string together this type of "SEARCH" function?

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.

This is evaluation data for a class of 20 students, where each row is one students response to the evaluation, with the last cell in the row containing their comments (text data that may be blank, or up to several sentences in length). Here's what I'm trying to do:

Combine all 20 cells into one cell that can be printed (with word-wrap turned on).
Add a blank line between each comment.
Disregard any blank cells so extra blank lines are not added.

Summing Numbers From Multiple Cells With Text?

May 9, 2014

I am looking for a formula which will sum numbers with less than symbols in front of them (i.e. they are text cells), and then replace the less than symbol again in the summed cell if initially present. The problem is that not every cell contains a < symbol, some of them are just numbers, and not every column contains a < symbol either.

e.g. I am looking for a formula which if entered in row 5 of this example would give these answers.

Copy Text From One Cell To Multiple Other Cells

Feb 1, 2014

I have two separate data files that I am trying to combine into one worksheet. One set of data looks something like this:

Column A Column B ColumnC
Date1 Name1
Date1 Name2
Date1 Name3
Date2 Name1
Date2 Name2
Date2 Name3

This is repeated for something like 200 dates, and there could be anything from 1 to 10 lines for each date, for a total of over 1000 rows.

The other data file has this information:

Column A Column B ColumnC
Date1 Place1
Date2 Place2
Date3 Place3

I.e. one line for each date.

I want to combine the data so that Column C contains the Place data. All I could think to do was combine them and then sort by Column A, so I ended up with this:

Column A Column B ColumnC
Date1 Name1
Date1 Name2
Date1 Name3
Date1 Place1
Date2 Name1
Date2 Name2
Date2 Name3
Date2 Place2

And then I would just copy and paste to end up with this:

Column A Column B ColumnC
Date1 Name1 Place1
Date1 Name2 Place1
Date1 Name3 Place1
Date1 Place1
Date2 Name1 Place2
Date2 Name2 Place2
Date2 Name3 Place2
Date2 Place2

Ultimately I want to sort the combined data by Column C, I just have to get the data in there first.

Is there a formula or macro or something I could use to copy the Place names automatically? Each worksheet with 1000 lines and several dozen worksheets means I'd have to copy and paste dozens of thousands of times, which is a bit tedious.

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.
