Count Non-repeated Words In Cell

Oct 11, 2009

I want to count the nr of words in cell without counting the repeated words.
For example, in "this is a ball and that is a square", the total nr of words is 9, and the total nr of non-repeated words is 7, because "is" and "a" are repeated twice, and I just want to count it once.

Adjacent Cell In Row Action Not Then Repeated

Jun 13, 2014

Per the table below, I compute how many months to average project costs over, establish month in which the costs begin, and these accumulate in the work in progress (WIP) end columns, however in the month the final stage (to hit 100%) of costs are complete, the project is invoiced and the WIP is released - Noting the month in which the last costs are incurred are not added to total to reverse out. The 3 projects and final columns demonstrate the different scenarios and the results I would expect to see, I just can't formulate anything to release the previous months WIP without it repeating the negative for the rest of the year - if that makes sense?

Sheet1 *ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVW1
*********Project start point*Forecast costs incurred*Work in progress2**% project complete
****** * * * * * * 1 * * * * * 2 * * * * * * * 3 * * * * * * *4 **********3

Removing Certain Words In A Cell

Jun 24, 2008

removing certain words/charactors in a cell.

For example, I have these information in 1 excel cell.

"Company allows staff to purchase small value items (items amounting toless than $3000) with approval from the staff's director."

So in this case, I need to remove the HTML/XML tags manually. Therefore, the final result should be,

"Company allows staff to purchase small value items (items amounting to less than $3000) with approval from the staff's director."

It is very tedious with the huge amount of data to process.

Removing Repeated Headers

Nov 13, 2008

I have the regular headers in the first row, followed by rows containing my data. And at x number of rows, a new row containing headers appear again, followed by rows containing data. This goes on for the rest of report. What I need to do is remove the rest of the headers and lines because I only need to have one header in the first row.

Note that the header takes up two rows (one for the actual headers and one for the ====== lines. So removing the repeated headers is removing 2 rows.

For eg, part of the report looks like this:

PRODUCT PRODUCT NAME ==============================================12342EXAMPLE PRODUCT 122525EXAMPLE PRODUCT 2 35476EXAMPLE PRODUCT 3 53467EXAMPLE PRODUCT 4
PRODUCT PRODUCT NAME ==============================================135892EXAMPLE PRODUCT 5

Jul 6, 2012

I have an excel sheet with one column having one sentence in each cell of the column (rest all the cells of the sheet are vacant).

Now, i want to 'find' and 'remove' a list of pre-specified stop words such as "a", "the", "it", "of", etc. from every sentence and then get the resulting sentence pasted in the adjacent columns cell.

Copy Cells To Adjacent Column, Removing Blanks

Dec 8, 2009

In a worksheet, J2:J52 contains a list of unique strings; each cell populated by an embedded formula. Some of the cells contain a valid 'blank' "" given by the formula.

I'd like K2:K52 to contain the values J2:J52, with all the populated cells stacked at the top and the 'blank' cells at the bottom. 'Blank' cells do not have to be in any particular order.

I've been fiddling with the formula kindly provided by WindKnife on the second post in the thread below for the past couple of hours, but to no avail:

http://www.excelforum.com/excel-work...om-a-list.html

Columns A:H in the same worksheet are populated and unavailable for use.

I am trying to write some code that will look in an excel cell find if it contains the word that I am looking for and make it bold. I have written the following code so far

VB:
With Worksheets("Label Print").Cells(i, J)
.Characters(Start:=InStr(.Value, "Name"), Length:=Len("Name")).Font.Bold = True

The issue is that if "Name" occurs twice (or more) in a cell it will highlight only the first.

Auto-calculate 2 Column That Contains Numbers And Words Words

Jul 16, 2009

I've been using conventional method to do this and it's time consuming. I would like to total up 2 column. A multiply B to be exact. Below are some examples:

Table 1 - Before totaling up:

Quantity
Product
5
2 x Button A White
3
4 x Button B Pink
4
5 x Ribbon A Black
2
3 x Thread A White
6
2 x Cloth A Blue

Table 2 - After totaling up:

Quantity
Product
10
Button A White
12
Button B Pink
20
Ribbon A Black
6
Thread A White
12
Cloth A Blue

I need to have the sum of the "Quantity" multiply "Product". Or in short A x B.
And the end result need to have the number and "x" sign removed while keeping on the the products names. (2 x ) Take note it's "number" space "symbol" space.

Find Words - Deleting The Words - And Deleting Some Info After The Words.

Jun 23, 2006

I am trying to find certain words in a column and delete the word and characters following. For example, Say I have a column of info as seen below. This is a test of me. I am just experimenting with this stuff. Deleted (6/15/01) Let me know what you think. I am not sure about it all, but I guess I will figure it out. riviledge1 (01/05/06) Now let's see what happens when I try to test it.

I want to find all the "Priviledge1 (01/05/06)" and replace with nothing. Please note, the date will change with each record, so I need to figure out how to tell Excel to find "Priviledge1", delete it and the date behind it. So I want to delete "Priviledge1" and the next 11 characters including the space.

How To Turn Abbreviated Words Into Full Words

Feb 4, 2013

On to the topic, I have all the US and Canadian states abbreviated (CO = Colorado, etc.) and was wondering if there is a way to make all of them convert to their respective names in one fell swoop instead of writing it in for each one, one at a time. Something along the lines where I can make, CO = Colorado, TX = Texas and then hit enter and all of the abbreviations would convert. Some kind of command.

I have tried Sumproduct and Countif and can not get a proper count of rows that contain specific words in multiple columns. I have attached an example spreadsheet where I am looking for a result of 7 rows that contain 1 to 4 specific words within phrases. The example looks for the words: "virus", "spyware", "malware" & "adaware", and ignores any other words like "aware" or "ware".

Combining List Of Words Into New Words, Conjugation

Feb 15, 2007

I have 4-5 separate lists of words/letters and I would like to combine them in a certain order but creating all possible combinations resulting a new word. It's like a conjugation tool for verbs. For example if List 1 = be/el/ki/meg; List 2= m List3=e/; List4= gy/" "; List 5=" "/ek/sz/nnek So the output has to be (if the order is List1+List2+List3+List4+List5)= bemegy/bemegyek/bemegysz/bemesz/bemsz/elmegy/elmennek/ ..... and all possible combinations.

Preferentially I would like to automate it in a way that it straight outputs into MS Access. Also can it be automated that it reads the list from a file (database)?
(Also can it recognize the word by letters? Because the basic word that I would load the program= List2+List3+List4)

Copy Non-adjacent Cells In A Row From One Spreadsheet To Adjacent Rows In Another

Jan 5, 2014

I have a workbook with 30 worksheets. Each sheet has 84 rows of data (start in 15 columns (A to O). I would like to create a summary sheet that only shows the most important data from each sheet.

The summary sheet would have 12 lines of headers and formatted crap at the top.
The Summary sheet header columns would be:

Site (A), Date (B) Health (C), Status (D), Critical (E), Task (F),
Dependencies (G), Owner (H), T-Date (I), Task Date (J), Mitigation Date (I)

The data in the sheets are not in that order, of course.

That
1. puts the name of the sheet I am copying from in column A
2. the deadline date in Column B (that date is always in C10 of each worksheet)
3. and copies Cells from Column A,B,G,H,I,O in any row in which the value in A is not "good" into columns C through H. I would like to paste those rows into the summary sheet. I have code that loops through the sheets and rows in each sheet to find the rows to copy. I can copy cell values directly from the active sheet to the summary sheet, but because I am copying a cell at a time, it takes 7 minutes. Yes I am impatient :)

Here is the code snippet where the copying is done:

Dim sh As Worksheet 'current worksheet
Dim DestSh As Worksheet 'worksheet in which to paste summary
Dim Last As Long
Dim CopyRow As Long 'row to copy
Dim LastCopyRow As Long

[Code] ........

ExitTheSub:

Application.Goto Sheets("KMARollup").Cells(1)
End Sub

I think there must be a way to use ranges to build an array of cell values and paste only once but I am lost here.

Finding Single Name In Cell In Cell With Multiple Names (words)

May 8, 2014

Looking for a formula (not macro) that can do the following:

I have a spreadsheet and in one column, it has last names of clients. In the next column, it has full names of clients that are the same account, but different system with different descriptions for the name. I need to lookup the column that just has last name and see if that last name exist anywhere in the "Full name" column. If it does, then I need column C to say "Yes" or something along those lines.

The "full name" column isn't always in the same format and sometimes doesn't even contain the "last name." Sometimes the last name will be first and sometimes there's a comma and sometimes there isn't a comma. The spreadsheet attached shows a good short example of what I'm working with...
