Removing Blank Spaces From The Beginning Of Cells

Jun 16, 2009

I'm compiling several old worksheets into a single database for a research study. The worksheets contain patient data. Some of the worksheets have the patient's last name, first name, and middle initial entered all in one cell like this: Smith,John R. Compounding the problem is the fact that sometimes the name is entered with a space between the comma and the first name, sometimes not.

I have formulas to break the name out into three separate columns "lName, "fName", "midInit". However, if the name in the original cell has a space between the coma and the first name, then the “fname” column will contain a blank space in front of the name. This is problem because patients names can appear in the database more than once. Some patients are in the database several times.

If patient “John R. Smith”, for example, is entered in the database as”

“Smith” “John” “R “

and also as

“Smith” “<space>John” “R”


then the database won’t recognize them as the same name when I search for John Smith’s data. Right?

If so, then I need a way to eliminate the empty spaces in front of the first names. Like I said, some have empty spaces and some don’t. I could do this by hand, but there are over 1000 entries in these worksheets.

Removing Spaces (?) From A Cell

Mar 16, 2009

I need to do a lookup on these cells but for some reason they all appear to have some kind of space characters in each cell which you can see if you double click on them. I have tried trims, text to columns, find replaces and none of these seem to work

I have a huge list of these numbers / codes and they all have the weird space kind of characters at the end

Can anyone give me a solution on how to remove them so my lookup will work?

Removing Spaces After Semicolons

Aug 20, 2009

I have cells in a sheet containing varying numbers of items separated by semicolons. I want to convert these to columns using text to columns. The trouble is there are spaces after each semicolon, and I don't know how to get rid of them. I believe this may be compounded by the fact that the cells containing varying numbers of items. When I convert to columns I don't want each cell in the new columns to start with spaces. I'm attaching an example of what I mean (sanitized with fast food joint names).

Removing Spaces In A Cell

Dec 12, 2008

I have a column with 11 digit numbers formatted as text (Column C) and it seems like there's three spaces after the number (In Sheet A). I am trying to do a vlookup comparing Sheet A to Sheet B. It's not working and not sure if it's the extra spacing in the cell of Sheet A that's causing the Vlookup not to work.

I would like to compare both lists to see what UPC's are on both sheets. Any ideas how I can do this?

In Sheet A, Column C contains UPC (11 digits) 07845968952

In Sheet B, Column E contains UPC (11 digits)

Removing Trailing Spaces From Cells In Entire Spreadsheets?

Dec 11, 2013

I have an Excel file with several worksheets and each of those worksheets has over 600 rows (a list of employees) and above or under 30 columns. Most of cells have trailing spaces in them and they vary in length. For example:

B5: "Jacobson "
C5: "jacobson@jacobson.org "
(Seems like it's not allowing me to post long gaps between the last letters and the "

I'm aware of the TRIM function and know that I could at least get a column or a few copied with the spaces removed. However, it would just take so much time. What would be the most efficient way of getting rid of all the trailing spaces in all the cells in all the columns in all the worksheets?

Fill With Blank Spaces

Jul 11, 2006

I have a worksheet where the user input data and i have to make a macro that exports certain cell from the worksheet to a text file without any separating symbol, just like “CONCATENATE and EXPORT”. This is not hard to do, i’ve done it already. But the difficult part is here. My customer wants this macro to be interactive with the user and with an AS400 server that takes the textfile and reads it to find the value of certain variables, something like the opposite process of CONCATENATE. The hard part for me is that if any of the cells concatenated is blank i have to fill the text file with blank spaces.

If the concatenated cells are:
|one| two| three| tour| five|

the exported text to the text file will be:

onetwothreefourfive

Insert Appropriate Number Of Blank Spaces In Cells B Through H

Aug 19, 2014

I am having trouble trying to figure out how to insert blank cells:

I need to insert cells, in columns B through H, equal to the number of returned IDs in column B.

Please take a look at the spreadsheet I attached.

Here is the code I am using to separate the IDs in column B so that I get one ID in each A cell. When I do this it separates them great, but then I have to manually go in and insert cells down so that the rest of the rows match up with the right ID.

Sub Macro1()
Dim fromCol As String
Dim toCol As String
Dim fromRow As String
Dim toRow As String

Preventing Blank Spaces On Userform Textboxes

On a userform, I have three textboxes, one listbox, and an OK button. When the user presses the OK button, the information in these boxes is pasted onto a worksheet. I am wondering how I can detect if any of these boxes have been accidentally left empty, so as to prevent the user from pasting an incomplete entry onto the worksheet. This is what I have so far (this is part of the routine that executes when the OK button is pressed):

If EnterGrowerTextBox.Text = "" Then
MsgBox "Please Enter the Grower Name"
Exit Sub
End If
If EnterAmountTextBox.Text = "" Then
MsgBox "Please Enter the Number of Chicks"
Exit Sub
End If
If EnterBreedTextBox.Text = "" Then
MsgBox "Please Enter the Breed"
Exit Sub

.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="<>"

Removing Blank Lines From String

I have a texfile that populates a textbox on a userform. I would like to remove all blank lines in the string including those at the end if they exist, before populating the textbox. I'm reading the entire file at once into the string, not line by line.

Is there any way to edit the string called Text to remove the blank lines before populating the textbox? I'm looking for 2 carriage return characters in a row, and if so then remove one of them, but I don't know how to code that. This is in the userform activate section. If I read the textfile line by line, I don't know how to populate the textbox that way and remove the blank lines.

Copy Column Of Data Removing Blank Cells

Nov 18, 2008

I have a long list of values in column F of my worksheet. These values appear in random rows for example: cell F3 is 27, cell F9 is 7, cell F13 is 27, cell F20 is 9 ... The data is not evenly spaced any specific number of rows apart, but there are spaces (rows which are blank in column F).

I would like to put all of these values in column G but without any blank cells, and keep the order the same as well. So using the above example, Id like a way to make cell G1 read 27, G2 read 7, G3 read 27, G4 read 9.

Column F could be a very long column im not sure exactly how long as the data is being put in periodically. Some sort of formula that I could just drag down that would read the values from column F and put them in column G with no places would be ideal.

Array Formula: How To Aggegrate Data, Removing Blank Cells

Aug 29, 2007

Lets say I have a column, and i have some dates in that column. between each date entry are blank cells, an undetermined ammount.

ie:

------------

1/1/2007
(blank)
(blank)
(blank)
2/5/2007
(blank)
(blank)
3/7/2007
(blank)
... etc ...

I would like some type of array formula, that could
agegrate that whole column into a new column, removing the blank cells.

so the new column would be:

--------
Column2
--------
1/1/2007
2/5/2007
3/7/2007

I was thinking something like... but this doesnt get rid of the blanks...
