Replace Character With Another

Oct 9, 2007

I'm trying to go through a short list of letters and change the contents of every cell in the list that contains a "c" into a "M". I've written this code, but I get a #Value! message on my spreadsheet when I run it:

Function FindCpmDpm(SearchRng As Range)

Dim CelRng As Range

For Each CelRng In SearchRng

If CelRng.Value = "c" Then
CelRng.Value = "M"
End If

Next CelRng

End Function

I am having trouble accessing the cell which contains the "c".

Replace Specific Character ONLY If Its LAST In The Sheet

Nov 27, 2013

Switched to Excel after using OpenOffice and I'm stuck on knowing what an old a 'find and replace' formula would be in Excel. It would remove a specific character (or word) ONLY if it was the last characters in a cell.

The old find and replace for open office:
Find: (.*)/$
Replace: $1

It's not that important now to delete a word, mainly the last slash '/' ONLY if it's the last character e.g. this data has 2 rows with a '/' as the last character

Running my old find and replace formula would remove the last slashes, but leave the others

Need simple replacement to the find and replace but a formula is also right.

have to deal with a text database into Excel but ended up finding irregular format that need to be fixed. As it can be seen within the text right below, there are space delimiters in between the words. I want to replace always the 2nd space from right to left with a semicolon.

Unwanted Character, Can Not Search And Replace

Dec 18, 2007

I have a sheet that I often have to edit and import into SQL database.

I have no control over the format of the sheet given to me and it seems that something has changed causing me the following problem.

When I try to import the Data itís showing ten times as many items than are actually there.

The problem I think is in a text column. Iíve tested this by using an old column from a previous sheet and pasting this into the new sheet and I can import it ok.

What I seem to have is a rectangular box character but Iím not sure what it is.
I can copy and past it into Notepad as it is, but pasted into Word it seems to be a carriage Return.

So whether itís an actual charter or not Iím not sure.

Are there any tools out there so I can hover over characters in Excel to see what it is! So at least I can be sure what Iím trying to Search and Replace?

Remove / Replace ONLY FIRST Occurrence Of First Character In All Rows Of Column?

Jul 30, 2013

I need to remove the first character in each row of a column, but only its first occurrence in each row. For instance:

Say, column 2 has following data (lots of rows, by the way):

First Text" - "blabla"
=SomeText2 = "blabla"
SomeText3 = "blabla"
=SomeText4 = "blabla"
-SomeText5 --- "blabla"

I would like to use the VBA code to remove ONLY the FIRST occurrence of the FIRST character specified (either "=" or "-") in each row in that column, so that I get:

First Text" - "blabla"
SomeText2 = "blabla"
SomeText3 = "blabla"
SomeText4 = "blabla"
SomeText5 --- "blabla"
...and so on...

I tried to use this:

Columns(2).Cells.Replace What:="-", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
Columns(2).Cells.Replace What:="=", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
but it replaces ALL occurrences of "=" and "-" and that is not what I need.

I also tried this code:

With Range("B:B")
.Value = Replace(.Value, "=", "", 1, 1)
End With

But It doesn't work either.

Concatenate Cells & Replace Certain Character With Line Breaks

Jan 24, 2008

I have 2 sheets in a work book. Sheet 1 I paste information from an email into A4.
Sheet 2 gathers the information and places it in the cell formating the text so I can import it properly to another program.

When I paste the comments into Sheet 1 it is pasted into mulitple cells. I want sheet 2 to format the text from these mulitples cells into one cell with spaces placed correctly ....

Replace Small Square Character With Line Break After Import

Nov 18, 2008

When importing text from a CSV, the 'line returns' appear in a cell as a small square with faded left and right sides. The do force a line break as intended. However, they are a nuisance in reading and printing.

When I use ALT+ENTER to force a line break, there is no visible character (on screen or printed) for the line break, which is as it should be.

How can I replace this 'special character' line break with one not visible?

Number Format To Display 20 Character Long Number?

Jul 9, 2014

I received a request from a coworker regarding custom formatting some numbers in his spreadsheet. Those numbers are serial numbers of 20 characters long. Sometimes in my files I use this custom number formatting ###0 and its enough for the data I handle. But when I tried to use it in his spreadsheet, the following shows:


The cell must look like this: 08456891070060510302

The reason to have it like this is due to a Delivery Program requirement to deliver Set-top Units for repair. The Delivery Program do not recognize other format than the above. My coworker takes the data from a spreadsheet, and the spreadsheet needs a custom number format to display the correct number.

find a custom number format to be able to display as my coworker need it??

Replace Character Used In Formula Where Formula References Cell

Feb 23, 2008

I am using vlookup to get a cell value from another sheet, but if the cell has "&" or "/" I need to substitue "&" and "/" with "and" so that the cell can be added later to a url.

i am using =VLOOKUP(a1,Sheet2!A1:W17968,6) to get the value of a1 in sheet 2 and return the value of column 6

this will return "Audio Cables & Leads" but i need it to say Audio Cables and Leads

I need the formula to also check and replace "/" with "and" as well so cables/wire will be Cables and wire

Determine If Last Character Is Number Or Not A Number

Oct 23, 2008

I'm trying to determine if the last character of a cell is a number or not a number. So in a cell I may have a string like:




If the last character is not a number I want the letter returned. So I thought I could use a formula like: =IF(NOT(ISNUMBER(RIGHT(D88,1))), RIGHT(D88,1),""). However for the string ZXC123 it still returns '3' so anyone have any ideas how I can do this?

Test To See If A Character Is A Number

Feb 6, 2009

I have a number of entries in column A.
The format is:

A1 B680192 Middle School
A2 Office Building Project

and so on;

I want to test if char.s 2 through 7 are numbers.

I can seperate one char at a time and use CODE function to check if the result is between 48 and 57.

I know how to split all six char.s at a time e.g. 680192, but I don't know how to test to see if it is a number?

ISNUMBER function doesn't work.

If I can do it with excel function, it would be better. If VBA has to be used, so be it.

Character To Number Conversion

Aug 15, 2006

I have a spreadsheet which I automatically generate using VBA. One of the columns lists account numbers. After the macro is complete, the account numbers are non-numeric and left justified. However if I select one of the account numbers by clicking on its cell, and then edit the account number in the formula window, it changes the cells property to numeric and right-justifies the cell.

Is Nth Character Text Or Number

Aug 16, 2007

Cell B23:687968307=ISTEXT(MID(RIGHT(B23,3),1,1))TRUE
Cell B24:C8796B07=ISTEXT(MID(RIGHT(B24,3),1,1))TRUE

I'm trying to test whether the third last character (3 and B) is a text or not.

As you can see, the reslts are both TRUE, but I'm expecting to see that the first one should be FALSE, as '3' is a number right?

Likewise, if I replace the formula with ISNUMBER instead of ISTEXT, the results are both FALSE, but shouldn't the first one be TRUE, again, because the '3' is a number?

Have I missed something in the formula, or is there a better way of expressing this formula?
