Retrieving A String From A Sentence

Feb 14, 2009

=IFERROR(SEARCH("[",string,1),MID(string position,start of char,length of char))

Hi I wish to pull out the characters from a sentence. Once it detects the "[" from the sentence it should pull the string that follow limiting to the length of the character.

It looks like I did something wrong and the results shows only the position of "[" only.

I want to error check because it to return nuthing if there's no value. IF statement would process errors in this case.

Retrieving Ddmmyy From String

Nov 11, 2008

I need to retrieve 6 digits (It's really the date in "ddmmyy" format) from a string. If the strings were to follow a standardized format it would be a simple matter of using left, right or mid. However, I have a couple of different scenarios.

The "ddmmyy" I'm looking for may be sandwiched between other characters, separated by a space or remain at the end of the string. Is there a way to sniff out the 6 digits in the string regardless of it's position?

Here are some examples:

1) ABC COMPANY 3.6% 100111-BLAH
2) MCCAIN JOHN4.9%120509
3) ROYAL BK SCOTLAND 4.03% 160309
4) IBRD 8% 090210 BNPHFN00002 HKD5) AUST & NZ BANKING 4.23%161109-EMTN

Putting Formula In The Sentence Part Of IF / ISNA / VLOOKUP String

May 21, 2013

I have been using an IF,ISNA,VLOOKUP formula as follows which I am sure you are all familiar with :


This formula works correctly, displaying the lookup value for K7. My query is between the"" I can place text to display when K7 is blank and this works correctly too. However I would like to place a formula in here. The formula is VLOOKUP(I7,Orig!A7:B35,COLUMNS(B7:B35)+1,0 i.e. the lookup value is now I7 and not K7 when K7 is blank.

I have tried the following and variations based on what I know but they return errors.

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(K7,Orig!A7:B35,COLUMNS(B7:B35)+1,0)),(""& VLOOKUP(K7,Orig!A7:B35,COLUMNS(B7:B35)+1,0),VLOOKUP(K7,Orig!A7:B35,COLUMNS(B7:B35)+1,0))

Any better way of using I7 as the lookup value when K7 is blank.

Formatting A Number Within A Sentence

Jun 19, 2009

Is there a way to format a number within a sentence? i.e.

In cell A1 I have 2,000 entered and formatted as a number. In cell A2 I type in ="How can I format "&A1&" ?"

When I do this, the result in A2 is How can I format 2000?

Is there a way to format the 2000 to show the thousand separator comma? If the number were -2,000 instead, is there a way to show both the comma and parentheses around the number? (without putting the parentheses manually into the formula)?

Extract Last Three Words From Sentence

Feb 8, 2008

I'm running 2007, and have a mailing list that is setup - A1 = text(full name of company), A2 = text(full street address, city, state, zip) NO PUNCTUATION.

I have been able to separate each word for the address line, but this leaves me with many different length addresses spread out over different cells, so taking just the city state and zip is not feasible in large numbers. I have over 10,000 of these listed down column A1.

I need to be able to extract city, state, and zip, (There is no punctuation in the address line)and put them all in one cell, for the third line of the address box. I need them to cut from the source, also - leaving the source only the street address.

Extracting Numbers From A Sentence

Mar 18, 2007

I play an online browser game and I've made a spreadsheet for tracking various aspects of the game.

I do okay with the simple formulas and can haphazardly get excel to do what I want it to do. But for a few things I want it to do, I've run into a wall...

Here is the first one:

In the game, I receive reports like this:

One of your fleets (Large Cargo:5 ) returns from [2:100:9] to Planet [2:101:13] . The fleet is delivering 58.679 Metal, 28.750 Crystal and 11.521 Deuterium.

I want to be able to copy that, and past it into A1. Easy enough, but here's the tricky part. I want excel to be able to automatically extract the numbers in front of metal, crystal, and deuterium into their own separate fieilds. So that in this instance B1 would display 58,670, C1 would display 28,750, and D1 would display 11,521.

The amounts can vary anywhere from 1 to 9,999,999 (but there will be no negative numbers), and in some cases the number would end in 0 (I've seen where that makes a difference in some formulas for some reason).

If it makes it easier, the copy/paste could be reduced to:

The fleet is delivering 58.679 Metal, 28.750 Crystal and 11.521 Deuterium.

Compiling A Sentence Into An InputBox From Various Cells

Jul 30, 2009

I'm creating an InputBox that pulls from various cells in my worksheet to create a sentence as the default value in the text-space. For example:

A1 = Policy Number
B1 = Credit Amount (i.e. $10)
C1 = $ Info [i.e. if credit is for one month (1 x 10), if two months (2 x 10)]
D1 = Date Policy Ended
E1 = Months Excluded from Bills

Thus, the sentence that the InputBox would display would be:
Today's Date + A1 + B1 + C1 + D1 + E1
Date - Policy # - Credit Amount - Info - Date Ended - Months Excluded

A text example would be:
30JUL2009 - 1234 - $10 - 1x10 - 01JUN2009 - Exc Jul,Aug09

The issue I'm having is how to have the InputBox macro ignore one of the cells if it's empty. My current code is:
