# Search Range Of Cells For Alphanumeric String

Mar 5, 2010

I tried to find out how to post my table but the link in that thread lead me to a notice saying I wasn't allowed access to the page.)

Cells A2:G2 contain various alphanumeric strings.

If any cell contains "SD#" (# = a number which might include decimal places) then I want to extract the number.

If more than one cell contains "SD#", I want to add the numbers together. The total goes in cell C6 and it needs to change if the contents of A2:G2 change. E.g. if A2 shows SD4.75 and B2 shows SD8, the total in C6 would be 12.75

So I'm looking for a formula for C6....

## How To Search For Duplicates In A String Across A Range Of Cells

Apr 7, 2009

if I have a column of 5 cells (E1-E5) that contain a single character, how would I search a range of columns and rows (A1/5 - D1/5) with these?

So if E1-E5 each contain "1", i would like to return true when one (or more) of the A - D columns also contain "1" in each of its cells.

Columns A - D will contain a string of more than one character so it needs to search the string.

e.g.
E1 = 1
E2 = 1
E3 = 1
E4 = 1
E5 = 1 and
A1 = 123
A2 = 134
A3 = 142
A4 = 412
A5 = 213

I would like this to return true because the A cells do contain the values in the E cells.

I guess this is like looking for duplicates but with a search string twist!

## Search For Part Of String In Range Of Cells

Jan 17, 2012

Following problem:

I have a list of changes on our bankaccount.

Sometimes, in the description a payment we receive the name of the person who transferred the amount is mentionned.

It can be anywhere in the string, it can be just his/her first name, it can be his/her full name...

I also have a list of all our clients with first name in column A, second name in column B

Something like this:

string from bancaccount:

EUROPESE OVERSCHRIJVING VAN BE16 6712 5615 7974 BANKIER OPDRACHTGEVER: EURBBE99 VANDERSMISSEN WILLY VAN PLAKSTRAAT 176 9000 GENT 68/10762827 PENSIOEN REFERENTIE: OV-0000236-00240

client list
Francois D'hondt
Germaine Canipel
Willy Vandersmissen
Karel D'hondt
.
.
.

I'd like VBA to search in the clientlist for names that occur in the bankaccount string.

Sice ther might be a lot of Willy's in the client lsit I think it will be best to serch for the combination of both first and second name.

Once found the name the procedure should return the rownumer on which the client can be found in the client list.

## Excel 2010 :: Search For A String In Contents Of Range Of Cells

Sep 26, 2013

I have a range of cells each containing different values. Each of these different cells has a related date contained in the row underneath.

I want to be able to search the range of cells and find it in the contents of a cell and return the corresponding date from the row below.

Excel 2010
A
B
C
D
E
F
G

[Code]...

Row A4:O4 is the range of cells to be tested. Row A5:O5 are the corresponding dates. Cell B1 is the value I want to search for and B2 is where the date I would like to appear.

In the example shown I'd like 01-Sep to appear in B2.

I'm using Excel2010 and Windows 7.

## Macro To Search String In A Range Of Cells And Replace While Leaving Original

Jul 25, 2014

So I was given the task to translate some procedure instructions in an Excel file from English to Spanish. These are very simple instructions and in most cases repetitive throughout the document. There are a lot of instances where the instructions are the same except for a #. They are meant to be modified within the cell as the text that appears in the cell will be printed exactly as it appears.There are several instructions in the cell, it is basically a long continuous string in the cell. My idea is to create a macro that can search that range of cells for the instruction, replace it with the Spanish equivalent while leaving the original English instruction in the cell.

## Generating Random Number String Based On Alphanumeric String?

Aug 14, 2014

Wondering if it is possible to generate a random 4 digit number based off an alphanumeric string?

Example;

Cell A1 has 123XVF1234
Cell A2 has 321AFW4321

In B1 I would like to have a 4-6 digit number that is generated based on the alphanumeric data in Cell A1 (and so on down the list). If that is possible, I would also need to be able to convert back the 4-6 digit number back to its original alphanumeric value

Example;

If B1 returns 643562 it would need to be able to be converted back to 123XVF1234

I need to select and copy all rows in between the occurence of "spot.return". There are a total of 80 occurences of "spot.return".

## Alphanumeric Search And + 1

Jan 30, 2013

It looks for a numeric value then increments it of +1 based on the value found.

How would I modify this for it to look for an alphanumeric value first (EX.: 0A) then increment it alphabetically (Ex.: if 0A then the result would be 0B) and if the value searched is not alphanumeric it would then revert to the initial bit of code that searches for the numeric value?

Dim FndRw As Long, c As Range, LstRw As Long

Set c = Cells.Find(What:="No.", After:=Cells(1, 1), SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious)

If Not c Is Nothing Then
FndRw = c.Row
If Len(Cells(FndRw + 1, "B")) Then

## Extracting Alphanumeric Value From The String

Jul 20, 2009

I have a rather difficult task to accomplish. What I need is to be able to extract an alphanumeric value from the string. It is a serial number of the equipment and it is always nine alphanumeric characters long. The problem is it can be anywhere in string. Example: “2156545 36 month lease NWL023568 Nancy Clay”.

## Non-zero Numbers From An Alphanumeric String

Jan 9, 2007

I am looking for formulae to identify the first 20 non-zero numbers from a string of alphanumerical and non alphanumeric characters

EG If column A any data such as:
123
0123
01(2)3
0.123
123abc
0123abc
01(2)3abc
0.123abc
a1b2c3
1a2b3c

Then the corresponding row for column B would return 123

Using help from my maths Prof and some IT bods, i have so-far come up with the array-formula:

=1*MID(A7,MATCH(FALSE,ISERROR(1/MID(A7,ROW(1:100),1)),0),20)

assuming that the total string is not more than 100 characters.

## Lookup Part Of Text String In Userform ComboBox And Search For Value In Sheet Range

Feb 12, 2014

I have a worksheet with following values:

A
B
C
1
Shorts
75

[Code]...

Also I have a Userform with 2 ComboBoxes named "ComboBox1" and "ComboBox2". Values in ComboBox1 is "Pull my pants", "Eat my shorts", "Socks for everyone".

What I would like to do is to search though column A and look for any of these textstrings in my selection in ComboBox1 and return the value from column B in column C.

Example: "Pull my pants" is selected in ComboBox1 then the value "pants" should be found in column A and value in column B (25) should be entered in cell C2.

I am fairly new to VBA and have spend hours searching Google and found some formulas like InStr and VLookup. My problem is that I am not sure if these statements will do the job and how to combine them.

## Search For Number Within Alphanumeric Text?

Oct 2, 2012

I have data on two spread sheets which I am trying to cross reference. On the 1st spread sheet I have a list of product codes e.g. 22886, On the 2nd Spread sheet I have a list of product titles which all include product codes within the text e.g. CHRISTMAS FANCY DRESS COSTUME - SANTA SPARKLE OUTFIT 22886 M

I need to insert a formula into the 1st spread sheet which will tell me if based on the product code it is present in the 2nd spread sheet. I have tried VLOOKUP and I think because I am trying to search for a code within a text string it keeps failing! All cells are general cells but the position of the code within the titles varies.

## Extract Number From Alphanumeric String ..

Dec 16, 2008

I would like to parse a part number.

ab24s-12-g4a

if there is a "-#-" in the string, that is the value I want. If the "-#-" is not present, I would like to take the first number. Currently, as written in your first example, I am getting the first number - excellent and thank you!

In the sku, the first digit reprepresents capacity. If a second number is present after the capacity portion of the sku (i.e. "-#-"), that means that they want to order it filled with less than capacity. For instance, a carton of eggs and they want 6 eggs instead of the max capacity of 12. (i.e. egg12-6-z2z). Numbers after the second octet (i.e. z2z) do not matter.

It would be a number only in the second octet. If there are characters with it, the equation should disregard it.

Here are the scenarios, and what the formula should accomplish

1) egg12 --> currently returns 12
2) egg12-6 --> would return 6
3) egg12-6-g2c --> would return 6
4) egg12-g2c --> would return 12

## Substitution Of Specific Characters In Alphanumeric String

Jun 13, 2013

I have a large column of text with multiple entries similar to this: PC3L-10600R-9-11-A0. I need to replace the "11" with a 13. However I have other instances where the 11 appears (PC3-12800E-11-11-D0 or PC3L-12800R-11-11-A0).

I have found that I can use SUBSTITUTION

{=SUBSTITUTE(A50,H50,I50,1) and =SUBSTITUTE(A61,H61,I61,2)}

to handle the specific instances but I'd like to have a way to combine this type of function logically in one command.
