Separate First And Last Names Entered In One Cell Into Two Different Cells

Feb 4, 2009

The database that I'm working on divides patient names into three separate columns: lastName, firstName, midInit. My department has several old spreadsheets that have data my boss suddenly wants included in my database. The trouble is, these old spreadsheets have the patient's last name, first name, and middle initial entered into the same column.

There are at least 200 hundred names in these spreadsheets. I absolutely do not want to go back and separate the names into separate columns by hand.

Is there any way to get Excel to take the names entered into one cell and split them into three cells?

I've attached a spreadsheet example that shows what I need to do.

Separate The First And Lasts Names From One Cell Into Two Cells

May 18, 2008

This is where you introduce yourself? I make lists for my gf's dad's company using excel. One of my most excruciating tasks is to separate the first and lasts names from one cell into two cells. Does anyone know a quicker way to do this other than manually? I have 10,000 names to do and it's going to be hours if I do it by hand.

Parsing Names In Separate Cells

Oct 23, 2009

a smart formula (no VBA) that will reverse the order of a list of names - parsing into separate columns.

The formula needs to be able to recognize/distinguish that if a comma(s) is present, then the names are listed as last, first middle. If there is a period this means the name has a middle initial or that a suffix is present. So,if the names are listed as last, first and middle then in the next columns will have in the proper order first name, middle name or initial (keep the period) and last name (loosing the comma of course).

If the original name order is in normal order - first middle and last then the formula should just pass through without any change. Would need to preserve generational titles such as Jr., Sr., III etc. Not sure where the best place for the generational titles should end up. Probably as part of the last name. See examples:

Col ACol BCol CCol D Col E
William J. ClintonWilliam J. Clinton
Churchill, Winston Leonard Spencer Winston Leonard Spencer Churhill
Bates, JohnJohn Bates
James Knoll PolkJames Knoll Polk
Taft, William H.William H. Taft
Carter, James, Earl, Jr.James Earl Carter Jr.
Rockefeller, John Davidson, IVJohn Davison Rockefeller IV
Gates, William, H., IIIWilliam H. Gates III
St. James, Michael, Ken Michael Ken St. James
CherCher

I tried using many variations of FIND, SEARCH, LEN and searching all the Excel boards to no avail.

Locking Cells Depending On What Is Entered In Another Cell

Sep 22, 2009

I'd like to lock some cells depending on what is put in a particular cell. As shown by the file attached, if the first column (Amendments) has a "no" in A4, I'd like to lock out cells B4:D4. (The sheet will be protected). If it's a "yes" then the cells are unlocked. I'd like to then apply this to all subsequent rows (i.e. lock B5:D5 if a "no" in A5 etc.)

Excel 2010 :: Lock Out Cells If A Value Is Entered In Another Cell

Mar 14, 2012

I am trying to lock out cells if a value is entered in another cell in Excel 2010. For instance, when entering a value into N7 (merged Columns N7,O7,P7 into one - not sure if that matters) I want Q7 (same thing, merged Q7,R7,S7 into one) and T7 (merged T7,U7,V7 into one) to be locked out.

So, if N7 has anything typed into it, I would like Q7 and T7 (merged) to be locked.

If that's possible, I would also like for it to happen from rows N7 - N21 ...

Is this hard to do? My understanding is that it's only possible through VBA ... am I accessing the script correctly? (right click the 'sheet 1' tab [named Issues log], select 'view code').

Separate Text From One Cell Into Other Cells?

Feb 21, 2014

Is it possible to that the contents of a single cell and and place text of that cell into separate cells? From a web output I have some like the following in my first cell

asdfsdf|adkjoi|fdf234sd|fsf3ie43|||asdfjlkei393|dfjvie|d||adfjei|...goes on with 28 "|"

The text is in A1 and I would like it to take the first string of characters up to the | and place it into cell A2

Then take the next set of characters up to the next | and place into cell A3 and so on.

Once the cell in A1 has been completely separated, go down to the next row and do the same until it reaches the end of the data.

Normally I would create a text file with the web data and then import that in with "|" delimited fields but I don't want to create that extra step for the user.

Formula That Adds Two Separate Cells If Third Cell Has Certain Value Into Another Cell

Aug 5, 2014

I'm working on a spreadsheet that includes items I sell as well as the packaging it goes in.

The formula I'm looking for basically will tell a cell that if one cell (# of box) is equal a certain # it will add two separate cells by the weight of the box.

I have cells for each of the following: Weight in lb and weight in oz of the item (no box), a cell which holds the number of the box (ranging from 1-15) and two cells with weight in lb and weight in oz which would be the total weight of the item + box.

So, for example, if weight of item equals 1 and box cell equals 2 then it will put the weight of item + weight of box into a third cell.

Here's a picture of my current spreadsheet : [URL] .....

Basically, I would like to do something such as if P3 = 5, then Q3 will equal N3 + U6 and R3 will equal O3 + V6.

Using Data In Two Cells To ID Separate Sheet And Cell

Oct 23, 2009

I use Excel 2003. I need help building a macro, please, that will copy data to a specific page in another workbook based on two criteria. Here's the deal:

The data in Workbook A, Sheet 1, Cell A1 may contain the word ALPHA, BAKER, or CHARLIE. Cell A2 may contain the number 1, 2, or 3. Cell B1 contains the data I want to collect from various Workbook As and keep in a list to analyze.

Over in Workbook B, Sheets 1 through 3 are named ALPHA, BAKER, and CHARLIE. Rows A, B, and C are titled 1, 2, and 3.

How can I copy the data from Workbook A, identified as ALPHA 3, to it's place in Workbook B, Sheet ALPHA, Row C?

Furthermore, Workbook A is a one time form will be used many times. Thus, when I copy B1 to Workbook B, Sheet ALPHA, Row C, I need to paste the data in the first empty cell in the row.

Cell Addresses Derived From Concatenated Values In Separate Cells

Apr 2, 2013

I need to return a value from a cell in Column H, but with a row number that varies with each entry.

I repeat this formula every 5 rows or so. But the cells referenced on another spreadsheet are only one row apart. Because of this discrepance, when I copy my highly developed cluster of formulas, they only reference every 5th entry on the other sheet. What I've been doing is manually altering long, complicated formulas by hand. I can't do a replace function because every once in awhile it'll find an extra instance of the digit I'm replacing and mess up parts of the formula I don't want changed. I could avoid this tedious, time-consuming work-around if I could make a formula that would do something like this:

=Display Value from in column H: (row number per cell B1)

And cell B1 would include the number 3789.

So the returned result is the value from cell H:3789

For A Column Of Cells Separate Text In Single Cell Across Multiple Columns

Nov 29, 2013

New task for work today, which involves creating a spreadsheet for all existing members of an organization. I went to the organization's website and copied all of the names & info, then pasted into a blank spreadsheet. All of the entries were separated into their own rows, but all of the information is only in one column. Take a look at my sample:

(NOTE: does not contain actual names or info) Book1.xlsx

This sample only contains 5 entries, but my actual list contains about 200; if it had just been the 5, I would have been fine with manually separating the information, but for 200 entries I need something much faster. You'll notice in the sample that the company, person, address, phone number, email, and website (when there) are not separated by anything. I know that using Text-to-Columns, I would technically be able to achieve what I need using the Delimited option, but I can't imagine this working without separators. I thought perhaps there might be a way to separate them based off font changes or something? Or maybe some way that I can insert a semi-colon or some kind of separator between the necessary data?

While the font is Arial for the majority of the entries, in terms of font changes: company font size is 12 and color is navy blue; the person's name is size 18, bolded, and dark grey; the address & phone number are size 9 and the color is light gray; and finally, the email & website are also size 9, but navy blue in color. However, you'll notice that two of the five entries are formatted differently. This is because formerly, the entire cell & its text were a hyperlink to the email. I went ahead and removed these hyperlinks, simply using a "Remove Hyperlink" macro walk through I found on the web, but now these cells are uniformly set to Calibri and size 11, my default font setting.

Shading And Locking Multiple Cells From Input Based On Value In Separate Single Cell

Sep 23, 2013

Now the problem, Each client has a sheet in a workbook. In each sheet, I input the number of days of service available to that particular client in a single cell. We'll say cell [G8] is the cell used for this input in all sheets. If the client has 30 days of service available then we type [30] in cell [G8]. Each sheet is a 100 day template. I want to shade in dark grey and lock from input the days NOT available to the client based on the days of service input in cell [G8]. If 30 days of service are available in cell [G8] then the remaining 70 days on the 100 day template would be shaded dark grey and locked from input. That is, day 31 through day 100 of the template would be locked and shaded. Each individual day has multiple cells in a column. I want to lock and shade each column of cells in each day not available.

Linking Cells Globally To Allow Users Ability To Change Cells On Separate Sheet / Cells?

Feb 18, 2014

I have a workbook that uses the values that a user had entered into 3 cells to calculate multiple other charts/diagrams on multiple sheets within the workbook. Each sheet would show what the user had entered in the 3 cells to allow them to see what is being used to calculate each table. Is it possible to link these cells so that the user can change the 3 values without having to go back to where he originally entered the 3 values?

For example, a user has entered in 3 values in Sheet 1. A formula in Sheet 2 displays what is entered by the user and uses these calls in Sheet 2 for calculations. When the user wants to change the three values, he would have to navigate to Sheet 1 and enter in the new values to have the workbook recalculate all the tables. Is there a way to link the three cells from Sheet 1 and Sheet 2 so when the user is on Sheet 2, he has the opportunity to change the values on the current Sheet without having to navigate to Sheet 1 to do so?

Table Names Revert To Cell Names When File Is Reopened

Jan 4, 2013

I have a worksheet with many tables that I use in formulas.

I like tables for a couple reasons, one being the ability to insert/delete rows without affecting the rest of that worksheet row.

Also, automatic copy of formulas/formatting is great.

But, what I really like about tables is the ability to use the naming conventions in formulas.

Problem is when I save this worksheet, after I close it and open it back up, all table references in my formulas have been converted to cell references.

Example:

Code:

=IF((SUMIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,">"&'Quote 1'!$J$57:$J$60)*'Quote 1'!$G$57:$G$60)+(COUNTIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,""&'Quote 1'!$J$57:$J$60)*'Quote 1'!$G$57:$G$60)+(COUNTIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,""&tblOSSRV[Min Order Cost])*tblOSSRV[Cost / Part])+(COUNTIF(tblFam[[#Data],[Qty by Factor2]],""&tblOSSRV[Min Parts Per Line])*tblOSSRV[Cost / Part])+(COUNTIF(tblFam[[#Data],[Qty by Factor2]],"

How To Unhide Rows When Data Is Entered Into Cells

Dec 6, 2009

I have been searching the internet and forums for days now looking for and trying out macros and scripts that will automatically unhide rows once data has been entered into a cell. The data entered is a link to a cell in another sheet. Everything I have tried is close to what I am looking for but it does not quite work, and because I really don't understand the programming details, I don't know what to change in the script to make it work for my spreadsheet.

create a macro/script to do the following:

Various rows in my summary sheet will be hidden as they will probably not be used, but in the off chance that data will be displayed in them, I need them to automatically unhide. The data that might be displayed in them is a link from monthly record sheets i.e. "=Jan!F4" or "=Feb!F32"

And because I am taking data from a 12 month period, I need the rows to unhide if any data is displayed between cell range of F5:AC1705. It is a large spreadsheet of data and it is all linked to 12 other sheets.

Unfortunately, I am unable to attach the file as it is too large.

Copy Cells Into Workbooks Names Mapped From Copy Cell

Aug 20, 2008

1. I have a list of data (Collated Data)
2. For every row in collated data I want to export the cells into a corresponding cell in my predetermined workbook (TAF Form), i.e, Cell C1 on Collated data goes into Cell D3 on TAF Form, cell D1 to cell I3 etc etc
3. Once all cells in one row have been copied into the TAF Form I want that TAF Form to save as "TAF Form & Employee Name" (which would come from cell D3).
4. I then want "TAF Form & Employee Name" to close.
5. I then want the Macro to do the same thing for Row 2, copy the cells, save the form, close the form
6. I want to do this for every row that I have (which varies).

Is this possible? If you have any more questions in terms of what I need, don't hesitate to ask.

Change Cells Data Is Entered Into Based On Date?

Jul 19, 2014

I own 3 restaurants and I use Excel to track my sales statics. I have to enter certain pieces of data on a daily basis and it can become slightly cumbersome when dealing with the sort of washed out look of Excel spreadsheets. I wanted to write a Windows application that would handle the process for me but my knowledge of programming languages is too limited and I don't really have the time to learn. What I'd like is to have a single page on my workbooks with which I can enter the data in on a field type view, and have it go to the appropriate cell on the "Raw" data sheets in the same workbook. For example:

Let's assume this is the Raw data sheet. I currently enter the data that I need here, and Excel does the rest for me. This gets hard to look at everyday when dealing with hundreds of numbers.

Net Sales
Taxes
Prior Year Sales
Percent Increase/Decrease

[Code].....

Entering the data here would automatically fill in the data on the Raw sheet, and would know which cells to put the data into based on the date, which would of course be gotten from the =Today() formula.
