How can I do this easily and quickly?

## Separate Letters And Numbers In A String Into Separate Columns

Nov 20, 2012

I receive an extraction from AutoCAD that lists the electrical devices in a drawing. I don't have any problems extracting the letters. I have a problem extracting the device number and the device number extension.

The device label extraction is similar to this:
DCM1005-1
DCM1005-10
DCM1005A
MTR1005-1
MTR1005-10
MTR1005A

I want to create 3 columns from the device label: (I separated the column with commas)
A1, B1, C1, D1
DCM1005-1, DCM, 1005, 1
DCM1005-10, DCM, 1005, 10
DCM1005A, DCM, 1005, A
MTR1005-1, MTR, 1005, 1
MTR1005-10, MTR, 1005, 10
MTR1005A, MTR, 1005, A

## Extract Separate Numbers From Letters

Feb 1, 2007

I've found several posts but none seem to peform this varying function:

EX12345678....Result in Col B: "EX" and Result in Col C: "12345678"
RTZZ4567.......Result in Col B: "RTZZ" and Result in Col C: "4567"

The problem with the formulas I've got specifically define - pulling let's say LEFT, 2 characters.....when, I may need it to pull 2 or 3 or 4. I found something that's smart enough to look for ONLY ALPHA and strip those out and place them into one column. =LEFT(A1,MIN( FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"0123456789"))-1)

* I need something that's smart enough to look for ONLY NUMERIC. no matter how long the string is...and place those in Column C (like I mention in the example at the top).

## Separate String Of Text Containing Letters And Numbers

Apr 22, 2014

I am in need of a formula that will separate a string of text. Specifically, I want to pull out the number values (including cents) from the rest of the text. This is how the text reads:

10.00 OVERDRAFT PROTECTION TRANSFER FEE
10.00

56.00 ELECTRONIC/ACH DEBIT
56.00

199.00 ELECTRONIC/ACH DEBIT
199.00

2,017.64 ELECTRONIC/ACH DEBIT
2,017.64

The data to the left is the data I am working with and the I want the results to read similar to the results on the right.

## How To Separate Text From Numbers Into Two Separate Cells

Feb 13, 2014

I'm trying to separate text from numbers into two separate cells...

Essentially, I would like the users to copy and paste data into Column A, as seen below. Then, hopefully by formula separate the text characters into Column B and the numbers into Column C.

Input: Output 1: Output 2:

Col A Col B Col C
Wells 123 Wells 123
Wells 1234 Wells 1234
Wells Fargo 123 Wells Fargo 123
Wells Fargo 1234 Wells Fargo 1234
Wells Fargo Inc 123 Wells Fargo Inc 123
Wells Fargo Inc 1234 Wells Fargo Inc 1234

Ideally, I would like to do this with a formula...

## Average Numbers In Table Containing Numbers And Letters?

Jan 27, 2012

I have a spreadsheet wtih a number of rows that contain answers to different criertia in each column.

The row may therefore have cells that either have numbers or letters.

Column A will be the title of the row.

I want to write a function to find the average value of the numbers in any row with title 'x'.

So it would look down column A, and look for those called 'x', and then average all the numbers across all those rows.

I have tried to use =averageif, but I think the fact there are letters in the cells being assessed (which I just want to be ignored) creates an error.

## Create List From 2 Lists With All Available Variations?

Sep 5, 2012

I need to create a list of all available variations from 2 lists. Example, I have a list of data that has 50 entries in it, and another list that has 300. I need to create a list of all options to import into a system that would include all 1500 options if you were to make a list of all possible combinations of the 2 lists of data...

EG. list 1 = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and list 2 = a b c d e

Final list would be
1a
2a
3a
4a
5a
1b
2b
3b
4b
5b
1c
2c
3c
4c
5c
etc...

## Variations Of Words In Numerous Cells To Show Amount?

Mar 13, 2014

## Sum Letters To Numbers?

Feb 26, 2014

Tallying entires from a PDF into excel. Such that

c=1000

## Sum Cells Containing Numbers And Letters

Jul 8, 2014

I'm working on a function that will sum a row of cells containing letters and numbers. I am currently using :

=SUMPRODUCT((0&SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(B5:S5,"T",""),"TP",""),"TPE",""),"P",""))+0) as my base.

Right now the formula will work with T, TP, and P; however as soon as I type TPE I get #value.

Either way you get the point of what I am trying to do, however my cells can contain any one of the following combinations:

T,TP,TPE
P,PE,
E

## Formula Used With Numbers And Letters

Jan 23, 2014

I am a school teacher trying to adjust my tracking sheet to calculate pupils levels. I am looking for 2 potential formulas that will do the following.

1 - In cell AE I would like to generate a formula that will take the data entered in cells J:5, L:5, N:5, P:5, R:5, T:5, V:5, X:5, Z:5, AB:5 and AD:5 and give an average level.

2 - In cell AH is it possible to generate a formula that will calculate how many levels of progress the pupils are making - In other words I need Cell I to be calculated against cell J to see how much progress the pupils are making - for example if in cell I:5, a pupil is was given a 3a, and then in cell J:5 is given a 4b, they will have made 2 sub levels of progress. As well as this, can that progress then be averaged out across cells I:5, K:5, L:5, M:5, O:5, Q:5, S:5, U:5, W:5, Y:5, AA:5 and AC:5 to give an overall number of of levels of progress? An then..... can I colour co-ordinate the cell so that if the pupils are making 3 or more sub levels of progress it turns green, 2 sub levels orange and 1 sub level red?

Levels work like this

3c
3b
3a
4c
4b
4a
5c
5b
5a and so on

## Allow Only Letters In Cell (no Numbers)?

Oct 7, 2010

How do I do data validation/cell formatting so that only alphabetic characters can be entered and no numbers?

(We use the cell for First Name, Last Name, etc. and I don't want potential entries like Mr. 56565 55454 because the cells are formatted as text and allow alphabet and numbers.)

I tried =NOT(ISNUMBER(H6)) for Data Validation, but that didn't work.

## Converting Numbers To Letters

Jun 26, 2007

We are doing a database conversion and I have been tasked with converting all our old promotion codes to a new system. The long and the short of it is this:

I am trying to write an equation that will look at two cells (say A1 & B1) which when put together could be one of the following numbers (01,02,03,04,05,06,07,08,09,10,11,12) and translate them to a letter (A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,J,K,M,N)

So 01=A, 02=B and so on...

I was trying to use if statements, but there are too many.

## Force Use Of Letters And Numbers Only

Oct 23, 2009

I have an excel sheet where the user enters a bunch of info. In one of the cells, they enter an "account code" - this is then used to SAVE AS the account code.

The problem... if they enter things into this cell that causes the filename to fail (eg: *, /), the code errors out. I can error handle this in VBA at the time of the save, but I would rather prevent them from entering anything that is not a letter or number in the first place.

## Dividing Letters And Numbers String

Jan 25, 2009

A given string of some letters (from three to five, six) is followed by a single number (1-4). Then it ends, or is followed by another such combination, up to a maximum of, let's say, four.

Example:
xxxx1
yyy3yyyy1
xyzxx1yxz4xzx1
xxx2xxx2xxx2xxx2

What I would like to do is to divide a given chain of characters into the smallest chains which contain only letters and one number. To the examples given above, I'd like to receive the following sets:

xxxx1
yyy3 and yyyy1
xyzxx1 and yxz4 and xzx1
... and so on

Is it somehow possible to do it with simple functions? Or is VB necessary (which sadly I don't know)?
