Separating Items With Comma

i have many many cells that have text like the following:


what i would like is to have it show like the following instead (within the same cell):


i know i can do this using ALT+Enter to make the separation manually....but there are many many cells....can this be done automatically?

also, it is possible that some cells would have only 1 item so in that case, it should be left alone....

Transfer Chosen UserForm ListBox Items Into Worksheet Textbox As Comma Separated List
I want to select items in a listbox and transfer those items via command button in a textbox. The listbox is already filled. I have no idea how to realize that.

Attached is the form I created so far. I copied everything together and matched it up for me. It's probably not the best way but it works. I marked the section where I need help in yellow.

Excluding Selections: Added To The 20 Items And Not To The 3 Items
If i select 3 items from a list 20 items to be show on the cube this is fine and works however if i then add another item to the list i now have 21 items and for some reason it also adds itself to my 3 selected items to become 4 items. Is there anyway I can get it to be added to the 20 items and not to the 3 items..

Separating The Dates.
I have a form where users can input a Date by utilizing 3 drop down combo boxes. Once they've made their selection that Date gets written to a cell on the worksheet. If for some reason they need to change that Date, they would reopen the form and select a new Day month or year.

I would like the three comboboxes to show the D/M/Y previous written to the worksheet. But I would have to split up the date that has since been concatenated.

The first figure in c is easy enough if a little long (any possible tidier solutions?)
The second Im not happy with it is clumsy using the fixed lenght figure "5"
The last I cant figure out probably because Ive done the second incorrectly!

Separating Information In Cells
I have rows of cells with the following information..

Row 1, Column 1: Address City/State
Example: 111 Old Creek Road Stanton, VA 25523

Is there any way to separate the Address and the City/State? I would much rather the spreadsheet be in the following format.

Row 1, Column 1: Address
Row 1, Column 2: City/State

or ..

Row 1, Column 1: 111 Old Creek Road
Row 1, Column 2: Stanton, VA 25523

I'm just wondering if there's a fast way to do this, or if I have to go in and do it manually - the reason i'm looking for a faster way to do this is because I have approximately 3000 rows to do it to. :shrugs:

Separating Commas And Parenthesis
I'm trying to separate text that have commas in between. I've got a column that contains commas and a few cells in those columns have commas and bracket. The problem occurs when there are more than two values WITHIN in the bracket that are separated by commas. How can parse the text in such a way where what ever is within the bracket remains in tact? For example: Controls, Motors, Transformers (LVoltage, High Performance, Medium Voltage). The goal is to separate everything before a comma but for Transformers I would like it to remain as 'Transformers (LVoltage, High Performance, Medium Voltage)'.

Separating Cells In A Worksheet
Set up a worksheet so that it has 2 separate sections in the same worksheet ????? I am wanting to have 2 different sets of information in the same worksheet - and need the columns to be different sizes based on the information i want to put in. Is there any way to have this done - as I know that if you change the column width it does all columns - and i only want to do select columns. For example for section 1 - i would like to have the column widths as follows:

A1 = 20
B1 = 40
C1 = 10
D1 = 20
E1 = 40
A3 = 20
B3 = 40
C3 = 10
D3 = 20
E3 = 40

This is where i want to put details such as names, dates and results.

Then for section 2 - i would like to have the column width as follows:

A6 = 10
B6 = 45
C6 = 15
D6 = 30

This is where i want to have a set of questions to answer.

Vba, Separating Ranges With A Border
I have a spreadsheet of data, and all entries are grouped by different unique reference (three digit number). I need something in VBA so if the the unique reference in the columns are the same, to place a border over the ammending data. The actaull; spreadsheet is sorted ascending by the unique references so all the entries are already grouped together. EG - So if I ran the code it would put a border around the group of rows for unique reference 126.

Unique reference

I attempted using if activecell offset, but i dont think the logic works. I ran a macro for the border, it is below.

Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalDown).LineStyle = xlNone
Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalUp).LineStyle = xlNone
With Selection.Borders(xlEdgeLeft)
.LineStyle = xlContinuous
.Weight = xlMedium
.ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
End With.........................

Creating A Unique List Of Items In Column A That Have A Corresponding Non-zero Value In Column B, I.e. Excluding All Items Where Sumif ColumnB Would Sum To 0

however this is giving all the unique items from column G and I only want the unique items that have a non-zero value in column H as well. This would be the sumif of all instances that would have to be zero. I've tried to crack it and I've tried to search for solutions but so far no joy.

String Separating Single Cell
I am trying to write a simple code for some project management/scheduling spreadsheet in my office. We have projects with multiple people working at one time.

I store all names in an array and compare those values to the cells containing the various names. It works when only one person is named, i.e. only [CR], but with multiple people, it doesn't read the data, i.e. [CR, NS, MR], that is separated by commas.

Is there a command to recognize the first two characters and compare them to something, then characters, 5&6, and 9&10, so forth....?

I tried to use the with characters command that help says will take the "3rd character space and make the font bold" but it doesn't recognize my inequality.

Separating Rows By Date Range
I need to separate out some rows by date into new worksheets, but I need the dates to be a range. Our cycles are separated into periods, which last about 1 month, so I need one new worksheet for each period. I was thinking about having like a cover sheet that defines the exact dates (like column A has the period title "P1, P2, P3,..." and column B has the start date and column C has the end date).

Then on the next sheet is where I would keep my Input data. So I need to separate the rows of the input data sheet out by the periods. The date for each data entry is kept in column M. I have attached a sample workbook explaining what I tried to describe above.

Separating Weeks In An Order List
I order sushi at work for the office, and I want to automate the reporting side of it

this is what the information looks like (bad formatting, sorry) (the notes column is also void currently)

date name order # decscript Price Paid? Notes 1/01/2009 John Smith 10 blah 10 5 Y

Jane Smith 12 blah 12 7 Y

Adam Black 1 blah 1 4 Y

Charles Dee 1 blah 1 4 Y
15/01/2009 John Smith 10 blah 10 5 Y

Jane Smith 12 blah 12 7 Y

Adam Black 1 blah 1 4 Y

Charles Dee 1 blah 1 4 Y

Handel Fee 6 blah 6 8 Y

Gretal Goo 7 blah 7 6 Y
1/02/2009 Adam Black 1 blah 1 4 Y

Charles Dee 1 blah 1 4 Y

Gretal Goo 9 blah 9 7 Y

What I enter is the 1) person's name 2) their order # and 3) wether they have paid (Y/N).
The proper version has a vlookup to fill in the description and price.

What I want to do (but don't know how) is to automatically count the number of orders each week, and the value of each week's orders.

Well, actually I can do the count orders/sum value manually - more specifically I can't work out how to automatically seperate each week. The main problem being there's always an unknown and variable number of orders per week.

One solution is to have a fixed number of orders per week which _sort of_ works, but is clunky and inelegant. Plus the names don't autocomplete then as it has blank spaces.

ex: In cell [A1] is the value "1/4"
can i take the numerator "1" and place it in cell [A2] and the denominator "4" and place it in cell [A3]

By the way, I've tried using the functions LEFT and RIGHT but they display the value in it's decimal form. (example: RIGHT(A1, 2) displays the number "25" from 1/4=0.25 as opposed to "/4"

Separating Different Data That Resides In 1 Column
I have several large excel spreadsheets with different pieces of information that appear in a single column and I am looking for a way to seperate the data into multiple columns. I have read many different articles and how-tos and none seem to help with what I goes:

I have a column that has a few thousand lines of info that looks like this:

Acme Stores
Smith, Steve
Reed, Tom
ShopRite Stores
Stadler, Fred
O'Neil, Tim


So, its a repetition of the store name, then a cell that just says 'name', followed by the people names associated with that store.

I am looking to somehow separate out the store names, leaving just the people's names in that column - but keeping the store names in a seperate column so the people names can be associated with the store name. The only thing that I think might be able to help, is that the 'name' field is constant and its always the cell below the store name. I don't know if that is something that is even remotely helpful here, but thats the only thing I can think of if someone knew some type of conditional command that would pick out a previous cell from one with the word 'name' in it.

Separating Info From One Cell Into 2 Different Cells
Whenever I get information from or from my job and put it into excel all the information seems to go in one cell and numerous rows. (I think its b/c I am putting information that isnt' meant to be in excel and forcing it to open up there.)

For Example in cell A1 I will have
"AIG , AMER INTL GROUP I , 66.08 , 1:16pm , 169.455B , 16.736 , 2.01 , 9.47 , 0.78"

Cell A2 I will have
GOOG , GOOGLE , 508.9 , 1:21pm , 158.845B , 22.361 , 17.511 , 26.29 , 1

What I want to see is cell A1 as AIG and cell B1 as 66.08 and cell A2 - GOOG and cell B2 508.9. I don't even want the rest of the stuff.

Is there any way or formula I can use to just pull the information out of cell and have it separated for me?

The only problem is that although the number changes in the cell to 1234,56 it doesn´t do so in the FX window and thus when I use the number to multiply it is actually 123456 instead of 1234,56 like it want it to be.

Insert Double-comma At End Of String
i'm a complete excel novice, but i think this should be pretty easy for you guys...

thing is, most of them don't have the 2 commas at the end and just end with the number, like this:


therefore, what i need to do is make up a formula in excel to search for a double comma at the end of each set of co-ordinates and if it doesn't already have them, then it should insert them...

i'm guessing for anyone with excel experience, this should be pretty easy to solve...
