Seperating Text From Numbers In A Cell
Hi, Column C has a bunch of addresses that have no spaces between the number and street. (27smith lane instead of 27 smith lane). Is there a way for me to quickly seperate the number and street name from the preceding number in each cell of column c? There are 1075 cells in column C.

Seperating Numbers And Text Into New Columns
I want to do is take this kind of thing all from one column:

COLA
1 blah blue
green
13 black grey brown

and put it into two columns, one with only the numbers, and the other with only the text.

COLB
1

13

COL C
blah blue
green
black grey brown

Also, I want to be able to then take that data from COL B and C and have it raw so that I can edit it easily by simply selecting row3 in COLB and change it from 13 to 4 (or whatever.)

Seperating Words From Numbers/space
I have a cell that contains a random number, spaces and other random numbers and at the end of this are words that name up a customer name.

Is there a formula that I can use that would just extract the letters only (i.e. the customer name)?

Count Certain Numbers In A String Of 12 Numbers
I have a field that contains the following: 012100002030

I need a formula that will tell me whether or not the string contains a number higher than 2 or whether or not it contains more than one 2.

Examples:

001000002011
111111000022
401110000000

the first loan would not meet the criteria as it contains no number higher than 2 and only contains one 2.
the second loan would meet the criteria as it contains two 2's.
the 3rd loan would meet the criteria as it contains a number higher than 2.

Seperating Values
I have a large block of text containing hundreds of serial numbers that I want to extract from the text into their own cells. If I paste the text directly into excel then the whole lot goes into 1 cell. The serial numbers I need are individually wrapped in brackets so I wandered if it was possible to paste the block of text into excel using both '(' and ')' as value seperators.

Seperating Data ...
I have a column that contains 2 different types of data, "repairs" and "engineering". how do I seperate the 2 into two seperate lists?

Checking For Numbers In String
I have data like follwing strings.

WAY-308312-1
WAY-521340-1
233-6767-676-6

First two strings are correct. If I get number like in third string first part of string then we have to move row to some other sheet.

The first part of string should have text like WAY-123-13-1.

I used Val function it checking first charector only. It the string is like 2A1A-243-233-2 the it is not checking.

Formatting Numbers In A String
is there a way to have the number formatting in Text() variable? For instance, I want to reference a cell that can change between \$1.00 and \$10,000,000.00.

Let's say that in A3, the number turns out to be \$10,000.00.

When I put in text(a3,"\$0.00") it spits out \$10000.00. But if I go the other route and go text(a3,"\$000,000,000) it displays "\$000,010,000.00".

Finding Numbers From String
I am trying to find numbers from a string. I have for example words "EUR Fwd 9x12" and "Eur Fwd 11x15" And i want to write a function that reads the first number from a string if there is only one number before "x" or two numbers if there are 2 numbers. So I have tried to build following function:

Function NumbersInString(Word As String) As Integer
Dim i As Integer
Dim FirstNumberInString As Integer, SecondNumberInString As Integer
For i = 1 To Len(Word)
If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i, 1)) Then
FirstNumberInString = Mid(Word, i, 1)
If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i + 1, 1)) = False Then
Exit Function
Else
SecondNumberInString = Mid(Word, i + 1, 1)
End If
End If

Next
NumbersInString = FirstNumberInString & SecondNumberInString
End Function

Non-zero Numbers From An Alphanumeric String
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 For A String Of Numbers

Extracting Numbers A From String
I would like to extract the digits below in red. The variables are the digits in all of the sections vary from a minimum of one digit to the maximum of three digits.

Extracting Certain Numbers From String
I have not managed to find exactly what I am looking for so far..

I have cells with a mix of numbers and strings and I would like to extract certain numbers only.

I.E.
123a bcd8
acbd 1234e

I would like to only extract the first instance of numbers - so in example 1 - 123 and in example 2 - 1234. I have found various methods of extracting all numbers such as:

Function ExtractNums(r As String) As String
'Creates and returns a reference for a regular expression object
With CreateObject("vbscript.regexp")
'Sets the pattern to be non-digits
.Pattern = "D"
'We want to find all matching non-digits
.Global = True
'Replace all non-digits with an empty string and return this value for the function
ExtractNums = .Replace(r, "")
End With
End Function

Seperating Recurring Entries
Is there any formula or formatting (not a macro) that will list in a seperate table all names that occur equal to or more than a specified number of times?

eg: I have a list of names(below) that I want excel to go through and automatically place the recurring names in a seperate table.

Gus
Bob
Mike
John
Gus
Nick
Mike
Gus
So Gus and Mike would be listed in the other table.

Seperating Words To Different Cells
I have hundreds of file names, and to cut a long explanation short, they are exported as a CSV file to excel. In order indentify the owner of the file I need to rename the file with a commar where you see the dash or the underscore in order to have the name appear in the next cell, as can be seen with Syma and Kevin below, so I can then sort the columns etc etc.

I know there is a formula that I can use to achieve this, ie have syma.pdf and kevinc.pdf in the next cell.

I think it works on identifying how many characters along the name and then send i to the next cell.

as you can see below, there is no set amount of characters to put into a formula.

Could I say, for example, if after dash /underscore put next word in next cell?

t5 mon a2 w6-syma-0003.pdft5 mon cst w2_dellwynneh.pdft5 mon a23 w3_MASUMS.pdft5 mon cmn201a w1- syma.pdft5 thurs wiabe w2_kevinc.pdft5 thurs wiabe2 w2_kevinc.pdf

Seperating Data From PDF
I am copying data from a PDF. The data I need is in columns, spread over hundreds of sheets. I would like the data in the same layout (columns), but need it in excel instead of the PDF sheets.

I've tried copying and pasting into Excel, but the problem is that what is in columns on the PDF ends up as multiple rows beneath eachother, all in column A, on excel.

I've tried Text to columns, but that seems to only work if all the data you need to seperate is in the same row. What I need to ultimately appear in one row is currently displaying in three rows, one beneath the other. Is there a way for excel to automatically move what's in cell A2, for example, to B1 (and do this for all data, all the way down the sheet, that's similar to that currently in A2?

(If it would be useful for me to post a screenshot, could someone reply with how to do that in the most version of Excel?)

Separate Text From Numbers In A String
Is there a way to separate text from numbers, (other than text to columns)
My data is all different lengths, nothing consistent,plus I want to put the separated data in another column.

Search A Cell For A String Of Numbers
I have the below data to look at every day. The Data codes column A contains a part number and the Info Column B, the information about the part. I have in column C the serial numbers that change daily, I copy and paste this column in everyday.What I would like to do is search within the serial numbers for the data codes and return in the Result column D the info relating to the data code.

Data codesInfoSerial numberResult118Type A118F2041Type B118F BNG59617Type C2041F2151Type D2066F=9617570Type E2151F800Type FEXPEDITE COPY:570F=MEDIACOM PDF687Type GEXPEDITE:118F

Currently I spend hours removing all of the text and symbols (there are normally 2500 to 3000 serial numbers) and then do a simple vlookup. Is there a formula that could search the serial number to find the data code? Or some code I could use in a macro to do the job for me?

The serial numbers change daily but the data codes and info in the first 2 columns remain contstant - there are nearly 250 data codes.

Dividing Letters And Numbers String
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)?

Numbers Between Questionmarks In A String To Be Deleted

Is this possible with the 'Substitute' function or is there another way to do this?

Column1 Column2
12345678 ABCDEFG

I have found a useful function for the first part thanx to Mikerickson
URL:Extract Numerical Data

Function midNumber(inputStr As String) As Double
Dim i As Long
For i = 1 To Len(inputStr)
midNumber = CDbl(Val(Mid(inputStr, i)))

Next i
End Function

But how do i seperate the text and how do Crete a macro that would loop through some 2000 rows and create a column A and B from Column A?

Seperating Data Into 2 Different Zones On 2 Different Sheets
I am posting the worksheet so that it may be a little clearer. I have 2 worksheets, the input area and the model area.

In the input area, users will input their data with a maximum of 5 beverage items and 10 food items along with a certain number of other data inputs.

In the model area, i would like to seperate the food items from the beverage items along with their corresponding other information as you can see in the spreadsheet i posted.

However, food items can vary in number up to 10 as well as beverage up to 5. Also, users may enter the beverage and food items in any order they wish to.

Could you help me figure out a way to transfer my data from the input area to the model area and sorting the beverage and food items so that beverage and foods go into their specific zones? i will be performing calculations which are different from food and beverages.

Wrong Letters Or Numbers In A Text String
So for a program I am writing, the user inputs a text string of 200+ alphabetic letters. Only 20 of the 26 alphabet can be in this input (excluding BJOUXZ).

Replacing Misspelled Sub-string In Varying Full String
I have a situation where a word (in this case "Restaurant") is misspelled in a list of about 78,000 location names. The location names are in one column, and the [misspelled] word "Restaurant" is anywhere between the first word of the string, to the last, with any amount of alphanumeric/symbol characters between. For example:

Alice's Restaurant
Alli's Restaurant & Bar
Alexis Restaurant of Waukesha
Amigo's Mexican Restaurant #2

I want to replace any misspellings of the word with correct, but since the list is so long, and the way the word is misspelled varies so much, going through manually is entirely too time-consuming.

Some of the variations I've seen so far are Resta, Restau, Restaur, Restuara, etc...

Is there a way to search and replace cells that contain the text in any location of the string? Specifically, where ever there is JUST "Restau", replace with "Restaurant", regardless of where it is in the string? This way, trailing text is not deleted or manipulated, i.e. "Alice's Restaur and Bar" will change to "Alice's Restaurant and Bar".

Convert Numbers Stored As Text To Numbers (attached File)
In the ID column of the attached excel file whenever I convert the numbers stored as text to numbers it results in a weird transformation.

e.g. an ID of 480610141001 becomes 4.8061E+11. When I do the same process in the name column, which has similar numbers, it will give the correct result following the same process.
