Auto-calculate 2 Column That Contains Numbers And Words Words

Jul 16, 2009

I've been using conventional method to do this and it's time consuming. I would like to total up 2 column. A multiply B to be exact. Below are some examples:

Table 1 - Before totaling up:

2 x Button A White
4 x Button B Pink
5 x Ribbon A Black
3 x Thread A White
2 x Cloth A Blue

Table 2 - After totaling up:

Button A White
Button B Pink
Ribbon A Black
Thread A White
Cloth A Blue

I need to have the sum of the "Quantity" multiply "Product". Or in short A x B.
And the end result need to have the number and "x" sign removed while keeping on the the products names. (2 x ) Take note it's "number" space "symbol" space.

How To Delete All Words Containing Specific Characters

May 14, 2014

I need a formula which can clean up a huge data set. Essentially i need to delete the entire word which contains the characters "aceae". note that "aceae" is a suffix, but i need to delete the entire word not just the suffix, plus keep the rest of the string. i have tried the "find and replace" function of excel with wildcard, but that deletes everything before/after without deleting the entire word. i have tried a combination of formulas to isolate the unwanted words, but that method is inefficient and inaccurate. below is a schematic of what im looking to do:

Column A ------------------------------ Column B
l. planeri asteraceae africa laselva-----> l. planeri africa laselva
l. planeri moraceae europe singer------> l. planeri europe singer
origin l. fluviatilis bignoniaceae asia----> origin l. fluviatilis asia
alternate l. fluviatilis piperaceae asia---> alternate l. fluviatilis asia

Find Words - Deleting The Words - And Deleting Some Info After The Words.

Jun 23, 2006

I am trying to find certain words in a column and delete the word and characters following. For example, Say I have a column of info as seen below. This is a test of me. I am just experimenting with this stuff. Deleted (6/15/01) Let me know what you think. I am not sure about it all, but I guess I will figure it out. riviledge1 (01/05/06) Now let's see what happens when I try to test it.

I want to find all the "Priviledge1 (01/05/06)" and replace with nothing. Please note, the date will change with each record, so I need to figure out how to tell Excel to find "Priviledge1", delete it and the date behind it. So I want to delete "Priviledge1" and the next 11 characters including the space.

How To Turn Abbreviated Words Into Full Words

Feb 4, 2013

On to the topic, I have all the US and Canadian states abbreviated (CO = Colorado, etc.) and was wondering if there is a way to make all of them convert to their respective names in one fell swoop instead of writing it in for each one, one at a time. Something along the lines where I can make, CO = Colorado, TX = Texas and then hit enter and all of the abbreviations would convert. Some kind of command.

Count Words In Range Mixed In With Other Words

I have tried Sumproduct and Countif and can not get a proper count of rows that contain specific words in multiple columns. I have attached an example spreadsheet where I am looking for a result of 7 rows that contain 1 to 4 specific words within phrases. The example looks for the words: "virus", "spyware", "malware" & "adaware", and ignores any other words like "aware" or "ware".

Combining List Of Words Into New Words, Conjugation

Feb 15, 2007

I have 4-5 separate lists of words/letters and I would like to combine them in a certain order but creating all possible combinations resulting a new word. It's like a conjugation tool for verbs. For example if List 1 = be/el/ki/meg; List 2= m List3=e/; List4= gy/" "; List 5=" "/ek/sz/nnek So the output has to be (if the order is List1+List2+List3+List4+List5)= bemegy/bemegyek/bemegysz/bemesz/bemsz/elmegy/elmennek/ ..... and all possible combinations.

Preferentially I would like to automate it in a way that it straight outputs into MS Access. Also can it be automated that it reads the list from a file (database)?
(Also can it recognize the word by letters? Because the basic word that I would load the program= List2+List3+List4)

Finding How Many Words Are Entirely Made Up From Characters In Field?

Jul 16, 2014

i bought a tattslotto scratch card (for those of ya outside of australia, not sure what youd call em, basically lottery ticket/game), this game is essentially a crossword puzzle, you scratch your letters out in a box then you have a list of words, you need to find words that are made up entirely of your letters, the more words you find, the more you win ive kind of screwed up the card and scratched out words i dont have, however i do have atleast 2 words and i think ive got more, potentially could win big but wanna know how much before i go claim it

ive opened up a new workbook, in the A column ive got a list of all my words, then in C1 ive got a field where ive entered all my letters, wondering if theres a way to get excel to work it out for me (like an IF statement on the fields in column A to compare them to C1, or some kind of conditional formatting rule)

Full Cell Displays Last Words Rather Than 1st Characters

Dec 22, 2006

How do I change the Excel settings to display in each cell as many characters as fit within the allotted cell space?

To elaborate, in previous versions of Excel that I have used, when a cell contained more characters than could be displayed in the size allotted, for viewing and printing purposes, the cell would simply display (starting at the beginning) as many characters as possible. After upgrading, I have found that when a cell contains more characters than can be displayed, it simply displays the last word contained in the cell.

For example if a cell contains "Frederico Gonzalez & Jose Rodriquez", but there is not room to display the entirety of the message, I would like the cell to display "Frederico Gonzalez & Jo", but the way it is currently displaying is "Rodriquez " with a whole lot of empty space afterwards.

This causes a problem, because it is usually not evident that more information is contained in that cell (unless the cell is selected).

How do I change the Excel settings to display in each cell as many characters as fit within the allotted cell space?

Sort By No Of Words Macro

Jun 3, 2007

I am look for a macro that can look through a range of cells within a sheet and sorts that range of cells by word count.

I have 1 macro that is excellent which sorts by character count.

If possible, if this macro can be duplicated exactly the same, but to sort by Word count and not character count.

As a note the range of cells are always in a sheet labelled " AllKWs"
Always start from Cell A3 running down.
And the phrases could be anything like "car to rent in london"

As to the macro I have already for character count, it is this kindly written by VOGII

Sub NoOfCharacters()
Dim lastrow As Long, TotP, TotC, AvC
lastrow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
If lastrow < 4 Then
MsgBox "Nothing to sort!"
Exit Sub
End If

Sort Words Within Cell

Aug 2, 2008

I have a file with 12,000 user records (one user per row). Within each row there is a cell that contains all of the product that each user sells. The product within each cell is listed between commas.

I need to Alphabetically sort the product names within each cell and have the data remain in that particular cell.

So as an example, in cell A12, I have something that looks like this:

Apples, Zucchini, Pumpkins, Beans, Squash, Corn

Excel Formula To Split Words With Characters Limit Per Cell?

Dec 6, 2010

I am suffering with split a long descriptions into 3 cells with criteria 1st cell not more than 30 characters, 2nd cell not more than characters and 3rd cell will locate the remaining characters there. I think this is quite easy if I use LEN/MID/RIGHT/LEFT formula. However, I wish the formula will smart enough to split word by word. refer to example below:-

"My lecturer replied, that i really did very bad in final, nothing's gonna change my plan."

If I use left(A1,30) formula, the result is "My lecturer replied, that i re"however, the word "really" is cut half way. I am finding the formula that split description to not more than 30 characters and won't cut my string and become incomplete word. Expected result should be 1st cell "My lecturer replied, that i", then "really did very bad in final," at 2nd cell.

Sort Capitalized Words Ahead Of Lower Case

Oct 11, 2012

I've got a 96000 line spreadsheet with individual words or abbreviations in each cell of the first column. I need to sort it with numbers first, then Capitalized words, then lowercase words. The numbers aren't an issue but sorting the Caps first then lower case without getting words that have a cap in the middle is frying my tiny brain. Originally I dug around here and found a search for caps that returned a True/False then sorted the columns on the result. =MIN(--EXACT(Dict3,LOWER(Dict3)))=0 Then I found that I had abbreviations in the list like cGy and eV or cGMB that incorrectly showed up as true but weren't. Now I need a modification or a better answer. I tried a fw dozen things but obviously I'm barking up the wrong functions.

How To Get Words To Equal A Number

Mar 10, 2014

How to recreate the formulas used in my old database. One important factor is that:

In the old database, once you type in a word, it associates it to a number, and also adds that number in a further row. how do i do this?.

- i have the word "sitter" that = 10.25$. If i enter "sitter" in column F, it enters 10.25$ in column M.
- Likewise, i can also have the word "private" that = 13.50$. If i enter "private" in column F, it enters 13.50$ in column M.

Ranking Second Number Between Two Words

Apr 7, 2008

i have a column of numbers. every so often in the column, there is the word 'start'. the amount of numbers between each 'start' varies, but i would like to put a 1 or a 0 in the column next to each number. i would like the second highest ranking number to get a 1 and all the others to get a 0.

if the first and second numbers between two starts are equal, then i would like all numbers between the 'start' to get a 0.

for example:

12 0
23 0
45 0
34 1
23 0
34 0
45 0
56 1
68 0
45 0
34 0
45 0
23 0
23 0

I posted on here months ago and someone very kindly did an array formula for me, trouble is some of the sheets are so long now that the array takes a few minutes to work it out and load up

Return All Words Between Unit And Number Right Before $ Sign

Sep 30, 2013

I'm trying to return only the following portion of the text from a large list.

So, I want to have just the following phrase appear in a column:

AAM UNIT AAM HIGH 50 DIVIDEND 13 $77,666,423 $1,132,491


AAM UNIT AAM HIGH 50 DIVIDEND 13 $77,666,423 $1,132,491


FIRST TRUST UNIT FT HIGH DIV EQUITY 15 $13,140,862 $301,295


So, I essentially, want any words that appear between "Unit" and the first number that appears before the $ sign (in this case 13 and 15 respectively, but the numbers can be anything - "Unit" stays the same down the list).

How To Count The Number Of Words In A Cell With Line Breaks

Jun 6, 2014

I am making a content database and need to count the number of words in each cell...

I know you can count them with

=IF(LEN(TRIM(A2))=0,0,LEN(TRIM(A2))-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A2,” “,””))+1)

but the the cells have line breaks so this formula won't work

I've understood that since there is a space before the new line, the formula will not recognise the space and therefore not recognise a new word.
