I'm sure this is mighty easy, but I'm hoping to take Column A which currently has names written in it in the form "Joe Bloggs" and split it into two columns, "Joe" in Column B and "Bloggs" in Column C. All names are enterred seperated by a space.
I recently got this task by my work employer to transfer information from several non-organized Excel-documents into one, complete and organized one.
The thing I have to organize right now is a column with thousands of zipcodes and zones in one single cell, only separated by spaces, like this:
Zipcode Zone 115 54 Gothenburg 443 67 Skane
What I want to do is instead of having to go through 24h of braindead control/paste is to use some easy and fast function or script that could pull out the last piece of string of information in every cell in that column into its own separate cell.
Although I am using Open Office Calc/Gnumeric on Ubuntu Dapper, if a script is necessary and only work with Excel on Windows/Mac, that is no big problem for me to solve. So please, any suggestion is welcome.
I will attatch two examples for you to look at, to get the whole picture.
I'm looking for a way to split a cell with text into two cells. The first cell can only contain up to 40 characters, the rest needs to go in the second cell. However, I don't want the text to be split in the middle of a word. So basically, if the text is in cell A1, I need to find the closest space to the left of position 40 in A1, and move anything to the right of this position to B1. Example:
Original text: A1: One green apple and a bucket of small onions that smell nice
I want to avoid this: A1: One green apple and a bucket of small on B1: ions that smell nice
I want to achieve this: A1: One green apple and a bucket of small B1: onions that smell nice
On sheet one, in the column column C I have cells which have characters separated by a space character (For example cell C3 looks like this: "L C"; cell C12 looks like this: "S BF54FR"). There are only a few cells which have more than three characters. The characters are separated by a space character. I would like the macro to do the following: take out each on of the character in put in the same row next column. (For example if in column C has the value: "L C" then in the same row column D should have the value "L" and column E should have the value "C". Or if column C was "S BF54FR" then column D should have the value "S" and column E "BF54FR".
I'm looking for a way to extract the data after the first space in a string to after the first set of numbers (always 8 digits). The formula I'm using is not accurate since the number of words that appears between the first space to the first set of numbers changes.
I am interested in some sort of macro or formula that will strip all of the characters in a cell that come after that last space. My difficulty lies in that the string isn't a constant character count nor is the string always the same.

I am trying to split a string into separate cells. I have managed to generate the formula for the description and first dlr value in the string but I am have trouble figuring out how to build functions for the rest of the string.
I'm stumbling upon something I just can't figure out. I thought I was being very clever using the Split() function, and it did all work beautifully for a while. I've got a list sort of like this:
Helloworld Hello of World Hello1 of Planet And I want to be able to run the following code.
For Each u In units d_type_a = Split(u.Value, " of") Debug.Print (d_type_a(0))
Select Case u.Value Case "Hello" stuff... Case "Helloworld" stuff... Case "Hello1" stuff... End select next
But it fails on the Debug.print with a "Subscript out of range, nr 9" error. The debug is just there because it doesn't want to work. The debug.print DOES out put "Helloworld" into the Immediate window but then still fails which sorta confuses me. The best I can figure out is that it just doesn't quite like the string without an " of" in it.
I have a column with cells that look like: XYZ - JobABC - Area 1-A. I'd like to split the column into to and have it look like: XYZ <next column> Job ABC - Area 1-A Normally I'd use the text to columns function and "-" as delimiter, however, there are other instances of "-" which I do not want separated. Note that the XYZ can vary in length and therefore fixed width will not work either. I have attached a small sample with the different variations that I could encounter.
