I am having quite a bit of a challenge here and am not able to code to split the text into columns. The text to columns does not work here unfortunately. Below is my situation. In one column that has the contract details I have the data as follows:
Account Manager Jennifer MacFarlane CONSULTING - GENERAL on 20-JUN-13 Function #:176749
Account Manager Janet Bewers CONSULTING - GENERAL on 25-JUL-13 Function #:176878
Account Manager Janet Bewers HEAT STRESS AWARENESS on 27-JUN-13 Function #:176828
Account Manager Janet Bewers TRACTOR SAFETY AWARENESS on 08-AUG-13 Function #:177383
What do I key in to get Account Manager in one column, the name of the person in another column and the one in caps in another column and the date in one column and the function in another column. I tried using left, right and LEN and something is terribly wrong with my logic
I have data in Column A that is from a text file that contains 50,000 rows , this is pipe delimited data that is 300 columns wide. I would like to be able to keep the columns but using the Text to Column functions means that I lose some them.
I was wondering if anyone knew how to separate the text in to 2 sheets, with the first 200 columns in Sheet 1 and the remaining in Sheet 2. The reason I would like to separate the information in to cells is so that I can investigate the data better.
Its not possible to traspose this information as the rows are nearly 50,000 long.
Here is a small sample of what 1 row is like, it not the entire row. Each "|" character represents a break and a new column.
Once again I return to the brilliant ones on this board. I read the Excel help page for "Split text among columns by using functions". But my parsing task is more advanced than what I could gather from this function.
Here is the contents of cell A1 to be parsed: Pack type,(make selection),Pack A[=4.95],Pack B[=5.95],Pack C[=7.95]
I need to extract 4.95 into cell A2, 5.95 into A3 and 7.95 into A4. How Oh also, I have many variations of that example, and want your solution to work for the variations. So here is another actual cell that I have to be parsed: Qty. discount,(Make Selection),1[=18.95],2 to 4[=17.95],5+[=16.95]
So, each extracted value will always be preceded by = and followed by ]
I got a question regarding a what formula can i use to act like the Split method in programming. I would like if this can be done with a formula not programming cos i am a programmer Basically i got a column full of data in the following format:.dddd.ddddddd.ddddd. Now the number of the "d" can be random in between the dots. So i would like to be able to split the line by looking at the "." .There is one thing though that each line does have 3 or 4 "." characters.
I have a column full of text with most data separated by commas, except sometimes between the commas there is a string, marked by ' ' , which itself contains commas.
For example: 45,'im a string, look at me',67,43,5,'im another string, look at me',78
I try to make excel put all the data into columns, so 'im a string, look at me' will have its own column, instead of being split into two columns. I tried telling excel that the ' character marks strings, but it just removed the apostrophes and kept splitting any string that contained a comma. I tried to use a special delimiter,' but excel didn't allow me to. Does someone have a macro that will do the text to columns for me, or is this possible to do with the regular text to columns feature of excel?
I am trying to write a micro code to split text which is copied into cell A1 into columns. I can do this fine by going to "data" the "text to Columns" and selecting the places i want to split the text (this is the same for every piece of data i copy in).
The macro works perfectly every time. the problem is that the spreadsheet is shared and i want to protect certain cells on the sheet, when i protect the sheet the recorded macro does not work as the "data", "text to columns" is not available in a protected workbook.
I was just wondering if someone could help me, so i can run a macro to split the text which also allows me to protect cells. In the "text to column" option the "fixed width" (column breaks) i choose are: 4, 25, 34 and 43.
I want to create a 6th column that looks to the columns on the left with data in ti and concatenates all data in the 5 columns and puts it into one cell in the 6th column however put a space between each break of data so that it can be distinguished which bit of data was in what column previously.
The challenge is the new 6th column can only contain 30 characters - When it exceeds 30 characters then create a 7th column and put the rest of data in the 7th column, again the 7th column can only have 30 characters so if exceeds this then put the remaining characters in a 8th column
There will never be more than a total of 90 characters in the original 5 columns so there will only need to be scope for a maximum of 3 additional columns
So for example
Column A had two words in it that totaled 20 characters (the space between the two words is also counted as a character) Column B had two words in it that totaled 20 characters (the space between the two words is also counted as a character) Column C had a word that contained 10 characters Column D had a word that contained 5 characters Column E had a word that contained 10 characters
Then the result would be
Column F would only have the data originally held in Column A (because it can't include Column B's data as this would exceed the 30 characters) Column G would have data that was originally held in column B and column C - with a space between B and C data Column H would have data that was originally held C, D and E - with a space between C, D and E data
Another point to consider is if in one of the orginal 5 columns had say 3 words in it and lets say the 3rd word is the word that exceeds the 30 character limit, then the whole of the third word is to be carried oved to the next new column, I can't have words cut in hlaf with one half in Column 'F' and the other half in Column 'H' for example.
i have cells with city and state in them and i'm trying to separate the one column into two columns. the problem is, i'm trying to keep the city name in one column and the state in the other. some of my cells have two word cities like new albany, or upper arlington. the text to columns feature is separating those cells into 3 columns not 2. is there a way to do this?
example: worthington, oh upper arlington, oh
text to columns splitting upper arlington into 3 different cells because the only delimiter in the cell is a space. i need to keep upper arlington in one cell and oh in another.
I have a large number of product descriptions of varying lengths (column A) which I need to split into a maximum of 3 columns depending on the total length of the description. Each description in column A is less than 90 characters. Each column (B, C & D) can only be a maximum of 30 characters including spaces and commas etc. Also words cannot be split. Below is a sample of the result I would expect with the description in column A and the 3 extracted columns in B, C and D. I am using Excel 2003.
I have a 2000 row sheet with an address field that contains the apartment number and the address. The text is displayed as unit number, then hyphen and the building/street number for example '101-1234 15th Street'. I'm looking to cut the building number from the cell and paste it into a seperate column. Ideally removing the hyphen completely, so that I have two columns 'unit number' and 'building/street address'.
I have a variable list. Each column will be 250 digits and numbers of rows will be variable. I want a macro to import a text file from a specific folder into a sheet without split it to columns. So we will work only in column A
Then macro will find B1002 wording in A1. if it is exist, it will copy the next 36 digits after B1002 wording if not then it will search A2 row. The next step will be to search and find another wording "B1001" if it finds it will replace copied 36 digits text. If it can not find B1001 wording it will go to upper row and search B1001 wording here and paste the text. This will go on till row shows #END. This means it reached the end of the list. And then macro will save this file as text file to another folder.
So macro will go to beginning to open other file in the folder and this will go on till last file in the folder.
This is the logic of the macro. Here is the sample of what I want.
I'm trying to split the address stored in column A into two columns (i.e. columns B & C). I got more than 30,000 addresses stored in column A and got the following excel function to do the job. However, it seems not to exactly solve my problem.
in column B : =LEFT(A1,FIND(" ",A1,20)-1) in column C : =right(A1,len(A1)-FIND(" ",A1,21))
First, using the above functions, I got to manually drag the formula to the end of column containing 30,000 records! I tried to use vba to perform the job the script failed to do so. I know there has been something I missed in my vba script but do not know how to correct it.
for k = 1 to 30,000 Range("b" & k).value = LEFT(range("A" & k),FIND(" ",range("A" & k,20)-1)) Range("c" & k).value = RIGHT(range("A" & k),len(range("A" & k)-FIND(" ",range("A" & k,21)) next
What I really want to do is split the addresses in columns B & C with the first text ended with "Street" or "Road" stored in Column A and the other text after "Street" or "Road" in column C.
column A : 128 Johnway Road, 12/F, Flat C, Kowloon, Hong Kong column B : 128 Johnway Road Column C : 12/F, Flat C, Kowloon, Hong Kong
I am working on a report but I need to split of text cells that contain text and numbers. I had worked in some formulas and I got stuck again when I drag down the formulas. In the attached file, you will see two tables. The one in the left is my current job. In the table of the right is how the table must look like.
The table is complete and will give you the whole idea.
Basically, I need to split the cell into three categories that are "Family", "Model" and "Phase". In example:
Cell Family Model Phase CCA CCA DC50X DC50X DCX3300CRDDCX3300CRD DPC2434 DPC2434 DCT-1700DCT1700 DCT-1800DCT1800 DCT-1800P3DCT1800P3 DCT-1800P4DCT1800P4
I have a report that I need to reformat where part of the information is moved from rows to columns.
The report is broken up into "sections" as follows: Each section is a series of multiple rows and is broken down as follows:
ROW 1: Contains data (in a single cell) about a Sales rep, which includes (1) rep number & (2) rep name
NEXT ROW(s): Contains data information about an invoice(s), which includes date, invoice number, client name, trans ID, etc. The invoice data can be one row up to as many as 500 rows LAST ROW: Contains the Rep Subtotal
I need to spit out a report that contains the invoice data only (the middle part of the section). I don't want "ROW 1" or "LAST ROW" of each section in the output. For each invoice row, I need to include the rep number and the rep name for each invoice. As noted, the rep number and name is always listed in the row preceding the invoice data. The format is always a 6-digit code followed by the name. So I need to split the data into two pieces.
For each cell in column A, I am trying to split the data between two new cells. The data in each cell is separated by a |. All information to the left of | should go in column B. All information to the right of | should go in column C.
I am trying to split data from a cell into two columns. I have tried the LEFT and RIGHT functions but as the data held is not always the same number of characters this does not work for the LEFT function. The only constant thing is that the last character will always be in the second column. An example of data would be:
I am looking for two formulas (col. B+C) in order to split every second value from Col. A into two adjacent columns. Empty cells, in col. A, should be ignored. The requested result is shown in green and red.
