# Sum Cells With Numbers & Text

Sep 4, 2007I have cells with '1 hour' , '5 hours' , '2.5 hours'.

All I want to do is add the numbers and ignore the text.

I have a column that looks like the following and I need to add the numbers:

27 skids

31 skids

56 skids

13 skids

The unit "skids" is constant. The answer I am looking for is "127" or "127 skids"

In the example above, I would like to do a vlookup in column C that matches the digits in column A to those in column F, with the output being the corresponding value in column G. I believe it involves the left function but not sure how to really use it here.

I generated my urls to online photos, I referenced cells where some are only numerical (ex. 479) while others contain a numerical/text mix (ex. 3014-RACK). Here is my url code in excel...

View 10 Replies View RelatedI have a spreadsheet where i do need to count cells values that are formatted as text but i do need to ignore the real text in some cells, in this formula i do need to add values depending of the adjacent cell.

I have attached a example : New Microsoft Excel Worksheet.xlsx

I have a spreadsheet which reads:

A1 E012345678

A2 126789433

A3 ABCDEFGH

A4 CDEEGFFH

A5 E0456783

A6 98765432

etc.

I need only the the data in Cells A1 A5 etc. which means the 3 cells below (A2, A3, A4 ) should be deleted. A5 I need the data, and then A6, A7, A8 I do not need ... A9 need and so on.

the data should be in in one below the next with no spaces in between.

Data is only in column A.

I have a table of data in which a lot of data appears as " "999" Then 'fix this, not working, formats numbers with decimals as whole numbers

c.NumberFormat = "#,##0 "

End If

' now format to line up right justified

I have cell A1:A25. each with a number, and the same text "Hour(s)" So cell A1 would be 24 Hour(s) and so forth down to cell A25.

Due to the sheet being large, I can't just insert another column to list the text. I need for cell A26 to sum the numbers ignoring the test in the cells. I searched to forum, but didn't exactly find anything that works correct.

I want to separate the text and numbers into two different cells. Basically, I have the entire drawing details in one cell and I need to split it up, e.g. I have:

KEEP PLATE 902 4 0002

STOOL 525 4 0199

PACK PLATE 525 4 0200

PACK PLATE 525 4 0201

PACK PLATE 525 4 0202

I do my indoor cricket team stats and I am having some trouble figuring out what formula to use in order to be able to sum a row of numbers where some cells may contain text and numbers or just text.

Please see the attached spreadsheet to understand what I'm talking about.

In the batting tab, when the batter gets out, they lose 5 runs. Outs are noted by St, R, B or C. In terms of runs, the scorers put wides and noballs to the batter on strike which are noted by W or N and this is worth 2 runs. Sometimes the batter on strike will get runs off a W or N so it's noted down as W+2 (which would give 4 runs) etc. So what I need to be able to do in the batting sheet is sum the total runs and count the number of outs.

In the bowling sheet, it's the same story as the batting tab, but I also need to be able to sum the number of extras given and count the number of wickets taken.

How can I sum all the values in a range of cells where the cells contain either a number or text and a number. Please note the following example?

C17=9

D17=4

E17=8TD

F17=3TP

G17=7

I want the total of 31 but excel will ignore the cells with text.

I have a bunch of cells that have City and Zip Code combinations.

Ex: Chicago 606

Fayettville 72701

SACRAMENTO 95691

Some of them are 3 digit zips and others are 5 digits. I just want to weed out anything with a number leaving the city names.

I have copied information from an outside source to Excel. Unfortunately, the information includes numbers preceding the text which I need to delete for all records. Is there an easier way of deleting this information without going to each individual cell to delete the numbers

I am looking for a formula which will sum numbers with less than symbols in front of them (i.e. they are text cells), and then replace the less than symbol again in the summed cell if initially present. The problem is that not every cell contains a < symbol, some of them are just numbers, and not every column contains a < symbol either.

e.g. I am looking for a formula which if entered in row 5 of this example would give these answers.

I need to find cells containing text (Alpha characters only) in a single column, an return the row(+1 then -1). The column contains Group names (Unknown) , and under each name follows numeric data until the next group name. The cells are not formatted other than BOLD names. I need to exctract the numeric data in groups.

EG.

I have manged using the following code, but this always assumes there is an "e" in the name, but would prefer a more foolproof method. (I used "e" cos it is ok so far, BUT this could change in the future)

Sc = "A"

Sr = "1"

With Worksheets(1).Range(Sc & Sr & ":A500").................

I want to change the character ~ with . in order to be able to make them numeric values to be feeded to other functions. But REPLACE seems not doing the job so I've been checking out other options such as seperating after and before the character ~. Details are below. I've been trying to use this formula to extract values from a delimited database which I open with excel. The formula that has brought me close is =IF(ISNUMBER(E51)=FALSE,LEFT(E51,LEN(E51)- FIND("~",E51)),E51)

14010~000

3210~0000

When I import the database, the figures above have originals as 14010.00000 & 3210.00000 but transfer to excel as above. As far as I have observed 9 character spaces are displayed & the DOT transfers to ~ for some reason. I need the LEFT section of the ~

I need to remove multiple instances of pages numbers from a 2000 character text string I have dumped into a cell. The spacing is not equal between the page numbers but they always take the form |#####-##| i.e. bar delimited 5 digit-2 digit. I tried SUBSTITUTE but it will not accept wildcards. I was thinking of looping through a SEARCH. The numbers are ordered ie |00001-01| to |00001-25| then |00002-01| etc, stopping at 25. This might lend to looping but I couldn't wrap my head around the VBA to accomplish that. A sample of the text

i m creating a macro to delete extra characters in a column. I have over 200,000.00 records in one column which consists of numbers with characters. For example:

#80723666

-80726960

80730187--

/ 80730279

80736277 /

( )80739210

* 80739823

& 80735380

80796440 @

## 80722138

if anybody can come up with a macro, so that I can just have the numbers and nothing else. I would like to exclude the following -~!@#$%^&*()_=+?/.";:|][{},^` within a cell.

I have to fill out forms for work and some of the info is the same and isd put on seperate sheets. On sheet one I have cells with the information that is the same on the different forms on shhets 2 and 3 i have the forms.

How can i do a formula that copies the above values exactually to a cell ona another sheet

my spreadsheet has duplicate serial numbers in column A and the corresponding row in column B has mutliple descriptions for the same serial number. I need to combine those descriptions into 1 cell rather than having multiple rows for the same serial number. is there an IF formula that I can combine with a concatenate that will capture what I need?

View 1 Replies View RelatedIn Column A, each cell up to A2197 has had data manually entered. A2194 has data AD453302085PIND, A2195 has data AD453302086PIND, A2196 has data AD453302087PIND.

Following on from A2197, I need to increment each cell by one number. I have modified the following solutions which were provided yesterday ="AD"&RIGHT(LEFT(A2196,5),3)+1&"PIND" and

=LEFT(A2196,2)&123+ROW(A2196)&RIGHT(A2196,3).

Say the Range is (D3:M3) there is data in D3,F3,J3,K3,L3, and M3. I want to count consecutive cells with data from M3 backwards to D3. In this scenario the sum would be 4.

View 7 Replies View RelatedI have one cell with $20,000 hard coded (cell A1). In another cell I want the cell to say "20,000 Capital Raise" (cell B1). And i want B1 to link to A1 so that if i change the number in A1 it will also change in B1.

Here's what i have in B1 so far: ="$"&J6&" Capital Raise"

This produces "$20000 Capital Raise" in cell B1.

So the only thing i'm trying to figure out is how to get the comma in the $20,000 so it will read "$20,000" instead of "$20000".

I need to remove numbers from a string of text and put them into new cells in Excel Starter 2010. There are two different values which need moving. The first is in parentheses and the second follows the parentheses.

Here's a few examples of what I mean:

RED008 - Wickaman and Hoodlum bandwidth (0.06Gb @ 2.00) 0.12

MFR005EP - Various Artists bandwidth (0.19Gb @ 2.00) 0.38

RAZORS010 Future Cut bandwidth (0.01Gb @ 2.00) 0.01

would like to split into...

I am attempting to write a VBA function that will add textual formatting to each cell that has content. I am just learning VBA; so far, as an example I have

Sub NewSub()

i = 1

j = 1

Do

Cells(i, j) = "'" & Range(i.j).Value & "',"

i = i + 1

Loop Until i = 40

End Sub

but, as I'm sure you'll notice, it does not work. In essence I want to wrap quotes and follow with a comma each cell that contains any content. The actual content test I haven't gotten to yet.

I am extracting data from a website to excel 2010. my problem is the data contains both text, numbers, and sometimes a combination of both.

e.g. hi im ron for more information you can reach me at 6 five 6 four 5 seven 7 three 2 two..

I need it to look like this 6564577322 or 7 * 0 * 2 * 4 * 5 * 6 * 8 * 6 * 2 * 1...i need to look look the same

How do i first format the numbers written in text into numbers and then show only the numbers in a cell minus the text?
