# Sum Cells Containing Numbers And Letters

Jul 8, 2014
I'm working on a function that will sum a row of cells containing letters and numbers. I am currently using :

=SUMPRODUCT((0&SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(B5:S5,"T",""),"TP",""),"TPE",""),"P",""))+0) as my base.

Right now the formula will work with T, TP, and P; however as soon as I type TPE I get #value.

Either way you get the point of what I am trying to do, however my cells can contain any one of the following combinations:

T,TP,TPE

P,PE,

E

I have a column of numbers and want to make sure everything has been entered correctly from our scanning software. Basically, I want to automatically highlight any cell that has any letter in it (e.g. z12o2 instead of 21202 or R705 instead of 5705), ignoring any cells that contain only numbers. I haven't had any luck using conditions based on formulas like =ISTEXT.

I need to format a column of numbers so that it will sort alphanumerically.

All the numbers have 4 digits, and some of them have an extra letter on the end eg A B C

How can I custom format the column so that I get the numbers in order and the letters in sequence with them?

I have a column in one of my spreadsheets that I would like to split. There's currently not anything that can be used as a delimiter, nor can I use fixed width. the cells in question start with numbers and end with letters.

I have an excel sheet here with the data as

1.0 Develop Vision and Strategy

1.1 Define the business concept and long-term vision

1.1.1 Assess the external environment

1.1.1.1 Analyze and evaluate competition

1.1.1.2 Identify economic trends

1.1.1.3 Identify political and regulatory issues

1.1.1.4 Assess new technology innovations

1.1.1.5 Analyze demographics

.... etc

I need to split this into two columns column A should contain 1.0 and column B should contain Develop Vision and Strategy . Ex: 1.1.1.2 Identify economic trends in column A then column B - 1.1.1.2 column C - Identify economic trends.

I have a sheet with part numbers, costs and wish to add varying number to the cost in each row, based on a certain aspect of the part number:

A

B

C

[Code].....

In the example, 01/1X/2X/3X are the differentiating aspects of the part number. To rows in column A containing 01 (preceding the dash) I want to add nothing, 1X+.75,2X+1.5,3X+9.

I have researched the nested IF formula and can use it in a test as long as column A contains either numbers or letters. The problem I have is because there is both numbers and letters, the logical argument won't validate "if true". Here is my formula (omitting my attempts with parenthesis etc. around the letter in the logical argument):

=IF(IF(A1=1X,B1+.75,IF(A1=2X,B1+1.5,IF(A1=3X,B1+9,B1)))

I have 7 cells containing strings but not numbers on a row.

Now I want to list out all the combinations of drawing out 3 cells out of these 7 cells while the remaining cells that haven't been drawn out could also be listed out one column next to the drawn cells.

For example, I got 7 cells like this.

A B C D E F G (each letter in ONE cell)

And I want to list out all the combinations like this:

ABC DEFG

ABD CEFG

ABE CDFG

ABF CDEG

etc.

For more details, please refer to the attached sample (an .xls file being zipped).

I have column of cells containing entries such as V1, V3 and V7. I'm trying (and failing) to come up with a formula to separate the numbers from the letters and add them together: V1, V3 and V7 would together give 11.

I can use the MID worksheet function to separate my numbers from my letters on a row-by-row basis, but I can't work out how to do the whole thing in one fell swoop. =SUM(MID(A1:A10,2,2)) doesn't work, for example.

i have a list of 2000 fields which have the same format IE "AB10014"

I need to remove the "AB" from every field and leave the #.

Besides putting a space and running text to columns I'm not sure how.

E.g.

frt

In the cells containing the number preceded by the 'p' - i would like to remove the 'p' leaving just the number, with all other cells remaining unchanged.

I have a spreadsheet wtih a number of rows that contain answers to different criertia in each column.

The row may therefore have cells that either have numbers or letters.

Column A will be the title of the row.

I want to write a function to find the average value of the numbers in any row with title 'x'.

So it would look down column A, and look for those called 'x', and then average all the numbers across all those rows.

I have tried to use =averageif, but I think the fact there are letters in the cells being assessed (which I just want to be ignored) creates an error.

Tallying entires from a PDF into excel. Such that

c=1000

d=15000

e=50000

f=100000

g=250000

h=500000

i=1000000

j=5000000

k=2500000

l=50000000

In a cell I would like to type =c+d+c for example and have it say 17,000 rather then me having to type in =1000+15000+1000.

I am a school teacher trying to adjust my tracking sheet to calculate pupils levels. I am looking for 2 potential formulas that will do the following.

1 - In cell AE I would like to generate a formula that will take the data entered in cells J:5, L:5, N:5, P:5, R:5, T:5, V:5, X:5, Z:5, AB:5 and AD:5 and give an average level.

2 - In cell AH is it possible to generate a formula that will calculate how many levels of progress the pupils are making - In other words I need Cell I to be calculated against cell J to see how much progress the pupils are making - for example if in cell I:5, a pupil is was given a 3a, and then in cell J:5 is given a 4b, they will have made 2 sub levels of progress. As well as this, can that progress then be averaged out across cells I:5, K:5, L:5, M:5, O:5, Q:5, S:5, U:5, W:5, Y:5, AA:5 and AC:5 to give an overall number of of levels of progress? An then..... can I colour co-ordinate the cell so that if the pupils are making 3 or more sub levels of progress it turns green, 2 sub levels orange and 1 sub level red?

Levels work like this

3c

3b

3a

4c

4b

4a

5c

5b

5a and so on

How do I do data validation/cell formatting so that only alphabetic characters can be entered and no numbers?

(We use the cell for First Name, Last Name, etc. and I don't want potential entries like Mr. 56565 55454 because the cells are formatted as text and allow alphabet and numbers.)

I tried =NOT(ISNUMBER(H6)) for Data Validation, but that didn't work.

We are doing a database conversion and I have been tasked with converting all our old promotion codes to a new system. The long and the short of it is this:

I am trying to write an equation that will look at two cells (say A1 & B1) which when put together could be one of the following numbers (01,02,03,04,05,06,07,08,09,10,11,12) and translate them to a letter (A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,J,K,M,N)

So 01=A, 02=B and so on...

I was trying to use if statements, but there are too many.

I have an excel sheet where the user enters a bunch of info. In one of the cells, they enter an "account code" - this is then used to SAVE AS the account code.

The problem... if they enter things into this cell that causes the filename to fail (eg: *, /), the code errors out. I can error handle this in VBA at the time of the save, but I would rather prevent them from entering anything that is not a letter or number in the first place.

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)?
