# Sum Last Numbers In A String Of Data

Mar 31, 2014

I maintain a spreadsheet to track monthly sales of a few thousand items (see attached sample data). I'd like to have a formula that would sum only the last 12 months in the range of data. It would need to ignore all of the data before and the blank cells after the 12 months.

It's difficult to update the range each month for all of the products.

## Count Certain Numbers In A String Of 12 Numbers

Jun 11, 2008

I have a field that contains the following: 012100002030

I need a formula that will tell me whether or not the string contains a number higher than 2 or whether or not it contains more than one 2.

Examples:

001000002011
111111000022
401110000000

the first loan would not meet the criteria as it contains no number higher than 2 and only contains one 2.
the second loan would meet the criteria as it contains two 2's.
the 3rd loan would meet the criteria as it contains a number higher than 2.

## Checking For Numbers In String

Dec 3, 2009

I have data like follwing strings.

WAY-308312-1
WAY-521340-1
233-6767-676-6

First two strings are correct. If I get number like in third string first part of string then we have to move row to some other sheet.

The first part of string should have text like WAY-123-13-1.

I used Val function it checking first charector only. It the string is like 2A1A-243-233-2 the it is not checking.

## Formula To Sum Numbers From A String

Nov 15, 2013

The table below is a portion of a calendar to track vacation and sick time. What I am trying to do is add all the hours of vacation ("V") and sick ("E") time that an employee has used in a cell at the end of each row which represents a month. So there are 31 cells that I need to look in and if it contains V... sum in the vacation cell. There may be a space after the letters and there may not be. They can also start with a decimal.

month
1
2
3
4
5
Vacation
Sick

January
E8
V8
V.5
V6.25
E .5
Sum of V (should be 14.25)
Sum of E

## Sum Numbers From Text String

May 21, 2014

I am struggling with a problem which involves a column with both the text and nos in that. I want to calculate the following formula.

Total = the Sumproduct of the nos in the description*Length*Width*Height.

In the description column,
1) The nos will be varying i.e x*x or x*x*x or X*x*x*x*.
2) After the nos there will not be any data.

Example table:
Work Description

Length
Width
Height
Total

Parapet wall 2x4x8
12
2
4
6144

[Code] .......

Is there a way to achieve this, what is the formula for this ??

## Non-zero Numbers From An Alphanumeric String

Jan 9, 2007

I am looking for formulae to identify the first 20 non-zero numbers from a string of alphanumerical and non alphanumeric characters

EG If column A any data such as:
123
0123
01(2)3
0.123
123abc
0123abc
01(2)3abc
0.123abc
a1b2c3
1a2b3c

Then the corresponding row for column B would return 123

Using help from my maths Prof and some IT bods, i have so-far come up with the array-formula:

=1*MID(A7,MATCH(FALSE,ISERROR(1/MID(A7,ROW(1:100),1)),0),20)

assuming that the total string is not more than 100 characters.

## Formatting Numbers In A String

Apr 7, 2007

is there a way to have the number formatting in Text() variable? For instance, I want to reference a cell that can change between \$1.00 and \$10,000,000.00.

Let's say that in A3, the number turns out to be \$10,000.00.

When I put in text(a3,"\$0.00") it spits out \$10000.00. But if I go the other route and go text(a3,"\$000,000,000) it displays "\$000,010,000.00".

## Extracting Certain Numbers From String

Feb 6, 2009

I have not managed to find exactly what I am looking for so far..

I have cells with a mix of numbers and strings and I would like to extract certain numbers only.

I.E.
123a bcd8
acbd 1234e

I would like to only extract the first instance of numbers - so in example 1 - 123 and in example 2 - 1234. I have found various methods of extracting all numbers such as:

Function ExtractNums(r As String) As String
'Creates and returns a reference for a regular expression object
With CreateObject("vbscript.regexp")
'Sets the pattern to be non-digits
.Pattern = "D"
'We want to find all matching non-digits
.Global = True
'Replace all non-digits with an empty string and return this value for the function
ExtractNums = .Replace(r, "")
End With
End Function

## Finding Numbers From String

Aug 11, 2009

I am trying to find numbers from a string. I have for example words "EUR Fwd 9x12" and "Eur Fwd 11x15" And i want to write a function that reads the first number from a string if there is only one number before "x" or two numbers if there are 2 numbers. So I have tried to build following function:

Function NumbersInString(Word As String) As Integer
Dim i As Integer
Dim FirstNumberInString As Integer, SecondNumberInString As Integer
For i = 1 To Len(Word)
If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i, 1)) Then
FirstNumberInString = Mid(Word, i, 1)
If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i + 1, 1)) = False Then
Exit Function
Else
SecondNumberInString = Mid(Word, i + 1, 1)
End If
End If

Next
NumbersInString = FirstNumberInString & SecondNumberInString
End Function

## Dividing Letters And Numbers String

Jan 25, 2009

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)?

## Numbers Between Questionmarks In A String To Be Deleted

Is this possible with the 'Substitute' function or is there another way to do this?

## Finding Numbers In Text String

May 11, 2010

In a data report i have a column which contains a mix of text and may contain an 8 digit number which could start in 0.

for example

in column A i could have "Hello how are you 01237232 I am fine"

I wish to extract the number into a seperate column, and would ordinarilly use a mid or left/ right function, however the text infront and behind the number will vary in length, which means i cannot do this.

The number will always be 8 digits, could start in 0 but will not always, and it may not be present in all the cells in this column.

How I an achieve this?

## Search A Cell For A String Of Numbers

Jun 23, 2009

I have the below data to look at every day. The Data codes column A contains a part number and the Info Column B, the information about the part. I have in column C the serial numbers that change daily, I copy and paste this column in everyday.What I would like to do is search within the serial numbers for the data codes and return in the Result column D the info relating to the data code.

Data codesInfoSerial numberResult118Type A118F2041Type B118F BNG59617Type C2041F2151Type D2066F=9617570Type E2151F800Type FEXPEDITE COPY:570F=MEDIACOM PDF687Type GEXPEDITE:118F

Currently I spend hours removing all of the text and symbols (there are normally 2500 to 3000 serial numbers) and then do a simple vlookup. Is there a formula that could search the serial number to find the data code? Or some code I could use in a macro to do the job for me?

The serial numbers change daily but the data codes and info in the first 2 columns remain contstant - there are nearly 250 data codes.

## Extracting Both Numbers And Text From A String

Jun 21, 2007

I have a woorkbook where I have a cell that has the following apperance:

12345678-ABCDEFG

The numbers can vary in length and as well as the text. What I am trying to do is to split this cell into to columns. Column 1 shows the account number, Column 2 should show the Text and the "-" sign should not be in any of the columns ie it should look something like this

Column1 Column2
12345678 ABCDEFG

I have found a useful function for the first part thanx to Mikerickson
URL:Extract Numerical Data

Function midNumber(inputStr As String) As Double
Dim i As Long
For i = 1 To Len(inputStr)
midNumber = CDbl(Val(Mid(inputStr, i)))
If midNumber <> 0 Then Exit Function
Next i
End Function

But how do i seperate the text and how do Crete a macro that would loop through some 2000 rows and create a column A and B from Column A?

## Instances Of Single Digit In String Of Numbers

Feb 19, 2014

I am trying to write a function that will give me the amount of time a certain number shows up in the same digit place in a large set of numbers.

For example:

111112221233313
111212222233323
111312223233333
111412224233343
111512225233353
111612226233363
111712227233373
111812228233383
111912229233393

given the number set how many times does the number 5 show up in the 4th digit. I know its 3 but for the data size I need to run it on, it is impossible to count.

What function would count how many times a certain number shows up in the same spot?
