Text Formula? Postcodes: Seperate The First Or First Two Text Characters From The Rest Of The Postcode

Feb 16, 2007

I am working on sales information which includes postcodes. What i need to do is seperate the first or first two text characters from the rest of the postcode. I have attached a small snipet of what i am working on. Currently i am using the =Left(A4,2) but this will give me in some case a numerical value aswell. For example E1 or G1 in the case of the sample attached. Is there a formula that exists where it will just return the text values in a cell and not numerical values.

Filter The Column Of Postcodes Into The Postcode Defined Regions?

Jun 27, 2013

I have a list of post codes two letter starts by region. e.g.

inner london:

EC
WC
SW
W
NW
E
SE

In addition I have several very long lists of postcodes which I can obviously pull out the first two letters from using the Left function.

However I am wondering what is the best way to filter the column of postcodes into the postcode defined regions such as inner london nicely.

Inconsistent Text Lookup - Return Postcodes From A List Of Descriptions

May 21, 2013

I'm trying to write a formula which will return postcodes from a list of descriptions which aren't consistent in their layout.

For example, I need this to happen

UB3 3NQ - APR13
SW3 5RQ - APR13
Jul 12 - apr13 accrual - ME9 4FW
Mar 12 - apr13 accural - SO14 7P2

Returned to another column as,

UB3 3NQ
SW3 5RQ
ME9 4FW
SO14 7P2

The issue I'm having is that the postcodes aren't in the same place in order to use LEFT, RIGHT or MID functions, and they aren't always proceeded or followed by dashes or spaces in the same way.

I need the returned postcodes to come back in a uniform way so that any duplicates are grouped by the relevant pivot table.

Formula: Last X Characters, Text Or Numeric

Dec 7, 2006

I am trying to write a formula that will recgonise either text or numicial value as the result is used with a match formula. In column C I have data as follows:

1400 SBY
1230 9985
ADO

I am using a =--RIGHT(C4,4) formula in column E to get the required data and then using my match formula to extract other data. How can I rewrite the above formula so that it can read either text or numbers that will allow my match formula to work.

Formula To Split Text Into Groups Of 30 Characters But Control As Well

May 28, 2014

I have previous been given the below macro from here that splits a string of text in one cell into groups of 30 and then puts them into several cells, works perfectly.

What I would like to incorpate now is the ability to overide the point at which it splits the text.
i.e. if the inputter puts a "|" (for example) in the original text, this will cause a split in the text and it will restart its 30 count from this point onwards.

Example of what I would like to achieve:

Cell A1 = I would like to change this string of text into groups of 30, where this appears | I would like it to start a new split of 30s from this point on wards and again if another one of these | appears in the text.

Cell B1 = I WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE THIS
Cell C1 = STRING OF TEXT INTO GROUPS OF
Cell D1 = 30, WHERE THIS APPEARS

Excel 2007 :: Ensure Cell Postcode Have 8 Characters (including Spaces)

Oct 8, 2012

Excel 2007.I have a list of postcodes (UK) which have different lengths of characters (including spaces) from 6-8, however our system seems to add additional spaces inbetween the postcode, so it could have upto 11/12 characters (inc spaces) Below is what could come out:

EH21 6PQ - 1 Space (8 Char)
EH12 9HG - 3 Spaces (10 Char)
E1 8DF - 3 Spaces (8 Char)
LL5 1GH - 2 Spaces (8 Char)
L5 1FG - 1 Space (6 Char)

What I need is a formula to ensure each postcode only has 8 characters by inserting spaces between if there's less than 8 char and trimming if there's more than 8 char

So from the above postcodes the desired results would be:

EH21 6PQ - 1 Space (8 Char) - This would be correct
EH12 9HG - 3 Spaces (10 Char) - Trim off 2 spaces from the middle
E1 8DF - 3 Spaces (8 Char) - This would be correct
LL5 1GH - 2 Spaces (8 Char) - This would be correct
L5 1FG - 1 Space (6 Char) - Insert 2 spaces in the middle

Validate Cell For Text Length & Characters In Text

Mar 13, 2008

I have a cell (B2) I would like to apply multiple data validations to.

I know I need to use the custom formula option but don't know how to write the formula.

I don't even know if it is possible, but here is what I'm after

I need to make sure the cell is 4 digits long

I need to make sure the cell starts with a zero (Because the cell starts with a zero I have it as a text cell)

I need to make sure the 2nd number is not 0 if A2 begins with 5 (A2 is also a text cell).

Compiling Text With Certain Characters From Text

Jan 31, 2008

I frequently need to extract email addresses from huge amounts of text, like 40+ pages long, etc... I was wondering if a macro could be developed somehow to leave me with a stack of email addresses. I suppose the macro would have to test each piece of text for an "@" and a ".com" and then stack only those terms in a column somewhere. Any ideas on how to do this? I am not macro savvy AT ALL...

Modifying Formula To Get First Part Of Postcode

Mar 7, 2012

I have this function that checks a postcode and returns a value using the first part of the postcode.

What i would like to know is how to modify the function so if there is only the first part of a postcode already entered, it looks for that.

At the moment sometimes i get #N/A even though i know that value is in there.

Code:

=INDEX(U$4:U$1068,LOOKUP(1068,MATCH(IF({0,1},LEFT(B338,FIND(" ",B338)-1),LEFT(B338,1+ISERR(MID(B338,2,1)+0))),T$4:T$1068,0)))

How To Add Three And Five Characters Between Text?

Jun 9, 2009

I've searched Excel's Help but still unsure how to do this. I hope excel experts here can lend me a hand...

I have literally thousands of words in a single columns column which looks like this:

absah
absen
absenan
absensi
abses
absis
absolusi
absolut
absolutisme
...
...
...
etc

My question is what formula if i'd have to enter to add three spaces between characters and five characters at every end of the word so it should look like this?:

a b s a h .
a b s e n .
a b s e n a n .
....
....
etc

Note i have entered a full stop at the end of the example above to make the five spaces visible in this demonstration (I dont need the period character inserted at all).

Find And Replace Formula For Locating Short Text Within Larger Text?

Jan 7, 2014

I have an existing Cash Flow Report that has a column of abbreviated/shortened (WBS Element) title where each cell contains a unique three lettered/numbered amount of characters (Example: 200). These three abbreviated character cells are specific and relate to their full/longer (SAP WBS Element) title (Example: WBS DWRRI-BW066-200).

In my attached excel model (Find, Locate, and Align WBS Elements to Cash Flow Report.xlsx), I need a formula for the, "Cash Flow Report WBS Elements" sheet in cells B3 thru B11 that will look at the abbreviated three lettered/numbered (WBS Element) titles in cells C3 thru C11, then search and recognize its unique counterpart contained in the, "SAP WBS Elements Export" sheet and return this full/longer (SAP WBS Element) title to the, "Cash Flow Report WBS Elements" sheet in cells B3 thru. B11, just to the left of its abbreviated/shortened (WBS Element) title.

Formula To Find Specific Text And Replace With Alternate Text?

Mar 4, 2014

I have a worksheet with several columns. I need a formula to search column D only and each time a specific location is identified to replace that location with alternate text. Example (ORIGNAL TEXT):

Column Dtext to text help.xlsx
BIRD
FISH
DOG
BAT
BUG

I need to search that listing and each time the word BIRD is mentioned have it replaced with FEATHERS and each time DOG is listed have it replaced with TAILS Final result would look like:

FEATHERS
FISH
TAILS
BAT
BUG

All other text should stay the same and replacement text should appear in the cell of the text it is replacing. This is a sheet used by multiple people several times a day and so the Find/Replace option really won't work.

Have working on this for at least 6 months and it just isn't going to happen for me. I thought I could use a Conditional format, but that is producing no results either.

Cell Will Not Display All Text Characters? !

Aug 14, 2008

I pasted in 1369 characters (including spaces) to a cell, and NO MATTER what I try, all characters will not print.

If I have the cell up for formatting on the function line, all text can be seen, but for some reason it cuts off the last sentance or more and will not show it in print preview.

I've tried all kinds of cell text formatting, cell merging, etc. with no luck. The only work around I found is to just have the "missing text" on the following row.
