Text To Columns Function

Jan 28, 2010

I have a list of items with a cell, however these are on seperate lines (using Alt+Ent) function. Example of entered text within the cell below:


The beginning of each line will always start with an underscore ( _ ). The items within the list will either be 2 or 3 characters long (which includes the underscore).

The required output I'd like is (spaces used to indicate seperate cells):

_UN _OD _PN _H

I'm trying to use the 'Text to Column' function to solve my problem, however I haven't yet managed to get it to work. I've tried using the 'Fixed Width' function within this, however when I use this, it inserts an 'Enter' within the cell, which I don't want.

Does anyone else have a solution? Any help would be appreciated. Preferably I'd like this to be automatic using a formula, instead of me having to click the 'Text to Column' button each time.

(I'm using Excel 2007 if this makes any difference too)

Macro For Text To Columns Function

Mar 31, 2013

Macro for text to columns function (if this is the best way to go).

Our work report exports customer subscriptions which we call "role name". Our customers subscriptions have a valid and start date, but our customers also can purchase multiple subscriptions and we need to separate this data in order to report by subscription.

Our export has an * after each subscription, the date is in square brackets and each subscription is separated by a semi column.

So for arguments sake, let's say we have the following subscriptions:

subscription a
subscription B
subscription C
subscription D

if one customer has purchased four subscriptions on various dates, their exports may look like this:

Subscription A* [01/02/2012 12:00:00 AM]* [01/02/2013 12:00:00AM]; Subscription B* [01/03/2012 12:00:00 AM]* [01/03/2013 12:00:00AM]; Subscription C* [01/04/2012 12:00:00 AM]* [01/04/2013 12:00:00AM]; Subscription D* [01/05/2012 12:00:00 AM]* [01/05/2013 12:00:00AM]

I then use a text to columns function to separate by the * and the;
I then am left with a column for the role, one for the start date and one for the expiry date.

The roles are in alphabetical order, but sometimes some manual sorting needs to be done to delete the roles I don’t need and keep the ones I do. For example someone could have subscribed to subscription B and not in A that means that the first column may not have all the roles I need, it may be in the second or third column depending on what other subscriptions they have.

So not sure if text to column is even the best way to go?

Function For Recognizing Matching Text And Adding Up Columns

Jan 8, 2007

I am currently tracking online PPC keyword reports with Excel and need to know if there is a function that will find and match words and phrases and then add the columns that are queried for the matching words/phrases. I think an example is definately in order.

December PPC
Keyword Clicks Cost Revenue
large dogs 45 .18 $12.00
small dogs 35 .25 $15.00

January PPC
Keyword Clicks Cost Revenue
large dogs 12 .14 $8.25
small dogs 18 .18 $5.35

Now using the example above I need a function or maybe even a macro that will scan all "keywords" and find a match for each keyword each month, say large dogs, and then add the clicks, costs, and revenue columns and post them on a particular row or rows.

So when running the function it will find and match "large dogs" for each month, it will then add the clicks for all months with "large dogs" in it and then populate a column or row with the total along with the keyword "large dogs" next to it. Is there a function that will do this or maybe even a macro?

Text To Columns :: Use Function When Original Cell Has More Than One Line

Oct 10, 2007

I want to use the text to columns function when the original cell has more then one line (lines are separated with Alt+Enter). Somehow Excel does only notice the first line.

cell A1:
Bookrunner: Lehman Brothers;
Mandated Arranger: CapSource Financial Inc;
Participant: Citibank NA

(After the ";" is an ENTER)

And i want it to be like this at the end:

Cell A1:
Lehman Brothers
Cell B1:

Cell A2:
CapSource Financial Inc
Cell B2:
Mandated Arranger

Cell A3:
Citibank NA
Cell B3:

Text To Columns Function Picks Wrong Number Format After Conversion

Jun 16, 2014

Using the text to columns option on a comma separated file in csv format leads to the right preview in the text to columns wizard.

The column titled "ATTIC: Zone ..." shows the desired format in the preview window. Please look at the screenshot 1.jpg.

After pushing the finish button to obtain the result the number format gets suddenly changed and differs from the preview.

Again check for the "ATTIC: Zone ..." column as reference: 2.jpg

Is there a menu where one can look up, or specify how to format data to force the right comma placement? What settings might be wrong?

Text File Import With Text To Columns Splitting Same Text Differently

Nov 21, 2007

I have a macro which imports data from a mainframe dump text file and performs 'Text to Columns' on the imported data so that formula in the spreadsheet can act on the data. The code works perfectly well when I use it, but if a different user logs on and performs exactly the same mainframe dump and import macro the Text to Columns action splits the raw data in a different way and the result is that the split renders the formulae useless.

I've experimented a little and for some reason it appears that the 'Field Info' parameters which are produced when the Text to Columns function is recorded in a macro differ between users even though the raw data is exactly the same.

FieldInfo:= _
Array(Array(0, 1), Array(18, 1), Array(35, 1), Array(56, 1), Array(70, 1), Array(88, 1), _
Array(102, 1))

Excel 2013 :: Set One Columns Text To Color Based On Another Columns Results?

Apr 9, 2014

how to set one entire columns text to two different colors based on another columns values. So for example I have column A and B. Column A has two values called Internal and External. Column B is a title table so the entire column is just titles. We'll say it goes for 20 rows if you need a row count. What I am looking to do change the text in Column B to Red for External and Blue for Internal. I tried the conditional formatting and I just can't seem to find the right option.

I'm using Win 8.1, Office 2013.

Extracting Strings Of Text From Columns Of Data(text)

Apr 23, 2007

What I have is a column of data(text) which contains amongst all the text three strings of text in ever cell in the column which I require copying into three adjoining cells

The data I require is :-

(a) The persons name which is always after the word ‘Requester’ e.g. Requester Steve Robinson

(b) Their office location which is directly after the persons name and is in brackets e.g. (Newcastle User)

(c) The Approving persons name which is preceded by ‘Approved by’ e.g. Approved by Christine Hunting

See examples 1 & 2 below

Example 1

CR0/CRZ3651 Requestor Steve Robinson (Newcastle User) Tel: 01234 798157 Approved by Christine Hunting

Please install and configure 2 Ultra 2s (typhoon and lancaster) for use as ARTE workstations. These workstations require Solaris 2.5.1 plus the same patches as before

Example 2

CR0/CRZ3118 Requestor Doug Cunningham (Newport User) Tel: 0114 9881480 Approved by John Smithers

Please provide support to set up Cisco 2691 Router and PIX-506E Firewall to enable external connection of a remote terminal for project work.

As you will appreciate the text in the cells is of non standard lenght and the three pieces of information can be located virtually any where in the text

Text To Columns :: Macro To Split Text

Jun 17, 2008

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.

How To Apply IF Function For Four Or More Columns

How I can apply an IF function for four or more columns. for example: if the value is the same in four or more cells, IF function can type OK, if not something else.

what I am doing is this : =IF(H2=I2=J2=K2=L2,"OK","Not Equal") but I always receive the value"not equal" even when the all cells have the same value. The cells values are found using formula so I did copy and paste value but I received the same result.

Lookup Function For Three Columns

Nov 16, 2012


queens Carrots
Goja Apple

fujja Apple

Goja Apple
queens Carrots

I tried to write a function so that it would search for a word from Column C in Column B, and then when it found it, give me a a combined result of Column A and B. For instance. I lookup up C1 (Goja Apple) in the range of all of column B; the function finds it in B3 (Goja Apple); then it returns the combined result A3 and B3 (Ca23 Goja Apple). I tried the =lookup, but I think the first column you select must be in ascending order, and that wont work for me.

AVERAGEIF Function For Multiple Columns?

Mar 11, 2014

I'm looking to average the numbers contained within 5 different columns if the corresponding cell in a different column is blank.

Here's what I have currently (with column A being the conditional cells and D:H being what I'm looking to average)

=AVERAGEIF(A3:A26, "", D3:H26)

From what I understand, this function only allows me to average a single column. If this is in fact a limitation of excel and not just of my knowledge, is there a different way to calculate the average of D3:H26 when the corresponding cell in column A is blank?

Sum Function Fails: Automate The Columns

I have a spreadsheet that I am trying to automate, one of the tasks is to sum some columns namely columns O to T. Column B contains the exact number of entries in the columns O to T, therefore I thought that this would be a good counter. The Spreadsheet varies in number of entries every time. In this instance the rows are in total 200 inclusive a header row. ie r below is = to 200. I have tried to record a macro and from that I have tried to replace the pertinent values.

Sub Sel_Sum ()
Dim r As Integer
Dim s As Integer
Dim t As Integer
Dim U As Integer

r = Selection.Rows.Count
s = (r - 1) * -1
t = r + 1
U = -1
Range("O" & t, "T" & t).Select
Selection.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM(R" & [s] & "C:R" & [u] & "C)" 'fails here
Selection.NumberFormat = "#,##0.00_ ;[Red]-#,##0.00 "
