Trim Text To X Characters

Aug 22, 2007

I have a cell which holds text with a maximum number of characters of 6. Lets say I want this cell to hold a word which is bigger, and trim it till it has 6 characters.

Example: word "Hippopotamus" (longer than 6 characters) should be trimmed so its displayed as "Hippop"(6 characters)

is there a way to specify how i want to trim, either right or left?
Example "Hippop"(6 characters trim right) or "otamus" (6 characters trim left)

How To Trim Last 3 Characters From End Of String

Aug 21, 2012

I'm having difficulty figuring out how i can Trim the last 3 characters from this string

Code:
FeatureCode1 = Split(errorChecker.lstErrorMessage.List(0), " [")(0))

I tried

Code:
FeatureCode1 = Left(Split(errorChecker.lstErrorMessage.List(0), " [")(0)), 3)

But that only SHOWS the last 3 characters... how i can just cut off the last 3 characters?

I'm guessing something to do with TRIM, but not sure how to implement it?

Trim Numeric Characters After The Decimal

Feb 24, 2009

I have something simple (i think) but i cant think it through. I have a range of cells that are populated by a link and so even though the value shows #,### It really shows #,###.########

I would like to trim everything after the decimal point without having to adjust format of the range since some cells are general format and others are Percentage format but they all suffer from .####### HOWEVER, the last digits are variable and never the exact same amount of characters.

for each cell in range("C4:J9")
if cell.value "" then
Trim(Left(cell,4))
end if
next cell

Trim Special Characters In Cell To Be To Split Data Into Columns?

Apr 9, 2014

This formula I want to apply it in another workbook. It split in different columns the content of a cell.

The formula is below:

[Code] .....

In cell A2 I have the following data:
|516582-001-99|414816-001-99|414816-003-99|516582-001-99|

If I apply the formula above in cells B2 to E2 it returns a blank cells. But if I delete the first "|" sign in the left side manually the formula works perfectly by splitting the cell into columns from B2 to E2. The issue here is that I have more than 300,000 records. Just imagine the amount of time invested in just deleting the first "|" at the left side.

I need a variation of the formula above that in first place delete the first "|" at the left side and after that continue with the proper work of the formula.

Trim Macro: Trim All Of The Data From Rows 2:30 Removing Any Trailing Spaces After The Last Word In Each Cell

Apr 25, 2007

I have come up with this to Trim all of the data from rows 2:30 removing any trailing spaces after the last word in each cell. The macro takes a couple of minutes to run have I got something wrong that is making it run slowly or does the Trim process just take longer?

Sub TRIM_RANGE()
Dim myRange As Range
Dim myRow As Range
Sheets("CAMPAIGNS_2007").Select
Set myRange = Range("2:30")
If myRange Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
myRange.Replace What:=Chr(160), Replacement:=Chr(32), _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False
For Each myRow In myRange.Columns
If Application. CountA(myRow) > 0 Then
myRow.TextToColumns Destination:=myRow(1), _
DataType:=xlFixedWidth, FieldInfo:=Array(0, 1)
End If
Next myRow
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Trim Text In VBA

Feb 16, 2010

I have a small Excel VBA program that pulls data from our company database. I use this to collect information about orders that have been placed. The decriptions of our inventory within our accounting software usually go something like this: [

2/24] Small Red Rose
The [2/24] stands for 24 pieces per case and 2 pieces per inner pack.

My question is... can I trim off the text '[2/24]' within VBA?

I need to create quotes, labels and other things that use these descriptions and don't need to include the information with the brackets.

Obviously within VBA everything is done with variables, such as strDESC for the description.

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.

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...

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).

Wrapping Text - Max Characters?

Mar 27, 2007

if there is maximum number of characters in a cell, above which wrapping and the row height auto-fit functions will not work? I typed a paragraph into a cell and have the cell set to wrap and the row height to auto-fit but it does not display on print preview or on actual printing past a certain character in the cell. Even when I manually increase the row height, it still does not display.

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.

Extract Text Characters Only From A Cell

May 6, 2009

This is very similar to my previous post, which was solved. Now that I've extract the numbers, I need to extract the text for the specific work activities, for example 13Z or 9GGG. I'm assuming some variation on this formula:

=LOOKUP(9.99E+307,--MID(C4,MIN(FIND({1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0},C4&1234567890)),ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(C4)))))

is the solution, but I'm struggling with making the correct alterations.
