VBA Macro - If Statement Based On Length Of Text

Feb 11, 2014

I'm having a bit of trouble with a macro designed to read the length text in a cell and if it = a certain length then perform an action (in this case Text to column)

Here is a small sample of the data I'm working with:

Tue 02/11/2014
LastBootUpTime
20140211082244.222441+000 <<

Tue 02/11/2014
LastBootUpTime
20140211082244.222441+000 <<

Tue 02/11/2014
LastBootUpTime
20140211082244.222441+000 <<

Tue 02/11/2014
LastBootUpTime
20140211082244.222441+000 <<

Tue 02/11/2014
LastBootUpTime

Tue 02/11/2014
LastBootUpTime
20140211082244.222441+000 <<
*End Sample*

The text length I want it to perform the action on is highlighted with "<<" if the length of text does not meet the required number then I want the statement to skip and move onto the next one.

I have the text to column code already done with relative references however the long text string I want the statement activated on is not always present which means that the pattern (0,3) is not always consistent.

Sort Cells Based On Text Length

Dec 13, 2007

I need to write a Excel VBA (2003) code that can arrange the cells of one column based on the character length. An example is this:

Column Data before Running VBA

(Column A)
cat
oranges
apple

Column Data after Running VBA

(Column A)
cat
apple
oranges

I been doing this manually by using the LEN() command in an adjacent column (Column B) and sorting Column A. based on Column B. However, I wish to do this all in a VBA code that does not rely on how many rows are in Column A. I have dozens of excel sheets with various number of rows for Column A. Therefore, the VBA code has to also figure out when the last non-empty row is in Column A. Can anyone offer their suggestions to my problem?

Give Cell A Value Based On Length Of Row (variable Row Length)

Jan 9, 2010

My worksheet contains data with the reaction times on a psychological test. Each respondent in the test has 280 rows in my excel sheet.

The 'perfect' length of the row, is from A to M. When an error is made in the test, the length of the row will increase. So the error length can be A to AA.

For me it is important to analyse the error. So I would like to give a perfect row length, the value 1, and an error row length a value 2.

So, in conclusion:

If:
Cell length = A1 - M1? --> Copy A1 B1 C1 (A B Cof that row) to Sheet3, and give D1 in sheet 3 the value 1

Cell length >= A1 - M1? --> Copy A1 B1 C1 (A B C of that row) to Sheet3, and give D1 in sheet 3 the value 2

sample file : [url]

file that might help out: [url]

checks would be:
column A - duplicates and/or length should not be over 100 characters
column B - duplicates
column F - should only contain 2 comma's(or 3 keywords)
all columns - check if no entries are found(empty cells)

Excel 2011 :: Conditional Formatting Based On Text Match From If Statement?

Oct 2, 2013

I want to highlight a cell if the text displayed from an IF formula is equal to the cell content.

CELLS BK10:BN10 are merged and have entered into them the following text "SELL"

Cells BJ20:BP20 are merged and contain the following formula which currently results in the cell displaying "SELL"

=IF(BM22<=-0.08,"SELL", IF(AND(BM22>-0.08,BM22 < -0.03),"NO INDICATION", IF(BM22>=-0.03,"HOLD")))

Cell BM22 is a percentage calculation of the differences between two different days of volume for this stock and that formula is: =(BH22/BH25)-1 Cell BM22 currently is calculating the result to be -65.65%

When I set up a CLASSIC Conditional Formatting using a formula (="If($BJ$20=""SELL""") to check the if the text in cells BK10 match the text displayed in cell BJ20 - I get no error messages and no formatting?

I am using Mac Office Excel 2011. I feel like I have tried everything including changing the Number selection type of the cells to TEXT. Nothing seems to works.

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).

Text Parsing With Variable Length?

Jun 10, 2014

Column M:
##/##/#### | Variable Length Text-####

Example:
01/06/2014 | Daniel Trimble-4048

I need to parse out the different parts of Column M.

In Column R -- "Close Date", I'm successfully using:
=LEFT(M2,FIND(" | ",M2)-1)

...to extract the close date of the donation.

In Column S, I want to list the donor name--which is all of the text after " | ", and before the "-".

I don't need anything after the hyphen, and fortunately in this data, no one's name has a hyphen in it.

The Close Date is working fine for the LEFT and FIND functions, but for the life of me, I can't seem to get MID to work for the variable-length text. The text will always start in the same position -- 14, as the date and delimiter are standardized. And the last 5 characters of the text are not variable in length, so they can be cut out completely.

How do I use MID to extract everything starting at position 14, and stopping 5 characters short of the end of the text?

Format To Display Set Text Length

Sep 17, 2013

I'm trying to avoid using merged cells or text wrapping with altered row height to display some text in multiple rows - similar to using centre across selection to have a header across multiple columns without merging. The guys that use the sheet type a comment that is relevant to five rows and the easy solution here would be to just type the first portion of the comment in the first row (about 30 characters will display in the column width available), then put the next 30 characters in the next row and so on but the guys keep getting lazy and merging the cells so they can type the comments more easily. I can lock the sheet or force validation but I think there's a better solution.

I can effectively "wrap" the text across the five rows the header is relevant to by using a formula to pick up everything except the first 30 characters of each cell. Ie if they type whatever they want in cell B16 then I can use this formula to break it in to 30 character lengths to "wrap" it in to the next four rows:

=IF(LEN(B17)>30,RIGHT(B17,(LEN(B17)-30)),""),

And I'm sure it would be easy enough to use search with the formula to break it where there is a space in the text so partial words don't flow over.

BUT because the text ends up slightly different widths I want to use formats to force only 30 characters to display (whilst keeping the remainder of the text string intact). I can't figure out the syntax to format only 30 text characters to display but you can easily do it with numbers and dates and so on.

Maximum Text Length With VLOOKUP

Dec 7, 2009

I use VLOOKUP with text (to return comments made by people that I have copied in another sheet). The problem is that sometimes, it doesnt copy the whole comment.
Apparently there is a limit for the amount of text VLOOKUP can copy: after a LEN() test I have found that I cant copy texts longer than 255 characters.

Is there a simple way to make the VLOOKUP work even if the text is more than 255 characters long ?

Editing String Based On Length

Sep 1, 2009

I get all my results from a CSV file. This isnít a problem except for the first nine days of the month where excel cuts off the first 0 so 01012009 reads 1012009 and cannot be properly concatenated.

DateNameItem
1012009BobKeyboard
1012009SidMouse
1012009DaveMonitor
1012009EdMonitor
1012009AndrewKeyboard
1012009DanKeyboard
1012009BruceKeyboard

What I would like to do is have VB read the contents of the date cell and if it is less than eight characters, edit the cell by adding a zero at the beginning of the string. This needs to be a one off process for all cells. Can anyone come up with code that might make this happen?

Edit Length Based On Other Column

Oct 28, 2011

I have two columns, one with an account number (call it A) and another with a vendor id (call it B). I need the length of the number in column A to be truncated to 10 characters by just deleting any additional characters after 10. That should be based on whether or not the corresponding cell in column B equals the following number "147212336". Right now, my code edits the ENTIRE column A, not just the cell in the same row.

I know it's because I'm using a "FOR EACH CELL" argument but I don't what else would work.

Code:
Set acctlengthrange = Range("N2", Cells(LastRowB, "N"))
Set dplrange = Range("P2", Cells(LastRowB, "P"))
With dplrange
If cell.Value = "147212336" Then
For Each cell In acctlengthrange
cell.Value = Left(cell.Value, 10)
Next
End If
Next

Split Text Into Fixed Length Columns

Jul 20, 2012

I have 5 columns with data in each

I want to create a 6th column that looks to the columns on the left with data in ti and concatenates all data in the 5 columns and puts it into one cell in the 6th column however put a space between each break of data so that it can be distinguished which bit of data was in what column previously.

The challenge is the new 6th column can only contain 30 characters - When it exceeds 30 characters then create a 7th column and put the rest of data in the 7th column, again the 7th column can only have 30 characters so if exceeds this then put the remaining characters in a 8th column

There will never be more than a total of 90 characters in the original 5 columns so there will only need to be scope for a maximum of 3 additional columns

So for example

Column A had two words in it that totaled 20 characters (the space between the two words is also counted as a character)
Column B had two words in it that totaled 20 characters (the space between the two words is also counted as a character)
Column C had a word that contained 10 characters
Column D had a word that contained 5 characters
Column E had a word that contained 10 characters

Then the result would be

Column F would only have the data originally held in Column A (because it can't include Column B's data as this would exceed the 30 characters)
Column G would have data that was originally held in column B and column C - with a space between B and C data
Column H would have data that was originally held C, D and E - with a space between C, D and E data

Another point to consider is if in one of the orginal 5 columns had say 3 words in it and lets say the 3rd word is the word that exceeds the 30 character limit, then the whole of the third word is to be carried oved to the next new column, I can't have words cut in hlaf with one half in Column 'F' and the other half in Column 'H' for example.

Set Font Size Depending On Length Of Text

Sep 3, 2007

When a number is entered in cell S3, it triggers formulas throughout the worksheet to populate the it with information from another sheet. If the length of the text in B6 is greater than 80, the font size for B6 only should be 8; if the length of the text in B6 is less than or equal to 80, the font size for B6 should be 10. Regardless of the length of the text in B6, the font size for the rest of the sheet should not be changed.

I tried the following
Option Explicit
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address "$B$6" And Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
Dim cnt As Long
cnt = Len(Cells(6, 2).Value)
If cnt > 80 Then Cells(6, 2).Font.Size = 8
ElseIf cnt < 80 Then
Cells(6, 2).Font.Size = 10
End If
End Sub

Extracting Date From Text Strings Of Different Length

May 9, 2008

Am trying to devise a formula that will allow me to extract a date (not stored in date format or recognizable by excel as such: "DEC1/09") and then manipulate it so that excel can recognize it and change it to a "1-Jan-01" form. Problem for me is that functions such as LEFT MID and RIGHT are very specific and sensitive obviously to any additional characters. some of my dates are preceded by "CAN BND 4.25/09"; "CANB BND 4.25/09"; "BC BND 4.25/09" and so on, you get the idea im sure that they are of differing lengths. The dates are equally strewn around as some (these are bond maturities) are 1st of the month while others may hold dates in the middle-end...15th, 30th, 31st etc.

is there a formula that will recognize the dates in the text strings regardless of string length and then a subsequent formula to manipulate the date to proper format?

i.e. "CAN BND 4.25/09 DEC1/09" and "CANB BND 4.25/07 JUN15/07"

Converted into: "01-Dec-09" and "15-Jun-07"

Not that the other parts of the string don't matter, already have macro that can recognize and rip bond coupons.

Extracting Text From A String With Variable Length

Jan 13, 2009

Hey I got a long String like this "[...] increase of x.xx% [...]".

I am trying to extract only the percentage number which can be of variable length, so maybe 900.99% or 9.99%.

I tried this formula:
=MID(G14,SEARCH("%",G14)-5,5)
but this one doesnt bring the right results as the percentage figure is often not exactly 5 characters long.
