Search On Carriage Returns/characters

Jun 20, 2007

I have done a search on carriage returns/characters and what has been suggested is not working. I have BOTH carriage returns in the cell and also the boxes (that I assume are also carriage returns. I tried the substitute formula (=substitute(cellref,char(10),)) in excel but it only removes the alt+enter carriage return. I tried the various suggestions of find & replace but the chr$..etc did not work! Is there a formula to clear both in one (not a macro!)..?

Find Replace To Insert Carriage Returns

Jun 30, 2013

I'm working with a document that has several cells which require double carriage returns within cells. The location of each space is marked with an @ sign. A few weeks ago, I found an article online that explained how to do a find replace where the find value was '@' and the replace value was a series of numbers/characters that created a carriage return. When I doubled the carriage return code I got my two spaces. If I remember correctly, the string that I entered still appeared in the cell, so I needed to clean up afterwards by replacing that string with ' ', but it still left the line break.

Carriage Return In VBA

Aug 7, 2009

I need to include over 70 data fields in a pivot table that I want to add/remove with a pivot. They need to have an alternative caption and be formatted.
I am currently using the following piece of
With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("tytwprods_v_lytwprods_(abs)")
.Orientation = xlDataField
.NumberFormat = "#,##0"
.Function = xlSum
.Caption = "Products 2007-08"

However, I need to do this many times and it is a bit painful. I have created a spreadsheet with concatenated fields to create the above, although on one line which isn't liked by VB.

How can I make my code work but with it all on one line like:

With ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("tytwprods_v_lytwprods_(abs)").Orientation = xlDataField .NumberFormat = "#,##0" .Function = xlSum .Caption = "Products 2007-08"

Excel 2003 :: Carriage Return For Row?

Find Next Occurrence Of Carriage Return

Jan 7, 2013

I am working with a data sheet that holds a cell containing a number of position entries with each entry separated by a carriage return within the cell. I need to determine the entry associated with Accountant. The formula below determines if the entry Accountant exists and if so, displays 14 characters of information starting after the 12th character. The entry after "Accountant" is variable, but will have a carriage return at the end of the line. How can I identify the placement of the carriage return after the Accountant: entry?

=IF(ISERR(FIND("Accountant:",'Dynamic Report - WIP HDCI-Qu~01'!G7)),"",MID('Dynamic Report - WIP HDCI-Qu~01'!G7,FIND("Accountant:",'Dynamic Report - WIP HDCI-Qu~01'!G7)+12,14))

Conditioally Insert Characters To Beginning Of Cell

Feb 8, 2006

I have a column of Supplier IDs. Maximum number of characters is 9. If the supplier ID is not 9 characters long, it should have 0's placed in the front so that there are 9 characters. For example, Supplier ID is 487695. It should look like 000487695. I can get Excel to format the cells correctly by using the custom format. However, when I import into Access, it trims the 0's away even though the field is identified as text because the custom format does not actually change the "value" of the cell. It merely formats the cells.

How can I get this column to correctly import into Access from Excel?

Insert Multiple Characters Into String With LEFT RIGHT Functions?

Apr 29, 2014

I've got a long list of account numbers of varying length and ultimately need to add a dash and a dot into these numbers. Here's an example

12345678 to> 1-2345.678
123456789 to> 12-3456.789
1234567890 to> 123-4567.890

The standard format is always 3 numbers after the . and 4 numbers between the - and .

I can get to this by doing a series of functions starting with this:

=LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-3)&"."&RIGHT(A1,3) to get 12345.678 or 123456.789

copy/pasting that value into another field and then doing this

=LEFT(E1,LEN(E1)-8)&"-"&RIGHT(E1,8) to get the results above

I can't quite figure out the format to combine the multiple steps/functions into one so that I'm not copy/pasting values and re-doing the function.

Insert 0 At Beginning Of Field Depending On Number Of Characters

Dec 27, 2012

Example below of the data I have. I need to convert dates into DD.MM.YY (8 chars) for SAP. I receive spreadsheets where the date is dd/mm/yy and I use the replace to convert the "/" to ".", then format this column as TEXT. My problem is some of these sheets have hundreds of records and rather than individually scroll through and look for data that requires the "0", is there a way to insert this. I can custom format that it looks as it has the zero, but it is not in the true data.

1.10.12 data should be 01.10.12
11.10.12 this is correct
3.11.12 data should be 03.11.12
3.06.12 data should be 03.06.12 etc

Macro: Return 1st X Characters

Nov 9, 2006

I am trying to extract some data based on two criteria. The first is that one row cell value is greater in than an agreed date/time, in my case this is 7:00am yesterday. The second is that the first 5 characters of a second cell, in the same row but several columns along, are not equal to 'Monit'. If both of these are met then the code will strip out several cells of data from that row.

I can do the first and last parts of this but the 5 characters check is proving a little more difficult in my limited VBA knowledge. The second cell is simple text format and I can't do a LEFT equation in a different cell to get those 5 characters (restricted workbook range so no room). how to go about running a check? I'm thinking it's probably quite simple but trying to search for an answer to it is tricky.

Insert A Vlookup Formula That Will Look In The Other Two Sheets And Will Return A Value

Sep 1, 2009

On sheet1, I want to insert a Vlookup formula that will look in the other two sheets and will return a value (say the variable Y) if two lookup values are met and return a blank if they are not met.

Example. Sheet1. CellA1 = apple CellB1 = 2. I want to search Sheet2 and Sheet3 row by row and if Sheet2 has A and B cells which correspond(a row with "apple" in column A and "2" in column B, return the value Y. If not, return blank. Sheet2 and Sheet3 will never have duplicate values (and if they did, returning a Y would be fine).

Combine Text With Carriage Returns

Nov 30, 2006

I have 4 cells with text in them that I am trying to combine into one cell and not have any blank lines between the text. The cells are arranged like this:

A1="One"B1=Cell where the text is combined
A2="Two"
A3="Three"
A4="Four"

I set the cell alignment in B1 to wrap text and use the following formula in B1:
=IF(A1=””,””,A1)&IF(A2=””,””,CHAR(10)&A2)&IF(A3=””,””,CHAR(10)&A3)&IF(A4=””,””,CHAR(10)&A4)

The problem is if there isn’t anything in one of the cells in column A it makes a blank line between the text in column B. I am trying to get the text to the top of B1 and not have any blank lines between the lines of text. Is there a way to change the formula so that it will do the following three things:

1. If the cell A1 doesn’t have anything in it then don’t put the value in B1.
2. If A1 has something in it and A2 has something in it then put the text of A1 in B1 and HAVE a carriage return after the A1 text.
3. If A1 has something in it and A2 does not have anything in it then put the text of A1 in B1 but DO NOT have a carriage return after it.

How To Remove Square Carriage Returns From My Cells

Oct 12, 2007

I have a worksheet containing square carriage return symbols (see below).

EXAMPLES
Eg1. Baked[]Beans on []Toast
Eg2. Smoked[][]Salmon in Brine
Eg3. Ice[][][] Cream [][]Cosmopolitan
Eg4. Mixed[]Nuts[][]per kilo[][][][]
Eg5. [][]Baby Shampoo[]Fragrance Free

This data was extracted from an SQL Database and dumped into Excel.

I would like to know if someone can suggest a script to replace all occurrences of [] with a space.

Once I perform this, I can then perform a Search/Replace function as follows:

Replace 4 spaces with 1 Space
Replace 3 spaces with 1 Space
Replace 2 spaces with 1 Space

Hopefully then, the final result will appear as follows:

Eg1. Baked Beans on Toast
Eg2. Smoked Salmon in Brine
Eg3. Ice Cream Cosmopolitan
Eg4. Mixed Nuts per kilo
Eg5. Baby Shampoo Fragrance Free

Eg5. is a little tricky because a space will appear at the beginning of the cell (see above). It would be good if there's a script to remove occurrences of this also.
