Search On Carriage Returns/characters
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!)..?

Carriage Return In VBA
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"

Deleting Text After Carriage Return
A cell contains the name, tel number and address of a user. Those 3 fields are separated by a carriage return (alt+enter) in the cell. I need a macro to keep only the name, which is on the first line of the cell. The macro should be generic and should work for any particular name.

Combining Cells Into One, But Seperated By Carriage Return
I have rows of data in one column. I want to combine them all into one cell and have each row on a new line.

I've tried =A1 & char(10) & A2, (and a bunch of other char(#s) for carriage return) but it just shows an open box in place of the char().

Replace Line Feed With Carriage Return In Text File
If I write a multi-line text in a cell (then go down with alt+enter) and after copy the cell pasting on Notepad, it display before inverted commas and after textual content.

Instead, if I select directly the content from the formula bar, it isn't happen.

Do exist a way for copy and paste directly from the cell without select from the formula bar?

Maybe with a macro?

Conditioally Insert Characters To Beginning Of Cell
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?

Macro: Return 1st X Characters
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
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
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
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.

How To Add Three And Five Characters Between Text?
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 .
....
....

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).

Too Many Characters In Cell
I have a spreadsheet which I use to enter notes related to particular invoice numbers. A v-lookup pulls the notes into another tab. What I'm running into is that the notes can be quite lengthy - in excess of 1,000 characters. When the notes get too long, they don't all appear in a single cell (unless it's extremely wide).

I'm wondering if there may be a way to maintain my notes in a word doc instead? Maybe in a table that pulls in using a v-lookup? But I'm not able to figure out how to direct a v-lookup to a word doc.

Counting Characters
I have 62,000 lines - and some of the cells contain 4 numbers, and some of the cells contain a sequence with two letters followed by 8 numbers

I want to count how many cells have the sequence of two letters and 8 numbers.

Everything Ive read so far has led me to using the LEN function, but that doesn't seem to be working too well for me.

Example: In D5 if I have AB00011111

Basically =LEN(D5) will tell me there is 10 characters in the cell - How do I get it to count the cells with only 10 characters and post the number of cells with 10 characters in column E1 for me.

Unknown Characters
Using web queries i get in a cell ie:

The last part of these "numbers" (3/4, 1/2, 1/4) is text that i want to convert into numbers (0.75, 0.5, 0.25).
If i isolate this text in a cell (with the right() formula) the code() formula gives 63 as result for all the above texts.
I may solve the problen storing these texts (3/4, 1/2, 1/4) in separate cells (pre-fixed in some cells) and then for my new data (from query) do some search/find .
Is there a better way solving this using a different way-macro?

Delete Characters More/and Less Than
I have a keyword list in ColA. about 25,000 phrases.
What I want to do is create a macro button.
when i click on it a pop up box would appear called "Deleting Characters"
It will have to 2 rows, 1 saying "More Than",, the other saying "Less Than"

So, beside these words are input boxes.
So I can type the numbers "2" and say "50"
So it will look at all the rows of data in my ColA (Always from A3 downwards)
and deletes all rows with less than 2 characters and more than 50 characters.
When it is finished a floating box appears saying
"123 Characters Less Than 2 Deleted"
"101 Characters More Than 50 Deleted"

Sub NoOfCharacters()
Dim lastrow As Long, TotP, TotC, AvC
lastrow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
If lastrow < 4 Then
MsgBox "Nothing to sort!"
Exit Sub
End If
Range("B1").EntireColumn.ClearContents
Range("B3").Formula = "=LEN(A3)"
Range("B3").AutoFill Destination:=Range("B3:B" & lastrow)
Range("A3:B" & lastrow).Sort key1:=Range("B3"), order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess
TotP = lastrow - 2
TotC = Application.Sum(Range("B3:B" & lastrow))

Len() Comparing First 3 Characters In Row
coming up with right code.

I have a row of variable length.

The rows contain text (no more than 4 charatcers in length) which may or may not be duplicate.

I do not want any rows deleted during the process.

I need a counter that will tell me the number of unique rows of characters. In other words, there may be 500 rows, but lets say there are 200 that are actually duplicate charcaters, which means my unique row count is 300.

I know i probably need to sort the data first....thats no problem

I know I need to use LEN()....I'm just not quite sure how to put it together.
