Adding A Cell In A Text String

Aug 10, 2009

I was able to find the syntax to add a cell within a text string but I am having a formatting problem. The cells which I am adding were using formulas that left decimals. Although I turned off all of the decimals on the cell, the values when I used the cell within the text string included all of the decimals and in some cases 6 or more decimal places. Is there a way to keep the formatting of the cell?

Adding Text To The Start And End Of A Cells Text In Another Cell?

Nov 28, 2013

I have some text I wish to add some content to the front and back of it. i.e. the text in the cell is "214.212.134.62" and I want to add "http://" to the front of it and ":9999" to the back to it, so it looks like "http://214.212.134.62:9999" in a different cell.

Search Cell For Text String And Paste Text In Based On Finding?

Jun 29, 2014

I need to create a macro to do the following:

Search the activecell for a text string (a), and then either paste in text string (b) at the end of the cell if (a) is found, or text string (c) if (a) is not found.

For example, if the activecell has "AA/" in it, I want the cell to become "AA/01" (pasting in "01" at the end), and if the cell has just "AA" in it, I want it to still become "AA/01" (pasting "/01" at the end). The macro will be linked to a commandbutton.

Delete Row If Cell Contains Certain Text As Part Of Text String?

May 15, 2014

I have a column of data with letters in each cell, no numerical, only alpha. Now, some of those cells contain the letters "adj sub" as part of the text string in each cell. "Adj sub" is always at the beginning of the text string. As an example, a cell will look like this - "adj sub mhm". I want to delete rows whose cell description does not contain "adj sub" as part of the text in the cell.

Check If Text String In Cell With Other Text Is In List

Mar 27, 2008

I have a sheet in which some of the cells have two strings separated by a linefeed. I have come up with a cumbersome formula which will let me check if either of the two strings is a member of a list stored on another sheet. However, it fails if there is only one string in the cell, presumably as there is no linefeed for the formula to find. How can I modify the formula to cope with this situation?

There are also on occasions, three strings in the cell, but I can't seem to access the middle string with the formula. Simplified spreadsheet attached to show the problem. This must be formula-based, as we have a no VBA policy. If you think there is better way of doing this, please let me know.

Adding Text To One Cell

Oct 18, 2007

I have Abbreviation in column A and their full description in column B. I need them both (A + B) to be in column C.

Eg:
in column A
AVER
ANNU
BEFO
CALC
NETP
Blank cell
TOTA
SUBT
GRAN

In column B
Average
Annual Leave
Before Tax
Calculated
Net Profit
Blank cell
Total
Sub Total
Grand Total

In column C at cell C1
AVER Average
ANNU Annual Leave
BEFO Before Tax
CALC Calculated
NETP Net Profit

In column C7
TOTA Total
SUBT Sub Total
GRAN Grand Total

I am manually type this and using ALT+ENTER keys to place cells together in column C

If I can have VB code to do this task would be great. The code is to add a group of cell in column A and B then place them in column C and also reverse them back to where they were if I needed to.

Im trying to attach the HTML file if I can, otherwise, please see the above example ....

Sum If Cell Contains Text String?

Jul 3, 2014

Below is the code I started:

[Code] ......

The range contains a list of names. I want the sub to start with the first name and sum the value(long) which are in 7 columns to the left of the text string. Once this procedure has been done for the first name, it should go back up to the second name and do the same and so on. Once done I will return the name (cell A1 in another sheet) and its respective sum (cell B1 in another sheet) so that I have the list of names with their respective sum.

Sum function using an offset of 7 columns to the left?

Stop Squares When Adding TextBox Text To Cell

Nov 8, 2006

In a userform i have created an textbox. The user types some text in it and after clicking an OK-Button this text must be copied to a cell To allow multiple lines (enter = new line in textbox) i have changed the textbox property EnterKeyBehavior to True. The problem is that after copying this textbox1.text to a cell in see square blocks in the cell.

line1[]
line2

instead of
line1
line2

I use the following code to copy the text into a cell:

Private Sub CommandButtonOK_Click()
Dim TextboxText As String
TextboxText = TextBox1.Text
ActiveCell.Value = TextboxText
Unload Me
End Sub

how to avoid this [] (should be like alt-enter in a cell)

Search Cell To See If It Contains Certain String Of Text

Jun 13, 2014

I need to find a formula which will search a list of cells looking for a particular text string. If it doesn't find this text string it then needs to search for the next one. For instance if I had a list of product codes: ABCD1234, BCD1234, ABCD2345, CDE23456, BCD2345 I want the formula to look up and see if the cell contains the text ABCD and if so return ABCD as the value, if not I want it to go on and see if the cell contains BCD and return the value BCD, if not then go on and search the value CDE etc. It seems like an easy job to do manually but I have a list of over 3000 codes to do this.

Return A Value If Cell Contains Rather Than = A Text String

Nov 16, 2004

I want a formula or function that will return a count value if a cell contains a string rather than returning a value if the cell equals a value. For example, =COUNTIF(A$1:A$19703,F1) returns a value to cells in column G if the value in column F equals any exactly matching value in A. I need a formula that works like the filter option "contains" so that if any cells in col A merely contain a string rather than exactly match or equal a string from column F I can get a count value returned.

Search Each Cell In Row For Text String

Jun 11, 2008

I am using VB and need to search each cell in the row for a string "U30". If it appears, then I need to grab that plus the next three digits, "U30XXX". Otherwise, I need to grab the last six in that row (=RIGHT(M2,6)). I am not sure how to structure the If statement in VB. I searched the forum and help files, but was not sure what to do from here. Currently, I have...

Range("I2").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=RIGHT(RC[4],6)"

Range("I2").Select
Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("I2", Cells(Rows.Count, "I")), Type:=xlFillDefault

Extract Data From Text String In Cell

Apr 13, 2012

I have a worksheet with over 10,000 records. The column that lists where a person is willing to relocate can have up to 60 city/state entries in one cell.

Here is an example of what appears in one cell - this is exactly how it appears:

ASAI Los Angeles (XX , CA
DFO Pacific (XX ONLY), CA
DFO Pacific Area Analyst Laguna Niguel (XX ONLY), CA
SAI Los Angeles (XX ONLY), CA
Ldr Los Angeles El Segundo POD (XX ONLY), CA
Ldr Los Angeles Long Beach POD (XX ONLY), CA
Ldr Los Angeles POD (XX ONLY), CA
Senior Ldr (XXXX) Washington (XX ONLY), DC

What I need to do is be able to sort on city and state, so I wanted to be able to extract and separate the city and state. I tried using a find/replace (CTRL J) to enter a semicolon between each entry and thought I could do text to columns to separate, but that doesn't work.

How I could extract this information? Notice that the first entry is missing ) - that is throughout the records.

Insert Pic Into Comment For Every Cell That Has Text Containing String .jpg Or .png

May 10, 2009

I need a nudge in the right direction with how to amend the below code so that it :
1: cycles though all cells in a workbook, and sees whether the text reference of the cell contains a picture filename (i.e. searches for .png or .jpg in the cell contents)
3: if (1) is correct, it retrieves the picture from "C:/Users/jeff/Documents/Standards/" and pastes it as a cell comment background in the cell to the right (and overwrites any comment backgrounds that might already exist there)

The code below does something a bit different: it looks in a defined range, then adds a comment with a background picture retrieved based on the text in the cell to the left.

I'm sure this is a pretty basic change, but my VBA skills aren't up to it...I've only just started reading though Walkenbach's Power Programming! I'm using Excel 2007

Sub InsertComment()
'www.contextures.comxlcomments03.html
Dim rngList As Range
Dim c As Range
Dim cmt As Comment
Dim strPic As String

On Error Resume Next

Set rngList = Range("A1:A5")
strPic = "C:/Users/jeff/Documents/Standards/"
