# Alphanumeric Counter (automatically Populate A Column With An Alphanumeric)

Jun 23, 2009

I need to automatically populate a column with an alphanumeric MFR0001 to MFR9999 and am currently using the formula below to add 1 to the start point (A1)...

A1=MFR0001
Formula in A2 =LEFT(C1,3)&(RIGHT(C1,4)+1)

This works perfectly if I start at MFR1000, but breaks and drops the 000 if I use it on the number I need to start with (MFR0001).

## VB To Expand Alphanumeric Code Ranges Into New Column

Jan 8, 2013

I have a column containing ranges of apha-numeric codes that I wish to expand into an adjacent column as the following example:

AL 0-4
AL 0

E 4
AL 1

H 16-23
AL 2

[Code] .....

I would like the VB to distinguish and expand the different range permutations from the first column, leaving single codes intact and separating comma separated codes as shown. If it makes it easier, I manually split out the comma separated codes onto separate rows.

## Separate Alphanumeric Value And Get In Respective Column In Excel?

May 9, 2014

Output should be:

.Column A
AB-CD/EF1-AB
AB-CD/EF1-BC

AB-CD/EF1-AB(100%)
100%
0%

AB-CD/EF1-AB(30%)
30%
0%

AB-CD/EF1-AB(4%), AB-CD/EF1-BC(2.4%)
4%
2.4%

Likewise, I have many combinations. And it is not necessary that only "AB-CD/EF1-AB" combination will come first in a row. In input,Column A values are given. Other columns are empty.

## Sort Column Of Variable Length Alphanumeric Characters?

Aug 2, 2012

I'm trying to sort by a column with one to four digit numbers, any of which may be followed by a single letter, i.e. 1,2,3 4A,5, 10,11A,75,101A,600,705,1010B,1011A.

I'd like them to sort in the above order. I am only able to have excel 2003 sort all of the numeric cells first, followed by the cells with the alpha character.

Apr 1, 2014

I would like to add the alpha numeric code "UK" at the beginning of the code listed in the excel file.

How to add this syntax with the listed code in excel file?

## Alphanumeric Search And + 1

Jan 30, 2013

It looks for a numeric value then increments it of +1 based on the value found.

How would I modify this for it to look for an alphanumeric value first (EX.: 0A) then increment it alphabetically (Ex.: if 0A then the result would be 0B) and if the value searched is not alphanumeric it would then revert to the initial bit of code that searches for the numeric value?

Dim FndRw As Long, c As Range, LstRw As Long

Set c = Cells.Find(What:="No.", After:=Cells(1, 1), SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious)

If Not c Is Nothing Then
FndRw = c.Row
If Len(Cells(FndRw + 1, "B")) Then

[Code] ........

## Incrementing Alphanumeric

Dec 14, 2007

I create inventory cards and each needs a unique 4 character sequence number. Currently I have it set up with 4 cards per sheet. If I need to print more than 4 cards, the worksheet will print one sheet of 4, reset itself and increment the sequence number by 4 and continue this cycle until I've printed the number I need.

Currently I have it only using numbers. I start at 1000 and it increments, by 4, up to 9995. Once it reaches 9995 or higher, the increment resets to 1000 and starts over. The problem I am facing is I am now starting to get several cards that have the same "unique" sequence number. What I would like to do is change it from numerical sequencing to alphanumeric sequencing.

This is the code I currently use for the incrementing....

## Alphanumeric Letters: C-A = 2

May 16, 2008

I have a few columns of letters (ranging from A to Z) - onyl one letter per cell. I need to be able to deduct them such that they result in a numeric difference (ie D-B=2, D-A=3). Is there any way this can be done in VBA? (The actual columns are in a word table, so would be great if there was a VBA way to do this, not an excel function).

## Alphanumeric Increment

Jun 18, 2009

I would like to have a drop down list for cells in a row - say B1:I1.

Firstly, having the list (with only 2 selections) in these cells to place either an "A" or a "0" (zero) in a cell.

Next, if an "A" is added then a selection of a "B" or a "0".

If a "B" is added then a selection of a "C" or a "0". etc etc

If the "0" (zero) is selected and placed in the row then no more alpha but just the next number "2" available to select only then a "3" etc etc.

These would be added from left to right ie: A to H or 1 to 8.

I might be able to do this with a long formula but problem is there are 100's of rows. Maybe VBA would be more efficient?

## Repeat Group Alphanumeric

May 7, 2014

(1) In an excel i am about to create 1000 rows of records. The first 100 i set the column to display" Job Role 001 - Job Role 100. The formula i applied from row 2 onwards is: ="Job Role " & TEXT(ROW()-1,"000")

(2) Then now i need to repeat this Job Role 001 - Job Role 100 for the next 100 rows. But if i copy these Job Role 001 - Job Role 100 to the next 100 rows it will result in: Job Role 101 - Job Role 200.

Any solution to make it repeat exactly Job Role 001 - Job Role 100 for next 100 rows onwards??

## Sequential Alphanumeric Entries

Jun 19, 2014

I'm trying to create a single column of stock bin codes for eventual conversion to barcodes. The bin codes run like this:

A1A
A1B
A1C - etc. to A1H, then the sequence starts again with:
A2A
A2B
A2C etc. up to A6H, when the 1st character changes to B and the sequence starts again

This needs to continue until the sequence reaches Z6H

How to do this without having to enter each code manually?

## Create An Alphanumeric Sequence

Sep 14, 2009

I want to create a 4 character alphanumeric sequence. The sequence is to be like this: a1a1-z10z10. If it's a number, increment 1 until you reach 10, then move to the next column, if it's a letter, increment a until z, then move to the next column. Excel's autofill feature doesn't seem to work well for me due to the letters involved, so if someone has a macro handy that would be great.

## Take Out Set Of Numbers From Alphanumeric Cells

Nov 20, 2012

I have about 200 cells with 2 different format in text and numbers but they all have a number in between right after /vgh/.

Is there a formula I can use that will return only thee set of numbers removing the text before and after it.

Below are the 2 different examples.

Example 1 : h4ffkwd1-5o/vgh/2447044/eml-anet_wlcm-h-visit/?hs=false&tok=3GMdjcBsfbfBk1
Example 2 : h38ahlur-19/vgh/163311/?hs=false&tok=1CIRLlqwLSB5g1

I have these sort of text and just need the middle set of numbers.

## Rank Alphanumeric Characters?

Dec 3, 2012

I have alphanumeric characters and I have to rank them. Previously these characters were only digits (Using Rank function) and now some alphabets mixed with them. What is the function to rank Alphanumeric characters? They are like:

1A2240E01
210003004U
216000001U
499630001
463630001
400650001

## Alphanumeric Data Sorting

Jan 21, 2013

I am trying to sort alpha numeric data like so -

PA1
PA2
PB1
PB2
PB10

When I sort, the alphabet part is sorted right, but the number part is is not what I want -

PB10 is right below PB1-

PB1
PB10
PB2....

## Separate Alphanumeric Characters

May 5, 2009

I need a macro to delete only the alphabets which are entered along with numbers. Ex: 300ML. BY running a macro i need to delete only the "ML" and the number 300 should remain the same.

Range is For Rows: Entire rows
For columns: F TO P

The cell values betwwen these ranges contains alphanumeric such as 20KG,300ML,200M ...etc

Hence i need a macro to delete the alpha charecters for the particular range.

## Sorting Alphanumeric Data

Feb 8, 2010

Ok, before any one shoots me down, i have looked around the forum and the internet for a answer, Im im half way there.

I have a column in my worksheet which contains alphanumeric data, I also have a Custom menu option to sort the worksheet but 3 columns.

No i know if i have a column contains the following ....

## Return Highest Alphanumeric Value

Jul 14, 2009

I'm looking to return in cell BG2, the highest alphanumeric value from 10 non consecutive cells (highlighted yellow). When I use the MAX function it works fine should I only have numbers in the 10 cells, but the values in the cells very from 1A to 5Z [all instances of these values are shown in a table on sheet2 with their 'scoring']

## Extracting Alphanumeric Value From The String

Jul 20, 2009

I have a rather difficult task to accomplish. What I need is to be able to extract an alphanumeric value from the string. It is a serial number of the equipment and it is always nine alphanumeric characters long. The problem is it can be anywhere in string. Example: “2156545 36 month lease NWL023568 Nancy Clay”. The serial number I need to extract is NWL023568.

## How To Get Extra Min And Max From Alphanumeric String

Aug 28, 2012

I have values in cell like,

1,2,3 & 4
10,11
8,9,10,11,12
etc.

the formula to get min and max from this string

for the first value Min = 1 and max = 4,
for the 2nd value Min = 10, and max = 11
fo the 3rd one Min = 8 and max = 12

## Parse AlphaNumeric String

Apr 8, 2013

Objective: To create a list of numbers based a cell which are present in an alpha-numeric string

Issues: "-" shows up at times without the context of numbers (i.e. MS-DRG)
Issues: I am not interested in float numbers (i.e. 37.63-37.66)

'Example data in cells (row 1 = A1, row 2 =A2, row 3 = A3, row 4 = A4)
MS-DRGs 767-768, 774-775
Rev 115, 125, 135, 145, 155, 655-656

## SUMIFS With Alphanumeric Criteria

Jul 7, 2014

I am trying to create a SUMIFS statement with an alphanumeric criterion. I have found formulas that delete specific alpha-strings from the alphanumeric criterion before summing, but I have multiple different alpha-strings for the different departments.

Right now I have:

Code:
=SUMIFS(E4:E100,G4:G100,ā€¯>1.67ā€¯,)

But I need to add in that the alphanumeric values in C4:C100 are >= 3000. There are always 3 letters at the beginning of the course codes and then a space before the 4-digit number.

I tried

Code:
=SUMIFS(E4:E100,G4:G100, ">1.67",C4:C100,">=*3000")

But that, alas, did not work and it does not appear RIGHT works with SUMIFS.

## Alphanumeric Ohmic Values ()

Dec 7, 2006

I have created a log file for work which records jobs processed. Additional code has just been added to retrieve job information data from a statistical process control program. This works fine however the spc program outputs the Ohmic value as ohms which I need to convert into alphanumeric format. For example: job value is 24K4, spc outputs as 24400 which I need to convert to 24K4. The Ohmic values range from mOhms to gOhms. Examples below.

0.003 = R003
0.025 = R025
0.150 = R15
1.0 = 1R0
15 = 15R
3600 = 3K6
1700000 = 1M7
220000000 = 220M
1000000000 = 1G0

Bearing in mind that the above are just examples of possible values, is it possible to convert numeric values to an alphanumeric format similar to those show above using VBA? You may ask why I need to convert. The log file allows manual input of job information where the value is entered in alphanumeric format. It also contains a search form which displays results allowing the user to see if a job has been processed. Obviously it is easier for the user if the job value is displayed as alphanumeric.

## Extracting Non Alphanumeric Characters

Jan 7, 2007

Is there a way of extracting all non alphanumeric characters from a single collumn?

After extraction, I just want strings with A to Z letters, 0 to 9 numbers, spaces and hiffens(-). All in lower case.

## Non-zero Numbers From An Alphanumeric String

Jan 9, 2007

I am looking for formulae to identify the first 20 non-zero numbers from a string of alphanumerical and non alphanumeric characters

EG If column A any data such as:
123
0123
01(2)3
0.123
123abc
0123abc
01(2)3abc
0.123abc
a1b2c3
1a2b3c

Then the corresponding row for column B would return 123

Using help from my maths Prof and some IT bods, i have so-far come up with the array-formula:

=1*MID(A7,MATCH(FALSE,ISERROR(1/MID(A7,ROW(1:100),1)),0),20)

assuming that the total string is not more than 100 characters.

## Cancatenate Then Keep Only Alphanumeric Characters

Mar 9, 2008

I am using the Concatenate() function to join strings from A1 and B1.

The result goes into C1.

How do I remove all the punctuation too?

In other words, I want to keep ONLY the upper and lower case alphanumeric characters....

## Sum Values From Alphanumeric Strings

Feb 8, 2007

On a work sheet I have 20 columns that may or may not have data in it. In the 21 column I want to have a sum "of the values" in the other columns. Problem is the data is in this form i.e. 6 01/17/07 smr or 15 1/19/07 gtw or 24 01/21/07.

To clarify each cell will have a value of a number from 1 to 99 followed by 2 spaces. Then it can have 2 more spaces and an id tag or just finish with the date.

So, from the example above in column 21 I would have a current value of 45 and it could change if more values were added.

Note values are generated from a macro. It may be possible to change the macro so that a comma or such may be used to seperate the different "values / data types"

May 14, 2007

I would like to use an excel spreadsheet to generate a series of passwords. The password must include alphanumeric content, and be at least 10 characters long, and case sensitive.

For example: 14sH2dA456a

Thought about concatenting each variable, but do not know how to control the random variable creation in a spreadsheet?

I have looked at RAND but can't figure out how to use it to any avail?

## Calculate With Alphanumeric Cell

Oct 22, 2007

In one cell there is a combination of number and text(i.e) 10 Inches or 100 Nos. In another cell this cell is quoted as reference for calculation. Ex. A1*B1/C1 wherein A1 contains Number, B1 Contains Number whereas C1 contains Alphanumerical as mentioned above. But, the contents of cell C1 should be treated as numerals and taken into account for calculation in the above manner. Can explain how to format the Cell C1?

## Identify Alphanumeric Data

Jan 29, 2008

I'm looking for a formula or function to identify cells that are alpha numeric. The alpha is not necessarily in the same place (i.e. 1st, 4th. etc) in each cell. Some cells are all numeric.

What can I do to identify cells that are alpha numeric?
