Break 1 Cell Up Into Invidual Cells..

Oct 7, 2008

I have an email contact list with over 100 people in it. They are all in the same cell and are separated by semi-colons. How can I tell Excel to create a new cell every time there's a semi-colon?

In other words, after all is said and done, I should have over 100 separate cells with only 1 email contact in each cell.

Referencing Cells By Page Break

Aug 5, 2006

I have a macro that uses subtotals on a dynamic list to generate page breaks by Department. Rows 1:6 of the table are set to print at the top of each page and column A is not set to print at all. Would it be possible to get cell B6 to return the value of the first cell of each page break (from column A) when the page prints. (Column A contains the department names, and though I don't want to print the column itself, I would like the name of each department to appear at the top of the page.)

Break Apart City State And Zip Into Different Cells

May 2, 2008

I have a column that has data like this in it:

cityname, stateAbbreviation, XXXXX
sacramento, CA 95814

The tricky part is that sometimes there's a comma delimiting these fields and sometimes there is just a space between these fields.

So, I suppose the script would have to assume a length of 2 chars for the state and when it finds that it knows that what was before that string of 2 chars was the city.

Also, sometimes there is a longer zip with 10 digits code like this:
cityname stateAbbreviation XXXXX-XXXXX
sacramento CA 95814-82202

How might I write some VB code to loop through this column and break up this cell into 3 other cells?

Cell Text Loses Break Characters When Extracted

Oct 16, 2006

I'm trying to automate a very laborious process where text data is taken from a series of cells in excel 97 and is turned into HTML tables - I've got it all working except for one thing, when I extract the contents of the text the paragraphs are lost and are merged into one long piece of text - obviously I need to insert <br /> characters where the paragraphs are to get this working. how I can extract text from with some kind of marker for the paragraph sections? Or is there a way to insert characters where the excel cell has a paragraph mark (ie a return key has been pressed).

Combine 2 Cells With Line Breaks In Each Of Them And Keep Line Break Formatting?

Aug 5, 2014

I'm trying to combine 2 cells that both have text on multiple lines separated by line breaks. I want to keep the formatting so that when both cells are combined, line one from cell 1 and line 1 from cell 2 are on the same line in the new combined cell. This is easy to do when there is only 1 line in each cell but how do you do this for cells with multiple lines? Here is an example of what I am trying to do:


First Name:
Last Name:
123 Harold Street
First Name: John
Last Name: Smith
Address: 123 Harold Street

Automatic Page Break

Feb 3, 2010

I have a worksheet where the print area is 16 columns and ~90 rows. have it set to print on one page in page set-up, which generally scales to about 80%, and this has worked fine for years. A couple of months ago I was traveling for work, but got a call that the worksheet was printing each cell as a separate page. My co-worker messed around with it and it seemed to fix when she cleared and reset the print area, and has been working fine ever since.

Today it popped up again. It is setting automatic page breaks every few cells so page 1 is A1:A7, page 2 is A8:A11, etc...Both Print Preview and actually printing a page show me my few cells in the lower right hand corner of the page. Viewing the page break preview shows that they are all automatic page breaks, and if I try to move them I get the error that Microsoft Office Excel cannot move the page break because doing so would reduce the scale below the minimum 10%.

As I mentioned I have it set to "fit to" 1 page high and 1 page wide, which it right now is saying sets the scale to 10%. If I instead choose the scaling to be "adjust to" and set to 100% it only wants to take up 4 pages, but if I try to manually drag the break over afew columns it reverts back to wanting to print every few cells.
