I have a exel file which has been exported from Access to exel. There are many cells which shows the data as in Cell A1 with the Linefeed character in between data in a cell. Is there any way (may be using a macro) where I can remove the character and get it to display as B1 in the same cell(A1). The file is attached herewith.
I have entered text as I would like in the formula bar. However not all of the text is displayed in the cell. I have sized the cell so it should definitely dispaly all text. Word wrap is on But the text displayed in the cell is truncated
Also the spreadsheet was originally in 2007 format, I converted to 2003. I also tried copying all text from the formula bar, pasted to notepad, deleted from Excel, copied from Notepad, pasted back to the formula bar. Still not all text is displayed. In a helper cell I dropped in =len(xx) where xx is the reference. Returned 1357
I am trying to auto-populate text in cells in area A, based on data I enter into other cells in area B. I want the area A cells to be for display only, as all editing will be done in area B. The problem is: how do I do this such that the text I write does not get cut off if is longer than the column width? See the attached document for a clear example and description of what I am trying to do...
This is very similar to my previous post, which was solved. Now that I've extract the numbers, I need to extract the text for the specific work activities, for example 13Z or 9GGG. I'm assuming some variation on this formula:
This should be simple, but I am struggling with finding a way to use the search or find function to identify text characters. This is my situation, I have for example a cell that contains FW023 or D1234. I need to be able to count the number of characters that are text.
i would think I would be able to do it with the search or find function, but can't figure out how to get it to just count the number of text characters with in it.
I have some cells in a spreadsheet that contain unique numbers as the beginning of the cell (these numbers are always ten characters). In the rest of the cell there is text. the data would look something like this:-
SGGHNVT561 - 3yr Maintenance
I also have some cells which dont have the unique number at the begging, so the data would just look like:-
In another table I have a list of the unique numbers and the name that they correspond to, for example (this is the 2 columns)
SGGHNVT561 - Dave HUKIDO8946 - Stuart HJUTIFHE78 - Graham
I have ben trying to construct a formula that only searches the beginning of the cells to see if it containts one of the unique numbers and if it does to put the name of the person beside the cell. If the unique number is not there to return a value like 'Check'.
i tried vlookup but then i ran out of ideas :/
this is what i came up with so far:- =IF(P7="","",VLOOKUP(P7,'[Master List.xls]Sheet1'!$B$2:$C$5,2))
The only problem i can see that this is looking for the full cell to be within the master list - but its really just the first 10 characters I want it to check
Is there a way to specify if there are 46 characters in a cell, to apply text wrap, indent the second line, and resize the row height to 25.5?
For example, I always will have text on merged cells B7:C7. I'd like to have a macro that determines if the text goes over C7 (I figured that it would take 46 characters to do this), that the merged cells will be text wrapped, then row 7 will be resized to 25.5.
I know how to record a macro that will text wrap and resize the row height but am not sure how to do the "if" condition.
I wish to limit the number of text characters in a cell and have excel prevent the entry of additional characters after limit is reached. I have tried the Data Validation but it does not preven the entry of additional characters. I want to be able to show the error immediately when the limit is reached and no additional characters are permitted.
I am trying to select and move text from one column to another. I have roughly 1,000 cells in column A and I would like to tell Excel to select characters at certain positions and move them into the adjacent column.
I want it to look like this...
column A column B ABCDEFGHI BCI
Each cell in column A has a 9-letter sequence. I would like to move characters 2,3 and 9 into the adjacent column
I'm faced with receiving data for time, in a text format, as follows:
Example of possible cell contents...
20secs 40m20secs 2h40m20secs
I'm not interested in the secs value but need to isolate the h (hours) and m (mins) values to use in another formula as numbers. The time could be shown in either of the above formats with either; (a) just secs, (b) mins & secs or (c) hrs, mins & secs... and of course the hours or mins values could be 1 or 2 digits in length. How can I determine (using formula only, not vba) what the values for hours and/or mins are dependent upon what is present?
I'm am trying to restrict the length of data that can be entered into a cell based on a drop down in that row. I have achieved this, but what I need to be able to do is use data validation to restrict the cell length to one of two values - so for example the length can only be 6 OR 9 characters long.
I cant see how to do this. At present the best I can do is rectrict to between 6 and 9 - but this would allow 7 and 8 which is not allowed.
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).
I've scoured the internet for this answer and have not found a formula that works.
I have a list of domain names/URLs in column A of workbook 1:
jhjh.com hajfh.co.nz 22.214.171.124
I have a list of domain name extensions in workbook #2:
.com .co.nz .net
I want to determine if the cells in column A workbook one contain any of the strings in workbook 2 - note that I need to look at the string, not the entire cell in workbook one. If there is a match, true, if not, false for that cell within workbook one.
It's sort of a reverse array lookup with text. It seems that cross workbook and text is what causes the challenge.
I want to accept a string, well typically a name say "Manik" from one of the cells in Excel say "B2"; then split it as characters M a n i k and display it in five other cells like say from D2:D6. how can I do it? Also the name may change its not a fixed string.
I need a little help with the same employee time sheet that I am working on in Excel 2007. I have a dropdown box in Cell E1 that lets the employee select their name. Example, if the choices in the drop down are: Smith, John Jones, Paul Nelson, Bob and Hall, Bill. So the names are Last Name, First Name. Once the employee chooses their name, I would like Cell G1 to display "Hello (E1). Welcome to AA Company." (where E1 is the employee's name but First Name Last Name - so it is reverse order of the choices in the dropdown). If E1 is left blank, I would like Cell G1 to display "Hello. Welcome to AA Company."
How can I get rid of #VALUE! in a cell without messing up the formula of that cell or the cell it corresponds to??
When I enter a url in a cell it shows up underlined and with a different color (blue). I tried formatting as general or text to no avail. I deleted and reentered without http etc. but it still is underlined and blue. Anthing I type in that cell now is underlined and blue. If I click on the cell it launches my browser. I just want the text of the url in the cell.
I have a workbook that has a main sheet which provides stats from other sheets within the workbook. I have a hyperlink which goes to a certain place of sheet 2 and the displayed text shows the contents of a cell on sheet 2.
I know it's possible to have the hyperlink go to a certain cell on another workbook as opposed to worksheet, but I cant display the contents of a cell on another workbook as the text on the hyperlink.
I am making a list in excel and there are multiple cells where I want the user or customer to fill in their information. For example, In C2, the customer is supposed to enter the name in. How I can put text in this cell that will automatically disappear once they start editing the cell?
