Evaluate A Text String In A Cell
I want to be able to use a macro to read cells from a certain column so that it will evaluate a text string untill it hits a blank space, then copy the text that it found. I'd like it to work on Excel 2003 or later

Evaluate Part Of String To Match Two Conditions
I m trying to evaluate part of a string to determine if a number and if 6 char's in length. If Yes, return the 6 digit number, else 0
My formula below returns a #VALUE! error
It worked before I added the 6 char length condition, but sometimes return values of greater length that I do not need.
=IF(AND(ISNUMBER(VALUE(LEFT(C1809, FIND(" ",C1809)-1))),LEN(VALUE(LEFT(C1809,FIND(" ",C1809)-1)))=6),VALUE(LEFT(C1809,FIND(" ",C1809)-1)),0)
Evaluate Text As Formula
I have 2 sheets (book1.xls and book2.xls) book1 has over 20 sheets and has my primary data. Book2 is for a report. The report I want to only display one sheet at a time, by me typing in which sheet to access.
What I want to have:
A2 = Sheet Name
C2 = ="'C:Excelfiles[book1.xls]"&$A$2&"'!$B$1" C2 should have the value from B1 on 'Sheet Name' from the file book1.xls
however, all C2 will display is the text, I cannot get it to actually do the reference. (appears as 'C:Excelfiles[book1.xls]Sheet Name'!$B$1 )
Is there a function to say, evaluate data output from another cell?
(less complicated example)
A4=3 (formula to evaluate output of A3)
Check If Text String In Cell With Other Text Is In List
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 A Cell In A Text String
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?
Return A Value If Cell Contains Rather Than = A Text String
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.
Pull Out Text Between 2 Symbols In A String Within A Cell
I have a column of cells that contain a long string of characters....I need to pull out text from this string and put it in subsequent columns. The symbol I am concerned with is >> For example.
If this string is in the first cell in column A:
I would want a formula to return abcd in column b, defgh in column C, and ijkl in column d. >>this is a test>>make it work. in this example I would want "this is a test" returned in column B, and "make it work" ruturned in column C
Search Each Cell In Row For Text String
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...
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=RIGHT(RC,6)"
Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("I2", Cells(Rows.Count, "I")), Type:=xlFillDefault
Evaluate One Cell Against An Array
I have two sets of information, on one hand I have telephone numbers and in the other set I have prefixes and countries. My goal is to tell to which country each number belongs:
Numbers Prefix Country
4476324125 44 UK
3354326544 33 France
9713425432 971 UAE
9143253245 91 India
1343543253 1 USA
So I would need to add a column next to "Numbers" saying to which country each number belongs.
My list has a few thousand numbers and a couple of hundred prefixes.
I tried with some array formula, but cannot make it work.

Rearranging Order Of Text String Inside A Cell
rearragning text on excel. I believe Macro will be needed to solve this problem so if anyone can help me out, it will be a big help. Thank you.
I need to rearrange
"trace Silt, cm SAND, some- f Gravel" into
"cm SAND, some- f Gravel, trace Silt"
I need to rearrange
"some+ Silt, f SAND, trace- f Gravel" into
"f SAND, some+ Silt, trace- f Gravel"
There are many different cases for this problem. So if there is a way for the computer to recognize the Capitalized word and move it to the front and rest should be arange in order listed below.
each term is seprarated by commas.
f SAND, some+ Silt, trace- f Gravel
each color represent one complete sentence. and the order for them should be capitalized funciton first, then the follow the order provided above.
Delete Row If Cell Text Matches Known String
I have an excel file, and on some rows, the "B" column contains the text " Total:" (it does have a leading space). I would like to loop through the first 200 rows (maximum length of the file) and delete all the rows that contain " Total:" in column "B". I have tried:
For i = 1 To 200
range("B" & i).activate
If range("B" & i).value = " Total:" Then
When I step through that code, it just skips over the IF function as if B1 does not equal " Witness:"
Evaluate Multiple Functions In The 1 Cell
When using watch window to watch a formula that has multiple formula's in it, is there a way to see the result of 1 formula within the big formula?
E.g. say you have:
And you put a watch on that, but in watch window it shows the result of the whole formula, say if you want to watch only the SUMIF part?
Im using Excel 2003 by the way.
Insert Pic Into Comment For Every Cell That Has Text Containing String .jpg Or .png
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
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/"
On Error Resume Next
For Each c In rngList
With c.Offset(0, 1)...................
Evaluate UserForm Control Where Name Is In 1 Cell & Property In Another
In A1, other code inserts the name of a Form control (textBox, comboBox etc), and in B1 it inserts the name of a Property that is always valid for the A1 control. I want to concatenate these two items to produce a formula in C1 that evaluates the current value of the Property on the running form and continues to update with each recalc. It's ok if I have to force a recalc to get the latest values.
The code feeding the items to A1 and B1 and which will be harvesting the Property values from C1 is running in the same Form that holds the controls being referenced.
So if A1= "Label1" and B1 = "BackColor", then in C1 I'd like the same result as if in VBA I said X = Label1.backcolor. I think that what I need is the Evaluate function, but I've read Arron's article on it I just can't seem to make it work here.
Conditional Rank Based On Whether A Criteria Cell Includes A Specific Text String
I'm racking my brains as to how I can structure a formula to conditionally rank a value in an array against only those values in the array whose corresponding criteria cell includes a specific letter.
So for example I have a list of 12 values, say 126; 239; 0; 171; 162; 157; 130; 199; 122; 153; 0; 15.
Each of those values corresponds to a heading, say: CDE; DFE; FGE; DFE; ERD; DEA; BDF; DFB; CDE; CEF; CAB; FAB. As you will note some of the headings may or may not be the same and may or may not include the same letters in different orders.
How can I write a formula that ranks in ascending order a given value drawn from the above list (which will be in another cell but which in this case is, let's say, the first value: 126) only against those values whose heading includes a specific character, for example the character C (the character in question will vary and be defined in a specific cell).
As an added complication I need the ranking calculation to exclude any zero values. So in the above example what the formula needs to do is rank the value 126 against a sub-set of the whole array comprising only the values 126; 122; 153; 0.
The answer I need is 2 because, discounting the zero value, 126 is the second highest value.
Match Row That Contains Text Text String; List Associated Values From Pivot Table
refer to the attached workbook for reference. I am looking for a function in Sheet1, Column E that will search for the value of Sheet1, Column A within Sheet2, Column A. When a match is found, the function should look across Sheet2, Columns B - V for values of 1. When such values are found, the function should return the associated value from Sheet2, Row 2. There may be multiple values of 1, and as such, the function should separate values with a comma.
Extract Multiple Text Strings From A Long Text String
An original text string entry appearing in an Excel cell would be:
"N7C Neuroprotective J5Z Antiviral, other M2Z Antiarthritic, other J5A Antiviral, anti-HIV"
I need to extract N7C, J5Z, M2Z and J5A from this string and list these alphanumeric values in separate cells adjacent to the original text string. The challenge is that these alphanumeric references may appear in different positions within the original string with no fixed value e.g. a "," separating them. The alphanumeric references may also be 3 or 4 characters in length and there may be different numbers of alphanumeric references in the original string.
Another example would be (very different from the first):
"T2Z Recombinant, other K5B Radio-chemoprotective J3Z Antibacterial, other D3A Vulnerary A10C Symptomatic antidiabetic K6Z Anticancer, other R8A Antiasthma B6A Septic shock treatment I1Z Immunostimulant, other S1Z Ophthalmological R8B Antiallergic, non-asthma M1A1 Anti-inflammatory"
You can see that in this further example "A10C" & "M1A1" are 4 character alphanumeric strings wheras the others feature 3 characters.
Partial Text Lookup In Text String And Return
Cell H1 has a variable string of references for eg
I want to return the reference beginiing with "FXVA" so it would ignore the rest and only return FXVB123456 - this should always be 10 characters.
Just to add another complication to the mix, there may be 2 "FXVA" references in the string and i want to get both (these can be in the same string so FXVB123456FXEL123456 - but this might not happen regularly.
Evaluate Each Row And If The Last Value For That Row Is X, Then Highlight That Cell
I want to do it evaluate each row and if the last value for that row is X, then highlight that cell and the Server name for that row.
I have used conditional formatting but it seems that I cannot specify an option to look at the last cell in a row, evaluate that cell's value and then apply the formatting. I can only have conditional formatting highlight every cell in that row that matches the condition.
I only want the last cell, which represents the most current data, to be highlighted, as well as the category name, if the condition is met.
Extracting Text From Text String
I have a meeting name in column A that also includes a meeting #. The meeting number is always enclosed in parentheses and is at the end of the meeting name. There could also be information enclosed in parenthesis in name. I want to extract just the meeting # from the name. Also, the length of the meeting number could change. Here is an example of a 3 meeting names:
Example 1: March Madness (FY2008) Boston (8765) I would want just 8765 to be extracted
Example 2: Year End Planning Audit (11567) I would want just 11567 to be extracted
How can I extract just that the meeting number from these meeting names.
Extract Text From String
I need to be able extract a string from within a longer string. The information I want will always start 5 chracters in and be bordered by an underscore either side, but could be of any length. For example in the following string, I would want to extract WF602.
I've been looking at the RegExp functions but can envisage problems with this as later parts of the string (WR34) have the same form as the part I need.
I can get rid of the first 4 characters using
Sumproduct With Text String
I have trying to write a sumproduct formula, however, the total sum amount that i get is "0", which i think the formula is not picking up the text.
Y column is the text column to find the Evaporative cooler, the Q is another column where i have write the text out at AM5, N is a number field. The only bracket that is not working is the Y. Can you please let me know if I did anything wrong to it?
There are 3 types of Evaporative cooler, 1) Evaporative cooler - phoenix, 2) Evaporative cooler - Cal, 3) Evaporative cooler - Brisa. I wondered if I can use "*" to select all of the Evaporative cooler, instead of listing all three.
Parse Text String
I need to parse text strings and format them.
The string looks like this and runs down an unknown number of rows in one column, Col A.
I want to parse this so that the results will be text to columns
80.0 90.0 1234.56 80.0 1234.56 50 70.0
I want to thank BrettH for creating this VB. I want to manipulate it to read every row in Col A that has data, and then I want to parse the data as shown above. BrettH's VB works but I couldn't modify it to read all the rows that had data. I tried looping the rows using a counter loop and also a For Each loop, but could'nt get it to work.

Find Text In A String
I have the following string of text and want to take out certain parts of it. Assume the string is in cell A1.
In cell B1 I want "Company ABC DEF"
In cell C1 I want "10.50%"
In cell D1 I want "12/13/2014"
Company ABC DEF (USD) 10.50% 12/13/2014
how the MID formulas work (as a bonus)? I used =MID(A1,FIND(")",A1,1)+2,45) and it returns "10.50% 12/13/2014".
So I see that that formula says start from 1 character after ")", count 2 over, and then put in the next 45 characters. How do I do an in between amount, and how do I just have it come from the LEFT but stop when it finds " ("

The trouble is that each text string does not follow a consistent order, so I
cannot use text functions such as LEFT, MID or RIGHT to extract what i need.
