Extract Number From Multiple Occurrence Delimiter Of String Excel

Aug 14, 2014

I'm trying to extract all the numbers from the left of the delimiter ":" . They can occur once or more.

E.g. cell F2 contains BP2.2.1:40 BP2.2.1:50 BP2.2.1:60 BP2.2.1:70 BP2.4.1:80

and what i want as a result is : BP2.2.1 BP2.2.1 BP2.2.1 BP2.2.1 BP2.4.1.

I've tried =IFERROR(LEFT(F2,FIND(":",F2)-2), " ") but only displays 1 out of a possible 4 in the cell.

Split Column On 2nd Occurrence Of Delimiter

Feb 28, 2007

I have one column in a worksheet that I want to split into 2 columns. If there is one "(" in the cell, I want to split at that point, but if there are two "(" 's, I want to split at the second occurrence. I can use the Like operator to identify the cells, but is there a way to specify which delimiter in a sequence of identical delimiters to split at? Here are templates (not actual data) of the two type of cells:

Name1 (ABC) (Name2, Name3)
Name4 (Name5, Name6)

For the first, I want to split on the second "(", before Name2, and for the second, I want to split on the first "(", before Name5.

Extract 2nd Number From A String

Feb 15, 2013

I wanted to return the second number in a string such as this:"0 of 0 jobs ... View all jobs"

The following worked perfectly:=MID(U3,FIND("f", U3)+1,LEN(U3)-FIND("f", U3)-23)

Until this line came up:"1 of 1 job ... View all jobs"

Obviously the "jobs" changed to "job" because of there being only 1, so the "-23" no longer worked. I need this to get the second number out of the string and it can change because the data is being refreshed from a website so it could easily change from one line to another.

Extract The Last Number From A String?

Jun 20, 2014

It's for listing items to eBay. Ink Toners to be precise, the macro I have creates everything I need for a listing with a few msg prompts and importing data from another sheet. Saves me hours of work. Each cartridge has a Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow. The macro works fine for cartridge sets that go under one name. E.g: Brother TN325 Black, TN325 Cyan, TN325 Yellow... etc.

I've run into an issue with some cartridges which have different names: HP C530a Black, C531a Cyan, C532a Yellow...

I set the macro up to deal with different number, by removing the last character of the "tonername" string "C530", then replacing it with "C531".. etc.

What I haven't factored in is the ones with an A on the end. I need a way to tell it to ignore the a if there is one.

To make it clear, I will be inputting the text: C530a From this, I need to create 3 more strings: C531a, c532a and C533a

Here's the snippet of code I'm using to achieve what I'm already doing.

Selection.Replace What:=A, Replacement:=Left(y, Len(y) - 1) & "1"
Selection.Replace What:=b, Replacement:=Left(y, Len(y) - 1) & "2"
Selection.Replace What:=c, Replacement:=Left(y, Len(y) - 1) & "3"

Extract Each Word In Cell With Delimiter

May 23, 2008

I am trying to extract the first letter of each word in a string. The string can contain either a space or a "/" as a separator. e.g. blue green or blue/green. If there is no space or "/" in the string, I need to return the 1st 2 characters.

I'm using the following formula but it is returning #VALUE!

=IF(ISBLANK(T2),"",IF( FIND(CHAR(32),T2), LOWER(LEFT(T2,1)&MID(T2,FIND(CHAR(32),T2&" ")+1,1)),IF(FIND(CHAR(47),T2),LOWER(LEFT(T2,1)&MID(T2,FIND(CHAR(47),T2&" ")+1,1)),LEFT(T2,2))))

Extract Number From Text String?

Apr 28, 2014

Below is a sample of data I need to extract the 8 digit number:

In a spreadsheet, I had set up three columns where:

A: removed first three characters. WO_32092_56228491_115130-WP55 to 32092_56228491_115130-WP55
B: removed up to the _ . 32092_56228491_115130-WP55 to 56228491_115130-WP55
C: captured the first 8 characters left. 56228491_115130-WP55 to 56228491

I am pulling the data into Excel via an ODBC where there is thousands of rows of data. The three column process puts a tremendous strain on the processor.

Is there a formula that will extract the 8 character number without a three step process?

Extract Number From Alphanumeric String ..

Dec 16, 2008

I would like to parse a part number.


if there is a "-#-" in the string, that is the value I want. If the "-#-" is not present, I would like to take the first number. Currently, as written in your first example, I am getting the first number - excellent and thank you!

In the sku, the first digit reprepresents capacity. If a second number is present after the capacity portion of the sku (i.e. "-#-"), that means that they want to order it filled with less than capacity. For instance, a carton of eggs and they want 6 eggs instead of the max capacity of 12. (i.e. egg12-6-z2z). Numbers after the second octet (i.e. z2z) do not matter.

It would be a number only in the second octet. If there are characters with it, the equation should disregard it.

Here are the scenarios, and what the formula should accomplish

1) egg12 --> currently returns 12
2) egg12-6 --> would return 6
3) egg12-6-g2c --> would return 6
4) egg12-g2c --> would return 12

Extract 5 Digit Number From String

Jan 12, 2009

I need to extract a set of 5 numbers from a string of characters. The number set I need is always 5 digits long, always starts with a 1, and always begins after a period. But the number I need can occur in different parts of the string:

In each example below I would want to extract only the 10572 portion.


Additionally (if possible) if the cell is blank I don't want anything to show up, and if the string begins with a letter then I don't want anything to show up either.

VBA Function - Extract Number(s) In String

Dec 3, 2009

My knowledge of functions is pretty limited, or negligible to be honest. I require a function to extract numbers from each cell in a selected range.


cells contain the following data:

cell 1: xxxxxx 45,59
cell 2: x xxxxx xx 6,45,27
cell 3: x xxxx 28

were x represents text

I need to loop through each cell and extract each of the numbers and list them in a separate range. If applied to the above range of cells the function would show the below in the ouput range. Each number in its own cell.

Extract 7-digit Number From A Mixed String

Sep 26, 2009

I am trying to extract a 7-consecutive-digit number from a mixed string (letters and numbers). The only condition is that the number has to start with a "7" or "6" and be exactly 7 consecutive numbers long. My function only evaluates for one and one within the other but not both. It's faulted because it only looks for the occurrance of "6". rCell is the string range.

Function ExtractNumber(rCell As Range)

If Len(Mid(rCell, InStr(1, rCell, "6"))) > 6 Then
ExtractInvoice = Mid(rCell, InStr(1, rCell, "6"), 7)
ElseIf Len(Mid(rCell, InStr(1, rCell, "7"))) > 6 Then
ExtractInvoice = Mid(rCell, InStr(1, rCell, "7"), 7)
End If

End Function

Calculate Only Last Occurrence Or Occurrence Before Specified Number

Dec 24, 2013

I'm getting an export from a CDR. This export contains the date and times people log on and off from a queue. For logging in they dial 511, for logging out they dial 512. They get a voice prompt and type their password. I need to know how much time they daily spend in this queue

At first this looks pretty easy. I just make a sum of all the times they called to 511, then a sum of all time they called to 512 and finally I substract those values and I end up with the correct time spend in the queue.

The problem comes when they call multiple times to 512 without actually logging off. For example, they type the wrong password or simply hang up.

Result is this in the CDR

101 511 23/12 08:34
101 512 23/12 11:58
101 511 23/12 12:34
101 512 23/12 14:45
101 512 23/12 14:47
101 512 23/12 15:00

The actual time spend in the queue is 5 hours and 50 minutes. But Excel calculates this as 35 hours and 22 minutes, because it counts the 512 values no matter what.

How can I make sure that Excel only calculates the values of they are either the last value in the row OR if they are preceded by 511?

Split String At First Delimiter Only

Nov 11, 2008

I have a column with cells that look like: XYZ - JobABC - Area 1-A. I'd like to split the column into to and have it look like: XYZ <next column> Job ABC - Area 1-A
Normally I'd use the text to columns function and "-" as delimiter, however, there are other instances of "-" which I do not want separated. Note that the XYZ can vary in length and therefore fixed width will not work either. I have attached a small sample with the different variations that I could encounter.

Extract Number Of Variable Length From Text String

Jan 25, 2007

Imagine that I have this list of thousands of customers, who are listed in column B in the format "customer no+space+customer name".

Now I want to extract ONLY the customer no from the text string in column B and insert it as number value in column A on the same row.

Would have been easy with "Left" command, but as the customer numbers have variable length, I have a problem.

Edit Text String Using Delimiter?

Mar 14, 2009

I have tried experimenting with LEFT, RIGHT functions. I want to edit a text string using a delimiter. For example: "NOS|NOS". I have a column of 256 rows of such entries, a name; the pipe; a name. I need to be able to strip out one side or the other using that pipe as the delimiter, leaving only "NOS". With 256 rows of items with this format - the length of the text string will vary.

Extract Multiple Fixed Format Words From String?

Jun 23, 2014

I need to extract all instances of words that have format xnnnnnn, where x is an alpha character (letter of alphabet, to be precise) and nnnnnn are numbers. The words could something like u435586. The problem is I do not know how many instances of these words are in the string. The entire string is contained in a cell. A sample string could be something like:

SMNTv922970;#1283;#SMNT 433925;#1284;#SQRS 003417;#1285;#SQRSp047683;#1286;#SMNT 6132451;#1287;#SQRSw3145627;#1288

and the end result should be

v922970 t433925 t003417 p047683 t6132451 w3145627

The words are preceded by the character "" which might facilitate the search.

898427 data etc...

765432 Data data data etc etc maybe something different here
765449 data....
800000 data
898427 data

Notice how it just took the 1st occurrence and not all... I tried Advance filter but the data is all unique so it doesnt work it takes everything... I tried recording a macro but its crazy! and I did a pivot table took the first field... tried a vlookup and thought I could drag it but its getting too complicated...

Formula To Extract Variable Substring From String With Multiple Spaces?

Jul 19, 2012

I've found several posts about returning variable substrings that dealt with one or two spaces, but I have not been able to find anything that is for multiple spaces. The number of characters before the substring will remain constant.

For example:

Income from transmission agreement - 83 subs @ $0.44

In this case I need to extract: 83

Income from transmission agreement - 10,312 subs @ $0.50

Need: 10,312

Excel - UDF That Returns String Of Multiple String Objects / Possible To Color Font?

Sep 19, 2012

I have a udf that returns a string to the cell. The string is made up of multiple string "objects". What I am wondering is if I can set the font color of certain objects so that when the final string is built and returned, the font of those portions is set.

Ex. of simple idea (this is not actually my code, just a way to illustrate. I realize there is no point to this UDF):


Function StringReturn (Str1 As String, Str2 As String, Str3 As String) As String
StringReturn = Str1 & Str2 & Str3
End Function

Now what if I wanted Str1 and Str3 to be blue, and Str2 to be red for example. So that when the UDF calculates it would return: Str1Str2Str3

Extract Numbers From String (multiple Cells) And SUM Without Adding Additional Column

xxxxx1111 10

the last 4 caracters are numbers. I need to test these numbers and sum the corresponding values them in a single cell without adding new column(SUMIF like).

so in the above example I need to sum all ending at 1244 or 1519, therefore the sum showed in the single cell equals 225

to extract from a single cell: =VALUE(RIGHT(D8;4))

I tried to use an array formula but it seems to crash if a blank cell is in the array
