# Extract Partial Contents Of A Cell

Dec 12, 2007

I need to extract partial contents of a cell.. right now in the cell it looks like

so I want my code to see the cell... dropp the "address: " and only retrieve 9999.

I know it's on google somewhere but I can't seem to describe it properly for the right results to come up.

## How To Return Cell Contents If It Contains Partial Text

Jan 2, 2014

Below is a small sample of Column A from a spreadsheet I'm working with. All cells in the column begin with a 6 digit number:

115383_BOSTON
115384_NEW_YORK
115385_PORTLAND
115402_LOS_ANGELES
115403_WACO
115010_SAINT_PAUL
115011_SAN_DIEGO
115130_WEST_NYACK
115021_CHAPEL_HILL

What formula would allow me to enter only a 6 digit number and return the entire cell contents, i.e, search for 115403 and get a return of 115403_WACO ? I have tried INDEX and MATCH, but I'm not getting the results I need.

## Extract Contents Of Cell If Greater Than Zero To A Comment

Dec 30, 2009

I am trying to extract contents of cell to a comment.

Column K is Overtime Hours
Column L is Regular Hours

I have managed to create the following macro that will copy the contents of a cell in Column K and put it as a comment in Column L. But I am needing the macro only to create a comment if the value of the cell in Column K is greater than 0

## Extract Information From A Cell And Reverse The Contents

Oct 20, 2008

All of the information is provided in one cell, which I can not change. If possible I would like to pull the names from the middle only (example: cell d11 only give me Adam Diaz and so on). Once I have pulled out the name, I would to reverse the name (example: Diaz Adam).

d12=AELIZO02 Alejos Elizondo (alejos.elizondo)
d13=BDELUN00 Bobby Deluna (bobby.deluna)
d14=BFOREM00 Bud Foreman (bud.foreman)
d15=BGREGG00 Billy Gregg (billy.gregg1)
d16=CGREEN06 Christopher Greenwood (christopher.greenwood)
d17=CGREEN08 Cheryl Green (cheryl.l.green)
d18=DDOWNS01 Dickie Downs (dickie.r.downs)
d19=DFLORE03 Daniel Flores (daniel.flores3)
d20=DMENDE01 Donald Mendez (donald.mendez)

## Find And Copy Partial Contents Of Cells

Nov 19, 2007

I have a list of about 2 million phrases. The list was created by combining two lists in all possible combinations:

a list of about 800 street names
a list of about 1000 property names

example

church street flat
church street apartment
house church street
etc

what I would like excel to do is the following:

look at each cell and determine which of the 800 street names it contains. write that streetname into adjacent cell.

this would then leave me with the original column, where each of the 2 million cells has been assigned one of 800 streetnames.

for example:

church street flat | church street
church street apartment | church street
house church street | church street

that's all. I think that can't be too difficult, and probably it has already been discussed here in the forum. unfortunately I did not know for which keywords to search, that is why I couldn't find the posts.

I hope somebody can help me as I need to get this sorted for work as soon as possible. All semi-automatic ways I could think of to accomplish this would take me days that I don't have.

## Testing Contents Of 2 Cells - Ignoring Partial Matches

Jul 6, 2012

I have two columns, some of the cells in these columns contain more than one value separated by a space. Example:

Col A Col B
1.99 1.69
39.95 6 119.94 29.99 6 149.94
135 250 135.00 250.00
11.6 11.60

What I am trying to achieve is to test that the values in column A match those in column B and have a TRUE/FALSE response in column C. At present i'm just using =a=b, however I want the formula to give me a TRUE response for the third and fourth lines in my example, as I want it to ignore the zero after the decimal place, at present it gives me FALSE.

So the results I want to see in col C for the above example are:
FALSE
FALSE
TRUE
TRUE

## Excel 2007 :: Extract File Contents To Workbook

Mar 17, 2014

I have large number of sql files in various folders in my windows7 laptop.

I have extracted the file names with full path in column A in an excel work book.

For each row, I now need to parse the file and extract the file contents and put it in column B, for the respective row.

I want the entire query content to be populated in the row without parts of query to spillover to other column (based on comma etc in the query)

I am using excel 2007.

## Return Contents Of 1 Cell Based On Contents Of Another Cell?

Mar 12, 2014

I thought this was a pretty simple formula but I am having difficulty creating it. I am attaching a little test spreadsheet. Sheet 1 is where the data will be entered. The Reimbursed column has a drop down choice of yes or no. The next 2 columns are the cost of registration and the cost of accommodations. On sheet 2 is where I would like the formulas. So in cell A4 I would like a formula that says if B3 on sheet 1 is Yes populate this cell with the contents of Cell C3 only, B4 of sheet 2 would then be B3 if A3 on sheet 3 is Yes and so on with the Not reinbursed if sheet 1 the Reimbursed column is no.

## Excel 2007 :: Match Partial Text When Partial Text Is Not Exact

May 20, 2014

This is for Excel 2007,I have two sets of model numbers. One set is the full model numbers of the units we use, and the other is an abbreviated form used to lookup up certificate numbers. I need a way to match these up so I can use one set of search criteria to find out if there is a match. Here is an example of what I need to match with a partial text match:

H,AE35(6,9)36+TD and AE3563636D145C2501AP
H,RE36(6,9)36 and RE36936C145B2505AP

if I could do this with a formula that matches multiple items at the same time (ie; if A & B & C match=true) with the above model number being one of those items (certificate numbers are issued for sets, but the other model numbers are fine).If that's not possible, a one time VBA run to match all of the abbreviations at once would also work. If these items are matched up with a one time VBA, the VBA needs to account for their being more than one match for each abbreviation depending on the size of the unit.

So H,AE35(6,9)36+TD could be matched to:
AE3563636D145C2501AP
AE3563636D175C2501AP
AE3563636D210C2501AP

## Cell Partial, VBA

Nov 22, 2006

I have a cell that contains a string which is always formatted the same. "Dated between Date1 and Date2" I would like to put Date2 into a variable; however, I don't know how to get just that part of the cell.

## Concatenate Partial URL With Cell Value

Mar 31, 2014

I am making a table in excel where I list video games and I would like to place a hyperlink in line with them to open a search page on eBay, I've made a URL-friendly cell (replacing the spaces with + signs, like they do on the URL.

Example table:

game title
game+title
Check

On the "Check" cell I would like a hyperlink that contains the value of the cell saying "game+title" (supposing that is cell B2), i.e:

[URL]....

How would I go about it?

## Retrieve Partial Cell Data

Jul 31, 2014

Is there a way I could achieve copying cell's content minus some characters?

For example in the cell A1 would be: "two apples"

I would put into the B1 cell something like =A1(-4charactersincludingspace) - the result in B1 should be "apples"

Is it understandable what I mean?

## Remove Partial Text From Cell

Apr 25, 2012

I am copying text (contest results from another website) and posting into excel. As it is formatted on the original site, it posts the place, followed by a period, then the team name, then a dash, then the score.

Example ... 4. Smokers Purgatory - 662.2858

To place it in our database we need the period removed from the place, and the dash and score removed.

Example ... 4 Smokers Purgatory

Is this possible to automate in excel or is there a way to format so that excel seperates the place, team name and score? Or should I be looking for a different method?

Jan 5, 2009

I have two cells on Sheet 1 - Cell A1 and Cell A2.

Cell A1 is the first cell that will receive either a number, or nothing. When it receives a number, the number will always contain five digits. (For example: '23456'.)

The contents of Cell A2 depend on the contents of Cell A1 - If Cell A1 contains a five digit number, then Cell A2 will display that same five-digit number with '-1' following it. (In our case: '23456-1'.) If Cell A1 contains no number, then Cell A2 will just be another ordinary cell allowing the user to enter whatever he/she desires.

The extension in Cell A2 should remain editable at all times - if the user wishes to change the '-1' to a '-2', for example, he/she should be able to do so without any error messages appearing. However, the user must not be able to change any of the first five digits in Cell A2 as long as Cell A1 contains data. A message should appear stating that changes to the first five digits should be performed in Cell A1 - which would then change Cell A2 accordingly.

Also, if the contents of Cell A1 are erased for any reason, Cell A2 should keep the five digit number, but lose whatever '-x' extension it contained.

Can this be done using Data Validation?

## How To Find Partial Text In A Cell

Jun 8, 2012

I have the following code to find text on a sheet. It works perfectly except that I want it to find partial text in a cell as well.

Thus, if the text in a cell is Goodwood, it will find it if I type in Goodwood as my search. I also want to find Goodwood if I only type in Good.

The Lookat:=xlPart does not seems to work.....

Dim rFound As Range
Dim iCount As Long
Dim Text As Range
Dim MyRange As Range
Sheets("All Codes").Visible = True

## Find Cell With Partial Formula

Aug 27, 2012

I need to find the last row of a table I'm manipulating with VBA. The last row contains only the subtotal of a specific column. I am currently using the following code to find the last row. (NB:'j' is the the specific column, the formula in the last cell is shown in the Do While conditional, but the value 109 can change)

Code:
Do While Cells(i, j).Formula "=SUBTOTAL(109,[BID PRICE '#1])"
i = i + 1
Loop

However, this code will not work if the user adds a row to the table. I've tried using a partial string search, but the do while conditional is always true. I assume this is because the cell contents are a formula and not a string.

Can I change my conditional to search for just the "=SUBTOTAL" portion of the formula?

## VBA Partial String - Put First 4 Characters Of One Cell Into Another

Jan 30, 2013

I haven't had the need to work with partial strings till now and having difficulty finding the right context in other threads. I need to put the first 4 characters of one cell into another cell. The line in the below code with the comment is the one I need. It's the only one where I need only part of what is in the cell.

It should be = the first four characters of cells(zRow, "A")

Code:
Dim LastRow As Long
Dim zRow As Long
Dim cRow as Long

LastRow = Sheets("Datasheet").Range("N65536").End(xlUp).Row
zRow = 1
cRow = 2

## Picking Partial Parts Of A Cell

Jul 29, 2006

I got some data like this

A1=CTAC US
A2=FCOB US
A3=TW US

The gap between each word and the word "US" is uneven. sometimes it's 3 spacebar apart, and sometimes 4.

I am trying the pick the part not including US. I tried =IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("US",A1)),A1,LEFT(A1,SEARCH("US",A1)-1)). It works but when I use match function to look up the word. It returns N.A. As the output is not just CTAC(4 characters), but 5 characters(including blank). The problem is the gap between between the word and "US" is different for each cell. so I cannot just minus the same character in the above formula (e.g. -2 if there is one blank cell). Anyone can tell me how to pick out the word and with only the number of characters in the word?(no blank)

## Countif Of Partial Cell Text

Aug 10, 2006

I have a problem, in a table, the cell H5 has this formula. .=IF(E5=20, COUNTIF(G5,">=10y")+COUNTIF(G5,">=12y") +COUNTIF(G5,">=14y")+COUNTIF(G5,">=16y")+COUNTIF(G 5,">=18y")). every time that G5 has a value >= "10y"or "12y" until "18y", H5 should add 1 or 2 until 5. when I fill out C5, with an answer value in G5 of + 18y, H5 = 5, everything works fine. writing 02/08/1988 in C5 the result in H5 is 5, but when I change the value of C5 for 02/08/1999, H5 should be "0" but it continues with the value 5.

## Cell Format For Partial Repeating Number

Sep 19, 2006

I have an excel sheet that we need to type in an account number it always starts with 8774100 then has 9 more numbers. If I leave it on number formating it always changes the last number to 0 so I format the cell as TEXT. Anyway is there a way to get the 8774100 to automatically go in and only have to type the last 9 numbers? I know I can copy paste but then I have to double click or make sure I enter the last 9 numbers at the end or use the top entry. The data entry people just want to hit enter and go from line to line fast. In the past I just divided the cell into 2 cells and made the 8774100 in column A and columb B was the ending 9 numbers. But they need to be in the same cell.

## Counting Cell With Partial Text Criteria

Feb 28, 2007

Greetings, I have a particular column containing data similar to:
X24A
X15B
G15A
X23S

I have sorted the data to have all the X marks together, and now I want to run a counter so i can select the data and delete. Following is a sample of the code that is NOT working:

'Delete X Piece Mark Rows

Range("L2").Select
counter = 0
ActiveCell.Select

Do While ActiveCell = "X" & "*" ' This is the line that crapping out
If ActiveCell = "X" & "*" Then counter = counter + 1
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
Loop

Range("A2").Select
Range("A2", "L" & counter + 1).Select

Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp
Range("A1").Select

## Copy Partial Text Within A Cell To A New Cell

Oct 10, 2008

I have a database that I need to extract information from. Column "D" has a string that runs from 25 to 50 characters long, and I need to pull specific information out and need it to be inserted into a new column for each row of my database. The data that I need to pull from column "D" is always located between the first occurance of "=" and the first occurance of "&"

## Using Cell Values As Partial Spreadsheet References In Formulas

Feb 21, 2014

I've attached a sample document of my data layout. On the Compare tab, I'd like to build a sumif formula that takes the data in column B and uses it to reference the other tabs without having to use a large nested IF statement. For example, on the Compare tab, in cell C2, the formula will know to look at the "JAN MONTH" tab because B2 says "JAN", then the rest of the sumif would be looking at the data in column A and matching it with the data in column A in the correct tab.

## Partial String Check In Cell Against Range For Return

Feb 15, 2010

I've posted this query before, not on this forum, but I don't think the replies I've had so far are going to do what I want. Initially I was looking for a formula, but the suggested pile of nested IFs won't work for the number of conditions. I saw a previous post on here for a VBA macro to search for a text value in a cell against the cell contents of a range and it seemed to do at least the first part of what I wanted. I attempted to manipulate it a little to test its applicability for my own nefarious purposes but for the life of me I can't get it working.

This is complicated by the fact that the actual data is commercially confidential, so I can't show you the actual file, but I can fake what I want with two simpler ones. I've attached them to this post. What I want is a fair bit more complex than the other post I found - I want to be able to compare a partial text string from a given cell in a range ('Check Value' in the attached TestBook2 ) against the strings in a range of cells ('Value 1' in TestBook1), and return the corresponding value from 'Test Value' to the corresponding adjacent cell to the tested 'Check Value', with an order of precedence, for example...

Testbook2 contains an entry in C5 of 'a, e, h, z, x, y'. Testbook1 shows that the return for a, b, c, or d is 'moo', for e, f, or g is 'steve' and for g through q is 'fred', all others being no returned value. Moo>steve>fred, so I want the corresponding 'moo, steve. fred or <blank>' cell to contain 'moo'. Conversely, C6 contains 't, u, z' and therefore shouldn't have a value in 'moo, steve, fred or <blank>'. C12 contains 'f, z, s, y, u' and C15 'i, x, z, s', and therefore should display 'steve' and 'fred' respectively.

## Copy Partial Strings From One Cell To Multiple Cells

Apr 5, 2007

I am trying to copy partial data from Column A into Columns B and C, then I want to delete Column A without affecting the results in Column B and C. Column A consists of a stock number in the format "1234-56-789-0000" (including the dashes) and is formatted as TEXT.

I'd like to paste the "1234" from Column A into Column B and the "56-789-0000" from Column A into Column C AND remove the dashes (-). I need to do this for the range (or number of rows) that is populated in Column A. This could be as many as 50,000+ rows of data. After this is done, I want to delete Column A. I tried using the LEFT and RIGHT formulas, but they are dependent on keeping Column A intact.

........... A .................. B .............. C ......
1234-56-789-0000 ..... 1234 ..... 567890000

and then eventually like this:

. A ............. B ......
1234 .... 567890000

On occasion, leading zeros in Column C have disappeared, and it's necessary it stay in a 9-digit format. There are 2 additional columns of data, but they shouldn't be affected by the above.

## How To Calculate Sales Based On Partial Cell Content (multiple Inputs)

Jan 15, 2010

I have made a dynamic calculator which will calculate the total sale based on 3 criteria in 3 different cells as follows:-

I would like to derive the sales qty in cell C5 if all the 3 conditions in the range B2:B4 is true.

In this case the sales qty for Style-Colour-MRP combination(9103-PINK-399) should be 6.

I am unable to figure out with the formula for the same....

## Linking Partial Data From One Cell If Data In Another Cell Meets Requirements

Jan 6, 2009

The merged Cell B6:G6 will receive a ten-digit number followed by a dash and then one or more numbers. (For example: 1234567890-123)

Cell B15 will then receive data shortly afterwards. I already have a validation macro for this cell which allows either 'I' or 'I I I'.

Upon exiting Cell B15, merged Cell B16:H16 needs a macro which will check Cell B15 and if it contains 'I', Cell B16:H16 will display the data from the ten-digit number entered in Cell B6:G6 minus the first five digits. (For example: 67890-123)

Now the data in Cell B16:H16 can only be somewhat editable hereafter. It can be erased or replaced with numbers in smaller or greater digit combinations than five before the dash (i.e. 67890-123 can be replaced with 123456-7), and digits can be added after the whole group (i.e. 67890-123 & SEE DWG) without any error messages. But if any five-digit number with a dash and some numbers exist in Cell B16:H16, they must correspond with the number in Cell B6:G6 minus the first five digits.

However, if Cell B15 ever receives a 'I I I' afterwards, all data in Cell B16:H16 must be erased. Cell B16:H16 can never contain data if Cell B15 contains 'I I I'.

Also, if the data in Cell B6:G6 changes later on, the corresponding digits in Cell B16:H16 must change as well, even if there are digits after the whole group.

So here is an example of what a good macro would do for me: ...

## Excel 2010 :: How To Filter / Sort Data Based On Partial Match Of Data In Cell

Apr 16, 2013

I am using Excel 2010. I am a novice user.

I have a lot of data to filter / sort. I want to initially to create a filter for a column of data - which has the format similar to hierarchical paths to files. The data is a mix of text/numbers. e.g.

pathA/path_X/path_Y/path_Z/lso0_rxs_reg_254__5_0/d
pathA/path_X/path_Y/path_Z/lso0_rxs_reg_253__5_0/d
pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_17_0/d
pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_0_0/d
pathA/path_X/path_Y/path_Z/lso0_rxs_reg_255__5_0/d

[Code] .........

Doing an alphabetical sort of this date would return the following order. As you can see while each strings in unique - there are many instances where they are simialr - if you ignore the unique numeric values at the end of the string.

pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_0_0/d
pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_17_0/d
pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_4_0/d
pathA/path_X/path_Y/path_Z/lso0_rxs_reg_230__6_0/d

[Code] ......

So what I want to do is to create a filter for the strings - but ignoring the numeric bits at the end i.e.

reg_[0-9]+_+[0-9]+/d

The strings are obviiously of varying length and the number of hierarchical paths is different, so I can't split string on "/".

Similarly folder paths names can contain "_" so can't split string on this either.

As I don't know how many "/" or "-" instances there will be in the string I don't believe I can use the find function. Also as the amount of number will be different i don't think I can use =right(a1,X) either.

I may be able to search for the pattern above - as this is probabay unique - so maybe it's something like the following pseudo code:

Function GetString(txt As String) As String
With CreateObject("VBScript.RegExp")
.Pattern = "reg_d+(_)+d+//d"
GetString = .execute(txt)(0)
End With
End Function

If I do require VBA code - how do I then use this for creating a column filter? Or will I have to extract the filtered data first from the column (and its associated row data) into another worksheet to use?

Once I have the filter in place I want to create tables using the filtered data - so for example each column value above has a lot of associated data values in each row e.g

26 pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_0_0/d
32 pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_17_0/d
8 pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_4_0/d

So my table would show the name "data_out_reg" and the range of values 8-32

## Copy Cell Contents Between Tabs Provided Cell References Match (VLOOKUP)

Apr 29, 2014

I have 2 inventory reports: what my store has and what my supplier has. I need to copy Tab1:K# to Tab2:T# provided that Tab1:A#'s contents match Tab2:A#'s contents. The A column represents the SKU of the item, but there is a difference in the amount of SKU's in each (my store sells ~6,000 items, supplier has ~10,000 items), so it's not as simple as sort by column A and copy pasting column K to column T.

For instance:
On Tab 1, A2's value is [1], K2's value is [9.38].
On Tab 2, A70's value is [1], K70's value is blank, but I need it to be [9.38], to match Tab 1's respective SKU.

I almost thought I had it figured out with VLOOKUP, but I cant seem to get it right... It doesn't reference the correct number.

Screenshots for reference

First tab, from the wholesaler: [URL]
Second tab, store's stock: [URL]
