ive search the forums for this particular need and found somthing close but not what i need. i need to write a formula (not VBA) to extract a string of letters which can very in number out of a string of characters in a particular cell.
ex. cell A1= 00abcdefg00-000-00 cell A2 = abcdefg
i've tried different methods but can seem to come up with anything.
I have a spreadsheet containing 2 columns. Column B contains a list of item numbers which are made up of either all numeric values or alpha numeric values. Column A will contain the vendor code which must be extracted from the item number in Column B based on the following criteria:
a. If the item # in Column B begins with the letters ZZZ and the next four (4) characters immediately following the ZZZ letters are ALL numeric, then the vendor code = the next four characters immediately following the ZZZ.
b. If the item # in Column B begins with the letters ZZZ and the next three (3) characters immediately following the ZZZ letters are alpha numeric, then the vendor code = the next three characters immediately following the ZZZ.
c. If the item # in Column B begins with the letters AMER, then the vendor code = AMER.
d. If the first four (4) characters in the item # in column B are all numeric values then the vendor code = the first four numeric characters from the item #.
e. If the first three (3) characters in the item # in Column B are alpha-numeric values, then the vendor code = the first three alpha numeric characters from the item # in Column B.
I tried writing the following formula and receive a #VALUE! error message:
I can't use the "" sign as delimiter to separate them into different columns because the age,city,name and height fields are in random positions on different cells.The good thing is person's name will always come after "name" string, age is alwals followed by "age" string, so it cannot be like nameheight40Michigan180
I think the following would be the easiest method(not for me tho).If on B1 I had a formula that said "find the string "name" and write anything after it until you reach the next "" character".On C1 field I could have a formula "find the string "age" and write anything after it until you reach the next "" character.On D1 I would have the same for "height" string,then on E1 for city string.
My question is somewhat similar to this one Extract A String Between Two Characters
Formula which outputs the data between 3rd and 4th instances of the "_" character.Can we substitute "3rd and 4th" with a specific strings like "age" or "height" ?
I have a rather difficult task to accomplish. What I need is to be able to extract an alphanumeric value from the string. It is a serial number of the equipment and it is always nine alphanumeric characters long. The problem is it can be anywhere in string. Example: “2156545 36 month lease NWL023568 Nancy Clay”. The serial number I need to extract is NWL023568.
I recently had to convert a text file to an Excel file. The text file had to be converted as delimited data since the fixed width column could not convert correctly.
Now that I have the data converted, I have several rows of data strings.
The data I have looks similar to the examples below:
41 AAITQ08082901PER0041 ABC v1.0 NES ABC P111 - Blue 7706 6547 Yes No 140 5 AAITQ08082901PER0005 ABC v1.0 NEG ABC Z113 - Silver R 9222 2743 Yes No 156123 My question is, how do I extract the numbers that follow the word "No" at the end of each string?
Assuming the data starts in column A, is there a formula that I could type into column B that would allow me to return the value of those specific numbers?
I have not managed to find exactly what I am looking for so far..
I have cells with a mix of numbers and strings and I would like to extract certain numbers only.
I.E. 123a bcd8 acbd 1234e
I would like to only extract the first instance of numbers - so in example 1 - 123 and in example 2 - 1234. I have found various methods of extracting all numbers such as:
Function ExtractNums(r As String) As String 'Creates and returns a reference for a regular expression object With CreateObject("vbscript.regexp") 'Sets the pattern to be non-digits .Pattern = "D" 'We want to find all matching non-digits .Global = True 'Replace all non-digits with an empty string and return this value for the function ExtractNums = .Replace(r, "") End With End Function
I need to extract the text from a string that is always less the last three digits. For example if A1 is abcdefg I always have to take off "efg" and extract the rest of it to the left but the length of the string can vary. I can be dirty and record a macro where I find the length, subtract 3 and then using the LEFT worksheet function can get my result, but when I come to try to convert that to VBA. What is the VBA equivalent of LEFT worksheet function and how would I go about using LEN in conjuntion with subtracting 3 from it?
I have a few hundred rows of text in the fomat below: 1.23456 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. The “x’s” represent text which is unique to each row. what the formula I need to extract the number (1.23456) at the start of the string? To complicate things the number may be reported to any number of decimal places, so the formula needs to be able to extract the first block of digits at the start of each row and report it as a number that can be used in calculations.
There is also a single space after the end of the date.
Can someone please show me a formula to extract the date from each cell in the column? This is slightly complicated by the fact that the number of days (“D”) could consist of 1, 2, 3 or 4 characters, and the date could also be of variable length (e.g. 1/1/2008 vs 31/05/2008)
is it possilble to extract integers from a text string within a cell?
Eg. Cell A1 - "ABC 123" I want to extract the "123" from cell A1.
I have many text strings from which I need to extract the integers from. 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.
I am accessing a ratings system for horse racing and trying to extract the top-rated runners for each race using a database query. The problem is that every runner and rating is in one cell and separated by spaces. I have tried using text to columns but obviously can't use space as a delimiter as the horse names have spaces in them sometimes. The one cell basically contains the following string...
I've got a host of files within a host of directories, e.g:
c:ContractsJim BobJim Bob Site.xls c:ContractsJane JonesJane Jones Place.xls c:ContractsJeremy HillsHills House Lvl 1.xls
I'm working in VBA to try to extract the site name from the file string. Unfortunately there is no other reliable location where I can find an accurate name of the site, so it needs to be taken from the second subdirectory. So I'm using the following code to get the file location:
Sub FilePicker(fileToOpen As String) ChDrive "C:" ChDir "C:Contracts" fileToOpen = Application. GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="PPM Files (*.xls),_ *.xls", Title:="Select a PPM Scope File", MultiSelect:=False) End Sub
This returns a string along the lines of "c:ContractsJeremy HillsHills House Lvl 1.xls". From this string, I need to isolate the string "Jeremy Hills".
I have a woorkbook where I have a cell that has the following apperance:
The numbers can vary in length and as well as the text. What I am trying to do is to split this cell into to columns. Column 1 shows the account number, Column 2 should show the Text and the "-" sign should not be in any of the columns ie it should look something like this
Column1 Column2 12345678 ABCDEFG
I have found a useful function for the first part thanx to Mikerickson URL:Extract Numerical Data
Function midNumber(inputStr As String) As Double Dim i As Long For i = 1 To Len(inputStr) midNumber = CDbl(Val(Mid(inputStr, i))) If midNumber <> 0 Then Exit Function Next i End Function
But how do i seperate the text and how do Crete a macro that would loop through some 2000 rows and create a column A and B from Column A?
