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)
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.
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...
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'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?
I have lengthy title names such as "Giant_SOW_20141203 clean US-OPP134163" which i need to extract the ID number which is US-OPP134163. The ID number is the same every time starting with 'US-OPP' and then 6 numeral digits. I am looking for a formula that will extract this ID number from titles. see the file attached for examples of title names and what my end project should look like in column B.
Is there a way to extract a phone number out of a string of text. The phone number will always be expressed the same way (eight digits seperated by a space half way through) - 9999 9999. But the text before and after the number is random. Is there a macro to do this on a large scale? The method needs to be applied to hundreds of these strings, each on a new line.
An example of the string of text with the phone number underlined:
I have an excel stock price template, where I need the current price to calculate the mid point if the chart.
This is the text I get from the webquery
Underlying stock: SBIN 2699.00 as on Jul 04, 2014 15:30:36 IST
I need a formula to extract the stock price '2699.00' only from this text.
The problems are sometimes its may change to underlying "stock" to "index", SBIN to RELIANCE or TATASTEEL, and the price some times two digit say 16, some times 6 letters say 150.05, or 8 digits say 15160.00
Formula, the text in B1 and need the price at A100.
I am trying to transfer data from some appointment based software into a spreadsheet . the data comes out as one row For example ,the following is the contents of cell A1: 06/06/2014 09:00 AM - 09:30 AM Patient: John Smith
What I would like to do is extract one column with the date ,one column with the patient forename and one with the patient surname.
I have tried various combinations of =RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-FIND(".",A1)) etc etc but cannot extract the data I need
