# Extracting Values In A Specific Text

Aug 18, 2009

This how it looks like, i used this code (see below) to get the amount if there is a word "ins" (martin's code)

IF(AND(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("ins",B47)),NOT(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("insp",B47)))),LOOKUP(99^99,--("0"&MID(B47,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},B47&"0123456789")),ROW(\$1:\$10010))))+0,""))

it works pretty great, but when things getting better, i've encounter this data: 12,300 ins 09-10 flood

so what i did, is to put another if function, like this: ..

## Extracting Specific Number From Text Containing Other Numbers

## Extracting Specific Information From Text String To Conform To Format To Upload Into QB

Mar 21, 2014

I have a string of information in an Excel download from PayPal that I need to upload into QB; but, the information needs to be in a different format. The string from the download is:

Property Address - 1116 South PaxonBorrower " Testa and Son Contractors,LLCLoan # - 1402088Acct Executive " Brandon Tully

But, I need it to be:

1402040;TPAPR;141 North Clinton Street, East Orange, NJ 07017;Leslie P Carter

Is there a formula that I can use to extract specific information from the original string into columns so I can then concatenate the columns into the information I need to upload? Or is there a better way to do this? The Property Address and Borrower Name are not static sizes so I can't use a formula that counts spaces.

## Extracting Values From An Text String (URL)

Oct 14, 2008

I was given a worksheet that contains a column (A) containing about 5,000 URLs (A1 to ~A5000). Each URL string includes three parameters that I want to capture the values.

For example =

[url]

The prameters are known but the values are random up to 256 characters.

I am trying to pull each of the values into a column for sortability and have been mildly successful using MID and FIND but no joy.

## Excel 2007 :: Extracting And Adding Values From Within Text Strings?

Jun 2, 2013

I am trying to extract values from a text string and add them up in Excel 2007. So far i have been successful in extracting the value out of the text string like this - =MID(I6,AD6,3) where AD6 holds the position number in the text string to start from. So it's working OK for one row but i need to do the same thing on multiple rows where the text string can be in different columns and I'd like it to automatically pick up the non-blank cell.

each row only has one column with text in it and the value i need to extract is always after "\$". this is a working spreadsheet so the text string could move from column to column over time and I'd like my formula to be able to detect which column to read from. I then need to add up all the values from each row.

## How Can I SUM Values Only When Specific Text In Another Cell In The Row Is Met?

Oct 24, 2008

I'm creating 10 'categories' for Column "C" that I plan on using drop-downs to select from. Column "H" has a value tied to "C". What I want to do, is have Excel SUM all of the values in Column "H" where the Category in "C" is a specific text value (e.g. say a category is "hardware", I want a cell with a formula that sums all of the values in "H" where "C" is "hardware".)

## Find Specific Text In Cell That Matches Range Then Display Specific Text?

Aug 5, 2013

I'm trying to find vehicle make and model in a cell containing a lot of text and then display that in the formula cell. For example if A1 is a paragraph that contains somewhere within it "Ford" & "Ranger". I want B1 to display "Ford" and C1 to display "Ranger". I have a list of vehicles makes (column A) and models (column B) on a seperate sheet.

## Extracting Data From A Table According To Specific Criteria

Oct 24, 2009

I'm using Excel 2007 and I'm looking for a way to extract certain records/rows from a table and to have that data copied to another area of the spreadsheet. I actually want to extract Invoice amounts according to a specific account number so that I eventually end up with all the invoices for a particular client on another tab so that they can be printed out as a kind of client statement.

I know there are ways to filter and then copy the records/rows to another tab but I want it to be automated as far as possible. What I really want to do is to "pull" the records into a new tab by using some kind of formula in the cells where I want the data rather than having to copy it there. I know how to sum data for this kind of thing but what I'm really struggling on here is being able to "Display all the records in a seperate area" first before I eventually add formulas to sum.

I don't mind the records being coppied if the process is automated but don't really want to get into macros as writing macros isn't my strong point.

I've tried using "VLOOKUP" but it will only return values for the first data item it finds (Account number in my case), whereas I really need it to continue to return values for the data item it finds if there are multiple instances of it!

## Extracting Specific Data From Large Spreadsheet

May 22, 2014

I have a large spreadsheet which contains multiple rows of rate data by employee. I have sorted by effective date with most recent date on the top to get the most recent rate of pay, however, is there a way or formula to be able to identify or extract the previous rate of pay after that? I have included a sample below. There are different #'s of rows of rate of pay based on how long someone has been in company, as well as different rates of pay and effective dates.

Employee #
Name
Rate of Pay
Eff Date

## Excel 2013 :: Copy Entire Row If Cell Contains Specific Text And Paste Values Into Another Worksheet

Jun 23, 2014

I am using the code below in Excel 2013.

Sub Test()

" PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _ :=False, Transpose:=False" and it gives me an error.

## Extracting Phone Numbers From Text String Variation In Preceding Text

Mar 29, 2013

I'm pulling phone numbers out of text strings. There is text string ("Office:") indicating that the number following is an office number (the number that I need). MID and FIND take care of this. There are sometimes two instances of office numbers in single text string, so adding a second column using the third argument of FIND lets me start another search past the first instance of an office number. We have a bunch of office numbers with the qualifier "(Text)" after the original "Office" but before the phone number. How do I catch these ones?

## Extracting Strings Of Text From Columns Of Data(text)

Apr 23, 2007

What I have is a column of data(text) which contains amongst all the text three strings of text in ever cell in the column which I require copying into three adjoining cells

The data I require is :-

(a) The persons name which is always after the word ‘Requester’ e.g. Requester Steve Robinson

(b) Their office location which is directly after the persons name and is in brackets e.g. (Newcastle User)

(c) The Approving persons name which is preceded by ‘Approved by’ e.g. Approved by Christine Hunting

See examples 1 & 2 below

Example 1

CR0/CRZ3651 Requestor Steve Robinson (Newcastle User) Tel: 01234 798157 Approved by Christine Hunting

Please install and configure 2 Ultra 2s (typhoon and lancaster) for use as ARTE workstations. These workstations require Solaris 2.5.1 plus the same patches as before

Example 2

CR0/CRZ3118 Requestor Doug Cunningham (Newport User) Tel: 0114 9881480 Approved by John Smithers

Please provide support to set up Cisco 2691 Router and PIX-506E Firewall to enable external connection of a remote terminal for project work.

As you will appreciate the text in the cells is of non standard lenght and the three pieces of information can be located virtually any where in the text

## Extracting Values From PDF

Sep 23, 2013

I know that there are programs out there that will convert a PDF into excel, but what I need to know is, is there a way for excel to access values (numbers) in a PDF and then use those values in a worksheet?

So, if I have a table in a PDF file - containing part numbers, descriptions and quantities ordered, I want to be able to extract the part numbers and QTY, and have them populate an excel table?

## Extracting Multiple Values

Oct 20, 2007

I have certain values relating to a single person spread out in various worksheets and I need to get that in one sheet.

## Extracting Values From A List?

Jun 15, 2009

Sample Data:

Col A: Col B:
CV01 01
CV01 01B
CV01 02
CV01 08
CV01 03
CV01 10
CV02 02
CV02 02B
CV02 03
CV02 10
CV02 01
CV02 09
CV03 06
CV03 06B
CV03 04B
CV03 05B
CV03 08
CV03 09

I need to generate/extract a "list" of all the values in Col B. that "belong" to each value in Col A. So, if my criteria is "CV02," I need the list to be 02,02B,03,10,01,09 (with each value in it's own cell)

I've tried the "VLOOKUP" function, but it only returns the last value for each criteria (example =VLOOKUP(CV01,A1:B18,2) returns "10")

I've searched these forums, but I'm not really sure what search criteria to use...

## Extracting Values From Ax -x In Cell

Sep 3, 2008

Does anyone know of a formula that will take an expression such as
"C1-5" in a cell, and produce five separate values in 5 cells:

c1
c2
c3
c4
c5

Even a starter would help, like how to extract values from "1-5"

Ultimately I'd like to use this for values that can have up to 3 digits following the letter (ie, C99-112.)

## Extracting The Highest Top 5 Values

extract the highest top 5 values from one column in a filtered table with hidden cells. How can I do this without using advance filter or a pivot table in excel 2003 that will show only the visible cell values and not the hidden cell values

## Extracting Unique Values ...

Mar 1, 2009

I have fixed amount of columns (6 in example: can be seen at sheet called "llist1", more in real example:"real example of list1") and rows (8 in example, 62 in “real example").
These 6 "analyzed" columns consist 3 type of info, basically there were 3 columns, which were "cut" to 6. In my example those types of info are called "name1"(columns A and F), "name2"(B and G) and "a or b"(C and H). Also there are rows, which should not be “analyzed”.

First, according to example sheet called "list1", i need to extract unique values from some "fixed" rows of columns A and F, more detailed: a2:a4 a6:a8 f2:f4 f6:f8. Probably, a named list should be created. Also it would be great, if these names will be extracted in alphabetical order. This is the first problem.

Then there goes second, the big one, problem: I need to extract unique values from !"rows of fixed rows"! of columns B and G "for" extracted unique values from columns A and F.

It is really easier to understand if you look at the analyzed information structure at the example sheet and what I want have in the end at "ideal" or "wanted" sheets.
By saying "rows of rows" I mean something like this: cell B2 contains this:

1st "row": abc-301
2nd "row": abc-302
3rd "row: abc-303

All this rows, thanks god, always contain 7 signs. I suppose a second named list is needed here, i e: b2:b4 b6:b8 g2:g4 g6:g8

After that I need to count A's or B's, according to rows, already done that myself using asterisks.

how can i attach an excel file? checkick the faq info, the spreadsheet will appear in a couple of minutes...

## Extracting Text From Text String

Mar 17, 2008

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.

## Extracting Known Text From A Text File

Mar 1, 2007

How do I open a text file, read all the lines from said text file & extract a value in the form of a string.

## Extracting Numeric Values From String

Jan 5, 2005

My colleague has a problem where he needs to Extract numbers from alphanumberic strings. Here is the formula he is using:

=MID(B7,MATCH(TRUE,ISNUMBER(1*MID(B7,ROW(\$1:\$297),1)),0),COUNT(1*MID(B7,ROW(\$1:\$297),1)))

It works if alphabetic and numbers are clustered together such as scs987
It works if alphabetic and numbers are not clustered together such as scs987dtg

Problem: It does not work when numbers are not clustered together such as scs987dtg1234

## Extracting Numbers From Text

Jun 13, 2009

I need to separate text information from a cell into 3 columns (W,9-8). The first letter I know how to extract. The problem is to extract the number in the middle (1 or 2 digit) between "," and "-" and also the last number. For the last number I could use right() function but the problem is that number could be 1 or 2 digits so I can not specify in advance so formula would have to extract the last number till "-". Anyone knows how to do this?

## Extracting Text From A Cell

Jun 25, 2009

Need formula to extract the text from a cell, with which a vlookup will be preformed on? For example if a cell contains: 116PH(604052) I would need to perform a vlookup on the PH.

The problem is that the "PH" in this case can vary where it's at in the string of numbers. Also, some cells may only have a three digit number with the two letters following. See my attached spreadsheet as an example. The current formula I have in column A on the attached spreadsheet performs the vlookup fine if there is only the three digit number followed by the two letters, but as I've outlined above, this isn't sufficient.
