## Subtract Words From MS WORD

Dec 10, 2009

Working with external documents such as MS word is not my specialty and I have a feeling that what I need has been done before.

1) Takes a word file (open)
2) Split all words and put these in an array

I think a space character can be used as a delimiter, but all characters like ;,:" etc need to be trimmed so only "real words" remain.

## Extracting Word Coming After Number

May 14, 2014

I have a column with codes coming after a # symbol and want to extract just the code from the cell. The code could be 2 or 4 characters in length. Some examples:

#AA abcdef

From this I would want the formula to return #AA.

#ABCD qwerty

From this, I would want the formula to return #ABCD.

The #Code should but may not always be the first word in the cell, so it needs to find the # symbol and then take the next x characters until a space is found. Note that the reason code may be the only text in the field, so a space may not be there at all. For instance,

#RR

Should just return the #RR.

Edit: This actually has become more complex now. The cell could be

#AA{text}

And for that, I would just want the #AA.

The formula would need to begin at the # and return just the next x capital letters.

## Find Words Ending In A Certain Word - Macro

Jun 5, 2007

I have a sheet called "Words Ending In"

In ColA From A 3 downwards I have a large list of keyword phrases.

I am looking for a macro where I click on a assigned macro button and a pop up box appears saying
" Find words Ending With"
In the space provided I insert a word.

So, for example I insert the word "rent".

The macro then looks at all the data in ColA (From A 3 downwards) and searches for all keyword phrases ending with the word "rent".

If it could return All Phrases in ColC (From C3 downwards).

If it can't find any, then if a pop up box can appear saying something like "No Data Found"

That's it really.
If it could have a pop up box at the end saying
"Total Phrases Scanned: 1234"
" Total Phrases Found Ending With "In"
"Time Elapsed (sec.): 12.12353

## Extracting Numbers With The Same Word In Diferrent Position

Aug 16, 2009

my new payoff worksheet and then this small bug appears and my excitement like "poof"(gone)!.

with this code --> =if(search("ins",i27,),LOOKUP(99^99,--("0"&MID(I27,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},I27&"0123456789")),ROW(\$1:\$10000))))+0

i can get the value if the word contains "ins" like this --> "Ins 723.00" return 723.00 which is correct, and then i've encountered a word which is like"723.00 Ins", and martin gave me the code to get from both sides which is this one --> =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Ins",A1)),LOOKUP(99^99,--("0"&MID(A1,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"0123456789")),ROW(\$1:\$10000))))+0,"") . Work perfectly. and my big problem is that the word Ins 723.00 means Insurance and the 723.00 means Inspection, so it means they're different. and it means I cant use martin's code with this.

So is there any way i can get only the value if the word Ins is in the right side of the amount and also the code if the value is in the left side of the amount. I need two formula for this.

## How To Split Texts Into Words (collecting Word And Compounds)

Jan 10, 2008

i have wordlists which i would like to enhance through texts. For that purpose i need a macro which reads a text and splitts it into words and put the words into three columns. Lets assume the column where the words are supposed to be put is columns A,C and E. The column A should contain single words containing no spaces from Text, column C should contain compound words which have one space between them and in column E those compounds which have two spaces. Now i will put my existing wordlist in column G before i start splitting texts. The macro should put only those words from text into column A,C and E which dont already exist in columns A,B,C,D,E,F and G. In Column B i will place the corrected or checked words from column A. In column D i will type the corrections and checked versions of those compunds existing in column C. And the column F will contain the compound words which are corrected and checked from Column E.

Column A--> single words splitted from text through macro (containing no spaces)
Column B--> corrected and checked versions of words from column A through user
Column C--> compound words containing one space splitted from text through macro (for example:"etwas möchten" or "do something")
Column D-->corrected version of C through user
Column E-->compound words containing two space splitted from text through macro (for example:"sich uerberzeugen lassen" or "down in dumps")
Column F-->corrected E
Column G--> existing dictionary wordlist through user

Signes like ".", ":",";", "/" or quotation signe itself should be seen as seperator. And the words or compounds splitted from the text should not contain these signs.

The text will be put in another sheet in the same excel file. Lets call that sheet "text". The macro should search for words through whole sheet ignoring empty cells or columns.

None of the columns should be filtered or ordered. The columns shound not be deleted as well. That way the user wont have to correct the same word each time cus the corrected as well as the original words will be there.

## Replace Like Words In Column To Make Word Cloud?

Jun 21, 2013

how to accomplish more work quickly is proving difficult. I am making a word cloud of survey responses for my boss and he doesn't like to see similar words in the cloud (like Ease and Easy or even Fast and Quick). I have several hundred of these responses that are open ended answers that say one or many of these terms. Any way I can separate all the words and have them in one neat column? If I can get to that point, replacing those words will be simple enough.

## Looking To Find 1 Of 2 Words In A Cell In Column B And Return Word Found In The Same

May 27, 2014

Looking to find 1 of 2 words in a cell in column B and return the word found in the same row in column E. This seemed easy but I am not having any luck.

the cells in column B have several words in them but I am looking for 2 specific words "PLAT" and "ORIG". If the word is not in the cell, it should show a blank cell in column E in the same row, otherwise one of the 2 words should be in that row in column E. A VBA loop would be ideal but a formula that can do it might work as well.
