Filtering And Converting A Text Table To A Single Column List?
Dec 16, 2013
From a table like the one here, how can I generate a list (without spaces) of all the names only? Perhaps filtering by "Mr","Miss","Dr" or something? The result I'm after would be a column on a new sheet that ran:
How (or if) you can put multiple filters into one column? For example, I have a main cell with sub cells (that need to be filtered), and those sub cells have sub cells (that need to be filtered). All withing a single column. I have an example of what my data looks like in the attached.
I need a macro that allows me to select a matrix of cells and converts it into a single column elsewhere, pasting the second column below the first and so on. Is it possible to select the matrix, hit a macro key and then paste it in my selected location?
I have a table in excel in which every line has as many values as the days of the month (e.g. 31 values first row, 28 the second..) and it goes from January 1948 to July 2014. So it ends up having around 800 rows.
I need to put all of those into a column, but it gets hard because the rows have different lengths. I have seen in this forum some solutions that apply well when the table is regular, but I'm stuck in trying to get a solution for when it's not. I have tried to record a macro using TRANSPOSE, but then I cannot change the cells into this formula in the editor in order to create a loop.
I am wanting to manage my inventory and need to convert spread sheets with tables specifying style, size color to lists with skus specifying style, size color. please see attached spread sheet with one sheet with table and second sheet with list.
My boss sends me emails with people's information, which I then reformat to put in invoices in word, save as PDF, record in excel, and send out with an email from Outlook. I would love to find an easier way. I'm wondering about putting the info in an excel table so that I can then use a mail merge to create an invoice with the address--unless it turns out to be more work than to format each one (I'm newish to Excel).
The info I get is listed in the following way:
First Name: Mia Last Name: Kant Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org Country: Afghanistan
I need to use some but not all of the info, but if I could get it to format into a table, I assume I could then pick and choose.
I have a list of a couple of thousand (and more) individual items. I want to filter the list and have a box for users to type in text (there are no numbers) and the results will be seen automatically reducing in number as more text is entered. (Similar to the Windows HELP files )
eg, typing A (or a) will show all entries beginning with A (without pressing "Enter" or similar typing AB will show only entries beinning with AB typing ABO will show .........I guess you will understand the idea.
I have tried various forms of Filter - Auto and advanced - but still cannot get the spreadsheet to do what I want. Unless I am not doing the Autofilter (or Advanced filter) correctly (I am still a relative beginner!) I still cannot find a way of simply adding letters to a cell or input box and the filtering takes place 'automatically' as the letters are added.
The above list represents 2 columns. The left column is 400 lines long. The right column is partially complete with 2 letter codes that represent the 6 letter codes on the right. I'm trying to convert the column in the XXYZXX format to a 2 letter column and each of those 2 letters corresponds to the 6 letter column on the left. How do I do this using any method or Vlookup? How does one convert a column of text to a corresponding column of text? I don't want to have to manually type in 2 letter codes that match up the left column. What do I do instead?
This is the text file: Video.txt. I import it using the following settings: "Delimited" as Original data type and "Comma" as Delimiters, with all the other settings left to default. Everything is imported into a single row. It is supposed to be a table, with Stk_No, Title, Certificate, up to In_Stk as column titles; then, all the rest should come below the column titles as rows (they seem to be separated by 5 commas). Am I missing a setting or there is a problem with the text file?
I have column A set up to display dates in the following format: 03/04/2009. While the "look" is fine for the values in the column, I cannot get it to stay in that format when it is moved to a text file. It simply converts the display back to 39876.
I would like a macro that 1) looks at all values in column A and 2) converts each cell in the column to text format but leaves the contents so they are dates 03/04/2009 (mm,dd,yyyy).
I have an excel file that contains data imported from a csv file. One of the columns contains text strings that I would like to convert to a different text string. The column that I want to convert has text data that is similar to the following format:
BL BLDO BLDO BLDO BLDO EL BLDO
Now, the data above should look like this:
+CONC CONC CONC CONC -CONC
The "+" should replace the "BL" in the first row. The "CONC" should replace the "BLDO" in all rows. The "-" should replace the "EL" in the the bottom row. Within these files that I work with, there are perhaps 60 or 70 unique text items that each have a corresponding text item that should replace it, and the files usually contain upwards of several hundred to one thousand rows of data. In other words, I have a list of 60 or 70 text strings that have a specific replacement text string...and I need to apply that conversion to several files each day.
I simply have an entire column with random things in it that I would like to add "www." to the beginning and ".com" to the end. I am very new to excel and I am sure there is an easier way than going through it manually and entering it.
refer to the attached workbook for reference. I am looking for a function in Sheet1, Column E that will search for the value of Sheet1, Column A within Sheet2, Column A. When a match is found, the function should look across Sheet2, Columns B - V for values of 1. When such values are found, the function should return the associated value from Sheet2, Row 2. There may be multiple values of 1, and as such, the function should separate values with a comma.
I am trying to get a VBA code to import multiple text files into an excel worksheet. The text files contain about 5,000 words each listed in a single column. I found this thread Import Multiple Text Files and the code listed there:
Sub test() Dim myDir As String, fn As String, ff As Integer, txt As String Dim delim As String, n As Long, b(), flg As Boolean, x, t As Integer myDir = "c: est" '<- change to actual folder path delim = vbTab '<- delimiter (assuming Tab delimited) fn = Dir(myDir & "*.txt") Do While fn <> "" Redim b(1 To Rows.Count, 1 To 1) ff = FreeFile Open myDir & "" & fn For Input As #ff Do While Not EOF(ff)..........................
I am trying to convert text to rows but in the same column Take the following example:
Column A: 1-2-3 ab-cde-fg 54-ty-12345 the waht i am looking is convert it to the following format: (the - is the delimiter) Column A
1 2 3 ab cde fg 54 ty 12345
i have found the following VBA code on those forums but i don't know how to edit it to suit my needs
Sub Txt_To_Rows() Dim arrText() As String Dim varItm As Variant Dim rngText As Range Dim rngCl As Range Dim i As Integer Dim j As Integer Dim x As Integer Set rngText = Range("A1:A" & Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row) j = 2...........................
If I have a table as noted below with the following assumptions:
- this table will likely grow - the 'Include' column data will change based on external criteria/formulas, so the 'Include' column will not be sorted. - Macros aren't an option as this sheet needs to be macro free.
A B C 1 Item Calories Include
How do I build a formula that I can place in a data validation drop down to only include 'Item's that have Yes indicated in the 'Include' column?
I've been researching this and found answers if the 'Include' column was sorted via offset, but I haven't found any to sift through when unsorted. I feel like there is a simple answer to this that I am missing. Here is the sheet --> ExampleSheet.xlsx
I need to split in Excel some thousands of data rows containing text and numbers information of different character length Data to be extracted ( parsed) is stored in a single column( the first one) and needed results look like this:
Data to be extracted Needed results Address Name,Surname Phone no. Green Street no 16 Smart town Schmit Anders +3900098787867
Data is composed by addresses, name of persons and phone numbers. Person's name is has two or three parts, address and phone numbers length is different ( 9 to 12 characters) I need to complete this difficult task (for me, obviously, ) in Excel using a combination of functions and/or multiple operations.
I have a list of email aliases for my company, approx 10,000 entries, mapping the alias to an email address. Two columns, one the alias firstname.surname, second column being the full email address. I have a second list, a subset of these aliases, approx 1200 of them, that are users of a particular web app. All i have in this list though, is the firstname.surname bit.
What I need to do is compare the lists, and where the aliases match I need to pull out the corresponding full email address from the long list, so I have 1200 aliases in the shorter list, with the full email address mapped to it. Is this possible in excel? i've tried all sorts of LOOKUP functions, and MATCH functions, but none seem to work. MATCH will give me the corresponding row number in the long list, but then it seems to offset itself every row it goes down, so the values are 1 out for every row. First row is good, second row -1, third row -3, fourth row -4 etc.
I don't want to have to manually go through 1200 entries and match them against a 10,000-entry list. Hopefully there's a quick way in excel to filter the long list down to the entries specified in the short list?
I am working on putting together a very large spreadsheet covering multiple data sets over multiple states/years. I am trying to convert the data that I have in one spreadsheet (that is arranged like the example below) and make it so that I can paste the data into another spreadsheet as one single row: i.e, 1,651 would follow in the column to the right in the same row as 6.4 and so on. Right now I am having to copy and paste row by row and it is going to take me years.
I recieve a spreadsheet each month with the following column of data:
9 Paddington House PO Box 73 Whiteleys of Bayswater 9-10 Grove Road 134/138 Drymen Road 44-46 The High Street 1 Midland Road 48 Donegall Place
As you can see, it consists of addresses, each line is a separate address. I need it to be converted so that the data is split into the following 5 fields:
Street number from street number letter from street number to street number letter to street
If there is no street number , then it should just enter the data into the street field. If there is a range such as 44-46, it should enter the 2 numbers into the from and to fields. Sometimes this is in the format 44/46. Also, sometimes there are letters, eg 44a-44b, in which case each section (ie 44, a, 44, b) needs to be in a spearate field.
New task for work today, which involves creating a spreadsheet for all existing members of an organization. I went to the organization's website and copied all of the names & info, then pasted into a blank spreadsheet. All of the entries were separated into their own rows, but all of the information is only in one column. Take a look at my sample:
(NOTE: does not contain actual names or info) Book1.xlsx
This sample only contains 5 entries, but my actual list contains about 200; if it had just been the 5, I would have been fine with manually separating the information, but for 200 entries I need something much faster. You'll notice in the sample that the company, person, address, phone number, email, and website (when there) are not separated by anything. I know that using Text-to-Columns, I would technically be able to achieve what I need using the Delimited option, but I can't imagine this working without separators. I thought perhaps there might be a way to separate them based off font changes or something? Or maybe some way that I can insert a semi-colon or some kind of separator between the necessary data?
While the font is Arial for the majority of the entries, in terms of font changes: company font size is 12 and color is navy blue; the person's name is size 18, bolded, and dark grey; the address & phone number are size 9 and the color is light gray; and finally, the email & website are also size 9, but navy blue in color. However, you'll notice that two of the five entries are formatted differently. This is because formerly, the entire cell & its text were a hyperlink to the email. I went ahead and removed these hyperlinks, simply using a "Remove Hyperlink" macro walk through I found on the web, but now these cells are uniformly set to Calibri and size 11, my default font setting.
