i need help with 2 formulas to return text within a longer string.
the first result i need is a style #. this will always start at the 5th character, but the length is variable. it will always end right before the last "/" or "" in the string (there may or may not be a / or within the style number)
the 2nd result i need is a description of the style. this will always be after the last "/" or "" in the string and end before a ".", but there may not always be a period in the string.
Text string: ABC123123BASIC TEE.black
Style # result: 123123
Description result: BASIC TEE
Text string: DEF/4567LEAH/FLORAL TANK DRESS
Style # result: 4567LEAH
Description result: FLORAL TANK DRESS
Search the activecell for a text string (a), and then either paste in text string (b) at the end of the cell if (a) is found, or text string (c) if (a) is not found.
For example, if the activecell has "AA/" in it, I want the cell to become "AA/01" (pasting in "01" at the end), and if the cell has just "AA" in it, I want it to still become "AA/01" (pasting "/01" at the end). The macro will be linked to a commandbutton.
In a data report i have a column which contains a mix of text and may contain an 8 digit number which could start in 0.
in column A i could have "Hello how are you 01237232 I am fine"
I wish to extract the number into a seperate column, and would ordinarilly use a mid or left/ right function, however the text infront and behind the number will vary in length, which means i cannot do this.
The number will always be 8 digits, could start in 0 but will not always, and it may not be present in all the cells in this column.
I want to find a number within a text string, then count the letters in the same string, then add the number to the number of letters.
For example, if I have 9RR in a cell, I want to add 9 + 2 = 11.
The data will always be arranged with the number on the left side of the string.
So, if the number is a single digit, I know I can use left(A1) + len(A1) -1 to get my desired result. But, the trouble I am having is what if there is a double digit number like 10RR...I'm not quite sure how to create a formula (without using VBA) to give me a result of 12 for this cell.
What I'm trying to do, is to make a macro that will fill the value "21432 - Accessories" down until the next which is "21440 - Furniture", which then should be filled down until the next 5 digit value..
In my opinion the best way to approach it would be to search for a string longer than say 10 characters, then fill it down until the next string that's longer than 10 characters..
This is what I'd like it to look like after the macro has been run: | A 1 | 21432 - Accessories 2 | 21432 - Accessories 3 | 21432 - Accessories 4 | 21432 - Accessories 5 | 21432 - Accessories 6 | 21432 - Accessories 7 | 21432 - Accessories 8 | 21432 - Accessories 9 | 21440 - Furniture 10| 21440 - Furniture 11| 21440 - Furniture 12| 21440 - Furniture and so on...
I have a report that in column BX has a large string of text (html information). Within this text there is a phrase called "| Hear = Education Website |" The phrase Education Website can be a variety of things though (Up to 9 choices). What is a formula I could use to just pull out the text after "Hear =" but before |""?
Title should read: Finding the nth Occurrence of a character within a text string
I have a very long text string that is delimited by about 50 "/" to segment certain values within the text string. I want to be able to extract the text between the 33rd and 34th occurrence of "/". How to do this?
I'm trying to restructure a list of files at work into a format that makes some sort of sense and can be filtered into useful information.
Part of what I need to do, is match up all the drawing numbers that a certain project references. The numbers are formatted like "####A##" ex. 1234A01,1234A02,5678A01, etc. The cells that I need to extract drawing numbers from contain some description or other text (not just the drawing number) so I need to extract the drawing number from that cells value. (Ex. I need to get the drawing number 1234A01 from a cell whose value is "blah blah 1234A01 blah blah blah")
I was thinking I could just search the string for "####A##" but I'm not really sure how....I tried instr, but I think its searching for the literal value of "####A##" rather than treating the # characters as wildcards...
Code: if rngNames.Cells(intx, 2).Value Like ("*####A##*") then set intStart = instr(1,rngnames.Cells(intx,2).value,"####A##") '.... end if but intStart remains 0, so this method is not working...
I just reinstalled windows (XP) and Office 2003, SP3. When entering text in a column and if it was larger than the current column, it used to just display into the next column unless there was data in that column.
Now, it just displays a few letter from the end of the first word. How can I change this back as default?
I am submitting a book CSV file to my website. However, the website will not accept any cell that contains more than 80 characters. The error states the following. "WARNING: Title should be less than or equal to 80 chars; your Title was truncated to 80 chars" repeated 13 times.
I have a form in Excel that has comments fields. Each comments field is a merged cell consisting of four rows and four columns. My understanding is that Excel should be able to display 1024 characters. The input that's causing me trouble has 360 characters. At around 300 characters, the text box gets filled with ############################# instead of text.
If I size the font down significantly to where there would be absolutely no question that the text would fit, it is still #######. I may have to end up using text boxes, but they are a bit troublesome for the less Excel-savvy users of the form.
I have list of strings to be searched in column A2 to A150 (A1 has column title). The array that needs to be searched is in B2 to AG1000 (B1 to AG1 has column title). I want each string in column A to be searched in the full array. If match is found the corresponding column title (B1 or C1 and so.) and cell address needs to written to a new result columns in AY and AZ. it should work for duplicates as well i.e. the string can be in all the columns of array from B to AG. and all of them needs to be written to result column.
I'm trying to extract the number portion from the following string. I'm trying to use FIND to find the first digit between 1 and 2 so I used an "or" argument along with the code number, however it's not working here. What I really want to do is find any digit between 1 and 9 in the string, however I started with this formula for now. why this doesn't work and provide a better formula. I want to understand why this didn't work to understand the functions better. Text string is as follows "standard VAT rate: 20% (Jan 1984)". The formula I used in the following =MID(A253,FIND(OR(Char(49),CHAR(50)),A253),2) where A253 contains the string. Is it possible to use a logical argument within a find?
I am trying to find numbers from a string. I have for example words "EUR Fwd 9x12" and "Eur Fwd 11x15" And i want to write a function that reads the first number from a string if there is only one number before "x" or two numbers if there are 2 numbers. So I have tried to build following function:
Function NumbersInString(Word As String) As Integer Dim i As Integer Dim FirstNumberInString As Integer, SecondNumberInString As Integer For i = 1 To Len(Word) If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i, 1)) Then FirstNumberInString = Mid(Word, i, 1) If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i + 1, 1)) = False Then Exit Function Else SecondNumberInString = Mid(Word, i + 1, 1) End If End If
Next NumbersInString = FirstNumberInString & SecondNumberInString End Function
We are trying to make either a macro or a function that will look through the contents of a cell, find the first NUMBER and then paste the results to another column. Below is an example of what may be in cell A1:
Column A will have times that need to be referenced in a lookup. (Ex Sat 8:00am)
Row 1 will have basball field codes reference with a lookup. (Example Field 4
Cells B2:I11 have distinct codes or possibly nothing. (An example would be: Tier 1 A1-A3)
These codes will move around from time to time. They will always remain distinct within the grid, but could appear in any of the cells from B2:I11.
I have 2 columns I want to populate with values from the grid.
First is Fields. I want the first cell to populate with the baseball field found in row 1 of which the code Tier1 A1-A3 falls under.
For example if this season Tier1 A1-A3 is found in the column under Field 4, then I need to return Field 4 as a result.
Second is the time. I want the time to be populated based on what row the Tier1 A1-A3 code falls in.
For example if Tier1 A1-A3 is in the Sat 8:00am row, then I need that value returned.
In short, I need to search the grid and find a given value. I then need to use a lookup (or other tool) to return the first value in that row. And secondly via lookup return the first value in that column.
edit: added spreadsheet example. First sheet is grid in question, 2nd sheet is a typical schedule.
The first Team (Scared Hitless) is A1, the team they play first is Sands Duel Fuel (A3) They play at 11:00am on Field TR3.
You will see on the grid under TR3 and Sat 11:00 the code Tier 4 A1v3. This code is what I want to search and correlate into times on the schedule rather than doing the data entry by hand.
I have a cell that has approx 22000 characters. I'm trying to remove a specific character string from a cell by doing a find and replace with "". It works for characters in the first part of the cell but not for characters in the last part of the cell.
Example: I do a find/replace for the characters 21242 to "" in column A and I get the expected results. I do a find/replace on 69294 to "", again I get the expected results, but if I do a find/replace on 85203 to "", I get "Excel cannot find what I am searching for" (but its there!)
My cell size is within the max size of 32,767 characters so not sure why its not working.
I am trying to search for a string of numbers (column 2) in an array, and have "YES" be written on the same line in column 3 if the string is found in the names ANYWHERE in column 1. Please see the desired results on the picture in column 3.
I have tried many things, including SEARCH function which can only work with 1 cell not many, COUNTIF and more advanced functions, but I think have not succeeded because of my lack of knowledge in arrays.
I've attached an example of the data I am trying to solve this problem for. Basically I am looking for strings of 26 blanks or more in a row, but I want to determine the ending location of the last string of 26+ blanks. I've been able to determine the location of the maximum string of blanks, but that max group of blanks isn't always the last set over 26.
Any link to find the location of last string of blanks of 26 or more? The example I attached is a good example since there are two strings of 26+ blanks with the last one being shorter. I've also include the answer I'm looking at the end of the data in the example.
I have a sheet which contains a folder listing of files with the filename displayed as a hyperlink.
I would like to have a formula which works out a couple of values based on the file name which has been copied into a given cell as a hyper link.
In my sheet Column F contains the file names (as hyperlinks)
e.g. Anab AM1 2006-02-27.pdf or CD 01_02 2006_05_18(2).pdf
I'd like to create a formula for Column A which will give me the first 2 blocks of text which are seperated by a space (in the examples above it would be "Anab AM1" and "CD 01_02") Anything after the second space should be ommited (including the 2nd space itself)
I'd also like column B to find the date within the filename. Note this is not always the rightmost part of the filename (excluding the .pdf) I've worked out I can use the Find function to find the '2006' (I'll always have the same year in here as my folder listings are sorted by year) but it returns the character where 2006 is located e.g. for "Anab AM1 2006-02-27.pdf" it gives me 10.
My date formats are always in the form yyyy-(or_)mm-(or_)dd
I have a set of task descriptions that I am attempting to trend on. Some of these (Column B) have the customer's name added to the description; others do not. I need to be able to make a list of task names (ColumnA), removing the name from the text string.
The formula I am using is [=LEFT(B3,FIND("for",B3)-2)].
The problem I am having is when the description does not contain the "for" built into the formula, I get "VALUE" error. What adjustment can I make to the formula to pull over the Description if the "for" does not appear in the text string?
