## Remove Text And Sum 2 Numbers In Same Cell

Jun 10, 2013

I have a report that is auto generated in Excel format but I need to summarize the hours worked. The output in each cell in column "I" can be any of the following combinations.

IE: 1h, 15m or 1h 30m

I have tried the following formula with some success.

"=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("m",I32)), SUBSTITUTE(I32, "m", ""),IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("h",I32)), SUBSTITUTE(I32, "h","")*60, ""))

## Remove Non-alpha Characters From Alphanumerics With Option To Remove Numbers

Aug 8, 2009

I have found a very useful UDF for removing non-alpha characters from strings. (See below, Credit for posting to Stanley D Grom - Ozgrid post ´Removing Non-alpha Characters From Text´).

Option Explicit

Private Function RemoveCharacters(InString As String) As String
Dim intLoopCounter As Integer
Dim intStringLength As Integer
Dim intASCIIVal As Integer
intStringLength = Len(InString)
InString = LCase(InString)
For intLoopCounter = 1 To intStringLength
intASCIIVal = Asc(Mid(InString, intLoopCounter, 1))
If intASCIIVal >= 97 And intASCIIVal <= 122 Then
RemoveCharacters = RemoveCharacters + Mid(InString, intLoopCounter, 1)
End If
Next intLoopCounter
End Function

Two requests:

1. Could the UDF be modified such that any part of a string contained within brackets is also removed (e.g. "NLGA High Street (West-Enfield), EN6" becomes "nlgahighstreeten")?

2. Can an argument be added to the format of the UDF, such that numbers (0 to 9) are either included or excluded (e.g. RemoveCharacters(A1,1) where the argument ´1´ would include any numbers (0 to 9), so "NLGA2003 High Street (West-Enfield), EN6" becomes "nlga2003highstreeten6")? ´blank´or ´0´would exclude these numbers, i.e. would return "nlgahighstreeten"

## Format A Cell That Has Numbers And Text?

Oct 2, 2009

I am a biologist that works with transgenic animals and I am using Excel to keep records of my mice. I would like to have a column that includes the age as calculated by the DOB of my animal on any given day.
Furthermore I would like for it to be smart enough to tell me in weeks for younger mice and months for older mice. If i do this, obviously i will need a txt string that says "x mnths" or "Y wks" or whatever.

i have come up with an if/then string that works - but for some reason it will not allow me to format the number of decimal places if i include text. here is the function:

=IF(((TODAY()-B6)/7)>12,((TODAY()-B6)/30.417) &" mnths", ((TODAY()-B6)/7) &" wks")
the B6 cell is the DOB of that particular animal.

so what this SHOULD shoot out is something to the effect of "4 mnths" or "3 wks"
depending on the age of the animal. any animal older than 12 weeks will express in function of months and any younger will be in weeks. however what i end up seeing is something like this: 5.81911431107604 mnths I dont need any where near that many dec places...and obviously this doesn't fit in any reasonably sized cell......

## Cell Format: Only Numbers (no Date) With Any Amount Of Decimals

Sep 8, 2009

I need a cell to restrict the input:
-Only numbers are allowed.
-No date posible.
-Any amount of decimals (they must all be shown in the cell).

I tried using the data validation and using the IsNumber() to restrict any non numeral input. The problem with this approach is that if the user enters a date; it apprears as a date format (eg: "5.May"). I'm using an european excel, where the decimal separator is a comma instead of a point; so if a user accidentaly types "5.5" instead of "5,5"; the cell will show "5.May".

I also tried the cell format/number/number format. The problem in here is that I dont know how many decimal positions will the input number have; and I need them all to be shown.

## VBA - Generating Random Characters In Cell With Format Of Yymmdd / Randcharacters / Numbers

Mar 29, 2014

I would like to ask if there's a way to generate a random 4 characters in one cell and the specific random 4 characters that has been generated will be copied until the last cell of my preferred choice?

The format that I want is that:

yymmdd / random 4 characters that has been generated / 4 numbers that will increment sequentially

For example:
in A1: 140330QWER0001
in A2: 140330QWER0002
in A3: 140330QWER0003
.
.
.
.
.

But here's the catch, the file that I am using when closed then opened again will generate another random 4 characters with the same format. If i opened this file tomorrow:

for example the date for tomorrow is March 31, 2014, the file will do:

in A1: 140331TYUI0001
in A2: 140331TYUI0002
in A3: 140331TYUI0003
.
.
.
.
.

I tried to record it, the Rand() function when copied will generate another 4 characters.

## Format Different Numbers To The Same Format (as Text)

## Format All Numbers With The Accounting Format

Jan 10, 2007

When working in Excel I format all numbers with the accounting format. I often use the single and double underlining feature on the Font tab of the Format Cells dialog box. Sometimes when I use the double underline it only puts (and prints) one underline. I've worked with the formatting many times with little success. The only way I can get the double underline to show up in this situation is to change the vertical cell alignment to be centered and then increase the cell height. This causes me other formatting heartaches. It's like the double underline is there it just will not show.

## Remove Plus Signs From Numbers

Mar 26, 2008

I have a list of numbers in Column A that I always copy into another sheet. The problem I have is that some of these numbers end in "+" and I can't use them when it has that. I have to go through and one by one take out the plus. I was wondering if it was possible to copy only the numerical values to a new column?

Example

Original What Im Looking For

4 4
56 56
8+ 8
5 5
90 90
2 2
4+ 4
45 45
1 1
67 67

## Remove Numbers From Alphanumeric Cells

Sep 17, 2008

I have about 10000 cells of varying length in text and numbers but they all end with numbers on the ends of them. Using text to columns doesn't work because they're all different lengths and it cuts them off in the wrong place.

Is there a formula I can use that will return only the text from these cells and remove the numbers. It would definitely save me time from individually deleting the numbers at the end.
