I'm trying to clean up a very large list of last names. Only one individual cell, but that cell includes numbers, decimal points, and spaces inbetween the numbers. All I want left in the cell is the last name. I have just under 100,000 to do! How would I go about this? Using Excel 2007.....
I want to remove the penta numbers from a 10 digit number. Doesnt matter wherever it comes. For eg: If the number is XXX0011111 in this I want to remove 11111 from this. If the number is XXX0000011 I want to remove 00000. Can anybody help with a macro or something?
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´).
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
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"
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......
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.
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.
How to format different numbers to the same format (as text). Mainly I need code that would format numbers like 25, 25.36 or 254.60 to numbers looking like this 000002500, 000002536, 000025460. They must be of nine digit length with the last two digits as decimals.
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.
I have a excel file, I need to remove the first two digits if they are certain numbers, such as 12. For example, if the number is 12987654, then I need remove 12, and it will be "987654" , but if it is not 12 in the first two digits, then keep it no change, for example if it is 345678, then keep it.
I barely work with Excel formulas, now I need connect the excel file with my Database table. I need to make the file matches the DB.
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?
Original What Im Looking For

Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;Actually I just figured it out. I did a text to columns with a + sign as the separator and it worked.
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.
I need to remove duplicate Part Numbers where other information in the cells will not match. In the following two examples, the only difference is that the COMP_ID: number is different, but for my purposes, the second example is a duplicate and needs to be removed. I have hundreds of rows of this type of information with various part numbers: ...
