How To Find Partial Text In A Cell

Jun 8, 2012

I have the following code to find text on a sheet. It works perfectly except that I want it to find partial text in a cell as well.

Thus, if the text in a cell is Goodwood, it will find it if I type in Goodwood as my search. I also want to find Goodwood if I only type in Good.

The Lookat:=xlPart does not seems to work.....

Dim rFound As Range
Dim iCount As Long
Dim Text As Range
Dim MyRange As Range
Sheets("All Codes").Visible = True

Excel 2007 :: Match Partial Text When Partial Text Is Not Exact

May 20, 2014

This is for Excel 2007,I have two sets of model numbers. One set is the full model numbers of the units we use, and the other is an abbreviated form used to lookup up certificate numbers. I need a way to match these up so I can use one set of search criteria to find out if there is a match. Here is an example of what I need to match with a partial text match:

H,AE35(6,9)36+TD and AE3563636D145C2501AP
H,RE36(6,9)36 and RE36936C145B2505AP

if I could do this with a formula that matches multiple items at the same time (ie; if A & B & C match=true) with the above model number being one of those items (certificate numbers are issued for sets, but the other model numbers are fine).If that's not possible, a one time VBA run to match all of the abbreviations at once would also work. If these items are matched up with a one time VBA, the VBA needs to account for their being more than one match for each abbreviation depending on the size of the unit.

So H,AE35(6,9)36+TD could be matched to:
AE3563636D145C2501AP
AE3563636D175C2501AP
AE3563636D210C2501AP

Find Cell With Partial Formula

Aug 27, 2012

I need to find the last row of a table I'm manipulating with VBA. The last row contains only the subtotal of a specific column. I am currently using the following code to find the last row. (NB:'j' is the the specific column, the formula in the last cell is shown in the Do While conditional, but the value 109 can change)

Code:
Do While Cells(i, j).Formula "=SUBTOTAL(109,[BID PRICE '#1])"
i = i + 1
Loop

However, this code will not work if the user adds a row to the table. I've tried using a partial string search, but the do while conditional is always true. I assume this is because the cell contents are a formula and not a string.

Can I change my conditional to search for just the "=SUBTOTAL" portion of the formula?

Remove Partial Text From Cell

Apr 25, 2012

I am copying text (contest results from another website) and posting into excel. As it is formatted on the original site, it posts the place, followed by a period, then the team name, then a dash, then the score.

Example ... 4. Smokers Purgatory - 662.2858

To place it in our database we need the period removed from the place, and the dash and score removed.

Example ... 4 Smokers Purgatory

Is this possible to automate in excel or is there a way to format so that excel seperates the place, team name and score? Or should I be looking for a different method?

Countif Of Partial Cell Text

Aug 10, 2006

I have a problem, in a table, the cell H5 has this formula. .=IF(E5=20, COUNTIF(G5,">=10y")+COUNTIF(G5,">=12y") +COUNTIF(G5,">=14y")+COUNTIF(G5,">=16y")+COUNTIF(G 5,">=18y")). every time that G5 has a value >= "10y"or "12y" until "18y", H5 should add 1 or 2 until 5. when I fill out C5, with an answer value in G5 of + 18y, H5 = 5, everything works fine. writing 02/08/1988 in C5 the result in H5 is 5, but when I change the value of C5 for 02/08/1999, H5 should be "0" but it continues with the value 5.

How To Return Cell Contents If It Contains Partial Text

Jan 2, 2014

Below is a small sample of Column A from a spreadsheet I'm working with. All cells in the column begin with a 6 digit number:

115383_BOSTON
115384_NEW_YORK
115385_PORTLAND
115402_LOS_ANGELES
115403_WACO
115010_SAINT_PAUL
115011_SAN_DIEGO
115130_WEST_NYACK
115021_CHAPEL_HILL

What formula would allow me to enter only a 6 digit number and return the entire cell contents, i.e, search for 115403 and get a return of 115403_WACO ? I have tried INDEX and MATCH, but I'm not getting the results I need.

Partial Text Lookup In Text String And Return

Mar 15, 2007

Cell H1 has a variable string of references for eg
"FI570783AQ3516346EQ3516346FXVB123456"

I want to return the reference beginiing with "FXVA" so it would ignore the rest and only return FXVB123456 - this should always be 10 characters.

Just to add another complication to the mix, there may be 2 "FXVA" references in the string and i want to get both (these can be in the same string so FXVB123456FXEL123456 - but this might not happen regularly.

How To Find Sum Out Of Partial List Of Numbers

Dec 19, 2012

How do you tell Excel to find a sum out of a partial list of numbers? Let's say, I have sent 10 invoices with different totals to a client, and he returns payment for only 5 of those invoices without any reference. I need to know which invoices are paid.

Is there a function that can do this?

Find And Copy Partial Contents Of Cells

Nov 19, 2007

I have a list of about 2 million phrases. The list was created by combining two lists in all possible combinations:

a list of about 800 street names
a list of about 1000 property names

example

church street flat
church street apartment
house church street
house king's road
etc

what I would like excel to do is the following:

look at each cell and determine which of the 800 street names it contains. write that streetname into adjacent cell.

this would then leave me with the original column, where each of the 2 million cells has been assigned one of 800 streetnames.

for example:

church street flat | church street
church street apartment | church street
house church street | church street
house king's road | king's road

that's all. I think that can't be too difficult, and probably it has already been discussed here in the forum. unfortunately I did not know for which keywords to search, that is why I couldn't find the posts.

I hope somebody can help me as I need to get this sorted for work as soon as possible. All semi-automatic ways I could think of to accomplish this would take me days that I don't have.

Search Variable Number Of Sheets To Find Partial Match On Name

How To Countif To Partial Text

Dec 18, 2013

Is there a way to do a COUNTIF on just partial text?

I know how to count how many cells in a column contain the text "cars" for example, but how would i write a formula that include cells with other text as well?

For example if 55 cells have "cars" as a value and 20 cells have "fast cars" as a value

I would want the formula to count 75.

Basically, it needs to count how many cells cars appears in, in a specific column, regardless of whether its alone in the cell or part of a sentence.

Importing A Partial Text File

Oct 30, 2008

I have VBA code that imports a text file using a fixed width separator within the code. The code is working just as I need it to work and placing the information/data in the columns that I have specified in the code.

The issue I have is I only want to import certain data that is contained within the text file. It is going to be a little hard to explain, so I have attached a sample of the text file with dummy data to better explain. The file is broken up into different segments. Each segment is identified by a “Base Number” in column A of the text file (once it has been converted into an Excel file).

For my example, I only want to import data for Base Number 38451. The information for this segment is easy enough to identify when the data starts and when the data ends. As in this example, the first occurrence of 38451 begins at row 257. Once the first instance of this number is identified, the first row of data that I require is always two rows after.

I think the coding should go something like this, but I just can’t figure out how to put it into my
If cell in column A = 38451 then
- start importing from 2 rows down
- continue to import until next row in column C is not = date

If row in column C = blank then
- search in column A until cell = 38451

If cell in column A = 38451 then
- start importing from 1 row down
- continue to import until next row in column C is not = date

Else
- stop import

I have included two files. (1) the text file with the data (2) the Excel file. There are two tabs in the Excel file “ReconSheet” (contains the data that is imported from the text file) and “Desired Result” (this is how I want the end product to look).

Assign Value If Partial Text Match?

Mar 28, 2013

I have a long list of categories in the column A (seen below). To this list i want to assign keys that will support with further calculations (in a column B).

An example of such a key would be in the case of the given example "ACTION SPORTS" and "FOOTBALL". The whole list of these "keys" hast 17 elements.

It is evident that i will need some kind of a partial match. The one i have found on the internet, limittin itself just on the first or last number of characters wont work.

Would it be possible to select my "key - list" (all 17 of them). Then excel would asign a key, whenver it would find a partial match, matching the key?

Appendix:
The Data list (Column A):
ACTION SPORTS FTW
ACTION SPORTS FTW
ACTION SPORTS FTW
ACTION SPORTS FTW
ACTION SPORTS FTW

Macro For Partial String In Text

Oct 21, 2008

I want to write an macro where it searches for text in a column, but the text may be a partial string. The text is in column B, with account numbers in column A, like this:

Column A Column B
1100 Jay
1101 Jack
1102 Jackson
1103 Jacksony
1104 Jefferson

For example, I want to search on Jack in column B. In the above example, I want it to find accounts 1101, 1102, and 1103, and to copy that information to another spreadsheet, say, sheet2.

If possible, I'd like it to copy the first account number and name, 1101 Jack, and if that's not what the user wants, they click next and they see 102 Jackson and so forth.

1AB29489284 CAT
1ABC0395935 Tiger
2HB29492492 Dog

The above CANNOT be done by VLOOKUP, since the class - Tiger, needs to be differentiated from CAT by the 4th letter. How can the above problem be solved???

Formula To Match Partial Text String?

=MATCH("*"&$A11&"*",'[Customer Master List - 05.30.xlsx]Export Worksheet'!$B$82:$B$1298,0)

However, it works with some text but won't work for some.
