Identifying Cells With Specific Format Pattern Within String

Oct 30, 2013

I have a list of 10k cells with Peoples names in various formats (Title,First name,initials,Surname etc and variations).

I am trying to identify the cells that have within the string the following : 'space','UpperCase Char','LowerCase Char','space' (eg Prof " Dc " Jones).

I need to then change the lowercase char to uppercase.

Extracting Specific Information From Text String To Conform To Format To Upload Into QB

Mar 21, 2014

I have a string of information in an Excel download from PayPal that I need to upload into QB; but, the information needs to be in a different format. The string from the download is:

Property Address - 1116 South PaxonBorrower " Testa and Son Contractors,LLCLoan # - 1402088Acct Executive " Brandon Tully

But, I need it to be:

1402040;TPAPR;141 North Clinton Street, East Orange, NJ 07017;Leslie P Carter

Is there a formula that I can use to extract specific information from the original string into columns so I can then concatenate the columns into the information I need to upload? Or is there a better way to do this? The Property Address and Borrower Name are not static sizes so I can't use a formula that counts spaces.

Find And Replace Certain Pattern Within String Using VBA?

Apr 12, 2013

I created a vba procedure for a particular job but within that procedure I need to perform another task. I've been trying to come up with a regular expression but to no avail. I'm looking to loop through a range of cells for any string where there isn't a space before and after a hyphen. When occurance is matched, then replace with spaces. One exception to the rule would be if data is contained within parentheses, then ignore. There could be zero occurances in string to many.

ie.
abc - def ==> ok, s/b skipped
abc - def (nnn-mmmm ooo) ==> ok, s/b skipped
abc-def (nnn-mmmm ooo) ==> abc - def (nnn-mmmm ooo)
abc- def (nnn-mmmm ooo) ==> abc - def (nnn-mmmm ooo)
abc -def (nnn-mmmm ooo) ==> abc - def (nnn-mmmm ooo)
abc-def ==> abc - def
abc- def ==> abc - def
abc -def ==> abc - def

VBA To Replace String That Matches Pattern

Nov 22, 2009

I have Userform1, Textbox1, Textbox2 and CommandButton1. Textbox1 is being manually inputted by users.

I would like that when I click Commandbutton1, that Textbox2 will be populated by whatever value was entered in Textbox1, except that the any string that matches any of the listed pattern below:

009???
017???
088???
078???
003???
663???

will be excluded. "?" here represent any 1 character.

So for example, if the user inputted "AA-90-088100ABC" in Textbox1, when CommandButton1 is clicked, Textbox2 should have the value:

"AA-90-ABC"

Find Text In String Based On Pattern

May 5, 2007

I am wanting to find within a cell the following pattern "ANNNN" - "A" meaning any alpha character A-Z and "N" meaning any numeric 0-9. The pattern ANNNN could be anywhere within the text. If the cell contains text with that pattern the text would be deposited in the adjacent cell. Lorem ipsum dolor sit A1234 amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Mauris tristique. Cum sociis

Excel VBA - Returning String Found In Regex Pattern

Jun 18, 2014

I have a string and a pattern. If a substring of the string is found in the pattern, the string is no longer valid. I would like to return a message stating which substring was found in the pattern.

String: K22+L09+P88+Q12+J56
Pattern: (N75|X02|A21|U67|L09|...)
Output Should Be: "J56 is an invalid code. Blah-Blah"

Code to test string against pattern:

Code:
Function Test_OPC(sCode, sPattern) As Boolean
Dim RegX As Object
Dim RegMC

Specific Pattern - Fill Won't Recognize It

Aug 1, 2014

I am comparing two years' data, one on top of the other (Rows 1 and 2). For each cell in each row, I am referencing a cell from a different tab. This needs to be done with about 290 data items, so 580 rows.

When I attempt to copy the two rows down, it doesn't go in the correct order (skips a cell reference number). It looks like this:

Excel Forum Q.xlsx

It would save me a lot of time considering each of the 580 rows has about 30 different column with each cell referencing various things.

Identifying Currency Format

Jun 20, 2006

When using the formula '= CELL("format",G3)' the result is ',2' for Euros, US and Canadian Dollars. As you can see in my spreadsheet this does not enable me to calculate sums (ie. Total Canadian Dollars) using the currency format. Is there something other than "format" that would get a more precise result that would differentiate between currencies?

Copy Entire Row If Cells In Row Contains Specific String

Apr 3, 2013

I'm trying to copy entire row from sheet "source" to sheet "output".

Condition: If cell or cells in range (E7: lastcoll, lastrow) value is "A" then copy entire row.

Find the excel template in attachment.

My problem is that my macro is copying particular row, as many times as many "A" finds.

I want to copy entire row just once doesn't matter how many cells with "A" are in particular row.

VB:
'function to find last column a change letter of column to number
Private Function ColLetter(LastCol)
ColLetter = Split(Cells(1, LastCol).Address, "$")(1)
End Function

Fill Handle Pattern (not Finding My Pattern)

Jan 31, 2007

Pre-requisite: I would consider myself to be very poor with excel, based on what I've read on this forum and found on my web-searches. I have a worksheet that has a list of data on the left going vertically, then a summary of this data going horizontally across the top. It is not arranged in such a way that transposing the data will do what I want. I am pulling the 5th word out of the title of each block of the vertical data and need to show this word on the horizontal section.

When I use this formula to pull the 5th word: =MID(MID(MID(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4),1,256), FIND("^",SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4)),256),2,FIND(" ",MID(MID(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4),1,256),FIND("^",SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","^",4)),256))-2)

I need to increase A2 to A30, then A58 (up by 28 every time) in every instance in that formula. The fill handle increases the values by 1, instead of 28 (even if I do 3 or 4 instances manually) How do I do this? I've run into this problem in other scenarios, and there HAS to be a way to get around it.

Assign Specific Number To Cells Based On Another Cell Value In String

Feb 27, 2013

So I have this list (I made it a little bit shorter).

So what you see is two different tasks (01 and 02) and three different conditions (A, B and C). In column B you see the result I would like to have. '/Searchtask_01.html' in A1 belongs to conditions A, because it is in session A. However, '/Searchtask_01.html' in A10 belongs to conditions B, because it is in session B.

How to get the results in B with a formula?

Identifying Cells In Col B That Also Appear In Col A

Jun 7, 2013

So I have a list of integers in col A that is a truncated list from col B. I want to select the units in col B that do not appear in col A. I tried this statement

=IF(A2=B2,A2,0)

Since both lists (A and B) are ordered from smallest to largest this only worked until a value that is not in ColA appears in ColB and then all the cells following = O.

I'm trying to identify the cells containing the prefix by evaluating each cell using activecell.offset and value to no avail. I've also tried to use the selection. find, however the first instance of the prefix is continually selected, and does not move on. I'm assuming that I must use the findnext feature, however I'm not having much success.

Identifying Cells By Content

Nov 24, 2003

I would like to write a macro to examine a range of cells, and over-write some of those cells with a zero.

I want to over write those cells with either a numerical constant, or a formula with only constants, e.g.

"12345" or "= 123+567-(2*5)"

I do NOT want to over write cells that contain links or any functions:

"=page3!a5" or "=sum(a1:b6"

Extract String Between Characters After Specific String

Dec 22, 2013

I have the following type of info in A1,A2,A3...

Code:
nameGaryage40cityPittsburgheight190
age30height150
ameLindacityMichigan
citySan Jose
ameHarryheight180age50

My goal is to get as close as possible to this,so it will be easier to sort and manage

Code:
nameGaryage40cityPittsburgheight190
nameLindaage30cityMichiganheight150
nameHarryage50citySan Joseheight180

I can't use the "" sign as delimiter to separate them into different columns because the age,city,name and height fields are in random positions on different cells.The good thing is person's name will always come after "name" string, age is alwals followed by "age" string, so it cannot be like nameheight40Michigan180

I think the following would be the easiest method(not for me tho).If on B1 I had a formula that said "find the string "name" and write anything after it until you reach the next "" character".On C1 field I could have a formula "find the string "age" and write anything after it until you reach the next "" character.On D1 I would have the same for "height" string,then on E1 for city string.

My question is somewhat similar to this one
Extract A String Between Two Characters

Formula which outputs the data between 3rd and 4th instances of the "_" character.Can we substitute "3rd and 4th" with a specific strings like "age" or "height" ?

Code:
=TRIM(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(MID(A1,FIND("|",SUBSTITUTE(A1,"_","|",3))+1,LEN(A1)),"_",REPT(" ",LEN(A1))),LEN(A1)))

Identifying Cells From The Results Of An Array Formula

Oct 12, 2006

I have a long list (>1000) of increasing temperatures in column A. I use an array formula, {=MAX(A3:A1029-A2:A1028)} to find the largest change between two successive values. What I need to do then is obtain the two values that give rise to that difference (for instance, they might be in A678 and A679). I can't figure out a formula for this.

I can manage it if I insert a "difference" column in B, and use:

=INDEX($A$2:$B$1029,MATCH(MAX($B$2:$B$1029),$B$2:$B$1029,0)-1,1)
=INDEX($A$2:$B$1029,MATCH(MAX($B$2:$B$1029),$B$2:$B$1029,0),1)

but I'd rather keep the number of columns to a minimum.

Format Cell To Always Insert Specific Thing When Specific Name Is Typed?

Apr 4, 2013

Is there a way to format cells to where - when you type in a certain person's first name, it will insert something entirely different?

This has seemed to have happened on a computer at work.

In Excel, when I type in "Martha" then tab, or otherwise leave that cell, Martha changes to "Cool"

If I type in anyone elses name - it stays that name. But if I type in "Martha" .. it changes to "Cool" with the bullet and the word Cool.

Find A Specific String In A Cell

I have absolutely no idea how to get starting on this one. I've got a long string in cell B1. At some point there is the word "oms:SomeString," (without the quotes). I need to know whether SomeString is somewhere in the active sheet or not (the workbook running the VBA-code is not the active sheet). I can't just compare the cell B1 because it contains multiple words. Any hints are very welcome.
