Compare Multiple Text Cells To One String Of Text And Return Specified Value

May 12, 2012

I have a dataset of shifts and want to compare each shift that needs to be filled to a list of requests for time off (vacation, etc).

For one cell the code is: =IF(ISERROR(SEARCH(B1, A1), 0,1)

Where A1 is the column of requests in comma delimited forme (ie: "AB,CD,EF").

Where B1 is the column containing the person assigned to shift 1 (ie: "AB")

In this case, would return a "1" as no error was returned, as AB was found in the list. Here "1" would represent a schedule conflict.

Without creating many cells for each shift- there are 20 shifts- can I create an array or string together this type of "SEARCH" function?

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.

Return A Value If Cell Contains Rather Than = A Text String

Nov 16, 2004

I want a formula or function that will return a count value if a cell contains a string rather than returning a value if the cell equals a value. For example, =COUNTIF(A$1:A$19703,F1) returns a value to cells in column G if the value in column F equals any exactly matching value in A. I need a formula that works like the filter option "contains" so that if any cells in col A merely contain a string rather than exactly match or equal a string from column F I can get a count value returned.

Return Nth Instance Of Text String

Jul 30, 2008

I have the following formula that returns the most frequently occuring string in a range. what I would like to do is return the 2nd, 3rd 4th and 5th most common occourance as well. I am not sure if I can do this by adjusting this formula or whether that would be a completely diffent formula or worst case senario it is not possible at all.

=INDEX(B2:B1537,MATCH(MAX(COUNTIF(B2:B1537,B2:B1537)),COUNTIF(B2:B1537,B2:B1537),0))

obviously this is an array.

Search Formula (return A Statement If A Certain Month Is Contained In The Text Within Another Cell)

Dec 21, 2008

I am trying to write a formula that will return a statement if a certain month is contained in the text within another cell. Formula is =IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("Dec",Assumptions!B2)),"Ensure Journal is Non Reversing","")

Cell B2 contains a date in the format of Dec 08, so if this date contains Dec, then return "Ensure Journal is Non Reversing", if it doesn't then leave the cell blank.

At the moment it is putting in the first test for every month I select and not changing to blank.

Lookup Text Within String Return Category

Jan 29, 2010

I need to look within column A (which contains text strings), match label in column c (which contains text for label), and return result within column B (titled category label).

Essentially, I want to label my data based upon a specific element found within column A with a label list in column C.

I have attached an excel file that shows the current problem. Nested if(isnumber(search( statements can perform this, but I yield too many arguments error after three labels?

Isn't there a way to do this with Vlookup or Hlookup?

Formula To Pick Out Text In Middle Of String And Return

Jan 20, 2014

I am looking for a formula to remove the text 2.2 from the string Rav4 2.2 D-4d X or 1.33 out of Yaris 1.33 Vvt etc, I have tried using the formula

=IF(P2="","",VLOOKUP("*"&P2&"*",AM$1:AN$25,2,1))

But it just keeps returning #N/A. I have all the variables outlined in cells AM$1:AN$25 hence the reference. I currently have the formula

=IF(P2="","",VLOOKUP(P2&"*",AK$1:AL$25,2,1))

Which is working perfectly @ finding and returning the start of the string but just cannot get the one to find the middle characters.

Search For Text Within A String, Lookup And Then Return Item

Sep 30, 2009

I have a spreadsheet!

I have two sheets, one of which contains film names and the other contains our tag structure for our website (which is a list of tags, their keywords and the primary parent channel they live under).

What I am trying to do is search the film titles and if any of the words match either the tag name or keywords then return the relevant channel.

Example:

Sheet 1 - Films
How To Apply Bridal Makeup
How To Fight A Donkey
How To Write Excel Formulae

Sheet 2 - Tags
Channel / Tag / Keywords
Tech - Microsoft - windows vista xp word excel
Tech - Computers - internet pc
Tech - MP3 Players - iPod Zune

So, for film 3 on Sheet 1 it would recognise the word Excel in the keyword list and return the channel Tech.

Excel 2010 :: Return Result For Appearance Of Text String In Any Cell In Row?

Jan 30, 2014

I deal with a rather large excel database (the range is A1:AV168266) that contains customer information. Some of these various customers are affiliated with a group called "ascend" and I need to be able to filter all my list by every customer affilliated with Ascend. The trouble is that the word "ascend" can appear in 8 different columns and usually when it appears in one column it doesn't appear in the others and their can also be more text in the cell beyond the word "ascend". I want to create a formula that will simply look for the word "ascend" in any cell of a row and return a result I can filter by. I will be putting the formula in column AW and put it in all 170,000 rows of that column, that way I can just filter by a single column.

I've played around with combining COUNTIF with SEARCH and MATCH with SEARCH but nothing seems to work.

Search For Multiple Text Strings In A Cell - Return One Of Multiple Corresponding But Different String

Mar 11, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with 1,000 rows of data.

Each Cell in Column A has a different long text string.

I need to see which (if any) of 10 specific small text strings exist within each long text string. Depending on which small text string is found I want to return a 3 digit code. If no small text string is found I want to return "Not Found"

E.g.:
- Cell A2 contains "randomtext,randomtext,APPLE,randomntext"
- I want to see if Cell A2 contains any of the words APPLE, ORANGE, CARROT.
- I want to return "APP", "ORG", "CAR" or "Not Found"

Q: What is the most elegant way to accomplish this within a single formula that I could paste into each cell in Column B?

IF Statement, MAX Statement, And Return A Value

Apr 25, 2007

Each row represents a call. If a call in column A equals "CW" and it has the highest duration (H:MM:SS) value in column B, then provide me the date (MM/DD/YYYY) for that call that is stated in column C.

i.e.
Column A --- Column B ---- Column C
AB ------------ 0:02:22 ----- 04/14/2007
CW ----------- 0:03:13 ----- 04/16/2007
CW ----------- 0:01:42 ----- 04/13/2007

Thus, the value that should be returned is "04/16/2007".

Condition Statement Based On 2nd To Last Character Of String?

Apr 10, 2012

I am trying to pull certain members loads from our global design force spreadsheet and because of the naming convention we used for our structural members the 2nd to last character is unique to what I am looking for. I am trying to get a simple condition statement that will display the load only if the 2nd to last character of the name of the element is satisfied.

For Example, if "T" is what I am looking for then :

EDT4 will be true and give me the value accordingly
D10T1 Will also be true and return me the value
D10B2 Will not be true

I know how to use the Mid() and right() function, but I need to check the 2nd from the right.

Insert New Row With String Based On Conditional Statement

Sep 6, 2008

I've been working on this project to propagate certain products through multiple categories. I chose to use excel to assign multiple categories to each product. On sheet1 I have setup products (column a) and qualifiers in the following columns (color, model, etc). What I would like to achieve is for the user to select yes or no for each category column and and if yes then have the corresponding category breadcrumb string (from sheet2) inserted into one specific column in sheet3. As the user continues to select multiple "yes" from the category columns for that single product, those additional category breadcrumbs get inserted at the end of the list in sheet3.

Example: I am measuring performance of individuals. If they deliver below 50% I can return the value "Needs Improvement". If they deliver Over 60%, I need to show "Excellent" and finally if they deliver between 50% & 60% I need to return the value "Good".

I am not sure how to show 3 values.

If / Or Statement To Return Header

Feb 15, 2012

I am working with data that has numeric values in columns S, T and U. In column M I want to return the header of the column that has the largest value (S,T or U).

Here is the formula I am trying to use:

=IF(OR(S2>T2,S2>U2),$S$1,IF(OR(T2>S2,T2>U2),$T$1,IF(OR(U2>S2,U2>T2),$U$1)))

The problem is that it only sometimes works properly. I have found instances where the value in column T is greater than S and yet column S's header is still returned. What am I doing wrong?

Return A Value In A Table Using An IF Statement

Dec 10, 2008

I am attempting to return a value in a table using an IF statement, but without referring to other values in the table.

My first column contains price break quantities;
5
10
20
50
70
100

The top row contains selling quantities;
1410192541517699105

The IF statement should return a "Y" in the cell if the value in the top row is greater than the value in the first column, but only for the relevant price break, i.e. the column with 51 in the first row should only have a "Y" in the row with 50. This would be much easier if I could work out how to post the workbook!

The formula cannot refer to other row values (otherwise it would be easy), and cannot use VB.

So far, I have come up with;

=IF(AND($C6
