Padding Cell With Spaces

May 28, 2009

I know how to pad cells with zeros for a numeric field. I can't figure out how to custom format a cell to pad a text field with spaces.

If I want description to have 10 characters, if they enter BLUE I want it to be BLUE then 5 spaces to make a total of 10) if they enter RED I want it to be RED with 7 spaces to make a total of 10.

With a number, I can just enter 00000 and if I enter 4, it will be 00004 Can you do this type of thing with a text? I can figure out a formula to get what I need, but I want a way to do it directly into the cell when the user types it in.

Add Spaces To A Cell

Nov 6, 2008

I have columns that are defined with these width's:
A - 9B - 1C - 12D - 12

I need a macro that would add spaces to the right of the cell if the cell does not have number of characters of the lenght of the column width.

For instance:
Cell A1 has 5 characters so it would need 4 spaces.
Cell A2 has 7 characters so it would need 2 spaces.
Cell B1 has 1 character so it would NOT need a space.
Cell B2 has 0 characters so it would need 1 space.

Matching Cell With Or Without Spaces

Oct 11, 2013

I'm trying to match in the example, 'Name 1' which will pick the number below name 1. However if I have any space before, ' Name 1' in cell A1 than it won't match. I've put in wildcards in the formula but it still doesn't pick up the space? I need the formula to pick up either no spaces, or any number of spaces before or after 'Name 1'.

[Code] ......

I've attached an excel file showing the layout...

Removing Spaces In A Cell

Dec 12, 2008

I have a column with 11 digit numbers formatted as text (Column C) and it seems like there's three spaces after the number (In Sheet A). I am trying to do a vlookup comparing Sheet A to Sheet B. It's not working and not sure if it's the extra spacing in the cell of Sheet A that's causing the Vlookup not to work.

I would like to compare both lists to see what UPC's are on both sheets. Any ideas how I can do this?

In Sheet A, Column C contains UPC (11 digits) 07845968952

In Sheet B, Column E contains UPC (11 digits)

Remove Leading And Trailing Spaces In A Cell?

Dec 5, 2013

Any easy way to remove all spaces from a cell, both leading and trailing? I find it hard to believe that Excel doesn't have this functionality. I don't particulary want to write a VBA script since I have never done it but if that's the only way, I'd love to know how to write it. I have looked everywhere but obviously not in the right places.

Subtotal VBA Based On Spaces At Start Of Cell

May 2, 2014

I am looking to subtotal specific cells. Basically it is a download from a data base and I have designed an input area for other users to input their predicted figures. But I am trying to put an automatic subtotal for each area depending on the spaces at the start of the cell. I have got a very longwinded formula to get the right subtotals in other files by categorising each line in another file. But I am looking for a vba code to put a simple sum() or sumif() in the relevant areas. I have included some of the categorisation I have had to use for my other formulas.

Spaces Found In Cell V Copied Off Webpage

Dec 15, 2006

I copied some data off the web and there are a ton of cells with Currencies that I would like to take out the spaces infront of the numbers. Because without doing so, I am unable to use them in formulas.

so I would like to convert this ' $52,000' to '$52,000'

I tried the Trim(Cell) but that doesn't seem to work, this data does not appear to be text. I can't even change the format on it, doesn't make a difference.

Validation Formula To Prevent Spaces In Cell

Apr 27, 2007

I am in need of 2 validation macros (formulas) to enter into the validation criteria formula box when creating a custom validation.

1. A formula that will generate an error if there is a space in the text entry. Example:060107_Halo3CG prev.mpg would be an invalid entry due to the space after CG.

2. The same formula as above but this one also needs a 50 character limit added to the criteria.

Add Specific Number Of Spaces To Text In Cell

Apr 27, 2007

I've got a single column worksheet with a varying numbers of characters in each row.

At the end of each row's cell value I must add a 5 char string. Preceding that string I must have enough spaces to make the total length of each row 106 characters.

I've already:Defined and populated the string. Let's call it "strMyString".Established how many rows are in the sheet and stored it in "lngUsedRange"Written the following which cycles through each row establishing how many spaces need to be added:

Dim lngSpacesNeeded As Long

For i = 1 To lngUsedRange
lngSpacesNeeded = 101 - Len(Range("A" & i))
Next i

Now I just need to know what else to put before "Next i" to locate the end of the existing text in the cell and add the number of spaces in "lngSpacesNeeded" then add "strMyString".

Excel 2007 :: Ensure Cell Postcode Have 8 Characters (including Spaces)

Oct 8, 2012

Excel 2007.I have a list of postcodes (UK) which have different lengths of characters (including spaces) from 6-8, however our system seems to add additional spaces inbetween the postcode, so it could have upto 11/12 characters (inc spaces) Below is what could come out:

EH21 6PQ - 1 Space (8 Char)
EH12 9HG - 3 Spaces (10 Char)
E1 8DF - 3 Spaces (8 Char)
LL5 1GH - 2 Spaces (8 Char)
L5 1FG - 1 Space (6 Char)

What I need is a formula to ensure each postcode only has 8 characters by inserting spaces between if there's less than 8 char and trimming if there's more than 8 char

So from the above postcodes the desired results would be:

EH21 6PQ - 1 Space (8 Char) - This would be correct
EH12 9HG - 3 Spaces (10 Char) - Trim off 2 spaces from the middle
E1 8DF - 3 Spaces (8 Char) - This would be correct
LL5 1GH - 2 Spaces (8 Char) - This would be correct
L5 1FG - 1 Space (6 Char) - Insert 2 spaces in the middle

I have come up with this to Trim all of the data from rows 2:30 removing any trailing spaces after the last word in each cell. The macro takes a couple of minutes to run have I got something wrong that is making it run slowly or does the Trim process just take longer?

Dim myRange As Range
Dim myRow As Range
Set myRange = Range("2:30")
If myRange Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
myRange.Replace What:=Chr(160), Replacement:=Chr(32), _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False
For Each myRow In myRange.Columns
If Application. CountA(myRow) > 0 Then
myRow.TextToColumns Destination:=myRow(1), _
DataType:=xlFixedWidth, FieldInfo:=Array(0, 1)
End If
Next myRow
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
