Pull Specific Word From String Of Text In Cell?

May 16, 2004

I need to pull a specific word from a string of text in a cell and have that word shown in an adjacant cell. For example A1 will contain the text "Smith Sun Alliance Pension Fund" I need B2 to show "Pension". I cannot use any filtering or text to columns as the word Pension can be anywhere within the text in A1 and I have thousands of entries. So I need a function.

Pull The Entire Row If It Finds The Specific Word

Sep 23, 2009

The following sub will look in the file ("FY09 SOF"), in column "A", search for the strings that begin with "2109", "3009", or ends in "-1", and copy the entire row. It will then paste these in the file ("FY09 PR Log Blank").

I also need it to look in column "C" in the ("FY09 SOF") file and pull the entire row if it finds the word "Payroll".

For some reason it will pull everything needed except the "Payroll" rows. What am I doing wrong?

Sub get_data()
Dim wb As Workbook, wbDest As Workbook
Dim ws As Worksheet, wsDest As Worksheet
Dim lngCalc As Long
Dim FoundCells As Range
Dim FoundCell As Range

Set wb = Workbooks("FY09 SOF")
Set wbDest = Workbooks("FY09 PR Log Blank")
Set wsDest = wbDest.Worksheets("Paste all here, then sort")

With Application
.ScreenUpdating = False..........................

How To Find Duplicated String Before A Character That Contains Specific Word

May 16, 2014

In column A, I have the following lines:

2014-05-15 02:08:43 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 02:31:37 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 02:37:19 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 02:37:20 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 03:07:19 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 15:01:37 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 15:04:46 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)

I would like to use conditional formatting to highlight cells which have the same first 16 characters (yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm) before the "@" AND that contains the words "CHANGE WORLD". Therefore, I'm looking for a formula I could include in the conditional formatting so I can easily find the "CHANGE WORLD" that occurred at the same time (minus the seconds, they may vary slightly).

I'm trying to pull a specific 10 digit number from a text string. The ID # is always 10 digits however sometimes there are dates in the data that need to be excluded as well as other numbers such as "I-9". The 10 digit number will always start with 1 or 8.

I'm trying to pull text out of a middle of a long string of data located within one cell. The string is not always the same size and the text I need to pull out is not always in the same spot

For example - in this string

I want to pull out the text "Jimmy Bop (Broad)
It will always be between "adgroup=" and ">>/" (although sometimes the character ">>/" will appear multiple times within the string.

Conditional Rank Based On Whether A Criteria Cell Includes A Specific Text String

May 8, 2009

I'm racking my brains as to how I can structure a formula to conditionally rank a value in an array against only those values in the array whose corresponding criteria cell includes a specific letter.

So for example I have a list of 12 values, say 126; 239; 0; 171; 162; 157; 130; 199; 122; 153; 0; 15.
Each of those values corresponds to a heading, say: CDE; DFE; FGE; DFE; ERD; DEA; BDF; DFB; CDE; CEF; CAB; FAB. As you will note some of the headings may or may not be the same and may or may not include the same letters in different orders.

How can I write a formula that ranks in ascending order a given value drawn from the above list (which will be in another cell but which in this case is, let's say, the first value: 126) only against those values whose heading includes a specific character, for example the character C (the character in question will vary and be defined in a specific cell).

As an added complication I need the ranking calculation to exclude any zero values. So in the above example what the formula needs to do is rank the value 126 against a sub-set of the whole array comprising only the values 126; 122; 153; 0.

The answer I need is 2 because, discounting the zero value, 126 is the second highest value.

As the string length of the supplier changes,I cant use the left function that I would normally doI racked my brains on this and I'm sure I've seen it done before cant remember where.The string length of each cell is 21 digits with padded spaces to the right of the cell. If it helps the number of spaces in between the supplier and number changes each time.

Pull Out Earliest And Latest Dates Associated With Text String In Workbook

Feb 7, 2014

I'm trying to pull out the earliest and latest dates associated with a text string in a workbook.

Min Max dates example.xlsx

i.e. in this example, I want one column to display the earliest date associated with DU 145, and the next column to display the latest.

From what I understand, I need an array formula to do this and have written the following, which works:

=MIN(IF($A$2:$A$6=A2,$B$2:$B$6))
(confirmed with CSE) - and the same for MAX.

Where I'm struggling is that DU 145 may be entered in the workbook as DU145, DU 145 or DU-145 and I need to take all of them into account. I tried:

=MIN(IF($A$2:$A$6="du*145",$B$2:$B$6))

As this works in a COUNTIF formula in the same sheet. But this just returns a date of 00/01/1900. I'm new to array formulae & haven't really worked them out yet. Is there a way to do this? I assume it's something to do with the way I'm entering text as removing the wildcard * makes no difference.

Formula To Add All Of Times If Text String Contains Word

Jun 11, 2013

I currently have a large amount of data extracted from a performance tracking system. The columns I am concerned with are Page Title and Time (the time it takes the system to navigate to the this page).

I am trying to create a dashboard to show:

Webpage Title (each unique instance of the webpage)Aggregate Time (total time it takes for all instances)# of Hits (Each time the value appears in the data)Average Time (this formula I can handle; Aggregate Time/# of Hits)

The major issue is that the webpage is extracted as XYZ001 -- PAGE1, XYZ439 -- PAGE2, XYZ854 -- PAGE1, etc. Basically, I am only concerned with what comes after the --.

Here is an example of the two tabs.

DASHBOARD TAB:

Page Title
Aggregate Time
# of Hits
Avg. Time
PAGE1

[Code]...

Basically, I am looking for a formula that says,

For any instance in the Page Title column that contains PAGE3, add the amount in the Time column (i.e., 1.2 +.5).

Returning Row Numbers Where One Word Contained In Text String - Multiple Occurrences

Oct 30, 2013

I am trying to identify the row(s) where a match occurs when there can be multiple occurrences of the match.

A
B
C

1
john brown
Brown
True

2
Cathy Smith

3
Brown excavating company

4
XYZ Corp

5
Brown Advisors Inc.

The first test I ran in cell C1 with the information above was to determine if "Brown" was located in the range of A1:A5 using formula:
=IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH("*"&B1&"*",A1:A5,0))=TRUE,"True","False")

In the case of the word "Brown" it occurs in the range of A1:A5 three times, so the result of the above formula would be "True"

Now what I would like to do is return the locations, in this case the row number(s), where the word brown is contained range of A1:A5 because in the case of the word Brown, it occurs three separate times in the range of A1:A5. I would like the resulting value of the formula in this case to be "1, 3, 5" indicating the word Brown occurs in rows 1, 3, and 5. The formula also needs to work in case there is only one match as well.

I tried using the below array formula:
={MATCH(FALSE,ISERROR(SEARCH(B1,'Working List of Vendors'!$A$1:$A$5)),0)}
But it would only return the first occurrence of the match which in this case would be row 1, or "1"

Populate Excel Cells With Specific Text From Word Document

Jul 22, 2014

Let me start by stating that I am a novice at writing macro script. I am trying to write a script that will open and search a Word doc, find specific text in that document, and populate certain excel cells with that information.

Ex. of Word doc:

5.1.2.3 Install gasket [12], using bolt [5] and nut [8].

I would like the script to search for and populate any number between the [ ] into a specific excel cell, also I would like it to identify and populate an excell cell with the associated step, e.g.: "5.1.2.3", which will be at the begining of that step (step could be several sentences long). Also, I would like the script to look for and identify/populate an excel cell with any number of words such as: "install", "uninstall", "break", "scrap", or "remove" also associated with that step.

fdsf&dasfsdf&s_kwcid=dsfasfsdf

I want to do is search for "&s_kwcid" or anything containing "&s_kwcid" and replace it with blank. So above would then read:

fdfs
sfsd
&dfsdaf&dsafdsf
fdsf&dasfsdf

I tried =IF(SUM(COUNTIF(E2,{"&s_kwcid*"}))=1,E2,"") but it didn't work. I tried auto filtering, and using contains &s_kwcid* but it didn't filter out results, but find &s_kwcid did find results for text anywhere in string, so I know the problem is there.
