Remove Non-alpha Characters From Alphanumerics With Option To Remove Numbers

Aug 8, 2009

I have found a very useful UDF for removing non-alpha characters from strings. (See below, Credit for posting to Stanley D Grom - Ozgrid post Removing Non-alpha Characters From Text).

Option Explicit

Private Function RemoveCharacters(InString As String) As String
Dim intLoopCounter As Integer
Dim intStringLength As Integer
Dim intASCIIVal As Integer
intStringLength = Len(InString)
InString = LCase(InString)
For intLoopCounter = 1 To intStringLength
intASCIIVal = Asc(Mid(InString, intLoopCounter, 1))
If intASCIIVal >= 97 And intASCIIVal <= 122 Then
RemoveCharacters = RemoveCharacters + Mid(InString, intLoopCounter, 1)
End If
Next intLoopCounter
End Function

Two requests:

1. Could the UDF be modified such that any part of a string contained within brackets is also removed (e.g. "NLGA High Street (West-Enfield), EN6" becomes "nlgahighstreeten")?

2. Can an argument be added to the format of the UDF, such that numbers (0 to 9) are either included or excluded (e.g. RemoveCharacters(A1,1) where the argument 1 would include any numbers (0 to 9), so "NLGA2003 High Street (West-Enfield), EN6" becomes "nlga2003highstreeten6")? blankor 0would exclude these numbers, i.e. would return "nlgahighstreeten"

Remove Characters From Right Of String

Dec 26, 2009

I'm trying to remove everything after a specific character in a string.

I.e. change a website address to the hostname


I'm using this formula, which strips the http:// and the www., but does not replace the characters after the first remaining "/" as the wildcard is not recognized.

=SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(A2,"www.",""), A2,"http://",""), A2, "/*", "")

Maco That Will Remove Certain Characters

Feb 19, 2008

I have to manually go through about 9,000 workbooks. In cell E43 of a certain sheet called "list" I have to delete underscores(_) and replace them with a single space. and remove the Rev** after each name

In example: company_name_t45671000_RevA2

Will look like this when I'm done: company name t45671000

Now I've tried to make a Macro that will delete the underscores and the Rev which worked fine except that it replaced the names with the the name that the macro was recored under.

IE: The first sheet I done worked fine when I hit the keyboard shortcut command which was company_name_t45671000_RevA2.

The second workbook sheet of "list" got fixed but had the name of the one I fixed before it: company name t45671000, where it should have been "company name s6743245.

Is there a way around this?

Also sometimes the sheets are protected, is there a way to incorporate "unprotect sheet" when it needs to be unprotected and then after the file has been corrected, re-enable protection again?

Remove Characters From End Of String Only

Dec 21, 2006

I have a set of data in column a that consists of email addresses. These email addresses all have underscores after them, ie "abc@hotmail.com_______". It will be a different amount of underscores everytime and I don't want underscores to be removed that are actually part of the address. I had been using the find replace function through vba, ie

Selection.Replace What:="_", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _

however this ofcourse removes from actual parts of the email address. Is there a way to do this?

Remove Last X Characters From String

Jan 22, 2008

I've come across multiple times where I have to do this same sort of task, and I don't think I am doing it the most efficient way.

What I need to do is take a variable which holds a string and remove the last 9 characters from it. Don't need to know what the last 9 characters are, all I care about is knowing what the other characters are in the string. I know this can be done through thingslike susbstrings, but I don't think VBA has a substring function.

Copy Column But Remove Last Few Characters

Mar 4, 2009

I have a column of data, (10,000 entries), a list of file names basically, e.g:

Mortality Project Executive Summary.pdf
RPP - AA rate and swaps.xls
Commodities.PPT presentation.ppt
Meeting Preparation 20090302.docx

Anywho the point is I want to remove the file extensions (and of course the "."s just before), but some obviously have 4 character extensions, some 3, some 2 etc... Some documents also have "."s in the file name that I do not want to remove, basically just working from the right keep removing until the first "." is removed.
So the final list wants to be:

Mortality Project Executive Summary
RPP - AA rate and swaps
Commodities.PPT presentation
Meeting Preparation 20090302

I know I should VBA it, but I want it all in the one spreadsheet and that's a bit above me. The document has about 30 other columns.

Since I have several data sheets, some of which having 500000+ rows, Find and Replace and similar options are not viable.

I wish to replace each of these characters with regular English characters in all sheets. If that is difficult, these must at least be removed from the whole text. note that I need to preserve regular characters that are commonly used, particularly the hyphen (-) and underscore (_).

VBA Remove Invalid Range Name Characters

Nov 3, 2008

Issue is, sheet names allow characters that range names do no (i.e. #, - etc).

Is there a relatively simple way to clean a sheet name to allow it to be used as a range name.

Code example below. I am using Replace, but unsure how many characters are invalid. Unfortunately I am referencing a third party workbook, so no control over sheet names.

Set wb = ThisWorkbook

For Each nm In wb.Names

For Each sh In wb.Sheets

Remove Characters Right Of Comma In A Web Query

Aug 7, 2009

I currently have a macro that imports data from a web-based query then deletes column A from the query. I do this because I am using a VLOOKUP on the data and the VLOOKUP value would be in column B if I didn't.

The website has changed the format and now once column A is deleted, I'm left with a format of FirstName LastName, POS TEAM (i.e. Tom Brady, QB NEP). My VLOOKUP looks for FirstName LastName so I'm getting the "N/A" error now. I need to remove the "," and "POS" and "TEAM" from the imported data. This would be easy enough if the number of characters right of and including the comma was consistent, but it isn't. (Also, text to columns then CONCATENATE won't work because VLOOKUP looks at values, not formula results...)

Now I know the formula =LEFT(A1,FIND(",",A1)-1) works, but how would I incorporate this into the worksheet to keep the values in column A and not add additional columns to throw off my VLOOKUP.

Ideally I'd like a simple macro to add to my current macro to use the above formula, but I'm not sure of the wording.

Remove Multiple Characters From Text

Nov 20, 2006

This may be a very simple question so forgive me for my ignorance. I have text in individual cells that look something like this (not actually addresses but same format):

Doe, John 123, Anywhere St (Apt A), Anytown Anystate 12345

I have about 5,000 records. I would like to convert the records to look like this:

Doe John 123 Anywhere St Anytown Anystate 12345

Basically I want to take out all non alphanumeric characters and anything between curved or square brackets. In my minds eye my macro would read something like this:

Do until last character.

If character = alphanumericTrue Move to next characterFalse If character = spaceTrue Move to next characterFalse If character = curved or square bracketTrue Delete all text in brackets including brackets then move to next characterFalse Delete character then move to next character
Loop. I would of course create an additional loop to run down the 5,000 records.
