Remove First X Digits And Last Y Digits From A Cell

Sep 25, 2009

I am editing a wine database which contains a vast amount of data, one column has the wine name and sometimes the vintage year in the begining or at the end of the cell. Sometimes the year is made of 2 digits (03, 05, ..) or 4 digits (1978, 2004, 2005, ...).
Is there a way to remove this vintage year form the string?

to make matters worse, there is often a single quote/apostrophe in front of the vintage year, which is driving me mad as 98% of the time it is one of these hidden ones that cannot be deleted using the find/replace function.

examples are like below:
De Wetshof Finesse/Lesca Cahrdonnay ‘07
De Wetshof Sauvignon Blanc ‘07
Lord Neethling Cabernet Franc 2002
Lord Neethling Pinotage ‘01
Bouchard Finlayson Tete de Cuvee Pinot Noir ‘07
Jacobsdal Pinotage 1994
Zondernaam Sauvignon Blanc 2007
Tokara Red
1976 St Emilion
03 Tokara rose
Plasir de Merle Cabernet Sauvignon ‘05
DuToitskloof Pinotage/Merlot/Ruby Cabernet
1999 Tradition Juracon 375ml

I have been searching the Internet for the past 2 days without luck on how to delete the end of string vintage year.

I have had some luck with the left side, as in:
=IF(ISERROR(VALUE(LEFT(B2,SEARCH(" ",B2)-1))),B2,MID(B2,SEARCH(" ",B2)+1,LEN(B2)))

As I am not an expert with Excel, I have no idea on how to use VBA (every time I have tried even basic things, I failed) nor even sure how the above funtion works (found it on another site).

I thought I could acheive my goal in two steps, first removing the left side vintage and use this partial result with the RIGHT equivalent funtion, but it simply is not working!

Does anyone have an idea on how to help with this?

Ideally I would love to cut the vintage year, whether 2 or 4 digit, whether on right or left of cell and paste it in another cell, so to avoid manually doing it.

However, this is surely too complicated to do, so iwould settle with just deleting the vintage year and manually typing the vintage in another cell.

I have the following working great, but would like to see it refine a little, as the data vlookup is 6 digits, but i only needs the last 4 digits is enough for me to work, my question is how do i go about adding that to the following function i have implemented and working fine.

Remove The First 4 Digits

1. Remove the first 4 digits from each "Appeal ID"

2. Insert a new column (first column) called "Chapter"

3. Run a v-lookup down the new column against a file that is stored on my desktop. The v-lookup will cross check the Appeal ID against the file to identify the Chapter

4. Sort the data alphabetically by Chapter

5. Create seperate Excel files for each Chapter ...

Remove 14 Digits From The END Of Text In A Column

Jul 9, 2009

I know how to remove the first part of a text, but not the end. I have a very large amount of data in which the first column contains a product description and then the UPC code. I need to isolate the product name from the UPC code into 2 columns. I used =RIGHT(B2,14) to isolate the UPC, but since the length of the product name varies, I'm not sure how to isolate the product name. I have looked at using the TRIM and TRUNC functions without any luck. 'Text to columns' doesn't work because I have multiple spaces, 'Text to columns' would work if I could used 2 digits as the delimiter, but the function doesn't allow that.

Can someone please suggest a function or formula for this?

Here is an examples of how the text appears in the field. (Note: I only need to cut off the UPC code, I need the measure information to stay).

some really long product name 12 oz 5 bag 09-99999-99999
another shorter name 2 oz 09-99999-99998

So, one cell can have a '1' or a '999999' or any combination between them. Now this is the problem.

I want a formula that will fill those cells that don't contain a number up to 6 digits. So if a cell contains '254' I will like this formula to fill the cell like this: 000254.

This should happen with any number that don't have a number with six digits.

78 should be 000078, 78652 should be 078652 and so on.

Find Max Of Last Four Digits?

Jul 12, 2014

I can't seem to find a way to find the max of only the last four digits of a cell, matching the first 8. As an example:

I have thousands of cells in a column like this, (and I can't add any columns to the sheet), and I have a cell with the first three digits and the second three digits. So, out of all these numbers, I want the MAX of ONLY the numbers with the first 8 digits of "800-123-". Also, the decimal on the end is how many times the number was called, and any the decimal and any number after it is to be ignored. The answer would be "800-123-0024", or "0024", I just need a faster way to find it without searching for it.

888-555-0099.2
800-123-0022.3

How To Give Last 6 Digits Only If A #

Jun 24, 2009

I have a formula now that is =right(C2,5)+0 that is working well. However the data has grown and sometimes there is also 6 digits now instead of 5. So I need it to pick up either one 5 or 6. When I change the formula to 6 it works but picks up a / which happens to be before the 5 digit # sequence when there is only 5 digits. It works great for the 6. Is there another way around this so I only get the numbre digits if there are 5 or 6 and not the /. Maybe an if statement. I've tried several ways but none work right. The only other thing I can think of is to get it as above with the =right(C2,6)+0 and then afterwards to a find and replace and remove the / from the data. I was just tryign not to add an extra step to the process. Any ideas please?

Example of the data in coloumn C2 is:
15/2000/4567/NA/NA/97305or with 6 digits at the end15/2000/4567/NA/NA/973052there is always just 5 or 6 digits at the end that I need.

Replace First X Digits

Dec 14, 2007

I've recorded a macro to replace the Australian telephone number area codes (at the beginning of each phone number) with international dialling codes. I also need to replace the first two digits ONLY of mobile ( cell) phone numbers which, in Australia, all begin with "04" (see last part of macro code below - column L:L).

With the code the way I've recorded it, if it finds "04" in another part of the number (e.g. 0411 104 111), the second occurrence of the "04" will automatically be replaced with "614" as well which I don't want. So I need some code to add so that the macro only searches and replaces those first two digits in that column. I hope I'm making sense?!

Puts A Comma Before The Last Two Digits

Apr 26, 2007

I did post a problem where I have a number like 123456 and I need to have Excel change it so that it puts a comma before the last two digits .. like so: 1234,56

I got a reply where I got the solution to use 0","00 and this works in Excel (using the custom format)

The only problem is that although the number changes in the cell to 1234,56 it doesn΄t do so in the FX window and thus when I use the number to multiply it is actually 123456 instead of 1234,56 like it want it to be.
