I have a huge column of data. This data has few prefixes that I need to remove. I have a list of possible prefixes. Some prefixes are 1,2,3 or 4 characters long. Could you please suggest best way of removing these prefixes (VBA if possible)?
Following are some of the examples of prefixes:
I read the thread below on how to utilize the Subsitute function to remove periods and thought about being able to use it for this. However, I have some phone #'s in my list that contain multiple 1- scenarios in them because the area code or 3-digit prefix sometimes include a 1- also. How do I make the formula only look at the 1- for long distance and not any other 1- found in the phone #? I want to remove all of the 1- for long distance because we are trying to use a new autodialer that is pre-programmed with the 1-.
I have a question regarding deletion and replacement in a new field. ie. A1 reads email@example.com. I want A2 to read microsoft. What is the code to delete "dave.jones@" and ".com" to be revealed in a new field.
I need to extract (and then use for SumIfs) only item numbers from the long description. Please see the attached list where item number column shows existing list & next column shows what i want to extract. The exrtacted part if has any trailing or succeeding letters, characters between numbers should stay. for example from "SGA:RV-SVA:PEPPERS/PEPPERONCINI:SV9176001/232034" I need to extract " SV9176001/232034" or from " SPICES:BULK SPICES 7100:9054B" I need to extract " 7100:9054B". Can some one please urgently help me on this.
Im basicaly pulling a report wherein the details will have a column as number.
It basicaly should be a three digit number. The tool will have the information as below.
But when im pulling out the report into excel, the zeros in the prefix goes away and the report looks like the below
I just checked the tools previllages and it seems that we cannot do anyting in pulling the data as it is in the tool.
So wht im trying to do is to save the report in a folder where i have placed a validation sheet which will have references of the parent report.
So when i open the report the reference will pull up the data and in here i would like to add a validation which will add "0" in the prefix if VNO is a 2 digit number or "00" if the VNO is a one digit number.
so this gives a part number depending on what number is placed in O6. What I need to do know is look at 2 different cells and for each combination of numbers give a different part number. so if A1 is 2 and B1 is 3 give a certain result.
I belong to a fantasy cycling league and after every race, I copy the race results to award each rider their points for the day. The site I visit most frequently lists the riders results in this format:
1. Alberto Contador (Spa) Team Sax Bank Tinkoff 4:05:00 2. Lance Armstrong (USA) Team Livestrong etc... 4:06:00
I usually copy the results to my spreadsheet then calculate each riders points.
The'results end up looking like this in Excel:
1. Alberto Contador (Spa) Team Sax Bank Tinkoff 4:05:00 2. Lance Armstrong (USA) Team Livestrong 4:06:00
So, the data ends up in 3 cells. The position in one cell, the rider and their nationality and their team in another, and the time of arrival in another cell
Is there a way in Excel where I can get rid of or delete all the data after a rider's name?
I usually end up pasting the rider information to Word, then replacing the (***) with a tab symbol, then pasting back to Excel and get rid of the data that's after the name by deleting the cells to which that data was transferred.
Is there an easier way to do this in Excel, or a macro I can create?...
I have a limited amount of VBA knowledge. My limited knowledge is based on solving my problems by looking at the answers already on this site and trying to adapt it to my needs. Here goes:
I import a list of address and telephone numbers (100+) into excel. example - Cell A1 contains "10 downing street, whitehall, london, SW1A 2AA 01234 567890", sometimes there is another space after the number, sometimes there is no telephone number. I want to remove the telephone number at the end if it is there. Have searched the forums have have come up with the follow solution:
1. import list to column A 2. copy and paste Trim to column B 3. copy values in column B and paste to column A 4. delete column B 5. remove the end numbers 6. copy and paste Trim to column B 7. copy values in column B and paste to column A 8. delete column B 9. remove the end numbers
It looks like this in code:
'select (=TRIM(A1)) formula and paste to sheet Sheets("Formulas").Select Columns("B:B").Select Application.CutCopyMode = False Selection.Copy Sheets("Sheet4").Select Columns("B:B").Select ActiveSheet.Paste
'copy values of column B to Column A and delete column B
'copy values of column B to Column A and delete column B
Columns("B:B").Select Selection.Copy Columns("A:A").Select Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _ :=False, Transpose:=False Columns("B:B").Select Application.CutCopyMode = False Selection.ClearContents Range("A1").Select End Sub
I know this is a long winded way around (still chuffed I worked it out by myself though!). If I merge all the macros into one marco it continually loops and deletes everything in the cells and I have to press escape to stop it.
My questions are:
1. Why, when I merge all the macros doesnt it work the same as individual macros? (I would like to know for future reference). 2. Its there a better way to remove the telephone numbers?
I am trying to do a VLOOKUP on a worksheet with a list of our Part numbers. The Part numbers begin with zero and go into the alphabet with anywhere from 3 digits upto 18.
When I sort the sheet Excel sorts the numeric by the number of digits in the number AND totally ignores the first zero. I can not format as numbers since again Excel drops the first zero. Therefore, when I do the VLOOKUP it will not look through the entire numeric list for the higher digit numbers. Is there anyway to resolve my VLOOKUP issue with indexing or?
I am trying to find a way to eliminate endings off of part numbers.
Below are the list of endings that I need to be eliminated from an extremely long list of variant part numbert. This list below may need to have additional endings added, but nothing will be removed. Please see attachment for example of part numbers that need below endings eliminated. Thanks!

I am trying to count how many orders have Part numbers A and B on the same order. If order 123 has part number A and B on it then return true or else false. I think Match and array might be a way to go but I am still not able to come up with the result.
Im using a formula to identify new part numbers. The formula is: =IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(A217,Existing!A:A,0)),"","NEW"). However you can clearly see from the attached that if has flagged a duplicate part number as new. Why would it do that? Check out A1368 in existing and A217 in new.
I'm trying to run a script from a CAD software which exports property values into an Excel spreadsheet. I need to then sort the spreadsheet by part numbers (which are located in column G) but my script is not working correctly. My data range is A1:G50.
I have a fairly large list (1200 rows) of part numbers that I would like to sort. The part number has text and numbers, with a number in the middle. I need excel to ignore this middle number when sorting (but not any of the other numbers). Excel currently sorts like this:
I need to remove duplicate Part Numbers where other information in the cells will not match. In the following two examples, the only difference is that the COMP_ID: number is different, but for my purposes, the second example is a duplicate and needs to be removed. I have hundreds of rows of this type of information with various part numbers: ...
I have a list of part numbers and a new drawing number and old drawing number. I'm am trying to put this list on the second page of a workbook and write a code on thie first page that allows a person to enter the part number and the old and new drawing numbers will be displayed.
I have the following Macro which groups same part numbers in an excel sheet and also creating a blank row after each (or set of same) part numbers. Their prices are in the adjacent cells. I want to add the price cells and the total to appear in the blank cell below the prices. I have one part number in Cell say A1, Its price in Cell B1 i have another same part number in A2, its price in Cell B2 (The macro has grouped them together) Now I want to add cell B1 & B2 and the result in B3 (Row 3 is blank, created by a macro after each group of similar part numbers)
This process is to be repeted in the entire worksheet.
Sub InsertRow_At_Change() 'part number Dim LastRow As Long Dim X As Long LastRow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row Application.ScreenUpdating = False
For X = LastRow To 3 Step -1 If Cells(X, 1).Value Cells(X - 1, 1).Value Then If Cells(X, 1).Value "" Then If Cells(X - 1, 1).Value "" Then Cells(X, 1).EntireRow.Insert Shift:=xlDown End If End If End If Next X Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
I have a list full of different IDs with different version numbers (This format: AKH123.1).
I'm trying to clean the list - removing all duplicate IDs but leaving only the largest version number.
I managed to remove the last digit using LEN/VLOOKUP and removing duplicates, but leaving only the largest version number is too tricky for me. I've thought about trying something with LARGE but can't wrap my mind around it.
My thought process went like this: I want to find all occurrences of "AKH123" and return the largest one.
The list contains about 8000 entries and this would save en enormous amount of work.
I'd like to create a macro to display the top 5 most frequently occurring repairs on sheet 3 of my workbook. I'd like the macro to analyse all the sheets in my workbook except for the first 3 and then output the results on the 3rd sheet from T50 onward. I have attached a template as an example of how all the sheets in the workbook look (excluding the first 3).
All the sheets have the same layout as the "Survey Template" worksheet.The repairs are located under the Log Book Review of Historical Structural Repair in the Survey Template worksheet and all the repairs are picked through a drop down list that is based on a table of repairs listed in the Parts and Prices sheet within the workbook. I have assigned random serial numbers to the repairs (if that makes it any easier to code instead of locating exact string matches).
