Replace Just Single Character From Many Of Same One Within Text?

Apr 13, 2013

have to deal with a text database into Excel but ended up finding irregular format that need to be fixed. As it can be seen within the text right below, there are space delimiters in between the words. I want to replace always the 2nd space from right to left with a semicolon.

20/10/2012 CENTAURO CE 39 (06/10) 57.97 0.00
20/10/2012 CENTAURO CEFT 534 (09/10) 1,235.34 0.56
20/10/2012 CENTAURO (06/10) 5,345,200.00 45.00 1.01
20/10/2012 TFRE (06/10) 1.00 0.00

Text String To Single Character Array?

Jul 13, 2012

There is a method to use ROW(1:10) within an array formula to strip a string into individual elements e.g.

HELLO > {"H","E","L","L","O"}

I cannot find it anywhere, thought it was something like =MID(A1,ROW(1:10),1) but not yielding results.

Replace Character With Another

Oct 9, 2007

I'm trying to go through a short list of letters and change the contents of every cell in the list that contains a "c" into a "M". I've written this code, but I get a #Value! message on my spreadsheet when I run it:

Function FindCpmDpm(SearchRng As Range)

Dim CelRng As Range

For Each CelRng In SearchRng

If CelRng.Value = "c" Then
CelRng.Value = "M"
End If

Next CelRng

End Function

I am having trouble accessing the cell which contains the "c".

Replace Specific Character ONLY If Its LAST In The Sheet

Nov 27, 2013

Switched to Excel after using OpenOffice and I'm stuck on knowing what an old a 'find and replace' formula would be in Excel. It would remove a specific character (or word) ONLY if it was the last characters in a cell.

The old find and replace for open office:
Find: (.*)/$
Replace: $1

It's not that important now to delete a word, mainly the last slash '/' ONLY if it's the last character e.g. this data has 2 rows with a '/' as the last character

website.com/page
website.com/page/
website.com/page/page/

Running my old find and replace formula would remove the last slashes, but leave the others

website.com/page
website.com/page
website.com/page/page

Need simple replacement to the find and replace but a formula is also right.

Unwanted Character, Can Not Search And Replace

Dec 18, 2007

I have a sheet that I often have to edit and import into SQL database.

I have no control over the format of the sheet given to me and it seems that something has changed causing me the following problem.

When I try to import the Data itís showing ten times as many items than are actually there.

The problem I think is in a text column. Iíve tested this by using an old column from a previous sheet and pasting this into the new sheet and I can import it ok.

What I seem to have is a rectangular box character but Iím not sure what it is.
I can copy and past it into Notepad as it is, but pasted into Word it seems to be a carriage Return.

So whether itís an actual charter or not Iím not sure.

Are there any tools out there so I can hover over characters in Excel to see what it is! So at least I can be sure what Iím trying to Search and Replace?

Add Single Character Before & After Each Cell Value In Column

Jan 27, 2009

I am trying to do is put an asterisk at the beginning and the end of the Information in a cell for the entire column. Is there a way to make a macro that, once I highlight a column, it will put an asterisk at the beginning and end of the information in each cell in that column until a blank cell is reached where the macro will then stop? This will save me a lot of work. It will work for me if a particular column has to be defined in the macro, but would be better if it is one I can just highlight.

This would also work fine for me if I just had to highlight the cells that I want to use as well. Sorry if this seems to be a stupid question, but I am a very novice excel user

Fill Cell With Single Character

Nov 27, 2006

I would like to enter an X or O into a square cell so that it completely fills the cell.

I want to eliminate the space between the text character and the cell border.

The character does not necessarily have to be text so long as it can be automatically entered into the cell by a macro and can also be deleted by a sub routine to refresh the worksheet for new data.

I created autoshapes for a cross and a circle but I have no idea how to substitute these for the text characters in the worksheet or delete them afterwards.

Control That Allows Single Character Formatting

Oct 5, 2007

When I try to add the Richtextbox control, I get this error: "The control could not be created because it is not properly licensed." Since I'm in a corporate setting, I don't think I can get around this (since I don't have access to the computer's registry and several users will be using it). I have figured out a way to present the user with some rich text controls (Bold, Italics, Underline, Font, Color, etc), which will add special characters around the selected text which then is interpreted by a procedure and formats the text in the output destination (HTML document).

However, that tends to clutter up the textbox and makes it somewhat cumbersome for some users to edit the text. I'd prefer to have them see the formatted text in the textbox, if possible. So, is there a way to get some sort of Rich Text Box without the RichTextBox control? It's long shot, I know.

Remove / Replace ONLY FIRST Occurrence Of First Character In All Rows Of Column?

Jul 30, 2013

I need to remove the first character in each row of a column, but only its first occurrence in each row. For instance:

Say, column 2 has following data (lots of rows, by the way):

First Text" - "blabla"
=SomeText2 = "blabla"
SomeText3 = "blabla"
=SomeText4 = "blabla"
-SomeText5 --- "blabla"
........
....

I would like to use the VBA code to remove ONLY the FIRST occurrence of the FIRST character specified (either "=" or "-") in each row in that column, so that I get:

First Text" - "blabla"
SomeText2 = "blabla"
SomeText3 = "blabla"
SomeText4 = "blabla"
SomeText5 --- "blabla"
......
...and so on...

I tried to use this:

Code:
Columns(2).Cells.Replace What:="-", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
ReplaceFormat:=False
Columns(2).Cells.Replace What:="=", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, _
ReplaceFormat:=False
but it replaces ALL occurrences of "=" and "-" and that is not what I need.

I also tried this code:

Code:
With Range("B:B")
.Value = Replace(.Value, "=", "", 1, 1)
End With

But It doesn't work either.

Compare Two Columns For Single Character Matches

May 20, 2008

I have two excel sheets exported from two sources of information. Both sheets contain 1 column which is the primary data, ie, there is no duplicate of that information. Each information in these column represent 1 device in the real world.

Now, for example:
In one sheet, I have: SDV0620B
In the other sheet, I have: SSDV-B0620B

Please note that, both data actually represent the same device. What I now need to make sure is that, I ccan identify each corresponding data from the two sheets.

So, here is the problem that I am facing, identifying two data which are same but has two different representation techniques. (since the data are from two different sources)

I came up with the idea that, if I can check the sequence of characters with one column to another, then I might be able to pull it off.

For example,
we take SDV0620B, and match the sequence of character with SSDV-B0620B.
therefore, first is S (from SDV0620B)
match with SSDV-B0620B
then, D
match SSDV-B0620B
then V
match SSDV-B0620B
and so on, until the end.

And if the 1st sequence is found in the second sequnce of characters, then it is called a match! Hope I have explained it clearly. I have provided a file with some of the data copy and pasted out, to give you an idea of what the values look like.

Replace Small Square Character With Line Break After Import

Nov 18, 2008

When importing text from a CSV, the 'line returns' appear in a cell as a small square with faded left and right sides. The do force a line break as intended. However, they are a nuisance in reading and printing.

When I use ALT+ENTER to force a line break, there is no visible character (on screen or printed) for the line break, which is as it should be.

How can I replace this 'special character' line break with one not visible?
