I want to accept a string, well typically a name say "Manik" from one of the cells in Excel say "B2"; then split it as characters M a n i k and display it in five other cells like say from D2:D6. how can I do it? Also the name may change its not a fixed string.
I have a spreadsheet that uses sql to gather data from our servers. From this data, I use concatenate function to put the data into one cell ready to copy/paste into our sms program. The program will only take 160 characters at a time..
Result I need:
For the cell to split into two/three cells if over 160 characters (and to break after the last complete word), and if appropriate, it needs to say 1of2 at the beginning of the 1st message for example, and 2of2 at the beginning of the second.
I have previous been given the below macro from here that splits a string of text in one cell into groups of 30 and then puts them into several cells, works perfectly.
What I would like to incorpate now is the ability to overide the point at which it splits the text. i.e. if the inputter puts a "|" (for example) in the original text, this will cause a split in the text and it will restart its 30 count from this point onwards.
Example of what I would like to achieve:
Cell A1 = I would like to change this string of text into groups of 30, where this appears | I would like it to start a new split of 30s from this point on wards and again if another one of these | appears in the text.
Cell B1 = I WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE THIS Cell C1 = STRING OF TEXT INTO GROUPS OF Cell D1 = 30, WHERE THIS APPEARS
I am suffering with split a long descriptions into 3 cells with criteria 1st cell not more than 30 characters, 2nd cell not more than characters and 3rd cell will locate the remaining characters there. I think this is quite easy if I use LEN/MID/RIGHT/LEFT formula. However, I wish the formula will smart enough to split word by word. refer to example below:-
"My lecturer replied, that i really did very bad in final, nothing's gonna change my plan."
If I use left(A1,30) formula, the result is "My lecturer replied, that i re"however, the word "really" is cut half way. I am finding the formula that split description to not more than 30 characters and won't cut my string and become incomplete word. Expected result should be 1st cell "My lecturer replied, that i", then "really did very bad in final," at 2nd cell.
This formula I want to apply it in another workbook. It split in different columns the content of a cell.
The formula is below:
In cell A2 I have the following data: |516582-001-99|414816-001-99|414816-003-99|516582-001-99|
If I apply the formula above in cells B2 to E2 it returns a blank cells. But if I delete the first "|" sign in the left side manually the formula works perfectly by splitting the cell into columns from B2 to E2. The issue here is that I have more than 300,000 records. Just imagine the amount of time invested in just deleting the first "|" at the left side.
I need a variation of the formula above that in first place delete the first "|" at the left side and after that continue with the proper work of the formula.
I have entered text as I would like in the formula bar. However not all of the text is displayed in the cell. I have sized the cell so it should definitely dispaly all text. Word wrap is on But the text displayed in the cell is truncated
Also the spreadsheet was originally in 2007 format, I converted to 2003. I also tried copying all text from the formula bar, pasted to notepad, deleted from Excel, copied from Notepad, pasted back to the formula bar. Still not all text is displayed. In a helper cell I dropped in =len(xx) where xx is the reference. Returned 1357
I have a exel file which has been exported from Access to exel. There are many cells which shows the data as in Cell A1 with the Linefeed character in between data in a cell. Is there any way (may be using a macro) where I can remove the character and get it to display as B1 in the same cell(A1). The file is attached herewith.
I have created a VBA which organizes data from duplicate accounts into a single row so that it is properly formatted for our email system. The one issue I am having trouble handling is cell overflow. Column B cannot end up with more than 5 pieces of information. Each piece of info is seperated by a comma. If there is overflow, the extra data needs to be moved to the following column.
With the example I have provided, you will see that after running the macro, cell B2 has 18 pieces of information. I need to expand the macro so B2 contains 5 pieces, C2 contains 5 pieces, D2 contains 5 pieces, etc.
I want to use the SumIf function to sum cells when other cells begin with certain characters.
I've toyed with a few ideas of how this could work, but i don't know how to specify that the cells need to begin with certain characters. The cells that would be the criteria and the ones that would be summed come out of an Oracle database (and i have no control over the way they're pulled out - yet) so the beginning characters are connected to extremely unique information, so i dont want that to be included in the if part, for obvious reasons.
These names are in Column A. I want to split the first and last name into Column A and Column B of my spreadsheet. I Usually copy row 1 to a txt file then import with "space" as my delimiter. I basically want an automated method of doing this.
I would like to do a text split for the name only in cells where contains the word "Name". For example: Name A&A Enterprize
Text split function for it is =MID(A1,FIND(" ",A1)+1,255) so it only recognizes A&A Enterprize.
How would I add an IF, Then function (If the any cell contains the word Name, apply the text split function, for cells don't have the word Name, just leave it blank) if i have to do this for a large data file so i dont have to copy this function for every cell that contains the word Name.
I have data that I've converted from a different source, and the formatting doesn't always come out as I'd like it. For example, I have data that has two different values, and I need to split them into different columns. Is there an easy/quick way to do this?
the question: i'd like to split a large cell in to smaller, fixed-size cells (columns) by a standard formula.
example: consider cell A1 = 'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ' i'd like a formula that created B1 = 'ABCDE' C1 = 'FGHIJ' D1 = 'KLMNO', etc
I used =Left (A1, 5) and got A1 = 'ABCDE' easily enough. I'm stumped at coming up with a formula that provides the next 5, and the next 5, etc.
the setup: if you want to know why i really need to solve the question i'm asking rather than using the split cell function:
i have a large set of data from a vendor. ideally, this worksheet will be used for other vendors that submit data similarly.
the script i'm writing takes a specific format--which i can't logically hold the vendors to. so, my specific formatting is on one sheet, referencing the data from each vendor on another sheet.
there is one field of data from vendors that is large ( >4000 characters, typically). however, this field makes my SQL server puke. i need to break this field down in to chunks of 1000 characters, and then re-concatenate after it leaves SQL to its final destination.
because i want to use some script automation to reuse this project, i'm reluctant to just use the split cell function to break up the data. rather i'd like to use whatever data is provided, and referentially split it up in my pre-formatted data.
Ihave data in column "B" like bellow & i want split that one cell data to different cells base on space. i mean after each space data should add to next cell ( from column "C" data can split). (formula or macro)
I have many columns in my current spreadsheet but I have two columns that I want to split in to two project names.
Currently I have one column with: Project A/Project B And the second column with the total cost of Project A AND Project B combined
The thing is that I can easily just create a new line but that would mean all the data in the other Cells remain the same and the only two that will be different are the above two columns. I will be maintaining alot of rows so I was hoping I do not have to create two rows for every new item then to merge both rows in reach column every time I have to put in a new Item.
I am hoping to have for example the below
Name Comments Project Cost ------------------------------------------------- Item 1 This item relates Project A $150 to upgrade of Project B $120 SAS system ----------------------------------------------------
Currently I have it as
Name Comments Project Cost ------------------------------------------------- Item 1 This item relates Project A/B $270 to upgrade of SAS system ---------------------------------------------------
I have some data that is imported, it's about 25,000-30,000 characters and 2,300- 3,500 words, it all comes in as one cell, A1, if I do a text to column on it I will loose everything past column IV. Is there anyway a macro can take the data and put each word in a cell by its self starting in A2? The words a have a space between them.
