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.
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 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.
Part I... I got the answer 1987, and now I want Excel to take the numbers out and display... 1 in one box then i set + in the next, then 9 in the 3ed. box, next box +, then 8, then +, then 7 in the last so that i can have Excel make a SUM of it all to 25.
How do I split 1987 and put the numbers in different boxes?
Part II... I want to make A=1 B=2... all the way up to 9, then start over again with J=1 K=2... up to 9 again and then over again.
So that if I write my name it comes out as a value of 14 (Odd = O=6 D=4 D=4 =14)
(AJSØ=1 BKTÅ=2 CLU=3 DMV=4 ENW=5 FOX=6 GPY=7 HQZ=8 IRÆ=9, It's the Norwegian alphabet, that's why there are some extra letters)
So how do I set up my Excel so that is ANY name is typed in I can get it out into a number from the values assign?
i have wordlists which i would like to enhance through texts. For that purpose i need a macro which reads a text and splitts it into words and put the words into three columns. Lets assume the column where the words are supposed to be put is columns A,C and E. The column A should contain single words containing no spaces from Text, column C should contain compound words which have one space between them and in column E those compounds which have two spaces. Now i will put my existing wordlist in column G before i start splitting texts. The macro should put only those words from text into column A,C and E which dont already exist in columns A,B,C,D,E,F and G. In Column B i will place the corrected or checked words from column A. In column D i will type the corrections and checked versions of those compunds existing in column C. And the column F will contain the compound words which are corrected and checked from Column E.
Column A--> single words splitted from text through macro (containing no spaces) Column B--> corrected and checked versions of words from column A through user Column C--> compound words containing one space splitted from text through macro (for example:"etwas möchten" or "do something") Column D-->corrected version of C through user Column E-->compound words containing two space splitted from text through macro (for example:"sich uerberzeugen lassen" or "down in dumps") Column F-->corrected E Column G--> existing dictionary wordlist through user
Signes like ".", ":",";", "/" or quotation signe itself should be seen as seperator. And the words or compounds splitted from the text should not contain these signs.
The text will be put in another sheet in the same excel file. Lets call that sheet "text". The macro should search for words through whole sheet ignoring empty cells or columns.
None of the columns should be filtered or ordered. The columns shound not be deleted as well. That way the user wont have to correct the same word each time cus the corrected as well as the original words will be there.
A thread with similar purpose was made sent by AdamDay as well, where rylo has posted a good solution already.
I have huge columns of data that can only be 30 characters long. I want to use a formula to split the column into two. The original column will have a character limit of 30, and should not cut words in half. If the Length will be more than 30 while including the entire last word of the cell, that word should be the first displayed in adjacent cell in the 2nd column.
The 2nd column can be any length.
I usually use a Text to Columns method, but dont know how to make it not cut off the words.
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 ---------------------------------------------------
REPLACE ENGINE OIL & FILTER, VEHICLE INSPECTION, FILL FLUIDS RESET THE OIL REPLACEMENT REMINDER LIGHT. (blank row ) (blank row ) E
I have an excel file with many columns containing information at the end of each column like this.
It lists car verbage, then 2 blank cells are required , followed by an E.
I was wondering if a macro could be used to where it looks at a column, finds where the verbage ends, and automatically inserts 2 blank cells below it followed by an E. In other words it needs to make sure only 2 blank cells are after the verbage and an e should follow in the cell below. If the column has 3 blank cells below the verbage it should fix it and add the E at the appropriate space.
I am receiving a new report from an external system. Unfortunate the system delivers many information within one cell, and it is not possible to reconfigure. These information are separate by a semi-colon or a semi-colon + space. separate the information in separate cells?
I have a spreadsheet that I have to extract from a web based report at work. The problem is that the column that contains the department name also contains the department code in brackets. For example cell A2 will have: (DE) Department A and cell A3 may be (DEPT) Department B.
Now as seen in the example above a code can range from 2 to 4 letters. I wondered if there was a way in code that would search for the ')' character and copy that to the M column and then copy the department name into the N column. So M2 would have 'DE' and column N2 will have 'Department A'.
Also in column G contains the grade name and grade point which are separated by a '/' I would like this to be copied to 2 separate cells say O2 and P2 and so on.
I know this can be done by a formula but I have to do this every month and it would be nice to just click a button to run a macro in my personal.xls file.
The row number various and are usually several thousand. I have attached a sample spreadsheet that only contains 4 rows of data.
I need to make sure that splited cells do not replace content of other cells. For example, if A1 has "SDR232, SDR634", this code will split them and put A1 to be "SDR232" and A2 to be "SDR634". BUT what it does is that it actually replaces whatever I have in A2. Is ther anyway to avoid replacing the content of A2?
Sub tst() Dim X As Variant X = Split(Range("A1").Value, ",") Range("A1").Resize(UBound(X) - LBound(X) + 1).Value = Application.Transpose(X) End Sub
What I got going on is a program I use for reporting is shooting out information.. while most of the information it sends to an excel workbook is sectioned by cell, there is a good chunk of information that's dumped into 1 cell. Is there a macro, or something, I can do to separate the information in this single cell, into separate cells? Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;Here is an example of the report. You'll notice a bunch of information in the 'Description' section. What I want to be able to do is run a macro that will seperate the 'Item Number', 'URL', 'Serial Number', 'Model Number', and 'Details' information into seperate cells.
I have a column with rows from 41:254, the first cell contains a word, and the next is blank, and this repeats the whole way down.
a previous macro i run changes one of the cells in the range (one of the ones containing a word) to a number value, i want to write a further macro to select this cell that has now changed. when it changes it will be the only cell in the range with a number in.
I have a mass of data which look something like this:
and I require the ranges of reference numbers to be listed in a column one above the other, which requires inserting new rows. I also need the date & description columns copied down into the newly inserted rows.
So basically for example I would want the top row to now read:
and then apply the same procedure to the other ranges below this.
Here's my problem. I have a cell where there are many data strings seperated by ",". Each data string has a seperate value of its own like for e.g: A2: aa,ab,ac
String Value aa 1 ab 1 ac 3
What I want it accomplish is that, split the A2 cell into the different data string entities seperated by ",", then get the corresponding value of each of the data string entity, and to take the average of all the values of the different data string entities.
