Search And Replace Special Characters

Oct 14, 2009

I have a worksheet that I produced from optical character recognition, and there are a lot of funky characters that I need to get rid of. One is a line break or carraige return (I assume it's the same character that I could insert by entering ALT+ENTER). How do I search for this special character to replace it? How do I identify what that invisible character is?

Retaining Formatting And Special Characters

Sep 9, 2007

I have created a multiple choice quiz maker that randomizes the questions and responses. This means that the quiz questions/responses must be copied and pasted each time a new quiz is generated. But in doing so, Excel loses formatting (such as super and sub scripting) and some special characters (like pi, alpha, the degree symbol).

Is there a way to get such things to copy properly from cell to cell, sheet to sheet, using Excel?

Some Cells Won't Acknowledge Special Characters

May 31, 2006

I am using Excel 2002 SP3. I have a multiple worksheet workbook and am using links between some cells so as to keep the updating down to a minimum. Typically I can enter [code]=' Storage '!E70[code] to transfer the contents of one cell in the ' Storage ' worksheet to the cell I want the data in and I get the value of that worksheet/cell. But sometimes all I get is the data I entered: ie ='Storage '!E70. Is there some for cell format problem that prevents this from happening?

Logical Test For Special Characters

May 17, 2007

I have data in column A. The data contains a name, an underscore and initial/s. For example: rebecca_rt, john_j, etc... I'm trying to pull only the characters to the right of the underscore. I played around with the below formula that I found under a similar question thread. But, it doesn't quite work. As it is now, it returns ecca_rt when I just want rt. I'm sure this is probably really close =IF(ISERROR( FIND("_",A1)),A1,RIGHT(A1,FIND("_",A1)-1))

Replacing Special Characters When Importing Text

Jun 18, 2009

I have inherited a spreadsheet that will prompt the user for a text file to import and it will split each line into different cells based on column widths. The problem is that one field can contain non-printable characters that are causing the macro to split the data into 2 lines.

I think one of the special characters is a new paragraph but there could be others.

I need help with replacing these special characters with a space prior to spliting the line into an array.

Workaround For Special Characters In Named Range Names

Mar 20, 2008

I am aware that special characters such as -,(,),[,] are not permitted in named ranges (for lists), but is there a workaround for this? I have a lot of dependent lists that need to access names that contain either a - or () or both. I could simply remove the -'s or ()'s using find/replace, but they are required, as they're part of the name. I am aware of this method http://www.contextures.com/xlDataVal02.html#Illegal but I have a lot of dependent lists across a sheet, and a VLOOKUP isn't going to work. If there isn't a workaround, are there any allowed characters I could use to replace the -'s and ()'s?

Trim Special Characters In Cell To Be To Split Data Into Columns?

Apr 9, 2014

This formula I want to apply it in another workbook. It split in different columns the content of a cell.

The formula is below:

[Code] .....

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.

Excel 2003 :: How To Remove Characters To The Right Of Last Occurrence Of Special Character

Mar 30, 2011

I have a column of text where I need to remove all the characters to the right of the last occurance of a special character.

I think a process like reading from right to left, look for the first occurance of the special character, and return the characters to the left of this position.

If I can determine the position of the last occurance of the special character, I could use the LEFT function.

The SEARCH function is close. It finds the position of the first occurance of text inside text but it reads from left to right. I need to read from right to left.

Another approach is to examine each character one by one from right to left. If the character is not the special character, delete it. When the character is the special character, delete it and stop the process.

There is no consistency in the text. The total lengths vary. The number of times the special character occurs in the text vary. The number of characters to the right or left of the last special character vary.

I much prefer not to have the solution be some VBA because I need to share it with others who are even less capable than I am. We are using Excel 2003.

Data Validation / Drop Down Menu With Paste Special

Jan 18, 2009

I know how to use the copy and paste special to copy a formula from one row down many rows in that same column. When I do this the formula will automatically change by 1 number {such as =IF(ISBLANK(C5),"",VLOOKUP($C5,Sheet1! $B$3:D4891,3,FALSE)) then when I click on copy and pasted special each following row will change by one number ---- to =IF(ISBLANK(C6),"",VLOOKUP($C6,Sheet1!$B$3:D4892,3,FALSE))

Can this also be done if the row you want to copy and paste is a row with data validation / a drop down menu? I simply tried using the same process for a row that has data validation the row with the validation has for the source =INDIRECT($B$5)

Is there a way to copy this down about 20 rows and have the ($B$5) change in each row by one number {such as ($B$6 THEN $B$7, ETC...) Or do I just have to do the whole data validation process for each row?

Copy Paste Special As Values Based On Validation Cell Contents

Jan 27, 2007

Need VBA macro that will copy & paste (Special > AS VALUES) from one of two (Data A & B) sheets based on the contents of a validation cell ($D$4) in a third (Report) sheet? The destination starting cell would be $F$11. ALSO - I'd like to have the Named Ranges "DataAExtract" & "DataBExtract" used in the code (for the COPY region) so I can see an example of how to reflect my actual named ranges in my working file.

The reason for doing this is that the "c.Characters...." lines in my conditional formatting macros (attached) are not working on cells containing formula output (in my working file the Report page is all populated by VLOOKUP results), but the macros run fine on hard-coded values. In my attached workbook, I'd like to have the "NEW" macro for the copy & paste step fire first in the sequence of macros running after the FORM button-click (control located in cell $D$5 of the Report sheet), whether that's by writing a new macro and calling mine before the new one ends, OR by consolidating all of my macros plus the new one into one smooth progression.

With this low-tech approach I can get updated VALUES into the report area once the user selects a data source and a customer on the report sheet. The COPY ranges in my working spreadsheet will update based on the selections made in the report page. I tried recording a macro and then modifying the recorded code to add the "If > Then" functionality I'm looking for, but I'm pretty green when it comes to VBA code and syntax.

Data Validation - Characters In Drop Down

Nov 17, 2008

I have a list for the user to enter in creditor name, balance, monthly payment and interest rate. In the credior name portion, I have used a Data Validation List (drop down menu of bank names) for the user to choose from.

Later on... The user types in the customers ACTUAL bank acount that they will be making payments from.

If the user types in a bank that is the same as one from the drop down list earlier on, I would like a dialog box to come up with further instructions.

Dependant Drop Down Validation With Illegal Characters

Data Validation - Cell Only Displaying First 4 Characters Of Listbox

Jun 22, 2006

Is there a way with "Data Validation" where the data that shows on the drop down box, when selected, only displays the first four characters on the cell. For eg In a worksheet, Row A1, A2 etc has got data validation settings whereby the value to be input in those cells comes from a list. The list looks something like this: 3000= Staff, 3001=Parking, 3200=Retail.

If I want to select for row A1 from the listbox - "3000=Staff" , what do I need to do to have only the value "3000" show up in cell A1 and not "3000=staff". The reason I only need the numbers to show up is because that will in turn be used in my vlookup function. The reason I am showing "staff, Parking, Retail" in my listbox is to give users additional information as a guidance to choose the correct code for those cells.

Using Data Validation To Limit Entry Of Number Of Characters In A Cell

Jan 24, 2014

When you want to use Data Validation to limit the entry of the number of characters to a cell does this apply only to the cell that you are entering the characters or can it also apply to a cell that contains a LEN(A1) formula, for instance? Also,does the Data Validation limitation function includes spaces as well? Will the message appear while you are entering the characters (when it has reached the limit) or will it wait until you have hit Enter?
