I just have a grid with a bunch of numbers listed and they all have one extra space at the end of the number. I have another tab with the same numbers but they do not have that extra space. I am using a vlookup formula and it is not recognizing the numbers because of the extra space. Is there some way to get rid of the extra space with a formula instead of going through job by job?
This is a delima I cannot figure out. I had to create passwords for a website we are building. I have 3000 employee numbers has to be used. So what i did was took the first initial and middle initial and last initial and first 5 of the ID number. I did a comma delimiter to obtain all of the letters and numbers. example: ABC12345
My problem is none of the passwords work because when I imported the letters and numbers into the sheet it looks just like the above. However on review I cut and pasted back to notepad and the data looks like this:
"A B C 12345"
So its adding a tab in the password thats thats a problem, How do I remove this extra white space between each comma delimited digit? without having to manually delete it ?
i am trying to remove the unknown character and extra space from the name. Though i use formula as trim or proper(trim), it is not removing the Unknown character / extra space. I have attached the few name as sample. Formula to remove these Unknown character / extra space, double space, special character from selected cell?
I have an excel spreadsheet with Extra columns that have no data in them. I want to delete this columns so that there is no horizontal scroll, but highlighting and right-clicking and choosing delete isn't working. Not sure why. How can I delete?
The 306% cell has (B2+B3+B4)/7.5 in it to get that value. I need to dump any access percentage above 100% into the next quarters goal. so 2nd should be 100 and 3rd should be 100 and 4th should be 6.67.
I have some excel files that contain data when I'VE finished entering data >> I saved it when I open the file >>> I FIND THE DATA INTACT .. NO PROBLEM BUT I FIND ALOT OF EMPTY CELLS THAT ARE USELESS I WANT TO DELETE THESE EXTRA EMPTY CELLS... SO WHEN I OPEN THE FILE I CAN FIND ONLY the data .
I am using Excel 2002 and have had a couple of files that seem to have become corrupted recently. When I try to open the files there is nothing there, no cells just a grey space where the cells should be. When I try to close Excel it asks me if I want to save changes when no changes have been made.
I had not made any changes to the sheets prior to this happening so am struggling to work out what is going on.
I recently got this task by my work employer to transfer information from several non-organized Excel-documents into one, complete and organized one.
The thing I have to organize right now is a column with thousands of zipcodes and zones in one single cell, only separated by spaces, like this:
Zipcode Zone 115 54 Gothenburg 443 67 Skane
What I want to do is instead of having to go through 24h of braindead control/paste is to use some easy and fast function or script that could pull out the last piece of string of information in every cell in that column into its own separate cell.
Although I am using Open Office Calc/Gnumeric on Ubuntu Dapper, if a script is necessary and only work with Excel on Windows/Mac, that is no big problem for me to solve. So please, any suggestion is welcome.
I will attatch two examples for you to look at, to get the whole picture.
I need to delete a leading space from multiple cells, 200 or more. The leading space is in front of text that is often more than one word so I can't just copy into Word and do a find and replace on the spaces.
I looked in many places and found out about the Trim function but when I tried it, it didn't work for me. I created a column next to the column that I want to remove the leading spaces from.
Then I put =TRIM(B2) in the first cell, =TRIM (B3) in the next one, etc. But all it did was put the exact same thing as before (with the leading space still in it) in that column?
I have many sheets in my workbook with many filled or unfilled cells... I want that any cell in my whole workbook should be filled with " " ie a space if it is currently blank (ie don't touch the cells which have some data) and as there are many cells in a sheet .. I don't want to fill them with spaces as the file size will increase... I just want to do this for cells A-1 to AB-200.
What is the way of doing this with a formula or programming ie without macros... (or is macro the only way?) What if I just want to do this to a sheet and not to the whole workbook.
I am trying to split a string into separate cells. I have managed to generate the formula for the description and first dlr value in the string but I am have trouble figuring out how to build functions for the rest of the string.
The 1st set is in a column. Nice & tidy all twelve characters in length & alpanumeric
zx0123123123 zz0123123124 zy0123123129
The second set is a mess, taken from a lotus notes inbox from the subject line off an email, eg. there Blah blah zz0123123124 etc etc. What I want to do is do a reconcilliation between the two with a lookup, but have no idea which route to go down to get round the messy data. I have been using =IF(ISNA(MATCH(A1,'[spreadsheet to lookup to.xls]sheet1'!$A:$A,0))," No match"," Match") but here the data is clean. I have searched teh forum ;o) DaveH & found something about > Instr() but this can't be used in formulas..
