Formula To Create Name Initials Where Last Name Listed First

Aug 3, 2014

I am looking to create a formula to get the initials of a name, where the the last name is listed first, followed by a comma.
Now, the names could be full names or initials.

So, it could be something like: Smith, John R - result would be JRSSmith, John Robert - result would be JRSSmith, John Robert Michael - result would be JRMS There were similar formulas that I found here, but these only got the last letter of the last name - in this case the following formulas would have resulted (with the above examples) in: JTS or the last example with Michael, JLS.

=UPPER(MID(A1,FIND(" ",SUBSTITUTE(A1," ",REPT(" ",2)))+1,1)&RIGHT(A1)&LEFT(A1))
=UPPER(MID(A1,FIND(" ",A1)+1,1)&RIGHT(A1)&LEFT(A1))

Note: While I am using Excel 2010, there could be users that are still using 2003.

Lookup Query - Occurrences: Create Another Worksheet With The Months Of The Years Listed Down Column

Oct 16, 2008

I have a table that lists the months of the year down from cell A2:A13, and days of the week along row from cell B1:H1. The data in between (cell B2:H13) is pulled through from elsewhere in the workbook and is in number format.

What I basically want to do is create another worksheet with the months of the years listed down column A, and in column B, for each month, I want the first day of the week where the value in the original table is more than zero, and in column C the second day of the week where the value is more than zero. I really hope that makes sense, was quite difficult to explain!

First Name-Last Name To Last Name-First Name Some With Middle Initials

Mar 8, 2008

An application I use at work exports names in a first name-last name format. At this point I have a list of about 315 names in this format. Is there a way I can convert these names to a last name-first name format? I need to export these data on a daily basis, so I'll need to perform this conversion every day. I did a search for this, but didn't find anything.

Counting Initials And Dates

Nov 28, 2009

I'm new to the forums, though I've solved a couple of my problems by lurking here.
I'm currently having a problem with a worksheet I've been working on at work. I'm not very experienced in Exel and have inherited a worksheet that keeps track of the machines we do maintenance on during the year. What I have now is a spreadsheet with columns alternating between initials and date, and rows with the machine names all the way down. It looks similar to this :

Name of machine Initials date initials date initials date initials date etc.
machine 1
machine 2
machine 3
machine 4
...
machine 121

I'd like to keep this format, but we need to keep track of who does what within a certain week, which means I need to count the number of instances of an initial, then compare it with the date in the column next to it, which I don't think would be a problem with just two columns, but I'm having problems wrapping my brain around how to do so with 20-30 columns.
I'm using date ranges in some of my calculation formulas, which I think necessitates the date being in a separate column than the text.

Concatenate Initials And Surnames

Apr 20, 2007

I have 2 columns of Surnames and Initials and I am trying to concatenate an initial (if required) with a surname or return a blank if the cell(s) is empty, in other words in cell AC20 I have a surname Smith and in AG20 an initial A which I only enter into the cell if there are identical surnames but when the cells are blank I wish to return a blank not a zero.

I have tried =IF( COUNTBLANK(AC20:AG20)=2,"",AG20&""&AC20) and =IF(AG20="",AC20,IF(AC20>"",AG20&" "&AC20)) but the first one wont return the initial and the last one works but both return a zero when blank.

Deleting Middle Initials In A Spreadsheet

Sep 8, 2009

I just bought a database and I would say at least 20% of the names in the database have an initial after the first name. I need to have a clean first and last name list. Is there a formula that can delete the initials? I am working on a variable data print project that uses their first name in the message so I cannot have their middle initial.

So like in one example her first name is listed as Susan F. I want it to just be Susan. Another example is T. Jones as a last name, I want it to be just Jones.

Pin / Password For Digital Signatures / Initials In Excel

May 29, 2014

I have QC checklist with a cell at the bottom for the user's initials. We have 8 users, and I would like to create a way that each user can enter their pin and have their initials come up in the cell. Ideally, there would be no way to the other users to know each other's pins or find out in the spreadsheet. Do you think it is do-able using VBA and how they would approach this?

The End Result Is #value! Unless There Is A Food Listed

Jul 7, 2009

I am trying to make up a workbook for a friend for their daily food intake. The formulas were working fine but she was hoping to be able to just enter the food and have the rest of the information automatically entered.

I was having no problem with it using a vlookup formula for the foods and a data validation drop down menu but when it comes to the final formula I am getting a #VALUE! error in that column unless there is a food listed.

I have attached to workbook. If you notice in the Sunday Tab I have the problem but Monday is fine since I have not added the vlookup formula. Is there a way to have it not show anything like in Monday when there is nothing entered?

Get All Combinations Listed In Spreadsheet

Feb 16, 2010

i know by the formula =combin(49,6) how many combination of 6 numbers there are from a available 49 numbers (13983816).

how do i manage to get all combinations listed in a excel spreadsheet? I would want the numbers in individual cells. For example, Row 1 would show 6 numbers individually from A1 - F1.

I do realise that excel does not have enough rows to do this so may have to continue on other sheets.

VLOOKUP Grab The One That Is Listed First

Sep 11, 2008

I do have one issue I need to work on with a VLOOKUP formula.

I have a list of cities and counties that the VLOOKUP goes and looks at to pull information from.

The problem is that when there is a city and county with the same name (Example: Boulder and Boulder County) VLOOKUP always seems to jsut grab the one that is listed first in the list.

When you use the city name of Boulder, VLOOKUP always retruns the information for Boulder County.

Here is my forumula:

=VLOOKUP(qtProjAddress3,'City Mileage and Tax Rates'!A2:C518,2)
Is there something I can add to this formula that will allow it to return the proper city or county when the names are similar?

How To Show Numbers Missing And Listed

Nov 17, 2013

The current method I'm using to get the results I need in Excel are a bit manual and excessive. is a simple all in one formula for what I'm trying to do,

The data is 3 rows. We can also assume the data is in the first three columns starting from A1.

698
885
499

As you can see in the above set from 0 through 9, the numbers that are not listed are 0,1,2,3,7
And As you can see the numbers that are listed are 4,5,6,8,9.

How do I find and show which numbers from 0 - 9 are not in the set.
How do I show the number that are listed in the set Example:
Note: the special characters aren't needed.

698 4,5,6,8,9 --- 0,1,2,3,7
885
499

Note the the evaluation is for every three rows. So the three rows in the example are from a table with 150 rows. Each row begins a new evaluation for the next three.....Example:

698 and the following two starts the next set
885 and the following two starts the next set
499 and the following two starts the next set
and so on ......

VBA- Specs Listed (Send You File)

Apr 9, 2007

I have a project I need to get done, and I've done most of it. But, there are a few things in VBA I'm unfamiliar with, and I was wondering if I could send you the file so you could take a look at it, and see if you're able to do it. This involves VBA. Honestly shouldn't be too too difficult, but something beyond what I can do. I have the specifications listed already, and I am ready to send it to you. Anyone feel comfortable taking a look at it?

Combobox Validation: Only Listed Items Can Be Chosen/Used

Oct 2, 2006

I have a Combobox with it's 'RowSource' set to two columns x 1500 rows on a spreadsheet. The Combobox is set to 'fmMatchEntryComplete'. When the user types in invalid text I get an "Invalid Value Property" error. I would like to validate the Combobox so that the user cannot type text other than available in the list, or not allow for the focus to be taken away away unless the item is a match to the list. At present due to the interaction of other controls on the userform, the only way to clear the error is by pressing the 'Escape key'. I have a button designed to reset the 'RowSource' of the Combobox but even after adding a 'MouseMove' event to this button with code

Dependant Lists Using Text Values Not Listed In Worksheet

May 28, 2009

I have seen in the forums where lists are created by refering to column values in other worksheets.If you create a list by entering text values can you make other lists dependant to those values and can those lists also be made up of text lists?

All the examples I have seen here use lists that exist in some other worksheet

I use lists which use text values directly and not from a worksheet. I'm wondering how to make a secondary/sub list dependant on each value selected so say if text value "A" is selected in list 1 then this only allows the list for "A" to be available for list 2 in its corresponding cell (the next one along)
