I have a column with cells that look like: XYZ - JobABC - Area 1-A. I'd like to split the column into to and have it look like: XYZ <next column> Job ABC - Area 1-A Normally I'd use the text to columns function and "-" as delimiter, however, there are other instances of "-" which I do not want separated. Note that the XYZ can vary in length and therefore fixed width will not work either. I have attached a small sample with the different variations that I could encounter.
I'm prepping this file to be pushed through mail merge. The sheet has 25,213 rows.
Column I contains a long string of character (for the purposes of my project the field is called Subjects) and $ used as delimiters (approx 70 or as few as 1). This column needs to be split apart by $ and the separate Subjects that result from splitting apart by $ needs to be placed on a separate line. Once each Subject is on a separate line, all of the Subjects need to be lined up in Column I, one under another (the obvious result at this point is GREATLY increasing the number of rows in the sheet). Next, all of the data that is contained in each Subject's originating row will be copied to each of newly created rows (without copying over the Subject contained in column I).
After writing this all out, I realize (once again).
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 have one column in a worksheet that I want to split into 2 columns. If there is one "(" in the cell, I want to split at that point, but if there are two "(" 's, I want to split at the second occurrence. I can use the Like operator to identify the cells, but is there a way to specify which delimiter in a sequence of identical delimiters to split at? Here are templates (not actual data) of the two type of cells:
Name1 (ABC) (Name2, Name3) Name4 (Name5, Name6)
For the first, I want to split on the second "(", before Name2, and for the second, I want to split on the first "(", before Name5.
I've got a column of data containing addresses. What I want to do is split the column after certain keywords such as "street", "road", "close" etc and move any words that come after these in the cell into the next cell to the right.
For example, in one cell I might have "54 Burberry Road Finsbury London"... what I want to do is have part of the text remain in the original cell i.e. "54 Burberry Road" and the rest, "Finsbury London", moved to the cell on the right.
Not all cells in the column will match this format so if it doesn't find a keyword, nothing will occur and it will move to the next cell down etc. until it reaches the end of the column.
There are no delimiters (apart from the spaces) between the words.
I haven't figured out all of the keywords that I will need to search for yet but I should be able to extrapolate from something fairly generic.
I have a 2000 row sheet with an address field that contains the apartment number and the address. The text is displayed as unit number, then hyphen and the building/street number for example '101-1234 15th Street'. I'm looking to cut the building number from the cell and paste it into a seperate column. Ideally removing the hyphen completely, so that I have two columns 'unit number' and 'building/street address'.
I need excluding text from a cell and come out with a random number up to 3 numbers. Please see the attached image;
If you notice in column D there is text and a number that starts with a decimal, for example on the first row is .437 the next row is .215 next row is .63 etc... Is there a way to come out with a random number mixing it up to 3 digits and output those number on column "E"? Im only interested in filtering and coming out with the random number i mentioned .437 .215 .63 etc... not the +/-.010in.
There is no right or wrong number, i just need to come out with random number using up to 3 numbers up.
Maybe for .437 three numbers up could be .440 for the next row .215 maybe a number up .216..etc..
Hope there is a way to do this, my excel file is too long to type a number manually.
I have a spreadsheet with a few thousand rows, yeah i know..lol Each one of the rows has contact details for individuals. I have the address for each person in one field with up to four different sections, seperated by tabs. How do I go about seperating each part of the address so it is in a different column? I have tried text to columns, and it only seperates the first portion of the address, seperated by the delimiter 'tab'.
I have the following text, in which I need separated into three columns.
Column A) Company Name Column B) Address Column C) Phone Number
I was thinking perhaps I could replace "-------" to just one "-" and use that delimiter to separate the phone number.
Then Use *** Company Name Here *** --> *Number Variable* and filter the rest..
But I don't see it being able to work.Here is the text I'm looking to format (Mind you there is about 8,000 Records. And, it's all formatted like below. (Company Name, phone number being on different lines and phone number being separated by dash's
I have a macro that imports a report. If the Charge Type in column A is BTOREPLX, I need to prefill the field next to it in column B with the text "REPLX", e.g. "REPLXCDROM". I've attached an example of the report.
My goal is to macro the creation of pivot tables into seperate worksheets based on each particular record in the "Office" (location). Ultimately, I will apply an email macro to send out each pivot table (and source data if necessary) to various recipients. I need to make sure that each recipient of a pivot table is limited to only drill into the detail for their particular "Office" and not able to view other location's information in the Source Data worksheet--is this possible, or do I need to create separate source data worksheets for each Office's pivot table in order to limit the viewing?
Items I need guidance on: Creating a macro to breakout pivot tables into seperate worksheets based on "Office" locationPlease advise on how I can secure Pivot Tables so that the user can only drill into the information originally presented in the pivot table they receive and will not be allowed to view all of the source data. Please find attached a file with my source data and an example of a pivot table for one of the Office locations (Chicago).
I have tried experimenting with LEFT, RIGHT functions. I want to edit a text string using a delimiter. For example: "NOS|NOS". I have a column of 256 rows of such entries, a name; the pipe; a name. I need to be able to strip out one side or the other using that pipe as the delimiter, leaving only "NOS". With 256 rows of items with this format - the length of the text string will vary.
I have a text file, which is been imported to excel sheet. There are 2 fields in the text file. Each field has to be placed in one column. The first field has values with space. Due to this the first field is split into 2 fields and totally 3 columns are imported in the excel sheet. Have set .TextFileSpaceDelimiter=True so that it would split the 2 fields, but since the first field has space in it, it splits into 3 fields. Is their any alternate way to obtain the above?
I have a script to import all the data in a text file into an excel sheet. However, the data that is imported are in the first column of every row.
for e.g. 123454566788329929201012827192019128278111111111abc213123123123123
there is no comma nor / to separate the string of alphanumerics is there any vba script that i can incorporate to separate the first 3 digit in the first column then 5 digit in the second column then 7 digit in the 3rd columns and etc.
I do receive invoices from my vendors. They send me an invoice in PDF formate. I am using able2extract software to conver the PDF to excel. It is working great but most of the times my vendors enters the items/Case in the description field. Like the example below:
"Bajri Rotla 11 oz.(24)"
I would like to place a "," in between the last character and begining of the first number. In the above case it will be after "a" (in Rotla) and before "1" in (11). If I can do this then I can apply texttocolumn from excel and use "," as delimiter and separate item name from size and case/Pack. Then can use another "Texttocolumn" and separate size and case/pack. If there is a VBA code that can be written for this it would make my life a whole lot easier.
Following are 3 images that I have copied from actual data.
1. Original PDF invoice data that I receive from my Vendor
2. Image of the excel file before formating. This is the format from "Able2Extract" (3rd party software that I use to convert PDF to excel. Works great!!
3. Converted Excel data sheet. This is the way I want to format the data.
I am having a problem reading from a file. I am working with some old code. I am reading information in from a txt file. The information on the txt file is separated by commas on each line. My question is, how can I read in for example, the third section on the first line. By section I mean...
line 1: section1, section2, section3, section4, section5
I want to read section3 into a string variable. If anyone can help me please post. I am having the hardest time finding this online.
I frequently review DAT files. These DAT files use a variety of characters as delimiters. I'm trying to devise a macro that will perform a text-to-column operation, using the content of a specified cell as the delimiter.
Here's my code, which uses - (ASCII 0254) as a delimiter:
Code: With Sheet1 Range("A1", ActiveCell.End(xlDown)).Select Do
Instead of having the delimiter hard-coded, I'd like my macro to use whatever character I enter into Sheet3.Range("i5") as a delimiter. That way, I can easily change my delimiter character as necessary.
