Trim Macro: Trim All Of The Data From Rows 2:30 Removing Any Trailing Spaces After The Last Word In Each Cell
Apr 25, 2007
I have come up with this to Trim all of the data from rows 2:30 removing any trailing spaces after the last word in each cell. The macro takes a couple of minutes to run have I got something wrong that is making it run slowly or does the Trim process just take longer?
Dim myRange As Range
Dim myRow As Range
Set myRange = Range("2:30")
If myRange Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
myRange.Replace What:=Chr(160), Replacement:=Chr(32), _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False
For Each myRow In myRange.Columns
If Application. CountA(myRow) > 0 Then
myRow.TextToColumns Destination:=myRow(1), _
DataType:=xlFixedWidth, FieldInfo:=Array(0, 1)
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Suppose I have a list (mine is several thousand lines) with city names. In this list some has manually input some names with double spaces between multiple word names -- Example (using dashes to represent spaces in this case):
I know about the function TRIM, but that only works at the start or end, I need something simple to trim the extra space between two words.
My V-lookups are not working. I have data with extra spaces before or after the word. The table I am looking up does not have extra spaces. I'm trying to to a TRIM(data with spaces) and then copy and paste the values so that the spaces go away and the TRIM is not taking my spaces out.
I've spent way too much time trying to figure out this simple thing. Doh! I have a text string that may have one or more CR and/or LF characters on the right. Unfortunately, RTrim doesn't remove CR/LF characters.
Is there an easy way to do something similar to the following that will remove the CR/LF characters?
On a regular basis I have to upload cost to our order system. These cost are sent to me by the suppliers, and the part numbers have to match exactly, (from the excel sheet to the order system), or else the cost won't upload.
I have found that in some of my upload files there is a space, or sometimes several spaces, at the end of the part number. These spaces will screw up the upload. I alwyas use the "Replace" option to replace spaces with nothing, and that usually works.
In the attached sample file, there are 3 part numbers with a space at the end of the part number. I tried using the replace option. That didn't work. I also tried using the =TRIM() formula and the =CLEAN() formula, and neither of those removed the spaces. Why can't I remove the spaces from the end of these part numbers?
I am working with a spreadsheet and rather new to be VBA. How do I select a range that only has data. I currently have the following macro, but when I run it, it checks every cell in the active worksheet which cause the application to hang. I would like it to automatically select only cells that have data in them ignoring all empty cells. I need this to be an automatically process running without the user selecting a range of data.
I need your guys expertise in the following formula. I'm applying the following to a large range of data that varies in lenght,however all of the data has a 1Y or 2Y at the end of it. I need to remove it from the data into a new column. Currently I'm using =trim(mid(A2,1,30) how can I change my formula to obtain my results?
I'm in need of some VBA code (to be included in a Macro) that will automatically use the TRIM function for all cells in a whole column and that will then replace the values in that column with the resulting TRIM values. I have a LOT of individual files with varying #'s of records in them, so a way that will address all of them (all the cells in the specified column due to varying #'s of records) would be best.
I have an Excel file with several worksheets and each of those worksheets has over 600 rows (a list of employees) and above or under 30 columns. Most of cells have trailing spaces in them and they vary in length. For example:
B5: "Jacobson " C5: "firstname.lastname@example.org " (Seems like it's not allowing me to post long gaps between the last letters and the "
I'm aware of the TRIM function and know that I could at least get a column or a few copied with the spaces removed. However, it would just take so much time. What would be the most efficient way of getting rid of all the trailing spaces in all the cells in all the columns in all the worksheets?
This formula I want to apply it in another workbook. It split in different columns the content of a cell.
The formula is below:
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.
* 5 Extravagant Mak (nz) (100) Need the number plus a dot then space then the name, then minus everything after the name, so this would now read 5. Extravagant Mak thats 5dot space Extravagant Mak * 11 Frisbee (100) This one would become 11. Frisbee thats 11dot space Frisbee
I'm trying to make up a sheet that will be able to cope with users pasting in data from other sources. I thought simply running a TRIM function on any data entered in the target cell would be enough, but I've realized that many of the "space" looking characters are not really spaces and don't get trimmed. I've searched around here, but can't find a definitive answer... What can I use in VBA to trim anything that isn't a-z or 0-9 from around data that's entered or pasted in?
I have column headings that come in through a file upload and for some reason some of the column headings(which are in cells in row1) have extra spaces in the middle of them and at the end of the word. This messes up some of my later coding when trying to find specific header names.
Example: "Location " - has extra 2 spaces at end, should be "Location" "Read (Only)" - has 3 spaces in middle, should be "Read (Only)"
I came up with this piece of code to quickly correct the bad headers by Trim()'g the contents of each cell, but it's error'g out & not sure how to fix it:
With Range("A1:A24") .Value = Trim(.Value) End With It errors of course on the '.Value' line.
Any easy way to remove all spaces from a cell, both leading and trailing? I find it hard to believe that Excel doesn't have this functionality. I don't particulary want to write a VBA script since I have never done it but if that's the only way, I'd love to know how to write it. I have looked everywhere but obviously not in the right places.
Assume I filled some cells of a worksheet (in Excel 2007).
Now I place the cursor in one of the cells and dragged the cursor to the right side. As a result more and more empty columns are automatically added at the right side even I do not enter something. Similarly rows are added at the bottom when cursor is dragged downwards.
Correspondingly the horizontal (and vertical) slider shrinks because the dimensions of the matrix grows.
Is there a menu/function which let me do the opposite?
Something like a trim/shrink function which cuts/deletes all empty columns beginning from the right side resp. rows from the bottom?
