# Extracting Numbers With The Same Word In Diferrent Position

Aug 16, 2009

my new payoff worksheet and then this small bug appears and my excitement like "poof"(gone)!.

with this code --> =if(search("ins",i27,),LOOKUP(99^99,--("0"&MID(I27,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},I27&"0123456789")),ROW(\$1:\$10000))))+0

i can get the value if the word contains "ins" like this --> "Ins 723.00" return 723.00 which is correct, and then i've encountered a word which is like"723.00 Ins", and martin gave me the code to get from both sides which is this one --> =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Ins",A1)),LOOKUP(99^99,--("0"&MID(A1,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"0123456789")),ROW(\$1:\$10000))))+0,"") . Work perfectly. and my big problem is that the word Ins 723.00 means Insurance and the 723.00 means Inspection, so it means they're different. and it means I cant use martin's code with this.

So is there any way i can get only the value if the word Ins is in the right side of the amount and also the code if the value is in the left side of the amount. I need two formula for this.

## Pasting Data Into Word At Current Cursor Position

Jun 22, 2009

The user has multiple Excel documents available [which all contain this macro, as they were generated from the same template by a third-party software (LabView)].

The user is already working on a Word document, typing text until he decides that he wants to add some information from one of the Excel sheets. To do this, he changes to Excel, clicks on the button running the script, and the required information is pasted into the Word document at the present cursor position.

## Extracting The First Word

Aug 8, 2007

How do I extract the first word of a cell contents?

For example, cell A1 has "John Smith"
I want cell B1 just to show "John"

Obviously, the first word would be of varying lengths, so I'm guessing the formula would need to find the space.

## Extracting Word From Sentence

Dec 16, 2011

I have a huge collection of data where i need to extract out the lines that contain "hsbc" or "hbio"

E.g.
1) N0253 HBIO Corporate
2) N0082 HSBC Bank USA National Association

Basically, this data is in range C1:C500 and i need to place it into buckets so i.e. if the word contains HSBC then find out how many days it took to service, where "days to service" is in column AG

I can run the sumproduct....

## Extracting Word Coming After Number

May 14, 2014

I have a column with codes coming after a # symbol and want to extract just the code from the cell. The code could be 2 or 4 characters in length. Some examples:

#AA abcdef

From this I would want the formula to return #AA.

#ABCD qwerty

From this, I would want the formula to return #ABCD.

The #Code should but may not always be the first word in the cell, so it needs to find the # symbol and then take the next x characters until a space is found. Note that the reason code may be the only text in the field, so a space may not be there at all. For instance,

#RR

Should just return the #RR.

Edit: This actually has become more complex now. The cell could be

#AA{text}

And for that, I would just want the #AA.

The formula would need to begin at the # and return just the next x capital letters.

## Extracting Numbers From Alphanumeric Strings (unite The X Amount Of Numbers)

Aug 16, 2008

Is there a way either by VBA or manually (preferably both, if possible) to actually unite the X amount of numbers that are in a cell given the contents is alphanumeric? I'll give you the following examples to see if you can understand what I' referring to?

DATA output should be
asd67,h876 --------> 67876
2,3,ujdj5&34 -------> 23534
909k86m34 --------> 9098634

## Extracting Text From Cell Without Word Summary

I know how to do this on an individual basis, but as there is a long list and different number of letters in each one.

## Extracting Numbers From Alphanumeric Strings (strip Numbers?)

Aug 15, 2008

I import data from another program in order to evaluate it. Unfortunately, one of the fields I need contains copyright data, however, it has been very inconsistently entered into the database. For example, sometimes the data appears "c1999." or "-1999" or "" or "[1999]" or even "19?" and also sometimes "1999, 1990" and many other variations on that. I discovered the link in the excel help file about extracting numbers from alphanumeric strings, but my situation is still too variable for it to apply; that file didn't take into account that alphanumeric strings don't always lump numbers and letters together. I was able to correct a few things, but my command of excel isn't knowledgeable enough to really come up with something effective.

Some ideas I had that I don't know how to implement: is there a way to strip non-numerical characters from an alphanumeric string? (I've been doing some find/replaces to get rid of some of it, but that is obviously not very efficient when I have to repeat this process daily.) Perhaps then I could just detect the first 4 numbers of the string somehow. However, that doesn't solve the problem of when a wild card is used as in "199?" or "20?" etc.

Bottom line, I just need to grab the first four numbers that appear in the string (but NOT additional numbers that occur after a wild card or a space if the year was not completed in 4 numbers; in that case I'd just be happy with a null value).

I've been doing this with a formula so far. My only experience with macros has been in simply recording them, not actually writing them, but I'll give anything a try.

## Find The Position Out Of Played Numbers

Mar 18, 2009

I have selected numbers to play in the table shown above from cell G2:AD7 and celebrated draw result numbers are shown in cells A3:F7

Now, suppose I want to play the numbers, which are in cell G2:AD2 and the draw-celebrated numbers are shown in the cell A3:F3.

Now I want to check cells A3:F3 with G2:AD2 and want to know in which position are the celebrated draw matched with the numbers played.

In this case the result in AE2 will be 3; 22 that means only two numbers are matched with the played numbers. Those numbers are the number ‘6’ which is in the position 3 counting from G2 and number ‘48’ which is in the position 22 counting from G2 again.

The result must be shown in column AE for all the draws as shown in the table above.

## Extracting Numbers From Text

Jun 13, 2009

I need to separate text information from a cell into 3 columns (W,9-8). The first letter I know how to extract. The problem is to extract the number in the middle (1 or 2 digit) between "," and "-" and also the last number. For the last number I could use right() function but the problem is that number could be 1 or 2 digits so I can not specify in advance so formula would have to extract the last number till "-". Anyone knows how to do this?

## Extracting Numbers From A Sentence

Mar 18, 2007

I play an online browser game and I've made a spreadsheet for tracking various aspects of the game.

I do okay with the simple formulas and can haphazardly get excel to do what I want it to do. But for a few things I want it to do, I've run into a wall...

Here is the first one:

In the game, I receive reports like this:

One of your fleets (Large Cargo:5 ) returns from [2:100:9] to Planet [2:101:13] . The fleet is delivering 58.679 Metal, 28.750 Crystal and 11.521 Deuterium.

I want to be able to copy that, and past it into A1. Easy enough, but here's the tricky part. I want excel to be able to automatically extract the numbers in front of metal, crystal, and deuterium into their own separate fieilds. So that in this instance B1 would display 58,670, C1 would display 28,750, and D1 would display 11,521.

The amounts can vary anywhere from 1 to 9,999,999 (but there will be no negative numbers), and in some cases the number would end in 0 (I've seen where that makes a difference in some formulas for some reason).

If it makes it easier, the copy/paste could be reduced to:

The fleet is delivering 58.679 Metal, 28.750 Crystal and 11.521 Deuterium.

## Extracting Certain Numbers From String

Feb 6, 2009

I have not managed to find exactly what I am looking for so far..

I have cells with a mix of numbers and strings and I would like to extract certain numbers only.

I.E.
123a bcd8
acbd 1234e

I would like to only extract the first instance of numbers - so in example 1 - 123 and in example 2 - 1234. I have found various methods of extracting all numbers such as:

Function ExtractNums(r As String) As String
'Creates and returns a reference for a regular expression object
With CreateObject("vbscript.regexp")
'Sets the pattern to be non-digits
.Pattern = "D"
'We want to find all matching non-digits
.Global = True
'Replace all non-digits with an empty string and return this value for the function
ExtractNums = .Replace(r, "")
End With
End Function

## Extracting Numbers And Text

Mar 6, 2009

I need help extracting numbers from text. In column A, I have a list containing entries like this:

0005 Nurseries — propagation and cultivation of nursery stock
0016 Orchards — citrus and deciduous fruits
0034(1) Poultry Raising
0034(2) Sheep Raising and Hog Farms
0035 Florists — cultivating or gardening

The list goes on for about 800 rows.

In column J, I have this forumula:

{=LEFT(A1,MATCH(2,1/ISNUMBER(MID(A1,ROW(A2:A100)-ROW(A1),1)*1)))}
It works great, except the result includes the left parenthesis: for example, J3 = "0034(1". Is there a way to obtain just the numeric value ("00341")?

Also, is there another formula I can use in column K that will do the opposite and extract only the text? For example: K1 = "Nurseries — propagation and cultivation of nursery stock" and K3 = "Poultry Raising".

## Extracting 3 Highest Numbers

Aug 1, 2009

I came up with a way to extract entire row corresponding to the highest number in L column and to post it in the different sheet.

I have 2 issues to solve though.

1. I need to extract only 13 ranges corresponding to the highest number in L column - ( A through M) - not entire row.

2. I need to do the same with the second and the third highest numbers of the same column L.

This is what I have so far:

Sub extract()
Dim first As Range
Set first = Range("L" & WorksheetFunction.Match(WorksheetFunction.Max(Columns("L")), Columns("L"), 0))
first.EntireRow.Select
Selection.Copy
Sheets("Result").Select
Range("A1").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats, Operation:=xlNone, _
SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
End Sub
