separating text into separate columns
3 replies , 1/19/2004, 9:06:07 PM
I'm new to Excel and working on a document with addresses in it. However, the first name and last name of the people are within the same column. So my question is: how do you separate text into separate columns without having to delete it? For example, my text currently looks like this: "Jones, James" but I want Jones to be in a separate column (titled "LAST") and James (titled "FIRST") to be in a separate column. Help? Thanks!

Separating a comma separated list
3 replies , 9/27/2007, 10:02:46 AM
Not having a great deal of experience with macros, I thought I might see if I could pick the brains of the group. I have to essentially break out a comma separated text string in a single cell into a vertical list, with a reference number thrown in for good measure. Example. Data I have: A B 1 NUMBER RESOURCE 2 101 Smith John,Jones Adam,Brown Philip,Greene Thomas 3 102 Smith John,Jackson Arthur Needs to look like: A B 1 NUMBER RESOURCE 2 101 Smith John 3 101 Jones Adam 4 101 Brown Philip 5 101 Greene Thomas 6 102 Smith John 7 102 Jackson Arthur The resources will be copied into Excel from Project on a weekly basis, so I was after some ideas on how to make a macro that would separate the text out. Any ideas? Chris

separating data into separate columns
1 replies , 4/5/2004, 1:03:25 PM
Hi, I have two colums of data. The second column has the street address, the suburb and the postcode in the one column. The suburb is in capital letters. Is there a way to separate the data in this second column into three columns, that is, one for the street address, the next for the suburb and the third for the postcode, besides the long way around of copying and pasting each into separate columns. Perhaps a macro - I don't know how to write macros though. Any help would be much appreciated. seraya

Separate worksheet in separate workbook as macro
5 replies , 5/2/2009, 5:49:51 AM
This is probably going to sound lame, because I'm tired and my brain isn't functioning. I have a "routine" that requires a lot of input and a lot of intermediate calculations. Sounds like a spreadsheet, huh? <smile> What I'd like to do is arrange a UDF which would take the vaules from the "user spreadsheet", stuff them into the "background spreadsheet", wait for the "background spreadsheet" to finish recalculating and then lift the result found at a particular cell in the "background spreadsheet" and return that value as the returnvalue from the UDF. Something like: =mybigfunction(celladdress1, celladdress2, celladdress3, celladdress4, celladdress5, celladdress6, celladdress7, celladdress8) Is this doable? Is it trivial and I just can't seem to focus on how it might work? I have no trouble with hard coding the name of the "background spreadsheet" in the excel UDF (I know it will break if the "background spreadsheet" isn't loaded). Apologize in advance for my being this tired, but, we all soldier on the best way we can. Thanks

Separating a list
1 replies , 7/5/2004, 9:22:44 PM
I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this one, but I thought it best to ask... I have a set of import files that contains sales data for multiple stores. These are imported into a spreadsheet that has multiple analysis sheets based on the data. This is done automatically via a VB app nightly, and the results are emailed out to a list of recipients. Standard stuff, daily revenue, MTD, YTD, LY/CY, labor costs,etc. Now the problem. For some of the newly requested reports, some of the detail from the import files needs to be pulled into individual sheets for each store. They don't want to talk about another format, they just want to use the spreadsheet to replace some printed reports, and keep everything in one file. This would be simple enough with a VBA macro by running through the data and moving it to separate sheets based on the criteria cell contents, but the customer for this has all of their desktops locked down in a restricted environment where they cannot run macros. Is there a way, with forumulas only, to pull specific rows from a list based on some defined criteria? Or am I going to have to ask for individual files for data that must be separated? For a basic example: [import data] Store ID, Employee Number, Check Number,ItemNumber, Item Name, Amount,Return Reason 1, 123, 100, 12345,'Golf Balls',14.99,'Balls go into water' 2, 927, 200, 56789,'Expensive Titanium Driver',799.00,'Wife Said No' 1, 124, 110, 12365,'Golf Shirt',44.99,'Received as gift/not his style' And from this data show a report showing return transactions, seperated by Store ID

Separate numbers from text in column
3 replies , 10/16/2008, 1:53:23 PM
I've got a column of data in which most cells contain numbers and text, like the samples shown below. I need to use the numerical portion for some math. A few cells contain just a number, but most are a mix. Pretty sloppy data input, but there's nothing I can do about that. I have to work with what I've been given. Anyone know a way to extract just the numbers to a separate column? I don't see anything obvious in the list of Excel functions. I'm using Excel 2000. Sample data: 24 RL 80 USE 9.25Z 19.76 14 OZ 17.4OZ 15.6Z

Line Drawing Between Separated Data Points ?
2 replies , 4/27/2005, 3:35:52 PM
Hello: Have a chart made from a table that has bolood pressure readings as a function of dates. Some dates are skipped. The chart generated now connects a line between all the dates points that are there, sequentially, irrespective of whether there are points for all the (daily) dates. Is it possible for the generated chart to have the line missing for dates for which there is no data, and then to resume connecting the dots between actual data ponts ? Graph looks funny for data points connected for each day, which is what I want of course, and then a line connecting two points perhaps a week apart (for when on vacation with no data). Thanks, Bob

FYI, C13 does not always contain this data, just sometimes. I need something that would look for the dollar amount and copy only the dollar amount to K18. Thanks for all your help, I really appreciate your time. :o) Bull

Excel 2007 - Importing Text Decimal Separator Issue
2 replies , 12/20/2007, 2:05:02 PM
Hi, I am using Excel 2007 on Vista Ultimate. Importing a text file (txt and/or CSV) using "Data\Get external data\From text" and changing decimal separator to point (from comma) in advanced settings gives me an issue, namely that the applications keeps changing the separator back to comma (being my system setting). This is only an issue that I have experienced with Excel 2007. I have tried making makro using (VBA) DecimalSeparator and that only solves the issue for txt files NOT for CSV files. Apparently Excel handles the files differently depending on extension, even though the code remains exactly the same. Please help me! Thanks!

I have two web services both hosted on my BizTalk server, both generated using the BizTalk Web Services Publishing Wizard. On my development server, the two web services are each hosted in a virtual application under the server's default web site. On my production server, I have a separate IP address and web site dedicated to each web service. I haven't been able to find any way to generate an msi file for my application that will deploy the web services anywhere other than under the default web site. So I end up deploying them under the default web site on the production server and then moving them to where I really want them to be. Is there an easier, better way? Thanks, Zoe
