I would like to count the number of a particular character within a cell. In

the cell are store numbers/names separated by the | character. The store

number/name represents a stop that the truck made. There is always one more

| character than stops. An example is: PER | R7 | PER is one stop at R7.

Another example is: BAK | 80 | 42 | BAK is 2 stops- one at 80 and one at 42.

Yes there is a space before and after the | character and PER or BAK is where

the truck started and ended. Thank you for any help.

within a cell. For example, I want only 10 characters within a cell, so

either I could set it up beforehand and excell will not let me put more than

10 characters or it could count how many characters I have in the cell with a

formula.

Was wondering if you could let me know of a formula that counts the number of characters in a cell,

Many Thanks

How would I count occurrences of the string "313" in the beginning of each string, throughout hte column?

For instance, the count on this column would be 4.

Thanks to anyone with suggestions.

I'm trying to count the number of occurnaces of a character within a cell to use as criteria within an If statement in a Macro.... For example

Hi/This is/ Randy

Hi/this is Randy

I'd like to count the number of "/" within the cell 2 for the first, 1 for the second.

If the solution requires VBA/an entry userform, I'm prepared to do that (though not my first choice). I just need to know how to appraoch it... thanks in advance for any and all help!!!

application that restricts the length of each line to 40 characters. Is there

a way to count the number of characters on a cell so I can automate the

review process for each cell of my spreadsheet with one formula or function

that indicates for each cell the number of characters (with spaces) that it

contains?

I appreciate very much any input

Is there any way of counting the number of characters within a cell without having to do the text to columns thing?

I have many screen captures of TRAU frames and need to quickly determine the number of bits in the string e.g. this could be in a single cell

1111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111 11111111

Thanks in advance

Simon

Jane = 4

Timothy = 7

(What I actually want to do is to truncate an email address by removing everything before the '@' sign. So I need a forumula something like =RIGHT(A1,SEARCH("@",A1)+FUNCTION) . Thanks.)

Anyone able to help?

Many thanks in adavnce

(a) identify non-alphnumeric characters within a cell,

(b) within range A1:G60000

(c) and mark each cell with such a character in a way that I can easily

identify the cells with FIND or by sorting

I found this macro here but all it does is change the color of the

non-alphanumeric characters. I have >180,000 rows to look through so I

need a way to aggregate all of the exceptions in a short list so I can

deal with them.

Sub Test()

For Each cell In Range("A1:G50000").Cells

For i = 1 To Len(cell)

Select Case Asc(Mid(cell.Value, i, 1))

Case 48 To 57, 65 To 90, 79 To 122

cell.Characters(Start:=i, Length:=1).Font.ColorIndex =

1

Case Else

cell.Characters(Start:=i, Length:=1).Font.ColorIndex =

3

End Select

Next i

Next

End Sub

Thanks for your help!

i have a problem counting the number of characters in each cell in column "A" in a sheet and checking if number of characters in a cell exceeds 5 characters.

thanks in advance

I am working on a spreadsheet with what will be a year's worth of data (as of Oct. 2007). I am setting up another spreadsheet to which I want to pull quarterly data, but right now I am having trouble counting instances of "N" within a set date range. I have been able to use =sumproduct((range>=[cell referencing date Q1 starts])*(range<=[cell referencing date Q1 ends])) to define Quarter 1. I will then repeat for Q2-4.

My next step is to count instances of "N" in Q1 only. I tried to nest my sumproduct in an if(and(... but that wants to return a true or false value and I need the total number of "N"s. I am trying to avoid adding a column and totaling the "true value"s at the bottom. Below are the three columns of "dummy data" with which I am working:

Name | Enroll Date | Exercise

Smith, John 9/24/2006 N

Smith, Jane 10/1/2006 N

Doe, John 10/13/2006 Y=>3x/wk

Doe, Jane 11/1/2006 N

Green, John 11/20/2006 N

Green, Jane 11/30/2006 Y=>3x/wk

Brown, John 12/1/2006 N

Brown, Jane 12/7/2006 N

Black, John 12/21/2006 Y=>3x/wk

Black, Jane 12/31/2006 N

Knight, John 1/1/2007 N

Knight, Jane 1/17/2007 Y=>3x/wk

Q1 Start date: 10/1/06

Q1 End date: 12/31/06

I've been stuck for days! Any help would be much appreciated!

So I need to put an addiotional code around the command to not run the spell check if the cell contains more than 1300 characters.

can you help?

I want to calculate the total number of characters in a cell or group of cells. Also, as a second step, I want to indicate which cells have a total number of characters greater than a certain value.

Thanks in advance,

Rgds,

Sonar Chief.

I would like to find the Excel formula (not VBA if possible) to know the longest string before meeting special characters within a cell.

Where does it apply?

CELL A1 Content

The formula related to A2

CELL A2 Content

You have earnt:/n1000 points/n/nPress the cross button to enter the shop./n

What the formula should do?

I would like to return the max string length (len()) before the characters "/n" within a cell.

According to the Cell A2 content, it should return the value "41" since:

"Press the cross button to enter the shop." = 41 characters

"You have earnt:" = 15 characters

"1000 points" = 11 characters

If you can do it with a regular Excel formula, it would be more simple for me.

However, I understand that only some solutions can be done via VBA (I already have some running macros in the same sheet).

Thanks in advance for your help if someone knows

Stephane

infomation and paste it into another form that does not allow more than

100 characters. Is there a way to limit the number of characters in a

cell with a message if it is exceeded without using macros?

I have strings of text within these cells, which may or may not include a

small string of text in the middle of the strings, such as "(LA)" within the

string "CA 101 - Introduction to Computers (LA) (CA 99, FND 101)" .

Each cell will be different, but many will have "(LA)" or other 4 or 5

character strings within the larger strings, like the one above.

I need a formula (hopefully in one cell) to count the number of times or

cells such a string "(LA)" appears within the larger strings in the cells in

this range.

Thanks in advance for giving your time to this dilemma.

Basically I need to make sure to clear any where the total number of characters 25 or less. This is due to the fact that I need to import this file into a database with a column field restriction.

So if J2 is: "12345678901234567890123456" then I need to clear it or at least identify it.

Conversely if J3 is:"1234567890123456789012345" then I need to leave it.

Any idea on how to count the number of characters per cell, and maybe possibly create a macro to clear the contents of any cell in column J which is over 25 characters?

Thank you

Example the cell contains "Martin Chooker" I want to know the number of "o" in the cell which the result would be 2.

then if that number isn't what it is supposed to be add leading 0's till

it is the correct number?

We are getting some new accounts sent to us that use an 11 digit number

to represent the account number. Some of these have leading 0's in them

but excel loses them when sent over. So ideally I'd like to create

something that would look at the cell, count the characters and if it

is less than 11 add 0's to the front till it is 11 characters.

Ex: Account number 00123123123

It's sent to us and now looks like 123123123

I'd do the formula on the cell and get the original number back

00123123123

It's usually only missing 1 or 2 0's. It's very rare that the number

starts with 3 0's.

If anyone has any suggestions it's appreceated.

Thanks
