Hey all,
Coffee hasn't hit my brain yet this morning and I cant figure this one out.
I have a list of names that are in the following format:
LastName Suffix, FirstName MI
The middle initial is not always present, neither is the suffix. For simplicity purposes, we will assume the suffix can ONLY be "Jr."
Here is some sample data:
Brown Jr., Wayne
Fowler, Michael
Parker, David A
Winstead Jr., Johnny N
I want the output to be the following:
Brown, Wayne
Fowler, Michael
Parker, David
Winstead, Johnny
Thanks in advance for the help!
PS (if i can get a formula that at least gets rid of the middle initial at the end (if it exists), then that would be a HUGE step in the right direction, as the Jr. only occurs on maybe 3% of my data. The middle initial is in about 80% of the data.

Hi
I am looking for a formula to remove special characters and spaces from a cell
I have been using "substitute" but this requires me to know which character I want to remove and this isn't always known
I have tried looking at some macro solutions but became lost quite quickly
Any help would be much appreciated

I need to find data in two different formats within a column
Examples
Webb Christopher
Greer Nancy
I need to find cells with text that have more than one space between the first and last names; and cells with text that have only one space between the first and last names.
I am fairly new to excel. I can find the space after the first word but cannot tell it to find ones that say have a space then another string of text.
Thank you for your help!

Col A contains full name. Might be Bob Smith and might be Robert Smith Jr. or Carol De La Cruz. Regardless, I need to put anything after the first space first, with a comma, then the first name last. So Bob Smith would be Smith, Bob and Carol De La Cruz would be De La Cruz, Carol and Robert Smith Jr. would be Smith Jr., Robert.
So far I have this:
=MID(A2&" "&A2,FIND(" ",A2)+1,LEN(A2))
It works, but I have no comma and space before the first name. What am I missing?

Hello All, I have a column where cells need to be 50 characters long, it contains addresses, however, since all the addresses do not meat the criteria, I need to add (blank spaces) to reach the 50 characters, any idea on how to approach this?
Example
Fire Street #50 this cell contains 17 characters therefore I need to add the rest by adding blank spaces to reach 50 characters, otherwise the system I am exporting the data will not understand this cell

I am puzzled by a thin black line (that looks like a border line) on a spreadsheet that I am unable to remove, whatever I do. It starts halfway across column B and stops just at the end of column Z.
It is not a border line.
It is not a page break.
If I delete the rows it appears on it remains visible.
It is not an object floating on top of the spreadsheet.
Any ideas?
Thanks.

I have AplphaNumeric part numbers that sometimes contain hyphens or decimals. In order to make them more searchable (since people don't always use the hyphens or decimals properly when they search) I would like to create all the possible variants of the part number, but with one formula.
So AHW18.787 becomes AHW18 787 and AHW18787 with
=SUBSTITUTE(A1,"."," ") and
=SUBSTITUTE(A1,".","") respectively, and
AHRTWA187007 becomes AHRTW A18 7007 and AHRTWA187007 with
=SUBSTITUTE(A1,""," ") and
=SUBSTITUTE(A1,"","").
What I need to be able to do is merge these formulas into one, so that no matter what format the part number is in A1, I get a version of it with spaces in B1, and a version of it with no spaces in C1. I just have not been able to nest it all together  is it even possible with this command?
Thx

Hello,
I'm a bit of a newbie with Excel, but...
I have several cells with data that contain both letters and numbers (4H, 8V, 4FH, etc.) What I want to do is remove only the text characters from these cells, and add the remaining number values together among a series of cells with this data type.
If your answer involves using a macro or VB, please provide a link on how to use the formula. I've never used a macro or VB.
Thanks.

I run a small business. I want to start keeping track of inventory using a barcode system.
I know Excel "ok", but I don't know programming.'
I'd like to be able to do something very simple (for now)...
For example...if I had PRODUCT / CODE / INV VALUE
A  CODE A  5
B  CODE B  11
C  CODE C  14
I would want to be able to click a button (or scan a code for) : ADD +1 or REMOVE 1
...then scan the barcode on the product (A) and have it add or remove one, respectively. So, if the row for A is:
A  CODE A  5
I choose "ADD" (with a button or scan code), then scan the barcode, and the spreadsheet automatically finds the code in the sheet, and changes the corresponding inventory value:
A  CODE A  6
Does that make sense? How might I go about doing that?

Hi,
I have a column with a set of duplicate values. I need to remove the duplicates while leaving the original data and keeping the blanks. The Remove Duplicates function comprises the data and this does not work for me. Help!

Sorry for the question. Normally I find answers to my excel questions by going through the help tab or by searching on Google. However, I don't even know what question to ask on this one!?!
Basically I have created a spreadsheet with several columns, but I have one column that lists the shirt size (YS, YM, YL, AS, AM, AL, XL, 2X, 3X) of each person. Is there a formula that I can create that will tabulate the number of sizes (i.e. AS=2, AM=7, etc.)?
In previous years I made a column for each size, and simply placed a "1" in the correct column, and had excel just add the 1's from each column. However, that takes more time and space. I was hoping to streamline it this time around.
Thanks for taking the time to read this post. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, doug

I am trying to create a formula which will look at the data in columns A  I (50 rows) and copy this data to columns K  S but ignoring any blank cells. Thereby consolidating the data in the upper rows with no spaces.
I am sure there is a relativley simple answer but it is driving me mad!
Hope you "Guru's" can help

Hi all,
I'm trying to extract all the text in a cell which is on the right side of a comma (,)
Currently I am using this formula,

However it sometimes is missing some of the data after the, and sometimes pulling a few characters before the,
any suggestions on how to correct my formula please?

I am trying to sum all numbers <0 using the SUMIF formula in Excel 2003.
FORMULA: =sumif(range,criteria,sum_range)
I got it to work, but I have cell ranges to total that are not next to each
other (such as A5:A15 and C5:C15).
When selecting the ranges for the formula, Excel writes them A5:A15,C5:C15
because of the comma (,) between the cell ranges Excel is reading the A5:A15
as the range and C5:C15 as the critera. How can I get this formula to allow
me to select multiple cell ranges?
All help is appreciated.

Hi,
I made a budget with many narrow columns and have turned the data into a table. I will only ever filter the data with the lefthand most column. However, all the other columns are filled each with the grey dropdown filter arrow button, and I can no longer see the headings of these columns and frankly seeing 50 little unused arrow buttons is rather ugly. Is there any way to simply remove the filter dropdown buttons on some columns or even all of them, just leaving a filter button at the heading of the first column? I know I can hide the headings, but then I lose sight of the first filter arrow that I use.
Sorry to ask such a bizarre question, but I appreciate your help.

Hello, I'm trying to count the number of times a name appears across multiple worksheets but I can't seem to figure it out.
I have 6 sheets to count and all the names are in column A (from A1:A100) on each sheet. The names are not in a particular order.
On sheet 7 I want to have a cell beside each persons name that counts the number of times their name appeared on the other 6 sheets.
For example Sheet 7 (called total) would have
Joe 5 (where 5 is the outcome of the formula I'm looking for to count all the times "Joe" appears on sheets 16).
I have it counting per sheet with =COUNTIF(A1:A130,"name") but this is not quite what I am looking for.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
Edit: I am using Excel 2007 w/ windows XP

Hey guys,
I want to know how to copy part of a cell and paste it into a new cell.
Example:
a1= 8hAs7c
portion needed: 7c
I used this formula:
=RIGHT(A1,2)
This returns 7c like I want.
However in the next cell I want to source the middle two (As)
And in another cell I want the first two (8h)
How do I go about this?

I have noticed that a handful of people at work enter a formula as =+A1+A2 instead of the way I would enter it =A1+A2
What is the origin of the extra plus sign at the beginning? To me it seems to be unproductive and is simply not needed. I have been using Excel for over 12 years and have never needed to enter any formulas like that. Does this originate back to a much older version of Excel where it was once needed?
Just curious.
Thanks.
