Remove All Special Characters And Spaces In One Go 
Remove All Special Characters And Spaces In One Go  Excel 

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
Thanks

I have several rows of text data, the first 17 characters of which are in this format (4 letters__DD.MM.YYYY
It's then followed by a variable number of characters i.e.
ABCD  01.02.2003 ABCDEFG HIJ KLMNO
I would be grateful for a formula that will delete all characters to the right of the 17th character (i.e. the '3').
Many thanks!
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 wonder if you could help with this one, I have a list of data like this (no spaces or other characters)
JN551122B
What I need to do is split each of the characters in to its own cell
if JN551122B was in cell A1 I'd want to return:
B2 C2 D2 E2 F2 G2 H2 I2 J2
J N 5 5 1 1 2 2 B
The nearest I have got is the right function, but it brings over the preceeding characters, and I need each character in its own cell. Hopefully I could copy/paste a formula and change the reference for each cell value, i.e. 1 would return J, 2 = N, 3 = 5, 4 = 5 etc.
Thanks for your help!
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.

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
Can somebody help me, i'm new to excel!
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!
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.
between Excel workbooks. They can copy and paste between worksheets. When
you highlight the section to copy and then go to the new workbook both the
paste
and paste special are "grayed out". This is true whether you rightclick the
mouse, go to the edit menu, or use control keys. This occurs with any data
type and the most simple workbooks. I have seen some suggestions here but
none have worked for this particular problem. I have reset the menus and
renamed the .xlb files and neither helps. You can open the clipboard and the
paste will work, but there is no paste special option. Any help would be
greatly appreciated. Thanks!
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?
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.
Thanks
I have searched online and in help but can't seem to find the best solution...
I have values like 00904BB303D6 that need to become: 00:90:4B:B3:03:D6 (the value is always 12 digits, and the : needs to appear every two digits.) Is there a formula that can easily do this for me? Your suggestions are greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!!!!
I have a spreadsheet with data from A1 to H1 down to A275 to H275. I select all of it, Copy, go into the Sheet2 tab and select A1, Paste Special > Transpose and it give me the following error message:
Quote:
The information cannot be pasted because the Copy area and the paste area are not the same size and shape. Try one of the following:
 Click a single cell, and then paste.
 Select a rectangle that's the same size and shape, and then paste.
For the life of me, I can't figure out why it's not working! I have done this many times with other spreadsheets. Has anyone ever experienced this? If so, were you able to resolve it and how?
Many Thanks,
Mike
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,
=RIGHT(C1,FIND(",",C1)1)
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?
Thanks in advance.
(changes the cells it should subtract), however, the result stays the same.
It matches the formula I copied it from, even though the cells to calculate
are now different. I even did a paste special and said only formula, but
still, same result. If I actually type in the formula, it works fine, but I
have a lot I need to copy and paste. Is there a way I can fix this?
Thanks,
When I try to paste the finished result into notepad/textpad/word it adds extra double quote marks throughout the text. Does anyone know how to paste it without these marks?
Thanks!
