Extracting Numbers From Alphanumeric Strings 
Extracting Numbers From Alphanumeric Strings  Excel 

DATA output should be
asd67,h876 > 67876
2,3,ujdj5&34 > 23534
909k86m34 > 9098634
Hope this makes sense?

Here's my question...I have a list of numbers and I want to know how many combinations (and what they are) of adding the numbers will equal an amount.
e.g.
List of Numbers
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
Amount to be reached = 12
These are some of the possible combinations to reach 12 :
2+10
3+9
4+8
5+7
3+4+5
6+3+2+1
Is there a function in Excel that will do this for me? I want to know which numbers (i.e. cells) can be added to reach 12. AND, if possible, colorcode the cells added for each combination.
Good luck and thanks!!
lets suppose my numbers a 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11
I want to generate all possibilities of the 6 numbers. But i dont want duplicate series.. I mean 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 6,5,4,3,2,1 are duplicates.
ANY HELPS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED
I have an array of 9 columns and 20 rows with equity symbols and conditionally formatted to show the severity of price movement in either direction.
Instead of typing in the value of whatever cell a trader is looking at I would like for them to just be able to click on the cell and have that symbol copied into R4 so some detailed information can be displayed for them.
Can't find a thing about this on any forum or msdn.
Hope I'm explaining this at least somewhat clearly.
Thanks.
I need to know the formula (if there is one) for Excel to figure all the possible combinations of a given set of numbers that will add up to a specified sum.
In other words, if I give the following numbers 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7  I want Excel to figure all the possible combinations that will add up to 23, and also SHOW ME those combinations, and not just HOW MANY combinations there are.
i.e. one possible combination is 2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7
Can this be done? What is the formula? I'm having a hard time figuring it out!!
Desperately,
Jenny
For example my numbers are formatted like this: 1234 and I would like to add zeros to the end so it looks like this: 123400 (no decimal).
I would do it manually but I have a column of over 2000 different numbers.
Thanks for your help, you guys are great!

The question:
How can you prevent a cell's contents from overflowing into the next cell?
Of course, you can make the column wider or turn on text wrapping, but you might not want to. Each of those solutions can mess up the layout of your sheet. You may just want to truncate the value.
Some people have suggested putting a space in the next cell. This is unnecessary, a pain in the but, and will mess up any ISBLANK type formulas, among other things.
The solution:
Select the cells in question and turn on text wrapping (Format>Cells>Alignment>Wrap Text).
Now select the row(s) in question and manually set the row height, by right clicking the row number and selecting "Row Height". Check the height of an adjacent row for a good value.
Your cells will now not spill over either horizontally or vertically. They will simply truncate anything that doesn't fit.
Be careful now, because parts of your data may be hidden. This can cause its own set of problems if one or two digits are neatly hidden away. Think ahead if other people might be using this sheet, and not be expecting to have some data hidden.
Tested in Excel 2002
i have a column of numbers that we extracted from a database as whole numbers. for instance, 30 should be .30 and 100 should be 1.00. when i try to increase or decrease the decimal point it doesn't allow me to convert it to those positions.
would any one have a tip of how i can easily convert this? there are over 2000 entries in my excel spreadsheet so to do it manually would take a lot of time/effort.
thank you!
I'm hoping someone can help me.
I need to be able to clear the contents of cells in column C, D, E, H if the value of column Q equals HELLO for arguments sake.
Clearing the contents of an entire row is not a problem, however when it comes to resizing rows I seem to come unstuck.

Any help would be appreciated.
Hoping someone can help me quickly as I'm pulling my hair out and have a deadline getting too close.
Been trailing the net and this board but can't work out how to do a simple variance.
How do I work out the difference between two numbers  including negatives.
If the numbers are all positive, it's fine as it's simply a case of A  B = C which is your difference. However, that doesn't work if B is negative.
I need a formula that would give the following:
First Number / Second Number / Difference
1 / 5 / 4
1 / 5 / 6
1 / 5 / 6
1 / 5 / 4
5 / 1 / 4
Hopefully there's a simple function I've been missing.
Thanks in advance, R

I'm trying to write a macro which prints to PDF and saves the file name as the contents of a cell. I've been looking through all the posts currently on this forum to get something working. I'm using the following code 
Sub PrintPDF()
Filename = "C:\Documents and Settings\samb\My Documents\" & ActiveSheet.Range("Z1").Value
SendKeys Filename & "{ENTER}", False
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, ActivePrinter:= _
"Adobe PDF:", Collate:=True
End Sub
The macro prints to PDF, but then it stops at the Save As stage, where I have to manually enter the name of the file and click Save. I want the macro to automatically name the file with the contents of cell Z1. I then want it to then automatically press enter. Any ideas where I'm going wrong? Any help would be much appreciated!
I have two worksheets and wish to copy rows from worksheet 1 to worksheet 2 if a condition is met in one of the cells within that row.
Hope that makes sense.
Thanks
I've been having a strange problem lately. I have a fairly lengthy macro that works perfectly most of the time. Occasionally it will run as expected but as soon as the macro ends, excel becomes unresponsive to mouseclicks. When I click anywhere (trying to select a cell, or an excel menu item...clicking anywhere in excel) I'll get the a 'ding' system sound and nothing will happen. BUT, if I use the keyboard arrow keys, I can see that the active cell selection moves accordingly. Then it gets really strange  when I have a cell highlighted and press any key to input text, it gets duplicated. So if I press "s' it will input "ss" into the cell, and then when I press enter it will automove to the next cell down, but nothing ends up getting saved into the previous cell.
I don't understand what's going on at all. I can't think of anything in my macro that would have these kinds of effects. I've made sure that screenupdating is turned back on at the end of every procedure. If I go into the VBE, I can manually run procedures and they all work fine. The only way I've been able to get back to normal is by force closing excel altogether and reopening. Any ideas?
______________________
Still having trouble, and the same thing is happening with this workbook on two different computers, so I don't think it's a hardware, or OS specific issue. When it gets locked up like this, I can still do anything in the VBE (edits cells, run macros, etc.) with no problems. If I'm in the excel window, I can click alt on the keyboard and the shortcut keys for the menu come up, but I can't go deeper than that by clicking the letter shortcuts, they do nothing. If I use the delete key to delete the contents of a cell, then it gets deleted. But if I type anything else (numbers, letters, or symbols) then it types 2 instances of the key every time, yet when I hit enter, nothing changes in the cell. I also can't really bring focus to the excel window if something else (ie. the VBE) is on top of it, clicking into the excel window just gives the little system 'ding' sound and nothing happens.
If I hit the save button in the VBE (since I can't click anything in the excel window), then it seems to snap out of it and go back to normal. I tried searching for anything simmilar to this and can't find anything...
Any help would be much appreciated. This is driving me nuts!
I am trying to understand why I can not use Ctrl+F to find data in Column B, yet I can find the data in Column A.
I have a worksheet that in column A has numbers, in column B, the following formula "IF(ISNUMBER($A1),$A1,"").
Ctrl+F will find numbers in Column A, yet not in Column B. Why is this so? What can be done to ensure Ctrl+F works in Column B?
For example, suppose you have tables of data on 3 different tabs, all having the same headings. Suppose one of the headings is "gender". If you apply a filter to the table on Sheet 1, to only show the rows containing the word "female", is it possible to have the tables on Sheets 2 and 3 automatically update to only show the "female" rows? Or would you have to manually update the filter criteria in Sheets 2 and 3?
I hope this makes sense. Thank you in advance for any help.

I need to have a cell on Sheet2 display the TEXT from a cell on Sheet1, is his possible??
Example:
Sheet1, Cell A1 contains a clients name and I would like to have Sheet2, Sheet3, Sheet4 etc... Display that clients name in a cell of my choosing (could be a different cell on each Sheet) automatically after entering it once on Sheet1, cell A1.
I thought this was possible but I can't seem to figure it out. I haven't done any real Excel work in quite a long time but I thought I had done this before a long time ago!! Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks in advance...
P.S. If I use autosum to do this it just displays the number 0, obviously, since it is trying to add numbers...
I uploaded a copy of the spreadsheet, What I would like to happen is have the text from Sheet1,D4 automatically be placed in Sheet2,A1 and Sheet3, B2. Hope this helps

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.
