Length Of A Cell With Fixed Characters Including Spaces 
Length Of A Cell With Fixed Characters Including Spaces  Excel 

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 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
Can somebody help me, i'm new to excel!
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!
Thank you.
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.
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
Thanks
Added example spreadsheet to aid assistance.
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 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 some cells setup with a dropdown list containing
Y, N or N/A
This is being used on a TabletPC but if I make a mistake or need to change
back to a blank field I have to invoke the soft keyboard, activate the cell
and hit backspace then close the soft keyboard  quite a longwinded
procedure just to change an incorrect choice!
What I would like to do is add a blank to the list so if I have to revert
back to a blank I can just use the stylus to choose a blank from the chooser
list.
How do I add the option of inputting a blank from the Data Validation List
bearing in mind I am using the Data Validation Source box for entering my
choices directly and not specifying a range of cells?
I have tried adding "" and even a space to no avail.
Although not a betting man I would wager there is a simple 'fix' for this
but things are only simple if you know how in the first instance! ;^)

Thanks & regards,

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
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!!

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!
I am a new user and trying to setup a database in excel. I can select all addresses and copy but when trying to paste into excel it does so in 1 cell.
Is there a way I can paste the separate email id's into individual cells so I don't have to do it individually?
Many thanks

So, basically I'm after: If column B has text, do nothing. If column B is blank, then list text from Column A.
Right now I've created Column C with this formula =IF(ISBLANK(B1), A1. That's working to get the text from A1 when B1 is blank. What can I do/add to get it pull the text from B1 if there is text there? Or...is there a better approach altogether?
(The reason I need to do this is for importing into Access, the database treats empty cells as NULL which is what I want. Blank (but not empty) cells screw the import process up.)
I have formulas to add a number of days to a cell containing an entered date and display the resulting new date (ie. 03/01/2011 (c34)+11 = 03/12/2011)
I am seeking to leave resulting formula cell blank until a date is entered in the input cell. Currently when the input cell is empty the formula cell obviously displays 1/11/1900 using the above example.
What conditional format would achieve leaving the formula cell blank until date data in entered into the source cell?
Hopefully a simpler question for your experience level than mine.
