Data segregation

Hi,

I have a formula / macro written which will actually separates the data and will fill in the appropriate buckets. The below line is copied to ‘Copied’ worksheet in ‘PAC Standard.xlsm’ workbook. Once copied, the formula in ‘Sorted’ worksheet will search for the required data and will put in the appropriate bucket.  This works really fine when there is only one serial number in the given line. Please refer to ‘PAC Standard v1.1 one line only.xlsm’ workbook for better understanding.

Example of a line with one serial number:

Serial Number :PSQS Dummy S/N;Host Name:Pillar Bricks Integration;Instance Id :60091571;

However, if the line has multiple serial numbers then this formula is not effective. Kindly note that each line will start with a serial number and the data associated with it.

Example of a line with multiple serial numbers:

Serial Number :PSQS Dummy S/N;Host Name:Pillar Bricks Integration;Instance Id :60091571;Serial Number :PX60909015;Address Line 1:KARL SCHWEIGHOFERGASSE 3;Address Line 2:;City:WIEN;Country:Austria;Postal Code:1010;State:;Instance Id :43286296; Host Name:zone03;Serial Number :HN35018754;Address Line 1:Air Surveillance Product Line (COESD5);Address Line 2:Wörthstr. 85;City:Ulm;Country:Germany;Postal Code:89077;State:;Instance Id :47110132; Serial Number :0724MM2093;Address Line 1:Hansaweg 90;Address Line 2:;City:Greven;Country:Germany;Postal Code:48268;State:;Instance Id :47820018; Serial Number :BEL075141G;Address Line 1:AQUARIUS BUILDING,;Address Line 2:ADASTRAL PARK,MARTLESHAM HEATH;City:IPSWICH;Country:United Kingdom;Postal Code:IP5 3RE;State:;Instance Id :48294133; Serial Number :TE34840069;Address Line 1:Air Surveillance Product Line (COESD5);Address Line 2:Wörthstr. 85;City:Ulm;Country:Germany;Postal Code:89077;State:;Instance Id :47961681; Serial Number :BCF093104K;Address Line 1:Kruppstr. 121-124;Address Line 2:;City:Frankfurt;Country:Germany;Postal Code:60388;State:;Instance Id :47152980;

I have given an example on how the data should separate once it is copied in ‘copied’ worksheet of ‘PAC Standard v1.1 multiple lines.xlsm’. Please review and kindly do the needful. Your help is highly appreciated.

Thank you,
Prashanth

The attached file will extract the  data in cells that are A1 sequencially down A2 A3 etc.

The code is below...
Note that only data with a valid matching header will output, other data will be ignored.

Sub Extract_from_copied()

Dim arr, arr2
Dim nextdatarow As Long
Dim x As Long, y As Long, i As Long
i = 1
Do While Len(Sheets("Copied").Range("A" & i).Value) <> 0
arr = Sheets("Copied").Range("A" & i).Value

arr = Replace(arr, "Serial Number :", "|")
arr = Split(arr, "|")

For x = 1 To UBound(arr)
    arr2 = Split(arr(x), ";")
    
    nextdatarow = Sheets("Sorted").Range("B" & Sheets("Sorted").Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1
    
    Sheets("Sorted").Cells(nextdatarow, "B").Value = arr2(0)
    For y = 1 To UBound(arr2)
    If Len(Trim(arr2(y))) <> 0 Then
        ValMatch = Trim(Left(arr2(y), InStr(1, arr2(y), ":") - 1))
        ValReturn = Trim(Right(arr2(y), Len(arr2(y)) - (InStr(1, arr2(y), ":"))))
        On Error Resume Next
        Sheets("Sorted").Cells(nextdatarow, WorksheetFunction.Match(ValMatch, Sheets("Sorted").Range("A1:J1"), 0)).Value = ValReturn
        On Error GoTo 0
    End If
    Next y

Next x
i = i + 1
Loop
End Sub
