Find specific data and put in in a another cell.


I have some several multiple line cells in column A on my worksheet with a lot of unwanted data. All cells contain an email address and a name which I want to put in separate columns.

If the cell contains "Name:" and "Email:", I want to put the Name in Column B and Email in Column C

Name: John Doe
Email: <>

Any ideas?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Can you post an example of exactly how the raw data looks in column A and I can give you a solution?

That is the data inside 1 cell,

I want just the email and name extracted into separate cells
You haven't given me an example of *exactly how that data looks*.

It could be, Name:Bill Smith

OR  it might look like...

Name: Bill Smith, Email:

OR some other variation.

Anyhow...see the attached spreadsheet, which assumes how the data will look in column A. Let me know if you need this adapting to suit the format of the raw data.
Computer GuyAuthor Commented:
Hi, sorry about that. Please check this out as this is how I want it to look like.
Thanks. To be clear....will the raw data always adopt this format, and in particular contain the lines 'Primary Contact Information', 'Preferred Method of Contact:' and 'Phone:'?

For name use


for Email replace Name with Email using correct spelling and case


Do the same for other fields.
Ok, use the attached spreadsheet. Sheet 1 contains the raw method, Sheet 2 contains the condensed format for you.

Some of them say #VALUE! in them
Upload your file with those values in.

I was actually thinking something in VBA to search then put the values in the other cells
That wasn't explicit in your original request, and since you asked for "any ideas" I'd have thought using Excel's native formulae would also meet the objective! Can you upload the file which is throwing errors and I shall see what I can do for you?
