Find specific data and put in in a another cell.

Hi,

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: 123@123.net <mailto:123@123.net>

Any ideas?

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

guswebbCommented:
You haven't given me an example of *exactly how that data looks*.

It could be, Name:Bill Smith Email:bill@yahoo.com

OR  it might look like...

Name: Bill Smith, Email: bill@yahoo.com

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.

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

=MID(A1,FIND("Name:",A1)+LEN("Name:")+1,FIND(CHAR(13),A1,FIND("Name:",A1))-FIND("Name:",A1)-LEN("Name:"))


for Email replace Name with Email using correct spelling and case

=MID(A1,FIND("Email:",A1)+LEN("Email:")+1,FIND(CHAR(13),A1,FIND("Email:",A1))-FIND("Email:",A1)-LEN("Email:"))

Do the same for other fields.

Upload your file with those values in.

I was actually thinking something in VBA to search then put the values in the other cells

guswebbCommented:
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?
