VBA Solution For Extracting Data From A Spreadsheet

Hi,

I have a spreadsheet attached that has multiple lines in Column A (this is just a sample as there are several cells continuing down Column A)

Each cell does have this data:

Is this what you want ? I copied and modified some of your cells downward just to make sure test is ok. Make sure macros are activated and check out the results. Press on the button in sheet1

If gowflow's solution is essentially the same as this macro then please give him all the credit.

Sub GetData()

Dim lngRow As Long
Dim intPosStart As Integer
Dim intPosEnd As Integer

For lngRow = 1 To ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count
    intPosStart = InStr(1, Cells(lngRow, 1).Value, "Name:")
    intPosStart = intPosStart + 6
    intPosEnd = InStr(intPosStart, Cells(lngRow, 1).Value, "Preferred")
    Cells(lngRow, 2).Value = Mid(Cells(lngRow, 1).Value, intPosStart, intPosEnd - intPosStart)
    
    intPosStart = InStr(1, Cells(lngRow, 1).Value, "Email:")
    intPosStart = intPosStart + 7
    intPosEnd = InStr(intPosStart, Cells(lngRow, 1).Value, "Phone")
    Cells(lngRow, 3).Value = Mid(Cells(lngRow, 1).Value, intPosStart, intPosEnd - intPosStart)

Next
End Sub
