    Need VBA to Extract data from Column A to Column B

    I have in a column various text arrays. In those arrays you will find E-Numbers like E270. Those E-Numbers I want to have in the column next to it separated. Can you create an Excel formula for this?

    Example text in one cell:
    Rapsöl, Ziegen-/ KuhMilch-Frischkäsezubereitung 29% (ZiegenMilch[Niederlande], Kuhmilch [Deutschland], Kochsalz, Olivenöl, Wasser, Säuerungsmittel [E 270], modifizierte Maisstärke [E 1422], Pfeffer, Knoblauch), Paprikaschoten, Kochsalz, Säuerungsmittel (E 330, E 260), Festigungsmittel (E 509).


    This Data is in Cell A1:
    Rapsöl, Ziegen-/ KuhMilch-Frischkäsezubereitung 29% (ZiegenMilch[Niederlande], Kuhmilch [Deutschland], Kochsalz, Olivenöl, Wasser, Säuerungsmittel [E 270], modifizierte Maisstärke [E 1422], Pfeffer, Knoblauch), Paprikaschoten, Kochsalz, Säuerungsmittel (E 330, E 260), Festigungsmittel (E 509).

    What I Need:
    I need to Extract all E number to cell B1 like you can see on Cell A1 E 270, E 1422, E 330, E 260, E509

    Hi,

    Here's one UDF that should work.

    Also a UDF

    Use in cell like
    =JoinWithChr(A1,"E",", ")

    Hi Farhan,

    Following on from your PM request and my suggestions, glad to see you got some great help here.
    You were able to explain your problem much better!

    It would be courteous to put a link to similar Threads you are posting
    http://www.excelforum.com/excel-prog...-column-b.html
    http://www.excelforum.com/excel-form...from-text.html
    That way the Helpers are less likely to Duplicate work.

    ( Note also please for future reference and read please Forum Rules
    http://www.excelforum.com/forum-rule...rum-rules.html
    especially please read for future reference:
    Rule 4. Don't Private Message or email Excel questions to moderators or other members.
    And
    Rule 5. Don't duplicate threads )
    ( and Rule 1. 1. Use concise, accurate thread titles – you made a big improvement there! )

    _ .....................................................
    But no harm done this time as you are still very new here, : Glad you got some great help with many alternatives. It made it all great to learn in seeing the alternatives from so many people!!

    BTW. Note again what both bebo021999 and hemesh said
    ‚……Array formulas are...confirmed by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to activate the array, not just ENTER. You will know the array is active when you see curly braces { } appear around your formula. If you do not CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER you will get an error or a clearly incorrect answer….“

    Their formulas all worked great! ( I have implemented them for you in the enclosed File, putting those CSE Type 1 formulas in manually - ), ( - The only difficulty i am still investigating is that I was unable to use VBA to put those formulas in using .FormulaArray = ***** )

    Hope that is all a good contribution
    Alan


    Enclosed: ( Attached ) A Summary File I used while learning from these two posts
    See Sheet “farhangulNährwerteE“ and Sheet Code Module for the CSE Formulas implementation and my ( failed ***** ) attempt at putting them in with code )
    And Normal Macro Module: „PubsUDFs“ for the 3 given Functions
    ( I will update this file as I learn and understand more of it, and in particular RegEx stuff... )
    File “BrentacvegasjindonRegexFahan.xlsm”

    Thanks all again, great learning experience along with the other alternatives.
    Alan.


    And as last.... here is another Function ( and test calling code ) along the line of jindon’s
    Copy all Code to a Normal Macro Code Module
    Type in a cell
    =ENummern(A1) ( or =ENummern(A35).... etc ) where Cell A1 ( or Cell A35) has your string of ingredients in it enit )

    Code:
