A20.5 Excel: Extract Value from String
Level of expertise required for this Chapter: Expert
You have a long table, where the entry clerk has combined a string with a number into one field. See the example below, for import to LUPMIS the business classes and descriptions are merged in one column.
In LUPMIS, you need the numeric class (of the business) in column AA.
Just insert following formula, which picks the numbers from column AC
and copy it down to all records.
Of course, if the source is not column AC, you have to modify it in the formula (replace AC with the correct column).
You will need the value instead of the formula, so you might also have to copy - paste special - value, before you import into LUPMIS.
