(solved) – How to use Regular Expressions (Regex) in Microsoft Excel both in-cell and loops

  • by

How can I use regular expressions in Excel and take advantage of Excel’s powerful grid-like setup for data manipulation?

  • In-cell function to return a matched pattern or replaced value in a string.
  • Sub to loop through a column of data and extract matches to adjacent cells.
  • What setup is necessary?
  • What are Excel’s special characters for Regular expressions?

I understand Regex is not ideal for many situations (To use or not to use regular expressions?) since excel can use Left, Mid, Right, Instr type commands for similar manipulations.
