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
Instr type commands for similar manipulations.
