Excel Macro to extract sentences containing a particular word


I found the below macro at: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Q_28520535.html

It can be used to find sentences in an Excel column which contain a particular word. Change the Range from

Range("A1", Range("A1").End(xlDown)) to show the cells at the top and bottom of the column with the text you are searching. This macro is set to look for the strings EMR and EHR. The search is case sensitive.

See the demonstrative video here:

Sub ListPhrases() Dim rng As Range Dim cl As Object Dim arrPhrases() As String Dim x, c As Integer 'Change "A1" to the first cell where sentences occur to test Set rng = Range("A1", Range("A1").End(xlDown)) For Each cl In rng arrPhrases = Split(cl.Value, ",") c = 1 For x = 0 To UBound(arrPhrases) If InStr(arrPhrases(x), "EHR") > 0 Then cl.Offset(0, c).Value = Trim(arrPhrases(x)) c = c + 1 ElseIf InStr(arrPhrases(x), "EMR") > 0 Then cl.Offset(0, c).Value = Trim(arrPhrases(x)) c = c + 1 End If Next x Next cl End Sub
