Hey Guys,

New to the forum, but I have something tricky that I want to do in excel. I want to generate a part number based off a specific word input. For example

Titus350FS222224x24Lay InStd WhiteNo Screw HolesNoneNoneNoneNone

<tbody>
</tbody>
=
350FS-24,0,24,0,0,1,26,A,0,0,0,0
^This is is the part number I am trying to generate.
Certain criteria changes and a different number would show up. I tried using index match, but could figure out how to get the commas in between each number and to even start the next number.

Any help would be greatly appreciated because I am officially stuck.

You need to explain the significance of the elements of your new part number based on your example input.
Thanks for the response. Basically each element is linked to an output in a database. EX. STD White = 26. The problem I'm having inst so much matching each element to the desired number, but doing it for all the different criteria. Here's the equation i used to match border to the desired number. How do I continue this? Thanks for the help


=INDEX(' Data GRD'!M83:M85,MATCH('Quote GRD'!G11,' Data GRD'!L83:L85,0))

Well, unless I'm missing something, if you want a new part number to be like: 350FS-24,0,24,0,0,1,26,A,0,0,0,0

And, each of those elements come from a possible VLOOKUP or a MATCH and INDEX based on your input example, I think it's going to be quite a wild concatenation formula.
You could put the lookups in difference cells, then CONCAT them to your new part number. Otherwise, how else would you generate those elements?
