Custom Number Format With Wrap & Text

Sep 14, 2007

I have been playing with custom formats recently and I'm wondering if there is anyway to make them wrap?

specifically I have several results that I have been formatting to show what they are related to

397235 visitors 392648 visitors 365487 visitors

I want these to display as visitors, but still be numbers so that they can be summed etc.
The problem is that I need the text to wrap so that visitors is on the second line in the cell. unfortunatley all i get is a ########## error to show the cell is not wide enough even with wrap text turned on.

Custom Number Format :: To Contain (and Show) Both An Interger And Text

Nov 29, 2009

I would like to format a row of cells. I want each cell in the row to contain (and show) both an interger and text. The interger will range in value from one to ~10,000. The text will always be two characters long...but these characters will change from cell to cell.

Elsewhere in the spreadsheet I will have a cell (w/ a formula) that counts the values of the intergers in the row, but ignores the text in each cell.

a procedure for format ing the cells in the row?

Custom Number Format For Negatives & Include Text

Aug 22, 2006

This is my formula and it returns: -55 bps.
=[ASK.xls]QTR!$AT$81&" "&"bps"

However, I want it to return (55 bps). I don't want to just add the parenthesis because in the future this formula could return a positive number. I tried to format the cell differently, but that did not work.

Custom Cell Format - Number Ending With Text String

Jun 13, 2013

How to modify a custom cell format to make data entry easier.

My goal is to have the output look like this: 'A12B-C20D: SET 10: Text string here'

Inputs needed are:

1-3 digit number between A & B
1-3 digit number between C & D
1-2 digit number after SET
Text string of variable length

Where I am stuck. So far I can get "A12B-C20D: SET 10:" to show up properly when 122010 is input. The custom format I am using looks like this: "A"##"B-C"##"D: SET "##": "

When I try to incorporate the "@" symbol the first part of the formatting goes away and the output shows up as "122010 Text string here".

I have tried:
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##":";;-;_@
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##": ";;@
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##":";_@
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##": ";;;@

Cannot Convert Numbers Stored As Text To Number Format

Dec 14, 2009

There is probably a really easy answer to this question but I cannot seem to figure it out. I need to calculate the sum of pages faxed on a fax report at my office on an excel spreadsheet which is downloaded from our server. It appears the file is not meant to be used in excel but it downloads as an "*.xls" file anyway. When I open the file I receive this message:

"The file you are trying to open, 'FaxCetailReport.xls', is in a different format then specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?"

The file is comnig from a trusted source so I select "Yes" and it opens just fine. There are just over 50 rows of info, one of them being the number of pages. In a blank cell I enter "=SUM(select rows)" and the result is a "0". I have converted the cells to the "number" format, no change. When I right click on the cells and select format, the protection tab on the right has the check box "Locked" checked and unchecking it does nothing, it is checked as soon as you go back in to the protection tab.

The only way around this is to manually retype the numbers in a cell next to the pages column, which is ok for 50 numbers, but I have some sheets where there is over 1,000 entries.

I tried dragging by the grip in the bottom right hand corner but it changes the first didit only. I tried to put it the numbers in the format


and using a custom format number to put in the extra zeros. This worked fine until I used a countif (or it may of been a lookup) statement in my code to look for 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0100 and it can't find it as the number is 100. Is there away around this that will save me typing in an awful lot of zeros.

Conditional Custom Number Format

Mar 6, 2009

I am trying to create a number format for formatting resistor value in their most commonly displayed form. For example 1,200 ohms would be displayed as 1.2k and 5,000,000 ohms would be displayed as 5M, and finally 5 ohms would be displayed as 5. I have been able to create a format that formats any 2 contiguous formats but not all three.

for example: [>999999]###.0,,;[<1000000]###.0,k;
or: [>999]###.0,k;[<1000]###

both work.(other similar criteria work as well) But if I try to put 3 conditions describing the desired formatting I get and error (containing no useful info) as I try to close the formatting dialog. Is there a limit to the number of conditions that can be used. Or something else I'm overlooking.

Custom Number Format - Em Dash For Zero

Dec 19, 2011

I know this works because I have seen it in a workbook at a client's office.

I need a custon number format to substiture an "em" dash for zero. An em dash is a hyphen with the width a the letter m. There is also the so called en dash tht is the width the the letter n. A search of the internet shows that to create an em dash in a cell that contains a 0 ("zero"), hold down the alt key and type 0151 on the numeric keypad. Typing 0150 insert a en dash.

I want to be able to set this up as a custom number format in the custom number dialog.

Hide Number One With Custom Format?

Feb 28, 2012

Instead of using conditional format, I would like to use a custom format to hide the number 1. Is this possible?

Basically only three things can be in this cell =IF(D8"",IF(D8="CIV",1.077,1),"")

I need to mask the 1, otherwise show the 1.077. The reason I am not using conditional formatting is because there is a condition on the cell already which applies a pattern style and a font will not match up to the pattern.

Custom Number Format - Percentage

Jul 8, 2014

I am trying to create a custom number format.

Here is what I have come up with: 0.00%;[Red]-0.00%

The problem is, it has no "," it would display as 23555555.6% or -2355555.6%

I need it to display as: 23,555,555.6% or -23,555,555.6%

How would this be written?

Additionally, I have occasion to "abbreviate" in the following format:

23.55MM% or 1.5M% or -23.55MM% or -1.5M%

For currency, I have it written in this manner:

Currency: [>=1000000] $#,##0.0,," MM";[>0] $#,##0.0," M";[Red]($#,###," M")

I just freeze when trying to convert to percentage.

Number/Text Format: Custom Formate "0000-0000-0"

Dec 4, 2008

I have this data 0123-4567-8 but in the formula bar it only shows as 12345678. When I looked at the format it has as Custom 0000-0000-0 and it would be correct. The formula that I used to extract the numbers without the dash is =LEFT(A3,4)&MID(A3,6,4)&RIGHT(A3,1) the result is 12345678 So when I reference this number to 012345678 I get the wrong answer.

But whatever I do, nothing seems to work.
Another cell with Left()-Mid()-Right() is no option for me....

Scale A Number Using Format Cells Custom?

Aug 6, 2009

I have a number in a cell of 1025132.36. I need to scale it down to this number with this formatting: 1,025.13 (Two decimal places with comma separaters)

Basically it is dividing it by 1000 or scaling it by 3 (move the decimal place to the left three places). I cannot use /1000 in the cell and I cannot reference it to/from another cell. I must use something under Format/Cell. I was trying to create a custom format.

I saw in another forum thread to use #.###. This does the scaling but then I cant make the number viewed with only two decimal places. Also when I tried to add comma separators for thousands it put a comma right before the decimal.

Can Custom Number Format Be Applied In A Macro

Jun 4, 2013

We have a macro that formats a report from our accounting program quite extensively (mostly moving text around). The last step is to select the entire worksheet and set the cell format to a custom setting #,##0.00_);(#,##0.00). We haven't been able to include this in the macro - we end up manually doing this step after the macro has completed. Is there any way to set this custom format as part of the macro?

Custom Number Format For Displaying MAC Addresses

Oct 18, 2005

I'm trying to create an Excel sheet to display MAC addresses in the following format -


However. the characters can be either letters or numbers. I've modified the "hh:mm:ss" template to accomodate the format I need, but it will not recognize letters for the obvious reason. Is there a wildcard character that I could use in this format or has anyone created a format that would meet my needs? If I can pull this off, it could mean a promotion.

Alter The Number Of Decimals In A Custom Format

Oct 24, 2008

is there any way by which you can alter the number of decimals in a custom format using just custom format process (ie no VBA).

For ex:

12 should appear as 12
12.1 should appear as 12.1
12.26 should appear as 12.3

Note 12 should NOT appear as 12.0

So point being adding the "m" is an irrelevance at this time - the key is to vary the decimal points essentially based on MOD(value,1) = 0

If you can (I'm really thinking you can't) let's extend it such that 12.1 should appear as 12.1 but 12.26 as 12.26

I know you can use [value>x] type rules but I'm guessing you can't use formulae in those rules ?
