Adding A 0 To The Front Of A Number

Sep 8, 2008

I have a worksheet to keep track of products. I use an SKU column with a Unique Number to keep track of those items on the shelves.

When I started my project I never imagined that my database would grow as large as it has. I started my SKU numbers with 80000, never suspecting that I would get to 90000. I am now at 125700. Many items have been removed / sold so it only encompases only 15500 rows.

On the site that I sell these Items, the SKU's when displayed start with 100000 and go to 125700 where 80000 is next and goes to 99999? ( or the reverse depending on which tab I choose ) Not sure why this is but there is nothing I can do to change the way they do it so I must find a way to change my system. With all the 80000 - 99999 items numbered - changing them to 6 digit 125700+ numbers would be a huge undertaking so I would like to add a 0 in front of each 5 digit Number in my SKU Column. That way my items will show 080000- 125700 instead of starting in the middle.

I do keep the column my ascending order so it is currently formated as a Number. I do at times copy an paste or pull ranges items by SKU numbers to mark down or modify.

When I place a 0 manually in front of 80000- it disappears when I move from the Cell.

If I change it to a TEXT cell- it stays in place.

Excel help doesnt answer my dilemma-- nor does my book.

I see there are masks etc -- or is just text OK ? (as I stated - I do use an numbered order or range to identify groups of items at times )- if text is OK, what is the best way to add a 0 to the start of each 5 digit number other than individually ?

There are Gaps in my sequence so I cannot just replace the first cell with 080000 and pull down.

Left Formula Read Zero If In Front Of A Number

Jun 20, 2012

reading a zero number in a cell

but if I write at D1 the formula is = right(A1,1) the number comes out is 0 (zero)

Inserting An Extra 4 Zeros To The Front Of A Number In A Cell

Jun 19, 2006

I need to add an extra four zeros to a number in a cell - in this case an ID number, so that i can do a lookup from another list. Basically what i have is two lists of ID numbers in a field of a database, in one i have the correct display/format, so that a number would look like 000054454545. In the second list however the number is only shown as 54454545, due to differences in the programs which imported them. I would like to know if its possible to use a function or macro in excel to basically insert the four zeros onto the number ie 0000 + 54454545 = 000054454545 so that i can do a lookup of one for the other.

Insert Text In Front Of Text OR Number - User Defined Format

Sep 24, 2008

I can't seem to make user-defined format that puts a text in front of a number and/or a text.

Let's say I have A1: 13, A2: texttext A3: text7 and I want to format a lot of cells to "Ilike 13" / "Ilike texttext" / "Ilike text7"... ie add the same text in the front of the cell, no matter what the content is.

I did manage it seperately, with "texttext" @ for text and "texttext" # for numbers, but what's the general one?

Getting Plus Symbol To Appear In Front Of Appropriate Values

I am trying to create a custom number format that will put a plus sign in from of the value in a cell if the value is positive.
Here is what I have been using:

+#,###;-#,###;"On Forecast"

There have been a few problems with this. Firstly, the values are have two decimals, and I have not been able to adjust it accordingly. Secondly, there are some cells that contain only a zero, and the custom format above changes the zeros to 'On Forecast. Other than these two issues, that custom format works.

How To Bring Different Application To Front Once Launched With VBA

What I have is a sheet with Command Buttons on, and one of them when clicked launches another application which has a log in screen.

I can't for the life of me get it to bring that application log in window in front of the excel application when it runs.

I have tried various ways of sending Excel to the back once the button is clicked, but just can't get it to work.

Ideally, once clicked the new application log in window will come up in front of excel, and set focus on the Password box, is this impossible to do just from inside excel?

Creating A GUI Front End For An Elaborate Calculator

Nov 4, 2007

I have a very elaborate excel file that will calculate a price for our customized product. The user enters figures into about 15 fields, and hundreds of calculations take place and give the user a unit-price for that item.

Further, this excel workbook contains 3 queries to our enterprise database that get updated on opening.

What I want is to have a front-end GUI form that the user accesses like an html page that can be viewed internally by only users withing the intranet.

The main point here is that I have very sensitive information in the workbook. The last thing I want is for it to be emailed to our competition. Protection is not an option either, because I heard it can be easily cracked.

I want my user to access the excel spreadsheet without ever getting their hands on the original.

Maybe this thing should have been written in some other software package all along, but this is what I have to deal with.

How To Print Cover Sheet In Front Of Database

Jan 21, 2013

I have 36 pages of names, addresses & contact info ETC that I want to print. I have a printer that offers a cover sheet in the print setup.

My list of names addresses ETC takes up two full pages of paper for each name. There are 16 columns across the sheet that contain data for each entry. I would like to print this so that I can turn the pages like an address book and see all of the data for a given set of contacts on each two page spread. So what I need to do is print the first half of the contact info on the inside of the first page and the second half on the next page and so on.

How can I set this up?

Pulling Data Foward To The Front Sheet

Mar 7, 2007

I am working on a project for a monthly report. My back sheets have (or will have) 12 columns of info for monthly income/expense for multiple companies. The front sheet will have 2 columns, one for the past month & one for cumulative.

Obviously the cumulative is an easy one to pull off, but how can I make the correct column show up for the current (last) month I am working on.

Rather than make it tied to the actual date of input, I have used an approach in the past with a "sum if" formula for a single reference where =sum if(b6:b6,a2,a6:a6) but I'm not sure how to make it work for 12 references. Can this be done?

Remove Front Zeros & Add Space Before Last 2 Characters

Jun 13, 2007

I want to remove the front zero(s) from the front and put a space before the last two letters for the following column of data in Excel:

0001MG
0020MG
0100MG
1000MG

Final result will have this format and the data are right aligned.
1 MG
20 MG
100 MG
1000 MG

The numbers can vary (e.g. 0150MG, 0025MG,etc.) but the arrangement is always the same: four figures for the first 4 characters and two letters for the last two characters.
The format of the cells containing the data is: “General”

My table has 7 columns and these data are in the 5th column in a worksheet called “ProductSummary”. The number of rows for the records can vary from 10 to over a couple of hundred.

How can I use VBA to: 1) automatically select the table range in that worksheet and reformat all the data in the 5th column.

Minimum & Maximum Of ScrollBar Back-to-front

Oct 2, 2007

When I draw a vertical Scroll Bar and set the Min and Max in Properties, the Min gets set at the top of the Scroll Bar and the Max at the bottom. This seems backward to me, but it's probably an issue with Microsoft's programming. To get around this, I've entered the Max value in the Min and the Min's value in the Max. This allows the Max value to be at the top of the Scroll Bar and the Min at the bottom, but I was wondering if this is anathema in the world of coding, and could I be setting myself up for coding problems down the road?

Bring Picture In Front Of Text For School Report?

Dec 11, 2013

I work as a data administrator in a high school in England. I've only been doing the job for about 8 months but a lot of the processes we go through could be better automated via the use of macros in Excel and Word.

Basically we have school grade reports that come from our MIS database that are stored as a Word template, which are then exported into Word as an .xml file. However, they don't come with the photographs of the students on the reports, so we have a Word List Report with every student photo (split into year groups) and run the following macro, which allows you to pick a folder where the reports are stored and match the photo to the report via the school admission number. It is then inserted into the report using a Word bookmark to place it in the top left corner.

VB:
Sub InsertPhoto()
Dim myFile, myFileNewName As String
Dim PathToUse As String [code]....

This works fine but I would like to be able to automatically format the photos so that they have 'In Front Of Text' wrapping, which we need to keep the templates from messing up. It would also save me accessing nearly 1000 school reports and manually editing each photo.
