0 In Front Of A Number

I have a question, how do i display a number 0 in front of another number? Example, I am working with these zipcodes and there is a 000213 but it only shows up as 213 in the cell. Is there a way for it to be 000213 with out me using the tilde sign `000213?

Adding A 0 To The Front Of A Number
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.

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

Zeros At The Front Of Numbers
i have to copy and paste values from an sap program over to excel spreadsheets, and I usually do about 15 at a time that end up in a column: 15 different cells. The value I am copying are ID numbers that all begin with zero and excel automatically removes the zeros at the front of each number. Is there a formula/process for preventing this.

Pulling Data Foward To The Front Sheet
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?

Creating A GUI Front End For An Elaborate Calculator
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.

Minimum & Maximum Of ScrollBar Back-to-front
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?

Remove Front Zeros & Add Space Before Last 2 Characters
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:


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.

Refernceing Cells: Formula That Looks At A Cell On A Front Sheet, And Then Returns The Contents Of That Cell As The Result If It Meets The Criteria
I have a formula that looks at a cell on a front sheet, and then returns the contents of that cell as the result if it meets the criteria. So for example this formula would be in Cell A1 on Sheet2 IF(SHEET1!A1,"New",Sheet1!A1,"-")

This formula is always in the same cell (different sheet) as the cell that it is looking at, down 1500 rows. Instead of having the formula named for each cell is there anyway to ask excel to 'look at this cell but on this other sheet'.
e.g IF(Sheet1!"This Cell" etc). That way no matter what cell you put the formula in it is always referencing the correct cell for the formula?

Find Cell Value Row Number & Use For Column Number

The problem is if I want display the values of that row first and then change it. If I want to change row 10 data how can I bring back the value in ROW 3 AND THE COLUMN VALUE? The next step would be to do the actual update if I want to change ROW 10 to "Ooi" and a sales value of 200?

This is what I have done so far:

Dim myRows As Integer

With Sheets("Mrt")

'Retrieve history information for row
For myRows = 4 To 49
If comboxDay.Text = Range("A" & myRows).Value And textboxdescription.Text = Range("B" & myRows).Value Then
textboxbedrag.Text = Range("C" & myRows).Value
chkBTW_Ja.Value = Range("D" & myRows).Value
txtNota.Text = Range("S" & myRows).Value
End If
End With

Formatting A Number Field To Hold A Specific Number Of Digits
I wrote an excel program in Excel'03 for a dental office to manage state assistance patients and one of the table columns is the state assistance number. The problem is that the program defaults to a number format when it is entered instead of a text format, which is what I want. The issue is that state assistance numbers are always 8 digits and when it defaults to a number field the program drops the required preceeding zeros.

For example the number 00123456 will sometimes show up as 123456, which is wrong. It's like sometimes it will show up right and other times it gets a butterfly in its brain and deletes those zeros irritating the receptionist here. So, how do I get the table to either stay in text format or set up a number format that keeps the preceeding zeros?

Formula Finding Number In Range To Display Another Number
Designated Cell = 7

1 10 .034
15 25 .072
35 45 .089

Output Cell = ???

I am trying to find a formula for the output cell. Suppose the designated cell = 7 due to formulas above it. So that number is always given but can change. I then need a formula for the ouput cell that says if the designated cell is greater than or equal to 1, and less than 10, then the output cell should equal .034. So suppose the designated cell = 18.2. Then I would want the output cell to be .072 since it is greater than or equal to 15, and less than 25. The template I am using has 23 rows of numbers like above. I didn't know how to do it for 23 rows though. If/Then doesn't work because it is 23 statements long (well over the seven limit) and the vlookup only works when the cell is equal to a number and not a range.
