I have a large spreadsheet of employee data saved in a shared network folder so that others can access it. Starting about a week ago, anytime I enter a number in any cell, Excel adds two zeros to the end of the number. For instance, a 1 becomes 100.
When other users open the file on their computer and enter a number, everything is normal - no zeros are added. I'm guessing I inadvertantly enabled a function somewhere along the line, but have been unable to figure out how to undo the function.
Im basicaly pulling a report wherein the details will have a column as number.
It basicaly should be a three digit number. The tool will have the information as below.
But when im pulling out the report into excel, the zeros in the prefix goes away and the report looks like the below
I just checked the tools previllages and it seems that we cannot do anyting in pulling the data as it is in the tool.
So wht im trying to do is to save the report in a folder where i have placed a validation sheet which will have references of the parent report.
So when i open the report the reference will pull up the data and in here i would like to add a validation which will add "0" in the prefix if VNO is a 2 digit number or "00" if the VNO is a one digit number.
I'm pasting data from an external source into Excel. The data is in hh:mm:ss format. However, when the source data has zero hours it only displays minutes and seconds preceded by a colon. For example, 5 cells of data in a column might look like this:
:29:28 :31:50 1:15:17 :05:47 1:19:36
I need to run simple calculations on these times, but the cells without an hours value paste into Excel as text format. What are some ways to add a zero before the colon in Excel?
I have a list of about 1,400 numbers ranging in different lengths. What I'm trying to accomplish with a formula is to remove the single letter at the end of each number (not all numbers have them) and in addition to removing all zeros at the beginning of the number (again not all numbers have them).
Here is an example...say I have the following 5 numbers:
8014554 45678456 87451245 0008014554b 0008014554c
And what I need my formula to do provide is the following results instead:
8014554 45678456 87451245 8014554 8014554
So far I have started with the following =LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-1), but that will always remove the last character (number and letter).
I have a code which displays the values of R2, S2, T2, and U2 in one cell (J2). R2, S2 and U2 are all letters, but T2 is a 2 digit number. If there is a leading zero in T2, then in the display of J2, the leading zero is gone. so if the value of R2 is K, S2 is M, T2 is 01 and U2 is S, then I would want it to display KM01S, but it is only displaying KM1S.
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.
i have a header row that i want to transfer to a new spreadsheet. here is my exact setup to make it more clear:
Sheet1 - 001 PM Usage$% Sheet2 - 022 PM Usage$%
i have dozens of these rows, and i want to set up a auto rename for the header row on sheet 2 to rename itself like this:
Dim the value from header row on Sheet 1 (001), and rename the header on Sheet 2 (022), keeping the remaining contents intact (this is important because i want to use the same function for other headers which varies).
what i am doing now is dumping the value of the first cell into a variable, but as it stands it doesnt store 001, it stores 1... stripping the zeros, which makes it more complicated.
i thought perhaps i should dim the first 3 characters in the header as a string, and rename the first 3 characters in header 2, which i think would be the most efficient, but i dont even know if that is possible.
I have ID numbers that sometimes starts with one or more zeros and when i try to paste a string containing ID numbers that starts with a zero, excel converts it to a number thereby deleting the leading zero(s). Is there any way to force excel to keep the leading zero when i paste from the clipboard?
I have tried setting the format for a column as text using xlSheet.Columns("D").NumberFormat = "text" before pasting to try to force excel to keep the leading zero but the ID# comes out unreadable as "############". I have also tried formatting as "General" and custom formatting the column before pasting but have been unsuccessful thus far. I've seen other programs accomplish pasting numbers with leading zeros but how do you do this?
I have a column of numbers with one decimal point and some blank entries too. I need to convert all the numbers (including the zeros, but not the blanks) to two decimal points. Any idea on how this can be done?
Examples: 0.1 needs to become 0.10, 0 needs to stay 0, a Blank cell needs to remain Blank.
So if I have this data in a column you notice they have different length. Now I want my macro to add leading zeros until the length of all occurrences is 4.
I know for numbers you can do a range.numberformat = "0000".
But this won't work for B74 because (obviously) it will not be recognized as a number.
I know in a formula you can do it with the command TEXT. However I do not want to create extra columns I want something to alter it in place just like the numberformat does but then for numbers and text.
I am using Excel 07 with Vista, and creating a spreadsheet in which users will be inputting a record into every row.
There is a row that requires a number to be entered, where some of the numbers will begin with 0 or 00 or even 0000. I want to make sure no-one incorrectly enters a letter, however with data validation set to whole numbers, it formats the cell to change an entry of "005667" into just "5667". There is no set length for the field.
The only way to have "005667" is the change the column to text, but then obviously that defeats the whole purpose!
I need a formula to drag down the attached that will place zeros infront of any numbers that don't have 9 digits. so if a part number consists of 6 digits then i need 3 zeros in front of it, if a part number consists of 9 digits then i dont need any zeros proceeding it.
I am having a issue with adding to string values. Basically I have created a variable that will take the value of a Column. This Column number will need to be moved to the next column and so on. I dont know if I have explained that very well. I will give a example
Say Column = "C" I need to add the a variable that has taken the value "C" and change it to "D". The variable will only ever be 1 character long. How would I add to the ascii value of the variable so that the value changes up to the next letter. This will have to work if they enter lower case aswell.
I know this seems a simple task but I cant for the life of me find out how to add the ascii values.
with the data in the attached sheet, I create several different pivot tables that need show the count of the information in the columns M:DU. My issue is that the data is sent to me from a third party and the columns contain zeros that cause the counts to inflate.
What I would like to be able to do is run a macro that will search out any zeros in M:DU and replace them with a blank cell.
Unfortunately the number of rows increases with every monthly reporting cycle so the macro would need to be able to accommodate for that.
I was able to find the syntax to add a cell within a text string but I am having a formatting problem. The cells which I am adding were using formulas that left decimals. Although I turned off all of the decimals on the cell, the values when I used the cell within the text string included all of the decimals and in some cases 6 or more decimal places. Is there a way to keep the formatting of the cell?
I have a field that contains the following: 012100002030
I need a formula that will tell me whether or not the string contains a number higher than 2 or whether or not it contains more than one 2.
001000002011 111111000022 401110000000
the first loan would not meet the criteria as it contains no number higher than 2 and only contains one 2. the second loan would meet the criteria as it contains two 2's. the 3rd loan would meet the criteria as it contains a number higher than 2.
Iíve created a formula for this statistic and Iím happy with the results. Because Iím working with formulas, my only problem is the unwanted zeros. How do I hide zeros that show up automatically (i.e. #3 [blank] and Nov 09-June 10)? I can hide the numbers, but if I enter a zero to one of my future statistics it will not appear and I donít want that to happen. Is there a way to hide those automatic zeros without affecting my real zeros?
