# 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.

I have a list of numbers with 2, 3, and 4 digits. Is there a formula that can recognize if there are only 2 digits, it will add 2 zeros in front of the number.

For example,

47 will become 0047

234 will become 0234

1234 will become 1234

reading a zero number in a cell

here an example :

on Cell A1 = 01

on Cell B2 = 10

so I write at C1 the formula is =left(A1,1) but how come the number that comes out is 1 not 0 (zero) ?

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

how to make the formula that can read the zero in Cell C1?

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.

I need to know how to remove characters from the date field in Excel.

Example:

9/12/1975 - I need it to read 09121975.

I also need to know how to remove characters from a social security number without removing the zero's in the front.

Example:

012-34-5678 - I need 012345678.

I've got a problem involving several Dim'd Variables needing to be added up, they're all Dim'd as Variants though as they can be either strings or numbers at any time.

I need a formula (VBA) to add them up (to add their actual numeric values - not just a "1" if they contain a number) and ignore them all together if they contain string values.

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?

I have a form that requests random info. All this information is saved to a worksheet. I would like to give each transaction a reference number. In order to do so I would like each time a new record is saved to add 1 to the previous reference number. Also I would like to start the transaction with a unique identifier "ie. rn1001".

I have two groups of data? I selected the cells in yellow and defined the name of those cells as group1. I want to be to do absolute value of individual cells and add them up. I tried pressing shift control and enter and it still isn't giving me a number. I can do it if the numbers are next to each other but if they are separated by a row it won't let me.

I'm trying to add plus 1 to a cell from another cell but it doesn't work because the number starts with a letter. I do want to keep the letter in there for a reason so removing the letter to make it work is not what I want.

Example:

Code:

ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Invoice").Range("H5").Value = ActiveCell.Value + 1

Is it that I need to declare and set the ActiveCell value as a string or something?

You will probably find this very easy but I am having all sorts of trouble making it work as I want to! Basically I need to do the following procedure...

1) Open an Inputbox to collect an eight digit number

2) Insert a column in A:A

3) In A1, enter a col header (URN)

4) In A2, enter the number that was collected in the inputbox

5) Enter sequential number from A2+1 to the last row

Ideally, this would be randomised, so after stage 2 do RAND(), sort, and clear contents, but if I can get the main part right I'm sure I can work that out!

In the IAF tab, last one on sheet, I want to highlight a cell if on the Day tabs there is anything in column E, this will be text e.g. LAD, LE, E, AD, LC or NS, and in the same cell show the number that appears in column J of the day tabs, the excel sheet I'm working is to large to upload, if I delete some of the tabs all of the formulas go out of kilter. If Joe Blogs was at work on Day 1, the corresponding cell in the IAF tab should be yellow, if the supervisor monitored Joe's work on Day 1 the same IAF tab cell should remain yellow and show the number that is placed in column J on Day 1 for Joe Blogs.

I have managed to upload an amended copy of the file : Job PSS MASTER - v3 6 AMENDED.xlsxâ€Ž

I'm working on a complex A/R aging summary. So Ill have couple of question, but right now I'm trying to have excel automatically keep track of the A/R process. For instance every business day I would like the number of days the Invoice is outstanding to go up by 1. So when I get to work on monday the invoices that have been due for 20 days will now show 21 without me touching it.

I have attached an example that Colum A needed to be converted to column B (which I done it manually).

I want to create a formula that will refer to the cell I want by adding a number to the cell reference, not to the contents of the cell. For example, lets say that the cell C11 holds a value of 22. I want to add 4 to C11 to get my formula to reference cell C15, I don't want it to add 4 to the contents of C11 which is 22 and would give me a result of 26. I have a large spreadsheet and I can't just fill down the way I have it now and I don't want to have to retype the formula every time.

Im trying to develop a formula that sequentially numbers in column a depending on if there is a value in column B

We have documents at work that have alot of text with random spacing between that needs a sequential reference number so would like the formula to be able to look at the value in column b and if its not blank add a number . I would like this number to be the previous cell above + 1

the formula ive started looks something like =if(B10""), ???????,""

can not get excel to reference cell the last cell above with data.

I'd like to add a number of calendar days to a date shown on Col A

I have 2 columns

a margin with a row number --- and Col A

When I try to add say 50 to the Col A ie =A261+50 to get 50 cd from cell A261 ----

I get a # problem

Tried to place 50 in a cell and then add the 2 cells but got the same result -- #

Can I use the margin row number to add to -- this would work well as I'd get the Row number which would also be the date.

I have a very long list of international phone numbers in a .csv format that I need to put a zero in front of each one. We are doing an international autodialer campaign for an upcoming event and need the zeros at the beginning to pay for the call. How do you get around Excel not allowing a zero at the front of a number and the .csv format not allowing you to save certain formats? I've been searching the archived posts for a hour now and can't find anything on this!

Here is an example

1.14478E+13

1.1448E+13

1.14417E+13

1.14421E+13

1.14421E+13

1.1448E+13

I import via copy paste into excel from a timekeeping programme the following time I have worked each day, as an example:

Mon 7h 55m

Tues 6h 30m

Wed 7h 24m

etc

Is there a method of changing this in excel to work out the number of minutes I have worked each day? The timekeeping programme does not let me alter any parameters, so h & m is what I have.
