I need to add 2 to 6 zeros to the end of string of numbers beginning in A2:

01

011

0111

0112

011901

The end result, all numbers must be 8 characters long.

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 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.

VNO005016017008019020021

But when im pulling out the report into excel, the zeros in the prefix goes away and the report looks like the below

VNO516178192021

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 have a column with data and I want to add, in each row, the following:

at the beginning of row:{color=blue}

and right at the end of the row: {/color}

so that

excel

becomes

{color=blue}excel{/color}

I tried to do this with the formula:

"{color=blue}"&A1&"{/color}"

which yields nothing.

I want to add blank spaces to a cell with text

My cells have up to 14 spaces

If a cell as 1 or 2 characters -I want to add 6 spaces in front of text.

If a cell as 3 or 4 characters-I want to add 5 spaces in front of text.

If a cell as 5 or 6 characters-I want to add 4 spaces in front of text.

If a cell as 7 or 8 characters-I want to add 3 spaces in front of text.

If a cell as 9 or 10 characters-I want to add 2 spaces in front of text.

If a cell as 11 or 12 characters-I want to add 1 spaces in front of text.

i have data stored like:

col1

XXXX1244 50

XXXX1519 60

XXXX1244 50

xxxxx1111 10

xxxxx1519 65

the last 4 caracters are numbers. I need to test these numbers and sum the corresponding values them in a single cell without adding new column(SUMIF like).

so in the above example I need to sum all ending at 1244 or 1519, therefore the sum showed in the single cell equals 225

to extract from a single cell: =VALUE(RIGHT(D8;4))

I tried to use an array formula but it seems to crash if a blank cell is in the array

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 have a column which contains a series of alphanumeric characters some start with the alpha characters and others end with them.

As an example ABS1234, 1234ABS, 12k34AB needs to be ABS1234, ABS1234, AB12k34. The number of alpha characters at the end will be a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 3. Is there some way that I can move the Alpha characters, at the end, so that they are always at the beginning of the string?

I am trying to get rid of the spaces at the beginning of text that is the result of a download from a reporting software package. I am using the Trim function but it does not work. It seems that it has something to do with the formatting. The first set of data of the download looks as follows:

SalesSales BreakdownSolenaceousCucurbitsLargeSeedIf I overtype the text in exactly the same way (thus keeping the spaces at the beginning), the trim function works. But this is not a practical solution.

The type of the cells is "2". I have tried copying the data as values to a different workbook but this does not help either.

This code is not accepting the values which is starting from strings like this

for example

bearing 15/16 IN LG, 1-1/16 IN OD, 11/32 IN THK,21/128 IN ID

19/128 IN LG, 2-3/64 IN OD, 1/2 IN THK, 5/64 IN ID

steel 15/16 IN LG, 1-1/16 IN OD, 11/32 IN THK,21/128 IN ID

19/128 IN LG, 2-3/64 IN OD, 1/2 IN THK, 5/64 IN ID

spares 15/16 IN LG, 1-1/16 IN OD, 11/32 IN THK,21/128 IN ID

[Code] .....

I have used this code below to split a large excel file into multiple sheets from matching column data, but now I need to split it by a partial match (set number of characters from the beginning) from beginning of the column data.

For Example:

[Code]....

So with the code provided below using column 3 I would get 10 different sheets since none of the data in the column is identical. I want to modify the code (or come up with new code) so I can set the number of characters to compare from the beginning of the data in the set column and split into sheets based on that. So if I set it to the first 4 characters in column 3 I would receive only 5 sheets sheets: Safe, Fail, Dont, Poop, & 21-4.

What are the modifications or new code needed for this? I have searched for a bit with no luck, just keep finding code to check the full cell data for matches in a set column like this code I have:

SPLIT DATA FROM ONE SHEET TO MULTIPLE SHEETS

[Code] ......

I have a macro that takes the column of data from D on Sheet 1, pastes it into A on Sheet 3, gets rid of duplicates and then, in B1, combines all the numbers from A into a comma-separated string. The only problem is that it puts a comma at the beginning of the string. Is there something I can do to make that first comma not be there?

I reqiure the formula to split the number into another cell(numbers will be no more than 2 digits), I already have the formula for the letters.

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 data (strings) which looks like this:

000000000001000

000000000392000

000000000003000

no I want to write a routine which delets all zeros from left to right untill the first "normal" number appears.

Result:

1000

392000

3000

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.

View 1 Replies View RelatedI have a summary worksheet consisting of columns that are referenced to other sheets within the same workbook.

If the cell in the 'referring' (original) sheet is blank then the forumula returns a zero instead of a blank in my summary worksheet, which is messing up some other calculations.

Is there a way to make these cells truly blank, or possibly into string variables instead, so that they do not interfere with my calculations?

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.

View 2 Replies View RelatedI've made an formula to concartenate some numbers:

In A1 the value is 0

In B1 the value is 0

In C1 the value is 6

In D1 the value is 9

In E1 the value is 5

These numbers will change acording to a formula, but:

In F1 the formula is =A1&B1&C1&D1&E1

but in F1 the result will be: 00695

How can i make the result in F1 to be 695 instead of 00695?

Is there a formula for adding zero's in front of numbers?

Example:

If a single number is found in cell B1 add two zeros (2 would become 002)

If two numbers found in same cell B1 add one zero (34 would become 034)

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?

Clipboard.SetText strMyString, vbCFText

Set xlSheet = xlBook.Worksheets("Sheet1")

xlSheet.Activate

xlApp. ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet. Range("A2").Select

xlApp.ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Paste

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 quick sample of data :

B74

B74

9

94

1

948

B74

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 have the below list of numbers that I need a formula to convert to text and add zeros in the front of the numbers where there are not 6 digits.

[URL] .... If you take a look at the picture, what I'm trying to do is add the list of Prices up so that I can differentiate the amount received in $ and in £.

I need to add up all the numbers that don't have a $ in front into the 1 cell, and all the ones with the $ in front into another cell.
