Avoid Repeating Numbers In A Small Range

May 4, 2007

I have three cells in a column. A1, A2 and A3. There are only 4 possible numbers that these can have in them, 0,1,2,and 3. Here is the catch. None of them can repeat, although they can be in any order. And the column may only have data in the first cell or the first two or all three. Is there a simple macro that will alert me to when a number is repeated? It needs to be a macro rather than a apreadsheet function.

Average Numbers In Table Containing Numbers And Letters?

Jan 27, 2012

I have a spreadsheet wtih a number of rows that contain answers to different criertia in each column.

The row may therefore have cells that either have numbers or letters.

Column A will be the title of the row.

I want to write a function to find the average value of the numbers in any row with title 'x'.

So it would look down column A, and look for those called 'x', and then average all the numbers across all those rows.

I have tried to use =averageif, but I think the fact there are letters in the cells being assessed (which I just want to be ignored) creates an error.

VBA Read Dates As Numbers?

Sep 23, 2009

I have a userform that has several textboxes and checkboxes. Some of the textboxes read and display dates from certain cells. I have the checkboxes conditionally formatted based on the data in the textboxes. However it doesn't seem to be reading the dates as a value. Here's an example of my issue to make it clear for you:

txtBox 1 = 01Sep2009
txtBox 2 = 01Oct2009

What I need is for the checkbox text colour to change from black to red if txtBox1 < txtBox2. Here's the code I have in place:

Sum Cells Containing Numbers And Letters

Jul 8, 2014

I'm working on a function that will sum a row of cells containing letters and numbers. I am currently using :

=SUMPRODUCT((0&SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(B5:S5,"T",""),"TP",""),"TPE",""),"P",""))+0) as my base.

Right now the formula will work with T, TP, and P; however as soon as I type TPE I get #value.

Either way you get the point of what I am trying to do, however my cells can contain any one of the following combinations:

T,TP,TPE
P,PE,
E

Formula Used With Numbers And Letters

Jan 23, 2014

I am a school teacher trying to adjust my tracking sheet to calculate pupils levels. I am looking for 2 potential formulas that will do the following.

1 - In cell AE I would like to generate a formula that will take the data entered in cells J:5, L:5, N:5, P:5, R:5, T:5, V:5, X:5, Z:5, AB:5 and AD:5 and give an average level.

2 - In cell AH is it possible to generate a formula that will calculate how many levels of progress the pupils are making - In other words I need Cell I to be calculated against cell J to see how much progress the pupils are making - for example if in cell I:5, a pupil is was given a 3a, and then in cell J:5 is given a 4b, they will have made 2 sub levels of progress. As well as this, can that progress then be averaged out across cells I:5, K:5, L:5, M:5, O:5, Q:5, S:5, U:5, W:5, Y:5, AA:5 and AC:5 to give an overall number of of levels of progress? An then..... can I colour co-ordinate the cell so that if the pupils are making 3 or more sub levels of progress it turns green, 2 sub levels orange and 1 sub level red?

Levels work like this

3c
3b
3a
4c
4b
4a
5c
5b
5a and so on

Allow Only Letters In Cell (no Numbers)?

Oct 7, 2010

How do I do data validation/cell formatting so that only alphabetic characters can be entered and no numbers?

(We use the cell for First Name, Last Name, etc. and I don't want potential entries like Mr. 56565 55454 because the cells are formatted as text and allow alphabet and numbers.)

I tried =NOT(ISNUMBER(H6)) for Data Validation, but that didn't work.

Converting Numbers To Letters

Jun 26, 2007

We are doing a database conversion and I have been tasked with converting all our old promotion codes to a new system. The long and the short of it is this:

I am trying to write an equation that will look at two cells (say A1 & B1) which when put together could be one of the following numbers (01,02,03,04,05,06,07,08,09,10,11,12) and translate them to a letter (A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,J,K,M,N)

So 01=A, 02=B and so on...

I was trying to use if statements, but there are too many.

Force Use Of Letters And Numbers Only

Oct 23, 2009

I have an excel sheet where the user enters a bunch of info. In one of the cells, they enter an "account code" - this is then used to SAVE AS the account code.

The problem... if they enter things into this cell that causes the filename to fail (eg: *, /), the code errors out. I can error handle this in VBA at the time of the save, but I would rather prevent them from entering anything that is not a letter or number in the first place.

Dividing Letters And Numbers String

Jan 25, 2009

A given string of some letters (from three to five, six) is followed by a single number (1-4). Then it ends, or is followed by another such combination, up to a maximum of, let's say, four.

Example:
xxxx1
yyy3yyyy1
xyzxx1yxz4xzx1
xxx2xxx2xxx2xxx2

What I would like to do is to divide a given chain of characters into the smallest chains which contain only letters and one number. To the examples given above, I'd like to receive the following sets:

xxxx1
yyy3 and yyyy1
xyzxx1 and yxz4 and xzx1
... and so on

Is it somehow possible to do it with simple functions? Or is VB necessary (which sadly I don't know)?

I currently have cell B3 in a worksheet - able to except 2 data entries.

The user should enter either OPQ or BOT followed by numbers. How do i ensure that they only enter OPQ (O - Letter Not Number) followed by numbers, or BOT (O - Letter Not Number) followed by numbers.

i.e. OPQ87654321 NOT 0PQ87654321 or BOT12345678 NOT B0T12345678. The information has to be entered manually and not via drop down list as each number is unique to the OPQ or BOT.

Random Letters And Numbers In One Cell?

Aug 29, 2012

I have what seems to be a pretty complicated situation involving random numbers and letters. I need to generate random sets of this combination of 2 letters follows by 6 numbers (ex. AB123456). I need the final product to be randomly generated and non-repeated.

I have played with various methods of producing random numbers and random letters both repeated and non-repeated. The closest I can get would be a cell of randomly generated letters adjacent to a cell of randomly generated numbers which so far has been useless.

VBA or excel functions are both okay.
