I use a software to find relationship between some variables. this software can export results (excel mathematical formula) to a text or excel file. I need use this formulas in my VBA codes. but I should convert about 100-150 formula each time, hence this is very time consuming and hard to do that manually. I wondering if there is any macro code or third party software for that?
I am about to take on a rather large excel project for our company. The first part is coming up with how to deal with our drafting department's length inputs. In this project, our users will be entering lengths in a unique format. I have to convert that unique format to a standard Foot-Inch-Fraction format.
To try to keep the file size down and keep the complexity down, converting a cell formula to VBA so i can run this on a group of cells rather than repeating my code downward multiple rows on multiple sheets.
It is either this or come up with my own font that will convert it for me but I do not know where to start with that. How to take a stab at converting this to a VB code i can run?
A3 = 1.0108 B3 = 1'-1 1/2"
The code in B3 looks like this:
An explanation of the unique format we use in our drafting department:
Basic Feet, Inch and Fraction format = 0 . 00 00 = Feet . Inch Fraction
The numbers left of the decimal point are feet. The first two numbers to the right of the decimal point are inches and the next two are sixteenths of an inch.
I have put together an excel sheet for how how long a part is on a particular machine. If there are multiple operations on a machine, I separated the operation times with a comma in the cell. I am now trying to get a sum of the total time the part is in a machine. I cannot just use a sum since the commas change the format from number to text. I was hoping I could do a substitution where I change the commas to plus signs and stick an equal sign in front of it and somehow get it to be recognized as a formula instead of a text string. Even then, I would still have to do a sum for the entire row. This is what I have as an example
_______Machine 1______Machine 2______Machine 3_______Machine 4_______Machine 5________Total Time Part 1 _____20________ 10, 10, 10_________________________________________________________50 Part 2 ____15 ____________30____________________________10_______________________________55 Part 3_______________________________5, 15, 60, 10________________________5________________95
I need a column for summing the row of times (Machine Time). It doesn't need to be a one-cell solution. If I need to add a sheet to the file to do operations on the data that is fine. Again, I do not want to use VBA code. I already have a solution in VBA and am trying to do it in the worksheet only. I can get a substitution working to get a single cell into a format like 10+10+10, but that's the easy part of the battle.
I have VBA code the extracts data from a source and puts it into excel. I need to change the format of some of the extracted data so i can use it for a VLookup formula. Reference the attached example. Columns A AND B have the extraced data which are dates. In Columns C and D or E and F I have typed what I would like the data to look like so I can use in a Vloolup formula. Is there VBA or a formula that word change the format of the dates in Columns A and B to look like C and D or E and F. The changed format could be moved to any new cells or rows.
I received assistance from NBVC for combining data from two cells. Post http://www.excelforum.com/showthread.php?p=2135144. I need to convert the formula into macro code. I thought I would be able to convert it on my own, but running into some troubles with run time errors. Here is the Excel formula, which is working fine.
I'm having a slight problem as I cannot find a way to translate the following code from my worksheet formula to VBA: =IF(LEN(A1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"-",""))=1,A1,MID(A1,1,FIND("-",A1,FIND("-",A1)+1)-1)). The code takes a value from one cell and takes the part that I need. There are two main types of inputs, they are in the form:
The lengths are variable, but for the sake of showing you an example I have simplified it to the previous. The formula takes the part of the string that is before and after the first hyphen and puts it in the cell next to it.
I wanted to know if there is any way possible to get vba to insert a formula in a cell to each worksheet in each workbook in a folder and then using loop to extract all the info from each worksheet of each workbook in same folder into a master workbook?
This is my first time posting and though my knowledge of excel is very good - I sue it daily my knowledg of VBA is restricted to a macro that I've borrowed from former job. It basically puts data from a source file into a template file (both excel) and saves teh template with the specified filename. It does this for 40 different schools with different data. I send out these reports to schools as PDF reports and I'd like the VBA code to convert the files autmatically, within the same macro that creates them. So basically after running the macro I want to end up with 40 excel files and 40 pdf files.
I have been working on some codes recently. As one of my code creates a word file using some values from excel. All I want is, is there any way i can create a word document a normal word document and than copy the material in vba including the codes such as font, bold, size everything?
I received a solution to a question recently whereby I was instructed to use the text-to columns function to solve a problem I was having with a column of dates.
Convert Dates To Another Format
The solution provided was; Select Data > Text to Columns > Next > Next > Column Data Format > Date.
The solution works fine when performed manually but if you perform this function while recording a macro, the crucial piece that changes the date output is not captured by the recorder so when you run the macro nothing happens.
To expand on how I recorded it, after starting the text to column dialogue and pressing Next twice, the dialog provides me with a drop down selector where I am able to change the date format from the default DMY to the desired MDY which - when selected manually - fixes my problem. However, when I record a macro while performing this action the date format choice I made is not being recorded in the macro output so when I try running the macro later on the original data, nothing happens.
The recorded macro ends up looking like this; ....
I have a lot of code and equations that run this program in Quick Basic. I need to basically make the same program in VBA. I was wondering if there is an easy way to transfer the equations and code to vba and make a functioning VBA program, which would replicate the current Quick Basic program.
I'm trying to set up a stocktake sheet for one of the business' I work for. We use a letter = number cost pricing code on our products. ie: H=1, A=2, R=3, D=4, T=5, O=6, G=7, U=8, E=9, S=0. I would like to have 4 columns where A contains the qty, B the alphabetical cost code, C the deciphered numeric per each amount and C being the total price (ie column A x C).
In column A and B I have text representing an Entity and its Intercompany, respectively. In column C I have concatenated the two. So now in Column C, for example, I have "BillTom" in row 1 and "TomBill" in row 900.
I need Excel to convert the text into some sort of code, ASCII or number that shows they are EQUAL. I need something that shows "TomBill" and "BillTom" are the same thing, just in a different order.
I cannot build an IF formula or use Find/Replace, as I will have thousands of these types of combinations.
I currently have a Tab named "Rent by Month 3-08-5-29" containing the monthly rent amount for 700 locations for March 2008 - May of 2029 with the layout seen below.
A B C D E Shop# 3/1/2008 4/1/2008 5/1/2008 6/1/2008 ETC.. 2 $5000 $5000 $5000 $5000 3 $3000 $3000 $3000 $3000 4 $7000 $7000 $7000 $7000 18 $4000 $4000 $4000 $4000 ETC... continuing down 700 rows and over 251 columns
What I need to do is convert this worksheet so it contains the same information but resembles the following layout. A B C Shop# Month Rent Amount 2 3/1/2008 $5000 2 4/1/2008 $5000 2 5/1/2008 $5000 2 6/1/2008 $5000 3 3/1/2008 $3000 3 4/1/2008 $3000 3 5/1/2008 $3000 3 6/1/2008 $3000 Etc....
