Cells Revert Back To Letters Instead Of A Symbol

Sep 7, 2009

The code brings up the message box the way I need it to

At the bottom of the code in the standard module is what I changed.
In the message box. If the GDT button is clicked the GDT chart opens. If the Symbol button is clicked the Symbol chart opens. This all works.

But will I select a symbol from the symbols chart it will appear in the cell that is double clicked. but then end up as a letter instead of a symbol.

But, the gdt chart works perfect.

I thought Cancel = True Would do the trick but does not. Any ideas what is missing??

This code below is in the sheet module

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClicK(ByVal Target As range, Cancel As Boolean)
With Application
Cancel = True............

Revert (Bold) Underline Back To Normal

Jan 12, 2014

What I mean by my "bold" underlines:


Notice the difference between the bold underline and the normal ones. There is also some weird thing happening where in some cells, when I use the underline feature, it shows as a bold underline, but once I've pressed enter to move on to another cell, the underline reverts back to normal. If I select to edit (F2 or double-clicking) said cell, the underline becomes bold, and vice versa (s3lw.png).

All this started happening immediately after I did this (was just experimenting, and I have no idea what this actually does, or if it was the cause of those occurences): Insert > Symbol > Special Characters > No-width optional break. I did that to just one cell though, and now all this weird stuff is happening.

Removing Symbol From All Cells In Data

May 28, 2014

How to remove all the " symbol out of a string of data?

The " symbol appears at different places and i need to remove them all completely. the Find & Replace tool doesn't work because when you have say 3/4" and want it to just read 3/4 it automatically converts it to 03-Apr. even when you have changed the cell formatting to text.

Inserting $ Symbol Into Multiple Cells?

Mar 20, 2014

My current issue is that I need to enter a $ into multiple formulas before cell numbers without having to do it manually, is there a way to do this? I cannot drag the cell across with the $ already entered as this will change the cell reference in an adjacent cell.

If this is not clear, what my scenario is that I have a 250 x 2500 cell table. Going across the x axis the formula is: J2-AVERAGE(J$2:J$11) then the next cell K2-AVERAGE(K$2:K$11) and so on. I now want a $ to appear before J and K without having to manually insert $ into every formula, so that I can drag the columns down varying the column number.

Conditional Format Cells Containing Numbers And Letters - Ignore Cells With Number Only

Jul 11, 2014

I have a column of numbers and want to make sure everything has been entered correctly from our scanning software. Basically, I want to automatically highlight any cell that has any letter in it (e.g. z12o2 instead of 21202 or R705 instead of 5705), ignoring any cells that contain only numbers. I haven't had any luck using conditions based on formulas like =ISTEXT.

Calculating Distances Between Back-to-back Locations

Aug 11, 2012

I have a layout something like the following:



Where each (i.e., A1) represents a location. I have tried to use a coordinate system but this will not work for the back-to-back locations. (Assuming each location is 2 feet wide, For example A1 to C1 is 4 feet apart, not 2 feet (as Euclidean or rectilinear would calculate it as).

Would there be a way to incorporate an if statement for those locations that are back-to-back? As a rectilinear distance calculation would work as long as the locations are not part of the same "block".

Ultimately I am looking to have a matrix which contains all the distances between each location:

Excel 2010 :: Pivot Table - Manual Edits Don't Revert On Refresh

Oct 22, 2012

If a user changes some data in a pivot table and then refreshes the table, the changed values are supposed to revert to the source data, right? This does not happen in my pivot table.

Any changes made in the underlying data get transferred to the pivot table refresh, as expected. But if I change some values in the pivot table, followed by a refresh, then the cells that I changed remain the same unless I happened to modify the corresponding values in the underlying source data too. In other words, the refresh operation does not touch the pivot table except specifically where an update is driven by a change in the underlying data.

This behavior is different from what i remember from, say, excel 97 / 2000.

How To Send Object To Back So That Cells Appear On Top

Apr 25, 2014

I am using Excel to fill in information for W-9 tax documents. I have formulas on one sheet that pull from other sheets where the numbers for the form are entered. Currently we have to put the actual form in the printer. I'd like to embed the form into excel so that the numbers pulled by the formulas and the form itself all print. The problem I'm having is I can not get the form to sit in the background. The cells are hidden behind the form and do not show up when printing.

Count Letters In Cells

Feb 18, 2010

I have a spreadsheet filled with either "B" or "S" in cells. Its 500 rows long (starts from row 2) and its 839 columns wide, but the cells begin to be filled with B and S after column 11. I would like to count all B's and all S's in each column, and add them....it works for B;s as it counts them up and spits the result in row 503, just as it is supposed to. But the counter for S, does not work.

How To Get Cells To Only Have Upper Case Letters

Jul 30, 2014

Only have upper case letters.

I am trying to get certain cells to only have upper case letters.

each cell in the code will have a single letter typed in.

I would rather have it as an event code (change while it is typed), but I have not grasped the whole thing yet.

This code does not give me any errors, but it is not changing the lower case letters into upper case letters either.

Now what I would like to try and do is the same BUT.
using COL D (on LOG sheet) to find out when I went to for example "JTF"
be advised that COL D is a route, so there are many results in each cell in col d..

How To Count Back 4 Weeks Skipping Blank Cells

Feb 7, 2014

I am using excel to analyze stock changes. Yahoo spits out a column with dates and another with closing prices but occasionally inserts a row showing a dividend, something like this:

Date Closing price
12/30/13 120
12/23/13 118
12/16/13 119
12/9/13 117
12/2/13 115
11/25/13 116
11/22/13 dividend 0.23
11/18/25 116
11/11/13 115

In the spreadsheet, column A is date and Column E is closing price, such that the cell in column E where the dividend is listed is blank.

The problem- as I update data each week, the dividend row moves. How can I consistently figure price changes for 4 weeks and 13 weeks without getting messed up by the dividend row? Is there to auto delete the row or make the formula count down 4 cells in the price column, while skipping any cells without data?

Looking Back Through Cells In A Column To Find Specific Text(s)

Feb 14, 2010

In the attached sheet I need to check on the Destination in column B, and if it matches set criteria, divide the figure in Column E by 2. eg If LAX is the destination, then for any rows directly under LAX until the next destination appears, column E needs to equal column D divided by 2. If the Destination is not LAX, then Column E equals Column D.

the difficulty I am having is that there can be a variety of row numbers for each destination. I am having trouble creating a formula that can basically work backwards from Row-1 in column B until it gets to a text string, and check that text string against the criteria. so it may be row -1 up to about row -9 dependant on the number of flight times available to each destination throughout the week.

Difficulty With IF Function For Cells Containing Both Numbers And Letters?

Feb 1, 2013

I have a sheet with part numbers, costs and wish to add varying number to the cost in each row, based on a certain aspect of the part number:



In the example, 01/1X/2X/3X are the differentiating aspects of the part number. To rows in column A containing 01 (preceding the dash) I want to add nothing, 1X+.75,2X+1.5,3X+9.

I have researched the nested IF formula and can use it in a test as long as column A contains either numbers or letters. The problem I have is because there is both numbers and letters, the logical argument won't validate "if true". Here is my formula (omitting my attempts with parenthesis etc. around the letter in the logical argument):
