Format Formulas, Constants, Numbers & Text Cells Differently

May 8, 2008

I am attempting to write a VBA function that will add textual formatting to each cell that has content. I am just learning VBA; so far, as an example I have

Sub NewSub()
i = 1
j = 1
Do
Cells(i, j) = "'" & Range(i.j).Value & "',"
i = i + 1
Loop Until i = 40
End Sub

but, as I'm sure you'll notice, it does not work. In essence I want to wrap quotes and follow with a comma each cell that contains any content. The actual content test I haven't gotten to yet.

Change The Format Of Numbers & Round

Aug 23, 2006

I have to change the layout of my numbers. At the moment the number have 3 decimal places but rounded to two decimal places and are separated with a dot (value in excel is 272.664 but shown just 272.66). After the macro or excel formula the output should be 000000000027266. So the last decimal places should be deleted (but the amount has still to be rounded!!!), the amount should be without a dot and the number has to be always 15 characters long (like in the example the above just with ceros before the number) I tried it in Format Cells but I couldnít find anything. If I use the find and replace function to delete the dot, the third decimal place will be shown. Does anyone know if I can format it in excel or using a VBA code to change the number?

Detect Numbers In A Cell Range And Then Change Cells Based On What Numbers Are Found?

Feb 27, 2014

I'm going to be using a spreadsheet to keep track of where different people are at. So if Person 1 is in Room 3, I will stick a 3 in the box next to their name and then can look at the spreadsheet whenever I need and see what room they are in. When I'm deciding what room to put a person in, though, I need to be able to quickly glance at a list of Room #'s and see what one's are still available. So I have a bank of Room #'s in the spreadsheet....1,2,3, etc.

What I'd like, is some way to set this up so that when I put, for example, "3" in the cell next to "Person 1" the spreadsheet automatically removes "3" from the bank of available Room #'s and when I delete the "3" because the person has left, it adds "3" back to the bank of available Rooms.

Format A Cell That Has Numbers And Text?

Oct 2, 2009

I am a biologist that works with transgenic animals and I am using Excel to keep records of my mice. I would like to have a column that includes the age as calculated by the DOB of my animal on any given day.
Furthermore I would like for it to be smart enough to tell me in weeks for younger mice and months for older mice. If i do this, obviously i will need a txt string that says "x mnths" or "Y wks" or whatever.

i have come up with an if/then string that works - but for some reason it will not allow me to format the number of decimal places if i include text. here is the function:

=IF(((TODAY()-B6)/7)>12,((TODAY()-B6)/30.417) &" mnths", ((TODAY()-B6)/7) &" wks")
the B6 cell is the DOB of that particular animal.

so what this SHOULD shoot out is something to the effect of "4 mnths" or "3 wks"
depending on the age of the animal. any animal older than 12 weeks will express in function of months and any younger will be in weeks. however what i end up seeing is something like this: 5.81911431107604 mnths I dont need any where near that many dec places...and obviously this doesn't fit in any reasonably sized cell......

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.

Cannot Convert Numbers Stored As Text To Number Format

Dec 14, 2009

There is probably a really easy answer to this question but I cannot seem to figure it out. I need to calculate the sum of pages faxed on a fax report at my office on an excel spreadsheet which is downloaded from our server. It appears the file is not meant to be used in excel but it downloads as an "*.xls" file anyway. When I open the file I receive this message:

"The file you are trying to open, 'FaxCetailReport.xls', is in a different format then specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?"

The file is comnig from a trusted source so I select "Yes" and it opens just fine. There are just over 50 rows of info, one of them being the number of pages. In a blank cell I enter "=SUM(select rows)" and the result is a "0". I have converted the cells to the "number" format, no change. When I right click on the cells and select format, the protection tab on the right has the check box "Locked" checked and unchecking it does nothing, it is checked as soon as you go back in to the protection tab.

The only way around this is to manually retype the numbers in a cell next to the pages column, which is ok for 50 numbers, but I have some sheets where there is over 1,000 entries.

Pre Format Cells With Numbers

Nov 2, 2006

In the publishing industry we have what we call ISBN numbers you will see that every book has a unique number. For thee company that I work for the number always starts as follows -

978-0-7153-

This is followed by five numbers sometimes 4 with a letter i.e.

978-0-7153-12345
978-0-7153-1234X

Is it possible to pre format the cells in a column so that the 978-0-7153- part of the code would be there hiding in the background and all you have to do is type the 12345 to get 978-0-7153-12345 displayed?

Change Format Of Cells To Time Value

Oct 15, 2011

I have a consolidated sheet which I maintain to keep track of the scores of my team. Unfortunately from time to time, the format of all the cells is getting changed to "time" value. I do sometimes use an addin which I have downloaded from Straxx.com (excel password remover) and I am not sure if this add-in has anything to do with this.

I am having to change the format of almost 20+ columns every time this happens.

Cannot Change Cells Number Format

Jan 10, 2008

I cannot change the number format in a single sheet of my spreadsheet. I can go to format cells and select colour etc but it will not change the number format.

Another issue on the same sheet is that linked cells i.e cell b3 formula "=A3" displays "=A3" not the actual value in A3. Again, i cannot change the number format of this cell and yes, auto calc is on.

Whilst not wanting to offer a partial explaination (per the rules) just before this happened i was pressing a combitation of Shift+Control+` - not sure if that is relevant.

I want to get the sheet back to its 'normal' working order.

Is there anyway i can change the default format back to general? There is also a sample attached...The actual db is kinda more complex than that but there is a limitation of 40kb so...Is there any other preferred website to upload files?

Using A IF / IFELSE Statment To Change A Cells Format

Jan 11, 2009

I have been trying to get a formatting programme to work for well over a week and no matter what I try I seem destined to fail. I am trying to use an IF statement in VBA to format a cell if the result of the IF is true. The values in the cells being formatted have been generated from a VLOOKUP statment (looking at a table on another sheet of the workbook). I have tried to use conditional formatting but cannot get past the limit of 3 conditions.

Note in the code below I have values that may appear the same but to make them unique they have a single (or double) space before and after the character. Not sure if the code I have below is workable, if anyone has a better idea please let me know (its a little long winded). I am currently self learning VBA (through forums and the like) and below is the best I have come up with... however when I try to run it I only get a Run-time error 1004, application-defined or object defined error.

Change Cells Format Based On Selection

Feb 15, 2010

I have created a named range that includes raw data layed out in 4 columns (Finish Name, Fill Color, Pattern, Font Color). On a separate sheet, when one of the finish names is selected in a particular cell, I want the cells fill, pattern, and font color to change according to the raw data. Below is the vba code I am trying to get to work. However, it is not working. It does not break, but does not achieve the desired result. It looks like the variables are getting set correctly, but still not changing the cell when they are referenced. I am only testing it on the first finish color, as seen in the code. All of the rest are static values for the cell, but I want the values to be dynamic.

Sub SetFinishSeparatorColor()
ActiveCell = frmFinishSeparator.cboFinish.Value
Set rngTarget = ActiveCell
With Sheets("Pick List Do Not Tamper").Range("Finish_Cell_Color")
lngFinishCellColor = . Find(What:=rngTarget, After:=.Cells(1, 1), _
LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, _
SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False).Offset(0, 1)..............
