Changing Sort Order - First Text Then Numeric Values

Nov 3, 2011

Currently I have a macro set up that sorts a range.

It sorts numbers first in ascending order and then text comes at the bottom of the sorted range.

Is there any way of reversing this so that text appears first and then numeric values in ascending order below?

Sort Order And Text ..

Nov 20, 2007

I'm sure this has been asked many times before, but I can't seem to find an answer that works for my data. I have some data that is sorted by an ordered list (like a table of contents from an overly detailed book):


This list can be arbitrarily deep (although probably not more than ##.##.##.##), and because I'm using periods to separate the nested levels (can be changed), I've formatted it as text. This means when I sort the data using this column I get 1.11 before 1.2 (text sort order).

After lots of failed formula attempts I've resorted to using an additional column with hand-entered values to sort by so it will sort correctly:


but I'm hoping someone knows a more elegant way to do this, or at least to generate this column without typing so many zeroes!

Changing Order Of Text Based On Results?

Oct 7, 2013

I've attached a spreadsheet. I want the order of the sentence to change based on the numbers and whether they are positive or negative. Below are more details and the spreadsheet has numbers.

"Total expense for September was 8 higher (lower) than prior year, driven by a higher (lower) claims expense and admin expense"

This might be hard to explain: For the second part (starting from "driven by", I would like the variable that explains more of the positive or negative variance (in the example, claims) to come first.

Here is a different example

Total expense for September was 6 lower than prior year, driven by a lower admin expense (claims is not included because it is higher)

Maintain Sort Order Importing Text File

Sep 19, 2007

I am trying to create a Karaoke Song List in excel, which would show four columns on each page with Artist, Track, Artist, Track. I am importing a text file to do this. The problem I have is that I can import the file so that it puts Artist and Track going down, however, it would then need to go back to the top of the page to fill in the right hand side of the current page. Is there any code that retrieves the current print page number of the current cell (so that I can initiate the code to go to the top right of the current page and continue importing)? Or is there a better way of doing this?

Macro To Set The Order In Which Worksheets Should Be Printed (order Is Changing Daily)

Nov 29, 2008

I looked at threads realted to printing but wasn ot able to find something similar to what I need. So here is my problem:

I have a file with more than 100 worksheets (each sheet contains the invoice for one store). I would like to create a macro that would enable me to determine the order in which worksheets would be printed. How to do it?

Idea #1: the printing order would be based on the value in cell L1 that would contain the route number for each store. Stores belonging to the same delivery route will have the same value in L1. So, the macro should first print all sheets with 1 in cell L1, then print all sheets with 2 in cell L1 and so on...

Idea #2: Creating a separate data sheet with the list of all stores and their corresponding route number. Let's say info is contained in range A1:B150, where Column A contains the name of the stores and column B contains the route numbers. The macro then should look at that list to determine the printing order of the subsequent worksheets (the name of the store in column A would be the same as the name of the worksheet corresponding to that store).

Idea #3: sorting my 150 worksheets manually. It does not solve my problem fully, though, because stores do not always belong to the same route. So the manual sorting should be carried out daily and would not save time at all.

Returning Text Values From Text Or Numeric?

Jun 4, 2012

I have two (2) different values in the same column one value is text (INV) the other is a time date stamp 05/18/2012 10:48:32. The text i want to return in a seperate column for these two is if it is INV then the result is "PENDING" if it is a date 05/18/2012 etc. then the result would be "PAID" example:

Payment Status
05/08/2012 10:30:12
05/17/2012 08:27:37
and so on...................

Averaging Text With Numeric Values

Feb 26, 2008

Are test have some text values RA = 0 and A= 0.5 as well as numeric values. I am currently using the formula =IF(COUNTIF(A1:A13,"A"),(COUNTIF(A1:A13,"A")*0.5)+SUM(A1:A13))/COUNTA(A1:A13) which is not very good at all, but it works for this instance. I also use the formula in B2 =IF(A1="RA",0,IF(A1="A",0.5,A1)) as a helper column but I need a stabile formula with out a helper column that will allow me to average text and numeric values. In the future, they are going to expand the text values part i.e. B = 0.3, BD = 0.2 etc....

Sort Command - Custom Order Or Sort Ascending Or Descending

Oct 8, 2006

Is it possible to make excel sort ascending or descending but from mid way through alphabet and then loop through the alphabet again. for example. If Cell A1 had "A" in, it would sort as normal.

Cell A1 = A
Cell A2 = B
Cell A3 = C
Cell A4 = D
Cell A5 = E

If Cell A1 had "C" in, it would sort from "C" through the alphabet and then loop to the start of the alphabet as shown below.

Cell A1 = C
Cell A2 = D
Cell A3 = E
Cell A4 = A
Cell A5 = B

Using Sum Product On Cells With Numeric And Text Values

May 29, 2013

I'm trying to find out exactly how I can use sum product on cells that have text and numeric values. Here's my sample data (6 points):

TN FX1576 20, TN FX1577 25, AZ FX1577 30, AZ FX1577 35, FW FX 1577 40, and FW 1577 45.

I wish to do the following: I want to sum all of the right numeric values based on the first two text values(TN, AZ, or FW). I want to sum these numbers to their respective total cells at the top of the page. So far I can sum the numeric values fine using the following formula: =sumproduct((right(range,2)*1) but when I try to differentiate between the respective locations (AZ, TN, or FW) I get an error message.

Attached is an example of what I'm trying to do along with the formula I'm currently using and yellow shading to represent where I want my respective sums to go.

Counting Unique Fields Containing Text And Numeric Values

Sep 19, 2012

I have used the advanced filter option in excel 2010 to display all the unique occurences of a list of names (column B) and then used the count function =COUNTIF(A$2:A$21,B2) to count the occurences of each name (column C).

However, excel did not manage to take into account the last 3 entries in column A (mir-23). I assume this is because it is a mixture of text and numeric values. How can I include this information in the grouping and counting?

Formatting Text Based On Numeric Values In The Next Column

Feb 12, 2009

I am wondering if it is possible to format a cell that contains text - based on a number in the cell next to it. Here is what I have:


I would like the word 'Results' to display in BLACK text because the mean score is in the range 3.0-3.9 (same goes for the word 'Morale'). I would like the word 'Buy-In' to disply in GREEN text because the mean score is in the range 4.0-5.0. Basically, the mean scores are calculated using formulas and I would like the color of the category to change based on the mean score number. Is there a way to use conditional formatting to do this? Or another way to automatically make this work? File is attached.

Lots Of Text Data, Need To Assign Unique Numeric Values

Aug 28, 2009

Here's my situation.

I will post a rudimentary example:
Account Name/Column A
Truman school, San Diego
Truman school, San Diego
Truman school, San francisco
Truman school, Atlanta
Truman school, Atlanta

In column B, I would like it to assign a unique numeric id based on the TEXT only.

So Truman school, San Diego gets a string of numbers: 1234
Truman school, san fran: 1235
Truman school, Atlanta: 1236

My spreadsheet is about 6,000 records with a great deal of the above situation going on. So school names are identical with different locations assigned. I am trying to import to a database and don't want a lot of duplicate records. That's why I'm trying to assign a numeric value.

Counting Unique Text And Numeric Values With Date Range

Oct 3, 2011

I am finding many posting on this topic with unique numeric values and have not come across one in regards to a text value. The essence of the formula is looking through a list for unique email addresses and now I need to up it to a date range and eventually a store # range

I am using the following array formula to establish an overall count:
=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(LEN('[Data - Deliverables.xlsb]orders'!A2:A5000)>0,MATCH('[Data - Deliverables.xlsb]orders'!A2:A5000,'[Data - Deliverables.xlsb]orders'!A2:A5000,0),""), IF(LEN('[Data - Deliverables.xlsb]orders'!A2:A5000)>0,MATCH('[Data - Deliverables.xlsb]orders'!A2:A5000,'[Data - Deliverables.xlsb]orders'!A2:A5000,0),""))>0,1))

The date column is E:E.
The store number column is G:G

Changing Values To Text

May 28, 2012

i have a spreadsheet that has 3 shifts. its a weekly data sheet. i have 52 sheets for every week of the year. so far i have a "data" sheet aswell. this is the first sheet. I use this data sheet to generate the information or the other 52 sheets. example is you enter the date of the first monday of the year and it generates the dates on all of my sheets for the whole year. i would like to do something similar for the shifts. i would like to have a cell the enter the shift of the first supervisor on that first monday and have all the shifts generate. 1=nights,2=days,3=afternoons. but i do not want the number to appear i would like the word. the set up goes like this:

DATA E9 = the first number for shift to generate all other numbers

A5 = cell to display first shift
A22= cell for the next shift
A39= cell for last shift

on sheet1 i have A5 as =sum(DATA!E9)

i would like A22 to be the shift after example if A5 as 2 for days than A22 would be 3 for afternoons and A39 would be 1 for nights.

preferably displayed as DAYS/AFTERNOONS/NIGHTS

Changing Values Of X-axis, And Descending Order Axis(x-axis)

Feb 8, 2009

Two questions:

1) How do make values on x-axis as words? E.g. apples, oranges, etc.

2) Is it possible to have the numbers on x-axis in descending order? If I can figure out 1), I can do this as well, but it would be nice to know if it is possible to have the numbers on x-axis in descending order.

Wrap Text For A Column Without Changing Values

I'm trying to execute something like this: [URL] ......

but without changing the cell value... I basically want a button that will wrap/unwrap all of the cells in the "B" column with one click. If i have to do the cell range for every individual cell in column B that's fine, but I can't seem to make the above example work while keeping the cell contents the same.

Numeric Alpha Sort

Mar 5, 2009

I have an application where there is a column A with values of F1 through
F83. There is data in columns B,C,D,E,F AND G.

From time to time there is an addition in column A, the value being F1A or F2A etc.
The rows then have to be sorted so that F1A follows F1 and the next row would start with F2 rather than F10.

Alpha Numeric Sort

Dec 15, 2006

I'm doing a sort of product codes which are of different character length with some numeric and others alpha-numeric.

A small section of the sort is below.

I want it to end up like this:


But the sort ends up like this:


In other words, I would like product codes where the last character is a letter to be sorted ahead of product codes where the last character is a digit. The way Excel is normally set up, it sorts in just the opposite way.

Excel 2007 :: Copy Same Cells From Multiple Worksheets All Named In Ascending Numeric Order?

Jan 15, 2013

In Excel 2007, Windows 7 Home Premium, I am trying to summarise multiple worksheets into one sheet, creating a list in one column in this summary sheet that includes the cell contents from the same cell from each sheet. For example, my first sheet is called KCD183 and I want to list the value from KCD183 Cell A2 in my Summary Cell A2, then show KCD184 Cell A2 in Summary Cell A3 (i.e. the next row down). So my Summary sheet will list all cell A2s from all my sheets, 1 after the other down column A and will continue to add these for any new sheets I add.

I realise that I could just export the spreadsheet to Access and report on it from there, but I don't have the software!

Sort Text Into Rows By Multiple Delimiters / Values?

Nov 19, 2013

I am trying to consolidate an .835 raw text file that is full of receipts and payments into rows by specific values/characters. Once opened within notepad/text format, I figured out that the ~CLP is the referencing value/character used to break up each individual payment.

I need to somehow use the ~CLP as the value(s) to sort the text into new rows, with each row pre-leading with the ~CLP.

For example:
