I've been asked to make an Excel spreadsheet for work that tracks each employee's gross earnings, deductions, and net earnings, as well as calculates the holiday pay. I'm mostly done, but I've run into a problem.
Holiday pay is 4% of the gross earnings. I've got gross earnings in column B, and the formula in the holiday pay column is =PRODUCT(BX,0.04), where X is the row (i.e. in row 4, it is =PRODUCT(B4,0.04).) However, if the cell in BX is empty, the holiday pay displays as 0.04. So for whatever reason, it is assuming that the value of an empty cell is 1. Now, I can solve this by manually entering 0 into every gross earning cell.
I wish to be able to change the default appearance of a cell's comment. Currently, the default font size is too small to be useful - is there a way of changing this setting, without reverting to a VBA tidy-up?
It involved opening a new workbook and changing the number of worksheets in a new workbook, cell sizes, font, and font sizes... and then saving the workbook in one of the system folders under the name "workbook" to change the default workbook attributes, or "worksheet" to change default worksheet attributes.
I am developing a form to get the user's name. I want to put some default text in the textbox where the user types their name. I want the form to delete the default text when the user clicks on the text box or after they start typing their name.
Attached is the form and code that runs the form : UserName.xlsmâ€Ž
I have a data table with multiple columns. Several columns have absolute formulas repeating in each of the rows. I would like these formulas to be the default ones in each of the columns whenever I insert a new row.
Unfortunately, whenever I insert a new row Excel automatically inserts different formulas, which do not appear anywhere in the table. These formulas used to be in the table, and at the time Excel asked me if I wanted them to be the default formulas for those columns - which I happily confirmed. As stated, I now have new formulas which I want to be the default ones, but I can't figure out how to set them as such. I even tried to turn off the auto-extend feature, and then back on, to no avail.
I have tried, through control panel - region settings etc, to change the default number of decimals to 0. I often use the Number format using the shortcut CTRL + SHIFT + 1 but then have to reduce the 2 decimals down.
I have recorded a macro to apply this kind of formatting but the disadvantage of this is that I cannot undo any actions before that point - which has gotten me into some trouble on a few occasions .
Is there a macro that I can use that adjusts the "Normal" cell style number format from General to Number (with thousand separator but 0 decimals) each time I open a new book? As merging cell styles is also quite a mundane task..
I am creating a spreadsheet on a British-based system using the d/m/y date system as default, but I am unfortunately entering data using the american m/d/y system and would like to change the default to the american system.
When I place a text box in Excel 2010, the default is for everything to be locked (Box is locked AND text is locked). I want to change the default setting so that when I start Excel fresh, anytime I place a text box the "LOCK TEXT" box is UNCHECKED.
There's a place where you can select "Set as default text box") after you make the changes, but it's not sticking (even in the same document without closing. IE, I make the changes to a text box, then click the option that says "Set as default text box", place a NEW text box immediately in the same document but the text is still locked.
My office recently upgraded to Office 2010 and we would like (in the accounting department that I work in) to change the default number formating in a blank sheet to Number, 0 Decimals, using seperators, from the current default of general format number.
I have looked for the Book.xltx file to replace but can't see it any where.
I work with a team of users that are continually publishing reports in Word that contain charts and graphs copy and pasted from Excel into Word 2010.
We have a custom script that leverages a PDF engine to automatically convert .doc files to .PDF files that we distribute electronically to our clients. This all works great, but only if all my users select 'paste special' and Enhanced Metafile Format when adding their excel charts into our reports. Most of these people aren't tech savvy, and I'm havin ga hell of a time getting them to follow this workflow and am hoping there's a way in Office 2010 to select the default paste from excel into word when the content is a chart.
It seems like the default paste from excel is an embedded chart/graph that you can then further manipulate each component of the chart in Word; the default doesnt' paste an actual image. I am assuming the pdf renderer is using a lower resolution .PNG version of the image and when these are scaled for print and or pdf, they look like crap.
Is htere anyway I can automatically change the default paste format for the chart from excel into word to be an EMF/EMV (enhanced metafile?) Either thorugh the registry or some other saveable setting?
This may have been answered on here but can not seem to find it. My situation is I have values in A1,A2 & A3 that are like counter reading so the value is always changing. What I am looking to do is change the cell color if one of the values is over 500 from the other two values. Say A1 is 3000, A2 is 3250 and A3 is 3500. I would like the cell for A3 to change color.
If I've defined borders for a range of cells and then, changing my mind, change it to "No Borders", those cells are still different than the normal, non-formated cells. Is there a way to get back the default cell bounders?
I am working on a production spreadsheet, and I'm trying to figure out the easiest way for my coworkers to enter data into the system. Each shift, we produce from 5-20 different varieties of chips, and we keep track of how much we've made of each. I've decided that a simple ADD and DEL button at the end of each row will work (unless anyone can think of something easier or better, let me know pls).
Cell G3:G30 is where data will be stored for each variety. The default value for each variety is stored in column C. I found a very basic macro that adds a value to a selected cell, but I wish for it to find the default quantity for the variety in that row (changes day to day as per our schedule), and add it to the value in column G. The DEL button will do just the opposite.
I have 3 worksheets that I need this macro in as well (days, afternoons, midnights), but I don't think that will be any problem. I've searched around for a solution, to no avail.
I need a cell to display a default value (something like "Input Here") which a user can overwrite with a value. When the value is erased, the cell should return to the default. Preferably, it'd be great if the cell reset to the default value whenever the workbook is opened as well (i.e. won't save the user's input value).
I would like to change the default color of any excel sheet I use to grey from the standard white and I am struggling to find out how this is achieved.
In other words, I am trying to have all cells in the sheets I work with appear grey on my screen by default. A coworker of mine used to work in banking and she has grey cells but does not know how she changed them.
Is it possible to set the default contents of a cell instead of having it blank? I want a cell to say "No Data" if you have not entered any data into that cell, and when you do, then it is replaced by whatever you entered. If you delete the contents of the cell, it goes back to the "No Data". Hence the "No Data" being the default contents of the cell.
In a worksheet, I should have selected the region where data is present, and center align all the cells. Instead, I selected the entire worksheet and did the same, so that whenever new data comes in the relative cells are already formatted. This has caused the workbook size to increase dramatically. (So, I assume that changing a cell property from the default value uses some memory). Is there a way to restore the format of the blank cells to the default values, so that memory is freed and the workbook size decreases again?
I need a formula for identifying the last cell, of every third cell, that has an numeric entry, of a row. For example, in a range of (F7:V7), I need a formula that examines F7,I7,L7,O7...., and displays the last cell that has a numeric entry, while ignoring the other cells, ie G7, H7, J7, etc.
A - Date last checked B - Due Date C - Actual Date checked
Currently column B is formatted to Date and simply has =A+84 and will display a date 3 months in future. However if there is no date in column A, then column B displays a default 1900 date.. Is there a way of making this blank if there is no date in col A?
If i have a range say E12:O12 and want to find the last cell before blank, lets say it finds m12 as the cell with the value before blank. then with m12 it needs to determine weather row 11 in the same column has Text either "S" or "F" if "S" then m12 = t if "F" then m12 offset(1,-1) = t. And just to make things more difficult i need the range E12:O12 to step 2 as well until it gets to E208:O208 .Noting that row 11 never changes and will always have either an "S" Or an "F"
