Concatenate Formula Not Taking Decimal Places/currency Sign

May 26, 2009

i have lets say a table with rows that contain the following data.

SKU - PRICE - SALEPRICE - DESCRIPTION - SALEDESCRIPTION

What I am trying to do, is to make a concat formula that says:

SALEDESCRIPTION = DESCRIPTION+price was+PRICE+now+SALEPRICE

In essence so that i can simply pull down the formula, and all our product descriptions have 'special offer, was xx (price) is now xx (sale price).

This works fine, except that in the SALEDESCRIPTION, the amounts from the price and saleprice fields are being brought over without decimal places and without currency symbol.

I have tried formatting those two columns as currency or accounting but neither works.

Currency Format With 4 Decimal Places

Dec 10, 2008

I have a problem with the currency format with 4 decimal places.

Sub go()
Range("C5") = Range("C5") + Range("C4")
End Sub
as you can see it adds the conecnt of "R4" to what is in "R5"

If works fine when the calls are formatted as number with 4 decimal places.
example if R4 is 0.1111 and R5 is 0.2222 after running the macro R5 becomes 0.3333

But if the cells are formatted as currency and 4 decimal places the then excel returns $0.3300

Paste Two Decimal Number In Excel Without Extra Decimal Places Appearing

Aug 13, 2009

I have a vba macro that takes data from one workbook and pastes it into another workbook. In doing this I have declared a few variables of type single (I only need two decimal precision). However, when I copy the values from the cells on the source workbook and paste them into the target workbook, the numbers end up having 12 decimal places. Ultimately, this extra precision causes my totals to be off by .01 or more after a while. I have tried rounding the number as I pull it off the source workbook into the variable, but that didn't matter. How do I solve this problem? Code for pulling data from source workbook:...

Currency Convertor ($ Sign Doesn Not Appear)

Sep 30, 2009

I have a spreadsheet with cells defined as Euro & Dollars. I want to add an automatic conversion so for example, if a cell is defined as $ the formula will return the sum X 4 and if it is Euro than sum X 5.

I tried to use "if" combined with "search" (so if the cell contains "$" multiply by 4) but since the cell is defined as currency the $ sign does not appear and cannot be searched…

Decimal Places And INT?

I was going to use the following to test that a number has no more than two decimal places,

Code:

If Int(ActiveCell.Offset(0, 8) * 100) ActiveCell.Offset(0, 8) * 100 Then
However it is rather mysteringly failing when activecell = 16.99 or 17.99; on testing it appears that vba is evaluating Int(ActiveCell.Offset(0, 8) * 100) to equal 1698 or 1798

Round To More Than 30 Decimal Places

Oct 16, 2006

I'm trying to work out a formula in excel which requires me to use Pi to over 30 decimal places. Excel will only let me have 30 decimal places of Pi whether I copy and paste it as a number or use its Pi function and even then seems to round up. Is there any way I can get more than 30 decimal places for this calculation? If not in excel then can anyone suggest another programme that may be capable of this?

Show As Many Or As Little Decimal Places In Any Cell

Converting Units And Decimal Places.

Nov 23, 2009

I have a simple spreadsheet that allows the user to enter a dimension in metric or inches. I want to display the other units in the adjacent cell. In cell A1, the units are "Metric" or "Inch" in a pull down list. In cell A2, the value is entered.

In cell A3 i want to show the value in the other units. So if A1 is Metric, then take A2 and divide by 25.4. And if A1 is Inch, then take A2 and multiply by 25.4.
Also, if A1 is Inch, then display 2 decimal places in A3, and if A1 is Metric, then display 3 decimal places in A3. Is this possible?

Excel 2010 :: Getting Rid Of Decimal Places

Apr 8, 2013

Using Excel 2010

Workbook with 21 sheets, first sheet is the summary sheet (named SUMMARY) taking all it's content from the other sheets, named from 1 to 20, which are all laid out the same, but contain different data.

My problem is that I want to get rid of decimal places that are being brought into the SUMMARY sheet

In sheets named 1 to 20, I am using the following formula in H23 to arrive at a figure =IFERROR(100/(B5/B23),0) in H23

B5 and B23 are always whole numbers on all sheets 1-20, result can be whole or contain decimal places which I round up in the cell to show no decimal places

On sheet 1, B5 is 200 and B23 is 5, giving 2.50 as the answer, which is right, I have H23 set as a number cell with no decimal places so it rounds up to 3 which is what appears in the H23 cell.

All of the above is correct and appearing as I want it on the sheet, the problem arises when I import into the SUMMARY sheet as follows:

On the SUMMARY sheet in cell B59 I want the following to appear 5 - 3 but am getting 5 - 2.5 using the following formula

='1'!B23&" - "&'1'!H23

The first part is fine as B23 will always be a whole number

How can I stop it from bringing in the 2.5 and get it to bring in the rounded up 3 into cell B59

I have cell B59 set as a number cell with no decimal places but it still appears as 2.5

Also when I correct it as it appears a lot on the summary sheet, how do I get the following to happen

='1'!$B$23&" - "&'1'!$H$23

if I fill the above across columns how to I get the two '1' s in the formula to become '2' then '3' as I fill across.

Formatting Of A Cell To 2 Decimal Places

Feb 24, 2010

if I change the formatting of a cell to 2 decimal places, it appears as two decimal places (as it should) for example $88.88888 will show as $88.88

However, when I use this data in another application that displays this data it will display as 88.88888 still. I need to actually take the value and truncate it to 88.88 eg 8.8888888 will become 8.88

I have been using trunc by hand and wanted to try and find out if there is a way that I could write some sort of macro to do this for me each time.

How To Type In 2 Decimal Places In 1/4 Hour Display

Mar 20, 2008

I have to change a time sheet that was previously in HH:mm to display in decimals, but to the nearest 1/4 hour ( 0.25 (=15 mins), 0.50 (= 30 mins), 0.75 (=45 mins), and 1.00 (1 hour))

This is not a formula question, but a format/display question as the cells have to be typed in by different people who up until now have beeb used to typing in the HH:mm format.

This means;
8:15hrs would become 8.25
8:30hrs would become 8.5
8:45hrs would become 8.75

The reason behind the change is a head office wallah that needs to have time in decimals and not true minutes.

Is there a way to;
prevent user from entering any decimal other than .00; .25;.50;.75
or change formatting to turn red if any other than above is entered.

Alternatively, is there a way of me (the collator for 50 people) being able to take data from their sheets (which I have to do monthly) which could be a formula...

I have tried to get head office to change, but they say that they collate data for 13 other sites and all the others are OK (thats cos all the others receive their data on PAPER and one person tabluates them)...

Changing The Decimal Places Without Rounding The Numbers

Mar 19, 2009

I was trying to decrease the decimal places of the data figures that I'm currently working on my report, however, it keeps rounding-up the decimal numbers. I wish to keep the original numbers and just decrease the decimal places.

For example:
The original figure is = 7260.12903225806
Upon decreasing the decimal figures to just 2, the result became = 7260.13

Is it possible for me to just have this result = 7260.12 instead of 7260.13?

I've tried using the TRUNC formula butit does not work if the 2nd decimal value is 0.

For example:
The original figure is = 227161.905808985
Upon applying the formula, the result became = 227161.9 instead of 227161.90

VBA Function To Find Number Of Decimal Places?

Dec 27, 2011

I need a function to find the number of decimal places of a certain number (in this specific case doubles)

The first solution would be something like this:

Code:
'returns the number of decimal places within a double
Public Function getDecPlaces(inputNum As Double) As Long
Dim ndx As Long
ndx = InStr(1, inputNum, ".")
If ndx > 0 Then
getDecPlaces = Len$(CStr(inputNum)) - ndx
End If
End Function

But i feel there is likely a much better way of doing this..

Decimal Places To Be Affected By Combobox Selection

So what I am looking for is if I select TM another four columns require digits to be manually input with 2 decimal places, however, if I select FGGT the same columns in a different row will need to be 4 decimal places as per the product code selection from the combobox.

e.g TM = 2 decimals
FGGT = 4 decimals,
