Jun 7, 2013

When I import data , the dates appear as follows in Col G sheets "Imported Data"

Check Cells Are Correct Format And Contain Correct Data

Jan 26, 2014

We receive about 20 sales files of several hundred lines of data each day from various agencies. I want to create a macro / VBA code which checks that the data submitted is correct so that we can upload it into our database without import errors and / or having to manually check each line of data.

I envisage something like an output report:

149 entries
Column A - Date - OK
Column B - Customer_Phone - Errors (Should be 11 digits)
Row 21 - Customer_Phone - Error (Not 11 digits)
Row 108 - Customer_Phone - Error (Contains letters)
Column C - Outcome - OK
Please correct and re-check.

Format Currency As Correct German Format

Jan 23, 2009

I have a spreadsheet which needs to display currency in the correct format dependant upon whether a contract is in English or German Law. Excel defaults currency format as 310,000.00 however in German this needs to be 310.000,00 i.e. with the decimal point and comma in opposite positions. Does anyone know what expression I can use to format it as the latter?

Importing Data In Correct Format For Macro To Run

Aug 17, 2008

We have a system that normally dumps our data in the format of column K, with all of the data in one column and the same spacing you see below in red. The problem is when the system is slow, we have to manually dump it, and when we manually dump it, it comes out spread out from column A to column I. For the macro to work without bugging out on me, it has to be in the same format as column K, with exactly the same spacing.

I have tried text to columns while importing, amongst other things, but have not had any luck. So in a nutshell I need to be able to make column A thru I, look just like column K with exactly the same spacing. The data dumps are different every day.

I have a strange feeling I will not get a reply on this question, because it is so strange, or that I failed to articulate it correctly....

Convert Cells With Percentage Format To 'same' Decimal In A Column With Mixed Format

Jun 7, 2006

I have a column of cells with values - 0.2%, 0.32%, 0.22, 0.5 etc. The cells with % symbol are in ' Percentage, 2 decimal' format while the plain numbers are in 'General' format i.e. column contains cells in either of these formats. I need a macro where I can specify the column and it will select the cells with the % format, convert it to 'General' and multiply the result by 100 eg. 0.2% converted to 'General' becomes 0.002. When multiplied by 100, result is 0.2 i.e. is displayed without the % symbol.

Convert A Date Format To A Text Format

Oct 6, 2008


In D2 I have: =B2
In D3 I have manually input: (space)3-08

As you can see the CONCATENATE puts the "39569" date in A2 But the second line puts the text date as I prefer. What I would like to do is put in a formula or macro in D2 and down that will change the "Mar-08" to "3-08" so it CONCATENATEs correctly to column A. Simply: I'm trying to avoid manually inputing the text version "3-08" (or whatever M-Y) into D2 down a hundred or so rows!

Convert Data Into A List Format By Copying And Pasting

Jun 6, 2006

I have a consolidation workbook and source files.I would like to convert the data from the source files into a list format in the consolidation workbook.

I have attached a sample of the sheet format of the source files in the attached file, called 'Page 5'. The other 2 sheets are 'Template' and 'Instructions'. The 'Template' sheet is what I imagined would be the list format of the data copied from the 'Page 5' sheet. Instructions is where the lookup table for currency is.

So basically starting from row 8 in 'Template' sheet, I would like to copy and paste from 'Page 5' sheet to 'Template' sheet:
- H2 to A8 & B8
- B2 to C8
- According to the list of currency in 'Instructions' sheet, lookup the currency according to operating unit in C8 and paste to D8
- D5-I5 to E8
- row A8-A23 to column F-N

I actually have had a similar problem before, which Derk has helped me here - link: Use Access or XL? (I've decided to start a new thread because this is a more relevant forum).

I have tried to modify the code but I am rather lost as to which part I am supposed to modify.. Note that in this code, the source data is in separate file instead.

Sub add()

Dim wb As Workbook, f As Worksheet, t As Worksheet, j As Integer, k As Integer, n As Integer
Dim mty As String, yr As Integer, d As Date, bu As String, cur As String, sTodo As Variant

sTodo = Array("Page 5") 'finish adding the names
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
Set t = Workbooks("Example1.xls").Worksheets("Template")
i = t.Cells(65536, 2).End(xlUp).Row

How To Convert Data On Multiple Sheets Into Excel Table Format

I have a workbook that contains something like 50 worksheets and they all contain data with the same columns, for example column A is Project, column B is Project Name, etc. I need to convert data in each worksheet into an Excel Table. There has to be an easier way than manually converting each worksheet into a Table. However, when I group all of the sheets, the option to Insert a Table is not available even though the data starts in the same row and contains the same number of active columns in each worksheet. Is there an easier waty to insert a table in all of the worksheet simultaneously?

Convert Tree Structure SAP Data Dump Into Database Format

Jul 28, 2009

I have an organizational hierarchy dump in excel from an SAP ERP system. The format of that file is less than user friendly and I need to convert it to a flat file format so I can do pivots against it or possibly dump it into access database. The background is as follows (I am also attaching a file).

The organizational structure is multinoded/layered. Top most node is a company second from the top are divisions designated by 02DivName each 02DivName has multiple nodes assigned to it. The lowest level of the hierarchy is a department, always a numeric, always same length.

That's where it gets interesting. Each node/layer under 02DivName has a technical description and text description they get broken up into two different columns when SAP dumps them. Technical descriptions can be used to identify where in hierarchy the node falls(parent/child). For example 02A is a child of 02DivName 02B is a child of 02A 02C is a child of 02B and of course all of them roll up to 02DivName. There could be multiple 02A's under Div Name and their respective 02B's, C's D's would roll under them. So on export file it would be graphically represented 02A1 blank blank blank blank in that column and then change to 02A2 their respective 02B's would be in different columns works the same for C's and D's.

Here is another wrinkle the department is not always assigned to the lowest level grouping. I could have 02DivName dept, dept, dept, and then 02A group assigned to 02DivName. The department numbers end up on export file in the same column as fre form text descriptions for the nodes. It is staggered format.

The object of what I'm trying to do is basically convert the gibberish described above into flat file format via a vba script. I need to have node1 node1 desc node2, node2 desc, etc etc in columns the last column being a department number. So if for example I have a dept assigned directly to 02DivName directly all the other node descriptions will be blank if it's node 02A then the node1 and node2 will be populated. Any help will be appreciated. And here is the file with excel spreadsheet

Convert Data From Table Format Into One Long Row Of Data?

Jun 17, 2013

I have a sheet with data 7 columns wide and up to 1500 rows long. Below are a few lines from the sheet. The data from the sheet is grouped into "months" as shown in the header down the first column, "Show June, 2013..." and "Show July, 2013...", and so on. Is there a way I can make Excel re-align the data into ONE long row of data for each month? Each new month row must be "triggered" by the text (like the word "Show") because the actual cell number of where the new month begins may change with new updates. I want to do this because I plan to refresh the data once at the end of each day from the web and apply the new data to the "next" row of data. So eventually, I can have a history of "Last" values I can chart for each "strike" for each month.

DateTime Stamp With Correct Number Format?

Nov 25, 2013

I am trying to date and time stamp a certain cell. This cell is going to be compared to another cell in another sheet (also date and time) so that I can track deadlines being met.

I am using the following code to stamp the cell:

Range("F26").NumberFormat = "[$-409]m/d/yy h:mm AM/PM;@".Value = Now()

Even with the number format, the cell is not stamped as a number. As a result I get #value errors when I take the difference between the stamped cell and the cell with the preset deadlines.

If the results are true place a value of 1 in column K. If false place a value of 0 in column K.

QueryTable Not Returning Correct Number Format

Jul 28, 2006

I have a querytable running on my sql database. In the query I have a trimleft function because the numbers are stored with several proceeding blank spaces. When I execute the query through my macro, everything works fine, except I can't average or sum the results. They can be multiplied, divided, etc, but not averaged or summed (they just show as zero on summing, which makes the average DIV/0). The really strange part is that if I select a number and go to the formula bar and hit delete at the beginning of the number (which actually deletes nothing), the number is suddenly capable of actually performing as a number. I assume this has something to do with how the querytable is returning my results, but does anyone have an idea for a workaround for this issue?

Excel 2003 :: Correct Approach For Number Format?

Feb 14, 2012

I have several sources of information for client files. the number format includes a reference number and a month, eg 123/11, 456/02. In some cases, the numbers may be presented including the company initials, eg ABC/00123/11. I want to make sure all numbers on all sources are the same as I am using Vlookup and this reference no to copy information from one source to another. Sometimes when I change the format Excel sees this as a date, eg 11/11 is 11-Nov, and in some cases Excel sees a fraction, eg 123/11 is 123 11ths or 123 divided by 11.

I can easily take out the reference no with a find and replace FIND ABC/ replace with . But this often results in a number with leading zeroes, eg ABC/0123/06 will leave 0123/06.

I am using Excel 2003.

Excel 2010 :: Consolidating Info In Correct Format

Sep 11, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with five cells (L3 - L7) that have dates entered into them in the format of 9/9/2013, 9/10/2013, 10/20/2013, 10/21/2013, 10/22/2013. In another cell, cell n2, I have the formula:

=IF(L2=0,"",IF(L2=1,L3,IF(L2=2,CONCATENATE(L3,L4),IF(L2=3,CONCATENATE(L3,L4,L5),IF(L2=4,CONCATENATE(L3,L4,L5,L6),IF(L2=5,CONCATENAT E(L3,L4,L5,L6,L7)))))))

In cell n2 I get: 41526415274156741568481569 This is the excel number for the above dates, but I need it to look like:

Sep. 9 - 10, 2013, Oct. 20 - 22, 2013

I also need it to be able to isolate single dates for example if the date in cell l5 was 10/5/2013 instead of 10/20/2013 then I would want n2 to look like Sep. 9 - 10, 2013, Oct. 5, 2013, Oct. 21 - 22, 2013. but my formula currently only changes that number in the string from 41567 to 41552.

The reason I need this is because this information is part of a identifier and also maybe used in reports, the people reading the reports won't know this long number is actually dates and won't be able to read them if they did.

Also the cells L3 - L7 data depends on cell l2, 1 = one date entered into cell l3, 2 = two dates, one in cell l3, the next in cell l4, and so on for up to five total days that may or may not be consecutive. Also, it seems to work as is, but only for one day.
