# Convert Letter Grades To Numbers

## a formula that would take letter grades (A, B, C, D, and E) and produce an average letter grade? For example, a student gets a D on one assignment and a B on another. I want a formula that will produce "C".

creating a function to turn a percent (0-100) into a letter grade, I am creating a gradebook spreadsheet.

I think VLOOKUP is the way to go here, but I do not understand vlookup at all no matter how many times I try to look at demos or read how-tos.

I created two columns, one with what the grade entails (93-100 , 90-93 and so on) and the next column has A, A-, etc. But I can't get vlookup to work, any suggestions? I am pretty noob when it comes to excel.

Remove Trailing Letter From Numbers & Convert To Positive / Negative
I use currency data pasted from legacy program that pastes dollar values followed by a C or D to represent debit and credits, ie -- 1,000,000.00C or 1,000,000.00D.

Is there some way to remove the letter and correctly format the value to a negative or positive number on a whole worksheet or column?

Currently I am doing this manually one cell at a time.

Convert Numbers Stored As Text To Numbers (attached File)
In the ID column of the attached excel file whenever I convert the numbers stored as text to numbers it results in a weird transformation.

e.g. an ID of 480610141001 becomes 4.8061E+11. When I do the same process in the name column, which has similar numbers, it will give the correct result following the same process.

Letter Association With Numbers
On column "F" I have all the names listed, they are all lowercase, and with different length. How do I write a formula to turn those names into numbers?

Convert Numbers As Text To True Numbers
I have the following two macros that I use daily:

Dim c As Range
For Each c In Selection

If Left(c.Value, 1) <> "'" And c.Value <> "" Then
If InStr(c.Value, "E+") > 0 Then
c.Value = "'" & c.Formula
Else

I use these because I frequently copy billing account numbers that have leading zeros from some proprietary software and work with them in Excel. I need the leading zeros to facilitate VLookUp's. When I paste the data into Excel it truncates the leading zeros. My typical procedure is:

1. Copy a column of values from our proprietary software
2. Paste it in Excel (Ctrl+V)
3. While newly pasted data is still selected I hit Ctrl+1 which brings up the Format Cells form.
4. I double click "Text"
5. I re-paste into Excel (Ctrl+V)
6. I run my macro to add tic marks to the values so the leading zeros never get lost.

The problem occurs when I copy multiple columns of data and paste it in Excel. If one of the columns of data contains numbers or currency then I select that range of values and run the macro to get rid of the tic marks. After running the macro the numbers are still treated as text. When I select a range of those values and right-click on the status bar and select " Sum" there is no value. No big deal, I just highlight them and format the cells as numbers or currency. But after formatting them as numbers or currency, they retain their format as text until I click in the formula bar for each individual cell and hit enter, at which time they take on the number or currency format I have chosen and the sum can then be displayed in the status bar.

How can I force the formatting I chose to take effect on the data immediately without me having to individually "fake change" the data in each cell?

Convert Numbers Seen As Text To True Numbers
I have text as numbers downloaded to excel sheets from crystal that i need to add together on a summary sheet.

Convert Numbers, Seen As Text, To True Numbers
The back story is that from a system we use, when you download data from inside it, Excel treats most of the cells with a "Number Stored As Text" error. I had problems with this and it was just generally annoying so I wrote the below macro that converts each of the cells back to general cells and reinputs the data, essentially reseting the cell and keeping the data. Being that this is a loop, it takes a good while to run if alot of data was downloaded. Any idea's on how to speed it up besides screen updating? Note, other stuff happens in the first macro, but it is just cosmetic non-intensive things. It calls the second macro because I wanted them seperate should I want to just run the second.

Sub CleanData()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
' Find the Right most cell and the Bottom most cell and
' run the macro from A1 to this cell recursively
Range("IV1").End(xlToLeft).Select
Col = Selection.Column
Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Select
Row = Selection.Row
Range("A2").Select
Range("A1", Cells(Row, Col)).Select
Application.Run ("FixTextAsNumberError")
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
'
End Sub..............

Return Column Letter Based On The Letter In A Cell.
For the below formula is it possible to replace the B's (column location) with a cell Say Z146 which contains the letter B (or a number if thats easier and someone can tell me the numbers for each column).

When the formula is dragged into the next cell (down) it takes its column reference from Z147 and then my life becomes so much easier.

Convert Words Into Numbers
For my research in medicine I build a spreadsheet with google docs. After having received most of the data I transfered the spreadsheet into an excel file.

Convert Negative Numbers To Zero
In an excel column listing monthly payments, I cannot report a negative value . I need to "carry forward" the negative value by automatically adding it to the next positive cell in the column. This process should loop through the column leaving no negative numbers, leaving a zero in any cell where the negative number was originally and balance out to be the same amount as the sum of the original listing of monthly payments.

Convert Numbers To Times
I have a workbook that has many linked cells and formulas. Some of the times were entered manually in hh:mm format and are located on tables that are used to get a number from. On another worksheet, there are times taken from the internet that show up in general format. So 00:05 shows up as 5. I have tried to change these into number formats but it always shows up as 00:00 and tries to include the date in the formula bar.

These various cells are linked and are used to look up other values but the formats are different and not talking. I am looking for a way to get them to work with eachother without using formulas if possible because many of the cells already have formulas in them.

Convert Numbers With Decimals To Percentage
I have a spread sheet with over 200 numbers like 3.3, 4.5, 6.6 and so on. Is there and easy way to convert them to Percentages?

Convert Positive Numbers To Negative
I have created a Pivot table from a source data file that includes a document status column ('Type I Or C') (I for Invoice & C for Credit) and an Invoice / Credit value column (Invoiced Price). However the values for both invoices and credits are positive so when summed distort the total values.

I am attempting to create an additional column within the Pivot table to convert the credit note values to negative by inserting a calculated field under the formula tab, i.e.

=IF('Type I Or C'="C",-'Invoiced Price','Invoiced Price')

The above formula works fine in a standard worksheet but it is not reckonsing the "C" within the pivot table. If I manually change the value to numeric (i.e. 1 for Invoices and 2 for credits) it works fine, i.e =IF('Type I Or C'="2",-'Invoiced Price','Invoiced Price')

so it appears to be an alpha issue?

Convert 4 Digit Numbers To Times
Is there any way changing general four digit number into hours and minutes?

Adding colon to 62000 cells one by one does not sound that good to me.

I have few grades and conditions on which rate will populate in the D1 cell.

Tried at bit

Cannot Convert Numbers Stored As Text To Number Format
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.

Convert Imported Values, Being Seen As Text, To True Numbers
I have a document passed to me that includes information pulled from an internal system.

Is there a quicker way of selecting all of the cells in Column A for example and performing this function on mass, rather than selecting each cell individually.

I have attahced a similar sample copy - My SUM formula is show in cell B15.

Macro To Convert Numbers To Alphabet Letters & Sum Range
First my goal is to sum a row and column. For example i want the sum of row 1 a to row 1 g. However, I'm using a loop for an automated macro. So i want to be able to say something like cells(1, count), so during the loop count goes from 1 to 7 representing the letters in the alphabet. But I'm not sure how to do so.

Secound, in my vba script to pull information from specific pages i say "sheet1.activate" how can i had the sheet switching during the process to speed up the calculation? and last but not least,

If Cells(1, locd) = "2008" Then

When i run my script, i get a runtime error 1004 application-defined or object defined error. The weird thing is, i can move what line it is on and then the macro will run ONCE and then it breaks again with the same error for that specific piece of code.

Convert Numbers To Postitive/Negative Based On Column Header
I have this data source file that comes from a back office program, and basically what i want it to do is to turn the number negative in column C when the header of that column in column A is WITHDR and leave it positive when it is CONTR. What i was thinking was that it could go to column A from column C and go up each cell until the cell is not a date and multiply the column C number by -1 depending the column A header equals WITHDR and do that for every cell in column C, but I dont know how to proceed, im new at VBA.
