# Convert Number To Percent Format

## I have built a spreadsheet that pulls data into B60:AA240 (Sheet name is "Actual Numbers Report") from a different sheet in the same workbook. Some of the data is in Number format and the other is in Percent Format. What I would like to do is if AL10 in the Actual Numbers Report sheet says "Actual Numbers" then I would like the cells in B60:AA240 convert to a number format "000,000,000" If AL10 says "Trends" then I want it to convert the cells in B60:AA240 to a percent format "0.0%". I tried creating some code, but it doesn't seem to work. Private Sub Convert_Percent() If Not Intersect(Target, Range("B60:AA240")) Is Nothing Then If .Range("AL9") = "Actual Numbers" Then Range("B60:AA240").Select Selection.NumberFormat = "000,000,000" ElseIf .Range("AL9") = "Trends" Then Range("B60:AA240").Select Selection.NumberFormat = "0.0%" End If End If End Sub If this can work then the 2nd question I would have is can this same line of thinking work to format the chart that this data is pulled from? So if it is Actual Numbers the chart would be in a number format and if it is Trends then it will change to a percent format?

VBA Userform – Convert Number To Percent
In the attached sample (with macros enabled), you will find the problem when pressing the button “INDTAST DATA” (I apologize for the linguistic challenge, but the XL-sheets are in Danish… To relief – check the crash course in Danish below) and then entering some number in the two last textboxes (called “Forventet ændring i antal timer I næste kvartal (%)” and “Forventet ændring i omsætning i næste kvartal (%)”)… If you enter something there, the result will be multiplied by 100 in the worksheet.

I would like to be able to simply enter a full number – like 12 or 9,5– which will then be entered into the worksheet as 12% or 9,5% (and not 1200% or 950%)… I think the answer lies in inserting some code in the VBA code, when the macro writes the data to the worksheet, but you guys know more about it than I do...

I can, of course, enter a full number in the textboxes – followed by a %-sign, but that will slow down the process significantly as well as increase the risk of errors…

Virksomhed = Company
Kvartal = Quarter
År = Year
Branche = Industry
Fakturerede timer = Billed hours
Faktureret omsætning = Billed revenue
Timeforventning = Expected hours (next quarter)
Omsætningsforventning = Expected revenue (next quarter)
Indtast data = Enter data

How To Convert TEXT Into NUMBER Format
I just copied a range of data from a website however these numbers are in TEXT format.

Basically each number in this data set has a SPACE behind. This turn the number into a text itself and i cannot do a sum for this range of data. I tried TRIM function and also tried to format it to number but no luck. Also tried to mutilply the range to 1 yet they're still in text format.

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 A Date Format To A Text Format
Example......

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 Date Format To Another Format
How do I change a date "10/01/2004" into a format like 20041001? I used concatenate(right(A1,4),left(A1,2),mid(A1,4,2)) but the function takes the serial value of the date as an argument and concatenates that . So I get a different value.How can I get away with it?

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

Save Number As Text In Txt Format Wo Changing The Format
In order to export an excel table into another program I first need to save the excel file as .txt. The .txt file can then be imported by the other program.

First I however need to make excel understand that the value should be a text and not a value. I therefore format the number as text (0000150235) by adding "0000150235". After saving the file as .txt the format changes from "0000150235" to """0000150235""". I do however need the format in the .txt file to be "0000150235". Can anyone tell me how I can save "0000150235" as .txt and get the value "0000150235" in the .txt file.

Convert Number In TextBox To True Number
i have this function that poulates data from a userform into a sheet.

Y = Y + 1
End With
Next lLoop

My problem is that the data being entered into the sheet for the lines highlighted in red is going in as text, and not true numerics, so that the subsequent formulae are not working correctly.

Convert To .xlsx Format
I have to download files from a database and save them in .xls format (the only format permitted to export from the database)

Given an open excel wb saved to my hard drive (or network drive) in non .xlsx format. (most likely .xls)

Switch the file to .xlsx format without loosing the open file. (re-open ok).

Caveats:
-Don't want two files
-Dnn't want to have the file name changed (except for the extension).
-Don't want to remain in compatibility mode.
-Don't want to wait a long time.
-Don't want to have possibility of file corruption.

I just want to take my non .xlsx file and then, turn into a .xlsx file. (if I save the file as .xlsx I am still in compatibility mode until I re-open the file. I also will have two files---very annoying).

I changed the field format for cell J26 to custom dddd, mmmm dd, yyyy h:mm:ss AM/PM but still does not work.

My question now is- how do I convert dddd, mmmm dd, yyyy h:mm:ss AM/PM to mm/dd/yyyy h:mm:ss AM/PM so that I would be able to find the age of the defects?

Or is the a way to change the format for NOW() to something dddd, mmmm dd, yyyy h:mm:ss AM/PM?

doesn't seem to work. whist it shows the format as number it still leaves the green flag and the leading zero.

Convert Data To Different Format
See the attached file. In the RawData tab, I have the Type, The Date, and total for that date and type. Using a macro, i would like to redesign the output(onto another sheet) so it can be updated to a database table(i already have the code to export to database). The output should look like what is in the "OutputExample" tab. Figures in the OutputExample tab are only for the first three dates. So currently, I have the output as:

Convert Dates To Another Format
I have attached a sample of the raw output of some call records from our telephone switch. My problem with the date data is twofold; first of all it outputs it in mm/dd/yyyy format, or so it appears. But when I try to change the format to mmm/ddd/yy Excel always interprets the 2nd pair of digits as the month instead of the first two. For example,the following 2 calls are from Jan 1st and Jan 2nd respectively;

01/01/2010
01/02/2010

but excel always treats the 2nd record as Feb 1st. I have read numerous posts from people with similar problems but I can't get any of their solutions to work with my data.

The second problem is that on the 13 of each month the phone switch suddenly stops putting a leading zero in front of the date making the data totally unreadable to Excel apparently. Again, I read a post of a similar problem but can't get their solution to work. My ultimate goal is to reformat the date data so that it is displayed as; ddd mm/dd and leave out the year entirely. Ex. Fri 02/12 as in today...Friday, Feb 12th. I really don't know if the problem is with the data or me at this point.

I am trying to make a very simple macro but get stuck in de Excel date format. When using the date "=TODAY()" in one cel it is no problem but I want to integrate it in the CONCATENATE function.

I want to create this text "(WG 01-01-2006)" but then with the actual date of that day of course, which can be inserted in de active cell.

Whatever I do, copy, pastespecial, reed text with RIGHT, change format on an temporary cell etc. Excel keeps returning the number in Excel date format counting from 01-01-1900. Nice for calculating but I want the date text!

Convert A Date In Specific Format
I'm trying to convert a date in the following format: 19970121 to 1/21/1997 and am having trouble getting rid of the leading zero in the final version. I also need it to pick up the 2 digits in months that have them from 9 (Sept) through 12 (Dec), though, for use in a VLOOKUP function. Can this be done at all?

Here is the code I've been using so far that doesn't entirely work for what I need it to do:

=CONCATENATE(LEFT(RIGHT(B2,4),2),"/",RIGHT(B2,2),"/",LEFT(B2,4))

where B2 refers to the column the original date form (19970121) is in. I'm still stuck with the leading zero in this code.

Convert The Digit In Specific Format
I work in the flooring industry and the format we use for cuts of carpet/vinyl is 40-3 (for 40.25 feet), etc. So we are trying to create an excel spreadsheet that will add up these cuts. Right now it's kind of a mess because we have decimals in a column we will be hiding and are converting that to our industry format.

The formula I am having trouble with is as follows:
=MID(A18,1,FIND(".",A18)-1)&"-"&MID(A18,FIND(".",A18),3)*12

The problem is that whenever the totals end in zero, the formula won't convert 40.00 to 40-0. It gives me an error every time. If the total is 40.25 it will convert it to 40-3 just fine.

Convert Date To Text Format
Is there a way to convert date to text of format (number stored as text) either directly using excel formulas or VB macros. We've a requirement to pass today's date as a string in the format of "number stored as text". For this, i've in cell A1 a formula today() which gives today's date 10/15/2007 and I'm looking an output of '20071015 in cell A2 and this should be treated as text with a symbol " ' " before 20071015.

Convert Non-US Dates To US Date Format

"10/08/2005,11/08/2005,12/08/2005,13/08/2005,14/08/2005,".

When broken into individual cells, dates before the 13th of the month are recognised as "American" dates and display as "08/10/2005", "08/11/2005", 08/12/2005" etc. with automatic date format. Dates from the 13th onwards are left in general format as "13/08/2005", "14/08/2005".

I have written a macro that converts each date individually to its correct Excel serial number, but I can't help thinking that there must be a simpler way, and that I cannot be the first to have asked this!

Convert Dates To Text Format Using A Macro
Is there a way I can convert dates to text in a CSV file (opened via excel) using a macro?

Currently I have excel recognised dates in the first column of the format dd-mm-yyyy and a corresponding values in the second columns.

I know once I have the file open I can enter the following formula in an adjacent coloum "=text (A2, "MMM-YYYY") but I need to change the format in the existing date feild and not create a new coloum. Sure I could copy and paste the new formatted dates into the cell, but in terms of what I need to do, this is not practical as I several of these CSV files that I need to query and extract data from daily using a macro.

The macro is not currently working because the date format is wrong. I need it to appear as MMM - YYYY. When you view the date in excel it must appear like this (as it would appear in say microsoft word) and not with the underlying date format.

Data Extraction: Convert The Date Format
I have several large excel spreadsheets with thousands of entries (autocad drawing numbers). In one column it lists the date the drawing was created. Unfortunatley most of the entries were input as text. Even though I have formated the column to a date format (01/01/2009) most entries are not converting. Below is an example of some of the cells:

Jan. 12/02
JAN12/02

How can I correct his?

Import, Format, Convert, Print VBA Module
I was wondering if its possible to build a module that would do the following: a) import a txt file to excel formatting it as text.

b) then in column D would remove the preceding space.

c) then convert data in D according to a separately kept Conversion table (or conversion table could be integrated into the code) and print conversion results into column J.

d) the last step is to print/copy columns A and J so that it looks like the final table in Sheet2.
Here are files attached.

sample data.txt
sample data.xls
conversion table.xls

To summarize I need to go from a txt file like the one attached and arrive at the table in Sheet2 of xls file attached.

Convert Serial Date Time To General Format
I use software that exports date/time stamps in the format of: MM/DD/YYYY hh:mm:ss.s
I like to keep the data in this general format so that we can keep it consistent and it can be useful to others using other software.
I recently had to do some date/time stamp manipulations where I added 61 days to a dataset because the data was erroneously set to a diferent calendar. (Still don't know how that happened but it isn't relevent to this issue) When I set up a formula to add 61 days, it appears that it automatically converted it to the excel serial date/time format before adding the 61 days. Now I have a column of data that is mostly general format but has this portion in serial format. How can I get the serial format changed back to general so that the entire column is in the same format?

Convert Text Entries To Valid Date Format
I receive data from an external source and it displays what appears to be dates in column B.
In column G I apply a formula to display month/year info.

It turns out that some of the data in column B is valid date data, but other data imports as plain text and therefore I can't get the month/year info that I require.
I have attached just a small example.

I get this data monthly and it usually covers thousands of rows and therefore impractical to change manually.

Convert Data Into A List Format By Copying And Pasting
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.

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

i = t.Cells(65536, 2).End(xlUp).Row

Find Time Format Cells And Convert To Date
I am pasting a large amount of data from a sql server query into excel. There is multiple tables output in each query. Some of the data is date/time and excel is formatting all of these cells to time. The date/time cells to not neatly line up in any row or column, so I cannot just format any give column or row. I need a macro that will find all of the cells that are formatted as time and change them to a date format.

Bulk Convert Strange File Format In Multiple Folders.
I have a series of files in *.ew7 format (i know its a random program)

I have some code which i can run which will simply open the relevant file and save it as xls.

The files are saved in multiple folders in format "yymm" eg: 0910 - oct 09.

inside each folder there is a ew7 file for each day in rthe format: "01ddmmyy" eg 01271009 = 27th oct 2009.

I have folders going back as far as may 2002 (in folder 0205) and i need a way to convert these all into xls format and save them in the same location.

Show Text & Number With Number Format
I have a standard block of text with numbers in it pulled from various calculations in a financial model. I have done this through a formula

e.g. ="You gross profit percentage is " & D9 & "% and your gross profit is \$" & D10 & "." Problem is i'd like to format the numbers that pull through so they are easier to read. At the moment in the above example D10 results in \$-600000000. I'd like it to look like \$(600,000,000).

Convert Tree Structure SAP Data Dump Into Database Format
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

I'm just trying to get a total of columns E, F and G, and place those totals in row 5. The problem is that somehow the numbers in column G were stored as text, so the SUM formula is coming up "0". How would I format these cells, in a macro, (columns E, F and G, just in case the data in the other two columns were stored as text), as a number so that I can total them.

I've tried selecting the column, selecting format cells and choosing number, but that doesn't work. I can manually select the cells, click the little exclamation point, and then tell it to convert to number. This works, but when I tried to record it to add it to the macro, it didn't record anything but the selection of the cells.
