# Convert Cell Format From Custom H:mm To Minutes

May 22, 2013

Data in a cell is formatted in h:mm which is truly a result of a calculation of # of hours & minutes detained at a location. D

## Creating A Custom Format For One Cell?

Apr 14, 2013

I want to create a custom format for a cell for entering in "cup measurements". I want to be able to type in 5, 1/4, 1/16, etc. and have the word "cups" appear after the number in that cell. I formatted the cell to say the word cups after typing in the numbers in my cell using the code "cups".

ex: 0 "cups" works fine for whole number

so then if i change it to 0/0 "cups" is works great for only 1/8 but not 1/16 or whole numbers. Then I looked at other custom codes that already existed in my formatts so I attempted to try this code which I just kinda came up with

_(0/00);_(0);_(0/0); "cups"

well it isn't doing what I want and If I use the 0/00 "cups code and I type in 4 cups the cell then says 4/01 cups.

What does my code need to be for me to show whole numbers and and size fraction without having it look weird?

## Custom Cell Format In Which Space Follows Thousands Place

Feb 10, 2010

I am trying to write a custom cell format that would allow me to replace the comma with a space after the thousand's place. Therefore, 1 million would look like: 1 000 000 instead of 1,000,000. I do NOT want to change my regional settings to accomplish this.

When I write ### ### ### it accomplishes this, however, there is one small glitch. When you apply an "underline" you get the following result:

_1
_10
_100
_1 000
_10 000
_100 000
1 000 000
10 000 000
100 000 000

The underline does not lineup evenly with the "ones" digit until we reach 1 million. I want to write a universal format in which the underline lines up evenly regardless of the number.

## Custom Cell Format - Number Ending With Text String

Jun 13, 2013

How to modify a custom cell format to make data entry easier.

My goal is to have the output look like this: 'A12B-C20D: SET 10: Text string here'

Inputs needed are:

1-3 digit number between A & B
1-3 digit number between C & D
1-2 digit number after SET
Text string of variable length

Where I am stuck. So far I can get "A12B-C20D: SET 10:" to show up properly when 122010 is input. The custom format I am using looks like this: "A"##"B-C"##"D: SET "##": "

When I try to incorporate the "@" symbol the first part of the formatting goes away and the output shows up as "122010 Text string here".

I have tried:
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##":";;-;_@
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##": ";;@
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##":";_@
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##": ";;;@
