Convert Human-readable Text Strings Into Consistent Number Of Weeks From Today Date?
Dec 17, 2011
Is it possible to do the following with a formula in Excel...
I have a list of users with the dates they first logged into a system and the date they last logged in. I'm trying to group them together into segments so I can analyse them using a Pivot table and chart to see how often different groups are using the system, e.g. New customers in December, November, October, etc.
The trouble I am having is trying to convert the different human-readable text strings into a consistent number of weeks from today's date, e.g.
USER FIRST LOGGED IN LAST LOGGED IN
user 1 2 years 20 weeks 54 sec ago
user 2 44 min 7 sec 1 min 37 sec ago
user 3 49 weeks 2 days 17 min 3 sec ago
user 4 5 weeks 2 days 33 min 32 sec ago
user 5 38 min 9 sec 38 min 9 sec ago
user 6 5 weeks 3 days 1 hour 7 min ago
user 7 2 hours 17 min 2 hours 11 min ago
user 8 45 seconds ago 45 seconds ago
Is there a formula I can use to convert these human readble text strings into a number of weeks elapsed since today's date?
In column A and B I have text representing an Entity and its Intercompany, respectively. In column C I have concatenated the two. So now in Column C, for example, I have "BillTom" in row 1 and "TomBill" in row 900.
I need Excel to convert the text into some sort of code, ASCII or number that shows they are EQUAL. I need something that shows "TomBill" and "BillTom" are the same thing, just in a different order.
I cannot build an IF formula or use Find/Replace, as I will have thousands of these types of combinations.
Take a look at the attachment file. Those highlighted in yellow are entered by the user. What is the formula to calculate the End date in (A6) after the user has entered the start date (A2) & the number of weeks (A4)?
I want to add a numeric number eg: 4 to a date format eg: 15/08/2007 so that it calculates 4 WEEKS from 15/08/2007 and returns the CORRECT date in a date fomat itself. How do i do this through a VB code ?
I am trying to create a simple set up where the operator can enter a starting date and the number of weeks they want this event to occur. This then produces a column of dates from the starting date to the end date for the number of week entered.
I am trying to get the results of the number of days between today and a future date. I am using ="cell containing futuredate"-today() and it gets me the correct number of days. The problem comes in when I have yet to populate the future dates. I am getting -39991 (numeric value between today and jan 01 01) and because I am also using conditional formatting this is even more of a problem. Is there a way get excel to display nothing if it is a negative number? or to give a specified resut if the number becomes negative such as Expired or something of that nature?
I have a workbook that I'm using to tracking staffing patterns within a mental health agency. When the workbook opens the user is asked to pick a date range and an office location. I've placed code into the userform that pre-fills the "start date" with today's date and the "end date" 7 days from today's date. I would like the user to be able to enter a unique date range should they wish but I have yet to figure out the coding to accomplish my goal.
I'm trying to create a new column which calculates the number of days from the today's date to the due date of an invoice. Also a Column that an invoice is/was overdue.
Column A - Clerk inputs date that invoice was received Column B - Clerk inputs the date that the bill was paid Column C - Auto populates the due date of the invoice (20 days after the invoice is received) Column D - I want a number of days to auto populate based on today's date that will show how many days we have to pay the bill. Example: today is 2/19/2014, bill is due 2/22/2014 (Column C), column D should read 3 (I would prefer is the number is black for "we have days left to pay", red for "we're behind") *Extra bonus for Column D, if the column goes blank after a date is entered into Column B* - but not necessary
Column E - I would like if the date the bill was paid (Column B) is greater than the date the invoice is due (Column C) to show "Overdue" in the cell.
I have an address column in which multiple strings of text and numbers have been combined. I need to isolate each string and place it into its own column.
Column looks like this....
ADDRESS 615 NE CORDER AVE, LEES SUMMIT, MO 64063
2661 NW LEES SUMMIT RD, LEES SUMMIT, MO 64064
104 SE 4TH ST, LEES SUMMIT, MO 64063
4944 SW GULL POINT DR, LEES SUMMIT, MO 64082
3904 SW PRYOR RD, LEES SUMMIT, MO 64082
329 NW BRADFORD ST, LEES SUMMIT, MO 64064
They need too look something like this... No. Suffix Street Type City State Zip
615 NE Corder Ave Lees Summit MO 64083
The problem I'm having when trying to use a "left" or "right" formulas is some of the strings have different positions in the whole string itself (does that make sense?) (some addresses have 4 characters, some have 3, so on....)
I want to use a sheet for planning work tasks. I need to count how many cells containing 'x' text exist in rows starting with dates greater than or less than 'Today'
If you look at my workbook (attached) I have dates and tasks on 'sheet1' I have stats on 'sheet2' In the 'spent' on sheet2 I have a COUNTIFS to count the cells containing 'Fish' but I also want to narrow it down further so that I see the nuber of cells containing 'fish' where the date in the A column for that row is less than 'Today'
I have 3 columns of data "Store", "Week" and "Cust" and use the code below to ensure that it was always 150 consecutive rows long regardless of whether any data is in the row.
This is fine if I just have one week to sort, but I find I now have 52 weeks of data and each week could have a different number of stores. I just need the macro below to run each time a new week starts. I can easily put a space (or something else) at the start of each new week so that a " loop" can check for it.
For i = 1 To 150 If ActiveSheet. Cells(i, 1).Value <> i Then ActiveSheet.Rows(i).Insert End If Next
Am trying to devise a formula that will allow me to extract a date (not stored in date format or recognizable by excel as such: "DEC1/09") and then manipulate it so that excel can recognize it and change it to a "1-Jan-01" form. Problem for me is that functions such as LEFT MID and RIGHT are very specific and sensitive obviously to any additional characters. some of my dates are preceded by "CAN BND 4.25/09"; "CANB BND 4.25/09"; "BC BND 4.25/09" and so on, you get the idea im sure that they are of differing lengths. The dates are equally strewn around as some (these are bond maturities) are 1st of the month while others may hold dates in the middle-end...15th, 30th, 31st etc.
is there a formula that will recognize the dates in the text strings regardless of string length and then a subsequent formula to manipulate the date to proper format?
i.e. "CAN BND 4.25/09 DEC1/09" and "CANB BND 4.25/07 JUN15/07"
Converted into: "01-Dec-09" and "15-Jun-07"
Not that the other parts of the string don't matter, already have macro that can recognize and rip bond coupons.
I am very comfortable with VBA but I usually avoid using formulas if at all possible (unfortunately, I have, formulas are unavoidable (by request).. so formulas it is)
I will try to explain
Column A is a list of dates (ever expanding) Column B is a list of names ( multiple entries of various names but aligned with various dates) Column H is a list of names (each possible name which can appear in column B, no duplicates)
Cell I1 = A Date Cell J1 = A Date (forming a date range)
Basically what I need to do is:
= COUNTIF(B:B,H2) - but only count it if it is withing the date range (>=I1 & <=J1)
I have tried wrapping it in an IF statement but I can't seem to get it to work.
In Column A I have the list of strings that I need to search. I want to count the number of occurrences of these strings inside these two text files: Sample1.txt and Sample2.txt. For example I have the string "DOG". I want to search and count the number of times this string appeared in Sample1.txt, and Sample2.txt
I'm having an issue converting months into weeks. My example is I have people who must provide leaving notice (could be months or weeks). For instance column B details months, and column C details weeks. I'd like to convert months (column B) into weeks in column D, but am not sure of the components of such a formula so I won't list or guess as I'm just not sure.
I have been trying to format the rows on this sheet to color scale red based on the number of repeat text strings in Column E. Referring to the attached example sheet, '321/312.2/321.3' appears the most times and the goal is to color code the rows it appears in the deepest shade of red, then the next highest occurring string would shade the rows it appears in a lighter shade, etc, in descending order. Our team currently does this across multiple sheets manually everyday and it would be a real time saver if we could get excel to do this automatically.
How would I go about counting the number of times TA shows within strings of text in a range within a sheet. Example: TA,MH in cell A2, CB,TA in cell C40, ES,TA in cell Q19. Result would be 3. Ideally, I'd like the formula to reference a cell that has TA as the look up data such as in A1 I'd have TA.
I have a problem that when I try to convert text to number and format the number without 2 decimal places as seen on the link I have given below, Instead of 1607.947, I get 1607947. I have Excel 2010 loaded. The details are in below picture.
