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.
I have a combobox embedded into an excel sheet with a linked cell and a range defined in the combobox properties. Every time I change the value in the combobox, the value in the linked cell is stored as text instead of a number.
I have tried copying a cell containing 1 and copying and pasting as special into the linked cell but that only fixes it for the time being. If I change the value in the combobox again, the value in the linked cell is again stored as text. I tried =value() in the linked cell but that again only worked temporarily. Every time I change the value in the combobox, the value in the linked cell is stored as text.
I'm trying to write a macro that will convert a number into text but can't hone in on the right coding
here's what I want to do:
a.) I select a cell in my spreadsheet that contains a number, it can be in any format ie: 100, 7.7442, 22.3 b.) I launch the macro c.) the macro converts the number into text and adds the letter T in the front so the new cell value becomes: T100, T7.7442, T22.3
I need a formula to copy a number stored as a text to the number.
I have a formula in, let's say on Sheet1, cell A1: =IF($M$3,TEXT(N7,"0%"),TEXT(N7,"0.0%"))
I then copy this cell to another sheet, let's say Sheet2, cell A1 =Sheet1!A1. I have then have a bar chart linked to this cell, but it's reading it as text and no bars are appearing in the chart - even though the cell in the second sheet is formatted as a number!
FYI - my work around is to link my chart to the underlying data in the formula above, in this case, N7. But then I'm not getting the whole number (%) or decimal (%) that I want when the value is displayed in the chart.
I have a column of data that is a weight measurement. Some of the numbers are in lbs while some of the others are in kg. I am looking for a way to convert the kg measurements to lbs, then delete all the text (non-numbers) from the column leaving only the numerical weight values.
Code: Sub RemovePercentSign_Untested() Dim LastRow As Long, UnusedCol As Long Const StartRow As Long = 1 Const ColNum As Long = 3 Application.ScreenUpdating = False LastRow = Cells(Rows.Count, ColNum).End(xlUp).Row
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.
I'm trying to format an Excel 2010 spreadsheet so that I can import it into another application. I need to convert a number to text with four digits and a leading apostrophe - '0000 for example. How do I do this without having to type everything in manually?
I have a very large exported data base to excel. See the Attachment. I have columns on the left with text that needs to stay as text, and rows at the top with dates. These are my filters to sort and view my data. The current problem I am having is some of the quantities in the bulk of my spreadsheet are coming in as text that need to be converted to numbers (that stupid green triangle in the upper left hand corner). I already have developed a macro to format, sort, extract, and place the data so it's more manageable to look through. I need to get rid of this convert to number error before running this macro.
I am looking to develop a macro that will find each of these "convert text to number" errors and convert the text to number. So far I have been unable to find a starting point.
The sample attached is only 1% of the actual size of the spreadsheet, and my exported data base is variable in size.
The only solution I have at the moment is to go to the bottom of my spreadsheet, find the last error, and highlight everything above and done one convert to number.
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.
I have a range of numbers stored as text. I need to convert them to long numbers using vba. I tried typing a simple number = clng(a2), but that didnt work. Can someone help me with A) the right formula and B) the proper end(xlUp) format.
I have a sheet that uses all vlookup formulas to populate the cells, and then some basic math calculation are done in seperate columns with the results. The problem is, even though the rest of sheet works fine one column is being read as text. I've tried many things to get Excel to read the column as numbers but nothing is working. So far I've tried everything I've found in Ozgrid (Paste special using add and multiply, using a working column)and the simple formatting things built into Excel, but nothing is working. All I need is for the column to be read as a number.
I have created an online survey, and people choose ten words (skills) out of 24 possible. Please see screenshot. I would like a formula that does this in layman's terms: "If I see the word "Cooperation" in the source cell, then I'll put "03b" into the target cell; but if I see "Managing" in the source cell instead, I'll put "21a" in the target cell, etc."
I've tried a few IF / Then statements, with no success. Screenshot shows the source cell upper right, and the ten target cells below left with two rows of sample results. I'm guessing the same formula can be in each of the 10 target cells.
