Convert A Number Into 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

Convert Text To Number ...
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.

Convert Date To Text Day Number?
Wondering if there is a simple and concise way to convert a date into text that represents the day number?

So a cell containing “17/09/2006” simply reads as “Seventeenth”, 18/09/2006 becomes “Eighteenth” and so on...

Convert Text Strings To A Code Or 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 tried the paste special advice and the 3 ways microsoft suggests. I have a feeling its not working because of the required format that I need.

I need to do this project tonight!

Background: these are imported numbers, I had to combine other excel databases... By the way, is their an easier way to combine excel sheets into 1?

Convert Text To Number In Lookup Formula
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.

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.

Adding Or Subtracting One Month To A Month Number
I have forumlas that will look at this cell and take action of the month in a different cell is either 1 month greater (Frontmonth+1) or less (Frontmonth-1) than "Frontmonth". As we approach December I'm realizing that logic will breadown since the FrontMonth+1 would be 13, not 1 (January)

Is there a way to get excel to add 1 month to just the month number so that if Frontmonth = 12, Frontmonth+1 would return 1, not 13?

Programattically Convert Date To Month
I have a column of dates that I would like to convert to just their Month names so 1/1/2009 would be "January". I am going to use this column in a pivot table as a filter so I need to actually replace the date with the month name. I would do it manually, but there are close to 32000 rows and every month it will grow even more. Is this possible with a macro? I attached a sheet with some sample data.

Convert The Data By Input And Categorize Into Month In Another Worksheet
am currently a QE using the following data for my report generation:
Date - Week - #Inspected - #Failed
Want to pull data into ANOTHER WORKSHEET from this one wherein the format will be :

Month - #Inspected - #Failed

Indirectly want Excel to directly convert the data by input and categorize into Month in another worksheet (will be linked and would be great if according to the date it could calculate the week as well) if somebody inputs defects by date it should automatically cumulate into respective month.

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

For lLoop = 1 To MAWBNoVar
With Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)
.Offset(1, 0) = Controls("txtMAWB" & lLoop)
.Offset(1, 1) = Left(Controls("cbDestination" & lLoop), 3)
.Offset(1, 2) = Controls("txtGW" & lLoop)
.Offset(1, 3) = Controls("txtCBM" & lLoop)
.Offset(1, 4) = "= ROUND(E" & Y & "*167,0)"
.Offset(1, 5) = "=IF(D" & Y & ">F" & Y & ",D" & Y & ",F" & Y & ")"
.Offset(1, 6) = "=IF(F" & Y & ">D" & Y & ",G" & Y & "-D" & Y & ",G" & Y & "-F" & Y & ")"
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.

I m trying to write a formula for my financial model. If anyone can take a stab at a solution. I'm trying to write a formula that will equally distribute revenue either over the next 1 month, 2 month or 3 month period depending on size of the deal.

Sales will fit in 1 of 3 categories. Less than 25k; between 25k & 100k; greater than 100k.

- if under $25K, recognize in next month (month N+ 1)
- $25K-100K, recognize in two equal parts in months N + 1 and N + 2
- over $100K, recognize in three equal parts over 3 months
N + 1, N + 2, N + 3 ...

VBA To Convert To Number
I have a string of imported data which comes into an existing spreadsheet. It cannot be changed prior to importing as the data is provided by an external vendor.

When the data is imported into my spreadsheet the Error Checking tag comes on, after I select the cells where certain numeric data has been entered, stating that this is a range of Numbers Stored as Text. If I click on the Error Checking tag and select the Convert to Number option and then enter my VLOOKUP function I get the desired answer. If I do not convert the text to numbers then my VLOOKUP function does not work at all. The cell just displays the function text itself instead of the desired answer.

Here is what I am requesting:

Assistance with writing the VBA code to accomplish the manual task of converting the text to numbers. I have tried to format using the Ribbon without success.

Convert To Number..
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.

Number Of The Week In Month

I know how to calculate this on an annual basis (i.e. 1 to 52) but not within the month.

This is what I have so far...

=IF(OR(D58=1, D58>=D57), ROUNDUP(DAY(D61)/7,0),ROUNDUP(DAY(D61)/7,0)+1)

d58 is a Weeday formula looking at d61 which is the date i want to look at. d57 is the weekday number of the first day of the month in cell d61.

Convert Number To Decimal
I need a formula to take the numbers listed in cells D4:D50

If below 1,000,000 than just keep that number value


If the Ten Thousands place is 5 or below leave the same if it is higher round up. (use this concept for ALL PLACE VALUES

1,500,000 to 1.5 million (if the rest are zeros)

4,000,000 to 4 million

1,564,535 than to 1.57 million

1,545,535 than to 1.54 million

1,555,000 than to 1.55 million

Same concept for the rest as the Millions (move the rounded place up as needed)

So for Billions it would be 10 Millions place (to round form) I think lol

1,000,000,000 to 1 Billion

1,500,000,000 to 1.5 Billion

1,560,000,000 to 1.57 Billion

1,578,000,000 to 1.58 Billion

1,700,000,000 to 1.7 Billion

I would like this to continue all the way up to place value 999 QUADILLION! (if possible) if the value can go bigger that would be great!

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
Selection.NumberFormat = "000,000,000"
ElseIf .Range("AL9") = "Trends" Then
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
