Convert Text String To Integer

Feb 16, 2014

I've got an odd program that exports time data formatted as a text string. For example....


Since it has no numerical value, then I can't simply "format as number". I'm thinking that I will need to use one of the string methods eg: mid() to check each character individually and then convert that into the equivalent numerical value.

So the numerical output I am looking for in the above example would be 625.

Convert Text String To A Date?

Aug 23, 2009

My database has 6 fields names and I have created the following code to capture and post data to the database form a userform. It works but I am sure there is a more efficient and elegant way to do this. The two areas I would like advice are:
1. converting the date string to a date.
2. the line of code where I subtract line6 from line4.

Convert Text String Into Excel Date With VBA

Aug 13, 2013

I have a date range that looks like this (British date style, not US):

edit: I posted an image but it can't be seen for some reason:

Date Range
2010 11/10 17/10
2010 11/10 17/10
2010 11/10 17/10
2010 11/10 17/10

Thus the first cell show 11 October 2010 to 17 October 2010 I want to return just the first day (the week commencing date):

edit: I posted an image but it can't be seen for some reason:

Week Commencing

I have written some VBA to the best of my ability but it seems clumsy using the FORMAT function. Is there a better of doing this with VBA. I can't seem to find a function in VBA which is the equivalent of the formula function DATE.

Sub ConvertTextToBritStyleDate()
' dd/mm/yyyy (not mm/dd/yyyy)
' Select the cells containing the dates (not the header)

VBA Concatenate String & Integer

Sep 19, 2009

I am trying to concatenate some string and integer. It is always for previous month end date, i.e, 7/31/2009 or 8/31/2009.

Here is I have the data now
Profit and Loss for
After running the macro I would like to be
Profit and Loss for 8/31/2009
Here is what I wrote so far which does not work. I am sure there is simpler way to do it. I put the month end date 5 columns to the right for the time being and in the intention after deleting it after concatenation automatically.

For Each cell In Selection

ActiveCell.Offset(0, 5).Value = "=EOMONTH(TODAY(),-1)"
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 5).Activate
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Selection.NumberFormat = "m/d/yyyy"

Check For Integer Or Text

Apr 13, 2007

I'm on a time crunch and can't remember or seem to be able to find how to check if a value stored in a variable is a number or is text.

I want to be able to define QTY under the general public definition with no designation (i.e. integer, date, on.)

The variable QTY could be anything and I grab some parsed data from a cell, if it is filled with a number I want to keep it, if not I want to delete it.

I know how to keep it or delete it, I just need to know how to check for integers...(check to see if it is a number from the keypad...I can still store it as text -- maybe integer isn't the best word).

I see you (whomever you is) fixed the "Deletked" in the message is now Deleted. I can't give you a hard time about not following the rules now.

If Integer Function And Combine Value And Text

Oct 12, 2008

I'm trying to write a statement something like: B1 = data. B2=IF(B1/8=0,"",IF(B1/8=INTEGER,B1/8 & "8/8",B1/8+1)). This is meant to identify which relay on a relay board is associated with the given data. For example if data=3, B2 = 1 3/8 meaning the 3rd relay on board 1. If data = 77, B2 = 10 5/8 meaning the 5th relay on board 10. I could do without the 10, but the 5th relay on that board is important to me. In summary, I think my trouble is identifying when the product of B1/8 is an integer. I may also be having trouble combining value and text. Well, there it is. I may very well be going about it all wrong.

UDF To Convert String To Abbreviation?

Mar 18, 2013

I would like to have a UDF to convert any text string to an abbreviation. For example, "Del Puerto Creek at HWY" would be converted to DPCAH. Or "this text string" would be converted to TTS. This has to work on any string of any length in any cell. I guess the UDF would pass each character through a loop and extract the letter immediately after a space and capitalize the letter if it is not already in uppercase. The UDF would have to have the ability to drag using relative references. For example: =AbbrevTxt(A1). It does not matter what the UDF is named.

I cannot figure out how to do it. Can anyone help?

After that, I'm hoping to use the Range variables in a Goal Seek.

Dim myMatch As Double
Dim myCell As String
Dim myStart As Range
Dim myIRR As String
Dim myR1 As Range
Dim myR2 As Range

myMatch = WorksheetFunction.Match(0.25, Range("K67:DZ67"))
myCell = Range("HurdleStart").Offset(0, myMatch).Address
myIRR = Range("IRRStart").Offset(0, myMatch).Address

' myR1 = myIRR value
' myR2 = myCell value

Range(myR1).GoalSeek Goal:=0.25, ChangingCell:=Range(myR2)

Convert A String To A Range

Apr 1, 2009

I'm working in Excel 2003. Is there a way to convert strings to Ranges on the Excel commandline?

I have a lookup function in an estimate sheet that uses 2 ranges, stored as strings, in another worksheet. They are used to return a price from another workbook. When I use named ranges to access them with the lookup function, it doesn't work. But when I cut and paste the strings into the commandline it works prefectly?

$A10 = Part Number to search for

MaterialOptions is a named Range
eg: '[Catalog.xls]PriceList'!$A$13:$A$17

PriceOptions is a named Range
eg: '[Catalog.xls]PriceList'!$Z$13:$Z$17

LOOKUP($A10,MaterialOptions,PriceOptions) = #VALUE!
LOOKUP($A10,'[Catalog.xls]PriceList'!$A$13:$A$17,'[Catalog.xls]PriceList'!$Z$13:$Z$17) = Success!

Convert String To Object Or Function

Apr 11, 2007

I do not know if this is possible in VBA, but I am hoping it is as it will make my life much easier.

Is it possible to say have a TextBox and a CommandButton, that does the following?

Public Sub Execute()

Dim ObjectName As String
Dim Object As Object

ObjectName = txtObject.Text
Set Object = ObjectName


End Sub

Or to take it a step further:

Public Sub Execute()

Dim ObjectName As String
Dim FunctionName As String
Dim Object As Object

ObjectName = txtObject.Text
FunctionName = txtFunction.Text
Set Object = ObjectName


End Sub

Are there any inbuilt functions that will create/reference an object based on a string containing the name of the object or function?
