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.
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 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.
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 saw the =WEEKNUM function introduced to Dave196. I tried it but I do not get the desired result. I get "# NAME?" What can I be doing wrong? Also, how can I have Excel take a date and convert it to a number? I want to convert a date into an invoice number (eg. 4/5/07 ===> 20070405)
I am inserting a formula into a cell using VBA, but the problem is that I don't know the letter value of column "K" (used in the middle of the line); instead, I know it as column number 11. Is there a simple way to convert the column number 11 to the column letter "K"?
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.
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…
