For my research in medicine I build a spreadsheet with google docs. After having received most of the data I transfered the spreadsheet into an excel file. The next thing I would like to do is to convert the words in the spreadsheet into numbers so I can calculate with them. For example: every row in column E consist of one of the two words: 'man' or 'woman'. I would like to convert the word 'man' into a '0' and the word 'woman' into a '1'. Is it possible to write a formula or function for this?
I've been using conventional method to do this and it's time consuming. I would like to total up 2 column. A multiply B to be exact. Below are some examples:
Table 1 - Before totaling up:
Quantity Product 5 2 x Button A White 3 4 x Button B Pink 4 5 x Ribbon A Black 2 3 x Thread A White 6 2 x Cloth A Blue
Table 2 - After totaling up:
Quantity Product 10 Button A White 12 Button B Pink 20 Ribbon A Black 6 Thread A White 12 Cloth A Blue
I need to have the sum of the "Quantity" multiply "Product". Or in short A x B. And the end result need to have the number and "x" sign removed while keeping on the the products names. (2 x ) Take note it's "number" space "symbol" space.
Note : It works for a value having two decimal places. It truncates if you have a value having more than two decimal places. Note : The following formula can convert amount one less than 1 trillion into words.
For example : $ 1,250.50 = One Thousand Two Hundred Fifty Dollars and Fifty Cents
See attached file. A colleague is downloading rows of data from a website which contains a number field Excel is currently treating as Text after being pasted in. My spreadsheet includes just a sample of the many rows of data however as you can see the VALUE function refuses to convert these text values to numbers. How these might be converted and why the VALUE function refuses to work in this case?
I'm trying to format numbers in a cell into words. For example, if I type 1 in a cell, I would like it to show the word Optimistic. If i type 2 in the cell I would like it to show the word "Realistic", 3 to show "Pessimistic".
EXCEL FORMULA CHALLENGE:Needs a formula like as above , expand the formula to generate from One to Nine Hundred Ninety Nine Thousand Nine Hundred & Ninety Nine? 1 to 999,999,999 all numbers into words between this range ?
I have a column with the month as the full word (January or February, etc.). I need to translate the words to numbers in a separate column (1 or 2, etc.) I haven't been able to find a function that can help perform this task. "If" statements will not go further than 8 levels. The month function will not recognize it because it's not part of a full date. What other options do I have? I feel like I'm missing something obvious here...
I am attempting to create a chart from data generated outside of Excel 2003 SP2, that has been Copied and Pasted into Excel. There is no metadata associated with this data. I have created a list with the data once it has been pasted into Excel 2003 SP2.
The Workbook has five (5) worksheets, all with the default names (Sheet1, Sheet2, etc.). I paste the data into Sheet1 and reference this from the other worksheets. Sheet2 shows the charts for all the data. Sheet3, Sheet4, and Sheet5 are each for different regions, North, South and West respectively. I would like to enter the formula into Cell: Sheet5!M5 so it auto populates with the appropriate and correct information. Sheet1 information is as follows;
Column B has a header of "CreateDate" and is in the format of; 4-Jun-07 Column O has a header of "Business Unit" and has three (3) possible answers, North, South or West. **I have attached a screen shot of the two colums used named, "Columns.Used.png". I have hidden the columns in between as they contain confidential information.**
I would like a formula that gives a total of one if both criteria are met. The criteria is as follows;
IF Column B on Sheet1 equals Cell L5 on Sheet5 AND Column O on Sheet1 equals West THEN the total should appear. **I have created and attached a sample spreadsheet "Sample.Data.zip"that contains only basic data on Sheet1 and Sheet5 as those are the only sheets relevant.**
I need a way to randomly generate a number( up to hundred trillion) in cell A1 and in cell B1 have the number appear in word form. Example: 129,114,023,131,453 will appear in A1 and in B1: one hundred twenty-nine trillion one hundred four-teen billion twenty-three million one hundred thirty-one thousands four hundred fifty-three The hyphens are important, commas between the numbers are not necessary. I know that for A1 I can use Randbetween() function to generate the numbers. The problem is generating the word form with the hyphens....
I am trying to extract numbers after a specific text in a text, for eg :
abc SN 12345 xyz edf SN No. 456 mno
As per above, i want to extract any numbers afters "SN". the numbers can be vary in digits i.e. it can be 3 digit numbers or 4 or 6. Also, at times there is some other text in between (like SN No.) numbers and search word (i.e. SN)
I would like to know if I can do a VBA code that takes one formule that is showed as text in one cell (eg '=wood+plastic) to the next cell to really use it... I mean, that one time we define de "wood" valeu and plastic valeu will realize the calcul.
The back story is that from a system we use, when you download data from inside it, Excel treats most of the cells with a "Number Stored As Text" error. I had problems with this and it was just generally annoying so I wrote the below macro that converts each of the cells back to general cells and reinputs the data, essentially reseting the cell and keeping the data. Being that this is a loop, it takes a good while to run if alot of data was downloaded. Any idea's on how to speed it up besides screen updating? Note, other stuff happens in the first macro, but it is just cosmetic non-intensive things. It calls the second macro because I wanted them seperate should I want to just run the second.
Sub CleanData() Application. ScreenUpdating = False ' Find the Right most cell and the Bottom most cell and ' run the macro from A1 to this cell recursively Range("IV1").End(xlToLeft).Select Col = Selection.Column Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Select Row = Selection.Row Range("A2").Select Range("A1", Cells(Row, Col)).Select Application.Run ("FixTextAsNumberError") Application.ScreenUpdating = True ' End Sub..............
Public Sub add_tick_marks() Dim c As Range For Each c In Selection If Not IsError(c.Value) Then If Left(c.Value, 1) <> "'" And c.Value <> "" Then If InStr(c.Value, "E+") > 0 Then c.Value = "'" & c.Formula Else
I use these because I frequently copy billing account numbers that have leading zeros from some proprietary software and work with them in Excel. I need the leading zeros to facilitate VLookUp's. When I paste the data into Excel it truncates the leading zeros. My typical procedure is:
1. Copy a column of values from our proprietary software 2. Paste it in Excel (Ctrl+V) 3. While newly pasted data is still selected I hit Ctrl+1 which brings up the Format Cells form. 4. I double click "Text" 5. I re-paste into Excel (Ctrl+V) 6. I run my macro to add tic marks to the values so the leading zeros never get lost.
The problem occurs when I copy multiple columns of data and paste it in Excel. If one of the columns of data contains numbers or currency then I select that range of values and run the macro to get rid of the tic marks. After running the macro the numbers are still treated as text. When I select a range of those values and right-click on the status bar and select " Sum" there is no value. No big deal, I just highlight them and format the cells as numbers or currency. But after formatting them as numbers or currency, they retain their format as text until I click in the formula bar for each individual cell and hit enter, at which time they take on the number or currency format I have chosen and the sum can then be displayed in the status bar.
How can I force the formatting I chose to take effect on the data immediately without me having to individually "fake change" the data in each cell?
I have text as numbers downloaded to excel sheets from crystal that i need to add together on a summary sheet. I've tried using Value, TRIM and CLEAN functions to no avail. the TYPE function is reading the cell as Text and I have also tried multiplying by 1. Does anybody know how I can get around this ? hopefully I've attached an extract of the file
I have a worksheet with a row of mixed cells near the top. By "mixed", I mean some cells have only numeric data (numeric-cells) and some have only words (word-cells).
GOAL: I want to sort the columns to the following order:
First all the columns with only numeric-cells in the mixed row, with those columns sorted in DESCENDING numeric order of the numeric-cells in the mixed row; followed by the columns with only word-cells in the mixed row sorted by ASCENDING alphabetic order.
So far all I have been able to accomplish is:
First all the columns with only numeric-cells in the mixed row, with those columns sorted in ASCENDING numeric order of the numeric-cells in the mixed row; followed by the columns with only word-cells in the mixed row sorted by ASCENDING alphabetic order. This was accomplished by a simple sort using ASCENDING order on the mixed row.
First all the columns with only word-cells in the mixed row, with those columns sorted in DESCENDING alphabetic order of the word-cells in the mixed row; followed by the columns with only numeric-cells in the mixed row sorted by DESCENDING numeric order. This was accomplished by a simple sort using DESCENDING order on the mixed row.
This may sound as confusing to you as it does to me, so I have attached an example file showing hypothetical Input Data and the Desired Result.
I did the example file in multiple steps, but that's too painful in the general case where calculations determine what is in which cell in the mixed row. All data are calculated, even the word-cell data AND so dependent on other data, and the columns in the mixed row that are word-cells and those that are numeric cells don't remain the same.
Eventually I'd like to do this with a macro, so if VBA has some power to do this that EXCEL commands don't, then that's fine.
I could probably live with the final result as numeric-cell columns sorted in DESCENDING order followed by word-cell columns sorted in DESCENDING order, but I haven't even been able to accomplish that AND it's not quite the goal.
I'm trying to build a function, but I haven't been able to successfully navigate some of the eccentricities of Excel formula-building.
Right now I am working on counting all of the cells that contain numbers (so likely just a =COUNT function), but will be eventually getting other descriptive stats as well. My problem is that I would like to create a formula that will perform the counting/mean calculation, etc., but only on a specific column that has the header cell that contains several specific words. Rather than having to type in the target words for each column, I would like to have the target words in the function be imported from multiple designated cells.
I want to find how many numbered cells are found in column E headed as "dog brown," but I also have columns headed as "cat brown" "dog black" etc. (which I will be using the formula on later) to paint a small picture, in my descriptive table, "dog" is in B31 and "brown" is in C30, then "cat" in B32 and "black" in D30.
I have a column with rows from 41:254, the first cell contains a word, and the next is blank, and this repeats the whole way down.
a previous macro i run changes one of the cells in the range (one of the ones containing a word) to a number value, i want to write a further macro to select this cell that has now changed. when it changes it will be the only cell in the range with a number in.
I have a set of data in once cell and its strung out. I'm trying to pull the numbers that follow certain words from that data. That's easy enough with the find and mid function for the first one. But after that I have a repeating word (see below) and different numbers that follow it. So I want to pull the second number string after that word, the third and so on.
I've attached an excel file that explains this better.
I have a workbook full of six digit numbers that I need to manipulate but can't. They have been data-dumped from a server and copied as non-numeric values.
I have tried EVERYTHING I could find on how to convert these column cells to numeric fields:
Multiplying by 1 - didn't work VBA Code - For Each xCell In Range("a1:a1012") xCell.Value = xCell.Value Next xCell -didn't work Format Cells as numbers - didn't work Format Cells as general - didn't work Remove Spaces - didn't work Text to Columns - didn't work
