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 use web queries to download stock options from MSN Money. If I manually refresh the queries (right click -refresh) the downloaded prices are in number format.

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.

I'm looking for the VBA command for this function. I tried just recording a macro in where I perform the task but it didn't record anything. Tried it several times even.

we work with both Lotus 123 and Excel 2003. Lotus will be gone next year, but for now, the official mean to publish our reports is Lotus. With my work, I copy/paste a Lotus page to Excel. I use the following macro to convert Lotus format numbers (which Excel considers as text) to real numbers:

Sub ForceToNumber() Dim wSheet As Worksheet For Each wSheet In Worksheets With wSheet . Range("IV65536") = vbNullString .Range("IV65536").Copy .UsedRange.PasteSpecial xlPasteValues, xlPasteSpecialOperationAdd End With Next wSheet End Sub

Source : http://www.ozgrid.com/forum/showthre...087#post184087. The problem is that I need to send back this data in Lotus. Excel considers decimal numbers with a coma as real numbers and numbers with a dot as a text. This previous macro fixes that. However, Lotus works the other way. Only numbers with a dot are considered real numbers. So I would need to find a way to code a macro that converts any numbers in the Excel sheet to a number with a dot. It's a bit like doing the opposite operation.

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".

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?

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 ?

im working on making a price list from a pdf file. however, the pdf file has the prices in euros listed as 1.300,00 and 765,00 and 45,00 and 1.565,00 . i was wondering if there was a tool or so in excel that can change the comma and periods in the number so they read as american format like 1,300.00 and 765.00 and 45.00 .and also if there is a formula or so to convert these numbers to Dollars in another column.

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 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)

Is there any formula or easy way to automate the changing of a numeric input into words, eg if you input 100 in one cell, the output in another would be "one hundred"?

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.

I am receiving a monthly breakdown of postage costs by department but the values are received in a text format of 1 234,56.

I need to convert these to numbers.

I have replaced the comma with a full and tried to use =substitute(cell ref," ","") to remove the spaces in those numbers exceeding Â£1000 but this does not seem to work.

I have this value in a cell 38761.8296804781 which is displaying as 38,762. I want to display it as $38,761,829. Is this possible without going through each cell and moving the decimal point?

We are doing a database conversion and I have been tasked with converting all our old promotion codes to a new system. The long and the short of it is this:

I am trying to write an equation that will look at two cells (say A1 & B1) which when put together could be one of the following numbers (01,02,03,04,05,06,07,08,09,10,11,12) and translate them to a letter (A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,J,K,M,N)

So 01=A, 02=B and so on...

I was trying to use if statements, but there are too many.

Do you know if you can use the cell formatting to change the sign of a number? For example, the cell contains 123.45, but I want it to show as -123.45. I don’t want to use a formula to multiply by -1, because the data is being extracted from a database and I have to do a fair amount of work on the report with the formulas to do that.

I can format the number and it shows a minus but will not use the minus if I then use it in a calcualtion. I could use a calcualtion with a *-1 in it but for ease of use by other users who may take part of the Excel report it would be better if I could format the number to negative.
