Converting Cell's Formula To Plain Value

Jan 27, 2009

I have whole bunch of formula's added to cells by code. So far so good. How could I then set in macro code that the result is stored in cell as value rather than formula? Now when I go to cell you can see =PIBVSearch(.... yadda yadda yadda in the field above.

I would prefer to change it so that content of cell changes to it's value so there's no formula visible(and above all not stored to harddisk(LOTS of disk space lost. Whole project started to trim down 269Mb excel file into smaller piece! I don't want it to go back there too easily...) or in danger of getting updated which might take a very long time easily).

Code works so that as long as there's rows which haven't got update yet but do have product run code(or something like that. Not quite sure what that number is but I figure it's product run) after code reached that far(which it copied from another file). Then for each row it calls functions for each cell which are responsible for filling invidual cells.

So either way to replace content of whole row with values or invidual cells, I can insert both into loop easily though whole row after cells are calculated would be a) faster to add(just one place to add, not 30...) and likely faster to run(project is about getting the file to run faster afterall...).

VBA Paste Plain Text

Jan 19, 2007

I'm using Excel 2000.

I have a worksheet full of formulas that I can manually copy and paste into a new sheet, but when I try to do it using a macro, it fails.

My lines look like this:

shtTemp.Range("A1").PasteSpecial xlPasteAll

Which works fine, except that most of my source data are formulae. When I try to paste like this:

PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False

I crash.

Is there a way in VBA to paste special? All I want is plain text, no formatting or wrapping...

Considers My Formulas As Plain Text

Jun 30, 2006

Sometimes Excel just stops processing certain formulas on a worksheet and
considers the as plain text (regardless of the fact that the cell contents
starts with an equation sign "="). For example formula "=1+2" doesn't show
anymore as "3" but as "=1+2", as if it's only a string of text .But if I type
the same formula in the cell next to it, it shows the correct result "3".

Also, when I try to evaluate the formula, excel tells me that "the cell
currently being evaluated contains a constant" -- so its not about wether my
formulas are "visible" (tools-options-view-formulas) or not. The number of my
formulas asre always under the maximum 1024 characters.

Save PDF As Accessible Text Instead Of Plain Text

Oct 17, 2011

I recently built an Excel macro that takes a manually generated accessible-text file made using Adobe Acrobat, parses it and processes the data in a number of ways. Rather than open the text file I would like instead to open the original PDF, save or export it in accessible-text format (not plain text) then process the data. I've been able to find some code that opens the pdf then saves it as plain text but then half the data is missing; thus, I need to save it as accessible text.

Here's the code I've found that works that I'm currently using (I realize it's probably JavaScript but it seems to get the job at least partly done

Sub test()

Dim AcroXApp As Object
Dim AcroXAVDoc As Object
Dim AcroXPDDoc As Object

[Code] .....

Perhaps there's an alternate format in which to save rather than "plain-text", but I just can't seem to find out what it is.

Converting Formula To UDF

Jul 10, 2008

creating a formula that would convert a string like 63008 (Mdyy format) to a format that Excel can read as a date


In other words IF(the length of the cell value is 5, parse the date this way, otherwise parse it another way)

If I2=63008, this would output 6/30/2008

I want to convert this to a function since that formula is rather tedious to type out, but I am new to Excel programming

Converting Formula To VBA Code

Nov 10, 2011

I have a working formula that I want to convert to vba code... I only want to store the formula result in each cell in my range, not the formula itself. It is an ARRAY formula (entered with CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER) and it would be ideal if it could follow R1C1 format to keep it relative for each cell.

Here is the formula as it's entered in my spreadsheet:

=INDEX(PerfMetricTbl!$U$2:$U$250000, MATCH(1, (PerfMetricTbl!$A$2:$A$250000=$A2)*(PerfMetricTbl!$D$2:$D$250000=$D2)*(PerfMetricTbl!$Q$2:$Q$250000=$Q2)*(PerfMetricTbl! $R$2:$R$250000=Z$1), 0)))

I am not super familiar with using INDEX/Match combos which is why I am struggling with this one...

The end result should be:

For each cell in myRange
cell.value = 'Formula result here
Next cell


If possible to fill the range in one step:

myRange.value = 'Formula Result Here, utilizing R1C1 relative reference... (this may be a stretch given the range is 55krows x 18 columns)

The problem at hand is I need to fill a range of approx. 999,000 cells with values and the values are a VLOOKUP with 4 matching criteria. So returning the value from Col U on my LookupTbl when the criteria in Col's A, D, Q, and R are an exact match to my values in A, D, Q, and Z:AQRow1.

Converting Text To Formula

May 28, 2006

I have an excel work book where in one page (sheet1) contains formula types to be used based on a code. and in the other page (Sheet 2) when I enter the code I need it to get the formula from 1st page and then do the calculation in the second based on the code. Ex : Sheet 1

Code Formula
0 Cell A * CellB
1 Cell B - Cell A*5%
2 (Cell A + Cell B)*10%

In Sheet 2

Cell A B C D ..........

Price(A) Units(B) Code Amount

100 5 0 500 (100*5)
100 5 1 answer (5 - (100*5%)
100 5 2 answer (100+5)*10%

I hope you got the picture. The problem is I'm not sure how to take only the formula from 1st sheet and then use it in the 2nd sheet to do the calculation.
I wont mind using a form for this even.

Converting Formula Result To A Word

Jan 13, 2014

I have two sheets, the first called 'AF' and the other called 'POR'. For one of the columns in the 'AF' sheet I used the following formula - VLOOKUP(B2,POR!$A$2:$A$111254,1,FALSE) to retrieve a string consisting of 7 numerical digits (Ex. 4678451). Now if I want this result of 7 digits in the same 'AF' sheet to be converted to the word "YES" - how do I achieve this? (All the 7 digits numbers are different or unique). Is there some sort of REPLACE command I use here or some other means?

Converting Worksheet Formula To VBA Code

Jul 6, 2006

I'm having a slight problem as I cannot find a way to translate the following code from my worksheet formula to VBA: =IF(LEN(A1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"-",""))=1,A1,MID(A1,1,FIND("-",A1,FIND("-",A1)+1)-1)). The code takes a value from one cell and takes the part that I need. There are two main types of inputs, they are in the form:


The lengths are variable, but for the sake of showing you an example I have simplified it to the previous. The formula takes the part of the string that is before and after the first hyphen and puts it in the cell next to it.

Converting Score Sheet To LOOKUP Formula?

Apr 13, 2009

I have a paper-based scoring sheet that we use to determine a rating category. I cannot figure out how to convert this scoring sheet into a lookup region and use some type of LOOKUP formula to determine the rating. I have looked at the various Grading examples on the Internet that show you how to look up a grade, based on a score, but they only look up a grade, based on a single input (the score).

Here I have two values going in--the person's age and their score, and I need to look up the rating, which is the column heading.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I've attached a sample spreadsheet which shows the original scoring sheet.

Altering A Existing Formula For Converting Bond Prices

Mar 31, 2009


Ok i have a formula that i use to convert bond prices, which are in 32nds to numbers that excel can understand. I use the formula:


This allows me to type 101-16 in and excel recognizes this as 101.5

My problem is that my data I am copying into the sheet is often in 1/8ths. So the price will come in as 101-272, which means 101-27 and 2/8 (or 1/4).

I admittedly dont understand this formula and just use. Can someone help me tweak it to recognize the third digit?

Converting Excel Formula To MS Project Custom Field?

Mar 20, 2014

A coworker is setting up an MS Project...project, and adding a custom field that would convert the Start date field into our Fiscal Quarter Fiscal Week schema, to display as FQFW, e.g. Q1W1. I've written the formula in excel, but I've never even touched Project until this week. Apparently it doesn't take formulas quite the same way as Excel does. I tried using the ''Switch" function in Project, and it worked, but it only accepts 14 arguments, and there are obviously 52 weeks we're dealing with. Would there be a way to do this using VBA? (I know next to nothing here as well.)

How To Break External Reference Link Without Converting Formula To Value Within Sheet

I was trying to break a external reference link (from Data File) from Data _ Edit Link, but it is converting all the formula to value. How is it possible to break only the external link without damaging the formula within the sheet say c1 = A1+B1+26 (value from data file c1)

Excel 2007 :: Converting Formula From Absolute To Relative Reference?

Aug 13, 2013

I am migrating a bookkeepping spreadsheet from Quattro v12 (c2001) to Excel 2007 and have hit a stone wall over relative 3-D references.

In this workbook each sheet holds data for one month, and this includes some lagging-12-month calculations -- that is, summing a range on a single cell for the preceding 12 sheets (including this one).

Unexpectedly, this formula:

gives absolute references, even though I put in no dollar signs after the sheet names. This means it gives the wrong answer when copied to the next sheet to start a new month.

I can find no reference at all to converting the above formula from absolute to relative reference.

Converting Dates To Cell Value?

Aug 20, 2014

Backstory: I am converting PDF documents to Excel files and some of the numbers are being transformed into a wonky date format which to the ***** eye looks semi correct but the underlying value in the formula bar is incorrect. Basically I need to copy and paste the value but when I paste special values it doesnt work. Below is the example

The cell value should be: 9856 When it is converted to excel the value shows 98 5 6 but in the formula bar it shows: 5/6/2098 The cell is formated as: Custom yy m d;@

If I get the value in the cell to read 98 5 6 I can use trim or something to get it down to 9856 but the issue is when I use those functions they return 72446. I guessing this is because they read the formula value not the cell value.

I need to somehow get the value in the formula bar to read 9856.

Distance Between Xy Coordinates Not Converting Properly With Absolute Cell Use

May 14, 2014

I have a spread sheet that I am finding distance between xy coordinates and then trying to convert that distance into miles.

VB : =If(E2+F2=0,"",SQRT((E2-B2)^2+(F2-B3)^2))/1.6093

However, the division part only works in the first cell in the column correctly and then does not work in the rest of the column cells correctly. The difference in the code is that the first cell has no "$" in it and the rest of the cells in the column have the "$" in them.

VB : =If(E2+F2=0,"",SQRT(((E2-B$2)^2)+(F2-B$3)^2))

Converting Cell Values To TEXT For Conditional Test

Apr 28, 2006

I have a macro that takes a value of one cell ("Cells(iFoundPass, 5")) and makes another cell (Admin_Level) equal it (the valules can be wither 'Administartor' or 'Standard'). When someone runs a macro it checks to see if "Admin_Level" equals "Administrator". The problem is that when that first macro runs, even if ("Cells(iFoundPass, 5")= "Administartor" and then "Admin_Level" will be made "Administrator" , my IF/THEN statements do not work. I think this is because the value of "Admin_Level"("Administrator" in the example above) is not text. I can't seem to figure out why. I do know, though, if I manually enter in 'Administrator' in the cell name "Admin_Level" then my IF/THEN works.

Sheets("Config").Range("Admin_Level") = Sheets("Config").Cells(iFoundPass, 5)

and then this is the logical check that runs anytime someone wants to run a macro...

If wb.Worksheets("Config").Range("Admin_Level") <> "Administrator" Then
End If
