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.
I am trying to determine Long Term Gain (LTG,) Long Term Loss (LTL,) Short Term Gain (STG,) Short term Loss (STL,) or No Loss nor Gain (NGL)testing two cells (A1 and B1)and setting a third cell (C1) to the text LTG, LTL, STG, STL, or NGL depending on the results of testing cells A1 and B1.
A1 represent a number of years and B1 represent gains or losses (negative)in dolars.
The way I see the logic is as follows:
If cell A1 or cell B1 are either one of them equal to 0, then it is neither a Gain nor a Loss (NGL.)
If cell A1 is greater than or equal to 1, then it is Long Term; else, if A1 is greater than 0 and less than 1, then it is Short Term.
On the other hand, if cell B1 is greater than 0, then it is a Gain; if B1 is less than 0 (a negative number,) then, it is a Loss.
I need to find (if it is posible in Excel) one formula to test the two cells for posible outcomes:
If A1 = 0 then C1 = NGL If B1 = 0 then C1 = NGL If A1 >= 1 and B1 > 0 the C1 = LTG. If A1 >= 1 and B1 < 0 the C1 = LTL. If A1 < 1 and B1 > 0 then C1 = STG If A1 < 1 and B1 < 0 then C1 = STL
i am having a problem here,i Have got two columns one for item name other for item quantity.the quantity field has data like: 2+2+8 5+5 2+9 5 666+98 258 6+89+7+4+2+4+5 .....etc.
i need to calculate the total of all the cells like the first has sum 12,second has 10 ,fourth has 5 .Now i can get the sum by simply putting a " = " in the start of the cell but the problem is that ive got 8000+ cells putting = manually will kill me.
I want to reference 2 cells to open a msgbox. Currently I use this formula in a cell "=IF(E4="C",IF(A4>30,"OT","")) I am trying to write a macro that will open a msgbox instead. This is what I've tried so far
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target(1, 1).Address = "$E$4" Then If Target(1, 2).Address = "$A$4" Then If Target(1, 1) = "C" Then If Target(1, 2) > "30" Then MsgBox("1") End If If Target(1, 1).Address = "$E$4" Then If Target(1, 2).Address = "$A$4" Then Target(1, 1) = "F" Then Target(1,2) > "38" Then MsgBox("2") End If
I need a function that will use a column of text values and test these values to see if one or more of the values exist in a single cell. If it does I need the function to return true or false.
Ie. cell A1 contains the text "Jim Smith" the B column contains the test names (column of test values ) ie. B1 is "bill" B2 is "fred" B3 is "jim". Because Jim is in the cell A1 I would need the function in C1 to return the value "true". If A1 contained the text "bob smith" then function in C1 would return the value "false".
I have an Excel workbook with around 100 worksheets. All of them have similar columns, but the values are stored as text. The length of columns and missingness is different in different worksheets. I will be grateful if any of you could suggest a VBA that could convert the numbers stored as text back to numbers. I have been looking for an answer for a while, but cant seem to find one that automatically looks at every worksheet and converts text into number.
In the past I have used VBA script to change column with size based on cell values as per follows:
Now I wish to change row size in a similar fashion only the criteria will be a maths function rather than a string in a single cell. The maths function will simply be a sum of cells in a row. I will need to test whether or not the row ads up to a number greater than zero.
To illustrate what I am trying to achieve I have (poorly) written out a rough attempt at the code below:
I am unsure how the syntax works for this, I considered defining the range as a string first so I could test the value of a single variable (by defined name) rather than directly referencing the row of cells in the formula. As this code needs to be repeated many time for many rows the simplest solution would be b.
scenario: Column H needs to be formatted to green if the text in Column F does not equal "Dog". Dog could be either DOG, Dog or dog. I know how to get it done with only dog, but this one is a bit tricky.
I am creating a spreadsheet to monitor horse race betting but my formulas aren't coming out right.
The problem is to do with adding winnings to a running balance or minusing each bet's stake money from the running balance if the bet loses.
I have two formulas that are giving me a problem, both are in the P column in the attached spreadsheet. The first one, located in row 2, being slightly different as it is the first data row and so contains the starting balance in the formula.
=IF(OR(J2="W",J2="P",300+S2),IF(J2="L",300-O2,"")). This produces a blank or error result.
=IF(OR(J3="W",J3="P",P2+S3),IF(J3="L",P2-O3,"")) This produces an error whatever is in the J column
Allows me to check like 10 different text values and return false for all of those in the conditional formatting rule. When those are not present, the conditional format is true thus applying the format.
I tried =NOT(FIND("text1",$A$1,1)) It did not work because I believe this statement doesnt give the rule its TRUE value its looking for.
I am having trouble with this, to clarify I need the below... Cell has conditional formatting checking for text1 text2 text3...text 10ish and if they are present nothing will happen and if they arent present then format the cell.
EDIT: to clarify, the code should look for either text1 or text2 or text3 so on...
I am trying to apply a conditional format to an entire row based on the presence of any value in the first cell of that row to format to a certain color. If there isn't something present in the first cell, I don't want it to change.
Everything I keep trying ends up highlighting the entire workbook.
I would like to apply the rule to the entire sheet but only have it highlight the rows which have a value/text in the first cell of each row.
I am assuming I should use the formulas selection for conditional formatting but I'm unsure of what formula would apply to this type of request.
I want to randomize a range of values stored in sheet 1 and insert them in another cell.
I am having values for sales consisting of product names and its price. there are 10 product names and its corresponding prices and is stored in cells E1:F10. I want to generate test data containing product names and its corresponding price. The generated data needs to be saved in the cells A1:B50
the product names needs to be randomized. This needs to be done in vba. Below is the screenshot of the final result that is needed. As you can see, I have randomized my 10 products and its prices into the test data column. This was done using vlookup formula and I need the same to be done in vba.
I have a workbook with several tabs. the first tab is a data input sheet: subtotals from this sheet get posted to cells on the other sheets. at the top of the Data sheet is a drop down validation list that the user will select the next month from. On each of the other sheets, is a grid with calendar months down the left hand side and years across the top:
I am trying to figure out a simple method to check whether there is data on any of the four other sheets in the spot corresponding to the month selected by the user on the Data tab. the format of the validation list dates are dd/mm/yyyy in cell B2 on the data tab.
The user will select a range (example, B4-Z4). The macro needs to test each cell to see if the number is in a certain range (example, is the number in the cell between 21-40, 41-60, 61-80, etc? - these ranges will not always be the same on each worksheet). If the cell is in that certain range, that cell is a 1 for that range. Example,
B4 = 23 21-40 = 1
C4 = 30 21-40 = 2
D4 = 45 41-60 = 1
After all ranges are tested, it will be graphed on a separate worksheet with the x-axis being the ranges (21-40, 41-60) and the y-axis will be the total number of cells that fit in the range. The above would be....................
My logical test is =IF("D2"="E2",1,2). When I autofill or copy down, the row numbers do not change to "D3"="E3", etc. How do I delineate text and also have the ability for autofill or copy to change the rows as it goes?
I would like to highlight cells is two conditions are met:Cell = 0Offset(0,-1)>0I tried the conditional format wizard and entered a formula: =IF(AND($J2=0,$I2>0)) But I keep receiving formual errors, which I understand, because it appears to be incomplete formula. But I am not sure what else I need to add to the formula in the conditional format wizard
The above list represents 2 columns. The left column is 400 lines long. The right column is partially complete with 2 letter codes that represent the 6 letter codes on the right. I'm trying to convert the column in the XXYZXX format to a 2 letter column and each of those 2 letters corresponds to the 6 letter column on the left. How do I do this using any method or Vlookup? How does one convert a column of text to a corresponding column of text? I don't want to have to manually type in 2 letter codes that match up the left column. What do I do instead?
I was curious if it was possible to have a cell's formatting be altered using the conditional values tool. Example: if(A1=A2,A3=redfont,A3=automaticfont). I know it wouldn't work like that, but it does show what I'd like to happen.
Cell D8 contains many different account codes. When entering into this sheet, if D8 is filled using account code 4010.12, 4010.17, or 1190.1000, then I want Cell J8 to turn a different color, flagging that cell so they know they have to fill that cell in J8, otherwise that cell will remain blank.
I want to do conditional formatting based on two cell values.
i want to do conditional format the column 'R' based on clolumns 'J' and 'R'. column 'J' is a text column named PRIORITY which can hold the values P1,P2,P3 an P4. Column 'R' is nothing but difference of two columns 'M' and 'H'(both are time stamps).Column'R' is in below format. =TEXT(M4-H4,"h:mm:ss").
column M and H are in below format:
eg: 9/11/13 9:41 AM
Now i want to format the column'R' like if column J ="P2" and column 'R' > "00:10:00"(10 mins) =it should become red. if column J="P3" and column 'R'>"00:30:00"(30 mins) = it should become red.
This is an continuation to some earlier formulations to place value correctly in cells. It started for me here: http://www.excelforum.com/excel-gene...ell-value.html
Now, I've come across another situaton. If there is a value of any combination of numerals and text "X" specifically as: 1x,21x,100x,1001x,10230x, I'd like to have the x removed. The resultant will be in column D of sheet FormulaOut. See attachment as this will be building on the following formula:
