Converting Number To Text From Refreshed Query

Jan 29, 2009

I am importing data from an access database that is continually refreshed. Some of the data that is returned to my Excel sheet is in binary, where a "0" represents an unchecked box on the database program and a "1" represents the same box, but with a check mark. I want to change the data so that when it is updated on my Excel sheet it is converted to text as either "Yes" or "No" instead of "1" or "0", respectively. I'm sure this is pretty elementary stuff but I have tried VBE and cell formulas and can't come up with an answer.

Converting Text To Number

Mar 16, 2009

I am currently trying to find an easy way to convert cell references to number format. The issue I'm having is when compiling a small formula (CONCATENATE) as part of a macro in order to produce a unique reference number to a column of data (1000's of cells long) I come accross the age old number stored as text issue after the macro has converted the formula to values.

Have tried editing the macro to number stored as text = false which removes the annoying little red triangle but the vlookup functions still wont read the values. My current solution is to highlight the entirity of the data and convert to number which takes a long long time as there are multiple lookups assigned to the cells, which for my current project is not acceptable.

Am looking for a quick solution, (with no interaction required) something that would convert the cells to the format required either before the formula is assigned and overwritten by values or just after. Currently I'm stumped.

Converting Text To Number

Jan 25, 2013

I have a formula which extracts a number from a text string.

The text string is in A2 - the formula which extracts the number is in B2

However - when I copy the data in B2 and paste values to another sheet / cell - the forumla is as text - and I get the little green corner symbol and I have to convert to number.

Some VBA code - that will automatically convert my extracted "number" - to an actual number in number format.

Converting Number To Text For SQL?

Sep 26, 2011

I have the following SQL that works fine...

= "SELECT [ID] FROM [Data Connection TBL] WHERE ([DateSentYear]= ""1992"" AND [DateRcvdYear]= ""1992"");"

However, if I create loops to cycle thru the years, the following doesn't work?

= "SELECT [ID] FROM [Data Connection TBL] WHERE ([DateSentYear]= " & CStr(x) & " AND [DateRcvdYear]= " & CStr(y) & ");"
Is CStr not right?

Converting Text To A Number ..

Apr 29, 2006

I need to convert some text to a number. I was wondering if there is a way to do it in Excel. Like, for example, the date 3/14/2006 can be converted to 38790. Is there any function in Excel that can convert a word to a number?

Example would be (numbers are totally random)

md_bla_bla_02 would convert to something like 3452615261502

Keep Number Format When Converting To Text

Jun 30, 2009

I have an excel file that is used to create a large text file. This is all done manually so I wrote some code to create the file automatically. I have everything working except that I am losing some info. The info is zeros after the decimal point. Almost all of the cells are formatted as numbers with 3 decimal places. It is common to have values of 0.000 that end up just 0 when they are written to the text file. Is there a way to keep the formatting (all decimal places)? Here is an example of code that I am using to write data directly from a cell to the file.

Converting Number Stored As Text

Mar 12, 2012

I have a spreadsheet which has over 30,000 records. One column is a row of numbers stored in a General format. Some of these numbers are however stored as Text and have the following Error Check:

"The number in this cell is stored as Text or preceded by an apostrophe"

As a result, when I try to import this sheet into Access, the numbers are not imported and appear as blank cells in the Table.

Is there a way either manually or programatically, format the column so all cells in that column are stored as a number and do not have the issue of being stored as text?

Sep 9, 2009

I have a macro that goes out to a database and pulls in updated numbers. However the numbers come in as text because they have leading 0's:


The only way I can get the numbers formatted as a number and drop the leading 0 is to click on the yellow exclamation tab that pops up and click, Convert to Number. Is there any way I can write this into my macro to automatically do for me? I tried selecting the column and reformatting this way but it would not drop the leading zero:

So I have a code that creates a refreshable list of sheet names in a TOC (I call it a "directory" in the code). Problem is it creates the ugly standard hyper link look.

How to keep the formatting permanent?

Here is the macro I am using - [Code] ..........

Taking Text In A Long Column And Converting It Into Corresponding Text In Another?

Sep 27, 2013

I have two columns that read:


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?

Excel 2010 :: Auto Sort When Sheet Is Refreshed (F9)

Nov 6, 2012

I've only recently began to use excel, but I've really dived deep into it, I'm clueless when it comes to VBA but now I'm stepping into that realm. Anyway, I'm using this code....


Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A:A")) Is Nothing Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
Me.Sort.SortFields.Add Key:=Range("A:A"), SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlAscending, DataOption:=xlSortNormal
With Me.Sort



Credits to VOG

Link: auto-sort for excel 2010.... to auto sort 2 columns of data. However, it is extremely tedious to enter data as it sorts itself every time you enter a new data point. Moreover, using any random number generator to fill the columns takes ages! Is there anyway to make it so the code only runs when the worksheet is refreshed (F9 pressed.)

Vlookup (name Range Change Dynamically When The Pivot Table Is Refreshed)

Oct 26, 2009

I have the following vlookup formula in my spreadsheet.

IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP($A2,'Purchase Order Pivot Table'!$5:$500,67,FALSE)),0,VLOOKUP($A2,'Purchase Order Pivot Table'!$5:$500,67,FALSE))

It works perfectly for my current requirement, but it looks at data in a pivot table which is created from a dataset. If I name the columns in the pivot table so instead of looking at column 67 it looks at a name range will this name range change dynamically when the pivot table is refreshed? If not how can I get it to.
