# Converting Reference Numbers To Titles?

Feb 3, 2014
I have exported a dataset with references numbers and I want to convert those reference numbers into the titles they refer to. I have a separate sheet that matches the reference number to the title and would normally use a LOOKUP function [=LOOKUP(A2,Key::Table 1::A,Title)] to do this but, in this instance, I have multiple reference numbers in a cell separated by commas. How can I get the function to lookup multiple numbers from the same cell?

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 need to use a vlookup, however that's not my query. In order to allow the vlookup to work, I need the reference number field in a different format. I thought I'd add a column next to it for the converted number. The number is presently in the format 99/99999, I need the number to be in the format 99999/99. What formula or function will allow me to do this?

I have a formula in a cell which is refered to other cell within the same sheet and also to other sheet from other file. say

C1 = A1+B1+data file c1 Data file is another file in other location.

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)

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:

=ISUM('201206:201305'!M6)

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.

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 HTML table with a column with numbers like

3.6

2.5

1.8

....

and so on...

When I'm trying to open this table in Excel (.csv or if I cut n paste from HTML) Excel keeps converting it to date format.

03.jun

02.may

01.aug

This wouldn't be a problem if I could only go to Format -> Cell and choose Standard or something.

The problem is it ends up like this then:

39236

39204

39295

WTF? :D

I want this!

3.6

2.5

1.8

....

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.

I am using decimal and hexadecimal numbers. On a worksheet I can use all of the normal functions for this problem (Hex2Dec etc). I have loaded the Analysis toolpack, and also have an add-in loaded (but do not know how or when) that is called Analysis ToolPack VBA. In VBA I can use the fnction Hex to convert from decimal to hex, but there does not seem to be a reverseof this function. Am I missing something obvious or is this a 'hole' in the available functions? Is there a reference I ned to add in the VBE? if I try to use the worksheet function in VBA then I get a Value# error.

I have five columns on an Excel Spreadsheet with questions in each of the columns.

Below each question is a number value. In the rows below these number values the users will be answering the questions with Y or N. When the spreadsheet is complete I would like to replace the Y's with the number value shown under the question and replace the N's with a number value of zero (0).

Is there any easy way to convert these?

The problem is When he feeds number 2 in to a cell it automatically converts in to 0.02. I tried using "Decrease decimal" and "format cells" option and even through uninstalling office and reinstalling a different version but the problem still continues.

I have numbers from -50 to 50 going down column C. In column D, I want to enter a formula which will convert each number to a TRUE or FALSE. How do I do that?

I believe 1 = TRUE and everything else = FALSE, but I would like to know how to get that with a formula.

Any easy function to convert numbers into words?

I a looking for an easy function to transform numbers into words as shown :

Value------Output :

12624-----Rs Twelve thousand six hundred and twenty four only

12624.24--Rs Twelve thousand six hundred and twenty four and twenty four paise.

Hopefully the currency should be changeable ( dynamic) i.e Rupees to Dollars..

In India , we also use lacs and crores , so something in those lines if possible...

How do I start a series of conversions to get an adjacent new cell that would read 135.7?

I want to convert numbers that were entered into a spreadsheet with commas in them. Since they were entered with commas of course excel reads them as text.

How can I convert them to numbers so I can use formulas.
