Copy Text, With Quotes, Without Quotes

Nov 21, 2006

I'm trying to set up a macro to be assigned to a button to copy the text in a cell into an application which uses similar text capabilities to Notepad.

The simple macro of:

Range("D5").Select
Selection.Copy

... results in the text of the cell being copied to the clipboard with quotation marks before and after the text. I can manually enter the cell, select the text, the copy it... but this process can not be recorded in a macro - I can edit the cell and copy the text but when leaving the cell it gives the error "unable to record".

Is there any way I can copy the text to the clipboard without getting these quotes?

Import Large Text File Of Numbers Without Excel Splitting Numbers?

Jul 19, 2014

I have a text file with rows and columns of numbers ranging from 1-4 digits that I'd like to import/copy into Excel with each number being in its own cell. But whenever I copy/try to import, Excel splits all of the 3-4 digit numbers up into single digit numbers. The text file has 10,000+ columns (each number occupies two columns so I have half of that amount in numbers) and 300+ lines.

Is the file simply too large for Excel to handle or is there a way I can do this?

Converting Decimal Numbers To Text With Dot Numbers

May 27, 2006

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.

Converting Text To Numbers?

Jan 24, 2013

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 £1000 but this does not seem to work.

Converting Text To Numbers

Jul 25, 2006

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?

Converting Numbers To Text As Dollars / Cents?

We are compiling annual receipts - using Excel spreadsheet numbers to merge into a Word document, but we are losing the cents in the merged document. When we tried converting to text, the cents were lost as well. Example 450.00 becomes 450 - how do we keep the cents - 450.00?

Automatically Converting Numbers Stored As Text To Numers

Oct 28, 2008

I am using an ODBC database connection to input data into an excel file. When I input the data excel stores the numeric data as text and puts a ' in front of the number. There is an exclamation mark beside the cell which allows me to convert the data back to numeric format. I need excel to do this conversion for me automatically when new data is added to the file.

Converting Text To Numbers In Multiple Sheets While Leaving Missing Values Blank?

Jul 24, 2013

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.

Found Value In Quotes Not Matching Cell Value Without Quotes - VBA Excel

Feb 11, 2013

Attempting to match acct #s on source sheet with account numbers on Template but the numbers on the source are = to the cell value while the numbers on the template are equal to finding the source cell value in the template. Let me explain with code.

Set Source value:

Code:
Set FirstIO = zfir.Range("e8")
Set Template value:

Code:
Set CheckIO = Range("Accounts").Find(IO, LookIn:=xlValues)
When I get here:

Code:
If FirstIO = CheckIO.Value Then
I get a mismatch because
FirstIO = 3333333 and CheckIO = "3333333"

How do I make these 2 values Match?

Excel 2010 :: Formula Evaluation Shows Numbers In Quotes

Dec 21, 2011

I'm using Excel 2010.

A formula I am using is outputting "0" instead of the expected value. Upon evaluating the formula I realized that this was because some of the values - years, in this case - had quotes around them while others did not. Please see the image below for the screenshot of the evaluation.

These values - the years - are being evaluated in the following formula.

Code:
=SUM(
IF(inventory!$F$3:$R$3=$A3,
IF(inventory!$B$4:$B$56=$G$1,
IF(inventory!$D$4:$D$56=$G$2,
inventory!$F$4:$R$56))))
This formula references the following sheet (an excerpt from that sheet). You can also see the formulas found in the cells causing the problem.

*ABC5212/20/20102010Adjustments53*20112011543/17/20112011Carwen Printers559/9/20112011Adjustments569/9/20112011Copeland Printing
Spreadsheet FormulasCellFormulaB52=IF(A52="",C52,YEAR(A52))B53=IF(A53="",C53,YEAR(A53))
B54=IF(A54="",C54,YEAR(A54))B55=IF(A55="",C55,YEAR(A55))B56=IF(A56="",C56,YEAR(A56))

I suspect that the problem is being caused by the output of the formula in these cells. If I simply type in "2011" instead of using the formula in B52:B56, then the first formula in the code section above does not have a problem.

How I can reconcile this?

Triple Quotes In Text

Jan 30, 2009

I'm running the following to put quotes around data in a workbook:

Sub test()
For Each s In Range("A1:A" & Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row)
s.Value = """" & Format(s.Value, "00000000") & """"
Next
For Each s In Range("B1:B" & Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row)
s.Value = """" & Format(s.Value, "####") & """"
Next
End Sub

And exporting as a CSV file for loading into another program. The problem is everything looks OK in Excel, but when I open the file in Notepad to check the output, the quotes are all triple. How can I get only single quotes around the data?

Find Text String Value Between Quotes

Sep 2, 2007

Formulae Solution prefered if possible--

Is it possible to extract the two text strings between the quotes, placing them in Col. C & D respectively, e.g.
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, " ANTI ", " ANTI-HERO ")
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "SEC9", "SECTOR 9")
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "LNGBRDC", "LONGBOARD COMPLETE")

--Col. C---------------Col.D
Anti------------------Anti-Hero
SEC9--------------- SECTOR 9
LNGBRDC---------- LONGBOARD COMPLETE

There are three types of scenarios-
1) Values enclosed in quotes that begin and end w/ spaces:
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, " ANTI ", " ANTI-HERO ")

2) Values enclosed in quotes that does not contain a leading space or trailing space:
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "SEC9", "SECTOR 9")

3) Values enclosed in quotes that have a space between itself:
Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(c.Formula, "LNGBRDC", "LONGBOARD COMPLETE")

Macro: Concatenate Text, Variable & Double Quotes

Nov 23, 2006

I need to write a line of code which puts the following into a cell:

=+C4 & " - " & 1

The cell reference at the beginning will always be C4, however the "1" at the end will be variable named "GroupNo"

So my code will be something like:

Range("B46").Value = "=+$C$4 & " & "" - "" & "GroupNo"

This isn't working. I've tried every variation of what it should be but I keep getting errors like "type mismatch" or just the wrong thing being put in the cell.

Import Multiple Text Files & Copy Each Import

Jan 29, 2008

I'm attempting to import around 200 (and growing!) separate text files into Excel. I am using the formula below to import the text file and then using a separate macro to select the information I need, copy it into another spreadsheet, and then run the import macro again.

However, I have a problem in that my import macro gives me 'Run-time error '1004:

Application defined or user defined error''. At first this wasn't a problem as the information is pasted into the spreadsheet despite the error anyway. However, now that I am looping the macro it is obviously causing more problems as it prevents the loop. I would really appreciate it if anyone knows of a work-around or can spot an error in the coding to resolve this!

The code below shows is for the import macro only:

Sub ImportTextFile(FName As String, Sep As String)

Dim RowNdx As Long
Dim ColNdx As Integer
Dim TempVal As Variant
Dim WholeLine As String
Dim Pos As Integer
Dim NextPos As Integer
Dim SaveColNdx As Integer

Text File Import With Text To Columns Splitting Same Text Differently

Nov 21, 2007

I have a macro which imports data from a mainframe dump text file and performs 'Text to Columns' on the imported data so that formula in the spreadsheet can act on the data. The code works perfectly well when I use it, but if a different user logs on and performs exactly the same mainframe dump and import macro the Text to Columns action splits the raw data in a different way and the result is that the split renders the formulae useless.

I've experimented a little and for some reason it appears that the 'Field Info' parameters which are produced when the Text to Columns function is recorded in a macro differ between users even though the raw data is exactly the same.

FieldInfo:= _
Array(Array(0, 1), Array(18, 1), Array(35, 1), Array(56, 1), Array(70, 1), Array(88, 1), _
Array(102, 1))

Converting Numbers To Date

Jan 11, 2007

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
....

Converting Numbers To Letters

Jun 26, 2007

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.

Converting Numbers To Negative

Nov 25, 2009

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 dont 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.

Converting Hexadecimal Numbers In VBA

Nov 16, 2004

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.
