Converting Text To Numbers With Commas In Them

Oct 30, 2008

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.

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?

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.

Formula To Separate Numbers With Commas To Other Columns

Dec 21, 2013

I need the formula to separate the numbers with commas in a cell to other columns as shown in sample.

This data comes from internet and automatically updating certain intervals, so the text to columns option has no use.

Format Chart Labels For Numbers With Commas

Mar 19, 2008

I know from searching through the internet you can change the intervals by modifying the minimumScale, maximumScale and MajorUnit fields of TickLabels. What I want to do is change the period of the axis label to a comma. For example,

if it shows

10.00
5.00
0.00

I want it to show

10,00
5,00
0,00

Continue Number Series In Single Cells With Numbers Separated By Commas

Jun 10, 2008

I have the following syntax in B1: "1,2,3,5,6". and I need VBA to take the very last number out of that list, and increase by four in single steps. For example: before the code: "1,2,3,5,6" and then after it "1,2,3,5,6,7,8,9." The code must be flexible, though, because it will be running within another Macro, and it must work whether the last number in the list is 1 digit ("...4,5,8"), 2 digit ("...34,35,36") or 3 digit ("...111, 113, 114"). Those three examples would be changed into "...4,5,8, 9, 10, 11" "...34,35,36, 37, 38, 39" "...111, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117".

Expanding Out Lists Of Text With Commas?

Apr 5, 2013

So, I have a list of data like this:

Type
Variety
Country of Origin
Price

[Code]....

Obviously I can do this using text to columns and transpose but typically I'm dealing with much bigger sheets where being able to do this automatically is a big time saving.

The column with commas in it can vary in position so I'd like this to work on the cell/column that is selected.

Ideally I'd like it to work it's way down the sheet expanding out every comma separated list in the selected column in this fashion but even something that worked on the current cell would be handy.

I think roughly I need to split the cell into an array using the comma as a seperator, possibly scrub the spaces from the text, copy the row as many times as there are things in this array (using ubound?) and then transpose the array into an area starting at the selected row and going down as far as there are things in the array but a bit lost with actual implementation.

table.tableizer-table {
border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 12px;
}

[Code]....

Prevent Multiple Commas In Text File

Nov 30, 2007

I have a spreadsheet that is produced by a macro. This spreadsheet has a table of 30 rows and 24 columns pasted into it from another spreadsheet. The first 6 rows of vary between containing 1 and 6 columns of data. The next 17 rows always have 24 columns of data. The last row has 1 column of data. The macro saves this spreadsheet as a .csv file. The macro works great, but when I open the .csv file in notepad all the rows have 23 commas, even for the rows with only a few columns of data. Here is a shorten example of the file when opened in Notepad....

Is there anyway to have the macro not insert the commas in the first 6 rows for columns on the right side of the last column of data? I need the data to be formatted in the format shown below.

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.

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?
