Dermine Value Of Cell Number Preceeded With Text Character

Apr 1, 2008

I've tried and tried and I con not get it right. In A1 I have a validation, it onlu allows to enter a 6-digit number between 100000-899999 or the same numbers with the letter I in front, that is I100000-I899999. Now I need a macro to check that cell F2 is not empty if the value in Cell A1 is above 299999. And this should also apply if there is an I in front. The function for the validation is:


The code I have is:

If Range("A" & i).Value > "299999" Then
If Range("F" & i).Value = "" Then
MsgBox "Indicator missing on row " & i
Application.Goto .Range("F" & i)
Exit Sub
End If
End If

It works wor the nubers without the I but it demands a vlaue in F on all I numbers and I only want it for >I299999.

Counting A Number In A Cell When Sumproduct

Apr 4, 2007

I have a spreadsheet with 3 coloumns. In A I enter Address, B Date, C Ward/District Area (this is a data validation list). At present I use; = SUMPRODUCT((HFRA!B4:B2000>=Summary!B1)*(HFRA!B4:B2000<=Summary!B2)). Summary B1 and B2 are dates to search between e.g 1/01/07 and 31/01/07. The above formula only counts the date enteries between B1 and B2.

I would like to change this so that it still checks that the date still falls between B1 and B2 but is adds together the numbers entered in coloum A. So coloumn A would become number of completed actions not an address.

Number Format To Display 20 Character Long Number?

Jul 9, 2014

I received a request from a coworker regarding custom formatting some numbers in his spreadsheet. Those numbers are serial numbers of 20 characters long. Sometimes in my files I use this custom number formatting ###0 and its enough for the data I handle. But when I tried to use it in his spreadsheet, the following shows:


The cell must look like this: 08456891070060510302

The reason to have it like this is due to a Delivery Program requirement to deliver Set-top Units for repair. The Delivery Program do not recognize other format than the above. My coworker takes the data from a spreadsheet, and the spreadsheet needs a custom number format to display the correct number.

find a custom number format to be able to display as my coworker need it??

Small Problem Activating Specific Cell Via VBA

Jan 2, 2007

Upon workbook open I have specified that I need a specific sheet & cell selected - so that the user can start typing as soon as the sheet is activated.

The cell is highlighted but I can not type into it unless I manually re-select it with the mouse or keyboard. Below is what i have attempted as well as a few other experiments. I even tried using the same code on sheets("ENTRY") using Private Sub Worksheet_Activate() - which works great as long as the workbook is already open but again not when freshly opening workbook -

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
If Range("E2") "" Then
'ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "test"
End If
End Sub

Determine If Last Character Is Number Or Not A Number

Oct 23, 2008

I'm trying to determine if the last character of a cell is a number or not a number. So in a cell I may have a string like:




If the last character is not a number I want the letter returned. So I thought I could use a formula like: =IF(NOT(ISNUMBER(RIGHT(D88,1))), RIGHT(D88,1),""). However for the string ZXC123 it still returns '3' so anyone have any ideas how I can do this?

Counting The Number Of Times A Multi Digit Number Appears

Nov 22, 2007

I've tried everything I know (which isnt that much to be honest. lol). Ive tried the frequency formula but that doesn't work the way I want it - I think its probably the wrong formula to use. I've also tried a pivot table but they always vex me. If a pivot table IS the way to go, could someone talk me through it step by step? (*the wizard is just as confusing as doing it yourself I find) ....

Counting The Number Of Occurrences Before The Current Week Number?

Jul 10, 2014

I have a spreadsheet for tracking jobs. Most everything is based off of week # rather than date. I am trying to get the stats page of the workbook to tally the total number of late jobs per week.The current week is taken care of because there is a function that automatically displays on time yes or no and I just set it to count the yeses or nos.The problem I am having is for past weeks.

I tried- =COUNTIF(Table2[On-time],"No"+(CountIF(Table2[Week # Hidden],"<Weeknum(Now())" but that doesn't work. I also tried isolating the < like this. =COUNTIF(Table2[On-time],"No"+(CountIF(Table2[Week # Hidden],"<"Weeknum(Now()) and that did not work either.

------ UPDATE

In response to using CountIFS I have also tried-

=COUNTIFS(Table2[On-time],"NO",Table2[Due Week '# Hidden],"<Weeknum(Now())") this just returns a zero value even when I have a late job listed three weeks ago.

Test To See If A Character Is A Number

Feb 6, 2009

I have a number of entries in column A.
The format is:

A1 B680192 Middle School
A2 Office Building Project

and so on;

I want to test if char.s 2 through 7 are numbers.

I can seperate one char at a time and use CODE function to check if the result is between 48 and 57.

I know how to split all six char.s at a time e.g. 680192, but I don't know how to test to see if it is a number?

ISNUMBER function doesn't work.

If I can do it with excel function, it would be better. If VBA has to be used, so be it.

Character To Number Conversion

Aug 15, 2006

I have a spreadsheet which I automatically generate using VBA. One of the columns lists account numbers. After the macro is complete, the account numbers are non-numeric and left justified. However if I select one of the account numbers by clicking on its cell, and then edit the account number in the formula window, it changes the cells property to numeric and right-justifies the cell.

Is Nth Character Text Or Number

Aug 16, 2007

Cell B23:687968307=ISTEXT(MID(RIGHT(B23,3),1,1))TRUE
Cell B24:C8796B07=ISTEXT(MID(RIGHT(B24,3),1,1))TRUE

I'm trying to test whether the third last character (3 and B) is a text or not.

As you can see, the reslts are both TRUE, but I'm expecting to see that the first one should be FALSE, as '3' is a number right?

Likewise, if I replace the formula with ISNUMBER instead of ISTEXT, the results are both FALSE, but shouldn't the first one be TRUE, again, because the '3' is a number?

Have I missed something in the formula, or is there a better way of expressing this formula?

Return Number Before Alpha Character

Feb 12, 2008

I have an Excel file that quiries Google for driving distance (someone helped me with this.) It returns the correct miles but has some 'extra' characters. Example:
31.1&nb or 886&nbs

So the answer always has &nbs after the mileage. I tried the following function which works when there is a decimal but fails when there is not. =REPLACE(MID(E2,1,SEARCH("&",E2,1)-1),SEARCH(".",E2,1),1,","). Can this be done with a function or must it be VB script? Which is fine if it is.

Using 'left' Function To Take Out Number Upto A Certain Character

Pretty sure this has been asked but have searched the forum to no avail, but I need to extract the numbers from a value which has a letter on the end.

eg. 1000x I need to get out the 1000
or 2p I need the 2

I have sooooo many values ranging in numbers of digits, so just basic left(A1,2) won't work, I'm sure I've seen a search or find function but don't know how to use them!

Function That Inputs A Certain Number Of A Specific Character

Mar 23, 2009

I need to make a list of Part Numbers in quotation marks. If a number of digits of a P/N is less than 13 a number of space characters has to be added to make the string 13 characters long.

We have example P/N:

should become:
"1234567890123(no extra space characters should be filled-13chars)"
"12345678(5 extra space characters here)"
"123456(7 extra space characters)"

Is there a function that inputs a cerain number of a specific character ("space" in this example)?
