Custom Number Format (hundred-thousands, Millions)

May 22, 2009

I have a giant sheet that culminates in a graph. It is for various regions. When used in a country with in-control currency, you end up with a nice healthy number that looks good on the graph. When our Zimbabwe office uses it with their crazy inflation and high prices, we get a crazy number that goes into scientific notation...

Anyway, my question:

Given a number like 4,200,000 or 6,500 or 345,123, I want to be able to show as few trailing numbers as possible, and give a nice K or B or D or however you abbreviate Quadrillion (kM? for Zimbabwe) after it.

And, if possible, I'd like to do it with number formats, but I am flexible so long as it doesn't use VBA.

The lookup table would be:

Sheet1 AB1<1,000As is21,000K31,000,000Mil.41,000,000,000Bil.5>1,000,000,000,000Tril. Excel tables to the web >> Excel Jeanie HTML 4

All numbers have 2 significant digits, and I want to keep 2, so if it ends up as 4,200,000, I want the answer to read 4.2 Mil, etc.

I tried doing this with a lookup, and couldn't handle it.

Custom Cell Format In Which Space Follows Thousands Place

Feb 10, 2010

I am trying to write a custom cell format that would allow me to replace the comma with a space after the thousand's place. Therefore, 1 million would look like: 1 000 000 instead of 1,000,000. I do NOT want to change my regional settings to accomplish this.

When I write ### ### ### it accomplishes this, however, there is one small glitch. When you apply an "underline" you get the following result:

_1
_10
_100
_1 000
_10 000
_100 000
1 000 000
10 000 000
100 000 000

The underline does not lineup evenly with the "ones" digit until we reach 1 million. I want to write a universal format in which the underline lines up evenly regardless of the number.

Formula For Several Hundred People With Several Hundred Choices

Jun 25, 2008

I'm trying to write a formula for the following simple situation. Eventually I will need to use this formula for several hundred people with several hundred choices.

Like I said, this is a simplified example that I will eventually need to expand out to hundreds of people. Lets say I have 5 people, we will call them #1, #2, etc to #5 and I have 5 cars, red, blue, black etc. Person #1 gets his first choice, person number 2 gets second choice etc. But if person #2's first choice is the same as person #1's, obviously he can't have that choice and must go to his second choice. Some people may not have a preference and won't get assigned any color.

Conditional Custom Number Format

Mar 6, 2009

I am trying to create a number format for formatting resistor value in their most commonly displayed form. For example 1,200 ohms would be displayed as 1.2k and 5,000,000 ohms would be displayed as 5M, and finally 5 ohms would be displayed as 5. I have been able to create a format that formats any 2 contiguous formats but not all three.

for example: [>999999]###.0,,;[<1000000]###.0,k;
or: [>999]###.0,k;[<1000]###

both work.(other similar criteria work as well) But if I try to put 3 conditions describing the desired formatting I get and error (containing no useful info) as I try to close the formatting dialog. Is there a limit to the number of conditions that can be used. Or something else I'm overlooking.

Custom Number Format - Em Dash For Zero

Dec 19, 2011

I know this works because I have seen it in a workbook at a client's office.

I need a custon number format to substiture an "em" dash for zero. An em dash is a hyphen with the width a the letter m. There is also the so called en dash tht is the width the the letter n. A search of the internet shows that to create an em dash in a cell that contains a 0 ("zero"), hold down the alt key and type 0151 on the numeric keypad. Typing 0150 insert a en dash.

I want to be able to set this up as a custom number format in the custom number dialog.

Hide Number One With Custom Format?

Feb 28, 2012

Instead of using conditional format, I would like to use a custom format to hide the number 1. Is this possible?

Basically only three things can be in this cell =IF(D8"",IF(D8="CIV",1.077,1),"")

I need to mask the 1, otherwise show the 1.077. The reason I am not using conditional formatting is because there is a condition on the cell already which applies a pattern style and a font will not match up to the pattern.

Custom Number Format - Percentage

Jul 8, 2014

I am trying to create a custom number format.

Here is what I have come up with: 0.00%;[Red]-0.00%

The problem is, it has no "," it would display as 23555555.6% or -2355555.6%

I need it to display as: 23,555,555.6% or -23,555,555.6%

How would this be written?

Additionally, I have occasion to "abbreviate" in the following format:

23.55MM% or 1.5M% or -23.55MM% or -1.5M%

For currency, I have it written in this manner:

Currency: [>=1000000] $#,##0.0,," MM";[>0] $#,##0.0," M";[Red]($#,###," M")

I just freeze when trying to convert to percentage.

Scale A Number Using Format Cells Custom?

Aug 6, 2009

I have a number in a cell of 1025132.36. I need to scale it down to this number with this formatting: 1,025.13 (Two decimal places with comma separaters)

Basically it is dividing it by 1000 or scaling it by 3 (move the decimal place to the left three places). I cannot use /1000 in the cell and I cannot reference it to/from another cell. I must use something under Format/Cell. I was trying to create a custom format.

I saw in another forum thread to use #.###. This does the scaling but then I cant make the number viewed with only two decimal places. Also when I tried to add comma separators for thousands it put a comma right before the decimal.

Can Custom Number Format Be Applied In A Macro

Jun 4, 2013

We have a macro that formats a report from our accounting program quite extensively (mostly moving text around). The last step is to select the entire worksheet and set the cell format to a custom setting #,##0.00_);(#,##0.00). We haven't been able to include this in the macro - we end up manually doing this step after the macro has completed. Is there any way to set this custom format as part of the macro?

Custom Number Format For Displaying MAC Addresses

Oct 18, 2005

I'm trying to create an Excel sheet to display MAC addresses in the following format -

00:00:00:00:00:00

However. the characters can be either letters or numbers. I've modified the "hh:mm:ss" template to accomodate the format I need, but it will not recognize letters for the obvious reason. Is there a wildcard character that I could use in this format or has anyone created a format that would meet my needs? If I can pull this off, it could mean a promotion.

Alter The Number Of Decimals In A Custom Format

Oct 24, 2008

is there any way by which you can alter the number of decimals in a custom format using just custom format process (ie no VBA).

For ex:

12 should appear as 12
12.1 should appear as 12.1
12.26 should appear as 12.3

Note 12 should NOT appear as 12.0

So point being adding the "m" is an irrelevance at this time - the key is to vary the decimal points essentially based on MOD(value,1) = 0

If you can (I'm really thinking you can't) let's extend it such that 12.1 should appear as 12.1 but 12.26 as 12.26

I know you can use [value>x] type rules but I'm guessing you can't use formulae in those rules ?

Custom Number Format With Wrap & Text

Sep 14, 2007

I have been playing with custom formats recently and I'm wondering if there is anyway to make them wrap?

specifically I have several results that I have been formatting to show what they are related to

397235 visitors 392648 visitors 365487 visitors

I want these to display as visitors, but still be numbers so that they can be summed etc.
The problem is that I need the text to wrap so that visitors is on the second line in the cell. unfortunatley all i get is a ########## error to show the cell is not wide enough even with wrap text turned on.

Save/Store Custom Number Format

May 7, 2008

From what I find in Excel and from what the Microsoft website instructs, there isn't an obvious way to save a custom number format without having to create a template to store it.

Has a way been discovered to convince Excel to save a new number format and include it in the drop down selection for any workbook?

Custom Number Format :: To Contain (and Show) Both An Interger And Text

Nov 29, 2009

I would like to format a row of cells. I want each cell in the row to contain (and show) both an interger and text. The interger will range in value from one to ~10,000. The text will always be two characters long...but these characters will change from cell to cell.

Elsewhere in the spreadsheet I will have a cell (w/ a formula) that counts the values of the intergers in the row, but ignores the text in each cell.

a procedure for format ing the cells in the row?
