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:

_1 000
_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.

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.

Format TextBox With Thousands Separators

Nov 5, 2006

We have created a userform with several textbox for numbers. We'd like to show them with a format similar to "###,##0.00" and allow the users to enter numbers without commas, but always show the textbox formated. Is there any special way to manage this format? As the textbox is a "text" value, how can we manage the input and the numbers? Should we always replace the "," withi a nullstring? Example:

Private Sub tbCakPrice_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
tbCakPrice.Text = Format(Val(tbCakPrice.Value), "######0.00")
tbPxCakCnFCgl.Value = Format(Val(tbCakPrice.Value) + Val(tbFleteRealCgl.Value), "########0.00")
End Sub.......................

Format Date In Cell To Custom Format?

Feb 21, 2014

I have a column in excel which gets populated in the format "2/1/1980" when copied from a different source. I want a macro to run on this column and convert this in the below format. Required format: '02-01-80 (note the ' symbol before 02 which will keep it as text)

Existing ----> Required
2/1/1980 --> '02-01-80
2/1/1970 --> '02-01-70
2/1/1983 --> '02-01-83

I need this macro to run on two columns and replace them with the required format. I can do a find and replace either in the sheet or through hard coding the VBA, but as the date format keeps growing, I would need to do this via code and hence requesting the same.

Creating A Custom Format For One Cell?

Apr 14, 2013

I want to create a custom format for a cell for entering in "cup measurements". I want to be able to type in 5, 1/4, 1/16, etc. and have the word "cups" appear after the number in that cell. I formatted the cell to say the word cups after typing in the numbers in my cell using the code "cups".

ex: 0 "cups" works fine for whole number

so then if i change it to 0/0 "cups" is works great for only 1/8 but not 1/16 or whole numbers. Then I looked at other custom codes that already existed in my formatts so I attempted to try this code which I just kinda came up with

_(0/00);_(0);_(0/0); "cups"

well it isn't doing what I want and If I use the 0/00 "cups code and I type in 4 cups the cell then says 4/01 cups.

What does my code need to be for me to show whole numbers and and size fraction without having it look weird?

Convert Cell Format From Custom H:mm To Minutes

Data is result of microstrategy query so result is

Custom Cell Format - Number Ending With Text String

Jun 13, 2013

How to modify a custom cell format to make data entry easier.

My goal is to have the output look like this: 'A12B-C20D: SET 10: Text string here'

Inputs needed are:

1-3 digit number between A & B
1-3 digit number between C & D
1-2 digit number after SET
Text string of variable length

Where I am stuck. So far I can get "A12B-C20D: SET 10:" to show up properly when 122010 is input. The custom format I am using looks like this: "A"##"B-C"##"D: SET "##": "

When I try to incorporate the "@" symbol the first part of the formatting goes away and the output shows up as "122010 Text string here".

I have tried:
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##":";;-;_@
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##": ";;@
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##":";_@
"A"###"B-C"###"D: SET "##": ";;;@

Excel 2010 :: Cell Selection - Set Comma To Appear For All Thousands

Apr 12, 2014

Question 1: how i can automatically add a cell into a formula by just clicking the cell to be added? in other words, say i typed an "=" sign in a cell and want to add a number of cells just by clicking the mouse without having to type the "+" sign after selecting each cell. the formula will just appear as > =A1+B1+C1 by default with each click of the mouse. Is there a default setting that can be set so the plus sign will appear with each click?

Question 2: how can i set a comma to appear for all thousands, (i.e. 1,000) without having to format each cell individually to show commas?? in other words that any spreadsheet i open will always insert comas for numbers larger by a thousand?

Leading Zero(s) / Custom Format? ()

Aug 23, 2007

I'm having trouble with the leading zeros of my ISBN#s; excel keeps chopping them off. I found a topic that discussed this issue, but it won't work for me.

I can't format them as text because I'm getting them as an isbn with dashes (ie:978-05689-256-7) and when I remove the dashes (even if its formatted as text) excel changes the number to 9780568.9E+12 (or something like that)

I think the solution would be to create a custom format (ie. 0000000000) to preserve the zeros, but I'm having 2 problems:

1. Since the ISBN#'s have 2 different formats (ISBN-10 & ISBN-13) I need to somehow check if the first 3 numbers are 978 then based on that it should be formatted either as ISBN-10 (0000000000) or ISBN-13 (0000000000000)

2. In the post that I linked to above it said that I won't be able to do a vlookup if its custom formatted. Is there any way around this?
