How do I determine a cell's type (e.g., numeric or string or formula) and if numeric, the format (e.g., currency, general, scientific) including the number of decimal places.

Is there a function that returns the object's properties? Must I use isnumeric, isformula, and so on or is there one function that returns this information?

(3) examples when I type a number to a cell: If I type a number "1", I want that cell to show 1.000% but not 100.000%. If I type a number ".2", I want that cell to show 0.200% but not 20.000%. If I type a number "25.5", I want that cell to show 0.255% but not 2550.000%.

I play around with the below custom format cells but they do not work. _0.01*#.000% _0.01*#,.000% 0.01*#,.000%

I could use two cells one for number, other cell has a % mark. But I rather to format a single cell if it is possible.

My excel recently the General number format so that when the general number fomat is used and I type a number in a blank cell with the general format, the number is always divided by 10.

E.g., I enter "102", the number is automatically improperly converted to 1.02. However, if I enter "=102", the number is properly entered as 102.

How can I reset the General format to the original setting without this divide by 100 problem?

I need to make a fork in my code based on the type of data received from an input box launched from a right click and passed via the actioncontrol parameter.

The input box box is a range selector.

Dim seriesIdArray As Variant seriesIdArray = Range(CommandBars.ActionControl.Parameter)

Generally, the user will have selected multiple cells as their range and I loop through using:

For j = 0 to ubound(seriesIdArray, 2)

However, if they only select one cell, I am getting back the value of that string in seriedIdArray, and that gives me a type mismatch error. I'll need to handle this a little differently, and I know how to do that part, I just don't know when I need to do this.

How can I tell whether they have selected one cell or multiple cells based on the value of the actioncontrol parameter?

I considered trapping the error type (13) and branching based on that, but then I end up with spaghetti code and I'm trying to avoid that.

I think I may need to create another more specific variable to take the action control parameter, test it, and then decide whether I should use an array or a range, but that's just a suspicion.

which i am using to map columns between spreadsheets. The basic numeric entries refer to columns to copy. But I want to make the routine smarter with the strings.

If array(x) = 12 (For example) Then Do something End If If left(array(x),1) = "=" Then Do something Else End If If array(x) Is String literal (e.g "xyz" Or "123") Then Do a third thing End If

i cant find a typeof or isstring kind of function. Isnumeric works ok for some values but quoted numbers (eg "123") return true (which isnt what i want). I have tried the left(string,1) = """ but excel seems to hide the quotes.

I've attached part of the file I'm working with, and can't figure out how to align the text to the top in the merged cells titled description. How do I format the cell so that if there isn't two lines of type in the description it remains aligned with the quantity and price

Need to create a set of aligned text amts from various cells...Tried Format but unable to get right combination...I've looked at many threads and most seem related to getting amt from text instead of reverse.

Cell may contain nothing or a monetary amt, negative or positive. Output needs to be in format of "$9,999.99-" or similar...with leading zeros suppressed but a min of "$ 0.00" showing, so that above/below amts with be decimal point aligned in a fixed font situation.

I've almost gotten my routine finsihed but this is last remaining obstacle.

I have 2 dates format like 200903021124 and 200903030254. How do I use excel or excel VBA to calculate what is the time that elapses between this 2 date format?

On the computer I've developed the application everything works but when running the application on another computer I get a compilation error telling that the project or library doesn't exist

This is quite urgent so I really appreciate a quick solution.

On the computer that fails it says that Type Library is missing when looking at accessible references. Can this be something explaining the problem ?

Private Sub Workbook_OpenTest() Dim varWeekW As String

1. Is there a VBA Function equivalent to the FIND() function, If so What is it? 2. Let's say Im Putting a Date into a inputbox, what is the type # for date (Type:=?)??

I have a Userform that allows the user to input a country from a combobox which after clicking a button writes that data into Cell AH11 in the excel spreadsheet, what I need is for Cell AI11 to read what has been entered into Cell AH11, look up whether or not that country is on a list I have and enter a yes or a no if it is or it isn't on that list.

I want to write a function that goes out and reads a cell, waits a few seconds, then reads the cell again, since it is constantly changing. Then report back the difference between the two readings of the same cell. The following code does not work since t0 and t1 always come back the same value.

Code: Function ReadTime(t) t0 = t DoEvents Application.wait Now() + TimeValue("00:00:15") t1 = t ReadTime = t1 - t0 End Function

I am working on a spreadsheet where individuals must enter a value between 1 - 4 or n/a. I would like to include a formula for each question where if they enter a value between 1-4, this scores 1 and if they enter n/a this scores 0. Does anyone know a simple formula I could use, I have tried IF formulas but keep getting muddled.

I am trying to figure out how to not allow a word to be type into a cell. I am relatively new to excel and I am working on a spreadsheet where I do not want the word TOMORROW to be allowed in a cell.

I want a macro to select the cell with i type. Like i type in cust-0001 and it selects the cell which has cust-0001. I then want it to select the cell in column C that is in the same row with that value. E.g. Find cell in column A with value cust-0001 and then select the cell in column B in the same row.

Can anyone help me in finding how to write the command in VBA to determine what Cell was selected in a worksheet? The objective is to know what Cell has been selected by double click event to pop up a userform with a calendar from which the user can select the date. I am looking at making it dynamic so I do not select a particular range.

I have tried searching for a way for VBA to recognise in VBA if a cell contains any text, but most of my searches respond to specific cases for specific characters in a string

Basically, I'm just looking for the correct way to word a string of code that if it detects any text in column B (col 2 ) then it should not do anything, else it should cut the value in col 2 and paste it in col 8

I'm trying to create a VBA module that will update data. However, I need it to skip any updates to data that has been set by the user. For simplicity, the user changes will be bold. I've found the info on the site for a function for counting cells in a range that are bold. But really just need to know how to get format of the cell.

Column A contains a giant list of pathogens, with each often appearing in several ways (with/without species name, various misspellings, etc.) Column B contains truncated versions of maybe 20 or so pathogens that I'm interested in. What I want in column C is for an "X" or something to appear every time the code finds a pathogen of interest (that is, from column B) in the corresponding row of column A. For example:.............

I have the above table. I would like to determine which is the item that has Maximum value on a particular date. example on 2/11/2007, the maximum value is 7, so the result should be item a. How can I achieve this by using a formula.

I want to be able to control what is put in a cell based what is placed in another cell.

For example.

I want to be able to only enter a credit/debit in B1 based by what I type in A1.

If any cell in column A is any of these numbers (41,47,48,49,50,51,52,60,61,65,68,63,67,69) then any number entered in a cell in column B can only be a positive number. If any cell in column A is any of these numbers (40,42,43,44,45,46,52,53,55,56,57,64,62,66) then any number entered in a cell in column B must be a negative number.

The goal is to type a number in a cell (G4) on a worksheet, and then look it up in different work sheets (JANUARY THROUGH MARCH) in a different workbook,(NEW DAILY SUMMARY.xls) Once found, import the value of the cell next to were the number was found....

How can I identify a cell type at excel sheet (w/ VBA command) ? I find this command (from Access forum): http://www.thescripts.com/forum/thread601180.html but its working only with Access...

Basically, I want a formula that searches for more than one word anywhere within a cell, and if the cell contains any of those words somewhere in it then I want to display a value, but if the words aren't there, then stay blank.

For example, my cell could say: "Magenta, Rose, Lime, Lavendar". I want to search this cell for any of the these words: "Lime", "Forest" or "Teal". If any of these appear, I then want the cell with this formula to say "Green".

I know the formula to search for only one word /phrase in a cell, I use: =(IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("yellow",A1)),"colour","-")), (i.e. if the word "yellow" appears anywhere in cell A1, then this cell will show the word "colour", if not then a "-".) I tried adding an 'OR' function in this to search multiple words but it didn't seem to work.

I need to take a specific action when a cell has an actual formula in it versus when it just has a "value". Is there a procedure or command which will allow me to identify if a certain cell has a "formula" (like =sum(a1: a5) ) or just a value.

I have a large collection of datasets, sorted/grouped by rows. I need to perform some calculations against these SETS (Ave, Low, Median, etc.).

The number of member in each SET is variable (1 to NN), the number of SET Members is included in the data. Example:

Code: 3 Data Sets: Row Set Members Price Ave 1 A 4 $1.00 2 A 4 $1.25 3 A 4 $1.50 4 A 4 $1.75 5 B 1 $4.00 6 C 3 $10.45 7 C 3 $14.50 8 C 3 $17.75

how to compute the AVE value for each SET above?

I am thinking if I can determine the FIRST Row number for each set, add the MemberQty as an ~offset to determine the LAST Row, then use an Indirect reference to compute the ave, something like:

=AVERAGE(INDIRECT("D"&A1&":D"&A1+C1)) The SET's Ave value should be added to EACH row in each SET.

I am struggling trying to point a formula like this to the First Row of the NEXT set.

In VBA code, what's the simplest way to verify whether a cell is a member of a pivot table or not? I have a complicated way of doing this by checking if creating a formula in another cell with a reference to the cell in question generates the GETPIVOTDATA function; however, it seems like there should be a much simpler way.

I've searched the forumn but have found no resolution to my dilema. I'm trying to accomplish the following:

I would like to apply an Alternate number to a job that meets a certain criteria. The criteria is based on a Marker, which should be automatically determined based on the count of total jobs that are Estate or Custom. The Alternate number needs to be applied to certain % of the Jobs. What I've done is to get the count of jobs Estate or Custom then based on the count I have applied the Alternate % to determine the actual number of jobs that should have the marker applied. Here is where I need the help. The next step would be be to apply the marker to the number of jobs. I'm not sure how I can accomplish this task. Attached is an excel spreadsheet with an example of what I'm trying to achieve as well as what the end result should look like.

It's been awhile since I've done this...and I tried searching for the solution but to no avail.

I'm trying to edit the contents of a series of numbers by using the Rounding function. When I execute my macro on the next cell, it uses the value of the original cell when the macro was created. Here's a copy of my macro:

Sub RoundTest() ' ' RoundTest Macro ' Macro recorded 7/26/2007 by Aramark Uniform Services ' ' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+l ' ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=ROUND(2103.86,0)" ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Range("A1").Select End Sub

I have a spreadsheet where I need to check if one cell value is greater than 6 other cell values in the row, then have it enter 1 in another cell if so.

For example: C1=5 C2=2 C3=3 C4=2 C5=7 C6=0 C7=4

The largest value is in cell C5, so I would like C6 to show that it is by entering a 1 in there.

1. In column A i have a list from 1-12 (months in a year) 2. In column B i have the formula that references the corresponding cell in column A in the same row i.e. B1 "=(A1={1;3;5;7;8;10;12})"

Problem: This formula works only when the value in column A equals "1"...i need it to work when it equals any of the identified numbers in the set.

I am trying to make a spreadsheet for bank reconiliation. I found this formula, =if( countif($B1:$B$1000,D1),D1)=0,D1,"") but there are two open parathese and three close. What needs to be corrected?

I have a workbook that includes a drop down list with three options. One of the options is "TA". The default font type for these cells is "Wingdings" but when "TA" is chosen I want the Font Type to change to "Arial".
