(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.
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 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 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.
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....
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.
