Determine A Cell's Format And Type

Nov 9, 2008

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?

Does anyone have any clue of a VBA function that gets a cell and Changes the type of itīs contense?

I have been using the Cstr function as in the next example but I dont get the result I want

hojaRES.Cells(i, 6) = CStr(hojaRES.Cells(i, 6))
If IsNumeric(hojaRES.Cells(i, 6)) Then
MsgBox "nothin changes :("
Exit For
End If
hojaRES.Cells(i, 6) = "0" & "34" & hojaRES.Cells(i, 6)

My problem is that i want to add 034 prefix to a telephone number, and as it treats the data as numeric; number 0 (before34) is deprecated

Format Cell To Show % As The Number Type-in

May 1, 2014

(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.

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.

Type A Number In A Blank Cell With The General Format

Aug 10, 2009

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?

Determine Type Of Data Of Right Click Parameter

Aug 21, 2013

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.

Determine Data Type Of Array Elements. Numeric Strings

Apr 7, 2008

I have an array of variants..

lvarArrSource = Array(12, "=F", 2, 3, 4, 5, 11, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, "123", "F", "F", "F", "F", 11, "F", "NR", "F")

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.

VBA: Format Amts Into Text $ 9.99 Type Format

Feb 13, 2008

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.

Format Date: Type Library Is Missing

Nov 23, 2006

I have a problem with the format( Date) function.

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()

varWeekW = Format(Date, "YYWW") ' Here it fails

Type Mismatch Error Message Comparing Value To Cell Error "Type Mismatch"

Nov 4, 2006

I'm trying to write a Macro that, in the active sheet (which contains plenty of data), deletes rows according to several criteria, for example:

- if cell(i, ar1(j)) = ERROR, delete row i and shift 1 up
(ar1 is an array of column numbers)

- if cell(i, ar3(j)) = 0, delete row i and shift 1 up
(ar3 is another array of column numbers)


The problem is that, when I run it, I get a "Type Mismatch" error message, and I don't understand why. Here is the

Sub Delete_invalid_rows()
Dim i%, j%
Dim Nr%, valid As Boolean, BYPdata As Boolean
Dim ar1, ar2, ar3, ar4 As Variant
Nr = 1379
ar1 = Array(11, 14, 19, 20, 22, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 64, 65, 66, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 104, 106, 107, 109, 112, 116, 126, 127, 128, 129, 131, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 140, 142, 143, 145)..............

Determine If Cell Contains Any Text In VBA

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

Determine Cell Content By Other Cell Contents

Aug 14, 2007

I am trying to write an "IF" scenerio.

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.

So if A1 is 41 then B1 must be positive (debit).

If A4 is 42 then B4 must be negative (credit).

Determine If Cell Has Specific Words?

Jun 18, 2008

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.
