I'd like to dial phone numbers directly from a specific column on a worksheet just by doubleclicking on them.
I found this code which I am trying to adapt to my use.
The hardware part is setup already (modem, phone line, etc.)
Private Sub Dial(Number)
Dim DialString As String
Dim FromModem As String
Dim dummy As Integer
' AT is the Hayes compatible ATTENTION command and is required to send commands to the modem.
' DT means "Dial Tone." The Dial command uses touch tones, as opposed to pulse (DP = Dial Pulse).
' Numbers is the phone number being dialed.
' A semicolon tells the modem to return to command mode after dialing (important).
' A carriage return, vbCr, is required when sending commands to the modem.
DialString = "ATDT" + Number + ";" + vbCr
I am getting an error message when I doubleclick that says :Runtime Error 424 , Object
Required and then I'm taken to the code line that is in Bold Yellow. Dealing with Comm
Ports is too much for me. I only know that my modem is in Com Port 4. If I'm told what to
I am building a contact database in excel. I am using a userform to search, by autofilter, through several thousand contacts by any one of 7 criteria(account name, postal code,, account number, etc.). The only criteria that I cannot get to work is the phone number.
The numbers are entered in a ten digit string and the cells are formatted as phone numbers. i.e: 8005551212 = (800) 555-1212. When I run the search by the 10 digit number, the autofilter hides all results.
I have an old customer list maintained by my company's previous owner in excel format that mostly stored numbers ###-#### format, but also some in ###-###-#### format.
My new list has always been maintained with numbers in (###) ###-#### format.
I have merged these two lists in a new excel file have begun the tedious process of cleaning up duplicates and bad data.
I have used conditional formatting to highlight duplicate numbers in the appropriate columns (L, M, N, O) in this case. However, it does't find matches in the other formats or perhaps the number with the old area code. I know the area code change could lead to false positives, but they should be minimal as this is a small business with mostly local customers. So what I'd like to find out is a formula for conditional formatting that will compare the last 8 characters in each cell (###-####) so as to eliminate issues of missing or different area codes. I would like it to check all of the columns for duplicate numbers not just within each column or within each row individually.
Also separate but related if possible to highlight a different color any cells with data not in any of these formats or if not in (###) ###-#### format if it's too much for all the formats.
I need to reformat phone numbers in Excel, and I am having trouble doing so. I do not have VBA experience, but I am somewhat familiar with functions in Excel. I need to go from 555-555-5555 to (555) 555-5555
I have the following text, in which I need separated into three columns.
Column A) Company Name Column B) Address Column C) Phone Number
I was thinking perhaps I could replace "-------" to just one "-" and use that delimiter to separate the phone number.
Then Use *** Company Name Here *** --> *Number Variable* and filter the rest..
But I don't see it being able to work.Here is the text I'm looking to format (Mind you there is about 8,000 Records. And, it's all formatted like below. (Company Name, phone number being on different lines and phone number being separated by dash's
I have our company telephone accounts and im trying to highlight any numbers that are not on our approved dialling list. What I would like to happen (ideally) would be for a formula to look at the cell next to it and compare it with the approved numbers list, if it doesn’t appear on the list then it would do something to let me know, like put a big red X in the cell (if it could make me a cup of Tea instead that would be better).
Is there a way to extract a phone number out of a string of text. The phone number will always be expressed the same way (eight digits seperated by a space half way through) - 9999 9999. But the text before and after the number is random. Is there a macro to do this on a large scale? The method needs to be applied to hundreds of these strings, each on a new line.
An example of the string of text with the phone number underlined:
I have a very long list of international phone numbers in a .csv format that I need to put a zero in front of each one. We are doing an international autodialer campaign for an upcoming event and need the zeros at the beginning to pay for the call. How do you get around Excel not allowing a zero at the front of a number and the .csv format not allowing you to save certain formats? I've been searching the archived posts for a hour now and can't find anything on this!
I am trying to format a cell (in Excel 2010) as a phone number. The problemis that the data comes over from our download as text. Is there an easier way then using the 'SUBSTITUTE' function to change format to a true phone number (so that we can mail merge into WORD)? Since it is extracted out as a text, using the 'phone number' format (under special) will not work. Using the 'SUBSTITUTE' formula to remove the parenthesis', the dash and the space work but is cumbersome.
Below is an example of the text format that is being extracted: (706) 378-7585
I have a series of dependent drop lists and a cell which asks for a phone number. I would like if the selection in the previous cell is North America, the format of (111) 111-1111 is chosen. if the user enters the improper format I would like them to be prompt with an error "Improper Format - <Proper Format>", clear contents, and re-select the cell otherwise if valid select the next cell. It would need to strip out the leading 1 incase an international code is entered and also special characters such as "(",")","-","+","_" as well as spaces.
The next problem is that it would have to change format to if another selection is chosen. The other two selections are Australia and Europe. Europe is more difficult of a format as the area codes vary in length. I will be dealing predominantly with Sweden whose area codes even vary. For Australia I would like it to be in the format 011 61 1 1111 1111 where 011 61 will be added even if the user does not enter it (or if not possible prompt with proper format).
The cell asking which continent is G35 and options are "","Australia", "Europe", "North America"
I have this data in cells A1-A7 (each line in the example below is a cell with the cells name to the left of the: and the value to the right of the The colors are simply to show the matching data----there are no colors in the excel sheet
A1:Nordica Valley A2:8888 bla oook nikk Rd $15,950,000 A3:Sumik/Arnov 120.443.8976/555.443.8976 A4:5+3. 13+ acre horse ranch in A5:private canyon. Pool, barn/ more. A6:Robinson 999.443.8976 A7:Cell7 is blank A8:Jit/Song 587.678.6788
I wish to extract the Phone#'s and Names to columns B&C.
The data for this example would be broken down as follows:
I work for a charity and we have a new call list, about 1.2 million phone numbers. We have a list of about 1,000 numbers that we are not supposed to call again. How can I scrub the do not call numbers against the master list to remove both numbers? The master list has names in a column, city in another column, numbers in a column and city in a column. The do not call numbers I have are just listed in 1 column.
PHONE formatting. Is there a way to create a macro to format the VALUE of the phone to be either (XXX) XXX-XXX or XXX-XXX-XXXX ? I obviously can get it to look like this, but the value is just XXXXXXXXXX.
I'm needing a macro that will convert a column of 10 digit phone numbers and break them out or convert them from a XXXXXXXXXX format to a XXX XXX XXXX format.
I want to be able to copy and paste a long column of 10 digit numbers then have the macro run down the column and cut or copy the area code (first 3 digits of the 10 digit string) - move it two columns to the left - paste it into that cell - return then cut the next 3 digits - move it one column to the left, and paste it.
I would like excel to send an SMS text message (via Skype maybe?)when a particular set of conditions arise in a spreadsheet. I am not sure if this would be best carried out with spreadsheet functions or vba, or if it is possible at all.
I had two formulas for working with phone tolls. I moved offices a while back and can not find the disk I burned them to, and I cant remember them.
One of the formulas was like this: If the cell contains and or equals target number than put “incoming” (and/or if not than “outgoing”) in this (a different) cell.
I also had a formula that if the phone numbers came in 3 columns i.e. area code in one column, prefix in a second column and the last four digits in a third column, would combine all the numbers in one cell.
I read the thread below on how to utilize the Subsitute function to remove periods and thought about being able to use it for this. However, I have some phone #'s in my list that contain multiple 1- scenarios in them because the area code or 3-digit prefix sometimes include a 1- also. How do I make the formula only look at the 1- for long distance and not any other 1- found in the phone #? I want to remove all of the 1- for long distance because we are trying to use a new autodialer that is pre-programmed with the 1-.
I am using VBA to enter customer information into a Microsoft SQL database. I have an excel sheet with thousands of customers listed. I will be using a While loop to process each line of the sheet. Part of the While loop needs to make any format changes necessary before the data moves over to the DB. So here is the issue:
