Excel 2010 :: Formatting Military Times And Calculation
Jul 2, 2014
I work for a freight company and have been trying to create a macro for a spreadsheet that I have to create every single day. I pull a report from a program called the AS400 and it sends me an excel spreadsheet with information about certain shipments such as close time and arrive time (which are in military time such as 16:00) along with driver names.
Anyways what I need to accomplish is to highlight the entire rows font in red if the driver arrived an hour or more past there close time. When I get the spreadsheet the military times are not showing in the HH:MM format under format cells. So I select the HH:MM format and try to do a formula such as Arrive time cell (M1) - close time cell (L1) to get the time difference it shows as #VALUE!. I've tried to convert it to different time formats and nothing works. The values just stay the same and will not allow me to do calculations with them.
At first I thought this was because the program was sending those values as text. I tried to use the date>text to columns>finish button on the columns but did not work. I've tried to remove the":" then use the HH:MM cell format but still wont work. I've even tried a time value formula to try to convert the values such as =TIMEVALUE(LEFT(A1,2)&”:”&RIGHT(A1,2)).
But nothing works it will not allow me to add or subtract from the time values no matter what I do. I am running excel 2010 on Windows XP the english version.
I am using excel 2010 and I am trying to find a formula whats going to give me added break with a set time but anything over a set time doesn't. I want it over 10:58:00 and under 11:32:00. I've got the numbers and tried with a formula but all whats happening is that all the data is adding 30mins break to the end time.
The sheet is using live times and data so the start times vary as do the due time.
I have a sorting question in Excel 2010. Attached is an example workbook with a simplified version of the situation.
I want to sort a table multiple times. I have a table with part numbers and alphanumeric locations (Row, Shelf, Bay, Slot). I have formulas that divide up the location into 4 separate columns to be able to sort.
The first sort I do is by location, which I can easily achieve. The issue I have is sorting AGAIN by part number, while keeping the original sort somewhat intact. If a part number shows up multiple times (i.e. in two DIFFERENT locations), the Nth instance might show somewhere down the list.
Is there a way to sort my table to where you keep it in location order WHILE accounting for duplicates, which I would want grouped together in location order? Please see attached file : SortExample.xlsx
When I run macros usually they're fast, but occasionally will run very slow. An example macro I have is pasted below. It's just a simple macro that pastes months. If I am pasting on top of a cell that contains a month it pastes the rest of the months that follow.
Most of the time this macro runs very fast, but occasionally it takes about 1-2 seconds to run, and it is a very simple macro! It is not macro specific, as all my macros will be slow. I''m using Windows 7 with Excel 2010. I'm only using 23% of my CPU and 4.5GB of my 16GB of RAM, so I don't think it's a hardware thing.
Is there some kind of condition that occurs that will make excel run macros slower?
Adm Date Adm Time Trans Date Trans Time 1/16/2014 937 1/16/2014 1045 1/1/2014 121 1/1/2014 121 1/14/2014 800 1/11/2014 735 1/30/2014 100 1/30/2014 205 1/13/2014 800 1/12/2014 1202
I would like to calculate the difference (# hours spanned from the dates shown). Unfortunately when we transfer the data the COLON is dropped from MILITARY TIME so I am having problems in the calculation. This is also made more difficult as some of the calculates span over two dates.
I have a sheet that contains the following columns: Invoice, Document #, Date, PO #, Part #, Part Description, Quantity, Net Amount
Based on the quantity in the row I need to copy the row, and insert it n-1 times. So if the quantity is 5, I need to copy and insert the data below the original row 4 times for a total of 5 rows of data.
I plan on firing the macro with a button as the data will change month to month.
Excel 2010 - I need to create a graph that shows a week's use of a sportsground showing what sports were played, on which days and between which times. I thought I could show the times on the vertical axis, days on the horizontal axis and then the sports played in those times, however I'm unsure as to how to get the graph to recognise the times.
I've attached an example of some data and how I'd like to see it, I'm just not sure how I can do this using the chart set up!
How do I enter a formula in excel 2010 that will give the total amount of times each number is in this group. Example : how many times (total) the number 12 showed up , how many times the number 27 showed, and so on for each number that is in the entire group of numbers, from 1 to 80 .
Here is the page I will copy and paste into a workbook sheet from the internet that i want to evaluate the times each number was called.
Very new to all this , I am a bit aged and need not to learn excel A to Z, just need to know what correct statements /formulas have to be entered to do what i desire.
I am only interested in the total count of the small bold numbers 1 to 80, each single digit 1 to 9 and double digits 10 to 80 will be in their separate cells. The large bold three digit numbers and dates/times will have to be erased (manually) before the calculation takes place.
I'm running Windows XP with Excel 2010. I would like to be able to have a group of 19 boxes of which each box has a unique entry, ie 1, 3B, 5C etc. Each box I'd like to have a way in which when selected only the single or dual unique characters show as a color. See attached spreadsheet with sample. When a cell with lets say 1 is selected, a drop box appears and the color and description are shown. Select a color but only show the 1 and the color selected, leaving behind the description. How can I do this for all 19 boxes. This seems like its a classic conditional format. Unfortunately it appears to be several orders of difficulty than a normal conditional format.
I have a sheet where staff enter the time it takes to do a task. I'm using a custom format of [mm]:ss. However, I enter (for instance) 5 into the cell, the value becomes 7200:00. I finally figured out that this is because that is the number of minutes in 5 days. However, I don't want staff to have to enter 00:05:00 to indicate they worked for 5 minutes. I would rather them be able to enter something like 5:30 (or something along those lines) to indicate this took 5 minutes and 30 seconds.
I'm trying to do conditional formatting that applies to an entire column (that way there are fewer conditional rules), but it only applies to a certain range of cells within that column. So what I did was setup the rule such as:
Formula I want to use:
If I copy the entire formula into a cell on the spreadsheet itself, it works just fine returning TRUE and FALSE depending on what row I'm on.
However, the above formatting rule does NOT format ANY row. But if I remove the AND function and the first condition (the one that limits which rows it's actually going to apply to) then it will work...OR if I do NOT use the INDIRECT function then it seems to work, it's some weird combonation of using the two together that is causing it to not evaluate to true.
Oh, and I thought of trying to get the formatting to work with the INDIRECT...then I put in the AND function but the only parameter was the original INDIRECT function (see below)...it stops formatting!
In Excel 2010 onwards (probably 2007 as well) there are two right click context menus that pop up on a cells.
The "Cell" command bar and also a smaller formatting bar.
What is this bar called and if you remove it how do you get it back when you have removed all the standard bars.
The above doesn't seem to get back the formatting bar. I did managed to get it back but through luck rather than judgement. Just through looping through every commadbar and printing it to the immediate window.
I've added the name of the context menu to each commadbar but the formatting one does not get a name put at the bottom of it. I've looked on this site and it doesn't seem to say anything about this new menu.
I have a column of numbers that are already formatted as text. Some of the data is duplicate which is fine. It's like a list of 6000 numbers. I want to conditionally format the column so that I can fill the cell with a color as long as it stays the same number, but if it changes to a new number make it a different color. I don't need a lot of colors. Two is fine. TI have Excel 2010.
I have a spreadsheet where we track our contractor's Worker's Comp and General Liability insurance certificate expiration dates. I want the expiration date to highlight in red if it is expired and to highlight in orange if it will expire within 30 days or less.
I have attached a testing sheet similar to what I'm working on. The F column has the dates that need to highlight. I have MS Excel 2010.
I am trying to do a conditional formatting based on the result in one cell but it needs to add up multiple cells first to determine which conditional format it needs to use. I am not sure whether I need to do a formula conditional format or whether to use cell is greater than with =sum() in it. I have tried both but neither seem to be working correctly. I have attached an example of the spreadsheet and the conditions I am trying. I am using 2010 version.
Basically, the closing amount for Monday in prod 1 (cell c4), needs to display in red if sum of the cumm value for Tuesday (L4), Wed (N4), Thur (P4) & Fri (R4) is greater than that value or display in amber if the sum of the cumm value for Tuesday (L4), Wed (N4), Thur (P4).
I need to complete the same for the whole column for Monday (col C) for each appropriate product. Then the same for column B but this will sum different cells but the principal will be the same.
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 date in column A. I want to format to YELLOW column F based on whether column F is blank and 20 days past column A. I also want the formatting to change colors to RED if it remains blank past 30 days. Then, when column F is filled in I want the formatting to be removed.
I've run into an issue where conditional formatting is working correctly 98% of the time, but 2% seems beyond logic. Basically if I have more than 120% of Stock Limit on hand I want the cells to turn green. To do this I entered the following Conditional Formatting formula in cell D4:
HTML Code: =((D4-$C4)/$C4)>=$E$1
I copied the formatting to all the other cells in the range, and most are colored correctly. This is what I get:
As you can see, it works correctly for the most part, however some cells, such as cell H5 in the example, that should be colored by they aren't.
My first thought was that this is an issue with the reference, because as I examine other cells it doesn't look like conditional formatting formulas are updated relative to that particular line, however that is the same case for my red formats and those are correct. I have over 50,000 rows so creating a new formula for each row certainly isn't the preferred option, neither is writing a macro to manually color them because of the processing time. I'm using Excel 2010.
I am trying to use condtional formatting to highlight a row in a table if the order number is NOT on another table, on a different sheet. Example: Order Number 1001 is in my table on Sheet4, Once the order has been filled is comes off my "Pending Orders" table on Sheet1, which is based on a data connection, so it updates once the connection is refreshed. I would like the row with order number 1001 in my table on Sheet4 to be highlighted letting me know it can now be removed, since I have to manually manage this table. I am using Excel 2010.
