Excel 2010 :: Formula That Will Work With Text And Numbers?

Dec 10, 2013

I am working in Excel 2010 (Windows 8) and am having real problems trying to find a function/formula that will work with both numbers and text. I am trying to identify if the contents of Col A cells and Col C cells on each row are duplicated within a worksheet, and if they are, to add a 'J'.

(Column A is a list of numerical company codes and Column C is a list of adviser codes using the letter A-G. If a company ID code has more than one of the same adviser codes referenced to it, it is termed 'Joint', hence the 'J').

The formula I've used is: =IF(A2:C2, FREQUENCY>1, "J")

I need to remove numbers from a string of text and put them into new cells in Excel Starter 2010. There are two different values which need moving. The first is in parentheses and the second follows the parentheses.

Here's a few examples of what I mean:

Original text RED008 - Wickaman and Hoodlum bandwidth (0.06Gb @ 2.00) 0.12 MFR005EP - Various Artists bandwidth (0.19Gb @ 2.00) 0.38 RAZORS010 Future Cut bandwidth (0.01Gb @ 2.00) 0.01

would like to split into...

Cell 1 RED008 - Wickaman and Hoodlum bandwidth MFR005EP - Various Artists bandwidth RAZORS010 Future Cut bandwidth

A formula I am using is outputting "0" instead of the expected value. Upon evaluating the formula I realized that this was because some of the values - years, in this case - had quotes around them while others did not. Please see the image below for the screenshot of the evaluation.

These values - the years - are being evaluated in the following formula.

Code: =SUM( IF(inventory!$F$3:$R$3=$A3, IF(inventory!$B$4:$B$56=$G$1, IF(inventory!$D$4:$D$56=$G$2, inventory!$F$4:$R$56)))) This formula references the following sheet (an excerpt from that sheet). You can also see the formulas found in the cells causing the problem.

I suspect that the problem is being caused by the output of the formula in these cells. If I simply type in "2011" instead of using the formula in B52:B56, then the first formula in the code section above does not have a problem.

Excel 2010, I have the following list (showing part of it):

Name T-Shirt Sizes Nathan S

[Code]....

The aim of the list is to see what Sizes each and every person needs and then count how many T-Shirts are required for that particular size. The list is over a 100 entries long so counting it manually isn't really an option as it's time consuming as well as errors might arise.

Thus, I've been trying to use the IF statement with the following logic but to as no avail

IF Size in Column is XS Add 1 to a particular Cell IF Size in Colum is S Add 1 to a particular Different Cell

and so on for the other sizes...kind of like a counter for a for-do-loop.

I have a text box that is set to "=B1". B1 is a cell from an Access table import with memo format. The text memo is long, probably on average between 1000-2000 characters. I have set up the text box to automatically resize for the text, but the text stops at what I assume is 255 characters, even though cell B1 displays the entire memo.

How can I set it up so that this text box (or any other similar shape) displays the text and retains its resize/wrap property?

I have an issue with the excel freeze in our organisation.

Our organisation works on Citrix and the office applications have been upgraded to 2010 very recently.We have both 2003 excel users and 2010 excel users.There is a user who has a problem working on excel 2010 the excel freezes.Excel 2010 works fine for some time and all at a sudden hangs,once its hung it freezes all the other applications.

The same file runs properly on the other 2010 systems.The Excel file which hangs are also not of huge in size.

I am unable to get to the rootcause of the issue why the excel freezes or hangs in the middle of the work getting to the root cause of the issue and an answer for the excel hanging.

First I made some contents and drew a border from Home > Font > all Borders on an Excel 2010 file. So it became like below image (capture1). After that I wanted to print it so went to File > Print to see its preview. But the problem is that the lines between tue and wed and also between mon and tue are not shown neither in preview nor when printing. The height of row 7 until 17 is 24 (that is 32 pixel) but heights of the rest of the rows are normal (20 pixel).

My company recently upgraded everyone to Microsoft 2010 from 2007 version. I have no substantial VBA skill and left with a VBA code which is supposed to extract a list of outlook emails sitting in a shared mailbox into Excel.

I was using that VBA code in Outlook 2007 and it worked fine but shows the following error when run in Outlook 2010: 'Run-time error '-2147221233 (8004010f)': The attempted operation failed. An object could not be found. Here is part of the code:

[Code] .....

It worked after one of the members suggested to "click on any line of this code and press F8 repeatedly until the yellow focus moves to the error line, don't press F8 anymore. Now in immediate window, copy paste each of below lines, press enter after each line. Let us know where the error occur." However, it stop working the next day.

I have csv file with tab delimited fields (see attached blacklist.csv). 3rd and 4th fields are in format dd/mm/yyyy hh24:mi:ss, some fields can be zero. I need to split data to columns and display datetime fields in format dd.mm.yyyy hh:mm:ss.

OK... open csv in Excel, select column A, press button "Split in columns", select tab as delimiter, choose date format (DMY) for 3rd and 4th field and press OK. Test is splitted into columns, now select columns C and D and select desired format "dd.mm.yyyy hh:mm:ss". Then I select columns A:E and set column widths to fit data in columns. This all is OK and without problems (see attached file Handmade.xlsx).

But now... Now I record all previous step into macro. There is macro text: [Code] ....

Now I copy macro text into clipboard and open blacklist.csv again. Insert button to list and bind it to new macro. Paste text of macro from clipboard. (See attached file blacklist_beforeClick.xlsm). Now click button Btn and voila... some dates remain in previous format, some dates seems to be in desired format, but day and month are swapped. Why are there differences when comparing data made by hand and data made by macro??? compare.jpg This is the same behavior in more computers, some use Czech version of Excel 2010, some use English version.

I've created a spreadsheet at work that has two summary tabs which contain hyperlinks to around 30 separate sheet tabs.

On each sheet tab there is a list of unique values in column A (and other information relating to each value in columns B to D which are repeated for more than one unique value). In column E, users enter a test script name against each unique value they wish to 'reserve', and the macro picks out the unique test script names and via the COUNTIF formula counts the frequency of each test script name for each of the different values in column B.

My problem is that the macro seems to work fine if the workbook is not shared, but errors if the workbook is saved as shared. The error is 'Run time error 1004 - Unable to select the MergeCells property of the Range class'.

Here is the macro code:

Sub Get_Policies_Per_Script(updCol As Long, ShtName As String) Dim rowctr As Long Dim tgtrow As Long

Const ppsformula As String = "=COUNTIFS($A$3:$A$65000,I$24,$E$3:$E$65000,$G"

If updCol = 5 Then 'test name column has been modified

I am currently using a pop up calendar in Excel 2010 that with CTL+SHIFT+B that a calendar pops up, you select your date, and then the calendar closes. What I now need is to write a code or formula or something that when I click in any cell in column F lets say that the calendar opens automatically in that cell and then still close automatically after the date selection is made.

Using Excel 2010, I set up a simple workbook with a spreadsheet on one page and the ranges for data validation on another. I successfully linked the fields in the "Category" and "Tender" columns with the data on the second sheet, making nice drop down menus. Everything works fine on my computer. However, when we open the workbook on a different station, the drop down menus disappear. If you highlight any of the "Category" or "Tender" fields, the little drop down prompt is missing; they behave like regular, un-formatted fields. It appears that the data validation became un-linked.

We tried opening versions with certain fields locked (Mainly the Total, Breakdown, and Summary areas, but the fields with data validation were still editable), and also completely unlocked documents. Every time, the drop down lists were lost when opened on different stations.

I've attached the completely unlocked version : 00_FLEX TRAVEL EXPENSE REPORT_v3.xlsx

Forget to check a box or something? This seems way harder for me to figure out that it should be!

Using Microsoft Access to pull from a database work orders. Some of those are what we call "dummy" work orders and have a letter in them, real work orders are signified by a 10 digit number. I would like to sort and eliminate the letters to find appropriate data. I am assuming I will need to copy into excel and do some sort of formatting but not sure where to start.

I'm currently working on my masters dissertation and am using excel 2010.

Basically, I'm trying to generate a list of say, 1000 numbers within a range. I can already do this using the rand() function. However, I need excel to take each random number, apply it into a formula, and then list the answers in a seperate location. This would be easy to do if there was one simple function (which i could just insert into any adjacent cell). The problem is that each random number value is input into a table. The table, which has about 10 columns and 200+ rows, gives one final answer.

I'm sure there has to be a faster way than creating 1000 tables for each random number generated.

Let's say I have a list of 1000 random numbers in sheet 1. the function table is in sheet 2 and produces the answer in the same sheet, in a single cell. I'd like excel to use each random number generated, input it into the function table, attain the answer from the table, and list it in the cell next to the random number.

I have given a table with some decimal values like e.g 0.3658 0.358 0.485 0.7863 0.558 0.858 0.985, I want to find the sum and average of these number.

1) I have tried the autosum or auto Function =AVERAGE(A2:A7) but it yields #DIV/0! error 2) when I use =AVERAGEA(A2:A7), it yield ans=0 3) puttin =ROUND(AVERAGEA(H2:H23);3) also yields 0;

Open a brand new spreadsheet whether the format is set to "General" or "Text" it will not let me enter numbers. For example, when I enter 2007 in the cell it displays 20 07 not really that big of space between the two zeros - but still a space. I can't format this no matter what I do.

In Excel 2010, I have a list of numbers with about 7000 rows. I am trying to track the number of times the number "22" appears within 30-day periods, with the end-result being a "count column".

While I could enter a formula manually for the date ranges, there are over 200 time-spans I'd have to enter (list goes back to year 1994). Is there a way to automate this process...

I have a column of Dates in Col B with corresponding X values in Col C. I specify a start date in Cell F14 and an end date in Cell F16. I then use the function shown in cell H6 to identify the starting row number (corresponding to start date) in Cell F6. If I used the same function to identify the end row (in this case 4/2/13), it would choose row 8 which is the first row in which it encounters that date. Unfortunately, I need the end row to identify the last row that date appears in. In this case, that would be row 11.

I am trying to find duplicate numbers in sets but so far I can only highlight the ones that are in exact order. I need to find each set that has the same numbers, in any order. Example..

I will provide an example of sets of 3. But I get 3, 4 usually but sometimes 5 or 6.

I get them from different people.

Person A- 234, 569, 498, 849, 848,343,567,347 etc...

Person B- 432, 596, 677, 566, 565,433, 455 etc..

Now I need to find each set that has the same numbers, any order. Like 234 from A and 432 from B would be the same, so I would need to highlight them 2 sets. But I can not figure out how to do this. For Excel to highlight it they have to be 234 and 234. Does not recognize same numbers, different order.

I am my excel worksheet (excel 2010) I have one cell that changes every day (number). I want this number to open my htm document and replace the same number in a string in the htm and save/close this.

An example: My htm document is located at C:/ and named XX.htm

The number I want from excel is in cell A1 in sheet1, and the worksheet is located in D:/ named yy.xlsx

And the text(number) I want to replace is in the following string in the htm document, in this string it is 72, next day it can be 30:

I have a text file with rows and columns of numbers ranging from 1-4 digits that I'd like to import/copy into Excel with each number being in its own cell. But whenever I copy/try to import, Excel splits all of the 3-4 digit numbers up into single digit numbers. The text file has 10,000+ columns (each number occupies two columns so I have half of that amount in numbers) and 300+ lines.

Is the file simply too large for Excel to handle or is there a way I can do this?

I am using Excel 2010 and I am trying to calculate 4 different factors' (columns) values which are numbers. Based on my analysis I will assign the value from 1-5 for each factor and at the end I have to decide the priority (a new column) adding all 4 columns' numbers. My Priority column has three criteria (High, Medium, and Low) but I don't know what formula/function to use and how. I have tried IF function but did not work.
