Excel 2010 :: Maintaining Format In A Cell When Using Formula

Jan 10, 2014

I just upgraded to Excel2010 and noticed that if I calculate percentages resulting from other formulas, the result displays as a percentage with 15 decimal places and it ignores the format of the cell. My guess is that since formulas are being used in cells A1,B1, and C1, Excel is ignoring the format. When I hard code the numbers, I obtain the desired result.

Is there a way to change the default of 15 decimal places for formula results involving inputs that use formulas in their own creation? (outside of the Round function in each cell? Within Options?)

The data looks like this:

A1 = formula resulting in 1.76%
B1 = formula resulting in 1.90%
C1 = formula resulting in 1.69%

D1 = C1*B1/A1 resulting in 1.8218147382920100%

The desired result is 1.82%.

Excel 2010 :: Making Hard Coded Cell Dynamic While Maintaining Original Content

May 16, 2014

I pulled a set of financial statements from a database into Excel. All of the values are hard coded but I would like to make them dynamic, while maintaining the original content. For example, If cell C3 is a revenue figure for 2012 (\$1,000) I would like to link it to cell C5, which will be a currency conversion rate (2.0). So I would like cell C3 to read =1000*C5, which would equal 2000, and for cell D3 to equal 2013 sales*D5, etc. I would also like this to go across a specified range so that I can also change operating expenses, taxes, etc over a number of columns (dates) that I define, all linking to the conversion rate for the given year. Having another tab where you link and anchor is an option but I would prefer something in VBA where I can qickly include this functionality with new workbooks that I download.

I am using Excel 2010.

Maintaining Row Format

Feb 28, 2007

I have a table where alternate rows are formatted with interiror colorindex 15. Macros will result in 1 or more of the rows in the table being hidden (this can be consequtive rows).

Obviously, when a row is hidden (unless that results in 2 consequtive rows hidden) the alternating row format no longer works (ie either 2 grey rows or 2 nofill rows together)

I am struggling with the code to set the format when a row is hidden. I loop through the table to set format, fine if no row hidden. But when row is hidden everything I try to do to take account of the hidden row results in an endless loop when the hidden row is encountered.

Maintaining Cell Reference According To Its Physical Position From Formula Cell?

Jan 29, 2014

I need to make a cell display the contents of the cell immediately below it, regardless of if there are rows inserted at the referenced row or above or below it on the worksheet. ALSO I need to do this at several additional cell locations down the worksheet. Such as : A1 displays A2, A4 displays A5, A7 displays A8 etc.

Example: I want A1 to display whatever is in the cell immediately below it. In this case A2. I need to be able to insert several rows at row 2 and have whatever new value is now in the A2 position displayed in A1.
After the rows are inserted I need the cell that was in position A4 to continue to display the contents of the cell below it.

I tried using the formula in A1 of: =INDIRECT("A2") and it works good except when I insert the rows my similar formulas below the area where the rows were inserted continue to refer to the specific original cell and not the one positioned now below it.

Sort Maintaining Format

Jan 1, 2007

I have a spreadsheet that has tons of entries for revenues and expenses. Some cells on the rows with revenues have a different format than these same cells on the rows with expenses.

The problem is that, when I sort the rows to organize them by date, Excel seems to only organize the values in the cells, screwing up all the formats, mixing the revenues format with the expenses format.

Is there any way to organize the information maintaining each cell's formats?

Copying A Value Whilst Maintaining Format

Mar 2, 2009

Cell A1 could contain either % value (eg 50.0%) or could contain a numeric value (eg 50.0). (It's input is written by a macro that performs a sorting function, hence the mix of % and absolutes).

I need to copy the contents of A1 to cell B1 with a simple formula "=A1"

The problem is that Cell B1 will either show 0.5 or 50.0 depending on whether A1 is a % or number, respectively.

Doesn anyone know how I can output in B1 with the format from A1?

Excel 2010 :: Number Format Keeps Switching To Date Format?

Aug 1, 2013

I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet where the default number format keeps switching to the date format. I keep switching it back and it'll stay as a number format for a time, but then it'll switch back. This is also the case for any new worksheets in that one spreadsheet.

This only happens with this one file - everything else behaves according to my regional settings or to how the file had been previously formatted.

Excel 2010 :: Clear Formula From A Cell

Apr 4, 2014

I am using Excel 2010. I am extracting text and data info from a single cell and inserting the info into different cells. Let's say the following formula is entered into cell M28:

=IF(MID(J28, FIND("IM", J28),2)="IM", MID(J28, FIND("IM", J28),10), "")

This tests cell J28 to see if the text string "IM" is present in that cell.

If it is, then the text "IM" plus the following eight characters become the result in cell M28.

If the text string "IM" is not present in cell J28, I want the contents of cell M28, that is the formula itself, to be deleted from cell M28. EG below:

=IF(MID(J28, FIND("IM", J28),2)="IM", MID(J28, FIND("IM", J28),10), function here to delete this formula from this cell)
( logical test ) ( value if true ) ( value if false )

Excel 2010 :: Reference Cell Value Not Formula

Jun 4, 2014

Excel 2010. When the result of the formula in Col. E is less than zero, I need to move the row to another sheet, and then delete the row.

I modified another poster's script as follows:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
' Move rows with negative value in E to Flagged Items sheet
Dim rng As Range
' Set Target Range
Set rng = Target.Parent.Range("E2:E200")

[Code] ........

The script works perfectly if a negative value is manually entered into a cell in Col. E, but not when the result of the formula produces a negative number.

I can't find a way to make the Case Is < 0 act on the resultant value rather than the formula.

Is this possible in the script or is there another way to achieve the desired result?

Excel 2010 :: Count Formula Based On Another Cell

Aug 7, 2012

The formula I found is close but I need it to count, not sum.

=SUMIFS(\$C\$36:\$C\$51,\$B\$36:\$B\$51,\$B36)

Example data: [972 1] [972 2] [972 3] [214 1] [214 1] [765 1] [765 2]

I want the formula to count the different numbers in the second column based on the first column. The results should show, 972 equals 3, 214 equals 1, 765 equals 2.

I am trying to separate this out but it keeps putting this paragraph.

Excel 2010 :: Enter Formula Into A Cell That Is Pre-formatted To Accounting?

Jul 3, 2014

I am having a terrible time with Excel today. The version I'm using is Excel 2010.

I just want a simple division formula in a cell, formatted to accounting. This should be really easy, but it isn't reacting the normal way.

The simple division is =13588/12

The output in accounting format should be 1,132.33.

Every time I enter this formula into a cell that is pre-formatted to accounting, the result is 1132 1/3. It also erases my formula and replaces it with the value.

Excel 2007 :: Sorting While Maintaining Subtotals?

May 6, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with nested subtotals. i need to sort it based on one of the nested subtotals, but maintain the rows that comprise the subtotals, together with the subtotal.

is there a way to do this? I don't want a macro because then the whole project will be done as a macro. this is just a small part of what i am doing.

sample included. my goal is to sort by column F (ABS value) high to low so that rows 8-13 are together and maintain the subtotal and on top, then rows 34-36 are together and maintain the subtotal and are next, etc.

I am in Excel 2007.

Excel 2010 :: How To Keep XLS File Format

Jul 1, 2014

Isn't there a checkbox somewhere where I can tell Excel 2007 to leave xls files as they are? My Excel 2010 doesn't urge me to save an old xls file format into xlsx but in Excel 2007 I can't find a switch (and I don't rememeber if I had to do anything in 2010). So ultimately I want to stay in compatibility mode when using old files.

Excel 2010 :: 3+ Conditional Formatting Rules For Cell Range Based On Formula From Other Cells

Feb 5, 2013

how to apply conditional formatting via VBA to a range of cells based on input from another range of cells. Obviously this would be easy in Excel 2010, but I'm still using 2003 at the office and it needs to stay in this format to be readable by other users:

For cells M8:EK8, my conditional formatting
condition 2: Formula Is =AND(\$E\$8>=M2,((\$E\$8-\$D\$8)>=(N2-\$M\$2))), color index is 40
condition 3: Formula Is =AND(\$F\$8<=M2,\$G\$8>=M2), color index is 39
I want to add:
condition 4: Formula Is =AND(\$H\$8<=M2,\$I\$8>=M2), color index is 40
condition 5: Formula Is =AND(\$J\$8<=M2,\$K\$8>=M2), color index is 39
and so on

The cells in the range M8:EK8 are blank, they only get colored based on input added to D8 to K8. If there is no input, then the cells should be uncolored.

Excel 2010 :: Icon Conditional Formatting Not Working When Formula Present In Active Cell?

Mar 20, 2014

I am trying to apply icon conditional formatting in a cell. The cell contains the following formula: =VLOOKUP(D20,'owssvr(1)'!O:W,9,FALSE The formula results in a "2", "1", "0" or "-1" in the cell. The icon conditional formatting is not working at all (no icon appears). I have the conditional formatting setup as numbers Green 2, Yellow 1,0 etc based on value. If I delete the formula and just type in any of those numbers directly, it works. I have changed my cells to "number" and it still does not work.

Excel 2010 :: New Spreadsheet Won't Format Numbers

Jan 16, 2014

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.
