# 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.

Can I retrieve, from VBA, the exact value of a cell?

If in A1 I write 0.12348 with general, number or text format, from vba with MsgBox ActiveSheet.Cells(1, 1) I obtain 0.12348.

If in A1 write 0.12348 with currency or accounting formats, from vba with MsgBox ActiveSheet.Cells(1, 1) I obtain 0.1235.

Naturally, I need retrieve complete values from cells with format accounting?

I have a set of data that has a company name using commas to separate INC and LLC from the company name. e.g. Acme Explosives, LLC

I'm using Excel 2010, and when I try to use the find/replace functionality to find commas, I get an error message saying "We couldn't find what you were looking for. Click Options for more ways to search.

Short of editing all the fields manually (only about 300, so not too bad), I'm hoping there is a simple way to replace these commas with nothing.

I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet that I am using to save several numbers all in the same column. These numbers can range from the several thousands up to billions. The formatting I am using for these numbers is Number (using 1000s separator).

number_forma.png

I am also using the spreadsheet to generate a text string for each of the numbers. I don't want the text string to show the number as it is, I want to shorten the number by only showing the first few digits followed by a "B" for billion, "M" for million, or "K" for thousand. For example, in the text string I want to show 1,600,000 as 1.6B.

In order to shorten the number I use the cell in the column to the right of each number. This cell uses the following custom formatting (which I found by doing a Google search): [>999999999.999]#.0,,,"B";[>999999.999]#,,"M";#,"K";

custom_format.png

As you can see the formatting is quite complex (at least for me it is) but it does what I want it to do.

Here is a screenshot of what the original and custom formatted cells look like:

custom_formatted_cells.png

As you can see the custom formatting works and does exactly what I wan

The next column (after the custom formatted number) is where I put the generated text string for each of the numbers. As I stated above, I want the generated text to use the shortened version of the number (e.g. 1.6B).

To generate the text I use the CONCATENATE function with a reference to the cell containing the shortened number as one of the arguments. For example:

CONCATENATE("SOME STRING ", B1)

Where B1 is the custom formatted cell.

The problem I am running into is, the text that gets generated doesn't show the shortened format of the number, it shows the full number. Here is a screenshot demonstrating what is happening:

concatenate_formula.png

As you can see the generated text is "SOME STRING 1600000000". This is not what I want. I want the generated text to be "SOME STRING 1.6B".

I think I understand what's going on. When the CONCATENATE function references a cell it takes the actual value of the cell and ignores any formatting. (I suppose formatting is just the way you see the data, not how underlying functions receive the data.)

My question is, how can I re-write the CONCATENATE function (or use another function, etc. available to me) to use the formatted version of the cell?

*UPDATE* I have attached my spreadsheet as an attachment to this post (tackyjan_excelforums.xlsx). Please note that it was created and saved using Excel 2010.

Recorded macro. The hope is to insert a excel formatted table a set number of times. I have found a loop code that references a Cell A1 and repeats that amount of times. So if A1= 10. There should be 10 tables inserted. However on the second time there is a fault with the table name. I need the name to change each time the loop is run. ie Table1, Table2, Table3 etc up until the loop stops (A1 contents).

I am using excel for windows 2010. The macro that i have so far is below.

Sub LoopTest()

Dim n

Dim V

Range("A1").Select

V = ActiveCell.Value

I'm using Excel 2010, and I need to restrict the value the user can enter into a cell (E9).

In cell E3 is the screen width (pixels). eg 6024

In cell E5 is the preferred width of a window. eg 450

The user, in cell E9, enters an x coordinate for which they prefer the top left corner of the window whose width is specified in E5.

If the value that the user enters in E9, added to the width entered in E5, exceeds the value of E3, (if E9+E5 > E3) then the value should be disregarded (window will be off right of screen) and the user re-enter.

I'm not familiar with the use of data validation, so I'm uncertain as to how to use it in this circumstance.

Have developed a form for my associates and want them to be able to move to the cellls I want them to fill data in to by merely hitting the TAB or ENTER key vs. having to move the cursor to each cell requiring them to input data.

Want cursor to move in a specific cell order. You would think you could merely say 1M, 2C, etc.

I have developed a Userform button in Excel 2010 using the developer icons, which when clicked on with my mouse it runs my super dooper macro. It works great!

But one thing I want to have happen is to have the choice of using the Enter key to start the macro or use the left mouse button

For example, I place data in (say) cell A1 and the userform button is in cell A2. When I place the data in A1 and press the Enter key, the cursor moves down to A2, but doesn't highlight the user button. When I press the Enter key again, the cursor moves to cell A3.

What I want is when I fill in the data in A1 and press the Enter key, the cursor moves to cell A2 and selects the button, so that when I press the Enter key again, it activates the macro.

I'm having some trouble getting control ENTER & EXIT events to fire properly when having controls embedded on frames within a userform. I'm using Excel 2003, 2007, & 2010. Here's the userforms I'm working with:

With FRAME:

Without FRAME:

In both cases, the DESCRIPTION field is disabled. The selectable controls on both are a combo-box, textbox, listbox, & 2 buttons. On the FRAMED version, the combo-box & textbox are contained on a FRAME.

Here's the code, same on both userforms:

Code:

Option Explicit

Private Sub cmbRecipes_Enter()

ListBox1.AddItem "ENTER - " & cmbRecipes.Value

End Sub

Private Sub cmbRecipes_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)

ListBox1.AddItem "EXIT - " & cmbRecipes.Value

End Sub

All this is doing is posting a message to the listbox when the combo-box ENTER & EXIT events fire. This works as expected without the FRAME, ENTER is shown when the combo-box is entered and EXIT is shown as focus is moved to another control. But when running it on the FRAMED version all I get is a single ENTER event recorded regardless of how I move the focus through the control set.

Another oddity is that if I have more than 1 control that can receive focus on the FRAMED version, it appears to work correctly.

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. 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?

I need a formula to transfer the values in on cell to another designated cell. "AM" should be in the cell under "AM and "PM" should be under the cell marked "PM". If there's nothing in the space where AM or PM is, that should be blank.

Two formulas which I need in Cells E74 and E75.

Basically the formulas will depend whether the entry in D73 are Yes or No

in cell E74, IF D73 = ‘No’ then E74 = D74 + E70 ELSE IF ‘D73’ = ‘Yes’ then E74 = E70

in cell E75, IF D73 = ‘No’ then E74 = D74 + E70 ELSE IF D73 = ‘Yes’ then E74 = E70

How do I combine a formula and text in the same cell in excel 2010.

What I am looking for is the sum of a number of cells, followed by text.

e.g. something like =SUM(E4:E50)"/35"

If the sum result of cells E4:E50 was 10, I would be expecting to see visible in the cell '10/35'

How do I write this formula?

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.

I have a large spreadsheet that I would like to indicate the location of the cells (Change cell color or text color) which contain formulas. My thought is that conditional formatting would be the easiest way...

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%.

pivot table?

Is there a Color Function type vba code that can give me the color integer? I have one that can do that for cells that I've manually colored but I can't find a code that works on conditionally formatted cells.

As seen from my attached file,

The colour of the percentage cell changes according to its percentage. I would like the S/N cells to have the same colour as the total percentage cells automatically. (Even when the percentage updates)

Secondly, for the cells under "Target", if the target dates are 1 day before today(the current date on a particular day) and the actual date is not filled, the cell fill will turn amber.

If today is on or after the target date and the actual date is not filled, the cell will turn red.

However, if the actual date is filled, the target date cell will be filled green, overwriting the above two condition.

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.

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.

I need entering multiple arguments in an IF formula in Excel 2013. Here is the formula with just 1 argument.

=IF(SUM($G$4:G15)>3000,G15*0.8,0)

I need to combine it with the following.........

=IF(SUM($G$4:G15)>10000,sum($G$4:G15)-G15,0)

So to say, if the sum totals more than 3000 but less than 10000, then I want the cell value (G15) multiplied by 80% (.80). if it is greater than 10000, i want the sum minus 10000. If both arguments are false (sum totals less than 3000) then the value placed should be 0.
