I have this data below in an excel worksheet. I'm using the ws.Cells(x,x).Value command to read values from the cells an print them out to a .prn fixed width file. However when it writes it to the .prn file my numeric fields don't have are not 0.00 but 0. And also the numeric fields are left justified I would like them right justified in the .prn file.
Excel Spreadsheet values
My output to .prn file looks like below:
1.135.1 02/29/12 0 0 1.135.1 02/29/12 0 0
I would like my output to .prn file to look like the following:
I am having a problem importing fixed width text files with VBA. I created a user form for a dept to import a number of reports we get as text files into Excel. I imported each line into 1 cell (Column A) in Excel and then used mid functions to split out the columns. Everything works fine on my PC. However, when I use other PCs to import the same files (either off the same shared drive or the PC hard drive) the columns are not splitting in the correct places. Does anybody know what could cause this. Since the columns are splitting based off a fixed number of characters, I'm assuming Excel is somehow distorting a character count while opening the text file. I did notice that if I try to import text files saved on one of our shared drives, they do not import correctly on my PC either. However, if I copy and save the same text file to any of the other shared drives or my PC, it imports with no problems.
I'm trying to make this macro work to resize images for our fashion Look Book. In theory, it should work. But of course it does not Here is the code we are using:
Sub BIGcrop() Selection.Height = 507.6 x = Selection.ShapeRange.Width y = x / 2 Z = y - 144
I want all my pictures to have a height of 7.05 inches and a width of 4. The height comes out different everytime depending on the scaling of the template I'm using. I need it to adjust accordingly. I'm open to having the image move into merged cells, as long as it will first adjust the height and then crop the sides (so the orientation stays the same).
Is it possible to adjust a cells' column width without the whole column width changing? EXAMPLE...I'm looking to lock rows 1-41 at certain column widths and change the column width as needed from rows 42 and below.
I Want to be able to put in Col A the concatenate results of all equal P/N's from any given list. Or at least select the few cells that i know are duplicates and from that copy the Location to a single Column.
ColA ColB__ColC ______Loc__PN 1,2____1___A _______2___A _______3___B 4,5____4___C _______5___C
Got two spreadsheets that should be identical, and in both the column widths ARE identical - when you look at the no. of Pixels. However, the other width is different. So what's the relationship between width and pixels? Is this difference to be expected?
I set a column width to some integer like 10, and the next time I open the file it has changed to something like 9.89. Is there some configuration that prevents this from happening and leaves my setting alone?
I am looking for an formula to calculate the bin width for a histogram chart.
I am thinking of creating 50 bins for the chart. The range (max - min) of the data can be from £10 to £5,000,000.
A straighforward formula will be (max - min)/ 50. But I don't want decimal point in the bin numbers.
I am thinking of using Floor/Ceiling function, to round the bin-width to whole numbers, but 10/50, 100/50, 1000/50,..., 1000000/50 all need to round up/down to different scales! for example, I want 100/50 round to 5, 1000/50 round to 50 etc.....I was wondering is there a formula I can use to calculate the bin-width based on the criteria above or similar?
I'm creating a map like image with Excel, and I've set the column width and row height to certain dimensions. Now I'm entering in some text into them, and I noticed that when I added in 2 digit numbers, the column width expanded a little bit. I want to prevent this from happening, and still be able to enter in the 2 digit text (since it WILL fit, and it's expanding to keep that extra bit of space).
the Ruler across the top that allows you to adjust the column widths (A B C D etc). Is it possible to insert another Ruler, further down the same page, to allow you to adjust the column width differently. if so how. On Excel 2007
Lets say i type for now... A1 = USA B1 = Philippines
and then later A1 = dog B1 = cat
Is there a way that the width would automatically adjust even as I change the values of the given cells; meaning, if a word is long, the width will automatically adjust "longer", if a word is short, then it will automatically adjust "shorter".
I know how the "AutoFit Column Width" works but I don't want to press that every time my values change (words becoming shorter or longer).
i want o make some command buttons on a sheet with the width 50 and when you move the mouse over to any one the width of that one should increase to 300. when you move he mouse over to the other one the size of the previous one should return to 50 and the new one (now under the mouse) should be 300.
i have written the code for it how ever it tends to increase the width twice i.e. it will increase the size of the command button, then reduce it to 50 and increase it again. this action makes it look like it flickering
Option Explicit Dim sShapes As Shape Dim ActShapes As Shape Dim wsStart As Worksheet, WsNew As Worksheet Dim wd Dim mybutton Dim ShapeChk As Boolean
1. Is there a faster way to adjust the size of the columns? I had to use my mouse to stretch the column out. This can be quiet time consuming if there are 8 columns needing to adjust to the same size. ie Col A, B,I, J needs to be the same size.
2. Can Excel determine the best size for the column? Say I need a column with data saying "yes" and "no" and a column for the letter "X" only or do I have to stretch the width of the column myself?
The problem with it is, the Height and Width is arbitrary to the size of the cells at the moment. I would like to had a procedure to calculate does value. They represent the distance between the defined cells location for the image. Actually, if cells width or height change, the picture is misplaced.
