Format Cell To Display Number With X Added 0s

Oct 23, 2012

Is it possible to format a cell so that it displays 6x 0's after the number?

I.e. If cell A1 contains the number 14, id like it to display 14000000

However, that 14 million is a monetary value, so I would want it to also display $ , & .

If I change the number the following week to 21, it automatically becomes $21,000,000.00

Ive tried formatting it as a custom, but that only seems to had 6x 0's before the number

Format Range When New Rows Added

Jul 24, 2009

I have a worksheet on which users will enter data one row at a time, in columns A-K. When the user starts to enter data in a new row #, that is, when they make any column in the next, unused row have non-blank value, I'd like the sheet to update the borders of the row for columns A-K. I want the Range from A1 to K# to have full borders, so that the whole data set is outlined and easier to read.

For a bonus, I'd like the formulas from the previous H, I, and J cells copied down into H#, I#, and J#, adjusted appropriately for their reference changes.

Normally, I would work around the edges of such a VB problem by recording the actions manually and then modifying that code as I learned more. But I'm not sure if what I've done is the right way to start that process. I think that if I use the CurrentRegion property, and the Worksheet_Change event, I'll be well on my way.

Updating Named Range When New Contact Is Added Using R1C1 Format With A Variable

The code below is for a macro that allows the user to create a list of contacts. The column containing the names of these contacts are then referenced by a userform (code not present) by way of a Named Range. I want to update the named range whenever the user adds another contact so this new contact shows up in the user form.

I am currently referencing the range containing the names using R1C1 style, but I cannot get the variable aspect to work correctly.

Format A Cell That Has Numbers And Text?

Oct 2, 2009

I am a biologist that works with transgenic animals and I am using Excel to keep records of my mice. I would like to have a column that includes the age as calculated by the DOB of my animal on any given day.
Furthermore I would like for it to be smart enough to tell me in weeks for younger mice and months for older mice. If i do this, obviously i will need a txt string that says "x mnths" or "Y wks" or whatever.

i have come up with an if/then string that works - but for some reason it will not allow me to format the number of decimal places if i include text. here is the function:

=IF(((TODAY()-B6)/7)>12,((TODAY()-B6)/30.417) &" mnths", ((TODAY()-B6)/7) &" wks")
the B6 cell is the DOB of that particular animal.

so what this SHOULD shoot out is something to the effect of "4 mnths" or "3 wks"
depending on the age of the animal. any animal older than 12 weeks will express in function of months and any younger will be in weeks. however what i end up seeing is something like this: 5.81911431107604 mnths I dont need any where near that many dec places...and obviously this doesn't fit in any reasonably sized cell......

Format Number & Text In Same Cell

Jun 28, 2007

i have the next formula

=IF(C6="PRODUCT 1","$"&VLOOKUP(B6,N:T,3,FALSE)&" & "&"$"&VLOOKUP(B6,N:T,5,FALSE),"N/A)

which aberrantly returns text:

$24.675 & $26.2

I was wandering is there a way to format or put a formula which will format the numbers to be with two decimal places. The cell containing the formula is already formatted as number and the source tables are numbers with two decimal places.

i want the result to look like this
$24.68 & $26.20

Format Date In Cell As Text

Feb 2, 2008

I am pulling reports out of a non-windows based program. This program spits out the data directly into an Excel spreadsheet, with but a click of a button. I imagine that the designers of this program assumed that this would be useful, but it's actually proving to be quite irritating.

The Date format they have chosen for their program is NOT the date format that Excel uses, but it resembles it enough to cause serious problems. The original program tracks dates in a "dd/mm/yy" format, rather then Excel's "mm/dd/yy". To my VAST personal irritation Excel does NOT convert this into Text (which could be
manipulated by snipping it into the correct format) but instead converts it into it's own Date format, leaving me with a useless and incorrect serial number as the only data.

I cannot interact with the exporting process at all, and as the program exports DIRECTLY into Excel I cannot manipulate the data prior to import (which would be one relatively easy way of avoiding this problem). I am left trying to figure out a way to reconstruct an actual date out of this mess. Is there any way to convert a date serial number BACK into text?

Jan 12, 2010

I have a column of data that contain miscellaneous comments in each of the cells in column 'A'. This is a sample of the text in one of those cells:

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
Is there a way to programmaticly search each cell in col 'A' to look for any occurrence of the string 'fox jumps over' and highlite in RED only that string occurrence?

So in the end the above cell would now be:

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

Formula Turns Cell To Text Format

May 7, 2007

I have a workbook with two worksheets. I added a formula to the first worksheet
= COUNTIF(Scorecard!H3,"K"). It works fine when I add another COUNTIF that references another column (baseball fans may realize I'm counting total strikeouts for a batter): =COUNTIF(Scorecard!H3,"K")+COUNTIF(Scorecard!L3,"K") However, when I try to expand this to cover more columns, =COUNTIF(Scorecard!H3,"K")+COUNTIF(Scorecard!L3,"K")+COUNTIF(Scorecard!P3,"K")

Excel automatically changes the format of this cell to "Text" and it shows the formula as text instead of calculating it. What could be wrong here? Excel's documentation is woefully inadequate for cases like this. Is there an undocumented limit on how many times I can add COUNTIFs together?

Exporting A File With A Cell Value Name In Text Format

Jun 28, 2007

I've been doing this excel worksheet for work; even though I've never used excel macros or VBA before.(So if this is an easy question to answer don't laugh at me. :P) (I have worked with other programming languages though.) Anyway, using a VBA manual, I've done pretty well, until now. I'm trying to make a macro that when one clicks on the button it saves the file as a text tab delimited file, but giving it the name of whatever the user put into a specific cell. (And also without closing the excel file too, so they can add more if they have to) So I've gotten it now so that it saves with the correct name, but I am unsure about how to make it save as the text file I want. (At the moment it saves as an unreadable file) Any help would be great thanks.

I have a column with product codes. each code starts with "11P - " and is followed by a 6 digit number. Is there a way that I can format the cell so that have this automaticlly added when I type in the rest of the code. For example if I type "123456" the cell would display "11P - 123456"

I imagine that it is a matter of setting up a custom # format, but I have no clue how to do that.

Entering Specific Text Into Cell Based On Its Format

Apr 13, 2013

I'm trying to make a schedule for some of my employees (300 to be exact) and I was trying to work out a way of speeding things up a bit. I've made plenty of pretty complex equations for working with the task but the solution for what I would like to do now alludes me.

Here's the challenge: I have a sheet where I would like to insert employees within row 4 and then have their shifts shown visually in the column below that, and have the hours they work put into a merged cell (or something similar), like what can be seen in the blue cell under "Employee 1" (C6). What I would like to do is just have something like a VBA detect that a series of cells is merged (red cells) and insert the corresponding time, located within B5:B33, into that cell (with same format as the blue cell). Also, above the employee's name I could put a button to run something like a macro to run the program for the corresponding employee directly under that button.

Essentially I want to merge a series of cells, hit a button, and have excel locate and input the correct times within that merged cell.

Conditional Format Based On A Text Range Within A Cell

Nov 11, 2009

conditional format formula that is based on a text range within a cell. In my case, I would like to compare the low and high range when inputted as a number followed by the quotation marks followed by space then hyphen, space then number and ending in quotation marks. The quotation mark is being used to represent inches.

Like this in cell D14: 0.2 - 2.2

I am using the following condition format formula which works for the strict case above.

HTML =OR(D16<LEFT($D$14,3)+0,D16>MID($D$14,8,3)+0)
However, there will be times when users using this spreadsheet may leave out the spaces on either side of the hyphen, or add more than one space between the number and hyphen. Also if additional digits are added, my formula above does not include all the digits in the results. I prefer to leave the quotation marks in...........
