Format Number To Text With Specific Format

Sep 14, 2007

I'll get straight to the point: How can I change this text format from 474556788 to 0-47455678-8 (dash added after 0 and before the last number). I need to apply this to around 5000 rows (can't do that manualy). I want it to be int his format:

474556788 to 047-455678-8

Tks Auto Merged Post;474556788 to 047-455678-8 (This is the wanted format)

Save Number As Text In Txt Format Wo Changing The Format

Mar 1, 2007

In order to export an excel table into another program I first need to save the excel file as .txt. The .txt file can then be imported by the other program.

First I however need to make excel understand that the value should be a text and not a value. I therefore format the number as text (0000150235) by adding "0000150235". After saving the file as .txt the format changes from "0000150235" to """0000150235""". I do however need the format in the .txt file to be "0000150235". Can anyone tell me how I can save "0000150235" as .txt and get the value "0000150235" in the .txt file.

Conditional Number Format Based On The Value Of A Specific Cell

May 9, 2009

I have a large spreadsheet which includes many rows whose number format needs to change depending on the value of a specific cell.

So for example:

If cell B20 has value "A", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 1,234
If cell B20 has value "B", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 5.6%
If cell B20 has value "C", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 7.89
Etc...

As conditional formatting does not seem to include a number format option I've worked out that I need some sort of macro to change these settings for me, either automatically whenever the value of B20 changes or, more likely, when I manually choose to run the macro.

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.

Converting Times Stored In Date Format To Number Format?

Mar 31, 2014

One of the reports I run provides me information on lengths of time. Such a field displays as |0:09:16| indicating 9 minutes and 16 seconds. However, when the report generates the excel spreadsheet it saves these cells in date/time format ([h]:mm:ss). If I were to convert this field to the number format (so I can manipulate and graph it) it displays as such |0.00643460648148148| Ideally I would be able to have the data in the field stored as |556| (556 seconds, or 9 minutes 16 seconds). I have thousands of fields that I need to manipulate where the data is stored in this format and I can not figure out how to fix it.

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.

Extracting Specific Information From Text String To Conform To Format To Upload Into QB

Mar 21, 2014

I have a string of information in an Excel download from PayPal that I need to upload into QB; but, the information needs to be in a different format. The string from the download is:

Property Address - 1116 South PaxonBorrower " Testa and Son Contractors,LLCLoan # - 1402088Acct Executive " Brandon Tully

But, I need it to be:

1402040;TPAPR;141 North Clinton Street, East Orange, NJ 07017;Leslie P Carter

Is there a formula that I can use to extract specific information from the original string into columns so I can then concatenate the columns into the information I need to upload? Or is there a better way to do this? The Property Address and Borrower Name are not static sizes so I can't use a formula that counts spaces.

Format Into Text/ Number Value

May 15, 2009

I have a data set which is in a date format of MM/DD/YY. I have converted it to YYYYMMDD. I now need to copy and permanently past the values so that the value within the cell always reads to result of the date in the format of YYYYMMDD.

Example:
-current = 07/01/08
-new format = 20080701 (cell still reads 07/01/08)
-would like the cell to read 20080701

My main goal is to bring this into Access and use this dataset with another data set, which uses the YYYYMMDD format.

Insert Text In Front Of Text OR Number - User Defined Format

Sep 24, 2008

I can't seem to make user-defined format that puts a text in front of a number and/or a text.

Let's say I have A1: 13, A2: texttext A3: text7 and I want to format a lot of cells to "Ilike 13" / "Ilike texttext" / "Ilike text7"... ie add the same text in the front of the cell, no matter what the content is.

I did manage it seperately, with "texttext" @ for text and "texttext" # for numbers, but what's the general one?

Format Small Number Of Cells From Text To Number?

Mar 19, 2014

Text to Number or General.xlsx

The included, small database is formatted as text. It is a text feed from an outside source. I simply want to format the cells into either numbers or general format but not text... seems simple, and it should be, but the only way I can get this done is to go to each cell and access the formula bar and re-enter the number by pressing Enter.

Keep Number Format When Converting To Text

Jun 30, 2009

I have an excel file that is used to create a large text file. This is all done manually so I wrote some code to create the file automatically. I have everything working except that I am losing some info. The info is zeros after the decimal point. Almost all of the cells are formatted as numbers with 3 decimal places. It is common to have values of 0.000 that end up just 0 when they are written to the text file. Is there a way to keep the formatting (all decimal places)? Here is an example of code that I am using to write data directly from a cell to the file.

Userform Text Box Number Format

May 29, 2007

The problem is even though the worksheet cell is formated to 3 places the text box in the Userform shows many more than this. I have used the Control Source set to read the cell value.

The answer I've seen 'txtValue = Format(Value, "000.00")' which seems very neat and tidy but I'm not sure how to use it or where to place it.

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

Multiple Userform Text Box Number Format

However I have thirty text boxes on the Userform all linked to cells on a sheet. How do I apply this so that I dont have thirty lines of code. It just does not look elegant. I'm doing this because the number on the userform shows more decimal places than the cells format. Cell formated to 3 places Userform shows about 9 mostly .999999 etc

Custom Number Format With Wrap & Text

Sep 14, 2007

I have been playing with custom formats recently and I'm wondering if there is anyway to make them wrap?

specifically I have several results that I have been formatting to show what they are related to

397235 visitors 392648 visitors 365487 visitors

I want these to display as visitors, but still be numbers so that they can be summed etc.
The problem is that I need the text to wrap so that visitors is on the second line in the cell. unfortunatley all i get is a ########## error to show the cell is not wide enough even with wrap text turned on.

Number Format Based On Corresponding Cells Text

May 15, 2008

Cell L90 to L120 are input cells where I type " Percentage" or "Dollar Amount". I need the five cells to the right of each input cell starting two cells over, to be formatted accordingly. I read a thread similar to what I'm asking for suggesting a worksheet change macro, but I can't quite figure it out for a range of cells. Also, in case I need to add a row to my sheet before all of these cells, how can I make sure that this will still work without having to go into the code. Is this an activecell thing?

Convert A Date Format To A Text Format

Oct 6, 2008

Example......

In D2 I have: =B2
In D3 I have manually input: (space)3-08

As you can see the CONCATENATE puts the "39569" date in A2 But the second line puts the text date as I prefer. What I would like to do is put in a formula or macro in D2 and down that will change the "Mar-08" to "3-08" so it CONCATENATEs correctly to column A. Simply: I'm trying to avoid manually inputing the text version "3-08" (or whatever M-Y) into D2 down a hundred or so rows!

VBA: Format Amts Into Text $ 9.99 Type Format

Feb 13, 2008

Need to create a set of aligned text amts from various cells...Tried Format but unable to get right combination...I've looked at many threads and most seem related to getting amt from text instead of reverse.

Cell may contain nothing or a monetary amt, negative or positive. Output needs to be in format of "$9,999.99-" or similar...with leading zeros suppressed but a min of "$ 0.00" showing, so that above/below amts with be decimal point aligned in a fixed font situation.

I've almost gotten my routine finsihed but this is last remaining obstacle.
