I have a series of dependent drop lists and a cell which asks for a phone number. I would like if the selection in the previous cell is North America, the format of (111) 111-1111 is chosen. if the user enters the improper format I would like them to be prompt with an error "Improper Format - <Proper Format>", clear contents, and re-select the cell otherwise if valid select the next cell. It would need to strip out the leading 1 incase an international code is entered and also special characters such as "(",")","-","+","_" as well as spaces.
The next problem is that it would have to change format to if another selection is chosen. The other two selections are Australia and Europe. Europe is more difficult of a format as the area codes vary in length. I will be dealing predominantly with Sweden whose area codes even vary. For Australia I would like it to be in the format 011 61 1 1111 1111 where 011 61 will be added even if the user does not enter it (or if not possible prompt with proper format).
The cell asking which continent is G35 and options are "","Australia", "Europe", "North America"
PHONE formatting. Is there a way to create a macro to format the VALUE of the phone to be either (XXX) XXX-XXX or XXX-XXX-XXXX ? I obviously can get it to look like this, but the value is just XXXXXXXXXX.
I am building a contact database in excel. I am using a userform to search, by autofilter, through several thousand contacts by any one of 7 criteria(account name, postal code,, account number, etc.). The only criteria that I cannot get to work is the phone number.
The numbers are entered in a ten digit string and the cells are formatted as phone numbers. i.e: 8005551212 = (800) 555-1212. When I run the search by the 10 digit number, the autofilter hides all results.
I'd like to dial phone numbers directly from a specific column on a worksheet just by doubleclicking on them.
I found this code which I am trying to adapt to my use.
The hardware part is setup already (modem, phone line, etc.)
Private Sub Dial(Number) Dim DialString As String Dim FromModem As String Dim dummy As Integer
' AT is the Hayes compatible ATTENTION command and is required to send commands to the modem. ' DT means "Dial Tone." The Dial command uses touch tones, as opposed to pulse (DP = Dial Pulse). ' Numbers is the phone number being dialed. ' A semicolon tells the modem to return to command mode after dialing (important). ' A carriage return, vbCr, is required when sending commands to the modem. DialString = "ATDT" + Number + ";" + vbCr
I am getting an error message when I doubleclick that says :Runtime Error 424 , Object
Required and then I'm taken to the code line that is in Bold Yellow. Dealing with Comm
Ports is too much for me. I only know that my modem is in Com Port 4. If I'm told what to
I have an old customer list maintained by my company's previous owner in excel format that mostly stored numbers ###-#### format, but also some in ###-###-#### format.
My new list has always been maintained with numbers in (###) ###-#### format.
I have merged these two lists in a new excel file have begun the tedious process of cleaning up duplicates and bad data.
I have used conditional formatting to highlight duplicate numbers in the appropriate columns (L, M, N, O) in this case. However, it does't find matches in the other formats or perhaps the number with the old area code. I know the area code change could lead to false positives, but they should be minimal as this is a small business with mostly local customers. So what I'd like to find out is a formula for conditional formatting that will compare the last 8 characters in each cell (###-####) so as to eliminate issues of missing or different area codes. I would like it to check all of the columns for duplicate numbers not just within each column or within each row individually.
Also separate but related if possible to highlight a different color any cells with data not in any of these formats or if not in (###) ###-#### format if it's too much for all the formats.
I need to reformat phone numbers in Excel, and I am having trouble doing so. I do not have VBA experience, but I am somewhat familiar with functions in Excel. I need to go from 555-555-5555 to (555) 555-5555
I have the following text, in which I need separated into three columns.
Column A) Company Name Column B) Address Column C) Phone Number
I was thinking perhaps I could replace "-------" to just one "-" and use that delimiter to separate the phone number.
Then Use *** Company Name Here *** --> *Number Variable* and filter the rest..
But I don't see it being able to work.Here is the text I'm looking to format (Mind you there is about 8,000 Records. And, it's all formatted like below. (Company Name, phone number being on different lines and phone number being separated by dash's
I have our company telephone accounts and im trying to highlight any numbers that are not on our approved dialling list. What I would like to happen (ideally) would be for a formula to look at the cell next to it and compare it with the approved numbers list, if it doesn’t appear on the list then it would do something to let me know, like put a big red X in the cell (if it could make me a cup of Tea instead that would be better).
Is there a way to extract a phone number out of a string of text. The phone number will always be expressed the same way (eight digits seperated by a space half way through) - 9999 9999. But the text before and after the number is random. Is there a macro to do this on a large scale? The method needs to be applied to hundreds of these strings, each on a new line.
An example of the string of text with the phone number underlined:
I have a very long list of international phone numbers in a .csv format that I need to put a zero in front of each one. We are doing an international autodialer campaign for an upcoming event and need the zeros at the beginning to pay for the call. How do you get around Excel not allowing a zero at the front of a number and the .csv format not allowing you to save certain formats? I've been searching the archived posts for a hour now and can't find anything on this!
I am trying to format a cell (in Excel 2010) as a phone number. The problemis that the data comes over from our download as text. Is there an easier way then using the 'SUBSTITUTE' function to change format to a true phone number (so that we can mail merge into WORD)? Since it is extracted out as a text, using the 'phone number' format (under special) will not work. Using the 'SUBSTITUTE' formula to remove the parenthesis', the dash and the space work but is cumbersome.
Below is an example of the text format that is being extracted: (706) 378-7585
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.
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.
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.
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)
