I need to underline text which is populated from a formula. How to format numbers, dollars and dates within a formula, but how to underline text.
Desired Result: The employee's who sold more than 100 cars this month are: Alex, Mike and Tim. Please congratulate them on their performance!
Formula being used ="The employee's who sold more than 100 cars this month are: "&cell reference&"Please congratulate them on their performance!"
Current result: The employee's who sold more than 100 cars this month are: Alex Mike Tim Please congratulate them on their performance!
Attempts: I wish underlining text were an option within Format Cells/Custom so I could just use the formula =text(cell reference, "underline"). However, I don't see that as an option in the 2007 or 2010 versions. Is there a way to add "underline text" as my own custom format?
I also tried using "Conditional Formatting" (both "Format cells only that contain" and "Use a formula to determine which cells to format)." I can't quite get it because I don't know how to list names for the former conditional formatting. Vlookup is the only way I know how to refer to a list for the formula based conditional formatting, but this would stop after the first name on the list is found and ignore the rest of them.
Is it possible to underline text with differenet color? Text is let say std. black, and need red underline. (I can change color of cell down but I would like underline line in right test test. underline.xls
I am using the VLOOKUP function in a cell, however, I would like the value returned to also retain the text format from the table (eg colour and bold). I have attached a simple example (to demonstrate the point) where cell B14 should have the word 'French' in bold red.Example.xlsx
i'm having trouble working coming up with a formula. I have a list of people and if i put a x next to their name, i want their name to cross outs. the IF formula does not copy over the format (strikethrough, italics). my question is, what formula would copy this over and change the text?
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?
My spreadsheet is locked and protected, and i have found out that the BOLD, underline and italic functions have been disabled, is there anything i could do via VBA to keep these functions active,...????
look at the attached file. How can I have the text values in Column A automatically be underlined if the concerning value in Column C drops below the value "1"? Note that Column C wont give you number values in this sample book as it refers to another file on my hd.
I need bolding and underlining cells that are "Concatenated". For example, cell format for cell K12 is already bolded and underlined. If I concatenate (C1,K12,D2) I get a result that doesn't carry over the format of those individual cells - particularly K12 which I want BOLDED and UNDERLINED.
When I enter some text into a TextBox, the first character is fine, but after the second character has been entered, the font seems to develop an underline. I've created a Word document with screenprints but have been unable to make it small enough to upload here, despite trying for the past couple of hours! You can therefore see the document here ... http://www.keepandshare.com/doc/view.php?id=508384&da=y
Notice the difference between the bold underline and the normal ones. There is also some weird thing happening where in some cells, when I use the underline feature, it shows as a bold underline, but once I've pressed enter to move on to another cell, the underline reverts back to normal. If I select to edit (F2 or double-clicking) said cell, the underline becomes bold, and vice versa (s3lw.png).
All this started happening immediately after I did this (was just experimenting, and I have no idea what this actually does, or if it was the cause of those occurences): Insert > Symbol > Special Characters > No-width optional break. I did that to just one cell though, and now all this weird stuff is happening.
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 have an excel sheet full of dates in text format and want to convert them into regular format. For instance, one of the dates listed is in text as "60801". I'd like it to show in regular date format of mm/dd/yyyy, so that 60801 becomes 8/1/2006.
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!
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.
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)
I have a long list of dates that are fomatted as 3-12-13 that I want to format under custom date as d-mmm-yy : 12-Mar-13. I tried to do this but it does not change. I tried to change it to a number and that didn't work either.
On the attached example i have a list of fractions (in the format ?/???). However, i have a problem when the fraction is 6/4 or 4/6 as excel rounds the nominator and de-nominator down to the lowest value so these fractions become 3/2 and 2/3. For these two fractions only i don't want this rounding down to happen.
I am open to any suggestions, but i was thinking of some vba where on pressing a button it would run a macro that went through the cells in the column and if the cell value is 1.5 (3/2) then format the cell as text and enter the value"6/4". For the 2/3 fraction, i think you may need to say if the cell is greater than 0.66 and less than 0.67 because this would possibly be harder to exact as the number of decimal places involved.
How to format different numbers to the same format (as text). Mainly I need code that would format numbers like 25, 25.36 or 254.60 to numbers looking like this 000002500, 000002536, 000025460. They must be of nine digit length with the last two digits as decimals.
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?
I have a few tasks which I have been doing manually because I do not know if there is a way to accomplish these tasks automatically via some excel formulas.
My first task requires me to take an address, for example: 1234 CAMBIE STREET, and format it such that it is properly capitalized (only capital letters in the front of words) like this: 1234 Cambie Street
My second task involves taking an address, for example: 1234 1st Avenue W, and rearranging it such that the direction is in front of the street name like so: 1234 W 1st Avenue. What makes this task potentially even more complicated is that not all the addresses I am working with require the rearrangement, so I can't simply have a formula that puts the last group of characters in front of the first group of characters because that may screw up addresses that don't require this formatting.
My third task demands that 2 columns of names are combined into one column, while also simultaneously placing a "&" between the names. For example: Jonathan Parkinson | Sarah Parkinson turns into Jonathan Parkinson & Sarah Parkinson. Now I do understand how to use a simple combining formula (=a1&" & "&b1) but it isn't that simple. The columns are not all filled with names. Some pairs may have no names, whereas others may have only one name. Because of this, the formula I used as an example will result in many instances where all I see is a "&", and other instances where I see the first name, followed by an unnecessary "&".
So far, for the majority of these problems, I've been using a combination of manual data input, and the replace function, but I really do hope there is a faster and better way to go about these tasks.
