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.

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.

Number Format To Display 20 Character Long Number?

Jul 9, 2014

I received a request from a coworker regarding custom formatting some numbers in his spreadsheet. Those numbers are serial numbers of 20 characters long. Sometimes in my files I use this custom number formatting ###0 and its enough for the data I handle. But when I tried to use it in his spreadsheet, the following shows:

8456891070060510000

The cell must look like this: 08456891070060510302

The reason to have it like this is due to a Delivery Program requirement to deliver Set-top Units for repair. The Delivery Program do not recognize other format than the above. My coworker takes the data from a spreadsheet, and the spreadsheet needs a custom number format to display the correct number.

find a custom number format to be able to display as my coworker need it??

Conditional Number Format - To Be Used As Number

Apr 22, 2009

In Excel 2003, I have a series of complex(ish) lookups which populate cells in Sheet 1 from other sheets in the same workbook. Some of these cells are %ges some are not, I need to display the resultant sheet values as %ges or not based on if the cell to the left (also populated by a complex(ish) lookup) contains the character "%".

I cannot just format the cell on its own, as the list in itself is volatile and can change according to the complex(ish) lookup,

The main problem with this is I need the result to be a numeric value and NOT text in ALL cases as further calculations will be undertaken on them.

In simple if it is a %ge I need to see the %ge and use it as a %ge or if it is just a number see it as a number and use it as a number.

e.g

A B Result Req
Satisfaction with telephone access (%) 0.900032390.0%
Ability to see boss within 48 hours () 0.889 0.889

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

Number And Date Format

Aug 27, 2007

In Excel is there are way to format a cell automatically dependent on the value in another cell? Specifically, if the user selects "410" from a list in cell O9 and enters numeric characters into cell K6 the format of cell K6 is a whole number. However, if the user selects any other number from the list in cell O9 and enters numeric characters into cell K6 the format of cell K6 is now in dollars. I tried using custom in Excel, which I really would like have it in, with no sucess. I am now thinking the only way to accomplish this task is by VBA code. I am ok with formulas; VBA is a different story.

Macro Changes Number Format

Nov 27, 2008

From an accounting system I download txt files that then are read into Excel in order to be workable. The numbers come out like this 1.234,00 (ie decimal as comma separator and dot as thousand separator). This does not work in Sweden so I need to get rid of the dot.
I have built a macro that apart from taking out the dot makes some other changes to the data so that one wont have to do the same thing everytime ones downloads the same type of file. The problem is that when creating the macro or just doing the text to column, number format, replacing . with nothing it all works well but when I run the macro some of the numbers become text, others are ok and for some of them the macro does not only take out the dot but also the comma (which makes a huge difference). I have both Excel 2003 and 2007 and the same thing happens with both.....

Format: Number And Reverse

Jun 20, 2006

I have a userform into which a user can enter a number. When they exit the TextBox the number that they entered must be formatted into the number format. eg 12345,67 -> 12.345,67 and -12345,67 -> (12.345,67). To do this is not the problem: formatnumber does the trick. What I am struggling with is to get VB to still recognise this as a number. I need the code that does the opposite of formatnumber. (12.345,67) -> -12345,67. I excell it works perfectly when you format a cell as custom: _(* #,##0.00_);_(* (#,##0.00);_(* "-"??_);_(@_). I want to be able to do the exact same thing in VB.

Change Format Of Cell Into Number?

Dec 15, 2013

I am having slight trouble with the formatting of some cells. Every month I will be copying data into a row, the problem is Excel thinks it's a date instead of an integer of some sort.

The value copied will look something like this:
79:42:00
(meaning 79 hours and 42 minutes)

Excel is taking that and interpreting it as:
1/3/1900 7:42:00 AM

Is there an easy way to format this so Excel thinks it's a number (even if 79.7).

I tried to change the format of the cell to "Text", but it changes it to: 3.32083333333333

Number Format And Duplicates Check

Dec 17, 2008

I am trying to improve my expense report template and need to check on the load if expense report number has been loaded correctly as well as if this report has been previously loaded. Expense report number format looks like this: AAA-BBBBBB-CC
Where:

AAA Employee ID #
BBBBBB End of the week date

CC Weekly expense report number
For instance, 023-122008-01 means: Employee number 023, week ending date 12/20/2008, weekly expense report number 01. I would like to prevent/give warning of loading incorrect expense report number format, check for possible duplicates, and check if trying to load expense report belongs to the right person (by simply matching previously loaded in different cell of the same sheet employee ID and first three digits of just loaded expense report number. I think I know how to do all of these separate, but have no idea how to combine all three checks for one cell.
