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)
I have a problem that when I try to convert text to number and format the number without 2 decimal places as seen on the link I have given below, Instead of 1607.947, I get 1607947. I have Excel 2010 loaded. The details are in below picture.
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:
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??
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.
I used to get data from a database (CorVu & MIMS) in this format "0122458/001". Due to changes in those Databases I now get the data as 2 columns " 0122458" and "1" .What I need to do is somehow get this back to the old format including the leading zeros.
I have a standard block of text with numbers in it pulled from various calculations in a financial model. I have done this through a formula
e.g. ="You gross profit percentage is " & D9 & "% and your gross profit is $" & D10 & "." Problem is i'd like to format the numbers that pull through so they are easier to read. At the moment in the above example D10 results in $-600000000. I'd like it to look like $(600,000,000).
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.

492 500 773 738 572 492 When I repeat this number I need that the first (492) be formatted with a color and continuous like this 200 572 format the first 572 492 format the next 492 but the actual number stays without formatting!
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.
Please take a look at the attached spreadsheet. in the ODDS column D, after download the some of the data has been changed from say 100-1 to a series of numbers how do i change them back i would also like to show the odds is they were 100-1 as just 100 and say if the odds were 13/2 then i want to show 7.5 basically i want th first number divided by the second.
I am trying to format a cell that contains the weekday number to display the name of the day but still keep its weekday number value. For Example, a cell contain the value of 2. This value is Monday as per Excel Weekday() value. I want to still keep the value as 2 but I want it displayed as Mon. If the value is 5 then I want it displayed as Thr.
Is there a way when creating a custom format display for a number that I can state 1="Sun"; 2="Mon"; 3="Tue"; 4="Wed"; 5="Thr"; 6="Fri"; 7="Sat".
I have a userform that contains textbox's that are linked to excel cells and i was wondering if there is a way to format the textbox to show the values in the number format. As the cells values are constantly changing the following code only works if the number is in the hundred of billions but if the number changed to 10,000 for example the format would not adapt.
Private Sub TextBox1_Change() Me.TextBox5 = Format$(CStr(ThisWorkbook.Sheets("ISN").Range("H1").Value) * Val(TextBox1.Text), "###,###,###,###") End Sub
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.
